Three to one odds and black silk boxer shorts

Yes there’s a connection. I’ll get to it. I’ve been thinking about “three to one odds” and “black silk boxer shorts” because of notes I received in the past week. Last week’s column had a story about a Japanese railway company that apologized because a train left the station 25 seconds early. The company’s president said, “The great inconvenience we placed upon our customers was truly inexcusable.” I wished some North American businesses acted like they believed customer convenience mattered. A few people wrote to tell me about being inconvenienced. For example… “How about trying to use points on an airline loyalty program? Aspects that always irritate me: “1. Having to wait up to an hour and a half on hold just to talk to someone to book a flight? Yes, me! “2. Then being told they could get me back from Hawaii on the date I wanted, but couldn’t get me over there on points until two weeks after the time I needed to be back home? “3. Receiving advice that your long-accumulated points, in hopes of a flight beyond short-haul, are going to expire. “I got so frustrated with trying to use so-and-so points, that I stopped using their cards. This made their ‘loyalty’ cards counter-productive. “Grumble, grumble.” ***

I clucked my tongue and started remembering other irritating experiences with certain businesses. Here’s where three to one odds comes in. I read somewhere that when you see something that makes you feel not good (mad, sad, frustrated, discouraged, judgmental, whatever…), you need to be exposed to at least three happy things to compensate for the one negative. I don’t know if that’s true. I do know that it often seems easier to fixate on what bothers me rather than what I appreciate. Three to one odds could be right. What with lots of things in the news these days that, to put it kindly, I wish were different, I started searching my mind for feel-good stories of happy customer service. ***

Flashback. My mom heard a rumour that one of her male relatives was impressed with black silk boxer shorts newly arrived in a local men’s wear store. His birthday was coming up. Mom phoned the men’s wear store. (Yes they knew her.) She asked if she could buy black silk boxer shorts for her male relative. (Yes they knew him.) And, would they mind picking out a pair that would fit him? (Yes they knew his size.) Would they also gift wrap them? (Of course.) She thanked the store clerk and said someone would drop by with a cheque and pick up the package. (Of course they accepted her cheque.) Now that is customer convenience! As a side bar, somehow word got around about the telephone purchase. On the day of the male relative’s birthday, walking down Main Street, he kept running into people who said, “Happy Birthday! Are you wearing your black silk boxer shorts?” That is life in a smaller community.

My wife and I went to the candidate’s forum, which was held at the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Centre. There were seven candidates who are running in this area. Because there are three parties on the right, why did we bother to merge the Wildrose Party with the Progressive Conservatives? Somehow, some of the Wildrose Party who did not agree with the majority about the merger, now have formed a new replacement party called, The Alberta Advantage Party. The Freedom Conservatives were formed by one of the Wildrose Party’s members who also did not agree with the direction of our new United Conservative Party. So, the problem of the Conservative vote being split in the end was not solved, but recreated. I really do believe that it is possible that because of the Conservative vote being split, the NDP will go up the middle to form the next government. So, I do thank all of those who redid the solution, which we tried to do in order to avoid the NDP from getting back in. This is one of the most depressing elections, which I have ever faced. So if because of all these other Conservative parties causes us to get another NDP government, it will be your fault and not mine. This was what we were trying to avoid. Thanks a lot. Lorne Vanderwoude, Camrose Hospital stay

A few weeks ago I was a patient at the Red Deer Hospital. It was there that I witnessed first hand abuse from a patient toward nursing staff. I was only in my room one hour after recovery when her daughters and grandchild came in for a visit.

The grandchild turned the room into a playground and the patient (grandmother) and the child’s mother didn’t control him. After they left this woman, she called for help to go to the washroom. A male nurse came in only to be kicked out as she didn’t want any man seeing her backside. Next a female nurse came in to assist and she was told she was useless and she was rudely told to get out. Next this patient picked up her walker and threw it at the wall. More nurses came in to calm this patient down. She wanted them to lift her off the bed, they explained her recovery needs to her. Then she wanted a bed pan because she didn’t want to move. Next she stated that she’d teach them a lesson and gathered up a bed sheet and peed in her bed, so the nurses would have to clean up after her. Because of this woman’s verbal and physical abuse, a security guard was placed outside my room for protection for the nurses and me. The next day she was discharged if she could get out of bed and move on her own. She said, she had been and went home. Thank God, I did a happy dance when she left. To patients—its good to get mobile as soon as possible to avoid stiffness. Nurses and doctors are professionals. They had the knowledge to go to university for a career. They are career people who have your health as their and your top agenda. They should be treated with respect and not be a servant. Before I was discharged, I spoke with two head nurses about what I saw and heard and made it clear that the patient was totally rude and the nurses did noth-

ing wrong. So to the nurses, thank you for all you do. Cougar Klug, Camrose Climate change

There is only one issue in the upcoming election. Forget the economy, health, education or ethical leadership. None of those matter if the world doesn’t begin to deal effectively with climate change. The scientific evidence is clear and there is no time to lose. Ignorance is no longer an excuse. In 2018, the average Canadian was responsible for three times the amount of green house gases as the average Chinese. After a slow start, no country is moving faster on climate change than China and they are doing so because it is their own economic self interest. Its also in Alberta’s self interest to act. We have the technology, we don’t have to give up any comforts and adapting will create jobs and stimulate our economy. Every jurisdiction, large or small, has to choose whether to continue to be part of problem or to become part of the solution. It is that simple. In that light, there is one party that stands out. In refusing to accept even a carbon tax, the basic first step to modernizing our economy, the UCP is, quite simply, morally unfit to govern. As such, election of the UCP would represent a significant blow to Alberta’s future economic health. If we have kids, if we care about the future, this is a vital election and we can’t get it wrong. We as citizens must vote for the party that has the strongest platform to tackle climate change. Alberta depends upon it. Rob Hill, Camrose


Back to customer convenience and service. I remembered two instances of convenience and service–from large companies. I once bought a sunlamp that didn’t work. Months later I took it back. I hadn’t kept the receipt so wasn’t expecting a refund, but wanted them to dispose of it. The chain store clerk asked when I bought it (early January). She found the record, issued a refund and helped me find a different cheaper sunlamp that did work. I walked out with a new sunlamp and a credit at the store! On the day of the incident that triggered last week’s column, I was in a telecom store. While I was kept on hold by another telecom, the people in the store worked out how I could get another device and a new phone and pay less every month. They also set up my new phone to make sure everything worked. Impressive! Three happy customer service stories. Enough to compensate. One more thing. When I started to look for happy things, I felt happier. ***

I’d love to hear from you! If you have comments about this column or suggestions for future topics, send a note to I’ll happily reply within one business day.

Spring Exercises (Graduation)



April 17th

at 7:30 pm • Library Learning Commons Area

ÉCCHS is asking any parents, guardians, and graduates that are participating in our spring exercises in May 2019 and May 2020 to attend.

The meeting will follow Parent Teacher Interviews that evening.

If I sound like a broken record, it is because what I am going to talk about deserves to be repeated. The Liberal government has broken promise after promise and it is extremely important that they are held accountable for leading Canadians down the garden path especially when it comes to the deficit and balanced budgets. As they promised in the 2015 election, Federal Budget 2019 was supposed to be the year the Liberals eliminated the deficit and balanced the budget. That promise, as so many others, is in tatters. The deficit for this fiscal year is projected to be $19.8 billion. A debt of $705.4 billion is the direct result of three years in a row of Liberal deficits being added to the debt. Shockingly, our debt is predicted to rise to $761 billion in 2024. Comparatively, in our last year in government, we had a surplus the Liberals inherited, but squandered away. Federal Budget 2019 is nothing more than a sprinkling of billions of taxpayers’ dollars to distract Canadians and to dig us deeper into debt. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is desperate to change the channel on the SNC-Lavalin Affair and the departure of another high level official making the total now four: two high ranking cabinet ministers have quit; the Prime Minister’s right-hand man and best friend has quit; and the clerk of the privy council has quit. These resignations were the direct result of the Prime Minister’s office interfering in the criminal prosecution of a Liberal-connected firm. All the goodies that are offered in the budget will not deflect attention from this scandal. All it will do is result in tax hikes but of course, not until after the fall election, if the Liberals are re-elected. This budget should have offered tax relief for middle income Canadians and the business sector, especially for those companies who must compete with US companies who have a more tax competitive field. What this budget should have been about was your future and that of your children and grandchildren. In the last few weeks, we’ve received numerous phone calls, emails and letters from constituents who are extremely worried about the state of the country’s finances and even more so about their own financial situation. The fact that the new carbon tax came into effect on April 1, is giving them added reason for concern. New and rising taxes, increased housing prices, job losses and/or stagnant incomes as well as growing costs for household expenditures on electricity, cable, property taxes, heating and groceries have caused the average Canadian debt balance to increase by 3.3 per cent this year. This load is causing insurmountable stress as more and more Canadians are at real risk of financial ruin. I have heard from many constituents who are having to choose between paying their utility bill and buying groceries; a choice no one should have to make. This budget should have been about making life more affordable for Canadians, including those who dream of one day owning their home. Under the Liberal government 80 per cent of middle-income Canadians are paying higher taxes. The budget should have outlined a plan to ensure the long-term competitiveness of our economy. It should have provided a strategy to effectively deal with our stagnant productivity growth as we are now coming perilously close to recession and our dollar is predicted to slide to .62 cents US. Given the Liberal government’s propensity to spend your tax dollars since elected in 2015, they are ill-prepared to weather any downturn in the economy let alone a recession. I sincerely hope that after the October 2019 election we can chart a new long-term course for Canada– a course that respects taxpayers dollars, rather than abuse them. We need to be on a path to prosperity for the country and all our citizens.

St. Pat’s teachers slimy situation By Lori Larsen

Camrose St. Patrick Catholic School teachers found themselves in a pretty slimy situation on March 22 during a Jump Rope for Heart event. St. Pat’s students were challenged to raise $6,000 for the initiative but with the added incentive, that for every $1,000 raised another teacher would get slimed, the students lit-

erally stepped up to the bucket. After raising a total of $13,800, all the good natured teachers at St. Pat’s sat down, closed their eyes (in some cases covered their faces) in preparation of gooey, sticky, green slime being poured over them, by more-than-willing students. “St. Patrick School has a long history of supporting

this cause (Jump Rope for Heart), because we want to encourage our students to lead active and healthy lifestyles while supporting a worthy cause,” remarked St. Patrick Catholic School assistant principal Michelle Nanias. The school held a skipping event on Feb. 27 and also incorporated a lot of skipping and jumping during school gym classes.

Submitted St. Patrick Catholic School assistant principal Michelle Nanias takes it like a champ when student Sophie Runnalls pours a bucket of gooey, green slime over her head during the Jump Rope for Heart event.

As spring arrives, new leaves begin to emerge and we take notice as our city greens. For many, spring signals renewal and we enjoy the aesthetics, but all of those trees offer much more than a nice view. Trees are part of our urban forest, a unique human-shaped ecosystem that provides invaluable environmental, social, and economic benefits to everyone, including many that may Greg King, Environmental Science, come as a surprise. There are several main Augustana Campus environmental benefits of the urban forest. First, trees cool our cities by shading surfaces and releasing water into the air through transpiration. Wellplaced trees can also directly reduce buildings’ energy use by reducing wind speeds in the winter and providing shade in the summer. Trees and greenspaces slow down stormwater runoff when it rains, allowing water to infiltrate more slowly into the ground, minimizing the required capacity of drainage infrastructure and treatment systems. Trees also store carbon dioxide and other air pollutants, locking them up into their structure over their lifetime. During this same process, the trees produce oxygen for us to breathe. Finally, the urban forest provides essential habitats for wildlife, ranging from pollinators to birds and mammals, preserving and promoting biodiversity in urban settings. Research also reveals under reported aesthetic and psychological benefits to having a “green” city. Urban forests create a more appealing walkable environment, thereby promoting physical activity. Experiments indicate that exposure to nature, including urban forests, is restorative compared to urban, built environments, reducing stress and fostering mental well-being. Urban forests can also provide food for people and encourage social interaction and greater community through increased use of outdoor spaces. As it becomes increasingly difficult to establish or sustain links to the natural world, the urban forest offers opportunities for city residents, both young and old, to connect with nature. Trees also increase property values and have a positive influence on visitors’ perceptions of a city. Although some of these benefits are not easily quantified, it is possible to provide a conservative estimate of the monetary benefits provided by our urban forest. Within Camrose, the Augustana Tree Ring Lab recently completed an inventory of all the planted trees on our campus. We identified close to 600 trees representing 29 species, with a value of more than $600,000 and annual benefits of greater than $3,000. If we scale this up, Camrose’s urban forest likely has a value in the range of millions of dollars. This makes it an exceptional asset that is worth managing, maintaining and growing over time. And any investments will be repaid; a study of several Canadian cities found that urban forests add value of between $1.88 and $12.70 in reduced infrastructure and social service costs for every dollar spent on maintaining them. However, there are risks on the horizon. Camrose has many American elm and green ash trees along our boulevards. Across North America, Dutch elm disease and the invasive emerald ash borer have drastically affected these species. Some neighbourhoods in Eastern Canada have lost 75 to 90 per cent of their tree canopy. We need to prepare for these potential threats to a large proportion of our valuable street trees and start thinking about the functional diversity of our urban forest. How can we contribute to the stewardship of our urban forest? First, do not transport firewood, as you may be inadvertently moving pests and disease. Second, contribute to the protection of mature trees, as benefits increase exponentially with age. Third, we need to plant more trees, ensuring we select the right tree for the right place, taking into account what we want our urban forest to look like in 30 years. This spring take a second look at that tree in your yard and think about all of the other benefits it provides beyond simply looking great.

Bernesky-Lyster family to benefit from event By Murray Green

The community of Round Hill is rallying around the Bernesky-Lyster family. The Elisha and Allan Bernesky-Lyster family is managing some challenges due to family health issues. A fundraising supper and silent auction will be held at the Round Hill Community Centre on Saturday, April 13, beginning at 6:30 p.m. This is a free event and all funds raised will go towards the family. “Kristian, their oldest, age 14, was diagnosed with severe autism at an early age along with an obsessive compulsive disorder and he was later diagnosed as being an insulin dependent diabetic about three years ago. He started school in Round Hill where he was provided with aides to help with his education. Kristian continued there until Grade 4 at which time Elisha realized that he needed more, so she began searching for a specialized program for him,” explained Denise Campbell, who is helping with the fundraiser. “It took two years to get him into the specialized program at Jack Stuart School in Camrose for which they are ever grateful. He now is enrolled in

a specialized class at École Charlie Killam School and is integrated into the regular program for some subjects. He is learning life skills, sensory processing and has an aid with him at all times. His affliction leaves him nonverbal, and as such communication and comprehension are a constant struggle for him,” added Denise. Tyler, now 11, has been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder and a learning disability. He has access to speech, OT and the school counsellor, but he still needs daily help and reminders, when at home, to spend extra time doing homework to keep up with his classmates and peers. Alexis is eight and is enjoying and completing her school at Sparling. Allan, is a Type 2 insulin dependent diabetic with chronic kidney disease. “It’s been almost two years since Allan has been able to work. His wife Elisha tries to make ends meet by selling delicious goodies at various markets as well as managing the family’s logistic challenges that include supporting their three children at two different schools and helping Allan with his daily struggles,” said Denise.

Average Percentage Change map for property assessment By Lori Larsen

The City of Camrose has created the Average Percentage Change Map, another tool available to residents to assist them when reviewing and understanding their property assessments, which are due to come out the middle of May. Property owners are encouraged to go over their assessment, bearing in mind that assessments are done on the most likely sale price of the property on July 1, 2018, and that many variables are considered when determining the value of a property. City of Camrose Financial Services city assessor Travis Lantz explained that the Percentage Change Map, available on the City of Camrose website, provides details on the changes in average residential assessment value by neighbourhood, for the entire City of Camrose from July 2018 in comparison to July 2017. The City will be presenting the potential tax increase and options surrounding it to City

of Camrose Council at the April 15 City Council Committee of Whole meeting (2 p.m unless otherwise changed). “When we present to council, we will indicate that the residential assessment values are down about 0.85 of a per cent. This map is another way for us to

remind people that is the overall percentage.” Lantz explained that other factors determine the value of properties such as location, age, type and size of building(s) and lot size. One of the results from the City assessment indicated that some of the older areas located around the Downtown region had some very significant drops in values. A r e a s east of the Downtown area exper i e n c e d decreases as high as -10.89 per cent and some areas north-east of Downtown area (railway tracks) ex per ienced decreases in values of -8.47, -5.72 and -6.43 per cent. “It was quite different from the rest of the City which was more

consistent, either down a little bit or up a little bit, and some very close to no change.” However, Lantz did note that the dollar value decrease is relative to the actual value of the home itself, which in these areas tend to be lower valued homes. Lantz said that the areas that showed increased values were, for the most part, not large increases, with the exception of Valleyview West which noted an increase of 3.6 per cent. “There is a lot of new construction there – that drives prices up a bit, it is not so much that the prices are increasing.” Lantz said that apartment property values are down about six per cent, which he noted is likely the result of rents not being what they used to be and higher vacancy rates. “Condo values are also down by about 3.3 per cent,” said Lantz, adding that these numbers affect the overall decrease Camrose experienced in residential property values of 0.85 per cent. The Percentage Change Map will provide Camrose property owners with a ref-

erence point, once council has determined this year’s specific public tax increase (projected date May 6), to help explain their individual property taxes increase or decrease, which will vary from that set by council. “When calculating your tax increase, a lot of it has to do with your assessment change relative to the whole city assessment change,” said Lantz. “We encourage property owners to look closely at their assessments, because at the end of the day, we want to tax people fairly.” All property owners have the right to appeal the assessed value of their property for 60 days from the date the notices are sent. If you have any concerns or questions regarding the assessed value of your property (if sold on July 1, 2018), contact the Assessment Department by telephone at 780-672-4426. The City is also working at updating information on specific property values for residents to view, available on the Property Information Interactive Map (www. assessments.aspx), by the time tax notices are sent out in mid-May.

BRAVO for the Lougheed By Lori Larsen

Exposing youth to arts and culture, while building an awareness and understanding of different forms of expression, is crucial to their learning and growth. The Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre has taken a positive role in ensuring all children/youth in our community(s) are given that opportunity. With the introduction of the BRAVO, Youth Access Program in 2018, Lougheed Centre aims at providing at least one school programming opportunity for every student, Grades 1 through 6, at no cost to the family or school. “We are super excited about BRAVO,” said Lougheed Centre general manager Nick Beach. “We believe it is our role to reach all members of the community(s) in different ways, with the performing arts.” Beach explained that the goal to reach out to the youth began with the Fountain Tire family series, which as been operating for the last two years. The family series is a free program that is accomplished through support and sponsorship of a community business that believes it is vital for children and youth to be exposed to live theatre. “We began the family series program in the middle of the recession when everyone was hit hard. When we went back through our data and our surveys, we realized the young families were the ones being hit the hardest, so we wanted to make sure that the families still had access to the arts.” Lougheed Centre patron services manager, Tanya Pattullo added, “Even a small amount of money was just too much money to put out in order to come out to a show.”

St. Pat’s brings on the books By Lori Larsen

Students at St. Patrick Catholic School are zipping into April excited about this year’s Tournament of Books initiative. Students and teachers alike are once again taking the joy of reading to heart by reading and ultimately voting for their favourite “teachers’ choice” books during the month of April. The tournament turned a different page this year, with all 16 books being chosen by the teachers. On April 1 the students and staff of St. Pat’s proved they are no “fools” cheering loudly as Grade 3 students ran this year’s book choices into the gym. The Tournament of Books initiative is a fun way for St. Pat’s students to reap the benefits of reading while enjoying guest readers from the community, invited to the classrooms to share their own passion for reading. At the end of the tournament, once all the votes are tallied, the winner will be announced. Last year’s book winner was The Legend of Rock, Paper, Scissors written by Drew Daywalt. Bring on the books St. Pat’s and read like champs.

ent school each time. “Our community reach is Battle River community–Battle River School Division, Elk Island Catholic Schools and the Camrose and Area Home School Association.” Pattullo remarked, “In this digital era when children are so plugged in, it is amazing how in awe they are when they come to live performances. Some have never been exposed and it opens up a whole new world. It could be the littlest nugget that inspires them, such as a singer or drummer or something they see on stage.” She continued, “We have such huge supporters of the arts in Camrose. When they see that $5 sends a student or $500 sends an entire school, it is an easy decision.” On a final note, Beach said that they understand the great deal of pressure schools, administrators and teachers are under and, if doing this for them can make it a bit easier, then it is all worthwhile. “We try to make it easy by supplying the school with the date of the performance, how many students they can bring and asking them if they would like to come. “The response has been overwhelmingly, ‘yes’,” he laughed. “We are really excited about doing this for our community–our youth.” Anyone wishing to donate can do so at three giving levels: sponsoring a single student, a classroom or an entire school. The Lougheed Centre displays the names of donors (other than those who wish to remain anonymous) in the lobby and tax receipts are given for any donations over $20. For more information on the BRAVO program, drop by the box office located at the Lougheed Centre, email or telephone 780-608-2922.

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Instructor Garry Williams assists About Time Productions student Anika Carrier on hitting the right notes as she learns to play the piano and sing a song she wrote during the Spring Break Camp held at the Camrose United Church from March 25 to 29. By Murray Green

While most students received a week off from school during the spring break, About Time Productions (ATP) held a theatre camp for children from March 25 to 29 at the Camrose United Church. Halifax instructor Garry Williams and ATP alumni Ethan Snowden led the Spring Break Theatre Camp where students designed, wrote and performed learned skills. “The idea is to give the participants the tools to create chorography, songs, dialog and narrative for an original musical theatre. The lyrics, melodies and stories are coming directly from the students,” explained Garry. Students learned new skills from Monday to Friday and ended the week with a final performance on Friday evening. “They talked about their experi-

ences at school, home and their hopes and fears. We then transform that into art. I strongly believe that we all have stories to tell. We just lack the tools to tell them,” shared Garry. “The first two days, you could see people’s fear of sharing too much, or being judged for what they were writing. It is astonishing and heartwarming to see the clarity of thought and the depth of feeling and experience, and the poetic instinct in all of their writing.” Students learned to be more creative, communicate better, gained more confidence, worked as a team and improved self esteem. “Ethan and I each focused on a 10-year age range. We simply allowed everyone to understand what we were doing. Then they came to us with what they wanted to do. Some wrote songs, others danced and told a story without words,” Garry said.

Some of the material will be taken back with Garry to Halifax and his regular students can share the stories and songs. “I want it to be a shared collaboration between Halifax and Camrose to create a full-scale production for About Time Productions. Some people are afraid to begin and we want them to get excited about starting projects. It is special to see so much talent that Cathie (Johnson) has brought together.” More than 30 students attended the spring camp. “It is exciting for us because he is writing a musical for us to perform, using stories and music that are written by our students. It is so fascinating,” said Cathie. “Every time I work with him (Garry), I become a better director. He is so knowledgable and good with the students.”

Hope returns to roots series, shares his fourth album By Murray Green

The Rose City Roots Music Society is bringing back hope to the local music scene. Rich Hope that is, on Saturday, April 13, beginning at 8 p.m. “It’s always great to play at the Bailey Theatre and this time, I’ll be featuring music from the latest album,” said Rich. Hope’s explosive country rock ’n’ soul sound is into two decades. In fact, Hope is set to release his fourth album I’m All Yours, his first full-length release since 2009s Gonna Whip it on Ya. The new album was recorded at Vancouver’s Little Red Sounds studio with producer Felix Fung on weekends, rainy nights

and a lot of stolen time in between. “We will feature those songs and some other favourites for the Camrose fans. Our third album was a raw two-piece guitar and drums piece blues record. We explored what we could do with two instruments. This one meshes the old country band with the new rock. We started the night playing country and transformed into rock as the night went on. Now, we have more of a country rock sound. I wanted a Rich Hope record to be whatever it turned out to be. It’s my sound, not certain genres. It is an amalgamation of all of those things. The evaluation was playing with different sounds. I was

looking for a way to make new sounds, more instruments to make it more exciting,” he added. The new album is filled with the gritty, high energy R&B-flavoured garage rock that has made Hope an institution. “I really love playing ‘Five Cent a Dance’ and it is fun to play. It went from a kinda boneheaded song into a song about the Railway Club in Vancouver. The original owner is long gone,

but it was a great place where you could come up to play and develop as artists. The musicians around town hung out there and it was a wonderful place to be. I wanted to pay homage to it and it came out fairly well,” he explained. Hope and his longtime band bassist Erik Nielsen, keyboardist Matt Kelly and drummer Adrian Mack provide a fresh sound to rock. “We are bringing everything on this tour. They are all coming, even the horn section as well,” Hope offered. “We want the concert to be as true to the album as we could.” Hope was born and raised in Edmonton where his first band was the Taxi-

crabs. Relocating to Vancouver, he released his first fulllength album Good To Go in 1998. Soon afterward, he joined the band John Ford, recording two albums and touring extensively with them. Eventually, he left the group, taking drummer Mack with him to perform as a two-piece garage act. He is excited to return to Camrose. “I really like playing on the prairies because the patrons are so fun to play for. It has a looseness and fun vibe to it. I’m from Edmonton, so I know what that is like. People in Calgary, Edmonton and Camrose just seem to want to have more fun and enjoy the music.”

The Indigenous movie Neither Wolf Nor Dog has been acclaimed as the best non-Hollywood movie filmed in North America. Scottish director, Steven Lewis Simpson, turned a long dream into a reality. It was audiencefinanced and shot in only 18 shoot days between the Dakotas by a tiny crew with a 95-year-old star. The self-distributed release unconventionally debuted in small towns and has since outperformed Hollywood blockbusters in numerous multiplexes. The movie will play at Bailey Theatre on April 12 at 7 p.m. Based on the bestselling novel by Kent Nerburn, Neither Wolf Nor Dog takes audiences on a deeply moving road trip through contemporary and historical Lakota life and culture. Its humour is wry and pulls no punches, introducing deep characters and poignant vignettes that challenge the viewer to see the world a bit differently. Star, Dave Bald Eagle died at the age of 97 before the film was released. For a time his obituary was the mostread feature in the world on the BBC. Bald Eagle was left for dead during D-Day. Costar, Christopher Sweeney was awarded the Silver Star from the Gulf War. Yet it was co-star, Richard Ray Whitman who was never in the service that spent the most days under fire during the 71-day occupation of Wounded Knee in 1973, where the government fired hundreds of thousands of bullets at American Indian Movement activists. Bald Eagle had relatives at the infamous Wounded Knee Massacre of 1890, where the film’s climax was filmed, which is sacred ground for its stars.

Spring rodeo cancelled this year By Murray Green

The Camrose Regional Exhibition announced they will not be running the Camrose Spring Pro Rodeo in April, as the program will be put on hiatus to design and develop a new agriculture experience for 2020. “The board reviewed the impact of hosting the rodeo on the budget and decided this event

needed to be fully revamped,” said Mark Schneider, president of the board, in a prepared statement. The new executive director at the CRE will also have more time to review the event. “I look forward to working with the passionate members of the CRE board and our talented agriculture events manager, Mari-

lyn Lee, to develop a unique experience for all,” said Dianne Kohler, executive director. “We have started the process of examining all our CRE signature events to ensure we are delivering experiences that excite everyone in Camrose and the surrounding area, while remaining fiscally responsible to our membership.”

“We’re looking to make this a great year for golf in Camrose!”

Electric bikes gaining some popularity By Murray Green

Electric bikes (eBikes) have traveled a long distance from their conception in the 1890s. As battery and motor technology has steadily improved since the 1890s, so too have sales, and popularity of these two wheel contraptions. Today eBikes are steadily growing, and gaining popularity within main stream culture. Just as electric vehicles are becoming a common sight, so too are electric bikes on our roads. “Anyone who enjoys biking, but has health or joint issues, now has a practical option to regain their freedom,” said Steve Volk, who has built a few bikes. Many countries in Asia and Europe have been utilizing eBike technology for decades. In recent years though, North Americans have started to embrace this eco-friendly form of travel. “Pedal as hard or easy as you like, and the eBike motor will assist you when you need a little help. Many people refer to this as having Superman legs. This is extremely helpful when traveling up hills, into head winds, or long distances. These former obstacles are no longer a problem with an electric motor to assist you. Another option is to simply turn the motor off and use as a regular bicycle for a work out. Many people use the motor when going to work and pedal home for exercise,” explained Steve. There are three main types of motors for eBikes. Front wheel, rear wheel and mid drive designs. Front and rear wheel drives have the motor located in the centre of the bike’s wheel. Mid drives have the motor located between the bike’s pedals. Some mechanically inclined individuals have created two wheel drives for added traction in sand or snow. Mid drives are superior hill climbers, but need to be peddled for movement. Whereas front and rear wheel powered bikes use a throttle similar to a scooter for movement. Pedal assist system or PAS is used when a per-

that will appeal to almost every individual. These range from lower powered road cruisers to high powered mountain bikes. Costs will depend on which end of the spectrum the bikes are on. Same as regular bikes, an eBike can be customized with added pieces to create a unique look. Since eBikes have pedals they are still classified as a bicycle. They are subject to the same laws as non powered bikes. No license or insurance is required to operate one on public roads. EBikes are doing an excellent job of rejuvenating peoples’ love of adventure and distance travel. Thankfully, there’s a growing number of people showing interest in this alternative form of travel. EBikes look as though they’re here to BIKE CRUISE stay and are growMurray Green, Camrose Booster ing in popularity Holly Volk gets ready to take a ride on one of her dad’s eBikes around Mirror Lake. It is a safe and for urban and trail less expensive way to get around the city. riders. son turns the pedals and the bikes controller senses more assistance is needed. The PAS will engage the motor for easier start ups and help when on hills or headwinds. Mid drives use the PAS system as their main form of throttle, with different power levels available. As well as a throttle, many front and rear wheel drives utilize PAS systems for greater versatility. “If a person has the tools and some basic bicycle knowledge, building a custom bike is yet another option. Ordering the parts on line and assembling at home can be both rewarding and very frustrating. Many people do it this way to save some money and build to suit their specif-

ic requirements,” added Steve. Batteries have undergone the most significant changes in eBike technology. An eBike battery is the power supply for the bike. The more volts a battery has, the more power it will produce. Early batteries were lead acid which were very heavy and somewhat dangerous in a crash. New technology has introduced Lithium Ion batteries, which are much lighter and more durable than their predecessors. Amp hours are the gas tank for an eBike. The more amp hours a battery has, the larger the tank is and the further a person can travel. Today there are many different styles of eBikes

WOW building relationships By Lori Larsen

In the highly competitive business world, supporting one another and building strong relationships can have a great impact on success. In 2016, two Camrosian women, Ashley Meadahl and Louise Jones, felt there was a need for entrepreneurs (specifically women) of Camrose to come together on a regular basis and build relationships, support each other, collaborate on ideas and ultimately learn from one another. The Camrose WOW Networking group are a collective of Camrose women in business and leadership who meet the second Tuesday of every month (except January, August and December) for lunch at a variety of locations throughout Camrose. “WOW targets women who are in business and leadership roles or interested in business,” said WOW coordinator and Rural Alberta Business Centre small business advisor Louise Jones. “During the luncheons, there are not a lot of promotions or selling of the participants’ products/services, it is more about building relationships, collaboration, learning and supporting each other.” The casual luncheons feature local speakers sharing vital information on specific topics that is beneficial to attendees. “There are very strong entrepreneurial women in this community and this is an opportunity to learn from one another.” While there are a fairly regular turnout of some participants, Jones remarked that the number of attendees varies because it is wide open to any woman (no membership) in business or in leadership roles that want to share and support others. “We are always seeing new people – there is a nice flow of new people and regular, but we do cap it at 30 and most meetings are sold out.” In celebration of the relationships gained throughout the year, WOW will be holding their annual Spring WOW Gala on Friday, April 12 at the Camrose Resort Casino, registration at 5:30 and dinner at 6:15 p.m. The Gala’s theme this year is Staying Positive in the Face of Challenges and the evening will feature a champagne reception, swag bar, photo booth, dinner and a cash beverage bar. If you are interested in attending a meeting or finding out more about WOW or are interested in attending the upcoming Gala, visit the WOW Networking group Facebook page or contact Louise at louise@ or by telephone at 780-608-7875.

Mary and John were married in 1954 and lived on the land John purchased in 1951 where they raised eight children. Their farming consisted of chicken, pigs, cattle, grain and very large vegetable gardens. Mary and John retired from farming in 1975 and moved to Camrose. They were custodians of Sifton School. Mary got her high school diploma, librarian certificate and driver’s license. She was very active with cooking, including at the college and KFC. She worked at Sunny Boy Flour Mill and cleaned at the Hacienda. Mary was very involved with the Ladies’ Auxiliary at the Royal Canadian Legion for forty-plus years in which she also served as president for a time. Mary was involved with the CWL at St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church. She loved doing ceramics and giving them as gifts to her children. She LOVED family gatherings, weddings and planning large gatherings herself that she held at the Holden farm. She loved to socialize, no matter what the event was. She will be forever in the hearts of her children and grandchildren Brian (Jocelyn), Theresa (Brian) Swelin, Monica (Wayne) Chromik, Vivian (Blaine) Fraser, Barbara (Ed) McLaughlin, Roger, Wes (Karen) and Jacquie (Peter) Bennett; nineteen grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and sisters Margaret Mella and Ann Melnychuk.

Michael Niehaus was born to John and Marie Niehaus at Strome, Alberta, on July 27, 1931 and passed away peacefully at Bethany Meadows - Oak Cottage on March 14, 2019 at the age of 87 years. He was blessed to grow up with five sisters and four brothers. Michael married Donna (Tarnowski) on July 20, 1954, and together they were blessed with eight children Doug (Janet) Niehaus, Monica (David) Blaeser, Veronica (Ron) Reist, Perry (Rita) Niehaus, Val (Steve) Bjornson, Michele (Dwayne) Panas, Danny (Noel) Niehaus and Dennis (Chris) Niehaus. They were also blessed with 30 grandchildren and 48 great-grandchildren. Michael will be remembered for the love he had for his wife Donna, his family, friends and his faith. Michael and Donna raised their family while farming for 20 years in Strome, AB, before moving to Camrose, AB, in 1974. He had many talents; he had a passion for music, sports, cards and volunteering in the community. Michael was a lifetime member of the Knights of Columbus. His passion for music started when playing his saxophone as a child and, the age of 15, he started playing in the band called Rhythm Rascals. He played with them until 1980. During this time, he also played in a number of other bands. Every winter, Michael looked forward to curling with his friends. During his early retirement, he loved to spend all of his extra time with his family. Michael was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend. He will be greatly missed by everyone’s lives whom he touched. Michael faced his last few months with courage and hope. We remember his beautiful smile and his twinkle in his eyes, right up until the time our Lord and Saviour called him safely home. We wish to thank everyone for the comfort, support and acts of kindness shown to our family during this time. A funeral mass will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 13, 2019 from St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church (5010- 48a Avenue, Camrose).

Validating children’s grief By Lori Larsen

Helping and supporting fellow community members in their times of need, is what the many volunteers for the Hospice Society of Camrose and District have been doing since its inception in 2011. Under the guidance of program coordinator and grief and bereavement coordinator Bill Harder the Hospice Society offers a variety of programs and services to Camrose and area residents and links to many more offered by other agencies and organizations. One of the programs offered to the community at large is the Childrens’ Grief Support Group– Art for the Heart, which is a collaborative project between Family Violence Action Society (FVAS) and Hospice Society of Camrose. “FVAS received a grant to address mental health in children and youth,” noted Harder. The funding is used to operate the free program, with Harder as the facilitator and registered art therapist Nikki Featherstone directing the art portion, taking place at the Mirror Lake Centre, lower level (5415-49 Ave). The first session hosted 11 children, ages six to 11, experiencing various kinds of loss. A second session, was scaled down to eight children to better facilitate each participants’ needs and a third session is in the works. The children attending the five-week program for ages seven to 12, begin each meeting gathered in a circle and are told a story, then given a colour and asked to share what that colour represents to them. Harder noted that all the children are given permission at all times to pass, if they do not feel like sharing. “There were quite a few children in the first session that barely said anything in the five weeks they were there. They just needed to be accepted and let their art work tell the story for them.” After the initial coming together, the group then moves into the boardroom where they gather around a table to work on the art project. “In the first group we did story box art. The children decorated a wooden box, making it represent

their story of loss. Then they were invited to bring their memorabilia to put into it and keep the box so they can continue to put items into it.”

heaven. “This is not helpful in the grieving process. There is no child that thinks it is better for their loved one (parent) to be in heaven than with them. That language

The participants of the Childrens’ Grief Support Group created memory boxes to help them through their loss.

During the session the group spends time in the classroom working on their art, chit chatting and there is a little playfulness, explained Harder. “Then at the end of the session we go around and everyone is given an opportunity to say something about their art for that day, or if they so choose, they can pass.” When the idea first came about to implement a program dealing with children and youth grief, Harder said they had no idea how needed it would be throughout the community. “What it reveals to us is children grieve, but also that parents are realizing children grieve and they are uncertain what to do with this. “We live in a Culture that puts death and grief in the closet (100 years ago) and we haven’t taken it out. We have this idea that children should be protected from grief or loss at all costs and as a consequence we don’t validate or honour that actual experience of loss they are having.” Harder went on to explain that typically adults do not like to use the terms die, death or dead around children and instead use metaphors such as, telling a child that a loved one who has died has gone to a better place such as

does not resonate with children and youth at all. Harder continued. “We need to teach adults to be open to the grief of children.” He remarked that 98 per cent of what needs to be given to children who are grieving is quiet acceptance that opens up a space for children to express what they are experiencing. “One moment they may be sad and crying and the next moment happy and playing but it is important to grant children permission to be children.” He added that may mean the adult(s) work may simply be to be with the grieving child and not shut their grief down. “The children will teach us on how to bring grief out of that closet.” Harder explained that most often parents (adults) who bring their children to the support group are hoping they (the children) can be fixed. “I get that, as a parent we don’t want our children to hurt. “We need, as a culture, to recognize that sorrow isn’t a disease, illness or something wrong with us it is absolutely quintessential to our humanity to experience sorrow as much as joy or grief as much as any of the other full spectrum of human emotions we experience. When we try to fix grief we are

amputating a piece of our humanity. Harder said that as facilitators they are very up front with the parents (adults) when they bring children to the sessions. “We are not here to make them (children/youth) feel better we are here to create a safe place to let them feel what they feel and support them to know this is good and healthy and hard and this is what it means to be humans, to be real. “It is a bit discerning for parents because they are hoping we will take away the pain but in fact,” Harder said, “The group is more likely going to gently lead the child deeper into their pain and they will discover strength and lean into that loss.” Harder went on to explain that in a society, where death has been somewhat sterilized and it is discouraged to bring children to funerals, when a child finally confronts death, perhaps as a young adult, they may not be equipped with the skills to navigate that to make it transformational rather than destructive. “It reveals a human depth when we release ourselves into the experience of loss and for children they begin to understand their own power that they can survive hard things. They are supported by the adult world the adult world is holding them so they can investigate the deep hurt they are feeling.” Recognizing an important need to address how parents and adults deal with children experiencing grief, another workshop was designed on how to support children in grief that includes important information such as the background on the child’s grief, how it is unique and proven approaches on helping children be present to their own loss.

New library director engaging community By Lori Larsen

With an obvious sense of excitement for her new gig, Camrose Public Library’s (CPL) new director, Robyn Gray greets patrons with a wide warm smile and a welcome to the library, where there is so much more than books. Far removed from the typical stereotype of the curt librarian, glasses edged down to the tip of their nose, finger pressed to their lips shushing guests, Robyn’s youth and exuberance sets the stage for the much different experience one receives at the Camrose library. Hailing from Calgary where she was born and raised, Robyn moved to Camrose in 2017. “I did my undergraduate degree in Victoria in English and my masters in Library and Information Studies at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia.” Her first position out of post secondary school was at Elk Point, with the Northern Lights Library System, as a public services consultant. “Then I came to Camrose in November 2017, to work for the Battle River School Division as the instructional media commons coordinator.” She expressed how much she enjoys living in Camrose and that landing this position with Camrose Public Library is a dream come true. “I love public libraries so much and in this position, I really get to do a variety of different things. I am hoping I will make a difference in the community,” she smiled. Known for being one of the hubs of Camrose where everyone is welcome and there are a variety of programs and services to suit any age, the library holds a special place in Robyn’s memory of first moving to Camrose. “When I first moved to Camrose, the library was a huge part of my life. It is where I made some of my first friends and took part in programs so I could get out of the house and meet more people.” Something Robyn hopes to expand upon in her position as the director. “I would love to see us continue to reach out to every area of the community that we can, so everyone feels welcome here. We will continue to create a comfort zone for all, whether that be LGBTQ, mothers with children to be able to get out of the house and have a social setting, children treating it like their second home and seniors using more programs or offering them more volunteering opportunities.” Robyn said she will foster the sense the library has as a place where people

can come and have conversations, take part in relevant and innovative programs, use technology, or sit and enjoy reading a book in an inclusive atmosphere. “We also want to focus on where we have been and where we are going,” she remarked. “As much as Camrose might be a smaller city, I like to think we still provide outstanding library service.” With this year being the Camrose Public Library’s centennial, Robyn, along with library staff and volunteers, are planning some special events to celebrate the milestone. “The centennial, which is officially in November, is a fantastic opportunity for us. We are hoping to try to do something every month,

and can do for the community. “We support those things that are important to the community.” Outside of her busy duties with the library, Robyn volunteers with the Greater Edmonton Library Association (GELA) prisoner project. “They do a variety of projects, including book and crafting clubs and storytime projects where female inmates record stories, then the recordings are sent to their children (outside the Robyn Gray prison system). It’s a very good organization and I am hoping but the week in November we can do a book drive here itself, we are planning to at some point.” have different events, even It might come as a hapthroughout the city.” py surprise to know that She mentioned that in her leisure time, Robyn they will be focussing on plays the bagpipes. “I have what all the library does for about 18 years now. My

parents kind of forced me into it because they both play,” she said, grinning. She is also an avid knitter and relishes the time she spends at the Library knitting event. “It’s a great way to get out and meet people.” Robyn invites anyone to come in and meet her and share in her love for the “all things library”. “The library has come a long way and I want to continue in that vein–doing lots of networking opportunities.” As she grows into the position, she hopes to implement more ways for the library to have its ‘finger’ on the pulse of the community. “I’ve already reached out to a few organizations within the city, asking if there are any ways the library can assist them.” For more information on the services and programs offered at the library, visit the website at

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.

Tish Olsen is ready to continue with renovations of living quarters in the back of her downtown store. City council agreed to allow residential on the ground floor on Main Street, which was not recommended by administration. The 6-3 vote in favour of using part of the store as living quarters was made at the regular council meeting on March 18. Tish wants one more adjustment from council before calling her store a home as well. “Now that we are allowed a residence, we would like some outdoor space to go with the living quarters. It would only take one-third of the rear parking lot. We are allowed a six-foot fence in the rear of the property. However, with the bus stop right outside the back door and traffic, mom would like an eight-foot fence to offer some privacy around the outdoor living area. The City will be asking for public feedback on this. There are other eight-foot fences around downtown. It would also help to keep the smell of the bus out more,” said Tish’s daughter Olivia, who is helping her with the changes. “I want to be able to have some privacy and not have bus people looking in. I want a barbecue, a table and some chairs,” added Tish.
