As a result they decided to stage the popular holiday classic again this year. A Christmas Story is a comedy that really brings out the Christmas spirit. One of the play’s funniest moments comes when one of the characters (Emma Hutchinson portraying Flick) accepts a dare and gets her tongue stuck on a freezing cold flagpole (scene being rehearsed at time of this photo). A Christmas Story runs Friday and Saturday, December 6, 7 and 13 as dinner theatres and December 8 and 14 as matinees at The Bailey. Tickets are available at Cathel Books.

Family literacy important to a child's good start By Murray Green

Camrose Family Literacy and Battle River Credit Union want children to have a good start in learning how to read. Children are all born with unlimited possibilities for the future. Research shows that during the first three years of life, critical brain connections are made and neurons are wired in ways that determine the way the child learns, thinks, and behaves for the rest of his/ her life. Parents provide the environment and experiences that shape how that future plays out. A positive start is key to a successful future. "Parents are not always aware of the powerful influence they have on their children's attitudes toward literacy and learning, or are not aware of how they can help their children do better in preparing for the school years," said Lynne Hartwick,

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Camrose Family Literacy director Lynne Hartwick, left, Battle River Credit Union marketing and communication manager Paulette Robinson and cyclist Alan Ford display the new book bags for the Books for Babies program. Parents of four-month-old babies receive the bag, a book and health information during a check-up at the health clinic. Battle River Credit Union sponsored the cost of the bags along with funds generated by Alan's bike tour.

of Camrose Family Literacy. "Family Literacy programs are set up to assist parents in providing their children with the solid foundation for learning that comes through

the acquisition of important early literacy skills. Some of the most important of these involve language acquisition, pre-reading and pre-writing experiences."

Parental knowledge is central. The family is where the cycle of learning begins, where the attitudes of parents about learning become the educational values of their children. "We believe that having quality children’s books for children to enjoy in the home is essential to the acquisition of these skills," said Lynne. "Two of the local family literacy programs offered to all young parents in the Camrose Community are Books for Babies and Read to Me. Both of these programs target new parents and provide them with important information on early learning, as well as a book bag and good quality children’s book." Alan Ford heads up the annual Biking for Books campaign to raise money to fund these two

community early learning programs. "This year, we collected $1,500 in personal donations and $1,500 in support from the Battle River Credit Union," said Lynne. "These funds will completely cover the costs of distributing 200 Read-to-Me bags containing important information on child development and a good quality children’s book to new parents in the Camrose area. As well, two, fourweek Books for Babies programs will be funded." The sponsors of this project believe in the importance of getting a head start on literacy. "Thanks to their generous backing, many families will have support in providing the best possible environment for early learning for their children," said Lynne.

Messiah Lutheran welcomes new refugee family By Dan Jensen

The members of Messiah Lutheran Church have opened their arms to another refugee family. Paula Valencia and her six-year-old daughter Sara Castro arrived in Camrose Oct. 27 after a ten hour flight that took them from Quito, Ecuador to Panama City in Panama, to Toronto and finally, Edmonton. Paula and Sara fled Colombia to Ecuador in March of 2012 after members of their family were murdered by Colombian guerillas. "They were living in constant fear of being found by the members of the FARC (guerillas)," said a Visa Office Referral Program profile. "One of (Paula's) friends suggested she move to Ecuador and live with a friend she had there." It was while they were in Ecuador that Paula and Sara were placed on the list of refugees who were eligible to come to Canada. "She has been classified by the Canadian government as a woman at risk," said Messiah Lutheran Church refugee committee chair Erhard Pinno. The Government of Canada will be responsible for 100 per cent of the health costs not covered by Alberta Health Care insurance for Paula and Maria for the first six months. In addition, the government will contribute $1,033.00 per month for the first six months for food, rent and incidentals. Messiah Lutheran Church, as the sponsor-

Paula Valencia and her daughter, Sara Castro.

ing organization, will be responsible for all other costs during the first year. Messiah is receiving help with the cost from St. Francis Xavier Church, which, a year ago, supported two refugee families from the Middle East. "They (St. Fran-

cis Xavier) had $6,000 remaining in their refugee account which they graciously agreed to transfer to us," said Pinno. "It is so nice to see the ecumenical spirit that exists amongst the churches in support of refugees in Camrose." Messiah Lutheran, St.

Francis Xavier and the United Church all have representatives on the Camrose Inter-Church Refugee Committee. Help appreciated The support Paula and Sara have received from members of Messiah and other community members has been greatly appreciated by Paula and Sara, who spent their first week Camrose living with the Rios family, which came here as Colombian refugees in November of 2008. "I am so thankful that there are people in this community who care," said Paula through her interpreter, Margarita Cifuentes. Paula has enrolled Sara in Grade 1 at Sifton School and is going to Edmonton once a week for Catholic Social Services orientation to the Canadian way of life. She is also taking English lessons and using a computer to help with translations. Paula admits that she was very nervous when she first arrived. "She told me that she was really scared and really disoriented at f irst because she didn't really know what was going on or what was going to happen," said Margarita. "It's a little bit different for her now because she has an apartment in which to live and knows that Sara is going to school." Paula started training for a career in dental hygiene while she was in Colombia and is hoping to continue along that

path once she becomes more settled. Sara had a tumour removed from her leg after being diagnosed with a rare disease known as Langerhans cell Histiocytosis, and requires yearly medical checkups. Messiah Lutheran Church has sponsored many refugee families since the early 1980s. "Shortly after I came to the church in 1979 we sponsored the Tao family from Vietnam (Vietnam boat people)," said Pinno. "The family stayed in Camrose for quite a few years, and then moved to Edmonton, where three of the sons own restaurants. We still visit occasionally with their parents." This is the second family Messiah has sponsored from Colombia. We select Colombia because it is one country that the Government of Canada has a special relationship with in terms of referrals from the visa office," said Pinno. "It is not costly to us and at the same time we can welcome more families, even though the needs are great in many other places of the world as well." Pinno said it is always encouraging when one church sponsored family helps another. "That is almost the ideal situation and we are grateful the families that are sponsored can do that. It helps with our mission as a congregation to reach out and share God's love with all people, especially refugees, because there are so many of them in the world today."

Do you have children in a City of Camrose school BRSD wants to hear from you

For most of the last year, Battle River School Division has been talking with parents about making changes to the way we configure our City of Camrose Schools. We’re having these conversations because school populations are shifting. Over the last few years, in the City of Camrose, that has included: • Having more younger students than older students enrolled in local schools; • Some Camrose schools being crowded, others not, as neighborhoods grow and change. More than 300 parents provided input last spring. Throughout the fall a committee of about 30 parents and school leaders has been working together on a draft plan for how schools in the City of Camrose might be “reconfigured” to meet these changing realities. Between November 22 and December 18, parents of students in City of Camrose schools are invited to provide feedback on the options this group has developed. Most parents will have already received an email that contains the first phase of a survey. If you are the parent of children in BRSD’s City of Camrose schools but did not receive the survey by email, please check your school’s website or the BRSD website. If you do not have a computer, please ask at your school office – they can provide you with a computer or a paper copy of the survey to fill out. Please make the most of this chance to provide your thoughts. Members of the Working Group on Camrose School Realignment very much appreciate hearing your feedback. They are intending to take a recommendation for change to the BRSD Board of Trustees in January, for implementation in the coming school year.

Camrose man facing charges As a result of an ongoing stolen property investigation, police have arrested and charged a 30-year-old Camrose man after police recovered numerous stolen items from two different north side residences. Police also seized a quantity of crystal methamphetamine from the male upon his arrest. The male was consequently charged with five counts of Possession of Stolen Property and one count of Possession of a Controlled Substance. The male remains in custody and appears in Camrose Provincial Court on Nov. 27 in relation to these matters.

The Camrose Booster thanks you for your interest in the letters page and encourages your comments. Hope for the next term

As an Augustana student and resident of Camrose, I have a keen interest in local politics. The long-standing confusion with respect to student voting rights was clarified only days before the recent election. Fortunately, I was able to vote, but the vast majority of my peers were not informed with sufficient notice. My hope in the next election is that eligibility and identification requirements will be clear well beforehand and that students will be encouraged to participate in municipal governance. As a resident, I feel a responsibility to take part in local politics. I found it worthwhile to engage in discussion with several candidates and fellow residents leading up to the election and I hope to continue this practice. I felt that it was important to vote, but also to inform myself as well as I could so that my participation would be helpful and not disruptive to the Camrose community. After reading various editions of the local newspa-

pers, looking through City budgets, and talking with candidates, it is my observation that several remarks over the past few months concerning the state of City finances are misleading. As an example, in his letter to the editor, Mr. Vanderwoude cites the “waste of money” in reference to city spending habits and the new City Hall. Mr. Vanderwoude is certainly not alone in this view, but I have found no strong foundation for claims of this nature. To my knowledge, no one has presented a viable alternative to the construction of City Hall (black mould is not cheap to eliminate). The Performing Arts Centre has been in the plans for years with funds earmarked and available. Others worry about the sustainability of basic services; road maintenance and repair alone has a budget of $1.6 million for the 2013 year. Yet others deem residential property taxes unreasonably high at 7.5 per cent (Wetaskiwin and Lacombe have rates of 7.3 per cent and 6.9 per cent). Relative to the provincial average, the Camrose rate has increased far more slowly. No doubt taxes are higher, but if trends continue, we will soon achieve a tax rate comparable to that of most communities in Alberta. Camrose property values have also increased dramatically, which leads to higher total property tax payments, causing the illusion that rates have increased exceedingly. By my own analysis, City finances have been responsibly managed. Camrose boasts services of regional significance, continues pushing tax-

es toward the provincial average, and remains well within its debt limit (reduced to 34 per cent in 2012). It is exciting to have elected a new council and a new mayor. I have enjoyed interesting discussion with many of our new representatives and I trust that they will seek always to inform themselves as best they can, as should we all. I have great hope for the coming term; already our many successes are to be proud of. Informed decision-making coupled with a passion for Camrose will only make our friendly city even better than it is today. Hans Asfeldt, Camrose Operation Legacy

I am a member of The War Amps Operation Legacy, which consists of young members of the Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program who are dedicated to preserving and commemorating Canada’s military heritage by teaching younger generations about our nation’s wartime history. This year, The War Amps is celebrating its 95th anniversary. Ninety-five years ago, war amputee veterans returned from the First World War and formed The Amputations Association of The Great War. The organization later became The War Amputations of Canada at the beginning of the Second World War. As a member of Operation Legacy, I have a duty to give back to those who started the organization. I have had the privilege to learn about Canada’s military heritage and also know what it is like to live without a limb – a

strong bond that I share with war amputee veterans. I have been involved with Operation Legacy for a couple years, and I believe that the message of “It was their war; it is our legacy” is an important one to share with all young Canadians. This message helps to let young Canadians know what has happened in the past, and hopefully prevent events like such from happening in the future. Operation Legacy is also a way of letting young Champs and their families build a bridge, so to speak, with veterans and the past of Canada. Being involved in Operation Legacy, I have had the opportunity to donate many documentaries to the Calgary Public Library and the Military Museums of Calgary library. I have handed out bookmarks and stickers to children at my old elementary school and have done a few presentations. The Military Heritage Series has allowed me to understand the history, struggles, defeats and victories that many Canadians had to go through in the name of peace and so that Canada and many other countries could have freedom. I encourage all of you to learn more about Canada’s history by means of The War Amps Military Heritage Series documentaries, which can be ordered through The War Amps website at waramps.ca. Sincerely, Jovanna Rodney Operation Legacy Member, Calgary

Q.

Why choose carpet?

A.

The benefits of carpet are wall-to-wall. Think of your inspired choice in carpet as the canvas on which to show off the rest of your home’s design elements. Walls, window treatments, furniture, even artwork can pull visual cues from the carpet you choose as your home’s design foundation. And with today’s stain- and wear-resistant carpets, it’s styling you can count on for years to come. Carpet is strong. Carpet stands up to foot traffic and resists life’s spills like never before. So, there’s no reason to put off buying new carpet because you have small children or pets. The carpet you buy today is going to keep you smiling in the future. Carpet is soft. Today’s carpet manufacturers have your lifestyle in mind, which is why they’re developing the softest, most foot-friendly carpets ever. Advances in fiber, weave and backing technologies have resulted in carpet that brings both durability and refinement to any room. While there’s much to consider in creating the desired look, style and long-term performance of your floors, know that you’ll find beautiful flooring that’s made affordable at Wideman Carpet One. Plus, the experts at Wideman Carpet One are always available to assist you personally and answer any questions you may have.

Q. A:

I need out of this snow and cold – where should I go for great weather and warm water?

Great news! There’s lots of choice! The Dominican Republic boasts some T oof the most beautiful beaches in the world. We have clients who go there w eevery winter. For a terrific cultural experience, plus great weather and awesome water, Cuba is a can’t miss choice for your holiday. Laidback Mexico is a terrific dollar value, easy to get to, and there is incredible diversity with so many wonderful resorts and two oceans adjoining the country. Jamaica offers spectacular beaches, plenty of fascinating history, warm and friendly people and if you thrive on music, their reggae-style is a real treat. But we can’t forget to tell you about Hawaii. It offers the best of everything. Terrific health care, ultrareliable weather, familiar food and on the island of Oahu – world-class shopping. We’d be remiss if we didn’t tease you with some outstanding cruise opportunities: food which rivals that of any restaurant, choices world-wide and, this winter, remarkable value for your money.

Q. A:

I find the holidays stressful.

What can I do?

Christmas holidays are known for a abundant giving, joy, and family time b they also have a flip side. The Festive but S Season can be stressful, for many reasons:

• Over-doing it. It’s easy to overspend, overeat and drink too much. • Overwhelm. Pressure mounts to gift the perfect thing, while parties and festivities can overtake relaxation time. • Family conflicts. Old family patterns we thought we healed years ago can come back in full force when expectations are high, making it easy to fall into old behaviours and conflicts.

Tips to stay calm and joyful throughout the season: • Limit your consumption of alcohol. It makes you more reactive and dehydrates you. Don’t use it to cope with stress; choose a healthier option. • Schedule me-time every day to relax and do nothing. • Do not react. Excuse yourself to the washroom and breathe long and slow until you feel neutral. • Create a holiday budget. Decide ahead how much you want to spend and stick to it. • Increase time with people who love and support you and limit time with those who don’t.

Dedication ceremony for Cornerstone Christian Academy By Laurel Nadon Special to the Booster

An addition to the Cornerstone Christian Academy in Kingman, which will more than double the size of the school, has been dedicated and is expected to be finished this December. The addition will add 14,400 square feet to the school and includes a library, six classrooms, cafeteria and lunch area, gym storage, washrooms and changing facilities for the gymnasium and a general purpose room. “There was such crowding in the school. The kids were in the staff room and every nook and cranny,” said Gayleen Erickson, fundraising committee member. “They were using every inch of space. It’s really increased the functionality of the school.” A dedication service was held on Friday, Nov. 15, with a silent auction, dinner and worship time. The prayer of dedication was given by Rev. Harold Schacher, who was the pastor of the Tofield Baptist Church when it was sold several years ago and the funds were designated for the school’s expansion. “I’m certainly delighted

Laurel Nadon, Camrose Booster Principal Steve Ioanidis gives a tour of the new addition at Cornerstone Christian Academy in Kingman to supporters and students after a dedication ceremony on Friday, November 15.

to be able to be here tonight and see all that’s taken place,” Schacher said during the dedication. “I pray that this school will be a lighthouse.” Pastor Garfield Vikse said the opening prayer, with the call to worship and songs by Principal Steve Ioanidis and students. The silent auction had over 50 items, including an Edmonton Oilers toaster, movie passes, gas

barbecue, horse care kit, Discovery Kids doll house, quilts, and the shoeing of five horses, with all funds raised going towards the cost of the addition. Parent Cheryl Galbraith said she’s looking forward to having the new space at the school. “I think it’s awesome, just to have more space and a student lounging area where they can relax and have it as their space.”

Erickson said that it was important to dedicate the new space to God before the space is used “The whole school is to bring glory to God,” Erickson said, adding that they hope each student will grow to serve God. She said that the fundraising by parents has been instrumental in the success of this project, and that there have also been many private donations by people who believe in Christian education for children. The school also constructed a new playground in August at an approximate cost of $120,000, with fundraising last year going towards that project instead of the building campaign. Deanna Margel, chair of the Cornerstone Christian Academy Society board, noted that the 130 students currently enrolled from Kindergarten to Grade 12 are using the church across the street for several classes, with Kindergarten classes entirely at the church. “If we were going to do an expansion, it made sense to make it larger than we need right now,” Margel said,

noting that the school can now hold 250 to 300 students. Opening in Camrose in 1986, the Cornerstone Christian Academy moved to Kingman in 1993. The only expansion since that time has been a gymnasium in 2003. The ground-breaking for this addition was held in the fall of 2012, with a construction cost now at $1.3 million. The school raised $100,000 in donations and received $400,000 from the sale of the Tofield Baptist Church, which leaves the school with a mortgage for the remainder. Margel said that this will be paid off through fundraisers as well as tuition fees. Flooring and some work in the washrooms still needs to be completed in the addition, with a target opening date of Dec. 1. The junior high and senior high students will move into the new part of the school. The shower room and cafeteria are not expected to be completed at this time. The society is still working towards raising $150,000 to cover any additional shortfalls or unexpected costs that may arise.

Q.

I’ve heard that using a travel agent costs more th h booking book k than on-line. Is this true?

A:

For most trips, the cost is vvirtually identical. Sometimes it iis merely a nominal difference. However, when you factor in the H vvalue provided by booking your trip through one of our Marlin Travel professionals, there might be a huge advantage in booking your trip with us. The common perception is that travel agents charge a percentage of the total cost of the trip. This is not at all accurate. In fact, at Marlin Travel we charge a service fee on packages of only $20.00 + GST. As travel advisors, we can often give first-hand impressions of other countries, and even resorts we have visited. We offer current knowledge on safe travel destinations, currency information, and health and travel insurance. Not only that, we can also provide information on places and attractions to see and activities available at or near your travel destination. Taking advantage of the expertise available when travelling, particularly using Marlin Travel agents, doesn’t cost more – you get more! Whether booking in person or online (And we even waive the service fee when done online!) this is a great way to shop locally. And don’t forget… You also earn Air Miles!

Q. A:

Did you know that in nearly half of Canadian households, the primary wage earner reported that if he or she died, surviving family members would have immediate trouble meeting everyday living expenses or be unable to cover expenses beyond only a few months? That survey finding from LIMRA reflects how millions of Canadians are either uninsured or underinsured and they’re overlooking an important aspect of their overall financial strategy. Think about what would happen if you unexpectedly passed away today. Who would pay for your funeral and your family’s monthly bills? Who would pay your monthly mortgage payment and other outstanding debts? How would your children’s future education be funded? And would your family be able to compensate for your lost paycheque, which would be gone forever? It all points to the importance of insurance which can provide money when you need it to offset lost earnings to your household or business in the event of a death or disabiity. The simple reality is that without adequate insurance coverage, your loved ones could face catastrophic consequences. Have a detailed discussion with your financial advisor about the insurance options available to you.

Q.

Should I have life and disability insurance? How much do I need?

I want to lose weight. What would you suggest?

A:

One of the newest tools in the sstruggle against weight loss is a rrevolutionary new super food that some ddoctors have called “a fat burner in a bottle” It is Ga Garcinia Cambogia, a pumpkin shaped fruit that grows in Southeast Asia and India. The key ingredient is a very important natural active compound called Chlorogenic Acid. Chlorogenic Acid releases glucose into the body and at the same time it boosts metabolism. Together, these two mechanisms combine to slow the absorption of fat, and stop weight gain. Dr. Oz has said that Garcinia Cambogia Extract is “The Holy Grail of Weight Loss“ and numerous clinical studies have demonstrated its effectiveness. Recently one study revealed that overweight adults lost on average 9 lbs when taking 750mg of Garcinia Cambogia over a period of 8 weeks. It has also been shown to lower cholesterol, decrease appetite and boost serotonin levels. Our Slim Centials line is also very popular and has also been endorsed on the Dr. Oz show. These combine four of the best clinically proven weight loss nutrients. Benefits include a decrease in appetite, a decrease in fat absorption and blocking blood sugar conversion to body fat.

Q.

How common is hearing loss?

A:

Having a hearing loss today is not as uncommon as one may believe. u The following statistics from the Better Hearing Institute illustrate this gap B bbetween those with hearing losses and those who seek care. - 1 in 4 workers exposed to high levels of noise will develop a hearing loss - only 13% of general practitioners screen for hearing loss. - 3 in every 10 people over age 60 have a hearing loss - 1 in every 6 people between ages 41 to 59 has a hearing loss. - 1 in every 14 Generation X’ers (29-40) already has a hearing loss. - 1.4 million children (under 18) have hearing problems - Only 1 in 5 people who could benefit from a hearing aid actually wear one. - 9 out of 10 hearing aid users report improvements in their quality of life. Clearly, these statistics are startling. This truly indicates that a lot of people are choosing to go without the benefits of solutions for their hearing loss. Most often, this can be due to confusion over what benefit hearing aids can provide and which type of hearing aid is best for a specific person’s loss. Call today for a consultation.

Q.

How do I backup my data?

A:

There are a few different options for b backing up your data and your choice of method will depend on different factors. m First, decide what it is you want to bback up. Some people will want to back up their entire computer, but if you have a lot of extraneous programs or files you don’t need or use, you may just want to back up the things that are important to you, such as pictures and particular documents. Next, determine the amount of data you want to back up. If you are backing up multiple individual folders or files, you may want to put them altogether in one large file. The size of this file will be the size of the data you are backing up. If you are backing up your entire computer, you can determine approximately how much data you are backing up by how much of the hard drive is filled. Once you know how much data you have to back up, you can choose the appropriate storage device. There are many devices from which to choose including external hard drives, flash drives, DVDs, CDs, or even floppy discs if you’re feeling whimsical. We recommend an external hard drive. Choose a device that has sufficient storage space for all your data. Then, copy your files to your chosen device. As an added layer of security you may wish to encrypt your device to keep your data safe should it get lost or stolen. Answer provided by:

Charities often target certain groups of people when soliciting donations. Those groups may include past donors and people who have recently attended charitable fundraisers. Such an approach can be very effective. It should come as no surprise that criminals posing as legitimate organizations tend to target specific groups of people as well. Anyone can be fooled by a fraudulent charity, but such criminals tend to target seniors more than others. Seniors often make attractive targets to con artists because seniors are most likely to have substantial savings, own their homes and/or have excellent credit. In addition, elderly victims of fraud and other crimes are less likely to report those crimes out of fear that their families may feel they are no longer able to take care of themselves or manage their own finances. These factors make seniors especially attractive and vulnerable to con artists, particularly those who prey on well-intentioned men and women by posing as fake charities. But there are steps seniors can take to protect themselves from fraud. * Be skeptical of solicitors. Many con artists will

indicate that persons have given to the charity in the past, hoping that prospective victims simply won’t remember if that claim is valid or not. If a solicitor or appeal letter claims that you donated in the past, don’t simply take it at face value, especially if you don’t recall making such a donation. Get specific information about alleged past donations, checking that information against your own bank records and receipts. Many donors claim donations as deductions on their tax returns, which also can be used to verify or debunk solicitors’ claims. Though not all solicitors claiming a past history of donations are dishonest, this is one way that criminals attempt to create a rapport with potential victims, so such claims should be verified before making any donations. * Don’t feel obligated to reciprocate a gift with a donation. Many charities send gifts, be it mailing labels or holiday cards, to prospective donors as a token of appreciation for past donations and as a way of encouraging future donations. Con artists are fully aware of this tactic and may try to imitate it in an attempt to defraud potential victims. No matter if the people behind those mailing labels or holiday ornaments are legitimate charities or con artists, you should not feel compelled to reciprocate a free gift with a financial donation. * Beware of solicitors pressuring you to donate. Reputable charities should not be on the verge of shut down if you fail to make a donation, so such organizations never pressure prospective donors into making

donations. If a solicitor is pressuring you into making a donation over the phone or in person, chances are strong that this person is not representing a reputable charity. In such instances, hang up the phone or, if the solicitor is on your property, politely close the door, ask the solicitor to leave your property and contact the local authorities. * Send donations directly to the charity after independently confirming their address. When making charitable donations, those donations should never be given directly to solicitors. Donations should only be made after you have independently confirmed the charity’s address and mailed straight to the organization. Never make a cash donation, as cash provides no paper trail should you want to deduct your donation or should you learn that you were victimized by a con artist posing as a representative of a reputable charity. * Request personal information not be shared. Upon receiving a charitable donation, many charities share their donors’ contact information with other charities. Such actions are legal as long as no sensitive information is shared. But many donors would prefer their contact information not be shared so they don’t find themselves being inundated with solicitations from other charities. Donors can ask to opt out of having their personal information shared upon making a donation. This is especially important for seniors living on fixed incomes who simply cannot afford to support many causes no matter how compelling those causes are.

Ways you can stay safe and warm this winter Here are some precautions that will help seniors keep safe and warm this winter. * Keep the thermostat set to at least 19 C to prevent hypothermia. Do not use the oven to provide heat in the house. If it is difficult to afford heating oil, propane or natural gas, find out if there is a senior program in your area.

* Inexpensive plastic sheeting can provide extra draft protection on windows. * Purchase carbon monoxide detectors to signal whether there is dangerous carbon monoxide present at the first instant. * If possible, pay a service or neighbor to shovel snow or plow the driveway. If

you are forced to shovel, take frequent breaks. Listen to your body and rest if you’re tired. * Make sure railings at entryways are in good working order and there is adequate lighting to ease with entering and exiting the home. * Keep walkways salted to prevent ice buildup.

Bodel Nicholas Shapka November 17, 1982 – October 17, 2013 It is with great sadness we announce the death of Bodel Nicholas Shapka on October 17, 2013. We would like to thank our friends, Two Hills RCMP, Two Hills Volunteer Fire Department, Two Hills EMS, Two Hills Hospital doctors, nurses and staff, and STARS.

He took lots of chances, and lived his life to the fullest. We will all miss Bodel, his smile, laugh, hugs and kisses, his gourmet meals, sharing jokes and crazy pictures, and most of all, his friendship. I am honoured to be his Mom but, most of all, honoured that he was my son, a brother to his sisters, a husband to Chantelle, and a dad to Rachael and Nickolas.

Edward Thompson September 25, 1926 – November 18, 2013 Edward Irving Thompson was born on his father’s 40th birthday – September 25, 1926. His father, Ingvald (Ed), had left Norway in 1903 and established a farm eight miles southwest of Viking. Ed was united in marriage to a neighbor girl,  Odelia Holmberg. The Holmberg family had immigrated to the Viking district in 1906 from Whiterock, South Dakota. Ed and Odelia had six children: Eddie, an older sister Alice, and two younger sisters Stella and Agnes. Eddie also had an older brother Ernest, and younger brother Gordon, who both died in infancy. Eddie completed grade nine at Alice Hill School. He worked with his father on the farm and attended Canadian Lutheran Bible Institute during the winter of 1944. The following year, he attended Olds Agricultural School. He took a second year of agricultural studies at the Vermilion School of Agriculture from 1946 to 1947. After his father’s death in 1947, he became a full-time farmer for 25 years. On August 15, 1953 Eddie married Ella Loken. They had three children Noella Joy (1954), Karen Odell (1956) and James Edward (1958). While living in Viking, Eddie and Ella were active member of Golden Valley Lutheran Church, The Farmer’s Union and the Canadian Commonwealth Federation Party. Eddie was a candidate in the 1959 and 1963 provincial elections. In 1969, Eddie began working at the Killam Auxiliary Hospital during the winter months. It was eventually decided to rent out the farm in 1972 and he began full-time work in Camrose. He worked at Bethany Nursing Home for 13 years as an orderly, while Ella worked for 13 years at Rosehaven Care Centre as a social worker. During this time, they were involved at Messiah Lutheran Church, taking part in MCF and a variety of Bible studies. The family enjoyed uplifting experiences at CLBI and HLLBC over the years. James returned to the family farm in 1982, so Eddie’s retirement in 1985 involved helping out on the farm, traveling with Mom on many exciting trips and enjoying family gatherings. Left to cherish his memory are his wife Ella; daughters Noella and Karen (Knute); son James (Corinne); six grandchildren Parker (Alexandra), Willow, Clark (Maddy), Austen (Nicole), Anna and Siri; and one great-granddaughter Ella Kathryn Thompson. A memorial service was held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 23, 2013 at Messiah Lutheran Church in Camrose, Alberta. Memorial donations may be made to CLBI or the Hastings Lake Lutheran Bible Camp.

Robert “Rob” Kenneth Robbins January 22, 1940 – November 18, 2013 Robert “Bob” Kenneth Robbins was born on January 22, 1940 to Alex and Frances Robbins in Moose Jaw, SK. He moved to Strome, AB at one year of age along with his parents and grandparents. He never did like school, so he began working for farmers at a young age. His biggest interest was baseball, and he began playing senior baseball at 13 years old. This was his greatest love. He loved his sports including baseball, hockey, curling, boating, hunting and skidooing. Dancing was something he loved to do and that’s where he met the love of his life. He married Doreen Larson on February 16, 1962 and to their union were born three children Brenda, Duane and Gail. As a family, most weekends were spent at ball diamonds. Bob worked on the farm for George Borgel for several years, then moved to Round Hill for three years until moving to his own farm north of Daysland. He then sold the farm and moved to Daysland in 1976. He worked for the town for several years as town foreman, then at Manalta Coal Mine and the County of Flagstaff. Because of his love for farming, he began working for Jack Moser. He spent 20 years with Jack and enjoyed operating the large equipment. In 2000, Bob and Doreen started doing the maintenance at Providence Place. In 2008, Bob had a heart attack, and was unable to continue working at Providence Place. It was at that time that Bob retired. Bob’s greatest love was being with his family, and especially the grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In March, Bob’s battle with cancer began and he was looked after in a hospital bed at home, and passed away at home with his family which was his wish. He is survived by his wife Doreen; three children Brenda (Mike), Duane (Brenda) and Gail (Joe); eight grandchildren Chris (Amanda), Shawn (Jody), Danielle (Ben), Terri-Lynn, Chantelle (Jordan), Brittany, Ryon and Shelby; four great-grandchildren Taylor, Adriene, Nolan and Alayna; brother Gordon (Rhoda); sister-in-law Gail; brother-in-law Lee; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins and one special Aunt Dorothy. Bob was predeceased by his parents; one brother Garry; and one sister Judy. We love you, Bob, and know that you are at peace now with no more suffering. A Funeral Service was held 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 21, 2013 from Daysland Community Hall with Rev. Brian Hunter officiating. Inurnment will take place at a later date. If family and friends so desire, memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to Providence Place, S.T.A.R.S, or to the charity of one’s choice.

Churchmice to present A Christmas Story

DUELLING PIANOS Friday, November 29, 7 to 11 p.m. Doors Open: 6 p.m. • Fundraising Event • 50/50 • Silent Auction

The Churchmice Players will be ramping up the laughter-metre in an upcoming production of The Christmas Story. “It’s a pretty funny play,” explained Mike Hicks, who is the play’s director and narrator. “There’s a little boy running around in a pink bunny outfit for a while, a dream sequence and a lot of other things that are sure to bring out the chuckles.” Based on a book entitled In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash by Jean Shepherd, A Christmas Story centres on a young Indiana boy by the name of Ralphie who wants only one thing for Christmas – an official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model BB gun with a compass in the stock. Despite protests from his mother that he will “shoot his eye out,” he persists, and unsuccessfully tries to enlist the assistance of both his teacher and Santa Claus, both of whom tell him the same thing. Ralphie is portrayed in the play by Hicks’ son, Logan. “It is awesome being able to be involved in the play with him,” said Hicks. “Last year when he was in it I was just the director but this year, as the narrator (who is actually Ralphie telling the story as a grown-up several years later) I have the chance to be out on the stage with him.” Another of the play’s major characters is Ralphie’s father, who wins a major award in a newspaper quiz (a lamp shaped like a woman’s leg, complete with stiletto heels and fishnet stockings) that he proudly displays in the home’s front window. “The father is played by Trevor McTavish, who is just hilarious,” said Hicks. “He (the father) goes crazy over turkey and is devastated when the lamp is broken. Whether or not his wife broke it on purpose or accidentally we don’t know.” Continued on page 22

David Myles stopping at Bailey Theatre for Nov. 28 party By Murray Green

Following a Joe Jackson theme style, David Myles created two moods of music to satisfy all of his fans. Whether your function is a dinner party, or dance party, the artist has it covered in a new double album, In the Nighttime. It’s what happens when the two sides of his musical persona – sultry crooner and energetic showman join forces. Camrose will have the opportunity to experience both. David is performing in the Rose City Roots Music Society series at the Bailey Theatre on Thursday, Nov. 28. Disc one brims with vintage pop songs and romantic folk ballads. Disc two is a six song EP of contemporary, beatladen tracks produced by hip hop artist Classified. One is the soundtrack for your dinner party, while the other gets the dance party started.

Each album establishes a different mood, but both are powered by Myles’ superior songwriting and smooth vocals. “They are both dream records. The full-length represents the ultimate session with the best live players,” said David. “The EP was the product of an amazing ongoing collaboration, and I couldn’t help but include it. This has been a really creative time, and the double album is a complete picture of where I am right now, musically.” Two love songs highlight the first disc. “What Would I Have To Do” perfectly captures the soaring emotions of unrequited love. David also includes a series of songs inspired by the doo-wop style of the 1950s. “Change My Mind” is a lament for simpler times. David uses his finetuned material during a 35-show tour in Western Canada. He has assem-

bled a line-up of musicians that includes David Piltch on bass, Kevin Breit on guitar, mandolin, and dobro, Davide DiRenzo on drums, and Aaron Davis on piano. Disc two, nicknamed the “after party,” is the latest incarnation of an ongoing collaboration between David and hip hop producer Classified (a partnership which led to the Juno award-winning triple platinum-selling song “Inner Ninja”). Dance beats and a pop-infused chorus make the tune irresistibly catchy. While the CD has an urban feel, the tracks echo the sounds of vintage rhythm and blues and rock and roll. This is a modern take on The Platters, Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, and Jackie Wilson. David picked up the Folk/Roots Music prize last year at the SOCAN awards. He has also earned a reputation as a great showman.

Opening new markets for resources By Verlyn Olson, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development

Alberta is rich with resources and Premier Alison Redford’s Building Alberta Plan is helping ensure we can get our goods and services to new and emerging markets. For Alberta’s farmers and food processors, the world is an ever-growing global marketplace with more than seven billion mouths to feed. It is estimated that within the next 10 to 15 years, Canada will be one of a handful of countries producing more food than it consumes. Couple this with the quality and food safety demands of growing middle classes in countries like China and India, and Alberta is in a great position. Traditionally, we have relied on the United States to buy our products. While it’s great to have a best friend, it’s not prudent to have only one friend. Diversity will help create more economic opportunity, investment, jobs and revenues. It will also give us options when trade issues, like the U.S.’s unfair Mandatory Country

Verlyn Olson

of Origin Labelling provisions, threaten our industry. One of the most important new friends Alberta can make is China. The premier has been working hard to open access for our products in this key market. When she was in China this fall, she promoted our highquality beef, and also talked about other products including honey, canola oil, wheat, barley, oats and peas. Kazakhstan is another emerging market of interest to Alberta’s agriculture industry. I recently visited the country with some of our

industry representatives. The Kazakhstanis are very interested in quality cattle, genetic material and expertise and I expect we will develop a long and mutually profitable relationship with the country. While emerging markets like China or Kazakhstan provide a great opportunity for Alberta, we are also developing our trade relationships with some of our oldest friends. The recently announced tentative agreement with the European Union will open doors to a market of more than half a billion people for Canadian producers. This new deal is tremendous news for our cattle and pork producers, as well as other product and service providers. For me, there is a strong connection between our agricultural sector and rural development – as one flourishes, the other follows. I know Alberta’s commitment to market access will benefit both rural and urban Alberta, ensuring that we continue to have a vibrant and thriving economy.

One of the play’s funniest moments comes when Ralphie’s friend, Flick, a character portrayed by Emma Hutchinson, accepts a dare and gets her tongue stuck to a freezing cold flagpole. “Emma does a brilliant job of talking with a hurt tongue, screaming to police to help her,” said Hicks. “We actually have two guys from the Camrose Fire Department in vintage fire gear who come out and help free her from the pole.” A Christmas Story’s cast has five main child actors and four adults. Five more children play the role of the bloodhound dogs who ignore everyone but Ralphie’s father whenever he arrives home from work. A Christmas Story is being produced by Sylvia Lyon, a veteran of many other Churchmice productions. Rick Myers is in charge of the stage crew, while Hicks’ wife, Kathy, is the stage manager.

“We have a great cast and a great crew,” said Hicks. The Churchmice Players presented A Christmas Story for the first time in 2012 with great response, prompting the decision to stage it again. “Our tickets went really fast,” said Hicks. “In fact, there was one group of 128 that we had to turn away because we didn’t have enough seats for them.” The underlying message in A Christmas Story is that while gifts are nice, it is family that really matters. “It is a great play for Christmas because it brings out the Christmas spirit,” said Hicks. “Ralphie eventually comes to accept that he is not going to get his wish and he is fine with that just as long as he can spend time with his family.” A Christmas Story runs Friday and Saturday, December 6, 7 and 13 as dinner theatres and December 8 and 14 as matinees. Tickets may be purchased at Cathel Books.

Grateful Grannies Christmas Market Submitted by Grateful Grannies

The Camrose and Area Grateful Grannies are preparing for another Christmas Market to be held at the Bailey Theatre on Sunday, Dec. 1, from 2 to 4 p.m. You are invited to attend to visit with friends, listen to live string music, shop for baked goods and one-of-a-kind crafts and enjoy savory refreshments. Many members of the Grateful Grannies plus local artisans have donated items for the sale. For example, Fran Reed heads up a group who are busy making AIDS Angels, a popular sale item. Edythe Schneider has designed cards for those special people in your life. There will be unique hand-sewn items, hand-crafted jewelry, and home baking which you won’t want to miss. If you want to donate a handmade item to the sale, please contact Carolyn Andersen at 780-6790411 or Janet Galenza at 780679-2676. Also part of this magical Christmas setting will be the sounds of the Wetaskiwin Strings, organized by Maya Rathnavalu. She will be accompanied by other musicians from the area. Mardell Olson suggests that, “It is definitely worth coming to the Christmas Market just to hear the Wetaskiwin Strings; however we hope you will come to shop as well.” There is a five dollar charge to cover costs and refreshments. The Grateful Grannies are comprised of over 100 grandmothers and grand “others” from Camrose and Area who are committed to supporting the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers

to Grandmothers Campaign. The Grateful Grannies are one of over 240 grandmother groups across Canada which raise funds to assist grandmothers in sub-Saharan Africa as they care for a generation of orphaned grandchildren and others affected by HIV/AIDS. Over 11.6 million children have been orphaned by AIDS on the continent. The African grandmothers, despite their hardships, have become the heart and the energy behind the response to the pandemic. The Stephen Lewis Foundation works with community-level groups in Africa to provide a wide range of supports, including feeding programs, housing, education assistance, and counseling. These grassroot organizations are driving the response to the AIDS pandemic in ways that are innovative, sophisticated and impactful. Chair for the Christmas Market, Janet Galenza, said “It is truly an honor to be part of organizing the Christmas Market. I am new to the Grateful Grannies but I’ve found the group passionate to raise funds to help African grandmothers, children and communities affected by HIV/ AIDS and I share their interest and passion.” The Christmas Market committee also includes Sue Wolfe, Lisa Alain, Carolyn Andersen and Mardell Olson. The Grateful Grannies welcome everyone to enjoy an afternoon with them and recognize Dec. 1 which is World AIDS Day. For more information about the event contact Barb Stroh 780-672-6159.

Municipalities close tax gaps to attract business By Murray Green

Most municipalities want to attract more businesses to their community to increase the tax base. However, when a new business starts, or plans to relocate, they look at tax gaps to help with the decision process. A Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) study reveals that the average tax gap between residential and commercial property in Alberta jumped 53 per cent since 2003. In a comparison of municipal property tax mill rates paid by Alberta’s residential and commercial property owners, things have improved since last year. The report looks at 2012 property tax data for all municipalities by size and region, with a focus on 86

municipalities with a population over 5,000. The report calculates the property tax gap, the differential between commercial and residential property tax mill rates. As an example, a tax gap of 2.5 means a commercial property owner pays two and a half times more in property taxes on the same value of property. For every $1,000 a residential property owner pays in taxes, a business property owner pays $2,500. The CFIB report confirms businesses in Alberta, including small businesses, continue to pay far more than their fair share of municipal property taxes. The average property tax gap for those 86 municipalities with a population of at least 5,000 increased from 2.42 in 2011 to 2.48 in 2012.

Since 2003, the average tax gap for municipalities with at least 5,000 people has grown by 53 per cent (from 1.62 in 2003 to 2.48 in 2012). The three worst tax gaps in 2012 for all municipalities with a population of at least 5,000 were Ponoka County (6.40), County of Wetaskiwin (6.24), and Banff (6.0). Overall tax gaps for Alberta’s 18 cities improved from 2.21 in 2011 to 2.13 in 2012. Camrose and 13 other cities narrowed their tax gap (Calgary, Medicine Hat, Wetaskiwin, Lethbridge, RM of Wood Buffalo/Fort McMurray, Red Deer, Fort Saskatchewan, Lloydminster, Cold Lake, Camrose, Grande Prairie, Leduc, St. Albert, and Lacombe), which is a

good sign for attracting business. The City of Camrose sits at a 1.71 gap, which is comparable to Airdrie 1.85, Fort Saskatchewan 1.85, Lloydminster 1.80, Cold Lake 1.73, Grande Prairie 1.69 and Spruce Grove 1.65. Calgary remains the worst offender among Alberta’s cities with a property tax gap of 4.88 in 2012, down from 5.09 in 2011. Edmonton has the second worst gap among cities at 3.02 in 2012, up slightly from 3.01 in 2011. “Thankfully, there was some improvement in the tax gaps for many cities in 2012. In most cases, however, it was likely the result of changes in the assessment base rather than a conscious tax policy decision by the local govern-

ment”, said CFIB Alberta director, Richard Truscott. “We plan to work with new city councils from across the province to create firm plans to close the property tax gap. Those municipalities that do make a deliberate attempt to create a fairer balance, such as Lloydminster and Fort Macleod, deserve to be applauded. Sadly, however, too many other municipal governments across Alberta continue to treat small business like a cash cow.” The CFIB report outlines a series of recommendations for provincial and municipal governments to ensure the property tax system becomes more balanced over time, including introducing legislation to put a cap on the maximum municipal tax gap allowed.

Public Intellectuals and Festivals of Ideas

TRIBUTE SHOW

Photos by Laurel Nadon

Top: Ken Grambo shared his guitar talent with the sold-out crowd during the Lyndon Olson Tribute Show at the Bailey Theatre Nov. 17. Below: Stephen Olson, nephew of the late Lyndy Olson, perfoms at the tribute show.

The University of Alberta will soon host an evening with Margaret Atwood and Alanis Morissette at the Winspear Centre in Edmonton. Their discussion on “Life, Love and Art” is part of the University’s Festival of Ideas, an interactive and inclusive forum facilitating creative thinking that responds to the challenges of our time. Inaugurated in 2008, the biennial Festival is a partnership among the City of Edmonton, the Edmonton Arts Council, Capital Power, and the University of Alberta. The Festival has hosted performers, writers, visual artists, scientists and public intellectuals with the purpose of forging connections between the university and the broader community, and among disciplines. To that end, Salman Rushdie, Barbara Coloroso, Thomas King, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Jared Diamond, Steven Pinker and Jian Ghomeshi, and many others, have visited Edmonton to share their views and exchange ideas with the general public through forums, panel discussions, artistic productions and community events. The popularity of the Festival, which takes place in November of even years, has led to this special event with Morissette and Atwood, and to this Second Thoughts column. I’m writing not to publicize the event—it has been sold out for weeks—but to draw some connections between the Festival and this column in the Camrose Booster, and to reflect on the place of the “public intellectual,” in light of the recent debate between two of my colleagues but also in the ways that these celebrity thinkers are useful in my own intellectual pursuits as a teacher and researcher. The Capitol Power website describes the Festival of Ideas as “a means to encourage everyone in our community to push boundaries, reassess old habits, challenge

taken-for-granted assumptions.” I would suggest that the Second Thoughts columns seem the same type of forum as professors from Augustana have functioned as public intellectuals offering their well-considered responses to any number of current events and sociocultural trends. The recent columns by Alex Carpenter and Roger Milbrandt are one case in point: Dr. Carpenter derided celebrities who made claims and judgments outside of their so-called areas of expertise and Dr. Milbrandt countered with the foundational tenets of freedom of expression and the ability of the public to separate idiocy from thoughtful observation and opinion. As one example, and although he’s highly eccentric, Neil Young is not an idiot. The details of his many scientific and mechanical inventions and innovations, most of them environmentally inspired, make his recent autobiography, Waging Heavy Peace, heavy going indeed. Mostly, I think that anyone who’s seen the oilsands (or strip mining or mountain-top removal mining) understands exactly what type of environmental exploitation and devastation is at stake. Young simply

has the celebrity to further his environmentalism; he is rather a walking festival of ideas. All this brings me to the Festival and the MorissetteAtwood show. I was asked to speak about Morissette’s work as part of a Festival of Ideas “primer,” and did so last week at the Edmonton Public Library. I prepared my paper in the midst of Alex and Roger’s columns, and they prompted me to think about Morissette and Atwood as public intellectuals, a term I think most Canadians would accept for the latter and very few would for the former. Morissette is, like Young, just another Canadian-turned-American pop star with wide-ranging opinions and very little credibility, yes? Well, to my mind, the answer is no; she’s far more than that. Like Young, Morissette has no advanced education but possesses a remarkable talent and a keen intellect. She is a superb critical thinker, and, like Atwood, a leading feminist. Her breakout album, Jagged Little Pill (1995), recorded when she was only 20 offers razor sharp criticism of sexual exploitation and capitalistic misogyny, and how they affected her body, spirit, and career. Morissette was one of the many women who fought in the 1990s to have women taken seriously in the music industry and beyond. I have spent years in the academy training as a feminist thinker and critic, but with that record. Morissette influenced my then teenage daughter’s feminism far more than I ever did. I expect that Morissette’s dialogue with Atwood may well map out the path of feminism in North America over the past half-century, and I look forward to a festival of ideas that will offer new ways to think about gender-driven oppression and exploitation. I look forward to what I will learn from these incredibly credible “non-experts.”

This means preparing a written complaint yourself or contacting Camrose County Protective Services and giving information about the complaint to the Protective Services Administrative Assistance, who, in turn, will create a written complaint. Complaints will not be accepted as a third party. For example, complaining to your local Councillor and then the Councillor passing it on down the chain of command.

- Description of: vehicles, plates, people, animals, etc. - Any information you may find useful to aid in our investigations - No information will be considered insignificant Camrose County Officers and staff guarantee the complainant(s) will remain anonymous if they so choose. File(s) will not be created or investigated without the above information given. There is no such thing as insignificant information. Document anything you feel will aid Law Enforcement Officers in the execution of their duties. All complaints will be prioritized and investigated in a timely manner.

AG PLASTIC RECYCLING

West Dried Meat Lake Regional Landfill would like to encourage farmers to recycle their agricultural plastics. There is some concern that much of this material is being burnt. The burning of plastics releases very toxic contaminants into the air, not to mention the residue left behind to be absorbed back into the soil. WDML Landfill receives ag plastic free of charge to County members. To bring these plastics to the landfill, please ensure the following measures are taken: • Plastic must be relatively clean • Role and tie into bundles • Separate twine. Thank you for your cooperation.

lease agreement upon application • During the Business Incentive period, taxes must be paid in full by the deadline date of July 31 or another date as established by Council • During the Business Incentive period the Business Incentive Grant shall be null and void if: - a successful annexation application into an adjacent urban municipality, or - a successful assessment appeal to a Local or Provincial Assessment Review Board, or - a change to the Provincial Legislation or Regulations with regard to jurisdiction of Provincial Assessment Code. • The business Incentive Grant will come into effect in the year following the submission of the Certified Written Appraisal. To be eligible for the Business Incentive Grant, all of the eligibility requirements must be met as per Bylaw 1305. Camrose County is committed to encouraging the strength and vitality of our local economy. Enabling a prosperous economy is one of its strategic priorities. The Business Incentive Grant is intended to make a positive contribution towards the cost of creating a business entity.

TRESPASSING Trespassing within Camrose County is a Provincial Violation, not a Criminal Code Offence, therefore County Peace Officers enforce this legislation under the Petty Trespass Act. It is an offence to operate off-highway vehicles (OHVs) on private property without the owner’s permission; OHVs are classified as snowmobiles, quads and dirt bikes. The land does not have to be posted by the owner advising “No Trespassing”. If you do not have permission orally or in writing you DO NOT have permission. Camrose County does allow OHVs to operate on gravel roads providing the OHVs are properly registered, insured and they are abiding by the rules

of the road. OHVs are not permitted on 1, 2 and 3 digit highways. This includes the ditches, as the ditches are considered part of the highway. Enforcing trespassers is a difficult task for Law Enforcement Officers, so when people witness these violations, any information they can provide the County Officers or the RCMP would be appreciative, for example licence plate, color and make of the OHV. Another option property owners have started to do, is to install video cameras or Trail CAMS on their property in hopes of identifying the violators. These videos make excellent evidence in Court Proceedings.

The fine for trespassing in the province of Alberta is $287.00

SNOW COMES EARLY TO CAMROSE COUNTY Well, whether you love the snow or not, Mother Nature has felt the need to supply us with copious amounts of it early this year. The first snow hit Camrose County November 2, 2013 and we have received more since then – and we’re not even out of November! Pubic Works would like to remind ratepayers to refresh themselves with the Camrose County Policy 17.24 Sanding, Policy 17.25 Snowplowing and Bylaw 1141. These policies and bylaw may be found on our County Website at www.county.camrose.ab.ca/content/county-policies and www.county.camrose.ab.ca./content/county-bylaw in which they outline the Sanding and Priorities for Snowplowing and the pushing of snow across roadways. It is important to note that, should you wish your driveway to be plowed, you must first have a Save Harmless Agreement signed with Camrose County, and second, you must phone Public Works (Phone 780.672.4449) and request your driveway be plowed. “Just like Fire Fighters fight fires… Snow Fighters fight ice and snow.” Both can be unwelcome events, but we are there to help, and we are doing the best we can with the equipment and manpower available to us. So, the next time you see those amber lights flashing, give the operator a big smile and a wave… he’ll love you for it!

RIGHT OF WAYS Camrose County would like to remind its residents that the title to all road allowances within the County, whether presently in use as a roadway or not, is vested in the Crown in Right of Alberta. The County has direction, control and management of all roadways within the County, except Provincial Highways. Any development of the road allowance requires permission from Camrose County. Development includes placement, construction, extension, erection of any building, structure, fixture, road, excavation or other development, whether on, above or below ground or the display of machinery, motor vehicles or other articles, whether placed for storage, wrecking or for the purpose of advertising for sale. It also includes the brushing and placement of trees or other vegetation, including crops. A road right of way is the strip of public land between private properties, typically intended for public travel and use. In Camrose County, most road right of ways are 20 meters (66 feet) wide, though there are some that may be wider. Road right of ways may or may not contain a constructed road. County road right of ways are governed by the Camrose County Road Use Bylaw 1141 and enforced by all local law enforcement. If any person(s) are found guilty of “Unauthorized Development on a Roadway,” these people could face a fine of up to $250.00 This bylaw can be viewed on the Camrose County webpage at county.camrose.ab.ca. Road right of ways cannot be blocked by fences or gates or other methods that prevent access to the public by foot, ATV, or other means unless they have been officially closed and consolidated by Camrose County. To determine the status of an undeveloped road allowance in your area, you can contact the Public Works Department at (780)672.4449. Undeveloped road right of ways may be closed and sold or leased to adjacent landowners if the closure will not negatively impact access to land or future development of the community.

ROAD CLOSURE PROCESS: 1) Apply to Camrose County 2) Bylaw is created and given first reading. 3) Bylaw is advertised to neighbors and affected parties 4) A Public Hearing is held about the proposed closure 5) If there are no objections, the bylaw is sent to Alberta Transportation for approval 6) If approved, the bylaw returns to Camrose County for final readings 7) Applicants must have the road consolidated into the adjacent properties

ROAD CLOSURE EXPENSES: 1) Application fee 2) Value of the land to be closed (paid to Camrose County.) 3) Cost to survey and consolidate the closure If you are interested in the road closure process, please contact the Planning Department at planning@county.camrose.ab.ca. Camrose County will authorize the brushing of firewood for the purpose of clearing of County right of ways; however the person intending to complete this work must first

contact the Public Works Department and declare their intentions regarding the right of way and then will have to sign a “Save Harmless Agreement” with the County. Copies of the Save Harmless Agreement along with Policy #176/13 in relation to roadside brushing and clearing of sightlines can be found at www.county.camrose.ab.ca. Any further questions regarding the policy or agreements, please contact the Public Works Department at 672.4449 or publicworks@ county.camrose.ab.ca. Any landowner wishing to complete roadside mowing and/or vegetation control within the County right of way adjacent to their lands, must contact the Camrose County Ag Service Board office at (780)672.4765 prior to June 1 to coordinate. Should the landowner choose to be in a “no spray zone,” the landowner must take efforts to control the weed population. Roadside mowing’s purpose is to assist with weed control, provide a firebreak, reduce the amount of load material in ditches, enhance maintenance and minimize gravel losses and to prevent snow drifting on roads. Haying of Camrose County right of ways must be completed by July 15. Bales in the right of way must be stored as far from the road surface as possible and removed from the right of way within two weeks of completing the operations. Removal of bales and equipment in a timely fashion is required because they could be hazardous to errant vehicles. DID YOU KNOW… In the Province of Alberta, Crown Land, also called public land, is territory registered in the name of “Her Majesty the Queen in the Right of Alberta” as represented by Alberta Transportation and remains under the administration of Alberta Transportation until the land is sold or transferred via legislation, such as an Order in Council. Crown Land is governed by the Public Lands Act. If you have any questions that relate to Crown Land, the Public Land Act or lands adjacent to a provincial right of way, please contact Alberta Transportation at the Vermillion District Office (780)853-8182 or www.transportation.alberta.ca/613

library during the summer have a greater chance of success when they return to school, and that libraries help create future voters that can make informed decisions. It also states that adults with strong literacy skills enjoy many positive benefits, including salaries that are 33 per cent higher than those who do not have such skills. Using the average price of $30 for books, magazines, audibooks and reference materials (ranging from $10.99 to $150), Camrose residents borrowed $5,466,960 worth of library materials in 2012. The number of hours spent by library users on the internet in 2012 was 12,998. “The average internet cafe in Alberta costs $5 an hour,” states the handout. Access to the internet is a fundamental human right and having access available in the library levels the socio-economic playing field. The internet is used by business people in town for short periods, tourists, students, for job hunting, keeping in touch with family and more.” Cryderman noted in a letter to the mayor and council that securing sustainable funding to maintain current levels of service continues to be the greatest challenge facing the Camrose Public Library board. “In 2014, the Culture and Community Spirit grant ($5,000 a year), as well as the STEP employment grant ($5,000 per year) have been discontinued. There are no grants to replace this revenue.”

Camrose Public Library will not be asking for an increase in City funding for 2014. Camrose Public Library director Deb Cryderman told Mayor Mayer and City councillors Nov. 18 that the library has been able to keep its budget at the 2013 level thanks to significant savings in the cost of renovations. “That is not to say our expenses have not increased,” said Cryderman. “To the contrary, they have. Our consideration though is for the new council at the table and for managing tax dollars in an effectual manner.” The City of Camrose provided $482,078 of the library’s 2013 operating revenue of $761,465. The provincial government provided grants totalling $122,694, while Camrose County provided grant funding totalling $105,106. “Camrose County is being asked by the library for an increase this (next) year,” said Camrose Public Library board chair Anjah Howard. “We asked for an increase for 2013 but we did not receive it.” City of Camrose residents account for 83 per cent of Camrose Public Library card holders and 74 per cent of the circulation. Camrose County residents account for 17 per cent of the card holders and 21 per cent of the circulation (as of Sept. 30). The residents of Bashaw, Bawlf, Bittern Lake, Edberg, Ferintosh, Hay Lakes and Rosalind account for five per cent of the circulation. Camrose Public Library has been offering membership cards free of charge to all City of Camrose residents since 2012. The number of new city memberships that had been created as of Aug. 26 of this year was 694. Cryderman noted Camrose Public Library is where we connect with our community and the people in it. “No other place in the city provides educational accessibility, encourages social gatherings to build personal and professional skills sets and mentors all community members with no discrimination.” Cryderman explained that for every $1 it receives the library provides a $10.35 return in the form of services to the community through programming, materials and computer access. Statistics show that 11,583 people accessed library programs in 2012. “It is clear,” said the director, “that the library is part of what makes this a great city.” A Camrose Public Library handout indicates that children who attend reading programs at the

GMC Sierra Making a splash

Pete Pastuck By Dan Jensen

The 2014 GMC Sierra at McClellan Chevrolet Buick GMC in Camrose has been making quite the splash. "Our customers are liking what they see," said McClellan Chevrolet Buick GMC dealer principal Will McClellan. "There isn't another truck quite like it." Rich V-6 heritage The 2014 Sierra offers the choice of three new, advanced EcoTec 34 engines – a 5.3 litre V-8, a 6.2 litre V-8 and a 4.3 litre V-6, each of which is designed specifically for the high trailering and hauling demands unique to truck buyers. Sierras equipped with the 4.3 litre EcoTec 3 V-6 have trailering ratings of up to 7,200 pounds (3,266 kg) for a regular cab, short bed, four-wheel drive model. The V-6 produces an SAE certified 285 horsepower and is matched with a proven, efficient, six-speed automatic transmission. The new V-6 features three state-of-the-art technologies – direct injection, active fuel management (cylinder de-activation), and continuously variable valve timing – that have been proven and perfected through six million hours of computational analysis

by engineers studying the combustion process. In all, ten million CPU hours were spent refining and making the most of the Sierra's EcoTec 3 engines. "This is technology no other truck maker can match, and we offer it in every EcoTec 3 engine for every customer," said Jordan Lee, GM Powertrain chief engineer. "It is a standard feature so our drivers get our best and most sophisticated technology, regardless of trim level." Although it shares only a handful of parts with previous Sierra engines, the new EcoTec 3 V-6 builds on experience gained from millions of trucks and billions of real-world customer miles resulting from a half century of leadership in V-6 engine development. In 1960, GMC debuted the first V-6 pickup truck ever and offered it exclusively through most of the 1960s. That engine, offered in various displacements starting at 5.0 litres, was designed with aluminum pistons, improved cooling and a stout crankshaft and bearings designed for unprecedented durability. "The family of V-6 engines introduced in 1960 was designed to last, and I've heard of some owners going more than 450,000

miles on the original engine," said Donald Meyer, GMC truck historian. "They had really high torque and pulled loads well. GMC knew how to build durable, reliable engines that never quit." Like the 2014 engine, the 4.3 litre V-6 introduced as standard equipment for GMC half-ton pickups in 1985 used geometry and engineering from the brand's proven Small Block V-8. As with today's V-6, engineers studied the combustion chamber, developing "Vortec" technology that swirled the air and fuel inside the engine to create a more homogenous mix, improving power and efficiency. That engine was the basis for new generations of engines throughout the 2013 model year. Fuel economy The all-new Sierra 2014 spent more development time in a wind tunnel than any GMC pickup before it, resulting in design changes that benefit both fuel efficiency and interior quietness. A new air dam below the Sierra's front bumper successfully reduces drag because it directs air toward the ground and away from the truck's rough underbody. And Sierra's ducted flow path between the

grille and radiator prevents air from swirling inside the truck's front cavities. Even the top of the Sierra's tailgate and the centre high-mounted stop lamp are optimized to guide air cleanly around the truck. Safety features The 2014 Sierra comes with available advanced active safety features never offered to full-size pickup truck owners, including Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning. The manner by which alerts from the system are delivered to the driver is equally innovative, thanks to GMC's optional Safety Alert Seat, which provides feedback transmitted as a vibration through the surface of the driver's seat bottom cushion. When the Lane Departure Warning system's camera detects the Sierra is leaving a lane without a turn signal active in that direction, a vibration in the left or right seat bolster directs the driver's attention to the side of the lane encroachment. When a potential collision is detected ahead by the Forward Collision Alert system, both sides of the seat vibrate. "It's akin to someone tapping on your shoulder in a crowd to get your attention," said General Motors

Active Safety Technical Fellow Raymond Kiefer. "Using the tactile sense to communicate crash threat direction provides an effective and intuitive way to cut through the clutter of visual and auditory sensory information that drivers routinely experience." Forward Collision Alert uses a camera behind the windshield to monitor traffic ahead and estimate time to collision. A green vehicleshaped icon on the instrument cluster lets the driver know the system detects a vehicle ahead. When the Sierra gets too close to a vehicle ahead the icon turns orange. When approaching a vehicle too rapidly, red lights flash on the windshield and the driver is alerted either audibly or through the optional Safety Alert Seat. Lane Departure Warning uses an icon of a vehicle crossing a dotted lane marker and shines green when detecting a lane ahead at speeds above 50 km/h. The icon glows amber and flashes when a warning is active. See the 2014 GMC Sierra at McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC at 3850-48 Avenue, Camrose. Phone 780-672-2355 and ask for one of the friendly sales professionals.

Four new members of the Wall of Fame at the Camrose Composite High School shared insights into how they have found success at a ceremony at the school on Friday, Nov. 15. Dr. John Andersen, Dr. Beth Balshaw, Dan Olofson and Max Lindstrand were recognized at the event for leadership in their careers and communities. Jim Ofrim, former CCHS principal and master of ceremony at the event, said that the Wall of Fame was began to recognize former students and faculty members who have contributed greatly in their careers and community service. “We also wanted to celebrate the proud history of the school,” Ofrim said, noting that the school’s 50th anniversary is in June. “We’re hoping that inductee ceremonies like this can inspire our current students.” Dr. John Andersen, who

graduated from CCHS in 1991, said that it is vital to have an environment where it’s safe to fail in high school. “I really feel very honoured and humbled to be recognized alongside the other members of the Wall of Fame,” Andersen said, noting that he learned to change disadvantages into advantages in his life. “Having struggles can help individuals to develop strategies and skills to overcome those struggles.” He said that by senior high school, he had resigned himself to a mediocre performance, until discovering he had dyslexia. He said that it was “mad scientist” Rod Wensley (who is also honoured on the Wall of Fame) who had confidence in him and turned his school years around by giving him new ways of thinking about reading. Andersen went on to earn a Doctor of Medicine from the University of Calgary and practices and

teaches in Edmonton, developing improved assessment methods and treatments for children with cerebral palsy. New inductee Dr. Beth Balshaw advised students to say yes to life-long learning, yes to love and in everything to give thanks and embrace new possibilities. Balshaw, daughter of Camrose Booster founders Bill and Berdie Fowler, graduated from CCHS in 1965. She went on to earn her PhD in Counseling Psychology from the University of Calgary and has had a private practice as a registered psychologist since 1993. “It’s with great humility and a considerable dose of discomfort that I accept this honour,” Balshaw said. “I didn’t get here by myself.” She said that she graduated at a time when women weren’t expected to further their education, but her mother quietly modelled that women have gifts as well. She said that while she has

thoroughly enjoyed being a psychologist, her most important career has been being a mother of three and now a grandmother of eight. Inductee Ma x Lindstrand, who retired as principal from CCHS in 2008 after 21 years in that position, said that he tried to hire the best staff he could, give them the resources they needed and get out of their way, praising their successes. “I believed that we needed to respect and value everyone,” Lindstrand said. Lindstrand began his teaching career in Hay Lakes, transferring to New Norway as teacher and viceprincipal before working at CCHS. He suggested that students choose work they can be passionate about and then find a job they enjoy, as well as taking the time to travel and see the world. “I’m grateful for all of the blessings and opportunities that God has provided me with,” Lindstrand said, add-

ing that he accepts the award with humility and gratitude. Inductee Dan Olofson was in the first graduating class from CCHS and said that he appreciates being named to the Wall of Fame. He advised students to not be afraid to fail and to join clubs in their community. “Be respectful of your fellow students, they will be your fellow students for life,” Olofson advised the students attending the event. Olofson was the president of the committee that restored and reopened the Bailey Theatre, and said that it was done in large part to a considerable donation from an old high school friend. Olofson is also a founding member of Xtatix, the first rock and roll band in Camrose, which still performs today. He is the owner of Duff Layton’s Men’s Wear and has served as president of City Centre Camrose and chair of Main Street Camrose.

The Augustana Vikings women’s basketball team defeated the NAIT Ooks 75-61 and 64-55 to remain undefeated in eight league games on Nov. 14 and 16. The Vikings made a statement early in the Thursday game as they built up a 20-13 lead in the first quarter and they didn’t look back. Taryn Story led the offence with 19 points and Kari Kubinec chipped in with 17. NAIT put up a fight in the rematch and held the Vikings to only 64 points. This time it was Kelsey Lund’s turn to take over the offence and she responded with 19 points. Sydney Purdy played a tough game to score 12 points in support. On the men’s side, the Ooks turned up the heat in the final quarter to earn a 77-68 victory over Augustana on Nov. 14. Three players collected 14 points as the offence was spread around. Lee Danderfer, Josh Nicol and Joey Schwartz all shared the lead in points. NAIT dominated in the second half to claim the two points in the second meeting of the two clubs. The Ooks grabbed an 80-63 decision to sweep the weekend series. Tony Nguyen stepped up with 14 points and Danderfer added 12 in a game in which Augustana struggled to get the offence going as the game went on. The Vikings dropped to 3-5 on the season. The basketball teams travel to Fort McMurray to take on the Keyano Huskies on Nov. 29 and 30. Augustana will be hosting the Montana State Northern women’s and men’s teams in an exhibition series on Dec. 6 and 7. The women’s action starts at 6 p.m. and the men play at 8 p.m. on both nights.

Augustana students fight against breast cancer By Katy Hotchkiss, Augustana Athletics

Throughout the month of October and the first weekend of November the Augustana Vikings collected bras and donations to raise awareness for breast cancer. The initiative, led by Vikings Athletes, with the outstanding community partnership of Kim Turre and Bra Necessities, the final tally of bras came to 667 and monetary donations totaled more than $3,200. While the Vikings efforts raised bras and money for related charities, the Vikings’ participation also paid tribute to special family members affected by breast cancer, prompting Vikings men’s hockey player Darryl Gagnon to take on a leadership role with the effort. “I wanted to be involved with the hope of preventing other families from going through loss like my family did when my aunt Shannon passed away,” said Gagnon. “Augustana is a close-knit community and I am thankful to all my friends and family who helped us raise funds for a cause that is very important to my family. I am very happy with how much we raised and campus and the community at large should be proud of themselves for all their hard work.”

Murray Green, Camrose Booster The Augustana Vikings women’s volleyball team held a bake sale to raise funds for breast cancer research. From left to right, Stefanie Zahara, Alana Fahlman, Jenn Laskosy, Laura Kvemshagen, Kristy Wade and in front in trainer Johanna MyKyte.

The campaign kicked off with a bake sale, raising $679, put on by the women’s volleyball team on Oct. 21, followed up by the Augustana Students Association with Pink Day on Oct. 23. Bras were then collected at the women’s volleyball game against Olds

on Oct. 25 and the first ever Augustana Vikings Bra Toss at the end of the men’s hockey game against Grant MacEwan on Oct. 26. Men’s hockey raised $1,080 by collecting $1 per shot pledges from generous supporters. The events concluded with Bras Around the Lake on Oct. 28 and

with a silent auction and the Bra Necessities draw at the men’s and women’s basketball home opener on Nov. 2. The student athlete committee would like to thank Bra Necessities, SportFactor, the community and Vikes nation for their donations and par-

ticipation in Breast Caner Awareness Month at Augustana. Bra Necessities matched each bra donated up to Oct. 26 with a total donation of $666 to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. All bras donated will be shipped to The Bra Recyclers.

Players and students cleaned up after the bra toss at EnCana Arena Oct. 26.

The Augustana Vikings hockey team was forced to play an overtime period against Portage but the extra minutes didn’t solve the 3-3 deadlock in Lac La Biche on Nov. 15. The Voyageurs led 1-0 after 20 minutes and added to the total early in the middle frame. Konrad Litke netted his third of the season less than a minute later to cut the Portage lead in half at 2-1. Darryl Gagnon, who assisted on the first Vikings tally, netted his first of the year three minutes later to knot the game at 2-2. Matt Foster scored midway through the third to put the Vikings up before Portage garnered the equalizer. Goalie Joel Danyluk stopped 27 of 30 shots, while Augustana fired 31 at the Portage net. The return match in Camrose was cancelled due to the bad weather conditions on Nov. 16.

Augustana closes out the first half with a series against Red Deer. The home game is on Nov. 29 beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the EnCana Arena. The game will feature the annual Teddy Bear Toss for the Kinette Club of Camrose Silent Santa program. Spectators are encouraged to bring stuffed animals to throw onto the ice immediately after the Vikings score their first goal. Items that shouldn’t be thrown onto the ice can be left at the entrance table for pickup. The Augustana Student’s Association will be holding a benefit road hockey game that begins at 7 p.m. on Dec. 4 in the Edgeworth Centre parking lot. Entry is free to the public and there will be hot chocolate available for a donation. All proceeds will go to KidSport Camrose. The match will have two 25-minute periods.

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.

Two overtime games move Kodiaks up in the AJHL standings

By Murray Green

The Camrose Kodiaks earned five out of six points in their last three games to move up in the Alberta Junior Hockey League standings. Camrose beat the Calgary Canucks 4-3 in overtime when Brett Njaa notched the game winner just 48 seconds into the extra frame on Nov. 17. Each team scored a goal in every period in the close contest. Braeden Salverda started the scoring in the first period, but the Canucks tied it up five minutes later. Both squads notched a power play marker in the second, with Nelson Gadoury counting for the Kodiaks. In the third, Luc Vandale scored 26 seconds after Calgary went ahead. Goalie Matt Zentner stopped 28 of the 31 shots sent in his direction. After two scoreless periods, Brooks pulled ahead on the power play, only to have Scott Ferguson garner the equalizer and force overtime. This time Brooks scored 48 seconds into the extra frame to win 2-1. Devin McDonald stopped 29 of 31 shots in the Camrose net, while the Kodiaks fired 30 at the Bandits’ net. In the battle of the bears, the Kodiaks beat the Olds Grizzlys 4-3 on Nov. 14. Salverda netted the first two goals for Camrose in the first period. Olds cut the lead in half, but Ferguson scored 13 seconds later and Jody Sick added another marker a minute later to stun the Grizzlys. However, later in the period Olds once again cut the lead in half. The Grizzlys scored in the third, but the Kodiaks shut down the visitors from that point on. McDonald made 25 saves on 28 shots in the Camrose net, while the Kodiaks fired 32 at the Olds cage. Camrose hosts the Lloydminster Bobcats on Nov. 30 and the Calgary Mustangs on Dec. 6. Both games start at 7 p.m. Remember to bring a stuffed bear for the 14th annual Teddy Bear Toss against the Mustangs. The animals or toys donated at the hockey game will go to less fortunate children in

Camrose and the surrounding area. “Thank you for your support over the years as with your help of bringing a toy to the game. You have just made Christmas brighter for someone,” said Kodiaks general manager and coach Boris Rybalka. “Let’s fill the ice with toys when the Kodiaks score their first goal.” The Kodiaks helped children read over the last few weeks. “We thank the schools in Camrose and area for participating in our reading program over the past 14 years. The Kodiaks take pride in their education. Every one of the players must go to school and graduate. If our players have unexcused absences from school, they are unable to play the game on the ice,” said coach Boris. “The Kodiaks encourage all students to work hard at school and to take the initiative to read for knowledge and entertainment. Once again this year we have had a fabulous response to our Read to Succeed program. Over 650 students participated this year and read books during the month of October. Every student who participated is receiving a new book from the Kodiaks, and many students will receive special prizes that were drawn for from the children that read.” Kroeger Joyce in Camrose also held a successful charity game last month. “With 1,500 fans in attendance, thousands of dollars were raised during this annual game. The Kodiak organization appreciated everyone who supported this game and bid on the jerseys and all of the other auction items,” added Boris. “The money raised during this game allows the Kodiaks to continue to support all of the local charities that they do.” The Kodiaks believe in the community and the players love giving back to Camrose and area in any way that they can. “From hospital visits to Silent Santa and all of the charities that are donated to, we salute the fans who support us so that we may give back to our community,” said Boris.
