Lamont County purchases land to allow for rail-line connector and future development Michelle Pinon Editor

While Lamont County publicly announced Friday, August 4 that it had reached a deal to purchase 20 acres of land adjacent to Alberta Midland Railway Terminal (AMRT) near

Lamont, officials would not disclose the purchase price. Robyn Singleton, Chief Administrative Officer for Lamont County, told The Lamont Leader that the purchase price was not being disclosed at the wish of council and the landowner.

However, the legal land location of the landowner, was disclosed in its press release as: SW-36-55-20-W4. Singleton confirmed the landowners name, stating that it was in fact Robert Kottke. Kottke was one of about 25 people who had

Lamont Countyʼs recent purchase of 20 acres of land adjacent to this railway terminal has averted the proposed closure of Range Road 201 north of Highway 15 just west of the Town of Lamont.

previously attended the public hearing on the proposed closure of Range Road 201 (Bylaw 775.17) that was held on April 25 in council chambers. At that time, Kottke’s lawyer Douglas Jenkins, spoke against the proposed road closure. Jenkins stated that Kottke was the most impacted than any of the other interested parties, and in his submission said: “It is obviously no coincidence that this coincides with the decision of Lamont County to seek the passing of a bylaw that, if approved and withstands court challenges, will result in the closure of Range Road 201 along the west boundary of the Kottke lands and AMRT rail link.” In the press release that was issued by Lamont County, it stated, “The purchase will facilitate a connection between the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific rail lines, in cooperation with AMRT. There are a number of conditions attached to the purchase and the top priority of the county was to get the deal done so that it can proceed with subdividing the property. Singleton said that would be “an internal county process” and once completed, would allow for the transfer to

be finalized. He went on to say that all of the adjacent landowners have been notified about the county’s intent to subdivide those 20 acres. “Once the purchase has been completed we would withdraw our application for the road closure bylaw,” noted Singleton. Even though the dollar amount of the purchase was not disclosed, Singleton said the funds for the purchase of those 20 acres would come from capital reserves. “Everything tells us there is potential for more development and he expects it will spark even more and larger developments in the future. The AMRT investment alone is pegged at $30 million. Singleton expects more tax revenue and spinoffs from AMRT as well as other rail related investments in the future. According to Jim Newman, Manager of Economic Development for Lamont County, the development of a rail line connector will “enhance economic opportunities for Lamont County to attract new industry interested in connections to both rail lines, and that (the railconnector) will be desirable for those industries that want access to the global market.”

Landowners adjacent to Range Road 201 may be relived to know Lamont County will not be closing the road in light of its recent land purchase. AMRT shareholders, invited guests, elected officials and administrators with Lamont County held an official ribbon cutting on Wednesday, July 26. At that time Lamont County Reeve Wayne Woldanski touted the $30 million rail logistics centre as a major boon to the economy and felt the project would kickstart other economic development activity in the area. Lamont County council August 8 agenda had listed under 6.4 Request for Decision: Road Closure Bylaw 775.17 from Planning and Community Services Director Stephen Hill.

Opinion Five steps to real and lasting change By Doug Griffiths, Community Builder The comic attached to this column has appeared in many places, and like most pictures such as this, its brilliance lies in its ability to layer humour over some very bitter truths. So many of us desperately want the world to be different and we exhaust a lot of energy decrying our current lot. However, changing the world starts with changing ourselves. Yet we don’t change, or more often, we won’t even try to change.  Instead, we choose to carry on complaining and wondering when someone else is going to make the world better for us. Making things better takes hard work, and requires a willingness to change. Making things better in your community also requires hard work and a willingness to change. Success is not made by a lottery win or a magic bullet. However, there are five steps that are required to get real change in your life and in your community.  The first step is simple. Admit there is a problem. Admit your current situation is undesirable and you want something better. Without this step, nothing changes. Yet, not taking this first step is very common. We lie to ourselves to make the problem go away. We say we are ‘fat fit’, or that the amount we drink is fine, or that we have no control over our current situation. In communities,

we say our situation is the result of economic forces beyond our control, or that our community doesn’t have a problem, or that we support local businesses just fine. Regardless, they are lies we tell ourselves so we don’t feel responsible or a need to change. Finding success begins with recognizing there is a problem. The second step requires a willingness to change. Many people will take the first step in admitting there is a problem, but aren’t willing to change. They admit they are overweight or out of shape, but aren’t willing to doing something about it. Communities are no different. Many communities admit their attitudes and actions cause young people to leave their community. Most, however, aren’t willing to stop doing what is driving them away. So, even though they have admitted there is a problem, they aren’t willing to change themselves to find success. The third step is a commitment to action. Resolutions are made every New Year, founded on the recognition that there is a problem and a deep desire to change ourselves to fix it. Often an entire year goes by without action, however. Without real action, nothing changes. You may realize you are out of shape and really want to change, but unless you start to get exercise on a regular basis you won’t lose weight or get fit. The same applies to communities. Many of them know

there is a problem, realize they should change to address it, but then fail in the follow through. The fourth step cannot be overlooked, because it is about carrying on when you fail. And yes, you will fail at some point. Too often we think that failing is the opposite of success, but that is wrong. Failing is a part of finding success. The opposite of success is not failing, it is giving up. The fourth step to real change is knowing that you will fail at some point, but finding that motivation to get back up and keep going. The last step is about realizing you are never really done working on change. As you make progress, review and reassess what is working and what isn’t. If something isn’t working then go back to step one, admit there is a problem, and carry on through the steps again. Changing for the better, finding success, is not a process that is ever done. It is a mindset that makes you, and your community, adaptable

and persistent, or as my friends like to say – resilient. If you want real change, take these five steps, because without them you will never get past complaining. Change can be tough to handle, but it is never impossible. If you really want to make your community better, if you are honestly ready to look for success, give us a call. We know, when it comes to finding a path to success . . . There’s Always A Way.

Letter to the Editor: Right-sizing, not reckless growth I am always shocked that political parties continue to promise economic growth as if it was some sort of holy grail. In fact, most of us know that the senseless pursuit of economic growth is going to tip us into tragedy. We know, for instance, that continuing to emit greenhouse gases at this rate is going to kill hundreds of thousands of people and destabilize the world politically. Growth takes energy and energy use causes climate change. We also know that Canadian economic recovery is a

result not of increased production, but because people are borrowing more. Household debt that has never been higher. If interest rates or housing costs increase even a bit, a lot of folks are going to lose everything. We’re walking an ecological and economic highwire: why do we continue to pursue such stress, risk and danger? The alternative is to growth is to “right-size” our economy. How do we decide what the “right” size is? Government can balance benefits with risk:

• Enough industry that we are prosperous but not so much that our air, water, soil and biodiversity becomes dangerous. We know what the safe limits are: all we have to do is monitor and stay under those limits. • Enough free trade that we continue excellent relationships with our global allies, but not so much that we cannot sustain our own manufacturing and service sector. • Enough taxation that can afford those things we value, especially our excellent infra-

structure, health care and educational systems, but not so much that we throw money around just to create jobs. There are many ways to lead a fascinating and productive life: what’s wrong with slowing down and working less? • Enough debt that people can own their own homes, but not so much that our entire economy is put at risk (while banks syphon record profits away from our communities). What would it be like to live in a “right-sized” economy? Probably a lot like living in the 1950s.

People walked more, lived in smaller homes, saved up for things they wanted, had a garden in the back yard and went camping on their holidays. One radio, one television, one telephone, all of which lasted for decades. Fewer clothes, but much better quality. Less exotic foods, but tastier and more nutritious. Less work, more time. Less waste. Less risk. Sounds like taking a step backward? It is. But remember: we’re in trouble, and we need to scale back the way we live. It’s going to happen no mat-

ter what we do. Automation is going to replace 30 per cent of jobs within ten years. Eventually, enough people will default on their debt and topple our economy into recession. In other words, we crash into a mess we might not be able to handle, or we slow down purposefully, enjoying the slower, safer pace.

Open Farm Days

Clean water needs to be protected Dear Editor, When we turn on the tap, clean, clear water quickly flows out. We use this water for cooking, washing, drinking and countless other uses, but rarely do we stop to think about where it comes from. The tap water of one in four Albertans is provided by the North Saskatchewan River. This river originates in the glaciers, mountains and foothills of Bighorn Country, between Banff and Jasper National Parks. It flows over 1,000 km through Clearwater County and the Edmonton capital region on its way north and east into Saskatchewan. One might assume that Lamont gets its water from other sources, but it too relies on this great river. What happens to the river’s headwaters in

the Bighorn affects well over a million downstream users. The Bighorn is currently in pretty good shape. Its relatively intact forests, meadows, and streams are home to iconic species like grizzlies, wolverine, bull trout and bighorn sheep. There is little industrial activity west of Nordegg, where I live, and there are few roads beyond the David Thompson Highway. Intact, healthy forests like these are essential to functioning headwaters and watersheds. Trees and leafy understory plants are like sponges: they absorb, filter and regulate water, preventing flood and drought downstream while keeping contaminants and sediment out of the river’s flow. However, east of the

Church Calendar For more information call 780-895-2780 Church Directory ad $40+GST per month

national parks, only 5% of this critical watershed is protected. And this is a problem. The Bighorn region is vulnerable to oil, gas and metallurgical coal developments. The foothills are already subject to considerable forestry activity. In some areas, the cumulative pressure from these and recreational activities are beginning to fragment the forest. Impacts on wildlife and water can be severe. We need to act now to protect clean water, our most precious commodity. We must safeguard our land and water today if we want our children to use it as millions of us do now: for sustainable recreation activities with our friends and families and drinking from one of the millions of taps downstream.

It’s imperative that the North Saskatchewan River headwaters be formally protected. I urge you to check out the Love Your Headwaters campaign online, and to tell the Alberta government that you want your water protected through the creation of a wildland park in the Bighorn. The waters of the North Saskatchewan are far too important to far too many people to leave them so vulnerable. Many thanks, Maria Zapach

From Where I Sit: The Right Choice cleaning? How can any conscientious Nana worth her salt leave when Grady’s been called up the Mosquitoes to pitch? Or shot a thirty-nine to win third place in a golf tournament?

By Hazel Anaka Sometimes a girl just has to drop everything and go. For people hardwired like me it’s far too easy to fight the urge to just be spontaneous. We get bogged down with the crushing load of responsibility. How can any responsible farm wife leave home when there’s always work to do? The fact is I’m the cook and the chauffeur, parts runner and extra set of hands, not the actual farmer. How can any self-respecting adult leave home when the yard is abloom with dandelions and the remaining flowerbeds need

Yet, I did take off. I’d been itching for a solo road trip for some time. Ya know, one of those introvert-like behaviours. So, without inviting anyone to join me, a few weeks ago I texted my sister in Hinton on Thursday and asked if I could visit SaturdaySunday. The sort of quickie that avoids the phenomenon of ‘guests, like fish starting to stink after three days.’ Enough time to catch up without buggering up their routine or making me feel like an nuisance. And so it was. The roads and weather were perfect. The traffic was manageable. If I’d truly wanted to get into my head, I wouldn’t have

played audio book tapes all the way, all the time. There’s just something wonderfully possible about filling a gas tank, packing road trip snacks, slapping on a pair of sunglasses, and hitting the open road. It’s possible to stop and restart at will, whenever the hell you want to. To ride in silence or crank up the tunes. To regulate cabin temperature. To travel whatever speed you choose to. To stop at garage sales or antique stores or pretty boutiques. To try off-thebeaten-path eateries. I did none of that. But I could have. And that’s the beauty of a road trip. It’s not like commuting to work or doing a parts run to a bigger, neighbouring town. Or keeping medical appointments in the city and shoe horning personal and/or fun errands in and around

them, for efficiency’s sake. God knows, I’ve done thousands of those trips. During spring work I did three one hundred kilometre round trips in less than fifteen hours to get farm repairs, for heaven’s sake. Necessary, but not at all fun or relaxing. So, my lovelies, if you have a chance to pack up the car and head somewhere with little or no agenda or deadline, grab it and go. Forget the house and yard. Forget the family obligations and must-dos. Set some boundaries (electrified razor-wire ten-foot tall barrier fencing) between you and the job and just go. You may have to bear down and work like hell beforehand to make it happen, but so what. Sometimes just going for it is the right choice, from where I sit.

This land is your land, this land is my land Thank you “Kanada”

Nickerson preliminary hearing slated for June 2018 at Fort Saskatchewan Provincial Courthouse Michelle Pinon Editor

Rain or shine it’s cruisin time in Andrew Michelle Pinon Editor

Main street in Andrew will be transformed into an incredible showpiece come Saturday morning. Resident George Keddie can’t wait until August 12, and has been busy promoting the Andrew Cruisers Car Club Show ’N’ Shine near and far over the past couple of months. This will be the second time the club has hosted a car show, and the last one was held during the

Garlic Festival last October. At least folks won’t have to don toques and mitts this time around. The Andrew Lions Club will be kicking things off shortly after 8 a.m. with a hearty pancake breakfast at the Lions Den. Registration for car show will also start at 8 a.m. and go until 12:30 p.m. The entry fee is $15 for each vehicle. In the meantime, folks will be able to stroll and enjoy entertainment, as well as

CAREER

Opportunity The Weekly Review has an opening for a

a farmer’s market. There will be plenty of door prizes and trophies for the car show entrants. There will also be beef on a bun as well as mini donuts for the hungry crowd to enjoy through-

out the day. Come rain or shine, George says the event will be a go and is hoping for the best as all systems are a go at this point.

Ukrainian Day chocked full of great activities Michelle Pinon Editor

There is always a fantastic line up of activities and entertainment during special events at the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village (UCHV), but Sunday, August 13 (Ukrainian Day) will be extra special as it officially opens the Galician Settlers farmstead. Pamela Trischuk, Head, Education & Interpretation at UCHV, said the farmstead will be open to the public following an official ribbon cutting ceremony and speeches around 11:15 a.m. “For this opening, we’ve invited a variety of special guests and dignitaries, including the descendants of the families portrayed in the buildings, research

informants, contractors who assisted in the restoration of the buildings or furnishing and donors.” Trischuk went to say, “This farmstead has been under development since 2011 when the first buildings were relocated to that site. While only formally under development for the past few years, this farmstead was identified as part of the original master plan for the UCHV and this opening brings us one step closer to fulfilling that master plan.” The five buildings include: Hlus House, Hlus Barn, Hlus Chicken Coop, and Lakusta Granary. Trischuk pointed out that: “Most of the Ukrainian immigrants who settled in east central Alberta between 1892 and 1914 came from the Austro-Hungarian

crown land of Galicia, and were often called “Galicians” in Canada. While it was not always obvious, GalicianUkrainian building styles, furnishings, handicrafts, domestic and farming practices, folkways, diet and dialects often differed from their Bukovynian counterparts, and caused the Galicians to group together when settling in east central Alberta. The historic buildings of the Galician Settlers’ farmstead have been restored and furnished to 19151919.” Another highlight of the day will be the Centenary Pioneer Recognition program around 12 Noon. “We will be honouring a total of 1,196 pioneers. Centenary Pioneer Recognition certificates will be presented hon-

ouring 694 pioneers and 502 new names will be unveiled on our permanent Centenary Monument. Pioneers are recognized through a certificate in the year their application is first made and then their names are added to the plaques on the monument the following year,” noted Trischuk. Highlights include an afternoon concert featuring the best in Ukrainian dance and music groups after 2 p.m. at the band shell, visit to the historical village, children’s activities, village market, feature art exhibit, and the Ukrainian Village Food Festival which is proudly co-hosted with the Ukrainian Canadian Congress-Alberta Provincial Council, noted Trischuk. For the early birds there will be church serv-

ices between 9:15 and 11 a.m. Folks are also encouraged to bring

their lawn chairs for the presentations and concert.

NDP government ends pay to play politics MLA slams Kenney for waffling on donor disclosure By Jessica Littlewood Jason Kenney is still part of the Old Boys Club. The same entitled Conservatives that held the power of Government in the hands of the rich and well connected, while leaving Albertans on the hook for their costly mistakes. Kenney promised during the recent PC leadership campaign that he would disclose to Albertans who funded his campaign and for how much, but it came as no surprise that he waffled on that promise and refused to disclose all of his donors. Then PC party executive director Troy Wason, as well as Kenney spokesman Blaise Boehmer committed to disclosing fund raising activities howev-

er they have since refused to do so for 75% of their donors. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who they are or if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re even from Alberta, and now we will never know. For the last two years I have heard loud and clear, that Albertans want to know who is trying to influence their politics and their futures. Starting with the very first bill passed by this NDP Government, we removed corporate and union donations showing that we now have a Government that is committed to Election Finance transparency. Last year we went a step further and created transparency in donations that fund candidate races, so that anyone who is hoping to be elected to the highest

office in Alberta will finally be accountable for who paid their way to get them there. As Chair of the Special Select Ethics and Accountability Committee, I am so proud of the work we did to make that happen. The opposition parties, including the Wildrose and their new dance partners the PCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, fought tooth and nail to keep more money in politics to protect the interest of the Old Boys Club that financed their parties for decades. Under old PC rules one person could donate $105,000 over four years. NDP committee members fought to change that, and put caps on campaign spending. Despite the howling from the opposition, our Government ended pay to play politics, and is

using the law to shine the sunlight on â&#x20AC;&#x153;dark moneyâ&#x20AC;? and put the power back where it belongs, in the hands of the people of Alberta. Finally we have a Government that stands on the side of every day Albertans and believes that each and every one of you have the right to influence the decisions made by your government. The Conservatives had 44 years to come clean on where their dark money was coming from, and Kenney has refused to come clean. If Jason Kenneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign was about anything other than power, then why refuse to disclose who gave him money and how much? Alberta deserves better.

Edmonton man escapes fatal injuries from flying SUV Video from surveillance in an Edmonton parking lot show a man narrowly escaping serious, fatal injuries in a scene that is straight out of the most actionpacked movie. While walking through a parking lot, an SUV appeared in the corner of the video. It seemed to have veered and ran straight into the curb, sending it flying through the air directly towards the unsuspecting victim. The man, seeing it at the last second, seems to dodge the airborne vehicle as it sails right past him. It then crashes right into cars in the parking lot where they were all thankfully unoccupied. The victim was able to walk away from the accident with just a broken arm and a crazy story to share. The driver was taken to the hospital with nonlife threatening injuries.

Haunted hotel room goes viral A man posted a video of his haunted hotel

room and it has gained traction, spooking the internet. Frank Ramirez of Corpus Christi, Texas, noticed strange things happening in his hotel room in Harlington, Texas, and began filming. In the video, Ramirez explains that first his phone fell off its charger, which he assumed was just nothing. Then a cup fell to the floor, and after

noticed some spooky things himself. The TV had turned on in the middle of the night, a classic haunting thing to do, and the towel rack fell off the wall. To top it off for Fonseca, the toilet began flushing on its own, with all on camera. The original video garnered over 7.5 million views, and it seems most of the internet have gone from skeptic to believers.

Close encounter of the bear kind for Bruderheim resident Michelle Pinon Editor

Bruderheim resident Virginia Differenz now has a couple of new items to add to her “to do” list that she never thought of adding to it before. Those new items include: a whistle and bear spray.

Last Tuesday morning while hiking on the Muskeg Creek Park trails near Athabasca, Virginia saw a mother black bear and cub on the trail. “I

went around the corner and that’s when I spotted them. Thank goodness they were some distance away.” When she spotted the bears they were standing on their hind legs and batting each other playfully. Virginia thought it might be a good idea to play music on her iPhone thinking it would scare

them away. In fact it made them more curious. At that point she turned the music off. When she put her phone back in her hoodie she

accidentally pocket dialed her aunt. The line was all full of static and that’s when Virginia’s aunt called police. She began retracing her steps. “Maybe it was silly, but I looked back and he (the cub) was going in the opposite direction.” The cub’s mother had already gone into the bush, and soon after he veered off the path as well. Virginia was about halfway back down the path when local RCMP came to her rescue. “I was glad to see them,” said Virgina, who had already eaten her banana and was almost out of water. Virginia said she never felt in danger despite the proximity of the bears. “I didn’t realize how much trouble I could get in.” On the plus side, she left a note saying where she was going, had her

On the negative side she was walking alone and did not have a bear whistle or horn or spray with her. She was told that the bear horn can be blown 12 times in total. After she returned

home Virginia happened to be sitting beside a gentleman at a funeral service when he started talking about the woman who had the encounter with the bears. Ironically, that woman was her. She is just fortunate to be back home safe and sound, and a bit wiser,

because of her close encounter of the bear kind. She doesn’t plan on cutting out hiking from her active lifestyle, but does plan to have a few more items at the ready for those “just in cases”.
