On Friday, March 16, University of Alberta Augustana Campus is celebrating ten years of Indigenous student services by hosting a Round Dance in the gymnasium at Augustana. The Round Dance is a dance of friendship, where everyone celebrates together. Following Nehiyaw (Plains Cree) tradition, the evening will begin with a pipe ceremony at 5:00 p.m., a feast at 6:00 p.m. and the Round Dance itself which starts at 7:00 p.m. This community celebration is open to everyone and is free to attend. Don’t leave too early or you’ll miss the giveaway, where everyone in attendance is thanked for coming through the gifting of small, useful items – this will happen near midnight!

Letters to the Editor Twelve favourites

Okay, I admit it. What with one thing and another, I simply couldn’t think of something to write about this week. More accurately, I had so many things I was thinking about, bopping around in my mind and bumping into one another, that I couldn’t settle on just one of them. So, as what I hope will feel like a gift to you, here are some things that other people have written – a dozen of my favourite quotes. I hope at least one of them will brighten your day. “Each time someone stands up for an ideal or acts to improve the lot of others…he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope.” Robert Kennedy “I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish God didn’t trust me so much.” Mother Teresa “Anyone can go to the top of a mountain and wear a saffron robe and meditate, and be grounded and centered and wise. What the world needs now is for us to come down from the mountaintop and go into the market place, and be grounded and centered and wise.” A Tai Chi instructor whose name I have forgotten “I’d never want to belong to a club that would have me for a member.” Groucho Marx “If I’ve learned one has been to save the energy I used to expend on being angry about injustice and put that energy into thinking and feeling joy, prosperity, sustainability, health and justice for all. This is what will change the world...a groundswell of people pouring their energy into manifesting their ‘preferred future’ instead of being worn down by disillusion and disappointment.” Molly Carlile “Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.” Joseph Campbell “There is vitality, a life force, energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action. And because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it.” Martha Graham “Every positive change – every jump to a higher level of energy and awareness – involves a rite of passage. Each time we ascend to a higher rung on the ladder of personal evolution, we must go through a period of discomfort, of initiation. I have never found an exception.“ Dan Millman “Each one of us is like a single thread in a huge tapestry, woven in a complex and colorful pattern. We may be only one strand, yet we’re all integral to the finished image. We affect the lives of others just by choosing whether or not to be our true selves. Our only obligation to others, our only purpose, is to express our uniqueness and allow others to do the same.” Anita Moorjani “If I’d known I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself.” Eubie Blake “O God, help me to believe the truth about myself no matter how beautiful it is.” Marina Wiederkehr “When we come to the edge of all the light we have known and step into the darkness of the unknown, we have to believe one of two things will happen: something will come up to meet us or we will be taught to fly.” Patrick Overton Happy flying! ***

We owe a huge thank you to Boden Sand and Gravel for the extensive grading and graveling to repair the road two miles of road north of Edberg. I can remember when a large gravel company from Edmonton was running 85 trucks from Edberg to Edmonton with each truck making four runs a day over this road. This really pounded out the road and they were suppose to help maintain the road. Now Boden Sand and Gravel are held responsible for the maintenance of this road with an average of 20 truck loads per day during the busy season. They did a good job in restoring the road. Robert Snider, New Norway Appreciated help

This thank you is to the young lady who saw a need and responded. On Wednesday, Feb. 21

we purchased a new recliner and brought it home. As we were trying to unload it and take it inside a young lady appeared from nowhere, greeted us and proceeded to carry it into the house for us. We were so caught by surprise by this act of kindness by a stranger that we really didn’t get her name or thank her properly. Young lady—thank you so much for your kind and capable assistance. If you read this, call us at 780672-6404. From the grateful seniors at 44 Mount Pleasant Drive. Viv and Ed Hapke, Camrose Work together

All of us know or have known a school teacher. Most of us know they have a tough job. Laid at their feet are the responsibilities of not only educating children but trying to instill in them some moral fibre as defined by our society, some accepted standards of behavior, a semblance of common decency. They are educators and psychologists and disciplinarians and counsellors. They work with children who come from a wide range of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. In the face of these exceptional challenges, they do their best. The job asks of them to be kind-hearted, empathetic, patient, knowledgeable and doing what’s best for all those who come through the doors of their schools. School teachers are also

easy targets. They are often the first to be blamed, first to be held accountable and first to be questioned and criticized when the behaviour of a student goes awry. They are often expected to fix problems that began far before they were tasked with the job of educating a youngster, a youngster whose formative years are the root of the behaviour that manifests itself in the classroom. As members of our society, I believe all of us need to take responsibility in upholding the values we want to see in our young people. It’s very easy to blame others. It’s easy to aim our criticism, often unfounded, at what is perceived to be a faceless institution. But within that faceless institution are people, friends, neighbours, members of our community, who are doing their best and who believe in the importance of what they are doing. Now, I am definitely biased, we all have our biases, don’t we? I am married to a school teacher and the company I represent does business with institutional organizations in this region. But that doesn’t preclude me from making one simple statement: we’re all in this together. If we could share ideas without pointing fingers, we all would be better off. Mike Ploner, Camrose

Notice of Application Confined Feeding Operation

Les Isaac has filed application for amendment RA17035A with the Natural Resources Conservation Board (NRCB) regarding a confined feeding operation (CFO) on SW 32-44-20 W4M in Camrose County of Alberta. The application is to remove condition #5 of Approval RA17035. Condition #5 states: “The permit holder shall depopulate all the feedlot pens and remove all manure (except the bedding pack) from those pens, by March 31 of each year. The permit holder shall not re-populate any of the feedlot pens until the following September of each year at the earliest.” The amendment application states that condition #5 is no longer required because the permit holder has built a runoff control catch basin that satisfies the requirement for surface water protection. The application does not request a change to the permitted number of beef feeders at the CFO.

RCMP receives funding to address rural crime By Murray Green

Help is on the way. More RCMP members will be added to rural areas across the province in the future. The Government of Alberta announced an investment of $8 million that will enable Alberta RCMP to place more employees where they can make the most impact: on the streets and in communities across the province. This investment demonstrates the province’s confidence in the Alberta RCMP’s systematic and evidence-led Crime Reduction Strategy – a collaborative policing approach designed to address the root causes of crime and breaking the cycle of criminal activity in a community. In partnership with the province, Alberta RCMP has developed an action plan that will enable the force to address rural crime by adding 39 new officer positions and 40 civilian employees in areas that will ultimately lead to more RCMP officers on the road. The investment represents additional support for Crime Reduction Units in communities that need it the most, six new intelligence-focused officers, four additional crime analysts and more civilian staff to cut down on paperwork so that officers can focus on investigations, patrols, and engaging with their communities. “Rural Crime Reduction Units are designed to act fast to target repeat offenders who commit the vast majority of crimes in an area,” said Deputy Commissioner Todd Shean. “I can assure you, if you are committing crime in Alberta, we will identify you and we will stop you.” More officers will help. “Rural police officers are part of their communities,” said Kathleen Ganley, Minister of Justice and Solicitor General. “They do difficult and extremely important work every day. I want to thank the RCMP for the work they do to protect Albertans. I’m confident this plan will give our rural police officers more tools in their toolbox to fight crime.” The RCMP is proud to be the rural police force of Alberta. With the cooperation and support of the Government of Alberta and other community partners, Albertans can be certain that the RCMP’s crime reduction strategies in rural communities will be

innovative, sophisticated and successful. Each RCMP district is equipped with a Crime Reduction Team dedicated to targeting prolific offenders, particularly in the areas of break and enters, vehicle thefts and thefts of other property. District Crime Reduction Teams have arrested 219 people, have laid 469 Criminal and Drug charges and have arrested 170 wanted persons. The Alberta RCMP Traffic Units (RTU), in addition to promoting highway safety through enforcement activities, are also targeting traveling criminals. In January 2018 alone, the RTU Traffic Units made nine major seizures of drugs and contraband, totalling in excess of $1.3 million. This resulted in 14 arrests and 19 new Criminal charges being laid.

This column was written by both Geraint Osborne (sociology) and Tim Parker (psychology) professors. While the exact date is in question, it is certain that the Canadian government will legalize cannabis in the summer or fall of 2018. Polls suggest that the majority of Canadians support this initiative, although some remain adamantly opposed. Regardless of one’s posiGeraint Osborne, tion, it is clear that it will take Sociology, Augustana a few years for Canadians to Campus, University adjust to the legalized environof Alberta ment and the burgeoning cannabis industry, especially those working in law, mental health and education. It is important to remember that legalization is primarily about regulation. Prohibition has been unsuccessful. Governments and people have grown weary with the failed, and dangerous war on drugs approach. Legalization will allow for the better control of cannabis, the most widely used illicit substance. Regulation is central to a harm reduction approach to drug use as it allows for the production and sale of a safer product, takes the product out of the hands of organized crime, reduces police corruption, and channels tax money into health and education initiatives which are far more effective in reducing the harms associated with drug misuse. As we learned from alcohol prohibition, where there is a demand there will be a supply. If we are going to reduce the harms associated with cannabis misuse, we are far better off addressing the demand side of the equation while we carefully control the supply side. We have made tremendous gains in combating tobacco smoking this way, not to mention the harms associated with alcohol misuse, such as drinking and driving. A legalized environment will also allow for the further study of cannabis, especially its effects on the brain and its consequences for mental health. In addition to a general moral attitude that taking drugs should be discouraged, some cite the effect that cannabis has on our cognitive abilities as reasons for opposing its legalization. In particular, there is fear based on the findings that cannabis impairs driving and other tasks requiring coordination. It is true that cannabis does have this effect, and one of the issues arising from this is that, at present, there is no incontrovertible way to detect the presence of cannabis and establish the dose taken in impaired drivers. However, I think we can be confident that now that such a test will be very lucrative, one or more will soon be developed. Opposition also arises because of the common conception that marijuana produces severe brain damage, a conception initially fostered by the antidrug efforts in the 1940s in the USA, almost comically manifested in the famous film Reefer Madness. Much research has been done based on these dramatic but largely unsupported initial claims about the danger of cannabis. While the results are somewhat contradictory, there is no question that the amount of brain damage that has been reported is dwarfed by the catastrophic level of cell loss in the brain that occurs as a result of regular consumption of alcohol. Indeed, as demonstrated by many studies, such as those by neuropsychopharmacologist David Nutt and his colleagues, while cannabis is not benign, it is less harmful to individuals and society than tobacco and alcohol. If harm alone was reason enough to criminalize a substance, then these would definitely have to be banned. But we don’t because we know that doing so would lead to far worse problems. It’s far better to control these substances and minimize their harms through other mechanisms. At the end of the day, drug misuse is a health and education problem, not a crime problem. Join Augustana professors Geraint Osborne (Sociology) and Tim Parker (Psychology) alongside Deena Hinshaw, a medical officer of health and Acting Deputy Chief Medical Officer of Health, and Michelle Eikerman, an Alberta Health Services Addictions counsellor, for a panel presentation on the implications of cannabis legalization, the latest research on the effects of cannabis on the brain, and how these findings should inform our overall process of legalizing cannabis and regulating its strength and availability. This free event will be held March 20 at noon in the Mayer Family Community Hall, Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre. A lunch is available upon request (free lunch for students with pre-registration). Register with Deb at olafson@ or call 780-679-1626.

Kodiaks tame horses in first playoff series By Murray Green

The Camrose Kodiaks were fired up in the first game of the Alberta Junior Hockey League playoffs on March 8. Local player Kyler Kupka scored twice to lead the Kodiaks to a 5-1 victory over the Calgary Mustangs. Camrose were ahead 2-0 after 20 minutes with Carson Welke netting a shorthanded marker and Kupka grabbing his first tally. The Mustangs fought back with a power play goal, but Camrose regained a two-goal lead late in the period from Ryan Hartman. Nic Correale and Kupka added power play markers in the third frame. Brock Bremer finished the night with three assists. Goalie Luke Lush stopped 27 of the 28

shots he faced. Meanwhile, Camrose fired 48 shots at the Mustangs’ cage. Camrose also won 6-3 and 4-3 in overtime to sweep the series. The Kodiaks wrapped up the regular season with a 4-1 loss to the top team in the AJHL on March 3. The Okotoks Oilers won 4-1 by scoring the first four goals of the game. Kyler Kupka replied for the Kodiaks. Netminder Lush stopped 31 of 35 shots. Camrose had 28 shots on the Oilers’ net. Bear facts Camrose earned home ice advantage in the best of five series against the Calgary Mustangs.

Numbers not enough to offer Christian Logos By Murray Green

It came down to numbers, or a lack of them, to offer Logos Christian education in Camrose and Tofield next year. Requests came from parents to have Christian programming available in both Camrose and Tofield under the Battle River School Division. BRSD

has been exploring the possibility of offering a Logos Christian Program in those communities. In Camrose, an information night was held last spring, which generated enough interest for the school division to go further in the planning process. This winter, Camrose parents were

invited to register for the program, with a sign-up deadline of Feb. 28. In Tofield, an information night took place this January, with parents asked to express their interest in the program by mid-February. A number of intent forms and registration forms were submitted in

each community, but in the end, the responses indicate there are simply not enough families expressing interest to make up a viable program. As a result, Battle River School Division will not be proceeding further with discussions about a Logos Christian Program

in either of Tofield or Camrose. For further information contact Diana White, director of learning services, or Diane Hutchinson, community relations advisor, for Battle River School Division. They can both be reached at 780-672-6131.

Augustana Vikings knocked out the SAIT Trojans in two straight games, 3-0 and 5-2, to advance to the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference semifinals against the NAIT Ooks. The Vikings shut out SAIT 3-0 on the strength of goaltending from Curtis Skip. He made all 40 saves he needed to as he bent, but didn’t break under the pressure in Calgary. Cody Young, Adam Osczevski and Dillan McCombie all scored single tallies, one in each period of play. The offence took over in the second outing as Augustana scored the last three goals in the 5-2 contest to take control and win the series in two games. Jimmy Sheehan, Osczevski, Mitch McMullin, Travis Mayan and Taylor Armbruster garnered a goal each to pace the Vikings’ attack.

Skip stopped 27 of the 39 shots directed his way in another stellar performance. The series win allowed the Vikings to play the Ooks in the next round. Curling

The Vikings earned bronze medals at the ACAC championships in Camrose and earned a trip to nationals. The top curling teams will continue on to the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association curling championships in Leduc from March 24 to 28. Skip Andrew Klassen, third Colton Simard, second Austin Lavallee, lead Aiden Anderson, alternate Jackson Sweder and coach Roger Galenza will be on the men’s side of the draw. Basketball

Talk things out for better mental health By Murray Green

It helps to talk with someone about how you’re feeling. They can listen to you or help you look at things differently. They might also be able to help you figure out why you feel like you do. Talking about things can be helpful in itself. Sharing can make you feel less alone and help relieve the stress of coping by yourself. The other person may be able to offer

reassurance, support, information, or help you connect with services, according to Alberta Health Services. When choosing someone to talk to, look for someone you’re comfortable with and trust–someone who will respect your privacy, will take you seriously, and will be understanding and accepting. Think of what direction you need and what you want to accomplish. Do you just

want to talk, find out where you can get more info, or find services such as counselling? Let them know you have something you want to talk about. You might want to write down what you want to say. Start by explaining that you need some help with a problem. Think of some examples from your life as this may help them to better understand what’s going on.

If you’re not sure how the person will react, try hinting at a similar issue. For example, talk about a story you read in the news and see how the person reacts. This will give you an idea of their views and whether they’re likely to be sympathetic. You could also start conversation more generally–talk about how you’ve not been feeling great, rather than say-

ing you’re feeling depressed, anxious or stressed. Be prepared for a range of different reactions. Remember that someone’s first reaction won’t be the same as their reaction when they’ve had time to process what you’ve said. Life is full of ups and downs, and sharing our experiences with the people who care about us is natural and healthy.

high-value items. People need to be able to identify their property quickly and not left scrambling when a theft has occurred. Make sure you have photos of any hard-to-identify items. An example would be hand tools that you own."

The 1938 Ford truck stolen in Camrose in late October 2017.

One additional item which caught the eye of CPS investigators and their RCMP counterparts, when searching the residence and property of suspect Swanson, was the 1938 Ford truck which was stolen from behind the north-side Camrose residence back in late October. (The abandoned and empty trailer was found several days after the theft on a dirt back road approximately six kilometers away from the rural residence of the suspect charged with this string of drug offences and thefts.) It remains unknown if this suspect is responsible for the actual theft of this vehicle and the trailer on which it was secured. Could he have been the driver of the vehicle of interest which appeared on the video surveillance tape prior to the theft? And who made the call to the truck owner several weeks after the theft offering to return it for a fee?  “It bears repeating that the truck captured on video may have had absolutely nothing to do with this case," suggests Camrose Police Service Detective Shawn Lofgren. “It’s also possible that someone else participated in this or other thefts of the goods found on the suspect's property. Will this ongoing investigation lead to additional arrests? At this point, we just don’t know.” CPS Const. Kelly Bauer provided a wrap-up to this news conference with a promising piece of advice: “We need to have the community involved by being alert, always. The Eyes on Camrose initiative which is now taking hold in the community allows every citizen to play an important role in keeping Camrose a safe place to live. The reality is that police cannot be everywhere, all the time, and we appreciate the community’s assistance in preventing and helping solve crime with information that they are able to provide. It is the eyes and ears of individuals that may provide the important piece of a puzzle that solves a crime.” Note: All individuals charged with a crime must be assumed to be innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Were any of these items stolen from you? Many items were recovered during execution of a search warrant at this property which police feel may be stolen and not reported as such. It’s possible that property owners may not even know these items are missing from their sheds, garages or other storage buildings. If you feel any of the following items may be your personal property, contact Camrose Police Service or the Camrose Detachment, RCMP.

Orange-colored gas auger, make unknown

Blue MIG Air Liquide welder, model M170

Water Wacker branded gas pressure washer (with Finnish IIHF lion hockey logo sticker)

Black/orange Baja 125 cc motorcycle

Camrose Friends of STARS reaches milestone By Lori Larsen

Supporting the lifesaving efforts of STARS has been a 25-year partnership for Camrose Friends of STARS and recently hit a donation milestone of $4 million! On Feb. 24, STARS celebrated Camrose Friends of STARS in an event held at the STARS Edmonton base at the Edmonton International Airport, with the unveiling of a prestigious logo. Present at the event was a Camrose Friends of STARS representative, STARS personnel and air medical crew and patient Marcus Hirschfield. On Feb. 14, 2013, Hirschfield, a constable with the RCMP, was on his way to investigate a motor vehicle accident travelling north of Highway 627, when his police vehicle was struck by an oncoming pickup truck that lost control and slid directly into his path. The driver of the pickup truck was able to get safely out of his vehicle, but the passenger had been ejected. W hen Con st. Hirschfield radioed for help, he indicated he thought his own leg was broken, but out of concern for the others involved, advised that the passenger of the pickup truck was not okay. As it turned out, the passenger was taken by ground ambulance to hospital with a broken leg, however Const. Hirschfield sustained a badly shattered femur causing concerns of damage to the femoral artery which can be fatal if not treated immediately. STARS was put into the air and subsequently into action, airlifting Const. Hirschfield to hospital where he underwent surgery. Rehabilitation followed and eventually he made a full recovery. In Hirschfield’s own words, STARS was there for him when he needed them. God forbid anyone else ever needs them, but they’ll be there for them as well. Hirschfield’s story is one more example of the impact donations to STARS has on lives in Alberta.

Twain’s play comes back to life



By Murray Green

Infinite Imagination Travelling Theatre will be bringing their comedy and fun routines back to the Bailey Theatre for five dates. They will be featuring the work of Mark Twain in Is He Dead? A Satirical Comedy In Three Acts playing March 15, 16, 17, 23 and 24. The first show begins at 8 p.m. The rest of the performances are a dinner theatre-style with dinner at 6:30 and the show at 8 p.m. Twain was fascinated by the theatre and made many attempts at playwriting to help pay his bills in his later years, many of which were mediocre. His best, Is He Dead?, was written by Twain in 1898 after he had emerged from one of the most serious bouts of depression in his life. For several years, Twain’s works have been the object of study by scholars and authors, but it was not until the contemporary American playwright David Ives adapted Is He Dead? for the modern stage that this play appeared on Broadway. Ives’ additions to Twain’s original script contributed to the success of this comically rich situation that is in all Twain’s



EXPERIENCE Wednesday, March 21 The Bailey Theatre Tickets at The Bailey Theatre Box Office 780.672.5510 or works. The play made its inaugural performance in 2007. The focus of the comedy is on a group of impoverished artists residing in Barbizon, France during the mid-19th century. Struggling along with his pupils is the famed JeanFrancois Millet, a young painter of genius. Millet is in love with Marie Leroux, but he is highly in debt to a villainous picture-dealer named Bastien Andre. Andre threatens to

foreclose on Millet and send him to debtor’s prison unless Marie marries him. Millet realizes that the only way he can pay his debts and keep Andre from marrying Marie is to die, as it is only after they are dead that painters achieve real fame and fortune for their artwork. With the help of his pupils and friends, it is decided that Millet should fake his death to make ends meet and be able to marry Marie.

Choir trip to Ottawa postponed By Joy-Anne Murphy

The Camrose and Area Children’s Choirs have had to postpone their planned trip to Ottawa for Canada Day 2018. Our singers were fundraising and preparing to attend a choral festival involving choirs from all across Canada, from June 28 to July 2 of this year. Sadly, a series of events have caused the festival to cancel their event this year. In 2017, this festival saw over 600 participants, all excited to attend the

150th anniversary celebrations in our nation’s capital. This meant numbers were already lower for 2018, but then a few choirs were unable to fulfill their commitment, there was a scheduling issue with the guest conductor and suddenly the festival was not able to run. The offer has been extended to our choirs to come next year, and the majority of our singers have been happy to carry on with a bit more time for fundraising and orga-



nizing. We may also end up with a few more singers who can make Canada Day 2019 work for them. New singers are welcome. We are winding down our 2017-18 season right now, but will start up again in the fall and plan to bring as many singers with us as are interested. For information about joining the choirs for the 2018-19 season, or to donate to our fundraising drive, visit our website at or call 780-672-3372.

It will teach us how to adapt to different ways of doing things and prepare us for future shows,” added Evyann. “In our classes, we do a little more syllabus and work on our dances for this year,” said Baylie, who agreed this routine will be more exciting than regular practice. “This helps us in the future because we get recognized by the company and get to know them more when we progress or maybe even join them,” said Evyann. “It inspires me to do more and that I’m not afraid to go back on stage and be able to dance in front of a lot of people,” Baylie said. Dancers from both local dance groups are working together. “It shows how they do things and it gives a chance to dance with others and be closer to them,” said Victoria. “It could show us things that we might consider doing and it can help us progress as well because we are a small community,” continued Evyann. “It’s a great opportunity because we don’t get to do it very often. It just shows us a lot,” said Baylie. Ballet Jörgen will be running classes for all of the studios to pass on their knowledge to all of the local dancers, not just those in the show. Receiving instruction from professional dancers on the road means a lot to the girls. “We get to see the professionals and how they dance and advise on doing shows,” said Victoria. “They are very seasoned from touring all over the world for years, so they have learned a lot and they offer that to us,” said Evyann.

The classic tale of Anastasia means a little more to nine local dancers due to the fact they will be participating in the show. Anastasia was the Russian Grand Duchess born to privilege only to be cast out into a post-revolutionary world. The story is re-created through dance at the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre on Wednesday, March 14, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Canada’s Ballet Jörgen performs the magical tale with assistance from Camrose Academy of Dance and Camrose Ballet members. Local dancers Evyann Graham, Jill Shapka, Erin Shapka, Victoria Watmoug, Kennedy Kenzie, Hershita Sainbhee, Tori Hagstrom, Lyla Young, Baylie Brown and Charlotte Thiessen will join professional dancers in telling the story. “It’s a good opportunity for me because it gives recognition to both the studio and myself,” said Victoria, 15, who has been in dance for eight years. “It is a great learning experience for all of us and teaches us about how professional dance works, what we need to do if we ever want to become a professional dancer,” said Evyann, also a Grade 10 student. “I think it is just important to know how everything works and how the big shows are. I think it is amazing,” said Baylie. Both Victoria and Evyann have been in major ballet shows before. “It is good to learn different ballets and each character has different parts and dance,” shared Victoria. “You have different dancers, so how things are run will be different as well.

For parents of children 2-9 years of age. Stress is a normal part of everyday life for children and adults. It helps to motivate us and adds a positive challenge to life. However, too much stress can be counter-productive and overwhelming. Why focus on children’s stress? Because too much stress: • Makes it more difficult for children to get along with others • Interferes with children’s ability to focus, think and ultimately learn • Has a profound effect on children’s physical, emotional and mental health By helping children learn positive coping strategies to deal with stress, you can help build their resiliency and prevent stress from escalating to distress, anxiety and meltdowns.

The automotive section of

Award winning Ford coupe has a long life With history supplied by Ron Pilger and Steve Staysko

Some old cars just never seem to lose their lustre and this 1938 Ford Standard Coupe might be a classic example. Off the Ford assembly line, the car was painted Washington blue (codeM1747). It was owned by a gentleman in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Known, is that this owner drove the car for 57,000 miles. At this point it was involved in a very minor collision on the Salter Street bridge in Winnipeg in 1955. Though the only damage was to the driver’s side rear fender, the car was put into long-term storage. The Ford sat in a garage for the next 14 years, until it was found and purchased by a medical doctor in St. Boniface. Dr Berard kept it for a short period of time and in 1969 he sold it to Mr. Brent Lambert, also a resident of Winnipeg. The general condition of the car at that time, could be described as excellent original except for the minor damage to the left rear fender. However, the original engine was not running and was in very poor condition. A wonderful, high-quality, restoration of the car was carried out between 1972 and the fall of 1975. The original engine block was replaced with a 95 horsepower, 239 cubic inch engine from a 1947 Ford. The engine is the prized 59 AB flathead version. The cast iron cylinder heads and ignition system are genuine 1947 Ford. The fan, generator, crankcase breather, carburetor and fuel pump are original 1938 components. The engine overhaul featured: new bearings, new lifters, new rings and a valve grind. The transmission is the original 1938 and the differential uses the high-speed 3.78-1 gears, which allows the car to cruise comfortably at most highway’s speed limits. The car was re-painted 1936 Light Fast maroon in color. When the all-components restoration was complete, the old Ford spent considerable time at car shows throughout Manitoba, winning top honours. On Sept. 13, 1979, with just 789 miles since the

AWARD WINNER, owned by Ron Pilger This 1938 Ford has won many awards over the years and is still in showroom condition, despite several trips across the prairies throughout its past.

restoration, the car passed a Manitoba Motor Vehicle Inspection without a demerit. In November 1981, Mr. Ian G. Purves bought the car and moved it to Calgary. The odometer showed a mere 950 miles had been put on the beautiful old car since restoration. On April 7, 1982, another Calgarian – Steve Staysko bought the old Ford from Ian. Mr. Staysko made good use of the reliable, prize-winning car, driving it for a number of years in and around Calgary. He even drove it from Calgary to Vancouver and back to display the car at the 1986 Expo transportation exposition at BC place. The car ran flawlessly on the trip out to Vancouver despite some very heavy rain. The only trouble was the inability of the original vacuum wipers inherent inability to keep up with the torrential liquid sunshine. On the trip home, the route taken was from Hope to Princeton and through the Keremeos to Penticton. Upon arrival in Penticton, Mr. Staysko said the tunes playing on the factory-origi-

nal AM radio were drowned out by an unusual noise coming from under the hood. A prompt inspection revealed the water pump pulley on the driver’s side had broken, leaving only half a pulley, but the fan belt was still intact. A replacement fan belt and water pump was shipped from Edmonton via Greyhound and two days later the owner replaced the parts in the Delta Hotel parking lot. The rest of the trip back to Calgary was uneventful and the old Ford purred along like a kitten. In 1988, I (Ron) became the newest in a string of owners of the trusty, timeless 38 Ford. I continue to treasure this very car. In those 30 years of his ownership, this vintage Ford has remained reliable and highly desirable. Almost no maintenance has been required on the coupe over these three decades–one coil, spark plug wires, condenser, new exhaust system and a carburetor overhaul. It remains ready to roll and ready to show. It always attracts a crowd ranging from old-timers who like to reminisce, middle-agers

who know a bit about cars of this vintage and youth who are eager to see under the hood. One common thread

to all of those who admire this vehicle – they cannot believe they’re staring at an eighty-year old car!

Free infant nutrition classes offered in Camrose

By Murray Green

Parents who have questions about feeding their growing baby have access to a free infant nutrition class offered by Alberta Health Services in Camrose. Led by a registered dietitian, the two hour

workshop highlights why babies need to start on iron-rich foods at six months, how to start introducing solid foods and why progressing to different food textures is important. Parents are encouraged to bring babies to the class, which

focuses on creating a positive feeding relationship. AHS dietitians answer questions and show parents how to make their own baby food using a variety of kitchen tools they may already have at home. Parents learn how to prepare vegetables,

fruit, meat and meat alternatives using a number of different tools, including hand mixers, food mills and food processors. The class ends with a taste test to compare store-bought baby foods and homemade baby foods for taste and texture.

Infant Nutrition will be offered in Camrose on Thursday, March 22 from 10 a.m. until noon at Camrose Public Health (5510-46 Avenue). For more information and to register to attend, call 780-679-2980.

Large grant keeps Camrose youth active By Lori Larsen

A $25,000 grant made to KidSport Camrose by Ivari Insurance will enable at least 85 children in the community to participate in organized sports this year who otherwise may not have been able. The grant was part of the Healthy Steps Program, designed to support organizations that help to teach children and young people skills that will empower them to develop healthy habits. These skills include healthy eating, health education and active lifestyles. Details about the program can be found on the Ivari website at http:// “On Dec. 13, 2016, we (KidSport Camrose) made a one-hour presentation to Ivari as part of the application process for the Healthy Steps Program grant,” said KidSport Camrose president Kristy Smith. The presentation outlined specifics on the Camrose chapter and how the community supports KidSport Camrose along with the types of children and youth KidSport assists. “At KidSport, we believe that no child/youth should be left on the sideline and that all should have the opportunity to experience the healthy, positive benefits of organized sports,” said Smith in describing KidSport Camrose mandate. “We aligned with the Healthy Step program in that we promote healthy mind and body, working in groups, cooperating, build-

ing confidence and socializing.” In 2017, KidSport Camrose was told they were successful in obtaining the grant. “They were not only impressed by our presentation, but the fact that people who donate to KidSport Camrose appreciate that every penny they give us goes to support a child/ youth in our community who would not otherwise be able to participate in sports.” Smith added that there are very little administration costs involved with KidSport Camrose and what there are, for example the cost of stamps, are covered by the funds raised during the Spring Bike Swap event. “We don’t make a lot of money during the Bike Swap. It is more about being able to provide bikes to children in our community who may otherwise not be able to get one.” Another part of the application process for the grant was to identify KidSport Camrose sources of funding, which Smith indicated includes winter raffle ticket sales and the Spring Bike Swap. “We are also funded through local donors and grants that we apply for and local events when needed,” said Smith. In the presentation to Ivari, KidSport Camrose shared the demographics of Camrose including how many children KidSport reaches out to and sup-

ports and who is eligible for KidSport funding. “Children who are age 18 and under are able to receive funding from us at $350 per child per year,” said Smith. “Eligible applicants include low income families, people on AISH (Assured Income for Severely Handicapped), unemployed or receiving income support through the provincial government. “We consider social and economic barriers facing families when determining eligibility.” Smith concluded with words of gratitude and excitement on KidSport

having been chosen to receive the grant. “We shared with them how the need has been going up every year and how we used to fund $500 a year, but had to move it down to $350 so we could help even more children.” For more information on KidSport Camrose, visit alberta/camrose or contact Kristy by telephone at 780781-1197. Smith reminds residents to save any bicycles you no longer need or no longer fit to bring to the KidSport Bike Swap held the first Saturday in April.

…and I, Wanda Law, would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who did so much for us during this difficult time. We would like to thank you for all the visits, numerous phone calls, extensive baking and cooking, the many beautiful flowers, donations to various charities and especially for attending Stewart’s memorial service. We would like to send a special thank you to Pastor Hunter for a lovely service, to organist Marlis Gunderson, bagpipe player Alex Oliver and Burgar Funeral Home for their compassionate support. We would also like to specially thank the doctors and staff of Viking Hospital for all the care Stewart received over the years and to the Viking Home Care Team, including Donna Tindell, for their dedication and care. Thank you to Pastor Sorenson for visiting Stewart and bringing him such comfort. In lieu of thank you cards, the family has made a donation to the Mazankowski Heart Institute. – Wanda, Debbie (Duane), Shelly (Murray), Ray (Sherri), Loren (Wendy), Chris (Sheila), Robbie (Candice) and families

Experience Bowie like never before By Murray Green

Since the early ‘80s, Syl Thompson has been paying tribute to David Bowie’s music with respect and pride. Thompson embraces Bowie’s musical style and persona. A Night of Bowie: The Definitive Bowie Experience will be held at the Bailey Theatre on Wednesday, March 21 at 7:30 p.m. David Bowie is one of music history’s most praised and successful artists, with a career that has spanned four decades. Bowie continuously sought to re-invent himself, while selling an estimated 140 million albums. His genre-defying journey through a vast array of musical styles, from rock to funk, dance to ballad, always kept fans guessing what he would do next. A Night Of Bowie is a celebration of his extensive list of memorable hits. Victoria musician Thompson and his band have been paying tribute to the musical works of David Bowie for more than three decades. This show is a multimedia extravaganza. Six highly respected musicians play each song as Bowie and his band performed them live. With VJPhoton providing a visual experience second to none, with photos and videos unique to each song. The look and feel of this concert replicates the Heathen/Reality Tour. Music spans the broad spectrum of Bowie’s hits from 1969’s Space Oddity to 2013’s Where Are We Now? The show is eerily close to hearing and seeing Bowie himself. Thompson’s own musical journey has been chock full of high points. In 1987, he opened for the Beach Boys at the Pacific Coliseum. Around this time, a manager of a Richmond nightclub heard him perform and remarked that Thompson had the look, moves and sound of Bowie and suggested he cover a few of Bowie’s songs. Before long, Thompson was dedicating a full set to the music of David Bowie. He renamed the band Major Tom and embarked on a year-long tour throughout North America. The draw of Bowie has continued to be strong for Thompson, though, and A Night of Bowie was created in 2013. Musicians

Deluxe top-floor condo

By Lori Larsen

Carefree living in a spacious condo with an incredible view of Jubilee Park is what awaits you in this top-floor condominium. A home like this is a rare and wonderful find and is the ideal place to retire or semi-retire. Floor-to-ceiling windows drench the condo with warm natural light and provide a front-row seat overlooking Jubilee Park. You can literally sit in your spacious living room and admire the seasonal colours in the comfort of your home, or step out onto one of two large balconies and enjoy the amazing views. A beautiful corner gas fireplace highlights your living room, warming you in the cooler months while air conditioning will keep you cool on warmer days. The main floor boasts a wide open concept, with plenty of space for a formal dining area and a breakfast nook with views all open to your wellappointed kitchen. The master suite is huge and features two large windows that also offer spectacular views. There is nothing like

waking up to the incredible sights of nature. The master suite also includes double closets, a very convenient laundry area and a large en suite with double vanities. A large second bedroom and guest bathroom complete the first floor. A huge upper loft offers plenty more room to suit your needs. It would make an ideal place for an art studio, taking advantage of all the natural light, or your very own home office or gym. Imagine working out while enjoying incredible views. Winter parking will never cause you grief because the condo also comes with your own private, heated garage space, with room for a little extra storage. A new furnace was recently installed and the building itself has a welcoming foyer, social rooms and a guest suite for extra overnight guests. Located at #402, 4615-50 Street, this condo offers carefree living at a price of $525,000. There will be an open house on Thursday, March 15 from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. For a personal viewing, contact Lyndsey Delwo at:
