“Life can change in a blink of an eye; it’s good to know STARS will be there.” Time and time again the skilled flight crew and on-board emergency medical personnel have been there for everyday people, from all walks of life, when they most need the service. STARS flew 15 missions to Camrose in 2012. Since 1985, STARS helicopters have come to the rescue of Camrose and area citizens on more than 350 occasions.

Camrose Friends of STARS

are doing everything they can to ensure that this amazing service is able to continue. Committee members are in the final stages of planning for and, ultimately, hosting the 19th Annual Dine and Dance at the Camrose Regional Exhibition, Saturday, November 2. It will be an evening of auctions, raffles, entertainment and a good time for all. Most important of all it will be a fund-raiser for STARS.

Norm Mayer back in familiar position By Dan Jensen

Norm Mayer will be back in the mayor's chair at the organizational meeting of the new Camrose City council tomorrow night (Oct. 30). Mayer received 2,137 of the 4,475 votes cast for mayor on election night, Oct. 21 – 470 more than Russell Hawkins and 1,466 more than Mike "Lefty" Morris. "I have a reasonably good mandate and I am happy with that," explained Mayer after all the counting had been done. "I think people feel that I am the one to do the job and I feel I am able to do the job for them. Hopefully it will work out for everyone." Mayer campaigned on the need to reduce barriers to development. "We have to look at the cost of development and at the time frames involved in getting things done," he said. "We have to try to work with the citizens and try to work with the business people to

Norm Mayer

encourage a healthier community and have people enjoy doing business here. That hasn't been happening because of the roadblocks." Mayer believes the City bylaws that have been stifling development will have to be evaluated and changed. "Until you get right into it sometimes it is hard to analyze what should be done,

but certainly we have to take a look at the bylaws and move forward as a business," said Mayer. "It is a matter of council getting rid of all the red tape." Mayer said when he announced his candidacy for mayor last June that the people who are feeling the lack of development the most are the individual taxpayers. "I think our tax rate is being borne by residential right now," he said. "If we want to keep that in line then I think we need to come up with additional assessable property in commercial and industrial." Mayer is looking forward to working with the new team of councillors. "I am satisfied with the people who got on," he said. "I think we can be harmonious in the decision making process and do our business without referring it back and forth several times before anything happens." Mayer served five terms as mayor between 1989 and

2004, and three terms as alderman between 1977 and 1986. Disappointment

Hawkins said while he was disappointed with the election results, he is confident that Mayer and the new councillors will go a good job. "Half of the councillors who were elected have previous experience, so I think the City is in good shape. It is definitely not going to fall apart anytime in the near future." Hawkins said he was ecstatic with the way his campaign went. "In the beginning I didn't think I had a chance, but as it rolled along we received more support so at the end I honestly thought I had a shot. I felt a lot of responsibility because there were a lot of people who were counting on me to win. I knew that if I beat Norm it was going to be close, and that if he beat me he wasn't going to dominate." Hawkins said the support he received came from all over.

"I had seniors telling me that they were voting for me, as well as students and families. It just came from a wide range. I think ultimately what did me in was that Norm has the experience and he is a known name." Hawkins said one thing that disappointed him was the fact there were not more women elected. "There isn't as diverse a mix as I would have liked to have seen but it is still pretty good. Four of the new councillors have previous experience serving on council." Hawkins said he will take the next four years to analyze whether he will run for election in 2017. "The election (process) hasn't made me not want to run again but four years is a long time, so it will depend on what happens. If I am still around and still feel that the City needs me, then yeah, I imagine I will be getting pressure in the next election to run again."

No shortage of experience on new City council By Dan Jensen

There will be no shortage of experience on the new City council. Max Lindstrand and Ray McIsaac, who received 2,297 and 2,116 votes respectively, have each served two terms, while Greg Wood, who received 2,298 votes, was elected for the first time in 2010. Wayne Throndson, who received the most votes with 2,359, served terms starting in 2004 and 2007. Throndson would like to see the new council focus on core infrastructure services like roads and sewers. "The municipal sustainability initiative money that is being used to build the new City Hall could have been more appropriately used to fund core services," he said when announcing his candidacy in August. "Using it to build the City Hall means we won't have the luxury of government grants to do that and means the only options available are to raise taxes, debenture or both. The City Hall will provide minimal benefit to the citizens of Camrose and potentially cost them a great deal." Throndson would also like to see the City adopt a more business-friendly attitude. "I think we have not seen a great deal of business expansion or new businesses coming into town in the last several years," he said. "A matter of considerable concern is that some people are saying to me that they wish they would never have built in Camrose. That is a sad commentary of where we are now. If existing busi-

nesses are questioning that, how do we attract new businesses?" Lindstrand believes the City must ensure excellent levels of service while maintaining reasonable levels of taxation. "It is vital that Camrose taxation levels be monitored closely in order to be competitive with other cities in the province," he said in August. Lindstrand said at a Chamber of Commerce election forum on Oct. 2 that he has learned a lot about the operations of the City. "I think I bring valu-

able experience to the table. I think it is important that our new council have members who have a good grasp of the issues that are brought to us by that experience." Wood feels it is extremely unlikely that council will have the luxury of any discretionary capital projects in the coming 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 combina-

tion of reallocating existing reserves, cutting operational expenditures and additional borrowing," he said in the Oct. 15 Booster. "To the extent that operational spending is not reduced, any additional borrowing will result directly with increased taxes or utility rates as that debt load begins to be repaid." Wood said he would only accept resulting higher tax or utility rates over the next four year term if required to maintain core infrastructure.

Ray McIsaac said in his election profile in September that the new economic development strategy will be beneficial in attracting new business. "I am hoping that we start getting some positive feedback to that," he said. "We need to start giving businesses reasons why they should be here and let them know what we can offer that other centres cannot." McIsaac feels the City is in reasonably good shape financially.

CALL NOW, province-wide Agnes Hoveland, who received 1,760 votes, said in her election profile in August that it is key for the new 1-800-898-3336 City council to have a balanced approach to deciding what services should be offered. "We have to look and listen, and evaluate what we can and cannot afford. In any organization, whatever size the budget is, there has to be a fiscally prudent approach where all the pieces are weighed." Kevin Hycha, who finished seventh in the election with 1,618 votes, said it is his goal to prioritize the facilities, streets and sidewalks needing attention.

This would bring visitors, revenue and possibly more employment to our city." P.J.

"I would be a voice for the whole community. Camrose is a beautiful and vibrant community and it would be nice to maintain that going forward for future generations." Patricia Mader Mundel finished ninth in the election, just five votes behind Stasko. The other unsuccessful candidates were Douglas Appleby who finished tenth with 1,538 votes, Joan Petruk, who finished 11th with 1,513, Valerie Sims, who finished 12th with 1,216, Janet Hatch, who finished 13th with 1,170, Gordon Berg, who finished 14th with 1,155, Sara Zylka, who finished 15th with 1,027, Tony Hladun, who finished 16th with 975, Phil Hall, who finished 17th with 818, Garth Horton, who finished 18th with 803, Dave Wolsey, who finished 19th with 659, and Sandra McLay, who finished in 20th with 434.

Man uses BB pistol to confront two other males downtown

October 25 Police have charged a man in relation to an assault which occurred outside a downtown nightclub on Oct. 24. A 23-year-old man, on probation for assault was charged for Assault Causing Bodily Harm and two counts of Breach of Probation. He was released on cash bail to appear in Provincial Court at a later date. October 24 A resident contacted police regarding a suspicious male in the yard of a vacant house. Police attended the residence and recovered stolen property that had been stashed in the yard. A suspect developed in the case was later questioned when stolen property was located by school staff. At 1 a.m. police observed a truck drive over parking blocks and a sidewalk when leaving a lounge parking lot. The truck accelerated to high rates of speed on 48 Avenue and was stopped downtown. The 20-year-old male driving the truck failed a roadside alcohol test and was arrested. He was charged for Impaired Driving, Driving While Over .08 and Dangerous Driving. A 911 call was received requesting an ambulance at a downtown nightclub. It was determined a male had been punched by another outside the establishment. The victim was transported to St. Mary’s Hospital where he was treated for a laceration on his face. Police have

a suspect in the matter and the investigation is continuing. October 23 Police conducting speed enforcement stopped a vehicle on the west-end. The driver produced a licence, which was quickly determined to belong to someone else. The investigation revealed the 32-year-old man was prohibited from driving and produced the licence in an attempt to avoid being caught. He was also bound by two recognizances for driving while disqualified. He was arrested and has been charged for Driving While Disqualified, Obstruct a Peace Officer, Possession of Another’s Drivers Licence, Speeding and Conveying Open Liquor. He has been held in custody to appear in Provincial Court. October 22 A male youth was arrested Monday evening after an investigation determined that he was breaching the conditions of the two Undertaking documents that he is currently bound by. The male was subsequently brought before a Justice of the Peace and his matters were adjourned and are to be spoken to in the Camrose Youth Court. October 21 Police received a report that a 1986 brown Chevrolet pickup truck had been stolen from the area near 45 Avenue and 73 Street sometime between Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon. The

truck was attached to a car hauler trailer that was also stolen. Subsequent investigation led to the recovery of the truck abandoned in New Sarepta later on Sunday. The investigation continues into this matter. Police were called to a downtown motel late Sunday evening as it was reported that a male was pointing a gun at two other males outside the motel. A 20-yearold Camrose man was consequently arrested and the gun was determined to replicate a handgun, however, was in fact a BB pistol. It was determined that the male had confronted the two other males over some unresolved issues between them, which led to pointing the pistol at them. The male offender was charged with Pointing a Firearm and Possession of a Dangerous Weapon and released with conditions and is slated to appear in Provincial Court. October 20 A male reported that in the morning hours his cell phone had been stolen while at an east end business. A review of the store’s video surveillance revealed that another male had entered the store and stole the cell phone off of a counter and left the scene in a white Dodge Neon. The male is described as being Caucasian, between 40 and 50 years of age, with brown hair and a brown moustache. The matter is still under investigation.

Gregorwich reclaims council seat By Dan Jensen

Don Gregorwich reclaimed his seat on Camrose County council Oct. 21. Gregorwich received 182 votes in Division 3 (KelseyRosalind area), 135 more than his opponent, Kendall Severson. "I am really happy with all the people who supported me both in going out to vote and delivering some of my brochures," said Gregorwich. "I owe a considerable debt of gratitude to my volunteers." Gregorwich has already served three terms as County councillor. "It is good to be part of

an organization that works to make a great place to live in," he said in an interview with The Camrose Booster in August. "This is truly a learning experience, even with the challenges we face in the future." Gregorwich said he is looking forward to working with "some pretty sharp individuals" on County council over the next four years. "I am pleased that we have moved to a four-year term," he said. "It will give the councillors more opportunities to see the results of their decisions and maybe react to the consequences of those decisions."

Gregorwich sees road building as the top priority for Camrose County over the next little while, followed by the provision of water and sewer services. Division 3 was the only one of the seven in the County in which voters were asked to choose between candidates. Jack Lyle in Division 1, Kenneth Krause in Division 2, Trevor Miller (incumbent) in Division 4, Brian Willoughby in Division 5, Gregory Gillespie in Division 6 and Doug Lyseng (incumbent) in Division 7 were all elected by acclamation.

Rose City Square Dance Club begins new season Submitted

The Rose City Square Dance Club will start a new season with a session for beginners at the Mirror Lake Centre this Friday, Nov. 1. "You say you can't dance? If you can walk, you can dance," said Rose City Square Dance Club president Darlene Delhomeau. "Two left feet are allowed. Every man who thought he hated dancing before joining the club loves it now. Hate those skirts and crinolines? Don't worry, they are not required."

Delhomeau's first experience with square dancing was during her high school years. "What a great time I had dancing, as half of the students from my high school also square danced," said Delhomeau. "Now some of you might be thinking, 'Really? How nerdy was that,' or, 'You must not have had anything better to do.' But in reality, we high school kids had lots to do. We were involved in many activities, such as curling, hockey, figure skating, volleyball,

softball, basketball, school choirs, music festivals, drama, just to name a few. And in your spare time one could also join the yearbook club or volunteer to help in other committees, such as the Red Cross." Square dancing gave Delhomeau and other 'young folk' the chance to be together, to laugh, talk, and perhaps flirt a little, but most importantly, dance off all that excess energy only teenagers seem to have. Did you know that in one night of dancing one can actu-

ally walk about five kms? That's a lot of steps and a lot of calories burned. "Square dancing provided us with a time and place to socialize, have fun, and enjoy fabulous lunches, and gave us the opportunity to make new friends with people of all ages," said Delhomeau. "Although we really looked forward to dancing with these good looking dancers that visited from other clubs." Delhomeau moved to Camrose just three years ago.

"I had the opportunity to join the Rose City square dance club and because of square dancing I again have the opportunity to socialize, dance and make new friends while having fun and getting more physically and mentally fit," said Delhomeau. "I invite you personally to come join us in having fun as I truly believe there are others out there who would also enjoy these opportunities." More information is available from Delhomeau at 780-672-0822.

Erickson, Sitler elected By Dan Jensen

Norm Erickson and Lorrie Sitler were elected to the Battle River School Division board of trustees as representatives for the city of Camrose Oct. 21. Erickson, a retired CCHS teacher, received 2,317 votes, while Sitler, a member of the Camrose Police Commission, Camrose Association for Community Living board, and part-time Augustana student, received 2,029. "I am pleased to be elected and I wish to thank all those who voted," said Erickson. "I know I have a lot to learn." Cheryl Smith, who went into the election as the incumbent, went down to defeat with 985 votes. Sitler said she was very happy with the results considering who she was up against. ""Cheryl Smith has been in there for a very long time and has given a lot to the community," she said. Erickson is hoping to retain some of the older educational practices. "I believe there is a place they can be effective," he said, "but at the same time I recognize that the education of our students is constantly changing. Before changes are implemented we must respect the views of others, listen, collaborate and move forward." Erickson said while there are things about the new assessment system that he really likes, he understands the points that have been raised by the parents. "The school district is pushing for assessment for learning and all those posi-

tive things that are great and needed to carry the student further into their education. At the same time, I think parents want a very accurate evaluation of what the student has actually learned. Yes the students want to know what they need to know to continue but, at some point in time they also need to know where they are at and what they can pursue." Lorrie Sitler said during her campaign she can provide some of the leadership that the Battle River School Division needs to maneuver its way through the tough challenges ahead. "I think I have many of the skills that can help bring the division to a brighter future. I am comfortable in lobbying the government and have several years of experience with special needs groups in advocating for an improved system." Sitler hopes that, as a school trustee, she can help repair the relationship between the BRSD and the community. "The implementation of administrative procedure 360 on assessments has done a lot of damage and is causing students and parents to feel as if they are not being heard or don't have a say," she said. "I want people to feel comfortable in voicing their opinion because it is important, in a successful education system, that everyone have a voice." Smith served as chair of the Battle River School Division board of trustees for five years. "I totally respect what she has done in her previous terms at BRSD," said Erickson.

Baier back as trustee By Dan Jensen

Ron Baier reclaimed a position on the Elk Island Catholic School board of trustees in the Oct. 21 election. Baier served five terms as trustee for Camrose before giving way to Luisa Davidse, who has served the last two. Baier sees the election result as an affirmation of the value of Catholic education. "My focus in the campaign was let people know why it is so important to maintain our Catholic identity." Baier said if Catholic education was not different than other kinds of education there would be no reason for its existence. "It would be a gross duplication of service. The difference is to be found in the mandate, which is to bring up our children in the faith. We find our reason for existing, our true justification, is in our par-

ticipation in the mission of the church. Our unique identity requires an integration of vision, of faith, of culture and life; we are called to form community." Baier said it is one of his goals during the next term to improve professional development within Elk Island Catholic Schools. "We have done a fairly good job but I see the need to improve on that to get assessment for learning embedded in the practice of all teaching." Baier would also like to see Elk Island Schools provide more supports to site-based administrators. Baier has administrative experience in a variety of school divisions and provinces, as well as leadership and service in local and provincial Catholic communities. He has done extensive work in policy development and was instrumental in the establishment of the Catholic High School.

Back by popular demand: Celebrating Seniors Day at Fall All New 2013 and Used Mirror Lake Centre Nov. 29 Members of Camrose Seniors' Coalition had to turn people away from last year’s Celebrating Seniors Day, a fun-filled event that saw well over 100 seniors fill the auditorium at the Royal Canadian Legion to mix, mingle, laugh and learn together. To ensure enough room for everyone this year, Seniors' Coalition is partnering with the Polka Club so that the event can take place in the auditorium at the Mirror Lake Centre. The Polka Club is one of many clubs for seniors that operate out of the Mirror Lake Centre as part of the Camrose Senior Centre Society. “The Mirror Lake Centre continues to resonate with seniors,” notes Margaret Holliston, executive director of Camrose and District Support Services, which hosts Camrose Seniors' Coalition. “We are excited to hold Celebrating Seniors Day in the auditorium at the centre this year. It will feel like old times. And, we are thankful to Bernie Boser and the Polka Club for making this possible.” What’s on the Celebrating Seniors Day agenda this year? According to Holliston, the day will be structured pretty much the same as it was last year. For example, A-1 Catering is preparing another of its famous roast beef dinners, a favourite among people of all ages, but especially seniors. The morning will begin with a rousing activ-

ity that will have people out of their seats to find out “who’s who in the zoo,” before settling down to learn about keeping limber while living with arthritis in a preventionbased, interactive presentation with Jana Evensen from the Healthy Living Centre. After lunch, local instructor Treva Olson will lead the group in some yoga-based stretching exercises (many can be done while seated) guaranteed to help keep people limber and in good shape to enjoy keynote speaker Bob Layton.

"Seniors give so much back to the community. Celebrating Seniors Day is our way of saying thank you." With over 40 years of broadcasting under his belt, Bob Layton knows what it’s like to start getting older. He has a reputation for thought provoking commentary, and is also an engaging humourist – not unlike Phil Callaway, who was the keynote speaker at last year’s Celebrating Seniors Day. Bob’s circuit has taken him from Inuvik to Las Vegas, and his audiences have included leaders in government, business, agriculture, education, police, the military and health care. He is also a popular choice among

seniors groups. Bob is rarely alone on stage, however. A member of the International Ventriloquists' Association, Bob will be helped out by a pal or two when he visits Camrose next month. As he puts it, this is the only way he can get the last word in when he’s asked to keep quiet. Sort of. Why celebrate seniors? Everyone involved with Celebrating Seniors Day appreciates the stories, wisdom and humour of our elders. “For the most part,” Holliston notes, “Camrose is a senior friendly community. Seniors give so much back to the community. Celebrating Seniors Day is our way of saying thank you, and to remember to always include seniors’ needs and gifts when we think about current services and future growth in Camrose. It is especially important not to forget seniors as they age. After all, we all hope to be elderly one day, and not to be left alone when that day comes.” Starting at 10 a.m. and ending around 3:30 p.m., Celebrating Seniors Day is a bargain at $25 per ticket. Tickets are available until November 22 at Service Options for Seniors (#102, 4909A-48 Street) or Camrose and District Support Services (2nd Floor, Camrose Community Centre, 4516-54 Street). Call 780-672-0141 or 780-672-4131 for more information.

Low voter turnout

Cargill makes $1 million donation to Camrose Performing Arts Centre

By Dan Jensen

Trying to get people out to the polls in municipal elections is almost as difficult as pulling teeth. Information handed in by Camrose returning officer Kim Isaak to the provincial government last Friday shows that of the 13,835 citizens eligible to vote on Oct. 21 only 4,556 (33 per cent) managed to make it to the polling stations. That's a decline from the 2010 election when 5,551 of the 12,725 eligible voters (44 per cent) cast their ballots. "It's a little bit disappointing considering that the number of eligible voters was more than it was last time," said Isaak. Twenty-one per cent of the eligible voters cast their ballots in the 2007 election, and 27.32 per cent of the eligible voters cast their ballots in the 2004 election. In both of those years, the mayor was elected by acclamation. A total of 40.7 per cent of the eligible voters made their way to the polls in the 2001 election when two candidates were running for the position of mayor and 12 candidates were running for council. Electronic system The 2013 election was the first involving an electronic voting system. "The machines were good; we had no problems with them at all," said Isaak. "The reason that we had the lineups (at the Community Centre especially which was busy all day) was that we didn't have enough voting compartments where people could fill out their ballots. Once you got to feed the ballot into the machine it went pretty fast." Isaak said one of the things she would like to see in the next election is another polling station on the city's south side. "We had three over here (downtown area) and for the most part, with the exception of the 10 a.m. rush, most of the day was very manageable. It seemed that everyone wanted to vote at 10 a.m." The new City council will have its organizational meeting starting at the Camrose County council chambers at 5 p.m. Oct. 30.

Cargill presented a cheque for $1 million to the University of Alberta for the performing arts centre Oct. 24. Pictured left to right are Augustana dean Dr. Allen Berger, Cargill Grains and Oilseeds commercial manager Ken Stone, Cargill corporate social responsibility and communications manager corporate affairs Brigitte Burgoyne, Cargill Grains and Oilseeds vice president of plant operations Doug Collison, Camrose mayor Marshall Chalmers and County reeve Don Gregorwich. By Dan Jensen

Cargill is making good on its promise to be a good corporate citizen. A week after donating $15,000 to the Battle River Watershed Alliance and another $15,000 to the Camrose and District Food Bank, the food producing and marketing giant went a few steps further by presenting a cheque for $1 million to the University of Alberta Augustana facultyled fundraising campaign for the Camrose Performing Arts Centre. "This is a contribution and investment that Cargill is making," said Cargill Grains and Oilseeds commercial manager Ken Stone in addressing representatives from the City of Camrose, Augustana and Camrose County in an Oct. 24 program on the performing arts centre patio. "We all share a role in building a sustainable, thriving community, and Cargill is delighted to have partners like yourselves to be able to do this." Camrose mayor Marshall Chalmers, who will be leaving office tomorrow (Oct. 30), expressed appreciation to Stone and the Cargill family for understanding what it means to be a great corporate citizen. "Both of you have been involved since day one with the dean and myself and administration to, at the end of the day bring this together," said Chalmers. "It is about the community and the region and you folks have really stepped up." County Reeve Don Gregorwich said the Cargill donation will have long lasting benefits for generations of our communities. "It is truly an outstand-

ing commitment and it is one that you can be very proud of." The gift was the biggest that Augustana has ever received in its 100 plus year history.

Mayor Chalmers

"What is particularly exciting to me is that this gift today is the beginning of an exciting partnership that involves far more than the performing arts centre," said Augustana dean Dr. Allen Berger. "Our friends at Cargill, like us, are interested in issues related to watershed development and sustainability, issues related to the sustainability of rural communities and issues related to health. Those are all areas in which we have faculty expertise. Those are all areas in which we have undergraduate students anxious to work on community service learning projects and undergraduate projects,

and so we very much look forward to the many other benefits, in addition to a new building on this campus, that will emerge from this exciting partnership." The donation brings the total amount raised for by the performing arts centre to approximately $3 million. "This, we hope, will energize some of the other fundraising we have to do," said dean Berger. "We are running a five million dollar campaign and a million dollars is 20 per cent of our goal, so this is a huge step in the right direction." The theatre inside the new performing arts centre will be named the Cargill theatre. "We are still working on a naming opportunity for the whole building so our hope is that we will have the Cargill theatre in the John Smith performing arts centre," said dean Berger. "We just have to figure out who John Smith is." The pieces of the donation started to fall into place this past summer when Chalmers, dean Berger and Augustana director of development Bonnie Anderson flew to Winnipeg for a one day meeting with Cargill's corporate officers to talk about Cargill possibly making an investment in the health, sustainability and future vision of the community. "They said from day one they wanted to be a great corporate partner," said Chalmers. "It was a real fit (for Cargill) because the County was already in on the capital side, as well as the City, the university and the province. We talked about that for maybe 20 minutes, then the con-

versation, as I remember, for approximately the next hour, switched to the collaboration between Cargill and the university and all the different things that could work." Cargill has indicated that the reasons for choosing Camrose as the location for the new oilseed crushing facility are proximity to the canola, proximity to the railroads and proximity to a university campus. "I know they are very interested in hiring Augustana grads and have talked to us about the possibility of student internships at Cargill – research projects that students might do in collaboration with them," said dean Berger. University of Alberta project manager Michael Madsen said in the program that the 550-seat performing arts centre project has been designed to accommodate most theatrical and musical performances. "It is a very intimate theatre; there is not a bad seat in the house. We have an orchestra pit which many smaller theatres do not have, so it provides a large capability for a city of this size." Madsen noted that the photovoltaic panels that will be part of the building's external finish will generate 122 kilowatts of energy and go a long way towards helping to pay for the stage lights. "This will be one of the first theatres in Canada in which the stage lighting will be all LED lighting, which reduces not only our power consumption but the cooling requirements," said Madsen.

Dream Team wins bed races for second year By Laurel Nadon Special to The Booster

The World Financial Group’s “Dream Team” won the Open Door’s bed races for the second year in a row, after a close final match at the eighth annual event on Saturday, Oct. 19. Ten spirited teams faced off for the cause, raising more than $18,000 for housing and supports for the Open Door. “It was outstanding,” said Camrose Open Door executive director Randal Nickel after the final race. “There are groups that put a lot of time and effort into the event. It’s great to see their participation and that they’re giving back to their community.” The Dream Team has competed at the event for three years, and won fastest team as well as backwards slalom the past two years. “We’re here to have fun and raise money for a good cause,” said Lana Gunderson. “It’s an important event because of what the Open Door does for youth. It gives them a chance in life.” The judges’ choice award as well as the musical bed contest were won by the Shelter Superheroes from the Camrose Women’s Shelter Society, with all racers in full costumes.

The “Dream Team” from World Financial Group push off from the starting line at the Open Door’s bed races.

Jessica Glimm, program manager, said their team raised $1,050. “Often we refer to the Open Door for counselling for families,” Glimm said. “Sometimes moms want to bring children 18 plus and they’d be a better fit at the

Open Door. We really love what they do in the community.” Signe Peake led seven youth adorned with Viking helmets on a warship for the Bethel Lutheran Sunday School Viking team. The team,

in its first year at the event, raised over $500 from the congregation. “We were trying to figure out ways to help the community and we thought this would be a good way,” Peake said. The Our Lady of

Mount Pleasant Clown Alley team, with Grade 7-12 students participating, also raced for the first time, raising $657. “I know a lot of people who have used the services at the Open Door,” said Grade 12 student Rayanne Delainey. Teacher Carol Breitkreutz added that the school likes to support the Open Door as the organization provides a great service. Team Arcanine, with racers from the Anglican and United Churches, was the second fastest. Other teams competing at the event were Team Fantastic from Creative Bedrooms, the Fabulous Five from Fox TaeKwon-Do, Charlie Killam Cougars, The A Team from the Open Door and the Ho-Ho-Ho Scotiabank team. A rib dinner for up to 20 people at The Canadian Brewhouse will be awarded for the most money raised category and will be announced once donations have been tallied. Donations can still be made online, at the Open Door office, or with any registered bed race team until Oct. 25. To learn more, contact Nickel at 780-679-6803.

Submitted The weekend of October 19 and 20 saw the first rehearsals for Alberta Youth Choir 2013 in Red Deer. AYC is an audition-based honour choir that, every year, brings together young choristers from all over the province. This, combined with the rehearsal weekend, provides an invaluable experience for the young people present. The amount of personal and musical connection that occurs over such a short period is astounding and deeply ful-

filling for all involved. It also provides a great opportunity to work with some extremely talented conductors and musicians. This year the choir is graced by the presence of the award-winning conductor Robert Filion. Mr. Filion hails from Ottawa, where he directs the vocal ensembles of École Sécondaire De La Salle, which have taken first place at various national competitions. Continued on page 23

Why choose laminate?


Laminate has come a long way. And you’ll be just as surprised by laminate that looks like tile or stone. As affordable as it is versatile, laminate flooring goes anywhere in your home. Perfect for any room. Laminate is the perfect choice for those rooms in your home that get a lot of traffic, like entryways and family rooms. It’s also ideal in basements where concrete slabs lack the level surface needed for hardwood. And you’ll love how easily laminate floors clean up in kitchens. Simplify your life. Laminate surfaces make it easy to maintain a great-looking floor. Their tough exteriors resist stains and moisture, providing years of unbeatable protection against scuffs and scratches. While there’s much to consider in creating the desired look, style and long-term performance of your floors, know that you’ll find beautiful flooring that’s made affordable at Wideman Carpet One. Plus, the experts at Wideman Carpet One are always available to assist you personally and answer any questions you may have.

November is Movember, the month to raise awareness about men’s health.

How can yoga help my health as a man?

Yoga can play a key role in men’s h health. Our bodies are like highpperformance machines: they are ccapable of amazing feats, but need constant, proper maintenance. A regular yoga practice helps flex and strengthen all body systems and gives you clarity of mind. Statistics show that 90 percent of men older than 85 have some evidence of BPH (prostate enlargement). This is a widespread issue. There are many yogic exercises that can boost prostate health and overall well-being for men of all ages. Try this exercise, which is similar to Kegel exercises for women: sit cross-legged with a straight spine. Inhale, hold the breath and contract the rectum, sex organs and bring the naval in towards the spine (called Root Lock). Exhale, hold the breath out and apply Root Lock again. Repeat for three minutes. Interested in trying yoga? Bring your partner to our Evening of Couples Yoga on Saturday, November 16 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. $70 per couple. Swan City Yoga also offers unlimited yoga passes for as little as $39.95/month! Visit for more info.

Q. A:

I have problems with constipation. What are some natural remedies I can use?

Constipation is one of the most ccommon digestive complaints, and it is m more common in women and people oover age 65. Natural remedies include tthe following: 1. Fiber, Fluids and Exercise – Most people do not eat enough fiber, drink enough water or get enough exercise, all of which help the body’s digestive system run smoothly. Foods that are high in fiber include whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Sprinkling one teaspoon of ground flaxseed over any meal is also an excellent way to add natural fiber to your diet. 2. Magnesium – Magnesium is needed for normal muscle function, including intestinal muscles. Magnesium relaxes the muscles in the intestines and also attracts water to the colon. 3. Aloe Vera – Considered to be a natural laxative, it is also beneficial to the liver. Aloe vera can be consumed as juice or taken in capsule form. 4. Stimulant Laxatives – Various other herbal laxatives and “dieters’ teas” are considered stimulant laxatives. However one of the risks of stimulant laxatives is that your body can become dependent on them for normal bowel function. For these and other supplements, visit us.

I have scheduled a hearing test.

What should I expect?

M Many adults have not had a hearing test since ggrade school. Today’s hearing examinations aare designed to identify and diagnose even m mild hearing loss. After gathering a health h h h history, the hearing specialist will conduct an ear exam with an otoscope to check for obstructions, infections or other medical conditions that might affect hearing. If there is no medical reason for hearing loss, the hearing specialist will perform a series if tests, including an audiogram, to discover the cause of any hearing problem. The following list of questions may be helpful in gathering information 1. What kind of hearing loss do I have? 2. Is it medically treatable? 3. Should I see a medical specialist for my condition? 4. What are the results of my hearing tests? 5. Are there specific frequencies or types of sound that I have more trouble with than others? 6. Will I receive a copy of my audiogram and other test results? 7. What are my treatment options? 8. Is there anything I can do on my own to hear better? 9. Can I prevent further hearing loss? We encourage everyone to be alert to any signs of hearing loss in themselves or loved ones, and take the necessary steps to avoid further loss in the future. Answer provided by: Gina

I know that I should be using social ssites like Facebook, Instagram or T Twitter in my business.

How do I find the time to manage all of that when I already work more than 40 hours a week?


Great question. I find one of the biggest cchallenges we face as entrepreneurs is sshifting from working IN your business tto working ON your business. Finding tthe time to implement a Social Business Strategy is actually easier than one thinks. The key is to understand that you do not want to be on ALL Social Media Platforms at once. Start with just one platform that your customer uses most and learn all of their tools that you can use for better time management. It might be Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest or other social sites like YouTube. Once you have established which social platform you need to use, then you create a Strategic Marketing Plan that will include what you want your advertising message to be for the next three to six months. There are two important things to remember when you create your campaign: 1. Your online advertising should be consistent with your other advertising. 2. Your online strategy CANNOT be just about your sales and promotions. Social sites are about sharing unique pieces of information.

Which investment moves should be avoided?


This Halloween season (and tthroughout the year,) avoid these ‘scary’ investment moves: ‘s • Paying too much attention to tthe headlines. Some headlines may seem unnerving, but don’t abandon your investment strategy just because the news of the day appears grim. • Chasing “hot” investments. You can get ‘hot’ investment tips from just about anybody. But even if the tip was accurate at one point, by the time you get to a ‘hot’ investment, it may already be cooling down. And, more importantly, it may not be appropriate for your individual risk tolerance and goals. • Ignoring different types of investment risk. Most investors are aware of the risk of losing principal when investing in stocks. Don’t shun stocks totally in favour of perceived ‘risk-free’ investments. All investments carry some type of risk. For example, with fixed-income investments, including GICs and bonds, you may encounter inflation risk – returns that won’t even keep up with inflation and will, therefore, result in a loss of purchasing power over time. • Focusing on the short term –If you focus too much on short-term results, you may react to bad news, or to a period of extreme price volatility, by making investment moves that are counterproductive to your goals. Keep you eyes on the future and stick to a long-term, personalized strategy. Answer provided by:


What is the best type of blind to reduce heat loss in the winter months?


Cellular shades are the most energy effi e cient type of shade. The attractive honeycomb design creates pockets of air h that insulate windows from heat and cold t to t lower energy bills year round. Cellular shades also offer great sound absorption to quiet rooms with hard flooring or vaulted ceilings. They come in a wide variety of colors and opacity levels for personalized privacy and light control. Fabrics come in widths up to 144” and can also be made in a convenient side opening design for wider windows or patio doors. They are a great choice for room dividers and closet doors as well. Cordless cellular shades also provide safety solutions for homes with children or pets. The popular top down bottom up or “café style”option allows cellular shades to provide exterior view and natural light while still maintaining privacy. They can also be made in specialty shapes like arches, octagons, hexagons and triangle shaped windows. Loss of heat through skylights can be tremendous in the winter, and cellular shades will be insulating while still allowing natural light to come in. A perfect finishing touch for your cell shade is an elegant cornice. They come in a variety of wood finishes or upholstery fabrics to complement any decor.

Is it possible to get the flu from getting a flu shot?


It’s impossible to get the flu from the vaccine. The vaccine is made from an inactivated virus. If people get sick after a flu shot, they had already been exposed to the virus – the shot didn’t cause or contribute to their illness. A major myth involving the flu: “Healthy people do not need to get a flu shot.” In fact, children over 6 months of age, pregnant women and adults should definitely get the vaccine. Another myth: “You can catch the flu from wet hair, drafty window or going outdoors without a coat.” In fact, all flu begins with the flu virus. Winter is the most common time for the flu because more people spend time indoors, in school and in the workplace where viruses commonly spread. And, remember – antibiotics will not work to end the flu. They do not work for a viral infection like the flu. They only work on bacterial illnesses. We provide flu shots at our pharmacies. No appointment is necessary. It’s a great decision towards flu prevention. Answer provided by:

My friends are talking about spending the money they’ll be getting from BRCU this week. What’s this all about?


We’re glad they’re excited. They should be. Some of the dividend cheques are going to be very, very large. When you make BRCU your financial institution, you’re not only a customer, you’re an actual part-owner of the company! So, the more business you do (the higher your deposits or larger your loan size) the larger the amount of money you’ll receive, annually, as your percentage of profit. Here’s an example of how our profit sharing works: Members earn profit on interest income and loan interest! Last year members earned 26.6% ($7,172,000) back for every dollar of loan interest paid or deposit interest earned. Wow! Example: a member with a $200,000 mortgage at 5% interest, paid total interest in the 2012 calendar year of approximately $10,000. That means a profit share in the amount of $2,600 was added to that member’s common share account. Quite a bonus, indeed! Does your “big bank” give you a bonus like that? Membership only costs $1.00.

Q. A:

I have a wireless printer, should I still use the wire?

Wireless printers are a great cconvenience. Being able to print from aany room in the house without having tto lug the computer to the printer to handy. Newer printers may also let you plug it in is han print directly from your phone or tablet. There are a number of circumstances under which you may not want to use the wireless feature of your printer. First, make sure you have a good wireless network. Your device relies on that wireless connection to transmit your files to the printer. A slow network or a poor connection will make printing slow and frustrating. Secondly, consider what you’re printing. Small files, like a short Word document or an email, are perfect for taking advantage of the wireless utility of your printer, but larger files like pictures can slow down your network and take a really long time to print. If you’re printing pictures, it’s much better to use your printer’s cable; it will take less time to print and won’t tax your network in the meantime. A wireless printer is convenient, but the wireless feature may not be your best choice all of the time. Answer provided by:

Message from St. Mary’s Hospital Community and Foundation Board Chair St. Mary’s Hospital continues to thrive by providing consistent and innovative ways to deliver acute care services in our community. St. Mary’s Hospital has served our community for almost 90 years. It has now been five years since the creation of the new Alberta Health Services and our own corporate restructuring under Covenant Health. We are proud to be part of the largest Catholic health organization in Canada. It’s not the name or the organization that really counts. What’s important is that when you need healthcare services they are, for the most part, here in your community. We are committed to treat you with respect and compassion and provide you with the best care possible. The information in this report highlights the services provided, our achievements and profiles some of our dedicated staff and physicians. Finally, I would like to thank our generous donors. Your support is truly appreciated as these donations to the Foundation make it possible to buy much needed equipment and enhance Back row, left to right: Judith O’Shaughnessy, Alan Heyhurst, Alan Heyhurst Board Chair our patient experience.

Accomplishments New Services and Support At St. Mary’s Hospital we aim to provide the best care possible. We continuously work on processes to improve our efficiency and caregiving with a program called LEAN. These projects remove “waste” (e.g., wait times, unnecessary staff practices) to enhance our patient care. We’ve conducted ten successful LEAN projects in the past three years and will continue to refine our practices this way. St. Mary’s and Alberta Health Services are collaborating on a twoyear pilot model of stroke care in Camrose. This pilot consistsof two components, the Stroke Unit Equivalent Care (i.e., strokepatients will receive rehabilitation on site); and Early Supported Discharge (i.e., stroke patients with mild symptoms are discharged early from acute care because our team provides expert stroke rehabilitation in their homes). Resources will be shared between these two components to expand stroke patient care and ease the stroke patient’s return to his/her home and community. As teaching facilities, St. Mary’s and the University of Alberta have partnered to pilot a clinical program so rural medical and nursing students have an opportunity to experience learning with supervised practice and shared learning modules. The program will also introduce the students to rural healthcare opportunities, Hospital Expenditures of $33,759,234 the challenges of rural healthcare, and were spent in the following way: development of a strong multidisciplinary team. St. Mary’s Emergency Department and the Camrose Primary Care Network perform a sixty second pulse check for patients eighteen years old and up. To date, approximately 10,000 patients have been assessed and 235 were referred for further examination. Camrose Community Physician Attraction and Retention Committee is sponsoring a Skills Day for 60 medical, nursing, and physiotherapy students from Edmonton. The students will participate at five different skill stations at St. Mary’s Hospital followed by an evening of entertainment showcasing Camrose. This will provide the urban students an opportunity to encounter our rural community and interact with our healthcare team.

Vote recount First of all, I want to congratulate all those who were recently elected, as well as the other candidates who ran. Even though I did not get elected to council, I

found the election process energizing. I hope you did too. Whether we are inside or outside of elected office, our community will be a better place for the range of volunteering, conversations and caring we engage in. My particular 2013 municipal election experience held extra excitement. When the results were shared on election night, three votes separated PJ Stasko and me. (PJ had 1,555 votes and I had 1,552). This meant PJ was elected as the eighth candidate on council. Upon hearing the close results, dozens of people called to ask me when, or if, there was going to be a recount. So, I requested one. It took place on Thursday, October 24. Those who were present in the room were the

Camrose election returning officer, the deputy returning officer, two other officials from the election team, PJ Stasko and I. During the recount, PJ gained three more votes. I gained one more. Four ballots previously rejected could be accepted, once human eyes and those of us in the room agreed that the intent of the voter was clear. Four additional admissible ballots in a race that had been separated by three votes. I am grateful that the recount took place and want to thank all those involved. Not only was PJ a true gentleman throughout the process, but I also appreciated how supportive, competent and professional our Camrose electoral officials were. PJ and I both had a

rare and fascinating opportunity to see close up the thoroughness required – and demonstrated – to tally and record election results. For the many who have asked me about the automated counting machines that were new for Camrose in the 2013 election, I learned that these same devices have been used by cities such as Red Deer, Fort Saskatchewan, Toronto, Canmore, Ft. St. John, Cochrane and Wetaskiwin. They have served these communities very well (in some cases for decades). In answer to another question that many posed: the machines do read all the markings, whether the voter employs an “x”, fills in the small oval on the ballot, or uses a checkmark or other

indication beside individual names. Over the four weeks of an election period, one is frequently together with “the competition” at public forums and other events. It is an intense and unique experience. In the process, one participates in some remarkable conversations and hears many different perspectives from the other candidates and citizens alike. Even though the election is over, I hope such remarkable conversations can continue. I look forward to seeing how we can work together in our different ways whether inside or outside of an elected role, to make Camrose the best it can be. Pat Mader Mundel, Camrose

Burgar Funeral Home Small Business of Year By Dan Jensen

Burgar Funeral Home has been named Camrose Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year. "It is a privilege to live in and serve this community," said Burgar Funeral Home co-owner John Person, who accepted the award with his partner, Cam Parker, at the Chamber's Small Business Week awards banquet Oct. 23. Person said Burgar Funeral Home has always worked to provide excellent customer service. "A wise man once said let us try and teach altruism and true service because we are born selfish." Parker said it is easy for him to come to work every day and serve the public with the same high standards that were set by John's father, Alver Person. "We all try to reach the goal that Alver set." Started by Hiram Burgar in the back of his hardware store in Camrose in 1906, Burgar Funeral Home has been at its present location on 51 Avenue since 1917. Hiram was eventually joined by his son, Rod, who became the owner in 1949. In 1959, Rod welcomed Alver Person and set wheels in motion for the construction of the present funeral home. Rod's funeral service, in 1962, was one of the first to be held after the new building was dedicated. After managing the business with Marg Burgar for three years, Alver purchased H. Burgar and Son in 1965 and renamed it Burgar Funeral Home. Alver was a highly respected member of the community and was actively involved in the business right up until his passing in the summer of 2011. Under his leadership Burgar Funeral Home expand-

Burgar Funeral Home partners Cam Parker and John Person accept their award.

ed to add a crematorium, a side foyer and office, and a monument display area. Another significant move was the purchase of the well-established Daysland Funeral Home. Burgar Funeral Home has sponsored a scholarship at the University of Alberta Augustana Campus for over 40 years, and is a member of both the Alberta Funeral Services Regulatory Board and the Alberta Funeral Services Association, with the funeral director as acting liaison. The business is also involved with the Camrose Hospice Society, Knights of Columbus, Royal Canadian Legion and many Camrose churches. "They firmly believe in the development of their community through the support of local foundations and

organizations," said Small Business Week banquet emcee Darrell Kambeitz. "Burgar has supported and continues to support a great number of these in Camrose – truly too numerous to mention." Burgar Funeral Home invests in each of its employees through formal training and mentoring. "At Burgar Funeral Home it is truly a team atmosphere where each employee has the opportunity to contribute to its operations," said Kambeitz. Burgar Funeral Home was one of six nominees for the Small Business of the Year award, along with Bra Necessities, Directions for Wellness Incorporated, Fox TaeKwon-Do, Tish's Fashions, and Universal Bottle Depot.

Bra Necessities was started when owner Kim Turre, having an entrepreneurial spirit, determined through market research that there was a gap in the market place that she could fill. The focus on customer service has resulted in a large number of repeat customers and business from referrals. Turre has been involved with the Chamber and is now on the City Center Camrose board. She also serves as a member of the Rural Alberta Business Centre advisory committee. Directions for Wellness, owned by Wayne and Sherri Di Lallo, assists unemployed Albertans who are experiencing difficulties in securing or maintaining employment in obtaining the services they need to move

forward with increased self sufficiency and improved quality of life. Fox TaeKwon-Do is owned and operated by Glen Fox, who teaches courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirit, which helps students overcome adversity. "Fox TaeKwon-Do promotes self defence, not fighting," said Kambeitz. Master Fox is a former world champion and a former Team Canada coach for the world championships. In 2005 he was inducted to the U.S. Martial Arts Hall of Fame. Tish's Fashions has one of the largest selections of dresses for all occasions. Owner Tish Olsen is a strong supporter in and out of the community, and was a supporter of the skateboard park. Universal Bottle Depot, has operated in Camrose for the last 26 years. Owner Grace Torpe and her team spend countless hours sorting used bottles, cans and milk jugs into bags and boxes. "Customers have used them to donate their recyclables to upwards of 35 different charitable organizations," said Kambeitz. The Camrose Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year award is presented annually to an independently owned and operated business with 25 or less employees. Guidelines used by the small business week committee in the selection of a winner include significant business achievement within the last three years, sustained financial performance, involvement in business and/or professional associations and community activities, and demonstrated a high level of customer service excellence.

He has a passion for bringing beautiful music to the masses, and for keeping his audiences on the edge of their seats. Robert’s particular fondness for the Francophone music of his upbringing commanded the full attention of our choir, with pronunciation being a large focus for much of the weekend. He remained unruffled throughout, however, and was truly a joy to work with thus far. His humourous remarks, anecdotes, and careful explanation/ interpretation of the music was

uplifting and very motivating, even after standing for hours at a time. Not only did we have an outstanding conductor, the openness and warmth of our fellow choristers also contributed immensely to the positive atmosphere.

Explore the country life Earl Carman Hellekson

By Murray Green

Imagine endless possibilities by owning your own land. Enjoy country living with this ranch style 1,380 square foot bungalow on 160 acres of farm land north of Ohaton. You'll be impressed with the spacious floor plan, the large covered deck and the huge machine shop/quonset, with a workbench area for the handyman. Only 12 miles from Camrose and less than a mile off pavement from Highway 26, this farm or acreage is ideal for a family that is looking for space for cattle or horses. The shaded deck side entry leads to a large country kitchen with plenty of countertops, storage cabinets and a walk-in pantry. It connects to a generous dining area. The attractive living room offers a comfortable space for your family and friends to relax or watch television. The roomy master bedroom has extra closet space for two. Two other good sized bedrooms, two bathrooms and linen closet space are also on the main level. A main floor laundry with extra storage space is also on the first level. The undeveloped basement has potential for a large family or games room, a bedroom, a bathroom, a laundry area and storage space.

The quonset is a great place to store your vehicles, or would serve as a repair shop for the mechanic in the family. There are corrals and pens that haven't been used for a few years and several other outbuildings on the property. The majority of the land is in pasture and hay. Children would attend the Bawlf School. Included with the purchase are the washer, dryer, fridge and stove. The house shingles were replaced four years ago. A drilled well supplies the water source. This farm land and home are attractively priced to sell at $429,000. It must be seen to be appreciated.

Earl Carman Hellekson, son of Clarence and Violet Hellekson, was born February 5, 1943, and passed away on October 18, 2013 at St. Mary’s Hospital in Camrose, AB at the age of 70 years. Earl was born at home in Holden, AB and lived with his parents on the family farm until they moved to Camrose. Earl attended school at Palmer Earling and then at Ryley, AB. After moving to Camrose, he worked at Miller Electric. A short time later, he met and married Bonniemay Logan on February 11, 1965.  On April 11, 1966, Earl and Bonnie moved back to the farm, previously owned by Harry Johnson in the Holden area. They operated a mixed farming operation where they raised three children. On June 7, 2012 Earl and Bonnie retired to Camrose where they resided until his passing. Sharing his memories are his family: wife Bonnie; son Brian (Cheryl) and their children Rebecca and Cole; daughter Bonnie Jane (Darcy) and their son Matthew Tranmer; son Brent (Elissa) and their children Waycee and Zachary; father Clarence (97 years old); brother Allan (Lorraine); sister Vivian (Dave) Christenson; and many other loving family members.  Earl also had a very special family from the Philippines, Michael, Alta, Althea and Marcus Gaucuson, with whom he shared his love. Earl is predeceased by his grandparents Alex and Olina Hellekson and Alfred and Annie Bratrud; loving mother Violet Hellekson; in-laws Frank and Hilda Logan; sister-in-law Majorie Anderson; and nephew Robert Logan. Earl was a warrior and truly believed that God was constantly at work in his life and in yours. “We are pressed on every side by troubles, but not crushed and broken.  We are perplexed because we don’t know why things happen as they do but we don’t give up and quit. We are hunted down, but God never abandons us. We get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going. These bodies of ours are constantly facing death just as Jesus did; so it is clear to all that it is only the living Christ within us who keeps us safe.” – II Corinthians 4:8-10 (LB) A funeral service was held on Wednesday, October 23, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. from Zion Lutheran Church in Holden, AB with Rev. Bill Harder officiating. Interment followed in Zion Lutheran Church Cemetery.    Memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to St. Mary’s Hospital Palliative Care.

Vikings record back-to-back shut outs By Murray Green

The Augustana Vikings' goalies don't mind being called stingy. The hockey team recorded two straight shut outs in Fort McMurray when they earned 4-0 and 3-0 victories against the Keyano Huskies on Oct. 18 and 19 in Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference action. "It was the first time in my three years here that we were able to have back-toback shut outs. Andy had more shots, harder shots than I did," said goalie Joel Danyluk. "We played at different rinks and that made a difference. Andy had more shots in the smaller rink. We moved to the larger rink on Saturday and that suited our team better, because we could

stretch out our offence. The bigger ice surface allows us to really take over the game." Andy Williams stole the show in the first meeting by stopping all 37 shots he faced in the Augustana net. Keyano carried the play at times, but Williams came up big when he had to. "We have had times were we struggled defensively, so it was good to see the whole system come together in two straight games," said Joel. "Our team eliminated their changes in front of our net and that really helps the goalies. At this level we have to make the first save." Craig Cornelsen led the offence with two goals. Adam Johnson garnered a goal and an assist and Scott Aucoin

picked up three assists in a strong supporting role. Brad Bourke added the other tally from the defence to round out the scoring. The Vikings had 27 shots on the Huskies' cage. Augustana played a better all-around game in the second match despite a scoreless opening period. "They were outshooting us 5-4 and then we had 25 straight shots and finally scored. That's a hard game for a goalie to stay focused in. I had to be sharp because if I let one in, then the game goes the other way in a hurry," said Joel. "You don't want to let a team like that hang in there. It's important not to let the first goal in." Boyd Wakelin notched his first of the season to get

the offence started. Kenny Bradley and Aucoin added insurance markers in the third period. Goalie Joel earned a shut out by turning away all 22 shots fired in his direction. The Vikings had 36 shots on the Keyano net. "I focus on trying to have two shut out periods in every game. That should give your team an opportunity to win. It should be about 95 per cent chance of winning then. It hasn't gone that way for me this year," said Joel, who know the odds would have to change in his favour. "Against red Deer I had two shut out periods and we lost 2-1 and we tied SAIT and I had two shut out periods. I've had seven shut out periods out of nine, but only

have a 1-1-1 record to show for it." Third string goalie Chase Martin has more wins than Joel. "It is a good friendly competition," said Joel. "If would have been really frustrating if we hadn't of won that game. It was a happy bus ride home with four points. Now we have to make our way up the standings because we are still in fourth place. It is going to come down to the last weekend in March." Augustana's next home game is on Oct. 30 when the NAIT Ooks are in Camrose for a 7:30 p.m. start in the EnCana Arena. The next night the same two clubs play in Edmonton.

Elmer Royce Bruce Mr. Elmer Bruce of Bawlf, AB passed away on Sunday, October 20, 2013 at the age of 78 years. Elmer Royce Bruce was born on November 7, 1934 on the homestead in Palmer Earling District near Bawlf. He was the third child of six children – Marvin, Eleanor, Roger, Merlin and Janet – born to John and Sophia Bruce. Elmer and Eleanor were the janitors at Likeness School where they went from Grade 1 to 9. He attended high school in Ryley and Holden until he decided to start working in early 1952.  Coal mining and the service rigs were some of his earliest jobs.  Eventually, he started his career at Stelco, where he worked for the next 35 and a half years.  He purchased the farm in 1962 and married Diane Bolding on December 14, 1963. After their wedding, they moved to Lodgepole, where Elmer worked on the service rigs. They decided to come back to their farm where they resided until his death.  In 1965, they welcomed their first child, Charlene. Three years later, Dean was born. In 1971, Elaine arrived and, in 1978, Carolyn came along. All four of his children are happily married: Charlene and Brent King – 1990, Dean and Cecily Bruce – 1993, Elaine and Derrick Nixon – 2005, Carolyn and Chas Waitt – 2005. Elmer and Diane have seven beautiful grandchildren: Brandon, Adam, Karsten, Savea, Mason, Zoe and Nolan. Elmer enjoyed his grandchildren immensely by supporting all of their endeavors.  Elmer loved card games, floor curling, Hockey Night in Canada and visiting. Elmer loved Diane immensely and they were to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary this December.  He was her support over this last year after her surgery for breast cancer. Elmer was a longstanding member of the Skudesness Lutheran Church. In August of this year, he was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor.  Elmer fought hard but succumbed on October 20, 2013.

Council receives final update on Tour of Alberta By Dan Jensen

Todd Markowsky is still basking in the glow of the successful Tour of Alberta. "I have received numerous accolades and comments from people that I generously spread out to the people who were involved in this, the City being one of them and the residents of Camrose who really stepped up," said the Tour of Alberta Camrose organizing committee chair in a final briefing for Camrose City council Oct. 7. "We had over 300 volunteers working that day (Sept. 4) to make that event happen, just to make the roads safe and clear." Markowsky said the financial and physical support provided by the City of Camrose (services from public works the police department and fire department) was very much appreciated.

"Thank you very much all of you for acknowledging this event that was somewhat new to the community. The feedback from the Alberta Peloton Association regarding Camrose's involvement was incredibly positive." Markowsky said the Tour of Alberta participants felt incredibly safe. "The circuit was wellcontrolled. I know that there were some situations in other places where it didn't work quite as well as it did here. We should be commended for the job that was done with regards to that." Markowsky feels positive about the possibility of Camrose hosting Tour of Alberta events in the future. "As people saw what the event entailed it quickly became very popular," said

Markowsky. "There are a lot of communities talking about opportunities for themselves, too, but those of us (from Camrose) who were at the final were really pushing hard for future involvement for the city." Markowsky's comments were good news for Mayor Marshall Chalmers. "I know there are lots of communities which, based on what they saw, want to get in," said the mayor. "I think it was great for the community." Councillor Ma x Lindstrand said the City of Camrose received incredible promotion from the Tour's ad spots and Tourism Alberta. "I thought it was wonderful in terms of promotion. We couldn't have spent our money in a better way in terms of promotion."

Camrose mayor Marshall Chalmers accepts a framed photo of the Tour of Alberta paleton in Camrose Sept. 4. Markowsky told City council has received many positive comments on the Tour of Alberta from both spectators and participants, and expressed optimism that Camrose will be able to host another event in the future.

Trojans fight for volleyball playoffs By Murray Green

Women's volleyball Vikings are on a mission By Murray Green

The Augustana Vikings women's volleyball team players are on a mission. Each year the club has made improvements as it works towards landing a playoff spot. Last season the club went 5-15, but showed signs of closing the gap between the teams that make the playoffs and those that don't. "This year we have a lot of returning players back and we only have three new players. We want to make the playoffs and we have a new coaching staff. Our co-coaches are familiar with us because they were our assistant coaches last year," explained setter Ste-

fanie Zahara. "They bring new ideas and have different ways of teaching us. The coaches are motivating and very helpful for us." Coaches Laskosky and Kuchera will be sharing the leadership role on the women's squad. They will receive help from assistant coach Sue Nelson, manager Zac Kuchera, trainer Johanna Mykyte and trainer Shea Desmarais. The Vikings seek the most improvement on their mental game. "We want to work together as a team more and use different strategies against different teams," said Stefanie. "Last year, we got really down on ourselves

if we started to lose and couldn't get ourselves back up. We need to be motivating towards each other and help someone else out if they are having a rough time." Stefanie is one of the captains on this year's squad. "It's a lot of responsibility. You have to encourage everyone on the court and make sure everyone is on the same basis," she added. "If anyone has any issues they come to us and we figure it out as captains. I really want to encourage my teammates because we are close to being a good team." Augustana placed sixth out of 12 teams in a preseason tournament in Red Deer, which was positive as

the team enters regular season play. "It was a lot better than last year and being in the middle of the pack is really good right now," Stefanie said. "We can go up from there. We saw teams from the league that we will be playing. If we stay in the middle of the pack then we are not to far off from a playoff position. We were close last year. If we take some of those close losses and turn them into wins, we will be better. That is important. We need to learn to change the close losses into wins this season. That's our major goal and you need to be mentally strong to win those." Continued on page 32

The Camrose Composite High School senior girls' volleyball team is striving to improve as players prepare for the local tournament Nov. 1 and 2. Although the team lost to CACHS in three straight games (25-23, 25-17 and 25-13), the Trojans are working hard to improve the 3-5 record in league play. "We can still play well in time for zones and provincials," said libero Malinka Voytechek. "We need to work on team work and communication. Not getting to where we should be is a lack of communication. We need to be more vocal and know where the other player is going to be." As the season progresses and the local tournament nears, Malinka believes the team will be ready. "We have time to sort things out and improve. We need to make sure our passes are there most of the time to make a good play. In practices we are working on our passes mostly." The Trojans volleyball team travels to Lacombe for a match tonight (Oct. 29). "I think the team has progressed a lot this year. Our team is getting there. We have a young team, so it is taking a bit longer," said the Grade 11 student. "We will be a stronger team next year because our younger players are playing more." Malnka said the team is working hard because it wants to win. The team will be tested by several good teams at the CCHS tournament this weekend.

Ford Ecoboost Fuel efficiency and performance. That's the Ecoboost advantage! Ford has been inviting consumers throughout the world to look at their EcoBoost engines since they were introduced in 2009. The idea of a smaller displac ement tu rbo charged engine has most definitely caught on, because on September 17, 2013 Ford

announced that they had just built the two millionth Ecoboost engine for a 2014 Escape. For the 2014 model year Ford will offer five EcoBoost engines in eight different models. "One in five Ford vehicles currently are

powered by EcoBoost, and with more and more consumers choosing the Ecoboost power train," said Lamb Ford sales manager Brett Read. The most impressive achievement for EcoBoost has come in its embrace by those ultimate power mongers: pickup-truck buyers. After a thorough promotional test- dr ive prog ram to intro duce the Ecoboost to its base of hard-core F-150 customers and competitive truck owners, Ford introduced an EcoBoost 3.5-liter,

six-cylinder option — along with another six-cylinder engine — on its iconic pickup line for the 2011 model year. Ford customers had gone a couple of years without any six-cylinder option for F-150. Almost overnight, EcoBoost became the No. 1 retail-sales power train for the F-150, rising to about 40 percent of overall sales by last spring and nudging that take rate up to 43 percent of F-150 retail sales in May. Ninety per cent of all Escapes are powered

by the Ecoboost engine, either the 1.6L or the 2.0L versions. Again somewhat of a risk as the Escape entered its re-design for 2013 as Canada’s best selling small SUV by a fair margin. "We are asking asking consumers to try the Ecoboost, and compare it to conventional engines for power and fuel economy," said Read. "Throughout the month of November we invite everyone to come stop by and try the Ecoboost technology and maybe ‘Swap Your Ride.’"

Try out the new Ford vehicles with Ecoboost by visiting Lamb Ford Sales on Highway 13 East, Camrose Phone 780-672-24111 and ask for one of the friendly sales professionals.

Special Olympics garners award By Murray Green

The affiliate management committee of Special Olympics Camrose was presented with the prestigious Motor Dealers' Association of Alberta Community Leadership Award and received $1,000 (from Special Olympics Alberta) along with the trophy. "Special Olympics was extremely honoured to receive this award," said chair Carol Wideman. "Special Olympics Camrose promotes participation, sportsmanship and fun for all athletes." The Motor Dealers' Association said Camrose has made an amazing resurgence over the past two years. "Behind a solid leadership team, they have revitalized their committee ensuring their volunteers are engaged and empowered, while putting their athletes first in decision making. They have demonstrated strong community engagement working with the local university, hockey team and law enforcement. They continue to grow their programs, ensuring the needs of current and potential athletes are met. The number of athletes has grown from 68 to 78 and have increased volunteers from 10 to 37. Special Olympics in Camrose has become a staple in the community because of the quality of their program and the reputation they have built. They have had an amazing year and things are only looking up." Through sport, the local Special Olympics organization is committed to enriching the lives of Albertans with an intellectual disability. "Special Olympics is more than an event. It delivers year round world-class sport programs daily to people with a wide range of interests," said Carol. "This money will be gratefully used in our local sports programs. We believe that people with intellectual disabilities can and will succeed when given the opportunity. We are leveling the playing field." Special Olympics Camrose is one of 34 affiliates in Alberta. The local program offers basketball, swimming, bowling and softball programs to more than 80 athletes now in the Camrose and surrounding area. There are currently more than 40 coaches and volunteers. Eight Camrose athletes will be participating in the national Special Olympics event next July in Vancouver, B.C.

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

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

Steer Clear of Abbreviations

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

Be Honest

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

State Your Price

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

Be Accessible

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

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

AMA honours Dr. Smith By Dan Jensen

The Alberta Medical Association (AMA) has honoured retired Camrose physician Dr. Suna A. Smith with a Medal for Distinguished Service. One of the two highest honours bestowed by the AMA (along with the AMA Medal of Honour), the Medal for Distinguished Service is given to physicians who have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to their communities and passion for their work. "Dr. Smith has made outstanding contributions to the medical profession and to the people of Alberta and, in the process, has raised the standards of medical practice for our province," said Shannon Rupnarain, director, public affairs, Alberta Medical Association. Dr. Smith worked for almost four decades to enhance rural services and supports to improve the lives of Albertans suffering with mental health issues, and, in the process, increased community understanding and compassion. As the medical director and consultant psychiatrist for Rosehaven Care Centre in Camrose, she developed an innovative adult day program for patients with dementia. Her work on elder abuse informed and guided policy makers across Canada. Dr. Smith developed the Department of Psychiatry at St. Mary’s Hospital in Camrose – the first rural psychiatric unit in the province – and spent 17 years teaching in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Alberta.

Alcohol and drug task force merges with new community group After over a decade, the Camrose and Area Alcohol and Drug Task Force is retiring its name to join forces with CAYRAN – the Camrose and Area Youth Risk Awareness Network. “Overlapping membership, a similar vision, and a similar approach to prevention all indicated that a merge of sorts was the best course of action,” notes CAYRAN cochair and (former) task force member Lucy Ernst, who is a health promotion facilitator with Alberta Health Services. CAYRAN’s scope is slightly broader and its membership slightly more encompassing, so it made sense for the task force to move over to CAYRAN, rather than the other way around. Established in the early 2000s, the task force gained momentum and achieved significant success during the crystal meth crisis of the mid-2000s. Then called the Battle River Drug Task Force, the group produced a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary manual that included a role for everyone in a community-based response to crystal meth. Since then, the task force has hosted several art competitions, theatre productions and youth galas and most recently produced a series of “factoid cards” to support a campaign addressing alcohol use in particular – not just by youth but by adults as well. The cards included information on teen drinking obtained through research conducted last fall with an Augustana Community Service Learning student. Even though brain development science and current drinking laws confirm that youth under the age of eighteen should avoid alcohol altogether, task force members were heartened to learn that, on the whole, Camrose teens don’t drink nearly as much or as often as we – and they – might think. As reflected in new legislation reducing the “legal limit” from .08 to .05, moderation remains the message for everyone over the age of eighteen. CAYRAN will continue the message of moderation. Formed in October of 2012 to replace the former PARTY Program (which offered a specific approach to harm reduction), the CAYRAN vision of building risk management skills among area youth will use a peer leadership model to empower youth to make informed, positive choices when it comes to engaging in risky behaviour. As we now know, engaging in risky behaviour is a “natural” part of growing up, embedded into the teen-age stage of human brain development. It’s just that some risks are healthier than others, as long as they are pursued with knowledge, information and care. Other risks are simply dangerous, with no positive upside to speak of. Such is the CAYRAN approach to understanding risk and reducing injury. Watch for more news about specific CAYRAN initiatives in the months ahead. Priority issues are likely to include traffic safety (distracted driving, impaired driving, speeding, use of seatbelts), bike safety, alcohol awareness, suicide prevention and fire prevention. Finally, when it comes to risk, what holds true for youth applies equally to adults. CAYRAN members challenge all adults to check their own risky behaviour and make sure they are offering safer, healthier examples for Camrose teens. One thing last fall’s research told us is that our youth are watching us, learning from us and still consider their parents to be their primary role models.

Workshops to help residents manage chronic disease Local residents living with chronic disease have an opportunity to join a free Alberta Health Services (AHS) program designed to help them take control of their health and improve their quality of life. Better Choices, Better Health is a series of six workshops designed to support Albertans living with ongoing health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, high blood

pressure, obesity, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, Crohn’s disease, colitis, Celiac disease and mental health concerns. The Better Choices, Better Health workshop sessions are led by trained volunteers, many of whom live with a chronic disease. This approach ensures an understanding of the challenges participants face and provides a supportive and welcoming environment. Because those living

with chronic conditions often face the same day-to-day challenges, Better Choices, Better Health focuses on teaching tools and techniques common to all chronic conditions rather than any one specific disease or condition. Topics include: Solving problems and setting goals. Handling pain and fatigue. Managing medication.

Dealing with difficult emotions. Eating healthy and increasing activity. Communicating with health care providers. Better Choices, Better Health workshop sessions will be held from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Mondays from Nov. 4 to Dec. 16 at the MSK Room in the Smith Clinic, 6601 48 Ave. #1. There is no workshop on Remembrance Day, Nov.

11. For more information, or to register, please call 1-877-314-6997. Alberta Health Services is the provincial health authority responsible for planning and delivering health supports and services for more than 3.9 million adults and children living in Alberta. Its mission is to provide a patient-focused, quality health system that is accessible and sustainable for all Albertans.

Three Kodiaks try out for Team Canada West By Murray Green

When higher levels of hockey search for quality players, they keep the Camrose Kodiaks in mind. Three players, Tanner MacMaster, Josh Smith and Scott Feser all left for Calgary on Oct. 26 to attend camp to represent Western Canada in the World Junior A Challenge. Players who make the squad fly to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia on Wednesday for the international tournament beginning Nov. 4. "It's a good opportunity for us to get some international experience. It's another challenge for us and it will be a good experience," said Scott before the tryouts. "The team is picked on Wednesday and the team leaves for Nova Scotia the day after." Spruce Grove Saints head coach and general manager Jason McKee has been named head coach of Canada West with Trent Cassan and Ryan Smith as assistant coaches. "I was pretty excited to be invited to camp. I want to do my best to make the club, so I can play in Nova Scotia. I haven't played international hockey before. I want to play against a higher level of competition from around the world," explained Scott. "I've watched it on TV and World Juniors and to be able to play against other countries would be a great experience." Canada West is in a division with Czech Republic and Switzerland. The other group features Canada East, Russia and the United States. "There will be different styles and strengths. Adjusting to the other country's games will be a different challenge," said Scott. The Kodiaks outplayed both the Bonnyville Pontiacs and the Fort McMurray Oil Barons, but came home from the road trip without points in Alberta Junior Hockey league action on Oct. 18 and 19. Camrose dropped a 4-1 decision in Bonnyville, despite having the edge on shots. It was 2-0 before Connor Mailey scored in the second period to close the gap.

However, the Pontiacs scored two goals within 15 seconds in the third to deflate the Kodiaks. Matt Zentner made 19 of 23 saves before giving way to Devin McDonald, who stopped all of the five shots he faced. "We have to keep working hard and focus on the details. It all starts with practice," said Scott. "We have outplayed other teams, but breakdowns have cost us and we need to prevent those mistakes throughout the game." In Fort McMurray, the home team again built up a 2-0 lead prior to the Kodiaks' getting on the scoresheet. This time, Nelson Gadoury netted a shorthanded marker to cut the Oil Barons lead. Fort McMurray scored in the third and then the Kodiaks poured on the pressure. Gadoury scored again to pull within one, but they had to settle for a 3-2 loss. McDonald turned away 22 of the 25 shots fired in his direction in the Camrose net. The Kodiaks out shot their opponent 35-25. "If we focus on details defensively, then it also helps us create more offence. The timing of the goals against hurts us mentally and we have to focus on both preventing goals and scoring more," said Scott. "Every team in the league has ups and downs. It might be a good time to go through this now, rather than at the end of the season. If we can get through this now and come together as a team, we will be better off for it." The Kodiaks' Halloween Howl is on Tuesday, Oct. 29 against the Brooks Bandits. Come to the game dressed in a costume for a chance at prizes. The first whistle blows at 7 p.m. The fans have been asked to scare the Kodiaks into winning at home against the first place Bandits. Camrose heads out on the road for three straight games in November. The Kodiaks play in Grande Prairie on Nov. 1, Whitecourt on Nov. 2 and in Olds on Nov. 5.
