Haroun and the Sea of Stories, written by Salman Rushdie and adapted for the stage by Tim Supple and David Tushingham, is not the kind of play typically presented by students of Augustana Campus, at least in recent years. Recent performances have been labelled a bit racy and not always appropriate for attendees of all ages. There is something in this year’s performance which will resonate with, inform and entertain people of all ages. Drama students and community cast members, along with production crew and teaching staff, have been working hard to prepare for opening night and a string of shows November 14 through November 24. Tickets for the Haroun and the Sea of Stories will be sold at the door for each performance. See complete details about this lively stage adventure in this issue of the home team paper.

Camrose Economic Development officer provides update By Dan Jensen

The City of Camrose economic development department is looking forward to 2013. "We're going to be following a plan," explained City of Camrose economic development officer Ray Telford in a presentation to Camrose Chamber of Commerce members Nov. 7. The plan will have time lines for the achievement of specific objectives so the depart-

ment can see whether or not progress is being made. "We will know every year how it is working because every year there will be reports made to City council on the availability of land, the number of new businesses we have out there and which partners we are working with," said Telford. The plan was prepared for the City of Camrose by Western Sky Management following meetings with community

groups in which the retention of existing businesses was identified as the number one priority. "We know that we need to work with our existing businesses to ensure that our market is getting a lot better," said Telford. "We need to spend more time with existing businesses to find out what they want, what they need and how we are going to make Camrose an even better place for them. We will work with new businesses coming in,

Footwear that’s perfect for you and winter!

however the existing businesses are the ones that are the cornerstone. They are the ones that are going to have a lot of information about how Camrose is going to be great." The meetings also stressed the need for the City to do a better job of communicating with organizations like the Camrose Regional Exhibition, the Chamber of Camrose and Rural

Alberta Business Centre, and to develop a new economic development brand. "Branding isn't just a logo or a slogan; branding really is the bottom line of the product, something that makes it very unique," said Telford. "We are working on the branding for the City and promoting our uniqueness in the area." Continued on page 21

NTL 4GFW admat 11/2012


A few weeks ago, Bill McKibben, author, activist and environmentalist, visited the Augustana-Camrose community, as part of Augustana’s annual academic theme on Resilience. McKibben is the author of numerous articles and books about the environment, including The End of Nature published in 1989 and regarded as the first book on climate change written for a general audience. For many, McKibben is considered to be "the planet’s best green journalist" and “probably the most important environmentalist" in the United States. McKibben’s focus was on the irreversible environmental damage humans have visited upon our planet and he touched upon a number of important topics, ranging from “breaking” the Arctic ice cap, to the Keystone XL pipeline project, to fracking, to the Alberta tar sands. Each of these is part and parcel of a broader issue. It has become clear to many that consumerist societies and their dependence on non-renewable resources have led to all kinds of environmental damage, especially the global warming that is behind much of the erratic weather we have witnessed in recent years. The annoyingly media-named “Superstorm Sandy” is just the latest example. Only four years after Katrina devastated New Orleans, Sandy laid waste to the north eastern seaboard causing tremendous damage and harm. While not as deadly as Katrina, over 100 people have been confirmed dead, roughly one million people are still without power, and early damage estimates put Sandy’s cost in the range of $30-$50 billion. All this comes after the worst U.S. drought in half a century which experts have determined was not a random occurrence, but rather an inevitable consequence of global warming. So what can be done? Well, according to McKibben and others, there’s not a whole lot can be done to reverse the damage. However, we can start to adjust to the new world we are creating and perhaps prevent things from getting worse – if we start now. Surely, the environmental movement, it all its manifestations, deserves our undivided attention and we should all get involved in whatever way we can. If we don’t, Mother Nature will take things into her own hands and right the “human problem” in a very unforgiving manner. One interesting way to raise attention to the issue and coordinate collective action is the grassroots climate campaign known as Founded by McKibben in 2008, he drew its name from climate scientist James E. Hansen's contention that any atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide above 350 parts per million was extremely detrimental to our planet. Current levels are approximately 392 parts per million and merit our attention. Since its creation, has coordinated some 15,000 rallies in 189 countries. The organization’s most notable impact was its role in temporarily halting the Keystone XL pipeline through large-scale organizing and protests. Unfortunately, for the most part, has been primarily a non-political organization, having focused on developing as an organizing body, rather than a political one. As concerned citizens we can participate in rallies and demonstrations, recycle, grow trees and vegetable gardens, car-pool, support bike-shares, reduce our consumption, and do all the little things that hopefully make a difference. But clearly, these types of bottom-up, grassroots initiatives are not enough on their own. What is also required is responsible, courageous, and effective topdown government action, which is sadly lacking in many countries, including our own. In fact, given the abysmal record of our federal government with respect to measures to reduce human-induced climate change and its undiscerning support of the oil industry, it would seem that the Harper government has embraced global warming denial over scientific facts. The most successful social movements are those that can marshal enough human and material resources necessary to successfully challenge government policy and encourage political change. Ultimately, any meaningful environmental action requires that governments across the globe take the lead, and we as citizens, must make our voices heard and vote the appropriate political parties into power.

Battle River Watershed Alliance preparing recommendations By Dan Jensen

The Battle River Watershed Alliance will be making recommendations to municipalities, landowners and the provincial government early next year on how to manage drought and reduce waterstream pollutants. The recommendations are being developed based on comments BRWA has received in a series of workshops throughout the watershed area in August and September. "We're going to ask the people of the area to give us their thoughts on the recommendations as well as input on how they see them being implemented,"

said BRWA planning coordinator Sarah Skinner. The workshops on water quality indicated there are increasing concerns about non point source pollutants that can be carried in runoff and the need to protect the Battle River from increasing nutrient levels. "People we talked with commented on increased levels of algae in the river systems and local lakes," said Skinner. A State of the Battle River and Sounding Creek Watersheds Report produced by the BRWA in 2011 indicated that nutrients pose the greatest threat to water quality in the Battle River, with

nutrient levels receiving a rating of marginal in 2008/08 and poor in 2008/09. It further noted that excess nutrient levels may lead to excessive aquatic plant and algae growth, also known as "algal blooms," which can lead to severe fluctuations in dissolved oxygen levels. "Fish and other aquatic organisms depend on this dissolved oxygen to live," said the report, "and decreased oxygen levels increase the stress of these organisms." Water quality, including nonpoint source pollution management, point source pollution management, and ground, surface and source water protection, was

identified in the BRWA report as one of four pressing issues affecting the watershed that needs to be addressed in the coming years. The other three were water quantity, including drought management, surface water quantity and ground water quantity, biodiversity, which includes protected and environmentally significant areas, fish and wildlife, and native and non-native invasive species, and land management, which includes wetlands, land use practices and riparian areas. "The report created the framework for the watershed planning process that we are now entering into," explained Skinner.

"We're hoping next year to start on two additional areas and hold workshops like we did on drought and water pollutants, but those have yet to be determined." Approximately 122,500 people lived in the Battle River and Sounding Creek watersheds in 2006, with almost a quarter of those living in the cities of Camrose and Wetaskiwin. A report on the "Economic Activity and Ecosystem Services in the Battle River Basin in 2011 estimated the monetary value of ecological goods and services in the Battle River and Sounding Creek watersheds at $5.05 billion per year.

Curling club attracts two major events for 2013 By Murray Green

With rumblings that mixed doubles will be the new rave in curling, the Rose City Curling Club jumped the gun to attract two events for early next year. Curling promoter Ken Duggan and the local club didn't waste any time in submitting bids to garner the mixed doubles provincials. "Who would have thought even a year ago that the Rose City Curling Club, or any curling club in Canada for that matter, would be pumped to be hosting a couple of mixed doubles curling events," said Ken. "It is going to go from nowhere to just exploding on the scene. Because it is going to be an Olympic event, it suddenly catches the eye of every curler in the world. We will be the first ones out of the gate to host an event like this." Plans are now underway for the local organization to be among the first curling clubs to embrace this new game that appears poised to become a fixture in the sport of curling scene, which players are tentatively planning to try. "The reason is that the World Curling Federation is lobbying the International Olympic Committee to establish an additional medal event for curling at the Olympic Games, and the new game of choice is for mixed doubles curling," explained Ken. "This event may well be introduced at the 2018 Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. At this time, literally nobody in Canada plays this variation of the game; people may only be familiar with this game where it has been played at the Continental Cup of Curling, but it looks like all that is about to change."

This curling season will be the sixth year for a world mixed doubles curling championship and it will be held in Fredericton, New Brunswick. Canada’s best showing in these championships was a third place in 2009, and the Canadian Curling Association wants that to change. "The Canadian teams that have participated in the world championships have been selected from the Canadian mixed championship team. That team has been asked to declare which two of those players will represent Canada, and they have been playing each other to decide. This year, for the first time, there will be an actual Mixed Doubles Canadian Curling Championship held in Leduc. The Rose City Curling Club plans to get in on some of the mixed doubles curling action this year as well. "The club has plans for a mixed doubles cash bonspiel to give potential players a chance to try the game before going right to a Canadian or a provincial mixed doubles championship," added Ken. "This is going to help us with the Camrose Curling Academy as well, because the students will want to learn the mixed doubles game." The Rose City Curling Club will test the game in mixed doubles league. "Our Monday night mixed league is going to try alternating some regular games with mixed doubles games to learn because they have extra ice time," said Kim Miller, of the curling club. "Tawnya Copland wants to sort out the rules and have teams try it." There is nothing more enticing then throwing some cash on the line. "The timing is right for us to hold a cash spiel from Jan. 31 to Feb. 3, 2013, with a 32-team limit and a total of

The Rose City Curling Club is hoping to attract some local curlers, such as Adam Enright, to try the new mixed doubles game.

$9,000 in cash up for grabs," Ken said. "Who knows, if there is enough interest, this can be run with 48 teams and a total of $14,000 in prize money. It is hoped that this will attract some competitive players and aspiring mixed doubles teams from across Canada." The provincial mixed doubles championships have been set for Feb. 15 to 17. "This inaugural provincial mixed doubles will be limited to 32 teams, which will be provided by 12 teams from the Southern Alberta Curling Association, 12 from the Northern Alberta Curling Association and eight from the Peace Curling Association," Ken

further explained. "We were fortunate to be ready to hold an event like this. It will be held on our regular ice and we don't need to use the EnCana Arena." Although the curling club held the men's and women's provincials to make a little money for the local club, it will be looking at this event as a great public awareness opportunity. "I'm hearing from a lot of people that they want to come and watch, so it could be very well attended," said Kim. "People want to come and watch something new and exciting. We have a good group of volunteers, so we are not worried." The Alberta Curling Feder-

ation and the provincial regional associations are unsure what to expect for entries and interest in this first year of mixed doubles championship curling. "The winner of this event will go on to represent Alberta in the Canadian Mixed Doubles Championship, which will be held in Leduc, March 14 to 17, 2013," said Ken. The game is played with one male and one female in an eight end game with both teams throwing five rocks each end. "There are a few other variations to the rules that make this game unique, one of the beneficial aspects is that the game can be played in about 70 to 75 minutes, so it is easier to run an event with a larger number of teams, and mixed doubles curling can provide a lot of flexibility to curling clubs looking for ways to fill their ice time available to new curling leagues." It is also a fun game for fans to watch. "With only two curlers, one has to throw and the other give the broom, they have to hustle to provide the sweeping. There won't be any other teammates to do it for them. It is intended to reduce the amount of sweeping in the game," said Ken. "I'm sure it will test a few marriages, but it will be a lot of fun for spectators." This summer the rocks were completely refurbished in preparation for the curling academy and given the fact they haven't been adjusted in 20 years. The rocks were ground and matched according to weight. The running surfaces now give the rocks more curling action. "Don (Miller) has always been a good ice maker, but with the rocks now having more curling action, it makes the curling even better now," said Ken.

Program addresses barriers to walking in Camrose By Murray Green

Camrose has a great trail system and several good walking paths for recreation. But, a workshop was held to see if the city could do an even better job of providing enough trails or safe places for walkers. Alberta Health Services' health promotion facilitator Graham Matsella gathered several people from Camrose to hold a two-day workshop to learn what Camrose can improve on. "We want to increase people's activity levels to reduce chronic disease. We want to assist people on living healthy, active lifestyles," said Graham. "This approach is called Walk 21, which was started in England. We started the Walkability Alberta last year with five communities. This year, we are using strictly Alberta funding and we are working with five more communities." Mayor Marshall Chalmers signed the International Charter for Walking and declared the workshop open to about 25 attendees on Nov. 5. "We brought in speakers to talk about walkability. We work through Walk

Graham Matsella, health promotion facilitator for Alberta Health Services, examines some of the concerns raised at the workshop.

21's charter for walking and principles to address the different barriers of walking within

the community. The goal of the workshop is to create an action plan with short, medium and

long term outcomes that communities can improve on for walkability." Graham gathered information and will make a report of his findings for the city. "I will be writing a report about the work that we did through the two-day workshop and provide recommendations," said Graham. "This will be worked on into the new year. I will share the report with my Camrose contacts for review in late January. They will provide any additions or changes that they think are needed in the report. It will go to desktop publishing in February. There should be a complete desktop published report by March. I hope that things will move quicker, but I have learned to take caution when making these time estimates." Health Services asked for applicants and one of those was our city. Camrose was selected as a pilot site in the Alberta initiative in an effort to get more people walking. "A lot of the communities in Alberta are working towards making the downtown area easier to walk around. Some communities are very impressive

and Camrose is one of those. The downtown core is really nice. Now we should find ways to emulate that in other parts of the city," explained Graham. "We want to increase accessibility because that is a priority and changes are being made. No matter how well a city is doing with easy access, there are still ways to improve on it." The workshop examined such things as infrastructure near the walking paths. "We look at providing benches, making sure there is water available and that there are washrooms available," added Graham. "As new communities are developed, we want to ensure that recreational walking is part of the planning process. Reduction in speed can be obtained through the overall design process. We talk about allowing for environmental concerns and how to reduce crime. Some of those things are not always talked about in Camrose. It might not be a huge priority, but some policies could be adjusted to improve walking and the willingness to use the trails. Sometimes adding a light or two makes a big difference."

PEN POINTS by Berdie Fowler

Let us not just look the other way! Statistics tell us that Alberta has the highest reported rate of spousal abuse of all Canada’s provinces, and also that exposure to family violence is the second most common form of mistreatment of children and youth. Self-reported incidents reveal that seniors over 65 are also being abused and it is suspected that most cases are never reported. The occurrence of abusive treatment will not subside until the public becomes more aware of how serious a matter it is. In an effort to inform, the month of November has been declared Family Violence Prevention Month in Alberta with special emphasis on the harmful and long lasting impact on children who are abused or are witnesses to abuse. It is a sad fact that domestic violence is self-perpetuating. Children who see spousal abuse in their own homes grow up to think that that is normal behavior so are most likely to become adults who are themselves either abusers or abused and the cycle continues, generation after generation. Abusive relationships are found in all categories of society regardless of financial standing, ethnicity, religious faith, race, or whatever. The harmful effects, especially on the development of children, can be physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Scars and bruises are obvious signs of physical maltreatment and will usually heal; however, the pain and hurt of emotional, mental and spiritual neglect are equally brutal, are not so obvious, and can too often be overlooked and last a lifetime. The good news is that the cycle of violence can be broken. There are programs for children and for women and men whether abusers or abused. Successful programs for children include helping them understand that violence is not normal and not acceptable; that they are not responsible for their parents’ violence, and there are alternatives. They are helped to express feelings, deal with anger, shame and uncertainty about their safety and their future. For abused women (and children) there are shelters although not enough to meet the demand. Shelters provide immediate protection from physical abuse as well as care and counselling for a limited period of time. It is usually women who are victims of physical abuse but not to be ignored is the fact that there are also abusive women, perhaps not so much physically but in other equally harmful ways. For men there are programs based on the assumption that violence is a learned behavior and can be changed. The first step is to realize that their violence is inappropriate and has harmful effects on both themselves and others. The next step is to accept responsibility for their actions and commit to changing their violent ways. That must be followed by an action plan to implement the change. That’s the really hard part but it has been tested and found to work. We are fortunate in Camrose to have access to a women’s shelter and to counselling for men, women and children. For information call the women’s shelter at 780.672.1035. Each of us can help. If you know of someone in immediate danger, call 911. If you suspect that a child is being abused by a parent or guardian, call the police, Camrose and District Social Services, or the 24-hour Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-387KIDS(5473). One may also call the 24-hour Family Violence Info Line toll-free at 310-1818. Let us not just look the other way!

I found Ms. Carmelle Mohr’s letter of the 23rd October troubling on several levels. Since I have never met Ms. Mohr, I googled her name to learn something about her, and I found she is a dedicated and idealistic young lady who wishes to make the world a better place. She has tried to help the less fortunate among us and care for the environment. But it is equally important that our efforts produce the desired outcome. Idealism and dedication move us but understanding keeps us on the proper path. Ms. Mohr’s letter is an invitation to learn about hydraulic fracturing or “fracking” and its effect on our communities. But the words and phrasing she chose, and the website she invites us to visit, offer a one-sided point of view. For example, the website headlines Josh Fox’s movie “Gasland” which Jim Marston of the Environmental Defense Fund admits is misleading. “Obviously, Gasland has a lot of pretty dramatic events” but he “would differ with Josh is his conclusions that those problems were all related to fracking.”. In fact, the movie uses innuendo and drama to demonize a technology which, according to studies done by a multitude of agencies, has less environmental impact than any other current technology. Another concern often associated with fracking is water consumption. The technology requires a “lot of water” but what we are not told is that the water demands for fracking are among the lowest in every sector of energy production. By far the largest user of fresh water is the biofuel industry which needs an astounding 5,000 to 15,000 times as much water for the same amount of energy. Ms. Mohr also mentions but does not explain the idea of “peak oil” and implies this means we might “all need to be farmers.” Peak oil is a flawed theoretical concept which on its surface seems reasonable but which, upon examination, falls apart. The first time I heard of the concept was 1970 when the Club of Rome predicted we would run out of oil by 1990. Obviously, this crisis never happened. Since then I have seen dozens of such predictions none of which have come to pass. This is because the peak oil equation, like all such apocalyptic predictions, fails to account for human ingenuity. We didn’t run out of

oil because we discovered new sources and new technologies. Human ingenuity has made the prosperity and comfort we enjoy possible to a degree unimaginable a few generations ago, not only in the West, but around the world. The ubiquitous T-shirts, blue jeans, and sneakers worn by people who had nothing but animal skins a few years ago are evidence of that. The food and medicine we send out are products of those technologies. If we shut down innovative and clean energy sources everybody will lose. It isn’t a perfect world, but just ask your grandparents what life was like when they were young. Dave Gosse, Camrose Family physicians

“There is a calmness to a life lived in gratitude, a quiet joy.” Ralph H. Blum Nov. 12 to 17 marks the College of Family Physicians of Canada’s ninth annual Family Doctor Week in Canada. The College proudly acknowledges the outstanding contributions of Canadian family doctors for their dedication to their patients and the delivery of high quality health care. As executive director of the Camrose Primary Care Network (PCN), I am also pleased to highlight this important week. As many of you know a fundamental part of the Camrose PCN’s vision is to support family doctors in delivering coordinated, quality rural primary care with the support of other health providers. Over the past four years the PCN has worked with family doctors in a variety of settings including the Smith Clinic, Gemini Health Centre, Bashaw Medical Clinic, Daysland Medical Clinic and St. Mary’s Hospital. We are very proud of the local PCN programming that has been developed – dedicated to patients and patient care. Often physician recognition efforts focus on the physician’s clinical performance. This year - in the spirit of Family Doctor Week – I would like to also recognize the efforts of the PCN board of directors which includes Dr. Nichol (PCN physician lead), Dr. Torok-Both, Dr. Bredesen, Dr. Peters and Dr. Groenewald. Each of the PCN board of directors shows a commitment to working in a collaborative environment, leading the way in providing guidance and expertise, making the Camrose PCN what it is today. Each illustrates physician engagement by supporting and involving themselves in committees, clinical pathway development and championing service or quality. On behalf of the PCN, I want to take this opportunity to recognize and thank the PCN board of directors and all the PCN family doctors for all they do. Stacey L. Strilchuk, executive director, Camrose PCN Whose interests?

The famous person known as Edmund Burke said, "All that

is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." Now, first of all, I would like to remind you that I am not even suggesting that I am of anything of an expert except one Albertan with an opinion. Second of all, I am not suggesting that the government is evil. I am suggesting that when we see things that are not right or fair, and say nothing, that thing will triumph and we will be just as guilty as those who are doing the injustice by just sitting there doing nothing. Our MLA for WetaskiwinCamrose was first elected as a MLA for this area on March 3/2008. I had attended the meetings which he had run for that position. Prior to running for the position of being the MLA for this area, he served as a partner with the law firm Andreassen Olson Borth where his practice focused on real estate and counselling small business, assisting farmers, families, seniors and dependent adults. We are a community that has so much to be thankful for what this man has done. Today he currently serves as deputy chair of the premier's council on the status of persons with disabilities, chair of human resources, citizenship and multicultural education committee as well as a member of the standing committees on public accounts, private bills and health. If anybody would like to look up this data on his website, I really do encourage you to do so. November 6 was a very important day for two reasons. First of all, the Americans vote in a new president and the Albertan P.C. MLAs who are on the legislature's members service committee voted in favour of an eight per cent pay increase. The MLAs from the opposition all voted no. So, why is this such an important event in the life of our province? By voting this eight per cent increase, the MLAs who voted yes, once again failed to put the interest of Alberta's hard working tax payers first. Since the majority of the voters in this area has elected Mr. Verlyn Olson, he must be a hard-working MLA who has the interest of those who voted him to represent them in the legislature. So I would like to encourage Mr. Olson to ask his party why did they have their members in that special committee vote yes? Was this done in the interest of all Albertans who placed them to represent them in this great government? How could they call this eight per cent raise a 20 per cent cut? I would like to encourage every person who cares to ask Mr. Olson if he understands that most tax payers did not send him to the Legislature in order to vote the MLAs a raise. I would encourage everybody as well as Mr. Olson and his team to ask themselves, why are MLAs elected to this great legislature? Whose interest are they supposed to serve? This is just something to think about. Lorne W.P Vanderwoude Camrose

Economic development update


Continued from page 2

Telford said the City of Camrose economic development is taking a different approach this year in promoting the lifestyle that is available to all residents of Camrose, not just seniors. He noted that the ads that have been taken out in publications focus on telling people that Camrose is the best place to start a business, meet new people and neighbours or participate in activities. Telford said the City of Camrose will be partnering with Battle River School Division in January to create a new Junior Achievement Program. "We know the youth of the community are important and we want them to stay here. Anything we could do would be great." Telford said the City will be interviewing close to 100 businesses in the next year to obtain locally relevant information about employment levels, the number of full-time and parttime workers, the total number of employees, and the number of businesses that have corporate as opposed to private ownership. "It is very important from a growth and economic development perspective that we get that information. We will be using some questions from the social development committee because, of course, they are interested in planning for employee issues, whether it be daycare or affordable housing." Telford said it is wrong to think that the majority of new jobs in a community come from new businesses. "This is the Canada stat: seventy-six per cent of the new job growth in any community comes from existing businesses. New businesses coming in account for nine per cent of the job growth and entrepreneurship is responsible for about nine per cent. If we have 650 businesses in Camrose and half of them expanded by one employee you would be looking at another 300 employees. To get a business here with 300 employees would take a long time."

The CAMROSE BOOSTER November 13, 2012

Decorate Your Home for Christmas Contest Camrosians are clearly in the Christmas spirit this year. Retailers report brisk sales of Christmas decor and gift shopping is obviously in full swing. With great fall weather, many homes are already reflecting the beauty and awe of the Christian holiday season. If you feel you have successfully captured the wonder of Christmas by decorating the front of your home, or if you know of somebody around town who has done a masterful job with lights or other means of holiday enhancement, we’d like to know. Telephone, email or fax us the address of any home you believe will provide joy for others. Each week now until Christmas The Camrose Booster will publish a list of addresses of decorated homes located within our simply irresistible city which are “must sees”.

Judging by a team with a keen eye for perfection On Wed. Dec. 12, a panel will travel to the address of every home which has been recommended to us by you and fellow readers of The Camrose Booster. Our judges - Mayor Marshall Chalmers, Sheila DeJesus, Carole May Coty and Tom Gerling will be accompanied by a professional agent from the Re/Max sales team. It will be the responsibility of our judges to choose the home they believe to be most appropriately decorated for Christmas, 2012.

Get Decorating, Camrose! The Camrose Booster will pay $100 towards your Dec. power bill if your home is judged to be the best.

Rose City Curling club has an exciting year planned Submitted by Jennifer McDonald

Welcome to the 2012-13 Camrose curling season. This year of curling should prove to be very exciting with the mixed doubles provincial playdowns happening right here at our curling club for the first time in February. We are expecting to attract some

of the best curlers in the province for this event. A mixed doubles cash spiel will take place from Jan. 31 to Feb. 3, so watch for more details on this. At the league level, the Boman Radiator Shop Super League is into its fourth week with the Reg Enright and Gord Heiberg teams

at the top of the standings with three wins each. Ross Boman, Maurice Miller, Roger Galenza and Randal Huseby rinks are close behind with two wins each, while the Terry Soch team is on the board with one win and the Todd Lucas and Tawnya Copland

rinks are still looking for its first win. The super league is played on Friday nights starting at 7:30 p.m. so come on down to the curling rink to watch all of the action. The Rose City Farmers' Bonspiel will take place from Nov. 12 to 16. We are still looking for teams

for this event. The ladies will be hosting a bonspiel on Nov. 23 to 25; if anyone is interested in entering a team contact Kim at or 780-672-4152. Watch for all the league updates and scores in the weekly curling report and follow us on Twitter @Rose City Curling.

Local bands to do fundraiser for Bailey By Murray Green

The Bailey Theatre will be holding a musical fall fund-raiser on Nov. 17 in an effort to keep the impressive landmark in operation in the future. Live music will be provided by some local talented bands. The Bloozhounds, Myra Marshall Band, Family Dreams and Jenie Thai will be playing on the stage. "I've always thought that showcasing local talent is central to the Bailey's role in the community," said Simon Williams, Bailey Theatre program director. "Very few up-and-coming artists typically get the chance to play a venue like the Bailey and I wanted to get the message out that supporting the Bailey ensures that local performers are given an opportunity to shine." The musicians are volunteers. "All of the acts are volunteering their time, which is another reason for "shopping local." These performers understand the importance of the Bailey and we're absolutely thrilled to be getting this level of support from them," added Simon. The Bailey Theatre will also have drink specials, door prizes and a 50/50 draw. " It's no secret that the Bailey needs financial support from the community to keep operating, and I think most Camrosians understand that, but I also want people to know this isn't about the Bailey looking for hand-outs," explained Simon. "We're working hard to provide an evening of top-notch entertainment. In addition to the feature bands, we also have a number of local celebrities on hand to emcee the event including CAM-FM's Lucas Banack, Punch Drunk Cabaret's Randy Bailer and former Bailey artistic director Nathan Huisman. We'll also have the usual 50/50 draws, raffles and door prizes that make parting with your money that much more enjoyable." The doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m. Admission by donation. "Our goal is to raise at least $10,000 for the Bailey, but perhaps the most important aspect of this event is raising awareness of how committed we are to being a positive force in the community," stated Simon. The Bailey Theatre Society told Camrose city and county council that the society may have to close the theatre's doors at the end of the year if its current financial situation does not improve.

The Bailey Theatre reported it is losing an estimated $23,000 a month. The musical fund-raiser next week is geared to giving the theatre time to book more acts into the Bailey early next year. While the Bailey Theatre Society has had a good 80 per cent occupancy rate, the revenue generated from the events has not been operating at full capacity. The Bailey Theatre was restored at a total cost of more than $8 million, with funding from various levels of governments, and several communityminded donors. The theatre's bistro operation was discontinued, except as an extension of theatre events. "The Bailey Theatre is a jewel in the downtown area," said theatre society president Judy McLean, in her submission to the county. About Time Productions, a children's theatre group, and the Rose City Roots Music Society has held regular shows at a high success rate this year. "High profile concerts and events are important in that they bring in new patrons who otherwise may not realize what a fantastic facility we have," Simon added. "The down-side is that those shows are very expensive to produce and generally not terribly profitable. That's why we'll often partner with other community groups such as Rose City Roots Music Society or the Camrose Arts Society to bring in the big names."

Four more inductees to CCHS Wall of Fame By Dan Jensen

Camrose Composite High School will be presenting distinguished alumnus awards to Ian Stewardson and Dr. Frank Hohn, a distinguished alumna award to Cindy Bailey Gordichuk and a distinguished faculty award to Rod Wensley at its annual Wall of Fame ceremony this Friday (Nov. 16). The Camrose Composite High School Wall of Fame was started to recognize former students and teachers who have established themselves as leaders in their chosen vocations and who have made significant contributions to society, to celebrate the school's proud history, and to inspire current students to challenge themselves in their future careers and in service to others. Ian Stewardson 1981

Ian Stewardson developed leadership qualities through the CCHS music program that have served as a foundation of an outstanding record of service and achievement. A graduate from the University of Calgary (B. Ed) and San Diego State University (Master of Arts). Stewardson has worked at Fort MacLeod since 1985 as a teacher, guidance counsellor, vice principal and principal. He is currently principal of G.R. David School. "One measure of respect in which his community holds him is the name given to him by Blackfoot elders – kayinni ma, which means "many captures," states Stewardson's nomination. "The name signifies the many children who have been in his care throughout his career. From the outset, Ian has been a keen and imaginative advocate of strong relations between the school and community." Stewardson has worked closely with local service clubs and media to maintain a strong profile for public education in general and his school in particular. He is a respected commu-

"Dr. Hohn's expertise in out-patient anaesthesia, dental implant reconstruction, and surgical reconstruction of congenital deformities of the face is, to employ an over-used phrase, world-class," states the nomination. "His expertise has been sought by Canadian Blood Services, the Saskatoon Health Region, and Health Canada." Dr. Hohn is active in a wide range of community service organizations.

She was also responsible for discipline and conflict resolution. Graduates from Summit have been well received throughout western Canada." Bailey Gordichuk tutors adults as a volunteer with Project Literacy. She also mentors students in the Women in Science and Engineering program at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan. She is an active volunteer in her church, in hockey tournaments, swim meets and school events. Bailey Gordichuk has comleted five marathons, including the world's biggest, the Boston Marathon.

be heard from his classroom. Rod would routinely capture his students' interest with a mad scientist routine, just before he caused an explosion. His mastery of teaching both chemistry and students was second to none, and his classes were always popular and full." Wensley worked towards an expanded science facility, and lobbied hard for the hiring of a lab assistant to help facilitate the activities in the new labs. He served as science department head for several years, and, according to the nomination, was always looking for ways to improve both his teaching and the teaching of his colleagues. "The changes he made were well received because they were practical and involved improving the quality of education in the classroom and the efficiency of the department. He was a respected mentor to science teachers, helping them to improve lab skills, to carry out various scientific procedures, and most important, to epitomize professional conduct." Wensley organized a number of staff backpacking trips as team builders. He also took a leadership role in his church and in minor hockey. He and Helen now live in Calgary, close to their grandchildren.

Dr. Frank Hohn 1980

Dr. Frank Hohn received a B.Sc. in Chemistry from the University of Alberta in 1984 and a Doctorate in Dental Surgery, also from the University of Alberta, in 1986. He completed a general residency in oral and maxillofacial surgery at the Walter C. McKenzie Health Sciences Centre, and served two years on the faculty of the University of Alberta before enrolling in an oral and maxillofacial surgery and anaesthesia residency at the Univerity of Chicago. Dr. Hohn founded Saskatoon Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Associates, and is clinical professor of oral and maxillofacial surgery at the College of Dentistry, University of Saskatchewan. He has served three terms as president of the College of Dental Surgeons of Saskatoon, is president elect of the Canadian Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, and is a Fellow of both the International College of Dentists and the Pierre Fauchaud Academy of Dentistry. He has authored multiple papers in international

Cindy Bailey Gordichuk 1973

Cindy Bailey Gordichuk established a pharmacy in a medical clinic on the Hobbema First Nations reserve, the first of its kind in Canada. She worked closely with doctors, dentists, community care nurses and community leaders to provide culturally-appropriate community health care to local residents. In Kelowna she managed a staff of 15 pharmacists at a SaveOn Foods store. In 1997 she established Summit Career College, which provides training for careers in health and education.

Rod Wensley taught at Camrose Composite High School for 20 years starting in 1981 after 16 years in Saskatchewan. "Many of the students say he was the best teacher they ever had, and with good reason," states his nomination. "He showed a great sense of humour, and a roar of laughter could often

Charlie Killam students present survey results to City council By Dan Jensen

Charlie Killam Grade 9 math and humanities students found an interesting way this fall to apply what they learned about data analysis and apply it to their own lives. The students conducted surveys asking others their own age for their opinions about life in Camrose, then presented those findings in a report to Camrose City council Nov. 6. The questions were given to them by City manager Damian Herle. "I asked him for a list of questions the City would like to know answers to and he gave us eight," said Charlie Killam math teacher Mark Chanasyk. "He came to the school and told us what he wanted them to do and what he wanted to know." The students had about a week to collect their data and another week to build both build their presentations and make their conclusions. "I cautioned them to be objective in making the conclusions," said Chanasyk. A survey of 95 students on volunteerism showed that 54 stu-

dents did not volunteer at all, compared to 35 who volunteer once or twice a week, two who volunteer three to five times a week and four who volunteer every day. The report suggested there is a sizeable number of students who would volunteer more if they had the chance, indicating they are willing to become active citizens. The report also concluded that based on the surveys, most kids between Grades 7 and 9 like

Camrose and there isn't much that needs to be changed. Fifty per cent of students surveyed indicated they like Camrose youth activities, compared to 13 who said they did not and 37 per cent who said they did not use them. Sixteen per cent said a new recreational centre would make youth activities better, while 15 per cent said things would improve if there were new walking and running trails.

Eighteen per cent expressed a need for better fields for sports. "Youth would enjoy fields for sport more than anything else," said the report. Asked whether Camrose should get a new zoo, Imax theatre, multicultural area, something else, or save the money, 42 per cent of students surveyed indicated a new Imax theatre. Most students felt the City of Camrose needed to improve the recreational areas. The Edgeworth Centre was ranked by 100 students surveyed as the facility they use the most, with the aquatic centre coming in second and the library coming in third. The trail system was ranked as the facility used the least. "We saw that the public library is used more than the skate park," said the report, "which we found was interesting considering our target demographic." The report suggested a possible way to increase the appeal of the Edgeworth Centre would be to add any number of other sport facilities, such as additional arenas or hardwood floors. It added that the aquatic centre and the

golf course meet the needs of the citizens and likely don't need any immediate changes, and that the library could potentially be advertised more, as not many people consider it when deciding what facility to use. Chanasyk was pleased with the way the students handled the assignment. "They were a little unsure about it at first but they were pretty enthusiastic once they knew what they were supposed to do. To see how they improved from where they started was pretty awesome." Chanasyk said it was good for the students hear the feedback to the survey results from the members of City council. "The questions the councillors asked made them re-think some of the conclusions that they made." City councillor Max Lindstrand praised the students for the poise they showed in presenting their findings to City council. "It gives us a good perspective of what your thoughts are about the activities that are available to you."

Camrose City Council

PROGRESS REPORT after year two of three-year term.

A progress report after two years 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 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.

development is not stagnated or hindered by current policies. It is also recognized by Council and Administration that a complete review and update of the entire Land-Use By-Law is needed. This process will be identified and discussed during this year’s budget process. Again, this is to ensure policies are designed to support, enhance and assist development, and business in our City. It will provide future economic stability and growth.

Mayor Chalmers:


Are Camrosians and the businesses of Camrose better off than they were in the fall 2010 when the current council was elected to represent the citizens of this community? Thank you for this opportunity and what a great question after serving as your Mayor for just two years. In 2010, the economy was just beginning to show an upward trend. Recognizing the opportunity to bring fresh ideas and a new direction, one of the first orders of business was to develop and approve a new Strategic Plan. Our Strategic Plan focused squarely on Economic Development, making it a top priority in our Road Map to 2015. Mid 2011 a new Economic Development Officer was hired to refocus Economic Development in our city and region. To ensure that we were going to be structured and competitive in assisting business development and retention, several initiatives have been approved, but first it is important to recognize the effort Council has put forth in keeping tax increases to a minimum. Just this past year the tax increase was kept to 2.97% (remember the Education and Lodge Authority Requisition is outside of Council’s control or authority and is on top of the 2.97%). Council is committed to keeping taxes as low as possible again for 2013. In addition Council has not increased off-site levies or development fees this term. A recent survey indicates we are very competitive in this area.

In addition to all this, a complete core service review of all city departments including Engineering, Planning and Development is currently being undertaken to ensure that each is operating as effectively and efficiently as possible. As recently reported, the Cargill Canola Crushing Plant is moving forward on their plans to build near Camrose. Once established, this will create other business opportunities. This announcement is allowing our City the opportunity to work with Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resources Ministry to ensure we secure long term sustainable water allocation which will allow for growth in all sectors including business development. This is something we have never enjoyed before so this will be a huge benefit to our growth plans if secured. Recently the City partnered with the Provincial Government and Community Futures to establish a Rural Alberta Business Center, which assists new businesses get established. An indication that confidence is building in our community to develop or purchase business property is in assessment values. Having said that, as part of the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association, we have asked the Provincial Government to consider twentyseven (27) related changes to the Assessment and Taxation process under the Municipal Government Act that are felt as detrimental to sustaining already existing businesses in addition to growth. Remember the assessment of property (industrial, commercial, residential) is guided by Provincial Legislation and not the City.

The Bailey Theatre is an historic gem located in the heart of our vibrant downtown. The theatre is more than one hundred years old and has been renovated and restored into a first class facility for the performing arts. The Bailey Theatre is owned and operated by the Bailey Theatre Society which is a private, not-forprofit society. The members of the Society, plus many others, are to be congratulated for the wonderful restoration of the Bailey!

Max Lindstrand:


By analysis the Bailey Theatre, despite being a beautiful restoration and a more functional facility than ever before, has a very bleak future without significant additional financial assistance from the City. Is the City of Camrose in a position to further assist with funding this operation, its debt and operational costs in the years ahead? Should the City be more involved financially than at present? It is important to begin by pointing out that my personal opinions are not to be interpreted as the official view of City Council. In fact, the matter of City of Camrose support for the operational costs of the Bailey is

The funding for the major capital project of renovating the Bailey came from substantial private donations as well as contributions from the three orders of government - federal, provincial and municipal. It is my understanding that the Society required a relatively small loan from a local bank in order to complete the capital project. Many Camrosians share the view that the performing arts have been “shortchanged” for far too long in Camrose. So, in brief, my answer to the questions posed is a qualified “yes”. The reason I qualify my view is that a number of related questions must be addressed, including:

In my view, it is essential that a “Camrose Arts Authority” be established to provide joint governance and management of both of these facilities. This would result in many efficiencies in terms of staffing and overall operations. Furthermore, I believe that the City of Camrose should provide an annual operational grant which is fixed and determined at the time of our annual budget deliberations. The arts facilities (the Bailey and CPAC) would then need to operate on a “break even” or profitable basis. In the short term, the Bailey Society needs to examine every possible avenue to increase revenue and decrease costs. The current operational model is not sustainable. I would also like to encourage every resident of Camrose to visit the Bailey. If you have not done so, I am sure that you are in for a pleasant surprise. Support the Bailey by attending performances! This gem is a great asset to our community and deserving of our support. Submitted by Max Lindstrand Councillor, City of Camrose

1. What steps can be taken to reduce the monthly operational deficits (currently more than $20,000)? 2. What level of cooperation can we anticipate between the Bailey and the new Camrose Performing Arts Centre? 3. What level of subsidy for the arts is acceptable to the ratepayers of Camrose? 4. What controls on the level of city assistance can be guaranteed?

The CAMROSE BOOSTER November 13, 2012


Camrose City Council PROGRESS REPORT studies have clearly indicated that CPAC will not be self-sustaining, which is not a surprise as most performing arts centres are not selfsustaining. There are really only two partners that will assume the actual operating debt for this facility, the University of Alberta and the City of Camrose; and the agreement in place puts the greatest percentage of operating debt clearly on the City.  In other words, the City of Camrose can expect an ongoing financial commitment to keeping the CPAC open and active as a community facility.

John Howard:


Much time and energy has been expended by the current City Council on the pending Performing Arts Centre. Yet many people of the community cannot foresee our collective ability to be in a position to afford operating, staffing and maintaining this facility. Are these fears realistic or unfounded? Much time and energy has been expended by the current City Council on the pending Performing Arts Centre. Yet many people of the community cannot foresee our collective ability to be in a position to afford operating, staffing and maintaining this facility.  Are these fears realistic or unfounded? The short answer to the question is, YES, these fears are realistic.  The real question is: are they founded in the reality in which the City of Camrose finds itself? The operative phrase in the question being asked is “our collective ability to be in a position to afford operating, staffing and maintaining this facility�.  The short answer, is, I believe, “no�. Our ability to do so rests on the continuing good will and participation of the people of Camrose.   From the beginning, all

 The community that might be described for the moment as the  silent partner that will make the difference as to the actual size of that operating loss. Those silent partners are the active and passive members of the Camrose arts communities.  By active, I mean the many drama, music, dance and other groups that are looking for a venue in which to perform, and their preparedness to pay the rental costs for a facility like CPAC with all of its state of the art features.  By passive, I refer to those who enjoy such performances and who will make up the audience base, and their willingness pay the necessary ticket price to attend events scheduled at CPAC.  Camrose taxpayers have for years paid the operating losses on many City owned facilities, so a clear precedent is set for such involvement. These facilities include the golf course, the swimming pool, the hockey arenas, the baseball and soccer fields, etc.  I am not afraid that those same taxpayers will not want to support the arts community.  Just as user fees cover the operating loss costs for the other city owned facilities, the same will be true for CPAC.   Just as the sports community user fees are the major contributor to the operational costs deficits of the sports facilities, the arts community user fees will be the major contributor to CPAC.  I do fear that the ability for CPAC to remain competitive in the market draw for the City of Camrose and region will require either a reduced rate to guarantee occupancy, or market rate rentals that may require ticket prices that exceed the Camrose market’s willingness to pay.  In the long term, I fear that increasing the cost of the operating debt load of all of our many facilities,

soon to include CPAC, may require enough of our mil rate to slow the development of future amenities. In Camrose, we enjoy a great quality of life; with facilities which are the envy of much larger communities, but that quality of life comes at a price; a price that all of us as taxpayers will be asked to pay.

Branden Blatz:


Public transportation was a big election issue for you and some other councillors campaigning during the last election. Do you continue to foresee a public transportation system for residents of the City of Camrose and do you envision a launch of service prior to the fall election in 2013? Thank you for the question and for the opportunity to address this issue, which continues to be a high priority for me as an elected representative of the people of Camrose. After serving two years on Council, I am convinced now more than ever that the provision of a community public transportation

service is not only a very real community need, but also a social and moral imperative. I am pleased to be able to report that real progress has been and continues to be made towards making public community transportation a reality for City residents. In November of 2010, I proposed that Council strike a public transportation advisory committee, and with the cooperation and assistance of my fellow members of Council, the Community Transportation Advisory Committee (CTAC) was established. Since that time, CTAC, whose membership is comprised of Councillor Earle Berry, seven very dedicated Community members and myself, have been very busy undertaking the design of a realistic, made-in-Camrose public transit service model. Camrose is a very demographically diverse community and its unique composition is objectively favorable to a viable public community transportation service. As a university city, we have a solid college student base, approximately double the provincial average of senior citizens, and a higher than average number of lowerincome wage earners. These specific demographic groups have been identified by CTAC as having a high ridership potential and a demonstrable need for additional Community mobility options that are financially within reach. As per our mandate, CTAC has specifically designed a transit service model that is incremental in nature that begins by addressing the most acute needs of the community first and easily adapts and expands as demand, need, and capacity dictate. This has been no small initiative and as such, it is taking a bit longer to complete than initially anticipated; however the Committee has developed what we believe is a very reasonable and viable concept that we are currently in the process of finalizing. We are striving to present our final report and recommendations, which incorporate the input of over 1,100 Camrosians, prior to the approval of the 2013-2016 budget in December. This will provide Council with the opportunity to consider incorporating the Committee’s recommendations into the budget, which would be a monumental step forward.

What strides have we made in Camrose during the present term of council in the area of economic development? Our number one priority is putting in place a Community Economic Development Plan / Strategy. This all began back in April 2012 with the selection of Western Sky Management Associates to work with council / administration and the public to assist and coordinate this project. There have been several meetings up until now including an opportunity for public input back in June. We hope to have this document in place before the end of 2012 or early 2013. The Municipal Planning Advisory committee is currently doing a review of certain sections of our land use bylaws to ensure that they meet the expectations of our developers and are user friendly. We need to make sure that the welcome sign is out. A more thorough review is planned for 2013. Building permit report for the month of Sept 2012 stands at 1.598 million dollars which represents 22% increase over Sept 2011. Overall year to date we show almost a 10% increase in Building Permits issued compared to 2011. $20,713,214 in 2011 compared to $22,769,238 in 2012. Residential leads the way with $13.1 million followed by commercial at $5.5 million. Land sales have been very good. The 18 lots that were available in Valleyview subdivision at the end of 2011have been reduced to 9. City advertising has taken a new direction and focus. From a good place to retire to the best life. Both will be promoted. Ads are running on Global, CFCW, Key83 as well as newspaper and other avenues. Construction is well underway on our new Performing Arts Centre. The newly expanded Canadian Tire Store had its grand opening just this past weekend. What a great addition to the West end as well as a tremendous asset to the city / county as well as our regional trading area that goes East to the Sask. border. We have partnered with the Province to bring the Rural Alberta Business Centre to Camrose and take up residence in the long vacant Credco building. RABC is set up to work with potential new or existing businesses in many areas. This could include start up, growing your business, marketing, meeting oneon-one with entrepreneurs to cover programs that are available for start (Continued on page 31)

up and expansion. A business link for businesses in the city as well as with our county friends. A great resource centre. Economic Development as well as other City departments has been quite Involved In meetings with Cargill, Camrose County, CN, CP and government officials since back in the spring which led to the recent Cargill announcement of the planned construction of a Canola crush plant just to the east of our city. Although it will be built in Camrose County and because of certain logistics the city of Camrose is very involved. The intent is to have the plant operational for the 2014 harvest season. This bodes well for the County, City and region as we are in the midst of canola country. There will need to be numerous open houses as well as certain approvals that have not yet been finalized prior to the beginning of the actual build. We really don’t know what spinoff there will be from this project but we can look for a decent number of new jobs as well as housing requirements and a real economic boost to our area. It is not uncommon for corporations such as Cargill to have several engineers / professional personnel on staff as well as various upper level management positions. Great for our community.

I believe have been adequately protected on the operation side through “Definitive Agreements” which were passed in May of this year. They include the Collaborative Facilities Agreement, the Construction Access Agreement, the Project Management Agreement, and the Operating Agreement. Although City Council will get credit for approving this project, the building of the Camrose Performing Arts Centre and various agreements would not have been possible without the tireless and dedicated work of the following individuals: - Former Dean Roger Epp - Current Dean Allen Berger - Pat Jensen- Executive Director of Planning, U of A - Michael Madsen- Senior Project Manager, U of A - Damian Herle, City Manager - Paul Nielsen, Community Services Manager Finally why is this such an astute decision? We are building a first class facility with a vision to accommodate growth and prosperity over the next 25 years. Arts and Culture is the largest industry in Canada.

Thinking forward one decade – when taxpayers look back to City Council of the 20102013 era, what will they view as the most astute decision of the time period and why? It is my opinion that a decade from now, the decision to build the Camrose Performing Arts Centre will rank as the most significant decision of the 2010-2013 City Council. In May of this year, planning and negotiations that started back in 2006 culminated in the approval to proceed with the construction of the Camrose Performing Arts Centre. Various partners including the province of Alberta, Camrose County, U of A, and the City of Camrose demonstrated a willingness to produce a formula for success based on trust, respect and cooperation. The project is estimated to cost $18 M. Capital costs have been addressed. They include: Provincial and County grants, Municipal Sustainability Funds, a debenture and front-ending funds that will be repaid through the fundraising campaign. The City of Camrose and U of A will share in the operating costs. The citizens of Camrose,

In this term of office, how has Camrose become even environmentally “greener” and what additional progress can be and should be achieved before the next council is elected in October, 2013? Over the past two years Camrose has most definitely become “greener’ and will continue to do so moving forward. I will attempt to recap what has been done, what is being done and perhaps what can or should be done as go forward. • The Green Action Committee is constantly searching for ideas and incentives to help reduce our footprint. They have recently budgeted $5000 for the purchase and installation of receptacles for garbage, plastics, bottles and cans as well as heavy duty stationary and secured ashtrays to be placed throughout CCC and other areas that it is felt there is a need for such. There are some logistical problems that have to be overcome in order to successfully complete this initiative. In addition we are currently exploring the possibility of applying for a $20,000 grant to help further fund this incentive. Another $1000 of the budget went for the purchase of trees that were part of the Sept. 22 tree planting event in Stoney Creek Valley. Replacing trees is an ongoing and important process that Chris Clarkson is passionate about. No question we are greener as a result of this yearly practice. • We have gone from unlimited household waste pick-up two short years ago to a three bag limit in 2012 and starting Jan.1, 2013 a maximum of two bags.

Comparing taxation levels amongst other cities is extremely difficult, if not impossible, due to such variables as: populations, location, services, facilities, policing, safety, quality of life, green spaces, water source quality, assessment mix, industry base, and heritage conservation to name a few. Nevertheless, we do compare ourselves to other cities and, generally speaking, history shows that Camrose taxation levels are above average when combining municipal taxes with the provincial education tax. It should be noted that a fourth place highest property tax ranking, out of fifteen, vs tenth place ranking, works out to approximately $36.00 per month difference. Infrastructure built in the 1940s, 1950s or 1960s for a population base of 3,000 to 8,000 doesn’t necessarily work with a population of over 17,000. Nor does it provide our future needs. Aging infrastructure requires updating or replacing for a progressive growing city. Numerous planning documents are developed for medium and long term objectives, along with budget projections. Growth studies and annexation are completed, strategic business plans, municipal sustainability plans, economic development strategy, social development strategy, parks and recreation plans, water, sewer and transportation master plans are utilized when deliberating on capital projects. Through workshops, stakeholder groups, open houses, planning sessions, and elections, the residents of Camrose have been involved with their visions into what they value about their community and what they want it to look like in the future. Additional levels of service and facilities have a direct impact on taxes.

for Taxes” as good to very good, 97% rated “Quality of Life” in Camrose as good to very good. In another survey question regarding balancing tax increases and service cuts, 12% stated “cut services to reduce taxes.” As city councillors we listen, network, attend educational sessions, talk with Camrose residents and learn from other Canadian municipalities. At the end of the day decisions must be made; while striking a balance in provision of core services, with competitiveness for attracting residents, professionals, businesses, services and visitors to our beautiful city.

Property taxation levels seem to be of concern to some Camrosians. Are Camrose taxes, residential and commercial, in line with other Alberta cities and is there any reason to anticipate significantly higher or lower taxation rates in the next five years? The comment, “property taxation levels seem to be of concern to some Camrosians,” is not unique to Camrose alone. These comments are echoed throughout Canada as councillors gather to discuss collective issues while attending annual Federal and Provincial Municipality association meetings. In the 2011 ISPOS Public Affairs Citizen Satisfaction Survey completed in Camrose, 7% stated the number one issue is taxation for them. However, also in the results, 78% rated “Value

Our community’s tremendous volunteer base speaks volumes of the pride of our city and what we’re building together. I believe we should embrace what we have and continue to build on our strengths and heritage. There probably is a premium we pay to assure “quality of life” as we know it in Camrose. Does it make Camrose a better community today and in the foreseeable future? Does it help the lives of our children, families, seniors and the business community? Yes, I believe the premium is worth it. Where will taxes be in the next five years? I would honestly have to say that I don’t anticipate significantly lower taxes over the next five years. Council must work hard to seek new revenue sources, ensure Provincial and Federal Grants are inflation indexed, partnerships utilized and foster creativity, thus, strategically positioning our community for opportunities in economic development outcomes – more jobs, expanded health care services, culture and arts, education options, housing etc., which a growing city requires to complete their asset base.

Greg Wood:


The Edgeworth Centre, a new City Hall, Public Works headquarters, and Performing Arts Facility are each and collectively very expensive propositions in capital and operational costs. What will be the impact on Camrose taxpayers going forward in the likely event of rising interest rates, and assuming continued marginal economic growth of the city? Specifically with respect to interest rates, the rates are fixed at the time of the project. In that light, rising interest rates are not a concern in itself once the projects are given the final approval to proceed. The current borrowing for the Performing Arts Centre will be locked in somewhere in the 3% range. The Edgeworth Centre has been fully absorbed into the tax levy subject to the inflationary impact of ongoing operating costs. The projected impact of the Performing Arts Centre on the tax levy is approximately 1% for 2013 and an additional 1.5% in 2014. The two projects in the planning stages (City Hall and Public Works) are not heavily reliant on borrowing however they will be using up grants that could be used for other purposes. Indirectly these projects have an indirect upward impact on the tax levy to the extent these grants could be used on other projects. (Continued on page 33)

Camrose City Council PROGRESS REPORT (Continued from page 32)

Unlike the Edgeworth and Performing Arts Centre which were new facilities added to the mix, the pending projects are replacements of existing facilities and should not substantially increase operating costs once they are up and running. Although it would reduce the current upward pressure on taxes, we cannot indefinitely postpone the replacement of capital properties or it will create an even more profound impact on tax rates in the future. All municipalities across Canada are facing the daunting reality that their infrastructure is aging and the need for continuous and sizable capital spending will be required. The overriding concern for the two future projects is the current level of operational costs for the entire City budget. It is acknowledged that City residents enjoy the benefits of many services and their property taxes are correspondingly high as a result. The City is in the process of reviewing all operational departments in an attempt to optimize operations and reduce the impact of increasing costs. To the extent that cost reductions cannot be realized through the review process, Council will be faced with some difficult decisions. They will involve changing the scope and or timing of the two projects in the planning stages versus deciding on a reduction on the level of service in other areas of the budget. Failure to do that will result in tax increases over and above the level of inflation. Submitted by Greg Wood Councillor, City of Camrose

Odessa Sherbaniuk recalls experience in Guatemala By Dan Jensen

Odessa Sherbaniuk spoke on her experiences as an intern with Sahakarini Inter-World Education and Development Association at the organization's Loaves and Fishes Dinner Nov. 3. Sherbaniuk lived and worked in the Chimaltenango area of Guatemala from January to June of this year. Her primary goal, as a recent graduate from the University of Alberta Augustana Campus Global and Development Studies Program, was to connect with communities to create awareness of the projects that Sahakarini is supporting. "She was our eyes and ears on the ground, talking with people about our projects and seeing how they work," said Sahakarini executive director Tif McNaughton. "She was able to learn from the Guatemalans about their lives, how our work has been changing things, and what more needs to be done." Sherbaniuk said it took a while to get the people of Guatemala to the point where they were comfortable making suggestions on how Sahakarini could help them improve their communities. "All they wanted to say at the beginning was how grateful they were and how happy they were that everything was going well. We wanted to get beyond that and hear in what other ways we could be helpful. We wanted to hear about their challenges because we knew that not everything was going to be 100 per cent all the time." In her first meeting with a microcredit group, Sherbaniuk was asked to provide regular information sessions on themes ranging from nutrition to family violence to women's health. "I was not necessarily comfortable agreeing to the role of informational session provider," said Sherbaniuk. "Still, it seemed to be something the people of Guatemala were passionate about and they were excited to share their ideas with me. I decided to agree to the informational sessions if the women would agree to be my teachers as well. I tried to make it as clear as possible that I am not an expert nor do I want to tell them how to live their lives. I repeatedly

stated that my primary reason for living in the community was to learn from them and that I would research the topics they had suggested and present my findings if they would agree to teach me something from their community as well." Asked one day to share something culturally significant to herself, Sherbaniuk decided to prepare a dish of perogies. "The perogy making process had to be modified a bit to fit

the circumstances," said Sherbaniuk. "The potatoes were boiled over the fire and mashed with a device that is used to make salsas. Instead of a rolling pin I used a drinking glass to roll out the dough. In the end the results were delicious and the meal provided a chance to share stories from my family, as well as information about the role of immigrants in Canada's history to the present day." Sherbaniuk noticed that the women and community members in Guatemala feel a real connection with the people in Camrose and Sahakarini. "They have had interns and people from Canada coming over on a regular basis. I was the first one from Sahakarini. They feel they have a connection with the people here and they feel the support beyond just the financial support. They know there are other people in the world who know about their struggles." Improving quality of life

Sahakarini has helped to create better quality of life for

Guatemalans by paying 80 per cent of the cost of more efficient stoves that raise the fire off the ground, enclose it, and then pipe smoke out of the house. The stoves are inexpensive, easy to assemble, and easy to maintain and repair. "The second family I lived with didn't have one of the stoves so the woman was cooking over open fire," said Sherbaniuk. "You could just see how the walls of the home were blackened. If you are standing over a fire for hours at a time breathing that in you are obviously going to have problems with your health." In the homes that did have the stoves the women commented on how they were able to cook faster with less wood. "The fact that they didn't have to go out and collect wood freed up a lot of their time," said Sherbaniuk. Sahakarini is also providing loans to 52 rural women to help them with small businesses that will allow them to earn better incomes. Some of the loan recipients grow and sell vegetables, while others raise chickens, sell eggs and milk, and make and sell aloe shampoo. The money they earn helps them afford the cost of sending their children to school. "One woman told us our children will change the world," said McNaughton. "The resilience of these women who have suffered unspeakably during the civil war and are continuing to experience uncertainty even today is remarkable and inspiring." Two other projects supported by Sahakarini are the provision of home-based water filters in the Chimaltenango area of Guatemala where water-borne illnesses are common, and violence against women education programs. "A lot of women in Guatemala end up going back to their homes after experiencing abuse because there is not the infrastructure that there is here to protect people, but at least they go back knowing the law that protects them from violence and being able to assert their rights," said McNaughton. "The program has seen pretty good success so far in that eight women

have left prostitution and are now operating home-based businesses." Sherbaniuk recalls one conversation she had on a bus with a Guatemalan woman who was able to work up the courage to leave an abusive relationship, only to return to it. "Currently her estranged husband spends most of his time outside of the village, leaving her in peace. However she told me that she is thinking of leaving again because she knows she should not have to deal with the emotional and mental stress that results from sharing her home with an abuser. The woman's story is not unique within the community, a fact she made very clear to me. What makes her unique is her determination to create change. She hopes to be a role model for other women in similar situations, yet she is limited by what she can do on a fruit seller's salary. She is also limited by a reality wherein there are limited supports in place for women fleeing domestic violence. Guatemala has only two women's shelters, one in the capital and one in Quetaltenango. It would be asking quite a lot of this woman, who has already sacrificed plenty in her struggle, to move away from her community, family, friends and any sort of natural supports." Dedicated partner

Sahakarini's partner in Guatemala is the Kaqchikel Presbytery, an indigenous church organization committed to helping those with whom it works reach better levels of organization, sustainable human development, and consciousness and participation in society. The total cost of supporting all the projects this past year was $44,000, of which $18,000 came from the Alberta government. Sahakarini is not sure how much longer it will continue to support the projects in Guatemala. "We always aim for self sufficiency in our projects, an aspect of what we are doing in Guatemala, like the microcredit loan program are very self sufficient at this time, with everyone paying back their loans, but violence against women is still a big problem," said McNaughton.

Augustana campus welcomes extinct moth By Christopher Thrall and Dan Jensen

Urania sloanus, a gorgeous jewel-toned day-flying Jamaican moth last recorded alive in 1895 – has landed on Augustana campus. The prized insect, encased in a special box with UV coated glass that will prevent light damage, was welcomed to Augustana during a reception on the second floor of the Forum building Nov. 2. Terzin, an assistant professor of biology, discovered the mint-condition extinct Urania sloanus on an eBay auction. "It had been found by accident in one old collection," said the professor. Knowing he couldn't afford the reserve bid of nearly $6,000, he sent out a message to his colleagues at Augustana campus in hopes that they would enjoy the sight of the rare moth before it was snapped up by a large museum or private collector. "Urania sloanus was abundant in the 19th century but when they cleared Jamaica for agriculture the caterpillars the moth fed on disappeared and the moth became extinct," said Terzin. "It is now very expensive and precious to collectors. There are only several specimens preserved

Tom Terzin with the Jamaican moth he purchased on eBay.

in the most prestigious world collections." Terzin's tone of mixed regret and enthusiasm struck a charitable chord. In amounts of $50 to $100, a flood of donations came in. The first arrived within an hour of the email. There was $1,700 in pledges within another half-hour, and the remainder

was contributed in less than a day. The 300-strong Augustana faculty and staff contributed enough to meet – and exceed – the reserve bid. "I did not plan that we would actually purchase the moth and that people would give pledges," said Terzin, "but I was impressed with the response, considering

that Augustana only has about 300 staff." Along with the donations came comments of support from Augustana's interdisciplinary community. "Very beautiful specimen!" wrote chemistry professor James Kariuki, along with his pledge. "I couldn't stop thinking of all the chemical reactions producing such brilliant colours." "It struck me that we might need a soundtrack for this magical moth fund-raising," wrote music professor Alex Carpenter as he submitted a link to Johann Strauss's Nachtfalter Waltz ("Moth Waltz"). "I'm not crazy about insects," wrote mathematics professor Bill Hackborn along with his pledge, "but your moth is really beautiful – even mathematically so – and the wildfire you started here on campus is irresistible." Flying under the online-auction radar, the moth had only one bidder. Visual arts professor Keith Harder paraphrased the University of Alberta, saying he is always on the side of whatsoever things are beautiful. "That little critter may well become emblematic about the kind of things we – as Augus-

tana – are prepared to rally around." Augustana dean Allen Berger said having the moth on campus is representative of how everyone on campus pulls together to make something happen. "There is a lot of rhetoric about the nature of community on university campuses, especially on small campuses like Augustana. We proved the rhetoric, in this instance, is reality." Berger said the moth and the glory belongs to the entire community. Terzin said it is hard to estimate the value of the moth since there is no market for it. "If I was a millionaire I would be willing to spend $25,000 for the specimen." Terzin will be making the moth the focal point of any future exhibitions of a personal insect collection that now totals more than 50,000 specimens. "Tom has an amazing insect collection that he shares with the entire Augustana community and the larger Camrose community as well," said dean Berger. "He does a lot of educational programs for school children, and I imagine the next time he mounts the exhibit this will be an important part of it."

Score! returns to Augustana for third year By Christopher Thrall

One’s trash is another’s treasure. The old saying is proven yet again as Score! returned to Augustana for a third year on November 1. The student-built “free-cycling extravaganza” has brought community members from campus and the surrounding area into re-using excess stuff and discussion with each other. One good thing about holding it a third time, according to co-founder Carmelle Mohr, is that they have to explain the idea a lot less. “People actually know what we’re talking about,” the 4 ½-year Global and Development Studies major declares happily. “You can see your children growing up.” The core of Score! remains the same: donated items were collected and then displayed in a free store in the Augustana Forum. On Wednesday, October 31, volunteers collected donations from campus and the rest of the community. On Thursday afternoon, the Score! store opened for business to what seemed like the entire population of Augustana campus. The silent auction of the best items was thronged with browsers while students compared shirts, end tables or toys they found in the free store. Several sessions taught visitors how to up-cycle their found items, work driftwood or tune up their bicycles. Local producers offered vegetables, eggs and bread for sale. Donations were collected to support the work of Sahakarini, and FaithLife Financial matched everything donated, up to $500. “In our first year, we had no idea what was going on,” says Carmelle. “The next year, people started talking about it and asking about it.” In its second year, Score! added a fashion show of found items, included a local DJ playing music and won the new

Drama students Ari Evans and Maddy Goodman juggled boxes of macaroni and cheese at the Score event.

Dean’s support. This year, the organizers opened new opportunities to learn about the philosophy behind Score! – and a new partner with a compatible philosophy. Sahakarini was founded in Camrose in 1979 to form part-

nerships for community-level development initiatives around the world. This year, Sahakarini partnered with Score! to help raise funds (and friends) for current projects in Kenya, India, Guatemala and Uganda. “Score! fits our approach so well,”

explains Tif McNaughton, director of Sahakarini and an Augustana alumna, who has been part of Score! since the beginning. “It’s full community participation in a spirit of reciprocity. Score! does it locally, while we try to throw it around the world.” “It’s about give and take,” agrees Carmelle, “as you can. The ripple effect goes so much deeper. Be willing to share – and even sacrifice something – for your neighbour.” The event also tries to address a deeper issue. “We hope to help eradicate the shame of living in poverty,” says Carmelle. “As a student, it’s difficult to be OK with living in poverty. More students are using the Reciprocity Shelf or soup supper. Even in a loving community like Camrose, there is a shame to living below that line. There are

opposite ends of the spectrum, but we are trying to bring things back to a common ground. Living in that shame is permanently damaging.” Score! shows pride in the Camrose community, from people who donate and the farmers who offer their wares to the students and residents who shop at Score! – plus the charitable associations and the dignity of the people they support. But it comes back to caring. “Sometimes I wonder – as students – how caring are we, really?” asks Carmelle. “We get absorbed in our textbooks and exams, rather than investing in what we’re learning and giving back to the community that gives us so much. I like that Score involves students – and community members – from all walks of life.”

Tim Williams to headline Bluesdays starting at Bailey Theatre Nov. 13 Submitted




Tim Williams is a blues based singer, songwriter and multi instrumentalist. He is a 40-year veteran of the roots music scene in North America, roots which stretch back to the coffee-house scene of his native California in the mid '60s. Tim will be playing at the Bailey Theatre Bluesday series tonight (Nov. 13) beginning at 8 p.m. Settling in Canada in 1970, Tim is a studio musician, producer, and a performer in constant demand. He has played folk, blues and jazz festivals and concert halls and clubs from Halifax to Vancouver Island and to the Yukon. Inspired by the hillbilly and western swing music he heard as a child, Tim absorbed late '50s rhythm and blues, and rock and roll, Hawaiian and Mexican music, early '60s

folk, and bluegrass “like a sponge” before discovering a passion for traditional blues styles which was fueled by seeing many first generation blues musicians live during the blues boom” of the mid and late '60s. Imagine, if you can, a front porch where Robert Johnson, Hank Williams, Hula Hattie, Flaco Jimenez and Bob Marley meet often and discover just how much they have in common. Tim’s music would fit right in. Tim will be bringing his blues to Camrose and the doors open at 7 p.m. Hosted by Curtis Bessette, these events feature different blues based performers each night. Audiences have a chance to learn about blues history and have come to know that the blues is about feeling good above all

else. From the early rock n' roll classics, to heavy metal, the blues influence prevails throughout the decades. You might find out you love the blues, but just don't realize it yet. There is also a reading from a book called The Gutbucket Quest each Bluesday. Authors and blues fans Piers Anthony and Ron Leming wrote the book, The Gutbucket Quest. It is about a guitar player in Texas who gets struck by lightening while practicing in a field. He lands back to Earth in a similar yet different land, where the state is now called Tejas and there is only one kind of music: Blues. Be sure to check all the Tuesday Bluesday events to catch up on the story. More information can be found at

Winter calls for adapted driving Winter is tough on our vehicles and not so easy on us, the drivers, either! Whether you like it or not, you have to adapt your driving style during winter conditions. After all, our big, bulky winter coats make us less agile when behind the wheel! There’s no denying that driving during the winter isn’t always a ton of fun, with all those cold, frozen, slippery roads out there. Even if your vehicle is equipped with the best winter tires available, traction will never be as good as during the summer. The first and most important advice we can give you is to slow down. Unfortunately, too many drivers place far too much confidence in their vehicle’s abilities and in their own driving skills. Those driving around in four-wheel or all-wheel drive vehicles are particularly guilty of doing this. It doesn’t matter what type of vehicle you drive, its response time will be slower than during the warmer months of the year. In addition to snowy, icy roads, you have to factor in dirtier windows, the effects of the sun’s glare bouncing off the roads and onto your windshield and even excessive heat inside your vehicle. All these

factors can and do slow you down, sometimes more than you’d think. And who’s to say all the other drivers on the road are on the ball? They’re dealing with the same inconveniences of winter as you are. It’s not worth taking chances just to get to your destination a few minutes earlier. Slow down, be alert and put every bit of luck you have on your side. And keep that cell phone turned off! Winter driving requires your full attention. Heavy Snow

Driving in snow is different than driving on ice, but there are some similarities. Snow can be melting and freezing on roads simultaneously, depending on whether salt and sand have been applied by road service personnel. Therefore skidding from hydroplaning and ice may occur. Another hazard from snow is reduced visibility. Driving under blizzard conditions is very dangerous. Wind and snow can cause white-out situations, essentially wiping out any visibility. In these instances, a driver should pull over to a safe area and wait out the storm. Some people experience trouble with snow accumulation on roads that have not been plowed.

The new A5… The hump is back You may notice a family resemblance, but let’s get one thing straight, this ain’t your Grandpa’s Auto-5. In fact, the iconic humpback-shaped receiver is the only thing this new Browning autoloader shares with its legendary namesake. The all new Browning A5 is built to be the most reliable, fastest cycling, best performing and softest shooting recoiloperated (yes, recoil-operated) autoloader on the planet. And we are so confident in the A5, we are standing behind it with a 100,000 round or five year guarantee that this shotgun will work, come hell or high water. Standing firmly behind this claim is the ultra-reliable, honed to perfection Kinematic Drive System. Other innovations, like the new Invector-DS choke tube system and Inflex II recoil pad are sure to place the A5 right at the top of the industry. With the recoil-operated A5 and our gas-operated Maxus autoloaders, we are poised to dominate every aspect of the autoloading shotgun market. These two guns compliment one another in the same way lightning goes with thunder, and the way Browning goes with number one.

:LQWHU2Q7KH5RDG Add years to your vehicle's life Getting more for your money is a popular trend among consumers. As economic uncertainty reigns, smart consumers are looking for the best values in an effort to get the most out of each and every dollar they spend. One of the best ways to stretch a dollar is to take better care of your vehicle. Buying a home and financing a college education are perhaps the only times many consumers will spend more money than they do when purchasing a vehicle. But unlike a home or an education, few people take their vehicles seriously, all too often avoiding vehicle maintenance that can greatly increase a car or truck's life expectancy. Drivers who want to keep their cars going strong for years to come can do so in a handful of ways. * Prevent, prevent, prevent. Preventive maintenance might seem like a boring way to spend a weekend morning or afternoon, but the efforts will be well worth it. Oil changes and filter replacements are quick and easy jobs but pay major dividends over the long haul. Drivers who aren't comfortable performing these tasks themselves need not worry about costly trips to the mechanic. Routine jobs like an oil change or air filter replacement are relatively inexpensive, and today's vehicles can go much

longer between oil changes and filter replacements. Each vehicle manufacturer is different, so drivers should consult their owner's manual and adhere to the recommended maintenance schedule. * Stay balanced. Balanced tires are tires that will last longer. But an out of balance tire will not only shorten the life of tires, it can also do damage to the rest of the vehicle while simultaneously making riding in the car much less comfortable. When a tire is properly balanced, its mass is uniformly distributed around the axle, making for a smooth, vibrationfree ride. However, an out of balance tire shortens the life expectancy of suspension components, including bearings and shocks. Repairs that result from an unbalanced tire can prove costly. Should a vibration occur as the vehicle accelerates (typically, this vibration will be noticeable when the car reaches speeds of 90 km/h), chances are the tires are not properly balanced. * Look good, feel good. The credo of "look good, feel good" isn't only applicable to humans. In fact, a car that looks good likely feels good as well.Washing and waxing a car regularly helps avoid rust under the carriage and in the wheel wells. The longer a car goes between washes, the more likely it is to rust, and

the paint is likely to corrode as well. There is no quick fix to either of these problems, but preventive maintenance, like routinely washing and waxing the vehicle, can keep these potentially menacing issues from ever rearing their rusty heads. Preventing rust and corrosion is also a good way to ensure a car's resale value does not diminish over time. * Get out and drive. Cars that spend most of their life in stop-and-go traffic likely won't last as long as those that routinely get out and go. That's because city driving with lots of stopping and going is very taxing on an engine. On a highway, air flow to the radiator, oil flow to the engine and everything that makes a car run is much more consistent, reducing the stress on the engine as a result. Constantly accelerating and decelerating is hard on an engine, while the consistent speeds of highway driving offer a welcome respite to the engine. City dwellers should get out and drive their car on a highway at least once a month for no less than 30 minutes. This is also a good way to get rid of potentially harmful condensation that can negatively impact engine performance. When looking to get more for your money, one of the best ways to do so is to take better care of the car sitting in your driveway.

No matter where you live in Canada, you are bound to experience winter conditions. Consequently, if you own a car or a light truck, you should be thinking about purchasing winter tires. Perhaps you believe that winter tires are only for residents of snowy areas and indeed, if you do live and drive in an area where it seldom snows, maybe that line of thinking would make sense. But would it really? One thing’s for sure, winter is part of our country and that means that it will be cold just about everywhere. You may be surprised to learn that winter tires are not only designed for snow, and that’s why they’re called “winter tires”: because they are designed for the cold. Although it may not snow, the pavement will still get very cold. Allseason tires may look good for the job, however, they lack that softer compound rubber that’s able to cope with cold pavement. Worse yet, all-season tires are pretty much useless on icy patches! Winter tires are a great asset during the cold season. If you haven’t purchased yours yet, consult a professional tire dealer who will guide you in the proper type of tire to put on your vehicle, according to your driving and travel habits. This is a wise and useful investment in your safety and that of your passengers.

tures can harden rubber parts and cause them to crack under pressure. There are also certain types of brakes that let water or snow penetrate the mechanism, particularly if the small rubber plug is missing (in the case of drum brakes), causing


the mechanism to freeze. You might be surprised by how common it is for some vehicles to have one or more brakes frozen solid! What’s more, rust can also take its toll and cause certain parts to break, even in the middle of winter. This is a particularly common problem

Now is the time to clean the garage

The garage is one area of the house that gets so crammed with objects of every kind, that it quickly becomes overloaded when you need it the most. So, wouldn’t it be a good idea to clean it up before the winter? A tidy garage can become an important “emergency room” when your vehicle fails, especially in winter. It’s the area of choice when a tire goes flat and you need a warm place to change it. It can be a good place to prepare your next trip. But most of all, it is the place where you park your car overnight to let it thaw and to provide the luxury of a warm car the next morning. A clean garage is also another great place to wash your car in winter. Car washes are fine but no one can fine detail a car the way you can. And washing your car regularly will prevent rust problems later. Also, remember that the doors on a freshly washed car can freeze if it’s left outside over a cold night. In the garage, the car will have time to dry. If you like to do your own maintenance, you will find that a warm garage is very useful in winter. Yep! It’s about time you get to it and clean up that garage of yours! T:11.43”

Have you looked at your owner's manual lately?

When you bought your car or truck, did you notice that little book carefully wrapped in a clear plastic in the glove box? Did you pick it up and read some of its important notices? Chances are you have never even opened it, even though you should. That little book contains a wealth of information, such as how to maintain your vehicle, what to do if you have any kind of problem, and what type of oil to use during winter. The manual will also tell you how to operate that funny little button you didn’t even know existed. Don’t wait for an emergency like a flat tire to read the information on how to use the jack, where to find the spare tire, and how to store all the tools once the task is done. Your owner’s manual also provides information on emergency phone numbers. The book contains all the information pertaining to your tires, the load your vehicle can handle, the emission control system, and the maintenance schedules. If you purchased a used vehicle, the owner’s manual could be missing. If this is the case, it is a good idea to visit the dealership (the same make, of course) and ask them to order the manual that corresponds to your vehicle. It is important to specify that you want the Owner’s Manual and not the Shop Manual. The latter can also be useful, but only if you intend to repair or rebuild the vehicle. Besides, a Shop Manual is a lot more expensive.

How to drive in dangerous conditions

Individuals who live in areas of the country where the temperature and weather changes throughout the seasons have to adapt their driving to meet the road conditions. Weather-related accidents are some of the most prevalent but can be largely prevented if the proper driving techniques are followed. Some of the more dangerous driving conditions include heavy rain that causes hydroplaning, driving on ice and driving in heavy snow. Hydroplaning

Hydroplaning occurs when water on the roadway accumulates in front of a vehicle's tires faster than the weight of the vehicle can push it out of the way. The water pressure can push the vehicle up on a thin layer of water, essentially breaking the tires' contact with the road. In a matter of seconds, a driver can lose control and end up swerving out of his or her lane. It is important to follow a few guidelines to prevent hydroplaning. First, keep tires well maintained. Worn-out tread can contribute to hydroplaning, as can inadequately inflated tires. Certain tread patterns are more capable of diverting water away from the tires. Ask a professional about which tire tread to choose. Next, realize that the higher the speed, the higher the propensity to hydroplane. At lower speeds, it is generally rare to hydroplane, unless the water puddles driven through are exceptionally deep. Reduce speeds when it is raining. Also, lighter vehicles are more prone to hydroplaning. Again, if driving a compact or lightweight vehicle, slow down when water is on the road. Should hydroplaning occur, let off the gas and do not apply the brake or turn the wheels. Once the car slows down and retains traction once more, steer and brake accordingly. Ice

Ice is a problem that plagues drivers when the temperature drops. While some ice can be detected on the roadway, thin sheets of ice blend in with the asphalt and are known as "black ice." Black ice can be undetectable until a car begins to skid. Many people have trouble driving on icy roads. In fact, winter conditions often lead to accidents. It is important to make some modifications to a vehicle if driving on ice will be commonplace this season. At the least, proper tire inflation is important to maintain traction. Tires should also be checked for tread, as bald tires will do little to grip the road. Individuals who want even more protection should consider switching to snow tires for the winter. These tires are made from a softer rubber so they can better grip the road. They may also feature a different tire tread for even more traction. Snow chains can be used to offer greater grip. However, speeds will have to be greatly reduced when chains are in place. Reducing speed is helpful when driving in an inclement condition.

Hockey Augustana earns three points against NAIT By Murray Green

The Augustana Vikings grabbed three points for the second straight week as they edged the first place NAIT Ooks 2-1 in overtime at the EnCana Arena on Nov. 1 and followed with a tie two nights later. The Vikings remain fourth in the Alberta College Athletic Conference standings. "Earning three out of four points is huge, just because of who we were playing. Any time we can make up ground on SAIT and NAIT is always good. It puts us in a good position for playoffs," said defenceman Harrison Tribble, even though NAIT received two points as well. "The way we look at it, we won both of those weekends. We have played three of the four best teams in the league already. We put ourselves in a position to roll off five or six wins in a row now." Augustana plays Briercrest, Keyano and Concordia, while SAIT and NAIT meet each other for the first time this season. "You look around the league and every team is winning against teams they are supposed to beat. We have to focus on winning our games first and make sure teams below us are not stealing points away from us," added Harrison. NAIT's Jordan Draper picked the wrong time and team to take a tripping penalty against. Augustana's power play clicked with just over three minutes left when Harrison scored the equalizer. That set the table for Scott Aucoin. "It's always a good thing to add offence. I scored my first two goals of the season and they came at some pretty important times for us. That's a big confidence boost for me. I was talking about trying to get the monkey off my back. Hopefully, the flood gates will open now and I can keep that roll going."

To say veteran Vikings sniper Scott was mired in a slump would be an understatement. The proven scorer needed seven games this season to notch his first tally. However, he waited for the perfect time to score an important goal. Scott grabbed a feed from Dan Hope and garnered the winner just over a minute into the overtime frame. NAIT scored in the opening period, but failed to hang onto the 1-0 lead late in the contest. Vikings goalie Joel Danyluk was sharp in stopping 26 of 27 shots directed his way. The Ooks goalie Chris Moore turned away 29 of the 31 he faced. Augustana let the Ooks take 50 of the 72 minutes in penalties and the move eventually paid off when the Vikings scored with the man advantage. In the rematch in Edmonton, the Ooks scored two third period goals to tie the game and force overtime. The extra frame failed to solve the deadlock. Harrison and Kenny Bradley gave the Vikings the lead before NAIT mounted a comeback. All four tallies were scored with the man advantage. "Our power play has been better lately. I won't dress it up. I'm not the best offensive player and I'm more of a stay at home defenceman, but it is good to contribute," said Harrison. "It took us a while to get going because we lost our quarterback on the power play, Torrie Dyck, but it feels we are on track. Other teams know we have a good power play, so they don't take as many penalties against us. We are so evenly matched against SAIT and NAIT that we need the power play to come through for us. Special teams play a huge role in who wins those games."

Over the last four years, Augustana has had the best power play units in the league. "We seem to know what works and clicks for us out there. We have two good units and if the first one isn't clicking, the second one will," explained Harrison. "We tend to come at other teams in waves because both units are so good. Having Matt Foster back is huge and he gives us even more depth. You just can't replace his speed." Now the focus is for the Vikings to take fewer penalties. "We want to make sure the other team is taking more penalties

than us," Harrison said. "Taking penalties at inopportune times has cost us. We have addressed discipline issues as a team and it is something we really need to focus on. We can't give any teams an advantage or opportunities to hang around in games longer than they should." Goaltending has also made a difference. Danyluk was sharp in the Augustana net again for the Vikings. He stopped 38 of 40 shots. Members of the Vikings are growing moustaches for Movember to raise funds for prostrate

cancer. "People can check on line at and we have a donation bin at the entrance of our home games," said Harrison as he encourages people to support the worthy cause. After a two-game away series with Briercrest on Nov. 16 and 17, the Vikings return home for a game against the Concordia Thunder on Nov. 23. The Vikings want fans to support Movember with a donation at this game. Action starts at 7:30 p.m. in the EnCana Arena.

The CKS 2 Cougars had to knock off the CKS 1 team in the semifinals to determine which squad would represent the school in the finals of its own tournament. "Our team played well the entire weekend and I was very proud of

our girls," said coach Sue Nelson, of the CKS 2 team. "They played hard against Daysland and the other Charlie Killam team to get to the finals. Hay Lakes is a very good team and they beat OLMP in their semifinals to reach the final."

CKS 2 went undefeated in its first two matches by defeating OLMP and Hay Lakes. It could have been a possible three-way tie in the pool, but it was avoided when CKS 2 beat Daysland in a game. The CKS 1 girls lost to OLMP, but beat New Norway and Tofield to reach the semifinals. On the boys' side, the New Norway Spartans emerged victorious over the Bawlf Wildcats. New Norway defeated OLMP and Bawlf won over

the CKS team 2 in the semifinals to advance. The Spartans went undefeated in matches at the tournament. New Norway defeated CKS 2, Hay Lakes and CKS 3 to reach the semifinals. Bawlf beat Tofield, OLMP and CKS 1 in the round robin series. After league play wrapped up last week, the first place CKS 2 girls were awarded the divisional tournament in Camrose on Nov. 15. The New Norway boys will be hosting the other divisional tourney on the same date.

CRE hopes to build on last year's success with Festival of Trees By Dan Jensen

The Camrose Regional Exhibition will be attempting to build on last year's success with the annual Festival of Trees next month. "We're pretty much going with the same format," explained CRE major events and international agricultural marketing manager Marilyn Lee. The only real change will be the replacement of the Unwrap the Magic gala reception with a Central Agencies sponsored Unwrap the Magic gala dinner and auction Nov. 22. Tickets for the dinner may be purchased "in advance only" until Nov. 19. "We sat down and talked about it and decided that, even though the reception was a good idea, that we would try the dinner again and see where that takes us," said Lee. Pre-festival activities will get underway at the CRE Nov. 21 with the ever popular Camrose Chrysler Teddy Bear Disco.

"It promises to be a fun night," said Lee. "The kids who attend must be 12 years of age or younger and be accompanied by their parents." Hauser Home Hardware Building Centre will be the title sponsor of the Festival of Trees Nov. 23, while Nu Edge Construction will be the sponsor on the Saturday and Evraz Camrose Works the sponsor for Sunday. The children's world was redesigned last year to allow for improved utilization of space, and the Castle Shoppe, was expanded to let more shoppers look for gifts within their budget and price range. A Thistle Hill Petting Zoo will once again let children get up close to their favourite animals. The title sponsor for the Festival of Trees entertainment stage will be Electro Tel. "We're going to be highlighting a lot of our local entertainment throughout the festival," said Lee. A separate tree display area

Spirits of Christmas Craft Sale and Trade Show The Festival of Trees will once again be held in conjunction with the Camrose Arts Society's Spirits of Christmas Craft Sale and Trade Show. "The craft sale vendors will be setting up in the main arena, while the trade show exhibitors will be in the Kinsmen Hall," said Lee. Those attending will have the opportunity to choose from many great gift ideas. "There's going to be something for everyone," said Lee.

will be set up at the festival for sponsors who make donations of $500 or more. "We're going to be giving sponsors like the City and County of Camrose an opportunity to take a tree from our hold, decorate it and put it on display in the sponsors' area," said Lee. "Once the festival is over the sponsor will have the opportunity to take the tree to his or her business or home and show it off for the remainder of the Christmas season."

Schools, human service agencies, churches, clubs and organizations will have the opportunity to display a Special Tree or submit an entry in the gingerbread house competition. Special Tree (formerly Competition Tree) and gingerbread house entry forms may be found on the Camrose Regional Exhibition website. One of the criteria for the Special Trees is that all decorations be handmade. The Festival of Trees will

be offering $1 off the price of admission for a donation to the Camrose Food Bank. Proceeds from ticket sales and the silent and live auction items at Unwrap the Magic will be donated to the Merry Christmas Cheer Fund, Battle River Community Foundation and the Camrose Children's Choir. Festival of Trees organizers will be seeking the support of volunteers as the festival dates draw closer. "There will be plenty of opportunities to help, from assisting with the decorations and behind the scenes preparations to working during the Festival itself," said Lee. The Camrose Festival of Trees has come a long way as a family-oriented event since it was first held in 1995. "It is not unusual for us to get 10,000 to 15,000 people through the doors, some from as far away as Saskatchewan," said Lee. "It is a huge draw and an important event for the community."

Augustana drama staging adaptation of Rushdie work Haroun and the Sea of Stories Augustana Theatre Centre Nov. 15 to 17 and Nov. 22 to 24. Preview show Nov. 14 Tickets at the door

By Dan Jensen

Anyone who has ever questioned the importance of stories in life or struggled with censorship and expression will want to be sure to take in the Augustana production of Salman Rushdie's Haroun and the Sea of Stories. Adapted into a play by Tim Supple and David Tushingham and first performed at the Royal National Theatre in London in 1998, Haroun and the Sea of Stories is a tale about a storyteller who loses his skill and a struggle against mysterious forces attempting to block the seas of inspiration from which all stories are derived. The main character is Haroun, who, after tragedy strikes his family, sets out to regain his father's ability to spin famous and colourful tales. The result is an exciting and dazzling adventure in which he acquires three fantastical companions: Iff, the water genie, Mr. Butt, a crazy bus driver who turns into a mechanical bird with telepathic abilities, and Mali, a floating gardener made of seaweed. "Haroun and the Sea of Stories" is a lively, wonderfully inventive comic tale with an updated

Augustana students rehearse a scene from Haroun and the Sea of Stories

Arabian Nights background," states Alison Lurie, winner of the 1985 Pulitzer Prize for fiction for Foreign Affairs. "It follows the classic folk tale in which the hero travels to strange lands to lift a spell on his native country or cure his father of a fatal ailment. In the course of the story he is aided by supernatural companions and confronts and defeats a wicked magician."

One of the play's important moments comes when Haroun meets the dictator Khattum Shud, who wishes not only to poison the Sea of Stories, but to silence stories completely. Shud's view is that the world is for controlling and that within every story there is a world that cannot be controlled. Some have referred to this as a commentary on authoritarian regimes, especially in the

Middle East, that silence their people through political, social and religious means. The production fits well with the theme of resiliency that Augstana has adopted for 2012-13. "It has a lot to do with the environment and the community, two of the things that Augustana stands for," explains Mariah St. Germaine, production coordinator and one of the 18 student and

community cast members. "It goes hand in hand with the presentation author Bill McKibben gave a few weeks ago about being resilient in the face of all kinds of things and raising awareness about global warming issues." Though it raises important issues, the production is a departure from the type of plays that have been performed at Augustana over the past few years. "Some of our past shows have been a bit more racy," said Germain. "This one is definitely appropriate for all ages." In keeping with the desire to be environmentally friendly, the cast has decided to produce all the sound effects and background music themselves without the use of electronic equipment. "We had Daryl DeWalt, who is a big member of the Camrose music community, help us," said St. Germaine. "He came in and taught us a bunch of different beats and how to play tamborines and different types of instruments." Levi Borjeko, a fourth year drama major, is playing the role of the protagonist, Heroun. The play will run for about two hours, and have an intermission. The cast has been in production since the start of the school year in September. "There are parts of it that have been pretty challenging, especially for those members of the cast who haven't worked in university productions before," said St. Germaine.

Caregivers share solutions with each other at church workshops By Alex Oliver

Understanding Support (US) is a group for anyone who has been or is the caregiver of a loved one who has a chronic illness. Two free workshops organized by US centered on caregiver burnout and resentment and guilt were held at Camrose United Church on May 1 and 15, 2012. Joan Willoughby, member of Camrose United Church, spearheaded US after Reverend Alan Richards of Camrose United Church gave three informal meetings in January and February, 2011, entitled “How May I

Walk With Thee.” These introductory workshops explored what it meant to live with and provide care for loved ones who live with long-term illnesses. “Being the primary caregiver for a loved one who needs longterm care or palliative care is a tough road to walk,” stated Rev. Richards. “You’re afraid to leave him or her; and you may not know where to turn for help. You may wonder where God is in all of this.” Joan Willoughby added, “That was when I knew we needed a caregiver group. I truly believe that my journey and all

caregivers’ journeys are much easier when we have the support of people who understand.” The US group provides a safe place to discuss feelings, share experiences, emotions, information, and to learn from resource people. Confidentiality is respected. The first workshop provided information on the identification and prevention of caregiver burnout. The eighteen attendees freely discussed the increased levels of stress, anxiety, anger, frustration, and even depression as they looked after a loved one. Dee White and Angela

Grant, continuing care counselors from Camrose Home Care of Alberta Health Services, conducted the two sessions. Dee and Angela commented, “Our message is that the caregiver is doing important and significant work. The caregiver deserves support and time for revitalization. They are the loved one’s most valuable asset and taking care of oneself means that the caregiver will be able to care more effectively for them.” The second interactive workshop centered on resentment and guilt. Caregivers may

feel trapped because they don’t have a life of their own anymore. Feelings of anger can build up because there seems to be no solution. Twenty people attended this workshop and a lively and heartfelt discussion focussed on methods to alleviate the resentment and guilt. Lorna Lien who attended both workshops summed it up by saying, “Talking about our personal life struggles as a caregiver with each other makes you realize you’re not alone. We support each other by listening and sharing.”

Lloyd Albert Anderson

Mabel Henrietta Johnson Mabel Henrietta Johnson passed away on November 8, 2012 at the age of 90. Mabel was born in Duhamel on February 17, 1922, the youngest daughter of Milton and Mary Jones. In 1944, Mabel married Oscar (Ted) Johnson and together they operated a mixed farm west of New Norway for many years. Mabel loved growing flowers and tending a huge vegetable garden. She was known for her green thumb. She especially enjoyed raising sheep on the farm and became a surrogate mom to many an orphaned lamb. Bird watching and music were other interests Mabel enjoyed. Family was very important to Mabel, and spending time with them gave her great joy – especially her grandchildren. Mabel and her husband Ted moved off the farm to Camrose in 1986. In later years, Mabel succumbed to Alzheimer’s. She spent over 10 years under the care of The Bethany Group. The family would like to give a special thank you to all the wonderful caregivers who gave her exceptional care and compassion during her time with them. Left to cherish her memory are her children Allen (Sylvia) Johnson of Penhold and Fern (Daryl) Reinke of Bawlf; grandchildren Jeffery Johnson of Red Deer, Tammy Reinke (Jeff McKort) of Camrose, Dr. Stacey Reinke (Ryan Plett) of Edmonton, Dr. Melissa Reinke (Mike Liley) of Calgary and Christine Reinke (Rob Bates) of Calgary; and great-grandchild Brendan McKort. Mabel was predeceased by her husband Oscar “Ted” Johnson and sister Emma Snell. Funeral Services will be held at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, November 17, 2012 from Burgar Memorial Chapel with Rev. Murray Cowan officiating. Interment will take place in Nashville Cemetery at Gwynne, Alberta. If family and friends so desire, memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to the Alzheimer’s Society or to the charity of one’s choice. To send condolences, please visit

Lloyd Albert Anderson, 73, died peacefully November 5, 2012 at Brookhaven Care Facility in West Kelowna, BC. Lloyd was born on February 2, 1939 in Camrose, Alberta to James and Helen Anderson. Lloyd graduated from high school in Bawlf, and went on to complete a Mechanical Engineering degree at the University of Alberta. He married Lona Lindroth in 1962, and pursued a career in engineering in the Okanagan Valley where they raised two sons, Kenneth and Douglas. While in Summerland, Lloyd was very active in the Rotary Club, local community groups and a member of the school board. In 1985, Lloyd completed his Master’s Degree in Urban Land Development at the University of British Columbia and went on to work on the Expo 86 project in Vancouver. His love of travel led him into a career building expo pavilions in the US, Spain and his favorite, Australia, where he spent much of the latter part of his life. Lloyd was an avid sailor, traveler, runner and pilot who enjoyed life to the fullest. He is survived by his son Kenneth and sister Gail Baker. He is predeceased by his son Doug and his brothers Donald and William.

Morris Torhjelm who passed away on November 14, 2011 We thought of you with love today, But that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday, And days before that, too. We think of you in silence, We often speak your name. Now all we have is memories, And your picture in a frame. Your memory is our keepsake, With which we’ll never part. God has you in His keeping, We have you in our hearts. – Olive and family

Our lives go on without you But nothing is the same, We have to hide our heartaches When someone speaks your name. Sad are the hearts that love you Silent the tears that fall, Living our lives without you Is the hardest part of all.

Helpful Tips for Writing Classified Ads Which Get Results! Be Thorough Sure you want your ad to stand out from the rest, but don’t skimp on the sort of information that sells. The item’s condition, size, age, brand name, and color are some of the basics readers want to know. Without them, your ad may be overlooked.

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

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

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

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

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

Trojans in finals at home By Murray Green

The Camrose Composite High School senior girls' volleyball team earned silver medals at home when it faced a tough Barr-head squad in the finals. "The team is beginning to play with more confidence. We have had pretty good success at tournaments all year," explained coach Bryan Laskosky. "The girls are starting to understand that if they bring their “A” game, they can play with anyone in the province." CCHS finished the round robin undefeated. The Trojans defeated New Norway, Wetaskiwin, Westlock, Peace Wapiti Academy from Grande Prairie and St. Paul. In the quarter-finals, Camrose faced Spruce Grove and beat them two straight. Grande Prairie received a rematch against CCHS in the semifinals, but the home team won in a very competitive two-game match. That set up a final between the best two clubs. In a fairly even back and forth match, Barrhead came out on top 25-21 and 26-24. "I was very pleased with the play of the team all weekend long. It would seem the things we have been working on in practice are starting to pay off," said coach Bryan. "Our blocking and defense has shown marked improvement and our offense is becoming a bit more creative and varied. These are all good signs as we prepare for zones and hosting provincials."

Ty Clay scored twice and Connor Mailey added a single marker to lead the Camrose Kodiaks over the Calgary Canucks 3-1 on Nov. 3. Ty is clicking with the return of his linemates. "I've been in and out of the lineup over the last two months," said Scott Ferguson, who plays on a line with Ty and Scott Feser. "It's nice to finally be back full time now." Scott was pencilled in for the first game of the season. "In the morning of the home opening game, I fell into the boards hard and hurt my ankle and it has taken a while to get fully healthy again. It is hard to be in and out of the line-up because you learn new systems, but sit out and then you lose your cardio. Then you struggle to keep up and get back into game shape. You have to work twice as hard to get back to where everyone else is at." The forward is hoping the worst is behind him. "Every day at practice I feel better. It is a lot different riding the bike than it is playing every day. I've played with Ty and Scott Feser before, so we have some good chemistry. We were dominant in the offensive zone last game. That makes it easier to get back into it when your whole line is playing well," said Scott. Camrose has won four of its last five games to move back into second place in the Alberta Junior Hockey League southern division. The victory also put the Kodiaks back on even terms with 11 wins in 22 games this season. The Kodiaks garnered a goal in each period as they outplayed Calgary. The Canucks' lone bright spot was a power play marker in the third frame. "When you are winning, everyone is a lot happier and things tend to go better. The team is definitely bonding better because we are winning," explained Scott. "Everyone is having a good time now and the mood in the dressing room has changed. It is a better atmosphere now." Camrose out-shot the Canucks 36-19 with Calgary goalie Andrew Guglielmin stealing the show and the game star. Kodiaks' goalie Devin McDonald made 18 of 19 saves. "When you sit out, you feel helpless. You want to contribute to earn wins and it is nice to be back full time," added Scott. "I love it here. It was a hard step from midget, but everyone has been so helpful to make it easier." Camrose came out firing on all cylinders and built up a 3-0 lead after 20 minutes against the Olds Grizzlys on Nov. 2. The Kodiaks poured it on in the third with three more goals to win 7-3. Luc Vandale led the offence with two goals. Single tallies came from Kirsten Odendaal, Scott Feser, Tanner MacMaster, Brett Njaa and Nelson Gadoury. Olds out-shot the Kodiaks 31-27 with Camrose using two goalies. Matt Gibney made 15 of 18 saves and Devin McDonald turned away all 13 shots directed at him.

Augustana opened the season with two wins to now even its record at 2-2. Keri Acorn led the Vikings with nine kills, three digs and two blocks. Alana Fahlman chipped in with three kills, three aces, four digs and a block. Jill Metrunec collected three blocks and Catherine Laskosky added seven digs in support. In the rematch, the Vikings didn't put up much of a fight in dropping three straight games 25-12, 25-15 and 25-16. Fahlman led the team with five kills, four digs and two blocks. Kristy Wade also had a good match with five kills, an ace and four blocks. Kiera Lotosky and Laskosky added five digs each. The men's team won both of its matches, after losing the weekend prior, to even Augustana's record at 2-2. The Vikings beat NAIT 25-21, 26-24 and 25-19 in the first match and 25-23, 25-18 and 25-19 in the second match. Mark Willms with 12 kills, five digs and three blocks, and Nazheef Gangji with 13 kills, six digs and a block led the Vikings in the Nov. 1 outing. Thomas Regier with eight digs and Nathan Lehman with five blocks chipped in with good games. In Edmonton, Gangji racked up 20 kills and added six digs to lead the defence. Kent Sanregret collected five kills and 10 digs while Regier added 13 digs in support.

Last year, Team Alberta finished seventh after failing to reach the semifinals due to a tiebreaker following the round robin. Of the 20 athletes, 12 are returning from the team that played at the 2011 National Women’s U18 Championship in Saguenay, Quebec. U18 female squad is the final stage of the Team Alberta female program and one of the initial stages that Hockey Canada uses to help identify players for the national program.

Last soccer season golden for U18 Girls' Submitted by Camrose Inferno

In their final outdoor season playing together, this group of U18 girls brought home Tier 3 provincial gold for the second year in a row. The team played in two tournaments during the season. The Night Classic in Camrose and The Coca Cola classic in Red Deer at the Tier 2 level. The Night Classic produced a gold medal after the round robin event, where in Red Deer the girls settled for silver, losing the final to the Calgary Blizzard 2-0. Practices and games throughout the season was good preparation for the provincial tournament. “It’s always tough to balance the season out with all the second year girls involved in grad functions and studying for finals. I thought the team scheduled out their study time and time for soccer very well. The focus and performances during games and practices was fantastic. The coaches were very aware of their time commitments and made sure that they could have the time away from the field that they needed,” said coach Paul Stone. Once again Coaldale hosted the outdoor provincial tournament. The first game was Friday night against Calgary Blizzard. Before the first half was over, the Inferno were up 3-0. The second half produced no goals by either team as the Inferno’s defense held strong and didn’t allow Calgary back in the game. Saturday’s match was against the host team Coaldale. “There has been a lot of history between these two sides, a competitive but friendly history. Both sides know each other so well, and know what to expect,” said coach Stone. The Inferno came out on top in a very good game, 2-1. “There wasn’t much space out there. Both teams played well. In the end, I think our fitness won us this game. The girls on both teams played a great game. Very entertaining.” Only needing a tie in the last game, the Inferno was in control of the tournament. Signal Hill Strikers were standing in their way on the Sunday. The gold medal came with a 1-1 tie. “Both teams looked tired out there. I think our girls realized that this was it. Our last game together. The coaches were proud of how they pulled it together and did what they needed to do.” The coaching staff Paul Stone, Sam Burton and Jenna Keay can’t say enough about this group of girls. Over the years they have represented Camrose soccer proudly every where they have played. They have played the game in the spirit that it should be played. Proof of that was the presentation of the Fair Play Award two years running at the provincial tournament. These girls have learned how to win and lose with class. We would like to wish the graduating girls continued success in whatever they choose to do. It has been a pleasure coaching them throughout the years and we would like to thank them for their commitment and passion shown to the game over the years. Camrose is proud of their success and the sportsmanship they have exhibited.
