Hike for Hospice set to go

On Sunday, April 28 join others for a walk around Mirror Lake during the annual Hike For Hospice beginning at 1:30 p.m. at the Hospice Office located at 5415-49 Avenue (lower level of the Mirror Lake Centre.)

The Hike for Hospice is a national event that is held each year to kick off the hospice palliative care week in Canada.

“It is an awareness raising event, to educate people about the importance of hospice palliative care, to begin conversations about it and the need for early interventions,” explained Hospice Society of Camrose and District (HSCD) vicepresident Pam Cummer.

In Camrose, the annual event brings family members, friends, neighbours, colleagues and others together on a stroll around the Mirror Lake.

The event is also an opportunity to raise funds for HSCD and awareness of end-of-life and grief care in Camrose and district.

“Last year we raised over $10,000,” reported Cummer. “All the money raised stays in Camrose

and is used to support our staff and programs. If folks would prefer to donate to our Building Fund that is always an option as well.”

After the walk guests are invited to join in some refreshments (cakes, drinks and cinnamon buns) and take an opportunity to share their own experiences or speak with any of the HSCD staff or volunteers.

Pledge sheets for the Hike for Hospice can be picked up at the HSCD office or downloaded from the website at www.camrose hospice.org.

Easter season celebrated by children

They’re not just financial goals. They’re life goals. We’ll get you there.

On April 1, the Liberal-NDP costly coalition raised the carbon tax by a whopping 23 per cent, the next step in their plan to increase it to $170 a ton.

Conservatives gave the MPs from the Liberal backbench, the NDP and Bloc Quebecois a chance to stand up for Canadians and their constituents and stop the forthcoming hike…but they chose instead to continue to prop up the government.

This tax hike is coming at the worst possible time. Canadians are struggling after eight years of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s inflationary spending and taxes. MPs had a chance to listen to their constituents and bring some desperately needed relief this week on two occasions. They could have voted for a common-sense Conservative motion Wednesday to spike the hike, but they didn’t, which is why Pierre Poilievre introduced a motion of non-confidence this past week.

This past Thursday, Conservatives debated, and Parliament voted on a confidence motion to give Canadians a carbon tax election. The NDP and Bloc could have voted to give Canadians the power, but they did not. The Liberal-NDP-Bloc coalition instead abandoned their constituents and decided to prop up the historically unpopular Liberal Prime Minister in the twilight of his disastrous government. In fact, since NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh was elected, the NDP have voted with Trudeau on 93 per cent of confidence votes and all confidence votes since the 2021 election.

Seventy per cent of Canadians oppose Justin Trudeau’s April 1st tax hike and 70 per cent of provincial premiers–including the Liberal Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador and provincial Liberal parties in Ontario, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick–have asked the Prime Minister to stop this painful tax increase before it’s too late. But the truth is that the costly coalition is no longer listening to Canadians.

While the Liberals crow about how great everything is going for them, all while Canadians are hurting. The left-leaning coalition whose policies are dominating the public agenda of the nation are causing economic misery for so many. A simple example of this is skyrocketing food bank usage, of which these essential community organizations that have always been there for those who need it are expecting to see a million more people, only more devastation on top of last year’s record usage.

Trudeau has created the worst economic conditions since the great depression and Canadians have lost faith in his government. Only common-sense Conservatives will axe the tax, bring home lower prices for everyone and lead a government that you can trust.

Music Festival adjudicators

An important part of the Camrose and District Music Festival (April 15 to 18, Grand Concert on April 23) has always been the opportunity for participants to receive positive feedback on their performances by expert adjudicators.

The 2024 Festival is no exception welcoming six experienced and skilled adjudicators to the Festival to share their feedback and encouragement to the performers, including: Mireille Rijavec, Maria Medlow, Danica Hoffart, Ken Rogers, Esther Madsen and Dennis Rusinak.

Ken Rogers retired in 2018 from Lethbridge Collegiate Institute high school after a 32 year career of teaching music, Grades 5 through to university level.

He has conducted and played in many Lethbridge area musical groups including the Lethbridge Symphony Orchestra, Lethbridge Community Band, Lethbridge Big Band, and various musical theatre groups, most recently conducting the Broadway musical, The Secret Garden

Ken is a past president of the Alberta Band Association as well as the recipient of several awards including the John Philip Sousa Foundation’s Legion of Honour Laureate, the David J. Peterkin Memorial Award for outstanding service to band music in Alberta, the ABA’s Elkhorn Award for band teacher of the year and the Choir Alberta Con Spirito Award.

He currently conducts the choir at McKillop United Church in Lethbridge as well as adjudicating band festivals and conducting clinics, workshops, and honour bands across the province.

Esther Madsen studies with Vera Shean, Esther’s a founding member of both the Edmonton Symphony and Alberta College. Under Mrs. Shean’s teachings, Esther received her Associate degree in piano and is now an alumni of Conservatory Canada, formerly the Western Board School of Music. She rounded out this music degree with a BA in music theory and art history from the University of Alberta.

As a teacher with more than 40 years’ experience in both theory and piano studies, she finds new ways to reach students. Madsen believes that music has a power to help find balance in and enrich a person’s life.

Madsen’s long history with music festivals has evolved as a child performer, to a teacher of students, to a parent and finally to being involved with the music festival organization as an administrator.

Dennis Rusinak has a long history with music in Alberta and beyond.

After retiring from music educational service with the Wetaskiwin School Division, he was active in co-founding such musically artistic ventures as the River City Big Band, the Battle River Big Band and the Riverbend Saxophone Quartet. A five-year stint in Germany as music education director of the Canadian Forces Base Lahr in the Black Forest afforded him the opportunity to visit music education programs in much of Europe.

He’s proud to continue service as adjudicator for Alberta’s music festivals.

Mireille Rijavec, Maria Medlow, Danica Hoffart were featured on page 16 of the April 2 edition of The Camrose Booster

Anyone is welcome to come out to the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre (Mayer Hall and Cargill Theatre) or the University of Alberta Augustana Chapel, April 15, 16, 17 and 18, and enjoy any one of the performances featured in the 2024 Camrose and District Music Festival.

Doerksen named for Parr award

nominated Tofield teacher Kaden Doerksen for the Edwin Parr award.

He will represent Battle River School Division (BRSD) and be recognized provincially at Alberta School Boards Association’s fall general meeting.

Doerksen will represent the division as one of the Zone 4 nominees for 2023-24.

Six teachers who complete their first year of teaching with an Alberta School Boards Association (ASBA) member school board are selected annually by ASBA to represent each zone. The award recognizes exceptional Kindergarten to Grade 12 teachers who positively influence students. The award was established in 1964 after Parr’s passing to honour the significance of exceptional first year teachers within his own school division.

Doerksen convocated from Concordia University and is currently teaching junior high math, science and physical education at Tofield School. Though Doerksen is elementary trained, he is already teaching at the junior high level.

Zenovia Lazaruik, principal of Tofield School is proud of Doerksen’s nomination, his status as an exceptional beginning teacher and his reputation as a highly professional, caring and passionate teacher.

“Mr. Doerksen is a student-centred teacher who has been a welcome addition to Tofield School and to the division,” said Lazaruik. “He is passionate about everything he teaches, especially math and he shows perpetual dedication and commitment to the teaching profession and to his students.

“He demonstrates ease in building trust and relationships by getting to know the aspirations of his students. He learns about them as people while also building connections with their families, to ultimately build the strongest support system possible.”

Doerksen actively participates in extracurricular activities. In November, he stepped up as senior high boys’ varsity basketball coach without hesitation, while he wrapped up coaching the junior boys’ volleyball season.

“Kaden has designed captivating lessons that foster collaboration and relationships, creating a fun, engaging and inclusive learning environment,” said Lazaruik. “He deeply cares for his students’ well-being and academic progress, supporting students who face challenges while helping them reach their full potential to learn and grow. He is always willing to go that extra mile.”

Coaching has helped him to build further relationships with students outside of his classes. He encourages collaboration among athletes through effective coaching strategies including chunking skills, goal setting, sportsmanship and teamwork. He promotes clear expectations and effective classroom management skills, setting the stage for an optimal learning environment.

This training seminar is aimed at providing attendees with expert instruction on how to offer hope in Christ to family members, friends, coworkers, victims of disasters, and anyone experiencing a personal crisis.

“The Rapid Response Team has been around since 2001, directly after 9-11,” explained Rapid Response Team Canada manager Holly Lafont.

are traumatized and in crisis and bringing highly trained crisis chaplains into those moments to help people debrief and process their emotions.

“Because we are the Bill Graham Evangelistic Association, we ask them if they have a faith and we offer them the opportunity to know Jesus,” added Lafont. “However, we don’t discriminate in any way. Everybody gets the same care and love from our chaplains and if that is enough on its own, then we are good with that, but we always check.”

Lafont said the Rapid Response Teams began teaching the Sharing Hope in Crisis in the early 2000s and soon realized it is not only valuable for chaplains who want to take the training, but it is key training for communities that struggle with crisis situations.

“Franklin Graham (president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) and of Samaritan’s Purse) and Dr. William (Billy) Graham both looked at the people wandering around on the streets at Ground Zero after the planes flew into the buildings and they realized that all these people needed somebody to talk to.”

Recognizing a dire need to do something to bring comfort to the people directly impacted by one of the most devastating moments in history, BGEA brought in counselors and pastors and set them up in a building close to ground zero. “There was a lineup of people around the block just waiting for someone to talk to and someone to process their trauma with,” noted Lafont. “The BGEA realized the benefit of this, and that was the beginning of the Rapid Response Team with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.”

Since then the BGEA Rapid Response team has been going out to man made and natural disasters responding to people who

trauma and grief in a twohour version called God’s Hope in Crisis offered immediately after a community crisis event.

“For instance, after the Humboldt tragedy,” recalled Lafont. “We were there in Humboldt and Tisdale after that event, out in the community taking care of community members as chaplains, giving people a chance to talk and share their story and to unload so to speak.


Three-year-old Portuguese Water Dog True aims to please his master Brenda Brown at the Battle River Canine Association Dog Show at the Camrose Regional Exhibition on March 23. Brenda, formerly of Daysland, belongs to the BRCA, a Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) accredited all-breed dog club. It operates out of Camrose and offers two CKC all-breed conformation and obedience dog shows. There is one show in the fall (fourth weekend in October) and another in the spring (fourth weekend in March). Participants not only come from across Canada, but the United States as well. All-breed dogs compete in obedience, rally and scent-finding events.

“It helps community members build resiliency and reach out to each other and be confident with how to step into a conversation,” said Lafont, sharing an example of meeting a neighbour in a grocery store who just lost their spouse. “You would have a choice of going up to them and saying ‘Hey, I heard, let’s go have a cup of coffee’, or you could turn and walk the other way because you are afraid of saying the wrong thing.

“This training is designed to help people have the confidence to step into that conversation and bring comfort to that neighbour or family member or friend in need and to do it knowing they have what it takes.”

Lafont said that while the course is taught from a Christian perspective based on the beliefs and values of BGEA, the core of it–trauma and grief–is the same for anyone partaking in the program. It teaches what to say, what not to say, what grief looks like, natural reactions to trauma, and how to share the love of Jesus, when appropriate.

The BGEA Rapid Response Team also teaches

“I was able to teach the two-hour version of Crisis and Trauma in each of those communities and the community filled the room because it was such a raw situation, nobody knew how to respond.”

Grace Lutheran Church pastor Tom Burke is excited to be bringing the BGEA Rapid Response Team back to the Camrose community and encourages anyone interested in learning more about offering hope and

comfort to anyone in any situation to come out on April 27.

“The need to encourage our community members to confidently reach out to each other is so important,” said Lafont, “Because we don’t know when and what that crisis is going to be.”

Have a healthy relationship with food

Consuming a varied diet can provide our bodies with essential nutrients needed to function optimally.

Proper nutrition can also lower our risk of chronic disease and support our overall physical health, including the development and maintenance of strong bones, a robust immune system, and efficient organ function according to Alberta Health Services.

Food plays a central role in our customs, traditions and celebrations. What we eat is also influenced by education, income and access to food.

Having a healthy connection with food can also impact our physical and mental well-being.

A healthy relationship with food and eating is an important part of a healthy eating pattern. It can be different for everyone. Enjoy the taste, social, traditional and cultural aspects of food.

Be aware of how, why and where you eat. Listen to your body signals for hunger and fullness. Welcome all foods without fear or guilt. Look at food as a source of energy, nourishment and enjoyment. Know that eating will change based on appetite, emotions, routines and many other factors.

Slow down and take time to eat. Our lives are busy and often we have places to go, activities to do, or errands to run. When building a connection with food, it’s important to pay attention to textures and flavours of the food you are eating, which can be hard to do when you are rushing your meals and snacks.

Limit the use of phones, devices, televisions or distractions, while you are eating. Mindless eating is easy to do when we have a screen in front of us.

Notice when you are hungry or full and reconnecting to the eating experience by creating awareness of your thoughts, feelings, emotions and behaviours.

Plan what you would like to eat and involve others in planning and preparing.

Classrooms and school lunchrooms are locations where teachers have an opportunity to promote a healthy relationship with food amongst students. Parents and caregivers can also provide an environment to foster healthy relationships with food.

For this reason, public health dietitians at AHS have created resources to support an inclusive learning environment that is sensitive to diverse backgrounds.

Some tips for teachers, parents, caregivers, or mentors include emphasizing the positive aspects of eating, while helping children and teens recognize that food supports our physical, social, cognitive and mental well-being.

Referring to foods by their name or their type, such as a fruit or a protein

or a dessert, instead of labelling them as good, bad, clean or junk. Referring to foods with negative or positive connotations can lead to shame and stress around eating, which can contribute to unhealthy relationships with food, which may be harmful to health.

If you are a teacher, parent, or care provider and

want to learn more about supporting a healthy relationship with food, visit ahs. ca and search healthy relationship with food. If you are thinking about making changes to the way you eat and improve your relationship with food, the new year can be a good time to start.

Take a look at where you are now. Reflect on how you

think and talk about food, choose a small goal that is important to you. For example, maybe you often think about foods as good or bad. It may help to reframe how you think about or refer to food.

Ohaton rink, playground to receive upgrades

County has set aside funds to upgrade the Ohaton playground and rink.

At the regular meeting of council on March 26, administrator Teresa Gratrix explained a request for funding from the Ohaton Athletic Association.

“I move that Camrose County council authorize administration to work with the Ohaton Athletic Association to make repairs and improvements to the Ohaton Skating Rink, funded by the recreation reserve to a maximum of $80,000,” said councillor Carlene Wetthuhn.

The Ohaton Skating Rink is on County property managed by the Ohaton Athletic Association. As a County property, the Legacy Grant is not an appropriate funding source. The Recreation Reserve is funded through the recreation levy and is available for capital projects in the County and other municipalities serving County residents.

An estimate of financial implications are thought to be between $50,000 and $80,000 depending on the

scope of repairs. County council received a letter from Ohaton. “I am writing this letter on behalf of the Ohaton Athletic Association. During our March 5, annual meeting the condition of the skating rink at the Ohaton Playground was discussed and it was decided to send this letter, asking if it would be possible for the County to do some repairs and updates to the skating rink as it is showing real need for repairs. The skating rink’s cement surface is showing a fair amount of cracking and flaking so will need to be repaired or replaced. Around the bottom of the boards, where they meet the cement, needs to be sealed as during flooding the water seeps out which wastes a lot of water and time flooding. Replace any damaged puck boards around the ice surface. We would also like to request lines painted on the cement for pickleball. We have had interest shown in the community for this to be done and would mean the skating rink to be used all year long,” said secretary Debbie Howard of the Ohaton Athletic Association.

UFA partners with University of Saskatchewan

Co-operative (UFA) recently announced that it will be sponsoring the University of Saskatchewan’s (USask) Opus pre-accelerator program.

The Opus pre-accelerator program is a start up incubator that provides entrepreneurs with the tools needed to build successful ventures on campus.

“We are proud to support and guide innovative research taking place in USask’s Opus program,” said UFA Chief Technology and Innovation officer Lisa Kissick. “Our partnership leverages the ingenuity and talent of energetic, bright entrepreneurs to strengthen Saskatchewan’s innovation network. We value young pioneering minds, and it’s exciting that together, we can help build a healthy innovation ecosystem, positioning Saskatchewan as a leader in sustainable Agtech solutions and ultimately benefitting the farmers and ranchers we serve.”

According to the news release this strategic collaboration will deliver many benefits and opportunities to UFA and its member-owners, including access to key innovators in Saskatchewan and a pipeline to regional startups.

“The alliance with USask demonstrates UFA’s commitment to advocating on behalf of our membership, elevating the next generation of entrepreneurs with the resources and expertise to address challenges facing the global agriculture sector, and collaborating on solutions that create value for producers,” adds Kissick. “As we expand operations into Saskatchewan, the partnership also illustrates our commitment to ensuring rural communities in Saskatchewan grow and thrive for future generations.”

Recently, I was able to give a speech in the Legislature in support of Bill 14, the Appropriation Act, 2024. The minister of finance has taken the time to listen to Albertans on what matters to them, and our United Conservative Government has worked hard to ensure that this budget continues to strengthen health care and education, build safe communities and manage resources wisely to support a growing province, responsibly. The challenges the minister faced in delivering this budget were no small hurdles. Somehow, in the face of these challenges, the minister has crafted a budget which manages to remain fiscally responsible, without jeopardizing the services that Albertans value. The fiscal responsibility portion stands as uniquely important to me as an elected official.

When I first decided to run for public office, it was the thought of saddling future generations with debt they didn’t earn that motivated me to want to make a difference. It is truly unthinkable to burden our children with the consequences of reckless spending. Now, perhaps the members of the opposition and their friends in Ottawa don’t see this burden as a big deal, but that view could not be further from reality. The 2024-25 budget will spend over three billion dollars on servicing the debt that they previously created. Every dollar spent repaying previous debt is a dollar that could be better used funding the services that Albertans deserve.

Budget 2024 doesn’t just bring peace of mind, but it also upholds promises that our government has made. In 2023 our government established a new fiscal framework which required future governments to balance their budgets, pay down their debts and save for the future. This is why I am so proud of the fiscal responsibility demonstrated in Budget 2024. This budget represents three more years of balanced budgets, with a $367 million surplus in 2024-25 and projecting surpluses over $1 billion for the following years.

I believe the choices made in Budget 2024 don’t only reflect the fiscal responsibility I value so deeply, but also the priorities of Albertans. This is a responsible plan that puts Albertans and Alberta families first by investing in their health, education, safety, and economic growth and success. Budget 2024 would make investments into areas my constituents value. It would support our seniors. It would protect Albertans suffering from addiction and mental health challenges. It would bolster the future of Alberta through investments in education. Additionally, it would invest in a refocused healthcare system, so that every Albertan has access to the care they need, when and where they need it. This is what my constituents have been asking for and this is what Budget 2024 delivers. Supporting Budget 2024 means supporting the future of Alberta, which is why I call on all those in this chamber to join me in voting for Bill 14, the Appropriation Act, 2024. Contact my office if you require my assistance. A reminder that I am a commissioner of oaths and a notary public and provide the service free for constituents.

Ripening up for Lemonade Day

There are so many things to look forward to with warmer weather, no more bulky clothing, no more shovelling and more outdoor activities including familiar sightings of lemonade stands spotted throughout the City.

For some younger residents the prospect of making a little extra money, come summer, leaves a sweet taste in their mouths, and Lemonade Day is the perfect way to do so.

Scheduled for June 15, Lemonade Day Northern Alberta is a free, fun experiential learning program that began in 2018 as a way to encourage young people from kindergarten to Grade 12 to reap the benefits of developing, opening and operating their own business.

Since its inception Lemonade Day participants have donated over $35,000 to charities and made over $110,000 in profit.

The program teaches participants about entrepreneurship, finances, customer service, goal setting, and creativity.

All registrants will attend Lemmy University (Lemmy U) where they will receive a free backpack with an Entrepreneur Workbook that teaches them the valuable lessons of Lemonade Day.

Lessons include how to set a goal, make a plan and work the plan. Specifically, participants will learn about the importance of location, location, location; acquiring proper City permits and licences; working closely with other community businesses and organizations; product quality and marketing; creating and working within a budget; customer service; repaying investors and giving back to the community.

Profit is a big part of the business world and Lemonade Day participants are no exception. In the past, Camrose Lemonade Day stand owners

have come up with some ingenious ideas, such as tweaking their lemonade recipes or selling snacks or other artisan items to increase their profit margins, motivated by the fact that they get to keep all the money they earn, after repayments.

However, another vital part of the program encourages Lemonade Day stand owners to spend some, save some and share some of their profits.

Since 2018, when the program began, over 31 per cent of profits have been donated back to assist various not-for-profit organizations.

By welcoming local businesses, agencies, organizations and individuals to get involved with these young entrepreneurs, Lemonade Day Northern Alberta has broadened the focus of Lemonade Day to get the community involved in investing in youth.

Registration for the Lemonade Day program opened March 1 and will close on May 15.

“We’re encouraging early registration to give children sufficient time to develop their business plans, said Community Futures East Central Alberta Project coordinator/ Small Business advisor Louise Jones.

Jones indicated that registrants will be provided with guidance and post-registration information through email. “We are aiming for them to make progress on their plan before attending Lemmy U, which acts as a follow-up to their initial work.”

Camrose Lemmy U days are scheduled for May 14 and May 22.

“Participants and parent/parents only need to attend one of these sessions,” noted Jones.

For more information or to register for Lemonade Day Northern Alberta visit https://lemonadeday. org/northern-alberta or visit them on Facebook.

Last year’s winner of the Best Tasting Lemonade, Jacob McCarroll, standing behind the stand, took a lot of pride in serving a special recipe using lemons from his grandmother’s lemon tree in Arizona.

Learn the facts about diabetes

Learn facts about the disease diabetes and reduce your risk factors by staying active.

Diabetes is a disease in which your body either can’t produce insulin or can’t properly use the insulin it produces, according to Alberta Health Services.

Insulin is a hormone produced by your pancreas. Its role is to regulate the amount of glucose (sugar) in the blood. Blood sugar must be carefully regulated to ensure the body functions properly. Too much blood sugar can cause damage to organs, blood vessels, and nerves. Your body also needs insulin in order to use sugar for energy.

According to diabetes.ca, 11 million Canadians are living with diabetes or prediabetes.

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease and is also known as insulin-dependent diabetes. People with Type 1 diabetes aren’t able to produce their own insulin (and can’t regulate their blood sugar) because their body is attacking the pancreas. Roughly 10 per cent of people living with diabetes have Type 1, insulin-dependent diabetes.

Type 1 diabetes generally develops in childhood or adolescence but can also develop in adulthood. People with Type 1 need to inject insulin or use an insulin pump to ensure their bodies have the right amount of insulin.

People with Type 2 diabetes can’t properly use the insulin made by their bodies, or their bodies aren’t able to produce enough insulin. Roughly 90 per cent of people living with diabetes have Type 2 diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes is most commonly developed in adulthood, although it can also occur in childhood. Type 2 diabetes can sometimes be managed with healthy eating and regular exercise alone, but may also require medications or insulin therapy.

Prediabetes is a condition where blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but are not yet high enough to be diagnosed as Type 2 diabetes. Although not everyone with prediabetes will develop Type 2 diabetes, many people will.

If you think you or someone you know may have Type 2 diabetes or prediabetes, speak to a doctor or health care provider.

Staying active is crucial in the prevention of health risks associated with Type 2 diabetes and prediabetes. Regular physical activity helps improve insulin sensitivity, allowing the body to more effectively regulate blood sugar levels. It also aids in weight management by burning calories and reducing excess body fat, a major risk factor for diabetes. Exercise contributes to better cardiovascular health, lowering the risk of heart disease which is a common complication of diabetes.

By incorporating physical activity into one’s daily routine, individuals can significantly reduce their chances of developing these serious health conditions and lead a healthier, more active life.

Staying physically active in the winter time can be challenging, especially in Alberta.

Here are some ways to incorporate physical activity into your life to reduce health risks associated with Type 2 diabetes and prediabetes.

Try a classic winter activity like skating, skiing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing or sledding. These types of high-intensity activities help keep you warm when it is freezing outside.

Mall walking is a warmer option for wintertime exercise. You can walk at your own pace and increase the frequency, intensity and duration to improve your fitness level. Your local mall may even have an organized walking club.

You can also try a yoga class; join an indoor sports club like badminton, squash, or basketball; climb stairs, either at home or in your workplace. Spend as little as 10 minutes at a time climbing up and down the stairs for an intense and efficient workout; go for a walk at lunchtime, especially on sunny days so you can absorb some vitamin D; shovel snow; active housework like vacuuming, sweeping, or mopping will get you moving; join a bowling league or start your own; go for a swim at your local indoor pool; find an accountability buddy. It can be hard to stay motivated to exercise in winter. Find a friend to exercise with, it can help keep you both motivated to stay active.

Stay hydrated. Even though it’s colder out and you might not feel as thirsty as you would in warmer weather, it’s just as important to stay hydrated. Drink water before, during and after exercise.

Gravel aggregates to increase next year

The price of hauling gravel on Camrose County roads will be going up next year.

At the regular meeting of council on March 26, they approved a rate increase with second and third readings on Bylaw 1544.

“I move that Camrose County give third reading to Bylaw 1544 and that it reflects the effective date of January 1, 2025,” said councillor Doug Lyseng.

Council gave first reading to the community aggregate bylaw at the February 27 council meeting.

The draft bylaw was sent to the County’s gravel companies and also advertised in the paper.

“Most of the concern has come from gravel pit operators who feel the notice was too short (first proposed for six months away) as they have been bidding jobs for this current year,” advised Anjah Howard, manager of planning and development.

Last year, the County received $288,089 in aggregate fees for gravel hauling.

Camrose County first adopted the community aggregate bylaw in 2015 at a rate of 0.25 cents per tonne. The maximum allowable rate under the Community Aggregate Regulation (Provincial) is 0.40 cents per tonne. The Cap Levy program was set to expire December 2024. The Alberta Sand and Gravel Association is advocating for changes to the program, including regulations that the revenue earned by municipalities be used for a specific program (community invest-

ment such as playgrounds or recreation facilities) and possibly some of the funds be reserved for reclamation of abandoned sand and gravel pits (returned to the Sand and Gravel Association).

To date Camrose County has included levied funds in general revenue for the use in maintenance and gravelling of County roads.

“This doesn’t even cover a third of the costs of gravelling the roads, so the funds go back into fixing the roads. We need those funds for repairing roads, not playgrounds,” said County administrator Teresa Gratrix.

A comparison of surrounding municipalities found that 0.40 cents a tonne is the common rate.

An increase in the 2024 CAP levy to .40 cents would potentially give Camrose County $460,943 in revenue and an increase of $172,853.

According to Rural Municipalities Association (RMA) there will be provincial stakeholder engagement sessions sometime during 2024 in order to look at potential changes to the legislation.

The Municipal Government Act authorizes the council of Camrose County to pass a community aggregate payment levy bylaw to impose a levy in respect of all sand and gravel businesses operating in the municipality to raise revenue to be used toward the payment of infrastructure and other costs in the municipality.
