Dedication Ceremony marks milestone Lamont Health Care Centre pays tribute to former premier Ed Stelmach BY MICHELLE PINON Editor

More than 100 people attended the dedication ceremony for the Morley Young Manor assisted living complex in Lamont this past Friday. Tributes were made in honour of the former physician, who practiced medicine at the Lamont Health Centre and left an indelible mark on people from all walks of life and all around the world. Board chairman Kent Harrold paid tribute to Morley Young, and reflected on his philosophies, career, community service, and accomplishments. Described as a “remarkable visionary,”

Young was one of the first doctors in Canada to receive his surgical license. Harrold talked about the farm boy from Manitoba, who found his calling in life, and how he found his calling when he came to Lamont in 1922 to work in the small mission hospital. He spoke of Young’s home visits and how he persuaded some men from the local dealership to come up with some sort of contrivance in order to make it through plugged roads in the countryside during harsh, snow laden winter months. Called “the bug” the Ford chassis with ski’s on the front , and held down with sisal

ropes on the front and back. The next model came with a cockpit. “The local population marvelled and wondered over these things.” Young also taught nurses, as there was a training school at the hospital. Former students often spoke of the kindness of town residents who welcomed students into their homes for meals and took them out for outings. Dr. Young, and his family started a young people’s group which featured many different activities from educational speakers to Bible stories, plays, wiener roasts and skating parties. In fact, many of the

local youth and the students kept in touch during World War II. He challenged his young charges to embark

on their own personal quest to ask the right questions, and to discover what God had intended for them.

One of Dr. Young’s achievements was the establishment of the first medical health insurance plan in Canada back in 1933 through a special agreement. “In the late fifties and sixties, he urged the government to build auxiliary hospitals and nursing homes to address the needs of the elderly.” Dr. Young held many prestigious titles with various medical associations. “He was one of a small contingent of doctors to be recognized for the quality of his work, and integrity of his profession, and how he met the needs of the community.” Cont’d on page 3

Local resident makes a difference BY MICHELLE PINON Editor

About a year ago Lamont area resident Janelle Beverly was online when a contest for difference makers popped up on her computer screen. She decided to apply, and proceeded to

Rick Hansen’s “Many In Motion” cross country tour. “I thought it’d be a cool thing, but I never expected I’d be in it.” But on March 8th, Beverly participated in the Leduc leg of the national tour, carrying an engraved silver medal, along with her one-year-old grand-

daughter Hayden along a 250 metre stretch of roadway in a residential district of the nearby city. Beverly said she was “so honoured to participate”

in the commemorative relay marking 25 years since the original “Man In Motion” tour in which paraplegic Hansen wheeled his way throughout Canada and several other countries to raise money for spinal cord research. The runners supported each other, and she walked around two kilometres in total, and stopping at a couple of local schools during the exciting day. The joyous atmosphere was infectious, and Beverly said, “The people were so much fun.” Spirits were so high, and Beverly said she enjoyed the high fives and personal support she received during her leg of the journey. Being one of 7,000 difference makers selected to participate in the tour, was indeed a heartwarming experience, and one that will be etched in her memory forever. Beverly, a mother of three children, and one grandchild, has worked in the field of education for 15 years as a teacher’s aide. She has always

been an active volunteer. Before she moved to the area a year and a half ago, Beverly resided in Hinton, where she organized conferences for children, volunteered with the cancer society, and spent many years

Plaques unveiled at dedication ceremony Cont. from front page Because of Dr. Young's intelligence, ingenuity, and generosity; Harrold added that people in the community have and continue to be benefactors of his work. Board member Trudy Harrold touched on the uniqueness of the facility, and harkened back to the 1997 sod turning ceremony. "Fifteen years later there are 42 units and two common areas, which encompass individual, personal and community space as well as address the physical health needs of residents. Truly, a "community in place," which accommodates all of the phases of aging, Harrold had nothing but admiration for the board and staff and residents who have created such a close knit community. She then introduced residents Frances Shlichta and Jamie Fedyniak, who jointly unveiled a dedication plaque. Fellow board member Mae Adamyk told the audience how honoured she was to be able to pay tribute to Ed Stelmach, the former premier who she considers to be a friend. They are former colleagues as well, serving on both county council and the hospital board. "I watched him grow as an MLA, and he has honoured us with many portfolios. Adamyk spoke with pride as she described Stelmach as a person who brought so much dignity and class to the

table, and regarded him highly as a "thinker" and "humble" human being with a wonderful smile, who always remembered their names. "He is a humble man of integrity." She mentioned his family, faith, friends, love of the land, and desire to be a steward of the land as well as the province. Stelmach was presented with two pictures, that were hung in the library of the manor

“He is a humble man of integrity� following the dedication ceremony. In kind, Ed and Marie Stelmach donated a couple of pictures for the facility, as well as a box of books for the library named in his honour. Several people in the audience made donations to the library, and had some of their own books autographed by Stelmach following the ceremony. Stelmach, who was born in the hospital, talked about a photograph Ed Melnyk had taken of his family while leaving the hospital rounds with Dr. Young. He recalled his father buying a 1951 Chevrolet car to take him home in.

It was a wet year, and they couldn't drive home on the Zawale Road. Stelmach expressed his heartfelt thanks on behalf of his family for the special tribute, and also paid tribute to Dr. Young and his staff at the facility who have supported many families throughout years of treatment. Fred Horne, the Minister of Health and Wellness, sent a letter of congratulations, and expressed his gratitude to all residents, families and community leaders for the important accomplishment in the Lamont community. Horne also acknowledge the efforts of Stelmach. "He has dedicated his career in the public service to improving the lives of his constituents and Albertans as a whole. His extensive resume in public service includes time spent as a member of the Lamont Auxiliary Hospital and Nursing Home Board. “For more than 15 years, the Morley Young Manor Assisted Living Complex has grown with the Lamont community, successfully delivering essential health care needs to area residents. With this dedication ceremony, you mark an important milestone in your service to your community. The work done at this facility is helping to build a healthy, supportive Alberta, where people live, thrive, and reach their full potential."

Kudos and Thank You The Lamont Figure Skating Club held their annual ice show this past Sunday. The show took form, and was a huge hit. I generally won't do much of the covering for the skating club, as I am the coach of the club and it is a conflict of interest. However, this week I am wanting to send out a huge thank you to the skaters and the executive for making this season with me an incredible one! Last season when I finished coaching in Smoky Lake, I claimed I was done on the ice. I got the job at the newspaper and was going in a different direction. Then the Lamont Figure Skating Club contacted me, about looking for a coach. I started talking with the president and ended up applying. And boy am I glad I did. This season with Lamont rejuvenated my love for coaching, and skating again. I have a young club, with great skaters in it. The executive has worked tremendously hard at making the season a success, and I feel they succeeded beyond imagination. The girls in Starskate are some of the greatest kids I have taught. They have a love for the sport, and it has grown as the season has moved forward. The Canskate and Kidskate group has been the same way. I have never received so many hugs on a daily basis from all my skaters any other time in my coaching career. These skaters show up regularly, hardly ever miss a practice, and work so hard on the ice, yet smile the whole time. There are days that I stand and watch what they are working on, and notice that I am smiling from ear to ear just from what they have accomplished. It is such a great feeling. This has truly been a great experience, and I have the greatest gratitude for my club and executive. Thank you and job well done! I can’t wait to see you all next season, and see where we will go from here. Most people that know me know how much I have always loved figure skating, and in the last few years prior to Lamont the love of teaching had gone away. Lamont has helped me find that again, and for that I am truly grateful. So in closing, thank you to everyone in the club who helped me make the season successful, and showing the talent of the skaters that we have in Sunday’s show. Tracy Harding

Letter to the Editor The future of Alberta Health Care It comes as no surprise that Albertan’s rank health care as their number one priority. We need to know that when we get sick – or when our children, our parents, our loved ones get sick – our health care system will be there for us. Publicly-funded, universal health care in Canada is an idea that was born on the Prairies, and I believe that it can be perfected here. Albertans should have the best health care in the country, if not the world, and if we all pull together there is not question that we can achieve this. Last week I had the pleasure of joining the other opposition leaders and the Health Minister

Kerry Anderson Publisher

at a Health Care Town Hall hosted by the Alberta Medical Association. We sat as a panel to respond to questions from Albertans while putting forward our vision for the future of Health in Alberta. What an interesting evening it was! Over three hundred citizens showed up and we had a very lively and interesting discussion. Albertans’ are going to have some very stark and different choices when it comes to choosing an MLA and a political party from the perspective of what we envision for health and seniors care in Alberta for the future. Health care is moving

Michelle Pinon Editor

in the wrong direction. Spiraling costs, growing wait times, the hasty creation of the health superboard, and concerns about the silencing of doctors advocating for their patients were all identified as symptoms of a system in decline. Given the realities of an aging population and increasing chronic illness, can we really continue to manage healthcare this way? I think not. Representing the Alberta Party I made it clear that throwing more money at it or privatizing it are not the answers. Alberta already spends more on health care than any other province in Canada, yet

has longer wait times and poorer outcomes than other provinces in most areas of the system. Better healthcare needs a better strategy. We must focus on longterm outcomes rather than short-term costs and shift the system from treatment to prevention. We must make transparency a core value of the system so that we can get the information we need to make the system stronger. Albertans are looking for better answers. During this upcoming election, we will finally have better options at the ballot box. Glenn Taylor Leader, Alberta Party

Sports Athlete of the week Bitzy has found her Mojo in the game of hockey TRACY HARDING While Elizabeth McPhillamey (also known as Bitzy) has been skating for four years total, when she started her second year of hockey she was like a whole new girl. After participating in Kidskate for two years, she moved into hockey. In her first year she could barely skate to the end of the ice. But at the beginning of her second season in hockey, she was amazing to watch. There was a major transformation in her dedication and her abilities on the ice. She was able to keep up with her teammates, and even pass some of them, according to team manager Dar-lene Onushko. The biggest accom-

plishment that Bitzy has made this year is even scoring two goals. "The one thing I love about pre-novice hockey is to be able to watch the children grow over the season, and that they do," states Onushko. "But when someone like Bitzy grows the way she did, it needs to be recognized. It is such an accomplishment and one I am so proud of." In the past season of hockey Bitzy has learned how to handle the puck better, she gets in and 'digs' to get the puck and passes along to the other players. She has managed to get a couple of breakaways as well, which resulted in her two goals. Bitzy is especially proficient in goal, adds Onushko, as she watches for the puck and

manages to stop the puck from going in a lot of the time. When Bitzy was in Canskate she loved to have races, and that’s how her coaches would get her moving. Now in hockey she is starting the races, and learning to get moving and pass everyone else. With all the games and tournaments that the Pre-Novice Hawks have had this season, each game Bitzy has gotten better and better. The final game being one against the moms, and a tournament in Morinville this past weekend. "Keep up the good work Bitzy, because next year those boys aren't going to know what just passed them," adds Onushko.

Plans underway for new school Officials envisioning a great future for local residents BY MICHELLE PINON Editor

Even though plans for Mundare’s new school is only in the conceptual stage right now; many people in the area are envisioning a great future for the students, staff, and community members who will be utilizing it in the years to come. Basil David, director of planning and facilities for Elk Island Public Schools, says plans have yet to be drafted, but once that happens, the project will go out to bid in the summer with the hopes of having a contractor in place before the start of school in September. The new school, which will be located beside the existing school, will have a permanent core capacity of 250 students, and a build out of 325 students, states Stan Eastman. “We will be able to accommodate pre-kindergarten students, and have the ability to upsize when and if possible,” adds David. While plans have been in the school district’s capital plan for “quite a few years” it wasn’t until last year when Alberta Education announced that funds would be allocated for the multi-million dollar project. “The school is worn and needs to be replaced,” says David. The building is not salvagable, and will eventually torn down. David says the 1965 section, a two story wing, as well as the 1957 section, will be replaced. The new school, will be just over

2,300 square metres, and house 11 teaching spaces, a kitchen space to accomodate food sciences, an infirmary room, and a recycling room. Alberta Infrastructure will be overseeing all aspects of construction, which is expected to start in the summer of 2013. The plan is to be move in ready by the start of school in 2014. School principal Tracey Arbuthnott, is one of about 12 members on the planning committee, which also consists of representation from the division’s facility services department, the project artchitects, Alberta Education and Alberta Infrastructure. Arbuthnott, who has been attending committee meetings since September, andsays: “It has been an amazing opportunity to be involved in such a great project to help serve the students of Mundare better. It has truly been a positive eye opening experience to be able to work with the amazing expertise of Alberta Infrastructure, Alberta Education, and our own facility services. All of us working together to produce the best possible school building for our Mundare students to learn and grow in.” The new school will have a foods area, adds Arbuthnott, which is something the Kindergarten to Grade 8 school currently doesn’t have. There will be a recycle room which has been designed to help with recycling, and allowing the staff and students to be as environmentally responsible

The action was end to end as the students battled the teachers from Andrew School during the Charity Hockey Game fundraiser. Also delighted with the news is Mundare Mayor Mike Saric. “Our town has been growing steadily for the past ten years, and our demographics are shifting to younger families. The school’s population is a direct reflection of that trend as the school population has risen by almost 150 per cent in that time as well. We are of the opinion that a new school will help to continue the trend by attracting families to the area.”

as possible, he adds. “There will also be a dedicated space for the counsellor’s office, which will help with the ability to offer wrap around services for the students. The modulars (portables) included in the plan will provide increased flexibility to the school in case of enrolement changes in the future. “We are all excited about the prospect of receiving a new school, and are looking forward to getting settled into the building for the start of the 2014-2015 school year.” Local school board trustee Colleen Lopushinsky is also very excited about the project. “Mundare School is one of the oldest facilities in our division, so it is wonderful news to be getting an upgrade. Mundare staff and students are looking forward to the fall of 2014 when we will open the doors to a bright and fresh new school building.”

Eight-year-old shutterbug Lincoln Doering captures all the action with his mom’s fancy camera.

Facing off at center ice were the student and school teams. Mundare School Principal Tracey Arbuthnott is happy with plans for the new school.

Lamont Playschool has fun with milk jugs

Camryn Fossum and Sienna Whaling in the milk jug igloo.

Town of Lamont employee Betty Malica got a surprise when she showed up to work last Thursday and found 50 buzzards on the front lawn of the office.

BY MICHELLE PINON Editor

Three hundred and sixty four milk jugs, four hours of construction, and seven glue sticks later, local playschool teacher Janelle Beverly had completed an igloo. Over the past couple of months parents of the three and four year olds had been washing out and recycling their milk jugs for Beverly. While they didn't know what they were going to be used for, they gladly obliged, and now the little ones are using their free play time to let their imaginations go wild in the winter hut. The idea for the fun filled project came from the popular online site You Tube. "You Tube has everything," laughs Beverly, who is always looking for creative ideas for the children to engage in. In terms of constructing the igloo, hot glue was used to meld the milk jugs together. "It was all trial and error," but was a labour of love for Beverly. "It was neat because everyone could participate in the project," adds Beverly. The initial reaction of both parents and children was very favourable, and they're were a lot of, "Oh, cool," type comments on their part as they enjoyed seeing the final product. Eventually, the milk jugs will be recycled, which will generate $91 for the playschool to be used for other fun filled projects and activities. Oh what fun for the young and young at heart!

DEVELOPMENT AND LAND USE NEW FOR LANDOWNERS SUBDIVIDING EXISTING YARD SITES IN LAMONT COUNTY When applying for a subdivision in Lamont County and it consists an existing yard site, you will require a SURVEYOR’S SITE PLAN. The benefits of obtaining a surveyor’s site plan with a subdivision application for an established yard site are: 1. Takes out the guess work for landowners, planning department staff and Municipal Planning Commission in the actual size of parcel being subdivided out. 2. Site plan is consistently in meters, shows all above ground appurtenances (buildings, fences, shelterbelts, septic, etc…), and the distances to proposed and existing property lines. 3. Prevents the frequent conflicts that arise when the surveyor does the Real Property Report – often the parcel is larger or creates non-conformance with the setback requirements of our Land Use Bylaw. 4. Speeds up the process. For more information, please call Lamont County Planning & Development @ 780-895-2233.
