Spotting animals amidst a horizon of bare trees isn’t as easy as it looks. Most of the animals blend seamlessly into the scenery.



November 1 brought perfect conditions for opening day of general season hunting. Cooler weather gets the animals moving, and a little snow on the ground makes tracking easier. Hunters, along with all recreational users, are reminded they must get permission before going onto any private land. For full details, see inside story on page 6.

Since then, Vision has returned $62.8 million in profit shares, including $8415 to Marie and Dwayne. Last year, Marie talked Dwayne into spending their share on a one-week resort holiday.

At the Fall Senior Symposium Banquet, 4-H Alberta revealed its future leaders. Thirteen new Ambassadors were welcomed to the team, and the Premier’s Award’s prestigious recipient was announced. Vanessa Hadwin, a 19-year-old from Consort won the Premier’s award. Her journey with 4-H began as a quest for fun, but it quickly turned into a learning curve. Her experiences in the program have taught her valuable life skills–leadership, motivation, determination and the essence of volunteering. As a nursing student, she utilizes these skills, proving the transformative impact of the 4-H program. “I became an ambassador to meet new people, explore new projects, travel to new parts of Alberta and to share my love of 4-H. I have experienced all that and more. Oftentimes I would attend an event as a teacher of a skill, be it public speaking, judging, grooming or showmanship, and I would end up learning from those in attendance. I am excited to continue with the 4-H Alberta Ambassador team and through my role as the Premier’s Award Recipient, I hope to positively impact my fellow members and my community, with the added benefit of my own growth, goodwill and gratitude,” said Vanessa. “I will love to travel Alberta to promote and celebrate 4-H, to create a network of contacts throughout the 4-H program and the provincial government, and to continue to inspire 4-Her’s to Learn To Do By Doing.” Her dedication to 4-H was also recognized with the Ted Youck Outstanding Achievement and Leadership in 4-H Alberta Award. Donated by 4-H advocate Youck, this accolade will accompany the Premier’s Award for a decade. The Premier’s Award stands as the pinnacle of recognition for a 4-H Alberta member. Established by E.C. Manning, Premier of Alberta in 1964, this award seeks the best of 4-H. The chosen member not only holds the title, but represents 4-H Alberta at various events throughout the year and has the honour to engage with Alberta’s Premier and the Minister of Agriculture and Irrigation.

Making rural popular again By Murray Green

The Alberta Centre for Sustainable Rural Communities (ACSRC) held a twoday conference to develop ideas into a thriving co-op in your rural community. It was held at the University of Alberta Augustana Campus on October 25 and 26. “The point of the conference was to introduce community leaders, rural municipalities, rural councillors to more innovative ways such as going back to co-ops to spur on economic development to create good jobs in rural communities to maintain good services, critical infrastructure,” said Clark Banack, director for ACSRC. Over the past year, the ACSRC has been exploring innovative uses of the cooperative model and their potential role in modern rural economic and community development. “Some of the success stories are not well known, so this was a way to introduce these stories to people to get excited about different ways

to do this work going forward in their own communities,” said Clark. The Re-imagining Rural Economic Development Conference, hosted by the ACSRC and with project support from the Alberta Real Estate Foundation, represents the culmination of this work and highlighted ways that an old idea can breathe new life into rural communities across the province. “The networks that have been created is wonderful. We had a number of co-op developers here that were able to connect with people. It wasn’t just hearing ideas and not knowing what to do with them. They are now connected to developers that can help them take the next step, which was a big part of what we were trying to do,” added Clark. Aimed at rural community leaders, councillors, economic development and planning officers and rural residents who care deeply about the future of their communities, this event

will feature a collection of speakers including rural entrepreneurs, co-operative developers, and academics from across North America to showcase how innovative uses of the co-operative model can drive sustainable rural economic development. “You are not going to completely stop urbanization and turn everything around. We won’t have populations in the rural areas like we did in the 1950s. But, what we are trying to do is encourage communities to see different ways in how they can bring up to four more families into their communities,” suggested Clark. During this two-day conference participants were introduced to innovative uses of the co-operative model across a wide range of areas including green energy, commercial real estate, large and

small scale agriculture, community capital investment, housing and day cares. “A speaker mentioned that if you bring two more families into your community, that can be all that it takes to stop the conversation of the school closing and keep the community intact,” Clark said. Speakers talked about how consumer, producer, and marketing co-ops, as well as worker-owned businesses and new generation agricultural co-ops, are generating positive economic growth and enhancing service delivery in rural communities. “It is also about local groups coming up with their own way to attract businesses that employ three or four people in their community. Part of economic development is bringing in big cor-

porations, but there are only so many big organizations to go around. What can they do to spur on economic activity? That is what this was about,” explained Clark. They heard from successful rural co-operative founders about the opportunities and challenges co-ops can present and the lessons learned along the way. “We hope people go home with some new ideas, get some people together and talk more about what fits for their community to start something that will make a difference,” he said. People networked and connected with co-op founders and developers who could help guide your local group and develop your idea into a thriving co-op in your rural community.

The secret sauce behind the Camrose Chamber of Commerce 2023 Small Business of the Year Award winner…

On Track Kuntz & Company Inc.

A Camrose owned and operated business with clients around the globe Romonda Kuntz, who founded On TrackRomonda Kuntz Inc. in October 1996 on a “shoe-string budget, a rented office space with a single wooden desk, and with a line of credit at a local bank that she needed far more than they needed her” will tell you that there the so-called secret isn’t really a secret at all. It’s perseverance, vision and ultimately doing whatever it takes to understand and fill the need of a customer, no matter how unique or unusual. “I quickly learned to ‘walk on water’ for my customers, if that is what it took to get them on the road, or keep my industry clients, or their fleets operating.” Romonda set up shop back in 1996 at her husband James’ company (Kuntz & Kramer Services), located at the Junction of Highway 13 & 21. She bought and sold used medium and heavy duty trucks. During the period when Romonda represented the Hino line of trucks, she grew the business to become number three for sales in Canada. (Dealers in Toronto and Vancouver earned the top two spots in revenue.) In 1998, the company grew with the addition of a sales trailer and commenced a move into the industrial end of Camrose. “Honestly, we didn’t even have a bathroom at this site”, recalls Romonda, with a bit of a chuckle. In 2001, Romonda moved back to the Junction location and James, at this point, became a part owner of her company. A win-win business partnership was formed. Step one was a corporate name change to On Track Kuntz & Company Inc. As the years went by, the business model adapted. The staffing level grew to its current twentythree team members, many of whom are highly trained diesel specialists. A full nine team members

Small businesses are strength of economy By Jackie Lovely, MLA

Camrose Constituency

Small businesses are

the cornerstone of our

economy. Not only do small



up about 96 per cent of

all businesses in Alberta, but they also contribute over $100 billion annually

towards our province’s GDP, while employing hundreds of thousands of everyday people. Small businesses also

play critical roles in our communities by doing things

like sponsoring hockey teams, donating to schools, and employing youth and seniors. This






government celebrated Small Business Week. During this time, we highlighted and celebrated the creativity

and dedication of small business owners and workers

across the province–as well as our commitment to supporting them with resources like the web portal Biz

Connect, which helps connect small businesses with supports, associations, coaching, mentoring and more.

More than anything, however, Small Business Week

is a time to shop local and support entrepreneurs in our

communities. Alberta is back and stronger than ever, thanks in large part to Alberta’s small business owners

and operators who have helped drive economic growth

by creating jobs and stimulating local economies. Small Business Week is a time to honour the contributions of these unsung heroes, who aren’t just the backbone

of our economy, but our dreamers, innovators, friends,

neighbours and family members. From farms to tech startups, mom-and-pop shops to innovative industries,

Alberta’s small business landscape and continuous growth is a testament to the resilience and determination of our people.

In both rural and urban communities, small

businesses embody the spirit of pride, passion and

General season now open for hunting in Alberta By Lori Larsen

November 1 marked the opening of general seasons hunting in most of Alberta Wildlife Management Units (WMU). According to the 2023 Alberta Guide to Hunting Regulations, general seasons are those where either a firearm, cross-bow or a bow and arrow may be used. With the general season now open, hunters will be scoping out the countryside for wildlife that can be legally harvested in hopes of providing some sustenance and enjoying activities in the great outdoors. For the most part hunters have access to public lands (owned by the Crown); however, most land in and around Camrose County is privately owned, posing more restrictions and regulations. Trespassing on private property remains one of the greatest concerns of many county residents. Amendments to the Petty Trespass Act in 2004, state that all recreational land users must first get permission to access any private or leased public land. According to Section 38 of the Wildlife Act no person shall hunt wildlife or discharge firearms on or over occupied lands, or enter onto such lands for the purpose of doing so without the consent of the owner or occupant. The Wildlife Act defines “occupied lands” as follows: (a) privately owned

lands under cultivation or enclosed by a fence of any kind and not exceeding one section in area on which the owner or occupant actually resides, and (b) any other privately owned land that is within 1.6 km (one mile) of the section referred to in clause (a) and that is owned or leased by the same owner or occupant. Hunters also need to be aware that private lands do not need to be posted with signs to receive protection under Section 38 of the Wildlife Act. When permission is obtained hunters are reminded to use the utmost respect by leaving all gates as they were found upon entering the land, not damaging facilities or property, not disturbing livestock, removing all garbage and items brought onto the land upon departure and establishing a respectful relationship with the landowner. For decades hunting has been an important part of Albertans’ way of life. Aiming to ensure the management of wildlife, while providing Albertans with the opportunity to still enjoy this recreational activity, the province of Alberta supports conservation and hunting through regulatory initiatives, laws and licensing. According to the 202223 Alberta Hunting report, over $19.3 million in revenue was collected from the sale of hunting licences, hunting draw applications and WiN cards with 45 per

cent of the licence revenue going directly to the Alberta Conservation Association levy in support of programming. Licence administration fees accounted for 17.3 per cent of the revenue while 36.4 per cent of licence revenue is received by the Government of Alberta, 70 per cent of which goes to general revenue and 30 per cent goes towards the delivery of wildlife management programs. Statistics provided in the 2022-23 Alberta Hunting Report, indicated that in 2022 a total of 173,250 hunters hunted in Alberta, of which 5,704 were nonresidents (approximately three per cent) and 6,898 were non-resident aliens (approximately four per cent). Of the total number of hunters 86 per cent of them were firearm hunters and 14 per cent archery hunters. Interest in hunting has been increasing every year. With an increased number of people hunting comes an increased risk of people hunting illegally putting pressure on Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Services to ensure that everyone is complying with the laws and regulations and protecting the rights of landowners. For more information and links to resources on hunting regulations in Alberta visit the government of Alberta website at huntingregs/.

entrepreneurship that defines Alberta. Our province is no stranger to hardship. Alberta’s small businesses

have weathered many storms. But they continuously manage to innovate, adapt, and thrive with the strength

and resilience Alberta is known for, and our government celebrates and supports them.

Small Business Week may be over for this year,

but that doesn’t mean we can’t continue to show

small businesses our unwavering support. As 2023

draws to a close, let’s remember to shop local, dine at neighbourhood restaurants, and explore the unique and innovative products and services offered by the small businesses in our communities. By doing so, we can support our friends and neighbours, and our economy.

Thank you to all our small business owners, workers,

and entrepreneurs–Alberta would not be what it is today without you!

Lest we forget

Poppy campaign supports local By Murray Green

Every year, on the last Friday of October (October 27) to November 11, millions of Canadians wear a poppy as a visual pledge to honour Canada’s veterans and remember those who sacrificed for the freedoms we enjoy today. This year marks the 102nd anniversary of the poppy. While the poppy is distributed freely to all who wish to wear one, the Legion gratefully accepts donations to the Poppy Fund. The Poppy Campaign is very much a local initiative, conducted by Legion branches in cities, towns and communities across the country including Camrose. Donations collected during the Poppy Campaign are held in Trust at the branch level to directly support veterans

and their families within their community and to help ensure Canadians never forget. This show of support and display of remembrance would not be possible without the efforts of thousands of Legionnaires and cadets who volunteer to distribute poppies to the community through schools, community organizations and local businesses. In 2017, the Poppy Campaign in which 19.8 million Poppies were distributed and more than $16 million was disbursed to support veterans and their families as well as bursaries for students. If you are looking for poppies contact the Camrose branch of the Royal Canadian Legion until November 11 at 780-672-3325.



Dan Cole, past president of the Rotary Club of Camrose, left, and current secretary Kim Boyco, recently met with representatives of Cargill to accept a generous donation of $4,000 to the Imagination Library. This donation will cover the cost of shipping monthly books to 87 children in Camrose and Camrose County for the next year, which the families receive free of charge. Rotary Camrose has been operating the Imagination Library program for this area since early 2022 and currently has over 300 children registered in the program.

Seek help for eating disorders

You could win a photograph of your farm! If this is your farm,

By Murray Green

A person dies as a direct result of their eating disorder every 62 minutes. That’s about how long it would take you to drive the full loop of the Anthony Henday in Edmonton one and a quarter times. Eating disorders affect approximately 2.7 million Canadians. Unfortunately, much of the time eating disorders go under-recognized, under-diagnosed and under-treated. Eating Disorders Awareness aims to increase knowledge surrounding eating disorders and the support available in the province and across the country. It is a time for connection and community, allowing people to come together and learn at the same time. “Eating Disorders can affect anyone. They do not discriminate based upon age, race, gender identity, sexuality, socioeconomic status or weight. This year, we are exploring these topics, discussing with experts and having genuine conversations with people,” said Eating Disorder Support Network of Alberta (EDSNA) acting executive director Angie Mellen. “We are seeing that eating disorders are increasingly being recognized as a mental illness and not an issue of vanity. We are advocating for more education and support services for youth and families which are currently lacking in Alberta,” added Marlies van Dijk, executive director of the Silver Linings Foundation. Lifted Up is a virtual gathering for Christians to come together in prayer in support of Eating Disorders Awareness. The Eating Disorder Support Network of Alberta (EDSNA) is a non-profit organization and a registered charity dedicated to providing meaningful support to those affected–directly and indirectly–by eating disorders. The grassroots organization was founded by Moyra McAllister, whose daughter developed an eating disorder. Moyra’s personal experience inspired a desire to support others. EDSNA provides information, guidance, a provincial voice, a community hub and most of all, support. Contact or by phone at 780729-3376 (feel free to text or call) to receive more information on virtual presentations.
