HOBO Day

Who Can I Count On? Page 9 Entertainment Page 11 City Page Page 12 Obituaries Pages 18 to 20

It’s 1932. It’s a sweltering hot and dusty day in Camrose. Tired and down on his luck, hobo Norm Prestage, who just “rode the rails” from a province somewhere east of Alberta, is welcomed to this small prairie town. He’s grateful for a bite to eat courtesy of Amielle Christopherson, an employee of the Canadian Northern Railway.

Listen Up! Canada

The Great Depression, a ten-year period from 1929 through 1939, was a period of unsurpassed desperation for Canadians. Jobs were few and far between. Money was scarce. Property values plummeted. Farms and homes, in staggering numbers, were turned over to banks when loans could not be repaid. With little to no money and very little reason to remain optimistic, individuals and, in some cases, whole families, thousands in number, hopped freight trains weekly, in a valiant (but usually vain) attempt to cross the land in search of work. They expected little – just work, any kind of work, to get enough money for very basic food, clothing and shelter. These folk were routinely known as hobos. Camrose Heritage Railway Station and Park will recognize these hard times in an event called Hobo Day on Saturday, July 15th. The goal of the day is a combination of entertainment and education for all age groups. You will learn how frugally these down-on-their-luck people were forced to live; how songs and friendships brightened their lives; and how a unique “code” prevailed in the hobo jungles of Canada; the unwritten, but respected, “law” used when large numbers of destitute and homeless, well-intentioned people congregated in the same location. This is a Canada 150th event not to be missed.

REFLECTIONS by Bonnie Hutchinson Scam alert and police humour

The text message surprised me. It was from the friendly folks at Canada Revenue Agency letting me know that my tax refund was being processed. The text message had a link to find out more and a reference number. It happens that over the past couple of months, I’ve had several conversations with the friendly folks at Canada Revenue Agency. For the record, “friendly folks” is not sarcasm. In each case, the folks at Canada Revenue Agency actually were friendly. They answered the phone quickly (no experiencing high call volumes nonsense) and found the answers to my questions quickly and courteously. One of my questions was related to a tax refund that’s been in the works for a while. Although I had not expected a text message, I had been expecting some kind of communication from Canada Revenue Agency. I re-read the text message and clicked on the link. ***

The link took me to a site with the Canada Revenue Agency logo. It asked for the reference number, my name and some other identifying information that made sense to me. And then came a question that didn’t make sense: “card number” of where to deposit the refund. Card number? Since when does the Canada Revenue Agency need a card number? They can arrange to deposit an amount directly into a bank account. They will mail cheques to a mailing address. Neither one of those requires a card number. The kicker was when the supposed official communication asked for the 3-digit CVV number from the back of the card. They weren’t asking for a debit card number; they wanted a credit card number. That’s when I knew for sure it was a scam. I closed the website and deleted the text message. ***

It occurred to me that right about now, many people may be expecting a refund from Canada Revenue Agency. Like me, they may get sucked into responding to an official looking text message. Thinking that many others besides me were probably targeted, I phoned the friendly folks at Canada Revenue Agency to let them know about the phony text message. I learned that Canada Revenue Agency is aware of the scam. The person I spoke with reinforced that the Canada Revenue Agency communicates via letter or, in some cases, phone, but the tax folks never communicate via text messages. Now you know, too. ***

This isn’t exactly connected, except that it relates to another form of criminal activity–property crime–and an official government body–the police service. Driving down an Edmonton avenue, a friend and I saw this sign. We laughed and drove around the block to see it again. The sign said: Property Crime in Your Area. Batman’s on Vacation. Call Police. ***

Friendly folks at Canada Revenue Agency? Police service using humour? What’s the world coming to? ***

The Camrose Booster thanks you for your interest in the letters page and encourages your comments. Injured patron

I would like to send a big thank you out to the couple who helped me on Thursday afternoon just outside of the farmers’ market. I took quite a fall as I attempted to cross the street on the east side going north on Main Street and I believe I heard her say 49 Avenue. Her husband assisted me to my feet and gave me tissues to help stop the bleeding from my wounds on my face and hands. Her husband went to the pharmacy and bought more tissues and band-aids for my wounds. Before applying the band-aids she escorted me to a public washroom allowing me to clean my wounds and then bandage them. They assisted me back to our original place of meeting and ensured that I was okay and we parted ways (sorry I don’t remember her name). I also met two other women in that short five minutes, who shared my indignity by falling on their knees and suffered lesser injuries, but not less traumatic. The lady did say she intended to report this intersection as dangerous for those of us who walk this delightful Main Street of Camrose. Beth Hoskins, Edmonton Editor’s note: She has been

healing the past two weeks. Beth hurt her ribs and received a cut on her hand. Beth also reports that she has a new pair of glasses. Perceived conflict

Ms. Sitler makes it clear that any “perceived conflict” between the BRSD (Battle River School Division) board and CCA (Cornerstone Christian Academy) is “misconceptions.” Even though BRSD has since passed a motion “to terminate the agreement between BRSD and Corner-

stone Christian Academy Society…” I believe Ms. Sitler when she says there is no conflict between the BRSD board and CCA. The conflict is between the minister of education and CCA. Since I was unfamiliar with the legal niceties of the Education Act, I had to do a little research. As expected, I discovered that local school boards have virtually no control over what is taught (or not taught). School boards are relegated to the nuts and bolts of managing facilities and staff and even here their freedom is limited. Course content is the purview of the minister of education. Minister Eggen is the person to whom we, as stakeholders, must direct our ire. Not that I expect any satisfaction. Minister Eggen is in a majority government that scorns public opinion in its exercise of power. And Minister Eggen is certainly exercising power. He recently issued a ministerial order “telling two defiant Edmonton-area Christian private schools they must allow students to create a gay-straight alliance if they request one.” Coincidentally, this is about the time the “perceived conflict” between BRSD and CCA arose. In the name of tolerance and diversity Minister Eggen is dictating conformity. Funny how that works…tolerance for me but not for thee. So give the teachers and school boards a break, they are trapped in a system that forces them to obey what is imposed from above…whether they like it or not. The good ones do what they can to mitigate the damage. Dave Gosse, Camrose

Amend act

Bill 10: The Act to Amend the Alberta Bill of Rights to Protect Our Children. In each Canadian province citizens live with both a federal constitution and a provincial constitution. The Constitution Act in 1867 was based upon the agreement containing the constitution of the founding provinces. Alberta also entered the federation with its own constitution prior to 1905. The Alberta Act 1905 is unique to Alberta as a member of Canada. This allows Alberta to have

schools which include Christian Bible based education within their curriculum. Elected Alberta governments can only apply to amend the Alberta Act 1905. Cornerstone Christian Academy made their agreement with Battle River School Division in 2009. The school provides a safe environment for 180 students whose parents pay over and above for this safety. The Battle River region had no problem with Cornerstone Academy, then without warning Lauri Skori advised Cornerstone that members of her board and others were offended by fundamental parts of Christian scripture and asked to have it removed from the Cornerstone Christian Academy Handbook. Section 30 (3) of the Public Schools Act requires that every school board hold its meetings openly, therefore the school board is not permitted to meet as a board in private. I ask these questions: Was the decision made in a private committee setting? Was the entire board of trustees involved? If the Cornerstone Academy agreed to remove the verses from the document, why is BRSD invoking the one year clause to enable the dissolution of the agreement? If BRSD does not keep leasing the Cornerstone Christian School, what will happen to the provincial operational grant that is so vital to the taxpaying parents who use the school? Ms. Skori claims that the issue having become public damaged a strong working relationship. She also claims contravention to Bill 10, which came into existence five years later than the 2009 agreement between the academy and BRSD. What was the contravention to Bill 10? We as Christian citizens of Alberta and Canada must stand firm against discrimination and must unite to defend ourselves against amendments to our constitutional rights and freedoms. The BRSD board of trustees said we must remain silent. I strongly disagree. Vern Peterson, Round Hill

BRCF supports Camp HeHoHa The Battle River Community Foundation awarded a grant to Camp HeHoHa. The grant is from income from the Lions Club of Camrose Legacy Fund. The fund was established by the Lions Club of Camrose when the Club was dissolved. The Fund allows four projects supported by the club when it was active to receive support on an ongoing basis. The Battle River Community Foundation exists to support projects, such as this, in East Central Alberta, which benefit the local communities and have a positive impact on the future. Grants from the Battle

River Community Foundation are primarily made possible through the generosity of individual donors and organizations that have created endowment funds. The principal of these endowment funds are kept intact and the income is made available annually to support local projects and organizations. Since it was founded in 1995 the Battle River Community Foundation has granted over $4,865,000 to support programs such as those offered at Camp HeHoHa.

Battle River Community Foundation board member Marshall Wideman watches as Jim Taylor, past president of the Lions Club of Camrose presents a $8,125 cheque to Greg Nielsen, executive director of Camp HeHoHa.

through the pages of The Booster

25 Years Ago This Week – July 14, 1992 • Tom Katz, at the Norsemen Inn was closed from July 20 to 27 for a major renovation. • Russ Nielson, Realtor at Central Agencies Inc., was promoting an 1110 acre grain farm at Daysland for $660,000.

I humbly report a quote from the Holy Bible. This taken from the original King James Bible. 1 Cor 6: 9-11 - “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners shall inherit the Kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.” This statement was made by the apostle Paul two thousand years ago and is recorded in the handbook of Bible believing Christians. The quoted verses assure all people that you personally are forgiven of your sins if you accept Jesus into your heart and confess with your mouth in front of others that Jesus is God and that He died and shed His precious blood on a cruel Roman cross for your salvation. Your report must be that He rose from the dead and is alive forever more. This heart felt confession will welcome the Holy Spirit of God into the core of your being and the Kingdom of God is yours. I remind you, this is the only way into the Kingdom of God. John 14:6 – Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” The offer is made by God to everyone. There is no discrimination. Jesus will meet you wherever you are and no sin is unforgivable. God has given you a free will. The decision is yours and yours alone.

AMAZING JOB

Camrose Wom en’s Shelter ciety So

Camrose Fire Department and Camrose Police Service

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes

®

Step up and be one of the many men who will raise funds for the Camrose Women’s Shelter this year by walking in the BVJ Parade on AUGUST 3RD.

By now, the story is well known. At dawn on the morning of Thursday, July 6th, Zetsen Master Builders lost two homes due to fire in the Creekview Subdivision of Camrose. The lesser-known details speak volumes about the talent and capability of our remarkable first responders. The 9-1-1 call came in at 5:09 a.m. Police were dispatched immediately. Camrose Fire Department was also notified at the identical moment. Six trucks and 30 members were sent to the blazing residential-area fire. By 6:30 a.m., the fire was declared under control. One home was completely lost. The home adjacent, still standing, will have to be demolished due to significant damage. However, the other home next door was not only completely saved, there is zero damage to this home – a home which just became occupied the very weekend before the fire. Upon reflection, the story gets even more remarkable. At 5:00 a.m., no firefighters are on active duty at Camrose Firehall. Every crew member raced to the hall, donned gear and got on the scene in time to minimize the damage and, no doubt, saved considerable other property, even lives. Talk about performance! We are thankful. We are blessed. What a great city in which to live, play and conduct business. Our sincerest of thanks.

This important event is part of the International Men’s March to stop rape, sexual assault and family violence. To participate or learn more, please call 780.679.4975 or email admin@camrosewomenshelter.org

Join us for a BBQ at Vision Credit Union (5007-51 Street) after the parade

Stay safe around local wildlife By Lori Larsen

This time of year can be especially risky for wildlife encounters, as adult wildlife become protective of their newborns. Considering we share our beautiful city with a host of different animals, wildlife encounters may happen. Recently, a pet owner in Camrose experienced an incident involving their dachshund dog (Penne) and a deer. While tethered in the front yard, with her owner just steps away in the garage, Penne encountered a deer, which unfortunately resulted in a severe injury to Penne requiring emergency surgery in Edmonton. Camrose Veterinary Hospital gave Penne her initial care and are happy to announce she is doing fine. That being said, residents need to be aware that such encounters can happen and are advised to take all the necessary precautions for pets, children and adults, to avoid aggressive encounters with wildlife. District fish and wildlife officer of the Fish

and Wildlife Enforcement Branch, Lorne Rinkel advises, “June and early July are the peak fawning periods for deer. All mother deer will aggressively protect their fawns, especially against carnivores, including dogs. Some mothers are more aggressive than others and, even though the public might not see a fawn, it may be nearby prompting protection by the mother.” Rinkel reminds residents that the management of wildlife (deer) and population strategies in Alberta is conducted by Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP), not the Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Branch (FWEB)and that public concerns regarding wildlife populations should be directed to AEP wildlife managers. Like Penne’s owners, Camrosians are very much aware that deer do exist within our city, but are reminded that contacting Fish and Wildlife to deal with resident deer or other wildlife may result in the removal and subsequent death of the animal.

BRSD gives Christian Academy a year’s notice on dissolving school partnership By Murray Green

The Battle River School Board gave the Cornerstone Christian Academy staff and parents notice that the school will operate under the BRSD until the end of June 2018. That notice was issued on June 29. Cornerstone Christian Academy is a kindergarten to Grade 12 Christian School in Kingman that is operated under a partnership to provide students with learning in a Christian environment. As an alternative program within BRSD, Cornerstone offers educational programming for students in K to 12, that utilizes the Alberta Education curriculum, taught from a Christian perspective. All staff are employed by the school division. Earlier this year, the Cornerstone Christian Academy Society, a parent group which owns the school building, manages fundraising and provides guidance on the Christian programming, presented proposed revisions to the school’s vision documents (not a handbook) to a BRSD board committee. The CCA Society objected to the BRSD board’s request that they not add a piece of scripture to their school vision documents that the board considered to be in contravention of provincial legislation. The society council of the school objected to Bible verses to be excluded from teachings that the school board was asking not to be included in teachings because of constitutional rights. Legal advocates for the school said the board wanted to censor what parts of the Bible the Cornerstone Christian Academy can teach to students. Trustees of the school division believe the verses they asked to not be added to the school vision documents contravene Alberta’s human rights legislation. “As a school system, we have an obligation to follow the School Act and human rights legislation,” said Diane Hutchinson, BRSD community relations advisor. “As a public school division, we have that obligation and it is our obligation to ensure that our schools are also compliant.” Several meetings occurred in the spring between the society and the board to iron out revisions. Many were agreed to, but not one that involved the differences between constitutional and human rights. The BRSD board rep-

resentatives felt that piece of scripture did not comply with legislation and asked the society not to add it to their document. Cornerstone Christian Academy Society chair Deanna Margel said the reference is a scriptural footnote in an updated Statement of Faith. “This document isn’t in existence yet. We were still in the discussion change. Then all of sudden we heard the board objected to certain verses being taught. As being faith based, we can’t just teach parts of the Bible. We want to be able to teach the entire Bible. This caught us by surprise.” Margel said although the academy has agreed to drop the controversial verses from the document, the school fears the division now wants to limit what Bible verses the school can teach. “If you are not teaching from the Bible, then you are just like any other school,” said Deanna. “Faith based people love others and don’t hate other people.” The board has never voted on limiting Bible verses. The two votes that were held were related to how to proceed in the educational partnership with Cornerstone on June 15 and 27. “Back in 2015, we signed a master agreement with BRSD. When we re-signed the agreement, for some reason or another, the appendix was misplaced. It was edited quite a bit, but it wasn’t attached to the agreement,” explained Deanna. “We ended up starting again. It was a joint document that we were both working on to append the 2015 agreement. We wanted a footnote added. When we came in for the board meeting, we were then told we couldn’t read verses in school that would single out anybody, could not be used, read or studied in school. This is a whole new conversation.” The society left that meeting feeling they were not allowed to teach anything offensive to others in school. “We were told that was against constitution rights.” Lawyers on both sides could argue the difference between human and constitutional rights for a long time. “I don’t understand why we are so far apart. When we left the June 15 meeting, it seemed positive and we were making progress. “We felt that we had a good working relationship with BRSD in the past,

OUR HANDPRINT

so again, we didn’t expect this move,” added Deanna, who has been on the society board since 2007. The school board decided to give notice that they will only operate the school until next June. The motion on June 29 also stated that the BRSD board wanted to keep talking about how to move forward together. The Cornerstone Christian Academy, formerly a private school, joined the school division in 2009. Kendall Severson was a trustee at that time and he said. “We thought the addition of a Christian program

was allowing us to respect the diversity of our communities and the specific wishes of a group of parents. I believe that BRSD and CCA can work together to reach an agreement that is acceptable to both parties.” Because the master agreement has a 365 day process for ending the partnership, the BRSD board felt the right time to put a motion in place was the end of a school year. But, they also believe there is still time to come to a resolution and find a way to continue the educational partnership.

“I would hope that we can still meet with the BRSD board to continue to talk about this. There is a lot of work to be done. The timing is bad because it’s now summer and people are on holidays. Our intention is to keep talking, but also think of alternative plans,” said Deanna. “I don’t understand why it has come this point.” The Statement of Faith is intended to provide basic information about the school to students and their families on the website.

Jennifer Sarah Ross (Sherjan) June 26, 1987 ~ June 30, 2017 Every so often, the world is blessed with a special person whose joy, laughter and kindness radiates to anyone lucky enough to meet them. Jennifer Sarah Ross was one of those incredible people. After a short but full 30 years, Jen died peacefully, surrounded by the love and touch of her family on June 30, 2017 in Calgary, Alberta. She is remembered by her loving husband David Sherjan; parents Rod and Sheilagh Ross; siblings Mike Ross (Chella), Tim Ross (Laura) and Kate Ross (Jason McAleenan); nieces and nephews Reagan, Addison, Natasha, Will, Joe, Kate, Collin and Thomas. To know Jen was also to know her beloved pets. She was at ease with all animals, but had a particular soft spot for Yorkshire Terriers and horses. Jen’s life was characterized with an appreciation for the little things. She had a magnetic personality. Her stories were always cheerful and high-spirited. To know her was to understand the value of finding heart-shaped stones and smiley faces in the clouds. Her humour and positive energy filled every room she entered. Jen lived her life with a huge heart and non-judgmental compassion; her legacy will live on through others forever. Jen pursued her love of the natural world at St. Francis Xavier University, where she won a full scholarship to study Aquatic Resources. She went on to complete her Masters Degree in Resource and Environmental Management in 2011 at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She was a proponent for early environmental education and getting outside to enjoy the gift of life, working as both a private consultant and in the Alberta foothills at her cherished nature preserve, the Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area. Jen met David Sherjan and was soon won over. They married on December 10, 2015. In recent years, Jen and David became focused on developing their shared business interests, specifically leadership development. Jen and David worked together to help others identify and achieve their own dreams, influencing many people with their determination and enthusiasm. A prayer vigil was held at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, July 7, 2017 at St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church. A celebration of her life was held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 8, 2017 from the Faith and Life Chapel at Augustana University in Camrose, AB with Rev. Craig Wentland officiating. The family requests that colourful summer clothing be worn. Jen was eternally appreciative for everyone at the Stollery Children’s Hospital and the Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area. In lieu of flowers, if family and friends so desire, memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation (1-877-393-1411) or to the Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area. The entire family wishes to express their appreciation to the family who donated a liver to Jen on June 3, 1992. That selfless decision provided the world with the gift of Jen’s second chance at life. There are no words to express our gratitude for these past 25 years. We ask that you take the time to discuss organ donation with your family and sign your donor card. Thank you for sharing your love and light for Jen with us and each other.

Jacqueline Marie McLean (Noonan) d. June 29, 2017 Jacqueline Marie McLean (Noonan), age 64, passed away on June 29, 2017 after a 10-week battle in hospital that, in the end, exhausted her body and spirit. That fight to live was fueled by her brothers, sisters, friends and husband who sat by her side and joked with her, encouraged her and loved her. Jackie began her childhood years as a spirited young girl running around the neighborhoods of Camrose with her siblings and cousins. She was never one to follow the rules; she would often lead a group of neighborhood kids under the fence of the outdoor pool for a swim. When Jackie was four, her father passed away, her mother remarried and the family moved to a farm near Duhamel. Jackie lived a hard life. Life wasn’t always gentle with her, nor was she gentle with it. But, she did have many beautiful moments in life. She took pride in her three children, her lovely grandchildren, her husband Louis and her large vibrant extended family. She had a deep love for books, horses, oil painting and the mountains. The mountains are where she built her life with Louis, her husband of 23 years. She was a cheerful and loyal friend to many. Jackie never spoke badly about anyone, she never complained … she was a free-loving hippie to the core. Jacqueline is survived by her husband Louis; children Janelle (Val), Krista (Brett) and Ryan (Patty); four beautiful grandchildren; three stepchildren Wendy, Shawn and Greg; as well as numerous sisters, brothers, nieces, nephews and cousins. She is predeceased by her mother Suzanne Haggerty (Francoeur) and father Frank Noonan; and her stepbrother Gordon Haggerty. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 13, 2017 at Weber’s Mount Pleasant Chapel, Camrose with Rev. Bill Harder officiating. Cremation has taken place. Memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, Bear Valley Horse Rescue or to the charity of one’s choice. “Hark, now hear the sailors cry Smell the sea and feel the sky Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic” ~Van Morrison

Terrence “Terry” John Gunderson August 13, 1954 ~ July 3, 2017 Terry Gunderson was born on August 13, 1954 to Alvord and Alma Gunderson at St. Mary’s Hospital in Camrose. He grew up on the family farm north of Bawlf, the eldest of five kids. Upon completion of Grade 11 at Bawlf School, he began his farming career by helping run the family farm. Growing up, Terry enjoyed camping and fishing, a passion which he passed onto his children. Terry also possessed an admiration for horses, which led to his involvement with the Daysland Light Horse Association. As a young man, he was also involved with the Bawlf Curling Club where many memories were made with his curling friends. His interest in curling continued throughout his life, however his love of sports did not end there. You could always find him watching a hockey game or a ball game on TV. Until the later years, Terry could always be found at the local coffee shop with the ‘gang’ or out for breakfast with friends on Sunday mornings. In 1982, Terry and Adele were married. They were blessed with two children, Meghan and Darcy. They farmed at Bawlf until 1987 when they moved to their current farm south of Camrose. It is here that they raised their family and continued to farm until 2014. Terry was always one to help out, so he was always acquiring odd jobs in his spare time. Well known for his boisterous voice and bigger-than-life personality, Terry was often mistaken as intimidating, but always had the gentlest soul. He was the first to lend a helping hand and often the last to ask for help. Known for his integrity, he was honest, courageous, determined and stubborn. He will always be remembered as a good friend, a great dad, a wonderful husband and an awesome grandpa. After a courageous battle with cancer, Terry passed away on July 3, 2017 in St. Mary’s Hospital. He is survived by his wife Adele of Camrose; his children Meghan (Rob) Kearns of Camrose and Darcy (Kirsten) Gunderson of Camrose; his grandchildren Corbyn, Adleigh and Alyvia; his father-in-law Robert Woods; his siblings Joanne (Rick) Schultz of Victoria Harbour, ON, Wilf (Marlis) of St. Albert, Garth (Charleen) of Bawlf, and Beth (Ron) Borgel of Strome; one aunt Erna Storvick; one uncle Milton Mosand; and numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. He was predeceased by his parents Alvord and Alma Gunderson; mother-in-law Laura Woods; and nephew Robert Campeau. A Funeral service was held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 8, 2017 from CityLights Church with Bill Harder officiating. If family and friends so desire, memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to the Camrose and District Hospice Society. To send condolences, please visit www.burgarfuneralhome.com.

Bountiful garden of giving Janet Marjorie Furnell October 4, 1917 ~ July 5, 2017 Janet Marjorie Furnell of Camrose, Alberta passed away on Wednesday, July 5, 2017 at the age of 99 years. Janet was born on a farm east of Camrose on October 4, 1917. She was the last of her generation of Blades. She was predeceased by her brothers Chris, Ernest, Ted, Len, Ray, Bernard, Laurie, Norm, Vic, Ron, Les and sister Lily. Janet was a bit of a tomboy growing up with her brothers and many animals, including pet coyotes. When she was eight, her mother died and Janet spent more time with her sister and family (the Elvidges) taking most of her public schooling in Edmonton and Red Deer. In her teens, she returned to the farm and looked after her father while attending Vermilion Agriculture College. She married Don Furnell in 1941 and became an Air Force wife, living in places across Canada and in Germany. When Don retired, they made their home in Red Deer, but continued to travel extensively to such places as Peru, Singapore, Australia, Cypress, Egypt, Europe and throughout Canada. After Don’s passing in 2010, they moved to Camrose. Janet was a very loving and much loved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was a sportswoman, seamstress, gardener and, like many prairie-raised women, she was an extraordinarily good cook. She held many volunteer positions in the Air Force and then in the Anglican Church. Janet is survived by her son John (Sharon) Furnell and daughter Margery (Harry) Gaede; her five grandchildren Erin (Jen), Mathew (Kari), Elisa (Zach), Theresa and Donald (Anna); as well as eight great-grandchildren Kylie, Kelin, Alyssa, Charlie, Henry, Sydney, Maxim and Benoit. To her family, Janet was “The Wings Beneath Our Feet”. Memorial service details will be announced at a later date.

Born and raised in the Camrose area, Nan, who will be turning 88 in August, has dedicated the better part of her life serving the community in a variety of ways. “The only time I can say I have been away from Camrose and area was to go to university in Edmonton,” remarked Nan. Nan completed her teaching degree and started teaching grades one to six in the spring of 1949 at Dinant, then a small coal-mining village approximately eight kilometers north of Camrose. “They were short of teachers so, on Good Friday, I wrote my final exam at the university and on the Monday, I was teaching,” said Nan. “I only taught a little more than three years at Dinant and then I got married and we decided (her and husband Walter) I should stay home. “I didn’t go back to teaching until 1967 at Round Hill School.” Nan had a wonderful 19-year career at Round Hill School, teaching Grade 4 to high school and, despite being retired from teaching for sometime now, is still fondly remembered by past students. “We had a reunion for the years 1970 to 75 this last summer,” smiled Nan, adding that one of the attendees came up and gave her a huge bear hug and asked her if she remembered him. In her recollection of him as a student, he was much smaller and slighter. Nan and Walter, who passed away in 2006, mix farmed just east of Round Hill and always enjoyed the bounty of a garden, and spread the importance of trees and forests throughout Alberta to students as part of the Grade 6 science curriculum. “I had to go out with my dad and brother and plant the garden. I always did like gardening.” After retiring from teaching in 1984, Nan had the opportunity to share her love of gardening and expand her knowledge by joining the Camrose Horticulture Society (CHS). She is now a honourary life member of both the Camrose Society and Alberta Horticulture Association. “I promised myself once I retired I would join the horticulture society.

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster One of Nan Shute’s favourite things is to sit among the flowers to watch, listen and be a part of nature.

I learned about different things because the society is always bringing in guest speakers,” said Nan, adding how wonderful the CHS has been for her. “The horticulture society has been in town a long time and are a very dedicated membership. There is so much to do in Camrose. There is so much to offer here.” Nan was also an accredited horticultural judge with a rose specialty and took great pride in being part of the annual Camrose Horticulture Rose and Lily Show. “I have fond memories of the Rose and Lily Show,” beamed Nan. “I cannot remember a year when we were not totally sure if we would get enough people. But we always seemed to get enough to make a decent show.” In 2008, CHS was approached by Rosehaven Care Centre (The Bethany Group) staff to assist in cleaning up the facility’s courtyard. “It was a horrendous jungle,” recalled Nan. “We looked at it and said of course we would and have been maintaining it every year since.” The work the horticulture society has done in the courtyard is a tribute to their hard work and devotion to making others’ lives more joyous. Continuing a love for gardening and reaping the rewards of taking care of Mother Earth, Nan set up the Junior Gardeners committee. Seeds were donated to youth age six years and older to plant all across Camrose County. Nan recalled the mother of one of the junior ga rdeners approach-

ing her and telling her that her now-g rown children are still active gardeners. “All of a sudden these children realize what they put in the ground is up and growing and they excitedly say ‘look at my garden’.” Outside of the endless hours Nan dedicated to CHS, she was also an active member of her church, a longtime volunteer with Camrose Musical Festival and past president of the Camrose Retired Teachers and Round Hill Seniors’ Club. “We met once a week and we would have floor curling and play cards. And, of course, we always had lunch, you know seniors,” she said with a hint of humour.” Unfortunately due to some recent health concerns and challenges with mobility, Nan has not been able to grow a garden this year nor has she yet to visit Rosehaven courtyard, a favourite pastime of hers. “Last year was the first year in 70 years I did not have a garden. I rarely go out anymore because I have to use a walker and when you go places, you have to be careful and think twice before you do things.” Despite a slowdown in getting around, Nan’s wit and mind are as sharp as tacks and when asked if she misses the busyness, she was pensive in her reply. “I have enjoyed every last minute of doing these things over the years. I think you get past the stage of missing and you just look back at the memories, good or bad.” Who do you know as a community Difference Maker? Let us know.

The automotive section of

Brothers rebuild horse wagons and sleighs By Murray Green

Neil Tollefson’s Tillicum Beach yard is decorated with horse wagons and sleighs. “I worked in Camrose at Rosehaven Care Centre for 34 years and also farmed east of Bashaw as well as having this acreage,” explained Neil. “I’ve always have had horses and pulled wagons. I started saving parts for buggies and wagons, knowing that they will become my retirement projects. I took an early retirement when I was 55, about 19 years ago. I didn’t start building right away. Shortly after I did, I found out you could take a course in wheelwright.” The brothers took the course from Chris Jenson at his Doc’s Buggy Shop near Mirror. He taught them how to build wheels from wood and steel. “I started making wheels and when my brother retired from ranching in northern BC, he took it up as well,” added Neil. “My dad did farm with horses when we were young. When I was six or so, he got his first tractor and then we didn’t use the horses a lot after that. I did a lot of horseback riding when I was older. I ended up getting a sleigh and a couple of saddle horses to pull it for family at Christmas time. From there, it expanded into homemade wagons and buggies.” His wife Peggy has learned to appreciate the lawn ornaments as a reflection of the early history in the area. “The first wagon I built, I made with bicycle wheels. I had a runaway and it was totally destroyed,” Neil laughed. “So then it progressed into better-built wagons.” Neil’s brother Dennis (wife Shirley) built and delivered a wagon with him from BC during his recent visit. “I came to visit and he showed me what he was up to and he got me going on a buggy. I brought a Democrat twoseater. I bought a rubber tire mounting machine, so I have been putting rubber on the wheels of the buggies,” shared Dennis.

OLD-TIME WAGONS

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Dennis, left, and Neil Tollefson found a hobby they both love in rebuilding wagons, buggies and sleighs. The wagons and buggies reflect a time in history when they were the main mode of transportation before automobiles took over.

“A guy in Idaho built this machine, so I got it from him. There are still some people around who can do wheelwright.” One project soon turned into 10 and the front lawn began to get smaller. “We both wanted something to do in retirement. In basic woodworking, you run out of things to make,” said Neil. “We collected axles and hubs, so that dictated what we had to build to restore the wheels,” added Dennis. “Then, we started to build buggies. It keeps us doing things and we don’t worry about punching a clock,” said Neil. “Retirement is no fun unless you have a big black blister on your thumb,” joked Dennis. The lawn attraction has made a few people stop to seek advice or help on their own projects. “Yes, some people come by just to look. Some people call it a museum. I had a job building special wheels for

the Airdrie Fire Department horse cart and some surrounding neighbours have asked me to help with carriages to be built that were wrecked. People want to restore antiques, so I have had a few jobs. I also build ornamental wheels that people often put lights in,” shared Neil. He has also taken a bride to her wedding in a buggy and built a dog sled. “Dennis and I learned together how to bend wood. The sled was built out of oak and then I had to train the lady’s dogs for her,” Neil laughed. “I’ve given wagon rides at the Meeting Creek railway station during their harvest festival in the fall in the past, not every year. I haven’t done it for a while because one of my horses died. I have another one now that Peggy and I use to get the mail,” Neil said. “I used a wagon to go to the neighbours and pick up some beets.” The brothers try to keep the wagons and bug-

gies as original as they can. “Sometimes we have to make the parts because we can’t find them. We have iron in the bush, but there is always something missing,” said Neil. He has a hub-boring

machine to bring the wooden spikes together before mounting the steel band. Neil has a metal tire bender and a lot of special tools to assist him with restoring.

Fire in Creekview destroys two houses under construction to further properties, we were very relieved we were able to contain it and stop it at the first house east of the original fire,” remarked Krich. The home, directly east of the second house effected by fire, was occupied at the time of the fire and the occupants were quickly and safely evacuated by

fire crews, for precautionary purposes. “They were able to go back into their home that same morning and there was no damage to their property. As a result of extensive investigation by fire investigators Kritch said, “The cause of the structure fire last week was determined to be a lightning strike.”

Leanne Taje, Camrose Booster Flames spread quickly on July 6 on a house under construction in Creekview, left, eventually igniting the house directly east of it, which was also under construction. By Lori Larsen

On July 6, shortly after 5 a.m. Camrose Fire Department received a call to a structure fire in the Creekview subdivision, near 52 Street and 36 Avenue. “It was a house fire fully involved upon our arrival,” said Camrose Fire Chief Peter Krich. He reported there were no injuries in the unoccupied buildings, or to members of the fire service. “The fact that both homes impacted by the fire were construction homes, meant nobody was inhab-

iting those homes at this time,” noted Krich. The fire started in a house (under construction) which had an empty lot immediately to the west. However, as a result of the magnitude of the fire and the involvement of the fire prior to the arrival of fire crews, heat and transfer shifted to the house directly to the east (also under construction) eventually causing it to catch on fire as well. “We were able to save that one to the point where it was just upper floor damage (due to fire).

“The initial estimate of property damage is approximately $500,000.” The house where the fire originated (top right photo) completely burned and will be demolished and lot cleaned up. The second house directly east will also be knocked down due to extensive water damage. Thanks to the quick and efficient response of the local firefighters the damage was contained to the unoccupied houses. “Dealing with and responding to a high magnitude fire like that, with the potential of spreading

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster The aftermath of the July 6 Creekview fire left the first house completely destroyed, top photo, and the second severely damaged, bottom photo structure still standing.

Student book bags generate reading excitement By Murray Green

Children need to read to succeed. A comprehensive study of kindergarten children in Alberta shows that 25 per cent of them do not have all of the skills needed to be successful in school. The statistics are very similar for local children in the Camrose area. Camrose Family Literacy, the Early Childhood Development Coalition (ECD) and Vision Credit Union are partnering to provide information and resources for parents of preschool-aged children to improve success. Sturdy book bags are provided through funding from Vision Credit Union and will be filled with hands-on activities and tools intended to help prepare young children for kindergarten. Access to information on all aspects of healthy development will also be provided. The ECD Coalition is a working group of likeminded people concerned

with promoting the healthy development of all children in the Camrose area. The Coalition members partner in events, programs and

activities to help families in every aspect of parenting and child rearing. The provincial department that initiated the

study is no longer in operation, but the local group, along with many other coalitions around the province, are continuing to

work independently to promote healthy development in our area. The bags were packaged on June 19.

Wood speaks about budgeting time for council obligations By Lori Larsen On October 16, residents of Camrose will be going to the polls to check boxes in votes for Mayor and eight city council members, positions within our city that occupy a great deal of commitment and responsibility. Some of the present City councillors answered a few questions about their experiences in an effort to enlighten residents about the duty of sitting on city council. In speaking with Councillor Greg Wood, his responses were as follows. What has your experience on council taught you about Camrose, the community and municipal governance? “Going in, I always knew Camrose was a great city and the last two terms on council have reaffirmed that belief. There is a sense of community here that makes it a good place to live.” Regarding municipal governance Greg said, “What’s on the surface may seem to be simple or there appears to be a simple solution, but there is always more to it than that.” Greg explained, “During this particular term, council spent a lot of time with all City departments during the Municipal Service Review which aided in a better understanding among council members on the logic behind what the City does and why, which was very beneficial. I think we found out that 95 per cent of what was being done made sense.” What has been one of the most rewarding and

one of the most challenging parts of being on council? “In this last term, probably the most rewarding was the fact that we have experienced a kind of a culture shift in how council looks at things and how administration looks at running the City. “We (City) have adopted more of a business model of explaining not only what we are doing, but why we are doing it and does it make sense to do it anymore.” As a business person, Greg appreciates the shift in paradigm. “My pet peeve with all government levels is that they have always been very good at adding, but don’t know how to subtract. For example, there may be services that have been done for 20 years and should be stopped, but they just keep being added and that is why budgets tend to get inflated. “This term, we have seen this culture shift and administration has been taking that business approach and that is rewarding.” Regarding challenges, Greg said, “Balancing the wants and the needs and trying to distinguish between the two is the greatest challenge. There are always lots of good ideas, but not enough money to go around.” Greg added that council needs to flush out a decision-making framework to quantify and leave a trail for the decision and why it was made. “It would help to rank projects a bit better so that 10 years from now, people may not necessarily agree with the decision,

but they will know why it was made.” What do you feel is the most important role of a city councillor? “The biggest one is to listen to everybody’s concerns and, while you may not always agree with some of the concerns, make sure they factor into the decision-making process. “That is the number one job. The next biggest thing is looking beyond the next year or two and the consequences those decisions will have, for instance 10 or 20 years down the road.”

What do you think contributes to a balanced perspective on council? Greg remarked that keeping an open mind on everything and understanding all sides of the issue is vital. “Everybody is ignorant about something and that is not to say you are not capable of understanding, it is just you don’t know half the facts. Be willing to accept that you don’t know everything and listen and learn. Then, make your decision based on facts.” What commitments including time, can a person expect as a city councillor?

“In terms of time, it is all dependant on the background of the individual. My budget (time) has always been three to five hundred hours a year to handle the council meetings and other commitments. Including preparation time, the bi-weekly council meetings account for close to a couple hundred of those hours. “Usually five hours per meeting time then you have committees and, depending on how much time you have available, you might be out in the community more.” Greg suggested that some councillors will spend more time out in the community dependant on the background and other obligations. “But that helps to balance council out a bit, not everyone has the time to be out there.” Greg also noted that depending on a person’s background and knowledge, more time may be needed to familiarize one’s self with the issues and information. What advice would you give to anyone considering running for council? “Take the number one issue you have, set it aside and then decide why else would I run. “If you only have a couple burning issues and that is driving your desire to run, you will find out that you will either get the issue resolved, or it will get shot down pretty quickly. Then what are you going to do for the rest of council term?” With a last bit of advice Greg said, “You have to have enough concern about the general well-being of the community to have the staying power to do it.”

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.

CWSS presents exploring ecotourism By Lori Larsen Imagine navigating down a river and exploring its waters and shorelines for the very first time or trekking on new found land and discovering a variety of bird species and other inhabitants. On July 13, CWSS presents Dr. Glen Hvenegaard who will be sharing information on Frank Farley, one of Alberta’s leading ornithologists and environmentalists in the early 1900s. Farley wrote widely, conducted research and mentored many young people, and was a Camrose advocate. Dr. Glen Hvenegaard, local Camrosian, is a lifelong lover of nature, birds, and getting outdoors, much like the subject of this talk. He received his PhD from the University of Victoria for his research into ecotourism and is currently the professor of environmental science and geography at the University of Alberta, Augustana campus.
