Camrose police spot stolen truck Oct. 18

A loss prevention officer at a west end business recognized a male in their store who was previously charged with stealing merchandise. When the 62-year-old male realized he was being watched, he quickly dropped

the items he was carrying and left the store. Camrose police are investigating. While on patrol police noted three occupants in a welding truck leaving a convenience store and travel west on 48th Avenue. When police conducted checks

on the licence plate it was determined that it had been stolen out of Lloydminster. Police lost visual contact of the vehicle and later returned to the convenience store where video surveillance is being utilized to identify the three occupants.

Wild Rose Co-op Theft of vehicles Oct. 17

Camrose police received a call of a theft of fuel then a second call of an erratic driver on the east end of Camrose. Police located the vehicle on the side of the road with a flat tire. When the male observed police, he got back into the vehicle and fled east on Hwy 13 at a high rate of speed. Police did not pursue the vehicle as it was being driven in a manner that was a risk to public safety. It was determined the vehicle was stolen out of Leduc and the 17-yearold male driver was identified. The vehicle was later located abandoned in Bawlf where the male stole another vehicle, which he then rolled causing himself injury. The male was arrested by RCMP and is facing numerous charges.

Kingman Rink of Dreams will soon host happy skaters By Lori Larsen They built it and now they will be coming. Kingman Rink of Dreams is nearing completion and as soon as the weather permits the rink will be flooded and the fun will begin. After nearly two years of hard work and dedication by the Kingman Recreation Association (KRA), Kingman residents, volunteers and numerous donations by Camrose and area businesses and other organizations, the Rink of Dreams has become a wonderful reality. Facilities such as the Kingman Rink are more than the sports played there. They become the focal point for a community. A place to gather and share in the truer meaning of community. “We are really exited to get that sense of community happening,” said Lauren Anderson secretary of KRA. “I think there are a lot of young families that are really looking for that centre and the rink will help facilitate that.” The rink also gives youth and children a place to come and play, with no set schedules, the ability to meet and make new friends and just have fun. It will not only offer amazing skating opportunities on a regulation sized rink but has already proven to be a hot spot in the summer as well, hosting the newly formed 4-H, Bits and Spurs club comprised of horse enthusiasts from the Kingman and Tofield areas, who are meeting at the Kingman hall and utilizing the Kingman rink as a quality outdoor riding arena. “I am super excited,” smiled nine-year-old Kate Anderson. “We can get riding in it (the rink) in the summer with our 4-H club and we can skate on it in the winter and have skating parties and have fun.” According to Kate the 4-H club will be holding achievement day at the facility and riding nights during the summer. “And maybe have barbecues.” With enthusiasm Kate added. “It is also cool that there is going to be skates and equipment, such as helmets, jerseys, pads and goalie equipment, for people who don’t have hockey equipment to borrow,” graciously explaining that KRA will have a bunch of hockey equipment that has been barely used, to borrow. KRA member Trent Kenyon further explained that the equipment was donated by the Sports Central organization in an effort to launch the initiative in other communities. “We (KRA) will loan out the equipment and then receive it back at the

communities in the next five years.” To view the video submitted by the KRA visit https://youtube/o1LVcjJIdew. “Every donation whether it be monetary, work or material in kind, has contributed to the success of this project,” said Kenyon. Flourishing dreams

An aerial view of the Kingman Rink of Dreams shows the breadth of the project including the regulation sized rink complete with new rink boards and the indoor facility that houses the Kingman post office, change area, ice resurfacing machine, storage and maintenance shop, canteen and washrooms.

end of the year,” said Kenyon adding this will make it possible to maintain the equipment and continue the cycle of being able to loan it out again. “This will decrease some of the costs and gets children out to participate.” Sheldon Oleksyn , executive director for Sports Central spoke further to the initiative of supplying communities with gently used equipment for loan, and what it means to have facilities such as Kingman Rink. “The Rink of Dreams provides a setting and a place so that children can gather and play and we are happy to be involved in the project to supply equipment so that children who don’t have access to that equipment, for a number of reasons primarily financial and other, can have that equipment in order to introduce them to that sport. “Nobody can really do it themselves so it is natural to look for organizations that can take a piece of that challenge and provide what they can in order to make that dream a reality.”

brate Canada’s 150th FCC AgriSpirit fund has been increased from $1 to $1.5 million and will be used for projects like hospitals and medical centres, fire and rescue equipment, playground, food banks, libraries, arenas, swimming pools, recreation areas and community centres.

Generosity abound

If not for the generosity of many individuals, organizations and local businesses the Rink of Dreams would not have been able to achieve the amazing goals it has and foster many other dreams of youth in the community. John Wegenast senior director Farm Credit Canada (FCC) remarked on the importance FCC places on donating to local community initiatives such as The Rink of Dreams. “It is important to give back to the agriculture community and the rural areas that we support with our business and that also support our business.” FCC supports rural capital projects and is presently funding 78 community groups across Canada as they work to enhance their public spaces. In an effort to cele-

ects visit Specif ically, FCC donated $20,000 to the Kingman Rink of Dreams. “I think it is especially cool that we are investing back in outdoor rinks,” observed Wegenast. “When I was a child there were lots and they have more-aless disappeared. It’s nice to see a few of them popping back up again, it is a different experience then skating inside.” Kenyon spoke further

per year to Alberta nonprofits whose aim is to offer sports and recreation programs to children and youth in a different unique way, “ said Kenyon. “Part of their program is, each of the five agencies that receives funds does a final report and video and then have an opportunity for an additional $50,000. If we win the $50,000 it will go towards seed money to build 10 similar facilities in other Northern Alberta

Recognizing the concern that there are less opportunities for children and youth who just want a place to go and skate or pick up a game of shinny, as opposed to more organized sports, the KRA took on the task of building the Kingman Rink and indoor facility that will service not only Kingman, but outlaying areas as well. “The rink is especially great for any children and youth that are into hockey,” said Kenyon referring to the fact that many indoor facilities are often booked solid thus making it difficult to get ice time. “If they (young adults) can drive or parents are willing to bring them out to Kingman for a couple of hours to skate on a really nice outdoor surface, they can come out and play some shinny.” The Kingman Rink will be flooded as soon as the weather permits tentatively planned for the early part of December. The grand opening is planned for the new year. “We are hoping to have a dinner, charity hockey game, and concert at the hall, but no specifics are known at this point,” explained Kenyon. “All the work has been put into building it and soon we will be able to transition into planning events for it.” Although close to being fully funded, donations are a still welcome. “We are presently in the process of purchasing a skidsteer and ice resurfacing machine and putting in bleachers, all of which are wild cards as far as costs,” said Kenyon. On a final note KRA president Susan Francis said. “Our (Kingman) post office is at the rink now. It is a real central drawing spot for the Hamlet and the community. It is big thing for our community to have that central spot.” For more information on the Kingman Rink of Dreams visit Donations can be made through the ATB CARES Program (available on the Kingman Community Hall website.)

Think about recycling when buying clothing By Murray Green

Most of us don’t think twice when we purchase new clothing. However, we should. Last summer, the Association for Life-Wide Living in Alberta (ALL) research assistant Amy Lechelt talked about the impacts (environmental and social) of the fast fashion industry. Her project called Threads: The Clothes We Wear came forward when the thrift store in the city told Jane Ross that they had to pay to dump the clothing they cannot sell in the landfill. “I was tasked to research alternatives and I was compelled by the fashion industry and I want others to know of the damage it is doing to our planet and people around the world,” said Amy. “This is something that I already wanted to look into in my personal life. I wanted to become a more conscience consumer when it came to my clothes.” People now think about food in a different way, such as going organic or eating healthier products. “When it comes to our clothing, its not something we think about. It is hard to find information on an ethical choice. Its not straight forward,” said Amy. “I was buying a product, merino wool t-shirts, and I was thinking this is a high quality product that is going to last. The company said they are big on sustainability. After some investigation, I found out they are not as transparent as I thought. They were accused of something called green-washing, which is a term used when companies just stamp on their brand that they are ethical, but they have nothing to show for it.” When a product says that it is made in Canada, it means that it only has to be made 51 per cent in Canada. “We are getting clothes made in Bangladesh, brought over to Canada and a zipper is sewn in and a tag Made in Canada is sewn into it and it then becomes a made in Canada product. That is confusing too,” she explained. “We feel good when we donate clothes to the local thrift store and we think we are doing something good when in fact it is actually costing them as an expense. This leaves us with the problem of what to do with the material.” The world has too many clothes and nobody wants them. “We can blame fast fashion. They are clothes that are made cheaply, produced cheaply and then sold cheaply. They mimic clothes that are on the runway. Before these trendy clothes would come out

It is really shocking.” To get a fashion designed, made and on the racks can take as little as three weeks. “This cycle of cheap is very problematic as you can imagine. Companies don’t want to spend big money on production, so only three per cent of the clothes are made in North America. People put pressure on the clothing makers in developing countries to meet deadlines, so working conditions are not very good for these workers as a result.” When clothes are sold for

not a lot of money it gives the illusion that people are wearing fancy clothes and it plays into the theme of, the more stuff you have the better you are, myth. “Think about a cotton shirt that is sold for $3.99 Canadian. Someone had to grow, spray and harvest the cotton. It has to be shipped across the world to be sold for $3.99 and still make money. Think how fundamentally wrong that is,” said Amy. “What is the true cost and what wasn’t accounted for.” The environment is one thing that is not taken into consideration. “In the big centres, they only use about 10

Sometimes they are baled and sent to developing countries, but this is dangerous because it creates a superior-inferior complex and it can harm their local textiles industry as well,” shared Amy. She suggested buying clothes that are biodegradable because they are less toxic in the landfills. Amy also said friends could exchange clothes to make them feel fresh again. She would like to see local designers create new items from old clothes to make them attractive again.

Rotary club offers student exchange Submitted

The Rotary Club of Camrose is looking to give a high school student a year of travel and an opportunity that will last a lifetime. The Rotary is searching for a local Grade 10 or 11 student interested in experiencing immersion in another culture for a year. The Rotary Youth Exchange Program is one of the world’s most respected exchange programs. Every year, about 7,000 students spend a school year in another country learning about that culture from the “inside”, becoming fluent in a new language, developing an appreciation for their culture, and forming lifelong friendships. The Camrose Rotary Club has been involved with the exchange program since 1982, sponsoring a total of 25 students to experience a myriad of cultures, and hosting 20 students to live and attend school in Camrose. The club presently sponsors an exchange student every second year, and hosts a student from another country in that same year. The screening process looks for students who will be excellent ambassadors of Rotary and of Canada; who love meeting new people, are open to new ideas/experiences, and comfortable with change. We look for maturity, experience with travel, involvement in the community, and a family who fully supports the exchange. The lucky student will spend the next six and seven months preparing for his or her year abroad, leaving Canada in August 2018. During the 2018-19 school year,

the student will live with three or four Rotary families, attending school, participating in Rotary functions and spending time with their host families, fellow students, and other exchange students from around the world. Experiences include new friendships, new languages, amazing experiences, and a steep “maturing curve!” Returning students and their parents describe the experience as life changing. Ashley White was the most recent Rotary Youth Exchange student from Camrose. She spent the last school year in Vienna, Austria and is now back at Our Lady of Mount Pleasant completing her high school education. She

speaks very positively about her experiences and encourages all students to consider applying for the program. Rotary is a worldwide organization of business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations, and helps build goodwill and peace in the world. There are over one million Rotarians in 30,000 clubs in 167 countries. The youth exchange program promotes world understanding, and broadens the horizons of thousands of young people every year.

Bawlf community rallies around healthy living By Lori Larsen When a community pulls together to ensure better living for the residents, wonderful things happen. A group of residents in Bawlf took it upon themselves to submit a health project proposal to AVIVA Community Fund, in an effort to not only raise funds for a project that promotes healthy living but demonstrate the importance of maintaining the sustainability of smaller rural communities. The project proposed to AVIVA involves the building of outdoor exercise options for all ages and public shade spaces for UV protection in an effort to reduce the risk of cancer. The project proposal includes the construction of a covered outdoor gym in the Bawlf community sport park and a playground with adjacent UV protection for the school. The outdoor gym would be a 24 by 50 foot structure housing eight pieces of outdoor gym equipment in half of the structure, leaving the remaining part of the structure open to provide a shaded flex area. The structure would also create an opportunity for the park to become a focal point in the community, encouraging multi-generational connectivity. The shade structure and playground for the school would replace one of the existing structures which no longer meets safety requirements, as well as provide a shade structure to protect users from the harm associated with exposure to UV rays. Bawlf School principal Tracy Beattie commented on the impact the proposed project will have on the school and community and the amazing efforts of the Bawlf Educational Support Team (BEST), composed

of parents, in following through with this project. “It has been about a year and a half of working on this project,” explained Beattie. “Members of the committee, such as Gail Cunningham, have been writing grants and a couple of those grants have come through. “They are matching grants which meant whatever we were asking for we had to be able to match. We are getting a little more than $50,000 so the matching money had to come from somewhere.” Along with the grant moneys the project received, donations also came from community organizations in the form of money, material and use of equipment, as well BEST members worked casinos and did fundraisers at the school allowing most of the funds for the project to now be in place. “I think for us (Beattie and Vice principal Shane Gau) as new administrators it really gave us an opportunity to get to know the community organizations and feel a part of that community.” Gau added “It allowed us to make connections right away and build relationships, that was key. Bringing all the groups together and letting them talk about some common goals. “The money is great and the opportunity now for children is great but we have to look at the intangibles that came out of this project which will probably last a lot longer than the equipment.” Both Beattie and Gau spoke highly of the amount of support received by everyone throughout the community and how, right from the beginning, the organizing committee felt it was vital to include

Part of the Bawlf initiative will include replacing some older playground equipment at the school.

the school as part of this project. “The school had already been through the process of grant proposals and fund raising for the building itself,” noted Gau. “We felt this community was already stretched for what they had given to the school. As much as we said you have already given enough they kept saying this (the school) is still a big part of the community and we still want to do things on your area.” Beattie added. “Student voice was also a big part of the project and what happened at the school and will be with what happens in the back with the playground piece as well. It is amazing how the community has been so on board with supporting the school part of this project. “They really feel the school is the heart of their community and they are incredible supporters. We are so lucky.” Keeping it rural

A large part of the ini-

tiative for the Bawlf project also stemmed from the concept of maintaining sustainable rural communities and ensuring that residents not only remain in smaller communities but also attracting others to move in and raise families there. “Students are more transient then they ever used to be,” said Beattie. “It used to be when you started school in a community you graduated from that school and you would be fighting tooth and nail if someone moved you away. “Now there are more options in a bigger school, or better facilities, those are the kinds of things that will pull children (youth) out of a small community.” Beattie also said that many parents are already commuting to other communities, in many cases for employment, so it is easy to just drive children to the schools there as well. “We have lots of people in this school that have a vested interest here,” she went on. “Their children

went to school here, they live in this community and even if living in Camrose area, their roots are still in this small community. “We are only 20 minutes from Camrose and we have this new school and facilities and our school has had success in academics and athletics,” all of which she remarked plays a huge factor in people remaining in and moving to Bawlf. In addition to the existing new playground, the basketball, volleyball courts, running track, long jump pits and ball diamond, the soon to be new shade structure and replacement of the older playground equipment will give residents one more reason to stay in the community and entice new residents to move there. “After school the children are using the playground and facilities. The community uses it at night and on the weekends. The basketball courts are full when we drive away. People will drive into a small town and see the facilities and say that would be a great place to raise our children.” Gau said an added bonus of having Gail Cunningham on the committee has helped to bridge a gap existing between Rosalind and Bawlf and the two communities are now working together to create the best experience for all residents in and around the area. On a final note, Beattie indicated that the committee and community, as a whole, have a wealth of knowledge on taking what is available and running with it and being able to put funds together. “There are really strong people in this community that helped with coming up with creative ways to fund raise and pool funds and make the best use of that money to help it grow to what we needed.”

Between 7 and 7:30 a.m. a vehicle was stolen from a parking spot outside a residence in the 4500 block of 66 Street. The owner had started his vehicle to warm it up and the unlocked vehicle was taken during the short time he left the truck unattended. The vehicle was recovered later in the day in a rural area outside of Camrose and it had been significantly damaged. During a traffic stop, open alcohol was noted inside a vehicle. The occupants exited the truck and a loaded .22 rifle and a compound bow were noted hidden under a blanket at the feet of one of the occupants. All five occupants were issued tickets for their open alcohol and the driver and a passenger were charged with several offences for the weapons. As a reminder, any firearms that are being transported in a vehicle must be unloaded, stored out of reach and have a trigger lock on them.

Local high school student does research at university

By Lori Larsen

For one Camrose high school student, being able to conduct research in one of the province’s university labs was an opportunity of a lifetime. Kaleigh Taschuk, an Our Lady Mount Pleasant Grade 12 student, was one of 41 Grade 11 students from across Alberta (one from Yellowknife, NWT) given the opportunity to work in labs this summer at the University of Alberta as part of the annual WISEST (Women in Scholarship, Engineering, Science and Technology) Summer Research Program. The program offered students from rural, aboriginal and urban communities a six-week paid research assistant position. Kaleigh discovered the program while checking online on Google classroom

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster Grade 12 Our Lady Mount Pleasant student Kaleigh Taschuk shows the research poster she completed.

during a session with one of her teachers, looking at options for summer positions. “This was a summer job and research at the University of Alberta lab

for Grade 11 students only. I always liked science and thought it seemed like a good idea.” Kaleigh thought the experience would be benefi-

cial in helping her narrow down the field of choices for university, specifically in the sciences. “I was very confused and had no idea what I wanted to go into. I just knew I liked science so this was perfect for me.” Once she discovered the program, Kaleigh had a couple months to complete the application. In order to qualify, applicants needed a minimum grade requirement of 85 per cent as an average, two teacher reference letters, a transcript of grades, completion of an online questionnaire including what particular area of work they would prefer and a written personal history about themselves. The goal of WISEST is to encourage students to look into fields of research in which their gender is currently underrepresented. The program placed 38

female students researching in science, engineering and technology and three male students researching in nursing and nutrition. “They wanted students to come into the program with an open mind and outgoing attitude,” remarked Kaleigh. “They tried to give us one of our top choices, but if they weren’t available, we were able to experience something we hadn’t thought of before. It was a good opportunity. I don’t think there was a part of this program that wasn’t a good opportunity.” Kaleigh was placed in a chemistry faculty working in the Jonathan Veinot group researching nanocrystal-nylon hybrid materials for sensing nitroaromatic compounds.

The Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN) in the United Kingdom is urging everyone in England to take vitamin D supplements, which according to the Vitamin D Society of Canada, should give Canadians a reason to start looking at their own vitamin D intake levels. Much like England, Canada shares the same sunshine limitations, which means because of the northern latitude of both countries, vitamin D-producing sunlight can only be captured by our skin between the months of May and October. The downside of low vitamin D levels is that bones can become thin and brittle because vitamin D plays an important role in regulating the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body making it essential for bone health and more. “We can see in the UK, vitamin D intakes are low and status is one of the poorest,” said Dr. Susan Whiting, scientific advisor for the Vitamin D Society and professor at the University of Saskatchewan. “Both countries share similar latitudes, similar dietary habits and distribution of people of European and non-European ancestry. But diet alone in neither country can allow us to achieve optimal vitamin D status especially in winter months.” Statistics Canada reports that up to 12 million Canadians, 35 per cent, do not meet vitamin D blood level requirements. That number rises to more than 40 per cent in the winter. The summer sun allows most Canadians to naturally generate adequate levels of vitamin D, but according to the Vitamin D Society, come winter, that won’t be possible. The solution to keeping levels normal in the winter, however, is from vitamin D supplements or artificial UVB exposure. “While vitamin D supplements will help provide benefits in the winter months, fortified foods, which are sometimes relied upon to provide vitamin D, do not actually provide enough vitamin D in the winter,” said Dr. Whiting. “For those who remain indoors, or are otherwise prevented from sun exposure in summer, a supplement all year long might be the answer.” The Vitamin D Society encourages Canadians to use their time in the midday summer sun wisely to stock up on the sunshine vitamin, but to remember to use common sense and not let skin burn. To learn more about vitamin D, visit

K aleigh br ief ly explained the thesis behind the project in that silicon nanocrystals glow under UV light, but when they come into contact with nitroaromatic compounds, such as those found in the Date Rape Drug, the crystals will stop glowing. “My project was to prove that we can make this nylon crystal hybrid and the nylon will also stop glowing when it comes into contact with these substances. So we could create a nylon wearable device that can be used at a nightclub and if you are afraid your drink was drugged you could put a drop of it (your drink) on your bracelet and it would stop glowing (a patented idea),” she explained. At the end of the six week program the research groups presented their findings on a research poster at a Celebration of Research. “We put them up on the poster board and people came and we spoke about the research. “I went into the program with basic chemistry 20 knowledge and I was working with people who were going through to get their PhD. At first you could tell there was an obvious knowledge gap and it took a while for me to get it, but my supervisors were very good with helping and explaining it to me and by the end of the program I didn’t notice the gap as much. I was thinking, I can science with these guys.” Because Kaleigh was from Camrose and the drive back and forth would have been a bit much on a 17-year-old with a fairly new drivers licence, she chose to stay at the University of Alberta in the St. Joseph’s College Womens’ residence (an expense paid for by individual participants). “It is right on campus, only a five minute walk to my building. So I not only got to experience the university life and what it is to be a grad student but also what it is like to live on campus. And I loved it.” Besides the Monday through Friday lab research work, on Friday afternoons the WISEST program participants were given an opportunity to hear people (university students at different levels) speak about the different options available to study and the entire experience of university. “When I went into the program I thought I needed to experience everything that was presented to me, including going on the LRT to the Taste of Edmonton (with her residence group)
