Nationalization Arthur Beaudette News Advertiser - Opinion Now that Canada owns a pipeline and a pipeline expansion project, there are questions as to what is next. I have expressed my opinion that we would not be in this situation if it were not for major failings of our federal government. However, I do not agree with those who vehemently oppose the Canadian government owning a pipeline. Those who do, feel that it is somehow unthinkable and the government has no place in owning this type of infrastructure. When you look at other major oil producers, many DO have state-owned oil infrastructure rather than the Canadian and US models of privatization. In fact, of the top 10 oil producing countries in the world, less than half have privatized development and there has been a trend for re-nationalization in many regions. Looking back, this culture of privatization was not always the case for Canada. We once had significant publicly owned, revenue-producing infrastructure. One can only think that it was either shortsightedness by governments of the day or the value proposition of cashing in after public life that has lead to the mass sell-off of these assets in the last 50 - 60 years.

Names like Nova, AGT (Telus), Epcor, MTS, Ontario Hydro (Hydro One), Petro Canada and others are reminders of the vast wealth that our governments have decided to sell off. In 2012, the research found that over 70% of oil sands production is owned by foreign-based companies. One only needs to look at a country like Norway as an example of a well managed, state-owned petroleum industry. The fifth largest oil exporter in the world, Norway can boast being the world’s fourth richest country by GDP. Unlike Russia and the Middle East where oil revenues make those in power ridiculously wealthy while its citizens wait with cap in hand, Norway has developed a strict system to intelligently manage its resources and the revenue it brings. Something I’m not sure we have seen in North America in a very long time. By 2020, some estimates put Norway’s sovereign fund in the range of $1 Trillion. The government not only actively manages this fund but also re-invests it locally to diversify the economy so they do not feel the boom and bust of oil and also prepare for a future when oil is not generating the cash

Dear Editor, Is 2018 truly the “Year of the Dog?” It would seem that China is a place of beauty and culture but a country hiding a dark secret that would astonish and disgust even the most hard-hearted. June 21 will mark the 8th anniversary of the annual Yulin Dog Meat Festival, a 10-day event beginning on the summer solstice. Thousands of dogs will be boiled, skinned, torched WHILE STILL ALIVE, hanged, beaten, paws hacked off, and crying in agony as people cheer on the butchers. The majority are stolen pets. This horrific event has absolutely no religious or ceremonial value. Too often, I have heard this is part of the Chinese culture. 100% NOT TRUE! It was a political perversion, not a culture that led to the torture and widespread consumption of dogs in China. Here’s today’s history lesson in China’s love for dogs. From 1644 to 1912 when the Qing Dynasty reigned and the Manchu were in charge, dogs were revered and beloved more than any other creature on earth. Manchu’s first chief, Nurharchi, ordered that no dog should be killed for their meat or fur---not skinned and boiled alive as they are today---after his life was saved by a dog. He stated: “In the mountains, there are so many kinds of animals which you can hunt for food, but from now on, no one is allowed to eat dogs nor wear dog skin. When dogs die, they should be buried because dogs can read man’s emotion and can rescue their

Compiled by Dan Beaudette

90 Years Ago – June 13, 1928

The C.P.R. held a sale of town lots at Willingdon on Monday, June 11th. The Observer is advised that quite a number of lots were sold, mostly to those who had “squatted” awaiting the formal disposition of the lots. $22,000.00 cash was realized from the sale, while some lots were also bought on the time bases. Nick Kuzz of Vegreville is said to be the owner of one of the $400 lots in Willingdon. Plans are underway for the consolidation of the Soda Lake and Berhometh school districts with the intention of constructing a six roomed school building at Hairy Hill town. Whether or not construction can be commenced this year is uncertain, but it is likely that a start will be make. Two of the rooms are to be allotted for high school purposes. At a recent town council meeting the chairman of the public works stated that it was useless to continue to make repairs to plank sidewalks and that it had to be recognized that replacement of all such had to be carried out in the very near future.

Sgt. A.E. McGregor of the Women’s Division; R.C.A.F. was in town recently on a recruiting trip; She stated that women are urgently needed to release men who are eligible for aircrew duties, and there are many opportunities for women to serve in fascination trades upon completion of training. Farmers who enlisted in the army during the current crop year may deliver their 1942 wheat without regard to quota limitations. To date, 700 have taken advantage of this privilege and delivered 485,000 bushels of wheat in excess of their quotas. Among the graduates of the Officer’s Training School at Gordon Head B.C. last week E.R. Horton of Vegreville, is listed as having received his commission as a second lieutenant. Red was overseas for over three years and returned this spring to attend this school.

50 Years Ago – June 13, 1968

An offer from the Town of Vermilion to purchase the present radar speed meter was accepted by the Town of Vegreville council. A more efficient model will be purchased for use in Vegreville. The Vegreville 4-H Beef Club held its annual show and sale on Wednesday, June 5 at the Exhibition Grounds. A total of 38 calves were sold with an average price of 28 1/2c. The Champion calf was exhibited by Ken Eberhardt and the Reserve by Rebecca Ziegler. Vegreville home building is progressing at a rapid pace with a total of $139,600 in building permits issued till the end of May, 1968 compared with $203,150 issued during the same period in 1967. Twenty home are under construction in Vegreville in 1968, compared with six to the same time last year. The annual Inspection of the Vegreville Cadet Corps was held at the Centennial Building last Wednesday when Cadet Training officer Lt. Bennett of Edmonton and Terry Soldan, President of the Vegreville Branch Royal Canadian Legion passed through the ranks and made presentations of awards to the top cadets. Rapeseed oil is the newest cooking oil available to Canadian homemakers. In baking tests done in the Home Economists Department, University of Manitoba, rapeseed compared favorably with other cooking oils. Town of Vegreville council was reminded that merchants are not happy with the situation regarding the dis-continuance of garbage pick-up on Saturdays. A short while ago town employees went on a five day week which affected the service.

25 Years Ago – June 15, 1993

The fiscal realities of rural education have prompted area school boards to start talking about regionalizing their operations. School officials from Two Hills and the Minburn County and Catholic boards had their first meeting on the topic June 2. Vegreville Catholic School district chairperson Olga Stoyko was on hand to cut the ribbon of the official re-opening of the St. Martin’s School. Holding the ribbon was the youngest student at St. Martin’s – Christopher McRae and a former trustee Punch Tetreau at the other end. Vegreville fire fighters were tested for their practical knowledge of hose handling and water management on June 7. The volunteers had already completed a written test for the level two fire fighter certificate. An officer from the St. Paul office of fire prevention times the three crews on this test, which started a block from the hydrant and included laying about a block of hose fron the back of the truck, hooking to the hydrant, and getting water to three supply hoses. St. Martin’s students of the month for May are Brandi Gibbs for grade seven and Lindsey Cooper for grade eight. Brandi has been a student at St. Martin’s for the past eight years. Lindsey was born in Slave Lake but has also been at St. Martin’s for eight years.

Poll: Albertans say “NO” to Bailout for UofA Colin Craig Canadian Taxpayers Association The Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) released poll results today that show 65 per cent of Albertans oppose a government bailout for the University of Alberta if its donations continue to suffer due to its decision to give David Suzuki a honourary degree. (University of Alberta Credit: Jpluofa/Wikipedia) “The university should take note that Albertans don’t support bailing it out if it proceeds with giving a honourary degree to antiAlberta activist David Suzuki,” said CTF Alberta Director Colin Craig. “Suzuki is a guy that routinely attacks Alberta’s energy industry while flying all over the world and telling Canadians to watch their carbon footprint. He’s the last person the university should recognize. The CTF’s poll was conducted by Ipsos between May 22-28 among 800 Albertans (margin of error of ±3.5 per cent). Results from the poll included: “Before today, had you heard that the University of Alberta plans to award David Suzuki with a honourary doctorate degree

Over forty per cent of Alberta’s population will have a worsened view of the university if it proceeds with the award.”

Member Appreciation Day at Vegreville Co-op

Emily Mailhot Reporter – Vegreville News Advertiser Member Appreciation Day festivities were held in the Vegreville Co-op store and parking lot throughout the day on June 8, to show appreciation for all the dedicated members of the Vegreville Co-op, who continually bring business to the store. The appreciation day started off sweetly, with free coffee and doughnuts for everyone who stopped in at the store. There were free giveaways in the store, with the Country 106.5 wheel of gifts run by Ally. A big sale in camping food items was available store-wide throughout the day… and even if these things were celebratory enough, the Vegreville & District Co-op wanted to really show their members their appreciation. Outside the store, the CALS Breakfast Club served $3 beef-on-a-bun, donated by the Co-op, and the Vegreville Iron Runners Auto Club held a mini-show in the parking lot with the classic cars of a few of their members. To give the day-long appreciation party a festive touch, the Vegreville News Advertiser Wavy-Man was set up to dance in the parking lot. William Smolak, President of the Iron Runners said, “We would like to thank co-op for giving us the opportunity to put our cars on display. They are great hosts, and we hope the people enjoyed coming out to look at these old beasts.”

Store manager Glen McLay declined to make a personal comment on the day, choosing instead to let the festivities of the day speak for himself and the Vegreville & District Co-op, a clear “We appreciate you, we are glad for your partnership,” in all the benefits, gifts, and activities in the parking lot and store for the steady stream of happy customers from beginning to end.

Out For a Rip

S/Sgt Jerry Nutbrown Vegreville RCMP It is that time of year again and to quote a somewhat famous internet video, many people enjoy going ‘out for a rip’! I am going to focus on off-road vehicles this week

as we are getting complaints about this leisure time activity. Off-road vehicles include side-bysides, motorcycles, quads, dune buggies, snowmobiles, etc. Obviously, snowmobiles aren’t that common at this time of year, however, people will grass race these and now with conversion kits available, snowmobiles can be driven in the summer. An off-road vehicle is

essentially a motorized mode of transport designed for cross-country travel. So unless your 1969 Subaru 360 or Daihatsu TriMobile have been modified to travel off-road, we will stick to the typical types of vehicles listed above. These vehicles are just that, vehicles, and they fall under provincial and federal laws. The provincial laws will govern their use and the federal statues cover things like a flight from police and impaired operation. These vehicles do require licensing and insurance if they are driven off private property and don’t forget your helmet and drivers license (with proper endorsements). Also, if you are caught over the legal limit on your dirt bike after consuming alcohol, you can be charged the same as driving a truck. Once you leave private property you are subject to all the requirements and laws as are typical road vehicles. A caution to those that may think of taking off from a Peace Officer when they are pulling you over, don’t. As these types of vehicles are usually operated close to home it does make it fairly easy for you to be identified and charged. Some will operate these vehicles in town and if they are driven appropriately and making a direct exit to the country you may not encounter any problems. We are getting complaints of these vehicles driving in places not designed for vehicles and in an unsafe or annoying (think loud muffler) manner. Once you get out of town, or if you already live in the country, please respect landowners and obtain their permission to ride on their property. Think of their fields, valleys, and waterways the same as your front yard. What I mean here is to make sure you are not damaging their property as fields are a farmer’s livelihood. What might look like minor tire tracks can cause damage and impact these landowners finan-

cially. It is easy to determine who owns the land as the county maps identify the owners but if the land is posted, please obey the signs. I know this article isn’t about to stop all riders from driving in a poor manner so if you have a problem with an off-road vehicle please try and get a photo or video of the offender. This will help us identify them and also be evidence towards whatever offense they may be committing. So now when you do go out for a rip, stay legal and stay safe.

Darryl Kropielnicki Throws his Hat in the UCP Ring Emily Mailhot Reporter – Vegreville News Advertiser On Thursday, June 7, we were able to connect with Darryl Kropielnicki of Vegreville, whose name has been put forth as a nominee and possible candidate to be the MLA of the Fort SaskatchewanVegreville constituency. Though the deadline to make United Conservative Party nominations in the Fort Saskatchewan-Vegreville Constituency passed this past Monday, June 11, Kropielnicki says he is proud to have had the honour of making that effort to be a part of the United Conservative Party and to become an advocate for his friends and neighbors in the Provincial Parliament. “With Bill 6, and with the carbon tax, I would hear stories from my friends and neighbours, and those hard times they have had to go through,” reflected Kropielnicki, “When given the chance, I felt there was no choice but to make that effort, to run for MLA as their advocate and bring their concerns and necessities to the table.” Kropielnicki was raised and went to school in Vegreville, first in the public-school system and then in the Catholic school system through High School. Growing up with a grandfather who was a county councilor, his interest in politics has been deep-seated since he was quite young in spite of the common “no politics or religion” practice surrounding coffee-shop conversation. He says that watching his friends and neighbours being impacted by recent politics (Carbon tax and the introduction of Bill 6 in particular,) pushed him into activ-

ism. When Bill 6 was first introduced, Kropielnicki put a sign on a trailer and held a rally for the local farmers to have their voices heard. That was not the first time that he was involved in the hands-on work of provincial politics, though. During the Ed Stelmach days, he canvassed and put up signs as a volunteer. “We’re a long way off from those days,” said Kropielnicki. In business, Kropielnicki has been a grain farmer in the Vegreville area for a large portion of his life, and he takes pride in being a part of the Alberta agricultural community and the great asset Albertan agriculture is to the country and the world. He has been on the board for the seed cleaning plant for a number of years and understands what the world of agriculture needs for both survival and prosperity. As MLA, Kropielnicki believes he will be a strong, reasonable voice for all. Being in a close proximity to all Albertans, he says he knows the effects of certain policies and will do all I can to serve the people of this constituency. “Politics should be fair. It should look out for everyone’s best interest. People who know me, know I am a fighter, and I have a thick skin. That is what I bring to the table.” Kropielnicki firmly believes in the mission of the United Conservative Party to bring unity to Albertans who, when separated between the two parties, were not enough to create significant voting impact. “We were all upset, and we didn’t voice our opinion.” Said Kropielnicki, “I can be a unifier, I think I have the ability to bring people together.”

Nationalizatoin - CONTINUED from PAGE 4 it does today. We hear about getting out of the boom and bust cycle often, but it is, unfortunately, all talk regardless of which party is in power. I am not at all suggesting that everything should be nationalized. Our governments have a horrible track record for efficiency and fiscal responsibility because they are too often looking at the next election cycle and not what is good for the citizens or our money. There is also a long list of crown corporations both federal

and provincial that governments feel worthy of keeping. If the value of Canada post, Farm Credit Canada, Via Rail, the AGLC and other companies are seen, then why not our energy security? To simplify it to an insulting degree, the government is more concerned with the mail, beer, and cigarettes than they are with keeping the lights on and our homes from freezing. So why not nationalize pipelines? If nothing else, for the short time that the Canadian government hopes to have the pipeline in their hands, maybe they can clean up the spill on the land of Janice Antoine and Percy Joe. The spill on the Coldwater Reserve near Merritt, B.C. was discovered in 2014 and is estimated to be leaking since 1968. Unfortunately in the past 4 years, little has been done. Our government cares deeply about the environment. Let’s see if they care enough to fix this problem, now that they (we) own it. Tell me what you think. Email me at

U7 Soccer Games Continue

Rosanne Fortier News Correspondent Vegreville offers numerous sports that are fun and made for all ages can play. Seniors who wanted to participate in a light-weight sport joined the pickleball courts on various days during Seniors Week at Vegreville Centennial

Library and Vegreville Arena. The Town of Vegreville’s newsletter states that pickleball combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping pong. Pickleball is an on-going sport in Vegreville that people can drop-in to take part in. Call the library or arena for dates and more information.

Rosanne Fortier News Correspondent May 24’s U7 Soccer Game with the Avengers from Mundare and the Orange Crush team at the VCHS field was an involved game for both teams. The Coach for the Avengers is Christy Luims and Mike Van der Torre is the Coach for the Orange Crush team where Van der Torre said the Orange Crush won by 4 to 3. “The highlights

from the game were the defense was strong, goaltending was focused, they did well with forwards, and passing the ball,” Van der Torre said. “I believe the kids learned to have fun while they gained the fundamentals of soccer along the way.” In the same field close by, the U7 Shark Bites played soccer with the Dolphins where they also learned some valuable soccer skills.

Camrose Axemen – 11 Edmonton Expos – 7

Tuesday, June 5

Holden Blue Jays – 1 Leduc Milleteers – 9 The Milleteers would continue their success against the Holden Blue Jays with a dominant 9-1 win on Tuesday night in Leduc. The Milleteers would not be kind to their former pitcher Ryan Walker, who was making his first appearance against the team he played from 2009 – 2015. Walker would go 22-4 for the Milleteers during his seven seasons with the club but Leduc was not in the welcoming

mood. The Milleteers would use timely hits to capitalize on Jays errors to put up a big win vs Walker in his six innings of work. Walker would strike out six and allow just two earned runs in the loss. Offensively for the Jays, Zak Lang and Colton Ziegler would be 1 for 3 as the lone bright spots on Tuesday night. Camrose Roadrunners – 2 Armena Royals – 4 Rosalind Athletics – 16 Tofield Braves – 13 It was a pitching coach’s nightmare on Tuesday night in Tofield as the Braves and Athletics would combine for 29 runs and 28 hits with the Braves battling back from an early 10-2 deficit. Dylan Berrecloth (3 for 4) and Jason Sutherland (3 for 3) would lead the way for the Braves offense. Berrecloth would score twice and steal a total of four bases on the night while in his season debut Sutherland would hit a double and score three times in the loss. Rosalind would hit five doubles against the Braves trio of Sean Melanson, Sutherland and Dustin Huebert as the Athletics would send 55 hitters to the

plate in the nearly three-hour game.

This season the Braves have allowed 84 runs now over only 9 games after their defeat at the hands of the Milleteers on Thursday night. Milleteers veteran pitcher Jon Anstey would make an appearance on the hill for the win in Tofield.

Weather Damage Report Emily Mailhot Reporter – Vegreville News Advertiser Over the weekend, high winds created a risk of significant storms throughout the prairies. Beginning Saturday, June 9, a tornado advisory – and then warning – was in effect for Lamont County, with wind and thunderstorm watches in effect throughout the area east of Edmonton, including Beaver, Minburn, Lamont, and Two Hills Counties. A tornado touched down not far off, in Cold Lake, Alberta. Even with the actual tornado far off our actual doorstep, the extreme winds reaching beyond 70 km/h resulted in a number of trees falling on power lines, roads, and one roof that was reported to have been damaged (Vegreville.) In Mundare, Fire Cheif Glenda Dales reported a vicious windstorm accompanied by hail, which caused several fallen trees and one flipped boat that the fire department rescued.

Emergency Services said that the only emergencies they had to respond to were fallen trees, and thankfully nobody was injured from these incidents. While the tornado and thunderstorm warnings were no longer in effect as of Monday, June 11, a

wind advisory was put into effect in the Vegreville area on Tuesday, June 12, and is projected to continue for the next few days. People are advised to stay informed about the weather conditions, make sure their property is secured so as to not blow away, and refrain from unnecessary travel.

from 140 Cayuga RCSCC Wainwright, and representatives from the Navy League of Canada Alberta Division. The review was conducted by Lieutenant Commander Bob Newton – Area Elemental Advisor for Southern Alberta Lt (N) Boos – CD Commanding Officer for 56 RCSCC Nootka, CPO2 Luscombe, T – Coxswain, and Mr. Mike Grefer – President of the Holden Navy League. The Ceremonial Review is an inspection that occurs each spring to keep all the corps throughout the country united and in tip-top shape. About the Nootka Cadets, Lt (N) Newton said, “Bravo-Zulu! The way that you march, and wear your uniforms, and have conducted yourselves, shows that you care about your corps.”

After the inspection, there was a luncheon and speeches by the Cadets of each division, the Reviewing Officer, and Lt. (N) Boos. Lt. (N) Newton spoke to the cadets on the power and responsibility of sailing all the different “ships” in their life, such as friendship, relationship, stewardship, and ownership. The recurring question that he told them to ask themselves was “Am I committed and dedicated, or am I just along for the ride?” Lt. (N) Boos’ speech focused on the recognition and appreciation for all those to help the corps run smoothly and build community with each other. Awards were given out to Cadets with the best attendance, morale, leadership, improvement, and other qualities throughout the year. The review tied up the end of the 2017-18 year for the Sea Cadets in Holden, as the summer season introduces different opportunities for the Cadets, such as camps, which can be applied for and attended throughout the summer.

Nootka was established in 1954 by Lt(N) Cotrell, a member of the Viking Legion, serving as the first Commanding Officer. In the beginning, RCSS Nootka was supported by the Viking branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. Later, as more Sea Cadets from Holden and Ryley joined the newly formed corps, the Legions based in these communities became active in these corps, resulting in support for the RCSCC Nootka from all the surrounding Legions in Beaver County.

A Joyful St. Joseph’s General Hospital Nurses Reunion

Front Row: (1960) Shirley Ried, (1960) Betty Benoit, (1959) Fern Peterson, and (1959) Carol Love. Back Row: (1958) Fern Borgel, (1959) June Wyard Scott, (1959) Lil Rewniak, (1957) Alice Shepard, (1959) Vodie Marysiuk, (1958) Victoria Baldowski VHryniw, (1958) Enid Theophile, and (1958) Elsie Pshyk.

Elsie Pshyk St. Joseph’s General Hospital – Nursing School Grad Class of 1958 An energetic group of retired nurses from the St. Joseph’s General Hospital School of Nursing, Vegreville, Alberta, met on Saturday, May 26, 2018, to renew acquaintances and memories of the Nursing School era of their lives. The celebration was planned by the Nursing Class of 1958 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of their graduation in 1958. In attendance as well were members of the classes of 1957, 1959, and 1960. Some of the attendees had not been in contact with class members since they graduated and left to pursue their careers. The reunion was very meaningful. They traveled to Sherwood Park from Calgary, Edmonton, Bonnyville, Vermilion, Leduc, Wetaskiwin, and Vegreville to partake in this luncheon celebration. All of the attendees were able to enjoy the luncheon because of the accommodating staff at the Sherwood Park Tony Roma’s and expressed their gratitude to Connie for organizing, and their

waiter, Robert, for hosting them so graciously. The luncheon was spearheaded by Enid Theophile, one of the Nursing School graduates. When the class of ’58 were in school, all nurses in training schools were managed at participating accredited hospitals and were AARN approved. Handson training was done on-site, with affiliation training done in specialty areas. The nursing skills were trained by the Sisters of Charity of Our Lady of Evron. Colleges and Universities have become the learning centers but the hands-on care is still a vital component. Our school motto at St. Joseph’s General Hospital was “Sempre Fidelis,” which translates “Always Faithful.” The classes were small and the friendships were deep… We were truly sisters for the 36 month period of schooling. Because of the time that has gone by since then, we can note that while times have certainly changed, as has nursing as a bedside profession, but the love for humanity remains the same. As we reviewed the experience of our

nursing careers, it was well noted as to how changes in our society and healthcare options have changed. The evolution has been remarkable. The resounding echo of all the participants was that during our time, we all looked forward to providing care to those who needed it and guidance to assist others in their time of need as well.

Fast Facts Riding Dirty

Dear Classified Guys, I consider myself a pretty sharp guy. When I wanted to sell my car, I was smart enough to clean it up before the sale. Besides a quick car wash, I spent a few hours vacuuming and cleaning the inside and out. I even went an extra step and hired someone to steam clean the engine. It made the car look like new. Pretty good, considering it was 8 years old. When the one and only guy who answered my ad came to look at my car, I thought it was sold. He even commented on how clean it was. Then came the shocker. He told me he wouldn't make an offer because it was TOO clean! What was he thinking? Can a car be too clean or is this guy just plain crazy?

With the amount of road dust that accumulates, it's likely that we have all been guilty of having a dirty car. But just how dusty is your car? An International Car Wash Association survey found that nearly 32 million car owners had "Wash Me" scribbled on their car at least once. Those same people seem to be spreading the pattern. Nearly 25% admit to writing the message on someone else's car as well.

Soaking Wet

sion. A clean car will typically appeal to more buyers. However, steam cleaning the engine may have been too much. Carry: On an eight-year-old vehicle, a perfectly clean engine raises concerns that a seller is trying to hide something. Most people would expect to see some grease and grime under the hood. In fact, that's probably what your buyer was looking for. Cash: Since you cleaned the engine, there was no way for him to tell if there were any oil leaks or signs of a problem around the engine. Although many people barely know how to open the hood, others like to see the engine

didn't shine like that during the eight years you owned it. Carry: We often hear about sellers who clean their car just before they try to sell it. However during the time they owned it, it was full of empty coffee cups and fast food wrappers. Cash: Your effort to clean the car before resale was a good deci-

in its present condition. Carry: However, I wouldn't worry. Your buyer may be the minority. Many people would love to have a good running car that has been cleaned inside and out. Cash: A concern, though, is why only one person responded to your ad. It's possible that your asking price for the car was too high. Although the car may look like new, it's still eight years old and should be priced accordingly. Carry: If you do that, I'm sure you'll have no trouble finding an interested party. After all, we all need a clean car to fill with our empty coffee cups.

We all make mistakes, even in the car wash. According to a recent survey of car wash customers, 11% didn't put their car into neutral and 9% missed the track with their car tires. The more damaging mistakes included 29% who admitted to leaving their antenna up, 9% not closing the window, 5% not closing the door and 2% not shutting their sunroof. The most embarrassing, however, are the 2% (about 4 million car owners) who purposely open the window wondering what would happen!

Total Luxury

Although my friend and his wife bicker like an old married couple, they still love to take car trips together. Recently they bought a new minivan, fully loaded with all the options, to make their trips more enjoyable. When they first came to visit, they couldn't wait to show off all the features. I sat in the driver's seat to check it out. "This car has everything," I said looking at all the buttons. "Automatic door locks, automatic windows…" "And if I get lost," my friend interrupted. "My wife automatically yells at me." (Thanks to Sawyer N.)

Edmonton Expos – 6 Rosalind Athletics – 7 Holden Blue Jays – 11 Camrose Roadrunners – 1 It was the fastest game in Blue Jays history according to their Twitter account. The Jays would need only one hour and five minutes to pick up their fourth win of the season in a five-inning mercy rule shortened game against the Roadrunners. Jays started Grayson Suprovich would pitch four innings for the win, striking out four and allowing no earned runs. Catcher Stephen Hrabec would finish a home run short of the cycle going 3 for 3 with four RBIs and three runs scored on the night with outfielder Allan Ziegler also perfect at the plate going 3 for 3 with a pair of RBIs and a run scored. The eleven runs were by far the biggest offensive game for the Blue Jays. They came into tonight’s action against the Roadrunners having scored only fifteen runs in the previous six games to start the 2018 season.

Barb Morris Margaret and John Savage First Book Award - Submitted The winner of the 2018 Margaret and John Savage First Book Award – Non-fiction is Jen Powley’s memoir, Just Jen: Thriving Through Multiple Sclerosis. The award which has a value of $2500 recognizes the best first non-fiction book published in the previous year by an Atlantic Canadian writer. Jen received her award on May 10 at the annual Atlantic Book Awards which recognizes outstanding authors, illustrators, and publishers. Jen Powley has just completed a speaking tour throughout New Brunswick and Cape Breton Island to share her story. Just Jen is a powerful, uplifting, and unforgettable memoir written with frankness and humor. It is the first time people with MS can read a story that details some of what they have experienced themselves. It is the book Jen could not find when she was diagnosed at the age of fifteen. Just Jen is

published by Roseway, an imprint of Fernwood Publishing. Jen’s book was successfully launched at the Halifax Central Library early in May 2017. Powley was a featured author at the Brampton Festival of Literary Diversity. She launched her book in Alberta at the libraries in Vegreville and Innisfree, followed by presentations in Edmonton and Calgary, as well as Victoria, Vernon, and Gabriola Island in British Columbia. The book is currently required reading at Dalhousie University’s School of Occupational Therapy. Jen Powley was born and raised in Vegreville, where her parents Barb Morris and W.R. Powley still reside. She has lived in Halifax for nearly twenty years after relocating to pursue an after-degree program in Journalism at the age of 21. Powley’s literary achievement and inspired writing have touched many lives since the 2017 release of “Just Jen,” in Vegreville and Innisfree, and continues to be an inspiration to many.

Fathers are Fabulous! Rosanne Fortier News Correspondent Father’s Day on June 17 is the time we honor all fathers and father’s figures! Fathers really deserve to be recognized for all the roles they take on. Traditionally, fathers were known to be protectors and financial providers for their children. However, nowadays many fathers are really flexible and they take on so many roles. Some fathers work full-time and are happy to go home to nurture and take care of their children. They are known to be

patient, kind, and attentive. Then there are some fathers who choose to be stay-at-home dads where they take pride in this role and try their best to raise their children to be the best people they can be. Some men never become a biological dad but they spend their lives being role models and offer emotional support to people they are father’s figure for. There are men who dedicate their lives to being a single father and are brave enough to raise a child alone. Then we can’t forget the great male

teachers, step-fathers, adopted fathers, and other men who choose to make a difference in children’s lives and be guardians to children. “Psychology Today” stated that fathers are essential because they provide a safe and secure environment with supervision while they encourage and teach kids to take risks and not be afraid to try new things. Paternal physical play is associated with positive outcome for the child, and fathers provide children with extra financial support.

Welcome to Kindergarten

Welcome to Kindergarten Fair Rosanne Fortier News Correspondent The signs that led to the wonderful world of learning while preparing children for kindergarten were found at the ‘Welcome to Kindergarten Fair’ at Vegreville Centennial Library on May 29. Vegreville and District Child Development Coalition (VDCDC) offered this fair in partnership with A.L. Horton School and St. Martin’s School. It was meant for all children who will be entering kindergarten in 2018-2019. VDCDC Coordinator, Charlene Melenka said the purpose of the kindergarten fair is to create a community event where parents, caregivers and children entering kindergarten can experience the strategies, resources, and supports that will prepare the child for a fun and successful first year in school.

There were seven fun and interactive stations that were meant to be done between the children and Early Child Development organizations, Alberta Health Services, and Kindergarten teachers from both elemenKatie Olineck with her son, Charlie at the Literacy and Numeracy Station.

tary schools. The stations were: sensory bin and creative exploration, talking and reading, ages and stages questionnaire, play-doh, letters and numbers, movement and healthy snack. Each of these stations was meant to develop the five domains of early childhood development; physical health and well-being, social competence, emotional maturity, language and thinking skills, communication skills, and general knowledge. Assistant Principal for A.L. Horton School, Mr. Arndt said this fair helps children because it connects families with the different services available in the community and it helps parents understand what their child needs to be ready for kindergarten. Parents were provided with a bag of resources and a learning resource book to encourage further learning and play within the home. This resource bag was purchased from the Learning Partnership by AL. Horton and St. Martin’s Schools. These activities are to be done with their child over the summer months and throughout the kindergarten year. Parents are the child’s first and most important teacher. There were also door prizes and free giveaways.

These performances were the final project of a week of the physical theatre company, Trickster working with the students. Assistant Principal, Mr. Arndt opened the night by saying it has been a great week at the school because of Trickster’s residency. The students learned teamwork, movement, excitement, and commitment. Each class created a different performance where they all had the knack to entertain while some threaded a lesson through their play by using humor and physical expressions. The performances featured a glow in the dark hockey game, an original soccer game, a play about an ant bully that taught the lesson that no matter how frustrating it can be to deal with a bully, we can’t be like them; we have to use positive reinforcement instead. There was a tattling lamb and the kids discover how to treat it and the lamb learned how to act better. At one performance everyone was shown what will happen to Canada in 2168 if we don’t take care of the earth

now. Other plays were about being kind, how to be good Canadians, Vegreville Pride, and more topics. All these acts received a thunderous applause from the audience. Everyone learns to get along in the Great Treaty. (Rosanne Fortier/photo)

A Rainy-Day Surprise for Vegreville Elementary Schools


Emily Mailhot Reporter – Vegreville News Advertiser Members of the Alberta Chuckwagon and Chariot Association (ACCA) visited Vegreville’s elementary schools St. Martin’s and A.L. Horton to talk to the children about chuckwagon racing on Friday, June 1, leading up to the official race season start at the Vegreville Ag Society the weekend of June 2. While the original plan was to give the children an opportunity to meet some horses and learn about the chuckwagon close-up, the cold and rainy weather pushed the visit indoors, where the ACCA representatives visited the students

from each classroom. Each of the drivers told the students a little about themselves, and, amongst some banter between the drivers, answered the students’ questions about themselves, their horses, their wagons, and racing. The visit to the schools gave the drivers a chance to connect with a younger generation of chuckwagon and chariot fans and gave the students a chance to learn more about an event that is an annual part of their community – and which they were sure to have plenty of questions about. Free passes were given out to the first student to ask a question from each class, and Dubuc reminded them to all come and see the available Chuckwagon and Chariot racers during the weekend’s events.

Band Director, Ms. Maureen Yule said months of hard work and dedication led the Grade Five’s and Six’s students to showcase their skills at their first performance at the Wendy Brook Festival which they did fantastic at. The concert featured the Grade Five’s and Six’s and it started off with some solo performances by the Grade Fives. The first set held foot rocking rhythm to their powered ballad while the Smooth Sailing piece presented more of a softer and slow pace. Their performance of Closet Key carried a catchy melody to it while ‘Come on Down’ stayed at a nice and steady bass. The Grade Six’s were next, with their chosen signature piece, Amazing Grace which won the audience over.

They continued with many more performances which included, Take the Stairs where Yule said they really did do this as they learned how to play high notes well. The concert closed with the ‘Celebration’ piece which is what always happens when music is performed as well as it was at this concert. Each of these performances received an appreciative applause while the audience cheered and whistled after some of the performances.

Exploring Alternative Materials to Reduce Plastic Pollution Keith Weller Head of News and Media – UN Environment The report by UN Environment assesses the potential of replacing certain conventional plastics applications with alternative materials. Packaging and other single-use items form a large proportion of the plastic litter leaking to the ocean. The report highlights some relatively conventional alternatives as well as less obvious solutions: including algae, fungi and pineapple leaves. Nairobi, 1 June 2018 – In an effort to equip the world with the tools and knowledge to reduce plastic litter from ending up in our ocean, rivers, and lakes, UN Environment today published a report assessing the potential of replacing conventional plastics with alternative materials in certain applications. The ocean has increasingly become a repository for discarded plastics and microplastics, with significant demonstrable social, economic and environmental impacts. It is neither possible nor desirable to remove all plastics from society. However, the realization from consumers and policymakers that urgent action to stop

the flow of disposable plastics is needed is growing, and alternatives can have a significant role in reducing our dependence. “Making the switch from disposable plastic to sustainable alternatives is an investment in the long-term future of our environment,” Erik Solheim, Head of UN Environment said. “The world needs to embrace solutions other than single-use, throwaway plastic” The report outlines a range of alternative materials that can be used to replace single-use plastics where possible. There are situations – particularly in the medical field – where plastic provide an essential use. But often, natural materials and alternative technologies can be used to break humanities addition to disposable plastic. This is particularly true for consumer products as these represent a large amount of the plastic pollution contributing to marine litter. “The report is intended to encourage society to question our current use of plastics and consider the adoption of alternative approaches, especially for those items which can be characterized as designed for single use, such as packaging,” Peter Kershaw, lead author of the report said. “Packaging and other single-use items form a large proportion of the plastic litter leaking to the ocean.”

The authors highlight a range of plastic materials that frequently cross our paths – from plastic food containers to synthetic clothing, to the loose fill that is often used to protect fragile products during transport – and identifies them as among the ‘main culprits’ of marine plastic litter. Twenty-five case studies from around the world illustrate a wide range of applications to reduce our dependence on the unnecessary use of plastics of disposable plastics. The report contributes to the debate on how to make our use of the planet more sustainable, citing several of the Sustainable Development Goals, including poverty reduction, increased community resilience, and waste minimization. The advantages and disadvantages of conventional plastics made from fossil fuels are further compared with both alternative natural materials, obtained from plants and animals and newer generation bio-polymers which are plastics made from biomass sources. The report highlights some relatively conventional alternatives to plastics – such as paper, cotton, and wood – as well as less obvious solutions including algae, fungi, and pineapple leaves – among others. By growing global awareness of the social, economic and environmental impacts of our current relationship with disposable plastics, as well as outlining a wideranging set of alternatives, UN Environment is setting the stage for an informed dialogue on how to break the global addiction to single-use plastics. “Science can help business develop green and innovative solutions,” said Jian Liu, Chief Scientist at UN Environment. “There are major business and job opportunities in the development of new alternative materials that can replace single-use plastics” The report is launched coinciding with World Environment Day 2018, celebrated annually on June 5th. Under the theme: “Beat Plastic Pollution”, the day is a call to action for communities to combat this increasing challenge to our societies.
