CPCA SIGA Pro Tour Races Bring Chuck Wagon Racing To Dewberry

Chuck wagon races were held June 13 through 15 as crowds gathered to watch the action this past weekend at the Dewberry Race Track. This event was presented by the hard working volunteers at the Dewberry Ag Society. The event kicked-off Friday with Beer Gardens opening the event at 4:30 p.m. followed by races at 6:30 pm. Saturday brought in a crowd for a pancake breakfast presented by Dewberry First Responders. The main street market had a number of vendors in the afternoon offering a wide variety of items for sale. Gymkhana started at 2 p.m. for the children’s classes in the arena. Beer gardens, wagon races and a cabaret in the arena completed the eventful day. Sunday had kids activities taking place along with the final day of wagon racing. A roast beef supper was served up at the hall to finalize the event.

Vermilion 4-H Sheep Club Holds Sheep Shearing And Goat Trimming Workshop Vermilion 4H Sheep Club Submitted On June 8, the Vermilion 4-H Sheep Club hosted their annual Grooming Clinic. This is the opportunity for all sheep project members to learn to shear their own sheep and the goat project member to learn how to trim their goats for show. Blair Dow, of WD5 Suffolks, Vermilion, is the club’s Sheep Shearing Workshop Clinician. For the past 6 years Blair has sheared the bellies and necks of all the member’s market lambs and ewe lambs. Then the members place their lambs in a trimming stand and are taught how to

use shears safely and will then be taught to sheer the remainder of the sheep wool themselves. We now have some intermediate and senior members that are able to shear their own sheep. Laurie and Shay Fries, of SLF Ranch, Edgerton came to teach and demonstrate the Goat Grooming section of our workshop for Market goats and Doelings. Laurie and Shay raise and show Purebred Boer Goats. They showed the goat project members where and how to trim and groom for show, taught how to trim the hooves and demonstrated techniques on how to show a goat in the show ring. It was a great day for all members. The sheep and goats projects are well on their way to be prepared for our Achievement day that will be held on July 22, 2014 at the Ag Society Sheep Barn.

In tears we saw you sinking, we watched you fade away, you faced your task with courage, your spirit did not bend and still you kept on fighting until the very end. God saw you getting tired. When a cure was not to be so he put his arms around you, and whispered “come with me” so when he saw you sleeping, so peacefully free from pain, we could not wish you back, to suffer that again.

In loving memory of Susan Howard Nov 25, 1958-June 16, 2011

Editorial

Sutter’s Kings Claim The Cup Karen Nedzielski Editor

The warmer weather has brought with it the renewed interest in outdoor activities relevant to summer. I must say it is a welcome sight to see baseball fields and soccer pitches busy with games and people enjoying the outdoors. It hardly makes you think about winter sports like minor hockey registration and of course the Stanley Cup playoffs. I remember as a child waiting very anxiously for the Saturday night children’s programming on television and in particular, the Muppets. My siblings and I had to wait until after the hockey was over and in our small, modest house

we had to keep the noise to a minimum so our dad could hear the game. When we would get a little too noisy, he would simply say, “Hey, keep it quiet, my Muppet show is on.” Finally that annoying game would come to an end and it would be our turn for the television. The Stanley Cup made a visit to Vermilion this past year and it was interesting to see all the people who stood in line to have a photo taken with the cherished hockey trophy. If I were not covering the event, I may not have been one of those people standing in line. I was never really a hockey fan and still don’t fancy myself as a follower of the professional sport, but lately I have found myself glued to the television, enthralled with the finals between the Kings and

Rangers. I wanted to see if Darryl Sutter and the Kings would take the cup again. Two years ago, Sutter and his team claimed the cup and as a thank you to his hometown community, he brought the cup to Viking, Alberta, for anyone who wanted to see it. Sutter made a special visit to the Viking lodge where he gave the residents an opportunity to see and touch the cup. Sutter said he wanted to do it as a ‘thank you’ to them as many of those very same people sat in the bleachers of his hometown and cheered on Darryl and his brothers as they played in the local minor hockey league, with a number of the Sutter boys eventually progressing to the NHL and stardom. During the games Darryl shows very little emotion and comes across as a

stern, focused leader of his band of soldiers. The fact is Darryl is a compassionate man who shows his gratitude to the community he still lives in, in the off season. He still farms on the family’s land and comes across as an everyday, normal farmer from the Town of Viking. He still puts his boots on, one at a time, just like the rest of us. It seems he is proud to be able to represent his community on an international level, and seems to know how he got to the King’s throne, and who helped him to get to where he is today. I have to wonder if the Cup will pay another visit to the small Scandinavian community after the recent win. I guess we will wait and see.

Letter to the Editor On February 22, the 11th Annual Cutter Rally was held. The weather did not really co-operate with the organizers as it was a cold day of -16 with a wind chill factor. Our committee consists of members of the Midwest Miniature Horse and Pony Club, the East West Driving Chapter, the Forresters and the Draft Horse Committee of the Lloydminster Agriculture Exhibition. Thanks to the people who came out and either drove or rode the route (this was the first year we had horseback riders) – we really appreciate the fact that you came out to attend our event even in such cold weather. We had 35

units entered with 42 participants this year. People attended from Onion Lake, North Battleford, Saddle Lake, Cochin, Neilburg, Kitscoty, Lone Rock, Denzil, Cut Knife, Calgary as well as Vermilion and Lloydminster areas. After the rally, approximately 280 enthusiasts came out to enjoy a wonderful roast beef dinner. To host this event, we rely on a tremendous number of volunteers who do everything from registration; live afternoon entertainment; manning the computers all day; rolling hands or being out in the cold welcoming all of our participants to get the dice rolled for the top score; our people that tend

the road crossings, help in our trail grooming and supply equipment – many of these people come out to help us year after year. Our rally winner this year had a choice of a two-seater cutter and harness valued at $2,50 0, travel voucher valued at $2,500 or a cash prize of $2,500. Our winner this year was Diane Schmidt of Vermilion who chose the cash prize. Congratulations! The funds we raise from the cutter rally are divided equally between the Prairie North Health Region and the Canadian Cancer Society. This year

we donated $2,120.71 to each group. Our goal for the PNHR was to fund the purchase of one or possibly two vein finders for the cancer ward of the hospital. The total amount donated to both of these organizations for the past 11 years is an amazing $78,501.30. Good job! Our committee is already preparing for the 2015 cutter rally. I am very proud to be a part of this hard working group of people so thanks to all of our volunteers over the years. Della Wist Cutter Rally Chairperson.

Around The Campfire Neil B. Stratton Columnist

Lately I have had the sudden urge to “q ua ck ” a n d swim in circles in the closest mud puddle. But I would rather have the rain than drought conditions anytime. Besides th e g re e n exp l osio n ha s g ot that much more colour ful with ever ything blooming with all the colours of the many recent rainbows. Even my garden has took off already. The potatoes shot up and you can quite literally watch them grow with any sunshine. The corn is already a couple inches high and the radishes are taking off with a vengeance. Its amazing stuff is growing as fast as it is, cool as it has been. A little heat wave and we are going to be in a lush jungle, bring it on. Hopefully my favorite berries, the Saskatoons, will be plentiful this year. It is kind of scary to see stuff grow that fast, including my lawn and nope not going to complain about cutting g ra s s eve r y th i rd d ay. H oweve r I could use that time for more outdoor adventures. The wife and I did get out to fish for rainbow trout this past weekend in one of the local ponds. There was just enough dampness to prevent some yard work so we took advantage of that. I had a bet with the wife for five dollars for the first and five dollars for the biggest. Well it took her all of five seconds to be five dollars richer,

as she has the feel and knows her trout fishing. Although windy, the sun came out and the fish were biting and before we were ready to leave we had supper on shore and ready for tending so we headed home and did just that. Again the fish were done on the BBQ to p er fe c tio n. Th e wife loves h er fresh caught fish and enjoyed her five dollar fish, but I got the big boy so we were even…and I had more to dine on. Deer fawns have been spotted, or better put spotted deer fawns have been seen. I have seen mom and pop geese with their little long necked gaggles waggling in between them. I have seen some quite big groups. I have also seen some just-hatched while others are still sitting on the nest. I guess the early goose gets the…gaggle? Speaking of wildlife, my wife saw one that I am very interested in and it was within sight of Viking. She was on her way to Edmonton with her boss and they saw a huge Russian wild boar. What they described was a hog in the 300-400 pound or better size range with huge long tusks, feeding with no fear very near Highway 14 near Viking. The field it was in had no fences for miles. Now this wasn’t the first wild Russian boar seen near Viking or Vermilion as many have been roaming the areas for years. They have been past the label of being feral and have been breeding and established as wild now. Wild boars can be very dangerous to

wildlife, animal habitat, crops as well as to you and your family. They have no fear and their razor tucks can slice a human to shreds. The tusks that are sharpened each and every time they open and close their mouth can grow in excess of eight inches long on big hogs. They know it and also know how to use them. There is still a bounty on them, and even have been culled in the Vermillion area, I have harvested several and they provide some of the best table-fare one can harvest. So what I want to do here is post a REWARD…wanted information on live sightings of any Russian boar or “wild” pigs in your area. Reward of a mouthwatering processed smoked ham or “side of bacon” will be awarded if one is harvested. Not only do we consider this wildlife management, for the benefit of all, but I would like to harvest another t r u e w i l d b o a r w i t h my b o w a n d arrows. I have an awesome mount of a Russian boar at the shop of a mid to big size Boar. Full shoulder and wild looking head with tusks in a pose looking like its coming at you about to shred your legs out from under you. As this is one of my favourite mounts I have in the shop, I would like

another of a large one, plus as I write this my mouth is watering thinking of the great barbecues one could have. So don’t be afraid to pass on any information at all as little as it may be, my personal cell phone number is 78 0 -20 9 -5 678 o r h o m e /sh o p 780-754-2798, if there is no answer, please leave a message- thank you. There are 80 sleeps left until bow hunting season, coming fast but will seem like forever, so a wild boar hunt with bow and arrows would fill that bill per fec tly for a hear t pumping adventure until then. As the first day of summer is just over a week away, outdoor adventures are a must and should be planned now, please get out there!

When the Smoke Clears The avid outdoorsmen loves adventure and danger, hunts wild boar for adventure as odds are there is a woman in his life to enforce the danger.

Franklin

Those Intimate Little Farms Franklin Wolters Columnist

Ye s t h o s e l i t t l e quarter section farms of yester year that provided for many a family in those early times. A farm of a section took many people back in the horse or small early tractor times to farm it in any kind of efficient timely way. A little two bottom plow or a six foot one way tiller took a long time to work a twenty acre piece of land. A twenty run drill needed a good day to seed the same, by the time you got the horses in and harnessed, the load of seed in place, and the drill all filled and set properly you needed to get up really early and work late. Good thing there weren’t lights on horses, hey!! It took a lot of time and work to put in a hundred acres of crop on properly worked land and then seeded in that old way and of course you had to harrow it afterwards. Uncle Fred used to wait until the crop was well up and the small weeds emerged before he harrowed the crop and killed the small weeds, as the harrows wouldn’t hurt the crop as readily. They didn’t have sprays then remember. A clean

crop meant you tried things like that. My Father in law raised his family on a quarter section of land and farmed with a little W4 International tractor. He raised pigs and a few cattle, hauled his grain with an international ½ ton and had no debts!! He was not an exception in those times. My Uncle Fred farmed with a little 8N Ford tractor with three point hitch equipment and farmed about two hundred acres of hilly land. He kept about forty cows and had time to take in every ball tournament and sports day in the area. He lived a good life and sold me his farm and didn’t owe a dime to anyone!! He knows every acre of his place, intimately and could tell you where every half hidden stone was to keep it from harming his equipment and every foot of his fences were in excellent shape and his cattle contained. He always drove a newer model Ford car and had the luxury of a propane system of lights and heating and had a Servel fridge before the power came in our area. He had a neat yard and a white picket fence. Today’s farming requires so much more land and expensive equipment you’d wonder where things went astray, Two hundred acres of cultivated land and forty cows would be a sure sign of poverty unless you had a town

job for a supplement. The little pieces of land that were farmed in twenty or so acres were soon made to be in as large as could be and all the little fields made into one. The less corners the better. With small equipment you needed smaller fields so you could finish the process of the working in a day or so. I remember my brother and I worked three days on an eighty acre piece we sowed to late oats for green feed. Elmer plowed with our Major diesel and a four bottom plow, while I used another tractor on a ten foot tandem disc and sowed the seed with a twenty run drill, hooked to our little 9N Ford. We worked long hours as we had to have the piece seeded before we could go to Saskatoon Pioneer Days Show. I remember seeding in the night and not noticing that several runs had plugged with little bits of straw the Viking fanning mill had not removed from the seed and the resulting row crop looking result. My Dad was not impressed, but the crop otherwise was a success. It’s hard to even think now that the four bottom plow and all that equipment was a giant leap from the way Uncle Fred had farmed in his time. We had larger tractors to help speed things up and work the land deeper and get away from those slow methods that worked but did limit the amount of land you could farm. You sure got to know your land as you worked it a few feet at a time. A two bottom plow or even a four bottom plow didn’t even cover the width of the tractor!! We hear now of the thousands of dollars involved in seeding a quarter of land and wonder how the farmers sleep at night with the chancy way the weather and markets are. I can remember when you could put in

a crop and not have to borrow any money or get fertilizer or seed pending on a delivery come fall. I took a drive the other day to see how things are progressing and the width of those air drills is so impressive. Imagine a seeder eighty feet wide. I remember Dad talking about a neighbor getting a fifteen foot discer-seeder and thinking it was rash and crazy. Times they are a changing and you wonder how you could get a feeling for land when you cover it so quickly. I hear though that they have machines that can program the seedfertilizer applications that can be activated by a G.P.S system to apply different rates according to soil testing procedures. That’s getting as fine tuned as the little guy on his intimate farm!!

Healthy Trees, Healthy Community

Keith Marsh was busy last week pruning trees along 50 Avenue in Vermilion all in hopes of beautifying Vermilion. Marsh, who has always had a keen interest in trees, said he noticed how some of the trees within the town were starting to look overgrown. He approached the Town and submitted a proposal to prune trees in various areas and the rest is history. Marsh says the optimal time for pruning trees varies depending on the type of trees and by cutting back the new branches, it will help the tree to grow better for everyone to enjoy.

Lonsdale

The Lightness Of Travel Margaret Lonsdale Columnist

There’s a woman walking in front of you with her heavy cases. She’s on her way to the train station, too. She struggles up the hill with her bags. At first, she politely refuses your offer to help but on the next block, you show her how that heavy handbag of hers can be attached to your load without causing you any duress. She says, “Thanks a million. I would have done that for anyone if I could.” She’s been here before and knows the way while you do not. She thinks it’s you who’s done the favour, but it’s an even trade. Everyone gets to the station and you all feel better for the friendly exchange. Where does that path outside of town lead, you ask someone on the street,

only catching half of the answer for the accent. You go anyway, finding yourself strolling along a stone path next to a bucolic waterway. On the opposite side of the narrow road, a chestnut mare grazes in the sun with her colt. They watch you with temporary interest as you pass. There’s an oasis, a vista not to be missed somewhere in this general direction, but you must have missed a sign during your reverie. At the house at the end of the long drive, you knock on the red door and the inhabitant answers to greet you with a smile. She points back to where you went wrong, re-directing you with a few landmarks that lead to the access used by locals. It’s ‘past the old white cottage and up the grassy lane--mind it’s quite steep---and then the path across the pasture. You’ll see it!’ Her directions are true. There’s a feeling, as you climb between shadow and dappled sunlight, that you’ve been gifted knowl-

edge normally reserved for insiders. You feel privileged, never moreso than when you reach the summit to gaze out over the natural wonder that is your destination. Who needs a tourist map when you have the personal guidance of those who know best, the locals? You’re too old for hitchhiking, or too fearful. People don’t do that safely anymore, do they? The long walk in the country was invigorating but the prospect of a return voyage feels daunting. There’s plenty of traffic. Thumb out as the first car approaches. It slows and proceeds, possibly assessing the character of the people at the roadside. You pass inspection and the car reverses. You’re going near the driver’s own destination and you ride. He’s full of information about local and area sites. You should take notes but that might seem rude so instead you enjoy the trip, this time by car on the road instead of on foot

through the pasture, and try to remember some of the suggestions he makes. He says at first that he can take you part of the way but instead, he drops you exactly at the front door of your accommodation. You are all pleased to have had the company. The music starts at ten so you have plenty of time to wander the premises. There are years of memorabilia on the ceilings and walls. Instruments, photographs, awards, posters, letters under glass, clutter from eras past. Many characters have lingered in these rooms. And now you do the same. You recognize some of the players in the photos. In places like this, the famous mingle casually with the ordinary. You could learn something from the spirit of it. You do. Everyone welcome here, whisper the walls. Here, everyone belongs.

Local Competitor Travels To Montana For Endurance Ride Kat Irvine Submitted The equestrian sport of endurance racing is still a little known sport but according to the Federation Equestre Internationale (FEI) it is now second fastest growing sport in the world in terms of the number of competitions held. Endurance is recognized by Equine Canada as a non-Olympic sport, and it is a recognized discipline at the World Equestrian Games. K a t I r v i n e, f r o m L l o y d m i n s te r and her horse NightWinds Savanah and their suppor t crew of Colleen DeVry, Ft. Saskatchewan, (formerly of Lloydminster); Chelsea Rose, Ft. Saskatchewan, and Sandra Coombe, of Sundre, have been working together for five years in preparation for the World Equestrian Games in Normandy, France in August 2014. The endeavour will cost the arena in the area of $30,000. This clinic was a fundraising effort for the team. For some endurance racing seems an unattainable ambition because experienced endurance riders ride distances of 25, 50 and 100 miles a n d eve n m o re. O th e rs thin k th e sport is out of reach due to the time required and even what kind of horse they have. On May 30, a small group of horse people gathered together at Mistahyia Retreat Centre south of Vermilion, to

learn more about endurance racing in Alberta. Riders came from Lloydminster, Fort Saskatchewan, Vegreville and as far away as Sundre to participate in “An Endurance Affair”, a clinic to demonstrate why so many love the sport and how anyone with a sound horse can participate. In the morning the information centred on an outline that dealt with how to start out, what you need to start, how a typical trail is laid out and marked, how the vet check and rest stop works. The outline was rounded out by everyone in the group participating in conversation, questions, comments and experiences. After lunch the riders saddled up and ro de through on a two-loop, ribboned course to simulate typical conditions of an actual competition trail. The trails in this case were groomed X- country ski trails that edged the Battle River. There would be obstacles that would test horsemanship skills such as steep hills, low branches and even a small wooden bridge. However, the most challenging test for both horse and rider was coping with the stress of being in a group when horses are excited and riders ner vous. They were shown several ways to manage this situation. At the en d of the loop, back in camp, everyone was encouraged to take their horse’s heart rate and trot out their horses as they would for a veterinary examination. After a short rest to let horses graze and drink, the loop was repeated. Many found their horses had settled. After wards there was a potluck sup p er h eld in the ski lo d ge with stories and lots of laughs. We are sure we will be seeing new riders on the endurance trails of Alberta soon.

Making an angel food cake from scratch is both an a r t a n d s c i e n c e. The taste of a homemade angel food cake is so much better than a cake mix or bakery cake. I remember working as a fair judge; I would see amazing angel food cakes that towered to great heights. My problem was that I was not able to crack the code for a prize winning angel food cake, yet I admired those bakers that produced a cake that was both tender and tall. After much determination and many cakes, angel food heaven has finally given up its secrets. Today I am going to spill the beans, so you too can climb to angel food heaven and grab some room temperature golden eggs to make your own successful and delicious homemade angel food cake. First, there is a lot of science behind

the angel food cake: twelve eggs should be at room temperature and must be carefully separated to avoid any yolk. The egg whites are beaten to the soft peak stage. I have beaten the egg whites to the stiff peak stage, but the cake is never as high as one in which the egg whites are at the soft peak stage. Using cream of tartar will help to strengthen the egg white.It is best to use granulated sugar to add to the egg whites for strength, and use powdered sugar when sifting it into the flour for lightness. Cake flour should be used instead of all purpose, for a light, tender and high cake. I used a simple metal strainer to sift the flour and sugar together, and it was much faster than using my flour sifter. Unfortunately the right amount of sugar must be used, as I have found that cutting back on the sugar reduces the height of the cake and produces a tougher cake that lacks flavor. This is a cake that requires the right ingredients, in the right order and handled by the right method. Good Luck. Angel Food Cake

1 cup cake flour 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup powdered icing sugar 13 large egg whites (about 1 2/3 cups) 1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar 1 cup granulated white sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Sift the cake flour, the salt and the powdered sugar together. Separate out 12 room temperature egg whites and one refrigerated egg white. Beat with a mix master until frothy. Add the cream of tartar and continue to beat until the egg whites start to form soft peaks. Gradually add the granulated sugar while beating, keeping the egg whites in the soft peak stage. Do not beat to the stiff peak stage. In the last 5 seconds add the vanilla. Sift some of the flour mixture over the delicate beaten egg whites, and then gently fold the flour mixture into the egg white with one stroke. Continue until all the flour mixture is folded in. Do not over stir. Pour into an ungreased, two piece tube pan and bake for 43 to 50 minutes. Over baking causes

the cake to deflate. Turn the cake pan upside down and allow to completely cool before removing. Serve with a thin butter cream icing or with whipped cream and fruit.

Ve r milion Rot ar y Lookout Marred By Vandals

UPCOMING AUCTIONS

Sometime between the evening of June 14 and the morning of June 15, vandals visited the Vermilion Rotary Lookout dumping a flower barrel and possibly throwing it over the retaining wall and down the ravine, and also removed one of the five commemorative bronze plaques from the brick inlay flooring. The brick retaining wall leading down to the river valley was also damaged. This is not the first time vandals have targeted the lookout as club president Brenda Lee says the club usually has to replace some of the top layers of bricks on the retaining wall each year. The Vermilion Rotary club is asking anyone with information regarding this incident to call the Vermilion RC MP. T he lookout wa s par t of the Rotary’s 50 year celebration in Vermilion, and also the centennial celebrations marking the Rotary’s 100 years in service all over the world. Pictured here is Rotary Lookout Chairperson Loretta Quickstad, left, and club president Brenda Lee as they survey the damage and begin the cleanup. Photos Karen Nedzielski.

TIPS TO KEEPING YOUR HOME HEALTHY AND SAFE:

Q: I LIVE ON AN ACREAGE AND I SEEM TO HAVE

LOW WATER PRESSURE, WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO FIX THIS?

A:

Low water pressure could be several things but here are some things to check. First of all start at the pressure tank where the water line comes into the basement. Look at the pressure gauge. For now we'll assume it works. The pressure will rise and fall (with cold water running in the tub) the pressure should be between 25 - 60lbs. If the pressure rises and falls quickly it is likely you may have low air pressure in the pressure tank. If the pressure switch or pump cuts in and out frequently you likely have a pressure tank issue. If all of the above seems fine you may have a small water orifice or small water supply line. If the pump runs continually you may have a weak pump. WWW.BORDERHI.COM/POSTS

On Mon. June 2nd future Marauders visited our school for the entire day. Grade 6 Orientation Day or as we like to call it ‘A Day in the Life of a Seventh Grader’ took place. Our current Grade 7 class had the day off (to study and clean their bedrooms of course) so the Gr. 6`s got the full experience. They asked many questions about lockers, especially decorating them. Mrs. Kaye, our Gr. 7 LA and Social teacher, reported there were no lost casualties as the group resembled

a ‘bunch of grapes’ moving through the halls. By the end of the day all the students seemed comfortable and excited for next year. This month the Senior High students took part in the annual canoe trip down the North Saskatchewan River from Elk Point to Heinsburg. Mr. Woodward said it was a great trip with interesting meal plans and lots of sunburns. A little bird mentioned Mr. Woodward ended up in the river at one point but he refused to disclose details of preceding events. Needless to say, everyone had a great trip, was well behaved and

really put their skills to the test. Our last assembly was held on Thur. June 6th. The Badminton teams and Track and Field teams proudly displayed their banners after phenomenal seasons. Pirate crew awards were also given out to the most active students in school events/activities. Congratulations to Rebecca Bates (Senior High) and Anastasia McCullough (Junior High)! And the pirate crew with the most participation from students was….Long John Silver with over 1000 points! All pirate crews showed great enthusiasm and participation through-

School News

Vermilion Elementary School Karen King Submitted Vermilion Provincial Park Provides Outdoor Classroom For VES Students On June 6, the Grade 2 students had a wonderful opportunity to learn about why Vermilion is unique by participating in a walking tour that led through the downtown area and through the part of town that housed the first hospital and RCMP barracks. They also spent the afternoon at the Vermilion Heritage Museum. The museum has a fantastic collection of items that kept the students engaged, learning about how Vermilion began, who settled here, and how it changed over time. A special thanks to the volunteers at the museum for making this day great. The Grade 5 students journeyed to Vermilion Provincial Park on the afternoon of June 6. They were met there by Vermilion Provincial Park legend Mr. Gary Walsh. He took them down to the Vermilion River Reservoir, and talked about the human impact on this wetland, as well as the benefits the wetland brings to our area. After this, the students spent time gathering plant and insect samples to examine. They got to see Mr. Walsh and Mr. Harvey free a cormorant from a fish-

ing line. The students were excited to see it fly by soon after. The trip was finished with a short walk through some of the trails. This trip will greatly help all the students complete their Final Wetland Project. Special thanks to Mr. Walsh and the parent volunteers who came down to the river. The Grade 6 students took their annual trip to Camp Encounter on June 9 and 10. 45 students and 16 adult supervisors experienced rock wall climbing, archery, and a team challenge course. Throw in an information scavenger hunt, a variety of indoor games, a massive game of capturethe-flag, a campfire complete with s’mores, and the traditional VES motorboat races, and you can easily understand why they keep going back. They dealt with weather that was less than ideal, but nobody cared about that. One of the adult supervisors got very close to nature by encountering the island’s resident moose. Now we all believe the counsellors when they say there is one. Thank you to the many parent supervisors and Dale, the super bus driver.  Congratulations to the Grade 6 class. VES has an excellent reputation at Camp Encounter, and this year’s group certainly maintained it. On June 11 and 13, the Grade 2 students visited the Paw Prints Pet Shop

The shop has a wonderful selection of pets such as guinea pigs, snakes, frogs, and hedgehogs. Ollie the parrot is always a hit with visitors as he calls out and dances. We had double the fun on June 12 as it was Twin Day at VES. Many students and staff partook in this day by wearing identical clothing or styling their hair the same way.

Vermilion’s Brandon Baddock Celebrates Win With Oil Kings

Vermilion’s Brandon Baddock was celebrating the past few weeks after the Oil Kings took the Memorial Cup in a 6-3 win over Portland’s Guelph Storm in the Canadian Hockey League. Baddock started off his hockey career by playing in the Vermilion Minor Hockey league having his dad, Brent, as a coach. He was drafted into the WHL at the age of 15. Baddock and his teammates were welcomed home from the London, Ontario game with a parade in their honour in Edmonton on June 4. He will spend the next few months training and will keep honing his skills by skating in Lloydminster before heading back to the Oil King’s benches on August 25. Pictured here is Baddock as he poses with the two trophies, the Ed Chynoweth cup for the WHL and the Memorial Cup for the CHL, following the May 25 win. Photo submitted.

Local News Local Family Competes On The World Judo Stage Karen Nedzielski Reporter

If you have ever thought about taking up a self defence sport, you may want to take a few pointers from the four Poliakiwski young ladies, from Vermilion. The sisters have a very good understanding of what it takes to protect yourself if the need ever presented itself. Twenty-two year old Jordan, 20 year old Alexandra, 17 year old Sydney and 15 year old Brett have been practising the sport of Judo since they were able to walk says mom Nicole, and all have done extremely well in the sport. The family got involved in Judo while the family lived in Lethbridge when the oldest of the sisters Jordan, was in Grade 1 and was attacked by a boy in Grade 6. It was at that point the family felt it was necessary to make sure the girls would be able to defend themselves if the situation was ever repeated. Judo is a sport of self defence where no punching or kicking takes place but rather a grappling sport where, if someone was to attack you, a series of manoeuvres are used incorporating your body weight to throw the opponent or attacker to the ground. At that point, a combination of choke holds and arm restraints are used to subdue the opposition. The sport has been an Olympic event since the 1960s and that has Jordan Poliakiwski training on a full time basis, in hopes of earning a spot on the 2016 Olympic team. Mom Nicole, said since Jordan was already doing the sport, it was obvious the other three girls were going to do the sport as well, whether they liked it or not. “Having four daughters in the society we live in now a days, we feel that it is important to have the skills to protect oneself as well give them determination and self control,” said Nicole. Not only a form of self defence for the family, the four daughters have experienced much success in the sport with all the girls excelling to compete at the national level and beyond. The two oldest daughters, Jordan and Alexandra have competed all over the world. Jordan has competed in Germany three times, taking fifth in Berlin, silver in France and third in Turkey. She has also competed in the South Pacific, throughout the United States and in Sweden where she suffered an injury while competing. Jordan has won three national championships and many National Bronzes. She has also qualified and fought in World Championships. Jordan has dedicated the last three years strictly training in the sport to qualify for the 2016 Olympics. Alexandra has also competed in Germany two times and France once, taking the gold medal. Alexandra has also won the National Championship title, as well many bronzes at that level. Last year younger sister Sydney also won the National Championships which qualified her for the Judo World Championships. She did not medal but mom Nicole said, she gave the German competitor an unbelievable fight and ended up taking seventh place out of 32 competitors. Sydney and Brett recently travelled to Germany to compete at the International Judo competition in Erfurt, Germany facing over 40 competitors in each of their categories. Although they did not earn a medal, they did win fights against Brazil and Germany, which Nicole says is amazing because the best of the best are in Europe. Both girls will soon be facing their challenges to earn a spot to fight on the National team with Canada. The girls were also given the opportu-

nity to participate in a three-day intensive training camp to help improve their fighting skills. The girls came back with many bumps and bruises from their battles but Nicole says it helps them become better in the sport as the Europeans tend to excel in the sport and the Canadians can learn a lot from the experience. While at the Germany competition, the countries participating selected fighters to compete on a team level and Syndey was one of those chosen for the team. Canada’s judo team took the bronze medal for the competition with Sydney’s win against Brazil. Germany claimed the silver medal and Brazil took the gold. Sydney has won many bronzes at the National level with this year’s competition held in Quebec. Because of her age, Sydney ended up competing in the U21 category, making her the youngest in the category sometimes competing against 20 year old competitors. Considering the age difference of the competitors, Sydney still managed to make it to the bronze medal match. Although she controlled the beginning of the match, Sydney fell short in the end and just fell short of the medal podium. The youngest of the girls, Brette has also won several bronze medals at the

Judo Athletes Of The Year

Although doing very well at the competition, Brette ended up losing a match which dropped her out of the gold medal fight and put her in the draw for the bronze which she won. Older sister Jordan, was injured so couldn’t compete at Nationals. She was there to help coach her sisters, on and off the mats. Alexandra retired from judo this past year as a serious competitor, now doing the sport just for fun and is focusing on her schooling. Nicole said it was a “sweet victory for the family” when all four girls competed in the 2013 Judo National Championships in Vancouver. Three of the girls made it to the bronze medal match and one made it

to the gold. The family came home with a fifth place, two bronze medals and one gold for their efforts. There is no doubt the Poliakiwski girls are at the top of the National Judo list of competitors winning many awards and also qualifying for the Canadian Winter Games. Provincially, Sydney and Brette Poliakiwski have both won the most outstanding female athletes for their categories for 2014. Neither could attend the banquet as Brette was training in New York and Sydney was in Europe on a school trip. Although the girls train out of Lloydminster and compete for the Saskatchewan team, they still continue to make the community of Vermilion very proud.

On Thursday, June 12, the grade fives stayed afterschool to cook supper for their parents (or an invited guest). They were all very

focused as they cut up vegetables and watermelon, made popcorn balls, juice, cooked pasta and hamburger. They also set up tables and chairs and made placemats for their guests. The guests arrived at 5:00 and were served a wonderful meal. Thanks to Crystal Jackson and Pat Calyniuk for organizing this program.

Raising Chicks At Mannville School Miss Nissen had her Grade 3/4 class wondering when she went in and asked the students “can anyone guess what my surprise is?” They had been studying the life cycle of a chicken, making chicken crafts, and drawing chicks. The room of Grade 3/4 students pondered for a minute and gave up guessing. “We are going to hatch chicks of our own!” So on May 28 Miss Nissen placed four different colored eggs into the incubator. There were blue, olive, brown with red speckles and just brown eggs. This week the chicks have started to develop feathers and harden their beaks. By Monday the chicks will look like chicks but will need to grow in size and weight because they will only weight 7.37 gm by this point. By next Friday the baby chicks will turn toward the air cell and pierce the membrane so it can breathe using the air cell. The babies should start hatching between June 17 and 19. After the chicks have hatched, the

students will act as their parents and provide all the necessities they will require until they are old enough to go to their new home with Mrs. Thompson. Stay tuned for more information on our baby chicks development. Mrs. Hinton’s Grade 1 class also welcomed some visitors to their classroom. Nine caterpillar arrived, already in their chrysalis stage. The students waited anxiously for the butterflies to emerge. They were busy recording any changes they saw in their Butterfly Journals. The Grade 1 and 2 classes will be visiting the Lloydminster Petting Zoo as part of their “Living Things” and “Creepy Crawly Things” units in science on Thursday, June 26. From there they are headed to Bud Miller Park for a picnic and a game of mini golf.

Customers Cash In On Co-Op Contest Coop Press Release

Thousands of western Canadians played Co-op’s Fuel Up to Win contest this year, but only one could win the $50,000 grand prize. Congratulations to Mary Holmen from Winnipeg, Manitoba, winner of the cash prize and one of 46 winners from Red River Co-op. Holmen will be retiring July 4 from being chaplain at the Selkirk Mental Health Centre. “We never win anything, and my first thought was it was a joke when I received the phone call,” said Holmen. “We plan to do some repairs around the house and cabin that we have been putting off with the winnings.” Fuel Up to Win was a fun and exciting promotion in its second year that thanked customers and members who regularly fuelled up at Co-op gas bars and shop at Co-op convenience or food stores, from Vancouver Island to northwestern Ontario. During the eight-week promotion, which began Feb. 28, customers received

a game ticket with a qualifying purchase with three opportunities to win: instant win, collect to win and online win. Because the two guaranteed prizes were not claimed in the collect to win game, a random draw from online entries selected the two grand prize winners. There were over $7 million in prizes and discounts available to be won this year, up from over $4.3 million in 2013. Erica Kraft from Calgary, Alberta, won the 2014 Ford Escape and was one of 90 winners from Calgary Co-op. There were 500 winners in the collect to win and online win portions of the contest. “I am so very grateful for Calgary Co-op, I have never won anything in my life and winning this vehicle has come at such a wonderful time for our family,” Kraft said. “I didn’t think I would win online however I entered this contest as Co-op is a trusted company in my eyes. Thank you again Calgary Co-op.” Altogether, there were 18 winners of free gas for a year, 10 winners of free groceries for a year, five winners of vacation getaways, 400 winners of $100 gift cards and 56 online daily winners of gift

Discover New Activities This Summer AHS Submitted

Alberta Outings And Adventures To Enjoy Trying new activities can help you co n n e c t w i th p e o p l e a n d n a tu re, discover new perspectives and improve your health. Here are five physical activities you can try this summer: 1. Climbing Learning to rock climb i s p hy s i c a l l y a n d m e n t a l l y c h a l l e n g i n g a n d h elps yo u rea ch n ew heights. Many recreation facilities across Alberta have indoor climbing centres that offer lessons for all skill levels. You can also take the adventure outside to the Rocky Mountains: trained mountain guides in Kananaskis Country, Waterton Lakes, Banff and Jasper national parks, Nordegg and other areas can help you (safely) learn the ropes. Get started with the Alpine Club of Canada (alpineclubofcanada.ca or 403-678-3200). 2. Swimming Cool off this summer by s w i m m i n g i n o n e of A l b e r t a’s lakes. Se e th e Atlas of Alb er ta L-

akes website (alberta-lakes. sunsite. ualberta.ca) for detailed information about lakes near you. You can also visit your community swimming pool— it’s a great place to meet new people. 3. E xp lo rin g Wa lkin g is a g reat way to d is cove r yo u r n ei g h b o u rhood, town or city and spend time outdoors. Visit a museum, attend a play or festival, stop at a sidewalk café for a cool drink. Find more to do across the province at travelalberta. com. Or exchange your city sneakers for back-country boots and hiking trails; see albertaparks.ca for places to explore. 4. Canoeing, rafting and kayaking Alberta may be landlocked, but we have all kinds of rivers and lakes that are perfect for canoeing, rafting and kayaking. You can choose from the Elk, Milk, Red Deer, South a n d N o r t h S a s k a tc h e w a n r i v e r s , Lakeland Provincial Park or Vermillion Lakes, among many others. Visit Paddle Alberta (paddlealberta.org) for routes and water safety tips. 5. Gardening The joy of gardening is getting your hands dirty, relieving

stress and connecting with nature. Gardening also helps children learn where food comes from and how it’s grown. Join a community garden or

a horticultural society or club such as the Red Deer & District Garden Club (reddeergardeclub.ca) to meet gardeners in your neighbourhood.

A Better Alberta Is Possible: The Peoples’ Social Forum Comes To Alberta Suzi Neurauter, the Peoples’ Social Forum Alberta Expansion Committee Submitted

There are days when I, as an undergraduate student in the massive world that is the U of A, feel so incapable of impact, devoid of any real power to facilitate change or have any voice at all. When one looks at the state Alberta is in, it can be disheartening. The provincial government consistently denies any responsibility when it comes to social issues like poverty, climate change, Indigenous and treaty rights, gender and family violence and a myriad of others. In a province that has been politically dominated by the same party for over for ty years, neo-liberalism is all I have ever known. Rugged individualism ideals have been shoved down my throat my entire life. Any form

of dissent is actively silenced by the and provide an open and safe space ongoing Alberta space where movegovernment.

The Lea Park Rodeo had their hands full trying to drain the mud in the arena left behind by the inch and a half of rain that fell Thursday before the rodeo. The first picture was taken at about 7 a.m. Friday morning before the rodeo. The second was taken at about 4 p.m. after crews worked tirelessly to get the arena floor in the best possible condition for the competitors. Rodeo committee member Rick Hozack said it was the most successful year yet and are happy with the weekend’s turnout. Photos submitted.

Louisiana Hayride Takes Vermilion Down Memory Lane Karen Nedzielski Reporter

For the mere price of $35, you could have purchased a seat in a time machine and travelled back to the era of soft, traditional country, old Rock-a-Billy music and wholesome family entertainment. The Louisiana Hayride Show made its way to Vermilion on June 12, to Lakeland College’s Alumni Theatre bringing with it some big name stars from the past proving that good music never dies. The show opened to the sounds of the original Louisiana Hayride radio, and later a television show, which ran from 1948 through to 1960, helping launch the careers of many big name artists including the first television appearance for Elvis Presley in 1955. The live band picked up the music being played through the old radio on the set, halfway through Johnny Cash’s “Get Rhythm”, receiving the first of many rounds of applause that night. Today’s Louisiana Hayride show creator and host Lori Risling, played narrator for the evening giving the audience insight into the history of the show as well as its performers. The famous songs of Hank Williams Sr. seemed to bring him back to life as performer Gil Risling, dressed in the shortlegged, light blue suit and cowboy hat to sing “Jambalaya” and “Hey Good Lookin’.” It would be keyboard player William Brookfield’s turn to take to the lead mic in his rendition of Ring of Fire. If you closed your eyes you would have thought it was

old John himself, singing along to the trumpets. Saskatchewan singer Marilyn Faye Parney, portrayed Patsy Cline singing her famous tunes “Walkin’ After Midnight” and “Crazy”. What old-time music show would be complete without a performance by the man in braids, Willie Nelson himself. Accompanied by the “IRS”, Willie (performed by Gil Risling) was asked to hand over his performance fees to the tax collector before exiting the stage. After a short break, three cowboy performers, played by Risling, Brookfield and Mike Melnichuk, sang the soft songs in front of the campfire, ending their performance by blending their voices in the song “Happy Trails”. Loretta Lynn, performed by Parney, made her way to the stage for a number of songs before the band really got rockin’ to The show ended with a performance the sounds of Jerry Lee Lewis and George from Roy Orbison, played by Risling, which Jones. had the crowd tapping their toes and clap-

ping along to the famous songs from the man in dark glasses. The audience was definitely treated to a trip down memory lane before the show’s close and the hayride moved on down the road.
