“there are no hopeless kids, only kids without hope.”


Interview with Linda Roussel Executive Director “Kids on Track” “Kids On Track believes that “there are no hopeless kids, only kids without hope.” Linda, that statement sounds very inclusive of kids that may have personal struggles or family issues. Can you tell us more? Kids On Track is a faith based community organization with a passion to offer hope, direction and support to children, youth and parents. Our programs make a difference by providing mentorship, building resiliency, a place to belong, guidance and support…It is our hope that youth will be empowered to make healthy lifestyle choices and become positive, responsible, contributing citizens. and the history of KOT - you are the founder correct? Yes, I am the founder! I started Kids On Track with four other

community parents in 1992. We all recognized that there was a lack of activities and supportive mentoring clubs for kids in this community. We simply started asking community kids if they wanted to come out on Saturday afternoon and within 3 months we had 70 kids! Since then we have added programs and volunteers and finally staff.

You see a lot of the issues first hand…

The challenges of family breakup, poverty, and resettlement may seem insurmountable. What we do is provide programs that build trust and stability for children and youth. KOT provides an opportunity for all children to develop assets that in turn will help them cope successfully in the face of stress-related or During this time I continued adversarial situations. working as a community health nurse.

workers. We are now seeing the kids we served come back as volunteers and parents! I think this quote says it all: “I've been with Kids On Track since I was 4 years old. The program has played a huge part in my life. As a kid attending the program I always felt welcome and accepted. As the child of an immigrant family this was huge. Kids On Track is a fun, safe place for all kids. For the past 2 summers I have been on summer staff. This was an awesome experience and helped me develop as a leader. I am graduating high school this year (2009) and plan to pursue post- secondary education. Kids On Track will always have a place in my heart. It helped me become the person that I am today.” Allisha-age 18 Look for more Kids On Track Next Issue.

Editor's Vent Last month I extolled the virtues of our summer months, I now feel it necessary to take them down a peg. Winter isn't all bad...there aren't any mosquito's buzzing around your head, or local inebriated individuals out in the backyard blasting Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody at 4:00am, and the ruts, ice and windrows are generally pretty good at keeping the local speed racer from treating your street corner like a section of the Edmonton Indy. Anyway's, back on topic. It's been just over a year since I was given the opportunity to assume the editorship of the SPURR, not a stop I saw coming when I committed myself to volunteering some time with the Glenwood Community League two years ago, but it's an opportunity I've definitely appreciated on what's been an educational, and at times, strange road as a community volunteer. Over the past year the SPURR has said goodbye to long-time contributor Sheri Landry (It Makes Cents), and formed a new partnership with Grant MacEwan's student

above, thank you.


we can and it’s FREE.


Finally, a thank you in advance to those of you who are going to read and contribute to the SPURR and the communities we serve over the next year. We'll see you for our summer edition in July and be back again in September.

I can't believe that it is already June. Now that all of that snow is gone, time just seems to be rushing by. We were just thinking about planting gardens and flower beds and now it is time to worry about the weeds and mosquitoes. I would like to thank all of our wonderful volunteers for the many hours that they spend helping to organize events, plant flowers, shop, and help with everything that is asked of you. Thanks to all of you for making all of our special events so successful. You are all priceless. Thank you. Merci. Danke. June and July are usually very busy months for families so we have nothing planned for these two months. We are still having a Surprise Event in August, so stay tuned and keep an eye on the next edition of the SPURR.

Please send us your date sensitive event information, we would love to include what

driven, West Edmonton Local. We've said goodbye to a talented public servant in former Jasper Place Revitalization Coordinator Wendy Kinsman, and welcomed Steve Gauley into the role as the JPR's voice in the SPURR. The SPURR is an outlet for the community at large, and I'd like to thank the volunteers of the Glenwood, West JP, High Park, Mayfield, Canora, and BritanniaYoungstown Community Leagues for the time they take from their daily lives to advocate for their communities, host events, and represent their communities in the SPURR.

While most people reading this may not live in Canora, the dedication of the volunteers of Canora's Park Watch deserve recognition. I'd like to thank Michele Hebert (The Dirty Gardener) for continuing to be a staple of the SPURR, Diane Kereluk (representing the Stony Plain BRZ) to whom the SPURR owes its creation and who continues to be one of our strongest contributors, as well, I'd like to acknowledge our local constables from the Edmonton Police Service who have authored “The Beat”.

We will be holding another "Meet the Police" night on September 20

Everyone is invited to come out and join us. New people are always welcome and necessary in planning events to keep our parks well used and safe.

Community Clean Up June 11, 2011 Cleanliness has been identified as a concern in the community. The City of Edmonton Jasper Place Revitalization in partnership with the Stony Plain Road Business Revitalization Zone and the following community leagues: Canora, Glenwood, West Jasper/Sherwood and Britannia Youngstown are organizing a community clean up event on June 11, 2011. This event is also being supported by other community partners and volunteers including Edmonton. Over 100 youth will be volunteering on foot picking

up garbage within the four neighbourhoods and along Stony Plain Road

Community Clean Up Details Saturday June 11, 2011 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

As shown on the map, garbage bins will be strategically placed throughout the four neighbourhoods between 149th and 170th Streets. The placement of the garbage bins is intended to encourage as many community residents to participate in the clean up event as possible.

• Large item drop off available for residents and businesses of Canora, Glenwood, West Jasper/ Sherwood and Britannia Youngstown. • There is a 5 item per load limit. • No renovation, construction or household garbage will be accepted. • No household hazardous materials, such as paint, cleaners,

batteries or oil will be accepted. These items should be taken to an Eco-Station. Call 311 for the locations of Eco-Stations throughout Edmonton. • Residents are reminded to secure their load properly by tying items to their vehicles and covering loose material with a trap. Under Bylaw 5590 unsecured loads are subject to a $250 fine. For additional information, or if you would like to volunteer contact Steve Gauley at 944-5417, or email steve.gauley@edmonton.ca.



By this time of the gardening season in Edmonton, you should have your annuals in the garden, and your hanging baskets and pots all done up and ready to perform their magic throughout the summer. But, how do you keep those gorgeous plants at their best? It is predicted that we are in for a long,

hot summer in Edmonton. Keeping your plants well hydrated is the first priority. Water all baskets and pots at least once a day, more if it is really hot and dry, and water early in the mornings and in the early evenings when evaporation is less likely to occur. Thoroughly soak each pot/basket to the point of water dripping out the bottom. On a weekly basis, add a plant food additive to your watering can or attach an automatic feeding/watering attachment to your garden hose. If you had potted up your plants with a soil mixture that had added waterretentive polymers, you may need to only water once a day.

For lawns, water once a week using a frisbee turned upside down on the lawn. Once the frisbee is full to the top with water, turn off the hose. Lawns like a deep thorough watering only once a week. Any more than that, and you are wasting your money and time as grass has a fairly shallow root system. To keep the blooms on your annuals looking great, walk about your garden about once a day and pick off the dead blooms. Petunias tend to get "leggy" after a few weeks, and can be pinched right back to about 8 inches from the root. They will

spring right back with abundant blooms again in a week or two. Keep an eye out for pests, using an insecticidal soap to get rid of those nasty bugs. A little preventative maintenance goes a long way to keep your plants at their best. Take the time to just sit and enjoy your garden. Make yourself a pot of tea, grab a good book or magazine, and just relax, watch the butterflies and dragonflies, listen to the birds. You put so much time, effort and money into your garden; now is the time to enjoy it.
