The Old Man (Trevor McTavish) opens his “Major Award” from the $50,000 giant jackpot prize contest. Mom (Rayna Benke) is left a little disappointed as Ralphie (Davis Dewalt) and Randy (Dakota Ekelund) admire the “Major Award.” Inset picture is of Ralphie (Logan Hicks) in Aunt Clara’s bunny pajamas. All children were double cast; Davis and Logan are sharing the character Ralphie.

Kyler was congratulated by former Toronto Blue Jays player Jesse Barfield, who was a Blue Jays player from 1981-89. He also played for New York Yankees. Jesse was the keynote speaker of the evening. At the western championships Kyler's team lost the bronze game, but he received the top hitter award for the tournament posting a .588 batting average with two home runs, one of which was a grand slam.

Council denies Bailey request By Dan Jensen

Camrose City council has denied a Bailey Theatre Society request for a one-time grant of $250,000 and a yearly operating grant of $150,000. The request was bantered around at length during a Nov. 26 special meeting at City Hall in which the mayor and councillors stated repeatedly their opposition of channeling more money into a private society. The City of Camrose has already given $1,000,000 to the Bailey Theatre Society with the proviso that the Society not ask for operating funds. Mayor Marshall Chalmers said City council has already made the decision that the Camrose Performing Arts Centre is going to be the community facility. "We have already gone through the process of how much we are going to contribute on an annual basis knowing that at any one time there is always that chance there could be more." Councillor John Howard, while he would like to see the Bailey Theatre Society succeed, he cannot continue to justify handing money to a private society over which the taxpayers' representatives have no voice. He added the society has not presented council with a detailed business plan in spite of repeated requests. "We have seen some numbers speculating what the future might be and to go from $240 one year to $250,000 the next year in fundraising â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I would just like to see how that is going to work." Councillor Greg Wood said council will have to have a discussion in the future to determine the proper balance between what it puts into recreation and what it puts into the arts. He noted the City of Camrose is currently spending almost $2 million on recreation and parks, and will be increasing that when the performing arts centre comes on stream. "We are accused at times of not putting money into culture but we are heavily invested." Councillor Max Lindstrand said the formation of a Camrose arts authority is the way the City needs to go. "We can't cover our eyes and say the Bailey doesn't exist. It is there and it is a very fine facility and it certainly has to in some way fit into our future, into the equation. If we are running the Chuck MacLean Arts Centre and the CPAC and the Bailey Theatre there has to be efficiencies in having a common authority governing those facilities." Councillor Lindstrand said council has to bear in mind that everything it does has a cost. "The City is in the business of providing services for people and everything costs money. I mean, are we prepared to continue to pay $500,000 or $600,000 in net cost to the swimming pool? Are we prepared to continue to pay a million dollars in net costs to run the three ice surfaces in town? These are the arguments that the arts folks are going to raise with us. Why are you prepared to provide for those net costs and yet you are not prepared to support us in our endeavours with regard to the arts?" Continued on page 16

Santa Claus stopped at the Duggan Mall during Midnight Madness to pick up Christmas lists from children in the Camrose area on Nov. 30. Jayden Kowal, left, and friend Paulina Velazquez explained to Santa that they were good this year. The jolly fellow vowed to be back in Camrose on Christmas Day.

Council receives update on new City Hall By Dan Jensen

Camrose City council has given the green light to the City manager to proceed, when he is ready, with the tendering of the City Hall project. "There could be some danger in not moving ahead because of the timelines of getting the tender and documents out there," said City councillor Max Lindstrand at a special council meeting Nov. 26. The current budget for the new City Hall is $16 million. "Sixteen million is felt to be a reasonable figure but the estimate does have some fluctuation in terms of what we might see at this point," said City manager Damian Herle. "That could be $15.2 million up to $17.6 million." The City Hall would be funded with $15 million from the provincial government's Municipal Sustainability Initiative (MSI) program, and $1 million from City reserves. Herle told council there is still work to do by City administration to refine drawings and plans to make sure they are complete before the call for tenders is issued.

"The more work we do upfront in making sure they are ready to go the better our tender amounts will be in terms of accuracy." Under the current timeline the City plans to close tenders in January 2013 and award the construction contract in February or March. The construction of the new building is expected to take place from June, 2013 to December 2014, with the move in of City staff scheduled for January, 2015. City staff would move out of the existing building in April and May of 2013. "We are working on tentative plans in terms of relocating the City Hall staff to Mirror Lake Centre," said Herle. "Most of the staff would be on the main floor of Mirror Lake Centre." City council will not be obligated to issue a contract to any of the contractors that submit a tender. Jocelyn Kew, from Kew Illustrations Ltd., the project management firm, told council January will be a good time to put the City Hall out for bids. "It is very competitive right now. A lot of oilsands projects are

on hold for various reasons so the contractors are eager. They will come back from Christmas break, hopefully be able to look at the package, give it attention and bid accordingly." The new City Hall would be built to accommodate up to 90 staff in ten to twenty years' time, up from the 58 staff at present. Three of the four floors would be occupied right away. "We estimate that we will be fully occupying the three floors in ten years," said City general manager of engineering services Kriss Sarson. "At that time we would look at finishing the fourth floor." Updated plans for the new City Hall include underground parking for 27 vehicles, as well as 20 parking stalls on grade and 57 stalls across the street that would be leased from the provincial government. Vivian Manasc, from Manasc Isaac Architects, told council that underground parking was determined to be less costly and more environmentally friendly than buying additional land to accommodate all the vehicles. "Keeping cars underground is considered to be a

green building strategy. In the LEED rating system you get more points for putting cars underground for two reasons. One is that you waste less land and the other is that you tend to have less people idling cars, preheating cars and running car warmers." Manasc said the newer mechanical systems and technologies that will be used in the new building will result in operating costs of approximately $8 per square foot, down from the $12 to $15 per square foot cost in the current City Hall. "Even though we aren't doing any direct energy generation on the site we are doing a lot of heat recovery. One of the advantages that has been created by the underground parking is that we have more places to pump our waste to, so heat used in other parts of the building can go down and keep the cars from freezing." Herle said there are costs associated with not doing anything at all, as both the current City Hall and the Mirror Lake Centre are in need of upgrades. "As council is aware, we have an ongoing occupational

health and safety issue with this building. Now that it is a legislated matter in terms of ensuring safety under the occupational health and safety regulations, and that is specifically the identification of black mould, the City is continuing to take steps as part of that process. We undergo regular air quality testing and that air quality testing has a cost involved of itself." Herle added there are ten furnaces downtstairs in the City Hall that were due for replacement ten years ago. The provincial government has indicated that it is willing to lease three lots across the street for parking at current market rates. The City of Camrose is currently leasing a lot for parking at a cost of $2,800 per year. Manasc replied to concerns about the high water table and the risk of flooding in the underground parking area by noting that the plan is to install waterproofing around the perimeter of the building. She said the contractor will be instructed to be careful during construction so as not to exacerbate the problem. Continued on page 32

PEN POINTS by Berdie Fowler

About the Bailey Theatre What is going to happen to the Bailey? That question has been reverberating around the community since last week’s Camrose City Council meeting in which the Bailey Theatre Society’s request for funding was turned down. To me, that doesn’t mean the demise of the Bailey; it simply means that another source of funding has to be tapped, albeit with haste if closing the doors is to be avoided. Although the council turned down the request for a onetime grant of $250,000 and annual operating grant of $150,000, it was obvious that it was not a hostile refusal. As individuals, the mayor and councillors personally hoped the Bailey would survive. Many in the community had similar hopes and at least one councillor said of the calls he had received from citizens, as many urged acceptance of the Bailey request as opposed it. Council turned down the request because it would be inappropriate to use public money to support a private society’s enterprise without having a voice in its operation; in addition, the City had earlier provided $1 million for capital costs with the proviso that there would be no further input for operational expense. With supportive attitude, Council also discussed exploring a possible resolution by establishing a common arts authority that would include the Chuck MacLean Arts Centre, the Performing Arts Centre and the Bailey Theatre. That would require some reorganization of the Bailey Theatre Society but would give the City a voice in the Theatre affairs. Council also suggested that the Bailey Theatre Society conduct fund-raising campaigns as other organizations do with success. Theatres, arenas, universities, hospitals, libraries and the like are not self-supporting. Evidence is their walls featuring names of donors who help to establish and sustain the operations – from the Winspeare Theatre in Edmonton to St. Mary’s Hospital in Camrose. The philanthropists give with no expectation of personal gain. In years and months before the Bailey was actually refurbished, I attended meetings where Camrose citizens urged, with great passion, restoration of the Bailey Theatre because of its historical significance, because it would enhance activity in downtown Camrose, and provide a venue for performers. Some of those persons have put sweat equity into the project thus far and perhaps monetary contributions as well – we don’t know. We do know that some $8 million in funding to date has come from two former Camrose residents plus federal, provincial and municipal sources. We now have in service a restored historic site; it would be shameful and embarrassing for the whole community if it failed after such significant investment. How can we save the Bailey? It is asking for a one-time grant of $250,000 and an annual grant of $150,000. That would require 250 people in the community to donate $1,000 each (some more, some less), and 150 local citizens who would give $1,000 each on an annual basis. That would cover the amount requested and, I believe, is not out of reach. Would people give? They would IF the fear of failure was alleviated – by including the Bailey under the wing of a common arts authority, as already suggested by council, or some other long-term arrangement to sustain it. As well, prospective donors must be asked to give as other organizations have done successfully with regular fund-raising campaigns. Surely giving up is not an option now because the reality is that a restored Bailey is actually here and in service. We have a choice.

After publishing my last letter I was told that writing an atheistic pro-life argument was not the best idea in the world. In my defense I can only say that Mr. Baker asked for such an argument and I thought I should oblige him. I did, however, take pains to show that if we begin from an atheistic belief system there is no foundation for moral arguments. Clearly that wasn’t expressed well and, since it is what drove me into the Christian church, I will expand upon it. According to atheism the world and everything in it is the result of physical causes over time. The ‘Big Bang’ started things off and, after several billion years, physics and chemistry produced animate matter. Time and physics do not have moral content. Moral content is not a physical property and time merely measures duration. The same applies to reason, truth, and choice. Our ability to reason, to discover truth, to choose how we act, and to assign a moral value to those actions all ‘transcend’ the dimensions of physics and time. For this reason, they are called ‘transcendental properties.’ This is not a new idea. Darwin, the man who “made it possible to be an intellectually fulfilled atheist” knew this. In a letter to William Graham he wrote, "With me the horrid doubt always arises

whether the convictions of man's mind, which has been developed from the mind of the lower animals, are of any value or at all trustworthy." And biochemist J. B. S. Haldane noted, "If my mental processes are determined wholly by the motions of [physical materials] in my brain, I have no reason to suppose that my beliefs are true ... and hence I have no reason for supposing my brain to be composed of [physical materials]." Yet, we think and act as moral free agents. Even the atheist reasons from ideas and experience to moral conclusions which they believe are true. But if atheism is true then those thoughts and their conclusions are an illusion, a ghost in the machine. If atheism is true then the sum of human experience is false. "Men despise religion. They hate it and are afraid it may be true. The cure for this is first to show that religion is not contrary to reason, but worthy of reverence and respect. Next make it attractive, make good men wish it were true, and then show that it is." Blaise Pascal Many atheists use the word “reason” in the same way the superstitious use magic charms; to keep them safe from things they do not understand. Few perform the act of reasoning. If they did, they would see the folly of their way and be forced to admit, “There are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamed of in your philosophy, Horatio.” Dave Gosse, Camrose The Alberta debt

I would like to remind everybody once again that I am no expert in politics. I am simply an Albertan with an opinion. This letter is going to address the area of debt. Premier Redford made a statement justifying putting more debt onto Alberta's plate and the finance minster, Doug Horner, made a very interesting

comparison in one of his statements. Premier Redford stated in one of her statements, "If everything we do right now is fully funded with cash in the bank, then we are never going to build anything more in this province." In addition to her comment, the finance minister, Doug Horner compared the government going into debt with a couple taking out a mortgage on a home. First of all, most of us Canadians are too far into debt. The Bank of Canada has stated that fact. It is my opinion that it is common sense that though roads, bridges and hospitals are very important, they are considered a depreciating asset and they do put taxpayers solely at risk if something goes wrong. On the other hand, a home which a couple buys with a mortgage is an appreciating asset which is regularly sold and even if things do go bad, the taxpayers are not on the hook for it. Now, our wonderful MLA, Verlyn Olson was elected by the majority of this area to serve their interests. I am sure that many of you are confident that he does have your interest in mind as he works very hard day by day. Keeping that in mind, I would like to encourage him to ask his boss, Ms. Redford to explain the main reason why she is pushing this province into debt? Is this in the interest of all of present and future Albertans? As I have stated in my last letter, that we as Albertans better stand up and say something. Evil does prevail when good men and women do nothing. Our MLAs are elected to look after the taxpayers' interests and not the interests of their own party. They are totally accountable to the people who voted them in. This is something for all of you to think about. Lorne W.P. Vanderwoude Camrose

Al Lehmann loved his prized car – a 1992 Cougar XR7 collector’s series edition. However, he also felt it was time to sell the vehicle. He began advertisingg the rint vehicle – first in another Camrose print s. publication, then on Kijiji classifieds. No interest was shown, not a single call. Al noticed the Camrose Booster three-week special – pay for two weeks, get three weeks of advertising. Within three days of the first Booster ad published, the Cougar was sold to an individual living near Gwynne. “I always enjoy The Booster. Whenever I’ve advertised anything the ad has worked. Personally, I’d much rather hold the paper and read advertising than read ads on a computer screen,” noted Al. Need to sell something? Count on The Camrose Booster to get the job done!

City council denies Bailey Theatre request Continued from page 6

Councillor Daryl Shillington said he can see himself supporting some kind of operating grant for the Bailey, but that grant would have to come with a lot of attachments to it in terms of how the Bailey is structured and how the City of Camrose can be involved. He added he would like to have discussions with the society to obtain its views on a cultural authority and the synergies it could work out with the performing arts centre. "I would like to see it succeed and I think a lot of donors would like to see it succeed." Councillor Earle Berry questioned what council could do over the last five or six months of 2013 to get the Bailey to the stage where it will be able to start looking at ways it can share costs with the performing arts centre and the Chuck MacLean Arts Centre. "Obviously they have a manager and all the technicians over there, and CPAC isn't going to need them for another 12 months or thereabouts, but if we could get them closer to that maybe that is something that has worth to all three." Council had mixed reactions to the request from the Bailey Theatre Society to have the next meeting in camera. "I think it is a great idea to have a meeting," said councillor Blatz. "I am really not keen on the idea of trying our best to make it an in camera meeting. Ultimately the money that is going to be spent is taxpayer money and it just doesn't look good. I am not comfortable sitting behind closed doors with the committee because that is the way they want it." Councillor Howard argued the relationship city council has with the Bailey would have to be reviewed before any decision is made to provide future operating dollars. "I think we have to come to a point where we recognize that if a group of private citizens wants to entertain a business more power to them," said Howard, "but we don't fund it and we specifically don't fund the operation of it." Councillor Galenza said he has received some serious criticisms from residents saying that it should not be supporting a private operation. He also stressed the importance of making a decision quickly in order to finalize what is going to be a tough budget. "We have been elected to make decisions. A lot of them are going to be unpopular. Certainly, from my emails and things I have, as many people are for it as against it." Mayor Chalmers and a few other members of council questioned the amount of fund-raising the Bailey Theatre Society has been doing to date in relation to other societies that are trying to keep their operations afloat. "These (other) people are out there trying to make this go and I just don't see that from the Bailey right now. We have heard how they have talked to other people but I just don't see the effort."

Special concert at Fridhem Dec. 9 By Dan Jensen

FULL GOSPEL BUSINESSMEN’S FELLOWSHIP INTERNATIONAL CAMROSE CHAPTER

CHRISTMAS PRAISE BANQUET with

SUSAN & TAMMY FRIDAY, DEC. 14, 2012

There's always something special about a concert in a country church. Especially when that concert is in a church as historically significant as Fridhem Baptist. Concert in a Country Church, featuring the sounds of the Augustana choir and Manskor – Augustana's men's choir – will be held at Fridhem Baptist Church this Sunday, starting at 7 p.m. Those attending are encouraged to bring coffee and seasonal cookies, cakes and fruits for Duket Bord. Fridhem is a sacred site dating back to the late 1800s when Swedish settlers arrived south of already existing Duhamel (also known as Laboucane Métis Settlement) on the Battle River in what was then the North-

west Territories. At the time, Wetaskiwin was the regional centre for trade and the arrival of new people who were coming to farm in the surrounding areas. At first the new settlers gathered in homes for worship. Due to hardship and epidemic, several newcomers died in the early days, resulting in the creation of Fridhem Cemetery as one of the earliest ecumenical burial places in the area. Although the present church was built in 1926, the broader geographical reach of the early settlers is an important part of the overall history. In the summer of July, 2000, the 100th anniversary of the worship community was honoured with a guided tour of the places where the early settlers had lived. Since the formation of the Friends of Fridhem Soci-

ety in 1992, focus has been on identifying and protecting the flora and fauna of the site, and on maintaining and restoring the church. Alberta Historical Resources, Camrose County Municipal Historic Resources and many volunteers have helped secure and interpret this important historical site for future generations. Fridhem Church may be found by travelling 30 minutes south of Camrose on Highway 21 to Ferintosh. At gravel pit corner turn east. You will find the church 3.5 miles down Range Road 440 on the south side of the road. The concert is being jointly sponsored by the Friends of Fridhem Society, St. Thomas Catholic Church Duhamel, and the Association for Life-wide Living (ALL) of Alberta.

Camrose Public Library supporting the What did you read today? campaign By Dan Jensen

Camrose Public Library is encouraging residents to get involved in the "What did you read today?" campaign. "What did you read today?" was created by the National Reading Campaign, an unprecedented coalition of librarians, educators, booksellers, publishers, readers and writers to help make reading a national priority and bring the joy of reading to Canadians. The campaign includes a pair of fun contests, one for the general public and one for kids.

Both contests run until Dec. 31, and are open to Canadian residents only. The contest for the general public asks Canadians to tweet what they are reading @readingcampaign with #whatdidy ouread today for the chance to win one of ten Kobo eReaders pre-loaded with a selection of great eBooks. "Entrants can share a title, author or even type of reading material that they're reading, like a magazine or graphic novel, because all reading matters,"

said Camrose Public Library programmer Nicole Bannick. As an added bonus, Kobo will donate $1 to the National Reading Campaign for every contest entry tweet that is received, up to $10,000, to help grow reading in Canada. The contest for kids gives public libraries and schools the chance to win $1,000 in new books. "We've designed a simple "What did you read today?" contest kit that allows public librarians and teachers to create a vibrant wall or space where read-

ers can post what they're reading, promoting discussions about reading in many forms," said Bannick. The National Reading Campaign website describes reading as the simple, accessible, ordinary yet extraordinary thing we do that makes us, and every day, better. "Just by opening a book, a blog or whatever you choose, you open yourself up to new ideas, cultures and perspectives," states the site. "And in a global economy where knowledge is power, reading is the turbine. That’s why when Canada reads,

Canada grows. As citizens, reading helps us understand and act with full confidence on crucial issues. But new technologies and media choices, lifestyle changes, unprecedented competition for our leisure time and much more have changed Canadians’ reading habits, and not for the better. Most disturbing of all, fewer and fewer children are reporting that they enjoy reading. Curiosity, imagination, and all the other vital things that reading sparks – and our future needs – are at risk."

Monday, Dec. 10, 2012 7:30 p.m. CCHS East Gym SILVER COLLECTION AT THE DOOR

The first time country music performer Jimmy Rankin played in Camrose, it was on a family trip. You might remember Jimmy stepping on stage in the Rose City in 1997 with the Rankin Family on the main stage at the Big Valley Jamboree. The Rankin Family warmed up the crowd with eastern Canadian country music prior to Tim McGraw's performance. Jimmy has come a long way since then. This time, the performer will be appearing at Scalliwags Pub and Rum Bar on Saturday, Dec. 8 at 8 p.m. Jimmy's debut solo album Song Dog, came out in 2001 with the majority of Canadians already knowing his name. The Rankin Family Band from Mabou, Cape Breton, had great success with 15 East Coast Music Awards, six Junos, three Canadian Country Music Awards from five albums over nine years. Song Dog was an instant success and earning him a Juno for best roots artist. In 2011, Jimmy released his fourth solo recording, called Forget About the World. Another former BVJ artist, Keith Urban, plays on a couple of tracks.

BVJ adds more acts By Murray Green

[Hypnotist Extraordinaire] ‘The most original, most charismatic. Best hypnotist in the world.”

With the headliners in place for the Big Valley Jamboree in Camrose from August 1 to 4, Panhandle Productions added some depth to the line-up. Alan Jackson, Luke Bryan and Lady Antebellum are already scheduled to close out the main stage from Friday to Sunday. Headlining the kick-off party will be Neal McCoy, no stranger to Camrose music fans. Neal has sold over six million albums and worked with BVJ alumni Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert on his newest album. Rodney Atkins has come a long way since his 2003 debut Honesty. His high energy and good lyrics have helped him sell over four million singles in just five years. Rodney's latest hit “Take a Back Road” is adding new fans each day. Big and Rich is made up of two artists who push the boundaries of their music, while having a lot of fun. After vaulting onto the country scene in 2004, Big and Rich have been selling out stadiums. For the second time in eight years, Big and Rich will perform at the Big Valley Jamboree. Aaron Lines is back for his third performance at BVJ. The Alberta performer sang at the 2004 and 2007 concerts. The Abrams Brothers, Alberta’s Bobby Wills and Small Town Pistols were also added to the outdoor show.

Fire safety tips to keep in mind this Christmas Royal Bank of Canada

While the incidence of fire increases during the holiday season due to greater use of natural Christmas trees, decorations and electric lighting, Canadians are taking further risks as more than 29 per cent of homeowners admit they don't have a fire extinguisher in their home, according to an RBC Insurance survey.

"Between shopping for gifts and attending holiday parties, the last thing you want to worry about is your house being damaged by a fire," explains Tim Bzowey, vice president, Home & Auto, RBC Insurance. "Luckily there are some precautionary measures you can take to help keep your family safe this holiday season."

Keep your tree securely tethered and away from any and all heat sources. This includes electrical outlets, space heaters, radiators and fireplaces. Do not leave Christmas lights on all night. Unplug the tree lights and any other lighting before leaving your home or going to bed. The lights could short out and start a fire.

Choose decorations that are flame-retardant, non-combustible and non-conductive. For example, do not use metallic ornaments on the tree, as they could make contact with defective wiring and become a shock hazard. Closely monitor flame burning candles. Avoid using candles on windowsills; particularly

those that have curtains, as even the smallest drafts are capable of spreading a flame. Make sure fireplaces and chimneys are properly cleaned and maintained. Have a professional inspect your fireplace annually for any cracks and always use a screen in front of your fireplace while it is burning.

Gloria is being polite Give a good book this year

S

he really didn’t care for the flowers her daughter Kyla sent on her birthday. But Gloria didn’t say anything. She was being polite. Now Gloria hopes Kyla doesn’t use the same website to order at Christmas time. Maybe she should drop a hint. Maybe suggest Kyla calls Carol. You see, Kyla used a website that pretends they are florists when, in fact, they just gather and process orders. Carol is a real florist who cares about her customers. She gives personal attention to wire orders. She speaks the language of florists. The order isn’t lost in translation.

CAMROSE & DAYSLAND

In loving memory of

George Henry Hooper George Hooper was born in Shoal Lake, Manitoba on April 10, 1930 to Leonard and Esther Hooper. The family later moved to Beechy, Saskatchewan where he completed his schooling. Following Grade 12, it was off to Saskatoon to the University of Saskatchewan to complete his Education Degree. His first teaching job was in a rural one-room school outside of Regina, Saskatchewan. A year later, he arrived in Bawlf where he fine-tuned his teaching skills for 36 years. He met his future wife at Bawlf School – the tall blonde Grade 5 teacher, Miss Midbo. They were married on August 2, 1955, and were blessed with three daughters which completed their family – Joan, Shelley and Jackie. George taught in Bawlf for 36 years and then retired at the age of 55. After one year of leisure, it was back to teaching. He taught at Augustana’s Centre for Community Education for another 12 years. George was a member of several service clubs including the Bawlf Legion of which he was a life member. He was an active member of the Bawlf Lions in the club’s early years. When they moved to Camrose, he became involved with Camrose Senior Centre, Camrose Bridge Club and Camrose Crib Club. George was active in these clubs until his passing. George enjoyed life and spending time with people. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. George passed away on Tuesday, November 20, 2012 at the age of 82. George will be sadly missed by his three daughters Joan (Don) Lindberg, Shelley (Brian) Reich and Jackie (Dale) Johnson; three grandchildren Kelly and Steven Lindberg, and Taylor Johnson; one sister Jean Mountain of Regina; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and a host of friends. George was predeceased by his wife Myrtle, his parents Leonard and Esther Hooper and brother-in-law Joe Mountain. A funeral service was held on Tuesday, November 27, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. from Camrose United Church with Rev. Brian Hunter officiating. Inurnment has taken place in Valleyview Cemetery, Camrose. Memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to the Alberta Cancer Foundation. To send condolences, please visit www.burgarfuneralhome.com.

Joelle Amanda Haugen Roger Lang Roger Lang of Kingman, Alberta passed away on Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at the age of 85 years. Left to cherish his memory are his daughter Judith and son-in-law Allan Van of Calgary; daughter Roxann Vaos of Edmonton; two grandchildren Alexander and Nicholas; and his beloved kid sister Vallain Bennett and her family of Camano Island, Washington. Roger treasured his family, friends and neighbors above all in life. Through his years in the Canadian Air Force and later working in the automobile industry, he made countless friends. As an adventurer and man with an insatiable curiosity, Roger flew light one-man aircraft, was an accomplished photographer and could fix any machine or engine that came his way. He embraced emerging technologies and was a self-taught computer whiz. As a veteran, he never missed a veterans’ memorial and served as Historian for the FSNA, the largest advocacy group promoting the interest of retired federal employees and service personnel in Canada. He felt this was important work and deeply admired the membership and contributions made by fellow members across the country. A private memorial service will be held at a later date. Those wishing to be advised of details are asked to contact Roxann at rxnvaos@gmail.com. The family would also like to extend their gratitude to the staff of the emergency department and palliative care ward at Grey Nuns Hospital in Edmonton for their tender care and compassion in the last hours of Roger’s life.

December 1977 – December 2005 A limb has fallen from the family tree. I keep hearing a voice that says, “Grieve not for me. Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.

Remembering all, how I truly was blessed. Continue traditions, no matter how small. Go on with your life, don’t worry about falls. I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.

Cargill happy with feedback at open house By Dan Jensen

Cargill Limited was happy with the feedback that was provided on its proposed oilseed crush plant during a community open house at the Edgeworth Centre Nov. 28. "In both the county and the city we have been extremely pleased with how engaged the residents have been," said Jennifer Shomenta, general manager of soft seed processing canola. "We have really enjoyed engaging in the process with them." Shomenta said the concerns expressed regarding the proposed facility have differed according to where the people live. "The folks that live immediately around the proposed site have a different set of concerns than some of the city residents who have been here tonight." Shomenta said one of the primary issues with city residents is the water that the proposed facility will be requiring. "They want to know how much we are going to be taking and they want to know where the storm water runoff is going to be going." Cargill fielded a number of questions at the open houses regarding rail access and at grade crossings. New rail spurs would connect the proposed plant to both the CN rail line to the southwest and the CP

City of Camrose acting director of planning and development Shelley Munro and City councillor Daryl Shillington talk to Doug Collision, vice president of Cargill's oilseeds crush division.

rail line to the north across Highway 13. A rail yard capable of storing 500 to 600 rail cars would be constructed west and north of the plant. "With the rail crossings, safety is our number one concern," said Shomenta. "We have

been working with Alberta Transportation, the City and the County on that to make sure we have an adequate plan there that is going to work as residents go down Highway 13." Cargill is expecting that about 800 super-B trucks will

be arriving at the proposed facility every day. "One hundred per cent of the canola that will be coming to us will be coming via trucks from the area so we want to make sure that road access, road infrastructure and inter-

sections adjacent to the plant are adequate and are providing safe availability," said Shomenta. Cargill submitted a revised area structure plan to Camrose County council Nov. 27 in response to comments of area residents that are expected to minimize traffic. "The residents had concerns about passenger vehicles relative to the trucks on the Dried Meat Lake road so we submitted a proposal to build a frontage road that comes right off Highway 13 at the intersection of the Dried Meat Lake road," said Shomenta. "The trucks would head back west and then south on Cargill's own land." The proposed plant would have the capacity to process 3,500 tonnes per day of canola seed. The initial crush volume is expected to be approximately 850,000 tonnes. The finished products will include approximately 1,500 tonnes per day of food grade canola oil and 2,000 tonnes per day of canola meal animal feed. Environmental control systems are an integral part of the plant's design to minimize air emissions, odour, waste and dusts. Cargill's goal is to start construction of the plant in the spring of 2013 and start accepting canola from harvest in 2014.

Camrose County clears way for Cargill facility By Murray Green

Camrose County council gave second and third readings on several bylaws to allow Cargill to move to the next phase of building a canola crushing plant east of the city. Council heard several letters of concern about the heavy use of the Dried Meat Lake road for trucking, but the opposition was limited when Cargill explained that they will make the entrance to the site as far north as possible. Cargill agreed they would build an entrance closer to Highway 13 than first proposed. Residents near the proposed site, also questioned Cargill about the noise and odour. Cargill's Doug Collison, vice-president of oilseeds crush division, indicated the plant will do what it can to reduce noise and lighting. Council also received several letters in support of the development and they were read at the public hearing. Council examined the revised area structure plan and passed it. The intention of the developer is to create a plant that will have the capacity to process up to 3,500 tonnes per day of canola seed. The initial annual crush volume is expected to be approximately 850,000 tonnes. The finished products will include approximately 1,000 tonnes per day of food grade canola oil and 1,500 tonnes per day of canola meal animal feed. "Due to the proximity of the city and the necessity for the developer to construct rail lines within the city boundaries, the city has requested that the area

structure plan also address lands that are impacted by the purchase of railway lands," explained county planning manager Anjah Howard, in her report. "Therefore the ASP discusses potential developments within Section 25, Township 46, Range 20, West of the Fourth Meridian in addition

to the plant development on E1/2 24-46-20-W4." Within the County (S1/2 25-46-20-W4) the intent is to leave these lands as agricultural so no rezoning is required. Railways are considered discretionary in agricultural districts. The N1/2 of 25-46-20-W4 is within

the city, so it does not have a significant impact on county planning, since both the long range plans of the city and the ASP show the lands as commercialindustrial, indicated Anjah. The canola crushing plant, which is the major development within the plan, is expected to run year round. It is anticipated that there will be 50 employees on site. About 95 per cent of the canola crushed at the site will be trucked in and it is anticipated that there will be 80 to 100 superB trucks per day, down from the original thought of 135 to 165 super-B trucks hauling canola to the site. However, potential expansion could result in needing 120 to 140 trucks per day. In addition, there will be up to five covered van or truck deliveries weekly and 35 staff or visitor vehicles per day. Vehicle traffic will access the site on Dried Meat Lake Road (Range Road 200) after turning off of Highway 13. A traffic impact assessment and necessary road upgrades will be in place before the site becomes operational. The project location was determined by its proximity to CP and CN rail, but additional rail lines will be required to connect the plant to the two rail lines. The on easements or on lands will be purchased by the applicant. The project will require at least two road crossings, one as an entry and another as an exit. The county was told that most of the canola product will be shipped out by rail and it is expected that up to 340 rail cars

will be able to be stored on site. On average, there will be up to 10 movements per week on each CN and CP spur line. It is proposed that at each of the 10 road crossings, seven would take approximately three minutes and three would take five to eight minutes. The plant will be serviced by the City of Camrose raw water supply and waste water treatment systems. A small amount of potable water will be provided by Camrose County for office use. The E1/2 of 24-46-20-W4 contains approximately 320 acres of land. The plant will cover approximately 30 acres, the storm water management pond(s) another 2.5 acres, the access road 2.5 acres and 17 acres of rail yard and spur lines for a development area of 52 acres or a site coverage of 16 per cent. The remainder of the land will continue to be used for agricultural purposes and could be planted with canola in rotation with other crops. The nearest residence is approximately 500 metres west of the plant and there are 22 rural residences within 1,600 metres. Council passed Bylaw 1255 to change redistrict E1/2 of 24-4620-W4 from A-Agricultural to Rural Industrial District. They discussed Bylaw 1257 to close the road allowance on NE 24-4620-W4 and sent it on to Alberta Transportation for approval. Councillor Brian Austrom said he uses the road with machinery to go to Camrose, as do several farmers in the area, but indicated the pluses of the plant outweigh the inconvenience of taking an alternative route.

CHALLENGE DAY SPONSORS Camrose Composite High School Challenge organizers Todd Markowsky, left, and Joanne Miske, fourth from left, received some help and sponsorships from Shirley Rostad of the Camrose Rotary Club, Cam Gotaas of the Camrose Kodiaks, Jim Geddes of Enerplus, CCHS principal Pat McFeeley, Dallas Bergstrom of the Camrose Kodiaks and Battle River School Division chair Doug Bowie.

Councillor Gerry Galenza questioned whether there was a real need to have all the City staff under one roof, saying there are many examples from other communities where the different municipal departments are split up. "I haven't heard from the public the complaint that they have to go to the Mirror Lake Centre to do business. We are not that big of a city." Manasc said the cost savings of removing the fourth floor from the plans altogether would be fairly nominal. "To eliminate that entirely the savings would probably be in the range of half a million, however to add that back at a later date the cost would be in the range of probably five million. There is a whole order of magnitude difference between how much you would save by not putting it in now and how much it would cost to add it later. One of the strange and curious things about construction costs is that they don't behave in a very linear manner, so two plus two doesn't add up to four." Manasc indicated something will be done between now and construction to address the shape of the council desk after councillors noted that the lack of curvature would not allow them to see each other during discussions. She said the reason for the straight desk design dated back to 2008 when councillors expressed a desire for a more contemporary style that would have them face the public. The council chambers would have a seating capacity of approximately 100. Councillor John Howard said any further questions he has about the new City Hall will be addressed during the tendering process. "The tendering process does not bind council to any commitment and I think that is the critical statement for me. If all of a sudden the tenders come in way higher than what we thought they would, be back to the drawing board. If they come in way less, maybe we will add a fifth or sixth storey. I don't know, we will have to cross that bridge when we get there, but I don't think we are going to be able to answer those questions without the answers that are going to come from the tendering process."

Second Thought By Tim Parker Psychology., Augustana Campus, University of Alberta No Baselines – No Claim

When I attended the opening night of the conference on fracking held at the Augustana Campus, I was struck by the forceful and extreme claim made at the start of the presentation by the main spokesman for the industry. He claimed that there has never been a documented case of fracking polluting groundwater in any of the two million or so fracking events that have occurred worldwide. He repeatedly emphasized that this conclusion was based on scientific evidence, and indeed, pointed to many charts and graphs to support his point. We learned that fracking, or hydraulic fracturing, is a technique that involves injecting a fluid (its contents are secret so the public can’t know the chemicals to which it may be being exposed) into oil-bearing rocks at such high pressure that the rocks fracture, releasing the oil or natural gas that it contains. However, the crucial evidence required to support the claim that fracking has not led to the polluting of groundwater was never even mentioned, let alone presented. To make such a convincing claim, one would need to be able to point to meticulously obtained baseline data showing the condition of the water prior to the fracking. Then, one would need to be able to show that the groundwater analysis after the fracking event showed no significant changes. Without this evidence, there is no basis for the industry’s claim that fracking has not affected the groundwater in a region. Given that this is crucial evidence, if I were running public relations for the fracking campaign, and I truly were confident that it has no polluting effect on groundwater, in each case I would want to have an independent baseline analysis done and then an independent analysis after the event. Then, if I had this kind of reliable comparative evidence to show no changes following a fracking event, I would be trumpeting it to the world as very strong evidence in support of our claims. What strikes me as significant is the complete absence of discussion of this kind of evidence. In fact, the spokesman ducked or didn’t understand the significance of the first question put to the speakers, which was pursuing the importance of baseline data. This lack of discussion, or even acknowledgement of the issue, invites the question of why the industry would not be focussing on this best evidence to provide good support for its claims. One can only guess as to why. I suppose there are two possibilities. The first and unlikely possibility is that the industry does not understand the importance and the logic of these basic research methods. The second, and more insidious possibility, is that they do, and they have gathered the appropriate comparative data, but somehow it hasn’t worked out as well as they wished. Perhaps the lack of “documented cases” mentioned in the presentation simply means the industry has decided not to publish the results. At this point, it seems to me, that it is the industry’s responsibility and duty to support their claims. I think it’s important to recognize that the current evidence they present as their best “scientific” evidence is inadequate and misleading, and clearly does not support their claim that fracking is environmentally safe.

Chev Orlando Get the most from your vehicle

By Dan Jensen

The 2013 Chevrolet Orlando at McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC is helping you get the most out of your lifestyle by getting the most out of the vehicle you drive. Orlando can transport the same number of people you would expect with a significantly larger vehicle. "After a year on Canadian roads, Orlando has already changed people's attitudes towards family transportation," says Chevrolet. "For openers, there's the idea that you can accommodate up to seven people across three rows of seating in a vehicle that is only 4,665 mm long. The versatility gives you lots of possibilities, with second- and third-row seating that folds down flat to open into a substantial 1,594 litres of cargo room – accessible through the largeopening rear doors." But with Orlando, it's not just the quantity of the space that stands out. It's also the quality of the driving experience. Your comfort is enhanced by standard reclining front bucket seats with a four-way driver's seat adjuster. LTZ models add such premium amenities as heated front seats, a power six-way driver's seat adjuster, automatic climate control, and an auto-dimming interior rear view mirror. A series of conveniently located storage compartments allow you and your passengers to keep those essential items close at hand.

Connected, entertained, assisted

Advanced technology has many functions in Orlando. A series of features keep you connected while on the road, starting with available Bluetooth handsfree phone connectivity that enables you to make, answer and end calls on compatible mobile phones. Eager for a broad choice of entertainment for your family journey? The standard SiriusXM Satellite Radio offers 130 channels of programming – everything from all your favourite musical genres to news, talk, comedy and sports. You'll also enjoy a range of support services through the standard OnStar system with six months of the Directions and Connections Plan with Turn-by-Turn Navigation and OnStar RemoteLink. Want to find the nearest gas station? OnStar's advisors assist with these functions and so much more. Fuel savings

Orlando does away with the opinion that vehicles that can seat seven aren't that great on fuel because they require more power. Its award-winning 2.4 litre ECOTEC dual overhead cam four-cylinder engine offers a substantial output of 174 horsepower while also earning an impressive 7.0 litres per 100 km highway fuel consumption rating. Shifts within the automatic transmission are accomplished by applying and disengaging clutches simultaneously, which

Pete Pastuck McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC provides a more direct feel for the driver, compared to the "freewheeling" gear change mechanisms. On the road, a wide selection of shift patterns is adapted to the styles and habits of the driver, anticipating when maximum acceleration or maximum efficiency is required. The electronic control also adapts to the prevailing wind conditions, including gear shifting when climbing or descending and using engine braking assistance during down changes. Orlando's chassis has been tuned to provide the ideal compromise between ride comfort and agility. McPherson struts, used for front suspension, use hydraulic bushings which are often found in more expensive vehicles, and provide increased ride isolation for passengers and controlled absorption of variable road surfaces. The advanced compound

crank (torsion beam) system at the rear is used as it offers the perfect compromise between suspension control combined with savings in weight and space. Immediate impression

Orlando LTZ makes an immediate impression with 18-inch aluminum wheels, bodycoloured door handles with a chrome strip and a chrome liftgate handle. Drive with confidence

Transporting your nearest and dearest carries with it a responsibility. Orlando is engineered and equipped with that reality foremost in mind. So you'll find a series of driver control technologies that help you keep clear of dangerous situations. The standard features include four-wheel disc brakes with ABS and panic brake assist, plus electronic traction control and the StabiliTrak Electronic

Stability Control System – a technology that has been proven to reduce the risk of a fatal single-vehicle crash. If a collision cannot be avoided, Orlando protects the integrity of the passenger compartment with a reinforced steel safety cage and six standard airbags. You can take further reassurance from the fact the 2012 Chevrolet Orlando received a 5-Star Euro NCAP safety ratng. Orlando demonstrates how innovative design can transform the once ordinary confines of the family vehicle to create a totally different experience for driver and passengers alike. See the 2013 Chevrolet Orlando at McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC at 385048 Avenue, Camrose. Phone 780672-2355 and ask for one of the friendly sales professionals.

Mayor Marshall Chalmers paints a door frame on the new Habitat for Humanity four-plex.

Four Camrose families are going to have new homes for Christmas. Habitat for Humanity Camrose was putting the finishing touches on a four-plex at 4015-75 Street last week. "We're doing some painting and tiling around the tubs and expect to have everything done by December 15," said Habitat for Humanity Camrose building committee chair Larry Schultz. "They take a little while but we are very optimistic." The four units are 1,038 square feet each, in keeping with the development requirements for the area. The end units have fully finished basements to accommodate larger families of four, while the middle units have unfinished basements for smaller families. "The families are pretty anxious to move in," said Schultz. Habitat for Humanity partner families for 2012 are Michaelle Baerge and her three children; Diana Mahowich and her daughter, Summerlin; Carrie Bexson and her daughter, Meysyn; and Britney Hoppe and her three children, Preston, Ryder and Abby. All four families were chosen on the basis of need, income and the ability to pay a mortgage. Their down payment is 500 hours of sweat equity, which has to be completed by the time the mortgage is signed. "They have put in a lot of volunteer hours either at this build or at the ReStore," said Schultz. Habitat Camrose started work on the four-plex in April. "We used a lot of subcontractors for the major trades but

we had a lot of volunteer labour for the other things," said Schultz. "The Knights of Columbus did a wonderful job with the siding and Cargill helped with the fence. Without them and the other volunteer groups that helped us throughout the project we wouldn't have been able to get this far." Habitat Camrose was able to obtain a land for the homes at a very good price for the promise that they be built with front drive garages. "Normally we don't build homes with front drive garages but we felt the low cost of the lots would more than make up the extra expense," said Habitat for Humanity Camrose executive director Cody McCarroll. Mortgage payments made by the partner families go into a revolving fund which, along with proceeds from Habitat ReStore and donations, are used to build homes for others. Habitat Camrose has built 22 homes since it was registered under the Societies Act in 1996, and has plans to build ten more over the next five years. Families living in Habitat for Humanity homes enjoy better health and are able to build equity in their homes. The money they save by not having to pay rent allows them to upgrade their education and secure better employment. Benefits to the community include a broader tax base and a stimulated building economy. Habitat for Humanity Camrose believes that access to safe, decent and affordable housing is a basic human right that should be available to all.

The Battle River Community Foundation has granted $1,000 to the Camrose Children's Centre. Made possible by the Battle River Community Foundation's Community Fund, the grant will be used to purchase storage units for classrooms, baby furniture, and toys for assisted learning. The Camrose Children's Centre, an accredited, licenced day care centre, follows a learning through play approach to child care which fosters curiosity and an eagerness to learn in a secure and encouraging environment. Children explore and experiment as they develop feelings of being capable and competent. "In order to accomplish this mission, we must ensure a quality and comfortable facility for children," states the Centre. The Camrose Children's Centre includes a day home program which has 12 licenced providers and 47 children. The day care/out of school programs are registered for 120 children. The Centre also offers a full ECS program with 21 children registered. The Battle River Community Foundation exists to support projects and organizations in east central Alberta which benefit local communities and have a positive impact on the future. Grants from the Battle River Community Foundation are made possible through the generosity of individual donors who have created endowment funds, currently valued in excess of $6.726 million. The principal of these endowment funds remains untouched and the income is made available annually to support local projects and organizations. Some grant funding is also made available by generous donors who make flow-through gifts to the Battle River Community Foundation. Since its founding in 1995, the Battle River Community Foundation has granted over $1.6 million to various projects and initiatives.

Hoop Vikings finish first half undefeated By Murray Green

It was the perfect way to end the first half of the season for the Augustana women's basketball team, which defeated the NAIT Ooks 66-55 and 87-52 to close out the opening half of the year at 9-0 in the win-loss column. Taryn Story of Daysland led the offence with 16 points in the Nov. 23 game in Edmonton. The Vikings led 51-34 after three quarters to put the game out of reach for the Ooks. "We have more of a defensive mind set this year. We have always been good at offence and have led the league in scoring, but we also gave up a lot of points and shots," explained Taryn. "This year, that's our focus — to try and hold the other team to 50 points or fewer. That's our main goal and it has been working so far." Augustana cranked up the offence in the rematch by out scoring their opponents 27-13 in the second quarter. The birds didn't soar in the third either as the Vikings improved to a 29-12 margin and started to pull away in the contest with a combination of a solid offence and a sound defence. "We create a balanced attack on offence, but we have learned that defence is what wins you the games," added Taryn. Continued on page 48

The Augustana Vikings hockey team earned another three points in a weekend series against the Concordia Thunder. The Vikings hammered Concordia with five goals in the opening period and then cruised through a 10-2 mild-mannered home game on Nov. 23. However, the Thunder turned up the noise in the rematch in Edmonton the next night. Concordia built up a 3-1 lead on the strength of two power play goals in the second period and forced the Vikings into taking more penalties than they would have liked to. It also made the desperate Vikings consider mounting a comeback. Kenny Bradley netted the first tally of the contest in the middle of the opening period. After Augustana heard three outbursts from Concordia, the Vikings, led by Adam Johnson, came to life. Johnson helped set up defenceman Ryan Cornforth to close the gap and then garnered the equalizer in the last minute to force overtime. However, the extra time didn't solve the deadlock despite both teams generating four shots and scoring chances in the extra frame. Vikings goalie Joel Danyluk had a busy night by stopping 28 of 31 shots. Augustana fired 42 shots at the Thunder net. In the home contest, it was Bradley who scored first again for the Vikings, this time just 14 seconds after the puck was dropped. Matthew Foster, Johnson, Scott Aucoin and Bradley all collected two goals, while defencemen Harrison Tribble and Tanner Korchinski added single markers. Augustana netminder Paul Kolida could have taken the night off. He turned away six of eight shots to pick up the victory. The Vikings take on the Grant MacEwan Griffins on Jan. 9 to kick-off the second half of the season in the EnCana Arena beginning at 7:30 p.m. in Camrose. Benefit game

The Charlie Killam School Cougars girls' team captured the gold medals at the Battle River Junior High Athletic Association Regional Volleyball Tournament Nov. 17.

Davidse honoured for coaching success with Buffaloes By Murray Green To say Carl Davidse is Camrose's Mr. Football would be an understatement. He has coached many teams over the past 21 years in sports such as hockey, soccer and football. Carl's passion for football was ignited by his father Lawrence, who loved the CFL and the Edmonton Eskimo’s. The Rose City Minor Football Association honoured Carl for his years of dedicated service to the organization on Nov. 24 at the year-end banquet. "This was a shock for me. I just wanted to coach to help the kids, so to have this is just on top. It is a real special thing," said Carl. "I wasn't expecting it and I'm not in it for the accolades. Camrose is a diamond in the rough when it comes to football. When you look at all of our successes, relatively speaking, we are way more successful than other sports. Just to be a part of that from the ground level and keep it going is a real honour." Carl, a level three certified coach, helped start the Camrose Coyotes bantam football team, which later became the Buffaloes. He was one of the coaches of the first ever peewee football team and then the atom team. "Once the bantam program was up and running, Joe Kucy and I started the peewee team. Not a lot of people realize this, but it all started because Joe had a registered society called the Wood Buffalo. That is where the Buffaloes came from. The first year they offered atoms, they just practiced. When the team entered the league, I was lucky enough to coach them." Prior to coaching the Buffaloes, Carl coached the Camrose Composite High School Trojans team for 13 years and, when his son Michael was seven, he switched to coaching the first atom team that competed in the Capital District Minor Football Association. "It was really tough going from high school down to atom," Carl explained. "Once you get used to where they are at

and change your expectations a little, it was okay. It was really hard the first year. After coaching players who are more mature and pick up things a little quicker and then going to seven-year-olds who didn't know where to stand, it was tough." That first year had a lot of growing pains because none of the players had ever played contact football before. However, in the third year of atom the Buffaloes lost in the Tier 2 league final by one touchdown. The first year peewee Buffaloes appeared in their first of four consecutive league finals. They won Tier 4 provincials that year. In bantams, the Buffaloes advanced to the provincial north semifinals in both seasons to make it three provincial appearances in four years. He was also recognized by his peers in the league by winning coach of the year two years straight. "Winning provincials was a big thing for us in our first year of peewees (after coaching two years of atoms)," said Carl. "The fondest memories are of seeing the players develop or when you receive a new player and you find out how really good he is. I would be remiss if I didn't say that working with all of the different coaches was great. I've met some good guys all of the way through and building those relationships has been some of the fondest memories for me." This season the coach moved his son Michael into the quarterback position and it paid off with a provincial berth. "Just to see his level that he has gained over the years was good. His football IQ is through the roof. He called audibles on all of the plays and knew what different things to look for," said Carl. "We have gone from showing Grade 10 players how to put the equipment on to now sending players to the high school with six to eight years of experience under their belts. That's awesome and I'm just glad to be a part of that." By dressing only 18 players

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Former Rose City Football Association president Tyson Sikstrom presented coach Carl Davidse (right) with a helmet for his many years of dedicated service to minor football in Camrose.

for some games, the coach was pushed to do more. "Some players played six different positions and it really helped the players' IQ by playing both offence and defence. I think they learned a lot more,

became tougher and were better football players in the end because of it. I had to keep it simple, while being effective, so when a player filled in he could do well." Carl loves football and hopes

to continue coaching next year with the Camrose Composite High School Trojans and the Battle River Shock midget football team.

Kodiaks sweep Canmore Eagles By Murray Green

The Camrose Kodiaks feasted on the Canmore Eagles in a two game weekend series on Nov. 23 and 24. Brett Njaa led the offence with two goals and an assist in a 5-2 win in the second game. Dallas Bergstrom, Jakson Elynuik and

Ty Clay picked up single markers. Nolan Marshall also had a good game with three assists. Netminder Devin McDonald made 29 of 31 saves in the Camrose net. The Kodiaks registered 42 shots on the Canmore cage. Camrose jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first game with tal-

lies from Kieran O'Neil and Scott Feser. The Eagles swooped in two power play markers in the second to tie the contest. The Kodiaks regained the lead in the third frame when Kirsten Odendaal shot the puck over the goal line on a power play opportunity of their own. Goalie Matt Gibney stood tall for Camrose by making 28 of 30 saves for the win. The Kodiaks recorded 32 shots on the Eagles net. The sweep left the Kodiaks two points back of the second place Okotoks Oilers, but Camrose has game in hand. Special games

Camrose Special Olympics Athletes Dakota Blanchard, left, and Robert Lazariuk, right, with Camrose Kodiaks Ryan Hoult and Cam Gotaas are ready to launch the Draft an Athlete program.

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.

"Whether you like it or not, you learn to play defence first. I have learned to love it. Our coach has developed her style over the last four years and so far it has been working well." It marked the third game in two weeks that the Vikings received scoring from 11 players. Kelsey Lund led the team with 16 points, while Taryn chipped in with 12. "Because we are so balanced, I think it makes it hard for other teams to scout our team. Everyone works hard and anyone can step up." Taryn recalled her first year when the team won only five games. "It was a struggle at first, but each year we have gotten better. Last year, we lost to Lethbridge in the quarter-finals. Now we are at a point where we can challenge the best teams. We are

hosting the playoff championships and it is a tournament style this year and it is a one-game elimination. You have to prepare for one game and be ready to play. The pressure drives us and we hope the home crowd will help us. It makes us hungrier, knowing that we have to win." Hosting the event doesn't mean the Vikings are satisfied with just being there. "Other people have the mind set that we are hosting, so we don't have to work as hard. Out goal is to finish first and win the playoffs. We want to prove to the league that we are going to earn our spot. It is going to be a rowdy house here and I'm excited about it." Although the Vikings are in first place, the team isn't comfortable yet. "There are some strong teams in the north that we haven't played. Although we are first, we can't relax," said Taryn. "We have to keep pushing and rankings are just numbers. We have always had a better second half to the season, so this is a shift for us. Knowing we have stronger teams to face keeps us more intense on training and preparing for the next semester." The fact Taryn has grown up in the area makes her proud to be contributing to the team's

success. "It's good to have some success and everyone knows who you are. It's always nice to have that support. We do it (play hard) for our school and the community." Taryn's father Wilf was a fierce baseball player on the mound and at the plate in the area. "I think that is where my competitive edge comes from," admitted Taryn. This season Augustana has another story. "I've never had the opportunity to play on the same team as my sister (Hayley) before because we are three years apart. It really means a lot and I definitely want to be a role model for her. I treat her like any other teammate as an equal, and it's cool to see her growth as a player in the first half. One benefit of having a sister on the team is that if she does struggle, she has someone to come to because I can relate to what players are going through." Taryn is emerging as a leader both on and off the court. "Whatever the role the team needs me for, I will get the job done. I want to help create that balanced attack, so that everyone is scoring and feeling that they are contributing. It is good to have the added depth this year."

EMS stages mock disaster for Augustana nursing program By Murray Green

The University of Alberta, Augustana Campus after degree nursing program received some valuable lessons from Alberta Health Services EMS Camrose during a mock disaster event last month. "We learned how to triage patients, especially in a mass casualty situation, and we learned what the nurses job is to do," said student Alison Lundall. "We learned when to step in and do more for patients and when to take a step back and realize the patient is gone." The mock disaster session helped the students bridge the gap between classroom studies and real life situations. "It's nice to see how it all happens with reallife situations," added Alison. "It's good to see how all of the health care professionals work together. We saw how the paramedics come in and what they do, so it helps us understand how we have to work with the paramedics in order to assess the patients and give the right care that they need." Communication is a key component in the process. "I noticed when they (EMS) first brought the patients to the hospital, that they made sure the nurses were fully informed on what had already been done and what they think needs to be done," said Alison. "You don't want to leave anything out, so you don't give the patient the wrong care." Another important part of the exercise is that the students learned what it is like to be cold and waiting for care to arrive, so they know what to do to help the patient. EMS gained some knowledge from the exercise as well. "For us it was very valuable practice. It also helps the nursing students understand what our jobs are and what we do," said paramedic leader Andy Postma. "If they are working in emergency and an EMS crew comes in, they now

understand some of the things we go through and the nurses can relate to what is happening. It builds better teamwork and creates a rapport with various individuals providing care. It could mean better patient care." The hospital staff and EMS need to be on the same wave length when discussing patients. "The things we do as paramedics might be different than what they do in the hospital. If we go to a mass casualty situation, it is a different triage system than the hospital uses. If we bring in a patient and we say it is a red, then it means it is a serious situation as opposed to a yellow or green," explained Andy. "The hospital uses a system of 1-2-3-4 to rate patients." Andy's wife Linda is a paramedic and a registered nurse, so her insight was valuable to the students. "She has worked on both sides and has knowledge of both. The students were able to ask her questions about the things to look for. It also helps us to know more what happens in emergency," added Andy. "When people understand each other better, they work better together. Today we are doing a lot of simulations with some equipment. We are not doing everything as in a real situation, but it gives the crew a chance to talk through the steps and why they are taking them. We first assess the scene for hazards and when we do it out loud, the nurses hear what we are saying and know what we are thinking. They realize we have to look for dogs to make sure it is safe. One of the scenarios was a gun shot wound. We have to determine if it is safe to proceed, or if we have to wait for police assistance." The EMS staff has to be aware of the surroundings they are in at all times. "If we are the next victims, we are not doing the person who is hurt any good. Safety has to come first," said Andy.
