Beloved doctor reflects on his time spent in Carlyle By Lisa McCullough For about 40 years now, Carlyle has had a visiting doctor grace its townspeople with his skills in optometry. Dr. Douglas Turnbull of Regina has been coming to Carlyle almost every week since 1980. The Carlyle optometrist office was founded by Dr. Jack Craig, followed by Dr. Don Hunter, who visited the town in the 1970's. But on Nov. 19, Turnbull’s time in Carlyle will come to an end. “Carlyle has been a significant part of my professional life as an optometrist. When I started coming to Carlyle from

Regina in 1980, we were located in the old post office building across the street, south of the Observer,” Turnbull explains. After many years though, the old post office building was sold and razed and the Optometry office was relocated to Cornerstone Plaza next to Dairy Queen for approximately 12 years, then relocated once more to its current location on Main Street. “Since late 2013 we increased our capacity by having two optometrists come together once weekly to Carlyle. This was stopped in March 2020 because of COVID

19 when only one optometrist has been coming at a time, but the office is now open two days a week, under COVID-19 protocols, to try to maintain consistent service and accessibility. Until COVID-19 is no longer a concern things will probably continue this way,” Turnbull explains. Turnbull claims that though he has driven many times in dangerous weather and collided with three deer, he still enjoyed his drives back and forth from Regina to Carlyle on an almost weekly basis. “Truthfully, I barely notice the travel time as it is peaceful I have gotten quite used to it. I have

always been genuinely happy to see everyone who has chosen to see me and it feels like I am saying goodbye to a great number of friends from not only Carlyle but from throughout the region. I have nothing but gratitude and the warmest feelings for all.” Turnbull is no longer going to be making the trip to Carlyle from Regina. He will also only be working in the Regina office once a week. That being said though, the optometrist office is still in good hands with its current doctors, Dr. Blanche Dr. Douglas Turnbull has been coming to Norbert and Dr. Kelly Carlyle once a week for 40 years, but that is Morrell. coming to an end.

Masks mandatory in indoor public settings in Carlyle By Brian Zinchuk, Local Journalism Initiative Reporter On a day when Saskatchewan posted its second highest number of new cases of COVID-19 to date, Premier Scott Moe announced on Tuesday additional public health restrictions to stem the spread of the coronavirus. They include a province-wide mask mandate, where masks are to be worn in all indoor public spaces, and reductions in the size of social gatherings in homes. More restrictions, in the hospitality industry, sports

and worship services, are likely next week. Moe said, “Our numbers in this province are not good. And the trend is in the wrong direction. We have too many new cases. We have too many in hospital. And we have too many in intensive care. And we need to do what we can to get these numbers down. “Keep in mind that these are not just numbers, they’re the furthest thing from just being numbers. Each and every one of these numbers represents a Saskatchewan person.” “They represent our

friends, our neighbors, who happen to have contracted what is a very dangerous disease. Most will recover, yes. But some are going to get sick. Some are going to end up in hospital, as we have many in there today. Some are going to die. And that’s why we need to slow the spread of this virus in our communities. And that’s why we’re taking these steps today.” “This is not a lockdown. This is a slowdown. A significant, one-month slowdown,” Moe said. The announcement came just four days after additional restrictions

were put on the time alcohol can be served and a mask mandate for communities larger than 5,000. As of 12:01 a.m. on Thursday, Saskatchewan’s new public health measures will take effect, and be in place until at least Dec. 17, when they could be removed, revised or renewed, Moe said. Masks now have to be worn in all public places in Saskatchewan. Mask-wearing in school will continue to be decided by respective school divisions. Childcare centres and daycares

will be regulated as described in the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan. The South East Cornerstone Public School Division last week announced that masks would be required in the classroom for students in Grades 4-8. Visitation to all longterm care facilities and personal care homes will be suspended, with the exception of compassionate reasons as per the current family visitation policy. Moe noted, “We now have or have had COVID presence in over 20 longterm care facilities and assisted living facilities.”

Black

Indoor private gathering sizes are being reduced. The maximum allowable gathering size for private gatherings in the home setting will decrease to five, down from 10. This includes in the home or in buildings located on private property, such as garages or sheds. Gatherings of any size beyond your immediate household are strongly discouraged at this time. “For the next four weeks as much as possible. Limit your visitors from outside your household,” Moe said.

Saskatchewan’s COVID-19 cases are from close contacts. This is also why he said it is better to go to a restaurant, because there is more room to spread out than there often is at a table at home. “Obviously, at home, we saw that you just can’t maintain the two-metre distance. You have a dining table, you have some food, when friends and family come, everyone’s

trying to maintain some distance, it was just not possible,” Shahab said. Outdoor private gatherings remain at 30 people maximum and only if physical distancing of two metres can be maintained at all times. “At this time, if you’re able to work from home, you should work with your employer to make that happen,” Moe said, acknowledging that not everyone

can. The public service, and Crown corporations, will try to do the same. Some of those public servants may be deployed in beefing up contact tracing. Moe repeatedly noted the province will be consulting with and reviewing guidelines for the hospitality industry, athletic organizations, gyms, and faith leaders of worship services.

A much-needed donation for Redvers’ fire department By Lisa McCullough COVID-19 has put a strain on many things since the beginning of 2020, including much needed services like volunteer first responders. Kingston Midstream wanted to help out two volunteer fire departments in southeastern Saskatchewan by making much-needed major donations through the Richardson Foundation. The Redvers Volunteer Fire Department was one of these departments. That department alone services several municipalities including a broad area where Kingston Midstream and Tundra Oil and Gas both have facilities. Redvers Fire Chief Brad Hutton explains that every call they receive, no matter the circumstances, requires his team to wear an extra layer of protection to protect themselves and the public from the coronavirus. “It is always in the back of your mind, so it is an extra add-on to think about,” Hutton says. Noting that the pandemic also adds a layer of complex-

ity when first responders from different areas arrive to the same scene. Recently the department has started to upgrade their self-contained breathing apparatus. (SCBA) This is a fast-changing industry with fast-changing regulations and safety requirements. “The safety of fire department volunteers is paramount and without the SCBA upgrades our department would not be able to meet safety regulations of body regulators.” Hutton said. Though the department has tried to raise funds locally, it was met with struggles due to COVID-19 restrictions. One of the main fundraising events, Lobsterfest, was expected to bring in a substantial amount of that much needed funding but had to be postponed until the new year. Kingston Midstream was a saviour to the department by donating more than $50,000 towards the new SCBA equipment, ensuring that the Redvers department can contribute its important work of saving lives across the region.

Lampman business Carnivores serving up great meat Duane and Shaula Garton opened Carnivores meat shop in Lampman, seeing a need for a business that can provide high-quality sausage and other fine meat cuts. But the support they have received in the past few weeks since their opening day Oct. 23 has surpassed their lofty expectations. “Everybody has been coming in and we’ve been busy, so it’s been great,” Shaula said. Carnivores serves various types of sausages, as well as fresh steaks, smoked chicken legs, burgers and other types of meats. Summer sausage and smoked sausage have proven to be the most popular items on their menu thus far. “We can’t seem to keep them stocked,” said Shaula. “We’re always making more. Obviously people are enjoying it, so that’s a good thing.” Cuts of sausage aren’t the only items that they have had trouble keeping in stock. The demand has been so great that they had to close early on

Nov. 7 because they ran out of products. “It was much busier than we ever anticipated. We never thought we would go through that much in our first week,” said Shaula. And while it was tough to tell their customers they had run out of food, they take it as a vote of confidence from the people in the Lampman area that the business is serving quality products. “We didn’t know if this would work here. It’s a small town, and we didn’t know how much people would come in, but everybody in town has been wonderful. Everybody has been shopping here and we’re selling way more meat than we ever thought we would,” said Shaula. The business also has a lunch special a couple of times a week, and now they have started serving cheesecakes for those who might be looking for something to go with their sausage. Cabbage rolls and home-cooked soups are also on the menu.

Oxbow Emergency Support Fund asking for donations to help children in need By Lisa McCullough Oxbow emergency support fund is working together with the community to help out families in need who have children with the children's gift outreach fundraiser. Georgia Britt is running the operation. “I know what it is like to have nothing, when I was a teenager and was old enough to take the bus in Regina, I would go help out Santa’s Anonymous, I would always sneak in extra gifts for those children,” Britt said.

With COVID-19 still plaguing communities this upcoming holiday season, Britt expects more families than usual who may need help during this difficult time. The people running this fundraiser are reaching out to the communities and churches to collect money to go shopping for the children of the families who call in asking for help. “Last year we had 16 children, we expect more this year because of COVID,” Britt says. The group gathers pyjamas, clothing and

Shaula said she and Duane have always loved cutting and serving quality meats. They did it at home for friends and family, and with Duane no longer working in the oilfield, this provided the chance to do something different. “That way we could work together, which we love doing,” said Shaula. They’re also avid hunters who have processed their own sausage meat. Shaula said they could see the need for a business such as Carnivores, especially in Lampman, because they’re going to serve the high-quality, homecooked meats made in store. People from out of town have taken notice, too. “They’re travelling in to check us out, which surprises us, but it’s good. Word is spreading fast.” It’s been a rewarding experience to be entrepreneurs. It’s been exciting to see the response from the public, and they get to do something that they love. “This wouldn’t have happened if there wasn’t our friends and family who helped us so much to get started,” said Shaula.

toys for each child on the list so none of them have to go without this holiday season. They have boxes in businesses in surrounding communities where people can donate cash or they can contact Britt herself if they so choose and make a donation via e-transfer as well. “Every donation counts no matter if it is big or small,” Britt says. All donations need to be in by December 5th so if you would like to help out this great cause you can contact Britt at 306-421-4039.

Duane and Shaula Garton are the owners of the Carnivores meat shop in Lampman. The business has been popular since it opened last month. Photo submitted

“Prayer is man’s greatest power.” - W. Clement Stone

Cabinet ministers must reflect a changing province By Murray Mandryk For about the last 40 years, politics in Saskatchewan have been framed as the transition from the social democratic governance to more conservative governance. It clearly has been all of that.  This was evident the night of the Oct. 26 that surely solidified that philosophical transfer.  What the Sask. Party did three weeks ago was secure a rare fourth-term majority government – really, the only fourth-term “unaided” majority government this province has seen since the run of Tommy Douglas’s Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (CCF).  The last NDP run under Roy Romanow and Lorne Calvert was aided and abetted by Liberals in 1999. This, by no small coincidence, was the last time Liberals were elected to the Saskatchewan legislature.  So what really happened on Oct. 26 is the transition of the Sask. Party to the status of Saskatchewan’s natural governing party – a title once bestowed upon the NDP in this province, but long lost.  One might rightly argue that the NDP had lost that title before its 1991 to 2007 run that might be attributed to not having a trusted alternative in the wake of Grant Devine Progressive Conservatives that drove the province deep into debt and faced criminal charges after.  The more pertinent point is that what we witnessed in the past four decades is change.  This is something that people in rural Saskatchewan likely recognize moreso than most.  For as often as rural life is seen from the outside as always being static, it just isn’t. For those that live on farms, it’s a reality expressed in how much further away your neighbours have gotten as farms become bigger and spread further apart. For those living in the villages, towns and smaller cities, it’s the reality of declining and changing communities.  But maybe it’s about here where we need to recognize that — if anything — we all can only expect more change in the future and that we must address that change each and every day.  The very future of this province requires to us to take on change and the problems they bring as they occur.  This takes us to last week’s cabinet shuffle and how it did — in one very real way — remind us that this is a changing province where our problems are changing as well.  It is interesting to note that many of the rural ministers in portfolios that most effect rural life didn’t change. Donna Harpauer is still the finance minister (albeit, with added title of deputy premier), David Marit is still the agriculture minister, Bronwyn Eyre is still energy minister and Jeremy Harrison is still minster responsible for the economy.  Yorkton’s Greg Ottenbreit was dropped from cabinet altogether. Jim Reiter was moved from health and Weyburn-Big Muddy’s Dustin Duncan was moved into education.  But the biggest change might have been the rural and remote health portfolio that was given to Swift Current newcomer Everett Hindley, who has been given the added and specific responsibilities of mental heath and addictions.  That the Sask. Party held onto all 29 of is rural seats and pretty much held onto is 60 per cent popular vote total from the last general election four years ago) might suggest it’s steady as she goes for the Sask. Party government.  However, it can never be business as usual for any government running this province.  We do have important issues in local hospitals and rural health care delivery will remain a major issue for some time.D  But addressing mental health is a long overdue. The same can be said for drug addiction that’s hardly just a problem in rural Saskatchewan. In fact, the economic downturn and its accompanying job losses and mental stress reveals it’s an issue everywhere.  It’s essential that governments adjust to a changing province with changing problems. That begins with cabinet.  That’s just the reality for whomever governs us.

Being on the road less travelled

Shelley Luedtke It’s a snow day. Are there more glorious words for a child? When I was very young my family lived in an Alberta hamlet; a place small in population but big in community spirit. One winter evening while we were visiting in the home of the school principal, a storm started to blow in. We were upstairs playing, blissfully unaware of what was happening outside, until we heard the older kids come running up the stairs shouting that Principal Green was cancelling school for the following day.   Since most students came in on buses, he made the decision to keep everyone home and safe.  A few years later, a move to a Saskatchewan city meant a snow day would be unlikely since

students lived within blocks of their schools and everyone would walk. But one severe winter storm ground the city to such a halt the schools were closed for four full days. It was an unexpected surprise to be sure. From Grades 1-12 we spent approximately 2,280 days in school. I liked school, I really did. But wow, those four days stand out for me. I can’t tell you what we did with the time exactly, but I remember jumping out of bed each day, running to the living room window and finding out we would be at home again. Seeing those stormy conditions continue was a sheer delight. Because I was a child.  As a youngster I wasn’t thinking about blocked roads, heavy shovelling or the risk it would be getting stuck. I didn’t think about that at all until the day my mother needed to go to the hospital. Up to that point I’d given no consideration to the people whose job it was to clear the roads so people could get where they needed to be. Thanks to them my dad got my mom to the hospital and things turned out just fine. But

before the doctor could help, a snow crew had to do their part. When the conditions outside are awful or downright dangerous, we can choose to stay sheltered while others are out doing what needs to be done: clearing roads so we have access to emergency services; ensuring that people who need to venture out can do so as safely as possible, like those who care for the sick and elderly, those who protect us, and those keeping our utilities running.  I was listening to a man admit he took full advantage of a blizzard day to “be a kid.” He said he’d never had a snow day as a child, so decided he was going to spend the day playing video games. He didn’t risk going out, nor did he put others in jeopardy. Is there a better way to spend the day?  Well, maybe. Very early in the morning, when 35 centimetres of snow meant most of us couldn’t move, a dad and his boys were out on our street. They were on foot, carrying shovels and jumping in to help out where they could. I wasn’t surprised. That is exactly the kind of thing

these guys have done before. I know, because I have seen it and I’ve been the beneficiary. And I know the same kind of thing was happening on many streets not only in our town but in every location where the storm had its way. We are just at the start of another season of all of this. Let’s not forget that before most of us even have a chance to see how bad it really is, crews are already out there taking on the enormous process of getting roadways cleared. Maybe not your street first, maybe not even within the first few hours, but they are out there doing all they can, as fast as they are able. In the meantime, take a moment to be grateful you can wait it out in a place where you are warm, safe and have plenty to do.  Instead of complaining that it isn’t being done fast enough, how about staying put and letting them do their job so that in time you can get out and do yours. It may very well be you, your child or grandparent who will be the one expressing thankfulness that the road to the hospital was cleared first. That’s my outlook.

Kisbey marks Remembrance Day with brief ceremony Submitted by Richard Krehbiel 

The Kisbey cenotaph was the site of a brief Remembrance Day ceremony on Nov. 11, commemorating Canadian men and women who gave their lives in military service to our country.  Comrade Nora Weightman of the Kisbey branch of the Royal Canadian Legion led the service and read the roll of honour listing 31 men from the Kisbey area and Pheasant Rump Nakota First Nation who were lost in the First and Second World Wars. .  Wreaths were laid by Comrade John Vouture for the Government of Canada, Mayor Kalvin Nankivell for the Village of Kisbey,

Councillor Doug Ilchuk for the Rural Municipality of Brock, John McArthur for the Pheasant Rump Nakota First Nation and president Dwayne Weightman for the Royal Canadian Legion’s Kisbey branch. Several members of the community observed the ceremony from their vehicles or in socially distanced family groups. Community members were also encouraged to view the video Arcola, Wilma, Kisbey, Pheasant Rump and District Honour Roll from the S.C. Paton Collection on YouTube and the Town of Arcola Facebook site.  Regretfully, pandemic measures prevented a fuller program, but the spirit of remembrance will carry on into coming years. 

Traditional Sioux hunting as a way of life Hunting has been a part of humanity since the beginning of time, whether you agree or disagree, love it or hate it. We have all heard arguments on both sides of caring for the animals and caring for people. Regardless of what you feel or what you believe, hunting is a huge part of the human experience. And believe it or not, it is still a way of life for many. A cabin, a woodstove and a bottle of hooch were all that was missing from a couple of hours of stories with Calvin Walker that took me back to a time long ago. The animation, passion and emotion coming out of Walker kept me on the edge my seat and reeling between laughter and tears. Although legally Walker’s Status is with the Sioux First Nation, he proudly calls himself a “half-breed cause we are all half-breeds in Canada.” Born in Moose Jaw and adopted into a white family, Walker admitted that he has lived a rough, hard life and was on the streets at 13 making his own way. Discussing his children and this present generation he shook his head saying, “These kids are too protected, and they have to deal with their (expletive), but no one is teaching them that.” He is grateful for this as it has given him the beliefs, skills and caring for others that guide his life today. Tradition, honour and respect are cornerstones in his world. Ignorance, judgement and lack of those cornerstones cause a boiling beneath the surface. Walker shared countless hunting and guiding stories that included his brother, Bonner McArthur, who sounds like another interesting character to meet. Together, they have hunted to provide much needed meat

to families on and off the reserves in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Whether families are gathering for a wake or other traditional celebration, fresh local meat is a cherished gift. Both men seem to be the type that would give you the shirt off their backs if you truly needed it, but arrogance and entitlement…not their cup of tea. At one time, Walker recalled “We would guide hard for months. Doing all the preparations, guiding, hosting, hunting and harvesting the meat took a lot of work.” He looked at his wife and asked, “Do you remember when we did that for three and a half months straight?” Candace smiled and nodded and said, “But tell her about the traditional hunting. That is important for people to know.” Walker began to talk about the way they hunt and the why behind what they do. It goes back hundreds, if not thousands of years to being grateful to be able to survive off the land. A traditional hunt is different. “You don’t go into them with quads and all this other (expletive),” he exclaimed, “you put on miles and miles. My brother and I did a lot of spot and stalk.” Walker said that where they hunt there are long lakes, big sloughs and ridges, some of the toughest terrain you could find. They are so successful because no one wants to do the work to go back in there but that is where the animals are. “We go up in the spring and I will crawl into a heard of elk and be 15 feet from a calf.” Picture the men being camouflaged and scented up to prevent being detected but also to not be seen as a threat to a herd. “Our stuff would make some people puke,” he laughed. Now that is a forgotten skill. “You never shoot in the boiler room,” he said and then had to explain no gut shots. Always

shooting the head or neck will make for a clean kill with no suffering and keep the meat fresh as you drain all the blood out before you begin to harvest. “There is not one part of the animal that is not used,” he continued. “We save and clean the intestines for sausage and keep all the organs for those who enjoy tripe soup. There are so many nutrients in the organ meats.” Walker demonstrated how he field dressed and deboned the animal right where it was shot and then carried everything back wrapped in the hide leaving only the blood behind. “You use the brain for tanning the hides and you will always have people who need each part of the animal. It didn’t matter if we were miles into the bush, my brother and I would haul it all back in.” He laughed as he said, “We were

young and strong back then.” As with traditional hunting, there is much preparation that results in a kill, but Walker said, “When I go out for a hunt, I am coming back with something.” Learning a great deal about hunting from Norman Paul, Walker said “Now there was a man who knew about hunting.” Walking for miles, tracking, bushwhacking and going back for days to figure out the animal’s patterns was all part of the hunt. Between his time with Norman and years clearing bush for cutlines with seismic crews, Walker knows the park and the entire surrounding lands like the back of his hand. Walker is not naïve to the reality of today’s generation, both white and First Nation, who do not respect people or property and take no

responsibility for their actions. He admits that every hunter at one point in their long lives has done something “illegal” depending on the situation they are faced with in the field, but these are not common practice and

should never become common. He was disgusted as he described big game tournaments where heads and racks are harvested, and animals are left to rot. A6 » LONG TIME

Happy Nun Café wins Tourism Saskatchewan Award By Lisa McCullough The Happy Nun Café in Forget won the Business of the Year Award for under 20 employees from Tourism Saskatchewan on Nov. 10. This award was announced via a Facebook live event due to COVID-19, and since Tourism Saskatchewan was unable to hold the actual gala in April. According to the Tourism Sas-

katchewan website, nearly 90 nominations were received in the 13 award categories that acknowledge quality in marketing, service, business practices, Indigenous tourism, human resource development and other areas. “This was a welcome happy moment for us with everything go on in the world,” states Gayla Gilbertson, owner of the Happy Nun Café . Weyburn Tourism

« A5 “That is just a bloody waste. I have long grown out of hunting for the biggest animal. When you have 20 families to feed, you get calves, dry cows and small spikes so the meat is delicious. The older generation just can’t chew the tough meat.” Walker and McArthur look at the big picture whenever they are hunting big game and know the value of the hundreds of pounds of meat they have after a shoot. “How long does it take you to eat 400 pounds of meat? And if you got the balls to shoot it, you got the balls to take care of the whole animal and give it to some families who need it if you don’t want it.” Exasperated he said, “You never leave the meat, ever.”

Some funny stories included details of their guiding days where rich city folk came out for a big hunt. Picturing a gentleman from B.C. with a 416 that was taller than he was, and the look on Walker and McArthur’s faces when he admitted he had not ever shot or sighted in the gun was hilarious, as was imagining Walker picking the man up off the ground even after changing to a smaller gun. He still scoped himself even with instruction, leaving with a kill and bruising around the eye. “We led one guy right to a bull, and he fired five shots from 50 yards and missed,” Walker marveled and shook his head as he said, “So I just left

approached the café to ask they were able to nominate them and helped them through the submission process to be entered for this award. “We appreciate all the friends of the Nun, honestly it is those people that brought us provincial attention by spreading the word about us, it is neat to find out that so many people are aware of us all over the province,” Gilbertson said.

The Happy Nun Café in Forget has been recognized by Tourism Saskatchewan. Photo submitted

Long-time hunter has lots of stories to share him there in the bush.” He made it out and they went back and tracked the animal again the next day with a successful shoot. So many stories like this had us in stiches. Although he hunts mainly on reserve land at the west side of Moose Mountain Provincial Park, he was adamant that hunters actually contact landowners to get permission. Walker could not count the number of times that he and his brother had done all the work to prepare for a hunt only to have someone drive into the area, onto the land, disturb their space and drive off. When he goes up Norquay, Hudson Bay, Porcupine Plain and all those places up north, Walker

buys a tag like anyone else and when he finds an area he wants to hunt he will get permission or just go deep into the forest. Farmers have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on their crops and that needs to be respected. Unfortunately, over the years, Walker recalled some harassing situations with the Department of Natural Resources officers, but he knows the laws and his rights. He has licences for what he needs to, when and where he needs to. What set him off was the unnecessary, constant mistrust of him when there are other very important issues the conservation officers could address. His wife nodded

20113ge0

sadly as he recalled being stopped while fishing four times in one day. In saying that, he appreciates the conservation officers for keeping people in check who are disrespectful and unsafe to others. “What I would like to say in all of this is that I would like things to go back to the way it was,” Walker started. “Like years ago, you could not even drive into a field. The only time you could drive in was to retrieve. It destroys your hunt when you have walked in onehalf mile and are hunkered in waiting for game and someone comes driving in the field with their truck. It is pretty disheartening when you have spent so much time and effort and it is gone.”

Walker knows tonnes of other hunters who have experienced the same thing. Bartering, trading meats for the benefit of everyone and respecting all aspects of hunting are still alive and well in some people and Walker wants everyone to get back to that tradition. Ironically, an article written by Daniel P. Modaff in 2004, states “As the traditional Sioux attempted to manage the challenges of their daily lives, they drew strength from four virtues that every member of the tribe aspired to achieve: bravery, generosity, fortitude, and wisdom.” The irony? Those virtues live in Walker today.

Carlyle Cougars ventured to Wawota to face the Flyers Submitted by Nicole Currie The Carlyle Cougars headed to battle the Flyers last Saturday and although it wasn’t the outcome they were looking for, there were still some positives from the game. The Flyers struck first, scoring 5:55 into the period, followed by another quick one 20 seconds later. The game was back and forth and thanks to a goal from Ben Turgeon, with help from Marc Shaw and Ben Johnstone, the Cougars were on the board with just 55 seconds left in the first. Carlyle got into some penalty trouble in the second that let the Flyers score two power play goals and lead the game by a score of 4-1. The shots were 28 for the Flyers and 26 for the Cougars at the end of the second, with Brandon Glasser making many stellar saves for the Cougars. There was life back for the Cougars as they weren’t looking to go down easy. With 13 minutes gone in the third period, Johnstone scored unassisted followed by Ty Currie with help from Glasser half a minute later. With just five minutes left, it’s a one-goal game and the momentum has shifted. It was the last minute when the Flyers scored an empty net goal that sealed the final score, 5-3 for the Flyers. This weekend, the Cougars host the Kipling/Windthorst Oil Kings Friday, night and

head back to Kipling on Saturday. If you are looking to attend either game, please text 306577-8915 to book your spot. • • • In other Big Six happenings, the Bienfait Coalers continued their early season dominance of the west division in the league. Fresh off of an opening weekend sweep of the Yellow Grass Wheat Kings, the Coalers routed the Arcola-Kisbey Combines twice last weekend: 9-4 on Nov. 13 in Arcola and 17-2 the following night in Bienfait. Also on Nov. 13, the Wheat Kings defeated the Midale Mustangs 5-2 in Yellow Grass.

Good Luck This Hunting Season Conserving and keeping wildlife and people safe By Deb Andrew As with many things in life, there are often two sides to every story. When it comes to wildlife, specifically hunting, trapping and fishing, this is no exception. Conservation officers (CO) are often on both sides of that fence in that they appreciate the many forms of harvesting animals for human use and yet work to keep this a sustainable, safe practice for years to come. An enlightening interview with CO Lindsey Leko from Weyburn revealed this year’s hunting and fishing issues as well as details about the job itself. Being employed in this position since 1997, Leko has seen trends over the years and has a good handle on what is going on in the southeast corner of Saskatchewan. As conservation officers are deemed essential service workers, COVID has not changed or limited their roles much. They are still

expected to be out in the field and respond to tips using all distancing and other COVID regulations. “What has affected hunting drastically is the border closures,” Leko explained. “Usually we see a huge influx of nonresident hunters coming to hunt our upland birds and waterfowl. Without those numbers this year, we were not as busy.” Although there has not been an official wildlife count for big game by the wildlife branch of Sask. Environment since 2017, there are whitetail counts and spotlight counts regularly. Ongoing conversations with various wildlife groups keep the province informed and there is an app people can use to plot locations of wildlife they see. “A new thing this year is going to be a mandatory hunter harvest which will allow wildlife managers to accurately know what was taken this year and to predict

or forecast what we will do in the future,” Lindsey said. “All hunters will be reminded through their PAL account and hopefully all will participate so we know whether or not they just hung their tags on the Christmas tree this year. Without this type of help, there is no way to even estimate populations.” “The number of people applying for the big game draw are increasing every year, so I would think that would indicate we have new hunters each year which is great, but I have seen a dramatic change over the years.” Officer Leko described the open day of whitetail season, “It would be common to see a whole family out together on a Tuesday, hunting deer that first day. That was a pastime that was done as a family and it was carried down generation to generation. I think a lot of people relied on the meat, but I don’t see that as much

anymore.” He wondered out loud about the mindset of this generation being very different towards hunting and animals, and said he has observed personally the younger hunters are more rural based rather than from the cities. “There are still lots of kids taking the Hunter’s Safety course. Now that it is available online, more have access to it, although I still believe there is nothing like learning in a small group, classroom setting where they experience more hands on.” These numbers increase every year as well. When asked the top violations or issues they deal with most during hunting season, it was disheartening to hear that conservation officers still get numerous calls about conflict between landowner and hunter. “In many of the zones, like around Weyburn, you cannot drive onto a farmer’s land without written permis-

sion whether it is posted or not,” officer Leko explained. “In other areas, if the land is not adequately posted or not posted properly, hunters have implied right of access. This means the hunter has access until the landowner tells them to leave. But if the land is posted properly, hunters are not allowed on it.” The officers in this area also find that some hunters are still driving with a loaded firearm in their vehicles despite the laws and terrible risks involved. Often, they have had hunters get into a bluff and not realize there is a residence within 6070 metres of their position, which is not following regulation. This is also a serious violation for obvious reasons. Finally, Leko described a practice that has been driving a wedge between landowners and hunters that they are seeing more and more of, which is hunters dumping the parts of their kill they do not want on land that does not belong to them. “People don’t seem to realize that is littering. Under the Environmental Management Protection Act, the disposing of waste on someone else’s or on crown land carries a penalty of $580,” Leko explained. The argument is that coyotes and other scavengers will clean it up, but as Leko said, “people have to stop and think about the farmers and what they want. None of them want the scavengers in or near their yard, their livestock,

their pets or family. The proper way to dispose of it is to double/triple bag it and take it home to put in your regular household garbage.” If you have permission from the landowner to leave it far out in the bush or in what they call a ‘bone yard’ that is great, but it gets back to respect of and communication with the landowners. If you have any questions with regard to hunting rules you can Google many questions and it will take you to Saskatchewan’s government website. They have a hunting and fishing page where you can download your own copy of the hunting guide, get information on chronic wasting disease, First Nation Hunting rights information and so much more. There is also an inquiry line you can call: 1-800-567-4224 Leko left with one request to share with readers. “We really need the public’s help in reporting these violations. Often times I will go check on anglers at the fishing shack in July and have someone say ‘where were you yesterday? There was a guy here with 15 walleye’ and my question is always, ‘why didn’t you call?” He admitted they have many officers but there is a very large area that they cover and their mandate as conservation officers is very diverse. “They will get my butt out of bed at 1 a.m. on a TIPP call and I will deal with it,” CO Leko promised. “An officer not calling back should never happen and I am not aware of it ever happening with the officers we have here in the southeast. We get out there and investigate it as soon as possible but we need as much information as they can possibly gather. A license plate number is the best information, and I can take it from there. I don’t need their involvement or to have them come to court most of the time.” He ended the interview with the importance of the public knowing that the conservation officers cannot take care of abuses if they do not know they are happening, so he greatly appreciates those who report infractions when they see them.

How to cope with season affective disorder By Dr. Wendy Davis of the Harmony Health Clinic    Symptoms of seasonal affective disorder include sadness, moodiness, low motivation and energy and excessive need for sleep.  Some of the triggers for this condition are history of depression or a family history of depression or bi-polar disorder, irregular sleep patterns, lack of sunlight, chronic stress, and low levels of Vitamin D, poor diet, poor digestion and food sensitivities.  Phew… it’s a wonder more people don’t suffer from this condition as many of us have some of these underlying issues.  So what can we do to minimize the risk or help treat the symptoms of this common seasonal complaint?  Diet: Increase your intake of whole foods (fruits, vegetables, whole grains) and minimize processed grains and sugars (anything in a package with a LONG list of ingredients).  Green tea, dark chocolate and omega 3 rich fish have all been shown to help reduce inflammation and improve moods. 

Supplements: Vitamin D: This is called the sunshine vitamin and many people suffering with SAD have been shown to have low levels of this important vitamin. Taking this vitamin in supplement form between October and April is crucial for anyone suffering with SAD.  Omega 3 oils: Foods rich in omega 3 include salmon, cod liver oil, herring, sardines, anchovies, mackerel, hemp, chia and flax seeds. However, it is often useful to get a good quality omega 3 fish oil in a liquid or capsule form in order to improve your mental outlook.  Probiotics: The connection between the gut and the brain has become more widely accepted and so taking a good quality probiotic daily can go a long way to improving both your mental and digestive health.  Lifestyle:  Sleep: Prioritizing good sleeping habits and supporting your natural circadian rhythms is critical for SAD management. Make sure that you have a comfortable bed, bedding, and pillows. Create a safe sanctuary in your bedroom. Develop a regular relaxing nighttime routine and

limit all screens 30 minutes before you go to bed. Gratitude: Having regular gratitude, prayer or spiritual practices are some of the best ways to improve your mood and reduce symptoms of SAD. Begin your morning by counting the blessings in your life. Stop throughout the day to appreciate three little things that make you happy, and finish

your day writing down three things you are grateful for. Movement: When people are depressed getting out and exercising is not an easy task, but starting slowly, even 10 minutes of walking a day, has been shown to have powerful mood enhancing benefits.  Endorphins, those feel good chemicals in our brains, are stimulated when

we move, so get out for a short walk, dance to your favorite song, climb the stairs in your house a few extra times a day, park a bit further away from the grocery store or do a YouTube yoga class. I hope that this information has been helpful.  If you have questions please reach out to me at www.drdavisnd. ca or 306-224-0012. 

Maryfleld Sunrise Villa news Submitted by Betty Walker and Janet Mark    Last week brought rain, ice and snow along with cooler temperatures but for us inside looking out, we were warm and comfy. It was beautiful; each little blade of grass looked like it was made of glass.  On Remembrance Day, Charlotte Kovach conducted a very appropriate and meaningful service followed by a sing song with Judy Skiba at the piano. We sang from cover to cover all the songs that were popular during the war from a booklet that Judy

made. It brought back a lot of memories. Wednesday evening brought our usual hymn sing and story time led by Mary Thiessen and her guitar.  Friday night we watched a movie and had popcorn and a drink, all compliments of Charlotte Kovach.  As well during the week we had Bingo, card Bingo and floor curling, and on Friday, a new activity of exercises with Marlee Swallow who will soon have us whipped into shape.  We welcomed a new resident, Freda Fletcher of

Moosomin. Please make yourself known to her. Get well wishes go out to Clifford Sheane, who is in hospital. We miss him and hope he will be back soon. Visitors last week are as follows: Kornelia Ens, Steven Thiessen, Richard and Sharon Beutler, Verla Smith, Lydia and Ward Frazer, Dale and Janet Thiessen, Irene Schmidt, Marion Eccles,  Remi and Gwen Donais, Vaughn Eccles, Charlotte Kovach, April Geiger, Brent Ketcheson, Val Puskas, and Barry and Glenda Toms. Thank you for the company.

out supper. They served 107 pre-ordered suppers that were picked up at the Alida Hall, starting at 5 p.m. It was reported that everything ran very smoothly and all was cleaned up and workers were home again by 7 p.m. It was a very delicious supper, complete with pumpkin pie. Great work ladies. I can hardly wait until the next one will be held. So folks, keep your eyes and ears open for the next “Awesome” take-out supper – it may not be turkey, but something else. Only time will tell.     Please remember folks, keep me posted whenever you have news – simply contact me anytime on the happenings that are going on in and around Alida as well as within your own family circle.

Cougar Corner – A look at upcoming school activities Student-led conferencing at Gordon F. Kells High School occurs Nov. 25 and 26, from 5-8 p.m.   A new reporting system called EDSBY has been rolled out for parents to use in order to see students’ attendance and marks. Its purpose is to improve electronic communication between school and home. There is no substitute, however, for talking with a student’s teacher(s).   What we want is for all parents to be able to check in on attendance, assessments and to get information about what is going on in the school. If something doesn’t sound right to you, please arrange for a conference with the teacher. They can be emailed to arrange for a conference time.  As always, pan-

demic responses by our school are constantly under review. Restrictions at this time have been loosened in terms of student cohorts being able to engage in more sporting activities during physical education classes and allowing intramurals at noon hour. As the weather gets colder, we know this will be a great thing for kids. Otherwise, your school is prepared for anything that comes its way during this pandemic. Our students have been doing a great job of adjusting to the new routines and we would like to acknowledge the support of our community.    You can order online picture packages by following the instructions in your package. Picture retake day was Nov. 19.  

Though we were unable to have a live Remembrance Day program this year, the students watched a recorded GFK Remembrance Day program, which included student readings and videos. Students also put up Remembrance Day bulletin board and images in the GFK hallways. The band will be doing the annual fruit and cookie dough sale, but the company isn’t doing anything this fall. The band students plan to start selling in January with delivery in March. Thank you for your continued support of the band program in Carlyle.   All your school information can be found on the GFK website on the Southeast Cornerstone School Division website under the “schools” tab.
