Staff and Administrators at Ecolé Sifton School believe strongly in Project-Based Learning. Students receive instruction based on authentic learning experiences involving multiple aspects of a particular subject. Teacher Vicky Barclay’s first project began as part of her Grade 4 science class, in the unit titled Plant Growth and Changes. Students first did research on a variety of vegetables. They then partnered with CCHS wood working instructor Hans Haugen and his grade 7 students from Charlie Killam School to plan and build planting containers. In recent weeks, Ecolé Sifton students planted seeds in the correct soil mix. Over the remaining school term they will nurture their plants by carefully watering, weeding and fertilizing. As June concludes, the students will harvest their crop and share their bounty with other students of the school at a vegetable feast – an event currently being planned. The process has also spread to additional classrooms. In Language Arts, the students created a How-To brochure that provides instruction for people interested in planning and planting their own portable gardens.

Last graduation in Bawlf gym this Friday The countdown is on! As the day approaches for students and staff of Bawlf School to move across the yard to their brand new building, more and more events are the “last ever” that will be held in the current facility. Friday, May 16 is one such day, as the final graduation ceremony is scheduled to be held in the current Bawlf School gymnasium. The 25 graduates of 2014 have, very appropriately, chosen the theme “Memorable Endings and Remarkable Beginnings” to mark this milestone occasion. Members of the decorating committee are busy preparing and are getting the school gymnasium ready for the big night. The current Bawlf School is soon to be replaced by a new, state-of-the-art facility, which is scheduled to be completed in time for the start of the next school year. The gym will be 595 square metres, almost 200 square metres larger than the current one. A mechanical curtain down the centre will provide the flexibility of dividing the space for multipurpose use.

Snowbirds returning to Camrose Look to the skies over Camrose this summer for an exhilarating appearance by Canada’s iconic air demonstration Team – the Canadian Forces Snowbirds. A phenomenal display of aerial finesse and speed, the Cana-

dian Forces Snowbirds and their eleven CT-114 Tutor jets will be basing from Camrose Municipal Airport once again for this year’s Big Valley Jamboree. The Camrose Flying Club/COPA Flight #137,

in collaboration with Panhandle Productions and the City of Camrose, are proud to present “Snowbirds Over Camrose.” Thanks to successful grant requests for both municipal and provincial grant funding, along

with generous community sponsors, the organizing committee is hard at work making this free, familyfriendly event take flight. The performances will take place on Saturday, Aug. 2. and Sunday, Aug. 3.

Goats and lambs invade Camrose United Church By Murray Green

Camrose United Church had a few visitors on Sunday, May 4. Along with guests from other churches, it also welcomed goats, lambs and a heifer calf, much to the delight of children of all ages. The four-legged guests were a reminder of the Gifts with Vision partnership project between Canada and Zimbabwe. “This is the second year we have chosen to select a project with Gifts with Vision. We have the congregation involved in helping a school that doesn’t receive funding from the government,” said United Church Women leader Bonnie Oliver. “Students have to pay for their own food. We help with the purchase of animals for studying and for milk and food.” The United Church of Christ in Zimbabwe (UCCZ) is a long-standing partner of Global Ministries, established in 1893 by the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Mission for overseas Missions. UCCZ is responsible for 15 educational and training institutes, two hospitals, a Heifer Project in Buhera, and 50 churches throughout Zimbabwe. “Our purpose of bringing the animals to the

Bonnie Oliver with a goat brought to the United Church.

church was for a visual. Last year, when I brought the bicycle in, people realized

that yes, ministers needed bikes to travel to villages for ministry,” explained Bon-

nie. “We had a really good response, so someone suggested we could get a goat in the church this year.” The church’s mission is to promote Christian living and to relate humankind to the larger body of Christ through teaching, healing, stewardship, preaching, and farming. The church revolves around the core values of hard work and self-reliance, and works to eradicate poverty and disease through technical and vocational life skills training for survival, and integrated participatory communitybased development. Chipinge College of Horticulture is a UCCZ Agriculture Project, consisting of 150 students and five teachers. It promotes the UCCZ’s ideals by providing basic education in agriculture and advanced education, farm management, and skills training in horticulture. It is the only private college specializing in horticulture in Zimbabwe. Chipinge is a private school, not subsidized by the government. Students pay for their meals and the salaries of teachers and workers through their tuition. The UCCZ is unable to assist the college significantly due to the current hyper-inflation

in Zimbabwe, which is now at 400 per cent. Currently, the college is faced with closure if no further assistance is received to pay for food and salaries. Raising fees above the current tuition of $100,000 in Zimbabwe currency or roughly $286 Canadian per student is beyond the means of the impoverished peasant communities and parents who pay fees for their children. Because teachers’ salaries are lower at the college than at government institutions, the school is often unable to attract enough qualified teachers. The school also is lacking in many necessary resources, including a science laboratory, greenhouse, and educational technology equipment. Such resources are basic to any horticultural college. In order to prevent the closing of this much-needed institution, the school and UCCZ have proposed a project to increase the student population to 500, subsidize teachers’ salaries to make school fees more affordable, upgrade the irrigation system to increase food production, and upgrade living and classroom facilities and laboratories.

RELENTLESS ON WEEDS. SAFE ON WHEAT. FLUSH-AFTER-FLUSH™ CONTROL. With EVEREST® 2.0, no grower has to sacrifice yield or crop safety in order to control weeds in wheat. EVEREST 2.0 Herbicide, the new standard for grass control in wheat, has advanced safener technology built in to provide peace of mind while delivering long-lasting control of green foxtail, wild oats and key broadleaf weeds. FLUSH AFTER FLUSH™ CONTROL LEADS TO BETTER YIELDS In University of Saskatchewan field trials, researchers found that regardless of conditions, EVEREST 2.0 delivered Flush after flush™ control of wild oats and green foxtail with no risk of injury symptoms. The crop was able to grow without adverse effects, thanks to the super selectivity of EVEREST 2.0 on all varieties of spring and durum wheat. “We like that EVEREST 2.0 gives customers a wide application window that lets you spray at your earliest convenience, regardless of weather conditions,” says Brent McIndoe of Andrukow Group Solutions Inc. “Spraying early provides the best weed control, and with EVEREST 2.0, young wheat has the best chance to become

established and reach its top potential yield. And at the same time, if the rains come and the crop advances, EVEREST 2.0 is still safe to apply.”

EVEREST 2.0. A herbicide you can count on. For more information on EVEREST 2.0 visit Andrukow Group Solutions Inc., or call 1-866-761-9397

BEST-IN-CLASS CONTROL OF GROUP 1 RESISTANT GRASSY WEEDS More and more, spring wheat growers in Western Canada are plagued with Group 1 resistant grassy weeds. As a Group 2 herbicide, EVEREST 2.0 is the best option for growers struggling with Group 1 resistance. It is the only group 2 herbicide that provides Flush after flush control with unsurpassed crop safety.

Camrose, Alberta 780-608-2351

SUPERIOR FORMULATION AND CONVENIENCE “EVEREST 2.0 is an advanced, highly concentrated liquid formulation,” says Trent McCrea, Arysta LifeScience Marketing Manager, Herbicides. “It’s a user-friendly, no-hassle product that wheat growers can rely on, with exceptional convenience and flexibility.” One 2-litre bottle will treat 80 - 100 acres for wild oats and green foxtail. In addition, the high-quality liquid formula with safener technology makes it compatible with multiple tank-mix partners.

Goats and lambs Continued from page 4

Since horticulture is now the fourth largest foreign currency earner in Zimbabwe the graduates of the Chipinge College of Horticulture are in great demand throughout the country. Graduates have the potential to help alleviate poverty throughout their homeland and, without Chipinge College, this potential could be greatly diminished. A goat was brought into the sanctuary during the children’s story time as the project was explained to the congregation. “The bicycles were gifts of $130 and we raised enough money for 24 bikes,” recalled Bonnie. “I have no idea how well we do this year.”

Royal Canadian Legion prepares to move its cenotaph By Murray Green

The Camrose branch of the Royal Canadian Legion has one more move to make. Legion members moved their branch from 48 Avenue to the old golf course clubhouse (Knights of Columbus) building last winter to reduce the amount of space to upkeep. Now members are left with the task of removing the cenotaph and relocating it to the area south of the Camrose and District Centennial Museum. The question of ownership is still under review. The Harry Connor chapter of the IODE (Imperial Order of Daughters of the Empire) donated the original First World War memorial to the citizens of Camrose before there was a Legion. “The cenotaph was moved from downtown to where the old outdoor swimming was, near Parkview

Place. Then when the pool left it was moved to the Legion by the City,” recalled member Tom Coultis. “Now it has to be moved again. We hope this is the permanent location.” Regardless, if the City is the rightful owner of the monuments, time is running out because the old site has been purchased and other plans have been made for the space. The City donated the land to the new cenotaph site, but the price tag for building a concrete pad and moving the monuments won’t be cheap. The Legion has donated a lot of money to the community over the years, but doesn’t have enough funds in place to move the cenotaph. “It will cost us $20,000 just to have the pad made,” said Lloyd Dool, who is also on the cenotaph relocation committee to look after the move, which could cost

$30,000. “The problem is that we sold the property and it has to be moved off. Since we are the custodians of it for the last 25 or 30 years, it is basically our responsibility. Legally, I don’t think it is, but we have to move it onto our property until the pad is built,” said Lloyd. The Legion wants to take advantage of the move and have it renovated and refurbished at the same time. “I’ve got a letter off to IODE. I don’t know when they donated, but I suspect in the 1920s,” said Cmdr. Ragnar Gislason. “I’m asking if they would help with refurbishing and attend the dedication ceremony.” The City of Camrose offered several sites for the new cenotaph location. “We think the cenotaph is important to the community, so we provided several options for the Legion

to move the monuments,” said Chris Clarkson from the parks department. “We left it up to the Legion to decide. It was our intention to work together to find a suitable site. They liked the idea of being close to the cadets (community centre) and the site of the old army barracks.” The Legion will be approaching the City for assistance for the move. “We will be asking the province, MP Kevin Sorenson and veterans affairs to help us, along with the city,” said Ragnar. “We know that we have to pay for the flags ourselves.” The monument will feature three pieces in a tribute to the veterans of the First World War, Second World War and several conflicts. “We want to make the citizens aware of what is going to happen and that we

are looking for help,” added Lloyd. Tom, Ragnar, Lloyd and Pete Steinman formed the relocation committee. The cenotaph is not only used for honouring those who lost their lives during the wars, or conflicts, but on Remembrance Day, Decoration Day (last Sunday in August), the Battle of Atlantic in May, and D-Day (June 6). The Legion might like to add a short ceremony on Canada Day when the new site is finished. “Any activity where we honour the fallen will be held at the cenotaph,” explained Lloyd. “That could be a RCMP member, or anyone who has served the country.” Ragnar concluded by saying “The reason we want the cenotaph there is so the citizens of Camrose can be reminded of the heroic sacrifices of their forbearers.”

PAC seeks volunteers The Performing Arts Centre located at the University of Alberta’s Augustana Campus is nearing completion and the volunteer company will be holding an open house on Wednesday, May 21, between 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m at Augustana’s Faith and Life Lounge. This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in supporting the growth of arts and culture in Camrose to come and find out what the new facility has to offer General manager Kerry Rajotte says “We want to put together a team of volunteers who are as attracted to supporting this community as they are in live performing arts. This team will be the frontline when visitors come to the facility.” Rajotte goes on to say, “Ticket buyers will always remember how they were welcomed and the kind of service they received so we have set ourselves a high standard where customer service is concerned.” And there is lots of opportunity available for anyone who is interested in highlighting skills, learning new skills or just being a part of the action. Volunteer coordinator Stacey Beach says “We understand this is a situation which must be beneficial to both parties; Volunteers get the chance to support their interest in the performing arts and this new facility and we are offering training and support to this team which will allow us to open the doors and present to the community.” Beach goes on to say, “We offer a variety of opportunities, from Front of House to Technical Positions. If you have ever been interested in the performing arts, this is a fantastic chance to learn and be part of an incredible team!” Anyone interested in finding out more about how they can get involved, is invited to stop by anytime between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Staff members will be on hand to answer questions. Light refreshments will be served. Can’t make it to the open house? Email Stacey at to sign up or to ask any questions. Look for information on our grand opening week of events, Oct. 1 to 5.

This is a letter to all the people trying to help the environment. In a TV show last week they said there were 36 million airplane takeoffs every year around the world. Seven thousand takeoffs every hour in the United States. Even if that figure is wrong, even one million is mind blowing. So look up and think of all the pollution that is raining down on all of us. So the next time you start up your electric car or hybrid to go to the airport to fly somewhere else, think about it. Sheila Faulkner, Donalda Immunization saves lives

The timing of the current measles outbreak in Alberta underscores the importance of immunization. During the first half of the 20th century, preventable diseases killed thousands of people. Outbreaks of measles, whooping cough, polio and other preventable diseases resulted in hundreds of children through-

out Alberta dying each and every year. In the 1950s, preventable diseases such as polio, measles, pertussis, and diphtheria killed one out of every 28,000 people. Today, the number of deaths related to preventable diseases has dropped dramatically, down to one in every 462,500 people. The last person to die from the measles in Alberta was in 1988. This dramatic decrease in mortality rates is not because these lifethreatening diseases have been eradicated. They’re still here. What’s protecting us is Alberta’s rigorous immunization program. Vaccinations have clearly saved countless lives in our province and have kept children and adults out of walk-in clinics, hospitals and funeral homes. But in order for immunization to continue to protect us, we all need to do our part. Make sure your vaccinations and your children’s vaccinations are complete and up-to-date. By doing so, you’re not only protecting yourself and your family, you’re also protecting your friends, neighbours, and co-workers. I encourage everyone to learn more about vaccinations and how they protect against preventable diseases in order to help us all live healthier lives. Visit www. to learn more about immunization or call Health Link Alberta toll-free at 1-866408-5465 if you are unsure of your immunization history. Sincerely, Dr. James Talbot Chief Medical Officer of Health, Alberta

Fixing a broken temporary foreign workers program

The Conservative government has mismanaged the Temporary Foreign Worker Program so badly they have more than doubled its intake of temporary foreign workers (TFWs), admitting almost as many temporary workers to Canada as new permanent residents in 2012. The end result has been fewer jobs for Canadian workers, the suppression of Canadian wages, and, in some cases, the exploitation of vulnerable foreign workers. More fundamentally, the Conservatives undermined Canada’s long-standing nation-building immigration system — where we welcome permanent immigrants and their families and encouraged them to become citizens and full participants in our communities. The Tories sought to replace that system with guest workers who come here for a few years and are then shipped out. This has been intentional. In 2007, Minister Diane Finley was clear, saying “we’ve expanded the temporary foreign workers program very significantly and very deliberately.” The Conservatives loosened all the rules in the book. They shortened the time an employer had to actively search for Canadian workers before accessing the foreign worker program. They extended the length of time a temporary foreign worker can work in Canada. Yet they failed to create safeguards to ensure employers

were telling the truth on those applications. Then, like a reckless driver, after years of pushing the accelerator to the floor on TFWs, a political crisis broke out, and the government slammed on the brakes, imposing a moratorium on the whole food services sector. Had they managed the file competently to begin with, such a moratorium would not have been necessary. The Liberal Party has proposed a reasonable fivepoint plan to fix this mess. Scale the program back and focus on its original purpose — to fill labour shortages when there is a legitimate need. Tighten the rules to ensure employers genuinely seek Canadians first. Enforce those rules and impose severe penalties on violators. Increase the transparency of the program so that Canadians can know the number of jobs in each occupation and community that are being offered to TFWs. And finally, refocus on bringing in immigrants for whom a path to permanent residence is available. We cannot allow Canada to become a country that exploits large numbers of guest workers who have no realistic prospect of citizenship. We must restore our core Canadian value of fairness: fairness for Canadians who need work, and fairness for vulnerable people who travel to Canada from abroad in search of a real opportunity to succeed. Rodger Cuzner, MP Liberal Party of Canada Employment and Social Development Critic

Camrose and area has always supported the Lamb Ford dealership, so it’s not surprising the owners are eager to give something back to the community. Cliff Denham, Brett Denham and Pat Quinlan from Lamb Ford made a donation of $75,000 to the Camrose Performing Arts Centre at the University of Alberta Augustana Campus May 1. The building will be completed late this year or early next year.

Murray Green, Camrose Booster

University of Alberta dean Allen Berger, left, and Camrose Mayor Norm Mayer, right, accepted a $75,000 donation from Lamb Ford’s Pat Quinlan, Cliff Denham and Brett Denham.


“Anything that is good for Camrose, is good for all of the businesses. Camrose has become a pretty good city with not much missing now.” “The community has been extremely good to us over the last 33 years and our company has done extremely well. We have had great support from the community and terrific staff. If we didn’t have the support, or the staff that we have, we wouldn’t be making this donation today,” said Cliff, dealer principal of Lamb Ford. “We believe in giving back.” The automotive dealership wants to see the city thrive. “The way the city has been growing, it (Performing Arts Centre) is a necessity. It will take the city to the next level,” explained Cliff. “I’m not totally into the arts personally myself, but when you look at everyone in the community including my children and grandchildren, who are going to be here for the next couple of generations, it will be a fine building for everybody.” Cliff’s son, Brett, sees it as an opportunity to help build the city. “With three young chil-

dren myself, who may or may not get into the arts, it is great to have (the PAC). It is another building block for the community and university. It is beneficial to everybody, whether you are into the arts or not,” said Brett, assistant general manager. Pat has more experience with the arts. “I have four children who are involved with the arts and performing music. I think a facility like this allows the arts really to develop and Camrose has become a point of interest in Alberta for incoming talent to the arts and that promotes the city,” suggested Pat, Lamb Ford general manager. “Anything that is good for Camrose, is good for all of the businesses. Camrose has become a pretty good city with not much missing now (when the PAC is built),” said Cliff. “It gives people different and better opportunities. It brings in younger people and more people into the schools and university,” added Brett. “It is absolutely wonderful to have Augustana, which is part of the University of Alberta, here. To have an arm of the U of A here is terrific,” exclaimed Cliff. “You look at the expansion and renovations (Old Main) that is going on here and it is good for the community,” said Brett. “It promotes the city when you put in a performing arts centre like this,” added Pat. “It shows the University of Alberta that Camrose is behind the university and that opens their mind in promoting the campus here and maybe funding more programs to the campus here, so it becomes more of a substantial part of the U of A, which again will grow our community.” “It shows the viability of the city,” said Brett.

Battle River Community Foundation board member Brandon Kroeger presents a cheque for $380 to Camrose Neighbor Aid Centre program director Jo-Anne Tweed.

The Battle River Community Foundation has granted $380 to the Camrose Neighbor Aid Center to assist with cost of offering school nutrition programs. Funding for this grant came from the Bert and Sharon Bromley Family Fund and the Bob and Lesley Bell Fund. Both of these funds were established to support nutritional programs, particularly those for children, in the Battle River region. The Battle River Community Foundation exists to support projects, such as those offered by Camrose Neighbor Aid Center, in East Central Alberta which benefit the local communities and have a positive impact on the future. Grants from the Battle River Community Foundation are primarily made possible through the generosity of individual donors and organizations that have created endowment funds. The principal of these endowment funds is kept intact and the income is made available annually to support local projects and organizations. Since it was founded in 1995 the Battle River Community Foundation has granted over $2,250,000 to support important local initiatives and organizations such as the Camrose Neighbor Aid Centre.

member Ken Mah. “Hopefully we will be able to get a few more people who are into that sport.” The 100-footer races will be held on Saturday afternoon (non competitive) and again on Sunday (competitive). Registrations will be taken from 9 a.m. to noon both days, with racing scheduled to go from 1 to 5 p.m. “We’re going to do like

we did last year where the cars will be racing side by side,” said Mah. The Camrose Cruisers have been holding the 100-footer event for the last 15 years. “It is a pretty popular event that generates between 40 and 50 drivers and a grandstand full of spectators,” said Mah. Continued on page 17

The 2014 Camrose Founders Days celebration has been pushed back a week. “We’re going to have it from Friday, August 15 to Sunday, August 17,” explained Camrose Founders Days organizer Janine Carroll. “We felt that having it so soon after Big Valley Jamboree that it got lost in all the coverage.” Festivities will get going at noon with the traditional Main Street promenade (not to be confused with a parade). “We usually have the Red Hat ladies come in with us on that,” said Carroll. “The normal turnout in good weather is 12 to 14 ladies and gentlemen but more is always better.” The 2013 walk made its way to Messiah Lutheran Church, which served cookies and beverages. “The people found that it was nice to have a destination rather than just walking, so it looks like we will be doing that again,” said Carroll. The opening ceremonies, which will pay tribute to the late Bill Fowler, will be held at the Bailey Theatre starting at 1 p.m. After a break during the afternoon, celebrations will continue in the evening with the popular cemetery tour led by John Person and a ghost tour led by Carroll that will include such haunted sites as the Alice Hotel downtown, the library and the cemetery north of Camrose.

Lynne Hartwick of Camrose Family Literacy enjoyed reading about dots in a book called Press Here to Sparling School students. Jacob Parsons-Pevlin gives the dots a shake during a Read-In on May 6. Volunteers from the community helped make the reading exciting during Education Week, May 5 to 9. It was a great way to celebrate libraries and the importance of reading to children. Readers included Battle River School Division board member Lorrie Sitler, Charlie Killam School teacher Jon Lindstrand, board member Norm Erickson, retired teacher Val Sims, City councilor Max Lindstrand, Camrose Family Literacy leader Lynne Hartwick, City councillor PJ Stasko, retired teacher Karen McKenzie and Camrose Kodiaks coach and general manager Boris Rybalka. Students from kindergarten to Grade 6 listened to stories told by each of the volunteers.

don’t know if the woman took the baby with her or whether it is buried in Camrose, but there are stories to this day of guests in the current hotel hearing the cries of a baby. I have talked with a lady who worked at this hotel for four years who says that is absolutely true.” Camrose Railway Station and Park and Camrose and District Centennial Museum will join in the Founders Days celebration by hosting activities throughout the day on Saturday. “We anticipate that they will be somewhat similar to what they were in previous years but the details are still being worked out,” said Carroll. Saturday evening’s entertainment will include a dessert theatre at the Bailey Theatre that will pay tribute to those who fought in the First World War, which began in 1914, Second World War, which began in 1939. A repeat performance will be presented as a matinee on Sunday afternoon, following a morning church service at Camrose and District Centennial Museum. The Camrose Founders Days committee is on the lookout for someone who is willing to take on the role of coordinator. “It is a paid position so if someone is looking for a part-time job or wants to add to the job that they have they should contact me at 780608-6243,” said Carroll.

Sakura sightings in Japan By Brenda Knull, BRSD teacher


Those who wish to participate in the ghost tour but don’t have their own transportation will be able to catch a bus at the Camrose Recreation Centre. “Ghosts have been a fascinating topic for me and every year I get more and more stories,” said Carroll, who has been given the nickname of The Ghost Lady. “Last year I had seven or eight people with their own ghost stories who asked me to phone them.” Carroll’s favourite story concerns a baby who died in the Windsor Hotel at the north end of main street (where the Alice currently stands). “The hotel (which was destroyed by fire) faced the train station and always attracted a lot of guests who were either passing through, looking for more information about the area, or visiting friends and family,” said Carroll. “One particular guest, in about 1905 or 1906, had a baby with her who died during the night. The death was reported to Dr. Lamb, who, being suspicious, took the deceased child to RCMP officer Blue Smith, who in his home had a little cell attached to the kitchen where he could detain prisoners. Part of the job of his wife was to serve meals to the prisoners. The post mortem they did on the child in the home proved to be inconclusive – it was felt later that the baby had died of SIDS – and the woman was allowed to go on her way. We

Each year the Japanese Meteorological Agency and the public track the sakura zensen (cherry blossom front) as it moves northward throughout Japan. Okinawa is the first area to see sakura as the blossoming begins in January. By the end of March or the beginning of April places such as Kyoto and Tokyo are great spots to go to see sakura. A few weeks later, sakura will bloom in Hokkaido. This year the forecast predicts that the first bloom will occur in Sapporo on May 4. The trees will be in full bloom on May 8. Sapporo is the largest city on the island of Hokkaido. It is about two and a half hours northwest of Kamifurano. There are many spots around Kamifurano to view sakura as well. People pay close attention to the forecasts so they can go to parks, shrines, and temples with their friends and family to hold flower-viewing parties. I have never seen sakura before and you can bet that my calendar is marked this year so I can attend a cherry blossom festival. The Japanese cherry blossom (sakura) has

been seen as a symbol of the country for centuries. A typical textbook picture often includes majestic cherry blossoms surrounding a shrine, or Mt. Fuji. Hanami is when people picnic under a blooming sakura tree. It simply means flower viewing. Some people eat lunch and drink sake in cheerful feasts as they take in the beauty of the sakura. Risako Toyama, a resident of Kamifurano, states that: `Spring is a great season for us because many things begin in April. The cherry blossoms remind us that we have a new start. It makes us feel renewed and ready to start new things. We can see the beautiful cherry blossoms for about one week only. This short period of bloom reminds us how human life is very short and fragile but then again, so beautiful.` Hanami festivals are good places to observe the beauty of the cherry blossom. For many people they are a time to relax and enjoy the view. But there are manners and essential items to have at a Hanami party. Many must-haves can be purchased at 100 yen shops (basically the equivalent of a dollar store). Don’t for-

get these things when you attend your next Hanami festival: a picnic sheet, portable floor-cushion/folding chair, garbage bag, disposable body warmers, paper cups, paper plates, disposable chopsticks, wet wipes/ tissues, and a bottle opener/ wine opener. Once you have all of your belongings ready to go, follow these steps to ensure that you are following proper Hanami etiquette. Reserve a picnic spot on a first-come first-served basis. Check to see if a hanami party is allowed beforehand. Do not leave the garbage behind. Be sure to have items to keep you warm. Hanami and sakura are going to be two more things that make living in Kamifurano such an enjoyable experience. The City of Camrose website now contains more information about Kamifurano.

Army Cadets preparing for dinner The 3068 South Alberta Light Horse Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps here in Camrose is preparing for its fifth annual dinner and auction. This event is the Corps’ main fundraiser and helps to offset the cost of various program requirements not funded by the Department of National Defence, by its sponsor, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #57 Camrose, or by the generous donations from groups such as the Camrose Rotary Club or the Loyal Order of Moose. “This is a very big event for us this year,” said the Corps’ commanding officer, Captain Alex Boos. “Our parent group has been diligently seeking donations from various businesses in and around the Camrose area, and we have seen some incredible support from the community for this event” That support includes donations from Five Star Home Solutions, McNabb Construction, The Winspear Center in Edmonton, as well as Edmonton Northlands, and Wideman Carpet One. Countryside Catering has donated its time to cater the event, and Bashaw Meats and Sausage has donated the meat. The parent support group is also in the process of obtaining donations from the various grocery stores in Camrose to help offset the cost of additional food required. “We had to move the event from the new Legion building to the Moose family centre as we are expecting a much bigger crowd this year” said Army Cadet parent support group president Kim Newberry. “We have country music recording artist Adam Gregory coming to perform for us, as well as local singer Brian Dumont. It should be a very fun-filled and entertaining evening for everyone.” Adam Gregory, who is from Edmonton, is the 2013 Slaight Music Humanitarian award winner. He recently released his sixth studio album, Different Places in February of this year. He is known for such hit singles as “Horseshoes,” “Crazy Days,” “What it Takes” and “What Would Jesus Do?” Local singer Brian Dumont, who recently performed as Tevye in the Churchmice Players production of Fiddler on the Roof, will be the opening entertainment for the event. The dinner and auction is being held at the Moose

100 footer and auto cross Continued from page 13

The auto cross, which is newer, is basically a skills event in which drivers have to manoeuvre through a series of pylons in the fastest possible time. “You don’t have to have any experience but you have to know how to drive,” said Mah. Registrations for the auto cross will be taken from 9 to 10 a.m. Saturday, with the driving to follow immediately afterwards. The 100-footer and the auto cross will be separate from the Camrose Cruise and the Show and Shine, both of which will be held on Main Street Camrose on Saturday, July 5. “We’re hoping that day works out weather wise,” said Mah. “I remember a few times in the past when we held it in May that we had snow.” The Camrose Cruise will start at 6 p.m. and go for two to three hours. “It has been going for as long as I can remember,” said Mah, adding that the Cruise started first, followed a few years later by the Show and Shine. “People like to see some of the traditional cars as well as some of the newer ones. It brings back a lot of memories for some of the older guys like myself who used to go cruising around town on the weekends.” The cruise will be followed by a free outdoor showing of the movie Back to the Future at the Camrose Recreation Centre.

They said it “Give these graduates the mentors they need, give them good friends, let them create community wherever they go and experience life to the fullest. Grant them the persistence and the endurance to go the extra mile and the wisdom, humility and gratitude to give credit where credit is due.” – Pastor Harold Rust in his invocation. “Today truly is a day that maybe part of our (Battle River School Division’s Every Student Every Day a Success) dream really has come true.” – Norm Erickson, who brought greetings from BRSD. “You don’t get to select the ones you go to high school with but looking back I wouldn’t have chosen anyone else to be graduating with me today.” – Alexyn Nycholat and Brynn Markowsky in a tribute to friends. “Thank you for taking on one of the most difficult, challenging, frustrating, emotionally exhausting and most important jobs in the world. Many of you have been that one person who has had a positive impact on our lives, one that we will remember and reflect upon throughout our life. You are the teacher who has inspired us to act smarter, work to our full potential and do our homework. Every year you inspire us to reach our potential, celebrate our own uniqueness, and become leaders of the future.” – Lauren Feth and Kaitlyn Duggan in their tribute to the staff. “You have been created for one special mission. Your job, you have the chance to be someone else’s hero. You have an obligation to heal the world and give the world the very best of who you are.” – Caroline Simonson in her response to the tribute to the staff. “In your pursuit of happiness you will encounter detours and some dead ends. So whatever your dream is right now, if you fall short you haven’t failed. Always know there is another path awaiting you and success is up to you.” – Troy Thompson in response to the tribute to the parents.

Valedictorian tells grads to be more than mediocre By Curtis Mokry

It is a great honour to be standing before you today as valedictorian of the Class of 2014! I would like to start off by thanking all the people that made it possible for us to be here today. Thanks to all the friends who have been with us day in and day out. A special acknowledgement and appreciation goes out to all the teachers of Camrose Composite High School for their dedication to planting knowledge into our brains. Most of all, thanks to our parents, guardians and grandparents who have raised us to be the fine men and women we are today. For they have helped us at home and gotten us up on those early, cold mornings to go to school even when we really didn’t want to. When we were on the recent Chorazz trip to Banff I heard a very good quote saying “If the fruit is good, take a look at the tree.” The parents in our lives have a huge impact on us. We are all here today so

our parents must have done something right. Mr. Sorensen is a pretty tough act to follow since I’m no English scholar. I was, however, lucky enough to be taught by him in Grade 9 at Charlie Killam School. He set a strong foundation in writing knowledge and expanded my repertoire of fancy words. But, since then, English has taken the back seat and my passion for Music, Math and Science prevailed so forgive me if my grammar and public speaking isn’t up to Mr. Sorensen’s standard. It is difficult to comprehend that only three short years ago we were little Grade 10’s walking into an unfamiliar school, a place that would become like a second home for us for the next few years. We received a warm welcome from Mr. McFeely, Mr. Ofrim and the rest of the teaching staff. We soon found ourselves fitting in comfortably as we learned, discovered and made mistakes on our journey to becoming young

adults. Over the last three years we have acquired the elements necessary to make the formation reaction occur to build the “compound of success.” This compound isn’t nearly as simple as adding sodium and chlorine together to make salt. Instead, this compound is formed slowly over time with determination, hard work, patience and learning from mistakes which are the key elements in the formula for success. Our journey through high school has had its ups and downs as well. Some notable downs were when we almost had to deal with the four point grading system and I’ll never forget that day when the ping pong table was taken away. There have also been so many great times and memories throughout the years. For example: going on all those sweet trips whether it were for band, FACT, French or International Travel; watching our sports teams win in the final seconds of the game; or playing yahtzee in math

when we should have been doing our work… well, there’s just too many good times and lasting memories to mention. Camrose Composite High School has given us countless opportunities to help find who we are as individuals. It has also helped us to further develop our talents and abilities which may have never been discovered in a smaller school setting. Over the last three years, I have received many words of wisdom from none other than Mr. Spila. He has always told the band, and I quote “get out of mezzo land,” “stay away from that medium sound.” Don’t play with that medium soft or medium loud sound, instead play those fortissimos out and be heard. These words have resonated in my life. We should always strive to be more than mediocre and stuck in mezzo land. Every time an opportunity arises bring out that fortissimo and make an impact!

CCHS valedictorian Continued from page 20

It’s a good thing we’ve had some outstanding math teachers over the years as well, because I have no idea where I’d be today if I didn’t learn how to solve polynomial functions, take derivatives of trig functions and be able to sketch the graph of any function in perfect detail. In math, the concept of infinity comes up a few times and I’d like to think that the possibilities for all of us are equivalent to the . For those who didn’t get that I just said that the possibilities for us are infinite. Okay maybe it’s not infinite since nobody is going to divide a number by zero, that’s impossible. There are, however, vast amounts of possibilities for us. We could end up seeing astronaut Jason Rivet exploring the infinity of space or Luke, Jayden and Jordan playing concerts in a sold out stadium. Who knows what we will accomplish? Sure, we aren’t all going to be doctors and engineers, but that’s okay. The world needs the valued members of society that are the road workers, stay-at-home moms, truck drivers and janitors. I guess the most important point of this whole speech is, and this is the one sentence you should pay attention to if you have been zoned out the whole time, it is to be outstanding at whatever it is you make of yourself because there’s nothing like the drive, ambition and creativity of our youthful minds so don’t waste it! In a month and a half our high school career will be over and we may not see each other again but remember that the possibilities are infinite and to stay out of mezzo land. Congrats class of 2014! Rock On!

Ole’s Spring Run minus the warm weather By Murray Green

Despite the cold weather on May 3, the Camrose Running Club attracted a lot of participants for the annual Ole’s Spring Run. “We had more registered runners than ever before. We had 222 runners in total, which is a new record. Out of these numbers, 63 children ran in the one kilometre Fun Run,” said Robert Renman. Marathon master Brendan Lunty won the eight kilometre run in 3:29 minutes. He was followed by Hans Asfeldt, Warren Fink, Trent Kowal and Hans Haugen. Megan Hodges was the top female runner with a time of 4:01 minutes. She was followed by Claudette Auger, Connie McArthur, Leigh Heie and Brianna Schultz. In the three km event, Carson Baker crossed the finish line first. He was joined by Dustin Brown, Dallas Brown, Denton Robertson and Ben Eggink on the men’s-boy’s side. The top female runners were Kailyn Foss, Faith Taylor, Anne Mirejovsky, Kerstin Wichers and Olivia Gaalaas.

The Camrose Composite High School Rotary Interact Club delivered 50 packages of diapers to families of Learning Together students. The club also made a generous cash donation to the Learning Together child care program to purchase new materials that will enhance the learning spaces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;CCHS had a classroom competition to see which class could bring in the most diapers,â&#x20AC;? said adult supervisor Joanne Miske. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donations were also accepted at local churches and at the recreation centre and at Declare Brands. St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital also generously donated two

boxes of diapers to support us.â&#x20AC;? Learning Together is a program for young mothers to go back to school to finish high school, while caring for their babies. The program is run out of the Chester Ronning School by the Battle River School Division. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This donation went further than supplying our families with diapers as it led to a conversation among students and staff about the difference young people can make in the lives of others. That is a lesson that will not be forgotten and for that we are truly grateful,â&#x20AC;? said Jolene Doig, Learning Together program director.

Seed to Bloom St. Mary’s Hospital honours volunteers with tea

By Murray Green Volunteers at Covenant Health St. Mary’s Hospital were honoured with tea, cake, pen and pencil set, along with a candy bar during a celebration on May 7. “We really appreciate all of our volunteers. A total of 4,167 volunteer hours were recorded and that is 422 more hours than last year,” said volunteer coordinator Anna Radchenko. “The increase was reflected in St. Mary’s Ladies’ Auxiliary through many extra hours of knitting, quilting and other tasks including the compassion bags that the ladies have taken on to help patients that have been admitted without an overnight bag. Thank you very much and great job ladies.” The year for the hospital and volunteers was from April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014. “Also, the number of volunteers has increased from last year to 157 – that’s an extra 21 volunteers, so we are growing,” Anna informed the volunteers and staff. “We had an increase from 46 to 67 in our team of volunteer services where they provide visitation with patients and help in the nursing and clinical units.” Site administrator Cherylyn Antymniuk also thanked the volunteers. “Every year the ladies auxiliary give us numerous donations and without those donations we definitely couldn’t give the excellent care that we do to our patients,” she said. “I thank you for your commitment to not only to the hospital, but also to your community. Each one of you brings compassion and caring as you go about your daily tasks at St. Mary’s. Your commitment provides and serves to give meaning and mission to those patients that you care for, or the tasks that you deal with in the hospital.” Cherylyn said volunteers give unselfishly to others as well as time and gain the trust of the staff and the patients. “You bring a sense of comfort to those you serve and you care for your neighbours. You serve with your heart. You are actively engaged in providing high quality service to the patients and you work collaboratively with our staff. You are definitely part of our care team and we are so proud to have you on

our team. Today gives us an opportunity to actually thank you from my heart. Keep up the great work. I also thank the board for their support and the volunteers for their time.” The community and foundation board chair also expressed his gratitude. “There is lots of other work that goes on without being recorded by volunteers,” said Alan Heyhurst, community board chair. “As a board we put in a lot of hours. We are celebrating 150 years of Catholic health care in this province and 90 years with St. Mary’s Hospital and 53 years for the ladies auxiliary, so we have a lot to be thankful for and we can only celebrate this because of all of the volunteers we have. It is just amazing.”

Parliamentary Report Kevin Sorenson, M.P., Crowfoot National Day of Honour Commemorates Canada’s Military Commitment in Afghanistan

Canadians across the country commemorated the end of Canada’s military commitment in Afghanistan by attending events at local military bases, legion halls, or many other events on the National Day of Honour May 9. During Canada’s mission in Afghanistan (2001 to 2014), the strength and courage demonstrated by our men and women in uniform serving on the battlefield and supported by personnel from other government departments advanced Canada’s national interests in the fight against terrorism. More than 40,000 members of the Canadian Armed Forces served in Afghanistan for over 12 years. In the summer of 2010, the House of Commons Special Committee on the Canadian Mission in Afghanistan travelled there on a fact finding mission. I was elected to chair the committee and it was my duty to lead the mission on behalf of my fellow Members of Parliament, both the Government Parliamentary Secretaries and Opposition Party Chief Critics. I hosted and conducted meetings we had with everyone including top-ranking military officials and Afghan citizens. I can assure you that there is probably no place on earth farther away from our prosperous and peaceful Crowfoot riding. I saw how fortunate we all are here at home in contrast to the daily struggles of the Afghan people. It was truly inspiring to see the determination and optimism of all the Afghan officials and citizens that our committee met. Equally impressive was the competency of our own Canadian Forces personnel, RCMP, Correctional Services, Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development and other civilian agencies. The National Day of Honour parade started at the National War Museum in Ottawa. The parade arrived at Parliament Hill and was received by the Governor General of Canada where there was a vice regal inspection and a 21-gun salute. Two minutes of silence was observed across Canada.

Government investing in Primary Care Networks Albertans will soon have even more convenient and timely access to the services of primary health care professionals. The government is making $32 million available to Primary Care Networks (PCN) in 2014-15 to implement advancements such as same day/next day appointments and extended operating hours.

The government will also be making up to $45 million in new funding in Budget 2014 available for the implementation of nine new Family Care Clinics in the Edmonton, Calgary, Peace River, and central Alberta areas that will focus on providing community-specific health care services. These efforts are sup-

ported by the government’s continuing efforts to expand the scope of practice of a variety of health professionals in the province, including most recently pharmacists and optometrists. “These investments are part of the government’s ongoing efforts to increase the availability and convenience of primary health

care services in Alberta communities,” said Fred Horne, Minister of Health. “By ensuring that Albertans are able to access care from a variety of health care professionals at times and locations that are convenient to them is key in both helping people manage their health and in the province achieving better health outcomes overall.”

Ray Alden Henriksen It is with heavy hearts that the family of Ray Alden Henriksen must share the news of his passing. Ray was born in Hanna, AB on February 8, 1938 and was raised in Spondin where his parents ran the General Store, gas station, drove the school bus, maintained the curling rink and operated a small farm. It was also in this small rural community that he attended school and that he started dating his wife-to-be, Maxine LeClaire. In 1957, Ray left the farm to complete vocational training as a lineman for Calgary Power – a career that moved him to Hughenden, Camrose and finally landed him in Tofield in 1963. After 35 years of service, Ray retired in 1992 as District Manager for TransAlta Utilities. Ray and Maxine were married in 1960, and together they raised three children Melody, Donald and Reid. This union also gave Ray (an only child) the added bonus of two brothers-in-law Dave and Ron Leclaire, and later two sisters-in-law Gloria and Linda, two nieces and three nephews. Ray’s favourite pastimes were fishing, camping and traveling, always with Maxine at his side, and usually in the company of family and friends. Every summer vacation involved a trip to Surrey, BC and Hatzic Lake to meet up with lifelong friends Bob and Marlene Housch; this annual tradition was filled with fun, laughter and adventures that are treasured memories shared by both families. While raising a young family and into his retirement, Ray was actively involved in several community groups including the Tofield Legion, Tofield Lions Club and Tofield Gun Club. He was also an avid supporter of his children’s and grandchildren’s activities as part of Tofield Minor Hockey, Tofield Figure Skating and Tofield Curling Clubs. He was an avid car enthusiast, loved to drive, to work on vehicles and to attend car shows. During his ‘retirement’, he continued to deliver vehicles and parts for Kallal (Beaverhill) Motors and later became the selfappointed Chief Courier for FXD, his sons’ garage. This last job involved many planning sessions with other community consultants over morning coffee at ‘The Shop’. In February of 2014, on returning home from vacation, Ray became suddenly and seriously ill and was diagnosed with Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia. When informed that this type of leukemia was curable, but that the aggressive treatments were not without risk, he bravely accepted the challenge and began his battle against cancer. Maxine made the journey to Edmonton every day to support him through these trying times. Sadly, and in spite of excellent medical care, the complications were too many and he succumbed peacefully in the Palliative Care Unit at St. Mary’s Hospital in the early morning hours of May 8, 2014. His family will be forever changed, but will carry on strong in his memory. He will be missed, but never forgotten, by his loving family: Maxine, Reid, Cindy, Gavin, Conor, Don, Jodie, Dayle, Joel, Mel, Denis, Josh, Breanne, Matt, Lisa and Wyatt; as well as his extended family and large circle of friends. Ray was predeceased by his parents Carl and Verna Henriksen; and his in-laws Melvin and Mary LeClaire. A celebration of Ray’s life was held at 2;00 p.m., Tuesday, May 13, 2014 at Tofield United Church with Rev. Adam Hall officiating. Cremation has taken place. Inurnment was held at Tofield Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to Tofield United Church, Canadian Diabetes Association, or to Tofield Royal Canadian Legion Branch #91.

Camrose Bike Club launches new season By Dan Jensen

The Camrose Bike Club launched a new season with a barbecue and workshop on bike maintenance at the Stoney Creek Centre April 26. “We wanted to do it just to promote ourselves and let people know that we exist,” explained bike club director Tom Layton. The Camrose Bike Club will be holding group rides Monday starting from the Stoney Creek Centre at 7:30 p.m. “Our rides are for all levels of people who want to just come out, have fun, meet people and enjoy the fresh air,” said Layton. “The rides go for as long as people want. If they want to go four hours we will go four hours. If they want to go for half an hour it is half an hour. It all depends on the people who show up. The main thing is that it is fun for everyone.” The Camrose Bike Club is fortunate to have some high quality single mountain biking trails that have been developed with funding received from the Camrose Ski Club. “We are working with the City of Camrose to expand our current trail system and develop new ones, checking with them to make sure that we are not doing anything we shouldn’t be doing,” said Layton. “We are not cutting down trees or altering landscapes, just simply following the contours of the land and clearing away some of the under-

brush. Any disturbance that we do is minimal.” The Camrose Bike Club was started three years ago and now has approximately 20 members who pay the annual fee of $40, an amount that provides access to the equipment owned by the Camrose Ski Club.

“We have a Facebook page with 15 to 20 people but the core group is about seven riders,” said Layton. “I think there are quite a few others who are out there that would join if they knew more about what we were doing.” While the bike club

hasn’t done any special theme rides, it is considering expanding in the near future to include a road bike division. “We are currently talking to people who might want to lead that,” said Layton. “We don’t have a leader as of yet, but we want to

expand into that into the future. That way we are not solely sitting on just one type of bike.” Anyone wishing more information about the Camrose Bike Club is encouraged to email Layton at layton.tom,c@gmail. com.

City moves ahead with Yichun twinning By Dan Jensen

Camrose council has directed City administration to put together a formal memorandum of understanding for a twinning relationship with Yichun, China. Council was informed at its May 5 regular meeting by City manager Damian Herle that a delegation from Yichun is prepared to sign an agreement during a visit to Camrose sometime in the last quarter of this year. A council representative would then pay a visit to Yichun in 2015. The mayor of Yichun invited City council to send delegates to Yichun in 2013 to officially start the twinning process, only to be told that 2013 was an election year in Camrose and that 2014 would work better. The City of Camrose has budgeted $5,000 for the twinning initiative. The provinces of Alberta and Heilongjiang, China, have enjoyed an active twinning arrangement for the last 32 years, with the capital cities of the

two provinces, Harbin and Edmonton, having a twinning relationship for the last 27 years. The idea of a twinning agreement between Yichun and Camrose was first discussed at an international women’s bonspiel in Yichun in 2011 that featured competitive curling teams from six countries. It was noted that the two cities had a mutual interest in curling excellence, with Yichun wishing to become the curling capital of China and the Rose City Curling Club in Camrose working on the creation of an Academy of Curling that would develop curlers to reach their maximum potential while receiving a high quality education through the Camrose based educational institutions. Ken Duggan, who has been working on the twinning agreement, explained to council on April 21 that it would be beneficial for the two cities to explore mutual benefits that come from twinning in the areas of sport, culture, tourism, education and business opportunities.

“Yichun observes the strengths of their city and region also include forestry (the forestry capital of China) ecological tourism other winter sports and dinosaur exploration,” said Duggan. “Camrose has particular strengths in agricultural based industry, education and winter sporting activities.” The total cost of Camrose hosting the delegation and to travel to Yichun is approximately $18,000. “The government of Alberta through intergovernmental and international relations and the Camrose area MLA support and endorse the concept of twinning between these cities,” said Duggan. “The suggestion was made to apply for funds through a CIP grant to cover a matching portion of these expenses for $5,000 and if Camrose could provide the matching $5,000 it was felt that the rest might be obtained through private fundraising. We have since determined that a municipality is unable to obtain funding through

a CIP grant and there is no other reasonable legal not for profit entity to apply for these funds. In meeting with supporters of this initiative from the government of Alberta, the City of Camrose, and others with relationships in the Chinese communities it is felt there is good opportunity to raise the additional funds and provide for other expenses such as banquets through private sponsorship and support.” Duggan noted that Dr. Chester Ronning, who established his permanent home in Camrose and had a long and diverse career in the fields of education, Alberta politics, service to his country as an ambassador and particularly a diplomat to China, is still known and held in esteem by the People’s Republic of China. “Dr. Ronning was born and spent his formative years in China, the son of missionary parents. He maintained a strong tie to his birth country and worked over his lifetime to provide an ongo-

ing understanding of the western culture and to the culture and the ways of the Chinese. He was very helpful in Western and Chinese relationships and is recognized for this achievement in both China and Canada.” The City of Yichun is situated in the primaeval forest on the Lesser Xing’ An Mountain in the northeast part of the Heilongjiange province.

2014 Ford Focus The truck Canadians rely on

Craig Beddoes By Dan Jensen

You’ll be making fewer trips to the gas station with the 2014 Ford Focus from Lamb Ford Sales Camrose. The new Ford Focus uses just 5.1 litres of fuel per 100 km on the highway and 7.6 litres of fuel while getting around in the city. “Our customers tell us that fuel economy is one of the top reason for purchasing a Focus,” said Lamb Ford Sales assistant sales manager Brett Read. “The all-new Focus meets that demand with great fuel economy, classleading technologies and features, exceptional standards of craftsmanship and driving dynamics typically reserved for larger, more expensive vehicles.” Spirited driving The 2014 Focus offers spirited driving dynamics and crisp handling, thanks to a rear stabilizer bar and our fully independent control blade rear suspension that stubbornly resists body roll. The available Titanium Handling package is taut and confidence inspiring – it adds a unique sport-tuned suspension with 18-inch wheels and low-profile summer-only tires. You’ll look forward to a ride you’ll love every day. Twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) adds an extra

measure of precision, contributing to fuel efficiency and power output, as conditions demand. Controlled by the electronic control module, the intake and exhaust camshafts can adjust independently. Traditional iVCT engines can adjust only the intake cam. Ti-VCT in the 2014 Focus provides the advantage of precise, continuous adjustment of valve overlap when both the engine intake and exhaust valves are open at the same time. Part of what makes Focus so satisfying to drive is its fully engaging available 6-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission, which delivers seamless gear changes and excellent responsiveness. Focus is also designed to be flex fuel capable; you can have plenty of fun, without paying the price at the pump. Select models also include SelectShift® Automatic technology which allows you to change gears at the touch of a button. Electric power assist steering (EPAS) automatically adjusts to deliver precise responses at high speed, and optimal manoeuvreability at slower speeds when needed. Its pull-drift compensation technology constantly measures the driver’s steering

input, adapts to changing road conditions and helps compensate for slight directional shifts caused by factors such as uneven road surfaces or steady crosswinds. What you’ll notice are enhanced responsiveness and excellent control, specifically tuned for each Focus model. The variable ratio electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) on Focus ST is enhanced with a variable EPAS rack. This gives you more precise steering and means more aggressive tuning of the torque steer compensation and allows you to accelerate while still maintaining grip on roads with uneven surfaces. The system detects the torque steer that those conditions can create and counteracts the effect to help you maintain complete control. G-forces in a corner transfer more traction to your outside tires than to your inside ones. Our Torque Vectoring Control exploits that by transferring torque to the wheels that have the most grip, forcing the front end to hug the inside of each curve. AdvanceTrac® electronic stability control (ESC) with anti-lock brake system (ABS) is standard on every Ford Focus. This state-of-the-art system

constantly monitors road conditions and the driver’s responses, then adjusts engine power and applies ABS to help keep all the wheels firmly planted. ESC brings an added measure of handling confidence to the agility you’d expect in a Ford Focus. Technology Available SYNC® with MyFord Touch™ lets you do so much. It features an 8-inch LCD centre touch screen, a 4-inch LCD screen located on the instrument cluster for quick, easy viewing and dual USB ports. All it takes to use SYNC® with MyFord Touch™ are simple voice commands or the touch of a button. You can listen to song lists from your MP3 player, USB or portable hard drive. If someone calls you while you`re listening to your music, no problem – SYNC® with MyFord Touch™ alerts you. You can control the interior climate. And just say the word and you can command the available Navigation System to guide you to a destination. You’ll have your choice of fastest, shortest and EcoRoute. In this mode, the Navigation System instantly calculates the most fuel-efficient route and can help you achieve better fuel economy. All this can be done while you keep

your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. While you’re driving slowly near parking spots, simply activate available Active Park Assist and it will look for an available parking spot. Ultrasonic sensors measure the distance to the curb and between parked cars. Once a spot that is big enough is identified, you’re signaled to stop and accept the system’s assistance. All you do is control the shifting, accelerating and braking. Available Intelligent Access with push-button start spells an end to digging around for your keys. Simply have the keys in your pocket or on your person and you can gain keyless access to your focus. Once you are inside, simply put your foot on the brake and push the start button. You will be on your way in no time. It’s that easy. The available Navigation System combines global positioning system (GPS) technology with 3-D mapping and provides voice-guided turn-by-turn directions, giving you your choice of fastest, shortest, or EcoRoute mode that instantly calculates the most fuel-efficient route and can help you achieve better fuel economy.

Wise Owl Lookout Medical Frauds – “Miracle” cures are useless mail-order devices and ‘medicines’

– the Camrose Wise Owl Program

By Murray Green Augustana Vikings hockey coach Blaine Gusdal has been busy recruiting players for next fall. He has added Alex Rodgers to the lineup. If the name is familiar, it is because Alex played for the Alberta Golden Bears for three seasons. The university hockey veteran sat out last year due to an injury, but wanted to continue his studies in Camrose. Alex has two years left at the university level. His leadership will be a valuable addition to the Vikings. A few years ago Torrie Dyck left the Vikings to join the Bears. Both teams belong under the University of Alberta umbrella. Alex is the first Golden Bear to head to the Vikings. He scored six goals and added 27 assists in 58 regular season games with the Golden Bears. In five playoff games he recorded two assists. Entire line Coach Gusdal tried a different method of recruiting when he wanted some experienced players up front. Not only did he dig around in the British Columbia Inter-collegiate Hockey League for players, he scooped up an entire line from the Selkirk Saints. The transferring trio will hit the ice as a unit that will be familiar with playing together. Selkirk captured the BCIHL title this spring. The Vikings will be injecting some international experience as well. Australian Beau Taylor and American Connor McLaughlin joined Scott Swiston on a line of second year players. All three have three more years of eligibility left at the college level. Connor is the sniper on the line and garnered 22 goals and 37 points in 23 games. Beau scored 12 goals and collected 12 assists. Scott, the playmaker of the line, scored seven goals and added 14 assists. Beau and Connor led the team in scoring in the playoffs with four goals and two assists each in four games. Selkirk had a record of 20-3 and an overtime loss in 24 regular season games. With some seasoned forwards coming on board, coach Gusdal is now concentrating on adding defence. All three goalies on the Vikings last year will be returning this season.

By Murray Green Tanner Younghans has committed to the Camrose Kodiaks for next fall. The former midget player with Leduc, a 6’1-180 lb forward, is excited to come to Camrose. “Tanner did very well this past year even though he missed a few months with an injury. Some might have forgotten about him, but we didn’t,” said Kodiaks coach and general manager Boris Rybalka. “He most likely would have won the scoring race if he would have stayed healthy.” He is expected to join the main camp on Aug. 22. Next Wave conditioning Learn how to train like a pro in a camp for bantam and junior players. From Aug. 11 to 15 you will be able to see what it is like to train like a professional hockey player. With on ice and off ice training you will see what you need to do to get to the next level. Off-ice training will involve core training, explosive power, agility, speed, balance, cardio and many more aspects. The on-ice portion will involve individual skill development, which means better explosive power, speed, agility, quick transition, hand eye coordination, stick handling and passing techniques and much more. “We have had pro players (Nick Holden of the Colorado Avalanche and Joe Colborne of the Calgary Flames) train with us in the past and they have told the athletes that this is what is done at the NHL level,” said Boris. “It is a hard week of training, but it opens a lot of eyes in that the athletes find out that they have a ways to go to reach their goals as they may have not been training properly during the summer.” The help players receive prepares them for training camp. “It is an exciting week because these players will go back home to their club teams and we have hopefully given them some skills that they will be able to use during the year in their training,” said Boris. For more information visit the Kodiaks website and download a brochure at Minor hockey camp The week after, from Aug. 18 to 22, younger players will receive a new experience. “We looked at all of the different summer schools that are going on and something that the players need is conditioning,” said Boris.

Jennifer and I have lived in this wonderful community since August of last year. We are from Edmonton so this kind of busyness is irrelevant to us – we are used to that sort of thing. I can understand some people’s concerns about the traffic going through. My only concern is the odd time we get some young people with trucks speeding through.

Camrose Co-op hired Damon as a consultant to address some of the issues and concerns it had following the first public meeting on the project. “I am going to be helping them understand the design of what the City approves and how that is going to impact the Co-op on 48 Avenue with the construction,” said Damon, who has worked with the City of Edmonton on the water way developments in the Edmonton river valley. “We are going to try and work with the City to minimize the amount of disruption to services and of course the public coming to the Co-op.”
