Fire devastates manufacturing company Residents evacuated as potentially toxic smoke fills sky

Fire fully engulfed the main building at Redekop Manufacturing on Monday morning and resulted in an evacuation order for the area being issued due to thick, potenially toxic smoke

By TERRY PUGH tpugh@ccgazette.ca

A

fire at an industrial plant northwest of Saskatoon in the RM of Corman Park on Monday morning resulted in the evacuation of residents within a mile-wide radius of the property and closed a stretch of the Yellowhead Highway.

PHOTO GALLERY See more photos relating to this story in our online gallery plus breaking news as it happens online for free at: www.ccgazette.ca

According to RCMP Cst. Bill Rowley of the Warman RCMP, the fire at Redekop Manufacturing, adjacent to Highway 16 just east of the Dalmeny Access, began at about 8:00. Workers and bystanders were evacuated just before 9:00 by RCMP as a large cloud of potentially toxic smoke filled the air. The black smoke drifted in a northeasterly direction and could be detected several kilometers away in the communities of Martensville and Warman. The cause of the fire is not known and there were no major injuries reported. A number of firefighters remained on the scene dousing hotspots late into the afternoon. The fire was brought under control at about noon and the evacuation order was lifted, allowing residents return to their homes. According to Staff Sgt. Pat Zunti of the Warman RCMP, the presence of hazardous materials and compressed air at the site and the potential for release of toxic gases into the air prompted the evacuation. Firefighters were also temporarily pulled away from the property after several small explosions took place in the metal-clad manufacturing plant. Members of the Warman RCMP Detachment, assisted by Corman Park Police, diverted traffic on Highway 16 plus restricted traffic on nearby grid roads to allow emergency personnel to attend to the fire. Highway traffic was diverted for several hours on Highway 16 at 71st Street to the south and the Dalmeny Grid to the north. The Dalmeny Fire Department, Martensville Fire Department, and Warman Fire Department responded to the call, as did Saskatoon Fire & Protective Services. One of the biggest hurdles for firefighters was the lack of water at the scene. A total of four tanker trucks were employed to haul water to the site to battle the

blaze. Once the fire was brought under control, the Dalmeny and Martensville fire departments remained on scene to douse any remaining hotspots. There is no estimate of damage to the building but the entire structure was consumed in the incident. It is believed the fire started in the paint shop section of the building and quickly spread before the majority of employees were at the plant to begin work for the day. Investigators will sift through the rubble in the coming days looking for confirmation as to what started the blaze. Redekop Manufacturing produces machinery parts for the agriculture, mining, oil and forestry industries and is believed to employ around 35 people.

PROUD TRADITION Hague celebrates arena renovations with tribute to hockey alumni By TERRY PUGH tpugh@ccgazette.ca

H

ague is a town that takes its hockey seriously. Just ask Jake Sawatzky. The long-time resident of the Hague area started playing for the Hague Royals in the early 1950s, when all the games were on outdoor rinks and the shivering fans watched the games from their perch atop the massive snowbanks surrounding the boards. ”It wasn’t a rink like this one, that’s for sure,” said Sawatzky in an interview prior to dropping the puck for the ceremonial face-off at the first annual Hague Royals - Rosthern Wheat Kings alumni game last Saturday. “First we had to shovel for a week to get the snow off the ice. Sometimes the snow was six feet deep. That’s what we had to shovel before we even started playing.” Sawatzky and Dave Derksen, another former Royals player from the 1950s, were guests of honour at the game, held to celebrate the grand re-opening of the Hague arena. Extensive renovations at the arena over the past few months included installation of new seamless plexiglass to give a better view from the lobby seating, and a new set of boards around the ice surface. The game also paid tribute to the many people who played for and coached the Royals over the years. The Rosthern Wheat Kings alumni won the game 8-7 in front of a packed house. Hague alumni team members included Tim Doell, Darrell Fehr, Lyle Funk, Larry Guenter, Larry Heinrichs, Trevor Klassen, Ken Klassen, Harv Sawatzky, Wes Sawatzky, Lester Sawatzky, Jason Sawatzky, Rick Sawatzky, Rod Sawatzky, Arnie Derksen, Gerald Derksen, Ken Derksen, Duane Neudorf, Brad Tkachuk, Steve Miller, Kerry Neufeld, Jim Heinbigner, Art Friesen (coach), Cornie Teichroeb (Manager) and Keith Wagner (trainer). Rosthern’s alumni included Colin Aebig, Rick Pochipinski, Joel Pochipinski, Carl Lehmann, Troi Lehmann, Ron Regehr, Dale Regehr, Dennis Regehr, Kent Blatz, Kirt Blatz, Al Thiessen, Dayne Perrin,k Derek Vanthuyne, Bruce Markwart, Clatyon Martin, Richard Janzen, Alvin Reimer, Brent Brooks, Phil Broten (coach), don Fahl (coach), and Delmar Aebig (coach). Roger Kinzel, manager of this year’s edition of Hague’s senior hockey team, said the Royals have a storied history that goes back a long way. He added the best way to kick off the coming season was to invite people who haven’t been at the rink in recent years to come back and relive some good memories. The Royals begin the season with their home opener on Friday November 4 against the Shellbrook Elks.

ALUMNI TEAM Members of the Hague Royals alumni team included (not in order) Tim Doell, Darrell Fehr, Lyle Funk, Larry Guenter, Larry Heinrichs, Trevor Klassen, Ken Klassen, Harv Sawatzky, Wes Sawatzky, Lester Sawatzky, Jason Sawatzky, Rick Sawatzky, Rod Sawatzky, Arnie Derksen, Gerald Derksen, Ken Derksen, Duane Neudorf, Brad Tkachuk, Steve Miller, Kerry Neufeld, Jim Heinbigner, Art Friesen (coach), Cornie Teichroeb (Manager) and Keith Wagner (trainer).

penalty right away.” In 1965, Hague joined the newly-formed Sask Valley Hockey League and won

the league’s first championship. The first game played indoors in Hague took place in January 1966. The Royals won league championships in 1972, 1975 and 1977. When the SVHL folded in 1978, the Royals moved to the Fort Carlton Hockey League where they won the league title three years in a row from 1979 through 1981. In 1983, they lost one of their players, Melvin Dersken in a car accident, and that same year the old rink burned down. The existing rink was officially opened on December 3, 1985. By then the Royals had joined the 3 Rivers Hockey League and won that league championship two years straight. They then rejoined the SVHL and won that league championship as well in 1987-88. With such a rich history, it’s likely the Hague arena and the Hague Royals will remain a big part of the community for years to come.

HOCKEY HISTORY The coming season will be the latest in a hockey tradition that stretches back to the early days of the district, when informal teams from different school districts squared off against each other. The boys of Pembroke, Gruenfeld, Gruenthal, Hochfield, Neuhorst, and Passchendaele developed rivalries that lasted for years. Flooding the outdoor rinks had to be done with mop and pail. After World War II, the smaller community teams folded and Hague became the central town. According to a series of articles by journalist Karen Briere published in the Village Press in 1988, the name “Royals” was adopted during the 1947-48 season from then-monarch Dave Derksen drops the puck for a ceremonial face off between Rosthern alumni captain Colin Aebig King George VI.

Grand re-opening of 10,000 sq. ft. premises in Warman Neufeld Building Movers’ philosophy of good work at fair rates pays off

W

hen Klaus Neufeld began moving buildings in the Hague area in 1951 for local farmers, he soon gained a reputation for dependability and honesty. Those qualities are still the foundation for the company sixty years later. Neufeld Building Movers celebrated its grand opening of its new 10,000 square-foot shop and office complex in Warman October 21. The company has come a long way since the early 1950s, according to company president Kerry Neufeld, but the values it is built on have never changed. “We treat every house ike it’s our own,” Neufeld said in an interview shortly before the ribbon-cutting ceremony “When you get a brand new car, you don’t want to see it scratched up. It’s the same with a house.” Neufeld said the success of the business is attributable to a lot of dedicated people. “I’ve been blessed with a lot of amazing long-time staff,” he said. “They’re good people who work hard. They have a good work ethic and very good morals and they treat all our customers so well. Respect for customers is key.” He said the company’s relationship to builders is also very important. “Our builders have been very loyal to us,” he said. “We work very hard to keep our builders happy.” Klaus Neufeld and his sons Peter, Abe and Corney operated

the business through the 1950s, primarily serving Hague and the surrounding area. Along the way, Klaus began operating an excavating businesss, so he sold the company to sons Peter and Corney.

By the 1960s, Peter Neufeld became the sole owner. His philosophy was to do good honest work for fair rates. During the 1970s, Ready-to-Move (RTM) homes became more popular, and Neufeld Buiding Movers did an increasing amount of business for area home builders. Peter’s son, Kerry, often tagged along to the job site during the summers. “I grew up watching my

dad and the guys at jobsites from the time I was ten years old,” recalled Kerry Neufeld. “And later on I became part of the crew, so I learned on the job by watching and doing.” In 1994, Kerry got involved in the ownership of the company, becoming company president while his father, Peter, continued on as a partner in the business. Two years later, Peter went into semi-retirement. GROWTH ONGOING In 1998, the company took a big leap forward when it contracted with Warman Home Centre to become the builder’s main building mover. “Up until then, Warman Home Centre had a different house mover as their main

huge step forward for the company, he added. “We’ve gone from a 50 by 50 foot shop to a large heated shop that allows us to do much more in terms of maintenance of our equipment,” he said. Ben Fehr is a new partner in the business. After working for the company for a couple of years, he took the opportunity to join it as a partner. The company itself has grown from 3 employeees in 1994 to 20 employees today. It has gone from a single crew to 4 crews, and the equipment is state-of-theart. In 2009, Neufeld Building Movers received an award for Most Unusual Move for moving a character home across the ice at Emma Lake.

mover, and we were doing the odd move for them,” said Kerry Neufeld. “But then that company experienced some difficulties, and the door opened up for us when Warman Home Centre decided to take a chance on us. Since then we haven’t looked back, and they’ve been just great. It was a very big deal for us to get that contract.” The company moves an average of 300 buildings per year, said Neufeld. More recently, those homes have been going to more places in Saskatchewan, as well as Alberta. “I would say that 80 percent of the homes we’ve moved this past year have been within Saskatchewan,” he said. The opening of the new building represents another

Plenty of election goodies for rural Sask.

C O M M E N T A R Y

Grill your local candidate By Colin Craig, Canadian Taxpayers Federation

If a candidate in the provincial election knocks on your door tonight, have you thought about what you might ask him or her? If you haven’t, here are some questions you might consider asking. Think of the process as like hiring someone for a job. First, why not ask a big picture question – what do they think is the role of government? Should the government just deliver core services like health care, education, and policing? Or should it branch off into more questionable activities such as funding riske arts exhibits, subsidizing businesses and building football domes? And when it comes to providing services for the public, does your candidate support tendering the work out if it can save taxpayers money? Or does he or she believe the government’s role is to run major sectors of the economy? This is an important one to ask, because governments across the world have shown they can save taxpayers money and improve results by partnering with the private sector. So why would it cost the government more? Because not only are salaries often higher in government, but governments benefits are often much higher too. Consider Statistics Canada data that shows in 1977 approximately 71 per cent of government employees in Saskatchewan had workplace pensions versus 26 per cent for everyone else. Today, approximately 100 per cent of government employees in Saskatchewan are now covered while coverage for everyone else remains at 26 per cent. Perhaps ask your local candidate what they will do about the growing pay gap between government workers and everyone else? Let’s not forget about taxation. While tax rates are much better now than a decade ago, there is still work to do. For example, Saskatchewan’s personal income tax rates of 11, 13 and 15 per cent are still higher than Alberta’s 10 per cent single rate. Beyond the actual tax rates, Saskatchewan taxpayers also start paying income taxes before Albertans do. In Alberta, taxpayers pay provincial income taxes on earnings over $16,977. Yet in Saskatchewan, taxpayers start paying provincial income taxes once their earnings hit $14,535. It’s true the government has done a really good job at closing that gap over the past few years, but will it continue to be a priority? Further, Saskatchewan’s school taxes are much higher than Alberta’s and Sask’s small business tax rate (2 per cent) is higher than Manitoba’s rate of 0 per cent; yes, Manitoba recently eliminated its small business tax altogether. What does your candidate think of these gaps? Finally, be sure to grill your candidate about general revenue fund (GRF) debt. This is debt for services delivered years ago - just like putting a dinner on your credit card debt. This debt has been going down, but does your candidate support paying it off as a priority? It should be. After all, paying off the debt will allow the government to free up $420 million in annual interest costs; nearly enough savings to wipe out school taxes ($580 million in 2011.) The barbecue may be put away for the season, but if you do one last grilling this year, reserve it for the candidate that knocks on your door. Now is the time to hold them accountable.

For an election that didn’t look like it would provide much for rural Saskatchewan, there have been a surprising amount of goodies. You may recall from previous visits to this space of your newspaper that it was anticipated rural Saskatchewan might be the red-haired child of this campaign. The Saskatchewan Party government, after all, had most of the rural seats sewed up. It had even already announced the replacement of the Saskatchewan Hospital at North Battleford before the campaign. And because the NDP was again conceding most of the rural seats to the Sask. Party, there didn’t seem to be much reason to think their campaign platform would place much emphasis on rural issues. (In addition, there is also the issue of the unlikelihood of the NDP forming government anyway, meaning that whatever they promise has significantly less relevance.) Finally, perhaps rural Saskatchewan had become maybe just a little spoiled after the 2007 election. It did, after all, elect the vast majority of government members that promised and delivered on things like lower education property taxes on farmland – an issue gnawing away at rural voters for years. The notion that rural Saskatchewan would do as well in 2011 seemed highly unlikely. Well, notwithstanding that this year’s vote isn’t quite like 2007, it turns out that the 2011 vote might be better than many expected. Consider what we are hearing from the politicians campaigning for your votes. Sask. Party leader Brad Wall recently announced this on the health care: $120,000 forgivable loans for new doctors, nurse practitioners and nurses willing to relocated to underserved rural areas for five years; 20 additional seats for nurse practitioner training; a 20-doctor rural locum pool to relieve rural physicians in need of a break; pilot projects for emergency services training in southwest, and; the launch of the STARS (Shock Trauma Air Rescue Society) medical helicopter program. All of these proposed programs – some of them, already started like the emergency services training and

MURRAY MANDRYK Provincial Politics

STARS – stand to directly benefit rural Saskatchewan. And not be outdone (or in the case of this election, out-promised) the NDP early in the campaign outlined it’s own aggressive agenda. Included in the NDP plan are a series of 100 primary care clinics to be opened within 10 years – 30 of which would be opened in the first term of an NDP government. Given the vast number and nature of these clinics as a couple-times-a-week drop in centres, one can safely assume a lot of them would be in rural Saskatchewan. Leader Dwain Lingenfelter also outlined his own aggressive $24-million plan to encourage graduating University of Saskatchewan medical students to stay in the province. And

significant upgrades to nurse practitioner training so that rural hospitals might remain open 24 hours a day, seven days a week is a significant part of the NDP’s health plan. Of course, this is just an example of the programs seem specifically beneficial to rural Saskatchewan. Rural folks would also benefit from other broader-based initiatives that the political parties are proposing. For example, if you are the rural parent with a university-age student, you have the choice between the Sask. Party program ($500 grants for all graduating high school-age kids to attend university) and the NDP plan (a tuition freeze for all current and future university students). The NDP are advocating 10,000 daycare spaces – some of which would wind up in rural communities. The Sask. Party’s biggest promise is significant help with residential and independent living disabled. (Again, including those in rural areas.) Surprisingly, it’s an election with a whole grab bag of goodies for rural Saskatchewan.

Do we understand what financial planning is? To understand the benefits of Financial Planning we must first understand what financial planning really is. Financial planning is an evolving plan that changes as you grow your family, your career and your lifestyle. It is not static but an integrated part of making smart decisions at all junctures in your life. As you move on through life, your plan needs to be reviewed as personal circumstances change. For example, getting married or buying a house and raising a family will definitely change certain priorities. It is not enough to pop into a local bank one Friday afternoon to get a plan and consider the process com-

An aimless portfolio is bound to disappoint. To avoid disappointment, you need direction and to give yourself direction you need a plan.

Boil Water Advisory in effect for parts of Corman Park Battleford Trail and Water Station at the RM of Corman Park shop on the Dalmeny grid affected A Boil Water Advisory for a portion of the rural area west of Saskatoon has been issued by the Saskatchewan Ministry of the Environment. The Boil Water Advisory took effect at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, October 21. It applies to all residents and businesses receiving water from the SaskWater NW Treated Water Pipeline. This includes Battleford Trail and the Water Station at the R.M. of Corman Park shop on the Dalmeny grid. According to SaskWater, repairs to the line were carried out beginning at 8:00 a.m. on October 21, and were expected to be completed by 5:00 p.m. the same day. However, because of depressurization of the lines, the Boil Water Advisory will remain in effect until the Ministry of Environment has tested the water over a period of days and determined it is safe for human consumption. The Ministry of Environment issued the precautionary Drinking Water Advisory based on Clause 32(1)a of the Environmental Management and Protection Act, 2002. The Environment Ministry stated that due to scheduled repairs which will result in water main depressurization for the affected area, contamination to the distribution system is a possibility. The

safety of the affected area’s drinking water supply cannot be ensured at all times, therefore, as a precautionary measure, consumers should: (a) Boil all water used for drinking purposes, for at least One (1) minute, at a rolling boil, prior to usage; (b) Boil water to be used for other activities where it may be ingested, including: (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) brushing teeth or soaking false teeth; washing fruits and vegetables; food or drink which will not be subsequently heated; and ice cubes; (c) Not drink from any public drinking fountains supplied with water from the public water supply; (d) Under most circumstances, not need to boil water used for other household purposes, such as laundry. Adults, adolescents and older children

may shower, bathe or wash using tap water but should avoid swallowing the water. Dishes may be disinfected by washing in dishwashing machines that have a dry cycle or a final rinse that exceeds 450C for 20 minutes, 500C for 5 minutes, or 720C for 1 minute. (e) Ensure that younger children and infants are sponge bathed; (f) Use an alternative water source known to be safe, if they do not wish to boil the water; and (g) Consult with your physician if you have cuts or rashes that are severe before using the water. Anyone requiring any additional information can contact: the SaskWater Office. at 1-800-667-5799; Donald Howe, Ministry of Environment at (306) 787-8253 or the Saskatoon Health Region at 306) 655-4605.

Young entrepreneurs bring big energy to small businesses F or a new generation of youthful entrepreneurs, small businesses are more than just a big part of the Canadian economy - they’re a way to achieve their dream of independence and prosperity. And regardless of the type of business they’re in, the key to success is good management and an emphasis on “customer service,” Two young entrepreneurs - one in Martensville and one in Dalmeny - are part of a new generation that is bringing a youthful vitality to the business community.

PIZZA IN MARTENSVILLE Derrick Kauk of Martensville, who celebrated his first year as owner of Vern’s Pizza in that city earlier this month, says he learned much more over the past year than he did during four

years of university earning his degree in accounting at the Edwards School of Business. “I did well at university but I knew I’d never be an accountant,” Kauk said in an interview. “I’m not real-

ly a numbers guy. I’m a people-oriented guy. But I also knew that the background would be beneficial, and I always wanted to own my own business.” The 26-year old Kauk said when the Vern’s Pizza franchise in Martensville came up for sale in the summer of 2010, he realized it was a successful business that had the potential to be even more successful. And while he knew he’d have a steep learning curve, he admits it was a little overwhelming at times. “When you step out in the real world, you learn a lot of practical hands-on stuff in a very short time,” he said. “University was an amazing experience and everybody who has an opportunity to enroll there should do it. But there’s no education that compares with owning your own business.” Since taking over the franchise, Kauk has seen his monthly sales figures increase dramatically. “They’ve inceased by a huge margin,” he said. “We still have slow days, but the slower days now are what a good day was like when I first started. It’s improving all the time.” Kauk said he has expanded his menu to offer customers increased choices. “We make pizza, obviously,” he said. But we also have great buffalo chicken wings, lasagna, poutine, ribs, and so on.” Kauk says he also places a big emphasis on high standards of cleanliness, customer service, and ensuring harmony within his growing staff. He notes that the staff members that were employed when he took over as owner are still there, and he says their experience and commitment to the business are very important. “We have ten staff members right now, and we’re so busy that I really need to hire some more,” he said. “They’re a diverse group of people and they make a great team. They’re profes-

I’m always amazed at the amount of business that our staff put through, especially during the busy times like Friday evenings. They get excited when it gets busy - they get their game faces on and work hard and the time just flies by.” Kauk said the most important aspect of his business is customer service. “That’s the fondation of our success,” he said. “It’s all about meeting the customer’s needs. You can have the best product, but you’re not going to last long if you don’t have good customer service.” Kauk said he chose Martensville because it was a centre that is growing and dynamic. “I live here, and I’m really glad to have made the move,” he said. “It’s a perfect fit.”

DALMENY HAIR SALON When 23-year old Winnie Sware moved to Saskatchewan from Camrose, Alberta in 2008 to enroll in a hairstylists course, she was hoping to find a job in her chosen field after graduation. She exceeded her own expectations. The youthful owner of Hair Options salon in Dameny says she’s still a little overwhelmed at times with demands of owning her own business, but she wouldn’t trade it for anything. After graduating from Marvel School in Saskatoon in December, 2009, Sware landed a job at the Hair Options salon, a well-established business in Dalmeny that was owned at the time by Diane Zimmerman. The salon was a wellestablished business in Dalmeny for many years. The owner was looking to

sell the business, but was still keen on staying on to continue working with her loyal clients. She ended up selling the salon to Sware, and continues to work at the shop where her advice and mentoring skills are proving especially helpful. “It’s been a steep learning curve,” said Sware. “But I’m glad I took the opportunity when it came along. I looked at the rewards and decided they definitely were well worth the risk.” Sware said she went from being the youngest employee

with the least experience to being the owner of the business. “In the course of two years I found myself with a new career in a new town and now owning a business,” she said. “I think it’s important to learn new things every day, because that’s the only way you grow. You have to be open to learning new things.” She said having Zimmerman at her side helped her decide to take the plunge into owning her own busiCONTINUED ON PAGE 22 “Young entrepreneurs”

he Dalmeny Curling Club raised some much needed operating funds while bridging the generation gap and promoting physical fitness among youth in the community. A “Walk for Fitness” walkathon was held in the gym at Dalmeny High School on Tuesday, October 18 and Wednesday, October 19. According to Dalmeny Curling Club executive member Pat Sullivan, the event was aimed at kick-starting the club’s fundraising efforts. “We’re hoping to raise $2,000 every year for the next three years to help offset our operating costs,” explained Sullivan in an interview. The Walk for Fitness was a two-day event that teamed a high school class with an elementary school class. Students walked around the gym for an hour during their physical education class, pausing at various locations to shoot baskets, try to get under a limbo bar, and participate in other games and activities. The students were encouraged to make donations as part of the exercise, noted Sullivan. “It’s not like a regular walkathon, with pledges and so on,” he said. “It’s simply asking for donations from families in the community. At the end of each of the walks, the students are provided with treats. It’s just a fun time.” The Town of Dalmeny and the Dalmeny Curling Club have a reciprocal arrangement with the schools to provide curling instruction to stu-

Hague Panthers upset Aberdeen Crusaders in see-saw playoff battle Hague Panthers went into the playoff game against Aberdeen last week as underdogs, and emerged with a 36-24 victory and a ticket to the second round of playoffs. By PAT PECKOVER peckpatr@uregina.ca

I

t was a clash of two defences, each willing to get down in the dirt to make the tackle. The Aberdeen Crusaders hosted the Hague Panthers in the 2 versus 3 league playoff game in the Conference 4 2A six-man football league on October 20. The Crusaders had won both of their previous meetings, but weren’t taking anything for granted as both games had been close. Hague got on the scoreboard quickly, only seconds into the first quarter after a long pass took them to Aberdeen’s 10-yard line. Two plays later they punched the ball across to take a 6-0 lead. The teams then traded possession and field position, each threatening to score, but Aberdeen finally hit the end zone with just over two min-

utes left in the quarter to tie the game at six. An interception by Mac Medernach set up the touchdown. The Panthers scored quickly in the second quarter as well, with Travis Fehr carrying the ball across the line on a 10-yard run. The point after was good and Hague had a 14-6 lead. The Crusaders didn’t give up and after several pass and run plays, they scored a touchdown, making it a 14-12 game. Aberdeen had a chance to take the lead with just under three minutes left in the second quarter, after quarterback Dylan Fehr recovered a bad snap and ran the ball in for a touchdown, but it was called back on a penalty. The Crusaders didn’t give up possession though and with just under a minute left, the home team did take an 18-14 lead on a running play. The quarter ended with Aberdeen up 18-14. The third quarter saw Aberdeen increase their lead thanks to a long run by quarterback Fehr. With a 24-14 lead, the Crusaders tried a short kick, but the Panthers controlled the ball. After turning the ball over on downs, Hague forced Aberdeen to punt from deep within their own end zone on third down.

The Panthers took over the ball near Aberdeen’s 10-yard line, but couldn’t get into the end zone before the quarter ended. The fourth quarter of the game continued to be a defensive battle, but one which the Crusaders gradually lost as they couldn’t move the ball out of their half. Aberdeen took over the ball at their own 10, but Hague scored two points when they tackled the ball carrier in the end zone, making it a 24-16 game. Bad snaps by the Crusaders and a strong defence by the Panthers saw Aberdeen start deeper and deeper in their own end in the second quarter. Hague scored another touchdown on a long pass and run play from near half to make it a 24-22 game, and the two-point convert was good to tie the game at 24. With just 3:55 left in the game, Hague scored another touchdown to make it a 30-24 game, but the scoring wasn’t over. With just 11.3 seconds on the clock, Hague got the ball into the end zone to make it a 36-24 game and put an end to the Crusaders’ hope of a comeback. The victory sends the Panthers on to the provincial quarterfinal round of playoffs, something of a miracle as Hague finished third in the league. Hague coach Tom Mufford called it “an incredible game.” “We made some big changes on defence after our last game and we were in there every time,” he said. The Panthers name a player of the game after every game, but he wasn’t sure how to narrow the field down this time, Mufford noted. “Everyone was a star,” he stated. However, Mufford did come up with Jared Loewen, a big offensive lineman and occasional running back during the game, and quarterback Luke Guenter as two standout players. This is Mufford’s first year coaching the team. He started the season as an assistant coach, but moved up to the head coach position with the encouragement of the other coaches. His brother Steve was also on the coaching staff this year, but wasn’t at this game as he’s now in Africa for seven months. Both Muffords were players on the Hague football team during their time in high school —

A member of the Hague Panthers gets down and dirty as he drags down Aberdeen s Lewis Wutzke (26) as he racks up some running yards during the first quarter of their game on October 20. The Aberdeen Crusaders were hosting the Panthers in the 2 versus 3 playoff game for Conference 4 of 2A six-man football. Hague went on to win the game 36-24 and will play Hudson Bay this Saturday in the quarter-final game.

Tom graduated in 2001 while Steve graduated in 2006. Trevor Ethier, the Aberdeen head coach, was disappointed in how the game turned out.

“We expected it to be close but they made some plays and we didn’t,” he said. “We didn’t capitalize a couple of times and it made a difference.” The game was a defensive

battle where every yard was a tough gain and the defence made big plays on both sides of the ball, Ethier said.“It’s a tough loss and a tough way to end the season”

Female kicker contributes to Crusaders team By PAT PECKOVER peckpatr@uregina.ca

E

veryone notices the kicker on the football team, whether they do both place kicking and the punting or not. Every kicker has their own style, strengths and weaknesses. But it takes a sharp eye to pick out the big difference between the kicker on the Aberdeen Crusaders sixman football team and the rest of her teammates. That’s right, the kicker for Aberdeen is female. Tamara White, a Grade 11 student, has been with the team for a couple of years and she has impressed her coaches, teammates and opponents with her dedication, skill, and determination. White grew up watching the Saskatchewan Roughriders play and her dad played football as well. “I’ve always been interested and I showed them

Aberdeen kicker Tamara White kicks off during a game what I could do,” White said. She started playing in Grade 9 and has even attended a kicking camp put on by Rider kicker Luca Congi. White likes the demands football puts on her. “(Kicking) is like just me and the ball on the field,” she explained. But she also likes other aspects of the game. “It’s a way to get your

anger out,” she laughed as she talked about the hitting that is part of the game. Her parents and her friends all support her decision to play football, not typically considered a girls’ game. “My friends think it’s cool,” she said. “My parents are proud of me.” White doesn’t have any trouble fitting in. “She’s been a huge part of the team,” said Aberdeen coach Trevor Ethier. “She doesn’t back down from anything.” “They’re a great bunch of guys,” White says of her fellow Crusaders. “The guys respect me and let me know when I do good,” she added. White plans to keep playing football until graduation and then see what happens. She has not given up on the idea of playing the game at a higher level.

11:00am - 4:00pm

Arsenic and Old Lace, a clever combination of the farcical and the macabre, centers on two elderly sisters who are famous in their Brooklyn neighborhood for their numerous acts of charity. Unfortunately, however, their charity includes poisoning lonely old men who come to their home looking for lodging. The two women are assisted in their crimes by their mentally challenged nephew who believes he is Teddy Roosevelt and who frequently blasts a bugle and yells ‘‘charge’’ as he bounds up the stairs. Matters get complicated when a second nephew, a theater critic, discovers the murders and a third nephew appears after having just escaped from a mental institution. In his adroit mixture of comedy and mayhem, the playwright, Joseph Kesselring satirizes the charitable impulse as he pokes fun at the conventions of the theater.

Delisle Rebels shut out Unity Warriors By TERRY PUGH tpugh@ccgazette.ca

T

he Delisle Rebels built up a huge 50-point first-half lead and hung on to shut out the visiting Unity Warriors 51-0 in the first round of playoffs last Saturday. But despite the lopsided score, Delisle head coach Ken Byers said the Warriors played a strong game, particularly during the second half. “They came out with some stuff that we had seen during the regular season,

so we were prepared for it,” he said. “But they didn’t quit.” Byers said the Rebels are glad to be moving on to the next round. “We’re happy just to get the win and walk away without any injuries,” he stated after the game. “It was a very quick game because the officials kept the clock running during the second half, so that obviously played a role too.” Byers gave credit to the Delisle players for being prepared, largely on their own.

“It was a little different because my defensive coordinator was at a funeral today, and another experienced coach wasn’t ere today either,” he said. “I wasn’t able to be here until 45 minutes before game time. But the kids did well to get themselves reedy.” Delisle led 29-0 after the first quarter and 50-0 at the half. Their only point in the second half came off a punt single by Des Vessey. Vessey also racked up 3 touchdowns, while Logan Frohaug added three majors

17 and Braydon Knackstedt accoutned for one touchdown and kicked six successful conversions. The bigger test for Delisle comes next weekend when they play host to Indian Head in the next round of nine man high school football playoffs. “We know that whoever we play finished second to Lumsden,” he stated. “And we beat Lumsden in an exhibition game earlier this season. So we have some game film and we’ve already started to plan for next Saturday. The Rebels next game is the provincial quarter final on Saturday, October 29 at 2:00 p.m. in Delisle.

Funding boosted for storm water rebate program By TERRY PUGH tpugh@ccgazette.ca

T

he City of Martensville has increased the amount of money budgeted for its 2011 Storm Water Rebate Program. The move is aimed at ensuring that all applications for rebates from homeowners received to date are covered. But council has yet to decide whether to extend the program into 2012. At its October 18 regular meeting, Martensville City Council adopted a resolution to increase the budget for the program from $50,000 to $67,000. The increase is designed to accommodate all the expected applications from homeowners this calendar year. Most of those applications have already come in and have been approved. Council is monitoring the number of applications still being received under the program. Any homeowners still intending to apply under the program are encouraged to submit applications as soon as possible. According to a news release issued by the City of Martensville, the program may not be offered in 2012 if there is not enough demand. “In order to determine if there is a need to continue the program in the 2012 budget year, we are asking indivduals that are plannig to participate in the program to contact the Director of Public Works, Mike Grosh, at 931-2308 or by e-mail at publicworks@martensville. ca . The news release indicated the program, which was adopted last April, was successful. The city administration extended thanks to homeowners who successfully competed the upgrades to their homes and

applied for rebates. The program provides rebates to homeowners who install backwater valves, sump pumps and proper water discharge systems. The program is aimed at preventing future sewer backups by easing presure on the overall sewer system. Rebates include $150 toward installation of a backwater valve on the main plumbing line, $225 toward installation of sump pumps that are properly discharged, and $750 toward disconnecting weeping tile from the sewer system. Qualifying homeowners who undertake all these actions are eligible for a total rebate of $1500.

MANY UPGRADES The City of Martensville undertook several major projects this past year to upgrade the municipal sewer and water system. Better drainage infrastructure was installed along Centennial Drive in conjunction with the widening of the thoroughfare to accomodate increased traffic. In addition, several “super pipes” were installed at strategic locations within the city to prevent large surges of storm water from backing up into the sewer system. WEBSITE REDESIGN The Martensville civic website is being redesigned to improve its effectiveness and accessiblity, according to Bonnie Gorelitza, Martensville Director of Planning and Regulations. BYLAW ENFORCEMENT With the city’s bylaw enforcement and animal control officer currently on medical leave for an indefinite period of time, Martensville council agreed through consensus to contract the services of a pri-

RAILERS

384-4888

vate bylaw enforcement company based in Dalmeny on a temporary basis. The contract will be monitored for cost-effectiveness and will be reviewed after two months.

MUNICIPAL RESERVE A bylaw was passed at the October 18 council meeting authorizing the closure of a portion of a municipal road allowance on the westerly portion of 9th Avenue South. The bylaw, 17-2011, was first advertised last May. The portion of the road allowance referred to in the bylaw was never constructed. The bylaw allows the road allowance to be consolidated with MR20, a city-owned municipal reserve located at the intersection of 4th Street South and 9th Avenue South. A public hearing on the closure of the portion of the road allowance was held May 17 at the council chambers. A delegation of residents in the neighbourhood expressed their desire to have the parcel of land retained as a municipal green space. Passage of the bylaw does not preclude that option, but it does not guarantee it either. What it does is create a lot that may be sold if a proposal submitted by a developer meets acceptable standards, according to council. Any money received from a sale would be placed in the city’s dedicated lands account. Councilor Kent Muench said the public will be notified of any future proposals. “We’re turning this property into a lot, and if the proposals are agreeable to council, then that is where we will go,” he said. “If we don’t get any propoals that are acceptable, then it could remain a green space.”

ness. “She’s been in the business for 37 years, so she knows it inside out. Having Diane’s support is really important.” She noted that one of the key lessons she’s learned from Zimmerman is the importance of customer service. “You have to make sure your clientele is happy,” she said. “Over the past two years, I think we’ve all worked very hard to cultivate that customer loyalty.” The staff of the salon has now grown to three with the addition of nail technician Dallas Ferster of Dalmeny. The salon’s clients come from a wide area, including Borden, where Sware makes her home. Sware says the business community in Dalmeny is very welcoming. “It’s a good fit for me,” she said. “I feel a real sense of belonging in this community.” Sware encourages other young people to become business owners. “If you have an opportunity to better your career and create an environment for yourself that’s going to make your long term goals more achievable, then definitely I would say go for it,” she said. “It’s a lot of responsibility and a lot of work, but it’s well worth it.”

Health care number one issue in Humboldt riding By PAT PECKOVER peckpatr@uregina.ca

W

ith the official election campaign at its halfway point, candidates are starting to get a better picture of the concerns of the constituency’s residents. The Humboldt constituency is a mix of urban and rural. It sprawls east from just outside of Saskatoon to west of Muenster, containing a mix of commuter acreages, small towns with a growing population, one city — Humboldt, and a very traditional rural population. The riding includes the communities of Aberdeen, Vonda, Prud’Homme, St. Denis, Sunset Estates, Clavet, Bradwell, Allan, Colonsay, Bruno, Meacham, Burr, Viscount, Plunkett, Lanigan, Muenster, and Humboldt. It is also home to a large number of industrial businesses that are part of the “Iron Triangle,” and a number of potash mines. All of these factors combine to make this riding a mix of concerns, home to a very diverse population. There are three candidates running in this riding: Donna Harpauer of the Sas-

Weekly Horoscopes CAPRICORN A business transaction will go smoothly as long as you take the time to collect the right paperwork. Listlessness takes hold at home. Break it up with an outing, Capricorn.

LIBRA Get ready to scoop up the deal of a lifetime, Libra, as a friend makes you an incredible offer. More surprises are in store for the weekend.

AQUARIUS Inventiveness counts, Aquarius. There is a better way of doing things. It s up to you to find it, and it s not what you might expect. Good luck.

SCORPIO The search begins for an item for your home in someplace you least expect. A health crisis passes, thanks to diet and fitness changes. Keep up the good work, Scorpio.

PISCES Every time you try to finish a repair, something gets in your way. Don t worry about it, Pisces. Life is going to settle down soon enough.

SAGITTARIUS You re finally rewarded for all of your hard work, and it s okay to smile about it. You did a good job. A kitchen mishap ends in laughter. Who knew, Sagittarius?

ARIES Suspicions mount at work. Keep yours to yourself, Aries. This is one battle you do not want to be a part of. Vacation plans stall for a reason. TAURUS A proposal receives mixed reviews. Look at it from every angle before you form an opinion, Taurus. A mission in organization can no longer wait.

er said it has only been brought to her attention once while door-knocking. While the Sask Party hasn’t taken a stand on the issue, they will be watching the matter closely to ensure that farmers have the support they need. Harpauer herself is worried about voter complacency. “I would really encourage voters to get out and vote, no matter how you vote,” she stated.

ECOLOGICAL ISSUES Lynn Oliphant, the Green Party candidate says this election is about the ecological health of the planet and social and economic justice. Oliphant is concerned about a number of issues in this election including the revitalization of rural Saskatchewan, the increased costs of agricultural inputs, the lack of intelligent design for acreage developments, the closing of rural schools, and rising health care costs and university tuition. He also opposes the development of nuclear energy or the storage of nuclear waste in the province and the development of the tar sands in northern Saskatchewan, fearing their impact on the environment. Oliphant has run for the Green Party before, in both federal and provincial elections, but isn’t doing any door-to-door campaigning this time around. “I don’t like it when people come to my door and try to convert me to their religion or politics, so I don’t do it to others,” he explained. “But if anyone wants to discuss the issues, they can contact me.” Oliphant can be reached at gps2011@ saskgreen.ca, Att’n: Lynn Oliphant or at 3741068.

THIS WEEK’S ANSWERS

HEALTH CARE KEY According to Harpauer, this election is about moving Saskatchewan forward and staying a have province. To accomplish that, the Sask Party is running on their record as responsible stewards of the province’s finances. “We have experienced population growth, there are more people working, and we’ve lowered taxes,” she said. “We have a sustainable, affordable platform and we are not entering a bidding war with the other parties.” The NDP’s platform is anything but sustainable, according to Harpauer. “I’ve never seen a platform as devastatingly expensive as the NDP has issued,” she said. “Right now, it will cost $2.7 billion by their own admission and that doesn’t include any resource revenue-sharing which they are considering. That could be $400 million more.” According to Harpauer, the people in the riding are very, very optimistic, especially with a good crop year and the expansion of the potash mines in the area and the possible construction of another mine at Jansen. But that’s not to say that the residents don’t have concerns. “The number one issue in Lanigan and Humboldt is doctor shortages,” she stated. The Saskatchewan Party is addressing the issue by increasing the number of training seats and the number of residencies, as well as recruiting more aggressively from abroad. They are also considering incentives to encourage doctors to choose rural areas, she explained. As for the issue of the federal government taking away single desk marketing through the Canadian Wheat Board (CWB), Harpau-

ELECTION

People are also concerned about the state of highways and roads in the riding, especially Hwy. 2 and 27, he said. Some people have even told him they refuse to take certain roads because they are in such bad shape. We have to recognize that rural Saskatchewan is a vital part of the economy and they are being left behind, Bedient stated. Affordable housing and childcare are also issues being raised at the door, he added. These are things that are on the minds of younger families as they try to get ahead and raise their children, Bedient noted. As for the federal government s decision to remove the CWB as the sole marketer of western Canadian wheat, Be-

meetings ̶ one in Vonda at 7:30 p.m. on October 26 and one in Humboldt at 7 p.m. on October 27. Oliphant grew up in the U.S., but moved to Saskatchewan to teach at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan. He currently lives on an acreage between Saskatoon and Aberdeen in a straw bale house. FAIR SHARE Gord Bedient, a resident of Saskatoon, is the NDP candidate for the riding. He says this election is about getting all the residents of Saskatchewan a fair share of the prosperity the province is currently experiencing. Some people are benefiting from the boom, but a large percentage is being left behind, he explained. The cost of living has increased during the boom, but people s disposable income has gone down in the last three years.

23

Residents of the riding are concerned about healthcare, but those concerns differ from east to west, he noted. On the east side of the riding, around Humboldt and Muenster, people are concerned about the shortage of doctors and health care professionals, Bedient explained. Close to Saskatoon, they are more concerned about wait times for appointments with specialists and procedures. The NDP has talked to young doctors and is working on plans to help them buy into practices in rural areas, which many can t do as they graduate from the College of Medicine with high student debt loads and are unwilling to go even deeper into debt. As well, the NDP is promoting community access hospitals as the way to go as it helps to lessen doctors workloads. The younger doctors have told us they don t want to work 24/7, Bedient said.

dient is very disappointed. The majority of farmers said they want the wheat board, he stated. This is all about democracy. You have a federal government supporting antidemocratic practices. Bedient s biggest concern about the election is the similarities to what happened in the 1980s under the Grant Devine Progressive Conservative government. There are too many similarities, he said. The economy is going good and then all of a sudden the economy crashes and we re in trouble. This is Bedient s second time as a candidate for the NDP; he ran for the party in the Silversprings riding in 2007. Election day is Monday, November 7.

FUNDRAISING Continued from Page 11

Meanwhile, the fundraising effort will help pay the incidental costs of operating the rink. Sullivan noted that it takes a fair cash outlay at the beginning of the year to get the club up and running for the season while waiting for the membership dues to come in. “We want to ensure that the club stays in a healthy financial position, and is able to keep going,” he said. “This rink is a real treasure, and we can’t afford to take it for granted. If we were to try and build a new rink today, it would cost at least a million dollars.” He said while the fundraising goal sounds like a lot of money, it needs to be put in perspective. “A couple thousand dollars a year is nothing compared to what it would cost to build a rink,” he concluded.

Clavet Cougars upset Humboldt Mohawks, advance to second round of playoffs By PAT PECKOVER peckpatr@uregina.ca

T

hey’re in their first year of nine-man football, but the Clavet Cougars are making a name for themselves. The Cougars were in Humboldt on October 22 playing the Humboldt Collegiate Institute (HCI) Mohawks in the 2 versus 3 league playoff game and hoping for a chance to advance to the provincial quarter final playoff round. The Mohawks had won both games when the teams had met before in the regular season, but each game had been close with HCI having to fight for every point. This game would seem to be on the same track at the beginning, but the crowd was in for a surprise. The game started with Humboldt threatening to score on their first possession, but it wasn’t until the second time they had the ball that they got into the end zone. A long, scrambling run on a punt return put the Mohawks on their opponent’s 10-yard line and then it was only a couple of plays later that a pass gave HCI their first points. Humboldt’s 7-0 lead didn’t last long though as Clavet quarterback Evan Fiala teamed up with Thomas Blahun for a short dump pass and a long run which ended in the Cougars first touchdown of the game. A two-point convert attempt was successful, giving Clavet an 8-7 lead. The Cougars scored another touchdown and convert combo before the first quarter ended, giving them a 16-7 lead after 12 minutes of play.

The second quarter started as a defensive battle, with the two teams trading possession without scoring any points. But Clavet took over the ball deep in Humboldt’s end after a failed third down attempt to gain a yard. A few downs later, another pass and run play gave the Cougars a 22-7 lead, which increased to 24-7 after another successful convert. HCI did score a touchdown on the ensuing kickoff, but it was called back on an illegal blocking penalty. The Clavet defence kept the Mohawks out of the end zone for the rest of the half, keeping the score at 24-7. Clavet started the third quarter with a short kick which Cougar Drew Fitzgerald picked out of the air to give his team the ball on Humboldt’s side of centre. The Cougars put the possession to good use, scoring their first touchdown of the quarter only a few plays later, taking a 30-7 lead. HCI fought back though, putting together a drive from their own 17-yard line which stopped in the Cougars end zone. With the score 30-15, the momentum seemed to be shifting, but an interception on HCI’s next possession killed another drive. Neither team added any more points to their totals before the quarter ended, leaving Clavet with a 30-15 lead. The fourth quarter turned into more of an offensive battle, with the team’s trading touchdowns. Clavet increased the score to 36-15 with a touchdown shortly after the quarter started, but it didn’t take long for the Mohawks to

While Priel was pleased with the play of his entire team, he did pick out Thomas Blahun, Ryan Dickson, and Joel Beresh as players who made a difference. They were also the only three players on the Cougar team who played both ways, he noted. Clavet will now travel to Foam Lake to play the Panthers in a provincial quarter-final game on October 29.

Blahun and Fiala teamed up on the same dump and run play to get the Cougars’ second touchdown of the quarter, making it a 42-23 game. Penalties kept the next Mohawk drive alive, with the touchdown closing the gap to 42-29. That would be as close as Humboldt got though as another Cougar touchdown and convert made it a 50-29 game, which was the final score. “We had timely plays by our offensive and defensive guys,” said Clavet coach Shaun Priel after the game. “They put us in good position to score points.” The team kept growing throughout the year, with the players getting better every week, he noted. While the wind, which was gusting to 50 km/h during the game, certainly affected the spectators, Priel said it didn’t really affect

the Cougars’ game plan. “We do what we do regardless of the weather,” Priel ex-

plained. “We played our last two games in the rain and we just kept passing.”

In the other playoff game in the conference, the Warman Wolverines gave it their best shot, but lost to the Melfort Comets by a score of 49-28. The loss put an end to the Wolverines’ season and their hopes for a miracle comeback in the playoffs.
