Council approves additions to performing arts centre By Dan Jensen
Camrose City council has approved the addition of a performers' entrance and LED fly tower lighting array to the performing arts centre project. The additions will increase the cost of the arts centre by $200,000 to $19,538,320. "As with any significant project under construction, building elements do emerge that were not anticipated in the original project scope or budget," said Camrose Community Services general manager in a report to council Oct. 7. The performers' entrance is a practical fix of a contemplated problem with performer access and flow entering and utilizing the performer spaces. "Essentially it is a back door (facing west) at the basement level of CPAC," said Nielsen. "This access point, which will be largely used by performers and staff of the facility, will allow direct access to change rooms and storage areas in the basement level of CPAC. Providing this space will enable performers and their instruments and program materials to have direct access to the basement level, avoiding the need to transport themselves and materials through one of the front doors." Project manager Michal Madsen said while the double doors of the new entrance will shrink the storage, the amount of storage in the building is quite adequate. "In essence we end up with a large vestibule with a direct entrance from the parking lot for the performers." Theatre manager Kerry Rajotte told council that hav-

ing a separate entrance to go through is something that is appreciated by those who are booked to perform. "I don't know if any of you have ever carried a tuba or a bass up a large set of stairs but it can be cumbersome," said Rajotte. "Also, there are some performers who just prefer the secluded entrance so that they are not in the public eye when they are coming into the facility." The LED fly tower lighting array consists of a ring of LED lighting following the outside circumference of the exterior top of the fly tower structure. "Both aesthetic and functional, it will provide definition to the height of the building in times of darkness
and, because the entire fly tower has a black exterior due to the installation of the photovoltaic panels, the lighting array will provide the needed definition identifying the structure height," said Nielsen. "Being LED lights, the array will be very inexpensive to operate." "The university architect suggested that we add the LED lighting to the top of the tower to add some definition to the building at night time, since we do have a lot of night time light," said Madsen. "It would be visible from quite a ways away from the structure itself." Councillor John Howard said the LED lighting will add to the definition and character of the building.
"I am certainly prepared to speak in favour of the addition." Rajotte said she is extremely excited about the prospect of LED lighting. "There is no question that once it is installed that will be a definitive brandmark for the theatre. You can already see it from points coming in and out of Camrose, and with that lighting at the top it is definitely going to be a marker." The Camrose performing arts centre fundraising committee feels confident it will be able to come up with the $200,000 needed to include the cost of the LED lighting and the performers' entrance in the overall project. "Both of these elements
are quite enticing in terms of generating interest from the community and elsewhere in terms of naming sponsorships," said Nielsen. "That would be our first source of funding. Failing that, as council is aware, a bylaw has been passed that allows us to access funds for any shortfall in the fundraising, and that would be our second source." Mayor Marshall Chalmers said he is in favour of committing the extra money now as opposed to later on. "There are times when it makes sense to spend a little extra up front when these things arise, and to me this is one of those times when it makes sense."
Camrose County extends water line to Armena By Murray Green
The Hamlet of Armena will be receiving potable water next year. Camrose County council agreed to extend a line from Hay Lakes to Armena to give the hamlet a suitable water source in the future. "In 2007, we received a good announcement through the integrated sustainability initiative plan for hamlet development at which time Camrose County was going to receive $33 million over a 10-year period," said administrator Steve Gerlitz. "As part of the MSI agreement we are required to do some long term projects. We have completed area structure plans, except for New Norway, which will be done in 2014." Water, sewer and drainage are at the top of the lists for most hamlets. "The costing and tendering for Armena water and waste-
water has been done," said Steve. "Keep in mind that we have not received all of our 2011 MSI funding or any of the 2012 money. I haven't sent in our 2013 request yet." Deon Wilner of ISL suggested to administration that Camrose County accept the bid from Nu Edge Construction for the installation of water into the Hamlet of Armena. The bid price of $519,250, as well as the engineering (design and on site) of $162,419, carrying costs (debenture) of $7,074 and residential tie-ins of $135,000 amount to a total cost of $823,744. Funding will be provided from the local improvement tax of $90,000 and MSI funding of $733,744. The bid was checked for accuracy and completeness. "We have reviewed the project experience sheets provided by the contractor and we are satisfied that
they are capable of completing the work of the contract," said Deon. "The bid is competitive for the work that needs to be completed." The County will partner with the Highway 21 Water Commission to supply treated water to Armena and various residential and farming locations along the regional water line. Councillor Doug Lyseng moved that the county accept the bid from Nu Edge to start the water project. "Armena residents and farmers in the area are lacking water. It is important to bring the water line to Armena and possibly to Ervick in the future," he added. "It excites me to bring water into the county, but can it be used for industrial use?" asked councillor Rob Bjorge. "It is included in our allocation, but we are in ongoing talks with the commission," said Steve.
Council voted 4-2 in favour of going ahead with the water project with councilor Vern Peterson absent. However, council denied a wastewater system due to the expensive price tag. Council voted down a bid from Nu Edge Construction for the installation of waste water collection and treatment facility in the Hamlet of Armena for the bid price of $4,087,015 as well as engineering (design and on site) of $365,309.29, carrying costs (debenture) of $7,074, lagoon site (land) of $110,000, and residential tie-ins of $135,000 for a total cost of $4,704,399. Funding was to come from a local improvement tax of $90,000, a MSI grant of $3,257,375, Federal Gas Tax Fund 2012 and 2013 grants of $844,534, and municipal infrastructure reserves of $512,490. Council voted 4-2 against starting the wastewater project because of the high cost. "This decision
brings a lump to my throat, but it is a high cost to pay for the benefit of a few residents. I think the money can be put to better use for more people in the entire county," said Reeve Don Gregorwich. "I started to think it was a lot of money. I look back at the wastewater system that was put in at Kingman and Round Hill at that time the dollars were large for the council. They didn't have MSI or gas tax money," said councillor Doug, who made the motion in favour of the project. "We have an opportunity to go ahead, especially with MSI funding and gas tax paying most of the load. Unfortunately, the price doesn't go down." Councillor Brian Austrom pointed out that improvement taxes paid for the Kingman and Round Hill projects. Continued on page 9

This message brought to you by these community-minded businesses:
By Dan Jensen You may not wear it as much anymore, but that doesn't mean your old winter coat can't serve a useful purpose. Centra Cam Vocational Training Association's Emergency Clothing and Furniture Depot is collecting clean winter wear in good condition that will be distributed during its annual Coats for Camrose event at Duggan Oct. 16 and 17. "We will be set up in the Duggan Mall from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday," explained Emergency Clothing and Furniture Depot coordinator Lori Gilbertson. "Winter wear will be available at no charge or by cash donation." Coats that are not given away at Duggan Mall will be sent to the Emergency Clothing and Furniture Depot. "You won't need a referral from a local agency to pick up a coat at the Mall, but you will need one once they come to the depot," said Gilbertson. The Coats for Camrose program handed out over 1,100 pieces of winter clothing in 2012, including coats, mitts, toques, sweaters, boots, and scarves to many individuals and families within Camrose and area. Centra Cam Vocational Training Association, through the Emergency Clothing and Furniture Depot, has successfully supported over 25,700 families who were faced with emergency situations. "We have provided furniture, clothing and essential items to members of the community who are faced with crisis situations and economic hardships," said Gilbertson. Emergency Clothing and Furniture Depot had 1,824 referrals in 2012-13 from 68 referring agencies. Referrals are issued to one person per immediate family. Often times, one referral will be used for a large family. Examples of referring agencies are the Camrose Women's Shelter, Alberta Employment and Immigration, AISH, Camrose churches and the Battle River School Division. Currently, Emergency Clothing and Furniture Depot has one coordinator and five staff, along with a caseload of 14 clients.

County extends water line to Armena Continued from page 4
"When I look at spending $227,000 per household just for sewer, I have to think twice. We didn't do it for Duhamel. To continue to put more money into this and dig into our reserves – I find it to be absolutely ridiculous. We have other projects, like New Norway, that are more important." Councillor Trevor Miller asked why the County would approve
Armena when they denied Duhamel's wastewater plans. "We voted down Duhamel and their cost per household was lower. This cost is a littler more than we should be spending." Councillor Doug also asked if a cheaper system could be used. "We should look at the mechanical system and see if it costs us less money."
Deon explained that his company did look at other options. County assistant administrator Paul King suggested that second and third readings on the Armena local improvement tax be made to start the water system project to go ahead. A local improvement plan has been prepared and the required notice of the project given to the
benefiting owners. There is no sufficient objection to the Armena water distribution. Armena residents were advised that they would be required to contribute $ 5,000 for the service over a 20 year period. The County will borrow $90,000 and the improvement tax will be used to replace the funds over a longer period.

CAFCL charity auction Saturday By Dan Jensen
See...Potential, Opportunity, Ability, Diversity, Me is the theme of the Camrose Association for Community Living Charity Auction at the Camrose Regional Exhibition Oct. 19. "We want to convey the fact that everyone has the potential and ability to be a contributing member of society," explained CAFCL executive director Esther McDonald. The charity auction serves as a way of bringing attention to a wide variety of programs and supports offered by Camrose Association for Community Living and other organizations in the area to persons who have disabilities, brain injuries, special health or development concerns. "The programs we offer, whether it is the Teaching Independence and Parent Support (TIPS) or the Kandu Summer Camp, an inclusive
summer camp for children seven to 17 with special health or developmental concerns, are designed to bring out the best in people," explained McDonald. The 2012 charity auction was able to raise $82,000 after expenses. "We have received outstanding support from the community," said McDonald. "I get told over and over that this is the premiere event in town. It warms my heart but also sets some pretty high standards." The charity auction will provide the opportunity to bid on a number of enticing items, including a VIA Rail trip from Edmonton to Vancouver, two front row tickets to a Brad Paisley concert compliments of CFCW, a flyin fishing trip to Milton Lake Lodge in Saskatchewan, an air conditioner compliments of EMCO, a Jordan Eberle autographed helmet, a kayak
from Grant Thornton and pearls from Richardson's Jewellers. The auction will also feature items that have been donated by CAFCL clients. "We're going to be showcasing them to show the audience and the community that people with disabilities have talents and skills, and that they give and donate as well to help others." A charity auction marketplace will include homemade items and popular popcorn prizes. Rev. Brian Hunter will serve as master of ceremonies. "The Rev. Hunter is a long-time supporter of CAFCL who has, over the years as minister and chaplain, provided many services to our clients, staff and organization," said McDonald. Information on charity auction giving opportunities may be obtained by calling CAFCL at 780-672-2057.
On Sept. 17 in the Camrose Booster, Greg Wood endorsed Norm Mayer as a mayoral candidate. Wood said, “I think we are very fortunate that Norm Mayer has stepped forward to let his name stand…” On Oct. 8 in Norm Mayer’s election ad, “A Significantly More Efficient Development Permit Process” was his second platform point. I found it quite a coincidence that Council candidates Greg Wood and Wayne Throndson received the shortest question of the evening at the All Candidates Forum: “How will you address the City’s longstanding problem of unreasonable delays for development permits and our noncompetitive cost for same?” With this question, both men were given opportunity to speak directly to Norm Mayer’s second platform point. As anyone can see on Cable 10, the other candidates received multi part questions. Throughout the evening, candidates and audience members could be seen shaking their heads at the impossibly long questions. If they had received written questions they could have replied more effectively. Maybe it is time that the democratic process has fewer coincidences in Camrose. We need more transparency and public conversations. Maybe it is time that questions at an All Candidates’ Forum give participants opportunities to share their strengths and insights, so the public can make more informed decisions on election day. Faye Oswald Camrose Publisher's note
We feel compelled to offer the following points regarding the organization of the public forum referenced above. 1. At 6:45 p.m. prior to the forum starting, the seating order of candidates was determined by random draw. Moderator John Howard had each candidate draw a number out of an envelope to determine the seating sequence. It was by pure coincidence that candidates
Wood and Throndson ended up sitting side-by-side. 2. In terms of questions asked, this too was luck of the draw. The forum committee drafted a set of twenty questions after openly discussing what they believed to be on the minds of the electorate. Also considered were the platforms of the various candidates. All questions received at the door were reviewed and found to be substantially consistent with the questions drafted by the committee. Certain questions were tweaked to reflect suggestions from those in attendance. 3. On forum night, the moderator had sole possession of all the questions on separate pieces of paper. The committee operated on a condition of confidentiality. Members went to great lengths not to reveal any question in advance in order to make the process fair and equitable to candidates for every elected position. There was absolutely no discussion in advance about posing specific questions to any particular candidate. 4. The moderator picked questions randomly only when he was in position in the auditorium to ask a question. He repeatedly shuffled the remaining questions and had no idea, until that moment, which question he was about to ask. With this outline of the facts regarding the process of preparing the questions, confidentiality, determination of seating sequence and the random selection of which question would be asked of which pair of candidates, we leave it to the reader to decide if there was any chance that the forum was engineered to favour any particular candidates(s). We agree with Ms. Oswald that the multi-level questions were extremely difficult to answer in their entirety, particularly for candidates without previous council experience. Some questions were so complex that even existing councillors would have difficulty with them. On the other hand, multi-part questions did grant every candidate an equal opportunity to answer any portion of the question to which they were most versed. Forums are an essential part of our democratic process. Organizing this one was a daunting task because of the sheer number of candidates. We think the forum committee did an excellent job of organizing and executing the program, which could have been an absolute zoo. Blain Fowler Publisher

Krista & Janelle grieve 4th Generation 4-H Members Manitoba
Enbridge is proud to celebrate 100 years of 4-H in Canada. For over a century 4-H has been helping to bring out the best in Canadian youth. Janelle and Krista come from a long line of 4-H members, including their great-grandmother who was part of the very first 4-H club in Canada. Four generations later Janelle learned the art of public speaking in 4-H, which has helped in her pursuit of a post-secondary education. As for her younger sister Krista, she’s following in her sister’s footsteps with a passion for communication and leadership activities. Through 4-H, Janelle and Krista are continuing a family legacy and finding their voice in the community. At Enbridge, we understand that when we invest in organizations like 4-H, we’re helping young Canadians realize their dreams and become the community leaders of tomorrow.

Shadow transits across Jupiter in month of October By Diane McLaren
On the evening of Oct. 11 a rare astronomical event happened: a triple-shadow transit of three of Jupiter’s moons. Unfortunately, stargazers in Alberta had to be content with pictures of what astronomers east of us saw because Jupiter was just starting to rise here in Alberta when the triple transit occurred. The next time the shadows of these three same moons (Callisto, Europa, and Io) cross Jupiter will be January 23, 2015. Mark that in your day timers. However, all is not lost. We have two opportunities during October to see double-shadow transits. On Oct. 17, in the southern sky, we can watch the shadows of Io and Ganymede cross Jupiter between 6 and 7:27 a.m. Then, on Oct. 26, the shadows of Io and Europa will cross Jupiter between 2:37 and 4:31 am. If you are up early for the October 26 double transit, you might as well take a peek at Uranus in the western skies as it will be nice and high in the sky until about 4 am. By 5 a.m., Mars will be up high enough above the eastern Horizon to view as well. Definitely worth losing some sleep over. Jupiter is the fourth brightest object in the sky (after the sun, the moon and Venus). Jupiter was the king of the gods in Roman mythology – a fitting name for the largest of the planets in our solar system. The ancient Greeks named the planet after Zeus, the king of the Greek pantheon. Jupiter helped revolutionize the way we saw the universe and ourselves in 1610, when Galileo discovered Jupiter's four large moons (Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto), now known as the Galilean moons. Ganymede is the largest moon in the solar system. This was the first time that celestial bodies were seen circling something other than our earth which supported a controversial point of view at that
time which suggested that the earth was not the center of the universe. Jupiter's appearance is a tapestry of beautiful colors and atmospheric features. Most visible are its stripes of cloud belts which are composed of ammonia. Water vapor exists deep below the clouds and can sometimes be seen through clear spots in the clouds. The planet's "stripes" are dark belts and light zones created by strong east-west winds in Jupiter's upper atmosphere. The planet's swirling cloud stripes are punctuated by massive storms such as the Great Red Spot, which has raged for hundreds of years. Jupiter, like the other gas planets in our solar system (Saturn, Uranus and Neptune), does not have a solid surface; its gaseous material simply gets denser with depth. What we see when look at these planets is the tops of clouds high in their atmospheres. Jupiter makes a nice viewing target for a small telescope because you can typically see the planet’s four largest moons (Ganymede, Callisto, Europa and Io) along with some cloud belts, and the great Red Spot storm, all from your backyard. Viewing the planets doesn’t require really dark skies. If I have sparked your interest I invite you to join the Camrose Astronomy Club or to come out to some of our public events to learn and observe with us. Our next public star party is on Oct. 10 from 9 to 11 p.m. at the Stoney Creek Centre (5320-40 Avenue) weather permitting. Bring your binoculars or telescope or look through ours.

Emergency sweater drive helps refugees By Dan Jensen Do you have some extra sweaters taking up space in your closet? See that they get put to use by donating them to someone in need of warmth this winter. The women of Messiah Lutheran Church are collecting gently used, clean, men's women's and children's sweaters that will be sent by Canadian Lutheran World Relief to (CLWR) centres housing thousands of Syrian refugees who are bracing for a cold, wet winter without clothing. The items may be dropped off at the Messiah Lutheran Church office between now and Oct. 21. "We have collection boxes at the office," said Messiah member Norma Blacklock. "Our goal is to get them to CLWR warehouse in Winnipeg by the end of the month. Home Hardware has generously offered free shipping service." CLWR's goal is to collect 10,000 new or gently used sweaters of all sizes. As the devastation of the Syrian civil war continues to unfold, refugees living at the Za'atari refugee camp
in Jordan are bracing themselves for another harsh winter. A housing shortage, lack of appropriate clothing, and a demanding climate can make life extremely difficult for families who have fled the violence. The sweaters will be distributed to Syrian refugees living in the Za’atari refugee camp in Jordan. About 125,000 people in the camp are bracing for another cold, wet winter. Many still live in tents and lack warm clothing after having fled their communities with little more than the clothes on their backs. “Every bit of warmth we can provide will make a difference,” said Robert Granke, executive director of Canadian Lutheran World Relief. “The sweaters will go to the people in the camp who are in the most need.” Through the past year, CLWR has lent is support with a material aid shipment and by gathering financial donations. For decades, the generosity of Canadian Lutherans has made a real difference in times of crisis.
Shuttle service to Edmonton launched By Murray Green Camrose now has a daily transit service to Edmonton. Jenny's Shuttle Service is now booking seats for one-way or return trips to Edmonton and the airport to fill a void in the transportation system. Former taxi driver Janet Tisdel started the company to provide communities such as Camrose, Hardisty, Stettler, Bashaw, Ponoka, Wetaskiwin and Leduc residents with transportation access to Edmonton for medical, or other appointments. "Right now I'm running from Camrose to Edmonton, but in the future I want to expand to include an east and west line to take everyone to Leduc and from there go to Edmonton," Janet explained. "I will drop them off at the Centre Park LRT and they can go to their appointments from there. Dropping them off in downtown Edmonton didn't make sense because they would have to take a taxi to where they are going. I changed my plan a bit because the LRT service will take clients to the place they need to go." Janet is planning three trips a day to Edmonton, so she can catch some passengers to bring them back to Camrose. She is using a ticket system, so drivers know if a person needs a return trip.
"I want to provide quality service for the benefit of the communities," said Janet. "I have daily schedules between communities and I will adhere to set times." Jenny's Shuttle Service picks up people at the Best Western Hotel Plus, Hotel Marada, University of Alberta, Augustana campus and R and R Motel every weekday morning. She also offers a door to door airport shuttle service. "I am only hiring professional, friendly drivers that are willing to serve all of our clients," said Janet. "Right now I have a van and two handi-van type buses and I have put a bid on a third bus. All of our vehicles are in top shape." Janet Tisdel is ready to drive passengers.
Iris Anne Drever Iris was the youngest of eight children born to Ernest and Vera Creasy. Iris was born in Hardisty on June 23, 1934 and passed away peacefully on October 5, 2013 at the age of 79 years at the Louise Jensen Long Term Care Facility. Growing up in the ’30s, she experienced hard times, but she had the luxury of a great family and had a happy childhood. Iris attended Hazelwood Country School and Hardisty High School. On August 9, 1952, Iris married Ken Drever and they soon started their own family. Having three daughters in under three years while also looking after boarders in a shared house kept Iris very busy. Iris was very well organized and could make bread while sewing, cooking, canning and caring for her children. Babies kept arriving, sadly losing twin boys but then having two more sons to complete the family. Iris was a lifelong member of the Eastern Star, Royal Purple and UCW in both Hardisty and later when the family moved to Camrose (1965). Church suppers, fairs, funerals, staff parties, family reunions and weddings were nothing for Iris to organize and pull off. Iris never ran short of delicious food no matter how large the crowd was. Christmas at Grandma’s house was extra special, and she took no shortcuts to be sure everyone had a great time and felt special. Loaves of fruit bread for the entire family and many friends at Christmas time will be sadly missed. Iris was able to perfectly balance the busy business life of her husband and their family needs. She was completely supportive of her husband and cared deeply for her children, sons, daughters-in-law, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Iris was a great seamstress and enjoyed making clothes, wedding gowns, knitting and especially porcelain dolls. Friends were very important to Iris and she was fortunate to have many very special and lifelong friends with whom she enjoyed spending time. Iris leaves behind her husband Ken; her children Lynn (Roy) Fixsen, Judy (Daryl) Larson, Vickie (Cliff) Cullum, Cliff (Beverly), Dale (Shelley); her 20 grandchildren: Fixsens – Micheal (Heather), Jeff (Jaima), Brett (Leslie), Clay (Julia), Cody (Jaclyn); Larsons – Neil (Everly), Becky (Jeff McClements), Megan (Ryan Paterson), Lana (Tanner DeLorey); Cullums – Jody (Ryan Bergseth), Penny (Adam Foster), Ashley (Clark Leslie); Drevers – Lyndell (Ryan Mowat), Ross, David (Lindsay), Lee; Drevers – Alicia (Blair Mackie), Taryn (Mike Ference), Christy and Jordie; her 37 great-grandchildren; and her siblings: Alan (Raymonde) Creasy and sisters Phillys (Les Evans) and Doris (Louis Swanson). Iris was predeceased by her parents; infant twin sons; and brothers David, Martin, Bryan and Donald. A Funeral Service was held on Friday, October 11, 2013 at 2:00 p.m., from Camrose United Church with Rev. Brian Hunter and Mary Ann Pastuck officiating. Interment has taken place in Valleyview Cemetery, Camrose. If friends so desire, memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to Battle River Community Foundation, the Hospice Society of Camrose and District, or to a charity of your choice.

It is with great sadness that the family of Andrew Hagen announces his passing on September 26, 2013 in Comox, BC, at the age of 70. (Alfred) Andrew Hagen was born in Hardisty, AB on December 9, 1942, son of Agnes (Heenan) and Alfred Goskall Hagen. He received his early schooling in Courtenay, BC, graduated from Burnaby South High School and set out to experience many once-ina-lifetime opportunities. As a result, his employment experiences were diverse. He worked as a jet engine mechanic in the RCAF, RCMP officer, race car driver and mechanic, logger, musician, record producer, business owner, newspaper publisher, radio personality and telecom/IT/security professional. Andrew was a technical genius and could fix just about anything. In 2008, he returned “home” to the ComoxCourtenay area to reunite with his high school sweetheart, Gale, and to embark upon his dream of restoring a sailboat and spending time on the water. During his last days, Andrew often said that he accomplished everything he ever wanted in his life and that his time in Comox held the happiest moments. Andrew is survived by his loving wife, Gale; daughter Andrea of Victoria, BC; his sister Mary Mackay (Gary) of Ryley, AB; his nephews; and extended family members. He was predeceased by his son, Clint. Andrew was also a mentor and played an influential part in the lives of many. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. At Andrew’s request, there will not be a funeral or service. Those who so desire may make memorial donations in memory of Andrew to a charity of their own choice.

Wrestling champion Volkoff set By Murray Green
Nikolai Volkoff will long be remembered in wrestling history as part of a world champion tag team duo. He partnered with The Iron Sheik to claim the title (as villains) in the World Tag Team Championship at the first WrestleMania. He was also a champion with the Mongols and Executioners, and had a good career as a single fighter. "I still wrestle because I love the sport. My grandfather was a champion, but he was killed before I was born. I fight in his honour and I like to remain healthy and stay in shape," said Nikolai. A special benefit live professional wrestling night on Oct. 20 will be held at the Camrose Fieldhouse to raise funds for Justice Wollman, an eight-year-old girl, who was diagnosed with brain cancer in late August. "To survive cancer is a long, hard fight. I want to help out because I like to see people happy and healthy," added Nikolai. Continued on page 19

Wrestling champion fights for Justice Continued from page 18
"When I got up to 345 pounds I had high blood pressure. I read and studied about eating healthier. Now I promote being healthier and this is my chance to help others." Local wrestling promoter Jack Daniels encourages Camrose to support the Sifton School student in her battle with cancer by making a donation or attending the show. The RockStar Entertainment Group and Wrestling Federation will be donating Justice's share of the amount to her trust fund and also to help the Kids with Cancer Society with the Fight For Justice wrestling card on Oct. 20. "Justice was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour the size of a walnut," explained Jack. The Wollman family will be travelling to Florida in January for a special type of radiation therapy that is not yet available in Canada. Justice, daughter of April and Justin Wollman, is currently in Grade 4. The wrestling night will feature Nikolai Volkoff, Harry Smith (the son of legend British Bulldog Davey Boy Smith), Jason the Terrible and midget wrestler Short Sleeve Sampson, who is on his farewell tour. About 20 wrestlers will be in several matches. A huge tag team event is also in the plans. Nikolai is probably best known as the evil Russian part of the famous tag team. "When our family left (Yugoslavia) we ended up in Calgary. I became friends with wrestling promoter Stu Hart and with the family including Brett Hart," he explained. "Stu was the nicest man in the sport and he helped me train. I fought for him for a year before moving on to Toronto and Montreal." Volkoff went south to become a major player in the early 1970s when WWE was still under the ownership of Vince McMahon, Sr. "I also became close friends with British Bulldog Davey Boy Smith, who was a very good wrestler. I'm glad to be on the same card in Camrose as his son Harry," he added. "I like to wrestle on weekends for independent promoters," he said. "When I was younger going every night was okay, but now I don't like to be on the road that much." Nikolai is more at home as a weekend warrior and helping people like Justice Wollman of Camrose. The doors open on Oct. 20 at 6 p.m. and the bell rings at 7 p.m. Tickets are available by calling 780-281-5078.

Concert this Thursday Guillaume Tardif and Roger Admiral will recreate the fun and flashy atmosphere of 18th and 19th century opera by adapting its most showy vocal pieces for the virtuosity of strings and piano in a concert at the University of Alberta Augustana faculty this Thursday. You will hear Lensky's Aria from Tchaikowsky's Eugene Onegin, as well as selections from Mozart's Magic Flute, Donizetti's Lucia de Lamermoor, Verdi's La Traviata, Wagner's Parsifal and Gounod's Faust. The free performance will be held in the Faith and Life Centre chapel starting at 7:30 p.m. Guillaume Tardif is associate professor of violin and serves as head of strings and chamber music at the department of music, University of Alberta. Roger Admiral is a freelance musician and a university contract instructor based in Camrose. Most recently, Roger and Guillaume performed at Carnegie Hall, New York City. They have also presented concerts in Switzerland, Hungary, Austria, Korea and across Canada.
Which candidate has impressed you the most?
"I can't really put my finger on one. There are three or four I have in mind and I am glad to see that a few of them that were there before are trying to get back. There are a couple of new ones that look really good as well. The one good thing about this election is that there is a mayor's race."
Without listing specific names I would say the candidates who are expressing a need for a social and economic balance in decisionmaking. The health of our community is more than just the economic activity. Cuts in spending may lead to short term economic gain but the social and economic costs in the long run are much higher.
"I would have to say Norm Mayer. He seems to me to be very well versed with regards to the goings on in the community and is very approachable. For the school board trustee I would say Lorrie Sitler. I think there needs to be change on the school board and feel that she would be a good person to help bring that about."
Bill Sears, Tony Hladun and Agnes Hoveland are the ones who have impressed me. I like Bill's background. He has municipal experience from a distance and he is the only candidate who came by and asked us questions at Battle River Watershed Alliance pertinent to water. Tony Hladun has the business experience and would be a good addition to council.
"I really don't have a favourite in this election. They are all on the same playing field right now. I just have to almost pick one out of the hat. I don't know if any of them are what Camrose is looking for. I think we need some young fresh blood in town. Unfortunately we have the same old politics happening."
Bill Sears because he came over and sat with us at coffee here (Mirror Lake Centre). There must have been ten of us and he was the one that impressed me the most. He was just so candid and relaxed and that made us feel relaxed with him. (Pat Lofvendahl is a member of the Canasta Club which meets at the Mirror Lake Centre).
"I think one of the candidates for councillor that stands out for me above the rest in this election is Pat Mader Mundel. She is very much involved in the community and wants to do what is best for the community. She would work for things like arts and culture but also pay attention to the City's finances."
Bill Sears has made the biggest impression on me because he is straightforward and has not ruled out any options. He has not automatically said we are going to cut taxes. He is not really going to form any opinions until he gets in and sees what needs to be done, which is good because you can't continue to provide services while you are cutting taxes.
Camrose Open Door gears up for annual bed races By Laurel Nadon Special to the Booster
Four wheels, a mattress, teamwork plus a healthy dose of creativity will be the key to success at the Open Door’s annual bed races. The eighth annual event will be held on Saturday, Oct. 19 at 1 p.m. at the CRE, with all funds raised going towards housing and support staff at the Open Door. Randal Nickel, executive director for the Open Door, said that they have seen all kinds of entries over the years, from a pull-out couch and chuckwagon to a crib. “They’re racing beds to raise awareness for the need for housing in our community as well as raising funds so that we can provide that service,” Nickel said. Last year the event raised $16,000 and this year’s goal is at least $20,000, which will help offset the housing services and staffing annual budget of $200,000. Five-person teams will race about 10 beds on a 60-metre circuit, which can
Laurel Nadon, Camrose Booster Scotiabank staff members work on their entry for the Open Door’s 8th annual bed races, which will be held on Saturday, Oct. 19 at 1 p.m. From left to right are: Cheryle Jacobsen, Deb Leibel, Ryan Mohan, Ashley Bekkeheim and Dana Rempel.
take as little as 20 to 30 seconds to complete. After two time trials to rank the teams, the top eight go wheel-towheel in the championship round. Categories for prizes include Fastest Bed, Most Money Raised and Slowest Bed, with prizes related to team building activities such
as paintball passes and movie tickets. Judging begins at noon, with the judges looking at team spirit, costuming and time to decorate the beds. “It’s really meant for them to have fun,” Nickel said. “They put a lot of time and effort into it. They see a connection with the event
itself that it’s fun for them to do, but it’s also for a good cause.” Deb Leibel, customer service representative at Scotiabank, has had a team in the event for at least five years. They choose a theme the year before and then start constructing the bed a month before the event, with previous themes including a coffin, stagecoach and crib. With Scotiabank matching their pledges dollar for dollar, they typically win the Most Money Raised category, with about $5,000 raised last year. Leibel said that they have already raised $2,200 in pledges so far this year. “We have a lot of customers who, when they find out the bank is matching the money, they pledge more,” Leibel said. “It’s so much fun now, there’s entertainment, pie and coffee so come out and cheer us on.” The 11 team members, who take turns in the various races, have been busy welding, pressure washing and finding costumes for this year’s event.
“It’s a team effort. We have a lot of fun,” Leibel said, adding that the tellers have chosen Centra Cam’s bowla-thon and the bed race as their annual fundraising events. “It keeps our kids off the streets, so they have a place to go and to get an education.” Admission is free for all interested community members, and Fox TaeKwon-Do will kick the event off shortly before 1 p.m. with a demonstration. The demand for housing was highlighted this July after a needs assessment was completed, which showed that the group requires a greater focus on housing and supports. The assessment has led to a few changes at the Open Door. “It was no surprise to us housing and supports were identified as a high need,” Nickel said, adding that without housing, it’s much more difficult for young adults to go to school and work.

Candidates have their say on issues The Camrose Booster caught up with the candidates for mayor and City council after the election forum at the Bailey Theatre last week and presented them with four questions, asking them to answer just one. All responded with the exception of Agnes Hoveland. We hope you benefit from reading their comments.
TEN GOOD REASONS to vote for Mike 'Lefty' Morris
Russell Hawkins What is the most pressing problem that Camrose council needs to address this term? Specifically, what strength do you bring to solve that issue or assist in a solution? Then name three other problems which will keep councillors awake at night during this pending term of office. The most pressing issue council will face is the education and morale of taxpayers. The conflict within council over the past year has made some taxpayers wary of municipal politics. City council needs to treat our taxpayers with the respect they deserve, and we all need to remember that respect is a two-way street. My top priority will be to re-engage the taxpayers with their City council, and I will be honest with them. I am a no-nonsense, practical leader. I am willing to listen to questions that a mayor doesn’t normally want to hear, and I am willing to give answers that politicians don’t normally like to give. The problems that will keep council members awake at night are: 1) a public works building or a public swimming pool; 2) managing growth and attracting new businesses; and 3) ensuring an acceptable level of “quality-of-life” spending while maintaining core services.
Norman Mayer Should the City of Camrose be in the land development business, or should this responsibility be left in the hands of developers? What is your method of turning the City-owned lands on the eastern edge and western fringe of Camrose into revenue-generating residential lots and commercial properties? Several years ago, Camrose made the decision, due to limited demand for commercial Continued on page 28
Camrose is getting a new city hall, a decision made in good conscience by our previous city council. Now there’s talk of eliminating construction of the building’s third floor. Let’s move forward. Let’s use the whole building; let’s move Camrose Public Library into the third floor and convert the existing library into a home for the Battle River Animal Protection Society/City Pound. Let’s use our resources and our assets. Let’s optimize their potential. Railway crossings in Camrose should be silent. We should have arms installed to come down blocking through traffic instead of having the engineers blow their loud, intrusive whistles, waking up children and residents, disrupting sleep. A few years back, a list of about 400 citizens asked City Hall to move forward on this issue. The cost was estimated at $50,000 per crossing. The City’s land fund could pay these costs. Let’s move forward. As a city, we have had many quality business people volunteer on many different boards. Sometimes they’re not invited back to a meeting or think tank session because they dared to ask tough questions, moving away from traditional thinking that sometimes can hold us back. I would encourage those community-minded citizens to please continue to step forward. Camrose needs to be seen as a citizen-friendly city, not only a seniorfriendly community. Camrose is a great city in which to raise a family and that simple message needs to be heard more.
We all know taxes are a little high in Camrose, so I believe all city departments need to look at their budgets and find ways to cut or reduce spending without hurting our core services.
5. 4. 3. 2.
Public transportation must be a priority. The need was identified many years ago. Let’s move forward.
Our aquatic centre is in need of a major overhaul. Let’s move forward. As mayor I would open up discussions with the University of Alberta, Augustana Campus, and Dean Allen Berger, on ways we can work together to increase our student population. Increasing the student population would bring benefits to all of Camrose. The urban sprawl we are creating needs to be addressed. We need to decide if the city should be in the business of developing land. We should find ways as a city to help developers, both large and small. Let’s move forward with their projects in an efficient and timely manner. A tourism tax should be strongly looked at across the board. We have a handful of hotels that voluntarily collect a modest one per cent on their guest rooms which they contribute to Tourism Camrose. I believe all businesses which rent rooms by the day, week or month should contribute to this fund which helps us attract more events to Camrose. We all benefit.
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS, CALL MIKE AT 780-679-4891
Let ’s move forward... On October 21, please vote

Kevin Hycha on “tired” bleachers in Kin Park
What’s ahead for City Council? Many difficult decisions lie ahead. I’ve enjoyed dozens of conversations with people I’m hoping to represent by serving on council. The wants and needs of Camrosians are likely going to be more numerous than our limited resources in the immediate future, as council will be playing catch-up as a result of some of the very expensive projects championed by previous councils. City infrastructure’s needs have to be prioritized, or we as taxpayers will clearly have even higher taxes to pay. Basic core services will need significant resources in the immediate future, and it’s a certainty the mayor, councillors and administration have a lot of homework to do on some sort of significantly scaled back transportation system (talked about for years), some finite decision on the swimming pool dilemma, the waste water treatment situation, budget requests and suggestions from every city department.
It’s a time for efficiency, business judgment, and unsurpassed prudence. I wouldn’t be running for Council if I didn’t feel I could handle this enormous responsibility.

industrial and residential land, to remain in the development business in order that small parcels of land could be made available for potential development as required. One community found themselves in the position of having adjoining residential land owned by develop-
ers. During the construction slowdown, the developers would not develop small parcels of land; which resulted in no residential lots available for development. Camrose does not have the volume required, in either industrial or residential development, and would, therefore, not be able to entice major developers to
X proceed with a small number of lots at any one time, in order to accommodate slower growth. We have to remain in the land development business and develop what is required on an ongoing basis for both residential and commercial properties on the west and east side of Camrose.

I have been an active volunteer in this community, and I feel it’s my obligation to further contribute to the growth and prosperity of Camrose by running for mayor. Camrose needs a strong advocate, and I will be that advocate. I will work full-time with city council, listen to the taxpayers, and promote our city. My experience as an entrepreneurial businessman combined with my education give me the background and skills I need to serve Camrose and its citizens. Call me at 780-781-4116 and we can get together and talk.
MAYOR I am... *a business owner and entrepreneur *knowledgeable about environmentallyfriendly energy and construction *open-minded and progressive *innovative and creative *a problem solver *practical and logical *hard-working and dedicated *a team player *forward thinking and committed
* Taxes are essential in maintaining a city, but let’s optimize our efficiency using current tax dollars rather than raising rates. * Public transit and bike lanes would reduce car traffic and the deterioration of our streets. Making Camrose more bike-friendly would help improve the health of our residents. * We must grow our businesses to bring new money into the city and provide jobs for our growing residential base. * If we’re going to spend money, let’s make sure we’re getting the best long-term value, not short-term benefits at the future’s expense. I grew up in the Camrose area, and now my wife and I are raising our family here. I am invested in and dedicated to the long-term success of this community. Russell Hawkins

The CAMROSE BOOSTER, October 15, 2013 – Page 30
Mike Morris Should the City of Camrose be in the land development business, or should this responsibility be left in the hands of developers? What is your method for turning the City-owned land on the eastern edge and western fringe of Camrose into revenue-generating residential lots and commercial property? I believe land development should be left in the hands of private developers. We have many residential areas that need to be completed before any new areas open up. We have created an urban sprawl situation in Camrose. Developers have to turn a profit and yet we have a land fund that doesn’t appear to be making a profit. We are tying up City dollars. West-end commercial developments were spurred on by private developers with solid development agreements in place to insure tax growth in a timely manner. Our eastend business park doesn’t seem to have any agreements in place to help grow our tax base. I can only ask, why not? We are tying the hands of our economic development officer. He needs to be more than a real estate salesman. Let’ turn Ray Telford loose so he can use his skills and expertise in helping diversity our economic growth.
Doug Appleby With a significant portion of the City’s pledged MSI funding allocated to the current City Hall project through 2016, how will you address our pressing infrastructure needs and from where in the budget will the money come? Are you in favour of higher taxation rates to cover such costs?
With the MSI funding being spent up to and including 2016, there is going to be great difficulty in finding money to do all or any of the necessary infrastructure projects. I am not in favor of a tax increase to do any infrastructure projects. The only other option will be to debenture borrow to get these projects done. The end result is that we will have to debenture borrow to fix our roads and streets, when we should have debentured the loan for City Hall. The previous council avoided this because there would have been a possibility that, when they advertised that they were going to borrow the money to build City Hall, it could have been forced to a plebiscite. There would have been a possibility that it would not pass, thus the project would not proceed. We are saddled with that decision.
Mayoral candidates Norman Mayer, Mike Morris and Russell Hawkins sat side by side at the election forum last week.
Gordon Berg Is the perceived problem of unreasonable delays for building and renovation permits in our engineering and building department real? If you believe it is, how can we count on you for a solution to the situation? The one common comment from the builders and contractors I talked to was that there are definite delays in the issuing of building and renovation permits in our engineering and building department. They feel that the biggest reason for that is that they need more inspectors (currently there is only one) to keep up with the demand. A suggested solution for this is that the City could outsource the building and inspection permitting to companies that specialize in this area. The hiring of independent companies would greatly speed up the permitting time and help avoid any conflict of interest situations. However, before any recommendation is made, a thorough assessment must be done of our current process by asking current staff and builders and contractors how they feel this process can be improved. I would also encourage that we study how other municipalities do it. After a thorough review, we would recommend changes.
Phil Hall Is the perceived problem of unreasonable delays for building and renovation permits in our engineering and building department real? If you believe it is, how can we count on you for a solution to the situation? This issue confuses me a little as my wife Satuot and I just completed our new home that we started in the fall of 2010. I’m certain there were different administration and building inspectors at this time. I dropped off the development permit and was told about five days. A week later I checked my email and my approval was already there and done. I went for the building permit and had that in less than a week as well. So, here is my point,
based on some of the complaints I’ve heard lately. What the heck has changed since my great experience? I can plainly see that we are no way as busy compared to some years. Just drive around and see for yourself. My question to the mayor, council and administration would be, "Have we less competent people now than we had before?" Is there more senseless bureaucracy now than there was before? How has the service gone from good to totally unacceptable? We either fix it, or get the people who can!
Janet Hatch Most communities of our size in the province do not allocate the percentage of budget we do to policing. Are we spending an appropriate amount of money on policing for our citizens? Can we sustain this level? Camrose is home to an outstanding local police service. Although it's true that we pay a slightly higher per capita rate for policing than other comparable municipalities do, we receive a substantial benefit to our community as a result. Having our own municipal police service enables us to have our own Major Crimes Unit, our own K-9 Unit, as well as a Forensic Identification Specialist. All of these services are offered through the RCMP, but not generally in smaller centres such as ours. This allows our police to react to situations immediately and efficiently, resulting in more successful crime detection and protection for our citizens. It is my belief that the level of spending allocated to policing in Camrose is both appropriate and sustainable for the added benefit we receive.
Anthony Hladun With a figure of $50 million being thrown around for a replacement water treatment plant, give us your view on this project. The timeline? The funding model? The necessity? Also, the ramifications of the Cargill crushing plant on this project and our water source situation once
the now-being built plant is up and running? Treated wastewater must meet specific standards so two factors determine when Camrose will need a new treatment facility: as population and industries increase, our facility may not be able to meet current standards. Also, when Camrose reaches 20,000, a higher standard will apply. Alberta Environment sets the regulations and we must meet them. The Cargill plant will increase our wastewater, but the makeup of their discharge will determine the impact on the overall system. We cannot predict when the treatment facility will need to be replaced, but it will happen sometime. Funding could come from two sources: one is provincial (and federal) grants, but these are uncertain. The second is municipal borrowing, where a 30-year $50 million debenture would cost us and our children about $3 million per year. It is possible that added front-end treatment could augment the existing facility and extend its life at a lesser cost.
Garth Horton With a figure of $50 million being thrown around for a replacement water treatment plant, give us your view on this project. The timeline? The funding model? The necessity? Also, the ramifications of the Cargill crushing plant on this project and our water source situation once the now-being built plant is up and running? In regards to a water treatment plant I believe that having clean, safe water is the number one priority for Camrose. If elected to City council it would be my goal to work towards the goal of replacing the water treatment plant. This can be accomplished by working with all levels of government to ensure that this burden is not totally the municipal taxpayer’s responsibility. There has also been much discussion about the amount of water that we have at our disposal. Many ideas such as a pipeline from the North Saskatchewan River to bring water to Camrose and
dredging Dried Mead Lake to increase our water availability have been discussed. Any of these solutions would require careful study and consideration. It is my goal to involve the residents of this city by having public forums, to provide input and support to the process of ensuring an abundant supply of safe, clean water.
Kevin Hycha A new public works facility, a new library, a new animal rescue shelter, a new swimming pool are just a few of the potential capital projects that have been talked about in the recent council term. Of these, or other capital-intensive projects, what are your personal priorities, your time-line for same, and your funding formula to see these to fruition? I agree that Camrose has a number of facilities, along with a number of streets/sidewalks requiring attention. Approaching these issues needs to be carefully examined during the budget process. At that time, prioritizing each of the issues would be my goal. If I had to pick one, I would examine the needs of the aquatic centre. I'm told the pool is too small to hold competitions, the water is so cold the kids' lips turn blue, and the dressing rooms are out dated. If possible, I would make the pool more appealing to use, but if it’s not economical or practical then ultimately I would like to see a new pool built so that it attracts events much like the arena does, which it is attached to. This would bring visitors, revenue and possibly more employment to our city.
Max Lindstrand What is your goal pertaining to additional affordable housing in the community? What is the right formula for additional dwellings in this program? Do we, in fact, want and need more affordable housing in the City of Camrose? Can we afford it? Many residents of Camrose have need for affordable housing.

pursuing provincial grants to support affordable housing options. Four initiatives that have been supported by City Council in recent years include: Rose City Affordable Housing Project – 24 units; Jamieson Manor – 49 apartments; Habitat for Humanity – 22 homes since 1995; Private Developer – several units. The primary role of City council, in addressing the affordable housing issue is to continue to lobby for funding from the provincial and federal orders of government. Additionally, we can try to make land available for affordable housing initiatives. Finally, council needs to continually monitor the supply and need for additional units for families who are struggling with the burden of paying a substantial portion of their income for shelter. These families include those on social assistance as well as those that can best be described as the working poor.
families, and singles who have recently moved to Camrose. They’ve been telling me they love what Camrose has to offer: its character, sense of community, and amenities. They say it’s no problem commuting to work, because living in Camrose is worth it. So, the remark is only partly fair. Local job opportunities can be pursued with the expansion of Camrose’s two biggest employment sectors: health and education (for quality, local jobs). Furthermore, we can maximize use of our sports and arts facilities for employment related to theatre and arts festivals, sports events/academies etc., and capitalize on being a regional centre for tourism, shopping and conventions. I would vigorously promote the business retention and expansion program spelled out in Camrose’s Economic Development Plan. Additionally, we can pursue agricultural-based, valueadded processing opportunities that are not water-use intense.

I am committed to taking this on as a project to see if other communities are experiencing
what is perceived to be a problem. I hear that a lot of young people choose to leave Cam-
rose and test the waters elsewhere. That is just the way it is.

I will take a look at our community as well as other communities to see if this is a trend for them or not. If it is, I will ask why? If this is not the case I will ask why not? I will endeavor to find out what other communities offer that would make youth want to remain in their home community. This could very well involve an effort to attract some non-retail or service industries to Camrose. It will mean phone calls, personal contact, as well as visits to other communities as well as to our own to find out the answers.
“A voice for the arts community” Gordon Berg cherishes Camrose’s rich history with the arts. He believes we need to embrace the Bailey Theatre and the new Performing Arts Centre, and find ways to help Camrose’s many dance and drama groups to utilize these facilities more. If elected to city council, Gord would be a strong advocate for the arts, and is also passionate about Camrose’s vast parks system. He is a forward thinker, and is supportive of: the new City Hall project, the need for a new swimming pool, upgrading our water treatment facilities, establishing a joint City/County industrial park, an assessment of all the sports fields to determine if they need upgrading and would like to revisit the idea of bringing a public transit system to Camrose. Berg sees an opportunity to lobby the provincial government to have counties share pipeline and power line tax revenues. Through his experiences on many boards and executives, with part of his career spent working for various municipalities in Alberta, Gordon Berg has the knowledge and understanding that is required to be a great representative of the people of Camrose.

It has been said publicly that one of Camrose’s top industries is exporting youth who are forced to leave the community for employment opportunities. Is this a fair remark? What will your role be in attracting non-retail or service industry employers to Camrose? I do not believe that that remark is fair. Not all our youth will leave Camrose for employment. Those that do may have to leave to get higher education such as a surgeon, or those wanting to see what big city life holds for them. We have excellent schools here and the Augustana University is second to none. Cargill is opening its plant here soon, which will give a lot of youth new positions. There is the High Velocity Equipment Training College that teaches how to run large bulldozers and graders, those looking to drive those large trucks for the oil sands.

Joan Petruk In terms of demographics, the population of Camrose is much older than cities of comparable size in the province. What challenges will surface in this regard going forward? How should City Hall address, alter or recognize this phenomena? Camrose has one the highest percentage of seniors of any community in Alberta at 20 per cent. This can provide both challenges and opportunities. Many seniors live alone and have an increased need for healthcare and other services. When no longer able to drive, they will need transportation to doctor’s appointments, and shopping. They may need help with routine home repairs, lawn care and snow removal. Some may find it difficult maintaining their home and choose to move to an apartment, lodge or be required to enter long-term care. Business/employment opportunities exist in servicing this group: multi-unit housing, long-term care, maintenance work, healthcare providers, grocery delivery, transportation, snow removal, shopping assistance, and entertainment. Camrose has celebrated this segment of the population for years and advertises Camrose as a senior friendly city. Personally, I believe that seniors living in our city can be a blessing and a benefit to our community.

Children... What are the ISSUES? • The current budget crisis needs to be resolved. Unprecedented hidden cuts to operations and maintenance budgets that calls for clear knowledge of day-to-day school operations. • Program Delivery and Assessment Practices. Ensure that there is clarity in the proper usage of AFL (Assessment for Learning) as best practice dictates. All children can learn; it is up to the teacher to use appropriate AFL strategies to engage students. • Professional Development of all staff must be encouraged and supported, and is essential to achieve the best possible results for children. • Providing support to School-based Administration as schools are asked to do more with less. • Establishment of PLCs (Professional Learning Communities). • Maintaining the culture and identity of Camrose in the Regional Division. There are Camrose-specific issues that require a Camrose solution. • The evolution of empowerment – we need to work to the inclusion of all voices rather than a limited cross section. • A renewed commitment to the mandate of Catholic education – more emphasis must be placed on bringing children up in the faith. • Meaningful parental involvement in the schools (meaningful to both parents and educators). • The role and impact of technology on our lives. • We need to look at how we communicate the accomplishments of our schools and school district.

Bill Sears What is the most pressing problem facing City council this next term? Specifically, what strength do you bring to solve that issue or assist in a solution? Name three other problems that will keep councillors awake at night during this pending term of office?
The most pressing problem facing probably any municipality at this time of year is the passing of the 2014 budget. The budget process will look at all the funding requests from all the City departments, compare those requests to all the sources of revenue that the City has, to determine the number of dollars that must be raised from taxation. Of course the challenge is to determine what level of
spending is appropriate to provide for the needs of the City while keeping taxes at an acceptable level. I believe the strength that I have in the budget process is that I have worked through similar processes many times at both the county level and the school board level.

Name three other problems that will keep councillors awake at night? The most pressing problem is how to spend our tax payer dollars responsibly. We need to spend money on core services, worthy causes such as Habitat for Humanity, reducing the debt, and making sure we have enough for recreation and culture. On top of all that, we need to have money in reserves for future capital projects and unexpected expenditures such as inclement weather, repairs to infrastructure, unanticipated events not budgeted for and offsetting a potential downturn in the economy. We have to do all this while keeping within our budget. I feel I have strengths to bring to council in this regard. I have been the treasurer of the student union at university and the treasurer of our local Alberta Teachers' Association. Having sat on several boards, I know how a budget works. I have taken financial courses in university. I believe that all money issues should be dealt with making good sound judgment based on research and examining all sides of an issue. Other problems that will keep me up at night: 1. Encouraging business development in Camrose that will attract families and support those already residing here. There needs to be businesses that pay high enough wages to support families. At the same time, we need to meet the needs of seniors. As a council we need to support these businesses whenever possible, giving local people priority if everything else is equal. 2. Everyone has a pet project be it library, an animal shelter, swimming pool, or transportation. Council needs a priority structure to decide which, if any, are looked at first. 3. I am capable and willing to take on the challenge of a steep learning curve, however it will keep me up at night.
PJ Stasko In terms of demographics, the population of Camrose is much older than cities of comparable size in the province. What challenges will surface in this regard going forward? How should City Hall address, alter or recognize this phenomena? While Camrose does

for the issues of your city on day one as Mayor. I know what’s on your mind because I’ve listened to your comments, praise and concerns pertaining to this community. I’ve been down this path before, having served Camrose previously as a councillor and your mayor. (Frankly, I think it would be extremely challenging to be in the mayor’s chair without councillor experience first). I know how much work lies ahead and I’m up for the challenge and the opportunity it presents for each of us who has chosen Camrose as “home” or to set up a business. I care deeply about this community. I’ve lived here my adult life and raised my family here, too. I’ve watched our community’s progress, participated in it’s evolution from a small rural town to a preferred regional centre for health, education and retail. Lately I have been increasingly concerned with City decisions that have the potential for negative impact on our city. Many discussions and well-thought-out decisions are around the corner.
I’d welcome the opportunity to represent you as Mayor of Camrose. I respectfully invite your vote on Monday, October 21st.

have an older population base, it is with good reason. Camrose is a beautiful and peaceful community with a very high standard of health
care and services. The demographic has remained the same from 1998 to 2011 with seniors comprising 20 per cent of our population.
There is a noted increase in baby boomers and from the ages of 21-40. City Hall has to be prudent to the fact that the older population has built

The future is bright for students in Camrose
he changes facing us today in education can be compared to a major house renovation. The frame is still in place, while around us everything is shifting and sometimes seems to be in disarray. Nothing is quite like it used to be and nothing seems to come easy. What gets any family through renovations is its ability to support and help each other adapt, with patience and the belief that at the end of the day, an improved house will emerge. I believe an improved house is emerging for BRSD. Enrolments are stabilizing. Student achievement is improving. Drop out rates are going down. The future is bright for students in Camrose. Let’s move ahead, there is more to talk about than assessment, and more to debate than zeroes. Upcoming issues include: • TECHNOLOGY – How do we balance its opportunities and challenges? • REALIGNMENT – How do we solve the problem of some schools bursting at the seams while others have extra space? • GOVERNANCE – How does the board fulfill its role as local government? In addition, board members need to understand the implications of the new Education Act and be ready to rewrite policy to be in alignment. They need to be familiar with the changes and improvements resulting from Inspiring Education, including curriculum, achievement tests, high school flexibility … the list goes on. During times of transition the only way to succeed is to wo rk together. The next Battle River School Division board needs to have vision, a commitment to exploring new ideas, and a plan to engage people in the conversation about education.

the services offered. Whether it is our parks and trails, policing, or the great facilities we offer, our level of service needs to be maintained or raised while maximizing and optimizing our tax dollars.
Wayne Throndson With a significant portion of the City’s pledged MSI funding allocated to the cur-
rent City Hall project through 2016, how will you address our pressing infrastructure needs and from where in the budget will the money come? Are you in favour of higher taxation rates to cover such costs? Many people have indi-
cated to me that while they don’t support the decision to build a new City Hall, the decision has been made and construction has begun so let’s move forward. While I agree with the sentiment it is also important that we understand the challenges the City and the new council will face as a result. With all of the MSI grant funding allocated for the next three years to pay for City Hall, we will not have the luxury of having those funds to assist with the cost of providing for our core needs – roads, water and, of course, the looming need of a new waste water treatment plant. These are needs our City must provide for. No one, myself included, enjoys the prospect of increased taxes. I cannot promise that taxes will not rise over the next four years but I can provide you with my commitment and my pledge that I will attempt to ensure that any decision to increase taxes will not be taken lightly and that every tax dollar will be spent on needs, not wants.
I believe that we as a community should expect services and public facilities for our community. These services and facilities are what attract and keep people in Camrose. Everyone in Camrose has worked hard to earn them. At the same time, we need to focus on a balanced budget. As the city grows, the high taxes we have now should spread more evenly to commercial and industrial properties. This being said, I feel that there are other ways to pay for our services other than relying on our taxes. Facilities such as a new aquatic centre will help bring more business into Camrose. The Encana arena is an excellent example as it has brought hockey teams from all over our country, who shop in our stores and stay at our hotels. More of these types of facilities will help us grow and stay on budget.
With a significant portion of the City’s pledged MSI funding allocated to the current City Hall project through 2016, how will you address our pressing infrastructure needs and from where in the budget will the money come? Are you in favour of higher taxation rates to cover such costs? The chosen use of the MSI funding by administration and council will most
As a community are we collectively expecting too many services: wanting public facilities that are too grandiose and seeking amenities in our city which are too costly for our tax base? If your answer is yes how would you address this situation?

I have worked and volunteered in this community for over thirty years. I care about Camrose and the citizens who live, work and play here. I believe that City Council must be fi nancially accountable to the residents of this great city. Stabilize taxes and listen to the concerns of all citizens.

RE-ELECT MAX LINDSTRAND to City Council on October 21st
I have learned a lot about the affairs of the city. If re-elected, I can continue to make a strong contribution. My experience will be a valuable asset, especially since there will be a high turnover on council.
...definitely a priority for me.
My priorities for the next term include:
Typically, younger families have not had a “loud” voice on Camrose Council. I’d like to be that approachable individual who represents this demographic. This doesn’t mean my time and energy will be exclusive to this area. Our services, parks, facilities and infrastructure matter to each and every one of us - regardless of age or social status.
Ensure excellent levels of service, with taxes competitive with other cities. Encourage growth and development while preserving the beauty of our city. Provide services to the entire population of Camrose, including housing needs and transportation both within the city and beyond. Promote the preservation of our environment, including waste reduction and water conservation.
Camrose is where my husband and I have elected to live and raise our family. My goal would be a Camrose that our kids can afford to live in, get educated in and in which to land their own careers.
Support the performing arts. It will be a challenge to operate both the Camrose Performing Arts Centre and the Bailey Theatre. A single Arts Council is needed to maintain both facilities. Review our capital plan in consultation with the citizens of Camrose. The pool and library have been identified as needing attention.
I’d like to play a part in a

certainly handcuff the next councils ability to deal with upcoming infrastructure needs. First, the existing capital budget that relies on other sources of funding will have to be reviewed and reprioritized to ensure those funds are used for the most pressing issues. It is extremely unlikely that council will have the luxury of any discretionary capital projects in the next term, at least until the dust settles on the two major projects underway. To the extent that the capital needs exceed available funding, council will have to look at a combination of reallocating existing reserves, cutting operating expenditures and additional borrowing. To the extent that operational spending is not reduced, any additional borrowing will result directly with increased taxes or utility rates as that new debt load begins to be repaid. I would only accept resulting higher tax or utility rates over the next four year term if required to maintain our core infrastructure.
Sara Zylka With a significant portion of the City’s pledged MSI funding allocated to the current City Hall project through 2016, how will you address our pressing infrastructure needs and from where in the
budget will the money come? Are you in favour of higher taxation rates to cover such costs? I would have to reword the question from "significant portion" to overspending the MSI (Municipal Sustainability Initiative). Currently, we have $4,811,306 in cumulative unspent. It's 2 014 , where $10,000,000 from the MSI funds have been directed towards the City Hall rebuild. This will put the MSI fund to ($1,991,613). Which, as you can see, makes it tough for the elected in council to look at promising any new projects in infrastructure any time soon. It is from overviewing the f inancial documents of the City and MSI grants that any new infrastructure projects would have to potentially wait until 2019, as public works is slated to utilize $9,250,000.00 from 2016 -2019. Any new infrastructure projects would ultimately have to come from cutbacks in other areas or higher taxation rates. I am not in favour of higher taxation rates and feel once new council is elected on October 21 and begins to review and implement, the upcoming budget areas can be looked into that could potentially create the opportunity for a new project in the next few years. It's important that who you vote for in this election is aware of the financial situation.
For strong, experienced leadership on City Council vote:
Severson ready to promote business By Murray Green
Kendall Severson of Bawlf wants to use his experience as a Battle River School Division trustee to serve as the Division 3 councillor with Camrose County. "I want to give something back to the community. I have nothing against the current council, I just want to bring a new perspective and offer fresh ideas," said Kendall. "I would like to attract more industry and business to the county to increase the tax base. It would bring in more higher paying jobs to the community." Kendall wants to find the right balance between preserving prime farm land and adding more business. "I read some disturbing comments from the past that we are so concerned about giving up farm land as good stewards, but we are shooting ourselves in the foot because we are dying," he said. "As a school trustee, I see the student enrollment going down. We need to attract young families." Kendall prides himself in being fiscally responsible. "We need a balanced budget at all times," he said. "I'm not saying it isn't, but it has to be monitored. We have to constantly lobby the government, local MLA's and ministers and keep them in the loop of what is going on." As the father of triplets, Kendall has the skill set for the demands of council. "I've often been asked how I did it. You make a quick evaluation, deal with
the one that can be settled the fastest and then move on until all is quiet," he said in comparing it to serving on council. "As a farmer when equipment breaks down, you can panic, or just calmly deal with the problem and move on. This is the mind set I would bring to council meetings. I believe in listening to the residents and being their voice around the council table." Kendall added that he would make all decisions with careful thought to ensure the spending of tax dollars is done most efficiently. "I'm excited to be a part of the future council of Camrose County," he said. "I'm proud to tell people I'm from the county of Camrose. "I teach my children that it is important to be part of the community and spend your money in the community. It is important to keep the money in the area to keep it growing," he added.
Kendall has served on the school board for two threeyear terms and will be on for another four-year team. "While you are representing your division or area, you still have the best interests of the entire council or board in mind," he said. "You have to look at the entire area and see what is best for everyone involved." Kendall said the county is a beautiful place to live. "We need to promote it better. The county reclaimed the Blatz gravel pit and turned it into a nature centre. It needs to be utilized more. It is a great picnic area and it needs to advertised more. We have beautiful campsites. We just need to attract more people." Kendall would like to see old abandoned farm sites turned back into places to call home again. "We could do this without taking away more farm land," he said. Kendall believes the biggest part of the budget should go towards building and maintaining roads within the county. "We still have to maintain the roads," he said. "Our roads were not built for the big super B's and large machinery that we have now. We need to make sure the heavy loads are on the roads that are built for it. Our major roads have to be in good shape. We don't have any concerns about roads as a family."

PCN to present session on sports concussions Oct. 24 By Murray Green
As a parent, athlete, educator, coach or official you should be concerned about concussions. Primary Care Network is hosting a session called Sports Concussions – What You Need to Know on Thursday, Oct. 24 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the community room at the Camrose Recreation Centre. Local family physician with a special interest in sports medicine, Dr. Tim Weighman, will be speaking about reporting and taking care of concussions before athletes return to the field or rink. Dr. Weighman opened a Gemini Sports Injury and Musculoskeletal Clinic in the Gemini Health Medical Clinic. Dr. Weighman was in Canada six or seven times before settling in Alberta. "The first time (he was in Canada) I was the team doctor for the England 'A' rugby team in 2003 in Vancouver. It was the Churchill Cup and we were trying to raise money for Canada and the United States teams. UK rugby is quite wealthy, but we wanted to help the sport here and create more competition. Canada is doing well, especially the ladies." As a rugby player, Dr. Weighman saw first-hand the injuries in sports. "I started to get injured a lot, so I decided to retire and stay involved in sport in another way," he said. In 1999, he received his diploma in sport and exercise medicine. "I started as team doctor to a premiership soccer team in the UK. I did that for four years. Then I moved over to international rugby." There is no charge to attend the concussion session, but space is limited. For more information or to register visit www.comrosepcn.com, email info@ camrosepcn.com or call 780-608-4927.
Kodiaks caught off guard in overtime By Murray Green
The Camrose Kodiaks fought hard in the third period to tie the game with the Okotoks Oilers, but the visitors scored in the first minute of the extra frame to sneak away with two points in the 4-3 contest. Former Camrose player Ty Clay came back to haunt the Kodiaks as he scored the opening goal and assisted on the second tally. Josh Smith, Ryker Leer and Jody Sick netted the Camrose goals to put the team up 3-2. However, a power play goal by the Oilers later in the third knotted the game once again. Devin McDonald stopped 34 of 38 shots he faced in the Camrose net. The Kodiaks fired 31 shots at the Oilers' net. The Canalta Hotels AJHL Player of the Week distinction went to Tanner MacMaster of the Camrose Kodiaks. MacMaster recorded eight points in four games, including a four point night on October 2 against the Sherwood Park Crusaders. MacMaster was twice named the star of the game during the week of Sept. 30 to Oct. 6. The 17 year-old was leading the Kodiaks in scoring with 12 points and is averaging 1.1 points per game. Tanner MacMaster has committed to Boston College for next season. In his rookie season, MacMaster led all first year players in scoring with 48 points. He had six game winning goals, and

Vikings grab four points from Briercrest By Murray Green
The Augustana Vikings hockey team earned four points against the Briercrest Clippers. However, it did give up a point in the process. The Vikings cruised to an 11-4 victory on Oct. 4 and then they were lulled into a rematch the next day in the EnCana Arena. Briercrest forced overtime by scoring with about two minutes left in regulation time. Augustana was shocked into reality during the break and then bounced back with a goal just 25 seconds into overtime. In the first game, Adam Johnson was the offensive leader with four goals and one assist. Linemate Scott Aucion chipped in with five assists. Godric Tham and Jeremy Beirnes both scored twice, while Craig Cornelsen, Kenny Bradley and Brad Bourke collected single markers. Goalie Chase Martin stopped nine of the 13 shots he faced in the Augustana net. The Vikings fired 50 at the Briercrest cage. Aucion was the hero in the rematch in overtime for

the Vikings. Jeff Lorenz, Devon Hobbs and Johnson also scored for Augustana. Martin stopped 18 of 21 shots as the Clippers put up a good fight to earn a point. This time Augustana had 54 shots directed at the Briercrest net.
The Vikings head to Keyano in Fort McMurray for two games on Oct. 18 and 19. Augustana's next home game is on Oct. 26 when the Grant MacEwan Griffins are here for a 7:30 p.m. start in the EnCana Arena.
Cross-country running The Vikings went to Concordia in Edmonton on Oct. 5 to compete in a grand prix meet. Keeley MacCulloch became the top women on the Vikings by placing 17th. On the men's side, Hans Asfeldt led the way by cracking the top 10. As a team, Augustana was fifth in the men's category and sixth in the women's division. The Alberta championships are back at Concordia on Oct. 26 and the nationals are in Etobicoke, Ontario on Nov. 9. Volleyball The volleyball regular season opens with Augustana hosting Olds on Oct. 25 for both women's and men's play. The women's match begins at 6 p.m. and the men follow at about 8 p.m. Basketball The basketball teams open the season in Olds and SAIT on Oct. 24 and 26. The men also open regulation play in Olds and Calgary. Curling The Vikings will be hosting the fall curling draw on Nov. 22 to 24 at the Rose City Curling Club.

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.
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.
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.

The needs assessment led to Café Connections closing at the end of September. Café Connections had a three-year mandate and had already operated for four and a half years. “We felt it wasn’t possible to keep both going,” Nickel said, noting that the staff’s fundraising energy was needed for housing and supports. As Café Connections offered the young adults an important opportunity to hone their work skills, staff at the Open Door are still working with the youth on skill development, just not in a café environment. “We can continue the life skills part of it,” Nickel said. The Open Door currently provides housing for 45 to 60 at risk young adults in the community annually, with a total of 150 youth assisted including drop-in support. Pledges for the bed races can be made online, at the Open Door office, or with any registered bed race team. To learn more, contact Nickel at 780-679-6803.
Battle River Community Foundation secretary By Reesor presented a cheque to Sheralyn Dobos, program director of the Family Violence Action Society.
The Battle River Community Foundation has granted $1,000 to the Camrose and District Family Violence Action Society. The grant is from the Community Fund and will assist the Family Violence Action Society to provide counselling services to children affected by family violence or anger, and who have no other options for services. The service aims to equip children with improved awareness, communication, stress management and conflict resolution skills. The Battle River Community Foundation exists to support projects, such as this, in East Central Alberta which benefit the local communities and have a positive impact on the future. Grants from the Battle River Community Foundation are made possible through the generosity of individual donors and organizations that have created endowment funds. The principal of these endowment funds is kept intact and the income is made available annually to support local projects and organizations. Some grant funding is also made available by generous donors who make flow-throughl gifts to the Battle River Community Foundation. Since it was founded in 1995 the Battle River Community Foundation has granted over $1,700,000 to support important local initiatives and organizations such as the Camrose and District Family Action Society.

Genealogy speaker shares ideas on saving pictures By Murray Green
The Camrose Genealogy Society will be welcoming a guest speaker to the community to share her expertise about keeping your family photographs intact. A workshop entitled What’s in a Picture will be presented by Alison Freake, textual records conservator at the Provincial Archives of Alberta, on Saturday, Oct. 19, from 1 to 4 p.m. The free workshop will help with the identification of photographic images and will illustrate solutions to common problems faced by family historians in preserving family records. Alison has worked at the Provincial Archives of Alberta since 2001, when she completed the collections conservation and management program at Sir Sandford Fleming College. She graduated from Memorial University of Newfoundland in 1999 with a Bachelor’s degree in Archaeology/Physical Anthropology and Biology. Her work focuses on the
care of paper-based material, including photographs, maps, plans, and works of art on paper. She also supports the heritage community by working with members of the general public and other Alberta institutions to resolve preservation issues. Alison will explain photographic materials, paper, parchment, bound volumes, textiles, works of art on paper, and various audiovisual media, which are all present issues for the keeper. This particular session will address identification of photographic images, as well as care and handling, storage environments, framing and display, and guidelines for choosing and using archival-quality storage materials. In addition, Alison will explore ways to read photographs using clues inside the picture. The session will be held at the Camrose Public Library, downstairs in the meeting room. Call 780-6086243 for additional information.

St. Mary's celebrates Excellent adult condo location patient safety week By Murray Green
Covenant Health St. Mary's Hospital will be joining the celebration of Canadian Patient Safety Week from Oct. 28 to Nov. 1. This year’s theme is Ask, Talk, and Listen, a message that is seen in the hallways of St. Mary’s Hospital. "Health Care professionals, patients and families are encouraged to ask questions, listen to answers and talk about their concerns," said Catherine Turn, clinical safety coordinator. St. Mary’s Hospital has implemented strategies from Safer Healthcare Now! to improve patient safety and measure safety initiatives. "You can do your part to stay safe. Know your medi-
cations. Keep an up-to-date list with you, including any vitamins and herbal supplements and keep your identification with you (driver’s license, Alberta health care card)," advised Catherine. Expect that your identity will be checked in the hospital by asking your name and birth date and placing an arm band on yourself. Stay healthy by preventing falls. Ensure your environment is free of clutter and wear proper footwear for the weather. Stop the spread of germs. Wash your hands often. Stay home if you feel sick. Get the flu shot. "Good health care starts with a question," said Catherine.
