Productive relaxing

Once I was running a tad late on the way to a presentation. The speaker was going to be–um–me. As I was scrambling to get out the door, my teenage daughter asked, “Where are you going?” “To give a talk.” “About what?” Hoping she wouldn’t hear, I mumbled, “Time management.” She gave me that withering look all parents of teenage children know and said, “Don’t you feel fraudulent?” I remembered that moment as yet another “productivity” post popped up on my screen. Seems January is the month when gurus are telling us how to be productive so we accomplish our 2019 goals. Sigh. The core productivity question seems to be, “How can I get more work done in less time?” There’s no doubt in my mind that most productivity tips are useful for getting things done. And I do have some “work” things I’d like to accomplish in 2019. But I’m past the age of strive/drive. I’m old enough to have discovered–and given my upbringing, it really was new learning–that there’s more to life than getting things done, and more to life than work (Maybe you’ve always known that. If so, lucky you). ***

Once, in a taxi, running late to catch a plane, I mentioned my flight time to the taxi driver. He said he would get there as quickly as he could– safely. He pointed out that he couldn’t risk losing his license and livelihood by speeding. Then he quoted someone who said, “Your lack of organization doesn’t constitute a crisis for me.” I thought back to the sequence that led to me running late and realized my entire life could be summarized in seven words: “trying to fit in one more thing.” I asked myself, “What is the terror of an unstructured moment?” Back to the productivity tips. Decades ago I learned about figuring out what is important and not important, and what is urgent and not urgent. The trick is to schedule time for important things, organize so that few things become unnecessarily “urgent,” and get rid of as many unimportant things as possible. What I learned in more recent decades and was pleased to see in some “productivity” advice, was that taking time to rest, to eat properly, and to move (if not actually exercise) all contribute to productivity. I was pleased to see something I didn’t used to know: that ensuring time for pure joy activities in every day actually contributes to “productivity.” Above all, I was pleased to see that for some, “productivity” was about “having a fulfilling life,” not just “getting work things done.”

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. Yellow Vests

I was horrified to see a “yellow vest” gathering in Camrose the other day. The yellow vest Canada movement has nothing to do with the Yellow Vest protests against low wages and high taxes in France. Yellow Vest Canada has now been widely documented as a group that represents hatred, racism, bigotry, misogyny, white supremacism and yes, antiimmigration. Camrose is a city established on Treaty 6 land by immigrants, mostly from Scandinavia and Camrose celebrates it’s Scandinavian heritage. There is a large faith community whose values include “brotherly love” and tolerance. Not so long ago, some of these people went out of their way to welcome Syrian refugee families. We have an exceptional university campus that welcomes a large number of international students, and is building a strong, collaborative relationship with Indigenous neighbours. There are hundreds of recent immigrants employed in every avenue of our society–doctors, servers, business owners, students, teachers, maintenance workers, caregivers and so much more. To see this ill-informed yellow vest group–all

descendants of immigrants–and their spokesperson who, unless she has an Indigenous background, is also of immigrant descent, start to rear their ugly message in our community is sickening. Make racism wrong again. Midge Lambert, Camrose Editor’s note: Every Canadian was an immigrant at some point. Informed voters

Lorne Vanderwoude, I want to commend you for encouraging citizens to vote in the upcoming elections, but I’ll add something. Not only do we have a responsibility to vote–we also have a responsibility to be informed voters. Most of us are not informed enough. Unfortunately, in our system, a politician’s first priority is to do and say what will get them elected, not necessarily what is good for citizens. For example, Jason Kenney and the UCP continue to say that the carbon tax is bad for the economy and jobs when the evidence is just the opposite. Perrin Beatty, head of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce and former Conservative cabinet minister, has told the Conservatives to stop opposing the

carbon tax because it is good for our economy. Mark Cameron, former advisor to Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper, has said the Trudeau carbon tax will be good for our economy, actually put money in the pockets of low and middle income Canadians and is essential for Canada to meet its international obligations. Still, Mr. Kenney says he will scrap the NDP carbon tax. But wait, he said on CBC’s Power and Politics that he will replace it with a Large Emitters Carbon Levy–in other words, the Kenney carbon tax. We need some answers, Lorne. We need to make the UCP tell us, for example, if the Kenney carbon tax will have a rebate for low and middle income Albertans and an exemption for farmers like the Notley carbon tax. Because Kenny is not saying. Yes, we must vote, Lorne, but we also must educate ourselves. We must ask the tough questions and we must fact-check, because sadly, we cannot assume our politicians will be honest. Because, Lorne, only the informed voter has the power to make the correct choice. Rob Hill, Camrose

***

I haven’t forgotten the busy years, of combining 24/7 responsibility for the lives of children while trying to stay on top of demanding jobs, often while also fitting in back-to-school and maybe some community activities. I sometimes wondered, “Will I ever not be tired?” If someone had said, “Take time for yourself,” or “Set aside time to do nothing,” I would have given them the same withering look my teenage daughter gave me. I have the luxury of being past the busy years. My family may find this hard to believe, but I’m usually a few minutes early these days. After an adult lifetime of scrambling to fit in one more thing, I’m delighted to experience how pleasant it is not to be in a rush. Turns out unstructured time is not boring at all. It’s a gift to have the freedom to ask, “What do I feel like doing right now?” Staring into space–or into a lovely view– actually counts as “something” rather than “nothing.” I’m even more delighted to discover that doing what I would once have called “nothing” is often followed by times when I’m amazed at how much can be accomplished in how little time–without pushing. It’s called “flow.” Lucky me to have lived long enough to experience that there’s a fulfilling and “productive” life after strive/ drive. ***

Young McCarrolls show an ode of gratitude to the city By Lori Larsen

Three future Camrose taxpayers expressed their gratitude to the City of Camrose employees, in An Ode to City Workers that was recently posted on the City Facebook page. With a little encouragement and writing assistance from mom, Trina McCarroll, eight-yearold Brook, five-year-old Dylan and three-year-old Aubrey wrote a detailed and touching ode to the many City employees who help to make Camrose the amazing community it is and the three children, quite literally, left no stone unturned. “We decided to write this while laying in bed with my mom one night,” explained Brook on how the idea came about. “She (mom) told us she had a big meeting with the City workers and she had to present something so she said that (the poem) would be a good idea.” It took very little prompting on Trina’s part, an employee with the City of Camrose, to get the children thinking about the many good things employees of Camrose do around the City and, in their own words, the children felt it would be a nice way to thank them.

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster City of Camrose Mayor Norm Mayer joins three-year-old Aubrey, five-year-old Dylan and eight-year-old Brook McCarroll, authors and artists of the Ode To City Workers, in council chambers.

“It would be a really nice compliment for the City workers,” said Dylan “This was a nice way to say thank you for helping Camrose be a better place,” continued Brook. With references that ranged from the public works employees who hang the Christmas lights, to the

City engineers who designed and looked over the building of the new 48th Avenue Bridge and pedestrian underpass, the McCarroll children made sure all the bases were covered. “My most enjoyable part

of the poem was the City workers helping to clear the bike trails for us to ride bikes in the summer,” noted Brook, adding that the new pedestrian underpass (tunnel as she referred to it) is great because they get to ride through it and under the road. Dylan was very excited to be able to include one of his favourite features of Camrose–the Mirror Lake water fountain. “I thanked them for helping take care of the water fountain and building the playgrounds too,” he said. T h e poem was read to the attendees at the City corporate Christmas party and since then, comments and thank you’s have been posted. “I think the poem was very meaningful to the City workers because we were saying everything we loved about them,” said Brook. The children were each given two choices of which pictures they wanted to draw and colour depicting

the subject matter in the poem and, although during the interview Aubrey was a gal of few words, it is clear she had a hand in the incredible artwork on the poem. The children described why Camrose is a great place to live and given an opportunity to tell anyone coming to Camrose what it is like, they agreed, it is a safe community. “Thanks to the police officers and firefighters and ambulance workers and other emergency services–like when they helped me when I broke my arm,” commented Brook. “The vets too,” chirped in Dylan. As citizens of Camrose, a lesson may be learned from three very astute young children. Gratitude is something that has no age limit. Maybe the next time you see the flowers blooming in our City gardens, or a grader operator diligently trying to keep up with the falling snow, you too will have a little more appreciation for the work that goes into keeping Camrose one of the best places to live. To read the poem in its entirety, visit the City of Camrose Facebook page and scroll down until you reach An Ode To City Workers posted under photos.

Kodiaks lose three straight By Murray Green

The Camrose Kodiaks have lost three straight games in the critical part of its schedule. Camrose dropped a 5-1 decision to the Okotoks Oilers on Jan. 12. Okotoks scored the only tally in the first period and Camrose netted a goal early in the second to make the game close. The local connection provided the offence with Jacob Kendall scoring after receiving help from Kyler Kupka and Cody Laskosky. The Oilers then stepped up to score two goals to gain the lead and then added two more in the third frame. Goalie Kyle Dumba made 50 of 55 saves to keep Camrose in the game for as long as he

could. The Kodiaks had 23 shots on goal. Camrose fought hard in the 6-4 loss to the first place Brooks Bandits on Jan. 11. Brooks scored twice in the opening period to steal the momentum early. However, after a pep talk, the Kodiaks came out hard to start the middle frame and scored on plays from Carson Kurylo and Carson Welke. Brooks regained a two-goal lead before Erik Miller replied for the Kodiaks. In the third, Brooks added another tally before Kendall replied on the power play. A late Brooks power play marker ended the scoring. Dumba stopped 24 of 30 shots, while his teammates fired 25 shots on the Brooks net. The bears ran neck and neck with the Cal-

gary Mustangs until the third period when the horses netted four goals to win 5-2, Jan. 8. Cale Chalifoux and Carson Welke scored third period markers for the Kodiaks. Griffin Bowerman turned away 31 of the 35 shots directed his way in the Camrose net. The Kodiaks had 27 shots on goal. After a three-game road swing in Lloydminster, Grande Prairie and Whitecourt, the Kodiaks close out the month at home against Spruce Grove on Jan. 30.

Make Some Noise for Mental Health By Murray Green

Augustana athletes and mental health advocates in Alberta are teaming up with RBC Olympians and Sheldon Kennedy to reduce stigma related to mental illness and promote mental health and wellness. Make Some Noise for Mental Health is an awardwinning campaign, which promotes mental health awareness on 17 postsecondary campuses in 11 communities. The campaign starts on Jan. 11 and continues until Feb. 9. T he Aug usta na Vikings, (University of Alberta Augustana) will be encouraging fans to Make Some Noise on Jan. 25 and 26. The volleyball team plays on Jan. 25 at 6 and 8 p.m. against Concordia. The hockey club hosts NAIT on Jan. 26 at 6 p.m. in the Encana Arena and the basketball teams host

Concordia on Jan. 26 at 6 and 8 p.m. in the gym. For the fourth consecutive year, and with endorsement from the Canadian Mental Health Association, the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) is conducting a conferencewide mental health awareness campaign. Created and implemented in 2015, by the SAIT Trojans Outreach Program, Make Some Noise for Mental Health has grown into an ACAC conference-wide awareness campaign to break stigmas around mental health. By involving student-athletes, Make Some Noise for Mental Health is intended to encourage empathy, understanding and open mindedness while promoting resources and support available on campuses and in their communities. This year, the ACAC and CMHA are once again

excited to team up with RBC as the 2018 Make Some Noise for Mental Health presenting sponsor for the second consecutive year. “The involvement of RBC as the presenting partner, and continued support of CMHA Alberta and the CMHA Alberta regional offices, has been absolutely pivotal in expanding the profile and scope of this important ACAC initiative. We simply can’t thank both organizations enough for lending their influential voices to the ACAC’s efforts to make more noise about mental health,” said Mark Kosak, ACAC chief executive officer. “We are excited to welcome the return of honorary chair, Sheldon Kennedy who won a Memorial Cup, World Junior Gold Medal and skated for three teams in his eight-year NHL career.”

Canadian Bull Congress showcases agriculture sector By Lori Larsen

The Canadian Bull Congress (CBC) has been attracting people from all over Canada, as well as international locations to Camrose, in order to showcase and view some of the best the cattle industry has to offer. The Camrose Regional Exhibition (CRE) welcomes exhibitors, sponsors, and attendees on Jan. 25 and 26 to a spectacular representation of part of our agricultural sector. “Exhibitor space has been sold out since December, with a lot of new exhibitors making an appearance at the CBC,” noted CRE major events and international agricultural marketing manager, Marilyn Lee. The two-day event offers purebred breeders, commercial cattlemen and agricultural related product and service exhibitors a venue to exchange resources and information and includes a trade fair featuring livestock and other agricultural exhibitors. The school program, a popular event attended by hundreds of local elementary students, gives students an opportunity to look, listen and learn about the many aspects of agriculture and the vital contribution it plays in our communities. Students will learn firsthand, with some hands on, about the cattle industry through topics that include auctioneering, the field of veteri-

nary, farm safety, tagging, oilseeds and milk producers. Event schedule The event began early for Camrose area elementary students who are lucky enough to be able to participate in the School Education Program on Tuesday and Wednesday, Jan. 22 and 23 from 9:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. Doors open on Friday, Jan. 25 at 9 a.m. with the Show Ring beginning at 11 a.m. featuring the junior heifer show, single purebred heifer show, 4-H heifer project show, showmanship class, junior bull show and marketing award presentation (show ring). The show closes at 6 p.m., with the Taste of Beef Banquet beginning. This year, attendees will be amused by the comedy of entertainer Angelo Tsarouchas. Doors open again on Saturday, Jan. 26 at 9 a.m. with the show ring beginning at 11 a.m. featuring the mature bull show, senior bull show, pen of three bull show, ranchers’ choice single bull show followed by the ever popular Bull-nanza, with the show concluding at 5 p.m. Established in 1986, the Canadian Bull Congress has been promoting the attributes of a variety of bull breeds for 33 years and encourages you to come on down and see what CBC has to offer.

Battle River Community Foundation assists Open Door Submitted

The Battle River Community Foundation recently awarded grants to the Open Door. The grants are from income from the Camrose Open Door Fund—created by the board of the Open Door to provide an ongoing source of discretionary income for the Association, from the Laverna Grandfield Fund created to provide support for programs supporting youth at risk, particularly the Camrose Open Door Association, and the Dwight and Bonnie Maurer Fund–created with proceeds of a Community Builders Dinner honouring the Maurers. The Battle River Community Foundation exists to support projects and facilities, such as the

Open Door, in East Central Alberta which benefit the local communities and have a positive impact on the future. Grants from the Battle River Community Foundation 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 $6,350,000 to support community facilities and programs operated by organizations like the Camrose Open Door Association.

Submitted Battle River Community Foundation director Tom Chelmick presents a $3,500 cheque to Kiera Park, communications and volunteer coordinator for the Open Door.

Grieving loss of animal companions By Lori Larsen

Whether they have fur, hair, feathers, four legs, two legs or eight legs, they are our beloved animal companions and when we experience their loss, it is heart breaking. Lyndell Drever, social worker, family school liaison worker and Hospice Society of Camrose and District co-facilitator for daytime grief group, knows all too well the intense sorrow that can accompany the loss of an animal companion and, for that reason, has taken it upon herself to extend her knowledge in the area of grief therapy and ultimately offer her services to those in need. “I have loved animals since day one and I fall deeply in love with my pets,” said Lyndell, with a stitch of emotion. “I have lost a lot of pets and I grieve deeply for them.”

whether that be through the death of the animal or the move to a residence that doesn’t allow pets. “Pets can be so important in peoples’ lives.” Lyndell has always been interested in grief work, specifically helping people after a loss and supporting them through the often very trying journey. “I really love that and I feel it is such a gift for me to be able to be part of somebody’s grief journey. People can be so strong. They come to grief support groups and they don’t think they have anything left, but because we provide them with this safe place where they can share their grief, they draw upon this deep inner strength and then it empowers them to help themselves.” She added that despite

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster Lyndell Drever and her six-year-old Maltese/Yorkie cross Hudson share an incredible bond not uncommon to many people and their animal companions.

Lyndell hopes to utilize her past and future experience volunteering with the Hospice and facilitating grief and bereavement support groups at the hospital to organize a similar service for those who have or are going to lose a cherished animal companion. “Grief is so heavy in our lives and comes in many different ways,” she explained. “It is not just the loss of a person, but we can be grieving over a move or a divorce. For children, the experience of grief is huge then add to that the possible loss of a pet, it can be devastating.” In her work in home care, Lyndell has also witnessed the pain seniors experience over the loss of an animal companion,

never being over their grief, at the end, most people are at a much healthier spot and feel there is some hope. Realizing the huge benefits that support groups and grief facilitators have when someone experiences the loss of a person, Lyndell felt it only fitting that the same service would be just as beneficial to those who have lost an animal companion. “We are starting, as a society, to be better at supporting people grieving the loss of people, but there is really not a lot, especially in this area, for grief support in the loss of a pet.” Lyndell is presently becoming certified as a pet grief therapist and hopes to breach the sometimes taboo area of speaking

about grief. “I am passionate about this and know it is real, so I am putting myself out there. I can’t wait to see the brave souls that come forward to talk about their grief for the loss of a companion animal.” The sessions will include Lyndell acting as a facilitator in a group setting where attendees are provided with a safe place to come and share and are supported through their grief journey over the loss of a companion animal. “People come to realize they are not alone and everyone shares their story. It is amazing how many people think they were the only ones who were feeling that way. The group therapy validates those feelings and gives them that boost,” she said, smiling as she added that it is amazing to see the bonds that are formed within the group that often continue after the sessions conclude. The first group session was held on Jan. 20 at the Camrose Veterinary Hospital, in partnership with the clinic to provide this service to their clients. After just recently having to get a family horse euthanized, Lyndell’s emotions were still fairly raw as she spoke of the incredible compassion Dr. Jamie Whiting showed during this difficult time in her life. “I would like to be available to people when they are told their pet has cancer, or when they are faced with a decision on whether or not to euthanize a companion animal. They also need support during that process and when the time comes for the person to make the decision, to be there for them as well,” she said, saying that the grieving process begins the minute a person gets that diagnosis. Lyndell’s hope is to offer support to people through the entire process. “Grief is grief. It hurts, it comes in waves and can knock you down. I am always amazed at how little people know about how much grief affects them, and I want to help educate people.” Lyndell commented that it is important for people to realize they are not alone in their journey of grief. “To know, even losing a companion animal, that if you cannot sleep or you are happy one day or all of a sudden in tears, that is all normal.” Sharing grief may be a difficult process in the beginning, but knowing that there are people, like Lyndell, who sincerely want to help you through it can bring immeasurable comfort to one’s loss. For more information, telephone Lyndell at 780-608-6337.

Summer jobs program moves forward By Murray Green

Applications for the Summer Temporary Employment Program (STEP) are now being accepted online. STEP supports employers and students by providing wage subsidies for thousands of student work positions in Alberta every summer. The Alberta government re-introduced STEP to create work opportunities for high school and postsecondary students between May and August, by providing a $7 per-hour wage subsidy to employers. “Alberta students deserve good jobs and the best possible training, and Alberta businesses deserve the labour resources they need to thrive. Since we brought STEP back in 2016, the program has provided nearly 9,000 jobs for students across the province. Employers who hire students, improve job prospects for young Albertans and can hire additional resources to sustain and build their business,” said Christina Gray, minister of labour. Last year, STEP helped almost 1,400 employers hire 3,050 students for summer positions. The program is available to small businesses, non-profit organizations, public libraries, school boards, publicly funded post-secondary institutions, municipalities, First Nations and Metis settlements. “Well educated young people, with useful skills, are essential to our future and we need to provide meaningful employment opportunities to help prepare them. The STEP program makes it possible to take on students to work in small businesses and public institutions, that could not afford to hire them otherwise. Students who have worked for us have all gone on to build successful careers,” said Peter Wallis, president and principal scientist, Hyperion Research. New for this year is that applications are being accepted online only, to streamline the process, through the Labour Workforce Grants Portal. Employers interested in hiring a student for 2019 are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. Applications must be submitted before the Feb. 8 deadline. Additional information and application forms are available online at alberta.ca/step.

New year, new beginning By Kevin Sorenson

Happy 2019! New year, new beginning? I don’t think so. We need real changes before we can have a new beginning. A complete transformation with such things as sound fiscal management, stemming the tide of illegal immigrants, the building of pipelines, getting our oil onto distant shores, and stopping the theatrics of Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Our new year can only really begin if an Andrew Scheer lead Conservative Party is fortunate to win the support of a majority of Canadians come this October. For the next ten months, my Conservative colleagues and I will be working hard to earn the backing of Canadians by outlining our positive vision for this country and proposing policies that put the interests of Canadians first. It goes without saying that we will begin by promising to get back to balanced budgets out of respect for our children and grandchildren and because it is the fiscally responsible thing to do. The economy of this country and the financial security of Canadians will be at the heart of our campaign. On January 10th, the Bank of Canada Governor, Stephen Poloz, held interest rates at 1.75 per cent due to concerns that our economic outlook will not be so bright in the coming months. The slow down is reportedly coming fast and is primarily the result of lower oil prices, weaker housing activity and the U.S.-China trade clash. The price of crude is 25 per cent lower than the Bank predicted it would be back in October. This significant drop in oil prices is negatively affecting business investment and the value of Canadian exports. Governor Poloz predicts the recent oil-price slump will take 0.5 percent of the level of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by the end of 2020 and result in a 12 per cent decrease in investment in Canada’s oil and gas sector. In 2014, investment in this sector accounted for 30 per cent of all business investment in Canada. Today, it is at 15 per cent. Also, on January 10th, the Bank released its first 2019 quarterly forecast which showed a sharp decline in the predicted GDP growth. Originally forecasted to grow 2.1 per cent, the Bank of Canada now predicts economic growth of only 1.7 per cent this year which is below the 2018 pace of 2 per cent. The Liberals have long defended running deficits of $18 billion over the last three years (remember in the 2015 Federal Election, they promised “modest” deficits of $10 billion) by repeatedly promising to keep our debt-to-GDP ratio on a downward track. This ratio, calculated by dividing the total federal debt by the size of the economy, is a determination of whether a country is taking on too much debt – a debt it will be unable to pay. An unexpected slowdown in the economy, such as the one we are now predicted to face, can result in a sharply higher debt-to-GDP ratio. As Conservatives have long argued, the best way to keep this ratio on a downward track and not be caught off guard, is to continually limit Government spending and to balance the budget. Liberals obviously, disagree. Hopefully, this disagreement or significant difference in fiscal management will result in a new Federal Government in 2019; a government that respects taxpayers’ dollars and will get our finances back under control so we can weather the predictable storms that are always on the horizon.

Hillsburn By Murray Green

Hillsburn is an indiefolk rock band from Nova Scotia that is on its way to becoming one of the east coast’s fastest rising acts. The band will be sharing its music with Camrose on Friday, Jan. 25 at 8 p.m. at the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre. They are part of the cabaret series. “We are looking forward to this tour. We have had it booked for awhile. We’ve been to Alberta a couple of times, but not in Camrose so we are really looking forward to that,” said drummer Clare Macdonald. Hillsburn is a group of young musicians who enjoy three-part harmonies and solid lyrics. After touring extensively in support of their award-winning debut album in Canada and the US, the band released a follow-up, The Wilder Beyond last year. When asked about the references to indie-folk and rock, Clare said, “We are a bit of all three. The band started out as folk, but when I joined, we went for a different sound towards indie and rock. Rosanna still plays the fiddle, so people get some folk music out of there,” suggested Clare. “There is nothing intensionally east coast about our music, it just evolved into the sound we have now.” Hillsburn consists of Paul Aarntzen, songwriter, vocals, guitar; Rosanna Burrill, vocals, violin, synthesizers; Clayton Burrill, vocals, guitar; Jackson Fairfax-Perry, keyboards, synthesizers, saxophone, mandolin; and Clare on drums and percussion. Hillsburn has been nominated for a number of regional and national awards in just five years. The band formed as a quartet in 2014 at Paul’s home, in the small village of Hillsburn, Nova Scotia at the time. Rosanna and her brother Clayton were joined by Jackson, where the band had its first rehearsals.

“The four of them had a folk acoustic band and I kept sending them messages that they needed a drummer and that it should be me. They recorded the first album and added some drum pieces to it. They tried that live and it really wasn’t working the way they wanted it to. I was having coffee with Rosanna and Jackson one day, we all went to school together, and he asked me to join them, so I did. I was excited because I was a fan already.” Aarntzen subsequently relocated to Halifax to dedicate more time to the project. Hillsburn released its self-titled, self-recorded EP in October 2014. One of the tracks from this selfrecorded EP placed in the national top 10 in CBC’s Searchlight competition that year. This success was followed up with the release of the band’s first fulllength album, In The Battle Years in 2016. Shortly after releasing their debut full-length, the band added drummer Clare Macdonald to the mix. Clare, Rosanna, and Jackson had all previously known each other from Dalhousie University’s music program. “We really like intimate shows and getting close to the crowd,” said Clare. “We just love what we are doing and we take

everything day by day, appreciating all of the support that we have.” In The Battle Years was awarded the 2016 Canadian Folk Music Award for New/Emerging Artist of the Year. Hillsburn was also nominated in several categories at the 2017 East Coast Music Awards, including Rising Star Recording of the Year, Group Recording of the Year, and Fans’ Choice Video of the Year. “Our progression just happens naturally. We experiment with different sounds and ideas. We are already starting to work on some new music,” said Clare. Hillsburn released its sophomore record, The Wilder Beyond, on Feb. 2, 2018. The album was nominated for six awards at the 2018 Nova Scotia Music Awards, while Aarntzen was nominated for SOCAN songwriter of the year. A deluxe edition of the album is scheduled for release this February. “We wanted to get the album out with our new sound, so that was almost a year ago. This February, we are releasing it again with three extra songs. We took a song and stripped away to be more acoustic. We also re-did a song from the first album. Maybe we will play a never-heardbefore song for Camrose.”

The Red Deer Symphony Orchestra is a local favourite after their sold out Christmas performance last season. This time, they will be saluting Robbie Burns Day and will perform Scottish folk songs at the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre on Sunday, Jan. 27 beginning at 7 p.m. Red Deer Symphony is a regional professional orchestra based in Red Deer. Celebrating Scotland’s Bard of Ayrshire, the evening will leave you with songs in your heart. The symphony was founded with financial assistance from the local branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, as a community ensemble. It developed over time into a professional orchestra presenting six main series concerts, three chamber music series concerts, and a variety of specials and children’s programs. Among the latter is Choir Kids, an annual program which gives the opportunity to 20 elementary school choirs to perform with members of the orchestra. The orchestra has been heard in broadcasts for the CBC; replaced the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, which was touring Europe at the time, as the Orchestra for the Alberta Ballet Company in 2000 and has frequently collaborated with Edmonton’s Pro Coro Canada. Music director and conductor Claude Lapalme joined the symphony in 2012. “It’s great to come back to Camrose. They have a good musical program at Augustana and the community is appreciative of music,” said Claude Lapalme, the conductor of the Red Deer Symphony Orchestra. In 2017, the orchestra took part in Canada 150 celebration concert with Steven Page. “The symphony was founded in 1987 as a parttime professional orchestra. That means musicians are hired per concert and we perform six or seven per year,” explained Claude, who started in 1990. The orchestra receives some of its funding through grants from the Red Deer Community Cultural Fund.

Donna Allen January 11, 1932 ~ January 15, 2019 Donna Allen of Camrose, formerly of Edberg, passed away on January 15, 2019 at St. Mary’s Hospital with her family by her side. Donna was born to Sigvald and Gladys Djuve on January 11, 1932. She grew up on the farm and attended Rosebush School and later, Edberg School. She was confirmed in Edberg. Donna married Marvin Allen in 1953 and they farmed east of Edberg. In 1961, they moved to Camrose where they raised their daughter Christine. Donna worked part-time at Woolworths and Macleods until she retired. Donna deeply loved her family and friends and shared a special bond with many cousins, loving them as if they were her brothers and sisters. She always welcomed others to be part of her own family. Donna never wanted to miss her grandchildren’s events and spent a lot of time at baseball games, curling rinks and school events. Over the years, she enjoyed many family camping trips and took pleasure in meeting friends and family for coffee. Donna always enjoyed having the company of all the family pets. She treasured the Tuesday morning Bible studies and the lunches that followed with the ladies. Left to cherish her memory are her daughter Christine (Reinhard); grandchildren Kaitlin (JC), Jillian, Timothy and Grace; sister-in-law Eileen (Earl); and many other relatives and friends. She was predeceased by her husband Marvin and brother Donald.

Lloyd Murray Helton Lloyd Murray Helton passed away on January 17, 2019. He was 77 years old. Lloyd is survived by his wife Ona (nee Amonson); and daughters Tanya (Jim) Rexin of Kitimat, BC and Karen of Ontario; sons David and Chris (Lynn) of Fort St. John, BC; granddaughters Havana and Alyssa; as well as six other grandchildren and one great-grandchild. Lloyd was born on August 8, 1941 in Trochu, Alberta to Mervin and Edith Helton of Three Hills, AB. He was the eldest of siblings, Howard (Lynn), Lillian (Milt) and John (Marian). He grew up in Three Hills, AB and was active in baseball, hockey and delivering newspapers. He moved to Fort St. John in 1968 and was active in refereeing hockey. He met Ona’s brother Brian and her parents before ever meeting her, when they were set up on a blind date in 1973 by Dick and Lish Brown. They were married later that year and daughter Tanya was born in 1974. In 1979, Lloyd and Ona welcomed a sibling group of three children to their family through adoption, meaning they that they now had four children, age four and under. Lloyd worked for the Bridge Crew for the Ministry of Highways from 1974 to 1987. When the Bridge crew was privatized, he retrained to become a locksmith and set up a business, Fortress Lock & Key, which he and Ona operated in Fort St. John for 23 years­­, before retiring to Camrose. Lloyd had a lifetime love of trains, with fond memories with his dad and family setting up a model railway in their basement in the 1950s onward. Lloyd collected model HO trains for years as well as a wide assortment of train-related collectibles. He was in the process of setting up a model railway to finally display his collection. Unfortunately, he was not able to see this come to fruition. He will be remembered for his kindness, love for people, and sense of humour.­­­ A memorial service was held at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 20, 2019 at the Resurrection Lutheran Brethren Church (5601 Enevold Drive), Camrose, AB. A second memorial service was held at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at the North Peace Mennonite Brethren Church (10813 106 Street), Fort St. John, BC. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Canadian Lutheran Bible Institute or the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada.

Lloyd Arthur Paulson Lloyd Arthur Paulson passed away on January 4, 2019 at the age of 83 years old. Lloyd was born at Bawlf, Alberta on March 31, 1935 to parents Henry and Gladys Paulson. He was little brother to his sisters Irene and Allie. At three years old, he and the family moved to the farm he would call home for over 80 more years. Growing up, he attended the Spruce Coulee School. That was back in the days of the one-room, one-teacher school. Lloyd enjoyed playing ball, horseback riding, farming and visiting. He also enjoyed hockey – especially the Calgary Flames – and watching the chuckwagon races – especially at the Ponoka Stampede. On August 8, 1956, he married the love of his love life, Lois Soderstrom. As a couple, they enjoyed square dancing and taking in the Saturday night picture shows in Donalda. Lloyd and Lois started their family with the arrival of Wayne in 1963, two years later Bruce arrived in 1965 and Wanda in 1971. Lloyd worked off the farm, too. He did road construction for a summer and drove school bus for over 35 years. In 1982, the first Peruvian horse was bought. That lead to raising and showing them and achieving respect for championship stock throughout Canada and northwest United States. Animals of many kinds have been raised with careful attention by Lloyd: pigs, chickens, turkeys, cattle, horses, dogs, cats … even ducks and goats. The neighbors and relatives benefited from his knowledge and help with their animals on many occasions, too! The years went by, seeing all his kids marry and have families of their own, and so began the next generation and his new title of “Papa”. Nothing gave him more joy than his grandkids … and now great-granddaughters, too. All the generations have been blessed with knowing his love and pride. All having started with a love between he and Lois that lasted more than 62 years. Lloyd is survived by his loving wife Lois; sons Wayne (Yvette) Paulson and Bruce (Katie) Paulson; daughter Wanda PaulsonStensrud; grandchildren Aleisha Paulson, Shelby Paulson, Hunter Paulson, Cody Paulson and Ami (Shawn) Rogers; two greatgranddaughters Tara and Mackenzie; aunt Myrtle Norman; as well as numerous other family and dear friends. Lloyd was predeceased by parents Henry and Gladys Paulson; infant sister Hazel; two older sisters Allie and Irene; son-in-law Jeff; and parents-in-law Oliver and Doris Soderstrom. Funeral services were held at the Donalda Community Hall on Thursday, January 10, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. with Lloyd being laid to rest at the Spruce Coulee Cemetery. Family and friends gathered in the lower hall of the Donalda Community Hall for a time of fellowship and a luncheon prepared and served by Teresa’s Catering.

The automotive section of

Ford Express truck pieced together By Murray Green

You may have heard of the saying, it takes a village to raise a child. In the automotive world, it takes about three parts vehicles to make restoration. Mark Tiedemann took that a step further when he decided to build his green and black 1928 Ford express truck. “This truck is put together mostly by pieces. It probably has parts from five or six different trucks,” Mark explained. “The parts came all the way from north of Grande Prairie to a long ways south. I gathered parts from several trucks and put them together to make one good one.” As the Model T and TT became obsolete and needed to be replaced, Henry Ford began initial designs on the Model A and Model AA in 1926. Basic chassis layout was done rapidly and mechanical development was moved forward quickly. Body design and style was developed and then outsourced to various body manufacturers, including Briggs and Murray. “I stumbled onto a piece of one and I went from there. What attracted me to this truck, is that my dad had one similar to this. So, we have memories of this truck, or one similar to it,” shared Mark. “Find-

ing all of the parts was the hardest part of building this truck.” The designs of the Model A shared parts and materials with the Model

FUN FACTS

Ford trucks were powered by the same 201-cubicinch (3.3L) engine that the Model A Ford used. The engine produced a maximum of 40 horsepower at 2,200 rpm. The engine featured an up-draft carburetor, six-volt generator, two-blade fan, mechanical water pump, mechanical oil pump, electric starter and four-row radiator. All of these features were identical to the Model A Ford except the radiator. The engine could also be crank started if necessary by a hand crank that is inserted through a hole in the radiator shell. The truck was based on a chassis that was similar in design to the Model A Ford, except it was substantially larger and heavier to accommodate the work this truck was designed for. Ford had a four-speed manual gearbox. The transmission was geared lower than the Model A Ford to provide more torque to move a loaded truck. This lower gearing reduced the top speed of the truck when compared to the Model A Ford. The transmission also featured a lock-out on the shift knob for reverse that required a lever to be activated with the thumb so reverse could be engaged. This was done to prevent accidental engagement of reverse while the truck was in motion. Early trucks had a worm gear rear-end that limited the top speed of the truck.

AA Ford, notably the body, engine and interior. The AA usually received plainer interiors than their car counterparts. The Model AA followed similar design changes to the Model A during the AA’s four years in production. “After completing this truck it made me feel good. It was a sense of accomplishment,” Mark added. “This is the first car show that I’ve entered. In fact, I just finished the last of the work last night, so it’s new to car shows and I haven’t gone anywhere yet. I just live right here (Tofield), so I had to enter this show,” said Mark, who’s dad John also entered his trucks. The father and son combo often work on projects together. Mark is an autobody man and his dad was a mechanic. “It is put together with as many authentic parts as possible. I pretty much replaced or re-built every-

thing. It was a matter of finding the part that was in the best shape and going from there. The designs of the Model A shared parts and

materials with the Model AA Ford, notably the body, engine and interior. The AA usually received plainer interiors than their car counterparts.

This year marks the 26th edition of the Rocky Road Ice Cream Carnival, taking place at the University of Alberta Augustana Campus. “Rocky Road is a funfilled afternoon full of wall-climbing, games,

face painting, cool crafts, stories, a parachute and unlimited ice cream,” said Sarah McCrae, Augustana student experience coordinator. This event will be in the Augustana Gym on Sunday, Jan. 27. Admission for both adults and

children is $5 with a food bank donation. The Rocky Road Ice Cream Carnival first started in 1993, by students looking to put on an event where children and youth of Camrose could come out for a fun-filled afternoon. “This event has since

City transit keeps residents moving By Lori Larsen

The City of Camrose transit program offers options to residents to move throughout the City and now to Edmonton. The general consensus is the current transit services are well received by the community. Community Bus

Offering a four-day-perweek fixed route service with two days a week available for group bookings, the community bus (operated under contract by the Rose City Handivan Society), while originally designed to cater to seniors, has seen an increase in ridership including younger riders seeking inexpensive transportation to locales throughout the city. “The Community Bus has seen a steady increase in ridership through 2018, with the top ridership being 282 riders in a week,” said infrastructure and transit program coordinator, Kirsten Freeborn. The Community Bus service received $100,000 funding in the 2018 budget. “In 2018, there were 10,700 rides at an approximate cost of $80,000, equating to a subsidy from the City of $7.48 per ride, excluding the capital costs of the actual bus,” noted City of

Camrose manager Malcolm Boyd in a report council on Jan. 7. The service is available Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays on a clockwise route starting in the central downtown area making its way across town to the major west-end commercial area and back. First departure is 9 a.m. from Mirror Lake Centre and the final drop-off is 5 p.m. at Mirror Lake Centre. The bus is wheelchair accessible and capable of safely securing strollers, walkers and wheelchairs. Recent discussions among city council and administration spurred an interest in changes to the current community bus service to include a pilot north route. The matter will be further discussed throughout 2019. For more information on the Community bus or a complete schedule and route information, visit the City of Camrose website at /www.camrose.ca/en/ living-here/transportation. aspx# or telephone Rose City Handivan Society at 780-672-8777. Taxi tokens

The taxi token program provides a taxi token subsidy valued at $4, available at 28 social services agen-

cies throughout Camrose, to be distributed to clients of the agencies in an effort to provide some financial relief to those experiencing financial hardship. The taxi token program was funded by the City to the amount of $100,000 in the 2018 budget consisting of 25,000 tokens valued at $4 per token. Some of the agencies participating in the Taxi Token program include: AISH, Bethany Group, Camrose Association for Community Living, Camrose and District Support Services, Canadian Mental Health Association, Camrose Public Library, Child and Family Services, Diagnostic Imaging– Smith Clinic, Early Supported Stroke Discharge, Home Care–AHS, Learning Together Program, McMann Outreach Program, Mental Health and Addictions (Alberta Health Services), MSK (Hip and Knee) Clinic (Alberta Health Services), Neighbor Aid and the Food Bank, The Open Door (do not hand out tokens to people who walk in requesting them), PACE Outreach School, Probation/Correctional Services, Primary Care Network, Public Health (Alberta Health Services), Schizo-

Churchmice perform exciting Mamma Mia! By Murray Green

The musical play Mamma Mia! has been a hit around the world because of its fantastic songs. Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, of ABBA, composed the songs, and the story was written by British playwright Catherine Johnson. The title of the musical is taken from the group’s 1975 charttopper “Mamma Mia.” Ulvaeus and Andersson, who composed the original music for ABBA, were involved in the development of the show from the beginning. Now the local theatre group, Churchmice Players, are bringing the high energy musical with classic hits to the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre stage on Feb. 7 to 10 and again Feb. 14 to 17. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. except for two matinees on Feb. 10 and 17 that begin at 2 p.m. “The level of talent that came out for auditions was incredible,” said director Dave McDougall. “We had to double cast our main roles because there was just too much great talent not to take advantage of it. We had over 60 people come to the auditions.” The other reason was that eight musical shows are hard on a persons voice. Doing half ensures better consistency. Churchmice has very different casts and performers who make the character their own. Anyone who is an ABBA or Mamma Mia fan will very much enjoy seeing both. One cast features Donna Sheridan, Ashley Kambeitz; Sophie Sheridan, Day Bulger; Rosie Mulligan, Kelsey Earle; Tanya Chesham-Leigh, Carol Davis; Sam Carmichael, Glen Bulger; Bill Anderson, Don Hutchinson; Harry Bright, Brian Dumont; Ali (bridesmaid), Keysha Swanson; and Lisa (bridesmaid), Bhey Pastolero. The second cast features Donna Sheridan, Brittany Johnson; Sophie Sheridan, Kyra Gusdal; Rosie Mulligan, Jane Gusdal; Tanya CheshamLeigh, Susan Popik; Sam

MAMMA MIA!

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Father (Sam) and daughter (Sophie), played by Glen Bulger and Day Bulger, discuss her wedding plans in a scene from the Churchmice Players’ version of Mamma Mia! The popular musical featuring ABBA songs will be performed on the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre stage from Feb. 7 to 17.

Carmichael, Andrew Little; Bill Anderson, Todd Sikorski; Harry Bright, Ron Nease; Ali (bridesmaid), Emma-Leigh Simonot; and Lisa (bridesmaid), Rhiannon Gressler. Sky, Tyler Bergstrom; Pepper, Noel Ledesma; Eddie, Angus Guglich and Father Alex, David Downey will be in all shows. The cast of 60 members is one of the largest in the history of Churchmice. Local father and daughter, Glen Bulger and his daughter Day, are playing roles that hit home. “This is my first year with Churchmice and I wanted to be in this musical because I love ABBA songs. It is also my mother’s favourite movie, so I just knew this is something I had to do. When it was announced that they were doing Mamma Mia! my heart skipped a beat. I knew I had to do it,” said

Day, who has a history of being in choirs at the University of Alberta, Augustana Campus. “I only took one drama class, so it was challenging at first, but I learned a lot about acting through this process. I realized that I could act.” Glen first hit the stage with Churchmice with Diary of Anne Frank in 2005. “This is my fourth production with Churchmice and I was in three plays with Kelsey as well,” he said. “I haven’t been in one for five years, so I thought it was time to try it again.” Playing father and daughter in the show has some benefits. “Running the lines has been particularly easy at times, but it has been wonderful. We have a lot of families in the show, which is good for Churchmice.” Glen is excited to join his daughter. “It is prob-

ably one of the main reasons I’m in this show. I came out late, but it was great to end up playing her father in the show. Its a play, but it is easier to bounce our characters off of each other because of the fact we are actually father and daughter. I never thought of myself as a singer, so that is a stretch for me, I’m more of an actor.” The script has very few changes to the movie and play which people have grown to love over the years. “The script is reasonably close and the quality of show we have is very good. It’s going to be good,” said Glen. Both are appreciative of having a local theatre group. “It has been a welcoming environment. I wasn’t expecting people to be so open minded and ready to teach me from day one. They let you make

mistakes as you explore your character,” said day. “The pool of talent we have in Camrose and surrounding area is high, so it helps make the cast jell quickly. I commend everyone for the roles they play. Everyone from the costume designers to set designers,” added Glen. “It has been an experience to see everything come together. It is an opportunity to get away from work and be uninhibited.” Originally, Day just wanted to sing in the chorus. “It has been refreshing to come here after a tiring day of studying biology and find the energy to be part of something exciting,” shared Day. “I always dreamt of acting, but never thought much more about it.” The musical includes such hits as “Super Trouper,” “Dancing Queen,” “Knowing Me, Knowing You,” “Take a Chance on Me,” “Money, Money, Money,” “Voulez-Vous” and “SOS.” A film adaptation starring Meryl Streep, Colin Firth and Pierce Brosnan was released in July 2008. The story is based on the fictional Greek island of Kalokairi (Skopelos) as 20-year-old Sophie is preparing to marry her fiancé, Sky. She wants her father to walk her down the aisle, but doesn’t know who he is. Sophie discovers her mother’s old diary and finds entries, which describe intimate dates with three men (Sam Carmichael, Bill Austin [Anderson in the film version] and Harry Bright). Sophie believes one of these men is her father and, three months before her nuptials, sends each an invitation to her wedding, writing in her mother’s name, Donna, without letting her unsuspecting mother know. Sophie’s three possible fathers arrive and she convinces them not to tell Donna that she invited them. Donna is surprised to see her ex-lovers and leaves in tears. Sophie had hoped she would know her father the moment she saw him, but is now only confused.

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.

Hockey Vikings win two By Murray Green

The Augustana Vikings hockey team collected all four points they wanted by beating the Concordia Thunder 4-1 and 5-4 on Jan. 11 and 12. In the first match, Lukas Biensch and Travis Mayan scored for the Vikings in the opening period to take a 2-0 lead. After a scoreless middle frame, Mayan and Dillan McCombie sandwiched a Thunder marker for insurance goals. Goalie Curtis Skip picked up the win in net by stopping 21 of 22 shots he faced. Augustana counted 32 shots on Concordia. The Vikings started the second game with two straight goals, both power play markers from Adam Osczevski. Then the Thunder started to be heard. Concordia netted two shorthanded tallies to get right back in the contest. This time Concordia scored twice in the second with Jimmy Sheehan collecting the only Augustana goal. The Viking recovered in the third by adding two more goals, off the sticks of Evan Warmington and Reed Gunville. Skip turned away 25 of 29 shots, while his forwards counted 30 on the Thunder net. The Vikings host NAIT Ooks in the next home game on Jan. 26 in the Encana Arena at 6 p.m. Volleyball
