As usual, the City of Camrose has been proactive in clearing main traffic routes and side streets as well, of winter's white stuff, plus salt and sand laid down for traction. Keeping streets bladed and having snow hauled to dump sites makes for more friendly and safer seasonal driving. However, the task of clearing provides immeasurable benefit in a couple of additional important ways. Prudent snow removal means the chances of flooding from a quick spring thaw are greatly reduced. Equally important is that timely snow removal actually extends the life of all paved roadways. In the weeks of spring, daytime temperatures typically mean melting which takes place on the dark-colored pavement. Water seeping down into cracks or pavement imperfections then freezes at night meaning cracks open further; pavement then heaves or potholes develop. While numbers have not been tabulated for this year’s removal program, during the 2017/18 season, the City moved over 60,000 cubic yards (5,000 tandem truckloads) of snow from City streets. A private firm was contracted for a similar amount.

RCMP truck rammed by suspect By Lori Larsen

Delta Flight 15

On Sept. 11, 2001, 38 planes landed unexpectedly in Gander, Newfoundland, carrying almost as many people as the entire population of Gander. They stayed two days. I was deeply moved by this story, written by a flight attendant on Delta Flight 15 whose plane landed in Gander that day. The story begins with the flight crew getting the message they have to find someplace to land. Here are excerpts about what happened after they left Gander.

Camrose RCMP received a complaint from a Camrose County resident regarding a suspicious vehicle in a rural Camrose area on March 4. Camrose members were dispatched to the area to investigate information provided to the RCMP, by the complainant, that included a description of the suspect vehicle and partial

the operator of the stolen vehicle, for committing an assault on a police officer by ramming the police vehicle with the suspect vehicle. The pursuit continued out onto Highway 21 and upon observation by the RCMP members of erratic and dangerous driving of the operator of the stolen vehicle, a decision was made to discontinue the

times. These situations are highly volatile and unpredictable and the people who called in the complaints were very cautious in what they did. They didn’t interact with anyone, they safely took down the information and passed it on to us to deal with and we are thankful to both the complainants for being so aware of what was going on, obtaining

***

“…Back on the plane, we were reunited with the passengers and found out what they had been doing for the past two days… What we found out was incredible. “Gander and all the surrounding communities (within about a 75 Kilometer radius) had closed all high schools, meeting halls, lodges, and any other large gathering places. They converted all these facilities to lodging areas for all the stranded travelers… “All the high school students were required to volunteer their time to take care of the ‘guests.’ Our 218 passengers ended up in a town called Lewisporte, about 45 kilometers from Gander where they were put up in a high school… “Phone calls and e-mails to the U.S. and around the world were available to everyone once a day. During the day, passengers were offered “Excursion” trips… “Food was prepared by all the residents and brought to the schools. People were driven to restaurants of their choice and offered wonderful meals. Everyone was given tokens for local laundromats to wash their clothes, since luggage was still on the aircraft. In other words, every single need was met for those stranded travelers. “Passengers were crying while telling us these stories... “It was absolutely incredible. When passengers came on board, it was like they had been on a cruise. “Everyone knew each other by name. They were swapping stories… [about] who had the better time. Our flight back to Atlanta looked like a chartered party flight…. Passengers had totally bonded and were calling each other by their first names, exchanging phone numbers, addresses, and email addresses. “And then a very unusual thing happened. “One of our passengers approached me and asked if he could make an announcement over the PA system… He reminded everyone about what they had just gone through... He reminded them of the hospitality they had received at the hands of total strangers. He continued by saying that he would like to do something in return for the good folks of Lewisporte. “He said he was going to set up a Trust Fund under the name of DELTA 15 (our flight number). The purpose of the trust fund is to provide college scholarships for the high school students of Lewisporte. He asked for donations of any amount from his fellow travelers. When the paper with donations got back to us with the amounts, names, phone numbers and addresses, the total was for more than $14,000! “The gentleman, an MD from Virginia, promised to match the donations and to start the administrative work on the scholarship. He also said that he would forward this proposal to Delta Corporate and ask them to donate as well. “As I write this account, the trust fund is at more than $1.5 million and has assisted 134 students in college education. “I just wanted to share this story because we need good stories right now. It gives me a little bit of hope to know that some people in a faraway place were kind to some strangers who literally dropped in on them. “It reminds me how much good there is in the world. “In spite of all the rotten things we see going on in today’s world this story confirms that there are still a lot of good people in the world and when things get bad, they will come forward. “This is one of those stories that needs to be shared. Please do so.” ***

And so I have. If you’d like to read the Delta 15 flight attendant’s entire story (not just the excerpt I quote here), send an email to Bonnie@BonnieHutchinson.com and I’ll email it to you within one business day.

The matter is still under investigation and the RCMP are asking anyone who may have information regarding this incident, contact either the Camrose RCMP detachment at 780672-3341 or if you wish to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers by telephone at 1-800-22-8477 (TIPS) or online at www.tipsubmit.com. You do not need to reveal your identity when reporting to Crime Stoppers, however, if you do provide your name and contact information, it could expedite the investigation, which, if leads to an arrest, could make you eligible for a cash reward.

LEGACY PLACE

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Camrose branch of the Royal Canadian Legion treasurer and Poppy Fund chair Bill Hart presented Diana Festejo of the Legacy Place Society with $5,000 to go towards support for individuals and families of first responders and military personnel. Legacy Place offers crisis line support, housing for home away from home accommodations and workshops.

Rick Bergh

Messiah Lutheran Church of Camrose invites residents to a grief workshop to be held on Saturday, March 23 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the church, located at 4810-50 Street, featuring speaker Rick Bergh who uses narrative therapy practices to support those who are grieving. Messiah Lutheran Church of Camrose pastor, Bev Swanson spoke of the importance of sharing the journey of grief with others. “The hearing and holding of our stories together is perhaps one of the most healing things we can do with one another. That is perhaps why narrative therapy is such a powerful tool to move people to healing. As we share our stories with one another, we are also reminded that we are not alone in our journey through grieving moments.” Bergh is a Thanatologist (CT), Narrative Therapist (NT), ordained minister, speaker and best selling author. His wisdom on the topic of grief is much more than theoretical, as he draws his information from his own personal experience. After losing his (first) wife Pam to ovarian cancer, Bergh relied on the principles he shares to guide him, as well as his four children, through the process of grieving. “Narrative Therapy allows us to ask deeper questions about our identity and our personal narrative,” explains Bergh. “As such, we begin to examine our purpose, meaning, identity, and even our spirituality.” Bergh f u r t her explained that narrative therapy is highly effective in helping those who have lost a loved one. “It allows them to rediscover their most significant stories with their loved one and pen them into their next chapter moving forward. In his presentation Bergh will share with attendees the value of a narrative approach to grief and mourning. “It seeks to help people ‘expand the landscape’ to include their most valuable stories of ongoing connection and love with the person who has died. It invites re-connection through the process of re-membering– bringing their loved one close through the power of story. “Can my loved one, who has died, still be part of who I am in the future?” The answer is “yes”– through story.” Lunch will be provided during the workshop. For more information and to register, email office@messiahcamrose.ca or telephone 780-672-3444.

Prevent being scammed By Lori Larsen

Designer babies—a new twist in an old story

Can science finally produce super humans? The wish to improve the genetic quality of our species is older than our knowledge of the genetics. An old story tells us of the Spartans, who would examine newborns, especially young males destined for military service, and let any found with imperfections die of exposure. Today, we Tom Terzin, call the concept of manipuBiology, Augustana lating human genetics, for Campus, University the purpose of improving the of Alberta population, eugenics. A scientific term for a type of eugenics is “preimplantation genetic diagnosis” or PGD. During the in vitro fertilization procedure, embryos are screened before implantation in the uterus. This is not far from the Spartan tradition, except it occurs during the early development of a human embryo. In China, in November of 2018, twin baby girls, Lulu and Nana, were the first humans to be genetically edited using CRISPR CAS 9 technology. While gene therapy (a procedure of replacing mutated genes with healthy in human tissues) has existed since the 1980s, this is the first known case in which new technology was used on human beings to target and alter a healthy gene with the goal of improving human beings beyond our natural genetic makeup. This research was announced at a scientific conference in Hong Kong last November, by Chinese researcher Dr. Jiankui He. He conducted this research in secret, outside of the university, with a group of volunteer parents. The germline genome of the future babies was edited, meaning that a particular DNA sequence was precisely deleted, so that babies do not have a functional CCR5 gene. Protein coded by this gene is an entry point for HIV infection, so Dr. He’s goal was to produce genetically modified humans resistant to HIV infection. The condition to participate in Dr. He’s experiment was that a prospective father had to test HIV positive while mother tested HIV negative. Prior to the implantation of early embryos in the uterus, Dr. He performed PGD to see if the genetic change was successfully introduced. His research has not been published in any peer-reviewed journal, although it has been confirmed by the World Health Organization that the babies Lulu and Nana have indeed been genetically modified. The fact that the procedure was performed on their embryonic stem cells means that the condition is going to be inherited by the future offspring of Lulu and Nana, marking the possible point of a new and altered human population. This development will lead to many ethical debates about the role and purpose of human genetic modification. I would like to share a few of my concerns. First, if scientists are not required to express their ethical opinion about the ethical questions of research, we cannot expect them to be ethically responsible. Second, CRISPR CAS 9 technology was developed in the western world and is in broad experimental use by the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) who are responsible for the development of emerging technologies for use by the US military. We need to consider their motivations. Finally, the general population does not have any democratic say or role in the decision making when any new technology is about to affect humankind. Unfortunately, the general population, who typically places its trust in the benevolence of scientific progress, is entitled only to deal with the consequences.

When you work hard for your money, the last thing you want is for someone with criminal intent to take it away from you; so being aware of fraud, how to spot it and how to protect yourself, can save you a lot of grief and in some instances a lot of money. Camrose Police Service joins forces with the rest of Canada on recognizing March as Fraud Prevention Month and offer a few simple suggestions on how to prevent yourself from becoming a victim of fraud. “If you answer your door at home, your phone, text, use email or the Internet (which means all of us) you can be targeted by a fraudster,” said Camrose Police Service crime prevention and community relations officer, Constable Kelly Bauer. “Fraud is so prevalent in our society that we have to first ask ourselves “is this a fraud” before we proceed any further.”

now” or else the deal will go away. Or someone who seems to be trying hard to give you a “great deal” without time to answer your questions. Indicating the police will be contacted by them and you could be arrested. “The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) will never use aggressive language or threaten that police will arrest you,” explained Bauer. “They will never ask for gift cards of any kind or ask for your financial information.” Protect yourself

Stay current by educating yourself on the most recent frauds, available through the Canadian Anti-fraud Centre (CAFC) or by inquiring with your local policing agencies. Be aware of recovery scams which target victims of crimes a second and third time, promising to assist in recovering money previously lost.

cy you are dealing with and not a fraudulent one. NEVER give out personal information either by way of email, telephone, or in person to someone you do not know and trust. If you’re scammed

If you think you or someone you know has been the victim of fraud, you begin by gathering all the information you can about the suspected fraud, including documents, receipts, copies of emails and/or text messages, record of time and date of contact by scammers, description of scammers including voice description if contact was made via telephone and report the incident to your local police agency. Contact the Canadian Anti-fraud Centre to report the incident toll free at 1-888495-8501 or through the Fraud Reporting System (FRS) online at http://www.antifraucentrecentreantifraude.ca.

Camrose Police Service crime prevention/community relations officer Constable Kelly Bauer

Warning signs

The old adage of “If it is too good to be true, then it probably isn’t true,” couldn’t be more true of scams and fraud. If the deal or offer sends up red flags, then never second guess and stop it in its tracks. Some warning signs of possible fraud or scam include the following. Telephone calls or emails that claim to be from the government, asking you to pay money or pay your taxes up front to receive a prize or a gift. Requesting money be sent to them via courier, or put money on a prepaid card or gift card, such as ITunes cards) and sent to them with codes off the cards. Requesting access to your bank accounts through your ATM cards, credit cards or investment accounts. Pressuring you to “act

Be pro-active. Educate family, friends, neighbours and co-workers on mass marketing frauds. You may prevent someone else from becoming a victim. When in doubt, check it out. Buy some time and you could save yourself a lot of worry and money in the long run.

“Y

our best defence is you.

Ask questions of the person who is trying to scam you. If they are evasive with their answers or just talk over your questions, hang up. Pay close attention to the email and website domain names and addresses. Sca mmers will use what appears to be legitimate names of organizations such as Revenue Canada, so always double check to make sure it is the agen-

If a financial transaction transpired, report the incident immediately to the financial institution where the money was sent (such as Western Union or MoneyGram, bank or credit union, credit card company or internet payment service provider). If you were victimized online through Facebook, eBay, classified ads on Kijiji or a dating website, report the incident directly to the website provider. These details can be found under “report abuse” or “report an ad.” If you were the victim of identity fraud, immediately place flags on all your accounts, credit cards and other major forms of identification and report to both credit bureaus, Equifax and TransUnion. “Your best defense is you,” reminded Const. Bauer. “Be vigilant and protect yourself by being knowledgeable in how scammers operate.”

Fashions, fun and fund raising a wonderful combination for a great evening out on the town. On Thursday, March 21, join the Hospice Society of Camrose and District for the second annual Fashion For Funds fashion show and fundraiser to be held at the Camrose Resort Casino beginning at 6 p.m. Local Camrose clothiers will be highlighting spring and summer fashions, as well as a nostalgic peek at ensembles of yesteryear. The event will be held in the Ballroom and includes food, a 50/50 draw, silent auction and door prizes, not to mention a glimpse forward into fashion trends and backward into fashions forgotten. All funds raised from tickets sales and the evening inclusions go towards the Hospice Society of Camrose and District. Hospice Society of Camrose and District program coordinator Bill Harder explains the importance of such events and community donations in the continual work Hospice does to serve Camrose and surrounding area. “People will ask, ‘What happens to my donation at the Fashion for Funds event?’ so I explain that a grieving child is supported in their loss. A woman at end of life dies surrounded by compassion. A parent whose child has died receives care. Dollars fund operations which empowers volunteers which changes the world.” For more information on the Fashion For Funds event or the Hospice Society of Camrose and District and the programs offered, visit the website at www.camrosehospice.org.

Aquatic Centre renovation and expansion behind schedule By Lori Larsen

Structural issues with the roof above the existing pool, at the Aquatic Centre, have caused a minimum of a five-month delay to the completion date of the Aquatic Centre Renovation and Expansion Project. During the March 4 regular council meeting, City of Camrose community services general manager, Ryan Poole presented council with an update on the project. “During demolition of the interior of the existing Aquatic Centre building, specifically the area about the pool, where the waterslide was located, the general contractor, Clark Builders discovered some issues with the brackets holding the beams of the interior roof, causing safety concerns.” City administration secured the services of Wood Research Designs

(WRD)to conduct inspections and testing of the roof structure. During the inspection of the roof, WRD installed temporary shoring to secure the roof safely which, due to the location, halted Clark Builders from demolishing the existing pool floor and working on that particular area of the project. “Clark Builders managed to do some changes in their timeline and keep the ball rolling during the inspection,” explained Poole. Poole said that on the recommendation of administration, WRD also tested a few other areas within the existing Aquatic centre, including the change room and front lobby areas, to determine if there were any issues in other areas. “The main pool area, the public change rooms and front lobby area tests have

come back and Clark Builders, along with BR 2 Architecture services will have some recommendations and estimates for the roof repairs, along with some options on the main area where the waterslide used to be located.” Administration suggested to Clark Builders to present a list of concerns on findings of all areas and recommendations for full repairs, in an effort to avoid any surprises that may occur later in the renovations. “We will then present all of these options to council at the next council meeting where we will have Clark Builders and BR2 Architecture present, to answer questions.” Poole said that while this discovery and subsequent inspection has set the project behind schedule by five months to date, the con-

tractor hopes to be able to make up some of the lost time and that administration proposed to Clark Builders the feasibility of being far enough along in 2020, to allow the Swim Club and other program groups in on time for their seasons. Councillor Wayne Throndson asked if the projected completion date would now be March or April 2020. Poole indicated that as long as there are no further delays and they can get the roof and shoring done as quickly as possible, that is the proposed timeline. T hrondson also inquired as to whether there have been any advance claims made by Clark Builders. Poole replied, “To date, there have been no claims for advance due to delay, but there will eventually be a cost tacked on

at the end of the project. “Every month that they are delayed, they have onsite costs–a flat rate that they have to pay the staff.” Throndson asked about the cost of those charges. Poole said, “Right now, their estimate is about $90,000 per each month of delay.” Throndson noted, “So the cost of $450,000 plus is simply the cost of delay that is tacked on the project with no additional benefit?” Poole replied yes. With reference to the $500,000 additional contingency that was approved by council in November 2018, Throndson suggested to council that they consider increasing the contingency again once the report on the roof is presented in two weeks time. “I think we should revisit what that budget is looking like.” Continued on page 14

Farming is unique right down to the way you manage your dollars and cents. Every farmer knows that lining up the timing of your input purchases won’t necessarily coincide with the ideal market conditions for selling your product. And that puts you in the position of either selling at what could be a lower price than anticipated, or financing your crop through a production loan with interest rates that shrink your margins. On September 1 2018, The Alberta Wheat Commission (AWC) launched FarmCash, a competitive cash advance option under the Federal Government’s Advance Payments Program (APP). Our motive for launching FarmCash was simple: the APP tool helps farmers manage cash flow to avoid these challenges and improve profitability. The APP is designed with the uniqueness of agriculture in mind. This federal loan guarantee program provides producers with easy access to low-interest advances. Through FarmCash, producers can apply for advances of up to $400,000 per program year with the first $100,000 interest 19032AA1 free. Producers can apply for advances on 45 commodities including all major crops, honey and livestock with a one-time application fee of $50. FarmCash offers lower interest rates than you’ll find through chartered banks and other financial institutions, and at 18 months for grains oilseeds and honey and 24 months for livestock, the repayment period is more forgiving. That extra time gives farmers more power to keep their product in storage until market conditions are right, also serving as a risk management strategy for any unplanned events like rail delays. In going through our due diligence process prior to launching FarmCash, AWC learned that the uptick from farmers on the APP could be stronger. With the sheer volume of cash flowing through your operation at any given time, having a tool designed specifically for your needs is essential. With that in mind, AWC designed a cash advance option for Alberta producers to help grow awareness of this valuable tool and foster improved returns. Through the development phase, we mapped out a way to make the FarmCash application process more user friendly and less time consuming. Our platform is simple, convenient and streamlined. The application is fully automated, taking you through a step-by-step process that is slimmed down to show only the information relevant to you. You can also apply by downloading the application and emailing it to farmcash@albertawheat.com, by speaking to a FarmCash representative at 1-855-376-2274, by faxing it at 403-717-1966, or in person at AWC’s Calgary office. FarmCash will issue your payment within 3-5 business after receiving your completed application. Further, AWC’s FarmCash business model is transparent: if AWC sees any profit from administering FarmCash, it will be returned to benefit the entire agriculture industry in Alberta. To learn more about FarmCash and how can we help you manage your financial obligations, please call our office at 1-855-376-2274 or visit www.farmcashadvance.com.

Poole added that the cost so far for the shoring and having the research company come in and conduct the inspections has used up the original $500,000 project contingency. “The two contingencies added

together (original approved with project in May and November 2018 additional contingency) has not been used up. The initial $500,000 was just enough to cover the work that has been done to date,” which Poole said included the abatement and the testing.

Throndson asked if the $90,000 per month delay costs proposed by Clark Builders includes any subtrades. Poole said Clark Builders will be carefully going over all claims by subtrades to determine their legitimacy.

The findings of the WRD testing and inspection, along with recommendations to remedy the issues, will be presented to council during the March 18 council meeting.

Shiplett shares his new music in Camrose By Murray Green

You can be one of the first people to listen to JJ Shiplett’s new songs from his upcoming album at the Bailey Theatre. Rose City Roots Music Society brought in Shiplett to play on Saturday, March 16 beginning at 8 p.m. to offer a preview of his new CD that is expected to be released in April. Shiplett has been said to be rugged, raspy and reserved. He is a true artist in every sense of the word. Unapologetically himself, the Alberta-born singersongwriter and performer is both bold in range and musical creativity and has a passion and reverence for the art of music and performance that has captured the attention of music fans across the country. Shiplett is following up from his 2017 album Something To Believe In.

Arrogant Worms to perform iconic song By Murray Green

The band Arrogant Worms were put on the music map in Canada with its iconic party hit, “The Last Saskatchewan Pirate.” You can hear the song and band live when the Arrogant Worms perform on Monday, March 18 beginning at 7:30 p.m. at the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre. They write songs to make fun of every day life. The band (Mike McCormick, Chris Patterson and Trevor Strong) still have plenty to sing about. The shows are fast, furious and family friendly. The wit is quick, the satire is biting and the musicianship is second to none. The Arrogant Worms have 13 albums out now since they started entertaining throughout the country.

learn new steps and learn the way they perform. It is different from the way we dance and the way professionals do it. I’m really excited,” said Abby, 15. “It’s a cool experience for us to be with professional dancers. I hope to learn steps, arm positions and be able to learn different ways to perform,” added Brooklyn. The dancers have great instructors in Camrose, but learning from professional working artists from across Canada is an experience they didn’t want to pass up. “I think they can add more technique to what we have already learned,” said Abby. “They have more modern experience of being on stage everyday. They know the techniques and have experience of making it a career every day,” Ballet Jörgen’s Coppélia features local dancers, from left, explained BrookBrooklyn Pattullo, Lacey Byce, Janaya Iverson, Jessi Ka Daniels and lyn, 13. By Murray Green

Ballet Jörgen is bringing the classic tale of Coppélia, a doll that comes to life, to the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre on March 14 beginning at 7:30 p.m. Local dancers from the Camrose Academy of Dance and Ballet Camrose will join professional performers from Ballet Jörgen to learn new dance steps and train with professional dancers.

It is an opportunity of a lifetime for five local dancers. Brooklyn Pattullo, Lacey Byce, Janaya Iverson, Jessi Ka Daniels and Abby Skjaveland will play various parts in the story. “It’s really amazing because we are such a small city and for a big ballet production to come here is really cool and more so to get the opportunity to perform with them.

The girls could have roles as dolls or creatures. “You have to pay attention to the role you are given and pick it up easily. You can’t stand there not knowing what you are doing. When the director says something, you should know it. I go to a lot of workshops where we work on things to be prepared. This opportunity gives me a first hand look at dance and if I want to do it in the future professionally. It inspires me to be like a professional. I feel that I can connect with them. I know for sure that I want to teach dance and give something back to all of the little dancers that I’m going to teach,” suggested Abby. “You need to pick up on things and really learn your role. It is motivational to know that you are good enough to dance with professionals. It is a great experience to have. I feel learning and working hard on techniques will really help me. I would love the opportunity to be a professional for a few years, if I could, and teach dance as well,” shared Brooklyn. “I hope this experience improves my dancing and this is an amazing opportunity. I look up to Ballet Jörgen because they are a Canadian company. They show you don’t have to move away, but you can dance professionally in Canada,” concluded Abby. “I welcome the experience to learn better techniques. If ever I was good enough to be a professional, it is good to know you can dance in Canada and stay close to home,” said Brooklyn.

Brent Butt loved his stop in Camrose two years ago and his sold-out two shows at the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre. So much so, that he decided to include another visit this spring. He will be on stage March 19 at 7:30 p.m. The Corner Gas creator and star of the International Emmy Award nominated hit has also been in several television series, movies and comedy specials over the years.

“Corner Gas was a lot of work and a lot of fun. I miss the camaraderie of the cast, but it was the right time to leave the live action when we did, so that helps,” said Brent, prior to his show in 2017. “I have a production company and the idea is to stay in the game, keep making television shows and movies.” It was a busy time for him. “After each season, I would hit the road (comedy tour) because it is my favourite thing to do,” continued Brent. “In a perfect world, I

would be allowed to do both. Live performance is really the hub for me. Getting up in front of a live audience and trying to be funny is where I learned to be funny. The less time I’m away from that, the less chance I have of making a funny show or movie. If you are doing a single camera production with no audience, you are really relying on your experience of what makes people laugh,” he added. “The hub of everything is stand-up comedy. That allows me to do everything else.”

Audrey Mae Hitman December 5, 1939 ~ March 1, 2019 Audrey Hitman of Camrose, Alberta passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Friday, March 1, 2019 at the age of 79 years after a courageous battle with cancer. Audrey will be lovingly remembered by her children David (Noreene and family) Hitman, Kathy (Chris) Gerritsen, Sharon Thomson and Robin Hitman; grandchildren Kristen, Nicholas, Stephanie and Erik; siblings Gary (Susan) Johanson and Shirley Latimer; and numerous nieces and nephews. Audrey was predeceased by her parents Peter and Frances Johanson; and brother Kenneth Johanson. Audrey lived a full life as an amazing mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. Her whole life was dedicated to her community and she never missed an opportunity to lend a helping hand. She was a true inspiration as a foster parent for over twenty years and as a volunteer at the Camrose Food Bank and Camrose Crisis Line. In 2015, Audrey was nominated for a provincial Minister’s Senior Citizen Award and was recognized by the City of Camrose for her contributions to the betterment of the community. Audrey’s true passion in life was nurturing over one hundred international students who lived with her over the last thirty years. Countless hours were spent working on their English skills, helping with school assignments and teaching them to drive. She enjoyed spending her winters in the arena cheering on her Japanese hockey players. Audrey was blessed to be able to travel to many countries around the world to visit her “kids” and their families. Audrey’s favorite memories were the times spent at the cabin in British Columbia with her family. She was also the master of scouting out treasures at garage sales, loved singing along to Burton Cummings and Neil Diamond and could play a mean game of crib. Most of all, she adored her family and instilled strong values and traditions that have and always will be a big part of their lives. Her four grandchildren were the loves of her life. She cherished the time that she spent as their biggest fan at dance competitions and recitals, hockey, soccer and basketball games. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts. A Celebration of her Life was held at Messiah Lutheran Church on Monday, March 11, 2019. If family or friends so desire, memorial contributions in Audrey’s memory may be made to the Camrose Food Bank or to the Cross Cancer Institute. To send condolences, please visit www.burgarfuneralhome.com.

Byron Olson November 26, 1935 ~ February 26, 2019 Byron Olson passed away peacefully on Tuesday, February 26, 2019 at the age of 83. Despite a diagnosis of Early Onset Parkinson’s in his 40s, Byron’s mental resilience, perseverance, strength, and creativity allowed him to maintain a lifelong engagement with the theatre and a rich output of art and architecture. Byron was born on November 26, 1935 to Elmer and Cecelia Olson in Camrose, Alberta, the second oldest of five children. Byron graduated from the UBC School of Architecture and worked for the esteemed architectural firm of Erickson and Massey. He later established his own firm and became part of the innovative planning and design team of the Britannia Community Centre in Vancouver. He designed many public buildings and private residences in the Lower Mainland and the Kootenays, including the Kimberley and Sparwood Public Libraries, Trickle Creek Golf Clubhouse, and the Cranbrook Alliance Church. Byron’s love of wilderness and the environment informed many of his ecologically friendly designs. While at UBC, Byron was very involved in the Varsity Outdoor Club (VOC). He was an accomplished mountaineer, enjoyed skiing, rock climbing and building cabins in unique and surprising places. He scaled Mount Waddington twice and was active in mountain rescue. Byron’s love of adventure and travel took him all over the world. In Byron’s later years, he dedicated more time to painting, drawing, and cartooning. He wrote many plays which were produced by Cranbrook and Kimberley Community Theatres. One of his proudest moments was winning Best Director in BC for his work directing the play Oleana at the Mainstage Festival (2004). Byron will be remembered for his kindness, sense of humour, and community engagement. His actions and the legacy of his buildings will continue to inspire and touch the lives of many. Byron is survived by his soul mate Penny Ohanjanian; daughters Oona (Jordan) and Rebecca and son Aaron; grandchildren Charlie and Benjamin; sister Donna (Bob) Luce; brothers Dr. Ted Olson and Daryl (Leslie) Olson; and numerous nieces and nephews. There will be a CELEBRATION OF BYRON’S LIFE on Sunday, March 24, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. at Centre 64 in Kimberley.

Elizabeth “Betty” Ann Marks June 24, 1944 ~ March 3, 2019 Betty was born to George and Josephine Shute in Camrose, Alberta on June 24, 1944. She was born into a large farming family in the Dinant area where she attended school, first in Dinant and then in Round Hill. After graduating, she pursued a career as a nursing aid. She worked in hospitals in and around the Breton/Drayton Valley area where she met Fred Marks. Fred and Betty were married in Camrose on July 9, 1966 and proceeded to start a life together. Fred and Betty had three sons Jim, Kevin and Scott. After living in several places, they settled down to country life, ten miles north of Camrose. Betty had several careers in her time, but the one she enjoyed the most was being a mother and wife. Albeit, it was very trying for her at times as all four men in the house could be quite a handful! She thoroughly enjoyed working in her garden, tending to the various plants and flowers. Betty also enjoyed working outside of the house at the Camrose Booster where she made many lifelong friends. But what she enjoyed the most was being surrounded by her grandchildren, nieces, nephews, sisters, brothers and friends. She lived her life the way she wanted to, surrounded by the ones she loved. She had a big heart, a beautiful smile and will be sorely missed. She leaves to mourn her sons Kevin and Scott (Rebecca); three grandchildren Aarika, Violet and Joseph; and numerous sisters, brothers, nieces, nephews and friends. Betty was predeceased by her husband Fred; son Jim; brother Ken; and her parents George and Josephine. A Funeral Service was held at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 7, 2019 from Burgar Memorial Chapel with Rev. Brian Hunter officiating. Inurnment has taken place in Valleyview Cemetery, Camrose. In lieu of flowers, if family and friends so desire, memorial contributions in Betty’s memory may be made to the Sandra Schmirler Foundation (18 Burndale Road Ottawa, ON K1B 3Y5).

Best made trucks little easier to restore By Murray Green

It’s no secret that the late 1960s and early 1970s Chevrolet and GMC trucks are among the best vehicles ever built. Restoring them is easy to do with so many of the trucks still on the road today. Parts are everywhere. They are easy to work on. It doesn’t bother Ben Schiere of Edberg that his 1972 Chevrolet C10 is not the only model featured at local car shows. The trucks are as popular today as when they were built. “I have always loved this style of truck,” said Ben. It brings back memories for me and everyone who stops by to view at car shows.” The C/K was Chevrolet and GMC’s full-size pickup truck line from October 1959 until 2000 in the United States and Canada. The C indicated two-wheel drive and K indicated fourwheel drive. The truck was too good to part out. “I bought this truck from a guy I was working with at the time. He was rebuilding one and this was his parts truck. It was too good to be a parts truck, so I bought it from him and ended up fixing it up slowly,” said Ben. “I just started a new job, so I didn’t have the money to fix everything right away.” He worked on it for about 10 years before fin-

PARTS TRUCK

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Ben Schiere didn’t want this good looking truck to end up as a parts vehicle, so he bought it to restore to its glory days from 1972. He added some modern extras to his working man’s truck and Ben enjoys going to local car shows.

ishing it into the truck he wanted. “I actually thought at the time that they were rare. I was wrong, it seems like everybody has one. They were built to last,” said Ben.

FUN FACTS

The 1972 models were very similar to the 1971 models, with the only change being the rear view mirror was glued to the windshield rather than bolted to top of the cab, and metal or vinyl-covered flat door panels were no longer available; all trim level door panels were molded plastic with integral armrests and wood grain inserts on Cheyenne and Sierra trim levels. Internal differences include a new door panel design and the addition of a strengthening screw on the inside of the door below the vent window division bar. Although one is produced by Chevrolet and the other by GMC, both trucks fall under the General Motors umbrella. The two trucks share many similarities when it comes to the drivetrain and the overall appearance. However, they still have their fair share of differences. Two-wheel-drive, long-box trucks are the easiest examples to find these days as they were produced in the greatest quantities. Four-wheel-drive pickups are considerably rarer, especially short-wheelbase halftons. In the case of the Blazer, four-wheel drives are the norm and two-wheel-drive Blazers, introduced in 1970, are unusual.

“I lowered this one a little bit to take the up look out of it. I put a 350 motor in it with an automatic transmission. It had a six cylinder standard in it. I had it off frame and re-did everything and put it all back together,” Ben said. He added a few things to the truck. “I put power brakes on instead of the manual disc brakes. I also added power steering to improve the handling and duel exhaust. I just added basic things that you would add when you fix older vehicles.” In 1971, the front brakes on all light-duty trucks were switched from drum brakes to disc brakes, resulting in much less brake fade under heavy use. He likes to share his builds with other people. “I like to go to the local shows. I don’t like the long shows in the heat all day. I like to go to Camrose, Round Hill, Johnson Beach and Bawlf,” said Ben.

For restoration, it should also be noted that the door and window cranks were slightly longer due to the molded plastic door panels, and the vent windows

were now secured with a single screw on the inside of the door, thus differentiating it from the 1971 model year.

The biggest story at the Canada Winter Games in Red Deer was how Team Alberta captured gold medals for Alberta. The sport drew huge crowds at the Gary W. Harris Centre as Team Alberta went undefeated. It surpassed more popular sports such as hockey. Team Alberta wheelchair basketball were led by three Camrose players Bradon Doll, Jayna Doll (brother and sister) and Jamie Cole. In fact, Bradon Doll was the captain and leading scorer in the tournament.

Alberta broke records at Canada Winter Games By Murray Green

It was an historic Winter Games for Team Alberta and for local athletes. Team Alberta wheelchair basketball players Bradon Doll, Jayna Doll (brother and sister) and Jamie Cole highlighted Camrose on the map by earning gold medals at the 2019 Canada Winter Games in Red Deer, from Feb. 14 to 23. Team Alberta surpassed the all-time medals count for the province with 100 medals, including a record 36 gold, 33 silver and 31 bronze. They finished third behind Quebec and Ontario. Wheelchair basketball electrified the sold-out crowd by winning the gold medal against a tough opponent from Ontario, the first gold medal for Alberta since 1995 for that sport. Alberta won 59-54 in preliminary action against Ontario, so the players had some stiff competition to earn the gold. Ontario created the upset in the semi-final by giving Quebec its first loss of the tournament. Brandon Doll had a huge game scoring 29 points. Team Ontario came out strong from the initial minutes of play and posted a 14-9 lead after the initial quarter. Resilient and determined to win this game in front of their fans, Team Alberta bounced back in the second quarter to show a 25-20 lead at halftime. Both teams rallied

back and forth, and Ontario narrowed the Alberta lead to only two points at entering the last quarter. The battle continued in the ultimate quarter In a match that showed equal strength in all areas of play, Team Alberta ended up being on the winning side, at 51-48 on the final buzzer. “The city of Red Deer has done such a great job with these Canada Games. We’ve been supported since Day 1. The crowds just kept getting bigger and bigger, Darrell Nordell, head coach of Team Alberta. “The very first Canada Games [for Wheelchair Basketball] was in 1995 in Grande Prairie. The games were actually played in Jasper. Alberta won the gold then, at home. To win this gold medal once again in our home province makes it so special.” Bradon Doll, the tournament’s leading scor-

er with 140 points, was proud of Team Alberta’s accomplishments. “The support of our fans really helped us pull through. All the hard work and effort the team has put in paid off, and it feels great to share this moment with the team and the home crowd.” The last time Alberta won the gold medal in wheelchair basketball was when the sport was introduced into the Canada Games program. Team Alberta easily advanced to the gold medal game in wheelchair basketball, with a 56-37 win against New Brunswick in semifinal action. Tournament top scorer in the round robin, Bradon Doll once again delivered an exceptional performance with 26 points in the victory. The Alberta wheelchair basketball team ended the round robin with a perfect

4-0 record with a 64-30 win against Nova Scotia. In biathlon, Augustana Vikings athlete Michio Green came in 13th in the men’s sprint and 14th in the individual event. In cross-country skiing, Viking athlete Mackenzie Grove was 16th in the women’s sprint. Alberta also took home the Centennial Cup for showing greatest improvement, and the Jack Pelech Award for best combination of good sportsmanship, fair play, cooperation and competitive performance. The Games were held in Red Deer from Feb. 15 to March 3. “Congratulations to all of the athletes, coaches and support staff on Team Alberta, as well as the City of Red Deer, for your historic 2019 Canada Winter Games. The province is thrilled to celebrate your accomplishments and excited for

your future success,” said Rachel Notley, Premier. “As the minister responsible for sport, I couldn’t be more proud of our athletes’ inspiring display of strength, courage and skill. There were many surprises and a few heartbreaks along the way, but our athletes and everyone involved helped make these Games among the best in recent memory. This was our moment and you made us all proud,” said Ricardo Miranda, minister of culture and tourism. The Canada Games is the nation’s largest multisport and culture event for amateur athletes. It is held every two years, alternating between winter and summer events. Alberta previously hosted the Games in Grande Prairie in 1995 and in Lethbridge in 1975.

Goalie Kyle Dumba made 33 of 34 saves for the Kodiaks. Camrose recorded 27 shots on goal. The Eagles flew away with the extra point in a 3-2 shootout game on

Mckenzie Welke netted a tally early in the middle frame, only to have the eagles score later in the period to tie the game. After a scoreless third and overtime, the contest was decided in the shoot-

out. Goalie Griffin Bowerman stopped 35 of 37 shots directed his way, while his teammates fired 28 on the Canmore net. If a game five of the series is necessary, it is scheduled for Wednesday, March 13 at 7 p.m. in the Encana Arena.

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.

Harsh winter hard on wildlife By Lori Larsen

This unusually cold January, February and March has not only taken its toll on us but may have an adverse affect on the local wildlife as well. During extreme cold weather conditions ungulates such a deer, elk and moose have a more difficult time surviving and in an effort to provide themselves with nutrition will turn to food sources that are not natural to their behavior of grazing and foraging. “These wildlife (especially deer and elk) will herd up and travel in herds to easily available food sources that include farmers’ and ranchers’ feed stacks (hay, silage and green feed),” explained Camrose Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Branch District Officer Lorne Rinkel. “It doesn’t do wildlife any good to herd up. They do it out of necessity. Herding allows for easier travel in the snow and less calories burnt, but subjects the animals to being targeted by predators.” Unfortunately the results of herding up are frustrated producers who lose costly feed to the wildlife (wildlife crop depredation) and the wildlife themselves, who in the case of deer, especially, are not meant to feed off these food sources.

“An elk’s internal system is fairly good at digesting the feed from feed stacks but deer and other wildlife species such as pronghorns (not common in Camrose area), do not have the flora in their guts to properly digest hay or green feed. “So they will eat and eat and defecate, but they do not retain sufficient nutrition to survive in the long run,” said Rinkel. “In April, like clockwork, after a harsh winter

FWEB District Officer Lorne Rinkel

like we have had this year, a good deal of these animals will die because their bodies did not process the feed properly.” Rinkel explained that when he finds dead deer, elk or moose that appear to have died for unknown reasons (usually in April) he will examine one of the animals bones to deter-

mine the colour of the bone marrow. “White bone marrow indicates healthy marrow but if the marrow is red and looks like jelly there was a zero chance the animal would have ever recovered to good health.” Rinkel highly suspects that this coming spring he will see some winter kill of these animals. “The moose do the best in these harsh conditions because they are tall and can browse on tree branches, but deer (white tail followed by mule deer) are the most susceptible, followed by elk.” R in kel f u r ther explained that herding up and feeding off feed stacks is more likely to occur in the northern part of his district. “Up near Miquelon Lake, over towards Vegreville we see more wildlife crop depredation because it is flatter and more wind swept.” The snowpack is harder and crustier making it difficult for the wildlife to forage for food. “We get some south of Camrose but not nearly as much as north of Camrose.” With the amount of snowpack and continual low temperatures the hopes of spring grass for wildlife to graze on may still be a while off.

Located near west end shopping and services and the golf course, this beautifully maintained half duplex would be the ideal home for retirement, semi-retirement or as a great starter family home. The stylish curb appeal on this duplex welcomes you to the home as you step inside the bright open floor plan. Gorgeous hardwood floors lead you through to the elegant living room, where you can soak up the natural light pouring in from the bay window area while being warmed by the gas fireplace. The combination kitchen and dining area has plenty of room for entertaining or enjoying family meals. Granite countertops, beautiful cabinets and stainless appliances add a sense of style and class in the kitchen. A patio

door leads off the dining area to your own private deck and backyard. A two-piece powder room and den complete the main floor. The second floor is an area to which to retreat after a long day, with a main fourpiece bathroom, two bedrooms and a master bedroom with its own fourpiece en suite. The basement level of the home has a large family room area that could serve as both a TV area and home gym, another bedroom, two-piece bathroom and a storage room.
