A water main break on main street in Lamont turned into a major clean up job for crews who worked throughout the weekend to fix the problem. Crews were still working on Monday to reopen the stretch of 50 Ave in front of the high school.

Water main break causes delays and detours Town of Lamont public works employees put in overtime to clear roads and prevent further damage Jazmine Inkster Student Reporter

Town of Lamont Public works were kept busy over this weekend with a water main break reported on Friday. The call was made to public works at 8:30 on Friday morning with reports of a leak. The Town of Lamont enlisted the services of Nu Edge Construction to help public works with getting the work done. 50 Ave is still closed off to drivers due to equip-

ment still being on the road, however, according to town foreman Richard Chernyk the road should be back open hopefully by the end of Monday. "I've just made arrangements to have someone come in to repack and clay the roads" explains Chernyk. However, he says it is difficult to locate dry clay at the moment. As of now, everything is back to normal, with the pipes now at 100% capacity, all the town is waiting on is the reopen-

ing of the road, and the removal of the equipment so drivers do not have to take detours to get downtown. There has been no flooding of houses, and no property damage to the town or residents. However, water was turned off for two hours to the entire town on Friday night from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. "With the heavy frost, and the winter we had, we couldn't isolate the pipe shut off" According to Chernyk,

the piece that had broken was the service saddle, which usually has a 30 to 40 year span. It was the decay of this piece that had caused all of the problems with the pipes. Because of the piece’s life span, Chernyk says the only thing they can do is fix it as the time comes. Chernyk explained that although this was considered to be a water main break, it was not a broken pipe. At press time, no damage estimates were available to be released.

Lamont Mayor sees bright future for the community Bill Skinner wants to put the focus on infrastructure, economic growth and development Michelle Pinon Editor

While it's good to take a look at the past, it's the future Lamont Mayor Bill Skinner wants to focus on. Lamont's top elected official says he will be centring his attention on infrastructure and economic development in 2013. "My focus is on retaining and attracting new businesses." Part of that strategy has included the lowering of development fees to stay competitive. Skinner says an added bonus for the town has been the contracting of services of economic development officer Laraine Stuart on an as needed basis during the past year. He is also looking forward to working with the

new regional economic director who will represent the towns and villages in Lamont County. Skinner says council's decision to proceed with water and sewer lines across Highway 15 was a necessary move in order for development of the Heartland Hotel to proceed. The hotel is expected to open this July. The town is also planning to expand its sewage

Environmental testing was recently completed at the lagoon, and a report is expected to come before council in the coming month. "We've done a lot to position ourselves for growth and managed growth," adds Skinner. The other part of the action plan is the continuation of the street light project on main street. As well, a parks and recreation committee has also been struck to study parks and activities in the community. On the communications front, money has been set aside in the 2013 budget for the hiring of a part-time communications specialist.

Chipman Firefighters host annual fundraising gala Michelle Pinon Editor

Being a firefighter takes a lot of hard work; but it’s also a lot of fun at the same time, says Mike

Seipert, deputy fire chief of the Chipman Fire Department. He has been on call as a volunteer with the department for the past eight years, and is always looking forward

to learning new things and helping people out. “I enjoy physically helping others out and that internal feeling that I’ve done good and can see that result.”

Seipert says you have to plan for the worst and do your best to work things out. “There are so many ways of looking at things,” he adds. Simply put: “You have to be prepared for the unexpect-

ed.” It sounds like an impossible order, but one Seipert gladly carries out. Firefighting is in his blood as both his parents and sister have served as firefighters. “I decided to join after I moved back to the area.” It’s also interesting that Seipert’s wife Tamara also serves on the department. He’s hoping the upcoming firefighters ball will help raise public awareness for much needed extrication equipment and more volunteers. With changing technology, Seipert says they need to change out equipment in order to do a more efficient job when it comes to extricating drivers and passengers in newer model automobiles. He explains that the posts which they cut and pry apart are made from a different type of material that requires differ-

ent cutters. There is also the ongoing need for new pumps and hoses. The intent is to set aside between $60,000 and $80,000 over the next couple of years to pay for

the upgrades and new equipment. During the firefighters ball there will be a silent and live auction to help raise money for those initiatives.


There will be a banquet, presentations, and dance over the course of the fulfilled gala. Tickets are $30 each and can be purchased from Seipert or Sharisse Rasmussen.

The Lamont Leader (Lamont, Alberta), February 12, 2013- 3

Exemplary efforts earn Hauch Queen’s Award Editor

Karl Hauch is one in a million; and he was recently singled out to receive the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Award. Fort Saskatchewan-Vegreville MLA Jacquie Fenske had the honour of presenting the award to Hauch last Wednesday evening in Bruderheim. “Karl is a leader not only in his town, but also his church, the company he works for and the region,” said Fenske of Bruderheim’s mayor. “Karl will tell you it is a team effort and yes, it is, but every team needs a leader to inspire, to bring out the strengths in each individual of the team and to have the confidence to allow these team members to utilize their strengths for the advancement of the team’s cause. Karl is such a leader.” The prestigious award was bestowed upon Hauch by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM). In a statement from FCM President Karen Liebovici, she said: “FCM chose you to receive this distinction for your exemplary efforts to make your community a great place to live. It recognizes the important role municipalities and leaders play in ensuring our prosperity and high quality of life.” Liebovici added: “We sincerely appreciate your municipality’s affiiliation with FCM, and its support of strong communities and good government. In partnership with other local leaders, and with federal, provincial and territorial governments, your municipality is helping to build a safer, stronger and

more properous future for your community and all Canadians.” Hauch said he was “greatly surprised” to be presented with the award at a council meeting. “I thought it was coming in the mail. It was a very pleasant surprise to share this award ceremony with my family and council members and town staff!

He went onto say: “This definitely was a team award for all of council and town staff to be proud of our accomplishments. Of course, it goes almost without saying my family needs to get a lot of credit, for I would not accomplish much without their support.”

Fort Saskatchewan-Vegreville MLA Jacquie Fenske presented Bruderheim Mayor Karl Hauch (standing next to her) the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Award on behalf of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities on Feb. 6th. Gathered by his side are wife Bonnie, and children Sarah, Caleb and Lisa (Plooy) Hauch.

Working together The Mayor of Chipman, Jim Palmer’s message in the Lamont Leader has inspired this editorial. His words ring true for our community as well. Lamont County works closely with our community on many levels and the more we work together the more opportunity to work for the common good of all. This is evidenced by the start-up of the recently announced Committee to work on issues of Oil & Gas Exploration and Transportation issues. Every Town in Lamont County benefits from the good working relationships they have formed with the good, hardworking people serving on the Lamont County Council. I find the more we work to build each other up to work together, we all win. We will all lose when we work to tear down our relationships. I would be extremely supportive of any folks who want to get involved in constructively working to improve our lot in life. Mayor Palmer encouraged folks to get involved in the election process, I certainly echo his statements as too often we see folks wanting changes but are unable or are unwilling to give of themselves’ to help make a difference. These paragraphs below are excerpts from previous submissions to the Lamont Leader. These comments still ring true and can be applied to personal relationships not just municipality’s relationships. It inspires me to see people give of their time for the benefit of others in their community. Communities are only as strong as the giving spirit of the people living there. Volunteering is a way to bring yourself closer to your neighbours, strengthen your community, and provide some deeper meaning in your life. I encourage everyone in our Lamont County region to find as many ways as you can to get involved and contribute to the efforts of the community groups in your area. I trust you will find it a rewarding and fulfilling experience. For any community to be successful in this kind of a changing world, we need to realize that, it is not just to our advantage to work together with our neighbours, it is a necessity for our future sustainability. Collaboration is not easy. It requires sacrifice, patience, and hard work, but it can make us all stronger in the long run. I encourage everyone to find ways to build bridges across municipal boundaries as well as other relationships to create mutually beneficial connections. If we all work together, we can do anything. There is no doubt we are better working together than we are working to tear apart! Sincerely, Town of Bruderheim – Mayor Karl Hauch

Letter to the editor

Environmental protection needed now The federal minister for the Environment, Peter Kent, recently lamented the lack of good news he and his department are receiving in the media. One has to wonder where this Conservative Minister has been for the last few years. Just look at his record. Under Minister Kent’s watch, the Conservatives have gutted environmental protection, eviscerated the Fisheries Act, dismantled protection of Canada’s lakes and rivers, and drastically reduced the budget of Parks Canada. With their majority, the Conservatives have rammed through Parliament two omnibus budget bills to avoid scrutiny of the elimination of most federal environmental assessments and the removal of protection for fish habitat, paving the road for resource development with no oversight or consultation with Aboriginal Peoples and stakeholders. After seven years of stalling and polarizing the debate, serious measures to reduce carbon emissions and fight climate change have gone nowhere. Furthermore, the Conservatives have reduced our capacity to monitor polluters and the ability to make evidence based decisions by cutting hundreds of sci-

entists at Environment Canada. They have also cut Canada’s ozone monitoring and research program and are closing the worldrenowned facility for freshwater research and education, the Experimental Lakes Area. Why does Mr. Kent think this is all good news? Because the Conservative Party thinks protecting the environment hurts the economy. They’re wrong. Resource development can be responsible and can still create jobs while protecting the environment. Proper environmental assessments not only ensure that development does not harm our planet, but they ensure that it has a social license to proceed. Without the proper approvals, protests and legal challenges will dog projects for years and create expensive uncertainty for business plans. Instead of digging his head in the sand, Minister Kent should be restoring oversight and doing his job to fight climate change and protect Canada’s environment. Now that would be great news! Yours sincerely, Kirsty Duncan, MP

Valentines Day a time to cherish loved ones Young and old celebrate the loves of their lives Jazmine Inkster Student Reporter Valentines Day has always been directed at the young couples, the up and coming, and the thought of honouring your sweetheart. However, it is important to cherish those who are the symbol of love for life. Such is the case with Lamont couples Anne and John Rohatyinski, as well as Kay Poloway and her late husband Peter Poloway. Both of these couples were and are married for 48 years, and enjoyed every

Through the years that they have been together, the couple has made many happy memories, although they say it is difficult to pin it down to one favourite in particular. A few of their favourite memories include the places they have travelled together. “Reno, Hawaii, eastern Canada,” lists John. “We also have good memories of Carribean cruises with good friends” adds Anne.“All our memories are good memories” Poloway is also a very strong believer in family relations when it comes to her and her husband’s marriage. “You have to look at the family, you’re not The late Pete Poloway and his wife Kay smile for just marrying [them], you’re marrying [their] family their official wedding portrait too.” adding that it also takes a lot of trust to keep things going smoothly.

Newcomer pays tribute to fire department members Steve Brown encourages residents to take off their hats for these modern day lifesaving rangers Michelle Pinon Editor

Steve Brown is the kind of guy who would give you the shirt off his back, the gloves on his hands or the jacket he’s wearing. The Lamont resident is a hero, but it’s a term he uses to describe the men and women who volunteer alongside him with the Lamont Fire Department.

“I have met some pretty fine people since joining the Lamont Fire Department,” says Brown. Since moving to the community last March he has enjoyed his time with the brigade. “I have met some pretty fine people since joining the Lamont Fire Department, a lot of people from all walks of life. It’s a real honour to give something back to this small communi-

ty, and I would like to say it is quite inspiring to see the people of Lamont and how they really get behind their fire service. Inspired by his real life heros, Brown wrote a poem to convey his heartfelt message, and hopes it will inspire others to join the ranks. “I hope this little poem will reach some people to come out and look at joining up with us, and don’t worry what you don’t know, we all learn from each other,” added Brown. He has found his time to be most enjoyable, and says it’s very gratifying to be able to give back to the community and all of its citizens.” Brown, first began firefighting when he lived in New Zealand back in 2007. He served for three years with the Te Puke Fire Department before moving to Canada. His poem Little Town Heros was written in 2009, and was slightly modified to include Lamont last year. “Chief John Helton is a very decent man, always smiling and easy to talk with, as are the rest of the guys and gals that make up this irreplaceable force. Ladies and gentlemen, it is an honour to serve with you, I hope to be a member for many years to come.

Little Town Heros They’re sisters and brothers Fathers and mothers And they don’t brag or boast About what they do for others They come from all walks White collars and blue Giving up their own time To help me and you You may not know them You may call them strangers But they’ll fight for your life In spite of the dangers

At work rest or play Or even sleeping in bed When the call comes in To the station they head To save a trapped soul Or to beat back the flames Our little town heros Without heros names They don’t like to lose Sadly sometimes they do But they band together To quietly get through They don’t do it for money For glory or fame

They do it for us Without knowing our name So when your life hits panic And you really need aid They’re rushing to help you Lamont’s volunteer fire brigade You may not know them You may call them strangers But take off your hat To these modern day rangers By Steve Brown

Andrew Atom Aces win gold Hockey team shines in Bentley to capture first place Submitted by Melahna Sidor Members of the Andrew Atom Aces participated in an eight team tournament in Bentley on Feb.4th which saw the players take home the gold. We faced Edson, beating them 15-0 and two Red Deer teams which the kids beat out by scores of 11-0 and 16-1. The final on Sunday had our kids up against some stiff competition. The team, the Bentley

Canucks led early in the first as our team struggled to get the puck out of their own zone. But with some incredible passing, back checking, and goaltending, our kids managed to pull ahead 7-4 as the second period ended. Having such a small numbers team as we do, you could see our boys were beyond tired. They knew they had to work hard to win. And somehow, somewhere they got a burst of energy and came out roaring in the

third with seven more goals to win the hardware by a score of 14-4. They worked hard and it showed. Congratulations to coaching staff Wes Sidor and Brent Sharun and teammates Devon Hamaliuk, Jeff Fedorvich, Breck Hrehorets, Cody Sharun, Carter Sidor, Colby Yaremie, Brit McAmmond, Carson Slasynski and Kyle Fesyk.

Busy mom spreading the news to local families Macaroni Kid electronic newsletter now reaching out to Lamont County residents Michelle Pinon Editor

Macaroni. Specifically, Macaroni Kid, is a website and e-newsletter that highlights things to do and see as a family in Edmonton and surrounding area. “As a mom in Fort Saskatchewan, I know how difficult it has been to keep track of the fun and enriching events and activities available for kids. I’m really excited to share Macaroni Kid with the families that are in Lamont County,” says publisher Denise Stacey. Macaroni Kid News covers the gamut of classes, shows, events as well as things to do at home, including cooking projects, drop in programs, arts and crafts as well as book reviews. “In addition to events in Fort Saskatchewan and Sherwood Park, we’ll be bringing reviews and insights about events in activities in Edmonton as well as featuring exciting ideas for family road trips and travel,” added Stacey, who is the proud mother of four children, all under the age of six. “The reason why I decided to join the Macaroni Kid family and become a publisher mom was because the weekend would always roll around and I was wondering what to do with my kids. “I am also part of a moms group on Facebook, and the same question was always being asked: What is there to do out there with the kids? I also heard a

lot of: I didn’t know about that class, event, activity! So I thought why not help my fellow mommies out and be a one stop shop.” Since last November Stacey has had more than 115 subscribe to the free e-newsletter with new subscribers signing up every week. “It is my goal to reach 1,000 subscribers by November 2013.” Another goal of hers is to help put small businesses, especially the ones run by moms on the map with feature articles and advertising through the Macaroni Kid newsletter. She spends on average a couple of hours a day, four to five days a week to check library and town websites, Kijiji, and newspapers for happenings. “Currently I am running two giveaways in the Macaroni Kid newsletter and will be starting another in March. I have also started looking into summer camps, and I have started a summer camp guide, as some camps have registrations already open or will be opening up by March 1st.” Stacey first learned about Macaroni Kid from an elementary school friend that she has kept in touch with over the past couple of years. “When I met her in November of last year for lunch, I asked her to explain more of it to me as she always seemed to be doing neat things with her kids.” Macaroni Kid was

started by two moms in New York who came up with an idea to publish a newsletter for moms and their families. “When I contacted the head office in New York to bring

Macaroni Kid to Alberta (there is also a Macaroni Kid in Ontario and B.C.), the area I was assigned to publish for was northeast Edmonton, Sherwood Park, Fort

Saskatchewan, Lamont, Bon Accord, Gibbons and all the smaller areas found in between.” As the Macaroni Kid slogan goes: entertain, stimulate, and exhaust

your kids. Stacey welcomes any and all suggestions, and can be contacted via email at:

Denise Stacey now loves to spend the weekends doing activities with her four children and husband.

Early childhood development on track in Flagstaff and Beaver Leslie Cholowsky Editor The Community Press

There are 2,000 days from conception to age five, and early childhood development studies have shown that this is a key time for children to develop critical skills that will not only affect their lives, but which will also contribute to the development of a healthier, more engaged and productive society. “Every child deserves to grow up in a safe, nurturing, and stimulating environment,” says Cherise Backen, community coordinator for the Flagstaff Beaver Early Childhood Coalition. The coalition was formed in 2011, to promote the healthy development of children 0-five years of age in Flagstaff and Beaver counties, funded by provincial seed grants which extend to November 2013. After collecting information from every community in Alberta, as part of the Government

of Alberta’s Early Childhood Development Mapping Initiative, and through surveys distributed by the coalition, the group has released the figures for Flagstaff and Beaver, and they look very good. The information was collected using Early D e v e l o p m e n t Instrument surveys, recognized and used across Canada and Internationally, in the Flagstaff Beaver area, which includes all of Flagstaff County and all of Beaver County with the exception of Tofield. The surveys looked at five areas of childhood development, being social competence; physical health and wellbeing; emotional maturity; language and thinking skills; and communication and general knowledge. As the study was part of a provincial initiative, it is possible to compare results to a provincial average. Questionnaires from the Flagstaff-Beaver area numbered 112, and results show that kinder-

garten children in the area are exceeding provincial averages in the areas of social competence; physical health and well-being; emotional maturity; and communication skills and general knowledge, and within three percentage points of the Alberta average for language and thinking skills. While our area’s results are favourable when compared to provincial averages, the report still showed that 24.11 per cent of those surveyed were experiencing difficulty or great difficulty in one or more areas of development. “Part of our job as a coalition is to take a look at these results and figure out how we can support healthy early childhood development, improve our weaknesses, and build on our successes,” Backen says. To that end, the group has been busy working on some new projects. See COALITION P3 Illustration Colour Key • Developing Appropriately • Experiencing Difficulty • Experiencing Great Difficulty

The Lamont Leader (Lamont, Alberta), February 12, 2013- 11


Coalition Continued from EXTRA! P1

The coalition has also created a community resource directory for families to use, and are planning a number of workshops aimed at childhood development, including a “Kids Stress Too” workshop scheduled for March, and a play workshop this fall. Studies show that communities influence development, that families, the community, and society all influence early brain development. The quality of these environments can impact everything from health to success at school and work, relationships, and a persons’ overall sense of well-being. The coalition, and Backen, have been engaged by the province to help the communities identify assets that relate to early childhood development, but another part of their job is to educate communities and residents who have both


direct and indirect influences on the development of children in the community. The concept of community influencing development requires that community members buy into and understand the role they play. The coalition resources are also working at building a substantial resource for parents concerned with their children’s development. As part of literacy week this past January, Backen posted a new suggestion every day on the group’s Facebook page. She posted tips and hints for parents on fact sheets called ‘An ABC for Parents,’ which give tips on simple and fun ways to encourage and develop growth in young children, developed by the Centre for Family Literacy. According to the Centre for Family Literacy, four out of 10 Albertans struggle with literacy, and as a group, they are committed to helping build, develop,

and improve literacy in Alberta. Family Literacy is not just about reading and writing. The Centre stresses that family literacy is about developing stronger relationships between parents and their children and getting parents involved in their children's education. It is about building stronger families and healthy communities. It is a given, then, that parents who are involved in family literacy programs are also improving their own literacy skills, while supporting the literacy development of their children. The coalition is also a sponsor of the Family Day unplugged initiative, urging families to interact for at least one day.

The Lamont Leader (Lamont, Alberta), February 12, 2013- 13

Mundare Novice Vipers win silver Michelle Pinon Editor Emotions and adrenaline were sky high during the Mundare Novice Vipers championship game against the St. Albert Talons Feb. 10. Highflying action from end to end; and start to finish. This did not disappoint fans who came to cheer on their teams during the final game of the round robin noviceinitiation tournament. St. Albert got on the scoreboard first, just a few minutes into the game. Mundare answered the call and scored two goals late in the first period to forge ahead 3 -1. Then St. Albert rebounded, and scored a shorthanded goal near the end the second period to make it 3 - 2 for the home team. In the dying seconds of the second period the Vipers scored again to pull ahead 4 - 2.

The final 20 minutes proved to be just as exciting as the Talons scored twice late in the period to tie the game 4 - 4. Sudden death overtime, five-on-five, began. Everyone was on the edge of their seats or standing with high anxiety and anticipation. The noise was deafening, and continued until t h e Ta l o n s scored with less than two minutes remaining in overtime to win. The host team was very gracious in defeat, and exemplified outstanding sportsmanship. It was a heartbreaking loss, but all of the players played their hearts out. Vipers #15 KazLynn McLellan was presented with the Heart and Hustle Award, while goaltender #33 Dylan Batog earned the Most Valuable Player Award.

This van was spotted tipped on its roof just off of Highway 15 between Bruderheim and Lamont early Sunday morning. There were several mishaps involving vehicles Saturday as strong winds created intense blowing snow and reduced visibility. Patches of thick, hard packed drifts, offset by slush created hazardous road conditions in Lamont County.
