So far, eight-year-old Brooklyn Goettler’s little life has been filled with unimaginable challenges that she has faced head on with a smile as big as her exuberant personality and thirst for life. Through a barrage of surgeries, hospital visits, a boatload of medications and continual monitoring by outstanding medical professionals, Brooklyn has also had the unwavering support of her loving family and friends.

Brooklyn’s story By Lori Larsen

Vivacious eight-yearold Brooklyn Goettler flits around the living room like a beautiful butterfly, landing for mere seconds before flying off to the next point of interest. While perhaps a bit smaller in stature than most other children her age, Brooklyn’s larger than life character makes up for it, as she bubbles with excitement over every little thing. But it has been a long haul for this little girl, who was born with challenges that most adults would find insurmountable. “Brooklyn was born with holes in her intestine,” explained Brooklyn’s grandmother and guardian Michelle Goettler. “She had to have surgery to cut down her intestine so there were no holes.” During further testing the doctors discovered she also had lesions in her head, causing traumatic seizures. “She has not had a seizure since she was three,” said Michelle adding that she is on seizure medication that she will have to take for the rest of her life. Throughout her short little life, Brooklyn has been in and out of the Stollery Children’s Hospital enduring checkups, testing and ultimately 23 surgeries with the latest taking place on June 13, where that tiny little person received five transplants including: pancreas, liver, small and large colon and half of her stomach. “It was all done in one surgery and took around seven and a half hours,” recalled Michelle. “She will be on anti-rejection medication for the rest of her life.” Michelle said that Brooklyn’s spleen was also removed in order to make room for the transplants. Once Brooklyn cleared the June 13 anniversary date of the transplant surgery, she was booked for her 24th surgery, a reverse ostomy, which will likely take place in the summer after she has a bone scan, blood work, CT scan and ultrasound. Yet to anyone lucky enough to meet this incredible little person, she seems totally unscathed. She is by all accounts just an active eight-year-old who has a zest for life and will to live it to its fullest. “She is a tough little peanut,” smiled Michelle. Through all of these surgeries she has remained not only tough but positive which in part is due to Michelle and Brooklyns’ aunt Sara (Goettler) and the motions they go through to prepare Brooklyn. “We do her prep for positivity and happiness. So when she goes into surgery

Lori Larsen, Camrose Booster Eight-year-old Brooklyn Goettler gives a big thumbs up to the Bullying ENNS Division 2 members for their support.

she is less scared and is feeling positive and happy,” explained Michelle. Sara added that when ever Brooklyn is going through a surgery or procedure, they do everything to keep things positive and reassure Brooklyn that this is to help make her better and that they (Sara and Michelle) will be there when she comes out. “Being positive has had such an impact on her healing and her understanding of what is going on with her. She is one of those kids where you have to tell her what is going on,” said Sara. And it seems to be working because three days after her multiple transplant surgery, Brooklyn announced to Michelle that she wanted to walk. “The nurses and physio helped her to do a few steps from the bed to the wheelchair day by day,’ said Michelle. “By the next week she was walking out to the hallway where the nurses were. The nurses had put stickers on the wall as a scavenger hunt.” Brooklyn was determined and she wasn’t about to let this slow her down. “She came out of it like a trooper the doctors were shocked. They said that usually children her age are in bed in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) for three months – they don’t want to get up. The doctor referred to her as a miracle child.” If Brooklyn is a miracle then Sara and Michelle are the keepers of that miracle. They are that consistency of support and love that has kept Brooklyn on the road to her own recovery. They balance each other out,

Sara the self proclaimed voice of reason with Michelle at the wheel. Both Michelle and Sara have been caring for Brooklyn since she was born and have been there every step and every stitch of the way. They have had to take courses provided by the Stollery on Brooklyn’s medical and every day care, including how to administer a slew of medications which currently consist of seven in the morning, one at noon, one at 3 p.m. and six in the evening. At the beginning when Brooklyn was a baby Michelle admits she was scared. “I am not a nurse and I had to be administering her medication and her TPN (total parenteral nutrition, the medical term for infusing a specialized form of food through a vein intravenously), her ostomy bag and her MIC-KEY gastrostomy feeding tube. With the completion of the multiple transplant surgery came the removal of the TPN and MIC-KEY tube from Brooklyn’s stomach which was placed in her nose. “Most of the medical processes are going away here and there. Eventually she will have her own life again she will be able to go into a swimming pool,” beamed Michelle. Brooklyn’s story is one of courage, strength, love and compassion and reaches far beyond the boundaries of her family. As a motorcycle rider, Michelle has been a long time friend with local Camrosian Gordie McLean, the president of the Bullying ENNS Division 2 (Camrose and area). Continued on page 10

Ballet Camrose June 24 is the Happiest Day You may have heard of Dr. Cliff Arnall. He identified Blue Monday–the third Monday of January–as the most depressing day of the year. At least in short, nights are long, it’s still winter, holiday bills have arrived, and you’ve already lapsed on all those good resolutions you made. Plus, it’s Monday. Happily, Dr. Arnall has also identified Yellow Day–the happiest day of the year. This year Yellow Day is Friday, June 24–coming right up! Others besides Dr. Arnall (I couldn’t find the names) have developed a scientific-ish happiest day of the year “formula:” O + (NxS) + Cpm/T + He. O stands for Outdoor activity and N is for connection with Nature, both of which are easy in this season. S is for Socializing with neighbours and friends. Cpm stands for childhood positive memories of happy summers. T is the average temperature, which is usually warm, but not too warm. He is for holiday expected. In summary, weather, economic and social factors come together to create a formula for the fourth Friday in June as the happiest day of the year. A comfortable temperature The average temperature in June is usually moderate– not too cold; not too hot–creating a pleasant environment. As well, we can usually expect moderate rainfall–enough to refresh the air and keep things growing, but not so much that it’s depressing. More daylight hours That translates into more daylight hours for outdoor activities. The long summer evenings are a special joy in June. The sun plays a very important role in the human body. Its light helps our bodies produce serotonin and other hormones that enhance happiness. The sun’s rays directly affect our state of mind, how we fall asleep and the energy we have. The sun is one of the best medicines for the state of mind, and at this time in June we have more sunlight than ever. Holidays are coming It’s fun to plan summer holidays. For school-age people, two months of no classes is fun to anticipate. For adults, it’s fun to plan and anticipate holiday trips or morethan-usual fun activities. And adults also have memories of happy childhood summers. Looking forward to holidays is sometimes almost as fun as the actual holiday–definitely a mood lifter. Extra income Students in particular can look forward to earning extra income in the summer, with more hours available to work for pay rather than work for study. Non-students too may have opportunities to earn extra income doing jobs that are not available in the winter. Money can’t buy happiness, but extra money is a factor that helps to increase levels of happiness. That directly affects our state of mind in a good way. Extra social time Some of us are looking forward to summer visits with family or friends we don’t see very often. For many people, it’s a real pleasure to have extra time with people we treasure, but don’t often see in person. After two years of isolation, looking forward to this summer’s prospect of “live and in person” contact is a special delight. *** What are you most looking forward to this summer? Outdoor time? Long daylight evenings? Holidays? Extra income? Time with treasured people? Something else? Whatever you’re most looking forward to, happy Happiest Day on Friday June 24! *** I’d love to hear from you. If you have comments about this column or suggestions for future topics, send an email to Bonnie@BonnieHutchinson.com. I’ll happily reply within one business day.

The Coldwell Banker garage sale supporting Canine Love Dog Rescue event held on June 4 was by all accounts a success, especially for one family who took home a brand new family member. Pictured left to right are Amanda, four-year-old Zachary, six-year-old Declan and Patrick Scherger holding the adorable little puppy they adopted there that day.

By Murray Green OLMP football player Brad Rodin earned a spot on the Team Alberta U18 football team that is off to nationals in BC July 6. After spending his minor football with the Camrose Buffaloes, he played for the OLMP Royals for the past two years. The Grade 11 student is very excited about playing at the high level. “When you play 12-man football you are put into positions that fit your abilities. At OLMP with six-man football you tend to play all positions. They are completely different roles. I can play a receiver role where I can use my speed, agility and athletic abilities. All that has helped me so when I go to places like Football Alberta, I can try out at dline, I can excel. I can use my skills from other positions to gain an advantage. It gives me skills that other people don’t have,” said Brad, who has played the sport for eight years. He made Team Alberta as a defensive tackle. “With six-man, everyone has to be an athlete and cover the entire field. In 12-man, you have your own responsibilities and you rely on others to do their job,” said Brad, who was the only six-man player to make Team Alberta. “He has played every position in six-man that there is. We needed him to play quarterback in Breton because of injuries. He has played every position except kicker. It just made him quicker and a better athlete. Being with the Buffaloes, I had the opportunity to watch him grow every year,” noted OLMP coach Laurie Anderson. “When I play d-line in

six-man, I’m like the only guy so I have more responsibilities. In 12-man my responsibilities gets narrowed and I can focus what I need to do. I’m with three other guys and they have to do their job and I have to do mine,” explained Brad. “The Team Alberta trials started in late April or early May. They had a north camp in Edmonton with 260 football players. The south camp had more than 300 so in total about 610 players,” said Brad. “Then they narrowed that down to 150 and brought the players to Red Deer for a camp three weeks ago (late May). They narrowed it to the top 54 and now 40. To make the final 40 is huge because it is an opportunity to go to the Canada Cup and play the highest level for U18 football. It’s phenomenal to go up against all of the best football players from other provinces. I know players can get scholarship offers on the spot from universities,” said Brad. “This is his opportunity to play on a national stage. This tournament will feature the best players in the country and for him to be included is pretty phenomenal,” added mom Helen. This opens doors for playing university football. “It is a big adjustment to go from playing in six-man league football to playing against the best 12-man players in Alberta. It’s not about me being the best, it’s that I can play with the best. I have to earn my spot to be the best,” added Brad. The advantage of coming back to play another year of high school is to become a leader. “I saw it last year, where he would help younger players be better.

Better as a player and an athlete,” said Helen. “It’s awesome for me to be a leader on the team. As players graduate, I want to set up leaders on the team so it trickles down and it builds the program to be solid in the league,” shared Brad. “In addition to the U18 team, he made the allstar team for the six-man team. From those players they chose a team to play against the Saskatchewan six-man team. They played last Sunday in Lacombe. In the final they were tied 3030 at half time, but Alberta came back to win it 54-36,” revealed Brad’s dad Mike. Brad has had several coaches that have had such a huge influence on him. “Laurie is one as she has been with me since I started football, but I had a few amazing coaches during my time in the Buffaloes program that were responsible for creating my passion for the sport and inspiring me to be the best I can be,” he said. Team Alberta players are bused out to Kelowna on July 6. After a few practice days, the opening game is on July 11 against BC, one of the tougher teams. “We play on July 14 and 17, but we don’t know who we play because it depends who wins or loses. My goal is to be in the gold medal game,” he added. “To play at a high level and receive a scholarship is the ultimate goal.” The 16 year old trains five or six days a week to prepare for the Canada Cup and next season. “It is a great opportunity to play at the highest level. It is going to be a lot of fun and a huge honour,” concluded Brad.

City provides explanation on off-site levies By Lori Larsen

City of Camrose Planning and Development manager Aaron Leckie provided a detailed report to City Council on off-sites levies (OSL) during the June 6 Committee of the Whole Meeting. Leckie began by explaining that an off-site levy is a cash contribution to the City by developers to help pay for infrastructures for growth. “Developers contribute into pools of money including sanitary, storm, water and transportation to benefit all areas of the City. “One of the underpinnings that is important for understanding the model is that growth should largely pay for growth and the impacts of development don’t stop at the boundaries of the development,” said Leckie citing an example of how the cost of developing roads within a developers site (subdivision) would be 100 per cent covered by the developer; but also, for example, an intersection directly outside the developed area that provides benefits to that developed area, but also benefits other areas within the city would be in part the responsibility of the developer. The off-site areas in Camrose are broken up into 140 unique areas some of which are shared with Camrose County. “One of the major changes identified in the April 19 Workshop, is a change on the assumption of growth. The growth rate was adjusted from two per cent to one per cent,” said Leckie. “As growth is compounded annually, it might be a 50 per cent drop in year one, but because of that compounded growth rate we are really talking about a substantial change to the amount of land that is go-

ing to be developed over the 25 years of this model. “Looking at the population growth rate it is a difference of about 6,700 people by 2046 and the population of the City of Camrose, instead of 30,500 a population of 23,500.” Leckie added that along with that is the removal of a lot of projects that are going to be needed because of that revision to growth rate. Leckie described the areas the City expects to see growth/development because of the ability to easily service these areas, as well as the proximity of the areas to existing services, which he said lowers offsite levy rates and therefore encourages development in those areas including the following. North areas: close to Creekside and Victoria Park and along 53 Street. West areas: expansion along 48 Avenue (commercial) as well as continued growth of West Park and Cascades subdivisions. Southwest area: (largest growth area) near Valleyview, Enevold Quarter, Valleyview West and another quarter occupying lands west of 68 Street and south of Camrose Drive (commercial and residential). South central area: south of Camrose Drive in Creekview area as well as some industrial south of the NuEdge Building and Pioneer trucking. East central area: small section of industrial land in the quarter section along 39 Street. Southeast area: anticipated to accommodate most industrial growth in the Railway Junction Area. “This area has a different level of servicing with sanitary and water being deferred and not required and those off-site levies also deferred. This is the area

that both the City and the County expect to see most of the industrial growth.” Councillor Agnes Hoveland inquired about the Southeast growth area and potential industry developing there not needing services. “How then do they access water and take care of sewer?” Leckie responded, “Most likely it would be hauled. Depending on the scale of that development they may see some benefit of tying into the City’s water or sanitary. If they are large users they may see that as more affordable in the long term than constantly hauling in and out water and sanitary. If they do then the water and sanitary rates do apply.” Leckie said the types of infrastructure consist mainly of water, sanitary, storm and transportation; but other categories considered in the model that muncipalities have the ability to collect on include: new or expanded community recreation, fire hall and police station facilities and libraries. “The total cost of all projects beyond the 25 year, all projects in the model, is about $483 million. With $29 million beyond 25 years (2046) based on construction estimates from 2019.” The report also includes the off-site levy rates determined by each area on a per hectare basis. “The weighted average for the City of Camrose is $162,335. The reason we are using weighted average is because these are the areas that we think are likely to develop. There are areas that are more expensive that are close to the urban area that are not included in the weighted average because the costs are so much higher. Comparisons to other municipalities were

provided; however, Leckie said in his opinion the best indicator as to whether or not off-site levy rates are affordable in a municipality is if development is occurring. “And the City of Camrose does continue to see development in residential, commercial and industrial areas. When we have those conversations with developers, off-site levies are always in concern but not a concern to the point where a development project doesn’t proceed because off-site levies.” Councillor Don Rosland inquired with City of Camrose Community Development general manager Patricia MacQuarrie as to whether or not, at the conferences she attends, off-site levy costs are a hot topic. MacQuarrie responded that the off-site levy costs are not necessarily a hot topic but that off-site levy and contribution costs are a standard requirement for any investment attractions package the City puts together. Hoveland asked if there is a point where the City would price itself off the market for attracting development. “I think we are at a point that we are comfortable with” said MacQuarrie, adding that it is a selling feature to investors that the City has a robust offsite levy program in place to demonstrate that the City is prepared for future growth, and that the City has the funding available to support investment in the community. Leckie concluded with an OSL review schedule projecting the OSL bylaw receive three readings by City Council June 20 and second and third reading by Camrose County Council June 28, effective date of bylaw July 1.

“I did a few Bullying ENNS rides with them,” said Michelle. “I believe and support their mandate that every child matters.” So when it came even closer to Michelle’s heart, with Brooklyn, it was a no brainer for the Bullying ENNS team, they would do something special to help this amazing little girl. “When it comes to bullying Brooklyn has not been bullied but she is the type of girl that if she were bullied she would not understand,” emoted Michelle who has bore witness to other children being bullied and through a sixth sense has come to know when a child needs help. “There are different special needs–there are some that do understand and will go tell their mom (or whomever) or they will be sad. I can tell that they understand they are being bullied. But with Brooklyn, she doesn’t understand. She just loves everyone, she is a social butterfly.” Which no doubt worries Michelle, concerned that Brooklyn will be the brunt of cruel and unacceptable bullying. “She is pretty smart at doing things but we just don’t know when or if she will be able to process the fact that someone is being mean or cruel–bullying. “With these riders that stand up for these kids like Brooklyn that don’t understand it is so important. These kids–all kids, need to have that feeling that they are important.” On Saturday, June 25, Bullying ENNS Division 2 will be hosting their first Bullying ENNS Ride to Support Special Needs and Brooklyn will be the guest of honour. The event will begin at 9 a.m. with a pancake breakfast (by donation) at Camrose Regional Exhibition. There will be fun for children, some live entertainment and some Bullying ENNS swag. Then a ceremonial “kickstands up” at noon for a 300-kilometre ride (including fee for the poker run ride) ending at the Ferintosh Hotel. All riders are welcome to enjoy a wonderful ride with all proceeds from the event assisting Brooklyn and helping to build awareness of all the good done by the Bullying ENNS initiative. For more information on the event contact Gordie McLean by telephoning or texting at 780-878-1368 or Colin (Bullying Enns Division 2 Sergeant of Arms) at 204-870-3032 or visit Bullying ENNS Events page on Facebook. The rewards of good can always be found in the smile of a child.

Vets, door knocking, Made in Alberta By Jackie Lovely, MLA Camrose Constituency

It has been a productive few months since we introduced this year’s budget, and new local projects are shaping up to help make our communities even better and more welcoming. Over the past three years, our government has doubled down on investment attraction, economic growth, and job creation. From tax cuts to local construction projects, every investment in our communities is an investment in Alberta’s future. The 2022 Provincial Construction Program invests in projects that will help make our highways safer and our water systems cleaner. The plan, which is scheduled to be completed over the next three years, includes major capital projects, bridge and highway maintenance, water infrastructure, and slide repair projects which will improve the lives of people who live and work in these areas. Some of these projects are happening right on our doorstep! Just outside Camrose, we are investing in improvements to the roundabout at Highway 13 and Highway 56, which will improve connections between our communities. We are also funding construction improvements at

the Pioneer Legacy Junction on Highway 834. On Highway 855, next to Big Knife Provincial Park, funding will help support rehabilitation of the Battle River Bridge. These projects are currently in the design phase. Once complete, these improvements will allow drivers to have confidence in their safety and the safety of their families. Improving our roads is important, but we are also directing our efforts to expand support for vulnerable Albertans, right at home. Often, seniors have unique needs that can’t always be addressed by a one-size-fits-all approach. Because of this, our team is partnering with community groups to expand access to mental health supports for seniors. We are committing more than $6.3 million to organizations who provide mental health and addiction supports to seniors. This funding will help these folks and their volunteers assist seniors and their caregivers with supports ranging from home care to training staff to respond to unique situations. My advocacy for seniors and their families has given me the opportunity to meet people of all ages, all across

It is our job to make sure that no one falls through the gaps, and that seniors can feel that their needs are being met, so they can continue to experience fulfillment in their daily lives. This investment is another step forward in building a comprehensive, recovery-oriented system of care that helps everyone get the support they need, when they need it.

Changes to local landfill By Lori Larsen

The City of Camrose recently announced changes to the operations of the Camrose Regional Landfill. Over the past year, the Camrose Regional Solid Waste Authority (the Authority) which is comprised of elected officials from the City of Camrose, Camrose County and the Village of Bittern Lake, has been examining options for future waste management operations at the Camrose Regional Landfill. During a meeting held on May 30, the Authority decided to transition from the current Camrose Regional Landfill operation to a Transfer Station operation. “Careful thought and discussion went into this decision to ensure costs and liability would be mitigated and service level disruption kept at a minimum,” stated Authority chair Kevin Hycha. “The Landfill Authority voted unanimously to move from the existing landfill operation to a transfer station–operation. Additional waste diversion activities at the site, such as composting and recycling, will continue to operate.” The Camrose Regional Landfill has been in operation since 1984 and is made of 19 “cells.” The current cell (the area for the waste) is reaching capacity so the Authority needed to approve the construction of a new cell or consider other operational models. In order for a landfill to be self-sustaining, user fees, also known as tipping fees, must generate enough revenue to cover the entire life-cycle costs for the facility. Life-cycle costs include annual operating expenses, cell construction costs, closure costs, and post-closure monitoring costs, which are ongoing for at least 25 years after closing a cell. Significant increases to

the closure and post closure costs of cells at the Camrose Regional Landfill were identified in 2021. As well, internal reviews of lifecycle costs for the Landfill indicated that, in order to sustain the Landfill operation, the tipping fees would be required to be increased to a point that makes the Landfill noncompetitive. “The Camrose Landfill was suitable in its day, but as Camrose grew the long narrow design, proximity to the City limits and Stoney Creek, the high water table and limited Air Space (volume of waste that can be disposed of) at the Landfill makes this site very difficult to manage,” said Hycha. A transfer station allows users to bring waste to the existing site and drop it off into large bins that will then be transferred to a larger regional landfill rather than disposing of it onsite. For City residents, there will be no impact to the current curbside service from this decision, however, they may see an increase to their waste collection bill in 2023 as the current contract for curbside collection expires at the end of 2022 and these fees have remained the same since 2016. Users bringing waste to the Landfill will see an increase to tipping fees beginning July 1st. “Given the imminent fee increases and the need to extend the operational life of the current cell, it is recommended that large volume haulers consider the use of alternate regional landfills such as West Dried Meat Lake Landfill or Beaver Regional Landfill for their waste,” explained City of Camrose Infrastructure general manager Kris Johnson. Design work for the transfer station will begin shortly and is expected to be operational by fall 2023.

CELEBRATING

Canada Day Title Sponsors

Silver Sponsors

By Lori Larsen

The City of Camrose is once again excited to be hosting an inperson Canada Day Celebration on July 1 on the grounds of the Camrose and District Centennial Museum. Over the past two years, the Canada Day Celebrations Committee were challenged with finding unique ways to celebrate Canada Day and managed to provide citizens with some fun and safe activities that stayed within the health protocols implemented by the Province, all the while giving citizens an opportunity to celebrate. This year, the committee is delighted to once again be offering a ton of family fun included in the following lineup. Start the day with a pancake breakfast hosted by the Swan City Lions Club, served from 8 a.m. until 10:45 a.m. at the Camrose Community Centre. Then head over to the opening ceremonies held at 11 a.m. at the stage located south of the museum building. Spend the rest of the afternoon enjoying old fashioned games, an obstacle course, craft tables, face painting, photo booth, tours and demonstrations featuring the Camrose and District Centennial Museum, mascot photos, balloon artists and then a sweet treat of Canada Day Cupcakes. As you take in all the festivities, have a seat and take a break enjoying a variety of entertainment during the afternoon Stage. At noon, take in the colours and quick steps of the Camrose Veselka Ukrainian Dance and Studia Shumka Ukrainian Dancers. Then catch one of or all of the Hula Hoop Circus shows at 12:30 p.m., 1:30 p.m. or 3:30 p.m. At 1 p.m., watch the Camrose Academy of Dance perform, and at 2 p.m., Ballet Camrose will delight you with their dances. For a little musical interlude, enjoy Charly Doll on stage at 2:30 p.m. then rounding up the day of entertainment be sure to take in the majestic Edmonton Métis Traditional Dancers. As the evening draws near and in anticipation of a sky filled with spectacular fireworks, come down to the Rudy Swanson park (Recreation Centre Parking Lot) and be serenaded by the sweet melodies of Hay Lakes own Travis Dolter and his band as well as some tunes to get you rocking by Rose City Rollers. Finishing off the night will be the ever popular display of fireworks that not only light up the skies but the eyes of the beholders. Come out and enjoy a day to celebrate this amazing country we call home.

Cougars sweep Expos By Murray Green

The Camrose Cougars U18 swept the Edmonton Expos in three straight games. The fourth match was rained out on June 12. Camrose rallied a lead late in the opening game in a 15-5 victory. The game was tied at five with the Cougars batting in the bottom of the fourth when Nick Hilgersom grounded out, scoring one run. A sacrifice bunt by Jake Popowich scored another run. Camrose pulled away for good with two runs in the fourth inning. In the fourth Eric Elines singled to score one run. Chance Morbeck, Max Logelin, Popowich, Griffin Van Petten, and Ben Pullen each had RBls in the big sixth inning. Jackson Goossen garnered the win for Camrose. The righty went six innings, allowing five runs on four hits, while striking out seven. In the second game of the doubleheader, Camrose won 10-1. The game was tied at one in the top of the fifth when Elines doubled to score two runs. Camrose pounded out 17 hits. Ben Pullen, Morbeck, Max Logelin, Elines, and Hilgersom all managed multiple hits. Pullen went three-forthree at the plate to lead the offence. Dylan Soch was the winning pitcher as he allowed five hits and one run over seven innings, striking out seven and walking one. The third contest had a movie-script ending in a 1312 wild affair. Camrose seized victory in dramatic walk-off fashion, thanks to a single in the bottom of the ninth off the bat of Morbeck. Elines went four-forfive at the plate with a double in the first, singled in the third, fifth and sixth innings. In the bottom of the seventh inning, Camrose tied the game at 12 when Nate Gotaas doubled to score one run. Camrose put up four runs in the third inning. Camrose collected 13 hits with Elines, Jared Bendfeld, and Hilgersom earning multiple hits. Logelin was the winning pitcher by allowing two hits and no runs over four and a third innings, while striking out three and walking one. Justin Kushnerick started the game surrendered 10 runs on seven hits over four and two-thirds innings, striking out seven. The U18 squad will be at home for games on June 25 and 26 at Harry Andreassen Field in Kin Park in what is billed as Sponsor Night. The Cougars host the Dawgs team in a four game series: 5 and 8 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Sunday.

Proposed federal meat labelling

Cornerstone Plaza 6800 48 Ave Unit 134 Camrose, AB 780-672-0050

By Murray Green Agriculture minister Nate Horner and health minister Jason Copping reacted to new proposed Health Canada labelling requirements for ground beef and pork. “Alberta livestock producer associations have requested an exemption from proposed federal labelling requirements for ground meats, similar to exemptions being offered for other nutritious, single-ingredient foods like milk, eggs, vegetables and other meats. Alberta’s government supports this exemption. “Ground meat, like other whole foods, is a healthy and affordable staple in the diet of many Canadians. Ottawa’s scientifically baseless labelling proposal for ground meat will unfairly affect families struggling with high costs of living and would be an extra kick to producers already working to get back on their feet,” said Horner, Alberta Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Rural Economic Development. “Every Canadian should take pride in the fact that Alberta’s livestock producers drive economic growth by feeding the world with high-quality meat. Imposing these warning labels sends a negative message to customers and makes our producers less competitive in the global economy,” he added. “We are working closely with the Alberta Beef Producers, the Alberta Cattle Feeders Association and Alberta Pork to support these industries. Alberta’s government has expressed our concern to our federal counterparts and will continue to stand up for livestock producers in our province,” Horner shared. “This decision was made without consultation with the provinces, which have equivalent expertise in nutrition and food science to that of the federal government. It’s inconsistent with the treatment of other products; it’s not good policy, and it should be reversed,” said Copping, minister of health.

Battle River Watershed Alliance encouraging youth to get involved By Lori Larsen

Water plays a vital role in all of our lives and in fact it gives us life. For that reason and so many more, it is incumbent upon all of us to continue learning about how we can protect and preserve this invaluable commodity. Battle River Watersheds Alliance (BRWA) is a not-for-profit organization working with people who live, work, and play in the Battle River and Sounding Creek watersheds to ensure a stable economy, healthy natural areas, and resilient communities. In an effort to continually manage the health and future well-being of our watersheds, BRWA conducts research, works with and advocates to govern-

ment bodies and provides programs and eduction to build awareness. One such program is the BRWA, Caring for our Watersheds, which asks students in Grades 7-12 to answer the question “What can you do to improve your watershed? “The purpose of the contest is simple,” explained BRWA education lead Kandra Forbes. “We want students to be actively involved in their community. The goal is to encourage students to learn about their local watershed and be inspired to make improvements to the land, air and water. “With community and school support, we have seen the creativity and de-

termination students have for protecting and preserving the environment. It’s inspiring when they turn their ideas into reality.” Students develop a written proposal describing their project idea which is then judged by watershed experts and educators, resulting in a selection of the top 10 proposals. Historically, the finalists have shared their ideas in-person at a final competition with a 5-minute verbal presentation. However, this year, the ten groups presented their ideas virtually to a panel of judges. Along with the excitement of having their proposals heard by a panel of experts there is also $10,000 available to imple-

ment projects. “The program sponsor Nutrien works with local organizations in 10 regions across Canada, the USA, and Argentina to offer this contest,” noted Forbes. In past years BRWA has been a strong supporter of the program encouraging and ultimately providing great representation from students in the BRWA area. “This year BRWA took over coordination for the entire Alberta contest.” Forbes said that this year’s response to the contest has been incredible with 275 written proposals from 534 students from 24 schools. Camrose students Tri Nguyen, Rena Warren and

Mary Searle received Honourable Mention for their Project Capture proposal. “The Caring for our Watersheds competition is a great fit for project-based learning in both junior and senior high classes, and fits well into the science and social science curriculum,” said Forbes. “It has supported students from all over the world to take positive actions to help their environment. The contest is also open to 4-H and other clubs as well.” For more information on the program or about local students’ proposals contact Forbes (Alberta program coordinator) at kandra@ battleriverwatershed.ca, or visit www.Caringforour Watersheds.com.

Rotary Pavilion, over the finish line By Lori Larsen

On June 16 people gathered under the new Rotary Pavilion located directly east of the Stoney Creek Centre, to celebrate the addition of the facility that not only provides a shelter for individual and group use, but is a tribute to the rich history of the surrounding area. Rotary Club of Camrose president Dan Cole welcomed all in attendance to the “finish line” celebration and invited City of Camrose councillor Lucas Banack (on behalf of Mayor PJ Stasko and City Council) and MLA Jackie Lovely, on behalf of the Provincial government, to offer congratulations.

Cole also paid homage to the incredible work and dedication of Rotarians Shirley Rostad and Ron Grue in seeing the project through from vision to reality. “Shirley Rostad played an instrumental part along the way from start to finish in coordinating, planning, funding, researching and working with the City and build crew. “Ron Grue has been instrumental at the build stage and worked relentlessly through sun or rain to complete the build in a month with the help of fellow Rotarians, volunteers, community businesses and trades. Truly an amazing accomplishment.”

been an honour to find out so much about our community. It is quite an incredible city. From what we are endowed by nature to the incredible way our community pulled together over the last 120 years to create today’s vibrant community.” Rostad spoke about the specific topics featured in the Heritage Panels and subsequently on the website. “Our goal was to showcase Camrose and particularly this valley area and we were very limited with the amount we could include on each panel. We tried to make the panels interesting and informative.” In conclusion Rostad said. “Our hopes for this

Cole thanked the four major funders of the project including: the Alberta Government, Arnold and Susan Malone, Wildrose Coop and the City of Camrose, as well as the businesses and families who sponsored the Heritage Panels and all other businesses and individuals who donated time, skills, funds and materials to see the project come to fruition. “It is time to celebrate a project that started as an idea in 2016,” said Cole. “What a wonderful feeling to stand here today and see it in its completion and take a moment to soak in the beauty and natural setting of the pavilion along with the heritage panels.”

Rotarian Shirley Rostad provided an overview of the project, including the process behind the 20 panels honouring the human and natural history of the site that are displayed around the perimeter of the inside of the pavilion and the development of the website. “I thought if we started in February of 2021 we would be finished before the build was finished. I had no concept of how much time it would take to do a good job of the research, writing and finding photos and a millions tasks. But I am thankful to be crossing the finish line today. “I think I speak for all of those who worked on the Heritage showcase. It has

Trader Jack ends up with 1963 Impala By Murray Green Jack Dennison owns a 1963 Chevrolet Impala. “I did some trading to get this car. I started off with a drag car, traded it for a motorcycle, then traded for a Tbucket and was involved in a three-way trade for this car,” explained Jack. “I’m notorious for doing that and being trader Jack,” he laughed. The Chevrolet Impala is a full-sized car built by Chevrolet for model years 1958 to 1985, 1994 to 1996 and 2000 to 2020. “The car was in fairly good shape when I got it. I put in a big block 454 engine, fuel injection, four wheel power disc brakes and automatic transmission. The rear end has been gone through and I have done lots of work to it. I modernized the car a bit,” said Jack. “I wanted to add some comforts and some (a lot of) speed. It was originally a granny grocery-getter with a 283 two-barrel with a three in the tree (manual) transmission, manual brakes and steering. It was literally a plain Jane car and nothing fancy about it. The car only had three options on it when it was new. The extra options were the 283, upgrade from the six cylinder, a clock and a radio. Even though it was an Impala, it was nothing fancy. It wasn’t anything special, so hot roding it was just fine,” said Jack. The Impala was Chevrolet’s popular flagship passenger car and was among the better-selling American-made

MINT IMPALA

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Jack Dennison’s 1963 Chevrolet Impala looks tame on the outside. But, when you unleash its powerful 454 engine, it can go very fast as the name Impala suggests. automobiles in the United States. “It was fun to make all of the changes to it. And it is a very fun car to drive, very quick. I started working on the car four (now five) years ago. I drove the car with the

FUN FACTS The 1963 Impala featured rectilinear styling with an engine-turned aluminum rear taillight panel surrounded by a chrome border on SS models. Engine choice was similar to 1962, with the small-block 283 cubic inch (4.6 L) and 327 cubic inch (5.4 L) V8s most popular. The Sport Sedan featured a new, creased roof line. A new coved instrument panel included simple indicator lights for hot and cold engine conditions. An optional factory tachometer was built into the dashboard, just above the steering wheel. Impala wagons got triple-unit taillights for the first time. A special 427 cubic inch (7.0 L) version of the 409 cubic inch (6.7 L) engine was used in the 1963 Chevrolet Impala Sport Coupe, ordered under Chevrolet Regular Production Option (RPO) Z11. This was a special package created for drag racers and NASCAR and included a 427 with aluminum body parts and a cowl-induction air intake system. The aluminum body parts were fabricated in Flint, Michigan at the facility now known as GM Flint Metal Center. Unlike the later second-generation 427, it was based on the W-series 409 engine, but with a longer 3.65 inch (93 mm) stroke. A high-rise, two-piece aluminum intake manifold and dual Carter AFB carburetors to produce 430 horsepower and 575 pounds per foot of torque. For 1964, the Impala was restyled to a more rounded, softer look. The signature taillight assembly had an “upsidedown U” shaped aluminum trim strip above the taillights, but the individual lights were surrounded by a body-colored panel.

original engine for a year. I put another small engine in it for another year before switching it out for the big block. I slowly moved up and made the changes I wanted to make it better,” shared Jack. For its debut in 1958 the Impala was distinguished from other models by its symmetrical triple taillights. “I really like the fact I can still run around town with it or take the grandchildren for drives to get ice cream. Everybody looks at the car wherever I go,” said Jack. Impala’s started out as a plain car, but soon become an attraction for young drivers. “It is a great car to drive because it is fun. The car, for me, will never be finished. I like to keep making changes and improvements. Eventually, I want to paint it back to the original colour, which was a turquoise blue. Everybody likes the mint green colour, except the owner. I would rather that it goes back to the metallic blue colour. It would look a little richer,” he added. The Impala name was first used for the full-sized 1956 General Motors Motorama show car that bore Corvette-like design cues, espe-

cially the grille. It was named Impala after the graceful African antelope, which was used as the car’s logo. “It was pulled out of a field in the 1980s and a paint job was slapped on it. They didn’t do a very good job, just a home job. I want to do it right.

It is too much time and money for me to do it right now. That is for the future, because it would take me three years for me to do it on my own. I want to drive it too much right now, rather than have it parked,” confessed Jack.

Watch for blue lights By Murray Green Tow truck operators will be allowed to use blue lights to increase their visibility and safety, while working on Alberta highways this summer. Starting June 30, the oneyear pilot project will allow the optional use of blue lights on tow trucks. “I want to thank MLA Brad Rutherford for advocating for this change in his Private Member’s Bill 207. Too many tow truck drivers are involved in collisions or dangerous situations because motorists have difficulty seeing them while they’re working. This pilot project is intended to increase safety for these operators and will help determine the best lighting for tow trucks in Alberta,” said Rajan Sawhney, Minister of Transportation. “I am extremely pleased to see that Minister Sawhney is acting on the concerns raised from the tow truck industry on the importance of blue lights, which I also brought forward in Private Member’s Bill 207. This pilot project will be critical to enhancing roadside safety for not only tow truck operators but the Albertans they are helping. This issue has been supported by stakeholders in the transportation industry and I want to thank all parties involved for their tremendous effort and advocacy,” added Rutherford, MLA for LeducBeaumont. Additional consideration is also being given to include snowplow operators in the pilot this fall. “Every Albertan deserves to be safe at work, even if their office is at the side of the road. We affirm this point and we’re grateful to the government for this announcement. This change is as simple as it is profound, and it will make a lifesaving difference for Alberta’s essential tow operators and the Albertans they’re responding to,” shared Michelle Chimko, president and CEO, Alberta Motor Association. “This is a huge step for-

ward in making our industry safer for roadside assistance workers and the motoring public through increased visibility. The effectiveness of this change will be noticeable and will save Albertans’ lives,” continued Don Getschel, president, Towing and Recovery Association of Alberta and Oil Country Towing. These changes are in addition to new rules to protect highway workers under the Traffic Safety Amendment Act. Starting spring 2023, all motorists travelling in the same direction on multi-lane highways will need to slow down to at least 60 km/h and allow one lane of space, where pos-

sible, when passing stopped emergency vehicles, tow trucks and roadside workers’ vehicles when their lights are flashing. Motorists travelling in both directions on single-lane highways will be required to slow down when passing roadside vehicles and workers. Since December 2019, the Alberta Motor Association reports there have been at least 36 near misses and 14 serious roadside incidents involving Alberta tow trucks and passing vehicles. Between March 2018 and March 2021, there were 128 collisions involving snowplows contracted by Alberta Transportation.

According to reports provided by the Camrose RCMP, on June 14 at approximately 7:40 a.m. Camrose RCMP (as well as Camrose Fire Department) responded to a two vehicle collision near Highway 13 and Highway 21, approximately 500 metres east of the traffic circle. A sedan was travelling eastbound on Highway 21 when it collided with a dump truck travelling westbound on Highway 21. A 55-year-old male from Camrose, and lone occupant of the sedan was pronounced deceased on scene. A 51-year-old male, from Flagstaff County and lone occupant of the dump truck suffered minor injuries that were treated on scene. Camrose Fire Department was also dispatched to the scene of the two vehicle collision, just prior to 7:43 a.m. “Crews arrived on scene to a head on collision between the two vehicles,” reported Camrose Fire Chief Peter Krich. Krich said that EMS and RCMP were already on scene and reports indicated that the driver of the car was killed on impact and the driver of the truck was in the ambulance already being treated and there were no other occupants. “There was no fire around the car but a small fire was detected under the truck engine area and quickly extinguished. Fire department set up traffic control in the area then extricated the deceased person from the driver’s seat of the car.” Traffic was diverted from the collision scene for a period of time while the RCMP Collision Analyst conducted an investigation. Road conditions do not appear to be a factor.

Soaring gas prices stall long road trips By Murray Green

High gas prices are leading to shorter road trips this summer. However, you can do some things to receive better gas mileage. Drivers can ease their pain at the pumps by checking tire inflation monthly and modifying their driving habits. Proper tire inflation and maintenance improve fuel economy, enhance safety, performance and longevity, while protecting the environment. Two-thirds of Canadian drivers will be staying closer to home this summer, according to a new Leger survey for the Tire and Rubber Association of Canada (TRAC; https://tracanada. ca/). The survey finds that 66 per cent of drivers say fuel prices will force them to cancel or limit road trips this summer. Among young drivers aged 18 to 24, that number climbs to 75 per cent. Eight in 10 Canadian drivers also believe high gas fuel prices are here to stay. Nearly all (97 per cent) understand proper tire inflation is essential to vehicle safety; 93 per cent agree that correct tire pressure saves fuel; and 72 per cent recognize correctly inflated tires lessens vehicle emissions and protects the environment. However, the survey findings also reveal a significant disconnect between drivers’ understanding that proper tire inflation improves fuel economy and their knowledge about when and how to measure and set the correct tire pressure. Only 27 per cent of drivers check their tire inflation pressures monthly, the frequency of measurements recommended by tire makers. About 59 per cent are unaware inflation pressures should only be measured when tires are cold. (A vehicle should be stationary for at least three hours or not have been driven more than two kilometres prior to checking tire inflation. Measuring pressures when tires are warm gives an inaccurate reading.) About 34 per cent refer to the air pressure stamped

$

on the tire’s sidewall when identifying the correct pressure for their tires. (The imprinted sidewall pressure is the maximum pressure a tire can contain under maximum load, not the recommended inflation level. Prolonged driving at this inflation pressure may result in uneven tread wear and reduced traction. The correct inflation pressure for your tires is on the vehicle placard, which is commonly located on the driver’s door jamb.) About 14 per cent either rely on visual inspections or do not know how to determine if their tires are inflated properly. (A tire can be under inflated by 20 per cent or more and look normal.) “With these substantial knowledge gaps about tire maintenance, it’s apparent that drivers need more education to improve their fuel economy effectively. With gas prices at all-time highs and no relief in sight thus far, the time has come for all drivers to arm themselves with the knowledge needed to lower fuel costs,” said Carol Hochu, president of TRAC. “Monthly checks to ensure your tires are correctly inflated are the most effective way to achieve the best fuel economy and extract the most value from your tires. Combined with the right driving habits, such as reducing idling, maintaining a steady speed, accelerating gently and coasting to decelerate, these small, simple practices can add up to big improvements in fuel economy. Drivers have the power to fight back against high gas prices by learning these few simple techniques to ensure they are always riding on properly inflated tires,” she added. Industry studies show motorists can improve their gas mileage by 0.6 per cent on average–up to three per cent in some cases–simply by keeping their tires inflated to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended pressure. Additionally, under inflated tires can lower gas mileage by about 0.2 per cent for each one PSI drop in the average pressure of all

Dorothy Joan Marshall (Greenwood)

1956 - 2022 Dorothy Marshall of Duhamel, formerly of the Rosalind district, passed away Wednesday, June 15, 2022, in Camrose. The eldest daughter of Adrian Greenwood and Joan Greenwood, Dorothy lived most of her life in the greater Camrose area. Dorothy will be remembered as Mum, Grandma, Sister, Aunty, Cousin, and Friend to many. Dorothy lived her faith daily, firmly believing our lives should show God’s love. For Dorothy, faith in community took many guises over the years, and many roles, some of which were as a leader: participating in discussions with school boards, advocating as a parent for the value of rural school education, and being a founding board member for the Camrose Women’s Shelter. Dorothy was an educator: sharing her knowledge as a guest speaker at many Ag Society sponsored events, and local “Fall Focus” with her often humorous tales of life on the farm, and speaking to students on organic farming and being strong stewards of the land; as a servant, for decades being that anonymous person who rolled your coins as the treasurer of the “Camrose Merry Christmas Fund”. Dorothy was a long-term member of St. Andrew’s Anglican Church in Camrose, contributing to the Parish in the same manner, with various roles in the Vestry, teaching Sunday School for over 50 years, and serving as church treasurer for many years. More recently Dorothy represented the Diocese of Edmonton serving on the Social Justice Committee, and as the Diocese Representative for the Primate’s Fund, roles that provided wonderful opportunities for her to continue to live out her faith. Celebrating her life are her family, Colby (Myra)Marshall, Lyric, and Gabriel; Robyn (Jon) Thompson, Betsy, Laura, Faith, and Rose; Craig (Abby) Marshall, Beatrice, and Josephine; Alyson (Jordan) Laverne, Payton, Asher, and Rory; and Leah Marshall. Joining with them in celebration are her siblings, Leonard Greenwood (Terumi Sekihara) Sheila (Ron) Hamilton, Irene (Brian) Green, and David (Benita) Greenwood and her dear friends Betty and Al Dyck, along with numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. A service of Thanksgiving will be held Sunday, June 26 at 3 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Anglican Church, 4713-50 Street, Camrose, AB T4V 1P2. Memorial donations may be made in Dorothy’s memory, to the Primates World Relief and Development Fund.

Spring session in review By Damien C. Kurek, MP, Battle River-Crowfoot As Parliament begins to wind down for the summer, I wanted to highlight some of the issues my colleagues and I have been working to address in the last several months. First, a small victory as a result of pressure from industry leaders, stakeholders, and the Conservative Party of Canada, the Liberal Government finally decided to end some federal COVID mandates. On June 20, the vaccination requirement to board a plane or train in Canada will be suspended. This comes after millions of Canadians have been barred from travel, tens of thousands of Canadians being forced out of work, and chaos at airports and borders. The re-introduction of pre-COVID normalcy gives me some hope Canada’s airports can now resolve the many problems that currently exist. In addition, federally regulated transport employers will no longer be required to have mandatory vaccination policies in place for employees. This means more workers for departments in desperate need of help. Immigration can work to address the massive backlog of more than two million cases, including helping Ukrainian refugees and aiding the Afghan interpreters who laid their lives on the line for the protection of Canada. Likewise, more CBSA officers can protect Canada’s borders and address the long lines in Canada’s airports and more passport processing workers to fix the months-long delays. We will also continue to pressure the Liberals to reinstate the more than 1,600 soldiers dishonourably discharged as a result of the mandates. Canada’s finances continue to be in a state of disarray, and Canadians are suffering because of it. Conservatives have proposed practical solutions to lower taxes at the pumps, reduce costs for Canadians, and promote growth in industries like agriculture and energy. Unfortunately, the Liberals refuse to take constructive solutions out of what seems to be spite. As Interim Conservative Leader Candice Bergen recently pointed out, Prime Minister Trudeau “thinks he is hurting Conservatives politically by saying no to our proposals, when in fact he is punishing Canadians with his petty political vengeance.” There was a host of other legislative and committee work that kept MPs busy over the last number of months. I have proudly stood for the people of East Central Alberta each and every day in Parliament. This has included calling for accountability at the Ethics Committee (of which I am a member) and working on important issues at other committees in which I regularly participate. It is unfortunate the Liberals’ legislative agenda works against the values of the people I represent. C-11 includes mechanisms that would allow the government to censor aspects of the Internet, Bill C-5 eliminates penalties for serious offences allowing hardened criminals to serve house arrest, C-21 targets law-abiding firearms owners, and C-19 (as well as other related bills) continue the destructive fiscal path the government has led the country down. These bills are still being debated. On a positive note, there’s been a number of opportunities to support legislation that helps make life better for Canadians. Private Members Bills are one of those items, and although they can be limited in scope and take time, some of which I have been proud to support and co-second. A few of these bills include Bill C-278, which would prevent the government from imposing vaccine mandates; Bill C-230, which would legislate conscience protections; Bill C-224 which would raise awareness and expand support for those who develop cancer as a result of being a firefighter or first responder; Bill C-234, which would eliminate the carbon tax from farm used natural gas; and C-253 which would bring accountability to the Bank of Canada. Additionally, many motions put forward by Conservatives have helped bring accountability to Parliament, a couple of examples are the creation of committees to examine government failures in Afghanistan and our nation’s relationship with China. Although Parliament has adjourned for the summer, I remain hard at work. I look forward to travelling across East Central Alberta during the summer months to connect with you.

Volleyball teams reach nationals By Murray Green

Precision Volleyball Club completed its season with five out of the seven teams competing in national championships. “This was the largest volleyball nationals tournament to date with 1,042 teams across Canada between youth and seniors,” said club representative Melissa Dyck. The U13 team played up a level all season in the U14 category in preparation for next year. As a U13 team the group held its own against many older teams. “Our U14 team had a fun season of learning and met many competitive teams throughout the U14 division. We had a wonderful season of friendship, growth and love for the sport and some wins along the way,” said parent Shannon Bird. The U14 squad battled in the west nationals in Richmond, BC at the Olympic Oval against 120 teams. “They placed in the top 25 and received silver in their tier. This is a great group of girls, incredible athletes with passionate coaches. I can’t wait for next season,” added Melissa. The U15 girls team finished 32 out 152 teams at the nationals. The team played in Division 1 in the Alberta Volleyball Premier series finishing in 11th place before going into nationals. Coach Pat McFeely commended the athletes for their commitment and hard work throughout the season. “I would like to

thank the parents and assistant coach Madi Dyck for making this season a success.” The U16 girls was an extraordinary group of girls. “They all share a love for the sport and even more important they have demonstrated how to show up for each other as a team. We are excited to see where these girls will go on and off the court,” said Travis Rott. The girls placed 137 out of 149 at nationals. The U17 girls team nationals were held in Edmonton at the Expo Centre. This was a festival style tournament, which added to the experience of 782 teams from across Canada ranging from U15 to U18. “This was the first season our U17 girls had played together finishing in the top 50 across Canada with gold in their tier. The success of any team requires selflessness on the part of athletes and parents. Given the fact that this team was seeded 36th in the beginning of the season, yet finished 10th in Alberta and sub 50 in the country is remarkable,” said Melissa. Camrose Precision teams were the only small centre teams to finish in the top 12 in their age divisions in Alberta. The U15 boys were a great group—both players and parents. I did not get to spend too much time with them, but the feedback from other parents

was very positive too. All but one player can play this age group again next year. The bonding on and off the court was fun to witness. They improved, they had fun and they are ready to come back taller, stronger and more skilled next year,” said parent Jillian Wideman. The U17 boys were coached by Ryan Popowich, with the assistance of Jason Rasmuson. The boys had a successful season, despite being plagued by injuries. Their premier tournaments were played in a 17U/18U combined format, and they played in Division II placing fifth, 10th and seventh. They finally had their full line up of players together for their final U17 provincial tournament in Edmonton at the end of April. The team came together and played their best games of the season, resulting in an overall fifth place finish in the U17 division. “Congratulations to this talented, hard working, never give up, group of athletes on a great season with the Precision Volleyball Club,” said the coach. The Precision court should be up and running by the third week in June with a new court and posts. Open gym nights will be held in July for prospective players who would like to become Precision players. For details check www.precisionvolleyball.com.

Helpful Tips for Writing Classified Ads Which Get Results! Be Thorough

Sure you want your ad to stand out from the rest, but don’t skimp on the sort of information that sells. The item’s condition, size, age, brand name, and colour are some of the basics readers want to know. Without them, your ad may be overlooked.

Steer Clear of Abbreviations

Okay, so you want to include all the important basics. Don’t use strange abbreviations because our ads are designed to spell all the important details. Besides, you are not paying by the line, but by the word, so there is really no need to abbreviate.

Be Honest

Exaggerating your item’s finer points may bring in a lot of responses, but a buyer who’s misled won’t appreciate it and will take his business somewhere else.

State Your Price

The cost of an item is one of the most important concerns of want ad readers. Ads showing prices are ones which get results. Giving a price also serves to “weed out” those buyers not in your price range.

Be Accessible

Including a telephone number or address puts you in touch with potential buyers. Be sure to state the hours you can be reached: a caller who can’t get through the first time often won’t call again.

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.

Alberta Junior Hockey League prepares for next season By Murray Green The Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL) hosted the annual general meeting of the board of governors and coaches meeting on June 3 and 4. New initiatives for the 2022-23 season were finalized as the AJHL prepares for its 59th campaign beginning on September 16. All 16 AJHL teams will compete in a 60-game regular season schedule, including two regular season games each at the Showcase and 16 interlock games between north and south teams. The AJHL Showcase will be held from September 29 to

October 2 at the Eagle Builders Centre in Blackfalds. The league schedule will be announced on June 22. The league will implement a four-man referee system at all AJHL regular season and playoff games. The league has consistently increased the number of games utilizing the four-man system each season. The following rule changes will be in place, which impact a puck out of play and modify how coincidental penalties are served. When a minor penalty is assessed to one player of each team at the same stoppage in play (coincidentals),

these penalties will be served without substitution provided there are no other penalties in effect, resulting in both teams playing four-on-four for the duration of the minor penalties. All pucks deflected out of play in the attacking zone will stay inside the attacking zone for the face-off, regardless of who or what the puck was deflected off of. A pilot program for video review on goals at several AJHL arenas across the province will be launched. The project will be reviewed at the mid-point of the season for the purpose of expanding and adapting the program.

A new league-wide digital media strategy will launch in August 2022, which will enhance AJHL game broadcasts and statistics integration and include expanded multimedia components. The launch will also feature a new network of team and league websites for the AJHL. The AJHL management committee includes Noel Moriyama (Brooks Bandits), Kevin Pratt (Camrose Kodiaks) and Wayne Lauinger (Okotoks Oilers) as the south division representatives. The North Division will be represented by Dave Fitzgerald (Fort McMurray Oil Barons), Kevin Love

(Sherwood Park Crusaders) and Jeff Suggitt (Spruce Grove Saints). The Alberta Junior Hockey League is operating under the direction of chairman Greg Wood (Camrose Kodiaks)and commissioner Ryan Bartoshyk, as well as Charla Flett (executive director), Fran Gow (vice-president, hockey operations), Curtis Nichols (vice-president, officiating) and Dean Laschowski (video review manager). The AJHL board of governors will meet next at the semi-annual meeting on November 23.

I’m pretty excited! My loan was approved. I’m closing on a full tank of gas this weekend!

For the ladies who are still waiting for their prince on a white horse, don’t give up! With the recent rise in the price of fuel, it may happen any second now! I don’t want to be a millionaire. I just want enough money to be able to stare o into the distance while pumping my gas.

When gas was 99.9/litre, I used to drive around to clear my mind. Now, these thoughts are just living with me. If your electric car runs out of power on the highway, do you walk to a charging station to get a bucket of electricity?

My child’s Math problem says that Lisa bought ve loaves of bread that cost 25¢ each, and six pounds of beef that cost $1.25 per pound, and the only information I need is where does Lisa do her grocery shopping!!?

Sometimes you meet someone and you know from the very rst moment that you want to spend your whole life without them.

I hate it when you can’t gure something out on your iPad and the resident tech expert is unavailable. Because he’s ve. And he’s at Kindergarten.

I’m having a little nap on the sofa before taking myself up to bed for my main sleep. I call it a snors d’oeuvre.

I get very annoyed when people mix up there, their and they’re. From now on, I’m going two point it out weather they like it or not! Me: “How much for the angry lawn gnome?” Garage Sale Lady: “That’s my toddler.”

WANTED: Caretaker for my beach house. Also, a beach house. Also, money for a beach house.

Why does my wife always wait until I’m at the opposite end of the house before asking me to “Merm frner mernferr brnerfer!”? In Athens, no one wakes up before noon. Dawn is tough on Greece.

My eight-year-old disrupted my sleep again, so I texted my mom at 2:00 a.m. to ask when this stops.

Two donkeys were talking about their owners. The rst one said, “My owner is always harassing me, he beats me often.” The second donkey asked, “Why don’t you leave your owner?” The rst donkey replied, “I was thinking about it, but he has a very good looking daughter and whenever she does something mischievous, he says that he will get her married o to some donkey, and I am just waiting for that to happen.” I went for a job interview and the manager said, “We’re looking for someone who is responsible.” “Well, I’m your man,” I replied. “At my last job, whenever anything went wrong, they said I was responsible.”

I got my wife to help me put some posts in the ground for our new fence. I gave her the hammer and I said, “When I nod my head, you hit it.” I don’t remember much after that. An old cowboy walks into a barbershop for a shave and a haircut. He tells the barber he can’t get all his whiskers off because his cheeks are wrinkled from age. The barber gets a little wooden ball from a cup on the shelf and tells the cowboy to put it inside his cheek to spread out the skin. When he’s finished, the old cowboy tells the barber that was the cleanest shave he’s had in years, but he wanted to know what would have happened if he had accidentally swallowed that little ball. The barber replied, “Just bring it back in a couple of days like everyone else does!”
