Silent Santa

Last year, the Kinettes Club of Camrose helped approximately 450 local children have an age appropriate gift to celebrate Christmas. Collaborating with Neighbor Aid screeners to identify qualifying recipients who need temporary assistance due to an unforeseen situation, the Kinettes know that there will be increased demand this year. This Saturday, November 26, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. near Camrose Registry, the annual Silent Santa Toy Drive will take place. Camrose Fire Department, Camrose Kodiaks and members of Camrose service groups will provide volunteer assistance to Camrose Kinette Club members. After experiencing such high demand last year, the Kinettes distributed their complete inventory of donated items. This means they are starting from scratch as they seek donations to meet this year’s extraordinary demand. If you are able to donate to a child or youth up to 17 years old, know in advance that you will be making a difference in the life of someone you may never meet. Historically, fewest gifts are received for young males and females from ages 10 through 17. Food bank donations will also be accepted.

Dr. Jonathan Mohr, a local conductor and academic, received the Choir Alberta’s prestigious Richard S. Eaton Award. Mohr has posthumously received Choir Alberta’s award that is presented annually in recognition of service to choral music in the province. Dr. Mohr directed the choir at Camrose Lutheran College (now, the Univer-

sity of Alberta Augustana Faculty) between 1978 and 1988. A generation of choristers from those years fondly remember the sense of musicality and camaraderie he fostered. With an analytical mind well suited to patternseeking within complex structures, Jonathan went on to earn a PhD in computing science and became a rigorous and respected teacher within this disci-

Jonathan played an integral role in galvanizing Choir Alberta (then known as the Alberta Choral Federation) and was involved in the founding board of the Association of Canadian Choral Conductors (ACCC, now Choral Canada). The award was presented by Choir Alberta’s executive director, Brendan Lord, to Jonathan’s wife, Robyn Simpson Mohr, at the Music Conference Awards concert in Edmonton, October 22. The Choir Alberta Awards of Distinction are presented annually to individuals from across the province who have made significant contributions to choral music and group singing. Choir Alberta recognizes choir as a wide and varied art form and encourages everyone to sing and to be inspired by the choir experience. The organization is dedicated to raising the profile, elevating the quality, and highlighting the benefits of choir while supporting and educating choral practitioners and audiences.

Another Black Friday (not for shopping) A 96-year old reader remembers standing with Jack Ferris, owner of Ferris Motors, when my dad, Bill Fowler, walked over and handed Jack the first issue of The Camrose Booster. After Dad left, Jack said, “A paper that you give away? There’s a business that won’t last.” Jack was wrong. The first issue of The Camrose Booster was delivered on November 25, 1952. As of this issue, it’s lasted 70 years and three days. This week’s Black Friday specials remind me of a Black Friday that shaped The Camrose Booster. *** When my dad heard the idea of a weekly paper delivered free to all households, it was radical. He talked to local businesses, selling the idea that if they bought ads in the paper, their message would go to every household. Several businesses pledged to buy ads for the first four weeks. Our family of two adults and four children didn’t have extra money. The new business would have start-up expenses for supplies and equipment before the first issue came out. It would be weeks before the first income arrived. Dad went to banks to get financing. He showed them the advertiser commitments and his cash flow predictions. Banks weren’t impressed. They wanted more security. Eventually one bank agreed to provide a line of credit based on a percentage of receivables, the amount of money that advertisers owed the Booster at any time. For the first few years, the Booster generated enough income to cover expenses, but the money arrived after expenses had to be paid. That line of credit was the Booster’s lifeline to keep operating. *** Before The Booster began, my parents had ended a business partnership. That ending created a large tax bill. All their money was plowed into the fledgling business. At any moment, receivables might be more than expenses, but cash was not in hand. My parents did not have enough cash to pay the tax bill. Dad went to Edmonton to explain the situation with a federal tax official. As Dad told the story, the tax person leaned back in his chair and said, “Frankly, Mr. Fowler, I couldn’t care less.” Dad left post-dated cheques to cover the tax bill, but left feeling uneasy. A few weeks later on a Friday, Dad went on his regular calls, selling ads to local businesses. At the first store, the business owner asked Dad about a letter the business had received from the federal tax department. The letter stated that if the business owed money to the Camrose Booster, they should not pay the Booster, but instead should send the money to the tax department. Dad was stunned. In his next few calls, he learned that all The Booster’s advertisers had received the same letter from the tax department. That was our family’s Black Friday. The tax letters meant the Booster had no receivables and therefore no line of credit. As Mom said, “We were done.” *** A few hours later, Dad got a phone call from a business owner asking him to come down to the store. When Dad arrived, a cluster of business owners and managers–all Booster advertisers–were there. “We’re going to the bank.” In the bank manager’s office, they said something like, “We understand Bill has a problem with the tax department. We would like you to loan him the money to pay the tax bill. Just tell us how many signatures you need to cover the loan and we’ll sign.” *** I did not hear this story until I was an adult. My stoic mom said that when Dad came home and told her what happened, it was the first time he’d ever seen her cry. The name, The Camrose Booster, reflects its purpose–to boost local businesses and boost the community. After Black Friday, my parents were even more passionate community boosters. Seventy years later, The Camrose Booster is still proud to be the home town paper. For more on the 70 year history of The Camrose Booster, see pages 18 and 19. *** 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.

We have survived another time change, and I, for one, am very happy to be back on standard time. The earlier light in the morning, and the more balanced daylight hours between morning and evening just feels better. While I don’t like the fall and spring time change, I voted to keep it because I don’t want year round daylight time. At our latitude, it is just silly. In the summer it is light all the time anyway, and in

the winter it is nice to have a balance, which is why the time zones are where they are in the first place. In the referendum on the time change, I wish there had been two questions: First: Do you want to keep changing the clocks in spring and fall? Yes or No. Second: If you indicated no on Question One, would you prefer Standard Time or Daylight time? With only one choice, change or daylight time, those of us who want standard time could only vote to keep the change.

Saskatchewan has standard time year-round, and it doesn’t matter what BC decides to do. If they choose daylight time, they would just be the same time as we are. Our westernmost residents are already on de facto daylight time as Alberta’s border extends into the Pacific Time Zone. Will our government give us a chance to fully express our opinion on this matter, including staying on standard time? Stephen Kristenson, Camrose

Viking Cup book assists university hockey team

By Murray Green

Author LeRoy Johnson is busy promoting his book The Viking Cup-A Small College Town Scores Big Time to help the Augustana Vikings program. A portion of the proceeds from each book sale goes to the Augustana Vikings Hockey Alumni Association that operates the college/university team in Camrose. LeRoy will be signing books at the Fox and Fable downtown location on November 25 from 6 to 8 p.m. and December 1 from 6 to 8 p.m. He will also attend the Camrose Kodiaks game on December 4 at 2 p.m. to sign books that can be purchased for Christmas

presents. The Viking Cup, memoirs and stories of the program’s founder, is a joyful account of an important chapter of Canada’s hockey history. “This is an extremely thorough summary and comprehensive reference of the history of the Viking Cup. It provides a significant amount of information relating to the future of many of the Viking Cup stars, especially those who had careers in the NHL. As a former Camrosian, I applaud the author and those who assisted him with this excellent book and documentation of the Viking Cups,” said Gary Gibeault, former Camrose city manager.

BOYS AND GIRLS

“The excitement of being able to attend several tournaments was a huge part of my childhood…LeRoy Johnson has captured a wonderful set of behind the scenes stories that span the history of one of the most successful international hockey tournaments in the world,” added Dr. Clark Banack, Augustana University of Alberta. “I would say world famous because, no matter where I travelled through the exporting or genetics business, I was amazed when I told people I was from Camrose. Inevitably, the comeback would be the home of the Viking Cup,” said Bob Prestage, former Camrose County reeve and hockey referee, prior to his passing.

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Store manager Dave Kowal and staff at the Rona Camrose store collected about $3,916 from local heroes that are the customers, staff and Lowe’s Canada head office in September, to donate to Camrose Boys and Girls executive director Rees James to go towards the local club.

• City of Camrose Parks Director Chris Clarkson announced that the City showed well in the Communities in Bloom Competition during the summer, earning a rating of four out of five blooms. Camrose finished second, behind Coberg, Ontario, which was the national winner with a five out of five rating. Communities in Bloom is a nation-wide program which encourages environmental awareness and municipal beautification. This was the first time that the City of Camrose participated in this program. • St. Mary’s Hospital Executive Director, Mike Shea, and Dr. Odell Olson were on the road attempting to build relationships that could bring new doctors to Camrose. They set up display booths at Physician Recruitment Fairs in both Edmonton and Calgary with a view to making contact with medical students and residents in the hope that they would establish practices in Camrose when their training is complete. • Daryl Ronald Abram of Camrose was awarded the Camrose Catholic Women’s League (CWL) Bursary of $500. Daryl, age 18, is a graduate of Camrose Composite High School. He is continuing his studies in Business Management at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology. CWL President Anne Laskosky presented the bursary to Daryl’s mother, Joan Abram, as he was studying in Calgary.

• Representatives of the City of Camrose, County of Camrose and Camrose Agricultural Society have met to consider the possibility of constructing a multi-purpose building that might be useful to the City, County and the Ag Society. A joint committee, consisting of two members from the County Recreation Department and the City Recreation Department, one representative from the County Council, and one from the Agricultural Society for the purpose of continuing to study such a project. Elwyn Grattidge is Chairman of the Committee. • A Fashion Show at Bethany Home, which drew an audience of several hundred spectators, was thought to be the first of its kind. The Betty Shop, managed by Mrs. Bernie Magneson, provided the forty-three outfits modeled. All of the sixteen models were residents of Bethany Home and Hospital, ranging in age from 80 years to more than 90. Four of them modeled from wheelchairs. Mrs. Bernie Magneson coordinated the shows. Mrs. Nellie Hoveland was commentator; and Mrs. Margaret Olsen was organist, playing old familiar tunes. Mr. Jens Ness, Rev. Otto Eklund and Pastor Aasen assisted the models on to, and off of, the ramp. • When members of the Camrose North 4-H Beef Club left the area to continue their education, it became necessary to disband. They chose to donate the total assets of the club to the Burgess School. Walter Shute, former 4-H leader, presented the cheque for $46.05 to students Gordon Banack and Sandra Payne and to Mrs. Lois Gillespie, President of the Camrose and District Association for the Mentally Retarded.

Kucy wins national golf title By Murray Green

Devin Kucy of Camrose captured the Maple Leaf Junior Tour Canadian Golf Championship in Orlando Florida and won the Junior Men’s Canadian National Championship for the 2022 golf season, November 10 to 13.

www.wildroseco-op.crs This was the wrap-up tournament to conclude the golf season. Devin is a member of the University of Minnesota Crookston Golden Eagles golf team. Hurricane Nicole ended up being no match for 110 top golfers on Canada’s number-one played Junior Golf Tour, the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour,

as they managed to conclude a highly successful 24th season with the final round of the MJT National Championship. With a Par 72 course, Kucy shot rounds of 72 and 73 for a total of 145 in the championships. His total gave him a two stroke lead of the second place golfer Gavin Ives from Middle

Sackville, Nova Scotia. After a 10-year run on the MJT, it came to a fitting finale when he was crowned the Junior Boys Champion. “I feel great–it’s a great way to close out my junior career,” said a humble Kucy. His sister was in a fight of her own. Jayla Kucy fired rounds of 75 and 73 to place

second in the girls 15 to 19 category. She is a 16-yearold Our Lady of Mount Pleasant School student. The finale in Orlando marked the end of a recordsetting 2022 MJT season; the 2023 Early Bird Membership becomes available December 1st online at www.maplejt.com.

Canadians fear another recession By Damien C. Kurek, MP, Battle River-Crowfoot

Dana Andreassen, BRCF Executive Director, talking with philanthropists, Nancy and Anjah Howard.

Can anyone be a Philanthropist?

ABSOLUTELY!

Philanthropy is a marvelous quality that we all have within us. It’s a generosity of spirit, a desire to help, and a firm belief that you can make a real difference in your community regardless of how much or how little you have to give.

Nancy and Anjah Howard, Philanthropists, have the spirit. Nancy and the late John Howard launched their fund as part of the Community Fund designed to meet the emerging needs of our community. Some years later, daughter Anjah caught the philanthropic spirit and launched her own fund, designated to address needs in the areas of youth or the environment. They are shown in conversation with Dana Andreassen, Executive Director of the Battle River Community Foundation. When John and Nancy moved to Camrose, they became involved in the community in a variety of ways and fell in love with the people who called it home. When a handful of leaders in their new community presented the concept of a community foundation, it made sense to them. According to Nancy, “We learned that we could be part of a group that would invest our meager funds and multiply them. Our initial contributions would remain intact, but earnings would be distributed to meet developing needs in the community.” She went on to say, “We subsequently agreed to set up the John and Nancy Howard Fund and it is our habit to add to it every year.”

Anjah chose to give back to her community through the Battle River Community Foundation because she thinks that it is important to invest and build up the community in which one chooses to live. She feels that while one-time or even on-going donations are important, she sees her investments in the BRCF as having a longer benefit. Anjah elaborated, “By contributing to an endowment, I know that my money will not only support the short-term needs of charitable groups but will build a foundation of sustainable funding that will ensure the longterm viability of these organizations.” She added, “a further benefit is that when an organization knows that it has secure funding to sustain operations, it can focus available energy on providing the services it set out to provide, rather than spending valuable resources and time chasing funding opportunities which may distract from their key mission.” The Battle River Community Foundation can help you fulfill your philanthropic dream – big or small – right here at home. We can help you make your dream a reality. Philanthropy resides in everyone, and together we can make it flourish right here in our own backyard. Contributions received before year end will receive a charitable donation receipt that can be applied against your 2022 income taxes. Contact one of our Board Members or Ambassadors or call the office today, and let’s get started!

On Wednesday, Chrystia Freeland finally admitted what Conservatives have worried about for years; Canada is falling into economic despair. This is the result of the Liberals’ reckless spending, the absurd taxation of Canadians, and the record inflation that has swept through Canada from coast to coast to coast. And still the Bank of Canada is struggling to bring down inflation at 6.9 per cent, it is more than triple the target set by the Bank of Canada. In a flagrant display of hypocrisy, finance minister Chrystia Freeland stated in reference to aiding Canadians through the upcoming financial crisis, “if we were to try to do that, we would be pouring fuel on the inflationary flames, we would just be making the Bank of Canada’s job harder and ensuring that inflation lasted longer and that rates went up even higher.” In other words, the Liberals spent all of the “fiscal firepower” that minister Freeland was boasting about earlier. The Liberals’ over-spending has not only exacerbated the inflationary crisis and created a recession but, now it has left the government in a position where they cannot help Canadians through the next crisis, one the Liberals contributed to. As Canada’s economic situation worsens, analysts and economists from the major banks are calling for a recession in the coming months. Yet, the Liberal government has doubled down on its failed fiscal policies that have left Canadians scrambling to pay their bills. One of the main culprits of the Liberal-induced affordability crisis is the carbon tax, especially when it comes to groceries and nutritious food. It is economic despair served three ways. Farmers have had to pay more for fuel in the production of food, then pass the excess costs on to merchants, who in turn, pass the extra costs on to Canadians who are just trying to provide nutritious food for their families. It didn’t have to be this way. The Liberal government could have curbed their spending and worked to avoid supply chain issues. Instead, the Liberals played politics with Canada’s natural resource sector by its imposition of the Carbon Tax, sabotaging cross-border trade with the rights infringing trucker mandate, and leaving Canadians to flip the bill for all the debts their government has incurred. Canadians are paying more, getting less, and barely getting by, something I hear from constituents daily. A Poilievre government would stick to basics; enable Canadians to succeed by eliminating gatekeepers and needless red tape, repealing the carbon tax and other inflation-causing policies that will no-doubt become the legacy of Justin Trudeau, and adopt responsible spending policies such as capping inflationcausing government spending with a Pay-As-You-Go Law requiring the government to find a dollar of savings for each new dollar of spending. Fiscal accountability is important, and Canadians can turn to Conservatives to ensure that the reign of Trudeau’s abuse of tax dollars is put to an end.

Kodiaks hang on to edge Calgary Canucks

By Murray Green

The Camrose Kodiaks needed a shootout to defeat the Calgary Canucks 5-4 in Alberta Junior Hockey League action on November 12. Camrose built up a 2-0 lead in the opening period on the strength of goals from Lucas Lemieux and Alexander Bryson. Kodiaks added one goal from Owen Dean in the middle frame for Camrose in the first eight seconds to go up 3-0. However, Calgary fought back in the second with two tallies to pull within one. In the third, Carson Brisson scored before

Calgary added two more goals and forced overtime. Dean scored the winner in a shootout when the extra frame didn’t solve the deadlock. Goalie Liam Bechthold stopped 36 of 40 shots. Camrose recorded 22 shots on goal. The Brooks Bandits scored four goals in the middle frame and hung on to beat Camrose 5-1 on November 11. After a scoreless opening period, the Bandits scored four straight markers before Myles Gauld replied for the Kodiaks. Netminder Robert Andreakos stopped 24

of 29 shots fired in his direction. The Kodiaks recorded 24 shots on the Bandits’ net. The Kodiaks are at home on November 22 for a noon game against Blackfalds at the Recreation Centre to a nearly full house during the Hooky Hockey and Agriculture Appreciation game. In December, the Kodiaks are at home on December 3 at 7 p.m. against the Okotoks Oilers; December 4 at 2 p.m. versus the Calgary Canucks; December 9 at 7 p.m. when Blackfalds Bulldogs visit.

Camrose Police Association gives back By Lori Larsen

Type 2 diabetes Misconceptions of Type 1 diabetes Based on International Diabetes Federation data, it is estimated that there are more than nine million cases of Type 1 diabetes worldwide. Approximately 400,000 to 500,000 of these cases are in Canada. This number represents roughly five to 10 per cent of all people diagnosed with diabetes. Type 1 diabetes Jane Yardley, develops when the immune Kinesiology, system attacks and deUniversity of Alberta stroys the insulin-producing Augustana Campus beta cells of the pancreas. Without these cells, the body can’t make insulin, the hormone needed to transport glucose into muscle, liver and fat cells. This situation causes high blood glucose (aka blood sugar) levels, a condition known as hyperglycemia. As it is the rarer type of diabetes, Type 1 diabetes is often misunderstood. For example, some people think that it is the “more serious type” of diabetes. In fact, all forms of diabetes (Type 1, Type 2, and gestational diabetes) can be very serious if not properly treated. These conditions all cause hyperglycemia, albeit in different ways. Short term, hyperglycemia causes excessive thirst, hunger and frequent urination. Long term, it can cause heart disease, kidney failure, blindness and nerve damage. The bottom line is that all types of diabetes should be taken seriously. Many people think that Type 1 diabetes is the only type of diabetes requiring insulin injections. It is true that people with type 1 diabetes need to inject or pump insulin into their bodies daily to stay alive, but they’re not the only people who need insulin treatments. While people with Type 2 diabetes generally don’t need insulin when first diagnosed, insulin injections may become part of their blood glucose management if initial treatments (diet, exercise, oral medications) fail. Some hold the misconception that you get Type 1 diabetes as a baby or a young child. At one point, it was even (mis) named juvenile diabetes. While Type 1 diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases of childhood, it can develop at any age. Experts don’t know the exact trigger for this autoimmune reaction, but they think that genetic susceptibility and an environmental trigger (potentially a viral infection) are required. One can also develop Type 1 diabetes if the pancreas is damaged through infection or trauma. Generally speaking, none of us should eat much sugar, but the idea that people with Type 1 diabetes can’t eat sugar is false. People with Type 1 diabetes can eat just as much sugar as anyone else, they just have to ensure that they take enough insulin to help their bodies process it. Knowing how much insulin to take is complicated. Miscalculations can result in too much insulin being taken, which can lead to dangerously low blood glucose levels (i.e., hypoglycemia). In these situations, people with Type 1 diabetes must consume fast-acting sugar as soon as possible to prevent serious problems (which can include coma and death). Historically, having Type 1 diabetes substantially shortened a person’s life. Prior to the discovery of insulin in 1921 by a group of Canadian scientists, it was a death sentence. In the past 30 years new technologies have vastly improved the health, longevity, and quality of life of people with Type 1 diabetes. Devices now allow real-time continuous monitoring of blood glucose levels, with alarms to notify wearers of highs and lows needing attention. Faster-acting synthetic insulins help prevent quick rises in blood glucose after meals. Newly developed automated insulin delivery systems can adapt insulin delivery to the body based on information from continuous glucose monitors. These new tools help people with Type 1 diabetes keep their blood glucose levels in a range that is similar to people without diabetes. It is still a complex disease that comes with physical and emotional challenges, but it is more manageable now than ever before. Every year in November, as we commemorate Diabetes Awareness month, we celebrate the many scientific advances that continue to improve the lives of people with diabetes.

In support of the community they serve the Camrose Police Association (CPA) each year donates funds raised by members of the Association to a variety of not-for-profit organizations throughout Camrose. “Almost entirely all the funds raised to reinvest into our community, generated from our annual golf tournament,” explained Camrose Police Association treasurer Constable John Tomaszewski. “In the spring of each year, the Association forms a Grant Committee which advertises the opportunity for Camrose organizations to apply for funding to assist with items such as operating costs and capital projects. The eligibility of the applicants is structured around their involvement in the community and we typically award financial assistance to non-profit organizations that have meaningful impact within the community.” The application process is open from May until August 31 and Committee decisions are finalized October 15th with successful applicants being awarded funding shortly after. “This year we received a lot of great applications and the decisions were not easy to make. In the end our successful candidates were $3,000 to Sparling School’s “Shine Bright”– Early Childhood Development Program; $1,000 to Family Violence Action Society (Changing Ways)– Elder Abuse Support Services; $1,000 to Camrose KidSport and $1,000 École Camrose Composite High School’s fitness equipment program,” said Tomaszewski. “We certainly encourage groups to reapply if we are not able to award them a donation at the time of selection.” The Camrose Police Association is a non-profit organization comprised of all sworn members of the Camrose Police Service up to an Inspector’s rank. For more information on the CPA grant program, visit the Facebook page or email camrosepolice association@gmail.com.

Camrose HARVEST

By Murray Green

The Augustana Vikings compete in the 2022-23 Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference. Cross country Augustana runner Reese Bendiksen earned a bronze medal at the CCAA championships on November 12 hosted by Medicine Hat College. She crossed the finish line in 22:40, just .03 seconds after the second runner. Aman Leung and Karli Tluchak of Augustana also entered the women’s race. Ben Nawrot was the top Vikings runner on the men’s side in 29th place. Teammate Sam Nawrot placed 53rd. Ewan Schellenberg, Joe Mwatha, Jared Gourley and James Saly also completed the race. Hockey The Vikings lost 4-3 in overtime to the SAIT Trojans in hockey action on November 11. SAIT led 1-0 after the first period and 3-1 after 40 minutes. Jack Hamly of the Vikings connected on the power play. Augustana owned the third period with Conrad Phillips and Jake Gudjonson (on a power play) scoring to tie the game and force overtime. Vikings goalie Rett Rook stopped 34 of 38 shots he faced. Augustana fired 49 shots at the SAIT cage. In the rematch, SAIT won 6-3 the next night. It was a game of momentum shifts as SAIT scored the first two goals and then Augustana netted two to tie the contest. Owen Lamb garnered both goals for the Vikings on the power play. However, SAIT then scored twice to regain the lead. In the third, Hamly made the game close until the last five minutes when SAIT pulled away. Goalie Rook stopped 22 of 27 shots directed his way. The Vikings sit in fourth place with nine points after eight games and a 4-3-1 record. The next home game is on November 26 at 6 p.m. when the NAIT Ooks are in Camrose. Basketball The Augustana basketball teams had a week off to reset and rest. The next home games are on November 25 at 6 and 8 p.m. against the Lakeland Rustlers.

Council committee changes By Lori Larsen

City of Camrose council appointed councillor Don Rosland as an alternate to the Subdivision and Development Appeal Board, effective November 7 until 2023 Organizational meeting of Council. Rosland will replace the current alternate Mayor PJ Stasko who was unable to serve in that role because of his appointment as an alternate member of the Municipal Planning Advisory Committee. The current alternate,

appointment for the Parkland Regional Library (PRL) Board, Elizabeth Luck, is term-limited in her appointment to the Camrose Public Library, and therefore council will also be appointing a new alternate to the Parkland Regional Library Board to be determined at a later date. Council also appointed all members of council to serve on the Finance Committee of Council, in order to match the practice from the previous council term.

Some might think driving to Calgary or Edmonton to teach for four days could be a bit of a task. So imagine teaching for four days in just over a week half way across the globe. That is exactly what Camrosian Kathleen Riggins did from November 7, when she flew out of Canada to Adelaide, Australia to teach seven different classes in free motion quilting over four days at the Australia Machine Quilting Festival, to November 14 when she returned to Canada. Kathleen described free motion quilting as the stitching that holds the three layers of the quilt

together with the using a darning foot on the machine designed to hover over the surface of the quilt that allows moving the quilt in all directions. Kathleen taught two classes on Thursday, Friday

and Saturday and one class on Sunday, ranging between two to six hours each and students consisted mostly of people from Australia with a few from New Zealand. “On Friday and Saturday, I did 10 hours of teaching each day.” This was Kathleen’s third time teaching at the Festival, with her first occurring in 2016 after one of her friends who lives in Australia suggested she should apply to teach. “So I applied and was selected.” Despite the Festival later being sold to a different owner, Kathleen attended the Festival again in 2018, on the high recommendation of the previous owner.

“I was supposed to go in 2020 but it had been postponed until this year.” Obviously, this young woman from the little City of Camrose has gained international popularity and has become highly regarded in the world of quilting. Not only was she teaching students that are generally quite a bit older than herself, but her classes were the fullest of any of the teachers at the Festival. “I have been quilting since I was very young, probably around three,” noted Kathleen. “I grew up around quilting and I just love it–everything about it.” She has not only transitioned from the basics of quilting to creating her own

patterns and teaching, but has also written one published book and six locally printed books on the topic. “I have been doing this for a long time. There are not that many people who have been quilting longer than me any more,” laughed Kathleen. “It is just weird realizing that I am the person with the most experience now.” Almost immediately after her return from Australia, with little to no adjustment for the time difference, Kathleen was back to teaching her quilting classes in Camrose and chasing after her two young children, as though she hadn’t just been 14,214 km away.

Churchmice play offers mystery By Murray Green

Churchmice Players will be presenting The Bold, The Young and The Murdered murder mystery comedy at the historic Bailey Theatre. “I’m playing a duel role. I’m John Burke and Valencio Di Carpathio. John is an upper class Englishman personality, who has been on the show for 47 years and he is used to getting his way–set in his ways. Valencio is a very evil man whose childhood was a false persona of someone like Mickey Mouse. It has made him evil, so he has been evil the rest of his life. He is out to destroy people and hates everyone,” said Andrew Little. The long-running soap opera The Bold and the Young is in its last days: its hunky hero has self-esteem issues, its villainous old man is more interested in soup and its heroines are slightly psychopathic. “I don’t find it too terribly bad playing two different characters. One is an English accent and the other an eastern European accent. I find it okay to jump back and forth between characters,” shared Andrew. The executive producer gives the squabbling cast an ultimatum: Complete one episode overnight or the show dies. But when the director ends up murdered, and other cast members start dropping like flies, it seems like his threat might actually come true. Can these misfits discover the murderer before the show is literally killed off? “I actually wanted to

perform this play for a long time now and have been trying for a number of years. I proposed it to Churchmice, but then we had COVID-19. Now they decided to try this one,” explained Andrew. “It is about time we all had a good laugh about something. This offers right off the cuff laughter. It’s a spoof about a soap opera that has murder mystery, but is a comedy. The first time I read the script, I laughed from the beginning until the end. I thought this is perfect to put on stage. People want to laugh and have a good time, that is why I thought it would be a great play to put on,” said Andrew. “I hope everyone will be entertained. We have a great cast who have picked up the lines very well. I believe it will be a great show. We wanted a play that entertains, not necessarily Christmas, but one where people can have parties or get-togethers and enjoy the show,” said Andrew. In total, Churchmice has 14 members in the cast or part of the production. “We don’t have one major role, it is spread out over various characters and that is good for everyone involved. There are a number of wonderful monologues throughout the play,” suggested Andrew. The production runs on December 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 and 10. A 6 p.m. dinner is followed by show times at 7:30 p.m. A matinee (without dinner) will be held on December 4 at 2 p.m.

Midnight Madness arrives By Lori Larsen

THE BOLD

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Kevin Schole and Andrew Little rehearse their lines in the Churchmice Players version of the play The Bold, The Young and The Murdered murder mystery comedy that will be showing at the Bailey Theatre in early December.

Join in the madness in Downtown Camrose on Friday, November 25 for an evening of shopping and holiday fun, during the annual Midnight Madness event. Take a break from shopping at the variety of unique downtown businesses and rest your feet on a horse-drawn wagon ride,

touring through the streets leaving from Founders Square on 51 Street. As you mosey down the street, taking in the sights and sounds, enjoy the ringing of bells with EmBellish in front of the United Church, or join in a chorus or two with local carolers. It wouldn’t be Midnight Madness without an ap-

pearance by the jolly fella himself, Santa Claus and his faithful sidekick Mrs. Claus. This is the perfect time to make sure you make it to the “nice” side of his famous list. Twinkling lights, festive decor, clippity-clop of beautiful horses and Old St. Nick make Midnight Madness a special holiday tradition.

Boosting the community

FOR 70 YEARS By Lori Larsen

Berdie and Bill Fowler, founders of The Camrose Booster

IIn n a world w wor orld d th that hat ccha chang changes anges ges cconcon stantly stan ttantly ntly y and a d a time tim t me when wh w many ma any y busine businesses business b busiinesses esses es str struggle strug to not true to their only y su surviv surv survive, urvive, vive, ve, but b re remain rem vision, visio iision, on, it is ra rare to hear about a 70-year legacy high standards and a legac lleg gacy cy of o maintaining main ma quality qualit product. But that, folks, is exactly what qua The Camrose Booster has done, and continues to do, with pride. Establishing a history

Founded by Berdie and Bill Fowler in 1952, The Camrose Booster has maintained its mission of providing a boost to Camrose in all aspects. The Booster has been delivering local news and advertising to households in the City of Camrose and Camrose County since 2,000 copies of Volume I No. 1 were distributed on November 25, 1952. As the idea of a free local paper started taking shape, deciding on a name that would best reflect the Fowler’s vision was as important as the content itself. Settling on The Camrose Booster best reflected what the paper would be about–boosting the community(s) it serves. While the idea of establishing a weekly newspaper was appealing to both Berdie and Bill, the actual process was a bit more daunting. It took the promise of a six-week commitment of advertising in the paper from local businesses to convince the bank to lend funds to assist in getting the new venture from the Fowler’s kitchen table to the kitchen tables of residents in Camrose and Camrose County. “When The Booster began, several other free-distribution papers already existed in a number of Alberta and BC communities,” explained Bonnie Hutchinson, Berdie and Bill’s eldest daughter and The Camrose Booster weekly columnist. “Wetaskiwin and Ponoka were the ones closest to the Booster, and the owners of those papers were very helpful to The Booster as it was getting off the ground.” With a total investment of $11, hours of labour and a vision to give Camrose and area a free weekly local paper, Berdie and Bill produced a 20-page, 8-1/2” x 14” newsprint paper, held together with a single staple in the top left-hand corner. The founders

Berdie (Anderson) and Bill Fowler married in 1940, beginbegi ning a 51-year 51-ye marriage, that, tha like many, had ha ad

its but wass never its share shar sh hare re of o ups u and downs, do ne er short on n adventure. adventur adven adv The couple spent from 1940 until 1945, moving to various bases of the Royal Canadian Air Force. When Bill was shipped overseas in 1944, Berdie, along with children Bonnie (eldest daughter) and Blain (eldest son), returned to Camrose. “Dad returned in 1945, and he farmed with my grandfather,” said Blain. After the loss of another son within hours of birth, the couple soon welcomed Beth (youngest daughter) and Bruce (youngest son). With the newspaper business underway, it wasn’t long until Bill established a reputation in Camrose and area as a top-notch salesman, selling advertising to local businesses, while promoting the paper as “always better–always better read”, the community’s most reliable resource of news and advertising. “Everybody knew him as Booster Bill,” recalled Blain. “Dad always wore a Stetson hat and was proud of being a westerner.” Despite having somewhat limited experience in the newspaper industry, working for the Edmonton Journal prior to being in the Air Force and marrying Berdie, Bill had something much more valuable. He had the gift of “talk”, and he could sell. But he also liked to write, a perfect combination for producing a local newspaper that brought the citizens what they wanted–all the news and all the deals. As for Berdie, she was known for her efficiency, accuracy and stellar reputation, not only in the community, but provincially and nationally as well. “She was on the board of TransAlta Utilities and the board of Alberta Opportunities Company. She was widely respected as one of the leading business people,” said Blain. She also served as an alderman and helped establish vital programs and services in Camrose. Berdie was also known for her incredible gift with words and won several awards for her “Pen Points” columns, including the coveted Independent Free Papers of America (IFPA) Joseph M. Sklenar Editorial Award of Excellence. As strong advocates for the community and continued success of businesses in Camrose and area, both Berdie and Bill served as presidents for the Camrose Chamber of Commerce and on City Council. Bill passed away in 1991, leaving behind a trail of customers who respected his passion to promote and support their best interests. Berdie, never one to just let the world pass her by, continued work working at the Booster, even if rem remotely, contributing to the community, com travelling

ith her family famil until ntil her and spending time with passing in 2013 at the age of 93. “She phoned me on the Saturday morning (prior to the last ‘Pen Points’ column), confused about her latest column,” smiled Blain. “She wanted me to read it over to ensure that it made sense and then asked me to write a title for her column.” It turned out that she had just experienced a series of mini-strokes, and three weeks after that column was printed, Berdie passed away. Seventy years after Berdie and Bill started the paper, many Camrose citizens still speak fondly of the couple, not only for the legacy of the local paper, but for their unfaltering dedication to a community they loved. They were loving parents and grandparents, committed businesspeople and devoted community members; and although I never had the opportunity to meet them, I can’t help but feel proud to be a part of their legacy. Production

In the beginning, production for The Camrose Booster was, to say the least, an arduous, time-consuming task. Bonnie recalls what it took to produce a newspaper. “In the beginning, the paper was done on a card table in Mom and Dad’s bedroom. Mom would hand-print, hand-draw and manually type on the metal plates–ads and editorial,” explained Bonnie, adding that the offset press artwork was done on metal plates with a typewriter and India ink, and lettering for headlines and all drawings were done by hand. “Smaller text was typed. If you actually touched the metal plate, the fingerprint would show up on the printed page.” Bonnie further explained that the benefit of offset was not having to melt and reset every metal letter of every word in the paper. “Also, you didn’t have to type everything backwards. The printed copy would look the same as the printed master copy. “A huge upgrade was when the basement of our home (a 625-square foot story-and-a-half) was converted to the Booster office,” remarked Bonnie. “It had counters and a typewriter. When you went down the basement stairs, on your left was the Camrose Booster office, and on your right was the wringer washer and some wire clotheslines, plus the furnace.” As time progressed, so did the newspaper production, eventually changing from the use of metal plates to pages being typed and hand-printed on paper, which was then photographed for negatives that were burned onto metal plates. “I think that’s the same basic process as is used now, though no doubt with many enhancements.” Seven decades of Camrose Booster excellence

On Tuesdays, Bill would drive to Ponoka with the metal plates and the Ponoka paper would print The Booster editions. Then Bill would return with the printed papers to Camrose. “A crew of ladies would come in and collate the stacks of pages into each Booster, which was then stapled in one corner.” The finished product was then delivered by 12 paperboys to every home in Camrose, and Bill would take bundles to the post office for rural delivery. “As a sidebar, at some point, the Booster got its own offset press, which was also in the basement of our home,” remembered Bonnie. Carrying on

In 1976, Blain purchased Berdie and Bill’s shares of the Camrose Booster and took over operations. He worked his way through the business from a carrier at nine years old to his present position as publisher. Blain continues to ensure the Booster team produces the same quality paper for which his parents had come to be known; and while he has an extensive understanding of the entire process, admits he still favours the creation of advertising, and credits the late Max McLean for fueling his passion for creating good-looking ads that sell. Like his parents, Blain also believes strongly in the importance of community, both in the office and in the greater community of Camrose. The Camrose Booster is widely known in the free community paper industry as being a leading publication. “Being an ‘outlaw’ amongst Canadian community newspapers because we are a free publication, we joined the National Association of Advertising Publishers, an American organization, in 1978,” explained Blain. Blain served one term as a director before NAAP split into two: The Independent Free Papers of America (for independent papers), and the Association of Free Community Papers (for both chain-owned papers and independents). He also served one term as a director of NAAP and several terms as a director of IFPA, culminating as president. The two groups recently reconnected and are now known as the Association of Community Publishers. “While a member of these organizations, The Camrose Booster received many awards for our work with ads, reporting, columns, design, and photography. It also received recognition for General Excellence, placing in the top three several times, as well as First Place in the under 25 per cent editorial content class on five separate occasions,” said Blain. In 2022, competing with papers of various sizes across North America, employees of the Booster received no less than 24 awards, and this publication was amongst fourr papers apers named as “Best in Show.” .

Keeping up with the times

So many things have changed over 70 years of producing The Booster, but the end result is still the same–a reliable and, free, local newspaper delivered to doors and mailboxes of residences in the City of Camrose and rural trading area. While some of the pre-press activity, such as content gathering of news stories, articles, advertorials and advertisements, remains similar to when the paper first started, the majority of the production process has changed, utilizing state-of-the-art technology. Once the content is gathered, the team works at creating, designing and composing the layout of whole pages on digital format, which are edited then sent electronically to press for printing. With the exception of printing off the odd hard copy for approval or proofing, almost everything is done now with the click of a finger and press of a key in front of a screen. The business has expanded in 70 years to include not only the weekly regular edition Camrose Booster, but a bi-weekly Country Booster edition, four editions of The Super Booster, a fully informed website and, in keeping with the fast pace of finger-tip technology, the Camrose Now! app. However, the flagship operation, the newspaper that was founded by a couple of trailblazers 70 years ago, remains the quality product it started out, as confirmed by its continual success in winning awards through various trade associations throughout North America, to which it belongs. The home team

The Camrose Booster has continued to be a locally owned and operated family organization built on a solid foundation created by Berdie and Bill. Blain and wife Marlene’s eldest son Kirby is the production manager, daughter Andrea is the office administrator, and youngest son Jeff is an account executive. Bonnie’s son Don Hutchinson also works as the Booster comptroller. The Booster team consists of 18 people in full- and part-time positions, the average of whom have been with the company over 15 years, and over 45 paper carriers who, come rain or shine, make suree the paper is delivered every Tuesday. day. y After each h Tuesday, T Tuesd uesday, day, y, at approximately approxima roximately imately ately y 11 1 a.m. a.m when h thee printed hen printe prrinted ed copy ccop py hits h the streets, team streeets, streets s, the th he te am has ha already rebooted alread alre l ady reboot lready reb booted ted the tthe proprro

cess of ensuring the next edition meets its deadline. In 70 years of producing a weekly (plus) newspaper, getting The Booster to the readership on Tuesday has never been missed. The circulation of The Booster is audited by the Circulation Verification Council, with headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri. In eight of the nine years it was offered, The Camrose Booster received the Gold Standard Award for being in the top one per cent of all the roughly 4,000 publications audited by this organization. This rating is based on receivership, readership, and the paper’s ability to influence buying decisions. “We are extremely proud of the outstanding record of the performance of the people who work in our distribution system,” remarked Blain. “We are also thankful for the loyalty of our readers. According to our auditors, our readership over the last 15 years has ranged between 81 and 84 per cent, with an accuracy of plus or minus three per cent nineteen times out of twenty. In other words, our readership has remained constant over the years, despite the commonly spoken thought that ‘nobody reads a paper anymore’. Well, they certainly do in The Booster coverage area!” Looking ahead, The Booster will continue to provide Camrose and area residents with relevant stories and information about their community(s) and will be an effective vehicle for local businesses to reach their valued customers. Seventy years ago, Berdie and Bill Fowler took a chance on believing in their community and began a venture with The Camrose Booster that has not only survived, but thrived–a local free newspaper that has been the voice boosting Camrose and its trading area for so many years. It seems that the promise of instant success has burdened our world with a lack of staying power. It takes commitment, determination, hard work and a mindset that what one does has the potential to positively impact others to earn the title of a long-lasting legacy.

NO SUGAR

Murray Green, Camrose Booster Randy Bachman, formerly with The Guess Who and Bachman Turner Overdrive, told the story of how the song “No Sugar Tonight” came about during his concert at the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre on Thursday, November 10. His stories entertained the soldout crowd as much as the iconic music.

The Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre has a great line-up of shows for the fall and winter season. Boom will finally be on stage on November 22. “It is a celebration of the Boomers period of music. It is very much like a Forrest Gump experience, where they take you on a journey of great music and events,” said general manager, Nick Beach. Tyler Shaw will be performing on the Cargill Theatre stage on November 24. He is a Canadian singersongwriter, that takes much of his inspiration from other Canadian artists. East Coast Christmas by Barra MacNeils returns on November 25. “We are excited to have them back. This is one of the most popular Christmas shows we have had. This is becoming a Christmas Tradition in Camrose.” Love’s Journey by Nicole J. Brooks of Augustana on November 26. “She performed a couple of songs with Roger last year. She has this extraordinary voice and is very talented. Now she has her own show.” Camrose Composite Playhouse presents Disney’s Newsies for three shows. You can watch high school theatre at its best on December 2 at 7 p.m.; December 3 at 1:30 p.m. or December 3 at 7 p.m. This show was also a Broadway hit. Alberta’s Terri Clark is bringing her first Christmas tour to Camrose at the Jeanne and Peter Lougheded Performing Arts Centre on December 4. The It’s Christmas... Cheers! tour promises to be full of familiar hits and holiday favorites from the Canadian Country Music Association Hall of Fame member and her band. “Christmas has always been my favorite time of year. I released my first Christmas album in 2020, so this year is the first opportunity that I’ve had since then to play some of these holiday favorites live. I’m very excited to bring some Christmas cheers and a few familiar hits to select markets in Canada this year. It’s truly coming home for the holidays,” Terri said.

Classic Country Brokop

Banquets

By Murray Green

The Bailey Theatre has a great line-up of fall and winter shows planned for this season. Here are some of the highlights. A Classic Country Christmas with Lisa Brokop will be held at the Bailey on November 25 at 8 p.m. Imagine breaking up your Midnight Madness shopping with a great Christmas concert. Lisa will share some of her favorite country Christmas songs. She has gathered songs that have meant the most to her over the years. “Oh Holy Night,” “Beautiful Star of Bethlehem,” “Christmas Times A Comin” and “Shake Me I Rattle” a Christmas recording of Lisa’s that has been a December radio favorite across Canada. Another Rose City Roots Society show will be Dione Taylor, who is a blues, roots, soul and jazz artist. She appears on November 26 at the Bailey. Taylor was nominated for a Gemini Award for her rendition of Oscar Peterson’s “Hymn to Freedom,” which she performed alongside Oliver Jones at the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame Gala. The Bailey Buckaroos have special guests featured each month with a classic country music extravaganza, which is fun for the whole family. The third of 10 shows is on Sunday, November 27 starting at 2 p.m. The Bold, the Young and the Murdered play presented by The Churchmice Players is a murder mystery comedy. Some shows are a dinner theatre: Thursday to Saturday, December 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 and 10 with dinner at 6 p.m. and show following at 7:30 p.m. A Sunday matinee will be held on December 4 at 2 p.m. with no dinner.

Burtch revives 1965 Impala convertible By Murray Green

Lanny Burtch owns a 1965 Chevrolet Impala convertible. “This car started in Camrose. I bought it off guy from Leduc. This car was originally a red convertible and I found that out when I tore it down. The guy that had it in Camrose didn’t like this colour, so he painted it red. I returned it to the colour it should be,” explained Lanny. The Chevrolet Impala (fourth generation) are full-size automobiles produced by Chevrolet for the 1965 through 1970 model years. “We have had this car for more than 20 years now. I really like the style of the 1965 Impalas. It is a nice style and we have been all over Canada and across the United States with this car. It is nice to drive, like you are in a living room,” he added. The 1965 Impala was all new, while the 1967 and 1969 models featured new bodies on the same redesigned perimeter frame introduced on the 1965 models. “It has a 283 motor with a two-barrel carburetor, that is original. I rebuilt the motor, so it gets about 25 miles to the gallon. That’s not too bad. The car has a two-speed pow-

FUN FACTS

Totally redesigned in 1965, the Impala set an alltime industry annual sales record of more than one million units in the U.S.; which has never been bettered. The new full-size Chevrolets featured dramatically rounded sides, and an all-new front end with new hood contours, curved, frameless side glass (for pillarless models), and sharper angled windshield with newly reshaped vent windows. Sport coupes wore a sleek semi-fastback roofline and wheel well moldings were revised. Chevrolet promoted the cars’ wide-stance design, adhesively bonded windshield, and improved fullcoil suspension. Two-range Powerglide, as well as synchro-mesh three- and four-speed manual transmissions were available. The Turbo Hydra-Matic automatic transmission was offered for the first time. As with previous years, Impalas featured more chrome trim inside and out, with pleated tufted upholstery and door panels plus simulated walnut trim on the lower instrument panel. Engine choices included the inline six-cylinder as well as the famous Chevrolet small-block and bigblock V8s. Automatic transmission buyers were given the option of the newly introduced three-range Turbo Hydra-Matic for the newly introduced Mark IV bigblock engine, displacing 396 cubic inches.

re-done to the way it was originally. It wasn’t a frame off, but pretty close. The paint is about 11 years old. We fix and drive cars as a hobby. My wife said to me one time, what do you want to do as a hobby. As soon as we fixed it up, we took it to a car show,” Lanny said. All Impalas of this generation received annual face lifts as well, distinguishing each model year. After the local car show he was off to Manitoba for another show. “Then we (with wife Laurel) go to Ontario and we cruise there and back hitting some shows as we drive. It has been fun. Actually when it gets hot it is cooler running with the top up than it is when it is down. You could get burnt pretty good. One time, we were in Boise, Idaho and the sun was beating down and even my feet were burnt,” he laughed. Throughout the early 1960s, Chevrolet’s basic body designs became increasingly subtle, while the bright trim that was part of

the Impala package added more than a touch of luxury to the look. “The old girl has treated me well. It’s a nice car and I like my car. I have two cars, so I don’t drive as much as I used to. My other

car is a Ford and I’m not a Ford guy,” he laughed. The same pattern was followed in the interiors, where the best materials and equipment Chevrolet had to offer were displayed.

The Camrose Crush needed a shootout to defeat the Westlock Warriors 8-7 in a North Central Hockey League ​​​​​​​contest on November 12. Ryley Bennefield scored twice and collected four points to lead the Crush into battle against the Warriors. Westlock pounded the Crush early and took a 3-0 lead before the home team responded late in the opening period. Dayton Murray and Bennefield scored to close the gap to one after the first 20 minutes of play. Camrose keep the heat on in the middle frame when Bennefield added his second and Matt Hillyers scored. The Warriors bounced back with two tallies to regain the lead. Camrose scored twice in 51 seconds to take back the lead, the second mark-

The University of Alberta Augustana Campus drama department will be presenting Medea November 24 to 27 at the Augustana Theatre Centre. This year’s show is an adaption written by students at Augustana and directed by Edmonton director Christopher Bullough. The leads are two local actresses Anika Briscoe as Medea and Kyra Gusdal as Lord. Both Briscoe and Gusdal worked on a show at the Edmonton International Fringe Festival last August, and are thrilled to hit the stage together along with their cast of young new actors in this comedy about death, revenge and love. Medea is an ancient Greek tragedy written by Euripides, based upon the myth of Jason and Medea and first produced in

431 BC. The plot centers on the actions of Medea, a former princess of the kingdom of Colchis and the wife of Jason. She finds her position in the Greek world threatened as Jason leaves her for a Greek princess of Corinth. Medea takes vengeance on Jason by murdering his new wife, as well as her own two sons, after which she escapes to Athens to start a new life. The play is also the only Greek tragedy in which a kin-killer makes it unpunished to the end of the play. The play will be featured at the Augustana Theatre Centre from November 24 to 27. Evening shows on Thursday, Friday and Saturday start at 7:30 p.m. Matinee shows on Saturday and Sunday begin at 2 p.m. Tickets are available at the door.

Kodiaks players looking ahead By Lori Larsen

As most Camrose Kodiaks players will attest, having the opportunity to play for a Junior A hockey team is an honour in itself and validates the hard work and dedication they have put in to their sport. However, reaping the rewards has the potential to go even further, when they are fortunate (and talented) enough to be scouted to play at college/university level and receive scholarships for their continued education. Three such Kodiaks players, centre Ryan Sullivan, forward (left/right wing, centre) Callum Gau and defence Cooper Sharp, recently found out their futures, in hockey and continuing studies, will be secured with universities in the United States.

Ryan said one of the other people who has had positive influence on him is NHL player Sidney Crosby. “I grew up watching him and I idolized the way he played hockey. He did everything the right way.” Which is exactly what Ryan is making every effort to do, on and off the ice. On this particular evening Ryan, along with fellow players Callum and Cooper, was volunteering serving the community at the Moose Hall free spaghetti supper. “Realizing just how lucky I am be involved in this sport, it is a big opportunity to play for a Junior team and also be able to go to school (post secondary), giving back to the community is super

the next little while leading to Callum being offered and accepting a position with the school team and as a student in business studies. “As a 20-year-old you definitely want to talk to as many schools and Augustana showed the most interest.” Callum feels that Sioux Falls will be a more natural progression for him, going from smaller city atmosphere of Camrose to being away from home the first time (for any length of time). “It’s bigger, but nothing crazy. Having lived in Camrose my whole life and playing hockey here, not going to a huge city or school will be best for me.” Callum explained that next year (2023) will be

It, no doubt, will be difficult for Callum’s parents and perhaps older sisters to see him go so far away for school, but it is his 13-yearold brother that will likely miss him the most. “I think he is excited–he is always asking questions. I think it is his dream, too, to kind of follow in the same footsteps, play hockey and go to school somewhere.” Having played for the Kodiaks for five years now, Callum is very attuned to the importance of giving back to his community. “When we go to the schools to read books to the kids, that gets them excited and they want to come out to the rink. “I remember growing up, and the Kodiaks would

Ryan

Ryan committed with Colgate University located outside of Hamilton, New York, USA and will be beginning his time there in September of 2023. Excited to be moving forward with both his hockey and academics (majoring in Business/Economics four year program), Ryan said he was happy to be given this opportunity. “It is such a great program to be joining.” Ryan was recruited by coaches and staff of Colgate, that attend games or showcases scouting out talent to play on their school team. “They watched and they must have liked the way I play,” laughed Ryan. But while it took talent playing hockey to get him there, he will also be focusing on his academics. “My family is super academic and that was a big part of choosing Colgate. It is such an academic school it is the perfect match of hockey and academics for my family.” Ryan moved with family from Eastern Canada to Calgary when he was around four and has lived there ever since. This is his third year playing with the Kodiaks. Having played hockey since the very young age of five, Ryan aspires to one day play pro, but ultimately wants to be able to play as long as he is able. “I love hockey.” Both Ryan and his younger brother Nathan play for the Kodiaks and while they aren’t necessarily from a long line of hockey playing family, Ryan said that his father did play a little bit in high school. “My brother and I we’re kinda the first.” His mother and father have been very supportive of the boys hockey and continue to be proud fans showing up for games every where they can. Outside of his parents,

important for me.” When not playing during the season Ryan tries to spend a little time away from the arena, which he admits is hard because he loves being on the ice. “I work out with a group of my friends and enjoy spending some time at the Lake Koocanusa in BC.” He also works at a golf course and coaches hockey for youth. “I really love coaching younger players.” Callum

Hometown boy Callum Gau has committed to, believe it or not, Augustana University, this one in Souix Falls, South Dakota, USA for the fall semester of 2023. “I talked to the Augustana Souix Falls assistant coach at the showcase in Blackfalds, all the teams in the league were there that weekend so it was a good chance for the scouts to come and watch.” And apparently what they saw in Callum they liked so conversations progressed over

the first year Sioux Falls Augustana University will have this hockey organization, so he will be going in at ground level. “That was one of the reasons I chose to go there because they are bringing in people that they want to build their organization around.” Unsure of where his hockey career will lead, Callum said that committing to Sioux Falls and playing college hockey will be the next step. “I’m not sure if that would be the end (of a more professional level of hockey), but for right now, that is a long ways away and I have four years to focus on my schooling.” Callum started playing hockey around the age of five, as soon as he could stand up on skates, and has been actively involved in other activities such as the Camrose Swim Club, as well. Along with his busy hockey schedule, he is currently a second-year apprentice electrician.

come and read to us. That was a highlight of school. Camrose is a hockey town and a lot of the kids in school are coming up through minor hockey and the Kodiaks are the top team in the town and they are seen as role models. When they get to be around us it brightens everybody’s day,” said Callum adding that it is such a good feeling when they (Kodiaks) show up at a school and they get hugs from the young students. When asked if there was a player he admired when growing up, Callum was quick to reply. “For sure, my dad. He was coaching and was a really good hockey player while growing up. He went and played college hockey in Red Deer. I always hear stories of how good he was and how hard he worked.” Cooper

Local player Cooper Sharp (defence), one of the youngest players on the Kodiaks. At 17, he has

been fortunate enough to get a good jumpstart on his future in hockey and academics, having committed to Union University in New York, USA beginning in the fall of 2024. “This is pretty exciting,” said Cooper. “Being from a small town like Camrose, going to a big city. The school isn’t right in New York, it’s a little bit outside. It’s a smaller feel, not super big, which is good for me.” Union first saw Cooper play during an exhibition game at the beginning of the year and have been texting and telephoning back and forth since then, eventually offering him a scholarship for 2024/25. At this point, Cooper is considering studies in economic/business. If you thought five was young to strap on skates and start playing hockey, then you are bound to be impressed with the fact that Cooper was only four when he took to the game. “None of my family played hockey, that is just what they decided to put me in.” But he was hooked (no pun intended) right away and has loved playing the sport ever since. “I grew up watching the Kodiaks and my family actually billeted for 10 to 11 years.” He said he never really watched a lot of hockey on television growing up, but did admire the way NHL player Ryan Smyth played. Now settled into his first year playing for the Kodiaks, Cooper is quickly learning that with this incredible opportunity comes great responsibility both on the ice and off. “The community and Kodiaks organization has done so much for me,” he said. “I have been given the opportunity to play, so it is nice to get out and give back, to be able to return that a little bit to the community.” Joining his teammates in helping to serve community members at a free spaghetti supper held every Wednesday at the Moose Hall, it wasn’t hard for Cooper to see that every kind gesture is appreciated by someone. One volunteer activity he finds particularly fun is being able to go to local schools to help out with younger students reading or assisting the school with events. “It’s fun to see my past teachers,” he smiled. Having been involved in teams sports for almost his entire, albeit young, life, Cooper has come to realize the important lessons organized sports teaches to young people. Continued on page 33

Gordon Bailer

On November 15, 2022, Gordon passed away surrounded by family. Born to Albert and Tillie Bailer in 1929, Gordon was raised on a farm east of Forestburg. Married to Irene McMahon in 1952, they had a strong and devoted marriage of over 70 years. He was a deeply committed farmer, with an immense work ethic. Often he worked from before sunrise to after sunset to provide for his family. Once the Railview Hereford cattle were dispersed, grain farming became the focus. He was always keen to know canola prices or the state of the harvest, even after he and Irene sold the farm in 1991 and moved to Camrose. Road trips to survey crop conditions around Forestburg were a ritual. Gordon was a passionate fan of the Montreal Canadiens and of Stampede chuckwagon races. We marvelled at his ability to do calculations in his head and at his excellent memory. Gordon is survived by his wife Irene; their children Larry (Carol), Marilyn, Dwayne (Laurie), Bonnie (Allan), and Joanne; as well as six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by grandson Adam. Gordon will be greatly missed by all for the twinkle in his eye, the kindness in his heart and the depth of his wisdom. Thank you to Dr. Minders, the MAID team and the Unit 2 staff at St. Mary’s Hospital for their compassionate care. At his request, there will be no service. Any donations on his behalf may be made to the Alzheimer Society or the charity of one’s choice.

Olga Szott

Olga Szott was born March 26, 1930 to Ed and Rose Rogoski. The family lived on a farm near Daysland. Olga was the second of eight children. Olga was a natural born designer. Every place she lived in and all of her clothing reflected her love of glamour. One of Olga’s first childhood memories was making sunglasses out of wire and turning her bedroom into something beautiful, despite having no money. With this talent for aesthetics, Olga created a beautiful home and life for her husband Joe and daughter, Laurie. Although she brought beauty into her life, she worked hard, first on her parent’s farm until the age of 17. In 1947, she married Josef Szott and they started their adventure together. She got jobs at the Daysland Café and Daysland Hospital in the laundry department. After that, she worked at the Daysland Pharmacy. Olga and Josef retired to Camrose in 1987. Left to cherish the memory of her love is her daughter Laurie and son-in-law Robert Rogers; sisters Alex Szott and Margaret Miciak, (Brian); and brother Ken Rogoski (Laura). Also left behind are some dear sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her beloved Josef in 2012; and siblings Anne, Helen, Albert and Stanley. The last few years of her life, Olga suffered from osteoporosis, which caused great pain and limited her movement. Thanks to the fantastic and caring staff at Seasons and Dr. Slabbert for the help and kindness they provided. Thanks to all of the family (especially Margret) and friends who brought Olga joy and love throughout her life. A Mass of Christian Burial was held at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, November 22, 2022 at St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church. Memorial donations may be made to the St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church.

Kore Bohmer

January 19, 1923 ~ November 12, 2022 Kore Bohmer of Daysland, AB, formerly of Bawlf, AB, passed away peacefully with Brenda by his side on Saturday, November 12, 2022, at the age of 99 years. Kore was born in Faberg, Norway on January 19, 1923. Along with his family, he emigrated from Norway in 1929, arriving by ship at Pier 21 in Halifax, and then continuing by train to Bawlf. Through the depression in the 1930s, the Bohmers moved and rented three different farms until they were able to purchase the farm in 1945. Kore attended school at Allied, Acme and Hartland Schools. He began helping his dad work the fields with horsedrawn equipment at nine years of age. Kore met Lil while visiting the Loken farm which was a half mile away. They were married on July 31, 1949, and were blessed with two children: Calvin in 1952 and Brenda in 1957. Kore was an avid outdoorsman, fisherman and hunter. He was involved in various organizations including the Bawlf 4-H Club, Bawlf Boy Scouts, Camrose Rifle & Revolver Club, Rose City Amateur Radio Club (VE6 KOR), Bawlf Curling Club and the Bawlf Lutheran Church. Motorbiking became a passion for Kore in the 1980s. For several years, Kore and Lil often jumped on the Harley and headed down the road for an ice cream! Kore rode until the age of 86. Kore and Lil retired from farming and moved to Bawlf in 1991. They joined the Bawlf Seniors’ Club, where Kore regularly played snooker. In 2012, they moved to Providence Place in Daysland. Lil passed away in 2013, and Kore continued to live in Daysland. He passed away peacefully, with Brenda by his side, on November 12, 2022, at the age of 99 years. Left to cherish his memory are his daughter Brenda; sister-in-law Ella Thompson; numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family in Norway; special friends Madeline Blumhagen, Jan Proctor, and Lynn Horbasenko; and special great-great-nephew Kore Smith (a.k.a. Little Kore). Kore was predeceased by his wife Lil; his son Calvin; his sister Ragnhild Olsen; and his parents Herman and Margit Bohmer. The family expresses their heartfelt gratitude to the staff of Providence Place and the Daysland Hospital for the compassionate care they provided Kore.

Martha Louise Meyer

December 4, 1938 ~ November 10, 2022 It is with great sadness we announce that Martha Louise Meyer passed away on Thursday, November 10, 2022 at the age of 83. Martha will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Valerie; daughter-inlaw Janelle; grandson Luka; sister Iris (Len); brothers Louis, Dennis (Linda), and Bruce (Dan); and numerous nieces, nephews, and friends. She was predeceased by her husband George in 2020 and missed him dearly. Martha was born in Fort Vermilion, Alberta and was the first child of Fred and Kathleen Batt. She grew up in the small farming community of Rocky Lane, on her parents’ farm. She attended school at the one-room school house across the road, Batt School. When Martha completed grade eight, she left home so she could continue on in school as Batt School only went up to grade eight. She moved to Sexsmith, Alberta, and completed Grades 9, 10, and 11. Her next move was to Peace River, where she attended Grade 12. Once she completed school, she moved to Edmonton, where she enrolled at McTavish Business College, and then went on to work at an insurance office in Edmonton. During a trip home for Christmas, Martha was introduced to George Meyer (the new teacher at Batt School). They began visiting and writing, and soon George presented her with a ring. They married in July 1962, in Rocky Lane. A year later, their daughter Valerie was born. Martha worked as a school secretary at Rocky Lane School until 1979, when the Meyer family moved to Bawlf. Two years later, Martha and George built their dream home in Camrose, but continued commuting to Bawlf for work. Eventually, Martha became the school secretary at Bawlf and continued working there until she retired. Martha had so many talents and was always busy doing something. She spent many hours sewing clothing, doll clothes, aprons, and quilts. She also made Petit Point jewelry and completed numerous pictures in Petit Point. She made beautiful knitted afghans, scarfs, and wool jackets, and she seemed to know how to fix just about anything. Martha was an incredible baker and always had a neat way of making anything she made just a little more special. Martha made the best shortbread cookies and the best Christmas pudding … and that was just the tip of the iceberg. All of her cakes, pies, cookies, or desserts had a little decoration or special design cut into the crust. That was Martha’s way. If Martha and George weren’t busy enough with work and antique shows, they also started selling baking at the Camrose Farmers’ Market. Martha loved music, especially country music. She loved attending BVJ with George every year until they could go no longer. With her love of music also came her love of ballroom dancing and square dancing … and she had a great dance partner. Martha was all about family and loved spending time with loved ones over a nice supper, card game, or a cup of coffee. Many phone calls started with, “I was just thinking”, and by time the conversation was over, she had a plan and it would definitely happen. Martha had very special relationships with her sister Iris, sister-in-law Shirley, and friend Myrt Hooper. Whether it involved crafting, shopping, or card games with the husbands, Martha spoke fondly of the times she spent with them. She loved the phone calls she received from Louis and Dennis on Sunday morning; was always so excited when Bruce and Dan came for a visit; and cherished the time she spent with Iris, having coffee, talking, and working on a puzzle. Martha’s pride and joy was her grandson Luka, or “Grandma’s boy” as he was often called. Whether they were playing Yahtzee, painting fingernails, creating a hairstyle, or just watching TV together, they had a connection like no other. Her phone calls will forever be missed. In addition to everything else, Martha was an amazing mom who put family at the top of the list. She was always just a phone call or a short drive away and could pretty much answer or solve anything. She made occasions like Christmas and birthdays extra special by cooking a favourite meal or with unique and thoughtful gifts. She will be dearly missed by her daughter Val. They spent many evenings talking, putting puzzles together, having tea, or going for drives. Janelle, Val, and Luka will always remember what they call “Martha-isms” or funny things Martha would say, but strangely made sense. A private family service was held. Martha’s family would like to thank the staff at Bethany Meadows for everything they did and do on a daily basis. Martha loved flowers, but in lieu of flowers, she would want you to buy a puzzle or game and spend time with your family. Or she’d want you to go out for a really nice supper together (probably Chinese food), because Martha was all about family and traditions.

Mary Eleanor Finley

Mary was born on January 26, 1928, at Mowbray, MB, to Hank and Annie Lone, the tenth of eleven children. She passed away peacefully on November 13, 2022, at the age of 94. Left to cherish her memory is her loving family, daughters Marilyn Bittorf, Judy (Miles) Christianson and Gail Finley; grandchildren Steven Bittorf, Darren (Dawn) Bittorf, Lisa (Kurt) McGregor, Kerri Paterson, Joshua (Alicia) Finley, and Megan (Daniel) Mantey; and greatgrandchildren Brandon Tucker, Emma Bittorf, Makenna and Addison McGregor, Kaitlyn and Spencer Paterson, Kayne, Tristyn, Jax and Kruz Finley, and Zachary, Mikayla and Reid Mantey. Mary is also survived by one sister Doris Nield of Virden, MB; sisterin-law Audrey Lone of Morden, MB; and brother-in-law Doug Dodds of Souris, MB; and many other relatives and friends. She was predeceased by her husband Alvin, son Lyle, daughter Diane, seven brothers, two sisters, nine sisters-in law and four brothers-in-law. Mom was always there for us and taught us the value of maintaining family ties. She grew up in a large family of eleven kids and, being the second youngest, learned a lot about family, homemaking, and caring for others. Mom would do anything for anybody. She was the ultimate volunteer and loved what she called “the camaraderie” of the people with whom she volunteered. If any of her friends called her to go for coffee, it didn’t matter if she was washing clothes, baking or anything else, she dropped what she was doing and went. Her friends were so important to her. Both Mom and Dad spent hundreds of hours volunteering, whether it was chaperoning teen dances (to the chagrin of those of us attending those dances!), flipping burgers at the Moose booth at the Camrose Fair, bingos, Big Valley Jamboree, Legion activities, breakfasts – just wherever they were needed. In 2020, Mom reached a monumental achievement and in recognition of her 50 years of dedication to the Women of the Moose; she was honored with a Life Membership Certificate. Their involvement in the Legion was also important to both of them as Dad served in the Navy as a young man and was so proud of the veterans. Mom was also a loyal supporter and volunteer at Camrose United Church. Mom continued to donate regularly to the church, long after her mobility issues made it a challenge to attend. She met so many longtime friends during her volunteer days. Mom and Dad were childhood friends growing up, and eventually they married on August 23, 1947. Life wasn’t always easy, but they made a great life for themselves and our family over the years. Mom and Dad had a wonderful and long retirement, spending many years in Mesa, Arizona, travelling extensively, camping, and enjoying watching their grandchildren and great-grandchildren grow and flourish. When living in their own home became too much for them, they moved to Brookside, and ultimately to Rosealta Lodge in Camrose in 2015, where Dad passed away in 2016, and Mom lived until her passing. She made great friends there among the residents and staff. She was a wonderful Mother, and we will miss her very much. A Celebration of Life for family and friends will be held in the spring of 2023. If family and friends so desire, memorial donations in Mary Finley’s memory may be made to the Alberta Cancer Foundation or Camrose United Church.

Kodiaks looking ahead Continued from page 29

“Everybody has to contribute. Everybody needs to do a job and that is the same with life. If you wait for somebody else to do it, it is likely not going to get done.” Cooper added that being in organized sports has also opened doors for him that may not have otherwise been available, such as having his post secondary education looked after and being able to travel to go to school and meet new people. “Even if you don’t make

it to the pros, you are still getting the experience and lessons you get from coaches and you get to meet a lot of people along the way. There are also career opportunities that can come of being in organized sports.” These three young men epitomize what hard work, dedication, passion and service to your community can do and are just beginning to reap their just rewards as they move forward in their academic and sport playing careers towards bright futures.

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.

THE MIRACLE PRAYER Dear heart of Jesus, In the past I have asked many favours. This time, I ask this special one (mention favour). Take it, dear heart of Jesus, and place it within your heart where your father sees it. Then in His merciful eyes, it will become your own favour, not mine. Amen. Say this prayer three times for three days and your favour will be granted. Never been known to fail. Must promise publication. CV

PETS

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.

Starting on December 5, the labs at the Covenant Health St. Mary’s Hospital Camrose, will shift their focus to the needs of emergency, inpatient and ambulatory patients only. All Albertans can continue to access lab services at their local community laboratory sites. This change is being implemented only in areas where community lab collection sites are already operating. In most cases, the nearest community site is within two kilometres of an acute care centre. This is one step towards the larger transition of community lab services from Alberta Precision Laboratories (APL) to DynaLIFE Medical Laboratories. By transitioning community lab services to DynaLIFE, APL may be better able to maintain lab quality and provide a more efficient, effective and sustainable laboratory system that supports Alberta’s ever-growing demand for lab testing. As clients are currently able to book appointments 90 days in advance, clients looking to schedule an appointment in a hospital facility to take place after December 5 will no longer see appointments available. Walk-in patients who arrive at a hospital lab after that date will be re-directed to a nearby community lab site. Hospital laboratories will continue to serve immunocompromised patients by physician or clinic referral only. APL is a wholly owned subsidiary of AHS, delivering high-quality, responsive diagnostic lab services to Albertans across our health care system. Alberta Health Services is the provincial health authority responsible for planning and delivering health supports.

The rewards of being a

Booster Carrier

Camrose Women’s Shelter Society operates a 22-bed facility that offers services in support of women and children requiring emergency shelter due to domestic violence, crisis situations or homelessness. We are currently recruiting for the following position:

go beyond enjoyingg earning personal spending money... Since The Camrose Booster first started publishing the community’s favourite newspaper back in 1952, we’ve relied on carriers to look after delivering our publications and flyers for our valued customers. It’s a job that has been a wonderful first job, stepping stone, interim employment or retirement hobby for countless people. Hundreds of families in the past 70 years have become “team carriers” with the objective of saving money for a family vacation, major purchase, college, university or other education.

Carriers are required to deliver The Booster and inserts on Tuesdays. We will deliver these to a drop-off point on your route or you may pick them up at our office. Minimum age is 12 years; approximately half of our routes are delivered by adults.

Reasons to Consider Joining our Team: 1. Spending money

You are paid CASH, immediately following the completion of your route, or whenever convenient for the carrier.

2. Great way to learn responsibility

Parents of carriers from years gone by routinely report lessons learned from having a scheduled carrier route were the basis or foundation for their child’s other successes in life’s path.

3. Get paid while you get exercise and fresh air

This is the reason we are attracting a growing number of adults (many age 50-plus!) to do their own route. Over half our routes are delivered by adult carriers.

4. Convenient hours

After school delivery of The Booster on Tuesday afternoons seems to work for most families. Adult carriers may pick up Boosters at our shop by 1:00 p.m. on Tuesdays. Routes are to be completed by 7:00 p.m.

5. We offer a route that is close to your home

We make it easy for you to access your papers so your route can be quickly completed. Papers may also be picked up at the Booster office if you wish.

6. We do all of the interleaving of flyers for you!

Your job is simply to provide thorough and ultra-reliable delivery. We do the rest!

Please pick up an application form at our offi ce and join the Home Team today! 4925-48 Street, Camrose, AB T4V 1L7 Phone 780-672-3142 Email Fowler.Kirby@gmail.com

BRCF grant for Food Bank greatly needed By Lori Larsen

The Battle River Community Foundation awarded a $1,050 grant to the Camrose Neighbor Aid Center for the Camrose Food Bank. This grant is from income earned by the Andreassen Family Fund, a Donor Advised Endowment Fund type, which allows donors to make annual granting recommendations to the Foundation. “Our work would not be possible without the generosity and trust of our donors,” commented Camrose Neighbor Aid Center program director Jo-Anne Tweed. “We are reminded daily that men, women and children are struggling to access enough food and are grateful to those who give to our work.” The Camrose Food Bank working under the umbrella of Neighbor Aid provides assistance for food security to residents in Camrose and Camrose County. “Neighbor Aid thanks all our donors for giving from your hearts to ensure our most vulnerable populations have their needs met.” The Battle River Community Foundation exists to support organizations in East Central Alberta which

Central Agencies Realty Home of the Week

Five-bedroom home

I hit a turkey and it flew over my car and landed on the car behind me. It was a policeman and he pulled me over and gave me a ticket for flipping him the bird. My sister said there’s no way I could build a car out of spaghetti. You should’ve seen her face when I drove pasta. I wanted to lose 10 pounds this year. Only 13 to go. I accidentally combined “All good” and “No worries,” and said “All worries.” It’s the most honest thing I’ve said all year. Adulting means growing hair in places you are not supposed to, and losing hair in places you don’t want to. What do I want for Christmas? Hmmm, lately I’ve been really into groceries and gas. Utilities are cool, too. Stuff like that. When I was little, I don’t know what I thought being a grown up would be like, but I had no idea there would be so much coffee and swearing. Don’t use a big word when a singularly loquacious and diminutive linguistic expression will satisfactorily accomplish the contemporary necessity. Don’t you hate it when you start your car in the morning and the music is blasting. It’s like, “Whoooaa there big fella, I’m not the same person I was last night!”

By Lori Larsen

This well-maintained five-bedroom home, located in a quiet cul de sac, is ready for you and your family to move right in and enjoy the convenience of its great location. Schools, parks and recreational facilities within close proximity make this the perfect place to settle your family. A colourful front door is a welcoming touch as you enter the home. Hardwood floors extend through the living room into the dining area adjacent to the kitchen. A large window in the living room lets in tons of natural sunlight. The kitchen features refaced cabinets and a convenient serve-through to the dining room so the host can always be part of the conversation. Three good-sized bedrooms and a four-piece main bathroom on the main level make it easy to keep young children close, while two more bedrooms and a three-piece bathroom on the lower level would be perfect for older children.

Enjoy family movie night or some fun games in the large family room on the lower level, or let the older children have a space of their own, where they can hang out with their friends. The backyard offers plenty of room for the children to burn off energy while parents sit and relax on the stone patio. You will absolutely love the 24’ x 24’ garage with back alley access for keeping your vehicles warm and clear in the winter. Vinyl windows, new shingles and a new furnace are great assets, and at this price, you can easily make a few updates of your own. Take immediate possession of this move-in ready home, located at 5 Montrose Avenue and priced at $299,900.

At my age, the only pole dancing I do is holding on to the safety bar in the bathtub. I accidentally drank holy water with my laxative. I’m about to start a religious movement. The only sound in the world louder than a Dad Sneeze is the sound of Mom gasping for no reason while he drives. In a packed elevator, everyone is silent. My stomach: “I will now demonstrate the mating call of a whale.” I finally did it! I bought a new pair of shoes with memory foam insoles. No more forgetting why I walked into the kitchen. Me: Our kids are finally at an age when we can sleep in on weekends. Youth Sports: Let me stop you right there. Everyone was seated around the table as the food was being served. When little Johnny received his plate, he started eating straight away. “Johnny, wait until we’ve said our prayer,” his mother reminded him. “I don’t have to,” the little boy replied. “Of course you do,” his mother insisted. “We say a prayer before eating at our house.”

Matthew Mayer

“That’s at our house,” Johnny explained, “But this is Grandma’s house and she knows how to cook.”
