Jaywalkers’ excitement back on streets By Lori Larsen

It’s been a long time waiting for the excitement of Jaywalkers’ Jamboree to return to the streets of Downtown Camrose and bring with it the feel of an old fashioned openair country fair and some screaming good deals. After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, the annual (63rd) Jaywalkers’ Jamboree is returning to Downtown Camrose Friday, June 3, Saturday, June 4 and Sunday, June 5. The family fun outdoor event will feature West

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster Photo above and to right: The 2019 Jaywalkers’ Jamboree featured thrilling rides.

Coast Amusement (WCA) rides, a variety of food vendors, retail shopping and streetside entertainment, including local dance clubs, bands and singers. For those a little more daring, take in some of the pulse-raising rides offered by WCA, including a new attraction to the roster, the Wobbly Waterballs ride. Or, maybe you want to try your luck at one of the games. West Coast Amusements Rides will operate Friday from 9 a.m. until 11 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. until 11 p.m., and Sunday from noon until 6 p.m. (weather permitting). The event will also feature a special midway area for children, plus facepainting, clowns and other activities. Camrose’s own Mirror Lake Express train will be chugging around the area offering rides from the Mirror Lake Arbour on Saturday from noon until 4 p.m. While enjoying the sights and sounds of an open air festival, you can also take advantage of some retail therapy through a variety of Camrose’s Downtown businesses and services.

Get your morning started with the pancake breakfast offered Friday and Saturday morning at the south side of Candler Art Gallery. Friday’s breakfast begins at 7 a.m. and goes until 9 a.m., and Saturday’s breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m. and goes until 9:30 a.m. When your stomach starts to growl midway through the day, take some time to enjoy a variety of cuisine including Ukrainian, Mexican, Asian, or some of the great fair standbys: corn on the cob, burgers, hot dogs and fries, and for dessert, how about some Norwegian lefse (a potato and flour flatbread) coated in butter and cinnamon, or a bag of piping hot mini doughnuts. While walking the streets and midway, help support local organizations and service clubs through their fundraisers and raffles. It’s back and it’s carrying on the tradition of good old fashioned fun combined with a bounty of bargains. Come on down to Downtown Camrose and take in the 2022 Jaywalkers’ Jamboree.

County orders new graders for next year By Murray Green

Camrose County has been known to plan ahead. At the May 10 regular meeting, councillors agreed to purchase three graders for 2023. Public works manager Zach Mazure reviewed the proposals received for three new graders to be purchased with the 2023 capital budget. Reeve Cindy Trautman (act-

ing as a councillor for this meeting) moved, “That Camrose County council award the supply of three new 2023 Caterpillar 160 all wheel drive motor graders complete with new mastless snow wing and front lift from Finning (Canada) for the quoted price of $1,650,000 plus GST with funding to come from the 2023 Public Works Capital budget.” In addition, councillor Jordon Banack moved, “That Camrose

County council authorize administration to either tender, send to auction, or utilize the guaranteed trade value for the current units: 2015 John Deere, 2018 John Deere and (a second) 2018 John Deere upon delivery of the new 2023 graders, whichever is in the best interest of Camrose County.” Mazure explained that normally they don’t spend next year’s budget, but because it takes about nine

months to receive a new machine, he wanted to start the process now. The machines are expected to arrive next January or early February. “If we order the graders today, then the price is locked in and they can’t increase the price. The payment is due when the graders arrive, so this benefits us,” said administrator Paul King, prior to the motion.

Celebrating Paramedic Services Week By Murray Green

Paramedics were celebrated across the country last week, May 22 to 28. The theme for Paramedic Services Week 2022 was Faces of Paramedicine. The paramedic profession involves many people to make it successful in delivering out-of-hospital care in both acute and nonacute environments as well as paramedics. It is these additional professionals, in addition to the paramedics on the streets, who were celebrated this year recognizing the work they do. The week focused on different specialties within the paramedic profession. Paramedic organizations and the many faces that contribute to the provision of care is critical in the success of services provided. Paramedics are one of those rare and wonderful groups for whom learning never stops. EMS must ensure that both education and training of staff are sufficiently robust to enable both personal and professional growth for paramedics, as well as the highest quality of care, embracing all new and appropriate technologies in order to provide maximum medical benefit to each patient. As health care in Canada changes and evolves, EMS must change and evolve along with it. EMS is no longer simply a medical transportation service; there are increasing numbers of places in the world where both the role and the scope of practice of paramedics have evolved to provide definitive primary care outside of traditional clinical venues, and paramedic practitioners with the knowledge and skills required to provide such care.

A permit is required to drain water By Murray Green

It is illegal to drain water from your property onto someone else’s property. That includes sending the water to Camrose County ditches. Moving water from one area to another that isn’t contained on one land parcel requires an Alberta En-

vironment permit. This applies to overflows resulting from spring snow melt and permanent wetlands. At the regular meeting of Camrose County council on May 10, councillor Jordon Banack moved, “That council give third reading to Surface Drainage By-law 1510.” A second motion was

made to pass the associated fine table. Although this new bylaw outlines the penalties and enforcement process that would be taken in the event of drainage offences, it is not a change to authorities. Alberta Environment remains the authority on all drainage items between

property owners. Camrose County has no jurisdiction to become involved in these disputes. Secondly, this is not a change to the Drainage District Act authorities. The Drainage Districts retain the authority to construct works and use lands including road allowances within the District Bound-

aries. This bylaw pertains only to drainage affecting County property. The fines range from $300 to $1,000 for a first offence, and up to $2,500 for subsequent offences. If you have inquiries about draining sloughs or moving water, contact Camrose County or Alberta Environment for more information. Additional information is also available on the County website.

Move Your Mood By Lori Larsen

The City of Camrose Recreation and Culture Department have teamed up with Alberta Health Services (AHS) Move Your Mood (MYM) and the ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge to encourage residents to get and/or keep their bodies moving through a variety of fun and accessible activities. The ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge initiative will run throughout the month of June with daily messages to residents about the benefits of being and staying active, along with some suggestions on locations and activities throughout Camrose that can help make it happen. AHS Addiction Prevention and Mental Health Promotion facilitator Tammy Richard explains. “Move Your Mood aims to improve the mental and physical well-being of participants through healthy lifestyle practices. MYM provides a variety of programs for children, youth, families and communities. The overall goal is for participants to gain knowledge and skills to be active and

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster

Getting motivated to get active around the City will be a little easier thanks to some strategically placed sidewalk games and activities. ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge, supported by the City of Camrose Recreation and Culture Department, and Alberta Health Services Move Your Mood initiative are creating fun ways to get residents out and active. Pictured left to right are resident City of Camrose Recreation and Culture program coordinator Christine McCord, resident Jack Blaeser, Alberta Health Services Addiction Prevention and Mental Health Promotion facilitator Tammy Richard and resident Lenard Budinsky preparing a sidewalk game of “Mirror Me” in front of the Camrose Public Library for any passersby to use.

healthy for life, help build healthy relationships and healthy communities.” One of the key goals of MYM is to highlight the benefits of being physically active. “We see this demonstrated through a timeline,” noted Richard. “In one single bout of physical activity, there are improvements to overall mental health. We see benefits such as decreased stress, depression and anxiety. There is

an improvement in mood, self-esteem, enhanced focus, learning, memory and problem solving.” Richard further explained that after four to eight weeks of being physically active, physical health improvements such as improved heart health, balance and muscular strength will be noticeable. “Lastly, if physical activity becomes a part of everyday life, we see improvements to overall quality of life such as personal independence and

decreased chronic disease.” The MYM program supports overall involvement throughout the community and encourages participants to be part of the ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge. “ParticipACTION is launching its Canada-wide Community Better Challenge in the search for Canada’s more active communities, and we want you to help put Camrose on the map,” said City of Camrose Recreation and Culture

Recreation Program coordinator Christine McCord. “The top 50 communities with the most active minutes and greatest community engagement will be eligible to win $100,000 towards community recreation. In addition, there are prizes for the most active community in each province.” Participants can download the free ParticipACTION app and track their minutes from June 1 to 30. Minutes are assigned to communities based on participants’ postal codes. “You can even see where Camrose is sitting nationally by looking at the app,” suggested McCord If you aren’t overly savvy with technology, McCord advised you can track your activity minutes on paper and drop them off to the Chuck MacLean Arts Centre once a week.” At the end of the month (June), the community with the most minutes will have an opportunity to be entered to win money for their community. Everyone is encouraged to take part and reap the benefits of physical activity and socializing with others in the community. “Organizations, schools, sport groups, recreation centres, and workplaces can participate by tracking the group activities they organize like exercise classes, practices, events or even lunchtime walks,” said McCord. “Parents can even track for their children. Any activity is fair game too. Whether it is

mowing the lawn, cleaning the house, walking the dog, or simply moving around the office, it can all be tracked and counted. Prior to the Community Better Challenge’s beginning, members of the community will be painting games on various sidewalks around the City to encourage families to get outside, find the games and have a bit of active fun. Look for the Move Your Mood logo and the City mascot Ollie. “The goal of this project is to excite and connect our entire community through movement,” said Richard. “This project is part of a Canada-wide challenge and is something positive that all residents of all ages can participate in.” In an effort to assist residents in getting active, MYM has created an events calendar with suggested locations throughout the community that participants can explore and join others getting active. Calendars will be sent home with area students, can be downloaded from the City of Camrose’s website, or picked up at the library or any City facility. “Maybe Camrose will be the most active community and have a chance to win $100,000,” commented Richard. For more information on the Community Better Challenge, visit the City of Camrose website at aspx, Facebook page and Our Camrose page.

Jaywalkers’ Jamboree County appoints five weed inspectors By Murray Green

Camrose County named five weed inspectors to assist them in 2022. Councillor Jordon Banack moved, “That Camrose County appoint Rodney Chmelynk, Tim Sand, Kiera Sunderland, Rick Uglem and Troy Hellekson as inspectors pursuant to Part 2, Section 7 (1) of the Weed Control Act and Section 10 (1) the Agricultural Pests Act.” A local authority such as Camrose County shall appoint inspectors to enforce and monitor compliance with this Act within the municipality.

Alberta received an A+ credit rating By Jackie Lovely, MLA Camrose Constituency

As a fiscal conservative, I believe it should be the role of government to protect your dollars and help you grow your savings. Our steadfast fiscal restraint has paid off, bringing our province out of a global health crisis and into an unprecedented era of prosperity. The A+ grade comes from S&P Global Ratings, and indicates a strong outlook for the future of Albertans. In response to this shining seal of approval, Minister of Finance Travis Toews issued the following statement: “This is the first upgrade of Alberta’s credit rating since 2001, which is a testament to the hard work we’ve undertaken to re-establish strong fiscal principles in the province,” he said. “S&P expects the provincial economy to continue to expand at a healthy pace in 2022, while financial management remains prudent.” We have remained firm in our commitment to help you grow your savings, which also means strengthening and diversifying our economy. Not only does our prosperity hinge on protecting Alberta’s interests, it also means that we need to continue to fight for a fair deal for our province. Energy security is one of the top priorities of our government. Alberta’s clean energy is critical—both to the success of our economy and our nation’s security. Earlier this year, we were proud to welcome United States Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia. His tour with Alberta’s energy partners was a valuable opportunity to advocate for our clean energy and revitalize our commitment to our American allies. During this visit, Manchin expressed regret for the cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline, and invited Premier Kenney to testify before the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. Recently, the Premier traveled to Washington, DC to meet with the committee and reiterate our commitment to become stronger energy partners. We are proud to have allies in the U.S. who, like Senator Manchin, realize the critical need to shift American reliance towards clean energy partners like Alberta. Unfortunately, U.S. President Biden’s cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline was a decision that killed jobs and put our energy security at risk. The European conflict has made it even more clear – the world still needs oil and Alberta has the capacity to deliver. In 2022, it is even more critical to build energy security at home and avoid reliance on foreign conflict oil. Our province holds world class ESG standards, and our energy industry plays a major role in Canada’s economy. We have lowered corporate taxes, and we can now boast an A+ credit rating. We will continue to fight for Albertans, because Alberta is worth the fight. If you have any questions or concerns, contact my office. We are always here for you! You can contact Jackie Lovely, Camrose MLA, at Constituency Office, 104, 4870-51 Street, Camrose, AB T4V 1S1.

By Lori Larsen

Located approximately six kilometres east of Camrose on Highway 13, and one kilometre south on Range Road 195, Camrose and District Fish and Game Pleasure Island Trout Pond is the ideal place to go and spend some leisure time fishing or exploring the great outdoors around the well maintained grounds. Pleasure Island Trout Pond is the result of a joint effort between the Wildlife Trust Fund (Alberta) and Camrose and District Fish and Game Association (CDFGA), a not-for-profit organization that is an affiliate of the Alberta Fish and Game Association. This beautiful little gem is maintained by dedicated volunteer members of the Camrose and District Fish and Game Association, who advocate for ethical hunting, fishing and other outdoor activities. “The CDFGA has maintained and developed the property for over 25 years,” said Camrose and District Fish and Game Association president Glen Hand. “We have a very popular trout pond consisting of 10 different fishing stations, all of which have either benches or picnic tables.” The area is enjoyed by all ages with all capabilities, and includes a large wheelchair accessible dock and four floating docks. “The pond is stocked every year and has recently been stocked with 1,400 rainbow, brook and brown trout.” Located so close to Camrose, it is the perfect place to visit and enjoy the serenity of an early morning or late afternoon fish. “Even if you don’t fish, it’s fun to come out and watch the fish jump, sometimes up to two feet out of the water, especially when they are feeding at night,” suggested Hand. Aside from the pond, the area also has a picnic shelter, picnic table, a natural amphitheatre and an observation dock on the marsh, where a person can spend hours watching a variety of birds and waterfowl that frequent and nest in the area. “Around the pond, we have installed a large number of birdhouses for swallows and purple martins, and two bat houses as well, so there is always a flurry of activity to be seen and experienced.” Guests to Pleasure Island will delight in close encounters with nesting purple martins as they flit in and out of their birdhouses that are faithfully maintained by purple martin landlords from Camrose

and area. “We also maintain ground cover for nesting birds like ducks, and artificial structures for nesting geese.” To add to the already abundant habitat for birds and other wildlife, the CDFGA has planted a variety of deciduous and coniferous trees in the area. When you are not sitting and taking in some fishing or just the natural beauty that surrounds you, take a stroll on the over two kilometres of walking trails that have been developed by the volunteers. “There are three different loops, two of which can be used as off-leash areas complete with dog waste dispensers,” said Hand. Pet owners coming from the City or visitors making this stop along their travels can take advantage of this incredible option for allowing their dogs to have a little leash freedom. Users are reminded to be responsible pet owners and keep dogs at bay, mind aggressive animals carefully (leash if around others), pick up after your pet (where possible, especially on trails) and do not allow your dogs to be off-leash in the areas other than the designated trails. In hopes of year-round use of the area, the CDFGA members want to encourage people to also use the area for winter snowshoeing. “The trails are pretty conducive to snowshoeing, even for beginners, and if you don’t own a pair of snowshoes, the Camrose Public Library has some they loan out.” As you make your way around the trails, be sure to be on the lookout and treat with respect the plethora of wildlife that either passes through or call Pleasure Island their homes. “Besides the birds and waterfowl, there has been sightings of snakes, coyotes, gophers, deer, moose and other woodland creatures,” reported Hand, adding that you are bound to see some form of wildlife. The Camrose and District Fish and Game Association welcomes new members and meets the second Wednesday of every month, starting at 7 p.m., at the community room of the Camrose Superstore.

Ask the A

CHIEF Dean LaGrange Chief of Police Camrose Police Service Question: How does the Camrose 911 Centre affect me? Answer: As discussed in last weeks Booster, the City of Camrose Emergency Communications Centre processes over 55,000 calls every year, including almost 9,000 (911 Calls). The Communications Centre is staffed by two call-takers/dispatchers 24 hours per day, seven days per week, and is responsible for City Police and Fire dispatch, as well as Camrose County Fire dispatch. Police related calls in the County (RCMP) are dispatched through Red Deer (Southern Alberta Operations Call Centre). Recently, through mandated federal legislation, the Communications Centre has started the transition to “Next Generation 911” services. This new technology allows emergency calls to be made via text, video and even through IP addresses, in addition to regular phone calls. This will provide first responders better data, faster location of emergencies and increased service levels when responding to an event. It also allows citizens to communicate with the 911 Centre through a variety of methods as technology continues to evolve. Have a question for the Chief? Email them to The Camrose Booster at

Haugen hangs up bunker gear after 44 years By Lori Larsen

Over 44 years ago, a young local farm boy felt the pull to give back to the community in one of the most selfless ways any person can–he decided he wanted to be a firefighter. Fast forward to 2022, when Camrose Fire Department Captain Randy Haugen hung up his bunker gear for a final time in his decision to retire from a incredible 44-year career of serving his community. Randy said he first got the bug to become a firefighter as a bystander watching firefighters perform their duties at a fire involving the Round Table, which existed in the downtown area many years ago, then actually helping firefighters move hoses around at another fire in the downtown area at the Highway 13 Mechanical garage. “At the time, Joel Cassidy told me I should come and join the fire department, so I went to Camrose Fire Department Chief (at the time) Alf Sunderman’s office with Joel, but Alf said he thought I was too young and wouldn’t make it. He (Sunderman) said the fire department had not had anyone that young before.” Randy said Joel thought they should at least give him a try, because after all, he was a farm boy, and the rest is a 44-year career in CFD history. “I started in November 1977 and was hired as a volunteer by Chief Sunderman,” reported Randy. “I remember one of the things they asked was if I could drive a truck and Joel said, ‘Well, he drives grain trucks’ then Alf said, ‘That’s good enough for me,’” smiled Randy, comparing the difference between then and what is expected of firefighters now. “Now, they have to take driving courses and produce driving records.” On May 1, 1995, Randy became the Safety Codes Officer and Fire Inspector, earning the title Captain. He served under four Fire Chiefs, including Chief Alf Sunderman (retired in 1979), Chief Ben Voshell (1979-96), Chief George McCrae (1996-2000) and current Chief Peter Krich. “When I started, all the firefighters were about 10 years older than I was, minimum, but they welcomed me into the department and really helped me. The captains took the time to mentor me.” Realizing the positive impact that had on himself, Randy made it a goal to also mentor new recruits. “I like to pass on my knowledge and experiences. In firefighting, it is not always black and white. What you get told may happen is not always what happens when you get to the scene. I have always said it is so important for firefighters to think fast on their feet.” Aside from continual firefighting training, Randy also received specialized training in wildland fires, dangerous goods, fire investigations, ice rescue and was an expert court witness in fire investigations (arson), with every case in which he testified successfully end-

ible support from the communities as well as Camrose County and the City of Camrose, and the cooperative working relationships he had with rural fire departments, the RCMP, Camrose Police Service and building and electrical inspectors. “Buildings now are safer than they were years ago because of building codes and that has been successful in part due to the good working relationships CFD has with building and electrical inspectors. We also work hand in hand with Alberta Health Services inspection services.” Randy also commended the businesses and other organizations of Camrose for their continual cooperation and understanding of the importance of fire safety inspections. “We are there to work with businesses to assist them in bringing them up to code. It is important to communicate and work with all partners and other stakeholders when it comes to fire codes compliance and fire safety.” Years of change

ing in a conviction. He was the commanding and organizing officer on site during Big Valley Jamboree, and also worked as a part time EMS for 17 years. The stories

The stories Randy could tell about his time with CFD are as endless as the dedication he had to making them a reality, but he managed to share just a few that stuck out in his mind. “One of the bigger fires I first attended was the Grand Trunk Landing building fire,” remembered Randy. “A four-story apartment building (attached to the Senior Centre) that burned while under construction. “There was no siding on it at the time, but the roof and inside were all done. We managed to save the Senior Centre next to it. They were attached, but the building was lost. And a piece of firebrand (wood that is burning) from that burn actually blew across the lake and started the roof on fire at Rosehaven. So we had to send a crew over to that fire too and save that.” Another big fire Randy recalls from his earlier firefighting days was the one located at the then Pearson’s 5¢ to $1 Store that was located directly beside the Bailey Theatre. “There was a natural gas leak and it exploded and started a fire.

The building itself burned, but we managed to save the Bailey.” Randy also recalled being the commanding fire officer at Big Valley Jamboree the year of the sudden and deadly windstorm that collapsed the stage and took the life of a BVJ attendee. But not all of Randy’s CFD related stories end in great loss or tragedy. He smiled when he recalled a rather funny, but also a tad embarrassing story for the station. “We were responding to a call in the County and we barely got out of town when the fire truck quit. “Luckily, the farmer was able to put out the fire, but we ended up pulling the fire truck down the highway with a half-ton truck. We turned all the lights off, it was at night,” laughed Randy. “That way no one could see us towing the fire truck back.” Randy also reminisced about restoring the antique fire trucks that are housed at the Camrose and District Centennial Museum. “That was a fun project. We had lots of laughs and lots of fun to get those trucks done, then we toured them all over North America into the United States. “It has been a really fun career,”said Randy. “I got to see the volunteer side of the department for over 30 years, and the full-time side of the department as well.” He commented on the incred-

When a career spans over 44 years, there are bound to be a lot of changes, and Randy shared a few of the major changes he experienced. “We still put water on the fires, but the fire trucks now are more dependable and have so many more safety and fire-fighting features. “There are different types of foam used on different fires and the hydrant systems, which the City of Camrose has been good at maintaining up to NFP standards, have improved” But Randy said by far the greatest change he has seen is in vehicle collisions. “When I first started, vehicles didn’t even have seatbelts and victims were thrown out of the vehicles. Granted, we didn’t attend a lot of accidents, we went to some but not like we do today, because we didn’t have the tools. Sometimes we would have to use a tow truck that was on scene to pull things apart and move things around to get trapped people out. “After we had been to a few accidents where there had been some fatalities, we decided to look into getting the Jaws of Life tool. Other departments in Alberta had them, so we thought we would look into them, but they were a large expense at that time.” Randy said Chief Voshell made an agreement with County Council to purchase a set of Jaws of Life tools to be stored at the Fire Hall, but used by the tow truck drivers. However, the Fire Department decided, with the blessing of council of the day, that they should be trained on the use of the Jaws of Life and then be responsible for their use and maintenance. “Now, vehicles are made so much safer and better equipped to handle the impact of a collision with less injury to the occupants. There is a far better rate of survival.” Randy also noted the vast changes in training for fire personnel over the span of his career. Continued on page 19

CFD Captain Haugen retires after 44 years of service Continued from page 18

“We were lucky to grow up on the farm. We had hands-on working and fixing equipment, where now many of the recruits may rely more on training from the organization in order to achieve that type of experience. “Training is the number one thing that recruits do now. Members of fire services get called to more situations and if the 911 dispatchers are not sure which emergency service to have respond, they will call out fire. “It is not just about fire. Firefighters are dealing with calls from dangerous goods, and more dangerous and toxic chemicals, to people trapped or rescuing cats from trees,” laughed Randy.

“We have to be trained in all of those.” He remarked on the changes of Personal Protection Equipment as well, relating how when he first started, he was handed down the gear from a retired firefighter (Number 11, which remained Randy’s number until his retirement). “He was 6’6” and lanky, and I was 5’10. I had to fold down the rubber boots because they were too high, and the coat was four sizes too big. At the time, when someone retired and you became his number, you wore what they had.” Now, the bunker gear is intended to fit the individual firefighter and includes a great deal more safety features. “If firefighters today had to wear the old

gear, they would soon appreciate the new gear, especially when we had to crawl through small spaces in gear that didn’t fit properly.” Outside the hall

When Randy wasn’t giving his all for Camrose Fire Department, he was also heavily involved in the community. He looked after coordinating medical for the Viking Cup and was on the board of directors; and handled all the transportation for Alberta Summer Games, which saw the moving around of approximately 3,200 youth and coaches every day. He was a medical volunteer for the Seniors Games, and was on the PACT board at his children’s school. “It’s what you do in a smaller community,

you get involved.” No matter what Randy was involved in, career or otherwise, his message is the same. “I was lucky to be surrounded by and had the opportunity to work with good people.” On a final note, Randy said that Camrose is a great safe place to grow up and to raise a family. “We are lucky to have very good first responders. It takes a very special type of person to be a firefighter, and once it gets in your blood, you are hooked.” Firing up for the future

Moving on to a new chapter in his life, Randy intends on spending a lot more time with his (now three-year-old) granddaughter Harper. “She and

Papa are planning a playground tour this summer. We are going to take our trailer and tour the playgrounds.” He also enjoys spending time on his son and daughter-in-law’s farm, tending the animals, and time in Calgary with his other daughter. Happy to have had such a remarkable career and work with so many amazing people, Randy is just as happy to be able to now spend more time with family and devote time to some other life passions. On behalf of the citizens of Camrose and area, thank you, Randy, for your years of service in keeping us safe.


Young Camrosian brings home the ribbons By Lori Larsen

There is a lot to be said about the bond between a rider and their horse–a connection that is inexplicable to some, but very real to those lucky enough to have one. Young 13-year-old rider Shaylyn Wyatt is one such person. “Ever since I saw a horse, I always knew that was my passion.” Having loved horses from a very early age (around three or four) and having been around her mother’s horses, Shaylyn began formal lessons in 2015 and is currently riding and competing with Affinity Stables. According to Shaylyn, Brittany Lauiger, owner/ operator and trainer of Affinity Stables, encourages clients to not only be confident riders, but teaches them how to be responsible for the care and well-being of the animals, respectful of the facility and, most importantly, how to be part of the bigger stable family. Shaylyn explained that while her trainer Brittany encourages each rider to strive for more and keep pushing themselves to improve and grow, she only allows them to compete at the level she knows they can successfully handle. Shaylyn’s first time competing was in 2019, when she discovered a strong desire to not only keep growing her skills in riding (specifically jumping), but to go as fast as she could on the back of a horse. She continued to compete and this year, April 22 to 24, Shaylyn competed on 18 year-old Lipizzaner gelding General in the Amberlea Meadows Spring Welcome Horse Show against riders of all ages, but all at the same level of jumping. “At the very end, we had a jump-off where we had to memorize two patterns. The first time we had to go as fast as we could without hitting rails, and the second time was just against time, so we could go as fast as we could.” On Friday, April 22, Shaylyn earned a third place ribbon jumping 2’3” and 2’6”. On Saturday, April 23, she earned first and second place ribbons, jumping 2’ 3” and 2’ 6”; and on Sunday, a fourth place ribbon. She also brought home the Reserve Champion ribbon which is based on the total points throughout the competition. “My coach can put me up to any height that I have jumped because she knows I am comfortable jumping at that height, but maybe not any higher (at that point). She knows I can now jump three feet and four feet–she will put me in that height group now.” Shaylyn hopes to be competing at the 2’11” to

when I am riding. I feel like myself. The connection I have with General is like he is my one and only. He has been there for me for so many years. He knows when I am sad, happy, angry. I just jump on him and ride and it helps. If I am feeling scared, I go in the pasture and he comes over and puts his head on me and hugs me,” smiled Shaylyn. “He knows me a lot.” That is not to say Shaylyn doesn’t show the horse a great deal of respect, and always keeps in the back of her mind that it is an animal, unable to express in words what it is thinking. “They don’t really know, so they speak in their language, which may be bucking.” Despite her share of ups and downs, quite literally having fallen or been thrown off a few times, Shaylyn knows that General will stop and wait for her to gather herself and get back on. “It’s important to not freak out or you will freak them out.” Her longtime goal is to one day own and operate a sanctuary of her own to help animals, specifically horses. For now, she is very content learning and growing with the sport as well as being an important part of the stable family.

2’11.5” range by the end of May, and on the back of a horse, that stands an average of 60 to 63 inches. “I love challenges and I love speed, going fast,” smiled Shaylyn, who hopes to compete throughout the summer. “When I am out on the course, I feel such passion and know that he (General) is going to jump it. But if he knocks down a rail, that’s okay because I love him anyway.” Throughout the competition, Shaylyn reassures the horse with pats on the neck and endearing “Good boy” remarks. “Horses can feel your energy too. When I am scared at a jump, General knows to calm down so I can gather my reins and get my focus. The next thing I know, I am over the jump and I feel safe and free again.” In this particular competition, the competitors and their horses had to remain at the competition grounds and be responsible for everything besides the competition itself. “We had to clean stalls, feed and bathe the horses. We woke up every morning

at 6 a.m., drove out to the stable and stayed all day and did chores including a late evening horse check.” Besides training in dressage, jumping, hunter and cross country, and ultimately competing, Shaylyn spends a great deal of time with her very own horse, Sedona, an almost four-year-old Arabian/draft mare, that she purchased. Shaylyn has been purchasing project ponies for awhile now, spending time breaking and working with the horse then turning around and selling them at a higher price enabling her with some funds to attend competitions, buy horse related items and other ponies. The ponies are purchased half and half with stable owner Brittany, which allows Shaylyn an opportunity to not only grow skills in horse ownership and business, but spend hours working and training around the horse. “That is how I got Sedona,” said Shaylyn. “I bought her as a project horse, but fell in love, so then I just bought her full out.” Currently, Shaylyn is also working with two oth-

er project ponies, Flora and Treasure. It may be difficult for someone who has not spent a lot of time around a horse to understand the trust that develops and is imperative between horse and rider. When Shaylyn talks about her horse and the incredible amount of time she spends around the horses, her face lights up. The joy it brings her is obvious. “I feel free and happy

“Since this was only my second horse show, I was really nervous but I tried not to show it. I was teaching the girls that it will be okay. I really enjoyed helping the younger girls.” Shaylyn epitomizes that hard work, dedication and love for a sport pays off, not only in ribbons, but in a sense of accomplishment and a truly incredible friendship with a fourlegged royal animal.

How to improve flea beetle management

We’re thrilled that this event can resume once again!

By Keith Gabert, Canola Council of Canada

Flea beetles can do a lot of damage in a short time. To avoid beetle shock, growers and agronomists across the Prairies will want to scout as soon as seedlings emerge, and check often – especially in crops advancing slowly. Seed treatments usually provide effective protection as long as canola reaches the three- to fourleaf stage in three to four weeks. Slow-growing crops under intense flea beetle pressure will likely require foliar insecticide. In 2021, dry conditions were ideal for flea beetles (especially warm and dry). Unfortunately, these conditions also slowed the crop, leaving small canola plants vulnerable for longer. The 2021 experience will have many canola growers on high alert for 2022. The spray, or action, threshold for flea beetles is when average leaf area loss exceeds 25 per cent across the field. With a slow-growing crop and plant stands below five to eight plants per square foot, a lower action threshold may be appropriate. To assess leaf area loss, scout for damage in a few spots in each field, checking 10 plants in each spot. Flea beetles tend to prefer fresh new leaves. If cotyledons

are chewed up but newest leaves show very little feeding, then plants may be outgrowing the threat or seed treatments may be having an effect (or both). If the first true leaves are not present, flea beetles may be nipping them off at the growing point. Also check for stem damage, especially in cool or windy weather. Plants with extensive stem feeding could be assessed at 100 per cent leaf area loss. Scout daily in areas approaching the action threshold. With a day or two of warm, dry conditions, damage can escalate well beyond the threshold. Spraying is likely required if flea beetle damage exceeds the threshold, flea beetles are still feeding and the crop has not reached the four-leaf stage. Improve spray results

Use pesticides regis-

tered for flea beetles in canola. Refer to product labels for proper use instructions. Consider the weather. Insecticide will be effective on cooler days as long as the flea beetles are active. Malathion is the only product that requires a minimum temperature of 18 to 20°C. Other product labels say to apply when flea beetles are active, but to avoid the warmest parts of the day. Some pyrethroid labels (Decis, for example) say they should not be applied when temperatures are above 25°C. However, if conditions are cool and wet, don’t bother spraying anything. Flea beetles don’t like rain, and will take cover in the soil and leaf litter. Product labels also say not to spray if rain is likely within one hour. Use nozzles that pro-

vide good coverage. Lowdrift nozzles are well-suited for weed control but not flea beetle control. A dedicated sprayer pass with nozzles that produce smaller droplets will provide the coverage needed for improved flea beetle results.
