Kiwanis Top Cop building bridges within the community

By Lori Larsen

The annual Top Cop award, sponsored by Camrose and District Kiwanis Club in cooperation with Camrose Police Service (CPS), presented Camrose Police Service crime prevention/community relations Constable Kelly Bauer with this year’s honour during the regular City of Camrose council meeting on June 4 at council chambers. Councillors, administration, several members of the Kiwanis Club, CPS and the community joined Mayor Norm Mayer in congratulating Constable Bauer for his continuous work as a dedicated police officer and his commitment to building strong bridges between the citizens and the police service. The Top Cop award is presented annually in recognition of an individual officer’s commitment towards going above and beyond his/her duties as a member of the CPS. “I am thrilled to see Const. Bauer recognized by Kiwanis with the 2017 Top Cop Award,” said Camrose Police Chief Mark Neufeld. “I can’t begin to tell you how frequently people approach me in the community to tell me what a good job he is doing. Whether it is working with seniors on fraud prevention, with children in our schools, or the business community around initiatives to reduce crime, Const. Bauer is making a strong, positive impact in our city. He is an active volunteer and he can always be counted on to get things done. He is not only a great police officer, he’s a great person.” Const. Bauer has been a member of Camrose Police Service since 2005. He began his policing career later in life after an 18-year career in the agriculture industry. Having grown up in Vegreville, Bauer’s knowledge of policing was with the RCMP, but because he didn’t want to have to move his family around as much as is required by RCMP and didn’t want to live or police in a large city, he looked up Camrose Police Service online, saw they were recruiting and the rest is history. Camrose seemed like a natural choice for Const.

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster This year’s recipient of the Camrose and District Kiwanis Top Cop Award, Camrose Police Service crime prevention/community relations Constable Kelly Bauer, left, accepts the award from Kiwanis member Derek Robertson on June 4 at City of Camrose Council Chambers.

Bauer and his wife. It was a smaller city, yet large enough to have all the amenities and services they wanted to raise their three daughters. In his 13 years of service (this fall) with CPS, Bauer has worked patrol, traffic, school resource officer and presently holds the position of crime prevention/community relations officer. As crime prevention/ community relations officer, he is responsible for developing and maintaining community partnerships that promote public safety and engage the citizens of Camrose in preventing themselves from becoming victims of crime. He goes above and beyond the call of duty to create both a positive and effective liaison between residents, the police service and many community initiatives such as Crime Stoppers, Camrose Wise Owls, Camrose Business Watch, the Camrose and District Victim Service Unit, Camrose Family Violence Action Society, Battle River Elder Abuse and DARE, not to mention numerous community boards and advocate groups. He is often seen during all hours of day, attending

various community events hosted or participated in by CPS, and has become a welcoming and familiar face among the youth and seniors of Camrose. The Eyes On Camrose program, recently launched by CPS, was spearheaded by Const. Bauer with input from fellow members and has become a intricate tool in helping to keep Camrose a safe community. Bauer feels honoured to have been chosen as this year’s Top Cop, especially because the award is nominated by the community. “It is good to see that people who I deal with in my role have had a good experience with whatever facet of my position I am dealing with them and they appreciate the job that I have done (and continue to do).” A comment posted on Facebook by a community member, whose only contact with Const. Bauer was through his position, said, “He is the most approachable police officer I have ever met.” This comment resonated with Bauer and gave him a true sense of accomplishment. Above his gratitude for being recognized, Bauer sincerely remarked that he is merely one cog on the wheel that continues to move Camrose Police

Service. “It’s a true team effort. There are other roles that aren’t nearly as visible to the community and those members work very hard as well. The shift work and hours that they do can take a toll. “There are so many members on our police service that could be nominated. I work with a lot of good people, we just all have different roles within the police service,” he said. Recently Const. Bauer experienced firsthand the difference positive interactions can have on, not only members of the community, but himself, during a chance meeting with a young boy at a convenience store, who proudly showed Bauer the slurpee he was getting. “He (little boy) showed me the drink and I mentioned how lucky he was to be able to mix different flavours. Just before, he (little boy) and his mom left the store he said, ‘Mom that’s the first time I talked with a police officer.’ After he said that, the cashier smiled at me, the mother was smiling at me and I couldn’t stop smiling either. “It may sound cliche, but we get into policing to make a difference,” said Bauer adding whether it is

catching a break and enter in progress or having an all-important conversation with a four-year-old boy about the slurpee he was drinking. For Constable Bauer, and many other CPS members, the most important part of their job is knowing that they are making a difference. “Sometimes we get so busy that we don’t take the time to do those little things and that is often where the payoff is. It not only makes a difference in the lives of our citizens, but ours as well.” Another comment posted on Facebook, from one of Constable Bauer’s colleagues, pretty much summed up the reason Bauer was chosen as this year’s recipient. “Constable Bauer is recognized for his help starting the Eyes On Camrose initiative, as well as his strong efforts to bridge the gap between citizens and officers.” Outside of his busy career with CPS, Bauer enjoys spending time with his family including the apple of his eye, his nearly one-year-old grandaughter. He competed for 16 years in triathlon events, stays fit with cross training and is a member of Century Meadows Baptist Church. The Camrose and District Kiwanis Club applauds the efforts of the Camrose Police Service in both their professional and volunteer service to the community. “I commend the Camrose and District Kiwanis Club for the great work they do in our community,” mentioned Chief Neufeld. “I appreciate their commitment to recognizing the contributions of members of the Camrose Police Service over the years. We have a great group of employees, both sworn in and civilian, who do so much to make Camrose the great community that it is. As an organization, we are extremely proud of our people and it’s nice to see them recognized in this way.” Anyone who has had the pleasure of dealing with Const. Bauer in his role with CPS knows that he goes above and beyond the call of duty to build bridges of trust and engagement between CPS and Camrose residents.

CWSS program explores human interaction with wildlife

By Lori Larsen

Whether enjoying the sight of deer grazing in our City valleys or out in the mountains appreciating the sight of a black bear roaming the hillside, living in harmony with nature is an every day part of life. On June 14, at 7 p.m. at the Stoney Creek Centre, 5320-39 Avenue, Cam-

rose Wildlife Stewardship Society (CWSS) summer program presents WildNorth, with a session on cohabitating with wildlife. WildNorth (formerly the Wildlife Rehabilitation Society of Edmonton) is a charitable organization that focuses on rescuing and rehabilitating animals of all shapes and sizes.

They treat over 2500 wild animals annually. “Come and learn about human-animal conf licts and how to safely interact with local wildlife,” said CWSS coordinator Carolyn Cook. “And meet WildNorth’s live animal ambassador, Wild Rose the porcupine.” Anyone attending the

CWSS events are invited to enter their name into a draw for a variety of prizes donated by local businesses, by filling out an evaluation on the event. The more events you attend and fill out evaluations the more chances you will have to win. The Camrose Purple Martin Festival will be taking place on June 16 at

Stoney Creek Centre. Be sure to come out and enjoy a day of fun and informative activities for the family. For more information on the Camrose Wildlife and Greenspace Stewardship programs and upcoming events contact Carolyn Cook at ccook2@ualberta. ca or by telephone at 780672-0544.

City financial statements in solid standings

By Lori Larsen

City of Camrose council approved the 2017 audited financial statements presented by auditor Grant Burgess of the auditing firm Grant Thornton during the regular council meeting held on April 16. Speaking on a few of the highlights of the report, Burgess began by saying the City is in a solid financial position. Total financial assets for the year 2017 are $89,344,365 of which $76,269,557 are cash and

temporary investments. The total liabilities are $50,757,178 which include the long-term debt of $18,764,788. “When the City borrows money for projects, such as the Recreation Centre, those are what comprise our long-term debt which we usually get through the Alberta Capital Finance Authority,” said City of Camrose financial services general manager Travis Bouck. In a comparison of finances from 2007 to

2017, Burgess pointed out to council that in 10 years, the City has come a long way. Bouck explained, “Our debt has decreased significantly from $31 million in 2007 to $19 million in 2017. Reserves and other amounts set aside for future use have increased, during the same time frame, from $27 million to $74 million and we have been able to continue to operate within our annual operational approved budgets.” Bouck indicated this is the reason capital projects such as the new Aquatic Centre, Wastewater Treatment Plant, Public Works Building and 48th Avenue Bridge are able to be considered. “We are currently looking at and evaluating these projects in an attempt to ensure that the services we provide the residents of Camrose continue to improve.” Revenues and Expenses

Revenues

for

2017

were $49,708,372 with $ 24,773,265 specif ically from net municipal taxes compared to 2016 of $49,626,215 with $24,313,484 from net municipal taxes. Total expenses for 2017 were $46,396,496 compared to 2016 of $45,472,084. Burgess noted how close the numbers stayed from year to year in an operation the size of the City of Camrose. Bouck said, “Over time, costs are going to increase as the City grows and the scope of your services increase. Anytime the City increases, the level of service for the residents (such as upgrading the Aquatic Centre to meet the communities growing needs), it costs money.” Burgess referred to the consolidated expenses by object for 2017 totalling $46,396,496 compared to 2016 of $45,472,084. He specifically pointed out

that in 2017, $20,509,682 was spent on salaries, wages and benefits, $6,668,022 on contracted and general services and $7,414,800 on materials, goods and utilities. “It shows where you are spending your money and that it has an impact on the area and people,” said Burgess. The biggest costs to the City after amortization are protective services at $6,519,586, recreation and culture which includes all facilities at the Recreation Centre, Aquatics Centre, Community Centre, all parks systems, City-owned soccer fields, ball diamonds, golf course, cemetery, museum and Chuck MacLean Arts Centre at $7,278,293 and roads, streets, walks and lighting at $6,781,528. Bouck concluded, “The City is in a relatively strong financial position after a long period of fiscally responsible planning.”

Are you in the yellow zone?

knew I was in trouble.

I turned into the alley behind the building where my office was, on the way to my parking stall. A truck was blocking the alley. I burst into tears. Scary? You bet. I thought of things I’d accomplished in my life; tough situations I’d handled, learned from and then flourished. And a truck blocking the alley wiped me out? I ***

Last week I flashed back to that incident from thirty years ago while I attended a workshop about “Vicarious Trauma” and “Compassion Fatigue.” To grossly over-simplify, “vicarious trauma” is the impact on people who help those who have been through traumatic experiences. Police, Victim Services workers, paramedics and other emergency medical people; therapists, counsellors, people who support immigrants and refugees, child welfare workers and social workers… When dealing day after day with those who have experienced horrific traumas, the “helpers” begin to have some of the same symptoms as those who’ve had the horrific experiences. For example, they may become hyper-vigilant and on red-alert even in situations where they are in no danger. “Compassion fatigue” can also be experienced by people who deal with other people’s trauma, or people who are in a caregiver role, giving and giving and not necessarily getting anything back. One of the signs of “compassion fatigue” is gradually losing the capacity for empathy.

BULLYING ENNS

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster In a show of strength and support, 15 riders showed up at 12-year-old Brody Kucinskas’ grandparents front door on May 23 to escort him to school. The riders were part of the Bullying Enns biker group that travel northern and central Alberta to let, specifically children and youth, know there are people out there who care and will help in the cause against bullying. Brody is pictured centre of photo sitting atop one of the riders motorcycles.

***

Most of us don’t have jobs or life circumstances that expose us to super-traumatic situations or require us to care for relentless needs of others every day. All of us have times in our lives that are particularly demanding, asking more of us than we know we can handle. One of the workshop concepts I especially appreciated–useful for all of us–was the idea of paying attention to our “yellow zone.” ***

We all know what our “green zone” feels like. We’re at the top of our game, lots of energy, good at what we do, enjoying life, enjoying work, enjoying the people in our life… Most have us, if we’re middle aged or older, have probably had a taste of what our “red zone” feels like – when we know it’s time to stop, or maybe our bodies or minds have already stopped us. We’re exhausted. We over-react to situations that ordinarily wouldn’t bother us. The “yellow zone”–like traffic lights warning us that in a few seconds we can no longer “go”–is particularly interesting. The “yellow zone” gives us early indicators that we’re not optimum and need to pay attention.

LIONS HELP SHELTER

***

At the workshop, we each identified what our indicators are that we’re in the yellow zone. For some of us it was physical. We get a cold or a headache or a rash. For others it was emotional–we’re more easily upset, get angrier or sadder or more fearful than usual. Still others had mental indicators–we think dark thoughts; are more critical and judgmental than usual; are more confused and can’t think clearly. Behavioural indicators might be that we take stupid risks; bury ourselves in minddistracting activities; ignore problems that are staring us in the face. ***

Also at the workshop, we identified ways we can pay more attention to our yellow zone indicators, and take actions to help us move back into the green zone. Some of those actions are self-care practices we can do on our own. Some of the actions might be to make changes in our relationships or our environments. The workshop gave me more appreciation for the yellow zone–our own personal warning system to help us stay healthy. So, what are your signs of being in a yellow zone? How do you move back to your green zone? ***

The ALS Society of Alberta will be hosting its annual Walk for ALS in Camrose on June 23 at Mirror Lake. This volunteer event encourages friends, family and community to come together to celebrate and promote hope for a future without ALS. Walk for ALS is an annual event that takes place in over 90 locations across the country. Participants are encouraged to solicit donations, and can set up a personal fundraising website to track their progress. About 60 per cent of funds raised from each event goes to client support services in Alberta and 40 per cent is donated to the national ALS research program.

Registration will be held at 10:30 a.m. with a kick-off slated for 11 a.m. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a rapid, always fatal neurodegenerative disease. It attacks the nerves of the body that would normally send messages from the brain to the muscle, resulting in weakness and wasting. Eventually, the individual with ALS is left completely immobilized, with loss of speech and an inability to swallow and breathe. There is no known cause or cure for this devastating disease. For more information on the ALS Society of Alberta, call 780-487-0754.

2018 SPRING HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE ROUND-UP

Friday, June 15, 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. AND Saturday, June 16, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Public Works Yards, 4202-51 Avenue, Camrose City of Camrose Public Works Department – Phone 780-672-5513 Now is the opportunity to clean out all those half-empty containers that may be dangerous if dumped down the drain, poured on the ground, or even sent to the Camrose Landfill. Every householder uses products in the house and garden containing chemicals that are hazardous when disposed of improperly. Mixed together in landfills, these chemicals can be dangerous – to the workers and to the environment. Camrose Spring Household Hazardous Waste Round-Up will be held on Friday, June 15 and Saturday, June 16, 2018 at the PUBLIC WORKS YARDS. Keep your materials in their original containers. If the container is broken or cracked, place it inside a leak-proof package and label it. If you discover jars or cans of unidentified chemicals, take them to the Round-Up and tell a staff person you are unsure of the contents. Any container that cautions about careful use of the product or disposal of the container should be included in the Hazardous Waste Round-Up.

Examples of typical household hazardous wastes are: - Metal Polish - Adhesives - Oven Cleaner - Aerosols - Pesticides - Ammonia - Pharmaceuticals - Art Supplies - Photography - Bleach Chemicals - Barbecue Starter - Rodent Poison - Cleaning Fluids - Solvents - Disinfectants - Swimming Pool - Drain Cleaners Chemicals - Flea Powder - Waxes - Herbicides - Wood Preservatives - Insecticides

All the materials collected at the Household Hazardous Waste Round-Up will be collected, classified, manifested, packed and transported by trained personnel and taken to the Alberta Special Waste Management Facility near Swan Hills where the waste will be taken for proper treatment and disposal. The cost of treatment will be borne by Alberta Environment. Your cooperation and support of the Camrose Household Hazardous Waste Round-Up is most appreciated.

Lougheed Centre Season Launch By Murray Green

It is going to be another great season of entertainment that will be announced at the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre at a Season Launch celebration on Thursday, June 14 at 7 p.m. You will be able to take tours of the facility, view video clips of the upcoming shows and listen to Bernard Quilala and the Q-Tones from the cabaret series. This is a free event, open to the public. Community tours begin at 6 p.m. At 7 p.m. sneak peek video trailers of each of the artists will be shown prior to the live performance. “We have 31 artists booked for the 2018-19 season already,” said an excited Nick Beach, general manager of the Lougheed Centre. The Lougheed Centre have four series. The Shuman Insurance Series is the main presentation throughout the year. The Central Agencies Cabaret Series

will be in the Mayer Hall, the Tracy Brandingen Re/ Max Classical Series and the Fountain Tire Family Series will fill out the season. A few acts will be added during the year that are part of the Special Presentations. One of the major changes this season will be the fact that most shows will begin at 7:30 p.m. this season to get everyone home a little sooner. “The Pick 6 option was very popular. In fact, most picked 10 or 11 shows, so we added a Pick 10 option for people.” Presentation series

Lisa Brokop will present Legendary Ladies of Country to open the series on Saturday, Sept. 29. Cirque Eloize presents Saloon, a musical acrobatic adventure on Friday, Oct. 5. “This is a giant circus show and Circus Eloize is the second biggest company in Canada. They have been around for 25 years,” said Nick. “Canada is known for its cirque shows, but they

don’t often play out west. It has taken us two years to get them here.” One of Canada’s women of rock, Sass Jordan, will share songs from her album Racine in a show called Racine Revisited on Saturday, Oct. 26. “It’s the 25th anniversary of the album that kicked off her career.” Telemetry, a Radical System Art by Shay Kuebler takes dance to a whole new level on Friday, Nov. 9. “It is a contemporary dance art form. It is extreme high energy. This is a show that people have to trust us on. It is a great show that will blow you away. Shay is from Sherwood Park so he is excited to come back home, but this is his only northern Alberta show.” A Christmas special with plenty of east coast music will be shared with the Barra MacNeils on Saturday, Nov. 24. “They were one of the first artists to play here, so we wanted to bring them back.” This year’s illusionist Spidey’s Make Believe offers a mix of hypnotist/mentalist/ magician on Friday, Jan. 18. “He is aggravating because he is so good,” commented Nick. The comedy team that will make you laugh this year will be brought to you by Cathy Jones (This Hour has 22 Minutes) and Bruce McCulloch (Kids in the Hall) on Friday, Feb. 1. One of the funniest nights of the year will be on Friday, Feb. 22 with the Golden Girl’s Thank You for Being a Friend show. “Last year, I brought an off Broadway show called Menopause The Musical. I was looking for another fun big production. It has a full sized replica set with life sized puppets. It is so funny.” Ballet Jorgen is coming back due to popular demand. This time the Canada group will be bringing Coppelia back to life on stage on Thursday, March 14. It is one of the oldest shows in the world. Continued on page 13

Get ready for the biggest and hottest show ever held at the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre. Main Street was jammed with music fans on Saturday, June 2. “We were excited to play in Camrose during the Jaywalkers’ Jamboree and everyone loved it,” said Marc, the oldest of the Melisizwe Brothers. “We believe that we should always give back to our roots and support where we come from. We have always wanted to come to Camrose and perform on stage and we can’t wait to perform at the Lougheed Centre.” The Melisizwe Brothers will be playing at the Lougheed Centre on June 16 at 7:30 p.m. They already stole the hearts of Camrosians when the brothers recently played at the Jaywalkers Jamboree on June 2. “We’ve been to Camrose a lot of times. I think the Lougheed Centre is a really cool facility and it will be great to sing there,” added Zacary. The Melisizwe Brothers will present an exciting evening of world class musical performances, from brothers Marc, Seth and Zacary. They are 15, 12 and 11 years old.

“I always believed that my brothers and I could do something in music together. It just took us some time to put it all together. I started at a young age and really liked it when Zacary started singing. I liked it when Seth started on piano as well,” shared Marc. Sure Burton Cummings and The Barenaked Ladies were huge shows, but this is the show that people will be talking about 20 years from now as being the number one performance held in Camrose in 2018. “Being in a family band is really fun because we are all together and supporting each other,” said Zacary. “Being on stage with my brothers is a pleasure because we get to stick together. It makes the journey special because they are my brothers and my best friends. It wouldn’t be as much fun without them,” added Seth. The Leduc performers have already been on the Ellen Degeneres show, Steve Harvey and The Apollo Theatre and Times Square New York. This is a musical event for the whole family. “We received our music talent from both of our parents. Our dad plays the saxophone and dabbles a little bit in bass guitar. Our mom is a beautiful singer,

her voice is like an angel. That is where Zac gets his voice from,” said Marc. “I always listened to my mom sing when she came home from work and I would ask what song are you singing mom? She would tell me and it is awesome listening to her sing,” added Zacary. “Back when we were way younger we would all participate together in the basement. My dad played bass, I played the piano, Zacary played drums, Marc played guitar and mom would help us with singing. It wasn’t a band, we did it for fun as a family,” explained Seth. “We couldn’t let the instruments go to waste, so we had to use them.” The three boys sound a lot like the The Jackson 5 and perform mostly Motown music such as Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston. “We love funk, soul and R and B music. We listen to the Jackson 5 and Stevie Wonder. We always try to learn and better ourselves in music from listening to the old guys, the greats in music,” shared Marc. “I like all of the Motown artists because we got inspired by them. They inspire us to create more music and write songs,” said Zacary. Continued on page 15

Junior high choir back up Melisizwe Brothers By Murray Green

Local junior high students will be singing back up vocals in the song “Heal the World” during the Melisizwe Brothers concert at the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre. “I received a call from Mark, the dad, after he called the university looking for a choir group that would be interested in performing backup vocals on one of the songs during their concert.

I started asking questions about what age he was looking for and how big of a group he wanted,” said Val Bailey, administrative assistant for the fine arts department at the University of Alberta Augustana Campus. “I soon realized that the best person to approach was my husband Bob (music teacher at École Charlie Killam School) because he is teaching the age level they wanted. Mark was looking for a choral

arrangement, so I knew that Tom Splia (community band leader and retired high school instructor) could help them with that.” She contacted a bunch of parents and soon a choir called the Melisizwe Brothers Choral Project was formed. “We have about 18 singers between 10 and 15 years of age inclusive. They are very excited about it and have rehearsed four times

prior to Jaywalkers’ Jamboree,” added Val. The Melisizwe Brothers will present an exciting evening of world class musical performances from brothers Marc, Seth and Zacary. They are 15, 12 and 11 years old. “The song is one that Michael Jackson wrote and it is the Melisizwe Brothers’ version of that song. It really lends itself to a youth choir because of the whole concept that the song is about

people, young and old, getting together and healing the world with love,” explained Val. “It will be very fun for the students and they are excited to perform with them. Some of them came out to Jaywalkers’ Jamboree just to hear them sing. The brothers sent an arrangement so we can hear what they are going to sound like. We have two rehearsals lined up with them to bring it altogether.”

“People say we sound like Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5. I try to sound like myself. I listen to other people and fuse it into my own style. I want it to sound like the way I want to perform songs,” said Zacary. The boys received their start taking classes at the Leduc School of Music. Originally from the Caribbean, they make their home in Leduc when they are not travelling around the world. “Mom’s friend Leslie gave us an old keyboard for Zacary and I like to play around on and we both learned how to play. Marc was taking guitar and singing lessons, so that is when we decided that Zac should try the drums so we could play as a band. We played at my aunt’s house and it was the first time we realized that we were good enough to play as a band,” recalled Seth. Since that date, the brothers have been playing together for three years as a band. “Over time we have built confidence to play without getting nervous. It doesn’t matter how big the crowd is because it feels we are

performing to one person,” said Zacary. “We write every day and we add our own music to the concert. We are home schooled, so we take time out of the day to write songs and work on original material,” added Marc. “We all participate in writing as a family,” said Seth. “Our mom helps teach us, but sometimes she is hard on us,” revealed Zacary. “We do three or four hours of school work, write and practice every day.” The boys know music is always going to be a part of them. “We want to play music full time when we are finished school. We also want to do it together. We get to travel the world and perform, and it is what we want to do,” said Marc. The brothers want to share their music with the world. “We want Camrose people to come to the family show. It is going to be a wonderful evening of music,” said Marc. “The Camrose choir will have an impact on the whole audience and it is going to be really great,” concluded Seth. “The choir will help us touch people’s hearts,” said Zacary.

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Zacary is the lead singer of the Melisizwe Brothers and sounds like Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder on stage. The brothers want to keep performing as a family band.

Men Who Fell to Earth honour Tragically Hip By Murray Green

Local band Men Who Fell to Earth will be honouring another Canadian band with a concert entitled Courage: A Tragically Hip Tribute. Last fall, Oct. 18, 2017, Canada lost a great artist with the death of Gord Downie. A celebration of music from the Tragically Hip will be performed by Camrose’s Men who Fell to Earth on Saturday, June 23 beginning at 8 p.m. The Hip, and Gord

Downie, touched Camrose residents with the band’s performance at the Camrose Regional Exhibition grounds on July 19, 1997. The group led off the concert with one of their biggest hits, “New Orleans is Sinking.” The Hip also appearing at Stage 13 on July 14, 2002 at the CRE. The Tragically Hip formed in 1984 in Kingston, Ontario. Gord Sinclair and Rob Baker were students at Kingston Collegiate and had performed together at the KCVI Vari-

ety Show as the Rodents. Baker and Sinclair joined with Downie and Fay in 1984 and began playing gigs around Kingston with some memorable stints at Clark Hall Pub and Alfie’s, student bars on Queen’s University campus. Guitarist Paul Langlois joined in 1986 and saxophonist Davis Manning left that same year. By the mid-1980s they performed in small music venues across Ontario until being seen by thenMCA vice-president Bruce

Dickinson at the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto. They were then signed to a long-term record deal with MCA and recorded the self-titled EP The Tragically Hip. The album produced two singles, “Small Town Bring-Down” and “Highway Girl.” They followed up with 1989s Up to Here. This album produced four sin-

gles, “Blow at High Dough,” “New Orleans Is Sinking,” “Boots or Hearts” and “38 Years Old.” All four of these songs found extensive rotation on modern rock radio play lists in Canada and they say the rest is history. The Tragically Hip went on to be one of the best bands in Canada over the past 25 years.

Roar of a lion, heart of a lamb By Lori Larsen

The name Larry Sharuga is synonymous with the Camrose Swans and Roses Lions Club. Often seen about town donning his bright red vest decorated with an assortment of pins, and his infectious smile, Larry’s dedication to the club is apparent by the many hours he spends promoting the Club’s generous givings to the community. Born on May 8, 1940 in Camrose, Larry was raised just east of town near Bawlf on his parent’s farm. “My parents owned the Hope Park Service station 14 miles east of Camrose on Bawlf road,” recalled Larry. “Mostly it was run by my mom because dad was busy hauling grain and cattle. We had a quarter section and didn’t have any crop, strictly pasturing cattle for people.” As a young man, Larry and a friend were walking down a street in Edmonton when he noted a sign at an Airforce recruitment office that said “The airforce needs you”. “I said to my good friend ‘Hey Brian the airforce needs us’ and we walked in there and that was that.” He ended up doing a three year stint with the airforce, from 1957 to 1960, after which he began a correspondence course for mechanics. “I went to work for John Deere in the parts department then signed up for heavy duty mechanic licence.” In 1967, he moved to Calgary to better himself and his career. “I decided to try sales and started a business selling electronic telephone answering units,” smiled Larry. When that business began slowing down Larry took on a night job as a mechanic with a Calgary based garbage company. Soon after he crossed paths with a sweet young lady, his now wife of 46 years, Gloria. In 1983, they moved back to Camrose where Larry assumed the position of shop manager for Border Paving (BP Waste), which was bought out by Laidlaw in 1986. “I stayed on looking after the garbage end of the business. But then in 1989 I went over to Border paving and worked as a mechanic for about a year.” In 1990, when the City of Camrose tendered out the residential garbage collection job, Gloria suggested the couple take a run at it. “We won the contract and started our Camrose Waste Removal business.” Two years in, Larry successfully negotiated a five year contract with the City. In 1993, Larry and

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster Larry Sharuga proudly wears the Lions vest symbolizing all the good the club does for the community.

Gloria sold the business to Laidlaw signing on as a subcontractor with the new company. “I was supposed to retire in 1998 but I was talked into continuing managing then as a driver until I officially retired in 2008.” During his time owning and operating a business in Camrose, Larry wisely decided to actively participate in community minded organizations, including the Camrose Rotary Club and the Chamber of Commerce. “I was with the Rotary for 12 or 13 years,” he said adding that he was one of the members involved in the first Wheelchair program to Mexico in 2000. “That was an interesting experience.” In 2009 the Camrose Swans and Roses Lions was incorporated in Alberta and Larry was soon on board. “Brian Kroeger, a good friend and then president, talked me into joining the Lions. After six months Brian left and Gary Cunningham took over as president and I became vicepresident.” In 2012, Larry took over as the president, and will retire as president in June of this year. Gloria has also been a very active member since the beginning. While doing great work for the community is certainly a large part of being a member of the club, Larry said it is also about the camaraderie. “I enjoy the socializing and, being retired, it gives me an objective, a purpose. “The Lions Club cut wood business was the start of it,” explained Larry. “It got us busy, gave us a reason for getting up in the morning.” From there the club

has extended their time and donations to a variety of events and local organizations including, Camrose Neighbor Aid Breakfast club, Meals on Wheels, Rose City Handivan, Lions Christmas Tree Lot and nut trays sales, the Downtown pocket Park, Project Pride, Camrose Special Olympics, Canada Day Breakfast and Camp He Ho Ha. “At first we (Lions) were donating $500 to Camp He Ho Ha and we dropped it to $250 thinking it wasn’t going locally. Then we went down there and saw the place and learned more about it and came back and boosted it to $1,000. They don’t turn anyone away–they do everything to accommodate anyone (with special needs.) It makes you feel good when you get thank you letters from Camp He Ho Ha.” Larry explained that Camp He Ho Ha has a wall with a tree painted on it that bears the names of anyone who supports the camp. “If I win the big lottery my name would go at the top of the tree for the amount that I would happily give to them,” he said mixed with pride and humility. With the recent formation of the Camrose Swans and Roses Leo Club, Larry and Gloria are happy to offer their knowledge and skills. “It makes you feel good to support people and the community. Youth need clubs to help them understand life a little better and steer them in a direction of being part of a community. It gives them goals and a feeling of good giving back to the community.”

Helpful tips for new fathers

Metro

t! e g r o F Don’t ne 17 Ju

The birth of a child is a momentous occasion in the lives of parents. First-time parents may be especially moved upon seeing the birth of their child, having never before witnessed something so profound. When the time comes for parents to leave the hospital and take their newborns home, new moms and dads take on different roles. Moms who are nursing or handling the bulk of the bottle-feeding while spending a few months on maternity leave may appear to have more opportunities than fathers to bond with their new babies. But there are many ways for new dads to bond with newborns as well. · Hold your baby as often as possible. Pediatrician David Hill, author of the book “Between Us

Dads: A Father’s Guide to Child Health,” says bonding between father and newborn has as much to do with contact as involvement. Many first-time parents are understandably nervous about holding their newborns, who seem so fragile. But newborns benefit from being held, and Hill notes that a bond will develop between father and baby if there is physical contact. · Find ways to spend time together. Fathers might not be able to pitch in at feeding time if mothers are nursing. Because newborns spend so much time being nursed and sleeping, fathers may feel as though they don’t have much time to spend with their babies each day. But any time spent with a newborn can be a time for fathers to develop bonds with their children. Time spent changing diapers can prove to be a great time for fathers to bond with their newborns. Make eye contact with babies while changing their diapers, as Psych Central, an independent mental health social network run by mental health professionals, notes that babies have a preference for eye contact.

· Spend alone time with your newborn. Fathers of newborns who are being nursed may feel like their is no ideal time to spend along with their children. But mothers, especially those who work and intend to keep breastfeeding after their maternity leave ends, can learn to use a breast milk pump so dads can bottlefeed. Learning to eat from a bottle will help babies in the long run, and dads can get some quality alone time with their newborns while bottle feeding. Fathers of babies who are bottle-fed can spend more time alone with their children, and give moms a much-needed break, without the fear of having nothing to feed them should they get hungry while mom is away. · Help your baby fall back asleep. Nursing mothers may feel inclined to wake up with their newborns in the middle of the night and let dad keep sleeping. But babies are not necessarily waking up in the middle of the night due to hunger. Some might simply need to be comforted, and dads can comfort their children just like moms can, all the while strengthening their developing bond.

Four generations of fathers in Camrose By Lori Larsen

is to build a good reputation and to give back to the community. While speaking with Ken, Cliff and David, fourth-generation six-yearold Jackson played quietly in the background, every once in a while sharing bits and pieces of the story of how he lost his front tooth on the school bus. Amazingly, the adults stop their own conversation and listen intently. It is clear that every member of this large family share equal importance. “The grandchildren (cousins) are all best friends,” said Cliff. “Mom (Iris) used to have all the grandchildren come to their house for a few days in the summer, four or five at a time.” Cliff added that the family (all of them for the most part) still get together at Christmas and most hol-

Though Ken chuckled at this comment, his contribution to the family was no less important. He was busy providing for his family by establishing a successful and equally well-known business in Camrose. Ken began Drever Agencies (Petro-Canada) in 1965 in Camrose and the business has since grown to include a number of affiliates in the Camrose area. “It has been great,” commented Cliff, Ken’s eldest son. “I started out working in the business as a child, then ended up running it. It is nice to see a generational business.” He said one of Ken’s best pieces of advice is, “If you are working, you are not spending.” David, Cliff’s son, added that one of the most valuable lessons he has learned from both grandfather Ken and father Cliff

idays. “We would pile into Dad and Mom’s house for Christmas. It was bodies deep. At one point, there were five new babies,” he laughed. Ken smiled proudly, confessing, “It’s a bit noisy, but everybody just gets along, there is no fighting or any of that.” The family also hosts a family reunion every other year at Hardisty Lake. It is clear that Ken and Iris created a family atmosphere of getting along, enjoying each other’s company and being grateful, every day, for the support and love of family. “All the children know they have a lot of support from the rest of the family and it has to be given back. We’re lucky to have good people watching our back. There is always someone around to help if you need something,” said Cliff.

Spanning four generations, the Drever boys continue a long line and solid foundation of fatherhood in Camrose. Great-grandfather Ken Drever began a legacy in Camrose in 1965 after moving from the farm in Hardisty. Along with wife Iris (passed away in 2013), the couple raised five amazing children Lynn, Judy, Vickie, Cliff and Dale. Ken’s family has since expanded exponentially to include 20 grandchildren and 42 great-grandchildren with three more on the way, all of whom still live within close proximity to Camrose. As a father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Ken has been an incredible role model. When asked what his secret is he humbly and sincerely replied, “Iris was the one who held the family together.”

Drever dads continue legacy into four generations Continued from page 18

The large family boasts not only a variety of occupations, but a sense of entrepreneurship that no doubt comes straight from the top.

On Fathers’ Day, the Drever family will have plenty to celebrate. From Ken down, generations of fathers carry on a legacy of acknowledging the importance of family.

“I am teaching my children to look up to their great-grandfather and grandfather. They set the bar with the standards they have as grandparents, parents, community mem-

bers and people in general, and I want to at least hit that,” said David. “Having children brings out the best part of myself. I want to try better, do better and be better around them.”

After spending time with just a few of the Drever family, I couldn’t help but think Ken has and continues to instill wonderful values in his ever-growing clan.

From the heart to the court CAFCL receives generous gift By Lori Larsen

With a passion for giving back to the community Align Builders, a Camrose based business since 2014, made some wishes come true when members of the business took it upon themselves to build a basketball court for the clients of Camrose Association for Community Living. After attending the past two CAFCL Charity Auctions (occurring October 25) management and staff of Align heard through CAFCL team coordinator Jen Knopf, that the organization had a basketball court on their wish list to assist in the well being

of CAFCL clients and the Summer Camp program. Board member Aaron Leckie commented on behalf of the CAFCL board. “We have a lot of corporate sponsorship that are involved in various events with CAFCL through the year including the charity auction in the fall. For Align Builders to step forward after that auction last year and do this project, we are very grateful.” CAFCL chief executive officer Esther McDonald added. “They (Align) designed it. It was their project and they made it real for us. We are honoured that they would share their resources, time

and talent for the benefit of the individuals in our services.” The management and staff of Align came together and built a dream. “We were very open to helping out with this,” said Align Builders partner Jolene Paulson. “Jen mediated between the organization and Align Builders and we were able to get this project done this spring.” On behalf of Align, partner Ben Paulson said the company believes in building communities. “We feel a responsibility to give back to the community in which we work and live. The association (CAFCL) is such a valuable asset in

our community, so when we have an opportunity to help we take it. We feel privileged to be able to provide our expertise and be a community partner.” Align supports other non-profit organizations within Camrose including KidSport, Camrose, Camrose Kodiaks and minor hockey teams and donates time to other causes such as the MS Bike Tour. The basketball court is a welcome addition to the services provided to the clients of CAFCL. Specifically designed to allow for wheelchair accessibility the court will no doubt see a lot of action. According to McDonald

the main users of the court will be the children of the Summer Camp, Leaders in Training program. “We can’t wait for the children of our summer camp program to see it,” said McDonald. Camrose Association for Community Living’s vision is that each person be an accepted and a participating community member. The organization provides services to members of the community to help develop skills and build quality of life. For more information or if you wish to donate to CAFCL and make more wishes come true visit the website at www.cafcl.ca.

Elder abuse awareness day By Lori Larsen

Coach the right stuff

My whole body is sore, yet I have a goofy smile on my face as I look back on the day. We just finished coaching two teams in a soccer tournament in one day; six games total and barely enough time to refill water bottles or have a bathroom break. But the kids were so excited to be there and that buoyed our spirits. On the way home, my husband and I pondered how we compared to the other coaches. Were we tougher on our players or more lenient? Were we more or less organized? And most importantly: how did we compare in terms of speaking positively to the kids and being good role models? I have realized that I am enjoying myself in this coaching role immensely. I wasn’t sure if we were taking on too much, to coach two of our kids’ teams together. But we knew that there was a need, so we decided that we could commit to leading the players three nights a week. We have the opportunity to show the kids that they matter. We have the opportunity to show them that they can make mistakes. We have the opportunity to show them that the harder they work, the better they get. To be a role model is a wonderful responsibility. I remember that in my youth sports days, I had some great coaches. I had coaches who pushed me farther. At one swim meet, my coach asked why I was breathing every other stroke and I responded that was how I swam at practice. He told me to try to breathe just once or twice a lap to increase my speed and his tip changed how I swam dramatically. More importantly, it made me feel valuable because he had taken the time to enhance my skills. I used to walk from swim club over to the soccer field and my coach would tell me I didn’t need to run laps because I was already warmed up. That same coach asked my parents why I couldn’t keep up after a game at a tournament (the night after a sleepover; I think I was exhausted). I remember what I took away from that conversation: that typically I was fast, had endurance, and could run that ball away from my opponents. I felt strong and tough and got back out there for the next game because I knew my coach was expecting my best. I just finished a real page turner of a book called An Invisible Thread by Laura Schroff and Alex Tresniowski. It’s the true story of an 11-year-old panhandler in New York City who asks a busy ad sales executive (Schroff) for money because he is hungry. He is a child with a drugaddicted mother and he is essentially on his own to take care of himself. Schroff walked away, then turned back and talked to him. She took him out for lunch and began meeting the child on Mondays. For three decades. That’s a lot of Mondays! She was a role model who changed his life. She took the experience of making chocolate chip cookies together and used it to teach life lessons without explicitly saying the lessons. Making cookies requires attention to detail. You get what you put in, those sorts of lessons. Every time they met, she showed him that he mattered, that he could dream about his future, and that he could have a place where he felt safe. It reminded me of the 1984 movie The Karate Kid. Mr. Miyagi arranges for Daniel, a youth who is being bullied, to compete in a karate tournament against his tormentors as long as the bullying stops, while he is training. Daniel feels that instead of being trained, he is being used for chores like painting the fence and waxing the car. It isn’t until Mr. Miyagi engages him in a mock karate match that Daniel sees that the hand and arm motions he has been learning can be applied to a fight. He has been learning after all. Every time we have a chance to be a role model, we have a chance to encourage confidence, to encourage youth not to be afraid of messing up, and to encourage kids to push themselves further so they are at their best. That’s the kind of coach I want to be.

People around the world are asked to draw awareness to the abuse some elders face and help to bring the abuse to an end by honouring World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, on June 15. By recognizing the signs of elder abuse you can be a positive force in intervening and stopping the abuse. Signs can include unexplained injuries, changes in mood, changes in behaviour or physical status, changes in weight or appetite, hygiene and increased visits to the doctor or hospital. Elder abuse does not discriminate and can affect any older adult regardless of their background, financial status, family status or physical or mental health. Theft or financial control is the most common form of elder abuse but it can also be emotional, psychological, physical, sexual or neglect. Education is key in helping to prevent elder abuse and with early intervention support can be provided. Families, friends

Cloud lingers over Trans Mountain Pipeline By Kevin Sorenson, MP, Battle River-Crowfoot

“The sun will be beating down on the Trans Mountain terminal in Burnaby this summer, but there will be few signs of sunny ways.” Those are the words of National Post reporter John Ivison as he summed up his article on the federal government’s purchase of Trans Mountain. Mr. Ivison’s characterisation is reflective of many Canadians’ sentiments including my feelings on the latest development in this saga. I, my Conservative colleagues, Albertans and many Canadians, are relieved that the federal government has finally taken some action to ensure the survival of this nationally significant project. For far too long there has been much uncertainty whether this pipeline would ever be completed. The Liberal government removed some of that uncertainty on May 29th when it announced the purchase of Trans Mountain for $4.5 billion. This does not however, mean that there will be smooth waters or sunny ways going forward as Ivison outlines. First, Canadian taxpayers are on the hook for $4.5 billion and an estimated $7 billion more as a direct result of the Prime Minister’s failure to act sooner. Kinder Morgan never asked for one dollar of taxpayer’s money. All the company wanted was certainty and that is why they gave the government until May 31 to provide some assurances. Kinder Morgan’s assets have now been sold. They are abandoning their expansion plans in Canada and taking their significant investment in this country elsewhere. They are doing so at a time when we can ill afford it as business investment in Canada has fallen by five per cent or $12.7 billion since 2015. During this same period, business investment in the US increased by nine per cent. Foreign direct investment plummeted by 42 per cent in 2016 and then a further 27 per cent in 2017. Second, there are many environmentalists who remain opposed to the pipeline and are vowing to keep up their protests that could thwart efforts to complete the pipeline. They feel betrayed by a Prime Minister who promised them he could and would effectively balance economic realities with environmental sensitives. While I strongly believe environmental concerns with the pipeline have been addressed, I can appreciate their view of duplicity on the part of Prime Minister Trudeau. Third, that sense of betrayal extends amongst many Indigenous people who believed Trudeau when he campaigned on the promise of positive politics and inclusiveness. A member of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation in North Vancouver is quoted in the Ottawa Citizen as saying, “This is the moment in history where Justin Trudeau has revealed that he never cared about Indigenous rights or reconciliation.” While this view is not universal, many do believe this is yet again another broken promise. Lastly, New Brunswickers are having a hard time understanding why the Government considers Trans Mountain to be in the national interest while they were responsible for the demise of Energy East. The Mayor of Saint John’s valid arguments regarding the importance of Energy East to both his province’s and the Canadian economy did nothing to convince the Liberal government. I sincerely wish that these many clouds would clear in the coming weeks so we may celebrate the completion of Trans Mountain. Unfortunately, I remain very skeptical about sunny days ahead.

Aurora Erickson Aurora (Constance Aurora) Erickson of Camrose, Alberta passed away on June 7, 2018 at the age of 98 years. She is survived by her children Ron of Vancouver, BC, Marilyn (Terry) of NY, and Rick (Lynn) of Edmonton, AB; her grandchildren Nels (Sohhee) of Bronx, NY, Kirsten (Nadime) of Brossard, QC, and Luke, Jamie and Blake of Edmonton, AB; her great-grandson Oliver of Brossard, QC; and her brother Harold Johnson of MN. She was predeceased by her husband Lloyd; their eldest son Bob; and her siblings Carl Johnson of MN, Margaret Johnson of Calgary, AB and Beatrice Torwalt of Leroy, SK. She is also survived by her many in-laws, nieces, nephews and cousins in Canada and the US. Aurora was born on August 23, 1919 in Grand Marais, MN to the Reverend Henry and Hannah Johnson. In 1928, the family moved to Canada where her father served in many Lutheran parishes throughout SK and AB. With these many moves, Aurora developed her art of maintaining long-term friendships which brought great joy to her life. Upon completion of grade 12 she attended the Bible school at LCBI in Outlook, SK. In 1943, she married Lloyd in Yorktown, SK and the next year, Bob was born. Once Lloyd returned from the war, they moved to Edmonton where Ron was born. In 1947, they moved west for a brief time to Mount Vernon, WA and then to Vancouver, BC where Marilyn was born. In 1956, they moved to Edmonton and Rick completed their family. While raising her family, she was active in the Woodcroft Community League teaching millinery classes in the 1960s, an art she learned from her mother. She was an active member of Mount Zion Lutheran Church and frequently shared her voice in song. In 1971, in anticipation of retirement, they bought a small farm in Kingman, AB, moving there full time in 1981, and they attended Salem Lutheran Church. They had a winter home in Mesa, AZ for 12 years which kept them quite active and they traveled frequently to visit family. In the later 1990s, they made their final moves, first to Liberty Village and then Deer Meadows and attended Messiah Lutheran Church. Aurora had a long and interesting life that revolved around family, friends and church. She will be missed, but left many wonderful memories behind. The family wishes to thank the staff at St. Mary’s Hospital who provided the wonderful care to help see her through the last month of her life. A funeral service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, June 15, 2018 at Messiah Lutheran Church. Cremation will follow the service with inurnment to be held at Sharon Lutheran Church, Irma, AB. The family requests, in lieu of flowers, that donations be made to the Multiple Sclerosis Patient Care and Research Clinic, University of Alberta; Pancreatic Cancer Canada; Sorrentino’s Compassion House, Edmonton, AB; Augustana Chaplaincy Annual Fund, Camrose, AB; or other charity of your choice.

The Farmer

Bowie receive Century Farm Award

By Arnold Malone

There are only two sources of food: one is soil and the other is water. It is the farmer who husbands the soil, plants the seeds and tends the animals that provide the wholesome food we serve and relish. At the time of Confederation, 87 per cent of Canadians were rural; that was a time when most people were in tune with farm life. Today, friends gather for brunch, some have a working lunch, those in a hurry consume fast food, the labourer has a lunch bucket and the upper class dine in splendour and it is the farmer who feeds them all. Farming is a different occupation. They complete their 45-hour week by Wednesday noon. They have knowledge about soil science, water hydrology, animal science, nutrition, mechanics, welding, carpentry, plant pathology, plant storage, food safety, animal breeding, record keeping, economics, marketing and community development. As Canadians, we would be well served if more persons had the broad skills of a farmer. Today we live in a world of specialists who know a lot about a little. The farmer is a person who knows a lot about a lot. It is for that reason that farmers are not easily fooled. Farmers know the essence of life. They know how to support themselves and how they can live without the handouts and privileges that so many others assume to be essential. They are accustomed in assisting with the beginning of life and acceptant of life’s end. Today, farms are fewer, larger and more business like, but we would be better off if more citizens had the many skills of the farm community. It is difficult to see the world whole when our occupation is a dedicated to a single piece of a complex whole. What is so unique about farmer is their independence. Most jobs require daily group consultations on how the day is to be planned and executed. Farmers are alone with their decisions. The farmer does not sit through meetings to know what should be done tomorrow, nor does he/she suffer the evaluation of others at the end of each task. Farming is a job with long hours. They exercise without a pedometer, eat hardy meals and consume fresh air. In this occupation, you sink or swim by who you are and there is no one to blame except bad luck and yourself. Today, most citizens are removed from farm life. When my life began, eighty years ago, 31.7 per cent of Canadians were farmers; today, only two per cent are. The result is: food-producers have a shrinking influence. For many citizens, food originates in grocery stores. How it got there isn’t questioned. If the shelves are bare, it is the store’s fault. Irrespective of the essential characteristic of farming, there is a widespread disregard for the industry’s base. Most prairie cities have an option to grow over marginal soil but opt to grow aggressively over large tracts of class #1 and #2 soil. The expansion of the City of Edmonton north and south on rare deep black soil is a disregard that is hard to stomach. The world population, now 9.4 billion, allows 2 billion to suffer food shortage. Yet Edmonton planners opt for the ease of bulldozing the highest grades of soil as back-fill against houses and factories. Sadly, quality soil is seen as a commodity to be bought and sold rather than a resource to be preserved. Canadians are past due for provincial and/or federal governments to assume their responsibility to protect our remaining highest classes of soils and provide a test for removing such soils from food production. Left to nature, it takes 20,000 years to produce an inch of topsoil. Cities are not allowed to expand over valued mineral deposits, but soil is sadly undervalued.

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Pictured left to right are Roger Bowie, Camrose County Reeve Don Gregorwich and Laurie Bowie. By Cody Bowie

George Bowie Sr. purchased the east half of Section 9-44-18-W4 on Oct. 2, 1901 and came here from the Kalispell, Montana area. They initially built on another quarter they had also bought around that time. The original house on the current yard was built in 1915 and it still stands in the yard four miles west of Rosalind at the corner of Highway 609 and Range Road 183. George Bowie Jr, married Ida Schneider in 1915 and Allan was born in 1916. Four other siblings followed.

In 1927, they were able to purchase their first tractor. In 1935, Allan started renting the east half from George Sr. He started farming on his own at this time, while still helping his father George Jr. Allan married Wilma Banta in 1941 and they bought this half in 1942, the same year that their son Grant was born. Roger was born in 1947. The farm expanded in 1961 with the purchase of another three quarters to the north, from the Fox family. Allan and Wilma farmed with Roger and

Laurie, until they eventually took over the farm. They are farming with Jim and his family and have expanded the cow herd further. Today we are running between one hundred and fifty to two hundred commercial cow-calf pairs and still farming the same five quarters of land. Our farm has changed a lot since the purchase in 1901 and will continue to evolve as time progresses. I would like to comment that one of the longtime farmers of this century farm at 101 years of age is Allan Bowie.

Stordahl awarded Century Farm

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Pictured left to right are Gwen Stordahl, Camrose County Reeve Don Gregorwich and Rodney Stordahl. By Gary Stordahl

On Sept. 1 1914, Ole Stordahl Jr. purchased three quarters of land in Section 13, Township 46, Range 18, West 4. One of these quarters was purchased from Ole Rogness for a total of $2,400. The land became a mixed farm, growing crops and raising livestock. Ole and his wife Rosalie raised eight children—four sons: Oliver, Walter, Carl and James and four daughters: Madeline, Florence, Helen and Ruth. In 1919, Ole and Rosa-

lie built a huge barn measuring 48 feet by 70 feet. The barn had two alleys running crossways. On the east side it had double stalls for 10 teams of horses. On the west side there was tie stalls for milk cows and pens for beef cattle and in another corner was a chicken house. The farm became the property of Ole and Rosalie’s youngest son James and his wife Doris on July 8, 1944. James and Doris had two sons: Gary and Wayne. James and his family raised beef and dairy

cattle, as well as hogs. Grain farming included crops of wheat, oats and barley. In 2001, the home quarter was transferred to Gary and Anne Stordahl. They raised a daughter, Angela and a son, Rod. On July 12, 2009 the farm was passed down to Rod and his wife Gwen, four daughters: Karli, Darbie, Shelbi and Laci, and two sons: Ty and Wade. These children are now the sixth generation of Stordahl’s to live on the original farm.

Dupen enjoys muscle under the hood By Murray Green

Ross Dupen of Camrose enjoys a car with a little muscle. That is why he drives a 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle. “It has all been re-done. It has a 396 engine with 375 horses that now pushes out 600 horsepower. I bought it in Beaumont about 15 years ago. I didn’t do a lot to it because when I got it the car was already complete,” said Ross. The Chevrolet Chevelle is a mid-sized automobile which was produced by Chevrolet in three generations for the 1964 through 1978 model years. “I’ve done some cosmetic work to it and put power disc brakes on the front, some body and paint work. It was a regular car with a 283 engine and automatic in it before and I turned it into a 396 SS with a new motor. I took out the bench seat and put buckets into it. I added all kinds of racing things to it and turned it into a four speed. It has a nitrous kit,” explained Ross. The Chevelle was one of Chevrolet’s most successful nameplates. His need for speed was developed at a young age. “I have always liked muscle cars. I was looking for another car and couldn’t find one. I really wanted a 1970 Chevelle LS6 with a 454 motor,” revealed Ross. “I had one of those when I was a kid. I could never find one and I thought that this was pretty close, so I grabbed it. I was looking for 25 years, so it was time to make a decision and take the 1967. A few years later I found my car, so now I have two of them,” said Ross, who simply couldn’t resist to add to his collection. “Actually, I have three,” he finally admitted. “I have a 1987 Buick Grand Am. I grew up with muscle cars and drag racing and I still love cars and racing.” Riding on a 115-inch (2,900 mm) wheelbase, the new Chevelle was similar in size, simplicity and concept to the standard-sized 1955 to 1957 Chevrolet models. Ross fixes as much of the repairs himself as he can. “I send some of it out. I put about $10,000 just into the motor. In total, I

put about $90,000 into it. Last time I checked it was appraised for $40,000. I won’t get my money back.” The Chevelle Super Sport, or SS represented Chevrolet’s entry into the muscle car battle. Early 1964 and 1965 Chevelles had a Malibu SS badge on the rear quarter panel. Ross installed a new vinyl roof on the car and everything on the vehicle is either black or white. “It was just a plain Jane car when I bought it and now it’s a hot rod that reflects the top of the line Chevelle.” The Chevelle SS396 became a series of its own in 1966. In Canada, sporty Chevelles continued to wear “Malibu SS” badges for the 1966 and early 1967 model years. These Chevelles were available with the same equipment as non-SS Malibu models in the U.S., and did not get the domed hood or the blackout front and rear treatment. The 1967 models received a facelift.

Large wrap-around tail lamps went into a new rear end with standard backup lights. Front disc brakes were available on all models, and a new dual master cylinder brake system incorporated a warning light. Chevrolet also added 14” wheels and a three speed automatic transmission to their line of transmissions. Ross put a lock on the front brakes so he can do a burn out on the track. The 375-horsepower 396-cubicinch V8 was dropped from the options list until late in the model year. Options included Superlift air shock absorbers, Strato-ease headrests, and special instrumentation. Four-door hardtops, dubbed Sport Sedans, were available (1966 through 1972). While similar to their Stateside counterparts, the convertible was available in the base Chevelle series, a model never offered in the United States. The Chevelle

was the basis for the Beaumont, a retrimmed model sold only in Canada by Pontiac dealers through 1969. “I like to go to shows and drive the cars around

Camrose a bit. Which car I take to shows depends on how much gas is in the car. I try to take a different one to shows to mix it up a bit,” said Ross.

Pipeline project By Lori Larsen

The recent announcement by the Canadian federal government to purchase the Trans Mountain pipeline and Kinder Morgan Canada’s core assets for $4.5 billion should have a positive affect on Camrose and area residents. In a statement applauding the move by the federal government, WetaskiwinCamrose MLA Bruce Hinkley said he is pleased that the federal government, with support from Alberta’s NDP Government, is investing in the Trans Mountain Pipeline project which will be resuming its construction immediately. “I am happy we will have access to international markets to get a fair, world price for our resource. This deal will help our government build up the things that matter to working families in Wetaskiwin-Camrose, such as our schools and hospitals. I am proud that we will balance responsible economic development with strong environmental stewardship.” The investment in the Trans Mountain Pipeline by the Canadian government will give them the power to ensure the project moves forward, protecting it from further political attacks. Accordingly, Alberta will also contribute to this announcement by investing up to $2 billion to help ensure this project goes ahead–any investment made would be converted to equity, ensuring value in return for Alberta tax dollars. Alberta Minister of Children’s Services Danielle Larivee said, “This is the first pipeline deal to Canadian tidewater since colour TVs went on sale, and no Canadian pipeline project has ever had this level of certainty. We know what this means for communities like Camrose, and we will not stop until the job is done.”

Inspiring parents of Down Syndrome twins given award By Lori Larsen

Camrosians Mindy and Nathan Felgate, like many parents, face the daily challenges of raising children, along with which comes the daily, if not hourly, joys of loving them. But Mindy and Nathan’s journey has been slightly different than most in that they have gracefully navigated, what was first deemed as hurdles, the added joys of raising two children

with Down Syndrome, Eli and Isaac. For their extraordinary devotion, the Felgates were honoured with the inspiration award of Outstanding Multiples during the National Multiple Births Awareness Day celebrations held in Edmonton on May 28. Mindy said that raising a child (or two) with Down Syndrome is wonderful and amazing because having children

is wonderful and amazing. “A mother’s love is not based on a child’s ability, but on the parent’s own ability to accept and give.” Although Mindy and Nathan acknowledge that raising a child with special needs can sometimes be hard, they admit that it is true of raising any child. They have learned that children with special needs are not people who walk around suffering from an illness, but

people who learn and do things differently. They thank the heavens every day for Eli and Isaac, and their diagnosis. TwinFest celebrated National Multiple Births Awareness Day in Canada in an effort to bring awareness that multiple births still warrant much attention due to increased risks for both mothers and babies. Celebrating multiples also raises awareness for

better support structures for multiple birth families and recognizes medical advancement which has significantly decreased neonatal mortality for multiple pregnancies in Canada TwinFest, is produced by TKOFCD, an Alberta based non-profit organization committed to building healthy communities by promoting understanding among the cultures that call Alberta home.

Vision Credit Union was successful in receiving a $10,000 grant through the Concentra Empowering Your Community campaign. Over the past eight years, Concentra has given $1.4 million to more than 130 communities across Canada. Concentra supports credit unions and cooperatives with 130 projects such as health, community development, education and environment. “Concentra’s goal through Empowering Your Community is to bolster the efforts of credit unions as powerful, positive influencers within their local communities,” said president and CEO Don Coulter. “Concentra is proud to demonstrate our commitment to co-operative values by investing in community building projects across Canada.” Vision Credit Union manager of marketing and communications Paulette Robinson submitted an application on behalf of the Camrose Association for Community Living’s (CAFCL) Kandu Summer Camp. Kandu Camp offers a wide variety of recreation, sport and craft activities for children including those with special health and developmental needs. The camp runs throughout July and August with ages seven to 17. The cost for one child to attend is $1,500. When Vision Credit Union received a grant of $10,000, they passed it on to the CAFCL board members to support the Kandu Camp.

It’s the Phone Book that never needs to hit the recycling bin… You know the ritual… Fall arrives and up to three ‘new’ phone books arrive at your doorstep. As usual, you reluctantly send each of the books from the previous year to Centra Cam Recycling Centre. (Many people, according to our research, question the reason that they need a different phone book annually) Our ‘phone directory’ is different. Content changes daily.

The content changes, seven days per week, in our remarkable, electronic “phone book.” You can place a free buy and sell ad, you can check the weather, get all breaking news and sports stories, read the Booster (or the Country Booster, or Super Booster). Check out who’s having a birthday, even do a crossword puzzle or read a joke. You might even find a new career opportunity. And, much more too! It started as a smarter phone book.

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.

Leo club members ready to serve the community avenue of socialization for its young members. “It is an opportunity for younger people who are newer to the community or didn’t grow up here to meet new friends. Being a member of a service club also gives people a purpose.” Club membership will also help develop leadership and communication skills that would be invaluable to potential employers. “I feel like I am always talking to someone over a screen,” admitted Bianic. “With being a member of the Leo Club, I get to speak

with people one on one and make connections.” In September, the Camrose Swans and Roses Leo Club will be receiving its official charter and by then will have served many volunteer hours and raised more funds for the communities they serve. “We are a passionate group and are open to ideas. We want people to feel welcome to join the club, but also feel good about being able to contribute their time and know that it has been used in a positive way

to affect change in the community. “It’s about what you can give,” said Shelby. “We would love for members to be able to come out to every meeting and event, but every contribution adds up.” If you are between the ages of 18 and 30 years old and would like to join the Leo Club or you or your organization are looking for a service club to assist with any fundraising or other events, contact the Leo Club by emailing Shelby at shelby.bianic@gmail.com.

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster Camrose Swans and Roses Leo Club president Shelby Bianic is excited the club is getting its footing. By Lori Larsen

The Camrose Swans and Roses Leo Club took flight in March of 2017 and with 10 active members and close to 15 occasional volunteer members the club is ready and willing to be of service to Camrose and surrounding area. Leo president Shelby Bianic said the club has already started doing events in and around Camrose and is anxious to do more fundraising for the community. In encouraging more membership, she said, “We want people to feel included and a part of the community. Sometimes people think they want to help or do something, but they are just one person. When we are able to get a group of people together, we are more likely to be get things to happen. We want people to be comfortable and happily welcome anyone to join.” The Leo club is geared specifically towards members ages 18 to 30 and encourages anyone from Camrose and surrounding communities to join. Presently, the club has members from Camrose, Bawlf and Strome. Meetings are held at Centra Cam (rear west entrance) and take place the second and fourth Wednesday of the month with a start time of 7:30 p.m. “Our meetings are not terribly long. We know people are busy, so we try to keep them to an hour. If people want to socialize after, they are more than welcome to.” The aim of the Leo

Club is to provide young people an opportunity to serve as positive agents of change within their communities. “It is an opportunity for our generation to make positive change,” said Bianic. “For example, if there are services or we feel there’s a need that is not being addressed for younger people, we can maybe do something about that to make it a little easier.” To date, the club has assisted with a barbecue in Bawlf, raising over $500 for the Leo Club that will be donated back to Camrose and area initiatives, raised $839 towards the Camrose Fire Department purchase of an inflatable firehouse education tool, sold popcorn during Jaywalkers’ Jamboree and have assisted the Camrose Swans and Roses Lions Club with some of their fundraising initiatives, including working the concession at the Lindstrand Auctions. “We helped the Lions Club with their Dog Walk on June 10 as well,” said Bianic, noting that while the proceeds go into the Lions account, the exposure and experience for the Leo Club members is beneficial. “The Leo Club will be having a fundraising barbecue on June 23 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. held at the Wild Rose Co-op Food Store, 4818-51 Street, to raise money to put back into the community. Another fundraiser we have is selling cookie dough.” Aside from the community contributions, the Leo Club provides another

Central Agencies Home of the Week

One-of-a-kind Valleyview home

Dalton Reum By Lori Larsen

Enjoy all the benefits of a custombuilt home with this high-end bungalow located on a stunning property overlooking the valley. From the minute you step foot into the home, you'll note quality finishes with impeccable design and stylish decor. The grand entrance with high ceilings and a superbly appointed staircase are sure to impress. Gorgeous maple hardwood floors flow throughout the main level leading from an office just off the foyer towards the open concept living, dining and kitchen. South-facing windows saturate the entire area in natural light and offer spectacular views of the valley. The living room is heightened by 9-foot coffered ceilings and will easily accommodate large gatherings. The kitchen is spectacular with custom cabinets, granite countertops, induction stovetop and oven, a huge island and a walk-through pantry, complete with its own upright freezer, to the spacious laundry room which makes bringing in groceries a breeze.

Leading off the main living area are garden doors to a large, covered deck with a built-in sound system, the perfect place to enjoy summer evenings. The oversized master suite has plenty of room for a king-sized bed and a sitting area. An amazing five-piece en suite featuring a large walk-in shower, double sinks, in-floor heating and a soaker tub is like having your very own spa. The completely finished lower level is as stunning as the main level and offers just as much living space with a huge recreation room complete with wet bar, three additional good-sized bedrooms, a three-piece bathroom, large utility room and outlets for an additional laundry room. Walk out to a huge backyard that has a one-of-a-kind feature–your own private sports court. Artificial turf means next to no maintenance and consistently beautiful grounds. A three-car garage and extra RV parking will house all your family vehicles. This gorgeous custom-built walkout located at 5612-23 Avenue, Valleyview must be seen to be appreciated and is priced at $995,000. For a personal viewing, contact Dalton Reum at:
