Gently casting a line into still waters and watching the ripples radiate outwards until they disappear. Anticipating that tug at the other end with hopes of reeling in a catch. Then admiring the glint of the sun off the iridescent scales of the fish as you release them back for another angler.

Many people agree that fishing can be a soothing way to enjoy the great outdoors, which is why Camrose and District Fish and Game Association, in partnership with Alberta Conservation Association, Alberta Wildlife Federation and Inland Concrete, are offering a Kids Can Catch fishing day at Pleasure Island Fish Pond on Saturday, June 1 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.

Pleasure Island is located five kilometres east of Camrose and one kilometre south of Highway 13.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for children to try their hand at fishing,” noted Camrose and District Fish and Game Association president Glen Hand.

“If you have your own rods and tackle bring them, otherwise we will have some there to borrow.”

The day will include a fly rod fishing demonstration, fishing mentors on hand to assist with new anglers, complimentary beverages, hot dogs and hamburgers (courtesy of Inland Concrete, while supplies last) and free giveaways for youth (while supplies last).

Subject experts will also be on hand to provide information on fishing and conservation.

While you are there, enjoy the beautiful walking trails and natural amphitheatre overlooking a pond where you can spot a variety of different waterfowl and birds.

Pleasure Island is equipped with a pet friendly area and public restrooms offering mobility challenged access.

Note, all Alberta Sportfishing Regulations are applicable to this event and can

Want to be happy?

Be generous.

Last month, I had the privilege of spending time with 12 people who are part of a not-forprofit group that I admire.

Two things struck me. First, though each personality was different, each person was generous with both time and money. Second, this was a group of basically contented people.

So–do generosity and contentment go together?

Twelve people is too small a sample to make a generalization but…I thought yes!

Then last week I came across research with an interesting conclusion: being generous goes with being happy. ***

In 2019, researchers from the Department of Psychology at the University of Lubeck, Germany, conducted an experiment with volunteers. They studied the volunteers’ brain with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to see what happened in the volunteers’ brains when they chose to be generous.

The researchers recruited 50 volunteers and divided them into two groups. They gave each person 25 Swiss francs (about $30 Canadian) every week for four weeks. They told one group that the money was theirs to spend on themselves, like going out for dinner or buying something. They asked the other group to spend the money on other people, like taking a friend out for dinner.

At the end of the four weeks, the volunteers had to make a decision that had nothing to do with the first part of the experiment. They had to choose a person they wanted to give a gift to. It couldn’t be the same person as in the first part of the study. While the volunteers were deciding, the researchers used MRI to measure the changes that occurred in their brains.

The scientists gave them options they could accept or reject. Each option would benefit the chosen person and would also cost the volunteer money. All the options would cost the volunteer, so accepting the option required some personal sacrifice.

Before the second experiment, the researchers had measured the personal happiness of each volunteer through a questionnaire. After the decision-making process in the second phase, the researchers measured volunteers’ happiness levels using MRI brain scans. Researchers could see if there were changes in the volunteers’ levels of happiness.

The researchers found that the volunteers who had used their money for other people were also the ones who made the most generous decisions in the second experiment. The more generous people also had the greater increase in happiness.


Generosity is common in all cultures. According to the article I read by Harry T. Prewitt in Medium, this and other experiments show that generosity is a universal trait. It doesn’t depend on socioeconomic status. Generosity is a more spontaneous action than greed, which Prewitt says requires more thought (It tickles me that being greedy is more difficult than being generous).

We humans are social beings. Our ancestors did not survive alone. Generosity enhances social connections. Even if a generous act costs us or won’t enhance our reputation, being generous improves our social connections. Generosity helps our species survive.


While prowling around on-line, I came across “Five qualities of generous people.”

Altruism–the principle and practice of being concerned for the well-being and happiness of other people or animals above oneself.

Optimism–a belief that things will turn out well.

Trust–faith in oneself and others.

Energy–the strength and vitality needed for physical or mental activity.

Ability to lead–wisely and ethically.

I thought back to the 12 people in the not-for-profit group I admire. Each one has a different personality. Each one demonstrates all five generous qualities. Each one is a leader.

It pleases me to think that being generous is good for the world and makes us happier.

Our cups runneth over.

Carbon tax

Carbon tax–I’m confused–help.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s carbon tax was introduced in October 2019 at $20/tonne of emissions penalty charge on most necessities of life. As of April 1, this tax had morphed into $80/tonne of emissions and scheduled to increase by $15/tonne of emissions each year thereafter. Okay.

Intent of Trudeau carbon tax is to reduce the rate of global emissions that contribute to climate change (i.e. severe draught, catastrophic hurricane seasons, record setting rainfall, etc.). As a proverbial pinprick in total global emissions, I wish Canada luck in bringing about measureable climate change unless the big emitters buy in.

But here at home, recent outbreaks in Alberta wildfires has prompted the usual NDP complaints against the UCP government for being unprepared and short on firefighting resources.

Last year, I recall both Alberta and Nova Scotia governments strongly indicated as much as 50 per cent of wildfires are attributed to intentional and unintentional human behaviour.

Here is my confusion. Should not a portion of carbon tax proceeds be allocated to tracking down, charging and imprisoning culprits? Reducing forest fires through the courts just might be better odds of saving the planet (or at least Canada) than a tax considering the lasting and harmful smoke impact, re-

source destruction and disruption of the lives of thousands–shouldn’t Canadian CSIS and RCMP security have the incentive and duty to employ all their resources to apprehend and arrest. Ever since the Slave Lake fire of 10 years ago, Fort McMurray fire of eight years ago and Shelburne, Nova Scotia fire of last year, suspects were reported to be on the radar. As the saying goes, where there is smoke, there is fire. To my knowledge there hasn’t been a single arrest. Correct me if I’m wrong. Set a precedent by imposing the law with harsh penalties. Whether fires are set by carelessness or devious motives, one must know there will be a huge price to pay.

Learn about eating disorders

Eating disorders affect people of all genders, sexual orientations, ages, socioeconomic class, abilities, race and ethnic backgrounds.

They are serious mental illnesses that can be lifethreatening, regardless of body size or weight, according to Alberta Health Services.

While people may be concerned about their body image and aware of these thoughts, serious obsessions with food, body weight and/ or shape may be signs of an eating disorder.

Eating Disorder Awareness Week is a national week dedicated to action and education of the public regarding eating disorders.

Eating disorders are illnesses that affect the brain, which influences judgement and emotions. There are several different kinds of eating disorders, but the most wellknown are anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating nervosa. All eating disorders can be associated with serious medical and psychological complications and early detection and intervention are important.

Misconceptions that eating disorders are a lifestyle choice or only affect certain people continue to be common. Despite these misconceptions, anyone can develop an eating disorder. They do not discriminate and can be seen in all genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations and socio-economic backgrounds.

While eating disorders are most commonly seen in teens and young adults, they can also develop in children or later in life. There are studies that show people over the age of 60 can experience eating disorders, however this age group needs more research. In Alberta, up to 15 per cent of females and eight per cent of males between ages 15 to 71, report symptoms that may warrant an eating disorder diagnosis or treatment.

Individuals with eating disorders may not show obvious signs that they are ill and health care providers and loved ones may miss the warning signs. One cannot confirm an eating disorder based on physical appearance.

Changes in weight are not the only sign. The majority of those with eating disorders are not visibly underweight. People who are low, average, or higher in weight can have eating disorder symptoms and individuals at any weight may be malnourished.

Huge support

By Lori Larsen In support of those living with and affected by ALS, residents are invited to come out on Saturday, June 1 to Mirror Lake Park, for the annual Alberta Walk Together for ALS event, hosted by the ALS Society of Alberta Registration for the walk will begin at 9:30 a.m. with the walk taking place at 10 a.m.

battling this fatal disease,” commented Cheryl. “The ALS Society is supporting her and her family through their equipment lending program.”

Lori’s story began nearly five years ago when she was first diagnosed with ALS, and despite the onset of physical and emotional challenges, Lori has remained a positive example

ALS is a rapid, always fatal, neurodegenerative disease that attacks the nerves of the body that send messages from the brain to the muscle, resulting in muscle weakness and wasting. In time a person struggling with ALS will be left completely immobilized with an inability to swallow or breath.

“My mother-in-law Anita Feth was on the first organizing committee while battling the disease and stayed on the committee until her passing from the disease in 2014,” noted Camrose ALS Walk organizer Cheryl Feth.

“Our family has been tragically touched by this disease not once but several times. Sadly less than two years after Anita’s passing, her daughter succumbed to ALS as well.”

Funds raised during the Walk, as well as other fundraising initiatives, assist the Society in helping Albertans living with ALS and their families live as comfortably and independently as possible through home visits, support groups, information, referrals and equipment lending programs.

Since 2009, Camrose has been holding annual walks in June, and to date has raised a total of $454,918.45, with last year’s walk raising $36,384.10.

“Now, my good friend Lori Huolt, a member of our Camrose community is

of what a grateful attitude can do.

“I have lost my speech but have gained a communication device. I can no longer walk but have gained a wheelchair to go wherever I want. I have lost the use of my hands but have gained the helping hands of my loving husband, family and friends. It is not what we lose in life but rather what we can do to make our lives and those around us better.”

In support of her friend’s battle with ALS, for the last three years Cheryl has made “Lori’s Lanyards,” raising more than $5,000 for the ALS Society of Alberta.

The Lanyards can be purchased at the Camrose Safeway Pharmacy; however, if a business is interested in selling them, Cheryl would arrange to make them available.

Through generous donations and continued promotion of awareness, the ALS Society is able to provide support, facilitate the provision of care, help find a cure and advocate for change.

being. By building trusting relationships and being vigilant, neighbours can work together to create a safer and more secure community.

Having good neighbours means having a support system nearby. In times of need, such as during emergencies, illness, or other challenges, neighbours can offer assistance, whether it’s lending a helping hand, providing emotional support, or sharing resources.

Being a good neighbour fosters a sense of belonging and connection to the community. When neighbours care about each other and actively participate in community events and activities, it creates a strong sense of cohesion and unity.

Being known as a good neighbour not only benefits you personally, but also enhances your reputation within the community. Others are more likely to trust and respect someone who demonstrates kindness, consideration and reliability.

Good neighbours communicate openly and address issues constructively, which helps to prevent misunderstandings and conflicts from escalating. This leads to a less stressful living environment for everyone involved.

A neighbourhood with a reputation for being well-maintained and friendly can positively impact property values.

Potential homebuyers are often attracted to areas where they feel welcomed and where there is a sense of community pride.

Being a good neighbour often leads to positive interactions and goodwill, which tends to be reciprocated. When you extend kindness and consideration to your neighbours, they are more likely to do the same for you, creating

a cycle of positivity. Ultimately, being a good neighbour is about contributing to the greater good of the community and making a positive difference in the lives of those around you. It’s an investment in building stronger, healthier, and more vibrant neighbourhoods for everyone to enjoy.

Cody Coverchuk of Meadow Lake, SK, won the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) Canada, Rose City Invitational in Camrose on May 11.

He rode two bulls at the Recreation Centre to hold onto the number one rank in the national standings. Coverchuk counted the fourth best score with 84 points from the judges. That score was good enough to give himself a second ride.

His second ride earned him 86.5 points, enough to claim the victory. The two rides gave Coverchuk 119 national points. He already had a 96.5 point lead heading to Camrose.

Jake Gardner of Fort St. John, BC, is second and earned 84 national points at the Rose City Invitational. He scored 86.5 points in the championship round.

The City of Camrose Recreation and Culture Department played host to the Alberta Community Arts Clubs Association’s Central Alberta Zone Show, exhibited at the Chuck MacLean Arts Centre on May 10 to 12. Appreciators of the arts showed up at the opening ceremonies held on May 10.

Hazardous roundup scheduled for June 7/8

City of Camrose Council approved two City hosted Household Hazardous Waste Roundup (HHWRU) events for 2024, at a proposed budget of $63,000, during the May 6 City of Camrose regular council meeting.

“Funding for the HHWRU events has historically been covered through tipping fees and other revenue from the Camrose Regional Sanitary Landfill,” reported City of Camrose Engineering Department Senior Municipal Engineering technologist, Amy Johnson. “Landfill revenues for 2024 are currently higher than budget, due to increased revenue from a number of large haul soil projects. Administration sees no strain to meet the currently allocated funds in the 2024 budget for the HHWRU.”

Johnson noted that despite their departure from Camrose Regional Solid Waste Authority (CRSWA) in February of this year, Camrose County and the Village of Bittern Lake have expressed interest in continuing to partner with the City of Camrose to host the HHWRU, to continue to provide the service for all residents in the area.

“The County has confirmed their interest, and is currently reviewing a draft service agreement,” said Johnson. “The Village has not responded

to the recent communications at this time.”

According to Johnson’s report, based on historical attendance, the County residents make up 15 to 20 per cent of the total number of participants, whereas the Village residents have historically accounted for around one per cent of the total number of participants.

Administration rec-

ommended hosting one HHWRU in the spring, (June 7 and 8) and one in the fall (date to be determined.)

For more information on the HHWRU, including a list of what qualifies as household hazardous waste, visit the City of Camrose website at www.

ACACA Art exhibit Opening Ceremony

The City of Camrose Recreation and Culture Department, welcomed back the Alberta Community Arts Clubs Association’s (ACACA) Central Alberta Zone Show held May 10 to 12, featuring works from across Central Alberta displayed at the Chuck Mac Lean Arts Centre.

City of Camrose Deputy Mayor, councillor Joy-Anne Murphy welcomed guests to the Chuck MacLean Arts Centre during the Opening Ceremony held May 10 at 1:30 p.m. “This is so wonderful to have the opportunity to have displays such as this. To have local and regional art come together and have people come to appreciate it.”

behalf of the ACACA was ACACA president Cindy Clark.

“The Alberta Community of Arts Clubs Association is 55 years old this year and was first developed as a means for rural (people) or people who didn’t have access to education or arts community,” explained Clark.

“It was a way for artists who sat at their kitchen tables to get together and have somebody who is trained in a university or trained in the principles of art to tell them how they can get better. It is also a way for them to show their art and become a community. I think over 55 years we certainly have become a community.”

Steven Hansen, chair of Camrose Arts Council, brought greetings on behalf of the Camrose Arts Council. “This is a wonderful event and I have really enjoyed walking around and looking at all the creativity before us.”

In speaking of the Camrose Arts and Culture Grant Funding Program, Hansen said, “This is a city that cares about the arts.”

Hansen also spoke about the Mayor’s Arts Awards program, describing both the Arts Champion Award and Creator Award, noting that nominations for the Creator Award are now open, closing June 30.

For complete details on the Mayor’s Arts Awards visit the City of Camrose website at recreation-and-leisure/ camrose-arts-councilmayor-s-arts-awards.aspx Offering greetings on

City of Camrose Recreation and Culture in-house curator, Jayda Calon, remarked on what a great honour and joy it was for her to, once again, be able to curate the exhibit.

“I really enjoy looking at art and placing works accordingly to best showcase the collections.”

Calon commented that it was a privilege to be involved with the curation of such a diverse array of work. “I am grateful for the opportunity to share these captivating works with you all in Camrose. I believe these pieces collectively make up a great display of talent in our central area.”

As well as the ACACA Central Alberta Zone Show, the Recreation and Culture Department was delighted to feature an exhibit of pieces by artists of the local Mirror Lake Art Club, in Studio B.

Waste Water Treatment Plan project update

During the May 6 City of Camrose Committee of the Whole meeting, City of Camrose Engineering Services manager Jeremy Enarson, updated council on the progress of the Waste Water Treatment Plant project.

According to the report the following highlights recent work completed and work still to be done.

Pumping upgrades:

• All work within the South Lift Station (SLS) building is now complete.

has until the end of June to ensure all parameters are within the new limits without being in contravention of the approval.

Financial status

Enarson reported that to date the WWTP upgrade project has cost $48,051,782 and anticipates final cost at end of project of $50,418,458, $751,543 under the approved budget of $51,170,000.

When it ’s over, it ’s over.

All items must be remo ved from boulevards (Cit y of Camrose proper ty).

Items should not be left out for free pick-up in front of dwellings at any other time of the year. Please comply. Keep our city tidy


Frankly, items not claimed af ter two full days may be deemed as junk Items wet from dew or rain are probably junk and need to be owner-transpor ted to the landfill .


One person’s junk may not prove to be another person’s treasure BE FAIR!

■ Centra Cam’s The Essentials Boutique cannot accept your junk . ■ Diabetes Collection Bins are for gently used and future us able clothing. No, they do not want your wet furniture, applianc es , broken toys , etc.

■ Haul any leftover items directly to the landfill. Your junk is not a City of Camrose Public Works problem. Don’ t abuse, or we will all lose . Until next time , thanks from…


Submitted Former Camrose Kodiaks general manager, Boris Rybalka, now a proud member of Team Canada Para Ice Hockey coaching staff, helped celebrate the team’s recent winning of the gold medal at the World Para Ice Hockey Championship held in Calgary on May 12.

• Outstanding work at the SLS is the commissioning of one building mechanical (HVAC) unit.

• Exterior to the SLS building, works still needs to be done on the replacement of an existing manhole, as well as the installation of new security fencing around the SLS building and related out-buildings.

“The fencing will maintain public access to the existing trails in the area, while enhancing security around the City’s critical assets,” noted Enarson. “This fence installation will be completed in the summer of 2024, following the replacement of the manhole.”

Treatment upgrades: All upgrades to the City’s treatment processes; main site improvements (culvert installation, final grading including ditch construction, permanent internal road construction and landscaping) and conversion of the former blower building into the new storage building and workshop, are all now complete.

Storage upgrades, including landfill clay stockpile:

• All work related to the Landfill Clay Purchase project and the original contract work related to the upgrades to the storage lagoons is complete.

Final landscaping, construction of parking lot and trail access:

• All work related to this scope is substantially complete. Final grading and landscaping of the construction laydown area is ongoing, and will be completed shortly.

Enarson said that Administration continues to test the City’s wastewater on a regular basis to confirm if the WWTP is meeting the treatment requirements, as required by the provincial and federal regulators.

“Most of the required treatment parameters are meeting the new limits outlined by the regulators, although there are still a few parameters which are not consistently meeting the new limits,” reported Enarson, adding that the City

The report indicated that the Camrose Regional Solid Waste Authority (CRSWA) spent $1,551,000 on the Landfill Clay Purchase project.

“As all work on the Landfill Clay Purchase project is now complete, the City is not expecting any additional changes from MRCL or from AE related to that project. Due to a significant reduction in the amount of clay that was moved from storage Cell I to the landfill stockpile, the final project cost is approximately $1,551,550 which is significantly lower than the approved budget of $3,104,000.”

Council inquiries Councillor Agnes Hoveland asked if there has been any noticeable change in the ammonia levels since the implementation of the MMBR process.

“That is the area of our treatment that I have probably been the most pleased with,” replied Enarson. “Now that we have the new system up and going we have had a number of months of operation under our belts. Utility staff have been going out to the post treatment storage lagoons and taking samples and all of our ammonia numbers are significantly lower, all fully within the limits from the Province and the Federal government. That has been a really positive thing.”

Enarson added that the treatment concerns now are more related to phosphorus. “We are working with Maple Reinders and our consultant to work through these issues and make sure we are compliant by the end of June.”

keeps every part of your body working properly. It helps your body flush waste and stay at the right temperature. It can also help prevent kidney stones and constipation.

You lose water throughout the day, through your breath, sweat, urine and bowel movements. If you live somewhere hot, you could lose even more fluid, according to Alberta Health Services.

It is important to replace this lost fluid to stay healthy. If you don’t get enough water, you could become dehydrated. If you get very dehydrated, your body no longer has enough fluid to get blood to your organs which can be very dangerous.

All liquids help you stay hydrated, but water is usually the best choice. A common recommendation is to drink six to eight glasses of water a day (250-mL or eight fluid ounzes). Some adults may need more depending on your overall health, how much you exercise and how

hot or dry the climate is. Most people get enough fluid through the beverages they normally drink each day. You also get water through food. Some fruits and vegetables contain a lot of water, such as watermelon and lettuce.

Experts say it is not true that beverages containing caffeine such as coffee, tea, and cola drinks are dehydrating. Healthy individuals who consume moderate amounts of caffeine do not lose more fluid than people who don’t have any caffeine. A moderate amount of caffeine is about 200- to 300mg per day which is about two to four cups of coffee.

If you are feeling well, you urinate every few hours during the day and are not feeling thirsty often, you are likely drinking enough water. Keep a cup or water bottle by your desk at work. Take several sips of water each hour. If you don’t have a desk job, carry a container of water with you and take sips throughout the day.

Failed legalization drug experiment

Everyone knows someone who has faced addiction and the devastation and loss it wreaks on individuals, families and communities.

Time and time again, addiction has resulted in trapping its victims in hopeless situations. This makes it unbelievable that two years ago, the Liberals, with the support of the NDP, decriminalized hard drugs like cocaine, heroin, fentanyl and crystal meth in the province of British Columbia. This is nothing less than an extremist experiment that has cost countless Canadians their lives and has resulted in dangerous drug-fueled environments in Canadian hospitals, playgrounds, parks, and other such public spaces.

Conservative Party of Canada leader, Pierre Poilievre, has been critical of this policy since its inception, but it came to a head in the last number of weeks as the provincial NDP in British Columbia admitted failure when they announced they wanted to scale back this dangerous experiment. Retired police officer, Chuck Doucette, president of the Drug Prevention Network of Canada, stated, “Whether they’re legal or decriminalized or not—doesn’t make them any less likely to kill you.”

It is regrettable that the Liberals and NDP would continue to promote this dangerous experiment instead of promoting treatment. Further, there are a growing number of examples where the government has been providing drugs, all with taxpayers’ money, to which those drugs are then being resold on the streets without consequence. Rural parts of the country are no exception to this.

Although BC is the only place where drugs have been decriminalized, the Liberal-NDP government has not ruled it out from happening in other places as major cities such as Toronto and Montreal have put in requests for the same. What’s worse, the Liberals’ softon-crime judicial reforms have led to the unofficial decriminalization of hard drugs across our nation because it has become next to impossible to get convictions for those responsible for putting drugs on our streets.

There is hope in seeking help and while some provinces are working at increasing treatment, we need a federal government that will keep hard drugs off our streets, put gang leaders and drug kingpins behind bars, and ensure that there is treatment for those stuck in the grips of addiction.

That is why Poilievre and common-sense Conservatives are proposing practical measures that would help restore order to the chaos caused by these radical policies. Our initiatives include offering treatment for those battling addiction, jail and not bail for hardened criminals and those who are pushing these drugs on Canadians, and the recently announced Safe Hospitals Act which would ensure that hard drugs stay out of community spaces.

The lives and safety of Canadians must never be treated as an experiment, and we owe it to Canadians to offer hope, not slow death by poison. My Conservative colleagues and I are committed to restore the promise of what Canada can and should be.

Brent George of Camrose owns a 1951 Chevrolet flat bed truck.

“This truck is on a 1980 Chevy 4x4 frame with a 2007 5.3 litre LS motor in it. It’s an old truck with modern conveniences such as a newer motor and transmission in it,” shared Brent.

The Advance-Design is a light and medium duty truck series by Chevrolet, their first major redesign after the Second World War. Its GMC counterpart was the GMC New Design.

“I wanted an older truck with good drivability, something I can go down the highway as I please. I wanted to be able to go to car shows without stopping to work on it. I saw this truck and thought it looked cool. As a kid, I saw this truck parked in a field around Round Hill. I wanted to buy it and put it on a better frame. It ended up being a good project for me,” he explained.

It was billed as a larger, stronger, and sleeker design in comparison to the earlier AK Series.

“I’m thinking it was a two-ton, it was a grain truck originally. I didn’t have a box for it and they are hard to find. I decided to make a flat deck out of it and use it for hauling if

The automotive section of

George keeps 1951 body on the road

I need to. It was a simple solution for the time being.

I’ve grown to be fond of the flat deck,” said Brent.

First available on Saturday, June 28, 1947, these


In 1947, features were gasoline tank filler neck on passenger side of bed with no vent windows in doors. Hood side emblems read Chevrolet with “Thriftmaster” or “Loadmaster” underneath. Radios were first available in Chevrolet trucks as an “in dash” option.

In 1948, manual transmission shifter was mounted on the column instead of the floor.

Early 1949, gasoline tank was mounted upright behind seat in cab; filler neck aft of passenger door handle. Late 1949, hood side emblems no longer read Thriftmaster or Loadmaster, but were numbers that designate cargo capacity: 3100 on half ton, 3600 on three-quarter ton, 3800 on one ton.

In 1950, telescopic shock absorbers replaced leveraction type. Last year for driver’s side cowl vent, its handle is now flat steel, not a maroon knob as in previous years. In 1951, doors had vent windows. Mid-year change from nine-board bed to eight boards per bed. Last year for 80 mph speedometer, chrome window handle knobs and chrome wiper knob.

In 1952, outer door handles became push button type as opposed to the previous turn down style. Speedometer read 90 mph instead of 80, dashboard trim colour-matched instead of chrome. Mid-year, Chevrolet no longer used the 3100-6400 designation on the hood, changes to maroon window and wiper knobs.

trucks were sold with various minor changes over the years until March 25, 1955, when the Task Force Series trucks replaced the Advance-Design model.

“I left the outside as I found it. It took Mother Nature a long time to get it to look this way, so I thought about leaving it as is. I think it looks good that way, so why ruin it? It is easier to store it because it can be outside without worrying about the paint,” he laughed.

The same basic design family was used for all of its trucks including the Suburban, panel trucks, canopy express, and cab overs.

“I bought the truck in 2014, and I’ve been working on it for almost for 10 years, it’s been a process. I want to leave it as is and just enjoy driving it now. I have a two-wheel drive truck, so now I have a 4x4 to go with it. This truck is for ripping down the gravel road without worrying about it,” added Brent.

From 1947 until 1955,

Chevrolet trucks were number one in sales in the United States, with rebranded versions sold at GMC locations. While General Motors used this front end sheet metal and to a slightly less-

Nurse practitioners to help strengthen primary care

A new program will support nurse practitioners to work independently and provide Albertans with more access to primary care clinics.

Alberta’s government is committed to stabilizing, strengthening and improving the primary health care system. Every Albertan should be able to access primary care when and where they need it. To help achieve this goal, the government is expanding opportunities for nurse practitioners.

Through the Nurse Practitioner Primary Care Program, nurse practitioners will receive approximately 80 per cent of the compensation provided to family physicians who provide comprehensive primary care. Compensation will be determined based on panel size (the number of patients a nurse practitioner sees) and the number of patient care hours provided. The program will enable nurse practitioners to have comprehensive patient care autonomously and operate their own practices, or to practice autonomously in existing primary care clinics.

“Nurse practitioners are a welcome and integral part of the solution to improving access to primary health care services. Finalizing this funding model is an exciting step forward in our journey to refocus health care in Alberta, and I’m looking forward to this expansion of health care services,” said Premier Danielle Smith.

To be eligible for compensation through the $15-million program, nurse practitioners must meet a number of requirements, including committing to provide medically necessary primary care services, having a panel size of at least 900 patients, providing after-hours access on weekends, evenings or holidays, and accepting walk-in appointments as they build a panel size of 900 patients. The minimum panel size of 900 is consistent with the British Columbia model.

The nurse practitio-

ner program is structured to have higher patient attachment as compensation for nurse practitioners’ increases, as their panel size grows. This, in combination with the other incentives including the Panel Management Support Program, will help to support the more than 700,000 Albertans who are currently not attached to a primary health care provider.

“This program is exciting news for Albertans. It not only increases health care capacity in communities across the province but also provides more Albertans with access to a regular primary care provider and will help take pressure off the rest of the health system. Supporting nurse practitioners to do more of the work they are trained to do is another tool we’re using to stabilize and strengthen primary health care throughout Alberta,” added Adriana LaGrange, minister of health.

Clinics, communities and Primary Care Networks can partner with nurse practitioners who are just entering practice by applying for one-time mentorship funding. Each mentor is eligible for $10,000 during a nurse practitioner’s first 18 months to ensure a successful transition to independent practice.

“Many Albertans are still without access to a primary care provider. With 900 nurse practitioners in Alberta, there is an opportunity to significantly improve access to primary care services. This is the right next step in a marathon of change that is necessary for our primary care system. I look forward to continuing this work to ensure the success and viability of these practices and improving access to primary care services for Albertans,” shared Jennifer Mador, president, Nurse Practitioner Association of Alberta.

Nurse practitioners interested in practising through this program can now submit an expression of interest to Alberta Health. Each expression of interest

will be evaluated, and nurse practitioners who meet the requirements will be sent an application form. Through a $2 million grant over the next three years, the Nurse Practitioner Association of Alberta will help nurse practitioners throughout the application process, recruit nurse practitioners to participate in the program and support them as they plan to work independently in an existing practice or set up

their own clinics.

“By providing more options for rural and remote communities to access primary care by way of nurse practitioners, we will ensure all Albertans have the ability to get the care they need when and where they need it, ultimately providing better health outcomes,” commented Martin Long, parliamentary secretary for rural health.

“The new compensa-

tion model for nurse practitioners will strengthen Alberta’s primary care system and ensure more Albertans get access to care they need, when and where they need it. This is great news for patients and nurse practitioners,” said Chelsae Petrovic, parliamentary secretary for health workforce engagement.

Local competitors earn Winter Games medals

Several local athletes and artists went home with medals from the Alberta 55 plus Winter Games.

The Winter Games took on a new look in 2024, with no communities in Alberta able or willing to host the entire set of activities.

Therefore, communities from across the province hosted activities they could accommodate. Pickleball was held in Vermilion with the Camrose Pickleball club players bringing their “A” game.

Five-pin bowling and darts were held in St. Albert with Linda Stevenson bringing home a gold medal in darts. It was a sea of green (local zone colors) at bowling with the Camrose bowlers winning gold and silver medals.

Camrose held the culture event, showing talent in creative writing and art. Camrose also held duplicate bridge, euchre, snooker and floor curling at the Mirror Lake Centre.

Camrose and Bawlf floor curlers demonstrated their skills with gold and silver medals. More than 94 Alberta 55 plus members attended from as far north as High Prairie to as far south as Vulcan. Winners have the opportunity to advance to the Canada 55+ Games being held in Quebec City in August.

“Thanks to the volunteers and Zone 4 board that made this event successful and to the Day’s Inn for a wonderful banquet,” said Rosella Snopek, Zone 4 activity director.

Honouring a mother

It takes a great deal of courage and compassion to write a book about something as near and dear to one’s heart as the loss of a loved one.

But for Rian Burke, the decision to do so helped her in her own healing journey after the loss of her mother, Jackie, in December last year, but was also a way to reach out to other children experiencing grief.


“By the time it was March, I thought I really wanted to have the book out for a special occasion, whether it was for Father’s Day, to help my dad get through his grief or for Mother’s Day, but I didn’t think it was possible. My backup plan was maybe for their (her parents’) anniversary in September.”

Because she had not told her dad she was writ-

The children’s book, entitled, On My Side, is thoughtfully written and beautifully illustrated by Rian and tells the stories of a host of animals as they too move through challenges in their lives.

“I wrote it starting back in November,” said Rian. “It was something that came to my mind sitting by my mom’s side when she was at the Cross Cancer Hospital. I was really feeling discouraged, weighed down and defeated.”

After returning to her dorm at Grant McEwan University, where, at the time she was attending school, she laid back in bed and struggled getting to sleep.

“I just started writing and I thought to myself this is pretty cool. I left it for a while to deal with family things and then in January resumed writing.”

When she first began writing the story it was a way for her to deal with her own feelings of grief. “I honestly didn’t know what I was feeling. I was feeling defeated and I just didn’t know what to do, but I felt the urge to write and get it all out. So it kind of started like that.”

As she continued the writing she soon realized that her “story” was morphing into a children’s book, using a bit gentler language more conducive to a level of understanding for

ing the book, it was important that it launch on a special occasion.“I did tell my sisters updates here and there because I needed to tell someone.”

About mid-March, Rian began to realize that it was possible to have the book written, illustrated and self published by Mother’s Day, as a present for her mother.

“I worked every day from eight in the morning sometimes until two in the morning because I knew I wanted to get this done.”

When the writing was complete Rian began illustrating the book with adorable little woodland creatures featured in soft, full page colour backdrops.

“I have been drawing since I was little, and I knew I wanted to go into some sort of design. I have taken art classes since Grade 7 and started taking it seriously in High School, realizing this is something I can do with my life. Then when I found out that I could help people with it, I thought this is exactly what I want to do.”

Rian explained that the style of the book is not so much a narrative of what is happening to a character as it is words that complement the illustrations.

“The way I pictured it is these little forest animals all go through their little struggles in the forest, like getting rained on, and they

have to figure out how to get through it. By the end of the story they start realizing with the help of each other they can get to where they want to go. At the end they all end up watching the sunset together.”

She said that while the story somewhat eludes to journeys of grief it is more about hope for the future and that everything will be okay.

Rian always knew she wanted to write children’s

books, something her and her mother had wanted to do together. “She told me all these stories that I want to write in the future,” smiled Rian. “With any of my work I have always known I want to help people, that is what my mother taught me.

‘Have courage and be kind’, is our family motto.”

“In the beginning, I didn’t think I was going to publish, I was writing to help my mom, but I knew

I wanted to help people, make it feel like they are not alone. In times of grief it is really easy to feel like you are alone, everything is falling apart. But life goes on and I want to help people, to let them know it will be okay it is definitely hard but that doesn’t mean it is impossible.”

Rian’s book is currently available through Amazon.

Kay Woelk

Kay was born on September 7, 1939, to Gerhard and Tina Dirks, the twelfth of 17 children. She loved to share stories of her childhood on the family farm in Namaka, Alberta, and, with that many siblings, there was always something interesting going on.

In 1960, she captured the heart of a young man named Ed Woelk, when he overheard her singing in a trio one Sunday morning at Highland Mennonite Church in Calgary, Alberta. They married on October 6, 1962, and enjoyed 61 wonderful years of marriage. She was proud to have been an elementary school teacher, and her love of children was apparent whenever little ones were around.

Music played a central role in her life; she was the organist for Highland Mennonite Church for years, and in 1996, when they moved to their acreage just outside of Tofield, Alberta, she began conducting the Tofield Men’s Chorus. Later, after they’d moved into Tofield proper, she enjoyed directing the Lamplighters.

They were blessed with two daughters: Jennifer in 1963, and Shannon in 1970, who both deeply loved and admired her for her great kindness and generous spirit.

Kay’s faith in the Lord was a cornerstone of her life. She found solace and strength in her belief, and her faith was an inspiration to those around her.

She passed away suddenly on the evening of Thursday, May 9, 2024, in Tofield, at the age of 84.

Kay leaves to mourn her loving husband Ed; daughter Shannon (Ken) Matson and their children Kai and Beck; grandson Cody (Tammy) Reid and their son Ares; granddaughters Jessica Reid and Taylor Reid; great-grandson Calen Jackins; three sisters; two brothers; and many nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her beloved daughter Jennifer, her parents, eight brothers, four sisters, several in-laws, nieces and nephews.

Kay was a loving light in this world, and she will be truly and deeply missed.

Dennis Carl Peterson

It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Dennis Carl Peterson on May 12, 2024, at the age of 87.

Dennis was born on September 24, 1936, in Metiskow, Alberta. At the age of four, the family moved to a farm south of Camrose. Dennis graduated from Camrose Lutheran College while farming with his dad. In 1958, he met Ardis (Meadahl), whom he called “my love”, and they were married in 1960. They resided on the family homestead. In the early ’70s, the family moved east of Camrose, and Dennis went to work for Alberta Transportation. In 1994, Dennis and Ardis moved into Camrose and, when he turned 65, Dennis retired and went on to enjoy his dream job at Double Dam Golf Course, where Ardis joined him a few years later. With this position, they were able to enjoy travelling in the winter.

Dennis will forever be remembered for his love of sports, camping, hunting, fishing, farming and foremost, his love for his family.

He is survived by his loving wife Ardis; children Michele (Gord) Friesen and Mark (Denise Gordeyko) Peterson; brother-in-law Hugh Dennis; and sister-in-law, Pat Peterson. He leaves a legacy in his grandchildren Jennelle (Nolan) Christians, Tylor Friesen (Jessie) and Kelly Friesen; and his great-grandchildren Carter Christians, Bently Christians, Ainsleigh Christians, Hayleigh Friesen and Justin Friesen. He will be remembered fondly by numerous nieces and nephews. Dennis was predeceased by his parents Carl and Mamie (Nelson) Peterson; sisters Doris (Ben) Dennis, Vivian (Edward) Carlson and Lorraine Dennis; and brother Gordon Peterson.

At his request, there will be no funeral service.

Provincial grants provide vital funding

During an official ceremony held at the Camrose Women’s Shelter on May 10, Camrose MLA Jackie Lovely, on behalf of the Province of Alberta, announced two grants that will assist in continued services for both the Camrose Women’s Shelter and the Camrose Women’s Shelter Society in partnership with the Flagstaff Informed Response Sharing Team Society.

The first grant represents the Province’s continued support of the work women’s shelters do across the province to keep Albertans safe.

The Camrose Women’s Shelter Society was granted $96,426 to be added to the CWS’s annual operation funding.

The grant is intended to assist in increasing the number of funded beds so there are more safe spaces for those fleeing violence.

Minister of Children and Family Services, Searle Turton, said the funding will help support and stabilize some of the capacity and innovative services that are currently in place, focusing on meeting the high demand in rural areas.

In another announcement shared on May 10 at the Camrose Women’s Shelter, the Province of Alberta Ministry of Arts, Culture and Status of Women granted $248,013 to assist the Camrose Women’s Shelter Society, in partnership with the Flagstaff Informed Response Sharing Team

Society, with programming costs related to the East Central Alberta GenderBased Violence prevention initiative.

In a letter to Camrose Women’s Shelter, the Minister of Arts, Culture and Status of Women, Tanya Fir, noted her appreciation for the work of non-profit organizations in addressing the critical issue of genderbased violence across Alberta. She added that the Government of Alberta is proud to support organizations and work together to develop a 10-year strategy to end GBV and support survivors.

Little entrepreneur with a big heart

This is the third year for nineyear-old entrepreneur Nevaeh Graumann-Campbell to participate in the Lemonade Day, Northern Alberta event taking place this year on June 15 in various locations throughout the City of Camrose.

Nevaeh will be setting up shop this year on the service road in front of Smitty’s Restaurant hoping the ideal location will not only stir up foot traffic but that she will be able to turn her lemonade stand, named Nevaeh’s Lemonade, into a convenient drive-through location as well.

Nevaeh’s tagline is “A little piece of heaven” heaven being Nevaeh spelled backwards and her stand will be painted pink featuring a Taylor Swift theme with lots of shine, bling and glitter and a poster bearing the words “In my Lemonade Era”.

“This year, I am doing lavender lemonade called (no surprise) ‘Swif’ tea,” said Nevaeh, adding that she will likely be featuring some of last year’s flavours including peach and strawberry.

Nevaeh also took to heart the Lemonade Day organization’s mantra to spend some, save some and share some.

With the profits of this year’s business she hopes to be able to pur-

chase a little toolbox with a pen and mini stapler and she reinvested profits from previous years to making this year’s stand bigger.

But most importantly, as she has done in the past, she will be donating some of her profits. “I want to raise money for the Huntington Society because my grama passed away from it and my dad has it.”

Her generosity doesn’t end there either, Naveah said that one of the best parts of operating her Lemonade Stand business is to be able to give a glass away to someone who would like to try it but may not have the means to purchase it. “Everybody needs something,” said Navaeh.

Having completed her third year in the program and attending Lemon “U’niversity, Naveah admits that she has learned a lot about operating a business including: acquiring proper permits from the City, obtaining permission from property owners to set up her stand on private property and customer relations particularly speaking to people, which by all accounts she does very well.

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


State Your Price


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.

BRCF grants Changing Ways


The Battle River Community Foundation awarded a $1,000 grant to Changing Ways. Battle River Community Foundation presented Shannon Stolee, program director for Changing Ways, with the funds.

“On behalf of everyone at Changing Ways, a program of Camrose and District FCSS, we want to express our sincere gratitude to the Battle River Community Foundation for their generous donation to our family violence prevention program. Thanks to your contribution, we will be able to offer some mental health support for our youth who have been impacted by trauma. The Heroes program equips young people with the tools they need to navigate life’s challenges. Through engaging, hands-on learning activities, youth build confidence, character and integrity, leading them to live purposefully. They will leave the program with inner resilience to face life’s challenges,” shared Stolee.

The grant is funded from income earned in the Vivianne Tremblay Grue Fund, Darryl and Dyanne Schultz Family Fund, Jack and Lily Kirschman Fund and the Community Fund.

These types of funds allow the Foundation Board to match annual grant applicants with the interests donors wish to support.

The Battle River Community Foundation exists to support organizations in east central Alberta that benefit the local communities and positively impact the future.

Grants from the Battle River Community Foundation are primarily made possible through the generosity of individual do-

nors and organizations that have created endowment funds. The principal of these endowment funds is kept intact, and the income is made available annually to support local projects and organizations. Since it was founded in 1995, the Battle River Community Foundation has granted over $9,308,006 to support charitable activities in the Battle River Region.

Central Agencies Realty Home of the Week Wonderful vintage home

This vintage two-bedroom bungalow has great potential for the new homeowner or a semi to retired person/ couple. Located close to downtown amenities, schools and parks, this home is filled with charming character.

New flooring complements the beautifully arched interior doorways and display nooks as well as the widebayed windows.

The living room is flooded with warm natural light from the front window and a large pass-through opening in the wall creates even more flow of light.

The large open kitchen offers plenty of cabinet space with an area perfect for in-kitchen dining.

Two bedrooms, a four-piece bathroom and a spacious laundry area means plenty of room for main-floor living.

Head out through a set of french patio doors off the master bedroom

to the great outdoors, or the back patio door onto a good-sized raised deck where you can soak up the sunshine overlooking the backyard and a tranquil water feature.

The unfinished lower level of the home is where you can bring in your own wants and needs, be that another bedroom, media room and a bathroom to the already roughed-in area.

A one-car garage with back lane access is a wonderful asset and will keep your vehicle warm and clear in the winter months.

This charming home, located at 5419-51 Avenue and priced at $245,000, is all ready to move in with potential for developing even more space. Join Central Agencies Realty's newest member to the team, Mark Wrubleski, at an open house on Thursday, May 23 from 3:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. or, for a private viewing, contact Mark or Wally Wrubleski at:

Love Thy Neighbour

I just found out the neighbourhood had a meeting abou t the craz y person on the block It 's so weird that they didn' t invite me.

A picker truck is here to cut down a giant tree in our neighbour 's yard, so now my husband has to cancel all his plans for the day and stand by the window and watch.

I bet my neighbour is prett y excited that the spring wreath she's had on her front door since last spring is finally back in season.

Wife : "Our new neighbour always kisses his wife when he goes to work . Why don' t you ever do that?"

Husband : "Kiss her ? I barely know her!"

I yelled "Go to bed!" so loud that I pu t the neighbour 's kids to bed too

Ever y once in awhile, I go outside and run the vacuum cleaner over the driveway just to ensure the neighbours ne ver talk to me

Can you belie ve my neighbour rang my doorbell at 3:00 a.m.? Luckily I was still up playing the drums.

Neighbourhood Peer Pressure: Your neighbour just mowed their lawn and now you have 24 hours to respond.

It 's so rude when my neighbours are arguing, bu t not loud enough for me to make out what they're saying My husband accepted an invite to the neighbours' house for a barbecue and said we would bring a salad. A s if " we" has anything to do with it.

Well, today my neighbour spoke to me. So I did what I had to do. I strapped a monitor on my ankle , went outside with my pants on backwards and argued with a pine tree. That should hold them o for awhile

Nothing brings neighbours together like a few cop cars in front of another neighbour 's house whom no one likes I helped my neighbour ou t with something this morning and she said to me, "I could just marry you!"

I couldn' t belie ve it! You do something nice for someone and the y threaten to ruin your life in return.

My new neighbour has been breaking the law by making noise e ver y night after 11. Do I call the police abou t this or should I confront the newborn directly?

I just got a text from my retired neighbour that the chocolate chip cookies my daughter requested have just come out of the oven

My neighbour is always yelling at his son Franklin Ever y day he yells at him to come inside. Tonight , I heard him say, "Franklin! Do NOT eat that dead mouse!" Turns out my neighbour has a dog named Franklin

My husband got a new barbecue and to establish his dominance over all the other neighbourhood men, he took the huge box with the picture on it to the curb even though our garbage day is not till Friday

I didn' t want to get into an argument with our neighbour, so I subtly renamed our WiFi "HE Y JAMES! STOP CUTTING YOUR GRASS BEFORE 8 A .M.!"

Nex t door neighbours , the Smiths and the Jones, haven' t been getting along. Mr. Smith leaves his dog outside all day and the dog never stops barking. Finally, after not being able to hear himself think , Mr. Jones tells his wife: "I' ve had it!" and he stomps outside. Upon returning Mrs. Jones says : "I can still hear the dog barking. What have you been doing?"

Mr. Jones replies, “I put their dog in our back yard. Let 's see how they like it!”

I got this note from my neighbours today: "A group of your concerned neighbours wish to announce that the one -way frosted glass in your bathroom is facing the wrong way." I'm prett y sure I need to move now.
