Lamont County councillor questions credit card usage Michelle Pinon Editor
Credit card purchases made by Lamont County staff not only raised the eyebrows of Div. 5 Coun. Neil Woitas who was reviewing statements recently, but also prompted him to ask related questions to administration during the November 14 meeting. “I did some checking,” stated Coun. Woitas, who had been pouring over credit card expenditures which he said has topped $188,000 with just over two months to
go before the end of the year. He noted there were also six pages of statements that he has yet to obtain. With thousands dollars spent on travel, retail, groceries, etc., Coun. Woitas stated: “There’s some big numbers in five months…I’m just wondering how much abuse there is?” He also cited purchases made through the Ticket Pro site that sells tickets online for sporting events, concerts and theatre performances as well as a couple of entries for golf fees amounting to hundreds
of dollars. Corporate Services Director Debbie Hackman told Coun. Woitas she couldn’t tell him off the top of her head who made the purchases and for what specific items, but would be able to provide that information upon further investigation and research into the matter. Coun. Woitas also asked aloud: “Do all these people need credit cards?” He also wanted to know if there were maximum limits on the cards. Chief Administrative Officer Robyn Singleton said he
had every right to raise concerns but cautioned Coun. Woitas not to name any names or departments. Coun. Woitas shook his head several times during the discussion, and pointed out: “If I ran a business like that I’d be out of business. We have to be accountable for every dollar we spend.” Hackman told Coun. Woitas the county has a corporate account, but staff have individual credit card numbers and individual limits, and those limits are established by policy.” Reeve Wayne
Woldanksi noted that every expenditure is on the statement, and each department head has to sign off on those expenditures. Hackman said she could provide a report if he has specific concerns. Reeve Woldanski added that both himself and the deputy reeve look at those credit card statements on a monthly basis. “I think we have a pretty robust system, but this is a good opportunity to look at it again,” said Singleton. Coun. Dave Diduck noted that one department has sig-
nificant expenditures. Coun. Woitas asked if the county had been burn’t with credit card charges by a disgruntled employee in the past? “Not since I’ve been here, and I’ve been here 13 years,” replied Hackman. Coun. Woitas said he would provide what information he had to Hackman and made the motion to direct administration to report on the credit card internal control processes and report back to council at the December council meeting.

Public medical clinic will temporarily shut down at Mary Immaculate Care Centre Michelle Pinon Editor
The medical clinic at the Mary Immaculate Care Centre will be closing temporarily at the end of November. Anthony Brannen, site administrator for Mary Immaculate Care Centre and St. Joseph’s General Hospital, confirmed the news during a telephone interview with The Lamont Leader November 16. Brannen said the medical clinic will be closed for an indefinite period of time starting on November 29. Effectively, members of the public which utilize those services will either have to travel to Vegreville or Lamont until such time a replacement physician can be
found. The medical clinic operated two days a week, and Brannen said on average a physician would see between 20 and 30 residents a day in the span of five hours per day. Brannen said some people have voiced their concerns about having to travel outside of the community for medical services. “Transportation has been a problem in
rural areas. That was identified a number of years ago, but no one has really come up with solutions.” As far as patients who reside in the 30 bed longterm care facility, Brannen said they have access to a registered nurse 24 hours a day, and if something of a more serious nature arises, the nurse can contact a physician and call for an ambulance if necessary.
“We do have an agreement to provide medical care to our residents.” Brannen did mention that those two physicians who operated the clinic previously did rounds for the long-term patients twice a week. Brannen said notification of the temporary closure has been posted on the medical clinic door and a notice was also included in the Town of Mundare

Town of Lamont to request peace officer services Michelle Pinon Editor
The Town of Lamont is hoping to enlist the services of a peace officer to address some of its traffic safety concerns. Chief Administrative Officer Sandi Maschmeyer told council during her report that she would like to send a letter of request to Lamont County asking for part-time services of its Peace Officer Steve Crosby. The idea would be to have services available several hours per month to focus on traffic safety. Maschmeyer said no overtime would be required and the town would receive 60 per cent of the total revenue in fines. Maschmeyer said the town had approached the county in the past, but pointed out that this proposal would not
interfere with the peace officer’s regular schedule. “I think this is a great idea. I hope the county is amenable,” stated Coun. Doug Pewarchuk, who recommended traffic control in the school zones during loading and unloading of students, and during lunch hour. Maschmeyer said the town would not have to pay extra for driving time since the peace officer is stationed out of the Lamont County administration building which is adjacent to the town office. Maschmeyer said the service would probably pay for itself. “I know there are policing limitations with the RCMP, and this would be good.” Coun. Kirk Perrin asked if the setvices would strictly be for traffic enforcement, and Maschmeyer replied,
yes. Coun. Perry Koroluk asked if traffic enforcement has come up as an issue before, and Maschmeyer said the town receives complaints usually every other day. “There’s a lot of public demand for
more policing, and we aren’t going to get that from Fort Saskatchewan unless there are significant changes,” noted Mayor Bill Skinner. He said the town can’t afford a full-time officer, but does require more
assistance and more visible presence in the community. Coun. Dave Taylor said that during the election campaign, increased security and police presence was the top concern of residents.
Maschmeyer said the peace office won’t replace the police, but will be able to address parking and speeding issues. She said she will report back to council at its next regular meeting.

Opinion Letter to the Editor: The system is rigged Dear Editor, Donald Trump was right about one thing: the system is rigged. How else could only six people be as wealthy as the poorest half of people in the entire world? How did so many more become so much richer than they deserve? The super-rich didn’t work that much harder than you and me. Generally, they work much, much less. This degree of inequality is not normal, by the way. In the 1960s and 1970s, when our middle class was strong and the family farm still flourishing, the federal government’s corporate income tax rate was 37 per cent. Over the years, Liberal and Conservative governments took turns dropping the corporate
tax rate, on the assumption that letting corporations do whatever they want also benefit us. Today, the corporate tax rate is less than half of what it was: 15 per cent. Not coincidentally, the middle class and the family farm are both in very big trouble. Canadian household debt has never been higher. Some young people predict they will never have a full-time job, let alone a pension. Meanwhile, the rich use banks and corporate shares to syphon wealth away from our communities into offshore tax havens. Money is only useful when it’s circulating, funding innovation and jobs: hoarding creates stagnation. How much Canadian money is sitting in these tax
havens doing nothing? At least 12 billion dollars. So why wouldn’t our government simply raise the corporate tax rate and shut down tax havens? Well, three former Canadian Prime Ministers are named in the Paradise Papers (a set of 13.4 million confidential electronic documents relating to offshore investments that were leaked to a German newspaper): Jean Chrétien, Paul Martin, and Brian Mulroney. Stephen Bronfman, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s adviser and close friend, a Liberal Party fundraiser credited with putting Trudeau into office, moved millions of dollars offshore for former
Liberal Party Senator Leo Kolber. There are a lot of Liberals in that list but, to be fair, the Liberals ordered a crackdown on tax cheats which has recouped $25 billion in lost tax revenue in the past two years. It was the Conservatives who started allowing Canadian businesses to set up shop in tax havens and receive profits taxfree. This is why people think politicians are all the same: often, they are. So let’s say we elect a government with gonads. First, the Toronto establishment (the Bronfman’s and the rest of that bunch) will go nuts. That will be fun. If they threaten to take their money and move elsewhere if we shut down legal tax havens,
we’ll shrug. They’re not our best friends. And, when the storms and wars and corruption get to them and they want to come back, they’ll pay their taxes. All of them. If we raise corporate taxes, Jason Kenney and the UCP will go completely berserk. Outfits like the Fraser Institute and the Canadian Taxpayers Association will trot out a bunch of research showing that, as sure as dawn follows darkness, any interference with profit-taking will be followed by economic armageddon. (Follow the funding trail and you’ll see who pays for that research). Anyway, It’s not true. Throughout history, rich people objected to ending slavery, minimum wage, equal pay for
women, women being being paid to work at all..generally, the things that actually benefitted the economy (and are better for everybody, not just them). But let’s say the worst happens and big corporations leave. Well, shucks, that creates a lot of opportunity for new investors, doesn’t it? Maybe there are millions of immigrants with billions of dollars who would love to work hard, pay reasonable taxes and revitalize the economy in a fair, safe country like Canada. What are the chances? So let’s tell those greedy, hoarding tax evaders that, if they want to live in a good country, they have to help the rest of us pay for it. Nora Abercrombie
Letter to the Editor: So many questions; so few answers Dear Editor, Why is the federal government in such a hurry to pass its marijuana legalization legislation when there are still so many questions and so few answers? Just this week, the Alberta Association of Chiefs of Police said that the legislation is coming too fast, stating that, “There is insufficient time to prepare the necessary legislative framework and regulations to ensure the public safety”. The Canadian Association of Police Chiefs warned that it will be “impossible” to be ready for the government’s target of legalizing marijuana by July 2018. Do these things not matter? Why is the Trudeau government not listening to their own Department of Health who warned
that youth under the age of 25, whose brains are still developing, should not be smoking marijuana? Why are they ignoring all the evidence that says more (not fewer) youth will smoke marijuana after legalization, and that car crashes due to impairment by marijuana will increase significantly? Why do they insist that organized crime will decrease after legalization and yet the experts say we are “deluding ourselves” if we think that legalizing marijuana will remove the criminal component? Canada is the first developed country in the world to legalize marijuana. The proposed legislative and regulatory framework is still in its infancy – not even halfbaked – and yet Trudeau stubbornly insists on
recklessly plunging ahead. Why? Are there conflicts of interest driving this agenda? How would we know if there
were? There is something extremely repugnant, foolish and suspicious about the government’s
Crystal Inverarity Ad Sales
mindless haste. It’s time to slow down, take a deep breath and a step back. Canadians deserve answers to their many
questions before we go any further. Betty Unger, Senator (Alberta)

RCMP warn public of CRA scam SUBMITTED ARTICLE Fort Saskatchewan RCMP are reminding residents to not fall for the Canada Revenue Agency scam where aggressive people demand gift card purchases. A Fort Saskatchewan resident received a phone call from a male identifying himself as a Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) employee on Nov. 15. The caller told the resident that he owed the CRA money and that if he did not pay, the CRA would have the RCMP arrest him. The resident was told he must purchase prepaid gift cards and provide the card number. The resident purchased $1,000 worth of prepaid gift cards and provided the information to the male over the phone. To date, the Fort Saskatchewan RCMP have received approximately twenty complaints from residents who are receiving these calls. Residents are reminded of the following guidelines: The CRA will not request payments by prepaid credit cards or Itunes gift cards. DON’T give any caller these payments or gift card numbers. · The RCMP will not make arrests for over-
due CRA fines. The CRA will not leave personal information on an answering machine. ·Never provide personal information through the Internet or by email. The CRA does not ask you to provide personal information by email. ·Be careful before you
click on links in any email you receive. Some criminals may be using a technique known as phishing to steal your personal information when you click on the link. ·Protect your social insurance number. Don’t use it as a piece of ID and never reveal it to anyone
unless you are certain the person asking for it is legally entitled to that information. ·Shred unwanted documents or store them in a secure place. Make sure that documents with your name and SIN are secure.

The Village of Chipman is looking to revise its garbage bylaw and councillors Toni Nygren and Morris Langevin were encouraged to provide their input. Chief Administrative Officer Pat Tompkow told council the water and sewer bylaws also need updating, and her intent is to incorporate all three together. One of the possible changes that was discussed was increasing garbage rates from $10-$15 per month. Tompkow said she compared the village’s garbage rates to several other municipalities in the region, and the Village of Chipman’s was the lowest. One example she cited was the Town of Lamont which charges $55 every two months. The Village of Chipman includes garbage rates with the water bills which are billed every two months. Tompkow also said the garbage truck had several costly repairs this past year as well. Coun. Nygren said she didn’t think the increase was huge amount, and Coun. Langevin agreed. The draft was accepted as information, and will be discussed again at council’s Dec. 11 meeting.
We are going to tell you something We hope you’ll never have to know. We’ll tell you how a heart can break And tears can constantly flow.

Just tell us she is happy In heaven up above She’s snuggled in an angels wings All wrapped in her parent’s love.

Gravel contract approved Michelle Pinon Editor
Gravel is a commodity which is in constant demand, and Lamont County recently shored up a three year supply from a local contractor. Council has awarded a three year contract to CLH Group Inc. based out of the Andrew area. Originally the company was to supply two years worth of gravel, but a letter from CLH Group Inc. President Cody Hrehorets, stated that the bid he submitted was structured for all three years and not two as indicated, and requested the third year be included. Council agreed to the
proposed amendment at its Nov. 14 meeting, and directed administration to proceed with the contract provided to CLH Group Inc. for supply of gravel for the next three years, (2018, 2019 and 2020) for the tendered price of $2,010,000 per year. As to particulars, Public Works Director Harold Hamilton stated in his Request for Decision: * To crush 110,000 tonnes plus-minus of Des .4-25 modified specification road crush gravel meeting Alberta Transportation specs. * To crush and supply 10,000 tonnes of Des. 416 specification for Lamont County’s dust
abatement program. * To crush and supply 20,0000 tonnes of Des. 420 base course aggregate for Lamont County’s road repair and construction programs. A conversion factor of 1.62 tonnes/m3 will be used. The stockpile is, as is where is basis, at a price of $14 per tonne for the 4-25 road crush, and 4-40 base course, $19 per tonne for the 2-16 dust abatement crush. Hamilton said CLH Group Inc. had placed the lowest overall tender, and will supply the municipality with gravel from its pit on the SE-1058-17-W4 within the boundaries of Smoky Lake County in 2018, 2019, and 2020.

From Where I Sit: Long Winter
By Hazel Anaka I donâ€™t know about you but Iâ€™m not exactly thrilled with this early, icy cold onset of winter. The consequences of the late, late, late 2016 harvest disabused anyone of the notion that good weather is coming and thereâ€™ll be time to get â€˜er done. So 2017 saw unseed-able flooded areas, acres of summer fallow, and the closing of the seeding window. Consequently for most, harvest 2017 was marginally better. It was likely because there was less acreage to harvest and/or no one was taking any chances waiting for better weather. There also seemed to be more concerted effort to get the bales hauled home
and stacked. So here we sit in late November with all the unfinished work blanketed in several inches of snow. And while we no longer have cattle we clearly remember how much more feed and bedding is required when the winter is long and frigid. We feel for anyone raising animals. The question for all of us is how to most successfully get through a long, hard winter. Many people suffer from SAD (seasonal affective disorder) and need daily light box therapy during even the shortest winters. Even those of us without a diagnosis are adversely affected by the dull dreary short hours of daylight. So better a light box than a prescription or a cocktail. Of course booking a holiday in a sunny locale also helps. The downside to that is the short duration and cost in American dollars. But every little bit helps. Some snowbirds with properties in Arizona or Palm Springs or Florida stay as long as they can without jeopardizing
their Canadian health and pension benefits. Theyâ€™ve developed a whole other lifeâ€Śjust with better temperatures. Or perhaps we could all adopt the Danish concept of hygge (pronounced roughly as huggae). Hygge is defined in the Oxford dictionary by â€œa quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a
feeling of contentment or wellbeing.â€? The climate and light levels in Denmark are very similar to ours in this part of Alberta so there are lessons to be learned there. The use of candles is a huge part of their strategy for creating cosiness. Fireplaces, rich comfort foods, long gatherings with friends and family, the use of textiles like scarves and blankets all
support this concept for good living. Most of us slip into comfy jammies and plush robes, burrow under down comforters or wool afghans, sip on hot toddies or spiced apple cider, light scented candles or the fireplace when the icy winds blow just because it feels so darn good. Where we havenâ€™t quite elevated it to the Danish art form is
in the slow, deliberate, conscious face-to-face with others. Spending time with others has its own benefits to mental and physical health. So whether you call it nesting or cocooning or hygge, itâ€™s worth considering some tiny behavioural changes to help one get through what is sure to be a long winter from where I sit.
The Town of Mundare hosted its annual Remembrance Day Ceremony on Saturday, November 11. A good crowd was on hand to pay tribute to the men and women who have served, and who continue to serve, the country.

10 - The Lamont Leader (Lamont, Alberta), Wednesday, November 22, 2017
Special meeting held to address sewer repairs Michelle Pinon Editor A special meeting of Lamont town council was held on Tuesday, November 7 to deal with
an emergency repair. Camera shots of the sewer trunk line that runs out of the town lift station showed that a portion of the line had
collapsed and would need to be repaired immediately, at a cost of more than $90,000. The funds to pay for the unplanned expenditure would come out of
money that had been previously budgeted for the West Lift Station project. Coun. Kirk Perrin made the motion: that
council authorizes town administration to proceed with the recommended repairs from Select Engineering to the sewer trunk line in the amount of $91,680 from
the capital budget for the West Lift Station project. The motion passed.

Sweetheart, you were my friend, my rock, my husband and confidant. You comforted me through a lot of trials and tribulations. Such a caring considerate, loving man who should never have had to leave during some of your happiest times. You were required to bear up under very hurtful abandonment by your family and friends. You are loved so much by your new family who recognized you as you were and not by what others wanted you to be. Your health failed you but you fought back, became braver and conquered your shyness and became an astute businessman and made so many new friends who are devastated by your accident and death. We miss you so much and many tears have been shed as we realize you truly have gone forever. I'll always love you, forever.
