Lougheed art exhibit welcomes back Maurer By Lori Larsen

‘Tis the season(s) So. It’s after Halloween and after Remembrance Day. ‘Tis the season to get ready to bundle up, hunker down and face winter. ‘Tis the season to prepare and then host holiday concerts and parties. ‘Tis the season for a big retail push on the way to Christmas and New Year’s. And lest we forget, ‘tis the season for local non-profit organizations to host fundraising events and campaigns. ‘Tis the season to give, to donate, to volunteer. *** I remember ‘tis the season for local not-for-profit fundraising because I received an e-mail from a board member of a local nonprofit society. Here’s what the board member said: “I am writing to you with a thought that came up at a recent board committee meeting…at this meeting, we began to plan for our target fundraising campaign of the year. As we sat around the board table, we chatted about all the organizations in our community, all the important work that everyone is doing, the common need for funds and how best to approach our community members for a donation. We are approaching the time of year when many folks in our generous community are being approached for donations regularly. “Your name and column came up as a means to ask people if they are thinking about donating at this time of the year. If money is what they can donate, that is always accepted graciously. But we also have many skilled and talented people, businesses and corporations in Camrose that may be able to offer a service to a notfor-profit organization. I know it takes courage to call up a not-forprofit in our community and offer a skill you may have, but in our experience, no one is turned away and we all benefit!” *** Yes, we all benefit, directly or indirectly, when people donate money and volunteer their time and skills to non-profit groups that do good in the community. Their money, time and skills make our community a better place for all of us to live. And you know who might benefit the most? Those who give! Research tells us that giving has benefits for the person who gives. Generous people are happier. A National Institute of Health study showed that when people give to charity, it activates regions of the brain associated with pleasure, connection and the “warm glow” effect. When we give to others–whether it’s through a kind act or donating money–that act of giving triggers the release of “feel good” hormones. These hormones lower stress, anxiety and depression. They increase warmth, trust and pleasure. People who give to others sleep more soundly. They are healthier and live longer. A Harvard Business School study showed that giving money to someone else lifted the givers’ happiness more than spending the money on themselves. *** I once heard a talk by a volunteer for a local non-profit. She said that at first, she thought the main benefit of her volunteer work was to the people who received help. And they did indeed benefit, from the service that was provided and from the social contact. But eventually, she came to believe the greatest benefit was to herself. The days she volunteered were a highlight. She always felt good for hours or days later. *** I’m grateful to the volunteer board member who sent me the email and to the organization she represents. It’s reminded me–and now I’m reminding you–that a gift to others, whether money or time or skill, is also a gift to ourselves. Unintended happy consequences! ‘Tis the season. *** I’d love to hear from you. If you have comments about this column or suggestions for future topics, send an email to I’ll happily reply within two business days.

For those who may not have had the opportunity to enjoy the work of local artist Bonnie Maurer in June/ July and August, she will be returning for her second exhibit this year, curated by Jane Cherry, at the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre from November 20 until January 4. “I’m thrilled to be having my second show this year at this incredible venue,” remarked Bonnie who has been creating stunning pieces of art since 2013, when through divine intervention, her gift to the world began. “I had my first show ever during the summer months, and I entered that

but provides artists with an opportunity to showcase their work and receive much deserved recognition. “My first show taught me how important it is to share my work with others,” admitted Bonnie. “Whether viewers just do a quick run through, or they stop and actually enter the experience. It was such a satisfying thing for me and was a great awareness opportunity.” Aside from the opportunity to showcase her work, having the exhibition was also a way for Bonnie to openly express her own thoughts and feelings while invoking reflection in the viewers. “Art is a form of communication and I hope to inspire and engage viewers

work progresses a relationship with the painting develops and, indeed, with the person or animal I’m trying to portray. “This kind of painting takes me on an intimate journey as I move past shape and form to muscle and finer lines which define the character, to the strokes and mark making that capture the emotions and make it come alive on the page.” Having seen the amazing work that Bonnie has done with portraiture, I can assure the viewers will be in absolute awe of the realism as they are pulled into the imaginative world of the subject. “The story evolves and changes in each portrait as it is being created, but always

show with quite a bit of fear and trepidation.” But friends and family who had the privilege of seeing Bonnie’s work kept prompting her to share it with others. “Jane Cherry (Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre exhibit curator) particularly, and the staff at the Lougheed Centre were so gracious, helpful and encouraging, that it made it a very comfortable experience,” said Bonnie. “This is a fabulous venue. It is a beautiful, open, brightly lit area for artists to display their work. And the best part is, it is all hung for you professionally.” The Performing Arts Centre, ChristensonNelson Gallery, has been the home to incredible exhibits over the past few years, featuring many local artists whose work can be enjoyed by anyone for free, during open hours and any guest of Lougheed performances before, between and after shows. The exhibits not only provide a wonderful opportunity for residents and visitors to partake in professionally hung exhibitions

with my art. As the viewer journeys into their own story and meanings of the work, it brings me a sense of accomplishment and fulfilled purpose to hear their perspectives.” Comments heard by Bonnie during her Meet and Greet and those left on the comment sheet available at the show included: “heavenly”, “so realistic”, “so peaceful”, “so impressive”, “inspirational”, “beautiful work”, “prolific and prophetic”, “what an amazing gift”, “you bless me”. “With this kind of interaction, it caused me to pause and think about and value my own work differently. I am especially grateful for artists who are willing to share their insights. All in all it was a very positive and blessed experience.” Bonnie’s first exhibition featured a variety of waterscapes, while this show will feature 36 paintings and drawings focusing on portraiture done in soft pastels, graphite and charcoal. “Portraiture requires a keen eye for detail,” explained Bonnie. “It is interesting to me that as the

in the end, I have a greater emotional connection by far, than when I started, to the person or the animal and even to the painting. God’s creatures are incredible and to capture all that lies within is not even a possibility. But it is certainly a joyful journey to try.” Currently Bonnie is working on landscape commissioned pieces and welcomes anyone interested in commissioning a piece or anyone wishing to view her private gallery, to contact her at bonniemaurer@ to arrange an appointment. “Interestingly enough I consider myself to be a pastel landscape artist,” smiled Bonnie hinting that show is still to come. Come out to the Performing Arts Centre on November 23 for an opportunity to speak with Bonnie during a Meet and Greet from 5 until 7 p.m. If you are interested in having your art exhibited or you know of an artist that you would like to see exhibited contact the Lougheed Performing Arts curator Jane Cherry at jcherry62@

Protect people and property important to you…

The Camrose Booster offers this apology…

We take full responsibility for the photo that was published in the Electro Tel advertisement in the November 7, 2023, edition of The Camrose Booster. Electro Tel management had counted on our team to create an advertisement that recognized the importance of Remembrance Day and commemorated the tremendous sacrifice, significant number of lives lost and heroic actions of former and present military personnel responsible for the freedom that we as Canadian’s collectively enjoy. In creating this advertising copy and design, we utilized one of the graphics arts services that we count on weekly for the composition of The Camrose Booster as well as our other publications. In this process we selected a wartime image for use as an attention-getter for the corporate heart-felt advertising tribute. HOWEVER, we did not pay sufficient attention to detail when choosing this photograph, which shows German soldiers in era-authentic battle gear. Choosing this particular image for publication is our error in entirety. We apologize to Electro Tel and Telus for any embarrassment this oversight has caused. We also offer this same apology to any of our twenty-one thousand-plus faithful readers for this unfortunate error. To each member of the community who reached out to us following the delivery of last week’s edition, thank you for expressing your comments and voicing your concern.

Hockey Vikings split with Thunder By Murray Green

A season of sports is under way at the University of Alberta, Augustana for the 2023-24 Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference season.

No scoring in the first period, but both teams collected two goals in the second and one each in third period to force overtime. Conrad Phillips and Jase Smalcel scored for the Vikings in the second, while Will McPhee netted the third period tally to force the extra time. Goalie Daniel Moody stopped 30 of 34 shots for the Vikings, while Augustana recorded 39 shots on goal.

Can anyone be a Philanthropist?


Phil h Philanthropy iis a marvelous l quality li 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. Leroy and Beth Kushnerick, philanthropists, have the spirit. They are shown in conversation with Kevin Gurr, Chairman of the Battle River Community Foundation. Kevin asked them, “Why have you chosen to give back to your community through the Battle River Community Foundation?”

Leroy replied, “Beth and I feel it is very important to give back to our community - a community that has given us so much. We were both raised in Camrose and blessed that we have been able to remain in this great community to work and raise our family.

we realize it, we are thankful so we want “to give back.” When taken literally giving back is often unlikely. The persons who have created all of our advantages are, for the most part, no longer among us. So, in truth, when we give, we more appropriately are “giving forward.” Our gifts are for a current or future need. In

Beth added, “We also appreciate that all funds are pooled together and invested to maximize returns, creating more together. The Battle River Community Foundation is very well managed and therefore we are also grateful knowing that the impact of our contribution will continue long into the future - supporting many generations to come.”

fact, when there is a dinner for community builders it is because the donor has been giving forward. Forward thinking, forward doing for a forward advantage. Why have a Builder’s Dinner? It is because the donors are “builders” for a better tomorrow. Improving our future is what builders do. In short, giving back is the “thank you” part of giving and giving forward is the “building” part. A gift to a community does both; and “community” is the operative word for a Community Foundation.

A very strong reason for giving is because it is such a joy to do so. We often give for the happiness that helping others provides. There is a warm satisfaction when one is able to take part in making things better. Lifting up, up-lifts ourselves. The act of giving can come with a variety of motives. Best is when the giver, gives to give. Sometimes, a person gives to get. Such a person is one who gives in search of a self-serving reward. One warm gift that I received was from an elderly lady who I knew struggled financially. She wanted to help. Her gnarled hand in, a crumpled two-dollar bill. She wished she could have given more. I tried to leave the money with her, but she insisted. Sometimes we measure generosity by the dollar value of a gift. Someone who donates $1,000,000 may be assumed to be excep-

contribute a looney or two at the check-out counter for their chosen cause. Most causes are worthy, but when a large corporation makes a donation–even when they express that the funds came from their customers–the presumed credit is for the corporation, but it is a corporate credit with other people’s money. The act of gifting is as old as humanity and it is the gentle part of being human. Humans wish to be included in a collective. They yearn for community. Humans want to be a part of a whole. Rare is the person who wants to live in isolation. Building is a characteristic of democratic practise. In dictatorial countries the concept of a volunteer doesn’t exist. In dictatorships the public is robbed of the joy of being a builder. An element of a democracy is that citizen’s sense of ownership. It means that we should look to ourselves often as opposed to asking governments to solve our reoccurring needs. The more we ask from governments, the more we bargain away our privilege of ownership.

Mize restores 1969 chick feed truck By Murray Green

Aaron Mize of Camrose owns a 1969 C30 Chevrolet truck. Not every Grade 11 relishes the idea of owning a one-ton grain truck. “I got the truck from a friend of the family near Camrose. The reason it is called the Chick Wagon is because it was originally bought to haul chicken feed. For the record I’m not a creep, I just wanted to keep the old name,” laughed Aaron. “It is a beautiful truck. The truck is quite intimidating to drive because it is a lot of truck. It’s not the easiest first vehicle to drive. The truck is fun and I wanted a one-ton because I can,” said Aaron. The truck has a 350 engine with a four-speed manual transmission. “I have rebuilt the carburetor, put in all new wiring because the back lights were not working and cleaned everything because it was parked on a farm. I want to leave the truck as original as I can including the grain box. I just want to replace the wood boards in the back. The farmer put sheets of plywood over the boards, so they need replacing. I just want to keep it running,” said Aaron. The Chevrolet C/K is a series of trucks that was manufactured by General Motors from the 1960 to 2002 model years. “I like this truck because it looks good and I like the body style. I’m considering starting a business around the truck, maybe hauling things for people, going to the dump, things like that. It has a working hoist, so hauling things is easy,” added


Murray Green, Camrose Booster Although this 1969 one ton truck doesn’t haul chicken feed anymore, Aaron Mize still uses this classic to carry goods around the city. He is the only Grade 11 student in the city that has his first vehicle as a former farm truck.

Aaron. Another idea he has is to join his brothers in starting a landscaping business. In the future he may add a nice decal or paint a logo on the door of the truck. “My brothers got this t-shirt for me for Christmas, so I might use that,” he said, referring to a picture of a chick driving his truck on his shirt. The truck was also used to haul firewood after the former owner retired from raising chickens. He is often seen driving the truck looking similar to a farmer as he drives around the city. Our family is moving to Manitoba, so I will be

leaving the truck behind and storing it for the winter. As the truck is right now, too many things could go wrong on that long of a trip. My goal is to return next summer and finish fixing it up so it can make the trip,” said Aaron. The truck has 69,000 original miles on it and first lived in Sedgewick. It still has the original tires on it. Aaron’s worry is the tires may not get him to his destination. With split rims on it, Aaron didn’t want to be left on the side of the road. “Mechanically, it probably could make the trip, but the tires with cracks in them could be a worry.”

Split rim wheels, also known as two-piece or threepiece wheels, have several advantages and disadvantages, depending on the context and the specific application. Split rim wheels are easier to repair than one-piece wheels. If a component of the wheel, such as the rim, gets damaged, you can often replace just that part rather than the entire wheel. They allow for greater customization options in terms of wheel width, offset and finish. In some cases, split rim wheels can be designed to be lighter than their one-piece counterparts. This reduction in weight can improve a vehicle’s performance and fuel efficiency. Split rims can be adjusted for different offsets, which can be important for certain vehicle modifications and performance enhancements. Split rim wheels are often used in offroad and heavy-duty applications. They are popular in vehicles like trucks and heavy machinery, as they allow for easier maintenance and repair of the wheel and tire assembly in rugged environments. Some split rim designs are more durable in specific applications, such as industrial or military vehicles, where they need to withstand extreme conditions.

Camrose Kodiaks suffer loss to Canucks in shootout By Murray Green

Camrose Kodiaks of the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL) suffered a heart-breaking 2-1 loss to the Calgary Canucks in a shoot out on November 2. Calgary opened the scoring on a power play in the first period. After a

scoreless middle frame, Kodiaks’ forward Owen Lansing notched his third of the season with a man advantage to force the deadlock. Camrose dominated the overtime period, but couldn’t find the back of the net. Goalie Charlie Zolin

stopped 21 of 22 shots he faced. Camrose recorded 32 shots on goal. The league leading Brooks Bandits beat the Kodiaks 4-1 on November 4. After no scoring in the first, Brooks sandwiched goals between the Camrose marker from Garrett Thom

(his seventh of the season). Brooks added two more goals in the third period, the last into an empty net. Goalie Zolin turned away 34 of 37 shots directed his way. Camrose recorded 13 shots on goal. The Kodiaks are at home against Drumheller

on November 16, Grande Prairie on November 19 (2 p.m.), Drayton Valley on November 24 and Calgary on November 26 (2 p.m.). Bear facts Camrose is in 12th place after 20 league games with 18 points and seven wins.

Trojans volley girls’ team second


s w e N

By Murray Green

The École Camrose Composite High School Trojans senior girls’ volleyball team placed second at their own tournament on November 4. “On Friday (the first day) we were not working together as a team, but once we hit the quarter-finals we really started to connect. On Saturday we played some of the best games we have all season,” said setter Janelle Martins. “We kept building on each game. We kept getting stronger with each game we played.” They defeated rival Our Lady of Mount Pleasant (OLMP) in the semifinals (25-23, 15-25, 15-11) to advance to the finals against John Paul II (Grande Prairie who won 25-16, 25-16). ÉCCHS also beat RF Staples in the first round of the playoffs. “Yes, playing our rivals was added motivation because we played them three times this season and they beat us all three times. We finally beat them in the third set and that felt really good for our team. We definitely played our best game so that was really good,” said Janelle, a Grade 12 student. “It is a special year for me, so I really want the team to do well. We placed first in the league, so we get to host zones. It is good to have our fans with us for zones.” In the first round, the Trojans lost to St. Paul, beat Ponoka, beat Morinville, lost to Bawlf and lost to John Paul II to place fourth in their pool. “Grande Prairie is one of the teams to beat should we both reach provincials. We played them earlier in the tournament and went three games with them. We didn’t play as well in the final, but it was still a good series,” shard Janelle. “We are going into zones with confidence. The only team that we went five sets with was HJ Cody and they (Sylvan Lake) will likely be our toughest competition. That was one of our first matches of the season, so we have gotten stronger since then too,” she added. “We have to work as a team and get our first contact done to be successful. Passing is one of our weaker spots. But, if we get our first contact down, our spirit and communicating is better. If we do that, I feel we will have a good chance.”

Our girls lost a close semifinal game against Wm. E. Hay, who they have split their previous two games with. To their credit, they regrouped and beat a tough team from Wetaskiwin to capture the bronze medal,” said athletic director Graeme Thain. “Our boys were seeded second in the tournament and won their semifinal match against Wm.

July 25, 1934 ~ November 2, 2023 Evelyn Cunningham of Camrose, formerly of Kelsey, peacefully passed away with family by her side on Thursday, November 2, 2023, at the age of 89. Evelyn was born July 25, 1934, at Wanham, Alberta, to Ole and Gena Wrolson. She was always very proud of her Norwegian heritage. By 5 years old she had sadly lost both her parents and, with her sister Doris, moved to Turner Valley to be raised by her older sister, Myrtle. Evelyn’s early schooling was in the Turner Valley – Longview area. At the age of 14 years, she moved to Edmonton and completed her schooling. Evelyn then moved to Leduc to live with her sister Doris and her family. In Leduc she started her career working at AGT as a telephone operator. She was quickly promoted to work at the head office of AGT in Edmonton. In 1960 Evelyn met George and they were married the following fall on October 28, 1961, in Kelsey. As a city girl she soon embraced life on the farm. They welcomed two girls in the years that followed: Shelley and Brenda. Evelyn took great joy in gardening, camping, fishing, cooking, baking and going with George to ball tournaments. Her greatest joys in life were her grandchildren and, in later years, her great-grandchildren, especially baking for them, having them for sleepovers and attending their sporting and school events. She was always their greatest cheerleader. George and Evelyn worked side by side on the farm until 1994 when they moved to Camrose. There she enjoyed yard work and visiting with all the neighbours. During their time in Camrose Evelyn enjoyed volunteering with the United Church and especially enjoyed the years volunteering with Meals on Wheels. Evelyn loved nothing more than having her family gathered at her home where she could cook for everyone and no one left hungry! She will forever live in the hearts of her family, friends and neighbours. Evelyn was predeceased by her parents; her brothers Art and Gerry; and sisters Myrtle Alexander and Doris Powell. Left to cherish her memory are her husband of 62 years George; children, Shelley (Phill) Murray and Brenda (Dave) Elder; five grandchildren, Scott and Eric Murray, Michael (India) and Kevin (Jenny) Noel, and Sarah (Gary) Plummer; great-grandchildren, Jack and Liam Plummer; brother-in-law Roy Cunningham; and numerous nieces and nephews. Special thank you to the wonderful staff at Seasons Memory Care. A Funeral Service will be held at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, November 18, 2023, from the CityLights Church, 4920-48 Street, Camrose officiated by Rev. Mary Ann Pastuck.

Trojans win high school football league title By Murray Green

The École Camrose Composite High School Trojans football team captured the Nine-a-side High School Football League championship title with a 31-14 victory over the Peace River Pioneers on November 4 in Kin Park. Camrose went undefeated in the five-team league at 4-0 and then won two straight playoff games to earn the league title within Football Alberta. Grade 12 middle linebacker Kale Rempel on the Trojans was excited to win the title in his final year in high school. “It is pretty important for me as a high school senior to win. It was definitely a memorable year playing a team sport and winning a championship, going undefeated, that is really big,” said Kale. “It was my biggest moment in my high school career, to win a championship.” Camrose met Peace River in the first game of the year and won in a shut out. But, the northern team improved vastly before the final game. “We knew it was going to be a fight, but we also knew that we improved significantly as well since we played them. I don’t think anyone was too worried, but everyone was looking forward to the game,” Kale added. “We had a lot more players this year compared to the previous years, more athletes and that translated into more rest. This game gave the returning players more experience for next year. It was also a good happiness factor and added confidence knowing that you went up against the best and won it. It really helps with your mental state too, which helps improve your game,” explained Kale. “It was great. It helps with the team bonding and connects the team for next year and we can come back even stronger next season,” added Layne McNalley. The team hopes to move back into the 12-man football game next season in the Central Alberta Schools Association Football League.

Make some noise for mental health, Vikings By Murray Green

The Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) launched its ninth annual ACAC Make Some Noise for Mental Health (MSN) campaign. University of Alberta Augustana Vikings will be hosting an event during the Friday, November 17 volleyball match against Briercrest that starts at 6 p.m. In continuity with previous years, the 2023 MSN campaign continues to

empower change-makers across 17 member post-secondary institutions spanning two provinces. Since its inception in 2015, Make Some Noise for Mental Health has consistently demonstrated its significance on the ACAC calendar. This campaign unites student-athletes, coaches, member institution staff, and mental health leaders in 15 different ACAC communities throughout Alberta and Saskatchewan.

During the campaign period, ACAC member institutions will host dynamic MSN-dedicated game day events, employ various social media platforms to amplify mental health awareness, and work diligently to break down the stigma surrounding mental health challenges. Noteworthy features of the 2023 campaign include a renewed emphasis on student-athlete involvement in campaign planning and

a designated day known as The Blast scheduled for November 20. On this day, each institution will come together to actively share MSN content across their social media platforms, creating a powerful collective impact. The Blast underscores the campaign’s core message of Strength in Unity, emphasizing the significance of positive mental health awareness and the imperative need to reduce stigma

associated with mental health challenges. Jeff Boyd, regional president, RBC, Alberta and the Territories, added, “We are committed to supporting the mental well-being of Canadian youth and appreciate partnering with the ACAC for the past seven years on this important work,” said Boyd. “The student advocacy during this campaign helps connect those who are impacted by mental illness with the support they need.”

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

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

Steer Clear of Abbreviations

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

Be Honest

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

State Your Price

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

Be Accessible

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

Don’t hesitate to call us with any questions or problems you may have regarding advertising. Our professionally trained sales staff know the ropes, and would be happy to pass their know-how on to you. That’s why we’re here to help you get the results you deserve.

Services are expected to resume mid-next week, but updates will be communicated to staff and patients as they become available,” said Jadene Mah, volunteer and Foundation coordinator at St. Mary’s.

Throughout the fall the Battle River School Division (BRSD) has been holding awards ceremonies in celebration and recognition of students successes and achievements. Awards days symbolize the collective effort of the entire community to honour and celebrate students but also pays homage to the commitment of local businesses, organizations and individuals to student education and growth. Rhae-Ann Holoien, superintendent of schools, is proud of the diligence demonstrated by BRSD students. “The future is bright in the hands of our BRSD students. It is amazing to hear the descriptions of our students that demonstrate hard work, citizenship, dedication, perseverance, and amazing talents while being presented with their deserved awards.” BRSD board trustees also proudly attend these ceremonies celebrating

with the schools and students. Successes of the students are not only a reflection of their hard work and dedication, but also of the incredible support provided by local sponsors, businesses, organizations, dedicated volunteers, and parents and guardians. Without the attention and care of each person, these events would not be possible.

Summer off-leash closed for season By Lori Larsen

In an effort to ensure residents have a place where they can let their dogs run and romp off leash, The City of Camrose offers both a year-round and seasonal site. The year-round site is a fenced-off area located behind the eastern segment of the Cornerstone Development at 6800-48 Avenue. It can be accessed by driving to back of the Safeway and Staples stores with parking in the designated area. The summer off-leash dog park area (designated Stoney Creek Valley) is now closed and residents will be advised to use the winter off-leash dog park at the City of Camrose Golf Course, south nine, once the grounds are completely covered in snow. As is the case with all City off-leash dog park facilities, users are reminded to respect all other users and follow the rules set out in the Dog Control Bylaw 3257-23, Section 27 that states City dog parks are shared, multi-use facilities and owners should ensure that the following rules are adhered to: (a) respect to other dogs and owners; (b) dogs are to be wear-

Being a baby must be terrifying. Imagine going to sleep in your house and next thing you know you wake up at the grocery store. I'm always surprised when heavily tattooed couples have a baby and it comes out blank. I am terrible at making small talk. I just asked the lady cutting my hair what she does for a living.

Incredible walkout bungalow

What happens when life gives you pickles instead of lemons? You dill with it. Sometimes I shock myself with the smart stuff I say and do. Other times, I try to get out of the car with my seatbelt on. I told my girlfriend she was drawing her eyebrows too high. She looked surprised. I told a joke on a Zoom meeting but no one laughed. Turns out I'm not remotely funny. I've started telling everyone about the benefits of eating dried grapes. It's all about raisin awareness. A priest, a pastor and a rabbit went to donate blood. The nurse asked the rabbit, "What is your blood type?" "I'm probably a type O," said the rabbit. I lent my blind friend some money the other day. He told me he was going to pay me back the next time he saw me … hey, wait a minute … Before buying something online, ask yourself, "Do I want to get an email from this company every day for the rest of my life?" I accidentally drank a bottle of invisible ink. I'm in the hospital now, waiting to be seen.

Employee of the Month – Part 1 Me: “I’m going to be a little late coming in on Monday.” Boss: “Okay, when will you be in?” Me: “Tuesday.” Interviewer: "What is your secret to lasting so long at your job?" Me: "I hide under my desk all day." Interviewer: "Why do you hide?" Me: "Because good employees are hard to find."

I called my boss and asked if I could come in a little late. He said, "Dream on." I think that was really nice of him. I worked at a bookstore and a customer asked me, "How often do the periodicals come out?" I replied, "Periodically" and he asked to speak to my boss! Every workplace should have a mandatory dodgeball game on Friday afternoons. That way, whoever you're mad at that week gets hit with a dodgeball. Then you can start fresh on Monday. Me texting the Boss: "Hey, are we still on for today?" Boss: "Yes, you don't need to text me this every morning. We are still 'on' for work every day from Monday to Friday." I told my boss three companies were after me and I needed a raise. He asked which three companies were interested. I said the gas, electric and internet. We should be able to call in healthy. "Look, I'm not coming in to the office today. I feel really good and I don't want to waste it on being at work." Interviewer: "What did you like best about your last job?" Me: "Sometimes people had birthdays and there was free cake." Boss: "You should have been here at 8:00." Me: "Why, what happened at 8:00?" I took my daughter to the office on Take Your Kid to Work Day, but when we walked in, she started to cry. As concerned staff gathered around, I asked her what was wrong and she said, "Daddy, I thought you said you worked with a bunch of clowns!"
