Loaves & Fishes COMMUNITY DINNER

Saturday, November 3, Norsemen Inn Sahakarini was established as a charity in 1979 by six Camrosians. Over the years, the dedicated local group focused on global challenges, assisting with dedicated partners to enhance water, sanitation, hygiene and education projects in Kenya, Tanzania, Nepal, India, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Brazil, Haiti and Guatemala. Sahakarini’s primary funding source is their annual Loaves & Fishes Community Dinner at the Norsemen Inn. This fall, it will take place on Saturday, November 3rd. All money raised will allow the team of compassionate and dedicated leaders to continue their work, at the grass-roots level, across oceans and continents. Sahakarini’s mission is to assist their international project partners to improve the lives of all members of their communities.

Scam alert! Fake Feds

In this Halloween week, costumed goblins and ghouls aren’t the only spooky creatures. Beware of phone calls from fake federal government agents. Last week’s column told about clicking off a fundraiser phone call. One reader sent me this note and, at my request, gave permission to quote the email. “Re: October 23 column “Your reaction was understandable. There is so much spam, scam and dishonesty out there, many people hesitate when answering their phones. “Just this Monday I had a call from our Service Canada inquiring about my application concerning CPP, etc. She had way too much of my personal information and wanted more from me. I told her if there were concerns, they could send me a letter and said good bye. I called back the number and spoke to another lady, who gave me the same song and dance. Told her I had a letter coming and said good bye. “Then I called the 800-number that I have used before for CPP and they had no record of any issues or need to contact me. When I asked for customer service or a complaint number, I was told quite rudely to phone the police. “I called Telus to ask about the number 587-756-0587 that our Service Canada called from. It is someone’s land line and Telus won’t say who. They also don’t investigate and don’t have a complaint department to handle fraudulent calls. I have contacted the RCMP anti-fraud centre, although they only gather information and do not investigate. Their website says less than five per cent of actual frauds are reported (never mind the avalanche of unsuccessful attempts). “Maybe when we get these unsolicited calls, we all should be less Canadian and less polite, and more firm.” Irony of ironies: half an hour after I read that email, I received a phone call from someone claiming to be from Canada Revenue Agency Investigations! When I suggested they send me a letter, the person hung up. (I can verify that 613-604-0847 is not a government office.) I sent a “me too!” email to the reader, who replied… “The CRA one has been around for a bit. I just tell them the RCMP will be at their door and they hang up. “This GIS offering you more money when you have CPP is a scary one. They shouldn’t know what month you made applications or for what. That should be government-only info. Not a lot of people know about the antifraudcentre.ca and it’s so busy that it’s almost impossible to get in.” So. If someone claims to be calling you from a government department–especially if they ask for information–here are a few suggestions. 1. Do not provide any information until you verify if it’s a legitimate call. 2. Ask the caller to send a letter. Any government department that deals with you should already have your mailing address. 3. Check the Government of Canada directory and phone the relevant department. Whoever responds to this public number can check if the department tried to contact you. 4. The last time I spoke with a federal government department, each person told me their name and employee number even before I asked. This could be faked of course, but if the person does not provide the information spontaneously, have your guard up. 5. A scam I once experienced started with a text message that directed me to a website where I was to provide other information. When I checked with the supposed department, I was informed that the Government of Canada does not ever send text messages to the public. 6. You may want to report the call to The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre operated by RCMP. Google “Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre” for instructions to report a scam by phone or online. I’d love to hear from you! If you have comments about this column or suggestions for future topics, send a note to Bonnie@BonnieHutchinson.com. I’ll happily reply within one business day. Your comments are completely private. Nobody but me will see your email and I won’t ever repeat anything you say unless I request and receive your permission first.

THE FINE PRINT: Letters are welcomed, but please limit them to 400 words or less and sign with first name, initial, surname, address and phone number; only the name of the 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. Conservative misinformed

First of all, I would like to commend Rob Hill on his well written article about Canada’s carbon tax. It’s refreshing to read a letter based on facts, rather than on anecdotes or emotional opinion. I, too, would like to discuss the carbon tax issue, but my comments will address the vicious, anticarbon tax misinformation campaign being waged by Conservative politicians. They state that “the average Albertan will pay hundreds of dollars annually in carbon taxes,” but the facts do not support them. Assuming the average Albertan comes from the low to middle income group, they (the wage earners) actually get rebated more than they pay in direct carbon taxes. Are the Conservative politicians being dishonest, intellectually challenged, or perhaps both? Perhaps they could enlighten us as to where they get these “alternative facts” they’ve been spouting. As Hill indicated in his letter, the carbon tax has been well supported by groups who deal in economic reality. Conservative politicians should be more concerned about science and sound economics, rather than political expediency. We can only hope they are held accountable for their campaign aimed at misleading voters. Reg Ernst, Camrose

Time is now

I suggest we are running out of time to build a just and sustainable earth. We recently were told that the next 12 years are critical. It is time we faced reality. Current world economic conditions are the result of failed political policies worldwide. Expecting the old guard or the new populists to fix things is fantasy or perhaps insanity. We live in an age where “truth” is under attack, especially when it comes to political discourse. I would suggest that to better discern what is truth we remember a few basic ideas: There are no simple answers to complex questions; we must solve our problems with the tools presently available; the response must be global in nature, but we can only act locally; our current world problems, such as climate change and the extreme gap between rich and poor happened, in large part, over the last 50 years or more and cannot be solved overnight; action to solve these problems that threaten our very existence will take cooperative action; those responsible for this situation, and/or their clones, seek to retain power or in the alternative, populist leaders world-wide pretend to have magic solutions to instantly fix the problem or deny that the problems exist; history has shown, over and over, that where

GOLF CHAMPIONS

populists take power, they do not or cannot keep their promises; many studies show that many of those who support populists, act against their own best interests; democracy is a fragile institution, and can be lost easier than it can be regained; current election campaign trends often make us believe we must choose between “ the lesser of two evils” or that we have no choice to vote for something we believe in. For example, to try to ensure a situation where one party does not control all the levers of government, as is the situation facing many Americans on Nov. 6, a Republican voter in the USA may choose to vote Democrat to keep one arm of the US government in the hands of its opponent to lessen the likelihood of fascism. The populist danger is very evident in the world today and Canada is not immune. Not voting is abstaining from your responsibility to keep alive the idea of democracy, even if it is flawed. We are facing elections in Canada and the province soon. Please get involved. Our interests have much more in common than many believe. Consider those interests carefully and think before you vote. Harry Gaede, Camrose

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Justin McCarroll shows off his roping skills to students of École Charlie Killam School during a demonstration held on Oct. 25. By Murray Green

Camrose team ropers Brett McCarroll and Justin McCarroll placed sixth during the regular season in rodeo to set themselves up to have a chance at the grand prize at the Canadian Finals Rodeo in Red Deer on Oct. 30 to Nov. 4. Justin, a teacher at École Charlie Killam School, will be making his 11th appearance in the finals. For Brett, it will be his 15th shot at the title. Layton Green of Meeting Creek finished the season on the pro rodeo tour in fifth place in the saddle bronc event. Justin Berg of Camrose finished in 11th place and will be challenging him for the title. Zeke Thurston, second, of Big Valley, also advanced to the finals. Clint Laye of Cadogan was eighth in bareback and Bashaw cowboy Jacob Stemo placed 10th. In bull riding, Layton’s brother Garrett Green of Meeting Creek came in fourth place during the season. A couple of Ponoka boys, Zane Lambert and Wacey Finkbeiner, placed third

and eighth. Lonnie West of Cadogan was ninth. Riley Warren of Stettler, Curtis Cassidy of Donalda and Erik Dublanko of Thorsby are the local cowboys in the tie-down roping event. Cody Cassidy came in fourth place and Curtis Cassidy of Donalda placed sixth in the steer wrestling event and both are vying for the national title. Scott Guenthner of Provost and Brendan Laye of Consort are hoping to have a good run as well. Rene Leclercq of Holden squeezed into the ladies barrel racing event by placing in 12th position. Shayna Weir of Ponoka and Diane Skocdopole of Big Valley will also battle for the crown. There will be six performances, one a day, at the Centrium in Westerner Park in Red Deer.

UCP Nomination Contestant for Camrose

A principal agent of serving in an elected capacity is that of hearing and understanding. Along with Shelley, an amazing friend and volunteer, I embarked on a journey across our constituency over the month of September to talk to people and gain valuable perspective on their thoughts and concerns. Our travels included Pelican Point, Meeting Creek, Edberg, Bashaw, Duhamel, New Norway, Bawlf, Daysland, Rosalind, Heisler, Forestburg, Galahad, Alliance, Hardisty, Lougheed, Sedgewick, Killam, Tofield, Viking and Camrose and many farmyards in between. We used Shelley’s RV as transportation, accommodation, mobile meeting space and as a travelling billboard. People in these communities overwhelmingly thanked us for making the effort to come out and speak to them. Thanks to an incredible team of volunteer doorknockers, many have Let’s work together accepted the opportunity to purchase a membership and to have their say to reclaim the in who will be chosen as their United Conservative Party (UCP) candidate Alberta advantage in the upcoming nomination election. We owe it to our future I have enjoyed the privilege to serve as a candidate in the last two generations to be provincial elections and have worked at the legislature for a short time. responsible stewards of These opportunities have granted me valuable campaign and political our provinces finances. experience to help us defeat the NDP in this upcoming provincial election. I operate our family business in Alberta and am on 41 days of hardearned vacation from my day job to campaign full time. I live in Camrose and was happy to contribute as Secretary to the Camrose UCP board prior to taking a leave of absence in order to seek the nomination. We need a candidate who can bring together a team of volunteers and engage people to support the UCP in our effort to form the next government making Jason Kenney our Premier. I am committed to work hard to win the Camrose seat to represent you, the constituents.

BRCF grants youth leadership canoe trip Submitted

The Battle River Community Foundation awarded a grant to Augustana Campus of the University of Alberta for the Youth Leadership Canoe Trip. The grant is from income from the Camrose Rotary Club Fund, established by the Rotary Club in 1997 as a Donor Advised Fund. A Donor Advised Fund allows the donor to consider projects annually and advise the Foundation of those it would recommend for grants from the Fund. The Club’s $100,000 contribution has supported annual grants totalling $78,826 that benefit the community while maintaining the original donation and protecting it against inflation in order to award meaningful grants in the future. The Battle River Community Foundation exists to support projects, programs and facilities, such as this, in East Central Alberta which benefit the local communities and have a positive impact on the future. Grants from the Battle River Community Founda-

tion are primarily made possible through the generosity of individual donors and organizations that have created endowment funds. The principal of these endowment funds are kept intact and the income is made available annually to support local projects and organizations. Since it was founded in 1995, the Battle River Community Foundation has granted over $5,835,000 to support community programs like the Youth Leadership Canoe Trip. To learn more about Rotary Club of Camrose sponsored projects, contact Ted Gillespie, club president at 780-672-8194.

Joy in preparing

I thought that I was being so organized. There I was, picking out materials for making a Christmas present, months before Christmas. I was even being decisive for a change. Then the store owner mentioned that the day’s date was exactly three months until Christmas. I clutched at my heart dramatically and sputtered, “You can’t say that to people!” He seemed surprised that his comment would lead to any anxiety. He said, “I thought that people liked Christmas, yet everyone gets so stressed out over it.” I thought about that as I drove home. Lots of happy occasions require a bit of work and preparation, but what a shame if we let that work and preparation take away from enjoying the event. It should be the work and preparation that make the event what it is. In a recent Reader’s Digest, there was an article about Halloween and all of the fun traditions that went into it. Author Ray Bradbury fondly recalls the hijinx his family experienced, the family costume painting night, candle dipping and taffy pulling night, and phonograph night, where they chose the scariest music. Bradbury writes that “Oh, sure, Halloween arrived. But the party was almost unimportant, wasn’t it? Preparation was 70 per cent of the mad game. As with most holidays, the getting set was sweeter, sadder, more enchanting than the stampede itself.” The magic was in the preparations, not the day itself. I think this can be said for both Halloween and Christmas. One of my favourite parts of October is the weekend before Halloween when my family gathers around our table and tries to best each other carving pumpkins. We take the pumpkin chunks removed from the eye holes and attach them onto the side with toothpicks to make into ears, and be as creative as we can. We roll out sugar cookie dough and press out ghosts, pumpkins and spooky cats. I use my mom’s “cauldron” (steam canner) and make a party punch while we’re creating. Last year, I put some plastic skulls into it where they bobbed around. I scooped out some punch and skulls for my dad and he glanced downwards at his glass and then carried on with the conversation nonchalantly, as if it wasn’t out of the ordinary to have a skull in his drink. I also made a mini cemetery, something I had wanted to do for years. My husband dumped dirt into three mounds, and I got started. It was a semi disaster after a fierce windstorm sent Styrofoam tombstones flying around the countryside (sorry, neighbours), but I sure had fun decorating the cemetery and writing in chalk “R.I.P.” and “I told you I was sick” on the tombstones. I attached some giant spiders and webbing to my walls, both inside and out, and felt pleasantly prepared for the ghoulish season. My daughter seems to be following in my footsteps when it comes to Halloween. As a kid, once I decided on what to me was a totally awesome costume, it was my costume for a few years. I was a Jem doll (like Barbie, but with more accurate body proportions) for many years and was always spraying my hair pink. My daughter likes being a witch. Last year, we had three generations of witches in our family. We found her a Supergirl costume this year, but in the end, what she wants to be is a witch and I will step aside and let her wield that broomstick. For Christmas, I love our lefse fest where three generations roll and flip our lefse for the year. We also make a list of the cookies we want to make, and work together on ginger snaps, gingerbread men, thumb print cookies and butterscotch confection. The actual days of Oct. 31 and Dec. 24 (I am Scandinavian through and through so yes, Christmas Eve is Christmas) will come and they will go, but what is the point if we haven’t enjoyed the journey to get there? The real fun of Christmas (watching little children play gleefully with new toys, extra family time, special holiday treats) can so easily get lost in the hunt for the “perfect” present. Garfield said it best in his Christmas special: “It’s not the getting. It’s not the giving. It’s the loving.”

Planning to Age in Place By Camrose Seniors Coalition

Legion Flag Day launches poppy campaign

What does it mean to ‘age in place’? How can seniors, assisted by their families, prepare to age in place? Back in June 2013, Camrose Seniors Coalition hosted the first of several public presentations on seniors continuing care in Alberta. Well over 60 people attended. This was obviously a hot topic for seniors and their families. Close to 100 attended a second presentation held in March the following year. Based on those two presentations, along with some follow-up input from seniors and their families, Camrose Seniors Coalition then successfully applied for funding from the Canadian New Horizons for Seniors program. Housed with Camrose and District Support Services (CDSS), a one-year grant received in February 2015 enabled the Coalition to contract a coordinator to work with seniors, their families, and local professionals to further explore the whole spectrum of elder care. Some might say that aging in place begins when seniors move from their homes into a facility of one kind or another. Facilities include relatively independent living such as Lodge Living (Rosealta), Seniors

Self-Contained Apartments (Heritage Manor, Parkview Place, and Wildrose Villa), or Residential Living (Deer Meadows). When more care is needed, various levels of Designated Supportive Living (DSL) or even Long-Term Care will come into play. Local options include Seasons Retirement Community and Bethany Group facilities like Bethany Meadows, Faith House, Louise Jensen Centre, and Viewpoint. Others might say continuing care begins while seniors are still living in their own homes, but need a little help to stay there. Assistance can be in the form of light housekeeping (either private or through the CDSS-funded Home Support Program), Meals on Wheels, or Alberta Health Services (AHS) Home Care, which provides the medical or personal care that many may need as they grow older. The Primary Care Network Geriatric Assessment program and AHS Seniors Outreach are also helpful, as is Service Options for Seniors (SOS). Still others will argue that ‘aging in place’ really begins well before agingrelated needs arise; that ‘aging in place’ really begins with planning. Supports for the Journey: A Planning Guide to

Aging in Place was officially launched in February 2016. Since then, hundreds of copies have been distributed. The booklet is organized according to topic-specific chapters such as Legal Resources, Financial Information, or Housing Options, each of which begins with a story and some things to think about. It contains a wealth of planning tid-bits (such as how siblings might differ when supporting aging parents), and a treasuretrove of program information. Almost all of the information is current (Seasons Retirement Community was Sunrise Village when Supports for the Journey was produced), so it remains a popular and helpful community resource. CDSS still has a few paper copies of Supports for the Journey: A Planning Guide to Aging in Place. Give us a call at 780-6720141. If we run out, the booklet is available on-line at: http://www.camrosefcss.ca/ (look for Elder Care Planning Guide in the lefthand menu, or list, on the homepage, then click to access the booklet). Folks can also call CDSS for further information about Camrose Seniors Coalition; ask for Maria or Margaret H.

Preventing the risk of falling down By Lori Larsen

Some of the most common and serious medical concerns among older people are related to accidental falls; and recent statistics indicate that in Canada, 215 older adults are hospitalized every day due to falls. In an effort to create awareness and educate people on how to prevent accidental falls that can prove not only injurious, but even fatal, a Fall Prevention campaign will take place for the month of November. Camrose Primary Care Network (PCN) reminds residents of Camrose and area that the PCN clinic is prepared every day to assist anyone, whether self referred or referred by a physician, in providing a multi-disciplinary team to assist with fall prevention. “Our fall prevention program at the PCN is created for anyone who is over the age of 65, who has had a fall or is at risk of a fall,” explained Camrose PCN nurse practitioner, Miriam Neufeld. “Falling is not a normal part of aging. A lot of people think that it is, and you are more likely to fall when you get older.” Neufeld suggested it is wise to have an assessment done to determine any risk factors that may increase the likelihood of falling, which the PCN team can then assist in altering. “We would look at things, like types of medication the individual is taking, and encourage exercise and eye exams. We look at the person as a whole and there is usually not just one thing we can do, but all sorts of things that all add up to make a big difference for the person.” Consisting of Neufeld, registered nurse and geriatric assessment lead Stephanie Loosemore, along with geriatric lead Dr. Smith, the team provides individual care and information pertaining to the person’s needs. “After referral, we do an initial triage of the individual and they are seen by either the registered nurse or myself. We can then set up an individual plan and have them meet with the PCN exercise specialist, Connie Harrison,

to work on ways to improve their physical activity.” Neufeld offered three tips on lessening a person’s chance of falling. “Stay active. It is the number one thing to do and it improves balance and strength. “We also advise people to speak up to their health care provider about concerns they may have about balance or dizziness.” “Lastly, wear good fitting, supportive footwear.” Neufeld suggested that footwear should not only fit well, but in the case of sandals have straps across the top and back so the foot is not moving around too much. “Slippers with no backs on them are not

good,” she added. “Often elderly people chose these types of slippers, because their feet are swelling and can fluctuate through the day.” Neufeld said assisting people in choosing the proper footwear is one way the clinic can help in preventing falls. With winter weather fast approaching, slippery sidewalks and parking lots pose high risks for falls. Residents are advised that proper footwear, using extra caution when walking and clearing your sidewalks of snow and ice, go a long way in preventing dangerous falls.

Family Violence Prevention Month By Lori Larsen

Rob Johnson

UCP nomination candidate – Camrose riding Farming has been a very difficult occupation this year with a late spring, dry summer, and a tempestuous fall. By the time you read this I trust that the harvest will be combined, in the bin, and the straw well on the way to being collected. It is now time to consider who will represent the UCP in the Camrose riding in 2019. I have entered the race for the nomination because I believe Alberta and our riding of Camrose needs to get BACK TO THE BASICS.

Family

Like the Oilers or Flames there are times that governments must get BACK TO THE BASICS to win, for Alberta that time is now! The basics or A B C’s of good governance are:

Education

Accountability: For our society to function democratically, government must answer fi rst and foremost to its citizens. The people of Alberta deserve to know what their leaders plan to do before they are elected, and to be able to hold them accountable afterward. Business: I believe that the best governments encourage best business practices, both in their own operations, and in the economies they govern. My intention is to be a part of a team that enables small business to thrive by emboldening the entrepreneurial spirit and work towards restoring the “Alberta Advantage”. Children: I, unlike our current administration, believe that parents are far better equipped to make critical decisions about their children’s education than the government. I also believe that much more attention needs to be given to the safety and education of children who are in the protective care of the province, as they have been neglected too long. I will also focus on how our province might improve educational outcomes in the core subjects so that our children are well equipped for life after graduation. I am seeking your support to win the nomination of the UCP for the Camrose riding. Memberships must be purchased by November 1 through either myself or the UCP website; https://unitedconservative.ca/Membership.

Family violence has the potential to affect everyone and is a concern that should be addressed by all sectors of a community. In an effort to raise awareness, educate and bring light to the disconcerting incidents of family violence in hopes of stopping it, the month of November has been proclaimed Family Violence Prevention Month. Camrose County Reeve Don Gregorwich and City of Camrose Mayor Norm Mayer signed proclamations declaring November as Family Violence Prevention Month on Oct. 26 at Camrose County council chambers. “If you aren’t personally impacted by family violence you don’t really have an understanding or an awareness of it,” said Family Violence Action Society: Camrose and District program director Sheralyn Dobos. “Family Violence Prevention Awareness Month is meant to bring it in front of people to say it is a real social issue and that it is here and affects many families and individuals in our community.” Family violence is not discriminatory, nor does it only happen in specific locales. It is a concern for all communities including Camrose and surrounding county communities. “We have almost 400 women and children coming through our shelter every year,” said Camrose Women’s Shelter executive director Nora-Lee Rear. “Last year our stats were up quite a bit. For the Women’s Shelter the situation is getting worse and families are coming in with more complex needs.” Rear also indicated that the new Community Outreach worker, who only works with families within Camrose, has been very busy working with families /individuals within Camrose that do not necessarily seek shelter but require the extended services. “There tends to be an impression that the Shelter is bringing people from the

outside,” noted Rear. “But the shelter is very busy working with families/individuals within Camrose.” Dobos stated that the Family Violence Action Society provides individual counselling and group programs for about 175 men and women annually, to help them break the cycle of violence and abuse and more than 100 children and youth annually, are provided individual counselling or group programs supporting mental health and wellness. The Family Violence Action Society also offers an ongoing support group for men who have completed the Changing Ways program for men wanting to change abusive behaviour and attitudes in their intimate partner relationships. “Our group programs have a mix of people who are voluntarily attending and people who have been mandated by the courts,” said Dobos. She remarked that she finds that, someone who is using abusive behaviour in their relationship and voluntarily comes into the program because they want to change their behaviour and make things better, is especially encouraging. “It warms my heart because these people (voluntarily seeking services) could wait longer until things get worse and the courts do mandate. But if they are being proactive, having courage to ask for help before it is imposed on them, they are miles ahead.” Dobos noted that the group is delivered in a manner that is not only strictly confidential but highly supportive. “Maybe more men would participate voluntarily if they knew this men’s group does not judge and/or shame participants. All of that gets left at the door. Participants experience a group culture that recognizes most of them have experienced trauma of their own, often in childhood. Essential elements of the group include creating a safe space for honest self-reflection, supporting changes in beliefs, acquiring healthy relationship skills, and creating accountability for choices and actions.” Dobos said that the objective of the men’s group is to provide hope that change is possible and learning is possible. “It is important that our community come together and shine the light in the darkness.”

“Family violence is not a private issue; it impacts all aspects of our community,” remarked Family Violence Action Society Camrose and District program director Sheralyn Dobos. “If the issue is ignored, it grows exponentially with each generation. Helping communities to understand the issue and their part in ending the cycle is one step closer toward a solution.”

This year’s guest speaker Mariann Rich was a registered nurse for 35 years and taught undergraduate nursing students in Alberta for almost 20 years. Mariann shares her story of losing her oldest sister to domestic homicide four years ago. This horrific tragedy changed Mariann’s thinking about intimate partner abuse, both professionally and person-

ally, which has led her to become an advocate in helping to end domestic abuse and increase awareness through her own heartbreaking experience. For more information on the event or the Camrose Women’s Shelter or to obtain tickets to the event, telephone 780-679-4975 extension 8.

The Battle River Big Band is returning for a concert at the Bailey Theatre on Saturday, Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m. Over the past three years, the Battle River Big Band has added a show close to Remembrance Day, but this year’s concert will include music from yesterday and today. “This year, we decided to feature a lot of soloists within band. We want to showcase their individu-

al talent along with the entire band,” said Dennis Rusinak, artist director. “The band members pick a song they like and want to perform to impress the crowd. It will be a song that speaks to them and they want to share with the audience.” Some of the 19 members will take the spotlight for a song to highlight the talent that is in the Battle River region. “Wherever the Battle River flows, that is where

we are from. Music will be from the 1930s to brand new material right off the charts,” shared Dennis. “We are doing some pretty ambitious solo work. Tova Olson, Camrose’s favourite piano player, is doing a monstrous production of a Stan Kenton piece of music that takes some impressive playing.” It is a brand new show for the Battle River Big Band, an evening of fresh, new concert jazz material

played for the first time at the Bailey Theatre. “We’ve searched far and wide for music by some of the hottest arrangers and composers that we’ve brought back to life. The big band has never sounded better. We’ve worked up great solo and section feature items for the band to share with our fans for a wonderfully memorable evening with songs made famous by such musical icons as Kenton, Frank

Sinatra, Chuck Mangione and Nat King Cole.” Battle River Big Band is also planning a concert at the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre. “It will feature the music from James Bond movies and Henry Mancini (Pink Panther and others). That is a real undertaking. We are going to have an eight-member chorus with us singing the great tunes,” shared Dennis. Look for that concert to be held next February.

Square dancing has been around for centuries and some say it can be dated as far back as the 1600s to English ancestry. It is not only a wonderful way to meet people and be part of a “reel”y good time, it is also a great way to stay in shape. “Square dancing is a melting pot of the dances which our ancestors brought with them when they settled this nation. It was flavored by the enthusiasm and spirit which once flowed from this young untamed country,” remarked Camrose Rose City Swingers Square Dance Club member Darlene Delhomeau. When immigrants first came to Canada, they settled in concentrated areas, keeping dances and customs in pure form. But as descendants began moving outward and settling in other areas, those customs

and dances took on influence from other culture and background. “The eventual result was a kind of North American folk dance, which now includes many of the best features of all other dances,” explained Delhomeau. “For example, the circle dances of the mountains stemmed from various parts of America, precision square dancing (quadrills) came from the French, and the English contributed their line dances (contras).” Also included were the mixers from old time programs, where partners changed during the dance. Couple dances such as polkas and waltzes were also added and the grand march was used to officially start the night of dancing. “As the population increased and moved west, these dances became westernized,” said Delhomeau.

“Styles and terminology began to vary according to the region. By the 19th century, it became a blended square dancing with definite characteristics.” In the early 1900s, square dancing began to disappear. Then, 25 years later, a new interest in the dance saw its revival. As a result of improved transportation and newer advanced technical sound equipment, callers of the dance were able to teach more people in the craft of calling square dancing. “Square dancing has quickly developed and become very modernized and standardized,” said Delhomeau.

Telemetry takes dance to a new level By Murray Green

Shay Kuebler and his Radical System Art takes routine dance moves and throws them out the window. His Telemetry show raises the bar of dance art to a whole new level of artistic impression. Kuebler’s Telemetry will be on the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre stage at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 9. He uses the human body as an antenna, a satellite for sound, energy, memory, translating and transmitting information into a purely kinetic vocabulary – this is the starting point for an explosive new dance creation

from Vancouver’s high octane choreographer Kuebler. A convulsive synchronicity of bebop, swing and contemporary dance, Telemetry tunes in to radio sciences and systems to generate a magnetically charged performance from its hugely versatile company of seven dancers. Kuebler originally grew up in Edmonton and is proud to bring his critically acclaimed hit to Camrose. He began his artistic development in dramatic arts and martial arts at the age of five. His early artistic growth would lead to a versatile background in numerous forms of dance, theatre and martial arts. Kuebler continues to develop and further

his artistic practice through travel and intensive study, which has included study in music, theatre, dance and martial arts in the USA, Canada, Brazil, Japan and China. His skills as a choreographer, director and performer have reached film, television and the stage, crossing many genres from contemporary dance and theatre all the way to aqua and circus performances. His early studies in martial arts, theatre and dance have lead him to continually develop and pursue versatility and diversity as an artistic asset, enabling a greater ability to approach each new project with skill and artistry.

Ringing bells will be heard and gravesite flags will fly to commemorate Armistice 100th anniversary. The HMCS Carleton Naval Bell, the Royal Canadian Legion in partnership with Veterans Affairs Canada launched Bells of Peace in Ottawa on Oct. 24. The initiative honours the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended the fighting in the First World War. At the setting of the sun on Nov. 11 this year, the Parliament Hill carillon along with spiritual centres, Legion branches and many community locations across the country will ring their bells 100 times. “This powerful sound symbolizing peace from coast to coast will allow Canadians to stop, remember and feel the joy that the end of war brought after so much death and destruction,” said Legion Dominion president Thomas D. Irvine. “It will also be a reflection of the deep respect we hold for our many veterans who served in the First World War and for those who continue to serve our country today.” Bells were rung when the war ended. “A century ago, celebratory bells rang out across the world to mark the end of the First World War. This Nov. 11, the Peace Tower bells in Ottawa will ring, as will those in Mons, Belgium, the final town liberated by the Canadian Corps in 1918. We will honour those who served Canada, past and present, by ringing these Bells of Peace as symbols of victory, relief and joy on the 100th anniversary of the Armistice,”

said Seamus O’Regan, Canadian Minister of Veterans Affairs and Associate Minister of National Defence. “As the bells toll, we will reflect on the Canadian Armed Forces members who continue to defend the peace and freedom we enjoy today, carrying on the tradition of those who have served so bravely since the First World War.” On Nov. 11, 1918, when news of the Armistice broke, churches across Canada responded by spontaneously ringing their bells. The bells will honour the more than 66,000 Canadians and Newfoundlanders killed, the over 172,000 wounded and the countless others who suffered invisible yet painful wounds. As part of the initiative, and leading up to Remembrance Day, youth across Canada are invited to place small Canadian flags on the gravesites of First World War Veterans in as many locations around the country as possible. On Nov. 11 at sundown, the Bells of Peace will ring across the country, beginning in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, and ending on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. These two locations in Canada, and others in between, played key roles during the First World War. Each of them will hold additional commemorative activities on Remembrance Day. At the Ottawa launch event, Canada Post Corporation also unveiled its newest commemorative stamp, which marks the Armistice with symbolic images of struggle, peace and remembrance: barbed wire, a dove and a poppy.

The CAMROSE BOOSTER, October 30, 2018 – Page 25

Anderson runs for UCP candidate to help everyday people By Murray Green

Dawn Anderson is running for the candidate position of the United Conservative Camrose Constituency because she wants to make a difference.

“I want people to get to know me as a person, so they can feel comfortable and trust me. I don’t have a political background, therefore it is important for people to keep an open mind in how my current career background lends extremely well to serving in an MLA capacity. I have compassion for people, and a wish to learn and understand their concerns even if they don’t mirror my concerns,” explained Dawn. “Going into this process, I don’t have my own agenda. I think that is very important for someone running for an MLA position. My issues and concerns aren’t at the forefront. It should be about the issues or concerns that are from the people in the constituency that I would be representing.” People have opinions and concerns on current hot topics such as higher minimum wages, and carbon tax, etc. and so does she. “If someone asks me if I have a problem with the current public education system, I would have to say no. Personally, I don’t and my child seems fine. He seems to be getting the attention he needs and the teachers appear to be doing their jobs well. But if you have concerns, then I want to hear those concerns. That’s what I need to know to bring forward to the appropriate people,” she said. “What I want to do is make a difference. We have 87 MLA’s in our province and one of them is going to be the premier. We will have a new direction because it is a brand new political party. The United Conservative Party doesn’t intend to bring out their entire platform until the end of November I have heard. Most of the candidates will be picked at that point, so we don’t know what some of the stances will be for sure until then,” shared Dawn. You have to run the province with the economy in mind. That doesn’t mean social issues take a back seat, they have a solid place in

the passenger seat helping us reach our destination, but you can’t run a province with that in the forefront,” added Dawn. “I believe if I put my mind to it, I can do anything. I have lived in Camrose for the past 10 years. Over the last decade, I’ve proven my support for my community by being on numerous boards and committees. I love it here in Camrose and I don’t want to leave.” When Dawn decided to run for the UCP candidate position there were approximately 1,200 members in the Camrose Constituency. “It is amazing that such a huge decision, as to which person gets to advance as Candidate, comes down to such a few people. My goal of selling many memberships is because I believe more people should have a say and play a part in who should be the next candidate,” she said. “I believe my message is quite clear and the most personal.” She aspires to be transparent about ourselves, our strengths and weaknesses. “Everything I have experienced, great and not so great in my life, has made me who I am today. I have always held the belief that everything happens for a reason. We grow and learn continuously.” Due to the death of both her parents, she has lived on her own since the age of 15. “I have worked full time supporting myself ever since. I’ve never been afraid to venture off on my own and try new things; therefore, in my teens and early 20s I worked all over as a gas jockey, housekeeper, busser, dishwasher, seismic hound, waitress, bartender and telemarketer.” She gratefully found her current home here in Camrose and at the Camrose Resort Casino. “I got a call from Stagewest Hospitality looking for a general manager to oversee their property in Camrose. The rest is history.” Keeping with her theme of everything happening for a reason, the opportunity to work in Camrose is one of those wow moments. “My career was on a much different path, working in bigger cities, overseeing multiple projects. When the offer came up to come to Camrose, it was a small step back in my plan for the future as it was a single facility. That being said, it is one of the largest employers in the city and still afforded me a respectable salary–enough to settle myself and son nicely into the community. I have grown to love Camrose and the many surrounding communities, having visited quite a few through my volunteering and my son Gavin’s sports.” Phone Dawn at 780-7815858 to discuss issues, or to purchase a membership by Nov. 1.

Bottle depot moves to larger spot By Murray Green

Starting on Nov. 1, you will have to take your recycled bottles to a new location in Camrose. Exactly 32 years to the day, the Universal Bottle Depot opened at its location across the railroad tracks. “We needed a larger location simply because we outgrew our old spot. We will

have better equipment and more space to serve customers,” said owner Grace Torpe. The bottle depot will be opening on Nov. 1 at 381447 Avenue, a block south of the Marada Hotel and a block east of Hi-way 13 Transport. “We’ve seen many changes in the industry in

the past 32 years. We are going to have space for a drop-off area, where fundraising groups can drop off items from a bottle drive.” The family owned business has been known to hire youth and teach them about the dedication and service before they move on.

government. “People seem to be worried about vote spliting. My answer to that is it isn’t called vote splitting if you win. They call that winning the election,” said Hansen. “One of my interests in policy would include mental health support and research. I think mental health has become an enormously important area. The impact of depression alone on our health system, criminal justice system, families, economy is huge. If we could address that more, It would have a profound impact on the way we all live. Hansen graduated from Camrose Composite High School, went to Augustana Campus and the University of Alberta. He is the vice president of the Camrose Regional Exhibition and is a founding director of the Nordlys Film and Arts Society (and emcee for nine years). “I’m involved in music and have a music degree. I play the piano and write music in my spare time. I’m an avid gardener and like to sharpen my amateur cooking skills when I get the chance.” To discuss local issues, or for more information, email him at stevenhansencamrose@gmail.com or phone 780-271-7818.

The nomination process for the Alberta Party begins on Nov. 3 at 7 a.m. and closes on Nov. 17 at noon. The nomination committee will view the applications from Nov. 18 to 20. A candidate selection meeting will be held on Dec. 1 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Norsemen Inn. Voters have to obtain a membership at least 48 hours prior to the selection process on Dec. 1 in order to be eligible to vote.

Alberta Party timeline

Your partner in

Camrose lawyer Steven Hansen is seeking the Alberta Party nomination for the Camrose riding for the 2019 provincial election. Although nominations haven’t been called for yet, Hansen knew the Alberta Party was the right fit for him. “The reason I’m seeking the Alberta Party nomination, is because I don’t think the 2019 provincial election should be about left wing verses right wing; it should be an opportunity for voters to approve good ideas and reject bad ideas, regardless of where they come from,” explained Hansen. “I’ve become disenchanted with the left and right wing partisanship. I see the Alberta Party as an opportunity to re-engage meaningful debate.” Hansen wants to focus on ideas that help people do the things they want to do. “I think it is a good idea to reduce barriers for businesses, entrepreneurs and farmers. Let farmers be farmers. I think it is a good idea to dial back the $9 billion a year deficit, while still committing to high quality essential health care and education, especially in rural Alberta,” added Hansen. “In the long term, it is critical to balance the budget. In the short term, trying to trim $9 billion out of a $56 billion budget isn’t going to happen overnight. I think it is a bad idea to turn to the policies of the 1990s, expecting a return to prosperity. Times have changed and the world economy is much different. We need to look at what is going to work from 2019 and on, and not the past,” said Hansen. Hansen has grown up in Camrose and has worked in the region for the last four years. “As a business lawyer, I have clients throughout the constituency. I’ve heard a lot of feedback on how hard it is out there for business and farmers.” He thinks the Alberta Party will be a solid alternative to the current

High school holds awards night By Lori Larsen

Join École Camrose Composite High School in honouring the extraordinary achievements of students at the Awards night held on Nov. 23 at 5:30 p.m. at the ÉCCHS Student Commons area. Members of the community are invited to come out and celebrate students’ success. Last year’s Grade 12 graduates used the application process to speak about their hopes, dreams and how they have been able to discover their capabilities and talents as students of ÉCCHS. This year’s award program features stories of students James Rostad, Liam Schaffner, Graham Walger and Robyn Wegner. James shares his continual journey and continued growth through education. “As I have dived deeper into exploring human global connections in social studies, continuing arts, music, writing and exploring drama, I’ve fallen in love with seeing it stir up joy in others. To put it short, the joy of being taught has developed into the joy of teaching others.” Liam shares some of his most memorable moments at ÉCCHS. “One moment that really stood out for me at school was getting pushed by Miss Gee to do my absolute best on my chemistry

exam. She spent free time allowing me to sit with her and go through past exams to help me understand the course. This resulted in my diploma mark exceeding my term mark. Being as happy as I was, I told Miss Gee and was given a big hug and congrats.” Liam is now a student at NAIT. Graham noted that working with Trevor Doig, Howard Elliott and Kevin Nagy through ÉCCHS provided him with a wonderful opportunity to f lourish and expand his passion in the trades. “The CTS courses opened my eyes and gave me first-hand experience to getting me interested in pursuing a career.” He is attending NAIT and is one of the two recipients of the Alair Home scholarship for the trades. Robyn also appreciates the broad range of programs the high school has been able to offer. “I decided in my senior year to join student council. It was one of the best decisions I made socially. I enjoyed athletics, stained glass and excellent music programs.” During the awards ceremony, guests will have an opportunity to hear about the many successes students at ÉCCHS have experienced.

Olsen revives an original classic 1960 Impala By Murray Green

Bruce Olsen revived his 1960 Chevrolet Impala because it brought back memories of his dad’s vehicle. “The car was bought in Saskatchewan in 1960. The man of the house passed away in 1966 and the lady didn’t drive. They parked it in a shed until about 2004 when she passed away. He must have been a young man,” explained Bruce. “The children were going to sell the car and had it on a trailer at the Olds Tim Hortons when my cousin, who drives big trucks, saw it. He talked to them and ended up buying the car,” recalled Bruce. His cousin drove it from Olds to Cranbrook, BC where he stored it in a C-can. “My wife and I were out there about five years ago during a vacation and saw the car in the C-can. My dad had a similar car, a 1959 model, so I had an immediate attachment to it. I told him I wanted to buy it and eventually he sold it to me.” Bruce didn’t have to fix a lot on the car. “I painted it because the front fender was faded. It must have been where the window allowed the sunshine on it. Honestly, the rest of the car was very good.” That didn’t stop him from taking a closer look. “I pulled off all of the chrome and took the rugs out and I couldn’t find any rust. We were lucky that they hadn’t

LOW MILEAGE

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Bruce Olsen of Camrose couldn’t resist this 1960 Chevrolet Impala when he saw it at his cousin’s house. It had low mileage, (about 50,000 miles), so he didn’t have to repair a lot to the vintage automobile.

driven it. My new truck has more rust than this car.” The Impala has only 50,000 original miles on it. “It is a six cylinder, three on the tree. What makes it more rare is the fact that the Impala is only a six cylinder with the three-speed transmission. They made a Biscayne, a Bel Air and

FUN FACTS

For its debut in 1958, the Impala was distinguished from other models by its symmetrical triple taillights. The 1959 Chevrolet Impala was redesigned. Sharing bodyshells with lower-end Buicks and Oldsmobiles as well as with Pontiac, part of a GM economy move, the Chevrolet’s wheelbase was 1-1/2 inches longer. Using a new X-frame chassis, the roof line was three inches lower, bodies were two inches wider, and curb weight increased. Its tailfins protruded outward, rather than upward. The taillights were a large “teardrop” design at each side, and two slim-wide nonfunctional front air intake scoops were added just above the grille. The 1960 Impala models reinstated three round taillights on each side, and a white band running along the rear fenders. The available V8s were reduced to 283-cubic inch or 348-cubic inch displacements. The carbureted Turbo-Fire 283 cubic inch V8 could have either 170 or 230 horsepower (130 or 170 kW).

an Impala. Why would you order an Impala and then have no equipment (larger motor).” Many of the features on older cars were options back in the day. “There are no rear view mirrors on the car. I didn’t take them off. The only mirror is in the middle of the car on the front windshield. People ask me why I shaved the mirrors, but it didn’t have any.” The no frills car was an economy vehicle back when the price of gas was low. “It has no power steering, no power brakes, it is just a basic car. My dad’s 1959 had a 283 motor with a two-speed powerglide in it. That is nicer, but the three on the tree is different. Most people don’t know what that is or how to drive it. I don’t like that and I wish it had power steering and a stick, but I’m not going to change it. I’m keeping it original. I don’t mind the six cylinder because it is good on gas.” At first, Bruce didn’t drive it a lot either. “Two years ago, I drove it from

the garage home and parked it. This year, I’m driving it more.” You could tell the car was well looked after and parked out of the elements. “It had seat covers on it. I pulled the seat covers off

and the seats were perfect. I had to repair the driver’s side door arm rest because it was cracked. I’m an old Chevy guy, so this caught my eye and the fact it is very close to the 1959 we had.”

THE NYBACK TRADITION CARRIES ON I HONESTY • INTEGRITY • SERVICE

f you’re an RV owner looking for a shop that can repair anything and everything, you will want to call Nyback RV Centre. Owners Matthew Graham and Ron Nyback, grandson and son of the company’s namesake, Lawrence and Doreen Nyback, have the knowledge, training, equipment and experience to do what it takes to get your RV running smoothly and looking good. Matt is a journeyman heavy duty mechanic, Ron is a journeyman RV technician. Between them are decades of experience. No job is too big or too small. They can re-upholster, install and maintain plumbing, put on new siding, repair collision damage, restore and refurbish, fi x electrical issues, generators, computerized systems and diesel engines. They know their way around hydraulics, which are critical to the functioning of slide-outs and leveling systems. They have never been stumped, although they admit to having had a couple “big head scratchers” which took some late nights to get done just right. This dedication Sheila, office manager to getting and receptionist, greets the work you with a smile.

done just right comes naturally. Both of them started working in the Nyback shop for Lawrence and Doreen when in their early teens, doing odd jobs on weekends and during their summers, learning the trade, and developing a work ethic. A couple of years ago, knowing the community needed the service, they got together and decided to start the business and resurrect the name of Nyback RV Centre. They had the skill set and liked the idea of family legacy. “We bought the name from Grandma for $1,” says Matthew. “We wanted to make sure we had her blessing.” They haven’t looked back. The business has grown by 50 per cent each of the last three years. “We have quite a few snowbirds who take their RVs down south,” says Ron. “They talk to others where they’re staying and word of our good work gets spread around.” They have customers from Edson, Fort McMurray, High River, Rocky Mountain House, Maclin and all points in between. Another big reason for their success is their belief in honesty, integrity and service. This too they learned from Lawrence and Doreen, who started Nyback RV 50 years ago. A lot has changed over those 50 years. Diesel engines are getting more complicated, computer systems were introduced, as well as hydraulic systems. Diagnostic equipment now includes scanners and the team at Nyback works hard to stay current. In addition to Matthew and Ron, they have two other technicians in the shop, which can hold up

Matthew Graham and Ron Nyback will take care of your RV

to six units, and a receptionist/office manager. “We want to do whatever we can to make our customers’ RV life more friendly and user friendly,” says Ron. They repair and refurbish every kind of RV and also work on cargo trailers and dump trailers. If you want your RV to be in tiptop shape before you travel south or put it away for the winter, give the team at Nyback RV Centre a call.

Men’s Cooking Circle has participants whip up recipes, friendships

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster Dennis Wishnowski whips up a batch of fish for one of the recipes during the Hospice Society of Camrose and District Fish and Seafood Night of the Men’s Cooking Circle. By Lori Larsen

The Hospice Society of Camrose and District, in partnership with Alberta Health Services, The Open Door and community facilitators, Men’s Cooking Circle is in it’s second year of assisting Camrose and area men through the process of grieving while teaching them essential skills on cooking and nutrition. During the seven-week program, men who are mourning various losses in their lives join in fellowship once a week to cook, eat and share conversation. “The average age for this group this time is about 50 years old and we have participants from Camrose and area,” explained Hospice grief and bereavement and program coordinator Bill Harder. “There is a commonality of sor-

row, but it wears different clothing.” While starting out as somewhat strangers to one another, through the duration of the program, the men build a connection by coming together around the kitchen table, a tradition that has stood the test of time. During this session, five amazing men scurried around the kitchen, reading recipes, mixing and measuring ingredients and stopping for occasional assistance from the program’s two volunteers, chef Judy Hazlewood and professional cook Evalynn Ross, and even took time out for a few good laughs. The next Men’s Cooking Circle session is due to run in February 2019. To register, telephone Bill at 780-608-0636, or email camrosehospice @ gmail. com.

Diane Koetke April 14, 1947 ~ October 20, 2018 Diane Koetke of Vegreville, formerly of Camrose, passed away peacefully on Saturday, October 20, 2018 at the age of 71 years. Diane was born on April 14, 1947. She was raised by her parents Mike and Annie Marko, along with her siblings Ethel, Rosie, Angie, Bernie and Peter, in the Holden area. On May 22, 1965, Diane married Alvin Koetke and within this union they raised three children, Rodney, Susan and Charles. Anything Diane touched, she turned to gold. She had the ability to see the best in everything and everyone. Some of her favorite pastimes included gardening, baking, cooking and crocheting. She loved spending time with family, playing with her great-grandbabies, and finding treasures to share with all of them; she never was empty handed. Our Baba’s love was one of a kind. She was like no one else; always generous, thoughtful and caring. She was a combination of warmth and kindness, and laughter and love. She was loved beyond measure and will be with us in our hearts and cherished memories for the rest of our lives. Words cannot express how much she will be missed. She is survived by her children Rodney (Crystal) Koetke, Susan (Ernie) Steil and Charles Koetke; her grandchildren Jessica (Aaron) Sellin, Dale (Candace) Steil, Angie Koetke and Randy Koetke; and her great-grandchildren Payton, Broderick and Malina; special friend Tony; best friend Lorna Naslund; and siblings Rosie Slipchuk and Bernie Marko. A private family service has been held. If family and friends so desire, memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to the Camrose Food Bank (4524-54 Street, Camrose, AB) or to the charity of one’s choice.

Rudy O. Sund April 1929 ~ October 2018 “Life is a daring adventure and getting old a privilege.” Having lived the good life, Rudy Sund of Leduc, formerly of Camrose, was content to return to the eternal cosmic stardust we have evolved from. The son of a Swedish mother Anna and Norwegian father Ottar, he was born in April of 1929. He was not a Viking, but ventured into many careers including logging, railroading, construction, architecture, marketing, finance and real estate. Earlier in life, along with his younger sister Carol (Patterson), he grieved the loss of brother Vernor (7 years) and brother Roger (33 years). Rudy is grateful for his first wife Sonja who blessed their union with sons Douglas and Murray; daughters Janine and Gail (Joe Sullivan); and grandchildren Cara, Jesse and Tayler. In latter years, he was able to retire early with his second wife Mavis (daughters Cathy and Linda and son Dave) to California to escape the harsh Alberta winters and enjoy summers in Camrose. Rudy was able to enjoy golf, swimming, many a good hands of cards, and also authored a weekly column in the Coachella Valley Desert Song. Rudy travelled often, walked many beaches, strolled the Great Wall of China, dined at the Casbah in Tangiers, cruised the Norwegian fjords and is now one with the Universe. A celebration of life has been planned for the summer of 2019 at Vasa Park, Pigeon Lake. Peace to you all.

Jean Briault Jean was born on August 25, 1926 in Edmonton, the youngest of four daughters of Arthur and Clara Bowen, and raised on a farm in the Merna District south of Sedgewick. She is predeceased by her parents; sisters Gladys (Jens), Bernice (George) and Iris (Walter); her first husband Harry Van Dyke; and second husband Alphonse Briault. She was also predeceased by stepdaughter Geraldine Altemus (Van Dyke); grandson Brent Jackson; nephews Keith Sorensen and Eric and Lyle Christensen; stepdaughter Lorraine Briault; and son-in-law Alvin Paproski. She attended schools in the Sedgewick area and completed a secretarial program at Camrose Lutheran College (now University of Alberta Augustana Campus). Jean worked in banking and secretarial positions before her first marriage to Harry Van Dyke in 1949. They raised four children and lived in Wetaskiwin, Edmonton, Calgary, Lethbridge and Camrose. Upon Harry’s sudden passing in 1968, she and her two sons moved back to Camrose where she lived until last year. Jean married Alphonse Briault in Camrose in 1973, bringing many new additions to her family. After his retirement in 1979, Alf and Jean embarked on a fulfilling European vacation. This began a new stage of Jean’s life where she would explore many parts of the world visiting her adult children in various locations such as New York, Arizona, Hawaii, Texas, the Caribbean, Europe and the Middle East. In addition to travel, Jean loved reading, creative writing, walks around Mirror Lake with her friends and neighbours at Hillside, camping and, most of all, good visits with loved ones – family and friends. Jean embraced the internet, email and Facebook after being given a computer in 1999 and was fearless tackling technology. She enjoyed many hours exploring this new world and was undaunted in her endeavours. For the seasoned world traveler she became in her later years, her roots were still firmly planted in the Alberta countryside she loved. She enjoyed both the finer and simple pleasures in life such as a decadent chocolate treat, a drive in the countryside on a sunny afternoon, and a good strong cup of tea. Jean is survived by her daughter Nadine Jackson (Fernie); sons Murray Van Dyke (Kathy) and Mark Van Dyke (Elizabeth); grandchildren Randall Jackson, Mehgan Paproski, Anthony Paproski, Gerrit Van Dyke (Raquel) and Hanneke Van Dyke (Andrew Williams); daughter-in-law Karen Willfahrt; son-inlaw Ed Altemus; and many nieces and nephews. She is also survived by stepson Jacques Briault (Muriel) and was “Grammy” to grandchildren Trevor Briault (Jaclyn), Tracy Graham (Bryan); great-grandchildren Reegyn Graham, Evyann Graham, Britnee Baker (Stephen), Kennedy, Scarlett and Jorja Briault; and greatgreat-grandsons Adrian and Roman Baker; and friends in Camrose and her special friend Linda O’Bertos in Prince George. She is also survived by stepsons Lawrence, Ehman, Clifford (Jackie), Terry (Debbie) and Leon (Judy); and many other grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Jean passed away in Prince George, BC on Saturday, October 20, 2018 following a brief illness. Prince George Funeral Home was in charge of cremation arrangements. A memorial service is being planned at Bethel Lutheran Church, Camrose for May 2019 with a private inurnment the following day. Date and time will be shared when they are finalized.

Honouring Canadian war history By Lori Larsen

The chronicles of Operation Chastise, the historical bombing raid against the hydro-electric dams of Germany’s Ruhr River during the second world war, are about to unfold for Camrose and area residents during a thought-provoking weekend of events to be held at the Bailey Theatre, Nov. 8 and 9. The Bailey Theatre and The Camrose Booster will be presenting WW2 History beginning Thursday, Nov. 8 at 7:30 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.) with the screening of the 1955 movie The Dam Busters. The film follows the tale of Barnes Wallis, an inventor who spawned the

idea to use spinning cylinders filled with high explosive to destroy a series of German dams in an effort to paralyze Germany by taking out sources of electrical power. The second part of the film covers the story of the Royal Air Force’s 617 Squadron and the specially trained aircrew tasked with turning Wallis’s idea into a reality. Many of the pilots and crew were Canadians, that played not only an integral, but in some cases life sacrificing, part in the outcome of the second world war. On Friday, Nov. 9 at 7:30 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.) at the Bailey, join award-winning Cana-

dian author, journalist and broadcaster, Ted Barris as he speaks about his book The Dam Busters: Canadian Airmen and the Secret Raid Against Nazi Germany. Barris’s book and presentation are based on personal accounts, flight logs, squadron war diaries, maps, and photographs of the Canadians involved in the famous moment in history. Dam Busters recounts the dramatic story of three young Commonwealth bomber crew members charged with the mission of preparing and ultimately flying Lancaster planes carrying specially designed bombs, targeted for dams on Germany’s Ruhr River. Barris will bring the his-

torical raid alive providing more details and stories about the Dam Busters. Come out and join others in honouring the men and women who gallantly served and continue to serve our country in the Canadian Armed Forces, and pay tribute during this 2018 Remembrance Day event. Lest we forget. On Saturday, Nov. 10 the Battle River Big Band will be playing at the Bailey Theatre, featuring music from an era gone by up to music of today. There is no charge for the Thursday night movie,

however, guests are asked to arrange for tickets prior to the event to ensure seating. There will be a silver collection at the door. For more information or to purchase tickets at the box office, reserve on-line or telephone 780-672-5510.

Best selling author captures the humanity of war

By Lori Larsen

Award winning Canadian broadcaster, journalist and author of 18 bestselling b o o k s including Dam Busters: Canadian Airmen and the Secret R a i d against Nazi Germany, Ted Barris comes to the Bailey Theatre stage on Nov. 9 at 7:30 p.m. to share with Camrose and area residents his writings of recollections of the 1943 raids on German dams. The evening is part of a two day (Nov. 8 and 9, foreshadowing Remembrance Day on Sunday, Nov. 11) tribute to the women and men of the Canadian Armed Forces who often pay the ultimate sacrifice. Barris’s interest in military history (specifically Canadian) was peaked as a result of teachers during his elementary and high school years. “When I was going through school in ’50s and ’60s there was no evidence at all of Canada’s warrior past,” remarked Barris. “In other words we were not taught that Canadians were warriors, we were taught that they were pacifists–peacekeepers.” A chance meeting at Barris’s father’s funeral, with Charley Fox, an instructor in the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (featured in Barris’ book), was instrumental in beginning research and the subsequent writing of the book. “I was able to trace how these men, (crewmen featured in the book) became so capable, to the training they received in Canada. Almost half of the men who participated in the dams raid on May 16/17, 1943 received initial training in Canada and Charley was a part of that

story. “I began to understand Canada’s wartime past and he (Fox) opened the door for me and I began to write about it. About 30 years ago some of the (war) veterans expressed interest in telling their stories through someone they could trust.” Barris indicated that through his acquaintance with Fox he has had opportunities to interview thousands of veterans. “When I realized nobody had bothered to listen to these men and women, I decided to do that. I studied and learned what their experiences were

there were seven Albertans, six from Saskatchewan and five from BC. The west provided nearly half of the air crew who flew that mission.” In describing the Canadian participation during the elaborately planned dam raids, Barris spoke about aircrews that came together as tight-knit, teams, many of which had little to no military training, many of which were leading ordinary lives prior to answering the call to serve their country. “Ken Earnshaw (one of the crew members) grew up in

and the eventual demise of all but one of that crew. “It speaks volumes about the lives they left. They were average Canadian men who put their lives and their families on hold and took on this cause of facing the most unscrupulous deadly enemy, site unseen, in one of the riskiest operations of the war to that date. These men came together as teams and trained for seven and half weeks between the end of March and 16 of May, not knowing what their target was until the day they left. It is an extraordinary story.”

Standing left to right: Stefan Oancia, Fred Sutherland, Harry O’Brien, Ken Brown, Harvey Weeks, John Thrasher, George Deering, Bill Radcliffe, Don MacLean, Joe McCarthy, and Grant McDonald.

and began to seek them out. I have been all over the world meeting veterans, listening to their stories. They are the reason I do what I do. Their gifts to me of these stories provide the thrust of my books. “The humanity–the face of war in my books. It is the veterans.” During his presentation at the Bailey, Barris will envelope the audience in stories from the book of the brave men who were part of the historical event. “The Dam Buster story is a story of extraordinary ordinariness,” said Barris. “In the dam busters raid

Ohaton. He was an extremely intelligent man, a scholar/ teacher. Because of his skills in so many areas and being able to express himself and do calculations that any navigator requires, he left his teaching, his family, his wife (Mary) whom he adored, to go off to serve in the airforce as a navigator and ended up on the dams raid and died on that night flying over the Möhne Dam at about 1 a.m. when his aircraft was hit for the second time.” Barris continued to describe the details of that fateful night, the quick thinking of the pilot (John Hopgood) in an attempt to save the crew

Barris’s books are part of his quest to keep the memories of these incredible men/ women alive and in an effort to instill the importance of Canada’s wartime contributions he challenges younger generations to imagine their 20 to 25-year-old siblings as having to make the decisions the young men in the books made. “I ask them to not think of the people of the stories as the older people who are frail and aged, standing at cenotaph on Nov. 11. Think of your brothers and sisters, 20 to 25, making life and death decisions. Once they visualize that, they get it.” In the last quarter of the book, Barris concentrates on the efforts made by a few people to preserve in records the stories of the wartime

past. “At the end of war not very many of these men were left. Some died in the raids or in later raids. Without that desire to keep it alive it may have been lost.” He commended the work of Canadian museums such as the Bomber Command Museum of Canada in Nanton, and the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton, ON, preserving and displaying the faces of the individuals who were part of the stories. After 18 years’ teaching, Barris recently retired as a full-time professor of journalism and broadcasting at Toronto’s Centennial College. Barris regularly writes for national media (National Post, Air Force magazine and Zoomers), and has hosted CBC Radio and TV Ontario. Among his eighteen bestselling non-fiction books are: Juno, Behind the Glory, Deadlock in Korea and Victory in Vimy. He has received several awards recognizing his contributions to building awareness and preserving the history of the Canadian military including: the 78th Fraser Highlander regiment Bear Hackle Award, the Remembrance Service Association of Halifax Patriot Award, the Canada 125 Medal “for service to Canada and community” the Ontario (116th) Regiment Medallion of Excellence and the Air Force Association of Canada selected him to receive Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee Medal. Barris was also one of 19 civilians presented with the Minister of Veterans’ Affairs Commendation. Audience members at Barris’s presentation will be hard pressed not to feel some of his passion for his subject matter, but more importantly a deep respect for the men and women who have served our country and continue to do so.

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.

Kodiaks ride horses with strong third frame By Murray Green

The Camrose Kodiaks almost beat the Brooks Bandits with a comeback. The loss was a great learning tool. Since then, Camrose has won three straight games. This time the young bears made it happen with a 3-2 victory over the Calgary Mustangs, Oct. 23. Camrose held the horses off the scoresheet in the first period. Then the Mustangs broke out with two goals in the middle frame to take control of the contest in Calgary. Recalling what needs to get done, the Kodiaks poured on the offence in the third to complete a comeback. Cam McAdam started the process with a tally seven minutes into the period and then, about five minutes later, Deklan Whillans netted the equalizer to change the momentum and the game. It set the stage for the winner in the last minute by veteran Zach Vinnell. Although Vinnell set up the tying goal and scored the winner, it was goalie Roddy Ross that was the game star. Ross stopped 25 of 27 shots including many timely ones to allow the Kodiaks a chance for the comeback. Camrose recorded 37 shots on the Calgary cage. The script was the opposite in a 4-2 win over the Okotoks Oilers on Oct. 21. The Kodiaks scored the first four goals of the contest and hung on for the two points. Jacob Kendall and Lane Brockhoff netted markers in the opening period. Camrose added to the lead with an Adam Kolcon tally in the second. Carson Kurylo scored the fourth Camrose goal in the third period. Goalie Ross stopped 31 of 33 shots. Camrose fired 27 shots on net. Camrose also completed a comeback, 3-2, against the Olds Grizzlys, Oct. 19. After the visitors scored first, Kendall tied the game to even the score in the opening period. Neither team scored in the second. Then Olds pulled ahead on a power play early in the third. Two tallies in 38 seconds sparked and completed the comeback for the Kodiaks. Tyler Schendel and McKenzie Welke led the offence for the come-frombehind victory. Ross turned away 31 of 33 shots that he faced. Camrose had 23 shots on goal. The Kodiaks host Fort McMurray on Nov. 3 at 7 p.m. and Lloydminster on Nov. 4 at 2 p.m. in the next home games.
