Holiday Disasters Two families displaced after frigid winter fires

FIREFIGHTERS WORK IN -37 TEMPERATURES Photo Courtesy Regional Fire Chief’s Office

This log home Northeast of Bruderheim tragically went up in flames on Dec. 28 when it appears that sparks from the fireplace may have set the roof on fire. Firefighters from Bruderheim, Lamont, Strathcona County, Andrew and St. Michael were on the scene in dangerously cold -37C temperatures. The house was completely destroyed but there were no injuries to the family, which was even able to retrieve some of its most valuable personal possessions. This was one of two fires over the Christmas holiday season in the Lamont County area. Story on Page 2.

Opinion Quid pro quo LETTER TO THE EDITOR This newspaper has, from time to time, been asked to explain to businesses, organizations or citizens exactly how things have worked in our little publishing world. The simple explanation: We're a business. We aren't community-owned. We make money on advertising and printing. We don’t make money selling the paper. Newspaper sales go completely to Canada Post, thousands every month. Newspapers write stories so people will read them and in doing so notice our clients’ advertisements, and in turn support them. News costs money. Ads make money. We can only cover news because of the communityminded businesses, organizations and people who buy advertising and printing from us. We thank them. If we are covering your event it is because of these organizations who advertise with us. If you also advertise your event with us, it helps us pay for labour, mileage, printing and mailing involved in giving your event the publicity it deserves. The greatest gall of all, is from people upset that we didn’t get to their event to take pictures and do coverage, yet those people never advertised the event in question with us. They didn’t see the value in advertising with us, yet they do see the value in the publicity we give them. It’s cognitive dissonance. There is an old Latin phrase "quid pro quo", which in English basically means "one hand washes the other" or "you scratch my back, and I'll scratch yours," "tit for tat," or "give and take." In other words, you help us - we help you. Small town economies operate on this basis, also called "shopping local.” If you spend your money in town it will come back to you in one form or another. Spent in Edmonton or online, and it is most certainly gone forever. It’s important that our communities continue to remember that all local businesses need your support - including the newspaper. The next time you only advertise free online, ask yourself who from Facebook or Kijiji will be spending their own money to come to your event, take pictures, do stories, and then give you free publicity? Most often, we do. Kerry Anderson

Shutdown of coal is bad for Alberta NDP and Prime Minister being duped by other nations accellerating coal production More than two years after the election of the provincial NDP and federal Liberal governments, there’s no doubt Albertans have faced an unprecedented attack against industry and the jobs they support. New carbon-taxes, tax-hikes on oil and gas, stifling red-tape and regulation have been damaging enough, but the accelerated shutdown of coal will punish workers and communities around the Edmonton region.  The timeline for a 2030 shutdown, first put forward by the NDP, then applauded by the Trudeau government, comes with a heavy price. For coal generation facilities in Parkland County and Leduc County it means 1600 jobs are at risk, on top of another 2100-plus indirect jobs that may be affected. In November 2017, the NDP promised a $40 million transition package for these workers, but that’s barely a drop in the bucket compared to the potential $200+ million lost in annual GDP for the regional economy, not to mention the tax revenue that will vanish. And it comes with a direct hit to Alberta taxpayers too. Closing down facilities like the Sundance, Keephills and Genesee power plants will cost $1.3 billionpaid for by you through the carbon-tax - not to mention the billions of dollars the NDP is now taking on in debt to cover losses from their Ontario-inspired exper-

iments to our electricity grid. The NDP are taking 5,300 megawatts of affordable and reliable electricity offline throughout Alberta in the hopes that windmills, solar panels and natural gas can cover the shortfall. This plan makes no sense! Albertans are shelling out billions of dollars to shut down productive and affordable electricity in Alberta, all while hard-working Albertans and small communities are being taken to the cleaners. In communities like Leduc and Parkland County, tax revenue will be impacted significantly, and these costs will barely be recovered through tax-increases on small businesses and residents. Meanwhile the NDP hands out cheques to every special interest group except the communities that are being devastated. It’s time we hold the politicians in charge of this mess accountable. Our Liberal environment minister Catherine McKenna has gone out of her way to brag about her own war on jobs during her recent junket to Germany.  She claims: “The markets have moved on, the world has moved on, coal is not coming back” and yet, the world hasn’t moved on, with the four largest economies, China, Japan, Germany and the United States actually increasing coal production.  The fact of the matter is, while champagne socialists in downtown Ottawa and Edmonton toast

the destruction of Alberta’s responsible coal industry, the top economies of the world are doubling down on coal. Meanwhile workers and communities around Alberta are losing their lifeblood and livelihoods because of our reckless provincial and federal governments.  If we want to be serious about helping to reduce global CO2 emissions, while protecting wellpaying jobs, we should promote the technologies used at the Keephills generator in Parkland County.   These facilities have significantly reduced CO2 emissions and generate some of the cleanest coal electricity in the world. We should extend the coal phase-out on these state-of-the-art, 21st  century generators to allow companies to recoup their investments, saving taxpayers billions that could be better used to support renewable energy, research and technology and other worthwhile initiatives. The NDP, after first coming up with the idea to shut down coal, are now trying to claim their hands are tied by the federal government. But that’s simply not true. Governments in Saskatchewan and Nova Scotia have both successfully negotiated delaying Ottawa’s 2030 timeline to put coal plants offline. If the NDP wanted to fight for working people in this province, they would have done the same thing; instead they’ve given Trudeau’s plan and policies their personal stamp of approval. While it’s no doubt popular and chic in the circles Minister McKenna and the NDP hang out in to take runs at our coal workers and communities, they should instead go out to meet the community leaders and workers their ideological shutdown of coal will hurt the most. Our communities and the people of Alberta deserve nothing less. - MP Dane Lloyd Sturgeon River - Parkland

щасливого Різдва Ukrainian Christmas celebrated KERRY ANDERSON Sunday, January 7 was Ukrainian Christmas, one of the most important Orthodox holidays. Lamont County’s many Ukrainian residents spent Ukrainian Christmas in the family circle and with the loved ones in their warm homely atmosphere. Some families celebrated Christmas with special Ukrainian traditions: • The Christian feast is known for the atmosphere, devotion and spirituality. • Nativity scenes representing the Biblical story of Jesus Christ’s birth are found in both U k r a i n i a n churches and homes at Christmas. • Many Ukrainians attend Christmas Eve liturgy in a church, which is one of the most important rituals. In traditional Ukrainian fashion, children dressed in Ukrainian garb sing about Christmas on the streets of their town - called “kolyadky”. Some may have knocked on doors to perform kolyadky and receive in return words of great gratitude and even be

given tasty treats. On Christmas Eve, often a traditional dinner called “Svyatvechir” was held with family members who are specifically not allowed to quarrel in any manner. A confession is often performed prior to eating along with a vow to make peace with enemies. Ukrainian Christmas dinner includes 12 dishes in the honour of Christ’s 12 disciples. The following tasty meals are usually served for Svyatvechir: b o r s c h , dumplings, fish, mushrooms, porridge, beans, potatoes, cabbage rolls and kutia. Kutia is a ritual Slavic dish, made of milk, honey, wheat grains, beans, lentil, nuts and poppy seeds. The delicious meals are accompanied by a traditional drink called “uzvar”. On Christmas morning many traditional Ukrainians attended church. Upon leaving, the congregation might congratulate one another on the birth of Christ. After arriving back home, Ukrainians often have one more formal and festive dinner and enjoy time with family.

What it meant to lose you, No one can ever know. But now we know you want us To mourn for you no more; To remember all the happy times, Life still has much in store. Since you’ll never be forgotten, We pledge to you today, A hallowed place within our hearts Is where you’ll always stay. Lovingly remembered and deeply missed by your family, Brian, Charlene, Lana (Trevor), Bria and Tyra Kevin and Tracy.

Karol Maschmeyer Practice Readiness Centre a loving husband’s tribute to his late wife Story & Photo by Sharman Hnatiuk Alberta Health Services Seeing his wife’s name inscribed on a plaque outside northern Alberta’s first community hospital simulation lab brings a smile to Dennis Maschmeyer’s face. The Karol Maschmeyer Practice Readiness Centre, which opened last month, offers simulated scenarios that enable healthcare professionals to practise and master individual and team skills. Simulation prepares healthcare teams for

high-risk situations, builds confidence in a safe learning environment, bridges the gap between textbook learning and real-life situations, and gives healthcare providers the freedom to learn from mistakes without causing patient harm. The Fort Saskatchewan Community Hospital Foundation launched a fundraising campaign for the simulation lab earlier this year to raise the $750,000 needed to buy equipment and create a designated suite in the hospital.

Maschmeyer donated $20,000 in his wife Karol’s memory; she was admitted to the hospital for congestive heart failure compounded by chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) and passed away December, 2015. “There’s always a need for continuous improvement. Suggestions made during and following Karol’s stay were well-received and acted upon,” he says. “My wife was always a strong proponent of continuous learning and education. The concept of the simulation train-

From Where I Sit: Not bad for a Wednesday afternoon

By Hazel Anaka Have you ever been forced by your kids or grandkids to watch an animated Disney movie? I can almost guarantee it wasn’t a ‘one of’ because the kids I know want to watch and rewatch their favourites. The people at Disney are no dummies. They know that to be successful in the long term, they need to appeal to the adults who will take the kids to the theatre or buy the Blu-ray and mega licensed merchandise and have to listen to and watch the movie ad naseum. So while the child is enthralled with the cute characters, bright colours, exciting music, slapstick action the astute adult will be noticing the embedded storyline and life lessons. Case in point, I’m the proud owner of Toy Story 1, 2 and 3. As usual the first one was the best

one. I loved seeing toys that my kids grew up playing with come alive. Woody and Buzz Lightyear are clever leading men. So when I learned about The Science Behind Pixar exhibit at the Telus World of Science (TWOS) I wanted to be there. It’s at times like this that it’s good to have an eightyear-old grandson to provide cover. Giving him a forty-dollar gift card for TWOS offered a strong suggestion. It would cover his admission and a shopping spree of sorts at the gift shop. With the show ending January 7th, we needed to hustle in during Christmas break, after the four-day hockey tournament and the bone-freezing weather. The day that worked was warm but busy. The first and last time I was at TWOS was during Body Worlds. I don’t consider myself a science nerd and claim no skill in the area. The Pixar display begins with a short film describing the multistepped animation process before you enter the actual exhibit. The attractions and displays are interactive and held our attention for just over an hour. Some

things were more fun than others but because it’s self-directed, you just move on to the next thing. Visiting The Science Garage provided more interactive info. The 3D printer intrigued me but then again a fax machine still impresses me, so I may not be the best judge. The Body Fantastic room features gross bodily things that fascinate. Wondering about the peristaltic action of your bowel, there’s a display for that. Want to play Mary Had a Little Lamb using fart sounds, there’s a display for that. Check out the display of huge jars holding things like vomit, pus, phlegm, poop. Check your peripheral vision. Try replicating the action of your heart by squeeze, squeeze, squeezing a handgrip to force some red ooze up a six-foot tube. Visit the small displays lining the corridor on the second floor. I defy you to solve the triangles challenge. I realized there are degrees of learning, that I needn’t be an expert to have a great experience, and that kids and grandparents should do more things like this more often. Not bad for a Wednesday afternoon, from where I sit.

ing centre is an ideal opportunity to advance patient care by providing

Bruderheim’s Dennis Mashmeyer the staff at the site and surrounding area with this capacity. It will instil both confidence and job satisfaction to the care providers.”

Staff and physicians at the Fort Saskatchewan Community Hospital will receive more handson training to enhance their readiness to respond to real-time intensive situations thanks to the new simulation lab. The new centre is equipped with a family of computerized mannequins that mimic a variety of scenarios, including imminent delivery, post-partum hemorrhage, immediate caesarean birth, stroke diagnosis, pediatric asthma attack and anaphylaxis. Research shows simulation training is equivalent to clinical training and can enhance the quality of care and

improve patient safety. “Having a dedicated space to run an emergency drill will help our staff and physicians identify if there is a knowledge gap, improve communication among the team and identify if we have a process issue at the site, such as not having the right medication in the operating room,” says Kristen Moreau, a clinical nurse educator at the hospital. “Our goal is to support our high-functioning teams and continue to deliver good patient outcomes. Having a safe place to practise together and train for real-time situations will help our staff and physicians achieve that.”

Amazing Lamont Elementary Christmas Concert By Jolene Derksen and Taylor Fossum The Lamont Elementary Christmas Concert, held on December 13, was amazing! The students performed wonderful songs and the audience was thrilled! The opening act was the choir singing jolly Christmas carols. Then the Ukrainian students were on the stage to sing Ukrainian Christmas carols. We talked to Mrs. Oviatt, the music teacher, and asked her why we do a Christmas concert. She replied, “We do Christmas concerts for the students, parents and teachers. It's a time to celebrate the children's achievements and give them a taste of the performing arts. We also perform so that the parents can see the fruits of their children's hard work!” We also wondered how Mrs. Oviatt chose the songs for the concert. She replied, “When I sit down to write the concert I first listen to as many songs as I can. I only pick the ones that make me feel like dancing, or that give me goosebumps! Once I have a list of songs I like, I write the script to tie them all together.” The script was amazing and the elf actors, who per-

formed between the songs, did a great job. The audience enjoyed the variety of songs and how each was performed very differently with singing, instruments and music. The grade 4 class, for example, sang Sleigh Ride and did an awesome job of singing and playing the cups at the same time. The Grade 5

and 6 class performed Jingle Bell Rock drumming on buckets. A modern version of Jingle Bells was performed with bells by the Grade 5 students. Snowflakes fell as the Kindergarten performed a Little Snowflake! The concert concluded with all the students on stage singing Nice, Nice Christmas.

New plant for Heartland KERRY ANDERSON Inter Pipeline Ltd. has authorized the construction of an integrated propane dehydrogenation (PDH) and polypropylene (PP) plant. The facility will be located in Strathcona

near the company’s Redwater Olefinic Fractionator. The complex will convert propane into polypropylene - an easy to transport plastic used in manufacturing.

Congratulations to our Grade 6 student, Nicholas Wall from Andrew for participating in the Lamont County ASB poster contest and winning 3rd. The theme was " Your Favorite Season." Bonnie Chudyk presents the award.

Ridsdale (2a), Seth Williams (1a), and Dietrich Derksen (1a).

Water transmission line complete KERRY ANDERSON The water transmission line from the Heartland Reservoir to St. Michael is now complete, confirms Lamont County CAO Robyn Singleton. “Years before I got here the water in St. Michael came from a shallow well,” said Singleton. Because it was relatively close to a feedlot, there became a longterm conern about its safety. “Who would disagree?,” he added. Lamont County applied to the Alberta Water for Life program and was initially denied. “But when the new government came in, it was confirmed that we were funded,” said the CAO. The program paid 90 per cent of the roughly $6.1 million project. Back in December, Lamont Public Works announced that the line was pressure tested and dechlorinated. Now that final testing has been completed, St. Michael residents have the same safe, clean water as the rest of the county.

St. Michael now on the waterline Certified Seed For Sale Wheat: CWRS - AAC Brandon - improved FHB resistance - excellent standability CWSWS - AC Sadash - in demand by milling and ethanol industries Yellow Peas: CDC Meadow, AAC Lacombe 6-Row Feed Barley: Trochu - Great option for grain or forage Amisk - Improved stability, bushel weight 2-Row Malt Barley: CDC Copeland - Strong demand by malting companies.
