Snowmobile support: PWOS Mission 2018 at Kenosee Lake

Photo courtesy Kenosee Inn

The Moose Mountain Snowmobile Club welcomed Saskatchewan’s Prairie Women on Snowmobiles to this area with a ride on local trails, followed by a fundraising and awareness raising evening at the Kenosee Inn, Tuesday, Feb. 6.

There may have been a shortage of snow, but there was an abundance of spirit as cancer fundraisers - Prairie Women on Snowmobiles - made an overnight stop on Tuesday, Feb. 6 at The Kenosee Inn for an event in their honour hosted by the Moose Mountain Snowmobile Club - as part of the group’s 2018 tour throughout southeast Saskatchewan. Since its 2001 inception, the non-profit organization tours part of the province annually to promote the early detection of breast cancer as well as

raising funds for breast cancer research and the purchase of medical equipment for health facilities in Saskatchewan. To date, PWOS has raised over $2.4 million for research through the Canadian Cancer Society and since 2013, the group has raised more than $229,000 for the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency. Each dollar donated through their annual Missions stays in Saskatchewan, with equipment purchased for cancer centres in Regina and Saskatoon as well as equipment - including a mobile bus that has been donated to serve rural areas of the province.

Each year, 10 volunteer riders - often cancer survivors - sled through Saskatchewan for a six-day journey which covers about 1,400 kilometers. This year, the riders and their crew members started their ‘Mission 2018’ in Regina and concluded their trip in Estevan. In this area, their itinerary included stops in Kipling, Kisbey, Redvers, Gainsborough, Carnduff, Oxbow, Arcola, Lampman, Midale, Torquay, Estevan and Kenosee Lake, where PWOS President Kelly Rea praised and thanked attendees for their support.

From Front Page - Prairie Women “We’ve received a great welcome,” she said. “And thanks to (groomer) Doug Ilchuk and the entire Moose Mountain Snowmobile Club, we were even able to snowmobile in this beautiful area today.” “But whether there is snow or not, we still make the route. We make every single stop, whether we’re on the sleds or riding in the van. We bring the sleds, so people still get to see them and whether we’re in a community for coffee, or lunch or an evening, we meet people and get our message out there.” At each stop, the PWOS riders, executive and crew are introduced and the organization’s history and mission is explained to the audience. Members of the public have an opportunity to meet the riders and at every stop, a “pinning ceremony” is held. “We invite any cancer survivors to receive a special pin that was specially designed for us,” says Rea who herself is a cancer survivor. “They get a hug, but if they’re uncomfortable coming forward, we announce that they can approach any one of us to receive a pin privately.” “No matter how they choose to do it, we want to acknowledge cancer survivors and congratulate them. It’s a big thing to beat cancer,” At the Kenosee Inn banquet - a longer event - each of the 10 riders talked about their poignant and personal experiences with cancer. Although Hazel Crosson Rosthern), Leanne Dagnall (Foam Lake), Sherry Derksen (Hague), Carla

Hordos (Tisdale), Kim Hyshka (Rhein), Christina Johnson (Weekes), Michelle Martin (Saskatoon), Nadine WeibeTrapp (Emma Lake) and Brenda Trapp (Saskatoon) touched those in attendance with their individual stories; rider Patti Trapp of Saskatoon received prolonged applause, as she - supported by fellow rider and cancer survivor Hazel Crosson - took the microphone. “This is going to be really hard,” she said, as she revealed that she was at the Kenosee event only because her surgery for a brain tumour had been rescheduled. As someone who has already experienced thyroid cancer and a spinal tumour, Trapp said that being diagnosed with a brain tumour was “scary as hell.” “But my surgery was rescheduled for a pediatric surgery, so I’m good. And I will fight this.” Instead of snowmobiling, Trapp rode out Mission 2018’s route in the group’s van or semi, with two-time veteran volunteer drivers, Kelly Phinney (Kindersley) and Wyatt Smith (Pelly), accompanied by newcomer Alex Riehl of Benito, Manitoba. “She’s an amazing lady - they all are,” said Phinney. “And we’re all planning to drive again next year.” When Trapp wasn’t on the road with the PWOS, she was replaced by a stand-in - a giant teddy bear - which was photographed with the women and local supporters who came out during their stop in Kisbey earlier in the day. “We really need to

give a huge thank you to the Moose Mountain Snowmobile Club, Troy Foster for setting all this up and Ed (Fahlman), Daryl (Safniuk) and the Kenosee Inn - what a meal! And our trail groomer, Doug Ilchuk (Kisbey),” said Rea. “Today, they made sure we got a chance to ride, even with the relative lack of snow. It’s a beautiful part of the province and we’re so glad we got to experience it on a ride. But more importantly, people here have been so welcoming and so supportive of our mission - which also includes safe snowmobiling.” Both Fahlman and Safniuk say that hosting the Prairie Women on Snowmobiles was a “privilege.” “And we’re really proud of the Moose Mountain community for coming out to support these amazing women and such a worthy cause,” added Fahlman. Pam Foster of Carlyle agrees. “It’s awesome. I had tears in my eyes and I wasn’t alone. I’ve had family members with cancer and so do so many other people from this area.” But the thing I like a lot about what these women do is that the money they raise stays in Saskatchewan.” Rea says; “I can’t wait for the day when we are out there snowmobiling for fun - not for fundraising - because we’ve found a cure for cancer. But until then, Prairie Women on Snowmobiles will continue our mission.” To learn more, visit .

Moose Mountain Elks Lodge visited by Grand Exalted Ruler Kelly Running Observer Staff

The Moose Mountain – Kisbey #483 Sask Elks Lodge welcomed the Grand Exalted Ruler of the Elks, Deborah Sallenback from Aldergrove, BC, to the community on Thursday, Feb. 8. “It’s my first time here,” Sallenback said. “I’m seeing a lot of countryside in this position that I never would have seen otherwise because I’m driving across the country.” The local Elks hosted a supper in her honour and welcomed the community to attend. Members of the Moosomin Elks Lodge also travelled to Kisbey for the event. Claudia Mullis, Provincial President of the Rebekah Assembly of Saskatchewan, said a few words about the community Sallenback was visiting: “We always help each other on different projects… we’ve been doing that for many years. I think one thing we have in common [the Rebekah’s and the Elks]

is that we like to help our community. One of the projects that the Rebekah’s works with is vision and the Elks have one focused on hearing; so we’re helping people in different ways...” Sallenback then spoke explaining how the Elks are changing and adapting to show younger generations what their intentions are and how they can help. “Over the last 10 years, we’ve lost a number of members; but, over the past year or two there has been a change of attitudes and there are younger lodges out there that are revitalizing what we’re doing. We’re working together to celebrate the future.” The Elks have been in Canada since 1912 – there are over 250 Lodges across Canada and approximately 11,000 members according to the Elks of Canada website. “The strengths of our Order involve the hard work of our membership in building and strengthening our communities they live in while providing assistance to children

and families in need,” Sallenback states on the Elks Canada website. “Our greatest achievements recognized by our peers is our work in Speech and Hearing in many provinces’ across Canada. We have campaigned hard in recent years to have all Provinces adopt programs, which result in mandatory testing of new borns for hearing loss at birth.” “Through our National Charity, the Elks and Royal Purple Fund for Children we have been able to raise funds to support children under the age of nineteen as well as provide assistance to families whose home was destroyed by fire as well as many other personnel assistance imitated by Lodges.” She also said in her speech on Feb. 11, that the Lodge held a Food Drive and was able to gather 80,000 lbs last year. They’re hoping to do it again this year and reach 100,000 lbs. Finally she thanked the hosting lodge for its hospitality and delicious roast beef meal.

Friends of Moose Mountain Lodge ask for input

Since the start, the Friends of Moose Mountain Lodge have made it their mission to enhance the everyday lives of the facility’s residents and lend support to the staff who care for them - and now the volunteer group is asking for community input and what FMML President, Tannis Wilson calls “fresh ideas.” “We’ve received generous monetary support,” says Wilson. “And money was donated by people locally to benefit a community cause. Now, we’d like some local input regarding how those funds should best be spent to benefit the Lodge’s residents.” “Since we started three years ago, we’ve done a lot of things at the Lodge that adds to the residents’ enjoyment,” says FMML founder and Moose Mountain Lodge staff member, Bertha Isleifson. “We’ve had concerts - including a surprise show by Rory Allen - and regular treats, such as our Fresh Fruit Fridays and a monthly chicken dinner from A & W.” “Our volunteers and our supporters have brought in entertainment, held social events, purchased new equipment, carried out beautification projects and so much more, including providing a gift from Santa at Christmastime for each resident,” adds Isleifson. “The simplest things make the biggest difference to our residents.” Wilson and her fellow FMML volunteers are ready and willing to continue to provide both everyday and exceptional life-enhancing experiences to residents, which is why they are asking for input and ideas. “We meet the fourth Tuesday of each month,” says Wilson. “And we don’t hold meetings in July, August or December. I realize that some people don’t want to attend a meeting, but those meetings are where the decisions about spending money are made. Even if you attend once, we welcome

New look to NHL playoffs guaranteed

sports time-out with

Bruce Penton How beat to describe the current National Hockey League season? Shocking? Topsyturvy? How about ‘unbelievable’? How about all three? Shocking that a number of teams thought to be pre-season Stanley Cup contenders such as Chicago Blackhawks and Edmonton Oilers are not only not contending, but both likely to miss the playoffs. Topsy-turvy? The team almost 100 per cent of ‘experts’ pegged to finish dead last of the 31 NHL teams, the Vegas Golden Knights, are among the league powers and have a legitimate shot at — this is the unbelievable part — the Stanley Cup. More topsy? More turvy? How

about the only two Canadians teams to have virtually secured berths in the playoffs by midFebruary are two teams with sad and sorry pasts — Winnipeg Jets and Toronto Maple Leafs? Solidly in the postseason are the Jets and Leafs; on the edge are the Calgary Flames. Definite outside-lookingin Canadian teams are Montreal and Ottawa in the East, Edmonton and Vancouver in the West. The most recent Jets’ playoff victory was 1986-87, during their first NHL go-round in the Manitoba capital, when they beat the Flames 4-2 in a bestof-seven first-round Smythe Division series. As for the Leafs, it’s been 14 years since their last playoff series victory, a seven-game triumph over Ottawa in 2003-04. Famously, of course, the Leafs are without a Stanley Cup since 1967. Let’s talk Vegas for a minute. The gambling part, not the hockey part. If someone had stopped by a casino sportsbook

window last fall and wagered real money on the Golden Knights winning the Stanley Cup, one of three things might have happened: 1. The sympathetic casino employee, instantly recognizing an utter fool, would refuse to take the bettor’s money; 2. Casino staff would call for a mental health therapist for some immediate on-site attention; 3. The sportsbook employee would smile and take the money, because that’s what they do in Vegas. Can you envision a Winnipeg-Vegas Western Conference final? Many can. How about a Tampa-Toronto clash in the Eastern final? This NHL season, if nothing else, indicates one thing: The apocalypse approaches. • Jimmy Fallon of NBC’s Tonight Show: “The Cleveland Indians announced that they will no longer use Chief Wahoo as their logo beginning in 2019. They admitted that the logo is extremely offensive, so they’re only gonna wear it for 162 more games.”

Learning to learn


By Linda Wegner There probably are few things more challenging than learning how to give and understanding how to receive, instructions. If you question that statement, think back on the last time someone attempted to correct an action (whether yours or someone else’s) or on the last time you attempted to pass on well-meaning advice to someone not ready to receive it. Solomon has much to say about this important topic and, in fact, defines the specific purposes of his words: to know wisdom and instruction; to recognize the words of understanding; to receive the instruction of wisdom; and, to give prudence. (Proverbs 1:14) As I pored over the multiple references to instruction in this book, I realized that in almost every case, Solomon was exhorting his son to



specifically honour the instructions he’d given him and the wisdom given him (David) by his mother. My initial reaction? Oh, how I wish every person on earth had the kind of parental care and guidance referred to in this book! Regardless of the source, however, we cannot go wrong by learning what God has to say to us through the Scriptures and from the lips of those who live out His truths in their everyday lives. If you wonder why it’s important to follow counsel presented in the Bible, here’s one answer “Keep your heart with all diligence for out it spring the issues of life” A foundation of Scriptural integrity doesn’t promise freedom from problems, persecution or pain but building our daily lives on God’s instructions, we are provided wisdom, strength in facing temptations

Quote of the Week... Set small goals leading to the big goal. Always stay positive, never give up. It will be hard but worth it in the end.” - Canadian Olympic Kayaker, Ryan Cochrane

Being sociably responsible

Over the last few weeks the topic of legalizing marijuana has come up in conversations. At face value, it’s no worse than any other legalized drug, like alcohol, however, the Federal Government may have jumped the gun in legalization; is everything in place that needs to be? With alcohol there is Kelly Running a roadside-screening device, Observer Staff which can tell if you’re over the legal limit; if you are there’s then a secondary device at detachments where they can determine exactly what your blood alcohol content is. This, however, is a larger process to test for and if drinking and driving in Saskatchewan accounts for nearly half of all fatal traffic collisions – according to SGI reports – what happens with another available legal substance that impairs? Other questions that popped up included: where would you physically be able to consume it? Will there be cafes like in Amsterdam or are you just able to use it privately? If there are cafes, which allow smoking, then will they allow regular cigarettes too? Will legalization create the need for companies to increase the number of drug tests of zero-tolerance positions? A study conducted by the Cummings School of Medicine at the University of Calgary states that second-hand marijuana smoke could lead to workplace failure of a drug tests as well. Published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal Open, it states that THC – the mind-altering ingredient in marijuana – can produce a positive in blood and urine tests within 15-minutes of exposure. If it’s not something you do often the THC can take between 24 and 48 hours to leave your system – proving an issue at a job with zero-tolerance. While, for regular users THC can remain in the system for up to 30 days. A Macleans article published Jan. 24, “What Canada’s plan for regulating marijuana gets wrong,” by Daniel Myran and Ryan Forrest questions the marketing of marijuana drawing on the regulation of tobacco and alcohol. Tobacco – marketing is banned (the only ads I’ve seen for tobacco are from American magazines), tobacco packages have graphically detailed warnings on them, is banned in all indoor public places, must be away from doorways, and what was once considered “cool” has been deemed to be “uncool.” Alcohol – to be consumed “socially responsibly” and is marketed (television, magazines, and social media), but is prohibited from being directed at youth. It’s considered socially acceptable with people often questioning those that don’t drink. Canada is a global leader in tobacco control, while it ranks fourth highest in the developed world for binge drinking according to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. So, if marijuana is following alcohol in its legalization, what does this really mean for society? I personally don’t really care one way or the other because at face value it doesn’t really affect me; but, the “butterfly effect” means it could if someone chose to jump in a car and drive while under the influence – would they make it home safe or potentially endanger my family, friends, or me on their way home? I know there are people doing this out there already, but will there be more once smoking is legalized and more easily accessible? Would second hand smoke lead to a positive test that could impact a family member, friend, or me? Ultimately rules and regulations will be put in place and hopefully they’re adhered to, as we do need to be socially responsible when it comes to legal drugs like alcohol and soon-to-be marijuana.

Heart of the Moose Mountains

Commands we should be listening to Athletes. Settle. Beep. Beep. Beep. Be-ep. On your marks. Ready. Go! Any combination of the above commands are used by starters to begin events at the Winter Olympics. The voice at long track speed skating in VanMy Outlook couver in 2010 was so distinctive Shelley Luedtke I can still hear him in my head. My family and friends know what to expect (and not expect) from me in the coming days as I watch coverage while navigating the time zone difference. It is indulgent time--I readily admit that. So as the Olympics roll around I try and think of something else I could be doing while I am watching. You know--make use of the time. One lady I talked to said she used to use the Winter Games as a time to sort through her pictures. A young mom I know likes to crochet while she watches. I have tried doing a few different things but it seems the moment I turn my attention from the coverage to the other activity is exactly when a cheer or groan is heard, indicating something noteworthy just took place in the competition. So I snap to attention to catch the replay and my focus is off the secondary activity. Actually, this is true for us at every moment of every day. Even though we like to believe we can do several things at once, the reality is that while we can have several things on the go at the same time, we can only do one thing at a time. I know, I know…we can eat a meal, visit with friends, check our phones, send texts to the kids, compose a grocery list, plan an event and prepare for a meeting all at the same time. While we can certainly feel as if we are doing all these things simultaneously, what we’re actually doing is shifting from task to task to task in such rapid succession our brains are having to choose which information to focus on and process. We may want to believe the transitions back and forth are smooth, but the reality is there is a lag time with this rapid shifting and it is interrupting and dis-

rupting the cognitive process of attention. This has a cost. Trying to do multiple things at the same time results in a greater number of mistakes coupled by slower completion time than if we had done things one after another. But hey, who has time for that? We’re too busy and need to be far more productive than that, right? Well, neuroscientists tell us our misguided attempts at multitasking are actually limiting our productivity by 40%, along with affecting our longterm memory and hampering our creativity. In our effort to do more in less time we are actually accomplishing much less and missing out on much more. There are of course tasks that we can work on concurrently. We can prepare a meal and have a conversation at the same time, but those get severely hampered if we add additional tasks into the mix, especially activities related to our phones and computers. It is particularly damaging if what we are adding takes focus away from the people who are in the room with us. Too many times it seems that when our tech devices and our time with people collide, the technology wins. But just consider who the losers are in that scenario. We are losing out on time that cannot be recovered. By erroneously believing we are juggling multiple things well, we are creating potential problems. It can result in stress-induced medical concerns, poorer job performance, diminished feelings of personal satisfaction, and a lack of gratifying interpersonal interactions. There’s much to be gained by single tasking once we realize in effect that’s what we’re doing anyway. So rather than continuing this rapid shift of focus that keeps us from giving rightful concentration to much of anything--or anyone--we would be better off giving adequate attention to what is needed, knowing the tasks that come later will be better served. So, let’s stop feeling pressured into thinking time spent doing something we like needs to be dovetailed with time spent ‘getting something done’. We need to call out different starter commands for ourselves. On your marks, get ready. Stop…and just enjoy the moment. That’s my outlook.

Financial Focus


Managing Your Money

How divorce can devastate your finances No one wants to think about divorce, but with one in three marriages ending that way, it’s important to consider the consequences of an irrevocable break-up. While the end of a marriage is certainly devastating from an emotional perspective, it can also be detrimental from a financial one. Here are some of the critical financial and other implications that must be considered when a marriage ends. Immediate financial issues Close your joint accounts and open an individual account. Also cancel joint credit cards and any automatic payments being made on behalf of the exspouse, including spousal RSP contributions. Your legal right to finances Generally speaking, when a couple separates, the parties are entitled to a division of assets. The calculation regarding

what is or isn’t included varies between the provinces. In some provinces, even assets acquired before the marriage are shareable, and in other provinces assets acquired even after the date of separation, but before the date of divorce, are included. Both parties should receive legal advice before agreeing to anything. The rules regarding a division of assets upon the dissolution of a common law relationship vary dramatically across the country. In some provinces, partners are entitled to the same division of assets as a married couple once they have lived together for a sufficient period of time. In other provinces, former partners are not entitled to a division of assets no matter how long they have lived together, she explains. Assets to consider When it comes to assets from the marriage, there are a number of things

to consider dividing, including the family home, a share of government or workplace pensions that your spouse contributed to during the marriage, funds accumulated in an RRSP and other properties or investments. Spousal support Both men and women can apply for spousal support. Generally, spousal support is deductible to the payor and taxable in the hands of the payee. Child support, though, is not taxable to the parent who receives it and is not deductible for the person who pays it. Tax implications Even for separating couples with modest assets, there are many tax issues that should be considered. Cottages, RRSPs and other investments may be split up – but they could be taxed in the process. There may also be a number of tax credits and deductions you may

HEALTH HUB Stress vs. anxiety: do you know the difference? Agitation, palpitations, muscle tension, digestive trouble, insomnia, irritability — while the symptoms of stress and anxiety are similar, these two terms designate very different problems. Here’s how to tell which is which. Stress In the face of pressure or real danger — an exam, a speech, a job interview, a bear chasing you — stress is a perfectly normal, even healthy, reaction. However uncomfortable, this feeling tends to fade once the danger disappears and is usually limited to a particular worry: “if I fail my exam, I’ll have to retake the class.” Anxiety Anxiety symptoms are more intense. This disorder can be defined by the tendency to anticipate and blow potential difficulties out of proportion, or even overestimate — if not imag-

ine — the negative consequences that could occur: “I’m going to fail the exam, and I’ll never get my degree, and no one will ever want to hire me.” Anxiety creates fears that persist even when the person affected distances his or herself from the problem. Severe cases can

prevent people from functioning normally without medication. If you feel that you react to stress excessively or are constantly anxious, seek help from either your GP or a medical professional specializing in stress management.

be entitled to, but only if the agreement is properly structured. Estate implications Rewrite your will, otherwise your separated spouse may be entitled to your estate if they are named in the will. A divorce is hard on the emotions – make sure it isn’t hard on your finances, too. Talk to your professional advisor to get the help you need to make sure you get your fair share.

Alida News Submitted by Edel Cowan

The Alida community extends sincere condolences to the Clemens and Gervais families on the death of Octavie Marie Angeline Clemens (nee Gervais) who passed away Feb. at the age of 94, late of Carlyle and formerly of Manor and Alida. Funeral Mass was held February 10 at the R.C. Church in Carlyle with interment in St. Joseph’s Parish Cemetery in Manor. She is survived by her children Shirley (Daryl) Lemieux and Wayne (Lori) Clemens, sisters Edna Clemens and Lillian Bax and brother Henry (Florence) Gervais. Tim, Shelly and Ainsley Cowan left for a holiday trip to Vancouver on Feb. 4. While there they visited the Vancouver aquarium and later attended the Katy Perry concert. They

returned home on Feb. 9 reporting in having a great time. The Sunday Breakfast Challenge is still on – this past Sunday, Feb. 11 had Kitchen Group # 1 at the helm and they served up 50 delicious breakfasts – way to go guys and gals, I do believe that you are now the leaders in the challenge. Kitchen Group #2 will be at the helm this Sunday – see you at the rink. The Alida Recreation Board received a generous donation of $5000.00 from Dangstorp Services of Redvers for the Rink project. Margaret Peet (a Rec. Board member) accepted the donation from Brian Dangstorp on Feb. 11. The Rec. Board continues to appreciate the generosity of their supporters. It’s been a quiet week here in Alida this past week. Guess

Maryfield Sunrise Villa News Submitted by Janet Mark We give thanks fort he warmth and friendliness of the Villa on these frosty mornings. Family members have been in and out, but only Linda Mulligan, with Freda Longman; jack Lemoine, with Edith Gagnon; signed the guest book. Dorsi Erickson and Gloria Oliver continued our crafts, Bingo and exercises, and card and board games sprang up depending on who was in or out. The shuffleboard is being cleaning, as it has developed runs. The Annual Meeting of the Tenants Association was held this week. Angela Penner, Secretary/Manager, conducted the Election of Officers. Officers remain unchanged, with Janet Mark as chairman for the fifth year. Mary Thiessen offered to begin a new activity, Circle of Friends. It will feature singing, a discussion group on a current topic, and de-

votion at 6:30 Wednesdays.

everyone is just staying inside at home on these very cold days probably watching the Olympic Games on television. Keeps a person busy trying to find them on a CBC or TSN station as to which game you wish to watch. The Canadian Mixed Double Curling team is doing real well – they’re playing the semifinals on Sunday against Norway and finals will be played Monday – Go Canada Go. The Women’s Hockey team has also started their games, and got off to a real good start by defeating the Olympic Athletes from Russia. As of early Monday morning Canada has been on the podium to receive seven medals, one of which is gold from the Canadian Figure Skating team and the second gold in Moguls again Go Canada Go. There are still tickets available for the Gourmet Dinner which will be drawn on Feb. 25 – only a couple of weeks left before the draw will be made so do make sure that you have your ticket. Also another

reminder – get your drama tickets as soon as possible. The cast is hard at work practicing and preparing for the drama days in March while the production crews are making decisions as to what will be served during the evening performances. Before one knows it the decorating committees will begin transforming the hall into a “beautiful mansion” both on stage and off, ready for the realtors to do their magic and have it sold as soon as possible. This is the 26th year that Act One Production will be preforming another comedy. It is another Samuel French production titled “Clothes Encounter” by Roger Karshner – a farce of double meaning, mistaken identities, sexual innuendo, and a riotous whirlwind that resolves itself to the satisfaction of all. The cast of five will surely have you in stitches while they perform their hilarious antics. Come out and enjoy an evening of pure delightful laughter. See you at Drama.
