Unwanted sand angers farmers


Maureen Sullivan Looking over the white snowfields you see something else on the properties adjacent to the SIL plant located in Lamont County - you see sand. A complaint was made to the company by residents who have been suffering from blowing sand off the stockpiles located around the property. Concerned about the health of their families and livestock, the residents around the plant want something to be done. Brenda Broder was repeatedly taking her infant and toddler to the hospital with respiratory complaints. Three months ago she replaced her older trailer with a new one. She currently has sand in her furnace and her ducts, she says. Her children continue to cough and now her goats and miniature horses have begun to cough. She is also concerned that the sand will ruin her crops and get into the hay and straw her livestock need. The Hossacks (neighbours) have similar conSand cerns. They have 3-4 horses with coughs and dust on their windowsills. When taking the dog for a walk they come back with dust on their lips, they report. Peter Lysyk, another property owner in the area, melted one square metre of snow and was left with an entire sandwich bag of fine sand. Residents alerted SIL to the problem and after taking a look the company called Alberta Environment Ministry. There is currently an investigation

underway. Sean Mudge, the company’s legal counsel, said “We’re not looking to be a bad neighbour.” They have been working with the Ministry to figure out what caused the problem and how to clean it up. “If we caused it, we want to make sure it doesn’t happen again and we want to clean up the mess that’s there.” Lamont County’s Chief Adminstration Officer Robyn Singleton said the county does not have jurisdiction over environmental and health concerns, it only gives oper-

farmers have complained about. ating permits. SIL has applied for an expansion to the plant site, and it is currently being considered. The county may look at restricting the height of the sand stock piles by creating new bylaws. The farmers say that they are not lookng for the sand plant to close, they just hope their concerns will be addressed. At SIL it is currently business as usual while examining the problem.

Mundare Council hears details of ruptured gas line JOHN MATHER Four families were evacuated from their home on Monday, Feb. 12, after a construction crew ruptured a gas line in the Whitetail Crossing area of Mundare. “Private contractors were repairing a leaking curb cock (cc) valve,” said CAO Colin Zyla to Mundare council, Feb. 20. “They hit a mismarked gas line and ruptured it.” He added in “no way” was it a town workers’ problem.  Public works, he said, had nothing to do with the incident and hoped the community wouldn’t think so. “The gas line was incorrectly marked,” Zyla added. “Atco Gas came out and isolated the line.  All residents were all back in their homes by 7 p.m.” He said there were some learning issues during the evacuation. “We have to ensure we have call back numbers to reach those families affected,” he said. “Since it happened during the day not everyone was home. We need to get phone numbers to alert

them of the problem and when they can return home.” Councillor Jaime Burghardt added that there had been some concerns in the neighbourhood, but no one was blaming the town for the incident. “Anyone who was concerned is OK now,”

she said. Council to meet over shuttered clinic The council will meet with officials from Covenant Health later today, Feb. 28 to discuss the future of the town’s medical clinic. The clinic at Mary Immaculate Care Centre was closed indefinitely on Nov. 29,

2017. “The clinic was only open a couple of days a week working out of the healthcare centre,” reported Zyla. “But I believe the doctor who ran the clinic either retired or downsized and they’ve been trying to find someone to operate it.”

He said the closure could have a large impact on the town leaving the community with no doctors, so it’s important they meet with Covenant Health for an update. Budget input sought Mundare council met with interested citizens on Tuesday, Feb. 27  to get input and suggestions for the upcoming annual budget. “We want to hear what the priorities of people

are,” said Zyla He added that although the budget is normally done by April, and is used to determine the tax rate for the community and sets out expenses and revenues and capital spending for the year, inputs will be helpful. Zyla said no decisions have been made on capital spending because that could be influenced by what came out of the public meeting.

Opinion PM Trudeau (AKA) Mr. Dressup? It is getting harder and harder for real people to relate to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and every time he goes on a cringe-worthy foreign diplomacy trip it appears that we aren’t alone. One of his first Tweets from his trip to India last week (accompanied by a photo of course) came with the PM proudly stating that it was pretty great that his son Xavier is just about the age he was, the first time he visited the Taj Mahal. That tweet brought about a couple of questions: 1) Why is he in India when our Canadian athletes are having their greatest Winter Olympics ever in South Korea?, besides the difficulties BC and Alberta are experiencing? 2) When was the last time any taxpayers made their way to the Taj Mahal on vacation? And doesn’t that make two generations of Trudeaus which have now toured the Taj Mahal on the backs of Canadian taxpayers? Nevertheless, there they were, Canada’s “royal family” arriving in the second most populated country in the world (1.3 billion) and being greeted at the airport by… the Indian Minister of State for Agriculture, Gajendra Singh Shekhawat. Apparently, Prime Minister Narendra Modi normally meets visiting leaders at the airport, but on this occasion felt it more important to pull out the red carpet for the US President’s son, Donald Trump Jr., who was making an unofficial business trip to India. This snub surely indicates the general feeling in India about our Canadian PM, and not to prove them wrong PM Trudeau proceeded to continue his tour of gaffes. One error was the Liberal Government sending Jaspal Atwal an invitation to a dinner with Trudeau at the Canadian High Commissioner’s residence in New Delhi, which had to be called off when the Canadian government discovered that the invitee was a Sikh extremist convicted of attempting to murder an Indian politician. Others have suggested that this invitation (and the Trudeau government’s history of being too close to Sikh separatists which are advocating an independent state) - was the last straw in its relations to India. Adding to the embarrassment is the speculation that Trudeau used taxpayers’ money to fly a Vancouver-based celebrity chef, Vikram Vij, to cook for diplomats during the visit (and yet the country’s agriculture minister was not included in the PM’s entourage despite India being one of Canada’s most important export markets). Even if a good Canadian might ignore these glaring issues, the embarrassing photo ops in traditional Indian garb cannot be ignored for their fashion faux pas. Indian politician Omar Abdullah took to Twitter; “Is it just me or is this choreographed cuteness all just a bit much now?” Others stated, Indians don’t dress like that every day - as the Canadian Prime Minister was adorned in traditional Indian wedding attire. Author Candice Malcolm tweeted: “Trudeau is playing dress up, and thoroughly embarrassing himself in India. Hopefully this is a teaching moment for the PM. You are a diplomat, not a celebrity. Act like it.” Now well into his third year as Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau continues to prove he is an elitist who is out of touch with Canadians and perhaps everyone else as well. Kerry Anderson

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Tax scam says you’ll be arrested On February 26, 2018 the RCMP have received several calls from concerns citizens about suspicious phone calls they are receiving today stating they will be arrested if they don’t pay owed money to Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). It’s tax time, and RCMP are advising residents of a reoccurring phone scam. In this scam, suspects contact potential victims by phone, if the caller answers, they are advising tax money is owed. The suspects use high pressure tactics and in some cases threaten the victim “you’ll be arrested” if the amount owing is not paid immediately. Or, they leave a message to call them back at a non-government number, claiming to be from the CRA. If you receive a call from someone claiming you owe money, get as much information from them as possible, do not provide any of your information, and tell them you will call them back. · Don’t trust the phone number or email from the caller. Verify they are who they say they are from a legitimate website.

NEVER share any personal information with the caller, such as confirming your legal name, date of birth, social insurance number, address, etc. Do not provide any personal information, and ensure the call has been ended before discussing anything personal. Be careful before you click on any links in any email you receive. Some criminals may be using a technique known as phishing to steal your personal information when you click on the link. Shred unwanted documents, or store them in a locked and secure place. CRA will contact you via your secure account online, which only you should have access. RCMP advise they will not make arrests for overdue CRA fines. The CRA will not request payments by prepaid credit cards, or itunes gift cards. If you believe you may be the victim of fraud or have given personal or financial information unwittingly, call your local police.

FROM WHERE I SIT: Hugged Not Ostracized

BY HAZEL ANAKA Surveys show that humans fear public speaking more than death. Apparently the fear dates back to our evolution as humans. Evidence shows huge predators likely ate those earliest people. Living in groups increased the safety of all its members. Failure to fit into the group, being ostracized, or getting kicked out of the tribe meant certain death. That real human

desire to fit in and avoid being judged and found wanting has endured. We fear embarrassment and rejection. Most of us will do whatever it takes to blend in and retain our place in the social order. Given all that, why would I agree to make a presentation about Babas & Borshch at the Growing Rural Tourism Conference in Camrose? Maybe facility GM Chuck got me in a moment of weakness last fall. I believed we’ve got a good and possibly inspiring story to tell after five years. Delegates from across the province would be exposed to the festival before and during the conference. Hearing that Chuck attended the festival last year and loved what he saw finally sold me. That plus months of lead-time to prepare. I also believed I’d be talk-

Locals do well in Alberta Winter Games MAUREEN SULLIVAN Earler this month the Alberta Winter Games took place with 3 young athletes from Lamont County taking part. The Games took place in Wood Buffalo on February 16 to 18th. The games consisted of mostly winter sports such as hockey, alpine and cross country skiing, snow boarding, figure skating and curling. They also have competitions in archery,gymnastics, biathlon, fencing, judo, ringette, squash,

synchronized swimming and wrestling. Clay Laronde from Lamont, competed in archery in the 15 - 17 Cadet Compound for Males and finished in second place with a score of 112. He also took first place in the Archery Mixed Compound Team with a score of 149, Alyshia Bryks from Andrew, placed 8th in female volleyball. Emerson Jarvis from Mundare took second place in the female hockey category.

ing to a few people in a concurrent breakout session in one of the small rooms. Not so. This became clear just days before when I printed out the conference schedule. I would be addressing all the delegates in the big room. Yikes. I am the opposite of a procrastinator so my prep began late last year. A mind map of the concepts I wanted to cover was a convenient catchall place for ideas. Using bits and pieces from a presentation I made to the Lamont

Chamber of Commerce in 2014 provided the structure. I chose a PowerPoint template and began saving clip-art images in a folder on my desktop. I made speaking notes. As the day drew near I rehearsed my delivery umpteen times. My timing fit the forty-five minutes allotted. I did mental prep as well. Meditating in my hotel room that morning helped. Words of can-do encouragement from friends and acquaintances helped. Eventually I recog-

nized I’d done everything humanly possible to prepare. I’d spoken to the audio-visual guys who uploaded my presentation and fitted my headset mic. I’d been on the stage, had a glass of water at hand, knew how to work the remote, had a ‘comfort’ monitor on a floor stand in front of the stage. The only surprise was how blinding the stage lights were. I felt I was squinting the whole time. Maybe it was a blessing that I couldn’t see individual faces. Finally, it was time.

Before long it was over. There were laughs where there should have been laughs. To my relief, I got hugs and heartfelt congratulations. When people quoted some of my words, I knew they weren’t simply blowing smoke. They liked and appreciated the truthtelling message. My advice? If you get the chance to blow through your comfort zone and do some public speaking, take it. There’s a good chance you’ll be hugged not ostracized, from where I sit.

Mundare School Olympics held Mundare School had its own Winter Olympics recently to come together as a school in fair and fun games, just as the nations of the world did. Junior High leadership students and staff organized all the students into 10 different countries complete with flags for each “athlete”. Due to bitterly cold temperatures, their original plan for outdoor games was adjusted to hosting indoor events such as cup stacking (snow-towers), blanket relay (toboggan races), hockey, curling and a hot chocolate station to keep our engines going!

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING LAMONT COUNTY – ALBERTA’S INDUSTRIAL HEARTLAND Land Use Bylaw Amendment (Bylaw 782.18) TAKE NOTICE that pursuant to the Municipal Government Act, S.A., 2000, as amended, the Council of Lamont County proposes to amend the Lamont County Land Use Bylaw. THEREFORE TAKE NOTICE THAT pursuant to Section 606 of the Municipal Government Act a Public Hearing to consider the proposed amendment will be held:

Date: Thursday, March 15, 2018 Time: 7:00 PM Place: Lamont Meeting Room, Lamont Arena, 4844 - 48 Avenue, Lamont, AB

Excitement builds for Mundare’s Zombie Run JOHN MATHER Zombies will be taking over Mundare’s Ukraina Park on the east end of town. On Saturday, May 12, the 341 Mundare Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron will host its first obstacles course race. “It’s definitely a fun run,” said organizer Sheryl Jamison, of the 341 Zombie Run. “Runners will wear a strip of cloth and cadets dressed as zombies will try to grab that. Runners have three lives and must try to make it through the obstacle course. If they lose their lives, they still have to complete the course. It’s not a contact run.” Jamison got the idea from participating in a similar run in southern Alberta a couple of years ago. Appearing before Mundare council on Feb. 20, Jamison gave an

update on the 5k event that will be open to participants of ages 10 and up. She said because of the town’s location near Hwy. 16, the cadets are hoping for a large turnout from across the area. Up to 500 people can participate, according to Jamison, adding that was the upper limit. The entry fee is $45 until Feb. 28; $50 until  April 30; and $60 after. Each participant receives a bottle of water and t-shirt; and Jamison hopes to have medals but the $1,000 expense may prove too much. Insurance for the event is pegged at about $1,500 to $1,800 but organizers are still seeking other quotes. She asked council if the town could help out with materials for obstacles, such as culverts, large tires, straw bales, net-

ting, and other things to climb over or under. Councillor Irene Talaga asked Jamison if the town could assist with traffic control or anything the fire department could help with. Jamison is looking for a variety of volunteers to take photos during the event, assist with make up, and engage in other chores. “There’s a really positive buzz going around,” she stated. People can sign up for the event at the Running Room website: aceIOD=14878

Wild Pink Yonder cancer drive has fundraiser at Chipman Hotel MAUREEN SULLIVAN "Did you know that one in eight women will face breast cancer every year? That's 5,000 women and 42 men." So says Jane Hurl the president and founder of the Wild Pink Yonder, a horse riding, money raising and cancer fighting organization based in Lamont. They had a fundraiser dinner at the Chipman Hotel on Saturday, February 17, 2018. Jane who was diagnosed with cancer in

2006 calls herself a Cancer Warrior, as there is no cure for breast cancer. She organized these rides as a way to raise money for cancer research. Women and men and children over the age of 12 have participated in these rides since 2008. Each participant must raise at least $150 and provide transportation for their horses and sleeping accommodations - and Wild Pink Yonder provides everything else.

So far they have raised $960,000 and will break the one million dollar mark this year. They have donated to the Cancer Research Institute of Northern Alberta, giving $50,000 dollars each to 2 innovation grants, one that is measuring how Omega 3's are measured in the blood level before and after cancer. The second to study how fat cells are spread in cancer. They also supported Cancer Care Manitoba, BC Cancer Foundation

and the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency. The riders who were at the Chipman Hotel all spoke about the camaraderie on the rides and the beautiful scenery. Julia, a two-time breast cancer survivor and the mother of a breast cancer survivor, said, "Everyone

knows someone who is touched by cancer and this is a great way to spend time with others who also love horses. I saw more of Alberta in 21 days than I ever have." This year there will be at least three weekend

rides instead of the 23 day, 23 town ride they had in 2017. "Come out and ride yourself, or sponsor a rider, or volunteer," says Jane. For further information visit or follow their Facebook page.

Lamont County Schools have Pink Shirt Day Hurtfulness of cyberbullying tackled this year MAUREEN SULLIVAN February 28th is Pink Shirt Day in support of Anti-bullying. Students in all the Lamont County schools and their teachers wore pink to show support for victims of bullying and had activities going on at their schools, from assemblies to posting pink paper t-shirts with supportive sayings, to creating a video against bullying. Pink Shirt Day began in Berwick Nova Scotia in 2007 when David Sheppard and Travis Price bought and distributed 50 pink t-shirts after a male Grade 9 student was bullied for wearing a pink shirt to the first day of school. This year the focus of the day’s events will be Cyberbullying. What is cyberbullying? It is sending mean and sometimes threatening emails or text messages; spreading gossip, secrets or rumours about another person that will damage that person's reputation; creating a blog or website that have stories, cartoons, pictures or jokes ridiculing others; creating polling websites where visitors are asked to rate individuals attributes in a negative manner; taking an embarrassing photo of someone and emailing that photo to others; posting false or hurtful messages online; deliberately excluding others from instant messaging and email contact lists. The world is more connected than it has ever been. Skype, email, Facebook, or Twitter are available at an instant's notice and today's teenagers have never known a world without the internet. They are very adept at picking up new technology and using electronics to create social networks. But what happens when the technology that is supposed to bring people together is used instead to bully and abuse others. Unlike other forms of bullying, the

harassment, humiliation and intimidation of cyberbullying occurs 24 hours a day. There is no safe zone. Kids who cyberbully others are able to hide behind the technology, remaining anonymous if they choose. They don't immediately see the reaction to their posts which might spark some empathy for the pain they caused. Kids who witness cyberbullying by receiving messages or forwarding them to others don't consider themselves part of the problem. Forwarding hurtful messages or content can increase the number of people who witness the bullying by thousands, instantly. Liking a message or passing it on tells the person who is cyberbullying that his or her behaviour is okay and makes it easier for that person to become more aggressive and vicious. Those who are cyberbullied feel a sense of isolation, fear, loneliness and despair. Their desperation can sometimes lead to acts of self harm or even suicide. The advice of PrevNet an authority on research and resources for bullying prevention in Canada - Stop and think before you send or resend something. Never treat someone online in a way that you wouldn't do their face. Always stand up to bullying behaviour you see online. If you know who the sender is, let them know that cyberbullying is not okay with you but do not get dragged into a debate about it. If you know the person on the receiving end reach out to them and let them know you care. Even if you didn't create an email or message, forwarding it to friends means you have participated in the bullying of another and you are now part of the problem. If you delete it and refuse to pass it on you become part of the solution.

Bruderheim Council to enter into bylaw enforcement deal with Strathcona JOHN MATHER Bruderheim council will enter into an agreement with Strathcona County to provide; peace officer, by-law enforcement and weed control functions through to 2020. Bruderheim’s CAO Patty Podoborozny reported to council that the County of Lamont couldn’t provide the services and Bruderheim wasn’t big enough to have its own resources. “Strathcona has provided this in the past,” she added. “With the new contract we’ll be maintaining the same service levels.” Councillor Len Falardeau asked to table the motion until a meeting with Fort Saskatchewan RCMP was held to see if they

could provide some of the services. “I think they could provide the peace officer and we could avoid a duplication of service,” he said. “Maybe we should just look to Strathcona for by-law and weed control.” Popdoborozny said a meeting with Fort Saskatchewan RCMP was scheduled for March 7, but the RCMP wouldn’t enforce town by-laws. “With the Strathcona contract we can dictate what we want,” said Podoborozny. But she added the current deal with the county had expired so she wanted council to move quickly to renew it. Falardeau’s motion to table was defeated and council moved to enter into a new contract with

Strathcona. “The peace officers provide a good service to our town,” said Councillor George Campbell. Podoborozny also told council that the contract required Strathcona to control all employment issues such as CPP deductions and the peace officer would represent Bruderheim in any court actions. Town provides school grants Council approved using the Bruderheim Community Investment program to provide $1,000 to the Bruderheim preschool for classroom upgrades and new equipment and $800 to the Bruderheim School council for a community BBQ and dance.

Ice skating performances were held in Andrew recently.

The program was established in 2016 as a way to assist community groups in hosting events that benefit the entire community. Although councillor George Campbell opposed the $800 expenditure, the motion to support both projects were carried. “I don’t feel that’s a good use of taxpayer dollars,” he said. “I may be old school but at the end of the year the staff and students used to find ways to hold these events on their own.” Campbell further added that the funds are supposed to be used for programs and that he didn’t this as a programming item. Mayor Karl Hauch replied there was no provincial funding for this kind of event and it is an integral part of the community. “It’s a popular event with kids and community combined,” he said “It’s a very viable part of our community,” added Councillor Falardeau. “The town should step up to help the community out.” “I think it’s a wonderful program to support,” said Councillor Judy Schueler. “It’s a well attended community

event. It’s not only kids and staff from the school attending.” Administration to study park funding options Bruderheim will know by Feb. 28  if a $200,000 grant for the community park will be approved. “Does administration have a plan should we not get this grant?” asked Mayor Karl Hauch. “Maybe we could apply for a smaller grant, but I feel administration should explore a back up plan.” Councillor Campbell moved a motion for administration to look into this and it was passed. Council wants Cenovus meeting Mayor Hauch reported that he had read in an article in the  Oil

Sands magazine that stated Cenovus Energy was working with both CP and CN rail to increase its crude-by-rail export capacity out of its Bruderheim facility. The facility is located east of the town in Lamont County. Cenovus purchased the loading terminal from Canexus in 2015 for $75 million and it currently has a crude capacity of about 100,000 barrels per day. “The benefits to Bruderheim would be indirect but any growth in the region will benefit us either adding residents or helping our businesses,” said Hauch. He asked Bruderheim’s CAO to ask Cenovus representatives to come to council to give an update on their plan.

ROBERT WARREN COLIN JOHNSON August 7, 1978 March 3, 1998 In loving memory of a precious Son, Brother, Grandson, Nephew, Cousin, Uncle, and Friend. I heard your voice in the wind today, And turned to see your face; The warmth of the wind caressed me, As I stood silently in place. I felt your touch in the sun today, As its warmth filled the sky; I closed my eyes for your embrace, And my spirit soared high. I held you close in my heart today, It made me feel complete; You have passed... But you are not gone, You will always be a part of me. As long as the sun shines, rain falls... The wind blows; You will live on inside of me forever, For that is all my heart knows. May the winds of love blow gently; And whisper so you can hear; How much we love and miss you, And wish that you were here. Lovingly Remembered and Sadly Missed, Your Family and Friends ________________________ In Loving Memory of Frank Voltner February 21, 2015 It only takes a little space, To write how much we miss you. But it will take the rest of our lives, To forget the day we lost you. If tears could build a stairway, And memories a lane, We’d walk right up to heaven, And bring you home again. Forever Remembered By All Your Family.

Chipman Historical Society meets to discuss operations Main purpose to preserve hall

MAUREEN SULLIVAN The Chipman Historical Society held a meeting on Friday Februry 23, 2018 to discuss last year’s successes and this year’s plans. The Society was established May 30, 2005, with its main purpose to preserve the Chipman National Hall for the enjoyment of current and future generations. The hall was built in 1926, and it is one of two structures of its kind left in Alberta. In 2004 the Town of Chipman bought the Hall from the Ukrainian Catholic Church Board who felt they could not manage it anymore. Since then the society has put a new kitchen in the hall, upgraded the bathrooms, had the murals re-painted and bought curtains for the stage. While always looking for new members, the Historical Society has a special interest in collecting photos and stories about life in Chipman over the years. “In ten years who will be left that remembers the way Chipman was,” asked John Stribling, the current President. The next meeting will be April 27, 2018 where the society’s main fundraiser, a perogy lunch at the Show n shine, will be discussed.

Lamont County Food Bank helps with over 1,000 kg of food monthly MAUREEN SULLIVAN The Lamont County Food Bank is always looking for donations. "While people in this community are very generous it always helps to have the word out ," said Jody, manager of the food bank which can be found in the Lamont Alliance Church. This past year, 439 hampers were given out which fed 737 adults and 411 children. They started weighing the food that comes in and goes out back in August. 5,652.91 kg of food had gone out from August to December. Clients of the Food Bank must have their requests for help in on Tuesday by noon and they will be given a food hamper once a month. To qualify for the hamper they must bring a bill proving they live in the county, and identification for every member of the family such as a Health card. None of this information is stored by the food bank. The Food Bank is happy to take food or cash as donations. With the cash they are able to buy meat which has to be bought to meet with government guidelines about proper storage and freezing. They are also able to buy fresh produce and any sale items from the grocery store. They currently have a need for 1kg size Peanut Butter and jam. They would also like canned vegetables and fruit in a variety of flavours. The food bank posts on its Facebook page the most needed item for the upcoming week. They have been very lucky to work with the Bruderheim and Lamont Agricultural Societies last year who donated fresh vegetables from the community garden. They are looking forward to working with them again this year and would very much appre-
