A focus on mental health is the intent for two productions which will be presented for back-to-back evening performances this weekend at the Bailey Theatre. Infinite Imagination Theatre is hoping to draw a full house for their 6:30 p.m. shows on Friday, September 23 and Saturday, September 24. The first show is titled Red and features father-son team Logan and Mike Hicks (above). The second show each evening features another local actor, Trevor McTavish, in Every Brilliant Thing (left). Proceeds, including the silent auction and charcuterie will be directed to Unit 3, the mental health and addictions unit at St. Mary’s Hospital and Camrose and Area Men’s Shed.

Food drive held at local AMA location to assist Albertans By Murray Green

The Camrose branch of the Alberta Motor Association (AMA) will hold a food drive from September 16 to 30. Food can be dropped off at the local AMA location. Alberta food banks are experiencing record demand, with 116,396 visitors every month—and 38 per cent of them are children (the national average is 33 per cent). To put that last part in perspective, imagine both the Saddledome and Rogers Place filled to capacity with children, then another 6,800 children waiting outside to get in. Nobody should have to choose between putting

food on the table or keeping a roof over their family’s head. Alberta’s food banks urgently need people’s help right now. AMA is partnering with Food Banks Alberta to collect nonperishable donations for vulnerable children and their families across the province. These community food drives will take place Sept. 16 to 30, with donations supporting local food banks. Monthly food bank visitors in Alberta have increased by 30 per cent since 2019—the second highest spike in the country. Since the inception of Fill Our Fleet, AMA has rallied with its members to

raise $919,995 and 273,158 pounds of food for community food banks. Everything donated goes directly to the local food bank. The ripple effects of food insecurity touch every community, so that’s how we have to respond: as a community. Food Banks Alberta has seen a 160 per cent increase in member food banks accessing their warehouse for additional food and resources in the past six months. All 107 FBA member food banks have reported alarming increases in demand.

We have a ritual for that When I was in my thirties, and surer of much more than I am now, I was somewhat contemptuous of ceremonies and rituals. Spontaneity was my thing. Seemed to me that sometimes ceremonies and rituals squeezed the life out of what could have been more meaningful or more fun. Ceremonies often felt like just going through the motions. That seemed phony to me. In the past few weeks, since the death of Queen Elizabeth II, we’ve all had the opportunity to watch rituals and ceremonies in action. Miles-long lineups of people waited quietly to pay their respects by walking past the Queen’s coffin lying in state at Westminster. Changing of the guard every 20 minutes, with precision marching and maneuvering of spears. I’m writing this before the Queen’s funeral, so can’t comment on all the ceremony of that event. Pomp and circumstance. *** Watching King Charles III and his three siblings, along with younger members of the royal family, marching behind the Queen’s coffin on its way to Westminster, I thought what a brutal experience that must have been. For Princes William and Harry, they would have been remembering their walk, at ages 15 and 12, to the funeral of their mother, Princess Diana, with thousands of onlookers on the streets, and millions of people watching on television. I also watched video clips of King Charles being irritated by a pen that didn’t work. I flashed back to when my mother died. Like the queen, my mom was in her nineties when she died. Her death was not unexpected and not a tragedy. But it was a huge loss. I still feel the gap nine years later. At the time of her death, would I have wanted to have many ceremonial functions to attend or even lead? Would I have wanted to be required to dress up in uncomfortable uniforms? Would I have wanted to be observed by thousands of people? Would I have wanted video cameras watching and recording my every move? Would I have wanted TV comics to mimic me in front of millions of viewers? Not for the first time, I’m grateful not to be a celebrity. *** So. Back to pomp and circumstance. Back to rituals and ceremonies. They do help us cope with difficult circumstances. They tell us what to do when we’re too distressed to think. I read a piece that made me laugh–sort of. Here’s the quote: “Few positions require the composure, stamina, and decorum expected of the British military guards who have served as the Queen’s Royal Guard during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II… “Protocols that all Royal Guards must follow include avoiding smiling and laughing, remaining nonreactive to people surrounding them unless an emergency requires shouting a command or pointing their rifles in warning, forgoing bathroom breaks, and learning how to faint properly. “How does one faint properly, while guarding the British sovereign?… Soldiers must learn how to ‘faint to attention,’ which is why photographs of lineups in which one of the guards has passed out usually show the unfortunate person lying face down on the ground with their arms at their sides. It’s expected that if soldiers feel themselves going down, they pitch forward directly onto their front while still holding their rifle at attention. According to Major Dai Bevan of the Welsh Guards, ‘It will probably involve a broken nose and a whole lot of missing teeth.’” Now I’m not only glad not to be a celebrity, but glad not to have to learn how to faint properly! *** I’d love to hear from you. If you have comments about this column or suggestions for future topics, send an email to I’ll happily reply within one business day.

Salute to volunteers Bravo to Bonnie Hutchinson for her column September 6, which put Dr. Hinshaw’s salary and bonus into context. Dr. Hinshaw has helped lead our province through the deadliest pandemic in more than a hundred years. She has done so with knowledge, skill, calm and empathy despite the enormous pressure, personal attacks and threats to which she has been subject. I have no objection to anyone, including hedge fund managers and professional athletes, earning (legally) all they can with little discernible public benefit, as long as they pay their fair share of taxes. We are very fortunate to have Dr. Hinshaw as our chief medical officer of health. Alan Fielding, Camrose Canine support I am humbled to be writing this to you all.

About 10 months ago I had a vision to bring the 2022 Canadian Police Canine Championships to Camrose. After receiving formal approval, the work began to ensure this event was a five-star experience for everyone involved. You all provided a piece to the overall puzzle and each had imperative roles to play in bringing this vision to a reality. After a week of competition, guest speakers, and community engagement–I can objectively say that the event was nothing short of a resounding success. From the competitors who attend from across the country to the child who attended public day to watch the police dogs–everyone had nothing but accolades for the event as a whole. This event has provided lasting memories for the attendees, the thousands of people who attended the public day and for the City of Camrose. Words can-


not express the amount of gratitude I personally have towards all of you. Your contributions to this event have touched so many different people on so many levels. The legacy of this national event in Camrose will last for years to come and many bonds were created that will continue to grow, that will directly and positively impact the K9 community and everyone who was involved. Words cannot do justice for the thanks that myself, competitors, judges, quarries, volunteers, the Camrose Police Service and the City of Camrose have for all of you. Please share this with anyone within your organization that had a hand in making this event an incredible success. Matt Rolfe, Camrose

Camrose athletics garnered gold medals at the Canada 55 Plus Games held in Kamloops on August 23 to 26. Rhonda and Brian Henke from Ponoka, Carter Calliou, Rosella and Frank Snopek from Camrose were members of this five member team that represented Alberta. They were entered in the 65 plus pins over average five pin bowling. They won gold medals with a score of plus 281 after six games. They earned the opportunity to advance to the Canada 55 Plus Games by winning the gold medals in the Alberta 55 Plus provincial Winter Games held in Edmonton last April. Floor shuffleboard was another activity in the Canada Games, with Dianne and Dennis Hartman of Camrose winning the bronze medal in 70 plus age category. Kathleen Tennant from Bawlf and Roger Olson from Daysland won the bronze medal in the 55 plus age category. Three Camrose golfers were winners: Paula Cramer with a bronze, Linda Slater with a silver and Brenda Heyink a gold in the low gross category.

The Canada 55 Plus Games had approximately 2,900 participants from 11 provincial/territorial organizations. The monetary value of these Games to the host city was reported to be approximately $4 million. Events hosted were badminton, bowling five pin, carpet bowling, contract bridge, cribbage, cycling, darts, dragon boat racing, duplicate bridge, floor shuffleboard, golf, horseshoes, ice curling, ice hockey (men’s and women’s), lawn bowling, biking, pickleball, pool-eight ball, scrabble, mixed slo-pitch, soccer, swimming, tennis, track and field. Alberta and Canada are committed to invest in the wellness of seniors through active living by hosting of the Alberta 55 Plus Games (Winter and Summer) and the Canada 55 Plus Games. “The next Alberta 55 Plus Summer Games are to be held in August 2023 in Brooks and the host city for the 2024 Canada 55 Plus Games is Trois Rivieres, Quebec. The Alberta Winter Games venue has not been determined yet,” said Rosella Snopek, Zone 4 activity director.

Youth are encouraged to learn about nature and the environment around them at the Magpie Nature camp led by the Battle River Watershed Alliance.

What could be better for a child to learn than to be out in nature, getting hands on experiences with nature, close-up encounters and lessons from a group of young, enthusiastic facilitators during the Battle River Watershed Alliance (BRWA) annual Magpie Nature Camp. The Camp was once again held at the Pleasure Island Trout Pond and included two separate sessions, one from August 15 to 19 and one from August 22 to 26. The two week camp hosted 27 participants ranging in ages from seven to 13 years of age, exploring and learning from BRWA facilitators Watershed Programs manager Sarah Skinner and Education lead Kandra Forbes. The camp schedule kept the participants on their toes with a variety of activities and some pretty special guest speakers. On Monday, participants were introduced to the site and were given the opportunity to explore the paths and the island. On Tuesday, Cory (Olson) from the Alberta Community Bat Program came to visit and teach the participants about bats with the help of his ambassador bat, a Hoary bat named Batsby. “The participants got to observe Batsby and learn about some of the myths surrounding bats,” explained Forbes. Wednesday, campers, learned all about plants. University of Alberta Augustana research assistant, Beatriz (Moreira) and associate professor of biology, Anne (McIntosh) attended to help the participants learn more about plants as well as show

them how to make a plant press. “Cattail cordage (ropes/ twin) was a popular activity as well, with one participant creating one almost 15 ft long,” noted Skinner. Thursday campers learned about a watershed and how the Battle River is part of a larger system. In the afternoon they went pond dipping in the trout pond for critters. “There was much love for the little minnows and snails found,” said Skinner. During the second week, the group was joined by Alberta Lake Management Society’s Caleb (Sinn) who taught the participants about different aspects of water chemistry, as well as identifying some of the weeds in the water. On Friday of the second week, the camp wrapped up with hands on lessons on how to be good stewards of the land with the planting of willows along the wetland and then pulling an invasive weed, common tansy. “Between the two weeks, we filled seven garbage bags before the plants went to seed,” said Forbes. In the afternoon, members of the Camrose and District Fish and Game Association (stewards of Pleasure Island Trout Pond) came out and taught the participants how to fish. A peaceful ending to a week (in total) of learning the value of the natural world. For more information on the Battle River Watershed Alliance, visit the website at www.battleriverwatershed. ca.

Sod turns at Mirror Lake Dental site By Murray Green

Mirror Lake Dental, soon to be at 5403-48 Avenue, had a sod-turning ceremony on September 16 to mark the launch of construction of a new building. “The support received from Camrose and surrounding area is the foundation for the creation of Mirror Lake Dental. Dr. Dinh and his wife moved here in 2014 and are grateful to be raising a young family in such a wonderful community,” said Jolene Paulson of Align Builders. The dentists and team at Mirror Lake Dental are all local to the area. They are excited to work alongside and showcase the talent from all the local builders, trades and businesses involved in this project.

“It is a two-story commercial building with beautiful views of Mirror Lake. Mirror Lake Dental will occupy the second floor and three tenant/lease spaces will make up the ground floor,” she said. “Camrose is full of local talent in the construction industry and Align Builders is thrilled to put together such a high-quality team.” A local architect group is part of the team to assist in design and accreditation. Local sub-contractors and suppliers will play an important part in the construction process and the overall success of this project. This will be a significant project for a very gifted team.

NEW LOCATION Murray Green, Camrose Booster Sod was turned on the new Mirror Lake Dental location on 48th Avenue on September 16. On hand were, from left to right, Align Builders architect technician Sophia Hayes, her niece Emerson Storbakken, Align Builders construction manager Mike Forre and Dr. Chris Dinh with daughter Annie.

OLMP wins volleyball Earle Berry classic By Murray Green

The Our Lady of Mount Pleasant (OLMP) Royals boys volleyball team captured the Earle Berry Tournament hosted by the Augustana Vikings on September 9 and 10. OLMP edged the crosstown rivals École Camrose Composite High School (ÉCCHS) in the opening match and then the two squads won several matches to meet again in the final championship that the Royals won. “Last year, we had a pretty strong year, but we had a young team. This year everyone is more experienced and we want to finish our last year of high school strong,” said OLMP Grade 12 student Grayson Jarrett. The team won zones last year and placed sixth at provincials. “I think we can medal, get to the final this year and take it home. Last year, ÉCCHS had a strong team and beat us a few times. We wanted to send a message early that we can beat the other Camrose high school,” said Jarrett. OLMP competes in the 2A division, while ÉCCHS is a 3A school. “We have all grown a little bit since last year, have gotten stronger and we are looking like a solid team so far,” he added. Jarrett plays either outside hitter or right side, depending on the strategy in that game. “On my club team, when the score was close, I would get a lot of sets towards me and the same is here as well. I like the pressure and to be in a position to put games away. I like it on my shoulders a bit, especially when the other team is trying to take it away from us late in the game,” Jarrett explained.

“We need to get everyone on the court talking. If we lost a point, you want to cheer everyone on, support each other and stay up,” he said, as one of the leaders on the team. “We have a young core of players coming up as well and they look at what we are doing on the floor and look up to us as well,” Jarrett explained. “We just want to set an example. We have five Grade 12 players now.” Jarrett played club volleyball this summer and on Team Alberta to gain more valuable experience for this season. “I went to Edmonton to play for NAVC and we ended up winning Division 1 nationals. It was a special moment for both me and my team. In the past, I played for Team Alberta U16 team and then was asked to play club volleyball. I had a really good year and then this summer, I played on Team Alberta U17 and we ended up winning the Canada Cup against Manitoba in the final in three. That was in July in Calgary. It is year-round volleyball for me. I don’t get much of a break,” Jarrett said. Next year, he wants to make the jump to college or university volleyball. “I’m talking to quite a few schools. I’m looking at going to Ontario to play because they are a little more accepting of smaller outsides, because some only like six-foot one-and-a-half. So for the university side, that is a little undersized,” reflected Jarrett. “In the Canada West division, they like to take guys six-foot-five and up. If I went to Ontario, I would have a better shot at receiving scholarship money,” he said. “Our team is looking to making zones first in late November against some challenging teams. If we win that, we will be headed to provincials on November 27 in Oilfield School out by Calgary.” OLMP has won the last six zone tournaments in volleyball. “This year, we have a new team, CACHS from the Red Deer area, who have a strong volleyball program and have been dominating the 1A division. They have won provincials almost every year, now they are moving up. We have to beat them to make it to provincials.”

Dale Wayne Harder

Dorothy & Garry Gibson’s

Celebration of Life Ceremony SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2022

October 2, 1970 ~ August 7, 2022 Dale Wayne Harder was born on October 2, 1970. He passed away on August 7, 2022 at the age of 51. Dale went to Chester Ronning Shcool just down the street for Grades 1 to 6, then went off to Charlie Killam for Junior High and Camrose Composite for High School. He apprenticed for BPressure Welding at NAIT. Being the oldest of three boys, Dale often led the way to try new adventures. Many science experiments were held in the backyard with cousin Warran as the brains behind the blow-up, crash-up, smash-up derbies. Funny, all the neighbours moved away – only one original is left. Perhaps their boys were in on the shenanigans, too. Dale had many loves – his dogs Sasha, Bozzley and Runa. He loved all sports, skiing, quadding, ball, golf, hockey and building model airplanes. He loved to camp and would fish from dawn till dusk. He was a good and loyal friend. Dale knew he was and is loved. In July of this year, Dale sold his home in Beaumont to move to Calgary, looking forward to the future with joy. Dale is survived by his best friend and companion Annie and her children Calvin, Daniel and Christy; his parents John and Signe; brother Dean, Diana and Bo; along with wonderful aunts, uncles and cousins. Dale was predeceased by younger brother Grant; nephew Cole; Grandma Olga Saugen and Grandma Agatha Harder. A funeral service was held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 10, 2022 at Messiah Lutheran Church with Rev. Bev Swanson officiating. Memorial donations may be given to: Educational Fund for Annie’s children by e-transfer to or by cheque to Signe Harder or any ATB; or the charity of one’s choice.

Maxine Mabel Badry

June 11, 1932 ~ September 11, 2022 Maxine Mabel Badry (Brandt), born to Bert and Audrey Brandt on June 11, 1932, died peacefully on September 11, 2022. Maxine was the eldest of three and grew up in Camrose. It was there she met the love of her life, Victor Badry, whom she married on June 22, 1953. In 1959, they moved to Heisler area, and in 1965, they moved onto the Badry farm. This is where they raised their five children Leanne, Shara-Lynn, Laurel, Shawn and Lee. Maxine loved gardening, her flowers and her yard. She was that farm wife who did so much for family, was involved in the farming, cleaning and delivering of eggs when they had chickens, and driving the combine during harvest. She and Victor enjoyed camping and fishing well into their retirement years. Maxine loved crafts, and had a passion for knitting and ceramics, and spending time out at her seasonal trailer site. Active in her community, she was a 60-year member of the church CWL, was involved with the Seniors’ Club, and was the Heisler correspondent for The Community Press for many years. What brought Maxine the most joy was spending time with her family. She delighted in family gatherings and often remarked about how proud she was of her entire family. After Victor’s passing in April 2014, Maxine remained in Heisler until October 2021, when she moved to Providence Place in Daysland. There she was able to socialize more and participate in many activities. At a healthy 90 years of age, Maxine spent this past summer camping at her seasonal site, determined to take part in the things that brought her the most joy! Maxine will be lovingly missed by her children Leanne (Greg) Baumle, Shara-Lynn (Jerry) Weller, Shawn (Janice) Badry, and Lee (Lorraine) Badry; seventeen grandchildren; twenty-nine greatgrandchildren; siblings Marlene (Stan) McHarg and Gerald (Susan) Brandt; as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. She was predeceased by her husband Victor; daughter Laurel Fowler; and her parents Bert and Audrey Brandt. A Funeral Mass was held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, September 15, 2022 from St. Martin Roman Catholic Church, 313 Manning Avenue, Heisler, with Father Danial DSouza as celebrant. If family and friends so desire, memorial contributions in Maxine’s memory may be made to St. Martin Roman Catholic Cemetery or to Providence Place, Daysland. To send condolences, please visit

The automotive section of

Bishop’s 1977 Pontiac is the grand prize By Murray Green

Raymond Bishop owns a 1977 Pontiac Grand Prix SJ. “I found this car in Ryley. I went to check on a job and found this car sitting on Main Street. I talked to the guy and bought it. He was interested in selling it, so I purchased it,” said Raymond. The Grand Prix is a line of automobiles produced by the Pontiac Division of General Motors from 1962 until 2002 for coupes. “I was attracted to the great shape of the car and the look of it. These are beautiful cars,” he added. First introduced as part of Pontiac’s full-size car offering for the 1962 model year, the model varied repeatedly in size, luxury, and performance during its production. The car has a 400 big block engine with a four barrel carburetor. “It is fully loaded with everything electrical on it. The car is as high tech as you can get back in 1977,” he laughed. Among the changes were positioning in the personal luxury car market segment and mid-size car offering from the second generation to the fifth generation for the sedan and from the second generation to the sixth generation from the coupe. “When I got the car, I had to polish it. I discovered it had a grey pinstripe,

which didn’t match the car so I changed it to red. I wasn’t going to do a whole lot to it. I want to take it to car shows. Every car is for sale, but I want to keep it for awhile. I want to keep, it original, but it does need a paint job. It


A complete reworking of the front header and bumper highlighted the 1977 Grand Prix, which was the final year for the 1973-vintage body shell that was set to be replaced by a downsized GP for 1978. The parking lamps were now positioned between the quad headlamps (same setup as a 1967 or 1968 Oldsmobile Cutlass), and the previous year’s waterfall grille was replaced by a narrower one that extended into the lower portion of the bumper. Behind the bumper were new reinforcements (mounting panels) made from aluminum rather than steel to reduce weight. In back the taillights were simplified to eliminate the weighty pot metal bezels that created the horizontal stripe effect in 1976. The same three models (J, LJ and SJ) were carried over with engine revisions. The original thinking on the 301 CID engine was that the weight savings from using a significantly lighter engine would cancel out the horsepower loss from the smaller displacement. This turned out to be a major miscalculation and 301 equipped cars became much less desirable among Grand Prix enthusiasts and collectors. The 301 also had a knocking (pre-ignition) problem that was later determined to be caused by the shape of the combustion chamber. Each of those engines were Pontiac-built units as in previous years.

has had one re-paint on it, but it was painted in a garage and it needs some improvement,” said Raymond. The Grand Prix was the most expensive coupe Pontiac offered until the 1970s, when the Bonneville Brougham and the Firebird Trans Am became more exclusive. “Everything on the car is as it came from the factory. In fact, it still has the factory spare tire in the trunk and in beautiful shape like it was never driven,” said Raymond. “I really like the body style of these Pontiacs. The Buicks and Pontiacs in the back are the same, but the body style is totally different. I like the shape of the Pontiac better in this model.” The Grand Prix, which is French for grand prize, returned to a full-size car from the sixth generation to the seventh generation for the sedan, positioned below the larger Bonneville in Pontiac’s model lineup. Features such as a cushioned steering wheel and

custom pedal trim plates became optional on Model J, but remained standard on LJ and SJ, both of which also continued to include Strato bucket seats as standard equipment. Both the LJ and SJ

models came standard with a 180 horsepower 400 cubic inch V8 that was optional on the Model J. The 200 hp 455 engine was optional on all models.

Buffaloes garner second victory By Murray Green

The Camrose Buffaloes bantam team defeated the Strathcona Wolverines 28-0 for its second straight victory on September 10. “It was a defensive battle in the first half with only eight points scored, all for the Buffaloes and all scored by Howells Boateng. Points included a punt single, a touchdown and the convert,” explained coach Brad Berger. “The second half opened up for the Buffaloes with a toss reverse touchdown to Hunter Schweitz followed by two more touchdowns by Boateng. The offensive and defensive lines for the Buffaloes had their hands full against a large opponent but came out on top. The defense coached by Brad Mullins pitched a perfect game,” added coach Berger. “Hats off to the entire team for a huge win. The Buffaloes travel to St. Albert for a Saturday September 24, game at 11 a.m. on Larry Olexiuk Field against the Fury. Camrose hosts the Fort McMurray Ravens on Sunday, October 16 at noon on Harry Andreassen Field in Kin Park. Peewee The Camrose Buffaloes peewee team also blanked the Strathcona Wolverines, 45-0 on September 10. “The coaching staff after Saturday’s game, were blown away with improvement that the team has made from two weeks ago. There were so many great plays made by everyone. I personally as the head coach have never seen a group come together so quickly and gel so well as a team,” said coach Troy Christie.

Question: What should I do if I feel I was treated unfairly or poorly by the Police? Answer: Police officers are expected to remain unbiased and professional at all times. However, police officers are human as well and are not infallible. Should you have an encounter where a police officer’s behaviour is unacceptable, there is a process to deal with this. Often, a citizen concern is received by the Police Service and is dealt with informally through the officer’s supervisor and documented. Should a citizen lodge a formal complaint, it must be done in writing and provided to the Chief of Police, or the Public Complaints Director of the Police Commission. These formal complaints are legislated to be investigated by the Police Act. Have a question for the Chief? Email them to The Camrose Booster at | 4709 36 St, Camrose

Lovely recognizes volunteers at Heritage Railway Station By Murray Green

The Camrose Heritage Railway Station CNR depot has been part of the community since 1911 and the railway station has always been a hub of activity. For years, it was the gateway to the community, prior to all weather highways and modern communication systems.

It remains a part of Camrose and district’s heritage and culture as a historic site and community centre operated by dedicated volunteers, and supported by generous individuals and organizations. On September 1, these long time dedicated volunteers were recognized by MLA Jackie Lovely at an

afternoon tea at the railway station. “We are especially proud of some of our oldest and longest serving volunteers,” said Glenys Smith, Society director. “Dorothy Lysons (of Camrose) is one of those fine people; she represents well those who have helped make the Camrose Heritage Railway Sta-

tion and Park something that we can all be proud of.” Lysons, along with over 30 others, were recognized for their faithful community service by MLA Lovely with the presentation of a special certificate, while Canadian Northern Society president Karen Smith expressed her heartfelt thanks as well. “Our vision has always been to preserve history here and build community. Thanks to so many of you, the support of the province, the city, and several organizations and foundations, we have developed a place that the community can gather to remember our rich heritage, but also to contribute and give back to Camrose

and area,” said Karen. The Canadian Northern Society is the registered charity that operates the Camrose Heritage Railway Station and in addition to its volunteers from the city, it recognized those on its board of directors, and the volunteers from Meeting Creek, Donalda and Big Valley, where the Society is very active in preserving an entire collection of historic railway stations, unique in western Canada. “We appreciated MLA Lovely taking the time from her busy schedule to join us to provide the recognition that is so deserved for our volunteers,” said Smith.

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.

Rural crime has a downward trend By Murray Green

Camrose RCMP Detachment updated the County during its quarterly report on September 13. Cpl. Kevin Krebs of the Wetaskiwin/Camrose Detachments of the RCMP revealed that all crimes are down, except for the theft of motor vehicles. Cpl. Krebs indicated that Inspector Durance has transferred to K Division and has left his position, so S/Sgt. Angela Gilchrist is the acting in-charge leader in Wetaskiwin. Two vacancies need to be filled in Wetaskiwin with one member coming from Ft. McMurray. A Camrose position was filled by Const. Cory Shultz. Camrose is fully staffed because of two to six month rotations from the Wetaskiwin office. “Persons crime is down 10 per cent, property crime down 23 per cent, break and enters are down 32 per cent, theft under $5,000 is down 44 per cent. Only theft of motor vehicles up 33 per cent,” said Cpl. Krebs. He said that they have completed 500 rural patrols within Wetaskiwin and Camrose County; 15 special patrols (ATV/Snowmobile/ Boat); 50 traffic enforcement initiatives in the last quarter. In property crime they have performed 300 curfew checks, 400 hot spot checks, 10 specialized operations and a Business Watch International (BWI) roll-out. Cpl. Krebs reported on files of interest. On July 31, a break and enter occurred at the Bawlf Fire Department and post office with $16,000 worth of equipment stolen including jaws of life tool. About $6,000 worth of items were stolen from Canada Post. These files are linked with several other break and enters in Forestburg, Sedgwick and other surrounding areas. All investigations on-going. On July 20, a double fatal collision at Twp 472 and Highway 21 when a semi truck rear ended a passenger truck that was turning. Impact caused the passenger truck to be pushed into oncoming traffic. Oncoming vehicle driver severely injured and taken to hospital via STARS. Investigation is on going. On June 14, a fatal collision at Highway 21 and Highway 13 just east of the traffic circle had a vehicle run into garbage truck and it appears the deceased

Buffaloes garner second victory Continued from page 22 “The offense has started to click and their quick timing and fast movement out of the backfield, set the pace with a 60-yard touchdown within the first two minutes and kept rolling on from there. The defense was kept busy and did a phenomenal job. Their communication with each other and quick movements to the ball held the wolverines to a zero-point game. They were also able to add two touchdowns to the score. It was a great team effort, we were impressed by everyone’s effort and passion and they were well deserving of the win,” added coach Christie. On Sunday, September 25 at 1 p.m. on Emerald Hills Turf Field they face the Sherwood Park Northstars. The club heads to St. Albert for a game on Sunday, October 2 at 1:30 p.m. on Larry Olexiuk Field to play the Fury. Atom Atom Navy Buffaloes won 4-1 in the first game of the season against Spruce Grove, September 10.

“Our Navy roster definitely brought their A-game to the first game of the season. Starting our defensive line came out with great pressure and worked particularly well together as a team holding the opposing line. The Buffaloes took home the win 4-1 with awesome plays from offence,” said coach Pier Juneau. “Our Red atoms showed great heart and played well. Our offence had wellexecuted starting plays and were able to create some gains in yards. Defensively the lines brought pressure to the opposing team with some great stops and learned a lot competitiveness. They played hard right until the end with a close loss of 4-2,” explained coach Juneau. On Sunday, September 25 at 12:30 p.m. on Field #2 at Beaumont Composite High School it is the Beaumont Bears against the Navy Buffaloes.

Welcome to Alberta! Winter is at 6 a.m., Spring starts at 10 a.m., Summer is at 2 p.m., and Fall starts around 4:30ish. Dress accordingly. Bri-ish people don’t pronounce the “T” because they drank it all. I don’t know whose dog needs to hear this, but just because it crinkles doesn’t mean it’s your snack. I don’t know why we stopped doing Show and Tell after Kindergarten. All my stuff is so much cooler now. The fact that there’s a highway to Hell and a stairway to Heaven says a lot about anticipated traffic numbers. I always carry my wife’s picture with me in my wallet. It helps remind me why there’s no money in there. Raising kids is like being constantly surrounded by a tiny sales team. They’re always trying to persuade you into doing or buying something. And they assume everything you say is just an opening offer. I was going to start dieting, but Thanksgiving is coming up, then Halloween candy and then Christmas. Before you know it, it’s barbecue season again and I’m not about to turn down a cheeseburger!

My wife: “Have the kids been acting weird today?” Me: “I don’t think it’s an act.” Teacher: “Your son said you threatened to beat him?” Me: “At Checkers!” Teacher: “And forced him to sleep outside?” Me: “We were camping!” Teacher: “And made up his peanut allergy so he couldn’t share your Snickers bar?” Me: “Yeah … that one I did …” The Domestication of Dogs Wolf: “I’m going to eat your babies!” Human: “But what if, instead of that, I offered you a soft pillow and some Beggin’ Strips?” Wolf: “I’m listening … tell me more.” An old man wants a job, but the boss won’t hire him until he passes a little math test. “Here is your first question,” the boss says. “Without using numbers, represent the number nine.” “Without numbers?” the old man asks. “That’s easy.” And he proceeds to draw three trees. “What is this?” asks the boss. “You don’t have a brain? Tree plus tree plus tree makes nine,” says the old man. “Fair enough,” says the boss. “Here is your second question. Use the same rules, but this time the number is 99.” The old man stares into space for a while, then picks up the picture that he has just drawn and makes a smudge on each tree, and hands it back. The boss scratches his head and says, “How on earth does that represent 99?” “Each of the trees is dirty now. So it’s dirty tree plus dirty tree plus dirty tree. It’s 99.” “Okay, last question,” says the boss. “Again, the same rules, but represent the number 100.” The old man stares into space again. Then he picks up the picture, makes a little mark at the base of each tree, and hands it back. The boss looks at the picture. “You must be nuts if you think that represents a hundred!” The old man leans forward and points to the marks at the base of each tree and whispers, “A little dog came along and did his business by each tree. So now you got dirty tree and a turd, plus dirty tree and a turd, plus dirty tree and a turd, which makes 100.”
