80-year-old George Streefkerk (centre), is one of the originals who participated in the first Birkebeiner in 1985.

Hearty cross country skiers attend Birkebeiner MAUREEN SULLIVAN Approximately 1,000 cross country skiers were out this past weekend at the 32rd Canadian Birkie. On Saturday, the starting leg was from the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village at 9:00 am. Lamont County Reeve Wayne Woldanski was out at the starting line along with other dignitaries wishing the skiers good luck and saying how proud they were to be able to hold the event on Treaty 6 land. Two days before the event they only had 540 people registered but on Saturday it had swelled to 1,000. Participants were from all over Canada, and as far away as Minnesota and Juneau, Alaska.

The start was well groomed and ready for the skiers. While the temperature was at -6 C. there was a very cold wind. Luckily for the skiers it was at their back for most of the race. Ed HeacocK, one of the original skiers 32 years ago, was acting as sweep this year bringing up the rear. "The fastest skiers can ski the 55 km (route) in about three hours and the slowest in seven-and-a-half hours. The weather is perfect this year. The best snows in 20 years." George Streefkerk, 80 years young, was also skiing the 55 km race. He is one of the five skiers left from the original event, who still ski the race. Skiers were either doing the arduous

55 km route with or without a 55 kg weighted pack - or the shorter (31 km) route. There were three waves of skiers at 9:00, 9:15 and 9:30 with the fastest skiers in wave 1, the middle in wave 2 and the slowest or most methodical in wave 3. The Birkie Legend began in the year 1206 while a civil war raged in Norway. The heir to the throne, infant prince Haakon Haakonsson, was in danger and two brave Birkebeiner warriors rescued him and carried him by skis to safety. The young prince, later crowned king of Norway ended the civil war. The Birkebeiners (Birchbarkleggers) got their name from wrapping and

tying birch bark around their legs like gaiters to keep the snow out and their legs protected in battle. Today, Birkebeiner has come to mean a person strong in adversity, never daunted by trial and hardships. This historic flight of the birchlegs and the infant king is commemorated every year in Norway. In 1985, 127 hardy participants skied in the first Canadian Birkebeiner. Five years ago they had up to 2000 skiers. Bad snow conditions the last couple of years has brought attendance down but they hope the weather and the people will stay with them in the upcoming years.

Firefighters honoured at Chipman ball Maureen Sullivan The Chipman Fire Department’s 5th Annual Ball was held on Saturday. It was a fundraising event to earn money for needed training equipment. The Department also gave out two awards and a memorial plaque. Regional Fire Chief David Zayonce was the featured speaker. George Paradis and Steven Rasmussen were honoured in memoriam. Officer of the Year was Justin Bork and Firefighter of the Year was Mike Hager.

This Ball was back after a two year hiatus. The Chipman

Regional Fire Chief David Zayonce

Firefighters made two moves in 2017. They

were absorbed into the regional firefighting team of Lamont County and then were allowed to move back into Chipman later in the year. The Chipman Volunteer Fire Department is 14 members strong with two members under the age of 18. They train once a week on Tuesdays and are always looking for new volunteers. The department covers an area from Hwy 16 up to RR 554 and Twp Rd 174 to Twp Rd 530 with a few zigs and zags. Volunteers were called

out on 212 calls in 2017, and 54 calls for service in 2018. Regional Fire Chief David Zayonce stated that "Chipman is one of the busiest fire houses in the County owing to the fact that they have a 9 mile section of Hwy 16 in their area." He went on to talk about the importance of communication, teamwork and that "whatever kind of fire service, (professional or volunteer) we play for keeps." Also stated was that being a volunteer firefighter was an exemplary second career.

Family Day across Lamont County JOHN MATHER Family Day, the February holiday, which first started in Alberta in 1990, has many exciting events planned across Lamont County towns and villages. Mundare Family Day In Mundare, Family Day will be celebrated on Monday, Feb. 19 with a breakfast of pancakes, sausage, scrambled eggs, and a drink for $5 at the Senior Centre from 9 to 11 a.m. From 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., there will be a free learn to curl event at the Mundare Recreation Centre and then from 12:30 to 3 p.m. residents are invited to a health and wellness time at the Hub in Victory Park, with a variety of exercises including snowshoeing, cross country skiing, or a simple walk in on the designated trails. To participate in the events however, one must have their own ski. The Mundare Agricultural Society is also hosting a free skating event at the Mundare Arena from 2:30 to 4 p.m. and there will be hot chocolate. Bruderheim Family Day Meanwhile in Bruderheim, Family Day will be celebrated with a variety of events at the Community Hall, the outdoor skating rink,

and the Karol Maschmeyer Arena. There will be a marshmallow roast, hot chocolate, and s’mores behind the Infinity Centre hosted by the Bruderheim Fire Department. A wiener roast will be held at the outdoor rink, courtesy of the Bruderheim Lions and Lioness Club.

During the day there will be public skating, games of foam dodge ball, and a community snowball fight. All activities are scheduled to run between 1 and 4 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 19. Other Family Day celebrations While Lamont itself

has no planned family day activities, Sandi Maschmeyer from the town office said there will be some public skating and shinny hockey at the arena. At press time it was not known if there were any events planned for Andrew. Family Day is one of two days a year where no fishing licence is required for a family wanting to give the sport a try. However, all fishing regulations still apply. In Edmonton, the city is part of the Family Day Unplugged, an initiative that encourages residents to take a break from technology and spend quality time with their family. Unplugged activities includes playing family board games, crafts or participating in one of

the many activities happening throughout the city at outdoor rinks, libraries, Edmonton Valley Zoo, including the Art Gallery of Alberta.

Opinion Right wing extremists ain't what they used to be There was a day when being a right wing extremist meant you were part of the Arian Nations or Ku Klux Klan, or some nefarious organization like that. But if your beliefs differ from those of certain left-wing Liberals of today, they’re quick to call people extremists who are actually just Conservatives. Considering both Liberals and Conservatives have shifted just slightly left of where they used to be, the best that I can tell it means people who believe in the following must now be RW extremists: You are pro-military, and pro-police. You think both are essential for the protection of our country and civilization. You don't feel either discriminates 99.9 per cent of the time. You stand for O' Canada out of respect for the country and the young “sons” (mostly) who fought and sometimes died for our freedom. You take your hat off in a restaurant, because you were taught it was good manners. You sympathize with people who have gender issues, but believe there are only two sexes genetically speaking. You believe illegal immigrants are not really immigrants at all. They are in the country illegally - and that means they are really just criminals. Immigrants go through the legal process (created for a reason) for the honour of becoming Canadian citizens. You believe in having social programs, but not as a crutch for people who don't want to work. You believe in having less government, less laws and less bureaucracy. You believe in taxing citizens and businesses less, so they can circulate their money rather than allowing the government to do it. You believe that an unborn child is a living person with the right to be born and live its life as you were allowed to live yours. You believe in nationalism - Canada first. You want the government to spend the money its citizens give it, in Canada for Canadians. You believe people have the right to hunt, and legally own registered firearms according to the laws of our country. You believe it is possible to believe any or all of these things - and more - without being a racist, misogynist, or right wing extremist. People today are too quick to label those who disagree with them. Contrary opinions should not be feared or avoided, but used as a way to test whether your views are valid. It’s amazing how undiscovered facts, new angles and uncovered evidence can completely change an opinion if given the time and consideration. Otherwise you are setting yourself up for the possibility of just being wrong. Kerry Anderson

LETTER TO THE EDITOR UCP built from the grassroots up Dear Editor, Since Jason Kenney first started travelling around Alberta working to establish a truly grassroots party in July 2016, I have been involved as a volunteer. Many Albertans, like myself, have worked very hard to build the United Conservative Party (UCP) from the grassroots up. In the interest of full disclosure, I currently serve as a director and volunteer with the UCP in Ft. Saskatchewan-Vegreville, working hard to create policies that can be taken forward to our Annual General Meeting in May 2018. Because of my role with the UCP, I take exception to the falsehoods spread by our current NDP MLA, Jessica Littlewood, who claimed in the newspapers that the UCP would “sell off” the Alberta Treasury Branches (ATB). Let’s be 100% clear: the UCP has never spoken about this and no such policy exists. Since we’re on the topic of falsehoods, perhaps the NDP can explain to voters the biggest falsehood in Alberta: the NDP’s job-killing carbon tax that they never campaigned on! Here are the facts: UCP members were provided a policy discussion paper at the beginning of 2018. They have been asked to refine, reshape and rework any policies that are of their interest, and submit their

input to the UCP party beforeFebruary 15, 2018. After those submissions are recorded, there will be regional meetings in March and April amongst the grassroots members to refine the policies in preparation for final submission at the Annual General Meeting. In May 2018 the UCP will hold its founding convention, where our policies will be discussed and voted on. It may come as a surprise to our NDP MLA, but this is how a democratic, grassroots party engages its members on policies. What has become obvious is how politically desperate this NDP has become. Their willingness to spread baseless fear amongst Albertans merely underscores how out of touch they’ve become. I would suggest that NDP MLAs check their facts before making public statements. Our province is facing some serious challenges at the moment, and smearing the Opposition won’t help the nearly 200,000 Albertans looking for work. I highly encourage Albertans to get involved in the policy process, this will help shape the UCP party, making it a true Alberta grassroots party- strong and free. Jackie Armstrong Homeniuk, Director, UCP for Ft. Saskatchewan-Vegreville

FROM WHERE I SIT: All is good

By Hazel Anaka For most of us the ability to travel by air is a treat and a blessing. We’re not required to do so for high-powered careers or trans-continental love affairs. We’re usually heading out on vacation and already in a good frame of mind. Oh, sure we get ticked off by the high ticket prices, the appalling food, the intrusiveness of the security check-in, the dinky little seats with no leg room, the long waits, the sometimes snarky employees, the unbending policies, the creative reasons for additional charges that feel like extortion. But, hey other than that, it’s all good. Until we find another way to move long distances quickly, we’re stuck with flying. What really drives me is the whole packing fiasco. It’s hard enough to pack for a car trip. Add in the constraints of luggage size and weight, cash penalties for overweight suitcases, and all the

security-based rules. Cue all the hidden camera footage of baggage handlers punting our valuables around. So aside from all the rules we need to follow and all the advice we’ve gotten about smart packing, one of the hardest things is deciding what to pack. Last fall I dragged a medium-sized hard body suitcase up a couple of weeks before an upcoming trip thinking time and thought would help me make the right choices. Here’s the deal. In late September I needed to pack for a Ukrainian wedding in Gatineau. That means either an embroidered blouse and strings of red beads or a simple black lace dress with shawl, jewelry, and heels. We also had plans to tour the House of Commons in Ottawa

courtesy of MP Shannon Stubbs’ office. That probably requires business casual. In addition, we’re indulging in a thermal cycle spa treatment in Ottawa that features an outdoor regime of ‘hot-cold-relax.’ So make room in the suitcase for a bathing suit, cover up, robe, flip-flops, toque, and reading material. A check of the sevenday forecast showed a heat wave would give way to more seasonal temperatures. Does that mean a couple nice sweaters or a lightweight coat? Do I wear runners or something a bit nicer for the miles tourists typically make? What about jewelry? Are the outfit pieces interchangeable? Would a scarf or two be nice? Despite Googling it, I still don’t know the cur-

rent rules about electronics. Are cell phones and e-readers allowed in the cabin on domestic flights? In checked luggage or carry-ons? I need to make room in my carryon for my CPAP machine. It’s far too sensitive for the aforementioned treatment by baggage handlers. Conventional wisdom says wear the bulkiest clothing, roll the rest of the items, stick with a basic colour palette, choose versatile pieces, accessorize for variety. And for the love of God, don’t over pack. Easier said than done. I’ve got my miniature toiletry items in a plastic bag, the bigger ones in the checked bag, and my fingers crossed that I haven’t missed anything or screwed up. Other than that, all is good from where I sit.

Air quality, public transportation discussed at Bruderheim council meeting Pink Shirt was started in Nova Scotia in 2007 when two youth started wearing pink shirts in support of a schoolmate who was being bullied in school. The movement has spread across the country since and proceeds of $1.8 million have been raised to support antibullying programs throughout Western Canada. Transportation Councillor Len Falardeau briefed council on a meeting he had with the County of Lamont to discuss rural transportation in the area. The ambitious plan would attempt to link all the communities in the county. “These plans are in their infancy,” Falardeau reported. “Trying to work out ways to develop a public transportation system in the coun-

JOHN MATHER Bruderheim councillors were told the town has very clean air during a presentation from the Fort Air Partnership (FAP) on Wednesday, Feb. 7 at the Bruderheim council meeting. FAP executive director Nadine Blaney told council that of more than 43,000 hours of monitoring air quality across the region there were only 57 hours that registered high or very high risk. In Bruderheim with 8,465 hours of monitoring, Blaney said, only 13 were in the high readings and none were in the very high area. In total 8,269 were in the low range and 183 recorded a moderate range, she added. “The high readings were associated with an air inversion last January and forest fires during the summer,” Blaney

FAP Executive Director Nadine Blaney continued school tours of local stations where easy access is available, and videos for classrooms to explain how the air monitoring stations work. Pink Shirt Day Council proclaimed Feb. 28 as pink shirt day in Bruderheim.

ty, which is a much needed thing, is a very expensive thing. It’s going to take a lot of effort and work. But we will have to give support to continue, but we have to try and find some funding or we’re just wasting our time.” He further added that there's a lot of issues to consider such as whether it would be developed to go to Fort Saskatchewan and if it would lead to business being lost to

others. Snow removal Public works was kept busy with snow removal during the past month. The Jan. 26 snowfall triggered a priority five snow removal blitz where outside contractors were brought in to aid town staff in removing snow form the town streets. CEO Patty Podoborozny told council 587 tandem truckloads of snow were

hauled away from the streets. Priority one and three alerts were triggered Feb. 3. She added approximately 25 tandems were hauled to the town snow dumpsite. All the streets had been sanded, but small rock chips were put down as well when the temperature dipped below -12 C. because the sand was ineffective.

Shovel safely during this snowy winter MAUREEN SULLIVAN It has been a while since we saw so much snow, so here are 6 tips to shovel safely. 1. It’s always best to stay on top of the snow. Shovel more frequently and remove a couple of inches at a time before it gets a chance to build up.

2. Wear breathable layers, it might feel cold when you first step outside but you will heat up fast as you shovel. 3. Do some stretching before you start. 4. Push don’t lift. Push the snow to the side instead of lifting it. If you have to lift use your knees not your back.

5. Make sure you have your cell phone with you in case of a fall or injury. 6. Most importantly TAKE YOUR TIME. Stop and rest if you are feeling tired and having problems breathing. The snow is not going anywhere till spring.

Farm safety discussed at St. Michael workshop JOHN MATHER Recognizing hazards and creating safe workspaces was the theme of an all-day workshop at St. Michael Recreation Centre on Wednesday, Feb. 7 hosted by AgSafe Alberta in partnership with Lamont and District Agricultural Society. Discussing livestock safety, County Agricultural Fieldman Terry Eleniak told workshop participants that thousands of heads of livestock are shipped across county roads during the year on the way to the market. "If an accident occurs, not only do emergency personnel have to deal with people involved in the accident but also with the animals," Eleniak remarked. To that end, the county is one of 16 jurisdictions province-wide to have an emergency livestock handling equipment trailer. “Whether it’s a highway accident, barn fire, flood, or other incident this trailer is a great tool,” said Eleniak. “It features the jaws of life, panels which can quickly be erected for pens, tarps, and ropes – all items needed for the containment of livestock.” In addition, it also has a full range of rescue equipment, Eleniak added, which is housed at the Bruderheim Fire Hall, and has been part of the county emergency preparedness system since 2014. Linden Lundback, a Lakeland College instructor spoke about about safe use and storage of pesticides. “Wearing proper protective equipment is essential to handling pesticides,” he said, adding that farmers must know what equipment and clothing must be cleaned separately from regular laundry. Lundback stated when handling pesticides the user should consult the label for the types of hazard it represents. If still unsure additional information can be

checked online at the manufacturers' website or with the Alberta Crop Protection guide. “We need to be aware of all the hazards,” Lundback stressed. “There are hazards to the environment, to our respiratory systems and skin toxicity.” When applying chemicals, he explained that the applicator must be aware of weather conditions, and people in the vicinity and other crops in the area. Wind can spread pesticides over wide areas, different chemicals require various durations to be effective, and treated areas must be kept clear. “It’s always a good idea to let your neighbours know what and when you’ll be spraying," Lundback stated. "Then they can ensure their children, pets, and crops are safe.” Dan Trottier with the province’s AgSafe Alberta program report-

ed how important it is to have a workplace assessment done so farm employees are aware of hazardous areas, and are able to work safely. “A good farm policy will include safety instructions and training for equipment, and records of who should operate specific equipment," Trottier said. "A proper farm assessment report could be anywhere from five to 500 pages, but done properly it can lead to a reduction in workers’ compensation premiums." AgSafe Alberta is a collaboration of livestock and crop sector producer groups who have developed farm safety tools and programs, which they make available to farmers province wide. The final area of farm safety discussed was mental health. "The agricultural sector is very susceptible to mental health issues," said Neil Harris of Alberta Health Services

(AHS) Addiction and Mental Health promotion facilitator. "Financial issues, poor crop production, damages caused to the family farm by mother nature can all lead to depression on the farm, and in extreme cases suicide." He reported men are more likely to absorb these and keep them bottled inside of them furthering the problem, while women on the farm generally will talk it out. Ways to watch stress levels, he explained, included being aware of the hours worked. “Farmers are very resilient,” Harris added. “But so many things are beyond their control. They have to watch for stress in their lives and work to control it; these issues are medical, but they aren’t visible.”

Lamont Parks Planning Committee wants input MAUREEN SULLIVAN The Town of Lamont Park Planning Committee met on February 8, to discuss upcoming plans for 2018. The meeting was led by Chair Dave Taylor. The committee is responsible for all the green spaces in town. While the committee has 4 main objectives in mind for 2018, which includes benches, lights, trees and moving forward with a BMX bike path at Hillside Park, they want to hear from the town residents. To that end they will be sending out a survey to find out what others think. The surveys will be going out to local businesses, schools, the arena and the town office shortly. The park committee has partnered with the Lamont Lion's, a nonprofit organization, to be eligible to apply for grants towards their priorities of 2018. They will also

look into fundraising on their own. They raised $760 last year by selling metal leafs with your name engraved on them for at least a $50 donation to go toward buying trees for Hillside Park. They plan to have a ceremony for the donors when they plant the trees. It was so successful they hope to do it again this year. Bruce Suffield a former track coach and artist from Lamont has donated a sculpture to the town. A decision is being made where to place it, most likely in front of the Town of Lamont office. The committee is looking for more members to participate. Citizens are asked to fill out the survey and come out to the next meeting on April 5, 7:00 pm at the town office.
