Friday, January 06, 2017

Juris Graney, Postmedia Network Dec 30, 2016, Last Updated: 11:54 PM ET A hitchhiker killed early Wednesday near Sherwood Park was heading home to Camrose to patch things up after a family fight, his sister says. Passersby found Phoenix Taypayosatum, 28, shortly before 4 a.m. at the intersection of Highway 21 and Township Road 520 after being struck by an unknown northbound vehicle. His younger sister, Autumn Taypayosatum, said in an interview Friday that her brother, his girlfriend and their 11-month-old daughter had been staying with her in Camrose until Dec. 14. Her brother hitchhiked to Edmonton after a family fight and was returning to his sister's home when the accident happened, she said. "He was understanding, very loving and we always kept in contact when he was gone," she said. "That whole time he was gone in Edmonton he kept in contact with me." She said her brother was always hitchhiking; in fact, when she was 18, the pair hitchhiked from their home in Winnipeg to Regina and then to Edmonton. Soon after arriving in Edmonton, she moved to Camrose. "He was a free spirit," she said. "He was a traveller. He hitchhiked all...

Hitchhiker killed in county - Sherwood Park News

Friday, January 06, 2017

A hitchhiker killed early last Wednesday in Strathcona County was heading home to Camrose to patch things up after a family fight, his sister says. Passersby found Phoenix Taypayosatum, 28, shortly before 4 a.m. at the intersection of Highway 21 and Township Road 520, just south of Sherwood Park, after being struck by an unknown northbound vehicle. His younger sister, Autumn Taypayosatum, said in an interview last Friday that her brother, his girlfriend and their 11-month-old daughter had been staying with her in Camrose until Dec. 14. Her brother hitchhiked to Edmonton after a family fight and was returning to his sister’s home when the collision happened, she said. “He was understanding, very loving and we always kept in contact when he was gone,” she said. “That whole time he was gone in Edmonton, he kept in contact with me.” She said her brother was always hitchhiking; in fact, when she was 18, the pair hitchhiked from their home in Winnipeg to Regina and then to Edmonton.

Scholarship recipients flock to Opus 37 - St. Albert Gazette

Tuesday, December 27, 2016

When McCormack was 12, economic reasons forced the family to move to Alberta. She grew up in Wainwright and completed undergraduate music studies in vocal performance at Camrose’s Augustana College. McCormack moved up to Edmonton in 2010 and for four years was a vital part of St. Albert Parish’s youth and music ministry. Her involvement was extensive, selecting music for all occasions including masses, funerals and weddings, coordinating schedules, leading children’s choirs and the youth ministry. In 2014 McCormack applied to the Centre for Opera Studies (COSI) in Sulmona, Italy to join a month-long comprehensive summer training program that immerses emerging opera artists into the complete world of opera. She studied under vocal trainer Timothy Noble, among others. But it was his influence that prompted McCormack to steer her vocal education outside Canada. Noble, a former baritone with mentoring ties to the Canadian Opera Company, is a distinguished professor at Indiana University. “We hit it off in Italy. I connected with him and I wanted to work with him. I took lessons every day from him and learned the technical knowledge I needed. He was very encouraging without trying to control me. He was very helpful in helping me plan the next steps,” McCormack said. The reality of paying a $26,000 annual tuition caused some anxiety. Indiana offered the emerging Alberta singer a substantial scholarship. But McCormack still needed an additional $5,000 plus living expenses. An application to the Anne Burrows Music Foundation, netted McCormack a $10,000 scholarship for the first year and $5,000 to complete the second. As a way of showing her gratitude, the aspiring mezzo is delighted to perform for an appreciative home crowd. “It’s wonderful to be part of a community of people who are kind, supportive and generous.” Emerging classical guitarist Travis Luckert, a 2015 St. Albert Rotary Music Festival scholarship winner and two-time performer at St. Albert Chamber Music Society series, is also on the program. Michael Massey, conductor of the Edmonton Youth Orchestra and Order of Canada recipient, is guest pianist and will accompany four performers.

The builder of peace - St. Albert Gazette

Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Blackfoot called him Aahsosskitsipahpiwa, or “the good heart.” Lacombe would use that reputation to stop many conflicts. In 1865, for example, while lodged with the Blackfoot near Camrose and the Battle River, Lacombe awoke to find his hosts in the midst of a pitched battle with Cree forces, MacGregor notes. Bullets whizzing all around, Lacombe mounted a ridge, cross and flag in hand, and called out to the Cree in their language, identifying himself in an attempt to convince them to cease-fire. A ricochet caught him in the shoulder and grazed his head, knocking him flat in the snow. The Blackfoot rallied, and one of their warriors shouted at the Cree, “Stop you dogs. Have you not done enough? You have shot your blackrobe!” The Cree, realizing what they had done, immediately broke off their attack, no doubt s...

Convoy evokes Canadian pride in North Bay - Vermilion Standard

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

Monday afternoon.Caron, of North Bay, was waiting in the parking lot at Motion Canada on Gormanville Road for almost 100 vehicles, from small cars to big rigs, to pull in on their journey from Alberta to Parliament Hill with a message for federal politicians. Alexandre Caron "This is about more than pipelines," Caron says. "This is about government. This is about all the provinces having different issues. It's about getting back the political process."The United We Roll Convoy for Canada, a caravan of transports, work vehicles and personal automobiles, left Red Deer, Alta., last Thursday bound for Ottawa and a protest on Parliament Hill Tuesday."The media and the government have divided the provinces," Caron says. "We want to fight for our freedoms and our rights. We want fair government.""We are watching Justin Trudeau slowly strip away every right we had," Sarah Zaldinger, of Timmins, said as about two dozen supporters waited for the convoy to arrive, sharing updates on when the parade would roll into town."He is stripping the future of my children and their children and their children," Zaldinger said. "They are being set up for failure. Their rights, their future, will all be destroyed if we don't stand up now."Although she was not part of the convoy to North Bay, Zaldinger was going to join it Tuesday morning for the rally in Ottawa as part of her own objective of "direct democracy."And direct democracy is possible, she said.Zaldinger pointed to a recent Amber Alert sent to cellphone users across the province ...
