Terry Fox legacy continues to live in the hearts of Lamont and area residents Locals celebrate 25th anniversary in community by raising $10,943 Michelle Pinon Editor “Thank you for making a difference and keeping Terry’s dream alive.” Those were the words brother Fred Fox wrote on one of the Terry Fox Run posters he gave to organizers of the Lamont event following a special banquet this past

Wednesday. The heartfelt words of encouragement held special meaning to coorganizer Mike Klita, who attended the gala with Deb Dunsmore, who has her own personal connection to the Fox family. Dunsmore, who lived in the same subdivision as the Fox family, met Fred’s wife Teresa at the Maple Ridge Golden

Seniors Curling Club. Both were young mothers at the time. While Deb knew Teresa’s brother-in-law had passed away, it wasn’t until years later she made the connection when she went to visit their home and saw a portrait of Terry in the foyer. “I was telling Mike about the connection, and he invited me to

come to the gala which she described as an intimate affair, and one where several young women spoke passionately about Terry Fox and the legacy that has carried on for more than 30 years. “It was good to see Fred and reminisce again,” added Deb. Sept. 16th marked the 32nd annual Terry Fox Run, and marked the 25th year Lamont has participated in the event

which nows spans the globe. “It’s truly a community event,” stated Nadine Skitsko, who helped canvas local businesses for support of her son and co-organizer Shanon, who was out on the combine this past week. “I ran around town pretending to be Shanon,” joked Nadine, who was very moved by the support she received. “The most important thing is how the community came together,” added Nadine, who was moved by the generous outpouring of support. “It just brings tears to your eyes.” Deb, who moved to Lamont three years ago with her husband Mic, has nothing but admiration for Terry Fox, and his family, pointing out that it was Betty Fox who set up the non-profit foundation, which is entirely dedicated to cancer research. “She (Betty) wanted to keep her son’s dream alive.” So has Deb, and many other Lamont and area residents, for the past 25 years. “We’ve kept his legacy alive all by volunteer donations,” added Mike proudly, before participants embarked on the run shortly after 1 p.m. Sunday afternoon.

New technology equips Elk Island students and parents with latest information tools Jazmine Inkster Student reporter

The 2012/2013 school year brought about a brand new change of technology in the Elk Island transportation system. The most prominent application of this technology is the introduction of the brand new Versatrans “My Stop” program. Students from schools all over Elk Island Public School District are now expected to scan their bus passes every time they enter and exit the bus. Busses from Elk Island Public School’s 170 bus routes are now equipped with scanners, and the information collected

will then be used to help both students and parents access a live online GPS program which will allow them to track the approximate location of a specific bus at any time during the travel route. EIPS Director of Communication Services Heather Massel explains ìThe online system shows where the bus is relative to the students bus stop, but the online system does not ‘track students’. EIPS is the first in Canada to try out this new program, which comes with a $260,000 price tag; and the results taken from this first year will help other school districts learn about the effectiveness and effi-

ciency of this new use of technology in the transportation of students. The program however will only be available to those school districts who are already using Versatrans as their route planning software. Along with the ability to keep track of the bus’ approximate location for parents and students, the GPS also provides a number of important safety features for Elk Island transportation. Such as notifying workers of a bus’ mechanical condition, as well as alerting bus drivers and route planners if a student has gotten on the bus at a stop that is not usual for them. While not all of this

information will be available to parents and students through the online program, the information they are able to access is seen as a great benefit to those involved. “Parents appreciate the peace of mind, and students appreciate the convenience and real time information especially if they or the bus is running late,”states Massel. “For instance, if it’s really cold outside or snowing, or raining, and the bus is delayed, we don’t have students outside for an extended period of time in inclement weather. This is especially beneficial in Alberta where we encounter inclement

weather throughout the year, especially in winter.” Also incorporated into this year’s new safety features, is an aspect called the ‘Child Check Mate System.’ This system uses both an alarm and a motion sensor to ensure that at the end of the run, there are no children remaining on the bus. “To set the alarm at the end of their run, the bus driver has to go to the back of the bus, open the back door and then close it. As they walk to the front of the bus they can double-check to make sure there aren’t any students still on the bus. The motion sensor would also alert us if

there was any movement on the bus after the alarm was enabled.” All of this technology is still in its testing phase, but is so far showing great success, and will hopefully able to be used by students and parents across EIPS by October as everything gets ironed out. Elk island transportation hopes to provide peace of mind for parents, in knowing that their students are as safe as possible as they travel to and from their school. This technology will help to achieve that, and will also help ensure that students are able to get to their destination as easily as possible.

Memories of Harvest It was such a beautiful evening. Textbook perfect in fact. The sun warmed my skin. The air was thick with dust and I could hear the distant drone of engines from the swathers, combines, and grain trucks working in neighbouring fields. My mind drifted back to childhood when I would sit on the porch and watch my dad combining in the field to the south of the house. The weather, sights, smells and sounds were exactly the same last night as the September evenings of my youth. I always remember feeling so joyful and appreciative during harvest time; the gratifying feeling of knowing all was going well and that the fruits of the labour would soon come to fruition. It was a special time. One of my favourite memories was having supper in the field. While it was a lot of extra work for my mother, the food tasted so much better out in the elements. I could hardly wait to finish eating so I could get to go a round or two in the field with dad. I would hold onto the side of the drivers arm rest to brace myself while the powerful machine devoured the swaths. While most of today’s combines have air conditioning, I still miss having the wind blowing in my face, and being able to turn my body around to see the grain filling up the hopper. I was perched so high it was as if I was standing on top of the world. My dad turned 85 recently. He occasionally reminisces about his days of yore when he worked on a threshing crew. He recalls the back breaking labour that was required as well as the delicious meals that he ate in the field, as well as the wonderful sense of comaraderie and community that was shared and nurtured. Horse and wagon gave way to modern machinery. While some traditions remain intact, others have gone by the wayside, but one thing remains the same; the thankfulness I feel for the farmers who feed the world physically, mentally, and spiritually. Without the farmers we would have nothing and be nothing; so many thanks to the farmers of the past and present, and prayers for a bountiful future.

Lamont Figure Skating Club getting ready for a new and exciting season Tracy Harding Staff Writer

The Lamont Figure Skating Club held their annual general meeting and early registration on Wednesday, Sept. 12. At the end of the evening it looks like the season is going to be a good year, and a busy one. Registration numbers are increased, and all skaters new and returning are excited to get out on the frozen rink. The club will be running the same programs as prior years, with Kidskate, Canskate and Starskate, and numbers are up in all three programs. The Kidskate program is directed for the skaters that have never skated before, and can start as young as two and a half years of age. In this program, the skaters will start learning the basics of skating, like falling down and getting up, balance position, walking forward and backwards on the ice, and mainly to be able to stay on their feet. Where the

speed of these skaters isn't the highest, the go as fast as their legs can take them by the end of the season. Canskate is for those

This year the skaters in Starskate will get the opportunity to participate in a few competitions throughout the season, if they are wanting to. There will be one in Edmonton, as well as a

couple across the province. Plus the Ice Show that the club puts on each year is already being discussed in the beginning stages.

Lamont County approves purchase of mobile trailer Photos by Lois Zyla

On Sept. 10 the Classroom on Wheels bus rolled into Mundare Town Complex to talk about family literacy. Children from zero to six were entertained throughout the afternoon. A play dough table, bean bag toss and glitter tatoos were enjoyed by the children. A delicious snack was served as well. This service was provided free of charge as well as 50 new childrens books were donated to the library. The program is very educational, and start the young ones enjoying books and reading at a young age. Tracy Harding Staff Writer At the Lamont County Council meeting held on Tuesday, September 11, Harold Hamilton had put a request in to purchase an emergency sign trailer. This request comes from the experience of the fatal accident on Highway 29 and Range Road 184 that took place on September 1. The public works crew realized that their response time was lacking when emergencies come up, having to scramble for signs, stands and barricades. “It is difficult for one person to load barricades by themselves into a pick up truck, “ states Hamilton. With the purchase of a trailer public works will have the ability to have the barricades and signs preloaded, and ready to go at all times. This would improve the response time of public works to assist the fire department and RCMP in emergencies. “After working for seven years with emergency response, I know how important response time is, and you want to be able to do a good job,” says Hamilton. There are two different trailers that Hamilton had brought for a example of what they are planning on purchasing, ranging in price between $3,300 and $3,900. the motion was passed unanimously to go ahead with the purchase.

PUBLIC NOTICE

SASOL CANADA HOLDINGS LIMITED CANADA GAS TO LIQUIDS PROJECT

Proposed Terms of Reference for Environmental Impact Assessment Sasol Canada Holdings Limited is seeking approval to construct and operate the Canada Gas to Liquids (GTL) Project in Fort Saskatchewan located in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland approximately 40 km northeast of Edmonton, Alberta. The Project area comprises approximately 526 hectares in Township 55 Range 21 W4M covering all or portions of Section 17, 18, 19 and 20 in Strathcona County. Sasol Canada Holdings Limited holds the option to purchase these lands from the current owner Total E&P Canada. Subject to regulatory approval, the proposed GTL facility will convert natural gas to GTL liquid fuels. The proposed GTL facility has a nominal design capacity (defined as an approximation of the projected facility capacity) of 96 000 barrels per day (BPD) of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), GTL Naphtha and GTL Diesel. A phased approach will be adopted in the construction of the GTL facility. Each of the two proposed phases are equivalent to a nominal design capacity of 48 000 BPD. Due to local circumstances such as gas composition and local fuel specifications, it is anticipated that the nominal designed facility will be able to achieve up to an instantaneous production capacity of 103 900 barrels per stream day (BPSD), (51 950 BPSD per phase) of liquid fuels.

Local producers crossing their fingers for good harvest weather conditions in Lamont County Michelle Pinon Editor

I was wondering how the harvesting was going in Lamont County? While the recent bit of rain has put a bit of a damper on Terry Eleniak’s harvest, he estimates that around thirtyfive per cent of harvesting has been completed to date in the county. “If we get a nice two week stretch here then a lot could get done.” If the good weather holds, the Lamont Ag. Fieldman said there would be a lot of heavy truck traffic on the country roads heading to the grain bins or elevators. Most of the recent activity has been on canola crops, with a lot of it going into the dryers to dry out. There are sev-

eral variables when it comes to harvesting canola, and the Alberta Canola Council recommends a minimum of 10 days to go through the curing process in the swaths to allow enough time for ripening of the seeds. Eleniak estimates that around 95 per cent of peas have been harvested, pointing out that many producers had to swath and combine instead of straight cut because of the challenging moisture conditions. While Eleniak and other producers in Lamont County are trying to play catch up, he hopes ideal weather conditions will prevail in the coming weeks. Now all that’s let to do is to cross the fingers.

Church museum celebrates anniversary Michelle Pinon Editor

PHOTOS BY MICHELLE PINON

The Moravian Church Museum in Bruderheim will be celebrating its fourth anniversary this Sunday afternoon. Everyone is welcome to attend the celebration which includes a concert by the Revive Gospel Singers. Elmer plays the portable reed organ near the alter.

Elmer and Margaret Prochnau, longtime parishoners and supporters of the Moravian Church Museum in Bruderheim, will be among several people who will be celebrating its anniversary next Sunday, Sept. 23rd. The Prochnaus also hope other community members and county residents will attend the fourth anniversary of the church museum. The celebration will kickoff at 2:30 p.m. Famous for their music, the museum will be hosting a concert with the Revive Gospel Singers. The Moravian Church was established in 1895, and officially became a museum in 2008. Elmer, who came from a family of 15, has many fond memories of the church and many of the celebrations that have been held over its long and illustrious history. “It’s probably the oldest church in the county,” says Elmer, who loves to play the reed organ every chance he gets. While small in size, the portable bench reed organ, can produce a great deal of sound. Elmer presses his legs against two metal pieces to increase and decrease the amount of sound that is amplified. He plays his favourite hymn: Sing Hallelujah, Praise the Lord. Later on, Elmer and his wife Margaret, on the church’s Gourlay Piano, play a beautiful duet. They are very happy the history of the church, and its first settlers, have been preserved for all time. Throughout the museum, there are artifacts from other Edmonton area Moravian churches, which adds to the character and charm of the historic house of worship. The roots of the Moravian Church date back more than 1,000 years. Officially known as the Unitas Fratrum or Unity Brethen, was organized in Bohemia in 1457 before the Reformation. In 1957, more than 293,000 members of the Moravian Church marked the 500th anniversary of this Protestant denomination whose roots go back to John Hus. They were dedicated to peace, and suffered severe persecution, before fleeing to Poland. In 1722, new hope was given to the church by Count Ludwig von Zinzendorf, a walthy Lutheran nobleman who invited them to build homes on his estate in eastern Saxony. The first of its missionaries were sent out to the West Indies, and more remote areas. As a consequence, there are nearly three times as many Moravians in the mission field churches as there are in the United States and Europe. The Central Moravian Church in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania is the mother church in the Northern Province of the United States, and was built in the early 1800s. The Prochnaus say they have been very fortunate to have visited that church. Due to sheer determination, and by the grace of God, Andreas Lilge founded the Moravian Colony northeast of Edmonton. According to its history, Lilge was able to arrange for 100 Volhynian families immigration status. “The first major contingents of immigrants arrived in May and June of 1894, and one year later, Lilge had them settled and had organized not one, but two congregations: the Bruderheim Moravian Church, and near south Edmonton, the Bruderfeld Moravian Church. Lilge had a colourful and checkered past, with several situations and cirumstances which led him to becoming a Lutheran pastor more than 12 years after establishing the colony in the area. The last preserved letter of Lilge was written and dated in 1914. Elmer says a lot of the church’s history has been preserved thanks to the efforts of several of its ministers over the years. Church services in the Bruderheim Moravian Church, originally Lilge’s log home, ceased in 1995 when a new Christian Education centre was dedicated.

The Leliuk family Division 2. The acreage recipients, Earl & Lucille Thompson were unable to join us on the tour that day but were gracious enough to let us stop in

property. Over the years he has maintained a team of horses, farmed the area with his sons and enjoyed volunteering at the Ukrainian

The Lysyk family at their yard for a quick look around. Earl and Lucille purchased the acreage in 1979 and began from bare land with hardly a tree on it. They have developed it into a very attractive yardsite. Our final stop on the tour was at the home of Roy Reinhardt. Roy purchased the land in 1946 after serving his country during World War II. Roy and his family planted many of the wellestablished trees on the

Cultural Heritage Village in his spare time. He has managed to maintain the yard and large garden

along with assisting his sons with the farming operations. Roy, along with his daughters Sharon and husband Barry, Marilyn and husband Russell and son Barry were presented the award by Division 2 Councillor, Wayne Woldanski. I could not have asked for a better day concerning the weather and everyone that we travelled with during the Farmstead Beautification Tour. I enjoyed the opportunity to meet all of you! On behalf of Lamont County, I would like to thank each of the recipients and their families for the wonderful hospitality throughout the day! Each recipient who received this award was more than deserving of it. We appreciate all of your hard work put in to maintain such beautiful and unique yardsites.

4-H Elk Island Light Horse Summer Fun Submitted by 4H Elk Island Light Horse Club As summer winds to a close the 4-H Elk Island Light Horse Club would like to get everyone excited about our c o m i n g year! Club members have been doing a lot of individual riding on these beautiful summer days and enjoyed some amazing club activities. On June 23 we had our Achievement Day. The morning was spent showing off the accomplishment of our project goals, followed by lunch and a long trail ride at Blackfoot Recreational Area and a wiener roast. The next day we enjoyed a tour of Northland's before expe-

riencing some thoroughbred racing. We weren't very good at picking winners but we capped off a great day with pizza. Our last riding lesson

was June 26. Everyone enjoyed lessons this year and we learned a lot and saw a great improvement in our riding skills. It will be great to get back to them in the fall. One of the best experiences of the 4-H year is regional Horse Camp. It was held August 15 to 18 at the Vermilion Agricultural grounds. We spent about five

hours a day on horseback trying out things like roping, equitation, trail, gymkhana, reining, and drill team. We also got the chance to meet members from other clubs, play games, go swimming, and learn about horse care and provincial 4H programs. The weather was beautiful, but by late afternoon riders and mounts were sweaty and tired. We handed out new club jackets to show off in the cooler evenings. On August 28 we met to clean up the club room at Walker School. That was a good excuse for lunch and a fun ride. If you have any questions call Cindy 780-3633772 or Jana 780-7962473.

Members of the 4-H Elk Island Light Horse Club enjoy time spent together both outside and inside of the show ring. They are looking forward to this upcoming year, and are hoping to attract new members to the fold.

CN gives all clear signal to repair railway crossings in Town of Lamont

LEADER

Michelle Pinon

THE LAMONT

Editor

Sandi Maschmeyer, acting chief administrative officer for the town, informed council at its Sept. 11 meeting that CN is planning on doing the repairs to these crossings before the middle of October. That was the assurance Maschmeyer received in an email from Warren Chandler from CN on Aug. 29. Chandler then stated that: “My engineering colleagues are aware of the crossing concerns and have a plan in place to address it. Weather permitting they will be out in Lamont to upgrade these crossings before the middle of October.”

The town pays a monthly maintenance fee of $236 to CN for the railway crossing on the west end of town.
