For some graduating students in Camrose and surrounding area, the cost of dressing for the momentous occasion is a monumental obstacle. In years past, some young students, eager for one of the biggest days of their lives, have chosen not to attend their grad ceremony due to not being able to afford a suitable dress for their dream day. That, however, should no longer be the case. Ladies (in particular) now have at least two awesome opportunities to get perfect grad attire absolutely free. The Princess Project, founded by Camrose Outreach School Principal Laura Swanson, supplies and fits graduation dresses (as well as a small number of guys’ suits) to grads in Camrose and area who might not otherwise be able to afford the sometimes expensive cost of dressing for this milestone moment. A similar initiative, based in Millet, called the Prom Project is underway courtesy of business owner Angela Pauls. Angela reports that she has an impressive number of extraordinary graduation gowns for gals which are offered to qualifying grads-to-be at zero charge. In recent weeks, she has already assisted more than a dozen 2018 graduating students from the Camrose trading area. For more information, email Angela at Laura can be reached at

Letters to the Editor Green onion cakes legacy and what’s yours?

green onion cakes?”

Being at a stage in life when I think about “legacy,” the story caught my eye. Ten years ago, a man in Edmonton thought he was going to die. Of all the things that might have been on his mind, the question bothering him the most was this: “What happens if people don’t know how to make ***

The man was Siu To, aged 78. Among his lifetime achievements, he’s the man who introduced green onion cakes to Edmonton. He’s made it his calling to spread their popularity and to teach others how to make them. If you’ve ever attended one of Edmonton’s festivals, you’ve probably been exposed to green onion cakes. They’re kind of like a pancake (though the batter is usually a little heavier) and filled with–you guessed it–green onions. Okay, if you’ve never had one, it may not sound appealing. But trust me, they can be addictive. There are places I go for the sole purpose of ordering green onion cakes, and if they come with something else, that’s a side benefit, but not the main event. Green onion cake aficionados even have arguments about whether green onion cakes should be sort of puffy or if they’re really supposed to be flat and dense. This matters–at least to hardcore green onion cake folks. ***

When Siu To first got sick and was concerned that nobody would know how to make green onion cakes, he shared his knowledge with anyone who would listen. He handed out his recipe to newspapers and would travel a ways to teach people. “I hoped everyone could learn to make green onion cakes at home,” he said. Happily, Siu To survived the illness and is still teaching people how to make green onion cakes. “For me, this is very important,” he said. ***

The story got me thinking in two directions–food and legacy. First, I wondered, “Is there any food in my life that I care enough about to want to teach others how to make, to have as part of my legacy?” My immediate thought was, “No.” Growing up, ours was not a “foodie” family. Getting meals cranked out with enough protein, starch, vitamins and minerals to keep us healthy was just one more thing our mom managed, while riding herd on four kids and working day and night to help get a fledgling business off the ground. (That would be The Camrose Booster). Food preparation was maintenance, not a joy. But then, I did think of a few special foods I treasure enough to want to share with others. For example, it pleases me enormously that once a year, my daughter, granddaughter and I make shortbread cookies with a recipe that was passed down from my grandmother to my mother to me, and now to my daughter and granddaughter–a five-generation recipe. I think it’s the multiplegeneration aspect that brings me so much pleasure, more than the shortbread itself. Still, it’s in “food legacy” terrain. Then there was our mother’s legendary lemon meringue pie–the absolute best I’ve ever tasted. I always thought that too was a recipe passed down from my grandmother, but last year I learned the recipe actually came from the cornstarch box! Not sure that counts as legacy. Also, I’ve never actually made lemon meringue pie. I just enjoyed eating it.

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

I wish to take a moment to send a public and personal thank you to people who volunteer. We at the Camrose Association for Community Living (CAFCL) are blessed to have a variety of volunteers. We have nine board members who faithfully and competently govern our organization. We have program volunteers who provide service and support to the individuals in our programs. We have fundraising volunteers who organize and work at events to raise the dollars we need to offer the programs we do. Last year 57 volunteers generously gave us 987 hours of their time. The list of names is long, too long to print in this column. But, each one is valued and provides a much needed service to not only CAFCL but to our community. To each of CAFCL’s volunteers, I salute you and applaud you for sharing your time and talent. To every citizen who vol-

unteers somewhere, I say thank you. You are looking after your community, taking responsibility and doing your part in making this world a better place. Esther McDonald CAFCL, CEO Camrose Deplorable road

I was raised in the Camrose area and I come back about six times annually to see friends and family. In my rounds of coffee time with many people, I have heard over and over about how the City of Camrose “mis spends” their tax money. The biggest bone of contention, however, is the road situation. The residential streets have long been in constant disrepair and it seems the City ignores all but those surrounding City Hall and businesses downtown. I have even heard that if a street is repaired, all those living on that street have to pay extra taxes for it! I can’t believe that one as it sounds too outrageous. Apparently $6.7 million is being spent on a bridge that may have lasted longer if the expensive Ring Road had been used by the hundreds of trucks that preferred the shorter route through town. They are now using the ring road as intended, so the City must find a way to keep it that way when the bridge is completed. Many expressed the opinion that the bridge was unnecessary as two large culverts would have done just as well. That is if money is

so scarce other roads go unattended. All this leads me to the main reason for my letter. I have travelled the Aberhart Highway often because it leads from where I stay right into downtown Camrose. All is not bad until you reach the City limits. From there to the Ring Road you are in constant danger of breaking your back, or your teeth, not to mention blowing a tire or losing parts of your vehicle! This road is in abominable condition. I have seen it being spot repaired over and over. Nothing works. Not to mention the eyesore garbage along the road to the dump. This road is used by many trucks going to the City dump (which is in a location that defies all reason, but that’s another story) continually destroying the road, not to mention trucks from the gravel pit to the south. Instead of paving it though, thousands of dollars are spent grading it especially just before BVJ. I have asked why this road is not paved and I was told that the County road (Aberhart) is not paved, so what’s the point? The County says the City needs to go first. The City of Camrose should be ashamed. Maureen Hanak, Kelowna (formerly of Camrose)


Until I read the story about Siu To, it never occurred to me to think of “food” as legacy. My concept of legacy leaned more in the direction of accomplishments or contributions or memories that others might cherish. I’ve expanded my concept. Let the record show: if I’ve done nothing else in this lifetime, I’ve passed along a recipe for shortbread cookies. That is now officially part of my legacy. ***

So, if you were to name a food you’d be happy to consider as part of your legacy, what would it be? Send me a note to I’ll happily reply within one business day, and (if you give me permission) I’ll share what you say in a future Reflections column.


Murray Green, Camrose Booster Sebastien D’Eschambeault, left, of The Brick Camrose received a Paul Harris Fellow award from Don Rebus of Camrose on behalf of the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International for his long contribution to the club. The local Rotary members collect wheelchairs and other walking aids and send them to Mexico to assist that country with equipment for those who need it. The Brick stored the wheelchairs at its location until a truck picked them up and delivered them to the airport for further transportation.

Can you help me with an out-of-town real estate transaction?


Absolutely, though I may be best known as a leader for buying and selling residential properties, my scope of training and my interest extends through to commercial real estate, as well as the listing and selling of area farms and acreages. I have successfully finalized deals for retiring farmers and for urban dwellers eager for country living. If you’re shopping for a property outside of Camrose, I can guide you on potential pitfalls, including those related to water and sewer. I am very current on realistic property values. I have an extensive small business background. Allow my work history to go to bat for you if you are considering a career move into business. I can provide invaluable guidance on the right storefront or structure for your business dream.


In the world of travel, how do Canadians differ?


Canadians plan far less and far later. Most cultures strategically plan for vacations two to three years in advance. Canadians tend to wait for vacation sell-offs, which often never materialize. We also tend to be less progressive in booking side-excursions and end up being unable to find space in unique cultural opportunities in far-off lands. As an example, Australians and New Zealanders are already planning their Fall Foliage Tours to our Maritimes for 2019 or 2020. Asians begin booking airfare 330 days in advance, the same day that flight times will be released. Europeans are expert travel planners, spending many hours researching potential side trips to complement their main travel. These travellers, for example, will arrive at their cruise departure city one or two days early, to experience that community’s unique offerings. Planning early will be less stressful, allow time for appropriate vaccines and other precautions, and allow you to maximize your vacation travel. It also builds the anticipation of the trip! Above all, count on the immeasurable advantage that a professional agent can offer. We know travel!

Q. A:

Thanks to independent research, we have an excellent understanding of how many people read our print version of The Booster each week. Circulation Verification Council, head-quartered in St. Louis, Missouri, annually conduct a survey in this market to determine this readership number, to determine our popularity in the marketplace and to get accurate data on consumer spending. CVC, in their audit report for July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016, reported that 81.6 percent of all print copies of the 13,000 Boosters which are printed weekly are routinely read. Furthermore, 1.8 adults per household, on average, read The Booster every week. What does this mean? It means that on any given week, 19,094 readers enjoy everything The Booster has to offer. How many local Facebook views do you get each week? Not near this many – that’s a certainty! It might also be interesting for you to know that 47 percent of Booster readers are male and 53 percent are female. 63 percent of our readers are between the ages of 35 and 64 years of age. 82 percent of our readers, always or sometimes, read the flyers we deliver. The Camrose Booster is also on our website, posted on our Facebook page and on the Camrose Now! app. Answer provided by:

Is on-line banking safe?


With the right pre-cautions, using online banking will be as safe as in-branch or ATM banking. While we urge you to record your passwords, be mindful to store this documentation in a highly secure place. Don’t share your passwords with anyone or perform online banking transactions from a computer accessible by the general public. We recommend that you disable automatic password-save features on your devices. Install, use and make certain your quality anti-virus program is always up-to-date for maximum security. Always exit financial transaction sites using the Log-out feature. Watch for fraudulent emails. Credible emails will not ask for passwords, personal information, or log-in information. Use increased security authentication opportunities when available. Open and check your monthly statements to verify all charges or withdrawals are legitimate. Vision Credit Union goes to great lengths and expense to ensure online banking is safe for the company and members, alike. We now offer a program that can lock your account automatically when a known fraudster is trying to access your account. We also have extraordinary ways to determine if your account is being accessed from out-of-country.

How can I reduce spring allergy symptoms?


While most of us can hardly wait for this extended winter to be gone, many who suffer from spring allergies have a hint of dread of what may lie ahead. Warm spring breezes also bring airborne pollen and mold spores. Pets, also eager for spring, tend to bring pollen indoors on their fur and feet. Damp and rainy weather combine and lead to a high concentration of mould. If itchy eyes, ears, nose and mouth is a regular pattern for you in the spring, you will recognize that being outdoors may be best left to rainy or cloudy days when pollen in the air is less likely. Your best defense from spring allergies is to keep your doors and windows closed, use allergy filters on your air conditioning unit, wash your clothes more frequently and taking a shower after you’ve been exposed to pollen and mould spores can be used as “good medicine.” We recommend that you avoid doing yard work or exercising outdoors on days when pollen counts are high. My professional pharmacy team can talk to you about highly effective treatment options. Answer provided by:

How common is hearing loss?


Having a hearing loss today is not as uncommon as one may believe. The following statistics from the Better Hearing Institute illustrate this gap between those with hearing losses and those who seek care. - 1 in 4 workers exposed to high levels of noise will develop a hearing loss - only 13% of general practitioners screen for hearing loss. - 3 in every 10 people over age 60 have a hearing loss - 1 in every 6 people between ages 41 to 59 has a hearing loss. - 1 in every 14 Generation X’ers (29-40) already has a hearing loss. - 1.4 million children (under 18) have hearing problems - Only 1 in 5 people who could benefit from a hearing aid actually wear one. - 9 out of 10 hearing aid users report improvements in their quality of life. Clearly, these statistics are startling. This shows that many people are choosing to go without the benefits of solutions for their hearing loss. Most often, this can be due to confusion over what benefit hearing aids can provide, and which type of hearing aid is best for a specific person’s loss. Call today for a consultation.

Community comes together to support Humboldt victims Murray Green, Camrose Booster Covenant Health St. Mary’s Hospital Camrose staff members Brier O’Neill, Jen Schneider, Melissa Berg and other volunteers held a bake sale on April 12 to raise funds and pass on thoughts and prayers to all who have been affected by the Humboldt tragedy, including the families, emergency responders, and health care providers. Deacon Doug Tien offered spiritual support and reflection and Nemo’s Novelties donated the cupcakes.

By Lori Larsen

On Thursday, April 12, Camrose and area residents joined together to meet, talk and support one another in the shadow of the April 6 tragic bus accident just outside of Tisdale, SK, that claimed the lives of 16 people including members of the Humboldt Broncos Hockey Club. The Camrose Kodiaks and the Camrose Primary Care Network (PCN) hosted the evening. Hospice Society of Camrose and District program coordinator Bill Harder opened the evening with words of encouragement to all attending and conducted a minute of silence in memory of those who lost their lives. At the end of the minute, Harder rang a bell three times symbolizing the acknowledgement of the breaking of rules. “There is an unwritten cultural rule that our children outlive us, we don’t bury our young. The rule gets broken numerous times by illness, injury or accident and when this happens, we feel a communal sense of outrage that a rule was broken, this shouldn’t have happened. So the ringing of the bell is when we say to the world this breaks us, hurts us as individuals and as a people when our young die.” At the end of the minute, the only sound resonating from a room filled with people, was the soft chime of the bell. “When the sound of the bell vibrates away, we are left with something more important than just the sorrow and the sadness, we are left with resilience,” said Harder. “As community, we hold each other up and find voice for our sadness and also our celebration.” Former Kodiak player Stephen Wack was one of the 16 people who died in the accident. Wack played for the Kodiaks in 201415 and 2015-16. His career continued with the Whitecourt Wolverines and then went on to Humboldt to play for the Broncos.

touching words about Wack. “Stephen had a huge heart. He was the most humble guy. He never had a bad word to say about anyone and never complained. He would do anything for anyone and he was really proud of his brother Justin who is going to miss him a lot.” Ron Pilger also shared wonderful memories of Wack. “Stephen was a gentleman. He was just a good guy and I wanted everyone to know that.” Ron also spoke of fond memories of the two seasons Stephen stayed with the family. “Stephen was a fellow who really lived by the rules, he was serious about his hockey career.” On a final note, Ron related a story of a little boy putting hockey sticks outside of a door so the boys could play hockey

with the angels in heaven. “I think Stephen would be right there, teaching the angels in heaven how to play the game.” Local businesses sponsored a free barbecue for people attending the gathering. Donations for the evening totaled just over $2,300 and were accepted via the Hospice Society of Camrose and District, for enhanced grief and bereavement programming and support of the children, adolescents and young adults. In a show of support that is reaching around the world, people are leaving hockey sticks and other symbolic items outside their homes to memorialize this heartbreaking loss.

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster Camrose Kodiaks coach Boris Rybalka spoke of the impact the Humboldt tragedy has had on himself and his family during a community memorial gathering with close to 300 people in attendance, held on April 12 at the Camrose Recreation Centre, Bear Cave.

Camrose Kodiak coach Boris Rybalka shared comments with guests. He spoke about the conversation he had with Stephen’s father who said it is important to remember the positives. Rybalka said, “I am most proud of this country and this world; the strength that everybody has shown. There is not a person here that didn’t understand what happened Friday night.” Rybalka spoke of his time as a player for the Humboldt team, recalling how supportive the community of Humboldt was then and still are and that as a strong community, they will get through this tragedy. Rybalka finished with words of wisdom for all. “Don’t ever take things for granted in life. Appreciate everybody every day

and the simple things. But mostly, just be better. Stephen would be very proud of this (the evening of gathering) today. The greatness of this sport and of life has brought a whole community, a whole nation, a whole world together.” Mayor Norm Mayer offered words of encouragement and appreciation for the people who came out to grieve and celebrate as a community. Mayer also offered words of thanks to Rybalka and his wife for continuing to give back to the community through the Kodiaks. Wack’s host billet family the Pilgers: Marnie, Ron, Landon and Mackenzie were also present to share in Stephen’s memory. (Christie was at college and was unable to make the evening). Landon shared

Hospice Roadshow comes to Camrose By Lori Larsen

Caregivers, patients, family members, volunteers and health care professionals are invited to attend the annual Alberta Hospice Palliative Care Association (AHPCA) Roadshow, hosted by Hospice Society of Camrose and District, held on April 26 from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Norsemen Inn. This year’s theme, “A Mindful Finale: Spirituality and Ritual at End-ofLife” is aimed at helping people fill their toolboxes with practical ideas to help them through this difficult time in life. This year’s AHPCA Roadshow’s includes a full day of educational workshops developed in response to an identified need for palliative care training throughout Alberta. Hospice Society of Camrose and District program coordinator Bill Harder commented, “I went to my first roadshow last year at Vegreville. It was a lovely coming together of people from a number of sectors. There were nurses, LPNs chaplains, people from other hospice societies, board members and volunteers.” Harder spoke of the benefit the Roadshow has for attendees. “In addition to the nourishment you get from whatever the theme is that year, and it changes from year to year, you have that opportunity to connect with peers and people who have a common interest, overall, in this palliative world. This world of diagnoses that says you might not die right a way but you are not going to get cured from this. “We come together to learn about how we can support our teens who get stage four cancer, our 40-somethings who get a diagnosis of ALS and our 80-somethings where life is just running out for them.” Harder remarked that the Roadshow not only provides the community with tools regarding the event, but allows for valuable networking during breaks, before and after the presentations on what work is

being done in various communities. “To toot Camrose’s horn, we are way ahead of the curve for a city of only 18,000. We are doing things here that can set the bar for our province.” Harder explained that in Camrose the Hospice Society is involved in four different communities of practice, meeting three or four times a year, that an agency within Camrose has

facilitated to bring together all the voices that might be interested in a particular topic matter, such as youth mental health. “We (Hospice Society of Camrose and District) go to the palliative end-of-life care community of practice and there are probably 20 people who sit around that table, including representatives from the Camrose Primary Care Network, St. Mary’s Hospital and Beth-

any. It gives us a chance, three or four times a year, to hear what each other is doing about that particular community practice. We have four of these communities of practice that we regularly attend and the Roadshow becomes another version of that,” said Harder, noting it is another opportunity to hear what is happening within each sector, how resources can be interwoven without dou-

bling up and how they can build on each other. The Roadshow will attract approximately 90 registrants from mostly the central zones of Alberta. Camrose Hospice hosted the Roadshow in 2011. Presenters for this year’s Roadshow are Darrin Parkin and Blair Collins. Parkin is currently the Spiritual Care co-ordinator at Rosedale Hospice and Sage Centre of Hospice Calgary. He has provided spiritual care for 25 years on campuses, in parish ministry, in hospice and in prisons. Collins has worked for over 30 years in a variety of non-profit settings. He focuses on dealing with grief and loss and encouraging people to create rituals appropriate to time and context of celebrations. “When it comes to rituals and grief, there is a lot to explore,” said Collins. “Rituals help us honour loved ones and make anniversaries and special dates easier. There are no rules! The meaning of what you do is more important than the activity itself.” To register for the workshop, visit https:// or telephone 403-473-7845. AHPCA is a provincial non-profit registered charity which engages in actions and strategies that result in comprehensive and equitable end-of-life care for all Albertans. For more information, go to “All Albertans have the right to quality end-of-life care,” said Jennifer Elliott, executive director of AHPCA. “Education about palliative care issues is fundamental to that. AHPCA brings education and support to Albertans from all walks of life.” The AHPCA Roadshow is touring Alberta this spring with stops in Camrose, Fairview, Lethbridge, Strathmore and Athabasca.

Best selling author simulcast By Lori Larsen

T he R esu r rec tion Lutheran Brethren Church, Women of Rez, invites residents to join them in a simulcast of New York Times best-selling author and Bible teacher Priscilla Shirer on April 28 at the Resurrection Lutheran Brethren Church’s new building located at 5601 Enevold Drive. The day will begin at 8:30 a.m. followed by the simulcast promptly at 9 a.m. The day includes lunch and will end by 4:30 p.m. Priscilla Shirer is a wife and mom first, but put a Bible in her hand and a message in her heart, and you’ll see why thousands meet God in powerful, personal ways at her live events. With a Master’s Degree in Biblical studies from Dallas Theological Seminary, Shirer brings the depths of Scripture to life. She is the author of best-selling Bible studies, including the Armor of God, Gideon and Jonah, as well as the author of many books, including Fervent and the New York Times best-seller The Resolution for Women. She and her husband, Jerry, lead Going Beyond Ministries. Christian recording artist Anthony Evans will be leading worship via the simulcast as well. Evans has voiced the gospel with such a melodic, thought-provoking style that he has emerged as one of Christian music’s premiere male vocalists, songwriters and worship leaders. His time in Los Angeles with NBC’s hit show The Voice led him to think more progressively about his music–without compromising his faith and message. With seven solo projects, multiple music videos and inspirational literary collaborations with beloved pastor and international speaker Dr. Tony Evans. Anthony has vibrated the doors of the church and ventured beyond. “In 2017, 14 women from three churches attended this event here in Camrose,” said church member Iona Brager. “The consensus was that we need to do more of this kind of thing together. The Resurrection church women are excited to invite women from across our community to join them this year for the Priscilla Shirer simulcast. It brings women together from all walks of life for a day of Biblical teaching, prayer, and worship.” To register for the simulcast, visit

Elder abuse awareness event By Lori Larsen

My three-year-old was gliding down the toboggan hill, while I watched anxiously. We were visiting a friend’s local hill in Edmonton and I was finding the experience unnerving. Straw bales at the bottom provided a nice barricade– at least until my little one veered to the left towards a metal bench, a sign post and orange hazard cones marking a big ice patch.(I’m not kidding!) I started calling to him to slow down, use his hands! At the last moment, he rolled off the toboggan and came to a stop. I heaved a sigh of relief. Has it always been so stressful to watch tobogganing, or is it just because they are my children? I wondered how often my mother had watched us anxiously and called out warnings. Are the hills icier? Steeper? Are the toboggans faster? Some of the other children were wearing helmets, which wasn’t common when I was young. At the end of the day, I found myself just relieved that we were heading home without brain injuries (and a mental note to myself that I need to pick up some winter helmets before we toboggan again). Dr. Charles Tator’s 2008 book, Catastrophic Injuries in Sport and Recreation, noted that tobogganing was the fourth most risky sport for serious injuries, behind only diving, snowmobiling and parachuting. Head injuries were frequent among tobogganers and most could have been prevented by the use of helmets. Last year, the town of Jasper banned sledding on two popular local hills. Tobogganing is banned on city property in Hamilton and punishable by a $125 fine at 14 hills around Toronto. I don’t want to see this activity banned as it is a simple, inexpensive way for people to enjoy the outdoors, but perhaps there needs to be more education about how to reduce the risks (wear helmets, face forward and feet first) before this activity goes the way of the lawn dart. Lawn darts with metal tips used to be a common camping game, but have been banned in the U.S. for many years. In the late 1970s, they were allowed to be sold again as long as they weren’t marketed as a toy. After a child’s death in 1987, the parents lobbied for a total ban and the sale of all lawn darts was banned. In Canada, lawn darts resulted in at least 55 serious injuries and they were banned in 1989. Secondhand lawn darts are also illegal. And then there are car seats. Children used to roll around in the back of station wagons and now must be buckled into five-point harnesses before heading out on the road, with specific rules on what kind of seat to use for your child’s height and weight. Child seats began to be manufactured in the 1930s, but it wasn’t for the safety of the child–it was to act as a booster for the child to see out the window and make it easier for their parents to see them! It wasn’t until the 1960s that car seats were created with the intention of protecting children. Baby walkers with wheels have been banned in Canada since 2004. Ignoring the ban can lead to fines up to $100,000 or six months in jail! Luckily for my nerves, the tobogganing season is drawing to a close. Signs have been up signaling that the Jubilee Park and Grand Park Drive hills are closed for the season, and interest is waning for Nadon hill beside our house. At least, I thought tobogganing season was drawing to a close, until snow swirled around me just the other day. Apparently this was the coldest first week of April in 16 years in this area. Meanwhile, there are little, hopeful signs of the relief of spring ahead. Tiny, leafy green snapdragon and pansy seedlings have worked their way out of the soil in my windowsill, reminding me to turn my cheek to the sun and be patient for the warmth to come.

Developing strong bonds By Lori Larsen

Every fall, Camrose sees a new group of young men, ages 16 to 21, strap on skates for the Camrose Kodiaks. Many are away from home for the first time, an experience that can be daunting for any young person. Enter into the dressing room Camrose Police Service Constable Matt Rolfe. To players who are familiar with him, he is a well-respected and well-liked part of the Kodiak family. To those who do not know him, he is a soonto-be amazing mentor.

understanding with them about the consequences of drinking and driving, the ‘zero’ drug tolerance rule and their behaviour off the ice. “I tell them that just because they are on this highly-sought-after hockey club doesn’t mean they get to walk around Camrose with a free pass.” Matt’s no nonsense attitude combined with his approachable and sincere nature, helps create relationships with the players based on mutual trust and respect. “I always ask them to think twice before

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster Camrose Police Service Constable Matt Rolfe has been mentoring Kodiak players for 14 years.

Matt has been part of the hockey world from a very young age, officiating the game for 27 years. “I was an on-ice official, through high school and university. I also played junior hockey and when I was 20 and the age restriction came up, and I was done (playing).” In the summer of 2003, Matt was hired by Camrose Police Service. He moved to Camrose in 2004 after completing his six-month training with Edmonton Police Service. Having officiated hockey for as many years as he had, the transition to the Kodiak organization as an on-ice official was easy. “I’ve been on ice with teams from across the world and could see the standards with this team were higher and I wanted to be a part of that. I feel very fortunate that they allowed me to be a part of this club.” In the fall of 2004, the beginning of the Kodiak season, Matt took it upon himself to begin conducting talks with the 25 players, a tradition now 14 years strong. He welcomes them to Camrose, but more importantly, bridges an

doing something inappropriate off the ice. There is a good chance I will be on duty and my hopes are, because of our relationship, they wouldn’t want to disappoint me.” At the same time, Matt gives every player his personal cell phone number and tells them they have 24/7 access to him. “These ‘kids’ are 16 to 20 years old and, for a lot of them, it is the first time moving away from home. Their parents have entrusted the organization to take care of them.” As a liaison with the police service and just a regular guy who is always available to the players, Matt is an extension of the Kodiaks commitment in ensuring the well-being of the players. Beyond his annual fall introduction and officiating junior hockey, which he relinquished three years ago in order to take an official title with the Kodiaks as a scout, Matt offers the players a firsthand glimpse into the honourable career of policing. “Halfway through the year, I do a recruiting spiel to them suggesting policing as a possible career choice

should a hockey career not pan out. I remind them that the decisions they make now could potentially affect their career path down the road.” Recognizing the expectations placed on these young men, three years ago Matt approached the police chief with the suggestion of creating and subsequently presenting one player every year with a special award, the now Camrose Police Service Citizenship Award. “We, as a community and an organization, ask quite a bit of these players. You have a 16- or 17-yearold who has lived at home all his life and now he is one of 20 within a city of 17,000 (plus) people, many of whom are paying to go watch him play hockey or asking him to come to the school or sign autographs, all to the standard of a 20-year-old.” The award is given to a player who displays the same values as the Camrose Police Service. “It is a difficult thing to do because there are so many players who qualify,” smiled Matt, but it is obviously something he takes great pride and joy in doing. Like so many volunteers, Matt doesn’t do it for the accolades, however his mentorship with these young men and continual work with the Kodiaks does not go unnoticed. In 2016, he was nominated and was successful in receiving the Top Cop Award. “I am a giver by nature and I personally get enjoyment from a career standpoint. As a police service and community, it’s good to know we don’t have to worry about a team of 20 guys running amuck in the community.” He also said part of his reward is being able to give back to this group of young men who work hard and rise above. Matt’s desire to give back to his community stretches beyond the arena as well. Recently, he, along with help from school resource officer John Fernhout, developed a school initiative for Camrose Grade 2 students to create a poster emulating crime prevention. “Right now, the project is included in the art curriculum for all Grade 2 students in the community. One student from each school (Grade 2 classes) will be selected and brought to the police station to receive a trophy and given a tour.” For Matt, it’s all about leading by example, promoting a positive image for police officers and giving back wherever and however he can.

The Bailey Theatre in Camrose will be hosting five films on National Film Day, April 18. The theatre is open to the public and some schools have been invited. Fresh popcorn will be available. Each film will have a short introduction meant to orient the audience to the topic. Following the film, there will be a short period of discussion led by Leslie Lindballe. National Film Day enters its fifth year with a full day of Canadian Cinema at the Bailey Theatre. “Come in and grab a bag of popcorn and settle in for the day. The best part of the event is that it’s completely free,” Lindballe said. “This means that everyone is able to celebrate our expanding film industry, while connecting with essential work being done by our community organizations.” At 10 a.m., the animated French film Le Coq de St. Victor (1 hour 20 minutes) will be shown first. In this fun family comedy, a village rooster’s punctual (and loud) crowing keeps everyone awake until a group of sleepy locals hatch a scheme to get rid of him.

It will be followed at 12:45 p.m. by an animated film (English) The Breadwinner (1 hour 34 minutes). Produced by Mimi Polk Gitlin and Angelina Jolie, it is based on the best-selling novel by Deborah Ellis. The film was an international co-production between Canada, Ireland and Luxembourg. Parvana is an 11-yearold girl who lives under Taliban rule in Afghanistan in 2001. After the wrongful arrest of her father, Parvana cuts off her hair and dresses like a boy to support her family. Working alongside a friend, she soon discovers a new world of freedom and danger. Drawing strength from the fantastical stories she invents, Parvana embarks on an epic quest to find her father and reunite her family. At 4 p.m., the familyfriendly film The Whale (1 hour 25 minutes) shows. A young orca is separated from his family and winds up on the coast of British Columbia. While most wayward juvenile orcas die in alienation, Luna, as he’s nicknamed, desperately wants to socialize with the people of Canada’s Nootka Sound. This was produced and narrated by Ryan Reyn-

olds, who financed the documentary with ex-wife Scarlett Johansson. It is followed at 6 p.m. by a women’s shelter film A Good Man (1 hour 25 minutes). Alexander (Steven Seagal) is the leader of a covert operation on the border of Dagestan. The primary target is Islamic terrorist Abu Alwaki, whereas the secondary target is Mr. Chen (Tzi Ma). Mr. Chen is an Islamic fundamentalist arms dealer who is financing terrorism. The operation fails, resulting in the death of Alexander’s entire team and Mr. Chen’s escape. The day wraps up with an 8 p.m. hospice society film Away from Her (1 hour 50 minutes). The story centres on a couple whose marriage is tested when Julie Christie’s character begins to suffer from Alzheimer’s and moves into a nursing home, where she loses virtually all memory of her husband and begins to develop a close relationship with another nursing home resident. Ca mrose P ublic Library will be stopping by with the book bike and will have some other Canadian films that you can sign out.

Indian Horse movie provides insights to past By Murray Green

Duggan Cinemas will be showing the film Indian Horse that offers a glimpse in to the role residential schools played in Canada’s history. “It shows we are all people and we need to respect those around us. Also, in the wake of the Humboldt tragedy, it shows just how strong the community of hockey is to us Canadians.

“You don’t want to miss this movie,” said Cory Menzel, of Duggan Cinemas. “The movie is booked until at least April 19.” The synopsis for this film reads: In late 1950s Ontario, seven-year-old Saul Indian Horse is torn from his Ojibway family and committed to one of Canada’s notorious Catholic residential schools.

In this oppressive environment, Saul is denied the freedom to speak his language or embrace his indigenous heritage and he witnesses all kinds of abuse at the hands of the very people who were entrusted with his care. Despite this, Saul finds salvation in the unlikeliest of places and favourite Canadian pastimes— hockey. Fascinated by the game, he secretly teaches himself how to not only play, but develops a unique and rare skill. It’s as if he has eyes in the back of his head and can see the game in a way no other player can. His talent leads him away from the misery of the school to a Northern Ontario native league and eventually the pros. But the ghosts of Saul’s past will always haunt him. Forced to confront painful memories and revelations, Saul draws on the spirit of his ancestors and the understanding of his friends to gain the compassion he so sorely needs in order to begin healing. Indian Horse is a survivors’ tale that foregrounds the indomitable spirit of North America’s indigenous peoples in the

face of aggressive assimilation policies and racism. Saul Indian Horse’s story can be a tool to help foster further compassion and

understanding, and in the process, become universal. This film will not only help people see the atrocities that were commit-

ted in the past, but will also help people shed the unfounded racism that is still around to this day.

Camrose to host Alberta 55 Plus Spring Games next month By Murray Green

Camrose will be hosting the Alberta 55 Plus Spring Provincial Games from May 18 to 20. “Camrose was the first community to host the Alberta 55 Plus Games in 1980, 1982 and 1984. They haven’t been back since. In the past, the Alberta Sport Connection and the Alberta 55 Plus Provincial Board has sponsored the Winter and Summer Games, but in 2016, the government was unable to find a community to host either of these games. Therefore, the provincial government made a decision to discontinue the Winter Games and concentrate on just the Summer Games for 2017,” said Rosella Snopek, activity director for Silver Willow Association, Zone 4. “With this restructuring, the Alberta 55 Plus Provincial Board made a decision to continue offering some of the activities in Spring and Fall Games. Thus the first Fall Games were offered in Drumheller in 2016. Carrying on with this theme, the provincial board asked for a zone to host the 2017 Spring Games, but was unsuccessful.” The 2017 Fall Games were held in High Prairie and proved to be very successful. Calgary stepped up and held the 2017 Summer Games as these were qualifiers for the 2018 Canada 55 Plus Games in

St. John, New Brunswick, as were the Fall Games in High Prairie. Now the board was looking for a community to host the 2018 Spring Games, which are non-active activities in the sense of the amount of energy used to play these games. Zone 4 stepped forward and chose Camrose as their location. In the past up to 2015, the accommodations and transportation were provided by the host community and government. “With all the cutbacks, this is no longer available and is reflected in the lower registration fee charged to the participant,” explained Rosella. Camrose will attract between 275 to 300 participants to the Games, including friends, spouses, volunteers, provincial and zone board members. Events include cribbage (singles and doubles), floor curling, 8-ball, military whist, snooker, contract bridge, Scrabble and cultural events including quilting, scrapbooking, woodworking, decorative and native arts, mixed media and photography. Two of these events–contract bridge and Scrabble– are qualifiers to advance to the Canada 55 Plus Games as well. Mirror Lake Centre will host the registration of the participants on May 18, as well as the activities of floor curling, snooker, contract bridge, Scrabble

and cultural events on May 19 and 20. The Camrose branch of the Royal Canadian Legion will host cribbage as well as the medal presentation for the cultural events on May 19. Norseman Inn will host 8-ball and military whist on May 19 and 20. The Opening ceremonies and banquet will be hosted at the Camrose Resort Casino ballroom. Zone playoffs to qualify for these games have been completed, with 10 from Camrose and County of Camrose advancing. “Our future looks bright. Cold Lake has agreed to host the Alberta 55 Plus Winter Games in March 2019 which we are doing on our own. It is a big undertaking for our seniors’ group, but we are up for the challenge. We are close to announcing a community to host the 2019 Alberta 55 Plus Summer Games. These games are a combination of active and passive activities as they were up to 2015,” said Rosella. “Our organization is committed to keeping Albertans healthy and vibrant, both mentally and physically.” For more information, or learn how to volunteer, contact Rosella at zone4activities @ or phone 780-608-1391.

July 9, 1940 ~ April 11, 2018 Doug was born in Camrose on July 9, 1940. He passed away in Camrose on April 11, 2018 at the age of 77 years. Doug married Myrnel on February 11, 1961 at Bethel Lutheran Church. From this union, four children were born: Blaine, Shelley, Darrell and Robert.  Doug and Myrnel had many happy years together. Doug started his career with the Bank of Montreal at the age of nineteen. His many positions and promotions within the bank took the family all over Alberta. Once Doug retired, they spent their winters in California where they were able to pursue golfing year round. Doug enjoyed baseball, fishing, golfing, hunting, camping and weekend farming with his family. Doug and Myrnel were avid Blue Jays fans, but Doug cheered for the New York Yankees just to get a reaction from Myrnel. A typical Doug trait – teasing and eliciting a reaction from those around him. Left to cherish his memory are his wife Myrnel; children Blaine (Kimberly), Shelley (Michael) Wiese, Darrell (Tami-lyn) and Robert (Meshel); fourteen grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and brothers Dennis (Judy), Max (Alice) and Vada (Pat). Douglas was predeceased by his parents Walter and Esther. A private family service was held.

Szott commits to Merrimack College By Murray Green

Bawlf area hockey player Raice Szott knows where she is going to play a couple of years from now. She agreed to attend and play hockey for Division 1 NCAA Merrimack College in North Andover, Massachusetts starting in the 2020-21 school year. The 16-year-old Grade 10 student played for the Red Deer Chiefs midget triple-A female team this past season. “I went to play in Red Deer because it was at a higher level. They only have six midget triple-A female teams in Alberta. I signed with Red Deer because it was closer and I wanted to go to high school there. The coach also saw me play at the Alberta Challenge Cup and invited me to attend their spring camp. From the camp, they offered me a spot on the team,” shared Raice. When Raice played hockey in Camrose, she was playing with the boys for atom double-A, peewee double-A and Bantam double-A, before moving up to midget triple-A female hockey in Red Deer. “The difference is the hitting. Guys like to hit and I grew up playing guys’ hockey. It is also a faster game. When I switched back to female hockey, I had an advantage after playing with guys.”

Red Deer finished the regular season in third place and then received a bronze medal in provincials. “I’ve been training with Steve Adams and he has a lot of contacts with coaches in NCAA. He was in touch with one of the coaches at Merrimack and sent some highlight videos that I had made. The coach was invited out to provincials and watched me play. Then in February, I went to Merrimack and checked out the campus,” said Raice. The defenceman will be enrolling in business at Merrimack and has already geared her high school studies towards business classes. “The Olympic teams usually get players from the Division 1 teams, so it is a high level of hockey.” Raice can relax, knowing she will be receiving a good education at Merrimack. “It is a relief knowing what I want to study and where I am going to play hockey. I’ve always thought about playing hockey after high school. It is an awesome feeling,” she said. “It will be cool to get a degree in business from a college in the United States and have that on my resume.” She visited four colleges in the States before committing to Merrimack. “Another college also offered me a spot, but this just felt bet-

ter. I liked everything about the campus. It also has easy access to the airport, which is great for family and when I go home.” She looks up to T.J. Brodie on the Calgary Flames as a player she admires. “He is a defenceman and I like the way he plays– good work ethic. I want to be known as someone who works hard every shift. I want to be that reliable defenceman,” added Raice. She will be counted on by her coaches and teammates to be a shutdown defenceman in midget for two more years before heading off to college. “I had a lot of special coaches along the way in Rosalind, Daysland and Camrose. Rob Petiot and Brad Zimmer got me started. Rick Marcinkoski got me to believe in myself and other coaches like Shane Gau, Bob Charchun, Rich Leslie, Charles Bullee, Ryan Popowich and Neal Isnor also really helped me along the way,” she concluded. Former Camrose Kodiak player Cole McBride is currently on the Merrimack roster. Raice was invited to the Team Alberta U18 Spring Selection Camp May 24 to 27 in Spruce Grove. Approximately 80 players were invited by Hockey Alberta based on this past season’s performance.

Raice Szott will be suiting up for the Red Deer Chiefs for two more years before joining Merrimack.

Model T 1919 car turned into a farm truck By Murray Green

Edith Helen Hills (1892-1976) donated a black 1919 Model T Ford to the Camrose and District Centennial Museum. Her husband, Ellsworth Hills, was one of the first people who organized the formation of the museum in Camrose. In the future, the car turned truck that is in the workshop at the museum, will be brought back to running condition. “Our Model T was made into a truck around 1934 for the hired hand (today he would be called the ranch foreman) to drive in the fields, so it doesn’t look like the original 1919 Model T. It was donated by the estate of Mrs. Edith Hills,” said Dariya Veenstra, museum coordinator with information from museum guru Dave Fitchie. The 1919 models were given a battery and electric starter (the first year for electric starter) and electric lights. The horn will only work when the magneto ignition is being used. The transmission is a planetary transmission operated by foot pedals. The left hand pedal, when pushed down to the floor, is in low gear and when you let it up, it goes into high gear. When pushed halfway, it is in neutral. You can hold the pedal there and hold the centre pedal down and that was the reverse gear. A right hand pedal was the brake. Brakes were in the transmission and had rear wheel brakes only. “I know we had it out for events in the past and it might have been in the Big Valley Jamboree parade once or twice, but unfortunately it does not run right now and is for display only. We are trying to get it fixed and running again for our events,” explained Dariya. The holdup is in regards to having the money to fix it up. The Ford Model T (known as the Tin Lizzie) is an automobile produced by Ford Motor Company from Oct. 1, 1908, to May 26, 1927. It is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, the car that opened travel to

the common middle class; some of this was because of Ford’s efficient fabrication, including assembly-line production instead of individual handcrafting. Although automobiles had already existed for decades, they were still mostly scarce, expensive and unreliable during the Model T’s introduction in 1908. Ford classified the Model T with a single letter designation throughout its entire life and made no distinction by model years; enough significant changes to the body were made over the production life that the car may be classified into several style categories. Amoung the most immediately visible and identifiable changes were in the hood and cowl areas, although many other modifications were made to the vehicle. From its beginning to 1914, it was characterized by a nearly straight, fivesided hood, with a flat top containing a centre hinge and two side sloping sections containing the folding hinges. The firewall was

flat from the windshield down with no distinct cowl. The 1915 and 1916 models had a hood design that was nearly the same five-sided design with the only obvious change being the addition of louvers to the vertical sides. A significant change to the cowl area occurred with the windshield relocated significantly behind the firewall and joined with a compound-contoured cowl panel. Then from 1917 to 1923, the hood design was changed to a tapered design with a curved top. The folding hinges were now located at the joint between the flat sides and the curved top. This is sometimes referred to as the “low hood” to distinguish it from the later hoods. The back edge of the hood now met the front edge of the cowl panel, so that no part of the flat firewall was visible outside of the hood. This design was used the longest and during the highest production years, accounting for about half of the total number of Model Ts built.

The Hills turned the car into a truck probably by necessity. During the dirty ’30s, money was tight and changing the vehicle to suit their needs was a better option than buying a whole new truck. The cost of a 1919 Model T was about $500. In 1934, the price on a truck

was about a couple of hundred dollars higher. In 1930, the average cost of new car was $640 and the average income was $1,970. The average income dropped to about $1,730 by the late ’30s with unemployment reaching more than 30 per cent.

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.

Two Charlie Killam School athletes received medals in the 40th annual Indoor Games in Edmonton on March 17. Athletes from Grades 3 to 12 competed at the Universiade Pavilion to experience exciting competing in the tradition of good sportsmanship. Grade 6 twins, Nicholas Taylor collected silver in the 800 metre run and Luka Taylor received a bronze medal in long jump. “There were about 20 athletes competing in long jump and I ended up third,” said Luka. “I did fairly well in track last year in Camrose finishing first in that event, so I decided to go on and do this event. I wanted a little more challenge.” He leaped 4.24 metres in the final, after recording a 4.21 in the preliminary round.

“In the 800 metre, there were about 60 competitors,” said Nicholas. “I like to run and have been in several cross-country races before. I did pretty well in those, so I thought I would enter the Indoor Games. This was my third year in the Games,” explained Nicholas. “This was my best year and I like the longer races.” He came in second in the 800-metre race in 2:38.87 minutes, about two seconds behind the leader. He beat his semifinal time of 2:41.41 as well. “It was pretty cool to win a medal and it will be hanging in my room for a long time,” said Luka. “It sure does inspire me to continue in track and to do a little more, train harder.” Luka also likes the 200-metre race because of his strength as a sprinter. “It was a good experience and yes, I’ll hang this

in my room too and it will be a good thing to remember,” added Nicholas. “I want to keep on going.” Nicholas also enjoys the relay races, but didn’t have time to enter the event this year. He also likes the 400-metre, ball throw and long jump events as well. The boys also play hockey, soccer and triathlon together to keep in shape all year. “We go to the track at the Encana Arena and train. We run laps and I jump the stairs to stretch my stride out,” said Luke. “Sometimes my mom and dad time us,” added Nicholas. They are waiting for the snow to melt to continue running outside. Several other athletes from Camrose competed in various events at the Indoor Games in addition to the medal winners.

Spring pro rodeo action returns to the CRE ring By Murray Green

The saying that it isn’t officially spring until the annual Camrose Spring Classic Pro Rodeo arrives at the Camrose Regional Exhibition, couldn’t be any truer this year. April 27 to 29 will mark the 29th edition. Three rounds of action occur Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. and 2 p.m. on Sunday. A Saturday rodeo dance featuring Charlie Major begins at 9:30 p.m.

Every rodeo performance features different competitors in bareback, saddle bronc, tie-down roping, steer wrestling, team roping, ladies’ barrel racing and bull-riding events. “You can go to all three performances and not see the same cowboy twice, unless they are in more than one event,” shared CRE manager Chuck Erman. “We are part of a circuit where cowboys will be attending more than one

rodeo on the weekend. That allows us to attract the big names in each event.” Major, a former Big Valley Jamboree performer, will be providing the entertainment during the dance on Saturday evening. You don’t have to attend the rodeo to purchase tickets for the concert. Doors open at 8 p.m. The Spring Classic draws more than 300 competitors and 4,000 spectators each year.

Student achievement celebrated By Lori Larsen

The University of Alberta Augustana Campus celebrated the outstanding achievements of students in athletics, academics and student life of the campus during the Student Life Awards Celebration, April 4. “A key purpose of the event is to increase awareness of, and appreciation for, the many ways in which our students provide lead-

ership on campus and in the community,” said University of Alberta Augustana Campus executive director of student life, Randal Nickel. “It was great to see students applauding each other’s achievements.” Students from across the campus were recognized with various leadership awards. “Our athletes and coaches look forward each year to celebrating our

achievements,” noted University of Alberta Augustana Campus athletics director, Greg Ryan. “The evening was special because we were able to share it with all of the student leaders on campus.” The evening combined the former Colour Night and the Student Leadership Awards into one main celebration of students and their accomplishments.
