This year, Sahakarini welcomes special guest Elly Nankunda to Camrose to talk about the work of the Iryango Mutual Benefit Society: a group of 106 widows and one widower who have come together to start crops, raise goats, and support one another in building a bright future for their community. Kingman's own John Pattison (left) introduced Sahakarini to the Iryango group in 2010. This is just one of the dozens of global partnerships Sahakarini has treasured over their 32 years in Camrose. Currently working with partners in Uganda, India and Guatemala, Sahakarini is your local non-profit whose work alines with the United Nation's 8 Millenium Development Goals. The dinner's annual auction of Gordon Shieck's sandals reminds us that even far away in Camrose, when we take the time to "walk a mile in someone else's shoes", we can find a way to learn, give, and make a difference.

Cookie Walk November 19

By Amanda Dyer Camrose Kinette Club

Legion flag raised

Camrose Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion poppy fund chairman Gerry Enger, left, Mayor Marshall Chalmers and Legion president Bill Hart raised the Lest We Forget flag to remind residents that Oct. 27 marked the opening of the poppy selling campaign. Remembrance Day will be celebrated on Nov. 11 at the Camrose Regional Exhibition. Poppy funds that are raised go towards community groups and projects.

Habitat to build two more homes in 2012 By Dan Jensen

Habitat for Humanity Camrose is going to be busy over the next two years. Habitat for Humanity Camrose executive director Cody McCarroll told City council Oct. 24 that Habitat has purchased a fourplex lot in Duggan Park on which it plans to build two homes in 2012 and two more in 2013. Habitat for Humanity Camrose built two homes this past summer, bringing the total num-

ber of homes it has built since its founding in 2006 to 18. Habitat for Humanity Camrose is able to build new homes with the mortgage payments it receives from partner families and profits that come from sales at ReStore, a retail outlet built in 2006. "We're part of an international organization," explained McCarroll. "In 2010, 75,000 families were helped worldwide." McCarroll is confident that Habitat for Humanity will be

able to retain its self-governing status with Habitat for Humanity Canada, something that was in question after the national organization released a 2 012 to 2016 strategic plan that called for the elimination of 75 per cent of stand alone affiliates. He said the letter of support Habitat for Humanity Camrose received from City council this past summer highlighted the fact that the loss of self-governing status would be damaging.

Camrose Ski Club closing in on completion of ski trail project By Dan Jensen

The Camrose Ski Club is targetting June of 2012 for the completion date for its sign project. "We are planning on placing many posts in the next month," said Camrose Ski Club president Gerhard Lotz in a report to City council Oct. 24. The Camrose Ski Club's signage project will provide maps of the trail system at major entry points and junctions, as well as make the trails more navigable through trail name signs and trail length indicators. Trail system usage will be made safer through trail levelof-difficulty and direction of travel signs. The Camrose Ski Club received a CIP Grant of $16,000 for the trail signage project in 2008, and has been supplementing that with its own funds and labour. Along with improving the signs, the Camrose Ski Club is undertaking the first phase of a t rail enhancement project that will modernize the existing trails and bring them up to present day competition standards, make the trails safer for all levels of use, make the trails more accessible for

Gerhard Lotz

general use, and address ongoing drainage issues. The provincial government has provided a grant of $45,000, while the City of Camrose has provided $30,000. "The collapse of one of our bridges required us to make bridges our major project this year," said Lotz. "We removed the collapsed bridge and built a much superior bridge that will stand for a very long time. We also made repairs to three other bridges." Camrose Ski Club agreed this past summer to make the cross country ski trails south of the ski trestle in Stoney Creek Park available as an off-leash area for dogs.

"It worked fairly well and there were no major incidents," said Lotz. "More signs would be helpful because people think that the whole area is off-leash." Camrose Ski Club offers cross country skiing, biathlon, luge, snowboarding and running programs to more than 200 members ranging in age from three to 80. It hosted the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association cross country running championships in November, 2009, the Western Canadian Biathlon Championships in February, 2011, and a F ive Peaks Adventure Running Series race in July, 2011. Upcoming events include the Ole Uffda Loppett in January, 2012, the Biathlon Alberta Championships in March, 2012, and the Ole's Spring Runoff in March, 2012. "We are probably the oldest ski club in Canada," explained Lotz. Camrose Ski Club's request that the annual City of Camrose grant of $13,000 remain intact a nd that the City maintain its capital allocation of $15,000 for the ski trail enhancement project was deferred by City council to 2012 budget deliberations.

"It seems to be doing the trick." McCarroll said Habitat for Humanity Camrose could do more if it was able to channel more money into advertising and marketing. He noted that there are more families that can use Habitat homes but the message is just not getting out. "It (Habitat for Humanity housing) is an unbelievable deal," he said.

The Camrose Kinette Club has the ovens fired up and are preparing its annual Cookie Walk. The sweet event will be held Nov. 19 at the Duggan Mall Farmers' Market starting promptly at 9 a.m. “For some, this is an opportunity to have their Christmas baking done early, if you can resist eating it,” said co-chair Holly McLennan. The cookies are all homemade by local Kinette members and feature Christmas flair. “And there’s a t on of variety, you name it, I bet someone’s baked it,” commented co-chair Chris Olson. The proceeds from the Cookie Walk assist in the Silent Santa campaign, which in turn gives gifts to those in need over the holidays. Both members suggest arriving early to avoid disappointment in the Christmas cookie selection. Containers will sell for $15. This year, along with hundreds of Christmas cookies, the group is also showcasing its second-ever cook book. “The cook book is in recognition of the 50 plus years we’ve been serving the community. It’s a way to thank everyone who has supported us over the years. The cook book boasts everyday recipes from main course meals to desserts and everything else inbetween,” said Kinette member Amanda Dyer. The books are spiral bound and are selling for $10 at the sale. For more information on becoming a Kinette member please call Amanda Dyer at 780679-2439.

Acting on information regarding a marihuana grow in operation on an acreage in the Lougheed area, RCMP raided the property in the early afternoon. As a re sult, RCMP arrested three adults, two males and one female, on the same property as the grow operation. One hundred and twenty marihuana plants were seized along with grow equipment, as well as numerous weapons, including a semi-automatic hand gun.

Augustana Dean hopes for 2013 completion of CPAC By Dan Jensen

The long-awaited construction of a C amrose Performing Arts Centre is getting closer by the day. Augustana dean Dr. Allen Berger told members of the Rotary Club of Camrose last week that he is beginning to feel fairly confident of a CPAC groundbreaking next spring and a grand opening or ribboncutting ceremony as early as the fall of 2013. "The City and University have reached an agreement on all the major principles related to an operating and governance agreement for the performing arts centre," said Berger, "and I am optimistic that we will have that signed and sealed very soon." While the performing arts centre has been one of the biggest issues for Augustana and the City of Camrose, the university has also started to work on the development of an enrollment plan. "We want to grow Augustana a l ittle bit, increase the enrollment initially from the current 1,000 students to somewhere around 1,200," said Berger. "We need to figure out how to get there. We need to figure out exactly what the right targets are and we need to have a long term plan." Dr. Berger told Rotary that one of the things that makes the Augustana campus distinctive is the fact that it cares

Dean Allen Berger

about educating the whole person, not just the intellect. "We care as much about students' social development and their spiritual development as we care about their intellectual development," he said. "We also recognize that part of our role is n ot just to prepare students for jobs, but also to prepare them for careers in a world where the Department of Labour in the United States and the Conference Board of Canada says students will likely have half a d ozen or more careers over their lifetimes. That is not different jobs, that is different careers. That is jobs that don't even exist yet that we can't even anticipate. How do we prepare students for that kind of world? Well surely it is not by just thinking about their first job. It involves thinking about lifelong learning and a

skillset that will stand them in good stead and is t ransferable to any professional endeavour." Berger said he encourages students at the beginning of each school year to record what they think, speak boldly and listen deeply to the perspectives of others. "I ask them as new members of an academic community to change us, not just to be a c onsumer of education at Augustana – someone who shows up and occupies a sea t in a classroom – but instead to make a difference, to make us miss them when they graduate." Berger said the liberal arts education that Augustana provides should, at its core, introduce doubt into the minds of students and question those things that they always assumed were true and took for granted. "Our goal should be to stimulate students' imaginations, to incite their doubt, to cultivate their independent thinking, to help them find their own voice, and if we do our jobs well, they will certainly learn from what the experts in all the various disciplines think, but they will also learn that the experts are sometimes wrong. They will learn that the experts don't always agree with one another and they will come to understand that the experts have points of view that are shaped

by biases, by prejudices, by the limitations of their own backgrounds, by the assumptions of their own disciplines. They will learn that all of the disciplines in the academy are angles of vision, lenses to help them see the world, and they will begin to appreciate the variety of lenses that need to be applied if we are to understand the world." Berger said it is not Augustana's goal to pour knowledge into students' heads as if they were simply receptacles or containers that need to be filled with truth. "We don't expect them to be sponges, passively soaking up knowledge. Our hope is that they will become partners with us in creating knowledge." Berger feels a l iberal arts education is t he best kind of education for a f uture career because it is not focused narrowly on job training. "Narrow training for a job no longer suffices," he said. "What employers are looking for instead are transferable skills. Employers want in their young employees an ability to communicate effectively both in writing and orally, an ability to manage complex information, an ability to think critically and problem solve. My guess is many of you as business men and women are looking for young people who have exactly that skill set."

Berger said he is a f irm believer in place-based education. "We need to take advantage, at Augustana, of the place where we are: Camrose. Camrose is t he laboratory where our students can learn habits of engagement and the skills that are necessary to succeed in the community and in its organizations. As they develop these skills, these habits, these values in this place, they will be able to take those skills, values and habits to any place where they eventually reside." Berger said the Augustana faculty sends more students away on meaningful international study trips than any other faculty in the University of Alberta. "I was recently reading a Canadian magazine about the University of Calgary, which was bragging that it sends 12.5 per cent of its graduates on meaningful international experiences, and how the University of Calgary has a higher percentage than the University of Alberta. Well, they may have a higher percentage than the University of Alberta overall but at Augustana well over 20 per cent of our students are studying overseas as part of their undergraduate preparation. Given all the involvements of Rotary overseas, I know this is an audience that appreciates the value of that."

Safety with holiday lights Perhaps no holiday tradition is more visible than decorative lights. Whether on the house or on the tree in the front picture window, holiday lights help create a festive mood for all. While aesthetically appealing, holiday lighting displays can also be quite dangerous. Older lights or poorly planned lighting projects can quickly turn tragic. However, this much beloved holiday tradition does not have to cease and desist. Instead, some simple safety precautions are all it takes to ensure this year's lighting display is both stunning and safe. - Make sure exterior lights are designed for outdoor use. Not all lights can handle the elements, so t hose old Christmas tree lights might not be a ble to enjoy a se cond life as part of a home's exterior lighting decor. - Plug lights directly into the electrical sockets rather than relying heavily on extension cords. Employ surge protector strips if there are not enough outlets available. Before plugging anything in, consult the fuse box to determine how much each circuit can safely handle. - Don't use damaged lighting sets, including those with frayed strings, unstable connections, exposed wires, or broken or cracked sockets. - Make sure all external lights are securely attached. Wind can do significant damage to bulbs, which can lead to additional safety risks. As a p recau-

tion, attach all lights firmly to walls or anything else that will not blow away when a stiff wind arrives. - Inside the home, be extra careful when using an artificial Christmas tree. Electric lights should never be used on a metallic tree. - Routinely check all cords' temperatures. If a cord feels too hot, unplug it and find a replacement. - Don't leave the lights on when no adults are home. If the home is e mpty or if just kids are home, make sure the lights are off. Avoid using timers that automatically turn the lights on, as it's possible they will turn on when no one is home. Unplug all cords when going away for the holidays just to be safe. - Make sure all cords are visible. Don't bury cords underneath rugs or floor mats to avoid personal injuries. - Hanging lights shouldn't be a solo project. Whether hanging lights inside or outside, never do so alone. A stiff wind might come along and blow the ladder away or an unstable ladder might lead to a fall. Accidents happen when hanging lights indoors as well, so make sure to have an adult partner on hand to avoid injury. - Make sure kids cannot reach lighting displays. Kids often adore holiday lighting displays and their natural curiosity is to reach for lights. Avoid potential accidents by keeping lights well beyond the reach of children.

Festive plants There are many flowering plants that attract a lot of attention during the holiday season. But don’t be too quick to throw them away after the celebrations are over because many of them are perennials. The poinsetta is a cla ssic symbol of the holidays and makes for a wonderful gift. Its red and green leaves add a touch of festivity to any environment. With the right care, they can keep their colour for four months. Simply place them in a bright spot away from direct sunlight. The cyclamen blooms as of mid-fall and with the right care, it will keep its flowers until April. Fertilize the plant every 15 days and keep it in a c ool spot, particularly at night. Many people will throw away the plant once its flowers are gone, and that’s too bad. Instead, you can reduce the amount of watering, let the leaves yellow and put the bulbs to rest. In September, repot the plant and you’ll have new blooms for Christmas.

Decorating the home together The festive season will soon be here and now is the time to decorate your home for Christmas. Rather than feel like this is a chore to be done alone, why not involve your family and turn it into a fun activity for everyone! The centrepiece of holiday decorations is, of course, the majestic Christmas tree adorned with beautiful ornaments. Choose plastic rather than glass ornaments to remove any danger of younger children breaking them. If your ornaments are looking a little worn, you can freshen them up with a coat of silver or gold paint, or create new ones with different decorative objects, such as pine cones. Irresistible Christmas ornaments

You can also create some unique Christmas ornaments. Styrofoam balls and glue can be found in art supply stores or in the arts and crafts section of any department store and there are endless ways of decorating them. You can cover the balls with all sorts of different materials: Papier-mâché, fabric, felt, silk paper, metallic sequins, pearls, coloured cardboard discs, etc. Use several different colours and materials if you want to create a colourful effect for your Christmas tree or simply limit yourself to one or two materials with similar colours for a more conservative style. To hang the ornaments on the tree, insert hooks from old ornaments into the styrofoam or use paper clips that have been cut in two. Spiced citrus fruits

Apart from the Christmas tree, other decorations can embellish your home including an illuminated centrepiece trimmed with evergreens, a salt dough garland or paper snowflakes glued to the windows. If you love home perfumes you could create a decorative bowl of spiced citrus fruits. Just stick some whole cloves into a few oranges, clementines, or tangerines.

The staple of holiday decor – the mistletoe – has a deep history Chances are, holiday revelers will find themselves underneath the mistletoe at least once this holiday season. While they might know what to do when that time comes, they might not know the history of that plant above their heads. Especially sacred to Celtic Druids, mistletoe was believed to bestow life and fertility, while also protecting against poison and serving as an aphrodisiac. Mistletoe would later take on a m ore political meaning,

as the ritual of cutting the mistletoe came to symbolize the emasculation of the old King by his successor. Nowadays, mistletoe is typically hung in doorways or entryways from one room to another. This tradition can also trace itself back sev eral centuries to the Middle Ages. During the Middle Ages, branches of mistletoe were hung from ceilings to ward off evil spirits. Throughout Europe, mistletoe was placed over doorways in the house as well as the stables as a means

to preventing the entrance of witches. The tradition of kissing underneath the mistletoe likely stems from the belief that mistletoe bestows fertility and is often associated with the Roman festival of Saturnalia, a period of merrymaking that pre-dated Christmas. In 18th century England, a young lady standing underneath the mistletoe could not refuse to be kissed. Once kissed, the kiss would signify deep romance or eternal friendship.

Brooks to share his ideas at Bailey Theatre

Welcome Home At Sunrise your independence is important to us.

By Dan Jensen

What are the ingredients for a successful downtown? That's a question that will be answered by Roger Brooks, president and CEO of Destination Marketing, at the Bailey Theatre, Camrose, this Thursday. City Center Camrose board president Dan Olofson feels the presentation is a "must attend" for every downtown business or property owner. "To have the opportunity to hear from an expert like Roger Brooks, right in our own community, is a t ruly remarkable offer," said Olofson. "With the insight he has gained from studying over 400 communities in North America, this timely talk will be absolutely invaluable to each, individually and collectively." Topics that will be touched on by Brooks include how to redevelop a d owntown or business revitalization zone, strategies for making downtown a hot spot in the community for both local visitors and tourists, the importance of adequate signage, and the importance of partnerships between municipalities, business owners and property owners to make the downtown more friendly to potential customers. "He clearly has the background, experience and knowledge to allow all of us in business to strategically plan for the years and decades ahead," stated Olofson. The presentation will get underway at 11 a.m. and go until 12. Sponsors are City Center Camrose and the City of Camrose.

Sorenson pleased with introduction of legislation on long gun registry Crowfoot Member of Parliament Kevin Sorenson is pleased the Conservative government has introduced legislation that will scrap the failed and costly long gun registry. “For years, my constituents have constantly and consistently contacted me opposed to the hardship that Bill C-68 caused in Crowfoot and many other federal ridings, particularly in remote and rural parts of Canada," said Sorenson last week. "Fourteen years and $2 billion later, the gun registry has not helped address gun crime in urban nor rural Canada.” Public Safety Minister Vic Toews said by eliminating the wasteful and ineffective long-gun registry the government can focus its efforts on measures that actually tackle crime and make our streets and communities safe. “Our Government will continue to uphold our commitment to effective gun control measures that help keep firearms out of the hands of criminals and off our streets.” Bill C-19, An Act to amend the Criminal Code and the Firearms Act will: • Repeal the requirement to register non-restricted firearms (long-guns); • Provide for the destruction of all records pertaining to the registration of long-guns currently contained in the Canadian Firearms Registry and under the control of the chief firearms officers; and • Maintain controls over restricted and prohibited firearms. Under the proposed reforms, firearms owners will still require a valid firearm licence to purchase or possess firearms. They will also be required to undergo police background checks, pass a f irearms safety training course and comply with firearms safe storage and transportation requirements. I n addition, individuals will continue to be required to register prohibited and restricted firearms, such as handguns. Sorenson said the Conservative government is committed to putting the safety of Canadians first with real action on crime that delivers enhanced protection for communities. "That is why our government is investing in a number of effective measures such as putting more police on our streets, fighting organized crime, introducing mandatory minimum penalties for serious gun crime and combating gun smuggling. Bill C-19 is consistent with our efforts to ensure firearms laws target real criminals and protect the safety of the public. Finally, we will ensure that the data on the existing registry is destroyed to prevent a f uture government from trying to resurrect another one.”

Raising awareness about family violence By Dan Jensen

The Family Violence Response Council will be working with local businesses and organizations during the month of November to increase awareness of the abuse that takes place in homes. "At least one to four children in every classroom in Alberta will see their mother abused. Studies have shown that 70 per cent of children who witness their mothers being abused are also physically abused." Family Violence Response Council representative Darlene Bowal told City council last week that red silhouettes will be placed at prominent locations throughout the city to represent the local citizens enduring domestic violence and send the message to victims that they are not alone. Each silhouette will display the provincial Family Violence Hotline number for those seeking help or more information. "Family Violence Response Council is i n the process of recruiting businesses, agencies and organizations to host silhouettes for one week during the month of November," said Bowal. "Hosts will display one red silhouette outside their place of business and bring it inside

Mayor Marshall Chalmers has proclaimed November as Family Violence and Bullying Awareness Month in Camrose. With him in the photo were: (left to right, front) Loretta Johnson, from the Camrose Women's Shelter, Sheralyn Dobos, from the Family Violence Action Society, (left to right, back) Kristian Wold, pastor at Bethel Lutheran Church, Cassie McCaffrey, from Alberta Children's Services, Darlene Bowal, from the Camrose Women's Shelter, and Constable Matthew Wilton, from Camrose Police Service. The silhouettes pictured on the left and the right will be placed at prominent locations throughout the city to represent the local citizens enduring domestic violence and send the message to victims that they are not alone.

each night. So far, response has been very positive." Bowal noted that Alberta has one of the highest self reported rates of spousal assault of the provinces in Canada. From April 2009 to March 2010 Alberta's domestic violence shelters accommodated 6,169

women and 5,601 children. In the previous year (April 2008 to March 2009) Alberta shelters accommodated 6,156 women and 5,285 children and were unable to accommodate 10,364 women and 6,747 children. "At least one to four children in every classroom in

Alberta will see their mother abused," said Bowal. "Studies have shown that 70 per cent of children who witness their mothers being abused are also physically abused." Brian Vallee, in his book The War on Women, states that it isn't just the lives of the wom-

en and the men in the military and in law enforcement whose lives are at risk. "There is another war – largely overlooked and even more deadly – w ith far more victims killed by hostiles," states Vallee. "But these dead are not labelled heroes, nor are they honoured in the national media or in formal ceremonies. From time to time they may attract a spate of publicity as a result of a high-profile trial or an inquest that will likely conclude that society let them down once again and recommend changes to prevent future deaths, though these recommendations will be mostly ignored. This war is the War on Women." Vallee goes on to state that from the years 2000 to 2006, when 101 Canadian soldiers and police officers were killed, more than 500 women – nearly five times as many – were shot, stabbed, strangled or beaten by the intimate males in their lives. The Family Violence Response Council is a c oordinated group of thirteen community agencies that address all aspects of family violence and abuse, ranging from prevention to intervention and treatment. Its purpose is to collaborate in areas of community awareness and professional development, and ensure a c onsistent and effective approach to family violence in the community.

PEN POINTS by Berdie Fowler

Family violence happens; we need to stop it Family violence is abhorrent. You don’t like to talk about it; I don’t like to talk about it. Yet, we must not turn our backs on the many victims, especially children, who are dangerously trapped; nor can we shrug and ignore the fact that some victims have been silenced forever because they have been killed. Each of us must become fully aware and do our utmost to eliminate the horror of abusive family relationships. Because we don’t like to talk about domestic violence, we, the public, are unaware of the prevalence of it in our society. Did you know that, according to Brian Vallee, writing in his book entitled The War on Women, 101 Canadian soldiers and police officers were killed from 2001 to 2006 while, during the same period, five times more women were killed by intimate males in their lives. Who are the victims and perpetrators? Various studies have found that they could be anyone, male, female, rich, poor, any ethnicity, whoever. However, a 2009 statistical profile of family violence in Canada reported that 83% of spousal violence victims were women; that girls under 18 were four times more likely than boys to be physically and sexually assaulted; that male family members were identified as the accused in family related violence; in 2007, four times more women than men were killed by a current or former spouse. In child, youth and elder homicides, more were committed by fathers and sons than by mothers and daughters. Family violence occurs in other places but it happens right here at home, too. Darlene Bowal, a representative of our local Family Violence Response Council, reports that one in four students in an Alberta classroom will have seen his or her mother abused and most will themselves have been physically abused. How pitiful! A h ome should be a sa fe haven in which a child feels secure and loved. His or her whole life is negatively affected if it is not. This is Family Violence Prevention Week so let each of us do whatever we can to eliminate it. We have a shelter for women and children in Camrose that is funded by municipal and provincial sources as well as volunteer support. Family abuse victims may call 780-672-1035. In Camrose, we also have the Family Violence and Response Council which addresses prevention, intervention and treatment related to women, children and men in abusive family relationships. Phone numbers for those who need help include: – Child Abuse Hotline, 1-800-387-KIDS (5437); – Family Violence Info Phone, 310-1818 (toll free 24/7); – Kids’ Help Phone, 1-800-668-6868. May we, the public, end the fear and suffering of distressing domestic dysfunction by being aware and fully supportive of measures to prevent, intervene and treat!

It appears the next session of Parliament will be more than lively and the outcome could affect all Canadians. I am referring to the bill to abolish the Canadian Wheat Board also known by the acronym CWB. Why will this issue affect all Canadians? It is because not just the CWB but democracy is at stake. The CWB Act says that before any major changes can be made to the structure of the CWB a re ferendum of farmers is required. The Federal Government has thus far refused to have a referendum and instead wants to eliminate the CWB Act thus negating, in its opinion, the need for a p lebiscite or referendum. The CWB held a referendum and the majority of farmers voted to maintain the CWB as at present. The Minister of Agriculture in a speech declared this referendum to be "irrelevant" suggesting that the opinions of thousands of farmers are irrelevant. In a democracy one would suppose that everyone's opinion is relevant since a democracy is defined as "government of the people, by the people and for the people." If the people are ignored what we have is a dictatorship. It is interesting to note that among the issues put forward in the recent 'occupations' is that governments not only support greedy corporations but ignore the wishes of the people. This government's action against the workers at Air Canada shows that no common action, be it by farmers, unions or professional associations, may be considered a v alid contract not subject to potential set-aside by this government. The struggle over the CWB

has been predicted to be "nasty, brutish and short" which means there may be a l ot of hyperbole about this issue in future communications. Be aware that what is at stake is not just the future of the CWB but the future of democracy in Canada. The next group of people to be considered 'irrelevant' could be you if you dare to disagree with a p osition of this government. But what do I know, I'm irrelevant and declared so by a Minister of the crown. Horst Schreiber Ohaton Dear Editor:

I just spent the best Monday night in a long time! Thanks to Jesse Cook and the Bailey Theatre for that. I was so pleased to see a f ull house of people of all ages and backgrounds coming together to enjoy the experience of Jesse Cook’s music. Last night was a testament to the power of the arts. They bring community and joy and awareness of creative spirit. The energy of the crowd was so a mazing that I t hink even Jesse was surprised! I think Camrose is ready for more opportunities like this. At one point Jesse was tuning his guitar and opened the floor for questions. One person yelled “Why Camrose?” and Jesse replied “Why not?” What a great answer...why not? I am not suggesting that large events such as Big Valley Jamboree and such do not have their value, they most certainly do, but many musicians also like to visit more rural communities and perform in more intimate settings. I believe there is a c onnection made between artist and audience in smaller venues that often happens that is difficult in massive concert halls and large outdoor concerts. The Bailey Theatre, Rose City Roots Society and Scalliwags, Home Routes hosts and eventually the Camrose Performing Arts Centre can offer the intimacy that many artists seek. I look forward to watching our cultural climate grow over the next few years and encourage anyone who has the slightest inkling to participate to do so. Gather some friends and buy a ticket to the next show even if it is on a Monday night; it is a great

way to start the week! Well done to the organizers of this and all other cultural events in our fair city. Jane Cherry-Lemire, Camrose Dear Editor:

N ow, it is interesting to note that Quebec is not getting three seats because of population growth like Ontario, Alberta and B.C. They are getting three seats more because of a promise that the Conservatives made to ensure that Quebec is not under represented. That is so interesting to me to hear. Ontario will be getting 15 seats, Alberta 6 seats and B.C will also get 6 se ats. T his will cost taxpayers millions of dollars to complete this process. I do wonder if Canada can afford such a h uge cost? T he economy is n ot that strong and many people across the country are out of work. To me personally, I believe this money could be used in a better way. This move could be put off until another time when the economy is o n a better footing. I also heard in the news that 69% of Canadians plan to work part-time in retirement. Ma ny are because they cannot afford to keep up their lifestyle and totally retire on what they have saved and their pensions. T his trend will only get worse as more and more baby boomers retire. Soon, there will be more people retired than those working. T hat sort of situation is not good since the money will run out to pay all the people who would be retired. No wonder so m any people will be working to make up for the lack of pension that they will be getting. Time will tell how the new seats will affect Canada and how this new trend will affect the Canadian economy. Who knows what will happen in the future? Only time will tell. Lorne Vanderwoude Camrose

Parkland Regional Library develops travelling book display Library patrons will soon be able to borrow from a stack of 26 new books and DVDs on topics of river and ocean ecology. Parkland Regional Library has partnered with the Central Alberta Chapter of Trout Unlimited Canada to develop a n ew travelling book display, which begins touring libraries across central Alberta in November. “Parkland is extremely pleased to collaborate with Trout Unlimited in this way,” says Ron Sheppard, Parkland’s director. “Trout Unlimited approached us with a generous donation this

summer and has since provided expert advice about which materials to purchase. This fall, Parkland has been able to develop, catalogue, and promote the collection throughout our entire system of 50 member libraries.” Any Parkland public library can sign up to host the travelling display, and initial interest has been enthusiastic. The collection has something for all ages, with titles like: • Going Blue: A Teen Guide to Saving Our Oceans, Lakes, Rivers & Wetlands;

• Moby-Duck: The True Story of 28,000 Bath Toys Lost at Sea; • An Entirely Synthetic Fish: How Rainbow Trout Beguiled America and Overran the World. People are concerned with protecting, restoring and better understanding our rivers, oceans, and wetlands. This travelling display gives central Albertans a wealth of resources with a one-stop visit to their library. To find out more, individuals can contact their local library.

Grief workshop helps offer support By Murray Green Although we all face grief differently, everyone needs to go through a p rocess to accept and cope with our losses. Most people are not sure what supports are available or what they do. The Camrose Primary Care Network (PCN) is o ffering a one-day Bereavement and Grief Workshop on Saturday, Nov. 5, which will explain the differences between bereavement, grief and mourning. This workshop is f or people who are coping with grief and loss, as well as for people interested in becoming grief helpers to support people going through a loss. Donna Lynne Erickson (Certified Grief Trainer) and Colette Howery (Registered Nurse with a certificate in grief support) were asked by Alberta Hospice Palliative Care Association to be speakers for a road show. "That prompted us to get together as a team to write and present sessions on facing bereavement and grief. After just two sessions, we had so many requests to come to other areas," said Donna Lynne. "The PCN showed interest because more physicians are dealing with grief issues. We want to teach people to be grief helpers. They (PCN) came to our workshop, liked it and now are sponsoring the Bereavement and Grief Workshop." Participants will learn: the difference between Bereavement, Grief and Mourning; Stages of Grief; Common Symptoms of Grief; Coping with Grief; and How to Access Appropriate Community Resources. "Our whole philosophy is that grief in a natural part of life. We experience many losses in our life and people need to learn how to cope with it," said Donna Lynne. "If we don't walk through the loss, it leads to medication, avoiding it or walking around it instead of through it. Then there are implications such as chronic diseases and mental health issues that can come into play if they are not addressed." Western culture doesn't leave a lot of time for the mourning process. "It is u sually take a c ouple of days off, attend a f uneral and get back t o work. It depends on how close you are to the loss that can determine the length of the mourning period," said Donna Lynne. “PCN physicians and staff have recognized there is an opportunity in the community to develop a program for individuals facing loss in their lives," said Stacey Strilchuk, Camrose PCN executive director. “We are fortunate to have Colette and Donna Lynne to partner with for this workshop, and are so p leased to be able to collaborate with them in a w ay that is meaningful and relevant to people facing bereavement and grief.” This free workshop, being held at the Edgeworth Centre Community Room #1, will run from 9 a .m. to 3:30 p.m. and includes lunch. To register, contact the Camrose PCN at 780-6084927 or visit www.camrosepcn. com.

The Camrose Chamber of Commerce and the Camrose Wildlife and Stewardship Society presented their 2012 funding requests to Camrose City council Oct. 17. The Camrose Chamber of Commerce is asking for $36,000, up from the $34,500 it received for 2011. Chamber spokesperson Tom Chelmick told council that the requested funds will offset the cost of four staff who provide tourism services at the Bill Fowler Centre during the summer months as well as pay for the cost of attending parades with the Mirror Lake Express train. He explained that the funding received from government grants falls $10,772 short of covering payroll costs. The Camrose Visitor Information Centre received the 2011 AMMY award (named in honour of Alberta's official gemstone) for outstanding achievements in enhancing the quality of operations, service, facility exterior and interior. The award is meant to challenge visitor information centres to achieve a high level of excellence, instill a sense of pride in visitor information centre staff, and raise the profile of visitor information centres as must-stop destinations. "We encourage our visitor information staff to provide excellent service to visitors and Camrosians alike by helping them with the information necessary to make their vacations a b etter experience in our community and province," stated a Chamber report. "Our staff also provides information on Camrose and area attractions." The Camrose Visitor Information Centre greeted 3,875 visitors from across Canada and 20 other countries. The centre will be open for more than 2,700 hours in 2012. The Chamber's Mirror Lake Express had its busiest year ever, participating in 33 events, including the Rainmaker Rodeo Parade in St. A lbert, the Ponoka Stampede Parade, the Capital X Parade in Edmonton, and the Canada Day and Canadian Hot Air Balloon celebrations in Camrose. "The train finally turned a profit after several years of startup costs and rebuilding costs," said Chelmick. "All that work for $1,800 may not be financially great but the goodwill the train produces cannot be measured in dollars." The Camrose Wildlife and Stewardship Society is re questing a grant of $7,700 to pay for one casual labourer and supplies. Camrose Wildlife and Stewardship Society highlights for this past summer included ten weekly interpretive programs on nature-related topics, the organization of a Battle River Watershed Alliance Discover Your Wetlands Day for Grade 5 students, the facilitation of the Purple Martin Landlords, a group of about 15 volunteers tending martin houses erected by the City of Camrose on their own land, and a Purple Martin Festival on June 5.

Great quiet cul-de-sac location

Frank Hoehn By Murray Green

If living in a quiet cul-de-sac in Century Meadows is your idea of a little piece of heaven, consider this bright roomy bi-level on a pie-shaped lot. There is a huge family room in the basement and a large deck overlooking a green backyard. Amenities such as a pa rk reserve and playground, shopping and schools are within a five minute drive, which makes this a g reat family home. You will be thrilled with this ready to move into three-bedroom 1,280 square foot home that features an impressive floor plan. A b eautiful oak staircase takes you from the entry up to the well-designed, bright living room and a dining area, suitable for the entire family. The impres-

sive kitchen has plenty of counter space and storage in attractive oak cabinets. There is also plenty of closet space in the large master bedroom and a t hree-piece en suite with a handy shower. Two more bedrooms and a main four-piece bathroom are also on the first level. The partly finished basement features a spacious family or games room, including a gorgeous fireplace, and will be the hub of activity for your family. The other half of the basement has been left as a storage area and is an ideal space to build for the needs of your family. There is s pace for an additional bedroom, a bathroom and storage. A ba sement entry leads

to the front attached double garage. Picture yourself enjoying the sunshine and nature on the large deck. It is ideal for barbecues and overlooks the park-like backyard.

Atom Buffaloes drop first game, ready for next round

By Murray Green The Camrose atom Buffaloes football team has a second life. After losing a playoff tiering game 25-6, the club is ready for the biggest test of the year. Camrose played the Stony Plain Bombers on Sunday, October 23, in the first round of the playoffs. Unfortunately, coach Fitz Sherman didn't have a full squad in the last game. "Two of our biggest and best lineman were not available this game. One lineman is t he starting centre and the other is the backup at the same position. We played the game with another lineman, Kevin Kittler, a first year player, as our starting centre for this game. He had one practice at this position before our game," explained Fitz. "Kevin did a great job considering the amount of practice time he had at this difficult position." The Buffaloes have had difficultly getting fired up early in football games. "Once again we were slow starting as the Bombers jumped out to a 18-0 lead at half time. The defence played okay in the first half, but had several missed tackles that led to touchdowns," said the coach. "Offensively, we could not punch it into the end zone, although we did move the ball. In our team's defence, we were playing with several players not in their normal positions on both sides of the ball." The second half was a different game as the defence held Stony Plain to only one touchdown. "We scored a touchdown

Heart death defying challenge The Heart and Stroke Foundation is asking Albertans to rethink death defying through its new initiative, the Heart and Stroke Death Defying Challenge. The Challenge will maintain the spirit of family fun and tradition brought to life by Ski for Heart, and offers participants the chance to actively demonstrate their commitment to health, while raising much-needed funds to advance life-giving research. Beginning January 1, 2012, the month-long event challenges

people around the province to complete at least ten hours of physical activity, and focus on healthy lifestyle choices for a longer, fuller life. It doesn’t take a death defying act to defy death; studies show that it only takes 2.5 hours of physical activity per week to lower the risk of heart disease and stroke. From January 27 to 29, participants will get together to celebrate their success with a wonderful weekend in the Canadian Rockies, while staying at the beautiful Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.

“My family and I have been participating in Ski for Heart for 10 years and we are thrilled with the evolution of the event,” says Dr. Todd Anderson, director, Libin Cardiovascular Institute of Alberta. “Most importantly, the money raised will continue to fund leading-edge research that will improve the lives of Albertans and all Canadians.” Getting involved is easy – everyone can participate, regardless of skills and abilities.

Regardless of the time of year, the best lighting conditions for landscapes occur when the sun is low in the sky, when the shadowforming angle of the light creates a strong sense of three-dimensional form in your pictures. During the more clement months, this is typically found early in the morning or just before sunset, but when the sun comes out in winter it remains low in the sky for the entire day. So, while winter may often be associated with wet, gray, and generally downbeat weather conditions, when the sun makes an appearance it is perfect for landscapes.

Portraits are seen for generations. Call Lowell to book your session



With daylight hours becoming short, the ends of the day are very accessible at this time of year, requiring neither an early start or a particularly late finish to capture glorious sunrises and sunsets across (potentially) snow-coated scenes. But this is j ust the tip of what winter sunlight has to offer: the low sun can be used equally for stark monochromatic images

and color shots, and it is t he perfect opportunity to look for backlighting that throws a subject into silhouette, or partial backlighting that creates a s trong warm glow around a subject – especially when the sun is included in shot. When the winter sun makes an appearance, it is the ideal time to head out with your camera and look for stunning landscapes

Jardine going to World Jr. Challenge By Murray Green

Hockey Canada and the Canadian Junior Hockey League named 34 players who will attend the Canada West selection camp in preparation for the 2011 World Junior A Challenge. The selection camp was held Oct. 29 to Nov. 1 at the Langley Events Centre in Langley, B.C., prior to the 2011 World Junior A Challenge that is scheduled for Nov. 7 t o 13. The 34 players will be divided into two teams and will play a pair of intersquad games, in addition to daily practices. Camrose Kodiaks' defenceman Sam Jardine will be attending the camp and wants to stay to participate in the challenge. "Any time you can wear the Maple Leaf, it is a thrill. You never know how many times you will have the honour to represent your country," said Sam. "I want to take the full advantage of the opportunity. We didn't medal last year. Hopefully this year we will come home with some hardware." The selection camp roster was picked by Canada West head coach Kent Lewis (Powell River, BCHL), along with assistant coaches Dean Brockman (Humboldt, SJHL) and Andrew Milne (Canmore, AJHL). “This was by no means an easy decision to get down to 34 players,” said Lewis. “We had a tremendous talent pool from which to choose, and we’re excited to give fans in Langley an early look at the players who will be representing Canada West at the World Junior A Challenge.” Sam is the sole Kodiaks' player attending camp. "Last year, I had four other players with me, so it made it easier. This time, I am on my own. Last year, I w as one of the younger guys and, as a returning player, I feel comfortable and want to show some leadership. I h ave by no means made the team yet. I still have to work hard because there are 11 other defencemen who are very skilled." Canada West’s selection camp roster includes four players returning from the 2010 World Junior A Challenge, including Jardine. He was selected in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft by the Chicago Blackhawks in the sixth round, 169th overall. "Last year, I w as younger, but felt I h ad a go od camp. Now, I feel I have a voice with the players and it allows me to play with some confidence. I'm not as nervous this year and hopefully I can take that positive energy onto the ice and be a leader." Canada West will play in Group A with Sweden and the United States. Canada East, the Czech Republic and Russia will comprise Group B.


Kodiaks watch Eagles soar in Canmore By Murray Green

The Camrose Kodiaks were embarrassed in Canmore by the lower ranked Eagles on Oct. 22. Canmore outplayed the Kodiaks and stole two points in a 4-3 contest. Warren Callis, Ryan Huolt and Landon Kadatz garnered the goals for Camrose. Goalie Matt Gibney stopped 34 of 38 shots to hold Camrose in the game as long as he could. "Combined, they were the two worst games we have played this season," said a disappointed Sam Jardine. "We did not come prepared to play, for whatever reason, and we ended up paying for it in practice this week." The Kodiaks not only worked a little harder on the ice this week, they had several running sessions as coach Boris Rybalka sent a clear message that taking a night off will not be tolerated. "Obviously, the coaches were disappointed in us, but more importantly, we were disappointed in ourselves," said Sam. "We have worked really hard to correct some of those flaws. You know, Brooks is starting to lose a f ew games and Okotoks is beginning to win, so things are getting a little tight in the standings. Those games against lower teams are just as important and we can't be giving the two points away."

The Camrose offence went south in the first game of the series. Defenceman Craig Bokenfohr scored on an unassisted play for the only tally of the game. Kodiaks' goalie Brayden Hopfe made all 23 saves to earn a shutout. "We received two points in the first game, but maybe we didn't deserve them. To give away the points in the second was extremely disappointing," said Sam. "We saw it last year too. It is

how the human brain works and sometimes you get complacent. We received a l ittle kick in the butt now. It was an eye opener for everyone to have our friend and teammate Warren Callis traded. It reminds us that you can't get too comfortable. There are so many players out there that want to play for the Kodiaks, so you have to play hard every night to keep your spot. We had some sore bodies here, so the message

was received." Callis was traded to the Winnipeg Blues for future considerations. After road trips to Olds and Drumheller, the Kodiaks host the tough Spruce Grove Saints on Nov. 3 for a 7:30 p.m. start. Camrose plays Sherwood Park on a short journey on Nov. 5 and then returns for a home game on Nov. 6 against the south division leaders, the Brooks Bandits. The puck drops at 2 p.m.

Then on November 9th, the SAIT Trojans are in Camrose to battle the Vikings. "It's really encouraging for us to receive more fan support this year. It helps the players and it is good for the league," said Harrison. "Last year, and this year, we have a better team and it is good that people are starting to take note of it and attending games."

The Augustana Vikings swept the Grant MacEwan Griffins 4-3 and 5-3 in hockey action on Oct. 21 and 22. They remain in the hunt of the front-running SAIT Trojans in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference. Augustana dominated the first game in Camrose as the mythical creatures were held at bay. Dean Prpick, Casey Rempel, Harrison Tribble and Kenny Bradley scored for the Vikings, while goalie David Ritz stopped eight of 11 shots he faced. "It was good to see that when we were down, we bounced back and picked up the two points on both nights, so t hat is a lways good," said Harrison Tribble. "I try and play my game, which is b eing physical, and chip in when I can from the point. When you receive a few points it adds confidence, and right now they are going in for me." Grant MacEwan was a tougher opponent in Edmonton during the return match on Saturday. Augustana had to work hard to win 5-3. "On Friday night, they didn't get a lot created offensively and not a lot went on. They were able to capitalize on the chances they had. Our team had a lot of changes, but it took us a while to put the puck in the net. When you outplay a t eam that bad, we would have been choked if we hadn't have come out with two points," said Harrison. "Saturday was a different game. They came out with a l ot more effort and a team game." It was a t eam effort for the Vikings as five players netted single markers. Tribble, Bradley, Devon Holtis, Jeremy Beirnes and Adam Johnson supplied the tallies. Goalie Paul Kolida stopped 26 of 29 shots. Each game in league play is different, despite the back to back games with the same club. "You


The Vikings' women's squad won the first game of the year, but then lost three straight to lose the match in four. Briercrest won 17-25, 25-19, 25-11 and 25-19 on Oct. 21. The next day, Briercrest won three in a row: 25-16, 25-12 and 25-12. The men's team also played better in the first match. Briercrest won the match in five evenly played games: 25-22, 26-28, 23-25, 25-13 and 15-13. It wasn't as close in the second match as the Clippers won 25-13, 25-22 and 25-23. Augustana's home opener will be on Nov. 4, when the Mount Royal Cougars provide the opposition. The women's game begins at 6 p.m., with the men to follow. Basketball

Second Thought By Alex Carpenter

Music Augustana Faculty, University of Alberta City of Muzak

Gustav Mahler, a composer and conductor from Vienna, Austria, who died in 1911, is one of the great composers of the late Romantic era. He is a key historical figure: his nine monumental symphonies effectively sum up the 19th century, and they are regularly performed and recorded worldwide by the very best conductors and orchestras. Mahler’s work is often gargantuan in scope, employing huge symphonic and choral forces and exploring philosophical and psychological themes through powerful and profoundly beautiful combinations of sound. At the same time, Mahler’s music can be deeply introspective, focusing on the personal, the human, conveying a wide range of feelings: passion, disillusionment, heartbreak, insecurity, firm conviction. For music that is at once complex yet disarmingly simple, grandiose yet sincere, bombastic yet intimate, you can’t do better than Mahler. This year, 2011, is t he Mahler year, the 100th anniversary of his death, and is being marked by a y ear-long celebration of the man and his work. In the midst of his centenary celebrations, however, the Gustav Mahler Society, a group devoted to the promotion and preservation of Mahler’s musical legacy is, like many similar societies in Vienna, barely surviving. It relies on volunteerism and just enough revenue to maintain a part-time office. This, in a city that advertises itself as the musical centre of Europe, as “The City of Music.” Vienna is the home of such famous figures as Johann Strauss – t he “waltz king” – and, of course, Mozart. Visitors to Vienna find no shortage of offerings related to these two figures, from cheesy “authentic” 18th century concerts given by musicians in powdered wigs and short pants, to t-shirts, to placemats, to the ubiquitous spherical chocolate treats called “Mozart balls.” T his aspect of The City of Music – t he mass marketing of its musical heritage – c ertainly brings in the tourists and contributes to the Austrian economy, but at what cost? Vienna happily hawks mar-

ketable versions of its most popular musical icons while at the same time sees massive funding cuts to organizations dedicated to the promotion and preservation of its priceless cultural inheritance, organizations such as the Mahler Society. O ther composer societies, and their archives and services, are also at risk of disappearing entirely, as government funding dwindles, copyrights run out and revenue from music sales dries up. T he great Gustav Mahler is not the only composer marginalized in Vienna: there are very limited resources in place to promote and preserve the legacies of some of classical music’s most important and creative figures, from Franz Schubert to Anton Bruckner to Alban Berg. One day, their legacies will be lost to us. You can buy a M ozart bobble-head doll anywhere in Vienna, but Mahler – i n whose work as a composer and a c onductor was both a potent advocate for new music and a s taunch guardian of the past, and whom the Viennese used to revere as “The Mahler” when he passed on the street – d oesn’t even have a statue in The City of Music. What does it mean for classical music, and the arts generally, if a cultural Mecca like Vienna cannot and will not preserve its priceless heritage and provide active and ongoing support to arts and culture, and looks instead always to the bottom line? What we so often fail to understand – especially these days, when economic concerns loom so large – is that arts, culture and intellectual heritage are the bottom line. When our relation to the pinnacles of artistic and intellectual achievement is allowed to weaken and fade, when meaningful connections and continuities are lost, then we in turn are diminished as human beings, and we find ourselves in a v ery different state of impoverishment, one that doesn’t improve in tandem with rising commodity prices or government bailouts. When we trade enduring beauty for that which simply sells, we trade the dizzying heights of Mahler’s musical vision for a h andful of Mozart balls.

Dorothy Edna Mutchler Dorothy was born to James and Faith Butler on November 19, 1915 on the family farm west of Ne w Norway, the youngest of s even. She w as fourth generation of t he Cody family after Buffalo Bill Cody on her mo ther’s side. She attended Dowling School until she st arted Grade 9 at New Norway School. In Grade 12, she qu it school to go to Ontario with her family to visit family. Dorothy enjoyed riding her horse to and from school whenever she could. Dorothy always had a love for music and reading which she learned from her parents, who were big readers, and there was always singing and music around the organ. She and her brother Victor took music lessons – she the organ and Victor the violin. Dorothy continued sharing her love for music in the church choir and playing the piano for the church. After returning from Ontario, she helped on the family farm and helped her sisters as they began their families until she married the love of her life, Ernest Mutchler. Dorothy met Ernest in high school and they married on July 2, 1937 on the Butler family farm. They had two children, Patricia May (James) Nelson and James (Heather) Eldon. Dorothy enjoyed farm life, raising chickens and her vegetable and flower garden. She will always be remembered for her beautiful glads. She was always there to help Ernest with all aspects of the farm. In 1975, Dorothy and Ernest retired from farming and moved to Camrose. She continued with her veget able and flower garden up u ntil the time she mo ved into the main lodge at Stoney Creek. At a young age, Dorothy got involved in the church community and the Ladies’ Aid, which she continued with throughout her life. She was always volunteering for different groups and activities. Dorothy was a charter member of the Jubilee Rebekah Lodge and a life member of the UCW. Dorothy was an avid sports fan through participation in curling, golf, fishing, camping and many other activities. She enjoyed watching sports as well and cheering on her team. Dorothy and Ernest enjoyed travelling on holidays with groups such as the Golden Tones and bus tours. Dorothy always had a joke at hand and a welcoming smile. Throughout her life, Dorothy gathered friends like flowers – always making new friends along with many lifelong friends through her journey. Dorothy had an unconditional love that encircled her family, whether it was immediate family or nieces and nephews. She was very proud of her grandchildren Sharon Nelson (Allen Kuicnskas), Brenda Younger (Brent), Lew and Trace (Lucy); great-grandchildren Terence Reed (Diana), Tabatha Reed (Christopher Johnson), James Younger, Jesse Younger, Natalie Zuk and Janiah Mutchler; and one great-great-grandchild Ayden Zuk-McInnes.

Job Fair held during Canada Career Week in Camrose By Murray Green

Alberta Works will be holding various sessions and a job fair this week to help people find employment or improve their searching skills. "This is t he 15th annual Canada Career Week. We want to promote our one-stop career centre equipped with job-search tools and staffed by professional career and employment consultants. We have a lot of resources that people may not be aware we offer," said Linda Cherry, Alber-

ta Works business and industry liaison. "We have resources for employers, career planning, information on changing careers and job information for people who are looking for work." On Tuesday, Nov. 1, a session on Preparing for Interview Success will take place from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at Alberta Works, located on the third floor of the Gemini Centre in the Labour Market Information Centre. A R esume Workshop will help those who want to improve their chances of

being noticed. A morning session will be held from 9 a .m. to noon and then from 1 to 3 p.m. A Job Fair and Service Provider Showcase is a great opportunity for dropping off those resumes and speaking with employers about potential employment on Nov. 3 a nd 4. On Thursday, the Job fair goes from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. On Friday, the hours are from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. "The Job Fair is an opportunity for people to talk to the employers and discuss various positions. There is a p ossibil-

ity that some employers will have interviews on the spot. We have space available for interviews," explained Linda. "We want to create more exposure for the services we offer. We have career employment consultants on site to help people with resume ideas and career planning. If the demand is there to offer more workshops, we can hold those on a more regular basis as well." Alberta Works assists with questions on student finance, learner benefits, the job market

in the Camrose area and out of the area. We assist with resumes by giving people the tools, but the person seeking employment has to write it. "We have six computers for people to work on and we can help with researching online. A lot of companies receive applications online, so we can help with that," added Linda. "We encourage everyone to come out this week and see what we have to offer and maybe we can help them find a job or position they would like."

Sport Development Society presents $80,000 to BRCF By Dan Jensen

The Camrose Sport Development Society (Camrose Kodiaks) has donated $80,000 of proceeds from the successful Royal Bank Cup tournament last spring to the Battle River Community Foundation. "The Royal Bank Cup organizing committee worked really hard to make sure we took care of all the details of the tournament and that is what really helped to make it a success," said Camrose Sport Development Society secretary and RBC Cup committee chair Kevin Gurr. "We have had a c ouple of good years and a couple of good events that have allowed us to give back." Part of the donation will be used to establish a Battle River Community Foundation endowment fund that will support minor sports teams. "Local sports teams who win provincials and travel to national championships need help with their costs, and this fund is something that they could access," stated Gurr. The Camrose Sport Development Society has a long history of supporting community projects. In 2010 it presented a cheque for $75,000 to the City of Camrose to help pay for the cost of an air conditioning system at EnCana Arena.

Camrose Sport Development Society treasurer Kevin Pratt (left) presents a cheque for $80,000 to Battle River Community Foundation board chair Blain Fowler.

"The money was a legacy from the World Jr. A Championships that were held in Camrose in November, 2008," said Sport Development Society treasurer Kevin Pratt. The society also purchased the arena's large video screen. The Camrose Sport Development Society was formed in the 1990s with the intent of purchasing and moving to t his

city the struggling Sherwood Park Crusaders. While that deal eventually fell through, the group persisted and was eventually awarded the Alberta Junior Hockey League expansion franchise that became the Camrose Kodiaks. The purpose of the Camrose Sport Development Society, as stated in the constitution drawn up by Verlyn Olson, the first

president, is to help and develop all sports in Camrose, not just hockey. "We've supported teams that have won provincials with their trips to national events," said Pratt. Battle River Community Foundation board chair Blain Fowler said the donation is one of the largest the Foundation has received this year. "The members of the board of the Battle River Community Foundation are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the Camrose Sport Development Society in this way," said Fowler. "The Foundation is able to deliver flow-through grants for worthy endeavours at the direction of the Society while long-term emerging needs will be met with earnings from the endowment portion of the gift, forever. Neither partner would be able to accomplish these objectives alone. "This is truly a win-win situation and a perfect example of how two groups can work together for the good of the community." The April 30 to May 8 Royal Bank Cup featured five of Hockey Canada's top Jr. A t eams: the host Camrose Kodiaks, the Portage Terriers, the Pembroke Lumber Kings, the Vernon Vipers and the Wellington

Dukes. Pembroke defeated Vernon by the score of 2-0 to win the national championship. The national championship drew over 20,000 fans. The Camrose Sport Development Society is currently making plans to host the training camp of the United States' national junior hockey team from December 16 to 24. "The team will be playing three exhibition games in preparation for the World Junior Championship, one of which will be in Camrose against the Swiss team December 21," said Gurr. "It should be a great game because we know there are some very talented players on both teams. After the U.S. and Russia game in Red Deer this could be the biggest game on the exhibition schedule. I k now we have had strong ticket sales so far." The Battle River Community Foundation supports projects which benefit communities and have a p ositive impact on the future. Since it was founded in 1995 the Battle River Community Foundation has granted over $1,400,000 to support important local initiatives and organizations. The Camrose Sport Development Society has twelve members, most of whom are from the local business community.

Wilson qualifies for national championships in cyclocross By Murray Green

Connor Wilson turned to the sport of cyclocross for fun and soon found himself engulfed in the competition. He tried other sports such as hockey, cross-country skiing, biathlon and the FACT club at the Camrose Composite High School (a triathlon of sports like swimming, biking and running), but they didn't satisfy his thirst for an adrenaline rush. "One of the guys I sk ied with was into mountain biking. So, I tried it. I liked it and then expanded into road racing and then cyclocross," said Connor. "This is my second season of competing." Connor joined the Juventus cycling team in Edmonton and trains with Todd Markowsky, teacher at the high school. "There were a few guys that helped me get started and then you train a lot on your own. I l ike the sport because you can train individually and the results you receive reflect what you put into it." Cyclocross is growing at a rapid rate and it is a c hallenging form of bicycle racing that takes place in the fall when the temperatures are cooler, the track is unpredictable and the participants are competitive. "Before 30 people would show up for an event, now it is about 150 in Edmonton." A typical course consists of a two or three kilometre course over natural trails such as dirt and sand. "The typical course takes about an hour to complete," said Connor. "The course usually has a 40 centimeter obstacle that you have hop the bike over. If you are really good, you can bunny hop them (without leaving the bike). There are lots of turns and hills. Anyone can do it, but it is tough." The course contains a series

Connor Wilson participates in a cyclocross race earlier this year.

of challenges where riders have to dismount and carry their bikes over obstacles. "Sometimes I ride through a sand pit here to train for the cyclocross. I go u p and down hills and you practice going

over obstacles." Unlike running or skiing, the competitors stay within sight of spectators, which makes it a fan-friendly sport. Cyclocross favours a go od cyclist with the ability to run

with a 17-pound bike. "When I first started, I used my mountain bike and just went out for fun. Now, I r ide every day and train specifically for cyclocross. I began in the lowest category and now

I'm in the elite men's division. I have progressed through the ranks with training," said Connor. His bike has also changed from what was available in the garage to a very elite machine. "It is not the best, but it worth a lot and it weighs about 18 pounds." He is working on improving his gear along with his results as he gains experience. Competitors in his division can range from about 16 bikers to 70. "At nationals, I'm expecting about 40 people in my category," explained Connor. He went from a rookie into the men's division in a sh ort time. "I've had a l ot of good results this season with several wins and have placed in the top five in most races." This past weekend, Connor went to Calgary. "Any place that has a pa rk can host an event. With the hills and parks we have in Camrose, it would be great to host one here in the future. "I was selected to Team Alberta based on my performances this year. I want to keep improving and represent our province at nationals. We compete individually, but we are sponsored as a team." The nationals are in Toronto on Nov. 5. "I want to finish in the top 10, even though I am out for some fun. That is my goal, because it is my first time at nationals," said the 19-year-old. "I'm still growing so I just want to get better. I want to see where I finish and then set goals for next year. It is a rea lly fun sport and all you need is a bike to try it. Everyone should try it." Connor's future goal is to race in Europe. Currently, only two Americans compete on the pro circuit in Europe. He wants to add a Canadian to that list one day.

Buick Regal An unforgettable driving experience

Graeme Davidson McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet damping of the shocks based on driving conditions. Tour mode is t he ideal setting for long highway drives. It assists in absorbing bumps caused by uneven road surfaces, minimizing the effects felt inside the cabin. Sport mode provides sharper, speed-sensitive steering response, quicker throttle action and crisper transmission shifting. The ride is stiffer and the handling is tighter, for a more authoritative command of the road. The system even senses when you are driving more assertively and automatically shifts into the Sport mode.

By Dan Jensen

The sport sedan that earned European Car of the Year honours in 2009 and has established itself as the best-selling mid-size car in Europe is a vailable now at McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC Camrose. The 2011 Buick Regal takes the successful foundation of its European sibling, the Opel Insignia, and adapts it for North American roads and driver preferences. It also builds on the momentum generated by the recent awardwinning launches of the Buick Enclave and LaCrosse. "It's going to shake up some outdated notions, not only of the sport sedan but also of Buick," said McClellan Wheaton sales professional Graeme Davidson. "It has undeniable style, a top-notch interior, a refined ride and a rewarding turn of speed. It all culminates in a decidedly European driving experience," said Graeme Fletcher, Canwest News Service. Sleek design

The fluid, aerodynamic shape of the Buick Regal was refined with more than 650 hours in the wind tunnel. But there is much more to the Regal than its wind-cheating abilities. The lines are strong and the contours sculpted. And the design's clear sense of purpose is echoed by equally rigorous craftsmanship. It can be seen in the remarkably tight and consistent connection between interior trim panels and exterior body panels. Nice balance

Today, power must be complemented by fuel efficiency. To keep you ahead of the curve, Regal employs the latest in engine technology. Regal CXL is powered by a 2.4 litre ECOTEC engine that features Direct Injection and Variable Valve Timing to produce an enviable balance of torque and horsepower. Output is 182 horsepower, while the highway fuel consumption rating is an impressive 6.5 litres per 100 kilometres. The six-speed automatic transmission heightens the sense of engagement with Driver Shift Control that lets you tap up or down – shifting gears like a manual. The 2.0 litre ECOTEC turbocharged and intercooled engine on Regal CXL generates 220 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. Its dual-scroll turbo technology represents a marvel of engineering, with dual exhaust passages that funnel gas into turbine impellers that rotate up to 162,000


times per minute. The result is up to 1.4 bar (20 psi) of boost that helps generate peak torque at just 2,000 rpm, translating into phenomenal acceleration. And the fuel efficiency is a revelation for a car with these performance credentials. Precision handling

The chassis, suspension, braking, StabiliTrak electronic stability control system and full-function traction control define the way Regal feels and handles. The standard MacPherson struts work with other chassis components to optimize both body and wheel control, while also contributing to Regal's European-tuned ride characteristics and stable braking. Variable-effort steering, standard on CXL Turbo, automatically reduces hydraulic assistance at higher speeds to help increase your steering feel. At city speeds, more assist is provided for easier manoeuvrability. Four-link in dependent rear suspension specifically contributes to exceptional ride tracking characteristics, even on rough surfaces, while enhancing driveability. StabiliTrak and Full Function Traction Control, in conjunction with four-wheel ABS, help maintain optimal traction and steering control over a wide range of driving conditions, including under hard braking and on most slippery surfaces. Driving styles

Regal CXL Turbo's Interactive Drive Control System enables you to choose between three driving modes: Normal, Tour and Sport. Normal is ideal for city driving and daily commuting. The shock absorbers read the road up to 500 times per second and automatically adjust the

All passengers get to enjoy the rich luxurious comfort provided by the leather-appointed seating, with Frenchstitched seams. For added comfort, the driver and front passenger seats are heated. And for the height of convenience – h ow about a w indshield humidity sensor that activates the defogger automatically when moisture is detected. Regal's concept of an interactive driving experience extends far beyond the bond between driver and machine. It also applies to the plethora of electronic entertainment, communication and information technology on board, from standard Bluetooth connectivity to the available voice-activated Navigation System and command centre. Tell the Navigation System where you are going and it will tell you how best to get there. The command centre enables you to select between navigation, phone or audio menus. Included in the system is a 4 0 GB hard drive that not only runs the Navigation System, but can also store thousands of tunes. It also allows you to pause and replay live radio and hear up to 20 minutes of previously recorded programming. Safety

Regal's Body Frame Integral structure uses highstrength steel in strategic locations and side-impact protection beams to provide added passenger compartment protection. Regal goes above and beyond with innovations like double-pretensioned front safety belts and a patented Pedal Release System. In addition, rear outboard seatmounted thorax air bags are available. And every Regal includes OnStar's Automatic Crash Response that alerts an advisor to call for help – even if you can't.

You can see the Buick Regal when you visit McClellan Chevrolet Buick GMC. Phone 780-672-0123 and ask for one of the friendly sales professionals.

Bantam Vikings edge Airdrie By Murray Green

The Camrose bantam tripleA Vikings conquered the Airdrie Extreme 3-1 in regular season hockey at the Edgeworth Centre on Oct. 23. Camrose started the attack when Drew Bish scored early in the first period. Andrew Har-

rison netted his first of two on a shorthanded play in the middle frame. He added his second on an unassisted play and the squad hung on for a close victory. Goalie Travis Child turned aside 29 of 30 shots in the Camrose net. The Vikings fired 33 at the Airdrie goal.


The Good Lovelies are preparing for Camrose By Murray Green

The Good Lovelies have been in greater demand for concert performances across Canada since the country-blue grass band released its third full-length album, Let The Rain Fall, in February. With three strong voices and a variety of instruments, it is hard to label this group in one music category. "We thrive on three part harmonies and we like to call our sound roots. We have a l ittle bit of bluegrass, a little country, some pop and a little folk and we just call it roots to make it easy for everyone," explained band member Caroline Brooks. "We play the banjo, mandolin, electric guitar, acoustic guitar and for the Alberta tour, we added an upright bass." The Good Lovelies consist of Caroline, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore. "We will be adding an upright bassist player Thom Golub for our Alberta shows. He is from Edmonton." The high energy trio is a s comfortable on stage as they are at home. "We have a g reat time on stage. The three of us are best friends first and then band mates. It is really important for us to have camaraderie between us. We are on the road every day with each other and sometimes we just step out and skip rope or we investigate a r oad sign. We like to keep it light and just have a lot of fun. We perform about 150 shows a year, so it has to be fun." The girls have played headlining shows and festivals throughout Canada, and have recently returned home from journeys to England, the United States and Australia. The Good Lovelies started their fall tour this month and wrap it up in late November. Then the band goes on a two-week Christmas concert tour. The band members released a mini-album with four songs to launch their career. "We started with a short play CD in 2007 called Oh My! Then we came out with our first full-length CD i n 2009," said Caroline. Instead of one writer, suddenly they found themselves with three talented songwriters. They bounced ideas off of each other and as a re sult, beautiful songs turned up on their Juno-winning self-titled album, and followed on the Let The Rain Fall release. "We write all of our own music, except for maybe one cover tune on each album. We are happy to share our own music." In 2010, their debut album received a J uno for Roots/Traditional Album of the Year. The Christmas album and the new release gives the Good Lovelies four CDs of songs that have received rave reviews. The true holiday spirit is also reflected on their holiday album, Under The Mistletoe, which showcases new and old seasonal tunes, including three original songs. The Good Lovelies have been able to recapture their solid recording sessions on stage. All three have a n incredibly captivating stage presence that adds to the entertaining show.

Caroline reflected on how the band meet. "We all remember it differently. Sue remembers meeting her band mates during a limbo competition, Caroline thinks they met at a chess tournament, but Kerri is convinced they first crossed paths during a bar fight," said Caroline. "The truth is, it is a little fuzzy because we knew each other before we actually formed our group. We became better friends as we played. Two years later, we were so fortunate that we were able to quit our jobs and play music full time. To go it alone is very hard. Together, we have leaned on each other and have celebrated the hard times with the good. It has been so much fun and we feel lucky to be able to share our music with so many fans. It is very exciting. It is a dream come true for us. We are fortunate to have a good following." What drew the three solo artists together five years ago was the fact they could all sing and play several instruments, but not a l ot was happening to their individual careers. "We all had these dreary, sad so ngs at the same concert in Toronto. Then we did some Christmas songs together because the show was in early December," added Caroline. "It was so magical the way our voices blended together. From there, the band took over our lives." When they decided to perform together the best attributes came to the forefront in three-part harmonies. All three talents were fine tuned as they constantly swapped instruments and began a f riendly, yet witty on-stage banter that has made them a h it with fans across the country. The latest CD extends the band's talents and skills. The high tempo “Made for Rain� and “Kiss Me in the Kitchen� should have people dancing in the aisles at Scalliwags. The Good Lovelies are also a hit with ballads such as “Best I Know.� Whether the band plays at a cosy rum bar or a huge music festival, the band enjoys getting to know the audience. "In some ways it is not different at all. You still put on the show that you want to put on. We have a level that we want to meet or exceed in a show," said Caroline. "In some other ways, it is really quite special to be in small places. Once in a while we still do house concerts and the intimacy can't really be matched in a l ive big theatre or at outdoor festivals. When you are among the fans it gives you an opportunity to tell stories and share your life. It just isn't about music. People like our sense of humour. "We love Alberta! We are really looking forward to this tour and our stop in Camrose. Alberta has beautiful people and they really like our shows. I'm sure Camrose will be a g reat place for us to perform." The band opens in Alberta on Nov. 9 i n Leduc's Maclab Centre for the Performing Arts, before arriving at Scalliwags for a show to remember on Nov. 11.

Westfall recovering from knee surgery without prescriptions By Murray Green

Although Bernice Westfall is getting better with each passing day, she still feels the pain from knee replacement surgery. A combination of wax and water led to Bernice's fall misfortune back in 2009, which severely damaged her knee. Surgery was the only answer. "I had to have complete knee replacement surgery and I have a reaction to over the counter and prescription pain medication,"

explained Bernice. "My reaction can cause kidney and liver failure, so I didn't have much of a choice." Dr. Larry Hunka performed the surgery at the Misericordia Hospital in Edmonton. Then it was on to therapy. She started using ice to freeze and control the pain. Then with some physiotherapy, Bernice was able to apply heat to the bottom and ice on top to give her relief. "The combination of heat, ice and resting helped control the pain. Now,

I have introduced heat to both top and bottom of my knee to allow me to straighten and stretch my knee and leg," said Bernice, who lives in Ferintosh. Her progress without pain medication has amazed her doctors. "It is not only surprising the doctors, therapists and others who have been through the same surgery, but also myself. I was nervous going for surgery. I wasn't sure what or how the amount of pain would be

managed or controlled," said Bernice. "I have been pleasantly surprised by the amount of pain control and pain relief I am receiving from ice and heat." Recovering from surgery without the use of modern medicine might not be recommended for every patient. "I am not suggesting this method is for other people. If I was able to take pain medication – b e reassured, I would most definitely."

Bernice wants to spread the message that there are other options to recovery. "Though not pleasant, it has worked for me and continues to work. Complete knee replacement is very painful. To be able to recover without pain medication is difficult and unusual, but it is working for me. I would like to encourage others who react to pain medication, by saying that there is a viable option."

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.
