The hometown Andrew Wildcats got more than they bargained for when they faced the CFCW Critters in a fundraising hockey game for the proposed community playground. Jake Thorowsky took a pie to the face after scoring the Wildcats first goal. A crowd of around 250 people were on hand to cheer, and jeer, and raise $6,400 for the project. Breck Hrehorets skated away with $105 from the Shoot for the Pot contest, and Kalahya Sidor won the puck toss. Kim Levicki took home a fleece blanket and promotional goodies from CFCW.

Critters and Wildcats fundraising hockey game nets $6,400 for proposed community playground Michelle Pinon Editor

It was a laugh a minute for both players and fans of the Andrew Wildcats and CFCW Critters Thursday night. Smiles never left their faces, and both teams and supporters in the stands raised $6,400 for the proposed community playground. “We would like to thank all of the community members who attended this excellent event,” stated Daniel Verhoeff, Principal of

Andrew School. It’s so nice to see the whole community come out and show their support for such a great cause.” Verhoeff’s favourite part of the evening was when some of the elementary students joined the Wildcats on the bench in the third period to help battle the Critters. “It was so nice to see those keen smiles.” The students, nicknamed the Andrew Kittens, put in some great shifts and a couple of goals to make it a close game. There were a host of fun-filled activities,

with a 50/50 draw, raffle tables, puck toss, and a couple of shoot out contests. A special homemade Ukrainian meal capped off the evening. Kudos went out to organizers, volunteers and sponsors. Tammy Pickett, chair of the Andrew School Parent Council, was over the moon with the results of the fundraiser, and wanted to thank everyone for pitching in to make the event a great success. Parent council will be making a grant application in the near future, and hope to receive word

by late September. “If this grant is successful, we would like to start (building the playground) right after that,” said Verhoeff. “I am really hoping parent council’s grant application is accepted. I would love to have a new playground in the ground before the snow flies next year. We are very fortunate here, lots of our parents have access to equipment, and we won’t be short of helping hands to install new equipment when it comes time. We are crossing our fingers!”

It was all Andrew School Principal Daniel Verhoeff, in goal, could do to fight off the Critters offense.

Ray of sunshine as Renaye Wade returns to Mundare for Yellow Ribbon event Michelle Pinon Editor

Tammy Wade looks on while daughter Renaye unties the yellow ribbons that have been wrapped around the lamp posts on Mundare’s main street, a symbol of support for the teen.

Renaye Wade wasn’t expected to survive a horrific car accident on the Yellowhead freeway that left her with a severe brain injury. But exactly a year later to the day, she along with her mom Tammy, father Darren, siblings, other relatives and friends walked together down main street Mundare to remove yellow ribbons that had been tied on lamp posts since the crash happened on March 15. It was a major milestone in her year long journey that has been filled with many ups and downs. “We try not to think too far down the road,” says Tammy, who can’t believe all of the twists and turns along the way. Only 10 per cent of

people with biff diffuse, a severe brain injury, survive the trauma, but Renaye did. “It’s like shaken baby syndrome,” explains Tammy, which sheared off nerves and cables in the brain. “Some will mend and some won’t,” notes Tammy. But some of things that were on Renaye’s side is the fact she’s young, 18, and female, adds Tammy. Renaye doesn’t remember the accident or two years prior to it, but she displayed great courage and determination to be able to walk again, speak again, and relearn many of the things that were erased because of the brain injury. Through it all, “She has the most wonderful attitude,” says Tammy. “She always has a smile on her face.” The hope is that Renaye will be able to walk better, and get

more function out of her left arm,” adds Tammy, who tries not get too far ahead of herself. Tammy describes Renaye as the type of kid who would not take no for an answer; so it’s no surprise to Tammy that her daughter wants to go back to school to become a judge. Before her accident Renaye had been upgrading and doing additional courses while attending Grant MacEwan University. She had been accepted into the law program, and would have started her first year last September if not for the accident. Renaye is a role model and inspiration, and talked about her recovery from a broken jaw, vertebrae, tailbone, cracked pelvis and brain injury to more than 100 people who attended the Wear Yellow Dinner and Dance in her honour on

March 15. “She still wants to go to school,” says Tammy, but instead of studying to be a lawyer, she now wants to be a judge, and be able to rewrite laws. Wear Yellow Day began as a result of her younger brother Adam, who spearheaded the event last April. He created a website, and an event on Facebook. Shortly after, Global News caught wind of the story, which garnered a great deal of interest, and created awareness on a larger scale. “It (wear yellow events) gave him a purpose. As she’s gotten better; he’s gotten better.” During the March 15 event, more than $2,100 was raised and the proceeds will be donated to the Glenrose Hospital in Edmonton and the Halvard Johnson Centre for Brain Injury in Ponoka.

RCMP Musical Ride coming to Bruderheim Michelle Pinon Editor

Thanks to resident Sherry Cote’s request, and Bruderheim Mayor Karl Hauch’s initiative; the community will be hosting the RCMP Musical Ride on Sept. 1. “I attended the RCMP Musical Ride many years ago, and have always thought about the possibility of hosting an event here in Bruderheim,” stated Cote. “Last summer I was on their website and saw that they were coming to Alberta in 2014. I brought this information to our Mayor, Karl Hauch, and he completed the application for Bruderheim.” “As always, when a resident inquires about anything, my job is to follow thru with their requests,” said Hauch, who put forward the request and waited for a reply. The reply came in the form of Sgt. Malcom Eskelson, who toured the Bruderheim Agricultural

Grounds last fall. “Fortunately, we got the initial two thumbs up from the RCMP. It proved invaluable that the town foreman, Bob Cote, was on hand to assist with showing Sgt. Eskelson around that day,” noted Hauch. As it turns out, Sgt. Eskelson and Bob Cote actually played ball in Bruderheim many years ago at Mugg’s Diamond against Bob. “Small world, huh!,” added Hauch. “This connection, I believe helped in cementing a relationship with Sgt. Eskelson. He left us, saying we would hear in the spring of this year if we would be successful in our request. He, (Sgt. Eskelson), advised us to keep it quiet until we hear officially, so we waited on pins and needles till this week to see if this would come to fruition.” It didn’t take long to set up an organizational meeting, and Sgt. Eskelson met with over a dozen representatives of community organiza-

tions this past Tuesday to go over some of the details and logistics associated with hosting the event. Hauch said the town is very fortunate to have the support of so many organizations, and tipped his hat to the Bruderheim Agricultural Society, which responded in writing to the official request by the town to allow the event to proceed on their grounds. “This is a wonderful opportunity for our community groups such as the ag. society to showcase what they are all about to many folks new to our community.” Hauch said it was also important to note that the town staff has “heartily embraced” the event. “We are having another organizing meeting next week with all who wish to be a part of the event to get this event planning in gear.” Hauch also thanked Sgt. Eskelson for coming to Bruderheim, and informing town and community representa-

tives what they will need to work on to host the event. The town has never hosted the event, and Hauch has never seen the RCMP Musical Ride live before, but he, along with many other residents, are excited to be a part of such an event.

“We are very grateful also to the RCMP as they will be trucking their horses, equipment and personnel to Bruderheim the day of the event, so we will not have to burden the town residents with the cost of stabling and housing all of the horses, this would have

been a very large cost. As it is, we already have significant corporate support already in hand for this event, so we are fortunate that this event will not burden our taxpayers.”

Lamont man charged in Grow-Op sting operation Michelle Pinon Editor

ALERT’s Green Team North, and members of the Edmonton Police Service and Fort Saskatchewan RCMP executed a search warrant at a Lamont residence. Inside the home police located three separate rooms used for growing marihuana plants in various stages of maturation. The total value of the

marihuana seized is estimated at $338,400. Approximately $3,500 worth of growing equipment was also removed from the home. A 64-year-old Lamont man was arrested at the home without incident. Vincent Dixon is charged with the production of a controlled substance and possession for the purpose of trafficking. Dixon is slated to appear in Provincial Court in Fort Saskatchewan on April 3. Mike Tucker, commu-

nications manager with ALERT, said they rely heavily on tips from the public and encourages people to keep their eyes and ears open. “It (growop) poses a significant risk to the neighbourhood.” In terms of a grow-op, Tucker said there is a lot of people coming and going. “The biggest thing is the odor,” added Tucker, who describes the smell as something similar to a skunk. “A lot of times the windows will be blacked out, and

there will be abnormal power cycles.” There are several dangers associated with a grow-op, and Tucker said mold and moisture is top of mind. With extreme temperatures and electrical usage, Tucker said there is a good chance of circuit overload and great risk of a fire. Since marjuana is a commodity for organized crime, there is a greater chance of other related criminal activity as well. “There is a big

difference between personal use and selling it.” Those caught selling marjuana face varying degrees of jail time, pointed out Tucker. While he can’t say definitively or not whether drugs is on the rise, they are at the forefront of police investigations. The ALERT team was established, and is funded by the Alberta Government. Tucker said the team brings together the province’s most sophisticated law

enforcement resources to tackle serious and organized crime. Nearly 400 municipal policy, RCMP, and sheriffs work for ALERT. To report suspicious activity or a suspected marihuana grow operation in your community, contact police or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477 (TIPS).

Local traffic enforcement operation nets 34 tickets Impaired driver and passenger charged Two Hills and Vegreville RCMP conducted a joint traffic enforcemnt operation in the counties of Lamont and Minburn on March 17. The traffic enforcement operation was conducted after receiving feedback from residents in the area who had concerns about traffic safety. The RCMP issued 34 violation tickets ranging from occupant restraint infractions, speeding in the Mundare School zone, other speeding infractions and driving

while unauthorized. One vehicle was seized as a result of this operation that was being operated by a suspended driver. While conducting speed enforcement in the area of Vegreville, RCMP officers located a vehicle travelling in excess of 148 km/hr, and was observed driving erratically by one of the RCMP officers. While in the process of intercepting this vehicle, two concerned motorists had contacted 911 out of concern for this same vehicle who was reported to be

driving while impaired. As a result of the vehicle stop, the male driver was arrested for impaired driving. A male passenger was also arrested on outstanding warrants, and the vehicle was seized. The male driver is facing charges of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, impaired operation of a motor vehicle, and driving while unauthorized. More charges could be laid as the investigation continues.

Opinion Are we preparing our children for their future or our past? Recently, much has been made of the government’s efforts to ensure that Alberta’s curriculum is more responsive to the many different ways in which students learn. I feel parents deserve to hear directly from me about my ministry’s efforts to ensure the provincial curriculum enables Alberta’s students to successfully compete in a dynamic, highly competitive world. Along with being the minister, I’m also a father of three children in the education system, and I too have experienced some of the frustrations expressed by parents in recent weeks. This is why I believe it is important for me to set the record straight about the anticipated reforms. I understand why some parents would be concerned with the allegation that mastery of the “basics’ and skills such as arithmetic and reading will play a less important role in the new curriculum than it did before. If this were the case, I would be concerned as well. But fortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. I wish to assure parents that these basic skills will serve as the foundation and starting point of every change made to the curriculum. What they won’t be is the end point. Through inquiry-based learning, we’ll build upon these basic, foundational skills while developing additional skills that the business community and

parents tell us are so critical. The conventional method of teaching fundamentals, whereby students rely heavily on memorization, versus a more engaged, inquirybased method are not mutually exclusive approaches to education. In fact, I believe it is crucial that we develop a curriculum that uses the best of both methods. However, surviving on mere memorization alone is a thing of the past. The modern economy demands creativity and problem solving, the application of critical thinking and an ability to collaborate and communicate. These skills lie at the heart of Alberta’s curriculum redesign. Top performing education jurisdictions, like Alberta, have increased their focus on these 21st century skills. We can’t ignore that without strong abilities in these areas, our kids will be left behind. But we also can’t ignore the concerns of parents. This is why we are responding in a thoughtful and collaborative manner. The redesign process is being led by parents, employers, teachers, students and school authorities, all of whom will be working together over the next two years to develop a curriculum that successfully weaves new competencies in with core skills like numeracy and literacy. Doing so will help reinforce literacy and numeracy across all subjects and better focus

a curriculum that has ballooned to approximately 1400 outcomes. Despite recent criticism, parents should know and take comfort in the fact that according to the most recent international tests our K-12 students remain at the top of international rankings. Alberta’s overall results are tremendously positive. Out of the 74 jurisdictions from around the world that took part in the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) survey, Alberta ranked 11th in math, 5th in reading, and 4th in science. Notably, Alberta’s 15year-olds are actually outperforming Alberta’s

Kerry Anderson Publisher

adults in these OECD rankings. Our strength and performance internationally is due in part to Alberta’s willingness to continually adapt. This year is a great example. In response to years of consultation and research, we recently launched some groundbreaking initiatives. The new Dual Crediting Program, for instance, better integrates K-12, post-secondary and industry credentialing. The High School Flexibility Program empowers teachers to customize learning to better address individual student need. Eliminating Provincial Achievement Tests and implementing a more

Michelle Pinon Editor

robust standardized assessment at the start of the school year will provide parents and teachers with better information on how to tailor each child’s education going forward and help them measure improvement throughout the year. Curriculum needs to evolve as well. The days of a small group of educators taking 10 years to review curriculum one subject at a time are long over. We need to be more nimble and create curriculum that is more in tune with the local community and economy. Our curriculum must allow for creativity and excellence in teaching to shine through. We must embrace the individuali-

ty of the learner and ensure subject experts are teaching our kids. In short, our curriculum must become more relevant. We’ve been asked to listen and that’s exactly what we’re doing. But the truth is that Alberta is at the top because we have not been afraid to take action. I won’t apologize for putting the success of our children first but I also commit to continue listening in order to get it right. At the end of the day we must ask ourselves, are we preparing our children for their future or for our past? Jeff Johnson Minister of Education

Pension protest rally held at LHCC Michelle Pinon Editor

Members of Local 57/10 of the Alberta Union of Provincial Employees (AUPE) held a pension rally outside of the main entrance to the Lamont Health Care Centre March 20. Around a dozen members held up signs and flags, as a message to the province to keep its promises and keep pensions secure and payable for the life of the pensioners. “Our pensions are modest at best,” said Carol Palichuk, spokesman for Local 57/10. “The average pension only pays out $12,000 to $15,000 per year and that’s only if we work full-time. Some of us will only get $4,000 per year because of not having the years put in.” Palichuk, along with other members think they should watch its own spending instead of cutting pensions. It infuriates us to think that Redford (Premier) spent almost four times the amount of the pension to go to a funeral. It’s ridiculous!” According to the AUPE, Minister of Finance Doug Horner

announced changes to the Local Authorities Pension Plan (LAPP) and the Public Service Pension Plan last fall, and plans to pass those changes in a bill this spring. AUPE senior communications advisor Mark Wells explains that members want what they’ve been asking for, for decades. “Our members pay 50 per cent of all costs for these pension plans but do not have an equal say in how their pension plan is managed. Proper governance through a joint trusteeship where employers and employees can decide if the pension plan works for them would be the obvious choice. What we are seeing is a government that wants to impose changes to these pension plans without proper governance.” Wells went on to say, “The public sector pension plans are approximately 50-years-old as they exist today. The plan “promise” is a secure pension payable for the life of the pensioners. This promise has remained untouched during this entire time.” For example, a 25 per cent loss in the value relates to members who

contribute beyond Jan. 1, 2016 will pay the same cost, but will receive a benefit with 25 per cent lower value, added Wells. Wells says the government is not required to negotiate pension changes. This limitation was mitigated via the Public Service Pension Plan Board (PSPP) and the Local Authorities Pension Plan (LAPP) whose approval was required before any plan changes can be made (AUPE has members on each board.) “The Minister of Finance intends to remove this requirement so he can amend the pension promise without the approval of the respective pension board.” Wells points out that these proposed changes were announced without any consultation, and efforts to initiate talks with the finance minister have not taken place to date. A large scale rally was recently held at the Legislative Assembly of Alberta, and members are currently circulating a petition on behalf of the Alberta Labour Coalition on Pensions.

From Where I Sit: Laughter Can’t Hurt

By Hazel Anaka In your day-to-day life do you deal with members of that ubiquitous group called Generation Y? You know the group…….an enigma wrapped in a puzzle. Perhaps certain ones have driven you crazy and you’re not quite sure why. Trust me I understand the dangers of stereotyping anyone even as it happens to all of us everyday. Many of us

believe (or is that hope) we are special and unique. A one–of-a-kind treasure. Generational characterizations (and most others for that matter) are rooted in truth and happen so predictably they become the definition. As a Baby Boomer I spend a disproportionate amount of time working, finding ways to work more efficiently, and talking about how hard I work. I can also name other Boomers who do not fit the mould at all. That doesn’t mean I don’t share the biggest single definer of our group but rather that they are the exceptions to the rule. Sharing a commonality with others doesn’t mean we don’t have the desire or power as individuals to change ourselves. It just isn’t easy. It feels like swimming up stream or dropping the baton. Recently I was privileged to hear keynote speaker (and self-admit-

ted Gen Yer) Curt Steinhorst from the Centre for Generational Kinetics in Austin when he addressed the Travel Alberta conference. His talk was loaded with facts and stats. Best of all he was funny as he mimicked the worst of his tribe with the body language we all recognize. For the record Gen Y’s are defined as having been born between 1977 and 1995. They are known for their sense of entitlement. But it’s not their fault; it is a learned behavior and a parenting issue. As the mother of two Gen Y’ers I am proud to report not everyone in the group turns out that way. Thank God. By all the conventional markers of adulthood they tend to be three to five years behind. They suffer from delayed adolescence. They graduate from college, get married, have the house and kids……later. They typically get their first job at age twenty-seven. More

than eighty-six percent of them will return home at some point. They never had to become self-reliant so they didn’t. They are not tech savvy but rather tech dependent. They need ongoing feedback. If one of them is your employee or your child the best way to communicate is by texting. Even emails are too long. If you must use an email put the urgency and essence of the message in the subject line otherwise they won’t read it. Boomers on the other hand are writing novella-length notes in cursive. “We can’t read cursive,” he whined to a room full of laughter. If we are related to, working with or trying to sell to someone from outside our group it is worth our while to learn some of the key differences that make us distinct. Knowing how to laugh can’t hurt either from where I sit.

Kraft Hockeyville bid nets $25,000 in Bruderheim arena upgrades Michelle Pinon Editor

Even though the Town of Bruderheim did not make the final four in the Kraft Hockeyville contest, applicant Amber Tanner said it was an amazing experience. “I feel that it brought the whole community together,” says Tanner. “It made us stronger to be a part of this.” The Town of Bruderheim won’t walk away empty handed either as the top 16 finalists all receive $25,000 for arena upgrades in their communities. “I would love to apply next year, but I don’t know if we could have gotten any more votes. Everyone gave it all they could. We might just be too small of a community to be able to win against the big cities.” Tanner said a lot of work went into the bid with door to door campaigning, changing and

updating signs, and spreading the word through traditional and social media within a very short period of time. While Tanner admits she was initially disappointed when she heard the news, she knows that

she, along with many other volunteers and residents worked together to help make Bruderheim a better place to live. According to voting results in western Canada: Bruderheim

received 79,970 votes. The lowest number of votes was 61,086 votes, and the highest number of votes was Sylvan Lake at 1,059,932.

We had 28 of our 31 curlers take part with ages ranging from 7 to 15 and a great time was had by all. Prior to our bonspiel we had our Hot Shots competition that tests the skills our curlers have learned over the years. In our jr. competition - gold medal went to Mikayla O’Brien, silver to James Schickerowsky and bronze to Kira Snyder. The intermediate competition was hotly contested and required a throw-off to determine the winner. In the end, the gold medal went to Brayden Nimchuk, silver to Carter Schickerowsky and bronze to Ali Akitt. In our sr. competition the gold medal went to Zack Akitt, silver to Carson

Shickerowsky and bronze to Nick Zachoda. We also had a very special guest join us for lunch and talk to our group. Lamont’s own Alison Kotylak, who was the 5th player on the 2014 World Juniors Ladies Gold Medal team and former Lamont Jr. Curler, spoke about her experiences growing up and practicing in Lamont Curling Club. She brought her Gold Medal from Switzerland and was available to take pictures and answer questions. Alison is an inspiration for all our curlers and with a little time and effort who knows who might follow in her footsteps from our club. Lamont Jr. Curling would like to thank Elmer Pullishy and family for the great job he does with the ice and the whole facility. Thanks to our coaches Janine Whiting, Mike Nowicki, Tami Fedyniak and Tim

Stodola for their on-ice and off-ice commitment. Finally, to all our curlers remember to slide straight, sweep hard and always have a great time! We encourage all young curlers to join us in November 2014 for another great season of learning to curl.

Morgan Fedyniak presented Alison Kotylak with roses following her special presentation to the junior curlers.

Silver medal winners: Carson Schickerowsky, Braydon Nimchuk, Morgan Fedyniak and Liam Zabel.. Gold medal winners were: Ainsley Lopushinsky, Jordan Stodola, Margaret Balsillie and Madison Heinz. Missing was Cody Onushko.

Junior hotshot winners: Mikayla O’Brien (gold), James Schickerowsky, (silver), and Kira Snyder, (bronze).

Bronze medal winners: Tyson Snyder, Shaelyn Whiting, Rebecca Heinz and James Schickerowsky.

Hats off to a classy lady and her beautiful quilt collection Michelle Pinon Editor

Eleanor Ewen wears many hats. A bit of a jack of all trades, but it was her quilts that recently caught the attention of fellow Chipmanite Zenia Maydanski, other residents as well as members of the Lamont Red Hatters Society. “It all started out with my hats,” explains Ewen, who recently lent a couple of hats to friend Brenda Doerksen, who was in the Chipman Players recent production of Peril On The High Seas. “I had several ladies who said they wanted to come over and see my hats.” So Ewen decided to display some of her quilts as well. So on March 1, Ewen held her first Moon Dance ‘n More Exhibition which featured 14 different

quilts and 82 hats, two of them (circa 1928) were on loan to Doerksen. Close to 20 people visited the exhibition. She had so many positive comments, and Maydanski took photos for the Lamont Leader newspaper in the hopes her talents would be recognized. “I was flying 20 feet high,” admits Ewen, who was thrilled to share a couple of her passions with others. Ewen, 79, talks excitedly while showcasing her handiwork. She is one of the founding members of the Fort Saskatchewan Quilters Guild, and loves learning new techniques. “It’s fun learning with others,” and is a looking forward to the guild’s 25th anniversary in September of 2015. “My kitchen is my sewing room,” laughs Ewen, who makes the most of the space in her

charming mobile home. She says quilting is a “lifesaver” for her as she lives alone. The hours float by when she’s cutting and sewing squares of fabric together. She always has works in progress, and is happy to be able to keep up tradition. Whenever Ewen gets the chance, she likes to go shopping for hats at second hand and antique stores. She also loves to reimagine hats by adding different embellishments such as scarves and flowers. She proudly goes over her hats, and points to a beautiful coral coloured one that she wore on her honeymoon. Each hat and quilt hold special meaning to her, and she is passing on her handiwork for other family members and friends to enjoy now and in the future.

MLA Fenske - no plans for leadership race By MICHELLE PINON Even though it's business as usual, Fort Saskatchewan-Vegreville MLA Jacquie Fenske paused long enough to address Premier Redford's resignation. "The timing of the announcement was a surprise," admits Fenske, who was attending a budget meeting when notification was made. "I was in a meeting on budget estimates when

an email was sent out that the premier would have an announcement in an hour. That was the same place I and many other MLA's and some ministers were during the announcement as the business of government has and does continue." Fenske wanted to thank the premier and her family for their service to Albertans. "Ensuring Alberta is positioned as a leader in

Canada and globally, and preparing Albertans for that role is still the goal. How we get there might see some adjustment under a new premier. For now, Dave Hancock has been asked to ensure the business of government continues." In fact, Hancock was sworn in as interim premier Sunday. "As for me, I am not considering running for leader and I, like you, will be waiting

to see who is willing to step forward. I know I will have questions of those candidates as to their position on their approach to some of our legislation, and I hope all our constituents do too." The selection process of a new leader for the party will be decided by the Progressive Conservative Assocation executive, added Fenske. "The constitution changes require that a

leader be selected no less than four months, (July), and no more than six months, (September), from the resignation. "Another change alows for only the top two candidate names to be considered if a majority is not achieved on the first ballot. This is unlike the last two nominations where third place candidates were also on the ballot. The executive could also call for an

emergency annual general meeting and amend that process, but that will be their decision." Fenske, newly appointed to the Rural Economic Task Force, will begin her meetings this week. "My office is setting up some community meetings and we have Minister Horner coming to Fort Saskatchewan to speak at the Chamber luncheon this week."

Soldier gives students glimpse into mission

PHOTOS COURTESY CPL. SAGSTUEN

Cpl. Corey Sagstuen gives instructions to members of the Afghan army. He was always near the line of fine, and was shot twice during his two tours of duty.

Michelle Pinon Editor

Andrew Mayor Heather Tait, was one of several people who took the opportunity to thank Cpl. Corey Sagstuen and other Canadian soldiers for their years of service. After 12 years, the loss of 158 lives, Tait congratulated him and fellow members of the military for their service March 12 during a special assembly at Andrew School. “Your strength has protected the weak; your bravery has brought hope to the hopeless; and the helping hand you have extended to the Afghan people has given them faith that a better future is within their grasp.” Cpl. Sagstuen, who also resides in Andrew, talked about his two tours of duty in Afghanistan, and how several of his close friends died, and how many of his fellow soldiers were injured in the line of duty. “Nearly 40 per cent were my best friends,”

stated Cpl. Sagstuen, who was shot twice. “Our job was to try and help out the Afghans,” explained Cpl. Sagstuen, who is a medic with Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry. “We tried to help the local population,” added Cpl. Sagstuen with treatments for typhoid fever and malaria as well as social development and illiteracy. “The only thing between living and dying was a box,” stated Cpl. Sagstuen. “Having survived my near death, I’ve come to appreciate what people take for granted.” Students and staff got a better appreciation for what Cpl. Sagstuen was saying when they watched a photographic slide show which illustrated some of action he was engaged in on the front lines. For example, 300 metres from a shelled out school, that was used as combat outpost for troops, was a field, which served as a battlefield. “This is where the bad guys were. It wasn’t fun...

But sometimes you had to do bad things to do my job.” Cpl. Sagstuen described the Afghan war as the forgotten war. “It’s almost a forgotten war that Canada didn’t want to admit we were in a fight.” He said the worst fight was in June of 2006 when 16 Canadian soldiers died, and over 112 solders were wounded. “That’s big numbers. That’s somebody’s Dad. Somebody’s son who stood up for you.” He told the students to be grateful that they get to go to school, to thank their teachers, focus on their studies, aspire to be a better person, and to appreciate their family and friends. Cpl. Sagstuen said he was proud of what he did in Afghanistan. “I’m proud of what my brothers and sisters did in Afghanistan. It was a humbling experience, and made me a better person at the end of the day.”
