Chipman and area residents bring concerns regarding bridge closure to village council Michelle Pinon Editor

Tracy Childs was one of eight Chipman area residents who attended the May 6 village council meeting to bring forward their concerns regarding the temporary closure of a bridge north of Highway 15 on Range Road 184. The bridge has been closed since October of 2012 because the structure was failing and deemed unsafe. Residents wanted to know which municipality is responsible for the bridge and when it would be fixed or replaced. In a previous letter addressed to Village of Chipman councillors, Lamont County councillors and public works director Harold Hamilton, and MLA Jacquie Fenske, Childs stated they were directly affected by the closure, and had never received any formal information

or public consultation regarding the temporary closure. “This bridge is the main highway access for four families living on this road, as well as the main access to the Village of Chipman sewage lagoons, several agricultural properties, and maintenance crews servicing the several well site leases on Range Road 184.” Childs went onto state that: “This week, a large sinkhole opened up in the road just north of the bridge, and a man was trapped in the hole until emergency crews arrived. Luckily, he was rescued with only minor injuries.” According to Harold Hamilton, “The bridge is the Village of Chipman’s; this was part of the annexation from the county.” The county closed the bridge on October 25, 2012 because the bridge was failing. Hamilton said the pier piles were leaning and twisting, and the bridge

was no longer safe. Childs said village council did pass a bylaw to temporarily close Range Road 184 to through traffic until the bridge is repaired, but they don’t know when that will be. “They are working with the county to ensure the sinkhole and area around the bridge is as safe as possible.” The Village of Chipman will have to apply for provincial funding and would require federal approval because it involves a water body. “According to Chipman council, there are a lot of bridges in the province that need to be repaired or replace right now so there is no way to know when funding will be available. They will make the applications and move forward with construction when funds are available, but it could take more than three years.”


A group of Chipman area residents took their concerns about a temporary road closure to village council May 6th in search of answers to their questions.

Anticipated school boundary review could spell welcome news for Bruderheim and area residents Michelle Pinon Editor

For Bruderheim Mayor Karl Hauch, the long and short of it is wanting the school to grow and prosper and for the town to do whatever it can to help out. Case in point, is a request he made a couple of years ago on behalf of town council to Elk Island Public Schools, requesting a boundary review to increase the size of the area and better serve rural families in Lamont County. “We are focused on the future. We need to grow the school, and that’s why we wanted the review,” stated Hauch. He is glad to see things may be moving ahead in that direction. EIPS Superintendent Bruce Beliveau did con-

firm they are in the preliminary stages at this point, and will be conducting further research in the months ahead. Beliveau did not divulge any further details, but that some information would be forthcoming in the fall. Bruderheim School Principal Sven Danzinger commented that he is looking forward to the process. “This is going to be a process with many steps, and I anticipate starting in the fall when we return to school.” In order to start the process, Danzinger said the school division will gather information about what kinds of changes are possible. “Transportation and the costs and logistics that go with bussing is a specific area that has to be carefully considered.”

In terms of impact to the school, Danzinger said it is too early to tell because they don’t yet know what is and isn’t possible to change. Regardless, “We will be working with our parents and school community to keep them informed as the process moves along. If, after we’ve completed our internal research, we determine changes of any kind may be possible, we’ll work with our parents and community to collect their feedback on potential options.” Hauch said that input from parents and community members is crucial, and must be done early on in the process. “The key is for people to attend those meetings.” He strongly urges Bruderheim and area residents to communicate and get actively

involved. “Full community involvement is an important focus of Bruderheim School, and making sure parents are kept informed is a priority for the district and me,” stated Danzinger. “Bruderheim School will continue to offer the same quality education to our students in the coming years, whoever they may be,” added Danzinger. People looking to move to Bruderheim look at the education system and day care, pointed out Hauch. So having a strong, vibrant school with day care are keys to prosperity. “All those things go hand in hand,” added Hauch, who has the best interests of residents and future citizens at heart.

A possible boundary review for Bruderheim School would be welcome news, says Hauch.

Firefighters battle dangerous fire north of Lamont Around 30 firefighters were called into action May 16 to battle a grass and brush fire approximately 24 kilometres north of Lamont just east of Secondary Highway 831 at Township Road 580. The Bruderheim Fire Department received the initial call around 3 p.m. and received assistance from Lamont, Chipman and Andrew

Fire Depts. Lamont Fire Chief John Helton said they were lucky the fire stopped before it reached a grove of pine trees. While firefighters fought to contain the blaze, Fort Saskatchewan RCMP rerouted traffic onto gravel roads during the course of the afternoon. Helton said the fire

was brought under control around 5 p.m. Carelessness is suspected to be the cause of the fire. “We suspect it was a cigarette because it started on the side of the road,” added Helton. On the following day, both Bruderheim and Lamont responded to a call of a flare up at the site. That was a false alarm.


Around 30 firefighters from Lamont, Bruderheim, Chipman and Andrew were on the scene of a dangerous grass fire north of Lamont Wednesday afternoon. Traffic on Highway 831 had to be diverted for a couple of hours while crews got the blaze under control.


Representatives from Lamont Elementary School were on hand to accept a cheque from Fort Saskatchewan-Vegreville MLA Jacquie Fenske, right, for the redevelopment of the playground at the school. The total amount of the cheque was $5,780.

Resident questions inspection timeline On May 8, 2013 Mr. S. Thompson presented a report to the citizens based upon an inspection he had done on the operation of the town on behalf of the provincial government. This inspection had been requested by council members. Recently the Town of Lamont was featured on the national news because of a taped meeting with Tom miller and a developer and possible illegal activities. Myself as well as other ratepayers to whom I have spoken to assumed that the inspection requested by council would cover some period that related to and concerning Mr. Millers’ employment with the town. I was wrong. After meeting with Mr. Thompson, the timeframe that council requested the inspection

was only after Mr. Miller had left his employment with the town to the present. Mr. Thompson, pursuant to his contract with the province could not inspect nor make any recommendations on any irregularities that may have taken place during the course of Mr. Millers’ employment by the town. Shortly after Mr. Miller became employed by the town and due to one incident that took place between Mr. Miller and me, a number of irregularities came to mind. Prior to retirement, I was employed with Alberta Corporate Tax Collections, responsible for collecting and protecting the Crown’s interest who owed over $100,000.00 in taxes. This required knowledge of financial statements, business operations, and knowledge of provincial acts to recommend what

legal procedures may be required. For the past five years I have written to every member of town council (this includes all newly elected council members) by fax, letters mailed and dropped off at the town office, email, and in some cases registered letters stating that a number of irregularities were supported by documentation, in other words supported my claims. Council members over the course of five plus years did not have the courtesy of contacting myself to investigate these claims and only a couple of times when I was contacted, it was to try to silence me. A solicitor was hired by the town to exert pressure on myself to discontinue what I had started at a cost in my opinion of well over $10,000.00 but I continued on.

I followed the proper protocol required and for example, Alberta Human Rights did file an order against the town (you can see this order on the internet) - an order against a town by the province is a very serious step. In an effort to please the proving, the town for example in writing advised the province that I could review the town minutes, (the town would not let me see these minutes although they are required to by law) and when I attended the town office to review these minutes, Mr. Miller would not let me see them and I was told to leave. Again, numerous irregularities took place during my dealings with the town, and these were all documented and always sent to members of council for their action as they came to light, but

to no avail. Other examples are: financial statements, questionable use of town funds, lack of accountability, reporting of income from the town by some council members and or their families, use of town assets, questions about the purchase of town property by a previous council member, failure to adhere to the Alberta Municipal Act, vocations of provincial statuses, ect. In my opinion, the “inspection” requested by the members of council is a slap in the face to each ratepayer because it does and did not pertain to numerous irregularities (again, council was aware of these) that happened during Mr. Millers’ employment. Council can say “we had an inspection done by government and there weren’t any serious problems” but what

period does this inspection pertain to? Why did these members of council act in this manner? In my opinion, part is personalities, and because of this they chose to support and believe Mr. Miller over documentation presented to them by myself. With an election coming up, I cannot support any council member that may choose to run again and I would also like to bring to your attention that pursuant to the act Each member of council who was a sitting member at the time of any irregularities are personally liable for any amounts applicable which I did bring to their attention and may have been another factor in them not taking a different course.

Lamont physician to be honoured with a memorial golf tournament this summer Hospital surgical program to benefit from charity event Jazmine Inkster Student Reporter

Staff at the Lamont Health Care Centre have decided to honour the legacy and memories left behind by the late Dr. Mihirendra Nath Ray. The tournament will take place at Fort In View Golf Course, and will raise money for the Surgical Program at the hospital, both through registration and a silent auction. The money raised will go towards upgrading existing equipment, as well as purchasing new equipment that isn’t currently covered in the hospital’s budget. “There’s new equipment coming out that would make things better for us,” explained tournament organizer Johanne Chicoine, who had worked for Dr. Ray for 8 years. She added that the equipment would help improve the quality of care for the patients. Dr. Ray was remembered as easygoing by all those who worked for him. He had been the general surgeon at LHCC for over 30 years, and was a strong advocate for the surgical program according to Chicoine. “He was like a mentor for us in the O.R here” adding that he was supportive not only in their professional life, but in their personal life as well. She remembers him as being someone who could be very serious, but also had moments where he was quite

lively, remembering one time in particular that he was doing the “Gangnam style” dance during work. Coworker Donna Melnyk agreed wholeheartedly saying that he knew when to be serious, but when the day was over “he was one of us.” Melnyk says that the part of Dr Ray that she remembers most clearly about him was his friendliness. “Even those of us who worked for him, we always felt the compassion he had.” She added that he had no prejudice towards patients for any reason, and he would go out of his way to answer each person’s questions in a way that they would be able to understand. He fit the bill of what you’d think of a doctor.” Both ladies remember multiple sayings that Dr Ray had used, saying that many of them are still used today, such as his tendency to say “hullah” instead of hello, and always stating how things were “peculiar.” “He was known to say ‘I’ll do it my way’” said Melnyk, adding that even though he would say that, he would never ignore a suggestion that the others had made. Although there are no definite fundraising goals set being as this is the first year for the event, Chicoine says that it would be great to be able to raise $5,000.00. She would like it to be an annual event that people could look forward to throughout the year.


Well known and beloved Lamont physician Doctor Ray will be honoured with a special memorial golf tournament this summer.

Lamont County Reeve Wayne Woldanski appointed chair of Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association (AIHIA) is celebrating its fifteenth anniversary of the municipal partnership, originally created in May 1998. Highlighting the anniversary at today’s annual general meeting was newly appointed board chair Wayne Woldanski, Reeve of Lamont County. “Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association has been a unique and successful model of municipal cooperation since forming fifteen years ago, ensuring coordinated planning, infrastructure, policies, and marketing,” commented Woldanski. “I am proud and excited to guide the organization and look forward to working with the community, industry, and government as board chair.”

Throughout the past fifteen years, the Heartland evolved from an industrial area with $10 billion of capital infrastructure to Canada’s largest hydrocarbon processing region worth over $30 billion. More than forty companies currently operate in the Heartland region providing fuels, fertilizers, power, petrochemicals and more to provincial and global consumers. “The economy, technology, and more has changed since the municipal partnership formed. However, several elements were identified as key in 1998 and to this day remain vital to our success and commitment to community, environment, and our various stakeholders,” explained Woldanski. “Promoting value adding through the

Alberta Plus campaign and pursuing opportunities in energy, chemical, and agriculture sectors, as well as environmental projects like energy mapping and carbon capture and storage will further enhance the Heartland and our role in Alberta’s and Canada’s future.” The Association is committed to coordinated, safe, and environmentally sound development, as it has since 1998. Then Alberta Premier Ralph Klein applauded the partnership, saying “These municipalities are building on the key strengths of our Alberta Advantage. And they have also added another element to our advantages and local cooperation for better long-term, regional growth.”


On May 17 Lamont County Reeve Wayne Woldanski, left, was voted in as the new chair of the Alberta Industrial Heartland Association (AIHA) board of directors.

Youth participate in tri-club memorial trap shoot


Members of the Fort Saskatchewan, Lamont and Mundare Fish & Game Associations participated in the Jerritt Zayac Memorial Tri-Club Trap Shoot May 11. Even MLA Jacquie Fenske (front middle) got in on some of the action during the event held near Mundare.

Michelle Pinon Editor

A total of 20 local youth participated in the Jerritt Zayac Memorial Tri-Club Trap Shoot May 11 at the Mundare range. The youth, between the ages of 10 and 18 years of age, got to test their skills throughout the day with Colton Biro and Rachel Hinken reaching the top of the leader board. The winners will receive their trophies at the annual Lamont Fish & Game Association awards banquet in January. Members of the Fort Saskatchewan, Lamont and Mundare fish and game associations all took part in the fifth annual memorial trap shoot. One of the youth, 15-year-old Jason Hinken from Bruderheim, also participated in a youth archery camp at Camp He-Ho-Ha. Hinken, along with three other members of the Lamont Fish & Game Association went to the camp which is designed for kids with mental and physical disabilities. Hinken was happy to have participated in the unique camp and raise $750 for the Shoot for the Cause, the charity drive which makes the annual camp possible. Hinken said he was one of about 750 youth to attend the camp which was held May 3, 4, and 5. Hinken was one of 120 archers at the camp. “It was a great experience, and I would definitely do it again,” said Hinken. He also loves going to the camps at the Narrow Lake Youth Centre. He has gone from participant to archery instructor in a few short years, and will be spending the entire month of July at the camp where he will be doing both youth and women’s camps. Even though it was purely by chance

that Hinken got into archery and trap shooting, now his dad and his sister are involved in the sport. He is enjoying being a member of the Lamont Fish and Game Association, and would encourage other youth to get involved. The associaton will be hosting a 3-D Fun Shoot on June 15 and 16 at the Lamont Fish Pond. There will be a free pancake breakfast on Father’s Day (June 16) for all registered shooters. There will be two rounds per day of 25 plus 3-D targets as well as an apple shoot. The association will also be hosting two other fun shoots this summer on July 20 and 21 as well as August 17 and 18.

Jason Hinken, a member of the Lamont Fish & Game Association was one of four local participants at an archery outing at Camp He-Ho-Ha recently.

Andrew School gearing up for second annual Run for the Bus


Fundraiser to support athletics program for students Michelle Pinon Editor

No one could be more excited than Cory Kokotailo, other than the students at Andrew School who will be participating in the second annual Run for the Bus fun run on June 1. You can count in staff, parents, and community members as well, because they lend support in a variety of ways for the fundraiser that is designed to promoted athletics and offset the cost of gas to operate the Wildcats bus. Kokotailo, who heads the athletics program at Andrew School, verified that all funds raised will be used to offset the travel expenses of the program. Kokotailo said the program is ever expanding, and they log on around 12,000 kilometres per school year transporting students to and from volleyball, basketball, golf, curling, badminton, and track and field.

“The day promises to be a great success once again, with the run starting at 10 a.m. with a barbecue lunch to follow.” Last year a total of $5,400 was raised during the fun run, and Kokotailo hopes they will be able to surpass that amount. “The fun run incorporates either a four km run/walk or a 10 km run. All participants must raise a minimum of

$50. There will be prizes for the highest fundraisers and participation prizes as well,” adds Kokotailo. He is very grateful for the support of the Servus Credit Union branch in Andrew which has agreed to be the fun run’s corporate sponsor for the second year in a row. The company will be donating t-shirts for all participants.

Open House for local residents on Highway 16 management Michelle Pinon Editor

Project staff in charge of the Highway 16 Access Management Study will be on hand to answer questions and offer information to area residents during an open house at the Vegreville Centennial Library Auditorium May 29. The Highway 16 Access Management Study is part of the province’s long-term plans to convert the highway into a freeway. The study runs from Elk Island National Park (Range Road 210) to Highway 36. According to information supplied by Associated Engineering, all existing private driveways and local range and township road access to Highway 16 will be removed. Access to and from the freeway will occur only at recommended interchange locations as identified in the study.

This is the second of two open houses to be held. The purpose of the open house is to present the recommended routes and collect public input on the alternatives. The input will be used to refine the recommendations. The informal, drop in style open house will go from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. There will be no formal presentation, but project staff will be available to discuss the study. Back in April, representatives with Associated Engineering met with members of Lamont County Council. Both council and administration had serious concerns in regards to access, maintenance and associated costs, as well as possible interchange locations. Shawn Benbow gave an overview to council stating the 2005 study identified local roads that will collect traffic onto Highway 16. “As a result of this study, it will

allow landowners, businesses and municipalities plan for the future.” Council reviewed a set of recommended alignments, and the biggest concern to members would be the transferring of costs back onto the county and other municipalities for local collector roads. Representatives made it clear the roads are the Queen’s roads, and therefore the responsibility of the province to build and maintain. Even though these changes might very well be 20 years down the road, council reiterated that Alberta Transportation should foot the bill for improvements as well as maintenance. “You shouldn’t throw it into the laps of Lamont County. It’s unfair to do that. We think your report needs to reflect that,” stated Reeve Wayne Woldanski.

Vehicles collide near Star At approximately 5:45 pm on Tuesday May 14, there was a collision outside of Star, on Secondary Highway 831, and Range Road 562. The primary vehicle, a

white Kia van was travelling northbound on 831, and struck a parked silver truck while swerving to miss another vehicle. While the reports do

not say whether or not there was anyone in the truck when it was hit, there were only minor injuries on the driver who came out with only bruising.
