Local News Persona Grata Regatta Community Supports Local Rowing Teams Nick O’Dea Reporter

Members, volunte ers an d sp e c tato rs alike all stood on the

banks of the Vermillion Provincial Park reservoir to enjoy a full day of competitive rowing.

The 3rd annual Head of Vermilion regatta was held on Saturday, Sept. 28. Teams from all across the province visited to take part in the competition, which was hosted by the Lakeland College rowing team and the Lakeland rowing club. Organizer Peter Walsh said that rowing is a great sport for youth to use to stay in shape and help deal with stress. He was pleased with the turn-out, but admitted he was even happier the weather had cooperated. “We attempted this regatta in 2001 and the weather was terrible and we

had to cancel,” Peter said. “In 2010 we had great weather but it was almost too hot. Today we have drop-dead gorgeous weather.” The summer circuit of rowing is often the most difficult, according to Peter, because the weather can cause participants to exhaust much quicker, and possibly dehydrate. “Injuries are rare and thankfully we’ve never had anything like that happen,” he said. “Usually it’s just cold and maybe you get some blisters.” Peter expects many sore hands by the end of the day. “Today I am expecting some really good competition. With the wind not a factor, this certainly makes the boats a lot faster, so we’re going to see some really fast times.” Although not a side-by-side race, th e co m p etiti o n wa s ti m e d u si n g relays. Member of the Lakeland rowing team and club, as well as a member of the Head of Vermilion Committee, Emily Birchfield said she became interested in competitive rowing when she found it was offered at the school. “I found that it wouldn’t conflict with my classes so it was the perfect fit for me,” she said. “I hope this will be a good starting point to see where we will go this season.” Emily wants more people to come to the regatta events so they can see how their hard work and practice has paid off. “ It ’s great to se e tea ch ers a n d students participating and watching us.”

RCMP Reports

Armed Robbery / Forcible Confinement On September 27, 2013, at approximately 2:30 p.m. a 37 yr old male victim invited two people into his camper trailer parked in the alley in the 5100 block of 57 Street in Lloydminster, AB. The two suspects then pointed a firearm at the victim and demanded money. A struggle ensued and the victim was bound and driven into the rural area east of Lloydminster, SK. An arrest warrant has been issued for Chase Brent HAMILTON, 21years old, of North Battleford, SK, for Armed Robbery, Forcible Confinement and several other charges. Lloydminster RCMP are requesting the public’s assistance in locating Chase HAMILTON. He is to be considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached. If Chase HAMILTON is seen please contact your local police or crimestoppers.

Three Vehicle MVC In the mid morning hours of September 27, 2013 Lloydminster RCMP responded to a report of a motor vehicle collision in the 3700 Block of 47 Avenue in Lloydminster. Initial reports were that a vehicle

had rolled over in front of an elementary school. The investigation revealed that an SUV had been traveling north on 47 Avenue and struck a parked vehicle, overturned and came to rest against a parked school bus. Both stationary vehicles were found to be legally parked and unoccupied at the time of the collision. The lone occupant of the SUV was assisted from the vehicle and treated by EMS on scene and released. Weather, road conditions and alcohol were not factors in this collision. Speed and distracted driving were the cause of this collision. The driver, a 24 year old male from Wainwright has been charged with driving without due care and attention under the Traffic Safety Act. Police would like to take this opportunity to remind drivers that the rules of the road and associated regulations are in place for everyone’s safety. Collisions of this nature are 100% avoidable and could have had a tragic outcome given the time of day and location.

The Vermilion Voice



An Employees Market Karen Nedzielski Editor

The Vermilion and surrounding areas are busy with a number of oil and water pipeline projects and with that comes the hundreds of workers. This influx in population has given local businesses the opportunity to capitalize on the needs of the crews. Restaurants, hotels, clothing stores and gas stations have all seemed to benefit from the boost in the local economy. The surrounding towns and villages also seem to be experiencing the same with the opening of new businesses, and current businesses extending their store hours to accommodate the various shift workers. One thing that has also been noticed is the increase in immigrant workers.

Last week the Community Learning for Adult Student Society (CLASS) held an information night at the Lakeland Mall to help new immigrants access the numerous services available to them. These people come from different countries and backgrounds to work in Canada. Some come as families and some come alone. All seem to come with the same purpose, a better life. Some are trying to escape war or oppression, leaving most of their worldly possessions behind to seek a safer place. Some immigrants also leave their professions as teachers, lawyers and nurses to come and work as waitresses, housekeepers and labourers. These people don’t complain about cleaning toilets or scrubbing floors, they simply do what they are asked to do. The fact is, in some cases these are jobs that we Canadians do not want to do.

Employers are constantly hiring employees, spending time and resources training them, only to have them quit to take a job somewhere else down the street. A quick glance through a newspaper’s employment section or just a simple walk down the street and you will see the help wanted signs in nearly every window. It seems right now it is an employee’s market. With more higher paying jobs available in the oil and gas industry, the very hand that feeds us right now, may be fueling the employment fire. Nobody is complaining about the added income from renting out a basement room for a little extra Christmas cash. But when we experience a slight language barrier with a cafe employee, we sometimes seem to get our “hair up” slightly and there can be the odd eye roll. It is not that person’s fault that we are in a hurry and our patience has been

worn thin that day. They are simply trying their best to please us by making our coffee or lunch, something that was previously done by students and the odd retiree who was looking for a reason to get out of the house. The lack of local employees willing to join the workforce has in fact forced employers to look into hiring from abroad. Immigrants sometime forfeit nearly a year’s wages in agency fees to come to Canada. So why do they do it? Most will tell you that they can make more in Canada cleaning toilets than they can in their own country in the professions they were trained for. We should not knock them for wanting to immigrate to our fine country, we should welcome them and thank them for doing the tasks that we as Canadians refuse to do.

Letter To The Editor Dear Editor, I have read articles in the past weeks and months outlining difficulties caused by the Foreign Service Officers strike. I just wanted to take the opportunity to clarify some of the issues involved. To be clear, all visa offices remain open and continue to provide service to clients. Every visa office maintains a core number of staff that has been deemed “essential.” More than 1,000 people continue to work in Canada’s visa offices overseas, and additional staff has been hired on a temporary basis to help process visas both overseas and in Canada. Individuals are encouraged to submit their applications

online (at index-can.asp) as e-applications help to ensure the timely processing of visas. The Foreign Service is a highly sought after and well-paid career. Our government remains open to a resolution that respects the interests of both taxpayers and employees, and we will consider all reasonable options to reach an agreement that is fair to both sides – just as we have with three other unions this summer. David Goldstein, president of the Tourism Industry Association of Canada, has said that his members “are disappointed the union has walked away from the mediation process, just as we were profoundly disappointed that they purposefully chose

Around The Campfire Neil B. Stratton Columnist

Well doesn’t three weeks go by fast when you have taken those days off, however I knew that commitments, family obligations and business would cut down on adventures this year. But it seemed everything worked against us this year, a heat wave started off the first week on opening of the 2013 bow hunting season, with almost unbearable heat. The temperatures reached plus 33 C inside the cabin and that was cool as on the deck which faces south was plus 44 C and that was truly unbearable, also care of any hunting success was a concern. On top of that I received a disturbing phone call from my mother, which my close uncle, her youngest brother was

missing when his boat capsized while fishing on Lac La Biche Lake. Lac La Biche Lake in northern Alberta is a large lake, that is cold and can be unpredictable suddenly with weather changes, I wrote a column for this paper of a story as a youngster on how dangerous that lake could be. Ironically it was with my uncle Donald, who was now missing; he and I had to spend a night on a little rock island on the lake, when the lake went from a mirror surface to a raging angry lake. I remember waves so high the entire shoreline would disappear, my uncle Donald was raised on the shores of Lac La Biche Lake as my grandparents’ homestead was directly on the shoreline of that lake. My mother, two uncles and five aunts were born and raised on the lake side, and I grew up spending many summer holidays there as a youngster, sharing many adventures with my knowledgeable uncle on and along the lake. H e knew the lake Tree & Stump very well, and fishremoval. ing was a way of life Pruning then and providing the 60’ Reach family with a living.

strong swimmer at a very young age as well as a pretty good fishermen. My uncle now at the age of 69 years, had much experience and confidence second to none on that lake, but that may have been his demise as his age hindered quick actions in that emergency. Although both fishermen were not wearing a life jacket, they both had life jackets and other water safety gear by their side in the boat, but as they readily prepared to leave the lake the worst scenio came to be. The boat capsized in a large rogue wave, sending both my uncle and his fishing companion into the freezing cold water of the lake, the other fishermen was fortunate that his lifejacket was within reach. After securing his life jacket my uncle’s fishing companion tried to retrieve my uncle’s lifejacket and bring it to my now struggling uncle in the cold rough water. But the rough water and high wind quickly drifted all in the water apart, my uncle’s companion last saw him hanging onto the capsized boat without a lifejacket, as the fishermen with a lifejacket was pushed towards shore. Suffering from hypothermia my uncle’s friend struggled to seek help. In a state of shock and hypothermia he made it to a house not far from my grandparents’ old homestead where my uncle grew up. A call to 911 brought Emergency and Search & Rescue crews and an intensive search, with even aircraft and heat seeking scanners, but found no sign of the boat or any sign of my uncle, the situation looked grim. I wanted to leave immediately and assist in the search and rescue as I have been trained in Search and Rescue operations; however I was told it was over 24 hrs and now a recovery operation and there was nothing I could do.

Well it is that time of year to start thinking about winter and what we need to do to get our homes ready. Here are a few steps that may save you some grief if you take the time to implement them. I don’t mean to be rude but if you are like me and most people we tend to have an attitude that if it is not broke, don’t worry about it. It is that attitude that will cost you a lot of dollars down the road, so have a look at these winterizing tips and do some preventative maintenance now instead of the mad scramble later. First of all check the hose bib, if it is not a frost free style it will need to be turned off and drained before the cold weather freezes the pipe and fills your basement with water. Even the frost bibs will freeze if they do not drain as designed. They must slope down so the water drains out and you should never leave the hose connected.

I tried to partake in my bow hunting adventure but my heart really wasn’t in it so I returned home before the end of the first week with still no word. I stayed close to home keeping myself busy with odds and ends around home. By the beginning of the second week there was still no word, recovery operations had helicopters scanning the shorelines daily, so I returned to the cabin and bow hunting where in the wilderness I thought I would cope better. That evening Sept 6th I received another phone call informing me a helicopter did spot and recover my uncle, I was thankful for that but now had a funeral to go to. The funeral was scheduled for the following weekend, however I didn’t leave as ironically it was only a couple of days away from the anniversary of another tragic loss of my own brother on an outdoor adventure. I promised my brother that I would… always while able, be bow hunting on that day as he would have wanted and would be by my side if he was still here. Which I did, and had a heart pumping adventure on that morning…but that is for another story, I again had packed up before the end of the week and returned home. The funeral was more of a memorial as he was cremated and will be along side my grandparents overlooking the lake he loved so much. There were around three hundred people there, attesting to the family and friends that loved him and will miss him greatly. My mother made me promise to wear a life jacket while on the water from now on as I am a lot, and although it is not law to wear one, it’s good sense. You can now get modern life jackets than are just like an insulated vest, non restrictive and very buoyant for safety. I have always worn life jackets, even have on bush float trips on fly in fishing. I wore the life jacket from the time the plane took off and landed, that day fishing and until bed time, much to the amusement of family and friends, so that’s one promise I will keep to my mother.

A second tip is to get your furnace ready. Open the front panel and check the belt if there is one. Many belts I see are cracked almost all the way through. When they break the furnace will not run long before a safety switch shuts it down and when that happens in the dead of winter it is going to cost you to have a repair person come out. Save yourself the head ache and the money, check it now. Check the motor as well if it starts very slow or not at all, it may be time to replace it. Finally make sure the filter is clean and you have a few extras for the long winter. Continued to next week.

Highway 41 Franklin Wolters Columnist

As I head north out of town down the hill across the old bridge, I pause to remember at times that this was the original Highway 41. When we see the level of traffic that flows across the dam and new road across the coulee, I wonder how we’d feel seeing that kind of traffic if we were standing at Craig’s store corner and wanting to cross to Long’s drug store. Even with the traffic lights as they are, I can see traffic blocked up for long waits. It surely wouldn’t be acceptable. I guess the same goes for all the 90 degree corners after you crossed the railroad tracks and made a 90 degree turn east past the Brunswick Hotel and headed for Webb’s, then another 90 degree turn to head north to go down the river hill and across the river, and head up the curvy hill on the far side. The road proceeded north past the Little’s farm and the feed mill past Stewart Eybens trailer court, and a mile or so to another curve to head west a mile to another 90 degree turn, just to head north again and from then on the road is virtually the same except improved as needed whenever the curve had to be straightened. There still are a few north of Derwent corner. I can remember Highway 41 in the washboard gravel days, and you best not be in a hurry if you valued your vehicle, it was a rough cob of road, “NO KIDDING.” In the early times you crossed Highway 16 just before you got to the railroad tracks and Highway 16 headed past Lakeland College. Remember that road and the

narrow pavement and sharp curves that trapped the unwary if you tried them at too high a speed. A lot of improvements came when Highway 16 was moved further south out of town to a lot of folk’s consternation. Good thing though, think of all that traffic right close in town now!! I remember all the tragic accidents that occurred at that crossing until the exchange was built and improved for the 4 lane we have now. I don’t know if anyone had foreseen the growth in our oil industry and how it was to affect our community, but I can’t even imagine the chaos that would be if the improvements hadn’t occurred. Several years after the new road crossing the river had been done the talk was that the bottleneck of the level crossing was to be addressed by making an underpass to allow traffic to cross under the busy railroad. Looked like an impossible dream, but by some miracle it did happen. Even years ago before it was built, the traffic would be halted for extended periods of time. It’s hard to think of the problem in light of today’s busy road. For years our little town never had any traffic lights and you were on your own and crossing the road was kind of a game of chance. The odds were a bit too high that there could be trouble. It seems all this corner of the country is coming of age as the local oilfields are being developed as well as pipelines crisscrossing our country bringing oil across to Hardisty. So between the oil traffic and the many big B-trains carrying grain and cattle we seem to be in a prosperous area. It’s wonderful the roads are in place to help move the workers and materials to develop all the prosperity. All of us old

ritual of the summer cabin remains intact: open up in the springtime, close and abandon when the weather turns cold. It’s a large, rambling thing with ample space for a multitude of guests. Inside, at the back, the woodshop is packed with tools and materials although no one crafts anything there now. Saws and routers and sanders, their cords neatly coiled around them, line the orderly shelves. You can still faintly smell sawdust, but the tools have long been cleared of its remnant. The walls of the cabin are adorned with an array of woodworking projects that attest to the many hours passed in the shop, where I imagine him whistling and contentedly coaxing shapes from the raw wood seasoned on hooks suspended from the ceiling. He and his wife usually stick around until Thanksgiving when their sons can take time off to assist in the transfer back home to Ghost town, Saskatchewan. This year though, they tell me, they’re leaving early. And they say that they’re not sure if they can come back for another season. It’s getting to be impractical. “Nothing’s sure anymore,” the Old Man says, “except that I’m getting old.” And useless. He doesn’t say that last bit out loud this time, but he’s said it often enough that I hear the proclamation anyway. Always, when it’s time to go, each of them thanks me for stopping by to visit.

They act as though I’ve done them some kind of a favour. Maybe they imagine that I’m kindhearted like that, a younger person taking a few obligatory minutes out of her busy day to exchange a morsel of news with my no longer ambulatory elder neighbours. Maybe they don’t realize that I come for the stories they so generously share with me. They wouldn’t think that I stop by to observe how they gently take care of each other. Surely, I think, they must know something about how welcome I feel sitting with them on the porch under the pines, but maybe not. I visit because I value their friendship. I visit because they know things that I cannot yet know. I visit because our conversations are like mini tutorials, they the unassuming, experienced teachers transferring small bites of life knowledge to me, the perpetually curious student. I visit because their presence comforts me. And when they no longer reside there, when the lightness of a spring in the not so distant future arrives to find their worn chairs sitting vacant on the old cabin porch, I know that I will be among those who miss that presence completely.

We had 5 senior high boys go to zone golf this year in Grande Center. The golfers were Beaudon Rogers, Adam Evans, Corey Rowe, Trace Wilhelm, and Ryley Schmahl.  The Grande Center golf course was quite tough, with many narrow fairways and unforgiving bush.  Our team golfed well and they came in fifth out of fourteen teams with the top two teams advancing to provincials.  With three of the five golfers returning next year we should continue that success next year. Our Marauders Football team has been working hard at early morning and after school practices. On September 20th they would not lay down against Vegreville taking the game 45-13. Great job guys!

I l ove g o i n g to salad bars and pot luck suppers. There is always such a nice variety. One of the best things about salads is that the vegetable that comprise them are full of beneficial nutrients. A pasta salad is very filling and satisfying. The combination of the grain amino acids from the pasta and the amino acids in the beans form a complete protein. The pasta can be regular elbow, fancy bowtie, whole wheat or brown rice pasta. Beans help to stabilize blood sugar because they are a low glycemic food that is high in fiber. A diet with adequate fiber lowers blood cholesterol levels and reduces the risk of

both heart disease and colon cancer. The fiber in black beans can provide you with digestive health by providing the nutrients needed for the development of the good bacteria in the lower digestive tract. Black beans are a good source of molybdenum, folate, fiber, manganese, calcium, magnesium, B vitamins, iron and tryptophan. Since beans are high in nutrients, fiber and low in fat, they are thought to raise leptin levels, which in turn raise metabolism. Black beans are also high in antioxidants. Broccoli is a very nutritious food, with a 1/2 cup providing your daily need for vitamins C and K as well as significant amounts of Vitamin A and at least 18 other vitamins and minerals. The benefits of broccoli include: antioxidant abilities, anti-inflammatory properties, and unique cell detoxification abilities.

Studies have shown broccoli to decrease cholesterol, inhibit the overgrowth of Helicobacter pylori (bad bacterium) in the stomach and aid in cancer prevention. Red pepper is very high in Vitamin C.

Consider Cooking With Canola Oil News Canada Submitted (NC) The bright yellow canola fields that span the Prairie provinces produce some of the healthiest cooking oil in the world. Canola seeds are crushed to form canola oil, a top choice for heart-healthy cooking oil. “Health professionals recommend that sources of saturated fat be reduced and replaced with unsaturated fat,” says Shaunda Durance-Tod, a registered dietitian with the Canola Council of Canada.

She adds that “canola oil contains less saturated fat than other common cooking oils – just 7 per cent. It is also rich in monounsaturated and omega-3 polyunsaturated fats, and provides vitamin E as well as plant sterols.” What many people may not know is that the vast majority of canola planted across Canada has been enhanced through biotechnology to make it resistant to herbicides. According to CropLife Canada, herbicide-tolerant canola is part of a sustainable farming system and helps reduce soil erosion, conserve soil moisture

Cold Lake Runner Visits Dewberry School For Terry Fox Run Karen Nedzielski Reporter

The Dewberry School held its annual Terry Fox Run For Cancer Research on Sept. 25 at the Dewberry chuckwagon track. The students gathered for assembly in the school’s gymnasium before the run and were addressed by School Trustee Lanie Parr, who shared her story of losing her father and best friend to cancer. Parr said the Terry Fox run has inspired many people to help the cause. “This is what the world needs more of, compassionate and caring people,” said Parr. The students were also treated to a presentation from cross country runner, Curtis Hargrove. 24 year old Hargrove was born in Germany into an air force family and at about the age of one, he and his family made the move back to Canada to the Cold Lake area. Known as the Cold Lake Runner, Hargrove

said he has always enjoyed running. At the age of 15, he captured the Edmonton Marathon title for his category which had him compete against runners who were four years his senior. Hargrove completed the 42 kilometre race in just under four hours. After his grandfather’s diagnosis of prostate cancer in 2007, Hargrove decided he would honour his two greatest idols, his grandfather and Terry Fox, by running from his home in Cold Lake to Port Coquitlam, B.C. to raise money for Cancer research. On August 12, 2007 Hargrove began his marathon run which took a total of 34 days to complete and raised $50,000 for the Terry Fox Foundation. After the 2007 marathon, Hargrove said he was contacted by a local radio station who had received a call from Delaney Sauders asking for his help in raising awareness for the disease. At the time Sauders was battling a rare cancer tumour in her foot. Hargrove decided he needed to do something bigger to help. That is when the idea to

The Grade One-Two class of Dewberry School participated in the annual Terry Fox Run held at the Dewberry chuckwagon race track on Sept. 25. run across Canada was born. The cross Canada run was carefully planned out and would start on May 4, 2012 in St. John’s Newfoundland. The night before the run, Hargrove’s driver received a call of a family emergency and was not be able to accompany him on the run, threatening to cause a delay or even cancellation of the run. A desperate last minute ad placed on Kijiji

provided Hargrove with a lucky break as a driver was found for the start of the trip the next morning. Little did he know then, that driver Morgan Seward, would become one of his closest friends. Hargrove said there were a number of “hicccups” in the run including two bouts of illness, as well as getting arrested in Quebec. Hargrove learned Quebec has a law against running along certain highways within the province, and after a five hour visit at the police station, he was released to continue his run along another route. On Nov. 27, 2012, the run had to be put on hold due to the winter conditions as Hargrove said he was unwilling to put not only his safety in jeopardy, but the general public travelling in those conditions. He picked up the run again in 2013 and finally reached the mile zero mark in Victoria, B.C. on Aug. 9. At the end of the run Hargrove raised more than $300,000 for the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation. More recently, Hargrove did a 185 mile walk from Cold Lake to Edmonton in a pair of four inch high heels. The walk started on Aug. 31 and was completed on Sept. 9 and was to help raise funds for the YWCA and awareness about domestic violence against women and children. With funds still coming in, Hargrove said the walk will have raised more than $8,000. When asked what is next for Hargrove he said he will be taking a bit of a break from fundraising but did say he auditioned to be on the T.V. series Big Brother Canada. The next time you see Curtis Hargrove it might be on your television set.

Parkview Alliance New Location Marked With Open House Karen Nedzielski Reporter

The Parkview Alliance Church held an Open House on Sept. 27 to celebrate the official opening of its downtown campus. The campus moved its church office from the former building beside Midwest Auto Supply Ltd. to the new location at 4906 - 49 Avenue next to Striker Lanes bowling alley. The new location will also be the home of The Edge Youth D rop-in Centre, which will start the year off with a Grand Re-opening on Oct. 3. The Edge Youth Drop-in Centre is a place for youth age 12 to 18 to visit and enjoy activities together.

The building was formerly a movie theatre and after its closure, the building had sat empty. Parkview Reverend Bryce Ashlin-Mayo said the previous owners Les and Alpha Harper decided to donate the building to the church and were glad to see it operate as a youth drop-in centre. The Harpers have owned a number of businesses in the Vermilion and Lloydminster area and were willing to donate the building to the cause. Reverend Ashlin-Mayo said renovations on the new location began about a year ago and were recently completed with th e h elp of Le ga c y B u il d in g Contractors, allowing the programs at the new building to get started this week.

Reverend A shlin-Mayo thanked everyone for coming to the event and said that the new facility would not have been possible without the help of the many volunteers and community support. Mayor Bruce Marriot was in attendance for the event and addressed the visitors to the centre and said the church’s contributions to the community are truly valuable and appreciated. Mayor Marriot also participated in the official ribbon cutting ceremony. T h e Yo u th D ro p -i n C e n tre w i l l be open every Thursday and Friday

evening with activities such as foozeball, pool and the youth room also has a number of video game stations. The former movie screen was re-installed to allow for movies to be played on a projector. The new location will also offer a lunch program on Fridays starting on Oct.4, to anyone in the community. Reverend Ashlin-Mayo says by holding the free lunches on Friday, it is a way of helping people stay connected to the community.

School News

Vermilion Elementary School Karen King Submitted A team of 17 cross country runners went to Riverdale’s meet last week. Out of the 17, nine athletes placed in the top six of their grades. There were over 300 students present from grade 4-12. Every athlete from VES beat their personal best. Congratulations to all the runners. Bus evacuations in Vermilion will happen in the afternoons of Tuesday, October 1 (First Wave at St. Jerome’s will be doing evacuations), Wednesday, October 2 (First Wave at JR Robson will be doing evacuations), and Thursday, October 3 (First Wave at VES will be doing evacuations). Please note that your children may be arriving home a little later on those days. Our VES Lunch Program is a registered charity that began operation in October of 1999. The goal of this society is to ensure all VES students have access to nutritious food, because children with full tummies are more successful. The $3.50 lunches are provided on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and include a healthy hot main course, vegetables, salad or a healthy dessert, and milk. This program could not run without the help of all our volunteers and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts (and our tummies!). Many caring individuals and businesses have donated anything from cash to beef. If you are interested in providing a donation, please contact Karen Bowman at 780-853-

4556. If you are interested in occasionally helping to serve lunch (you would get a free lunch that day), please contact Dorothy Cleland at 780-853-2783.

The St. Jerome’s Fall Supper went off without a hitch and as usual, exceeded the expectations of those involved. Principal Allen Chase said that these events are crucial to the development of extracurricular activities. These activates instill a sense of pride and belonging in the students and he believes that is the basis of a healthy atmosphere within the boundaries of the school. “It gives a sense of identity, and the kids at St. Jerome have a great pride in their school.” Photo Nick O’Dea.

Minburn ATB Makes Donation

Anderson said that many of the people buried at the cemetery were customers of her branch and their family members choose to still bank in Minburn. Anderson said it was an easy choice. Hazel Nutt representing the Minburn Cemetery fund said the cemetery is completely funded by public donation. She said it is becoming harder to find persons to mow grass and maintain the cemetery property as it can take many hours to complete.

Rusty Bit Saddles Up To Celebrate 43 Years Karen Nedzielski Reporter Rusty Bit will once again be holding its annual horse show on Oct. 6 at the Vermilion Agricultural Ground. This year’s event will mark the 43rd anniversary for the show and the club is excited to start another year the following night,

Oct. 7, as registrations are being taken for the 2013-2014 4-H year. Since the very first show, the club has been provided with a High Point trophy, handmade by Mr. Allan Coutts. Coutts passed away on Sept. 26, 2009, after suffering complications from a fall, but not before he completed the trophy for that year’s event.

His son Bill took up the tradition of making the trophy in 2011 with the same look as the many trophies made by his father. Each year, family members of Allan Coutts attend the show and help with presenting the award. The Rusty Bit horse show was always a favourite event for Coutts as he was an avid horse enthusiast. Allan Coutts’ wife Jeanette said Allan had

always enjoyed watching the participants compete for the rusty old horse bit attached to the wooden base. She said he thought it was great to see them try so hard for the high point award. This year’s event is sure to continue the tradition of great family entertainment and the club is welcoming all new and former club members.

OORP National President Visits Mannville Lakeland College Submitted

The Order of the Royal Purple (OORP) Mannville Lodge #205 was recently graced with a visit from the organization’s Canadian Supreme Honoured Royal Lady (SHRL). Marg Brown of Lloydminster, was elected as President in July at the OORP 2013 National Convention held in Grand Prairie, Alberta, and will hold the honoured position for a one year term. The OORP is a national charitable organization that offers support to its communities through its member volunteer efforts. The organization also contributes regularly to its national charity of choice, the Elks and Royal Purple Fund for Children, which places

emphasis on early identification of hearing and speech impairment in children. SHRL Brown joined the Lloydminster Lodge in October 1975 and has been a member for 38 years. She served as a member of the Provincial Executive Team for the Alberta Royal Purple Lodges Association for seven years and also served as President of the association for the 20062007 term. SHRL Brown said she joined the organization for the friendship of the other members as well as the volunteering and was honoured with the appointment of Supreme Honoured Royal Lady. She attended the regular meeting of the Mannville Lodge on Sept. 23 and was welcomed by members from the Vermil-

ion and Vegreville lodges as well as the Mannville members. The pageantry and formal traditions carried out at the meeting exemplifies the class and dignity of the organization and its members who were smartly dressed in their classic white suits and purple jackets. As Supreme Honoured Royal Lady, Brown is expected to visit various lodges throughout the country. Her travels will see her visit lodges throughout British Columbia, Alberta and Manitoba before the end of this year. The Order of Royal Purple of Canada has 165 lodges and approximately 3700 members in the provinces and territories in Canada. The organization will celebrate its 100 years of service in 2014.

Elected in July of this year, Supreme Honoured Royal Lady Marg Brown will visit many OORP Lodges in Canada during her one year term. Photo Karen Nedzielski.

In 19 7 7 h e m o v e d with his family to Vermilion and was employed in the building construction industry. A family man with 3 children a n d 7 g ra n d c h i ldren, he regards his family as a blessing. “ We have another one (grandchild) on the way soon,” Bruce said. “I’m very proud BRUCE MACDUFF of all of them.” During his children’s stint in minor

A former member of the Vermilion Kinsmen Club from 1977 to 1992, he held every executive position except for secretary. MacDuff is currently an active member of the Vermilion Rotary Club, is a past president and a Paul Harris Award recipient. This community volunteer has also served on the executive of the Vermilion Agricultural Society, Holy Name Parish Council and the Vermilion Soccer Association. Bruce feels that Vermilion is a clean town and would like to keep it that way. “I get upset when I see litter,” Bruce said. “When my wife and I walk I often carry a bag to pick up the garbage I see.” He believes that the heart of a community is its people, and hopes that the Town


Brent Romanchuk

Brent Romanchuk was first elected in by a bi-election in 1993 for the County and School Board. He sat on the Buffalo Trail Public School Board until 2010 (11 years as the Chairman) and currently continues his public service with the County of Vermilion as Reeve. Brent has had many duties on the County Council: He was extremely instrumental in the creation of the master fire plan, which strategically laid out a plan to develop the fire departments into well-equipped and highly trained departments. He spear head the challenge of leading 13 municipalities to lobby the government to study, plan and construct one of the largest regional waterlines in the province. Under his leadership the Alberta Central East Water Corporation was formed by the 13 urban and rural municipalities. Even with the provincial cut backs to Water for Life Funding in 2013, he has had continuous dialogue with the provincial government to ensure our communities have a safe secure supply of quality water. Brent has been a strong advocate on behalf of the County when working with the provincial and federal governments on issues. He works well with fellow councillors and as Reeve has worked toward a collaborative approach that deals directly with issues. Brent’s strong leadership, knowledge and expertise will serve the County well in the future, as he continues to address local divisional concerns, as well as, County wide issues. He looks forward to continuing his work on Lloydminster annexation, road infrastructure deficits, working with the government for better funding for service delivery. There are a number of major road projects planned for Division 7 over the next couple of years that he has supported and want to see them through. Brent looks forward to your support on October 21, 2013 Sponsored by the committee to re-elect Brent Romanchuk Division 7

of Vermilion will continue to grow. “We need to keep Lakeland College viable, strong and in Vermilion” he said. “In the past I served on Lakeland College’s School of Business Advisory Board.” The Lakeland College School of Business has since been moved to the Lloydminster and although Bruce understands the reasoning behind the move, he believes we need to keep Lakeland College in Vermilion and growing. “The college is the biggest employer in the town and vital to our community.” he said. Another issue that concerns Bruce is the number of empty buildings on main street. Since he moved here in 1977 the population has increased and main street businesses have decreased. “The more businesses we have in town, the more consumers we will attract to Vermilion from the surrounding areas.” He said. “It’s difficult when there are bigger centers around, but we have to create an environment that caters to business.” A love of the town has him worried for the future. “I don’t want to see us fade away like some of the other smaller communities around.” “Vermilion is a great community to raise a family and to retire in, it is a safe and caring town and has exceptional recreation and cultural facilities. We raised our three kids here and will probably retire here.” A Life Insurance Broker and a Certified Financial Planner, he believes his experience will bring fiscal responsibility to his office. “I don’t believe in spending what you don’t have.” says MacDuff. Bruce said that if he is elected, he will bring his talents to the forefront. “I don’t think just one single person can make the program work better,” he said. “My strength is working with people in an honest and transparent manner with a goal of making the community stronger.” An outdoors man as well as an intellectual, MacDuff enjoys camping, kayaking, playing golf, reading and yard work. “I wouldn’t call it gardening. I just plant the tomatoes and my wife does the rest,” Bruce smiled. “I do some weeding and the grass cutting.” MacDuff would be pleased to serve Vermilion further as Mayor.

Bazinet And Perkins Appointed To Board Of Governors Lakeland College Submitted

Lakeland College Board of Governors welcomed two new public members to the board this month. Jason Bazinet of Lloydminster and Bryan Perkins of Wainwright were each appointed to three year terms on the board by Thomas Lukaszuk, Minister of Enterprise and Advanced Education. They attended their first board meeting on Sept. 11. Bazinet graduated from the University of Regina with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. He is the chief financial officer at Synergy Credit Union. “I believe education is a cornerstone to a more prosperous future. I also believe that as a member of the community it’s important to get involved in organizations such as Lakeland College. We have to work together to make sure our region stays vibrant,” says Bazinet. Bazinet’s experience as a senior financial officer, former internal auditor, deposit insurance regulator and supervisor plus his involvement in supporting and evaluating corporate governance structures will be a great asset to Lakeland College Board of Governors, says Chairman Milt Wakefield.

“With his strong financial background, Jason will bring new perspectives to the board on how to continue providing programming and services in a financially sustainable way,” says Wakefield. Perkins and his family operate Perkins Farms, a grain and hog farm near Wainwright. He’s also the chair and founder of Sunhaven Farms, an organization that is owned by 150 farm families. Sunhaven Farms sells branded pork into various markets. Previously Perkins served on advisory committees for agriculture sciences programming at Lakeland. He’s also a member of an advisory committee for the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Agriculture, Life and Environmental Sciences. Perkins has a bachelor’s degree in agriculture from the U of A. Perkins has served on boards of several organizations including United Grain Growers, Fletchers Fine Foods and Wainwright Credit Union. He’s also involved in community organizations and currently serves as chair of the splash park committee for the Rotary Club of Wainwright. “Bryan’s involvement on numerous boards plus his extensive experience successfully managing and operating agricultural businesses will really help Lakeland College. He’s

Perkins has watched the college transition from a school of agriculture to a college that offers more than 50 programs in a variety of fields of study. “It’s been interesting to see the changes that have taken place at the college. All of the industries that are significant contributors to our region are reflected in the programming at Lakeland College,” he says. Established in 1913 as the Vermil-

ion School of Agriculture, Lakeland College serves more than 7,500 students every year at its campuses in Vermilion, Alta., and Lloydminster, Alta./Sask., and through online and off-site programs and courses. Lakeland offers credit programming in the areas of agricultural sciences, business, energy and petroleum technology, environmental sciences, fire and emergency services, health and wellness, human services, interior design technology, trades and technology, and university transfer.

Pipeline Will Cross Under Vermilion River Karen Nedzielski Reporter

Inter Pipeline is currently boring a pipeline to run under the Vermilion River which Land Agent Ray Blackmore, said will take up to 90 days to complete. The pipeline will run 243 kilometres long from LaCorey, Alberta to Hardisty, and will transport diluted bitumen through the pipeline. Boring under the Vermilion River will be taking place 71 metres below the river bottom. Blackmore says this trenchless water course crossing, as it is known, will make it the second longest of its kind in

Canada, running 1.3 kilometres long. Crews have been preparing the pipe since the end of August, just north east of Vermilion along Township Road 512, welding the pieces together using large side booms to complete the stretch of line. The trenchless water course crossing is designed for pipelines to cross bodies of water without disturbing the sensitive environment. Blackmore said the drilling process began with a 12 inch bore under the river and will gradually increase in diameter to accommodate the 48 inch pipe. After the boring has reached the other

side of the river, it will then hook on to the pipe on the north side of the river and cautiously pull the pipe back through at a rate of approximately 15 metres per day. Blackmore said the pipe has to be carefully threaded back through the line so not to damage the exterior coating on the pipe. An open house was held at the School of Hope on Sept. 25 for any interested parties with questions regarding the pipeline or its river crossing procedure. Tim Moran, Regulatory Manager with Inter Pipeline, said there is currently a 24 inch line that runs the distance from La Corey to Hardisty and has four pump stations to transport the product. The new 48 inch line will only have the one pump station at La Corey, which Moran said will move more than 150,000 barrels of diluted Bitumen per day. M o ra n s a i d th e p ro j e c t w i l l b e completed this year with the final backfilling and clean up taking place in the spring.

County Residents May Soon Access Dust Controls Karen Nedzielski Reporter

The County of Vermilion River residents might soon be able to access dust controls for the roads in front of their properties. At the Sept. 24 County of Vermilion River Council meeting, Council discussed


the higher than normal calls of concern regarding the dust on county roads. Some residents who live along the main haul routes used by the oilfield and pipeline industry have already had dust control measures laid in front of their properties. The companies using the route have been covering the costs related with applying the cold mix asphalt. Cold mix is a type of asphalt that is easier to work with and apply than hot mix, and can last up to 5 years with an average flow of traffic using the road. Division Five Councillor Glenda Elkow asked Public Works Superintendant Carry Grant at what the ratio of sand verses gravel, is being applied to the roads. Grant said the gravel mix being laid on the

ratepayers want it the mix extended beyond the first 100 metres, the cost would be $25 for the second 100 metres, the maximum 200 metres allowed. In some areas a calcium product has been used to reduce the amount of dust on roads which usually only lasts one year, as regular grading and heavy rains can wash the product off the road surface. Council members discussed the product MG30, a magnesium product similar to calcium, which might be an option to help control the dust. Councillor Elkow made a motion to have administration look into different options for ratepayers to access dust controls on the roads that are not being used and maintained by the oil and pipeline industries.



Beginners Welcome and ALL SKILL LEVELS!

county roads meets Highway Transportation specifications. In 1991, the County Council initiated the Residential Dust Control Program. The program allowed County ratepayers the option of applying for a dust control material to be placed on County roadways directly in front of their residence, at a rate set annually by Council. The County said the program was instituted to provide safe and functioning roads for the public and Industry, to enhance quality of life and to limit health effects due to dust inhalation, and to reduce environmental and agricultural effects. Currently ratepayers can apply to have the cold mix installed at a cost of $15 per metre for the first 100 meters. Should

Horoscope/Sudoku and Solutions Get out with people you have an emotional connection to and you will figure out a way to alter some of the things you don't like about your life. It's out with the bad and in with the good. Stay positive to overcome negative emotions.


Emotional problems will surface if you aren't willing to compromise. A relationship will undergo some unusual changes that can push you into a make-it-or-break-it situation. Make wise choices based on true feelings. Anger won't help.


Socializing will encourage you to try new things and get involved in an activity that can alter the way you do things and the direction you take. There is always room for improvement. New friendships will lead to higher standards and expectations.


Make positive changes, but don't fall for fast-cash schemes or items that promise the impossible. Trust and believe in who you are and what you have to offer and you will develop interesting friendships with unusual people.

Deal with emotional issues. Call a family meeting or get together with friends who have not been pulling their weight. It's time to make compromises and listen to complaints. Understanding the problem will make it easier to fix what's wrong.

Include the people best suited to be involved in your plans or who can offer the most in return. Love is on the rise, and making romantic plans can lead to an interesting place filled with happiness and satisfaction.

Rethink your next move. Overreacting will lead to mistakes. Consider what you have to offer and where you are best served to put your skills to work for you. Avoid letting people from your past interfere in your future.

Your intuition is fine-tuned right now and should be your guide regarding domestic and personal situations. Someone may try to confuse you emotionally or talk you into something you shouldn't do, but hold your ground. Follow your gut, not your heart.

Sagittarius Capricorn Aquarius


Take a course or investigate investments or money matters that encourage profits. Don't rely on secondhand information. Take control of your financial situation and steer clear of risky schemes. Make sure your motives are honorable and your plans foolproof.

Explore new interests and you will meet people who have something to offer. Romance is on the rise, and sharing with someone you love or looking for someone new will lead to an engaging time and a promise for a brighter future.

Stand up and be counted and you will be recognized for your knowledge, skills and an unusual contribution you make. Enjoy the moment and don't feel obliged to make a quick decision if someone puts pressure on you.

Resolve issues before they turn into an emotional mishmash. A money matter or settlement will all turn out in your favor. Learn from past mistakes and you will avoid getting involved with someone who isn't good for you.

Business Blow-Out Sale Blows Away Expectations Nick O’Dea Reporter

People from all over the Vermilion area poured into the 5th Annual Business Blowout Sale which took place on September 26 in the Elks Hall. From food to clothes, decorations to costumes; a wide variety of items were featured. The Santa Fe Food company hosted a tasting booth where product creator

3 years ago he started processing his own recipes and created a product that he believes people will buy. “When they walk by it on a shelf they might not pick it up,” Cam said. “Once they taste it, they come back.” His products were one of the many at the Apple Drugs table. Local Rancher Glenda Hughes decided to participate after inventing her own product. Glenda was inspired to create the device after she was told that the product did not exist. “He said to me kindly and just kind of threw it out there: Go invent something,” Glenda said. “One day the thought just came back to me and I said you know, I’d better get to it.” She took the advice to heart and

created a user friendly and efficient multi-purpose funnel designed to reach the awkward areas where most cannot. Chamber of Commerce member Anna Giesbrecht was happy with the turn-out. “Since we moved from the arena to the Elks club, it’s actually much better

downtown,” she said. “It’s a much steadier flow of people.” Members of the Chamber of Commerce also held a luncheon at the event where they mingled with citizens from the area. Sammy’s Family Restaurant was serving up pizza and beverages for all who attended.

Amanda Carson was swimming in deals at the Cliff Rose for Clothes booth. She said that in her three years doing the Blowout Sale, the amount of vendors had grown as well as the selection of products. Cam McLeod proudly spoke to people about his variety of sauces. “I’ve been growing this variety of sour cherries since 2000 and I was selling them to processors.” Cam said that selling to processors was often hit or miss, depending on the demand of the product. “In the end they were making a lot of money that I wasn’t making.” Deciding to cut out the middle-man,

Moral Victory In Undermanned Loss In Westlock Cathy Wolters Columnist

Studying game film helped the Marauders put together a first half that kept them within a touchdown of the Westlock Thunderbirds Friday. But an undermanned team ran out of gas in the second half suffering a gutsy 30-7 loss. It was a loss that left the coaching staff extremely proud of the 22 players who dressed for the game and the nucleus of players who seldom left the field. “As a coach I don’t care what the score clock says, but I do care about how hard you play,” said assistant coach Lorne Maier after the game, “You left it all on the field, you played like Marauders.” The Marauders opened the scoring after stopping the Thunderbirds on a third and six gamble. The chains were called in and confirmed the turnover on downs, but left Vermilion starting on their own six. A Westlock offside penalty gave the Marauders first and five. Quarterback Rowe scrambled to the 16 for a first down. After an incomplete pass, Rowe swept to the sidelines and a 94-yard touchdown. Damian King’s covert put the score at 7-0 with 1:34 left in the first quarter. As in the opening quarter, much of the second was also fought in the trenches with the Marauders taking over on down three more times after Westlock failed to convert third down gambles. The T-Birds choose not to punt on any of their third downs, even when it was third and long. The T-Birds first touchdown did come

after a Marauder miscue. A high snap sailed over Rowe’s head and was recovered by Westlock on the Marauder five. A two-point convert put Westlock up by one with 3:32 left in the half. A pumped up Marauders defense came close to sacking Westlock’s QB Brett Snell as time was winding down, but he eluded tackles and ran almost three times the distance to the goal line by reversing his field for what would be recorded as a 36 year touchdown. An attempted two-point convert was thwarted by the Marauders keeping the Westlock total at 14. With only 6.3 second left in the half after the kick off, the Marauders attempted a play that resulted in a heavily pursued Rowe stepping out on his 50. This was a much better first half than the teams met in the season opener in Vermilion. Then, Westlock ran up a 23-point lead in the first half. In this game the Marauders scored first and almost kept the T-Birds to a single touchdown. Westlock would score on their first possession of the second half, a 55-yard, 10-play drive that would end with a second pass to Kash McCotter in the end zone. Another two point convert made the score 22-7. Avery Bielech led a defensive wrecking crew deep into the T-Bird backfield through the rest of the quarter recording 3 of his 4 sacks. A defensive game star, Bielech had a dozen tackles to his credit as did fellow vet Jayden Keichinger and rookie Scott Zielinski, the other Marauder defensive star. Ryley Bates, who was awarded the captains’ game star for a massive hit,

QB Corey Rowe had six tackles including this touchdown saving grab on the Westlock Thunderbird’s Zach Kiselyk. A core of the undermanned Marauders played both ways.

JR. B GAME, OCT. 18 AT 8:00 PM VS KILLIAM counted eight tackles and another rookie Colton Convey had seven. Rowe, pressed into two-way duty after Blaine Armstrong was injured, added six tackles. A dozen Marauders had a least one tackle. Early in the final quarter the Thunderbirds scored for a final time on a five play 40-drive finished by a 1.5 touchdown run by Snell. There was no give up in the Marauders who forced Westlock to turn the ball over on downs again with under three minutes on the clock, Starting on their own 23, they moved to the Westlock side of midfield through key grab by Jarret Eyben to successfully convert a third and six, a 33 yard pass to Dustin Steene and three T-Bird penalties. The Marauder drive died on a interception that put Westlock on their 23 with less than two minutes left in the game. Marauder Points After:…Rowe was named Marauder offensive star for the fourth consecutive game. He rushed over 100 yards and completed five of 15 passes for over 50 yards… Receivers Eyben and Steene were the other offensive stars. Both had clutch receptions late in the second half…Honorable mention to all the Marauders who played both ways for the whole game. Special kudos to the vocal and emotional Keichinger who came off the field just twice and endured a little post-game ribbing for his receiving abilities... Brayden Chilibeck joined the walking wounded after suffering a shoulder injury in Vegreville. Axel Myshak also didn’t dress

Dustin Steene (21) looks for a path upfield on a Westlock kickoff. Steene has the longest passing play with a 33-yard reception late in the final quarter. Photos submitted. due to lingering effects of a neck injury from another sport. Still on the sidelines are Donovan Yaceyko and Joel Brown… Questionable sportsmanship displayed by Westlock as they went for a final TD with less than 30 seconds left in the game. Inside the Marauders 10, they finally took a knee to end the game…Next up for the Marauders is a trek to play the undefeated Athabasca Pacers.
