Lovely worked hard for victory By Murray Green

It was a landslide victory for Jackie Lovely and the United Conservative Party(UCP) team in the Camrose Riding on April 16, election day. Not only did the UCP win with a majority government, Lovely garnered 66.2 per cent of the vote with 14,608 votes. NDP’s Morgan Bamford was next with 17.5 per cent of the vote with 3,869 votes. Unofficially, 22,081 people of the 30,456 eligible voters cast a ballot this election for 72.5 per cent. “It was hard work. We door-knocked for 11 months. I was told by one of my volunteers that it was nine months, but we figured it out to be 11. We door-knocked on 12,000 doors and covered every square inch of this constituency,” said an excited Lovely. She wasn’t surprised at the election outcome. “People told us at the door the last couple of months they were supporting UCP. We doorknocked until yesterday, a full evening (April 15) and they told us they already voted and voted UCP. About 95 per cent of the people said they voted for us, so we had a good feeling it would be in favour of us,” she added. “People said they were unhappy with the carbon tax, so that will be bill number one.

too expensive for seniors who are living on a fixed income, for families who have young children, the business people, it has just made life too expensive. We need to repeal the carbon tax and get Albertans back to work. We need to make some big changes to help businesses move back to Alberta,” suggested Lovely. A majority government will allow the UCP to make changes. “It will allow us to move forward and make the changes Albertans want. We knew the rural area was going to be fairly solid for us and also that Edmonton would support NDP. We were fairly confident we were going to

win this seat because we worked until the very end and did not take anything for granted. People wanted to see us at the door. That was my whole approach this time, a kitchen table discussion where I sat down with people and listened to their concerns, and found out a little about them. I wanted to meet everyone who lives in our constituency. Most of them I did.” She now has the task of taking all of those concerns and putting them into action. “It was a cluster of the same concerns. Jobs, the economy and getting people working again, getting a pipeline built and getting rid of the carbon tax.”

City set to repeal Intermunicipal Development Plan By Lori Larsen

Following a special meeting called by City of Camrose Council on Feb. 11, a motion was moved and seconded requesting the Camrose Intermunicipal Committee (CIC) call a meeting to discuss the City’s intent to have the City of Camrose and Camrose County Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP) repealed. The IDP is an agreement between the City of Camrose and Camrose County which deals particularly with land use issues, the compatibility for new development, where development should be located, type of services it receives and is required as well as the process for disputes and other topics. During the scheduled meeting on March 25, the CIC discussed position papers provided by both the City of Camrose and Camrose County, concluding that while both parties agree on a large number of changes and updates to the IDP, there were other areas they were not in agreement on, including the primary purpose of the IDP and the lands to be included in the IDP area. “Our major issue with the IDP is the difference of opinion (between the City and the County) on what defines agricultural use,” explained City of Camrose Development and Planning Services director Aaron Leckie. On March 26 during a Camrose County regular council meeting, with direction from the CIC, Camrose County approved a motion for Camrose County council to work with the City of Camrose to retain a mediator from the Municipal Affairs roster to facilitate discussions on the IDP with the City of Camrose. Leckie explained that the existing IDP is in place, because the government of Alberta required it when the City did the most recent annexation of county lands in 2009, with a goal of the city and county working together to provide services to new development as efficiently as possible without limiting the ability of the City of Camrose to eventually grow into that area when required. City of Camrose manager, Malcolm Boyd further explained, “The need for the IDP is to allow for future seamless integration when the City eventually grows beyond its current boundary. The growth that we plan and execute in the City should flow naturally into what the County allows to develop through the IDP. That ensures that we don’t end up with incompatible development.” “The other factor considered is servicing,” added Leckie. “We want to make sure when a development is constructed within an adjacent municipality, that it is not making it difficult for the City to provide water sanitary/storm and transportation services to that development in the future.” New requirements from the provincial government now mandate cooperation between all municipal jurisdictions that share

a border (unless within the Calgary or Edmonton metropolitan regions), to create and maintain Intermunicipal Development Plans (IDPs). Leckie said the existing IDP agreement between the City and the County had been working quite well up until about 2018. “In 2018 there were two major development proposals within Camrose County (fertilizer and storage facility and a cannabis production plant). “One was referred to City of Camrose and one was not. The City feels these proposals have a pretty big impact on our ability to grow into that area and meet that requirement of seamless integration without additional development requirements placed on those developments.” The city appealed both of the developments to the Camrose County Subdivision Appeal Board, a quasi-judicial board that hears on matters that fall within the County jurisdiction, and lost both appeals.

City’s concerns

In reference to the existing IDP, the City’s interpretation of agricultural use means nonintensive cultivation of crops and raising of animals, the traditional definition of what people would consider a farm. Leckie stated that the definition of agricultural land use, referred to by the City, is moreor-less a summary of definitions reviewed by City administration and City lawyers and closely what is defined in the City of Camrose Land Use Bylaw. “It is not defined by the Province because municipalities have broad authority over land use. There is very little guidance from the province as to what municipalities can actually do in terms of approved land use. They (provincial government) don’t want the top down approach, they want it to grow organically within those municipalities.” Boyd said when considering the need for seamless integration, a field full of crops or cattle doesn’t City of Camrose City Hall

“So the City’s position from that point on, shifted with regards to the IDP,” said Leckie. “If, in the City’s opinion, that agreement is not providing any sort of development requirements that make sure seamless integration is dealt with or it also poses future issues for servicing or compatibility with adjacent land users in the county for that matter, them what purpose is that agreement serving? ” In February of this year, the City began the process of repealing the existing IDP agreement. Because the Provincial government mandates that by April 1, 2020, the City and County have an IDP in place, it will either require negotiating a brand new IDP or amend the existing IDP. Leckie indicated that because the existing IDP is no longer serving the purpose originally intended, they are requesting to work with the County on creating a new IDP. For that reason, and at this point, the City and the County are now in the process of sending out a request for a proposal to Alberta Municipal Affairs roster of approved mediators, to determine if a mediator is able to work with the City and the County to address and work out issues regarding the IDP.

require a lot of servicing or permanent structures, generally speaking. “So when the City looks down the road at when we are going to require areas for growth, proposed agricultural development (as per the City’s definition) doesn’t apply a constraint on the growth of the City. But if the County begins to build factories, that creates a future development issue.” Using the specific example of the cannabis production plant Boyd continued, “The County’s definition of agricultural use permits the development of the cannabis plant because it grows plants and utilizes the products from those plants and the City can’t argue that it is growing a plant. “However, it is more than traditional agriculture because it has permanent facilities associated with it, servicing requirements, different storm water management, more employees which means more people travelling to and from that has traffic management implications, 24 hour lighting and security (mandated by Federal government) and six-foot chain link fencing.” Leckie added that the operation of the production facility will require the use of a drying room to extract the THC and CBD oil, which is a chemical process that will require venting.

Boyd pointed out the concern that the City did not receive notification from the County about the development of the cannabis plant. “Because this was a permitted use (by the County’s interpretation of agricultural use and intensive agricultural use), the County determined that they did not have to notify the City or the residents in the County that lived next door to the proposed plant.” The City discovered the development proposal after the County made application through the Building Safety Codes, a service the City provides to the County. “With the County’s focus on developing within close proximity to the City, but with limited services, it has an impact on our ability to provide that seamless integration in the future when the city goes to annex those lands and the ability to service those areas,” continued Boyd. Leckie explained that County residents, for the most part, are aware that living in an area where farming practices occur, does mean accepting there will be nuisances such as dust, harvest and after hours operations. “County residents should be aware, because the cannabis facility was approved, there is the possibility that the same type of land use could occur on any land within the county deemed to be agricultural use by the County.” He suggested that it is important for residents, whether in the City or County to understand the development of land around them and what is being interpreted as agricultural land use. “There are three guideline options that were developed (for municipalities to interpret cannabis) and they include; try to fit it in your existing definition of agriculture, create a new definition specifically for cannabis production facilities that would be separate from agriculture, or recognize it isn’t agriculture it is something different industrial/commercial. “The City of Camrose has categorized (cannabis) as an industrial use. Most municipalities, even rural, have defined it (cannabis) as industrial. Some have still defined it as agriculture but as a separate use that is discretionary, which requires notification to adjacent owners and certain standards that have to be applied, for the development officer to make a decision as to whether or not it is an appropriate use there.” Boyd commented, “There are only two municipalities within Alberta that have decided not to come up with a separate land use or category, Camrose County and Woodland County.” Leckie said, “Rather than go through the bylaw amendment process and public hearing process, the County is going to generally fit that within the existing definition of agriculture as a permitted use, which means it can happen anywhere that agriculture is currently allowed.” Aside from the City’s concerns that the proposed developments fall outside of their interpretation of agricultural use and intensive agricultural use, the City is also concerned about the impact developments, such as these, will have on future growth and costs to ratepayers.

This letter to the editor is to address the concerns of a voter in regards to the Advanced Poll held in the Forum of the Augustana Campus of the University of Alberta. While their concerns are genuine, I feel their language grossly exaggerated the situation. These concerns can be resolved. This was the first time ever that an Advanced Poll was held at Augustana. As this was organized in collaboration with the UofA Students’ Union and the Augustana Students’ Association (ASA), it was organized primarily for students to have an accessible way to vote. Allowing all eligible voters a way to vote is an important part of our democracy. For many, driving back to their home riding, if they choose their parents’ address to be their home address, is unfeasible, especially as elections have been called at very inconvenient times for students in recent years. While the primary purpose was for students, other electors in the riding were also welcome to cast their advanced ballot for their home riding. As the voter came on the first day of Advanced Voting, there were some concerns that needed to be addressed. Students were passing by on their regular schedule between classes,

and some may have stopped to talk if they were not aware of the Advanced Poll taking place at the time. Some were talking about political parties at an inappropriate distance to the voting booth as mentioned. I question if any student intentionally ‘blocked’ his path. This issue was quickly addressed with better signage, a wall divider, and an elections staff wearing a safety vest for visibility and asking students to not stop and talk in the area for privacy later that day. While there were noise distractions, no one passing by was able to see what electors were writing on their ballots. For future years the ASA has suggested hosting the Advanced Poll in another location on campus such as the Faith and Life Lounge with pipeand-drape to ensure privacy of voters. Elections Alberta polling staff provide an important role in the voting process and while they may need some improvements in performing their job, I believe they should be paid for their work, and that students should have accessible ways to vote. Geordie Nelson, Camrose Polling help

I thank the ladies at the reception desk in the voting room for their consideration and kindness.

This all started when we arrived at the Camrose high school where our voting was to take place. We had to park on the street east of the school because the parking lot was full. There was no one directing traffic. Because I have serious pain in my hips and lower back, I hauled my cane out and walked with my spouse toward the door. At the bottom of the stairs there was a sign that said Vote Here, but the arrow pointed to the north. No other signs were seen and we followed other voters. Once inside, signs were certainly in evidence and as we continued through the myriad of hallways, it was becoming quite painful for me to walk and had to rest once near a railing. Finally, we reached the station. I asked the receptionist if I could sit in her chair. She obliged. We voted. The same receptionist suggested that my spouse bring our vehicle around to the north west door of the gym. It was less than 50 feet to the van. Thanks again to the nice receptionist. If I had known that it was so far to walk, I would not have voted because of the arrangement. Lew Goddard, Camrose

At first I thought it was funny. Headline: “Say goodbye, Canada. The North Pole is moving to Russia.” What? In a week when Albertans were preoccupied with an election, a Maclean’s article gave me something else to think about. Since elementary school, I’ve known there is more than one north pole. There is the geographic north pole–the physical location where our imaginary lines of longitude meet up. I can see the exact spot on a globe. Second, there is the magnetic north pole. I remember my dad talking about how a compass that points “north” doesn’t actually point to the geographic north pole–the place where the imaginary lines of longitude meet. Instead, “north” on a compass points to the magnetic north pole. The earth has magnetic field lines–invisible but not imaginary, which also converge in one spot. And that spot where real magnetic lines meet is not the geographic location where imaginary lines of longitude meet. It interests me that the spot where imaginary lines meet seems real to me because I can see it on a globe (an imaginary way to depict the earth). The spot where real magnetic lines meet feels imaginary because I cannot see it on a globe. ***

The key thing about the magnetic north pole is that it moves. The Maclean’s article says, “That impermanence has made the magnetic poles endlessly fascinating to scientists. The field’s lines are like stretchy, ungovernable elastic bands that gyrate around the Earth, protecting us from solar storms and galactic radiation.” As the magnetic north pole moves, that impacts maritime, airspace and land navigation–even smart phones. “True north” isn’t constant! The magnetic north pole’s location in Canada has been verified since 1831. But according to geophysicists who track the magnetic north pole, it’s heading out of Canada into Russia. We don’t know when that will happen, but it seems inevitable. Having the magnetic north pole within our country is part of our Canadian identity. If (when) it moves to Russia, how will be deal with the identity crisis? While I was thinking about that, the article took me a whole different place. ***

It quoted Canadian author Kathleen Winter. “My feeling is that the Earth’s forces might be indicating to us that it is time to stop our outmoded notions of borders, boundaries and ownership. Many globally significant phenomena, from weather to animal distress to human migration, are sending us a clear message that we need to make a gigantic shift in our collective thinking, away from small-minded notions of sovereignty and protectionism to something larger and more intelligent.” My mind flitted again. For the long term, given humanly-created challenges like global pollution, it seems obvious that we need to figure out how to cooperate on a global scale. On a smaller scale, we’ve demonstrated in many locations that we have the technical ability to clean up polluted air, water and land. If we can do it on a smaller scale, it’s almost certain to be technically possible to restore our world-wide air, land and water to a pristine state. We can figure out the technology. What we don’t yet have is…1. The widespread belief that it’s necessary. 2. The will to work with others for a good beyond our own “border” (whether that’s our community, our county or our continent). 3. The maturity and wisdom to cooperate for a higher good, with people we don’t know, trust or care about–because they are not us. “True north strong and free?” Turns out “true north” is movable. We can’t do anything about the moving magnetic north pole. We could do something about the sources of more wildfires, and all the sources of air, land and water pollution. ***

TC Precious Metals will be in Camrose and Leduc, making its way through Western Canada. You can bring your gold, silver, coins and Canadian paper money to the Norsemen Inn, Camrose or the Leduc Legion, between 10 am and 5 pm each day. No appointment is required. Terry Burrill is a precious metals buyer and President of TC Precious Metals headquartered in Airdrie, Alberta, and takes this show out to western Canada. “TC Precious Metals has the unique advantage of dealing direct with a smelter,” says Burrill. “This allows us to cut out one or even two middlemen. TC Precious Metals purchases gold and silver from other gold buyers, pawn shops, dentists, kers jewelers and jewelry makers all as well as from the general US public.” In terms of the US cees es dollar, gold and silver prices appear low, but the weak Canadian dollar means prices are strong.


Come See Us!

“If you decide to sell after hearing the quote, great, but it’s also about information,” says Burrill. “A lot of times people just need to know a ballpark price of what items are worth. There is no obligation and we don’t pressure anyone into selling.” “Nearly half of the world’s annual gold harvest comes from recycled gold. Energy costs are about $500 to mine a new ounce of gold, where recycled gold is about $10 per ounce.” As a result the gold and silver purchased at the shows, and later melted, goes back into the market with a lower environmental impact.

Spring is Here!

Drive attentively and watch for bicyclists. Tourism Camrose moving forward By Lori Larsen

Tourism Camrose experienced a year of new partnerships, growth and opportunities in 2018, to heighten the presence of tourism in and around Camrose. During the Tourism Camrose annual general meeting, reports were presented on the year looking back and the direction moving forward. Treasurer Kelaine Brand presented the 2018 profit and loss report showing the total income $65,160 and total expenses $61,398 resulting in a small surplus of $3,791. “This will go into our operating cushion, in the case of those years where we run a small deficit.” Brand reported that the 2018 balance sheet indicated just over $55,000 for an operating cushion. The proposed 2019 Operating Budget includes a total revenue of $67,651 and total expenses $63,730, resulting in a pro-

posed total income for 2019 of $3,921. “The 2019 budget is based on our 2018 spending plus or minus additional expenses as we expect them to arise,” explained Brand. The 2019 budget was approved as presented. Jason Heise and Malcolm Boyd were appointed as auditors. Camrose Tourism executive director, Jennifer Filip reported on some of the projects and initiatives from 2018 including: Prairie Fun Days which included three tour buses in 2018, year two of Lucky Highway 13, Poker Rally, which Filip indicated was cancelled due to low registration, Boomtown trail (corridors Highway 56 through 21) initiative in conjunction with seven partners along Boomtown Trail, the Purple Martin Festival and the Local Food Artisans of Camrose County, including a Long Table Dinner held at the

Bailey Theatre as a major fundraiser for the Bailey. “Some of the projects we are looking at doing (this year) include Prairie Fun Days, which we received approval for funding from the county,” said Filip explaining that the two variety tour buses from this year were not fully booked, but the newly added agriculture tour bus was fully booked, with a waiting list. This year Tourism Camrose will be looking at adding new stops to the Prairie Fun Days event. Along with continuing some of the projects that ran in 2018, Tourism Camrose will also be involved in promoting the Golf and Stay program and have initiated conversation with the Camrose Curling Club to determine the possibility of collaboration. Filip reported that the membership drive was down in 2018; however, the formation of a subcommittee for the 2019 drive will assist in approaching busi-

As I write this column, the fires at Notre Dame cathedral in Paris are still smoldering. French officials are already assessing the damage to the interior, and taking stock of the art and relics that survived, along with what might have been lost to the flames. From the moment that the shocking images of Notre Dame engulfed in smoke and flames began to circulate, journalists and commentators have endeavoured to explain Alex Carpenter, the significance of the catheMusic, Augustana Campus, University dral. For Parisians, and the of Alberta world at large, we are told, Notre Dame is many things: a nearly 900-year old triumph of European gothic architecture; an iconic building that testifies to the deep Catholic roots of the French nation; a source of cultural pride and identity; and an enduring symbol of “old Europe.” As an UNESCO World heritage site, the cathedral attracts 14 million tourists each year; Notre Dame is not only central to the urban landscape of Paris, but also represents the historical and cultural legacy of Western Europe. What has been glaringly absent, however, is a discussion of the musical importance of Notre Dame to the history of European music. Between the 12th and 13th centuries, as Notre Dame was under construction, a new style of music was emerging,and was directly associated with the cathedral. This style was related to the “Notre Dame School” of composers, of whom we only know two: Léonin and Pérotin. Their music survives in just a handful of manuscripts that had originally been part of the now lost Magnus liber organi, or Great Book of Organum. Originally written by Léonin, and then expanded by Pérotin, this book contained some of the most important developments in the history of music. Organum is the harmonization and elaboration of plainchant, better known as Gregorian chant. Léonin added a second, highly decorated melodic part overtop of sloweddown, stretched-out lines of chant melody, which served as the foundation for new musical works; Pérotin later added a third and fourth part over this foundation, creating true polyphony—the first music with a complex, multi-voiced texture. Why should this medieval music matter to us? Because without organum, the music of today would be very different. First, the organum of the Notre Dame School enshrines the importance of harmony: musical pitches sounding together—not quite yet chords, as we understand them, but nonetheless a new approach to composition concerned with both the horizontal (melody) and vertical (harmony) axes of music, working together. Second, and perhaps most important, organum introduces rhythm to music in a systematic way, as a key aspect of the compositional and creative process. Gregorian chant has no rhythm or pulse: the music follows the syllables of the text, and every note has the same value. In organum, starting with Léonin, notes began to be put in small, pre-fabricated rhythmic groups or patterns, called modes. With these rhythmic modes also came a new method for writing music, which allowed notes to have different relative durations and the melodic lines to have greater independence and thus greater musical interest. This polyphonic organum serves as a metaphor for the cathedral, and for the aesthetic of medieval architecture. Constructed upon a firm base, it builds upwards energetically and aspirationally, with ever-increasing elaboration and, like Notre Dame itself, the music of Léonin and Pérotin is a kind of repository for traditions and holy relics, namely Gregorian chant melodies, which are preserved and venerated as the “foundation stones” of organum. The Harvard art historian Patricio del Real, in a now infamous quote, recently asserted that Notre Dame, as a building, “was so overburdened with meaning that its burning feels like an act of liberation.” This is a perverse thing for a historian to say, and I couldn’t disagree more. The richness of meaning found in Notre Dame is a gift to scholars, visitors, and admirers alike. The cathedral’s musical history alone is a legacy that should be known and both warrants and welcomes our enjoyment and study. Without the harmonic and rhythmic innovations of Notre Dame organum, what would music sound like today?

“At the development stage, our position would be that people should pay their share of the development costs because they are going to see the benefit of it,” noted Boyd. “If the County allows developments like this to happen, and they allow it to happen without servicing requirements provided by the City, ultimately the City will develop out to that point, with services, that those developments didn’t contribute to. That then makes it more expensive for City developers or City ratepayers. “These developments are good for Camrose as a region, but do come with long term implications because they won’t be serviced properly.” Boyd referred again to the importance of the IDP. “That agreement is what we use to protect ratepayers and developers (future development) against expenses that should be shared with the developments on our boundary. It also protects residents and future residents of the City of Camrose from areas surrounding them, that are defined as agriculture, being developed to include facilities such as the cannabis production plant.” The City is seeking a fair solution that works for both the County and the City. “Without having that, we risk loss of economic development because no one understands the rules and why there is such a difference between the City’s and the County’s interpretation of agricultural use and that can create an uncertainty for investors,” concluded Boyd. Leckie said. “Going along with that is the loss of long term revenue from those investments and the loss of jobs. We need to work together.”

Unit manager, Joann Reinhart of Covenant Health St. Mary’s Hospital Camrose, was honoured with the Sisters of Providence award at the Milestones Long Service Celebrations banquet at the Camrose Resort Casino. “It’s a difficult task to

You have the respect for the patients, families and you instill that respect in all of us. You always say, what would my mother say—if this was my mother, how would I care for her? Those are the words that brought us together to solve complex problems,” she added. “You make your staff feel supported and encouraged. You thoughtfully advocate for resources determining priorities and filling any gaps that the patients may have,” said Cherylyn. “Your drive and determination are qualities that we value so much and you are a leader at St. Mary’s that we are very proud to have.” “The sisters showed us what can be done with perseverance, dedication and take on basically any challenge. Be called to serve is no small responsibility. Long services awards like milestones gives us an opportunity to celebrate you, the people you care about and, service you provide,” said Linda ChowTurner, senior operating officer with Covenant Health. “Winston Churchill said we make a living working at what we do, but we make a life by what we give, and I would add by how we give through compassion and thus have touched so many lives by what we do. We want to express our continued gratitude for what you do in this community,” said Agnes Hoveland, community and foundation board member. Sheila Carriere, Jacqueline Frost, Carleen Nelson, Jennifer-Lynn Schneider, the team of Kelsey Blackwell and Sharene Lamson and the inpatient care team of Dr. Cathy Botha, Dr. Martin Botha, Dr. Larry Chapman, Dr. Louis Minders and Julie Rondeau were also nominated for the Sisters of Providence award.

Hike to remember those lost By Lori Larsen

When it comes to caring, Camrose and area residents talk the talk and walk the walk during the annual Hike for Hospice kick off to Palliative Care Week. Walk alongside others on Sunday, May 5, beginning at 1 p.m. at the Hospice Society of Camrose and District Hike for Hospice, beginning at the Hospice office on the bottom floor of the Mirror Lake Centre (5415-49 Avenue) facing the lake, and feel the support of others as you remember those who have passed. “The walk is about a remembrance of those who have passed away. Those we have lost and will never forget,” said Hospice volunteer and former board member Wanita Toews. “It is also a reminder that we are a caring and loving community that help each other and that we are all just walking each other ‘Home’.” This year, the Hospice Society of Camrose and District is partnering with Battle River Watershed Alliance to help raise

awareness of both palliative/grief care and the life-giving watershed. The event will begin with an opening ceremony followed by BRWA’s own general manager David Samm, piping the beginning of the walk around Mirror Lake. Once participants return to the Hospice Centre, a barbecue hosted by BRWA will be available for people to sit and enjoy a burger and share in conversation. “There will also be a silent auction bake sale, which we have had great success with in the past,” said Toews. “The funds raised will be used for compassionate services for our local residents, to support those struggling with chronic illness and their families.” Everyone of all ages are invited to come out and join in the family friendly, fun event in celebration of life and life lost and the sustainable life of our watersheds. For more information, telephone 780-608-0636 or visit the Hospice website www.camrose to pledge a walker.

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster Hospice Society of Camrose and District program coordinator and grief and bereavement coordinator Bill Harder, left, and Battle River Watershed Alliance general manager David Samm display a painting and verse that sum up the importance of the Hike for Hospice.

You have heard them at various weddings and business functions, now you can hear them To be held in conjunction with the play your favourite tunes on stage at the Bailey Theatre on April 26, beginning at 8 p.m. on May 11, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. “We were asked to come back to the Judging between 2 and 3 p.m. Bailey Theatre and play music that you OPEN TO ALL VEHICLES can dance to. It will be cabaret style, so (Old, New, Custom, Stock, Motorbikes … anything that drives!) people can be social and dance, listen to Prizes will be awarded to Top Three! music,” said Chad Szott, a member of the REGISTRATION: $5 Register at 9 a.m. on Hanson Street – watch for signs. River Jacks. Please call Linda if you have any questions: 780-781-6709 The River Jacks are a five-piece band with members from the Camrose and Flagstaff Counties, who excel at playing popular music from the last four decades of music. “Before there were DJs, live bands would play in halls solely for the purpose of having dances and we wanted to get back to that kind of music. We wanted to have a live band that could play those venues, the local halls,” added Chad. They play country, pop and rock covers from a large repertoire of the most popular 200 or so songs, guaranteed to get Submitted guests dancing. “Bands used The River Jacks encourage everyone to bring their dancing shoes to the to play all night to Bailey Theatre on April 26 for a fun evening.


provide entertainment and it evolved over time. The Bailey Theatre is all about live entertainment and we wanted to capture an evening of dancing and upbeat music,” added Chad. River Jacks offer a live band to provide the music you want to listen and dance to. “We play music that people want to hear. At one point, we toyed about playing our own music, but we decided to play well-known songs that people know and enjoy. People can request songs. We took a lot of time and effort to learn songs that people want to hear,” said Chad. Myra Marshall, Tom Lichak, Chad Szott, drummer Jeff Oron and bass guitarist Garrett Richaud blend rich harmonies and strong instruments. “We all sing and play a number of instruments. It is not just one person doing all of the vocals, so the audience gets a mix of vocals. It is more interesting if everyone sings. They are all good musicians and are good people as well. We spend a lot of time together, so we have to work together and enjoy what we are doing. Music is the common thing that pulls us all together. Everyone is on the same page and has the same goal. We all have our own interests, but we put that aside and play the music people want to hear.” Playing in front of local fans is something the band wants to do on a regular basis. “It is exciting to play at the Bailey Theatre. It is great to have a historical venue in Camrose and small-town community halls. We have chosen to stay close to home, within an hour and a half, so it reduces the travel, which we all enjoy,” explained Chad. “We want to provide that live band experience at our shows. It is not all about us. We are happy playing music and that is what we want to do.”

Turner trades office for music By Murray Green

Get ready for an evening of storytelling, through song with singer/ songwriter Sue Turner. Her jazz, blues and folk music can be heard in Camrose at the Fika Coffeehouse on April 27, beginning at 7 p.m. Entry is by donation at the door. Expect the good doctor to put her best foot

forward while on tour. The podiatrist (foot doctor) turned musician, is excited to share her songs in a cozy setting. Encouraged by her audience’s response to her 2018 album Later is a Lie, Sue heeded some advice she offers listeners in the title cut: Don’t wait for life and love to work out,

’cause life goes on and nobody knows. “Although I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to help my patients with their foot problems, I always felt I was ‘spinning [my] wheels to nowhere,’ ” said Sue. “The feedback I got from my audience confirmed what I sing about – that life is short and if you

want to make a difference, you have to act now.” She later discovered the power of these words, while recuperating from a broken foot in the months following the release of her album. While many of her friends and colleagues question swapping a doctor’s pay cheque for a shot at singing for her supper, Sue has the support of one music-industry heavy hitter. “Her melodies are gorgeous and strong as they wryly expose the intimate details of her reckless living in the aftermath of burned out Winnebagos and other temporary residences. Do not miss this wonderful folk-singer when she comes to perform near you on her Canadian tour this year,” urges tunesmith Bruce Miller, who has spent the last three decades in Nashville writing for some of the biggest country acts, including the Dixie Chicks, Rascal Flatts and Reba McEntyre. He often hits the road with her on tour. Sue began this year gearing up for her first crossCanada tour, recruiting a band, applying to folk and blues festivals and booking club dates in between. The Later is a Lie 2019 Tour begins April 19, when Sue climbs onto the Via Rail train destined for Edmonton, and then onwards toward Toronto, and then Halifax. She will perform for travellers thrice daily as part of the railroad’s Artist on Board program.

County orders new patrol vehicle By Murray Green

Camrose County Protective Services will be getting a new patrol vehicle one year ahead of schedule. “The oldest patrol unit in the fleet was nearing 300,000 km and was scheduled for replacement in 2020. On March 17, the engine failed on the unit. We received quotes from local mechanic shops for the cost to purchase and install a used engine, as well as quotes to rebuild the engine in the range of $6,400 to $9,800,” said Mike Kuzio, protective services manager. Due to the cost and the fact it would be replaced in a year anyway, it was recommended to council on March 26 that a new vehicle be ordered instead. “I move that Camrose County council authorize the $60,000 transfer to reserve in the Protective Services budget, be moved to a capital expenditure to purchase a replacement vehicle,” said councillor Trevor Miller. “Given the extent of the repairs required on this vehicle and the fact that it is at the end of its useful life, it is most economical to replace it at this time,” added Kuzio. “Money spent on repairs this year will not be recoverable costs in the disposal of this asset by next year, when it is due to be replaced.”

Covenant Health has been named one of Alberta’s Top 75 Employers in 2019. The values and commitment that earned Covenant Health this award are reflected in the way St. Mary’s Hospital staff care for their patients. “We are honoured to be recognized as a leading employer in Alberta,” said Covenant Health CEO Patrick Dumelie. “This award is really a testament to the dedication and hard work of our teams. Each day they come together to serve Albertans with compassion and integrity, and the result is excellent care and a workplace that attracts people who are committed to making a difference in their communities.” In 2017-18, St. Mary’s had 507 staff, 111 volunteers 9,011 outpatient visits, 18,305 emergency visits, 307 births and 76 acute care beds.

patients and residents, as well as valuable employment for community members. Covenant Health is one of Canada’s largest Catholic health care organizations with over 15,000 physicians, employees and volunteers serving in 12 communities across Alberta. A major provider in Alberta’s integrated health system, Covenant Health works with Alberta Health Services and community partners to positively influence the health of Albertans through a broad range of programs and services. Covenant Health St. Mary’s Hospital Camrose serves a diverse and growing rural community with a wide range of acute care services. St. Mary’s Hospital serves with hospitality and compassion, carrying on the spirit of the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul who founded the hospital in 1924. It provides a broad range of services, including emergency care, child health, community cancer centre, coronary care, critical care, surgery, geriatric services, gynecology, mental health, obstetrics, orthopedics, palliative care, stroke services and urology. The Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul from Kingston, Ontario were living their mission of empowering the vulnerable through compassionate service, advocacy and networking, when they responded to an invitation from the mayor and council of Camrose to establish a hospital in the area. In October 1922, two Sisters arrived to choose a site with the mayor, a large block of land on Normal Hill, which the Sisters deemed as very appropriate. This peaceful scene was a stark contrast to the trials the Sisters faced during their first winter in Camrose– temperatures dropped to 54 degrees below zero, with snow so deep doctors had to make house calls on foot, but the Sisters persevered and in 1924, the hospital opened its doors. To accommodate the growing community, a new wing was added just five years later. A nursing school was opened, educating girls in the community to help sustain the hospital’s operations. Through inclement weather, burst pipes, crowded rooms and scarce clean drinking water, the Sisters provided compassionate care to those in need. Now 95 years later, that still hasn’t changed.

Supporting sisters around the world By Lori Larsen

The Rotary Club of Camrose Daybreak and Rotary Club of Camrose, along with volunteers from the community, are changing the way young girls feel about themselves all over the world, with the simple gesture of a small, colourful cloth bag filled with feminine hygiene products. Days for Girls is an international not-for-profit program that began in 2008 with Founder and CEO Celeste Mergens. Mergens had been working with a family foundation in the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya where she began assisting at an orphanage. She soon discovered the young girls at the orphanage were not receiving any feminine hygiene education or actual assistance, in fact they were left in the orphanage sitting on cardboard for several days each month during their menstrual cycle. Through trial and tribulation Mergens persisted and the Days for Girls program has now reached more than one million women and girls in over 125 countries, supplying kits and menstrual health education. Camrose Rotary Club Daybreak came on board with the Days For Girls initiative in 2014. “Since we started assembling and preparing kits we have sent 2,792 kits for distribution (worldwide),” said Rotarian Carol Davies-Pedersen. “Our kits have gone to Zimbabwe, Peru, Uganda and Guatemala.” Volunteers gather for kit assembly events throughout the year on Thursdays and one week-

end day, devoting their own time to sew, serge and assemble the kits that contain eight absorbent liners, one washcloth, two pairs of ladies underwear, one bar of soap, two waterproof shields, two zip-lock plastic bags for washing and storage and a care and use instruction sheet all contained in a drawstring bag. “Our volunteer base is 80 per cent non-Rotary members,” noted DaviesPedersen. “Daybreak Rotary here in Camrose has funded us since the beginning; as well, the Rotary Club of Spruce Grove gave us funding last year.” On Saturday, April 13, a group of approximately 25 volunteers gathered at the Rotary Youth Centre and quickly busied themselves in assembly-line fashion, putting together kits to be sent to Zimbabwe Cyclone Relief. While the gracious volunteers each completed their assigned tasks with efficiency, there was still time for a little idle chat with the odd laugh or two. “I have met so many wonderful people volunteering for Days for Girls,” said Davies-Pedersen. Volunteers of all ages, male and female, were there to make a difference in the lives of young women they have never met, but share the common bond of humanity.

Allergies bring on dry eyes By Lori Larsen

As the snow melts and the snow mould rears its ugly head, tender buds begin popping and grass wakes from a long winter, many people also begin to feel the affects of seasonal allergies, including dry eye. The Alberta Association of Optometrists recently released the results of a survey revealing that 90 per cent of Albertans are affected by symptoms of dry eye. Results of the survey also showed that almost three in five Albertans who experienced dry eye symptoms did nothing to treat the condition.

the winter. During the winter, the little humidity we had in the air during our (short) summer is removed from the air by the cold and falls back as snow, leaving the air dry. A dry environment will inevitably lead to dry eyes. Seniors are more susceptible to this than younger individuals.” A l-Beka i indicated that there are many factors that can cause dry eye sy mpt om s. “ They can result from the reading and computer use, contact lens wear, aging, menopause, arid climates and dry or windy conditions and smoking.”

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster Drops provide some relief for dry eyes but persistent issues should be addressed by professional eye care specialists.

Symptoms vary when it comes to dry eye; however, 74 per cent of Albertans responding to the survey reported a feeling of something foreign in the eye and teary eyes. Other symptoms include burning sensation, watery eyes, itchy eyes, aching sensations, heavy eyes, fatigued eyes, sore eyes, dryness sensation, red eyes, blurred vision and photophobia (light sensitivity). Camrose optometrist Dr. Monzer Al-Bekai, along with the AAO, has been working to raise awareness about dry eye symptoms and the importance of proper treatment. “Because of its location and geography, Alberta is a very dry place to live especially in

As well, some medications can cause dry eye symptoms. Moderate to severe cases of dry eye can also lead to blurred vision, light sensitivity or even periods of excess tearing. Dry eye can cause difficulty for contact lens users, by increasing the irritation in the eye. Many people resort to over-the-counter drops or lubricating eye creams, which may offer temporary relief; however, symptoms of dry eye could indicate a more serious problem such as an eyelid infection or disease. Persistent symptoms should be treated by an eye care specialist/optometrist. For more information, visit

Comet flew with 428 Cobra Jet engine By Murray Green

As a teenager of 19, Edward Kusalik was popular with people his age because he owned one of the most powerful engines ever made, in his 1968 Mercury Comet. “This was the most high-performance engine that Ford put out, the 428 Cobra-Jet engine. In 1967, Ford was in competition with big three and had a 427 intercepter engine, but they needed an engine with more torque and more horsepower. I was born in Chatham, Ontario, and in 1968, I had a 1966 Ford Mustang. It was battleship grey with a maroon interior,” recalled Ed. Sandy Elliot owned the local Ford-Mercury dealership in Ed’s hometown. He formed the Sandy Elliot Ford Drag Racing Team in the late ’60s. “In the back of his shop, Barrie Poole and John Elliot had a speed shop. I went in to see Barrie and asked what it would cost me to fix up my ‘66 Mustang with a high performance 289 engine and to beef up the rear end,” explained Ed. “He told me about $2,200 – that was a lot of money back then. He said, ‘Wait.’ Charlie Mission was a salesman and I knew him, so I went to talk to him. He told me a new car was coming out. It was going to be a 1968 Comet two-door hardtop, that Sandy had made arrangements with Ford-Mercury to drop a new 428 Cobra Jet engine into it. This car was the only one that could handle that engine. It had the muscle,” continued Daysland mayor Ed. “Charlie said, ‘Why don’t you buy something like this? Only 42 cars are being made.’ So when the car came in, I saw it in the showroom and fell in love with it. The Comet was a heavier car and you could get them in a four-speed or a C6 automatic transmission. I wanted the automatic because I went through too many clutches racing. It had 391 gears in the rear end with posi-traction. The only power option was disc brakes. It had chrome valve covers and chrome air breather. The only thing


Kusalik Photos Ed Kusalik had the fastest car on the streets with his 1968 Comet with a 428 Cobra Jet engine in it. The engine was unstoppable on the track and was impressive driving around town. Ed owned one of the first Cobra Jet cars in Canada.

to identify that it had the Cobra Jet engine, was the Shelby cobra on the side,” said Ed, as he went down memory lane. “I bought that car for $3,850, picked it up on a Friday and went cruising. The sound of it idling was pure music to me. This was fantastic. I was going down Main Street with everyone watching me. They didn’t call me Fast Eddie for nothing. That car on the drag strip did 14.2 seconds in a quarter mile. I ran Mickey Thompson tires on it. When on the track, I took those off and put on cheater slicks that I bolted to the rim. If I didn’t, they would spin on the rim and you would end up with two flat tires,” he said. “The only car that ever beat me was a 1968 Camaro with an SS 396 with a four-speed and it was by a half a car length. Those were nice cars, too.” Ed had a rare car and a rare engine with only 42 built. “My serial number was 0008 and you could

only purchase these cars from the Sandy Elliot dealership. I don’t know of any that came out west.” Out of the 42, none survived the rigorous racing scene the cars were put through. “I asked the dealership in Lethbridge what it would be worth today and was told put a one in front of it and add six zeroes on the end. It was a single production series. Because that engine was so popular, Poole and John Elliot took two 428 Cobra Jet engines and dropped them into Mustangs. One had a C6 automatic and the other a four-speed manual transmission. They were identical otherwise. The reason they were called the Border Bandits is because everywhere they raced south of the border, they won.” The popularity of the engine grew like a legend, and the next year, the 429 Cobra Jet engine was created. “In 1969, you could get the 429 in not just the Comet, but also in the Ford

Fairlane. In Taber, I saw a 1970 Ford Fairlane with a 429 Cobra Jet engine in it. I knew the guy and I asked him if he knew where the front bumper was made. He said no, so I told him at

Rockwell International in Chatham, because I made it. That is who I worked for at the time. We made the Fairlane, Barracuda, Tempest and Suburban bumpers.”

Downtown Camrose looks at bright future By Lori Larsen

Downtown Camrose looks ahead at a future of businesses working together to maintain a strong downtown zone and continue building on a unique experience for consumers. In his report given during the annual general meeting, Downtown Camrose board chairman Andrey Sokolov indicated that despite the previous year being somewhat turbulent, the goal of the Downtown Camrose board is to build more community within the businesses. “We also want to reduce our bad debts moving forward and use the Downtown Camrose executive director (Bettyann Skagen) to promote our business and grow as a community. “The big box stores are not going away, so we need to adapt and modify what we are doing to work as a community which will also help us to withstand the onslaught of Amazon. “We need to work together to make this year better and to make Downtown Camrose relevant to the next generation that is coming up, including university students as well as people who come from afar to shop here.” Downtown Camrose executive director Bettyann Skagen reported on the year in review. “We are working hard to build on awareness in Downtown Camrose. I have been out and about visiting a variety of businesses hearing their feedback and ideas.” Skagen noted that, along with the board, she has been building on relationships with various stakeholders such as the City of Camrose, Tourism Camrose, Camrose and District Chamber of Commerce, and the plan for 2019 is to reach out to others as well. She reported on three successful events that occurred during November and December and stated that initiating more events and opportunities as well as promoting the Downtown Dollars program are some of the main goals moving forward. “We want to identify some areas and get some input from members, what they are feeling for 2019.” Financial report

The financial report, compiled by Align Accounting and Tax, was summarized by City of Camrose councillor Greg Wood. There was discussion on some budget dollars being allocated towards rosemalling, maintenance and decorative lighting. Planning ahead

In reporting on the 2018-20 Tactical Plan/ Strategy, Skagen reported that they have been working toward achieving the

strategies laid out in the previous year and will continue moving forward. “In 2018, we worked on stakeholder engagement and growth and development. We are also working towards maintaining and enhancing Downtown Camrose as a regional destination and retail and service centre. With reference to the Bettyann Is In the Zone Campaign, Skagen indicated she has been working with existing and new businesses on building more awareness and exposure. “I also want to create a campaign addressing businesses who do not have a storefront – they are located down the hall in the basement or back. We need to be able to give them some exposure.” She added that the strategy also identifies enhancing programming at Founders Square, the Lions Centennial Park and Downtown Farmers’ Market. “It’s important for us to be utilizing businesses beyond the Market and we should look at using the Lions Centennial Park during the market as well for buskers or entertainment.” Skagen said that part of moving forward will also include more involvement and communication with the Camrose Chamber, Tourism Camrose, the City of Camrose, the Bailey Theatre, Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre and Augustana to work together on Downtown Camrose enhancing and being a part of their promotions and events. “We have to include the businesses when something is happening. They are what makes it successful.” Continued on page 37

Join Ole Uffda at the spring run By Murray Green

It is not spring until you have entered Ole’s Spring Run Off. The first outdoor run of the local running season will be held on May 11 starting at 10 a.m. “We welcome you to our fun race in Camrose. You can enter the eight km, three km or the one km Kids’ Fun Run,” said Robert Renman, one of the local organizers. Located in our beautiful city, the route takes you through a scenic run or walk into the valley using the trail system. “We are hoping to get as many runners back from last year as possible. I hope the word spreads to others that this is a good run in which to participate in Camrose. I’d like to see 150

to 200 runners out,” said Robert. The start is at Stoney Creek Centre, east on 39 Avenue toward the ski hill. The eight km course has one somewhat challenging hill, which comes at about 4.5 km into the race. The three km race has no hills and is a very flat course. The course is in the same location as last year. “We will have Ole out encouraging the children to run and have fun. We have had good weather in the past, only one bad year. We have a lot of prizes. I want to remind people that they don’t have to run, you can walk the course as well.” The Kids’ Fun Run begins at 11 a.m. and the theme colour is white this

year. Participants receive a Camrose Running Club shirt and a special medal. Online registration will close on Wednesday, May 8 at 6 p.m. Registration can also

Alberta about to be set on the right path

By Kevin Sorenson, MP, Battle River-Crowfoot

I am extremely pleased to congratulate my friend and former colleague, Jason Kenney, for his stunning victory on April 16. The Premier-designate of Alberta will be sure to put this province on the right path to restored prosperity, higher employment and concrete action on pipelines. After capturing 55.12 per cent of the popular vote and 63 seats, Kenney promised, “Help is on the way and hope is on the horizon.” This is especially true for our part of Alberta with the excellent representation of: Nate Horner – Drumheller-Stettler; Garth Rowswell – Vermilion-Lloydminister-Wainwright; Rick Wilson – Maskwacis-Wetaskiwin; Jackie Lovely – Camrose; and incumbent, Nathan Cooper – Olds-Didsbury. The United Conservative Party’s (UCP) help could not come soon enough as more than 120,000 oil and gas workers have lost their jobs under the Trudeau Liberals and 12,500 more Canadians are expected to lose their jobs this year in this very important industry. We need a strong Alberta premier who is not afraid to stand up to the Prime Minister and demand more recognition and respect for Western Canada and, in particular, the energy sector. The federal Liberal government has not built a single inch of the Trans Mountain Expansion after purchasing it with Canadians’ tax dollars for $4.5 billion. They cancelled the Northern Gateway Pipeline and helped kill Energy East. These were the only proposed options for export of our oil beyond the Untied States. On April 18, while I was writing this column, the Liberals announced that they would be extending the deadline to make a final decision on the Trans Mountain Expansion until June 18. According to the Liberal government, this will give them time to complete the Phase III consultations with Indigenous groups. It also means that the Trans Mountain Expansion will miss another summer construction season – adding significant delays to the completion of this project. In February, the National Energy Board concluded that the project is in the Canadian public interest and should be approved, subject to 156 recommended conditions and 16 new, non-binding recommendations to the federal government. Within a week of the court ruling, Conservatives had a rescue plan for the Trans Mountain Expansion, calling for immediate emergency retroactive legislation to affirm the NEB’s determination that Transport Canada, as the federal department that regulates shipping, was the appropriate department to assess the impact of marine traffic related to the Trans Mountain Expansion. While I am appalled, but not surprised, the Liberals have failed to meet the deadline on Trans Mountain, I do hope they fail to meet their deadline for passing Bill C-69 as it continues to lose support. As Senators, the majority of whom were appointed by Trudeau, are trying to rewrite this Bill, the Alberta Assembly of Treaty Chiefs, representing 48 First Nations, recently revoked their support. They now join the National Chiefs Council and the majority of Treaty 7 First Nations in opposition. The Mining Association of Canada, which initially supported the Bill, is now demanding significant amendments. Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland all oppose Bill C-69. As you will recall from one of my columns in late January, Bill C-69, the Impact Assessment Act, proposes to remove the approval for pipelines and nuclear facilities from two expert regulators, the National Energy Board (NEB) and the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC). The NEB is to be replaced by the Canadian Energy Regulator and a new Impact Assessment Agency that reports to the minister of environment who will now be responsible for pipeline approvals. I am confident, given how well I know Alberta Premier-elect, Jason Kenney, that he will fight as hard as he can against Bill C-69. I am equally confident he will stand up for our canola farmers. We need the type of leadership and diplomacy Jason demonstrated as minister of immigration to help resolve the Canada-China canola trade dispute which has been going on far too long.

Hoops coach, player earn top female awards By Murray Green

Augustana Vikings basketball player Jessica Haenni was named the top female athlete of the year and her coach Robyn Fleckenstein was selected as the top coach at the Life Awards to students and staff on April 10, at the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre. She had a little help from the coach of the year. “We missed the playoffs last year, so our team pulled together to reach that goal this year,” said Robyn, Vikings coach and the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference coach of the year. “It (coach award) came with the whole package of the team getting better since last year.” The team learned how to overcome adversity. “We had good start to the season. Towards the end, other teams did a good job of scouting us and finding weaknesses and making adjustments, which forced us to get better, and make the adjustments we needed to make,” said Robyn. “It wasn’t easy for us, but it put us in the best place possible to beat Medicine Hat in the first game of the playoffs. That was huge for the program, not just the one night. When you look back, none of that happens if we didn’t have the second half that we did.” Jessica led the women’s basketball team to a 15-9 record, a berth in the playoffs and scored 353 points

in the regular season. Augustana went 1-2 in the playoffs to place fourth. “Jessica is the hardest working player I have ever coached. She is a sponge, so coachable because she wants to learn and improve and she has implemented everything we talked

about,” said Robyn. “She is the first one at the gym and the last one to leave. She is just a workhorse. We implemented a weight program the second summer and she came back looking ripped. Everything we gave Jess, she is running with it

and implementing it into her game.” Robyn said Jessica slips that dedication and attitude into all aspects of her life. “She is a great teammate and makes sure it is about the team and not about her. She wants to win and doesn’t care

about awards, but awards are what happen when you achieve your goals. Jessica pushes her teammates to be better and she is willing to listen to others. Our team was a family this year and that is how our team changed. Jessica was a big part of that.”

Cross-country runners are a smart team By Murray Green

You have to be smart to be on the University of Alberta Augustana Cam-

pus cross-country running team. The Vikings were named the top scholar team


with the highest grade point average at the Life Awards night on April 10. “We had a really good

year considering that we had a lot of graduating runners the year before. We were fifth in Canada with the men’s team and ninth with the women’s, so both were top 10 teams. We had some great additions from first-year runners this year. Both of our teams were nationally ranked and that is pretty good for a young team. It bodes well for next year. They are keen and some are even running right now,” said Gerhard Lotz, Vikings cross-country running coach. “I didn’t think about it much, although I did see the GPA for the fall term. It is unbelievable to have a 3.63 GPA when they are so dedicated to running.” When the recruiting process takes place, sometimes the coaches are looking for great runners as a priority. “Our running team has always had a high GPA. There is something about runners. They have that discipline that is needed for individual running and they apply that in school. Typically, they

are bright guys and girls. Most of the team GPA winners are 3.2 or 3.3, so to have 3.63 is great. I think it is fantastic. I don’t take any credit for it. But Robert (assistant coach Renman) and I do talk about how schooling comes first, but really it is them,” added Gerhard. “That physical activity does clear the mind for learning.” Students who have a high GPA are ready to learn. “It means we have a group of athletes who are committed to both school and running,” continued Robert. “It is a nice bonus. We don’t do a lot of recruiting like some sports. We find runners and try to work with them to get better. They have the discipline to run and study, making time for both. They have to find the time to run and train and that means discipline that tends to transfer over to studies as well. They learn to manage time and make the most of what they have.”

Golfer Harrison named top Vikings athlete By Murray Green

Augustana Vikings golf Michael Harrison was named the top male athlete of the year at the Life Awards to students and staff on April 10 at the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre. “This was our fifth year in the ACAC with Augustana. I’m very proud of the team and what we have done. We’ve had a gold, silver and a couple of bronze medals. Last year, I knew it was going to be a difficult year because it was a rebuilding year. I had Michael and Braden returning for a third year, but we just missed out going to the national championship. Michael was the conference player of the year and as a result he received a berth in Medicine Hat. He did exceptionally well and that was exciting for the college. Now the two of them will be fourth year golfers,” said Bill. “Not only is Michael a good golfer, but he is an honour student with a 4.0 GPA throughout his time at Augustana. I was so impressed with the young man when we went to Chilliwack to play

in the Western Canadian University Games where he placed in the top 10. People hadn’t even heard of Augustana University and they were coming up to us and asking us about it. He handled everything fantastically and I couldn’t have been prouder,” added Bill. “There will be a huge void when he leaves.” Bill said Michael is always willing to help out by going to schools and talking to students. “The Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference season was good where I managed to win a couple of tournaments. I made it to provincials in Medicine Hat. It was fun to play good golf and compete at the highest level I can in the ACAC and CCAA,” said Michael. “Over the years it helps to get more experience, so you learn new things and get more comfortable with the advanced levels of the game and competition. It is a progression through the years,” explained Michael. He is heading into his final year at Augustana this fall. “I would love for the team to have a good finish at provincials,

since we are hosting this year (at Coal Creek). I’m excited for my last year and hope we can make it as good as it possibly can be. Braden Clarkson and I have been on the team for four years now, so we shoulder the responsibilities now of organizing things for the team. To get other players to play their best, giving as many tips as possible, when we are going into tourna-

ments and what to expect and how to manage themselves on the course is what I can do to help my teammates, to be their best,” shared Michael. He was invited to play in the Pacific Coast Amateur in July in New Mexico. “I qualified for that tournament through the Alberta Open last year, which is a provincial professional event. It is a great to opportunity

for me and I’m excited to play in it. It is a hard one to get into,” explained Michael. “Bill Penny is a great coach and he always makes sure we have a place to play and practice. Now we have Jerry Lukasewich helping out from Coal Creek so that is good.” The ACAC golf championships will be held in Coal Creek this fall.

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.
