Camrose Camerata has been attracting audiences and rave reviews for ten years. In recognizing a decade of great music-making, a unique and compelling two-part concert will be held in the vibrant acoustic setting of Messiah Lutheran Church on Sunday, April 13, at 7 p.m. This year, audience members will be treated to an even wider array of resounding compositions as a guest orchestra and members of Edmonton choir, Vocal Alchemy, join in the milestone celebration titled: “Here and There, Now and Then.” The first segment of the evening will be selections by accomplished composers with a Camrose connection. Respected musicians include: Milton Schlosser, Marc Hafso, Tova Olson, James Neff and Darryl Dewalt and and the list goes on…. The evening will conclude with a performance of the Schubert Mass in G. “The music written and composed by Schubert, at just 18 years of age, is the ideal way to represent the choral-orchestral writing style of the era,” according to Camrose Camerata director Joy-Anne Murphy.

The CAMROSE BOOSTER, April 8, 2014 – Page 4

Premier Hancock puts Augustana on agenda By Dan Jensen

Alberta Premier Dave Hancock stopped in at Augustana April 4 as part of his ongoing tour of campuses across Alberta. “Part of this (visit) was because of the local MLA (Verlyn Olson, MLA for Wetaskiwin-Camrose and Minister of Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development),” said Hancock, who is also Minister of Innovation and Advanced Education. “He was insistent that I come so that he could have Augustana show me first hand the old lab he went to in high school and that they are still using.” Hancock said the new facilities that have sprung up at Augustana the past few years, including the performing arts centre, demonstrate the importance of a post secondary working together with the community. “Augustana is imbued with tradition and a sense of where it fits into the community, and it is always looking forward.” Hancock said the fact that the government set aside $32.5 million for the Campus Alberta system in the 2014 budget to increase access to high-demand programs such as engineering, environmental science and occupational therapy shows it is cognizant of the future needs of students. “We need to really be planning for them. We have

had a baby boom in this province for the last number of years and it is hitting the K to 12 system. We need to aspire for it to hit the post secondary system relatively soon.” Hancock said there are 100,000 people coming to the province every year who need to skill and re-skill. “They are not all coming with the education they need to maximize potential and to participate. We need

to make it more possible for people to find the educational tools that they need to help maximize their potential and move to the next level.” Hancock said places like Augustana are critical to the Campus Alberta system because rural areas tend to have a lower level of education. “Part of that is because of access. People can’t always leave to go someplace

else to get the education. Augustana is doing a particularly good job of linking with the First Nations and aboriginal community to make sure there are opportunities for success.” Hancock said suburban universities like Augustana can often provide a more welcoming environment to students who come from rural areas. “As the dean here says the good news is your

instructors know your name, and the bad news is that the instructors know your name. That (small setting) is an environment that is important if they are to achieve success. Location is important, style is important. All of those are part of the accessibility. You can’t look at everything through the perspective of a large urban university setting. The style of learning you offer is important.”

FCSS funding flat-lined in new provincial budget Family and Community Support Services offices across the province were dismayed at learning that the FCSS provincial grant will remain stagnant within Alberta Human Services budgets over the next three years. CDSS (Camrose and District Support Services) is the FCSS program for Cam rose County, the City of Camrose, and the Villages of Bawlf, Bittern Lake, Edberg, Ferintosh, Hay Lakes and Rosalind. CDSS offers comprehensive information and referral services locally, and helps fund programs like OSCAR, Service Options for Seniors, Camrose PreSchool, Hay Lakes Play School, Family Violence counselling services, the Boys and Girls Club, Home Support/Meals on Wheels and the Camrose Family Resource Centre. In addition, small rural organizations benefit from the fund development expertise offered by the Rural Outreach program (among other things), while collaborative groups like the Camrose Seniors’ Coalition and Camrrose Interagency are hosted by CDSS. CDSS

produces a monthly interagency newsletter and an annual help book, both of which are widely acknowledged as valuable community resources. Finally, CDSS participates in the City’s Social Development Committee. There has not been an increase in provincial FCSS funding for programs like CDSS since April 2009. “Funding is not keeping up, so this multi-year Human Resources operational plan that keeps the FCSS grant at a level that is already far too low is downright scary. I don’t know what to think of it.”

With no increase in sight for at least another two years, FCSS resources are virtually flatlined and barely holding. Meanwhile, pressures on local programs continue to mount as Alberta experiences tremendous population growth, and the disparity gap between upper-

income Albertans and lower-income Albertans continues to widen. ‘We’ve certainly experienced that growth locally,” observes CDSS executive director, Margaret Holliston. “For example, we just held our pre-school registration night, and three out of four classes for four-year olds are full. OSCAR registration boomed this past year and we don’t see that settling down. At the other end, with ‘aging in place’ gaining ground, we have seen an increase in our Home Support clients, as well as the drop-in clients that access Service Options for Seniors”. CDSS has had to streamline some of its funding over the past few years, even as demand has increased. “Funding is not keeping up, so this multi-year Human Resources operational plan that keeps the FCSS grant at a level that is already far too low is downright scary,” said Holliston. “I don’t know what to think of it.” Family and Community Support Services is an 80/20 cost-shared funding partnership between the

province and municipalities or Metis settlements to provide preventive social services to Albertans. Over half of the 320 municipalities with FCSS programs contribute far more than the required 20 per cent. CDSS is one of those municipalities, having received an extra $25,000 from Cam rose County going into 2014 and over $14,000 more from the City. Even the villages have added what they can to the CDSS budget, recognizing the value that comes from investing in prevention. Jeff Carlson, president of the FCSS Association of Alberta, recently issued a statement calling upon the government to review its commitment to FCSS funding. Noting that FCSS staff and volunteers in every corner of the province were instrumental in supporting last year’s roll out of the provincial Social Policy Framework and in furthering the province’s commitment to a Poverty Reduction Strategy this year, Carlson’s statement connects FCSS prevention with the province’s expressed goals and out-

comes regarding the social wellbeing of all Albertans. According to Carlson, the FCSSAA concurs with Human Services Minister Manmeet Bhuller’s position that his Ministry focus more on prevention to support early intervention and collaborative approaches to service delivery. This is exactly the way FCSS staff and volunteers have worked in communities for over 40 years. Yet, while other areas within the Ministry have seen their budgets go up – especially those involved in child intervention or early child development – FCSS funding, which supports prevention across the lifespan, remains stagnant. Why is this? Holliston points out that FCSS has “a very accountable, very relevant, very effective and very efficient reporting mechanism in place. “We track outcomes and continue to make a difference in our local communities. We contribute to the well-being of the province as a whole. But we are at a tipping point, and our future is looking rather bleak at the moment. I would like to know why that is.”

By Murray Green

Camrose County administrator Steve Gerlitz resigned from his position after about 11 years on March 27. Gerlitz was hired as the Chief Administrative Officer for Camrose County in 2003 to replace retiring Brian Austrom, who served in that position for 12 years. He decided to officially leave the County after taking holidays and a leave of absence. “We wish Steve well in his future endeavors,” said Reeve Don Gregorwich. “We are currently on a country wide search for a replacement for the CAO position.” Gerlitz was instrumental in helping the County develop a sustainable wood energy program to heat the office in Camrose. About 17,600 willows were planted and the first harvest was done in January 2013. This sustainable system will benefit the environment and, in the long run, all Alberta municipalities. The research will prove that another viable alternative is available. The County is looking for someone with a high degree of knowledge in municipal affairs who is able to work well with the public.

Earth Hour results Camrose residents joined the efforts of people around the world during Earth Hour (8:30 to 9:30 March 29) by turning off lights and other electrical devices. The total electricity consumption between 8:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. on both Mar. 22 and Mar. 29 was 20,271 kW and 19,325 kW respectively. Camrose’s energy savings during Earth Hour was 946 kW which is equivalent to powering 63,067 15W CFL light bulbs and 1,051 houses for an hour. The average temperature in Camrose for each day was -13˚C and -4˚C. Camrose ranks 32nd when compared to other communities in FortisAlberta’s service territory in regards to largest percentage of electricity reduction between Mar. 22 and Mar. 29. Small changes can make a huge difference. The total electricity saved during Earth Hour in the communities surveyed was enough electricity to power three per cent of Albertan households for an hour.

Drinking cultures around the world Second Thought A few weeks ago, I was listening to a radio discussion on the topic of raising the legal age for drinking. Lots of listeners were calling in with their opinions, but the overall theme was that young ‘newly legal’ people don’t know how to handle their alcohol. What wasn’t discussed was the North American culture of drinking. The ways in which young people approach drinking alcohol is directly related to what we teach them or, more broadly, the culture of drinking that they grow up in. I have lived in a variety of countries around the world and witnessed the drinking habits of their different cultures. From my experience, Sweden and Belgium offer two excellent examples of the impact of culture on drinking. The population of these countries, like Canada, have high incomes (considered globally) and are largely urbanized. In all three countries, the average person over the age of 15 consumes about 10 litres of alcohol per year (ranging from 10.8L in Belgium, 10.3L in Sweden, and 9.8L in Canada), yet their drinking patterns, the gov-

Shauna Wilton, Political Studies, Augustana Campus, University of Alberta

ernment policy on drinking, and the risk of alcohol related health issues all differ significantly. Sweden has socially recognized problems with alcohol consumption and the World Health Organization ( gives them a risk ranking of three out of five (moderate risk). Alcohol is only sold in government liquor stores, which have very restricted hours (until recently they were not even open on weekends), and the state applies an across the board 25 per cent tax on alcohol.

Despite these restrictions, a person is more at risk of developing an alcoholrelated disease and you are far more likely to see public drunkenness in Sweden than in either Canada or Belgium. As well, almost 20 per cent of all alcohol consumed is hard alcohol or spirits and the average price of a beer is almost eight dollars. At those prices, it is not surprising that they also produce a lot of bootleg spirits. In Belgium, beer and wine are readily available at grocery and corner stores. Children are frequently present in public places where alcohol is consumed, such as pubs, and so beer and wine are seen as a part of life, most often consumed in connection with meals. The legal age for ordering alcohol in a pub is 16 and the average price of a beer is approximately $2. However, Belgium is given the lowest risk rating by the WHO. In Canada, much of the laws relating to the legal consumption are determined at the provincial level. In Alberta, the legal drinking age is 18. Alcohol is sold in specialized liquor stores, but these are not operated by the govern-

ment and are open all days and most hours. Children are not present in establishments where drinking occurs, other than at restaurants. Canada has a risk ranking between Sweden and Belgium (two out of five) and the average price of a beer is $4.50. However, among the three countries, Canada also had significantly higher rates of episodic drinking than the others, especially among men. These three countries are similar in many ways. Their differences in government policy towards alcohol, however, vary significantly. What becomes apparent is that higher control and regulation of alcohol does not lead to a lower risk of alcohol related diseases. Sweden has one of the most highly regulated alcohol policies among Western, developed countries, yet has significantly more problems associated with alcohol consumption than Belgium, which has a very relaxed alcohol policy in comparison. What I suspect is more important, is the culture of drinking that we live and, in particular, how we model drinking for children.

During National Volunteer Week (April 6 to 12), Canadian Blood Services thanks and celebrates the more than 17,000 volunteers who donated 210,000 hours of their time in the last year to support Canada’s blood system. Volunteers help make saving lives possible. We truly appreciate the talent and energy our volunteers contribute – it’s time that made a significant difference in the lives of hundreds of thousands of Canadians who needed blood products this past year. Volunteers promote important campaigns throughout the year, coordinate and host blood donor

clinics and speak to others about the importance of blood, stem cell, organ and tissue donations. On behalf of our national team at Canadian Blood Services, I’d like to send a heartfelt thanks to all volunteers in Camrose who support Canadian Blood Services as well as other charitable organizations in Canada. Sincerely, Harvinder Lallh Regional Supervisor Volunteer Resources Canadian Blood Services Alberta and Saskatchewan End “Indian” acts

I appreciate Debby McKay’s thoughtful response (March 18) to my letter. I agree with her assessment that nomadic life “was very purposeful;” it had to be, their survival depended it. Which is precisely why the notion of “nation” is spurious; as she pointed out, nomadic tribes did not live within demarcated boundaries, nor did they settle in one area for more than a season. They needed to move with the food supply. Furthermore, they were more than happy to “sell” the land they occasionally hunted and gathered to “those

silly people with the great technology” since, for them, it was something for nothing. In their culture, if the dogma is true, ownership of the land was an absurdity, so they were selling what they did not own to “foreign suckers”. The Canadian government, in all its paternalistic glory, purposed to provide “Natives” with a carbon copy of the British boarding school system, which was considered at the time the best in the world, suitable for the wealthy and privileged, the sons of kings and noblemen. It was an abusive system in England, and it was an abusive system in Canada, by today’s standards; nevertheless here it produced many of the early leaders of the aboriginal community. I do not excuse the abuses but simply highlight one benefit. Ms. McKay complains of my supposedly “complete disdain and disrespect” for certain stereotypical “peoples.” Any disrespect I have would be far less if many of those in question were not so diligent to be blatant racists, insisting on recognition of their race being the way they are to be viewed and the basis for special privileges. (To block roads and railways with impunity, receive free post-

secondary education, etc.) They act on the basis of race and not merely occasionally make reference to it in terms of ancestral origins. There should be one law for all; I do not favor any discrimination on the basis of race, rather that all be treated equally. Along with many of those who have to live under it (and it affects us all), I call for elimination of the racist “Indian Act.” It is very condescending with its in built assumption that “Aboriginal” Canadians are akin to mildly retarded children in need of adult supervision. They are human beings just like every other human being, deserving of the liberties and self-determination others enjoy on the basis of one law for all. An immense bureaucracy and manifold grievance mongers would lose their constituency if we repealed the patronizing “Indian Act” and treated all men and women as responsible adults. On “Maskwacis,” I apologize for my disparagement of their community’s new name; I should have made the effort to learn its proper pronunciation rather than scoff at it. Douglas Hendrickson Camrose Why does Camrose need a new City Hall?

As we see the new municipal building growing each week, does anyone ask why? Why do we need any kind of building to house our civil servants to spend our money (you could rent some office rooms). We’re not in the 1800s in England – where the rich and politicians lived in mansions and huge public buildings to lord over the public. Do we not have enough laws and regulations that there should only be parttime politicians and the rest of the time they can do their other job? I would like to know their schedule. They are never at work (not like the rest of us), they have months off at Christmas, spring break, summer break. Also, everything is on computers, so why is the building growing so big, when there should be less people to do the same job? Once again, it’s like the theatre. Spend all that money and then they keep asking for more. I can’t even imagine how much this is really going to cost the taxpayers of Camrose in the end. Sheila Faulkner, Donalda

GOLF Indoor Training Program 2014 into Swing Indoor g Sprin School Golf

STARTS NEXT WEEK! A few spots still remain.

Maximum Golf is a group-based golf training and conditioning program meant to prepare golfers for the season ahead and increase one’s ability to swing more efficiently through the ball. This program is based on the repetition of a concise set of drills that allow you to practice without requiring the use of a golf ball. These drills teach you how to swing more efficiently and with better swing mechanics. Feeling is very important to this teaching method, proven for over 30 years. In 2014, this program will be taught in a two-week (4 sessions) condensed format. Given that people live very busy lifestyles, coupled with others who like to take a winter vacation, we understand that making a commitment to a program which lasts several weeks is too difficult. The condensed format offers a wealth of skills, without being too difficult to fit into one’s schedule. To avoid disappointment, you are encouraged to book early in this extremely popular program. BILL PENNY – C.P.G.A. Master Golf Professional has been teaching Maximum Golf since the mid-’80s to over 2,500 students. Now available to the Camrose golfing community.

Sessions start Tuesday, April 15: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6:30-8:15 p.m. Location: St. Patrick School, 4816-53 Avenue

Sorenson announces intention to seek nomination in new riding Crowfoot Member of Parliament and Minister of State (Finance) announced last week that he has filed his nomination papers to become the first Member of Parliament for the riding of Battle River - Crowfoot. “Over the last 14 years, I have had the pleasure of representing the people in the constituency of Crowfoot,” said Sorenson. “Together, we went from opposition to government, and then to a national majority government. Under the leadership of Prime Minister Harper, our government remains focused on returning to balanced budgets, creating jobs and growth, while keeping taxes low.” Sorenson said good economic management requires tough decisions, a focus on priorities, fiscal discipline and sound judgment. “Every middle class family knows that budgets don’t balance themselves. Thanks to our govern-

Kevin Sorenson

ment’s leadership, we are on the road to a strong economic recovery. The federal budget will be balanced in 2015 and that is something we can be proud of. “We have also scrapped the Liberal’s failed and costly long-gun registry, monopoly powers of the Canadian Wheat Board and we continue to keep

our family values at the core of what we do. We are working together to keep up with all the opportunities to prosper in our part of booming Alberta and Canada.” Sorenson has worked closely with many local officials, groups and volunteers throughout the Crowfoot region. “It is truly a team effort in our large, rural riding,” he said. “I would like to thank my wife Darlene, and our family and friends for their ongoing support as we look ahead another four years.” While he is sad that the new riding doesn’t include some communities and folks he has worked with for years, Sorenson has no doubt that these constituents will continue to be well represented by the Conservative Party of Canada. “I look forward to reestablishing strong working relationships with the municipalities that I have represented in the past.”

Church to purchase land from the City By Murray Green

Century Meadows Baptist Church in Camrose has received permission from the City of Camrose to purchase a parcel of land that it was already using. A number of years ago (early 1980s) the church built a garage that is partly located on City property. Councillor Bill Sears moved at the Feb. 18 regular meeting that the City subdivide and sell a portion of lot R36, Block 27, Plan 7720407 to Century Meadows Baptist Church for $1,500 plus costs, and that an easement agreement be entered into for the garage to remain on the utility easement. The motion had been

tabled until March 17 to allow staff to come back with the market value of the property and to provide details on the associated costs. The market value for the particular piece of land is $15,000. “We are able to provide a rough estimate of the costs associated with the subdivision and consolidation based on a recent City consolidation to be between $3,500 and $6,500, dependent on the cost of the surveyor,” explained Kim Isaak, general manager corporate and protective services. Trustee Blaine Fenske of Century Meadows Baptist Church told council the church would like to purchase the property instead

of an encroachment or lease agreement. The City could have ordered the removal and relocation of the garage because it is still on skids and is not on a permanent foundation. When the garage was built there was no development or building permit. “My concern again is that we are not selling this for fair market value,” said councillor Wayne Throndson. “I’m still struggling with the idea of giving a 90 per cent discount. No offence to the Baptist Church, but my concern is more general that I often felt that we, as council, shouldn’t use our positions to make donations of taxpayer’s dollars.”

Councillor Greg Wood and Max Lindstrand echoed those comments. “I think this situation is unique and it shouldn’t be setting a precedent,” said councillor Kevin Hycha. “I would be in favour in this case.” Another use for the land would be hard to find. The land can be sold and would require a public hearing as well as notification to the property owners on or near the municipal reserve that is subject to the hearing. After council has considered the representations at the public hearing a removal of designation of the land can be proceeded with through Land Titles. All of those

costs, including a $200 development permit, would be passed on to the church. Because Century Meadows Baptist Church would be considered a not-for-profit organization the City is not required to sell the lands for market value. Administration recommended that council consider selling the land at 10 per cent of the market value for $1, 500. This option would give Century Meadows Baptist Church assurance that the garage would not have to be moved and it would not be setting a precedent for other encroachments. The vote was 6-3 in favour of selling the property to the church.

Feline Ottis returns to his Camrose roots By Murray Green

Camrose resident Caron McKenzie still believes in miracles. In fact, she may have witnessed one first hand. “Last August my husband and I went away for a much needed mini-vacation, so we went camping in Hardisty,” explained Caron. “When we returned we were informed that one of our cats, Ottis was missing. He went out on Friday night and this was Monday and he still hadn’t returned.” Even for a tomcat like Ottis, this was a bit unusual. “I began to panic, but thought I would give him a few more days because the mice were running,” said Caron. A few days came and went and still no Ottis. “With him missing, it was hitting me really hard because Ottis was more special to me than a lot of people realized,” Caron continued. “I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010 and after the surgery my children, Amanda and Taylor, found Ottis and brought him to the hospital. From that day on Ottis became my constant companion and then became my “Chemo Kitty” to help me get through it.” After Caron’s first chemo treatment, Ottis laid on her chest and didn’t move until he knew she was feeling better. “The entire 10 months I was home, he was always there keeping me company and being my protector,” she said. Then one day he was gone. “I had no idea as to where he was or could be. I placed an ad in the Camrose Booster with his picture and had several calls (all of which she followed up on) and nothing. About three weeks later, I had a very unusual call from Sharon

Murray Green, Camrose Booster

Caron McKenzie and her lucky charm Ottis were reunited on St. Patrick’s Day after more than six months apart. The feline survived the long winter with just a touch of frostbite.

Thompson at Highway 13,” reported Caron. “She told me that she had seen my ad and told me ‘this is going to sound strange, but around the same time as Ottis went missing, we had a truck go out to Sedgewick for a delivery. When the driver opened the door an orange cat took off and ran into the field.’” Caron and her husband Mel live two blocks from Highway 13 Transport, so it wasn’t a stretch for him

to wander over to check out the trucks. “I called O’Briens Auto where the delivery had taken place and the lady I spoke to remembered seeing him only one time. I sent her an email with his picture and she was kind enough to post it for me. About a month after he disappeared, we went to Sedgewick to camp overnight and hopefully see him somewhere,” she recalled. “We came up empty handed. I thought maybe that this was too

far-fetched and that he was either dead or someone in Camrose had him.” She continued her search in Camrose. “Occasionally I would still get calls from people in Sedgewick (as she had also placed an ad in the Killam and Sedgewick paper) and my husband would drive there to have a look. After about three months and my hopes diminishing, I had a call from a lady in Sedgewick again. Her name was Donna Sparrow and she was

sure she had seen Ottis. As Camrose is about an hour drive I asked if she could take a picture and send it to me to help clarify if this was him.” The long cold winter started in October and reached -50 C temperatures at times and six and a half months had lapsed. “I had pretty much accepted the fact that he was gone. Until...I came into work on March 17 (St. Patrick’s Day) to an email from Donna with a picture. I studied this picture for quite a while and was 99.8 per cent sure it was Ottis and that he was alive,” said an excited Caron. “I emailed my daughter and she emailed me right back saying ‘OMG mom, all the hair on my arms just stood up, I was thinking about him this morning.’” Again they drove to Sedgewick that night and, after a few minutes of figuring out where Donna had said she saw him, they pulled up to the spot. They didn’t even have a chance to get out of the car. They rolled down the window and after calling him once, there he was. He was alive and well. “We got him into the car (after a bit of a fight) and once he realized he was safe he sat on the seat and then into my arms, and that is where he was until we got home. He is getting reunited with his dog Mick (who he went right up to like they were long lost buddies) and Milo, his brother,” shared Caron. “He is having a bit of trouble warming up to Murphy (another brother) who moved in a few months ago, but I’m sure in time that will all change. After all – seven months living in the wild 60 kilometres from your home would make anything or anyone kind of cranky. It shows that miracles really do happen, just don’t give up hope.”

Recycling Appreciation Day April 22 By Dan Jensen

How much difference does recycling actually make? Consider this. Recycled glass is the main ingredient in making “new glass,” and an estimated 80 per cent of recovered glass containers are made into new glass bottles. Recycling just one ton of paper saves 17 trees, 6,953 gallons of water, 463 gallons of oil, 587 pounds of air pollution and 4,077 kilowatt hours of energy. Each pound of mixed municipal solid waste (MSW) that you recycle is not only a pound saved from many years in a landfill but saves 2.5 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions. Considering a that the average person recycles or composts 1.5 pounds of mixed municipal solid waste every day, it can really add up; every ton of recycled MSW saves 2.27 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions. Recycling conserves our valuable natural resources, saves energy and saves clean air and water. “The recycling that we do keeps the landfill going,” said Terry Vickers, coordinator of the Recycle with Centra Cam depot in Camrose. “If we weren’t taking people’s garbage here, compacting it and sending it away it would be filled in no time.” Over the last year Recycle with Centra Cam col-

lected and shipped away 1,977.905 metric tonnes (98.85 semi loads) of product, from paper, cardboard, phone books, hard and soft cover books, paint, film (grocery bags), tin, glass, floor tubes, electronics and household batteries. “All those loads were compacted,” said Vickers. “If they were lose we would have shipped five times that many loads.” The amount of recyclables that have been received has stayed consistent over the last few years, with no major up or downswings. “It is difficult to understand considering the volume of calls that we are getting from people who are new to Camrose,” said Vickers. “We’re three semiloads down from where we were at this time last year.” While the recycling depot has experienced some problems in the past with people who tend to treat it as a garbage drop off, most of the people who use it are very respectful of it and are grateful for the services that are provided. “We always have some people who abuse the service but thankfully there aren’t that many,” explained Vickers. “They know that we have a good thing going here.” The Recycling with Centra Cam depot will be conducting a Recyclers

Appreciation Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 22, during which visitors will be able to enjoy free hot dogs, juice and pop, take a tour of the recycling facility and learn more about recycling in Alberta from guests Skip Kerr, board member with the Recycle Council of Alberta, and Elizabeth Gray, communications manager with Alberta Recycling. More Trees Please will be on site with a tree mover and a tree that is ready for transplant, while Bruce Hillman, from Dice-A-Bed will explain how he takes the old phone books that come to the depot, grinds them up, and resells the material as blow-in insulation and chicken bedding. OPT Waste Removal will also have a truck on site to give visitors an idea what happens with their used cardboard. “We wanted to hold it on Earth Day to express our appreciation to all those who support the depot in any way,” said Vickers. Visitors will be given coupon that can be redeemed at the depot for 10 pounds’ worth of paper shredding. The Recycle with Centra Cam depot is open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. More information on the services provided may be obtained by calling 780-679-4196, or emailing

New program lets stroke patients recover at home By Murray Green

Recovering stroke patients are now receiving care in their own homes in the Camrose area. Covenant Health St. Mary’s Hospital is participating in a pilot project that will see it expand its services as a primary stroke centre to include community based rehabilitation for individuals affected by mild to moderate stroke within their own home. Stroke Unit Care is a multidisciplinary model of care currently only proven effective in large, urban sites. It involves the clustering of beds as well as the cooperation and communication of nursing, physicians and rehabilitation staff with advanced training in management of stroke patients. The early supported discharge unit will be led by Melissa Sztym and a team of eight other staff members housed in the rehabilitation department in Unit 2 who will work at the hospital and in private homes on returning stroke victims to a normal life. “The Alberta Provincial Stroke Strategy, the Alberta Health Services (AHS) Strategic Clinical Network (SCN) and the Stroke Action Plan (SAP) will examine discrepancies in care between rural centres and large urban centres. The goal is to equalize standards of care by developing Stroke Unit Equivalent Care (SUEC) for rural/small urban sites,” said Dana Norton, St. Mary’s Hospital rehabilitation manager. “Stroke care is different in a city centre than it is in a rural setting. Because of this inequality, the province is taking action.” There can be a lot of differences, such as low volumes in rural communities. “It is harder to maintain competency and quality of care following best practices guidelines and the national standards that we go by in a much smaller setting. Sometimes it’s volumes and sometimes it is competency and skill sets,” explained Dana. Part of the pilot project includes multiple (five) sites across Alberta. “We were the first hand-picked site and the only Covenant Health site,” said Dana. “We will look at in-patient care, which is the SUEC side, as well as the bridging home to the community. That is the Early Supported Discharge (ESD) side. ESD is a bridging program to get people out of the hospital faster and back into their

homes, providing equivalent rehabilitation in a home setting. The added value to the client is that he or she gets to function at a higher level at home within a familiar environment.” An assessment at the stroke unit and one performed at home could give totally different results. “That is an easy example of why the home environment is that much better for the client,” stated Dana. “Getting them home faster is that much better for their mental health, psychology and we are trying to improve their outcomes.” The stroke rehabilitation team received funding to be able to move out of the hospital setting and into local homes. “Those are additional resources over and above what our current resources cover,” explained Dana. The pilot will run until March 31, 2015. “It will show how we can take the resources we have and increase services with intensive rehabilitation through the stroke centre as well as in the home for the clients,” said Melissa. A client satisfaction survey, along with client outcome measures to monitor improvement, will be used to determine the results. “When you look at the financials at the end of the day, it (ESD) should be a cost neutral project,” said Dana. “So it will actually be increasing rehabilitation home client services in the community, but decreasing life of stay in the hospital. They are trying to equalize that financially, so it doesn’t become

a burden on the health care.” Melissa said the goal is to reduce the length of stay in the hospital, while still receiving quality care. “This should decrease wait times for in-patient services. The ESD team is targeting mild to moderate stroke clients to follow them into their home to provide intensive rehab within the home setting. The more severe rehab patients would still go to inpatient rehabilitation unites such as Two Hills, Red Deer or Glenrose.”

“Our target for the ESD is about 20 clients per year on paper. This is above the regular numbers in stroke care.” In the ESD program, they could receive rehab every day for up to three hours a day. For someone in Camrose, it could not only mean they wouldn’t have to travel, but they would receive a higher intensity program within their home. Clients have been telling us one of the biggest impacts would be not having to drive, or rely on caregivers for rides. Research has proven that improving skills in the clients own home has sped up recovery times. “People just don’t want to go back to just living, they want to do the things they enjoy or like to do,” said Dana. “If they like playing with their dog, they want to be able to do

that again. We help they get back to normal activities. We take it one step further.” In the average year St. Mary’s Hospital provides 55 to 65 patients a year. “Our target for the ESD is about 20 clients per year on paper. This is above the regular numbers in stroke care,” explained Dana. “It doesn’t seem like a tremendous amount, but it will have a huge impact. We are on track to see many more than 20.” A person with a mild stroke would receive four to six weeks of ESD intensive rehabilitation. A moderate stroke care period would receive about six to eight weeks. “Those are soft windows and time framesthat can be adjusted as needed, or as appropriate if necessary,” said Melissa. “We want to use client goals, so they achieve success.” Melissa will be joined on the stroke rehabilitation team by clerk Bridget Lennartsson, therapy assistant Alanna Book, registered nurse Sarah Baker, social worker Nicole Gavelin, recreation therapist Kristine Smith, speech language pathologist Christina Rebus, physical therapist Dan Gillespie and occupational therapy Andrea Taeger. “Our team has really come together in a short time. It is a nice blend of talent,” said Dana. “It is great to have a mix of new staff with existing as it helps everyone examine how we can do things even better,” added Melissa. “We have a tremendous team with great depth in talent and it has been fun to see them come

together and do core building, which helps everyone.” With the addition of the ESD program St. Mary’s could turn into a centre of excellence. “People tend to gravitate to the place where they feel will get the best care,” said Dana. “Because we are a rural model we want to make sure we really support rural. It is not just a St. Mary’s based program. We partner with all of the other hospitals sites and try to elevate their practice and give guidelines.” Melissa hopes this will lead to more collaborations from area hospitals and rehab teams to help build their skill set and elevate their practice. “It is really motivating to see how appreciative and how excited the clients are to have you come into their homes. It takes a burden off families to receive such good service,” said Melissa. “Many stroke patients may have access to one or two of the areas of care. Now they have all the disciplines required to provide comprehensive acute stroke rehab in their home.” Up to 20 per cent of all stroke patients in Alberta are treated in rural or small urban centres. Establishing SUEC at 15 primary stroke centres will mean an additional 1,000 patients province wide will receive high level of stroke care by March 31, 2015. In addition, SUEC is expected to reduce mortality by 15 per cent and disability by five per cent provincially. Two-thirds of stroke survivors require some form of rehabilitation. Home-based rehabilitation has been shown to be both clinically-effective and cost-efficient when compared with hospital care for clients who are medically stable enough to be discharged. To provide this type of care, a Stroke Early Supported Discharge project is being established at St. Mary’s Hospital Camrose through the provincial SCN (Strategic Clinical Networks). The Stroke ESD team is accepting referrals for patients requiring stroke rehabilitation from acute care and rehabilitation units. For more information contact Dana at 780-6796115 or Melissa at 780679-3109.

Spring Classic Rodeo riding into Camrose April 25 to 27 By Murray Green

Spring will officially arrive later this month. The annual Camrose Spring Classic Rodeo will be held at the Camrose Regional Exhibition on April 25 to 27. “We changed the dates to April from March due to the weather (problems) every year, and because there was no rodeo for two weeks after,” said rodeo chair Ken Hildebrandt. “It was hard for the contestants because the main season felt like it hadn’t started yet. We were also competing against the local hockey finals and it was hard to get volunteers to commit time.” Camrose is now on the same weekend as the Cole-

man and Dawson Creek rodeos. “We feel this will work nicely for rodeo contestants who travel in a circuit,” said Ken. The change of dates was a complicated move because the facility, stock contractors, announcers and other factors had to be considered before finalizing the April dates. The rodeo will open with wild pony races for the children. The Wainwright Stampede Riders team will perform in the grand entry and the Graham Sisters Trick Riding duo is set to perform after the intermission. Les McIntyre will be the announcer.

Every performance has different competitors. “You will see just as good a show on Friday as you will on Sunday,” said Ken. “With the level of the entrants rising each year, every show is good. Even the slack run is very competitive.” The Spring Classic will feature three performance times. On Friday and Saturday the action begins at 7 p.m. and on Sunday the action begins at 2 p.m. A dance on Saturday night will feature Trinity Bradshaw on stage. The doors open at 9:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the CRE office, by calling 780-672-3640 or toll free at 1-800-296-8112.

Tickets still available for Celebrating Women By Dan Jensen

The 16th annual Celebrating Women’s Conference will be held at the Camrose Regional Exhibition this Friday. “We have more than 400 women coming from across Alberta,” said conference chair Jenn Filip. “Alberta Correctional Services has purchased 45 tickets.” The Celebrating Women’s Conference offers attendees the chance to listen to well-known speakers on a variety of timely and informative topics, as well as purchase a local products and services from vendors operating trade booths. “It is a personal and professional development day like no other,” said Filip, adding there are similar events in other parts of the province but none quite as big. The conference has grown fairly steadily since the first one in 1999. The biggest change occurred in 2007 when the location was moved from the banquet room to the arena side of CRE’s exhibition building, which served to increase both the number of participants and trade show vendors. “Over the last few years we have had 40 to 45 vendors,” said Filip. “Before that when we were on the banquet side the space was pretty limited.” New Cap Radio operations manager Jackie Rae Greening is the only mistress of ceremonies the conference has ever known. “She’s back again this year by popular demand,” explained Filip. “She’ll be providing a welcome starting at 8:45 a.m.” Award-winning story teller, motivational speaker, comedian and author of Who Hijacked My Fairy Tale, Kelly Swanson, will be the conference’s opening and closing speaker.

Celebrating Women mistress of ceremonies Jackie Rae Greening

“She loves to make people laugh, motivate them, encourage them to come out of their comfort zones, and teach them how to find what makes them unique and leverage that in life and in business,” states a biography. “Her hilarious and motivating shows have charmed audiences and tickled funny bones from coast to coast, from board rooms to cruise ships. When she’s not travelling the world helping people find their dreams and reach them, she’s a frazzled wife and mother in North Carolina trying to convince her family that chocolate is a food group.” Michelle Cederberg, who will speak at 10:45 a.m., is an in-demand author, health expert and life coach who empowers clients to break down the physical and emotional barriers that get in the way of growth in business and in life. She holds a

Masters in kinesiology, a BA in psychology, and a specialization in health and exercise psychology. She is also a certified exercise physiologist and a certified professional co-active life coach. “A natural storyteller, Michelle transports delighted audiences on a journey of truth and laughter that will empower them to optimize energy and health, find better work-life balance, and gain momentum toward the personal legacy they long to create,” states a biography. “Michelle is the author of three books. Her latest literary spark plug, Energy Now! Small Steps to an Energetic Life, shares her philosophy in an eye-opening and practical way, with methods that make a difference.” Lisa “Longball” Vlooswyk, who will speak at 1:45 p.m., is a seven-time Cana-

dian Long Drive Champion who is ranked number four in the world. She currently holds the Canadian women’s long drive record with a drive of 350 yards, which was previously a world record. She competes on the RCGA Canadian Women’s Tour and has competed in an LPGA Monday qualifier. In addition to hitting the long ball, Lisa is a golf journalist for several publications, including Inside Golf magazine, Score Golf and Traveling Golfer. She is a golf entertainer at corporate and charity tournaments across North America and has conducted clinics and was the keynote speaker at the PGA Tour’s Reno Tahoe Open and the Greater Hickory Classic, a Champions Tour event in North Carolina. “Lisa is a sought after speaker at corporate and association conferences,

conventions and meetings,” states a biography. “She believes strongly in women helping women and is proudly a born and raised Albertan.” A gourmet luncheon served by the CRE at 11:45 a.m. will be followed by a fashion show featuring items from six businesses. “The show has always been one of the most popular events at the conference,” said Filip. Aside from the sessions and entertainment, Celebrating Women’s Conference participants will have the opportunity to win merchandise and gift certificates from the door prize draws and “Women Helping Women” raffle. Money raised from the raffle will be donated to the Camrose Women’s Shelter and the Family Violence Action Society to assist with programming costs. The Celebrating Women’s Conference has always received heady praise, with one woman calling it the “most excellent day for women ever.” Another woman described it as the ultimate ladies’ day out. “It makes us feel good that we can put on an event that women can enjoy,” said Filip. “The information they receive can be applied in so many different situations, whether it is at work or at home.” Major diamond sponsors of the Celebrating Women’s Conference include Lou’s by Bellissima and the Canalta family of Hotels (Ramada and Super 8). Tickets for the conference are still available and may be purchased by calling the Camrose Regional Exhibition at 780672-3640.

Boogie Patrol stops at Bailey Theatre By Murray Green

The Boogie Patrol has created a blend of blues, funk, soul and rhythm and blues across Western Canada since 2007. The Edmonton band will be playing at the Bailey Theatre on April 11. The Boogie Patrol has captivated crowds wherever it goes with harmonica hound “Rott’n” Dan and accomplished guitarist Yuji Ihara leading the way. The band enlisted the help of experienced bassist Nigel Gale and JJ’s various drumming styles. Boogie Patrol’s distinctive style slowly evolved and now entices even the most hesitant dancer onto the floor. Band members – virtuosos of their craft – unite to create a sound,

an emotion, a chemistry that is incomparable. Boogie Patrol prides itself on the ability to connect with audiences from all walks of life. In 2011, Boogie Patrol had the honour of opening for both The Fabulous Thunderbirds as well as Blues legend Buddy Guy, both in Calgary and Edmonton. In early October 2012, Boogie Patrol won the Memphis Bound Blues Competition, which took the band to Memphis in January of 2013, representing Edmonton and Western Canada at the Blues Foundation’s 29th annual International Blues Challenge. Most recently, the band was nominated for a Maple Blues Award, Canada’s national blues awards program for 16

years running, in the category of New Artist or Group of the Year. With ventures into Eastern Canada and the United States, Boogie Patrol looks forward to extending its travels and playing for new audiences across North America. Although rooted in blues, the sound of the band crosses various genres. Still, Boogie Patrol has stayed true to its name and takes letting loose to a whole new level. In the words of Ric Hall, guitarist for Buddy Guy “Boogie Patrol is off the hook! They’re on fire!” Boogie patrol last played in Camrose at Scalliwags in 2011 in the Rose City Roots Society series. Tickets are now available at the Bailey Theatre box office.

Camerata celebrates with concert By Murray Green

Camrose Camerata will close its 10th anniversary celebration with a huge community concert on Sunday, April 13, 7 p.m. at Messiah Lutheran Church. Camrose Camerata will be joined by a guest orchestra and members of the Edmonton choir Vocal Alchemy in a concert entitled “Here and There, Now and Then” in honour of the choir’s celebration of 10 seasons.

Schubert’s Mass in G will be one of the featured works, with members of Edmonton’s Vocal Alchemy joining Camerata to create a choir of over 50 voices, accompanied by an orchestra from Camrose and Edmonton areas including Augustana instructor Thomas Schoen (violin), former instructor Joel Gray (trumpet), and local musicians Len Busse (trumpet), Tova Olson (organ) and Victoria Carlson (timpani).

Soloists for this work are former Camerata members Charlene Brown and Nick Andrew Sommer with current member Darryl Dewalt. “This relatively short Mass setting, written when Schubert was just 18, is a favourite for choirs and audiences alike, and is considered a great miniature treasure of chamber choir repertoire,” said director Joy-Anne Murphy.

Reeve gives update on Camrose County Police By Dan Jensen

Camrose County enjoyed considerable success in attracting new industries in 2013. “Thirty per cent of the permits taken out were for industrial development,” explained County Reeve Don Gregorwich in his annual address to the Camrose Chamber of Commerce at the Camrose Regional Exhibition April 2. “We had building permits taken out for a poultry processing plant, a meat processing plant, a couple of fertilizer storage facilities, gravel pits, high speed internet towers and obviously, the Cargill development.” Gregorwich showed slides indicating that the County took in more than $28 million in revenues, with 43.2 per cent of that coming from taxation, 17.6 per cent from fees for services, and 6.3 per cent from grants. “We took in nearly $4.5 million that went directly to the school foundation,” said the reeve. “We collect that money then we send it directly to Edmonton, which allocates it to the school systems.” Total County expenditures for 2013 were $27,590,000 with 28.9 per cent going to public works, 23.2 per cent going to capital projects, 16.9 per cent going to the Alberta School Foundation and 6.4 per cent going to agricultural services. “You can see from all the different categories that we are a complex organization,” said the reeve. “When you take a look at all those categories and put them all together you will see that really we have an effect on or we deal with literally every part of people’s lives, right from police and fire protection, seniors’ lodges, recreation, the school system, public works, our agricultural service board and so on.” The County is hoping to maintain 2014 taxes at the same level as they were last year despite the argument from some that it should be increasing taxes a little bit

Camrose County reeve Don Gregorwich

every year in the event a major problem comes along that requires a large tax increase. “That (zero per cent increase) is the strategy we have used so far,” said the reeve. “At this point when we send out our tax notices in May we don’t think there will be any increase in the mill rate.” The reeve noted that County assessors will be conducting physical evaluations of the properties in the northern part of the county. “They (physical assessments) rotate, so theoretically every five years you will receive a visit from our assessors.” The County plans to continue to support arts, culture and heritage in its communities through its legacy fund, and is working with Camrose Tourism to attract more tourism to the area. It has also passed a bylaw that requires gravel contractors to reclaim the gravel pits to a naturallooking state once they have been exhausted. “One of the challenges the County has faced over the years,” said the reeve, “is that when a gravel pit is exhausted there have been times when it has been left abandoned and the weeds grow up. With this bylaw there is no more of this disappearing into the sunset leaving behind a mess. That is our response to this particular situation.”

The reeve noted that the road work the County does every year is essential for those who are commuting or moving products, whether they be livestock or industry. “We have 2,500 km of roads to take care of,” he said. “That is the same as if you got in a car and drove to Winnipeg and then thankfully were able to drive back.” Camrose County has been trying to provide good, safe potable water to as many communities as possible. “We try do that by means of being members of three water commissions to bring water into our hamlets,” said the reeve. “We are especially grateful to the City of Camrose for their initiative and cooperation in providing water for us to take to the hamlet of Ohaton and for 29 people along the way. That has been a terrific development that has come along there. People in those areas now finally have a good quality supply of water.” The County built a spillway at Tillicum Beach in 2013 to remedy problems that exist with water due to the slopes. “We designed it so that the water comes down from the top of Tillicum beach and runs through this cement culvert,” said the reeve. “The force (of the water) is broken up by the jagged rocks, and that helps protect people’s property and helps protect

the road, which was forever being washed away.” Camrose County promotes and encourages viable agriculture through the agricultural service board, which operates out of the County seed cleaning plant in Camrose. “It operates a great many programs, large and small, from agricultural efforts in grain and livestock production to working with acreages and farm yards,” said the reeve. “More and more we have people who are concerned about developing their yards and who have problems with trees and so on, so now we have an arborist on staff who works with our residents if they have problems with trees.” A program that will be undertaken by the agricultural service board again this summer, said the reeve, is the cutting of grass along the roads. “We do that for a number of reasons. You don’t want four feet of grass growing on the side of the road that the deer can come flying out of. It also helps with the snowplow operations in the winter time.” Camrose County is proud to have a number of parks, including the nature centre, which is a reclaimed gravel pit. “I know a lot of people travel a long ways to go there,” said the reeve. “It is a good place to spend an afternoon or a day. We have fish planted there and there are campsites and so on for daytime camping only.” The reeve expressed appreciation to the City of Camrose and other surrounding communities for not only the cooperation they have shown but the commitment they have to work ing collaboratively. “We need to have a hand in glove attitude between the two of us and we do,” he said. “We have a lot of agreements in different areas, ranging from protection, water and sewer planning, recreation and so on.”

issue warning By Dan Jensen

Camrose Police Service is encouraging city businesses to steer clear of a potentially fraudulent business that uses telemarketing to sell online WHMIS training. “A local business reported that the sales representative was overly aggressive and the call seemed suspicious,” said Const. Matthew Wilton, Crime Prevention Officer, Camrose Police Service. “The sales representative attempted to use shady tactics to sell the product by stating to the business that it was in violation of Canadian regulations and that the training was required immediately. The local business conducted its own due diligence by contacting the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety, which advised that there are several companies known to be using deceitful sales techniques surrounding Canadian WHMIS regulations. An internet search showed that the WHMIS business was not accredited through the Better Business Bureau. Other information was found that outlined a number of complaints of shady sales tactics similar to what was reported to police.” Camrose Police Service notes it is always a good idea to be diligent when dealing with unsolicited sales requests. “The number of businesses that utilize shady tactics in efforts to sell their products is endless and it is always recommended that proper research be done before any financial information is transferred,” said Const. Wilton.

City council gives approval to telecommunications tower By Dan Jensen

City council has approved an application from Altus Group Ltd. on behalf of T.M. Mobile (Telus) to place a 30 metre communications tower on property owned by Century Meadows Baptist Church. Telus identified the need for a new tower based on network analysis conducted by a radio-frequency engineer. Camrose is currently served by two tower sites located at the intersection of 49 Avenue and 52 Street and north of the intersection of 48 Avenue and Range Road 204.

“The proposed site is needed to improve signal quality, address data and voice capacity deficiencies in the southern portion of Camrose,” said Altus Group site acquisition lead Steve Gitao in a letter to City director of building and planning services Shelley Munro. Telus notified residents within a 90 metre radius of the tower site and 60 metres from the property boundary, as requested by the City of Camrose, and conducted an open house at the Norsemen Inn last November with represen-

tatives from the City, Telus and Altus in attendance. Of the four people who attended, two residents registered written approval with the tower location, expressing concerns as to what it would do with surrounding property values and how it would affect the area’s aesthetics. “The concerns of neighbouring property owners in the majority of these type of applications are those of health, property values and aesthetics,” explained Munro. “It appears there is no direct evidence of towers having

an adverse effect to the particular concerns of the neighbouring property owners.” Telus did ask about the possibility of locating the tower on adjacent lands owned by the City, only to be told that the parcel (of City land) would be unavailable for several reasons, chief among them a “potential sterilization of future residential lands and the City has not completed an area structure plan for the site.” The telecommunications tower will not require cables for support and the

nearby berm is not expected to hinder construction. The site will be screened with solid fencing to enhance the appearance. Telus feels that meaningful public consultation has been undertaken for the siting of the tower. “Telus believes that the current proposed location is best suited to optimize the cellular network and provide improved coverage in Camrose,” said Gitao. The siting of telecommunications installations is federally regulated by Industry Canada.

Atom girls capture league playoffs By Murray Green The Camrose Wildcats atom girls hockey team won the North Central Minor Hockey Association league trophy. Camrose placed first in regular season play and then capped off a great season with a 1-0 overtime victory in the final game to garner the championship banner. The team of 17 players worked hard all year to reach their goal. “We are the first atom girls team to win a girls’ league, so we are proud of that accomplishment,” said coach Kathy Watters. “We played against teams from Fort Saskatchewan, Hobbema, Stettler and Lacoka (Lacombe-Ponoka) in the league. We only tied one and lost one in 16 league games. In playoffs, we beat Hobbema in two games in the first round of the playoffs and then beat Stettler in the final.” This was the first year the Camrose atom girls played in an all-girls league. “Girls hockey at the atom age is still pretty new, especially outside of the larger cities,” Kathy said. “We didn’t have to travel too far in league play and by the end of the year we were getting some better competition. These girls just excelled. The number of girls playing is growing, we just need to keep them throughout the age groups.” Next season Camrose wants to ice a team in all four age divisions – atom, peewee, bantam and midget. “We had to play against Strathcona to see which team advanced to provincials and we won that playoff. We did okay at provincials in Calgary. We had lots of nerves, but we didn’t lose all of the games. The experience will make them better hockey players next season and they are already talking about that,” shared Kathy. The team will likely see a split in the players as over half will move on to peewee. “If I coach again next year, it will be at the atom level again,” added Kathy. “I’m there anyway, so I might as well help out, whether it is as head coach or helping out.” The Wildcats had some new players to all-girls hockey, but the play allowed them to improve their confidence. “Everyone loved it and the team was pretty tightknit,” said Kathy. “They loved the social atmosphere, as well as hockey. It was a good year. “We also went to the Stettler tournament in December where we won

Camerata concert Continued from page 19 Camerata has incorporated works by contemporary composers throughout its 10 years of performing. “This concert takes that a step further, or rather a step closer, with works by composers with a Camrose connection, including two newly written compositions,” said Joy-Anne. Current local composers featured are Milton Schlosser, Tova Olson and James Neff, and current Camerata members Joshua Mohr and Darryl Dewalt. Featured former Camrosians are Kyle

Harland, Nick Andrew Sommer, former Augustana choir director Marc Hafso and his father Gordon Hafso, who attended what was then Camrose Lutheran College. Join Camerata as they explore a wealth of vibrant music by local living composers, delving into the sacred and the everyday, the ancient and the new. The audience is invited to join the choirs for an informal reception following the concert. Tickets are available in advance from choir members, or at the door.

By Grace Doucet May we begin with a metaphor? Just as a carefully curated garden contains a blend of perennials and annuals, the key fashion trends this spring showcase trends which reappear each time the weather turns warm. Luckily, there are some fresh ideas coming to light for the first time. Three classic examples of the “perennials” on trend this season are the Nautical, Floral and Global Traveller references seen on many runways this spring. Nautical references call to mind yachting, military and sport culture and, as the weather begins to turn fine, we see a return of classic stripes, crisp whites and gold accents. Fine tailoring on trench coats and staples such as clean oxford-style shirting abound. To make your look fresh, try

to incorporate at least one print that you wouldn’t see on a flagpole, such as a floral scarf on a striped dress, while keeping accessories clean and classic. The diversity of floral prints runs the gamut from large, lush tropical blooms to unabashedly pretty and delicate to complex, computer-generated flowers. This trend is huge. Take your pick of the bunch, mix with fresh pastels like mint and blush, and brighten up the early days of spring. The idea of wearing eclectic pieces of clothing and accessories gleaned from many cultures has probably been a part of the fashion lexicon since the first trade caravans brought silk out of India. This year the focus is ‘60s-esque – unfussy blendings of prints, colors, fringes, chevrons, tiedyes, tassels and tribal prints. By contrast, two of the newest trend incarnations are minimalist black and white, and “luxury sport” looks. These

Up to

50% OFF looks haven’t been seen since the ‘80s and ‘90s and are managing to look incredibly fresh and new by playing with unexpected fabrics and proportions. Key details of the minimalist movement are monochromatic dressing and sheer or semi-sheer fabrics layered to show skin or sporty undergarments like bandeau tops. As regards the new sporty-lux looks, designers have revisited sportswear and left behind a trail of mesh, neonbrights, metalics, neoprene and racing stripes, but the goal here is NOT to look like you are on your way to the gym. It’s to elevate sporty pieces into fun, interesting, bright and comfortable looks that can be worn for day or night.

“Fashion is an intersection between art and the everyday” Colors, prints and historic references all play together in the massive forum of self-expression that has become “fashion”, but for the bravest sartorialists, the greatest delight this spring will be to test the new proportions in clothing. Hemlines have truly become a realm where anything goes. Another twist on this skirt is the highlow, which is shorter in the front than in the back. The cropped top, while not a look for every woman, is back this season in boxier cuts that emphasise the waist. Wide, swingy pants have also made a delightful comeback – who doesn’t like to feel their pant swish around their legs as they walk? Fashion is an intersection between art and the everyday and, as usual for spring, the main emphasis is on uncovering a bit, unwrapping after a long winter and revealing the feminine colors, prints and silhouettes that make it all fun. Celebrate the return of the sun, the beauty of the female body, and the power and drama of a grand costume. I’m going to put on my swishiest skirt. See you outside!

Local players attend Alberta Cup hockey tournament By Murray Green

Eight zone hockey teams will compete for the ATB Alberta Cup from April 24 to 27 in Strathmore. Each roster is made up of 20 athletes, three coaches, one trainer and one director of operations from each zone. “The ATB Alberta Cup is always an exciting event, especially since this is the last chance for these players to impress ahead of the WHL bantam draft,” said Michael Kraichy, manager of hockey development with Hockey Alberta. “These athletes competed hard last weekend at zone camps and it seems like the 1999-born players are going to give everyone quite a show in Strathmore.” The eight zone teams will play in a four day, tournament format competition while also taking part in an education seminar put on by the Western Hockey League (WHL). Team Northeast has three Camrose players on the squad. Forwards Parker Kelly, Kyler Kupka and Ethan McIndoe all made the team. They will be familiar with Brandon Heck of Camrose, who will be an assistant coach for Team Northeast. Local coach mentor Gary Syndmiller will be working closely with coach Tim Green on the Edmonton South club. Cody Laskosky of New Norway and Logan Ganie of Irma will suit up for the Team Central squad in the tournament. The ATB Alberta Cup program begins in March each year with over 800 players trying out at their respective zone camp. Each of the 160 athletes playing in the ATB Alberta Cup are competing for one of 80 invites to the U16 Male Provincial Camp in July. The tournament is the premier event in the province that helps identify the top male players in Alberta. In addition to player evaluations, the competition is also an opportunity for administrators, coaches, trainers and officials to be evaluated for future positions with the Team Alberta Program. Former ATB Alberta Cup graduates include current NHLers Braden Holtby, Devin Setoguchi, Zach Boychuk, Kyle Brodziak, Dany Heatley, Jay Bouwmeester, Dion Phaneuf, Scott Hartnell, Jordan Eberle, Devan Dubnyk, Andrew Ference and Chris Phillips.

Camrose Minor Ball preparing for busy season By Murray Green Despite snow still being on the ground, Camrose Minor Ball Association (CMBA) started spring training and competitive team tryouts at the Camrose Community Center (field house) last weekend. “Over the last five years we have had a steady increase of registrations. We had about 370 last year and we already have 350 this year. We expect to have as many as last year or have a slight increase,” said CMBA president George Marcinkowski. “We increase by about 10 to 20 players every year. We have online registration, so some people will still register.” Of those 350, about 100 are signed up for girls’ softball. “The numbers for softball are up this year,” said George. “Learn to play is for both baseball and softball. We started a new program this year in softball called mini-mites, which caters to the six and seven year olds, who will probably move on to mites softball. We have had a great response with about 30 registered for that already. We experienced

dwindling numbers, so this is a way of getting it back up again.” Currently CMBA is trying to formulate the number of teams they will field this season. “We will likely have about eight teams on the softball side and 30 teams in baseball,” said George. “We will have five competitive and five community teams in baseball from mosquito to bantams.” Camrose will not field a midget team this year. “It is looking promising for the future because we will have three bantam clubs this year. Our goal is to keep them playing, so we can have a midget team. Two years ago we had one bantam team and last year we had two. With three this year it is starting to look good. We had six that wanted to play midget, but we let the parents know early that we wouldn’t have enough so they could look for places to play. It was a hard, tough decision.” For softball, the new mini-mites will form a local team to practice and play each other. “The mites to bantams

are in the process of deciding what league to play in. On the baseball side, Rally Cap, Learn to Play and Rookies will be held in Camrose. The competitive teams will play in a travelling league with tournaments. They will be tiered through Baseball Alberta. Our community team will join the Battle River league and play against, Sedgewick, Heisler, Killam and who ever has teams east of us,” George explained. The growing numbers are making it increasingly difficult to facilitate all the teams. “We have to work along side slowpitch and two men’s teams as well,” said George. “We are quickly running out of diamond space and we are trying to spearhead talks with the City to build new diamonds. In the short term, with three bantams teams, we need to convert a diamond to a bantam field. Long term, we need a another quadstyle diamonds. We are bursting at the seems and making use of school diamonds.” It would be easier to attract provincials and high

level tournaments if several age groups could host on the same weekend. “It would benefit not only the ball program, but we would bring in a lot more people to Camrose on the weekend, which is good for the whole city,” explained George. “Baseball Alberta has mentioned that we are in a great central location for teams to come here, but our facilities are not quite up to the criteria, or par, so that is what we have to work on.” Minor ball wants the players to keep playing the sport well into their lives, whether that is in slowpitch or men’s baseball. “It would be nice to keep everyone active and staying fit,” George said. “We want to be an active community and it all starts with the young players.” On April 11, 12 and 13 tryouts for the second tier teams for mosquito, peewee, and bantam will be selected. Also on the same weekend, the rookie, mosquito community, peewee community and bantam community teams will be evaluated for team placement. Athletes are asked to

be there 15 minutes prior to the sessions and must be ready to go at start time. Players should bring a ball glove, batting helmet, jock or jill, ball cap and indoor runners. The Rally Cap and Learn to Play teams will be split up by the directors of each division once coaches are put in place. At that time coaches will be given contact info to reach all the parents for start dates, which is usually first week in May, but everyone should be informed by late April. CMBA is accepting applications for all coaches for community baseball teams. This includes Rally Cap, Rookie, Mosquito, Peewee, and Bantam. “We are looking for coaches of all levels and are always looking for beginner coaches to help out as assistants,” said George. “We will help you get started and give direction to getting you started if you are new to coaching.” Minor ball is also looking for more umpires for the upcoming season.

On March 19, 2014, at the age of 94, Rolf Johannes Jacobsen was called to join the heavenly choir. Born on December 27, 1919 at Loreburn, SK, Rolf was the fifth of 12 children born to Kristian and Inga Jacobsen. In 1933, the family moved to Weldon, SK, then to Vancouver in 1941. It was there that Rolf met “the best girl in the world,” Inga Moan from Sedgewick, AB. They were married in Bethania Lutheran Church at Sedgewick on September 24, 1944. After starting their married life in Vancouver, Rolf, Inga and son Ken heeded the call of the land and moved to Sedgewick in 1948 to take up farming. Here the family grew to include six more children. Rolf and Inga retired to town in 1986. Following Inga’s death in 1999, Rolf moved to Camrose in 2003. After a brief second marriage, he moved into Stoney Creek Lodge where he was very happy and made many dear friends. Failing health necessitated his move to long term care in Viking in September where he resided until his passing. Music was a huge part of Rolf’s life. He began singing alto in the church choir at age 10. Throughout the years, his voice changed from alto to a clear, high tenor, and later to a rich baritone. He sang as a soloist, in choirs, quartets and, later, duets with Inga and trios with Inga and Helen. Some of his most treasured memories were the 17 years he was a member of the Walter Jahns Singers in Forestburg. Children were a joy to Rolf and they seemed to recognize that it didn’t matter if they were his child, a neighbour, a Sunday school student or whoever, they were important to him. It bothered him greatly when it became necessary to warn children “not to talk to strangers.” Rolf believed strongly in being involved in church and community affairs. A long-time member of Bethania Lutheran Church, he served in many capacities in the congregation, as well as on the national board of the ELCIC. Over the years, he was a member of several committees and boards in the community and surrounding area. Rolf will be deeply missed by his rascals: Elaine (Alex) Hlushak of Chipman, Helen Sather (Larry Gerber) of Daysland, Marilyn (Ed) Palmer of Saskatoon, Lyndon (Diane) Jacobsen of Viking, Kris Jacobsen of Wainwright and daughter-in-law Phyllis Jacobsen of Sedgewick. Grandpa J is lovingly remembered by 12 grandchildren and their families: Gary, Bea Jae, Bradley, Courtney, Luke and Lacey Jacobsen; Craig Jacobsen, Angela Price and sons Dayton and Beau; Jennifer Evers, Sean Hibbs and Jorgia; Anna-Ruth Connolly, Sasha (John) and Aydan; Kathryn, David, Rachel and Meghan Heudepohl; Neil, Shelly, Christen and Lucas Sather; Kristian, Juliana, Ananda and Nikolas Jacobsen; Kyle Jacobsen, Alicia Matosevic and Heidi; Rhea and Travis Strickland; Sarah, Jimmy, Lars, Dagne, Odin and Hjordis St. Arnault; Abby Palmer and fiancé Jordan Terry; and Sandra, Wayne, Breanna and Davin Codd. He is also survived by sisters Signe Thomassen, Rita (Peder) Andreasen and Gwen (Jim) Muri; and sisters-in-law Margaret Jacobsen, Myrtle Olson and Anna (Morris) Kaardal. Rolf was predeceased by his parents; brothers Erling, Carl and Irvin; sisters Dagny Sorenson, Ella Haave, Helga Torgerson, Una Haugen and Jean Kerr; his beloved Inga; sons Kenneth and Loren Jacobsen; grandsons Rolf Hlusak and Michael Jacobsen; son-in-law Eldon Sather; and daughters-in-law Merri and Lori-Ann Jacobsen. Following a family burial at Bethania Cemetery on March 26, 2014, a celebration of Rolf’s life was held at Messiah Lutheran Church, Camrose with Pastors Alvin Sorenson and Bev Swanson officiating. Fee & Sons, Killam, were in charge of arrangements. In his life, Rolf loved much and was much loved in return. He will be greatly missed by many. Blessed be his memory.

June 6, 1923 – March 29, 2014 A hole is left in our lives with the passing of our precious mother, grandmother and friend, Frances Elliott. We will all miss the balm of her abiding interest in us and in life, and the affection that she showered upon us. Frances grew up in Guelph, ON. As a student, she excelled academically, completing grade 12 by age 15, but for financial reasons she was unable to attend university. A young woman during World War II, Frances worked as a secretary for some time, eventually taking a job at Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph as secretary to the Dean. It was at a dance that she met Red Elliott, a prairie boy and young navy veteran training to become a veterinarian. As their relationship blossomed, they nurtured a vision of establishing a family and a loving and supportive home life. They married the day after Red’s graduation and she moved with him to Camrose to run a country large and small animal veterinary practice. Fran’s office career stood her in good stead in the life she embraced in Camrose. While, as the animal doctor, Red was the central figure, she oversaw the veterinary office and did the bookkeeping for the business and for Red’s farm interests and they were truly partners in all of their undertakings. Fran also took an active part in numerous church committees and extended her influence into the community where she was a charter member of Camrose Children’s Centre, the group that spearheaded the opening of the town’s first daycare. She was an elected member of Camrose School Board for nine years, serving two terms as Chair; Jack Stuart School was built on her watch. Camrose Business and Professional Women’s Club named her ‘Woman of the Year’ in the early 1990s. Fran and Red were honored as ‘Community Builders’ by the Battle River Community Foundation in 2006 in recognition of all that they gave to their community. The Foundation established a Fund in their names at that time. With her warm generosity and genuine concern, Frances was a devoted friend, a loving matriarch and an inspiring role model. She was a pie-maker of renown and there was always room at her table for one or two more. She traveled to several places in the world including India, England, Hawaii, Hong Kong, the Northwest Territories and Newfoundland, and when the world came to Camrose as high school students from Hong Kong, as friends from Hobbema (Maskwacis), and as refugees from Vietnam and Yugoslavia, she welcomed them all. Over the years, Frances’ family expanded to include a great number of people: children Anne (Mike), Rob (Debbie), John (Anne), Howard (Janet) and Eric (Cindy); grandchildren Elizabeth (Raymond), Mary, Patrick, Mark, Lisa, Graham, Maren, Oliver, Casey, Miles (Melissa) and Erin (Jade); great-grandchildren Nola, John and Zuzu; step-grandchildren Alita, Nathan, Michelle and Aura; step great-grandchild Aiden; plus brother Andrew, sister Elizabeth (Roy), brother-in-law Bob, nieces and nephews, and a host of ‘adopted’ kids and friends. Frances was pre-deceased by her beloved husband and soulmate Dr. Red Elliott; brothers Eric and Rob Hall; and grandson Thomas Hudson.  The family wishes to thank the caring staff at Sunrise Village and Camrose Home Care who befriended and assisted Fran in the last year of her life, as well as her physician Dr. Ernie Hilderman and the staff of the Louise Jensen Centre.  A funeral service was held on Saturday, April 5, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. from Camrose United Church (4829-50 Street, Camrose, AB) with Alan Richards and Mary Ann Pastuck officiating.  Inurnment will take place in Valleyview Cemetery, Camrose at a later date. Memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to Camrose United Church (4829-50 Street, Camrose, AB T4V 1P6) or the Red and Fran Elliott Fund c/o Battle River Community Foundation (Box 1122, Camrose, AB T4V 4E7).

Improve your vision for a safer ride By Dan Jensen

As the motor vehicle industry continues to evolve, the emphasis drivers and manufacturers place on safety continues to increase. But even though technological advancements have vastly improved driver safety, accidents still happen. One of the more concerning trends with regards to traffic accidents is when they occur. In spite of the fact that there are five times as many motorists during the day, statistics indicate that one-third of all accidents and roughly half of all traffic fatalities occur at night. Though that might seem counterintuitive, this peculiarity can largely be traced to a driver’s visual acuity, which is reduced by 70 percent at night. Simply put, the human eye is not adapted for nocturnal vision, so drivers must take steps to improve their vision and visibility within their vehicle. The following are just a few of the ways drivers can do just that. Replace headlight bulbs every two years

Addressing automobile lighting is one of the most under performed vehicle maintenance tasks. “Many drivers do not even consider replacing their headlight bulb until it fails,” said Dave Jewell, from Canadian Tire. “But as a bulb ages, its light output is drastically reduced by a host of factors, including humidity, electrical resistance and filament fatigue.” Industry experts recommend replacing headlight bulbs every two years, and motorists should add bulb inspection and/or replacement to their list of routine maintenance tasks.

2014 Sierra HD Hard working, unmistakable styling

Pete Pastuck By Dan Jensen

The 2014 Sierra 2500 and 3500 HD trucks at McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC in Camrose work hard and do it with unmistakable GMC style. Sierra 2500HD and 3500 models are distinguished by a power dome-style hood with a louvered design, as well as a wide grille with chrome accents and full-width chrome steel front bumper. A lineup of 17- (Dually), 18- and 20-inch wheel/tire combinations are offered. Heated outside mirrors are available on all models, while heated outside and power-adjustable vertical camper-style mirrors with turn signal indicators are available on 2500HD SLE, SLT and Denali, and standard on 3500 HD SLE, SLT and Denali models. Interior

Sierra HD models are designed to be comfortable and convenient while on the job, including numerous storage compartments that provide covered access for everything from work gloves to laptops. For those who work out of their truck, Sierra HDs serve as mobile workspaces,

offering mobile WiFi as a dealer-installed option, USB connectivity, Bluetooth for phone connectivity, Sirius XM Satellite Radio and a navigation system. Multiple charge points enable multiple electronic devices to operate simultaneously. Cold weather customers warm up more quickly with the Duramax 6.6 litre engine, which has a starting time on part with gas engines. Its glow plug cycle time takes no more than three seconds in temperatures as low as minus 29 Celsius. Power adjustable pedals are standard on Denali and available on SLE and SLT models. Front bucket seats with 10-way power driver and passenger seat adjusters are standard on SLT models. Front bucket seats with six-way power adjusters are available on SLE models. Leather-appointed and heated and cooled front seats are standard on Denali models and available on SLT. Powertrains

A Vortec 6.0 litre gas V-8 with variable valve timing is matched with the HydraMatic 6L90 six-speed auto-

matic transmission as the standard powertrain across the Sierra HD model range. This combination delivers excellent performance and efficiency with an emphasis on low-rpm performance. It is rated at 360 horsepower (268 kW) and 380 lb.-ft of torque (515 Nm). The bi-fuel version of the 6.0 litre engine – known by its LC8 engine code – features special hardened valves and valves seats that enables it to run on compressed natural gas or gasoline. The Duramax 6.6 diesel and Allison 1000 six-speed transmission powertrain combination is available on all 2500HD and 3500 HD models. Highlights of the Duramax dieselolo include: 397 horsepower (296 kW) at 3,000 rpm, 765 lb.-ft. of torque (1,037 Nm) at 1,600 rpm; high-pressure Piezo-actuated fuel system for greater fuel efficiency; improved performance and reduced emissions; an exhaust brake system that enables controlled vehicle slowdown on downhill grades without actuating the brakes; a selective catalytic reduction after-treatment system using diesel exhaust fluid injection to provide the

best overall diesel characteristics and performance – with a range of about 8,000 km between DEF refills. Combustion and aftertreatment have been optimized to provide about 1,125 km between diesel particulate filter regenerations – a 75 per cent improvement over the previous system. The Allison 1000 features driver shift control with tap up/tap down shifting and a patented elevated idle mode cab warm-up feature. Also, the two-haul mode reduces shift cycling for better control and improved cooling when towing or hauling heavy loads. Chassis and suspension

All Sierra HD models featured fully-boxed frame assemblies – 18 different assemblies that accommodate all of the range’s configurations. The front sections are hydroformed.. The front gross axle weight rating of 2,721 kg enables a snow plow to be used on all 4WD cab configurations with the available snow plow prep package. Five different torsion bar rates support five different front gross axle weight ratings to help stabilize the range of

trim heights of various models under load while enhancing appearance, handling, durability, tire wear and alignment. The trim height is adjusted on each bar via a single bolt, easily allowing the height to be changed to account for the weight of a snow plow or other accessories. Safety

Sierra has a strong body structure to absorb crash energy and provide a protective safety cage around occupants. Head curtain side air bags with rollover protection and seat mounted sideimpact air bags for driver and right-front passenger are standard on Denali models with single rear wheels and available on other Sierra HD models. The roofmounted head curtain air bags include design features that provide increased rollover protection and occupant containment, while the seatmounted air bags provide thorax and pelvic protection. See the 2014 Sierra 2500 and 3500 HD trucks at McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC at 385048 Avenue, Camrose. Phone 780-672-2355 and ask for one of the friendly sales professionals.

Seasonal Maintenance Improve your vision Package Continued from page 30 Upgrade your headlight bulbs

Service includes:

Perhaps the best way drivers can improve nocturnal vision is to upgrade their headlight bulbs. “Some of the new headlight bulbs put out more light and create longer beam patterns than the standard halogen bulb,” said Jewell. “There is even a special headlight bulb for motorcycles that not only improves vision but creates a unique orange reflection that helps distinguish the motorcycle from other vehicles on the road.”

• Lube, oil (5W/20 or 30) and filter

Similar to headlight bulbs, wiper blades are often overlooked when it comes to vehicle maintenance. “Industry experts recommend wiper blades should be replaced at the change of each season or on three month intervals,” said Jewell. “That’s because the longer a wiper blade is on the vehicle, the more brittle and ineffective it becomes, putting drivers and passengers at risk.”

3 Battery 3 Fluids 3 Air Filter

Inspect and replace wiper blades when necessary

Clean interior glass and mirrors.

Another way to improve visibility is to clean interior glass to remove any film buildup that can reduce vision and create a hazy reflection from the sun. “This is especially important for motorists who smoke in the car, as this film is typically thicker,” said Jewell. “When addressing interior glass, take the time to adjust all side and rearview mirrors properly to cover all of the views around the car, especially the blind spots.”

Maintaining your tires


Worn tire treads increase the risk of punctures, which can lead to blowouts. Bald tires also may blowout as a result of friction on roadways that is met with minimal rubber. Getting caught on the side of the road with a tire blowout can be a hassle, so routinely check tire treads and replace tires accordingly. Tread depth

Average new tires on cars usually start with 10/32 inch to 11/32 inch of original tread depth. When tread reaches a depth of 2/32 inch, they are considered worn out. There are different ways to gauge tread depth. Insert a penny into the tread groove with the queen’s head upside down and facing you. If you can see all of the queen’s head, it is time to replace the tires. Another coin test is to insert a quarter into the groove. If the tread touches the queen’s head, you have at least 4/32 inch of tread left. Don’t have any currency on hand? Then look at the tread wear indicator bar molded into the tires. When these bars become flush with the adjacent ribs of the tire, the tires should be replaced. Alignment

Improper alignment causes rapid or uneven tread wear. Tires should be aligned and balanced periodically to avoid irregular wear and having to replace tires prematurely. Tread pattern

Tires feature different tread patterns depending on the brand of tire. They may be directional, asymmetrical, nondirectional, and directional/asymmetrical. When purchasing replacement tires, it is advisable to match the tread pattern to the existing tires. This helps enhance the per-

Tires are the link between a vehicle and the roadway, and tire quality has a direct impact on the performance and safety of an automobile. But tire maintenance is easy to overlook. However, ignoring tire maintenance can threaten driver and passenger safety and make a vehicle operate inefficiently. Steering, breaking ability and traction are all governed by good tires. Worn tread can result in longer stopping times and make it difficult to brake immediately in an emergency situation. Although driving tends to be the primary culprit behind worn down tires, sometimes bald or unevenly worn out tread is indicative of a larger problem, such as a misaligned wheelbase, improperly aligned tires or tires that are under inflated. The following are some common problems associated with tires and how to address these issues should they arise.

Before you hire a mechanic Few decisions weigh as heavily on automobile owners as their choice of mechanic. A good mechanic goes a long way toward ensuring drivers and their passengers stay safe on the road and that those drivers’ vehicles perform at their peak for years to come. That’s an important role to play, and it’s why many drivers acknowledge that choosing a mechanic is a decision that should not be taken lightly.

Rest assured you don’t need to be a car guy or gal to find a trustworthy and talented mechanic. You might just need to open a dialogue with a prospective mechanic, discussing a handful of topics that can help you feel more comfortable and know you have made the right choice in automotive service provider once a final decision has been made. Certification

Certification can go a long way toward helping

drivers find mechanics they can trust. A certified technician should have his or her credentials readily available to prospective customers, and these credentials list each professional’s area of certification. When shopping for a new mechanic, make sure that he or she is ASE-certified. In addition, discuss with the mechanic his or her work history, including any additional areas of expertise.

When you get a recall When a recall is announced, drivers may not have to immediately visit a dealership to have the problem corrected. Owners should wait for an official letter. The letter will narrow down which vehicles are affected. There should be a specific window of time pre-

sented in which the vehicle can be repaired. Vehicle owners are urged to pay attention to the performance of their cars or trucks to see if they are exhibiting any problem. If so, schedule an appointment for repair according to the recall instructions provided.

Customer Driven Quality Focused

Hiring a mechanic Continued from page 38

Many mechanics offer free estimates, but that should not be taken for granted. When bringing a car in for an estimate, drivers should confirm with the mechanic who will conduct the examination if the estimate is free or if they will be charged an inspection fee. In addition to any fees

regarding estimates, drivers should also inquire about labor costs and the payment policies at the facility.

Replacing parts on a vehicle is a cause for concern for many drivers, and rightfully so. Consumer advocacy groups have exposed many mechanics who pass off used auto parts as new parts,


charging their customers new part prices along the way. While thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no way drivers can guarantee they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fall victim to such

criminal behavior, they can inquire about company policies regarding vehicle parts. Documentation

When interviewing pro-

spective mechanics, ask if they are willing to provide detailed documentation of any work they do on your vehicle.

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.

PCN given business plan approval By Murray Green

The approval by Alberta Health of Camrose Primary Care Network’s (PCN) business plan for 2014 to 2017 on March 28 is good news for patients referred to PCN from the Bashaw Clinic, Daysland Medical Clinic, Forestburg Clinic, Gemini Health Centre and Smith Clinic. “Overall, our priority initiatives will remain the same with a focus on prevention, chronic disease management, obstetrics and newborn care, geriatrics and palliative care,” reported Stacey Strilchuk, PCN executive director. “The Camrose PCN will also continue to support the Camrose and Area Physician Attraction and Retention Committee.” New programs and services during the next three years will focus on pediatric weight management and women’s health. “Both elements were identified in our communities as part of the 2013 Camrose PCN town hall sessions and stakeholder consultation sessions,” said Stacey. “At this time I am anticipating both programs to be operational by this fall.” To achieve quality outcomes, Camrose PCN family physicians, health care providers and administration work in partnership with governance partners in Alberta Health Services (AHS). In addition the PCN partners with community stakeholders like Covenant Health St. Mary’s Hospital to offer coordinated care that is patient centered. “I want to take this opportunity to thank AHS and Covenant Health for working with the Camrose PCN and I look forward to future opportunities,” said Stacey. The PCN board of directors, including Dr. Nichol, Dr. Peters, Dr. Letley, Dr. Niemann and Dr. Bredesen will be meeting with the PCN multi-disciplinary team in mid-April to further review the results of the Primary Care and You survey and to begin prioritizing PCN goals and objectives with the goals and objectives of AH, AHS and the Alberta Medical Association. “Be assured, however, the Camrose PCN will continue to build off the foundation of ‘local solutions for local needs,’ which has served our PCN communities and patients well in the past,” said Stacey. If you have any comments or questions regarding the Camrose PCN, Stacey may be reached at 780-608-4927 or A listing of PCN programs and services can be found on the website www.

Postage rates increased


Employment Opportunity

By Dan Jensen

Small businesses are paying substantially more for postage than their big counterparts under the new postage rates implemented by Canada Post last week. Stamp booklets, usually purchased by individuals and smaller companies, have shot up from 63 cents per stamp to 85 cents, while the cost of single stamps has increased to a dollar. The cost per stamp for large volume mailers has increased from 69 cents to just 70 cents. Postage metre users have been given a discount of 10 cents per stamp. The price hikes affect 98 per cent of small firms that send letter mail and outweigh the measures that were taken by Canadian Post two weeks ago to reduce the pressure on business owners, including temporary discounts on stamps and making bulk mail more accessible to small businesses. The discounts have been criticized by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, which has said they are not good enough. “Canada Post is supposed to provide public postal service for all and that includes fair prices for all,” said CUPW national president Denis Lemelin at March 31 press conference with NDP MP Alexandre Boulerice. The Canadian Federation of Independent Business has gone on record as stating the rate hikes will hasten, rather than slow the decline in Canada Post usage for small businesses. “Rather than focus on raising prices for its customers, Canada Post should be allowed to reduce its costs more aggressively to ensure its relevance for the future,” said CFIB president Dan Kelly. CFIB was given the opportunity to review the new rates with a House of Commons parliamentary committee after they were announced last December. CFIB also submitted a report to federal labour minister Lisa Raitt, including the results of a member survey on the rate changes and the overall importance of Canada Post to small businesses. Canada Post plans to eliminate all door-to-door mail delivery, a move that will involve the loss of up to 8,000 postal worker positions. Rallies, door-to-door canvassing, town halls, petitions and other activities are taking place across the country and the number of municipalities opposing Canada Post’s hikes is growing. Two-thirds of CFIB members support a move to community mailboxes and an end to door-to-door delivery.
