Lamont town councillor Wayne Field wins distinguished AUMA service award Michelle Pinon Editor
Longevity is a rare thing in politics; but Lamont town councillor Wayne Field is a rarity, having spent 20 plus years in public service. On Sept. 25th Field was formally recognized and graciously accepted
the Distinguished Service Award for 20 years of service as an elected official in Alberta from the Alberta Urban Municipalities Assoication (AUMA) during its annual convention in Edmonton. “Twenty years of council service is a reflection of 20 years of voter support,” said Field, who could only think of one other local resident, Don Harsulla, who served as many years on council as him. Field, who formerly served as Lamont fire chief for seven years, and president of the Lions
Club, says he was sort of “thrust” into running for council by fellow volunteers and peers. When it came time for a byelection in 1991, they came to him with names already attached for nomination papers. Field, former owner of the Chevrolet dealership in Lamont, says his peers wanted to have a business voice on council, and he wanted to be that voice. He also had the support of his wife Lorraine. They have been married for 41 years, and have two children, two grandchildren, with another grandchild on the way. Field has always found serving on council to be enjoyable. “I still look forward to the meetings. As long as I’m effective, I’d like to stay on council,” added Wayne, who plans on running again in the next municipal election in October of 2013. The length of the term of office will be increased from three to four years, starting next fall, and he says that is a very good idea as it generally takes many years before plans and construction can be completed on most projects. “Three years is just scratching the surface. A lot of times it takes five to six years for a project to reach fruitition.” Being involved at the
governance level, Field has had the privilege of developing policies, and
“I’ve been proud to be a part of that.” During his tenure in
“I still look forward to the meetings. As long as I’m effective, I’d like to stay on council,” says Field. helping set the direction on several initiatives.
office, Field has served on internal and external
committees including: municipal planning, development appeal board, assessment review board, public works, recreation board, Vegreville Water Commission, Lamont Catering Club, and the Landfill Commission. Over the past 21, 22 years there have been a lot of physical and social changes in the town.
Field said he has thoroughly enjoyed working with “really good people over the years” including administration, public works, and councillors. “There’s still work to do,” added Field, who hopes to be a part of the challenges and successes that will continue to positively shape the Town of Lamont in the years to come.
Wayne and Lorraine Field have been married for 41 years, and have called Lamont home since 1976. They have two children and two grandchildren.

Medals Family, friends, colleagues and members of town council were on hand as four veteran fire fighters with the Lamont department received provincial service award medals the evening of October 9th. Fort Saskatchewan MLA Jacquie Fenske had the honour of pinning the service medals on the longtime members in recognition of 12 years of service, while fire chief John Helton presented their certificates to deserving recipients Vince Price, Mike Klos, Rick Duiker, and Helen Rich. Other recipients of the service medals who were not able to attend in person included Howard Rich and Elaine Hrycyk. Fenske said she has always had a “soft spot” for firefighters. She congratulated them on their hard work and dedication and service to the community as volunteers who sacrifice a great deal of time and energy to the job of helping save lives. Fire chief John Helton was equally proud of the firefighters who offer to go out at a moment’s notice to help people in the community during their most desperate time of need.

Good to see some hockey is still played for fun A couple of weeks ago I found myself at the hockey arena in Lamont. I had 15 minutes to spare before my meeting so I decided to peek in on an Initiation practice. These four and five-year-olds spent more time sliding instead of gliding on the ice, but each time they fell they would get back up and keep going. Many of the youngsters smiled and waved at their parents and grandparents in the bleachers. The little mighty mites were so happy and carefree, you couldn’t help but smile in return and offer encouragement to them. Their innocence was heartwarming, and definitely took the chill out of the air for me. But, as I regularly listen to news clips regarding stalled labour talks between the National Hockey League (NHL) and Players Association, my attitude quickly turns frosty. Both sides spout off about the willingness or lack of willingness to reach a “fair deal.” The only deal is the bad deal for fans who will bear the burden of the final outcome through increased ticket prices, associated merchandising costs, and whatever else. The league is trying to salvage an 82 game season, but super star players are not quite convinced of league officials’ sincerity, or so they say. Nevertheless, around 150 pros have already defected to Europe, including Alex Ovechkin. I sincerely doubt the Russian superstar, who earns $9 million per season or $109,756 per game playing for the Washington Capitals will make that much lacing up with Dynamo Moscow. According to Ovechkin, “The NHL gave fans and media hope. But really it is a deception the league is trying to show that it is working to try and save the season, but they are not offering anything new. It’s all the same. He (Bettman) made an offer and said it was good. But good for who, for Bettman?” Well, there’s no doubt it would also be good for Ovechkin, who could return to the Capitals line up to collect his regular paycheck. So the question is: “Who is deceiving whom? “It’s a business at the end of the day. That’s the dark side of things and nobody likes dealing with this. It’s not good for anyone. That’s the bottom line,” stated Sidney Crosby in recent days. Dark indeed. My bottom line is to boycott any and all future NHL hockey games, since I will never be able to afford to attend them on my regular paycheck. So I’ll just have to settle watching for watching the mighty mites, who play their hearts out for the love of the game. Call me greedy! Michelle Pinon

Letter to the Editor Writer says governenment should stop cull of wild horses Dear Editor, I am writing today to encourage all Albertans to continue with the journey of forcing the Alberta Government’s cull of Alberta’s Wild Horse to cease.

Archery season gets underway in Bruderheim Jasmine Inkster Student Reporter Lamont and Fort Saskatchewan Fish and Game Association held their first indoor archery shoot of the season on Thursday night in the Bruderheim School gym. The archery club was instigated a year ago by Fort Saskatchewan Fish and Game member Justin Kaban, and Bruderheim Mayor Karl Hauch, and has since been a very popular event throughout the Fish and Game Association members. The archery shoots are held every second Thursday until the end of the school year, with the exception of Thursdays that fall on a scheduled school holiday. At Thursday’s event, there were a total of 23 people. “Last year’s first shoot we had six, and at the peak of last year we had 30. So this is a pretty good turnout,” says Hauch.
Kaban was recently awarded a grant by Dow Chemical, which will go towards new backstops and equipment, such as bows. “We really don’t have any kids bows in

He hopes to be able to make shooting and setting up a bit easier once the new equipment is brought in. “The netting will be 10 times lighter than the carpets we’re using for backstops now,
enjoyed by everyone who took part. The event consists of a youth shoot that goes from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and an adult shoot that takes place from 8:30 p.m. until 10p.m. As well as their regular practices that are held at the school, the Fish and
Game Associations also hold 3D shoots during the summer, and trap shoots throughout the year. The youth shoot allows children and teens an opportunity to shoot with one on one help from the adults and leaders. While there is no true age limit, Kaban explains that the children need to be old enough to have the skills and comprehension needed to ensure everyone’s safety. The members will generally bring bows that are suitable for young children, but it is encouraged for those who are able to bring their own equipment for the youth to use. According to Hauch, towns are often having problems with children not having anything to do in the evenings, especially in small towns. In helping make this group
come to life, he hoped to change that. This group gives something for both adults and children to do together, as well as provide a safe place for kids to get some hands on education in a skill that can be useful later on in life. “People are always saying there’s nothing for the kids, here’s something that’s running through the winter to the end of the school year,” explains Hauch. As well as mentoring the students on archery, they also learn vital
information on safety. The Fish and Game Association also sponsors youth to go to wilderness camps, and outdoor survival camps throughout the year. The adult shoot holds an opportunity for the more experienced shooters to practice, and have a good time amongst themselves. Although there were mostly youth at this shoot, there were still a good number of adults who stayed to shoot after the youth were gone.

Mundare students enjoy author’s presentation Award winning Kenneth Oppel proves to be a total delight for both students and teachers alike at Mundare School Tuesday, Sept. 25th was no regular day at Mundare School as it hosted award winning author Kenneth Oppel. Hailing from Toronto, and heading out West on a 10 day tour, with 26 presentations to put under his belt, he kicked off his tour in Mundare. We were very lucky to have such a popular and talented author of his calibre come to visit us and were a little intimidated and awed by the credentials and the large body of his work. Oppel has won such prestigious titles as the Governor General’s Award for children’s literature, the Michael L. Printz Honour Book Award from the American Library Association, and both the Canadian Library Association’s Book of the Year for Children Award as well as their Young Adult Book Award — the first time in the award’s history the same title has
won both honours! A prolific author, he has penned books for young children (Peg and the Yeti, The Kings’s Taster), Early Chapter books ( the Barnes and the Brains series) and a number of books for young adult readers including the Silverwing series, the steampunk genre Airborne series and his latest efforts, the first two books of a series revolving around the life of a 16 year old Victor Frankenstein , This Dark Endeavour, and Such Wicked Intent. These are books that, because of Oppel’s thrilling narratives, which are packed with romance, alchemy and mystery, seldom see the shelves of our school library. Even Hollywood has taken notice of their popularity and both Airborne and This Dark Endeavour have been optioned to become major motion pictures.
STORY AND PHOTO BY SIAN VADNAIS
Mundare School students thoroughly enjoyed the recent presentation by prolific author Kenneth Oppel who personally signed copies of his latest novel for students. “Endeavour” is set to be Produced by Summit Entertainment (who also produced the Twilight movies) and will be Directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) . Having said all of this, we were delighted to find Mr. Oppel a down to earth, approachable, respectful, insightful and funny gentleman. No special requests for this Canadian literary celebrity, just a glass of tap water and a table to
sign copies of his books for the kids (and grown up fans too). Ken (as he likes to be addressed) gave two marvelous presentations aimed at two completely different age groups, and kept the groups, their teachers and other staff members and guests thoroughly entertained. Proving that his talent lies hidden not just behind the pages of a book or in computer archives, Oppel present-
ed like a pro using music, slide shows, book trailers, skill testing questions for book giveaways and a personal and fascinating insight into his own history. He went on to describe how a book, and in some cases the illustrations (see Peg and the Yeti, illustrated by Barbara Reid) , come to be. Hands were raised and quite interesting questions asked at the closing of each session until
finally our guest had to call an end to them so he could move on to book signings and the next session. To the thrill of many awestruck students (some of whom are aspiring writers) he gave not just a signed book to covet, but some great writing advice to apply to their work! “Don’t stop writing, write about anything, then re-write and rewrite again and don’t give-up.” Being a father of 3 kiddos, he knows that encouragement and positivity play a HUGE part in success, no matter what your goals. He shared his enthusiasm for not only his craft, but for children and for life, and I believe that many of us came away that morning with smiles on our faces and dreams that writing the Great Canadian Novel might just be possible.

Heartland to reap financial benefits Federal program to contribute $22,100 to attract foreign investment The Honourable Tim Uppal, Minister of State for Democratic Reform and Member of Parliament for Edmonton and Sherwood Park, and Leon Benoit, Member of Parliament for Vegreville - Wainwright, on behalf of the Honourable Ed Fast, Minister of International Trade and Minister for the Asia-Pacific Gateway, announced that Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association is receiving $22,100 to help attract, retain and expand foreign direct investment in Fort Saskatchewan and Strathcona County. “This means good jobs and a stronger economy for the people of this area,” stated Fast. “Our government is focused on what matters to Canadians: jobs, growth and long-term prosperity,” added Fast. “Attracting foreign investment is key to these efforts, and our government will continue to take steps to ensure Canada remains an investment destination of choice. “From the lowest overall tax rate on new business investment in the G-7 to what the World Economic Forum has said for the past five years is the world’s soundest banking system, our government continues to create the conditions needed to attract the global investors who create jobs and new sources of economic growth and prosperity in our communities.” “Through the Alberta Industrial Heartland Association’s great work to promote and develop our region, we are one of the world’s most attractive locations for chemical, petrochemical, oil and gas investment,”said Uppal. “Today, our government is pleased to announce this $22,100 in additional funding to help create more local jobs and economic growth in our community” “Funding for Alberta’s Industrial Heartland helps Fort
Saskatchewan and Strathcona County seek out new foreign direct investment opportunities,” said MP Benoit. “Both the federal government and municipalities share the objective of bringing new investment to communities across Canada. That is why we are proud to support activities by Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association to attract investment. In
these globally challenging times, we will continue to support initiatives that help bring jobs and prosperity to the people of Fort Saskatchewan and Strathcona County.” The funding received on October 1, is provided under the Invest Canada-Community Initiatives (ICCI) program. The ICCI program is designed to help com-
munities, organizations and economic development agencies across the country attract, retain and expand foreign direct investment. The program, which began in 2006, supports municipalities, nonprofit organizations and public-private groups at the local level and works through partnerships and cost-sharing arrangements.
Lamont Fire Chief John Helton recently accepted an $800 cheque from Lamont Lions Club President Lorri Tarka. The funds will be used to help purchase a new oxygen tank.

Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village blooms before judges Communities In Bloom program exemplified through art exhibit and lush gardens and flower beds at historic site Michelle Pinon Editor
David Makowsky couldn't be prouder. The head of community and corporate relations for the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village and fellow colleagues are pleased to announce that it has received five blooms in the Communities in Bloom (CIB) attractions category. "We feel fortunate to have worked with Kalyna Country Ecomuseum and the Ukrainian P i o n e e r s ' Association of Alberta to present Kurelek from the Community: An Autobiography Through His Art and Writing." "This one time art exhibit featured original and limited edition artwork by renowned Canadian artist William Kurelek, and highlighted his Ukrainian and east central Alberta roots (he was born in what is today Kalyna Country). We also appreciate how this CIB award recognized the community support that our living history received this past summer, particularly from private individuals and institutions who loaned their original and limited edition artwork for this one-time exhibit. It has turned out to be the largest presented at the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village." In addition to the five bloom rating, the village received special mention for the exhibit during recent awards ceremonies in Edmonton. Following their evaluation of the community, volunteer judges Lucy Chang and Ed Toop wrote: "In 2012 the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village partnered with the Kalyna County Ecomuseum and the Ukrainian Pioneers Association of Alberta to present a collection of artwork by renowned Canadian artist William Kurelek. Born near Whitford, Alberta, in
1927, Kurelek is most famous for his depictions of Ukrainian pioneer lifestyles, which have a universal appeal for those growing up on the prairies. The strength of this art exhibit is the fact that all of the artwork has been loaned from private and institutional collections, making this truly a one-time art exhibit." CIB is a national
organization dedicated to the promotion of green spaces in community settings. Within the actual context of climate changes and environmental concerns, communities involved in the program can be proud of their efforts, which provide real and meaningful environmental solutions and benefit all of society," added the judges.
The Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village was a beautiful tapistry of colour both outside and inside this summer with lush flowers and greenspaces, along with the vibrant brush strokes on canvas by the late William Kurelek, whose works were on display courtesy of private collectors.

Innovators attempting to forge future for industrial hemp products with technology Michelle Pinon Editor
One of the oldest fibre crops in the world may be getting a new lease on life if researchers find a way to sell producers on the idea and market innovative producers to eco-friendly consumers. “We have realized a great opportunity in these industrial hemp crops to use as major feedstock for several industries,” said Jan Slaski, plant/crop physiologist with Bioresource Technologies Alberta Innovates-Technology Futures based in Vegreville. Two years ago the company began operating the first fibre separation facility in Vegreville. Slaski has been conducting hemp selection and breeding agronomy trials, and has been very impressed with the results. “It is the second fastest growing plant on earth,” stated Slaski, during a recent presentation at the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village. “It can grow 15 centimetres per day,” added Slaski, as well as improve properties and texture in the soil. The overall objective is to produce optimal quality and quantity of product. “The goal is to secure a supply of fibre of uniform quality that’s GMO free.” Some of the new uses for hemp which dates back to the 1600’s are: hemcrete insulation, bedding for animals, garden mulch, low grade paper, fibre board, bio-fuel, and carbon capture. Slaski said some of the products which are currently on the market include: geotextiles, ropes, carpet, upholstery, paper, and vodka. “It has the potential to become a mainstream crop opportunity for Alberta farmers,” added Slaski. “It is an attractive feedstock for several major industries.” He cited automobile textiles and construction materials. “A British company is already incorporated and
setting up shop in southern Alberta.” Materials engineer John Wolodko, who is the portfolio manager for advanced materials at Alberta Innovates-Technology Futures, explained how hemp is used to make a variety of composite and construction materials as well as green bio-composites. During Wolodko’s presentation he talked about how a lot of new cars are made with these composite
materials. He told the audience about a leading edge project that was profile on the television show Daily Planet this past spring. He got to see the ‘Kestrel’; the first bio-composite bodied electric car. “The prototype is being made in Sylvan Lake.” While Woldolko and several other researchers and developers are completely sold on industrial hemp and its many and varied applications and uses, he says “success will depend on continued research and development as well as development of an integrated supply chain. A recent study completed by Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development (AARD), sponsored by
Growing Forward, a federal-provincial-territorial initiative, provides a detailed overview of the industrial hemp seed and straw uses as well as an analysis of hemp processing systems around the globe. Nevin Rosaasen, research economist with AARD, says specific emphasis was placed on developing benchmarks for farm level costs of production. “Knowing your costs of production and your relative profitability per unit of output is crucial for maintaining the long-term profitability of your farm business.” Rosaasen added that: “As a producer, you need to evaluate and adapt crop production and management information to fit your own operation, and above all, make better profit driven choices. The choices you make and the products and services you invest in must make your operation profitable. You cannot monitor or evaluate the effectiveness of something you do not measure.” So while there appears to be a tremendous opportunity for industrial hemp production and processing in Alberta, Rosaasen adds there have been a number of false starts over the years. “Many of the difficulties with industry development stem from the fact that supply chaim relationships are not yet fully developed and as a result the industry is unable to fully commit on a longer term basis. The key factor to remedy this situation is finding a stable end markets, specifically for fibre based products.” “There are significant efforts underway to further refine fibre processing technology. These efforts, when combined with those tareting the development of markets for seed, fibre and hurd, will be of critical importance to the sector. If these activities help to either increase competitiveness by reducing cost of production and/or increase potential markets, the benefits to Alberta could be significant,” added Rosaasen.

Bruderheim CIB volunteers celebrate season of success
Communities in Bloom volunteers had a great time at the national award ceremonies. From left to right are:Bob Cote, Mary Ellen Boyle, Judy Koschade, Sherry Cote, Wayne Olechow and Carolyne Olechow.
Town gets four blooms in national contest Michelle Pinon Editor
Sherry Cote and fellow volunteers with the B r u d e r h e i m Communities in Bloom (CIB) committee are very proud and excited to have been awarded a rating of four blooms for its participation in the national contest. "We are excited and wanted to share the information with all our residents who work hard to maintain their personal property," stated Cote. "The most gratifying part of the competition was hosting a group of CIB volunteers from around the world in our community, sharing ideas and our Heritage Gardens and Heritage Trails," commented Cote. "The visiting groups were fascinated with the
recycled tire benches and walkway in addition to seeing how our heritage was used on signs along the walking trails and in the flower gardens." As to next year's plans? Cote said the committee will be focusing on urban forestry, and a new raised bed in the community garden and general tidiness of the community. The town also received special mention for its Evergreen 25 year management plan during the awards ceremonies on Oct. 12 and 13th in Edmonton. Following their evaluation of the community in July, volunteer CIB judges Lucy Chang and Roger Younker wrote: "Bruderheim is on the verge of increased economic activity. Many
newcomers are attracted by the promising job opportunities in the industrial heartland. Bruderheim is thus preparing for an increase in population with many new young families settling in the area. The 25 year management plan now includes looking after the environment by providing clean water, clean air, increased green spaces, environmentally friendly facilities and services. The local council is primed and ready to provide a friendly, sustainable living environment for those potential energy sector workers and their families, who choose to call Bruderheim their home."

Andrew Wildcats host annual volleyball tourney Girls win gold, boys get silver in fun-filled tournament Michelle Pinon Editor Cory Kokatailo couldn't be happier. The athletic director for Andrew School was very happy with the fourth annual edition of the Wildcat Invitational Oct. 19 and 20th. Everything ran
smoothly, and Kokotailo was pleased with the high school students who coached, refereed, and kept score throughout the two day tourney. "I am lucky to have high school students who coach my teams and do an amazing job with the players. It is also
great that all my referees and scorekeepers were high school students as well. They ran the tournament, almost every aspect of it, and I cannot thank them enough for all their dedication and support." Overall, Kokatailo said the weekend was "fantastic;" and while the
junior boys were disappointed with their loss in the final, he added,
"They played amazing." The girls also played amazing, and managed
to win gold against the squad from Mundare.
Members of the gold medal winning team were delighted with their impressive performances. Back row (left to right): Coach Kaitlyn Bodnarek, Tasha Snyder, Mykayla Nurse, Cassie Melenka, Kalahya Sidor, and Alyshia Bryks.

INFORMATION BULLETIN October 11, 2012 Property owners ordered to stop unauthorized changes to waterways Edmonton... The Alberta government has issued an Enforcement Order under the Water Act against two property owners in northeastern Alberta. In response to a public complaint, Environment and Sustainable Resource Development visited a property in Mackenzie County near Fort Vermillion on September 24 and found the owners had used a backhoe to alter watercourses without proper authorization. Department staff notified them that alteration of a watercourse requires approval under the Water Act and instructed them to immediately stop. On a subsequent visit, staff observed the property owners again working in a watercourse with a backhoe. An aerial tour on October 5 uncovered fresh ground disturbances along two watercourses on the property, indicating additional alterations had occurred. Under the terms of the Enforcement Order, Daniel and Katherina Fehr must immediately cease any activities in or near the watercourses without prior written authorization. Environment and Sustainable Resource Development staff will work with other agencies to assess the damages to the watercourses. The damage assessment will determine the type and extent of remedial work that must be done to repair the watercourses. Environment and Sustainable Resource Development focuses on education, prevention and enforcement to ensure all Albertans continue to enjoy a clean and healthy environment. When individuals or companies fail to comply with legislation, a number of options are available depending on the offence to ensure compliance with environmental regulations. In this case, the Enforcement Order will ensure immediate action is taken to prevent further damage to the area.
