Winter returns with a fury Friday’s white out

Enough with the snow: On what was supposed to be the second day of spring Central Alberta was hit with another major snow storm with wind gusts up to 70 km/hour. Snow fall varied but was about 10 cm.The wind caused most of the problems.(Above) Two county trucks stop to lend a hand and help pull a vehicle out of the ditch just south of Webbs in Lamont, early Friday morning.

Mundare Council questions downtown building standards Developer asks for variances but Town awaits drainage report - then 40-day deadline countdown begins JOHN MATHER Reporter Mundare council seems to be struggling with whether to retain its architectural standards for downtown buildings or not. A developer has concerns over the time taken for approval of his development permit, according to the council at the regular council meeting on March 20. The development on a vacant lot across from the pizza restaurant on Main St. will have two lower floor businesses with three residential units on the second floor. “The developer wants variances and under the Municipal Government Act (MGA) there is a 40day period to react to the variance request or it is deemed to be expired,” said Mundare CAO Colin Zyla. He added that a Municipal Planning Commission (MPC) will be put together to hear about variances on the

project once they all have been submitted to the town’s development officer. He said administration had concerns about architectural controls, and some design improvements, which have to be dealt with. While the developer is eager to get going, Zyla reported, he also has had to come up with a drainage plan that hasn’t been provided yet. “The town requires certain standards and the developer must comply with it,” said Zyla.

Councillor Jaime Burghardt said that although he gets where they were coming from on the time frame and delays, he added “We have strict guidelines on Main Street.” Mayor Mike Saric said, “The problem is we’ve caved in the past. We maybe shouldn’t have development controls if we keep circumventing them. “We brought them in to build a street with a certain appeal to it. We have to ask who’s controlling the development

of Main Street – us or the developer? There were legitimate reasons for those controls.” Zyla said one of the stumbling blocks was construction of a parapet that must go three-quarters of the way around the building. Burghardt asked if the building isn’t on a corner lot why does the parapet have to go so far. “I’m talking about the little things, not major things like drainage. We want to encourage development,” she added. The 40-day period

starts when all information is provided, said Zyla. But the developer still hasn’t provided the drainage plan and that’s holding up the 40-day window. The MPC studies variance requests and makes a decision. If the owner then wants to appeal, it will go to the subdivision appeal board.

If that occurs then surrounding landowners will be notified and if they object, it could further delay the development. Zyla told council since Feb. 2, the landowner has supplied some variance requests, but without the drainage report it’s not a complete application.

Minor Hockey playoffs: Lamont teams knock off competitors to win league titles KERRY ANDERSON These are some of the results from the 16/60 Minor Hockey League games held recently. (Please note that scores and scoring is taken from the website, and some game scores and scoring is dependent on proper league entries. Deadline is typically Sunday evenings, so if scores are not noted they may have been entered after this time. http://1660.ab.ca). After downing Onoway on March 14, Lamont Tier 3 Novice started a playoff series against Westlock on Saturday on the road with a 3-1 victory. Lamont's Ryan Carstairs scored all three Lamont goals as the team entered the third with a 3-0 lead.

4 - The Lamont Leader (Lamont, Alberta), Wednesday, March 28, 2018

Opinion The criminal attack on rural Alberta Farms are no longer safe. Rural life is no longer a haven. Criminals are in full-out attack-mode against rural Alberta, with property crime up 23 percent in the past five years. Don’t blame the police. Alberta's justice system is so soft that police are operating on a "catch and release" program. Rural policing is difficult enough being so spread-out, that rural Alberta has come to look like easy pray to the criminal element. Citizens on Patrol groups have sprung up in 20-30 new Alberta communities in only the past few years. Farmers and acreage owners with security cameras have discovered that they have been robbed in the middle or the day or night, and brazenly, in the centre of their yards. Rural businesses have been robbed, day or night, at a rate never before seen in this province. Often these crooks are found to be on drugs, and unpredictable. Much of the time they are also armed. Many rural people have weaponized themselves with easy access to bats, knives, handguns or hunting rifles. But the question for rural property owners has become: what can they legally do to defend themselves and their posessions? There have been several cases of late where assaulting criminals or even killing them, has turned into charges against the property-owners. Just last month an Okotoks man was arrested on aggravated assault and firearms charges after he caught two people going through his vehicle. In Saskatchewan, a nervous farmer accidentally shot and killed a trespasser who he suspected was going to rob him. There's a big difference between someone directly threatening your life, or a person stealing gas or tools however. Vigilante justice has always been a tricky issue in a civilized society. But it’s understandable with there being so few police, covering such a large area, and with such long response times. It's difficult to blame property owners from wanting to take matters into their own hands. Still the best defences are; signs, cameras, fences, gates, and alarms. All of them, really. Call the police… and wait. Unless your family’s life is threatened, ask yourself if it’s worth going to jail? To sit and seeth would not be easy for many, and who can blame them really. Kerry Anderson

FROM WHERE I SIT: No Need to Re-Invent the Wheel

By Hazel Anaka Before Christmas I was scoping out the books at Costco. With their limited space they usually carry the hottest titles and always, always have a discounted price. I picked up a copy of Timothy Ferriss’ newest titles Tools of Titans and Tribe of Mentors. He is the bestselling author of the 4 Hour Work Week. I recently found a copy of that one at Goodwill. These two books are hefty. They’re over-sized yet lighter than you’d think looking at their dimensions. I dove into Tribe first and loved it, even though much of it had no clear application to my life. I’m not an elite athlete, tech genius, or savvy start-up investor. I’m not the cofounder of Pinterest, brand manager of Uber, MTV music producer, professor, thought leader, author, producer,

CEO of NY Public Radio, coach, entrepreneur, or countless other categories of experts. Yet, I admired the depth and breadth of pros he interviewed. Much of the content has been captured on his blog and through his podcasts, neither of which I've explored yet. Even eager readers may be intimidated by the size of the books. Non-readers might run in the other direction. What makes these books infinitely readable are the short chapters. Two or three pages per interviewee consisting of short bio, a pull quote, and the answers to a few probing questions. Bitesized nuggets of gold. (Paraphrased) questions like: 1) What is the book (or books) you’ve given most as a gift, and why? Or what one to three books have greatly influenced your life? 2) What message would you put on a giant billboard and why? 3) What’s an unusual habit or absurd thing you love? 4) What do you do when you feel overwhelmed or unfocused? 5) What failure set you up for later success? 6) What bad recommenda-

tions do you hear in your profession or area of expertise? 7) What advice would you give a smart, driven college student about to enter the real world? I’m willing to bet that our answers to those questions may explain in part, why they achieved mega-success and we haven’t. So what’s to be gained by investing time and money in these or any other equally rich resources? Quite simply, there are commonalities to these success stories. Many of the same most gifted/most influential books appear over and over again. Many of them are in my library, some read, some not. Virtually all of the people

say they meditate daily, often for as little as ten minutes. There are lessons for the taking implicit in the failure stories, the billboard messages, the bad advice bit. The question is, will we pick them up? Tools of Titans has many non-profile chapters that explore topics in greater depth. Trust me there are many, many ideas in both books that will never apply to my life but the ones I’ve already begun using have improved the quality of my life. It may be as simple as creating The Jar of Awesome (a jar full of slips of paper capturing something wonderful that happened) or the ten minutes of silent contemplation I do when I

first wake up. Bottom line, no one needs to reinvent the wheel when

Horrific discovery

Lamont Atoms win banner

15 sheep carcasses dumped on rural Lamont property - show signs of abominable treatment MAUREEN SULLIVAN Toni-Michelle Bentau is raising alarm bells after a shocking discovery near their rural home in Lamont County. On Friday morning on the way to work her husband discovered 15 sheep dumped on a property near their own. Bentau uses RR 182 just north of Hwy 16 several times a day. The couple believed the sheep were dumped on Thursday night or early Friday morning hoping that the snow storm would cover it up. Most likely someone used a truck or larger vehicle to drive off the highway and discard the animals on the side of the road, she thought. Benteau said she was horrified by what they found, 15 animals in varying degrees of distress and dismemberment, their ear tags were

cut off and some had cuts and gashes. They contacted the Fort Saskatchewan RCMP on Friday but they were still lying near the road the next morning. To n i - M i c h e l l e describes the incident as cruel and inhumane and wants to find out what happened and why. She videotaped the carnage and uploaded to Facebook. By Monday morning it had been viewed more than 17,000 times. "Their lives deserved better. If anyone has any information‌ please, please light everybody up. Make people change. "This is just one of many incidents that happen out here," she says. "People come off the highway and dump animals alive or dead - even human bodies. "It's a hazard to our community and we care.

We want people to be accountable. We want people to be responsible." Because the animals were left out all weekend they have become a buffet for all the predators, says Bentau. The RCMP say they are looking into the incident.

Lamont County road bans beginning in full force soon JOHN MATHER Reporter It’s a sure sign of spring across rural Alberta, and Lamont County is no exception with road bans starting. “We will probably start the roads bans next Monday, April 2,” said Lamont County communications coordinator, Heather Atkinson. “The bans will last until the freeze/frost cycle stops.” She added that this is something the county can’t put a specific date to. The county has already had one road closure this year. Township Road 560 is closed right now for about a mile between Range Road 195 and Range Road 200. It was closed on Tuesday, March 20 when a semi truck got stuck. “There was a spot where some scheduled upgrades hadn’t been completed yet,” explained Atkinson. “The road became saturated with the thawing cycle recently and created a soft spot, which made the road virtually impassable.” County crews have established a temporary, so the road is open to local traffic, but remains closed to heavy trucks. Atkinson said further road closures are really dependent on the weather.

“It depends on how much snow some areas have gotten,” she said. “Places that got more snow will be wetter and closures may be necessary if repairs are needed.” She added crews are still cleaning up from the last snowfall more than a week ago. Atkinson said that public works officials are reporting that this year is looking better than last year for the simple reason that there’s a pretty regular freeze thaw cycle. “The frost is helping out by freezing at night and thawing during the day,” she said. “Last year the weather warmed up unseasonably and there was no nighttime freezing which seriously impacted the road conditions.” The county has approximately 2,100 km of roads and the ban will be applied to all gravel and some oilbased roads. The road bans restricted vehicle weights to either 75 or 90 per cent, depending on the road conditions. Before the bans go on a county supervisor drives all the roads to determine their condition and then the bans are placed on a case-by-case basis. In addition to the road bans, part of the spring program is steaming culverts to help with run off. “It’s not part of the roads ban pro-

8 - The Lamont Leader (Lamont, Alberta), Wednesday, 28, 2018

Mundare council discusses new code of conduct JOHN MATHER Reporter Council wrestled with content for a new code of conduct by-law at the March 20 regular council meeting. The by-law is required because of changes to the Municipal Government Act (MGA). According to Mundare’s CAO Colin Zyla, the by-law has to be in place by July 23. He supplied council with a sample drafted by Alberta Urban Municipal Association (AUMA) to use as a template for the town’s own by-law. “This is about creating respect between councillors; council and public; and council and staff,” said Mayor Mike Saric. Zyla will take the feedback received from council and bring back a final draft by-law to be passed. Council also discussed

who should speak on behalf of council. To that Zyla pointed out that it would normally be the mayor, followed by the deputy mayor, but he wasn’t sure what happened if a councillor was asked questions at an event and how they should respond. Saric stated councillors can’t speak on behalf of the town, but they are allowed to have opinions. Once a decision is reached by council, the entire council must fully support it. Zyla added administration can only report what council decides. He, as CAO, can’t offer any opinion or speak for council. “I can tell people what council did, but the rationale has to come from the mayor or the council spokesman.”

Also discussed were rules of confidentiality, conflicts of interest, and the potential use of influence, all of which can be included in the code of conduct. Council will add a general statement on accepting gifts, hospitality or any other items, that a member of the public might find unreasonable. These items will be limited to a value of $100. Public hearing set for zoning changes Council will move to correct some zoning issues for land in the Whitetail Crossing area. The land currently is zoned R2A for singlefamily dwellings and duplexes. CAO Colin Zyla said some issues with the setbacks in the area have prompted the changes. The changes will be

presented to council for first reading at the next council meeting on April 3  with a public hearing scheduled for May 8 at 7 p.m. Zyla said there could be a large turnout for the public hearing, adding that notices will be sent to the entire Whitetail Crossing area. “Let everybody know and if we have a full house, then we have a full house,” said councillor Jaime Burghardt. Zyla added there are currently no development plans for the area to be rezoned. Future of town clinic still up in the air A meeting with Covenant Health late last month resolved nothing in terms of Mundare getting its medical clinic reopened. The clinic at the St. Mary Immaculate Care

Centre closed indefinitely last November. “Covenant Health put forward a number of suggestions,” Mayor Mike Saric told council on March 20. “And having tried unsuccessfully to recruit a doctor to stay in the community, they are leaning to using a nurse/practitioner in the community.” The way these two positions are funded is different, added Saric. He said the doctor would be less expensive for the Covenant because doctors can bill separately, while a nurse practitioner would be part of the hospital staff. “They asked if we’d help fund that position,” he said. “They are going to come up with some numbers and will report back to us.” Saric added that he spoke with a pharmacist

in Mundare who told him he felt the nurse/ practitioner would be a better fit with the community because that person would be in the community five days a week, while that wouldn’t be the case with a doctor. “We’re waiting for some more information from Covenant Health,” said CAO Zyla. “Then we’ll have another meeting with them.” Bag sponsorship on hold Mundare council will wait until it passes a budget to determine whether to assist the Lamont County FCSS with funding for kindergarten school bags. The FCSS sent a request letter to the town asking for help funding the bags. The cost of 75 bags is about $1,500. Continued on Page 9

Damage done to a resident’s fence by a Town of Lamont grader last week due to a slope and wet snow.

Fence destroyed after Town of Lamont grader slips down slope on wet snow MAUREEN SULLIVAN Randy Hicox was on his property Friday when the operator of a Town of Lamont grader took down his neighbours fence. The town was out cleaning up from the snow fall from the night before when the accident occurred.. The work was being done on the alleyway behind 50A Avenue. Hicox said, "I am just like one of many tax payers who are growing continually frustrated, while taxpayers’ homes flood

and alleyways deteriorate.� Twenty minutes earlier, Hicox had spoken to another operator on a different piece of town equipment who according to Hicox said he was not very good at this and that he had only been on that machine for eight hours or so. Of concern to Hicox was the fact that the town department head was getting upset at him for taking pictures from private property. When asked for a comment the Town of

Lamont CAO Sandi Maschmeyer stated, "it was an unfortunate accident." Town foreman Richard Chernyk said that the area in question was a bottleneck with a slope from the south side and the grader slipped into the residence's fence. "We spoke with the homeowner and agreed to fix the fence when weather permitted. We put up a snow fence on Friday so that the owners dog wouldn't get out and will repair the fence as soon as possible."

“Why 75?� asked councillor Jaime Burghardt. CAO Zyla said he felt the number was for kindergarten students across the county so the amount from Mundare would be smaller since there are a smaller number of students in Lamont. He further added that there is a budget of $10,000-15,000 annually for public relations that is used for various requests from the community. “It would be nice to get these requests at the beginning of the year,� commented Mayor Mike Saric. “Then we could address all of them at the same time. Who knows what else is coming.� It was pointed out donations are made to volunteers’ suppers and other community events through the PR budget. Zyla will prepare a list of previous annual donations. He will also contact FCSS to see how much would be required for Mundare students and how the town would be recognized for the donation. Councillor Irene Talaga moved to defer the item to a budget meeting. Council will hold its budget meeting tomorrow March 29.

Bruderheim Council hears reports from COPs, Gibson Energy JOHN MATHER Reporter The Bruderheim council received an update from Gibson Energy on the Heartland Sulphur operation, which is starting up adjacent to Bruderheim in Strathcona County. Gibson has partnered with Heartland Sulphur, which has developed the sulphur storage facility. Jeffrey Taylor, Senior Commercial Development representative for Gibson Energy told council, Gibson owns the land the plant is located on. “We’re the landowners of the land and we designed and built the rail and road routes on the property,” he reported. Sulphur will be delivered to the plant by Gibson transports from Fort McMurray where it will be loaded on rail tank cars and shipped by rail to ports for worldwide distribution. “The project started 16 months ago,” he told council. “And is now nearing completion. It should be fully operational by June.” The development saw the construction of five rail lines into the facility along with access roads into the plant. Taylor said Gibson worked with Strathcona County to build a better approach road and turnout from Highway 15. The road construction means there will be no weight restrictions on the roads during spring thaw seasons. According to Taylor, there would be approximately 40 trucks using the facility in a 24-hour period. That, he added would load 20 rail cars. Heartland will employ five to nine full time employees operating on a 24/7 rotation. Gibson owns the 12acre site and will continue to own the rail tracks and roads, while Heartland will own the sulphur facility only. Mayor Karl Hauch asked town administration to have Heartland

Sulphur contacted to give a report to council in the future. Bruderheim’s Citizens on Patrol (COPS) group Wayne Olechow gave Bruderheim council an update on behalf of Bruderheim’s Citizens on Patrol (COPS) group. He said COPS had made up cards that are left on doors of businesses to let owners know the patrol has been in the area. COPS is the eyes and ears of RCMP, he told council. “We support them in different ways,” he reported. “We drive throughout Chipman, Lamont, Bruderheim, and Fort Saskatchewan looking for anything out of the ordinary and report to the RCMP.” He said the group, with about 30 active members, runs a lock it or lose it program, inspecting vehicles in the area to see if valuables or identification is easily visible. He told council the group patrolled 8,500 km and put in 615 hours from September to September 2016-17. This year, those numbers have significantly increased to roughly 12,000 km and 4,500 hours. “We’re currently preparing to buy a speed board purchased to use in Bruderheim, Fort Saskatchewan, and Chipman,” Olechow said. “It will show drivers their speed as they enter lower speed zones at the entrances to those communities.” He said the board will cost about $5,000 and will be purchased from grants the organization has received. Olechow added COPS is working on replacing some handheld radios and scanners as the RCMP move to digital radios. Members will also be receiving first aid training. The group is always looking for additional funding he told council. The volunteer members currently provide fuel for the patrols at their

own cost. The group currently receives funding from Shell, Wal-Mart, Sherritt, and Co-op. Councillor Judy Schueler said she felt the organization does good work, and added that

a.m. to 4 p.m., and Thursdays  3 to 8 p.m.  It is also open  on Saturdays  from  10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Councillor Judy Schueler wondered if it would beneficial for the library at Bruderheim

Council has addressed snow clearing issues which may cause a danger to the public. reports have shown a decrease in break and enters in the area. Council updated on library activities The council received an update on the Bruderheim Public Library operations from board members Wayne Olechow and Virginia Differenz at its March 21 meeting. The Metro Kalyn Library is located next to the town office and provides education, recreation, and is just a place to sit back and read or use computers for all members of the community, Olechow reported. It has successfully operated for 35 years and features 10,000 items. Through its membership in the Northern Lights Library system it can access other libraries across the province. The library recently added a handicapped access. The most recent statistics, Olechow reported, show there were 1,200 visitors last year borrowing 4,000 items. An additional 3,000 items were borrowed from other libraries. Students, he said, use it for studies and research. The library is administered by a seven person volunteer board and has two employees. It is open on Tuesdays  3 to 8 p.m.,  Wednesdays  11

School and the town library to merge. Olechow said it has been previously talked about and pointed out that Lamont had done this and the boards are investigating how it’s all working out. Bruderheim CAO Patty Podoborozny told council administration has also started looking at a possible merger and has had conversations with the school board about working together. She said a bus tour might be planned to visit other area libraries and see how they operate.

Parade vehicle upgrades floated Deputy Mayor Pat Lee questioned administration about the state of the town’s parade float. “The current float is falling apart,” she said. “I wonder whether it should be rebuilt, replaced, or something. Do we want to just drive around in a truck with our name on it or do we want to move it up a notch. I think this needs to be discussed.” Mayor Karl Hauch agreed saying that the town gets many invitees to appear in parades from Bon Accord, Ardrossan, Chipman, Mundare, and other communities. Councillor Schueler agreed but added if it’s a council float then council members have to get out and decorate it. “The last time I went on the float, the council didn’t do anything. The decorations were done by administration.” Administration will prepare a report for council. Lack of snow clearing concerns councillor Councillor George Campbell expressed disappointment that the sidewalk on 52 Ave. near the arena hasn’t yet been cleared of snow and ice. Podoborozny told coun-

cil that she was preparing a study clearing snow from sidewalks and trail systems over summer so a definite town policy could be established. Currently Bruderheim has no snow removal policy. However, Campbell was concerned people, including children, walking on road rather than the snow-covered sidewalk presented an unsafe condition. The sidewalk in question is near apartments and Podoborozny said the town doesn’t clean in front of residential areas. “My point is now we have a dangerous situation,” said Campbell. “People have to walk on the road and regardless of responsibility, we should clear it for safety. If something should happen who is responsible? We’re shirking responsibility by not cleaning sidewalk.” Podoborozny said council could pass a motion to clear the sidewalk and, “we’ll take direction from council.” Campbell made a motion to clear the block in question, with Schueler adding an amendment that it is done only to the end of this snow season. Council passed the motion by a 3-2 vote.

ROAD BANS in effect

MARCH 27 to JUNE 1, 2018 Roads bans protect the safety and integrity of our roads. When the ground thaws, roads are more vulnerable to damage from heavy vehicles. To prevent this, vehicles are required to reduce their axle weight to 75 per cent.

Protect our roads. Lighten your loads. Further information:

14 - The Lamont Leader (Lamont, Alberta), Wednesday, March 28, 2018

Pembina gives Bruderheim Seniors funding to complete project MAUREEN SULLIVAN Carson Scott from Pembina Pilelines was a guest at the Bruderheim Seniors Club potluck dinner on Thursday, March 22. After dinner he presented a $5,000 cheque to the club for a shortfall in funds the club had for paving their parking lot and making it more accessible. Unfortunately the quote for the work was optimistic and the club had to scramble to make up the difference. Mr Scott said, "Pembina Pipelines is

pleased to give back to the community. It is a fundamental part of good corporate citizenship." Seniors president Virginia Differenz then showed Mr. Scott a plaque that will be mounted at the Senior's Club. It thanked Pembina, the Town of Buderheim, the Government of Alberta CFEP Grant and the Government of Canada EAF Grant for their contribution to upgrading their parking lot in 2017 and making it more wheelchair accessible.

Principal plans to save old class photos MAUREEN SULLIVAN There are pictures of every graduating class hanging on the walls of Lamont High for the last 65 years. However the earliest ones are starting to fade away and Principle Sharon McLean would like to do something about that. She is looking to form a committee to "preserve the beautiful composites in the building." The issues the school is facing with the composites is that they have been put up in the common area of the school and they have begun to fade. They are also running out of space on the

walls and wonder what to do with the pictures going forward. The pictures are a huge draw with past students who make a special trip in to look at the pictures: like former student Cory Kornicki, an RCMP officer in British Columbia, who called and asked to see his class picture when he was in the area. The current students love to look at the pictures of their parents and grandparents and show them off to others. They also like to laugh at the hairstyles in the old photographs. The school hopes to get the community

involved in making choices about the composites, whether to restore them and how, whether to digitize them so they available to download. "They are a beautiful history of the school and the community and we would like the community to be involved in the restoration," says Principle McLean. If you are interested in preserving the composites please get in touch with Principal Sharon McLean or Vice Principle Curtis Starko at 780-8952228.

THIS WEEK ON THE WEB after a year and a half in Calgary to be part of a breeding program, while the adults will stay on in Canada to try and Two giant Pandas on loan from China, along with their two Canadianborn babies, have been flown from the Toronto Zoo and will be calling Calgary home for possibly the next five years. Da Mao and Er Shun, plus offspring Jia Panpan and Jia Yueyue, will be the first pandas to visit the city since the 1988 Olympics and will set up shop in a multi-milliondollar facility at the Calgary Zoo, which was built solely with them in mind. The two panda parents were loaned to Canadian zoos for 10 years as part of a 2012 deal with China. The pandas have lived at the Toronto Zoo since 2013, where the cubs were born and later famously photographed in the arms of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The image was then promptly turned into a butter sculpture. Global News went on to explain that the cubs will head back to China

become second-time parents. "It's a huge privilege for us to have them,” said a Calgary Zoo rep.

Catching leprechauns

Andrew School students celebrated St. Patrick’s Day recently looking for mischievious leprechauns around the school with traps they created and built.
