Costume crafting glee

My daughter came up with the perfect idea for Halloween this year. She declared that we should be Vikings, since all three kids already had Viking toques gifted to them by my parents. I happened upon some faux fur blankets that I thought I could cut up and make a neck hole so that they were vests. Next we found wide secondhand belts that could cinch the vests up, and a plan to use brown bathroom mats and leftover baby blanket fleece as “fur” around our ankles and wrists. We borrowed Viking looking jewelry from family members. Then the kids decided that all good Vikings should have weapons, so we investigated on the Internet what a Viking weapon looked like. Before I knew it, the kids had turned the office into a weaponry room of sorts, with chunks of cardboard on the floor, a roll of duct tape and pack of aluminum foil. My daughter attached a mini soccer ball to a pole, put foil on it, and then attached her brother’s Nerf darts to make a mace. My eight-year-old just kept churning out the weapons, including ones he designed himself. He noted that his double-bladed axe was perfect, because you could slice an attacker from behind you and then swing it in front to stop another enemy. He asked if he could make a fifth weapon. I told him that there is the Halloween dance, dressing up at school and trick-or-treating. If the Viking in him wants a different weapon or two for each event, why not? I set to cutting up the blanket and discovered I would need to do some sewing as well. I brought out my trusty machine. (In high school, a friend noted that I spent more time stitch ripping than sewing, so I guess I have come a long way.) Soon, the steady hum of the needle was blending in with the excited chatter from the armaments room (I mean, the room formerly known as the office). I was covered in little chunks of fuzz from the blanket which were also swirling around on the floor. I felt a little tingle of glee. I have always dressed up for Halloween, but it has been a long time since we have made costumes ourselves. I have had the odd creative flair over the years like the Peter Pan costume with oversize t-shirt and felt hat with red feather hot glue gunned together, and the potato sack booties I made for my scarecrow costume last year. But this was a whole group project, a head-to-toe Halloween mission. At church recently, the Sunday School classes were talking about joy. I stayed for the kids’ class and they were making joy tanks (red construction paper made into envelopes) with pictures on the outside of things that bring them joy, and slips of paper inside describing what brings them joy. The idea being, if your joy is depleted during the week, you can be replenished by looking in your tank. I was a little caught off guard. I have felt so busy these past few weeks with making sure everyone is where they are supposed to be and have what they need for each activity. It was surprisingly centering to think about what brings me joy. Before I knew it, I was making a joy tank of my own. My slips of paper said things like spending time with family, laughing until my cheeks hurt, chai lattes with a friend, even though I call it going out for coffee, playing outside with my kids, seeing fall changes, playing with our puppy and doing something nice for someone that they are not expecting. I drew a picture on the envelope of a book and hot tea, a tree, music notes, a canoe, three healthy kids and a sprinkled doughnut. I pointed out to the children that on the group list we created on the chalkboard, most were simple, inexpensive things. Nobody said that watching television or playing video games or getting lots of toys brought them joy. I didn’t know it at the time, but crafting costumes with my kids to get ready for a family night of sweets should definitely be on my list. Now, back to the cardboard pieces and duct tape– those weapons won’t make themselves.

Joint policing leads to several charges

HUNTERS Blow Out Sale ON NOW!

By Lori Larsen

As the result of a joint effort with Camrose Police Service, Wetaskiwin RCMP, Wetaskiwin Crime Reduction Unit (CRU), Integrated Traffic Unit and RCMP Police Dog Service following an alert from Edmonton Police Service, two adult males were arrested and subsequently charged with several offences and a stolen truck was recovered. On Oct. 18 at 4:02 p.m., Wetaskiwin RCMP received information from Edmonton Police Service that a residence in Edmonton had allegedly been shot at. A Dodge Ram truck was identified as the suspect vehicle, and the occupants were believed to be known. Information was relayed by Edmonton Police Service that the suspects may be headed to the Bawlf area to commit further offences. Further information provided to Camrose Police Service from Edmonton Police Service indicated the suspect vehicle was in the parking lot of the Walmart store located in Camrose, and a male suspect had entered the Walmart store. Members of the Wetaskiwin Crime Reduction Unit (CRU) responded to Camrose area to assist. The CRU members located the suspect vehicle at the Walmart and arrested one of the occupants, without incident, as he left the Walmart. The operator of the suspect truck fled the parking lot at a high rate of speed. Members of the RCMP, along with Camrose Police Service, initiated a pursuit which extended to a Camrose rural area. Shortly after the pursuit was initiated, a member of the Wetaskiwin CRU team successfully deployed a tire deflation device on the suspect vehicle which continued into a farmer’s field, damaging property and eventually becoming disabled. Two individuals tried to flee on foot, but were subsequently arrested. Investigation revealed that the truck was stolen out of the Thorsby area. A search of the truck produced an air soft gun and a machete. No injuries incurred either at the residence in Edmonton or as a result of the arrests in Camrose. Camrose Police Service laid the following charges against one 22-year-old

More Than Just Your Average Dealer

Established in 2007, D&D Vehicle Sales Inc. is rated as one of the top internet sales dealerships in Western Canada and was listed on Profit 500’s list of Canada’s fastest growing companies five years in a row. It’s not a wonder why they are Alberta’s premier retailer of preowned vehicles. But do you know that they offer much more than just vehicle sales? Online resources give the knowledgeable sales team the ability to connect you to your ideal truck, car, or SUV. If the perfect fit isn’t on our lot, the friendly staff will find it for you. The same process applies to equipment and commercial vehicles. D&D’s unique in-house leasing program allows them to finance inventory that no other dealer would. For businesses with small or large fleets of equipment, this program is particularly

valuable since there are no kilometer restrictions and no effect on debt-servicing ratios. Most importantly, your business can benefit from major tax savings. “When it comes to working with banks or conventional lenders, getting financing can be a long and painful process. We are able to think outside the box and can provide approvals usually in the same day. When it comes to new businesses that don’t have a long track record, we are able to provide loans at competitive rates without any hassle,” said Kyle Skaret, General Manager. Aside from vehicle and equipment sales, D&D focuses heavily on rentals. “We are widely known for used vehicles sales, but we do a whole lot more,” said Kyle. “We have a big rental department with both vehicles and trailers.” Not only does D&D offer the lowest rates in town for daily rentals, they

also offer affordable weekly and monthly rates. Short-term rentals allow for businesses to use reliable vehicles and trailers for short-term projects or jobs without the burden of negative equity or excess equipment. Furthermore, you can rent through your business for a large tax write-off. “Sales are a smaller part of the business than what most people might think,” added Scott Berry, General Manager. “We offer fleet management services for companies. D&D can put together your commercial fleet to best suit your needs to keep your business growing and moving.” “If a business is awarded a new contract, then they can pick up the vehicles they need to complete the project. We purchase high end, brand new vehicles for the rental department so not only are they reliable, but they are the vehicles people want to drive,” said Scott. Apart from sales, leasing, financing, and rentals, D&D holds a team of highly qualified technicians in its Service Department. Because they are an independent dealership with less overhead, D&D is able to offer a lower shop rate and competitively priced parts. “We’ve done a ton of work in our service department. We have three new hoists and we have qualified people to run a great service and parts department. We can fix cars from the ’50s with restorations all the way to new vehicles. We can handle some projects that others won’t even touch,” said Scott. Whether you are looking for service, rentals, sales, or finance, make D&D Vehicle Sales Inc. your first choice. As an independent locally owned and operated dealership, they appreciate your communal support.

Library celebrates 100 years By Lori Larsen

The Camrose Public Library (CPL) has been feeding the minds, souls and imaginations of Camrose and area residents for 100 years, officially on Nov. 19. While celebrations of the Library’s contributions to Camrose and area have been occurring throughout the year, on Nov. 19, the official date the trustees came together back in 1919 to form the CPL board, the staff and volunteers of today’s library will be hosting a Centennial Celebration. The event will begin at 7 p.m. with words of welcome from dignitaries followed by a keynote speaker. Displays throughout the library will depict the journey of the library and how it became the hub of the community. Hors d’oeuvres will be served. The first library board consisted of Dr. F.A. Nordbye (chairman), Mrs. F.A. Brandt, J.W. Forde, Mrs. C.A. Killam and J.D. Saunders. The first librarian was Mrs. Lucy Fowler at a salary of $15 per month and the first location of the library was in the Camrose Town Hall. In May 1954, the library closed until 1956 when a new board was formed with Mrs. E.F. Marken as the librarian, reopening in February 1957. In 1962, the library moved to a new location on Main Street with a children’s section opening in June of that year. In 1980, construction began on the new library at its present location. Today the library is one of the main hubs in Camrose, providing a variety of services and programs for both adults and children. Board members consist of Elizabeth Luck (chair), Agnes Hoveland (City council representative), Trevor Miller (County council representative), Susanna Bruneau, Alan Corbett, Renee Greer, Katherine Schwaiger and Krista Larocque. Library guests can do research on one of the computer stations, make use of any of the items available for community use, participate in a variety of community programs or just enjoy a quiet read. “The Camrose Public Library strives to make a difference in people’s lives through connections, community engagement and inclusion, and we provide opportunities for all to share and grow through curiosity and creativity,” said CPL executive director Robyn Gray.

A new policing model in Camrose County will benefit residents with a 24-hour policing service. The RCMP is focused on looking for opportunities to provide better service to all the communities they serve. A pilot project was launched over the last three months and will continue. This project had the Camrose detachment working collaboratively with the Wetaskiwin office in an effort to improve policing service to Camrose County. Camrose RCMP’s schedule now mirrors Wetaskiwin RCMP’s watch schedule, providing for a timely response to calls for service in the Camrose RCMP Detachment area. “This model will provide better policing service to the Camrose County community with no increase in cost,” said Chief Superintendent Shahin Mehdizadeh, the district officer for Central Alberta District. “The partnership and coordination that already exists between Camrose and Wetaskiwin has only been enhanced.” A review of this pilot reveals that it has been successful in several areas. Camrose County residents now receive 24/7 police coverage. This translates to higher police visibility in the rural areas. This policing model has resulted in quicker response times to calls for service in Camrose and has led to the successful arrests of repeat offenders. It also provides for an improved work/life balance for the RCMP members in Camrose detachment. “Camrose County residents are justifiably concerned about increasing rural crime and the availability of the RCMP when crime occurs. It is council’s hope that this change will significantly improve the service to our residents,” said Reeve Don Gregorwich, prior to Cindy Trautman taking over as the reeve on Oct. 22. Camrose RCMP Detachment remains open with members and support staff continuing to provide detachment support. All aspects of detachment operations remain the same. The positive change is that the community will see 24-hour coverage.
