Summer-like weather was the perfect compliment to the handsome and beautiful graduates of Andrew School. There was time for a group photo of the Class of 2017 as well as plenty of photos with family and friends who had gathered for the milestone event on Saturday, June 3 in Andrew. Pictured from left to right: Dawson Danyluk, Tyra Shulko, Bryce Hrehorets, Ryan Leliuk and Ryan Zukiwski.

Dr. Seuss inspired valedictorian speech Good evening, I have some advice I’d like to share with my graduating class. For my valedictorian speech I have taken some passages by the well known author Dr. Seuss, and put my own spin on it. I really had fun making this speech. Ninety-five per cent of this is original, so I do hope it goes well. I hope you enjoy it, Oh I so hope you do; I hope you listen and maybe learn a thing or two. Congratulations! Today is your day. You’re off to Great Places! You’re off and away! You’ve come from a small town, a small school, but now’s your chance to get out there and play. Be somebody big, be somebody grand, don’t sit here with your feet in the

sand. You have brains in your head, and feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where you go. There are games to be won, success to succeed, you’ll be famous as famous can be…but sometimes this is not so, I’m afraid that you’ll play lonely games too. Games you can’t win cause you’ll play against you. But on you will go, through rain or through sleet, cause you of all people will not be beat. Class of 2017, let’s not settle for average, NO! Whatever your path, this needn’t be so. Be farmers, be soldiers, be tradesmen too, maybe even an animal behaviourist (whatever that is), will do.

So make up your mind, and make it up quick, for it isn’t about the shoes you pick; it’s where those shoes take you and whether you succeed in your own eyes, not the rest of the lot. Cause in the end, when it’s all said and done, the only one left is you, whether you’ve lost or you’ve won. Let’s not settle for anything less than great, and let’s make sure we master our fate. Let’s not settle for anything less than we can DO, and let’s not settle for anything less than YOU. Just never forget to be dexterous and deft, and never mix up your right foot with your left. And will you succeed? Yes! You will indeed. Ninety-eight and 3/4 per cent guaranteed.

Kid you’ll move mountains. So….be your name Bryce, Dawson, Tyra, Ryan or Ryan again. You’re off to great places, today is your day. Your mountain is waiting. So get on your way. Wow, that was a mouthful. Thank you for listening. Tyra Shulko

Housing officials continue to explore options for Andrew Lodge Michelle Pinon Editor

Members of the Lamont County Housing Foundation (LCHF) recently held a special meeting in the Village of Andrew. LCHF Chief Executive Officer Harold James said the board is still exploring options to

keep the Andrew Senior Citizens Lodge viable, this after months of consultations with the public, staff, consultants and senior government housing officials. “We are still exploring options such as meeting the needs of special populations and will explore opportunities with various government agen-

cies who are contracted to provide services to special populations such as Persons with D e v e l o p m e n t Disabilities, Mental Health Rehab, etc.” James said none of the exploratory opportunities “will happen overnight” and says they “will need to be patient” in the meantime.

community engagement meeting about the future of the Andrew lodge. At that time, facilitators and consultants Dr. Bonnie Dobbs and Gary Gordon discussed various ideas and options, and received direct feedback and questions from attendees.

“In any event, there has been no discussion about closing the Andrew Lodge, rather the board is committed to finding a meaningful, viable, efficient and sustainable opportunity for keeping our lodge in operation in Andrew.” Back on Monday, January 9, a total of 68 people attended the

The Lamont Leader (Lamont, Alberta), Tuesday, June 6, 2017 - 5

Opinion Letter to the Editor: Crichton on knowing the answers Dear Editor, Nobel Prize-winning scientist Ivar Giaever famously said that global warming is a new religion that operates in a similar fashion to the medieval church, back when you couldn’t ask questions or discuss anything without fear of reprisal. American author Michael Crichton takes Giaever’s observations even further. Crichton’s books (which include Jurassic Park, The Andromeda Strain, and State of Fear) feature storylines based on meticulously researched science, and have sold hundreds of millions of copies. Crichton passed away a few years ago.

Yet because of his books and speeches, he remains an important popularizer of scientific ideas, and is therefore still considered one of the world’s most influential and respected climate skeptics. Before he studied climate change, Crichton said his ideas “were highly conventional— pretty much like everyone else’s.” He believed the often-repeated media reports about global warming. It was while preparing for a book that Crichton began researching climate issues, only to find that the things he read didn’t make sense. Assuming there must be something he didn’t understand, he dug

deeper, looking for hard evidence and details. Crichton discussed his findings with others, only to learn that his honest questions were labelled “controversial.” He said it surprised him because he’d never considered the idea of people being unable to predict the future as controversial. Climate alarmists were saying they knew what the temperature would be fifty or a hundred years from now, and the evidence simply didn’t support those claims. Having been trained in anthropology, Crichton said he quickly recognized how major elements of modern environmentalism had

become a religion. He said that religious feelings are inherent in human beings, and that whenever those feelings are not being expressed in a church, synagogue, or mosque, they can easily “float off” and attach themselves to other things—like climate change. “A religion is a collective set of beliefs,” Crichton said. Its leaders promote the beliefs and its followers change their lifestyles to match. A person’s total idea of what’s right, what’s wrong, what’s good, and what’s bad ends up being based on their religious values. Crichton said that the religion of climate change even maps

(copies) other religious ideas such as the JudeoChristian doctrine of the Fall, in which the earth used to be an Eden, but then people came along and ruined it. Crichton regretted the fact that climate alarmists were derailing the environmental movement from what it should be focused upon. He said that alarmists turning climate change into a religion was “too bad,” because the world “really needs a good environmental movement… [but] the environmental movement is not doing what it needs to do.” Crichton said we are now being confronted by climate change funda-

mentalists who, like all religious fundamentalists, “are really good at saying, ‘I know the answer and you don’t.’” “Science offers us the only way out of politics,” Crichton said. “If we allow science to become politicized, then we are lost…. We will enter the Internet version of the dark ages, an era of shifting fears and wild prejudices, transmitted to people who don’t know any better. That’s not a good future for the human race.” Kevin Avram Grassroots Alberta

Alberta Bill 17: The fair and family friendly workplaces act I am writing to comment on the efforts by the Government of Alberta to modernize labour legislation in the province and extend it to farm operations. First off, I think the reforms are long overdue and are only catching up to what other jurisdictions, including Saskatchewan, have done in whole or in part. Ending the exemption of farm operations from labour standards and labour relations legislation is something that should have occurred in the 20th century. Providing for the ability of farm workers to unionize simply acknowledges a right they have under Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Those who oppose the relatively modest reforms spelled out in

Bill 17 resort to shrill hyperbole in expressing their opposition. For example, farm workers in Saskatchewan have had the right to unionize since 1945 and no one can claim it’s been a negative factor whatsoever in determining the fate of agriculture or the family farm. People who oppose the right of farm workers to join a union seem to believe they have something to fear and maybe they do, if they’re the kind of employer who doesn’t have fair or respectful employment practices. Workers join unions when they want dignity and respect in the workplace. Even with the passage of Bill 17 the prospect of small groups of farm workers banding together and unionizing seems fairly remote if the

Saskatchewan experience over the last seventy-two years is any indication. Unfortunately economic realities and the relative isolation of farm workers present serious barriers to unionizing farm operations. These barriers can only be overcome if there is some form of sectoral representation and collective bargaining and that is not provided for in Alberta’s Bill 17. The right to unionize is no less integral to a democracy than the right to vote. Opposing legislative recognition of the right to unionize, however symbolic it might be in relation to farm workers in Alberta, is akin to defending the master and servant dynamics of past centuries. It is ironic that opponents use social media platforms to express their pre-19th

century prejudices. In my opinion, the same flaws are present in the arguments against extending minimum labour standards requirements to farm operations. Why should farm operations be exempt when the local garage, grocery store or farm supply outlet aren’t exempt. In the entire supply chain serving farms that produce field crops for shipping and processing only the farm is exempt from m i n i m u m labour standards legislation. This is an a n a c h ro n i s t i c continuation from the time

when the “mom and pop” family farm was the prevailing norm. By the way, mom, pop and other members of the family are exempt from coverage by Bill 17, but why let facts get in the

way of the ideological rantings of those who want democracy for themselves and servitude for others. Sincerely, Hugh Wagner

Surge in visitors reported at Alberta heritage sites Michelle Pinon Editor

The Victoria Day long weekend saw a huge increase in the number of visitors to Alberta’s heritage sites. One of those sites, the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village, (UCHV) had more than 2,800 visitors over the holiday weekend. Altogether, provincial historic sites, museums and archives, (20 in total) saw a 24 per cent increase. More than 21,100 people celebrated the Victoria Day long weekend, (May 20-22) compared with last year’s May long weekend attendance of 16,078. According to Alberta Culture and Tourism, the largest jump in attendance was at UCHV, an increase of 84 per cent over 2016, mainly attributable to the bad weather in 2016. “I’m thrilled that our historic sites, museums and archives continue to be a big hit with Albertans,” Ricardo Miranda, Minister of Culture and Tourism. “They are great places to

learn, have fun, and connect with the past. This is a true example of how Alberta’s heritage continues to play a vital role in making life better for families and growing Alberta’s tourism sector.” Only two kilometres west of UCHV, Elk Island National Park (EINP)was also busy, with around 2,400 visitors. The weather was absolutely beautiful and many visitors and campers got a glimpse of the new baby bison, and took part in nature walks, interpretive programs and picnics. The total number of visitors for the month in May was more than 33,000 visitors. There was also an increase in the campground of 53 per cent more nights booked last month. One of the programs that has been expanded this year at EINP is the Learn-to Camp (LTC) program. According to Robyn O’Neill, Partnering, Engagement & Communications Officer, “One of the selected hubs for the new program is Edmonton, where the

Learn-to Camp program, based out of EINP, will focus its expanded activities. In addition to the traditional full overnight LTC program, which takes place on June 24 and 25 at EINP, there will also be additional programming through day and outreach activities taking place throughout the summer in Edmonton parks, community centres, and other public spaces. Much of the new programming associated with the expanded LTC program will be of a drop-in nature and free for public participation.” On Sunday, June 25 UCHV will be hosting it’s annual Vintage Day. There will be a spectacular display of vintage cars, trucks, motorcycles and tractors to view. Visitors to UCHV will also be able to catch a glimpse of the Swing Out Edmonton dancers and enjoy the musical talents during the Kalyna Voice competition. Visitors will also be able to enjoy historic and children’s activities as well as traditional Ukrainian food and the

From Where I Sit: Last I Heard

By Hazel Anaka Here it is the beginning of June and it looks like we may get last year’s crop harvested and the 2017 crop seeded, minus wet spots, sloughs, mini lakes. Woohoo. It has been a trial. And as always there are some worse off and better off than us. When I stop and take inventory—and I do— we didn’t have a bona fide winter getaway. We nearly had a Vegas quickie with relatives. Not because we’re huge

gamblers (we’re not) or because we have tickets to some big act (we don’t). It didn’t work out for a variety of reasons. The regular family winter trip to Palm Springs didn’t happen. Roy and I didn’t leap at a trip to an all-inclusive Mexican resort partly because of our schedules and partly because of the weak Canadian dollar. My Banff writers’ retreat was aborted by my fall and subsequent injuries. And so we find ourselves here. This is the busiest time of the year before you throw in weather anomalies like this one. So what has become our default position is taking mini breaks. We’ve got one more play out of a threepart mini-pak at the Mayfield Dinner Theatre. There is no doubt there are many options for

scheduling small distractions, no matter your interests. The Citadel Theatre has been deluging me with regular sales mailers. The latest pitch is for six plays in the 2017-2018 season. I sit firmly astride the fence so far.

For my birthday I got a gift card for a month of unlimited classes at Lifestyle Meditation, ‘Edmonton’s first meditation and mindfulnessonly based studio’. Don’tcha feel better just thinking about it? We know dining experiences galore exist. There are continuing education classes in every subject under the sun. I’ve got a gift certificate for a special room rate at the Best Western Camrose Resort and Casino that expires in September. There are spas, greenhouses, museums, galleries,

libraries, shopping malls all wanting a chunk of our disposable time and money. So we know choices exist. The critical thing is to actually choose. We need activities that provide a mental, physical, emotional reprieve from our daily grind. And we can’t leave it to chance or hope they fall into our outstretched hands. It’s a matter of safeguarding our mental health, of resting and renewing so we can summon the courage to face our real life with all its must-do obligations. With unemployment hurting so many and

lasting a few hours. Unless you’re a total useless lay about who hasn’t worked a day in your life, you need this. Last I heard there are no medals for martyrdom, from where I sit.

with a weak dollar and safety concerns, foreign travel may not be feasible. I implore you to find ways to get the break you need within the reality of your circumstances. It may be as small as a free outing

New federal PC leader chosen SUBMITTED ARTICLE Conservative members from all regions of Canada elected the party’s new leader on Saturday, May 27, the youngest Speaker in Canadian history who served during the previous government, the MP for Regina Qu’appelle in Saskatchewan, Andrew Scheer. “I am excited that Conservative members elected Andrew to lead our movement into the next election. He, his family, and his team ran exactly the kind of campaign they set out to do: Andrew focused on the issues that unite us, on the future, and on Conservative principles and values,” said Shannon Stubbs, MP for Lakeland. “Conservative members and MPs are looking forward to working with Andrew to grow our party, and to earn the confidence of Canadians.” Stubbs has been an active member of Scheer’s leadership team since he launched his bid, along with 24 of her Conservative colleagues. Stubbs’ riding of Lakeland gave Scheer the second highest level of support of Alberta ridings represented by MPs. “Andrew positively articulates core Conservative values low taxes for every day

Andrew Graduation Speakers offer enlightenment Michelle Pinon Editor The 2017 Andrew School graduation class was the smallest in over 70 years, but they were no less important and the celebration was just as momentus for the five students who walked across the stage to receive their diplomas on Saturday, June 3. The atmosphere was very relaxed and it seemed more like a family reunion rather than a formal graduation. Ironically, three of the featured speakers had also received their high school diplomas from Andrew School. The first of those three speakers was Elk Island Public Schools trustee Colleen Holowaychuk, who stood on the very same stage 27 years ago to receive her high school diploma. “I just want to share a little story about a few months ago with you. I have to say that I was very torn about this grad as I have another family event happening today. I struggled because I really wanted to be here and still needed to attend my other event. However, a few months ago I ran into Dawson and his sister in Walmart. We got chatting about grad and he asked if I was coming, I told him the situation and that I might ask another trustee to attend on my behalf, which was

tough as those of you who know me, know how dear this school is to me. “His reaction was probably one of the best things I’ve experienced as a trustee. He said “Really? I really wanted you to be there and to speak at my grad. “I think as a trustees we often wonder if the students we try to make the best decisions for everyday even know who we are let alone want us to attend their graduation. “Well in that moment, struggling through, I admit, a few tears of pride, I knew my answer… All I said was “I’ll be there! I’ll make it work! “I realized that we do make a difference in the lives of the students our decisions affect every day and in more than just the classroom. Thank you Dawson for reminding me of that. Just wanted to share as it will stay near and dear to me as one of the most special moments of being of a trustee!” For former Alberta Premier Ed Stelmach it had been 46 years since he sat on the stage and received his high school diploma. “I would like to offer you my sincere congratulations. You should be very proud of your achievements.” Stelmach also told the graduates that unexpected things can happen, and to deal with those situations as

best they can. He was ready to go into law school when his brother died unexpectedly, and he returned to the homestead to farm with his wife Marie. “All four of our children graduated from here,” said Stelmach that reminded the grads that just because they come from a small community doesn’t mean they can’t achieve great things. Guest Speaker Betty Farris, told the crowd she, too, graduated from Andrew School. That was in 1971. She also taught in the school for 30 years before retiring. “It was the same school. It was the same stage, although it was not as well decorated and we weren’t as well dressed, but we were there,” said Farris. “I am honored to be your Principal and honoured to work in this unique community. Although the journey has been hard you have passed through with style and graduated. I really hope you appreciate the wonderful things you have learned and take them with you into the future. There is no real magic formula for success in life, indeed the things you have learned here are the basic building blocks of your future life,” stated TJ Kennerd. • “First off you have had a target of achieving graduation all through school

which you have achieved with the grades you require. “To achieve those grades you will have worked very hard while using the knowledge of expert teachers, mentors and educational assistants. “Here and there you have made sacrifices that seemed a little unfair at the time. The hard work that we all here at school have observed is truly inspiring. You also, with help, love and support of your family will have balanced your life with pursuits and family life. This is the best way to live your life.

Former Alberta Premier Ed Stelmach

“Today you get to celebrate the results of all your efforts. You really deserve to have your moment. I hope you all have fun in your celebrations but please stay safe. “The future will be your own making which is a great thing given the kind of people you are and the lessons you have learned. I really do encourage you to set goals you are passionate

about, work hard, get feedback from those you respect, maintain your own personal integrity and help other people. “I urge you to keep your family close to you. They are the ones who have been with you all the way and they will be there no matter what happens in the future. There is no substitute for the love of your family.”

Band Aid means new instruments for two EIPS schools SUBMITTED ARTICLE Mundare School and Vegreville Composite High are two of only eight Alberta schools receiving grant funds via the national program. This program provides almost $800,000 in new instruments for schools across Canada. “Music education in schools is very important,” says Liane Schultz, Mundare School principal. “This is a great opportunity for children in our school to both receive instruments and to express their creativity together.” Mundare School received $10,000 and Vegreville Composite High, $5,000 in grants for instruments that help to make music more accessible to students in these schools. In Mundare, the school has purchased a class set

of Orff xylophones and metallophones, about 50 small percussion instruments for elementary music, and new flutes, trumpets and trombones for band. At the school in Vegreville, the band now has a new piccolo, tuba and alto saxophone. Maureen Yule is the music and band teacher for both schools and is excited at the opportunity new instruments will provide. “Receiving this grant is amazing.” says Yule. “There is a lot of value in educating through music. I look forward to using the new instruments in our classes and really celebrate the many skills of our students.” The grants allowed the schools to upgrade some of the old inventory that is wearing out. “We have a very strong band program at the

school,” says Barclay Spady, principal at Vegreville Composite High. “New instruments

will help us enhance our learning environment and this opportunity will help reinforce student’s

interest in music.” The instruments are already purchased and being used at each

school. And students are excited at the opportunity to learn music through instrument performance.

According to club spokesman Alf Zips, there were a total of 306 registered vehicles, an estimated total of 360 vehicles, great entertainment, 12-15 vendors and several concessions operating throughout the day for the enthusiastic and hungry crowd that was scattered throughout the community.

Your kind and gentle ways were very appreciated. We would also like to thank all the people who brought food to the house, for all the flowers given, and all the donations given to different charities of your choices. Your kindness will not be forgotten. To Earl and Rose Mae Kjelland, thank you for your kindness and caring during such a difficult time. You are wonderful people, and we thank you for making this a little easier on us all. Thank you to Father Luan Vu for the wonderful service, Ruth Maker for the music, and Bob Wesley for singing. Thank you to my brother Bob Williams for singing at the gravesite. That meant the world to all of us. Thank you to Donna Brook for the delicious lunch that was held after the service. To all of you who attended the service, and leant your shoulders for hugs, and told your stories of Stan and what a wonderful man he was, we all truly appreciate it, more than you know.

Bruderheim outhouse races ready to roll July 1 Michelle Pinon Editor

It was a crazy idea. But no matter how crazy it seemed, Doug Maschmeyer and Virginia Differenz convinced Bruderheim Mayor Karl Hauch and the rest of town council to go along with the idea of hosting outhouse races on Queen Street during Canada Day activities on Saturday, July 1st. The Bruderheim couple were travelling last summer in the Yukon when they saw a poster advertising The Great Klondike Outhouse Race, and thought it would be a lot of fun to try the idea out in Bruderheim. “We already have between six and eight registrants,” stated Differenz. Town council has also put out the challenge to other municipal-

ities in the area to participate. In fact, anyone who wants to sign up can. A full listing of the rules and regulations are available, and everyone is encouraged to join in the fun. “Every team that participates will receive a prize,” added Maschmeyer, with a friendly smile. It will be a great addition to the line up of activities for Canada Day, and the outhouse races will be held after the parade is over Saturday morning. Canada Day festivities will kick off July 1 with a pancake breakfast, sponsored by the Bruderheim Fire Department at the community hall from 8 10 a.m. The Parade is scheduled to start at 11 a.m. and will go from Walker School down Queen Street to the Victoria Hotel. After the parade you can enjoy a piece of strawberry

shortcake in the community hall or head over to the gazebo area for various family based activities. There will be a clown and caricature artists available from 12 Noon to 4 p.m. The Bruderheim Lioness Club will operate the concession during those hours, and there will be a fire brigade activity as well as a Chili Cook off in the afternoon as well. Ten Cent Lift is the featured band during the evening concert that will go from 7 -11 p.m. Proceeds of the concert will go towards the skate park project. Of course, no Canada Day would be complete without fireworks that can be viewed from the agricultural grounds. For more information on any of the Canada Day activities please contact the Town of Bruderheim.

Registration deadline is fast approaching, as the outhouse races will be featured right after the Canada Day Parade on July 1. Many of the activities will be hosted by the recreation and culture board of which, volunteer Raven Lohse, (far left), is a part of. Standing behind her is Mayor Hauch, and standing beside her is Coun. Pat Lee.

Lamont County road construction crews have been working on an access road just north of Highway 15 to the Heartland water reservoir. The access road will allow truck traffic to turn on and off Range Road 202 instead of Highway 15 which is extremely congested with high volumes of traffic daily. Depending on the weather, crews are hoping to have the road completed by the end of this week.

Around 15 volunteers with the Lamont Fish & Game Association held a tree planting day on Saturday, May 27 at the Lamont Trout Pond. The group planted 250 trees around the pond. Spruce, pine, poplar and dogwood trees were planted, and members plan to continue the conservation initiative in the years to come.
