City working on new lease for Seniors Society By Dan Jensen

City of Camrose administration is reviewing final details of a new five-year lease on the Mirror Lake Centre that will be presented to the Seniors Society for signing. The lease would see the Seniors Society pay $2,000 per month towards the reduction of its debt. “As it is anticipated that the debt would be paid off well before the five-year time frame, the lease will include that at that point in time the $2,000 per month would convert to lease payments,” explained City manager Damian Herle at the May 20 regular meeting of City council. “At the rate (the debt) is being paid off it would probably certainly be within a two or three year time frame.” The City of Camrose had an analysis of the Mirror Lake Centre’s market value completed in 2008 and is currently putting together information on what kind of work and upgrades are required. “I believe it is fair to comment, albeit somewhat preliminary, that this building will require upgrades of a significant magnitude,” said Herle. An area of immediate concern for both the City and the Seniors Society is a leaking roof. “There will be some testing done to determine the state of repair of that roof,” said Herle. “That will be done at minimal cost to the City because it only involves a flat portion of the roof, so I see that as being a stand alone issue.” The Camrose Seniors Society wants to have the roof leak fixed before investing any of its money, or money from the New Horizons Grant program it is hoping to receive this summer into renovations/repairs of the Mirror Lake Centre bathrooms. “We need to know that the roof is being looked after before we soak any of our funds into it (the bathroom),” said Camrose Seniors Society vice president Darlene VanHaitsma at the meeting. “We are going to have to match the (New Horizons) grant over and above $25,000.” The deadline for submitting a New Horizons grant application is July 4. Councillor Max Lindstrand questioned whether administration has had any discussions with the Camrose Seniors Society regarding its compatibility with other groups, or organizations that may be using the Mirror Lake Centre once the City of Camrose moves its offices to the new City Hall in 2015. “I would encourage discussions with the folks regarding compatibility and usage if we are going be renting portions of it,” he said. Herle noted he has discussed compatibility issues with the Seniors Society and has been in contact with another seniors group in Camrose, which has indicated a preference to stay where it is now. “We have not been marketing the spaces, simply making the inquiries as to whether there are synergies with likeminded groups,” said Herle, adding that administration will be seeking input from council when it comes to finding ways to fill the entire lower level and a portion of the upper floor.

Council redistricting clears way for new church By Dan Jensen

Camrose City council has given final reading to a bylaw that redistricts lot 29-38 on 47 Street between 53 and 54 Avenues from M1 Restricted Light Industrial to Institutional. The new zone will allow the construction of a new Camrose Word of Life Church. “The current M1 district does not allow (permitted or discretionary) for the development of a church,” said City building and development services director Shelley Munro in a report to council May 20. An open house on the proposed redistricting was held at the existing Camrose Word of Life Church May 12 after two weeks of advertising. “The open house was attended by five individuals,” said Munro. “Four people supported the application (for redistricting) and were pleased with the detailed site design and enhancement

of the site. One person did not support the application, feeling it was not compatible with adjacent uses. All attendants agreed that there was sufficient parking provided on-site for the church, a major concern which was raised through the consultation process.” In addition to the open house, Building and Development Services received one phone call and one email. The caller did not support the application because of incompatibility with adjacent uses and additional traffic generated through the development of the site. The person sending the email supported the application as sufficient parking would be provided on site. Munroe noted it is the opinion of administration that the neighbourhood in which the church is going to be built is in a state of transition, and that the redistricting application does not

deviate significantly enough from recent developments in the area to be refused. “Much of the area is low and medium residential,” said Munroe, “and an institutional use complements the existing development pattern.” The church concept plan, which will be evaluated at a later date, meets all minimum setback, lot coverage and lot size requirements in the City land use bylaw. Special district

Council also gave second and third readings to a bylaw that re-districts a lot on the east side of 49 Street between 46 and 47 Avenue from SDR1 – Special Residential District – to SD/H Special District/Historical District. The new zone will allow the development of a bed and breakfast in the dwelling while maintaining the existing residential use and quarter.

“A bed and breakfast is not a permitted use in the SDR1 – Special Residential District,” said a report provided to council by Munro. “The SD/H – Special District/Historical District lists a bed and breakfast as a discretionary use.” The property falls within the boundaries of the Augustana Neighbourhood Area Redevelopment Plan, which does not specifically note or make reference to the new development of bed and breakfasts. “The proposed development complies with the future vision and major guiding principles of the ANARP,” said Munro. “Section 3.2.1. states that to create a diverse community, it is important to achieve a mix of appropriate uses – residential led with small scale home based businesses and enhanced existing neighbourhood commercial facilities.” City administration did not request that the appli-

cant host an open house as part of the redistricting process. “The applicant does not intend to alter the exterior of the building and the impact on the greater community is expected to be minimal,” said Munro. “Administration did request that the applicant contact the Augustana Neighbourhood Association and have the association provide a letter either supporting or not supporting the proposed redistricting.” A summary of the redistricting application was sent to adjacent owners within sixty metres. Local improvements

Council gave third and final reading to six bylaws that will impose taxes on residents living along Grand Park Crescent between 48 Avenue and Grand Drive and 48 B Avenue between Grand Park Crescent for improvements to curb and gutter, a sidewalk, asphalt paving and curb bulb-out.

Support the cause By Murray Green

Employees from the Camrose branch of Western Financial Group will come together for the 10th annual Support the Cause walk to benefit the Western Communities Foundation on Wednesday, May 28.

How well I remember our excitement when the first beaver dam was built on my parents’ farm. We used to take visitors down to look at it, and we used to spend hours and hours watching the beavers at work. Fifty years later the destruction is complete. What was once a beautiful treed creek bottom is now a tangle of rotting logs and scrub brush. There is hardly a tree left on that little farm. I know poplar trees grow back but it takes

a lifetime to grow the beautiful large poplars that we like to enjoy on our nature walks. Successive colonies of beavers cut the poplar that does try to grow. Beaver are our largest North American rodent, and they have an average of three or four young ones a year. The yearlings live with the family for an additional year, and as three year olds they leave the mother colony to form new colonies. New dams and new beaver houses. I have a quarter of land that borders the south side of Camrose County. The beaver are out of control. On that half mile of creek there were 14 major beaver dams last summer. It was a big lake. The beaver were undermining the county roads, and they were dropping big poplar trees across the county roads. Thankfully, a kindly neighbour has been cutting the timber off of the road as it falls, but I worry about the liability of it all. If there were a serious injury accident, who would be responsible? The

beaver? The land owner? The County? The breaking point came last spring when my renter was in shorts and rubber boots and in water past her knees, operating a chain saw to remove fallen beaver cut timber from my fences. Surely that goes beyond the call of duty? So... action is being taken. A local neighbour shot over twenty beaver last spring. I hope he shot more this spring. The County of Stettler blew out three big dams. Late last fall I had a track hoe tear holes in eight dams. There are three dams left to go, and then the plan is to spend some more money to have a track hoe walk the creek bottom and totally remove the dams and beaver houses. At least the new colonies of beavers will have to start over, and hopefully the dams won’t be so huge. Why is this happening? Besides the public liability issues, I have about 40 acres of grazing land that is either under water or that cattle can’t get to. Cattle will not swim to get to their pasture.

Will I eliminate beaver from this quarter? Of course not, there are ever growing beaver populations on both sides of my land. The goal is not to eliminate the beaver, because it is impossible. The goal is to get some control of a bad situation. I might add that the beaver cut all of the poplar trees in the creek bottom years ago and they now live on willows. What a mess; half of it they drown out and it takes a very long time for a dead willow to fall down. Definitely no place to go for a walk unless you are good at bush whacking. I tell this story to illustrate the problems that can arise when wildlife is out of control. Beaver have few natural predators in our area and trappers and hunters are even more scarce. The city of Camrose is to be commended for taking control of its beaver situation before it gets out of hand and there is complete destruction of the natural riparian areas that we all enjoy walking in.

Wanita Voytechek goes to nationals for second straight year By Murray Green

Wanita Voytechek is going to nationals.

SAIT student and Camrose resident Wanita Voytechek won the gold medal in the baking component of Skills Alberta for the second straight year at the Expo Centre in Edmonton May 14 and 15. “With the help of four SAIT instructors, who would help me by looking over my work throughout the year, I was able to enter Skills Canada again,” explained Wanita. “In day one I had to make two marzipan figurines (used in cake decorating), so I made two turtles and two frogs. I had to make three kinds of French pasties. I made a lemon meringue tart, a raspberry mousse and a pear william choux. We have certain ingredients to use and those are the things that came to mind and lemon is always popular with everyone, so that is what I went with. The turtle and frog are just the animals I liked.” On day two, Wanita had to make a mystery box mousse cake. “I had to use three of the five mystery ingredients that I didn’t know. The ingredients I used were amaretto, cocoa nibs and buttermilk,” she shared. “I made a white amaretto mousse with buttermilk in

the sponge cake and cocoa nibs in my glaze and chocolate garnishes. That was easier for me this time.” Making chocolates was on her list of things to do. “I had to make a cut chocolate, so I made caramels. I had to make a molded chocolate and that was my rum chocolates. I then had to make a sugar show piece. We have certain height and width restrictions and you create a design,” she said. “I had six hours each day to finish my work. I also had to present certain things at certain times. My marzipan figures had to be finished by 2 p.m. on day one and the French pasties by 3 p.m. My chocolates and mousse cake were presented by 1 p.m. on day two. My sugar show piece was presented at 2 p.m. on day two.” A lot of work is packed into two days. “You want to show as many skills as possible and display techniques, so the more detail the better,” she added. Wanita will now represent Team Alberta at the Skills Canada national competition to be held in Toronto on June 5 and 6. She represented Northern Institute of Technology (NAIT) last year and transferred her

apprenticeship to the Southern Institute of Technology (SAIT) in Calgary. NAIT only offers the first year of the program. Judges watched her every move. “With the marzipan, judges look for appearance, weight and how it looks. With the pastries you have a size restriction, so they make sure it fits within the limits. They also mark on the flavour and they taste the entries,” continued Wanita. “That is the same with the mousse, but you also have to plate with a slice of cake and you have to present it with a sauce and design. Again, they judge it on appearance and whether you have the right amount of sauce. There were five judges.” Since one of the judges was from SAIT, Wanita will find out how she scored. “I was told that I had two solid days and I will find out more details later. The SAIT instructors want to see you improve, so I will receive that feedback.” The former Camrose Composite High School student and Camrose Safeway employee will use that knowledge at nationals next week.

Why choose carpet?


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

Q. A:

Are you able to show me properties listed by other real estate agents?

Absolutely! As a trained, eexperienced and licensed real estate aagent I can show you any property llisted for sale, regardless of listing aagent or office! Professional realtors have an excellent working relationship. We openly share the details of all properties listed. I personally make a point of trying to tour every property as it comes on the market. This way I am comfortable knowing I will not waste your time. Finding the right property can be a complex, daunting and time-consuming undertaking. My objective, when working with you, is to determine the type of home, cottage, vacant lot or business, you need to best suit your needs. This includes size, amenities, location, and price range. By knowing the market as I do, I can efficiently narrow down the search and in turn, save you time and money. I have worked hard for clients who have been extremely specific in their property search. By the same token, I have represented first-time home purchasers who have only a vague idea of what they can afford and know little about the market. Trust me to help you in your real estate search.


What important aspect of travel do your clients tend to often overlook?


In one word – INSURANCE. Many clients wrongly assume their existing c personal p policy or employee benefits will w provide adequate coverage. Alberta Health Coverage policies, as an example, H only cover out-of-province hospitalization charges to a maximum of $100 per day. Policies frequently do not cover hospitalization in Quebec, out-of-country medical treatment or air ambulance service. The unexpected can and does happen while people are vacationing! The result is not limited to a disrupted or ruined vacation. Often the impact comes with overwhelming, if not impossible, medical bills. At Bridges Travel, our experts in the field of travel are well-versed on policy limitations. Your travel counsellor is equally knowledgeable about appropriate levels of affordable and appropriate levels of travel insurance, including trip cancellation policies. We offer a plan which will cover you for travel within Canada only, or a policy that will protect you regardless of where you may go. Or, we can provide details pertaining to an annual plan which will allow you and your family to be protected year-round. Stop in whether you’re driving, flying, pedaling or paddling, as part of your next trip. Answer provided by:

Do you have any natural and safe mosquito repellents? We love spending time outdoors but hate having to cover ourselves with mosquito spray.


Mozi—Q is your answer! For all outdoor enthusiasts and anyone who has reactions to bug bites – there is now an easy to use oral repellent that allows you to enjoy the outdoors without being “bugged” There has been much “buzzing” about Mozi-Q ever since its founder Erin Bosch appeared on the very popular entrepreneur show “Dragon’s Den” and had the investment tycoons loving her product! A Calgary resident, health food store owner, and a homeopathic expert, Erin has developed an easy to use oral insect repellent. It is all natural, and completely non- toxic with absolutely no side effects! Mozi-Q significantly reduces the frequency of mosquito bites as well as the reactions that people have to them. No more itching and big red bumps! Mozi-Q works within 30 minutes of taking it, and can be taken every 3-5 hours. It also works on other bugs, such as ticks. No more smelly sprays or stinky coils. This could revolutionize the whole outdoor experience! Answer provided by:

Q. A:

IIs planning an out-ofccountry wedding a lot of extra work? o

Destination weddings are virtually eeffortless for the bride and groom. Your Marlin Travel wedding planner is highly M eexperienced and very well connected, world-wide, so your destination wedding w becomes a lifelong positive memory. As a testament to our commitment to be the preferred destination wedding specialists in east central Alberta, I have just returned from the Mayan Riviera where I trained with Colin Cowie, (Oprah’s famous party planner). A contingent of Marlin Travel wedding plan specialists and I toured numerous Mexican 4 and 5 star facilities, each expert at hosting international wedding parties. We toured guest rooms, banquet facilities, restaurants and interviewed their hospitality managers. We asked tough questions and upon leaving each resort, analyzed their strengths in terms of location, food quality, desirability of location, quality of ocean view, etc. We evaluated menu options, food quality and hospitality level. We now have a wonderful roster of prime destinations for Alberta brides and grooms. If a wedding is in your future, stop in. We can show you photos and describe resorts that match your budget. We dare say no one can put together a wedding package like we can. Wherever, whenever you want to marry, count on us. Answer provided by:

Could my teenager have a hearing problem?


Teenagers often seem to be in their oown world, not paying attention to what’s happening at home or in school. But when h tteens are truly having trouble hearing you, it’s time to take action. Teens who have been it exposed to loud music over a period of time may complain of ringing in the ears (also known as tinnitus) or of a sensation of fullness, as if their ears are plugged. Hearing loss can also be caused by ear infections or trauma, and it’s important to get to the bottom of the problem quickly if you suspect your teen has a hearing problem. For infants, children and teens, even minor hearing loss can make communication difficult, and can have long-lasting consequences. A child’s self-image may be negatively affected by hearing loss, their ability to learn may be compromised, and children with hearing loss may experience difficulty developing social skills. Signs of hearing loss in older adults are often wrongly attributed to other age-related issues such as dementia. Forgetfulness may be a sign that your loved one has simply missed part of a conversation due to a hearing problem. If an older adult communicates well in one-to-one conversations, but has difficulty hearing in a group situation, hearing loss may be to blame. Finally, if a older person who was once engaged and socially active becomes withdrawn, irritable or inattentive, chances are strong that they are suffering from hearing loss and should be seen by a hearing specialist.

Should we build or buy an existing home?


There is no perfect answer to this question. However, choosing one or the other is important. It gives one immense pride and is a wonderful way to save money in the long run. Imagine having a paid and appreciating asset well before retirement! Building takes time and energy. The beauty, conversely, is that you get to choose everything – from your lot (I am presently selling wonderful lots in the Valleyview West subdivision) to floorcoverings and paint colors. You will enjoy everything brand new so you will not have to budget for improvements or renovations for years. Renovations are often more costly than scratch building and finding renovators is sometimes difficult. Building from the ground up may also give you a more energy efficient home. Today’s new construction is very impressive in terms of energy savings. The biggest advantage to building from the ground up is that you get exactly what you want in the location you choose. Perhaps the biggest disadvantage is the possibility of going over budget. When you buy an existing home you know exactly what you’re paying and overruns will not happen.

Calvary Pentecostal Church celebrates new location By Murray Green

The Calvary Pentecostal Church has a celebration lined up to share with you. The church totally renovated the old Extra Foods downtown location to turn it into a loving and welcoming place of worship. However, it is more than that with community events and a new day care opening for the summer. Calvary Pentecostal Church (CPC) members are inviting the community to join them in a full day of celebration on Sunday, June 1. Service begins at 10 a.m. and is followed by a RSVP lunch at noon, a cake reception and building tour at 2 p.m. and a dedication service beginning at 3 p.m. “In our old location it seemed like it wasn’t fitting into the heart of our church (people). We wanted to be where the people are to meet the needs of the community,” explained Pastor Clayton Milgate. “A lot of involvement has been with the soup kitchens and helping people downtown. This really fit who we were. If you asked where our church was before, a lot people didn’t know.” The move wasn’t easy. “It has been lots of perseverance and trusting God in what we as a leadership and congregation believed His will for us was. We’ve had a lot of closed doors and disappointments over the year, but it didn’t make us give up,” said Pastor Milgate. “The lesson that stands out to me about this journey comes from Hebrews 10:36, ‘You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.’ We believed and moved forward as a congregation together based on the affirmation, “It seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us…(Acts 15:28). It took faith to take the step but when we did our part God did make a way, and continues to lead us.” Early days

Calvary Pentecostal Church early beginnings started as they met in the Langbell home. It was in these meetings

that a group of people started to plant the seed of a church in Camrose. In 1934, the congregation moved in a church building on the corner of 5211-50 Ave. At this time, CPC rented from the Seventh-Day Adventists for about seven years. Rent was $9 a month and the building was bought for the rent paid plus $1,000. On Oct. 18, 1976, CPC held a business meeting and a decision was made (after 42 years) to sell their building and build a new one. On Easter Sunday 1977, CPC turned sod for their new building. On Oct. 18, 1977, the church had its first prayer meeting in our new Fellowship Hall. On Jan. 29, 1978, they moved into the Sanctuary. On Easter Sunday, 1978, the church held a dedication service. “In 2002, CPC began a journey of God leading us to take the next step for our future. It was agreed by our congregation that God wanted us to step out more in reaching our city, and this included moving to a new place of worship,” said Pastor Milgate, who is the 20th leader in the church history. “There were lots of ideas, many decisions acted on, but unfortunately the door would close. We had prayed for land and looked at other buildings, but there was not a solution yet. For the next 10 years, we had a tenacity that kept us coming back to the need of stepping out in what our next chapter would be.” In the late part of 2011, the congregation explored the option of moving into the previous Extra Foods building, in the city centre area. “I remember walking into the building for the first time and being surprised with the size of it. However, this did not deter us as a congregation, but only stirred our hearts for the size of our vision and it gave us a dream of what God could do in this place for our community for the glory of God. This proceeded with discussions and special business meetings where decisions were

made by our congregation in 2012,” recalled Pastor Milgate. He was instantly taken with the pillars and peak roof of the old grocery store and thought it would make a great facility for a church. It looks like a church from the outside. Inside, there was a lot of work to be done. The city was quick to help the church make the move possible. “This is where you can see God’s hand leading us as a congregation. In our business meetings every motion made to proceed and purchase the building was done with 100 per cent agreement, which meant a lot. We are very grateful to the ownership group of the building because they were very gracious and helpful to work with us through the whole process to obtain the keys to purchase. We truly believe that it was a win-win deal for both of us, and we are truly thankful.” The journey of purchasing the building took about a year to have everything in place and approved. “We were able to purchase the building and be approved for financing because of generous givers. Our fundraising campaign was called ‘Share the Dream’. We started this project with no money in the bank, but we believed that unless God was leading us there would be no

possible way to see this vision come to fruition,” he added. “With my first conversations and then our first meeting with the district office, to have them approve the dream and vision that we had, there was some concern about our ability to take on this project. In the meeting the question was asked what would it take to get us approval for financing and their blessing. The answer was a certain amount of money which was six figures, something absolutely impossible and then a firm offer of sale on our existing building. Within 10 days of that meeting those conditions were met, we had the money in the account and a firm offer from another church to purchase our building, we knew God was moving us,” said Pastor Milgate. The church struck a deal with the Seventh Day Adventist church to use their building until June 30, 2013. “We spent the next four months in the Norsemen Inn for services. We were so thankful for both of these groups helping us in the transition, while our new building was being renovated,” he continued. On Nov. 3, 2013, Calvary Pentecostal Church had its first service at 4920-48 Street. “It was an amazing time as we had truly entered into a new season as a church in a new building. Throughout the project we had amazing volunteers who gave many hours to lead the project forward. We were able to have most of the project done locally, which was great connection to our community,” said Pastor Milgate. “Our church exists to help make our community stronger. We are here for our city and want to, as a church, bring something of value and beauty to it by making a difference,” he said. “Everything we do as a church must carry a purpose of giving and helping our community. Our slogans are ‘We are here to give…’ and ‘New life begins at Calvary’.” “There is an excitement in our church for what God is doing among us and in our city. We hand out bread on Fridays to 50 to 70 people and we are starting Martha’s Table on Thursdays beginning on June 5.” New endeavor

“Along with the new church

we are excited to announce the beginning of First Steps Learning Centre, which will be a day care and a before/after school program. Our director Suzanne Moore, is not new to Camrose but was actually involved in starting and working in other day cares in Camrose,” said Pastor Milgate. “From the first day we saw this new building, there was a sense of a greater vision needed to support our community. We then investigated the need for Learning Centres in Camrose and found that there was a waiting list for children,” said Pastor Milgate. “Our goal is to provide a safe environment but also to enable the child to develop to his or her optimum potential in all aspects,” said Suzanne. “We believe that child care should be the extension of the home, supplementing what the child is learning at home.” The learning centre will focus on the intellectual development of good work habits and learning through play. “First Steps will provide care for children from birth to age 12. If a parent chooses not to take a year off after having a child and only wants to take six months off, we can provide qualified care. For those in school, there will also be a before and after school program, to help with those needs,” shared Suzanne. “Our goal is to open in July and by September have our full program up and running which will include home cooked meals on site.” For more information on the First Steps Learning Centre contact Suzanne at 780-6724691. Tours are available on June 1 2 to 2:45 p.m., and information will be made available. “We have a church that has great diversity of ethnic backgrounds and all ages. We are focused on missions local and globally,” the pastor concluded. Staff members include Lead Pastor Clayton (wife Susan and family Cody, Daine, Janae and Ty), Youth Pastor Zachary Dye-Wilson (wife Karemi and family Hudson), program director for First Steps Learning Centre Suzanne Moore (husband Raymond and family Janaiya-Shay, Tahairah, Davion, Aalijay-Faith), administration assistant Paulette Sveahun and caretaker Garnett Kellert.

Old time fiddling at CRE May 30 and then play it for my dad to see if he liked it. I had the recordings and music books that Don put out,” said Scott. “Although I was too young to watch his shows live, I learned to play like him. He had a smooth, no nonsense approach and I modelled that style.” Scott and his performers are currently on a 68 concert tour from March 22 to July 1. The Canadian fiddle champion is a crowd favorite across the prairies. He revamps his show every year to give audiences a fresh experience. He is a multiple winner of the Canadian Open and Grand Masters Fiddle contests. Scott is a sixth generation fiddler. He was the musical director and played the part of Don Messer in Memories of Don Messer’s Jubilee that toured extensively throughout Canada for eight years, including several shows at the Mirror Lake Centre. Now he wants to share those memories again. “I remember going to Camrose several times with the Don Messer show and playing at the senior centre. The prairies, especially Saskatchewan and Alberta, have really supported our shows well and it will be exciting to go back and meet some of those friends again. It’s where we have the most fans. Our show is very rural-minded and grass roots, and they just love the fiddle music.” He now has his own family tradition of old time music started by his father and the Merv Woods Orchestra back in 1950. Scott’s mother, Carolyn, often plays piano with the band today. Scott studied classical violin from age four. He also

Scott Woods is bringing his Old Time Jubilee concert back to Camrose as a tribute to Don Messer. Scott and his band perform an authentic live tribute to Don Messer’s Jubilee, which was one of the most popular television shows in Canadian history. The concert will be held on Friday, May 30, at 7 p.m., in Camrose Regional Exhibition’s Kinsmen Hall. The show reunites grand master fiddle champion Scott (as Don Messer), Cape Breton tenor Tommy Leadbeater (as Charlie Chamberlain) and East Coast Music Award winner Bruce Timmins (as Cecil McEachern). “We are honouring the characters, but not impersonating them. We are evoking memories through the music. We talk about the names and the history since they were on the radio at about 1939,” explained Scott. “This is quite an undertaking because they are big shoes to fill and to honour these wonderful stars from that era. We are informing young people about the history as well.” The concert also features the smooth vocals of Lynda Lewis (as Marg Osborne) and Canadian step dance champion Kyle Waymouth in a two-hour tribute, honouring the days when Don Messer and his Islanders ruled the airwaves. The fast paced, uplifting show delights audiences of all ages with old time fiddle music, sensational step dancing, trick fiddling, family humour and more. “As a child, I remember that Don Messer had set the gold standard from which all fiddlers tried to play like. My uncle would learn a tune from the radio or television

plays several other instruments, but his favourite is fiddle – whether it’s classical, jazz, big band, country, swing, Celtic, or old time music. His love of fiddling has been passed down through six generations of his family. “When people in the audience nudge each other and say ‘I remember my grandfather playing that song’ or ‘I remember my mother dancing in the kitchen to that song’ it all makes it worthwhile to us as performers,” he added. “We are both recalling memories and making new ones for people through our music and show. It makes it worthwhile for me. We have lots of young people tag along with parents and grandparents and then say that was a great show.” Scott can turn somersaults and step dance while playing the fiddle. For seven years Scott was the musical director and played the part of Don in Memories of Don Messer’s Jubilee. He combines his superb playing ability with a wonderful sense of humour, along with other talented musicians who join him on stage. This is truly a show to be enjoyed. “You don’t have to be a fiddle or country music fan to enjoy our show,” added Scott. “We keep it fast paced with a lot of music and not a lot of talking. We put on a family show for all ages.” If you enjoy fiddling at its best, you don’t want to miss this show.

“It will be more of the same, but making different things out of the ingredients. I will also have a height restriction on the pastries. You have to adjust to the instructions and also if something goes wrong,” explained Wanita. “My meringue didn’t go right, so instead of piping it, I just made sure my pastry was level and I had a flat meringue but it still worked out.” With each judge hav-

ing a different opinion, it is hard to predict how they will mark it. “I made sure it tasted good and just hope they liked my design,” said Wanita. “My high school teacher, Matthew Stinson, got me into baking and he supported me last year when the NAIT instructors were not around. He was really supportive. This year, the SAIT instructors made themselves more available.” But, that didn’t stop

Wanita from seeking her former teacher’s advice. “I called him several times. He came to watch again this year and that was very nice. It shows how interested in you he is after you leave school,” she said. “I want to show what I can do and use those skills for getting a job and also in that job. Eventually, I want to own my own bakery. But, I want to gain experience first. It is exciting and nice to represent Alberta at nationals.”

Seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Chat Honouring Our Elders And Remembering Bob Submitted by Camrose Seniors Coalition

The week of June 2 to 8 is Seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Week in Alberta. For many years, now, the Alberta government and local municipalities have proclaimed the first week in June as a great week to honour seniors. Seniors Rock! So says the poster distributed provincewide, bearing greetings from the Honourable Fred Horne, Minister of Health, the Honourable Dave Quest, Associate Minister of Health for Seniors, and MLA Alana DeLong, who chairs the Seniors Advisory Council for Alberta. During the week of June 2 to 8, Camrose Seniors Coalition encourages everybody to thank seniors for the contributions that they have made, and continue to make, to their families and to our community. Seniors carry our history in their heads, in their hearts and in their bones. They turn up at events and help out. They provide leadership, have influence and make decisions. They email and skype and LOL at Youtube videos. They dance. (Three dance clubs at the Mirror Lake Centre alone!) And, they are passing the torch to those of us who are

in training to become seniors ourselves. As we think about ways to honour our elders, not just during the first week in June, but all year round, Camrose Seniors Coalition has turned inward. We, too, have Coalition elders we need to honour, seniors who have already passed the torch. Anne Laskosky and Annie Mikasko. Glenn Lett and George Evenson. Ella Thompson and Elizabeth Ruge. George Burdett and Georg Sieleman. Asgeir Ingebergson and Bob Smith. (Just to name a few.) Ah yes. Bob Smith. Around this time last year, we learned that Bobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cancer had returned and that it was terminal. Bob was our co-chair. He helped emcee Celebrating Seniors Day the previous fall, and he was supposed to be in our photo op to celebrate Seniors Week 2013. Instead, he was in hospital. He passed away on August 1. (Bob was actually Reverend Smith, but once, when we were writing a letter to City Council, and I typed in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Reverend Bob Smithâ&#x20AC;? he stopped me and said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;No. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just Bob.â&#x20AC;?) Bob wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;just Bobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, though. Everyone knew him â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he kind of made sure of that. Bob was passionate about seniors and about

Seniors Coalition, and he was never one to miss an opportunity to lobby â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the powers that beâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; about both. He had an archive of minutes, clippings, thoughts, and achievements. He was going to write a history of Camrose Seniors Coalition one day. He never got to do that, but we can share a few of the landmarks as we remember Bob â&#x20AC;&#x201C; landmarks that are, in many ways, Bobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legacy. Seniors Chat was Bobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idea. We are grateful to The Camrose Booster for continuing this monthly column. Way back in the day, Seniors Coalition did a lot of work around seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; transportation, which morphed into transportation period; Camrose City Council now has a Transportation Advisory Committee. Thanks to Bob, and his Coalition cohorts, we also have Service Options for Seniors, an invaluable community service that was once an idea at a Seniors Coalition meeting. Over the years, with Bobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help and encouragement, Camrose Seniors Coalition has written letters, organized presentations and hosted opportunities for local seniors to provide input into provincial initiatives. Celebrating Seniors Day started under Bobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership, as did Elders in Care. Continued on page 27

Jayla Kucy wins golf tournament on junior tour By Murray Green

Jayla Kucy fired an 85 score to win the atom girls division of the Maple Leaf Junior Worlds Qualifier Golf Tour on May 17 and 18 in Lacombe. About 100 golfers competed in the 18 and under combined tournament. Those 12 and under used it as a qualifier at the Lacombe Golf and Country Club. Golfers are competing for titles in

Kiwanis hold bike safety inspection Approximately 60 young children will be riding their bikes more safely this summer on the streets and alleys of Camrose thanks to their participation in the annual spring bike check, which this year was spearheaded by the Camrose and District Kiwanis club. On the Mother’s Day weekend, and in partnership with several other organizations with child safety at heart, the club was able to provide a place for kids to get their bikes checked after a long winter, as well as correct helmet fitting and lessons on street safety provided by the City of Camrose police service and the local detachment of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The bike check and tune-up was provided free of charge by Green Gear (which also provided a bike for the door prize). The helmet fitting and sizing was part of an ongoing project from Alberta Health Services and Alberta Traffic Safety. “Our mandate is to work with kids and the club is so happy that so many young kids will be riding safer on our streets this summer,” said club president Amber Vowles. “We are thankful for everyone who volunteered their time this year and particularly the City of Camrose, which provided the Max McLean Arena and Canadian Tire which provided the bike for the Bike Raffle. We are looking forward to next year’s event!” Information on the Camrose and District Kiwanis club can be obtained by contacting the club at 4522-71 Street Close, Camrose, Alberta, T4V 5B4.

Bauer knows God has purpose for his life By Dan Jensen

Camrose Police Service constable and triathlete Kelly Bauer knows God has a plan and a purpose for his life. “Because He is personal to me I have faith that He is in control, no matter what happens good or bad,” said Bauer, who was the guest speaker at the Camrose Ministerial Association’s fourth annual prayer breakfast at the Norsemen Inn, May 14. “I know that God has a purpose and a plan.” Bauer was able to catch a glimpse of that plan when, after an 18 year career in agriculture which included several years as an elevator manager, he was forced to look for a new career. “Even though I had a nice severance package I still had a lot of pressure to provide for my family and have a career,” said Bauer, who was told after he was baptized to expect to be tested. “I felt pretty lost going to that job and over the next few weeks I prayed hard for (God’s) direction.” It was during that difficult time that he remembered the advice he received from an RCMP sergeant nearly 20 years before, when he had expressed an interest in police work, to obtain some life experience. “I went to an information meeting with the RCMP but quickly decided that wasn’t who I wanted to work for,” he said. “Coming out of training and not knowing where I would relocate my family to and then having to relocate several times after that wasn’t for me at my stage in life. Nor did I want to police or live in a big city like Edmonton.” That was then that he saw an ad that said the Camrose Police Service was hiring and made arrangements to speak with now deputy chief Lee Foreman. After completing his cognitive skills and communication tests, Bauer took what was explained to him would be a tough fitness test and posted the highest score of all the applicants. “I kind of like to say

Kelly Bauer

that I broke the mold that used to be used for only employing the 25-ish guys,” said Bauer. “In just two and a half months I went from having a successful management role in a business that I new to shovelling dirt to having a new career in policing.” Bauer’s success in the fitness tests were the result of a promise he had made to a superior years earlier to continue the running that he had been required to do every morning as part of a management fitness course. “Not only did I keep running but I started competing in the sport of triathlon,” said Bauer. “I started competing in 2002 and it soon became part of my lifestyle. If I hadn’t gotten into the sport not only would I have not had the fitness to apply as a police officer but I wouldn’t have had the confidence either.” Like other triathletes,

Bauer started at the entry sprint level then worked his way up to full iron man. In 2012 he competed in his first Iron Man Canada competition, an event that consisted of swimming 3.8 km, cycling 180 km and then running a 42.2 km marathon. He completed the course in a time of nine hours and 41 minutes, which was just six minutes off the record for his age group, and as a result was able to qualify for the Iron Man World Championship in Hawaii. Bauer believes that as amazing as the world championship was, it was just a race. “I believe God has used triathlon to teach me so much more about life,” he said. “Training for the sport obviously has physical benefits but it has also taught me to balance the three disciplines of swimming biking and running and how to balance life. Not only in

my training but my career, my family and my faith.” Triathlon has also taught Bauer how to run his own race, regardless of what others around him in the race or in life are doing. “All those hours of training and racing gives me so much time to clear my mind of all the distractions in life and allows me to really focus. It is my time alone with God. “Not only does it allow me to enjoy and appreciate nature around me, which I admit is a lot easier in Hawaii or Cuba or Victoria or Vancouver or Mexico, it gives me a time to thank God for all the blessings in my life. It gives me a time to ask Him to take charge and to ask Him to deal with the concerns I may have. I have gained so much confidence that He is real and in control, and I can take that confidence into all aspects of my life.” Bauer said prayer does not guarantee that he will have the perfect race, that he will be the perfect police officer, husband, father or Christian, or that he will never be tested and experience bad things that come his way. “Prayer is just asking God to be in control and fully trusting in Him. It takes the pressure off competing and it takes the pressure off worries in life.” Bauer said the recent tragedy at St. Paul shows that police officers, as well as those who serve in fire and EMS, need to have the confidence and ability to react at dangerous situations. “It is just around the corner and can happen to anyone of us, but having faith and praying, and knowing that others are praying for us, like our chaplain, Brian Krushel, gives me the confidence to execute when called upon. So whether it is the sound of a cannon that starts a race at an iron man event or responding to an alarm or a 911 call or another emergency situation, my faith has given me the courage and confidence to succeed in all aspects of life.”

Honouring our elders Continued from page 24

Bob would be proud of Elders in Care. The contact list exceeds 100! But Bob’s pride wouldn’t be so much about numbers as about the fact that Elders in Care addresses a very real need – the need for seniors to safely, confidently and in the company of one another, express their fears about the current state and future direction of facility-based seniors care in Alberta. Seniors need to be heard. Seniors have a life-long capacity to keep growing no matter how frail they might become. Seniors are people and they belong to our community. So, let’s include them, always, and let’s care for them, all ways. Finally, let’s not forget that seniors are also a lot of fun, and that they most definitely rock! Thanks Bob. We miss you.

Grateful Grannies Stride to Turn the Tide Submitted


Murray Green, Camrose Booster

Robert Warren of Bittern Lake won the grand prize of a year membership from the Augustana Fitness Centre coordinator Jalene Johnsen, left, and Primary Care Network executive director Stacey Strilchuk. The winner enjoyed the Goin’ for a Jaunt Virtual Trek through Newfoundland, his former home province.

The Camrose Grateful Grannies are proud to participate in Stride to Turn the Tide, the annual national fundraising walk of the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign, taking place on Saturday, June 16, in Jubliee Park beginning at 10:30 a.m. Thousands of Canadian grandmothers have determinedly made a decision that with every footstep across the country, they will walk in solidarity with the thousands of African grandmothers who support their orphaned grandchildren, thus turning the tide of the AIDS pandemic in their communities. Participants in Stride to Turn the Tide will raise awareness and funds for the grasroots organizations in sub-Saharan Africa, with whom the Stephen Lewis Foundation works. Funds raised from the national walk will be used to provide African grandmothers with critical support such as nutritious food, support groups, housing, income generating grants, grief counseling and school fees for their grandchildren. African grandmothers walk with a purpose. They walk to far-away clinics and markets. They walk to collect water and to deliver their grandchildren safely to school. They walk to provide urgent home-based care and to protest violations of their human rights. African grandmothers are changing the course of the pandemic – they stride and the tide is turning in their communities. Support the local Grannies with your pledges. You may do that by sponsoring a local Grateful Grannie member, pledging on line at or by phoning Signe at 780-679-2254.

VIP Club’s 15th Walk for Independence June 1 By Dan Jensen

The Camrose VIP (Visually Impaired Persons) Club has been assisting people with vision impairments for the last 30 years. “The club was started by Bob Burgess (founder of the Burgess School) to provide peer support to those who had lost their sight or were experiencing a decline in their vision,” said VIP Club president Randy Simmet. “He knew that people who have lost their sight often feel alone and need to be with others who are in the same predicament as them. They don’t want to be viewed as zombies just because they have to bring something right up to their face to read.” The Camrose VIP Club currently has 25 members who meet the first Monday of the month on the lower level of the Camrose Public Library. “We try to address issues at the meetings that members want to know about, from changes in eye conditions and coping with vision loss and impairment to turning on the stove (without getting burned) and marking cans in the cupboard so they can be easily identified,” said Simmet. Meetings also feature presentations on the different services and technologies available to those with vision loss, including Victor Readers (condensed versions of audio books) that are available at Camrose Public Library, and closed circuit televisions (CCTVs) which essentially use video equipment to enlarge the written word on a television monitor. The Camrose VIP Club hosts a number of events throughout the year, the next being the 15th annual Ron McVee Memorial Walk

The Camrose VIP Club is looking forward to the 15th annual Ron McVee Memorial Walk in Mirror Lake Park June 1. Club members are, left to right, back, Laura Wiens, Bev Jones, Bruce Wiens, Leone Holmberg, Delores Karpovich, Roseanne Griffith, Art Parsons, Lee Griffith, left to right, front, Sandy Johnson, Kaethi Riexinger (treasurer), Randy Simmet (president), Joyce McVee (secretary), Lois Torpe and Evelyn Parsons.

(Walk Towards Independence) at Mirror Lake Park Sunday, June 1. Registration will be held at the Bill Fowler Centre starting at 1 p.m., with the walk itself to follow at 2 p.m. “We’re hoping to have a fun day, with the walk, a barbecue and socializing,” said Simmet. “We’ll be handing out t-shirts and Walmart gift cards. The mayor or one of his representatives is usually there to say a few words to the walkers before they get underway.” The Ron McVee Memorial Walk typically raises $5,000 in the way of pledges, money that is turned over to the CNIB (formerly the Canadian National Institute for the Blind). “It helps to pay for informational material provided by the CNIB, seniors programming, CNIB assessments and the first white cane, sweeping cane or identification that people receive once they are declared legally blind,” said Camrose VIP

Club secretary Joyce McVee. “All the funds stay in Alberta, and that is important to us.” The VIP Club also has spring and fall picnics, and is in the process of planning a trip to Peaceful Valley in July. The CNIB club believes many in Camrose with low vision problems do not receive the wide variety of rehabilitation, accessibility and technological services available to them because of a lack of awareness. “We want to raise awareness of vision problems and CNIB client services,” said McVee. “Membership is open to anyone in the area who has vision loss, as well as anyone who is associated with a person with vision loss.” The Camrose VIP Club recommends six simple steps to help prevent vision loss. 1. Have your eyes examined regularly by an eye care professional and don’t ignore changes in your vision. Seri-

ous eye conditions such as glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) can be present in your eye without any symptoms of eye disease. Other conditions, such as diabetic retinopathy, can progress rapidly if left untreated. Early detection is important to ensure prompt diagnosis and treatment. 2. Quit for your eyes. People who smoke are nearly seven times more likely to develop AMD, which is the number one cause of significant vision loss in people over 50 in Canada. Quitting now can reduce the risk. 3. Get healthy. Vegetables and fruits are good for your eyes. Choose dark, leafy greens like spinach and romaine lettuce, lots of bright-coloured citrus fruits, and foods rich in vitamins C and E, beta-carotene and zinc. 4. Keep active. Excess weight, a sedentary lifestyle and high blood pressure are all risk factors for AMD and diabetic retinopathy.

5. Protect your eyes from sunlight. Exposure to sunlight is associated with a higher risk of developing AMD and cataracts. Wear a hat with a brim and choose sunglasses that provide at least 98 per cent protection from ultraviolet rays. When playing sports or working with power tools, protect your eyes with Canadian Standards Associationapproved safety glasses or goggles. You don’t need a prescription for them and most hardware and sporting goods stores carry a good selection. 6. Consider supplements. If you are diagnosed with AMD, talk to your eye-care professional about using high-dosage antioxidant supplements.

Parents have the right to have their child educated in Francophone schools Submitted by

Cercle local de Battle-River Section 23: a right, an asset—but above all, a gift! (text edited from original by Glen Taylor, with permission). Are you a section 23 rights holder? Rights holders are parents who can enrol their children in a francophone school because they qualify under section 23 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Section 23 applies to anglophone residents of Quebec and francophones who live elsewhere in Canada. In the territories and provinces outside Quebec, it can be summed up this way. The following parents have the right to have their children educated in a francophone school: 1. Canadian citizens whose first language learned and still understood is French. 2. Canadian citizens who have received their primary school instruction in Canada in French. 3. Canadian citizens of whom any child has received or is receiving primary or secondary school instruction in French in Canada. It’s the parents who hold the right granted under section 23. When they exercise that right, however, it’s their children who benefit—not only when they’re young, but for their entire lives. The benefits even extend to their own children. Outside the province of Quebec, section 23 applies first of all to francophones—

that is, people who speak French because it’s their mother tongue. They may have been born in Edmonton or Edmundston, Qu’Appelle or Quebec City, or anywhere else in Canada (or in another country, provided they’re now Canadian citizens). Whether they’re part of a francophone couple or an “exogamous” couple (if their partner is a non-francophone) in no way affects their status as rights holders. In fact, non-francophone parents in exogamous couples gain section 23 rights themselves when their children attend a francophone school, since they then satisfy the third criterion. The second category of rights holders includes Canadian citizens who aren’t necessarily francophone by birth but who attended a French primary school. Consider the example of an Anglophone couple living in Montreal in 1978 who decide to send their daughter to a French primary school. The girl grows up and, in 2005, moves to Red Deer. Since she meets the second criterion of section 23, she has the right to offer her own children the same opportunity she had to learn French and integrate into Franco-Canadian culture. The third category applies to parents of children whose sister or brother attends or has attended a French primary, junior high or senior high school in Canada. This includes blended families or those who move to Alberta from a province

or territory where the older children have already begun their schooling in French. By enrolling them in a francophone school, the parents can ensure that all their children receive a similar education. It’s worth noting that the French education we are referring to does not include instruction received in a French immersion program. The reason is this: immersion is not intended for francophones, but rather for non-francophone students who learn French as a second language. Its mandate is different from that of a francophone school, since it is designed for a different clientele and geared to different outcomes. Rights holders as defined in section 23 make up the vast majority of the Francophone school communities. However, the Alberta government and some school boards interpret the Charter more generously by allowing certain other parents to enrol their children in francophone schools. The broader interpretation of section 23 is based on an Alberta Education policy that you’ll find explained in detail in a document called Affirming francophone education, available online on the Education Alberta website. This publication sets out the framework for francophone education in Alberta, and serves as a model in various other parts of the country. The government’s policy is intended for parents with

francophone roots who, for different reasons, don’t speak French but wish to reintegrate this mother tongue into their children’s lives. If you read the last issue, you might already be thinking of the four generations of Franco-Albertans who were unable to have their children educated in French. Other parents who may enrol their children in a Francophone school are immigrants or permanent residents who come from francophone countries like Haiti or Rwanda. In addition, a few other exceptional cases may be permitted at the discretion of the school board superintendent. National charters are usually written in general terms that identify and guarantee fundamental, universal rights. In this context, section 23 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is quite unique, since it applies specifically to the members of Canada’s two official-language minorities. It also grants an individual right that has a direct, significant impact on entire communities. Before the Charter was adopted, and for a number of years afterwards, the education system put francophones at a disadvantage. There were several reasons for this, including the fact that members of the anglophone majority could neither fully understand francophones’ needs nor meet those needs within the existing school system.

Huseby competes in culinary arts Submitted

Bawlf Grade 12 student Madison Huseby competed against 28 other students from across Alberta in the culinary arts portion of the Skills Alberta competition at Edmonton Northlands May 14 and 15 after successfully winning her third in a row regional competition in Vermilion May 2. At the provincial event Madison made the transition from a one- to a two-day schedule, where more skills and aptitudes are evaluated. On day one there was the addition of a Mulligatawny soup to be made, as well as a chicken stock, both of which involved dissecting a whole chicken into usable parts. On day two Madison prepared and presented a stuffed chicken supreme with a sauce (chicken veloute) and a broccoli and carrot garnish, as well as a Spanish rice pilaf. Madison also made a baked apple tatin for a dessert course, something that requires the use of puff pastry and a cream addition, as well as a fresh fruit garnish. All of the students at this event were gold or silver medalists from the many disciplines that are represented in their various regions so the competition was hot. The Skills Alberta competition was open to public viewing, and participation at the try a trade booths, where journeymen from various trades and technologies encouraged visitors to practice a skill. Everyone was encouraged to step out and have some fun while learning. There were many educational disciplines involved in the provincial event and our division had students in cooking, building construction, cabinet making, hair styling and automotives. Wanita Voytechek, a post secondary student from our area who was part of Mr. Stinson’s culinary art team in the past, competed

in pastry and produced some startling sweets and dessert type items in an attempt to represent our province at the national event as she did in 2013. Wanita, a past employee of Camrose Safeway bakery, has just completed a year in the pastry arts at SAIT. Other skills involved included numerous computer technologies, as well as television and audio and film skills. There were pipe trades, mill workers, safety competitions, robotics, cosmetology, fashion and design, masonry, landscape gardening, welding, auto body repair, public speaking, resume writing, and job skill demonstration. The national event includes more skills in which Alberta currently doesn’t engage. The international event has more skills and trades again which makes this our premiere skills event that is held every two years in a different country. The next international event will be held in São Paulo, Brazil, in 2015. It was last held in Canada in Calgary in 2009. Madison prepared for the regional and provincial competitions by practicing with her coach, Chef Stinson. She also received encouragement from Chef Jesse Chambers and his staff at her work placement at Stockman’s Chop House in Camrose. She was showing a lot of confidence going into this tough provincials, which she was hoping to use as a stepping stone to further her ambition and career as she prepares to take the culinary art course at the Southern Institute of Technology in Calgary this coming September. Albertans were encouraged to come and view the many trades and technologies at the two days of competition. Chef Stinson introduced an inaugural Grade 9 cooking competition to the Skills Alberta competition this year. Grade 9 students

from the Edmonton area had to produce a burger to set standards which was judged by professional chefs Jesse Chambers from Stockman’s Chop house, Joe Dereniuk from Sunrise Village in Camrose and Tyler Ivey from Sunrise Village in Drayton Valley. Sunrise Village was the main sponsor for the inaugural Grade 9 competition. This cooking competition was a good way to introduce the younger students to the excitement that being involved in Skills Alberta had to offer. Mr. Stinson has taught cooking over the last 40 years to commis chefs in the workforce and students from Grades 6 to 12, including mature apprenticeship students at the college level. He has also been on the technical committee for Skills Canada at the local, provincial and national level for 20 years and has been a workshop assistant in culinary art at two international skills events. He feels the recent proposals by the Minister of Education to enable journeymen to more readily receive teaching credentials, is good news for students eager to learn skilled trades, as thousands of students are involved in Skills Alberta and Skills Canada for this very reason. He believes it would be highly beneficial for young people to have access to more skilled tradesmen right in the various Alberta schools where some resources and infrastructure are underutilized. Cooking and other skills, trades and technologies present students with productive challenges which create successful employment for our youth and a better GDP for our province. The trades and technologies look for daily and lifelong success stories and there is no shortage of them in our school division and its connection with the Skills Canada program.

2014 Grand Caravan Minivan with the driving dynamics of a sedan

John Wigston By Dan Jensen

The 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan at Camrose Chrysler is a minivan with the driving dynamics of a performance sedan – and a little bit of attitude. “Versatility doesn’t mean that the experience has to be boring,” said Camrose Chrysler sales manager Noel Skoglund. Aggressive feel Grand Caravan’s design is intended to convey the dynamic driving nature of the vehicle. A front fascia that sports the Dodge signature “split-crosshair” grille and quad headlamps combine for an aggressive feel. A sculpted rear fascia and rear “ring of fire” LED taillamps completes the look from the front to the back. Grand Caravan’s segment-exclusive Stow ‘n Place roof rack system provides the convenience of crossbars without compromising aerodynamics, since they attach to the side rails when not in use. Both the power liftgate and the power sliding doors feature obstacle detection, which reverses the door’s direction if an object is sensed in its path. Grand Caravan also boasts more Quiet Steel technology than any other minivan. This leadingedge noise- and vibration-

reducing steel, along with other design cues, works to ensure a quiet cabin. Performance From the state-of-the art high-pressure die-cast aluminum block, VVT, sequential multiport fuel injection and high-flow intake and exhaust ports, the 3.6 litre Pentastar engine applies some of the most advanced automotive engine technologies. The result is an exceptional blend of high torque, fuelefficiency, low emissions, and quiet ride. The only thing better than numbers like 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque is the engine’s durability enhancing features, like an advanced oil filter system that helps eliminate oil spills and contributes to more environmentallyfriendly disposal with its incinderable filter element. The engine delivers highway mileage of 7.9 litres per 100 km and 12.2 litres per 100 km city, and a segmentexclusive fuel economizer feature that alters shift patterns to help improve real-world fuel efficiency. It’s also Flex Fuel capable, offering the choice of using either gasoline or ethanol (E85) fuel, or any combination of the two. Nobody does it better The comfort, luxury

and superior craftsmanship of the Grand Caravan is a guaranteed double take. Well-appointed interior design details include soft-touch surfaces, chrome accents and must have features intuitively placed for ease of driver and passenger use. The integrated instrument panel offers a unified look with touches of chrome around the climate controls, shifter and gauge cluster rings. The LED-illuminated gauges are positioned for easy viewing and the steering wheel houses cruise and audio controls. An available class-exclusive Super Console features generous storage accessible by both first- and second-row passengers, and a top tray cargo space that can be covered with a sliding door to keep travel items out of sight. The console’s four cup holders include two that can hold 355-mL cans and two that can accommodate up to one litre bottles. The available tri-zone automatic temperature control system keeps everyone comfortable via its electronic thermostats, and the push of a button activates the available class-exclusive full-circumfrence heated steering wheel, keeping the driver’s hands warm. Grand Caravan’s interi-

or was intuitively designed to flip, fold and tumble with your needs. With the ability to carry up to seven people, an amazing amount of cargo or any combination in between with 81 possible seating configurations, neither your crew nor your cargo will feel the squeeze. Bringing home purchases from home improvement or big box stores isn’t a problem either. Simply stow second- and third-row seats into the floor with the available Super Stow ‘n Go to reveal a flat floor with 4,072 litres of cargo space without ever having to remove a seat. Even everyday errands are made easier with Grand Caravan. The 225-mm deep infloor storage bins behind the third row allows you to load and unload groceries with ease, without worrying about produce running out and under the seats. Let me entertain you The available segmentexclusive second- and thirdrow independent DVD entertainment system features nine-inch screens, two sets of wireless headphones, a remote, and input jacks to accommodate gaming and video possibilities during long trips to virtually eliminate the “are we there yet?” questions from the passengers. Best of all,

the screens can work independently, with one showing a movie while the other is used for video games. The video system can be operated from either the rear seat entertainment unit or the radio head unit. Whether your passengers are watching a DVD or listening to your favourite music, everyone will appreciate the available ninespeaker Infinity sound system with an 11-channel amplifier that serves 506 watts of power. An eightinch, two-channel, dualvoice coil subwoofer means superb quality surround sound for everyone. Safety In adverse weather conditions, the standard Electronic Stability Control with Electronic Brake Assist works with an advanced allspeed traction control system to help the driver maintain vehicle directional stability and limit oversteering or understeering. Electronic Brake Assist detects conditions when maximum force is needed for optimum stopping power. You can see the 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan at Camrose Chrysler on Highway 13 East.

Winterhawks reach finals with local connections By Murray Green

Mike Johnston came to the Camrose Lutheran College to coach the Vikings when he was 23 years old. Mike studied other coaches and absorbed what ever he could in five years before leaving to further his career. After stops at the university level and in the National Hockey League with the Vancouver Canucks and Los Angles Kings, he joined the Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League. “I don’t find too much of a difference between the levels as far as coaching or preparation,” said Mike, after a game in Edmonton during the Western Hockey League finals. “The way I coach or deal with players is the same. You have a certain style of coaching and a way of communicating with players. I have kept it the same from the Camrose days. As a coach you always push players to get the most out of them. You work with them, develop and teach, so that has been my style.”

Mike Johnston

Despite losing to the national champion Edmonton Oil Kings in seven games, Mike is happy coaching with a franchise that concentrates on competing every year. “We lost some key players, but much like Edmonton we have done a good job developing young guys and giving them an opportunity to play,” explained Mike. “Our young guys are not playing big roles but they are learning to play and know what playoff hockey is all about.”

After sitting out coaching last year, Mike returned this season as both the coach and general manager. “Camrose and LeRoy Johnson gave me my start in coaching. “I’m always indebted to those who give me the opportunity. Certainly the five years I spent in Camrose coaching in the college league, (ACAC) against coaches like Al Ferchuk and Perry Pearn and others around the league, I learned a lot. I started to shape how I was going to be as a coach.” Coach Johnston often went to the University of Alberta games to study Clarke Drake and Billy Moores. “I had a chance to learn from them. I wouldn’t be a coach if I didn’t get that opportunity. I would have been a teacher,” said Mike. His coaching in Camrose also gave him international hockey experience. “It helped me to coach for Team Canada. The trips to Europe as a young coach led me to the Spengler Cup. It led to working with Dave King. Working in Camrose really opened the doors for me,” he said. Johnston was the head coach of three Team Canada gold medal-winning entries at the Spengler Cup, won four medals, including two gold, as assistant coach with Canada at the IIHF world championships and two more as an assistant at the World Junior Hockey Tournament. He was also an assistant for Team Canada at the Nagano 1998 Olympics. Portland wasn’t expected to reach the final for the fourth straight year, especially after losing 12 players, including Seth Jones and Ty Rattie. “Early in the year we had some holes to fill. We had a real transition in defence and in goal. It’s a tough league when you have young defencemen and goaltenders,” Mike concluded. Adam de Champlain

Adam de Champlain used his time with the Camrose Kodiaks to launch his junior

career that carried him to the Winterhawks. Adam uses his high energy to motivate his teammates. “You want to get your team going. We are not the skilled guys, so our job is get everyone going hard and the momentum going our way,” said Adam. “We create our own energy.” Adam played 60 games as a rookie with Portland two years ago and scored eight goals and added 10 assists for 18 points. He led the team with 177 penalty minutes. The former Kodiak is enjoying junior hockey. “Both organizations (Camrose and Portland) are great, right from Boris Rybalka and Doug Fleck to Mike Johnston and the coaching staffs,” Adam said. “Here it is another level. In junior-A, the top two lines are really good and it was good to get a taste of it in Camrose.” Adam signed with the Winterhawks on Jan. 26, 2012 after playing the 2011-12 season with Camrose where he had eight goals and six assists for 14 points in 38 games. Although the season ended a win short of going to the Memorial Cup, the former Kodiaks is thinking of playing another year. “As a 20-year-old next year, the pressure will be on me to earn a spot on the team,” he added. “Each year you have struggles and good games and you have to focus on the positives and what we had to do.” Adam turned up his game in Edmonton because of the local support he received from family. “I can’t say enough good things about coaches Boris and Doug, the Camrose organization for the things they have done for me,” he said.

This lack of access to anPRODUCTION appropriate education caused NOTES many francophone families to lose their ties to the French FINALS TO PRODUCTION language and culture. As a result, francophone communities lost the members they needed in order to survive and grow. They also lost their capacity to20serve in their NAA 20A0 CYANthese 100people YELLOW mother tongue, thereby creating a vicious circle of dwindling numbers and decreasing services. This had been going on for Title: PEACE-OF-MIND MAINTENANCE SERVICE Canada, when the a long time, not only in Alberta but across Charter was adopted in 1982. The authors of the Charter knew what was happening and wanted to rectify it. They REGION: understood that language and culture AD NUMBER: of a person’s identity both play a vital role in the development and in the healthCSR_141034_XF_AB_Q2_SERVICE of communities. Their solution was to grant members of the two official-language minoritiesREVsa right that, oncePDF exercised, would reinforce their communities. 0 The authors went DUE DATE: APR 10 1 even further by excluding section 23 from the “notwithstanding” clause, which meant that every provincial and territorial government was obliged to respect andCamrose apply thisBooster federal law. CMB If you’re a rights holder and decide to send your children to a francophone school, you offer them a chance not to only to learn the Alberta curriculum in French, but to immerse themselves in francophone culture as well. If your kids remain in the francophone system, they’ll master French and identify themselves as francophones. This doesn’t mean they won’t see themselves as anglophones too, if their other parent is an anglophone or as members of any other cultural group if you and your spouse have other roots and share them with your children. By enrolling your youngsters in a francophone school, you’re also contributing to the growth of the francophone community locally as well as provincially, nationally and internationally. Section 23 is thus both an individual right and a community asset. For your children, however, it’s much more than that: it’s a key that will open countless doors to personal development, educational opportunities and professional advancement. When you exercise your right to francophone education, you’re really giving your children a gift they’ll benefit from all their lives!

Camrose Children’s Centre needs your vote By Dan Jensen

The Camrose Children’s Centre needs your vote. The centre is one of just over 100 day cares and schools across Canada which have submitted ideas on how to better help children learn, grow and develop to CST Inspired Minds Learning Project contest in hopes of claiming a portion of the more than $100,000 in funding that is up for grabs. Winners will be determined by internet voting as an independent appraisals of the ideas by contest judges. “We entered our idea a couple of days ago and already have 100 votes, which puts us in about sixteenth place” explained Camrose Children’s Centre administrative assistant Jana Rioux. “It (the idea) has to be ranked in the top 25 by June 2 in order to move to the second round of voting.” The Camrose Children’s Centre idea involves the purchase of a portable or a semi-

permanent relaxipod that would be used by the centre’s day care, out-of-school-care, family day home and kindergarten programs to provide a quiet space where the 100 children who are under their care can decompress. “We picked the relaxipod idea because every kid is so busy now with soccer, football, baseball and after school activities that they don’t ever just take a minute to settle down and have some quiet time because they are always on the go,” said Rioux. In describing the relaxipod for the contest, Camrose Children’s Centre notes that children are bombarded with mass stimulation every day, all day. “We are now seeing an insurgence of disorders ranging from sensory processing disorder to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder,” states the centre. “Children need the opportunities and structures to allow that development of their whole self. They

need quiet time. They need to learn the importance of taking that time to recharge, not only their physical batteries but their mental ones as well. Research supports the dangers of multitasking and how it changes our ability to fully attend to any one thing at a time. Our relaxipod would offer our children a safe place to decompress. They would have an environment and the permission to slow down.” Ideas that are submitted to the CST Inspired Minds Learning Project contest will be evaluated by judges according to innovation – a re-imagining of current learning and teaching methods rather than simple reinterpretations, impact – the number of children the idea will affect, and viability. “The ones we have seen so far range from playgrounds to greenhouses,” said Rioux. “The one that is in the lead right now was submitted by a school in Guelph, which wants to integrate

more technology into a science program.” Anyone who is interested in voting for the Camrose Children’s Centre idea is encouraged to simply sign up on the CST Inspired Minds Learning Project by going to sign-in. “People can vote once a day and it just takes a few clicks,” said Rioux. “The staff here at the centre and the members of the board have set up multiple email counts so we can record as many votes as possible and we hope to get more once we get the word out to all the parents. If everyone can just take their work email and then personal email and hammer out as many votes as they can we might be able to have some success.” Camrose Children’s Centre explores as many funding avenues as possible during the course of the year. “The not-for-profit societies like ourselves and even

the funded schools don’t have the kind of money they would like to put all of their ideas into reality,” said Rioux. “We just spent an entire year fundraising for an air conditioning system but that took a lot of time and effort. You’re either doing something for the building or something for the children and the funding is just never really there.” CST Inspired Minds is an initiative designed to help guide Canada’s education and professional pathways into the future. “In our exploration of how our current education and careers landscape evolve, we aim to provide a vision of a Canada of the Future – one in which CST is at the forefront of innovation in the global career marketplace,” stated the CST Inspired Minds. “We aim to inspire enthusiasm and preparation in Canada’s future learners and their parents through a new perspective.”

More women golfers needed By Murray Green Ladies, Wednesday is your night out. The Camrose Golf Course Evening Ladies are looking to boost our membership in 2014. “We need some new members with new ideas. We play Wednesday evenings with tee times for business women starting at 6 p.m., but if you are retired or work part time, book an earlier tee time and play 18 holes,” suggested Joan Conley, Camrose Ladies Golf Club historian. “When we are finished the round, we head upstairs to the restaurant for a drink, something to eat and some ‘girl time’.” For more information, contact Carol Boos by e-mail: or Irene Fryer at irenef1959@


Rotary Club of Camrose Daybreak members gathered on Main Street with Canada Day flags to remind business and home owners to fly flags on holidays, especially on July 1. Rotary members will be setting up about 20 flags in the downtown area. The club is asking for $50 to set up the flags, with the proceeds to help community projects. To receive your flag contact Don Forestier at 780-679-7231.

Trespassers causing a lot of property damage By Murray Green

Trespassing is not only a crime, it has caused a lot of damage to producers in Camrose County. Council is asking rural residents to keep on the watch for trespassers and report them to the authorities. Both the County Protective Services officers and the RCMP members try to monitor trespassers, but it is often hard to contain when people are not caught in the act. “It is a growing concern throughout the County,” said councillor Doug Lyseng. “I hope more people report trespassing and property damage, so we can get a handle on it. When ATV’s burn donuts

in a field it can cause a lot of damage. Often people don’t realize the amount of damage they are causing.” Most people might not think twice about walking across your neighbour’s lawn or taking a shortcut through the school yard, but technically you’ve just trespassed. These more common types of trespassing will not usually result in fines or charges. However, in some cases, a violation of public or private property rights can have serious consequences. Trespassing happens in many ways. This is particularly true in rural areas. Common problems include trespassers using private or unmaintained

roadways to dump waste or conduct illegal activities. ATV riders and snowmobilers trespass on farmers’ fields, which can cause serious damage to crops and, in some cases, cost a lot of money. In cases where winter grain is planted, producers have fields with zero tillage and some early seeding can leave the impression nothing is planted, or can be damaged. Every year producers have this problem on the farm. The ruts left behind prevent zero tillage seeding and require the land to be worked, which is an additional cost. Landowners are

encouraged to post signs and monitor their land. “We are aware of the problem and we have asked our officers to watch for it,” said County administrator Paul King. Soil compaction due to deep rutting impacts plant growth and cuts down the yields. On hillsides, rutting can lead to soil erosion. After the crop is seeded, producers are left helpless to repair the damage left behind by trespassers. ATVs driving through crops close to harvest, cause total damage to the areas. Camrose County is monitoring the serious soil borne disease Clubroot. It can spread quickly when

vehicles or ATV’s go from one field to another. A serious infestation of Clubroot can prevent a farmer from growing canola on that field for three or more years, which becomes a huge economic impact to producers. “People need to respect private property and we need to educate them that they are causing a lot of damage,” said one ratepayer to council. Another landowner was concerned that people don’t realize they can’t operate ATV’s in the county other than in ditches or on their own land. Permission must be granted before riding on private property.

High tuition fees push students to work more

An interactive tuition fee map released by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives provides further evidence that it is dramatically more difficult to get a university education today than it was in 1975. “The cost of getting a university education has increased so much that students must now work three times the number of hours their parents did to pay for a single year of school,” said Jessica McCormick, national chairperson of the Canadian Federation of Students. “With youth un- and underemployment at record levels, youth across Canada are facing a steep uphill battle to get an education and a good job.” In 1975, students only needed to work 200 hours or five weeks of full-time work at minimum wage in order to pay for a year’s tuition fees. This year, a student would have to work 650 hours or 16 weeks of full-time, minimum wage work and still find additional funding to pay for books and living expenses. Some provinces have reversed this trend by freezing or reducing tuition fees. Students in Newfoundland and Labrador have the lowest tuition fees in Canada and, as a result, students there have to work the fewest number of hours to pay tuition fees. “Students in most of the country must now choose to either go deep in debt or not study at all,” added McCormick. “Newfoundland and Labrador is the best example of strong policies and investments that make education more affordable and should serve as a model for other provinces to follow.” The Canadian Federation of Students is Canada’s largest student organization, uniting more that one-half million students in all ten provinces. The Canadian Federation of Students and its predecessor organizations have represented students in Canada since 1927. The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives’ tuition fee map can be found at apps.

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.

“The short time I was in Camrose really helped me get my game back,” said Layne, who often found himself as the seventh defenceman. “I was able to spend time with Boris (coach Rybalka) and gain some of my confidence back. He gave me a lot of ice time that I could take back to Portland.” Layne was one of the Winterhawks that needed to improve when Jones left. “We added Matt Dumba and he was a real help on the back end. After Christmas we were a lot better team and we improved a lot. We also added goalie Corbin Boes to cut our goals against down.” The defenceman liked playing against Edmonton in the playoffs. “It’s like playing home games for me,” said the St. Albert born player. “It’s great to have the crowd cheering for you and giving you support. It is a great feeling and atmosphere.” He also enjoyed that support in Camrose. Layne is the son of former NHL defenceman Emanuel Viveiros, who played 29 games for the Minnesota North Stars from 1985-88 before moving on to a career in Europe.

Camrose City council has accepted an offer from FortisAlberta to purchase the City’s 2,282 street lights (poles and fixtures) for the sum of $3,162,234.30. “The (FortisAlberta offer) was based on a number of factors, including the number and age of the poles, the estimated replacement value, the maximum per fixture investment that the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) will permit, and the residual value of the fixtures after depreciation,” said City manager Damian Herle in a presentation to City council May 20. The City of Camrose is currently billed for its street lighting based on the AUCapproved Rate 33 “No-Investment” rate structure. The Fortis buyout will move all street lights from Rate 33 to the Rate 31 “Investment” structure, under which FortisAlberta is responsible for all costs of pole maintenance and replacement. Under Rate 33, Fortis handles all the work but passes 100 per cent of the cost back to the City. The City’s fixture charge under the Rate 31 “Investment” structure will increase from $0.1741/fixture per day to $0.6254/fixture per day. “Based on the number of street lights for which the City currently maintains an investment, and the number of days in the year, this means that the City would anticipate its annual fixture maintenance charges to increase by approximately $375,000 a year,” said Herle. Over the past number of years, the City has been putting money into reserves to help pay for the costs incurred when Fortis replaces the lighting infrastructure. The 2013 year-end balance in the reserve was $645,000. Herle noted that there are 342 street lights within the City that are older than 45 years, which is Fortis’ typical time frame for consideration of street lighting replacement. “Depending on how many street lights are replaced by Fortis in the next 10 years, this number could be as high as 652 street lights that are older than 45 years by 2014. Based on the current estimated replacement value of $4,500 per assembly (2014 dollars), the value of these 652 street lights is approximately $2.9 million. While it is unlikely that Fortis would replace this many older street lights over the next decade, administration is concerned that a significant street light replacement program by FortisAlberta would result in a significant financial strain to the City.” Council has directed administration to bring back a report regarding the use of the funds from the FortisAlberta buyout plus any accumulated street light replacement reserves.

Online donor registry launched Registering your intent to donate your organs and tissues is easier than ever with the launch of a new online Alberta Organ and Tissue Donation Registry. The registry is the first step in the government’s plan to increase organ and tissue donor rates in Alberta, which have dropped by nearly 40 per cent over the last decade. “One of the greatest gifts we can give each other is donating our organs and tissues,” said Fred Horne, Minister of Health. “With more than 500 Albertans waiting for an organ transplant and many more waiting for tissues, registering your consent to donate on the new donor registry can make a profound difference in someone’s life.” The new online registry is quick and easy to use, and provides Albertans with a record of their consent to donate. Those who register are strongly encouraged to talk with their families about their wishes. Next steps for organ donation in Alberta include making the online donor registry available to registry agents this spring, giving Albertans the opportunity to register their intent when they renew or apply for their driver’s licence or other identification. Work is ongoing to establish a single agency to co-ordinate organ and tissue donations in Alberta. The Alberta Organ and Tissue Donation Agency will co-ordinate and support the work of donation organizations, promote public awareness of organ and tissue donation and work with Alberta Health Services and health professional associations to educate the public and health care professionals about organ and tissue donation. The agency will also manage the registry, encourage its use and monitor and report on Alberta’s performance in organ and tissue donation. These changes follow the proclamation of Bill 207, the Human Tissue and Organ Donation Amendment Act, on November 8, 2013. According to Canadian Institute for Health Information data for 2012, Alberta reported the following active transplant waitlists (active means the person is able to receive a transplant at any time): heart, 23 patients; lung (either a single or double lung), 67 patients; liver, 106 patients; kidney, 309 patients. One organ and tissue donor can save up to eight lives and improve the lives of up to 75 other people.

OSCAR program accepting registrations By Amanda Dyer, on behalf of OSCAR The deadline to register students in the OSCAR program for the fall is quickly approaching. OSCAR is the out of school care program operated through CDSS. The licensed, accredited program, offers after school care for those 4.5 years to 12. Online registration forms will be available beginning May 27 at Registration will be held at the CDSS office May 29 and June 4 from 2 to 7 p.m. The office is located at 4516-54 Street (at the Community Centre). “We had students on a waiting list this year at some of our schools, so it’s very important that parents come in and register so they’re not disappointed in September,” explained program director Kandace Bonney. Registration fee is $50 for a family or $30 per child and due by June 20 to ensure parents have a spot when school resumes in September. Rates for 2014-15 are $6/hour/child, $10/hour/for two children and $15/hour for three children. Snack is included in the hourly rate. This year parents who register on May 29, or June 4 will have a chance to enter to win one of two $25 Superstore gift cards. The OSCAR program is now in its 16th year and operates at Chester Ronning, Sifton, St. Pat’s (students escorted to Sparling) and Jack Stuart Schools. While school may be academic based, OSCAR gives children a chance to just be kids after school. Students are given a snack, and weather permitting, spend time outdoors, and often they have special guest speakers and a variety of activities for all age groups. “Each location has its own programming and the students often help decide on activities and events they’ll participate in that month,” said Kandace. OSCAR does have a parent board and is looking for new members. “We, as a non-profit group, are required to have a parent board and without the board, the program can’t continue. At least two parents from each school are encouraged to participate. There is no fundraising involved. It’s minimal time once a month,” she added. The program, gives parents peace of mind, and children a chance to learn, explore and make new friends. For any additional information, or to become a board member call Kandace Bonney at 780-672-0140.
