Remembrance Day is Sunday A great way to honour and observe the overwhelming sacrifice of our country’s military veterans and their dependents is to pay tribute on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. Take time from shopping, housework and recreational and leisure activities on this day so those who fought and the many who died fighting for our future freedom are never forgotten.

Kevin Sorenson M.P., Crowfoot

On Remembrance Day, Canadians honour fellow citizens who have made the “ultimate sacrifice.” Throughout Canada’s history, men and women have stood up for our values, our freedoms, and our way of life. They have accepted the risk of placing their own lives ‘on the line’ on behalf of their families, friends, neighbours and fellow Canadians. “At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month …” every year, we thank all of our military Veterans and take a moment to remember the men and women who gave their lives standing up for our freedom and way of life. Throughout our large riding of Crowfoot, remarkable numbers of constituents young and old attend events to commemorate Canada’s Veterans, particularly on Remembrance Day. Many Canadian military veterans live in our riding. In 2010, when I was the Chair of the Special Committee on Canada’s Mission in Afghanistan, I had the privilege of travelling to Afghanistan and met many of the 2,800 Canadians who were there at that time performing the difficult ‘handson’ work of Canada’s Mission in Afghanistan. As well, I met numerous Afghanis, government officials, military personnel and local citizens. Afghanistan has been a nation in conflict for many decades. I could see in the eyes of the folks I met that they yearned for a time when they could live in peace – free of persecution and violence. Many spoke of concerns for their families and the hopes they had for future generations. Coming from our area of Alberta, my reaction to the state of life I saw in Afghanistan was that it was a prime example of what years ago, our Canadian military helped prevent from happening here at home, and across the Free World. While the horrors of war must never be forgotten, we must also remember that the price of freedom is eternal vigilance. We must never fail to defend it. I hope everyone will take part in one of the many Remembrance Day ceremonies in our community. And on behalf of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and our federal government, I wish to thank the men and women currently serving in the Canadian Armed Forces as well as all those who have served in the past. Lest we forget.

Legion holds Remembrance Day Service at CRE By Murray Green

It's our privilege once again to remember those who fought to make Canada the best country in the world. The Camrose branch of the Royal Canadian Legion will be holding its annual Remembrance Day service at the Camrose Regional Exhibition on Sunday, November 11. Buses for veterans will be leaving the Legion at 10 a.m. and run until 10:30 a.m. The doors at the CRE open at 10 a.m. People are asked to be seated by 10:45 a.m. so the colour party and veterans can be seated prior to the 11 a.m. service. "We will be having a guest speaker from the Lord Strathcona's Horse (Royal Canadians) to talk about his or her experience serving in Afghanistan," said Legion service organizer Ragnar Gislason. Government officials and business leaders will be given the opportunity to lay a wreath in honour of all veterans. People are encouraged to purchase and lay a wreath. They are available at the Legion during regular business hours. Stop by any downtown business to pick up a poppy. After the service, buses will return to the Legion. The branch will be open to members and special guests, such as

cadets and scouts, until 2 p.m. Then it will be open to everyone.

Entertainment featuring Christine Horne will be held in the hall.

Local Legion club is a leader in community involvement By Murray Green

The Camrose branch of the Royal Canadian Legion was started back in 1928. It has been a very important community member during the ensuing 83 years. "It was originally formed by First World War servicemen and has gone on to include Second World War, other wars and peacekeepers since then," said Legion past president Bill Hart. "The primary focus is to serve veterans or families, seniors and also

the community, including the youth." A small number of veterans have worked tireless hours to keep the branch strong. "Well over $1.5 million has gone back into the community since the inception of the Legion, through fund-raising events. We haven't changed our focus. We are still community minded, as well as looking after veterans." The organization is striving to include new members to be able to continue to serve

the community. "We have to draw on the strengths of new members from the conflicts and peacekeeping to keep our Legion strong. Our numbers have been declining over the years, as are all other Legion branches across the country. We have to change our focus to bring in those members and keep the Legion alive." The Legion is an important service club. "We are actively involved in supporting local youth initiatives, as well as senior activities," said president

Gordon Minnes. "We put a lot back into the community." The Legion building is still too big for the club's needs and members will continue to search for solutions. "One of the major fund-raisers is working bingos in Wetaskiwin, and now we have Thursday 7 p.m. bingos in the Camrose Legion Memorial Hall that are open to everyone," said Gord. Veterans' stories are now being collected in a five-edition book called Alberta and Northwest Territories Command

Military Service Recognition. The branch encourages all veterans and families to submit their information for the sixth edition. The local branch has sponsored the army cadet program for the past 10 years and some members have gone on to serve their country. The Camrose branch of the Royal Canadian Legion will be holding a Remembrance Day service at the Camrose Regional Exhibition on Sunday, November 11.

Legion names new board for next term

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Camrose branch of the Royal Canadian Legion Ladies' Auxiliary past president Jean Enger, from left to right, presented donations to Mark Fulton (along with his dog Hutch) of Dogs with Wings, camp director Kathy Omoth of Back Wilderness Family Camp and to Family Violence Action Centre representatives Ashlynn Semmens, Kaitlyn Vikse and Sheralyn Dobos.

By Murray Green The Camrose branch of the Royal Canadian Legion named its new executive for the 201213 term at a regular meeting on October 23. They will be installed at the November meeting. Bill Hart remains the past president and Gord Minnes accepted another term as president, while Gerry Czapp agreed to serve as executive vice-president. The second vice-president position is held by Bob Burt. Secretary Bev Thompson will continue to fill her past position and Bill Hart will serve as the treasurer. The sergeant-at-arms position is currently vacant. Camrose United Church minister Mary Ann Pastuck is the padre. Named to the executive board are Rose Hart, Mavis

Empey, Pete Steinman, Lloyd Dool, Deb Denman and Gord McTavish. One position remains open. The Ladies' Auxiliary will be elected at the November meeting. The Legion will be holding two other major events in November. The Remembrance Day service will be held at the CRE on November 11. A Grey Cup party is scheduled for Sunday, November 25. The Memorial Hall, which seats abut 200 people, and the board room, which seats about 30 to 35, is available for bookings by members or non-members.

PEN POINTS by Berdie Fowler

Hope for peaceful co-existence We will pause again on November 11 to remember and pay tribute to the Canadian men and women who have served their country in warfare and also in the performance of risky peacekeeping duties. Many thousands of them, mostly the youngest and fittest, made the ultimate sacrifice – they died, almost all of them on foreign soil. As we again remember, it is, as always, our fervent hope that their effort was not in vain. World War I – the Great War of 1914-18 fought in Europe – was said, at the time, to be the war to end wars. It wasn’t; in fact it planted some of the irritants out of which erupted the 1939-44 World War II just a brief twenty years later. Another generation of young men and women involved in military service suffered injury and/or death; civilian casualties were enormous; a number of British and many European cities, towns, factories, bridges, utility services, were reduced to heaps of rubble. Unimaginable atrocities were committed. Could anything good result from such horrible destruction and distress? European nations had had a long history of varying alignments as enemies or allies. Would anything change this recurring pattern of hostile international relationships? Happily, we can say yes. It is 67 years since World War II ended in 1945; that is a span of three generations during which member nations of the European Union (EU) have abandoned destructive war in favour of constructive discussions, trade negotiations, and treaties. It has been a tedious, slow process but has increased their interdependence and diminished the possibility of war among them. Even with the current serious economic troubles facing some EU members, we hear no threat of war among them. For this truly great achievement – perhaps the world’s greatest ever – the European Union was awarded this year’s Nobel Peace Prize. It was well deserved and it provides hope that the recognition will draw world-wide attention to the fact that there are successful alternatives to military engagements with their accompanying catastrophic effects on all parties involved in such conflicts. Because diverse European nations have learned how to avoid wars, it gives hope that international tensions anywhere in the world can be resolved in the same way. Conceivably Middle East nations could, over a period of time, accomplish the same for the benefit of each; similarly wherever there are smaller pockets of military threats and/or action. There is reason to hope for eventual peaceful co-existence among all nations. People at the community level all over the world just want to live at peace with equal opportunity to provide for their families. All the world’s great religions teach us to love one another and treat others as we would like to be treated – a lesson that could achieve harmonious relationships if it were practiced by all. We humans have a choice. We praise the Royal Canadian Legion for not letting us forget the valiant service of men and women who were injured and/or died in warfare and peacekeeping duties. The fact that Legion membership is dwindling is actually very good news: it is proof that a growing number of nations are avoiding war and therefore there are fewer veterans for whom to care. We also praise our local Royal Canadian Legion branch for its projects which directly benefit our community.

A reply to Pro Life Billions of human sperm are produced and discarded every day. Also, not so many but probably in the hundreds of millions of human eggs are produced and discarded every day. These have absolutely no value. If a sperm should enter an egg to form a zygote, only religious irrationality would allow a person to suddenly assign a value to this zygote equal to a living human being such as myself. I find this insults my intelligence. The zygote only has value to the woman who would like to become a mother in the normal course of events of a woman trying to become pregnant, probably several zygotes form and spontaneously abort for one natural reason or another. When a zygote takes hold, forms an embryo, and eventually a child, that event cannot be happier. But in some cases an unplanned pregnancy can be a disaster for a woman. In a society that recognizes the freedom and equality of women, there should be a free, safe, and quickly accessed medical procedure to terminate unwanted pregnancies. In Canada we have made much progress towards this ideal goal. However, Pro Life continues the war against women by trying to make abortion as little available as they can by trying to make a woman feel guilty if she terminates a pregnancy. If we, in Canada, are one of the few countries with no abortion laws, it is because women have more freedom and equality than in most countries, even though we still have some way to go. Mary Caulfield, in her letter of October 16 in The Camrose Booster says that the recent private member's bill introduced in parliament was not for the purpose of re-opening the debate on abortion. That is merely "a proposal to examine and study the advancement in medical evidence in assessing the humanity of the unborn child." This statement fools no one. There would be no reason for parliament to assess medical advances in saving premature babies except to impose restrictions on abortion. What are these people afraid of? Do they think that some poor woman will decide that after being pregnant for eight months that she is suddenly going to decide to abort

the fetus? Ridiculous! Medical advances have been of great benefit for those parents having great difficulty in having a baby. That is wonderful. There will be times when a fetus may have to be aborted to save the mother's life. That is as it should be, as the mother is far more valuable than the fetus, just as I consider my life more valuable than that of a zygote. We don't need laws to regulate such things. If the Conservatives would like to win the next election they would be wise to replace Rona Ambrose as Secretary of State for the Status of Women. After all, half of us are women. Arnold Baker Edberg A special organization I attended the Camrose Association for Community Living (CAFCL) Charity Auction at the CRE on October 13, 2012. It was a wonderful event. It had the feeling of a large family gathering getting together for a common goal to support CAFCL. The staff, volunteers, businesses and the community have combined their efforts to make this a worthwhile and successful annual event. I am very happy and proud to be part of it. I have worked for the Camrose Seniors' Open golf tournament committee in recruiting support and donations from businesses. Aside from their generosity I have become aware of their constant demand by the 'Community' for their participation, donations and sponsoring numerous events. It is absolutely amazing how they continue to support the Camrose community – they deserve much praise and our heartfelt thanks. I started to volunteer with CAFCL with the idea that I would be helping someone. I'll call him 'Cowboy.' In reality it is I who have perhaps gained the most. Cowboy comes to my workshop every two weeks to work on various wood projects. He speaks with his eyes, his smiles and his movements. I have learned to communicate with him in our own type of sign language. He is a joy to spend time with. At first I thought it was about wood working, but it turned out to be so much more. It was basically about being together, talking, clowning around and just having fun. I believe it takes a special person and a special organization to help special people recognize and realize their potential and importance in the community. My wife has worked with CAFCL over the past few years and this has given me the opportunity to meet many of the staff. I am in awe of the special talents these people have and the role they fulfill with genuineness and compassion. I think they should all get the recognition they deserve. Theirs is not a job. It is a career dedicated to assisting people to reach their potential and how

they can grow in their personal life while also contributing to their community in their own special way. Thank you CAFCL for giving me the opportunity to enrich my life while contributing to your organization. Wayne Sampson, Camrose The question of influence In recent days Albertans have been treated to a public viewing of financial statements related to our April 23 provincial election. The Wildrose Party raised $3.1 million and spent $3 million on their campaign. The Tories raised $1.6 million and spent $4.6 million. The real story for Albertans, however, is that PC statements reveal Edmonton billionaire Daryl Katz (along with his family members and executives in his company) collectively contributed $300,000 to the Tories. It’s been alleged Katz actually contributed $430,000 to the PC campaign with a single cheque signed by Mr. Katz himself. While many Albertans are crying foul about what it all means for our democratic process – especially in light of the fact that Mr. Katz is looking for $100 million from the province to complete an arena deal with the City of Edmonton – we will be told that such a donation is legal, and in Alberta it is. That’s the problem. A political party can receive up to $30,000 from any individual, union, corporation, association or religious institution during the campaign period, and an annual maximum of $15,000 outside it. Big money allows parties to make a bigger splash during an election through television and radio commercials, print ads, signs and large, wellequipped campaign offices. These huge contributions, and the apparent ease of getting around the donation limits, beg the question of whether influence is being secured. The federal government limits the size of political donations to $1,100 per person. Along with the provinces of Nova Scotia, Manitoba and Quebec the feds also ban donations from corporations and unions. After the 2008 Alberta election, Chief Electoral Officer Lorne Gibson recommended greater transparency and accountability, but he was relieved of his position in 2009. The chief electoral officer has announced that the Katz contributions will be investigated, but we need to see more. It’s past time our government acted to ensure money isn’t the deciding factor in who forms government. It’s time to address election financing rules that – at the very least – make it appear wealthier members of society have a greater say in and control over our political system.

First reading for redistricting bylaw By Dan Jensen

City council has given first reading to a bylaw that would redistrict two lots at 3505 and 3606 50 Street from the current zoning of R2 single family residential to institutional. The redistricting would allow for the construction of a Catholic church and parish hall. "The applicants are wishing to construct a church on the lands and require a redesignation, as churches are a permitted use in an institutional district," said acting director of development and planning services Shelley Munro in a presentation to City council Oct. 22. Munro said the construction of the church may not come to fruition for possibly five to ten years. "(The applicant) would like certainty of being able to use the lands for the church at this time prior to finalizing their offer to purchase these lands." A public open house on the proposed redistricting showing concept drawings will be held at Mirror Lake Centre from 7 to 9 p.m. November 15.

Popular Alberta humourist Phil Callaway is coming to the Camrose Legion on November 30 to headline a day devoted to celebrating seniors. Hosted by the Camrose Seniors Coalition, Celebrating Seniors' Day will also feature a roast beef dinner at noon catered by A-1 caterers, a lively interactive session on memory retention as we age presented by Wendy Fothergill (Alberta Health Services Camrose office), and an opportunity to participate in some Tai Chi stretches, led by Linacre Griffiths of the Camrose Tai Chi group. Starting at 10:00 a.m. and ending around 3:30 p.m., Celebrating Seniors' Day is a bargain at $20 per ticket. Tickets are available until November 21, 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. “We were really excited to book Phil Callaway for this event,” noted Margaret Holliston, Executive Director of Camrose and District Support Services, which hosts the Camrose Seniors' Coalition. “I’ve never seen him, but several Seniors' Coalition members have had the pleasure. They say he is very funny, but also quite insightful – he makes people laugh and he gets people thinking.” The best-selling, awardwinning author of fifteen books, Phil Callaway also hosts a TV show called “Laughing Matters” and edits Servant magazine, an inter-denominational magazine started in 1988 at the Prairie Bible Institute, and which is now read in more than 100 countries. Despite some pretty amazing credentials, Callaway keeps his presentations pretty down-to-earth, peppered with stories that help people laugh and learn about the things that matter most to all of us – seniors and non-seniors alike. Why bring Phil Callaway to Camrose to help us celebrate local seniors by sharing some healthy food, happy laughs, healthy Tai Chi stretches and helpful memory retention ideas? “Well,” Holliston explains. “Camrose is a senior-friendly community in several ways. Businesses, government and services all work hard so that most seniors can live actively, comfortably and affordably in our community. Seniors, in turn, contribute so much to Camrose. They volunteer their talents, skills and countless hours to all sorts of local programs. Seniors shop in Camrose; they invite family and friends to visit them from out of town, all of which helps our local economy. Celebrating Seniors Day is our way of recognizing just how vital seniors’ contributions are.” Camrose and District Support Services is helping to sponsor the event, along with several local businesses and service clubs. Call Margaret Holliston at 780-6720141 for more information.

City council has approved the purchase of a 2013 Rosenbauer custom rescue truck from Rocky Mountain Phoenix at a cost of $427,265. Fire chief Peter Krich told councillors Oct. 22 that the Camrose Fire Department's current rescue truck is now 15 years old and due for replacement. "We try to follow a firefighting apparatus replacement program," said Krich. "Meeting that standard requires us to look at a replacement of that vehicle after 15 years of service." The rescue truck is the Camrose Fire Department's most used piece of equipment as it carries all the rescue tools needed for any type of call, as well as all the extra equipment that may be required at a fire scene. Camrose Fire Department issued the call for tenders in August. "We met with both Rocky Mountain Phoenix and WholeSale Fire and Rescue to discuss any cost saving that could be applied to the present tender and both came back with further cost savings," said Krich. The funds for the purchase were included in the 2012 City of Camrose equipment reserve capital budget. "Council has allocated $150,000 a year to go into the reserve policy for exactly this type of capital purchase," said City manager Damian Herle.

The Home Team Paper

City Center Camrose expresses concern over need to provide audited statements By Dan Jensen

Mayor Marshall Chalmers will be sending a letter to the Minister of Municipal Affairs asking for a review of the legislation that requires business revitalization zones to provide to city councils audited financial statements. "We will send a letter to the minister outlining the issues at

hand and see the response that we get," said the mayor. Section 7 of the Business Revitalization Zone regulations states that BRZ boards must, each year, submit an audited financial statement to the council and any reports required by the council by the date agreed upon by council. City manager Damian Herle

told council that, while the cost of doing an audit is onerous to organizations like City Center Camrose, they have no choice but to comply with the legislation. City Center Camrose has requested that it be allowed to save money by allowing the audit to be done by two of its own members. City Center Camrose manager Carole May Cote, in an

Oct. 17 letter to the mayor and councillors, noted that full audits cost between $3,000 and $5,000, and that most accounting firms will not take on a small account with revenues of $65,000. "Many other non-profit groups have audits performed by two of its members," said Cote. The cost of hiring an external auditor would mean City Center

Camrose would have to increase its business levy by 10 per cent. That's money it would rather spend on beautifying the downtown. "Our business procedures are stellar and can be open for review at any time," said Cote. Council will be drafting a resolution on the matter to present to the 2013 Alberta Urban Municipalities Association.

Pack a.d. to hit the area by storm By Murray Green

The Pack a.d. snarls with strong vocals much like Joan Jett and Blackhearts did in its hey day. The two-piece band knows how to rock with a punk style. The band will be appearing on the Scalliwags Pub and Rum Bar stage on Nov. 17 at 8 p.m. With drummer Maya Miller and guitarist and vocalist Becky Black, the band puts out an incredible sound from only two members. Although some of the edge on the songs are headed off the mainstream chart, the band's energy tends to put you back for a second listen. If you want to calmly listen to a band and have a few pops while doing so, then maybe this isn't the band for you. However, if want to be hit with something new, Pack a.d. will keep you on the edge of your seat and wondering what words are going to be sung next. The band's fourth album Unpersons maximizes the talent that two members can produce. From East Vancouver, Pack a.d. released its debut album Tintype and then added Funeral Mixtape soon after. Both albums were released by Mint Records in 2008. The band mixes tribal beats, blues and punk garagerock to form a different sound. The third album We Kill Computers was released in 2010, to glowing reviews from people who wanted something off the mainstream. Showing no signs of slowing down, the band’s fourth album Unpersons came out in late 2011. It has received strong airplay on indie and campus radio.

Family violence an issue needing to be addressed By Dan Jensen

A recent study conducted by Lana Wells, Brenda Stratford chair, Faculty of Social Work, University of Calgary, revealed that, in every hour of every day, an Alberta woman will be the victim of some form of violence by an ex-spouse or an ex-partner. Statistics Canada reports that, in 2010, Alberta had the fifth highest rate of policereported intimate partner violence. Those are some of the realities the Camrose Family Violence Response Council (FVRC) will be highlighting during November's Family Violence Awareness Month. "Our goal is to draw attention to the issue of family violence," said FVRC chair Sheralyn Dobos. "We want to let people know that it is happening and that if they are involved in a situation where there is violence that there is help available." The FVRC will be placing red silhouettes throughout the community to represent a person who has been a victim of some sort of family violence. "We have community agencies and businesses who will host the silhouette on the property for a week, after which the silhouette will be moved to another location," said Dobos. "We have about 30 of them altogether so people will be seeing them all over." The response council will also be hosting a series of events, starting today (Nov. 6) with an elder abuse awareness prevention and intervention training seminar at Camrose and District Support Services (CDSS), followed by a Be CHIC (Confident, Healthy and In Control) girls' conference at Charlie Killam School Nov. 8. "We have 75 girls registered for the conference so far and are hoping for a few more," said Dobos. "It will be a great conference full of educational and active sessions, all of which are aimed at building the confidence of the participants and letting them know that they are beautiful the way they are." The conference is being made possible by community supporters, as well as a grant from the In Motion Network. "It includes a physical activity component because statistically, fitness levels in girls tend

Facts on Family Violence In 2010, Alberta had the fifth highest rate of police-reported intimate partner violence. The prevalence of self-reported spousal abuse in Alberta reveals that every hour of every day, a woman will be victim of some form of violence by an ex- spouse or ex-partner. According to the 2009 General Social Survey, spousal victims were more likely than other victims to be first victimized as a child, with 48 per cent of spousal victims reporting they were physically assaulted before the age of 15, and 75 per cent reporting they were first sexually victimized as a child. In 2010, Statistics Canada police-reported data indicates that dating partner violence was more prevalent than spousal violence. In fact, young people aged 12 to 14 represented almost one per cent of all dating partner violence with a rate of 56 victims per 100,000 population. Those aged 15 to 24 had a rate of 520 victims per 100,000, while those aged 25 to 34 had a rate of 739 per 100,000 population. In Canada, over 1.4 million people reported they had been either physically or sexually assaulted by their partner or spouse in the last five years. Just over 74,000 Albertans report having been either physically or sexually assaulted by a spouse or a partner in the last five years.

to drop off in the teenage years," said Dobos. "As a result of that they are faced with health issues of all kinds at an early age." The distribution of information will continue Dec. 5 and 6 when the FVRC, together with other Camrose agencies, present a family violence training session at the Norsemen Inn. "It is a two-day event designed to provide professionals in the community of Camrose and beyond with a look at how different aspects of our whole system respond to family violence," said Dobos. A Family Violence Prevention Month proclamation signed by Mayor Marshall Chalmers encourages everyone to help make Alberta violence-free in 2012 and beyond, and make a difference by creating a culture of support for those who are affected by family violence. "There is so much that people can do," said Dobos. "An investment of one dollar in a prevention program today can save $20 or more down the road in terms of dealing with the problem that has been created." Dobos said advances in technology and the ability of people to communicate easier and faster than before has led to an increase in the prevalence of mental and psychological abuse. "Texting and phone calls

can get completely out of hand. There was one instance of a woman who was enduring 600 calls a day from her ex partner while she was at work. Her job was as a switchboard operator so she couldn't ignore the phone." One of the basic reasons for much of the family abuse is a desire by one partner to control another. "The abuser wants to control his (or her) partner's comings and goings, controlling who he or she talks to and isolating him or her from family and friends," said Dobos. "The abuser may also resort to stalking – driving by the partner's place of work, leaving notes in places where they can easily be found, or making belittling comments." While most of us hear about family abuse happening in larger cities like Edmonton or Calgary, smaller communities like Camrose are not immune to the problem. In fact, in a community like Camrose where there is no public transit, it can sometimes be worse. "Often people with financial challenges will move out of the bigger centres where it is more expensive to live, but by moving out of those centres they lose access to some of the services they might have received," said Dobos. "So the farther then they get away from large centres, the

more at risk they can become. Based on the level of participation we have in interspousal violence treatment programs and counselling in Camrose, we can say there are a lot of troubled families who are dealing with this kind of issue." Research conducted over the last few years has shown that family violence and abuse can have devastating effects on children, even if they are not directly the ones who are the victims of that abuse. "The province has recog-

nized this and stated in legislation that a child who is in a home where family violence is going on is considered an abused child and is at risk," said Dobos. "It affects the development of the child's brain from early infancy." Dobos said anyone who sees or has reason to believe that a child is in an abusive situation has a legal responsibility to report that to the proper authorities. "The law applies to everyone, whether they be neighbours, lay people or professionals."

Response council working to counter abuse of the elderly By Dan Jensen

The Family Violence Response Council is working with Community Initiatives Against Family Violence, from Edmonton, to establish protocols that will assist Camrose and area agencies and organizations in responding to the problem of elder abuse. Family Violence Response Council chair Sheralyn Dobos said the protocols will set forth the most effective ways of identifying seniors who are experiencing abuse, educating seniors about elder abuse and their options for assistance, and referring seniors who have been abused to the appropriate intervention and postvention resources in the community.

"Often seniors who are abused are threatened with being placed in a home if they don't comply with the wishes of the abuser."

"We're trying to effectively serve the needs of people experiencing elder abuse by streamlining services, identifying gaps and minimizing duplication of services," said Dobos. "Rather than removing seniors from their homes and putting them in

care facilities, we want to work with them and family members or the persons responsible for the abuse to resolve the issues. Often seniors who are abused are threatened with being placed in a home if they don't comply with the wishes of the abuser." The Family Violence Response Council will be offering training programs in the new year that will provide information on types of abuse and possible contributing factors, possible indicators of family violence, screening for elder abuse, discussing elder abuse with clients, family violence and cultural considerations, safety planning, risk evaluation, limits to client confidentiality and reporting, bar-

riers to leaving, and resources and referrals. "The training programs will be done at a variety of levels, depending on where people see themselves fitting into the whole elder abuse situation," said Dobos. "We might have some customer service representatives at banks that may take level one training because it will raise the awareness of potential signs of abuse and help them recognize if someone is struggling with it." The project is a natural progression for the Family Violence Response Council, which four years ago developed protocols for local agencies regarding spousal abuse and family violence. "We have more than 20 local

agencies and organizations who have expressed interest in having protocols established," said Dobos. "The senior serving organizations in our community have come to realize that, regardless of the services they provide, elder abuse can have an enormous impact on the lives of all their clients. A senior whose life is consumed by abuse is less likely to achieve and maintain success and stability in areas such as health care, housing and recreation." Elder abuse is any form of mistreatment that results in harm or loss to an older person. According to Statistics Canada, the overall rate of police reported violence against seniors increased by 20 per cent between 1998 and 2005.

Queen's Jubilee Medal for Pinno

Erhard Pinno By Dan Jensen

The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal was presented to Erhard Pinno at a Kidney Care Conference in the Old Timers' Cabin, Edmonton, Oct. 28. Pinno was nominated by the Northern Alberta and The Territories Branch of the Kidney Foundation of Canada in recognition of his service as Camrose and area kidney campaign coordinator. "When I found out that I could nominate someone from this organization who has really made an impact I didn't hesitate," said branch executive director Flavia Robles. "Erhard's name came to me right away because I have seen what he has been able to achieve in a community, specifically Camrose, and how he has shown commitment, leadership, hard work ethic, belief and faith in everything that he does." Robles described Pinno as an active, healthy, community minded and educated individual who demonstrates that seniors, more than ever, are making important contributions to the welfare of their communities far into their years. "He is not only an excellent leader and a fund-raiser in an environment that is challenging, but he is able to support the mission and the goals of the Foundation in so many ways," said Robles. "He has well-developed leadership skills honed over a lifetime of teaching and college administration, and he shows this every day with compassion." Robles said Pinno possesses empathy for others and chooses to apply his talents to mitigate the suffering of others. "He is a role model not only for those who live and have been impacted with kidney disease, but to the lives of everyone he touches in his community and beyond. He makes his choices ensuring that they are going to be for the good of others." Pinno accepted the award in memory of his late wife, who lived with kidney disease for 20 years.

BRCF grant to CAFCL helps with training sessions By Murray Green

The Battle River Community Foundation (BRCF) granted the Camrose Association For Community Living (CAFCL) $2,000 to help with two training sessions. This grant is made possible by the Jeff Blaeser Memorial Fund, which was created to support charitable projects for the CAFCL. The first session is called Self Advocates Training. A self advocates group has been formed whereby people speak up about rights and responsibilities for themselves and others. These members are individuals with disabilities. This group is making a difference for people with disabilities and the community to which they belong. This will be formal training in the areas of leadership, public speaking, first aid, fire safety and home safety. The second session is called Safety Training for Parents. Mothers from the Teaching Independence and Parenting Support (TIPS) program have requested safety training. This

safety training relates to raising a child. It includes first aid, fire safety, car seat safety, storage of medication and hazardous materials and emergency response protocol. The Battle River Community Foundation exists to support

projects in East Central Alberta, such as CAFCL, which benefit local communities and have a positive impact on the future. Contributions to the BRCF are permanently invested in endowment funds, currently valued in excess of $6.7 million. Grants

from the Battle River Community Foundation are made possible through the generosity of individual donors and organizations that have created these endowment funds. The principal remains untouched and the income is made available annually to support projects in the Battle River area. Some grant funding is also made available by generous donors who make flow-through gifts to the Battle River Community Foundation. Since its founding in 1995, the BRCF has granted over $1,600,000 to worthwhile projects and initiatives in Camrose and throughout the Battle River area.

ATCO upgrading metres Submitted

ATCO Gas has begun upgrading the metre reading technology in Camrose. By the end of November, approximately 6,000 meters will be converted to this new, more efficient technology. “ATCO Gas has a longstanding history in the Camrose area,” says Bill Stephens, Senior Vice-President and General Manager, ATCO Gas. “Investing in this new technology further solidifies our commitment to delivering safe, reliable, cost-effective natural gas distribution service to our customers.” The new automated meter reading (AMR) system uses small, batterypowered radio transmitters that attach to existing natural gas meters. Customers will see contractors from Southern Cross Field Services and Itron Inc. in their neighbourhoods installing these transmitters for ATCO Gas. Installation of each AMR device will take about 10 minutes per meter. Indoor access may be needed if a natural gas meter is located inside a home or business. Once installation of these devices is complete, customers will no longer see meter readers walking through their neighbourhoods. Instead, ATCO Gas employees will be able to capture meter readings with a vehicle-mounted computer system as they pass by homes and businesses. In the future, ATCO Gas will only need access to natural gas meters for periodic maintenance. Contractors will carry ATCO Gas-issued photo identification and will produce it if asked. If customers have any questions or concerns about installation, they can visit atcogas. com/AMR or call 310-5678. Meter readers will be transitioned into new career opportunities within ATCO Gas.

Minor ball salutes outgoing president Dave Borman By Murray Green

Dave Borman has been synonymous with Camrose Minor Ball for the past 13 years. He served as a head coach in every age category and wore the hat of the president for a number of years as well. Dave will be stepping down as president in two weeks and his efforts will be honoured at the Camrose Minor Ball annual general meeting, Monday, November 19, 7 p.m. at the Camrose Aquatic Centre board room. "I will probably still be involved in ball, but not in an administrative role," said Dave. "We need someone to step in and continue with some projects and be willing to help with some new and fresh ideas. We need someone

with a connection to the younger players who are coming up. It's good to have younger adults come into the program to help coach and serve on the board." Dave showed up for a meeting shortly after he moved here and ended up on the board. However, he is glad he did. "I've been fortunate to have done some pretty cool things. When I first started, it was t-ball. Now they have a learn to play program that is focused on skills and fun," Dave said. "Three seasons ago I introduced Rally Cap for younger ones who were not ready for that program. It's not the full version that Baseball Canada has, but we made it work for the numbers that we have. We tried to have a coach

for every three players to keep it fun and have a learning atmosphere. We started with three teams of six players and it has grown to nine teams of seven. It gets a lot of parents involved in coaching." The Camrose teams have had a lot of success at the provincial level. "It's not all about winning, but we have had teams win medals. When other communities have had lower numbers, we have held our own and even grown a little on the baseball side," added Dave. "I would like to see the board maintain those numbers even though the ball numbers are down across the province." Ball provides a good recreation sport for children and

teaches them to be part of a team. "The way ball is set up, we can offer different types of programs for different players or parents. We have local teams and travelling teams who want to compete in provincials," explained Dave. "We have the number of players and coaches to provide those options." Several new volunteers are needed to ensure the program continues to operate successfully. "The program tends to run smoothly. We just need people to help with projects, or keep things going away from the diamond. It is a lot of fun and rewarding," added Dave. "Serving on the board is no where near as scary as it sounds.

County examines animal control

Your favourite shopping promotion is back!

Win a $1,500 Grand Prize

By Murray Green

Camrose County protective services manager Mike Kuzio presented councillors with six options for controlling dogs in the future. Officer Mike suggested that council defer the decision to the 2013 budget deliberations to be held November 28 to 30. He presented the options to council at a regular meeting on Oct. 23 at the Rosalind School. The agenda item was brought before council on Oct. 9, but council wanted to have more options to consider the cost factors in increasing animal control within the county. Officer Mike presented his options for further review. Option one is to renew the existing Alberta Animal Services (AAS) contract of two patrols a month from March 1 to Oct. 31 at a cost of $412 per patrol ($824 per month); one patrol a month from November 1 to February 28 at a cost of $412 per patrol. If special patrols are required within Camrose County, the bylaw officers charge $100 per hour and $25 per night boarding fee (maximum five nights). Approximate annual fee for just the patrols (not including seized or impounded animals or special patrols) would be about $8,240. Option two would be to sign a new contract with Alberta Animal Services with increased patrols. Six patrols a month from March 1 to Oct. 31 at a cost of $300 per patrol ($1,800 per month) and four patrols a month from Nov. 1 to Feb. 28 at a cost of $300 per patrol ($1,200 per month). "These added patrols could minimize the special patrols required by AAS officers, but are hard to determine," said officer Mike. Boarding fees would be $25 per night with a maximum of five nights). Approximate annual fee for just patrols (not including seized, impounded animals or special patrols would be about $19,200.

Inferno UK Soccer Tour a Success by Paul Stone


t was two years in the making and was well worth all the effort! In July fifteen Camrose area soccer players, along with three coaches and 18 family members, took their skills to the UK to play four friendly matches against similar girls in the UK. Through the help of Action Youth Soccer tours, it was a trip of a lifetime, and a trip these girls will never forget. The tour started in Calgary, boarding a flight to Manchester. Once in Manchester, we met our tour director, Paul Ashley, and boarded a luxury coach for a four-hour trip to Edinburgh for a three-night stay. Tours of Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, Stirling Castle and the Wallace monument were on the itinerary, as well as a friendly game with the Hibernian girls’ youth team out of Edinburgh. “Hibs” are a big club in Scotland with a men’s team in the Scottish premier league. They build youth teams and academies, providing youth a chance to further their football careers. The game was played on an artificial surface as their regular fields were closed due to the amount of rain that had accumulated over the past month. Hibs prevailed 2-1 in a very skilled game. The Inferno did not look out of place and had chances to tie it up. After each game, snacks and food were provided for both teams and parents. It was a chance to socialize, to get to know one anothers’ culture. It was also a chance for the coaches to talk about development and learn from each other. After the game and a chance to talk to some of the players from Hibs, we found that two of the girls play in the U12 program and did not

look out of place. It was good to see the girls from both teams socializing and talking with one another. This is what the world game is all about. After another night’s stay it was off to tour Old Trafford, host stadium of Manchester United. Following the stadium tour of one of the most famous football clubs in the world, it was onward to Chester for a couple of nights, and a trip into North Wales for another friendly game with a girls’ team from Caenarvon. On the way to our next friendly match, we stopped at a couple of seaside resorts. Conway and Llandudno are two little resort towns along the shores of the Irish Sea. With the wind howling and the rain falling, it was awfully quiet along the water front. The hearty crew from Camrose didn’t let the weather slow them down. Off to the game against Caenarvon, a small little mining town in North Wales. Once the game started, the girls noticed a different language being spoken on the field. The girls have never heard the Welsh language before. This was another culture lesson. The game ended up 3-2 to the host team. The game was very well played by both sides and the skill of the game was also exhibited. Socializing again followed in the team clubhouse and the hosts were gracious and pleasant to talk to, typical of the Welsh people. Back to Chester for some rest before another busy day. We left Chester to visit Warwick Castle which dates back to 1066, and Stratford-upon-Avon, birthplace of William Shakespeare, before arriving at the new Jubilee Stadium in Evesham for a match against the local girls’ team. This would be

the third match played on these new grounds and it was quite an honour to be part of their new stadium opening. The stadium was good to the Inferno girls as they picked up their first win, a convincing 4-2. The girls played superbly, as in the previous matches, but this time they were rewarded for their efforts. Back on the bus, we went for the last leg of our marathon tour in London. London Eye, London Tower, Piccadilly Circus, the Tube, Buckingham Palace, Changing of the Guard, Westminster Abbey, 10 Downing Street, Big Ben and Houses of Parliament were all part of the typical London sights taken in by the group. Another match was also in the works with a team in Reading. The Woodley girls’ team was next for the Inferno girls. Down 2-nil at the half, it didn’t look good for the Inferno. But after a long day of touring and getting to the game late, the girls needed half-time to regroup. In the second half, the girls played with the skills they are capable of and almost pulled off another win. The game ended 3-2 with much of the second half played in the Woodley end. It was a spirited affair to say the least and was a fantastic effort in the end. The tour group had one more day in London and then it was back to reality and home. A big thanks goes to the many local community sponsors, parents and players for making this trip an incredible experience. Seeing what football is like in England made a major impression on all the travelers and we were very pleased and honoured to have represented Camrose and Canada on and off the field.

Many thanks to these and other sponsors who made it possible… Canadian Lutheran Bible Institute

November Retrospective Central Agencies Home of the Week Arts Show features Ziegler Great location for your next home By Jane Cherry-Lemire Camrose Arts Director

The Chuck MacLean Arts Centre is staging a November retrospective art show that will feature local artist Karin Ziegler. Karin was born in Nordegg but now calls Camrose home. She is a member of the Mirror Lake Art Club and enjoys the time spent there. She mentions in her biography that her journey as an artist was inspired by the beauty of the Peace Country and the panoramic views she enjoyed with her family. This inspiration took her to enroll in the fundamental art courses offered by Fairview College and continued her training with a variety of workshops. Before moving to Camrose in 1992 she began painting on a weekly basis with a Group of Nine called the Mat Hatters where ideas, air excursions and crazy hats were all part of the experience. Landscapes, flowers, skies, textures and colours that surround us are what inspires her to create in realism, abstract, surrealism art works. Karin has chosen to express her artistic talent through watercolours, inks, pastels, encaustic wax, acrylic, silks, oil and photography. She finds each medium creates a different excitement depending on what she is trying to accomplish. Some of her teachers have been Zoltan Szabo, Tom Lynch, Maxine Masterfield, Brian Atyeo, Jack Reid, Marilyn Kinsella, Jim Trelevan, Marija Petrisevic, Sherry Gallager, Christopher Schink. She feels very privileged to have

had the opportunity to learn from each of her instructors. Karin has participated and been accepted in juried art shows in Peace River, Calgary, Fairview, Lethbridge, ACACA district shows, Red Deer, three consecutive Juried International Art Shows in Toronto, Ontario, Medicine Hat Museum and Art Gallery, the Jurorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice Award for Southern Zone ACACA and the Jean Stephanson Award in Red Deer. She received gold and silver medals in 2001 in the Alberta Seniors Games. Karin has also had solo shows at the Devonian Gardens, Calgary; Conceptions Gallery, Calgary, Penelopeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gallery, Lethbridge; Medicine Hat Museum and Art Gallery; Java Bytes Internet CafĂŠ, and two art shows with the Mad Hatters at the Cultural Centre in Medicine Hat. She has also displayed her works in the Camrose Art Walk and Okotoks art display. Karinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work has been purchased by Edmonton Laboratories, Shell Oil, Lethbridge Regional Hospital, Peace River Township, Alberta Foundation for the Arts, Exalta Transport for a calendar, Medicine Hat, as well as private collections internationally â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Saudi Arabia, Russia, England, New Zealand, USA, Australia and locally in Alberta. Karinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show if free and will be on display until noon on November 29th. The Chuck MacLean Arts Centre is generally open from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. (Monday through Friday), weekend hours are based on bookings so call ahead for times 780-672-9949.

Animal control examined by County Continued from page 21

Option three would be to sign a new contract with Old MacDonald Kennels. They would have two patrols a month from March 1 to Oct. 31 at a cost of $85 per patrol ($170 per month) and one patrol a month from Nov. 1 to Feb. 28 at a cost of $85 per patrol. Approximate annual fee for just patrols (not including seized, impounded animals or special patrols would be $1,700. Option four would be to sign a new contract with Old MacDonald Kennels with increased patrol of six patrols a month from March 1 to Oct. 31 at a cost of $85 per patrol ($510 per month) and four patrols a month from Nov. 1 to Feb. 28 at a cost of $85 per patrol ($340 per month). Approximate annual fee for just patrols (not including seized, impounded animals or special patrols would be $5,440. "Option five would be for Camrose County to create a new position and hire its own bylaw

enforcement officer and share a kennel with the City of Camrose," said officer Mike. "However, no kennels are available at this time in the Camrose area. We could possibly work with the city in the future to come up with a solution to the lack of animal kennels or pounds. Option six would be that Camrose County create a new position for its own bylaw enforcement officer and utilize Old MacDonald Kennels. It still would be $25 per night boarding fee. Initial costs to hire a full-time bylaw enforcement officer is a salary of $42,500 to $61,000 plus benefits, uniforms $1,000, personal equipment of dog spray and animal pole $200, and light bar $2,500. Other costs such as radio/ GPS, vehicle decals, canopy and cages would be added. "Hiring a full-time bylaw officer would not only be a benefit for dog control, but also for other county bylaws. Nuisance property complaints are increasing every year and consuming

a lot of our peace officer's time and efforts," said officer Mike. "Protective services is also receiving a lot of parking complaints from residences down at Pelican Point. This bylaw officer would be able to enforce all county bylaws, while at the same time, alleviate some of the workload from our current peace officers to allow them to conduct more traffic related duties and enforcement." This new bylaw officer position will also be a benefit to the county ratepayers. "More complaints and concerns are voiced by county residents every year, which makes it difficult for officers to respond and investigate each complaint in a suitable time frame. As the protective services department gets busier, the need for more man power increases. This position will enable protective services better to serve the ratepayers in a more timely and effective manner," said officer Mike. The item was deferred to the budget process.

Vandale lifts Kodiaks over Grizzlys in a wild contest By Murray Green

Luc Vandale emerged from the Camrose Kodiaks' den to score a goal and add four assists to lead his pack to a 6-5 victory over the Olds Grizzlys on Oct. 26. The forward assisted on all three Camrose goals in the wild first period. When the ice was cleared, the Grizzlys were up 4-3. Both teams added some defence in the second and the Kodiaks out scored their rival bears 2-1 to knot the game at 5-5. "It was one of those games that hockey players wish they had more often," said a beaming Luc. "Everything I touched went in, or the player I passed to made the play. Even if it looked like a harmless play, it ended up being a scoring play." The only goal that mattered in the third period came off Luc's stick to break the tie. "Last game was definitely one of my highlights in junior," said Luc on his five-point game." Both squads fired 27 shots on goal. Matt Gibney started in goal for Camrose and stopped two of five shots. Devin McDonald came in to settle things down and he turned aside 20 of 22 shots. "The last five games or so, our line (with Nolan Marshall and Brett Njaa) has really been clicking. I've played with Nolan for a few years, so we know where each other is going to be on the ice," Luc said. "We see each other at the right times and we connected, along with Brett, in the Olds game." Despite the line's prowess, the club seemed snake bitten by being down 4-3. "We were down 4-1 and the coach called a time out to rally the boys," explained Luc. "We scored a power play goal late in the period and we built up from that momentum for the rest of the game." The relentless bears fought back to get into the game. "We worked hard and never quit. We just have to work on our first periods," said Luc. "That game showed our character. We want to be remembered as a team that never quits." Two goals in the opening period by the Drayton Valley Thunder sent a message to the Kodiaks to start playing hockey or they were going to be embarrassed. "Unfortunately, we couldn't mount another Cinderella comeback again. It was a quick 2-0 lead in the first for Drayton and again we fought back, but we didn't score enough this time," said Luc. "We can't be giving the first periods away. I'm not a loud voice in the dressing room. I like to lead by example on the ice. Our line is going to play harder, earlier in the game. It's not just one guy, it's

20 guys working hard together that is going to turn this around for us." Camrose took over the play in the last two frames, leading in shots 26-15, but the team had trouble scoring on netminder Marc Olivier Daigle. He made 31 of 32 saves. In the Camrose net, McDonald stopped 26 of 28 and the Thunder added an empty net marker. Defenceman Jonathan Lashyn garnered the only tally for the Kodiaks. "Our defensive system is starting to come around. We are not perfect yet. Every practice we are spending a half an hour in our defensive zone. Coach says defence wins championships and we are working on it," said Luc. Camrose heads off on another five-game road series before playing at home on Nov. 29 when the Drumheller Dragons arrive at the EnCana Arena. The Kodiaks also take on the Calgary Canucks on Nov. 30 in a home contest. Both games start at 7:30 p.m.

Toyota Venza Turning ordinary into an experience

Geoffrey Skakun Toyota City By Dan Jensen

ture, fuel economy, trip information and other important details.

The 2013 Toyota Venza at Toyota City, Wetaskiwin, is one of those rare vehicles that takes the ordinary drive and turns it into an experience. Venza is the definition of style, innovation and versatility. It has the fuel efficiency and performance you would expect from Toyota, available AWD on both the four-cylinder and six-cylinder engines, advanced audio and multi media systems, and plenty of room for both passengers and cargo. Like every other Toyota on the road in Canada today it was built to make good things better.

Drive with confidence

Always ready for the road

Venza’s 182 horsepower four-cylinder and 268 horsepower six cylinder engines are connected to a sixspeed super electronically controlled transmission that helps manage the engine’s power. This means Venza will always offer smooth, seamless shifts and excellent fuel efficiency. Estimated fuel ratings are a very impressive 10.6 litres per 100 km in the city and 6.9 litres per 100 km on the highway. Venza's available All-Wheel Drive will help enhance traction, no matter what the season. Active torque control monitors each wheel and distributes the engine’s power to the appropriate wheel at the appropriate time. This advanced technology helps to optimize traction on any surface, wet or dry. Hill-start Assist Control will help prevent the vehicle from rolling backward. Once activated, the system holds the brakes for approximately three seconds as the driver switches from the brake pedal to the accelerator. When it comes to manoeuverability, Venza doesn't fall short. With a low centre of gravity you'll get surprisingly precise handling, which is pretty comforting whenever you're driving in a big city. Sit back and relax

Whether you’re picking up groceries, taking out the dog or going on a road trip with friends, Venza is ready for it all. The driver's seat has eight-way power adjusters to make your drive as comfortable as it can be. The leather package includes heated driver and front passenger seats with seat-mounted high and low temperature setting and, of course, leather seat surfaces. Passengers sitting in the rear can have a truly relaxed trip with Venza’s reclining seats.

With the pull of a latch, Venza’s rear 60/40 split seats fold flat to reveal an impressive 1.99 cubic metres (70.1 cubic feet) of cargo space. The optional power lift gate has jam protection, which makes packing for a trip a whole lot easier. Venza's centre armrest can be slid back to reveal a storage tray and a deep storage compartment. Under the sliding cup-holder lid is another large storage compartment illuminated by LEDs, and complete with a 12 V auxiliary power outlet. Venza’s centre console comes complete with rearfacing vents, which are operated by the dual zone climate control system. This system also features an air filter that traps dust and other airborne particles. Sit back and look at the stars through the available power tilt/slide moonroof above the front seats and a panoramic glass roof above the rear seats. Technology

Venza is packed with advanced technology that is designed to make your life easier. The Display Audio System features a 6.1-inch touch-screen with Bluetooth®3 wireless music streaming, and a unique “text to voice” feature that converts text messages from your phone into voice messages, which play through the vehicle’s speaker system. The iPod®/MP3 Player Holder with USB port and auxiliary audio jack lets you dock your iPod® or MP3 player in the special holder in the centre console, then plug it in via the USB port. The Multi-Information LCD Display provides data such as climate control settings, outside tempera-

When it comes to building automobiles, safety is Toyota’s primary concern. Venza is available with a backup camera located above the rear licence plate. When in reverse, the camera displays the area behind the vehicle that’s visible to the camera on the Display Audio touch-screen. The blind-spot convex mirrors extend your field of view on both the left and right side of the vehicle, allowing you to see if another car is approaching from either side. A sensor located behind the rearview mirror helps enhance visibility at night by detecting oncoming vehicles and, depending on the circumstances, automatically switches your high beams off and on. Front and rear energy-absorbing crumple zones and a collapsible steering column are designed to help dissipate impact force in a collision. Venza comes standard with seven airbags, including a driver and front passenger airbag, a driver’s knee airbag, front seat-mounted side airbags for the front occupants and front and rear side curtain airbags. Driver and front passenger seatbelts feature pretensioners with force limiters, along with adjustable shoulder anchors. Vehicle stability control helps prevent slips and loss of traction by reducing engine power and applying the brake force to the wheels that need it. Traction control helps maintain traction on wet, icy, loose or uneven surfaces by applying brake force to the spinning wheel(s). The anti-lock brake system prevents brakes from locking up by “pulsing” brake pressure to each wheel to help you stay in control in emergency braking situations. Electronic brake-force distribution redistributes brake force to help keep the rear wheels from locking up during sudden braking situations. Smart Stop technology is designed to reduce engine power when the brake is firmly applied helping to bring the vehicle to a stop, even if the accelerator pedal is fully depressed.

You can see the 2012 Toyota Venza at Toyota City, 4120-56 Street, Wetaskiwin. Phone 780-352-2225 and ask for one of the friendly sales professionals.

Legislature Report Doug Griffiths, MLA, Battle River - Wainwright

Highway 63 between Grassland and Fort McMurray will be fully twinned by fall 2016. Every Albertan will benefit from this project for years to come because of the tremendous contribution the oil sands make to Alberta’s economy. Government made this exciting commitment while announcing a newly-twinned 36-kilometre section of the highway north of Wandering River on October 19. The Alberta government will invest $778 million over the next four years to twin the remaining stretch of the two-lane roadway and $318 million over six years to enhance Highway 881. This is about finding solutions for the whole region to ensure better access to the oilsands. Making Highway 63 more user-friendly is one of several ways government enhances traffic safety, improves emergency response, and promotes economic development in the Highway 63 region. These ideas were explored in the MLA report on Highway 63 that was released in June. This announcement is an opportunity to congratulate the people and organizations that are dedicated to safer and better driving in the province. These organizations have made a difference in helping to make our roads safer. Because of the significant economic impact of the oilsands, it also is about investing in Albertans in all corners of the province.

Augustana conquers Trojans in Calgary By Murray Green The Augustana Vikings hockey club played like warriors to earn three out of four points from the SAIT Trojans on Oct. 26 and 27. In the first game of the twogame series, Augustana was led by captain Dan Hope. He netted the equalizer and then set up Dane Bonish for the winner. Brendan Lamb scored the first tally for the Vikings. Goalie Joel Danyluk stopped 23 of 25 shots to receive the win. The Vikings fired 28 shots at the SAIT net. Overtime didn't solve a 3-3 deadlock in the rematch at the EnCana Arena on Saturday evening. Augustana went up in the middle of the third period, only to have the Trojans reply a minute later. Craig Cornelsen scored twice and Bonish chipped in with a single marker for the Vikings. "It's great playing in Camrose this year because it is a much deeper team," said Craig, a former Briercrest Clipper. "The roster is packed with a lot more experience and players have junior-A hockey experience, so the team has more depth." Craig has noticed the difference in practices. "The higher level of competition is always there. Execution is higher and the players are quicker," added Craig. "With more experience, guys are there to push you or help pull you along. It makes a big difference. The competitive nature is the biggest thing I notice." The forward was looked on as a sniper with Briercrest. In Camrose, he has shared the load with other Vikings. "I'm playing with some pretty talented guys. Dan Hope is obviously a special player and he has been setting me up. Having the opportunity to play on the power play has allowed me to chip in with some goals," added Craig. Paul Kolida took his turn in net for the Vikings and stopped

33 of 36 shots in 65 minutes. Former Camrose Kodiaks netminder Brayden Hopfe turned aside 27 of 30 shots for SAIT. The Trojans only took six penalties on the night as they respected the Augustana power play. However, the Vikings still managed to collect two goals with the man advantage. "I've got the dates circled (Nov. 16 and 17) on the calendar when we play Briercrest," said Craig. "It will feel a bit weird because I spend three years there. I left a big piece of my heart there and it will be different not dressing in blue and gold. Once the game starts, it will be like any other game." Craig has another year left of eligibility after this season and intends on coming back to the Vikings. "I'm looking forward to playing in some playoff games, something I haven't done yet in the ACAC." The Keyano Huskies visit for a two game series on Nov. 9 and 10. Action starts at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and 2 p.m. on Saturday in the EnCana Arena. Volleyball Augustana accomplished two feats they haven't been able to do since they joined the Alberta College Athletic Conference a few years ago. Not only did the women's squad win a match, but the team swept a series. The Vikings used four games to tame the Keyano Huskies 25-17, 25-18, 22-25 and 25-17 to open the season with a victory. Laura Kvenshagen led the Vikings with 12 kills, two aces and 15 digs. Keri Acorn added 10 kills and 23 digs, while Jill Acorn collected 11 kills and Catherine Laskosky added 13 digs. In the rematch, the Vikings won in three straight games 25-20, 26-24 and 25-18 in Camrose. Alana Fahlman led the team with six kills, four aces and four blocks. Kvenshagen and Keri Acorn recorded five kills and nine digs each.

Nazheef Gangji led the Vikings with 14 kills, two aces and three digs in the first set. Thomas Regier chipped in with 13 digs and Matt Yoder blocked six rallies. Regier achieved the same

number of digs in the second outing to provide steady defence.

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Michelle Gillett of Hair Image gives D and D Vehicles Sales employee Louis Dyck a shave to launch Movember. The month of November is dedicated to prostate cancer and the automotive industry within the city is collecting funds to help with cancer research.

D and D Vehicles journeyman mechanic Louis Dyck shaved his moustache and beard to raise funds and awareness. November, better known as "Movember," is prostate cancer awareness month. "I wanted to get in on Movember and support it. I've had my moustache and goatee for 21 years. My oldest son is 18 years old and has never seen me without them," explained Louis. "I wanted to raise some money before Movember arrived and generate as much funds as I can in 15 days and send it in for prostate cancer research." Louis already exceeded his goal before he was shaved by Michelle Gillett of Hair Image at the dealership. "My goal was to raise $1,000 and I've already hit $1,390," said Louis proudly. "My new goal is $1,500 by the end of the day." It won't take Louis long to reach that mark. "I've had tremendous support from my co-workers, family and the community. Everyone has been generous and it has been fabulous," said Louis. "My father had prostate cancer and so did one of my friends. This is my way of helping them. They both survived, but in different ways. One had surgery and the other went through treatments. They are both surviving, but this hits a little close to home for me. I thought if I'm going to shave it off, I might as well raise some money." Camrose Chrysler manager Mike Rodin is also raising funds in honour of his father. "There are 16 employees here participating in Movember. We talked about doing something a couple of weeks before we heard about the contest, but when we heard about the Camrose Booster promotion, we jumped at it. I was all for it because I lost my dad three years ago to prostate cancer," said Mike. "It's something that is close to my heart. When I went around to ask the boys if they wanted in and they heard about how I lost my dad, they wanted in as well. To have 16 employees involved in raising money for prostate cancer shows what kind of staff we have here." The staff includes Mike Cuthbert who hasn't shaved his moustache in 35 years and John Wigston who hasn't in 40 years. "John's adult daughters haven't seen him without a moustache, so it shows the commitment they have to help a worthy cause," added Mike. "The experience I had with my dad was a lot different than what I expected it to be. When he was first diagnosed, he agreed to have surgery. By the time it was diagnosed and the time it came for surgery, it had spread," explained Mike. "They didn't go ahead because the doctor didn't want to ruin his quality of life. They went the hormone route and he added 12 years to his life. The first 10 to 11 years he had a pretty good life and he enjoyed his time with his family." Continued on page 40

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.

Quinnipiac next stop for Gadoury By Murray Green

Camrose Kodiaks' forward Nelson Gadoury has chosen to attend the University of Quinnipiac and play for the Bobcats after his stint in the Rose City. Nelson waited until his tryouts were complete for Team Canada West for the World Junior A Challenge before he made his decision to go to Hamden, Connecticut. The university is located between New York and Boston. "The Kodiaks are extremely happy for Nelson and his family and now the real fun begins as he prepares himself for the next level," said Kodiaks' general manager and coach Boris Rybalka. Bobcats' coach Reid Cashman was the first to see Nelson and the player gives a lot of credit to him on his trip down to Quinnipiac. "It was amazing. The community and the campus are great and I am excited about the future and me becoming a Bobcat and being part of their tradition and being a leader when I am there," said an excited Nelson.

The CAMROSE BOOSTER November 6, 2012

By Murray Green The University of Alberta, Augustana campus cross-country runners may not have won medals at the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference championships, but several athletes earned a spot on the team travelling to Quebec for the nationals. The ACAC finals were held in Camrose at the trials below the Stoney Creek Centre on a snowy and icy track on Oct. 27. "It was cold, and there was some snow on the course, but our runners were prepared for the conditions. It's always a benefit to be running on your home course," said Vikings assistant coach Robert Renman. "Our runners did very well, both men and women finished in fourth place in the team events. Although we didn't earn a medal this time, it was a very close race for medals, and we are proud of our team's performances." In the men's race, Devin Woodland broke away from the rest of the field at about six kilometres (in the eight km event) into the race. He was followed in second by Kieran McDonald, a Red Deer College teammate. He was closing fast on the last 500 meters, but Devin managed to hold on to the lead. "Devin ran for Augustana during the 2009 season. Kieran Baird (29:23) ran a very strong race for Augustana, placing ninth in a strong field of runners," informed Robert. Hans Asfeldt of the Vikings placed 13th, Andrew Brisbin was 15th, Alex Frost crossed the line in 21st, Nick Lenko was 39th, Sasha Eccleston placed 45th and Taylor Bulger was 55th. In the women's race, Concordia's Marriya Jenkins dominated the race, and won by over a minute over the five km course. "Augustana's Kalli Green, who has been getting faster all season, had an excellent race and finished in sixth place, earning her a spot on the All-conference team," Robert said. "We now look forward to the CCAA Cross-country Running Open Championship, hosted by Champlain College in St. Lambert, Quebec. The races will be held on Nov. 10. Kalli led the Vikings with a time of 21 minutes even. Lauren Brookes came in at 22nd place, and was followed by her teammates Maja Zimmerman and Jennifer Paterson in 23rd and 24th place. Victoria Frivold was 28th and Keely MacCulloch was 29th. Other Vikings to run were Emma Norris, Karly Johnson, Davis Alton, Taya Hoar, Ilona Gyapay, Brianna Schultz, Sarah McCrae and Johanna Ferrie. Going to Quebec for the nationals are Kalli Green, Lauren Brookes, Maja Zimmerman and Jennifer Paterson on the women's squad. Kieran Baird, Hans Asfeldt, Andrew Brisbin and Ryan Burlingame will be wearing the Vikings' colours in the men's event.

Volleyball girls aim for an earned provincial berth By Murray Green

The Camrose Composite High School senior girls' volleyball club split a two-match series with Rocky Mountain House and Red Deer's Lindsay Thurber. CCHS defeated Rocky Mountain House in three straight games and fought hard in a fiveset loss to the 4A school from Red Deer on Oct. 24. "Red Deer is a step from us, so it was a good test for us," said Bradi Lorenz. "Knowing we can play with a 4A school gives us confidence. We know we are as good as any other team. That helps us when we go into tournaments." "It was good practice against a tougher team to help us prepare for provincials," added Brittany Voss. The team entered the Morinville tournament, but ran into a rash of injuries. "We played 10 games and ended up losing the consolation semifinal to Peace Wapiti, who is one of the stronger teams from the north," explained Bradi. "The games were like 25-23 and 25-23. It's a team we could see again in provincials." The 6-4 CCHS Trojans are currently in third place in a league that will send two teams to provincials. "The teams that are ahead of us, we had close games with," said Brittany. "We are working on basics in practice. We are pretty banged up now with injuries. We want to get everyone healthy for playoffs and provincials," said Bradi. CCHS will be hosting the 3A girls' provincials at both Augustana and the high school gyms on Nov. 22 to 24. Twelve teams from across the province will be battling for the gold medals.
