Eggertson honoured at Art Walk By Murray Green

Camrose arts director Jane Cherry-Lemire marked the 24th year of the Art Walk by holding a reception at the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre, Sept. 4. The Art Walk was led by the City of Camrose for the first five years. “It was decided to approach the Camrose Arts Society to see if they wished to take it over. The arts society was happy to take the helm and has worked hard to continue this great initiative,” said Jane. “Each year, we have showcased hundreds of artists in nine to 12 venues, many who have been involved since inception.” She thanked all those

who have helped make the Art Walk a success for 24 years. The artwork will be on display at the Lougheed Centre until Sept. 20. Frank Eggertson

A portrait of Frank Eggertson was unveiled to honour his contribution to the arts scene in Camrose. “Frank was a friend of mine and also served as the Camrose Arts Society president for many years. He was a drummer and a visionary. He recognized more than 20 years ago that Camrose needed a performing arts centre and set about finding ways to make that happen,” recalled Jane. “He began hounding and stalking Mayor Norm Mayer and then dean (Augustana) Roger Epp

and put together a team of like-minded people to get the ball rolling. He is one of those unsung heroes who does not receive the same recognition and he never expected it,” said Jane. “We lost Frank in 2011 after he moved to BC. It is sad to know that he never got to see his dream manifested and many people have no idea what role he played in the manifestation.” The Eggertson portrait by local artist Tommy Acosta will hang on the wall near the stairs of the second floor of the Lougheed Centre. “Although Frank would not have wanted a fuss made over him, we are very grateful for this wonderful gesture of recognition,” continued Jane.

Augustana Research Station reaches for the stars By Murray Green

The University of Alberta Augustana Campus is expanding, but you may not see any changes on the Camrose landscape. The addition of classroom space and the Hesje Observatory is being built at the Augustana Miquelon Lake Research Station over this past summer and should be completed later this fall. “The new classroom will be an extension to the existing building and will be able to seat 25 students with desks and about 50 without desks,” said Dr. Glynnis Hood, manager of the research station and professor of environmental science. It was named the Hesje Observatory in honour of alumnus Brian Hesje, who made a $500,000 gift to University of Alberta Augustana Campus to help fund the construction of the telescope building and classroom space. “He wanted to support Augustana and existing infrastructure and this was impressed by the imagination and ‘out-ofthe-box’ thinking presented by Augustana. He wanted to have a big impact on learning and, with Miquelon Lake being only one of 13 dark sky preserves in Canada, this space made sense as the location of the observatory. Astronomy is one of the seven classical disciplines within liberal arts. It is the only one we don’t currently offer at Augustana,” said Sydney Tancowny, advancement communications coordinator at Augustana. The telescope that will be in the observatory is 17-inches mounted permanently in the observatory (10 metres off the ground), weighing about 50 kg. This will greatly enhance students’ learning experience when it comes to studying the universe. The addition and telescope benefits not only Augustana students, but all students and learners of all ages. “For physics and math students, this creates an opportunity to do real observing and measuring on lots of things such as star brightness, star colours and learning about the universe. It’s a great learning facility for students with an observatory and classroom together allows for a field course

Murray Green, Camrose Booster A wet summer has delayed the completion of the new Augustana classroom and observatory at Miquelon Lake.

here. We have had an astrophysics course, which has been more theoretical. This will add an observational part and experimental part to it,” said Dr. Gerhard Lotz, physics professor who is heading up the observatory portion of the project. “There have been remarkable discoveries based out of smaller student-based observatories, such as comets,” said Dr. Hood. “The huge telescopes in Hawaii and Peru often find discoveries, but the astronomers don’t have the time to seek out every one. They often rely of collaborations from others to collect the data. We could try to tie into some of those big research collaborations,” added Dr. Lotz. “It is a bit of a walk up, there is no elevator, but it will have a nice observation deck. You can get up to 10 people up there at a time,” informed Dr. Lotz. “I hope the computing science students can help us get the telescope up and running as well with analyzes.” The centre telescope is built separate from the observation deck and stairs, so it will not shake. In fact, the stand is made from cement and goes deep into the ground.

One day, he hopes to observe the telescope from his classroom in Camrose. “We have our technology learning services group working on it, to make WiFi access right to Augustana,” added Dr. Hood. Augustana staff will be able to offer new in-depth three-week courses for students, increase experiential learning opportunities, encourage senior level projects and support directed studies research initiatives across both the U of A and Augustana. “We will have more public engagements where we invite the public to listen to lectures,” added Dr. Hood. The parks staff are interested in increasing programming. In partnership with the Alberta Parks (Miquelon Lake Provincial Park) and Battle River School Division, a collaboration of outreach programming for school groups, adult education, tourists and lifelong learners – the facility will be a

benefit to the entire community. The station has hosted Grade 11 biology students from Bawlf and Grade 9 outdoor education students from Our Lady of Mount Pleasant last year, and the connection will continue to grow as groups from further away use the space as well. The U of A’s astronomy club has already visited the station twice this year to take advantage of the park’s Dark Sky Preserve. Miquelon Lake Provincial Park is a dark sky preserve, so it is an ideal place for an astronomical observatory, as there is minimal light pollution to hinder the excellent view of the night sky. This month, Dr. Glen Hvenegaard and Dr. Hood are teaching a course on research in environmental science and ecology where undergraduate students will live at the station, while investigating topics relevant to Miquelon Lake Provincial Park.

Since the installation of an All-sky Camera last fall, the station is now part of the 90-country Desert Fireball Network used to locate meteorites to study them. One such occurrence happened just recently, on Sept. 1. Augustana has a portable telescope with excellent optics and an equatorial motorized mount. It will be used to photograph night sky objects to share with the world. Another portable telescope, dubbed “Luther” to honour the heritage of Augustana, is handmade by two Augustana students as part of a directed study course. It is on an altazimuth mount and is not motorized, but it is simple to use for viewing the night sky. Future plans are to expand courses in astronomy to make use of the new observatory tower, domed telescope and portable telescope.

Murray Green, Camrose Booster University of Alberta Augustana Campus staff Glynnis Hood, Sydney Tancowny and Gerhard Lotz watched the beginning of construction back in late July.

RCMP investigate armed robbery By Murray Green

Killam RCMP responded to an armed robbery at the Hardisty Community Drug Mart on Sept. 3 at about 11:40 a.m. According to police, a female entered the building with a knife demanding pharmaceutical drugs. The suspect female is described to be heavyset around 200 to 220 pounds, between 5’6” and 5’8” in

height, with dark brown hair in a bun, wearing a dark green ball cap, a black hoodie, blue jeans and a pink face shield. Her skin was described as a medium complexion. She spoke with a thick English accent, while making demands. The suspect female fled the store on foot carrying a plastic grocery bag, but was not located by police. Killam RCMP are

At last count in 2013, the town was 75 per cent of the way to its goal. Preliminary results from a more recent count suggest the town is even closer, with its carbon footprint down by another 22 per cent. Four things they’ve learned: 1. Start with hope. The man who was inspired to convince the community to reduce its carbon footprint began by telling neighbours about a town in the UK who had reduced its carbon footprint. To his surprise, neighbours bought in. 2. Start small. Enthusiastic neighbours began by convincing others to switch to LED light bulbs. They started trading ideas about how to reduce household carbon footprint. 3. Build momentum. One couple was renovating, and decided to research green technology. Others caught on. A big jump came when the community hall was renovated. Its carbon footprint was reduced by 96 per cent and its need for purchased energy by 91 per cent – not only an environmental benefit, but a cost saving to the whole town. 4. Celebrate every improvement. One woman said, “This community celebrates everything – every little accomplishment, it doesn’t matter how small. And it celebrates together. It’s a wonderful way to live.” One day when I didn’t even know I was thinking about it, a thought flitted into my mind. I hesitate even to “say” it out loud, it’s so far-fetched. But here it is. What if every city, town and county or municipal district became...self-sufficient in food? Self-sufficient in energy? And had a zero environmental footprint? What if? When I began to imagine what would happen for the province and country and even world if every community took this on, my mind started reverberating. I began to think it’s possible to turn around the planetary damage that is not just looming, but already happening. Do I know how to make this happen? No. But I do know one thing. The starting point is, we have to decide.

asking the public’s assistance for any information in relation to this incident (or identifying the person responsible). Contact Killam RCMP at 780-3853509 or your local police. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-8477 (TIPS), online at www.P3Tips.com or by using the P3 Tips app.

Back in 1993, as a chain smoker from the age of 14, I was “planning” to quit smoking. I picked a specific date. In the weeks before that date, I asked everyone I knew who’d quit smoking how they did it. I heard lots of helpful techniques, but the most useful comment came from my brother. He said, “You’re not ready.” I acknowledged that might be accurate. Then he said, “You have to decide. That’s it. All the stuff about the patch, or cigarettes without nicotine – that’s just BS. You have to decide. And once you decide, that’s it. That’s how you quit.” He was right. And I did. So, we’re addicted to stuff that turns out to be bad for us, like cigarettes, which at one time had even medical doctors promoting them (really – I’ve seen the ads) and corporations trying to trash the evidence that smoking harms people’s health. Now we’re collectively addicted to stuff that turns out to be harmful to the planet that’s the only home our species has. Corporations and others are trying to trash the evidence that says we have a problem and we might have to change in ways that will likely cause discomfort or even pain while we adjust. We can’t count on governments or corporations to solve this. We have to decide. And we can more likely influence our own communities than impact governments or corporations. They will follow when they perceive it to be in their self-interest. ***

Like the little town of Eden Mills, once we decide, we will begin to figure out how, one step at a time. We can start small, build momentum and celebrate small and then larger successes. Wayne Gretzky famously said, “You miss 100 per cent of the shots you don’t take.” We have nothing to lose by deciding to give it a shot. ***

Bad plastic

By Arnold Malone

One of the great advantages of plastics is also the cause of its worst problem. Plastic is durable. It does not easily break down and so it exists far beyond its intended use. Moreover, many plastic items are used for only a few short minutes, such as shopping bags, takeout coffee lids and soda straws. When North America was first discovered, had those explorers arrived with plastic water bottles, those bottles would still be around today. It takes between 450 years to never for plastic to break down. Throwaway plastic ends up as garbage in our urban dumps and pollutes the oceans. Tossing out a soda straw may seem like an innocent act until we recognize that there are trillions upon trillions of them. In the Pacific Ocean, there are many plastic islands. The largest one is about halfway between Hawaii and California and it measures 1.6 million square kilometres. It is estimated that the collection of plastic in that gathering is 80,000 metric tons, representing 1.8 trillion pieces of plastic. Researchers indicate that these islands are rapidly expanding. Every year, eight billion kilos of plastic enter the oceans. Sunlight, wind, waves and heat break plastic into smaller and smaller bits. These tiny particles of plastic are mistaken for food by sea life and can be ingested. Nearly 700 species are negatively affected by plastic, including some endangered ones. Research is underway where tanks containing much higher concentrations of plastic particles are being studied for the longterm impact on marine life. Micro particles of plastic are so prevalent that they are even found in honey. Almost all of the ocean plastics enter the ocean from rivers. Fifteen of the 20 most plastic polluting rivers are in Asia; the worst is in Malaysia. Using nets to catch and collect plastic is not the answer. Nets cause entanglement for fish and other sea life and restrict water navigation. However, three young Dutch women have recently developed and perfected an amazing system for collecting plastic trash in rivers. It is called The Great Bubble Barrier. Whitewater kayak enthusiasts know how to ferry a river and will easily understand the concept of angling from one side of the river to the other. What these ladies did on Netherlands rivers was to lay a plastic pipe diagonally on the floor of the river. This pipe had rows of holes drilled on the top of the pipe and then forced air was pumped into one end. Plastic floating on the river met this angled row of vigorous bubbles and was directed to a catchment on the other side of the river. More than 80 per cent of the plastic was captured before entering the ocean. These Dutch researchers were able to collect 86,000 tons of plastic annually from a country that already has a superb collection and recycling program. They are hoping that this system will soon be adopted in Asia. This practise does not impair the movement of fish or ships. Norway, using high value deposits and well placed collection units, recovers 97 per cent of plastic bottles. The other good news is that plastics used for packaging can be forced by law to be recyclable or made of biodegradable plastic. Scooping up and hauling ocean plastics and controlling river movement of plastics is a secondary resort. The primary resort is all of us. We need to determine what families of plastics should be used on what products and, importantly, how we citizens manage plastic at the end of its useful life. Plastics are here to stay, but a great deal more needs to be done to control the types of plastics being used, along with new standards for managing the final use.

The 39th annual Terry Fox Run is a great activity for community members to stay in shape and raise funds for cancer research. Terry Fox Run organizer Anne McIntosh is hoping for a large turnout this year to support the worth while cause. The run (walk or ride) will take place at the Stoney Creek Centre beginning at 11 a.m. on Sept. 15. Registration starts at 10 a.m. and is held until minutes before start time. You can participate in either three, five or 10 kilometre distances. The run allows bicycles, roller blades and dogs. Anne was on the organizing committee in Camrose last year, but this is her first year as the run chair, taking over from long-time organizer Ingrid Urberg. “I remember my mom taking me and my siblings to the Terry Fox run in Edmonton when we were younger and how important it was to follow in the footsteps of Terry Fox. I was motivated to get more involved in organizing the run after losing my mother, Heather, to cancer last summer,” revealed Anne. Terry Fox Run pledge sheets may be obtained online at www.terryfox.org. Receipts will be issued by the Terry Fox Foundation for anyone who makes a donation of $20 or more. There is no registration fee and no charge for participating. In the past, Terry Fox Run in Camrose has attracted between 75 and 100 participates, depending on weather. “We would like more than 100 this year and that is our goal,” added Anne. The Terry Fox Run was initiated in 1980 when Terry Fox began his Marathon of Hope for cancer research. Beginning at the shore of the Atlantic in St. John’s on

April 12, Terry’s efforts won over Canadians from coast to coast. “We need your help. The people in cancer clinics all over the world need people who believe in miracles. I am not a dreamer and I am not saying that this will initiate any kind of definitive answer or cure to cancer. But, I believe in miracles. I have to,” said Terry Fox, in a letter to Canadians in 1979 prior to his Marathon of Hope. “The night before my amputation, my former basketball coach brought me a magazine with an article on an amputee who ran in the New York Marathon. It was then I decided to meet this new challenge head on and not only overcome my disability, but conquer it in such a way that I could never look back and say it disabled me. But I soon realized that would only be half my quest, for as I went through the 16 months of the physically and emotionally draining ordeal of chemotherapy, I was rudely awakened by the feelings that surrounded and coursed through the cancer clinic. There were faces with the brave smiles, and the ones who had given up smiling. There were feelings of hopeful denial, and the feelings of despair. My quest would not be a selfish one. I could not leave knowing these faces and feelings would still exist, even though I would be set free from mine. Somewhere the hurting must stop…and I was determined to take myself to the limit for this cause. From the beginning the going was extremely difficult, and I was facing chronic ailments foreign to runners with two legs in addition to the common physical strains felt by all dedicated athletes.

RCMP make arrests in Hay Lakes By Murray Green

Camrose RCMP received a complaint of an armed robbery that occurred at a Tempo gas station in Hay Lakes, Sept. 3. One male suspect wearing a balaclava demanding cash and cigarettes, robbed the gas station using bear spray stealing the cash register with an undisclosed amount of cash. A female store clerk was bear sprayed during the robbery. The suspect male left in a white diesel truck. Camrose, Wetaskiwin and Leduc RCMP members responded. The female store clerk was treated by EMS and transported to Camrose hospital with non life threatening injuries and received medical treatment. Camrose RCMP members were advised of a vehicle fire on Range Road 213, a short distance from Hay Lakes. They attended that location and a white Ford diesel truck was burning out of control. Witnesses advised a bald Caucasian male was observed in area operating the white truck being followed by an older model dark colored GMC half ton truck with another bald Caucasian male driving and an unknown passenger. RCMP air services assisted in the search, while Camrose Police Service assisted in locating the suspects inside the City of Camrose and all three suspects, two males and one female were arrested without incident. All three individuals are known to each other.

Nurses celebrate grad with pinning ceremony

This puppy is for me

My niece and nephew came to visit for a weekend this summer. We quickly noted how rapidly our 18-month-old nephew was moving around, so we cleared off the bottom half of the refrigerator, located and removed all marbles from the house and closed bedroom doors to block off small toys left on the loose. It turned out that it was great preparation for the puppy we adopted a few days later. It is surprising how much having a puppy is like having a toddler around; I am always checking what is in her mouth. I was hoping that finding a puppy to adopt would be a natural process, that a neighbour’s dog would have puppies or we would be driving in the country and see a sign saying “puppies to give away. Inquire within.” (I had actually started to look for signs like that.) But this wasn’t the case, so we made a list detailing ideas for how to find a puppy. Call local shelters. Call the pound. Ask our veterinarian. Look on the Internet. Ask anyone we know who has a dog. Go to parks and locate puppies; ask owners where they got their puppy. Yup, things were getting a bit desperate as the end of summer loomed. Then I chatted with my sister-in-law about our puppy search and later that day, she was searching for dogs on the computer as well, texting me photos of would-be new members of our family. One of these photos led to us visiting an animal shelter in the area. One particular fuzzball caught our eye, and we felt like we couldn’t possibly leave there without her. Soon we were back in town, picking up puppy food, a collar, leash, and yeah, we definitely needed some toys for her to chew. It turns out that people have a surprising reaction when they hear that you have adopted a pet from an animal shelter. Even though our puppy does not appear to have been neglected or mistreated, people say “Nice!” or “That is so great” on learning where she came from. This sort of makes me feel like they think we have been rescuing street urchins or somehow contributing to making the world a better place for all; we just wanted a puppy. The next morning, I watched some videos and began daily training sessions. I was worried that it would be hard to choose a name, with children involved. There must be enough pets named Fluffy in the world already (no offence to pets named Fluffy). But she had some dark colouring on her face and throat, which my husband thought looked like a Shadow. And then the kids pointed out that she had been following us around, well, like a Shadow. And that was it. My husband rented some equipment, purchased materials and spent two days creating an outdoor enclosure where she can still play in the grass, but be safe from coyotes when we go to town. We placed her inside, closed the gate and as we walked toward the house, my daughter said our puppy had gotten her head and paw out of the square mesh. Hmmm. We watched from the house as she proceeded to pop her head and two front legs out, and then kicked and wiggled until her back legs were out as well. I guess that can be her space…when she is bigger and can’t fit through the holes. Then school was fast approaching. My children went for a sleep-over at my parents’ house and my husband had been called out to work, so I made applesauce. The house was unnaturally quiet. I had a little the-summer-isending and I’m-really-going-to-miss-my-kids cry, while burrowing my face into our puppy’s fur. Dogs can be so understanding. Then it dawned on me that this whole time I had been picturing the excitement on the kids’ faces when we brought home a puppy, the fun they would have playing together. I was imagining that this new addition was for them, but no, it turns out that this puppy is for me too.

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Faculty of nursing instructor Sandra Carless presents a reward to graduates during the pinning ceremony. By Murray Green

The University of Alberta Faculty of Nursing After-Degree Program held a pinning ceremony for 15 nursing graduates from the Camrose site, at the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre on Aug. 13. All of the graduates either relocated or commuted to Camrose for this twoyear intensive program. “We are infinitely proud of you and wish you a future of success. We know you are going to do great things because you already have. Nursing is more than the pin you are going to receive today. It is a symbol of everything you have to look forward to in the future,” said Christy Raymond, associate dean of undergraduate programs. The after-degree nursing program started in 2006. “I decided to talk to my sister, who’s pinning ceremony I attended 47 years ago. And she is still nursing. Based on her

advice, I encourage you to always remember why you chose nursing as a profession. After 47 years, what keeps her going, is the feeling of joy she still gets in helping and caring for the person behind the patient,” said Kim Misfeldt, vice dean, Augustana Campus. A pinning ceremony is a symbolic welcoming of newly graduated nurses into the nursing profession. The new nurses are presented with nursing pins by the faculty of the nursing school, but more often, a loved one chosen by the graduate. The nurses recited the Nightingale Pledge based on the 1873 original pledge after the ceremony. The graduates were Ma Mae-Beth Acain, Melissa Altin, Jocelyn Bamford, Ryan Bell, Andrea Cunningham, Ijeoma Ezekeke, Michelle Gomke, Jenny Kisac, Jesse Lang, Paige Lucas, Bhumiben Patel, Erin Schram, Jennifer Voegtlin, Sandra Williamson and Ashley Wilton.

“All of us strangers became a support system for one another. We shared the load of nursing school together. Companionship and compassion filled the classroom. We were told that we wouldn’t be leaving nursing school the same as we came into it. That is true. We have all been changed by the experiences, but for the best,” said student Ezekeke. “We have a bright future ahead of us. We have gained knowledge through nursing school to allow our trees (foundation) to grow taller and stronger. We have grown and will become leaders in the places we go to,” added student Bamford. “By being a nurse, we are helping the community. By helping one person, we are making a big difference. Behind us are memories, beside us are friends and before us are dreams,” said student Patel.

We may give tours or have demonstrations,” explained Karen. “We are going to have a contest called Name the Dinosaur where people have to name staff from pictures taken 20 or more years ago. We have quite a few staff who worked at the old hospital. I remember carrying over supplies to the new hospital. Where the helipad is now was about the entrance of the old hospital,” shared Karen. Previous staff, board members and guests will be invited to attend the celebration. The hospital mascot, a teddy bear, will have its named revealed at the event. “We want people to see what St. Mary’s does and celebrate both the 95 and 30 years of milestones,” said Karen. In 1920, Father M. J. Schnitzler, the first resident priest in Camrose, with the support of Dr. Nordbye, a leading physician, proposed to the town council the establishment of a hospital that would be managed by a congregation of women. Their proposal was adopted and Father Schnitzler was appointed to negotiate for religious sisters and he applied to the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul in Kingston for their help. It wasn’t until 1923, during the time of his successor, father P. Harrington, that negotiations were completed. The hospital was officially opened on Oct. 24, 1924. In 1923, St. Mary’s Hospital Camrose received full approval by the College of Physicians and Surgeons and maintained this status until 1945, when it was lost due to the depletion of doctors required for the war effort.

Covenant Health St. Mary’s Hospital Camrose will be celebrating 95 years of community service and 30 years from the current facility on Friday, Sept. 27 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. A grand opening was held on June 23, 1989 beside the old hospital that featured wings built in 1924, 1949 and 1969. “Even though the building is now 30 years old, I still consider this the new hospital. I worked in the old hospital and then moved over to the new hospital. In the grand scheme of things, this hospital has served the community well,” said Karen Burton, one of the organizers from Team Collaboration at St. Mary’s. “We are the hub of so many things. We call this building Reuben because is both rural and urban based. We tell our new hires that if they can work at St. Mary’s, you can work anywhere because you learn both rural and urban situations,” said Karen. The community is invited for a barbecue in front of the building. “We are going to set up a tent in the far visitors’ parking lot for a free community event with a barbecue, cake and have community leaders out there greeting and talking with people,” said Kendra Ferguson, volunteer and foundation coordinator. “We have reached out to STARS and the stroke ambulance to see if they would be willing to give tours that day or display ambulances that day. It is possible they can’t make it because of what is happening on that day,” added Kendra. “We want to set up a table with archives of information on the history of the

Infant nutrition classes offered By Murray Green

Local parents who have questions about feeding their growing baby, have access to a free infant nutrition class offered by Alberta Health Services (AHS). Led by a registered dietitian, the two-hour workshop highlights why babies need to start on iron-rich foods at six months, how to start introducing solid foods and why progressing to different food textures is important. Parents are encouraged to bring babies to the class, which focuses on creating a positive feeding relationship. Infant nutrition classes are now offered in 29 communities across AHS Central Zone. AHS dietitians answer questions and show parents how to make their own baby food using a variety of kitchen tools they may already have at home. Parents learn how to prepare vegetables, fruit, meat and meat alternatives using a number of different tools, including hand mixers, food mills and food processors. The class ends with a taste test to compare storebought baby foods, and homemade baby foods for taste and texture. Infant nutrition classes will be offered in Camrose on Sept. 12 and Nov. 21 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Camrose Community Health Centre, 5510-46 Avenue. For more information and to register, call 780-679-2980.

Jardine leads Kodiaks into battle this season By Murray Green

Camrose Kodiaks coach Clayton Jardine will lead the team into the 201920 Alberta Junior Hockey League season after taking over from long-time leader Boris Rybalka. “It’s been fun and I’m learning by fire, which has been positive. I’m teaching a couple of new systems, but for the most part it is the message that we are going to be the hardest working team in the league,” said an excited Clayton. “I spent four special years here where I went from a boy to a man. It is a dream come true to return as coach and it is nice to see familiar faces around town as well,” he added. “The biggest thing is the dream and get back here. It took a couple years to work it out, finish my masters and I coached in Kindersley. You look at the facilities, sponsorship and volunteers, its top five in Canada. I know because I’ve been to most of the rinks in Canada when I scouted in Division 3,” said Clayton. “I enjoyed the experience in Kindersley, but the volunteers weren’t there. I was coach and general manager, so it was a lot of learning. It seemed there was so much to do that the last thing was coaching. It is a lot of work for one person and here I have Boris to help and I can concentrate on coaching.” General manager Rybalka will be assisting on the ice, as well as asso-

ciate coaches Richard Petiot, Brad Huolt, Doug Fleck and Allen York. “You can’t hope for a better guy to learn from than Boris. I learned a lot as a player and now coaching and I’ll use his knowledge over time. Assistant coaches approached Boris to help me. It is great to have former Kodiaks and Camrose people helping with coaching. They understand the community and the organization. They have a lot of experience. We are all young and want players to get to the next level. We are all passionate about it.” Clayton has high expectations for the team this year. “We will lean on our experienced players. We have five 20-year-olds and we have three players that just played at a very high level in Russia, so we have a lot of good players that can step up,” said coach. “We have a lot of hard working players, but most of all they have heart and we saw that in the last exhibition game against Drayton Valley where they came back. We have the goalie and defence and our hard working forwards. We want other teams to think about the Kodiaks when we come to their town. It won’t be an easy game.” The team is expected to get down to 24 players by today. When asked about other teams outshooting the Kodiaks, he had this to say, “It is a case of the players learning the systems

To maintain and improve the City’s water quality. To improve water flow and pressure in the water distribution system. To reduce bacterial growth, restore disinfectant residual, and improve water colour. Unidirectional Flushing uses 40% less water than traditional flushing programs due to increased water velocity. 5. In addition to scouring the water pipes, the UDF Program also gives the City the opportunity to check, exercise, and maintain all water valves and hydrants. This year’s UDF program began July 25, 2019, starting with Zone A (in Area 2) and will continue for 2-3 months. Water service should not be disrupted during the flushing process. There may be a slight drop in pressure or a presence of discolouration in the water from the minerals and sediments being flushed from the pipes. If a discolouration is noticed, please turn the tap off for 15 minutes and flush from your bathtub tap until the water is clear. If there are any questions or concerns in regards to the Unidirectional Flushing Program please feel free to contact Emily Baum at the City of Camrose Engineering Department at 780-672-4428.

Good-bye and thank you

Old time harvesting in Round Hill

By Kevin Sorenson, MP, Battle River-Crowfoot

It is with a very heavy heart that I write the last column of my 19-year career as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Battle River-Crowfoot. Since first being elected in 2000, I have been submitting my bi-weekly column to all local weekly newspapers. I am extremely grateful to those papers who consistently ran the column, which allowed me to regularly connect with my constituents. I thank each of you for giving me the opportunity to circulate important information and provide critiques on government legislation and polices, the economic well-being of the country or international affairs. I have endeavoured to continually provide timely facts and figures, which I believe is crucial for constituents be informed about the state of federal affairs. Early on in my Parliamentary career, I learned that I needed to reach out to constituents through various means and as often as possible. While nothing can replace the importance and pleasure of meeting with constituents in person at community events or in my constituency office; columns, quarterly Reports from Parliament, letters, emails, telephone calls, and in later years, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter postings, have led to a vital exchange of ideas and information between the residents of Battle River-Crowfoot and me. Without that dialogue, I could not have adequately represented the views of my constituents in Ottawa which is the most important part of being an MP in a democratic country such as Canada. To the best of my ability, I ensured this constituency’s voice was heard in the nation’s capital. In some cases, the views of Battle River-Crowfoot residents were at odds with other parts of the country. While this was not surprising, it was rather alarming that those views were not always respected. I have always fully recognized and respected the fact that there is always going to be divergent views on a multitude of issues. And, I have appreciated that others are every bit as passionate as I in defending their position. I however, unlike members of the Liberal government, have never chastised anyone for stating their beliefs as I also respect our Constitutional right to Freedom of Speech (and thought). In the wake of one Liberal minister’s recent public rebuke of a point of view on an issue of importance to many people, I received an overwhelming number of letters, emails and phone calls. One constituent wrote, “coming under attack for such beliefs shows that the Liberal government does not believe in true free speech, but instead a freedom of speech where you can believe and say what you like, as long as it corresponds with Liberal policies and mindsets.” As I say good-bye and thank you for the honour of representing you for close to two decades, I leave you with the most important lesson I have learned: you may disagree with another’s position or point of view; you may passionately debate the merits of your point of view; but at the end of the argument, you should always respect the other person. This is a very big and diverse country where everyone is entitled to their opinions and they are entitled to state their position without fear of reprisal or condemnation. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this or previous columns you may write me at 4945-50th Street, Camrose, Alberta, T4V 1P9, call 780-608-4600, toll-free 1-800-665-4358, fax 780-608-4603 or e-mail Kevin.Sorenson.c1@parl.gc.ca.

Murray Green, Camrose Booster The community of Round Hill held a threshing day on Sept. 1 to honour memories of old time threshing days and to show youngsters how harvest was completed years ago. Ken Wancho is on the binder and Cody Nahirniak is driving the tractor during a stooking demonstration.

Sedgewick school classes to begin this week By Murray Green

The Central High Sedgewick Public School (CHSPS) opened on Sept. 3 for high school students. Elementary and junior high students should start school on Wednesday, Sept. 11. The Aug. 14 fire on the roof caused smoke and water damage to the Bat-

tle River School Division’s school. Camp Sedgewick is progressing well. “All the units we need are now on-site. Crews are working to move desks, chairs and learning resources into each unit. Power and heat will soon be hooked up. Staff was able to access Camp Sedgewick starting on Monday, so they could

organize their classroom spaces,” said principal William Klassen. “We are required to have a complete site inspection before the Camp can open. A provincial inspector will be coming from Red Deer to do this on the morning of Tuesday, Sept. 10. We will not receive his report until later that day. We cannot confirm that we

will be good to go until we receive this approval.” The school office is currently located at the Recreation Centre, in the lobby of the curling rink/bowling alley. If you have questions or concerns, do not hesitate to be in touch with us wklassen@brsd.ab.ca or kenelson@brsd.ab.ca.

D’orjay brings life to gospel music By Murray Green

The Fox and Fable Book and Game Cafe will be hosting a Gospel Brunch featuring the music of D’orjay the Singing Shaman at 11 a.m. on Sept. 28. She is like turning on a tap of inspiration and possibility. D’orjay is a current Edmontonian and a former Camrosian with deep hometown ties to Irma. She gave up her lucrative job in the oil and gas industry to be a shaman. It opened her up to breaking free of her own self doubt.

She grew up loving the gospel music to which her grandmother and stepmother introduced her. It’s really about singing with intention, whether it be of religious content or just a song that really speaks to where you are in life. “My show is family friendly, kids love it. I think people miss singing together and so when they attend the Gospel Brunch, it is really community building,” she said. “We sing some traditional gospel, old country

The Camrose Kodiaks and the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre will host another Kodiaks Family Movie Matinee and Barbecue on Sunday, September 15. The barbecue will begin at 12:30 p.m. and the movie starts at 2 p.m. The family movie Secret Life of Pets 2 is free admission, but you have to receive a ticket at the Lougheed Centre in advance of the show. Sometime after the events of the first film, Max and Duke’s owner, Katie, gets married to a guy named Chuck and has a son Liam whom Max disapproves of at first, due to his rough play, but eventually softens up to him. Later, Max’s overprotective feelings for Liam develop into an itch, which prompts Katie to get him a dog cone from the veterinarian in an effort to lower his symptoms. Max’s luck changes when Duke reveals that the family is going on a road trip outside of the city. When Max and Duke’s family reaches a farm owned by Chuck’s uncle, Max grows unaccustomed to the farm’s ways, including local sheepdog Rooster. After an incident with the farm’s sheep, Rooster takes Max out to find one of the missing sheep that ran away. Rooster’s teaching and encouragement to Max about acting unafraid prompts Max to successfully retrieve the sheep. Rooster allows Max to stay with him overnight as a result. Before departure, Rooster also gives Max one of his handkerchiefs as a souvenir. Catch the movie for the rest of the details. and mostly I gospelfy popular songs that so many people connect with. As a shaman, I do open the brunch with affirmations that opens the event in a very intentional and beautiful way. I am really looking forward to returning to Camrose and sharing my music and passion with the community.”

Rybalka, Team AJHL outworked European hockey opponents By Murray Green

When the final siren sounded the record books showed that Russia defeated Team AJHL 3-0 in the gold/silver match of the Junior Club World Cup in Sochi (Russia). What the scoresheet won’t tell you is how terrified the European teams were at facing the underdog Canadians from Alberta in all of the games at the tournament. “The European teams had all of the talent and by rights we shouldn’t have won a game. But our team had something the other teams didn’t and that was heart. I’m really proud of our players because they gave it their all and never quit. Winning the silver was like winning the gold,” said Boris Rybalka, who co-coached the team with Rick Swan. Goalie Vladislav Okoryak turned aside all 31 shots he faced, while Grigory Denisenko tallied twice, to help lead Yaroslavl Loko to a 3-0 victory over Team AJHL in the championship game on Sept. 7. The Russian squad had eight high National Hockey League draft picks on their roster and projected three more in the first round of the next draft. “Albertans have one thing most Europeans don’t have and that is a heart and a soul that never quits.” It took all of half a second for Boris to agree to coach in Russia to complete a coaching chapter for him. “It was an honour and quite the ride. It was perfect timing. We were getting Clayton Jardine in place to coach. After 26 years of coaching, I wanted someone in place to take over so I can concentrate

on being the general manager. The nice thing was hand picking the coaches for the transition. Then the league phoned me about coaching. We had eight days to get the team picked and ready. We had to have passports in place and the players approved by the Russian tournament.” The coaching staff, that also included commissioner Ryan Bartoshyk went with only 22 players so everyone could play in all of the games. “We picked the players over the phone and watching videos. We knew they had talent, but we didn’t know how much until we landed in Russia. This hockey was at the highest level that I have seen as a coach. I knew if we tried to compete with their speed and skill we wouldn’t win. We (coaches) went with something we believed they didn’t have— heart. I give 100 per cent credit to the players. They could have said screw this, we can compete with their speed and skill. The Russian media was in shock. They couldn’t believe an Albertan team of players that haven’t played together could play that well against club teams.” Team AJHL not only surprised teams by advancing to the semifinals, they beat a heavilyfavoured Finland team. They had five or six players drafted by the NHL as well. They have three projected first-rounders this year and we beat them 5-1. I heard commentators say this was supposed to be a Finland-Russia final. The American coach said it will be a Finland-Russia final, so we played his comments to our players in the dressing room before the game. I

Lefsrud honours his uncle’s 1964 Mercury Marauder By Murray Green

David Lefsrud of Viking owns a 1964 Mercury Marauder in honour of his uncle. “I’ve had this car for more than 30 years. I got it from my uncle, who passed away. I have had the car since 1983 and it has only 56,000 original miles on it,” explained David. “I got the car when I was 15 years old. I remember sitting in my uncle’s garage and he had two of these cars. The other one was a silver anniversary edition. After I received it, it sat in the shed for a number of years.” The Mercury Marauder is an automobile nameplate that was used by three distinct full-size cars produced by the Mercury division of Ford Motor Company. The car holds a lot of memories for the owner. “It means a lot to me, because he kind of took me under his wing and mentored me a bit when I was growing up. He (Ivor) passed away early in life. He and my dad (Norman) had a garage dealership in Viking which was the Ford-Mercury and Massey farm implement dealership. Back then the car and farm implements dealers were together,” said David. “The only thing I’ve ever done to the car is take the engine out and have it resealed. The same with

the transmission. I made a few of the usual adjustments, such as brakes. It has never been painted again,” shared David. “This car is all original.

FUN FACTS

The Marauder name made its first appearance in 1958 as Ford introduced a new family of V8 engines for its Mercury, Edsel, and Lincoln brands. Exclusive to Mercury was a 383 cubic inch (6.3 L) V8 engine. Dubbed Marauder, it produced 330 hp (246 kW; 335 PS) with an optional four-barrel carburetor. Exclusive to Mercury, a Super Marauder triple two-barrel carburetor became the first mass-produced engine sold in the United States with an advertised 400 hp (298 kW; 406 PS) output; the option was available on all Mercury vehicles. For the first time for a mid-year introduction, the Marauder was introduced as a “1963½” model (as was an entire line of new, sports models from Ford in many of the existing series). All 1963½ Marauders were two-door hardtops. In sharp contrast to the distinctive reverse-slant Breezeway roofline option, the Marauder hardtop coupe was styled with a sloping notchback rear roofline; matching the same roofline that was introduced at the same time on the contemporary Galaxies. This roofline was optimized to make the large sedan more competitive for stock car racing. Along with the sportier roofline, the Marauder trim package included bucket seats and central console.

It has never been touched. It was originally bought at Webb’s in Vermilion. I still have the manual and first registration in the glove box. It still has a tag on the door from the last time Webb’s changed oil on it. You can see a little bit of rust on the passenger side, but it has been like that for years.” The Marauder has a 352 engine with a three speed C4 transmission in it. Deriving its name from the most powerful engines available to the Mercury line, the Marauder was marketed as the highestperformance version of the full-size product range. “I used it as a wedding car 25 years ago, so it has those special memories as well. Since then I didn’t drive it very often. I just started going to car shows now that I fixed up a truck as well. I have teenaged boys, so they are encouraging me to go to a few car shows to show the vehicles.

Other than the car shows, it hasn’t been out of the garage very much. During its first production run, the Mercury Marauder was a trim

option on standard Mercury coupes; the equivalent of the Ford Galaxie 500 and 500/XL, the Marauder was given a fastback rear roofline.

Walk to cure kidney disease next Sunday By Lori Larsen

On Sept. 15, join others in the walk to help find a cure and show your support for those suffering from kidney disease and those caring for them. The Kidney walk will begin with pledge drop off and registration at 11 a.m., followed by a personal story from Camrose honourary chair Wayne Throndson and a warmup from noon until 12:30 p.m. The 10 kilometre run will begin at 12:50 p.m., followed by those wishing to run the two or five kilometre run at 1 p.m. Wayne himself does not have kidney disease; however, the effects of the disease have had an impact on his life. He will be sharing his own family journey with kidney disease that began 16 years ago, which has inspired him to increase awareness and encourage others to support the cause. Currently, one in 10 Canadians is affected by kidney disease. Those who are battling end-stage kidney failure require dialysis waiting for a kidney transplant and a second chance at life.

RONA returns hero campaign for CAFCL By Murray Green

Lowe’s Canada is returning its heroes campaign. Every Lowe’s, RONA and Reno-Depot corporate store in the country has chosen to support the mission or a project of a local non-profit organization or public school–a hero in its community. RONA Camrose employees chose the Camrose Association for Community Living as their hero organization. “Through the Heroes campaign, we are thrilled to support organizations that make a real difference in the communities where we operate. We are committed to helping build stronger communities and taking concrete steps to improve the lives

of those around us,” said Jean-Sébastien Lamoureux, senior vice president at Lowe’s Canada. “The strength of this campaign lies in our employees’ high level of engagement to the local cause they have chosen themselves. Some of them will also volunteer their time by helping their partner organization carry out a specific, inspiring project.” From Sept. 1 to 30, customers from the Camrose region will be invited to make a donation, at checkout, to support the Camrose Association for Community Living. Lowe’s Canada will match 50 per cent of all customer donations up to $2,000 per store.

Eleanor Bertha (Tobin) Badry With love in our hearts, the family of Eleanor Bertha (Tobin) Badry wishes to announce the passing of our wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Ellen passed away on August 29, 2019 in Edmonton at the age of 85. Ellen was born on September 20, 1933 in her grandmother’s home in Paradise Hill, Saskatchewan. She was the only girl in the family of six children. Ellen was formally trained in Admitting and Transcription. After finishing school and working a short time in Maidstone, Saskatchewan, she left the family farm in Paynton, Saskatchewan to work in Edmonton. She lived with her brother Edward and his wife Josephine and took a job working at the reception desk in the Misericordia Hospital. It was there that she met the love of her life, Girvin, a handsome young man who worked in the greenhouse and made floral deliveries for Tyler’s Flowers. They were married in December 1954. Ellen was a devoted wife and mother. Together with Girvin, they raised seven children. The family has fond memories of many family camping trips during the summer months. When Ellen had the opportunity, she took on various part time work including housekeeping at the Royal Alexandra Hospital and served up food at the local Burger King. She valued her relationships with her many friends, neighbours and relatives, and loved arts and crafts. She is missed by her husband Girvin; and her children Randy (Bev), Dwayne (Kim), Sherry-Anne, Terry-Lynn (Tony), Wanda (Gerald), Wendy (Brian) and Steven; her 14 grandchildren; and her 14 great-grandchildren.

Helpful Tips for Writing Classified Ads Which Get Results! Be Thorough

Sure you want your ad to stand out from the rest, but don’t skimp on the sort of information that sells. The item’s condition, size, age, brand name, and colour are some of the basics readers want to know. Without them, your ad may be overlooked.

Steer Clear of Abbreviations

Okay, so you want to include all the important basics. Don’t use strange abbreviations because our ads are designed to spell all the important details. Besides, you are not paying by the line, but by the word, so there is really no need to abbreviate.

Be Honest

Exaggerating your item’s finer points may bring in a lot of responses, but a buyer who’s misled won’t appreciate it and will take his business somewhere else.

State Your Price

The cost of an item is one of the most important concerns of want ad readers. Ads showing prices are ones which get results. Giving a price also serves to “weed out” those buyers not in your price range.

Be Accessible

Including a telephone number or address puts you in touch with potential buyers. Be sure to state the hours you can be reached: a caller who can’t get through the first time often won’t call again.

Don’t hesitate to call us with any questions or problems you may have regarding advertising. Our professionally trained sales staff know the ropes, and would be happy to pass their know-how on to you. That’s why we’re here to help you get the results you deserve.

Breakfast Club of Canada has several programs in Camrose and within the Battle River School Division. With the new school year beginning, the Breakfast Club of Canada is preparing to re-open breakfast programs for students in need and is asking Albertans for help in contributing to the over 151 programs that will welcome more than 11,200 children daily this September, some of which are in the Camrose area. With 16.1 per cent of children living in poverty in Alberta, these children are at greater risk of going hungry every day before school. With 24 more programs opening in Alberta this year, the Breakfast Club of Canada is working to fundraise across the province and create awareness to ensure no child is left hungry during their studies. Partner stores such as Walmart are accepting donations to assist in the fundraising efforts for the club and every dollar goes towards a healthy and hearty breakfast for students to start their day. Walmart will be accepting donations from Sept. 12 to Oct. 4 at all 408 locations across Canada. Donations are also accepted through the Breakfast Club website www.breakfastclubcanada. org.
