Email QC@leaderpost.com. Racing can be a real drag By Andrew Matte George Knight bought his beloved 1965 Plymouth Barracuda with plans to spruce it up and drive it on the streets of Regina. However, given his penchant for drag racing, things changed. The car has been modified more than once to perform whenever he and his wife are able to attend weekend races in Western Canada and the northern United States. The car is fast — its highest speed of 200 km/h was recorded in South Dakota a year ago. 1 9 6 5 P ly m o u T h B A R R A C u D A Q: Let’s start with the most important question first. Does this car belong to you or your wife Diane? A: It’s our car but she drives it. Q: When did you buy it? A: I bought this car in 1987. It was a tired old street car. It was driveable at the time, but barely. Q: Why did you buy it? A: My original intention was to swap a 340 into it and add an automatic transmission. I just wanted to fix it up and drive it on the street. But things got a little carried away and over time, the more potential it had to become a race-only car. So in 1987 we started out to build a fast street car but it turned out to be a race car. It was completed in May of 1988, which was the first year we ran it. Q: How has the car changed since 1987? A: Over the years, until about 1991, we added parts. We gave it a bigger compression and we added a bigger camshaft. In 1991, we got carried away with it. At the time, it had a stock chassis and I decided I wanted to go faster. So the car had what we call its back half done. The original frame was removed. The car was narrowed and the original wheel tubs were changed, which allowed us to put on a bigger tire. We also switched over the suspension, which had the leaf spring configuration. Diane Knight and her husband George stand in beside the 1965 Barracuda dragster. Diane is the quarter mile racer in the family. QC Photo by tRoy FLEECE We added a ladder bar with a coil over shocks. It needed a new motor. The suspension was getting tired. Q: Is anything about the car the same? A: The front suspension stayed primarily stock. We did everything we could do to the motor to speed it up. Q: Did you drive the car all this time? A: I raced it until 1995 in that configuration. And in 1995 I quit driving. But in the meantime, my wife was driving another 1965 Barracuda that we had. In 1994 she had won a championship in her car. I asked her if she wanted to drive my car. She was quite capable of driving a faster car. And she had proved it. So we ran it until 2004. The car was getting tired. Q: What happened in 2004? A: We parked it in 2004 with the intention of rebuilding it over the winter. Somehow that stretched out until 2010. When I was 60 I told Diane that I was giving myself a birthday present of a Super Street Baracuda. And I asked her if she willing to go back to driving. And she said yes. Q: Does the mean you upgraded your car again? A: We rebuilt the car. It now has a 415 cubic inch Chrysler small block and a new 904 transmission. And it has new technology. The car was built in 1991 and over the years the technology changed so we basically installed a new motor and a new transmission. We updated a lot of the suspension components as well. We had been running a 13-inch-wide tire and we went to a 14-inch wide tire just for a little more traction Q: When did Diane return to racing? A: In 2011 we returned to the track and ran it throughout 2011. We had a lot of old-car, new-car bugs. We replaced all the little things that came up. But the car ran fairly well, and by the end of the year we had most of the bugs out of the car and it was performing well. Q: What happened this year? A: In 2012 we went to 16 different races. We stayed fairly local. We raced the majority of our races in Saskatoon. We were in Yorkton once. We were in Estevan, Edmonton twice and we went twice to Medicine Hat. We were effectively racing for 16 weekends. We have all the bugs out of car and it’s running well. Q: This sure sounds like an expensive hobby. A Once you get the original investment made, it’s not that expensive. If you build the car well in the first place, the maintenance is relatively inexpensive in comparison to what you pay for a new car. But with travel and hotel expenses, things do add up. l e a d e r p O sT.cO m /q c T h u rs day, O cTO b e r 1 8, 2 0 1 2 3 INDEX # on the cover Pg. 11 # M Y fav o U r I t e P l a c e P g . 7 Remco Memorials Ltd. manufactures tombstones at its Regina location. qc phOTO by bryaN schlOsser # ta b l e o f c o n t e n t s GardenInG — 17 Take a trip to Turkey MuSIC — 20 Gunner & Smith get it together Meet My pet — 21 Newfoundlanders are a big breed SpaCeS — 22 Antique lovers in Saskatoon on the SCene — 24 CroSSWord and Sudoku — 26 parent to parent — 27 How do you teach your children about bullying? eventS — 29 horoSCope — 31 outSIde the lIneS — 32 WIne World — 33 Generation Seven a great find from the Niagara region Sharp eatS — 35 Pairing great food with a beautiful view What MoveS you — 2 Drag racing a 1965 Plymouth Barracuda In the CIty — 7 Douglas Park Hill is the perfect spot for a workout CIty FaCeS — 8 Ross McCreery pushes past pain to become a professional photographer Inventory — 10 read My book — 16 Personal trainer Trevor Folgering’s favourite place is Douglas Park Hill. qc phOTO by dON healy QC is published by the Leader-Post – a division of Postmedia Network Inc. – at 1964 Park St., Regina, Sask., S4N 3G4.

Email us at QC@leaderpost.com Mindy Derkatch: By Ashley Martin Between teaching fulltime at Dr. A.E. Perry School, raising two boys, doing Ukrainian dancing and playing Frisbee, Mindy Derkatch keeps busy and her wardrobe must accommodate her. “I need professional clothes, I need aroundthe-house clothes, I need workout clothes, I need casual clothes, and then I need clothes for all the seasons,” she says. Luckily, Derkatch has a predisposed love of clothes. “In my baby book, one of the first things I said was ‘go shopping.’ I come by it really honestly. My grandmother was always dressed to the nines with matching gloves and purse and hat and shoes. My mom is very well-dressed also.” Derkatch doesn’t discriminate — she’ll shop anywhere because “you never know where you’ll find that interesting piece.” She loves shoes because “it doesn’t matter if you gain weight or lose weight, your shoes will fit you.” 1.

SHOES: Madame Yes S A S K AT C H E WA N FA S H I O N Widespread wardrobe Colleen Florizone : By Jeanette Stewart Colleen Florizone works at a financial company in Saskatoon by day, but in her spare time she’s a committed fashionista. Her interest in putting together outfits was sparked when she started a Pinterest account online. She started keeping track of her favourite outfits on the Internet and soon became interested in sharing her style ideas with the world. This summer she decided to redecorate her condo, turning one entire room into a closet. Some of her favourite places to shop in the city are Giant Tiger and the Midtown Mall. She also buys many of her shoes online. “I find it harder to shop here just because I see a lot of stuff on the Internet ... and we just don’t have those stores here,” she said. Florizone is planning to start a fashion blog to share her style with the world, but in the meantime she was happy to share one of her favourite outfits with QC. 4.

Email QC@leaderpost.com # Douglas Park Hill is tops with personal trainer By Andrew Matte When Regina’s Trevor Folgering thinks about his favourite place, he means business. The busy personal trainer is a regular visitor to Douglas Park Hill for his own enjoyment and for work. Taking clients to the hill, which is located at Assiniboine Avenue East and McDonald Street in Douglas Park, is a part of most workouts. Folgering likes the hill because the gradual slope offers people with varying degrees physical ability a chance to walk or sprint up and down the hill. For those looking for a unique destination for a walk, the top of the hill offers a unique view of Regina’s skyline. M Y FAV O U R I T E P L A C E Q: Why do you like the Douglas Park Hill so much? A: I love the view. The view from the top is awesome. I love the view of the skyline of Regina. Q: How do you use it for your own workouts? A: When I am doing my squats, I am always facing the Regina skyline. That is part of my motivation. I tell myself, ‘This is such an amazing view.’ So then I go back down and then I climb back up and say ‘this is just a great view’ to myself again.’ Q: Getting to the top of the hill sounds like a little reward, right? A: Absolutely. It’s a good motivator for me. Q: What else does the hill do for you? A: I am a stairclimber by heart, so I love stairs. The big hill is actually really good because it doesn’t have a crazy incline like a staircase would. The Douglas Park Hill, which is the hill with the road, is actually a sloping hill, which means it can be used by everybody. It’s not going to be too challenging. Q: What sort of workout do you use the hill for? Personal trainer Trevor Folgering likes the physical challenge of running to the top of Douglas Park Hill. He also likes the view. qc photo by Don healy A: Sometimes we start out with a light callisthenic jog up the hill. I sometimes do squats and lunges while we go up the hill. For instance, we might start with walking up the hill for two minutes and then squatting for 15 squats and then walking for another two minutes and then squatting for 15 squats and walking for two minutes until you get to the top. And then it’s a nice easy walk down. Q: Is it easy to run up the hill? A: I never start anyone running up the hill. You don’t want to go gungho at the start. People will run for 10 or 15 minutes up and down the hill and the next morning they can’t get out of bed. That is not what we want. We want something nice and easy to start. So the hill offers something that’s gradual. We’re not going up the hill fast right at the start. Q: Is it hard on the knees? A: Stairclimbing is for everybody; same with walking. It’s a natural movement and everyone is accustomed to it. So even if you’re at a very low fitness level, that hill should help provide you with a good workout. You just need to take it really slow. Q: Do you go by yourself a lot? A: I am training for the CN Tower Climb on Oct. 20. So I use the hill and stairclimbing as part of my training. When I am at the hill, I do something that’s called a megatron workout. Basically, it’s 1,000 squats. I run up the hill doing 50 squats and then I run back down. I do that until I get to 1,000. It’s pretty intense but it works really well. 8 t h u rs Day, o C to b e r 1 8, 2 0 1 2 l e a D e r P o st.Co m /Q C CITY FACES # Disability prompts photographer into business By Andrew Matte Ross McCreery never pictured himself with a disability. But thanks to a passion for photography and encouragement from friends and family, the Regina man has found a way to be productive and happy even though a disease forced him onto long-term disability benefits. “I had a great job but that all got turned upside down,” McCreery, 42, said. “But I am the type of person who doesn’t want to be sitting on the couch all day long.” His ordeal began about six years ago when he was diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome, which in McCreery’s case, means terrible pain in his left hand, as well in his left foot and ankle. The syndrome, which affects a person’s central nervous system, often makes it impossible for McCreery to use his hand or walk on his foot. The diagnosis forced him to quit his job as assistant manager at Home Depot because of the unbearable pain and other symptoms that include anxiety and insomnia, he said. “I have good days but I also have terrible days. Sometimes, I am laid out in bed or on the couch for a couple of days, sometimes crawled up in the fetal position,” he said. “In my case, my nervous system gets all wound up and I often can’t relax … I usually live on very little sleep.” Over the years, he’s been able to learn to put his challenges into perspective. Physiotherapy has helped, and implants were recently placed in his back and abdomen which send electrical signals to his nervous system to ease the pain. “Since having the implants, I have a 50- to 60-per-cent improvement in my foot and ankle and a 30-per-cent improvement in my hand.” However, thanks to encourage- C O M P L E X R E G I O N A L PA I N S Y N D R O M E Photographer Ross McCreery recently launched a part-time business. QC Photo by Don healy ment from physiotherapists and a suggestion from a sister in Vancouver, McCreery decided to pick up a camera. Always a novice photographer, McCreery thought taking pictures might be the perfect activity to help him improve his physical abilities, but also give him a sense of accomplishment he hadn’t had since his diagnosis. “I lost the passion for photography but at the back of my mind, it kept weighing on me. I wanted to get back into photography. And at physio, they were trying to get me to do something out of my regular routine. And my brain kept telling me that I should be doing photography.” Under the terms of his disability claim he’s allowed to earn small amounts of money, so he decided to launch a part-time photography business, which allows him to work only when he’s able. “This isn’t about me being able to make a ton of money from this; it’s about me doing something active,” said McCreery, adding he hopes others with disabilities will be encour- aged by his recent accomplishments in the world of photography. “If you want to do something like open a business, there are avenues that you can pursue.” His specialty is landscape photography but he has recently done more portrait work and is learning about industrial photography. McCreery sells prints on his website (rossmccreeryphotography.com) and is available for hire. He said his work isn’t different from most professional photographers’ because he’s been able to work around his physical challenges, which include a special gizmo that allows him to simultaneously hold the camera and manually adjust the focus using his right hand. He doesn’t want people seeking out his work only because of his disability. “There is a little bit of a sympathy card there, but what makes my work different other photographers’ is how I go about taking the pictures,” McCreery said. “I still have eyes. And my eyes work well.” LEADERPOST.COM/QC THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2012 9 TAKING THE PULSE Abo ri gi nal I ssues economy d Assiste Ab or tio n The 1,750 SURVEYS. THOUSANDS OF OPINIONS.

Our characters, our professions, our interests, our personalities all contribute to who we are. When we die, earthly evidence of our presence is reflected in the memories of our loved ones and in a piece of stone that marks our graves — so that piece of stone is pretty important to many of us. Companies like Remco Memorials are in the business of helping memories last, transforming slabs of granite into reflections of our lives. Remco was founded in 1924 by Thomas L. Reeson, who believed “every life is worthy of memorialization.” Today the monument company is headed by Dave Reeson, the owner’s grandson. Based in Regina, Remco has locations across Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia. QC photos by Bryan Schlosser 12 T h u rs day, O c TO b e r 1 8, 2 0 1 2 l e a d e r p O sT.cO m /q c The stones are lined up on a long system of steel rollers and are rolled down to senior stencil applicator Eve Deneve, who applies the stencils to the stones. The stencil for each stone is laser cut by a machine onto a piece of adhesive poly plastic. Since it’s only partially cut through, after the stencil is adhered to the stone, Deneve must pick out all of the intricate pieces. When she’s done, the design of the stone is evident. The poly that remains protects the stone during the next step: sandblasting. Raw granite markers are uncrated, washed and inspected. If they meet the standard for use, a polisher begins work on the stone. Here, Mason Dick polishes the sharp edges of a monument, creating 45degree chamfers. In cemeteries, “People are putting along with lawn mowers, so there’s a benefit to having that sharp corner taken off, and some of it’s cosmetic,” explains Barry White, Remco production operations manager. qc phOTOs by bryaN schlOsser The markers are moved from the stencil area into an automatic sandblaster, which engraves the design onto the stone. Here, the nozzle on the blaster moves back and forth to do the engraving. There is sometimes a double process for sandblasting in which the markers are first worked on by the machine, then are hand-sandblasted to create more intricate detail.

One day I bought a plain notebook and began writing an idea I had for a book. It was about a boy coming of age through the game of hockey . The title was easy: Rink Burgers. Eventually those long breaks became a splendid isolation. Day after day I kept writing about memories of growing up in Big River in the 1980s. For years I didn’t tell anyone about Rink Burgers. I had never written a book and I wondered what would people say if I told them I was writing a novel. Yeah, good one Todd. And the Boston Bruins will win a Stanley Cup in your lifetime. Well now, both have happened. I loved hockey from the first time I played it. My father and I grew up cheering for the Bruins. It may seem strange to hear a Canadian boy cheering for an American team, but I had a reason. Barry Pederson played for the Boston Bruins and he was from Big River. But in the 1980s the Bruins were victimized year after year by the hated Montreal Canadiens. It doesn’t help when most of your uncles, cousins and aunties are all Montreal fans either. I still have enough golf tees from all of them to last a lifetime. Pond hockey and street hockey were exciting and fun, but hockey at the rink was special. No matter whether you won or lost, a good old rink burger was waiting for you at the end of a game. It softened the blow of a crushing defeat or amplified the thrill of victory .

Sponsored by the University of Saskatchewan’s Centre for Continuing and Distance Education, it is scheduled from May 5 to 21 and offers a mix of horticulture, history , heritage and handicrafts. It is limited to 20 participants. The group will be accompanied by a licensed guide and landscape curator Gursan Ergil for the entire tour. Ergil spent six years studying landscape design, history and preservation at Harvard University’s Arnold Arboretum. Today , he is based in Istanbul, where he lectures, writes books on gardens, crafts eco-friendly furniture and designs sustainable landscapes. Ergil is also the landscape curator at Princes’ Island Museum. “One of the highlights of the tour — and there are many — will be visits to several 19th and early 20th century private gardens on the Princes’ Islands off the coast of Istanbul, where horse carriages are the form of transportation. Normally closed to the public, these are being made accessible to our group through Gursan (Ergil),” said Williams. The tour begins in Istanbul, then southwest toward Bozcaada on the Aegean, on to the small village of Birgi near Odemis, then Selcuk-Ephesus. It then heads east, inland to Nazilli and Pamukkale, and further east to Isparta, then south to Antalya toward the Mediterranean coast, then northeast to Konya, and further east to Cappadocia. From Cappadocia, the group takes an evening flight back to Istanbul and the Princes’ Islands. In Istanbul, Ergil will lead the group through the Ataturk Arboretum, Belgrade Forest and the Istanbul University Botanic Garden as well as the gardens of the Topkapi and Dolmabahce palaces. Other horticultural visits include a vineyard and winery , olive groves and an olive oil facility , two additional private gardens, the largest nursery in Turkey , two organic farms, a fig orchard (one of the most important horticultural crops of the Aydin region) and a rose farm. Ergil will also lead the group on walks on Mount Ida and the Taurus Mountains to view native flora. Many of our prairie garden plants such as tulips, fritillary , oriental poppies, globe thistles, and peonies are native to Turkey . The tour includes many of the sites first-time visitors to Turkey want to see such as the Blue Mosque, the Grand Bazaar and the Ayasofia Muat the Sultanhani Caravansarai, an example of Selcuk architecture. The group will visit a co-operative textile workshop in Denizli, the pottery village of Avanos, a carpet workshop in the Taurus Mountains, enjoy traditional Anatolian folk dancing (in a historical Turkish bath), meet villagers in Soke and visit the Tahtacilar, an ethnic group of the Taurus Mountains whose culture and traditions evolve around trees. Akcenis is one of their traditional villages. In Konya, the religious centre of Turkey, the group will visit the Mevlana Museum, the Alaadin Mosque and Castle and the Karatay Medressah with its exquisite collection of Seljuck tiles. “This is a pretty unique tour and Gursan Ergil has opened many doors to us that most tourists never get near. The agency in Turkey has worked hard to put together a wonderful balance of “can’t miss” sites and places many of us have never heard of before,” said Williams.

His band Gunner & Smith isn’t set to play for a few more hours, and in the meantime the bar’s stereo pumps a mix of top-40, with Gotye’s “Somebody I Used to Know” edging into the conversation. While the soundtrack at the bar is a generic satellite stream, Smith believes people in Saskatoon are coming around to supporting original music made by members of the city’s burgeoning live music scene. “It’s been a great place to play . Every show we’ve played we’ve felt excited about afterwards because people have been so positive,” he says. Smith lists a handful of young bands that form a supportive scene in the city including Pirate Fridays, Young Benjamins and Castle River. “We’re trying our best to always be pushing each other and letting people know. I think there’s a lot of people making really good music around here.” Though they’re friends, each of the groups vary in sound and style. Gunner & Smith put forth honest roots rock with a compelling amount of grit, given a special sparkle by Olya Kutsiuruba’s stunning harmonies and Smith’s intelligent lyrics. “When it comes down to music we don’t really have a set style. A little bit of blues, a little bit of country, a little bit of indie rock,” he says. Smith started playing on his own about five years ago and slowly built the rest of the group around him. He was conscious about the musicians he surrounded himself with, ensuring that each one had enough experience to bring something worthwhile to the group. “I feel like for us it’s not so much about trying really hard to make it right away . It’s been a long journey for some of us.” The band came together fully in January of 2012 and now boasts five members. The last to join was guitar player Lance Brown, as Smith wouldn’t settle for someone who would noodle away while the band played. “I was very picky about the guitar player I found. I had to wait a little while,” he says. “I wanted someone who is a good guitar player but not Gunner & Smith released its first EP, Compromise is a Loaded Gun. submiTTed phOTO by maTT smiTh. someone who needed to be too forefront. I needed someone who could guitar solo but didn’t need to guitar solo. Someone who played around the vocals rather than played over them.” This careful approach to songcraft has paid off on their first full band EP, Compromise is a Loaded Gun, which was released in August. The group is planning a series of out of town dates and hope to hit some summer festivals next year. In the meantime, they play frequently in Saskatoon. SUBSCRIBE WHOLE STORY.

Email QC@leaderpost.com Newfoundlander is 145 pounds of love By Ashley Martin When Tammy Cossette and her family got their Newfoundland dog Diogi from a breeder south of Swift Current, he was nine weeks old and weighed 20 pounds. Fast-forward six years and Diogi weighs 145 pounds and stands about three feet tall. But that’s nothing compared to some Newfies. At the breeder, “There was one dog much bigger than Diogi, taller than the car when we got out,” says Cossette. The Cossettes’ two cats, Thelma and Louise, didn’t take too kindly to the dog at first, “but Diogi likes everybody . They’re starting to tolerate him after six years.” He’s usually well-behaved and doesn’t bark very often — except to tease the little dogs across the neighbour’s fence: “He’ll be outside and he’ll decide, ‘Oh the two neighbour dogs aren’t barking,’ so he’ll go over to the fence and (bark) and he just walks away, cause some trouble.” TA M M Y C o s s E T T E A N D D I o G I Q: How much does Diogi cost to feed? A: Believe it or not, not as much as you’d think. Especially in the summer, he only eats maybe three to four cups of food a day but he always gets extra of special stuff, like some chicken or hamburger, so maybe one big bag a month. He’s fussy. Q: What’s his favourite thing to eat? A: Those chicken strip or duck strip treats. Anything like that, or chicken. His least favourite thing is olives. He has to sit in the living room when we’re having supper ... and there’s usually a puddle on the floor by the time (we’re done). Q: Where do you go for walks? A: We usually just go around our park here and that usually takes about an hour. But then sometimes I take him to Wascana, around the Legislative building and all that. He’s not a runner and he doesn’t play fetch or anything like that. He’s kind of like a guardian, so if there’s any other dog crying or anything, he has to make sure it’s OK. Q: Are people and other dogs leery of him? A: Some are, but I’ve only run into maybe three people that have been kind of leery, like ‘can I get by? I don’t want to meet your dog.’ If they don’t want to meet him, we just keep on walking; we don’t stop or whatever. But nine Robert Cossette and his wife Tammy with their 145-pound Newfoundlander, Diogi. qc phOTO by TrOy Fleece times out of 10, people stop and say, ‘Can I meet your dog?’ (Once while walking) him down Dewdney I had one guy stop in his van, going through the light, stop in the middle of the street and say, ‘Is that a Newfoundlander?’ Q: Do you think he’s harder to maintain than smaller dogs? A: Not for walks or feeding or anything like that. The only thing is because of his long fur — keeping him brushed — that’s probably the hardest thing. And his ears, because they’re floppy, it’s a big place for bacteria. Q: What kind of a process is it to bath him? A: Normally I don’t do it in the bath tub. Usual- ly I go to the pet care place and they just have a walk-in shower. It usually takes about an hour from start to finish. It can be fun. He usually likes to shake before you’re done. He’s very oily so it’s hard to get the underneath coat wet so it takes a long time. They use that breed for water rescue. Believe it or not though, he’s not the best swimmer. He’ll only go in as deep as his feet. We have to make him go deeper to actually start swimming. They do the breaststroke too, they don’t do a regular doggie paddle. Q: Do you have any funny stories about Diogi? A: About two summers ago we were outside and we were putting our garbage into the garbage bin and he had to go out and come with us. He doesn’t usually come very well when we call his name, so he decided to go exploring. He went running and the neighbours across the street don’t have a fence across their backyard and it was summer so they were barbecuing on their little deck. They had their door open and Diogi decided he needed to go meet the neighbour, and I was chasing him and he went scooting into their house. He went into their house, went into their kitchen, saw what they were barbecuing and then into the living room, freaked out their daughter. He was in their house making new friends for at least 20 minutes. Luckily they’d met him before, but they were like, ‘Don’t let him take our steaks!’ I was so embarrassed. 22 T h u rs day, O c TO b e r 1 8, 2 0 1 2 l e a d e r p O sT.cO m /q c SPACES # S a S k at c h e wa n ' S b e S t S pa c e S Spaces celebrates beauty both indoors and out.

He used barn board from Outlook (in the back bathroom) on the walls. It’s got a door like a real outhouse. They put pictures in the knots of the wood. There’s a horse (picture) behind the toilet. “We tried to grow grass but because of the big root systems of the trees, it didn’t work. There was a big huge tree that covered the backyard but we cut that down last year and now we get a ton of light back here.

Email firstname.lastname@example.org # pa r e N t t o pa r e N t Each week QC gathers advice from parents to share with other moms and dads. This week we asked: How do you teach your children about bullying? “It starts from the day they are born! Right now we teach our son by how we treat each other and others around us. We don’t yell or call each other names and treat each other with respect. As he gets older and begins to understand the concept, he will be taught that EVERYONE deserves to be treated with respect no matter their race, religion, economic status or sexual orientation. I believe it begins at home and if they see us treating others with anger and disrespect, that becomes acceptable. We as parents are their first teachers and must set the first positive example!” — Laura Laird “Tell an adult. It’s that simple. My son just entered school and sooner or later he will either witness bullying, be a bully or be a victim to it. He knows bullying is not acceptable as well as being bullied. Good communication and what he learns at home will hopefully allow him to cope with this.” — Alysia Czmuchalek “The daycare had a police officer come out and talk to the kids about bullying and consequences of their actions. It was a good learning experience for the little ones and they talked about it for a long time after. We teach the kids to respect one another and to look out for each other. If you cannot ignore someone’s behaviour, tell an adult.” — Carla Contreras “We try to teach our kids to treat other kids the way they would like to be treated. My kids now understand hurt feelings and they know they will have consequences if they do it to anyone else. It is tougher to teach your kids about what to do when they are being bullied. We have tried to let them know that they should stand up for themselves within reason and that it is okay to tell someone if they are being bullied.” — Nikki Melnyk “Keeping an open line of communication. Encouraging them to always come to us when they have questions or problems. If they have problems at school, we also encouraged them to talk to their teachers or principal. We also talked about the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do onto you.” — Judy S.

And just to make things interesting, Jupiter throws obstacles in the path to all Venus wants, making her work even more diligently for good results. The squared aspect between Venus and Jupiter will affect our sense of fulfilment across the board. The good part is that people enjoy and appreciate what they work hard to achieve. ARIES (March 21-April 19). There’s a possibility that you know things that you couldn’t possibly know, like the future and past of every living thing on the planet. Or maybe not. But you get the feeling that your intuitive knowledge is growing stronger by the day. That’s why logical choices aren’t the best. Move on your heart’s desire. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Consider that you can achieve a certain state of mind by doing things the way they used to be done before the modern age — for instance, writing a note by hand or using the stove instead of the microwave. That state of mind will be calming, pleasant and worth the extra effort it took to get there. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You naturally see what is useful and helpful in your environment, and you’ll generously point it out to others. You have a way of making what is good for a person also seem mighty appealing. You can’t force others to choose well, but by choosing well yourself, you highlight the benefits of doing so. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are charismatic and people are drawn to you. This isn’t always a good thing. You feel nervous when someone wants to be your friend and you’re not sure why . You’ll be wary of excessive kindness and you’re correct to set up boundaries that encourage relationships to develop in a slow, controlled fashion. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ve felt at times that you were a supporting character in someone else’s movie — or worse, an extra. That’s why you give your full attention when it’s someone else’s turn to shine. Also, you have a way of drawing people out and letting them know they are important to you. Your generosity of spirit will make a difference. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). An event on the horizon is fast approaching. Success depends on your ability to think ahead about how you’ll navigate the details. When the pressure is on, it’s likely you will do your best because of the physical and mental preparations you make this week. So, with the end in mind, work backward. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your thoughts may be in a state of disarray at times this week, but you can’t deny that there’s a certain beauty to this. Your physical environment reflects the disorder. You could easily clean it up, but do take your time. There is wisdom to glean from this “hot mess” status. Also, you are ultra-attractive to a certain someone. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The truth is that you won’t know what makes you happy until you’ve sampled a number of options. The experience of doing so sometimes will be unpleasant, disappointing or bitter. And that makes finding what really makes you happy all the more gratifying. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). While some make the same mistakes over and over, you are mindful to learn from the past. Experience has made you stronger and wiser. If you do feel yourself slipping into an unwanted pattern as the planets test you mid-week, you’ll be quick to interrupt the pattern and replace it with a more pleasing behaviour. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ve been bolder at other times in your life. This week you won’t feel the strong need to put yourself out there. Don’t worry that your reserve shows weakness or a lack of confidence. The opposite is true. You sense that you have much to learn, and you’re wise to hang back and observe. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will be drawn to pursuits of higher learning, though something may hold you back. Perhaps you see some types of education as a luxury. Rest assured, your quest for knowledge is anything but selfish. You see no point in learning if you can’t share what you know with those who could use the information. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The need to win at all times is a disease that robs people of pleasure and happiness. So you go into this week in a laid-back mood. Even though there is a prize dangling in the future, you understand that it’s not going to satisfy you to get it unless you enjoy and feel good about the process. THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS: All of your goals are aligned this year. You’ll be where the action is for the next six weeks. In December, you’ll find the most excitement — as well as love, comfort and whatever else you need — right at home. You’ll have examples of success around you in January, some of which will come from dear friends. Be careful not to compare yourself with others. Competing with others makes enemies. When you compete with yourself, everyone will cheer you on. Holiday Mathis is the author of Rock Your Stars.

Some of this is due to Western chauvinism — we instinctively buy Okanagan — and some of it is due to small production. Whatever the reason, wine drinkers are doing themselves a disservice if they don’t try these wines. Chateau des Charmes is perhaps the oldest family vineyard in Canada. Last April I reviewed Equuleus, a stunning red wine from them, and I was pleased to see a new listing of theirs, Generation Seven. It’s more of a table wine aimed at people who balk at the $40 price tag of Equuleus. The whites of Ontario can be wonderful and this wine is a fine Canadian blend. It’s a mix of Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Gewurztraminer. Any number of people spurn Riesling and Gewurztraminer because of the floral nose — they associate the bouquet with sweet. Terpenes (as in turpentine) are the chemical compound that cause these aromas. If you think gasoline smells sweet you’ll understand the connection. To some people these floral aromas can be overpowering, which is a shame because these wines are among the most food friendly in the world. Generation Seven is a great blend, with that trademark floral nose leading you into a brisk citrus palate that finishes lean. You can drink this stuff with just about anything, but if you IT’S BACK! Agribition Building, Evraz Place October19-21 like stir fried vegetables with noodles or pasta primavera it’s a great match. Better yet, pull a trout from the water and fry it in butter to go with the wine. There are few pleasures greater than whitefish and a wine like this.

Email QC@leaderpost.com or visit QC on Facebook Dining with a view By Jenn Sharp Both Saskatoon and Regina have beautiful natural surroundings — Saskatoon has the South Saskatchewan River and Regina has Wascana Lake. However, both cities lack an abundance of restaurants boasting a view of these natural surroundings. In Saskatoon, the riverbank falls under the Meewasin Valley Authority’s conservation zone, which spreads 60 km along the river through Saskatoon, southwest to Pike Lake and northeast to Clarke’s Crossing ferry . As such, development is forbidden on the riverbank, which I don’t think is such a bad thing. However, it would be nice if there was somewhere one could enjoy the view of the riverbank while sipping a glass of wine. Hopefully, in the not-too-distant future, that will change. The city is currently updating and repurposing the A.L. Cole Pumphouse (the only surviving remnant of the Saskatoon Powerplant), located south of the Farmers’ Market at River Landing. Once finished, this building will be leased to a restaurant proprietor. The talk (and my hope) is that a wine bar will fill the space. Conceptual plans allow for a rooftop patio and big windows inside the building. River Landing has the potential to become one of the best dining spots in the province and if the A.L. Cole Pumphouse is developed correctly, the site will be well on its way . Regina’s lovely Willow on Wascana’s has undoubtedly the best view in the city . The dining room is enclosed by large windows providing views of Wascana Lake and the Saskatchewan Legislative building. It hosts all kinds of events on the terrace — from weddings to the recent Great Saskatchewan Mustard Festival. The options are pretty limited in Saskatoon if you want to catch a glimpse of the river while you eat. The Sheraton’s Top of the Inn ballroom is one way to do it — but only if you’re at a wedding or conference. The hotel’s Windows restaurant has a great view but it’s more of the downtown park than the river itself. Same goes for the Parktown’s Four Seasons dining room. Several tables in the Bessborough’s Garden Court Café look out over the river, as well. Golf course dining is always a good bet if you want a view. Try the Wascana Golf and Country Club or the Deer Valley Golf Course in Regina. Deer Valley even has gourmet hot dogs. In Saskatoon, Riverside Golf and Country Club has one of the best golf course views I’ve seen. Big problem though: You have to be a member of the exclusive golf course to eat there (and I definitely can’t afford membership!) Another option is The Willows’ Il Salici Ristorante & Lounge. Classic Italian dining with a modern twist is the tag line at Il Salici and I would emphasize the modern aspect of that statement. On a recent visit I was disappointed to not find more Italian entrees on the menu. It was a bit heavy on meat and potatoes dishes, albeit with an Italian twist. However, there were several Italian appetizers and six pasta options. My dining partner had the linguine all’ astice, gamberi e cozze (lobster, shrimp and mussels with garlic, chili, wine, lemon, tomato and capers) while I tried a modern twist on an original: Elk ragout with flat broad pasta. While we both enjoyed our meals, the view was what really took our breath away . Easily Saskatoon’s most beautiful dining spot and accessible to all, Il Salici has a monopoly at the Willows and should be visited at least once.

The air is getting chillier and all I want to do is cuddle up with a blanket and a bowl of Renee Kohlman’s caramel popcorn with roasted nuts. In case you don’t know, Kohlman keeps up a gorgeous food blog called Sweet Sugar Bean (sweetsugarbean.com) which is where this recipe came from. Note to the wise: Don’t look at the blog when you’re hungry. Kohlman’s photography skills are wicked and I hear her cooking is even better. INGREDIENTS: > 3 cups nuts (I used whole pecans and almonds) > 2 cups of butter (I used salted) > 18 cups popped popcorn > 2 2/3 cups brown sugar , lightly packed > 1 cup of Rogers Golden Syrup or corn syrup if you can’t find Rogers > 1 tsp cream of tartar > 1 tsp baking soda > 1 tbsp rum cream of tartar in a sauce pan. Cook until it forms a ball when dropped into a glass of water, or for about 5 minutes. It’s tricky, I know, but trust me, it will be okay . Just stir, stir, stir. 3. Remove from heat, stir in the baking soda and rum. Bubbles! Then pour over the nuts and popcorn. Stir really well, and divide it amongst two greased cookie sheets (I used butter, of course) and press it into the pans. 4. Let it cool, then tear it into pieces to devour immediately, or pack it into airtight containers. If you want to freeze it, go ahead, just let it thaw for an hour before digging in. Makes a rather large batch. METHOD: 1. Heat oven to 300F. Spread nuts on cookie sheet and roast for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally and keeping an eyeball on them. Let them cool and mix with your popped corn in a VERY large bowl (or two not so large bowls.) 2. Combine sugar, butter, syrup and 36 THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2012 LEADERPOST.COM/QC Heated Seat Pre-Winter Sale $ ENTRY FORMS AVAILABLE IN STORE. 299 Starting at Escort - Passport 9500IX Radar/Laser Detector with GPS Technology • 360° protection with off-axis laser detection Keeps you aware of your speed while you’re on the road. • Preloaded North America safety camera database Includes red light and speed camera locations for simple viewing • AutoLearn function Automatically locks out false alarms by using GPS technology • Voice alert Delivers clear alerts and features intelligent volume control for customized audio • Displays vehicle speed When receiving an alert, so you stay on top of your speed conditions. • Web-ready For easy location database updates Reg: $700 95 per seat installed SAVE $100 REMOTE CAR STARTERS.
