Staff at the Emergency Clothing and Furniture Depot in Camrose have been collecting and storing winter apparel since last spring.

On Wednesday, October 18 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Thursday, October 19 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., in preparation for the cold weather ahead, nearly 4,000 coats, toques, mittens, etc. will be available free of charge or in exchange for a monetary donation of your ability or choosing. This endeavour is called Coats for Camrose. This blitz will be held immediately inside the east entrance of the Duggan Mall in the former Bingo Hall location. Duggan Mall provides this space free of charge. No referral is necessary. No screening will take place. If you need clothing for winter comfort or warmth, this is your opportunity to benefit from the extreme generosity of individuals from Camrose and area. In the days leading up to Coats for Camrose, and while it is taking place, people can continue to donate winter wear which is in immediately usable condition. All items must be clean. Zippers need to work. Highest demand clothing includes young children’s jackets and snowsuits and coats for kids under 16 years of age.

Ursa Major Gold, Silver & Coin

Direct to Smelter – Precious Metals Recycling Roadshow returns to Camrose Ursa Major Gold, Silver & Coin will be back in Camrose on October 18th and 19th. You can bring your gold, silver, coins and Canadian paper money to the Camrose Library between 10am and 5pm each day. No appointment is required. Barry Dick is a precious metals buyer and President of Ursa Major Gold, Silver & Coin. “Ursa Major has the unique advantage of dealing direct with a smelter” said Dick. “That allows us to cut out one or even two middlemen. Ursa Major purchases gold and silver from other gold buyers, pawn shops, dentists, jewellers and jewellery makers as well as the general public.” In terms of the US dollar,

gold and silver prices appear low but the weak Canadian dollar means prices are strong. Ursa Major analyzes your gold, silver, coins and paper money while you watch, with the process explained to you in detail. Coins with numismatic value are graded and set aside from those with a ‘melt’ value. Silver items such as jewellery and flatware are analyzed for hallmark identification. Items thought to contain gold will also be analyzed for hallmarks, and then confirmed using precise testing that is done while you watch. Then a cash offer is made and you decide to sell or not. “If you decide to sell after hearing the quote, great, but it is also about information” says Dick. “A lot of times people just need to know a ballpark of what things are worth; we don’t pressure anyone into selling”. Dick took out his first gold claim when he turned 16 in the 1970’s and has been involved with precious metals ever since. An ardent gold panner, he was a regular at the world championship gold panning competition

with a personal best of 3rd place in 1984. “Nearly half of the world’s annual gold harvest comes from recycled gold. Energy costs are about $500 to mine a new ounce of gold where recycled gold is about $10 per ounce. That prevents a lot of diesel from being burned.” Gold and silver purchased at the show and later melted goes back into the market without incurring that environmental cost. Out of fashion jewelry, single earrings, broken chains, unloved jewelry, charm bracelets, dental gold, nuggets and fine gold are all accepted. “We can assess any coin ever made for collector or precious metal value, including world coins and ancient coins.” People are encouraged to bring in any and all coins for assessment. Ursa Major also assesses and purchases Canadian and Dominion of Canada Paper Money. They have extensive experience working with estates, executors, widows and widowers in a respectful and caring manner. No appointment necessary.

Letters to the Editor

Thin edge of the wedge

I’m writing this after the Saturday evening on which, in our capital city, a man stabbed a police officer and deliberately drove into five pedestrians. The incident happened just a few blocks from where I was that evening. That was the same weekend that in Las Vegas, a man with a machine gun killed dozens and wounded hundreds of other people at a concert. What do we do with this? That someone could be deliberately run over, while walking with friends, or someone could be killed with a machine gun at a Sunday evening concert? What do we do with the grief? The rage? The fear? The insanity? This much I know. We have to gather our courage, face the horror, feel the emotions and not try to distract or shut ourselves down. When emotions have subsided enough so we can function, we have to guard against trying to quickly find someone or something to blame (as if that solves anything), jump to some “quick fix” solution, minimize the magnitude, or sink into despair. (I know because I have done all of these.) ***

It happens that my career has exposed me to learn more about abuse and violence than I ever wanted to know. When I first began to learn more about the dynamics of abuse, I thought it had nothing to do with me personally. But the more I learned, the more I discovered I not only knew more about abuse than I realized, but that I had been subjected to abusive behaviour (not just “the way things are”). It took longer for me to acknowledge that I was capable of and had been abusive towards others. Definitely personal. ***

The ultimate extreme of abuse and violence is murder. But that’s never where it starts. Here are circumstances in which abuse and violence are more likely to occur: 1. Imbalance of power. As humans, we may be “of equal value” but there’s no such thing as equal power. We are parent/child, boss/employee, teacher/student, 300 pounds/100 pounds, expert/ignorant, guard/prisoner. Imbalance of power is a given. That’s not a problem unless it’s combined with… 2. Secrecy–the possibility of concealing action that would be condemned if it were public. 3. Belief in one’s superiority or rightness; a sense of entitlement. When some people believe their culture, race, religion, income, position, expertise, sexual orientation or some other characteristic makes them “better than,” that begins to justify abuse; makes it acceptable to diminish, ridicule, exclude, hate, harm others. Secrecy is no longer required.

Letters are welcomed but please limit them to 400 words or less and sign with first name, initial, surname, address and phone number; only name of writer and city or town will be printed. Letters to third parties are not accepted. The Camrose Booster may edit for clarity, legality, personal abuse, good taste, public interest and availability of space. The Camrose Booster thanks you for your interest in the letters page and encourages your comments. Helping hands

In late July my family was heading to Vegreville to attend my father-in-law’s funeral. Unfortunately, the trailer we were towing hit a bump and the axel fell off the trailer. Our trailer went sideways and abruptly stopped on the Camrose Ring Road. We were all okay including our two young children yet we needed help. We were amazed and thankful at how quickly the people of Camrose stepped up to offer help in any way they could. A citizen named Tracey stopped right away and helped me get my kids out of the car and came up with a plan to keep them safe. Shauna from Prairie Water and Equipment Sales offered us air conditioned shelter in her building. Ben from Ben’s RV helped us get our trailer off the road and to his shop for repair. From Fleetwood Towing and Recovery to the peace officer who helped direct traffic, we thank you. From the men who stopped to help my husband figure out a plan of action to the men who offered to take out our car seats and drive us to Vegreville for the funeral, we thank you.

Although Camrose is growing, the citizens still have that small town mentality of always stepping up and helping out when needed. When we tell friends and family our story we always include how the people of Camrose offered us help so quickly. You live in our hearts. Nolana Wieclaw, Wetaskiwin Good news

After the tragic events of the recent weeks, I felt the need to share a good news story. On Oct. 4, the Camrose Wildcats, a hockey team comprised of nine and 10-year-old females from Camrose and surrounding area, was given the opportunity of a lifetime by Scotiabank. Corey Peake from the Camrose branch informed me our team had been chosen to attend the Edmonton Oilers home opener against Calgary, as Scotiabank is our team’s sponsor. The girls were thrilled to be given a chance to go to Rogers Place, but there were many people behind the scenes that need to be acknowledged that helped make it happen. Both Kyle Morrison and Corey helped us arrange the visit, Corey even stopped off with pizza for the kids to eat on the way while Mr. Morrison from the Scotiabank graciously donated $100 RESP contributions to each player-not just our team but also the Josephburg Flyers, who were also chosen to attend the game. Scott Ritchie from the Oilers Entertainment Group made sure we had a tour of the new arena, gave the kids Oilers hats and even had a film crew cap-

turing some of the magic from the night. Also a big thanks needs to go out to Flagstaff County for allowing us to rent their community bus and Bryan Zimmer for driving. Thank you to the parents for allowing us to share this experience with the players and finally to the coaches and mom Bonnie Tanton for coming along to supervise. We couldn’t imagine a more exciting way to start our new hockey season and seeing the game through young and excited eyes reminds us why we love this game. Thanks again to everyone for making this dream come true for these young athletes. Bob Jonson, head coach, Atom Wildcats Harvest festival

As we all know everyone reads The Camrose Booster. We are grateful for this paper that seeks to always support local businesses and organizations. The Building by Faith–Harvest Festival Team from Resurrection Lutheran Brethren Church has recently benefited from exposure in this widely read publication. We would just like to clarify one point in the article printed in the Oct. 3 edition. The information submitted to The Booster reporter said, “While a significant portion of the $2.2 million budget has been raised, there is still more that is needed.” The printed article leads readers to believe that all of this money has been raised. The reason we are having a Harvest Festival fundraiser is because we have not yet met this target amount. The family friendly event runs this Saturday, Oct. 14 at 5 p.m. Tickets are still available at or 780-672-0909. Iona Brager, Harvest Festival Planning Team


Here in Canada, we tend to be a bit smug when we think of our neighbours to the south. They’re the violent ones; we’re more peaceful. But the seeds of hatred are in our midst too, not just here in Canada but here in East Central Alberta. In politics and religion, in coffee shops and school yards, hateful comments are being flung around and even cheered on with a sense of entitlement. That’s the thin edge of the wedge. When it becomes acceptable to call people names, to be rude, to ridicule, diminish or exclude, that opens the door to further abuse. As we know from the history of the past century, when we dehumanize people, that eventually makes it acceptable to harm and even kill them. ***

We will have peace in our world when we all learn to own our emotions–not think someone else “caused” our anger. When each of us takes responsibility and does not blame others for circumstances we don’t like. When each of us feels responsible for ourselves and for the well-being of those around us–including those we don’t like. I don’t know what to do about mass murderers. But I can do something about my actions and words. At a minimum, I can refuse to contribute to an environment of blame and anger, that pits groups of people against one another and makes it okay to ridicule or harm others. It’s a start. ***

I’d love to hear from you. If you have comments about this column or suggestions for future topics, send an email to I’ll happily reply within one business day.

Fire safety demonstrated on Augustana campus By Lori Larsen

The University of Alberta Augustana Campus hosted presentations and demonstrations on campus safety, Wednesday, Oct. 4. Members of Camrose Fire Department, Camrose Ambulance/EMS Services, Camrose Police Service and University of Alberta Protective Services Augustana provided live demonstrations and presentations in an effort to educate staff and students on the proper procedures to follow in the event of an emergency. At noon the fire department simulated a dorm burn to illustrate to students the speed and power of fire. The demonstration was done on a simulation of a dorm room outside on the north side of the facility. After igniting paper in a waste basket, firefighters stood by keeping an eye on the strength of the fire while a digital clock set up just left of the structure timed the progress. At just over four minutes into the progression of the fire the entire structure was engulfed and firefighter Morgan Caudron and Lieutenant Tyson Sikstrom began extinguishing the blaze. Firefighter Duncan McDougall was manning the fire truck. Camrose Fire Department also gave a demonstration on the proper use of a fire extinguisher. Camrose Ambulance/ EMS Services Primary Care paramedic Laura Rinas demonstrated the use of a defibrillator and offered demonstrations and information on basic first aid including CPR.

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Bittern Lake councillor Chuck Jarvis, Mayor Charles Debnam and councillor Angela Lorente are taking a stand against random dumping within the village.

Bittern Lake upgraded transfer site almost complete By Murray Green

The Village of Bittern Lake upgraded transfer site is almost ready for registered users. An open house for the garbage and recycle area on the northeast end of the village (Railway Avenue) was held at the Community Hall on Sept. 28. Mayor Charlie Debnam, deputy mayor Chuck Jarvis, councillor Angela Lorente and administrative officer Jill Tinson explained the system to the residents before they signed up to receive a fob, which gives them access to the site. “We made some drastic changes to cut down on nonusers dumping items off and people dropping off things they shouldn’t be putting in the site,” said Mayor Debnam. “Each household will be issued a key fob to gain access to the site. The cameras are very good and you will get your picture taken when you enter or approach the site.” Residents learned from village council that a fob system will be in place by the middle of October. Security cameras will be able to view who attends the site and if they are dropping off nonapproved items at the site. “The security system will tell us who is going into the site and who is dropping off things they shouldn’t. In fact, it will even show us who is driving by. It has a good range,” shared Mayor Debnam. “It will give our bylaw some teeth.” This transfer area is for village resident use only. Non-approved items include shingles, metal, cement, stucco or tiles, boards over four feet long, oil, paint or any other toxic wastes, tires or tire rims, large appliances such as fridges or freezers and dead animals. “We take a deposit on the key fob and should you move on, then the deposit is returned to the owner. I encourage everyone to guard the fobs because if they are lost, they will be charged for a new one. Be careful which family members you lend it too because you are responsible for it. The deposit is $20. If you lose it, then the next time the charge is $40 and if it happens again it is $60,” shared Jill. “The increase to use the system will be 30 cents a month more,” she added on the question of if the rates will be going up. Some people outside of the village will have access to the site, but they will be registered and issued a fob as well.

Kodiaks tame Grizzlys in a grudge match By Murray Green

In the battle of the bears, Camrose Kodiaks edged the Olds Grizzlys 5-4 in Alberta Junior Hockey League season action on Oct. 3. Olds scored the line tally in the first frame, but Camrose stormed back with four goals in the second period. Carson Welke, Colson Gengenbach, McKenzie Welke and Jacob Kendall scored single markers for the Kodiaks to take charge of the game. Olds netted a late power play goal to finish the period at 4-2 Camrose. Nic Correale garnered what proved to be the game winner in the third period. Just when Camrose thought the game was over Olds came back with two tallies within 32 seconds late in the game to make it close. Kodiaks goalie Landon Pavilsin stopped 32 of 36 shots directed his way. Camrose also won a close 3-2 contest to the Fort McMurray Oil Barons in a Showcase game on Sept. 30. The Kodiaks scored the first three goals and hung on to earn the two points. Tate Coughlin, Matt Dykstra and Brock Bremer supplied the offence, while Pavilsin stopped 41 of 43 shots to win the game for Camrose. The next home game for the Kodiaks will be on Friday, Oct. 13 against the Calgary Mustangs. Fans are encouraged to bring an item for the FCC Drive Away Hunger event that helps the Camrose Neighbor Aid Center’s food bank. The Kodiaks are at home on Oct. 19 for a game against the Bonnyville Pontiacs and on Saturday, Oct. 21 for a match with Brooks.

Local CPA leading Alberta accountants Wilde & Company/Olson Law congratulate Curtis Palichuk, FCA FCPA, new Chair of CPA Alberta We recently sat down with our business partner, Curtis Palichuk, to talk about his upcoming two-year term as CPA Alberta Chair. He provided some interesting responses to our questions: So how did you get here – Chair of Alberta’s accounting body that leads and supports over 28,500 Alberta CPAs? I was elected to the CPA Governing Board five years ago, first leading the merger of CAs, CMAs and CGAs, and then serving as Vice Chair of the new CPA Alberta board. What does this role look like? What do you have to do as Chair? It sounds like you attend a lot of meetings. Is it fun? I guess it depends on your definition of fun – I love meeting people and envisioning how we can navigate our profession through significant change. CPA Alberta has a very strong management team responsible for the day-to-day operations of the profession and setting future strategic priorities. The Board provides oversight and adds value through our strategic vision including what the CPA of 2020 and beyond is going to look like. Do your clients need to worry that you will not have time for them? Absolutely not! We all have a strong spirit of community volunteerism that is balanced with caring for our clients’ business needs. With technology, I stay connected no matter where I may be working. My partners and Wilde & Co./ Olson Law teams are also fully supportive of my commitment to the profession and step up to backstop any unexpected needs. Speaking of technology, are you concerned that robots will take over accountants’ jobs? Although the future will look much different, I believe that we will continue to add value through helping families with succession, business transformation, tax planning and other professional services that are based on strong client relationships. Areas that can be commoditized may include audit, financial reporting for banks and basic tax filings. These may be handled by bots, artificial intelligence or other technology we cannot yet imagine. How can you help CPAs and business in the face of exponential adoption of new technology and change? Through my role on the CPA Board, I have been very fortunate to keep abreast of disruption including new threats such as cyber hacking, privacy intrusion and business redundancy. However, the opportunities arising from disruption are also enormous. We need to be open to new ways of doing things and support our teams through learning to embrace technology. The strength of professional service relationships will continue to be human understanding and helping people succeed with business and financial matters. One of your strategic mandates is to ‘protect the public’. What does this look like to you? To be a ‘self-regulated profession’, we work hard to help the public understand what to expect from their accountants. Accountability, integrity and expertise are foundational. Clients must feel that they are being cared for, whether it is through timely, accurate tax filings, well-planned business acquisitions or reorganizations

or solid succession plans, we must add value. Protection of the public includes a robust Curtis Palichuk, FCA FCPA student education program that has been nationally developed and regionally delivered. Another mandate of CPA Alberta is to ‘help the membership’ whether working in public practice, industry, government or education. What does this involve? We provide relevant, accessible programs and services such as professional development, technical support and a comprehensive awards and recognition for our members post-designation. ‘CPA Assist’ is an excellent program that supports our members with mental health, including managing depression, addiction and stress. You have just returned from CPA Canada meetings in Quebec. What is your role on a national level? The Chairs from each province get together to discuss matters from a national perspective including CPA education, Canadian accounting and auditing standards, alignment with international standards and leading governance practices. Does CPA Alberta or CPA Canada have a role in influencing tax change? With the public uproar over the July proposals, as a leader, how are you handling this? As a Wilde & Co. partner, the first step is in understanding how these changes could impact our clients and communicating this clearly with them. CPA Alberta is focusing on the processes around tax changes – consultation, listening, timelines – and providing feedback. We are also expressing our concern that although the Federal government has committed to tax simplification, the proposed rules are clearly creating significant complexity. The Department of Finance also committed to a comprehensive review of taxation and we will continue to advocate for this. Final fun facts about Curtis: I grew up farming so am capable of fixing a frozen sewer system, shingling a roof, making a mean bonfire from clearing deadfall and can drive any piece of equipment. I love food and great wines and, therefore, also appreciate the treadmill. My wife Dee and I love living in rural Alberta and we could not have a better place for business than here in Vegreville.

Plan your escape during Fire Prevention Week


By Lori Larsen Do you have a fire escape plan? Would you and/or your family know what to do in the event of an emergency in your home? Camrose Fire Department, in partnership with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), want to ensure residents’ safety by helping them with preparing a workable home escape plan. “A home escape plan includes working smoke alarms on every level of the home, in every bedroom, and near all sleeping areas,” reminds City of Camrose Fire Department life safety educator Jeff Knopf. “It also includes two ways out of every room, usually a door and a window, with a clear path to an outside meeting place (like a tree, light pole, or mail-

box) that’s a safe distance from the home.” During Fire Prevention Week-Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out, Camrose Fire Department will be hosting a series of events to create awareness and build education on the importance of home fire safety. On Oct. 10, firefighters will be taking part in the Neighborhood Smoke Alarm testing sponsored by Camrose Canadian Tire. Oct. 11 from 6:30 to 7 p.m. residents are encouraged to participate in the Camrose Great Escape a city-wide fire drill. Firefighters will be driving throughout the city looking for anyone standing at their meeting place (6:30 p.m.). Prizes will be given to participating families found at their meeting spots.

On Oct. 15 from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m., a pancake breakfast will be held at the fire station located at 5204-50 Avenue. There will be a free raffle draw sponsored by Tofield Packers. As part of continual fire safety education Grade 4 students within the City of Camrose will each receive a free smoke detector to be placed as needed in their home. Partnering on this project is Wild Rose Coop and the Camrose Fire Department Firefighters Association. To assist you in preparing your own home escape plan Camrose Fire Department and the NFPA offer the following recommendations. • Draw a map of your home with all members of your household, marking two exits from each room

and a path to the outside from each exit. • Practice your home fire drill twice a year. Conduct one at night and one during the day with everyone in your home, and practice using different ways out. • Teach children how to escape on their own in case you can’t help them. • Make sure the number of your home is clearly marked and easy for the fire department to find. • Close doors behind

you as you leave—this may slow the spread of smoke, heat and fire. • Once you get outside, stay outside. Never go back inside a burning building.

Port Cities

A port city is a place where cultures and histories collide, where goods and ideas are imported and absorbed into the local bloodstream. The trio of celebrated Nova Scotian songwriters who now call themselves Port Cities honour that tradition. Their chosen name isn’t just indicative of where they’re from (the harbour hamlet of Cape Breton) but what they do: fuse divergent styles and experiences into a singular roots-rock sound.

Menopause is a celebration of sisterhood By Murray Green

If you are searching for a hilarious celebration of women and the change, then Menopause the Musical is a show you won’t want to miss. Shaggypup Productions and manager Mark Zimmerman are bringing this show to Camrose for the first time. “I called about securing the rights to a show called The Joys of Sex. They called me and said Mark, this show is a winner, but the real bread and butter is a show we have a licence for and that is Menopause The Musical. They talked me out of my option. I took the Menopause show to Toronto and it ran from 2006 to 2008, 513 consecutive shows with primarily the same what I call the ‘original cast’ that is going to be in Camrose.” The show is based around four women. Michelle E. White is a professional women, Jayne Lewis is a soap star, Nicole Robert is an earth mother and Janet Martin is an Iowa housewife. “Now I’m excited to bring the show across Canada, so everyone can see and enjoy the show,” said Mark. “I have never been involved in something that has such an impact on women everywhere. It is 90 minutes of fun that leave people with sore jaws and ribs from laughing so much.” You will both laugh out and sing along to this show that is backed by classic hit songs from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s. Menopause The Musical is now in its 14th year of production and is recognized as the longest-running scripted production in Las Vegas. “The show brings couples closer. The men love the music and walk away with a better understand of what women over 40 go though,” said Mark. The entire action of the play takes place in Bloomingdales, New York City. “I call the cast an allstar cast because each of the actresses is a star in her own right. They have been in huge successful productions prior to this show. One was in Momma Mia, one was in Cats, one in Lion King and the other in The Sound of Music. That’s why I call it an all-star cast because they are

some of the top performers in Canada,” he added. The hilarious musical has been seen by over 11 million and entertained audiences across the world in more than 450 United States and Canadian cities and in nearly 300 international cities in 15 countries. “The music will be familiar to everyone, but some of the words are changed to support the menopause theme.” However, it does contain mature subject matter. The show has won 40 Tony Awards. “It is the longest running scripted show in the history of Las Vegas. We play at sold out shows everywhere. The Camrose show will be sold out as well.” Menopause the show will be performed without an intermission.

rehearsing and performing with up to 300 singers from all across Canada, perform in a minimum of three different venues in Ottawa that hold anywhere from 200 to 3,670 audience members,” said local conductor Joy-Anne Murphy. “Given that our usual audience in Camrose is somewhere between 50 and 200 people, this is a very exciting prospect for us.” While in Ottawa, the singers will explore culture, history and music from several perspectives, and return to Camrose with greater knowledge

and experience, much of which will be measured over the span of the rest of their lives. “Singers will return with musical memories and experiences that can impact their perception of what they are capable of achieving as aspiring choristers, soloists or even instrumentalists and, of course, as citizens,” explained Joy-Anne. “The cultural experience of being in our nation’s capital on and around Canada Day is not one that is replicated by anything else. Choir members will


Local choir selected to sing in Ottawa on Canada Day By Murray Green

Members of the Camrose and Area Children’s Choirs are setting their sights on our Nation’s Capital on Canada Day next summer. Children’s Choir members will take part in a choral music festival called Unisong. This festival is designed to bring choirs from all across Canada together on our national holiday to celebrate the musical and cultural heritage of our nation. “The singers will work with an internationally recognized conductor,

be exposed to multi-lingual conversations flowing around them, street performances of all kinds, formal cultural and historic displays at National museums and galleries, and perhaps most importantly, cultural exchange though interactions, rehearsals and performances with singers from across Canada.” A project of this scope requires fundraising in order to provide the option of every choir member being able to afford to come along. “We are turning to the Camrose community for

fundraising. Choir members have already been out and about, and will continue to be in neighbourhoods for events and individual fundraisers. We are also asking local businesses and service organizations to consider helping the choir in any capacity, whether through donations of funds or supporting in other ways,” said Joy-Anne.

Alberta has a brighter future By Bruce Hinkley, Wetaskiwin-Camrose


Best wishes to Nalyn Tindall of Camrose as her sessions on the education minister’s Council on Education have now begun. Some of Canada’s most respected economic experts are forecasting Alberta to lead the country in economic growth for the next two years. Last week RBC pegged GDP growth at 4.2 per cent this year–far higher than Alberta’s average growth rate of 2.6 per cent between 2005 and 2015. Their reports have cited Alberta’s historic infrastructure build, and the increased investor confidence that comes with pipeline approvals, as contributing factors to our economic recovery. Actually, diversification may have been this time around just as significant as we have recovery even though gas prices remain low. Nearly 40,000 jobs were created here over the last 12 months. Alberta also continues to have the highest employment rate in the country and the highest weekly earnings. Alberta consumer spending is up as well. Retail sales in Alberta were at $6.8 billion in May–higher than the pre-recession peak of $6.7 billion seen in October 2014. In 2016, Alberta’s farmers net cash income reached a record of $3.5 billion. Last year private sector investment in Alberta was 250 per cent higher than the Canadian average. And we are on track to lead the country again this year–by a wide margin. In the first four months of 2017: Alberta goods exports are up 43.8 per cent to $34.7 billion, compared with 2016. Alberta has exported more than $50 million worth of goods to 16 countries, up from 12 in 2016. Alberta represents 21 per cent of Canada’s goods export with less than 12 per cent of its population. Alberta goods exports to the US have increased over 48 per cent compared to the same four months in 2016. Statistics Canada’s latest GDP report shows Alberta has already begun bolstering the economic performance of the entire country. That’s why we listened to them and took decisive action when they asked us to: implement tax credits other provinces have enjoyed for decades, restore training programs for new entrepreneurs while adding an array of supports for established ones, help them diversify and expand to new markets, cut the small business tax, and increase their access to capital. If you or someone you know is a small business owner or looking to become one–visit jobsplan.alberta. ca to learn more about available supports. I want all Alberta’s small business owners to know: you can count on us to have your back. Working together we will continue to create new jobs and diversify our economy–an economy for the future. As Alberta’s economy continues to recover our government remains committed to ensuring hardworking Albertans earn enough money to support themselves and their families. We are gradually phasing in minimum wage to allow employers advance to plan for the increases. I am pleased to confirm the following eligible projects. Bittern Lake: three projects–the community hall roof and furniture upgrades, administration building upgrades, and public works equipment replacements. City of Camrose: major road rehabilitation. We will all face choices over the next two years and I will say we do not try to cut our way back to yesterday; we will choose to grow our way through investments to a better tomorrow. We cannot cut our way to better public services; cutting funding to health care, education, capital projects and infrastructure is not helping you or your friends. Opposition proposals to cut investments will make life harder for you and your family; will hurt our economic recovery and do real harm to health care and education. Also, if you pollute you will be penalized with the carbon levy. It is unfair to use the resources owned by all Albertans to contaminate the air, water, and soil. On the other hand the carbon levy generated from resource use should be used to help Albertans. Want to close with a wish that you and your family have a joyous, bountiful Thanksgiving. Take care. For more information check the Alberta Government web pages or call my offices at either 780-672-0000 or 780-352-0241.

Thank you to our local businesses By Kevin Sorenson, MP, Battle River-Crowfoot

Our thoughts and prayers and are with the victims of the recent violent attack in Edmonton. We thank our courageous first responders, especially the officer injured in the attack, and all those involved in stopping the suspect. We stand with the people of Edmonton and the Edmonton City Police. As well, we are all shocked at the massmurder shooting tragedy in Las Vegas. These two events occurring so closely together should serve to reinforce our determination to continue to work to stop these kinds of violent acts. In Parliament, I have been voicing opposition to the tax hikes on small businesses in Canada proposed by the Liberal government. I thank the owners of smalland medium-sized businesses, including their family members and employees for taking action and sharing with me your personal experience and concern over this attack by the cash-starved and indebted Liberal government and multi-millionaires Prime Minister Trudeau and finance minister Bill Morneau. I am pleased to report that I have heard from virtually all sectors of our local economy in Battle RiverCrowfoot. Hopefully, our pressure from enough Canadians will cause the Liberals to drop their draconian tax measures that will only hurt Canada’s economy and our local small businesses. The job of the Official Opposition is to provide critical analysis and recommendations to the government’s implementation of their policy. Numerous times, I have spoken out against the Liberals’ tax policy in the House of Commons in this session. Yet, two speeches I delivered so far support the government’s proposed legislation. Bill C-21 amends Canada’s Customs Act building on work from the previous Conservative government. It acknowledges that abuses occur of the privileges our exporters enjoy and takes measures to beef-up the inspection of exports from our nation. This further strengthens Canada’s credentials as an exporting nation. Bill S-2 is the Liberal government’s re-introduction of motor vehicle safety measures not passed in the previous Parliament. It will provide the transport minister the ability to force automobile manufacturers to issue recall notices, repair new vehicles that have problems, and more. I spoke in support of Bill S-2. I spoke numerous times during the debate on Tuesday, Oct. 3 when we dedicated our Opposition Day to debating the following Motion: “That, given the proposed changes to the taxation of private corporations as outlined in the minister of finance’s paper “Tax Planning Using Private Corporations” will have a drastic negative impact on small and medium sized local businesses, the House call on the government to continue, until Jan. 31, 2018, its consultations on these measures.” The Liberals used their majority to vote down our motion. The Conservative Party will continue to use every Parliamentary procedure and rule to keep political pressure on the Prime Minister and finance minister to back down from their tax proposals. It is important for Canadians to continue to speak out in defense of our small- and medium-sized businesses in every community in our country.

High fashion takes the stage By Lori Larsen

Coming back to his roots, Canadian fashion icon Brian Bailey will be appearing on Oct. 20 at the Celebrating Women 2017 event to be held at the Camrose Regional Exhibition. Born in Galahad, Brian grew up in Camrose and still has strong family ties to the area. “My brother Grant is a farmer in the area and my niece Paige is one of the nurse managers at St. Marys Hospital. I have lots of relatives around there.” Bailey said he feels delighted that Camrose has invited him back to speak at the event, having done fashion shows with the Camrose Kinsmen as a fundraiser in prior years. He noted that Camrose should be proud of the solid foundation it provides for people, like himself, to go out into the world and make a mark and that being able to bring back an element of fame is in part due to growing up in Camrose. “It added to a lot of the reasons why I make some of the decisions I make today. I want to give something back to the people where I came from and I really am thrilled they have asked me to come back.” Unsure exactly how or when his interest in fashion began, Bailey said he remembers his mother (a teacher who has since passed) and father (a farmer who has since passed) were always stylish dressers. “They had great style

even if they didn’t have lot of money or a ton of clothes.” At around the age of 14, Bailey began working for Duff Layton at Duff Layton’s Men’s Wear. “I worked there for about a year then went and worked for Max McLean’s men’s wear store. They had beautiful products. Both Duff and Max had a huge influence on me.” It was an influence that paid off in a big way for Bailey who attended Ryerson University in Toronto, one of Canada’s fashion hubs, and has been in Toronto now for 40 years establishing a name for himself in the industry and with his own successful collection. “I was offered a job right away and stayed at that job for about six or seven years designing with them. They gave me my own label then from there, I opened up my own company in 1991. Being an entrepreneur and doing my own thing was the best thing for me.” Bailey worked with the federal government on various initiatives and eventually, with the help of another person, started Toronto Fashion Week in 1993. “I did lots of work with the federal government and, although the industry may not be that well supported, there are great stories of upstarts and success, a lot because of technology. You just have to keep moving and be aware of what technology is bringing us today.” Bailey sold his line around the world in England,

Braeden was the winner of the annual Back-to-School Safety Quiz sponsored by The Camrose Booster. The contest ran for two weeks and Braeden’s name was drawn out of all the competed entries received. Congratulations, Braeden!

Brian Bailey

Ireland, Norway and other areas, but eventually closed down his wholesale business. “I never regretted shutting down the wholesale. What I used to do is not what I do today (wholesale) however, you can still sell to the world but differently–online in smaller units.” In speaking of the Canadian fashion industry, Bailey noted that Canada is very well respected throughout the world for their quality products. “It’s something we can be proud of and brings me great joy. I am lucky I have had great support from Canada, but it would be good to see more cold hard cash coming from the Canadian consumer to the Canadian designers.” His own designs, The Brian Bailey Collection, is now exclusive to The Shopping Channel. “If you are a good designer, there are different ways to get your designs out there. It really is up to you as an individual.” Bailey is also featured as a mentor to young upand-coming fashion designers on the reality television competition Project Runaway Canada. Bailey is excited to share a positive message with the attendees at the Celebrating Women 2017. “Clothing is empowering when you realize what a costume can do for a person,” he commented adding that a costume is what we wear every day and it defines our day, what we are doing and how people react to us. “If a farmer is dressed up to go to town, it is amazing the immediate respect he/she will get. Right or wrong it is the way of the world. “Our costumes can signify what we do for our day-today life and what we believe in and, for the most part, a costume is there to elevate you and make you feel good and empower you.” Bailey concluded that people need to remember that as they get older, they should continue to stay in tune with dressing sharp in order to feel good about one’s self. It is a powerful message from a homegrown boy who is quite literally “dressing for success.” For more information on the Celebrating Women 2017 event, contact Camrose Regional Exhibition at 780-672-3640.

WHO can

Drive Away Hunger

I count on?

By Murray Green

The Camrose branch of Farm Credit Canada is holding several events during Drive Away Hunger from Oct. 11 to 13. FCC collects food and puts it right back into our community. In Camrose, the FCC Drive Away Hunger campaign team will be driving a tractor and trailer on Oct. 11 to the UFA Supply store at 9:45 a.m. then to St. Patrick School at 10:15 a.m. then to Wildrose Coop at about 11:10 a.m. the French school at 11:45 a.m. then stop at the Jack Stuart School at 2:40 p.m. to pick up food. Then on Oct. 13, at lunch time Janice’s hot dog trailer will be donating $2 from hot dog sales to Drive Away Hunger. She will be set up along Mirror Lake near the Bill Fowler Centre. The FCC trailer heads to the EnCana Arena prior to the Camrose Kodiaks game against the Calgary Mustangs on Friday. Canadian producers take pride in providing safe, high-quality food that feeds the world. With FCC Drive Away Hunger, we can help get that food to the people who need it most. “FCC Drive Away Hunger has achieved so much for so many people since its inception. This inspiring campaign brings together communities to raise food and funds that help thousands of Canadians who are struggling to get enough to eat. Food Banks Canada is grateful for FCC’s continued support in addressing hunger and supporting the food bank network across Canada,” said Katharine Schmidt, executive director, Food Banks Canada. About 860,000 Canadians rely on their local food banks. Sadly, one-third of those in need are children. This drive helps to ease food needs in rural areas and smaller cities such as Camrose. FCC will be collecting both food and cash donations with the cash to be used to purchase items with a short shelf life. FCC Drive Away Hunger is close to the hearts of its customers and employees. It’s how everyone comes together to help Canadian food banks help those who go hungry. Each year, community and agriculture industry partners join our customers to support the drive in a big way.

Taves will join Team Canada at WorldSkills Submitted

When Fountain Tire auto service technician Aaron Taves started fixing cars as a hobby in high school, he hadn’t dreamed he would one day be doing it on a world stage. From Oct. 14 to 19, Taves will join 30 other members of Team Canada in Abu Dhabi for the WorldSkills Competition, an international event where youth from 60 regions compete in 50 disciplines ranging from aircraft maintenance to welding. Taves will vie for the title of world champion in the automobile technology category. To prepare for competition, Taves has been rigorously training. He travels to Edmonton three to four times a week to meet with a dedicated instructor at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) and spends many evenings at the Camrose store where he works, practising on his sample engine. “My Fountain Tire store has been incredibly supportive of my training, providing a flexible schedule, access to the shop and ongoing mentorship,” said Taves. “In turn, my training has improved my work. The more knowledgeable I become on all the systems of a vehicle, the more effectively and efficiently I can problem solve for our customers.” Fountain Tire Camrose store manager Jason Fleck said it is the company’s local owner model that allows him to invest in up-and-coming employees. “We are extremely proud of Aaron’s accomplishments,” said Fleck. “Providing the highest quality of customer service and automotive care is our top priority at Fountain Tire Camrose. Supporting Aaron and other automotive technicians in developing their skills is the key to achieving our goal. ‘Fostering talent within

the company is an important part of Fountain Tire’s philosophy,” added Fleck. “My responsibility to provide coaching and hands-on experience to my local team is supported by a company wide initiative to focus on development.” Taves solidified his position on WorldSkillsTeam Canada following a series of victories last year. He won gold at Alberta’s 2016 Provincial Skills Canada Competition (PSCC) and bronze at the 2016 Skills Canada National Competition, where he was also the highest-ranking age-eligible competitor for international competition. Taves proceeded to the WorldSkills Team Canada Trials in January 2017 where he qualified for the team. “Aaron is an excellent representative of the automobile technology trade,” said Mike Sury, manager of programming and resource relations at Skills Canada Alberta, PSCC host and provincial body of Skills Canada. “The support Fountain Tire is giving Aaron is invaluable to his skill development. We wish him great success in representing his country and his trade on the global stage.” At WorldSkills Abu Dhabi 2017, Taves will compete in eight, two-hour competitions over four days. Challenges will span topics such as electrical systems, brake and stability control, networks and diagnostics.

Belich wants best education in rural areas By Murray Green

Karen Belich is running for Battle River School Board trustee for the Camrose County North because she believes rural students should have a great education. She was raised on a farm north of Camrose and grew up attending Round Hill School from Kindergarten to Grade 9, followed by the Camrose Composite High School. “I believe we have great schools within the entire division. I want them to all work together well. Every school has strengths and I would like to see more sharing of information between them, so all schools benefit from knowing what works the best. It would help all schools to improve and build off of each other’s strengths. We need to share information and resources,” she said. “Some big decisions

and changes are coming up with the curriculum and we have an opportunity to have some input into those changes. It is a great time to have a voice on the school board as staff and parents and to ensure our students succeed.” Belich attained a Bachelor of Arts in Recreation Administration from the University of Alberta and worked as a recreation therapist in Calgary with both youth and seniors for several years after graduating. “In 2006, my husband Mike and I decided to move back to the family farm and raise our children in a rural community. After balancing the working mom schedule for a period of time, I chose to stay home with our children and take on a more active role on our mixed family farm,” explained Belich. “This decision has

allowed me to spend more time with our children, while at the same time allows more freedom to be hands-on with volunteering in the school. I have also enjoyed being an active community member in various volunteer capacities within the Round Hill, Kingman and Camrose communities.” She not only wants to represent the northern part of Camrose County on the

BRSD board, but all of the schools. “I would like to see the BRSD and Cornerstone Christian Academy work things out and I would like to be part of that process, especially since it is in my area. I would like to help by finding solutions because there are good people on both sides,” she said. The Belichs have three children who attend Round Hill School in Grades 3, 6 and 8, allowing Karen to gain a perspective on both elementary and junior high issues. “I appreciate the opportunities and challenges that rural schools face and enjoy working with others to promote and/or find solutions. I have been an active member of the school council for the past nine years and this has created opportunities to have many discussions with parents, community members, teachers, Battle River

administrators and other leaders within the education system. I have a strong understanding of the education system in Alberta. “Should I be elected, I will represent the parents and community members to the best of my ability and will strive to function as a trustworthy and honest liaison between the schools and the school board. My desire is to openly listen to the ideas, concerns and questions you have; and if I do not have the answers, I will seek them and respond in a timely manner. I will keep you updated on what the board is working on and any issues relevant to your school and community as they come up. I believe that we have a responsibility to do our best to ensure that every child is receiving the best education possible.”

Martin has gained invaluable leadership and interpersonal skills through both her teaching career and volunteering activities. It has allowed her to become an effective communicator and to work well in a collaborative environment. Being communityminded is a necessity in the role of trustee. “It helps build trust with the families, students, and other members of the community and ensures that they feel supported. I will represent and reflect the interests of our rural communities while making education a public priority and putting the needs of students first. I am confident in my skill set to govern responsibly and serve my community for the success of all students.” Martin believes in putting the needs of students first, making education a

top public priority, being accountable to my community and establishing increased opportunities for public input, advocating for our rural schools and their unique needs and challenges, promoting educational excellence and continued growth within the division, fostering effective, cohesive and supportive relationships between the public and the division. “My husband and I, along with our three children, have lived in the Hay Lakes area for six years.” She has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Augustana University College and a Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Alberta. “After a fulfilling teaching career of over 10 years, I chose to resign and focus on raising our young family. As a teacher, I taught a variety of elementary grades as well

as at an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. Programs delivered in IB schools focus on the development of the whole student, while meeting student’s academic, social, physical, emotional, and cultural needs with the goal to create critical and compassionate thinkers,” explained Martin. “I loved the daily challenges and rewards of being a teacher. However, I am also very grateful for the opportunity I have had to stay home with our children. Although I treasured this time, I am looking forward to the possible venture of being a public school board trustee and serving our community. The role of trustee seems like a natural fit with my knowledge, skills and experience.”

Martin wants parents to be informed about decisions By Murray Green

Penny Martin wants to represent students, parents and staff in Camrose County north on the Battle River School Division board. “I decided to run for public school trustee because I recognized that our community needed strong and informed representation,” said Martin. “I believe quality education is one of the most essential things we as a community can do to ensure that students have the skills and knowledge to better prepare them for life.” She is a former teacher that understands education and know what it is like on the front lines, work with students to meet their needs on a regular basis and observe the effects of education initiatives. “Alberta’s curriculum is currently being overhauled and we will see changes in Grades K to 12, across six subject areas. With the changes to curriculum, students will face new initiatives and programs in education that will impact and change student learning significantly. The new curriculum will focus on critical thinking skills and evaluation on higher levels, which will change not only what students learn, but also how they learn. Trustees may be involved in providing feedback and giving perspective as to how the new curriculum, programs and initiatives are implemented in schools. I believe that my background in education lends well to providing input on these changes and how they may impact our students, schools and

ultimately the communities. I was teaching the last time curriculum changes were introduced (math and social studies) and experienced the changes and challenges that were faced by teachers, students, parents and school divisions.” Her school involvement gives her instant feedback. “With my own children enrolled within the Battle River School Division, I also understand the parent perspective of the education system, which I feel is also equally as important,” she added.

“I place tremendous value on the rural community in which we live and all it has to offer. I enjoy being an active member of the community through volunteering and participation in local school events and programs, attending parent council meetings, being involved on both playschool and kindergarten parent boards. I also continue to hold the position of secretary on the Hay Lakes Municipal Library board and, along with the other board members, have ensured that the library is run effectively and remains a vibrant hub within the community despite annual funding challenges.”

People gathered at the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre to learn about candidates in the City, County and school board elections. The election is on Oct. 16.

Guest editorial

Votes do matter By Arnold Malone

Again, we have the privilege of going to the polls to elect our government. Most persons, who are over the age of 18, are citizens and are eligible to vote; now is our moment. Some persons are disconnected from the voting process, clinging to the view that their vote has minimal influence or that they have not been engaged enough to know which candidate to choose. Some voters feel a sense of duty. Others sense an opportunity. And, if you are a new citizen who arrived from a totalitarian state, you will know deeply that voting is a wonderful privilege. Television images of those long lines of people trekking for days and nights, barefoot, across a new democracy in Africa, carrying water on their head and a baby in arm demonstrates just how special the privilege to vote can be. These people are desperate to vote, desperate to feel empowered, desperate to take part in choosing how they are governed. The desire to vote is never stronger than when it is not allowed. Here, in Canada, we have felt so comfortable for so long that it is easy to depreciate our privilege. From the beginning, Canada has enjoyed representative government. There is no such thing as a perfect government. The widespread of individual opinions assures that. Yet, democracy asks that we participate, as part of a whole, in selecting those who govern us all. I am aware that democracy works best when citizens are content. When citizens are disturbed, they too often choose someone to punish rather than select whom might best be called upon to lead. Brexit in England or Trump in the USA stand as examples of voters responding to factors other than leadership. In both cases, many asked in the morning after, “Oh my goodness, what have we done!” The slogan, “It’s time for a change” is unworthy. There is no such thing as a time for a change; only compelling reasons. “Does my one vote really matter?” History is full of decisions that were decided by a single vote and there is a never-ending list of decisions decided by a handful of votes. One unfortunate situation when a single vote was critical took place in Canada in 2015. The citizens of Little Bay Island, Newfoundland had lost their ability to make a respected living from the sea because the modern fish plants on the main island had saturated the market. The residents were offered a once-in-a-lifetime option to relocate their community and receive a per capita grant of $270,000 if 90 per cent favoured relocating. The final tally was 89.47 per cent (below .50 we round down). One man later confessed his desire to relocate, but he had not voted. He felt that the numbers wishing to relocate were so overwhelming that his vote wasn’t required. In a casual group, we might say, 89.47 per cent is good enough. Democracy however, operates on the principle that we, “Live by the rule of law and not the whim of man (persons).” So, the law being the law, 500 people continue to merely exist on Little Bay Island. How sad is that? I knew a renowned citizen who always voted and laughingly referred to his vote as, “His bitch license.” Later, when anyone complained about the actions of the government, he softly asked, “Did you vote in the last election?” If the answer was, “no” then he quietly said, “If you didn’t vote you have no license to complain.” As Canadians, it is our right to complain, but we ought earn that right with our vote. So, we citizens should act as citizens and experience the marvel of our privilege. It is time to walk the walk.

You and your family a when the smoke alar Do you know what to do? Consider this scenario: It’s 2 o’clock in the morning. You and your family are fast asleep when you awaken to the smoke alarm sounding and the smell of smoke. What do you do? If you and your family don’t have a plan in place, it could jeopardize your safety, or even prove deadly. In a typical home fire, you may have as little as one to two minutes to escape safely from the time the smoke alarm sounds. That’s why home escape planning is so critical in a fire situation. It ensures that everyone in the household knows how to use that small window of time wisely. “Developing and practicing a home escape plan is like building muscle memory,” said Jeff Knopf, Fire and Life Safety Educator of the City of Camrose Fire Department. “That pre-planning is what everyone will draw upon to snap into action and escape as quickly as possible in the event of a fire.” This year’s Fire Prevention Week theme, “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!” works to better educate the public about the critical importance of developing a home escape plan and practicing it. The City of Camrose Fire Department is working in coordination with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the official sponsor of the Fire Prevention Week for more than 90 years, to reinforce those potentially life-saving messages.

Erickson seeks to finish items he has worked on By Murray Green

Norm Erickson wanted to seek re-election to the Battle River School Board because he has some items to complete. After many years of teaching, he was elected four years ago to the board. “I really enjoyed the first term. It takes a couple of years to really understand everything, so I feel I’m just getting started in accomplishing some things I wanted to. I want to see some of those things I helped with be completed, so I’m ready to serve another term,” said Erickson. “There is going to be a fair amount of turnover of board members, so I want to add my experience to help new board members. I think it is important to have some continuity on the board. There are going to be several issues that are coming up in the next few years that I am familiar with. I headed some of those committees, so I want to finish those items off,” explained Erickson. “The first few years, you lesson and learn. Now I’m comfortable giving my advice and making those tougher decisions based on more experience.” Erickson wants to continue an open communications link with Cornerstone Christian Academy to find ways to work together for the betterment of the students. His experience will be valuable. “I heard the last meeting went well. I hope that continues.” Camrose has two trustee positions on the board. Erickson will be challenged by two newcomers, Natalie Severson and Val Sims. He understands the classrooms are changing. “I believe the presentation of learner outcomes is continually changing. From traditional instruction in classrooms, to media presentation with an interactive instructor, or simply registering for an online course, our students are completing their

education in different ways. We need to continue to find effective ways to make any of those choices a positive and successful experience for our students.” Technology changes fast and the board has to be ready. “In the next four years, I would like to see the students in BRSD benefit from the various ways learning happens. We need technological supports for those students who are choosing this avenue, as well as continued support for the hands on education in our labs and shops in Battle River.” Erickson’s experience as a teacher has been valuable on the board. “I spent 33 years in the classroom, which helps me understand strategies that will be effective for both students and school operations. The last four years as a trustee, I have learned many valued lessons on governance, as well as the direction Battle River is continuing to take. Battle River is a very diverse school region which makes communication and collaboration an important asset.” He is able to represent the entire region, not just Camrose. “I come from rural Alberta. I understand the importance of community and what a school offers that community. I have always believed an education must be complete; it must include knowledge, as well as outcomes, which allow an individual to understand their world and their role in that world.”

Holler inspired to represent the City of Camrose citizens By Lori Larsen

With a desire to service the residents of Camrose, Anthony Holler has put his name in to run for a position of City of Camrose councillor. Holler resides in Camrose with his cohabitate partner. He moved to Camrose 20 years ago from Edmonton to be closer to family. “I have made Camrose my home,” remarked Holler. He attended MacEwan University (Edmonton) studying in the micro computer specialist program. For five years Holler has been working for the Schizophrenia Society of Alberta,

Camrose branch as a peer support coordinator prior to which he spent three terms (of two years each) as a member of the Schizophrenia Society of Alberta board of directors. Holler headed up the Open Minds Walk and Run event in Camrose on Aug. 26, an initiative to raise funds and awareness and honour those affected by schizophrenia, their families, and caregivers. Relatively new to public life Holler decided to run for council to represent the people of Camrose. “Everything belongs to

all the people, for example the new City Hall, not just an exclusive few; and as councillor I would be working for the tax payer, serving the people of Camrose to the best of my ability. “The timing was right for me to seek public office

and I have a little bit of experience in the concept of serving others that I feel will be beneficial to council.” Ensuring representation for all residents is an important platform for Holler. “I have a vision of Camrose being an inclusive city where different people and different backgrounds are included in all the processes.” Fiscal responsibility is another important issue for Holler who admits he didn’t realize how much it cost to run a city until he had an opportunity to see the operating budget. “It would be a different

perspective sitting on council and seeing the inner workings of the City. As a citizen you may not realize what all is involved with running the city.” Holler added, “I would like to see taxes stay low, but because we have so many services the money does have to come from somewhere.” To contact Anthony Holler email campaignoffice@ or telephone 780-608-0278.

Norm Mayer has not seen this message of support. We believe so deeply in Norm as our present mayor, and our future mayor, that we have chosen to share our thoughts publicly. We will be voting for Norm and hope you do, too! David Drever Viola Throndson Retired “I have the utmost respect for Norm as a businessman and a family man, and for his character and ability as mayor of Camrose. His attention to detail is legendary. His commitment to all those who live and work in Camrose is second to none. In my opinion, there is no substitute for Norm in this election.”

Businessman/Land Developer/Family Man “I am a great believer of prudent financial management. I watched with admiration as Norm led the present Council into approving and budgeting for a significantly upgraded and expanded swimming pool – one that will serve the needs of the community, but with a price tag that won’t be a burden for my children or eventual grandchildren. The same can be said for our community bus service. Few people know that Norm Mayer, along with his wife Betty, bought and donated the bus being currently used so taxpayers do not have to shoulder this capital cost. The bus service has caught on and is a blessing for users. Over time, I’m certain Council will expand the service hours and add routes, but I appreciate the baby step approach so that our taxes do not jump excessively.”

Dave Chamberlain Insurance Specialist and 26 years on the Centra Cam Board of Directors “I am very grateful for the support that Camrose City Council continuously provides to our local arts program and especially to Centra Cam’s numerous initiatives and the broad services that it provides to the City. In his time as a councillor and later as mayor of the City, Norm has always been there with advice, support and interest in the success of our organization and the progress of our clients. Centra Cam values and admires Norm’s open door policy in regards to dealing with issues, and this has helped to pave the way for the symbiotic relationship currently enjoyed between the City and Centra Cam. I have great confidence this relationship will continue if Norm Mayer is re-elected as mayor.”

Shirley Rostad Chartered Accountant (retired) “I have known Norm Mayer since I was a child. I grew up knowing his kindness and his seemingly unequaled generosity. I marvel at the never-ending love and support he has for our community. He is a leader and a giver. Few can match his depth of knowledge of the City and his passion for making a difference. His analytical capabilities are truly remarkable. I admire his ability to quickly cut to the chase on any simple or complex issue. Frankly, I cannot imagine Norm not serving us as mayor. He’s my choice.”

Brett Denham Businessman/Family Man “When I think of words to describe Norm Mayer, these come to mind: work ethic, dedication and service beyond self. He is a pleasure to talk to and conduct business with. I treasure his humble nature, his openness and his honesty. Unfortunately, so much that Norm does is not seen or goes unnoticed. But he is a man who expects little fanfare. His dedication to this community is second to none; he has always had the community services best interest in mind while maintaining fiscal responsibility. In my opinion, he’s the ideal mayor and I look forward to seeing him re-elected.”

Dennis Twomey Economic Development Coordinator (retired) “I had the pleasure of working for City of Camrose for 25 years. In those 25 years, not once did I ever encounter a moment of indiscretion or anything but absolute honesty from Norm. I always valued Norm’s calm, quiet demeanor when what happening around him was often anything but calm, appropriate or fair. He’s a visionary. He’s a leader. He’s man of absolute integrity. He’s MY mayor.”

Leon Lohner School Teacher (retired) “Norm puts his heart and his soul into every project and assignment which comes before him. Few can match his resolve or work ethic. On many occasions (most times without an appointment), I have dropped in to seek Norm’s guidance and wisdom. He always patiently listens and, without fail, always offers sound advice. I admire his dedication to the City and the philanthropy of Norm and his family.”

Sara Zylka Camrose Skating Club Executive Organizer, Retail Store Owner “There is probably no busier person in the City, but when I have a problem or a concern, I go straight to Norm. He’s never turned me away and he has always been generous and gracious with his time for me. When I had an issue with pedestrian safety, he listened and got action. When I asked if he might attend our annual weekend Skating Carnival, he not only came and addressed the crowd, he also showed up early and came to the dressing room to shake the hands of all our little skaters. I was amazed and they were so in awe. He’s a great Camrosian.”

Joanne Olsen Recreation Therapist – Rosehaven, Camrose Thrift Shop Board Secretary “Norm is a genuine good guy. Nobody is more community oriented than Norm Mayer. Nobody knows more about Camrose than Norm. Every time I interact with this gentleman, he listens and cares. And then he gets into action. Never has he sluffed off a concern I have voiced. Nor has he passed the buck or delegated my problem to someone else for follow-up. There is no way I could turn down the opportunity to have him as mayor for another four years.”

Bryn Mayer Family Member and Fan

“Papa isn’t happy unless he’s helping other people. Hope you vote for him!”

I have the time, energy, and passion…

It has been a privilege to serve the citizens of Camrose as City Councillor for the past 4 years. Much has been accomplished but the work we began is not yet finished. Additional resources have been allocated for much needed road repairs, we have a “made in Camrose” transit system and we have modernized our budgeting system. Additional large infrastructure projects are on the horizon. One of the biggest challenges faced by the next Council will be attempting to balance the needs and wants of our community with an already heavily taxed population – both residential and commercial. I would be honoured and grateful if I could count on your support again to continue this important work.


believe that it is imperative that the Mayor and Council have fiscal responsibility as one of their primary goals and a continued focus on the “core” needs of Camrose, being roads, water and sewer.

I believe in a council that is visionary with longterm thinking. Good policy takes that long-term vision and creates a road map for accomplishing those goals.

The expansion of affordable housing and public transportation are keys to improving the lives of those who struggle with poverty in our city. I support exploring options and finding partners to enhance these programs.



Camrose is growing, thankfully. I support planning for continued growth while protecting our excellent quality of life. A safe, vibrant, inclusive community doesn’t just happen. It takes good planning.

I support initiatives that would reduce the City’s environmental footprint.

Wood spoke about completing his second term as councillor. “I think we saw some significant and positive changes as to how council and administration approach things and I would like to see that solidified over the next term.” As a big proponent of

general fiscal responsibility Wood said. “There tends to be way more wants than there is money,” said Wood. “Then it becomes a matter of prioritizing and keeping things in perspective of the minimal amount of resources we have as a City.”

Please Vote!

It has been a tremendous honour and privilege to serve on Camrose City Council for four years. In the last term I was exposed to a vast amount of diverse knowledge and experience serving on various committees: • Municipal Planning Advisory Committee (Chair) • Camrose and District Support Services (Chair) • Arts and Culture Council • Camrose and Area Lodge Authority • Camrose Police Commission • Emergency Management Committee • Finance Committee of Council • Municipal Service Level Assessment Committee • Policy Committee • Rose City Handi-Van Society I will use the knowledge gained, plus fiscal responsibility, to continue to guide the City of Camrose towards a bright and exciting future. I am very proud to be a Camrose citizen, with some major projects started and upcoming, it needs to be done right.

LINDSTRAND, Max Throndson is passionate about city By Lori Larsen

Running for City of Camrose councillor, Wayne Throndson expressed his wishes to continue serving the residents. Born and raised in Camrose Throndson has continued the family succession with wife Janice also born and raised in Camrose and the daughter of Lorna and Tony Zimmer. Janice and Wayne have two children, son Greg who graduated from Augustana and daughter Kristina currently attending Augustana. “My roots in Camrose run deep and I am as passionate as ever to see that Camrose remains one of the best places to live and to raise a family. With that in

mind I am committed to city council ensuring that happens.” Throndson indicated the key goals of council are to take steps to ensure they fulfil the mandate to provide good roads, safe and clean drinking water and efficient sewage systems. “In the past four years we have increased our budget for road maintenance and progress

is being made,” added Throndson. “Planning is in the works for upgrades to our septic system and the job of next council will be to see this project through to completion. Once the core infrastructure needs are met then, and only then, can council move on other needs of the City.” Recognizing the tougher economic times Throndson said council must be cognizant of the fact that a number of Camrose citizens and businesses are facing increases to their property taxes that are difficult to bare. “One of our strategies to help attract businesses and new people to Camrose must be that our taxes are competitive with other municipalities.”

Stasko adds business knowledge to council By Lori Larsen

Current City of Camrose councillor PJ Stasko is running for another term as councillor and would like the opportunity to once again serve the residents of Camrose and be able to follow through on initiatives developed during his first term on council. Stasko was raised in Camrose, moving away for a period of time to complete his schooling in business administration and marketing at NAIT and was delighted to be able to move back to Camrose to settle and raise two young daughters with wife Lorri. PJ’s parents, Kathy and Don both grew up in Camrose.

As a local business owner, PJ brings this experience along with the knowledge and skills he has gained through his first term on council and the variety of committees he sits on, to the table. “I am very thankful to be able to serve on so many committees with such a broad based outlook from Camrose and District Support Services to the Camrose Police Commission to the Rose City Handivan Society. “I have learned a vast amount while serving on council, everything from financial to social, and I would like to uti-

Norm O N forMayer X

lize that knowledge and experience going forward.” Having been part of major city projects this term, Stasko says an important part of running again is to ensure follow through on these initiatives. “I would like to see them turn out the way I envisioned them and it is important to maintain the momentum council has presently with some massive revitalization to infrastructure.” Stasko indicated both fiscal and social responsibility are important concerns of his. “So much has been downloaded to the municipalities (from provincial and federal government) that I was unaware of and I think we have a social responsibility to our residents to keep programs available. We do have far more services for a community our size but there is a balance act of limiting tax increases while continuing to deliver the services.” Stasko referred to some of the concerns from residents about the level of taxes in Camrose. “Administration and the past council worked very hard to keep the impact as minimal as possible, but it is a complex dance of needs and wants combined with the reality of the impact the increase would have. Going forward it is definitely a priority of mine to minimize any tax increases.” In conclusion, Stasko commented that communication with citizens is vital, especially with some of the major city projects. “It is becoming more and more key going down the road and should definitely be on the forefront of councillors minds.”

• City debt decreased from $24.7 million to $20.2 million in the first three years of the term, yet service to citizens was not negatively impacted. (2017 numbers will soon be available) • Our Council, almost without exception, was highly cohesive. We got things done! • We developed a solid and harmonious working relationship with City management and administration. What a difference a co-operative spirit makes for all Camrosians. • My vision was to rebuild the streets and avenues of Camrose. The time had come to refocus on City basics. What an amazing difference we are all enjoying and more resurfacing of roads is yet to come. • We addressed the need to replace the time-expired bridge on 48 avenue and while doing so – addressed the future transportation needs of local citizens and visitors. This work is now underway. • We set aside money and created a timeline for replacement for our aged waste water treatment plant. We believe Camrosians deserve maximum quality of water.

Right time: In the past term, we made a host of changes that will allow Council and I to be of the best possible service to the community going forward. As Mayor, I will ensure that Council will stay on the path so effectively set in the term which we have just completed: • We are on pace for continued implementation of all recommendations in our core services review. • We created a Capital Reserve Policy. I am a big believer in not getting carried away with spending money that we do not presently have. I am also cautious about earmarking future Provincial grant money (MSI funds) to present day projects. • City Hall has become a client-focused and more business-friendly destination. This will continue under my leadership. • Our financial reserves are in significantly better shape than in year’s past. In a rising interest rate environment, this is responsible preparation and planning. I believe in “buying what we can afford.” • Over decades, Camrose has become a comparatively expensive place to live. It is my stance that municipal taxes have to be held at the rate of inflation. When Councils get carried away with spending, higher taxation is the result. We’ve all witnessed this first-hand at all levels of politics.

Right person: The prospect of leading Council and working collaboratively with City Management for four more years excites and energizes me. It has always been my goal, personally, corporately and as Mayor to make a difference for all Camrosians. I want Camrose to stay on the course created in this Council term. I also want to lead the way with the following projects in progress: • Our massive streets resurfacing project. • The expansion and major renovation of our swimming pool. • The bridge replacement project on 48th avenue. • The waste water treatment plant upgrade. • Advocating for affordable seniors housing. • Keeping costs of city operations in line. • Ensuring our arts and entertainment facilities are maximizing potential and traffic.

With the right person in place, Camrose will become the best community in western Canada to live, work and play. I am that person. Thank you for your vote on October 16th.

Ofrim wants Camrose to continue to have a high quality of life By Lori Larsen

In his bid for City of Camrose councillor David Ofrim expressed that it has been an honour to have served on City council for the residents of Camrose during this last term. Having lived in Camrose his entire life, Ofrim has developed deep family roots here. “My wife Karen and I have chosen to continue to live and raise our three sons here. We very much value the quality of life Camrose has to offer and are blessed with a variety of arts, culture and recreational activities available to us.” Aside from his commitment to council Ofrim has also enjoyed the opportunity to serve other community organizations and services including coaching a variety of children’s sports, fundraising for the CAFCL building, Habitat for Humanity construction manager (first build), Golf Club board vice-president, Augustana Neighbourhood Association board member and vice-chair of the Battle River Community Foundation. On speaking of the duty of council Ofrim said. “There is a lot to learn for anyone wishing to serve as a councillor and consequently I believe there is considerable value in the experience I received this last term. “Each councillor brings with them a certain skill set that has been formed and developed throughout their personal and professional lives and I feel that a councillor needs to utilize these skills to the best of their ability to give proper thought and discourse to the issues of the day.” Ofrim added that it is important when casting a vote, for councillors to understand the issues brought before them by properly preparing, listening to the experts, asking the right questions, and discussing it over with administration and each other. “Council placed a renewed focus on improving core service levels. Major projects have been initiated including a much needed road improvement program over the next ten years.” On suggesting areas of further examination Ofrim said. “One area I would want the City to explore further is the attraction of, information based and high technology business. Opportunities are greater for those municipalities

which develop the required network infrastructure to support such companies.” David added that sitting on council helped him to develop a better understanding of how decisions are well thought out. “It takes strong and efficient management to keep everything running in a reasonably smooth manner. In my time on council, I have come to deeply appreciate the efforts of City administration and staff.

Johnson wants to keep Camrose a great place By Lori Larsen

Newcomer Cathie Johnson joins the race for City of Camrose councillor. Originally Johnson moved to Camrose when she was 16, leaving for a time and then returning in 2002 with husband Neil (plant coordinator for ShopHype) to raise a family. The couple, with daughters Aurora eight years old and Faith 11 years old have called Camrose home since. “Camrose is a great place to raise a family,” remarked Johnson. In 2005 Johnson stepped down from About Time Productions having spent 12 years prior creating and developing programs for the youth of Camrose. “I feel children and youth can be the underdogs.” Along with her passion

for ensuring positive youth programs, Johnson also has an infinity for the arts. She is the vice-president of the Music Festival board, sat on the original fund raising committee of the Bailey Theatre and has volunteered with the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre. What Johnson brings to the council table is the experience she has gained through running a business in Camrose. “I started my business without any knowledge of business, but I learned as I went and through passion and hard work made it what it is today. I would bring this same passion and hard work to this opportunity. Anything I believe in, I go 100 per cent. I will learn everything I need to know about each item that is put in front

of me.” That along with fresh viewpoints and ideas is what Johnson wants to contribute to help Camrose to continue to grow and thrive. “I want to be that new voice for the people of Camrose. I have passion, energy, dedication, and as a stayhome mother, the time to bring to the position if elected. Johnson shared some of

her election platforms including diversity and inclusion. “I am committed to ensuring that our City continues to grow in it’s commitment to the vulnerable and disenfranchised members of our community.” She noted that making information about all the programs accessible is necessary. “I would like to see a way of getting that information out there. A one-stop gap that is accessible to everyone.” Johnson feels is it vital for councillors to listen to the residents. “I want the people’s voices to count. I do not feel the council’s function is to tell you what you need, it is for them to listen and hear what you need and act accordingly.”

Mayer strives to make Camrose the best place to live By Lori Larsen

Candidate Norm Mayer is running for City of Camrose mayor hoping to see the momentum present council has gained remains. Mayer’s long history with Camrose began when he and his family opened Central Agencies in 1963. “We enjoyed the community so we stayed,” said Mayer. “We have been treated well by the community and our philosophy has always been to give back where we can.” Mayer has been giving back to the community in various ways including donations of dollars and time. “I’ve been involved in all type of clubs and organizations, supporting the Lions Club years ago and recently the Rotary Club and I have also been involved in the Chamber on various committees.” In an effort to repay the community and the organizations of the community for supporting the family business, Mayer said he looks to see where there is a need and tries to fill it. In speaking on his decision to first get involved in the politics of the City, Mayer said that years prior a group of concerned Camrose business members, including himself, felt the City was not receptive to business and not putting their best foot forward, so he decided to run for council. “It has become a passion in my world and I try to do what is best for the community. I am not in politics for what politics can do for me. I am in politics for what I can do for the community,” commented Mayer adding, “I don’t look at it as being politics. For me it is just working at running another successful business.” In referring to the present council Mayer said they

work very well together and have achieved many goals from improving infrastructure to the planning and now executing the process of a new swimming pool and moving forward with the bridge and waste water

treatment plant. “This has all been accomplished by being good stewards of the public purse,” he noted. “We are able to fund these projects almost entirely from reserves we have created, without having any affect on the tax dollar.” Fiscal responsibility is of great importance to Mayer,

who said that it is always a challenge to sort out the needs from the wants. “We have to do our best to try to respond to the actual needs of the community in a fiscally responsible manner.” Should Mayer be successful in his campaign for mayor this term, his plans would be to continue progress on the road improvement program and finalize the projects that are on the drawing board. “Over the past term we have developed a culture of service at city hall with an amazing group of administrative people of which I am very proud. “We can never forget who we are working for and must do whatever we can within our limitations to accommodate development in the community.” As well Mayer would like to see the City move forward by encouraging high tech businesses, such as engineering and computer

firms where location doesn’t matter. “We must focus on business that doesn’t require a lot of infrastructure to run.” He added that the management of these businesses or firms need to know what Camrose offers in the way of resources in the community such as recreation, airport, arts and entertainment and that it is imperative that Camrose maintain those vital services and resources. “There is really no reason that anyone has to drive to another community. We have all the facilities right here at home and we continue to bring in all sorts of entertainment and leisure activities. Mayer indicated that the economy is not where people would like to see it at the moment but it is vital to remain consistent in our push to keep Camrose at the forefront and encourage positive development and services wherever possible.


Mayer also said how proud he is of what council and administration have done for transportation in Camrose. “We have been able to provide an outlet for those less fortunate to get out for visits or assist them in getting to work. Transportation and affordable housing are items where other levels of government also need to carry some responsibility and we need to work on that as well.” “In times like this I feel it is important to keep continuity in the operation of our city from both the mayor’s and council’s perspective. “We need to round out the needs of the community and ensure Camrose remains the great community it is with a great quality of life and we want people to think of Camrose as the ideal City in which to raise families and run businesses.”

The automotive section of

Wilkie improvised to build his dream car By Murray Green

Elmer Wilkie built a 1934 Ford three window coupe with whatever means he could. “I bought an outlaw fibreglass body out of the United States. I bought the shell and built the rest from there,” Elmer explained. “I searched for a metal body for five years and I just couldn’t find anything worth fixing up. Some parts are metal, but most of it is fibreglass.” He lived five miles south of Ferintosh for 50 years before turning the farm over to his son. Since he retired from farming, he moved to a mile north of Ferintosh. He is enjoying life and having fun driving his prized vehicle. “I always loved the styling of the 1934 Ford, so that is what I wanted to build. I liked the 1933 and 1934 because they are similar, but the grill is a little different on the 33. The 1934 looks a lot sleeker.” He started the project back in about 1993 and finished it five years later. “The first shows I went to was the SuperRun Classic Car Show in Saskatoon and then the SuperRun in Red Deer. I really enjoy going to shows. You meet a lot of nice people that have the same interests,” said Elmer. “I recall when I was a kid, when we would drive Model A’s that you could buy for $50. I wrecked a few. I had a 1935 Ford that had a totally different style of body than the 34. I never did get the chance to hot rod it. It was stored at my mom and dad’s place, who retired in Mirror,” shared Elmer. “I had it sitting there and children smashed the glass out of it and pretty soon it got to be an eyesore. My mother kept hounding me to get rid of the piece of junk so I sold it for $60 or something like that. I wish I could have it back.” One day he was looking for a truck to purchase and saw an ad in the paper. The truck was

east of Ponoka and we drive into the yard where this truck was by his garage. The garage door was open and I could see a 1935 Ford coupe in it all done up. I got talking to the guy and didn’t end up buying the truck, but that was my old car sitting in the shop. He ended up selling it to someone in the United States.” When he was building his 1934 version, he added the features he wanted. “There isn’t a lot of original parts. It has disc brakes all the way around, a nine inch cord pose-traction rear end in it, a C4 transmission that I had built in Camrose and the motor was built by famous race car engine builder Frank Kirchner out of Ponoka. I have a lot of dollars invested in this car.” His motor is a Ford, but was designed after a Cleveland engine that has more meat in it so you

could bore it out more. It has an eagle and stroker crank and CHI heads that come out of Australia. Frank likes to dyno his engines, so it was tested at 535 horsepower. I wanted something that could go, so I was happy with the way it turned out.” Soon after he completed it, someone offered $60,000 cash for it, but it was too soon to part with his fun dream car. “I couldn’t do it. The car is my special driver. I have a few rock chips on it now, but I built it to be a driver and to enjoy it,” he said. “The paint has stood up pretty good over the years. I went to the first SuperRun and I was lifting my wife’s (Lois) suitcase out (it was pretty heavy with all of her stuff in it) and the wheels caught the edge and took a chip out of the paint. I have since put a power lift in the trunk,

so it opens easily for me now,” said Elmer. “I did pretty much everything myself, except for the upholstery and paint.

Since his car was completed, he built a 1952 Studebaker truck with a big block Chevrolet 496 engine with a little more horsepower than the car.

ever to ensure the passenger safety and proper performance of the vehicle. Auto manufacturers want to ensure that consumers have the option of Certified Collision Repair wherever they live, work, or travel.

“Consumers need the confidence and peace of mind to know their vehicle is repaired by a shop that has what it takes to ensure the vehicle safety. The Auto Shoppe is officially a collision care provider,” said Scott Biggs, CEO of Assured

Auto Shoppe achieves Toyota accreditation By Murray Green

The Auto Shoppe in Camrose is your East

Central Alberta collision repair centre for Toyota products.

They announced a very important relationship in our local collision repair market. The Auto Shoppe has entered into a working relationship with Toyota City in Wetaskiwin and have recently met the stringent requirements to become a Toyota Certified Collision Centre. This relationship is something they have been working on for a long time. In order to work with Toyota you need to work like Toyota in every way. “Our facility, equip-

ment, staff and training have to meet standards that are far above the normal auto body shop,” said Gord Graham, president of The Auto Shoppe. “They (Toyota) look at every aspect of our business from the front curb through to the back door to ensure it is clean, organized and efficient. This is the Toyota way. “We are honored to be sponsored in this effort by Toyota City in Wetaskiwin who will be our parts and service partner.” It is Toyota’s posi-

tion that all Toyotas are to be repaired by accredited repair facilities following Toyota’s Recommended Repair Procedures due to the complex nature of new vehicle construction. The Auto Shoppe is in the top five per cent of collision repair facilities in the country and has earned this position by understanding the future of this industry and moving forward to achieve this goal.

Celebrating the Life of

Larry Ivan Woods Larry was born on August 20, 1942 in Belwood, Ontario. The young family moved west to start farming in the Edberg community when he was two. Larry married his high school sweetheart Marilyn Gustason and started their family with Les, Susan and Brad. Marilyn was diagnosed with cancer and passed away in 1978. Larry was a natural athlete. In his younger days, he enjoyed playing baseball in the summer months and curling in the winter. He later developed a passion for the game of golf, which he continued to enjoy for the remainder of his life. Larry also loved the farm – first at the family farm and later with his father Ivan, custom combining in the USA grain belt and, most recently, employed by the Brockoff family with their grain and gravel operations. The Oil and Gas Industry was also a part of Larry’s life, working initially for Adeco and then later as a tool push for Precision Drilling. It was during these years, he met Laura MacRea and her son Dan Willcock. Larry and Laura married in July 1982 and together they enjoyed many adventures including living for a short period in both Mexico and on the coast of southern BC. They parted company, but remained friends and kept in touch until Larry’s passing. In 2000, Larry met Maureen Vachon. Together, they found companionship and spent the summer months camping at Bashaw Golf and Country Club where they enjoyed golfing and visiting with family and friends. Larry passed away on September 16, 2017. He was precedeased by his wife Marilyn and his parents Marjorie and Ivan Woods. Cherishing his memory are his children Les of Edberg, Sue (Darren) Wiberg of New Norway and Brad (Carol-Ann) of High River; grandchildren Alanna, Erica, Logan, Rachel, Cassie, Marissa and Reese; great-grandchildren Teagan and Tristan; sisters Patricia (Lloyd) Odegard of Camrose, Kaye (Stephen) Innes of Edberg and Colleen (Randy) of Bashaw; and many nieces and nephews.

In loving memory of

Ty Christian Naslund March 31, 1999 ~ October 10, 2014 When the stars shine up in the sky, We miss you. When the sun rises and sets every day, We miss you. When the rain falls and everything looks beautiful, We miss you. Every day, every hour, in every way, in everything we do, We miss you. Forever loved, Mom, Dad, Ryan and Devin

August 25, 1923 ~ October 4, 2017 Oliver, the eldest son of Owen and Josie Batke, passed away peacefully in his sleep on October 4, 2017 at the Louise Jensen Care facility in Camrose after a lengthy illness. He is survived by his daughters Joy Batke and Judy Jackson; two sisters Charlotte Bakke and Vi (Rod) Madison; brother Ken (Eva) Batke; six grandchildren Mike, Marc, Vince and Brad Batke, Sean Jackson and Corey Gerber; nine great-grandchildren; brother-in-law Vern Ross and family; dear friends Nikki and Ted; and many other family and friends. Oliver met his wife Gladys (Ross) and they married in 1923. Gladys died four days short of their seventieth anniversary. My Dad, with his wry humour, might have said to us now, while reading the obits that he did every morning, “It pains me to admit, folks, but I have passed away. Everyone said it would happen, but somehow I thought I’d survive.” Dad, you embraced life and we were all lucky that we got to know you. It is difficult at best to honour my father in words as it is futile, but there are many memories to share. I remember my Dad and Mom were the best dancing couple on the dance floor; everyone would stop to watch them. It must have been all the barn dances they attended. One of my Dad’s favorite sayings was, “It will all work out”, and he was always right – it did. In all the times my Dad and I played checkers, I beat him only once in my entire lifetime only because I figured out his strategy, but then he changed it. Dad was too smart to let me outsmart him. He kept me on my toes. Dad was humble, well respected and a great storyteller. There was never a dull moment with him around. Oliver started out farming on his Dad’s farm in the Albury and Kelsey areas, however, he had to go where the work was and became a resilient Renaissance Man who did many jobs including working as a milkman. With his charming personality, he excelled working as the Store Manager for the Co-op stores in the Peace Country for many years. He enjoyed his family, friends, faith, gardening, nature, his birds, horses, wildlife and getting out to fish. He believed in working hard because if his grandparents and parents worked through the hard times, then anyone could. You couldn’t keep a good man down. Oliver was predeceased by his wife Gladys, his son, infant daughter, two brothers and two sisters. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends. A Funeral Service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 11, 2017 from the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses with Brett Quartly officiating. If family and friends so desire, memorial contributions are greatly accepted in his name to his two favourite charities: St. Mary’s Hospital Palliative Care Unit in Camrose, AB and the Bear Valley Rescue Group (horses) at Box 19, Site 6, RR2, Sundre, AB  T0M 1X0.

My Dear Precious Brother

“Don” Donald Klass DeVries 1953 ~ 2017 My poem to you as I will remember: The gentle breezes flowing through the stalks of prairie grain fields I will remember your gentleness and kindness The whispers of the wind rustling through the leaves in the tree tops I will remember your voice calling out The sounds of children’s laughter from the playground I will remember your mischievous nature – jokes and pranks were many The sounds of running water as it bubbles forth in spring or from a stream I will remember your endless joy for life and the ribbon of miles of train track you would have travelled The birds as they sing sweetly in the trees I will remember your joy of singing The beauty of a spring day as the wild flowers of spring start to open in the snow – crocuses and buffalo beans I will remember the happy carefree childhood days of time shared The sounds and sights of a winter blizzard blowing in a storm I will remember your love and concern for others The sights and sounds of the train, the whistle or noise of train on the track I will remember your dedicated career choice of engineer The carefree days of summer when school was out I will remember berry picking, exploring nature, the trips to the lake, to the drive-in, to Grandma’s house The beauty of an autumn day – the wonderful color of God’s paintbrush on the landscape I will remember your beautiful nature, friendship and free spirit The glow of the sun as it glistens on the snow or on the dew of the grass I will remember your affection smile and the twinkle in your eyes The sounds and sights of parents at work I will remember the wonderful times we shared as a family and the blessing of having two wonderful parents who loved us The beauty of the majestic Canadian Rocky Mountains reaching out to the sky I will remember your love of the Lord and how you loved Sunday school and Sunday worship times The smell of home baked goodies I will remember how you delighted in the taste of homemade bread and syrup, Mom’s delicious apple pie and all the other treats that abound from the kitchen The spirit of strength displayed in character I will remember your brave battle with cancer The sight of an eagle in flight I will remember you are up there with the Lord and flying with the angels My prayers and thoughts are with Brenda, Jeffery (Jill) and family; Jennifer; our mother Lillian; and our brother Eric (Carol); our sisters Debra (Stephen) and Carolyn (Darwin); and all the other family members. This will be a sad time in our hearts as we remember, but knowing “Don” is now in the precious care of the Lord. Lots of love and armfuls of blessings to all, your brother-in-law and sister Ken and Eileen

Recorded Obituary Line: 780-679-2400 Daysland (Bob Hanrahan): 780-374-3535

“I’ll lend you for a little while A child of mine,” God said For you to love the while   she lives And mourn for when she’s dead. It may be six or seven years, Or forty-two or -three. But will you, till I call her back Take care of her for me? She’ll bring her charms   to gladden you And – should her stay be brief – You’ll have her lovely memories As a solace for your grief. I cannot promise she will stay For all from earth returns, But there are lessons taught below I want this child to learn. I’ve looked the whole world over In my search for teachers true. And from all beings that   crowd life’s land I have chosen you. Now, will you give her all   your love? Nor think the labor vain? Nor hate me when I come to take This lent child back again? I fancied that I heard you say “Dear Lord, Thy will be done. For all the joys Thy child   will bring The risk of grief we’ll run. We will shelter her with  tenderness We’ll love her while we may – And for the happiness   we have known Forever grateful stay. But should the angels   come for her Much sooner than we planned, We’ll brave the bitter grief   that comes And try – to understand.”

I’m frequently asked by constituents why the government fails to reply to the emails or letters they send to various ministries and departments. In respect of questions posed regarding both Bill 6, The Enhanced Protection for Farm and Ranch Workers Act and Bill 20, the Climate Leadership Implementation Act (carbon tax) the silence of the response was particularly deafening. Perhaps, considering the group think climate alarmist noises emanating from NDP ranks I could have suggested, facetiously, that the Bermuda Triangle had moved north. I suspected that constituents in Battle River-Wainwright are not singled out to be ignored and, indeed, my MLA colleagues tell me that their constituents air similar complaints. This therefore must amount to a significant number of ignored emails and letters. I often wondered what happens to these items of correspondence. Both the Wildrose and now the UCP, Caucuses has asked these very questions. How could a government whose “top priorities are…restoring honest and open government” Rachel Notley, Election Platform 2015 ( org/files/plateformes/alberta_ndp_platform_2015.pdf) countenance willfully ignoring Albertans and/or refuse to answer legitimate enquiries? Well, as regards the emails, the mystery is now solved; and the answer is potentially worse than I imagined. The UCP originally requested information about government email records in 2016. Shortly after it requested further information and discovered that some 800,000 emails across government departments had been deleted. This is not some IT error or a rogue and disillusioned employee wreaking havoc having been given a pink slip. Rather this appears to be a deliberate policy sanctioned from on high. Of particular interest were the email records of both Premier Notley’s ex-chief of staff, Brian Topp and her deputy chief of staff, Anne McGrath. Topp had only 78 emails in his inbox and just one in his sent folder. McGrath had a mere 18 emails in her inbox and, again, just one sent message. Both Topp’s and McGrath’s deleted items folder were completely empty. Now, this low level of email traffic suggests that either these individuals are employed in jobs, which at best can only be described as sinecures or there has been an inordinate, bordering on OCD, levels of email “housekeeping” going on. In addition to these notable examples is the worrying instruction issued by two ministries, education and transportation, directing staff to get rid of emails in their inboxes. Further, the transportation department set a target for staff to reduce inbox emails by 25 per cent, the ones who deleted the most being entered into a draw for a $50 iTunes gift cards. That’s your tax dollars folks rewarding, well, rewarding I‘m not quite sure what. The premier’s communication director, Cheryl Oates, has stated that “we’re confident that no official records have been intentionally deleted.” That remains to be seen. I guess the questions posed by ordinary Albertans simply don’t make the cut as an “official record”–and are considered appropriate for the electronic trash can. Now, if they make the trash can out of glass, and without a lid, at least the premier can stand by her statement of a government that is “open and transparent.” This is a serious matter, former political staff in Ontario were charged with deleting emails-are the NDP in Alberta copying some of those same tactics? As a consequence the UCP Caucus has asked the privacy commissioner to investigate this matter. I hope they will look into this at the earliest opportunity.

CCHS Trojans shut out Rebels By Murray Green

The Camrose Composite High School Trojans football team blanked the West Central Rebels 18-0 on Sept. 28. The CCHS defence was solid as they held West Central to minus 13 yards rushing and 99 yards passing. They also forced a safety early in the first quarter to start off the scoring. “The leader on defence was Terryl Sherman who had six tackles, an assist, a knockdown, a forced fumble and two big hits,” said coach Adam Belanger. Quarterback sacks were given credit to Dylan Barton, Dorian Gibbs and Jesse Doutre. “The defense was in the backfield all night and the Rebels quarterback was pressured seven times. Offensively, the line stepped up in a big way with 313 yards rushing and two for four passing for 51 yards.” The line was anchored by veteran Trey Gerhardt, and joined by Josh Moores, Kevin Kittler, Evan Kohlman and Jake Rutushnick in opening up big holes for the Trojan run game. Nick Ioanidis had a big night with 171 yards rushing on 24 carries and a touchdown. Dorian Gibbs had 82 yards on 14 carries with a touchdown, and steadily improving rookie Dominick Charpentier contributed with 42 yards on five carries. Quarterback Drew Loosemore escaped pressure and found receiver Kieran Batke who went up an got a contested catch before turning it up-field for a 50 yard gain. Terryl Sherman was good on a convert and a field goal. The Trojans host the Ponoka Broncs on Oct. 20 at 7 p.m. in the next home game. OLMP Royals

In the Alberta Six Man Football League, Our Lady of Mount Pleasant Royals lost 62-14 to Rimbey on Sept. 29. OLMP hosts the Hanna Hawks on Oct. 13 and Strathmore Hawks on Oct. 19. All games start at 5 p.m.

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

Camrose Refugee Centre set to open By Murray Green

The Camrose Refugee Centre will be holding a grand opening on Wednesday, Oct. 18 at 6 p.m. The Centre, located in the Messiah Lutheran Church, will be celebrating with a pot luck supper with introductions of refugee families and showing of the film, The Eritrean Exodus. The mission of the Centre is to encourage and facilitate the sponsorship, and support of refugees in Camrose. It is a continuation of the services previously provided by the former Camrose Refugee Coordinating Committee. “The concept of the Centre has been developed over a number of years mainly by Erhard Pinno, Joe McMorrow and Alan Ford,” said volunteer coordinator Yvonne Myrehaug. “Anyone interested in supporting refugees by volunteering time is welcome to have their names added to our list of volunteers.” Donations can be made to the Camrose Refugee Centre in care of Messiah Lutheran Church. The Centre is a place where new Canadians to Camrose can receive needed support and assistance. The Centre and member churches are presently assisting with approximately five to 10 refugee families in Camrose. “We really want this to be the window for the refugees so they have a place that the community knows of,” added Erhard Pinno, chair of the Camrose Refugee Advisory Group. “If there is a refugee family that has some needs, they can be referred to us and we will be able to provide them as much support as we can with different volunteers.” Pinno indicated the CRC is an extension to the type of help already offered through the churches. “This refugee centre would help all new Canadians who come to us in one way or another and have some needs.” Day-to-day staffing requirements of the CRC would be met by volunteers, and reports on activities and results will be available every six months. The CRC may be contacted by phone at 780-7812846, or by email at camrose

It’s the little things that make a house a home “We’ve had a fantastic experience with Zetsen Master Builders. Our realtor introduced us and, from the beginning, Zetsen has been nothing but accommodating. The houses we looked ked at all had little touches that have been included as a result sult of customer feedback. An example of this is the motion-activated on-activated light in the pantry instead of a switch. Zetsen is also quick to respond to any issues ues that we might have. When the weather got really cold, we noticed that one of our exterior doors wasn’t asn’t sealing correctly. Celina responded to our call quickly uickly and had the problem fixed the next morning. We are extremely pleased with the quality ty of the workmanship, the friendly and efficient nt customer service, and reliability of Zetsen n and their employees.” MICHELLE & COLIN HAMILTON

“Some of the most wonderful innovations we provide in our homes have evolved from discussions with our clients. Identifying wants and needs, and finding thoughtful solutions for any issues that might arise for our homebuyers, is an important part of our work and after sales service.” CELINA BRISSON Customer Service Representative

Beautiful quality home

By Lori Larsen

Looking for a move-in ready family home in immaculate condition? This wellbuilt bi-level is the perfect fit, located in an established neighbourhood close to parks, playground and the golf course. As you pull up in front of this home, you will be more than impressed with the unbelievable curb appeal of a wellmanicured lawn and gorgeous brick steps bordered by curving accents that lead you to the entrance. Once inside, the bright open concept and amazing hardwood floors give an overall sense of style. The trendy colours and white trim make the home look brand new. The large window in the living room fills the area with warm natural sunlight and is accented with classic wood shutters that can be closed for privacy while adding that extra design touch. The large open kitchen features oak cabinets, stainless appliances and a large walk-in pantry. The centre island provides even more counter space and is the perfect place to sit and enjoy morning coffee or for the children to sit having an after-school snack. Adjoining the kitchen is a good-sized dinette area convenient for family sit-down dinners and entertaining. A garden door

leads from the kitchen to the back deck where entertaining can extend to the great outdoors. Rounding off the main floor are a fourpiece main bathroom, bedroom and a master suite with a wonderful walk-in closet and its own private three-piece en suite. The lower level is completely finished in the same quality and style as the upper level. There is a large family room perfect for watching the big game or family movie night. Completing the lower level is a bedroom that would make an ideal room for an older child or spacious guest room, another room that could be used as a home office, gym or extra bedroom and a three-piece bathroom with a walk-in shower. The backyard is completely fenced and landscaped and large enough for children to enjoy playing within eyesight. Back alley access brings you to a 24’ x 24’ heated detached garage and RV parking.
