Former Lamont CAO Tom Miller charged Michelle Pinon Editor

A week ago Tom Miller was arrested by RCMP officers in Fort Saskatchewan and charged with forgery and counselling an offence to commit fraud. “On May 28, 2013, RCMP officers in Fort Saskatchewan arrested Thomas Miller, former chief administrative officer for the Town of Lamont as a result of an ongoing investigation. He was arrested outside a local business in Fort Saskatchewan by Fort Saskatchewan RCMP members.” In the statement released by “K” Division, it said Thomas Miller has been charged with:

*Forgery section 3661(1)CC * Utter a forged document - section 368CC *Counselling an offense to forge document - not committed - section 464CC. *Counselling an offence to commit fraud - not committed - section 464CC “Following a Judicial Interim Release (JIR) hearing, Thomas Miller was released to appear in Fort Saskatchewan Provincial Court on June 6, 2013.” The only comment Mayor Bill Skinner would make following Tuesday’s town council meeting was that the town was made aware of Miller’s arrest by RCMP. Later in the week, Skinner issued this

response: “We are aware of the recent arrest of Mr. Miller. If charges against Mr. Miller are proven in a court of law, our legal representation would be the ones to advise us on how this may affect the other ongoing legal issues.” The RCMP press release also stated: “The incident was first reported in 2008. The file later on re-opened, upon further evidence which led to the arrest and charges against Miller.” The “incident” was first reported by Quebec based developer Gilles Filatreault, who alleged Miller attempted to negotiate kickbacks on a housing deal. Filatreault, in pursuit of the truth and further evidence, had journalists

secretly record and videotape a conversation between Miller and himself in the fall of 2012. After Filatreault’s under cover operation in co-ordination with a Star report and a RadioCanada producer who were sitting at a nearby table in a restaurant recording the conversation, Miller was confronted in a parking lot shortly after the meeting. Miller refused to answer questions about the recorded conversations. Shortly after that incident, Filatreault presented the evidence to Fort Saskatchewan RCMP, who in turn, turned over the evidence to “K” Division for further investigation. On June 29, 2010 a Statement of Claim was

filed by Jabneel Development Inc. and Construction Jabneel Inc. against the Town of Lamont and Tom Miller. Damages and/or judgement in the amount of $28,523,550; punitive damages in the amount of $500,000; an order directing the plaintiffs’ construction bond in the principal amount of $406,500 be returned forthwith. On Sept. 3, 2010, the Town of Lamont and Tom Miller filed a Statement of Claim denying each and every allegation, saying Miller “acted diligently and in good faith and conducted himself appropriately” through the discharge of his duties. Miller was dismissed of his duties by members

of town council in December of 2011. While elected officials refused to disclose the amount of money to pay out the rest of Miller’s contract, an auditors report stated a final payment to Miller was made in the amount of $341,782. The report, dated March 19, 2012, also stated the payment was over and above Miller’s regular salary of $96,904 and benefits and allowances of $18,112 to equal $115,016. Jabneel’s lawsuit and the town’s countersuit have yet to be heard in a court of law.

Local residents react to Miller’s arrest Jazmine Inkser Student Reporter

Those who the Lamont Leader spoke to believed that the arrest of Miller was all in all an expected outcome, and was deserved considering the actions he had allegedly taken. Multiple people were of the opinion that it is sad that something like this was to happen in a small town like this, but say that this apparent corruption is something that happens everywhere. “It’s tragic that Lamont is associated

with this sort of scandal” says local business owner Carmen Uva, who believes that it was unfortunate that it took so long for citizens to be made aware. “I believe the people of Lamont would not have had anything to do with it had they known,” Uva adds. Also commenting was Flower Pot owner Jean Stacey, who says she had seen it on CBC news, so it overall wasn’t surprising. Lil’ Rascals owner Kristy Wipf says that she had originally heard the news on Wednesday through the

traffic that came through the shop that day. “Somebody mentioned it,” she explains. “If somebody does something wrong, they deserve to pay for it” adds Wipf. In general, the word on the street is that Miller is deserving of his arrest, and it is really not a very big surprise to the citizens we had spoken to. Though he has not been charged, he still deserves his day in court, and has not yet been convicted of any wrong-doings.

Lamont town council reviews Municipal Inspection report recommendations Michelle Pinon Editor

Lamont town council held a special meeting May 28 to review the recommendations contained in the Municipal Inspections report that were made public a couple of weeks ago. Council went over each of the recommendations, and will continue to draft a council and committees meeting procedures bylaw in the coming months. Council has adopted changes to its agenda packages, which now include all reports (except those intended to be discussed in-camera) that are available on the town’s website as well as

during council meetings to those in attendance. While council is unable to remove the elevated extension of the front panel of the council desk, councillors are speaking loud and clear and motions are being restated for the benefit of people in the visitor’s gallery. While it is not possible to separate the panels for the CAO and recording secretary, there are name plates affixed to the panels so members of the public can distinguish them from the members of council. The town is also looking into the possibility of installing a public address system, and is currently looking into quotes from companies.

“Discussions, motions, debates, and votes related to matters brought before council by a delegation be dealt with immediately following the delegation’s presentation to council, rather than at a later point in the meeting.” Council decided that when and if possible, this recommendation would be completed. The use of audio or visual recording devices is an item that is pending. The use of camera lights or flashes may be restricted or prohibited, and will be determined at a later date. Council also decided that every member of council, following every general election, participate in training or orien-

tation. The same goes for members of municipal planning commission, subdivision and development appeal board, and assessment review board. Interviews for a new chief administrative officer (CAO) have been conducted, and a new CAO is expected to be appointed in the near future. The CAO is to ensure an organizational chart is prepared, and an annual professional development plan be established by the CAO. Council will also be conducting a review of all bylaws in its records and to consolidate similar or identical bylaws and rescind bylaws which are no longer necessary.

During council’s review it was pointed out that council had no control over the appointment of the inspector nor the selection of the timeline of review which was conducted by Stephen Thompson of MuniCon on behalf of Municipal Affairs. Back on Nov. 17, 2011 town council requested an inspection be performed by Municipal Affairs in regards to any matters with management, administration and operations of the Town of Lamont. “Upon receipt of the request, the minister responded with a letter to the mayor that the inspection had been granted.” It was also pointed out

that more than 11 months passed before an inspector was appointed, which was primarily delayed due to the provincial election. The inspector was instructed to perform the inspection during the period of December 2012 to February 2013. “Town council had neither control of the appointed inspector nor the selection of the time line chosen.” Residents who have any further questions or concerns regarding the inspection report are to foward them to the department of municipal affairs as directed in the review.

Crosswalk safety concerns along SH 831 reach transportation Michelle Pinon Editor

Recent safety concerns expressed by a couple of Lamont residents has resulted in the town requesting action from the province’s department of highways. Sandi Maschmeyer, acting chief administrative officer, stated she had received several requests asking to have two pedestrian crossing signs on both sides of Secondary Highway 831 and two painted white lines across the highway at 56 Avenue and Duke Drive. As well, there was a

request to have the main school crossing (south of the four way stop) between Lamont Elementary School and Lamont High School equipped with an overhead flashing school crossing lights installed. Maschmeyer also confirmed that Richard Chernyk, public works foreman for the town, verbally requested the changes to Alberta Transportation. One of the requests had initially been made to coun. Sylvia McDonald who forwarded the matter onto Maschmeyer. McDonald stated during council’s

May 28 meeting, that children frequently cross over from Edna and Campbell subdivisions over Secondary Highway 831 and then from 56 Avenue and Duke Drive to Hillside Park. Coun. McDonald said there is a need for signage at those crossing points, and would also like to see safety measures put in place. With less than a month of school remaining, and more and more pedestrian and bike traffic on the roads, Coun. McDonald agreed the sooner safety measures are put in place the better.


Mayor Bill Skinner said he had a close encounter recently with two kids on bikes who were not paying attention while pedalling on main street, and had to put on the brakes to avoid a collision. Coun. Gail Hrehorets inquired about bike safety courses, and wondered if something like Pedal Pushers could be offered. Coun. McDonald said she did offer and operate a bike safety course a few years ago, but only had five participants.


Improved safety at crosswalks like this in Lamont was the topic of recent discussion at town council’s May 28 meeting.

Send your Letter to the Editor to: The Lamont Leader Box 1079, Lamont, AB T0B 2R0 Fax: 780-895-2705

Letter To The Editor Ratepayers urged not to put ‘heads in sand’ when it comes to councilors responsibilities In Nov. ‘79 I moved to Lamont with my family (wife Peggy and three daughters) and became the first Credit Union manager of the Lamont Credit Union, and have resided in Lamont since then. Back then when a new person moves to a small community, there’s the old established guard and the “new people.” Traces of the old guard remain and when I chose to challenge them (some were members of council) when I discovered a number of irregularities shortly after Mr. Miller was employed by the town. Any challenges to the old guard by the new people just wasn’t done nor acceptable. Although a number of irregularities were and have been sent to every existing and new member of town council, since my uncovering of grave irregularities (over five years now), a clash of personalities between myself and some members of council created an unfortunate situation whereby some members of council council, would not accept nor acknowledge any irregularities even though I had provided documentation to support my claims. In an effort to silence myself and prevent me

from proceeding further, some tactics the council members chose were to: *Never to let me address council. *Most members of council would not acknowledge anthing I sent to them nor contact me as requested. *Council hired a solicitor who wrote to me and if you read between the lines once could easily see it was to intimidate. This effort was unsuccessful and cost us ratepayers I would estimate $20,000. This was because of events and steps I forced the council to take. *A complaint that I was “threatening members of council” was file with RCMP in the Fort and these members were told upon doing their investigation that there was no substance to the claim and I had not done anything wrong. * I did advise all members of council from day one that pursuant to the Act that if any trust funds of the town (these are dollars collected from taxes, utilities, grants, etc.) are approved by council and used for any irregularities that each member of council are personally responsible for the repayment of these. This you may appreciate was a factor

in the large legal bill of the town. Fom my experience when a situation such as mine came forward one cannot just proceed in a shotgun, piece meal fashion, but you must follow certain established protocols set forth and these do take large amount of time, but must be followed. For example, when I approached Municipal Affairs with these documents I was told: pursuant to the Act the government does not have to investigate any complaint. For over 40 years, Municipal Affairs has, according to my information, only proceeded on any complaint three times and this was after the fact. Can you believe that over 40 years the government only received three complaints? Poppycock. Due to the democratic process we could show any objections at voting time and therefore the government would not become involved. What this means in plain terms is that the government doesn’t want to become involved, and if any ratepayer choses to proceed, that you could do so through through the courts at great cost and time. On May 28, ‘13 Mr.

Kerry Anderson Publisher

Miller appeared on the national news as a result of a previous story they had run, and was arrested by the RCMP and four charges pursuant to the criminal code filed. The incident was first reported in 2008. Please note that I did contact the RCMP about this matter, however, the RCMP after numerous exchanges told me that they considered this to be a civil matter. Perhaps if my original complaint was carried on the national news things may have worked out differently. Remember in my situation you have a small guy like me challenging a higher authority (I was ridiculed and deemed whenever possible and was up against an entity that had a large amount of resources). Again in a situation like this when someone has a large amount of resources and time this is used to try and force a smaller guy to give. It is my understanding that a statement of claim was filed against the Town of Lamont and Mr. Miller for 20 plus million dollars concerning the story carried by the news a few months ago, where a developer was proceeding with a project in Lamont but did not pro-

Michelle Pinon Editor

ceed because of some questionable actions, and thereby incurred losses. If they win where will the money come? These are two possible answers: *Insurance will cover a small amount. *Us ratepayers will have to pay any amounts greater than the insurance. Why and how? The town has the power pursuant to the Act, borrow money again further taxes revenues. This cause interest expenses, plus our taxes will go up. Mr. Miller’s services with the town were terminated and he receive a “golden handshake.” Did you know that Mr. Miller was given a contract by the town for five to seven years at a rate of pay higher than what the CEO of Fort Saskatchewan was making? I have a copy of this contract, and mr Miller’s rate of pay - not including benefits ranged from $90,000.00 in 2007, to$104,000.00 in 2011. This contract in my opinion does have irregularities. Because Mr. Miller was terminated prior to the contract ending, I understand that he was paid out on the remaining term. Ratepayers, you have a couple of choices I

Jodie TracyDerksen Harding Ad Sales Office Manager/ Ad Composition

would like to bring to your attention because we all will have to make a decision. Each ratepayer can solicit the town to have a meeting for ratepayers to review the matter. At the meeting, ratepayers can sign a petition requesting that a plebicite be held which would allow each ratepayer to vote yes or no about pursuing members of council for the amount they maybe liable for. If the vote is no, that’s the end. If the vote is yes, then a legal firm would be hired to proceed (again any cost would come from the town’s coffers.) This would take time, however, if the defendant were to transfer, hide, liquidate, etc. any assets until this is concluded, they would then be in violation of the Criminal Code. Look, our taxes are way way high, and have been since I can remember. Now we could be looking at greater costs. What about the seniors, people on a limited income, sick, etc? Ok people you decide!

Local communities pitch in to support upcoming prostate cancer fundraiser Michelle Pinon Editor

Folks in the communities of Andrew, Mundare and Lamont will be putting out the welcome mat for hundreds of motorcycle riders June 8. The Edmonton chapter of the Motorcycle Ride for Dad will be cruising into the communities to raise awareness and research for prostate cancer.

riders are expected to participate in the exciting fundraiser. There will be special cheque presentations in Andrew before cyclists head south down Secondary Highway 855 to Mundare where they will be treated to sausage burgers and salads as well as entertainment by a local blues band.

Former students share laughs at Lamont High School 50 year class reunion Jazmine Inkster Student Reporter

Lamont High School held their 50 year class reunion over this past weekend and with nearly 180 people in attendance, there were lots of laughs between old friends and many memories shared. Of those who had attended, 107 of them were prior students and graduates of Lamont High School. The reunion celebrated the 50 year anniversary of graduating for three graduating classes. The class of 1962 (50 years in 2012), 1963 (50 years in 2013), and 1964 (50 years in 2014). During the supper that was provided, the guests were treated to speaches from both prior class-

mates as well as teachers, town councillor Steven Sharun, and a performance by the former Lamont High School cheerleading squad. The MC for the evening was Richard Mandryk who kept the audience on their toes with his reminiscence of the ideosyncricies of both the students and teachers, with a series of “do you remembers” that had everyone laughing all throughout the evening. Among the memories he shared with the former students were the bus rides to and from school in which the girls would have a “makeup paint by number session”, a student doing a hockey broadcaster announcer impression during school council meetings, and the boys

checking dorms for smoke detectors. “It was all part of the plan of growing up” explains Mandryk, “It was a part of creating memories.”Also speaking was class of 62 graduate Randy Harrold, who spoke of how much everything had changed in the 50 years since his graduation here in Lamont. “I’ve got a lot of miles on me, but my roots are still here,” adds Harrold. He reminded the audience of all of the milestones society here has reached since that time, speaking of the ease of travel, information, and general contact now compared to 50 years ago, referring of course to the ‘party lines’. “We might have been the first bloggers,” he laughed.

Harrold also took the time to thank all of the teachers who had taken their time to ensure the students were looked after, saying it took great dedication for them to prepare all of the students for life in a world that was so different than their own when they were growing up. Many of the students had impressions of the teachers who had been a huge part of their school lives, which Mandryk reminded the audience of. He spoke of the tendency for the hallways to empty as soon as the door to the office was opened, and how when an english assignment was handed back, there always seemed to be more red ink than blue. He also gave credit to Mr. and Mrs. Saruk, of

whom he said “you could always give a good listening to.” There were also words of advice from two of the teachers, Pat Calvert and John Howie, who both laughed at the idea of retired english teachers saying only “a few words”. Howie mentioned that although he was supposed to be giving the students advice as an elder, he explained that at the time of his position in the Lamont high school, he was only a mere five years older than the students. “So much for sage advice from an elder,” Howie joked. Calvert said that overall, she was proud of all of her students, and was pleased with where they had all gone in their

lives. Adding that nowadays she sees many parents who send their children to the city for their education, so that their kids can have the benefit of a big school. “Don’t kid yourselves,” Calvert added, “you kids come from a small school, and look what you’ve done with yourselves.” As a final English assignment to her former pupils, Calvert told the audience to ensure that their grandchildren get a good education, saying that that is the most important thing they could do.

CHOOSE THE BEST SOLUTION FOR YOUR WEED SPECTRUM AND PRESSURE When you add the recent discovery of glyphosate13054TA0 13061TA0 resistant kochia in Southern Alberta to the existing challenges of Group 1 wild oat resistance and Group 2 cleaver, kochia and chickweed resistance, it’s even more important to have choices that can best fit your weed spectrum and don’t break the bank. “EVEREST GBX can be customized in terms of rate and tank-mix partners, based on individual weed spectrum and pressure,” says Brekkas. “EVEREST GBX tank-mixed with MCPA, 2,4-D or DEPLOY® gets more than 50 broadleaf weeds, including the most critical resistant weeds in Western Canada. And all at a better price than tank-mixing EVEREST 2.0 with a comparable broadleaf option.”

Al Shamel Shriners make Chipman resident’s dream of new handicapped van come true Thirty-two-year-old Melinda Kykosz of Chipman was hoping she’d be among those lucky Canadians to win one of the five wheelchair accessible vans being offered last month in a contest by the National Mobility Dealers Association during May’s “National Mobility Awareness Month.” Jackie Rae Greening of CFCW even launched a campaign to get as many votes as possible with the hopes of getting a new van to replace a 17year-old one which is no longer roadworthy for wheelchair-bound Melinda who has Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy, and has been looked after by her grandparents since she was two. When Melinda and her 82-year-old Grandfather John Cooper of Chipman - were unsuccessful in winning one of the vans, Jackie Rae discussed that dilemma on the radio station at a time when Al Shamal Shriners Recorder Gary Willis was listening.

Willis then discussed the situation with Al Shamal President Larry Howard and the Al Shamal executive. They quickly agreed to donate the Shriners’ 2006 low mileage totally customized electronic wheelchair accessible van to Melinda in as much as it was not being fully utilized. Since Melinda’s grandmother died in 2009, she and her caregiver Grandpa John - who she calls her hero - have been struggling to live off only his seniors pension. “While the Shriners and our 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children primarily help children get well up to the age of 18,” said Al Shamal President Larry Howard, “there are always exceptions where we have assisted those who are older.” “In the case of Melinda, she touched the hearts of all Shriners and we are delighted to provide her with this van. She is truly an inspiration to one and all, as is her grandfather, John Cooper.” Howard added

that Al Shamal is always looking for ways and means of assisting those in Edmonton and North/Central Alberta. Such as establishing a $3-million Shriners Pediatric Scoliosis Research Chair at the U of A Hospital with the Alberta Government contributing $1.5 million; donating $20,000 towards The Fallen Four RCMP park at Mayerthorpe; providing $50,000 to save Grande Prairie’s Camp Tamarack for the Disabled from being closed; establishing a Shriners wing at the Glenrose Hospital to assist Shrine patients and other children who require rehabilitation; plus establishing a $50,000 endowment fund at the Stollery Children’s Hospital. Al Shamal and the Shriners also established artificial skin banks for University Hospital and other Alberta and Canadian hospitals with burns centres, as well as providing transportation for patients with orthopaedic problems or burn injuries, plus a par-

ent, to any of the 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children. “Helping sick kids get well has always been our motto for the last 91 years that our hospitals have been operating,” said Howard, “including the current 100 active patients Al Shamal now have. And if that sick individual happens to be over 18 - as Melinda Kykosz is - she or he, will receive that same kind of love, care and attention.”

Dessert Theatre offers up tasty treats and delicious fare in Mundare


Grade 7 and 8 students from Mundare School performed the play After Hours in front of 80 people on Friday evening. Pictured from left to right are: Cheyenne Sharun, Jamie Perlik, Cole Burke, Brett Burghardt, and Leo Chow. Sian Vadnais, library technican and assistant said despite some technical difficulties with the lights, the show went off without a hitch. “The audience laughed in all the right places (and even some we weren’t expecting), and everyone delivered their lines with gusto.” Vadnais wanted to acknowledge the efforts of all students and parents involved in the play as well as physicial education teacher Jason Lafrance for use of the gym for rehearsals which began six weeks ago.

Leo Chow, plays a mannequin, who gets much more than her bargained for when he is delivered to the clothing store.

Delivery driver played by Hannah Saric shows store owner Briannna Patrie the time while security guard Kassidy Iwaskow checks things out at the clothing store prior to closing for the day.

Lamont High School first annual Fun Run considered to be an astounding sucess 32 participants were able to raise $750.00 raised to make students’ extracurricular sports more affordable Jazmine Inkster Student reporter

The Lamont high School’s Active for Athletics Fun Run was considered to be a great success by both Erin Meleskie, and Cindy Gruber (coordinators). The run was held on June 1st, and both Gruber and Meleskie say the attendance was far

beyond what they had initially expected and hoped for. In total, 32 runners came for the event; many who brought their dogs to do the five kilometer walk, five kilometer run, and the 10 kilometer run. Compared to the original 25 that they had hoped for, the organizers were quite pleased. “Anything over 25 we

considered to be a success,” says Meleskie. Meleskie also added that the turnout was quite surprising considering all of the other events that had been going on throughout the weekend. The runners took off at 11:00 am, and slowly returned in groups to the school by around 12:30 to be treated to a barbe-

cue lunch. In total, the school was able to raise about $750 for the athletics program. The money raised will go towards lowering the cost for extra curricular athletics teams for the school. Previously, Gruber had stated that the goal for the event was to make the teams affordable for anyone who wanted to join.

It was a learning experience says Meleskie, who says that next year they will probably change the date of the event so that it will not

be in conflict with so many other activities happening on the same day.
