A local anonymous donor has made a very generous donation, allowing the City of Camrose Bus program to purchase a brand new bus for their three-day-a-week fixed route service. The bus being replaced has been purchased by the Rose City Handi-Van Society, which in turn will allow for an even greater level of specialized transportation service available and provided by the Society. Last week, the used bus was re-decalled and, as of this week, will also be serving local residents. The Rose City Handi-Van Society is a non-profit, charitable organization and, as such, relies on municipal funding, ridership fees and donations to operate its service. It is always looking for ways to maintain a high level of service at a reasonable rate. The service is valued by users with diverse mobility issues.

Council considers amendments to 2022 Capital Budget By Lori Larsen

City of Camrose council heard a report on amendments to the 2022 Capital Budget to reflect some major changes in City construction projects. “As council may be aware, each year we plan road and sidewalk projects in our capital budget,” explained City of Camrose manager Malcolm Boyd. “When the 2021/22 Capital budget was prepared, administration tried to sequence the capital projects in a logical manner. “We had hoped to do some underground infrastructure assessment work in 2021, with the goal of confirming that it was sound enough prior to completing surface work. The assessment work was unable to get completed in 2021, so that had a cascading effect. At the same time, the construction schedule for the work on the new public works facility is now known, so we are wanting to address the 51 Avenue work near Public works in 2022. “We are here today with a report to address

those changes to the capital plan.” City of Camrose infrastructure general manager Kris Johnson presented a report to council outlining the specific details of the changes impacting the 2022 Capital Budget. “The three major changes within the Capital Budget are to advance one large construction project along 51 Avenue in order to tie it into the construction work at the Public Works site and the access to improvements there.” Johnson said the second changes involved deferring a number of smaller construction projects out of the 2022 approved budget to allow further investigation of the underground infrastructure before proceeding with surface rehabilitations. The last change on which Johnson reported is to increase the budget for one project involving the replacement of the monolithic sidewalk on both sides of 65 and 66 Street from Enevold Drive to Marler Drive. “Currently, the scope

was to do just spot concrete repairs, but with the recent assessment of the sidewalk conditions, we want to do full replacement of sidewalks in that location.” The total cost of the proposed revised 2022 Capital Budget (roads and sidewalks) is $3,274,400. The total cost of the proposed additions to the 2022 Capital budget is $1,375,000. The total cost of the proposed subtractions from the 2022 Capital Budget is $1,370,000. Council directed administration to prepare a report to be brought back during the January 17 Regular Council Meeting. Administration plans to present all local improvement bylaws for first reading by the February 7 meeting, with the goal of having second and third readings of all bylaws complete by no later than March 21, allowing administration to tender and award construction contracts in April and proceed with construction in May.

You call this a snap?

If the forecast is accurate, you are reading this on a balmy day just a few degrees below zero. On the other hand, no forecast is required for me to know that as I’m writing this, the outside temperature is minus 26, heading towards minus 32. And I have to go out today. The prospect does not fill me with joy. “Cold snap?” More than a week of bitingly cold days does not feel like a snap. Meanwhile, as frequently happens during a cold snap, the indoor heating system is not quite able to cope. The indoor temperature sometimes creeps up to 17 or 18 degrees–woo hoo! I’m wearing layers indoors as well as outdoors. Plumbing and heating people are the most popular folks around. ***

Someone told me that in Scandinavian countries, they say there is no such thing as bad weather. There is only inappropriate clothing. This was not a comforting thought as I dressed to go outside, knowing I would have to walk between several destinations. More than once, I’d be outside walking in the cold for at least (shudder) ten minutes. As I put on layers and added more layers of clothing, I felt like the puffy Michelin man. I had on so many layers, I could hardly lower my arms. I waddled outside into the cold. Hah! A benefit of wearing a mask. It can help keep your face warm. One problem. Your glasses fog up. I gave up and stashed the glasses, hoping I wouldn’t bump into anything while walking in a world where everything looked fuzzy. I’d plotted out my route between several downtown places I had to stop. Minimum number of steps and minutes between walking destinations. I learned that, despite my layers, it took just five minutes for my toes to start protesting the cold. Sigh. Gritted teeth. Nothing lasts forever. This too shall pass. If the forecast is correct, you are reading this on a day with a civilized January temperature. Hope you’re savouring it! ***

Speaking of the Michelin man, you might be interested to know that he’s been around since 1894. He’s 128 years old! According to Google, company founder Edouard Michelin saw a pile of tires and said to his brother André, “Look, with arms it would make a man.” The original Michelin man was not the cozy friendly figure we see today. Google says, “He once resembled a slightly creepy mummy-like figure and was often seen raising a goblet in his ads with the words ‘Nunc est Bibendum’. That’s Latin for, ‘Now is the time to drink.’ The goblet was filled with nails and broken glass, which was meant to show how tough and hardy Michelin tires were, and that they would not puncture that easily.” In the early days, the figure who became the Michelin man was depicted as a gladiator, a kick boxer, a nimble ballroom dancer in the Italian market, and even a pleasure-seeking ladies’ man, who took to beer and cigars. The beer and cigars were added in an attempt to appeal to wealthy upper-class folks, who had the money to purchase a car. But in the 1920s, the Michelin man toned down. He took on a more refined, family-friendly image. He quit alcohol, stopped smoking and even started taking up sports. In some ads, he’s seen running and riding a bicycle, while casually flinging tires like frisbees. He’s lost weight and looks more muscular than ever. Google says, “In a poster from the early 1900s, he is even pictured helping a family with a flat tire by donating the biggest, choicest tire from his own mid-section, as a blue sky shows through the hole left in his abdomen.” Awww. Okay, enough distraction. Time for me to layer up and head out into the cold. Sigh. Cold “snap”? Hmp.

Once again, Arnold Malone has nailed it. In his opinion piece on page 17 of the January 4 Camrose Booster, he deftly summarizes the balance required to live in a civilized society. He quotes Margaret Mead (whom I had the privilege of meeting in 1965): “Helping someone through difficulty is where civilization begins.” Could I paraphrase this to say that is what we mean when we claim Camrose to be a compassionate community? Arnold’s article should be required reading for anyone engaged in the vaccination debate. Maybe engaged in any debate around all the “pro and anti” issues becoming more and more common in our increasingly polarized society. He does not attack anyone. He simply appeals to the best nature of all of us to consider not just ourselves, but our neighbours who are affected by our choices. Just as we are by theirs. Well done, Arnold. Yours is a voice of reason among the cacophony of “me first” demanders. Peter LeBlanc, Camrose We need better

In his year end review, Premier Jason Kenney, being the perpetual liar that he is, had to provide Albertans with one more. He claims BC is allowing coal to be safely mined and we should allow our eastern slopes to be coal mined also. What he ignores is the fact that in March 2021, we learned that Teck Coal Limited pleaded guilty to

polluting waters in BC and Montana, and were fined $60 million by Fisheries Canada. Can you imagine what would happen if we allowed this lame-brain Kenney scheme and polluted the Mississippi River, when its headwaters are the Milk River in southern Alberta? Our hero Peter Lougheed was smart enough to put protection on our mountains to make certain that nothing like this would ever happen. The farmers and ranchers in southern Alberta are to be saluted for taking a stand against this Reform Party fool. Alan Spiller, formerly of Camrose Different opinions

The past two years have convinced me that there are a few people who think they have a right to belittle others who think differently from themselves (and this is after a 10-year campaign to fight bullying). I just want to say that I think they are wrong, and that intelligent and freethinking people will allow others to think freely for themselves. Regrettably, it could be said that many freedom lovers have allowed a belittling, self-righteous attitude to interfere with their free-thought process, under the fake fear or pandemic propagated by adults acting like spoiled children, in my opinion, and these adults seem unable to decipher truth from lies, yet willingly agree with lockdowns, support vaccine test-trials that showed 80 per cent side effects, even death, and wear an

impractical face covering, which limits one’s ability to breathe fresh air and be healthy. My hope is that people will not live in fear, but be able to reevaluate whether their position has merit or excellence and is not just repeating a false view spouted by self-righteous puffs of smoke. It is also nonsensical to wear a face-rag and hope to not spread a virus. In any case, I and others have the right before God and man to have our opinions regarding our lawful freedoms and health treatments. Many reputable doctors like Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, Dr. Tom Cowan, and Dr. Vladimir Zelenkow believe COVID-19 and most viruses can be cured if given proper treatment, along with vitamins that increase one’s immune vitality. Many hospitals putting people on respirators and giving them remdesivir (a high-priced drug treatment) has been somewhat proven to decrease their chance of survival. Furthermore, what the government spokespeople have called a “safe vaccine” is better called “inoculation”, for the germs put into these inoculations (being graphite and other ills) can change daily because they are under an emergency mandate and not subject to the safety trials used in years gone by. Also, millions will die due to these emergency approved inoculations called vaccines–possibly a million have already died. Tina Kawalilak, Camrose County

Envisioned by the mayor is the development of the new IGA site to accommodate what is presently rumored as being a Wendy’s/Tim Horton’s combination; the commencement of phase two of Christensen Developments’ condo project with a further 26 units; the opening of Humpty’s Restaurant in the former Video View Building; and the move of Peavey Mart to a new location.

50 Years Ago This Week – from Jan. 11, 1972 edition • Arnold Fredlund, District Governor of Lions Clubs will attend the next meeting of the Camrose club.

Lougheed ready to rattle, strum By Murray Green

The Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre begins with children’s show by Rattle and Strum. The 2 p.m. January 16 show is for children of all ages and involves dancing, clapping, singing and playing. This performance is free, but you must have a ticket. Canadian comedian Brent Butt will be bringing the laughter back to the Lougheed Centre stage on June 18 for a 7:30 p.m. show. His show originally schedule for January 20 has been changed. “Due to rapid changes with the COVID-19 Omicron variant and a large variety of new health restrictions in other provinces, Brent Butt has made the difficult decision to postpone his Western Canadian shows. Ticket holders are invited to hold onto their tickets and use them for the June show. However, if you need a refund for that performance, contact the box office by phone at 780-608-2922. Tickets continue to be on sale for this performance,” said Marketing and Sponsorship coordinator Jeff Heyden-Kaye. Butt is the creator of the hit television show Corner Gas. The Bouey Doucet Violin and Piano Concerto is slated for January 22 at 7:30 p.m. Emerging violinist Christina Bouey and Acadian pianist Pierre-André Doucet team up for a show you won’t want to miss. Diyet and the Love Soldiers concert on January 28 has been moved to Thursday, April 14. Diyet brings her Yukon style of music, including alternative country, folk, roots and traditional Indigenous northern life to Camrose. They also have an Augustana speaker series on January 27 at 6 p.m. that will now be virtual. The Churchmice Players will be performing Beauty and the Beast (the Broadway Musical version), with evening shows on February 3 to 6 and February 9 to 12 at 7:30 p.m. Matinees will be held on February 6 and 12 at 1:30 p.m. Country music star Tebey will be at the Lougheed Centre on February 17 for a 7:30 p.m. show. Tebey is a platinum-selling artist, award-winning producer and accomplished songwriter, with six number one songs in his repertoire of hits.

The Nordlys Film and Arts Festival board regretfully announced, through a newsletter to membership, that the 2022 Nordlys Film and Arts Festival scheduled for the Family Day long weekend in February has been cancelled in an effort to ensure the health and well-being of everyone, and to preserve the financial strength of the organization for future festivals. The board made the difficult decision based on the rising number of Omicron virus cases, and the fact that mandatory regulations and restric-

tions placed on eating and drinking would make presenting the festival more difficult and less dynamic. Because so many expenses take place well in advance of the festival (film licensing, marketing, program design, etc.), cancelling the Festival now will also minimize financial risk. Stop by the Bailey Theatre Box Office the week of January 10 to receive a full refund for weekend passes already purchased at the Bailey Theatre.

By Lori Larsen

Alberta Health Services is encouraging people to start the New Year with a new approach to healthy eating. First and foremost, AHS recommends that when choosing to improve the way you eat, never compare yourself to others, because what works for someone else one may not work for you. Begin by taking a good look at what a typical day of eating looks like for you. Write a food journal or use a food tracking device to document everything you eat and drink throughout the day. Eating habits can often change on weekends, so documenting those days as well can be all telling. Your journal, along with your journey to healthier eating, is personal and does not need to be shared with others. It is intended to make you totally aware of exactly what you are eating and where small changes can be made to benefit your health.

Here are some more tips provided by AHS to get you started on your path toward healthy eating: • Choose a small goal that is important to you. For example, maybe you only eat vegetables once or twice a week. You know you can increase that amount with a few changes in your routine. • Break your goal down into smaller goals. You can start with one meal or snack. For example, replace an unhealthy snack with carrots or celery sticks to increase the amount of vegetables you eat in a day. • Make your goal even more specific. You can do this by setting a SMART goal: Specific: I will choose vegetables for an afternoon snack, five out of seven days of the week. Measurable: I will choose vegetables I like (such as carrots, celery or cucumber) as a snack Monday to Friday. Attainable: I can reach

Bailey Theatre adds Sunday series By Murray Green

The Bailey Theatre Society is launching a Sunday Series that features some local talent. “The Sunday Series brings music and light into our winter months. The concerts are a reason to bring us together to celebrate and connect with others in our community, to enjoy music that soothes the soul,” said president Barb Stroh. “It features 15 musicians in total, and is a chance for the Bailey to promote local legends and Canadian artists. It is something unique and different, whether you can join us at the theatre or via livestreaming of these events. Most of these performers are new to the Bailey Stage in these new and fresh combinations. They will be featured in a cabaret setting.”a The opening show will be the Time Travellers. Local jazz band Time Travellers will be playing music from the past at the

Bailey Theatre on January 23 at 3 p.m. The band consists of Erik Olson on piano, Marshall Tindall on saxophone, Art Fadum on bass and Steven Hartman on drums. They will take you on a musical journey of instrumental jazz beginning in the 1900s to current times. “We have selected, on average, two tunes per decade from the 1900s up until the present day. We begin with ragtime classics and progress chronologically to blues jams, swing tunes, jazz standards, jazzy movie themes, and jazz-infused pop songs,” said Erik. “Most of the repertoire will be familiar to the audience, and we hope it will bring smiles to faces and get toes tapping.” Their concert includes jazzy and pop movie hits as well. Some of the composers to be featured are Scott Joplin, George Gershwin, Duke Ellington, Henry Mancini, Sting, Neil Young, and Jon Batiste.

Aim for 24 hours a day of healthy you By Lori Larsen

Women should lift weights

The global pandemic has led to a renewed interest in health and exercise. People have turned to various exercise programs within their homes, including lifting weights. Women are often reluctant to incorporate weight lifting into their exercise routines, which is unfortunate because lifting weights has many benefits Jane Yardley, for men and women alike. Physical Education, Historically, weight liftUniversity of Alberta Augustana Campus ing (also known as resistance training) was seen as a pastime for elite athletes trying to improve their sport performance. However, research throughout the 1980s and 1990s gradually started showing the many benefits of resistance exercise for the general population. Lifting weights is good for the heart, blood vessels, brain and immune system, in addition to providing strength and stability in the bones, muscles and joints. Yet the gender divide is often visible in any gym, where many women are still hesitant to lift weights. Over the years, I have received similar responses when asking women why they won’t lift weights: “I don’t want to get big.” This concern is unfounded. For most people, it takes a lot of effort, combined with the right diet and a specific type of training program for muscle mass gains to make a change in size perceptible. Rather, a well-designed program will improve most aspects of health and well-being, while also increasing aesthetic appeal by tightening and toning the body. With so many benefits, why put the emphasis on women? The answer is twofold: muscle mass and bone density. Low muscle mass increases the risk of frailty. Frailty decreases quality of life, makes individuals more susceptible to illness and death, and increases the risk of needing long-term care at a younger age. It is estimated that one in four Canadians over the age of 65 can be classified as frail, with frailty being roughly 50 per cent more common among women than among men. On average, women have lower muscle mass than men, and its loss with age decreases the ability to live independently as activities of daily living become difficult. Resistance exercise at any age decreases the rate of muscle loss with aging. Where bone density is concerned, women lose bone density faster than men, especially once they pass menopause. As a result, women are four times more likely to develop osteoporosis than men. As bone density decreases, the risk of bone fractures from any type of impact increases. What may initially seem like an innocuous fall (the risk of which is increased by lower strength and muscle mass) can become life-altering. Lifting weights helps build bone density in the early years (up until around age 30) and decreases the rate at which it is lost thereafter. Therefore, due to their increased risk of low muscle mass and bone density, women stand to gain greater long-term benefits than men with this type of training. The greatest benefits of lifting weights are obtained by starting early and continuing throughout life, but studies of older adults show that regular resistance training can still increase strength, stamina, and functional mobility. Even a handful of small weights and resistance bands used at home can be enough, and a few sessions with a personal trainer can start you out on this journey to improve your future health, mobility, and independence. So, women, it’s never too late to start. Whether you are staying home for your exercise or headed back to the gym (eventually), get lifting–your body is worth it.

We are all given 24 hours every day to invest in whatever we can to make our lives healthier, happier and more fulfilled, but more often than not, by the time we get to the 24th hour, we have a difficult time accounting for the day. Now, more than ever, it is vital that we take control over how we use those precious 24 hours and slice out time to take care of ourselves. According to the 24 -Hour Movement Guidelines (sponsored by CSEP [Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology/SCPE], Public Health Agency of Canada, Queen’s University and Participaction), adults age 18 years and over should participate in a range of physical activities (e.g. weight bearing/non-weight bearing, sport and recreation) in a variety of environments (e.g. home/work/ community; indoors/outdoors; land/water) and contexts (e.g. leisure, transportation, occupation, household) across all seasons. As well as staying active, it is recommended that adults age 18 years and over should limit sedentary behaviours to eight hours or less per day, which includes no more than three hours of recreational screen time and breaking up long periods of sitting as often as possible. In order to get the maximum benefit out of the 24 hours of a day, adults should get seven to nine hours of good-quality sleep on a regular basis, with consistent bed and wake-up times. Recommended activity for adults aged 18-64 includes: • moderate to vigorous aerobic physical activities such that there is an accumulation of at least 150 minutes per week • muscle strengthening activities using major muscle groups at least twice a week, and • several hours of light physical activities, including standing. Recommended activity for adults age 65 years and older includes: • Moderate to vigorous aerobic physical activities such that there is an accumulation of at least 150 minutes per week • Muscle strengthening activities using major muscle groups at least twice a week • Physical activities that challenge balance • Several hours of light physical activities, including standing. The following health

benefits can result from following the 24-Hour Movement Guidelines: • a lower risk of mortality, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, several cancers, anxiety, depression, dementia, weight gain, adverse blood lipid profile; and, • improved bone health, cognition, quality of life and physical function.

“That balance piece is something we always need to think about. Balance is both static (standing) and dynamic (moving around). We need to challenge both sides of that whether that is just standing on one leg, bouncing a ball and responding to it, or walking on the edge of a curb. “Every time you work your balance, you always work your strength and

Submitted PCN exercise specialist Connie Harrison works with clients to improve overall physical wellbeing, including strength, flexibility, endurance and balance.

Camrose Primary Care Network exercise specialist Connie Harrison adds that the four key components of exercises should address are endurance, strength, flexibility and balance. In terms of balance, Harrison said it is important for people of all ages to work on balance. “People start developing habits, usually in their 30s and 40s, where they are leaning on stuff and don’t even realize they are doing it.” Harrison said the unfortunate consequence of people not working on balance earlier on in life can result in being unable to stand on one leg later in life.

bones as well, so you get two or three for one. I am always telling people don’t live in your house, apartment or duplex without a ball. You can bounce it on the floor or on a wall. When your body has to respond to something coming at it, that is going to require balance, coordination and strength all in one. That is an easy way to work your balance.” Harrison recommends doing activities that work all four of the components for overall physical wellness. Right now is as good of time as any to start your own 24-Hour Movement program. The return on investment is well worth the time.

Posthumous award recognizes fellow officers By Lori Larsen

Recognizing the vital and often extremely dangerous work of fellow police officers, specifically those conducting traffic patrol, Wetaskiwin/ Camrose RCMP Corporal Trent Cleveland, on behalf of the Wetaskiwin Integrated Traffic Unit, created the Constable James Lloyd Lundblad Memorial Award. The award is an annual internal award given to an RCMP member of the Wetaskiwin Integrated Traffic Unit, who exemplifies outstanding achievement in the field of traffic services. “The award was created on behalf of Constable James Lloyd Lundblad, who was working for the unit at the time of his on-duty death (in 2009),” explained Cleveland. “Const. Lundblad was fatally involved in a motor vehicle collision that occurred near Millet, while attempting to enforce traffic safety.” Constable Jason Wierenga is the first recipient of the Const. James Lloyd Lundblad Memorial Award. “Wetaskiwin Integrated Traffic recognizes excellence, dedication and initiative in the field of traffic safety,” said Corporal Cleveland. “The purpose of this award is to identify and commend active enforcement personnel for their work to improve road safety through education, enforcement, training and/or community-based program.” Constable Lundblad’s sister, Michelle Keast, was very grateful to have this honour bestowed upon her brother. “That is so amazing,” remarked Michelle. “Congratulations to Jason and thank you for keeping James’ memory alive. If my parents were still with us, they would also be proud.” The Wetaskiwin Integrated Traffic Unit is an integral part of the RCMP detachment and is responsible for ensuring the roads throughout the jurisdiction, including Maskwacis, Wetaskiwin, Bashaw, Camrose and Killam, remain safe for all travellers.

The automotive section of

Bergen drives his working man’s truck By Murray Green

Abraham Bergen of Stettler owns a 1952 Chevrolet hog-hauling truck. “The truck sits on a 1996 Dodge frame, so it has been modernized a fair bit. I found the body of this truck in Saskatchewan. I wanted to look at a 1935 Fargo truck when I came across this truck,” said Abraham. Halfway through the 1951 Chevy truck model year, the bed wood design changed from nine-board to an eight-board type. The speedometer showed a maximum speed of 80 miles per hour. Vent windows in doors were first introduced. It was the only year with vent windows and turndown handles, and the last year for chrome window handle knobs and chrome wiper knobs. “I took the body and added a hog-hauler box with stock racks on the back. The box does come off, so I can use it for other purposes,” explained Abraham. Horizontal strips below and above radio speaker grille plus glove box door changed from stainless steel to painted steel. “Because I changed the frame to be more modern, it can go faster as well. That was important to me to make it look like an old truck, but have some modern conveniences so that it

is fun to drive as well,” said Abraham. Outer door handles became push button type. Chevrolet hubcaps changed from chrome-plated to


The 1952 Chevrolet short-bed light pickup truck is sought-after by customizers, hot rodders and old truck collectors. With their big chrome grilles and large rounded hoods, they take many styling cues from 1952 Chevy passenger cars. By 1952, Chevrolet manufactured many truck models, sub-models and body styles. The most popular were the light-duty conventional Series 1500 and 3100 vehicles. The Series 3600 to 3900 were medium-duty conventional trucks. The 1952 Chevys had front and rear semi-elliptic leaf-springs. The four- or three-speed synchromesh manual transmission had a column-mounted gearshift and used a dry single-plate clutch. The brakes were mechanical expanding-drum types. Steering was by a recirculating worm and ball-nut gear. The 1996 Ram pickup had electronically governed automatic transmissions and a torque increase for the optional 5.9L turbodiesel V8 to 440 lb-ft. The 3500 can haul a total weight of 19,000 pounds. The bulky five-speed manual transmission gives the 3500 an agricultural feel. For instance, first gear, called low on the gearshift lever, is used to get the Ram rolling at under five mph when pulling a heavy load. Normally, you start off in second gear. Fifth gear is normally called drive.

gray-painted steel with black block letters, however, the stamping and shape remained the same as prior years. Some say a very few deluxe half-ton pickups still carried the chrome cap. “I put in a brand new floor. It has a Z28 steering system and a 3500 transmission. I am thinking of sanding it down a bit and putting on a clear coat. I like the patina look because it looks natural. I might take the cab off to sand blast and undercoat the frame,” shared Abraham. “It has good original steel to it and I want to keep it that way.” By 1952, speedometers showed a maximum speed of 90 miles per hour, and all beds were eight-board type. Rear bumpers were only available on Suburban and Panel models in 1952. In midyear, GM stopped using 3100, 3600 and 3800 emblems on the side of the hood. However, Chevrolet hood emblems were used for

the entire year. Inside window handle knobs and wiper knob were now maroon. The 1952 Chevy trucks featured a Thriftmaster 216.5-cubic inch or a Loadmaster 235.5-cubic inch, in-

line, six-cylinder, valve-inhead engine. The 216.5-cubic inch motor had a bore and stroke of 3.5 by 3.75 inches with a compression ratio of 6.5:1. It generated 90 horsepower at 3,400 rpm.

Some are going to want to stay with RCMP and some will want provincial police. Over the next several months, we are gathering information from the municipalities on what they feel would be the way to go. We get federal funding for the RCMP, so there will be some costs involved to take on our police force,” warned MLA Wilson. He has heard loud and clear that cities that currently have their own police force shouldn’t have a say in the matter. “This is more of a rural issue than a big city issue,” he added. “The cities that have their own force, unless they are going provincial police, even here in Camrose, shouldn’t have a say on what happens in rural Alberta. It happened in the referendum. The urban people decided for us and most of them didn’t know what they were voting for,” said Reeve Trautman. “About 80 per cent of the rural municipalities in the province have already sent a very clear and distinct message to the minister that we have no interest in a provin-

cial police force,” said County administrator Paul King. “There were 290 municipalities that participated in the referendum, and 235 of them all voted in favour, staying with Daylight Savings Time. The difference in the vote was Edmonton. The difference was 10,000 votes and Edmonton had a difference of 20,000 votes to go on and off and that made the whole difference. They made the decision for the rest of the province. That’s not fair,” explained King. “I hear you, I’ve heard that comment before. I want to know your main reason for not wanting a provincial police force. Is it cost?” asked Wilson. “It’s cost and the fact that we are happy with the service we have with the RCMP. We work with them very closely. We have a good working relationship with the Camrose-Wetaskiwin RCMP and Bashaw RCMP that serves the southern part of the County. They are fully staffed and doing a great job,” offered King. “If we go to provincial police, then I’m concerned it will be run like our ambulance service, where it is run globally instead of locally, and we are left bare many times without having an ambulance. They had to get an ambulance from Vegreville to help out my neighbour who fell off a scaffold and broke his leg. That is scary,” said councillor Tina Sroka.

“No disrespect to Kaycee Madu (minister of justice and solicitor general), but he doesn’t understand rural Alberta. Not even this much (very little). He thinks if you live in the City of Edmonton, you will have a member at your door in three minutes. If you live in rural Alberta, that is 45 minutes, so how is that going to change going from RCMP to provincial police? The distance doesn’t change. And you don’t get a police officer in three minutes in Edmonton. It’s like they are doing this and don’t care about costs or anybody. There has been no explanation on how this is going to be paid for,” said Reeve Trautman. The loss of $190 million in funding from the federal government will have to be paid for by someone (taxpayers). “When you split $190 million between 76 municipalities, that’s staggering ($2.5 million for Camrose County ratepayers alone),” said King. Wilson said the consultations will gather information. However, the County was frustrated that the provincial government didn’t tell local governments that they were going to pay for extra policing last year either. No choices were given. “I viewed the provincial police consultant study on the feasibility on having a provincial police force. If you pay a consultant $2 million, you get exactly what you what. That’s what I discovered after read-

ing the study,” said County administrator Paul King. “It looks like the they (provincial government) are trying to create a demand for a provincial police force in Alberta,” said councillor Doug Lyseng. “They are selling it on the aspect that there will be an over-arching police commission. Then there will be local police commissions. That is how it was set up in the early 1900s, when we had a provincial police force. It is politically driven because Premier Jason Kenney has said, ‘Screw Ottawa’ and will do anything to do so. It’s a playground dispute between the federal and provincial governments,” added King. Alberta had a provincial police force from 1917 until 1932. “The trouble is when you go to local police forces is that federal issues such as major crime (increases) because local police don’t want to deal with federal stuff. That is why the RCMP originally came to Alberta,” added King. Surrey, BC recently switched from RCMP to the Surrey Police Service on November 30, but the costs have skyrocketed. The transition capital costs have grown from $45 million as initially estimated in June 2019 to $63.7 million. It is estimated to be up to about three times higher than the RCMP. In April 2020, the National Police Federation conducted a survey of 803 randomly

selected adults living in the city. The survey showed that 60 per cent of respondents were opposed to the plan at the time. It is estimated that the number of RCMP members would go from more than 1,600 to about 50 members. Those members remaining would handle federal matters such as working at international airports. “This would be an administrative nightmare. It has cost Surrey, BC millions more and they are not even functioning yet. It is a real eye-opener,” said King. Surrey proposed a 2.9 per cent property tax hike and an added $200 levy per household in 2021. In addition, the city is now planning to budget about $5 million in each of the three years following 2021 to come up with extra money.

Christopher Alan Blades

Laverne Hoveland Laverne Bernard Hoveland, the eldest child of Bert and Lil, was born on June 7, 1935, in the big Hoveland farmhouse built by his Grandpa Ludwig. He was baptized at the nearby Zion Lutheran Church as a young baby. Three siblings, Dennis, Karen and Patricia, would later join the family. The family later moved to Camrose, where Laverne took his schooling, graduating from Camrose Lutheran College in 1954. His Christian faith became very real to him during his teenage years and he later felt the call to enter the Christian ministry. He took his university and seminary training in Saskatoon, graduating as a pastor in 1961. He married Marilyn Hoveland the same summer, and they began their life together serving parishes at Lake Alma, SK and Preeceville, SK, Valhalla-La Glace in the Peace Country, and Thorsby, AB. He also taught at the Canadian Lutheran Bible Institute in Camrose for ten years. The family grew to include four children, Paul, Faith, John and Mark, who were the centre of his personal life. Many of his extra home and community activities centred around his children’s involvement in various areas. As a family, camping was an important part of each summer; and as the children grew up and had their own homes, trips to visit them were highlights, especially as the grandchildren and great-grandchildren arrived. Laverne retired from full-time ministry in 2000, but continued with part-time interim positions and volunteering until his Parkinson’s made it difficult to continue. Laverne and Marilyn travelled extensively in retirement. They travelled across Canada a number of times and also visited the majority of the States. A very special trip was taken to Norway, where they went to trace their roots. The advancing Parkinson’s during the last years, and especially months, made extra activities more difficult, but through all of it, Laverne was never heard to complain about his condition. Two special events were that Laverne was recognized for 60 years since ordination, and he and Marilyn were able to celebrate their 60th anniversary in July of this year with an intimate family gathering. Laverne loved his Lord, he loved his family, and he loved his church. Laverne will be deeply missed by his wife Marilyn; his son Paul (Maureen); son John (Marie) with grandsons Caleb and Connor; son Mark (Danelle); son-in-law Gordon Kut; granddaughter Chantel (Shawn) with great-grandsons Rylen, Hayden and Beckem; brother Dennis; sister Karen (Larry) Frazier; sister Patricia Axten; sister-in-law Alice Haldorson; and a number of nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Bert and Lil; and by his only daughter Faith Kut. Due to the pandemic restrictions, a private funeral was held, and a livestream of the funeral is available on our website. Memorial donations may be made to the Parkinson’s Association, Canadian Lutheran World Relief, or to any of the charities you know Laverne loved or to the charity of one’s choice.

August 12, 1957 ~ December 30, 2021 Christopher Alan Blades of Camrose, Alberta, passed away on Thursday, December 30, 2021, at the age of 64 years. Everyone who knew Chris knew that he was a caring, encouraging, and thoughtful Christian man. He was the epitome of respect and dedication in all aspects of his life. He adored and cherished his wife, Joy, and together they were a loving example of what a marriage should be for 43 years. As a father and grandfather, he always made sure that his love was known to each and every one, even through the more challenging times. As a son, brother, and friend, he put time and effort into being present for others and valued them all tremendously. Chris demonstrated dedication in his career of almost 40 years at Augustana (CLC/Augustana/ U of A) as an employee, a manager, a director, but most of all as a servant leader, who respected and cared for the people with whom he worked. Chris was dedicated and involved in the community through volunteering with the Camrose Fire Department, and many years of coaching and encouraging youth to grow their talents and gain confidence. He was also a member of the Wild Rose Co-op board for many years. In his free time, Chris enjoyed tending to his yard and garden, working on home or hobby projects, and fishing at the “pond” or anywhere that he could, either from the shore, a boat, or his kayak. He loved the outdoors! He shared this passion with his children through countless camping trips and impromptu nature lessons along hiking paths and continued this with his grandchildren as well. Golfing, painting, playing cards and games, woodworking, tropical winter vacations, feeding/watching birds, and admiring the stars were among the many things he loved to do with and for the people he loved. Chris’ faith in God was present in the way he lived his life and cared for others. He will be remembered by all for the sparkle in his eye when he smiled, and the warmth and care of his presence. He will be tremendously missed and forever loved. Left to cherish his memory are his wife Joy; children Francine (Sean) Hamilton of Camrose, Vanessa (Mathew) Hamilton of Stony Plain, Jalene (Steve) Johnsen of Ardrossan, and Sean Blades (Sahara Pelkey-Cooper) of Edmonton; seven grandchildren; and siblings Larry (Deb) of Vernon, BC, Gary (Shelley) of Leduc, Don (Rhonda) of Sherwood Park, and Lori Blades of Camrose. Chris was predeceased by his parents Jack and Katie; and granddaughter Emelyn Johnsen. Due to Alberta Health regulations, a private family service was held.

CAFCL reports to council By Lori Larsen

Camrose Association for Community Living (CAFCL) provided an update to City of Camrose council during the Committee of Whole meeting on December 6. CAFCL CEO Robin Good, along with CAFCL board director Jonathan Sims provided information on what type of work CAFCL does. Sims said the vision of CAFCL is that each person is an accepted and participating member of the community. “Our programs help people become involved in the community in a variety of different ways in accordance to each person’s skills and passions.” CAFCL is a community-focused organization dedicated to enhancing skill development, wellbeing and resilience to children, youth and adults facing barriers and experiencing developmental disabilities and acquired brain injuries. “There are a lot of people who fall under the umbrella for CAFCL to provide services and lots of different areas that umbrella covers. “CAFCL’s region, so to speak, goes as far north/ west as almost Sherwood Park and as far south/east as Macklin, Saskatchewan. There is a large area geographically that people can access CAFCL services with satellite offices in Wainwright, Provost and Bashaw.” Sims reported that in 2020, CAFCL served approximately 584 people, with a staff of 105 employees and an average of approximately 48 volunteers, and a volunteer board consisting of 10 directors. “CAFCL provides services for adults with developmental disabilities, acquired brain injuries, children with special health and developmental needs and families facing barriers such as mental health issues, family violence, low income, disability, addictions and teen pregnancy.” Good spoke on the variety of programs offered by CAFCL including the following. Residential Living provides support in group living situations at 11 residences (four owned by CAFCL and the others rented directly by individuals in the community with CAFCL providing staff), providing 24-hour staffing supports for 33 adults with disabilities. The Outreach program provides the amount of support needed by individuals most often living on their own in order to meet their day-to-day needs. “We

try to get those individuals involved in our other activities of the organization if possible to try to provide those connections.” These prog rams include: Rose Club–an adult drop-in centre run by individuals who access the program with support staff. “This provides a great outlet for them to develop friendships and keep active in the community in that way.”

Some of our government funders are really encouraging support home-type environments because it is quite cost effective for them. So this is something I see probably growing over the next little bit.” Community Education–“We employ two individuals who are receiving service from us to go out into the community and educate people on acceptance of people with disabilities. Over the years, we have had a lot of different topic areas we covered.” Currently, CAFCL employs Kelsey Winterhalt, who has cerebral palsy, to go out to the schools and make presentations to Grade 4 and 5 students on body confidence

ily Support include: Jobs4Youth, Leaders in Training (LIT) and Kandu Summer Camp, offered both in Camrose in other locations in private homes. SingAble–“Our last program is our SingAble program,” said Good. “Basically, this is an all-inclusive free community choir. Everybody is welcome. It is just a really fun thing to do. This is a really wonderful partnership that we have with Augustana that we are really proud of.” In conclusion, Good suggested ways the City of Camrose can work together with CAFCL, including referrals and support. “We can work with the City as a resource on behalf of citizens of Camrose living with a disability or families facing barriers.” Council inquiries

Councillor Kevin Hycha asked if the number

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster Camrose Association for Community Living provides services to enhance skill development, well-being and resilience to children, youth and adults facing barriers and experiencing developmental disabilities and acquired brain injuries.

Sexuality and Education Program–provides courses to help meet the needs of the individuals served by CAFCL, as well as a variety of courses offered on numerous topics. MORE (Meaningful Options for Role Enhancement) Day Program–providing meaningful daytime activities for 14 adults with disabilities not seeking employment. “These are individuals who may be at a place where they can’t seek employment, so we really work to identify passions and interests and provide meaningful activities throughout the day. A lot of times that includes volunteerism.” Support Home Program–CAFCL contracts private homeowners in the community to provide unique living options and support for adults with developmental disabilities. “These are something we really struggle to recruit. They are difficult to recruit and they are something that lots of individuals really want for services,” said Good. “It is definitely an area we would like to expand. We currently only have five support homes.

and accepting yourself for who you are and accepting people with differences. The second employee is Krista Borgfjord, a survivor of a serious car accident. Krista shares her story of living with an acquired brain injury with high school students. “And we do additional education upon request,” added Good. Healthy Families– “This is the program that is most widespread,” noted Good. “This program supports parents-to-be and families with children from zero to six years old. We also have an enhanced program which we will continue to support up to the age of 13.” This program also supports women, who are pregnant or up to six months postnatal, struggling with alcohol and/or substance abuse. Last year, this program served 176 children, 88 women and five men. Family Support– “This is a program we fund entirely internally. It supports family with children who have special health and developmental considerations.” Three other programs offered in the Fam-

of people requesting service from CAFCL fluctuates. Good responded, “No, for the most part, our City of Camrose (support) is pretty consistent, but our Healthy Families program fluctuates a lot. We really try to get people through the program and help them to transition out. There is a change in clientele frequently, but numbers wouldn’t fluctuate.” Hycha asked if CAFCL has occasions where they assist anyone outside of their service area. Good said that the Healthy Families program is the only program that is primarily outside the Camrose area, and while CAFCL does work with other agencies to provide support, they are the only organization that goes into the home and does work with the family in the home. Councillor Agnes Hoveland asked for clarification on why the government sees Support Homes as being more cost effective. Good said that Support Homes provide a 24-hour service, 365 days a year, and are paid a flat rate. As well, there aren’t the administrative costs that

would be associated with residential setting. “The residential funding is based on individual needs to provide staffing. If you put an individual in a support home, the amount of funding they receive is substantially less. There is a lot more overhead.” Hoveland inquired about how the funding works for Support Home providers. Good said if the individual using the Support Home receives AISH (Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped), then they pay room and board to the Support Home provider. As well, the Support Home provider receives a flat rate, which is intended to cover support to the individual and staffing support. Councillor DJ Ilg asked about an inquiry from a Camrose resident (previously from Red Deer), who is on a fixed AISH income and was wondering about the supports available in Camrose, such as discounted rates for City facilities. “I am just wondering, do we, as a City, have something like that and is this someone who would qualify for support with CAFCL?” “As for support from us, our funding for our services for adults with developmental disabilities comes from PDD (Persons with Developmental Disabilities),” noted Good. “If they are looking for residential or outreach, a larger service such as a living service, they would need to be eligible for funding through them (PDD) in order to receive that service. However, there are other services that they may be able to access, it would depend. We would certainly look at how we can help them in other ways. “I know that the City does have a program for support staff and a huge one for us is the transportation taxi tokens.” City of Camrose Community Services general manager Ryan Poole said the City does have a program for general public, if they meet certain requirements, implemented through Camrose District Support Services (CDSS), that offers subsidies for use of the swimming pool, golf course and a variety of different City facilities and programs. Poole added that the City also offers no cost to the facilities for support staff for these individuals. The report was accepted as information by council.

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

FRONT DESK – part-time, basic computer skills required. HOUSEKEEPER – part-time, job experience great asset. Send resumé to motel6camrose@gmail.com MOTEL6 CAMROSE 6216-48 Avenue, Camrose, AB


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.

2ND BEST PAINTER IN TOWN – 30 years’ experience for all your painting needs. Call Rick the Painter, 780-672-0391.

Be Honest


State Your Price

FRIENDLY THREE MONTH OLD FEMALE TABBY KITTEN – Will be a great mouser. 780-226-5415.

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. 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.

Fridge Clippings

from years gone by

Hmmm. Brrr.

My goal for 2022 is to accomplish the goals of 2021, which I should have done in 2020 because I made a promise in 2019 and planned them in 2018.

Thanks to Lois Jacobson of Camrose for sharing this keepsake memory.

2022 feels like that boyfriend we’re about to take back for the third time because he swears he’s changed.

Even though this Fridge Clipping (cherished and cared for over the past 53 years) wasn’t something clipped from The Camrose Booster, we simply had to make an exception and profile it in view of our recent teeth-chattering weather. This Edmonton Journal memory-maker celebrated with readers what must have been exceptionally uncomfortable weather for a lengthy stretch in January 1969. This feature definitely made a lasting impression on Lois and her husband Robert all those years ago. As the printed piece states and reminds us, at least we don’t have hurricanes! Show us what you’ve clipped from The Camrose Booster! If we publish your entry, you will win $10, too. The oldest entry submitted prior to the end of December 2022 will earn the sender a cool $100 gift certificate from any Camrose business of that person’s choosing.

Send us a copy or a photo of your entry:

Show us what used to hang on your fridge!

Going on record for the new year – I will most likely be the same dumpster fire I was last year, but with a moderate amount of hope for the next couple weeks. I decided to park in the farthest spot from the gym this morning because I didn’t want anyone to see me finishing my Lefse House cinnamon bun. Kids are back at school now. Finally, I can procrastinate in peace. Best Decluttering Tip Ever: Whenever my husband and I go over to a relative’s house, we bring something we want to get rid of and secretly place it somewhere it makes sense for it to be: books on the bookshelf, mugs in a cupboard, ornaments on the fireplace mantle, etc. We get rid of our unwanted stuff and no one ever notices! We are easily entertained. Diet Day One: I have removed all the bad food from my house. It was delicious.

Having not gotten COVID yet feels like I’ve been hiding in the back of a two-year-long middle school dodgeball game and the front lines have thinned out.

Central Agencies Home of the Week

Walk right out your condo patio door to street level and be within walking distance of the many amenities located in the west end of Camrose. This two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo has plenty of indoor living space as well as a large outdoor patio area, where you can sit with your morning coffee or take advantage of barbecuing weather. Inside, you will love the airy open feeling created by plenty of northand west-facing windows and nine-foot ceilings. Enjoy family get-togethers in the open living area that flows nicely into the well-appointed kitchen. Plenty of cabinets and a corner pantry option mean there is lots of storage for all your kitchen needs. A dinette area flooded with warm natural light is the perfect place to host

It’s cool if your 2022 resolution is just to make it through 2022.

A postman would be immortal if walking is good for your health. A whale swims all day, only eats fish and drinks water and is fat. A rabbit only eats vegetables, runs and hops all day long and only lives five years. A tortoise doesn’t run and does nothing energetic, yet lives for 450 years. And you tell me to exercise and eat healthy. I don’t think so!

So far, the new year feels like when all the congestion somehow moves from one nostril to the other. Different but the same.

Now that I have lived through an actual plague, I totally understand why Italian Renaissance paintings are full of naked fat people laying on couches. Me (lighting a scented candle in a sea of overturned toy trucks, garbage, a sink full of dirty dishes, dirty and clean laundry [no longer identifiable which is which], a pile of random tote bags, in the midst of the third year of the global pandemic: “This will fix things.” If you think things are bad now, rumour has it that the next variant plays the accordion. If you rarely drive on snowy roads with icy patches, just pretend you’re taking your grandma to a church potluck. There is a platter of biscuits and two gallons of iced tea in glass jars on the back seat, and she’s wearing a new dress and holding a crockpot full of gravy. It snowed today. Time for my kids to spend 56 minutes getting ready to go out to play in it for 17.6 seconds. Regular people highway driving during a blizzard: “I can’t see a thing. I better pull over and wait it out.” Hockey parents: “Buckle up, we gotta be at the rink in 90 minutes.” My favourite winter activity is going back inside where it’s warm and putting on my pajamas. If you want a successful relationship, find someone who likes the same thermostat setting that you do. I like to imagine that the guy who invited the umbrella was going to call it the brella. Then he hesitated. It’s not good when coworkers ask if it’s Ugly Sweater Day when you are just wearing a sweater you like. How do you stop Canadian bacon from curling in your pan? You take away their little brooms. You never completely run out of underwear. You just get down to that one pair that you don’t want to wear. That’s your warning pair to do your laundry.

One minute you’re happily married, and the next minute you’ve discovered the chip bag your husband put away has only one chip left in it.
