Young country artist Morgan Robertson is on the rise By Olivia Grandy At just 18, Morgan Robertson is quickly gaining momentum in her music career. Recently, she received the 2021 Saskatchewan Country Music Association (SCMA) Youth Development Bursary and won a songwriting competition based in Nashville. Hailing from Carlyle, Robertson spoke to the Mercury about these achievements and how essential local venues are to musicians in the area. Robertson has played and performed music for over 10 years, beginning with the fiddle and eventually expanding to playing guitar, singing and songwriting. In the past, she has performed across the southeast with the youth vocal fiddle group Focal Point. About five years ago, Robertson began taking singing and songwriting seriously. Since then, she has fostered her individual performing skills. Notably, she performed at the Bow Valley Jambo-

ree in 2019 and opened for Tyler Lewis at the Happy Nun Café in Forget in 2020. Robertson realized that songwriting was something she could peruse after performing an original song at a music camp and receiving a very positive response. “I thought, oh my gosh, I’m actually writing stuff that people can relate to, and I’m actually doing good at this. Maybe this is something that I want to keep doing. I think that was probably a pretty big moment.” Robertson’s recent success emerged through her talent and the opportunities created by the excellent support system for local musicians in the province. She became a part of the SCMA about a year and a half ago. As a member, she receives emails about gigs and opportunities that are available. In this way, she received the opportunity to apply for the Youth Development Bursary. Additionally, she spoke about how supported she feels by the

Happy Nun Café, a lively venue that creates space for local musicians. The business won Music Venue of the Year at the recent SCMA Awards. “The Happy Nun has been amazing to me. They’ve done a lot for me and many, many, other local artists. They’ve given a lot of people some really great opportunities. They’ve kept live music going through the pandemic, which is great because it hasn’t been easy to do. Local venues are very important for the music industry, and I’m very happy and grateful to feel that the Happy Nun has my back.” Along with her local success, her original song Goodbye Train was selected in a competition run by Henhouse Studio, based in Nashville. Robertson sent in a voice memo of the song and received the opportunity to create a polished recording. She recorded her vocal track at SoulSound Recording Studio in Regina to a guitar track that was sent to her by Hen-

Carlyle-based musician Morgan Robertson. Photo courtesy of Starr Mercer Photography. house Studio. She looks forward to receiving the finished song with complete production. “I sent in the song that I thought had the most potential for something that I couldn’t do on my own. They’re all amazing musicians. They are very talented, so I’m super excited for the finished project because it’s going to be awesome to

see what I can do with the help of others.” In the future, Robertson plans to obtain her red seal as an electrician while continuing to grow her musical career. She aspires to spend time in Nashville after completing her apprenticeship. Robertson would advise someone starting out in songwriting to “write from your heart. It’s not

always the easiest to just let out your emotions, but if you just write what you’re feeling, you’ll get places eventually.” Currently, Robertson shares covers and original songs on her Instagram page, @ morgan.r.music. You can find updates on the goings-on of her music career and get access to any new music there.

Cornerstone board hears online learning presentation If this pandemic and its resulting demands had happened 10 years ago, it would have been a huge challenge for the South East Cornerstone Public School Division’s instructional technology team to answer the call for assistance. But in 2020, it appeared to be just another difficult problem that could be resolved with the right team of technical expertise and equipment in place. The co-ordinator of that four-member SECPSD team, Jeff Walters, provided some insights into the responses that were implemented in 2020 and have since rolled out into 2021. There was a need to keep educating 8,300 students in the public school system in southeast Saskatchewan amidst an evolving environment that included school lockdowns, a partial return to classrooms, more shutdowns, a full return to classes and a continual demand to maintain a strong system of providing education materials. This all had to be delivered by education professionals and school administration teams. Walters provided background information to the SECPSD board members who were once again meeting in an online manner on Wednesday for their monthly open business session. The one-hour presentation included video highlights as well as his verbal and written submissions. Instructional tech, he noted is there to provide vi-

sion and leadership in educational technologies. “We have to make sure everything is working with education technology,” he told the trustees. The team and its resources are there to support the delivery of the curriculum and technology to the classroom while also collaborating with teachers and students and training new teachers in using grade books and other practices. They also participate in the MySchoolSask provincial student information system. Supplemental learning in 2020 and into 2021 has absorbed a lot of team time and resources, but with some satisfaction in the process and results. As Walters pointed out, “we had an opportunity that came about in a strange way to develop projects for students and we didn’t have a road map.” But stretching the education technical file during this pandemic has led to teams of learners, leaders, families, analysts, collaborators, designers and facilitators, the report noted. Continued support for a quick expansion of the Cyber Stone online schooling system was also part of the mandate to include kindergarten to Grade 9 learning opportunities besides high school classes. The team delved deeper into technology integration to redefine traditional tasks on one platform to serve teaching staff, students and families.

The Edsby program has hosted this expansion so that student conferences, online report cards, and other platforms can be implemented and used efficiently. “If we can’t do face-toface learning then we have online school teams, staff services and we have set up our own road map,” Walters said. This is made possible by providing a digital hub and training for over 500 teachers who come bearing a lot of questions and in need of technical supports on top of the student and family needs. With collaboration with the division’s technical leader Brian Belinsky, there have been loan outs of 984 lap top computers to students who need them for complete online capabilities. “We experienced some hiccups, but nothing daunting,” Walters said. Creating professional learning communities, instructional technology teams, assistance to administration teams, library technicians and teacher collaboration efforts … all became part of the job description. “Getting information out to the people who need it,” Walters added. The Edsby platform provides space for recording and reporting on student achievement. Trustee Jim Vermeersch asked Walters “what has been your biggest roadblock?” Walters replied that it was deciding what platforms to use for various services and then ramping them up to support training for ev-

But now, we’re able to meet the challenges when given a problem and we can say, ‘here, this is how we can solve it.’” Assisting the administrators in posting messages to connect with families has been another side of the team’s work along with the library tech support and teacher refresher lessons and reminders. New additions to the system so far this year have included accounts and attendance periods, Gradebook and teacher, parent, student achievement messaging. Edsby, it turns out, has allowed teachers to coach and support students and families who can log in any time and “it has been easier on the teacher end of things,”

Walters added. Successful examples of how the online system has allowed students to continue to work together as well as individually from remote locations were used in the video presentations that accompanied Walters’ remarks. “It’s been a busy, challenging year but we’re doing things we just used to talk about,” said Walters. “We keep in mind that all of what you’ve shared, your support work was happening at the same time. Your teams work has been instrumental to the success of on-line learning,” said Lynn Little, the division’s director of education. Walters was thanked by chairwoman Audrey Trombley. She was directing the online proceedings from the division’s central office conference room in Weyburn.

Spray park under construction Now that the weather is warming up, the construction has started on the new spray park, which will be located at the end of Main Street in Centennial Park.

It’s time to bid on a bottle of wine for the Kipling pool By Laura Kish The online version of the Kipling Swimming Pool’s Mystery Wine Auction starts next week. “The idea for this fundraiser came about after looking at all the different ways we have done fundraising in the past that we can’t now during the pandemic,” said Kipling Leisure Services manager Susan Hengen. “We know we can’t have any events in person,” explains Hengen. “We can’t have anything that centres around

food. Those are the ageold successful events that we’ve done in the past.” They were looking into something unique that hasn’t been done in the community so the group settled on an online wine auction. “This may appeal to a different crowd,” says Hengen. “Right now, with all the restrictions, inperson events can’t happen unless there’s a very small gathering,” says Hengen. “Moving forward, when we come out of the pandemic, we hope to hold this as

One of the many bottles of wine up for auction for the Kipling Swimming Pool.

an in-person evening event.” “We’ve had some good feedback on interest in this type of fundraiser,” explains Hengen. “We’ve also had good feedback on donations.” As of Tuesday, there were over 50 bottles of wine already donated. To get in on the action of bidding on a bottle, click Like on the Kipling & District Swimming Pool Facebook page or Like the event itself. Then click on ‘going’ to the auction. Listed is a description on each and every bottle of wine, although you won’t know exactly what you bought until you have the winning bid. The type of wine remains a mystery. The auction starts on May 3 at 9 a.m. and goes until May 5 at 9 p.m. There’s only one stipulation at this auction – bidders must be 19 years of age or older to bid on a bottle of wine. The minimum bid is $20, as the purchase price in some cases is much higher than that. Get ready to bid on some very unique bottles of wine. “If you find you’re interested in any keep going back and checking to see if anyone has outbid you,” said Hengen. Money raised will go towards the day-to-day operations of the Kipling Swimming Pool’s 2021 season.

“The pandemic has added a lot of increased expenses in terms of the cleaning supplies, additional staff,” said Hengen. “Last year our capacity limit was decreased and I don’t anticipate that we’ll be wide open this year either. I’m sure there will be some capacity restrictions this year as well.” “Our numbers might be slightly reduced with

swimming lessons. In order to meet the needs of our users requiring swimming lessons, we have added one to two instructors this season so that adds to our expenses too.” “We don’t want to turn kids away from swimming lessons…we want all kids to have that experience.” Hengen states that they have had a lot of

interest for swimming lessons to date, lots of inquiries and some registrations already. “We’re very grateful to all who have donated towards our fundraiser,” says Hengen as she hopes for a great turnout as well. So come the morning of May 3, bid on one or more bottles – whatever your tastebuds desire.

He chose the last day of April for Honesty Day as a counterpoint to the pranks that accompany April Fool’s Day. It also happens to be the anniversary of George Washington’s first inauguration—a president lauded for his honesty.  Government officials don’t fare nearly as well in current surveys. Nurses are at the top of occupations perceived as most honest while lobbyists and politicians sit at the bottom. Of course, painting entire occupations with broad strokes isn’t representative of all individuals within the category. It is our encounters and the overall scrutiny that forms those perceptions.   Ultimately though, we would hope the desire to be honest, or holding at bay the temptation toward dishonesty, has less to do with career and more to do with character.   So on the last day of April, we are encouraged to be truthful in all we do, whether conducting business, speaking with others, or dealing with children. It seems to me there is a better goal to shoot for. Yes, we can celebrate the occasion with a day-long emphasis on truth, or we could embrace the concept of living honestly every day. That’s my outlook.  5252-354-603 :enohP

If you came across a lost wallet, what would you do? Leave it, keep it, check for identification, see if it held any money, find somewhere to turn it in? Apparently, it depends on where you live, if the results of a social experiment are correct.  A team of researchers dropped 17,000 wallets in banks, theaters, museums, hotels and post offices in 355 cities across 40 different countries to see what people might do. Results indicate people in Switzerland were the most honest in returning the wallets. Canada didn’t make the top tier, but I will point out that none of the seven cities surveyed were in Saskatchewan. I’m sure it would have made a difference, right?  People say honesty is one of the most desired qualities they seek in a partner, friend or colleague, yet we’ve become so cynical we don’t seem to expect it

of it, but he insisted. His self-imposed penalty forced a playoff which Jones lost. The world of sports has other famous examples where coaches or athletes have called out their own mistakes or corrected a call, even when it cost a game, a match or championship. They are often heralded as heroes for doing so, given what was on the line. They certainly make for teachable moments, but shouldn’t doing the right thing just be expected?   An elderly man walked into a department store and handed the manager an envelope containing a note and $100. The note explained that more than 60 years earlier, he had stolen about $25 from the store and now wanted to pay it back with interest. Reaction to his story was heartwarming and yet heartbreaking at the same time, particularly when it was remarked, “honest people, they are a different breed.”  Really? Is honesty so rare that honest people are a different breed? That must be why those seeking to create observances on every day in the calendar year have declared April 30 to be Honesty Day. It was initiated by M. Hirsch Goldberg, a former Maryland press secretary and author. Subscription Rates:

any longer. At the very least we have created a sliding scale on which we place statements and rationalize lies to suggest one isn’t as bad as another. To further distance ourselves from confronting lying, we have created alternate vocabulary for it and then invoke explanations like misinformation, embellishment or someone simply being economical with the truth. Regardless of how we might want to downplay the consequences, truth matters. Bobby Jones was the most successful amateur golfer to compete at a national and international level. He is considered one of the most influential individuals in the history of the sport. Titles and championships aside, there is a moment in his career that established Jones as the ultimate sportsman and one of the most honest people in the world.  It was the 1925 U.S. Open. On the 11th hole, Jones found himself in the rough. As he prepared for his shot, the head of his club brushed the grass and caused a slight movement of the ball. He then took his shot but told officials and his playing partner that he had violated Rule 18 since the grass caused a slight movement to the ball. They all tried to talk him out

It was another bad week for COVID-19 in Saskatchewan, but things may be looking up on a couple of economic fronts. Things actually may even be looking up on the COVID-19 front as well, although no one — including the Saskatchewan Party government — seems to know for certain. The good COVID-19 news is vaccinations in Saskatchewan surpassed 400,000 shots last week. Premier Scott Moe is right: vaccines are our best chance to get out of this pandemic mess. The less-than-good-news, however, is Regina intensive care units remain full and the new variants are spreading to Saskatoon and elsewhere. To their credit, Moe and Health Minister Paul Merriman delivered a stronger message to anti-mask, anti-lockdown rallies in cities and smaller centres like Maple Creek, stating that any such gatherings break public health orders and slow down our ability to get through this pandemic. But how he can more quickly get through all of this as we administer the first shot to everyone during the coming months continues to be a huge source of debate and contention. While both Merriman and Moe have scolded the more outlandish behaviour of the anti-mask crowd — including their picketing of the Regina General Hospital where people were fighting for their lives — they seem reluctant to advocate more policing and seem unwilling to introduce harsher fines for those breaking public health orders. It’s hard not to suspect that this is because the government fears the backlash of the extreme right, or maybe even a few more moderates who share the frustration over lockdowns. It remains a bit of mystery as to what the government’s metrics are. Asked last week what level of daily cases or percentage of people vaccinated in the province it would take to one day re-open Saskatchewan, Moe was shy on specifics. One gets the distinct impression that the Saskatchewan Premier would surely love to be talking about most anything else. But the good news for Moe is that, recently, there have been some other positive things to talk about. Accompanying COVID-19 has been a loss of jobs partly due to the drastic fall in oil, but agriculture has remained steady. That industry has recently been awarded with some positive announcements. Viterra unveilled a proposal for the world’s largest canola crushing facility to be built in Regina. Its plan is for a 2.5 million-tonne processing facility followed an announcement by Cargill for a similar $350 million canola crushing plant for Regina, capable of processing one million tonnes a year. These announcements follow the March news by Richardson International Ltd. that it was doubling its canola crushing capacity in Yorkton to 2.2 tonnes per year. Toss in the opening of the $32 million North American Helium Inc. plant near Battle Creek in the province’s southwest corner and there is suddenly a smattering of good news amidst all the COVID-19 gloom and doom. While the Sask. Party government does sit on a comfortable majority in the legislature, it’s clear that its popularity has taken a beating since the October election. It needs to get back on track and the same can be said for an entire province also bogged down in this pandemic. At this point, we’ll all take any good news we can get.

A bench for the Greens The family of John and Irene Green have proudly donated a memoriam bench to the Carlyle Golf Club. Daughters Pam, Cindy and Crystal are well aware of their parents love of the game of golf, as are their six granddaughters and two grandsons. It will be placed beside the gazebo originally built in memory of John on the fifth hole tee off box. Pictured are, Cindy’s husband Don Perron along with their daughter Kiana.

Crime Watch network important for law enforcement Law enforcement agencies are promoting the importance of the Saskatchewan Crime Watch Advisory Network (SCWAN).   Created in 2019, the network allows people to be personally notified of crimes in their local area and directly assist police in keeping the community safe. The RCMP has partnered with the Saskatchewan Crime Watch Advisory Network in southern Saskatchewan in a project that has been very successful thanks to members of the public.  

The concept of the project is simple: notify the public of crimes in their area and allow them to be the eyes and ears of the police. When your local detachment becomes aware of a crime, they are able to notify members of the network through their phones or computers of details which can be used to help the police by phoning in tips. As described by the SCWAN website – “Imagine someone is spotted breaking into a cottage or a home. The witness calls 911 to report

the crime and describe the suspect’s vehicle. Police go to the scene, but the suspect is often gone. Now, with a Saskatchewan Crime Watch advisory sent directly from the RCMP, the description of the suspect’s vehicle can be immediately sent to hundreds, if not thousands, of people in the area. “People who receive the advisory can call police when they see the vehicle. This gives the police a better chance of catching the offender(s), sooner.”  Together the members

of our communities across southern Saskatchewan are able to provide indispensable help to police services as they keep an eye out for criminal activity in their area.    "We have been able to recover stolen property, lay charges, resolve suspicious persons complaints and make the public more aware of what is happening in their communities," said Assistant Commissioner Mark Fisher, the former Commanding Officer of the Saskatchewan RCMP. "We ask that everyone in the province join the

network, so we can expand its reach and give more people an additional tool to help us solve crime." Signing up for the Saskatchewan Crime Watch Advisory Network is easy and can be done from any phone or computer by visiting www. saskcrimewatch.ca and following the instructions on your screen.   Carlyle RCMP would like to thank its partners and anyone who has joined the network to help make the community a safer place to live. 21052GE0

Katie’s K9 Training

Fostering dogs is rewarding for Teresa Valentine By Laura Kish Teresa Valentine of Carlyle has been rescuing and fostering dogs for over six years after being introduced to Bright Eyes Dog Rescue (BEDR), a registered non-profit organization based out of Regina. Valentine was introduced to Bright Eyes by Katie Mryglod and has been blessed and grateful ever since. She says it’s truly a wonderful group of people to be working with. Bright Eyes Dog Rescue was founded in January 2010, based on a dream to offer something for dogs that through no fault of their own were either abandoned, abused, feral, injured or surrendered and in need of loving and caring homes. As the 100 per cent volunteer-based membership has grown, so too has the commitment to these precious dogs. BEDR is delighted to have found homes for over 2,000 dogs and puppies, and still counting. The rescue takes each abandoned, abused or injured dog and places them into a foster home with a family where it is given much love and attention, and also socialized, before the search for its forever home begins. Valentine has always been a pet lover herself, owning her own dog, a teacup Chihuahua. In the beginning, the dogs

were sent to her to foster and the year following that she became a frontline worker. Fortunately she’s been able to find homes for all the foster dogs and cats she looks after. She’s kept busy in this line of work. In a matter of a day she could have up to 14 dogs to care for. She has had more than 40 at one time in her garage, in separate kennels. The work includes bathing, grooming, feeding and taking them for their daily walks and visits to the vet if needed.

Carlyle area and because some of the foster dogs are in desperate need of a bath, hair and a nail trim, Valentine decided that it only made sense to take the dog grooming course herself. Now that she has taken the course, she set up her grooming room in her basement and has many other customers bring their pets to her as well when they’re in need of a trim. She named her pet grooming business Pretty Paw Day Spa. And if that doesn’t keep Valentine busy enough she

home and they’re not going to be abused.” The age of the dog and how much care they need determines how long Valentine fosters each dog. She’s had some for up to two months because they needed to ‘come out of their shell’ and just be more trusting of people. Some of the foster dogs have been adopted from as far away as Vancouver. Valentine says she has so many memorable moments in this line of work and they’re all different and all unique.

“It’s a lot of work,” admits Valentine. “There was a litter of puppies that had to be bottle fed.” Valentine does have volunteer helpers that are willing to walk the dogs, etc. “They are a huge help!” explains Valentine “I couldn’t do it without them.” There aren’t a lot of pet groomers in the

also has a career out of the home with 12-hour shifts at a long-term care facility. Although Valentine couldn’t pin it down to just one reason what the best thing is about looking after rescue dogs, she says: “To pick them up and watch them bloom.” She explains that sometimes they’re scared, they may not be used to getting the chance to come indoors.” Valentine definitely gets attached to her rescue dogs. Usually when they leave after fostering them, there are a lot of tears, but they’re happy tears. She’s sad to see them go but happy for their new life. “It makes your heart happy to know that they’re going to a loving

“The very first foster dog I had was a threeyear-old named Whitney, she came from a hoarder situation. She wasn’t abused….she just had no human contact. She was raised in a kennel. We had her for three months, she came out of her shell. She would go for walks with me and follow me to work.” Valentine is informed of the history of each dog so she can better understand how to care for each individual dog. And the same information is passed on to the adoptive owner. “The first two bottle fed puppies, miniature pinchers, were also hard to let go. They were fed with an eye dropper every hour,” reminisces Valentine, who adds

Teresa Valentine gives morning kisses to one of her foster pups. Photo submitted “You get pretty attached to these ones.” Valentine goes above and beyond to help the dogs, and it’s all volunteer. “I’ve built a really good relationship with White Bear,” explains Valentine. “Night or day they call me and I help them no questions asked about a dog that needs my help, whether it’s a litter of puppies or a stray.” Every dog that’s taken off the reserve is signed for. Bright Eyes is an amazing organization and they operate on donations. Donations may include food, dog beds, kennels and most of all cash donations to go towards vet bills. “My husband and my daughter help me out a tremendous amount,” says a very grateful Valentine. “When I first started fostering I didn’t expect

to be this involved,” explains Valentine. It can be exhausting at times but when she steps into her garage and sees all the dogs with their tails wagging and barking so excitedly to see her, that all melts away. The dogs love her unconditionally. “My life is full,” says Valentine “but it’s very rewarding.” “Everyone makes the comment ‘I don’t know how you can do it’ but I reply ‘I don’t know how I can’t.’” “When you hand the dog off to their new forever home, it’s just heartwarming, you might shed a tear or two or cry all the way home, but it’s a happy cry!” If you have a love of dogs and would like to help out, please give Teresa Valentine a call at 577-8631 for more information about Bright Eyes Dog Rescue.

WAYS TO GIVE YOUR MOM A BREAK ON MOTHER’S DAY One of the best gifts you can give your mom for Mother’s Day is time off.

1

2

Take care of dinner. Whether you invite her out for a quick bite or prepare a multi-course feast, your mom will be delighted to share a meal with you — especially if she doesn’t have to cook it herself.

3

Detail her car. Though you can wash your mom’s care in the driveway yourself, for superior results, you should take it to a professional. Car detailing specialists will clean and wax the exterior and can also treat leather seats or remove stains and smells from the upholstery.

Do the chores. Make your mom happy this Mother’s Day by cleaning the house from top to bottom. You can even hire a professional to wash the windows. Additionally, you could drop her clothes off at the dry cleaner to be laundered or the tailor to be mended.

MOTHER’S DAY AROUND THE WORLD Every country has its own Mother’s Day traditions. Here are a few ways this occasion is celebrated around the world.

GERMANY

The second Sunday in May is considered a day of rest for moms across the country. It’s also an opportunity for children to spoil their mothers. The day usually begins with a tasty breakfast and flowers, followed by a family walk. Mother’s Day in Germany typically ends with a hearty meal.

ETHIOPIA

Rather than landing on a fixed date, Mother’s Day takes place at the end of the rainy season in the fall. The festivities begin with a traditional dish prepared by the children while their mothers relax. Singing and dancing are highlights of the celebration, which lasts three days. Though traditions vary, one thing is universal: Mother’s Day is an opportunity for people to celebrate the most important woman in their life.

ENGLAND

In the U.K., the fourth Sunday of Lent, which is usually in mid-March, is known as Mothering Sunday. Originally, it was a day for servants to take off and spend with their family. Now, it’s customary for sons to give their mom flowers and for daughters to bake a cake made of dried fruits and almond paste.

Mother’s Day May 9th

BRAZIL

On the second Sunday in May, Brazilian children celebrate Mother’s Day by putting on a show for their mom. After attending mass, extended families gather for a big barbecue to mark the occasion.

Golf a round at the Crossroads of Friendship By Laura Kish Stoughton is a small town located at the junction of Highways 13, 33 & 47 and in this placement has been given the name The Crossroads of Friendship. Spend a day in Stoughton and experience rural Saskatchewan for yourself. A round of golf on Stoughton’s nine-hole par-34 course can be a great start to your day. Nestled on a neat little triangle of land on the eastern edge of town, the natural landscape complements the irrigated fairways, grass green, man-made moguls and planted evergreens and shrubbery. It makes a picturesque stroll even if you don’t golf. Danielle Hoffman, president of the Stoughton Golf Club, said that their opening day is set for May 1. “We just took the tarps off Saturday and some of the greens look really good,” states Hoffman. “The odd one may not look as good but it's early in the season so hopefully they'll come around by early June.”

“Some of the fairways have irrigation but not all of them,” explains Hoffman although it’s on their wish list to have all of the fairways irrigated, but they are limited to water. They use a dugout so water is always limited for them. “We've had quite a few dry years,” says Hoffman. “Because we have grass greens we always make sure they are looked after first with the available water…the fairways are second on the list.” Hoffman goes on to explain: “We get a lot of runoff from the town and Taylor Park as they pump down the pond there to the golf course.” “During the winter when the town does snow removal they dump the snow at the golf course by the dugout so we get that runoff too.” “We do what we can but we are limited.” Stoughton Golf didn't open their clubhouse last year due to COVID-19. “We also sold our carts at the beginning of the 2020 season because when our board

We knew we needed to keep our greens alive and wondered about where we were going to get the funds so we sold our golf carts at the beginning of the year. The decision was made not to open the clubhouse because we couldn't have tournaments.” “Last year we thought we could save some money,” explains

Town of Kipling Sidewalk Replacement Proposal

Hoffman. “We ended the 2020 season in the black which was nice because that does not happen very often.” This year the club has new carts in already. They did some repairs in the clubhouse, put new flooring in, and they’re also putting in a walk-up ice cream window on the south side of the building. “Hopefully that will draw in a little more as well,” says Hoffman. “We took last year to figure some things out.” Stoughton Golf Club’s memberships remained about the same last year as normal, an average of between 80 to 100 members. “We might have lost a little bit of foot traffic…we didn't have a lot of walk-on golfers last year,” states Hoffman and adds “Fingers crossed that this year will be a better year.” The Club holds regular events such as Ladies Night Tuesdays and Men's Night Wednesdays. Thursday mornings is open golf where a golfer comes out and is paired up with another golfer. They play best ball. It

tends to be mostly seniors take advantage of this golf although it is open to all ages. The Club will hold their members’ tournament, open tournament and the Harvest Classic tournament. Other clubs in town such as the Swimming Pool and the Day Care each usually have a fundraiser tournament. Some years the club was lucky to have 20 or more entered in some of the tournaments but they are hoping people have the itch to get back out golfing after more than a year in lockdown. Stoughton Golf course has many features to entice a golfer to play a round. The grass greens are very nice, it’s a challenging course but not too challenging . “We play to every skill level,” says Hoffman. “It’s also a walkable course which is nice if a person wants to get out for some exercise.” This year the club is thrilled to offer something new and exciting junior lessons taught by a pro out of Midale. “A lot of the kids

They are running two classes consisting of eight lessons over eight weeks. Hoffman is hopeful this is something that the club can offer every year. “The nice thing about our course is that it is easy to get onto especially during the week,” explains Hoffman. “It’s a reasonable price for a round of golf. When the course is at its prime, it’s a very nice course.” Hoffman says one of the best reasons a golfer should try a round at Stoughton is: “You’re never going to feel rushed at our course. The members we have are very welcoming! We’re always excited to have new people come out and try our course.” “We have a couple who come from Weyburn faithfully every day and play 27 holes.” The clubhouse is staffed and we’re ready for business.

Enjoy a championship-level course at Golf Kenosee By Laura Kish Golf Kenosee, located in Moose Mountain Provincial Park, has been around for a very long time. This course was started back in 1935 and was owned by the government. The 135 shareholders took it over in 1986 and is run by five board members. Golf Kenosee is an 18-hole grass green course known as the Jewel in the Moose Mountains. About 12 or 14 years ago the course received major renovations with the holes all being redone. “They made it a true par-72 course,” explains Brent Lothian, pro shop manager at Golf Kenosee for his fourth year. “They turned it into a championship golf course that it is today.” “It was a short golf course and it wasn’t near as beautiful as it is today,” says Lothian. “They turned it into quite a challenging course.” There have been a few changes in recent

years. The pro shop was renovated last year and Club 19 upstairs is being redone this year with new flooring, paint and blinds. The old bar was replaced and the old fireplace was switched over to a gas fireplace. Golf Kenosee plans to open for the season on April 30. The tarps were still on the greens as of Saturday afternoon but reports are that they are in great shape and tarps were slated to be removed this week. The latest snowfall greened up the fairways so the plan is to give the fairways one more mow before opening day. “That’ll spruce things up,” says Lothian. Golf Kenosee boasts approximately 220 members. Tuesday nights are men’s nights and Thursday nights are ladies’ nights at the Club. Wednesday morning is Senior Men’s Day for anyone 50 and older. Approximately 20 women take part in the Tuesday morning Ladies League. Annual events in-

clude the Moose Mountain Classic in August and Skins Night every Friday for 40-50 golfers taking part. The Kenosee Ladies Club always puts a tournament on in August as well. “Last year all golfers had to pre book a tee time but we normally have a lot of green fee players who pay as they play,” explains Lothian. Golf Kenosee has a lot of golfers out for a round of golf while camping for the week or visiting for the day. “The COVID rules are slightly relaxed as compared to last year,” explains Lothian. “They’re similar to how we finished out the season in 2020, except anyone stopping in at the pro shop will have to wear a mask and use hand sanitizer upon entering.” “We will be continuing to sanitize the carts between uses,” says Lothian. Four to a group is maximum but that’s considered a normal golf game. Shotgun starts are allowed this year during tournaments, they are allowed two groups per hole so long as they keep the required three metres away while one group is at the tee box. Club 19 hopes to open on Mother’s Day weekend so the COVID rules will definitely impact the restaurant as they are only allowed 50 per cent capacity. “It’s possible that some of our big tournaments won’t happen again this year because

A view from the #1 tee off at Golf Kenosee. Photo by Doug Walker of the COVID rules still in place,” explains Lothian. “We probably had our best year ever last year for green fee players,” says Lothian. Golf was one of few sports everyone could still do. “We had a lot of golfers last year,” says Lothian. “We had about 22,000 rounds, whereas 18,000 to 20,000 is an average year.” Lothian comments on some of the features of Golf Kenosee that would entice a golfer to play a round there. “Everyone comments on the first tee because you’re standing up on the hill looking down at the beautiful sites all around,” explains Lothian. “People have commented that it’s the best start hole visually in all of Saskatchewan.”

What better way is there to start a round of golf? “It’s a very challenging hole because of the water and trees and there’s all kinds of other obstacles,” says Lothian and he adds “From a visual point of view it’s breathtaking.” Lothian says one of the best reasons a golfer should try out their golf course: “From both the restaurant and Pro Shop perspective, we want to make sure everyone has the best possible experience. We like to think that we treat all of our customers the best

that we can treat them and then they can enjoy their round of golf. There are so many different views on every hole. Our greenskeeper Kelvin Van Winkoop does such an amazing job that it is just a pristine golf course.” Golf Kenosee was so busy last year, both during the week and on weekends. “We had many new first time members sign up last year that we hadn’t had before,” explains Lothian. Make a trip to the park this summer and golf a round at Golf Kenosee.

Alida weekly news Submitted by Edel Cowan   On April 21 three past employees, Wendy Nelson, Shelly Cowan and Marcia Gervais, took their boss Gail McLachlin out for a retirement supper at the Olive Branch restaurant in Carnduff. Good luck Gail with your future plans and do enjoy your time with family and friends.  We are on the last week in April and we had a very slight shower. Don’t think it will amount to too much at all. But maybe one can now truthfully say that April showers will bring May flowers. Even if much more rain is needed, it is a slight start.   Also during this last week in April, the schools in the area are reopening after two weeks of closure, all seems to be okay. Hope everyone has enjoyed their week back at school now and hopefully they can continue attending school to the end of school year. Good luck students and HEALTH SERVICES

Housing The Social Housing Program provides safe and adequate housing to individuals and families in need. This program is intended to serve households with low incomes; priority is given to seniors (55+), families with children or dependants, and individuals with disabilities. This program is possible through contributions by the federal, provincial, and municipal governments. The rent for a housing unit is based on gross household income. Priority for placement is given to applicants in most need. Applications are kept on file for six months. Seniors who do not meet eligibility criteria may still be able to rent units, depending on availability.

The Housing Authority presently has vacancies and may be able to rent to applicants that do not meet program criteria. Anyone looking for housing is encouraged to apply. Applications can be obtained at the town office or through the Housing Authority Manager. For more information contact: (306) 577- 9978

Open and shut A recent post on Facebook caught my attention.   Although many folks are turned off by that page, I have appreciated recent attempts to counteract all the depressing news associated with COVID. So, following that introduction, here’s what made me pause and smile.  A sign, advertising a mechanical garage, read: “When one door closes, another opens…” Oh so true, I said to myself, but before I could get too philosophical, I finished reading. Here’s where the grin slid on my face: “Otherwise, it’s a good car.”  But before I go any further, I want to express my deep appreciation for officials who are doing their best to deal with this horrid pandemic. Lately there are more

Red Cross urges preparedness

Linda Wegner Words of Worth closed doors than open ones where I live. A few examples include restaurants permitting only take-out or patio dining; shopping limited to purchasing essential goods only; inviting friends and neighbours outside our “bubble” has been curtailed; and, effective immediately, reasons for ferry travel must be stated and limited to essential factors.   There are so many closed doors right now,

finding the open doors isn’t that easy. Personally, my world has shrunk to include trips to the drug store, one grocery store and picking up my morning tea at a local drive-through. But what about those open doors? As I think back to decades-ago calamities, how grateful I am for Zoom church. Not what I’d chose, but it’s an open door. Telephone calls to friends I’ve not seen or talked to for years suddenly become important as are those chats across the streets with wonderful neighbours.  Life isn’t what it was or what we currently wish for, but He is faithful.   “These are the words of the Holy One, the True One, He who opens and no one will [be able to] shut, and He who shuts and no one opens.” 

Borderland Co-op

With the arrival of spring comes the arrival of the potential for wildfires, floods or tornados, so Emergency Preparedness Week, which runs May 2-8, is the perfect time to get ready. “Disasters often strike with little warning,” said Georgiana Matharu, Canadian Red Cross emergency management operations manager in Saskatchewan. “You may need to evacuate quickly and having an emergency kit on hand and ready to go can help you navigate the first 72 hours with a little peace of mind.” Having a basic kit is good but personalizing it and updating it for COVID-19 protection is even better. The essentials for a kit include non-perishable food, cash, a first aid kit, keys, medica-

tion, a change of clothes, water, and important documents, such as home insurance information. Beyond these items, you should “personalize your kit to your specific needs,” says Matharu. “If you have children, include games to keep them occupied. Pack pet food if you have animals in the house. Keep an extra set of eyeglasses

handy, and don’t forget chargers for electronic equipment.” Tailoring an emergency kit to your specific needs can make all the difference in a time of crisis. During the pandemic, it’s also important to update your emergency kit to include items to protect yourself and others from the spread of COVID-19.

HOROSCOPES

ARIES – Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, you have a unique perspective, and sometimes you appear uninterested in the opinions of others. But this week it is best to be humble and accept other thoughts. TAURUS – Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, you routinely put caring for others ahead of caring for yourself. This compassion is commendable, but you can’t offer help if you aren’t in top form. GEMINI – May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, let others bring up issues with you rather than prying. You willingness to lend an ear is well-known, and others will come to you on their own. CANCER – Jun 22/Jul 22 It may be tempting to slack off when supervisors are not looking, Cancer. However, a lack of discipline now may have a trickledown effect in the future. Stay focused. LEO – Jul 23/Aug 23 You may not be sure if you should pursue an opportunity that is before you, Leo. Consider your skills and talents and be honest with what you are capable of accomplishing. VIRGO – Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, even though it can be risky to express your true feelings, especially when you go against popular opinion, don’t shy away from being true to yourself. LIBRA – Sept 23/Oct 23 Your head is pushing you in a practical direction, Libra. Yet your heart wants you to go a different way. Try to find a balance between both scenarios. SCORPIO – Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, others are ready and willing to offer advice if they sense you need it. While you can be open to suggestions, don’t follow others’ dreams if they aren’t your own. SAGITTARIUS – Nov 23/Dec 21 You may be conflicted about telling someone you need a little personal space, Sagittarius. But it’s not good to suffer through situations that make you unhappy. CAPRICORN – Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, even though you cannot please everyone, you can do what is necessary to make yourself happy. Make this your primary goal this week. AQUARIUS – Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, people may misunderstand your intentions when you start a new project. You don’t have to please everyone right now. The end result will be met with positive responses. PISCES – Feb 19/Mar 20 Moving on from an emotional situation can be taxing, Pisces. But it may be necessary right now and could make you stronger in the long run.
