Oxbow Chase the Ace hit records and found lucky winners By Ana Bykhovskaia The Oxbow and District Recreation Board's virtual Chase the Ace reached its historical high before it went to three lucky winners on June 2. There were 20,000 tickets to sell, and Tami Scott, an active member of the recreation board, said it was a real community-based project with a lot of participation. The enormous support that the board saw from people all across the province and especially the southeast, reinforced by an impressive jackpot, allowed the board to sell out tickets before the deck of cards was gone and two weeks before the licence expired. It meant that almost a week before the final draw date, the jackpot was sitting at its historical high of $60,006. "We certainly didn't expect the rush that there was and it was exciting. It was very busy, but it was exciting. People started purchasing immediately after the second last draw," Scott said. With 19 cards left in the deck, the last batch of 2,336 tickets was sold in 18 hours, bringing the weekly pot to $4,672. It was won by Allan Coffey on the draw day. Since the Ace of Spades and an impressive jackpot coming with it had to go, the game continued. On the eighth try, the lucky ticket with

Winners of the Oxbow and District Recreation Board's virtual Chase the Ace were, from left Ken Hood, Mae Durante and Sam Dickson. Photo submitted the names of Oxbow's Ken Hood, Mae Durante and Sam Dickson on it was drawn. Hood, one of the winners, explained that Dickson has a superstition about the number eight,

which helped them win the game. "The number eight is lucky in Chinese. We were the eighth person to pick a card. Ken picked and he told his wife, if her name comes up, she

has to pick eight. And our number comes up. And he picked eight and that's where the Ace of Spades was," Hood shared. A3 » THREE

Hot summer days all for cool outdoor pools By Jessica R. Ryan With everything now on a more direct path to complete reopening and summer getting off to a good start, it is pleasant news that the Carlyle Swimming Pool will be open for this season. The pool will open exclusively to students for its first set of after school swimming lessons beginning June 21. The pool will begin to be open to the public on June 26. “Our summer staff consists of students and although we had hoped

to open earlier for public swim, most guards are in high school and are busy with finals and graduations” says Erica Frazer, member of the Carlyle and District Leisure Complex Board, which is responsible for maintaining and managing the pool. While the pool has always seen regular and dedicated maintenance that have kept it in such good shape, maintenance cannot entirely stop the inevitable process of aging. “Last season, we noticed some deterioration of the panels be-

hind the pool liner in the deep end of the pool, creating weak points in the pool walls,” said Frazer. The board contacted Western Recreation and Development Inc. whom they’ve worked with in regard to pool maintenance for a number of years. Upon the recommendation of Western Recreation and Development Inc., the board has braced the walls behind the pool liner in the problem areas, which has improved the safety and structural integrity of the pool. Because of

this construction on the pool, the facility is able to safely operate. “These repairs will increase the longevity of the pool and extend the life of our current liner,” said Frazer. The repairs are not a permanent solution and ultimately, the pool is going to need to see a full repair to its walls and a new liner in the process. “This repair is tentatively scheduled to commence fall of 2022 with completion in spring of 2023 and has been quoted at $243,300 plus taxes.” The pool’s change rooms have also seen some repairs happening this year. “We had an engineer through the facility and recommended new support beams and bracing some existing beams to bring them back up to code.” The work on the change rooms was completed by Amped Welding Inc. Thanks to a generous grant that The Carlyle Pool was fortunate to receive by the Government of Saskatchewan Municipal Economic Enhancement Program, the pool has also been fitted with rubber paving that skirts the outside of the pool deck. This surface

The Carlyle Swimming Pool is expected to be a popular destination for families this year. replaces brick that extended the cement surrounding the pool, but those bricks posed a tripping hazard as they began to sink more into the ground. The tripping hazard has now been eliminated with the rubber paving that now replaces the brick. The rubber paving provides swimmers with a soft, even walking surface that also adds aesthetic value to the pool deck. The Carlyle Pool is a community initiative as it relies on volunteers and donations from the community to keep itself afloat. Such fundraisers for the pool include the Southern Plains Co-op donating 10 per cent of all grocery sales on June 5. Another upcoming fundraiser that the pool is holding in partnership with the Carlyle Golf

Club is a golf tournament. The tournament is a four-person Texas scramble and the event will be held on June 19. “We have been blown away with the donations and support from the community business, and surrounding community business as well,” said Frazer. As the board consists of only five members who also maintain full-time jobs, the board is always looking for new members. In addition, the pool is always interested in hiring qualified individuals for lifeguard positions.

Dean Zacharias retiring from Gordon F. Kells school By Kaitlyn Meisner

Dean Zacharias, an English teacher from Gordon F. Kells High School, is planning on retiring this year after almost 30 years of teaching in Arcola and Carlyle. Zacharias spent about 15 years in Arcola and 12 years in Carlyle during his career. He has been very involved in the community since his career started and will be dearly missed by students and teachers.   He is known for being a Saskatchewan Roughriders enthusiast, as well as the teacher who sings a song for graduates every year. However, he has also been involved with other things, such as cross-country running and writing the Cougar Corner article each week for the Observer the past 12 years.  One of the things that will be truly missed by the school is his passion for drama. Maurice Saltel, the principal of Gordon F. Kells, explained that Zacharias was the driving force of much of the drama and plays that would happen at the school.   “He would work with kids to learn their lines and … helped organize dramas … We’re going

to miss the drama part of his experience going forward.” In addition to this, he would get students to act out plays that were read in class and had a tradition each year of taking the senior class to Regina to see a drama production.  Zacharias had never originally planned to be a teacher in this area. In fact, at first he didn’t even think he’d be a teacher at all, but life has a way of surprising people. He ended up spending some time in Arcola teaching, but he had only planned to stay there a little while to gain some experience. In the end, Zacharias explained he ended up staying in rural Saskatchewan because he loved it there.  “We moved out to Arcola, kind of fell in love with the people and the location … and we decided we just weren’t leaving. I’m glad it turned out that way. It’s been great.”  Zacharias will miss a lot about being a teacher, but what he’ll miss most is the energy of high school, and the fun that comes with it.   “You know there’s that saying about how people laugh a certain number of times a day,

but as a teacher I think I laugh way more than average … I’ll miss the laughter. There’s a lot of fun that goes on, even in a COVID year — a lot of fun in the classroom. There’s energy at the school — I’ll miss the laughter and the energy.” Nevertheless, Zacharias is excited for his retirement and the things he’ll be able to do during it.  “I want to do more fishing, and more golfing. And all of those projects that I always thought that I would get to and never did. I also want to spoil my wife more … I want to spend some more time spoiling her.”  Zacharias will be dearly missed by the school. He has impacted the students in many ways over the years, and his presence has meant a lot to them.  Saltel explained: “He brings a calmness to everything he does … He’s very kind … so that’s what he projects in a classroom … With that approach, with many kids, it’s a good way to get them going when they’re stuck. And he managed to work with a wide range of kids with different abilities and he’s managed to get them interested in literature.” 

Dean Zacharias is retiring after a teaching career that spanned nearly 30 years.

Three prize recipients excited about Oxbow draw « A1 He added that winning felt “excellent,” as “money always helps no matter what, not that we couldn’t live without it, but it’s nice that it went local.” The three individuals came together to buy one ticket almost by an accident. “Mae is the restaurant owner (in Oxbow). We go and have coffee and breakfast there pretty much every Friday. And the pot was getting bigger, so I told her she should buy some tickets because I didn’t know if she knew about it. And then she said, ‘Well, how about

we go in together?’ And I said, ‘Well, if the two of us are going together, we have to get the luckiest person I know, Ken, in too. So he showed up and we all threw our money in together and for about a month we’re buying every week and it worked out good,” Hood shared. While they played together, the jackpot they won will help each one of them in a different way. “I’ve got a Visa I’m paying off and I’m going to side my house, which we’re doing anyway but this will help

pay for the siding. Mae, she is from the Philippines, and she is going to put money towards her car and she was planning to go sometime later this year to Philippines to see her mom. And Ken, he’s probably going to donate quite a bit back to the town, the community. He says the older you are, you don’t need as much money. We’ll help out the town a bit,” Hood said. Winners also thanked everybody for participating and supporting the community. The game raised $100,000 for the rec

board’s needs allowing them to focus on some of the projects this year and to continue improving the community facilities in 2022. They hosted this event to raise funds for the five facilities it is responsible for in Oxbow: the community rink, the swimming pool, the memorial hall, the Ralph Allen Memorial Museum and Bow Valley Park. Among other expenses, these funds will contribute to paying off the debt of the new swimming pool and will help cover the projected cost of a new hall,

which the recreation board says they would like to construct within the next seven or eight years. “The projects this year are for the swimming pool, where we’re helping to repay the debt, and the rink is saving up for some new equipment. So that’s where the money is going to go this year,” Scott said. The board also thanked all involved with the successful fundraiser. “Thank you so much to the rec board members for working every week, to Bob

Goodward and Kimberley Sully on being our designated proxies, to Rhonda Hodgson and the staff at Affinity Credit Union and to Christy Hook and staff at the Town Office for doing in-person sales every week and finally to Lian Heiser who made sure all the e-transfers and money part of the game were well looked after. And of course, to Ian (Scott) for the dad jokes. Finally thank you to our players, whether you bought every week or just now and again, we appreciate you,” states their Facebook post.

South East Cornerstone provides update on wearing masks when outdoors during recess The South East Cornerstone Public School Division has provided an update on wearing masks when outdoors during recess at its schools. With the provincial release of the outdoor team sport competition guidelines allowing for athletes and coaches as well as spectators to be unmasked, the school division says it has been

reviewing the current outdoor recess masking requirements. With the heat wave in the southeast last week, the direction became more timely. “We have been in consultation with our local medical health officers and have been advised that wearing a mask while outdoors remains an important

additional layer of protection, especially when children are not able to physically distance. While the current guidelines are that masks are not required if children can physically distance at recess, we also know that recess is a social time and that physically distancing does not loan itself to connections among children,” director of educa-

tion Lynn Little said in a letter. Effective June 3, wearing masks while outside will continue to be encouraged; however, it will no longer be mandatory. If students are not wearing masks, the school division will encourage activities where physical distancing is possible. Students will remain

in their cohorts and in their designated spaces. “Please discuss with your child whether you wish for them to wear their mask while outdoors or not,” Little wrote. Physical education classes being held outdoors will adhere to the provincial guidelines. The public health order remains in effect

for indoors and thus students, staff and all visitors will continue to wear masks while indoors until the health order changes and the division is notified by government.

“Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.” - Eleanor Roosevelt

Vaccine complacency now the battle By Murray Mandryk Vaccines are allowing us to win the fight against COVID-19, as Premier Scott Moe hoped and predicted they would. This is very good news. While critics of the Saskatchewan Party government point to massive success of the Atlantic provinces, it’s worth noting that Manitoba — with much stricter lockdown measures — spent 46 days this winter with an average daily case counts higher than Saskatchewan’s daily average ever was. It’s also noteworthy that Manitoba has had twice the COVID-19 deaths. And it’s impossible not to attribute this success — especially among the more vulnerable older populations — to vaccines. Again, as of the writing of this column, 91 per cent of those 80 years and older have received a first dose while 76 per cent have received a second dose. In the 70-80 years old category, 90 per cent have received a first dose and 54 per cent per cent have received a second dose. In the 60-70 years category, 84 per cent have received a first dose and 19 per cent have received a second dose. The tangible result is fewer people dying — only 10 deaths in the first week of June and just 48 deaths in May. That compares with 55 deaths in April, 51 in March, 81 in February, 155 in January and 106 in December. Compare this with an average winter flu season where — after many also line up for vaccines — we usually have about 10 to 15 deaths and handful of hospitalizations. This winter, Regina and Saskatoon hospitals had to re-direct patients elsewhere because they were overrun with COVID-19 cases. Now, we are seeing both active case counts and hospitalizations reduced to levels we haven’t seen since the start of winter. Given this success, it’s rather puzzling why the lines for vaccines aren’t longer. While older age brackets have taken up the challenge to get their vaccines, younger generations have been more hesitant or maybe simply more complacent. In fact, we have had nine straight days now where second doses have out-paced first doses. On the day of the Sask. Party government’s press conference this week, 5,564 of the 6,742 doses announced were second shots. Also as of the writing of this column, about 40,000 of 147,466 Saskatchewan people 50-59 had not received a shot. Another 50,000 of the 151,896 40-49-year-olds were unvaccinated. More than 80,000 of the 184,246 30-39-year-olds and slightly less than 100,000 of 18 to 29-years were unvaccinated. Some of this can be attributed to such age groups becoming eligible more recently, but the carefree, invulnerability of youth is clearly a factor. While COVID-19 cases are dropping, it’s those that are unvaccinated who are now getting sick. May numbers also reveal 5,296 COVID-19 cases — 92 per cent of which were unvaccinated or those who gotten their first dose within the previous three weeks. “We have an opportunity to basically end the pandemic, the worst aspects of the pandemic, as early as July,” said Saskatchewan chief medical health officer Dr. Saqib Shahab. “Why wouldn’t we take it?” It is a very good question.

A fitting restart

Shelley Luedtke It was the heartwarming story of Sheldon, a Labradorretriever mix, that demonstrated what can be done when skills are recognized and channelled in the right direction. Sheldon was in training to become a service dog but despite his attempts to learn the necessary skills, he wasn’t successful. However, trainers noticed that when he caught a whiff of something, he was determined to follow its track so they made the decision to transfer him into training to become an arson dog.   In that program, Sheldon quickly rose to the top of the class and is now considered a premier accelerant detection canine. He just needed to be where his skills fit.  One of my favourite activities in high school was student council. A friend of mine came on board one year but of-

tions are experiencing changes. It’s inevitable. So perhaps now is the moment to ask ourselves some questions. Which group might best tap into the interests we are missing the most? Which one would fill us up? Where can we help plant good ideas? Who can we help grow and flourish? We might be the rain that can help a group experiencing a drought, or perhaps be new energy for a group drowning in projects. Maybe there’s an activity you haven’t considered before. There’s no time like right now to get those thoughts sprouting.  The important thing is that we get back out there and get involved with the great people in our arts, culture, sports, church, civic and service groups. Get to know them and what they’re doing. They’ll help you find a fit. I know, because I have experienced it.   I can’t wait to get back to the groups I have long been involved with, yet against all better judgment, I’ve even found a spot to help out at the community garden. Yes, live vegetation.  Think of these groups like puzzles. They work best when all the pieces come together and we find the best ways to make them fit. That’s my outlook.

thumb when they were young. One Christmas my daughter gave me three tulips crafted of wood. Her words might have stung had she not been quite so excited as she exclaimed, “Mommy, they are flowers you can’t kill!” Recently, a dear lady brought a gift to congratulate me on something. It was a plant. Now before you come rushing to my office to rescue it from my clutches, this lady knows me well and it is a plant that requires nothing more than my enjoyment. It needs no special care and is doing extremely well, thank you very much. It fits me. What makes her gift so precious is that she gave me something I can’t do, to celebrate something I can. We had a good laugh and I cherished that.  Activities, groups, clubs and organizations are gearing up again. But before we rush headlong into picking up where we left off before the pandemic, maybe we should take a breath and ask ourselves if we are pursuing the right ones. I’ve experienced the frustration of participating in places where my skills didn’t seem to fit, but I’ve also felt the sense of achievement by being stretched and taking on new challenges.  All of our organiza-

ten neglected to follow through on tasks, leaving many of us feeling annoyed. The following year we were shocked when our teacher-advisor encouraged her to run for office as a social convenor. She was resistant, but eventually agreed and was elected into a role she was very good at. Looking after details was not her thing, but she could pump up a crowd and create excitement. Student council needed both. Our advisor knew she just needed to be where her skills fit.  I can’t be trusted with live vegetation. To be blunt, I tend to kill any plants in my care. It’s not that I don’t want to do right by them. It’s not that I don’t try. It’s just that my efforts don’t have a good outcome. I had a perfect office plant. It had little pink and lavender markings on its leaves and looked great on top of a purple filing cabinet in the room.   At least it looked great until I neglected to give it enough water and it died. Later in the year, someone gave me a plant with the prettiest little yellow roses. Having learned my lesson, I was determined to water it well and often. It drowned.   My children discovered my lack of a green

Golfer of the Week: Jacky Lothian By Emily Klatt What began as an ordinary round of golf ended in a major milestone for local golfer Jacky Lothian when she shot her very first hole in one earlier this month. Lothian made the extraordinary shot at hole No. 16 of the White Bear Golf Course while attending Ladies Morning there on June 2. She described being in “disbelief” when friends first suggested she had gotten a hole in one.  “My one teammate right away said ‘I think it’s going in straight at (the hole)’ and I’m like, yeah, right. You know, until we got up there (and) we didn’t see it anywhere,” Lothian said. “Then my

friends told me … (to) go look in the hole and yep, sure enough, there it was.” “(It feels) awesome, fabulous,” Lothian said of her achievement.   Part of her excitement comes from knowing just how uncommon it is to score a hole in one during one’s golfing career.  “I know how rare they are so I feel very fortunate.”  While the first time Lothian swung a golf club was 37 years ago, she said it’s only during the past five years that she’s been golfing on a regular basis. She credits her husband, Brent Lothian, for helping her get into the game.  “I married … an avid

golfer and so I think it was kind of … I could either join him or stay at home or find something else to do, so I decided to join him,” Lothian said. “He’s kind of my coach and (a) very patient teacher.” Lothian is a resident of White Bear Lake and frequently plays the 18hole course located in the community. Another favourite is the nearby Golf Kenosee, where her husband works as the pro shop manager.   “Both at Kenosee and at White Bear … it’s top notch.” Lothian said. “I do believe that we’re so fortunate to have two high quality, awesome courses so close together.”   Some of Lothian’s fondest memories have

taken place on a golf course, including many with her extended family.. “I have very fond memories of Brent’s grandparents and my kids golfing together ... so that’s like four generations that are golfing together. So I thought, you know, that’s, that was kind of very cool,” Lothian said.  While the game has many draws, it’s the community of people who play the game that Lothian said she appreciates the most  “One of the things that we love is the fellowship, that camaraderie. You know, some of the best games are when I’m laughing so hard ... That’s Local golfer Jacky Lothian smiles proudly after getting her very first hole in one.  always so much fun.” 

Cardinals season is back to full swing By Jessica R. Ryan As summer takes its hold over the Prairies and COVID restrictions start to loosen their grip over the region, the height of summer activities slowly start to begin. This sentiment extends to local sports such as the Carlyle Cardinals senior ball team of the Saskota Baseball League. Their first game will be held at the Lions Park on June 15. The team, who won the league in 2020, will play 10 games throughout the season. The annual year-end Harbourne Memorial Tournament will be played on the Saskatchewan Day long weekend. COVID left baseball

somewhat unchanged last year. The season was reduced and some games had to be played differently. “The playoffs were different, we had to do series’ because tournaments weren't allowed.” Said Brent Mclean, a leading member of the Cardinals. “Well nothing so far because we haven't played yet, but it definitely delayed the season; normally we would have started a month sooner.” recalls Mclean when asked how COVID and related restrictions have affected the team. “We’d love to see fans come out. Our full schedule is available on the websit,” said Mclean.

The team consists of about 15 players who are ready and excited for the season to begin. The Cardinals are ready to get out on the field and play some ball for the community. The team is also open to welcoming new players. If one is interested in playing with the Cardinals they can simply get in contact with one of the members and come out to practice. With outdoor sports and other summer outdoor activities being able to return to a new sense of somewhat normal, it can be taken as a sign that soon things may resemble what they once were. The Cardinals are in the North Division this

Report from the Saskatchewan Legislature Submitted by Daryl Harrison   A strong and growing number of people in Saskatchewan are getting vaccinated. This is driving down COVID-19 case numbers, hospitalizations and helping to ease public health orders.  Recently, Step 1 of our Re-Opening Roadmap began with household gathering limits expanding up to 10 people and attendance at worship services, public gatherings, and table limits at restaurants all increasing. Youth and adult outdoor sports are now

able to resume as well. Step 2 of our ReOpening Roadmap is scheduled to begin June 20. This means no capacity limits on retail, personal care services, bars, and restaurants; further increases to private gathering sizes; and organized indoor sports and recreational activities are allowed to resume.   Step 3 is within reach. Once 70 per cent of all eligible residents ages 12 and older have received their first vaccine and at least three weeks have passed from the start of Step 2, the last two public health orders – event

and gathering size limits and indoor masking – will be removed. Our goal is simple: protect people so we can re-open safely. This could happen as early as July 11 if we meet our vaccination target by June 20. Residents who have not received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine are strongly encouraged to book an appointment and stick it to COVID. Those who have are reminded, once eligible, that it is equally important to follow up that first dose with a second.  As life returns to normal and we focus on our economic recovery,

workers and families in our province have a lot to look forward to. Over the past few months, Saskatchewan has welcomed major investments that will add value to the products we produce, create local jobs and support economic growth.  •March 22 – Richardson International announced the doubling of their canola crush capacity in Yorkton to be the largest in Canada;  •April 22 – Cargill announced a $350 million investment to build a state-of-the-art canola crush facility in Regina;

•April 26 – Viterra announced the building of the world’s largest integrated canola crush plant outside Regina; •May 25 – Ceres announced a $350 million investment to build a canola crush facility in Northgate; and  •June 1 – Red Leaf Pulp Ltd. announced a $350 million wheat straw-based pulp mill for Regina, Canada’s first non-wood pulp mill.  The Regina-based Brandt Group of Companies also recently announced plans to hire 1,000 new employees with half of those new hires to occur in Saskatchewan.  Saskatchewan’s Targeted Mineral Exploration Incentive (TMEI) Program has attracted $9.8 million of investment over the past year with companies completing drill programs for gold, silver, copper, nickel, cobalt, zinc, and platinum group elements. This is leading to a gold rush and the world’s first carbon neutral copper mine.  Saskatchewan’s Accelerated Site Closure Program (ASCP) has

also seen strong uptake and success during its first year with more than 500 Saskatchewan companies working on inactive oil and gas sites. With travel to other provinces currently discouraged due to the pandemic, many of us look forward to enjoying provincial parks. Visitors to Rowan’s Ravine Provincial Park will notice work has already begun to repave the access road leading to the park, the Underwood campground loops, the boat launch and parking lot. Access roads leading to Good Spirit Lake and Danielson Provincial Park will also be repaved.  Investments in Saskatchewan parks will improve boat launches, parking lots, park roads and pathways as well as campground areas.  Meanwhile, the Ministry of Highways is making significant improvements to thin-membrane surface highways, passing lanes, municipal roads, and airports. This is a part of the province’s $2 billion stimulus in response to COVID-19.

Whispering Angels Healing offers alternative pathways to wellness By Emily Klatt    Whispering Angels Healing is a new business that offers a variety of holistic health and healing services to the residents of southeastern Saskatchewan.  The business is coowned by Shirley Rehm and her son, Terry Rehm. The pair has recently set up shop in Carlyle after being based in Regina for nearly 20 years. Although their business is new to the area, they are not; Shirley was born and raised in Redvers and lived in the area for many years.  “Generally, everything we do here is for healing in a lot of ways,” Shirley Rehm said. “I do a lot of herb work (and) make teas out of herbs to help with illnesses. I am not a cure. I work with doctors to help bring

down your blood sugar, (or) whatever it is that you need to do.” Whispering Angels Healing offers a wide variety of services, all aimed at helping individuals with physical, emotional and psychological healing. These services include herbal work, energy work, smudging ceremonies and psychic mediumship.   A variety of products are also sold such as herbal teas, dreamcatchers, crystals, and healing jewelry.    In addition to her work as a herbalist, Shirley Rehm has also been practicing Reiki — a form of energy healing — for about 15 years. She also makes much of the jewelry for sale in the store.  Terry Rehm offers services as a psychic medium. Mediumship focuses on creating contact

between the world of the living and the world of the deceased, while psychic work focuses more on predictions and insights about the future. “I like to focus on the mediumship side of things because I feel that it’s my way of connecting,” Terry Rehm said.  At present, Shirley offers classes and instruction in the healing methods she practises, like Reiki. Terry does not currently offer instruction in psychic work or mediumship but wants to pursue the idea in the future.  Shirley Rehm emphasized that she and her son do not provide cures for ailments, but rather work to ease any pain that individuals may be experiencing.   For those who are unfamiliar with the alternative healing methods practised by Whispering


Terry Rhem (left) and Shirley Rehm are the co-owners of Whispering Angels Healing. Angels Healing, Shirley Rehm encourages them to approach things with an open mind.  “All I can say is open your mind. Try it, because you’ll be amazed by the results. It’s really actually amazing what a cup of tea

every day can help you with,” Rehm said. ‘People think that psychics are something that’s bad … It’s not bad. It’s a healing form. So you know, come talk to us.” Whispering Angels Healing is located at

unit #104 Falco Place on Main Street in Carlyle. It is open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. More information about products and services can be found on the Whispering Angels Healing Facebook page.

Envision now offers rapid access counselling The walk-in counselling program at the Envision Counselling and Support Centre has only been operating since 2019, but it is already getting an update and name change. Walk-in counselling will now be rapid access counselling – a free, immediate, accessible and brief form. A province-wide website, www.counsellingconnectsask.ca, has been launched to reduce wait times and make booking appointments easier. Beginning in June, Envision’s rapid access counselling will be offered through this one-stopshop website created to make it easier for people in Saskatchewan to

access counselling. “People will now be able to book a session with a trained counsellor through the website up to 48 hours in advance,” said Christa Daku, Envision Counselling and Support Centre’s executive director. “The unique thing about this website is that if the local rapid access counselling location is fully booked for the day, individuals can view other locations with open sessions around the province and book in with another counsellor.” The service is for all individuals looking for help with a wide range of issues, including stress, depression, anxiety, family conflict and

urgent needs. In a news release, Envision said many people will go to their doctor or to an emergency room when experiencing stress, anxiety or depression. Sometimes brief talk therapy can be the most effective way to begin resolving a problem. “We discovered during the pandemic that individuals can thrive through remote appointments as well as in-person walk-in counselling,” said Daku. “Thanks to our partnership with Family Services Saskatchewan and other agencies providing the same service, we were able to improve accessibility provincewide and make this

website a reality.” Daku adds that access to affordable mental health counselling is an issue that significantly impacts many families, and having all counselling locations and available times in one spot makes Envision Counselling easier to find. All other Envision Counselling program protocols outside of rapid access counselling will be staying the same and are still available by calling their local office locations. Family Service Saskatchewan connects rapid access counselling services across the province. These services are community-based for adults, children,

teens and their families. The service is available at multiple locations across Saskatchewan and aims to increase access to solution-focused counselling. Services can be accessed at www. counsellingconnectsask. ca. Envision Counselling and Support Centre has been supporting

southeast Saskatchewan for over 25 years by providing innovative programming and diverse counselling and support services to individuals, couples and families. Individuals looking for more information can find it on Envision’s website at www.envisioncounsellingcentre. com.

What’s happening in Agriculture Fresh From The Garden provides great produce By Emily Klatt Lorrissa Stigings works hard to feed her community. She’s the owner and operator of Fresh From The Garden, a smallscale agriculture business that provides locally-grown, chemical-free produce and farm-fresh eggs to residents of the Carlyle area.  Located on a farm just outside of Carlyle, Fresh From The Garden began seven years ago as a market garden selling vegetables, typically grown in the ground, and has since expanded into a venture that includes both garden and greenhouse-produced vegetables.  “In the greenhouse I grow mini cucumbers, which are a favourite of the locals. I always grow cherry tomatoes, larger slicing tomatoes, green peppers and jalapeños.

In the garden we have the traditional vegetables like peas, beans, carrots, potatoes, onions and pickling cucumbers,” Stigings said in an email to The Observer. Despite growing up in a family of gardeners, Stigings did not expect that one day she would be running her own agriculture business.  “My mom had a greenhouse where she sold flowers and bedding plants. Also my mom and grandma always grew a massive garden every year. Back then as a kid, gardening was not fun and definitely not something I thought I would be doing later in life,” Stigings said.   Fresh From The Garden is now a thriving business, but according to Stigings things got off to a less-than-ideal start. 

“The very first year was a disaster. Had no clue what I was doing and made many, many mistakes,” Stigings said. “However, I wasn't about to give up. I enrolled in a few horticulture classes through the University of Saskatchewan distance learning program. I also became a member of the Saskatchewan Greenhouse Growers Association where I met a few great people who were more than willing to share their knowledge.” Stigings believes that local and smallscale agriculture are important industries within the province of Saskatchewan.   “We have a lot of opportunity within our province to produce a good portion of our own food. Why wouldn't we take advantage of what's right in front us?”   The Fresh From

Two co-ops approve an amalgamation At their respective annual general meetings (AGM), the members of both Borderland and Hometown Co-ops have voted to approve a special resolution to move forward with the amalgamation proposed in April. Hometown’s AGM was held June 7 with 36 members and six guests in attendance. The resolution was carried unanimously. Borderland’s AGM was held June 8 with 43 members and three guests in attendance. The resolution was also carried with 100 per cent support. The new board will take effect Oct. 10, and consists of members from Rocanville, Broadview, Moosomin, Maryfield,

Kipling and Whitewood. Lawrence Swanson will become president of Borderland Co-op with Chris Ashfield serving as vice-president and Astrid Van‘t Westeinde serving as secretary. The next steps will see both co-ops prepare all the documentation, integration of processes and many other behind the scenes tasks to bring two co-ops together on paper in advance of the Oct. 10 amalgamation date. Until the end of the day on Oct. 9, both coops will continue to operate as Borderland and Hometown separately. Members will be contacted over the next four months with options

available to them for combining shared member numbers. In a press release, it was stated that co-ops were built on the concept of working together and this partnership is sure to make for a stronger, united co-op committed to serving their communities better. “I see endless opportunities ahead for this new partnership,” said Swanson, who is the president of the Hometown board. “Stability, opportunities for growth and efficiencies in all commodities that will make the member experience stronger and more rewarding across all communities we serve.” “The decision to

amalgamate will ensure a strong, vibrant and innovative co-op exists in our rural communities. Both co-ops complement each other very well,” added Rob Hill, the president of the Borderland board. By partnering together, the united co-op will be more resilient to increasing competition and will have more resources and talent to pool together in order to innovate. “Having come from Hometown and now being part of the leadership team for both co-ops, I believe there is significant value in the common goal we share ... building a strong and stable rural co-op that can constantly evolve to meet the needs

of our members in the communities we serve,” said Darren Ottenbreit, home and agro ops director. “Unifying our co-ops will provide efficiencies in operations, more expertise to better develop our people and ultimately, a better shopping experience for members of both co-op’s which will earn local support and keep our locations viable for the long term.” Jason Schenn, CEO of Borderland and GM of Hometown shares his view: “Borderland has always focused on being a strong and stable rural co-operative which has been extended to Hometown through the management agree-

ment. The pandemic has proven that when communities support their local businesses, they can be sustainable for the long term. Our continuing mission is to strive to earn our members support so that rural communities we serve can continue to provide essential services long into the future. Having these resolutions approved by the membership means we can focus our efforts on combining our two coops into one unified coop. We thank our members for their support, and we look forward to creating more opportunities to contribute to what makes rural communities so special.”

David (Dave) Allan Sr. Perreaux

Rita (Claude) Stach

May 11, 1950 - May 30, 2021

August 30, 1932 - April 23, 2021

Late model winch trucks and trailers; dump trucks and pups. Hauling heavy equipment, gravel, and camp shacks. Wage negotiable. Clean drivers abstract a must.

David was born to Gilbert Perreaux (St. Michel, France) and Claire Marie Jeanne (Roussel) Perreaux (Bellegarde, SK) in Antler, SK. David was raised on a farm outside of Bellegarde SK, along with his 2 sisters and 3 brothers. As a young man, he secured an electrical apprenticeship in Edmonton, but decided to begin a lifelong career in mining starting in the Northwest Territories, where he also met the love of his life, Olga. They were married in August of 1972. He worked at various mines throughout his career, including with the Inco Nickel Mine in Thompson, MB. There, their family grew, beginning with Christian in 1973 and shortly after, David Jr in 1974. Michelle was born in Prince Albert, SK in 1976. They moved the family to the Saskatoon, SK area in 1978, where Dave continued his Underground Mine career at the Potash Mine in Allen, SK. To supplement the family income during the layoff cycle, Dave took to reupholstering and restoring cars, as well as part-time Blasting. In his spare time, Dave enjoyed Rec Hockey and Broomball, as well as competitive Bowling with Olga. Dave was an active member of the Mine Rescue team, winning many awards in the Saskatchewan Mine Rescue Competitions while he was employed at the potash mine. In 1991, there was a tunnel fire at Smokey River Coal, Grande Cache, AB. The mine asked any and all available Mine Rescue persons to assist with the recovery and fire-fighting. Dave was one of those who answered the call. He was offered a job at Smokey River Coal, and after Olga had come to look at the town, accepted and settled in Grande Cache. He stayed with Smokey River Coal until its closure in 2000. In 2004, Grande Cache Coal was formed and Dave as Maintenance Foreman, was instrumental in many projects. He stayed on with Grande Cache Coal until its closure in 2015. From there, he went to work at the BC Hydro Project, Site C, until his retirement in 2020. Dave garnered the respect and admiration of anyone who worked for him. David is predeceased by his wife Olga, parents Gilbert and Claire, and his sister, Vivian Clement. David is survived by his brothers Romeo (Karen), Norman (Marcie), and Don (Brenda), and his sister Reina McBeath (Lloyd). He is also survived by his children Christian (Chantel), David Jr (Jennifer) and daughter Michelle, as well as his grandchildren Kaetlin, Jacob, Kayla, Mollie and Alisha. Thank you to the staff of the Grande Cache Medical Complex, as well as Dr. Gillett. In lieu of a funeral, a celebration of life is being planned for this summer once restrictions are lifted. Date TBD. AUCTIONS

The Drinking Water Quality and Compliance Report, and other information on the Village of Alida’s Water & Sewage Works, as required under The Municipalities Regulations, is available for viewing at the Village Office. The total combined water & sewage works revenue for 2020 was $66,751.00, (which includes a grant of $10,620.00 under the New Deal Gas Tax Fund Program), while total operating expenditures were $89,202.00. Comparison of water & sewage works revenues to expenditures plus debt payments, expressed as a ratio, is .7483. This means that for 2020, water & sewage works revenues covered 74.83% of the total expenditures. Water and sewer systems should be financially self-sufficient and in order to restore self-sufficiency to our waterworks system, council is contemplating an increase in rates to recover the costs of providing water and sewer services. All revenue generated from the utility bills is used to maintain and operate the water and sewer systems. The full amount of any utility surpluses is placed in the specified reserve for future capital work on the utility to establish a fund for replacement/ repair of aging infrastructure. A 45kw propane fuel back-up generator was installed at the Water Treatment Plant in 2020 at a cost of $44,573.00. The installation of a generator will help mitigate the effects of power failures and will power essential plant equipment until the main utility power is restored. The Village is required to submit weekly samples to the provincial laboratory for bacteriological testing and every three months the water in the water distribution system is to be tested for Trihalomethanes and Haloacetic acids. Once every two years samples are collected from the water distribution system for General Chemical and Health & Toxicity analysis. In 2020, the Turbidity at the Water Treatment Plant was between .06 and .16. Turbidity is a measure of water treatment efficiency. The limit is 1.0 NTU.

Kenosee Superslides opening for another summer of fun By Kaitlyn Meisner Kenosee Superslides has announced that they will be opening this year — hopefully by the July long weekend. The owners feel optimistic about this summer, despite the challenges of last year, and despite present challenges due to COVID-19 restrictions.  The waterpark is preparing to be inspected and getting organized for this coming season. The plan is to have everything ready before

Canada Day. The concession stand will hopefully be up and running before then, for anyone who wishes to stop by and get a bite to eat.    There have been difficulties in planning this season. As of now, it is looking like the slides will be restricted to 150 guests at a time. Nevertheless, Jan Armstrong explained that the guidelines are pretty much the same as last year.   “And as the COVID restrictions lift … with the different tiers that

Wawota weekly news Submitted by Myrna Olson Sympathy to family and friends of Patsy Jacques, who passed away on May 31 at the SEIC Centre in Moosomin. She was 80 years old and leaves a husband Rene and family of Heather, Adrien, Ava, Jeannie and the late Sheree and their families. A private funeral service will be held at a later date. A bridal shower was held at Carlyle on June 5 in honour of Amy Jackson. Amy will become the bride of Carson Brady at Saskaire, Carlyle on June 26. The Wawota branch of the Royal Canadian Legion held a successful hamburger, fries and coleslaw fundraiser June 2. Over 90 people enjoyed the meal.

Happy birthday to a former Wawota resident, Dorothy Mielitz, on her 104th birthday on June 2. Dorothy is a resident of the Moosomin Long Care Home. Lori Kemmer from Watrous spent a few days visiting with her mother Kay Dorrance, sister and brother, Rhonda and Dan Dorrance, last week. Congratulations to Hayley Down who, after completing six years of study, graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine, with a doctorate in veterinary medicine. She is employed at Valleyflats Veterinary Service in Moosomin. Now, with COVID restrictions being eased and more visiting is allowed, I would appreciate you sharing your news with me.

they’ve got, hopefully by mid-July we’ll have no restrictions at all … We just have to follow the current COVID rules to see where it goes,” Jan said, as he discussed Saskatchewan’s reopening plan. The owners of Kenosee Superslides are hopeful for this year, despite last year’s difficulties due to COVID-19. There was a drop in revenue, due to frequent shutdowns and COVID-19 guest restrictions, but Jan explained that there’s still been so much support from people within the province, especially on social media. He hopes that this support will continue, especially because he knows how much the

Kenosee Superslides hopes to be open for the Canada Day long weekend. Superslides contribute to the tourism and recreation industries in the Kenosee Lake area, attracting about 50,00070,000 people in a normal year. “I hope that people just recognize…how important this park is to the area and show support. We’ve been getting so much support, so I

didn’t want to ask that, because the support is there. When we’re dropping videos, they’re getting tens of thousands of views.” “I think the people who support this park … appreciate what Harvey (co-owner Harvey Armstrong) and I are trying to do now with the park and are showing support

for the love that we have for this park. It’s not about buying a business and making money — that’s not what it’s about … it’s more than us. It’s so much better than two guys running a waterpark. It affects so many more people in the area … And we just want to do the best we can … for the people it affects.”

Ups and downs of the past week I found it hard to choose a theme for this week’s article, not because there weren’t ideas in my head but rather that there were so many. On a positive note, our son arrived this weekend for a short but most welcome visit. On a more sombre note, it’s been months since we first planned a gettogether. COVID restrictions kyboshed that one, but back to a positive note, this much anticipated time is Len and his wife’s added demonstration of their love and care to us.  As if we haven’t heard enough of COVID, it’s great to see that our provincial number of cases continues to decline.

One not-so-celebratory aspect of this is that there still are folks who refuse to acknowledge the severity of the pandemic and consequently, who refuse to take precautionary measures as stressed by our provincial government. Above all of this, however, is the gut wrenching and heartbreaking revelations of the pain and death of so many Indigenous children forced into residential schools. We live fairly close to a First Nations territory and I have a number of friends from there. In speaking with them, I’m amazed at the strength they’ve displayed in choosing to move forward. Their local government and ours

work together on a number of projects and I am extremely proud of all of those involved. Divisions and challenges have faced humanity throughout all of history. I doubt that there is anyone reading this article who hasn’t come face-to-face with seemingly insurmountable difficulties nor, hopefully, with times of great joy and rejoicing. Ups and downs we call them.  Let’s never forget that belonging to Jesus Christ doesn’t exempt us from the severity of the

Maryfleld Sunrise Villa news Submitted by Betty Walker It's hard to believe another week has gone by and I know not where. Of course, the weather was the topic this week with extreme heat and searing hot winds, but we finally got cooler temperatures and some much needed showers. Our courtyard Is more beautiful everyday, the flowering lilac tree, hostas and ferns are becoming quite the show and the bedding plants give us some colour. The raised garden boxes are growing nicely, I was so afraid the wind would harm the plants but they seem okay. Thank you to the Maryfleld Lions Club,

Maryfield Rec. Board, Tracy Olson, Westwood Garden Centre, Miss Cook and her Maryfield High School lPAA class of Hayden, Parker and Cassldy and anyone else who helped In any way. The courtyard is begging for some more visitors. We can now have four visitors outside and after June 20, if things continue to be okay, then we can have nine. So give us a call and we'll meet you out there. Of course COVID-19 rules of masking, signing in at front door and hand hygiene apply. Things inside are as usual and always good. Till next time, be safe and follow the rules as we are beginning to see a light at the end of the tunnel.
