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. Members of the Royal Canadian Legion and volunteers do a remarkable job of encouraging all of us to 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. The Royal Canadian Legion does great work providing assistance to those who have served our country in military fashion. In addition, the Legion also maintains a leading role in the creation and care of memorials which recognize the contributions and valour of our veterans and ex-service members. The Royal Canadian Legion’s mandate and dedication ensures the preservation of the records and memories of our fallen heroes and returning veterans continue in perpetuity. The Legion’s major source of funding to accomplish the organization’s important work is the annual Poppy Campaign. Please consider making a generous contribution and wear your poppy this week with pride.

Legion Remembrance Day Service held 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 Friday, 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 Light Horse (Royal Canadians) to talk about his or her experience serving in Afghanistan," said Legion service organizer Bill Hart. 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 w reath. 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 mem-

bers and special guests, such as cadets and scouts, until 2 p.m. Then the Legion will be open

to everyone. Entertainment featuring Hoffman and Brown will be held in the hall.

For more information about Remembrance Day or any other Legion matters, call the Cam-

rose branch at 780-672-3325. It is located at 5703-48 Avenue in Camrose.

Legion community involvement is important to Camrose By Murray Green

The Camrose branch of the Royal Canadian Legion was started back in 1928. It has been a v ery important community member during the next 83 years. "It was originally formed by First World War service men 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. "There is still a section of the community that

believes we are a bunch of veterans sitting around drinking and exchanging war stories. That isn't the case. 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 they have added Thursday 7 p.m. bingos in the Camrose Legion Memorial Hall that are open to everyone.

Veterans' stories are now being collected in a three-edition book called Alberta and Northwest Territories Command Military Service Recognition. The branch encourages all veterans and families to submit their information for the fourth 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.

Legion selects new board for next term

By Murray Green

The Camrose branch of the Royal Canadian Legion named its new executive for the 2011–12 term at a reg ular meeting on October 25. They will be installed at the November meeting. Bill Hart moves to the past president position and Gord Minnes is the incoming president, while Gerry Czapp agreed to serve as vice-president. The second vice-president position is currently vacant. Secretary Bev Thompson will continue to fill her past position and Bill Hart has added the treasurer title to his duties. David Rurka will serve as the sergeant-at-arms. Camrose United Church minister Mary Ann Pastuck is the padre. Named to the executive board are Rose Hart, Len Pettitt, Bob Burt, Mavis Empey, Pat McTavish and Gord McTavish. Ladies' Auxiliary

The Camrose branch of the Royal Canadian Legion colour party prepares to raise the flags prior to the Remembrance Day service at the Camrose Regional Exhibition last year.

Grace Torpe is t he incoming president and Jean Enger is the Ladies' Auxiliary past presi-

dent. Donna Coombs and Louisa Undin agreed to serve as vicepresidents. Sheila Emmott-Boullion is the treasurer and Jennifer Coombs is the secretary.

The Memorial Hall, which seats abut 200 people, and the board room, which seats about 30 to 35, are available for bookings by members or non-members.

Bawlf students fine after collision By Dan Jensen

A Bawlf School student and a driver of a pickup were sent to St. Mary's Hospital by ambulance following a F riday afternoon accident involving a Battle River School Division school bus. "The student was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure and was released after being checked," said BRSD communications officer Diane Hutchinson. There were no apparent injuries to the other 15 students on the bus or the driver. "The students left the scene in the company of their parents or were delivered home," stated Hutchinson. Some of the parents had their children checked by medical staff over the weekend. The driver of the pickup was taken to hospital by ambulance on a spinal board. The accident occurred at the intersection of Highway 26 and Range Road 183. The bus was about to make a left turn when it was struck from behind by a passenger truck, which had been

propelled forward after a se mi truck ran into it from behind. "The damage to the school bus was not that bad," said Hutchinson. "In fact the school bus was the least damaged of all three of the vehicles involved. It proves that BRSD

buses are meant to withstand an impact." Students on the bus ranged from Grade 3 to high school age. The Camrose RCMP detachment was still investigating the accident as of Monday afternoon. Charges are pending.

Legion serves veterans and promotes remembrance The mission of The Royal Canadian Legion is “to serve veterans and their dependants, to promote Remembrance, and to act in the service of Canada and its communities.” In essence, the purposes and objectives of the Legion were born of the need to further the spirit of comradeship and mutual assistance among all who have served and to never forget the deeds of the fallen. It is paramount that the Legion strives to pass on these

goals and traditions to the families and descendants of our exservice personnel and to raise this awareness among all Canadians. The major source of funding for the Legion to accomplish this most important work is t he annual Poppy Campaign, the foundation of the Remembrance Program. It is the generosity of Canadians that enables the Legion to ensure that our veterans and their dependants are

cared for and treated with the respect that they deserve. This November campaign, which sees Poppies distributed to Canadians of all ages, serves to perpetuate Remembrance by ensuring that the memory and sacrifices of our war veterans are never forgotten. The Legion also maintains a leading role in the creation and care of memorials to the contributions and valour of our veterans and ex-service members. It is deeply honoured and proud

to accept the task of organizing Remembrance ceremonies throughout the country, including the National Remembrance Day ceremony in Ottawa. In addition, working in concert with other veterans’ organizations and the Canadian government, the Legion has vowed to ensure that the preservation of the records and memories of our fallen heroes and returning veterans continues in perpetuity. The Royal Canadian Legion

Remembrance Day thoughts Remembrance Day, for me, is o ne of the most thoughtprovoking days of the year. Canadians observe two minutes of silence to honour as heroes the men and women who have died in World War I, World War II, Korea, Afghanistan, several peace-keeping missions and other military operations, all in defence of what we deemed to be good over evil. We also pay tribute to all the other men and women who have served, and are even now serving, at significant risk to their personal safety and well-being. As always, we have heartfelt sympathy for the families who have lost loved ones in wars, or have endured long stressful days, weeks and months of separation. Remembrance Day is thought-provoking because it raises the question: Does war accomplish its objective? World War I was labeled “the war to end wars’; it didn’t. Only 20 years later, World War II broke out – the bloodiest and most destructive in all of history. That war ended in 1945 and, thankfully, there hasn’t been a w orld war since. It is d isappointing, however, that smaller military engagements continue to kill people and destroy life-sustaining crops and other property. Will human beings ever learn to collaborate constructively and avoid war? I believe they will, eventually, thanks to gradual shifts in public opinion and the emergence of effective diplomats everywhere, who preach as well as exemplify reconciliation and peaceful negotiation. Many nations keep trying to work together peacefully. Following the carnage of World War I, t he League of Nations was formed to promote international peace and security by not resorting to war. It failed – but a seed was planted. Following the unimaginable, massive ruin and destruction in both Europe and Japan in World War II, the United Nations (UN) was created to achieve world peace through facilitating cooperation in international law and security, economic development, social progress and human rights. The UN has its flaws but it has also accumulated measurable successes in the sixtyplus years of its existence. The European Union (EU) was created by European politicians who were determined to prevent future violent conflicts by forging closer economic and industrial cooperation. As I write this column, the EU is e nduring a m oment of serious crisis but, whatever the outcome, and it could be dire, I do not foresee European countries at war with one another. My hope lies in the vision of Alfred Nobel who established the Nobel Peace Award which is presented to those who have done the best work to promote fraternity among nations, reduction of military might, and holding of peace congresses. My hope lies in the views expressed by Canada’s Lester B. Pearson, highly respected world diplomat and former leader of the Liberal Opposition in the House of Commons, when he humbly accepted a Nobel Peace Prize in 1957. He said, “Of all our dreams today there is non more important – or so hard to realize – than that of peace in the world. May we never lose our faith in it or our resolve to do everything that can be done to convert it one day into reality." Pearson concluded with a quote from Henrik Ibsen, 19th century Norwegian playwright, who wrote: ”There are three Empires. First there is the Empire which was founded on the tree of knowledge. Then there is the Empire founded on the tree of the Cross. The third is still a secret Empire which will be founded on the tree of knowledge and the tree of the Cross – brought together.” Pearson concluded his acceptance speech saying, “The award I have received today ... is a renewed incentive to work with all other men of good will in the world for the triumph of Ibsen’s third Empire, that of the Empire of Peace.” Though we stumble and sometimes even fail in our efforts to keep the peace, let us love one another, and keep on trying – as do all of the Nobel Peace Prize recipients!

was honoured to initiate and coordinate the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier for the Centennial in 2000 and to suggest the declaration of 2005 as The Year of the Veteran. These and other commemorative projects and activities led by The Royal Canadian Legion have been welcomed by Canadians who have never hesitated to demonstrate their support in acknowledging the debt that is owed to those who sacrifice so much.

Letters to third parties are not accepted. The Camrose Booster may edit for clarity, legality, personal abuse, good taste, public interest and availability of space. The Camrose Booster thanks you for your interest in the letters page and encourages your comments. Dear Editor:

In my last letter, I made a small error when quoting the number of seats that Quebec would get in the 30 extra seats that will be created. In my opening statement, I said that Quebec would get 15 seats. I should have

said three seats. I did say that later when I was writing about Quebec. I am so sorry for that error. I was shocked to hear that the 700 million dollar fire in Slave Lake might have been deliberately set. The Alberta government has handed the files over to the RCMP for a further investigation. T he Alberta government took five months in order to come to that conclusion. If that is the case, I really feel so sorry for all those who had lost their homes and their memories. It is so h eartless for anybody to set fire to an entire town. People lost more than their homes. Money can never replace memories or things that could never be replaced. I f elt so sh ocked when I read this on line. I rea lly hope that the person or people responsible will be brought to justice.

Soon will be the Alberta election. Who knows when it will be held? I just would like to encourage everybody to go out and vote. This is a p rivilege and not a right. In many places in the world, many people do not have that privilege. Even if you do not know too much about politics. Please vote for some party. Even if it is for a party who may not have a chance. You can make a d ifference by just one vote. Maybe your vote might be the difference of having one party over another party? Who knows? In some countries, many people travel miles under threat of losing their lives. W hat cost do you have to pay in order to vote? Just something to think about. Lorne Vanderwoude Camrose

Camrose Chamber of Commerce past president Shauna Feth presented the BRAED Business Appreciation Award to Lisa Rohr of Business IQ Training. By Dan Jensen

The Battle River Alliance for Economic Development Business Appreciation Award was presented to Business IQ Training at the Camrose Chamber of Commerce Small Business Awards Banquet Oct. 19. Owned and operated by Lisa Rohr, Business IQ Training provides a variety of essential training services in the areas of accounting, basic and technical computer training and business and personal development. "Business IQ Training provides a h ands on approach in a very thriving business practice, providing an innovative and effective method to help individuals and businesses achieve their own success," said a summary read by Small Business Week Awards Banquet emcee Diane Hutchinson. Business IQ has grown to employ three part-time and two full-time staff. "They have extended their training services, enabling 120 participants to be training under contract by Alberta Works," said the summary, "and also work in partnership with Adult Learning Councils to provide provincewide training courses via interactive webinars." The BRAED Business Appreciation Award is given to a business whose major activity is t o provide a p roduct or service to a significant part of the BRAED region. Past recipients are Electro-Tel (2010) and Vital Effect (2009). The Battle River Alliance for Economic Development is a group of 37 member communities and two associate members in east central Alberta. Its mission is to enhance regional and economic development opportunities in Battle River region through the sharing of information, promotions, service delivery and advocacy, and by maintaining excellence in government. Over the past several years it has tackled projects in areas of defence industry, agriculture, tourism, and education, and provided seminars and learning opportunities for its members. The BRAED region has a population of over 64,000 residents. The main sources of income are annual memberships and the provincial government.

Bethany Group now taking applications By Dan Jensen

The Bethany Group has started to take applications from persons wishing to reside in the new Wild Rose Affordable Housing development. "We've already had a f ew people make inquiries as to whether or not they qualify," said The Bethany Group CEO Denis Beesley. "It is a m atter now of finding the right people for the right apartment." Rents for the four bachelor suites will rent for $370 to $385 per month, depending on square footage. The maximum household income to qualify, as set out by the provincial government's Core Need Income Threshold (CNIT) is $25,500. Rents for the 21 one-bedroom suites will range from $545 to $575, again depending on square footage. The maximum household income for a one-bedroom apartment is $27,500. Rent for the 16 two-bedroom suites will range from $660 to $775. The maximum household income for a two-bedroom unit is $33,500. Rent for the four one-bedroom wheelchair accessible units will be $575, while rent for the four two-bedroom wheelchair accessible units will be $710. All rent prices will include heat, water and sewage, and insurance on the building. Tenants will pay their own electricity, telephone, cable TV and household insurance. The rents are subject to annual review by the Alberta government and will always be a minimum of ten per cent below the average market rent set by the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation. Tenants are expected to use the time of subsidized rent to improve and strengthen their financial situation, with a l onger term goal of being able to pay market rent in the community, or move into home ownership. Applicants must be a c urrent resident of the City of Camrose, have good rental references from current and past landlords, and agree to an in-home interview as part of the selection process. The Bethany Group is expecting that all the units will be filled by the time the development opens in the spring of 2012. The Wild Rose Affordable Housing Development has a total cost of approximately $8 million, of which $5.6 million has been provided by the provincial government through the City of Camrose. The mortgage will be paid by The Bethany Group at a fixed interest rate over a p eriod of 25 years. "The fact that we were able to lock in that interest rate over that period of time will really help the project over the course of its lifetime," explained Beesley. The Bethany Group is also getting closer to seeing the completion of its $18 million Brookside Life Lease development on the former Bethany Nursing Home site.

Camrose Greenspace information to be held at Stoney Creek Centre By Dan Jensen

Have some ideas you would like to share about the current and future park system in Camrose? You'll get that chance in a public information session at the Stoney Creek Centre (53 Street and 39 Avenue) from 6 to 8 p.m. Nov. 15. The session will help the City of Camrose, with the assistance of Dillon Consulting Ltd., develop a Gre en Space Master Plan, which will guide the development and growth of Camrose's green space system, including parks and trails, over the next fifteen years. "Drop in for five or 50 minutes to learn about the pro-

cess and tell us your thoughts on Camrose's greenspaces," said City of Camrose community services manager Paul Nielsen. A Green Space Master Plan questionnaire will be available at the session, and also electronically on the City's website after Nov. 14, for those who are unable to attend. As part of the Green Space Master Plan process, residents are being invited to submit their favourite historical or current photos of parks and trails in Camrose. Entries will be accepted by email at ataylor@ dillon.ca, or by mail at City of Camrose, Community Services, until December

1. The grand prize will be a $50 gift card redeemable at a Camrose establishment of choice. The Green Space Master Plan will help the City maintain green space ratio, protect the urban wildlife corridor, reach sustainability and liveability targets, and serve the extremes of the age spectrum. Preliminary priorities for the City are to build on the parks system in place, integrate the trail system into the larger transportation network and arterial network, to position Camrose as a regional habitat link with Stoney Creek as a m ain component, and assist with the management of stormwater.

Camrose City Council

PROGRESS REPORT after year one of three-year term.

A progress report after one year on the job. Last year at this time, your new Camrose Council had just commenced their duties serving you for the next three years. The Camrose Booster referred back to the fall 2010 campaign advertised messages and determined the campaign focal point for each of the candidates ultimately elected to office.

Based on the candidates’ printed messages advertising pledges, promises and aspirations, The Camrose Booster asked a specific question of each individual who won a seat on Camrose Council. We also asked Mayor Chalmers to provide his update after one year on the job. We requested that responses be restricted to 500 words in length. We advised each candidate that we would not edit or alter their written responses. We gave each

There are four affordable housing projects to highlight:

options for an increasingly mobile population.

Wildrose Affordable Housing Project – This 49 unit development is scheduled to open soon. City Council partnered with the provincial government and the Bethany Group to make this project a reality. It will provide affordable rents for many qualifying individuals and families.

In summary, progress on providing affordable housing options is very encouraging. In respect to public transportation, we are anticipating recommendations from our Task Force. The question of external public transport is an emerging problem. Thank you to The Booster for providing this opportunity to update Camrosians regarding these two areas of concern.

Secondary Suites Program – Several homeowners have accessed city grants to assist them in developing fully functional secondary suites within their homes. These suites have controlled rents making them more affordable for those in need of reduced rent.

Our comment to: Max Lindstrand: As the election neared last fall you told taxpayers that you “wanted to explore ways of providing service to the entire (local) population, including the provision of affordable housing options and public transit alternatives.”

Q

Outline how discussions have progressed on these two topics in year one of this council and news on either of these initiatives you hold dearly. Affordable Housing and Public Transit Options: The end of the first year of this term of office for Camrose City Council is in sight. It is, therefore, a good time to reflect upon the work of Council. I have been asked to address two issues: affordable housing options for residents of Camrose and the availability of public transit opportunities. It is fundamentally important that each resident of Camrose have access to safe and affordable housing. To that end, the council of the City of Camrose has an Affordable Housing Committee which serves in an advisory capacity. The committee includes representation from council and the general public and makes regular recommendations for council’s consideration.

Private Developer – Council has approved some grant funding for a private developer who plans to construct several units for low income residents of Camrose. With respect to public transportation, there are two aspects that need to be considered. Firstly, we need to plan for the needs of our residents to move about within the boundaries of Camrose. Secondly, we must be concerned about the lack of options for people to travel to and from Camrose by public transportation. City Council has established a Task Force to study and make recommendations regarding the needs that exist for public transportation within the city limits. This Task Force includes broad based representation from both council and the general public. Recently we have been advised that Greyhound (as of October, 2011) will no longer provide bus transportation to and from Camrose. Three decades ago we had both passenger rail and bus service to and from other centres. This is an area of great concern. Our Mayor and Economic Development Officer have been pursuing a variety of potential replacement services. This will remain a priority as it is important to provide

Q

What changes, initiatives and progress have you made in this regard in the last twelve months? Thank you for the opportunity to review the work of City Council. Council is a team effort and we all play important roles in ensuring the work is completed to create a sustainable and superior city. Sustainability and superiority for me comprised four essential areas: infrastructure, finances, service level(s) and social needs.

Habitat for Humanity – The city continues to provide financial and moral support to the local Habitat for Humanity group. The local chapter was formed in 1996 and has provided 18 homes for qualifying families. Habitat plans to construct two additional units in each of the next two years. This group continues to be an amazing success story!

approximately one week to return material to us at The Camrose Booster. In this feature you will read the exact question asked of each candidate and the response each has returned to us. We ask you to analyze their individual remarks and come to your own conclusion as to respective performance.

Our comment to: John Howard: Your goal as a Camrose councillor, at voting time last year, was to “offer citizens what you called a sustainable superior city.”

Our infrastructure includes: sidewalks and roads, waste and storm water treatment, drinking water treatment, and the parks and recreational facilities that form the foundation of the community. In some cases, that foundation is being weakened as new projects place demands on budget expenditures which leaves less money to maintain our existing infrastructure. I believe that moving to a multi-year capital and operational budget allows us to pay greater attention to our existing infrastructure, not risking deterioration of what we have in favour of building something new on a weakened foundation. For most people, attention to finances is limited to budget time and tax time. Council is working to make fiscal responsibility a weekly consideration. Council is working to complete a reserve policy, a core service review to prioritize spending and is refining our Strategic Plan. As

I mentioned in my campaign, we are getting better at asking-- “what can we afford to do, what can we afford not to do, and what can we not afford not to do?” Camrose has service levels beyond the norm for a city our size, none of which we would give up, but there remain areas that need more attention. Our police and fire protection are excellent. Our sports facilities, with the exception of a pool that doesn’t meet current competition standards, are exceptional. Our cultural facilities are coming on stream to an exceptional level. We do not want the service levels to drop, but we must find ways to keep paying the cost for these exceptional services. In addition to taxation, the council explores ways to spend wisely the grants we receive from the federal and provincial governments in order to maintain this superior service level. I am especially pleased that greater attention than ever is being paid to the social fabric of our community. While there have always been exceptional services to individuals, they have sometimes been fragmented as agencies lacked ways to cooperate and coordinate and the city had no firm social development strategy. Through SPAC, the city has addressed that issue and has recently adopted a Social Development Strategy dealing with all ages and needs from health, family supports, transportation, and long and short term methods for addressing social needs. This strategy will also be reviewed and revised as Camrose grows. Submitted by John Howard Councillor, City of Camrose

In addition, council and administration are committed to looking at the overall budget to ensure that the current tax dollars are being spent effectively. To the extent that some efficiencies can be achieved, the increased upward pressure on the tax levy will be reduced.

The proposed funding for the City Hall and Public Works facility at this point will have no direct impact on the property taxes going forward as they are to be funded from provincial grant money. There will always be the potential for a spin off cost to the extent that the grant money allocated could have been redirected to other projects which may now require future property tax dollars. That being said, it is this council’s decision that these projects are worthy of the grant dollars being allocated to them. The Performing Arts Centre is the project that is closest to being finalized prior to the final go ahead. Assuming that the final details are worked out, this project will have a direct impact on future property taxes. The proposed funding has $4,000,000 coming from debenture borrowing. The annual payments for that will directly impact the property tax levy. In addition, there will be an annual operating cost that will be funded from property taxes. A portion of the increase will be mitigated as older debt is paid out making current tax dollars

As an incumbent, I feel there is an obligation and great benefit to sharing my experience and background information with the newly elected officials as they become educated in municipal government and with projects in various stages of development. Remembering what it was like ten years ago in my first year in office, I really appreciated my colleagues for their mentorship and knowledge, as I believe it has made me a better city councillor. Proper growth, appropriate planning and sound financial management are all inter-connected. These objectives are dependent upon the global and Alberta economy, provincial funding rants and city taxes. My business background and community involvement have enabled me to provide experienced input during council discussions, planning and budget deliberations through the boom years and into these current global recessionary times.

Our comment to: Greg Wood: In the election campaign you claimed your role will be to “balance what we want with what we can afford.”

Recently, word from City Hall suggested a new City Hall, Public Works building and a new Performing Arts Centre are realistic objectives for this Council. Explain the financial impact of these projects on property taxes going forward.

them to sustain progress over time without losing what made Camrose special to begin with’.

Our comment to: Daryl Shillington: In your advertised message to potential voters you said: “proper growth for our city, appropriate planning and sound financial management doesn’t happen by accident. It takes clear thinking, serious commitment and sound management.”

Q

What positive steps have you helped Camrose council or administration embark on regarding progress for our city? Thank you to The Camrose Booster for this opportunity to reflect on one’s efforts over the last 12 months and, in my case, 10 years on City Council. Building a great city doesn’t happen in any one single year; it takes years of planning and commitment. Accomplishments in one year only adds collectively to a piece of a greater effort or vision. I’ve tried to instill upon City Council and Administration my belief and philosophy from the following statement: ‘Community capacity is about building assets that are not easily measured, community capacity is the skills, knowledge and abilities of community residents that enable

The greatest challenge we have is balancing all the wants and needs from residents, businesses, programing and service providers in Camrose. Sound financial management is an understanding of debt levels, operational expenses, debenture commitments, to ensure sustainability of current and future services or facilities, as related to our tax base. I’m a strong believer in long term planning and have supported and encouraged our City Administration for Strategic Planning documents to guide us into a bright and sustainable future. Some of these include: 5 to 10year capital projects with appropriate funding attached, CORE Services Review, a comprehensive Economic Development Strategy, Augustana Area Redevelopment Plan, Municipal Sustainability Plan, and a three-year operational budget. These documents would be meaningless if it weren’t firstly the wishes of the citizens of Camrose. All planning documents involve public input through workshops, open houses, and dialogue with residents every day of the week. Through telephone calls, visits to my business, emails and discussions at many public functions, I listen to everyone’s opinions and ideas and bring forth the public’s thoughts. In closing, I will continue to represent you in a professional and caring manner. Together we will plan our future collaboratively and live in a safe, progressive community we call home.

Our comment to: Marshall Chalmers: At election time last year in your final message to voters, you advertised that you were “really concerned about the past spending spree of City Council.” You also stated you “wondered about the future financial impact of a city-wide transit system, an elaborate city hall, the pending performing arts centre, the city’s land development program and social housing programs.”

CLEARANCE PRICED!

The first order of business was the 2011 Budget process. After weeks and weeks of presentations and initially starting out with a 7.3% suggested increase, council made some tough, tough decisions to pare that down to 3.5%. A part of which accommodated contractual agreements already in place. Council was very aware that the slumping economy had not yet hit the upswing. The 5 year Capital Budget and Project Funding streams were put under the microscope as promised. Two revenue sources were identified as needing substantial review. They were the Land Fund and Offsite Levies. As a result multi-year projects that had an accumulation of hundreds

Council then led a citizen engaged process to set a new direction for the city under what is referenced to as The Road Map to 2015 – Strategic Priorities. Our priorities are now Economic Development; Capital Projects & Expenditures; Core Services/Core Business; Decisionmaking Protocols and an Engaged and Informed Community. The railway tracks have now been laid to guide council as we move forward. There had been substantial efforts previously on the social pillar, however, this plan clearly identifies a focus shift to the economic pillar. We now have a new economic development officer in place (Ray Telford) and a new economic development strategy being developed. There remains substantial private land for residential development on the west portion of the city. There are approximately 20 serviced lots left for sale in the Valleyview Subdivision (city). As for Industrial Land, several lots were developed and sold in the Mohler III Subdivision. Construction is at the discretion of the owner. Very few city-owned serviced lots for industrial development remain. There are three (3) city-owned and serviced Highway Commercial lots remaining on the east end of the city. As servicing for residential, industrial and commercial lands are expensive, council needs to use extreme caution in balancing shovel ready land vs private development. Having said that, council must ensure that our policies facilitate progressive development through responsible leadership. In order to achieve this I have led the process in establishing a standing committee of council governed by Bylaw, called the Municipal Planning Advisory Committee. This committee, which includes three members of the public, will advise council in all areas of development to ensure we are positioned properly. Our new Strategic Plan called for finalizing the decision making and completion/implementation timeline for major capital facility and service projects. This has been done. Council has established the Camrose Performing Arts Center (CPAC), City Hall and Public Works Facility as their top three (3) priorities and have established by motion, go forward timelines and revenue

Ex-WHL net-minder, Dave Genio is back with us to help outfit goalies and hockey players of every age and level. Great advice you simply can’t get from any other store!

While CPAC and city hall construction could proceed simultaneously the public works facility is not slated for construction until 2015. I am satisfied that our current Capital Projects completion/ implementation timeline is least burdensome to our taxpayer. Public transportation was much talked about prior to and during our recent election campaign. I did not believe then and I do not believe now that public transportation as one would commonly know it ie: Edmonton, is necessary or affordable. Council is committed to identifying demographic groups who need transportation and coming up with some viable solutions. This is going to be achieved through a newly created Ad-Hoc Community Transportation Advisory Committee. To conclude, key administrative positions have seen substantial changes over the past year, including the CAO, Economic Development and Engineering. I am confident that our city is positioning itself to ensure we are providing an optimum place to build, develop, work and live yet doing it through fiscal responsibility. In addition, our new council have made incredible strides in being accessible to the public. Besides working full-time as mayor, a standing agenda item for council meetings called “Public Commentary” has now been incorporated. Coffee with the Mayor has been established and two of our council meetings have been held in educational institutions to engage high school and university students, along with the public, in council discussions. The first year has been extremely busy and I expect the next year to be the same. It is an extreme pleasure serving our citizens. Submitted by Marshall Chalmers Mayor, City of Camrose

streams to complete these. There will be no debenturing to build city hall and public works facilities. The Municipal Sustainability Initiative (M.S.I.) Funding allocated by the province is the major contributor. Although there is currently a motion to build a new city hall at its current location, that process has been stopped and administration has been tasked with providing alternative location options for consideration. Council is currently working through those and a decision will be made shortly so we can move forward and capitalize on the lower construction costs.

Camrose City Council PROGRESS REPORT Transportation Advisory Committee to specifically study public transit options. • Established a Municipal Planning Advisory Committee. Besides two committee meetings and two regular council meetings monthly……. All council members serve on various appointed boards and commissions. This past year I served on the Camrose Regional Exhibition Board. This volunteer board oversees numerous events such as:

Our comment to: Gerry Galenza: Your advertised, pre-election message stated that you “had the experience it would take and could offer advice to other council members when making important decisions for Camrose going forward.”

Q

Can you outline specifically how your experience and advice has helped councillors in the past twelve months and your opinion of what council should be most remembered for in terms of prudent decisionmaking in year one of this council?

Firstly, it is an honor and privilege to have served on Camrose City Council for 22 years. Over those years I have accumulated numerous files and documents relating to a wide range of issues addressed by previous city councils. With four new faces around the council table, I believe I have been able to give background knowledge and recommend some course of action based on previous personal involvement.

• Growing Rural Tourism • Canadian Bull Congress • Trade Show • Women’s Show • Rodeo • Festival of Trees • Big Valley Jamboree The CRE also completed a successful year in operating and managing the Camrose Exhibition Trail RV Park. I also served on the Camrose Police Commission. The Commission meets monthly with the Police Chief and administration. One significant item the commission addressed was the new License Search Fee, introduced suddenly by the Provincial Government. This could have cost the taxpayers of Camrose an additional approximate $60,000.00. The Commission along with our Mayor and council and other Alberta Mayors were successful in having this fee scrapped. For this coming year in the works: • 2012 City Budget • Finalization of agreements with our partners for construction of the new Performing Arts Facility. • Designation of the site for a New City Hall. • With the appointment of Ray Telford as Economic Development Officer, council can also move forward on developing a new Economic Strategy for the City of Camrose. Submitted by Gerry Galenza Councillor, City of Camrose

I believe council’s decisions should be based on information and facts, not emotions. I believe that experience has taught me to sometimes: 2. ride the wave of change 3. Focus on the process… not the goal 4. Experience and advice can get people excited about change and motivated to act. PART TWO: IN MY OPINION This city council should be remembered for a number of prudent decisions over the past year.

• The implementation of a new curbside recycling program. • Provided an additional $500,000.00 of municipal sustainability funds to the Bailey Theatre. • Created a Council Code of Conduct along with a Council/ Administration Protocol. • Completed a new strategic priorities plan 2011-2015 entitled “Going Forward” the roadmap to 2015. • Established a public commentary as part of each regular council agenda. • Updated the snow and ice removal policy. • Authorized and completed a Citizen Satisfaction Survey. • Appointed a new City Manager. • Approved a new Municipal Development Plan. • Initiated a Camrose Green Space Master Plan. • Established an adhoc Community

First year on Council…wow… what a learning curve. CAO, CEO, MSI, AUMA, AMGA, COLA, FSM, MDP, MGB, IT, HR, MDP, CPAC, CRE,..and the list of acronyms goes on and on…YIKES. Trying to get your head around all the abbreviations is a real chore and still creates some confusion on my part. I have done what I said I would do…listen and make informed decisions that best suit what I perceive to be the wishes of the citizens of Camrose. I remain visible and approachable through volunteering, committee work, coffee with the Mayor and numerous other council related and community activities. My contact numbers are available online and I look forward to hearing from you whenever you see fit. You asked “what have I accomplished “, in my first year as a city councilor?? Might I inform you that WE are the name of the game when it comes to making decisions that affect OUR community? I hold 1 of 9 votes so am not out to serve my own agenda…having said that I guess I have accomplished nothing… because it’s not about me. There have been some tough and perhaps controversial decisions made over the past year that have impacted the working of Council. I think the important thing to remember is the process and with the adoption of a new and revised decision making protocol I feel most comfortable with the decisions that have been made. I might add that I enjoy Council and find the committee work to be most gratifying as it has its roots with the residents we strive to serve. I enjoy the discussions and camaraderie with the Mayor, Council and Administration. Department heads and their support staff are exceptional compliments to the overall operation of effectively and efficiently running the City. Is it everything I thought it would be? No…it’s so much more! As for the challenges over the next two years: Moving forward includes decisions on a new city hall, public works facility, possible aquatic upgrades and maintaining expected service levels for our residents. It all depends on what the residents deem important, what is fiscally attainable/ sustainable and hopefully keeping the annual snowfall to a bare minimum.

1. make exceptions to the rule

• A reasonable 2011 operating budget based on an overall 3.53% tax increase.

I am thankful for that…for if I had I would be going against my principles of serving the residents of Camrose. I need to have an open mind to what is best for the residents. Having been a ‘Counselor’ in my former profession taught me to be an active listener which I employ as a councilor today…listen more talk less.

Our comment to: Brandon Blatz: You were a very vocal advocate for public transportation in your pre-election campaigning. In your final preelection advertisement you stated, “I support public transportation because an objective, fact-based review of mountains of data from transit professionals along with personal discussions with transit engineers has revealed a public transit service is operationally and financially feasible in Camrose…”

Q

What have you achieved in the past twelve months towards Camrose getting that public transportation service and are we close to being able to get such a service up and running to serve Camrosians? Public transportation was an important component of my diverse platform for a practical reason. Before and during the election, I was aware of the very real need and demand for accessible and affordable mobility options for residents of Camrose from all walks of life. Last November, just over a month after being sworn into office, I proposed a comprehensive motion to establish a public transportation committee to design a made-in-Camrose solution to the need for affordable and accessible public transportation options for those with limited mobility, who cannot afford to pay for private transportation each and every time they need to travel from point A to point B. At that time, council felt strategic planning should be completed prior to considering the motion, and it was tabled to a meeting in March, 2011. Subsequently, development of the committee’s terms of reference was referred to the Social Planning Advisory Committee (SPAC), on which I also sit as one of Council’s representatives. SPAC discussed the fundamental components and entrusted the crafting of the scope and duties of the committee to me. Upon completion, the terms went back to council for final tweaking and approval. I am pleased to say our council stepped up to the plate to tackle public transportation head on. Council struck the ad-hoc Community Transportation Advisory Committee, tasked with developing a viable model for an incremental, accessible and affordable transportation service for identifiable demographics in the City of Camrose. We have taken a “grassroots” approach to public transit planning, working with Camrosians to design an incremental framework for community transportation built around the unique needs of our Community, rather than trying to utilize a prefabricated service model designed for use elsewhere. I lobbied council

My original motion specified that this task be done “in-house,” making use of the expensive work already completed and paid for, and drawing on internal, as well as vast community expertise and input. It is unnecessary to spend additional taxpayer dollars to hire more private consultants. We can do the job better ourselves. It’s a monumental task, but the Community Transportation Advisory Committee is working very hard to fulfill its mandate, always being heedful that the end product must be prudent and realistic; and the plan must not overburden taxpayers. With the model due on June 31, 2012, the Committee has its work cut out for it. While I cannot give you a specific implementation date for public transportation in the City of Camrose, I am confident that we are a great deal closer to that reality than we were a year ago when I was elected to serve the people of Camrose as your City Councillor. It is an ongoing honour and a pleasure to work both for you and with you, united in moving towards a brighter future.. Submitted by Brandon Blatz Councillor, City of Camrose

Our comment to: Ray McIsaac: In your final preelection ad you told voters that you wanted to “provide them with good assurance of good value for their tax dollars.”

Q

What decisions have you and your fellow councillors made this year-past to provide taxpayers with more bang for their buck? According to the 2011 Ipsos Public Affairs Satisfaction Syndicated Study (Satisfaction Survey) our citizens have indicated that there was reasonable support for a moderate tax increase in order to maintain or increase service levels. To a lesser degree there were certain of the respondents that indicated they would like to see a decrease in service levels so as to maintain the current tax level. Further there were some respondents that would prefer a decrease in service levels in order to reduce taxes.

that was put forward called for a 7+% increase. Some challenges we faced that were and are outside of our control include a somewhat softer economy as well as contractual agreements within the city that need to be negotiated from time to time and this is without doubt always a challenge. Another challenge we encounter is weather related and it can certainly wreak havoc from time to time. Snow would (no pun intended) fall into this category. It certainly took its toll in 2011. We still have to contend with that as we begin our 2012 budget deliberations. Considering what we were faced with I believe that we have done a reasonable job of utilizing our taxpayer dollars. Direction was given to administration early on to bring forth a budget that reflected a modest or at least the minimum of increases so as not to reflect too much of a burden on our taxpayers and maintain necessary services. The community groups presenting budgets to council for approval were encouraged to maintain the status quo on funding for the 2011 budget year. Those folks play a very important role in our community and are to be commended for their compliance with the request. Initial budget presentations began in October with numerous community groups as well as city departments presenting. After some time of listening to and discussing various presentations the time came when we moved from presentations to deliberations. The deliberation process began in earnest in November and resulted in some long and challenging budget meetings. A great deal of time and energy was spent on budget deliberations (as it should have been) in order to achieve what we deemed to be a fair and reasonable 2011 budget. The 2010 budget reflected a 0% tax change while I believe in 2011 we succeeded in holding our tax levy increase to a fair and reasonable 3.53% while maintaining reasonable service levels. Some capital projects were deferred to 2012. Debt repayment is in the area of 1.9 million dollars so far in 2011. We really haven’t incurred much in the way of tax supported debt since the Edgeworth centre project. It has been pretty much all local improvement. According to our citizen’s survey quality of life in Camrose is rated at 97% as being good to very good. Submitted byRay McIsaac Councillor, City of Camrose

Dennis Struk is proud of h is collection of o ld music star autographed photographs. By Murray Green

Dennis Struk started playing in a ba nd when he was 12 years old. Since then, the music fan has collected photos of famous musicians. "I started collecting the photos of all the bands and people I played with or was on the same stage with. Then it expanded from there," said Dennis, who now lives in the New Sarepta area. He shared some of his Hank Snow photos, most of them autographed, with his son Jimmie Snow, who recently played at the Bailey Theatre. "I have a picture of Jimmie when he was 17 years old. He verified that the autographs are authentic," said an excited Dennis. "I a lso have my band's first advertisement in the newspaper. We were called the Lincolns, in 1963. I even played one of Hank Snow's songs in the band." Dennis loved touring and playing country music. "I went to Calgary when I was 18 and started collecting pictures throughout my travels. I've been at it for more than 40 years. I h ave about 130 autographed photos. My entire collection takes up most of my daughter's garage and I have a motor home full. My favourite musician was the late Hank Williams. I have two books signed by his wife and family, including Hank Williams Jr. The books came out just after his passing." Other photos include Johnny Cash, Ronnie Prophet and June Carter Cash. He also has programs and tour information he often shares with people interested in music history. "The good part about this is that 40 years later I can match the names with faces of how they once looked when I se e them. I can't go by looks anymore because they have changed so much." Now Dennis is a o ne-man show featuring his guitar and vocals at local venues. He was often called upon to be a member of a l ead singer's back-up band during his hey day. The Hank Snow Museum in Liverpool, Nova Scotia, has inquired about Dennis, with an idea of borrowing some of his photos to fill a display. For more information on the historic photos phone 780-941-3502.

The Chuck MacLean Arts Centre is proud to feature a retrospective art show of Jeannette McDonald for the month of November. Jeannette has been painting since the 1960s and has tried a variety of mediums from oils to watercolour to china painting to coloured pencil. A regular theme in her art is f lowers and landscapes but she has also depicted a wide variety of other subjects as well. Jeannette is very concerned with light in her paintings and has been very successful at capturing it in the folds of fabric and the ripples of water. A member of the Mirror Lake Art Club since 1967 Jeannette appreciates the encouragement she has received over the years and has found the exercise of pulling samples together for this show interesting. This retrospective shows what hard work and patience can do. Although this writer quite enjoys her earlier work for its loose quality, one can see a change in style that is wonderful. She has obviously learned from the various classes she has taken and the experience she has gained. When talking to her about her earlier pieces compared to the present pieces she emphasizes that it did not happen overnight but if you stick with it painting is very rewarding. For more information on this show call 780-672-9949.

Camrose Kodiaks catch Eagles in third period By Murray Green

The veterans on the Camrose Kodiaks had a little playful fun at the rookies' expense on Halloween night. The dressing room looked scary the next morning. "We did everything imaginable to their equipment," admitted Luc Vandale. "We put shampoo on their sticks, helmets and gloves. We put towels and under shirt wear in very cold water. It was a good Halloween prank." Luc hopes the players will relax a l ittle after the prank and have some fun winning games. "Our effort in the games has been there. Finishing plays on our scoring chances has been lacking," said Luc. "We could have beaten Canmore worse than 2-1. Our goalies are playing fantastic right now." The hibernating bears woke up just in time for the third period. The Camrose Kodiaks scored two goals in the last frame to edge the Canmore Eagles 2-1 on pink jersey day, Oct. 30. Landon Kadatz and Tanner Marshall garnered the only tallies for the Kodiaks. The team wore pink Kodiaks' jerseys and socks in support of breast cancer awareness. Goalie Brayden Hopfe held Camrose in the game with 24 of 25 saves. "I don't think we are scared that other teams are going to pick it up," said Luc. "We are easily the hardest working team in the league. We are in a dry spell with goals."

Pro Sports Photography Kieran O'Neil of the Camrose Kodiaks watches the puck elude the Brooks Bandits' goalie on Nov. 6.

The Camrose Kodiaks were burnt 5-3 by the Drumheller Dragons on Oct. 29. Kadatz and Tanner Marshall were the leaders on offence again with a goal. Adam deChamplain added a third period power play marker to round out the scoring. Matt Gibney stopped 29 of 34 shots in the Camrose net. "Against

Drumheller, we had a l ot of chances, but just didn't score. We are working hard, so t he chances will come. The bounces are not going our way sometimes. Concentrating more and not gripping our sticks too tight will help us." The Kodiaks needed a shoot-out to escape with a 2-1

victory over the Olds Grizzlys on Oct. 27. The lone goal scorer for the Kodiaks in regulation time was Tanner Tyndall who scored a shorthanded goal in the third after two scoreless periods. However, Olds evened up the score with 1:24 left on the clock. Jonathan Lashyn and Connor

Mailey scored for the Kodiaks in the shoot-out to earn the extra point. Hopfe stopped 27 of 28 shots in regulation and two out of three in the shoot-out. Luc is w orking on improving his overall game. "I k now I can be a little better in the defensive zone. I'm working on that and we all are. There is more than offence to my game. I want to play well defensively. Another thing we are concentrating on is our power play. We want more net traffic and shooting. On a p ower play, we are up a m an, so we want to create more two-on-ones and find the extra open man. We are too fancy right now. Then we want to drive the net and get lots of shoots." Coach Boris Rybalka said November will be a t ough month. "We play several of the stronger teams and I'm looking forward to it. It will show us how we measure against them and it will determine if we have to make any changes. I like facing the top teams because it pushes us to be better." The Kodiaks go on a series of four-game road trips to Canmore, Calgary twice and Brooks before hosting the Fort McMurray Oil Barons on Nov. 19 at 7:30 p.m. The Brooks Bandits are here on Nov. 20 for a 2 p .m. start. The final home game of the month is o n Nov. 25, when the Grande Prairie Storm make a rare appearance at the Edgeworth Centre.

Augustana prepares for cross-country running nationals By Murray Green

Augustana placed one female and one male cross-country running athlete on Team Alberta after a s trong finish at provincials. Kalli Green and Andy Pohl will compete for both the university and Alberta at nationals on Nov. 12 and 13. Jodi Sanguin ran away with a second straight provincial collegiate cross-country women's running title on Oct. 29. The fifth-year athlete with the Red Deer College won the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference’s (ACAC) individual women’s cross-country title in Calgary. Peter Kalya of Lethbridge College won the men’s individual title, completing

the eight kilometre course in 26:43. Pohl of the Vikings finished just three seconds back in 26:46, and Devin Woodland of Grande Prairie Regional College finished third overall in 28:19. Augustana will be sending a women's and men's team to nationals. "We have the opportunity to send a full team, as long as the runners competed in provincials, said Mari McLachlin, who admitted she didn't have her best showing at provincials. "We saved some money throughout the year, like taking vans instead of buses, in order to send more runners to nationals." The top seven athletes in each of the women’s and men’s events were named

to the ACAC all-conference teams, and earned the right to compete in the Kamloops, B.C., hosted Canadian Colleges Athletic Association (CCAA) open national championships on Nov. 12 and 13. "I was in the bottom quarter for a long time," said Brady Imeson. "Through hard work, I improved to be in the top half. I was satisfied with the way I finished." Augustana’s Kalli Green made the women's squad and Pohl is o n the men's Alberta team. The Griffins won the ACAC men’s team title with Lethbridge coming in second and the Vikings finishing third. "I didn't compete much before this year. I'm on the curling team and thought

running will help me get in shape for a long season of sweeping in curling," said Mari. "It helps me with endurance and the spirit of commitment." Earning bronze in the provincials was a step up for the Vikings. "We finished fourth at a lot of races, so being third in Alberta was an improvement. Hopefully, we can compete with the larger teams from the east," said Brady. "We are working towards having personal bests at nationals," concluded Mari. Both runners will be cheering Andy on in his attempt at winning a medal at the national level.

FOOT PROBLEMS? I can help!

Back and Body Pain How many times have you said “My back hurts. I just need to sit down.” How many times do you feel fatigue in your back and body during the day? Our feet are our shock absorbers for our whole body. Now if your feet are not functioning properly, your whole body, especially your back, will feel the difference. PROGNOSIS: If untreated, your life can change significantly – not being able to work, spend time with your loved ones, and ultimately your health will suffer. Has anyone ever looked at your feet as the cause of the pain? Eighty percent of back pain is caused by carrying our weight incorrectly on our feet. TREATMENT: Total orthotics will help to elminate the pressure on your back and legs to help release tense muscles. The orthotic will take pressure off the heels to neutralize the pressure through the lower extremities to make the pressure come off the back. For your free foot assessment, please call Total Orthotics. Karen Anderson has been an orthotic tech for ten years, and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

One you’ll try to live with.

Watershed Alliance releases new report By Dan Jensen

Nutrients pose the greatest threat to water quality in the Battle River according to the Battle River Watershed Alliance's State of the Battle River and Sounding Creek watersheds report 2011. The report notes that water quality testing at Battle River and Highway 53 a nd Battle River Dried Meat Lake water quality monitoring stations in 2008/2009 resulted in a ma rk of fair, meaning that federal and provincial guidelines for metals, nutrients, bacteria and pesticides were sometimes exceeded by moderate amounts, with water quality occasionally departing from desirable levels. The report also shows that surface water quality monitoring from 2004-2005 for eleven water quality monitoring stations along the Battle River showed that Canadian Water Quality Guidelines for phosphorous were exceeded more than 50 per cent of the time (at all stations) and 100 per cent of the time at the Battle River and Highway 53 and Battle River and Dried Meat Lake locations. "Phosphorous and nitrogen are essential building blocks of life basically, but in excess quantities they can lead to things like algae blooms, and with algae blooms can come decreased dissolved oxygen levels, which then impacts and degrades and aquatic eco system and aquatic organisms like fish that are living there," said Battle River Watershed Alliance planning coordinator Sarah Skinner. "If there is n o dissolved oxygen the fish are not going to do so well." Battle River Watershed Alliance manager David Samm

A view of the Battle River just west and south of Camrose.

said the high nutrient levels can negatively impact recreation activities along the Battle River, as well as the costs associated in treating the water to ensure it is safe to drink. He said that three of the factors that contribute to high nutrient levels are the high levels of phosphorous that are in area soils, human activity and livestock. "Just the fact that we live here and create wastewater that goes into Dried Meat Lake and the Battle River has an immediate impact," he explained. "We also use a l ot of fertilizers for crops and that, along with manure from the livestock, can increase the levels of nutrients that are entering the water if the riparian or filtering systems are not intact." Samm said the Battle River Watershed Alliance is trying to

provide more education to those who fertilize their lawns or their crops, so they can see what they are doing affects the water. "We are not opposed to fertilizer use but we want people to be smart with the way they use fertilizer." The report also states that in terms of surface water allocation, the Battle River is ov er allocated. "In an average year the natural flow of the Battle River amounts to about 276,000 cubic decametres. In 2010, about 750,000 cubic decametres of surface water were allocated in the Battle River watershed." The report goes on to state that about ninety per cent of the surface water is allocated to ATCO Power for use at the ATCO Power Battle River coalfired generating station, almost all of which is re turned to the

river after use. It adds that the amount of surface and groundwater allocated in the Battle River and Sounding Creek watersheds does not take into account unlicenced domestic or household water use. Under Alberta's Water Act, it states, Albertans owning or occupying land adjacent to surface water or under which groundwater exists may withdraw up to 1,250 cubic metres of water per year for domestic or household use without requiring a licence. The report indicates that, according to the most recent assessment of the Alberta River Flow Quantity Index, long-term flows in the Battle River, based on the 10-year index average from 2000 to 2009, are below the normal natural flow. "Because we are a p rairie fed watershed where most of the

water comes from precipitation, we have great yearly variations between high and low," said Samm. "In 2003 and 2004 for example we had huge drought situations and last year we had huge rainfalls that gave lots of flow in the water. Both of those things happened in the last ten years, so w e had huge swings between a v ery low tide and a very high tide." Skinner said a lot of times in the Battle River watershed water quantity can be tied to water quality. "Because our landscape is fairly flat in this part of Alberta the water moves fairly slowly across our watershed, so t hat fact alone means that there is not a l ot of flow going through very fast. Whatever water is going into it is potentially staying there for a fa ir bit of time, something that leads to, or exacerbates in some instances, water quality issues." The Battle River Watershed Alliance held workshops on the State of the Battle River and Sounding Creek Watersheds Report in Lacombe and Ponoka Nov. 1 a nd Camrose Nov. 3. Future workshops will be held in Hardisty and Killam Nov. 15, Stettler Nov. 17, Provost and Wainwright Nov. 22, Wetaskiwin Nov. 24, and Consort and Coronation Nov. 28. "The purpose of the workshops is to share with watershed residents information from the State of the Watershed Report and also to hear from them about w hat they see as the issues and opportunities facing the watershed," said Skinner. "The report will provide the information that is required to make better informed decisions about how to manage the watershed for long-term sustainability."

Senior Centre Society strong with increased numbers By Murray Green The rumours of the death of the Camrose and District Senior Centre Society were greatly exaggerated. With a c urrent membership of 338 seniors (55 plus) and 17 different clubs offering a variety of activities, nothing could be further from the truth. The Society has gone from 185 members in 2007 to 338 today. That is about a 45 per cent increase in just four years. "We base our numbers from 2007 because that was when the Society was fractured, the staff was let go a nd the City took over the building," explained senior president Wilf Maertens-Poole, who has held the position since 2007. "One of the rumours out there was that the Senior Society owned the building. We never did own the building. We rented it from the City. Seniors raised funds for the building, and the City and County contributed money towards the building; but, we lease it from the City. We want to stomp out that rumour. Some people seem to think we just gave it away to the City and that is certainly not the case." In 2007, the entire board resigned with a la rge debt load.

The Mirror Lake Centre in Camrose.

The City said they were no longer the Senior Centre Society banker. "We came on board and said there will be no paid staff. That was our first order of business. All of these clubs became very independent and bought into the system that we established. Because of that, the smiles began to return to the faces of people in the various groups. The word entitlement disappeared off the whole face of the Senior Society. Everybody thought they were entitled to something, but nobody paid for anything. Now users pay

and people are back to being happy again." Everyone volunteers except for the bookkeeper. "We wanted an independent person checking the books," said Wilf. Several tournaments or dances draw more than 200 people. Some groups are at the point of turning people away at major functions. "Our bridge club is bursting at the seams and we actually spread out into two rooms," he added. "One of our problems is that the City came in and took over the basement. That

was great. However, they moved upstairs and started renovations and then just quit. We haven't been able to use the lounge for three years. It is an eyesore and we could use that space." The Senior Society encourages drop-ins and joining the fun. Every day, several of the groups can be found playing card games, practicing for competitions, or filling the air with old-time songs at the Mirror Lake Centre. "We encourage all seniors (55 and over) to drop into the centre to enjoy a m orning or afternoon of good fun and great company," said board member Rose Snopek. "Once you decide to become a regular member, the annual fee is just $15." The Society rents the Mirror Lake Centre from the City of Camrose. "We have a great facility and auditorium. However, our lease agreement with the City states we can't rent out space for functions such as weddings," said senior president Wilf MaertensPoole. "We also hear how the City is moving in and we are going to be kicked out. That is also not the truth. We are alive and well, and very active with our 17 various groups." Some of the clubs that belong

to the Society include pool (snooker), table tennis, scrabble, floor curling, Golden Tones, cribbage, pickle ball, polkafest, bridge, floor shuffleboard, dance clubs, CamRoses (red hatters), canasta and carpet bowling. "We are also open to suggestions. If someone wants to start another group that falls under our umbrella, then we are open to those ideas," said both Rose and Wilf. "Every year, we meet with the City and go over our requirements. We charge each person an amount to cover all of our costs, whether it is a d ance or a floor curling tournament. As the Society started to get out of debt, we bought new coffee makers and chairs. Each club knows in advance what they will be charged, so the smiles are back," added Wilf. "We own all of the equipment in the Mirror Lake Centre. I f we were ever asked to leave, all of the chairs and tables would go with us. We have a reserve now as a fallback. We invested in the building by putting in new floors and carpets."

Toyota Camry Sophisticated new design

Ben Tobiasson Toyota City By Dan Jensen

The 2012 Toyota Camry at Toyota City in Wetaskiwin features a bold, sophisticated new design with a more spacious interior, improved driving dynamics and even quieter than ever before. "The all-new Toyota Camry blends an evolution of the car's values – such as comfort, efficiency, reliability and safety – with a more appealing design and engaging driving experience," said Bob Carter, Toyota Division group vice president and general manager. "Competition in the midsize sedan segment is the strongest it has ever been and the all-new Camry is designed to maintain its longstanding leadership while also broadening its appeal." Powertrain choices

The DOHC 3.5 litre V6, available with the SE and XLE models, delivers 268 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 248 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,700 rpm. Enhancements to the engine boost its fuel efficiency to 9.7 litres per 100 km city and 6.4 litres per 100 km highway. To improve efficiency, the V6 features a new, lower oil viscosity and an automatic transmission fluid warmer that brings the transmission to operating temperature more quickly in cold weather. The gas engine LE, XLE and SE models come equipped exclusively with a six-speed automatic transmission that offers a sequential manual shift mode using the console shifter. Intelligent control adapts shifting strategy in response to driver input, with fast kick-down. The Camry hybrid debits a highly revised version of the brand's Hybrid Synergy Drive powertrain, including a n ew 2.5 litre four-cylinder engine. The 2012 Camry Hybrid LE, with 4.5 litres per 100 km city and 4.9 litres per 100 km highway, yields a more than 30 per cent boost in fuel economy in the EPA city and combined driving cycles, compared to the previous generation, thanks largely to the new hybrid powertrain but also due to lighter vehicle weight and optimized aerodynamics. The new 2.5 litre engine, like the 2.4 litre it replaces, uses the Atkinson cycle (delayed intake-valve closing) for an expansion ratio greater than compression ratio to achieve maximum efficiency. The Variable Valve Timing with intelligence system on the intake camshaft enhances torque, which is greater than with the previous engine. The 2012 Camry Hybrid meets advanced technology

zero emission standards. New sound absorbing materials in the engine compartment, along with more linear control over engine speed, give the 2012 Camry Hybrid a more pleasing sound under acceleration. New for the 2012 Camry Hybrid is a n EV Drive mode, which allows the driver to operate the car on the electric motor alone for up to 1.6 miles at lower speeds. The EV indicator illuminates when the vehicle is being propelled solely by the electric motor. As on the previous Camry Hybrid, ECO mode optimizes throttle response and air conditioning output to prioritize maximum fuel economy. A Hybrid-exc lusive instrument cluster with Hybrid System Indicator and fuel consumption indicator helps the driver operate the car as economically as possible. Modern form

The 2012 Camry employs an elegantly simple but modern form, emphasizing a w ider, lower stance than previous models. The Camry LE and XLE feature additional exterior chrome trim, and the SE debuts its own lower-body design and exclusive fine-mesh upper grille section. The more prominent rocker panel mouldings on the SE clearly link to integrated front and fear underbody spoilers, emphasizing width, and the trunk lid carries an integrated spoiler. Interior design

A new dashboard design, modified seat locations, redesigned seats and lean door, pillar and headliner trim all combine to add real space and greater percep-

tual spaciousness while enhancing outward visibility. Repositioning the driver's seat and the standard tilt/telescoping steering wheel (tilt has increased 33 per cent for greater driving comfort) also aid forward visibility and enhance the driver's positioning. The Camry LE and XLE grades feature either ivory or grey seating colour; the Camry SE features unique upholstery in black-on-black or black-on-grey. The height adjustment on the driver's seat offers nearly a half inch greater range than before. Special attention was paid to function and comfort with the centre console design. Soft kneepads on both sides add comfort for the driver and passenger: the front section offers a 12V accessory connector and an easy-toaccess USB/input jack port for connecting iPods and other media devices. The standard audio system on the LE, XLE and SE has a 6.1 inch screen and six speakers. The screen also displays the energy monitor and fuel-consumption data, and functions as the monitor for the available integrated back-up camera. The screen also offers a new value-driven navigation system and serves as a p ortal for Entune, Toyota's innovative new multi-media system. Quiet ride

New sound absorbing materials silence any noise that manages to penetrate the interior. In particular, engineers focused on suppressing noises that are near the frequencies of human speech to provide an environment that is more comfortable for conversation. Measures that focus on reducing wind noise include stronger door and rocker area seals, optimized placement of sound insulating materials, foam applied in the roof, pillars and door openings, acoustic glass used for the V6 and Hybrid models' windshield, and special bracing of cowl intake louvres. Suspension

The Camry SE features specific suspension components and tuning, including exclusive steering knuckles and lighter, stiffer, lower front control arms. The front and rear springs are exclusive to this model, and the shock absorbers feature internal rebound springs for greater cornering roll resistance.

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

The Augustana Vikings hockey club met its goal. Augustana wanted to make sure the trip to Briercrest produced four points. The Vikings succeeded in defeating the Clippers 10-2 and 6-3 on Oct. 28 and 29 to hold onto second place in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference. "We had a lot of rest heading into the first game and we had a good skate. We were all into it, riding the bus and being together, and then we came out hard and had a go od game. You could see that by the score," said forward Matt Foster. "In Saturday's game, it was tougher because of the quick turn around. After getting beaten 10-2, they wanted to come back with some dignity and pride and show the league and themselves that they could play hockey." Matt led the Vikings on offence in the opening game with a hat trick. His three goals were supported by Adam Johnson and Daniel Hope, who each added two markers. Single markers came from Kenny Bradley, Quinn Amiel and Devon Hobbs. Goaltender Joel Danyluk stopped 34 of 36 shots for the Vikings. Former Camrose Minor Hockey goalie Jesse Chenard didn't receive a lot of support as he faced 41 shots. In the rematch, it was Jeremy Beirnes' turn to perform a little magic as he collected a hat trick. Amiel chipped in with two goals and Brendan Lamb added a single marker to round out the scoring. Goalie Danyluk stopped 27 of 30 shots. "We have to stay with our game plan and stick to being focused because it is another game and what happened in the last game doesn't matter in the next one," said Matt. "We are aware that we have to take care of things

in our back end. We don't want bad habits to come in. Guys are trying to pay attention of where they are defensively and help the goalies. In practice, we are working on defensive zone coverage to prepare for the top teams." Matt said it is time to challenge for first place. "We feel like it is time to play at the next level and we really look forward to facing the top teams to see how we measure up. It is good to have that challenge and test. It will be high intensity and like a playoff game. It is a test we are excited to face. We want to win two games and be in first place." The Vikings host the SAIT Trojans on Nov. 9 a t the Edgeworth for a 7:30 p.m. start. Volleyball

The Vikings enjoyed a week off, but now it is back to work as far as regular season action is concerned. Augustana takes on the SAIT Trojans in Camrose for matches on Nov. 12. The women's match begins at 6 p.m., with the men to follow at 8 p.m. Basketball

The women's Augustana basketball team split a pair of games with the King's Eagles of Edmonton. The Vikings were the ones to soar at home in the first game as they won 75-66 on the strength of Kari Kubinec's 21 points and Kelsey Lund's 20 points. The next night, on Oct. 29, Augustana lost 74-60. Lund scored 21 and Kubinec chipped in with 11 as the Eagles held her in check. The men's squad dropped both ends of their weekend competition. The King's University won 87-75 and 79-67. David Shantz led the Vikings in scoring with 20 points and Lee Danderfer added 18 in the first game, while Shayn Bruney netted 17 and Dandefer collected 13 in the second game.

The Camrose Open Door Association is pleased to announce the purchase of the Gardner College main campus with an occupancy date of Nov. 15. We acknowledge the strong contribution that Gardner College has made to our community through educating young people since January 1933. In addition, Gardner College has hosted the Open Door’s housing project for the last two years. We understand the sadness resulting from the closure of the college and are very thankful for the opportunity to continue the college’s mission by providing housing and learning opportunities for youth in Camrose and area. The Open Door is planning to continue providing eight beds for emergency use (short period of time during a c risis) on the campus and to add four units for transitional supportive housing. Transitional housing provides support (low rent, skill-building, etc.) for several months to enable clients to move out of a c risis stage and into their own housing in the community. Housing provision has been a part of the Open Door’s strategic plan since it was first written on a restaurant napkin 13 years ago. The purchase of the Gardner site provides the best opportunity to fulfill our mission to give youth the best opportunities to succeed and is an investment in their future. Investing in people provides much better returns than the stock market. Providing youth with educational and employment training and opportunities, stable, secure housing and essential life skills helps them along the positive path towards independence and self-sufficiency as contributing members of society. The social and economic cost of not doing something is m uch higher than the cost of providing services. The purchase of the Gardner College site will allow us to help youth unlock their own potential. Contact Randal Nickel, Open Door Executive Director, at 780-679-6803 or director@camroseopendoor.com for more information.

In the Camrose atom Buffaloes football team's biggest game of the year, they stampeded to a 31-12 victory in the playoffs. Camrose coaches rallied the herd against the Fort Saskatchewan Storm on Sunday, Oct. 30, in one of the best games of the season. "We were able to weather the Storm. Unlike several of the previous games, it did not take us two quarters of football to start playing. The players seemed to be very energetic and eager to play prior to the start of the game," said coach Fitz Sherman. On offence, the Buffaloes were able to move the ball effectively with a solid ground attack and a few passes thrown into the mix. "Running back Hailey McKechnie returned to her early season form with several long runs and a touchdown. The Storm could not contain our quarterback draws up the middle and when they did, we just ran off tackle," Fitz explained. "We had several nice plays on offence, such as tight end sweep with a pitch back to the quarterback, who ran for an 80 yard touchdown, and a gorgeous block by wide receiver Kieran Sherman that lead directly to another touchdown on a quarterback boot." The linemen on both sides of the football also made a huge difference in the contest. "Our lines played well and we were able to control the inside for a majority of the game. On defence, we tackled better than previous games and we had more gang tackling with everyone contributing. Our defence played a very good game and backed up each other well. I w ould say this game was about team effort." The entire team played well, but coach Fitz praised some players for outstanding plays. "Although there were some players that stood out, such as quarterback Teryll Sherman, with several touchdowns on some long runs; running back Hailey McKechnie, with a touchdown and several long runs; Zach Pearson, who had a s trong game at defensive halfback; Owen MacPherson, with numerous tackles from his outside linebacker position; and defensive lineman Kevin Kittler, who ran sideline to sideline – it was a total team effort."

CHRISTMAS MARKET – Sunday, Nov. 20, Rosalind Hall, 12:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. Excellent variety. Door prizes. Lunch available. Free admission. For more information call 780-375-2350.

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.

REMEMBRANCE DAY SERVICE – Emil Bosmans’ Memorial Gardens, Round Hill, 10:30 a.m., Nov. 11. Lunch to follow at Round Hill Community Centre. Please bring lunch.

Steer Clear of Abbreviations

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

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

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

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

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

Sorenson pays tribute to all who Licensed Automotive have served Kevin Sorenson, M.P., Crowfoot

During Veterans’ Week Canadians pay tribute to the generations of men and women in uniform who have answered the call of duty and served our country. As your Member of Parliament, I a m proud to report to you that throughout our large riding remarkable numbers of constituents young and old attend events to commemorate Canada’s Veterans, particularly on Remembrance Day. We have many Canadian military veterans living in our riding. Our Crowfoot Constituency office has been busy arranging the distribution of numerous Government of Canada Remembrance Day Wreaths. Communities that ask for them receive them. T hey are to be laid at Remembrance services throughout Crowfoot. Some of the smaller communities don’t have a Royal Canadian Legion Branch or a Cenotaph, yet they have requested a Veterans’ Day Wreath for the ceremony they will be holding. From the First and Second World Wars, to the Korean War, to the mission in Afghanistan and numerous peacekeeping assignments, our Troops have always stood up for Canadian values – f ighting with bravery, courage and dedication. W e pay tribute to the bravery and unwavering determination of those soldiers who lost their lives in battles past, and we recognize the Canadian soldiers who are working to defend Canadian values of freedom, democracy and the rule of law. I will be speaking at the Remembrance Day Ceremony in Gleichen this year. I w ill be expressing the emotions and citing the themes that Canadians have come to identify with during Remembrance Day ceremonies. My speeches on these occasions recall and share the experience I had in 2008 representing Canada in France and Belgium to mark the 90th Anniversary of the End of the First World War. 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 performing the difficult ‘hands-on’ work of Canada’s Mission in Afghanistan. A s 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. Canadians serving abroad are also quick to talk about missing their loved ones – and

our country. These Canadians are convinced that Canada is the best place in the world to live. While heroic Canadians risk their lives overseas, mothers, fathers, wives and children wait patiently on home soil for their loved ones to return – p raying for their safety. It’s certain that the conflicts of today look much different than those in the past. However, it is still fathers, mothers, sons, and daughters who put everything on the line to stand up for what they believe in – the values that we as Canadians hold dear. For the rest of us who owe

our freedom to the service of both the past and present generations, it is o ur duty to support and remember. On behalf of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Government of Canada, I want to thank those who have served, and those who continue to serve our great country. Lest we forget.

Satisfaction survey gathering residents' feedback

Reeve Don Gregorwich

Submitted by Camrose County Camrose County recently mailed every household in the County the 2011 Camrose County Satisfaction Survey. County Reeve, Don Gregorwich said, “This survey will give us a chance to get feedback from residents” and “help us as we plan in both the short and long term for budgeting as we

are continuing to receive more requests for services.” One of the most vital factors of a successful organization is communication. The surveys will also “give reactions as to how we are trying to communicate with residents,” stated Reeve Gregorwich. Many media forms, including newspapers, personal mail-outs, Facebook, and Twitter, are being used by the County today. The survey

will allow residents to give feedback about what form of communication they prefer. The active participation of County residents in completing the survey is critical in providing information about current issues, County operations, and public communication. The survey is thorough but easy to complete and residents have been given addressed and postage paid envelopes to return

the surveys. Completed surveys may also be dropped off in person at the Camrose County Office. County residents have until December 15, 2011, to provide their feedback and return the surveys. “We are always looking for innovative ideas which will save the County money and improve efficiency,” said Reeve Gregorwich.

Leo Carl Wiberg

Delmer Albin Davidson

Eleanor Anne Rosland

Leo was born September 14, 1937 to parents Jenny and John Wiberg, and passed away suddenly on October 21, 2011. Leo was married for 52 years to Elaine (Humbke), and to this union was born Darren, Lorrinda and Randy. Leo started his employment career at the age of 16 hauling water for an oil rig, then working for various other companies before proceeding into the field of e ducation. He started as an elementary-junior high teacher at Kingman while continuing to attend the University of A lberta to complete a Ba chelor of Arts and a Ba chelor of E ducation. Leo moved to being principal at Ferintosh, then principal at New Norway School. Leo worked proudly as a teacher for over 30 years, all the while staying committed to his role as Dad, and even c oaching many of h is children’s sports teams. Leo was extremely active in sports playing baseball and hockey – even playing hockey well into his 60s. Along with Leo’s values for family, education and sports, Leo loved farming. But Leo will probably most be remembered for his love to chat. He enjoyed hearing people’s stories. Leo’s passion for life, for his family, and compassion for others was a blessing, and he truly adored and loved his three children, six grandchildren and one great-grandson. Leo is survived by his loving wife of 5 2 years, Elaine; his children Darren (Cynthia), Lorrinda (David) and Randy (Erica); and his six much-adored grandchildren Justine, Cale, Katelyn, Kendyl, Mikaela and Quinn; his precious great-grandson Riley; four siblings Melvin (Lillian), Vina, Ralph (Elsie) and Les (BJ); and brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law Stan (Anneliese), Len (Pat), Louise (Stan), Shirley (Bob) and Ron. Leo was predeceased by his parents John and Jenny; sisters Jesse and Irene; and brother Louis. Funeral services were held on Wednesday, October 26, 2 011 at 1: 00 p.m. from Camrose United Church (4829-50 Street, Camrose) with Mary Ann Pastuck officiating. Inurnment took place in Valleyview Cemetery, Camrose. Memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to the charity of one’s choice. T o send condolences, please visit www.burgarfuneralhome.com.

Delmer Albin Davidson was born on May 19, 1944 in Camrose, Alberta. He grew up on the family farm at Joseph Lake with his six brothers and sisters. He frequently spoke of t he “good old days”, all the chores done before the long trek to school in the mornings. Del eventually left the nest and worked a f ew jobs before starting up h is company in Medicine Hat, eventually finding his way to Hanna. Del enjoyed the classics, whether it was a movie, airplane or a ca r – the older the better. “They just don’t make them like they used to you know.” He also enjoyed camping and golfing. Del was a very generous man and enjoyed the act of giving, from the infamous “Sante Clause” to making sure his coworkers were well looked after. But the most important things in Del’s life were his grandkids. Lukas, Jax and Jorja were the lights in his life. Del is survived by his parents Arnold and Ada Huebner of Tofield; his daughter Dezerée Strauss (Blaine) of Forestburg; three grandchildren Lukas, Jax and Jorja; siblings Jarrett Huebner (Shirley) of E dmonton, Clarence Huebner (Carol) of Hay L akes, Terrance Huebner (Donna) of Hay L akes, Annabelle Heinz (Richard) of Camrose, and Robert Huebner of Tofield; nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends. Del was predeceased by his father Carston Davidson (1945), brother Ryan Davidson, sister Shirley Radawetz (2001) and son Quinton Davidson (1984). A Memorial Service was held in Hay Lakes on Tuesday November 1, 2011. Pastor Bolstad officiated the service. As an expression of sympathy, donations may be made to Hanna Hospital Auxiliary Foundation, P.O.

A year filled with new experiences By Dan Jensen

Jason Robert Knudson June 26, 1987 – November 15, 2010 It’s been one year since you’ve been gone, A year we thought was far too long. Thoughts of you still bring laughter and tears, As they always will through the coming years. Your face is missed dearly and your smile is desired, If only you knew all the love you’ve inspired. If only we could have one more hour, month or year, A thought we all share and hold very near. During your time here on earth, you touched our hearts and showed us life’s true worth. We are glad to have shared a moment with you and are honoured to have k nown you. I now truly believe that only the good die young! We miss you, Jason, and love you, too. Loving you always and forever, Lori, family and many friends

In loving memory of

Alice Kushnerik who passed away on November 4, 2005 Six years have passed since that sad day, When one we loved was called away; God took her home, it was His will, But in our hearts, she liveth still. You are loved and missed by all, Your family In loving memory of

Ryan Henderson February 1, 1983 – November 9, 2009 Remember him with a smile today, He was not one for tears. Reflect instead on memories Of all the happy years. Recall to mind the way he spoke, And all the things he said. His strength, his courage, the way he lived, Remember these instead. He was a very special man, His eyes that shone with laughter, So much of him that never dies, But lives on ever after. Love always, Mom, Dad and Ashley “No day shall erase you from the memory of time.” Love Lindsay, Trevor and Ethan Always remembered

Ryan Henderson February 1, 1983 – November 9, 2009 When we think of y ou, we smile, remembering your caring, sense of humour, your little jokes and the love you gave. You will always be there in our hearts. Love Grandpa and Grandma P.

The last two months have been full of new experiences for Feyannie Hung. Since arriving in Camrose August 31, the 15-year-old Rotary Club of Camrose Daybreak exchange student from Taiwan has climbed a mountain, attended two hockey games, curled, and dressed up for an evening of looking for Halloween treats. "It is all so new and so different," said Hung. One of the things Hung has noticed most is how much bigger and roomier Canada is than Taiwan, which has 23 million people crowded into a space the size of Vancouver Island. "Everything is bigger here: the house, the truck and the country," said Hung. "It isn't like it is a t home where I live with my parents in a tiny apartment in the capital city of Tai Pei." Hung will be staying with four Rotary host families during her year in Canada, starting with Larry and Patrice Johnson. "I thought it would be best if she stayed with us first so I could see how she was doing at school and if there were going to be any problems, which there have not," said Patrice, who is pa st president of the Daybreak Rotary Club of Camrose and teacher at the Composite High School. "It is really fun for Larry and I to have her because we don't have any kids at home anymore. Every night we sit down at supper to talk and find out what kind of day she has had." Hung said everyone with whom she has come into contact has been very nice. "There was a welcome party for me last week that was really nice," she said. Hung's father is chair of a construction company in Taiwan, while her mother works in insurance. In the time they have been separated from each other they have been able to keep in contact through the Skype program. "They say they miss me a lot

but it seems I don't have the time to miss them because I have been doing so much," said Hung. While the Johnsons try to accommodate her by cooking the dishes she likes, Hung has had to adjust to a d ifferent diet that includes more potatoes than rice and noodles. "Here you have potatoes for every meal," said Hung. "In Taiwan every meal has rice or something that is made with rice – rice noodles and rice hamburgers. We also have soup for every meal. Here in Canada it is a d rink of water or something else." Hung spent the Thanksgiving weekend at Canmore, where she and her counsellor were able to do a b it of rock climbing and enjoy the views of the Canmore valley. By the time she got back home she had bruises all over her legs. "I really loved it," she said. "I have never seen a view that was so beautiful." More recently, Hung attended a R otary conference with the 22 other exchange students in Rotary District 5370. "It was like a little United Nations gathering with teens from all over the world waving the flags of their country," she said. On a trip to Edmonton, Hung visited West Edmonton Mall, where she marvelled over the wave pool and indoor skating rink, not to mention the many shopping opportunities. "I spent a little bit of money," she explained, laughing. "We have lots of malls in Taiwan but nothing as big as that. Hung was also impressed with the food court. "You could get everything you wanted to eat," she said. "In Taiwan you have to go to different streets for different types of foods. At t he food court everything was together." Hung is happy to share about Taiwan with everyone who will listen. She notes that her country is w ell-known for the manufacture of computers like

Acer and HTC cell phones, and is home to the winner of this year's LPGA tour. On September 30, 2007, the ruling Democratic Progressive Party approved a resolution asserting separate identity from China and called for the enactment of a new constitution for a "normal country". It also called for general use of "Taiwan" as the island's name, without abolishing its formal name, the Republic of China. Hung is taking mostly Grade 10 option courses at CCHS, which means she will have to take her normal Grade 10 schooling when she goes back to Taiwan next July. "I have never taken classes

in cosmetology, drama or fashion before," she said. Hung hasn't decided what she wants to do for a career, but wouldn't be surprised if it has something to do with music or photography. "I love music and I can write lyrics to songs," she said. "As for photography I took more than 900 photos in just a few days at the Rotary conference." One thing Hung is still waiting to experience is the Canadian winter. "In Taiwan the coldest temperature I have ever experienced is two degrees," she said. "I've been told that in Canada the temperatures can go down to minus 30 or even minus 40."

CCHS getting ready for next Challenge Day By Murray Green

The Camrose Composite High School will be holding a Challenge Day involving about 120 students on Tuesday, Nov. 29, to change the way students view other classmates. The Challenge Day vision is that all children live in a w orld where they feel safe, loved and celebrated. "The Challenge Day is designed to stop all forms of bullying and oppression. It gives students an awareness that just because people are different, it doesn't mean we need to look at them that way. It is about acceptance and understanding," said program leader Joanne Miske. A full day of activities will be led by principal Jim Ofrim, and fellow staff member Joanne Miske and other committee members. "We will have about 115 students, and five or six will be from Charlie Killam School. We will have between 25 to 30 adult facilitators. They will be a cross section of people from Rotary members to our DARE officer." The Challenge Day mission is to provide youth and their communities with experiential

programs that demonstrate the possibility of love and connection through the celebration of diversity, truth and full expression. "We like to have a lot of Grade 10 participation because they then have the option of joining our Be the Change group at the high school," added Ms. Miske. "We will be recruiting a few students who are in Grade 12, because they participated in the event when they were in Grade 10. We want some of that leadership in the program. There will be approximately 20 of

those students on top of the 115 we have planned." Ms. Miske said the students who have been through the program before help spread the word about the Challenge Day and they create excitement about it. "We pick students at random, but we also try to select some from each of the groups throughout the high school," she explained. "We want someone from each of the groups such as arts, athletics or gay straight alliance group. It gives us a good cross section of students."

The CCHS Challenge Day is sponsored locally by the Camrose Daybreak Rotary, Enerplus, Battle River School Division and the Camrose Kodiaks. The Be the Change group carries the message from the Challenge Day to the other students throughout the rest of the year. "The group forms after Challenge Day. It includes students who want to make a difference. These students are willing to make a c hange about themselves. They are a g roup that likes to do good things around the school and it is open to everyone. They run with the energy that was created at Challenge Day and it all depends on the group of people that come together." They schedule events such as random acts of kindness, fundraisers and events to encourage student involvement. "The message we want to get across is that no matter how different people are, they are still people. We shouldn't be judging others and at the end of the day, we are pretty much all the same, and to accept others as they are."
