Heat, wind, needed to salvage crops BY JOHN MATHER Lamont County farmers are still on edge as to whether crops will be salvageable for this season. “When we had that big dump of rain a couple of weeks ago, it was still a localized narrow band.” said Harry Brook, an agricultural specialist with Alberta Agriculture in Stettler. He added, in the band which spread a swath of rain across the province from Calgary to St. Paul some people got several inches of rain while others got very little. “It’s all over the map right now,” he explained. “The dry areas of the province that were dry two weeks ago, well they’re still dry. They might be a little better off having received about half an inch or so, but they’re going to need more.” He said he had been speaking with people near the Saskatchewan border and they have to salvage their crops because there’s not enough rain for them to finish. “They’re also short of feed because there’s no hay, especially in the dryland areas,” he said. “If you’re a cattle producer, to spend $200 a tonne for hay doesn’t make any economic sense.” He said Lamont County is in an area where there’s been lots of rain and it’s an area where there’s been lots of rain with gumbo soils containing lots of clay. “There’s water pooling in the fields north of Lamont, in the Star area. You’re getting drowned out fields,” he stated. “If we don’t get heat to dry it out you’re going to have that crop either totally die or be non productive.” He said you need heat combined with wind. “If you get a good breeze with some good heat it will dry out pretty quickly.” He said the crop predictions for the fall will range anywhere from excellent to dreadful across the province. “In Lamont you’ll see that variabili-
ty. Guys that had too much rain and a lot of crop sitting in standing water will be doing poorly, but those with crops on high land or on sandier soil may be smiling.” “But don’t forget we haven’t hit our season for hail yet.” “There’s a lot of ground to be covered before now and harvest,” he said. “The potential for disease is there.” He said farmer may have to add some fungicides to their spraying programs. He said in the north of Alberta some farmers are reporting higher levels of grasshoppers. Brook said hemp production shouldn’t be too badly affected by the rain if it’s in a well drained field. “Hemp doesn’t like wet feet,” he said. “The higher areas of the field could produce very well.” He admits heat is the first thing that farmers need right now. “If you took the moisture we’ve received and spread it across the entire amount of land under production in Alberta, we’d all be doing really well,” he said. “Unfortunately it’s uneven distribution. The storms seems to run through the central part of the province angling towards the northeast.”
Rains slow down County road improvements BY JOHN MATHER The heavy rains of recent weeks haven’t helped Lamont County open any roads, some still closed off from spring runoff. “There are issues out there,” said county roads foreman Gerald Thorowsky. “There are about six roads still closed from the spring and the water’s rising and not going away.” He said there were some washouts from storms on July 7. “Some areas don’t even have an inch of rain from yesterday and other areas had three inches.” He added crews were still driving the County looking for areas where there might be potential damage. Thorowsky said while there were no
new road closures from the recent storms. He said in some areas in the north of the County there was not so much rain, but he did report a quarter mile of road had eaten up the shoulder near Hilliard, but he hadn’t had other calls of road washouts. Where the rain hampers the County is in the installation of culverts which have been scheduled for replacement to help with drainage. “It slows us down quite a bit,” said Thorowsky. “There’s more water and you can’t put it in the culverts if there’s water in the base.” He said an additional drainage crew was helping his department keep up with the issues.

4 - The Lamont Leader (Lamont, Alberta), Wednesday, July 10, 2019
Opinion Odds are the perfect storm in Alberta should end soon Things are never so bad that they can’t get worse. That’s the state of Alberta’s fortune these days. With the well-known loss of hundreds of thousands of oil related jobs, and the inability to get a pipeline built to get our world-class oil supply to market, it’s easy to forget the woes of our renowned agricultural industry. According to a recent report by Statistics Canada, a combination of drought, weather and global trade barriers produced the perfect storm causing farm incomes to drop severely in 2018. As a unit, the reported net income of Alberta farmers dropped some 68 percent to $535 million. It was the greatest drop since 2006. The troubles were not unique to Alberta, as every province in Canada except New Brunswick experienced a drop in agricultural wages last year. Alberta’s massive drop contributed to a nation-wide decline of 45 percent, a full one-third caused by Alberta’s distress. Weather-wise Alberta had it all in 2018, according to the report; a wet spring followed by an extended hot and dry spell which withered crops in the field, and then an early dump of rain and snow in the fall. Some areas of Alberta received less than one-quarter of their annual summer rainfall. A September snowfall delayed harvest for weeks. Making matters worse, smoke from BC fires blanketed much of Alberta last summer and blocked direct sunlight needed for crops to mature. In many areas, in particular south and eastern Alberta, beef producers ran out of grass for their livestock and had to purchase feed to get them through the winter at a price well above premium. Correspondingly, farm operating expenses increased in Alberta and helped push up national averages by over 6.5 percent. Since then our relationship with China has dissolved in 2019, as that massive market has blocked canola shipments from Canada due to a political dispute with our federal government. China is our largest purchaser of canola. So far in 2019, Alberta agriculture was blessed with rain… but it just won’t seem to quit. Spraying has been nearly impossible and huge puddles lie on producers’ fields. But alas, this should be the final week for extended periods of rain and sunnier summer days are expected to be ahead, according to Alberta weather reports. Life is like a pendelum, and Alberta has had it very good for a long time. We concede that we were due some bad breaks. But now we’re quite ready for a return to good times. Kerry Anderson

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Volunteer feels mistreated - apology wanted What would you do if your abilities as a volunteer were being questioned after you had visited an establishment for years, bringing joy and laughter to those you served? How would you feel after spending a couple days a week there for years... then being made to feel that your time spent helping others was nothing? Inferior and untrained? If someone sidled up to you and asked "Have you ever had volunteer training?" by someone who was well aware of what you do there; how would you feel? And he continued with. "Well I'm going to be the new manager and I am going to start a volunteer training program. I think you need to come." That was the entire explanation, I was stunned, appalled and insulted and told him no repeatedly! I was truly taken aback and absolutely mortified to be questioned thus. I'd never heard of such a thing! And what brought this on even? In mid May I called his boss, the incoming new hospital manager. I attempted to tell him of my concerns over the way he had spoken to me, but he responded with "So take the course. Maybe you'll make a friend. Maybe you'll learn something" But never did he, nor could he explain to me; what volunteer training was because he didn't know, because it doesn't exist! A n d now they both owe me an apology for the way I have been spoken to and treated. He called me Beaverly on the phone... I let it pass. I accidentally pronounced his name wrong and he snapped. Talk about double standards. This is NOT the way you treat people. It is not the way I treat
people and not the way I expected to be treated! I was appalled by all of this and decided I was no longer going to the lodge. They don't deserve me. I'll find somewhere else to spread joy. At church supper that Friday a lady from hospital Auxiliary approached me and said they would be honoured if I would join them. I explained to her what I was going through right then and that my comfort level had completely diminished over this insult. She was also furious for the way I was treated and confused also, never having heard of volunteer training. And after some discussion she said leave it with me. She was not impressed. But this upset festered in me and I was encouraged by someone close to the situation to write to their superiors as I feel apologies are forthcoming for the way I was spoken to ana made to feel. So I wrote a letter to the lodge manager and to the big boss. At the suggestion of another once poorly treated volunteer I also sent the letter to County Housing board members including our Mayor. The Auxiliary ladies went to bat for me but when they went to meet someone and talk about it they were told it had been dealt with, and they were dismissed. That was a lie! I had heard from nobody. Private caller and unknown caller never left messages. Eventually the big boss called and after we spoke he suggested I come in front of four of them to hash this out, 4 to 1, not intimidating even a little, right? Indeed there is no hashing needed and I told him so. I am seeking apologies.
I had a death in the family to deal with and he agreed he would call me back in a week so we could work this out. He never called. I haven't heard from anyone since this happened in mid May. Nobody at the lodge cares about how you treat volunteers, nobody on the County Board cares how you treat volunteers, the Mayor does not care how volunteers are treated here in our good hospital town. Nobody cares except the seniors I spent my time with, the seniors who enjoyed music with me, the ones I played cards with or did crafts with or helped on a bus trip. Any idea how many volunteers like me help out here in our little hospital town? Ask around. There was one for sure.. WAS, as I've not gone back. And I will not. Until I have the apologies I so deserve for being treated like I don't matter. I had the time and the inclination, I loved what I did... and so did those I served. I'm told I'm missed, but why would I want to go back and be treated so poorly? A simple I'm sorry, a little explanation maybe, but I got nothing but silence. It fixed nothing! My heart is bruised and my time as a volunteer of anything is over! The price you pay as a giver is just too high when you are so obviously unappreciated by the people who run the show. I'm disgusted that nobody cares, saddened that nobody cares. I highly recommend to anyone considering volunteering here to put your face back in your phone and just forget about it. You will NOT be appreciated! Sadly and sincerely, Bev Ray

Bruderheim School Garden comes to life as students head off for the summer Maureen Sullivan A beautiful garden takes a lot of work, and in this case a lot of people, as the Bruderheim School Tiger Garden unveiled a plaque on June 27. The students and community members worked hard to get the garden complete before the end of the year. The garden which was planted by the grade 4/5 class with some help from Sherry Cote, Director of Planning and Legislative Services for the Town of Bruderheim, not only
has flowers for immediate impact, but also has some carrots and radishes, and even some pumpkins that the kids can pick in the fall. The kids said they enjoyed the digging, planting and playing in the mud to get the garden ready. "We have been talking about this for a lot of years and now we have it," said Principal Wells. "The children will take care of the garden and have pride of ownership." Sue Guthrie and Graham Pronishen of Cenovus Energy, which
donated some funding, were there to see the garden unveiled. “We provided the wood for the planters and the Lamont High students built them,” said Tracey Thomas of the Fort Saskatchewan Home Hardware. Other businesses also helped out. On hand from the town were CAO, Patty Podoborozny, and Deputy Mayor Pat Lee. The school’s Parent Council have volunteered to water and take care of the garden through the summer holidays.

JOHN MATHER The Chipman 4-H Beef and Multi Club has received a $1,300 community grant from MEGlobal in Fort Saskatchewan. “One of our leaders brought it to our attention,” said club reporter Hayden Childs. “We voted to apply for the grant and we received it.” “We’re going to spend the money on safety and learning equipment for the members,” she added, saying the club had grown considerably over the past couple of years. “In a couple of years we’ve gone from nine members to 22 members.” She attributed the growth to running a campaign for members and having a couple of nearby 4-H clubs close down. The 4-H club accepts members from ages six to eight as Cleavers, and
then regular members from nine to 19. Childs said the club has several different areas of interest including a horse project, lamb project, beef project and an outdoor living project. General leader Sharisse Rasmussen said the club members come from across Lamont County and towards Tofield. The club meets at Walker School in Bruderheim. She said the club will receive the grant during a presentation in August. The new safety equipment for the club will be purchased in the fall. Rasmussen went on to explain the club hadn’t applied for grants in the past, but had to start looking for alternative sources of funding as the club membership grew. “We applied for several grants but the MEGlobal was the only one we received and
we’re very grateful to them,” she said. The club will continue to apply for community grants in the future. Rasmussen added that some of the club’s growth can be attributed to a generation of parents who went to 4-H and now have children who are at an age to join the club. “We’ve been through the program and know the value of it,” she said. “And I think it’s a good educational program for our children.” The 2019 MEGlobal Canada Community Contributions program allocated $25,000 for projects ranging from safety to sports to homemade quilts. All the beneficiaries of the grants had activities that align with the company’s focus on sustainability. The Chipman 4-H Club was the only club to receive funding outside of Fort Saskatchewan.

FROM WHERE I SIT: Feeling better already
BY HAZEL ANAKA When your sciatica flares up, and your back aches, and your arms and hands throb, one wonders when the work ends. Or, if it ever ends. I know that a person should be grateful for the strength, stamina, and good health to undertake the jobs at hand. I suspect the people who are too old or sick to work like they used to, wish for the days of vigor and staying power. Maybe, living on a farm with all the space inherent in that magnifies the scope and chal-
lenge. Maybe, having multiple interests exacerbates the issue. Maybe, having that old baby boomer work ethic is inescapable. Maybe, it’s born and bred into some of us. Lord knows, we certainly didn’t grow up on a beach or camping every weekend or lounging in the backyard. So, every spring, we pray for the snow to melt quickly. Why? So, we can head for the hills. Hell, no. So, the work can begin anew. This year, we’re taking it slow as the ground settles around the new foundations. I’m also determined to act with more long-range planning than I did with some of my more impetuous decisions thirty years ago. That takes a sober reckoning of exactly how hard we’re able and willing to work as we head into the sunset of our lives. But, there remain the basics of weed control and grass cutting,
which are Herculean tasks with rain twice a day this summer. Compounding the challenge of smart, accessible organization is the issue of Babas and Borshch. Over the past six plus years, we’ve accumulated a number of supplies, props, ephemera. And while much of what we use is actually mine, there is the need to separate and protect festival assets. Plus make it easy to load and unload the utility trailer when setup/teardown begin. Plus, find things when I need them throughout the year! We just spent a gutbusting few hours restoring some order to the garage and finally bringing in the umpteen cases of vinyl laminate that we’ve been storing for a couple of years. In the next few days, an installer will lay it down in the east basement wing. That will be a welcome relief but will trig-
ger more work for me. You can have a lot of space but still live in chaos if you don’t analyze your behaviour and lay out sensible storage solutions for work and play. I await the day I have pretty and productive zones for the activities that occupy me. Incredibly, they range from jewelry making to furniture refinishing, complete with all the resources, supplies, tools, and projects you might imagine. Is it any wonder, I feel like there aren’t enough hours in a day? Or days in a lifetime? Maybe, this aching body and feeling of overwhelm is just another life lesson. By turning the thought on its head, I skip the misery. I’m
blessed to embrace the activity, the challenge, the sore muscles because I still have the time,
health, opportunity, and desire to be and do more. I feel better already, from where I sit.

Top wages higher in Industrial Heartland than other parts of province
Job prospects looking good for area according to new survey MAUREEN SULLIVAN A new study shows the Alberta industrial Heartland has the highest wages across the province in the top occupations. The Industrial Heartland Market Labour Study was commissioned by the Alberta Industrial Heartland Association to show trends in employment, now and in the future. Taking a snapshot of the Heartland, it gathered information from employers in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland (which includes Lamont County), Strathcona Industrial Area, and northeast Edmonton. Based on the survey, it is estimated that of the almost 12,000 filled jobs, half are in the chemical manufacturing industry, with the rest in rail trans-
portation, petroleum and coal product manufacturing, pipeline transportation, and primary metal manufacturing. The fastest growing occupations in the area include power engineers and power systems operators, civil engineers and supervisors in petroleum, gas and chemical processing and utilities. The survey also showed that wages across the top occupations in the region were significantly higher in the Heartland than in Edmonton or the province as a whole. Lamont County Reeve, David Diduck, has expressed his satisfaction with the report stating, “I applaud the work put by the Regional Labour Profile Committee and Consultants (Applications Management
Consulting Ltd.) on this regional project. The information that has been collected from industry and other agencies over the last year is key to making plans for development in the AIHA region. “ While the most new jobs between now and 2023, are expected for construction millwrights and industrial mechanics, employers are actively recruiting for petroleum, gas and chemical process operators, power engineers and power system operators, mechanical engineers, and industrial instrument technicians and mechanics. Employers in the study expect in the next five years to have about 100 shutdowns or turnarounds. The number of workers needed is
expected to be 7,376 according to the report. These occupations include construction millwrights and industrial mechanics; carpenters; steamfitters, pipefitters and sprinkler system installers; boilermakers; construction trade helpers and labourers; contractors and supervisors, other construction trades, installers, repairers and servicers; industrial electricians; welders and related machine
operators; industrial instrument technicians and mechanics; and insulators. There are 10 employers currently completing or planning an expansion of their operations. Of those employers they expect to hire 2,500 workers in the manufacturing field; and 378 workers in the mining, quarrying, and oil and gas extraction field. According to employers who participated in the survey, the top three
vacant positions in the study area are railway yard and locomotive engineers; mechanical engineers and civil engineers. The profile is a collaborative effort of Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association, Strathcona County, Sturgeon County, Lamont County, the City of Fort Saskatchewan, the City of Edmonton, and the Government of Alberta.

Street bench mystery cleared up
BY JOHN MATHER So what is the proper way for a park bench on a main street to face? That question was raised by Bruderheim councillor Len Falardeau at the June 17 council meeting. “The benches on main street are backwards,” he said. “I’ve sat on them and asked myself, ‘What are you looking at?’ “You can’t see the traffic if it’s going to hit you, you couldn’t get out of the way,” he said. “I’ve never seen benches put on this way … they usually face the action on the street.” While he admitted it was probably for safety he felt it wasn’t safe if you couldn’t see the traffic. He asked if the benches could be turned around to face the traffic. A trip around the County showed that in Mundare the benches also face the storefronts rather than traffic. Bruderheim director of planning and legislative services, Sherry Cote said the benches had been installed with their backs facing the street for safety. “They are very close to the curb,” she explained. “And if a small child was to slip off the bench and it was facing the street they would fall in to the traffic.” She added if the benches were on the building side of the sidewalk they would probably face the traffic because there would be ample space between the bench and roadway. In Mundare, Mayor Mike Saric echoed Cote’s comments. “I remember when we
put those in,” he said. “Ours are very close to the street and if you were facing the street your feet would dangle over the curb.” He added he didn’t want people having their feet kicking the flower displays behind the benches. “If they were tucked up against the buildings then they would face the street, but on the edge of the curb we wanted them to face the storefronts.” Going to the official source, Chris Tucker, sales manager of Classic Benches in Mississauga, Ont., said there is no right or wrong way to install their benches. Classic sold the benches used on Bruderheim’s Queen St. “There’s the way we recommend and the way others want to put them in’” he said. “The situation in Bruderheim is how we recommend they be installed.” He gave several reason for their recommendation. “The reason we install them facing the storefront is mainly for the protection of children,” he said. “If the bench is facing the storefront and the children dart off the bench they are far safer than if it was facing traffic.” He added kids fidget quite a bit and this was a major question they had when it came to installing benches. “There is no right or wrong answer,” he emphasized. “It’s a matter of preference.” Another reason he said to have them facing storefront was if the bench had been spon-

sored by a business, through something similar to a business revitalization zone, then a bench facing the storefront offered free advertising. “People sitting on the bench can view titles in a bookstore or see the latest fashions in a dress shop,” he said. “In addition, if someone is waiting for someone to come out of the store they can see them.” His third reason for
recommending benches face the store was cleanliness. “If the street is sloppy in the spring and vehicles come by and splashes slush up from the road, it will spray the back of the bench, and not cover the front sitting area.” “I’ve been selling benches for 15 years,” he said. “My preference is to have them facing inward.”
A sidewalk bench along Bruderheim’s Queen St. facing inward away from traffic. Councillor Len Falardeau wondered if this was the safest way for them to be facing.

Chipman portable air monitoring station operational BY JOHN MATHER A portable air monitoring station operated by the Fort Air Partnership is now operational in Chipman. The Partnership issued a press release last week stating the air monitoring unit was located in a Batiuk Water Commission compound about half a kilometre north of the village on Range Road 185. Previously located in Bon Accord, the Chipman location was selected because of sev-
eral key factors including being in a populated area currently underserved by continuous air monitoring. “Having a portable continuous air monitoring station is a very valuable resource,” said Nadine Blaney, executive director of the Fort Air Partnership. “It gives us the flexibility to monitor air quality in areas previously underserved, as well as respond to emerging issues.” In addition to weather information, the station
is collecting and reporting data on 10 substances: sulphur dioxide, hydrogen sulphide, nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide, oxides of nitrogen, ozone, total hydrocarbons, non-methane hydrocarbons, methane and particulate matter. This data enables the calculation of an air quality index for the local area. The portable station will remain at its current location for at least six months. “The Village of

Chipman and the Water Commission were very helpful in securing the property. We thank them for providing the site to us at no charge,” said Blaney. The Fort Air Partnership has 10 continuous air monitoring stations in and around Alberta’s Industrial Heartland. The AQHI and near real time data for every substance at every station is available at fortair.org.

Vechicle thief sought by RCMP MAUREEN SULLIVAN The Vegreville RCMP detachment is seeking help with an investigation of theft of vehicle and arson. On June 18, at approximately 1:45 p.m., a male walked into the property of G&R Sand and Gravel, looked through several vehicle windows before stealing a 2002 Ford Windstar which belonged to an employee. The same male had been seen hitchhiking on highway 16 east of Vegreville earlier that morning, though he entered the property from the West. He is described as being Caucasian with dark thinning hair, medium build, wearing a light blue t-shirt and light coloured plaid / check patterned shorts. Approximately one hour later, the stolen minivan was located on fire on highway 16 in Lamont County, and a male fitting the description of the thief was seen fleeing the area. If you have any information contact the Vegreville RCMP Detachment at 780-6312750.
Vegreville RCMP are looking for this suspect in relation to a robbery on June 18 in which a vehicle was stolen and lit on fire in Lamont County.
