From Front page - Chimo Building Centre Lynne Bell

Observer Staff

Newly-opened Chimo Building Centre topped off a week of grand opening celebrations in Carlyle with a “board cutting” ceremony, Friday, June 8 with Carlyle Chamber of Commerce President, Nicole Currie doing the honours. “We’re excited to welcome this well-respected, customer service-oriented and community-minded business to Carlyle,” said Currie. “And we wish them every success.” Owners Don and Brenda Horvath are no strangers to the building business. The couple also own and operate a Chimo location in Wawota, which has served that community and beyond for 40 years. “It’s our 40th year in Wawota and our first year in Carlyle,” says Don Horvath. “We assist our customers with all building needs, large or small. We are continually introducing new products with the aid of our very helpful and loyal vendors.” “Our staff are a big part of that, too,” he says. “We try to treat our staff properly, but at the same time, we expect a high level of customer service from them - which we’re proud to say translates into loyal, long-term staff who take pride in learning and serving our customers, whatever their building needs. Right now in Wawota, our staff member who has been there the shortest length of time has been there for five years and the longest has been there 15 years.” “Our son Dean also works with us doing the books and our daughter Delaine, her husband and our grandaughter are in Regina,” adds Horvath. “So we’re a longstanding business who serve customers from throughout Saskatchewan.” The opening of Chimo’s Carlyle location featured a week of grand opening festivities, starting with an on-location live broadcast with Estevan’s CJ 1150 Radio, as well as visits by manufacturers’ representatives throughout the week, in-store specials, and numerous door prize draws. The Horvaths also invited volunteers from Crescent Point Leisure Centre to the final day of Chimo Carlyle’s grand opening week to host a barbeque lunch in support of the pool. “We are happy and proud to be a part of this vibrant business community,” says Don. “And we hope to continue to do our share and to contribute in that respect.” Former Carlyle mayor Ron Paul was in attendance at the board cutting. Paul and his wife Lois Paul built the current Chimo building in 1999 and ran a lumber business there until 2006. Longtime friends of the Horvaths, the Pauls were delighted to see Chimo come to Carlyle. “We’d both like to congratulate them,” says Lois. “And it’s wonderful to see their commitment to the business and to see it go from strength to strength.” “It’s really gratifying to see them in the building we built,” adds Ron. “They’ve been friends of ours for a long time. We belonged to the same buying group and we always got along. It’s great that they’ve brought their business to Carlyle.” Horvath says his goal as a new business owner in Carlyle is simple. “Our vision is to improve customer service and selection - that the people of Carlyle and area deserve,” says Horvath. “We’re here for the long haul and we want to make things better - as a business and as a supporter of the community.”

Weekly RCMP report Lynne Bell

Observer Staff

Staff Sgt. Darren Simons of the Carlyle RCMP detachment says with regards to recent reports of child abductions in the area: “The thought of a child abduction terrifies parents. The best way to avoid an abduction is to talk to your children.” “Knowledge is power,” he adds. “Tell your children what to do. Don’t approach a strange vehicle. Don’t get too close to a stranger. Go to a responsible adult - a police officer, a parent or a teacher - if you believe someone may have tried to approach you. Get a description of the vehicle or a photo.” “But I have to reiterate - talk to your children.” Members of the Carlyle RCMP detachment responded to several calls from Thursday, May 31 to the morning of Thursday, June 7. 911 calls/Alarms Two calls to 911 originated from a residence in Manor and police believe these were the result of a problem with telephone lines which were linked to the storms which occurred the weekend of June 2-3. Other non-emergency calls to 911 were

believed to be linked to weather-related problems with phone lines. One call to 911 was believed to be the result of a static line. RCMP members have also responded to several alarms going off in error. Police ask business owners and operators within the detachment area to update their alarms with their most recent keyholder information. Alcohol-related offences RCMP responded to an incident in the Wawota area in which several younger individuals and a lone adult male were in a vehicle. The driver was charged with: impaired operation of a motor vehicle, dangerous driving and failure to stop for police. Members responded to a report of an impaired driver. Assault An individual in the Redvers area was charged with assault. An assault which took place in Kisbey resulted in charges being laid. Assistance RCMP members assisted Saskatoon City Police with a next of kin notification. Break and enter A break and enter in the Carlyle area which resulted in missing property is still under investigation by police. A break and enter which occurred in a rural area near Carlyle is still under investigation

by RCMP. Child Welfare Act Members responded to a call regarding the Child Welfare Act. Failure to comply Police responded to a report of an individual causing problems at an area residence, resulting in one person being arrested and charged with failing to comply with their release conditions. Fire RCMP responded to a report of a fire in Kisbey. Mental Health Act Members responded to a call from a rural area with regards to the Mental Health Act. This matter is still under investigation by RCMP. Police responded to a call regarding the Mental Health Act. Public mischief RCMP remind the public that making false allegations to police can result in charges being laid. Staff Sgt. Simons states: “Anytime you cause the police to enter into an investigation into an incident that did not happen, you could be charged. The Carlyle RCMP detachment recently did have to initiate an investigation with regards to a report of alleged attempted abductions. However, both youth involved were under the age of 12, so no charges were laid.” Collision(s)/Traffic offences A collision which occurred as the result of an illegal U-turn resulted in a motorist charged

with driving with undue care and attention and receiving a fine of $280. There were no injuries. RCMP responded to other no-injury collisions this week. Police dealt with three vehicles carrying improperly-secured loads. The fine for this offence is $175. RCMP members issued several speeding tickets this week, with over 12 speeding violators dealt with. One motorist was fined $720 for: travelling at a speed of over 100 km per hour in a 60 km per hour zone, as well as passing an emergency vehicle. Police responded to a report of an erratic driver, whom they located and dealt with. Patrols were made by police after the report of an erratic driver on grid roads. RCMP made patrols after an erratic driver was reported in the Arcola area. A motorist was fined $580 for having no vehicle insurance. Members issued six fines of $230 each to drivers who failed to stop at posted stop signs. Two individuals were fined $175 each for failing to wear their seatbelts. RCMP issued a driver with a $100 ticket for unnecessary noise, in addition to fining this person $150 for failing to obey the direction of a flag person or police officer. Members responded

The proof is in the pudding By Linda Wegner We live in a world where exploring every religious or spiritual option is the popular thing to do so; simple as it sounds, accepting Scripture as inspired is seen as “outdated”. While it’s one thing to read the Bible, it’s another to know how to apply it to one’s life. The proof is in the pudding - or the living. In several chapters of Proverbs, Solomon lists a number of things: receive them, treasure His commands, incline your ear to wisdom, apply your heart to understanding and cry out for discernment. Beyond merely reading or listening, we need to consciously tuck them into our hearts and minds (3:3). God’s commands are not to be feared but rather, treasured (2:1). In the third chapter of Proverbs, Solomon is exacting in how we are to treat them: bind them around our necks and write them on the tablets of our hearts (v.3), allowing them to influ-

ence our world view and life style (v.5). What are the results? First, and one benefit I’ve proven over and over is the growing comprehension of the presence and blessing of knowing the Lord. Equity and justice become part of our lives while obedience to God’s ways give us the power to avoid walking in the “way of evil”. While several verses speak of a promise of long life as well as financial and material blessings, it’s here that I admit to not having answers to the many questions that arise from those promises. Plain and simple, there are so many things I don’t understand, especially when death seems to come far too early for far too many and too many struggle to make ends meet. Do I understand it all? No. This I know for certain, though, when our hearts are right with God, it’s shown in how we treat others.

to a report of individuals standing on the side of an area highway causing a distraction to other drivers. A motorist was fined $100 for failing to produce their vehicle registration certificate as required by law. Another driver received a warning for failing to produce their drivers licence. RCMP issued several inspection tickets and warnings this week, including: inadequate headlamps and/or running lights, improper mud flaps or fenders, improper window tint and faded licence plates. Theft RCMP received a report of stolen property. Police arrested an indi-

vidual for this offence and also laid several additional charges. Vandalism Redvers School was vandalized. Staff Sgt. Darren Simons says: “We remind parents and youth that the annual grad scavenger hunt is a good thing, but don’t be breaking the law. We’ve had reports from every community within our jurisdiction with regards to the scavenger hunts. Police have been involved and not in a positive way.” In Kisbey, the tires of a vehicle were slashed. Well-being check RCMP conducted one well-being check at the request of an individual in Europe.

Legalization: A mature step forwards By Dan Archer Assiniboia Times Three years ago, I visited Amsterdam. The city is a thrilling, photogenic maze of canals, cobbles and art museums. Amsterdam is also known for its coffeeshops with cannabis products. Cannabis is not legal in The Netherlands, only tolerated. In Amsterdam’s Red Light District, the coffeeshops are filled with tourists, especially from the United Kingdom. The majority of Amsterdam’s teenagers aren’t interested in attending these coffeeshops, existing in the city since 1967. For many Dutch teens, marijuana is something the tourists use. When I returned to England, I saw the usual things in a country where prohibition is imbedded into the national fabric. Teens were smoking weed by the Kennet and Avon Canal in Bath or chugging on Moroccan smoke with vapes in Bristol’s shopping precinct, acting cool and rebellious. Legalization, or Amsterdam-styled decriminalization, steals the glamour and swagger from cannabis. In a 2011 issue of the journal, Addiction, Robert J. MacCoun – a professor specializing in public policy in Berkeley – produced a study proving a lesser rate of Dutch teens smoked marijuana compared to American teens, although the Netherlands produces 50 to 150 metric tonnes of cannabis per year. When Colorado started the legalization process in 2014, many thought the teens in Denver and Boulder would succumb to a 21st form of unhinged reefer madness. However, author Christopher Ingraham reproduced data from a federal survey in 2017, proving teens were smoking cannabis at a lower rate after legalization compared to 2007 and 2008, although a peak in usage briefly existed in the winter of 2014. Soon after, marijuana become as dull as Father’s mouldy housecoat. The point is, marijuana is a relaxant with an overdramatic past. Blame Harry J. Anslinger, who

became the first commissioner of the U.S. Treasury Department’s Federal Bureau of Narcotics in 1930. Before 1930, Anslinger apparently didn’t believe marijuana was a serious issue. After all, cannabis had been used for thousands of years in Asia and Europe. However, some thought he made marijuana into a problem to keep the federal agents in business after the act to prohibit alcohol in the United States was repealed in 1933. In 1937, Anslinger began a lengthy campaign to prohibit cannabis in the United States. According to Anslinger’s narrative, cannabis was spreading up through the country from the Mexican border. Sounds familiar, eh? “Marihauna is a short cut to the insane asylum,” Anslinger declared, specifically choosing to call cannabis by a name with Mexican roots. By the 1960s, despite Anslinger’s dedicated efforts to keep cannabis prohibited, the use of the plant skyrocketed amongst the country’s youth. Anslinger’s prohibition aspirations had transformed cannabis into a counterculture weapon. In contrast, during the early 1900s, cannabis was often the primary ingredient in medicinal extracts sold in drug stores. Cannabis was now the drug of choice for beatniks, vagabonds, jazz musicians and rock stars, all thanks to Mr. Anslinger. Canada is moving in the right direction by legalizing cannabis. By having a legal system involving regulation, distribution and controlled sales, we are making marijuana dull and uninteresting to Canadian teens – teenagers should never use recreational cannabis. Moreover, we are adding sales and taxes from adult purchases into the legal economy. Finally, I believe harder drugs such as cocaine or heroin should remain illegal, but an improved way to regulate these addictive, poisonous substances is through harm reduction – a process involving counselling, therapy and medication, rather than through forced-detox and banishment into the prison system.

Argument may be over: Lebron best of all time

sports time-out with

Bruce Penton

Since Michael Jordan retired from the National Basketball Association for the third and final time in 2003, it was regarded as sacrilegious to suggest that His Airness was not the best NBA player of all time. Sure, it was debatable, with the likes of Cousy, West, Russell, Robertson, Bird, Magic and Chamberlain in the mix. But the consensus, surrounded by reverence, seemed to be that Jordan was the best ever. Now, however, the talk is veering down a different path. In fact, the argument may be

over. Can we agree that the GOAT — the Greatest Of All Time — is LeBron James? The NBA’s current dominant player, James — a chiseled, athletic, 6-foot-8, 250-pounder and four-time Most Valuable Player award winner — plays the game like he’s a man against boys. Virtually unstoppable when he decides he’s going to score, James put up 30-plus points in 12 of Cleveland’s 22 playoff games as his Cavaliers fell to the powerful Golden State Warriors in the Finals, capping a season when for a time it appeared as if the Cavs might miss the playoffs altogether. But riding James’ strong shoulders, they knocked off Indianapolis in the first round, surprised the Eastern Conference pennant-winning Toronto Raptors with a four-game sweep in the second round

and then made it to the Finals by beating the Celtics in Game 7 on Boston’s parquet floor. James was Mr. Everything in that game, with 35 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists. Making it to the NBA Finals is a tough task, but James has led his teams — the Cavs and Miami Heat — to eight consecutive Finals appearances. It’s unprecedented in the modern-day NBA. Jordan made it to the finals six times (not in consecutive years, though) and won all six. James has only three titles to his credit. James has few detractors, but many admirers. Said Coach Steve Kerr of the Warriors during the recent Finals: “They have a guy who’s playing basketball at a level I’m not sure anyone has ever seen before.” And there’s this from Dave Deckard of

Pause for Reflection

By Ken Rolheiser

Desperate for God’s touch but avoiding it My Uncle Frank was a carpenter and passed on great wisdom to his hammer swinging nephews when he said, “Hit the nail on the head.” As a senior he was still up on the rooftop, close to heaven, swinging a hammer. Father Brendan McGuire may make some of us uncomfortable with his accuracy in hitting the nail on the head when it comes to conversion. In his “Fear No One” homily he says, “For some of us, we fear actually the Lord himself. We fear that the Lord will do everything he says. “It is not that we are afraid that he will not do it, but afraid that he actually will touch our hearts and transform us.” And here is the catch as McGuire explains it, “Most of us like things the way we have them. We are not really here to change. We come to Mass on Sunday, but we don’t want any change. “We say: ‘I’m happy. I’ve got my spouse. I’ve got my kids. Everything is good. I got a job. Everything is going well. I’m not looking for change.’ But you see, the Lord is looking for change!” McGuire is describing all of us sinners. Some of us do not go to church on Sunday morning. We say the same things: “I’m happy. I’ve got my spouse. I’ve got my kids. Everything is good. I got a job. Everything is going well. I’m

not looking for change.” But the Lord is looking to change us because of his great love for us. He will not quit. And it is for our own good, because he loves us and wants only the best for us. If we are truly honest with ourselves, we feel that we are not worthy because of the “stuff” we’ve done. And we have dulled our consciences just enough so it doesn’t bother us much anymore. But God has not stopped loving us. He has not given up on us. McGuire explains it further in his reflection: “The last fear is the most dominant effect in people’s lives: the fear that I’m not worthy. “We know we need the touch. We know we need it because we are broken. We can feel the pain. We can feel the suffering. We can feel the wounds. “But we say: ‘No, Lord. I’m not worthy. Don’t touch me. I cannot be the one you want to heal. Look at all the stuff I’ve done. I’ve done this. I’ve said that. I haven’t done this. And I haven’t done that.’ We say no, no. Not me. “Yet we know inside our hearts we are desperate for God’s touch. I’m not worthy because of my own merit. None of us are. We are worthy only because God has called us to this table. And because he has done that, he promised to heal every one of our wounds.”

Jesus speaks to us in Isaiah 43:1, “Fear not, I have redeemed you.” If Jesus were to meet us today he would greet us with, “Do not be afraid.” Don’t we get it? HE JUST WANTS TO MEET US! And it is as easy as, “In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. I’m here, God.”

SB Nation: “James may be the best player of all time, but Jordan is the greatest winner of all time.” By the time King James is done, though, he may surpass Jordan’s six titles. Trying to beat Golden State with a weak supporting cast proved to be impossible, so as a free agent after this year, James is searching for a good landing spot. Houston? With James Harden and Chris Paul? Philly? With Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons? A change of scenery might be just what James needs to give him a new lease on life, and another three or four NBA titles. • RJ Currie of “NHL prospect Carson Meyer was ‘freaking out’ when he discovered a 25-inch tapeworm that had been in his intestines for almost a year.

Quote of the Week... “It is a wise father that knows his own child.” - William Shakespeare

Writing a letter

As I prepare for a new adventure one of the things that I wanted to do was buy some decent paper and write letters to friends and family. I went into one of the big stores and I couldn’t find what I was looking for. Apparently only wedding invites are really the only big thing people send Kelly Running in the mail these days. There Observer Staff wasn’t much for nice stationery to craft a letter. I did find some and managed to find some envelopes as well . . . but it wasn’t what I remember as a kid. Back when people my age had pen pals there was all kinds of fancy, fun stationery out there. Although that was also at a time that cursive was taught in school as well. This still blows my mind; that cursive isn’t taught in school anymore. In fact when I was coaching, I had the girls do positivity journals. They weren’t mandatory. But I thought it was a fun way to try to build confidence and it allowed me to get to know the girls (who liked participating in it) a little bit better. The one day I wrote in the journals in cursive, and my cursive isn’t the neatest. In fact I’ve always wished I had nice hand writing, but as hard as I try it remains itty bitty and narrow. I’m sure handwriting analysis has something to say about it, but I digress. The day that I wrote in cursive in their books I had some come up to me and explain they couldn’t read it. I knew it wasn’t taught in school and had attempted to print, but I didn’t have much time and handwriting just flows so nicely when you’re trying to get things done. It’s a lost art form really, and that’s coming from someone who isn’t very artful with theirs. In my opinion kids are missing out. Not only on learning cursive - after all what if their grandmother writes them a note, in a card, or a little letter - but they’re also missing out on mail and letters. The excitement of receiving a piece of mail was always warranted. Who was it from and what did it say?! Being that it’s tangible too, it’s something from that person. Something they put effort and thought into. Something that if they made a mistake, did they write you the letter again, scratch it out, or did they have whiteout? It’s something that makes you feel special. Emails, texts, and any form of social media is nice. It’s instant messaging. But, with the instantaneousness of it all, there’s just something missing. It’s nice they take the time to message you, but there’s a very real difference between receiving an email and receiving a letter in the mail. When I left Carlyle I wrote a couple of people some notes and received a few in turn. One of which I have packed away in my things to go with me on my new adventure. It’s a heart felt card; one that’s encouraging and full of support, and was written out with love. When you send something in the mail though, because we’re so used to the instant world that has developed that we live in, it can be difficult to wait for that person to get it. But, in my opinion, it is by far a more exciting means of communication than an email message.

Heart of the Moose Mountains

Being the goal . . . not the goaded We were working in groups of four, drawing and then painting a depiction of the fairy tale we’d been assigned. This was not normally the type of elementary school assignment that appealed to me, but I got lucky. My group was given “Three Billy Goats Gruff” and that meant drawing trolls. As someone who did not enjoy doing artwork, at least my Shelley Luedtke mistakes would look intentional when it came to the troll. The folklore of many different cultures has some version of trolls, but a collection of stories and illustrations published in 1879 formed many of our impressions of the mythical creatures. Trolls lure and kidnap princesses, usurp power from the powerful, or force heroes to match wits with them, while living in isolation in caves or under bridges. They are often drawn as disproportionately large with exaggerated facial features, or unusually small with some peculiar characteristic, and are sometimes scary, even dangerous, and rarely helpful to human beings. Which brings us to where we find ourselves today and the impact of untold online trolls who, equally unhelpful to human beings, have wreaked havoc on the lives, reputations and well-being of those who have found themselves in the path of their harassment. Referring to them as trolls comes from the fishing term used to attract, bait and reel in fish, but it seems equally appropriate to invoke its use as the mythical creature, since online trolls hide, prowl and prey on whoever they can with little regard for the pain they inflict. Well, that’s not true. They do it with total delight in the pain they unleash. The inflammatory comments they post are intended to bait and reel in victims, to goad people into starting quarrels, to provoke an emotional response and give rise to heated arguments. Their goal is to cause trouble, sow discord, or worse. Those who take the bait can find themselves the

object of personal attacks and threats. And these attacks can get vicious--like ones mocking the memorial pages of those being remembered by family and friends, or trolls seeking out people who have searched for information or help on topics like body image or depression and finding comments telling them they are ugly, useless and should end their lives. One individual with a rather infamous online presence remarked how laughably easy we have made it for trolls. He said they choose a group to attack--like those struggling with weight issues-and pull as many pictures as they want because people are constantly putting their photos up, then write hurtful, spiteful captions, re-post them and wait for others to share them across multiple platforms. A report by the Pew Research Center studying online conduct concluded: the bad guys are winning. But all is not lost. There are always ways--if not to shut them down--then at least slow them down, and minimize their impact. Most effective is to avoid the places where the fishing is fine; the online forums and discussions making us most vulnerable, and then, of course, controlling our responses and refusing to take the bait. But there’s something else too. Many will remember two of the gymnasts competing in the Rio Olympics who were targets of online body-shaming and racial attacks. It galvanized an effort to flood them with words of kindness and support. There was an international outpouring to overpower the ugly with beauty. In our version of the fairy tale project we decided the goats worked together to outwit the troll and banished him back under the bridge to nurse his wounds, while they moved to higher ground where the meadow was lush and the eating was good. That’s the thing about higher ground, it is a much nicer place to be than hiding in the shadows, lying in wait for the next victim. We just need a whole lot more people wanting to take the high road. Not only is the view much better, it’s that much further from those intent on dragging us down. That’s my outlook.

Financial Focus


Managing Your Money: Worthwhile renos start here There are a lot of reasons for renovating a home. If you’re among the many Canadians intent on tackling a home reno project this year, here are some important tips: Plan it Whether your goal is to create more usable space, make your home more energy efficient, or to enhance its value, figure out what renovations you want to do and why. A contractor can help minimize mistakes and an interior designer can help you create an appropriate design proposal. Budget it Once you know what you want to do, create a realistic and affordable budget. It’s not unusual for extra expenses to crop up, so set aside a contingency fund of at least 10% of your budget. Fund it Know your financing options. You could access a secured or unsecured line of credit, refinance a mortgage or

a personal loan – but the best financing option of all is to set up a savings plan and/or use money you have already saved specifically for your reno. Sweat equity is a great way to save money – but only if you are confident you can do the work yourself. Also look into government support for such projects as improving the energy efficiency of your home. Local utilities may also offer grants or rebates. Research it If you’re using a contractor, choose carefully. Get recommendations from friends, coworkers or relatives, be sure to get multiple quotes and a reasonable price, always ask for references and always check them out. Check to see if you need building permits for your renovations. If you live in a condo, check with your building’s management for any approvals you may

need. If you’re renovating to increase the value of your home, keep in mind that some improvements offer better returns than others. In any case, how much you spend should depend on where you live as well as how long you plan to live there. For example, the value of an over-thetop reno in a lower-cost neighbourhood may not be recognized by potential homebuyers. On the other hand, a reno that improves energy efficiency may not only lower your operating costs and pay back your investment over time, it can also be a selling feature. A real estate agent can help you determine the renos that will get the best return on your investment. And before you start, to be sure you’ll have the money you need for your reno – and for all your other life goals – talk to your professional advisor.

HEALTH HUB What do you know about cystic fibrosis? Did you know that, in Canada, cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common deadly illness in children and young adults? The disease currently affects more than 4,200 Canadians, and it’s estimated that one out of 3,600 children born in Canada carry the disease. What is CF? Cystic fibrosis is an incurable illness that affects various organs, mainly the lungs and digestive system, and is characterized by unusually thick mucus and pancreatic secretions. It results in chronic infections that progressively destroy the lungs. CF also causes a loss of pancreatic enzymes, which in turn leads to vitamin deficiencies and difficulties digesting proteins and fats. In addition to frequent lung infections, the disease’s main symptoms include a persistent and highly productive cough, a whistling sound when breathing, shortness of

breath and intestinal distress. CF is hereditary: when both parents are carriers of the defective gene that causes the illness, their child has a 25% chance of being born with the disease; a 50% chance of car-

rying the gene; and a 25% chance of having neither the illness nor the defective gene. To find out more about CF, visit Cystic Fibrosis Canada’s website at www.

Community Construction: Carlyle Moto Cross Club building completed Lynne Bell

Observer Staff

Thanks to community support, the Carlyle Moto Cross Club will have a new addition to their racing home at Bowan Rekken Moto-X Track Memorial Park, as a new multi-use building is now ready for the racing season. “It will be used for meetings, for concessions, registration on race days and more,” says Kelly Rekken of the Carlyle Moto Cross Club. “The Moto Cross Club would like to thank each and every one of our sponsors who have provided funding for our building during the past three years. The most recent donation was $1,000 from the Carlyle Lions Club and the ongoing support of local businesses also deserves special thanks from everyone at the Carlyle Moto Cross

Club.” “We’ve had tents before,” says Susan Rekken of Carlyle Moto Cross. “And when the wind blows or there’s cold weather or rain, it can be a real problem. This new building is a great addition, which is greatly appreciated by us all.” Since 2004, dedicated racers and fans have enjoyed the action at Carlyle’s Bowan Rekkan Park, built as a living tribute by family and friends to honour the life of Kelly and Susan’s son, Bowan. “It first started when one of Bowan’s friends came up with the idea of building a track near Carlyle, as a way to honour him,” Susan previously told The Observer. “The kids that were racing were having to go all over to do it and they really wanted to honour Bowan and have that memorial closer to Carlyle.”

The park is also unofficially dedicated to Kyle Lees, the son of Brian and Marylee Lees, who also passed away as a young man. The Rekkens and the Lees are friends and share a special bond. The Lees’ daughter, Kate Lees is now a champion racer and is this year’s president of the Southeast Cornerstone Racing Circuit. Carlyle’s Bowan Rekken Memorial Park hosts SCRC-sanctioned events, with two days of racing scheduled for Saturday, July 7 and Saturday, Sept. 15 (Homespun Weekend). The SCRC also holds races in Oxbow, Estevan, Weyburn and Assiniboia - and racers of all ages and classes typically provide spectators with a day of high speeds, big jumps and more. “We welcome volunteers and anyone interested in finding out

From South Africa to Saskatchewan: Carlyle’s Full Gospel Church welcomes new pastor Lynne Bell

Observer Staff

Pastor David Meisner, his wife Krista and their five children have recently moved to Carlyle from South Africa, after nine years of living and serving in and around the city of Durban. Pastor Meisner is now the minister at Carlyle’s Full Gospel Church and says: “We’ve already felt really welcomed by the church here.” Both of the Meisners grew up in Saskatchewan - David grew up in Eston, while Krista grew up in the TrossachsPangman area. Their journey from South Africa to Saskatchewan ultimately began in 2009, when they moved to South Africa as missionaries. “We did a church plant there in Durban,” says Pastor David. “And we did much of our work with, which is a registered charity.’ “‘Thando’ is the Zulu word for ‘love’ and our work there was about taking the love of Jesus Christ to the world.” “We ran feeding programs and after school programs there, as well as in other areas.” says Pastor David. “The church in Carlyle is one of the churches that supported us in our work there.” “About a year ago, it was time to renew our (South African) visas,” he explains. “We prayed about it and decided not to renew them.”

We started preparing them for running the church there and supporting them from here.” “We’d always intended for the church there to be self-sustaining,” he says. “But it was still a big step of faith for us to let go.” “But we knew that God wouldn’t have us

come all the way back to Canada for nothing,” he says. “We had a heart to return here to continue to have a ministry of some kind.” “My wife Krista had told me to get my resume ready, and the very next day, we received an email from Pastor Dan McNaughton, who had been here at the church in Carlyle.” “A few years ago, we’d been to Carlyle and we both felt something special, but we’d never really talked about it un-

Pictured is the Meisner family: (Back row, l-r) Pastor David Meisner, Jabin, 14, Kaitlyn, 17, and wife and mom Krista Meisner and (front row, l-r) Caleb, 9, Eliana, 3, and Jendayya, 10. til this opportunity came up.” “Sunday, May 27 was my first week preaching here,” says Pastor David. “We got a really warm reception at the church and we had faith that they’d accepted us, too.” “In South Africa, a big part of what we do was reaching out to

widows and orphans, but really, we accept all people, just as we are accepted wherever we go to serve the Lord.” “So I’d really like to welcome everyone to the church here in Carlyle,” he says. “We’ve really felt welcomed by the church here. They’re great people and we look forward to working with

them in the future.” “I don’t know what God has in store for us here, but we’re looking forward to living here and we have a heart to help people in need in every community,” adds Pastor David. “We hope to be here long-term and we’re really looking forward to life here in Carlyle.”

Farming in the eyes of the early settlers By Calvin Daniels One can imagine the earliest settlers, those who dreamt of a piece of land they could call their own on which to farm and raise a family, arriving on the Canadian Prairies and thinking there was so much grassland it would never all be farmed. But those first brave settlers were quickly followed by more, and more, and more, each sharing in the dream of land ownership, and the freedom to farm and raise families. Today many of us can count ourselves among the descendants of those settlers who turned acre after acre of native grassland into grain growing farmland, primarily what in the early days giving the region a worldwide reputation for producing the crop. And along the way the grasslands simply fell away to the plow. That is why today “temperate grasslands, which include our Canadian Prairies, are considered one of the most endangered ecosystems in the world,” related Nadia Mori, Range Management Extension Specialist in a re-

cent article in Agriview. “In Saskatchewan, it is estimated that approximately 20 per cent of native prairie remains intact. Our remaining native prairie is a valuable resource that touches many lives and interest groups. Ranchers rely on the sustainable use of prairie for their livelihoods. For others, native prairie may be cultural, spiritual or recreational importance. Many landowners, government and non-government agencies play a role in the stewardship and protection of native prairie.” To promote such stewardship and protection and to raise the recognition of the importance of native rangelands to sustainable growth in our province, Saskatchewan’s ministries of agriculture and environment declared the third week of June as Native Prairie Appreciation Week (NPAW). “The purpose of the week is to raise awareness and appreciation of native prairie ecosystems and their importance to Saskatchewan’s people as well as to the environmental and agricultural sectors,” noted Mori. There will certainly

be those among readers here who question the value of protecting native grasslands. They are not exactly as high profile in the world on conservation media as say the rainforests of South America, but in many ways their potential value is a shared one. New science emerges almost every day which begins the process of looking at plants in new ways in terms of what they may offer in terms of medicinal components and genes to fortify crucial food crops against things like drought and disease. Through science we are also beginning to better understand that few things in our natural world exist in isolation of each other. To lose a wildflower species whose home is temperate grasslands might well end an insect species reliant on the flower for food, and with the insect extinct a bird species might be in peril as they sought out the bug as food. Nature is an interconnect tapestry and when mankind makes the mistake of pulling on too many threads, what the world may look like regionally and beyond is drawn into question.

Alida News Submitted by Edel Cowan

Shelly Cowan and daughter Ainsley met up with Kelsey and Lacie and they all attended the Dog Walk in Estevan on June 3. Ainsley was very excited as she and her dog Sunday participated in the Walk and Sunday was said to be the prettiest dog there and they received a trophy. Congratulations Ainsley and Sunday on a job well done. The Alida community extends sincere sympathy to Ferne Madsen and Wayne Smith on the death of her mother Margaret Roebuck on June 4. Her funeral service was held June 14 in Yorkton. The Alida community also extends sincere sympathy to Alan and Kathleen Arthur on the death of their daughter Jaclyn Morris who passed away June 6 at the age of 39 years. A Memorial service was held June 11 in Regina. Condolences are also extended to all other family members as well. Sincerest sympathy

is also extended to Dale and Linda Potapinski on the sudden death of their little granddaughter Evelyn who passed away June 6 at the age of 6 months. Evelyn was the daughter of Barry and Tam Potapinski of Winnipeg. Deepest condolences are extended to all of the family members. Gray and Edel Cowan left on June 5 for a few days holidaying in SW Saskatchewan. They toured the Cypress Hills and visited the Fort Walsh site, returning home June 7. Jeff Cowan, Regina spent June 9 visiting with his brother Tim, Shelly Cowan at the Moose Creek Regional Park and enjoyed doing some fishing.

There are only two students from the Alida area (actually from Auburnton) that are graduating this year from Oxbow – they are Emmitt and Orrin Swallow. Congratulations boys on a job well done and Good luck in your future endeavours. Boy, did we ever receive another rain storm June 10 night – it came down by the buckets full resulting in anywhere from 1 inch to 2 inches of moisture. Now it can kindly turn the taps off, enough moisture for a while. The sprayers are going to have a hard time doing their job if it continues to rain. However these rains should help the gardens grow, the lawns are getting taller by the second I think – it’s time to mow grass again, a never ending job. Boy did our back lawn ever take a beating during the winter, we have big and I mean

Alameda Underwater

Alameda was one of the communities in this corner of the province that was hard-hit by recent torrential rains. Instead of hosting their annual Firefighters Rodeo, members of the Alameda Fire Department set off the town’s emergency sirens at 3 a.m. on Saturday, June 2 and set to work doorknocking, checking basements for flooding, and assisting their community through the weekend. Firefighters, vac truck owner/operators and residents all pulled together and within 12 hours: “The water situation was under control,” according to Alameda Deputy Fire Chief and Command Officer, EMO, Dwayne Henderson.

The Alameda Rink was one of many of the town’s buildings affected by recent extreme rainfall and flooding. Command Officer and Emergency Measures Officer, Dwayne Henderson said: “We’d like to send a big thank you to the firefighters, those who came with vac trucks, the Air Cadets and all of the many, many people who came out to help Alameda.”

Members of the Alameda Fire Department set up a command station and spent much of the weekend of June 2-3 and beyond assisting members of the community. They were led by Deputy Fire Chief Dwayne Henderson who also acted as the Command Officer, EMO (Emergency Measure

Instead of hosting their annual FireFighters Rodeo - a friendly competition in which area fire departments hone their skills - members of the Alameda Fire Department spent the weekend of June 2-3 responding to widespread flooding throuhout their community. Pictured is the park where the competition was to take place.

Happy father's day - June 17th!

“We have so many people to thank,” says firefighter Dwayne Henderson of Alameda, who also acted as Command Officer, during that community’s recent flooding. “Everyone pulled together and made a great big team. If I’ve missed anyone, I’m sorry. But many, many people came out to help and we’re so thankful that they did.” Pictured are volunteers from the Alameda library who provided meals and coffee throughout the day.

Denton (Grant) Brehaut 1944 - 2018

Denton (Grant) Brehaut, 73 of Saskatoon, passed away in the early morning hours of April 23 2018 with family at his side at the Langham senior’s home after a battle with dementia. Born June 20th 1944 in Wawota Saskatchewan he was the youngest of 4 children. As a young child he had beautiful, blonde curly hair which his mother kept in ringlets until just before he started school. He enjoyed school and friends and sports particularly football and hockey. The 3 mile walk to school became a little easier one year in 1955 when he entered a contest for the Saskatchewan 50th year celebrations in Wawota the winner was to write someone’s history from the area. With hard work and some help from his mom he won and became the proud owner of a bicycle. Grant had great aspirations of being a doctor, pilot or a football player. He attended Pre Med at the University of Saskatchewan for a short time. He also trained as a pilot in the RCAF. He didn’t pursue professional football, but like all Saskatchewanites he was a passionate Roughrider fan until the day he died. With family growing he became employed at the potash mine in Allan, SK. He worked in potash and gold mines in Rocanville SK, and Yellowknife NT, to name a couple. He had a love of music, country mostly and spaghetti westerns. So much so a few of his children have middle names of favorite singers or movie personas. He did like a good joke and was a bit of a prankster from time to time. He had a sweet tooth and never turned down a dessert. He was also a pretty good cook, and enjoyed a good BBQ and a cold beer. Grant was preceded in death by his parents Denton and Marion (Grace) Brehaut. He is survived by his 5 children; Heather (Kevin) Imrie (Slave Lake), Troy (Fiona) Brehaut (Edmonton), Lisa (Joe) Pandev (Yellowknife), Travis (Lorelle) Brehaut (Saskatoon), Shane (Maia) Brehaut (Yellowknife), his grandchildren Joshua, Caleb, Jessie, Mitchell, Emma, Cadence, Jaxon, Greyson and Finn, and great-granddaughter Tatum. He is also survived by his two sisters Nola Mowbray and Myrna Olson (both of Wawota) and brother Wayne Brehaut (Athabasca). The family would like to thank the kind and compassionate nurses, caregivers and staff at the Langham senior’s home for their assistance, guidance and support. A private memorial will be held at a later date. Auto Miscellaneous

Evelyn Lorrae Potapinski, aged six months and �ive days, died peacefully in the arms of her loving parents on June 6, 2018 at the Children’s Hospital in Winnipeg Manitoba. Evelyn was born December 1, 2017. Evelyn will be sadly missed by her parents Barry and Tamara Potapinski, sisters Claire and Lylah, her grandparents Brenda and Larry Klapprat from Anola Manitoba, her grandparents Linda and Dale Potapinski from Alida Saskatchewan, along with her great grandparents and many aunts, uncles and cousins. Evelyn spent her �irst few weeks in NICU in Winnipeg and we were so incredibly happy to be able to bring her home just in time for Christmas. As she grew, so did the love and affection from her family. She shared countless giggles with her sisters who always sang to her. Evelyn loved to be entertained by them. We will miss kissing her soft hair and her grasp on our �ingers. We will forever cherish her last family vacation at Riding Mountain National Park just a week prior to her death. Evelyn will always be remembered by her bright smile and magni�icent blue eyes. We would like to thank the specialists that worked with Evelyn and the staff at both PICU and NICU at Children’s Hospital along with the NICU staff at St. Boniface Hospital. Celebration of Life will be held, Friday, June 15, 2018 2:00pm at Glen Lawn Funeral Home 455 Ladgimodiere Blvd. Memorial donations can be made to the Ronald McDonald room at Children’s Hospital in Winnipeg, 566 Bannatyne Avenue R3A 0G7.

In Memoriam

THANK YOU I want to express heartfelt thank yous to my friends and family who were so kind with words of sympathy, visits, phone calls, cards, food and flowers after my sister, Norma, passed away. I also want to thank the staff at Moose Mountain Lodge for their kindness toward me when I visited Norma. No request was ever too much; the girls were always happy to accommodate and the care Norma received was exceptional. Thank you all! Clara Coffey

2018 Saskatchewan Agriculture Student Scholarship winners announced Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart presented four agriculture scholarships to students from across the province. “The future of our industry relies on dedicated, inspiring young individuals,” Stewart said. “This year, there was no shortage of outstanding applicants deserving of this award.” Emma Hinz of Humboldt, received $4,000 toward her agriculture-related post-secondary studies as the grand-prize winner of the 2018 Agriculture Student Scholarship. Emma’s winning essay submission discussed how her unique dietary restrictions have shaped her food story and helped her recognize the importance of agricultural advancements. “I’m excited to share my food story with Saskatchewan,” Hinz said. “I am also excited to share Saskatchewan’s food story with the rest of the world.” Laura Carruthers of Frenchman Butte, Kati Culbertson of Redvers and Crystal Daniel of Avonlea received runner-up scholarships valued at $2,000. The Agriculture Student Scholarship Program identifies young people who are advocates for agriculture and leverages their passion and ability to tell the story of Saskatchewan agriculture. “I would like to congratulate the four winners of this year’s scholarship and thank them, along with all of the other applicants, for their dedication to the industry,” Stewart said. Applicants were required to provide a letter of reference and submit a 1,000 word science-based essay or a three-minute video-based on their personal food story.

Maryfield Villa News Submitted by Janet Mark The rains came! 4-6 inches, depending on your street address. The Villa got a downpour. DO NOT ENTER the Courtyard by the south tunnel! It has a trench across to divert a future deluge and to prevent it from seeping around the foundations. The discussion at Circle of Friends last week focused on Home Remedies. Our mothers depended on a mustard plaster for a bad cough. My grandmother went to Alberta in the 1890s with only a bottle turpentine and a bottle of whiskey for medicine. “The turpentine would cleanse a wound. The whiskey would put a wounded man to sleep.” Other remedies were a bran poultice to bring down infection. When the TB sanitarium opened the cure was; bed rest, milk from TB free cows, plain simple food and sunshine. Many of us re-

membered the Watkins or Raleigh travellers who went around the farms with their home remedies and bulk cooking spices. We have been enjoying all the beauty of the courtyard. Fred was serenading his wife out there, (on the mouth organ). Indoors, the fluorescents have been replaced, the drapes washed, and a new smoke detector installed. Charlotte Kovach, Janet Mark and Roy Bortolotto attended the funeral for Nettie Klassen. She lived next door at the Haven, and was a member of the weekly bible study there. Kola Evangelical Mennonite Church was filled. The service was led Rev. Richard Klassen, with members of Nettie’s ten families taking part. On Sunday evening the German Mennonite congregation in Mary-

field held a Hymn-sing service at the Villa. It was led by Peter Ens; his son Lucas read scripture. Dieter Penner gave a two minute sermon, as well as playing the piano. The next evening Carol Veysey and her 4-Given men came to practice at the Villa. They are trying out new music, in preparation for a Woodstock, Ont., competition in July. Two young ladies, Ruth Kliever and Tina Neufeld, have joined our staff. These girls have been coming to the Villa with their parents for church services, so we are happy to see them daily. The only visitors this week, (according to the guest book), were Jim and Carol Adair, Moosomin, with Alan; Therese Lamontagne to visit the Wawota girls; and Rebeka Penner. June 1, Charlotte showed a movie, with popcorn.

Flood recovery centres under the Provincial Disaster Assistance Program will be set up in both communities after streets, basements and yards were drenched. The centres will provide support to residents and a provincial building official will be available to speak with residents about structural safety. Although the province says that it is too early to determine full storm damages, the Saskatchewan government expects additional applications for disaster aid. Lampman was the only municipality to declare a state of emergency after receiving 12 inches of rain June 2. The community experienced widespread damage, including “tens of thousands of dollars of damage to the streets,” according to Town Administrator, Greg Wallin. Currently, Lampman and Alameda are the only communities eligible for assistance, but the province says it expects to receive additional applications for disaster aid in the coming days. To receive help under the province’s Assistance Program, a community does not have to declare a state of emergency before applying. However, a community does need to request that it be designated a disaster area.

Most politicians stand tall on tariffs By Murray Mandryk You can’t blame people for tuning out of politics because of the sneaky, self-serving and mealy-mouthed way politicians sometimes do things. But maybe part of the problem is we don’t give enough credit to politicians when they do behave honourable. So let’s offer some credit today … and maybe a little bit of criticism. The issue in play should be familiar to you by now, the escalating trade war between Canada and U.S. There are some out there apt to side with U.S. President Donald Trump’s criticism of Liberal Premier Justin Trudeau as being weak simply because they share those sentiments. Some might even share

Trump’s view that Canadian supply management _ especially as it is applied to the Canadian dairy industry is wrong. And those of a partisan nature might go as far as to see such criticism as a political opportunity to advance either the Conservatives’ or New Democrats’ political cause. This is troubling. There is too much at stake. Here are the realities: For as wrong-headed subsidies to the Canadian dairy industry may be in the view of some people, the 270-per-cent tariffs Trump speaks of only apply to some products in special circumstances of over supply. Both countries provide subsidies and they are about equally. In fact, we should be aware of Trump’s hy-

pocrisy, given the U.S.’s $349 billion in subsidies to its own agriculture industry in the past 20 years. Contrary to Trump’s message to his base about how unfairly the U.S. is treated by the rest of the world, consider the average tariff rate of all G-7 nations: USA. 1.6 per cent; European Union, 1.6 per cent; United Kingdom, 1.6 per cent; Italy, 1.6 per cent; Germany, 1.6 per cent; France, 1.6 percent, Japan, 1.4 per cent, and; Canada, .8 per cent. Yes, on average, Americans, and virtually everyone else, charges twice the tariffs as Canadians. A massive trade deficit? Trump is incapable of telling the truth. Here are the really numbers for 2017: Canada’s US exports were $341.2 billion compared with: $332.8 billion in Canadian imports to the US. The Americans enjoyed an $8.4 billion surplus in total goods and services trade. But we are straying from the point of this column, those politicians who have stood tall in the face of these unfair tariffs. In last week’s column, credit was given to Premier Scott Moe and his predecessor Brad Wall for skipping past partisan opportunities to take shots at Trudeau and standing firm against the tariffs from the very beginning. Conservative Opposition leader Andrew Scheer

was rightly criticized for initially taking cheap shots at Trudeau and the federal government for not doing enough to protect aluminum and steel. But since then, Scheer appears to have seen the error of his ways and has sent out strong signals of opposition to Trump’s tariffs. Perhaps those Conservatives advising Trudeau behind the scenes, former leaders and ministers like Brian Mulroney, Rona Ambrose and Perrin Beatty, have spoken to Scheer. It’s a message that can’t be repeated enough to Scheer’s followers who also need to know that former prime minister Stephen Harper, Alberta UPC leader Jason Kenney and newly elected Conservative premier Doug Ford are all strongly opposed to the tariffs. Also credit the provincial and federal NDP for doing what the Conservatives and Liberals are doing, standing up for the nation. Yes, there has been slippage. Saskatchewan NDP leader Ryan Meili initially tried to tie Doug Ford’s admiration of Trump (pre-tariff) to Moe’s eagerness to have Ford’s support in the carbon tax. And the Sask. Party is now clumsily soliciting support by tying the tariffs to the Liberal/ NDP carbon tax in online petitions. But overall, politicians deserve credit.
