Illegal donation returned by PC’s Local assoc. gives cheque back Michelle Pinon Editor

Three heads are better than one. Maybe four heads in the case of this team which was competing in the annual Lamont Mens Bonspiel during the past weekend.

Lamont council discusses capital projects Michelle Pinon Editor Lamont town council recently held a special meeting with its engineer Bob Hannewich to discuss capital projects. Of the five projects, two were approved in last year's budget. The Lagoon expansion, along with upgrades to the lane between 50 A Avenue and 54 Avenue were previously

approved. Sandi Maschmeyer, acting chief administrative officer, told council an environmental assessment is required for the site to ensure the lagoon expansion area is not classified as a wetland. "Alberta Environment requires this assessment prior to any development." As far as upgrades to the lane between 50 A Avenue and 54 Avenue

may require gas line and Telus cable relocation reported Maschmeyer. "We have contacted the utility companies and are working with them to determine costs for the possible relocates. Also as discussed, because of grade issues, this reconstruction to the lane may improve but not totally resolve the drainage issues that presently exist." Also included on the

list of capital projects are roadway upgrades for 50 Avenue between 48 and 44 Street, 51 Avenue between 54 and 48 Street, as well as water and waste water lines across Highway 15. Further discussions regarding the capital projects will continue in the future as the budget nears finalization in the coming months.

Findings and decisions of investigations of Elections Alberta were recently released with one of the infractions coming from Mackenzie County which made a donation of $525 to the Fort SaskatchewanVegreville PC C o n s t i t u e n c y Association. Glenn Hennig, President of the Fort Saskatchewan-Vegreville PC Constituency Association, clarified how the situation occurred. “Our constituency 2011 golf tournament committee immediately flagged the cheque from Mackenzie County and sent it back. “During the summer, Mackenzie County resent the cheque to us again. One of our volunteers,, (not connected with the golf tournament), received, deposited and dutifully recorded it with PC Alberta for the taxation receipt purposes. “When I heard of it I reviewed our 2011 golf tournament information and could not find that donation or the names of the individuals who attended the event listed as we sent the money back and I disputed it with Elections Alberta. But I was wrong. I was

certain we hadn’t chased that cheque, having initially sent it back.” Hennig also said he didn’t know why Mackenzie County reissued the cheque, but that it wasn’t the first time the association has returned cheques from prohibited corporations. In fact, according to documents obtained from Elections Alberta, during 2010 and 2011 there were 45 documented violations from prohibited corporations, including municipalities and educational institutions, under the Elections Act. The local PC association returned the second cheque, and as for Mackenzie County it was ordered to pay an administrative penalty of $262.50 for the infraction. That same municipality also paid an administrative penalty for a prohibited contribution of $125 made out to the Dunvegan-Central Peace PC Constituency Association. The county also paid the administrative penalty of $62.50 for that infraction. During 2010 and 2011 a grand total of $20,235 in prohibited contributions were made and a total of $6,596.25 in penalties doled out. Cont’d on Page 10

School principal brightens way for youth with cancer Michelle Pinon Editor

Sven Danzinger is sporting fluorescent pink hair these days. It’s not because he wants to make a fashion statement. It’s because he wants to throw his support behind a unique fundraiser called Hair Massacure. “This is the sixth or seventh time I’m participating in the Hair Massacure.� This year’s event in Edmonton will be held on Feb. 15th from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the West Edmonton Mall Ice Palace.

“As I learned more about pediatric cancer and how serious it is, I became more and more convinced that I needed to help the cause.� “ I originally got involved because my oldest son Matthew had participated the year before and after learning more about what the cause is, that is the charities that benefit, I wanted to show my support as well.� The fundraiser is in support of the Stollery Children’s Hospital (Pediatric Oncology research), the Northern Alberta Make-a-Wish Foundation, and the Ronald McDonald House of Northern, Central, and Southern Alberta.

“As I learned more about pediatric cancer and how serious it is, I became more and more convinced that I needed to help the cause. I am very blessed that I have not had to endure cancer, nor have my wife or children. However, we have very close friends where both the dad and eldest daughter had cancer. When the daughter was in the Stollery I was able to see first hand how much children are hurt by this terrible disease. It saddens me greatly when those who need our help the most, namely children, are affected by cancer. The treatments are often painful and can themselves have serious effects.� Danzinger, who is the principal of Bruderheim School, has been very touched by the support he has received to date. “My goal this year is $500, and I’m already part way there. I’ve had people I barely know walk up to me and give me money. I’ve had parents sponsor me and some staff as well.� He is also hoping that next year some Bruderheim students may be interested in participating in the annual fundraiser as well. “I did not announce that I was doing this ahead of time. When I taught at Westboro, three girls in my class participated as well, and two shaved their heads completely! Maybe if a few students participate, maybe we could even have a head shave right in the school.� According to the Hair Massacure website, other particpating cities will include: Grande Prairie, Fort McMurray, Red Deer and Calgary. “Our aim is to inspire every man, woman, and child to recognize the urgency of the decline in health in our youth and make necessary steps in making a difference.� Donations for Hair Massacure can be made either online or in person at the school office as Danzinger has donation sheets available.

The Lamont Leader (Lamont, Alberta), February 5, 2013 - 3

Many laughs with Lamont minor hockey Jazmine Inkster Student Reporter Comedians Sean Lecomber and Keith Saronski were only part of the engaging night put on by the Lamont Minor Hockey Association (LMHA) on Saturday February 2 at the Lamont Arena as the association raised funds to help offset some of the costs of operating hockey teams in the community. Throughout the night, guests were entertained both by the comedians and the dancing that took place long after the show was over. LMHA also organized a silent auction that took place during the night. The event was considered to be a great success, with organizers constantly having to bring out more tables and chairs to accommodate the growing crowd. "I would probably guess that there were between 240 - 260 people there" says an event organizer and member of the lamont minor hockey association, Angela Foulds, while adding that the definite numbers are still to be tallied. "The comedians were definitely well enjoyed by everyone that was there" All of the money raised from Saturdays event will

go back into helping lower costs for the parents and organizers of the hockey team, such as helping to pay for equipment, ice fees and the costs of refferees. Ice fees by themselves are $95/hour, and with six levels of teams each getting approximately three hours on the ice each week, ice fees for the association amount to approximately $6500 per month. "The main thing is helping to keep the registration fees as low as possible," adds Foulds. These fees can easily add up for parents who have more than one child in hockey year after year. Right now, registration fees vary from around $150 - $750 per child depending on what level of hockey they are playing. However without fundraising, fee's would skyrocket for parents. There are a total of 64 families involved in the LMHA, however not all of those families reside in Lamont. Some families will travel from Bruderheim and Andrew in order to play here. Although the full amount raised has not been disclosed as of yet, the funds raised are expected to be considered just as much of a success as the running of the event, with the 50/50 draw bringing more than $600 to the LMHA. No further fundraisers are planned for the LMHA.

A true hero In a time when celebrities are considered heroes for their outlandish behavior and trendy fashion apparel; it is clear youth of today need real life flesh and blood heroes in their everyday life who exemplify a strong work ethic, morals and values. I was reading with great interest an email that was sent by Ginny Grimsley, national print campaign manager for News and Experts out of Wesley Chapel, Florida. It was an article written by Jay Platt, a former US Marine and cancer survivor. He described a real hero as a person who is fighting cancer or some other chronic illness, and does so with great dignity and grace. Though they be in pain or discomfort, they somehow make those around them feel better, do better, and be better. Platt’s hero was Lance Armstrong. “As a cancer survivor myself, and someone who continues to battle the disease daily, he inspired me. He gave me strength when I felt like I had none. He even motivated me to challenge myself by attempting demanding physical feats, like hiking the 2,100 mile Appalachian Trail beginning to end. When I got tired and wanted to quit, I’d think to myself, ‘If Lance can do the things he does, I can do this, too.’ “ “So his recent revelations to Oprah Winfrey hit me like a 50 pound sledgehammer to the chest. When he admitted to lying about taking performance enhancing drugs, I felt like he had personally lied to me. And that’s when I knew that he is nothing more than a fake hero. Fake heroes have none of the qualities of a real hero. Rather, they lie, cheat, steal, and do whatever it takes to make themselves look good and heroic. Winning, to them, is the most important thing, and who they hurt in the process really doesn’t matter. All of which, sadly, describes Lance Armstrong.” Platt said Armstrong could have done the heroic thing and admit what he’d done and that steroids are not the way instead of feeling justified in doing it because everyone else was doing it. In an attempt at self preservation, one observation became clear. Greed and money were still at the heart of the matter. Disgusting. I am glad Platt shared his feelings and insights, and I would encourage you to go onto Platt’s website to see and hear about the work he is doing with the VHL (Von Hippel-Lindau) Family Alliance, a non-profit organization in the US and Canada which provides information, education and emotional support to victims of the rare genetic disease and their families. Now there is a true hero. Michelle Pinon

Critics challenged to run for public office As the longest serving elected official in Lamont County, I would like to voice my opinion in support of the council members, CAO and staff. I was very disappointed to hear that Kim Simpson will be leaving her position with the county to pursue other interests. Over the past few years I have been impressed with Kim’s efficient and professional work ethic, and her willingness to assist and provide information to both elected members and the public. As those who have worked in public service can attest, it is a difficult, and often thankless, task. I can say, firsthand, that I have never experienced any difficulty in

my dealings with the county. I have relied on the support from council members on the various committees we collaborate on, and have also appreciated the assistance received from the administrative and public works staff. These folks all work tirelessly to make the county better for its residents, and it is disheartening and demoralizing to read the constant negative comments against them. In my 30 years experience on Chipman council, I have had numerous occasions to seek assistance from the County, and I have never been told “No”. It cannot be overstated the importance of all municipalities working together,

sharing services, equipment and information, for the betterment of the entire electorate of the county. Pulling together instead of tearing apart will achieve much greater accomplishment for mutual benefit. Regrettably, it seems like most of the meanspirited negative comments in the local newspapers recently reflect the pointed personal biases of their authors. It is so much easier to criticize the folks doing the job than to actually pitch in and offer assistance and support. I do have a challenge for you all though – Nomination Day is September 23, 2013, and the municipal election is October 21. Pull yourself

After all, you have all the expertise, so why not share it with the rest of us?

Zyla swept away by the fun and comraderie of the sport Michelle Pinon Editor Once a rink rat; always a rink rat. That saying definitely holds true for avid curler Colin Zyla. Proof was in the pudding last Wednesday evening when Zyla was spotted calling the shots for his team during mixed curling night at the Mundare Recreation Centre and Curling Club. The temperature inside the facility felt warmer than the outside temperature of minus 30 degrees celsius. It just goes to show that you can’t keep the die hard curlers away from the game. There was plenty of joking and lots of friendly smiles as curlers conversed in between shots. It’s that camaraderie that Zyla loves most, and his desire to keep the sport alive and well in the small community with a big heart. Zyla, who grew up in the community, was first introduced to the sport by his parents. “I spent a lot

These gents were sweeping hard.

of time here.” In junior high he began playing through the school and hasn’t put his broom down since.

“I really enjoyed curling. It was always a good time.” As icemaker and president of the local club, Zyla also enjoys watching others have a good time. While the sport of curling has grown in popularity across the country; locally, the club is just managing to hold its own in terms of numbers. Zyla is encouraged by having local youth involved in curling through the physical education program at Mundare and Andrew Schools. Currently the club has 48 members. There are 12 teams who play against each other once a week at the recreation centre for fun, exercise, and socializing between the months of November and March. Every year the club hosts three bonspiels (mixed, ladies, and mens) as well as a New Years Dance. Zyla, who has been club president off and on for the past eight years has put his heart and soul into keeping the sport viable in the community, and has

proven over and over again that he is more than willing to lay it all on the line.

Local volunteers pass on their love of archery Michelle Pinon Editor

“The kids love to learn,� says Murray Laronde, who loves teaching them the sport of archery along with fellow instructor Justin Kaban. Every Thursday evening, the duo can be seen in the gymnasium of Bruderheim School, passing on their skills to youth and adults alike. “The goal of the fish and game is to keep archery and the sport alive,� adds Laronde, who began teaming up with Kaban last year to offer the lessons. While response to the program has been good, Laronde says many clubs are struggling because of a lack of volunteers. The shortage of volunteers just does-

n’t make sense to Laronde. “We have children enrolled in things, yet, volunteers are limited. My way of thinking is that someone taught me, and now it is my turn to pass it on.� He, too, is hoping more public awareness in the communities will attract more volunteers. “We have some great sponsors out there, and I thank them very much, and I support them back; and if this article creates one more volunteer for any sport, then we have done the community good.� While everyone is welcome to come and see what archery is all about, participants must be in Grade 4 or higher as required under the school division policy. Both Laronde and Kaban struggle with this policy, but say they must abide by it. However, they both are hoping another venue that would not restrict the ages of participants will become available in the future. The only stipulation organizers require is that participants sign a waiver and take out an annual family membership with either fish and game association for a nominal fee of $35.

Successful Mens Bonspiel sweeps through Lamont Annual homecoming sporting event attracts 29 teams and 116 avid curlers to the Lamont Curling Club MICHELLE PINON PHOTOS

It was an extremely busy weekend at the Lamont Curling Club as members hosted the annual Mens Bonspiel. A total of 29 teams competed in the three day event which pitted inexperienced and experience, young and old curlers against each other. There was plenty of comraderie amongst the players, many of whom reside in the county. For some it was a homecoming of sorts, as they met up with former classmates, teammates, friends and neighbours. A good time was had by all, and the fundraiser was an ideal kickoff to the season which will culminate with the Last Chance Bonspiel.

Province introduces 511 Alberta Safer travel just a phone call or click away for residents

PHOTO COURTESY BRUDERHEIM SCHOOL

These youngsters couldn’t help but smile as they were chillin during the annual Beach Day Bash last Friday afternoon. There were plenty of fun and games, including a beach volleyball game which featured Grade 6 students against the staff. The experience proved too much, and the staff beat the students in both games. Principal Sven Danzinger said it was a great day and a nice way to beat the winter blues.

Review should be done for all political parties, says assoc.president Cont’d from Page 1 Hennig carefully pointed out that it is the prohibited corporations that are at fault for writing cheques in the first place. “Constituency associations of all parties are run by volunteers, not all with detailed knowledge of election finance rules. However, the CEO’s and CFO’s, directors, finance people, etc. of the prohibited corporations are all professionals. They know better.” He went onto state that: “It is a terrible use of taxpayers funds, regardless of laws, to support political parties, any party. These are public funds, used for the public good. All political parties should be supported by individuals or privately financed and owned organizations. Individually people can choose who to support.” Hennig also commented on Alberta’s chief electoral officer Brian Fjeldheim. I was disappointed in his approach to this issue. It would have put a wholly different public discussion on this issue had Mr. Fjeldheim simply asked all partys’ constituency associations to assist him in his investigations and enforcement of the law, with respect to prohibited corporations. that would have been seen to be fair and impartial to all, a status he should display at all times. “We at Fort Saskatchewan/Vegreville will assist Mr. Fjeldheim now and in the future with this or any other election law matter. All he has to do is ask.” Fort Saskatchewan-Vegreville MLA Jacquie Fenske said that throughout the election campaign last spring that it was apparent that there was a need to review the Elections Act. “I can say that this PC Government introduced new election’s legislation (Local Authorities Election Act - Bill 7) and it was one of the 10 bills passed this fall.”

Improved, up-to-date road information is a click or a phone call away, with the launch of the first phase of the new 511 Alberta traveller information service. “Albertans have told us they want fast, simple access to the information they need, and that’s exactly what 511 Alberta provides,” said Ric McIver, Minister of Transportation. “511 Alberta will help you better plan your trips and make our highways safer, especially during the winter months.” Travellers will now have access to more than 100 highway cameras through the new mobile-friendly website at www.511.alberta.ca.&nbsp Interactive maps link to current information on highway conditions, weather information, construction updates, incident reports such as detours and closures, ferry crossing times, national/provincial parks information, and border crossing wait times. Similar information is available via phone by calling 5-1-1 toll-free from anywhere within Alberta. For the first time, callers have the option of using touch tone or voice command to obtain

information. A new Twitter feed, @511Alberta will also provide timely updates. 511 Alberta replaces the current AMA Road Reports, which had been operated in various formats by the Alberta Motor Association (AMA) since 1927, using data supplied by the Alberta government. “AMA and the Government of Alberta have enjoyed a proud history of working together to make our roads safer for Alberta families,” said Don Smitten, AMA president. “AMA supports the introduction of the 511 service and we’ll continue to partner with the government to ensure our members and Albertans have access to timely and relevant traveller information. We look forward to continuing to work together to enhance the safety of travellers.” The launch represents the first phase of the 511 Alberta service. Future phases may include more features and information to respond to travellers’ evolving needs.

IN MEMORIAM

When we saw you sleeping so peaceful, free from pain, We could not wish you back to suffer that again. ~Always remembered and missed by Lorraine, Cathy, Jordy, Jessica, David, Patricia, Cole and Sheldon. 3p ________________________
