Michael Simpson Editor Edberg Crop Management and private investors Dean Fahselt and Garth Dinwoodie have purchased the assets of Prairie Crop in Vegreville. The local company will change its name to Vegreville Crop Management, but all the local staff will stay with the addition of Dinwoodie to the Vegreville roster. “The purchase of Prairie Crop Management has been in the plans for a period of time already,” James Mitchell, President of Edberg Crop Management said. “We expect the transition to be very smooth; there is a terrific team of people already in place so it will be business as usual going forward. The facility that Ken and Cliff have constructed was done so with a great deal of vision and a strong intention for this business to support the Vegreville trading area for an extended period of time.” The new owners are very proud to maintain Vegreville Crop Management as one of the very few truly independent agricultural businesses in Western Canada. Both Mitchell and Fahselt have been in the Ag Retail Businesses as owners and managers
RCMP warn of contractor scam Vegreville RCMP Submitted From August 16th to August 26th, 2015, Vegreville RCMP received reports of paving crews soliciting local rural area residents. The crews claim they are a contracting company working in the area on large projects with an excess in paving materials. It is reported that these men are claiming they are willing to give customers an inexpensive rate on these materials. Once work has begun, they then demand significantly more money than the original price quoted. Reports indicate the men are seeking cash for their work but
refuse to provide quotes for the job at hand, or invoices for services rendered. The company has threatened court action and liens to ensure work is paid for. Similar incidents have been reported from all across Alberta. The public is being requested to protect their interests by ensuring the following: - Get recommendations and check references. Ask questions about the company’s work quality and time lines. - Get a written quote or invoice before work is started. - Get complete contact information from the company including full name, address and telephone numbers for the company and the individual contractors. If you are tempted by what sounds like a good deal, get their information and let them know you will think about it. They will likely pressure you to make a decision that day but stay firm. The public is encouraged to report all suspicious persons or activity to Police in their area.
for a number of years and are thrilled with the opportunity to expand their ownership into the Vegreville market area. James Mitchell, President of Edberg Crop Management will oversee operations in Vegreville. “We’re all excited. We hope you choose to do business with our company, there is a great staff there, a magnificent facility and being a local independent business you can feel confident your contributions will remain within the community,” Fahselt said.
RCMP Vegreville Detachment – Suspicious Vehicle/Theft
Submitted On August 25th, 2015 the Vegreville Detachment of the RCMP responded to multiple complaints of a suspicious vehicle entering rural properties in the area of Mundare, Alberta between the hours of 6:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. The vehicle, described as a red Chevrolet Cavalier, was being driven by a female who appeared to have an infant in the vehicle. RCMP members located the vehicle stalled on the side of Hwy 855 north of
Mundare. Stephanie Tchir, who matched descriptions provided by witnesses, was found with stolen property in the vehicle, including gas cans. Tchir was arrested and charged with theft under $5,000 and is scheduled to appear in Vegreville Provincial Court on September 21, 2015. The RCMP thank the public for their vigilance. The Veg r e v i l l e RC M P Detachment want to remind the public to report any suspicious activity they may witness.

Rotary helping feed the hungry in Vegreville Michael Simpson Editor A recent notice from the Vegreville Food Bank that supplies are getting low has prompted the Rotary Club to launch a food drive to support the charitable organization. Vegreville Rotary Club President Lois Byers said her club members encouraging people who want to help replenish supplies to bring non perishable items to VALID’s office (4843 49 St) or to Capri Beauty Salon (5015 50 St). Any perishable items such as produce are still welcome, but must be given directly to the Food Bank which is open Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. until noon, located at 4615 60 St inside the Maple Street Worship Center. “We’ve started as of yesterday (August 31) helping the food bank replenish their stock as they are in a tough situation,” Byers said. “Rotarians are bringing items for the food bank to their weekly meetings and reaching out to the community to ask them to be a part of this food drive project. The VALID day program has volunteered to take the food bank items and deliver them to the food bank every Tuesday and Friday morning.” Rotary has committed to bringing items until the end of December. Fall and winter see major use, particularly with back to school lunches, major holidays such as Christmas and Thanksgiving occurring during this time.

Rosanne Fortier Sometimes the best learning happens when you’re having fun. On August 24, M.O.D.E.L Project and Vegreville’s Senior Sunshine Club joined to hold Picnic with a Purpose which was a windup party for the Sunny-Side-Up program for teens and seniors during the summer. Participants of this program discovered that people of all ages have the same general feelings and things in common. “This wind-up picnic was an opportunity for teens and seniors to celebrate the relationships they built and connections they made.” Tracy Laschowski, Success Coach for M.O.D.E.L Project said. Dwayne Hlady, Treasurer for Sunshine Club said he enjoyed holding this pro-
gram and would like to see it continued and have more young people involved. “Today, we had a wonderful turn-out of seniors and had six teens. I look forward to having this program next year.”

FROM THE PAGES OF THE VEGREVILLE OBSERVER
COMPILED BY DAN BEAUDETTE
90 Years Ago – September 2, 1925 Wm. Webb’s residence on Third Avenue East was completely destroyed by fire in the early morning hours of Thursday, August 27th. The fire was first noticed about 2 a.m. but had gained such headway that neither the building nor the contents could be saved. No one has the slightest idea how the fire originated as Mr. Webb and his family have been out of town for several days on their farm. The loss on the building and furniture is compete but how much is may amount to can only be conjectured, as Mr. Webb had not been seen by the Observer since the fire. The North-West Grain Co. elevator in Vegreville had the honor of taking in the first new wheat of the season on Monday, the grain being supplied by H. Borgens. It is customary to accord the first wheat of the season a No. 1 grade, so this load was given the usual courtesy and put through as No. 1. It’s actual grade was a good No. 2. It was cut on August 5th. Only a small patch has yet been threshed but the output was 32 bushels per acre.
75 Years Ago – August 28, 1940 Elections were held recently to appoint district representatives to the Alberta Wheat Pool. A.W. Fraser was elected for Sub-District G-8, the other candidates being R.M. Bacon of Fort Saskatchewan and j. S. Kubin of Inland. Mr. Fraser’s term is for two years. Candidates for enlistment in Canada’s armed forces who are citizens of a foreign country are not now required to take the Oath of Allegiance provided for the King’s Regulations, if by so doing their citizenship in their own country is forfeited. “I was wanting to set mine on fire.” “It’s the toughest I’ve ever been through,” are the common expressions coming from farmers in the Two Hills area, who have undertaken to harvest their buckwheat. Harvesting certainly is man-killing and slow this year. However, it’s just about time we were used to it.
50 Years Ago – September 2, 1965 The contract for the building of the academic-vocational high school in Vegreville was awarded to Forest Construction Ltd., Edmonton for $1,993,800 at a recent meeting of the school committee and county council of the County of Minburn. The tenders were slightly higher than anticipated but the reason for this is attributed to the fact that the estimates were made about two years ago. Three young lads were doubly proud of the catch they got, since it was the first time any of them had been lucky enough to land a fish. The jackfish were biting well at Pearce Lake and Donnie Chudyk, Brent Bauer and Bobbie Chudyk were proud to brag about the ones that didn’t get away. A successful three-day grand opening of the recently incorporated Double-V-Foodland Store operated by well-known residents, William and Victoria Pondick, formally Andy’s Supermarket managed by Andy Onusko, was held last Thursday, Friday and Saturday when many bargains were featured on many food lines. Tickets on a Free Food Hamper were drawn at the close of each day. Dr. N. J. Kuzyk, a prominent member of the Vegreville Elks Lodge will perform his duties for the “master” the Alberta Hotel on Saturday, September 11. The doctor will work a full shift in the dispensary of the hotel likely in the “Saturday’s prescription” room. The management assured the Observer that the prescription is not exactly a cure for snakebite but comes under the label of Calgary (ginger ale, of course.)
25 Years Ago – August 26, 1990 St. Joseph’s General Hospital officially opened its new child care centre and radiology department on Friday, August 24. The ribbon cutting ceremony began in radiology and continued in the child care centre with Mayor Kay McKenzie doing the honors. The doors of the beautiful new child care centre at St. Joseph’s General Hospital in Vegreville opened for operation August 27. The new facility consists of two spacious playrooms and an infant room to care for the very young. Members of the Vegreville Pool Sharks performed well at an Alberta Summer Swimming Association provincial meet in Calgary. The five swimmers comprised of Trevor Calder, Paul Varga, John Varga, Steven Maychak and Marilyn Maychak. Paul Varga earned a gold medal in the 50m backstroke and a bronze in the 25m butterfly in the 9-10 category. John Varga won a bronze in the 25m butterfly in the 8 and under category. Jo-Anne Fried and Jeanne Yakimyshyn attended the Alberta Teacher’s Association summer conference in Banff. In addition to her teaching duties at A.L. Horton Junior High School, Mrs. Yakimyshyn is the ATA communications consultant for the counties of Minburn, Two Hills, Beaver and Vermilion River. Mrs. Fried teaches Grade 3 at Queen Elizabeth School and is the local communications officer for the Vegreville Local No. 30 of the ATA.

Lakeland REA members from the other side of the coin speak out Recently ATCO put forward an offer to purchase the member-owned Lakeland REA. We are a group of members who are very concerned with how the Lakeland REA Board handled this offer. We strongly feel that the board shared inaccurate and skewed information with the membership, and that all members have the right to receive accurate truthful information. It is also our belief that legally the Lakeland REA Member Owners should have been given the opportunity to vote on the offer presented by ATCO. We have started a petition that requests two things of the Lakeland REA Board: - The board agrees to attend a Joint Information Session
with ATCO representatives, so that members can get accurate truthful information and ask questions of both the Lakeland REA Board and ATCO. - To hold a Special General Meeting and allow Lakeland REA Member Owners to vote on the offer that ATCO has put forward. The Lakeland REA Board has told you that you are Member Owners and there is an INTRISIC VALUE to that; however they refused to allow you your right as a Member Owner by not giving accurate information and denying you your legal right to vote on the offer put forward by ATCO. We are setting up a Facebook page where all Lakeland REA Members are welcome to get
more information on our concerns about some of the information the Lakeland REA Board sent to members in recent weeks as well as some of the information disseminated and discussed at the open house meetings held in July. As members of the REA we wanted to get the facts straight, so we did our homework. What we found leads us to believe a lot of the information provided by the Board was biased and misleading. For more information please call one of the following individuals: Conrad 780-6566369, Ed 780-656-6361.
Sincerely, Andy and Diane Klein Petition Committee

Friday night Vegrevilleâ€™s own Davin Gegolick was on the grounds at vEGGfest on Friday evening snapping away with his camera. Gegolick captured moments from the performances by Mourning Wood, Kim Mitchell and Trooper. Feedback from Friday night was extremely positive, with many asking the question: Will this become a yearly event? The Chamber of Commerce will have to
answer that question at some point, but are not doubt regrouping after the two-day affair and taking stock of everything. Davin was kind enough to share some of his favourite photographs with the Vegreville News Advertiser for print, and is in the process of uploading all the images from the night to a gallery on his website for viewing and download. If youâ€™re interested in seeing more, check out www.davingphotography.com and see if your face showed up in the photos! Our thanks to Davin for the images.

What a Great Country Fair! Rachel Farr Vegreville Ag Society President #vegfair2015 was a great success! It was a long few weeks preparing for the annual country fair but in the end it all turned out perfectly. Many hours, both volunteer and paid, go into organizing and hosting the Country Fair. Preparing the grounds ahead of the event takes many hours. This year the race track saw a new coat of gravel/sand to help with the footing of the horses. The outdoor horse arena was given an upgrade with a new higher fence. The old MacDonaldâ€™s barn was moved to the Kids Fun Zone area. The marketing committee purchased new banners
for the gates which looked really sharp. The Vegreville Agricultural Society built a new parade float thanks to directors Dave Humphries and John Litun. Some new additions this year at the Country Fair were the Bingo games that were held in the arena during the day. Director Tracy Giffin spear headed this project and did a fantastic job organizing it. Another addition was the raffle for â€œa ride in a chuckwagon.â€? Director Shane Cartier drove the winner, Kristen Sokalski, around the track, not without tricking him first by pulling up with a team of mini horses. Director Crystal Zabrick spearheaded and organized a new
summer raffle, which has great prizes, like a side by side, from Dennills Agricentre/Kubota. (PS tickets are still available!) Back by popular demand was the grandstand performance of a hypnotist, market place â€œmoneytunnelâ€? kids tractor pulls, tractor pulls, bandshell entertainment, dynamo dog sports show, beer gardens, exhibit hall displays and of course lots of food, games and rides! The Canadian Pony Chuckwagon and chariot races were a fan favorite once again. Director Shane Cartier said â€œWe had a great turnout of wagons and carts from BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, that were all very competitive. The drivers were extremely happy with the track, some saying it was the best they
september 2, 2015
ran on this year. Overall, [it was] a great show and lots of great heats for the fans to watch. Vegreville is still one of the favorite places to run for most drivers. They love the great fans that we have at the Vegreville Country Fair.â€? Office manager Cathy Freed said the attendance was up for 2015. Attendance was 10,359 for the three days. This number does not include any children 5 years old and under and there were a great number of wee ones enjoying themselves on the rides! The weather was, for the most part, sunny and warm, which could have helped increase attendance, plus the marketing committee had attended a lot of tradeshows and broadened the advertising for the Country Fair. It was great to see all the hard work of the employees and volunteer directors pay off with some many people enjoying the Country Fair and making so many memories. We really do try to appeal to anyone and everyone and boast that we have what the big city offers with a small town feel. Saturday I spoke to a family on the midway that were from Cold Lake. They had come just for the fair, saying they believe the Vegreville Country Fair was far better than anything event that they had in their area. Their family was very happy and planning to attend next year. It is important to point out that the Vegreville Country Fair is basically run by volunteers, people like you and me. A big thank you can be extended to the directors and the committees that they work with. Some concerns have been expressed about the quality and variety of the midway rides. There are two midway companies in western Canada that would service a town of our size. We are fortunate to have Wild Rose Shows provide safe rides for our children. There are many communities that canâ€™t get a midway to come to their town. We hear many people say they would like the midway from Vermilion but at this time that midway company does not have any dates available. I would love to hear your opinion of t he 2015 Vegreville Agricultural Society Country Fair, as we always strive to be better.

Oh to win an eternal crown!
Children build a tower at‘Shine’Vacation Bible School at St.John’s Lutheran Church.(Rosanne Fortier/Photo)
Rosanne Fortier St. John’s Lutheran Church bestowed a message of eternal reward in a spirited way to 25 children from three years-old to 11 at their Vacation Bible School on August 10, 11 and 12. There were skits, scripture lessons, crafts, music, snacks and outdoor activities included with it. Children were taught to be bright, brave and a shining example for others. The theme was SHINE and the first lesson was on the Crown of Victory, the second on the Crown of Life. This was taken from the Bible, 1 Corinthians 9:25. “The crown is a metaphor from the bible that Jesus is King: the crown symbolizes Jesus and the victory He gives us on the cross where He died and rose to life at Easter. The Crown of Victory is where he empowers us through His Holy Spirit.” Colleen Albert, music leader said. “The main message is we are saved by the grace of God; not by what we do but by His power, love and mercy.” The VBS program was from Go Fish. A skit called Crown of Victory by John Cosper was presented to the children. There were costumes and humorous parts with it. The cast were the program leadersCaryl Potts as Muriel the TV reporter, Colleen Albert-The Glory Giver, Becky Yurko as The Glory Getter and the Glory Getter’s silent sidekick was Becky’s eighteen month old son, Scott.

KidSport celebrating 20 years Michael Simpson Editor After its creation in 1995 at the AGT March of Champions, KidSport is celebrating 20 years of helping kids play organized sports. As the Vegreville chapter was one of the original 10 created, they will be recognizing the occasion with a free BBQ during registration night on September 9 at the Social Center when kids and parents come out to see which activities they want their kids to be in for the year. The Vegreville chapter takes root from the work Ken Anderson and the late Brian Henderson who were strong believers in providing equal opportunities for children to
be able to realize the benefits of participating in organized sports. Currently, the KidSport Vegreville chapter is operated by Henderson’s daughter Leanne, son in law Derek Christensen and a dedicated board of volunteers that work hard at fundraising, coordinating awareness activities and ensuring applications are processed to allow qualified candidates to have their registration fees paid for by the organization so that they may play sports. “The work that Brian and Ken started is so important because the benefits of playing organized sports go beyond the court,” Christensen said. “The kids who play develop mental fitness, leadership skills, the ability to organize their goals and achieve them. Leanne and I still hear from children today who were able to play 20 years ago because of KidSport and Brian’s involvement through the community as a diehard coach of many sports teams.” The concept of KidSport originated in British Columbia when Sport BC’s Board of Directors real-
september 2, 2015
ized inflate registration and equipment fees were a barrier to the participation of kids in organized sports programs. That Board created KidSport, and the concept has become a national effort to keep kids in the game as of 1993. By 1995, Alberta was involved, and after 20 years provincially, 62,500 children have been able to gain access to sports programs that may not have been possible otherwise. Beginning with 10 chapters, there are now 39 community chapters assisting thousands of children each year.

Most recently in Vegreville, the 2014 Montreal Canadiens Alumni vs KidSport Vegreville team was a dynamic event that helped raise thousands for the organization and bring their work to the front of field. Other major local community projects that have benefitted KidSport include the Kinsmen Street Hockey Tournament and the Eggcellent Obstacle Race, created by the Vegreville Ag Society with the support of Elevation Obstacle Races.
Ask the Guys Dear Classified Guys, I went to look at a canoe for sale and the woman selling it offered to sell me an outboard motor, fishing poles and all kinds of fishing gear as well. The prices were so good that I bought everything. The next week I enjoyed a great fishing trip on the river. But when I returned, I received a call from the woman's husband saying his wife sold all his things while he was away on business. Now he wanted them back. Ten minutes later, his wife called me and said under no circumstances should I sell that stuff back to him. She didn't want it back in the house. I love all the fishing gear, but I sympathize with the husband. Any suggestions what I should do?
• • • Cash: Sounds like another fishing trip may be in order. It would be a lot more peaceful than dealing with this couple. Carry: You never know the circumstances that may arise after you make a purchase. In your case, you fell into the middle of a marital squabble. Cash: It's like you were the first one in line for the divorce

Fast Facts Get a Receipt
Reader Humor Green with Envy
Whenever you buy an item from a private party, make sure you get a signed receipt from the seller. No matter how big or small the item is, get it in writing. The receipt should include a description of the item (including serial numbers if applicable), the date of the sale and the purchase price. The seller should include his or her address, phone number and sign the bottom. Should any discrepancies arise about the sale, you will have a written receipt to protect yourself.
I just love golf. In fact, I play almost every weekend. Sad to say, it was one of the contributing factors to my recent divorce. After a brutal division of assets, my ex-wife fought to get my custom golf clubs as a final jab at our separation. Since then, I've been playing with my old set that I had stored in the garage. I thought I had gotten over the loss of my clubs until I met up with my buddy recently on the golf course. He was playing with a new set of clubs. "That looks like a nice set," I admired. "It sure is," he laughed. "and you're ex-wife gave me a great deal on them!" (Thanks to Benny T.)
Women Rule sale before the actual divorce! Carry: At the time of purchase, you had no reason to believe anything was wrong. Since the couple is still married, it's likely she had the right to sell you the items and you can go ahead with your fishing expeditions without worry. Cash: However, if you're feeling remorseful about the purchase of all the gear and want to resolve the situation, here's what you can do. Call the wife back. She is the one you should speak to since she sold you the items. Carry: Explain that you do not want to be in the middle of their
personal matters. However, if she would like you to sell the items back, you would be willing to do so. Cash: And although tempting, it's probably not a good idea to raise the prices. The husband seems upset enough. Imagine what he'd say if you doubled the prices when you sold it back? Carry: If the woman turns down your offer, then your conscience is clear and you can plan that next fishing trip. Cash: But if the woman does take you up on your offer, then maybe it's time to look for a new hobby.
Who wears the pants in your family? While many guys like to think they are in charge, the truth is that women typically control the household. According to recent surveys, women control 85% of all personal and household spending decisions, and make 75% of their family's financial decisions. However guys, if you decide you want to be in charge of something in your house, it's really not a problem. All you have to do is get your wife's permission first! •

Shannon Stubbs Supports Strong Communities Shannon Stubbs Campaign Submitted The federal Conservatives have focussed tirelessly on economic stewardship and job creation, on Canadian values and human rights, on safety and security, including changes to the justice system to put the rights of victims first, and a relentless faith in individual Canadians, their families and local communities. This is the major contrast between the federal Conservatives and the other parties: the federal Conservatives believe that individuals know what is best for themselves, their families and their communities. The other parties believe that politicians, government executives, government managers and administrators in Ottawa know best. That is why the federal Conservatives’ economic plan respects taxpayers, focuses on priorities and spends within its means. The facts are: the federal budget is on track to be balanced, the federal government has provided record tax relief for individuals, seniors and families, invested a historic level of funding in infrastructure in partnership with provinces and municipalities, consistently increased annual transfers to the provinces for health care and social services and has completed more than 40 free trade agreements with other countries, increasing opportunities for Canadians across all sectors. The federal Conservatives continue to stand by these principles. During the campaign so far, we have committed to introducing a new, permanent Home Renovation Tax Credit that will reduce the costs of maintaining a home, support local jobs and will ensure consumers benefit from professional contractors, along with additional measures to make it easier for families to purchase homes. The federal Conservatives believe that hardworking Canadians know what is best for their families, which is why we have expanded the Universal Child Care Benefit so that all families are empowered to make their own decisions about childcare. We also want to help adoptive families by significantly increasing the value of the Adoption Expense Tax Credit and making it fully refundable because every child deserves a home and a loving family. Seniors built our country and community volunteers contribute so much. The federal Conservatives know that senior Canadians have worked hard their whole lives and know the value of a dollar saved. We will build on the introduction of pension income splitting for seniors, improvements to the Registered Retirement Investment Funds and introduction of the Tax Free Savings Accounts, of which more than half of current TFSA holders are seniors. The federal Conservatives believe that service club members and local citizens – not government – know best the priorities and the solutions to challenges in their communities, which is why we commit to tax relief and support for service club members and volunteers. Despite global economic challenges, Canada is in the strongest financial position of all the developed countries in the world, we are home to the wealthiest middle class on the planet, and according to recent international surveys that told us what we all already knew: Canada is considered the best country in which to live and is the most reputable country in the world.

CARD OF THANKS PAZIUK The family of Terry Paziuk would like to thank everyone for the love and support shown to us during this difficult time. A heartfelt thank you to all for your cards, flowers, condolences, donations, visits and phone calls. Terry fought a long and courageous battle with determination and a strong will. His sense of humour rarely wavered. There are so many people to thank, people who made his hard journey bearable, from the myriad of doctors, nurses and medical teams, hospital staff, Lakeland Respiratory, Health Unit, Home Care and Palliative Care teams to dear family, friends, coffee buddies and neighbours - you had a huge impact on Terry’s well being, physically, mentally and emotionally, and he held you all in high regard. We would like to extend special thanks to Dr. Strydom and to the nurses and staff at St. Joseph’s who saw Terry on a regular basis, to Drs Olineck and staff, to Dr. Chrapko and Regina, to Curtis Hirsch and staff, to our wonderful neighbours; the Vargas, Stefanciks, Elaniuks, Goselwitz’s and Kuchiks for all your help and concern over the years, and to all our loving families who were, and are, always there for us. Special thanks also to Terry’s cousins, Gale Stonehouse and Lorie Paziuk for reading the eulogy and sharing memories with us, to the Ladies Auxiliary for a lovely luncheon, to all who attended the Gathering of Family and Friends, and to Patti and Gordon from Autumn Rose for your guidance and gentle, caring ways. May you all take comfort, as we do, knowing Terry is now at peace. - Heather, Chad & Shawn

WILSON (Ferleyko) Debbie January 24, 1973 – September 3, 2011 We thought we saw you in the crowd They walked like you their stance was so proud Their hair was the same their profile too. We really thought it could be you Then we remembered you were gone Our hearts fell flat as we walked on We see your face wherever we go Guess we thought that you should know We still hear your laugh And we see your smile Though you’ve been gone for a while. We miss you more than words can say. We wish it had been you that we saw today. God bless you Debbie you were the best.

MAZANKOWSKI, Raymond Edwin “Always In Our Hearts” April 7, 1926 – September 6, 1990 In loving memory of our Husband, Father & Grandfather. There is a bridge of memories from here, To Heaven above. That keeps you very close to us It’s called the bridge of love As time goes by without you The days have turned into 25 years. They had a million memories and a thousand silent tears, To us you were so very special What more is there to say, Except to wish with all our hearts, that you were here with us today. Forever loved and remembered Your wife Carole and children Shauna Rae, Allan, Norine, and their families
Lowe, Darcy Wilfred April 6, 1930 - August 27, 2015 It is with deep sadness that the family of Darcy Wilfred Lowe announce his passing on August 27, 2015. Dad is survived by his wife of sixty one years, Jennie Anne Lowe, his children Derrien (Cindy), Leanne (Mike), Sheldon (Donna) and Shaun (Dody), nine grandchildren and one great grandchild. He was predeceased by his granddaughter Chelsea in 2010. Dad was born in Beaverlodge, Alberta but lived the majority of his life in Vegreville. He took great pride in his work and especially enjoyed operating the grader for The Department of Highways, The County of Minburn and The Town of Vegreville. Without a doubt though, his greatest passions were his family and friends. He enjoyed nothing more than socializing and swapping stories. He was the proverbial ‘rock’ in our family and we are going to miss his voice, the sparkle in his eyes, stories, jokes, teasing, tobacco scent, trademark whisker rubs, bear hugs and solid handshakes. We would like to extend a huge thank you to all of Dad’s caregivers from the Homestead Lodge, Century Park and the Vegreville Care Centre. We know you took great care of him and we appreciate it immensely. Respecting Dad’s wishes, there will be no formal service, however, we will have a celebration of his life to be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations made to a charity of your choice would be much appreciated.

OBITUARY PICHOCH, Sarah Christine In loving memory of our daughter, sister, grand daughter and friend who passed away August 31, 2007. Always and Forever Let us remember Your smile unending Your spirit so bright! Your energy, your singing Having fun way into the night! The laughter, the jokes The great attitude! The painting, the naps The roadtrips when ever the mood! You’re gone to a place we may not see But if we look around the memories will always be! You’re in our hearts & thoughts forever We love you always, our Dear Sarah! If tears could build a stairway, And memories were a lane. I would walk right up to heaven, To bring you home again. No farewell words were spoken, No time to say good-bye. You were gone before I knew it And only God knows why. My heart still aches in sadness, And secret tears still flow. What it meant to lose you, No one will ever know. You and angels around God’s happy throne. I would have held you closer If I had known. In Loving Memory and Sadly Missed Dwayne, Rachel, Rebecka, Justin, Trisha, Ryan, Carl, Amber, Nicole & Dylan, Annie and Friends

Saturday night Local artist and photographer Suzanne Malo of MaloPhotography was pulling a double shift on Saturday August 29 for vEGGfest taking pictures of the family events that happened at the Elks Park as well as the Saturday night country concert, which featured an Edmonton-based opening band The Dungarees, followed by
Canadian country stars Doc Walker and American country legends Sawyer Brown. The Country show was a packed event which proved you don’t have to be in a rock act to put on a rockin’ show. A handful of her personal selections were given to the News Advertiser for print and the full day’s worth of events can be viewed at a gallery on her website, www.suzannemalophotography.com.

Party at the Playground makes for a smooth transition to kindergarten
St. Martin’s School’s upcoming kindergarten’s students have a cheerful supper with their classmates, teachers, and parents at the Party at the Playground on August 25.
Children who will be entering kindergarten at St. Martin’s School walk hand-in-hand with their leader, Amanda Campbell,M.O.D.E.L Project Success Coach for Kinder Convo where they engage in a conversation stick and discuss various topics.
Rosanne Fortier New beginnings incite feelings of being alive but they also have a pinch of fear in them. Party in the Playground’s goal is to provide children and families an opportunity to meet and start to build relationships to reduce anxiety before the first day of kindergarten. On August 25, this event was offered for St. Martin’s upcoming kindergarten students. The school’s theme this year is There’s Only One You and kids discovered this later when they got acquainted with each other and their kindergarten teachers-Mrs. Cowle and Mrs. Zacharkiw and the Kindercare professional, Mrs. Dinwoodie. On August 26, Party in the Playground was presented to A.L. Horton’s future students. Both of these events zoomed in
with a cheerful supper and continued on with an introduction game (treasure hunt) where families approached each other and asked questions. Kinder Convo was the neighboring activity where future students walked hand in hand to conversation sticks with their leaders to discuss questions. Children answered questions about what made them happy, how they made friends or what their favourite foods were. Finding things in common with each other was the discovery portion of the exercise, helping to build bonds with each other before the first school bells have even rung. Then each student received a transition book provided by M.O.D.E.L Project and a gift bag. M.O.D.E.L Project in partnership with St. Martin’s School and A.L. Horton School hosted this event.

Rosanne Fortier Scientific learning was cool and hot for the first session of Explosive Science at Vegreville Centennial Library this summer. Carmen Heisler, Library Programmer told the kids that she didnâ€™t try the experiments beforehand because she wanted it to be a surprise for her too. The Screaming Spoon experiment had the kids
put a spoon down with dry ice to make it sound similar to screaming. What boomed in after this was the Bubble Dome experiment which was where dry ice was put in a bowl of warm water and then soap was placed around the edges of the bowl and a big smoke dome came out of the bowl. This experiment was a crowd-pleaser.

Michael Simpson Editor Vegreville celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Pysanka in style with a formal program on August 29, sandwiched between a series of family events including a Kinsmen/Elks/ Kinettes pancake breakfast, artist market, live music provided by Perogies and Jam, face painting, Ukrainian dancing from Vegreville’s Promin Dancers, and a strong, stern presence by the RCMP in their splendid Red Serge, the tie-in that was promoted all summer-long through Impact Vegreville’s Paint the Town Red campaign. Following a processional RCMP march complete with pipes and drums and mounted riders that f lanked the walkway as invited original Pysanka committee members and current dignitaries took their place beneath the egg, Chamber of Commerce President Darcie Sabados welcomed the crowd

and read aloud a message from Kay McKenzie, who had been invited to speak but was unable to attend. Virgil Moshansky instead relayed the story of the Pysanka to the crowd, from the inspirational design work by Paul Sembaliuk to the critical connections that led to Dr. Resch, an American computer scientist from Utah who was able to book time on the NOR AD defense computer after hours to work out the calculations to design the egg’s shape. “When I took on the job, I assumed that surely in the history of mankind someone had developed the mathematics for an ideal chicken egg shape,” Resch was quoted as saying by Moshansky. During the design process, Dr. Resch set nine scientif ic and mathematical f irsts.

dedicated Ralph Gorrie” and the Town of Vegreville itself, which on the day of the anniversary as much as the initial celebration 40 years earlier, had contributed substantially in funding and manpower to help the Chamber realize the end product of its 9 months of planning and preparation. Speaking on behalf of the RCMP was Deputy Commissioner Marianne Ryan, who is not only one of the nation’s top cops, but a 31-year veteran of the force. Deput y Commissioner Ryan brought greetings on behalf of the RCMP. “The f irst thing I had wanted to learn from my Ukrainian friends was how to say the word ‘Pysanka’… I hope [I’m] close,” she said. “I was surprised to learn that virtually everyone I asked had some interesting fact or story to tell me about the Pysanka... most
signif icant was to be reminded about the RCMP connection to the Pysanka that was built 40 years ago to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the RCMP. I was truly touched and honoured to learn that the Pysanka symbolizes the experiences of the early settlers of the Vegreville area – and the enduring support they – and the generations following – have generously afforded the RCMP in our efforts to keep this community safe throughout its history,” Ryan said. The Vegreville Legion made a special presentation to the RCMP with a friendship award, presented to new detachment commander Sgt. Jerr y Nutbrown by Legion President Diane Fausak and 2nd Vice President Terry Kuzyk. Mazankowski Way recognized At the close of the ceremony, Vegreville Mayor My ron Hayduk switched gears as the Town did a
2-1 ceremony special. Hayduk formally announced the dedication of Mazankowski Way, a portion of 50 Street in Vegreville’s downtown, in honour of the former Deputy Prime Minister of Canada, and Vegreville’s former MP for decades, Don Mazankowski, who was in attendance that day with some invited close friends. “Dedicating this important artery of Vegreville recognises its signif icance and importance over the years,” Mazankowski said. “For it is on this street the leaders, entrepreneurs, administrators and important professionals discharged their responsibilities on behalf of this remarkable community. For me it is an anchor that will serve as a reminder of the experiences and the memories throughout the almost 50 years we resided here.” True to historic form, the former politician couldn’t resist the urge to tell one more joke in front of the crowd. “This occasion reminds me of
a similar event involving the Rt Honourable John Diefenbaker, Canada’s 13th Prime Minister. In 1978 the community of Two Hills dedicated a street in his honour. Upon acceptance of this honour he observed that now everyone could walk all over him and he wouldn’t be able to do a thing about it,” Maz quipped before resuming his serious tone. “This dedication has profound meaning for our family. We spent almost 50 years in this community. Our roots are deeply entrenched. We have lived, loved, laughed, laboured and learned. We raised a family, built a business, participated in the community, launched a political career, nurtured and sustained many friendships. The privilege to serve in public off ice is the greatest honour. Moreover, it is not the honour alone which one receives and carries but it is the vision, the legacy, the wisdom and leadership which one leaves behind.” Following the ceremony, one last treat was awarded to the crowd as Peace Off icer Ken Podoborozny offered his neck to the dunk tank for charity, raising a few hundred dollars for the pleasure of watching him take a plunge… or f ive.

Harvest Safety Week Agri-News An Alberta Agriculture and Forestry (AF) specialist says it’s important to make a plan to ensure everyone gets home safely this harvest season. “The safety conversation around ‘no one gets hurt’ needs to be the first conversation, first action and first thought farm owners and workers have as they go to work each day,” says Kenda Lubeck, a farm safety coordinatorwho works near Grande Prairie. “Common discussion around the plan to avoid identified hazards and work to the optimum, not necessarily the maximum, should take place early and often in the harvest season to ensure everyone makes it home safely each night.” There are many hazards to identify during harvest time. Following are some common hazards and actions on how to eliminate or minimize them. Operating huge harvest equipment – it’s no surprise that the number one cause of injury or death to farm workers involves machinery and equipment. Those with the task of using equipment such as combines, swathers and tractors
need to be properly trained. Proper training not only increases the operator’s skill and confidence in running the equipment, but also instills a healthy respect for the size and amount of damage these types of machinery can do. It’s also important to do some preharvest work before hitting the fields. Ensure all machines have been properly maintained and are in good working order prior to starting fall work. Check all fields in places where there may be changes from previous work such as debris or washouts. Make sure anyone heading out to work on equipment has some form of communication such as a cell phone or a two-way radio in case they need to call for help. Fatigue – many farmers feel the need to push themselves for maximum production during harvest. Some see not getting their crop off in a certain amount of time as a bigger risk than making a poor choice due to fatigue. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Farmers should plan for optimum production which means they are harvesting at a rate that has maximum benefits to their
health and production. This will minimize or eliminate all risks. The Canadian Census of Agriculture found that fatigue is a major factor in causing farm-related injuries. To ward off fatigue, it’s important for workers to: - get adequate sleep - this means parking your worries at the bedroom door and regularly getting a good night’s rest - eat nourishing food to keep your mind and body sharp - stay hydrated with plenty of water - incorporate some healthy activity in your day’s work - if you find yourself in the cab of a tractor for hours on end be sure to stop periodically and go for a walk to stretch out your muscles plan for physical and mental demands this may mean adding workers to your team to alleviate the demands of harvest work, keeping a promise to yourself that you will take a well-deserved break after a set amount of time, and not making critical decisions while you are weary Moulds and dust – with all of the thrashing and grain moving comes airborne dust and moulds. Breathing in
these elements can affect the farmers’ and farm workers’ health and comfort, and, for someone with allergies, it can be life-threatening. It is important to control exposure to dusts and moulds with some specific methods: - have the correct and clean air filter in place when operating the combine - avoid direct exposures to dust whenever possible - properly adjust your combine to minimize grain damage and the amount of dust being generated - wear an approved and certified “N-95” dust mask (respirator) that fits properly - avoid dust exposure in the case of any chronic respiratory health issues “Make this year’s harvest season the one where everyone gets home safe and healthy at the end of each work day,” says Lubeck. “Whether it is shift work with an extended team of farm hands or a few family members, make the plan work for safety. With all the potential hazards during fall work, it takes some discussion and planning to ensure everyone is on the same path to a safe and bountiful harvest.”

Move equipment safely on public roads this harvest Agri-News
According to the Canadian Agricultural Injury Reporting (CAIR) program, 13 per cent of farmrelated fatalities across Canada are traffic-related, and most involved tractors. During the busy fall harvest season, farmers often travel long distances between fields, and this requires transporting equipment on public roads throughout rural Alberta. Farm equipment is oversized and slow compared to other vehicles using the roads, and when certain procedures are not met, this can lead to collisions and other incidents.
Make it safe Maintenance is a contributing factor to the safety of transporting farm equipment. Poor maintenance of equipment such as brakes or tires can lead to loss of control of the vehicle. Check all tires for air pressure, cuts, bumps and tread wear. Always lock brake pedals together for highway travel as sudden braking at high speeds on only one wheel could put the tractor into a dangerous skid. Equip heavy wagons with their own independent brakes. The number one cause of farm-related fatalities in Canada is machinery roll overs. To minimize the risk of severe injury or death to the operator, all tractors need roll-over protective structures (ROPS). In addition, operators should always wear a seatbelt as ROPS are ineffective in a roll over without this restraining device. Make it visible To avoid traffic collisions between motorists and farm equipment, farmers should ensure their equipment is clearly visible and follow all regulated requirements for lighting and signage. This will ensure approaching traffic has time to react to a slow-moving vehicle. Use ref lective tape and ref lectors in the event that large equipment is required to travel in dim
lighting conditions. In Canada, ref lective material should be red and orange strips. You can purchase reflective tape in kits or by the foot at local farm or hardware stores. Dust-covered signage and lights make farm machinery less visible to motorists and dust-covered machinery causes poor visibility for the operator, who may not see oncoming traffic. Be sure to clean farm equipment prior to transportation to minimize the risk of collision due to poor visibility. It is important to note that regulated requirements for lighting and signage on public roadways include the use of a slow-moving vehicle (SMV) sign. The SMV sign must be properly mounted, clean and not faded. It must be positioned on the rear of the tractor
SEPTEMBER 2, 2015
or towed implement and clearly visible. SMV signs must only be used on equipment travelling less than 40 km/hr. Plan the route Farmers should check their route prior to starting out with farm equipment to be sure equipment will fit on all roads and bridges and that there are no low-hanging power lines along the route. If equipment is too wide to fit safely into one lane, approaching traffic could clip the machinery or become blocked while crossing a bridge. Equipment that is too tall could come in contact with a power line. Use a pilot vehicle as a guide for large machinery and to warn motorists of oncoming large equipment. For the safety of all motorists, it is highly recommended that farmers move equipment during high-
visibility daylight hours and during periods of light traffic. Avoid busy roads whenever possible, even if travel time will be longer. If your route takes you across a rural railway crossing, be aware that some crossings have poor visibility. Always stop and make sure the way is clear before crossing. The people factor Anyone moving equipment, especially on public roads, should be trained in how to use the equipment and must hold a valid a driverâ€™s license. Inexperienced operators can make mistakes when they are not used to the speed and maneuverability limitations of farm equipment. It is advisable to read the operatorâ€™s manual for each machine and observe any precautions indicated for road travel. Some tractors can free-wheel in higher gears, which can be very dangerous when travelling down a hill. Use lower gear ranges when climbing or descending hills. Never take extra riders on equipment. Extra riders on farm equipment are a distraction to the operator and are at risk of falling off the machinery and being run over. Each person in the machine should be secured with a seatbelt. Safe driving tips Farm machinery operators can make road travel safer for themselves and others by observing safety
News Advertiser insider PAGE 5
precautions. Travel at a speed that will allow the operator to maintain full control at all times. Slow down when making turns or rounding curves. If needed, pull over when there is a suitable area to allow backed-up traffic to pass. Make sure the area is sufficiently wide and solid enough to handle the equipment. Once on a public road, obey all traffic laws and signs. Always wear your seatbelt and use signal lights when turning. Never use a cell phone while transporting equipment. The distracted driving law, along with all other rules of the road, is in full effect while driving farm machinery on public roads and highways.

Vegreville Library’s still in patio season Vegreville Centennial Library’s patio is an inviting space that anyone can enjoy and take advantage of in nice weather. This patio has been open since the spring of 2014 yet not enough people seem to be aware of it, Library Manager Donna Williams said. “The patio is opened during any day in fall, spring and summer that has nice weather in it. The purpose of this patio is to give readers a space to relax, read and eat. People can bring their lunch and sit outside to eat it. It’s a way to be at the library and enjoy the great outdoors,” Williams said. “The library uses the space for a lot of their programming and programs. We take the kids outside and they always have a great time in the patio.” (Rosanne Fortier/Photo)

Rosanne Fortier Drag racing is a fun sport for honest thrill-seekers. On August 16, 26 racers participated in the third race of the season. â€œEverything in this race went really smoothly. The cars were running faster and faster
during the day. A lot of prizes went out and we had no problems or incidents on the track.â€? Darren Berezan, President of VDRA said. Proceeds from this third race of the 2015 season will go to VTSS.
