Olson plays waiting game with cabinet appointment By Dan Jensen

Wetaskiwin-Camrose MLA and Justice Minister Verlyn Olson admitted last week that he is as much in the dark as anyone else as to who will be in the government's cabinet under Premier Alison Redford. "I think she is go ing to be making those decisions over this long weekend and announcing them next week," he said at the Chamber of Commerce meeting Oct. 5. "I wouldn't be surprised at all to see some new faces there." Olson said there was a feeling in the last two days of the leadership race that Redford was gaining momentum. "She ran a v ery strategic campaign and she took some

risks, but they wound up paying off." "She mobilized the vote and she won fair and square." Olson was disappointed for Gary Mar, who he described back in August as a team builder with the ability to tap into foreign markets. "I said to somebody yesterday that when you have a competition like this you generally have more losers than you have winners, and the losers are obviously disappointed," he said. "So many of us who were on teams that lost had some wounds to lick." Olson was impressed with how quickly Redford reached out to everyone in the Conservative party.

"She is really working at building and maintaining relationships and, as a re sult, there was a very good feeling in caucus yesterday," he said. "I think everyone left caucus with a big smile." Olson feels Redford will be a strong leader in the sense that she has a s trong conviction or sense of where she wants to go in the future. "She is very bright, very determined," he said. "I h eard a political commentator say that the most important words you will hear her utter are 'I am fairly impatient'. I think that probably is a good description." Olson was part of Premier Redford's swearing-in ceremony

in the capacity of provincial secretary. Redford said during her leadership campaign that despite the best of intentions, governments have a habit of amassing power and responsibility to the detriment of local decision-making – something that saps voters' trust and fosters cynicism about the democratic process, leading to low election turnouts and a lack of confidence in democratic institutions. "Regaining trust is critical if Alberta's political system is to stay healthy," she said, "but getting there requires more than platitudes and promises. Albertans want and expect open, transparent and accountable government, one genuinely

responsive to their needs and concerns." Redford has pledged to grow the economy so Alberta can still rely on personal and corporate income taxes for revenue without raising tax rates or hurting the economy and provincial finances. "Reducing our dependence on non-renewable resource revenue will be one of my major goals." she said. "The first $6 billion we amass from resources annually will go to cover government operating costs in areas like public services. I will split any additional revenues up to $4 billion between the Sustainability Fund and the Heritage Trust Fund."

Redford new PC leader By Murray Green

Alison Redford is the new leader of the Alberta Progressive Conservative party. She edged out Gary Mar in a close vote on October 1. The race for the leadership started with six candidates, which was narrowed down to three after a vote on Sept. 17. Mar, Redford and Doug Horner made the second ballot. In the final count on Oct. 2, Redford received 51.11 per cent of the vote, with 37,101 tallies, while Mar came in with 48.89 per cent and 35,491 votes The PCs have been the ruling government in Alberta for the last 40 years. Redford presented a message of unity in Edmonton after her victory. "With this leadership process we have renewed our party,” said Redford. “We have voted for change.” Both Mar and Horner congratulated the new leader. Redford's decision to skip a fa ll session in the legislature was her first as leader. A June election is expected. The premier designate said she is going to honour her promises of improving health care and education, which won her the majority of votes. Party unity was the most important topic after the leadership vote. Premier Ed Stelmach announced he was stepping down in January. Leaders named

Other parties that would likely run in the provincial election have selected leaders for the upcoming election. The Alberta Liberal Party recently selected Raj Sherman as the new leader. Danielle Smith was elected as the leader of the Wildrose Party on Oct. 17, 2009. The Alberta Party is led by Glenn Taylor. Len Skowronski of Calgary was elected as the Alberta Social Credit Party leader on November 3, 2007. Brian Mason became the leader of the New Democrat opposition party on July 13, 2004.

Taking it off Cecelia Lawrence was a little nervous when local barber Arne Mackowosky brought out the tools of his trade to remove her hair at Peavey Mart last week. Cecelia promised Peavey Mart customers and friends she would get a Mohawk haircut while her co-worker, Walter Johnson, promised he would shave part of his beard if, between the two of them, they could raise $2,500 for the Wild Pink Yonder's trail ride fundraiser for breast cancer. Cecelia and Walter express gratitude for the generous support they received.

Churches asked to support refugee committee By Dan Jensen

Messiah Lutheran Church, St. Francis Xavier Church and the United Church are drumming up support for a new refugee committee. A letter detailing the mission of a proposed Camrose InterChurch Refugee Committee and requesting that congregations make appointments to the committee was sent Oct. 5 to members of the Camrose Ministerial Association. The committee (CIRC) would serve to coordinate and encourage the sponsorship, by member churches, of refugee families who wish to settle in Camrose. "As we were contemplating again how we might best address this issue from a Ch ristian perspective, we thought it would be best if we could, as congregations, work together," said CIRC chair and Messiah Lutheran Church member Erhard Pinno. Until now, churches have sponsored refugees separately. Pinno noted the number of congregations who are sponsoring refugees has declined since the arrival of the so-called boat people in the 1980s due in part to the cost and legal obligations. The cost of sponsoring a fa m-

ily for one year can range from $20,000 to $28,000. Some of that can be offset by gifts in kind such as furniture and clothing. Pinno feels having a c ommittee to provide the necessary information about refugee sponsorship a nd outline the refugee situation would be a w ay to get refugee commitments from more congregations. "We live in a w orld where we have many many issues and sometimes refugees are not at the forefront of our concerns, even within congregations," said Pinno. "So we wanted to bring this to their attention and at the same time let them know we are here to provide assistance." A memorandum of understanding that churches are being asked to endorse would enable the CIRC to work cooperatively with Citizenship and Immigration Canada and with appropriate national church agencies recognized as official sponsoring bodies to bring the refugees here. Each congregation would remain as the legal entity responsible for meeting the conditions stipulated in the official sponsorship agreements. CIRC committee members

would provide information to their churches about the committee's activities. Further, the CIRC would plan community events, assist churches in organizing fund-raisers, and provide social, emotional and material support. Pinno said the CIRC would not replace the work of the churches but support them in their efforts. "We would like input from all participating congregations and even from members at large in this process so that we can be as helpful as possible to the different congregations." St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church is w elcoming two refugee families from Iraq, possibly as early as mid November. According to St. Francis Xavier pastoral assistant Joe McMorrow, one family has a mom, dad and three children, while the other has a mom, dad, two children and two grandparents. Both of the families have been living in camps in Syria. "The situation in Syria, as you know, is qu ite explosive, so they are trying to move families out of there rapidly," said McMorrow. Pinno said smaller congregations who are part of the CIRC and do not have the money to

sponsor a re fugee family would be able to work with larger congregations, either serving on a church refugee committee or making a d onation to the sponsoring church. In a situation where several churches work together cooperatively in sponsoring a family, the memorandum of understanding states that one church is designated as the legal sponsoring authority and the other churches direct their support to the sponsorship church. "Anyone can participate in sponsorship," stated Pinno. "It doesn't have to be a member of any particular organization. Even if non church members wish to participate and they know the family that is being sponsored, they can send a cheque and receive a charitable receipt." The CIRC recognizes that not all churches or organizations will want to join its ranks immediately. "We will have to give them time to work through their structures and priorities, but we think, in the long run, this will be the thing that will ensure that we will always be involved in recognizing that there is a n eed for sponsorship and always have

some families in Camrose," said Pinno. Churches who agree to sponsor a refugee family normally pay all of that family's basic expenses – shelter, education and transportation – for one year, after which the family is on its own. In some cases, if a father or mother is able to get a good job, the sponsorship period is less. "For example," said Pinno, "the refugee family that we supported three years ago from Colombia chose to become independent from the government within four months because they had a job and figured they did not need government support. They have been on their own ever since and are doing well." The prelude to the memorandum of understanding states that the task of sponsoring refugee families is more effectively and efficiently carried out by several churches working cooperatively rather than separately. "Hopefully this will be encouragement for congregations who have some impressions or concerns of the bureaucracy of it all and working with the federal government," said Pinno. "It is not so easy and it takes some experience."

Working Well Workshop presented by Camrose County and County of Stettler

Fall into

Help protect your water wells. Have you had your well water tested in the last two years? Have old unused wells on your property been properly sealed and decommissioned? Have you ever shock chlorinated your well? Do you know the age and depth of your well, or how it was constructed? According to Alberta water specialist Ken Williamson, if you answered ‘NO’ to any of these questions, your groundwater supply could be at risk. Despite the fact that 450,000 Albertans rely on groundwater for household use, few know that proper water well construction, siting, and maintenance can help protect your well from contamination. To ensure the safety of your water well, you should also know how far your septic system is from your well. Septic tanks should be regularly pumped and inspected. You should also disinfect your well on a regular basis.

October 26, 2011 in Bashaw at the Bashaw Ag Society Grounds, Main Hall from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Pre-register by October 20th

PEN POINTS by Berdie Fowler

Thanks to firefighters! When was the last time you said “thank you” to a f irefighter? Have you ever said “thank you” to a firefighter? Do you even know a firefighter personally? Chances are good that almost all who are reading this will admit that their answer is “no” to each question. In spite of believing that, I have no doubt that people are aware of, and really do appreciate, the fact that we have welltrained men and women ready to actually jump and rush to save and protect us, whether day or night, whenever fire threatens our lives or property. Our Fire Department doesn’t answer our call for help with “We’re busy now; please leave your name and number and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.” Firemen jump, hustle, with speed don their heavy gear, and get on the way, knowing full well that each particular mission could be one of great loss to others and possibly great personal risk, too. Severe weather, such as extreme heat or cold or wind, greatly increases the hazards. Being a firefighter is no walk in the park! There are a number of ways in which to express our appreciation to firefighters. Number one is to get out of the way when fire engines with sirens blaring are speeding to a blaze. If you are on the road, pull over to the right leaving a lane open for the fire trucks and other emergency vehicles. Also, stay out of the way at the scene of the fire, leaving plenty of space for firefighters to do their work. If the fire hydrant happens to be covered in snow, be helpful and clear it away. After all the publicity, it is amazing that there are people who continue to ignore these messages of safety and plain common sense. Another effective way to show gratitude to our firefighters is to heed their fire prevention messages that are very well publicized and have been for decades. It seems unbelievable that so many people neglect to regularly check their smoke alarms. Fire investigations consistently reveal that doing so would reduce fire fatalities by about half. This is Fire Prevention Week. The theme is Protect your Family from Fire! To do so, families are encouraged to have a well-rehearsed home escape plan, to have a functioning smoke alarm, and to install sprinklers. So doing would benefit ourselves, it would reduce the risk to firefighters and lessen the cost of fire damage and loss of life. It would please firefighters to know that we not only hear their fire prevention messages – but that we will practice them, too. Thank you, firefighters, for your commitment to jump when we call, whether day or night or Christmas Day. Each of you is extra special.

Letters are welcomed but please limit them to 500 words or less and sign with first name, initial, surname, address and phone number; only name of writer and city or town will be printed. Letters to t hird parties are not accepted. The Camrose Booster may edit f or clarity, legality, personal abuse, good taste, public interest and availability of space. The Camrose Booster thanks you for your interest in the letters page and encourages your comments.

9, on September 29, should be applauded. The little boy emptied my cart while the man was paying for his purchases. When I went to pay the cashier, she informed me the gentleman ahead of me had paid my bill. Such acts of kindness should not go unnoticed. If there were more people like you, what a better world this would be. Glenn Olson, Camrose

Dear Berdie: I often read your Pen Points and appreciate your thoughts and research that go into each piece. I especially wish to acknowledge your most recent piece entitled Celebrating the Arts. It is o bvious that you understand and appreciate the value of the arts to a c ommunity whether you are an artist or a c ommunity member. I t oo have not seen any more recent statistics regarding the positive economic impact the arts have on a c ommunity but I s uspect they would be fairly accurate from 2009. As a matter of fact I was surprised and pleased to see that during our recent recession registrations for art classes actually increased! The arts contribute to a better quality of life and sometimes when the chips are down that is when we need the arts the most. As you pointed out Camrose is very rich when it comes to the arts and it was exciting to celebrate that fact this last weekend during Alberta Arts Days. As mentioned in past editorials Camrose was chosen as a host community and as such received a grant of $5,000. This along with the generosity and support of several local businesses and volunteers enabled us to be able to offer a wide variety of activities free to the public. For the most part everything was well attended and all of the activities were very much appreciated. I c an’t count the number of positive remarks I have received both verbally and in writing. Putting this type of weekend event together is very rewarding. It was a pleasure to see the smiling faces of the artists, patrons, volunteers and businesses. It was also a p leasure to be able to work with the Bailey Theatre staff and to be able to give some of our local performers a chance to perform there for the first time. Thank you so m uch to everyone who made Alberta Arts Days a success! Jane Cherry-Lemire, Camrose committee member, Alberta Arts Days

Dear Editor: I was asked a q uestion in the letter to the editor from Mary Warke that I t hink requires an answer. I have two children of driving age, one who is d riving now, and one who will get his licence shortly. I h ave not supplied either of them with a vehicle. They both have purchased their own vehicles. They both will pay for their own insurance and maintenance. My children are responsible for their own actions. If something happens that their insurance increases, they will still pay for it themselves. If they can't afford it they will not drive. I have not, and will not, give anything to my children on a golden platter. I believe the way to teach children responsibility is to make them have responsibility. I d o not claim to have perfect children. Every child will make mistakes for which they should be held responsible. Teaching children respect and responsibility does begin in the home, not at the end of a s tick. I do believe very strongly that installing traffic controls in the mall parking lot would help to cut down on unacceptable speeds and accidents. I cannot claim to know what speeds my children are driving at all times, to do so would be wrong of me. It is also wrong to imply that all the problems in the mall parking lot are caused by young people. One cannot paint all young people with the same brush. Brent Bonner, Camrose

Dear Editor: The gentleman and little boy who were ahead of me in Walmart, checkout line number

Dear Editor: Quality Healthcare in Camrose In an age where healthcare budgets are being cut, hospitals are suffering from healthcare staff shortages and wait times for procedures are staggering, it is often easy to shine a grim light on medical care. I a m pleased to say that my recent experience with Camrose healthcare was nothing short of commendable. The past two years were the worst of my life. I suffered from an illness that was difficult to diagnose followed by three surgeries resulting in five months at St. M ary’s, including a w eek in Daysland. Fear,

depression and anger became my new companions. When I was forced to quit my position as a re porter for The Camrose Canadian, I w as devastated. Had it not been for the warm, caring and competent treatment I received by virtually all of the 100 plus healthcare professionals I came in contact with, I don’t know where I would be today. First and foremost, I would like to thank Dr. Awakan and his nurses Donna and Judy for following me tirelessly on this journey from the start, directing me to the appropriate specialists for proper diagnosis, taking frantic calls at all hours and really listening and caring for my (and my husband’s) wellbeing. Your kindness, concern and competence will not be forgotten. Thanks (huge) to Joanne Thomsen from homecare for trusting your instincts; if not for you I would probably still be home-bound and crazy! Hugs to Melanie Sorgen and all of the wonderful ladies from homecare who came to my home and made me smile. Special thanks to Dr. Kumar, whose excellent surgical skills are the reason I a m walking today while the wheelchair collects dust in the basement and to Dr. Slabbert for keeping my pain at bay and assuring me that I would be running around with the swans in no time! To the cheerful nurses of unit two at Saint Mary’s for allowing my family to literally bring Christmas to my hospital room, turkey dinner, presents, tree and all! I have the utmost respect and gratitude for my friends at unit five, which became my second home. You all saw me through the worst and treated me with kindness and dignity always. Each a nd every one of you is a class act. Thanks to Anita from pharmacy for understanding and going above and beyond, you are an angel. To all of our friends and neighbours for your prayers, support (and yummy baked treats!) thank-you for reminding us that we were not alone. I t hank my Camrose Canadian family and Murray Green from The Booster for your understanding and friendship. I miss you all! Hugs to Paulie for your undying support and friendship; we love you. Most of all, I would like to thank my amazing husband Chad for vigilantly being by my side, never missing a da y at the hospital, all the sacrifices you have made and for truly believing in the vow, ‘In sickness and in health.’ Kelly Barrett Camrose

Hope is better than fear For many Canadians last spring was a u niquely exciting and hopeful time. A f lood of support across the country made the NDP the official opposition for the first time. And for the first time Canadians were shown a cl ear choice between conservatism and social democracy. The summer, however, was brutal. Drought and starvation in the Horn of Africa. Vicious bombing and mass murder in Norway, of all places. And then in August – a t the pinnacle of his career – the heartbreaking loss of Jack Layton to cancer. But Jack’s death – a nd we all called him just Jack, just like that, like we knew him personally – J ack’s death was followed by an orange crush of heartfelt grief from every corner of the country. This was not the death of a gla morous princess or an idolized pop star but that of a vital, active, partisan politician. And yet the entire country appeared stunned into respectful silence and genuine sorrow.

Second Thought By Dr. John Johansen Professor, English Augustana Faculty, University of Alberta

Why? Certainly it was not only New Democrats or people who voted for them who mourned. Apart from a ch urlish columnist or two, the sadness and sharp sense of loss crossed party lines. Jack’s final letter to Canadians might indeed have been a “ manifesto for social democracy,” as Stephen Lewis suggested in his eulogy. But many who mourned were anything but social democrats. I think Jack’s cruel death made Canadians realize that we had been shown a v ision – had had a v isionary amongst us – of civility and decency, caring and hospitality, at the heart of our conventional politi-

10

cal order. Jack’s vision was of what society should and could be, a so ciety in which no one was left behind. His vision struck a ch ord because in our heart of hearts we know we believe in fairness, generosity, and working together. Jack’s energetic NDP election campaign had shown that there was a go od nation here, one beyond ethnic and linguistic division, one larger than corporate tax cuts and more prisons. He had shown us that politics and joy do not have to be strangers. Jack gave us a glimpse of what we could be and what we know we want to be. Will Jack’s death mean we

no longer want these things for ourselves? Will the loss of the visionary mean the end of the vision? Many were left bereft, afraid and suddenly angry that the vision might never come to pass. It struck us that maybe the tired grey morass of politics as usual would be all we could ever know. Jack’s letter, however, anticipated our response and reminded us that he represented a party whose very purpose is to create a socially democratic Canada in which everyone has the tools they need to succeed: freedom from isolation and oppression, good public education and health services, pensions and childcare. He also reminded us all that love can drive out anger, that optimism trumps despair, that hope can put an end to fear. That if we continue to work hard and work together we can put the old politics behind us, and we can indeed make our nation and our world better. Rise up, rise up!

City council has deferred to upcoming budget deliberations a re quest by the Camrose Regional Exhibition for a $3,000 sponsorship of its 10th annual Growing Rural Tourism conference, April 2 to 4, 2012. "It has been a v ery successful conference for a number of years," said City councillor Gerry Galenza in a c ommittee of the whole council meeting Oct. 3. "It promotes the image of the city with people from all over the province." A survey of the 240 delegates to the 2011 conference indicated that 92 per cent plan to attend again in 2012 and that 95 would recommend the conference to others. "These numbers speak to the quality and importance of the conference to the tourism industry," said CRE general manager and Growing Rural Tourism Conference co-chair Wynn McLean. Councillor John Howard said the question of supporting the conference is a "no-brainer," and that the City of Camrose should go t he extra mile by spending another $2,000 at the conference for a trade show booth. "Having a 10 by 10 display will give us a chance to showcase Camrose." Councillor Ray McIsaac thanked the CRE for giving the City of Camrose the opportunity to be part of the conference. "It is something we need to support," he said. Objectives of the 2012 Growing Rural Tourism Conference are to: come up with some concrete examples and tools for rural areas to take home with them to use; to raise the bar for tourism education in rural Alberta and provide program steams to accommodate advanced tourism leaders, as well as newcomers to the industry; to provide both general and targeted networking opportunities for delegates and sponsors, and to showcase the host region. Participants will include rural municipalities, Chambers of Commerce, agricultural societies, accommodation groups, agri-tourism operations, tourism attraction operations, event coordinators, tourism committees, nature/adventure tourism operators, and heritage, recreational and cultural associations and operators. McLean told council that tourism is Alberta's fourth largest industry, ranking behind the petro-chemical industry, forestry and agriculture. He added that events like the Big Valley Jamboree make a significant contribution to the city of Camrose and to the province. The request for a $ 3,000 sponsorship of the Growing Rural Tourism Conference is the same as the amount that was approved in the 2011 City of Camrose budget.

“Great Fire Escape” Home Fire Drill Wednesday, Oct. 12, 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.

We have all heard about a family that loses everything in a fire. We can’t imagine what it would be like and we hope it never happens to us. There are many things that we can do to prevent fires from happening in our homes. Kitchen Kitchens are where most fires happen in Alberta homes. The best way to prevent a cooking fire is to stay in the kitchen and pay close attention to what’s cooking on the stovetop. Also, keep items that can catch fire well away from the stove. If you experience a small pan fire, turn off the heat, put on an oven mitt and carefully slide a tight-fitting lid over the pan. This cuts the oxygen and allows the fire to die down. Leave the pan covered and in place until it has completely cooled. Never throw water on a flaming pan or pot of oil because an explosion of flaming oil droplets will erupt, spreading the fire and causing injuries. Bedrooms Avoid smoking in bed. Put out candles before going to bed and never leave a candle unattended. Have working smoke alarms on every level of the home, including the basement. For added protection, install smoke alarms inside each bedroom. Bathroom Hot water burns like fire. You can prevent hot-water burns by replacing the shower head and tub spout with new models that have anti-scald technology. Care must be taken when bathing babies and young children who have very thin skins and are easily scalded by hot water that may be bearable to an adult’s hand. The same caution applies to the frail and the elderly. Living Room Do not overload electrical outlets. Make sure an adult is in the room and paying attention when a candle is lit and be sure the candle is blown out before leaving the room. Basement Store flammable products outside your home. Vapours from gasoline, paint thinner and other similar products can ignite by open flames such as the pilot lights. Laundry Room Lint that builds up in the dryer is a fire hazard. Clean the lint trap after every load of laundry. Occasionally, use the vacuum attachment to clean inside the dryer vent. Only use the dryer when you are home and turn it off if you go out. Garage Store only small amounts of gasoline in a locked cabinet or shed and use a tightly-sealed container approved for gasoline storage. Lock your garage to prevent potential arsonists or vandals from entering and setting fire.

Keep your cool when the alarm sounds Plan your escape Imagine awakening from your sleep to hear your smoke alarm beeping. You are groggy, confused and scared. This is a time when many people panic and end up making serious – sometimes fatal – mistakes. Make sure that everyone in your home knows exactly what to do when the alarm sounds or there is smoke or fire. A good escape plan that your family has practiced will help everyone deal with a scary situation in a calm and safe manner. • Get out quickly if there is a fire because fire moves extremely fast. You may have only three minutes or less before the toxic smoke overtakes you (please visit: www.3minutedrill.alberta.ca) • Teach children to never hide in closets or under beds. • Choose two ways out of every room. If heat or smoke blocks the usual fire exit (door), then use the second way out (another door or the window). • Test doors before opening them: feel the door and look for smoke coming in around the edges. If the door is not hot and there is no smoke coming in, open it slowly, but be prepared to slam it shut if heat or smoke rush in. If the door is hot, use your other exit. • If you must escape through smoke, get low and go under the smoke to the nearest exit. Smoke will rise to the ceiling, leaving cooler, cleaner air close to the floor. • Parents should take into account the limitations of young children, the elderly or disabled when planning a fire escape. • If you live in an apartment building and the smoke alarm goes off, only use the stairs. Never use an elevator. • Choose a family meeting spot, a safe distance away from the home. It can be as simple as meeting under a neighbour’s tree. • Practice, practice, practice. If your family has rehearsed various emergencies regularly, they will know exactly what to do if the real thing occurs. When you are making your escape plan, do not assume young children will be woken by a smoke alarm. According to recent research, children under the age of 9 experience the deepest sleep of all groups studied. If you have young children at home, it is best to practice your home fire escape drill during sleeping hours. It is an adult’s responsibility to awaken young children during a fire emergency and get them out safely.

A Harvest Gala will celebrate the fall season and help raise funds for two local groups. The Open Door and the Gardner Kids' Campus are partnering to host the event at the Camrose Regional Exhibition on October 29. "The proceeds will be split between the two groups, so the community will be helping children and youth from babies to young adults," said Randal Nickel, executive director of The Open Door. "People will still be given a chance to donate funds to either one of the organizations as well." The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. and the dinner is scheduled for 7 p.m. Items will be up for bids during a silent auction. A dance featuring local groups the Bloozhounds and DJ Brian Dumont will start at 9 p.m. "We wanted to partner together because this is our first gala and it brings together volunteers from both groups," added Randal. "The guest speaker will be city councillor John Howard." The theme of the evening will be Investing in Children and Youth Is a Good Investment. Tickets are $50 each, or a table of eight for $350. They are available at The Open Door, Creative Bedrooms, Norsemen Inn, Wideman Paint and Decor, Boston Pizza and at the Gardner Kids' Campus.

2012 Festival of Trees to have different look By Dan Jensen

The popular Festival of Trees will have a bit of a different look for 2011. "We've made some changes that we think are going to improve the event," said Camrose Regional Exhibition spokesperson Marilyn Lee. The biggest change will be the replacement of the sponsor's dinner on Nov. 24 with a new prefestival gala in the main show area called Unwrap the Magic, presented by Central Agencies. "It's going to be a c hance for Festival guests and sponsors to surround themselves with the sights and sounds of Christmas as they sip on signature drinks, enjoy gourmet hors d'oeuvres and enjoy live entertainment," said Lee. The gala will also provide an opportunity to bid on a go od selection of silent and live auction items. "We're basically giving people a sneak preview of the show and space in a re laxed but fun atmosphere," said CRE general manager Wynn McLean. Another pre-Festival event will be the always popular Camrose Chrysler Teddy Bear Disco Nov. 23 for children up to the age of 12. "All children attending must be accompanied by a pa rent," said Lee. Changes to the Festival itself Nov. 25, 26 and 27 will include alterations to Children's World to allow for improved utilization of space and traffic flow, and an expansion of the Castle Shoppe, where shoppers will be able to look for gifts within their budget and price range.

The Festival of T rees will feature seasonal music as they Unwrap the Magic and celebrate the preChristmas holiday season. The festival showcases crafts, gingerbread houses and children's activities.

As has been the case in the past, a separate area will be set aside at the Festival of Trees for trees of sponsors who make a donation of $500 or more. "We're going to be giving sponsors an opportunity to take a tree from our hold, decorate it and put it on display in the sponsors' area," said Lee. "Once the Festival is over the sponsor

will be able to take the tree to his or her business or home and show it off for the remainder of the Christmas season." Sponsors will receive three full days of exposure to an annual attendance of 10,000. "Sponsors of the Festival of Trees demonstrated their good will, community support and Christmas spirit," said Lee.

Schools, human service agencies, churches, clubs and organizations will be able to participate in the Festival of Trees by entering a c ompetition tree before Nov 4. Entries will be grouped according to the age ranges of those competing (children's clubs, service clubs, schools). "One of the criteria for the

entries is t hat all decorations be hand made," said Lee. Another part of the Festival will be the gingerbread house decorating competition. "People will be able to bring in their gingerbread houses and put them on display for the duration of the event," said Lee. The Festival's trade show, organized by the Camrose Arts Society, will give local artisans the chance to display and sell what they have created, and will add to the overall Christmas feeling. The Festival of Trees will be offering $1 o ff the price of admission to the event for a donation to the Camrose Food Bank. Proceeds from the sale of silent and live auction items at Unwrap the Magic will be donated to the Merry Christmas Cheer Fund and the Battle River Community Foundation's Festival of Trees fund. The CRE will be seeking the support of volunteers as the Festival of Tree dates draw closer. "There'll be plenty of opportunities for those who want to help, from assisting with decorations and behind the scenes preparations to working at the Festival itself," said Lee. The Festival of Trees has become one of Camrose's premiere entertainment events since the first one was put on by the Citizen Advocacy Society in 1995. More information on the Festival may be obtained by visiting the Camrose Regional Exhibition website.

Flu shot program begins Oct. 17

Alberta is la unching its annual influenza immunization program on Oct. 17. The influenza vaccine will be made available, free of charge, to all Albertans six months of age and older, through dedicated influenza immunization clinics, as well as some pharmacist and physician offices. “As the single most effective means of protecting oneself from influenza infection and illness, annual immunization is an important part of every Albertans’ fall routine, every year,” says Dr. Gerry Predy, Senior Medical Officer of Health, Alberta Health Services. “We call it an annual immunization for a rea son: to maintain your immunity, and be protected for the season ahead, you need to get immunized every year.” Dr. Predy also reminds Albertans that by making immunization an annual event, they’re not only protecting themselves, they’re protecting those around them. “Immunization limits the spread of illness,” says Dr. Predy. “The more people who protect themselves by getting their annual influenza immunization, the less transmission of illness we see in our communities.” Upcoming clinic schedules will be advertised each week in local newspapers, beginning the week of Oct. 10. Alberta Health Services is the provincial health authority responsible for planning and delivering health supports and services for more than 3.7 million adults and children living in Alberta. Its mission is to provide a patient-focused, quality health system that is accessible and sustainable for all Albertans.

AUDITIONS Children play on the new equipment at Chester Ronning School. By Dan Jensen

Students at Chester Ronning School had a n ew playground waiting for them when they returned to school Sept. 1. "The kids couldn't wait to get on it," said Friends of Chester Ronning Society president Marj Pudlowski. "The anticipation was incredible." The new playground features four slides, a climbing wall, spinning equipment, bars from which kids can swing, bridges and a tower with platforms. "The wood (in the old playground) was splitting, causing the kids to get slivers, and some of the slides

were cracking. It was not a good situation at all." The playground is being built as a three phase project that won't be totally completed until next spring. Phase two includes a sw ing set, while phase three will include more swings and climbing equipment. The Friends of Chester Ronning Society raised half of the total cost of the playground through a ma gic show, silent auction and the sale of cookie dough. "We had two cookie dough sales, raising $12,000 the first

time and $6,000 the other," said Pudlowski. The society also made an appeal to businesses and organizations, receiving generous support from McDonald's and the Kinsmen Club. "The support we received from the community was unbelievable," said Pudlowski. The provincial government provided a matching grant of $65,900 from the Community Facilities Enhancement Program (CFEP). An official opening for the playground will be held next spring once the final phase has been completed.

Camrose Kodiaks support girls' soccer team

Pictured with a $2,500 cheque for the Camrose Under 18 girls' soccer team are: (left to right, front) coach Paul Stone, Micaela Stone, Halee Peter, Val Shacker, Emily Zimmer, Lauren Feth, (back, left to right) Kodiak Adam deChamplain, coach Jenna Keay, Regan Fossen, Rachel Labrecque, Jesalyn Clarkson, Latisha Keech, Kayla Wenig, Jenya Rust and Kodiak Connor Mailey. Missing from the photo were Sam Burton (coach), Kayla Keech, Katie Richard, Ashley Sedgwick and Allyson Wrubleski.

The Camrose Kodiaks' players were in the community on Wednesday, September 28, as the organization made a c ontribution towards the Camrose Under 18 girls' soccer team. The Camrose Under 18

girls' soccer team had volunteered their time to work at the 2011 RBC Cup as program sellers, in an effort to fund-raise for the team. A t rip has been planned for the girls to travel to Scotland, Wales and England to

play in some international soccer matches. The revenues raised through the program sales at the RBC Cup, coupled with the contribution from the Camrose Kodiaks, netted the team $2,500 which

they can now put towards travel expenses for their trip! The Camrose Kodiaks are committed to fostering amateur athletics in Camrose and the surrounding area, and will look to continue their support of minor hockey

and various forms of minor sports, for many years to come. For more information on the Kodiaks, and their involvement in community endeavors, please click on www.camrosekodiaks. com/community

Canada World Youth arrive in Camrose

Mayor Marshall Chalmers welcomed Canada World Youth participants last week by proclaiming Oct. 15 to 22 as Canada World Youth Week. By Dan Jensen

Nine South African and eight Canadian youth arrived in Camrose Sept. 30 to begin the second stage of their Canada World Youth/Volunteer Centre education program. "They'll be spending ten weeks working with local organizations on projects designed to raise awareness of international and local issues and build global partnerships," said Canada World Youth project supervisor Amber Eastman. The youth spent approximately three months earlier this year in Athlone, South Africa, where they conducted presentations on AIDS and HIV, domestic violence and substance abuse. "They did a presentation on sexual health that they will probably do again here," said Eastman. The participants are living with host families. "It took a w hile to get the families but now that everything is in place everyone is very happy," said Eastman.

"It is great to see the families opening their homes." Integration into a family and volunteer work with local agencies and organizations are key goals of the Canada World Youth program. "Living with a l ocal family helps them adjust to and learn about the new culture," explained African project supervisor Owen Mdledle. "It helps them feel that they have a support network. Hosts benefit as well in that they get to learn about a different country. The hands-on training that the Canada World Youth participants receive as part of the program help them obtain the skills they will need in their future careers, whether it be in government, education, health, social services, sp orts and recreation, environment and the arts. "We hope to educate ourselves while we are here and hope that, through our public engagement, we will be able to leave a legacy behind," said Mdledle.

"We want to stir up in the participants their spirit of volunteerism." This year is t he seventh year that Canada has hosted a CWY Youth Leaders in Action Program. Other exchanges have included participants from Bolivia, South Africa and Uruguay. "Through this program youth from across Canada and the world have contributed thousands of hours of volunteer work to the city of Camrose and have added to the cross-cultural understanding of the community," said Eastman. Canada World Youth offers international educational programs to young people aged 17 to 25. Since 1971, close to 35,000 young people from Canada and around the world have participated in the 67 countries in which CWY has run programs. Canada World Youth is funded by the Canadian International Development Agency. This year, CWY celebrates its fortieth anniversary.

Over the past eight years, Value Drug Mart has been providing school supplies for children who are unable to begin the school year with the basic necessities. The Kitz 4 Kidz program was introduced to raise more school supplies and awareness for less fortunate children while ensuring donations stay in the community in which they were collected. Beginning Aug. 1, Value Drug Mart customers had the option of donating their choice of individual school supplies, cash donations or two "kitz" which were made up of an assortment of pre-selected school supplies. All told, Value Drug Mart stores collected and distributed cash donations individual school supplies, and over 3,000 "kitz" during the four-week campaign that concluded on Aug. 27.

Runners ready to shine By Murray Green

The University of Alberta, Augustana Campus will be hosting an Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) Grand Prix and Run Alberta Cross-country Running Race on Saturday, October 15, at the Stoney Creek Centre. The women's open is a f ive kilometre (km) event that begins at noon. The men's eight km race starts at 1 p.m. "It will be a well-attended race, as it is the last Grand Prix race before the ACAC championships and everyone is trying to get tuned-up for that," said Augustana coach Gerhard Lotz. The top ACAC runners will all be there. "Our teams are looking quite good. Although we lost some of our top runners from last year, both the men and women will be in contention for the team medals. The men are in a really tight battle with Lethbridge and MacEwan, and we've usually been just behind them at previous Grand Prixs. We'll run hard to try to change that order." The women's team has placed third or fourth, with Grant MacEwan, RDC and SAIT all having good teams. "Individually, Andy Pohl will be a strong contender for top ACAC runner. Kalli Green has really improved her running to be in with the top five in the conference," explained Gerhard. "Our race is also part of the Athletics Alberta Run Alberta Cross Country series, so some of the top open runners in the province will be here also." Camrose runners Robert Renman and Brendan Lunty will both be running with the top open runners. Registration will take place in the lower level of the Stoney Creek Centre, 5320-40 Avenue (on the other side from the main floor entrance) beginning at 10 am. There will be light refreshments and an award presentation will follow the race. For more information contact Gerhard Lotz at e-mail glotz@ augustana.ca or phone 780-679-1521.

Kiwanis starting a new chapter in Camrose By Murray Green

Kiwanis members Dirk Bannister and Roy Bird want to form a n ew service club in Camrose. "We think Camrose is a great area to offer the amenities of a K iwanis Club," said Roy. "It is a club that helps the community and Camrose has a good community spirit. We want to add to that." Dirk is the secretary-treasurer of Kiwanis International's western Canada district. Roy is t he district's new club building chair. "Our service club is focused on children, but our 600,000 members around the world are involved in service projects from seniors' facilities to children's playgrounds and our projects encompass every age group," explained Dirk. The Kiwanis theme is Serving the Children of the World. The service club was "We have written about 35 letters and are in the process of phoning community-minded people to add them to our club."

City council concerned about the amount of bulk water consumption By Dan Jensen

The amount of water leaving the Camrose bulk water stations is becoming a matter of concern for City council. Council heard from assistant municipal engineer Jeremy Enarson Oct. 3 that 2.01 per cent of the total volume of water that left the City's water treatment facility in 2010 was sold from the City's bulk water facilities. Enarson also noted that the two largest registered bulk water users accounted for almost 50 per cent (20 megalitres) of the water purchased from the bulk water stations in 2010. Councillor Greg Wood asked if City administration could provide a breakdown on how the water that is coming from bulk water facilities is being used. He said the usage by the largest bulk users is sig nificant compared to the usage by the average household. Mayor Marshall Chalmers questioned whether the City would be able to put a cap on the amount of water leaving the bulk water stations at times of low supply. He said it doesn't make sense for users to pick up the water so they can put it down drilling holes or water their lawns and livestock. Enarson said the current consumption rates are $4.73 per cubic metre for bulk water sales versus $1.57 per cubic metre for City residents. He added that end users obtaining water through the bulk

water station also incur costs for hauling the water, in addition to any overhead/profit that they may be charged by the water hauler. "City administration believes," he said, that "the current practice of imposing a higher consumption charge on bulk water sales helps the City conserve water by discouraging the trucking of potable water to users outside the City." Enarson disagreed with councillor Max Lindstrand's statement that the residents of the Braim area are paying less for their water than residents from Camrose. He said cost of the water is based on getting it out of the lake and distributing it. The City of Camrose does not know how much the County bulk water station is b eing used compared to the one in Camrose. "We thought our usage would decline because of the facility outside the city but to date we have not seen that," said Enarson. The City of Camrose currently operates two separate bulk water stations: the main facility is located adjacent to the City's Public Works facility on 51 Avenue. The second facility is se t up during the summer months at the City's water treatment plant. The installation of the secondary facility reduces overall waiting times for bulk water users during the busier summer months. Water sold at either station is recorded and stored on a City database for billing and tracking purposes.

O'Neil, Kodiaks back on track By Murray Green

Kieran O'Neil scored and also set up Connor Mailey in the third period to spearhead the Camrose Kodiaks to a 3-2 victory over the Okotoks Oilers on Oct. 4. The Oilers netted the only marker in the first and then added to their total five minutes into the second. From then on, the bears were in a growly mood and clawed their way back i nto the contest. "We were disappointed in the showcase weekend. We felt that we should have had four points. It was good to come back against Okotoks in their barn and that definitely gives us a b oost of confidence," said Kodiaks' forward Kieran O'Neil. "We expected a l ittle more animosity in the game, but both sides stuck to playing hockey." Defenceman Craig Bokenfohr changed the momentum by scoring with about three minutes left in the middle frame. "It was an even game and when Craig scored it picked us up. Our line of Conner Mailey, Landon Kadatz

and myself have been on a cold streak lately, so it was good to get going again. For me, it was good to get that monkey off my back and score my first goal. We were moving well and hitting well, so it was just a matter of time." Goalie Matt Gibney stopped 27 of 29 shots to hold the Kodiaks in the game until the offence came roaring back. "With this team, we don't have any egos that need checking in at the door. We are all dedicated to working hard to create our opportunities," O'Neil added. "Our team went dead a little after Okotoks scored, but when we scored, everyone was relieved that we finally got one to go i n. Then we had that certainty feeling that we were not going to lose the game." Camrose lost two close onegoal games in the Alberta Junior Hockey League Showcase event in Spruce Grove on Sept. 29 and Oct. 1. Camrose also lost a t ough 3-2 decision to the Spruce Grove

Saints. Rylan Wiest and Nelson Gadoury scored for the Kodiaks. The teams exchanged goals in the first and second periods. Spruce Grove dominated the third frame and netted the only tally on a p ower play. "Staying close with the good teams tells us that we can beat or stay with any team. It gives us confidence knowing we can beat them next time. Sometimes we don't get the right bounces. That's hockey. Next time we will just work a little harder. We know where we are with them and we will bring our 'A' game when we play them again. It is disappointing to lose, but we have that quiet confidence around the room that we can learn from our mistakes and that we can beat any team." Kodiaks' goalie Brayden Hopfe stopped 23 of 26 shots sent in his direction. Camrose had only 17 shots on goal, including just two in the third. The team had seven power play chances, but failed to seize the opportunities.

The Kodiaks came away with a 2 -1 loss to the Drayton Valley Thunder in the fist contest. Gadoury was the only Kodiaks' marksmen to find the back of the net. "One of my favourite sayings is that you make your own breaks. If things are not clicking, we don't get down. We just work harder. Eventually, it pays off. We have confidence in each other and that just makes it easier." After Drayton Valley went up in the first frame, Gadoury evened things in the second. However, the Thunder rumbled again just over a minute later to regain the lead the club would not relinquish. Camrose goalie Gibney stopped 20 of 22 shots. The Kodiaks fired 21 at the Drayton valley net. Both Calgary teams will provide the next home opposition for the Kodiaks. The Mustangs are here on Oct. 13 and the Canucks arrive on Oct. 15. Both games begin at 7:30 p.m.

Augustana student trains year round for cross-country running events Submitted

It’s late August and Andrew Pohl is o ut for a 6. 8 kilometre run followed by a 12 k ride on a mountain bike. He winds up his one hour 39 minute 29 second afternoon with a 9.5 k cross country ski. Cross country skiing in summer? For Pohl, a s tudent/athlete at University of Alberta, Augustana, it is an easy task as he has the unique opportunity to be snow bound almost year round by switching hemispheres with the seasons. Canada during the school year and back home to New Zealand for the winter months, which are our summer months. His major sport interest is cross country skiing where he competes internationally. During the fall months though, he switches from skis to runners while competing in cross country running in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference. Such is h is prowess that he placed second in individual men’s over competition last year behind the running machine known as Willy Kimosop from the Lethbridge College Kodiaks. This year, with the Kenyan kicker out of the picture having graduated, Pohl has a possible shot at the overall ACAC men’s title, having placed first and second to date in two running events with three more to go before the ACAC Championships to be held October 29, 2011, in Calgary (SAIT Trojans host). Why would someone from New Zealand though choose Camrose to relocate for post-secondary studies? “I chose to attend Augustana after spending about four years skiing in Canmore,” said

Pohl, 22, who is enrolled in Bachelor of Science in Physical Education minoring in Mathematics. “It seemed like the ski program at Augustana was going to fit my needs well, and having ski trails only two minutes from the campus was a huge factor in my decision.” Pohl’s decision to join the Augustana program was welcomed by cross country head coach Gerhard Lotz: “It was a bit of a surprise – a n ice surprise – that he came to us last year. He came in at a really high level and you could tell that he had a really strong base and that he had put in a lot of hours and a lot of kilometres. He was a c ross country runner training competitively when he was younger and New Zealand has a s trong running tradition.” Pohl adds that cross country running provides excellent cross training: “Cross Country running is obviously a fantastic aerobic workout. I find that racing in the ACAC grand prix adds some great intensity workouts into my fall training.” Pohl has been a m ember of New Zealand’s national cross country ski team for the past five years and has attended two World Junior championships placing as high as 50th. “I have also got the chance to start in the pre-Olympic World Cup hosted in Canmore,” recalls Pohl. “Also last year I w on the Canadian Birkebeiner, placed 2nd overall in the Alberta Cup and was 16th in the 15 k Classic at the Canadian National Championships. "This year I have been selected by New Zealand to race in the World under 23 Championships held in mid-February in Erzurum, Turkey.” Of his future goals in the

winter sport Pohl stated: “Presently it looks as if I will attain the New Zealand Olympic qualifying standard this season, however it will be up to the New Zealand selectors to select the team for the Olympic Games. Obviously the Olympics are one of my goals, however I a m also hoping for a Top 30 finish at the World U23 championships and wish to get some more World Cup starts.” Of the difference between Canadian and New Zealand winters, Pohl concluded: “New Zealand winters are

quite different from Canadian ones. Down in the towns where people live it doesn’t really get that cold, there is no snow and temps are usually somewhere around 10-12 degrees. "However if you take a 40-minute drive up a m ountain to the Snowfarm where I w ork and live during the New Zealand w inter, you can find subzero temps and naturally plenty of snow. It certainly took me a bit of time to adjust to the extreme cold that we sometimes get here in Camrose.”

Eugene Yarema February 2, 1931 – October 13, 2009 Little did we know that morning God was going to call your name. In life, we loved you dearly, In death, we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, But you did not go alone. For part of us went with you, The day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, Your love is still our guide. And though we cannot see you, You are always by our side. Our family chain is broken And nothing seems the same. But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again.

Macala Jane Kneeland 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.” – Author Unknown

Make plans now for safe winter driving Thanks to global climate change, many of the weather patterns we've grown accustomed to in the past are no longer the norm today. It seems much of the country experiences shorter than normal days of moderate spring and fall weather, with seasons simply switching from scorching sun one moment to chilly temperatures and snow the next. That means it's never too early to take a refresher course in preparing for safe winter driving. Winter weather takes all of the usual road hazards and steps them up a n otch. Slippery roadways, congestion, road rage, pedestrian traffic -- all of these situations seem magnified when the weather is poor and daylight is waning. Although winter driving may be frustrating, there are ways to prepare for the season and prevent accidents and injuries. Prepare It's important to check that a vehicle is in top shape before the cold weather sets in. Pay special attention to the tires. If tires are bald or their wear is signficant, that could prove

hazardous on weather-slicked roads. Have tires replaced before the first snowfall. The same can be said when switching from regular performance tires to all-weather or snow tires. Be sure to change all of the tires on the car, even if it is j ust a f ront-wheel drive vehicle. Now is the time to also get a tune-up on the vehicle. Cold weather can make it hard for a car to perform at its best, and any problems should be eliminated before they spiral out of control. Be sure to top off any fluids in the car, especially windshield washer fluid you might need to improve visibility during a storm. Check the function of wiper blades and change them if they aren't up to snuff. Consult with a mechanic to find out if it is adviseable to switch motor oil viscosity during the winter to improve flow through the engine and help with cold start turnover. It also helps to stock up on supplies should you get stranded or stuck: - snow shovel - scraper/brush

- tire chains - flashlight (with extra batteries) - abrasive material, like cat litter, sand, or salt - jumper cables - flares or reflective triangles - brightly colored cloth to signal for help - empty water-tight container with candles, matches or lighter, bottled water, and a snack - sleeping bags or blankets, ski caps, and mittens - first-aid supplies Skidding How best to maneuver a car when it starts to skid depends on how the vehicle handles. If the rear wheels skid, turn the steering wheel, and subsequently the front wheels, in the same direction of the skid. If the front wheels skid, take your foot off the gas and shift to neutral. Don't try to steer immediately; the skid may slow, and traction could return. Then you can steer in the direction you want to go and put the car back into drive.

Keep in mind that even with expert maneuvering it can be tricky to recover from a skid on ice. Snow tires are not infallible and may be ineffective on icy roadways. Leaving Space One of the best things a person can do when driving in winter weather is to slow down and add much more room for reacting to roadway conditions. Driving slowly and braking slowly may help to prevent skids. Also, should a skid occur, having more room between you and another vehicle helps you to maneuver elsewhere or come to a s top without causing an accident. When visibility is poor, leaving extra room means you can react if something suddenly veers into the path of the car or you missed seeing it through the snow and sleet. Stranded or Stuck Should the car break down or it becomes stuck in the snow, there are some things you can do. Be sure to steer or push the car to a s afe location, if possible. Put up warning flares or

triangles so that you are visible and leave the four-way flashers on if the battery is operable. You can try "rocking" the car, by putting it in drive and hitting the gas, then in reverse and pressing on the accelerator to create a valley in the snow that might free the car. Use your abrasive material to provide traction. You can also attempt to shovel out the tires. If the car is inoperable, stay in the vehicle out of harm's way and call for help on a m obile phone. Leave a window cracked open if you will be running the engine for periodic heat. The National Safety Council says that you can run the engine for heat about once every hour, or every half hour in severe cold. Be sure to clean snow from around the end of the tail pipe to prevent carbon monoxide buildup. For extra heat, don blankets or a s leeping bag to prevent hypothermia. Driving in winter conditions can be exhausting and hazardous. Being prepared for common scenarios decreases risk of accidents.

Adjust your mirrors to reduce vehicle blind spots (MS) -- Many drivers have experienced the scenario on the road where they’ve attempted to change lanes believing the coast is clear, only to catch sight of a vehicle in the lane adjacent to them at the last minute. The car seemingly comes out of nowhere, but it probably was just in the driver’s blind spot. Accidents due to blind spots can be reduced and avoided if

drivers take the time to properly adjust their mirrors prior to setting off. Here’s how to adjust your mirrors for optimal view to avoid blind spots. • Adjust the rearview mirror so y ou can see the centre of the rear window. • Lean your head over until it almost touches the driver’s window, and then position the side mirror on the vehicle’s left side so

you can just see the rear quarter panel (the rear of the car) in the mirror. Note this will have it positioned farther out than you probably had it before. You shouldn’t be able to see the side of your car. • Lean your head to just between the two front seats, at your normal height, and position the right side mirror so you can just see the rear quarter panel of the passenger side in the mirror.

• Be observant while driving after adjusting the mirrors in this fashion. Watch how a car passing you begins in the center of your rearview mirror. As it approaches you, it moves to the side of your rearview mirror, and at the same time appears in your side mirror. This indicates there is no rear blind spot, because there is the correct overlap between the mirrors. Also

now your side mirrors do a much better job of covering the blind spot on the side of your vehicle. Even after adjusting the mirrors to reduce blind spots, it is still recommended to give a glance over your shoulders to clear the lane as a p recaution. A motorcycle or bicyclist may still be small enough to fit in a tiny blind spot, and it’s worth the extra check.

Chev Sonic Serious competitor with fun spirit

Graeme Davidson McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet By Dan Jensen

The all-new Chevrolet Sonic at McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC blends small car practicality with a passion for driving. "Its combination of great design, fun driving experience and the latest connectivity features create a se rious competitor with a f un spirit," said McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC dealer principal Will McClellan. The Sonic is offered in two body styles: a stylish four-door sedan and a sporty five-door, each of which delivers class-leading rear-seat roominess and cargo space. "From every angle, Sonic sedan and five-door models convey strength, stability and refinement," said McClellan. At firstglance, the five-door model looks like a three-door hatch because the rear door handles are directly located in the "C" pillar area. The rear of the five-door continues with unconventional details, including exposed, motorcycle-inspired rear headlamps. Details that reinforce Sonic's quality and attention to detail include chrome grille surrounds and matte black honeycomb grille inserts on all models. A wide, planted stance with wheels at the corners proportions conveys performance, while progressive raked body lines suggest movement, even when the car is stationary. A range of large wheel sizes, including 17-inch alloy wheels, reinforces the sporty demeanor. Inspired interior Sonic's cabin complements the motorcycleinspired exterior with a detailed instrument cluster featuring a la rge, round analog tachometer set within an asymmetrical LCD readout, with large digital speedometer display. The mid-instrument panel surface is a vailable in two colours (dark titanium and brick) and flows

seamlessly into the upper doors with premium lowglass finishes. The automatic shift knob has a " cobra head" design, while the manual shifter has a ch romefinished knob. Tubular outboard climate controls protrude from the instrument panel surface. The interior includes storage compartment in the centre stacks and doors. The rear seats fold flat for carrying larger items. Front bucket seats are standard and heated front seats are available. Powertrains Chevrolet Sonic models are powered by efficient, power-dense small-displacement engines, including the Ecotec 1.4 litre turbo and the Ecotec 1.8 lite – t he same engines used in the new Chevrolet Cruze. Three transmissions are available: a five-speed manual and six-speed automatic with the 1.8 litre, and a six-speed manual with the 1.4 litre turbo. The Ecotec 1.4 litre turbo's power ratings are estimated at 138 horsepower (103 kW) and 148 lb.-ft. of torque (200 Nm) between 1,850 and 4,900 rpm. The wide rpm range for the maximum torque – a specific trait of turbocharged engines – helps the engine deliver a better driving experience and performance. Premium design elements give the engine world-class smoothness and durability. The turbocharger is integrated within the exhaust manifold for reduced weight and greater packaging flexibility in small vehicles. A reinforced crankshaft and stronger connecting rods deliver additional strength to support the engine's pressurized power and torque over a wide rpm band. The naturally aspirated Ecotec 1.8 litre engine has many of the same features of the Ecotec 1.4 litre turbo. It is a compact and durable four-cylinder

engine designed for low maintenance, low emissions, and fuel efficiency. Its two-stage variable intake manifold allows approximately 90 per cent of peak torque to be available from 2,400 to 6,500 rpm. It is estimated at 135 horsepower (101 kW), along with 123 lb.-ft. of torque (167 Nm) at 3,800 rpm. Athletic ride The Sonic brings agility and a fun-to-drive feel that is ra re in the segment. Engineers who also work on the Corvette tuned the Son's confident ride and handling, giving it a m ore direct and athletic feel, while balancing the vehicle for the broad range of driving conditions in North America. All models feature a M acPherson strut front suspension with coil springs and a stabilizer bar, and a se mi-independent, torsion beam axle-mount compound link-type rear suspension – f eaturing a robust, tubular V-shape beam – w ith gas-charged shocks. The front and rear tracks are identical at 59.4 inches (1,509 mm), for well-planted stability and excellent balance. Electronic power steering is standard and features a wear compensator that continually adjusts the system interaction with the steering gear to ensure precise steering action over the life of the system. Sonic's body structure is designed to be one of the stiffest in the segment. Its rigidity enabled engineers to tune the ride and handling more precisely. Sonic's unique "flat top frame" cradle, for example, assures optimal stiffness in the front chassis portion of the vehicle. The rear axle is essentially a s traight axle without contour for packaging retstraints and reduced noise, vibration and harshness. A comprehensive safety package adds peace of mind with standard Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS), the StabiliTrak electronic stability control system, and up to 10 available airbags.

A sluggish car could mean any number of things, each of which could be expensive. But drivers often overlook an inexpensive part of the car's mechanics that can be contributing to slower acceleration and overconsumption of fuel -- the air filter. A vehicle has air filters and fuel filters that help to remove impurities and promote better engine performance. Over time, these filters can become clogged with grime and debris. A cl ogged filter cannot thoroughly do its job and impurities could be making their way into the engine and other systems of the car, compromising performance. Experts say that thoroughly maintaining air filters is one of the single-most inexpensive and effective ways to improve overall vehicle performance. Changing a c ar's filters on a reg ular basis can have a significant impact on engine life. Understanding how an air filter works helps a p erson realize why replacing them when clogged is essential. A vehicle's engine is a la rge, gas-fired air pump. Air comes through the air intake and travels through the air filter. Gas is added to the air and compressed in the cylinders. When the air-gas mixture is dense enough, the spark plugs fire to ignite the mixture and power the car's pistons. When all the pistons fire as they should, the driveshaft turns and the car moves. Because this process requires a specific air and gas ratio, the air filter is important. Dirty filters can "choke" the engine, preventing it from turning over. It can also decrease the efficiency of the vehicle, thereby decreasing fuel efficiency. Many oil change shops will offer to change an air filter at an additional charge. Some places will mark up the air filter replacement, and it could cost drivers a lot of money. Actually, replacing an air filter is a re latively easy procedure -- one most do-it-yourselfers can handle. The air filter is ge nerally housed in a la rge, plastic black box under the hood. The box cover is often held in place with large metal clips or screws. Therefore, bring screwdrivers along for replacement. Once the box is located, open it up to reveal the filter. Inside the filter is often white, bright yellow, orange, or red. Remove the grimy filter and set aside. (Older cars may have a doughnut-shaped air filter housed in a round box). Place the filter in the chamber and reseal the clips or screws on the cover. Give the car a test spin to ensure the filter is working as it should. A driver may notice improved pick-up on the vehicle.

Maximizing your vehicle's resale value DAB_11_1165_OB_CARJOU.indd 1

Depreciation is a major factor in buying and selling a vehicle. The average auto can lose 30 percent of its value after the first year. After three years -- the duration of most leases -- the car's value may have decreased by as much as 50 percent. Those looking to sell or trade-in cars will need to emphasize maintenance to get the most for their vehicle. There are ways to reduce a vehicle's depreciation and improve its resale value, whether selling to a private buyer or trading in the auto to a dealership.

10/5/11 7:31 PM

1. Buy the "right" car in the first place. Some models and brands simply hold their value better than others. Dealerships will promote this fact when attempting to sell a car. Choosing these types of vehicles can mean a better resale value later on. 2. Keep geography in mind. A convertible won't be as popular in Alaska as it will be in southern Florida. Don't buy a vehicle that goes against the norm in a particular geographic area. Otherwise, sellers will be left with a car with little resale value.

3. Stick to standard colors. Fad colors, such as lime green or bright orange, may turn heads, but they'll be harder to find buyers for later on. This could reduce the asking price for the vehicle when it comes time to sell. 4. Choose the right upgrades. A fa ncy stereo system or top-of-the-line navigation system won't necessarily add value to the vehicle. However, leather seats, a s unroof and an automatic transmission are popular among buyers. 5. Maintain the vehicle. Keep records of maintenance

that show the car was well cared for. Follow manufacturers' maintenence schedules for oil changes and tire rotation, among other things. 6. Trade in like for like. A seller may get a better trade-in rate on a used car if he or she is buying the same make in the new vehicle. Keep in mind that if a buyer is thinking about keeping a car until it's racked up tons of miles and is generally older than dust, depreciation values really won't matter much. In those instances, he or she should simply purchase the car liked the best.

Maintaining a vehicle is a great way to stay safe on the road while extending the car's life. Routine maintenance can keep a c ar running like new for years as long as vehicle owners stay on top of things and stick to a maintenance schedule. Most drivers are aware of when to get their oil changed and other fluids checked, but not all drivers know how to maintain their vehicle's tires. Proper tire maintenance makes a car safer for drivers and their passengers and can even pad a driver's pocket with a l ittle extra money. * Routinely check tire pressure. Tire-related crashes are most often caused by underinflated tires. Underinflation isn't always caused by a leak. In fact, gradual loss of pressure is natural, particularly when the seasons change and temperatures dip. An underinflated tire makes handling difficult and can even cause structural damage to a vehicle. Drivers should check their vehicle's tire pressure at least once a m onth. Those who have long commutes should check their tire pressure more frequently, and it's always a good idea to check tire pressure before and after a long road trip. Recommended tire pressures are listed in the owner's manual. * Look for abnormal wear and tear. Tires will wear down over time, gradually losing tread. However, drivers should inspect tires for excessive wear and tear, which could be indicative of other issues, including underinflation and alignment problems with steering and suspension. Additional issues to look for include bulges or cracks on the sidewalls or tread and any signs of a punctured tire. * Rotate tires. Most drivers have heard of tire rotation but might not know how often tires should be rotated or even why rotation is necessary. The owner's manual will solve the first problem, identifying how often tires should be rotated (most suggest every 6,000 miles). As for why it's good to rotate tires, doing so helps achieve even tread and extend the life of the tires. Tires are expensive, and rotation can help drivers get more bang for their buck. Drivers of front-wheel drive vehicles will notice their front tires wear down faster than their rear tires. That's because the front tires are doing most of the work, bearing the brunt of the force of braking, steering and driving. Rotating tires effectively levels the playing field. * Stay balanced. Sometimes tires become unbalanced. When taking a car in for routine maintenance, ask the mechanic to see if there are any issues regarding balance. Out of balance tires can cause significant issues that stretch beyond just uneven tread wear. An out of balance tire can wear down the vehicle's suspension. When driving at highway speeds, drivers might notice a considerable thumping. This is often indicative of an out of balance tire. Continued on page 38

* Stay cool. Sudden tire failure can often be traced back to overheated tires. A tire can overheat for a n umber of reasons, including aggressive driving. Frequently driving on coarse surfaces or at high speeds can also increases tire temperatures, as does ambient temperature. Driving at high speeds on a very hot day increases the risk of sudden tire failure, as does driving at high speeds on coarse surfaces. To reduce tire temperature, avoid doing these things simultaneously. If it's an especially hot day, for example, don't drive aggressively and maintain lower speeds. * Don't mix and match. A vehicle's balance can be affected significantly if owners mix and match their tires. Having different tires on the left and right sides is l ikely to upset a car's balance. When installing tires, do so in front or rear pairs or even complete sets. Pairs should also be the same size, brand and type, and should have the same tread wear as well. Should one tire go bad, it's almost always worth it to buy two tires. When buying two, always put the two new tires on the rear wheels, regardless of which type of transmission (rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, etc.) the vehicle has. The rear wheels need maximum traction so the vehicle can remain stable. * Don't overload a t ire. Check tires for their maximum load range, which will be listed on the tire sidewall. This maximum load should never be exceeded. Doing so will increase tire wear and shorten the tire's life. Excessive load also increases the risk of sudden tire failure. It's important to note the maximum passenger and cargo load intended by the vehicle manufacturer is often significantly less than what the vehicle can actually hold. But drivers must adhere to this figure to ensure their vehicles are safe and reduce the risk of sudden tire failure.

Help your car withstand harsh winter weather conditions (MS) -- Automobiles can be very resilient. Drivers typically don't treat their cars with kid gloves, but most cars keep chugging along in spite of it. Of course, drivers who treat their cars well can expect to get as much in return from their vehicles. That's especially true when winter weather arrives, which is the harshest season vehicles must endure every year. Harsh weather coupled with less-thanideal roadways typically take their toll on a vehicle as the season progresses, and it's up to drivers to help their cars withstand the elements of winter and make it to spring in drivable condition. Short of moving to a locale that's

warm and sunny 12 months a year, there's little drivers can do to avoid winter weather; however, there are several ways drivers can prepare their vehicles for the months ahead. * Address your antifreeze. Much like a winter coat protects people from winter weather, antifreeze protects vehicles when the weather outside is frightful. Not every antifreeze is created equal, and inadequate antifreeze can cause water pump failure and even a cracked engine block. Drivers often fail to monitor their antifreeze levels throughout the winter, which can hurt their cars and might even be harmful to the envi-

ronment. Traditional ethylene glycol, or EG, antifreezes have a sweet smell and taste that attracts animals and, if ingested, can harm local wildlife or even household pets. Propylene glycol antifreeze does not boast a sweet smell or taste, and though safe if ingested, reduces the likelihood that animals will be drawn to it. * Check the vehicle's charging system. Car batteries are forced to work harder in cold weather, making it easier for a battery to die when the mercury drops. To avoid being stranded in the cold, ask your mechanic to check the vehicle's charging system before the onset of winter

to ensure the battery is ready for the cold months ahead. * Don't tread lightly. Tire treads are especially important during the colder months, when icy or snow-packed roads make driving a d angerous undertaking. Tires with adequate traction are better equipped to handle roads that might be covered in ice, dirt or grime from sand and salt trucks. Check tire pressure regularly, especially when the temperatures are colder, and always inflate tires to the manufacturer-recommended PSI. PSI ratings can often be found on the driver's side door. * Monitor motor oil. An engine is only as good as the

motor oil that keeps it lubricated. Poor lubrication results in friction between engine components, ultimately leading to wear and potentially taking years off engine life. * Maintain visibility. Visibility is especially poor during the winter months when falling snow and dirt and grime are kicked up from the rear tires of other vehicles, making it difficult to see. To maintain adequate visibility throughout the winter, inspect wiper blades to make sure they are in peak condition. Be sure the blade fully clears the windshield of snow, rain and any other debris that might find its way into your driving line of vision.

The livestock industry may have a n ew tool to help with the accuracy, environmental and financial challenges of tracking cattle. Students in SAIT Polytechnic’s School of Manufacturing and Automation developed ultra high radio frequency identification (UHF RFID) tags as an applied research project. Field trials of these tags will soon get underway thanks to a $950,000 grant from the Alberta Livestock and Meat Agency (ALMA). UHF technology will potentially decrease the error read rate and improve read ac curacy at a speed that better meets the demands of commerce. Field tests will provide the livestock industry with results to compare against the current RFID technology. UHF systems could potentially be more cost-effective than the existing system primarily due to the significantly lower hardware costs. The project is a c ollaborative research project involving SAIT, cattle industry representatives, Livestock Identification Services (LIS), Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development (ARD), and ALMA. The UHF RFID project also benefitted from a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) grant. Visit www.nserc-crsng. gc.ca for more information. As the MLA for Battle River - Wainwright, I am always available to assist constituents. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the improved livestock identification and tracking devices, or any other matter, I can be reached in my constituency office at 780-842-6177, or in my Legislature office at 780-422-5369.

New monument honours contribution of Catholic Sisters Rayne Kuntz, Covenant Health

A new addition to the Alberta Legislature recognizes the courageous and intrepid religious women who helped to found the province, providing health care, education and social services to pioneer communities. A bronze monument unveiled last week honours all the congregations of Sisters who served across the province and celebrates their legacy of care and compassion carried on by others today. “This monument serves as a powerful tribute to the impact the Catholic Sisters have had on so many lives in our province, including my own. As a young child, I experienced the care and compassion of the Catholic Sisters firsthand, and this is a fitting way to honour their service, dedica-

tion, and care to countless Albertans,” said Premier Ed Stelmach. The Catholic Sisters’ Legacy Recognition Project is b eing led by Covenant Health in collaboration with the Catholic community. The monument was funded by donations from various organizations and individuals. “They taught school, fed the hungry, visited the distraught, housed orphans and tended the sick. These were no small tasks when you consider how little they had and how primitive conditions were,” says Gordon Self, executive sponsor of the Catholic Sisters’ Legacy Recognition Project. “It is f rom these humble beginnings that we have been able to build the Catholic schools, hospitals and social agencies we are so proud of today.” Over 70 orders of Sisters

have served in Alberta in the past 150 years. The first were three Sisters of Charity of Montreal (Grey Nuns) who arrived in Lac St. A nne, September 24, 1859. They were among the first Caucasian women who arrived in the region before Confederation. In September 1863, the Grey Nuns opened a n ew convent in St. Albert, which operated as the first hospital, orphanage and school, in what was then the Northwest Territories. “I am very grateful, it is wonderful recognition,” says Sister Annata Brockman about the tribute to all the Sisters who have made contributions in Alberta. “My hope is it will inspire others to carry on our work.” Local artist Herman Poulin from St. Paul, Alberta, was commissioned to create the Catholic

Sisters’ Legacy Recognition monument, Service Through Christ. For Poulin, the project brought him back to his childhood and stirred feelings of gratitude. “To work on the Sisters’ project is an honour. It is full circle for me,” says Herman. “In my primary school years, it was the Sisters who helped me discover my talent as a young artist. They called it a gift. Today, it is my turn to honour and respect my mentors.” The 10 foot bronze statue of a Sis ter holding a p iece of stained glass stands on a pedestal engraved with the names of the religious orders of Sisters who served in Alberta. The bronze figure moves through a foundation pillar and incorporates a crucifix around her neck, which Poulin defines as the source of her inner strength and purpose.

“Her movement exudes service” says Poulin. The figure in traditional dress strides forward, one heel up. “The flow of her long dress and her apron symbolize many tasks to do.” In conjunction with the project, many communities declared September 28 as Catholic Sisters’ Legacy Recognition Day. A video celebrating the Sisters’ legacy is also in production and will be premiered at Covenant Health’s Annual Community Meeting on October 5 and released on www. covenanthealth.ca later that month. Covenant Health is Canada's largest Catholic health care organization with over 14,000 physicians, employees and volunteers serving in 12 communities across Alberta, including Camrose.

Beware of phone calls about viruses on your computer By Dan Jensen

Camrosians who receive a p hone call from someone telling them they have problems with their computer are being advised to hang up. "We've seen people whose computers have been compromised because they have done what the callers have asked them to do," said Steven Copland, service tech with 2nd Floor Computers. "We usually end up having to do a format and reinstall of their computer." The problems begin when a person who claims he or she represents Microsoft tells the person who answers that a v irus has been detected on his or her computer. That, said Copland, is the number one tipping point that something is wrong.

"If anyone calls from Microsoft you need to pretty much hang up because Microsoft will never ever call you for anything like that." To prove the computer is i nfected, the caller directs the owner to the event viewer, which shows a bunch of errors. "The average user does not know what the error is," said Copland. "They just see an error so they think that it is a v irus on a computer." Once the computer owner is c onvinced that he or she has a problem the caller offers to go into their computer to remove the virus. The owner is t hen asked if he or she would like to purchase an anti-virus software program (in reality it is malware, malicious software that is designed to disrupt or deny

operation, gather information that leads to loss of privacy or exploitation, gain unauthorized access to system resources, and other abusive behavior) with a credit card. "Once the owners of the computer give them their credit card number they pretty much have everything," said Copland. As risky as it is to give out a credit card number over the phone to someone you don't know, it is ev en more dangerous to let an unknown person get into your computer. "Most of the time people tend to stay away from providing their credit card number over the phone but they think it is ok to give a person remote access to their computer," said Copland. "In fact, that I would say is one of the most dangerous parts. If you do that

and you do any online banking per se, they can actually have the potential to access your bank account. The same thing with Facebook or Hotmail or anything like that." Camrose Police Service Constable Sarah Cartier said the Camrose Police have had a couple of calls from residents who have expressed concerns about the fraudsters. "If I w ere to give any advice to people regarding this it would be to just ignore them, or tell them that you will report them if they continue to call." Copland said he has done some research and found that most of the calls are originating from somewhere in India.

Camrose Fire Department CIAL E P S encourages residents to SIONS A C C keep their homes safe O What’s the best way to protect your family from fire? Be ahead of the game, of course. With more than 360,000 home fires reported in the United States in 2009, according to the nonprofit National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), your best defense is a good offense. That’s why the City of Camrose’s Fire Department is teaming up with NFPA during the October 9-15 to let our community know: It’s Fire Prevention Week. Protect your Family from Fire! This year’s campaign focuses on preventing the leading causes of home fires – c ooking, heating and electrical equipment, as well as candles and smoking materials. Additionally, it urges people to protect their homes and families with life-saving technology and planning. “In 2009, 2,565 people died in home fires. Nearly all of these deaths could have been prevented by taking a few simple precautions like having working smoke alarms and a h ome fire escape plan, keeping things that can burn away from the stove and always turning off space heaters before going to bed,” says Jeff Knopf, Fire and Life Safety Educator of the Camrose Fire Department. “Fire is dangerous, but by anticipating the hazards, you are much less likely to be one of the nearly 13,000 people injured in home fires each year.” The City of Camrose Fire Department offers the following tips for protecting your home and family from fire: Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, grilling, or broiling food. If you leave the kitchen for even a short period of time, turn off the stove. Keep anything that can

burn at least three feet away from heating equipment, like the furnace, fireplace, wood stove, or portable space heater. Have a t hree-foot “kid-free zone” around open fires and space heaters. Replace or repair damaged or loose electrical cords. If you smoke, smoke outside. Use deep, wide ashtrays on a sturdy table. Blow out all candles when you leave the room or go to bed. Avoid the use of candles in the bedroom and other areas where people may fall asleep. “While preventing home fires in Camrose is always our number one priority, it is not always possible,” Knopf continued. “Camrose’s residents need to provide the best protection to keep their homes and families safe in the event of a fire. This can be achieved by developing an escape plan which you practice regularly and equipping homes with life-saving technologies like smoke alarms and home fire sprinklers.” The following tips will help keep your family safe if there is a fire in your home: Install smoke alarms outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the home (including the basement); Interconnect all smoke alarms in the home so when one sounds, they all sound; Test smoke alarms at least monthly and replace all smoke alarms when they are 10 years old or sooner if they do not respond when tested; Make sure everyone in your home knows how to respond if the smoke alarm sounds; Pull together everyone in your household and make a

plan. Walk through your home and inspect all possible ways out. Households with children should consider drawing a floor plan of your home, marking two ways out of each room, including windows and doors; If you are building or remodeling your home, consider installing home fire sprinklers. The City of Camrose Fire Department will be hosting activities during Fire Prevention Week to promote It’s Fire Prevention Week. Protect your Family from Fire! Through these educational, family-oriented activities, residents can learn more about the power of prevention and available technologies to protect their own families from fire. October 11 – R esidential Fire Alarm testing in the area of Enevold Drive from 68 Street to Elliott. October 12 – Camrose Great Escape, families’ are encouraged to participate in a c ity-wide fire drill at 6:00 pm. Look for fire trucks in your neighborhoods and receive prizes. October 15 – Canadian Tire Fire Safety Day 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. fire truck display and safety information and questions answered. October 16 – Fire Hall Pancake Breakfast 8:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.; cost: adults $7.00, children $4.00 (age seven and under free). To find out more about Fire Prevention Week programs and activities in Camrose, please contact the Camrose Fire Department at 780.672.2906. To learn more about “It’s Fire Prevention Week. Protect your Family from Fire!” visit NFPA’s Web site at www. firepreventionweek.org.

Domino’s Pizza delivers fire safety messages Submitted

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and Sparky the Fire Dog are joining Domino’s Pizza of Canada to deliver fire safety messages to Domino’s customers, and for some surprised families, their order will be free. As part of Fire Prevention Week, October 9 t o 15, customers who order from participating Domino’s Pizza stores throughout Canada in October may get a special Domino’s delivery aboard a fire engine. If all the smoke alarms in the home are working, the pizza order is free. If a smoke alarm is n ot working, the firefighters will replace the batteries or install a fully functioning fire safety device. “We are so exc ited to join the NFPA for this creative fire safety campaign,” said John Popkey, Domino’s Pizza of Canada. “We have seen the success that Domino’s Pizza in the U.S. has experienced over the past three years while working with the NFPA on this initiative, and we look forward to participating and spreading fire safety messages throughout Canada. We are sure it will make a lasting impression on many families when a team of firefighters makes the delivery!”

This year’s theme for Fire Prevention Week is Protect Your Family From Fire, focusing on the small actions that can make a b ig difference: c reating a h ome escape plan, installing and checking home smoke alarms and installing home fire sprinklers. “More than 2,500 people per year die in home fires and most of these fires can be prevented by following a f ew simple safety tips,” said Lorraine Carli, NFPA’s vice president of communications. “We appreciate Domino’s help in delivering information to millions of people in their homes to let them know what steps they can take to prevent fire and protect their family from it.” Fire Safety Tips from NFPA and Domino’s: Stay in the kitchen when you are frying, grilling, or broiling food. If you must leave, even for a short time, turn off the stove. Keep fixed and portable space heaters at least three feet from anything that can burn. Turn off heaters when you leave the room or go to sleep. Ask smokers to smoke outside. Have sturdy, deep ashtrays for smokers. Keep matches and lighters

up high, out of the reach of children, preferably in a cabinet with a child lock. Replace cords that are cracked, damaged, have broken plugs, or have loose connections. Keep candles at least one foot from anything that can burn. Blow out candles when you leave the room or go to sleep. Make a h ome fire escape plan and practice it at least twice a year. Install smoke alarms on every level of your home, inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas. Interconnect smoke alarms throughout the home. When one sounds, they all sound. Test smoke alarms at least once a m onth and replace conventional batteries once a year or when the alarm “chirps” to tell you the battery is l ow. Replace any smoke alarm that is m ore than 10 years old. If you are building or remodeling your home, install residential fire sprinklers. Sprinklers can contain and may even extinguish a fire in less time than it would take the fire department to arrive. Visit www.firepreventionweek.org for more safety information.

For Want Ad service, please phone 780-672-3142 before six on Friday Helpful Tips for Writing Classified Ads Which Get Results! Be Thorough Sure you want your ad to stand out from the rest, but don’t skimp on the sort of information that sells. The item’s condition, size, age, brand name, and color are some of the basics readers want to know. Without them, your ad may be overlooked.

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

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

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

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

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

Hunting with shotguns You’re asking yourself whether to buy a rifle or a shotgun as a f irst weapon? Without doubt, no matter what kind of hunting you do, the 12-gauge shotgun is a n excellent investment, perhaps even the best one. Thanks to its versatility, you can practise nearly all types of hunting in your region, whether its small game hunting such as partridge, hare, pheasant, geese and duck or big game hunting such as deer or moose. For small game, you’ll need ammunition filled with shot. For

big game, hunting must be done with ammunition called a slug. However, the versatility which 12-gauge shotguns offer doesn’t come without compromise. For small game, the 12-gauge can seem too powerful for hunting quail or hare for example, but it’s easy enough to adapt it by choosing the right type of ammunition and by adjusting the sight in function with the distance from the game. For large game, slugs are effective over a sh ort distance, but are a lot less so over a long distance.

Library News By Deb Cryderman, director, Camrose Public Library

October is Canadian Library Month, a m onth dedicated to raising awareness of the valuable role that libraries play in the lives of Canadians. As part of our celebration, the Camrose Public Library is participating in several activities. A Book in Every Child’s Hands is our library board’s goal during the month of October. Did you know that library cards are free for everyone under the age of 18? During October, every child who comes to the library to get a library card will also be eligible to enter his or her name into a draw for a Kobo Reader or one of two iPod shuffles. Children must be accompanied by a pa rent or guardian. Food for Fines is the library’s annual drive for the Camrose Food Bank. If you have outstanding overdue fines, you can pay your fines with a d onation of non-perishable food. For each item donated, the library will waive $1.00 of your fines, and of course will certainly consider a more expensive item as being worth more. Y ou will be eliminating your fines and doing something great for your community all at once. You can drop off your food and have your fines waived during any of our open hours during the month of October. The Camrose Public Library is joining public libraries across the province in “Snapshot Day 2011” during October to show how important public libraries and library systems are to the residents and communities of Alberta. On October 19th, Camrose Public Library will compile statistics, customer comments, photographs and other data chronicling a typical library day. The results at Camrose Public Library will be added to those of public libraries across Alberta to show how libraries provide invaluable services. Please drop by the library on October 19th and share your thoughts of what the library means to you, have a cup of coffee on us, pose for a picture and enter our draw for a great prize. The concept for Snapshot Day originated with the New Jersey State Library Association, and has spread throughout the U.S. and Canada. The purpose of the day is to create a ‘snapshot’ of what happens in a l ibrary in a si ngle day, to help libraries and library advocates demonstrate how the people that visit the library and the communities in which they live are impacted by the library. The library’s Book Sale has been scheduled for October 21, 22 and 24 and there will be something for everyone. Book prices will be: October 21 and 22: hardcover: $1.00; trade paperback, 50 cents; mass market paperback, 25 cents. On October 25 everything will be free. If you would like to volunteer to help set up on October 20th, work the book sale on the 21st to the 24th or tear down on the 26th, please call the library (780.672.4214) or drop in to sign for a shift. We are excited to be hiring a programmer to join our staff in late October. You can expect the programming at the library to increase beginning in November.

Football Buffaloes stop Spruce Grove atoms By Murray Green

The Camrose Buffaloes atom football team tamed the Spruce Grove Cougars with a 2 5-7 victory at Kin Park on October 1. After a s low start, as the teams tried to get a se nse of the direction of the game, the Buffaloes began to build momentum. "During the second half, the offense started moving the ball with some excellent quarterback sneaks," said coach Fitz Sherman. "One turned into a touchdown." A couple of long runs by Hailey McKechnie led to another touchdown. A broken passing play in a quarterback bootleg, gave the Buffaloes their third touchdown. For the second straight game on the last play, linebacker Teryll Sherman returned an interception for a touchdown. "This game was back a nd forth until about the midway of the third quarter, when our offense came to life and our defence started shutting the door," said coach Fitz. "At half time, I told the offensive line that they are more important than the quarterback, because if they don't protect, block and open holes, our offense goes nowhere. This seemed to fire them up." The defence had some players step up, who normally don't get a l ot of recognition. "Defensive back Kieran Sherman made a number of tackles, one of which was a t ouchdown-saving shoe string tackle. Corner back Gareth Kaack made his first solo tackle with an impressive open field stop. Our team came to play today in front of their home crowd, and it was a g reat way to bounce back after last week's loss." Bantams

The bantam edition of the Buffaloes also showed signs of breaking through. "The offense moved the ball and we had three long drives for touchdowns that were about three quarters of the field. We had a good mix of passing and running," said coach Carl Davidse. "The defense played well, with a few big plays that ultimately led to our touchdowns, and it was the difference." Camrose shut down the Cougars' run in first half, which forced them into only passing plays in the second half, hoping for big gains. "We had kick off returns for big yards on special teams."

Little herd wins big The Camrose atom Buffaloes used their speed in returning kicks against the Spruce Grove Cougars at Kin Park on October 1. Camrose won 25-7 and moved to 2-3 on t he season as they prepare for the playoffs.
