STARS touches down near Bruderheim Accident at powerline construction site dispatches emergency services


Bruderheim firefighter Amber Tanner directs STARS Air Ambulance during an emergency landing at a powerline construction site north of the town site.

911 call results in air ambulance rescue Michelle Pinon Editor

Friday. 8:40 a.m. District 70. Range Road 204. That’s the time Amber Tanner and Don Dreichel of the Bruderheim Fire Department responded to a 911 call. “It came in as a fell call so we went to the call,” said Tanner. “We were

almost on site and they informed us that STARS was 14 minutes away.” The terrain was bumpy with ruts and her heart started racing faster when she was given the opportunity to assist with the landing of the helicopter. With the assistance of Randy Siemens, county fire chief and emergency services co-ordinator, she set up a landing spot.

“He (Siemens) walked me through everything that I had to do. I was very nervous before he got there; once I saw the helicopter I felt a lot more calm. I talked to the pilot and I assisted with the landing.” Medical staff attended to the patient, and took off a short time later. Around 11 a.m. Tanner and Dreichel left the scene.

An injured ATCO employee was airlifted from a work site north of Bruderheim Friday morning.

Haying in the 30’s; godsend for local couple Alberta based charitable organization assists cancer patients and their families Michelle Pinon Editor

they are comforted by the fact they are not alone on this journey. Every week they give Pastor Ron Wurtz an update, and are also comforted and uplifted by the prayers of him and parishioners at the Lamont Alliance Church. “There’s a God that

hears and answers prayers...There’s a peace that comes over you, and you know you are not walking by yourself.” So with the grace of God, and the help of family, friends and even strangers; the Ostashek’s are in good hands.

Followed by Charity Auction age, it’s unheard of,” said Taras, who is undergoing experimental chemotherapy treatment for prostate cancer. With the financial assistance of anonymous individuals through the Haying in the ‘30’s charitable organization; their biweekly trips to the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton have become a lot less stressful in recent months. Having funds for parking and gas expenses have helped lighten the burden they face, and that’s why they felt it was important to acknowledge the donors and the support group with a recent advertisement in the Lamont Leader. Ironically, the Ostashek’s had never heard of Haying in the ‘30’s until they met up with John Kapicki, a friend and local representative for the organization which is based out of Mallaig, AB. For the past eight years, the St. Michael and District Agricultural Society has been hosting a fundraiser for the Haying in the 30’s organization. The 9th annual edition is slated for

Waste disposal bylaw, fees and fines discussed by Lamont County council Michelle Pinon Editor

Rubbish. Was a source of discussion during Lamont County Council’s March 11 meeting. Steve Crosby, the county’s peace officer, introduced a waste disposal bylaw. While council members passed the bylaw, the direction of the discussion was diverted to proposed changes for disposal of construction and demolition materials at the St. Michael Regional Landfill. Starting April 1, 2014, the St. Michael Regional Solid Waste Commission will begin charging residents and non-residents fees for disposal of construction and demolition materials. The rates will be $80 a metric tonne for non-residents and $40 a metric tonne for residents. “With these new regulations, everyone is up in arms,” stated Div. 3 Councillor Roy Bryks, who represents the area in which the landfill is located as well as serves as the representative for Lamont County on the regional landfill commission. “It would have been nice to have consultation before the commission made the decision,” stated Reeve Wayne Woldanski. “I don’t know where they (landfill commission) is going

with all this?” questioned Woldanski aloud. Woldanski pointed out that the county pays close to 60 per cent of the requisition, and expressed his concerns about the decision, saying he thought the move would cause more people to dump their garbage in the ditches rather than pay an additional fee. Crosby agreed. “I expect there will be lots of garbage in ditches after that,” stated Crosby. Div. 5 Coun. Robert Malicia said they would also see more smoke in the air because farmers would rather burn the materials at home than haul it to the landfill and then pay an additional fee. Malica also asked aloud: “How can they (landfill commission) do that without even talking to us?” Woldanski added, “I don’t know.” Malica urged council to meet with the commission. “A number of us (councillors) have had calls at home about these fees, and we’ve been blindsided by this,” stated Woldanski. “This is absurd,” said Bryks, who asked how much the county pays for waste disposal? The figure of $279,000 was bounced around, but Malica thought the figure was closer to $271,000. Woldanski clarified the actual amount paid by

the county on last year’s requisition was $278,153.78 which equals 58.78 per cent of the total amount of the requistion. Coun. Roy Anaka made the motion to direct administration to set up a meeting with the St. Michael Regional Landfill Commission as soon as possible. The motion was carried unanimously. In a subsequent interview, Reeve Woldanski stated that, “Council was made aware of the change in rates through some phone calls from residents. There was no official correspondence to my knowledge from the commission regarding the change in rate structure. He went on to say, “With such a significant change, we had hoped that there would have been an opportunity for some prior consultation on the matter. We don't even know the reason behind the rate structure change...for revenue generation, recycling ? We feel that this may increase the littering situation in the County. Our feeling is that the rural residents generate more than just household garbage and that the previous rate structure for only charging non-residents and commercial haulers should be re-instated.” “We do have a member on the Commission Board, but he is newly

elected and was not aware of this change in rates.Yes, I was aware of the change, (not changes) of the motion to place a levy of $40.00 for construction and demolition refuse. However, it was not made clear to me and some other members of the board, that the cost would be borne by country ratepayers,” pointed

out Woldanski. “County councilors were aware of the change. They all were informed, if not by ratepayer calls, then by myself,” said coun. Bryks.“We (county Council) hashed this issue out at a meeting on March 7th. “Concerns, yes! We pay a requisition of $328,

000 to the landfill of the current year. To be subjected by another cost of $40 per tonne on the garbage we haul in is perhaps becoming ludicrous,” added Bryks. “Perhaps a special meeting will clear up this issue before April 1,” noted Bryks.


Garbage fees and disposal were both discussed during the March 11 county council meeting. Peace officer Steve Crosby introduced a waste disposal bylaw that will be revisited at a later date. For more information on the proposed bylawgo to Page 5.

Opinion Act now! As they did a year ago, Albertans expect the Redford government to have a strong focus on tangible solutions to opening new markets for Alberta’s energy resources. This commitment was reinforced in the recent budget, and is a key plank in the Building Alberta Plan. To date, government efforts as well as public attention have revolved mainly around two projects: Keystone XL and Northern Gateway pipelines. In resource-rich Alberta, however, shipping our raw resources by pipeline is not the only way to generate value. The government can, and should, encourage processing more of our raw energy resources into higher value products in the province. Increased valueadded energy production demonstrates we are also a province and a nation of advanced innovation, engineering and manufacturing. Alberta already has a well-established petrochemical industry. Its Industrial Heartland north east of Edmonton is actually the largest hydrocarbon-processing centre in the country. East of Red Deer, Joffre is home to one of the world’s largest ethane-based factories in the world. This industry is vital to the provincial economy, securing higher value for our energy resources. Today we encourage the provincial government to follow in the footsteps of the party’s founder and prioritize the growth of our value-added energy production. With proactive government policy and expanded infrastructure, we can transform Alberta into a global leader in innovation, advanced engineering and manufacturing as well as environmental stewardship. Our province has tremendous potential. The provincial government estimates reserves of 3,400 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, 58 billion barrels of natural gas liquids, and 423 billion barrels of oil are contained in the barely explored Duvernay, a vast shale formation in central and northwest Alberta. These reserves could easily double the feedstock supply for the petrochemical industry based in the Fort Saskatchewan and Red Deer areas. A study commissioned by Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association in 2013 found that adding value to Alberta’s energy resources could increase the province’s gross domestic product (GDP) by $6 billion a year, add $1.8 billion a year in salaries, and increase provincial revenue by $600 million a year. While we still want and need to ship our energy resources internationally, we can also create in-demand products for local, regional, and national markets that can be shipped by a variety of transportation methods. Processing more of our energy resources at home also allows Alberta to reduce its environmental footprint and showcase its environmental standards as a secure supplier of clean energy products. As the Government of Alberta contemplates a review of policies in support of more hydrocarbon processing, international companies are poised to invest billions of dollars. Other jurisdictions are competing for this investment, and the window of opportunity is closing. A viable solution for our energy is as close as home. The time to act is now.

From Where I Sit: Pretty Sweet Deal

By Hazel Anaka

In late November I spent a week at our Canmore timeshare: a functional, yet cozy location for a working retreat. After a few hours or days of work I feel entitled to goof off. That diversion may entail shopping or eating out. As I visited new and old haunts in town I thought about my role as a returning visitor. Tourists have it made. We can dip in and out

without any real investment in the community or area other than what we spend on food, fuel, and personal consumables. Last year I saw a civic building under construction. As an outsider I missed the municipal government debates about the expenditure and the taxpayer weighins on pros and cons. I missed the actual inconvenience of construction, the disruption to service, the traffic snarls. A year later I get to see the magnificent Elevation Place: art gallery, library, bistro, childcare centre, rock climbing wall and more. I can see, use, and enjoy—often without cost—and then go on my merry way. When I asked the gallery attendant about when the building opened and commented on its beauty, he seemed unsure of either. He, of advancing years, said the

building was very big and cost a lot. I said I guess you’re worried about taxes. He said he lived elsewhere. So you’re off the hook I said. Yep, I’m off the hook. Would his opinion about the investment be different if he was a library patron, a rock climber or had children in need of care? Probably. As I continued my rounds in town it was sad to see some businesses had closed. I suspect that in true Alberta entrepreneurial spirit the shuttered spaces won’t remain so for long. Some wide-eyed risk taker with a hope and a prayer (and the help of a bank) will open the next hot new shop. As consumers we vote with our wallets. We choose whom to support with our dollars and to what extent. I always shop at Café Books when I’m in Canmore. They’re an independent and

damn proud of it. Are their prices good? No, not Costco or thrift store good. But the selection of less mainstream titles and the ambience make you want to linger. I always leave with a bag of goodies and a skinnier wallet. Another favourite, Second Storey Books, a used bookstore housed in a below grade space on Main Street was closed because of the summer flood damage. By this fall I’ll know if they recovered and regrouped. I hope so. Each year I catch the Christmas Artisan’s Market at the high school and delight in the talents of others. I practice my dining alone strategy at Indochine, a Vietnamese fusion restaurant with the freshest, yummiest food. I drive to Banff National Park. Luckily this whole visitor thing is reciprocal. I visit your town you visit

mine. I drop some moola there you bring some here. Our respective taxes build our own infrastructure but we

share it with others. Pretty sweet deal from where I sit.

County council passes waste disposal bylaw Stiffer fines for litter bugs Submitted by Lamont County

Since starting work in Lamont County, Steve Crosby, Lamont County Peace Officer, has found that garbage being dumped on the side of the road is a reoccurring issue. “I have personally dealt with several garbage dump complainants and have discovered garbage on my own and picked it up three or four times in the past few months,” he stated during the March 11 council meeting. Over the past few years, Lamont County Public Works has received an average of 40 calls per year regarding garbage being dumped in the ditches. While 40 incidents have been reported, it is rea-

sonable to assume that at least that much, if not more, has been found and removed by county employees and residents on their own. There can be danger associated with garbage being dumped into ditches. Last year a Lamont County employee was mowing the ditches and actually punctured a discarded propane tank. In another instance a freezer was dumped in a ditch with the lid still on it; the potential for a child to lock themselves in that freezer could have had serious repercussions. There has also been garbage dumped in the middle of the road – a serious hazard to a resident coming upon it at night. Unfortunately, the current Provincial fine for

littering of $110 is not enough of a deterrent to stop people from dumping garbage in the ditches. Therefore, at the March 11 Council meeting, Lamont County Council passed a Disposal of Waste Bylaw (Bylaw 741.14). This bylaw has a fine of $500 for the first offence, and double the fine for each subsequent offence, not to exceed $10,000. It is important that county residents do their part in keeping our County roads and ditches clean by reporting any unlawful dumping they witness to the county peace officer. Much of the dumping that occurs is done by out-of county residents, and the problem will only stop if they are caught and charged.

Elk Island National Park transfers 73 bison to Montana Michelle Pinon Editor

A total of 73 plains bison from Elk Island National Park (EINP) were loaded up last Thursday and transported to to the United States without a hitch, according to park superintendent Stephen Flemming. “They were in really good shape,” stated Flemming, who was on hand to assist with the transfer to the American Prairie Reserve in Montana. “For Parks Canada, we are really excited to be working with them,” said Flemming. “We appreciate their goal,

which aligns with ours.” This is the third time EINP has shipped plains bison to the reserve. Flemming said the American Prairie Reserve is unique in that it is all privately owned and funded initiative. The organization’s goal is to create a pure herd of 10,000 plains bison by 2050. Currently, the herd sits around 250, noted Flemming, who is more than happy with the group’s decision to get all of the bison from EINP, which has the only genetically pure plains bison herd in the world. Since 1906, Parks Canada has provided bison from EINP to conservation

projects in several national parks and conservation areas in western Canada and in the United States. Vegreville-Wainwright MP Leon Benoit was present for the official ceremony, which was held three days earlier in the park. At that time, Benoit stated, “Our government continues to take significant steps to protect Canada’s wildlife. Bison nearly vanished from North America, but they exist in Canada today because of investment from the Canadian Government and more than a century of work by Parks Canada. I am proud of the work our govern-

ment and Parks Canada have undertaken and look forward to continuing to bring this incredible story to Canadians. In 1906, the last herd of wild plains bison on the Montana plains was purchased by Canada. Their descendants live on EINP, and have been the source ever since of nearly all plains bison herds in Canada.” Returning the plains bison to the Montana plains is definitely a homecoming and a significant contribution that will help ensure the continued survival of this iconic animal.


A total of 73 plains bison were loaded up and shipped to the United States as part of a conservation project. The weather conditions were excellent for the move, and officials couldn’t have been happier.

County plans fire services meeting Michelle Pinon Editor

Following a 30 minute discussion, a motion directing administration to develop a consultation meeting with all municipal councils, CAO’s and fire chiefs and officers regarding the future of fire agreements. Even though the fire agreements do not expire until 2015, several fire departments have expressed interest in having the county assume management of those departments. But rather than inviting only three fire departments and municipalities, council decided to include all of the municipalities and fire departments in the discussion so they would all be on the same page and receive first hand information at the same time. Randy Siemens, regional fire chief and emergency services coordinator for Lamont County, said the meeting is a very good first step.� Siemens is also consulting with the local fire departments regarding standard operating procedures and guidelines, which he said is progressing well.

Mundare School fosters public speaking skills PHOTO SUBMITTED BY MUNDARE SCHOOL

Mundare School recently hosted its 5th annual Speak Your Mind Competition on March 6. Organizer Sian Vadnais said all of the speakers were amazing and showed great courage and creativity in writing their original speeches, presenting them to their classmates as well as the entire school, juding panel and enthusiastic guests. The gold medalists in Grades 4, 5, and 6 will continue on to represent Mundare at the Elk Island/ATB Young Speakers Invitational in April where they will compete against speakers from 23 other schools. Vadnais would love to see the competition expanded to junior and senior high students as public speaking is an invaluable lifelong skill to be encouraged, honoured and practiced. Gold, silver and bronze medalists were awarded to students: Emerson Jarvis, Dylan Batog, Tatianna Pichota, Jessica Clough, Haylee McNiven, Cody Sharun, Nolia Jarvis, Zoe Rogers, Alexandra Morse, Dylan Vadnais, Hannah Cressman, Mackenzie Jones, Brianna Patrie, Chelsea Sharun and Annie Antoniuk.

Lamont High School’s Art Club members from left to right: Arlie Riendeau, Brooke Benson, Jessica Thornton, Benjamin Marshall, Braeden Ridland, Aydan Connolly, Jurni Lohse-Ranville, Gabrielle Jensen and Andrea Gavinchuk.

Hidden talents emerge during art club Michelle Pinon Editor

Getting students to stay after school is usually a chore, but for teacher Andrea Gavinchuk it is a real pleasure. Since September between three and twelve junior high students have been staying late in her classroom at Lamont High School every Monday afternoon to participate in Art Club. With the assistance of assistant Arlie Riendeau, they have been assisting students in the various mediums including: doodle art, 3D wood art, decorating picture frames, texture painting, water colours, oil pastels, acrylics, sketching and collages. Gavinchuk said she decided to start Art Club because not all the junior

high students were able to get the option of art class, and wanted to give them an opportunity to learn new techniques, experiment with different mediums and hone their talents and skills. The students work on their own projects while listening to upbeat and positive music. Jessica Thornton was busy filling in eyelashes with her charcoal oil pastel on her paper. Thornton says she has always wanted to learn to draw since she saw her brother drawing. While he did teach her many things, Thornton says she has also learned a lot from U-Tube. For Ben Marshall, art was always a hobby; and he says he joined the Art Club because he wanted to improve. So far his favourite project was done in watercolours.

Art has been a hobby for Brooke Benson since she was little, and her mom noticed her talents and encouraged her to keep drawing. She either goes from memory or a picture when drawing, and was putting the finishing touches on her wolf portrait. Braeden Penner loves mixing shades and colors, and says his favourite project has been clay people, and even went as far as to make accessories for his creations. Even though Aydan Connolly said she had a bad case of artist’s block, she had most of a dynamic and colourful space nebula completed. “There’s lots of layering involved,” says Connolly who starts with a base colour, fills in with shading, and finishes with highlights.

Jurni Lohse-Ranville covers all her work sheets with doodles. A self professed cat lover, she mostly does digital art, but has developed a flair for pencil sketching and acrylic paints. Gabrielle Jensen could never have enough flowers, and displays her brilliant red, pink, and orange flowers during class recently. The students like to bounce ideas off each other and get advice from one another, as well as their teachers who also share their love of art, time and talents for their benefit.

The Lamont Leader (Lamont, Alberta), March 18, 2014 - 15

PEEK-A-BOO WITH DAD Cpl. Sagstuen plays peek-a-boo with his youngest daughter Danika before the flag raising ceremony at Andrew School. Earlier during the special assembly, he presented his middle daughter Nola with the miniature rubber duck he had been keeping for safekeeping back to her.


ECONOMIC ACTION PLAN 2014 works by controlling spending and putting Canada on the road to balanced budgets in 2015. Balancing the budget protects our economy and keeps it strong. Economic Action Plan 2014* includes proposed investments in things that matter to Canadians like: • Enhanced broadband internet service for rural and Northern Canadians MICHELLE PINON PHOTO

Andrew School assitant principal TJ Kennerd and principal Daniel Verhoeff raise the flags while Andrew Mayor Heather Tait and Deputy Mayor Mona Mitchell Frampton look on and Cpl. Corey Sagstuen salutes in honor of those who served their country during the Afghanistan war.

• A new Search and Rescue Volunteers Tax Credit • The New Horizons for14033CF1 Seniors Program • New measures to support apprentices in the trades • Improved and expanded snowmobile and recreational trails across the country • Measures to support the timely review of pipeline projects *Subject to Parliamentary approval


March 12 marked the end of Canada’s participation in Afghanistan. Students from Grades 7-12 at Lamont High School participated in a special assembly and flag raising ceremony that day.
