A short Remembrance Day Ceremony was held at the Cenotaph in the morning on November 11. Carried out by the Legion Members, the sociallydistanced ceremony was limited to 30 minutes at the Cenotaph with a

brief wreath-laying in representation of the Government of Canada, the Government of Alberta, The County of Vermilion River, The Town of Vermilion, and the Royal Canadian Legion. To ensure social distancing measures were met at the ceremony, those who bought wreaths from the Legion were

Tree Climber Candles

Elaina John Reporter

This year, local horticulturalist Jared Fehr decided to further embrace his hobby as a candle-maker. Fehr has been making Alberta-sourced beeswax candles out of unique pieces of wood for about 10 years. At first, it was a casual hobby, and he would make candles as gifts for family and friends. The idea came from a red elderberry tree Fehr once had to prune for a client. Fehr noticed that the tree had a unique knot. “I wanted to find a way to recreate that,” Fehr recalled. Fehr started casually selling candles last January at trade shows, conferences, and the like. He was looking forward to selling his candles at the Make-It Trade Show this spring, however due to COVID-19, the show was cancelled, leaving Fehr disappointed at the lost opportunity.

Despite this setback, it inspired Fehr to pursue candle-making more. He set up a website this fall and has had much success selling his creations since. To Fehr, Tree Climber Candles is not about simply making candles. Fehr hopes that through his candles, customers will develop a deeper appreciation and respect for nature. The pieces of wood Fehr moulds his candles out of often have a rich and unique history behind them. “The mission of this project is to bring people closer to nature,” Fehr explains. For sale on his website, Fehr has a candle called the Alzheimer’s candle, which was made out of a tree Fehr needed to remove for a client. The client seemed particularly upset about losing this tree. Fehr later learned that the client’s mother, who was dying of Alzheimer’s, liked to sit in the shade of the tree, and that the client associated the tree with her mother. After learning this, Fehr decided to make a candle out of a portion of the tree, and gave it to his client last Christmas. The client was very grateful for the candle and began crying. Her mother had passed away the month before, and the candle was a preservation of the memory of her mother. “That was when I found the deeper meaning behind these candles,” Fehr said. Fehr also has a Basking’s Ridge Candle set available for pre-order on his website. The Basking’s Ridge Candles are made out of pieces of wood from a 619 year old white oak tree, which was believed to be the oldest white oak tree in the world. The tree was situated in the centre of a Presbyterian cemetery in New Jersey, and was said to be a place George Washington met with various revolutionary war generals. Unfortunately, the tree had to be removed in 2017. “It was a devastating loss to the community,” Fehr commented. Later, Fehr contacted the arborist that removed the tree and purchased some pieces of the tree to make moulds out

T h i s i s a n e a sy way to jazz up plain rice. You can use it as a side dish with a ny M ex i c a n d i s h such as tortilla wraps, taco salad, chili, burritos and enchiladas. It can also be a side to such dishes as chicken, ribs, burgers and meat leaf. There are a few tricks that you can try for more success. The first one is to rinse the rice in water to remove the excess starch, so the rice is less sticky. The second one is to sauté the rice in an additional 1/3 cup olive or canola oil until lightly toasted and thoroughly heated. This trick can help to make the rice less sticky as well. It is not necessary, especially if you have a busy day, and are trying to get an amazing meal on the go as quickly as

possible. Leftovers of this rice store well in the refrigerator. You can also use leftovers inside burritos and tortilla in addition to the meat, beans, fresh tomatoes, onions, sour cream, cheese and other ingredients. You can even use some of this left-over rice in a Mexican inspired omelet. Additional optional add ins, when the rice is cooked include fresh chopped cilantro, and fresh squeezed lime juice. This recipe has a mild amount of heat, but if you like it spicier, you can turn up the heat with more chili pepper flakes. If you are using salted chicken broth instead of water, you will have to reduce and adjust the amount of salt.

Today, I am looking at the Paradise Valley CPR Station, which was built in 1929 and is a simple, small-scale building that featured wood siding and a cedar-shingled garble roof. The year that it was built, the CPR had completed its line between Marsden, Saskatchewan and Paradise Valley, Alberta. With the railroad arriving in the area, Paradise Valley soon boomed and at its height it boasted six grain elevators, along with several other businesses and dozens of residents. The small station features three small rooms. These rooms were the waiting room for passengers, an office and an

agent’s quarters. The station was built by the CPR to facilitate grain and supplies handling and to coordinate the mail and telegrams in the area. The station was built in the design of being a temporary building that provided basic railway services, rather than what was seen in larger communities that had big train stations of multiple rooms and more. For decades, the station was a busy place with settlers, travelers and visitors using it on a regular basis. The building would be used until the Canadian Pacific Railway ended all train service to Paradise Valley in the 1990s and the station was closed for good. This was a common thread for many stations that were closed and eventually demolished, sold off or left in disrepair. Thankfully, the Paradise Valley CPR Station did not fall into that situation and

Dear Editor We would like to share a letter of appre c iation to the Vermilion Fire Department. This past Friday, we were preparing out dinner and had neglected to turn on the exhaust fan for the stove. While mixing some recipe ingredients, the steam produced set off the smoke detector. Through a series of miscommunications with our home security provider, and unbeknownst to us, the false alarm was apparently not identified as such. While still on the phone with the security provider, we were surprised by the sudden appearance of the Vermilion Fire Department in our driveway! We live a short distance out of Vermilion, but were extremely impressed by the very quick response

The Clandonald Colony CR 1926-Piques National And International Interests

Elaina John Reporter

The Clandonald Colony brought three distinct cultures together, united primarily in faith, and a shared desire to raise their families in freedom on the land in western Canada. Clandonald’s history has received close academic scrutiny from historians and social scientists alike. “They’ve come from different parts of Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland and beyond to learn more about us—without most of us even knowing of their visits,” according to Clandonald farmer and history enthusiast, Tim Axe. An immigrant, Axe wanted to know more of his new homeland. This, combined with a request on the part of their Pastor to update the history of Clandonald, led Axe and his wife to Google a name on the cemetery gate, “The Scottish Immigrant Aid Society.” They found themselves online in the Chung Library within the University of B.C. browsing “an incredible amount of the Colony’s history, photos of families and farms, correspondence, land agreements, maps, etc.”

Axe noted that he had a similar online experience during a visit to the historical archives of the University of Aberdeen, Scotland. When asked why there is an international interest in the Clandonald Colony, Axe responded. “Their interest in the Colony is principally with the blending of three distinct western cultures (Scotland, Northern Ireland and England). To the delight of researchers, the Colony was created in a methodical, intentional manner and was well documented, including the founder’s critique a quarter of a century later. For most of us, the charm is simply within the story. If this is your preference, you will find yourself drawing from the story an appreciation for the integrity, work ethic and love within the families as keys for true happiness.” Before moving to Canada, Axe had studied about the Catholic Back to the Land Movement, which was a movement that began in Scotland around 1920. After learning more about Clandonald’s history, Axe realized he had immigrated to a Back to the Land Settlement. After sharing this with his wife, he was struck

by another realization—no one who grew up in the Colony was aware of this part of their story. His desire became to help his fellow community members know just how special this portion of their history is. Axe and a small contingent began making plans for capturing a historical profile of the Colony for the benefit of the local community, as well as for visitors requesting information. The members plan to restore a pioneer “StaveLock” home and build a replica o f t h e p i o n e e r ’s small barn. This is to become the “Clandonald Colony Cultural Centre.” “The goal is for all to see, learn and experience what it was like, both the benefits and challenges, for their family members who left their native lands and immigrated to the rolling hills of Alberta’s Lakeland Region.

The team is also preparing a booklet entitled: The Clandonald Colony & The Faith of Our Fathers, which will be available in the new year. If you would like to know more about or assist with the Clandonald Colony Cultural Centre project you can contact Axe at 780-581-3103.

Canada’s “Minister Of Everything” Don Mazankowski Passes Away

Jerianne Bardoel Reporter

On October 28, 2020 Don Mazankowski passed away at the age of 85. He was born in Viking, AB, and moved to Vegreville, AB in 1960 where he opened an automotive dealership with his brother before taking his career path in a different direction. Mazankowski’s passion for politics began after meeting Prime Minister John Diefenbaker during a speaking tour that travelled through Vegreville. He was a voice for Western Alberta farmers, believing that the West had a meaningful role to play and should not be left out. After five short years of living in Vegreville, Mazankowski was asked to consider running in the upcoming election by the local Member of Parliament, which he won. Mazankowski was first elected in 1968 in the riding of Vegreville, AB, and was re-elected seven times until his retirement in 1993, serving a total of 25 years. The first nine

years he served were spent as an opposition member, where he became known as a critic of transportation and policies that limited trade in the West. In 1979 he was Transport Minister in the short-lived Joe Clark government, and immediately started to work on redrafting the National Transportation Act and ease regulatory burdens on business. Mazankowski was also responsible for the Canadian Wheat Board at that time. The Farm Income Protection Act, the North American Free Trade Agreement, and the Western Diversification are also legacies of Mazankowski. He was sometimes referred to as “minister of everything”. Prior to retiring, Mazankowski established the Don Mazankowski Scholarship Foundation in 1985 to help Canadian youth post secondary education before attend post-secondary leavingthe thepublic publiceye. eye.

Mazankowski is survived by his wife Lorraine, their children and grandchildren. A private service is planned, with a public service when it is possible. Alberta premier Jason Kenney issued a statement Oct. 28 saying “At the heart of his public service was a belief that Western Canada needed strong voices to defend its economic and political interests in the Canadian federation,” the statement said. “Maz was such a voice for decades. For that and for all that he did, Albertans are Don Mazankowski. Photo Courtesy Government Don Mazankowski. Photo submitted deeply grateful.” of Alberta

TAKE ACTIONS FOR

MEN’S HEALTH A MOVEMBER ODE TO THE MOUSTACHE

While the moustache gave out its mightiest cry this millennia with the dawning of the worldwide Movember movement, its history reaches back much farther. The first known depiction is found in a portrait of an Iranian horseman from 300 BC. Since then, it’s been worn by some of the most famous politicians, philosophers, artists, scientists and dictators of all time. Men across the globe have sported moustaches over the centuries and historically, they were regarded as symbolic of power and prestige. Many styles of moustache are possible, and past trends have included both wispy whisker and shaggy bush-like varieties. Growing a moustache Much depends on individual genetics, but most men can grow a decent moustache in a few weeks. Participating in Movember requires that men commence the month clean-shaven. As facial hair grows in, the usual method of

shaving should be employed to all areas of the face except the upper lip. Scissors and a fine-toothed comb can be used to groom and shape the moustache. It’s best to avoid electric razors, as it’s easy to misstep with these devices. Whiskers should be regularly washed to keep them clean and moustache wax can be used to help achieve the desired shape. Fundraise Growing a moustache is good fun, but Movember is about more than just laughs. Fundraising for men’s health issues like prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s mental health is at the heart of the movement. Men can fundraise by creating their own personalized fundraising page on the Movember website. Through wordof-mouth and social media they can get sponsored by family, friends and co-workers to grow their moustaches for a good cause. This Movember, become a Mo Bro or sponsor one in your community.

Innisfree – Minburn 4H

Rylan Jackson Submitted

On November 10 we had our meeting in Minburn. Besides our normal agenda we also had Tawyna Copland a 4H parent, and a local vet of Prairie Rose Vet Services talk to the club about lead toxicity and the negative effects that it can have on cattle. It gave us good knowledge on one of the many reasons why it’s important to dispose of and recycle old batteries, espcially around our farms. A big thank you to Harder’s of Branded Western Wear for the use of their farm

facilities to do our weigh in for our projects on Sunday, November 8. We had good weather this year for the day. Our members have steer, heifer, and cow calf projects this year. Another thank you goes out to all the surrounding communities who helped us in one of the biggest tire and electronic recycling collections yet! Your contributions really helpd us out, and we appreciate that very much. We collected over 2,000 tires this year! Our next meeting will be on December 8, 2020 at 7 p.m. in Innisfree.

PET OF THE WEEK THE HARRY POTTER CREW We know that in the Movie, Bellatrix, Hagrid and Dumbledore weren’t the best of “friends,” but these siblings absolutely LOVE to play with each other and get into all sorts of trouble.

LEONARD JAREMCO April 18, 1951 - November 14, 2013 How sweet the memory still. But death has left a loneliness, The world can never fill. He bid no one a last farewell, He said goodbye to none. His hand we could only hold, Until his time was done. The heavenly gates were opened wide. A loving voice said “COME” “Forever in our hearts,” Anita Sons: Jeremy & Jeffrey

St. Jerome’s School News

Anna Svenungard Submitted

On Friday, November 6 at 10:45 a.m., St. Jerome’s held a virtual Remembrance Day ceremony to pay our respects and acknowledge our gratitude to those who have served our country and allowed us the freedoms that we have today. Our school was a sea of red, as Spartans wore the colour red and a poppy to commemorate this special occasion. The tone was a somber one, as our Mistress and Master of Ceremonies, Anna Willis and Clay Corbiere, led us through the ceremony. Mr. Lewin combined video clips of St. Jerome’s class presentations, prayers, and digital war footage to honour the veterans and soldiers. Ms. Svenun-

gard’s Grade 1 class, wearing masks, proudly led everyone in singing “Oh Canada.� Our principal, Mr. Allan Chase, led our opening prayer to remember those that sacrificed for our freedoms, who fought and died or who returned forever changed. We prayed and gave thanks to God for the bravery of all who answered the call, in many different ways, to serve God and neighbour in times of conflict. Spartans had the opportunity to watch a powerful Remembrance Day video, created by Jonathan Wagner, detailing Canadian Soldiers peace keeping efforts throughout history. The Grade 5 class was honoured to recite Canadian war doctor John McCrae’s famous poem “In Flanders Fields� and Mrs. Despins Grade 4 class sang “God save the Queen.� Class repre-

sentatives from Grades 12-Kindergarten came forward, following the ceremony, to place wreaths in a display of Remembrance on our stage. Overall, it was a very touching ceremony to honour our veterans and troops. Our student Faith in Action Team, along with Miss Kari, is organizing “Operation Christmas Child� through the Good Samaritan. Donations are due into classrooms by Wednesday, November 18. Up and Coming Important Events: Parent Teacher Interviews will be held virtually, for all students, on November 17 and 18. Picture re-takes will be held at 1 p.m. on November 18.

Cadrain Local Egg Business

Jerianne Bardoel Reporter

For the past three years, Gavin (13), Ava (11), and Karsen (8) Cadrain have been running a local business selling eggs. While their favourite part of the business is spending time with the hens, they also recognize that the business gives

them confidence, independence, and people skills. Running a business at a young age comes with a lot of responsibility for the young business owners; they collect eggs twice a day and then hand wash the eggs, date them, and properly store them until delivery day comes. They then contact their customers and set up a drop off appointment. On top of all that they feed and take care of 60 plus chickens daily!
