Larsen stated councillors had pondered

MORRIN COUNCIL

Morrin’s official administrator passes

2019 financial statement Dec. 16

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism

Initiative reporter

ECA Review

The provincial government’s

appointee to Village of Morrin

council approved the audited

2019 financial statements at the

regular meeting Dec. 16. The

meeting was held via teleconference

to meet pandemic

guidelines.

Harold Johnsrude was

appointed by former Minister of

Municipal Affairs Tracy Allard

as the village’s official administrator

(OA) to act as village

council until the next municipal

election scheduled for Oct. 2021.

Lake rules discussed after

off-highway vehicle complaint

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism

Initiative reporter

ECA Reporter

The Village of Alix will look

into formalizing rules for public

use of its namesake body of

water after councillors pondered

a complaint about

off-highway vehicle (OHV) use.

The decision was made at the

Jan. 6 regular meeting of

council, which was held via

Zoom to meet pandemic

guidelines.

Councillors read a report

from village Chief

Administrative Officer (CAO)

Michelle White regarding the

issue of OHVs and a public complaint

that vehicles could

damage the nature trail around

Alix Lake.

“In March, 2019 Ms. S. Fazer

wrote to council outlining concerns

for the sustainability of

Alix Lake and Nature Trail,”

Johnsrude noted the audited

financial statements had been

supplied to him by the village’s

official auditor Endeavour

Accounting and the statements

were dated July 29, 2020.

He noted the financial statements

were subsequently

presented to council in

September.

Johnsrude noted the auditor

stated the financial information

accurately represented the

financial situation of the village.

He moved and passed a

motion to approve the 2019

audited financial statements as

presented.

Johnsrude stated he was also

made aware of a letter to the

ALIX COUNCIL

stated White in her report. “Ms.

Fazer called the village office

on Oct. 16, 2020 to reiterate her

concerns, specifically as they

relate to the operation of offhighway

vehicles.

“Ms. Fazer stated that her

concerns are primarily to do

with the riparian area around

Alix Lake as well as with the

lake itself being harmed by

OHVs.”

Previously, councillors

instructed White to contact the

Alix Nature Trail Society

(ANTS) for feedback on the

issue.

White presented a written

response from ANTS’ Vice-

President Arlene Nelson-Dahl,

who stated, “Quads are not

encouraged on the nature trail

because of the destruction they

can cause if the rider is careless

or deliberately destructive. We

have found instances of both in

the past.

“At the ANTS meeting on

editor printed in a local newspaper

that went into

considerable detail as it listed

concerns with what the financial

statements contained and

how those results were arrived

at.

Johnsrude stated he was not

going to respond to the numbers

stated in the letter.

Johnsrude also stated, after

reviewing past council meeting

minutes, he was concerned that

there had been requests to see

past bank reconciliation information

and bank statements as

these statements don’t always

tell the whole financial story.

He also noted there had been

certain demands that the

Nov. 26, this subject was discussed.

The general consensus

was that there had been no

obvious damage done to the

trail in recent times by quads.

Those who walk the trail regularly

have stated that they have

not seen any machines on the

trail that should not be there.”

Both Coun. Barb Gilliat and

Vicki Soltermann stated a lake

management plan could

address the OHV concern, along

with others, such as docks jutting

into the lake in wintertime

and snowmobiles on the lake.

Coun. Tim Besuijen stated he

felt no motorized vehicles

should be on the hiking trail.

Coun. Soltermann made a

motion that village staff develop

a lake management plan to

address issues raised during

discussion. “No rush, but at

some point we need to do this,”

said Soltermann.

Councillors unanimously

passed the motion.

official village auditor work

independently, which

Johnsrude stated he felt was

unfair because the Village

of Morrin only has two staff.

Johnsrude stated the 2019

audited and approved financial

statement would be

posted publicly on the village

website, which is

currently a work in

progress.

As pandemic measures

continue and in-person

meetings aren’t possible, he

noted that he’d like to see

regular council meetings

conducted visually rather

than teleconference.

Chief Administrative

Officer (CAO) Annette

Plachner stated the village

website is being updated by

a local expert who has

agreed to help the village.

She said she’s hoping to

set up Zoom video meetings,

hopefully beginning in Jan.

2021.

Regular financial reports

Johnsrude read an agenda

item called “Financial

report as of Nov. 30, 2020,”

and stated it’s reasonable to

expect such reports should

be provided regularly to

council throughout the year.

The OA noted this report

was the first financial

update provided to Morrin

village council in 2020.

The OA also made a note

to mention that in a previous

council meeting a mistake

had been made by council

when they proposed a consultant

prepare the 2020

budget excluding CAO

Plachner from the process.

Johnsrude pointed out the

CAO must implement the

budget, and asking a CAO to

be responsible for a budget

she was left out of wasn’t

proper.

Inspection needed?

Johnsrude stated during

his regular report that when

he was appointed, a letter

from Minister Allard stated

a preliminary review would

be conducted into the

Village of Morrin’s

operations.

This means someone from

Municipal Affairs in

Edmonton would conduct

some local information gathering

and determine if an

official inspection is

required.

He further noted that all

Morrin residents should

have gotten a copy of this

letter and added that he can

be contacted through CAO

Plachner.

Council disagrees on some expense claim rules

Stu Salkeld

Local Journalism Initiative reporter

ECA Review

Big Valley council didn’t agree on

how some expense claims should be

handled, but their revised procedural

bylaw passed second and third readings

by 2 - 1 votes.

The votes were held during the Dec.

30 regular meeting of council held via

Zoom to meet pandemic rules.

Village Chief Administrative Officer

(CAO) Sandra Schell presented councillors

with the procedural bylaw,

which essentially lays out how councillors

will conduct their business.

Mayor Clark German noted the

bylaw already passed first reading.

Coun. Harry Nibourg stated he felt

councillor expense forms, which they

submit for out-of-pocket expenses

related to council business, should be

handled differently than what was in

the proposed bylaw.

He noted the forms remained the

same as in the past and should be

changed to avoid honest mistakes or

someone intentionally trying to

defraud the village.

At a previous council meeting, village

staff reported that Coun.

Nibourg had been paid twice for certain

committee meetings he attended,

YOUNGSTOWN COUNCIL

Youngstown council

moves forward with

technology purchases

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

Youngstown council held

a special meeting on Wed.

Dec. 23 to tidy up any last

minute items needing to be

addressed before the new

year arrived.

One item on the go was

the suggestion of buying a

locally supplied tablet and

laptop for administration

and public works to use for

village business.

With the new wave of

video conferencing usage for

meetings, administration

has found their outdated

computer to not have a video

camera so personal laptops

have been used at home

instead.

Under the Municipal

Operation Support Transfer

(MOST) grant offered by the

provincial government,

Youngstown has chosen to

move ahead on purchasing a

laptop from Bowerstone PC

for $1,200 and a tablet from

Reality Bytes for $2,409,

both from Hanna.

Warranty has been added

as well at $335 for tablet and

$275 for three years for the

laptop.

Fire department budget

created

Youngstown council

agreed at their meeting on

Mon. Jan. 4 to allocate $5,000

towards the local fire

department for gear, supplies

and training.

Councillors felt this was

necessary for the department

to work efficiently.

Special Areas and the village

also have an agreement

that each pays 50 per cent of

the costs.

“We don’t want to limit it

[the amount] in case they

want to do extra training,”

said Coun. Ken Johnson.

Confidentiality

Agreement

SWITCH Power, a Calgary

based energy company has

begun looking at

Youngstown for a potential

solar project on villageowned

property.

With the hopes to find the

best bang for their buck,

council passed a motion to

enter into a confidentiality

agreement to allow SWITCH

Power to research different

statistics and complete evaluations

of renewable energy

to ensure the project is sustainable

in this region.

Councillors reiterated

that entering into this agreement

does not tie them to

anything other than

allowing the company to do

research at this time.

Outdoor rink

in the works

Council discussed the possibility

of installing an

outdoor rink near the

Community Hall or by the

Curling Rink.

Coun. Johnson asked if

Public Works Foreman

James Mabley had investigated

the outdoor rink kits

that can be installed to

make for an easy set up and

take down while still giving

the community an outdoor

activity they can utilize.

Council directed Mabley

to do some research, ask

some people who have set

one up before and check out

a few options and bring

them back for further talks.

COVID bonuses

The Chief Administrative

Officer (CAO) Emma

Garlock and Public Works

Foreman Mabley were given

a bonus from the village for

their hard work during the

pandemic as compensation

for the extra time put in and

rearranging of normal

operations.

Motions passed

The Emergency

Management bylaw and

Regional Emergency

were passed.

As well, a

motion was made

and passed to

sign a Fire

Lastly, a

It turned out the committee he’d

been attending directly paid members

for their time, while the village also

paid Nibourg and while reporting on

this Schell stated she wasn’t aware

Nibourg had been getting paid directly

from the committee.

Nibourg stated at that time he wasn’t

aware of it either, and that it was a mistake.

He pledged to repay any money to

which he wasn’t entitled.

Nibourg suggested adding a statement

to the effect that any councillor

meeting attendance will be emailed to

the village CAO as confirmation,

which could then be easily reviewed by

the village staff.

Schell noted that in the past village

staff have requested that all meeting

minutes be forwarded to them, but that

was never done.

Both Mayor German and Coun. Art

existing sheet looked.

German went further by saying he

Nibourg stated that not all elected

Nibourg stated again he felt more

Nibourg.

worsen ever since.

Over the past 24 years, through the

hard work and generosity of the community,

the slide has been repaired

annually to enable ski hill operations.

This summer, after many years of

planning, work commenced on a permanent

stabilization of the slope.

Tiger trout are being added as a licensed species in 2021 for stocking

of lakes and private ponds in Alberta. ECA Review/Submitted

Tiger trout available

for the first time

Submitted

Tiger trout are being

added as a licensed species

of trout in 2021 for the

Alberta aquaculture

industry and private pond

owners throughout rural

Alberta, including farmers,

ranchers and recreational

property owners.

The licensing change

from Alberta Environment

and Parks (AEP) is the culmination

of years of

cautious study, conversations

between government

and industry, and planning

for the further introduction

of the species.

Tiger trout are a hybrid of

brown and brook trout. The

species is desirable to

anglers and sport fishers

because of its unique

“fighting” style.

Tiger trout in Alberta

cannot reproduce. This

enhances the fish’ capacity

to grow to a large size after

several years in water

bodies with abundant food.

These factors combine to

lure anglers to any Alberta

lake where they are stocked.

“For anglers and private

pond owners who are

serious about the experience

of catching fish, tiger trout

have been a wish list species

for several years in Alberta.

The move to expand

licensing for tiger trout into

the aquaculture industry

follows almost eight years of

careful, science-based introduction

of the species into

Alberta water bodies.

There will be up to 30 provincially

stocked lakes with

tiger trout in 2021.

Tyranny’, by Timothy Snyder, professor

of history at Yale University if

you care about truth. It gives 20 lessons

using Hitler, Putin and other strong

men as examples. It’s pocket-book sized

and readable in one sitting. Written in

2017, it clearly foreshadowed Trump

and his gang of anarchist thugs.

History reminds us that Trump

could not overthrow a democracy on

his own. It takes the direct or complicit

help of corporate elites, educated lawyers

and financiers, republican

political leaders and elected officials,

rouge soldiers and police officers,

social media companies, propaganda

media outlets and the masses who buy

into the big lie.

Republican lawmakers are today

working hard to ensure it will be those

on the ground in the Capitol building

who will pay the price. As the propagandized

freedom fighters go to jail,

the instigators, the elites, get a wrist

slap or receive presidential pardons.

Snyder’s point number 10 is ‘Believe

in Truth’. May it be a wakeup call for

every right-wing political leader,

including Premier Jason Kenney, who

routinely uses the republican tactic of

driving wedges between people and

regions through lies, half-truths and

fake news to foment rage and anger.

We, the masses, need to ponder

Professor Synder’s words before we

unintentionally slip down the rabbit

hole and fall under the spell of propagandists

and cult leaders.

He wrote, “To abandon facts is to

abandon freedom. If nothing is true,

then no one can criticize power,

because there is no basis upon which

to do so. If nothing is true, then all is

spectacle. The biggest wallet pays for

the most blinding lights.”

In politics, lies matter. I went back to

Kenney’s New Year’s Day news conference.

In every situation where Kenney

speaks, no matter what topic, he takes

potshots at Prime Minister Trudeau

and Opposition Leader Rachel Notley.

That day, when he and his team were

100 per cent wrong to travel internationally

and he was arguing it wasn’t

that bad, he took time to slam Prime

Minister Trudeau—something about

not enough rapid testing at airports—

and called the ND opposition—you

know the ones who had no caucus

members travelling during the holiday

season—liars for pointing out Allard’s

ministerial responsibility for vaccine

distribution.

Kenney boldly stated, “Allard is not

directly involved or responsible for the

vaccine program.”

That was a lie. The Minister of

Municipal Affairs—then Tracy

Allard—was responsible for emergency

management and her deputy

minister is in charge of the rollout of

Covid-19 vaccine.

Kenney made himself responsible

for the personal travel decisions of his

MLAs, yet says Allard isn’t responsible

for her department’s work! Come on,

how stupid do you think we are?

Why should these constant barbs

and lies concern us?

Just mentioning Trudeau or Notley

in conservative circles today exposes a

scary level of vitriol hatred, that’s why!

January 6 events happened after

years of cultivating a bogus ‘enemy of

the people’.

An ardent conservative, Dave

Rutherford, said recently, “Kenney has

lost his moral compass.”

Unfortunately, Kenney’s one-man

road show, slimy truthfulness, divisive

politics and unaccountable leadership

is a growing problem for peace and

unity in Alberta.

Where was the leadership?

by Herman Schwenk

We are in a period of time when

strong political leadership is a

necessity.

What we see now is weak leadership

at both the federal and provincial level.

It has really showed up here in

Alberta right after the new year. The

government set rules for everyone to

follow to try and decrease the amount

of COVID-19 infection.

Our elected representatives have a

responsibility to set a high standard

example for everyone else to follow in

making sure that the rules are

followed.

What do we have happening? At

least nine MLA’s and senior government

officials from Alberta left the

country for a winter holiday when we,

the people were told to not leave the

country, stay home, avoid groups of

people, etc.

Hope we never

drive into the ditch

Dear Editor,

Maybe I got out of the wrong side of

bed today but I would like to respond to

a columnist a few weeks ago about how

Biden and Trudeau and the United

Nations and everyone else who is not a

capitalist will bring ruin to the world.

May I bore you with some experiences

while living and working in

Finland for 30 years?

My son is a diabetic and goes into a

diabetic nurse’s office and comes out

with three-month’s supply of blood

strips, syringes and other necessities

without touching his wallet. Walk into

a pharmacy here and look what they

cost.

My grandchildren will have hot

lunches cooked at the schools every

school day and also will have doctor

and dentist checkups every school

year.

Then there are the maternity

checkups, unemployment benefits and

on and on; yet we have as many personal

freedoms as you have here.

I paid about 27 per cent taxes for all

of these services, a far cry from what I

am getting from my taxes here.

Keep in mind that Finland has to

import every drop of oil and is not as

rich as Alberta. For this cradle to

grave security, Finland could be called

a welfare state and apparently to at

least one columnist, welfare is classified

as being socialist.

To use the same kind of measuring

stick, I can brand capitalists of being

concerned with being only me, me, me

instead of we, we, we. I am not against

free speech but I do wish that, when we

give an opinion or send a social media

text, etc., that we realize that what we

send out is a reflection of our

personality.

Back to Finland–the government is

usually a coalition of different parties

which fight amongst themselves but

still manage to build on the foundations

of governments before.

They compromise, a word that is

sadly becoming extinct here.

I do wish we return to driving on the

center of the road, sometimes swerving

to the right, sometimes to the left but

never driving into the ditch on either

side.

Dear Joyce,

Just sending our blessing and thank

you for your valuable newspaper.

I must share, I did notice the papers

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB January 14'21 7

FORESTBURG COUNCIL

Community facilities, groups receiving

majority of COVID-19 grant

Terri Huxley

ECA Review

Chief Administrative Officer

(CAO) Dwight Dibben brought

forward some information

about the Municipal Operating

Support Transfer (MOST) grant

provided by the provincial government

to offset the lack of

income raised due to COVID-19.

The Village of Forestburg

received $93,602 to put towards

whatever they feel is needed

during this time.

CAO Dibben shared at the

regular meeting on Wed. Jan. 6

that a few village-owned facilities

like the arena and pool had

been spoken to about using

these funds to help with their

operations.

The senior administrator

asked council if they would like

to continue following this path

as administration didn’t want to

get too far ahead of themselves

without council’s consent.

Council directed administration

to create a list of all

community groups, societies,

nonprofits and facilities

including the broader prospect

of Valley Ski Hill.

CAO Dibben shared that the

funds they received will cover

everyone they have identified so

far with a little change to spare

for village office expenses on

top.

This list will be presented at

the next council meeting with

accompanying amounts for

each group.

Meeting dates switched

With the new CAO officially

in place, council chose to move

their meetings back to

Thursday nights.

Council meetings are held

every first and third Thursday

of the month beginning at 7 p.m.

Locations may vary due to

the virus and restrictions put in

place but are mostly at the village

office or across the street at

the Professional Building.

The reason meetings were

moved to Wednesdays for a time

was to help the interim CAO out

with scheduling.

Councillors also agreed

Thursdays were the better

choice within each of their own

schedules as some had other

meetings on Wednesdays or

personal/work matters to

attend to.

Community update

pamphlet

Council reviewed the annual

community update for a second

time.

Only a few tiny corrections

were made including the

removal of the COVID-19 section

and adding an updated

image of the community hall

with its recent renovations completed

in 2020.

Administration will bring the

update back with the corrections

made before council will

approve it for distribution.

Natural Gas strategy

Mayor Blaise Young spoke to

the natural gas vision and

strategy topic he brought forward

as a last minute agenda

item.

The village owns a natural

gas pipeline known as the

Highway 36 pipeline.

This particular line now has

two companies (Phoenix Gas

and ATCO Gas) interested in

purchasing the line and

restoring it.

Mayor Young asked council if

the companies could come to

council to present and see

where each other stands on the

subject.

He suggested they talk to the

economic development committee

about a strategy

component to ensure the village

is ready to handle a possible

transaction and hand-off for

this infrastructure.

Mayor Young also found a

‘quiet’ announcement from the

provincial government made in

September about evaluating

and revitalizing old lines such

as the one the village owns.

A section within the

announcement stated that the

government would assess current

ageing infrastructure to

determine its condition so

Mayor Young thought that there

could be money for communities

identified including rural,

indigenous and remote areas

which they fall under.

“If there is a program maybe

that covers money to upgrade

and inspect [the line] we should

look for that money which

would help us considerably,”

said Young.

No followup communications

have been dispersed since then

but the mayor was keen to see if

the program was still functioning

so they could access the

funds for their pipeline.

Shutting the barn door

Cont’d from Pg 6

Not only that, we weren’t

even supposed to have family

members in for Christmas

unless they were part of the

everyday household.

It appears that we have a premier

and a government that

feel their elected position gives

them entitlement to ignore the

rules that the rest of us are

expected to follow.

Initially Jason Kenney even

felt that it was not necessary to

reprimand any of those people

for ignoring these rules.

He did state after the public

became aware of what happened,

that they were to return

immediately and no one else

was to leave the country unless

it was urgent government

business.

That action is akin to the old

cliché about shutting the barn

door after the horse got out.

After intense public pressure

he had his Municipal Affairs

Minister who was in Hawaii

resign her cabinet position, and

the five other MLA’s were

relieved of their committee

positions, his chief of staff also

resigned.

So why didn’t he do it when

he first became aware of them

being out of the country? I find

that this Premier seems to have

trouble making hard decisions.

I think this started as soon as

he became the leader of the

UCP.

The party went off the rails

already at the founding convention

in Red Deer.

When the first board was

elected at that convention the

old operatives of the previous

PC party were successful in

having themselves elected to

the key positions in the party.

From then on, especially

when getting nominations for

the upcoming election, they did

everything they could to

diminish the influence of the

previous Wildrose Party.

When we were setting up

constituency associations after

the members of both parties

voted in favour of amalgamating

the two parties into a

united conservative party, it

was a requirement that half of

the board members for each

constituency be from each of

the previous parties.

Since it was now a united

party, Kenney as leader should

have made sure there was

equal representation from each

of the founding parties.

Getting back to Kenney’s

lack of leadership, when he

became premier after the last

election, he stated that he was

going to implement the old firewall

principles due to the lack

of respect that Alberta was getting

from the federal

government.

Alberta was contributing

most of the money for the

equalization payments while at

the same time the Prime

Minister seemed to be doing

everything he could to curtail

Alberta’s oil production which

was the source of much of

Alberta’s revenue.

So far, all Kenney has done is

appoint a committee to study

the issue instead of actually

doing something.

I don’t think he is serious

about implementing the firewall

principles. Either he has a

hidden agenda, or he is afraid

of the federal government.

He seems to be working for

himself instead of Alberta.

Since it looks like Kenney

and the UCP are going to

govern like the old PC Party we

may have to look at another

grassroots option similar to

what we did when the Wildrose

party was formed.

That may be my topic for the

next column.

Policy manual review

CAO Dibben and other

administration ‘took a deep

dive’ into the policy manual

for the village, finding a

number of policies out of

date when compared to

their review schedules.

The cemetery policy in

Town of Coronation

On behalf of the Residents of the Town of Coronation and the

Coronation Fire Department members, we would all like to take

the opportunity to thank Keith Rindal for his dedication and

leadership as the Town of Coronation Fire Chief. For the last

eleven years, Keith Rindal served as a dedicated public servant

to the Fire Chief ’s role, which has been nothing short of aweinspiring

and wondrous. As the Coronation Fire Chief, Keith

has been involved with over 400 Fire and Rescue operations over

the last eleven years and helped save many lives. Keith has also

had a meaningful impact and contributed to the evolution of

the department’s fire trucks, fire equipment, fire technology and

training programs.

We are all saddened, Keith has decided to step down from

the Fire Chief ’s position, but we are all excited for his future

endeavours. Keith has chosen to remain an active member of the

fire department and to work closely with the Interim Fire Chief.

Keith’s years of service, knowledge, and experience will continue

to be invaluable for all Coronation Fire Department members.

We implore Keith to chase his passion for travelling and scuba

diving and all it has to offer. We all can agree that Keith’s

happiness is well deserved and overdue.

Keith unquestionably earned a well-deserved Thank You for all

his years of service. The Town of Coronation cannot thank you

enough for all your sacrifices and the tireless nights you have

given. We cannot thank you enough for your compassion and

composure during all of the stressful situations you have been

challenged with, or encountered in your time. We thank you

for the involvement with our members and external members.

We thank you for your leadership and management of the

department during the hard times and the good. We thank

you for mentoring and teaching, and all you have provided our

current members. We know that with the excellent skills and

tools you have provided our department and our members,

they will be sure they can return home after each call safe

and unharmed. Thank you for being a mentor to our younger

generation of firefighters and advocating for fire safety within

our school and community. Thank you for representing our

community and region with class and a higher standard of

professionalism.

Words cannot place the community’s gratitude for your service

and sacrifice. Thank you,

“Rink of Dreams”

offered new

challenges to

old farm boys

Iowa may have its baseball “Field of

Dreams,” but it has nothing on

brother Tim. In Dec. 2014 he made his

own “Rink of Dreams” near his

Sherwood Park, Alberta, home.

I was headed to nearby Edmonton

on business, and on a hunch we’d

meet, I tossed my skates and a stick

into my vehicle.

In the evening, I called him. He told

me to head for his Lutheran Church

parking lot on the northeast corner of

Sherwood Park. Once there, he led

me down into a tree-lined ravine

where the Old Man Creek flowed.

Except now it was frozen. Perfect.

At the beginning it seemed like a

standard medium-sized rectangular

rink. However, as you move along

where the creek narrowed, Tim had

strung Christmas lights through the

trees, cleared and scraped a winding

ice route. After he had chopped off a

few branches, he created a crooked

400 ft long, 5 ft wide rink. Stickhandling

the puck was tough, a

breakaway would take forever, and

the serpentine loops wreaked havoc

with speed. Plus, you could get bodychecked

by a spruce.

Tim’s rink was unique and idyllic. It

tested our faded skills. We were

hockey crazy farm boys again. His

20-year old son Nathaniel joined in.

Tim mentioned that church members

used it minimally, and they

mostly sat around the fire pit he had

built there. Tim got the fire going and

we drank the hot chocolate he had

brought out.

Like Field of Dreams, all Tim

needed was the movie. Oh, and for

Wayne Gretzky to come out from the

trees and show us how it’s done.

Young brothers battle

hockey fever on farm pond

by Mark Kihn, Calgary

I don’t know why I responded. I don’t

know why I responded so

enthusiastically.

It was around mid-night and I felt a

shake on my shoulders while I was

buried deep in sleep and among my

blankets.

It was a December evening in 1975.

In the darkness and in my sleeping

stupor, I could barely discern the

figure of somebody slightly smaller

than I, but who looked similar –

younger brother Tim. “Get up. Let’s

go,” he ordered.

In recent weeks, us four brothers

had been playing hockey endlessly on

the farm pond. It was a fever we

couldn’t cure. And Tim, 12, and I, 15,

had caught it badly. It was worse than

the soon-to-arrive disco fever.

So I got up, jumped into the long

underwear and winter pants, buttoned

up a flannel shirt, found my parka,

grabbed my skates, and headed outside.

Tim beat me by two steps.

Our farm dogs, “Junior” and

“Pups,” stirred in the porch and came

outside. Our unusual nocturnal

timing caused them consternation.

They had options: 1) greet us with a

whimper and a walk-by rub: 2) bark

out a warning cry, or 3) sink their

chompers into our legs as fresh available

protein.

They chose #1 then retreated to

their still-warm old blankets. “Two

hockey nuts,” Junior would have muttered

if dogs could talk.

I remember that it was cold, but not

unbearable – which actually describes

Manitoba for most of the winter. The

pond was a ¼ kilometre from our yard

– just a good walk for the skating to

come.

Turn to Certifiably, Pg 9

Pond hockey continues throughout the decades as Oldman Creek near Glory Lutheran Church, Sherwood Park, Alta. is a busy place in 2021.

ECA REVIEW HANNA/CORONATION/STETTLER, AB January 14'21 9

Certifiably hockey crazy

Cont’d from Pg 8

We ducked into Dad’s shop garage

and plugged in a power cord. It was

our great innovation for the hockey

rink – lights. In fall, older brother

Dave had obtained a long power cable,

threaded it through tree branches, and

then rigged it from bank to bank on

our farm dugout. Youngest brother

Ron had helped.

Dave wired two light sockets to the

power cord, held it up by a rope strung

high across the rink, and magically,

we had night-time hockey capability.

Our rink bordered a country road.

Occasionally, we’d hear a horn honk

from passing neighbours. Or fans?

We had cleared the ice and played

earlier that day. With hurried fingers,

we got our skates on, grabbed our

stashed sticks, and began to skate

warm up circles. Another hockey session

began.

We took shots with a softer puck-size

rubber ball. It rolled along the lessthan-perfect

ice and it was quite

forgiving to the goalie.

I did fashion goalie pads once,

making a pad “sandwich” out of cardboard,

a burlap grain bag, and an old

army blanket cut in foot-wide strips. I

sewed them together with used skate

shoelaces, but alas, they did not work

well. When damp, they became heavy

and almost pulled my pants down.

Our rink was neither big nor fancy.

The cleared snow served as foot-high

edges. The area was about 30 f wide by

50 feet long. At the one end, which had

the most light, we had our chicken

wire goal net – carefully engineered to

National Hockey League standards.

We would not have to re-learn dimensions

once we made it to the big

leagues.

The script with Tim and I was

always the same – I played goal with

him as the shooter. Let me correct

that. I was Tony Esposito and he was

Guy Lafleur.

I did have a goalie stick and my wellworn

baseball mitt snagged Tim’s

shots. He regularly shot high to my

glove side because that’s what Mr.

Lafleur did. I caught some. The “save”

always felt good.

A few years later, I caught a

Blackhawks game in Chicago.

Afterwards, my Chicago college buddy

said we should go to the player’s

entrance. We had hardly walked over

when Mr. Esposito walked out. What!

I fumbled for my program, my

buddy grabbed a pen, and I blurted out

that I played on the farm ponds and

that I used his

name and his

style.

“You must be

Canadian,” he

said smiling, and

signed “Tony O.”

I was thrilled. I

carelessly lost his

autograph.

After a good

hour; occasionally

changing

roles, Tim and I

put the boots

back on and we

began the trudge

homewards. The

stars were bright,

the snow glistened,

world was silent.

The exercise had kept us warm –

and for many years, slim. Our hockey

fever had mildly subsided.

In the days the followed, the school

Christmas break arrived. Is there a

better time of year? We’d often have

the four brothers out on our humble

rink (hey, two teams of two) and we’d

play for hours. We’d zip to the house

for food, then go back and play more.

We couldn’t shake the fever. Incurable.

Tim now says we were certifiably

hockey crazy. The NHL matches

against the touring Soviet teams those

years made hockey even more

interesting.

A decade ago, I attended a banquet

in Calgary for the late Harley

Hotchkiss, then a Calgary Flames

owner.

Prior to the ceremony, I spotted

Gary Bettman, the NHL president. I

introduced myself and we chatted. I

told him of those pond hockey glory

days. He was cordial and asked if I was

a good goalie.

“Of course I was,” I answered

brashly. “However, the Buffalo Sabres

never phoned me.” They were my

favourite team.

“Well, with all due respect, the

Sabres did well with Tom Barasso,”

Mr. Bettman said. I couldn’t argue.

Most pro players mark their best

times and their career peak with a

Stanley Cup win. For Tim and I, our

best hockey times were played out on

the farm pond of long ago. And that

mid-night escapade may have been the

best of those.

Loved driving school bus

OMILUSIK, George

1937 – 2021

George ‘Joe’ Omilusik of Coronation,

Alta. passed away at the University of

Alberta Hospital, Edmonton, Alta. on

Sun. Jan. 3, 2021 at the age of 83 years.

Joe was born on April 8, 1937 to

James and Vera (Foyda) Omilusik, on

the family farm at Throne, Alta. Joe

was raised by his parents on the farm

at Throne, alongside nine other

siblings.

He went to the Throne

School but spent the majority

of his days helping on the

farm. His famliy grain farmed

as well as raised commercial

beef cows.

Joe also drove school bus for

35 years. He loved the kids on

his route and made sure they

made their destination no

matter the weather.

His love for God and his

Church shined on; making

sure to attend every Sunday Service

possible.

His hobbies included playing his

musical instruments, especially the

guitar, singing, listening to Abba on

the record player, farming, riding

horses, going camping, and watching

local rodeos.

In his retirement years, he still

helped on the

farm, sitting on

the tractor putting

up hay, and

spending most of

the day driving

around the

country.

Joe will be lovingly

remembered by

his two sons,

Timothy

from the report.

“As per your submitted request we

completed a water model for the service

connection at NW 14-29-23-W4M,

for (name removed),” stated the report

dated Nov. 18, 2020 and signed by an

unknown WSP employee.

“Based on a

the model indicates

the ability

to meet a flow of

4.0 Igpm at 130 psi

for the service

connection SW

The service can

be installed with

minimal effect on

Penner asked if

two residents

the application.

responded there

was only one

request to hook

water system.

McKiernan

noted in his

report that staff

recommended,

“That council

water

service connection

Grainger rural

requested by the

Village of Carbon

and as per Policy

14-17.”

Councillors

unanimously
