Aquatic Centre hours vary

By Lori Larsen

Recent upgrades to the City of Camrose Encana Arena boilers are an investment well worth the money, with a projected savings of $8,000 to $10,000 annually for the City. Facilities within the City are monitored daily through routine maintenance and upkeep to ensure that everything is operating at top efficiency, not only to reduce the risk of equipment or machinery failure, but to ensure the City is making every effort to be energy conscious. Recognizing that the installation of newer more efficient boilers would not only save the City costs, but also reduce greenhouse gas emissions, a decision was made to replace the old non-condensing boilers with high-tech industrial condensing boilers. “The original boilers were aging and were very inefficient, and maintenance costs were rising to keep them running,” explained City of Camrose Community Services general manager Ryan Poole. “It was time for them to be replaced with something more efficient and maintenance friendly.” According Poole, the original boilers had to be used at full capacity in order to be effective, and were approximately 75 per cent efficient in terms of

energy usage, whereas the new boilers are approximately 98 per cent efficient. The three new boilers operate sequentially and have higher heating efficiency, lower running costs, and were easily integrated with existing distribution lines for a cost-effective retrofit. On top of the savings in energy and maintenance costs, the City is completing the final documentation to the Municipal Climate Change Action Committee (MCCAC) in application for a refund for a portion of the installation costs, which, if successful, could mean 75 per cent back towards the $182,530 supply and installation costs. “This was an opportune time for collaboration,” said Poole. “We used ATCO Infrastructure Services to do the engineering study, documentation, provide the project plan and implementation to the MCCAC so we could get approval for the project (which took approximate-

ly six months for approval). Dee-Jay Heating and Plumbing (a locally owned company) was also instrumental with the installation of the boilers.” In addition, the City made some energy efficient changes to the ice making equipment, changing from six MBTU (one million British Thermal Units per hour) to 4.5 MBTU, which will also assist in heating the arena more efficiently. Poole explained further, “What used to happen was the machine that refrigerates the fluid that goes under the arena (referred to as an ice maker), which is similar to a huge refrigerator, gives off heat. We used to take that heat and help heat the building with it, but that made the ice maker work harder. Now we don’t need to do that anymore, because we now have these very efficient boilers, and the ice maker doesn’t have to work as hard any more.”

Former student releases new book By Murray Green

Former resident of Camrose and an alumni of the University of Alberta Augustana Campus Joel Lefevre wrote a book based on the story of his brother entitled Forcing the Hand of Justice: Seeking the Truth About My Brother’s Death. My Family’s Fight Against a Broken System. Joel Lefevre

Joel received his bachelor of arts degree in drama and grew up in New Sarepta before living in Camrose for six years. “I have published a new book detailing a true story which happened to my family and I back in New York years ago. The story made headlines on CNN, and the New York Times and Wall Street Journal,” shared Joel. Back on Oct. 18, 2011, Joel and his family’s life changed forever when his older brother and best friend Mathieu was hit and killed by the driver of a 28-ton crane truck. “Fighting this ‘David verses Goliath’ battle against the NYPD was long and heartbreaking, but I

Major Parker had a dream to fly By Lori Larsen

Many a child has looked up to the skies in marvel of the majestic maneuvers of the Canadian Forces Snowbirds and dreamt of being one of those pilots. Canadian Forces pilot Major Brett Parker, by his own admittance, was that young child. “I have always had the desire to fly since I was a kid. I would drag my parents to air shows back when I was in elementary school and junior high. Arguably, the jets were one of the biggest draw factors for me. Ultimately, what I always wanted to do was to fly airplanes and I have been very fortunate to be able to do so.” With a dream to eventually soar through the clouds, Major Parker joined the forces in 1999 under the Direct Entry Officer program. Born and raised in Edmonton, Parker has been what might be referred to as this area’s homegrown Snowbird. He has been involved in a few of the Snowbird demonstrations and fly overs that Camrose has been lucky enough to experience, and his brother Brian was with the Camrose Police Service years ago before joining Edmonton Police Service. “We have always had that connection for the last 20 years or so,” remarked Major Parker, adding that doing air demonstrations in Camrose made it one of the closest locations to his childhood home in Edmonton. He graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelors of Science in chemistry and physics, which afforded him the opportunity to join the Forces through the Direct Entry Officer Program, which essentially means he enrolled, paid for and successfully completed his four-year postsecondary education on his own accord, then applied to the Forces. When hired, he received some basic training, then was fairly quickly promoted to the rank of Officer. Parker received his Canadian Military wings training on the CT-155 Hawk (jet) at the 2 Canadian Forces Flying Training School (CFFTS) at 15 Wing Moose Jaw, where he ended up as an instructor on the Hawk. “I was a first tour instructor pilot on the Hawk and that is pretty much how I started my flying career, as a pilot,” which he said was something he became very passionate about and contributed a great deal towards his successful career. “I really enjoy teaching but I still had my eye on the prize, flying the F-18 and the Snowbirds. The Snow-

University of Alberta in ’99, but I technically applied to the military after graduating high school in ’92 and was originally told I wasn’t going to be a pilot. The military still offered me a scholarship out of high school, and I went to military school for two-and-ahalf years, but I was in as a navigator. I never touched an airplane as a navigator.” Parker said he knew in his heart that was not the path he wanted to take, he truly just wanted to be a pilot. Submitted Major Brett Parker, Canadian Forces Snowbird Number 7 pilot.

birds were probably the cream of the crop of what I wanted to do with my career.” He found beginning his pilot career as an instructor to be very beneficial, “From a discipline point of view, experience point of view and being able to relate to people and understand people as an instructor. Overall, it has made me a better pilot in general.” He went on to work in Dragon Flight as well as Standards, where he attained an A2 instructional category. “I have actually instructed three times in my career,” said Parker. “I did the Hawk, and was fortunate enough to go up and do the F-18, then came back to the Snowbirds. But then I actually went over to the UK and I was flying a newer version of the Hawk and was teaching there. When I came back from the UK in 2018, I went to 419 Squadron and I was teaching there again. It has been challenging, but it has its rewards too.” In 2010, Major Parker was successful in becom-

ing a pilot in the iconic Canadian Forces 431 Air Demonstration Squadron, best known as the Canadian Forces Snowbirds. His first tour with the Snowbirds ran from 2010 until 2015, when he completed four show seasons as Snowbird 5, 3 and 2. He was seeing his dream take flight. “My mother will attest to fact that I had the fighter jet models hanging from the ceiling and Snowbird posters, all signed, all over my walls.” He even knew all the names of the pilots and the formations. He was destined to become a Snowbird pilot. But it wasn’t an easy journey to the skies for Major Parker. “One of the things I love to do is school visits,” he commented. “My starting word for school visit is always ‘perseverance’.” Parker said he is not exactly the type of person to whom things come easy and is well aware of the trials and tribulations of failure and being told ‘no’. “I graduated from the

“So I decided as much as I appreciated the scholarship and the free education, I didn’t have the drive to do that (navigator).” He left military college and went back home to Edmonton where he began his post-secondary education at the University of Alberta. In his third year, he stopped by the recruiting office in downtown Edmonton and spoke with the flight commander. “I asked him what do I need to do in order to be reassessed as a pilot.” The commanding officer suggested that Parker finish his degree, then obtain his private pilots’ licence and get five hours of solo flight. “He told me he would then send me back to air recruit selection,” said Parker. “And that is exactly what I did. Then a year later, I went back to recruiting.” The rest is now Parker’s history in the skies. “I tell kids that sometimes you are going to be told ‘no’, but that is okay, that is a part of life. Or you are maybe not going to do

as well as you hoped to, but that is okay too, just continue to persevere.” Major Parker has once again taken up position with the precision flying team as Snowbird 7, outer left wing, bringing over 4,500 hours of military jet flying experience to the team. Upon return to the team, Parker was asked by the Snowbird boss where exactly he wanted to fly in the formation, to which Parker replied, ‘You tell me where you want me to be, and I will do it.’ “I am a firm believer that there isn’t one job, not withstanding the boss job which is a completely separate animal, that is more important than another. If you are good enough to fly one position, you are good enough to fly any position,” he noted, adding that every position has its challenges and every position has its unique contributions. He added that, although technically he had never f lown in the number 7 position before, he was actually teaching a junior pilot how to do that position on the other side of the formation, based on all he had learned f lying the other three positions he had f lown previously. “It has always been the drive for me–the motivation for me–to be a part of the Squadron, a part of this team. For me, the team has always been the pinnacle for me.” The pillar of the Squadron is to go out and demonstrate skill, professionalism and teamwork, and when watching the Snowbirds, it becomes obvious that each member of the team, from the ground up, take the motto very seriously. “The word teamwork is huge as we go to shows or fly over the City,” said Parker. “Obviously, a large portion of the kudos goes to the pilots, because we are the ones mainly out front and centre. But there is a huge group of people doing the work in order for us to do our job to go out in the summer. We don’t have what we have without a tremendous amount of teamwork from able bodied people across the spectrum–both from the deployed unit and the home unit.” All the work that goes into the stunning show of aerobatics simply eludes the everyday spectator, but for the Squadron, if not for every contributing member of the team, the show simply would not go on. “Everything we do is all about the air show season and being able to put the positive image in front of Canadians and making them proud of who they are and what we do.” Continued on page 5

Urban forests featured By Lori Larsen

The benefits of maintaining urban forests continue to be a topic of importance around the world. They reduce air pollution and provide oxygen, improve water filtration, store water, and reduce storm water runoff. On July 22 at 7 p.m., join University of Alberta, Augustana Campus assistant professor in sciences Greg King outdoors at the Augustana campus, in his presentation on the vital role urban forests play in all our lives. “This presentation will introduce you to Camrose’s urban forest via a guided tree tour in the Augustana neighbourhood,” explained Dr. King. “The presentation will provide details

and examples of key ecosystem services and their economic values, drawing from a complete inventory conducted in the neighbourhood in 2019.” The walk itself is approximately 1.2 kilometres and will include between eight to ten stops along the way. The presentation is estimated to last between 75 and 90 minutes. Attendees are reminded to maintain social distancing during the presentation and tour, and are encouraged to wear comfortable and appropriate clothing and footwear for outdoor activity. “Last week’s presentation (yoga) was a fantastic way to end the day,” said City of Camrose Greens-

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster The Urban Forest presentation will begin at the micro-orchard located beside the old church (Theatre) on Augustana campus.

These different parts of Yoga also allowed us to make connections to how we can integrate Yoga into our lives and promote environmental sustainability.” Henault said the evening presentation concluded with a calming and relaxing Yoga practice

made of various stretches and postures to help bring participants in tune with their bodies and forget about external stresses.

Film premieres at Bailey By Lori Larsen

In partnership with Typecast Anonymous, the Bailey Theatre will be presenting the film premiere of Where or When? on July 24, show time 7 p.m. The one-act play, written by Erica Toews and Jonathan Ewing, was filmed inside the Bailey Theatre and features Liam McKinnon, Kiara Corkett, Claire Aldridge and Grace Baker, and was directed by Mike Hicks. The film of the play centres around Frank, Julie, and Ma Miller, a family of lifelong farmers. After Pa’s death, Frank feels the responsibility of the farm becoming an increasing weight on himself. With Julie leaving for the city and Ma becoming more of a burden than a help, the pillars are crumbling around him. Suddenly, an old friend appears, who throws a wrench into

Royal families featured at Heritage Railway Station By Murray Green

The British royal family used Canada’s railway system in the past to view the sites in this country. Camrose Heritage Railway Station, 4407-47 Avenue, will be featuring displays entitled The Royals and the Railway on July 24 from 1 to 4:30 p.m., weather permitting. Visitors are encouraged to explore the displays of Royal visits to Canada, including several transcontinental tours made by railway. The event will feature costumed interpreters as members of the British Royal family from the 1920s era, including Queen Mary, wife to King George V. Guests are encouraged to dress in 1920s garden party attire. The first official Royal visit to Canada was made in 1860 by Queen Victoria’s son Albert Edward, Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII). The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall (later King George V and Queen Mary) made the first transcontinental Royal tour by railway in 1901, travelling by CPR from east to west across Canada and back. Edward, Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII), made official tours in 1919 and 1927, and also made several private visits to his Alberta ranch. The first reigning monarchs to visit Canada were King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, who visited from May 17 to June 15, 1939, excluding four days spent in the United States. On this trip, the Royals travelled west by CPR and then back east by CNR. They were greeted by enormous crowds and deemed the trip very

successful. After the trip, King George VI gave permission for the class of locomotives that pulled his train to be called the Royal Hudson and to display the Royal Crown on the running board skirts. This was the first and only time the Royal designation was used for a locomotive outside of Great Britain. Admission is free, but there will be special tea and cookie plates available for purchase, and donations are encouraged. Entertainment will be provided with music in the gardens. Garden tours will be available, as well as tours of the station and outbuildings. The Morgan Garden Railway (G-scale model railway) will be running. The White Elephant gift shop will be open. If you can’t attend at that time, regular hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday to Saturday, with the museum, grounds and gift shop open. The tea room is not currently open, but starting soon, they will be offering self-serve coffee, tea, pop and ice cream treats for purchase. This day will in part be held outdoors, so some events will be weather permitting. They are always looking for more volunteers to help with gardening, maintenance and other tasks. You can email canadiannorthern@ telus. net or stop by the museum to pick up a volunteer application form.

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Displays at the local museum show the various railway trips made by royal families over the years. The railway was used to travel from one end of the country to the other in the early days of the province.

These signs of the times made me laugh

Everything is relative. I used to think any temperature more than 28 Celsius was uncomfortably hot. Two weeks ago, when we hit 38 Celsius–the highest temperature I’ve ever experienced in more than seven decades– my perspective changed. “Oh, it’s only 30°C. Moderate.” Our July heat wave, followed by a week of more moderate temperatures, has left me with a severe case of ACS. That’s Absence of Creativity Syndrome–an underresearched condition especially prevalent in the summer. My summertime brain wants to be off-duty. I went through the motions of trying to fend off ACS but then capitulated. “It’s summer,” I thought and had a nap. And so–this week’s column is completely unoriginal. I’m just going to quote some things that made me laugh lately, with thanks to people who sent them to me. First, some terrible puns: I have a few jokes about unemployed people, but none of them work. Will glass coffins be a success? Remains to be seen. What’s the difference between a hippo and a zippo? One is really heavy and the other is a little lighter. Two windmills are standing in a wind farm. One asks, “What’s your favourite kind of music?” The other says, “I’m a big metal fan.” Hear about the new restaurant called Karma? There’s no menu—you get what you deserve. I went to buy some camouflage trousers yesterday, but couldn’t find any. What do you call a bee that can’t make up its mind? A maybe. I tried to sue the airline for losing my luggage. I lost my case. When everything is coming your way, you’re in the wrong lane. A cross-eyed teacher couldn’t control his pupils. She had a photographic memory, but never developed it. Is it ignorance or apathy that’s destroying the world today? I don’t know and I don’t care. I wasn’t originally going to get a brain transplant, but then I changed my mind. Which country’s capital has the fastest-growing population? Ireland. Every day it’s Dublin. The guy who invented the door knocker got a no-bell prize. I saw an ad for burial plots, and I thought: “That’s the last thing I need!” Need an ark? I Noah guy. I used to be indecisive, but now I’m not so sure. What did the grape say when it got stepped on? Nothing–but it let out a little whine. What do you call a super articulate dinosaur? A Thesaurus. Sleeping comes so naturally to me, I can do it with my eyes closed. And here are some signs that were photographed and posted online. They too made me laugh. Sign in a bookstore, which might be too true to be funny: “The post-apocalyptical fiction section has been moved to Current Affairs.” Sign in a coffee and bakery shop: “Skinny people are easier to kidnap. Stay safe. Eat cake.” Sign in a public washroom: “Wash your hands like you’ve been eating Doritos and you now have to take out your contacts.” Sign by a drive-through food place: “Buy one burger for the price of two and receive a second burger absolutely free!” Sign on a freeway overpass: “Who hates speeding tickets? Raise your right foot.” Sign in a store window: “If it’s in stock, we have it!” Sign by a public building: “Unattended children will be given an energy drink and be taught to swear.” And finally, a sign that reflects what is dear to the heart of the Camrose Booster: Shop local ’cause Amazon won’t sponsor your kid’s ball team. ***

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

We thank you for your interest in this feature and encourage your comments. New education

Help me understand the rationale for MLA Lovely cheerleading the pronouncement of a “new” innovative collaborative initiative between industry and post-secondary institutions in Alberta by advanced education minister Nicolaides (Camrose Booster, July 6). Alberta colleges, polytechnics and some colleges (that have been granted university status) have been successfully using the Canadian DACUM (Develop A Curriculum) model for more than 60 years. This model relies entirely upon input from business and industry to define and validate curriculum content, to systematically review curriculum content for every program of studies every few years, to sit on advisory committees annually or semi-annually, to provide sites for student field trips, and for instructional staff on educational leave to update skill sets. This model is a win-win model for students, employers and institutions, providing competency-based education. At the very least, this pronouncement is one more example of the UCP smoke and mirrors media campaign to continue the illusion of innovation. Somewhat more sobering is the painful realization that minister Nicolaides has absolutely no understanding of the Institutions in his portfolio; their role and mandate, their history and their internal quality con-

trol processes to ensure institutional effectiveness for students and community stakeholders. Given the UCP interference in K-12 curriculum development and validation under Premiers Redford and Notley; what credibility and possible motivation does this latest UCP “innovation” have? The model was new and innovative in 1965 (and highly successful over the past 60 years); resurrecting the model as “new” in 2021 is shameful and disingenuous (and probably expensive) for taxpayers. Best to rethink your voting options next time around folks; check out the Alberta Party and the NDP and their platforms. Jason Kenney has provided a myriad of reasons to make him a one-term Premier. Fool me once…shame on you; fool me twice…shame on me. Lynn Clark, Camrose Baffling group

The UCP is a baffling group. They thanked frontline healthcare staff for their work during the pandemic and now want to roll back nurses’ wages. This seems to be a trend with the UCP as they continue to trumpet that public services spending is “out of control” in Alberta. Let’s look at some other numbers. The UCP granted a $4.5 billon tax cut to profitable oil companies (never mind the $1.3 billion they bet on Trump winning

the latest US election so he could approve the Keystone XL pipeline). That is a total handout of $5.8 billion. Yes, billion with a “b”. In the last year, the Calgary Herald reported, Enbridge paid its executive team $35.74 million as an annual salary and bonuses. $17 million of that went to one man, their CEO. TC Energy’s executive team raked in $33.46 million that same year. I’m curious what the bonuses were for oilfield workers. You know, the people who actually do the “work”. Perhaps some of them could inform us. Yet it is the fault of “greedy” public servants like nurses, doctors, lab techs, and teachers that our province is in economic difficulty. I think companies that dish out north of $30 million a year to their executives don’t need the lavish tax breaks the UCP is showering them with. Perhaps our own MLA Jackie Lovely can tackle a real problem I see with financial waste…the gold-plated pensions for the provincial politicians making these disastrous decisions. Perhaps with the oil companies paying their fair share of taxes again (never mind not sticking us with the clean-up costs of their abandoned wells) and politicians taking a more reasonable pension, we could afford to pay workers in both the public and private sectors.

Bailey showing movie Casablanca By Lori Larsen

Of all the gin joints, the Bailey Theatre should be the one you walk into on July 23,

for the showing of the classic 1942 film Casablanca. Starring Humphrey Bogart (Rick Blaine) and Ingrid Bergman

(Ilsa Lund), this film is renowned for its daring (at the time) portrayal of a love triangle and tumultu-

ous times in the early stage of the Second World War. Rick’s world is turned upside down when his former lover Ilsa shows up at the café, hoping for Rick to

help her fugitive husband escape the Nazis. Treat yourself and a loved one or friend to a summer night out.

David Lefsrud of Viking owns a 1979 Ford F-150 Ranger Lariat truck. “I’ve had this truck for just over two years. This truck was originally purchased at my dad’s and his brother’s Ford dealership in Viking when it was new. My uncle would take a new truck every year when they came out and drive it for two or three months and then sell it,” recalled David. “So he sold this truck to a local guy in town, and he drove it until 1985. Then he parked it and it sat until a couple of years ago, when I finally got it out of him. I brought it home and did the restoration on it,” explained David. “I received a report on the vehicle that included where it was sold. It was a one-off truck that was equipped with a metric speedometer. This truck came out of the Twin Cities (St. Paul, Minnesota instead of Oakville, Ontar-

io), the only one with a metric speedometer.” The truck has a 460 engine. “It is all original. I had the motor out and had it redone. I had the frame off and blasted it. I put it back together and kept it as original as possible,” added David. “The attraction to this truck was simply the family connection to it. The truck was my uncle’s and I liked the family history of it, that is why I wanted it,” said David. “I added a custom back to it. My son Derek is a carpenter, so he made the tonneau cover with the Ford emblem in it. The cover adds a nice touch to it.” The sixth generation of the Ford F-Series, also known as the dentside Ford to enthusiasts, is a line of pickup trucks and medium-duty commercial trucks that were produced by Ford Motor Company from the 1973 to 1979 model years. Produced by Ford in North America, Argentina and Australia, this is the third and final generation of trucks derived from the 1965 Ford F-Series. “My son is collecting memorabilia from the old garage and dealership to add to the history. We are finding trinkets that they used to give out. We made up some stickers that they used to put on the vehicles when they sold them, so that it looks original and is a nice touch as well,” said David. The sixth generation marked several functional design changes and an expansion of the model line. In 1979, it was the last year that the 460 engine was available in a half-ton truck. Beginning with the F-100, this model has a shorter box and has an automatic transmission. The Ford F-150 most often has a longer bed, and has both automatic and manual transmission options. The drive type of the 1979 Ford F-150 can be either rear-wheel or four-wheel drive. The F-150 also has an engine size that begins at 3.3L and increases from there.

CPS cracks down on tinted windows By Lori Larsen

Some vehicle operators/owners may think it is esthetically pleasing to have tinted windows all the way around their vehicle. However, the law says differently, and for good reason. “Tinted windows make it extremely difficult for drivers to properly see out of a vehicle, especially during dark hours,” explained Camrose Police Service Traffic Enforcement officer Constable Sarah Day. “It can also cause an issue for pedestrians who are trying to cross a street to make eye contact with motorists.”

“Ole” Erik Olaf Heie February 11, 2009 ~ July 10, 2021 Erik Olaf (Ole) Heie, precious and beloved son and brother, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, July 10, 2021 at the age of 12, while running on the trails at Miquelon Lake Provincial Park. Favourite teammate, dedicated training partner, faithful friend and honourable competitor, Ole’s joy and kindness will be remembered and dearly missed. Ole was born on February 11, 2009 in Edmonton, Alberta, early in the morning and incredibly happy, to Robert and Leigh Heie of Kingman, Alberta. An early riser from the very beginning, Ole’s infectious smile and pure joy lit up the world around him throughout his entire life. Ole was gifted in so many things and his accomplishments throughout his young life were immeasurable. He was extremely musical, where his talents extended to the ukulele, guitar, flute and piccolo. He was a proud and independent farm kid, exploring the family land with full imagination at every opportunity, working hard and beginning to learn the family business of farming. He was a conscientious student, studying in French-Immersion and the dream pupil of every teacher’s career. Ole also loved to write. He was a very talented and thoughtful writer and had one day hoped to write a book. Cross country skiing, biathlon, running, swimming, mountain biking and road cycling became important passions and talents that Ole chose to pursue, gaining endless skills and friendships along the way. A lifelong member of the Camrose Ski Club and Jr. Vikings, nothing made Ole smile bigger than heading down the trail chasing the ‘big kids’ at an after-school practice! A driven and dedicated athlete, Ole recently crushed some impressive goals – powered by gummies, of course – reaching 1,000 km in just the first 54 days of the last ski season, making national news with his one-day 100-km ski, and completing his first ultra marathon this spring. Whether he whizzed by, blond hair flowing, on his roller skis at Mirror Lake, down the dipsy-doodles, or at a race in the mountains, Ole’s adventurous passion and positive spirit was infectious to all who had the honour of sharing the trail. From classmates to fellow athletes to coaches, Olympians, Strava and Instagram buddies around the world, teachers to music instructors, Ole was comfortable being himself and making a connection with any person, regardless of their age. He had a natural way of creating energy that motivated those around him and a determination to wish others well. Although usually one of the first to finish any race, Ole was always the last one to return to the wax tent, for he always diligently cheered every last racer across the finish line. To Ole, sport wasn’t just racing, it was for seeing your friends, celebrating gains, encouraging each other and enjoying the moments. He shared his philosophy as a proud brand ambassador for the Salomon athletic company and enjoyed interacting with other enthusiasts and ambassadors from around the world. Ole was his sister Ava’s biggest fan, best friend, and loudest cheerleader. As they grew up together, Ava and Ole were inseparable, touching nearly every blade of grass on the family farm, finding fun and working hard side by side with their parents. Together, Ole and Ava were the architects of many family travel adventures, creating cherished memories around the globe. Almost every family trip was planned by the two siblings around something in which they were interested, including their latest trip to Greece. Ole, with his family, discovered Greece, Costa Rica, Cuba, the Canary Islands, Amsterdam, Madrid, California (in a camper van). They enjoyed camping, canoeing and loving the great outdoors as a family throughout Canada and the US and especially beautiful Manitoba. Ole loved exploring and his ambitious nature took the Heies to experience the most amazing places, often in the quiet of an early morning, while everyone was still sleeping. From Ole-initiated family rides around home to magical runs (every single run with Ole was magical) towards Ancient Olympia, each moment with Ole was a treasured gift for his proud parents. Each and every day, Ole worked and dreamed towards one day competing in the Olympics and becoming a fifth-generation farmer. He continues to be an inspiration to all who knew and loved him. Ole’s kind character and love for the outdoors will be greatly missed. As we all navigate the heartbreaking grief of his passing, we hope that you will find comfort with Ole’s spirit on the trail and by sharing some gummies and memories of Ole with friends. Left to cherish Ole’s memory are his best friend and sister Ava Heie; parents Robert and Leigh; grandparents Jean Heie of Camrose and Randy and Gwen Usick of Minnedosa, MB; honourary grandparents John and Linda Cummings of Wetaskiwin, AB; great baba Mary Usick of Minnedosa; great-grandfather Art Bayes of Brandon, MB; aunts and uncles Nolan Heie of Calgary, Randi (Corey) Haley of Spruce Grove, and Kim (Mike) Speiss of Neepawa, MB; cousins Theo, Harrison, Wiley and Bodhi; his fellow Jr. Vikings athletes and countless friends. He was predeceased by his paternal grandfather, Donald Heie. A celebration of Ole’s amazing life will take place on Wednesday, July 21, 2021 at 10:30 a.m. • The celebration will be outdoors – where Ole loved to be. • If you wish, you can bring a lawn chair or a blanket to sit on. • Please park at Camrose Regional Exhibition to catch the Park & Ride to the trail. Shuttles will depart between 9:00 and 10:30 a.m., courtesy of Battle River School Division. • Guests are encouraged to wear their favourite running clothes in honour of Ole and are invited to join the family for a short run/walk around the Ole Loop prior to returning to Camrose Regional Exhibition for a reception and slideshow. • In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Camrose Ski Club in memory of Ole. • For those unable to be present at the celebration, the program will be recorded and shared at a later time.

Wilfred William Puddicombe June 18, 1943 ~ July 10, 2021 On July 10, 2021, Wilfred William Puddicombe went to be with the LORD at the age of 78. Wilf was the first of five children born to Stanley and Florence in Camrose, Alberta, on June 18, 1943. The Code/Puddicombe family farm, located southeast of Ohaton, was the perfect place to grow and learn about farming. Together with his four siblings, Bessie, Ruth, George and Grace, days were spent doing chores including milking cows, field work and fixing and operating machinery. He graduated from Bawlf School in 1961, and Baptist Leadership Training School the next year. In April 1972, Wilf married Pauline Wrigglesworth. He eventually took over the farm from his dad, and there they raised their two boys Clayton and Alton. Wilf didn’t start out as a full-time farmer, he long-haul trucked for years and also was on a road construction crew.   The years held many memories of family gatherings at the farm including many weddings. Wilf always said the farm was everyone’s home.  He took so much pleasure in gathering with the family and he was always known to be the last to leave the parties. A man of strong faith, Wilf was highly committed to the First Baptist Church throughout his life.  He taught many years of Sunday school and raised his family to know the love and saving grace of Christ.  He was also well-known throughout Camrose and surrounding area as he was a social person often stopping in at businesses for coffee, a soda or a cup of popcorn.   His lighthearted laugh and his lack of worry were well-known traits.  Wilf always responded to people questioning the weather or farming breakdowns with “Why worry, there is nothing you can change about it.” His quiet patience is what many will remember. In his retirement years of his life Wilf transitioned the farm to his son Alton and family. Overall, he lived and worked the vast majority of his life on the family farm. In the fall of 2018, Wilf and Pauline moved into the city of Camrose. This new city life couldn’t take the farmer out of Wilf as he drove back to the farm many days to check in on things right up until the week before his passing. Even in the last years of struggling with his health, Wilf loved to get out driving and the new slower pace of life allowed for Sunday drives with Pauline exploring back roads and small towns. The pandemic had him driving around Camrose looking for anyone with which to have a window coffee chat. He loved his people! Wilf was predeceased by his parents, sister Ruth Keller, brotherin law Richard Feil and nephew Danny Feil. He is lovingly remembered by his wife Pauline, sons Clayton (Tamara) and Alton (Jessica), and his grandchildren Dalton, Owen, Mercedes, Bennett, Simon, Cade, and Abby, plus extended family and friends. A Funeral Service was held at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, July 17, 2021 from the Rose City Baptist Church, 6406 44b Ave with Rev. Dave Cawley officiating.  If family and friends so desire, memorial contributions in Wilfred’s memory may be made in lieu of flowers to the Camrose Food Bank, or The Gideons International in Canada.

Patricia Joan Tilbrook 1950 ~ 2021 Daughter of Russell and Joan Smith It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Patricia Joan Tilbrook (nee Smith). Pat passed away peacefully on the morning of Monday, July 5, 2021. A dedicated nurse for 40 years, Pat’s nursing career showed in her compassion and care for others. She always took care of people, unselfishly reaching out and helping others, always putting others before herself right up to the end of her life. A lover of dialogue and advice, Pat was a “talker” and loved to engage in good conversation with people. She had a smile that could be seen for miles and a laugh that could fill a room. Pat was an enormously proud wife, mother and grandmother, who cherished her two grandchildren dearly. She spent many years with Bruce, camping and exploring Canada in their trailer, going for drives to see new scenery, and walking. Pat was a true Smith, as she so enjoyed playing cards and games with her family. One of her favourite things was teaching her grandchildren new card games and watching them beat her! Pat was born on February 21, 1950. She is lovingly remembered by her husband of 49 years, Bruce; two daughters, Shauna (Dean) and Heather (Gord); two grandchildren, Noah and Makynna; her brother, Doug (Karen); her sister, Barb (Brian); and five nieces and nephews.

Kenneth Michael Roth December 29, 1933 ~ July 13, 2021 Kenneth Michael Roth was born on December 29, 1933, in the Heisler area home of his parents, Bill and Mary Roth. He was born the oldest of eight children, seven boys and one girl. Ken, beloved husband, dad, grandpa and great-grandpa, passed away peacefully at Daysland Health Centre on July 13, 2021, at the age of 87 years. Ken grew up on the family farm and received his education in the one-room schools of the day, in the pasture playing baseball and on the frozen slough, playing hockey. He left school after grade 10 and began his working life as a farm hand for various farmers in the area. He also spent many years running equipment for the municipality, building and maintaining roads throughout Flagstaff County, but he was a farmer at heart. So, shortly after he and Christa were married, they purchased a farm in the Spring Lake area and spent the next 40-plus years building a home and a life together. Even after he retired to Daysland in 2005, Ken would spend nearly every day at the farm, always busy doing something. During his younger years, Ken was an avid sportsman, playing goalie for the local hockey team, and he spent many years playing and coaching baseball. When his grandchildren became involved in sports, he was sure to be there to cheer them on, and often was the chauffeur. He often said watching kids play hockey or baseball, or any sport, was better than any professional team that you can watch on TV. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 58 years, Christa; his daughter Judy (Bob) Hayes; sons Ken (Kathy) and Dan (Sonja); ten grandchildren Michael (Kim), Erica (Travis), Aaron (Sophia), Carley, Jordan, Jessica, Lindsey (Avery), Benjamin, Brian and Emily; and two great-grandchildren Stephenie and Victoria. Ken also leaves to mourn five brothers Roger, Stan (Cindy), Larry, Doug and Randy (Barb); brothers-in-law Al Hunt, John (Liz) Holt, Richard (Laurie) Holt, and Harold (Beatrice) Holt; sisters-in-law Linda A. Roth, Gail Roth and Edith Gehlert; and many more relatives and friends, who will forever hold his memories close to their hearts. Ken was predeceased by his parents Bill and Mary; his mother and father-in-law Leonard and Erna Holt; his brother Gordon and infant brother Joseph; his sister Sharon Biollo; his niece Jane Birkjar; sisters-in-law Irma Hunt, Truus Roth, and Linda L. Roth; and brothers-in-law Art Gehlert, John Biollo and Ron Clennin. A Funeral Service will be held at 11:00 a.m., Tuesday, July 20, 2021, from Our Lady of the Prairies Roman Catholic Church. Interment will take place in the Spring Lake Cemetery. If family and friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to Daysland Hospital Foundation, Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation, Edmonton Firefighter Burn Treatment Society, or the charity of one’s choice. To send condolences, please visit www.burgarfuneralhome.com.

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.

Earnshaw memorial located at museum By Murray Green

Camrose will be honouring RCAF flying officer Ken Earnshaw with a memorial project at the Camrose and District Centennial Museum. “We encountered location roadblocks, which forced us to delay our planned May 2020 unveiling. We are determined to see this through. Earnshaw was not only a hero, he was a role model,” said Neil Leeson, of the Camrose and Area Men’s Shed organization that is spearheading the project. “Since then, we encountered many more roadblocks, not the least of which was COVID-19. Recently, we have been given permission to erect our monument at museum grounds, specifically directly in front of the Likeness School, which was relocated from south of Ohaton to the museum in 1966, and was the start of Earnshaw’s education journey prior to high school in Camrose and teacher’s certificate at Edmonton Normal School in 1939. We know what Ken achieved. We want everyone to appreciate his exceptional history,” added Leeson. “Thanks to a generous donation by a Camrose County resident, we recently acquired a huge rock, which will be erected at the museum with assistance by the City of Camrose. When erected upright, it will stand nearly eight feet above ground and closely resemble the iconic pyramidal Matterhorn Mountain of the Swiss Alps. We believe it will serve a lasting and fitting tribute to Ken’s valour, and we will spend this summer and fall preparing it. He could have gone back to Canada because he was done his tour, but when he was asked to help in a secret mission, he readily accepted. It is worth the

roadblocks for us to honour him.” The new target for unveiling is Tuesday, May 17, 2022 (79th anniversary of the RAF Dambusters Raid of May 16 and 17, 1943). Kenneth Earnshaw was born in Bridlington, Yorkshire, England on June 23, 1918, the son of Joseph George Earnshaw and Janet Hannah Green. The Earnshaw family moved to Canada in 1919, and settled in the Thirlmere district, northeast of Ohaton. Joseph and Hannah Earnshaw were farmers, and Ken, along with his sister Nora, grew up in the rural community. Ken attended public school at Green Grove, a rural Alberta school, and high school in Camrose. During 1938 and 1939, he enrolled in Edmonton Normal School, where he obtained his teaching certificate. From Sept. 1, 1939 until June 30, 1941, Ken taught at Whitebrush School near Bashaw. Mary Gladys Heather and Ken Earnshaw were

married in Regina on Nov. 7, 1941, while Ken was undergoing RCAF air observer training. Earnshaw had participated in 30 combat operations as a navigator prior to joining #617 Squadron on April 29, 1943. During the early morning hours of May 17, 1943, Lancaster ED 925, while participating in the Dambusters raid on the Mohne Dam, was set on fire and crashed about

three miles southwest of Soest, Germany. Bomb aimer F/Sgt J.W. Fraser, and rear gunner P/O A.F. Burcher DFM both survived the crash, and were taken prisoners of war. The highly successful raid on the Mohne Dam claimed Earnshaw’s life. He was 24 years old. He is interred at the Rheinberg War Cemetery in Germany.

Submitted The Ken Earnshaw Memorial Project is continuing at the Camrose and District Centennial Museum. Men’s Shed members gather around a Memorial Rock delivered by the City of Camrose. The proposed location is in front of Likeness School (to be approved for excavation by Alberta One Call). Memorial Rock was donated by Leon Marek of Camrose County.

Looking for a good name for your boat? How about: • Aboat Time • Feeling Nauti • Pier Pressure • Cirrhosis of the River • Aqua-holic • Unsinkable II Be careful what you do in the garden. The potatoes have eyes, the corn has ears and the beanstalk. It’s so hot that when my husband and I do yardwork together, I start a fight so I can storm off into the air conditioning. Whenever I am with my family and someone says, “Wow, you have such a beautiful family!” I reply, “Well, we left the ugly ones at home.” I asked an old man, “Even after 95 years, you still call your wife Darling, Honey and Love. What’s the secret?” The old man said, “I forgot her name ten years ago, and I’m scared to ask her what it is!” I was behind a grandmother who was apparently visiting Starbucks for the first time. The barista said, “Can I get a name for your drink?” The grandmother looked very confused and slowly said, “I guess just call it Bob?” Why is grammar nostalgic? We find the present tense and the past perfect. I was sitting on an airplane behind a mother and her young son. He kept looking around and making funny faces at me. After a few minutes, I got tired of his antics, so I said, “When I was young, my mother told me that if I made an ugly face often enough, it would stay that way.” The little brat replied, “Well, you can’t say you weren’t warned.” Parents today: “Text me when you get there, text me the names of the kids who are there, text me when you’re coming home.” Parents in the ’80s: “Bye.” Wouldn’t it be great if we could put ourselves in the dryer for a short time and come out wrinkle free and two sizes smaller? I hate it when people accuse me of lollygagging when I’m quite clearly dilly dallying.

Camrose housing sales remain strong By Murray Green

The housing sales in Camrose have remained relatively strong this spring and summer. “It appears that the increased boom of activity we saw in the first quarter has not slowed down. There were 111 reported MLS sales in the City of Camrose in 2021 quarter two, which is the best second quarter we have seen since 2016, which reported 113 sales. The average sale price is up, the median sale price is up, and the average days on market is down. The local residential market remains active and with strong demand and low interest rates, this trend is sure to continue in

the short term. In addition, the lifting of most health restrictions should help to further stimulate the local economy as most businesses are finally returning to their pre-pandemic business operations,” said Jacobus Slabbert, of the Camrose office of HarrisonBowker Valuation Group. In the second quarter, the average sale price in 2021 was $326,283, up 6.83 per cent from last quarter. The rolling 12-month average increased by 2.61 per cent. The median sale price was $298,000 which is up 3.65 per cent from last quarter, but up 8.36 per cent compared to the same time last year. The

rolling 12-month median increased by 2.05 per cent. There were 111 residential sales in the City of Camrose in quarter two, which is two more sales than what was recorded in the first quarter, but 14 sales more than 2020 in the same time period. There were 25 sales of more than $400,000 in the second quarter, which matched last quarter. “To put this in perspective, in the first six months of 2021, we have had 50 sales over $400,000, which surpasses the 39 sales reported in all of 2020.” The average days on market were 78, 25 days down from last quarter.

Central Agencies Home of the Week

Acreage close to Camrose

Some people wake up feeling like a million bucks. I wake up feeling like insufficient funds. Dating after 40 is like trying to find the least damaged thing at a thrift store that doesn’t smell. What’s the hardest thing to learn when riding a bike? The pavement. This chef on TV just said, “Where there’s fat, there’s flavour.” I know he was talking about food, but I still took it as a compliment. If a drummer comes out of retirement, will there be repercussions? My wife asked if I could clear the kitchen table. I had to get a running start, but I made it! I just did a week’s worth of cardio after walking into a spiderweb. What do you call a snobbish criminal going downstairs? A condescending con descending! All the baby books tell you that infants need to eat every two to three hours, but they fail to mention that this continues until the child moves out of the house. Nobody has any idea what you’re supposed to do in a gazebo, yet we keep right on building them and walking around like we know. Tonight’s Lotto Max jackpot is a full tank of unleaded gas and one sheet of 3/4” plywood. Some people believe that if you press on the gas pedal and the brake pedal of your car at the same time, you take a screenshot of the dashboard. My family says I talk in my sleep, but nobody at work has ever mentioned it. If we can make one person smile, pee their pants a little or, even better, spit out their drink, the job of Booster Banter is complete for the week!

Enjoy life in the country approximately 10 minutes from the conveniences of the City with this 33-acre property located just south of Camrose on Highway 21. The five-bedroom home has plenty of room for a growing family that wants to enjoy the peace of country living where the children grow up roaming around wide open spaces and can attend the highly rated K-12 New Norway School. The upper floor has had many renovations. Warm vinyl plank flooring smoothly transitions from the dining area to the kitchen where stunning quartz counter tops, stainless steel appliances and cherry-coloured cabinets set the stage for entertaining. A cozy wood stove in the dining/sitting area is perfect for enjoying at dinner. Double french doors lead off the kitchen to a sunken living room that is highlighted by vaulted ceilings, skylights, large windows and a stone front gas fireplace. Patio doors lead out of the living room onto the private patio area.

Sascha Dressler A spacious laundry/mud room is conveniently located off the kitchen. A large master suite with unbelievable four-piece en suite give home owners a peaceful place to retreat at the end of the day. Three more bedrooms and a three-piece main bathroom complete the main living floor. The finished basement offers a perfect place to have family gatherings, with a large rec room complete with a bar and an adjoining area that could easily house a pool table. A good-sized bedroom and three-piece bathroom could be an older child’s own private space. A large detached garage with an attached 24’ x 24’ shop means plenty of room for vehicles and the space to do your own repairs. This incredible acreage, located at 45247 Highway 21, with pavement all the way is close enough to City amenities to be convenient, but far enough away to provide serenity. It is priced at $475,000.
