It’s great to get back into the swing of things at the Bobby Vargo Memorial Slo Pitch Tournament By Laura Kish What another great slo-pitch tournament in Kipling, remembering the late Bobby Vargo, son of Glen and Lynn, brother to Ashley and Austin, husband to KaAnn and father to Hudson and Emmersyn. Bobby had a love for his family and friends and for sports, especially hockey, baseball and slo-pitch. That is why this tournament is held in his honour. After spending the past 16 months with COVID restrictions, it was a great day for one of the first events to take place in Kipling – the ninth annual Bobby Vargo Memorial Slo Pitch Tournament. One of Bobby’s favourite teams was the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers, hence the flags in the field and family and friends donning the colors of the team.

Every year the Vargo family puts together a scrapbook of pictures from past tournaments, which are also on display with the album accumulating more and more memories with each passing year. Although the day was a hot and windy one that didn’t stop anyone from having the fun they came for. Players on each of the 10 teams entered has connections to the Vargo family. Teams were divided once again into three divisions including: Hazel County 605s, Kookshow Kids, Rusty Beavers, Brew Jays, Tea Baggers, Here 4 Beer, Flipping Bats, Master Batters and DOA. One new team, Fungi, this year was made up of Kipling Grade 11 and 12 students. “The nice thing about that team is those kids have been coming here since we started and now they’ve

Kenosee Superslides closed until further notice By Emily Klatt The Kenosee Superslides are once again facing delays in opening for the 2021 season. Co-owner Jan Armstrong announced last week that the waterpark would no longer be opening on July 11 as originally planned, and that it would remain closed to the public until further notice. This statement remained in effect at the time of the Observer’s publication. The announcement was made by Armstrong in a video posted to social media on the eve-

ning of July 10. In the video, Armstrong said the closure was due to “circumstances outside of [their] control.” A statement was also posted on the Kenosee Superslides website. In a Facebook Live video posted July 13, Armstrong claimed that the park’s inability to open was because the Saskatchewan Health Authority had not yet issued the Kenosee Superslides a business licence. A future edition of the Observer will have Kenosee Superslides. more on this story.

Matthewson & Co. creates new bursaries to give back By Kaitlyn Meisner Matthewson & Co., formally known as the Sustainability Project, has launched an annual program of bursaries in order to help people in small communities start a new chapter in their lives. In total, there were three $500 bursaries offered to individuals in communities with a population of 5,000 or less in Manitoba, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. The first bursary would go to someone who was graduating high school and planned to enter post-secondary education. The second would go to a “non-traditional” student—some-

one who had graduated high school a while ago and wished to return to or begin post-secondary education. Lastly, the third one would go to someone who was graduating high school and wanted to start their own business. All the applicants were required to write an essay that gave details like the person’s career aspirations, but mainly, the essay was supposed to focus on community and volunteer experience. This was in keeping with Matthewson and Co.’s ideals about building community. They weren’t supposed to be scholarships focused on academics, but rather, the individual’s involve-

ment and service in their community. Anna Beaulieu, who helped create the bursary application requirements and screened the various applicants, explained that the bursaries were in line with everything that the company stands for. “At Matthewson and Company it’s our…mission to build community, so we believe that giving back to the communities…is important.” Matthewson & Co. is a business based in Carlyle which is focused on helping small communities thrive. It was started by Lorri Matthewson in order to fill a gap that was present in supporting small communities. Most of the time, communities

have great potential, but aren’t able to easily access the resources they needed to succeed. Therefore, Matthewson & Co. aims to provide support for small communities through various practical services such as asset management, strategic planning, grant writing, and community economic development planning. Basically, they do the things a community economic development officer would do and help small population communities reach their full potential through proper planning and expertise. In congruence with this vision, Matthewson & Co. decided they would give back to small communities by creating the

Väderstad in Langbank looks to recruit more employees for their production line By Laura Kish “Väderstad farm machinery is built to create the optimum environment, allowing for perfect emergence in your field. Whether it’s cultivation, seedbed preparation or seed placement, our vision is to ensure perfect emergence to maximize yield. Together we will make you an even more successful farmer.” Väderstad, one of the world’s leading companies in seeding, planting and tillage, is set to ramp up production once again at the production facility in Langbank. Strong commodity prices and growing markets have led to an increased demand of products manufactured at the facility. To meet these growing demands Väderstad Industries continues to ramp up the production process by actively recruiting for multiple positions in the production plant As Väderstad Indus-

tries continue to ramp up production, the company held a production job fair in Moosomin recently to fill these production opportunities. “The job fair went moderately well,” says Tatum Larose, talent acquisition specialist with Väderstad Industries. “Although it wasn’t as big a turnout as we hoped, we were able to fill six positions.” “We’re looking to fill production positions up until November.” Väderstad implemented a second shift in the evening in late June to the daily schedule with shift premiums. With just over 200 employees today, the company is looking for more recruits. “We’re hoping to fill many positions mainly in the production facility including welders, assembly technicians, paint prep technicians, and material handlers in the warehouse,” explains Larose.

Väderstad employees work steadily to build as many units as possible to meet the growing market demands.

Benefits to working at Väderstad Industries include a company matched pension, group health benefits, a health spending account, and 48 hours of paid discretionary time off. In order to meet production demands Väderstad is looking to hire hardworking and motivated individuals for multiple production positions. “We are increasing production volumes 60 per cent to meet current market demands,” explains Jared Varjassy,

manufacturing director at Väderstad. “Currently we have job openings for 55 people throughout various parts of our business to help us achieve our output requirement,” says Varjassy. “Our units get delivered to customers throughout the world with the strongest concentration being Western Canada,” explains Varjassy. “Some of the countries we ship to include the U.S.A., Australia, Sweden, Ukraine and Russia.”

Lorri Matthewson, who had the idea of doing the bursaries, explained one of her main motivations for offering the bursaries was that she felt they should really sow back into the community. “We’ve had a lot of really positive success in the last … several years … we’ve been really, really busy—crazy busy—

and we have been for a while, so for us it was a way of giving back what we could.” Unfortunately, no one applied for the bursary for a high school student aiming to start a business, but Matthewson & Co. plans on doubling this bursary next year in order to hopefully get more applicants. For the other bursaries, the winners will be announced on July 15.

The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.- Nelson Mandela

Sask. Party gov’t must guard against political traps By Murray Mandryk The benefit of an older, more experienced government is they tend not to make the same mistakes as newer ones. It’s why they get re-elected. Newer governments are inclined to change direction for the sake of change … sometimes, even when there’s no good reason for change. Older governments are more inclined to pursue the path that keeps getting them re-elected. The problem, however, is things do change when it comes to public needs and, especially, when it comes to anticipating public needs down the road. It’s tough for any government to anticipate those future needs, but the specific problem for older governments — especially ones without much fear of being removed from office any time soon — is falling into the trap nothing ever really needs to change. As a result, they lean into what’s been working for them — what has gotten them re-elected. It’s good politics, it but it also means that old governments are even less inclined to see change coming and start to think about what needs to be done to address a changing world. Premier Scott Moe last week called the a federal government decision to reject the Sask. Party government’s alternative plan for carbon pricing “arbitrary and political.” Saskatchewan’s request for a federal review came after it lost its Supreme Court challenge opposing the carbon tax, leaving this government without political options. Moe argued that what it had proposed is about the same as New Brunswick’s plan that uses proceeds from the carbon tax to offset gas prices. Now, it’s easy out here to agree with Moe because Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government carbon tax policies have been politically designed to be more palatable in Eastern Canada that has a greater voting population and less carbon-intense industry. Also, early years of this federal carbon tax have offered little to indicate they are actually doing much to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. That said, the one thing about Ottawa jacking up atthe-pump costs of gas is that it makes it more difficult to suggest that the carbon tax isn’t about reducing carbon emissions. The bottom line is that the Sask. Party government knew that new benchmarks were coming and had time to present something that wouldn’t have been rejected. So either no form of carbon pricing — something that the Sask. Party government has supported, in general, since 2010 — is workable or this government would rather keep up the political fight. It seems very likely that — at least part of Moe’s expressed concerns — have something to do with a desire to keep up this political fight and not deal with costly climate change initiatives. It’s good politics out here — helpful to both the Sask. Party and helpful to the federal Conservative party — to simply keep fighting with Trudeau and the Liberals. Were there other green options that might have created jobs in Saskatchewan? Quite likely.But the problem with the environment being part of the federal Liberal government brand is that it means there’s even less incentive for the Sask. Party government to invest in costly GHG reduction programs. In unveiling its recent 2020-2021 SaskPower annual report showing a $160-million profit — $45 million less than last year — Crown electrical utility acknowledged a $5-billion, 30-year agreement to by power from Manitoba Hydro. Were there other green options that might have created jobs in Saskatchewan? Quite likely. But old governments sometimes don’t consider things like that.


Dumbo had it going on

Shelley Luedtke The MC was someone I knew well so when he introduced me by saying I have really big ears, I didn’t take offence. Had he been talking about the physical size of my auditory organs I might have objected to the description, but he quickly added it was because I was seen as someone who was a listener. The characterization was one I appreciated, even valued, because the nature of my job at that time was such that being an effective listener was essential. So to be described as having big ears was a good thing. I hope the same can be said of all of us today because we are going to need large lobes as we face what needs to be confronted in our province and nation. The first time I recall encountering racism was as a Grade 4 student when a girl named Mei joined our all-Caucasian

classroom. Her family had moved to our city from Asia and although some were eager to meet and welcome her to our school, jokes and slurs were made at her expense regularly. We were young kids but I can still remember the sick feeling I got in my stomach when she was laughed at or excluded. A few of us did the only thing we knew how to do: invite her to hang out and get to know her. Over time we learned a bit about her and her background. It wasn’t easy. We didn’t share a language in common at first, but somehow we made it work. So why is it then, that when we have shared language at our disposable, too often we stay silent, or we wield that language as a destructive weapon rather than a conciliatory tool? On Canada Day I had the privilege of watching Terrance Littletent and a group of drummers perform a hoop dance. But it was so much more than a performance. Littletent took the opportunity to share the history behind what he does; explaining that everything is held within the hoop, and each movement contains a depth of meaning. I have seen hoop dancers many times in the past but I have never left with such an under-

standing of what I was seeing. He also shared the five life lessons he was taught as a child; ones that he now teaches in return. Lesson number one: we need to listen. A Canadian composer and scholar named R. Murray Schafer is acknowledged as the founder of acoustic ecology. He sought to draw attention to the sound environment and its impact on us. His work in the 1960s and 1970s led to the establishment of the World Soundscape Project which involved an analysis of soundscapes in Canada and around the world. In honor of his work, July 18 (Schafer’s birthday) has been named World Listening Day to get us to think about what our ears take in every day. The day is to encourage us to set time aside and simply…listen. Imagine a day where we talked less and listened more. A day in which we stayed silent and took time to hear from those around us. Imagine how much better we would understand each other if we made a commitment to hearing the stories others need to tell. It is said that 85 per cent of what we learn we do so through listening. That’s huge. So let’s

keep listening. Listening to those from different races and cultures. Listening to those whose life experiences are different from our own. Listening to those who are asking simply to be heard. Being an effective listener means refraining from judgements. It requires putting aside what we think we know and holding onto our thoughts until we hear what the other person is saying. Think about what that could do toward battling injustice, discrimination, racism and bigotry. So much could be better understood if we used one of the most powerful tools at our disposal—listening. Yes, it is easier to inflame than inform but it doesn’t get us anywhere. And while it might feel good to unleash, we know it’s far more constructive to educate. There are many committed to doing just that, so when we encounter people such as Mei, Terrance and everyone else who has something to contribute, let’s do the best thing possible in response: listen. While having outsized features might not be considered the most attractive, it could be that having really big ears is what makes us truly beautiful. That’s my outlook.

Arcola rodeo is back for this year By Kaitlyn Meisner



The annual rodeo in Arcola, which was cancelled last year due to COVID-19, will be returning this summer on Aug. 13. The event will take place at the arena — which is across from Arcola Prairie Place Complex—and it will start at 6:30 p.m. However, people are encouraged to come early to make sure they are settled in their seats before the rodeo begins. The rodeo will consist of many disciplines, including saddle bronc, bareback, bull riding, novice saddle bronc, novice bareback, steer riding, and junior bull riding which are all sanctioned and approved by the Canadian Cowboys Association. In addition, the rodeo will also have barrel racing and local favourites like mutton busting, wild ponies, and the wild horse race. The wild horse race is especially a favourite as people are able to bet on the teams, which are all made up of locals from the community and surrounding area. Besides the main rodeo activities, there will also be plenty of other things to do for the day, making the price of $20 for admission a bargain. There will be food and craft vendors there with many options. Some of the food to expect would be ice cream, cotton candy, hamburgers and hotdogs. The beer gardens will also be set up in the arena so people can enjoy a beverage in the

gardens while watching the rodeo. It is also important to note that there are accommodations for seniors, especially as there is an area next to the arena for seniors to park and watch the action in the arena without having to leave their vehicles. The rodeo’s com-

mittee was not sure how this year’s plans would look, but once they heard the news about regulations being lifted on July 11, they hurried to plan the rodeo. Now the rodeo will be an excellent way for people to celebrate the return to normal. Chris Nadesh, the president of the rodeo

committee, explained that it’s a return to normal which makes this rodeo so special. He emphasized how it’s a way for people in Arcola and surrounding communities to connect back to their roots. “This is a fine display of western heritage. A lot of us come from rural farms,

ranches — even if we’re in town now our heritage all goes back to the farm, when you think about it. A lot of that heritage has to do with horses and cowboyin’ and this is what our forefathers out west used to do — they used to get together and do [this] for fun, so … in a way it’s a return to nor-

malcy while celebrating our western heritage at the same time. “So that’s why I think it’s really important for people to get out and support your local rodeos and also, you know, kind of touch base with your western heritage at the same time, all while returning back to normal.” 21075DS1 21075DS2

Golfer of the Week: Bertha Isleifson Vargo tournament was a success The Observer’s latest Golfer of the Week is Carlyle resident Bertha Isleifson. Isleifson is a member of the Carlyle Golf Course board of directors, where she serves on the clubhouse committee and helps to organize the weekly ladies’ night on Tuesday evenings. Isleifson has been golfing since she was a teenager, when she got her start playing on a small sand green golf course in her hometown of Montmartre. Although she said work prevents her from golfing as much as she would like, Isleifson said she still manages to hit the course at least two to three nights a week during the warmer months. “I love being outside. I love our

course ... it’s so well maintained. It’s just beautiful out there. You get to [see] the birds in the nature and it’s just I don’t know, it really feels good to be out there,” she said. Golf is a family affair for Isleifson. Her husband and children are all avid golfers and her parents, aged 87 and 92, still play occasionally as well. “My kids love to golf … that’s one of the first things we do when the kids come home. Yeah, it’s a big family sport for us for sure,” Isleifson said. For those who are interested in learning to golf but don’t know where to start, Isleifson said her best advice is to keep a positive attitude and find someone to help you learn the basics. “Just … give it a try,” Isleifson said. “Don’t expect to be the best at it when you start, but just keep working at it.”

Robbie Spencer won the Nutrien Ag Solutions Home Run Derby Sunday night, hitting 13 homers in the final round. He accepts the trophy from Glen Vargo, presenting on behalf of Nutrien Ag Solutions. Photo by Laura Kish « A1 derby in the evening were longtime family friends Kristen Batters and April Frater throwing the ceremonial pitch to begin the event. The derby had 12 participants and was commentated by Marshall Stender. Gordon Kish volunteered his services as auctioneer at the Calcutta, which brought in a total of $8,100. Taking first place was Robbie Spencer with 13 home runs in the final round. In second place was Tyler Vargo with 11 dingers, third was Mike Meszaros with three and fourth was Nathan Yuzicappi with two. After a long hot and windy day of ball games Flipping Bats claimed the championship trophy over Hazel County 605s. Team DOA beat the Kookshow Kids in the A consolation. Profits from this year’s tourney are once again going to various groups and organizations in Kipling. Over $120,000 has been raised since this tournament began, putting the funds back into community projects.

Daryl Harrison Member of the Legislative Assembly for Cannington Constituency


“We packed six months of planning into 3 weeks,” explains Glen who plays a major role on the planning committee. “Since July 11th was the day to lift restrictions, the planning committee decided to go ahead with a one-day tournament,” explains Glen. “It’s worked out pretty good.” Glen goes on to say: “The sponsorship has been amazing. Once they (businesses) found out we were going ahead with the tournament, they came on board like crazy. They know it’s for the community … all the dollars raised stay here.” “They’ve allowed us to do what we do.” “I think people were ready to just enjoy themselves and be around other people. Get out and do something and visit.” “For the time we put into planning this year,

it came together pretty well.” Glen says that approximately $45,000 from past tournaments has been put towards the ball diamonds so they’re in pretty good shape. An emotional Glen delivered his speech on behalf of the Vargo family at the end of the tournament. “I get all choked up as this is a special time for our family to have everyone here with us today to celebrate our son and his memory and it humbles us again to have such a great turnout. We did have some obstacles in planning this year’s tournament. Once again, thanks to all our sponsors.” The committee is looking forward to celebrating their 10th anniversary of this event next year on the Canada Day long weekend.

Jeff Hirtle 1966 - 2021

With broken hearts, we announce the passing of Jeff Hirtle on Thursday, July 8, 2021, at Arcola Hospital. Jeff is survived by his sons Shane (Kendra) Hirtle and Jesse Hirtle, grandson Cohen Hirtle, his mother Gwen Hirtle, sister Wendy (Ken) Slade, and sweetheart Laura Dunn. He is predeceased by his father, Wayne Hirtle. Jeff began school in Carlyle, SK and then completed elementary and high school in Wawota after the family moved to the farm. After high school, Jeff attended Brandon College to take a one year course in auto bodywork. His dabbling in bodywork and farming soon gave way to work as a battery operator. Most of his career continued in the oilfield industry working as a superintendent and a consultant where he was greatly respected. Jeff enjoyed many outdoor passions including hunting, archery, boating, fishing and snowmobiling. His interest in fitness drew him to many years of involvement with the Moose Mountain Wado-Kai Karate Club in Carlyle. He enjoyed the challenge of the competitions and the special connections gained while teaching the younger members. Jeff was a perfectionist and his love of precision could be seen in anything he did, whether it was a perfectly manicured lawn or any construction project he put his hands to. We will always carry our memories of Jeff close to our hearts. In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes may be made to the Arcola Hospital, the Regina Humane Society or a charity of your choice. A celebration of his life will be held on the Hirtle Family farm (GPS: 49.7583619,-102.1216136) on Friday July 16, 2021 from 5-8 pm. Dress is casual.

Letter to the Editor

Unmarked graves of children are tragic The editor: In the last three weeks I have submitted articles to the Carlyle Observer, our local community newspaper, regarding items of interest to the Royal Canadian Legion and the military history of Canada. I am doing this in my position with the Legion in Carlyle and in an effort to help people remember and honour those who served this land and who sacrificed so much. This

is something that even the nation at large supports. To this day, when the remains of a member of the military are located in an old battlefield, they are exhumed, repatriated and buried with full military honours. This is as it should be. We must never forget the men and women who served, fought and, in some cases, gave their lives for their country. We must also honour their brothers and sisters

in arms who came home damaged physically, mentally, or emotionally, and aid them in any way we can. In the same three weeks that I have been submitting articles about the military, approximately 1,000 unmarked graves have been identified in our country. All indications are that this is just the tip of the iceberg. Had these been the mass graves of a Canadian Military Regiment near a European or Asian battlefield, the Canadian government would be moving Heaven and Earth to honour those interred there. But these unmarked graves are those of children, whose lives were sacrificed not for freedom, not for our land, but because of who they were. They were Indigenous children, whose lives were forfeit because of who and what they were. I have to repeat that because I am having so much trouble with processing it. These were children of First Nations

parents whose lives were lost because of that parentage. Unlike some of our parents or grandparents who received telegrams or letters from the military informing them that their son or daughter had been killed or was presumed dead in a battle, most of the parents of the children who are buried in these unmarked graves, received no official notice of the fate of their children. The people to whom those children were entrusted, regarded them with so little respect that they felt no need to mark their final resting place or let their parents know what happened. This is in addition to the various kinds of abuse those children suffered at their hands while alive. Their brothers and sisters who survived the residential schools have suffered and are suffering trauma in no way lesser than those who survived war. For the military personnel who are damaged

mentally and emotionally there is recognition of post-traumatic stress disorder and aid available, although probably not enough. For those who suffered mental and emotional damage due to their experiences in residential schools, while at very vulnerable, impressionable age, there has been virtually none. Those who went to war did so, mostly voluntarily, knowing full well the risk of death and injury that they were facing. The same cannot be said for the children lying in unmarked graves near residential schools or the survivors of that system. Our nation proudly respects and honours those who served in the military. The residential school system is nothing to be proud of, in fact it is a black mark of shame for Canada, however the children who were victims of that system should not, must not, be relegated to becoming a footnote in history. Their loss and the injuries of all other children, and their fami-

lies, who were victimized should be respected and honoured as well, while recognising the complicity of our country in this horrific system. It is very hard to recognize that your land has committed an atrocity, and to make amends for it, however it must be done. I am using this letter to ask you and your government to work tirelessly with the First Nations in this country to document and honour those whose lives were lost or destroyed at residential schools and to do what is necessary to make the necessary amends to the people impacted by those residential schools. This is no less than would be done for military personnel and there is no rational justification for doing less for the victims and survivors of residential schools. “We are all treaty people.” “Lest we forget.” Doug Waldner Carlyle

Painter and multidisciplinary artist Eli Barsi is the latest Saskatchewan creator to pay a visit to the Artist’s Colony cabins in Moose Mountain Provincial Park this summer. During her two week stay at the Artist’s colony, Barsi will be exhibiting and selling her paintings as well as creating new ones. She works primarily with acrylic paint, along with some mixed media using watercolour pencils and oil-based pastels. Born and raised on a farm near Kennedy, Barsi draws much of her inspiration from the prairie landscape. “My art is very Canadian. I love painting landscapes [and] old buildings. I love the nostalgia of Canada so I like to keep that alive in my paintings, especially the prairie scenes with old barns and our old grain elevators,” Barsi said. Barsi’s prairie inspiration even extends to some of the materials she uses as canvases for her paintings. “Besides painting on

Multi-disciplinary artist Eli Barsi takes inspiration from the Saskatchewan landscape. Photo submitted canvas ... I love to paint on things that I dig up from the prairies like old gas cans, cattle skulls, bison skulls, old kettles, as well as I paint on old farmhouse and barn windows,” Barsi said. A lot of those [paintings] are very special because they’re a piece of the past painted on a piece of the past. This is Barsi’s fifth summer at the Artist’s Colony as a painter, but one of countless summers as a visitor and admirer of the other artists who have worked there

in the past. “I’ve always been interested and always appreciated other people’s art and love coming to the Artist’s Colony when I was younger and looking at all of the beautiful artwork,” Barsi said. Barsi now lives in Moosomin where in June 2020, she opened a store called the Prairie Girl Gallery and Gift Boutique. The Prairie Girl Gallery is located at 1011 S Front Street in the historic McNaughton building. In addition to her

work as a painter, Barsi is an award-winning professional musician who has been playing and touring for more than 35 years. Her 18th album comes out later this year. Barsi is also the author of two books: Poems & Paintings From a Prairie Girl, a collection of poetry and Beneath the Prairie Sky, a children’s picture book. Overall, Barsi is grateful to be able to spend time working alongside other talented artists in the beautiful setting that is Moose Mountain Provincial Park. “Just to be in this environment is so special to me and I find myself extra inspired when I’m here … it’s just a very creative space, I find it very peaceful and so enjoyable. I love every minute of it,” she said. Barsi will be at the Moose Mountain Provincial Park Artist’s Colony cabins from July 13 to July 26. She plans to have her cabin open daily from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. More information about Barsi’s art, music and writing can be found at elibarsi.com.
