Happy hunting Jeff Gaye Spot a Typo? Coffee s On Us. The Liberation of Holland and VE Day In Canada s history, our military history in particular, it s impossible to identify our finest hour: a single event that we can point to and say this is who we are. Where to begin? Vimy Ridge comes to mind, as do the many victories and setbacks throughout the muddy, bloody battles of World War I. Where else? The Battle of Britain? Hong Kong? The Battle of the Atlantic? Our rout at Dieppe? Our victorious campaign through Italy? All these, and more, stand as examples of courage and sacrifice Canadians giving everything they have in the soul-crushing misery of global war. Last week was the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Holland, when Canadians freed the people of the Netherlands from Nazi occupation. This moment stands out because it symbolizes Canada s cause in all the other conflicts: to take risks and make sacrifices for the sake of others. Everything our navy, army and air force had done to that point was directed toward the liberation of Europe, and the march into Holland wouldn t have been possible without the previous years of effort. The defining difference may be that our soldiers finally came face-to-face with the people they had freed, and that they were on hand to receive their gratitude. That gratitude lives on in the close friendship that still exists between Canada and Holland. For the grandchildren of the liberators, it can be almost embarrassing to accept the still-fervent thanks for something our generation wasn t personally involved in. But if we weren t part of the liberation of Holland, it is part of us. When the Dutch celebrate our veterans and honour our dead more generously and more solemnly than we do we should thank them for reminding us of what it should mean to be Canadian.

3 News Tuesday, May 12, 2015 The Courier News & Publishing Page 3 Coming Home to Lend a Hand LCdr Kelly Williamson, Senior Public Affairs Officer, Canadian Disaster Assistance Response Team K a t h m a n d u, Nepal Cpl Yassabi Siwakoti, a Language and Cultural Advisor (LCA) with Canada s Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART), explained to residents of an internally displaced persons (IDP) camp in Bhaktapur, Nepal, how to operate an emergency hand-cranked radio last week. An eight-year veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), Cpl Siwakoti was born in Nepal s capital city, Kathmandu, and immigrated to Canada with his family in Before the earthquake, Cpl Siwakoti was working as an Aviation Technician with 436 Squadron at 8 Wing Trenton. His connection with Nepal, his proficiency in the Nepali language and a desire to lend a hand led him to volunteer his services to the DART as an LCA. Cpl Siwakoti arrived in Nepal on May 4 and immediately began to support DART operations. He is working closely with the DART s Civil-Military Cooperation teams and is playing a vital role helping them coordinate grass-roots initiatives. He has also accompanied the teams on a number of visits to IDP camps throughout Kathmandu and has been critical to communicating with and understanding the concerns of local residents. Siwakoti says it was a relief for him to be able to deploy with the DART and to play a role in Canadian relief efforts. The CAF is providing meaningful assistance through the deployment of the DART. They are providing aid to those in need of assistance and are a credit to Canada. Canada is supporting the government of Nepal as it rebuilds and enhances its capacity to respond to the disaster. The DART is equipped to conduct emergency relief operations for up to 40 days until local authorities, national organizations and international aidagencies are able to sustain long-term recovery efforts. Working alongside local authorities and humanitarian relief partners, DART acts as a stabilization measure until regular services are restored.

6 Page 6 The Courier News & Publishing Tuesday, May 12, 2015 National Road Safety Week May 11 to 17 W TEME Road and Vehicle Safety Distracted Driving is any activity that could divert a person s attention away from the primary task of driving and it s the leading cause in 30 per cent of all collisions. All distractions endanger driver, passenger, and bystander safety. Distractions can include: Texting Using a cell phone or smartphone Eating and drinking Talking to passengers Personal grooming Reading, including maps Using a navigational system Watching a video Adjusting a radio, CD player, or MP3 player The best way to end distracted driving is to educate those on the road about the danger it poses. Let s talk about texting. Because text messaging requires the driver s visual, manual have travelled 467 m and cognitive attention, (at 50 km/h on dry road it is the most alarming surface). What did you miss distraction yet everyone while you were distracted? seems to be doing it. It takes on average Did you miss that five seconds to read a vehicle pulling out of a text message.

To road. Drivers must be reply to that same text message takes on average aware that there are 33 seconds during which hazards present in both time your vehicle will urban and rural driving environments. With all the potential hazards on the road, is being distracted or inattentive worth the risk? Being distracted or inattentive affects your ability to recognize a hazard, react in time and avoid the hazard. Many drivers view driving as a simple everyday task that requires minimal attention. The fact is, driving is a complex task that requires your full attention every time you get behind the wheel. Distracted driving is a deadly behaviour. By improving our understanding of how mental and physical distractions impair our ability to drive we can eliminate needless crashes that cause death and injury on our roads every day. Road and Vehicle Safety reminds everyone to drive safe. Keep your mind on the task of driving, keep your eyes on the road, and keep your hands on the wheel Semaine nationale de la sécurité sur la route, mai Sécurité automobile et routière de TgEm ERE On appelle distraction au volant toute activité risquant de détourner l attention d un conducteur de sa tâche principale, soit conduire. Ce problème constitue la cause de 30 % des collisions. Toute distraction met en danger la sécurité du conducteur, des passagers et des passants. La distraction peut être causée par les activités suivantes : Envoyer des messages textes Utiliser un téléphone cellulaire ou intelligent Manger ou boire Parler avec des passagers S arranger Lire, par exemple une carte Utiliser un système de navigation Regarder une vidéo Ajuster la radio, un lecteur de disques compacts ou un lecteur MP3 La meilleure façon de mettre fin à la distraction au volant est de sensibiliser les automobilistes aux dangers qu elle représente.

8 Personnel Support Programs Page 8 The Courier News & Publishing Tuesday, May 12, 2015 Exercise Your Muscles, Benefit Your Brain Lucy MacDonald, Strengthening the Forces Most Canadians understand that regular exercise is essential for keeping their bodies fit and healthy. Unfortunately, many people don t realize that regular exercise also offers their brains a huge number of benefits. In recent years, scientists have determined how regular exercise can boost brain function. What they discovered is that regardless of your age or your fitness level, making time for exercise provides some serious mental health benefits. Some of the many benefits include improvements to selfimage and confidence, better sleep, and a better mood. Exercise also helps mental performance by improving memory, learning capacity, creativity and problemsolving. How hard and how often do you have to exercise to see mental health benefits? The good news is that these benefits occur in people who walk as little as 30 minutes per day, three times a week. You don t even have to do all 30 minutes at the same time you can break it up into three 10-minute walks. Stress reduction and mood improvement can occur almost immediately after exercising a phenomenon that runners call the runner s high. But as with most things in life, too much of a good thing can be bad for you. People who train too hard, too often or for too long can actually hurt rather than help their mental health. Despite all the research, we still don t know exactly how exercise promotes mental health. One popular theory is that exercise releases a number of feel-good chemicals into the brain. These include serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine. Other studies have shown that inflammation has a negative effect on mental health, and sensible levels of exercise have an anti-inflammatory effect on the body. It is likely that exercise promotes mental health through several different mechanisms. Regardless of the mechanism, it is clear that regular exercise has a lot to offer every member of the Canadian Armed Forces mentally and physically. So next time you are having trouble motivating yourself to do a workout, try reminding your brain of what you gain whenever you train. Exercise truly is medicine.

9 Tuesday, May 12, 2015 The Courier News & Publishing Page 9 Grads Eligible for CWO Stauffer Scholarships WCWO Bob Viel The CWO Peter Stauffer Memorial Scholarships were created by the Medley CFB Society in honour of Peter Stauffer, the Wing Chief Warrant Officer and an active member of the Society from July 2000 until July CWO Stauffer passed away due to cancer September 19, The Society presents $2,500 scholarships in his name each academic year. In June 2005, the first two $1,000 CWO Peter Stauffer Memorial Scholarships were presented by Mrs. Rae Stauffer to honour her late husband s memory. To date, the Medley CFB Society has presented fifteen scholarships to deserving students. CWO Stauffer was dedicated to developing and strengthening the character of the military family and improving the quality of life for the community in general. He was well-known for his commitment and support to the entire Cold Lake community, and was a strong advocate of community participation throughout his tenure as WCWO. The application process for the Memorial Scholarships is open to all graduating high school students who are dependants of personnel currently serving at 4 Wing in the CAF (Regular or Reserve), or as DND or NPF employees. The students must be planning on pursuing full-time postsecondary studies at a recognized educational institution (academic or technical), must have maintained a consistent academic standing and have contributed to the community in a demonstrable manner. Students should note that a consistent academic standing does not indicate they must be on the honour roll. If you have maintained a consistent grade point average whether at a C level or an A level you meet that eligibility requirement. Peter Stauffer never insisted that personnel be the best only that they do their best and try to better themselves. The most important application requirement is a 500-word essay on either Leadership, Quality of Life, or Community Spirit. These values defined Peter Stauffer and were the ones he most encouraged others to develop. It is critical that applying students provide a clear and well thought out presentation of what their selected quality means to them and illustrate that quality s influence in their own lives. The Medley CFB Society is very proud to sponsor the CWO Peter Stauffer Memorial Scholarships for dependants of 4 Wing personnel and eagerly anticipate the application submissions we receive each year. We encourage all eligible students to apply for these scholarships. The deadline for this year s submissions is June 12. If you have questions regarding the CWO Peter Stauffer Memorial Scholarships and the application process, please contact the Vice- Chair of the Medley CFB Society, WCWO Bob Viel at telephone ext 8113 or Bourses Commémoratives Adjuc Peter Stauffer Adjuc Ere Bob Viel Les Bourses commémoratives Adjuc Peter Stauffer ont été créées par la Société BFC Medley en l honneur de l Adjudant-chef de l escadre Pierre Stauffer, membre actif de la Société de juillet 2000 à juillet L Adjuc Stauffer est décédé en raison d un cancer le 19 septembre La Société remet annuellement en son nom $ en bourses d études. En juin 2005, les deux premières bourses commémoratives Adjuc Peter Stauffer de $ ont été présentées par Mme Rae Stauffer. À ce jour, la Société BFC Medley a présenté quinze bourses à des étudiants méritants. L Adjuc Stauffer s est consacré à développer et à renforcer le caractère de la famille militaire et à améliorer la qualité de vie de la communauté en général. Il était bien connu pour son engagement et son soutien à l ensemble de la communauté de Cold Lake, et a été un ardent défenseur de la participation de la communauté tout au long de son mandat comme Adjuc Ere. Le processus de demande de bourse commémorative est ouvert à tous les finissants du secondaire qui sont personne à charge du personnel des FAC servant actuellement à la 4e Escadre (régulier ou réserviste), ou employés du MDN ou des FNP. Les étudiants doivent vouloir poursuivre des études postsecondaires à temps plein dans un établissement d enseignement reconnu (universitaire ou technique), maintenir des résultats scolaires cohérents et contribuer à la communauté de façon démontrable. Les étudiants doivent comprendre que par résultats scolaires cohérents, on ne veut pas dire qu ils doivent figurer au «tableau d honneur». Tout étudiant qui maintient une moyenne cumulative cohérente qu il s agisse d un C ou 4 Wing Community Library d un A satisfait à cette exigence d admissibilité. Peter Stauffer n a jamais insisté sur le fait qu un récipiendaire soit «le meilleur» mais plutôt qu il «fasse de son mieux» et qu il tente de s améliorer. L exigence la plus importante de la demande est un essai de 500 mots sur le leadership, la qualité de vie ou l esprit communautaire. Ce sont les qualités qui définissaient Peter Stauffer et qu il encourageait le plus les autres à développer. Il est essentiel que les étudiants qui font une demande offrent une présentation claire et bien pensée de ce que signifie pour eux la qualité qu ils ont sélectionné et qu ils démontrent l influence de celle-ci dans leur vie. La Société BFC Medley est très fière de commanditer les Bourses commémoratives Adjuc Peter Stauffer accessibles aux personnes à charge de la 4e Escadre et elle anticipe avec impatience les résultats des demandes qu elle reçoit chaque année.

Jeff Gaye The Kingsway Clinic of the Cold Lake Primary Care Network (PCN) is running near its capacity, but no-show patients are affecting its overall efficiency. Patients who fail to show up for appointments, or who cancel at the last minute, are causing inconvenience for other patients, says Sheryl McCormick, the PCN s Executive Director. If people don t let us know they re not showing, there s no chance of getting someone else in, she said. The problem exists at both PCN locations. Kingsway Clinic, located in the Canex mall, is open to the general public so military families are not specifically to blame, McCormick said. But with 262 no-shows and 55 No-Shows Affect Clinic s Efficiency last-minute cancellations at PCN clinics in the last four months, it s a problem that she says needs to be addressed. Our goal is to provide quality care in a timely manner, she said. The health care system is an easy target for finding fault over ease of access, but sometimes it s not the system that s failing patients. The missed appointments add up to days worth, and that can mean significant delays for patients who need to see one of the PCN s nurse practitioners. We just ask patients to be courteous, McCormick said. Kingsway had 13 appointments booked one day and there were eight no-shows out of the 13. That s eight other patients who could have been seen more quickly if we had been called in time to book someone in. Kingsway Clinic is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Patients must make an appointment to see a nurse practitioner during those hours. There is also a physician on hand for NO SHOW NO walk-in patients (no appointments necessary) Wednesday evenings.

When one part is not healthy, it can affect the whole person. Therefore, it examines the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual elements of a person and how they are interconnected to maintain optimal health. As one of my doctor friends said to me, A doctor s role is to cure diseases through medication, treatment and external intervention. It is what the chaplain does that heals. External intervention may include professionals like the social worker, the psychologist, and the chaplain as healers, where healing restores the balance and harmony to the body, mind and spirit. They are essential to combat the negative influences of disease, loss or life changes.
