Storm blows in major blast of winter KERRY ANDERSON A winter storm smashed into Alberta including the Lamont County area Jan. 25 and 26 when over 25 cm of snow crippled travel and caused several accidents. Many residents had difficulty getting to work as high winds, blowing snow and a large amount of snowfall caused Lamont County residents to get out the snow shovels, blowers and

plows. After colder weather set in Jan. 26 the snowfall warnings ended and cold weather of -25 C. set in at night.

Super Blue Blood Moon BY MAUREEN SULLIVAN On January 31, 2018 we will experience a rare Super Blue Blood Moon. This is the first time since 1866 a blue super moon will coincide with a lunar eclipse. It is also the last oversized moon until January 2019. A super moon occurs when the moon’s closest approach to earth coincides with a full moon. Astronomers call this a perigee full moon. The moon will reach its shortest distance from us at 2:55 am MT on January 30. The best time to see a super moon is shortly after sunset. A blue moon refers to the second full moon in a calendar month. There was a full moon January 2, 2018 and January 31st is the second full moon of the month. A spectacular total lunar eclipse will accompany this blue moon shining red across parts of Canada, Russia, Asia and Australia. This February will have a black moon, which is the absence of a full moon in a month. This can only happen in the month of February. The following March will have another blue moon with a full moon on the 2nd and 31st.

Opinion Time for social media to be legally accountable for itself Obviously I promote free speech as much as anyone, but I was happy to find out that the RCMP have arrested an Alberta man and charged him for uttering threats on Twitter against Prime Minister Trudeau and Premier Notley. It’s time for some law and order. The suspect from the Leduc area, reportedly has past offences including firearms and alcohol related ones which may have something to do with the recent arrest. The nature of the alleged threats to the government leaders have not been uncovered, and the person’s Facebook page leads to no conclusions while the Twitter account has been suspended. Court records have stated that the person made death threats against both politicians and was arrested on Jan. 19, but since released with the conditions that no contact be made with the PM or Premier, and there be no use of social media until the Feb. 8 court hearing in Leduc. With limited information, I can't say whether these charges are more valid than many others I have read on Twitter (which is a social media outlet for the intellectually curious, opinionated, just plain mean, or all three). But what I will say is that it is about time social media is held accountable for what is said and who gets hurt by unfounded allegations and threats, both locally and internationally. I purchase libel insurance for all our newspapers each year costing thousands, just in case one of our journalists makes an unretractable error. I also pay into the Alberta Press Council, which protects the public from unfair journalism. But first let me clarify, if true, a public statement can not be libelous. However, statements made that are untrue and published on social media which cause a person, company or organization a provable loss of revenue due to the spread of lies can be the basis for a defamation lawsuit. The purposeful spread of misinformation to help social or political causes has always been a problem, but with the internet and social media reaching international proportions the use of misinformation is rampant. The spread of misinformation is so common that it is really unclear what is true and what is false anymore. Though it is impossible for law enforcement to properly police this global monster, when reported it should be the owners of Facebook and Twitter - as well as site moderators and writers who should be legally responsible. Offences occur daily on social media, and retribution is long overdue. Kerry Anderson

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Churches getting scalped in utility charges, government more interested in marijuana Dear Editor: This is an open letter to the premier. I am a member of a small country church in East Central Alberta. I wasn’t involved in paying the utility bills, so I did not know the extent of them until our treasurer got sick and I got involved. I saw the charges on our power bill. One month we consumed $22.83 worth of power plus the other standard charges, plus $272.28 in demand charges. I proceeded to check with the utility suppliers and was told that all churches fall under the A-1 Commercial category. My question to you is why are churches classed under this category when we are registered as a nonprofit charitable organization? Upon checking with some of the local churches I found that even with a consumption of $5, the demand was still around $250.

We open our church on the average of two times a month and as you can see our power bill is in the $300 range. A few days ago, we received our gas utility bill and were also charged an outrageous carbon tax of over $50. I think that it is very unfair that in a province like this, that we have to scalp churches when they are having a hard time staying open. The government seems to be more interested in selling marijuana than keeping the religious life of its people alive. I am urging the executives of all churches to get on the bandwagon and lobby the government and the Alberta Utilities Commission to change the designation of churches. The address for the utilities commission is Concerned citizen, Fred Pewarchuk

Cattle Herd Health and Nutrition Workshop at St. Michael MAUREEN SULLIVAN Lamont County ASB presented its Cattle Herd Health and Nutrition Workshop at St. Michael Hall on Thursday January 25. Dr. Lacey Fowler, D.V.M. of the Viking Veterinary Clinc presented on overall health and vaccinations of the herd. Barry Yaremcio, Beef and Forage Specialist with Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, presented on forage quality, cow condition, nutrition and vitamin supplementation.

Dr. Fowler covered what a vaccine is, where they fit into a disease protocol, where they fit into a vaccine protocol, the economics of vaccinating and recognizing when you have a herd health problem. She stressed that a vaccine plan is very specific to each herd. She highly suggested that ranchers check out the Western Canadian Cow Calf Survey and receive a $25 gift card for filling it out. Mr. Yaremcio talked about the protein level in the herd’s feed, death

rates due to vitamin deficiencies and water quality. When it comes to win-

ter temperatures, -20 C is the critical number, you must add 2 lbs of feed for every 10 C it drops. A

Together, we can keep the St. Michael Landfill a clean, environmentally friendly part of our planet! The St Michael Landfill site, St. Michael Regional Solid Waste Commission is a Class II facility that accepts non-hazardous materials. Every load brought to the landfill site is weighed and directed to the proper disposal area. Household garbage goes to the working face with separate areas for; antifreeze, batteries, concrete, electronic waste, household hazardous waste, metal, plastic fertilizer bottles, oil containers, paints, tires, waste oil, waste oil filters, and wood branches. The working face is compacted daily and covered. We do not charge for household refuse generated during the routine operations of a family dwelling. We want our Lamont County residents to be able to use the landfill safely and in an environmentally sustainable way for years to come so we require proof of residency. if you are new to the Lamont County Region, please bring a copy of your tax notice, power bill, natural gas or water bill with your municipal or civic address and/or legal description, as the land owners are listed in the computer. This will allow us to make sure people from out of our area arenʼt using your landfill as dumping grounds.

Recycling Itʼs good for the health of our earth! The St Michael Landfill Site operates a basic recycling program which is being expanded. There are designated areas that allow residents to drop off of recyclable items and keep these items from being landfilled.

Here are some of the things we can recycle for you Anti-freeze Batteries Concrete E-waste (anything that plugs in) Fertilizer & Pesticide Agricultural Chemical Bottles (triple rinsed caps and booklets removed)

Weʼll help you identify and dispose of

Household Hazardous Waste before it contaminates our land and water.

Never pour household hazardous waste products down the drain and never mix with your regular trash The St. Michael Landfill operates a year round Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) and Material Recovery program to ensure proper disposal of these potentially harmful chemicals and compounds from your home. Bring it to us for proper and safe disposal. Any questions or tips about reducing your HHW, please phone 780-702-9880 or visit our website.

The Lamont Leader (Lamont, Alberta), Wednesday, January 31, 2018- 13


By Hazel Anaka At a recent conference speaker Curt Steinhorst’s keynote address was called Thriving in the Age of Distraction. He’s a talented guy I’ve had the pleasure of hearing

before and this time was no exception. Not only is his material fact-based but he offers simple solutions to keep this from being “just another speech.” Regrettably the simplest solutions aren’t necessarily the easiest to implement. Don’tcha hate when that happens? Solutions that are succinct, catchy, self-evident, so bloody simple you wonder how you didn’t figure it out yourself. Greater minds than mine have studied why we don’t do what we should so I’m not replowing that ground here. Besides, if I had the failsafe method I’d be on

the speaker’s circuit. So here’s the deal. Never in the history of man have we been so distracted. From our start as cave dwellers to 2018, we’ve collectively had to assimilate the advent of writing, the printing press, driving, and now everything. We are distracted because of change in access. Unless we choose otherwise there is unfettered access to us and from us to the world 24-7. Forty percent of distraction is from the outside in. Math genius that I am says that most of it is then internal. Endless access equals limited attention.

WORLD LITERACY DAY Mundare School gathered in the gymnasium for World Literacy Day this week, as the whole school (staff even brought their “home reading” books), listened to a story, and then spent 15 minutes reading to themselves.


Attention is our most precious and limited resource. Lest you believe it’s only millennials who are distracted, think again. The evils of distraction are widely known so I won’t list them here. Not every task requires our full attention but those that do, do: long-term memory, problem solving, critical thinking. And forget multitasking. Though listening to music without words, doodling, and listening to audio books while doing housework can be selectively paired if the attention required is medium or light. Assuming we agree that we’re missing what’s important (however we define that) what real things can we do to stem the tide? • Understand that most

people lose energy right after lunch and at the end of the day so plan accordingly. • Take a hard look at our environment. Does it facilitate or rob attention? • Use Evernote or similar tool for note taking with easy access/recall when we do have an attention burst. • Spend two minutes imagining the best possible outcome for the day. • Use filtering questions to decide if you should say yes, no, or not now when someone wants your attention: o What do I want? o What do they need? o What can I do? • Turn off push notifications on your phone. • Use ‘do not disturb’ in your phone settings with all but your loved ones. • Un-enroll from exter-

nal intrusions into the inbox of your life. • Use Freedom to block apps, websites, or the entire internet from your devices. • Don’t be a one-manband caricature. Use ‘binoculars’ to focus on the one important thing right now. • Build a ‘focus vault’ when you are unavailable to anyone for any reason. Aim for two forty-minute sessions per day. Similar escapes worked for guys like Einstein, Darwin, and Nietzsche. We didn’t get here overnight so we won’t fix it overnight either. But if we want to stop frittering away our time and our lives it will take awareness and action. Now, if you’ll excuse I’m going into my focus vault, from where I sit.

Alberta Party meet and greet at Fort Saskatchewan, UCP has formed local constituency association JOHN MATHER Lamont County voters will have to travel to Fort Saskatchewan if they want to share a meet and greet prior to the upcoming Alberta Party leadership vote. The Fort Saskatchewan-Vegreville constituency organization has arranged the gathering between Calgary South East MLA Rick Fraser, Calgary lawyer Kara Levis, and former Edmonton mayor and MLA Stephen Mandel, said constituency president Jonathan Jacobs. “This is the only time all the candidates will be together in our constituency,” said Jacobs. “Candidates

may come out into other areas on their own, but the window for campaigning is fairly short.” Party members will vote for the party leaders between Feb. 25-27, 2018 and membership sales will be cut off on Feb. 12. An online ballot system will be used to determine the leader. The Fort Saskatchewan meeting will take place on Feb. 5 at the Dow Centennial Centre, with the meeting starting at 6:30 p.m. It is scheduled to run until 8:30 p.m. in the Lions Pride Room. While the event is free, Jacobs is encouraging attendees to make a dona-

tion to the party. Meanwhile, the United Conservative Party (UCP) has established a local constituency association and is getting strong support throughout the Bruderheim and Lamont area, said their president Sheryl Lazaruk. “We established our Fort Saskatchewan-Vegreville constituency association in September,” Lazaruk stated. Local directors include – Cameron Stobbe, Reid and Diane Lopushinsky, Jerry Semen, Judy Schueler, Jared Semen, Mylissa Greening and Laila Goodridge. Lazaruk added the group has been
