The Annual Camrose & District Music Festival …was established in 1982. It was conceived as a way to promote music, speech arts and dance by encouraging amateurs to participate and perform in a friendly, workshop-like environment. Participants have an opportunity to hone their individual skills and experience further personal growth and excellence. The Lion’s Club in Camrose was involved right from the start, contributing the premiere trophy (and cash scholarship) of the festival, appropriately named the Lion’s Rose Bowl. This trophy continues to be awarded each year to the “most outstanding performance of the Festival” along with a $500 scholarship. In 1991, another major trophy was added – the Multi-Talent Award and $300 scholarship – to honour those few multi-faceted performers who give outstanding solo performances in three or more disciplines in the same year. This is awarded only if there is an eligible and worthy recipient. There are also many other trophies, scholarships and prizes awarded each year throughout the disciplines of piano, voice, musical theatre, dance, speech arts, band, instrumental, strings, choral and classroom music. The April 16 to 20 festival culminates in a Grand Concert on Monday, April 23 at the Jeanne & Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre.

Major to perform during Spring Rodeo By Murray Green


Murray Green, Camrose Booster Curtis Mandrusiak fires a ball down the middle of the lane for a strike at the Camrose Special Olympics bowling competition on March 23. Bowlers from several communities joined the local athletes in a competitive, but fun, day of bowling and celebration.

Charlie Major will be finding his way back to Camrose this spring. It is a road he is familiar with. Charlie has played at the Big Valley Jamboree in the summer five times, last in 2015. Major will be hitting the Camrose Regional Exhibition stage on Saturday, April 28 for a show during the annual Spring Classic Pro Rodeo (April 27 to 29). The dance and concert will start at 9:30 p.m. after the rodeo performance. His lyrics reflect the common working class people in a style such as Johnny Cougar (later John Mellencamp), Bruce Springsteen and other roots rock legends, but it is in the country music format that Charlie Major finds his home. He rose to the forefront of the Canadian music scene in the early to mid’90s that earned his first trip to Camrose. Charlie had a heyday on radio, as he became the first Canadian artist in history to score six BDS number one hits off of his debut album. Nine more chart-topping hits would follow, and he would crisscross the world headlining tours and connecting with his fans at fairs and festivals.

Charlie moved his family to Nashville. The head of the label told Charlie his sound needed to change and become more country. The marketing department thought his records might sell better in the US if he appeared on the album cover in a Stetson and added more fiddles and steel guitars to his edgy songs. What the label did not know was that even though Major might sell out concerts, he was not the type of guy who sells out his career. Charlie’s integrity to remain true to his fans, himself and his music was immovable and so he relinquished the dream of the big US record deal and returned to his homeland where he continues to be embraced. Over a decade later, Charlie is as successful as ever. He headlines his own tours and pairs up with the likes of ZZ Top in rock arenas full of fans from coast to coast. He has sold nearly half a million records in Canada alone and has won three Juno Awards and seven CCMAs, but you wouldn’t know it to meet him and he would not tell you. Truly a Canadian legend and one of the accomplished nice guys in the game, Charlie would not have it any other way.

Letters to the Editor A generous spirit

Some years ago, a 16-year-old I knew got her first job working part time at a grocery store. Applying for the job was an act of courage. She was shy, she was intimidated, she knew nothing of the world of work. She was scared for days before she gathered up her grit and did it. “Feel the fear and do it anyway” was more than just words for her. Her family’s income was below the poverty line. She was not working for spending money. Her income would help to pay the rent and buy groceries. When she got the job, she was ecstatic. It was a huge achievement. What excited her the most? She said, “Ever since I was 10 years old, I wanted to help a child in Africa.” She’d seen commercials about sending regular monthly donations to a child in Africa and exchanging letters with the child. “Now I can do that.” Like thousands of others who work in retail or service jobs, her income was unsteady – different shifts, some weeks less than others. She didn’t ever know how much her take-home pay would be in a given month. But she always sent the monthly donation. It was the first item she paid out of her paycheque. She was excited to show me the letters and photos she exchanged with “her girl” in an African village. I could see that her act of what seemed to me incredible generosity brought her immense joy. ***

In the 2015 World Happiness Report, in a chapter called “Neuroscience of Happiness,” Richard Davidson and Brianna Schuyler identified that generosity is one of four fundamental brain circuits that map with long-term well-being. They and other researchers have observed that the reward centres of the brain light up as strongly (or even more strongly) when we give as when we receive. Generosity is so powerful that, according to researchers David McClelland and Carol Kirshnit, just thinking about it “significantly increases the protective antibody salivary immunoglobulin A, a protein used by the immune system.” In other words, even thinking about being generous helps to strengthen our immune system. Davidson and Schuyler explained that one of the strongest predictors of well-being is the quality of our relationships. Generous, pro-social behaviour strengthens relationships across cultures. Generosity is associated with better health and longer life expectancy.

Kevin Sorenson, now you’ve made me angry. I’m used to your columns being nothing more than rants against the government. But your attack on Bill 71 is

shameful. We all know that farmers and hunters need guns. No one argues that. But a gun is a tool designed to kill. Any rational person agrees there need to be limits on gun ownership. As far as I can see, Bill 71 is a reasonable attempt to draw some limits. Of course at this time, those limits should be open to discussion, but you are not helping. Your view that anyone, even if he is mentally unstable with a history of violence, should be able to walk into a gun show and buy any firearm he wants without a background check is dangerously wrong. Your view that to require owners to register their guns will make them feel like criminals is just

laughable. I don’t feel like a criminal because I have to register my car. Do you really believe business owners feel like criminals because they have to register their businesses? Kevin, we citizens know politicians are just playing political games. We don’t like it and we don’t respect it, but we’ve learned to live with it. However, trying to score cheap political points on an important issue of public safety is irresponsible. You need to find something useful to occupy your time. I suggest you start working to get us Pharmacare. Rob Hill, Camrose

Radio, music legend Munro dies By Murray Green

The legendary CFCW morning man, Bev Munro, died at the age of 89 on April 4. The Canadian country radio community lost legendary Munro, who was the “voice” of CFCW for 30 years (1963-93). “He was the fabric of CFCW and made the station what it is today; we can only continue to carry on what Bev started,” said program director Jackie Rae Greening. Munro’s broadcast career started in the 1950s just 40 miles north of his hometown of Boissevain, Manitoba at CKX in Brandon playing the big country stars from that era. From there, he had stints

in Dauphin and Regina and in 1959, was named Mr. DJ USA, along with Ralph Emery, at WSM in Nashville, Tennessee. After CFCW became Canada’s first full-time country music station, they hired Bev Munro in 1963 because he “knew country music and its stars.” For the next 30 years, Albertans would wake up to the unique sound of Bev Munro leaving them stumped with the Mystery Artist Request Line and laughing with the Kneeslapper. Bev would retire in 2003, a year after being inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame. In addition to his stel-

lar on-air work, Munro played local dances and shows with his band, eventually earning a recording contract with Capitol Records. Many still remember his first hit song “Hello Operator”. Bev was also a talented songwriter, penning tunes for R. Harlan Smith, Chris Nielsen and Hank Smith. Bev would continue to tour with the Canadian Country Music Legends and host his famous traditional Tuesdays right up until his 89th birthday. He played at the Bailey Theatre in 2014. “His humour, his kindness, his talent will not be forgotten,” said Jackie Rae.


In The Book of Joy by the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu with Douglas Abrams, the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Tutu include Generosity as one of eight pillars of joy. They describe three kinds of generosity, two of which I hadn’t thought of before. There is the obvious form – material giving. Many spiritual traditions including giving money, or things money can buy, to others as part of a regular spiritual practice. And – whether or not it’s part of a spiritual practice – in this world of inequality and injustice, there are always worthwhile causes to support with generous material gifts. A second form, which I hadn’t thought of as generosity, was “giving freedom from fear.” Through giving our time and attention to others, we can provide protection, counsel or solace. Thousands of volunteers in our community can verify the joy and satisfaction that comes from service to others. The Dalai Lama and Archbishop Tutu ask, “Who needs your presence today? Do your children, your spouse, your parents, your colleagues, your friends or even the stranger on the street need your compassion and your caring? To whom can you reach out to support?” A third form of generosity they called “spiritual giving” – simply being a positive presence in the world. They said, “Seek to be an oasis of caring and concern as you live your life. Simply smiling at others as you walk down the street can make an enormous difference…” The idea of being the spirit of generosity is appealing! With all the health and happiness benefits of generosity, perhaps the most generous thing we can do for ourselves is to be generous to others. ***

As the new chair of the Senior’s Minister’s Service Awards committee I would like to invite constituents to nominate volunteers from our community who help our seniors live their lives to the fullest. The deadline for nominations is April 23. Additional information and a nomination booklet can be found at service-awards.html. Proud to announce that the Wetaskiwin and District Victims Services Society was approved for a grant totaling $450,000 for a three-year term. Thank you Cyrus Dustouri, board chair; Petra Pfeifer, executive director and their directors for the work you do to make life better for victims of crime. Another opportunity for diversifying our economy is a grant for tourism growth and innovation. If you have an idea or plan to increase knowledge of tourism assets, markets and build operator capacity to deliver memorable experiences. The first intake deadline is April 30. Full information is available at Culture and Tourism’s website I would like to use this update to list many of the financial benefits coming to our constituency. I know some will object to this spending. If constituents would prefer an end to building roads, bridges, water lines and sewage disposal we could end the Municipal Sustainability Initiative funding to towns, cities and counties. We could reduce our deficit by ending funding to agricultural societies, but we have decided not to stifle rural communities by focusing on debt, but rather invest to keep rural towns and counties vibrant and sustainable. Some worry about the debt being left to our grandkids, but they do not worry about leaving our grandkids a failing infrastructure (just ask residents of Wetaskiwin who face a crumbling road and water infrastructure due to 30 years of provincial neglect), crowded hospitals and long wait times, overcrowded classrooms and student debt, damaged environment (abandoned and orphaned oil wells), outdated economy (one resource reliance), unlivable wages (even when doing multiple jobs). We have a plan and it is already starting to work– deficits are down, our economy is diversifying and leading the country in growth. We will continue to believe and invest in the resiliency of Albertans. Some of these investments include $10 million to the County of Wetaskiwin for road upgrades and overlays; new school for Camrose Chester Ronning. Expansion of the green energy solar programs; a pilot transit transportation project for Camrose and surrounding areas; $467,000 for Montana First Nation youth and elder programs, housing and community events; $120,000 for Camrose County for inter-municipal development projects; $200,000 for Ponoka County for similar intermunicipal development projects; $13.4 million for fighting rural crime, officers, support staff, crown prosecutors; $11 million for more paramedics, some specifically for Camrose and Wetaskiwin; $17.5 million specifically to reduce energy costs of community rinks, arenas and swimming pools; $795,000 to 106 non-profit organizations for energy efficiency projects. Municipal Sustainable Initiative funding and Gas Tax Funds for Camrose ($4 million), Wetaskiwin ($2.6 million), Millet ($540,000), Bittern Lake ($210,000), Ferintosh ($211,000), Hay Lakes ($250,000), Argentia Beach ($93,000), Crystal Springs ($94,000), Grandview ($107,000), Ma-Me-O Beach ($107,000), Poplar Bay ($106,000), Camrose County ($2.5 million) and Wetaskiwin County ($2.7 million). Another investment we have made for Albertans has been the carbon levy rebate, which has been made available to individuals and families receiving lower incomes to help offset costs. Seniors, in particular, receive rebates to help cover rent increases made by apartment or lodge managers. This government is not taking back any of these rebates. The money is helping people/seniors pay their bills and making their life easier. Speaking of carbon levies do people realize Mr. Jason Kenney, as part of the Stephen Harper federal government put a 10 cent per litre gas tax on our gasoline over 10 years? Government guaranteed–summer is coming…just hope it is the same weekend you plan to go camping. Take care everyone. For more information check the Alberta Government web pages or call my offices to talk to Niel or Tony at either 780-672-0000 or 780-352-0241.

St. Pat’s Tournament of Books begins

Stephen Hawking 1942-2018

Few people are more internationally recognized than Stephen Hawking. It is interesting to ponder what made him famous. Was it his somewhat unique circumstances of living as a limitless mind in a body constrained by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis? Or was it the sheer excellence and impact Peter Berg, Science, of his research on cosmolUniversity of Alberta ogy? After all, who is not Augustana Campus fascinated by black holes, or the seemingly counterintuitive phenomena of relativity, or contemplating the beginning of our universe and whether there was a “time zero” where things emerged out of nothing? There was a beauty to Hawking defying the medical experts who predicted a short life for a remarkably gifted young man. Luckily, they were wrong and the world is all the richer for the mark that this physicist left on us. Without a doubt, Hawking has given a boost to cosmology and theoretical physics unlike anyone else in the last few decades. More importantly though, he has inspired laypersons of every ethnicity, creed, and religion (including atheists, of course) with an interest in cosmology. This happened in part due to his capacity to think beyond his own research field of cosmology and ask questions of great relevance to society. What could go wrong with artificial intelligence? Is genetic engineering safe? What are the risks of climate change? And, emerging from the pondering of these serious questions, should we prepare to leave the planet? In a way, only Einstein had the same influence on society as a physicist. Was Hawking as eloquent, wise, witty and intuitive as Einstein? Perhaps not but he became a celebrity nevertheless, whether he wanted to or not. It is all the more surprising that Hawking never received a Nobel prize. His work on black holes and space-time singularities broke new ground and his quest to understand the universe wholly through universal laws was as ambitious an idea as one ever finds, but not very humble. His two key contributions will have a lasting impression on physics and science: the physics of black holes and the Big Bang. Hawking showed that black holes possess a temperature and radiate energy at an extremely small rate which came as a surprise to many physicists who considered black holes as objects from which nothing can escape. In addition to “Hawking radiation”, he studied the conditions of the universe at very high density and temperature, developing so-called singularity theorems that support the Big Bang theory of the universe. Physicists are now trying to find the right quantum mechanical theory to extend Hawking’s work and bridge the gap to the beginning of time. Hawking was both extremely intelligent and very human, reflecting often on the meaning and purpose of life. A firm believer in facts and reason and a lifelong atheist, he reminded us to “look up at the stars and not down at your feet”, to look at the grander things at play and beyond our own small horizon. He also thought of brains as computers that stop functioning when we die, making life after death an untenable proposition. Whether one shares this view or not, we would certainly all agree with him in that “it would not be much of a universe if it wasn’t home to the people you love.”

St. Patrick Catholic School in Camrose opened the 2018 Tournament of Books to a host of cheers, as Grade 3 students ran the newest selection of books into the gymnasium. St. Patrick School initiated the Tournament of Books as a fun and exciting way to inspire students to continue the joy of reading. A total of 16 books were selected by vice principal and Grade 3 teacher Michelle Nanias, then purchased by the St. Patrick Parent Council. As the books are read to the classrooms throughout the

upcoming month, students will have an opportunity to vote on their favourites. At the end of the event, the tally of votes will be taken and the winning book will be announced. Last year’s winner was The Bear and the Piano, written by David Litchfield. To further promote the excitement of reading, Nanias invited author Litchfield to join St. Pats in a Skype interview. “He Skyped with us all the way from the U.K.,” said Nanias. “The students were able to prepare questions to ask him and he

showed them how the illustrations were done.” Aside from classroom teachers reading the books to the students, the school will be welcoming ‘Mystery Readers’ to come in and share their own take on reading the books. After the Tournament of Books is over, the books will take up permanent residence in the school library. The students and staff of St. Pats have found a another way of tweaking imagination and extending the arms of learning through the wonderful world of books.

Alberta Chambers president speaks to Camrose members By Lori Larsen

The president and CEO of the Alberta Chambers of Commerce Ken Kolby spoke to Camrose and District Chamber of Commerce members and guests during the April 4 general meeting and networking luncheon held at the Camrose Regional Exhibition. Kolby reported there are 125 community chambers in Alberta equating to one chamber in each provincial and federal riding. “That is where we get our advocacy power from, our community chambers. Those 125 chambers represent approximately 25,000 businesses in Alberta and if the demographics of the community chamber memberships are the same as a business in general, 95 per cent of those business will be small/medium sized businesses.” Kolby informed the members that the Alberta Chambers policy development involves all community chambers and consists of approximately 80 diverse policies on the books, which are provincial by nature but are developed out of issues that arise from local chambers. “Once adopted at the AGM and policy meeting it becomes official Alberta Chambers of Commerce policy and our office’s responsibility to advocate that policy to provincial and federal governments.” Kolby noted that the primary item the Alberta Chambers is focusing on, at this point, continues to be layering on of costs by all orders of government on business in this province. “We have seen a move towards an increase in cost in doing business in the province of Alberta.” He spoke about the concern over the lack of progress on pipelines and the demise of several pipelines and the issues between the government of Alberta and British Columbia. “When it comes to pipelines and railways the constitution of Canada is very clear, the government of Canada has the power to regulate and ensure those projects proceed.” He said the Alberta Chambers supports what the premier of Alberta is doing in order to nudge the government of Canada into action and that he felt within the next week or two the Alberta government would be introducing legislation to turn off the pipelines to BC. “Alberta is still standing but straining at trying to stand. Economies like Camrose tend to be very steady, a little bit busier in the boom times and a little bit slower in the slow times, but reasonably constant.” Kolby reminded attendees of some of the

changes that occurred over the past few years that have had impact on all small/medium business owners including minimum wage changes which will increase another $1.40 per hour in October. Kolby reported the results of the Minimum Wage Increase survey sent to the community chambers. “Within eight hours of sending out the survey to the community chambers we had 500 responses, the next day we were up to 1,200 finally when we cut it off there was 1,600 responses.” Some of the responses indicated layoffs and hours and benefit cut backs and raising of prices.

He also touched on the Labour Relations Code which came into affect in June of 2017 and Employment Standard changes which came into affect in January. “If you are not aware of the changes in the Employment Standards you need to inform yourself now because there are dramatic changes.” Kolby added. “The impact of all of these changes, may be minimal individually, but add up to major costs impact when they are layered one on top of each other. The one constant of all these item changes is the lack of meaningful consultation followed by rapid move-

lenging relationship with the government of Alberta. We have reasonable access to the government ministers,” he said noting at the annual political Action Day MLA Dinner to be held on April 11, the Premier of Alberta, Rachel Notley, will not be able to attend due to trade mission in New York and Toronto but the leaders of all three oppositions will speak during the day in half hour time slots. “We are pleased to see the government of Alberta appoint a parliamentary secretary for small business. And we will be advocating for that to be moved to a full cabinet position.”

and concentrate on business from a good point of view. “The capital investment tax credit and Alberta investors tax credit are being renewed and the digital investment tax credit is something that is new.” He explained that the Alberta Chambers was instrumental in advocating for the first two tax credits in order to diversify the province of Alberta. “Of concern is the on going deficit. This budget highlights about another $9 billion in operating deficit.” He said the pre-budget submission of the Alberta Chambers called for, at least, an operating spending freeze, not a three per cent increase. “The capital spending over the next five years will be dropping by a billion dollars over what it was in last year’s budget. What we are seeing overall is a decrease in capital spending and an increase in operating spending.” Noting the accumulated Alberta debt by 2023 will be around $96 billion, Kolby said in perspective that the government of Canada projected a deficit for this year of $18 billion dollars compared to the $9 billion deficit the Alberta government projected for Alberta alone.

Sharon Anderson, Camrose and District Chamber of Commerce executive director, inquired as to what main policies on the books affect rural Alberta going forward. Kolby indicated there are a lot of the policies, even though they are not specifically agriculture based, and provided three examples of policy that would affect rural Alberta. Bob Prestage inquired as to what the Canadian Chamber is doing to encourage more participation in the Chamber from rural Canada. “The community chambers have taken it upon themselves to convince ag producers that they are in fact businesses and they should be part of the Chamber of Commerce. That is part of the perception that we have to overcome and try to get our ag producers as part of the chamber because it is a very effective way for them to advocate on behalf of their sectors. Hopefully we can improve on doing that. “The Chamber is there advocating on behalf of the people on main street who are in fact part of the social fabric of this country.”

Giving his all on and off the ice By Lori Larsen

Jacob Kendall, born and raised in Camrose, is a young man with tenacity and vision both on the ice, as one of the Camrose Kodiaks, and off the ice as a pillar of his community. Jacob was this year’s recipient of the Camrose Police Service (CPS) Citizenship Award, given to a Kodiak player that demonstrates the six characteristics of the acronym ASPIRE (accountability, stewardship, professionalism, integrity, respect and excellence.) And by all accounts, he was most deserving. Jacob had no idea he had received the CPS citizenship award but was very happy to be honoured. “I didn’t really expect to get any award,” he said humbly. “Even if you don’t get one, you still do what you do, but it is a bonus.” The citizenship award is bestowed upon a player who exemplifies good values within the team and goes above and beyond to contribute to the good reputation of the team, in service to the community. “To be recognized for that citizenship award is awesome and makes you just want to keep getting involved and doing good for the community,” said Jacob. He began his hockey career at the young age of five and, now, at the still somewhat young age of 18, has grown, not only with the game, but with a community that he so proudly serves. “I started playing because of my older brother, Tanner. I looked up to him when I was young and I still look up to him.” Influence came from other directions as well. Jacob’s father, Chad, played for the Augustana Vikings and both of his parents encouraged him to play the game. In speaking with Jacob, one soon realizes he not only has deep roots to his community, but has very strong ties to his family as well. “My younger brother, Sawyer (16) is very involved, as an athlete, with the Special Olympics,” he smiled. “And my little sister Emmersyn (4) comes out to as many of my games as she can, wearing her purple Kodiak’s Jersey.” Playing for the Camrose Kodiaks means lots of family are able to come out and enjoy watching this amazing young man and when asked what it meant to him, he said, with conviction, “It’s important to keep family close.” The game itself has taught Jacob even more life lessons which he credits to the dedicated coaching staff.

“From my experience it (playing hockey and being part of a team) has taught me to be punctual and how to work as a team.” Jacob added that learning to be part of a team means you may not like everyone but you have to respect everyone, and that this attitude rolls over into the work life as well. “It builds a certain maturity, makes you grow up quickly and learn to deal with certain situations that you may not be comfortable with. That is something our coaching staff preaches, to try to make yourself uncomfortable. They tell us ‘Be comfortable being uncomfortable’, because it forces you to do new things that are going to help you later in life.”

waterboy. “He is always so happy at our games and it rubs off on us. We may be feeling bad but when we see him it cheers us up.” Having spent time in his mother’s special education classes, Jacob has developed a connection that he graciously shares with not only his brother, Sawyer, but with other children, and admits it may be something he considers as a career in the future. With the Kodiak season now over, Jacob is not resting on his laurels. He is busy being part of the incoming training camps, has a full time summer job with the City of Camrose recreation facilities department and still finds time to give back to his community.

100 Season’s Pass

$ Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster Camrose Kodiaks player Jacob Kendall, seated, and fellow player Cale Chalifoux assisted in the spring camp on March 30 at the Encana Arena.

Off the ice and as part of the Kodiak team, Jacob, participates in Cub Club, which has the players conducting school visits every week. “There might be another me in that crowd,” said Jacob. “Someone who would like to play for the Kodiaks.” So Jacob makes every effort to befriend the young hopefuls and share with them the vision of doing what he feels fortunate to have done. “Growing up we always had players billeted and staying at our house and I looked up to them. Now, being in their shoes, I see how important it is to share with younger children.” Despite a busy training, practice and play schedule the Kodiak players are still seen throughout the community, giving back through volunteer work and enjoy spending leisure time with the team

“It is huge to give back. My parents, the Kodiaks and my community have all given me a chance so it is great to be able to give back. I think it is important to help each other and create a strong connection with everyone in the community.” Jacob hopes to be able to come back and play for the Kodiaks again next season and is grateful for all he has learned and the great experiences he gained with the team. In the future, Jacob wants to continue with post secondary education, as for his hockey career, he smiled saying “We’ll have to see how it goes. The Camrose Booster wishes to extend our condolences to all the families and friends affected by the April 6 Humboldt bus accident.

Representatives on behalf of the Urban Chickens/Hens Volunteer Committee presented a report proposing a pilot program for the keeping of urban chickens/ hens within the City of Camrose, for information to council, during the committee of whole meeting on March 20. Speaking on behalf of the Urban Chickens/Hens volunteer committee, Dawn Lawson and Bill McPhail presented information gathered as a result of a request by council on Oct. 2, 2017. Lawson began by informing council of the work the group has completed to date. “We have reviewed bylaws from other locations that have vibrant urban hens programs and found a well-established format and lots of available information,” said Lawson. “We located educators who are willing to offer training courses and contacted established hen programs so we can hear their experiences.” She said the group has also mapped out local and virtual resources available for hen owners including the Alberta provincial government requirements. “We are requesting a oneyear pilot project of 10 to 15 permit locations (within Camrose) with four to six chickens per permit. We expect minimal cost to the City and wish to work close with city council to prepare a streamlined and efficient program in which cost and risk are primarily borne by the permit holders.” In an effort to reduce cost to the City, Lawson suggested the group would act as volunteer bylaw liaison and would inspect permit sites and offer knowledge and support to owners, including recommending that all permit applications include an education requirement using the Alberta provincial governments training material. “We put together a draft bylaw and would also include a neighbour notification letter which is a simple statement to adjoining neighbours of the intent to have urban chickens,” said Lawson. McPhail addressed some of the common myths surrounding urban chickens. Regarding the myth that chickens are dirty and smell, McPhail said that in fact chickens are very clean animals and the smell comes from the waste which, if managed properly, would not be an issue. As far as the issue of noise, McPhail said, “Roosters are in fact very noisy, but roosters are not required for egg production and are not allowed to be kept in Camrose as part of this project.” He also said that not a lot of land is required to keep hens, citing the approximate footprint would be the same as a four-by-eight sheet of plywood and that chickens have been kept in urban settings for years. With regards to the myth

about urban chickens attracting rodents and predators, McPhail said a properly constructed chicken facility, of hardwood and metal, would guard against rodents and predators. Lawson further addressed the concern of biosecurity. “Biosecurity centres around prevention, reduction and elimination of the introduction of the spread of disease within the flock. Many hatcheries are promoting vaccinations programs for their birds so birds that are coming in are going to be healthy and vaccinated and commercial producers have biosecurity that protect their flocks.” As for the concern of disease transmitted to humans, Lawson said the bacteria

intervene sooner, rather than wait for a complaint to arise. The bylaw officer would be available for complaints or on a needs-based basis.” City manager Malcolm Boyd noted that any enforcement would have to be done through the City and that the association (Urban Chicken/ Hens Volunteer Committee) would not have the ability to enforce any bylaw. Lawson did indicate if a complaint should occur, the group would have some involvement in the disbursement of the flock. Mayor Norm Mayer inquired as to how the limited number of participants in the pilot project (10 to 15 as indicated) would be determined,

surrounding urban chickens would not be that much different than those that exist in the everyday environment. The same precautions, such as hand washing and food handling, would need to be taken. “It’s the Avian flu that makes people twitchy about backyard flocks. But it is helpful to know there has never been a bird to human flu virus on the North American continent. Many of the risks with urban hens are no greater then having a pet dog, cat, parrot or reptile.”

should there be numerous applications. Lawson said it would likely be done on a first-come first-served basis, but the group would connect with other interested parties to help educate them. Councillor Agnes Hoveland asked about the criteria for those entering the pilot program if there is a standard design for coops, who will monitor the program and what the evaluative piece at the end of the year would look like. McPhail replied, “There wouldn’t be a standard design for the coops as long as they fall within the specification laid out by the Alberta government. As for judging on how the program went at the end of the year, we would see how many complaints there were, if any.” Lawson spoke to the criteria for applicants, stating that much of it is already set out in the resources the group has provided including Alberta Chicken Producers Backyard Hens Resources, Alberta Government Guide for Small Flock Owners along with bylaw examples from other municipalities. Councillor David Ofrim said, “I think it would be helpful for council to hear the other side of the story, the myth side or hear from people who have concerns with this.” Council will continue further discussion on the matter.

Council questions

Councillor Max Lindstrand began by saying he has been a supporter of concept of urban chickens for a number of years and appreciated the groups efforts on supplying council with some specifics of what might work. He then inquired as to how noncompliance in the keeping of urban chickens would be dealt with and how the group envisioned the City issuing permits for the people who would be the initial chicken owners in the City. McPhail indicated there would be no reason why people of the group could not be the issuers of permits, adding it would eliminate one of the stresses on the City. Lawson added, “The primary concern from council in September (last year) regarding the cost was that the bylaw officer would be overtaxed. But by having regular meetings and a lot of this information available on bylaws, we would be able to

encourages lock it or lose it By Lori Larsen

With the hope of spring, residents are going out to their garden sheds for items or considering a good spring cleaning of the garage. Camrose Police Service wants to remind residents to be sure to lock up their property when unattended, with the fourth Eyes On Camrose initiative, Lock it or Lose it. “Every person who owns property needs to implement the simple crime prevention technique of locking their property,” advised Camrose Police Service crime prevention/ community relations Constable Kelly Bauer. “The police all too frequently respond to calls regarding stolen property that could have been prevented if the property had been secured. “We continually receive calls regarding vehicles which had been rummaged through overnight and items such as money, CDs, sunglasses, GPS units have gone missing. In the vast majority of cases, the vehicle was left unlocked.” Bauer went on to say that last week, the police received a complaint from a resident that her purse had been stolen from her vehicle. “The vehicle was left unlocked overnight while parked in front of their

residence,” he explained, adding that a few days later, the police received another call regarding a laptop computer that had been stolen overnight from an unlocked vehicle. Vehicles are not the only thing that are susceptible to theft. Any type of property left unlocked or unattended can become the target of an easy crime. “A youth reported that his bicycle had been stolen from the bike rack at the swimming pool,” said Bauer. “And yes, the bike was left unlocked. Unlocked garages or sheds are frequently entered resulting in owners missing tools, sporting equipment and other valuables.” Attached garages pose an even greater risk when suspects are able to enter them and then possibly gain access directly to the home through another unlocked door. “Recently a suspect entered a home through the unlocked garage and stole jackets from the rear closet.” Const. Bauer recalled another incident of theft, closer to home, that could have been avoided. “An interesting investigation occurred a few years ago when a homeowner had his truck stolen from inside his attached garage. Police were able to track

the suspect’s footprints in the fresh snow. The suspect checked several locked garages (including my own), but never made any attempts to gain entry. He continued for two blocks checking one locked garage door after another until he came across the unlocked garage. Once inside the attached garage, he then entered the house where he found the keys for the pickup truck that was parked inside the garage.” Given an opportunity, theft will occur. “The most difficult part of that theft for the suspect was walking two blocks until he found an easy victim.” Locking your property takes a matter of seconds and is a simple way to protect what is rightfully yours. “The majority of thefts are crimes of opportunity where the criminal will chose the easy theft over the theft that is more difficult. Don’t allow yourself to become an easy victim of property crime. Lock it or Lose it.” Eyes on Camrose is a community awareness program launched by the Camrose Police Service that is taking hold in Camrose. Citizens recognize that everyone can play a part in keeping our community safe.

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster Camrose Police Service crime prevention/community relations Constable Kelly Bauer demonstrates the importance of Lock it or Lose it on a shed.

Residents are encouraged to get involved in the prevention of crime in Camrose through Citizens on Patrol, an initiative that has volunteers offering an extra set of eyes and ears while conducting patrols in the community, CPS Facebook page and Twitter account are an easy way for citizens to stay informed and Curb

Swim Club voices concerns on pool revitalization project By Lori Larsen

The Camrose Swim Club voiced some concerns about the proposed revitalization project for the Camrose Aquatic Centre during the April 2 Committee of Whole meeting. Representatives from the club, including executive member Gail Cunningham-Flemming, head coach Shane Gau and secretary Cathie McKenzie, spoke to council specifically about the potential for a complete shutdown of the pool in May 2018 as well as the proposed pool depth of the new lane facility. C u n n i n g h a m - F le mming began by explaining the Camrose Swim Club has been in Camrose for over 45 years, has over 90 swimmers, 60 families, five coaches and numerous volunteers, adding that the club is one of the most dominant swim clubs in the province. She noted that with an only six-lane pool, the club had to reduce their cap in order to manage the swimmers in the club. “It has been a struggle some days with space in the lanes. “This club does more than develop athletes. It develops leadership skills, sportsmanship, empathy, compassion, inclusion mentorship of older swimmers to younger swimmers).” She spoke of how the

club was grateful for the time granted to them for training, but reiterated how in 2002, the pool was deemed unsanctionable by Swim Alberta and FINA (International Swimming Federation) due to not meeting the minimum required pool depths. “We rent lane space in Wetaskiwin between two and four times a year to try and train our swimmers, at our swimmers’ cost.” C u n n i n g h a m - F le mming indicated how thankful the club was to be included in the feasibility study and design phase of the proposed pool project. “We are really excited about what a new pool can bring to our club and our community as well.” Head coach Shane Gau spoke further about the specific concerns the swim club has with the pool revitalization project. “One of the biggest concerns for me is shutting our pool down and what that would look like for closure.” Gau recalled a discussion he had with City of Camrose community services general manager Ryan Poole and city manager Malcolm Boyd about the three options for closing the pool during renovations. “To me, we cannot be without a pool for more than one season. We realize we probably have to

give up the pool for at least one year, but we would not want to be out of our pool for two years. We would start losing the momentum that we gained over the years with swimmers having to train at other facilities.” Gau explained that losing the pool for the 2018 season would be an even bigger concern because registration has already taken place and contracts are in place for coaches. “We are hoping in the scenarios you chose that we will be able to go ahead with our swim season for this summer with the anticipation of possibly losing our pool for next year and getting it back the following year.” The second concern Gau spoke of was regarding the depth of the pool. “It is really important that we maintain that turn end of 1.2 metres to be able to hold future competitive meets at our pool, attract possibly a college team here and for national competition.” Gau also inquired as to the direction administration would take regarding the club’s responsibility for raising of funds for the competitive dive blocks and lane ropes. “We have already done some fundraising to secure some funds and apply for some grants for a state-

of-the-art score clock that would go at the end of the pool.” Mayor Norm Mayer replied to the concern of the pool shutdown. “As far as the 2018 season is concerned, I don’t think there are any plans of shutting that down at this stage. Certainly, I would hope, that we are not looking at more than a year closure, but we do have some financial hurdles that we have to respond to. As far as the depth, the plan is 1.2 metres,” said Mayer, referring to community services general manager Ryan Poole. Poole spoke further to the concerns brought forward by the swim club representatives. “The dive blocks and the lane ropes are included in the tender.” However, Poole indicated the City would welcome any fundraising the club would like to do towards these items, indicating that they could easily obtain a separate price for the items. City manager Boyd inquired with Gau as to whether or not he (Gau) felt there would be a risk that five years down the road 1.2 metres may not be sanctioned. Gau responded that conversations he had with the technical coordinator of Swim Alberta indicated

that 1.2 metres would be safe for future. Poole added that the decision to go with 1.2 metres versus two metres was so the City could accommodate all users of the facility. Councillor PJ Stasko asked if the score clock was included in the tender. Poole responded, “From our point of view, the score clock was not part of the tender. All the wiring is going to be put into place in a couple locations so the swim club can chose a place where it is convenient for them.” Gau explained the score clock they envision for the pool will not only display times and scores, but will be able to facilitate some advertising and will consist of a high-end video and monitoring setup that will enable swimmers to video their practices and then watch themselves on the display monitors. Mayer inquired as to the potential cost of the score clock system and was told by Gau the system would likely cost in the neighbourhood of $80,000. Tenders on the Aquatic Centre Renovation and Expansion project closed on Tuesday, April 10.

Retiring music professor honoured in Edmonton Submitted

On Sunday, Feb. 26, the Edmonton Branch of the Alberta Registered Music Teachers’ Association (ARTMA) honoured Milton Schlosser with its 2017 Exceptional Service Award. The award was presented at the branch’s annual Membership Appreciation event. Retiring on March 31 after 33 years at University of Alberta Augustana Campus, Milton has been a member of this important music educators’ organization for over three decades. In a speech made by ARMTA member Nancy Watt, Milton’s various contributions to the organization and larger community were recounted. What follows is an excerpt from the presentation. “Like many of you here today, I have attend-

ed countless concerts, lectures, and music festivals that Milton was a part of and saw firsthand, how multi-faceted his role as a musician and music educator was–from performer, to composer, to recording artist, to teacher, to adjudicator, to mentor, to author, to lecturer, to ambassador, to researcher, just to name a few. But I also witnessed how fearlessly Milton not just accepted these roles, but took them on wholeheartedly. And he gave generously of his knowledge, of his kindness and, above all, of his time.” Milton had a rigorous performing schedule that took him as far away as France, Ireland, Hawaii and China, and yet he was always willing to do a benefit concert when asked and did so many times for ARMTA, to raise funds or

awareness or to assist students or teachers in some way. Milton also had a huge academic commitment. His research in areas such as neuroscience, contemplative studies and sport psychology and its relationship with music and performance are thought-provoking and will continue to have practical applications for teachers and students for years to come. Milton was always willing to share this knowledge through lectures to ARMTA teachers, at music conferences, at master classes, and workshops around the province. The ARMTA, Edmonton branch, is a vibrant professional organization offering many varied and exciting programs to its 150 members. The organization provides collegial

support, continuing education, recitals, student programs, yearly music conferences, and much more. For many years, the branch and its provincial parent organization ARMTA spon-

sored the Piano Camp held at the Augustana Campus as part of MusiCamrose and for which Milton was a head piano instructor in the early 1990s.

Remember when a group of guys would entertain people simply by singing a cappella wandering around the neighbourhood? Well, sorry but I don’t. But you can hear the sounds of the past with an evening of a cappella in a barbershop style with the Western Hospitality Singers beginning at 8 p.m. at the Bailey Theatre on Saturday, April 14. Barbershop music is a style of a cappella singing in four parts carried out by large choruses and quartets. This unaccompanied four-part close harmony/ harmonizing music form is famous for its ringing chords in which an overtone is produced sounding like a fifth note. Each of the four parts in this music has its own role. Generally in a quartet, the lead sings the melody, the tenor harmonizes above the melody, the bass sings the lowest harmonizing notes and the baritone sings between the lead and the bass to complete the chords. The history of this musical expression has its roots in England and came to North America where it was influenced by the African-American culture. Around the 1870s, many quartets became a common sight at shaving parlors and barbershops throughout the southern and midwestern American states, hence the name Barbershop. With the arrival of the Vaudeville era and its traveling shows, the newly-constructed Bailey Theatre would become a venue for barbershop quartets and choruses to tromp the boards of the historic stage. The Western Hospitality Singers will be making their second appearance on the Bailey stage. They first appeared in Camrose as participants in the

Bailey Barbershop Bonanza in June 2012. Their coming appearance will feature a full-length presentation complete with a large chorus of 30 to 35 gentlemen, in addition to five or more quartets. One segment of the evening’s presentation will encompass a cowboy theme with its humor and antics of the old west, and a second, more formal segment will be devoted to popular songs with Canadian flavours that audiences will find engaging. Appropriate renditions by quartets will be sprinkled throughout each segment. Quartets to watch for are Time and a Half, Blend

the Rules, Lovin’ Tuneful, What You Get and Quadimodo. The Western Hospitality Singers are made up of guys from Calgary and surrounding areas. They were organized in 1986 and are one of the 52 chartered choruses in The Evergreen District, a district of the International Barbershop Harmony Society. Those years have been filled with a variety of activities that have taken them to many contests and events in Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest, as well as Utah, California, Ohio, Missouri, Tennessee and now Camrose.

Two more former Kodiaks sign with MacEwan By Murray Green and Jefferson Hagen

The Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference twotime (straight) champion MacEwan Griffins just got a little better on and off the ice. MacEwan hockey signed former Camrose Kodiaks’ players Ryan Hartman and Nic Correale for the 2018-19 ACAC season. There are now eight former Kodiaks on the Griffins’ roster as they join Cam Gotaas, Brett Njaa, Matt Waseylenko, Tyler Morrison, Stefan Danielson and Nick Harder on the team. The six former Kodiaks helped the MacEwan Griffins men’s hockey team win a second-straight championship last month. MacEwan head coach Michael Ringrose added to his winning formula with wingers Hartman and Correale for the 2018-19 season. “Players that come out of that program understand what it takes to be successful and win,” said Ringrose, during the announcement in Edmonton. “If you look at their history, it’s one that has certainly had its successes and continues to produce competitive teams.” Camrose general manager and head coach Boris Rybalka installs lots of character to his players. “If you look at the type of student-athlete that has

come into this program and had success–you talk about (graduating players) Ryan Benn and Christopher Wray and Taylor Mulder–these guys fit that same mold,” said Ringrose. “They’re the complete package–can play both ends of the rink and be relied upon and have the competitiveness that is necessary to be successful in this league. “We’re certainly really excited to add them. They’ll be very valuable pieces of the puzzle moving forward.” Hartman played three seasons with the Kodiaks and was a point-a-game player (33 in 33 games) in his final junior season, which concluded last month. He added three points in six playoff games. “Ryan’s a hard-working, dedicated, 200-foot player who can play in any situation,” said Ringrose. “He has a very good shot and certainly can play a physical brand of hockey, while contributing on the scoresheet as well. He’s a huge addition for us. He played a little bit on the point on power play for them and was a huge part of their successes.” Correale spent the past year-and-a-half with the Kodiaks after playing more than three seasons with the Spruce Grove Saints. He finished his AJHL career with 202 points including 45 in 56 games this past season. He tied for the Kodiaks’ play-

off scoring lead with seven points in seven games. “I coached him during my time in Spruce Grove,” noted Ringrose, who was previously behind the bench of the Saints before coming to MacEwan. “I was fortunate enough to win championships with him (2014 and 2015). He’s the type of player that just seems to do all the little

details right,” he said. “The intangibles of his game are good. He’s more of a playmaker, while Hartman would be more of a shooter, but both contribute in their own ways offensively and will be impact guys for us moving forward.” They should fit seamlessly into a culture on the Griffins that values high

character, academics and a team-first mentality. “I think they’re both great young men, too,” said Ringrose. “I’ve had the opportunity to chat with them on a number of occasions. They’re good people that fit into any dressing room because they have the character you’re looking for and need to be a part of a successful team.”

Most teams, hockey parents and coaches across Canada expressed its deepest condolences to the Broncos, the SJHL, the victims and their families. The AJHL asked to provide strength to those families undergoing these unspeakable circumstances. Coach Blaine Gusdal of the Augustana Vikings played and coached in Saskatchewan. Coach and general manager Boris Rybalka of the Camrose Kodiaks also coached in Lloydminster. Stephen Wack, 21, of St. Albert, one of the 15 who died, played for the Kodiaks in 2014-15 (eight assists in 29 games) and 2015-16 (five assists in 19 games) before moving on to the Whitecourt Wolverines and Humboldt.

Hockey world shocked by Humboldt bus accident Hockey people across Canada are mourning the loss of 15 players, volunteers or staff of the Humboldt Broncos hockey team after a highway accident on April 6. The bus carrying the 29 team members collided at the intersection of Highway 35 and Highway 335 near Tisdale with a tractor-trailer unit hauling peat moss. The team was on its way to play a playoff game against the Nipawin Hawks in the SJHK semifinals. “We are all connected through this great game. We are all family. Our thoughts are with the Humboldt Broncos, the SJHL and to everyone impacted by the accident,” said Ryan Bartoshyk, AJHL commissioner.

Richard Norman Jacobsen September 4, 1953 ~ March 21, 2018 Richard ‘Rick’ Norman Jacobsen passed away in Mesa, Arizona on March 21, 2018 at the age 64 years. With his family by his side, Rick succumbed to a hard-fought battle with legionella pneumonia. Rick was born on September 4, 1953 in Camrose, AB to his proud parents Norman and Mary Jacobsen. Norman and Mary, along with Rick’s grandparents Carl and Anna Jacobsen, lived on a farm near New Norway, AB where he grew up with his two younger brothers Ken and Dale. Rick worked very hard on the farm. He played hockey and baseball throughout his childhood and enjoyed many great times with his brothers and close friends. At the age of 16 years, Rick decided to set off to begin his working life. Working away from the farm in Edmonton and in the Arctic, Rick would always return to where his heart was – the farm. On December 18, 1976, after a persistent courtship on his part, he married the love of his life, Karen Jans. They spent the first four years of their married life in Drayton Valley, AB where he worked as an oilfield operator. During this time, Rick and Karen became proud parents of their children Julie Ann and Ryan Richard. In 1980, Rick moved his family back to New Norway where he began his dream job, farming alongside his father and brother Ken, which he and Ken continued until his passing. He remained in the energy industry, operating the local oil and gas fields with Ken until the fall of 2012. Rick was an extremely hard-working and dedicated man; he was committed to the two jobs for most of his life. He also knew the importance of enjoying life; spending time with his friends and family was extremely valued by him. He truly lived his life to the very fullest. In his younger years, Rick enjoyed hunting and, throughout his life, camping with family and friends. He loved many sports – watching and playing ball, hockey, curling and golf. He also found great pride and joy in being there for his children and grandchildren during their sporting endeavors. In 2012, they purchased another home at the Venture Out Park in Mesa, Az. He cherished his time down south where he was blessed to meet many amazing friends, filling his winters with playing golf, activities in the park and “happy hours” in the sunshine. Rick loved his three grandchildren with all his heart and treasured every moment shared with them. He was such a great and silly ‘Papa’. Rick will be lovingly remembered by his wife Karen; daughter Julie (Warren) Boychuk; son Ryan (Jaimie Pastuck with children Sam and Katie Strahl); grandchildren Brady, Riley and Emily Boychuk;  parents Norman and Mary; brothers Ken (Vera) and Dale (Darlene); Uncle Knud; special cousins, nieces and nephews;  and so many kind and loving friends and neighbors. Rick will be greatly missed by everyone who had the honour of knowing such a wonderful man.  A funeral service will be held on Saturday, April 14, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. from CityLights Church, Camrose with Pastor MaryAnn Pastuck officiating. Inurnment will follow in the New Norway Cemetery. Memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to the Stollery Children’s Hospital or to the charity of one’s choice.

Pastor Lawrence Edwards Soveran May 27, 1937 ~ April 2, 2018 Pastor Larry (Lawrence Edwards Soveran) was born in Assiniboia, Saskatchewan on May 27, 1937, the third son of John and Mary Soveran. At that time, his family lived near Wood Mountain before moving to Regina when he was about seven. After high school, he joined the Canadian Air Force, training in Ontario and later serving in Europe, where he worked as a radar technician. Then he came home to Saskatchewan to attend university, graduating from the U of S and, later, from the Lutheran Seminary in Saskatoon. In July 1963, he married Marilylle Pattison of Withrow, Alberta. He served as pastor in Weldon, Saskatchewan; Selkirk, Manitoba; Innisfail, Alberta; and Bashaw, Alberta; until retiring by Little Beaver Lake at Ferintosh in 2002. He was predeceased by his parents; son Kalman; brother Jim; sister-in-law Joanne; and brother-in-law Dave Lord. He is survived by his wife Marilylle; daughter Marjorie; brothers Ernie (Elaine), Robert and Doug (Kristin); sisters Doreen Lord and Sylvia Wilde [Larry); brothers-in-law Fred (Donna), Will (Marion) and Ken (Shirley) Pattison; sister-in-law Anne Gray (Ernie); and many nieces and nephews. He loved his work as pastor and the many dear people from all those communities.

Rapid Response wins award in Saskatoon By Murray Green

The Camrose Fire Department does more than put out fires. Sometimes its 1948 International Rapid Response half-ton truck even starts fires in the auto industry. Two shows, three awards. You have to like the results that the Rapid Response truck has already had this year. In Great Falls, Montana this spring, the truck not only won the high performance racing category, they took home the Kid’s Pick award for being a favourite amongst the youngsters in Montana. Then firefighter Allan Majeski and his driving/ showing crew entered the Saskatoon Draggins Rod and Custom Car Club annual show on Easter weekend. In Saskatoon, Rapid Response was named the first place choice in the quarter-mile racing class. “Even though they didn’t have races, we were picked as the best in the class. We enjoy entering the truck shows and I always like it when we win. They had 250 entries (not all in our class), so it is great to win. It is actually a bigger event than the World of Wheels in Edmonton,” said Allan. The Draggins Rod and Custom Car Show is the longest running club-operated car show in Canada. The first show was held in 1961 at the old Saskatoon arena with attendance of approximately 1,500 visitors and around 30 cars to view. It has grown to be one of the most loved and anticipated events in Saskatoon. Celebrating their 50th Annual Car Show in 2010, over 300 vehicles were on display and attendance continued to be in the 18,000 to 20,000 mark. “We are waiting for the snow to melt to get it back on the track. We are planning to go to Nisku, Hanna, Stettler and Castrol Raceway in Edmonton this year,” Allan added. “When the Forestburg track opens, not sure when, we would like to go out there because it is a close track for us,” said Allan. In 2007, about 10 Camrose Fire Department fire-


Submitted Camrose Fire Department volunteers and firefighters built a 1948 International truck that could respond fast on the track.

fighters got together to reinvent a 1948 International KB1 pickup, a former farm truck. “Originally, we were just going to do burnouts at our own Camrose Cruisers 100-footer, but then it kind of turned into a quartermile drag truck. We had to get a full race chassis built for it with help from Ken Storms of Stormy’s Street Rods,” explained Allan. “In the quarter mile, it’ll run 132 miles an hour (212 km) in 9.7 seconds.” The International Harvester K and KB Series are trucks that were produced by International Harvester, the first being the K introduced in mid-1940. In total, there were 42 models, 142 different wheelbase lengths and load ratings ranging from 1/2-ton to 90,000 lbs. The International trucks are best known for their durability, prewar design in a postwar era and low price. The followup to the K, the KB, was introduced in 1947, with the characteristic difference being a widened lower grill appearing like wings. Between 1947 and 1949, 122,000 KB-1 and KB-2 trucks were sold.

For the KB-1 thru KB-5, chrome wings were added on the sides of the grille, a wrap-around chrome piece on the front hood, a hood ornament and chrome lettering indicating the model designation below the International nameplate on each side of the hood. For the KB-6 and larger trucks, the only external changes were that the Triple Diamond badge was moved to the top of the grille chrome-work, and the model designations were added to the hoodside chrome trim. Allan schedules the truck’s appearances at events, show and shines and drag races across the country and several volunteers help keep the truck in top condition. “We upgraded the motor to a 900-horsepower alcohol engine. We went from 650-horses to over 900,” said Allan. The vehicle has won awards for Best Engineered and Best Competition at the Calgary World of Wheels. “If we’re showing it or racing it, the truck still draws a big crowd,” said Allan. Having attended area races in the capac-

ity of emergency fire services (fire suppression) in the event of an accident, a group of about 10 CFD firefighters got together to reinvent the 1948 International KB1 pickup, a former farm truck, so they could have a truck of their own to race. The truck was originally purchased by a local

Camrose farmer and turned into a competitive tractorpulling truck. Eventually, it became Rapid Response, a quarter-mile drag racer. Last year, the dragster went to Las Vegas. The team was able to run a quarter mile in 9.55 seconds, beating their personal best with crew chief Ken Storms at the wheel.

Government fails to address rural crime By Kevin Sorenson, MP, Battle River-Crowfoot

On Wednesday, March 28, I participated in the debate on Motion 167, which was introduced by my colleague and fellow Albertan MP Shannon Stubbs. This private member’s motion was prompted by the increasing rate of rural crime throughout this country, particularly in Alberta, and the Liberal government’s failure to recognize this growing problem and seek solutions to de-escalate this trend. In 2015, for the first time in over a decade, the police reported an increase in crime and further increases occurred in 2016. Alberta led in rural crime with a spike of 10 per cent and unprecedented levels of property crime. While the Alberta Rural Crime Task Force, of which I am a member of, has been working with provincial and municipal representatives, citizens groups, law enforcement and victims to identify concrete actions to be taken to address these increases, we also need the federal government to implement some measures. Action and added measures however cannot be executed without first fully understanding the extent of the problem and underlying causes. Motion 167 therefore calls upon the federal government to instruct the Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security “to undertake a study on rural crime in Canada and consider factors, including but not limited to: (i) current rural crime rates and trends, (ii) existing RCMP and other policing resources and policies in rural, remote, and Indigenous communities, particularly in relation to population density, policing geographic area, and staff shortages, (iii) current partnerships with provincial, municipal, and Indigenous police forces, (iv) possible recommendations to improve rural crime prevention and to curb emerging crime rates, and that the Committee report its findings to the House within six months of the adoption of this motion.” Unique challenges in rural policing such as small detachments serving vast geographic areas, lack of cellphone coverage, poor road conditions, modest street lighting in smaller communities, isolated residences and limited resources, make it extremely difficult for police to help prevent and respond to crime. While it may be challenging to address many of these issues, it certainly isn’t insurmountable and as at start, we must ensure the RCMP are fully staffed. Nationally, more than one in 10 RCMP positions is vacant and as of April 2017, there were 230 positions unfilled in Alberta; this in its self is a crime. While the Liberal government and in particular, the minister of public safety, initiates the strong push to increase RCMP resources, they should also vote in favour of our motion to convene a comprehensive study of the problem. Until the Liberals are willing to take this issue seriously, many of my constituents and those of my colleagues may continue to live in fear. We once took great pride in living in peaceful rural communities and surroundings where unlocked doors and opened gates were the norm. Today however, that idyllic picture has been damaged and we must fight hard to get it back.

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 colour are some of the basics readers want to know. Without them, your ad may be overlooked.

Steer Clear of Abbreviations

Okay, so you want to include all the important basics. Don’t use strange abbreviations because our ads are designed to spell all the important details. Besides, you are not paying by the line, but by the word, so there is really no need to abbreviate.

Be Honest

Exaggerating your item’s finer points may bring in a lot of responses, but a buyer who’s misled won’t appreciate it and will take his business somewhere else.

State Your Price

The cost of an item is one of the most important concerns of want ad readers. Ads showing prices are ones which get results. Giving a price also serves to “weed out” those buyers not in your price range.

Be Accessible

Including a telephone number or address puts you in touch with potential buyers. Be sure to state the hours you can be reached: a caller who can’t get through the first time often won’t call again.

Don’t hesitate to call us with any questions or problems you may have regarding advertising. Our professionally trained sales staff know the ropes, and would be happy to pass their know-how on to you. That’s why we’re here to help you get the results you deserve.

Great season for minor hockey alumni By Murray Green

After last season, eight Camrose bantam triple-A Red Wings were drafted into the Western Hockey League. Five of these Red Wings made the decision to play with several other drafted players from surrounding hockey associations on the Northern Alberta Xtreme Elite 15 Hockey Team (NAX E15). The team went on to win the league title. It not only enhanced development opportunities, but led to a banner year for both Ty Marcinkowski and Ty Yoder. Both Marcinkowski and Yoder played together since peewee. The NAX E15 team participated in the Canadian Sport School Hockey League (CSSHL) and played against other Western Canadian Elite 15 Academy teams. The NAX E15 team finished their regular season undefeated and entered playoffs as one of the top ranked midget teams in Canada. Marcinkowski finished the regular season leading the league in several categories including goals against average (GAA), wins, shutouts and was second in save percentage. Marcinkowski also set a league record with the lowest GAA (1.49) ever recorded within the Elite 15 division. He remained perfect through league, tournament and exhibition play with an incredible 29-0 record. Ty Yoder led the league in goals, points and picked up a point in every regular season game he played in. He won the league MVP award. The NAX team finished the season with a 53-1 record, only losing their third last game of the season to Rink Academy from Manitoba. NAX E15 eventually met Rink in the championship final and defeated them 4-2 to claim the league title. Both players will now focus on training further during the off season, preparing themselves for fall tryout camps.
