Courage Canada Ride Hits The Trails

An overnight rain and strong early morning winds discouraged some trail riders for the 9th Courage Canada Ride on May 25th. However the damp conditions still saw strong local attendance and ensured that area farmers were freed up for the evening dinner and dance held at the Innisfree Community Hall. Pictured here Curtis Anderson rides atop 17 year old “Steel” accompanied by friend and neighbour Allan Nutt. Read more page 15.

The green explosion is sure a welcoming sight this year, it was sudden and kind of eliminated spring as a gradual and colourful season, the energy of the color and new life is being absorbed by all. The fresh smells, sights, sounds and the warmth of a clear and colourful sunrise seems to be enhanced this year and that much more appreciated. I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable long weekend, outdoor activities were everywhere and for a May long weekend, even Mother Nature cooperated with decent weather. I was bound and determined to take advantage of every minute of it. I started mid-day on Friday with the long overdue yard and garden chores, however my plans for putting the garden to be in on the long weekend is on hold. My ride-on garden tiller which has always worked flawless blew out a major mechanical part and is awaiting arrival as we speak, so the garden will be a week later this year. But it

wasn’t like I didn’t have a lot to do, raking and trimming my numerous fruit and shade trees, and hours on the lawn mower consumed many hours but the end results were worth it.

Besides I wanted to get things done because this was the weekend I was heading out on my gold panning and extraction course which I was so looking forward to. With a perfect sunrise early Saturday

morning, my adventure sharing friend, Blaine and I met up with Ray Sarasin and his wife Lori, Ray is a professional gold prospector right here in Viking Alberta. Not only has Ray been prospecting for over 30 years, but he has also written a very knowledgeable book on gold panning, sluicing and gold recovery. Ray has been teaching his class for years and many of his students have done extremely well after taking this class and reading his book so I was excited for the adventure. We arrived on the shores of the scenic North Saskatchewan River at a place known as “Prospectors Corner” it was a warm, sunny and perfect morning and eagerly we set up for the day. Ray looked the part of a knowledgeable gold prospector and quickly that knowledge became very evident. With a gold pan and shovel in hand we walked the shoreline listening to a true professional. After a demonstration of his panning techniques we found ourselves in the river experiencing the “hands on’ and truly the fun part of gold panning, and soon with wide eyes we stared at the sun glistening results in the bottom of the pan. I was amazed by the color I was seeing,

“color” referring to the individual flakes of gold. In Alberta our gold is mostly fine gold dust or known to prospectors as “flood flour”. Our first pans glowed with anywhere from a hundred to un-countable colors in some pans, although some colors were so fine they were hard to see…but all collected they added up quickly. On a good day elsewhere, in my days with the older metal gold pan if we saw 7-10 colors in the pan…it was a good pan, Ray without blinking an eye would clean out his pan swishing that much color back to the river. We were a little more possessive of even the tiniest flake, some of the techniques were common since the old days, but with Ray’s knowledge and perfection we were soon seeing a bright reflection on the bottom of our tiny glass vial. The advanced hard polymer gold pans,

designed with gold catching ribs and indent seemed to make the job a lot easier and with proper instruction … that much more effective. After a few hours on a walk about, we returned to where we had first set up. Ray’s wife had their extractor or separator set up, an ingenious design that is fed on a contained recyclable environmentally safe, water source. The separator made fast work of a lot of material with outstanding results, Lori is a professional in her own right when it comes to final clean gold separation. She amazed us with her talent with just the gold pan and how precise and clean she could separate the final results…our glass vials sparkled with clean pure gold. Overall it was an outstanding and enjoyable day, the knowledge truly was the highlight, we brought back samples of garnet, coal, petrified wood, other interesting finds and of course shinny gold. Partially blinded by the brightness of panned riches I pondered retiring from work after the long weekend, realistically my goal is to pan a full ounce of flood flour this summer, and I hope to share a few more adventures with Ray and Lori, whose professionalism is second to none. Ray and Lori are holding another course this coming weekend on May 25th, but it is likely the last for the summer as they are heading on their own adventure in northern BC. They will assisting in a much bigger gold mining operation like those seen on the television shows Yukon Gold or Gold Rush, I wish them the best and know they will do well. You can contact Ray or Lori at PH# 780-336-3532 or at for any interested in Ray’s book or courses, I highly recommend either. If you see what looks like some crazy washing dishes in a river or mud puddle somewhere in Alberta, it just might be me enjoying the outdoors and having golden day dreams.

When the Smoke Clears I got to thinking…they say Silence is Golden, and panned gold rewards the highest price ever…that would make silence a very good investment.

Family Ties Trudy McKenzie Editor

We live in a community that cer tainly sup p o r t s

its own. Where fundraisers and community event planners see strong at tendance as local community members pull together to make each endeavour as successful as possible. Time and again I am told what a wonderfully supportive community Vermilion is, be it at a school supper, a fundraiser for a family in need, an effort to build a home or even from organizations that place special need individuals into volunteer and work positions. Our Vermilion and area businesses and the Vermilion and area community step up. I have travelle d to fu n c tio ns in Clandonald, D ewb err y, Mannville, Myrnam, Innisfree and more, encountering at these events indi-

viduals who have travelled outside their own town or village. Individua ls, wh o have a r r ive d to su p p o r t their neighbouring community and are simply interested in contributing to the events success. Not every community could claim such devotion; in fact I have lived in a couple communities whose individuals seem resolved to ignore the existence of any human outside their front door. They fail to realize that this disconnect is a two way street and such segregation while perhaps l e av i n g t h e m w i t h f re e ti m e a n d perhaps even more spare cash, will also ultimately leave them alone and without support as well. How does a community come to be this way? To have individuals in its population so very interested in stepping up and rendering whatever assistance they can, individuals willing to give and support one another? I truly believe it star ts with the family. You live what you learn and follow the examples that have been set.

If one grows up in a givin g an d suppor tive environment, sees the im p a c t su ch b ehavio urs have n ot only on their own lives, but on the lives of another. If those within their c i rc l e of i nf l u e n ce e d u c a te th e m o n t h e o b l i g a ti o n o f g i v i n g b a c k beyond the family and the necessity of sharing, along with the rewards such obligations offer, the younges t within a co m munit y will s tar t those steps necessary to becoming a strong community supporter. Families who invest their time and generously offer of themselves to their children and their community tend to see youngsters willing to participate and give of themselves as well. When these lessons are re-enforced within the school co m munit y a n d s tu d ent s p a r ticipate in the planning and suppor ting of school events and when these students see the willing support of parents and community members, they come to understand that within this expanded family the lessons of support and caring continue to apply,

they see how so many can benefit; often from just a little effort on the part of each individual. T h e s e a re l i fe l e s s o n s a n d th e backbone of a caring and supportive community. Lessons that need to continue to b e nu rse d al o n g by in clu din g th e young adult in committees and clubs designed to encourage their generous and giving nature. Organizations such as Cadets, Boy Scouts, Girl Guides and the various 4-H Clubs are built on honouring the individual, community and country by teaching youngsters how to become good and contributing citizens. Youth organizations that can be the gateway clubs to a life time of contributing with organizations such as the Knights of Columbus, Elks, Lion’s, Masons, Rotary and Purple Ladies. Organisations who return the support of a community by in turn creating individuals who will spend a lifetime continuing to support the community.

It grieves me to read comments like Liberal MP Frank Valeriote’s who said our government is attacking farmers. As someone with a farming heritage I continue to own land which produces food for Canadians and I understand the difficulties farmers face each day as they head out onto the land. When we first took office, years of neglect under Liberal governments left Canada with an agricultural industry that was lacking innovation and the capacity to meet the demands of consumers. That’s why our Conservative Government made it a priority to invest in Canada’s food producers. Over the next five years our Government will be investing $3 billion to help increase innovation and competitiveness in agricultural industries. We also delivered on our commitment to give Western Canadian farmers the same marketing freedom other industries enjoy by ending the Wheat Board’s monopoly. Our Government is focused on helping our economy create jobs and growth. Investing in Canadian food producers will help grow our economy and keep us on the right track towards long-term prosperity. Sincerely, Leon Benoit, MP Vegreville-Wainwright

Owed To A King Ralph Wilson Submitted

In a land of snow and sunshine, dwelt a wise King. But the King was sad. The opposition is so strong that my words of wisdom are wasted, and I cannot bring into being the laws that my wisdom calls for. The laws that do pass are often held up in the “Chamber of sober second thought.” I will call an election. My servants will search diligently for ways to win a majority in this house. Nobody knows who, made great numbers of phone calls to known adversaries of the King

to inform them falsely of a changed polling place. The King did win, with a great majority. He appointed many people to the “Upper House” so that it became “The House of Sober Single Thought.” The King in his wisdom appointed a neighbor and friend who was known to be a “Great Communicator”. He was named to represent a far from home province and would receive an additional thirty thousand pence per year. He would be held in high esteem by all the Kings subjects and have a fine income for little work. In the land of snow and sunshine

there is an official snooper, whose job it is to find and correct dishonest acts. Three years payments had bought the Kings friend more than ninety thousand pence more than he deserved. He would dig deeper and see what else he might find. The head “slave” of the Kings house intervened. This is my beloved friend. Go no further. I will tip up my piggy bank and pay you ninety thousand pence and the King shall not know what has taken place. He paid the debt in secret but the word got out that this was a “Criminal act.” The King had to leave on an urgent

business trip to a far away land. His trusted and proven henchmen will answer all questions with complete honesty. When the King returns next week all unpleasantness will have been forgotten. He will continue to reign in all his wisdom. The “G reat Communicator” will return to his place of privilege and prestige. The Kings slave has lost his job. All will be “kindness and light” in the land of snow and sunshine. Disclaimer: The above skit is pure fiction. Any resemblance to people or events in any country are purely co-incidental.

Just Plane Fun Franklin Wolters Columnist

When my brother Elmer and I were young we were simply fascinated with model airplanes. In those times there were no kits of parts you just had to put together and paint. The parts were all cut and made to fit together, just all you needed was steady, nimble fingers and some patience. But in our day you simply laid in a supply of balsa wood of different thickness and lengths and you got some special paper that covered the framework you made by hand from a design you bought for a small price. The planes were very, very fragile and I’m sure any kind of flight would have smashed them beyond repair. I remember we made a DC3 two engine model and had it almost ready to paint. Mom thought we needed to get at something else, and stored it under her bed for safe keeping. Only trouble was out little sisters were playing hide and seek and took refuge under Mom’s bed. I’ll let you guess the result of that. However we still kept, whenever we could, building more planes, just to look at, we never tried to fly one. Finally there came a time we acquired a little glow plug engine that was to power one of our models. Trouble was it took us years of monkeying around with it to get it to run. A glow plug engine is a 2 cycle diesel really, it had no spark plug or ignition system, and you simply had to plug a battery to the glow plug, prime the little engine and flip the prop, smartly!! You know the piston was about the size of a

pencil eraser and the little cylinder for it about thimble size. The prop was about six inches long. I’ll never forget the day we finally, after much trying and experiments got a few pops out of it. Finally it burst into song with the most outlandish racket you could imagine and cloud of bad smelling smoke. That little prop blew every piece of paper and whatever else all over the house. Scared Mom out of a year’s life!! After that we had to move it outdoors!! We played with it all summer and had the procedure to start it down to a science, then come fall it came missing when some people we had helping harvest left!! We really mourned that loss. When we visited Dads’ folks down U.S.A way, we found a little Sopwith Camel, W.W.I fighter plane model with a similar little glow plug engine. The little model was held together elastic bands and you flew it on two lines to control it. Around and around it would go and of course very shortly the operator would get dizzy and the little plane would go into a nose dive and hit the ground full speed. It survived several of those escapades but finally was relegated to a static display role. Talking about flying things on a line brother and I found a plan of how to build a kite from a Book of Knowledge set Mom had bought for us kids. They were wonderful books in so many ways. Well using the same balsa wood and paper we built model planes with we made a kite that was at least four feet tall and about thirty inches wide at the widest point. It was a beauty to behold and we carefully made a bridle for it so it had the right angle to pull itself up in the wind.

We had a real problem to find cord strong Haven’t seen them around lately, they are and light enough to let the kite carry it prone to tangle in power lines and maybe up very high, regular binder twine was that’s why they’re not popular now. much too heavy. I can’t remember now what we used, but it seems we had a small ball of butchers string, remember it was much tougher than regular store string. Any way one nice breezy spring day, we decided to try our masterpiece and while Elmer held the string, I tossed the kite into the air. I’ll never forget how it was in the sky so high it looked about the size of a postage stamp, when suddenly it seemed the bridal set up slipped and he wind turned against it and it powered itself in an arc down, down, down and hit the ground at terrific speed. Its first flight was also its last. Our wonderful kite was a mess of broken wood and torn paper. We never built another, after that when my kids came along you could buy nice factory made kites that flew very well.

I wish I’d learned how to strut like someone who thinks they’re “all that”. It would have been useful during those heady days of fleeting importance. We couldn’t hire everybody who submitted but all things went rather great for the duration of the week long event and as a result, the festival was deemed a terrific success. I met many, many immensely interesting and talented people. They seemed grateful for having been given an opportunity and I felt proud for having played a big part in the project. I wanted to acknowledge them all with a personal thanks. In my excitement, I neglected to consider that the Executive Director, while she may have appreciated my efforts, wanted to be the one to thank the performers. So what if she’d never spoken with any of them, arranged their contracts, ensured their needs were met, or bothered to check out many of their actual performances onsite. It was she who occupied the Big Chair and therefore she who would take credit for work done by her tireless underlings. Our names were never mentioned in the official thanks-for-coming form letters that eventually went out from her office to participants. After the festival closed, mine and my co-workers’ efforts were not lauded, they were dismissed. Cards I’d handwritten to personally thank the individuals responsible for making the festival a success were seized and, in my presence, shredded. Ouch. That was tough to take for a sensitive, new age, formerly important person. Later, when I regained my speaking voice and rational thought, I considered my options. One: Stomp into that creep’s office and give her straight out what I thought of her arrogant, stuffed potato of a human

being ways; Two: Whimper and vow never again to be lured into putting so much effort into anything, no matter how much fun might be offered; Three: Request a meeting and apologize to her for overstepping my position, and at the same time acknowledge her entitlement to take the ultimate credit for the success of the project. That last thing is the action suggested by my elder brother and I have to say that when he delivered that advice, I so wanted to rage and kick him hard in the butt. But, after some reflection, I took his advice because, despite the blatant unfairness and humiliation of it all, in the hierarchy of authority, she was the shining Queen and I was merely a ragged pawn who had fulfilled a purpose. I harbored conflicting feelings afterward. I still thought that she could have treated her subordinates with more dignity. On the other hand, perhaps she could not. Maybe it wasn’t in her nature to acknowledge the efforts of anyone else. Despite her title and position, she was not a particularly evolved human being. Years later, the single victory, if you could call it that, is my memory of her sitting there in her big chair, swiveling ever so slightly in her smirk, listening. She didn’t expect it, you see. I think she was so used to the role of bulldog that she didn’t know how to respond when a meek little waif appeared before her to apologize and curtsy respectfully rather than to mumble fearfully and then run from the room crying. Yes, she was speechless. Those few moments in the office of the Executive Director changed me. At first, standing there before her desk, I felt shaky and weak, as though I might faint. But then I began to feel bigger. And maybe, when I turned to go, just a little shiver of “all that”.

Ask the home inspector:


ENOUGH “IS” ENOUGH WHEN RENOVATIONS GET OUT OF HAND PART 1 In my business I often come across issues with the homes I inspect as you can imagine. Most of the time these “issues” are things that I flag for my customers so they understand what is wrong or will soon be wrong with the home if the problem is not repaired. Most of these problems are minor in nature although there are times when the problems are more severe and should be addressed right away. I sometimes get call backs about these problems by customers who need clarification. Many times the customer tells me that a repair company was called and quoted an astronomical price to fix a minor problem. When I say enough is enough I mean several things. One is fixing the problem means just that, fixing the problem not rebuilding the home. Too many contractors forget that money does not grow on trees and they recommend a total replacement of items that are easily repairable. For instance let’s say I notice three missing shingles on a roof that is 15 years old. The roofing company may come by and tell the homeowner that the entire roof should be replaced as the shingles are wearing out. While this is true what they fail to mention is that they should last for another 10 years or so. I contend that the owner fix the three shingles for $300.00. The roofing company wants $4000.00 to make the roof all nice and new. As a homeowner myself, I think I would opt for the $300 repair for now and try to extend the life of the current roof for another 10 years. To be countined WWW.BORDERHI.COM/POSTS

Report From the Hill Government Of Canada Launches Call For Proposals For Projects Led And Inspired By Seniors Leon Benoit, MP Submitted Leon Benoit, Member of Parliament for Vegreville – Wainwright, is encouraging organizations that work to promote the well-being of Canada’s seniors to apply for federal funding. The 2013-2014 call for proposals for community-based projects under the New Horizons for Seniors Program launched on May 22, 2013. Organizations can receive up to $25,000 in funding per year and must address one or more of the program’s five objectives: volunteering, mentoring, expanding awareness of elder abuse, social participation and capital assistance. “We know how important it is to provide meaningful programs and activities involving seniors,” said MP Benoit. “This is just one more way we can help support organizations in their goal to promote and support the quality of life of Canadian seniors.”

“The New Horizons for Seniors Program helps seniors put their experience to use through volunteerism and mentorship,” added Benoit. “By investing in these community projects, our government is improving both the quality of life for Canadian seniors and their neighbourhoods.” The application deadline for community-based projects is July 5, 2013 for all of Canada, except Quebec. For more information about the call for proposals, visit www. Harper Government Creates New Jobs for Canadian Youth in Vegreville - Wainwright Students in Vegreville - Wainwright will gain valuable work experience this summer, as a result of the Government of Canada’s Canada Summer Jobs initiative. Leon Benoit, Member of Parliament for Vegreville - Wainwright, made the announcement today on behalf of the Honourable Diane Finley, Minister of Human Resources and

Skills Development. “Creating summer jobs for students benefits not only youth and employers, but also local economies across the country,” said MP Benoit. “Canada Summer Jobs is yet another excellent example of how our government is creating jobs and economic growth.” Vegreville – Wainwright received $420,296 in Canada Summer Jobs funding to hire 105 students. Canada Summer Jobs helps students gain the skills and experience they need to be successful now and in the future, while earning money for the upcoming school year. Canada Summer Jobs is an important part of the Government of Canada’s Youth Employment Strategy (YES), which also includes the Skills Link and Career Focus programs. With an annual budget of more than $300 million, YES helps youth obtain career information, develop employment skills, find jobs and stay employed. Economic Action Plan (EAP) 2013 proposes an additional investment of $70

million over three years in YES to support 5 000 more paid internships. This is further to the extra $50 million that was invested through EAP 2012 to enhance YES with a new initiative that connects young Canadians with jobs that are in high demand and helps them develop tangible skills and gain work experience. Youth employment programs are part of the Government of Canada’s broader strategy to create an educated, skilled and flexible workforce. The Government underscored its commitment to this strategy in Canada’s Economic Action Plan. A key component of the Plan is to create more and better opportunities for Canadian workers through skills development.

St. Jerome School News Margaret McCormack Submitted

2013 G ra duati o n wa s a b e a u tiful day celebrating the accomplishments and successes of thirty-eight incredible young men and women. The Graduation Day and the many years of schooling were appropriately summed up in the theme “More than a Memory”. Graduates and their families gathered at Holy Name of Jesus Parish for the Graduation Mass at 3:00 p.m. officiated by Father Adam. It was a beautiful service ending with the Graduates passing on their candle flame, which represents their spirit, to a younger sibling or St. Jerome student so their presence will always be felt in the hallways and classrooms of St. Jerome’s. The Graduates and their guests enjoyed a delicious meal prepared by Colleen Hozak at the Regional Centre with th e ce re m o n i es fo ll owi n g at 7:00 p.m. Mr. Chase was the Master of Ceremonies and along with Mrs. Green introduced the graduates. The Class Video, School Prayer, Tributes to staff and parents followed. Presentations were made by the CWL to the grad class followed by Remember When’s. Speeches were given by a variety of dignitaries and then guest speaker Mr. MacMillan shared his memories, thoughts and perspectives with the class. Thank you speeches and gifts were presented

to Mr. MacMillan and the organizers, Michelle Wilson, and Crystal Jackson. After the Presentation of the Gavel from this year’s president, Marina P owe r, to n ex t ye a r ’s p re s i d e n t, Lyndsie Elliot, Valedictorian, Sean Krys, gave a very heartfelt speech. Mrs. Green then introduced the graduates as Mr. Chase and Mr. Whelan handed out the certificates. Af ter th e cerem o nies ever yo n e enjoyed watching the graduates and their escorts during the Grand March and the first two dances with their escorts and parents. Congratulations to the St. Jerome’s Graduating Class of 2013: Travis B erg, Tyler B erg, Paul Conlon, Sean Earle, Todd Evans, J essie Lynn G erski, R yan H unter, Madisyn Kasyan, Meagan Klatt, Taylor Klatt, Zachary Koebel, Sean Krys, Gina Kuneff, Nathan Lamash, Marc Andel Langawin, Kirk Lawrence, Niek Looze, Meghan Martin, Callum MacMillan, Spencer McCormack, Stacie McCrea, Melissa McNeil, Beni Nichols, Devon Pottle, Marina Power, Kayla Pulyk, Nathan Rochford, Katrina Rolph, Skyla Rolph, Meaghan Roth, Nathan Sancaster, Hannah Sanson, Andre Sommer, Ashlea Spencer, Heidi Stoyko, Taylor Veitch, and Melyne Yarmuch.

J. R. also hosted its annual school track meet last Friday; all junior high students were out competing, and many senior high students helped to run events, score keep, tally scores, and distribute ribbons. Despite the weather that changed second to second between cloudy, sunny, rainy, and windy, our junior athletes were at it full force! Several even broke personal and school records! Staff juggled teaching the regular classes, supervising various track events, and keeping up with the cafeteria line. A chaotic day it was! Recently, several students in Miss

To’s s e n i o r h i g h a r t cl a s s s e ize d th e o p p o r tu n i t y w h e n th ey we re approached to do some painting for Kiddie Oasis at the Vermilion Regional Center. The painting crew consisted of grade 12 students Paige Bardoel, David McKimmon, Nicole Smith, and Taylor Phillips. For 3 classes (4 hours total) they planned, drew, and painted an image of a vibrantly colored hot air balloon amidst the already-established wall mural. As I supervised them, I was impressed with their cooperation, efficiency, and skill. Thanks to Kiddie Oasis for the invitation to do this project! “The J.R. Robson Track and Field team had an awesome day at the Lloydminster District Track Meet,” said

Coach Felt last week. All athletes will be progressing to the Zone Competition where athletes will return to Lloydminster on May 29. Alexis Neuman, Beaudon Rogers, Chad Andreychuk, Shanna Gould, Grace Kinley, Wilson Quon, Tim Yaceyko, and David McKimmon will be attending. Athletes placing first and second in Zones will go on to Provincials in Calgary on June 7 and 8. M r. M aie r is l o o kin g to exp l o re Europe again!

Vermilions First Heritage Day Celebrating 40 Years of CLASS Diane Mineault Reporter

Forty years ago, Art Boggs had a vision - a vision that would help encourage adult education in the Vermilion River area. This year marks the 40th Anniversary of Adult Education in the County of Vermilion River. Starting with the title of Vermilion River Further Education Council, to today’s official name of CLASS: Community Learning for Adult Students Society his vision has become a reality. Join the celebration that is being planned next weekend. CLASS is hosting a Multicultural Heritage Festival on June 2 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on 49th Avenue. The Multicultural Parade will kick off at 3:00 followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony and birthday cake tasting. The Heritage Festival Committee has lots of entertainment planned including children’s activities, a street market, displays and demonstrations.

Complete your evening by participating in an International potluck at the Elk’s Hall at 5 p.m. Leon Benoit will be in attendance and there will be potluck door prizes, silent auction, a 50/50 draw and live auction which will begin at 6 p.m. to raise money for future CLASS programs. “CLASS is excited and proud to be celebrating their 40th Anniversary in the County of Vermilion River, and so we wanted to share our joy with the community through a Multicultural Heritage Festival. CLASS started teaching English Language in 1974 and CLASS is still a vital piece to the International people that walk into our town. We hope that this will bring awareness to others in the community about our multicultural people who serve and live among us.” states Chandra Blair, CLASS CEO and Literacy Coordinator. In the beginning the council offered Defensive Driving courses, First Aid, Horticulture and Art classes. The list of

courses kept increasing adding English as a Second Language in 1974. Today many more courses are included in their list. CLASS believes in improving life through learning and CLASS core values: lifelong learning, individuality, dignity of all people, the respect of all people, responsibility and empowerment. Classes offered today include: English as a Second Language, Fundamental learning in reading, writing, speaking and math skills for adults, volunteer Adult Tutoring, Computer online Upgrading, general interest community classes and employability enhancement classes as well there are courses addressing community concerns such as parenting, computer training, and technology. Acrylic painting and Watercolour courses are also offered. The society is open to suggestions for more courses as long as each general interest course can be cost recovered. Art Bogg’s vision lives on through the CLASS Board led by its Chair, Gordon Hills

and its four directors, the CEO, Chandra Blair, staff and numerous volunteers. The Heritage Festival, the first for Vermilion hopes to promote awareness of the unique qualities, customs and cultures of people around the world. In Vermilion it is important to support both new citizens and those who have lived here for generations. The Festival also seeks to support a “happy day” for children through games, face painting and numerous activities. A third objective is to celebrate the variety of foods cooked throughout our area. The whole festival will host music, dance and other great entertainment to show off the local Vermilion talent. It is also a time to fundraise for new lifelong learning and literacy programs in a fun way. CLASS is doing their part to strengthen community identity and The Vermilion spirit. For more information please visit CLASS website or Facebook C.L.A.S.S.Literacy. Learning improves your mind and heart!

Spray Drift Concerns By Landowners Agri-News Submitted

The Farmers’ Advocate Office (FAO) has received concerned comments from rural landowners regarding spray drift damages to their crops. Mostly, the concerns have been a result of ditch spraying for weeds by the counties or drift from neighbouring landowners’ during crop spraying. In response to these concerns, the FAO would like to provide some suggestions for reducing potential damages. Following is a list of considerations for rural landowners: General Advice; Open the lines of communications with neighbours to let them know when you are spraying and with what product and ask for the same courtesy in return. County or MD Contact your County and request the Do Not Spray ditch agreement. Counties have the ability to control weeds in the road right of way. A no spray agreement obligates the landowner to keep the weeds from going to seed in the road ditch. Custom Operators If custom sprayers are used, ensure th ey a re lice nse d a n d co m p ete nt enough to know their products and wind conditions. Ask for references if

considering an operator you have not had business dealings with in the past. Aircraft can be used and are permitted to fly below, under and beside obstacles. “You’ve been drifted!” Take pictures. Take notes, including time, place, wind speed and direction, weather conditions. Attempt to identify the agricultural pesticide.

Take soil and plant samples, keep them from spoiling. Record the aircraft call letters. Request spray and weather records and when the applicator was licensed. Document the real damage, actual crop loss, yard plants you have replaced as examples. Approach the operator and request a visit to discuss the damage and a

path forward. Inherent in the business of farming is the ability, within general practices, to have protection from damages when spray drift occurs. This does not apply nor is it extended to licensed spray applicators, including aircraft operators. They have a higher duty of care when applying a licensed pesticide.

School News

Vermilion Elementary School Karen King Submitted How exciting it was to have a long weekend in May that was pretty much warm and sunny all weekend. Staff and students came back on Tuesday, rested and ready to conquer the last six weeks of school. New bussing routes were tried out at VES during the week of May 13-16. This was a trial run to see if the busses flowed better from school to school. We thank parents for helping out by dropping off and picking up children on the north side of the school. On May 15, grade 4 students put on a Simple Machines demonstration in the gym for the rest of the school. They had been studying simple ma chin es in scien ce. Th en, th ey each made their own simple machine. When the other grades came into the gym, the grade 4 students showed them how their machines worked. G reat job at makin g these simple machines, grade 4. Students in grade 3A are observing the life c ycle of a fro g. Eggs were gathered and have hatched and the students are now feeding the tadpoles. To describe the tadpoles’ changes, students are writing a diary of a frog, which was inspired by Doreen Cronin’s books. Cathie Arychuk, who teaches at Lakeland College, came to their class to teach them more about erosion. The students had a blast as they were able to create water erosion in stream trays. Students also used

different models of objects that are used to prevent erosion. V E S s t u d e n t s h a v e t h e a m a zing opportunity to go on a field trip each year.

Healthy Living Could Help Fight Dementia Sourcemetro Release

Many people are apprehensive about getting older because of the fear of losing their faculties. Individuals may worry that dementia could rob them of precious memories and make daily living more difficult.

Many factors can contribute to the onset of dementia, and recent research notes those fac tors include hear t disease, strokes and other serious health conditions that affect the circulatory system. But other seemingly harmless conditions can play a role, too. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle could help seniors fend off dementia.

Ways Pets Could Improve Personal Health Sourcemetro Release

Rather than heading to the pharmacy for solutions to common ailments, a majority of people may be able to stop at the nearest pet store or animal shelter and find a finned or furry remedy instead. Studies that link positive health benefits to pet ownership abound. According to WebMD, one study found that 48 stockbrokers who adopted a pet experienced lower blood pressure readings in stressful situations than did people who did not own pets. Another study found that individuals suffering from serious diseases, such as cancer or AIDS, are far less likely to experience depression if they have a strong tie to a pet. Plus, pets have proven beneficial to seniors struggling with loneliness. Any pet can try a person’s patience at times, expecially when a kitty has used a sofa as a scratching post or when a pooch needs to be let into the yard at 3 a.m. But for many pet owners, the benefits of having a pet far outweigh the negatives. Here are some of the many ways that pet ownership can be good

for your health. * Lower blood pressure: Petting a dog or cat can lower blood pressure, as can watching a fish swim around a tank. Those with hypertension may want to purchase or adopt a companion animal to help lower their blood pressure. * Reduce stress: Stress is something people face on a daily basis. According to a National Health Interview Survey, 75 percent of the general population experiences at least “some stress” every two weeks, and many times that stress is moderate to severe. Research has indicated that when people spend time with a pet their levels of cortisol, a hormone associated with stress, is lowered while their level of serotonin, a hormone associated with improved mood and wellbeing, is increased. * Lower cholesterol: Lifestyle factors associated with pet ownership, particularly a focus on increased physical health and activity, can help lower cholesterol levels. Also, having a pet works to reduce stress, which may keep individuals from looking to fatty foods as sources of alleviating anxiety. * Fight depression: Many therapists have prescribed pet therapy as a method to allevi-

ating and recovering from depression. A pet is an unconditional friend and can provide that listening ear a person needs to talk through problems. Also, walking and taking care of a pet devotes attention away from problems and inward thinking. * Improve physical activity levels: Heading to the gym is one way to get a workout, but spending an hour walking the dog or tossing around a ball for a game of chase and fetch is another way to get the heart pumping. Many dog owners benefit from the “forced” exercise that goes with daily walks. Some people choose to exercise with their pets, enjoying the companionship and the physical activity. * Reduce stroke incidences: There has been evidence that cat owners are less likely to suffer strokes than people who do not have cats. Researchers are not sure of the connection, but surmise that cats have a more calming nature than other types of pets. * Greater opportunities for socialization: Humans are social animals and need to interact with others. Pet owners have a tendency to want to share time and experiences with other pet owners. Pets can provide opportunities for people to get together. * ADHD therapy: Children and adults with

attention deficit hyperactivity disorder often benefit from working with a pet or having a pet as a family companion. Playing with a pet is a great way to release excess energy and focus on tasks. Also, a pet with his or her unconditional love can help someone with ADHD overcome self-esteem issues. Similar results are possible when pets are used as therapy animals for children with autism and other behavioral disabilities. * Reduce propensity for allergies: Children who grow up in homes with cats and dogs are less likely to develop common allergies and even asthma, research suggests. In fact, children who live around two or more dogs or cats before their first birthday are less likely to have allergies of any sort, according to a study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association. Research presented at the 10th International Conference on Human Animal Interaction found pet owners were the least likely to have to visit the doctor. The survey of more than 11,000 respondents from Australia, China and Germany found that over a five-year period pet owners made 15 to 20 percent fewer annual visits to the doctor than non-pet owners.

Hobbies For The Golden Years Living 50 Plus Microsite Release

Whether retirement is on the horizon or has already begun, more free time equates to an increased opportunity to fill your days with enjoyable activities. Individuals facing busy schedules are often forced to push hobbies to the sidelines, as more pressing things, such as a job, household responsibilities, and parenting tasks, are accomplished. Once retirement arrives, a newfound freedom in your schedule may occur, and there can be plenty of hours to devote to the hobbies and pastimes you find enjoyable. According to research, hobbies can have many benefits. They may serve as an emotional outlet or a way to relax. Hobbies can keep the mind and hands active. They also allow for quiet time and mind wandering -which can free up creative thinking. Hobbies can also serve as a means to connecting with people and opening up new groups of friends. There are many hobbies you can consider, depending on physical health and abilities. These may be hobbies you once enjoyed in the past or new activities to expand your horizons. And hobbies need not be crafty in the traditional sense, just about any activity -- even being a mentor -- can be a form of a hobby. Starting a hobby

When deciding on a hobby, you can first take an inventory of your skills and interests. If you have always been handy around wood and construction, perhaps a woodworking hobby will be enjoyable and also may work as a source of income revenue. Other activities that require the use of the hands and mind include knitting, needlepoint, painting, puzzles, quilting, scrapbooking, and crocheting. These can keep the mind active and improve dexterity and fine motor skills. Next, you may want to consider the costs surrounding a hobby. While something like taking photos may have relatively low costs, collectibles, exotic sports, sports cars, and travel could become expensive. It’s important to weight the costs against your finances to ensure that you will be financially comfortable while engaging in this particular hobby. Explore what your friends are doing. If you want to get into a new hobby, ask neighbors and friends what they do to keep busy -- and try it out. You just may find that you’re naturally inclined to do this type of activity and enjoy it. Visit a local hobby shop or craft store and browse through the aisles. See where your attention is drawn and give that activity a try. From building model trains to cultivating an herb garden, there are dozens of ideas to try. Other pastimes A hobby can take the form of volunteer work, teaching, mentoring, joining a martial arts class, taking classes at a college, and

Wildfire Emergency Planning And Livestock Options Agri-News Submitted

Wildfires are a hazard that can spring up quickly and cause major devastation to farms or acreages. Knowing the steps to take to minimize the risk and reduce the potential damage to family, property and animals is the first line of defense against wildfire. A recent Agri-News article outlined the high fire risks and risk conditions, as well as providing information on how to make an effective and essential plan so that you and your family are prepared and know what to do if a fire threatens nearby. This article focuses on emergency planning for

livestock. Know the Risks and Get Prepared; Know the fire risk for your area and determine your plan to deal with the risk level. Make Plans; Option 1: Shelter in Place In general: Prepare and maintain a fuel-reduced area such as a plowed or heavily grazed field with minimum of stubble: the area should be watered, shaded & located well away from forested areas if possible disc or plow outside perimeter, be prepared to round up, re-locate your livestock and provide them with feed/water. Option 2: Evacuation Plan; Have a current list of all animals, including their location and records of feeding, vaccinations, and tests. Make this information

available at various locations on the farm. Have sufficient supplies for temporary identification of your animals, such as plastic neckbands and permanent markers to label animals with your name, address, and telephone number. Have handling equipment such as halters, cages, blankets, and appropriate tools for each kind of animal. Include boltcutters to quickly free animals in an emergency. Contac t your local emergenc y management authority and become familiar with at least two possible evacuation routes. Familiarize all family members and employees with your evacuation plans. Arrange in advance for a place to shelter your animals. Plan ahead and work within your community to establish safe shelters for farm animals, such as fairgrounds, other farms, racetracks, and exhibition centers. Ensure that sufficient feed and medical supplies are available at the destination. Be ready to leave as soon as an evacuation is ordered. Remember, once the emergency hits, roads may be restricted to emergency service vehicles and not open to traffic. Set up safe transportation. You will need to have access to trucks, trailers, and other vehicles suitable for transporting each type of animal, along with experienced handlers and drivers. You may need access to a portable loading ramp to load, or unload, animals. If animals are evacuated to a centralized location such as a fair grounds for shelter and will co-mingle with other animals of unknown health status try to: make sure your animals have sufficient identification (e.g. ear tags or brands) to be able to tell them apart from others

minimize the contact among animals from different premises protect feed and water from contact with wild animals and birds. Verify the health and vaccination status of animals which must be co-mingled handle any mortalities in a manner to minimize the possible spread of contagious diseases. monitor the health and well-being of the animals on a daily basis, whether sheltered in place or evacuated. Seek appropriate veterinary medical advice and services on suspicion of an animal disease problem. accommodation will need to include milking equipment for dairy cows (as applicable). Milk may need to be stored separately from cows of other herds. Milk “pickup” companies should be notified where to pick up the milk. Option 3: Last Resort – Freeing Your Animals Livestock are very sensitive to wildfire anywhere within their sensory range. Normal reactions vary from nervousness, to panic, to aggressive and resistive escape attempts. Livestock are often injured or killed by fleeing from a wildfire into fences, barriers and other fire risks. Once the flight syndrome kicks in, it is retained long after the smoke, heat and noise stimuli are removed. In the case of a fast moving fire, some landowners spray paint their phone numbers on the sides of livestock before setting them free. Others attach identification tags to animals. If you choose to leave a halter on your animal, consider attaching identification – such as a luggage tag. Finally be aware firefighters may cut fences and open gates, if time and safety concerns allow.

Horoscope/Sudoku and Solutions Socialize, travel and do the things that bring you joy. Get together with friends and offer your services to your community and you will feel good about your neighborhood and the new friends you make. Love is in the stars.


Money and emotions don't mix. Spending for the wrong reasons or lending or borrowing should be limited. Go over your resume and look for ways to improve your cash intake. A contractual, legal or financial problem must be handled carefully.


Take care of emotional issues. Nurture important relationships and do your best to make a contribution that will make a difference. Love is in the stars and making changes that will benefit you personally should be considered.

Approach whatever you do from a unique and unusual position. Offer what you feel comfortable with, not what someone asks for. Socialize and participate in entertaining activities that will encourage thought, self-improvement and new connections. Romance is highlighted.

Organization will be a must. Expect to face setbacks and emotional issues caused by someone who may not be sharing the whole truth with you. Dig deep and get to the bottom of any situation you face before making a promise.

Enjoy each moment. Take part in events and activities that make you happy, and most of all share your time with the people you love most. An emotional connection with someone special should pave the way to a romantic evening.

Make adjustments and take the initiative today. Hone your skills and look for opportunities that will improve your life. Focus on getting ahead and forming reliable partnerships. Don't overspend on risky ventures or someone else's talent. Keep in mind that charity begins at home.

Sagittarius Capricorn Aquarius


Put more effort into your relationships with others. Make the changes at home and to yourself that will please the people you love most. Improving your resume and offering constructive help and solutions will lead to greater opportunities.

Challenges may not be welcome, but if you refuse to let your emotions intervene and you are prepared to take positive action, you can avoid a situation that has the potential to change your status or hurt your reputation.

You cannot hide the way you feel, and addressing issues openly may be intense at first, but in the end you will feel better and get good results. Protect what you have and don't let anyone take advantage of you.

Don't take risks, especially if stubbornness is involved. Spend more time improving your home and family life. Show how much you care and how easy you can be to get along with. In the end you'll be the one to prosper.


There will be facts that you are not aware of regarding a job, contract, settlement or medical issue. Ask questions and research all you can before making a decision that can affect your life and future. Pry if you feel uninformed.

The Spring Garden Guide News Canada Spring is the season of rebirth and re-growth. Which also means greenthumbs can’t wait to get back in those gardens! To get you started, here are some helpful tips from garden guru Peter Cantley, at Loblaw Companies Limited Make your garden beds. Rid planting areas of weeds and spread a 4-inch layer of compost or manure over soil. Using a pitchfork, mix soil and compost going about 10 inches deep until you’ve got

moist crumbly soil. Primp and prune. Remove dead or damaged branches from woody shrubs or trees before new leaf growth begins. Prune spring-flowering shrubs and trees only after the first spring bloom. Take some tests. Different planting areas may have different needs. Check the pH balance of soil in each spot with a home soil test kit. Then as new growth appears you can treat each one with the fertilizer and amendments required. Peter’s Dos and Don’ts to get you ready

for beautiful summer Blooms: • DO water the garden before 10 a.m. If you leave watering for the hotter hours almost half the amount of water you apply will evaporate in the summer heat. • DON’T cut back foliage of bulbs until it dries naturally. The bulb needs the green leaves to make food for next season’s growth. Cutting foliage too early results in small, weak bulbs the following year. • DO fertilize roses every week, all summer long. Most hybrids are very heavy feeders and need a lot of fertil-

izer for beautiful and healthy blooms. Be sure to plant your bushes in a location with plenty of sunlight and leave at least 3 feet in between plants for good air circulation. • DON’T forget to experiment with new perennials every year. Each year, we showcase some of the latest introductions and it’s a wonderful treat to find new plants toenjoy in the garden. For instance, try the PC® Campanula – Purple Get Mee, with purple bell-shaped flowers. This perennial acts like an annual with rich blooms that come back summer to fall.

Start With Nutrition Under The Vegetable Garden News Canda Making a vegetable garden is more than just creating a planting bed in the ground and then picking up plants or seeds. Starting with the right soil is key to healthy crops and a beautiful garden environment. Growing vegetables in a raised bed is the easiest way to create this perfect soil, as it is full of nutrients and the healthy microbes that your plants need to grow. However, raised beds may not be practical for your space. Here are a few easy tips to help you create your own backyard plot: First, pick a sunny spot in the lawn where the grass is healthiest. This is an excellent indicator that the soil and the location are right for vegetables. Next, aggressively turn the soil with a pitchfork, removing the largest clumps of grass and weeds as you go. Some of this plant material is important to keep in the soil because it will add nutrients as it naturally composts under the ground. To ensure that the weeds don’t continue to grow, cover your plant bed with seven layers of newspaper. This will naturally break down in time with the elements, but until then, it acts as a fantastic weed barrier. Cover the newspaper with three inches of compost or manure rich top soil and then follow that up with two inches of chemical-free mulch. By creating this ‘layer cake’ on top of the existing soil you are effectively preparing the soil for spring planting. Leave your vegetable plot alone for at least three months, prefer-

ably during the rainiest part of spring. Once the warm weather arrives, it’s time to cultivate. Most vegetable roots grow 6 to 8 inches deep and this is how deep you need to turn your soil. The mulch, newspaper and compost are all the amendments you’re going to need to grow big and healthy plants. You need to remember to keep this soil clean by staying away from chemical pesticides and toxic insecticides. Change your gas and oil power tools for battery-operated alter-

natives. One of the most popular gardening tools for this year is a battery-operated cultivator from Black & Decker, the 20V MAX* Lithium option. Not only is it easy to use, but the company offers a recycling program for the batteries. Since plants act as a sponge, absorbing chemicals and toxins as they grow, keeping batteries out of landfill is a no-brainer. Who wants any of that on the dinner table?

Serving Breakfast Raising Money For Lunch Trudy McKenzie Reporter

The Vermilion Elementary School (VES) hosted their annual community breakfast May 24th. Running from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. volunteers for the fundraiser arrived as early as 6 a.m. to the school in order to prepare the French toast feast. Supporters of the breakfast were treated to not only French toast, but sausages and fresh fruit as well for their $5 contribution, and community support was strong with tables filling quickly by the time doors opened at 7:30. “It took approximately 25 volunteers to put the breakfast together” explained organizer Jean Murie, there were 9 volunteers from the Emergency Services Technology who arrived to assist in the effort along with all of the VES faculty participated in one way or another towards the planning and execution of the morning feast. Last year the Annual Breakfast served over 300 hungry Vermilion supporters. All funds raised from the breakfast will go towards funding the VES hot lunch program, “Currently it costs approximately $3 per child for each lunch and that even

Colleen Symes along with husband Mike and daughters Natalie and Morgan enjoyed the breakfast feast served up at VES during their annual breakfast event May 24th. Arriving early many families took the opportunity to feast on the $5 fair. includes their milk.” expressed Murie, who is proud of the schools ability to provide a healthy meal so economically. VES will be holding a Hockey Day for students on May 30th in honour of the $5,000 donation to the school from the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation towards their hot lunch program. Students

will be encouraged to wear their favourite team jersey, Brandon Baddock from the Oil Kings will be at the school to sign autographs and serve up hot lunch to VES students and the school has plans for a number of games over the lunch hour to celebrate the generous donation.
