From Front page - White Bear Pow Wow Lynne Bell

Observer Staff

The White Bear First Nations annual pow wow celebrated a new beginning - by returning to its roots. The pow wow which returned this year after a one-year hiatus has most recently been staged on the grounds of the Bear Claw Casino. However, thanks to Pow Wow Chairperson Wanda Lonechild and a core committee of volunteers, the sacred celebration returned to the traditional pow wow grounds at White Bear, from Friday, July 6 through Sunday, July 8. “Everybody loves it out here and everybody wanted it here,” says Lonechild. “We all worked hard to get the grounds ready.” “On Thursday, we had quite a few people here already to stay for pow wow and by Friday, it had doubled,” she says. “On Friday night, the first night, I was almost in tears, but I stopped myself. The committee were all shaking hands. We couldn’t believe we’d accomplished it.” “Everybody was hugging all night.”

White Bear First Nations Chief Nathan Pasap thanked the pow wow commiteee, saying: “I’d like to thank the committee. It’s beautiful what they achieved and we thank them for bringing the pow wow back to White Bear.” The pow wow welcomed dancers, drummers and visitors from throughout Canada and the U.S. - including particpants and spectators from as far away as Oklahoma. Competitors vied for $95,800 total prize money with men competing in the Traditional, Grass, Fancy Bustle and Chicken categories; while women danced in the Traditional, Jingle and Fancy Shawl categories, in spite of the oppressive heat and humidity. Dancers and drummers ranged in age from seven-years-old to over 55 and although the prize money was a factor, cameraderie trumped competition, as veterans and elders were honoured and elders guided little ones in Indigenous traditions. Vice-President of the Saskatchewan First Nations Veterans Association (SFNVA), Ron

“Rocky” Redwood says: “I think it is powerful to have the pow wow back on the Nation. I’m grateful to White Bear for that.” “Not only do we gather here, but it gives everyone a chance to meet our veterans and learn about their contributions,” explains Redwood, who served in Vietnam. “Tony Lerat, the SFNVA President is here today,” says Redwood. “He served with the Queen’s Own Rifles in France. And Tony Cote served with the 81st Field Regiment RCA (Royal Canadian Artillery) and in 1974, he founded the Saskatchewan Indigenous Summer and Winter Games.” “It’s important in our culture to honour our veterans and White Bear has always done that.” FSIN Third ViceChief Dutch Lerat said of the pow wow: “This is our culture. This is what it means to be First Nations. This is what it is to be Indian.” “It’s healing; it’s the little ones dancing; it’s the drums; it’s the healing within.” “I am very happy to be here today after 10 or

12 years,” added Lerat. “My mother came here it was one of her favourite pow wows.” The pow wow was already deemed a success well before its final day. White Bear Band councillor Bernard Shepherd told the crowd on Saturday: “On behalf of Chief and Council, thank you everybody who came out to the pow wow. Six weeks ago, these grounds didn’t look like this. We have some really committed people here.” “This is a new beginning for our pow wow and we’d love to see you all back here again.”

White Bear First Nations Chief Nathan Pasap welcomes dignitaries, veterans and other honoured guests and dancers, drummers, visitors and spectators to White Bear’s Pow Wow. The pow wow was a special one, as the celebration returned to White Bear First Nations’ traditional pow wow grounds. Chief Pasap also extended special thanks to the pow wow committee - led by Chairperson Wanda Lonechild - for making the pow wow possible.

Dedicated volunteer wins Junior Citizen Award By David WIllberg/ Estevan Mercury It’s was a week that Presley Onufreychuk will never forget. On June 25 afternoon, the Manor resident wrote her final Grade 12 exam. She’s looking forward to studying pre-social work at the University of Regina this fall. The day before her last exam, she was presented with a provincial Junior Citizen Award. The honour is handed out by the Saskatchewan Weekly Newspapers Association (SWNA), in partnership with SaskPower. The ceremony was held at Government House in Regina. Only four Saskatchewan youths are presented with the Junior Citizen Award each year. Each honouree receives a $3,000 bursary from SaskPower to be used for post-secondary studies. “I enjoy doing different volunteer activi-

ties, and it’s nice to be noticed,” she said in an interview with Lifestyles. Onufreychuk has found many ways to be involved in the Manor area. Among them is her effort to organize a skate-a-thon for the village’s rink on Feb. 19. Her efforts raised $2,500 for the arena’s operations. “We have this beautiful rink in Manor, and we’re a smaller community, and so I wanted to have a way to get people to our rink, but at the same time, have a fundraiser for the rink. It turned out awesome, so many families made comments of how it was the perfect Family Day (activity), and that they hoped it could be a tradition.” Onufreychuk was concerned that young people wouldn’t raise money for a skate-athon, so she went to businesses in the area for donations and raffle

prizes. She received gift baskets, gift cards and more, creating a big raffle table that accounted for more than half of the funds raised. She was also on a mission trip to Mexico in early April through onechurch.ca in Carlyle. Team members painted an orphanage and delivered food hampers, among other activities. She was away from home and her family for 10 days. “I learned just how amazing it is to be where we are, and live in Canada, and have all the utilities that we have. It was an eye-opener.” In the community, she has volunteered with the village’s fowl supper, and helped out with children’s games during the annual Professional Bull Riders’ rodeo in Manor. Onufreychuk has also assisted with activities at Manor School and at the Moose Mountain Lodge in Carlyle. And she has travelled to Regina on a couple of occasions to help out at Soul’s Harbour. “They all have so many different reasons for why I chose to do them, but one of the biggest things is I am so grateful for everything that I have, and so I always feel that it’s my job to make sure that other people have that same gratefulness,” said Onufreychuk. A community can’t run without volunteers, she said, so it’s very important for people to help out. “For a small town, it takes a lot of hands to make things happen,” she said. The Junior Citizen ceremony was a great experience. It was exciting to be there, meet

Photos were taken with Lieutenant Governor Tom Malloy, and representatives of SWNA and SaskPower. A reception followed the ceremony. She gives credit to both her school and her family for encouraging her to be active as a volunteer. Much of her time has been dedicated to her school. “Manor School has been the basis of what

originally made me want to be a more active member of the community,” said Onufreychuk. As for her family, her mother has always been a huge supporter of everything she has done. “My entire family was a huge help during the skate-a-thon, because it ended up being an even bigger task than what I thought it would be, so I needed extra hands,” said Onufreychuk. Before she had her driver’s licence, her grandmother always drove her wherever she needed to go to volunteer. Onufreychuk expects she will continue to be active as a volun-

teer once she starts university in the fall. “I am excited to have different volunteer experiences once I’m in a bigger area, where I’m in a city where there are lots of places I can spend my time and volunteer my time.” She is also excited to continue to help out at Soul’s Harbour. And she is optimistic she will be able to help out in Manor during her summer holidays, and her other breaks in the school year. “I’m sure on any breaks I will find myself stopping in at the school, because our small school is such a family community,” she said. “I’ll miss it more than anything.”

This year, Carlyle’s Southern Plains Co-op distributed $1.7 million to its membership at the Co-op’s Equity Days Barbeque in Carlyle, Thursday, June 28. “Thanks to all of our members,” says Southern Plains Co-op Branch Manager, Derrick Edwards. “Without them, we couldn’t be the thriving business that we are.” Pictured taking a quick break from cheque distibution duties are: Southern Plains Co-op Board member Lynne Hewitt, Southern Plains Co-op Branch Manager Derrick Edwards and Southern Plains Co-op Director, Darcy Calder of Estevan.

Stay well rooted By Linda Wegner For the first time in a number of years, I’m truly excited about my vegetable garden. For one thing, I’m finally retired from my work as a business writer and now have time to spend weeding and nurturing both the flowers and edibles. Digging in the dirt never felt so good. Because my situation has changed I’ve been able to spend hours planting and pulling and while I admit it’s a job that’s never finished, it sure feels good to stand back and survey the results of my hard work. Next and as vital as time, is the fact that this year we applied new and rich loam to the

garden beds. Frankly, I can hardly believe how things have popped up. The cucumbers and squash are loaded with blossoms; the peas and bean vines are drooping with their respective crops. This afternoon I harvested our first cabbage. Yum, freshly made coleslaw with home-grown produce. Although loaded with flowers, the tomato plants are behind those of the neighbours but I’ll just have to trust that they, too, will reward us. I’ve learned that there are at least two essential elements to a successful garden: sufficient water and well-rooted plants. Hubby has been assigned the watering chores and his diligence,

combined with the occasional West Coast downpour, have so far taken care of the moisture demands; the soil and the water make for roots that go down deep. Vegetables flourish and flowers grow tall. I was reminded of these simply profound truths while reading Proverbs 12:3. “The root of the righteous cannot be moved”. Later in the chapter he mentions the second result: “…the root of the righteous yields fruit.” (12:12). Deep roots produce stability and healthy crops. Different results but the same principle, making me want to tend carefully to what grows in my heart.

Pause for Reflection

Friday, July 13, 2018

By Ken Rolheiser www.kenrolheiser.com

The Rock Parable and open doors time Peter picks up a huge rock. He sweats and staggers under its weight all afternoon. Then, Jesus calls them over to the edge of a stream and has them all throw their stones into the river. Again, Peter is put out, sulking, and thinking: “What! No bread!?” Jesus comes to him and gently asks him, “Peter, why are you upset? Who were you carrying the rock for?” Not once was Peter carrying that rock for Jesus…he was carrying it for himself, for what he would get. We need to ask ourselves, are we serv-

Elizabeth Elliot used to use a fictional parable (not from the Bible) that went something like this: One day, Jesus asked the disciples to pick up a rock and to follow him on a journey. Peter picks up a pebble, the least burdensome way to obey, and they journey all morning long. At lunchtime Jesus tells them to get their stones out, and he turns them all to bread. Peter is a bit put out, and he’s hungry. Then, after lunch, Jesus tells them Pick up another stone, “We’re going on another journey.” This

ing, following Jesus, for what we will get in return? Or do we follow because Jesus models it and asks us to love? What happens if we follow Jesus’ call because he has asked us? Now what is Jesus calling us to do today? There is little doubt our world needs healing, hope, forgiveness and love. We need to bring peace to the world. And Jesus promises to open the doors that will accomplish this. “I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can close” Revelation 3:8. It is true. We are given special talents for the good of all. They are not ours to waste. And Jesus provides the means for their use. The Holy Spirit will guide us and let us know if a door is closed. In Acts 16:6-7 Paul and Silas are travelling through the area of Phrygia and Galatia because the Holy Spirit had prevented them from preaching in Asia. Then coming to the borders of Mysia, they headed for Bithynia, but again the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them to go there. Matthew 7:7-8 tells us, “Continue to ask, and God will give to you. Continue to search, and you will find. Continue to knock, and the door will open for you. Yes, whoever continues to ask will receive. Whoever continues to look will find. And whoever continues to knock will have the door opened

Best to understand why teepees are there By Murray Mandryk Why there are teepees on the lawn across from the legislature in Regina is likely a more important question than why the teepees are still there. After having a least one teepee there for nearly five months now, many are asking: Why police are unwilling to enforce the bylaws prohibiting them? Are the Indian protestors getting special treatment? With all due respect, these are the wrong questions. If this were a simple matter of bylaw enforcement, it is the Provincial Capital Commission, the provincial body that replaced the old city-provincial Wascana Centre Authority that used to administer this city park, that has dropped the ball. While the PCC successfully got the the police to remove the original teepee last month, it likely should have requested the campsite be cleared in February when it first when it first went up in response to the Gerald Stanley not guilty verdict. It didn’t, perhaps because the Saskatchewan Party and the PCC recognized the sensitivity of the situation. One might recall the entire province was a bit of a power keg after the not-well-understood verdict in the death of Red Pheasant First Nation resident Colten Boushie. Certainly, Premier Scott Moe deserves much credit for reaching out to Boushie’s fam-

ily and the First Nation community as a whole to create better understanding. Nevertheless, the protestors still felt a need to be heard, to educate others on their issues including the historic treatment of aboriginal children and maybe even heal a little themselves. The legislative grounds are a place where people sometimes go to be heard by exercising their free speech _ whether we necessarily agree with what they have to say or not. This expression comes in the form of protest. And, quite often, the protestors violate park bylaws … or perhaps even other laws. The latter was clearly the case in February 200 when farmers demanding $300 million from the provincial government and a billion dollars, overall, stormed the legislature, chained the front doors and then conducted a nine dayand-night sit in. The Regina police let them be, even though they were obviously conducting a far more serious trespassing offence. It ended when the protest leaders, themselves, asked the police to break it up when things were getting out of control. (There was talk of threats being uttered.) Yes, this current protest camp has been around for much too long. Yes, it has grown in the past couple weeks at the at encouragement of of the Federation of Indigenous Sovereign Nations (FSIN) after the

T O P S S I H T E B D L U O C YOURS!

Regina Police removed the initial protestors and got them to temporarily take down the original teepee. One fears that the longer this camp stays, the great chance for resentment … or worse, unpleasant confrontation. The camp leadership should be cognizant of this. But it does seem clear the Regina police have acted wisely so as to avoid confrontation. And while there are those who will rightly argue that some of the protestors demands can’t be met, maybe it would serve us all well to take a moment to listen what they are actually asking. At a meeting with provincial cabinet last week, the protestors laid out a wish list of things they wanted. Some are less feasible, like a moratorium on adoption and any expansion of the foster care system. But others seem rather reasonable. They have asked for: “clear data on the number of children in child care and the duration of their care”, a “review of all permanent wards”, examination of “the use of in-home supervision in-lieu of apprehension”, a “full report on child care”, a cabinet visit to the Red Pheasant First Nation, as promised and a “cost analysis” of children in care with cheaper alternatives in mind. This is why the protest teepees are there. We should at least try to understand that.

Quote of the Week... “‘Cause a little bit of summer is what the whole year is all about.” - John Mayer

Equine sector still has significant impact on our economy

By Calvin Daniels When it comes to agriculture the equine sector sometimes seems to get lost. The sector is often seen more as a hobby, or perhaps falling into the realm of sport, than an agriculture enterprise, and there are some obvious reasons for being unsure exactly what box to check in terms of horses. But what should not be lost is the significant impact the horse industry has on our economy. The impact was brought into sharp focus again last week when attending the Yorkton Exhibition Association’s summer fair. Each day I drove down the road at the back of the grounds right through the middle of the parking for those involved in chuckwagon and chariot races. It is an impressive site seeing the semi-trailer units, horse trailers and campers sprawled across the grass, and the horse tethered out awaiting a chance to run the track. In talking to Kevin Gareau president of the Eastern Professional Chariot & Chuckwagon Association (EPCCA), I learned that there were 45 chuckwagons entered in the Yorkton show, and 53 chariots. A bit of math and I realized that would account for 286 horses on the grounds, add a few more carried as extras, or training purposes and it is easy to suggest 300 horses were on-site. Gareau said a young horse for racing might be purchased for $2,500, but the best were about $10,000. If you average that at a modest $5,000 the value of horses for racing in Yorkton was $1.5 million. Of course the horses, while the single most important component of racing, are only a small part of the cost of what is very much a hobby for drivers, but also an economic stimulator. Every hitch requires a wagon and harness, the horses need feed. A farrier will be needed to shoe the horses. On occasion a veterinarian will be required. And that is just to run the track. Drivers in the EPCCA come from all over the province. Gareau as an example is from Domreny, SK., which according to Google is about a 350 kilometre jaunt from Yorkton. Rolling a truck and trailer down the highway means gas purchases, flat tires that need fixing, and dozens of other pop up costs drivers will face as Gareau noted they hit some 18 communities for 40 days of racing each summer. There is also of course the cost of the trailers, many manufactured on the Prairies, and of trucks, and campers, barbecues and tarps and a hundred other things chuckwagon drivers and their families will require for life on the road from June through September each year. While the horse industry is not the critical aspect of farming it once was, it does remain a sector which sees dollars spreading through the local economy, with the chuckwagon and chariot sector a clear example of that.

Heart of the Moose Mountains

Doing more than following directions It can be the subject of humour or perhaps a shake-of-thehead-moment as we wonder: did we really need to be told that? It’s the instructions on products we use regularly that seem unnecessary, but ones companies feel the need to print to reduce the risk of liability. On a package of bread pudding with heating directions My Outlook comes the warning: Product will Shelley Luedtke be hot after heating. On a brand name sleep aid; Warning: May cause drowsiness. On a wire hanger; Caution: Do not swallow. It continues. On a 500-piece jigsaw puzzle: Some assembly required. On a toaster: Do not use underwater. On a bottle of hair dye: Do not use as ice cream topping. Some companies, perhaps in response to this need for extreme caution, have decided to have a bit of fun with their instructions. The label on a line of clothes says: Washing Instructions: machine wash cold, do not bleach, no softeners; Life Instructions: lawyer up, delete Facebook, hit the gym. Another clothing line keeps it really simple: Wash this when dirty. We can enjoy and appreciate advice that doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s entertaining. But what if the instructions are intended to be helpful but miss the mark so completely it could make us laugh--were it not so sad. It was information targeted for a senior audience, advising of the physical and emotional toll of loneliness as someone ages. It first listed all the benefits to health and well-being of having regular and meaningful interactions with others, followed by the problems that develop when those interactions are lacking. It warned against isolation, spending too much time watchingTV or on computers, and spoke of the importance of surrounding yourself with people. It then went on to provide a list of websites for more information. Seriously? In discussing the importance of meaningful interactions with others, they were directed to a computer to spend time looking up websites. Nonetheless, I checked out the recommended sites. The first two were summaries of research done on the impact of loneliness, validating the aforemen-

tioned article. The third was a bibliography of books on the topic. It seemed the message was: “Are you feeling lonely? Here’s some stuff to read about the damage to your health because you are feeling lonely.” Not very helpful. I would have hoped that at the end of this important information would be the even more important advice on how to avert the impact. Perhaps the mention of community groups engaged in activities and recreation for particular age groups, churches providing seniors’ ministries or visitation programs, or a listing of government services geared toward the needs of seniors. Instead it was instructions similar to a brochure describing emergency procedures at a summer camp: “In case of flood, proceed uphill. In case of flash flood, proceed uphill quickly.” So, hey seniors, in case of loneliness try not to get lonely. If feeling really lonely, try harder not to be lonely. Then again, maybe that information should be targeted toward the rest of us. Those we look up to as more elderly than ourselves have carved the way for us and we are benefiting from their ambition and initiative. Their sacrifices helped establish the way of life we somehow now feel entitled to. So what could we do in return? How about a visit? A bit of conversation. Giving some time to share and to listen. But we also need to remember that it is not just seniors that need our time. We are reminded that teenagers and young adults are the most lonely of any age group. Their predominant interests and activities have connected them to the virtual world and left them feeling totally isolated from authentic relationships. But there are things we can do. It doesn’t take special training or talent--just a bit of time and interest in how someone else is doing. The directions that come with a DIY bookcase include a side step: “Make nachos (optional but recommended).” What a great way to remind people that you can have some fun while you’re tackling a chore. And how much better it would be to divide the task…and share the nachos…with someone who would simply enjoy being alongside. Invite someone for a walk, or a cup of coffee, or just check in. Ask someone to give you a hand. We can change up the instructions and in the process help change someone’s life. Don’t just build a bookcase. Build a relationship. That’s my outlook.

Managing Your Money: How to get your risk profile right Every investor fears losing money but if you panic when there’s an unexpected drop in the market or a minor recession and throw away your carefully crafted financial plan, you can be certain of one thing: Your risk profile isn’t right. Of course, investing is about picking securities that will make money – and it’s also about choosing investments in line with your risk tolerance. Determining your risk tolerance can be difficult but when you get it right, investing will be that much easier. Here’s how. Start with your goals You need to know what you’re trying to achieve before you can set your asset mix – in other words, define your financial goals. Age is also a factor. A younger investor with a long-term time horizon

may choose less conservative investments while an investor heading for retirement may be more conservative. Understand real market risk You may feel riskier than you really are when the stock market is producing spectacular gains. But when you experience an episode of market volatility, you may realize you aren’t really as risk-tolerant as you thought. Some investors can absorb a 20% loss a year and feel comfortable because they know that markets will eventually recover and rise. Others may panic and sell at a loss. Define your real risk tolerance The first step is to define your time horizon – is it short-term or longterm? Then define your true comfort level with risk by asking yourself how much you’re comfortable

Paws & Claws

potentially losing in the short term. Don’t just use percentages – “I’d be okay with losing 10% or 15%.” — use dollar terms — “If I have X amount invested, I will be comfortable losing Y amount.” By establishing your correct expectations from day one, you won’t panic with inevitable market volatility. Your professional advisor will have a questionnaire to help you achieve the correct risk profile and investment mix for your situation. Talk to your advisor about your tolerance for risk and your overall financial plan soon. This column, written and published by Investors Group Financial Services Inc. (in Québec – a Financial Services Firm), and Investors Group Securities Inc. (in Québec, a firm in Financial Plan-

ning) presents general information only and is not a solicitation to buy or sell any investments. Contact your own advisor for

Don’t shave your dog during the summer It may seem like a smart idea to have your dog shaved when the weather starts to warm up, but this isn’t a good way to help your pup beat the heat. Because dogs don’t sweat in the same way humans do, their coat is actually vital to keep them cool during the summer. Your dog’s fur acts as a protective barrier against the heat and helps keep your pup’s body cool. Dog hair traps moisture to insulate and naturally refresh your pet. Pretty neat, right? What’s more, Fido’s fur also shields him from harmful UV rays and insect bites. Regularly brush your dog’s coat to prevent knots and improve air circulation.

Heat meet: SCRC racing action at Bowan Rekken Moto-X Track Memorial Park

Lynne Bell

Observer Staff

Heat and humidity didn’t stop an estimated 300 moto-cross fans from the action at Carlyle’s Bowan Rekken Moto-X Memorial Park, as the South Corner Racing Circuit (SCRC) hosted a day of dirt bike racing for athletes from Saskatchewan and Manitoba, on Saturday, July 7. Organizer Susan Rekken says that 255 wristbands were sold at the gate, with an estimated 300 spectators taking in the action at the day-long event. “Pretty awesome for a hot day!” says Rekken. This was the first race of two races to be held in Carlyle for the SCRC season, with other practices and competitions in Assiniboia, Estevan, Oxbow and Weyburn. The SCRC was founded in 2007, with nearly 100 riders from Saskatchewan and Manitoba competing on the track and supporting each other off the track, according to the organization’s president - and professional moto-cross racer - Kate Lees.

“Our circuit is family-oriented,” says Lees. “We make friends with the people we race with. We compete on the track, but off the track, we’re family.” With a growing roster of racers and a strong presence on social media, the SCRC has also garnered greater interest among fans, according to Lees. “We’ve got more members and they’re younger,” she says. “I think that’s because we’ve gotten bigger into social media, so more people know about the series and they either want to come out to watch the sport or try the sport.” The day’s results are as follows: “C” Class: 1st place: Wyatt Vilcu, 2nd place: Zaden Batty, 3rd place: Dylan Mitchell. 50cc: 1st place: Cole Roedelbronn, 2nd place: Levi Von Staden, 3rd place: Ava Mantai. 65cc: 1st place: Ryder Herberholz, 2nd place: Marcus Quigley, 3rd place: Lauren Puhlmann. 85cc: 1st place: Ryder Zackrisson, 2nd place: Dylan Honig, 3rd place: Brad Sinden.

OK, they can start working on that 2019 Stanley Cup parade route in Toronto. Start on Yonge and Dundas, over to Queen Street, take a left turn on Tavares Road … What? They haven’t named a street after John Tavares yet? Wasn’t that part of the contract? Seven years, $77 million, dinner once a week at Doug Ford’s, a tribute song from Drake, the tip of the CN Tower being reshaped into a ’T’ for Tavares, and the renaming of Bay Street to Tavares Road. That was the deal. Read the contract’s fine print. It was Canada Day on July 1, but the fireworks weren’t limited to colourful late-night sky explosions. There were hockey fireworks too, none more explosive than the signing by Toronto Maple Leafs of Tavares, the first superstar free agent to leave his original team since Scott Niedermayer bolted from New Jersey to

Anaheim in 2005. What happened in Mickey Mouse Land? The Ducks won a cup in Niedermayer’s second year with the club, that’s all. Leafs’ fans won’t have the patience to wait for Tavares’ second year with the team to win the Cup. Toronto racked up the third-highest point total in the Eastern Conference last year (tying the 105 points earned by Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals) and the addition of Tavares should mean at least three or four more victories. Why not 82-0? OK, then 80-2. Tavares was believed to be considering either a return to his Islanders, or else the San Jose Sharks or the Leafs. Toronto fans couldn’t believe their good fortune when the 27-yearold sniper, who has 272 goals and 621 points in his nine NHL seasons, chose the Leafs, saying it was a boyhood dream for the Mississauga native to play for his hometown team. The Leafs are solid in goal with Frederick Andersen and up front, with their star players all having youth on their side, but their defence needs some work. General manager Kyle Dubas and team president Brendan Shanahan will obviously be getting down to work with Coach Mike Babcock to solidify that defensive unit. The addition of Tavares gives the Leafs two superstars at centre — Auston Matthews is the other, of course — and 30-goal man Nazem Kadri centres the third line. No team in the NHL can match that strength

down the middle. The Leafs, undoubtedly ‘Canada’s team’, have thousands more joyous fans today than they had on June 30, when Tavares was in limbo. Now that he’s out of limbo and into the Leafs’ lineup, there will be no satisfaction until that Stanley Cup parade winds its way down Tavares Road. • Randy Turner of the Winnipeg Free Press, on Twitter: “I could be mistaken, but the problem with Tavares signing in Toronto is that I fear the Leafs will now get a disproportionate amount of attention from the national media.” • Comedy writer Alex Kaseberg, after 63-yearold golfer Greg Norman posed nude in the ESPN Magazine body issue: “The caption under the photo is ‘This should get those punks off my lawn.’ ” • Dwight Perry of the Seattle Times: “University of Michigan researchers have designed a computer that is smaller than a grain of rice. The screen is so tiny, we hear, that even the Orioles’ playoff chances won’t fit on it.” • Danny Woodhead on Twitter, after DeMarcus Cousins signed with Golden State: “Sources: Sidney Crosby, Roger Federer, Mike Trout, and Dustin Johnson are all expected to sign with the Warriors. Bill Belichick also expected to be one of Kerr’s assistants.” • Scott Ostler of the San Francisco Chronicle: “Soccer fans wonder, if Senegal and Japan had had an equal number of yellow cards, what would the next tiebreaker have been? An-

swer: The team with the best haircuts advances.” • Comedy writer Jim Barach: “Graeme McDowell had to withdraw from a British Open qualifier when Air France lost his clubs. Their promise to deliver the clubs on time turned from ‘oui’ to ‘IOU.’ • RJ Currie of sportsdeke.com: “The CFL Eskimos are talking with the Inuit about changing their team name, which reportedly means ‘eaters of raw meat.’ I always thought it meant ‘eliminate Bombers from playoffs.’” • Another one from Currie: “Reuters reports an India ATM stopped working because a rat got in and ate thousands of dollars in cash before choking. Probably how the Cleveland Cavaliers feel about JR Smith.” • Janice Hough of leftcoastsportsbabe. com: “Jenrry Mejia has been reinstated by MLB two years after being given a lifetime ban for PEDs. Because playing for the Mets is punishment enough?” • Dwight Perry again: “Authorities in Manitoba have dropped marijuana charges against Saskatchewan Roughriders receiver Duron Carter. Apparently the instantreplay booth ruled he didn’t have possession.” • Syndicated columnist Norman Chad, on the U.S. failing to qualify for the World Cup: “If it is any consolation, we also stink in math, civil rights, education, gun control, supporting the arts, climate-change awareness, electoral security and cable news.” Care to comment?

Creed Isaac Brownridge

July 1, 1978 - June 6, 2018 It is with broken hearts that we share the passing of our beloved daughter, sister, wife and mother Jaclyn Dawn Morris (nee Arthur). Jaclyn passed away on June 6 in Regina at the age of 39 years. After a courageous and relentless �ight with auto-immune disorders. Jaclyn is survived by her loving husband David and will, be forever remembered by their eight-yearold daughter Ava and three-year-old son Cole. She is also survived by her parents Alan and Kathleen Arthur, sister Jocelyn (Curtis) Arthur, Jennifer (Chad) Arthur and numerous nephews, nieces, aunts, uncles and cousins. She was predeceased by her grandparents Jack and Vera Arthur and Peter and Esther Sorensen and maternal uncles. Jaclyn was born on July 1, 1978 and grew up on the family farm near Redvers, SK. Jaclyn was a farm girl at heart and spent her youth at dance competitions and organ lessons. She convocated from the University of Saskatchewan in 2002 and was employed as a dietitian in Regina. She married David in 2007 and was no more proud of anything or anyone than their two children Ava and Cole. She wanted nothing more than to be a loving mother to her children all while overcoming countless health challenges and disabilities. She took joy in sharing her children’s new experiences with them and always helping them to work through life’s challenges. We gained strength from Jaclyn’s courage. She never quit �ighting while facing challenges that appeared insurmountable. May she �ind eternal peace and comfort and know she is forever loved and missed. In lieu of �lowers, donations may be made to an education trust being established for Ava and Cole. Memorial Service was held June 11 at Regina Funeral Home.

DRILLING REPORT

Friday, July 13, 2018

Crop report for the period June 26 to July 2 Scattered showers last week brought much-needed rain to many areas of the province, according to Saskatchewan Agriculture’s weekly Crop Report. Rainfall last week ranged from trace amounts to 53 mm in the Arborfield area. Additional rainfall in the past few days has alleviated concerns of dry conditions in some areas, although more will be needed in the coming weeks to help crops develop. The majority of crops are in good condition and at their normal stages of development for this time of year. Twenty per cent of the spring cereals are in the heading stage, while 45 per cent of the canola and mustard and 44 per cent of the pulse crops are flowering. Overall, topsoil moisture conditions have slightly worsened in the past week, due to the warmer temperatures and lack of moisture. Provincially,

topsoil moisture conditions on cropland are rated as four per cent surplus, 62 per cent adequate, 29 per cent short and five per cent very short. Hay land and pasture topsoil moisture is rated as three per cent surplus, 52 per cent adequate, 32 per cent short and 13 per cent very short. Topsoil moisture remains in very short supply in many southwestern areas. Haying continues, although there have been delays due to rain and high humidity. Livestock producers now have 14 per cent of the crop cut and 10 per cent baled or put into silage. Hay quality is rated as seven per cent excellent, 50 per cent good, 37 per cent fair and six per cent poor. Hay yields so far are reported to be much lower than average and many pastures are expected to have significantly reduced carrying capacity heading into the summer. Pasture conditions are rated as six

OILFIELD DIRECTORY

Anglers reminded to report tagged fish Fish tagging is a common research tool used to temporarily or permanently mark fish that are a part of a scientific study. Organizations who tag these fish often rely on anglers to report tags when the tagged fish are caught. Tag reports provide valuable insight on fish movement and survival, which inform fisheries management. Anglers may notice tags along the back of a fish. The tag appearance may vary depending on the type of tag and its function. The most common tag is a T-bar tag or “noodle tag” which is typically located alongside a dorsal fin. If an angler comes

across a tagged fish, they should examine the tag for a unique identification number (typically three to six numerical digits) and contact information. The identification number should be recorded and reported to the email address or phone number printed on the tag as soon as possible. Alternatively, tags can be reported to a local Conservation Officer or Ministry of Environment Compliance Office. It is also helpful to include additional information in the report, such as the tag colour, species, fish length or weight, location and date of capture. Photos of the fish are also very

useful as part of the research. Please leave the tags on the fish if they are released back into the water. The Government of Saskatchewan has conducted several tagging projects on waterbodies throughout the province. In addition, the province has partnered with other agencies and research groups on various fish studies that use different types of fish tags. Some of the popular lakes for recreational angling where tagged fish may be found include: Tobin Lake, Last Mountain Lake, Buffalo Pound Reservoir, the Qu’Appelle Lakes, Lake Diefenbaker and Boundary Reservoir.

Saskatchewan Cattlemen’s Association Call For Nominations The Saskatchewan Cattlemen’s Association (SCA), is seeking nominations for up to five potential openings on the board. The district terms are two years in length and are renewable. This year districts 2, 3B 5, 7, and 9A are due for renewal. Nomination forms are available online at saskbeef.com or by contacting the SCA office by email at info@ saskbeef.com or call 306-585-2333. Nominations close at midnight, July 31, 2018. “I want to encourage all ranchers in the province to consider getting more involved with the

association. “We have some members who have served on the board and they are stepping away,” says Rick Toney, SCA Board Chair. “This is a great time for other producers to step up and get involved.” The SCA Board is made up of members from each of Saskatchewan’s nine crop districts. There are two members from Districts 3 and 9, due to the large number of cattle in those areas. There are also two representatives from the Saskatchewan Cattle Feeders Association (SCFA), the Saskatchewan Stock Growers As-

sociation (SSGA), as well as the Past Chair of the SCA. The Board meets monthly, alternating between Regina and Saskatoon. The SCA is the provincial check-off agency for Saskatchewan beef producers. Its mission is to develop and promote the success of all production sectors of the Saskatchewan beef cattle industry through effective representation from all regions of the province. The board oversees how producer’s funds are invested in research, promotion, advocacy and partnerships to meet the strategic goals of the organization.

per cent excellent, 44 per cent good, 34 per cent fair, 13 per cent poor and three per cent very poor. Producers are wrapping up in-crop herbicide applications in most areas and are applying fungicides when warranted. The majority of crop damage this past week was due to localized flooding, lack of moisture, strong winds and hail. Some crops are suffering from diseases such as root rot due to excess moisture. Farmers are busy haying and scouting for insects and disease. A complete, printable version of the Crop Report is available online at http://www.saskatchewan.ca/ crop-report.

Regulations passed allowing for ticketing of cannabis offences The Government of Saskatchewan has amended regulations to allow for the ticketing of numerous offences under The Cannabis Control (Saskatchewan) Act. Ticket amounts will range from $200 up to a maximum of $2,250 depending on the offence. Passing of these regulations is another step toward the legalization of cannabis in Canada. Offences subject to ticketing will include: · A $200 ticket for possessing or distributing more than 30 grams of dried cannabis in a public place; · A $200 ticket for consuming cannabis in a public place; · A $1,000 ticket for consuming cannabis at school, on school grounds or at a child care facility; · A $300 ticket if a min-

or is caught purchasing, possessing, consuming, or selling cannabis; · A $750 ticket for anyone caught selling or giving cannabis to a minor; · A $2,250 ticket if a permittee or employee of a retail cannabis location fails to demand proof of age and/or if a permittee sells or distributes cannabis to a minor; · A $300 ticket for possessing, consuming or distributing cannabis in a vehicle, which will not apply if someone is transporting cannabis from a legal point of purchase to a legal point of consumption; and · A $200 ticket for possessing or consuming cannabis in a campground when a cannabis prohibition is in effect. These new regulations that apply to cannabis are similar to current rules regarding alco-

hol. The ticketing rules for cannabis under The Summary Offences Procedure (Miscellaneous) Amendment Regulations, 2018, will not come into force until

Saskatchewan announces first subsurface mineral rights public offering schedule The Government of Saskatchewan has released the schedule for Subsurface Mineral Rights Public Offerings, making the transition to a competitive auction process for rights to potash and brine mineral exploration and development. The province’s first Subsurface Mineral Rights Public Offering will be held December 18, 2018. The public offering process under The Subsurface Mineral Tenure Regulations is similar to that for oil and gas tenure. Subsurface mineral dispositions allow the holder to explore for all natural mineral salts and their compounds occurring more than 60 metres below the land surface. “The implementation of the Subsurface Mineral Rights Public Offering process is a

milestone in the history of Saskatchewan’s potash and brine minerals industry,” Energy and Resources Minister Bronwyn Eyre said. “The competitive bid process was prompted by the need to modernize the province’s procedure for disposing of subsurface mineral rights and will enhance Saskatchewan’s already strong competitive position compared to other mining jurisdictions.” Subsurface Mineral Rights Public Offerings will subsequently be held every April, August and December. The 2019 schedule will be released in August 2018. Effective immediately, the ministry is accepting nominations for upcoming subsurface mineral rights public offerings, and additional information is posted

on the Ministry website. The current schedule can be viewed at www.saskatchewan.ca/business/ agriculture-natural-resources-and-industry/ oil-and-gas/crown-landsales-dispositionsandtenure/public-offerings. There has been recent interest in subsurface minerals such as lithium, used in electric car batteries, which can be extracted from brine and formation waters. Natural mineral salts present in Saskatchewan include boron, calcium, lithium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, bromine, chlorine, fluorine, iodine, nitrogen, phosphorus and sulfur. Saskatchewan is the world’s leading potash mining jurisdiction and is considered to be one of the most favourable jurisdictions in the world for investment in mineral exploration.
