Weather for the week . . . Friday, Aug. 16 ARIES – Mar 21/Apr 20 Don’t let your emotions get the best of you in a heated situation, Aries. You can come out on top if you remain calm and think through your responses with utmost caution. TAURUS – Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, there are a few different ways you can play an upcoming situation. Taking a back seat and letting another person lead the way may be the smartest strategy. GEMINI – May 22/Jun 21 A few opportunities may drop into your lap, Gemini. However, just because things come about easily does not mean they are the right choices for right now. CANCER – Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, keeping things bottled up until the last minute seems to be the way you have been operating lately. You may want to try sharing your feelings and seeking feedback. LEO – Jul 23/Aug 23 Wearing your emotions on your sleeve may get you attention, Leo, but it won’t necessarily be the kind of attention you were hoping for. Reconsider what you share. VIRGO – Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, it can be challenging to relinquish control, but that is just what you will have to do at some point this week. This will be a good lesson to learn.

LIBRA – Sept 23/Oct 23 It’s hard to see someone’s perspective when you have never gone through this particular situation, Libra. Keep that in mind when supporting a loved one in need. SCORPIO – Oct 24/Nov 22 All it takes is a subtle change of perception to turn a situation around, Scorpio. Start by taking a few risks outside of your comfort zone for some new inspiration. SAGITTARIUS – Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, it is good to be proud of your accomplishments. Just be sure not to come across as boastful, especially in certain company. You don’t want to come across as bragging. CAPRICORN – Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, asking for help is not admitting weakness. If you feel you are in over your head, call in the reinforcements. Then you can get back on track more quickly. AQUARIUS – Jan 21/Feb 18 Good fortune is coming your way, and you can certainly spread the wealth if you desire, Aquarius. Chances are there are a few other people who can use a smile in the weeks to come. PISCES – Feb 19/Mar 20 Job security may have you sticking with a position long after the time has come to move on, Pisces. Reexamine the bigger picture and your goals.

From Front page - Arcola Rodeo Submitted by Chris Nidesh, President Arcola Rodeo Committee Hello rodeo fans. On Friday August 9 the Arcola Rodeo Committee held their 3rd annual Manitoba Rodeo Cowboys Association Prime Time Rodeo rough stock event, MBRA barrel jackpot and open team roping. The action started early Friday morning with the ladies barrel jackpot with the top ten girls returning to run in the evening performance, the ladies did not disappoint with how stiff the competition was. The performance action started off with an introduction to the hard working members of the Arcola Rodeo Committee during a beautiful grand entry with local cowgirl Cassie Eaton flying the Saskatchewan flag and High School Rodeo Queen Ember Schira flying the Canadian flag during the National Anthem. The action started with the saddle bronc and once again Jim Lawrence’s bucking horses did not disap-

point one spectator in the stands, these cowboys were forced to work for their money, with Tyler Winters of Douglas Sk. aboard the bucking horse Wheel House of Prime Time Rodeos with a score of 78 to top the pack. In the bareback riding it was Travis Heeb of Lestock Sk. aboard One Iron that pulled out the win with a well deserved 77 point ride. The young cowboys showed up to ride in the Jr Steer Riding, with almost all the young hands throwing up scores to the board, Tanner Skene of Prince Albert Sk. was able to take the buckle home with a 74 point ride. When the dust settled in the ladies barrels it was young Moosomin cowgirl Cloe Woods that sped her way to the win on her horse Mixer with a time of 18.30 seconds. Way to go Cloe. One of the fan favorite events in Arcola include the Mutton Bustin where local kids get to try their hand at staying aboard some wild and wooly sheep provided by Coreen Brigden of Kisby, all the kids did extremely well, provid-

ing lots of giggles among the crowd. Coreen also provides extra entertainment with her amazing border collie herding dogs at the end of the mutton Bustin. The wild pony racing is also a fan favorite, this years winning team was Wyatt and Shilo Mickler of Fillmore and Hanna Wyatt of Kisby. The wild horse racing proved once again to be one of the rougher sports in our rodeo, second only to the bullriding, this year we had a former winning team return and grit out yet another win through sheer determination! Well done Mike Wyatt of Kisby, Brett Mickler of Fillmore and Tyce White of Carnduff. Our first team roping event was held this year during the performance and local header Ralph French of Arcola along with his Redvers heeler Doug Moore were able to take top spot, good job guys. And last but not least, Wyatt Lavallee of Poplar Point Mb. Was able to get a good one twisted in the bullriding throwing up a score of 84 points to finish off the night with a bang.

Quote of the Week...

“Time is nature’s way of keeping everything from happening at once.” - John Archibald Wheeler

We need responsible leaders that inspire By Murray Mandryk Exactly what great political leadership is tends to vary, but here are two qualities that surely must be at the top of anyone’s list. A great leader inspires, convincing people there are better options for us all. Great leadership is always visionary. A great leader does tough things, taking responsibility for ideas and decisions that might not be popular with many but are surely necessary. It is seldom we consistently see both from political leaders over a prolonged career. Consider Saskatchewan’s three most predominate political leaders during the last quarter of the last century. Progressive Conservative leader Grant Devine was truly an inspirational leader who had us believing “there’s so much more we can be”. He convinced the Saskatchewan electorate we did have a strong, individualistic, free-enterprise streak that would allow us to succeed through lower taxes and less dependence on government and cooperative philosophies. But while this was Devine’s success and perhaps his lasting legacy, he and his Progressive Conservative government failed in the expectations that a leader must provide responsible government even when the decisions entailed in providing that are not popular. Devine got us dreaming big, but he wound up making us pay for big deficits. By contrast, both NDP premiers Allan Blakeney and Roy Romanow showed us they could deliver responsible government with balanced budgets. In Romanow’s case, that involved exceedingly unpopular decisions in the wake of Devine’s free-spending days. However, neither Blakeney nor Romanow proved to be all that inspirational to their electorate, or at least, not when compared with their own idol Tommy Douglas and not even when compared with Devine’s vision. In fairness, it’s harder to assess today’s political leaders whose work hasn’t yet stood the test of time. That requires getting elected to government and spending long periods there. It’s even tough to say what will be the legacy of Brad Wall, a truly inspirational leader, but one whose government struggled to provide responsible budgets built the economy without irresponsible debt levels. Wall and his successor Scott Moe did implement tough economic measures to right the course a couple years ago, but we may still need a few years to measure success. However, it’s never too early for today’s politicians to consider their legacy. And it’s actually an important thing for them to consider because it simultaneously curb temptations to offer only what they think voters want to hear when they are lowly Opposition leaders. Sadly, some current leaders are offering far too much of what they thing we want to hear. New Alberta Premier Jason Kenney is hyping the notion of alienation and even separation (inexcusable, for any national or provincial leader in a county that’s long-fought separatists in Quebec) if Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is re-elected the west. This isn’t leadership. It’s feeding the worst sentiments in all of us, irresponsible politics that’s potentially destructive. Perhaps federal Conservative leader Andrew Scheer and Saskatchewan Party Premier Scott Moe haven’t gone quite as far has Kenney has of late. But both are also dabbling in alienation sentiments, all too eager to use tricks at their disposal to unseat Trudeau. In Scheer’s case, it’s been a barrage of criticism without truly inspirational alternatives _ especially when it comes to a fulsome alternative to the carbon tax to deal with the serious issues of greenhouse gas emissions and manmade global warming. Moe has similarly struggled in this vein. Of late, he and his government seem to upping the ante when it comes to petty bickering with Trudeau and long-serving Liberal Regina MP Ralph Goodale over federal funding for projects in Regina and Saskatoon. Great political leadership is also about working with others with different opinions for the betterment of all. Right now, we need more of it.

Where’s your investment? They sat in pretty gold frames on the china cabinet. In the fall my mother would carefully add the new 5x7 picture and ensure the glass was completely spotless to display the latest image that represented the current school year. It started with the note from school announcing what My Outlook date Picture Day would be. DeShelley Luedtke pending upon age and gender of the child there were many topics discussed: what to wear, how to do your hair, glasses on or off, and time in front of the mirror practicing the perfect smile. One by one our photos were taken. Sit up straight, tilt your head, lift your chin, look this way... we would obediently follow the photographer’s instruction until that moment when the shot was taken and our image forever captured. The day the proofs arrived we clutched the envelope to our chest until we had a private moment to view it before the comments of classmates began: “let me see yours”, “oh, they’re so good”, “mine are so bad” and sadly “I hate how I look.” It started in small amounts in elementary school but came in unrelenting torrents in high school. The older we got the more we seemed to became critical of how we looked. In the last 20 years there has been a 356% increase in non-surgical cosmetic procedures. The number of women seeking surgical options has grown 471%. Men are requesting plastic surgery in numbers never before seen--up 273% from twenty years ago. All this to the tune of 12 billion dollars. Despite all these efforts 80% of women report being dissatisfied with their appearance. This message is being passed along with alarming con-

sequences when you consider that symptoms of eating disorders are occurring in rising numbers of children in kindergarten...yes, kindergarten. Consider this: given the current level of expenditures it is estimated that with an additional 9 billion dollars we could provide water and sanitation for all people in developing nations. Last year consumers in one country spent 8 billion dollars on cosmetics. One country...8 billion dollars. If we were to re-direct some, just some, of that money more people would have access to a simple cup of clean water. Responding to the increases in those seeking cosmetic procedures, a representative of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery said people are “investing in themselves once again.” We can be fully supportive of the concept of investing in ourselves but we need a broader approach. Like reading more books, pursuing a different career, enrolling in a new class, paying greater attention to our health, making more time for family, visiting a shut-in, volunteering, and donating our time and resources to causes beyond ourselves. Those investments pay off far better dividends. Following my mother’s example, each fall I added my daughters’ latest school picture to older ones in the frame. Beyond the smiles or special hairstyles is a snapshot in time--not of a pictureperfect image--but of girls growing, learning and becoming the person they were meant to become. As much as I appreciate these pictures there are others I love looking at so much more; the ones where they are reaching out in love to others on a mission team, the ones where they are playing their hearts out on the soccer pitch, or the candid shots, not posed for the camera, but lived in the moment. Each picture is a window into a much wider story that has little to do with looks and everything to do with living. That’s my outlook.

Financial Focus Managing Your Money - Should you own gold? Certain investors like to hold gold – and it’s easy to understand why. From early civilizations, to dynasties, empires and kingdoms, gold has held value and, for centuries, has been a recognized monetary currency throughout most of the world because it is scarce, controllable and recognizable. It has been long established as a symbol of art, spirituality and wealth – and continues to be so today. Even in this digital age of credit, debit and paper currency, gold is still considered valuable and, for some investors, a valuable part of an investment portfolio. But is gold a good choice for you as an investment, especially for your retirement? Not necessarily – here’s why.

Gold is, well, gold – and it still has an emotional pull for many people. But when you remove emotion from the equation, investment data paints a different picture of gold. In August 2016, two economics professors from Harvard University released a study titled Gold Returns published in The Economic Journal* which examined long-term U.S. data and argued that “changes in real gold prices co-vary negligibly with growth rates of consumption and, moreover, gold has not delivered high average real returns during macroeconomic disasters.” In other words, turning to gold during times of economic decline doesn’t necessarily provide the di-

versification needed to offset losses. Where it may help, though, is during a low interest rate environment as noted in “Negative Interest Rates: Implications for Investors”, published by the Investors Group Investment Strategy Group.** That’s because gold has no yield so it can be attractive when yields on other assets start to fall. For instance, its relationship with bond yields is typically inverse – when yields go down, gold strengthens, and vice versa. That’s why people sometimes use it as an inflation hedge. Proponents of gold, recommend having about 5% of assets in the yellow metal. History has shown that it doesn’t hold its value

and unlike stocks, gold has been known to be subject to lengthy periods of stagnation. So if you are going to invest in gold it should only be in very small amounts. There are many proven investment strategies for growing your wealth and funding a comfortable retirement. Whether one of them is to include gold in your portfolio depends on your unique financial goals and tolerance for risk. That’s why you should talk to your professional advisor to get gold standard advice about the right comprehensive financial plan for you.

Tips for surviving heat waves

Heat waves are a serious health hazard. In the absence of air conditioning, here are some things you can do to minimize the risk of heat-related medical emergencies. • Drink lots of water, even if you’re not thirsty. • Avoid alcoholic beverages, which can cause dehydration. • Eat water-rich foods like watermelon, tomatoes and cucumbers and opt for cold meals such as salads and sandwiches. • Take a cold shower or bath. • Visit the local swimming pool to cool down. Alternatively, you can use a water hose,

watering can or a cold compress. • Between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. the sun is at its strongest, so avoid going outside between those times if possible. • Protect yourself from the sun. If you have to be outside, stay in the shade and wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. • Wear loose, light-coloured clothes that breathe well. • Visit an air-conditioned space like a mall, library or movie theatre. • Close your windows and blinds to keep the air inside your home cooler. Keeping

your windows open at night is a good idea if the outside temperature is lower than the inside temperature. • Reduce physical activity and avoid serious exertion if possible. In addition to the above, it’s a good idea to be familiar with the signs of heatstroke and heat exhaustion, which includes red skin, lack of perspiration, dizziness, nausea and confusion. Be especially vigilant around seniors and children. Keep a close eye on your pets: they too can suffer health complications during a heat wave.

Pause for Reflection

By Ken Rolheiser www.kenrolheiser.com

Signs and wonders and living in hope Recently at a family gathering one of my siblings asked a question all of us face as we get older, “Is heaven real? What will happen when we leave this world.?” How real is our faith and how real is eternity? I like to answer with the signs and wonders that happen in the lives of faith filled families. Faith is often predicated on being able to separate coincidence from miracle. In the end it doesn’t really matter. Everything is a gift from God. Let me share a few of my family’s stories. “Isabelle’s fireworks” is related by my niece. Members of the family were called to the hospital after her mom’s passing. “As my family and I drove back to the hospital to be with dad at 4:00 that morning, in the barley field across the road from our family farm fireworks were going off. “We told dad about the fireworks when we arrived at the hospital, and he mentioned how he had told mom just before she passed away to give him a sign when she got to heaven. Those fireworks must have been her sign. “You see our farm is 10 km from the nearest town and 100 km from the nearest city, so the odds were pretty slim that we would see fireworks at the particular moment.” Then there is the story about my sister’s pressure cooker exploding as she was making soup. Some time later when the baby was grown enough to articulate the event, she saw a picture of her grandfather and said, “I know him. He’s the one who saved me from the hot soup.” Then there is my nephew who was hit by a train. His truck was totaled. Someone viewing the picture asked how many were killed. My nephew relates

how two men took him out of the truck and placed him in the ditch. He was upset that they disappeared and left him there. Once on a trip to Regina for a Lay Ministries training weekend, I was heading towards Balgonie at dusk. I had just finished praying a Rosary and was thinking of passing a slow-moving truck ahead of me. I decided not to rush. Just then a car passed from the front with no lights on. There was no way I would have seen that car if I had passed. “Thank you, Dad.” We can live lives of faith, knowing that the Saints who have gone before us and our guardian angels look after us. There are many stories in our family tree that make it easier to face the reality of our journey’s end. It is real. Our journey will end. And there is much to look forward to. Enjoy the moments when the veil separating us from heaven is thin. Let me give an example: The June following the accidental death of a young Canora man, his family was attending Sunday Mass on the weekend of the Graduation of one of the children. I was assisting with distributing Holy Communion. As I watched the family approach to receive the Eucharist, I glanced up at the mother. I noticed an image of her late husband above her and to her left. I can still see the smile on his face. He was still with his family. A long time passed before I shared this with anyone. Finally, prompted by the Holy Spirit, I shared the story with the family. Miracles in our daily lives continue to make God an exciting reality.

Busy with joy By Linda Wegner I’ve always been a busy person. There’s really no other way to describe my decades-long lifestyle: busy, busy, busy and loving it. For the last several years, however, I’ve stopped operating as a technical writing business, stopped (for health reasons) a number of volunteer activities and most difficult of all, stopped doing all my housework by myself. I admit it’s not been easy, this not being busy business. In an attempt to see how many other people share the struggle I’ve had in slowing down, I checked out a few quotes; these are some of them: ”If ants are such busy workers, how come they find time to go to all the picnics?” (Marie Dressler) Thought provoking to say the least! How’s this: “Keep busy while you are waiting for something to happen.” (Robert Genn). So true! Spending our time brooding over lost opportunities

or grieving over those things we can’t control is not only painful, it’s wasteful. In the Old Testament, Solomon writes these wise and provocative words: [The wise person] “will not dwell unduly on the days of his life, because God keeps him busy with the joy of his heart.” (Ecclesiastes 5:20). Kept busy with joy – what a liberating and exciting concept. On those days when we struggle with the inability to do what we once loved and delighted in doing (for what ever reason), we can rest yet continue to rejoice in the love and presence of a God who does not count our value by the hours of activity we track each day. Are physical challenges, the inability to find employment or some other factor contributing to your stress level? Ask God to show you how you can still use your talents for His glory. If you’re depressed, ask Him for the kind of joy that demands you share it!

Maryfield Villa News Submitted by Janet Mark It has been a great week for visitors; nearly a page in the visitors book. Violet Daku had Alan, Jerry McGregor, Lincoln and Marilyn Vellicott, Irene Husband and Garnet and Wendy Currie; Larry and Marion Husband; Rev. Cathy: Will and Lil, Dale and Linda Titterton, Winnipeg. Sherry Wilson saw Ruth and Mildred. Joyce Gillies had her daughter Sharon, and Kim Zacaruk, Regina; Roy Swanton; Mercy Kessler, Mark and Barb Knutti. Ralph Burke saw Dick and Jen Williams, Vancouver; Joan Colborn and Isobel Robertson . Ferne Jensen had Eric and Alex Jensen. Dallas and Debbie Toms visited Grace, Alan and Loraine Demas, Redvers; Christie Clayton, Olivia, Liam Owen and Myhre from Nipawin. Circle of Friends considered Stone, Rocks and Weeds. Violet told of an Indian Tent Ring of stones, rolled around a campground to hold down the skin walls of Indian tents. Clifford knew of a Buffalo Rock, 6 feet high, rubbed smooth by buffalo scratching on it. Children were the stone pickers of the prairie. Many of us helped pick or roll them onto a stoneboat

behind a quiet team of horses. The tall weed in the Villa flowerbed proved to be a Russian Thistle. They lodged in the fences of the open prairie, from Regina to the Moose Mountains. It brought back a song from the 30’s, “Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweed.” It lies dormant in wet years; and likely hitchhiked in Ukranian settlers baggage. Ralph Burke remembered how stinkweed tainted the milk, and could spoil a whole can of cream. Ralph Mills said that the weed grew so tall it caught in the car mirrors. Fred and his family picked mustard by hand out of the crop. If left to go to seed it could ruin the whole field. We all agreed that our favorite HATE WEED is portulaca/puslane. Mary looked it up on the internet, and it is “edible and healthy.” Dale Veysey was hoeing his corn and potatoes; and donated a bundle of portulaca. Gayle washed it thoroughly and cooked it as she does beet greens. Joyce and I preferred it to the immature stringbeans also on the menu. Saskatchewan, you need never starve! Charlotte Kovach brought a movie and popcorn Friday night.

THE CARLYLE BAKERY WILL BE CLOSED FOR HOLIDAYS AUGUST 19th – 24th Sorry for any inconvenience.

Wet day for Carlyle Fire Department golf tournament By Mary Moffat marymoffat@sasktel.net Carlyle Fire and Rescue held their Raise the Roof Hole in One Golf Tournament Part 2 on Saturday, August 10 despite the wet weather. Nine teams came out to the Carlyle Gold Club to help raise funds for the new Fire Hall, training facilities and Fire Equipment. All attending enjoyed a steak supper with all the fixings, along with some great prizes and raffle items. Despite their valiant efforts, no one was able to take home the $20,000 Hole in One Prize sponsored by Co-operators Gudmundson Family Insurance or the new Golf Cart Hole in One Prize sponsored by Carlyle RV & Leisure. 19082AA2 19083AA1

Alida News Submitted by Edel Cowan

Over the long weekend of August 2 to 5 most of the descendants of Philip and Velma Potapinski held a family reunion at the home farm (Kristopher Potapinski now resides there). Attending were Allan Potapinski (Gainsborough) and his daughter Dionne, Frank and Adrian Deer (Winnipeg), son James, Mandy, Hayden, Petra Potapinski (Calgary); Elaine, Kent, Nadine and Kali Potapinski (Winnipeg); Carol and Alvin Wegman, their daughter Cheryl and Shaun Jones (all of Calgary); Dale and Linda Potapinski, Kris Potapinski and Melissa Saurer, Barry and Tam Potapinski and daughters Claire and Lylah (Winnipeg); Dean and Elan Potapinski and girls Allyna and Eva (Saskatoon). During the reunion Jaye and Teresa Lemieux and girls brought over a horse for the weekend so that the young ones could have a horseback ride – they surely did enjoy having that activity to do. As well they enjoyed having fun with a “Slip and Slide” and the portable swimming pool which Uncle Kris had set up for the sunny hot daytime hours. Other games where also planned and enjoyed as well as the fireworks Saturday evening. Stopping over for a few moments on Saturday to renew acquaintance with the family were Gray and Edel Cowan. Jeff Cowan, Regina stopped at the Cowan Farm for a few moments on Saturday, August 3 and visited with his parents Gray and Edel Cowan. Then on Sunday he visited with Tim, Shelly and Ainsley Cowan at their camper in Moose Creek Regional Park. Holidaying with Ainsley Cowan over the long weekend (August 2-5) both at home in Alida and at the camper was her school classmate Eve Marsh. On Aug. 4 Gray and Edel Cowan attended the celebrations at Cannington Manor with friends where they enjoyed the music by the Forget Focal Point group. Steven and Lesa Bendtsen spent the long week-

end (August 2 to 5) holidaying, before the harvest begins, at Oak lake, MB. Edgar and Shirley Bendtsen attended a family reunion in Bengough on Aug. 2 and then they ended up in the Cypress Hills for several days holidaying before returning home Aug. 10. Sincere sympathy is extended to the Boutin relatives on the death of Victoria Boutin who passed away Aug. 3 at Moose Mountain Lodge, Carlyle at the age of 95 years. Her funeral mass was held Aug. 10 at Cantal Church with interment at the parish cemetery and luncheon at the Alida Memorial Hall. Tim, Shelly and Ainsley Cowan attended the Garth Brooks Concert in Regina on Aug. 9 returning home following the concert. Then on Saturday then travelled to Minot to visit with the Nilsen family, attend a movie and of course did a little shopping, returning to home on Sunday. Jaye and Tressa Lemieux and girls Charity, Mari and Shasta all attended the Garth Brooks Concert in Regina on Aug. 10. We did receive another much needed shower the other day even if it was only about ½ inch, it will still help the garden. And now on this Monday morning we are receiving more rain, good for the gardens and pastures, however the farmers don’t really want moisture now as they are hoping to get on with the harvesting. The harvest season is upon us now, some are in full swing combining peas, beans etc. and before one knows it everything else will be ripe and it’ll be a busy time once again. Hope everyone had a great long weekend and now we’re back on schedule with deadline for the paper – Monday mornings. So folks please keep me posted whenever you have news – simply contact me anytime on the happenings going on in and around Alida as well as within your family.

Buck-a-rama at Bear Claw Casino

9

By Mary Moffat marymoffat@sasktel.net Rodeo fans were held captive by the excitement on August 7 and 8 at the Bear Claw Casino during Buck-a-rama. With Bareback and Saddle Broncs supplied by Lawrence’s Prime Time Rodeo Stock and Bobby Stephen’s Lazy S Bulls, there were lots of world class stock for the cowboys to ride. The evening began with long rounds first, as riders fought for hard for every point, knowing that only the top two riders would make it into the short round for the prized buckles. During Intermission the local Drum group Wooden Face, from the White Bear First Nation, entertained while a local Pow Wow dancer showed his skills. Both evenings one lucky audience member and one competitor each had a chance to pull five chips from a cloth bag for the chance to win up to $500. This was followed by the final short round for Bare back, Saddle Bronc and Bull Riding.

Southeast SuperNovas U16 girls win silver at Western Canadian Championships Submitted by Steve Schultz The U16B Girls Southeast SuperNovas based out of Carlyle had quite the achievement over the August long weekend. The team, which won provincial bronze in early July and thus qualified for the U16 Western Canadian Softball Championships, continued their successful season by winning the silver medal at Westerns. The championships were held in Biggar, Saskatchewan, from August 2nd to 5th. It featured teams from Prince George and Nanaimo B.C, Edmonton and Lloydminster Alberta, Brandon and Stonewall Manitoba, along with 3 teams from Saskatchewan. The host Biggar Nationals, the Tisdale River Dogs, and the Southeast SuperNovas. The Southeast SuperNovas are composed of girls from around the southeast corner of Saskatchewan. They include Madison Mansfield from Wawota, Katelyn Desjarlais from White Bear, Kiera Rutten from Alameda, Kayzee Ferber from Lampman, Mya Waloshin and Tiana Seeman from Estevan, along with Trystan Barta, Kyla Fisher, Taris Rae, Kendra Schultz, and Erica Wilson all from Carlyle. The team also picked up a couple of girls from the Unity Panthers for their Westerns run this year. Makayla Bakken and Hunter Pewapsconias. Coaches are Larrie Rae and Autumn Barta of Carlyle and Carri-lee Rutten of Alameda.

The manager is Steve Schultz. The Novas got their first taste of Westerns in 2017 when as the Provincial Silver Medalists in 14U girls they represented Saskatchewan in North Battleford. They ended up 4th out of 9 teams in that tournament. Then last year, again as Provincial Silver Medalists in 16U, they again carried the Saskatchewan banner at Westerns. This time in Kelowna, British Columbia. Once again, they ended up 4th out of 9 teams. In qualifying for a 3rd year, the team was hungry to finally bring home a medal and their determination paid off. Southeast went 4-2 in the round robin. The Novas had a chance to finish 5-1 but lost in a slug fest to the Interlake Phillies (Stonewall) in the final game of the round robin going down 17-12. That meant a 4th place finish after the round robin, but good enough for a spot in the 3-4 game and a birth in the tournament playoffs. That 3-4 game put them up against Interlake again and this time the Novas weren’t taking prisoners. They got on the bats from the start, the pitching was spot on and they played outstanding defense. The result had them mercy Interlake 12-2 in just 4 innings. This win moved them into a semifinal versus the Prince George Thunderbirds on Monday morning. The Novas had managed to beat the T-birds early in the round robin and again they came out on fire. Great pitching, timely

(Section 81 of The Local Government Election Act, 2015)

PUBLIC NOTICE is hereby given that a poll has been granted for the by-election of:

One (1) Councillor – Town of Lampman ADVANCE POLL has been set for Thursday, August 29, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Town of Lampman office, Council Chambers, 215 Main Street, Lampman, SK.

hits and top-notch defensive play saw them win 6-2 after a regulation 7 inning game. Prince George won bronze and the Novas moved on to the final versus the Westman Magic (Brandon). Unfortunately for Southeast, that’s where the mojo went away and Westman handed the SuperNovas a 9-1 loss. The girls tried hard but just couldn’t find rhythm against a tough Manitoba pitcher. The resulting loss however still meant the Novas had won silver and the team, coaches and fans were over the moon with their success. To dominate teams from cities and big towns with thousands of more people and thus much larger pools to pick players from was quite a big deal to this team and shows not only the talent of our local ball players but just how hard they work to get there. In fact, the gold medal final was only the Novas 23rd game of the season as a team. Prince George for example, plays in excess of 90 games a year. It should also be noted that all the other provinces send “A “teams to Westerns while Saskatchewan sends “B” teams and sends “A” to nationals. A true testament to the caliber of ball being played in small town Saskatchewan. Of course, none of the success comes this year without the support the team gets. They want people to know how much they appreciate the support of generous local sponsors along with family, friends and our great communities.

Farmers happiest during harvest By Calvin Daniels You can almost feel the anticipation in the air. It is the time of year when grain and oilseed producers begin to become rather antsy for the start of the fall harvest. Recent road trips to Sandy Beach on Good Spirit Lake for a disc golf tournament, and a run to Regina for East Indian food, was a good opportunity to take note of the state of crops. While there were no swathers in the fields, a lot of crops were beginning to show the familiar golden tinge that denotes a crop is ripening so that it can soon be harvested. The trips were 10-days ago from when this article will see print, and some of the

Brought to you

crops are likely going down, marking the start of harvest. It is always a time that excites farmers, the point when they feel they will be able to harvest the crop and see a return on what is now a substantial investment in every acre planted. It is also a time, as I recall from my youth, a time of uncertainty for producers. No one can

be sure of what sort of production a field might yield on a given year until the combine begins its work. There are so many factors that go into yield, from timely moisture, to the potential impact of heat at the time a crop flowers, to heavy rains, and of course the input of fertilizer and the control of weeds which compete with crops.

The Town of Wawota is accepting applications for a Part Time Office Assistant. This position is to start in November 2019. Duties to include are accounts payable and receivable, payroll, filing, and customer inquiries. The position requires good communication and organizational skills, and the ability to work independently and as part of a team. Office experience would be an asset. The position would be a minimum of three days per week. Apply with a detailed resume including references to the Wawota Town Office. 308 Railway Avenue Box 58 Wawota SK SOG 5AO Fax (306)739-2216 Email wawota.town@sasktel.net Applications will be accepted until 12:00 pm (Noon) on September 17, 2019.

harvest. That is the $64,000 dollar question as they say, which in the case of today’s agriculture the sum is not far off what producers will be shooting for on a quarter-toquarter basis in terms of gross return. Of course while the wheels will be starting to turn, and that is always good news when harvest gets a good start

in August, there are still weeks of work ahead, and Mother Nature can throw a wrench into the gears with rain and frost yet. But at present farmers will just be happy to be out in the field reaping what they have sown, which is the heart of their business, meaning driving the combine is often when producers are happiest.

Most of the stands this year, at least on the highways travelled recently, look good although as always they are variable too. Some crops don’t look very tall, which from an SUV seat at 100 kilometres an hour doesn’t mean a lot, but one wonders if the crop perhaps needed an extra rain or two. Or, it might just be the variety, and a great yield awaits

Pies were one of the best things about Saskatchewan By Mary Mofat marymoffat@sasktel.net Two 16-year-old students from Germany joined Past District Governor Lion Dennis Feduk for two of their three weeks in Canada as part of the Youth Camp and Exchange Program sponsored by Lions International. Leon Dreier lives near Munich Germany and Felix Kerber is from near Cologne, Germany. The two young men joined Lions Club members for their very first wiener roast at Lions Park on August 7. During the first and third week of their threeweek adventure they stayed with Feduk, where they were able to experience many of the things Saskatchewan residents take for granted. They went water skiing, tubing, riding in the side by side thru the Moose Mountains, flying in a plane, swimming at the Crescent Point Leisure Complex pool, the Rusty Relics Museum, Cannington Manor, riding on a zero-turn mower, a tractor and saw the butchering set up at the Larry Brady farm,

watched “Men in Black International” at the Prairie Dog Drive-In, spent a day at Kenosee Super Slides and had a tour through the Qu’Appelle Valley. The young men did agree that one of the best things about their visit to Saskatchewan was the strawberry and rhubarb and saskatoon berry pies, made by Carlyle’s own Pieman, Dennis Feduk. While at the Camp with other exchange students at Lac Pelletier, near Swift Current, they took part in volunteer work at East End, visited Scotty the T-rex, the Cypress Hills, went zip lining, saw a moose, mule deer, and bison, rode go-carts and did an eco-tour of Grasslands Provincial Park. This camp hosted 32 youth from 13 different countries. Although it is not required that youth be related to a Lion’s Club member in order to take part in the exchange, it is interesting to note that Felix Kerber’s father and grandfather are both members of the Lion’s Club in Germany, and in fact, his father took part in the same exchange as a youth, travelling to the USA.

Vermeersch excited for new role By David Willberg Estevan Mercury Jim Vermeersch is excited to have his new role with Lions International. Vermeersch, who is a long-time member of the Estevan Lions Club and a resident of Kenosee Lake, was elected as the new district governor for Lions District 5SKS for the 2019-20 year at the international convention earlier in the summer. He’ll be responsible for a large area that stretches from the Alberta border to the west and the Manitoba border to the east, and Highway 1 to the north and the U.S. border to the south. Seventy-three clubs are in southern Saskatchewan, including many smaller rural clubs where the Lions are the only service club in the community. “Those seem to be very strong clubs, like Bateman or Climax,” said Vermeersch. “They’re not very large towns.” His first vice-district

governor is Don Morris from Cabri and the second vice is Doug Ross from Regina. Between the three of them, they will visit all 73 clubs over the course of the year. “The district governor probably does the bulk of the travelling,” said Vermeersch. “But I’m looking forward to that. I consider that the best part of the job is being able to go out and visit all of the clubs and members.” He has not been to many of the clubs in western Saskatchewan in the past two years, so he expects to spend a lot of time in the west. When he visits a club, he tries to carry the same message about the power of service and the importance of optimism. Vermeersch has been a Lion for about 26 years, and was asked a few years ago to consider becoming a district governor. He decided to jump at the opportunity a couple of years ago. “I decided it was time to step up into a larger leadership role.

I’ve made a lot of great friends being a Lion, and given the fact that I was retired, I thought it was time for me to do this.” The role is essentially the chief executive officer for Lions International in southern Saskatchewan, he said, which means he will have to handle a lot of administrative duties. He has a cabinet of Lions members from throughout the region that he has to work with, and they meet four times per year. Several people from Estevan are on his cabinet. Mike Zeleny is a zone chair, Nancy Brodeur is the cabinet treasurer and Bob Abernethy is the chair of the sight and service committee. When he joined the Lions in Carlyle in the 1990s, Vermeersch knew they were a great service club. He viewed it as a way to meet a lot of people and help the community. He is still very proud to be a Lion, and he is excited to take on this new role within the organization.
