Girls' Weekend The Kelsey Drama Club returns to the stage with another madcap, lightning-quick farce performed by a talented group of dedicated, local actors. This time, the Club will bring playwright Karen Schaeffer’s hilarious Girls' Weekend to the Bailey Theatre from October 10 to 19. The play sets out to highlight four book club members relaxing and discussing the club’s latest recommended reading at Dot Northwood’s cabin. However, somehow three cases of wine preclude good judgement and precipitate more stewing than reviewing.

Hauntings • Possessions • Exorcisms Engaging in Jesus’s Healing Ministry for Today It’s the Halloween season – a time for little kids to dress up (older ones too) and get some candy! It’s just a day to have some harmless fun. There is another side to consider… Have anxiety/depression the doctors can’t help with? Hearing voices? Past traumatic events you can’t shake? Unrealistic fears? Always accident prone? Can’t seem to break that addiction? Haunted houses real? Do some places in your home or work just creep you out? Your child or pet stares at nothing? Things disappear and then re-appear? What’s with all the ghost/hauntings, witchcraft and satanic TV shows? Harry Potter? Lucifer? Are kids dabbling in witchcraft with all this media attention? Are ghosts real? Did FOX News really report to the U.S. government that UFOs are real? What are they? Since God is real, why is there so much evil in society? Eg: mass shootings, ISIS, continual war. What happened to common sense? Is there really a satan and a host of demons running the show? One World Order? Where is the Christian Church in all of this? Seems awfully quiet. What happened? There is a good set of morals to follow from the church in the past. Their influence is weak now. Is healing and deliverance (Exorcism) real? Can Christians pray in the name of Jesus and can people be healed and delivered from evil forces? Or, are those TV evangelists just scam artists. They seem to be always asking for money. The Bible, just a bunch of guys writing long-past stories, or is it the True Word of God? How does Jesus fit into this? It says in the bible that Jesus’s followers were to carry forth doing his work preaching, teaching, healing and deliverance. Hmmm… something missing. The near perfect crime.

Nelson runs with national Green Party in election By Murray Green

The Green Party of Canada is serious about action on climate change. Former University of Alberta Augustana Campus student and intern contract student services coordinator Geordie Nelson wants Canadians to learn and take action on climate change before it is too late. “The answer is simple, but not easy. Change is required through innovation and creativity. We need buildings to be energy efficient, transition to renewable energy such as solar power. Alberta has a high capacity for solar power (plenty of sunshine) and wind energy as well as oil and gas to tap into. We can increase public transportation and reduce concessions to fossil fuel companies.” Nelson came from a family that discussed the topics of the day. “Talking politics was normal growing up in my family. I’ve been involved with the Green Party since the new ridings were formed in 2015 and I was one of the founding members. I helped with the financial end of it and now it is

a progression to being a candidate,” said Nelson. “I know we live in a conservative riding, but I believe in the democratic process and getting everyone involved. For me, that means running. I care a lot about environmental issues and the Green Party believes in a balanced budget,” shared Nelson. “It is important that we address the climate emergency and the crisis we are facing. The Green Party is the best party to address those issues and I’m campaigning for a transition to a greener economy. We are all in this together, so we all need to work together.” The Green Party doesn’t want to see job losses, so they are promoting a collaborative effect in facing today’s concerns. “In the Green Party we are free to vote the way the constituency residents want. There could be regional differences, so we have that freedom of voting as MPs,” shared Nelson. “If someone has a good idea, then we will try to implement that, regardless of which party came up with the idea. What matters is that it benefits Canadians.”

The current Canadian government has no intension of balancing the budget. That doesn’t sit well with Nelson. “It will require more spending at first, but then relax over the next five years. We would move towards balancing the budget by increasing taxes, but not

Geordie Nelson

increasing your taxes,” explained Nelson. “It is about closing tax loopholes. For CEOs that have stock options and capital gains, it means taxing their assets that are not annual income. Some US companies do a lot of business in Can-

ada, but don’t pay taxes. They should pay taxes if they are doing business in Canada. We want to look at the business side for closing tax loopholes.” He feels the health care system can examine more preventable problems, to look at problems before they occur. “The Green Party has their own pharmacare plan to offer drugs that Canadians need. It is for people who spend $5 a day on medications and we want to avoid things that turn into chronic issues later in life. We believe in paying a little in the beginning, rather than a lot in the end. We have to review the process on how the provinces receive that money that is based on the needs of the province. For example, some provinces may need more senior care than others.” Nelson wants to reinvest in forestry and have a natural forest plan. “We need both a national forestry and water plan because we currently don’t have one.” Nelson is tired of politicians who promise things, but never deliver. “With the collaborative approach and be open to

hearing everyone’s perspectives. For a lot of farmers, the trade dispute has greatly affected them. We are largely an export country, so when a deal goes south like with canola that impacts a lot of producers. I don’t think Justin Trudeau is the best advocate for Canada. We need someone to work and advocate for Canadians.” The divide between urban and rural Canada is increasing. “Most people live in an urban setting so we are seeing a drop in rural funding over the past few years and that is a big issue. It is important to advocate for rural infrastructure. They need high speed Internet to keep up to everyone else and be competitive with the rest of the world.” To help make your decision, Battle RiverCrowfoot All Candidates Forums have been set for Tuesday, Oct. 8 in Camrose at 6:30 p.m. in the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre and Wednesday, Oct. 16 at 7 p.m. in the New Sarepta Community High School.

Look for ways to lower your stress By Murray Green

Every day can be stressful, especially at work. Stress is a fact of life for most people. You may not be able to get rid of stress, but you can look for ways to lower it. Learn different ways to manage your time. You may get more done with less stress if you make a schedule. Think about which things are most important and do those first. Find healthy ways to cope. Look at how you have been dealing with stress. Be honest about what works and what does not. Think about other things that might work better. Take good care of your-

self. Get plenty of rest. Eat well. Don’t smoke. Limit how much alcohol you drink. Try new ways of thinking. When you find yourself starting to worry, try to stop the thoughts. Or write down your worries and work on letting go of things you cannot change. You have to learn to say no. Speak up. Not being able to talk about your needs and concerns creates stress and can make negative feelings worse. Assertive communication can help you express how you feel in a thoughtful, tactful way. Ask for help. People who have a strong network

of family and friends manage stress better. Sometimes stress is just too much to handle alone. Talking to a friend or family member may help, but you may also want to see a counsellor. Call Health Link at 811 if you need help. You will feel better if you can find ways to get stress out of your system. The best ways to relieve stress are different for each person. Regular exercise is one of the best ways to manage stress. Walking is a great way to get started. It can help to write about the things that are bothering you.

Thankful for being thankful five times

“Oh no, she’s going to ask us, isn’t she?” In past years at family Thanksgiving gatherings, I’ve had the practice of asking family members what they are thankful for. I’ve loved hearing the responses. From a pre-teen: “I’m thankful for the Internet.” From a mom with a baby and a toddler: “I’m grateful my husband’s employer makes it possible for me to be at home.” I knew my delight in this “thankful” activity was not shared by all family members. I didn’t miss the eye rolls. However, one of the gifts of being over 70 is that eye rolls no longer affect me. I’m willing to annoy people if I think it’s for a good cause. Sometimes even if it’s not a good cause! I’m thankful for this freeing development I would not have predicted in my younger years when “What will people think?” was a dominant question. Spoiler alert for any of my descendants who happen to be reading this: At our Thanksgiving gathering, I’m going to ask “What are you thankful for?” Let the eye rolls begin! Here’s the good cause. Being thankful improves how our brain functions. ***

I’ve been reading articles that summarize the results of scientific studies about how being thankful, gratitude, impacts our brains and therefore our lives. Here are snippets. 1. Gratitude is good for our brains. The brain’s hypothalamus regulates bodily functions like our appetite, sleep, temperature, metabolism and growth. Studies show that our hypothalamus is activated when we feel grateful or do or see acts of kindness. Gratitude is addictive in a good way! Feeling grateful floods our brain with feel-good chemicals like dopamine. We’re motivated to feel it again so we choose to be thankful again, a virtuous cycle. These effects on our brain open the doors to many other health benefits including… 2. Gratitude improves physical health. Physical impacts of being thankful include fewer aches and pains, reducing pain levels, better sleep, and increased energy and vitality. Perhaps not surprisingly, grateful people are more likely to practice healthy activities, eat better, and seek treatment for health concerns, which helps them live longer and healthier. 3. Gratitude improves psychological health. Gratitude reduces toxic emotions, from envy and resentment to frustration and regret. Robert Emmons, a leading gratitude researcher, has conducted multiple studies on the link between gratitude and well-being. His research confirms that gratitude increases happiness and reduces depression. 4. Gratitude boosts your confidence and self-esteem. Gratitude allows you to reflect on your achievements, the people in your life who are important to you, and the blessings you experience in your life every day. Being grateful for your abilities, skills, interests and aptitudes boosts your feelings of self-worth and stokes your confidence. The practice of gratitude is a great replacement for the bad habit of focusing on past failures and setbacks. If you notice negative thinking, use it as a trigger to remind you to focus on gratitude instead. 5. Gratitude fosters resilience and helps us deal with tough times. When you are grateful for what you have, you are better able to overcome negative events in your life. You don’t view your life as a “glass half empty,” but you recognize that despite bad things happening, you will survive and even thrive. Gratefulness was shown to be a critical factor in preventing post-traumatic stress response among people impacted by traumatic events such as 9/11. With gratitude practice, you build your inner coping muscle. That allows you to manage life challenges with less emotional trauma. In this season when many of us are feeling grumpy or anxious about things in the external world, a few minutes thinking of things to be thankful for could be a helpful antidote. We can’t necessarily change the external world, but we can choose to spend a few minutes mentally giving thanks. It’s free, it’s easy and it could make for a better day.

Over the past year a 16-year-old girl has inspired us. Why? The answer is that the generations that get to vote can’t see the danger our world is in, or they won’t look. Our children and grandchildren, whose un-blinkered eyes can see the obvious, are frightened. They know that if we continue the trajectory of unbridled growth the world of their parents is doomed, and any hope for a safe future for them is disappearing rapidly. Greta has pointed out that “our house is on fire,” but the adults in the room seem oblivious. Some even attack her as being mentally ill. Millions of young people and even some of the older generation agree with her. Young people from Camrose joined the strike on Sept. 27. Neuroscientists tell us that our brains are not designed to deal with slow moving dangers like climate change. We deny or discount the danger because we expect danger to be clearly apparent, rather than slow and incremental. Scientists have been aware of the danger of climate change for more than 100 years and have been sounding the alarm bells for at least 50 years. We could have solved the problem had we listened to what science warned us about if we had started action when the problem became obvious to scientists, instead we became truth deniers. In a universe where the nature of reality is not easy to discern, truth must be extracted by rigorous testing by using tools to extend our senses, like telescopes, microscopes, computers, mathematics and our ability to use reason to clear away the fog of ignorance. Opinion is not truth. The truth value of an opinion can only be discerned

by testing it against what nature herself tells us. That is called science! Neither of the two main political parties are going to change anything without being forced to. The coming federal election is mostly a farce. However, it is important that as many of us who are able, vote in opposition to the status quo where denial of truth is rampant. No matter who wins this election, we must put pressure on our elected leaders to face reality and make evidence based decisions rather than based on ideology. Harry D. Gaede, Camrose Lack of urgency

I’m struck by the lack of climate urgency displayed by our political leaders in this federal election. It is a continuation of the willful ignorance displayed in our recent provincial election. All parties are guilty, but because we have provincial Conservatives in power and will certainly elect a federal Conservative, I will direct my ire at them, although I could spread the blame quite liberally (pun intended). The National Post’s Andrew Coyne describes the Sheer climate plan as “prop, not a plan–a work essentially of mischief–an intentionally pointless bit of misdirection.” The Globe and Mail’s Gary Mason describes it as “a sad joke.” Provincially, Jason Kenny has undermined every effort to make the urgent changes we need. Conservatives lack the courage to meet the climate threat. Conservatives weren’t always like this. As Seth Kline points out in his Tyee article, the leadership of Winston Churchill galvanized the Commonwealth to action against a seemingly unstoppable Nazi foe. Back then, Canada mobilized every corner of the econo-

my against the existential threat and in the process changed our lives permanently. Together, Canadians built 800,000 military vehicles, 50,000 tanks, 40,000 naval and aircraft guns, 348 merchant cargo ships, 393 warships and 16,000 military aircraft. All this was accomplished following the Great Depression in six short years. Historians called this, “an astonishing feat of organization and production, a massive effort by every sector of the Canadian economy.” Conservative leadership needs to inspire the same effort with climate change. Polls show most Conservative voters believe climate change poses a serious problem. If only Conservative policies reflected their voters’ concerns. Stanford University analyzed the economies of every jurisdiction in the world. It shows what energy mix is required to meet emission targets by 2050 to stop runaway climate change. The energy mix Calgary needs for 100 per cent transition to renewables are four per cent residential solar, 19 per cent solar plants, 10 per cent concentrating solar plants, 35 per cent wind, four per cent commercial solar, nine per cent geothermal and 19 per cent hydroelectric. This uses current technology and provides 8,308 construction jobs and 2,821 operations jobs in Calgary for 40 years. These jobs are directly transferable from current energy and tech sectors. We have the technology we need now. Conservatives must stop the obfuscation and work with all Canadians to inspire the changes we need.

Local area farmer and agriculture writer Gerald Pilger recently won the Frank Jacobs Press Column Gold Award from the 2019 Canadian Farm Writers’ Federation (CFWF) Awards for his March 12 column in the Country Guide, entitled “Is Hawaii the Canary in the Cornfield?” Gerald has been a freelance writer in agriculture since 1986. He writes a regular column for Country Guide, but has also written pieces for Farm Forum, Grainews as well as writing other various agriculture works. In 1996 when the Pilger family farm sold the dairy part of the operations, it freed up some of Gerald’s time, which would have been spent milking Hosteins, to pursue his passion for writing and sharing information to the agriculture community. “I was writing up to 50 articles a year,” said Gerald, saying that most of the work was one farmer telling other farmers what they were doing on the farm. “I gradually worked into writing more technical and opinion, which lead into me writing for the Country Guide – a medium that covers issues on the bigger agriculture picture. His target audience depends on which source he is writing for, but is always intended on providing information of interest to agriculture producers. This particular piece, which garnished him the gold award this year, addressed the concern of decreasing grain production and prices and lessons

that can be learned from similar circumstances experienced in Hawaii. Quoted from his column, “Until a few decades ago, Hawaii was self-sufficient in food production. Today, Hawaii produces only 15 per cent of its food needs; the rest is imported.” The topic of his writings vary depending on the intended audience, but generally speaking, he is trying to expand the view of agriculture producers with information that lays outside the realm of their own farms, whether that be in our own local area or from around the world, such as the Hawaii column. This is not Gerald’s first time being recognized for his writing contributions by the Canadian Farm Writers’ Federation. In 2010, he won gold, in 2016 and 2017 silver and in 2018 gold. “All of my articles are online, so occasionally people comment online or by phone calls or email, sometimes asking questions and sometimes offering opinions.” When choosing what he will write about, specifically for Country Guide, Gerald goes with what he feels offers farmers a different way to look at operations outside their own farms. “Most farmers are very focused on their own operations and don’t look beyond their farm border or community,” he said. The articles Gerald writes look beyond not only the borders of the farm, but the province and country as well. “This particular one on Hawaii looked at what happened to the agriculture in Hawaii and how it may pertain to agriculture in Canada in the future. “I try to open their eyes about events that don’t normally happen on their farms.” To read Gerald’s full column, visit the Country Guide website at

City council voted for no By-election By Lori Larsen

During a special council meeting on Oct. 2, City of Camrose council voted to accept the extension granted from the minister of affairs to not proceed with a by-election in regards to the councillor vacancy, until the next general election. The vacancy on council is the result of former City of Camrose councillor Cathie Johnson resign-

ing from her position as of Sept. 9, due to personal health concerns. During the Sept. 16 regular council meeting, a resolution was passed requesting Mayor Norm Mayer to inquire about an exemption to holding a byelection based on the number of council members currently sitting on council. Some council members proposed that forgoing a

by-election would result in cost savings to the City estimated at $75,000 over the next two years. Council also suggested that this may be an opportunity to trial the concept of a smaller council. Councillor Max Lindstrand noted, “Although there would now be an even number on council, we recognize that a tied vote represents a failed vote.”

Watching my children decide on activities that interest them this fall has made me think back to my childhood. Both my younger brother and I were enrolled in piano lessons and my mum tried to learn a bit too in the beginning. A few years ago, I asked my mum why I continued on with piano, but my brother stopped. I could remember him playing Yankee Doodle Dandy relentlessly, but that’s the only tune I could recall. Sometimes my mum’s memory of our childhood is patchy, but this memory seemed to be easy to draw upon. We had pulled up in our van for lessons, she recalled. We hopped out and then my brother turned around, grabbed onto the handle of the van and refused to let go. She grabbed onto him and pulled. Then she picked up his feet and pulled. “And that,” she retold with an air of finality, “was his last lesson.” Now either piano just wasn’t something he was passionate about, or he wasn’t clicking with his teacher. I haven’t had to pull my children off the van, but sometimes I wonder how as a parent we can know how much is too much and what areas in which to invest time. The best advice I received on this was from my older brother when I asked him how I would know what musical instrument my kids should learn. He said to expose them to all kinds of instruments. When they see an instrument or someone performing an instrument and want to know what it is, and if they can learn how to do it, you have found their instrument. Being exposed to an activity was how my daughter came to be in figure skating. My sister-in-law was skating at the annual carnival so we went a few years ago to show her our support. My daughter was mesmerized as the costumed skaters swirled across the ice and on the way home she asked if she could do that. Yes, yes, you can. There are so many choices these days for activities. Skating, dance, soccer, lacrosse, football, taekwondo, gymnastics, AWANA, Scouts and Brownies, skipping, skiing, piano, violin, guitar…when do they get to sleep and play on the swings? I think that free time is so important for children to unwind and use their imaginations. When they choose an activity, I want them to be excited to go. I also want it to be something that will give them confidence, and show that they can improve their skills with hard work. When I was growing up, I didn’t do many winter activities outside of school. But in the spring and summer months, I doubled up with outdoor soccer and swim club. I can remember walking to soccer after swimming for an hour and feeling pretty proud of myself when coach said I didn’t need to run laps since I was already warmed up. Sometimes if a young person is going through a bit of disinterest in their chosen activity, they just need encouragement to stay on track. I’m glad now that I stayed in piano lessons because it’s a lifelong skill, even though there have been a number of years when those keys have only been played for Christmas carols. When I was in college, I would go to lane swim for exercise between classes and it was relaxing because I had gained that skill to the point where I could think about other things at the same time. I coach my kids in soccer now, something I really enjoy, and it’s been helpful to have played the game myself. My children seem to be excited to take part in out-ofschool activities and never complain about going. It is me who sometimes wonders how to keep up this pace, and who reflects on what is the right amount of busy. My mind sometimes pictures a blonde-haired little boy, earnestly fighting for more free time, clinging with all his might to that van door, taking a stand against something he wasn’t interested in. As a parent, all I can do is be prepared if a van removal situation ever comes up and be willing to make that their last lesson.

Juliet and Romeo

Juliet’s story told with dance and music By Murray Green

Kimberley Cooper and the team at Decidedly Jazz Dance (DJD) is presenting Juliet’s take of the Shakespeare classic tale at the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre on Oct. 11 at 7:30 p.m. Kimberley provides the artistic direction and choreography on the production adapted by Cory Bowles (Trailer Park Boys). “It will feature the DJD Company of dancers and live, original music by the Nick Fraser Ensemble. Everyone is Canadian,” said Kimberley. “I decided to flip the name so people will know it won’t be exactly what you would be expecting from Romeo and Juliet. I find Juliet to be the more interesting character, so we have more of a focus on her,” explained Kimberley. “It’s a contemporary take on an old classic. Corey also taught Shakespeare and is a multi-talented artist. It is modern take with rap and spoken word with some original words from the Queen’s Mad speech.” Continued on page 19

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Sarah Brown has some exciting plans for people who want to have fun curling this season at the Rose City Curling Club. Welcome Week is Oct. 15 to 20 in Camrose.

Michael Harrison of Camrose shot rounds of 73, 77 and 73 to place second at the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference men’s provincials on Sept. 27 to 29 at Coal Creek Golf Course. “Michael Harrison finished second and will be going to the national championship. I will also be attending,” said coach Bill Penny. The championship will be played at the Continental Golf Club in SainteVictoire de Sorel, Quebec on Oct. 14 to 18. “By Michael’s finish in the zone championship, he

is awarded the All-Canadian status,” added coach Bill. Teammates Brady Johnson came in seventh, Braden Clarkson was 10th place and Blake Feth was 32nd for the Vikings to place third as a team. Although the men’s team placed third in the championship and received the bronze medal, only the top two ACAC conference teams advance to the Nationals. Jayden Bauer led the Augustana ladies’ team with a sixth-place finish and rounds of 87, 93 and 94. Hannah Gau placed 16th for the Vikings.

Rose City Curling Club welcomes new season By Murray Green

The Rose City Curling Club will be welcoming a new season of curling in Camrose on Oct. 15 to 20. New manager Sarah Brown is no stranger to Camrose. She curled on the University of Alberta Augustana Campus women’s curling rink for four years. “When I heard this position was open, I was excited at the opportunity to submit my resume. I’ve always loved this curling club and this community when I lived here. It was an interesting opportunity for me to come here and revitalize the curling a little bit,” she said. After leaving Augustana, she went to work at the Avonair Curling Club in Edmonton for a year, and then spent two years with the Sherwood Park Curling Club under Heather Nedohin. “I have lots of ideas and we have some new directors with ideas. I would like more one-day events. We will still have weekend bonspiels for traditional curlers, but we want to attract a younger crowd. The trouble with young couples is that they need to find sitters, so we decided to host a swing and sweep, which partners with virtual golf and curling in January,” shared Sarah. “One Friday a month, we will have a CurlJam that is geared toward beginning curlers. We want people to come in and we will teach you how to curl. It involves four ends of curling, a special evening of food, fun and entertainment,” added Sarah. She plans on coaching as well as being the man-

ager. “I want to help with the adult learn to curl programs.” The curling club will still have the regular women’s, mixed and men’s leagues. “What we want to push for is social leagues where people can come in and learn the game with others. Instead of eight ends and two hours of play, we want six ends and have more time for socializing and fun.” The club will be offering free curling lessons Oct. 15 to 17. The action begins at 7 p.m. with instructors available on all three nights. “I learned a lot from Heather, so I will be bringing that knowledge to this position. Working with her has helped me with managing skills.” The Icebreaker Open will be the first bonspiel on Oct. 19 and 20. It is geared towards all ages and skill levels. Games are four ends and you can enter as a team, or as an individual. “With a new manager every year, it is hard to find stability. If the directors will have me, I would like to be around for awhile to develop curling and programs. I want the club to grow every year.” The club had 230 curlers last year. “My dream is to have all nine sheets full, rather than a number of curlers. I want people to be excited about coming here to the rink,” said Sarah. The club is currently working on washroom renovations through the City. In February, the club will be hosting high school zones and a junior curling tour event.

Juliet’s story through dance, theatre, music Continued from page 16

“Some people say it is a story about love, but there are some really violent aspects to the story as well. We don’t hide that.” DJD invites audiences to experience how jazz shapes movement and feeling. Explore the connection between personal expression and collaboration in movements. The touring company includes nine dancers, a narrator and three musicians. “Nick is a drummer, so the music is drum based, but has a violin and a trombone to give an interesting group of sounds and can be haunting. I was inspired by the music.” The show blends various talents together. “It is a combination of dance, theatre and a jazz concert. This is Shakespeare’s tale of love and violence reimagined, re-visited, reloved, hyper-realized, sampled, questioned recognizable, but twisted, current and classic, gritty and glorious. In the spirit of jazz we dance. “It means we are inspired by an art form that inspires us, moves us, challenges us. It means we dance to music.

Rhythmically. With bent knees and movement bubbling up from our chests, hearts, torsos. It means we embrace the moment by improvising. We dance as a community and honour each individual and their own personal expression. It means we respect and celebrate the history, roots and traditions of jazz.” At DJD they have a growing culture, and in this culture, created in the spirit of jazz, they believe in dance for all. “We are thrilled to be touring our hit show from 2017, Juliet and Romeo, within Alberta. The biggest change is that dancer Natasha Korney will be playing the role of the narrator as well. “It is a thrill to revisit this work with a female voice and energy weaving us through the story.” “It has taken 16 weeks to put the story together on stage and a few weeks together with musicians,” said Kimberley. “We are excited to perform in Camrose, our first time and we want to spend an extra day there.”

Jake’s Gift shares a story of Remembrance By Murray Green

Jake’s Gift, the multiaward winning play about a Canadian Second World War veteran’s reluctant return to Normandy, France for the anniversary of the D-Day landings, is returning for two shows in Camrose. Jake’s Gift will be on stage at the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre in Camrose on Saturday, Oct. 26, for two shows at 2:00 and 7:30 p.m. She first performed the show in Camrose in 2016. “I was so moved to learn that people wanted us to come back to Camrose. It’s rare that you get to return to a theatre with the same show, so we were pretty thrilled to hear from the amazing team at Lougheed Performing Arts Centre, that the community had

been asking if they could bring us back,” said actress Julia Mackey. “That is probably the biggest compliment you can get as a touring artist. We had such an amazing time (in Camrose) and we were very moved by everyone’s response to the show, so we are really thrilled to be coming back. We hope we get a great turnout for both shows.” The veterans really appreciated her story. “One of the most enjoyable experiences over the last 13 years of touring Jake’s Gift has been meeting and talking to veterans after the show. Each of them has expressed to me how much they enjoyed the play and that they are really pleased that someone was wanting to tell their story in

en friends, who never got to come home,” she explained.

“We were back in Normandy this past June for the 75th Anniversary of D-Day and we had a D-Day veteran, David Teacher, right in the front row when I did the show on June 3 in the exact place the Queen’s Own Rifles landed on D-Day. It was an incredibly moving experience to perform in the exact locale I talk about it in the play,” said Julia. “David is British, but he landed with the Canadians on Juno Beach. He told me that he was very moved by the play and it made him laugh too, which was a great joy to me. Many of the veterans we’ve met have told us the play brings back some good memories as well as some more difficult ones.” Continued on page 30

Participate in the City of Camrose

“Great Fire Escape” Home Fire Drill Wednesday, Oct. 9, 6:00 to 6:30 pm

Camrose Fire Department is encouraging Camrose families to develop a fire escape plan for their home and to take part in a city-wide fire drill. Firefighters will be patrolling the city during that time to hand out prizes for participants!

Camrose Fire Department is teaming up with the National Fire Protection Association® (NFPA®)—the official sponsor of Fire Prevention Week for more than 90 years—to promote this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!” The campaign works to educate everyone about the small, but important, actions they can take to keep themselves, and those around them, safe. In Canada, most fire deaths occur in the home, where people believe they are most safe. Canadian fire departments respond to roughly 25,600 structure fires per year. In 2015, structure fires caused more than 1,400 injuries and almost 200 deaths.* “These numbers show that home fires continue to pose a significant threat to safety,” said Lorraine Carli, NFPA’s vice president of Outreach and Advocacy. “In a typical home fire, you may have as little as one to two minutes to escape safely from the time the smoke alarm sounds. Escape planning and practice can help you make the most of the time you have, giving everyone enough time to get out. While NFPA and the Camrose Fire Department are focusing on home fires, these messages apply to virtually any location. “Situational awareness is a skill people need to use wherever they go,” said Jeff Knopf, Fire and Life Safety educator for the Camrose Fire Department. “No matter where you are, look for available exits. If the alarm system sounds, take it seriously and exit the building immediately.” The Camrose Fire Department is hosting a series of events in support of this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!” including: October 8th 6pm- 8pm – Fire Hall Open House & Firefighter Meet & Greet, featuring side-by-side live fire demonstration at 6:30pm. Join us for hot dogs and beverages!

Call the Camrose Fire Department for more information –


October 9th 6:00-6:30pm – Great Fire Escape Home Fire Drill. All residents are encouraged to participate in the city wide fire drill. Firefighters will be driving through the city of Camrose and giving out prizes to participating families. Be at your meeting spot to participate.

Lagace restores a Wrangler model truck By Murray Green

When Chuck Lagace revived his 1987 Chevrolet Wrangler truck, it brought back a lot of fond memories. “I bought it used, but it only had 6,000 km on it. My daughter and I went up to Leduc, and she said if you don’t buy it, I will. She was 16 at the time and had no money,” explained Chuck. “It has been in the family, going on for 32 years. The last 20 years it has been used mostly as the truck at our cabin. It was used as a fishing, dump, get firewood, run errands truck. Over the years I let it go a bit.” The Wrangler was a truck package that featured striping, a 4 by 4 and V8 engine. The Wrangler edition was a Canadian-exclusive vehicle. It was similar in concept to the Chevy Bonanza/GMC Royal Sierra packages that appeared in the US market. His youngest granddaughter, Rylee, affectionately called the truck “Black Bart” because of it’s colour and mysterious good looks. “She decided that papa should fix up the truck because she learned to drive on it four or five years ago. So, last year I did the body work and


Murray Green, Camrose Booster Chuck Lagace, of Camrose, restored the 1987 Chevrolet Wrangler truck he used at his cabin to pass along to his granddaughter. Wrangler editions were only sold in Canada.

little by little brought it back to the original state,” explained Chuck. “It is going to be Rylee’s truck down the road, because she loves animals, horses and old trucks. And, I guess I do too.”


The Wrangler models were unavailable on nonWrangler Canadian (and US) pickups, including special exterior decal and paint schemes. Wrangler packages (A, B, C and D) offered four versions for 1987 pickups. Package A included a discount on interior trim, Wrangler nameplates on the front fenders and instrument panel, Wrangler hood ornament, bright wheel opening moldings, color-keyed headliner and a choice of two paint treatments. It included a Wrangler exclusive colour coordinated five-stripe upper body side decal. This decal ran the length of the vehicle, and included a stylized W on the rear of the bed. Wrangler package B included classic trim (offering a choice of standard carpeting, or a Wrangler-exclusive combination of this trim with a rubber floor mat), sliding rear window, rally wheels or wheel covers, stainless steel below-eyeline mirrors and a leather wrapped steering wheel. Wrangler package C was offered only in combination with either A or B for pickups. It had equipment necessary for maximum GVWR of 6,100 lbs, including four speed manual transmission with or without overdrive; or a three speed or four speed overdrive automatic transmission, heavy duty power brakes, extra-capacity rear springs, radial tires, heavy duty shock absorbers, heavy duty battery and front stabilizer bar. Wrangler Package D was also offered with either packages A or B and could also be ordered with or without package C.

The truck has an automatic transmission with a 305 fuel injection motor. “It is a good motor that pulled a horse trailer with two horses in it. Maybe it could have had a little more power, but it always got the job done.” The truck was used to complete a variety of tasks. “It has been a good truck over the years, but they do rust over time. I get a lot of comments on it. It is a special edition and the Wrangler package included an orange strip on the sides. I’m trying to get a new dash for it because it is cracked,” said Chuck. “All of the metal in the truck is new except for the hood and tailgate. The bumpers and wheels are original. It’s not a bad looking old truck. It’s been a good truck in regards to the mechanical parts. I haven’t had a whole lot of trouble with it. The truck has 240,000 on it, which sounds like a lot, but considering the age of the truck that is not too bad,” added Chuck. “I built a storage shed at our cabin, so it will be

Keeping mental health in check By Lori Larsen

Canadians are being asked to get loud about mental health and let their voices be heard, specifically during Mental Health Week from Oct. 6 until 12. “The most important message the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) delivers is that mental health, unlike mental illness, is something we all have and is every person’s issue,” commented registered provisional psychologist and Open Door executive director Jessica Hutton. “The first Mental Health Week was spawned in 1951 by CMHA. This year marks the 68th year of dedicating a week focused on reducing the stigma of mental illness and promoting good mental health.” It is proven that good mental health plays a significant role in people leading a full and meaningful life and research indicates there are six common features of good mental health that include: a sense of self, a sense of purpose, of belonging, contribution, enjoyment and resilience. There is all too often a stigma attached to the term mental illness; however, knowledge and understanding has proven over time to help reduce the stigma and while there is still a ways to go, society is becoming more aware of the serious role mental health plays in all of our lives. “According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, one of five Canadians lives with mental health problems, mental illnesses or addiction,” said Hutton. “Five out of five Canadians have mental health. “Camrose Open Door Association offers unique programs and supports to youth throughout the East Central Region of Alberta, as a way to connect with every youth to support their mental health. Connection is a significant piece in supporting all of our mental health. In a world where technology is rapidly outpacing human connection, it is no wonder society is having a hard time adjusting! Learning balance, how to access supports, how to connect, and how to name and respond to the emotions we feel as humans, is imperative for our mental health”

Hutton went on to explain the mission of the Open Door. “The Open Door comes in contact with thousands of youth in a year. It is our mission that our next generations are given the opportunity to thrive, by providing them the supports they need. Our programming specifically responds to youth needs. Our Community Helpers program provides training for learning to be a helper within the community and is open to anyone, of any age. Our outreach program provides connection 24/7 for youth, whatever they might need. Our housing program provides a safe place for youth when they may need it.

Various other programs provide a spectrum of support to all youth, with one common denominator. We believe in all youth and all of their potential.” For more information on The Open Door and to see events happening there during the Mental Health Week visit The Open Door facebook page.

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Erna Adam of Camrose asked friends and family to bring food items instead of presents on her 80th birthday on Sept. 24. About 140 people attended her birthday at the Norsemen Inn and brought food and cash donations, which she donated to Neighbor Aid Center executive director Jo-Anne Tweed. The Open Door and Camrose Women’s Shelter also received some food items. Submitted Camrose Police Service (CPS) members were among the 300 plus law enforcement members that attended the 21st annual Police and Peace Officers’ Memorial Day. Pictured left to right are CPS Constable Adam Belanger, Staff Sergeant Rene Brisson, Chief Dean LaGrange, covert officer, Constable Shawn Lofgren and Chaplain Brian Krushel. By Lori Larsen

On Sept. 29, approximately 300 members of law enforcement and justice agencies from across the province joined in a somber tribute to police and peace officers who paid the ultimate sacrifice protecting the well being of others. Gathering on the legislature grounds in Edmonton, the police and peace officers paid their respects during a the 21st annual Police and Peace Officers’ Memorial Day, befitting the honour the fallen officers deserve. Attending the ceremony were six

Camrose Police Service members, including Chief of Police Dean LaGrange, four other sworn officers and CPS Chaplain Brian Krushel. “Knowing some of the fallen officers personally, seeing the impact on their families, drives home the importance of recognizing their sacrifice and ensuring their memory is never forgotten,” remarked LaGrange. The list of officers who died protecting the public since 1876 in Alberta contains 100 names.

University, St. Mary’s join forces for health study NEWSPAPER_9.4488x8.indd 1

The key to getting healthy after surgeries is to maintain a regular exercise routine. When your willpower is not enough, personalized coaching encourages knee replacement patients to increase activity levels. Judy Stauffer is not about to slow down at age 72. She has several reasons to keep active: a new knee, the Fitbit her physical therapist gave her and the encouragement of her grandchildren. “You don’t cheat on your Fitbit,” she said laughing. Judy is part of a study looking into the effects of helping knee replacement patients stay active before and after surgery. The Coaching for Older Adults for Community Health (COACH) program sees participants connect with a physical therapist every week via phone to discuss challenges, successes and set goals. Judy, who lives near Rimbey, is thankful for the advice and the motivation. Her other sources of inspi-

2019-10-02 3:04 PM

ration, including her Fitbit, also keep her moving. “And the funny part was the grandchildren and friends would say ‘Oh, how many steps are you at now? What are you doing? Do you want to go out?’ And the kids would say ‘Let’s go for a walk’ and they’d want to write down how many steps we went on our walk,” said Judy. “Suddenly I had quite a number of coaches.” Staying active is a challenge for many patients who received either hip or knee replacements. But it can be even more difficult for those living in rural areas, says University of Alberta researcher and professor Allyson Jones. That’s why the study, funded by a grant from the Covenant Health Network for Excellence in Seniors’ Health and Wellness (NESHW), kept a rural focus. “We’re in a unique situation in the western provinces because we have these large centres, but a large rural component that is underserved with rehabilitation professionals.” After Judy’s surgery

at Covenant Health St. Mary’s Hospital Camrose, she went to follow-up appointments at the nearby Camrose Musculoskeletal Clinic where study participants were identified and connected with a physical therapist who was from either Camrose or Edmonton. The patient and physical therapist connect through phone calls every week for 12 weeks, setting activity goals and tracking progress. Patients receive a Fitbit, set goals and track progress on a shared dashboard. “The coaching is personalized,” said Allyson. “So it isn’t saying, ‘Here are some ideas to keep active.’ It’s helping the person to problem solve so that they can do activities that are important to them.” The timing is important, too. Research shows joint replacement patients see the greatest improvement in pain relief and functional recovery in the first three to six months after surgery, added Allyson. Following surgery, joint

replacement patients have scheduled appointments at two weeks, six weeks, three months and one year at the clinic with their surgeon and care team. The COACH program aims to bridge the gap between the three-month and oneyear time span and help patients make the most of their recovery. “Some people are returning to work and some of our patients are still working full time. The average return to work is three months post-op,” said physical therapist Rose Powar, Judy’s coach. “They’re going back to work, they’re trying to juggle full-time jobs and have purposeful activity and exercise outside of work, so it’s a great time to catch certain things that would otherwise be missed.” Finding fun ways to get and stay active can be a challenge in rural areas where there are fewer fitness options and less access to facilities. Creative solutions include finding spaces, such as community halls, that welcome people

to walk indoors during the winter months or participating in free local Primary Care Network fitness classes and programs that may be offered. In Judy’s case, a friend approached a local hotel and asked if they could rent their small pool for an aquasize class. “This was kind of unheard of, but they went for it,” said Rose. “And it’s been tremendously popular.” Judy believes personalized coaching made a difference for her. Her goal-setting and weekly calls with Rose encouraged her to take daily walks, increase attendance at aquasize classes and return to one of her favourite activities, cross-country skiing. “I found it very effective. I had forgotten how much less I was doing in the last three years before the surgery. When I started with Rose as a coach and we set goals together, that was really motivating. I would say I was doing more than I had even four years ago.” Continued on page 30

Jake’s Gift returns Continued from page 19

People put themselves in Jake’s position. “When we meet younger veterans who were in campaigns after the Second World War, they see themselves as Jake down the road, and so even though the play is about the Second World War veteran’s return to Normandy, it seems to connect to veterans of all ages, which makes me very happy.” There are two new banners added to the set. Because the shows are on Saturday, both are public performances. “We recommend the show for Grade 5 and up. Certainly a lot of people, especially seniors, prefer matinees so they don’t have to travel at night, but Jake’s Gift is a one-act play that runs 65 minutes with no intermission, so if you choose matinee or evening, it’s still an early night.” Julia seamlessly moves from one character to another on stage. “I perform solo using four different characters. It is about a Canadian veteran who travels back to Normandy to find his brother’s grave. He doesn’t like to talk about the war and it is a hard decision to go back,” shared Julia. The local army and air cadets are encouraged to be part of the audience as well as local veterans. “We will be selling Jake’s Gift Button Packages after the show once again and 100 per cent of the profit will be donated to the Camrose Legion.”

Moose rut season

Ann Dowhaniuk (nee: Jones) May 3, 1964 ~ September 28, 2019 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ann. She was granted her angel wings on September 28, 2019 at the age of 55. Her final days were spent surrounded by family and friends whom Ann had touched in some way throughout her memorable life. She was the youngest child of Lindsay and Ruth Jones, born May 3, 1964 in St. Walburg, Saskatchewan. She attended Spruce Lake Elementary School and graduated grade twelve from St. Walburg High School in 1982. After graduating, she attended Marvel Beauty School in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. She started working for AGT in Vegreville, Alberta in 1984, transferring to Camrose, Alberta, and retiring in 2003. She then worked for Hauck Hearing Centre and retired from there in 2012. Ann was blessed with three handsome sons: Skylar Dayne, born July 2, 1990, Dylan Brodan, born November 20, 1994 and Kieran Layne, born April 1, 1996. They were the light of her life. She made every holiday, birthday and family occasion as memorable as possible. Christmas and Halloween were her favorite holidays; she decorated the house and yard for everyone’s enjoyment. Ann was predeceased by her father Lindsay Jones in September 2001. Left to cherish her memory are her sons Skylar of Camrose, Dylan of Leduc, and Kieran of Camrose; special friend Manfred Behnke; mother Ruth Jones; close friends Karen, Nicole, Yvonne and Wayne; siblings Sheila (Mitch) Illerbrun of Lloydminster, Linda (Garth) Kirkness of Prince Albert, SK, Patricia (Darryl) Napper of Turtle Lake, SK, Julie (Tony) Borzel of Lashburn, SK, John Jones of Spruce Lake, SK, Susan (Kevin) Senkin of Marshall, SK and Vicki (Wayne) Madden of St. Walburg, SK; and numerous nieces and nephews. At Ann’s request, there will be no public service. A private family service will be held at a later date. If family and friends so desire, memorial contributions in Ann’s memory may be made to the Camrose and Area Animal Shelter Society or to St. Mary’s Hospital – ICU. To send condolences, please visit

Driving on county roads can pose challenges at the best of times, add to that an increase in wildlife traversing county fields and roadways and less daylight, and the risk of a motor vehicle versus wildlife collision increases. “This time of year, the moose are in rut,” noted Camrose Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Branch District Officer Lorne Rinkel. “In this area, that is approximately Sept. 24 to around Thanksgiving.” Because of their sheer size, an incident involving a moose and a motor vehicle can have tremendous impact resulting in the moose collapsing into the vehicle causing severe damage to the vehicle, possible injury or worse to occupants of the vehicle and injury to the moose sometimes resulting the euthanasia of the animal. “It is a very dangerous thing, especially this time of year, as bull moose will be wondering and they lose all common sense, they are seen everywhere and any time of the day,” warned Rinkel.“The moose frequently show up in farmyards and may take up residence in shelter belts or around the buildings. “Both male and female moose are probably the most dangerous animals in Alberta, overall. They are very large and have an aggressive nature this time of year, so I strongly advise residents to stay clear of them.” Signs of aggression in a moose include laying back their ears, the hair on the back of their necks bristling up and they may or may not charge. Rinkel said that unlike predatory animals, such as cougars, making noise or making yourself appear larger and threatening does not intimidate moose. To avoid a negative encounter, Rinkel suggested backing up quietly and, when safe to do so, turn and get out of the area as quickly as possible. “Put space between you and the moose.” Rinkel reminds motorists to be extra cautious this time of year.

In loving memory of

David Robert Sederquest February 11, 1970 ~ October 7, 2010 Dear David: Nine years ago this week, as we sat on an old bench where the sun was shining down on us, You looked out over our land, hard work and accomplishments. You said, “Hey Mom, just look at all this, the fruit of our labours. But as beautiful as this all is, there is something coming that doesn’t compare. And I can’t wait!” Well my dear son, you didn’t have to wait long. A week to that day, that “something” happened for you. Away you went to be forever in that land beyond the sky. The place where the streets are paved with gold, the bluebirds sing forever, And the God of our universe reigns supreme. Just knowing where you are, and as much as I miss you daily, I would never wish you back. Enjoy your forever home, my dear son. Until I meet you there. Love, Mom

Judy thinks farmers would benefit from this program. Getting back on the tractor after surgery is not adequate exercise. While farmers probably wouldn’t take a pool fitness class and can be reluctant to drive to the city for medical appointments, Judy thinks they’d likely sign up for a weekly phone call.

Allyson and the research team from Camrose and Edmonton are analyzing the study’s results and hope to secure funding for a larger study that involves more Alberta communities. Allyson hopes the COACH program can eventually be implemented at other hip and knee clinics in Alberta. When Judy and Rose

set their initial goals, they had a couple of milestones in mind: a hiking trip and a vacation in France. Judy set, exceeded and increased her daily step goals, while focusing on walking on uneven ground like the farm. When she wanted to get better at going down stairs, she consulted Rose, who shared a video of helpful exercises.

The Phone Book that never needs to hit the recycling bin

You know the ritual… Fall arrives and up to three ‘new’ phone books arrive at your doorstep. As usual, you reluctantly send each of the books from the previous year to Centra Cam Recycling Centre. (Many people, according to our research, question the reason that they need a different phone book annually) Our ‘phone directory’ is different. Content changes daily. You can quickly search for any publicly-available residence or business number from Camrose and district. The content changes, seven days per week, in our remarkable, electronic “phone book.” You can place a free buy and sell ad, you can check the weather, get all breaking news and sports stories, read the Booster (or the Country Booster, or Super Booster). Check out who’s having a birthday, even do a crossword puzzle or read a joke. You might even find a new career opportunity. And, much more too! It started as a smarter phone book. Now it’s even better. If you haven’t checked us out lately, do so now! We’ve made a multitude of user-friendly changes.

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.

Kodiaks pick up two points By Murray Green

Camrose Kodiaks were forced to play two overtime games in the Alberta Junior Hockey League Showcase, on Sept. 27 and 28. The Kodiaks built up a 3-2 lead after the opening period against the Fort McMurray Oil Barons, but the northerners fought back to win 5-4 in the shoot out. Griffen Fraser, Callum Gau and Cody Laskosky bent the twine in the first.

Laskosky added his second of the contest in the middle frame between Fort McMurray goals. After no scoring from either team in the third and overtime periods, a shootout determined which club received the extra point. Goalie Cole Tisdale stopped 46 of 50 shots he faced in the contest. Camrose fired 33 shots at the Oil Barons’ cage. The Bonnyville Pontiacs edged the Kodiaks 3-2

in overtime. Erik Miller notched both tallies for Camrose, one in each of the first two periods. Goalie Griffin Bowerman turned away 30 of 33 shots directed his way. Camrose plays three straight home games in the Encana Arena beginning at 7 p.m. On Oct. 11, the Lloydminster Bobcats provide the opposition, Okotoks are here on Oct. 12 and Brooks is back on Oct. 19.

Battle River School Division

Creating Awareness. Building Relationships Focused on what’s important The Battle River School Division Board of Trustees is responsible for developing the goals and policies which guide educational services for students. The Board is accountable to the community and to the government of Alberta.

BRSD welcomes international students to our schools.

Fine Arts opportunities broaden minds.

As they reach the half-way point in their four-year term, the BRSD Board is focused on four priorities: - Creating awareness of our school division’s challenges; - Building collaboration with partners;

Exposure to indigenous culture builds understanding.

- Engaging stakeholders; - Reviewing and reconsidering how service is provided. Ready, set, go! Hundreds of students cross country race.

In this report to the community, we will celebrate some of the multitude of ways in which students across our division achieve success – academically, socially and emotionally – wherever they go to school.

Literacy is fundamental.

In addition, we will share some of our realities, along with examples of how the Board has worked on addressing its priorities. Welcome new teachers!

Our school division is accountable to citizens of the communities we serve. This publication was produced and distributed into households throughout the division at a cost of approximately 43.5 cents per copy.

Students in schools throughout Battle River found success and meaning at school in a variety of ways during the 2018-2019 school year.

Whether they were improving their academic performance, participating on a sports team or band class, learning to get along better with others or deal with stress, it’s all part of a positive learning experience. BRSD students performed well on provincial achievement and diploma exams, matching most other school divisions’ results. In addition, schools provided a variety of opportunities for students to build positive relationships, character traits and mental resilience skills. Educational Ass

istants enjoyed

a two-day lear

ning conference

Staff, too, were provided ongoing opportunities to build their skills and abilities, as we continue to work toward the vision of Every Student, Every Day, A Success.

Sharing our story It’s a time of change in rural Alberta. Declining populations and an economic downturn have created many challenges for families and communities. Rural school divisions face the same difficult realities. Over the past year, Battle River School Division has been sharing its story in order to build awareness of the issues we face.

The Board heard from a student who sits on the Minister’s Advisory Council.

By the Numbers Here are four challenges we face in Battle River School Division:

75% of our spending is on PEOPLE.

From sponsoring election forums and creating messages about our priorities, to presenting at conferences, talking with parents and community stakeholders, the BRSD Board has worked hard to help people understand its realities. One of the most pressing realities is declining enrollment. As rural areas face a loss of population, so too do schools. From the time our school division was formed in 1995 to the 2018-2019 school year, our student numbers decreased by 1800 students. The declines have been most significant in the rural areas.

Funding for school divisions is based on student enrollment. Lower numbers mean: - Less funding for programs and staff; -­Fewer dollars to cover busing; - Inadequate amounts to maintain school buildings.

It’s a challenge to make changes without impacting jobs.

8/12 BRSD high schools

serve 75 students or less in Grades 10 to 12. It’s a challenge to provide a full range of programs to small numbers of students in each grade.

$300,000 is a typical cost

for a school roof repair. It’s a challenge to cover that cost for schools with lower student numbers.

80 is the average number of

minutes students spend on the school bus each day. It’s a challenge to keep ride times reasonable. Board and staff gathered with parent and student reps to share information on BRSD’s realities.

Since 1995 enrollment has declined by 1,800 students.

BRSD and school council reps spoke at the Rural Education Symposium and the Alberta School Councils Association annual conference.

Looking ahead – we want to hear from you! Over the fall and early winter of 2019 – 2020, Battle River School Division will be asking for your views. Whether you’re a parent, a student, a staff member or a community stakeholder, your opinion matters and we want to hear it. We’ll be asking for your thoughts on the future and your ideas for how a rural school division such as ours can remain sustainable while continuing to provide a quality educational experience for students. Watch for opportunities to be part of the conversation! The Board has been meeting with municipal bodies and councils.

Where did the money go in 2018-2019?


1.77% Instruction – 75.35% Facilities – 13.13%


Student Transportation – 6.23%

Battle River School Division works hard to ensure resources are allocated in ways that serve the best interests of students. That’s why more than 75 percent of the $83 million in expenditures for the 2018-2019 school year went directly to student instruction. That amount includes the cost of ensuring schools have adequate staff, that there are specialized programs available to meet student needs and that our technology and learning resources are continually updated. A further 6.2 percent of expenditures was budgeted to transport children to and from school each day. That includes purchase of school buses, as well as the salaries and training of people who drive them, as well as schedule them. Operating and maintaining school facilities, creating positive environments in which students and staff can spend their days, accounted for another 13 percent of budgeted spending. Nearly 2 percent was directed to external services, which includes providing mental health and personal support programs for students, as well as promoting

our schools and programs internationally, in order to welcome students from across the globe to join us here in Battle River. The School Division budgeted 3.5 percent of its spending for administration of the School Division, which includes providing staff to manage the payroll and benefit programs, ensure the bills are paid and the division continues to run smoothly.

We’re here to listen Norm Erickson, Chair City of Camrose

Karen Belich, Vice Chair Camrose County North

Moving forward through the second half of their four-year term, the Battle River School Division Board of Trustees will focus on gathering information from the community, in order to ensure the division remains sustainable and a quality education continues to be provided to all students. Watch for upcoming opportunities to provide your thoughts and suggestions. If you have concerns, please feel free to contact members of the Board through the email addresses listed here.
