Spreading the cheer

A collection of about a dozen carolers were joined by Santa Claus as they made their way around Warman on Saturday evening. The group resurrected their annual tour, traveling throughout town singing Christmas carols to random home owners as well as business customers and staff, including those at Tim Hortons (pictured above).

Investigation costs properly documented, says former police commission chair Hobday downplays allegations by former officer Claudia Bryden By TERRY PUGH


llegations of a cover-up in the case of Claudia Bryden, a former constable with the RM of Corman Park Police Service, are being challenged by the former chair of the RM’s police commission. In an interview on Thursday, December 15, Ed Hobday said the amount of money spent by the RM between 2006 and 2010 on an investigation into allegations by Bryden against former Corman Park Police Chief Wayne McGillivray is a matter of public record. Bryden, who was dismissed from the RM Police Service in 2010, appeared before the RM council meeting on Monday, December 12. During her presentation, she estimated the RM had spent approximately $1 million on the investigation. She also said the figures have never been made public, and

approved by council at public meetings, “with each and every invoice” accounted for. He said the figures are readily available to any councilor. While conceding the total was a significant amount of money spent over five years, Hobday said it needs to be taken in context. “The commission was abundantly fair and thorough in terms of responding to each and every complaint,” he said.

BRYDEN’S ALLEGATIONS Bryden was hired by the RM of Corman Park Police Service in 2001. She had earlier been employed with the municipal police service in Martensville before it was dissolved in 1993 as part of the fallout from a seriously-flawed but widely-publicized police investigation into alleged child sexual abuse. Bryden filed the first of several complaints against McGillivray in 2006. The initial complaint related to a murder in Langham in 2002, when the Corman Park Police and the RCMP were investigating the death of 20 year old Jackie Watt, who was trying to protect her friend and son from the boy’s father.

Pucks ready to fly at Legends Centre $23-million dollar facility s name officially changed at centre ice ceremony By TERRY PUGH


he Legends Center in Warman is now open for business. The shiny new 1,300-seat hockey arena was officially christened the “Legends Centre” by Warman Mayor Sheryl Spence in a ceremony at centre ice on Thursday evening, December 15. Wearing skates for the occasion, the Mayor and fellow town councilors, Gary Philipchuk and Kendall Shram, declared the facility officially open on a partial basis. While construction on many parts of the multi-purpose structure will be ongoing over at least the next two years, the hockey arena portion in the north half of the 100,000 square foot building is up and running. About 900 seats have been installed, the centre ice score clock and sound system are in place, and the east-side dressing

room facilities are fully functional. The building, formerly known as the Warman Sport and Cultural Village (WSCV), will eventually include an indoor soccer field, and will be physically connected to the new Warman Middle Years School, scheduled to open in the fall of 2013.

FIRST STEP OF MANY TO COME “This is a very special night,” said Warman Mayor Sheryl Spence, addressing members of town council and staff, as well as volunteers with the WSCV committee who helped make the $23 million building a reality. “I want to thank the many people who have worked very hard to get us where we are today,” she said. “Thank you for all you have done. We appreciate all the hard work and effort that went into this part of the building.” Spence said the town council decided to open the rink portion of the project to provide minor hockey teams with additional ice times for practice. “However, we must keep in mind that we have a long way to

go before The Legends Centre will be one-hundred percent complete,” she said. “Currently the rink will only be open for practice time and we ask parents to be watching out for their children because The Legends Centre still has ongoing construction taking place.” She said the facility will hold an official “grand opening” next fall. She said a “Recognition Wall” will be incorporated into the building which highlights the contributions of the many supporters of the project over the years. While noting there is still a long way to go before the facility is completely finished, she said the opening of the arena marks a major milestone. She said in recognition of a major financial donation made by Dave Holst, owner of Warman Homes and Warman Home Center, the facility is being officially named “The Legends Centre”. The new facility is located adjacent to The Legends neighbourhood as well as The Legends Golf Club in the north end of Warman. “Although these sponsors did Continued on Page 16 Please see LEGENDS CENTRE

Martensville firefighters’ Christmas hampers help less fortunate in community By TERRY PUGH


or the past sixteen years, firefighters in Martensville have been quietly working behind the scenes, helping spread Christmas cheer to less-fortunate families in the community. In what has become an annual tradition, the Martensville fire hall becomes a hive of activity a few days before Christmas, as volunteers fill hampers with turkeys, canned goods, and other nonperishable food items. The hampers are then distributed, quietly and confidentially, to financially-strapped households. It’s a project that carries its own special rewards, according to Larry Sigfusson, a member of the Martensville Fire Department and a key organizer of the food hamper program. “I joined the fire department 18 years ago, and the program has been going for the last 16 years,” said Sigfusson in an interview last week. “We identified a need in the community at that time. We knew there were families in the area that were in need of a little extra help around Christmas time, so we organized a food drive through the schools. It was well-received, and we decided to make it an annual campaign.” The firefighters association receives help from the Martensville Lions Club, which makes an annual donation, as well as the community’s Cubs and Scouts, who help pack sort and pack the hampers at the fire hall a few days prior to Christmas. A local manufacturing company, Redekop Manufacturing donates turkeys for the hampers. Donations of food are collected through the community’s high school and two elementary schools, noted Sigfusson. “We also accept donations at Martensville City Hall,” he added. Sigfusson said in addition to a Christmas turkey or ham, the hampers contain about two weeks’ worth of food.

HELPING NEIGHBOURS Kurtis Dyck, Deputy Chief of the Martensville Fire Department and a Martensville City Councilor, said the program is rewarding for the volunteers who take part because it illustrates the “true spirit” of Christmas. “It’s about neighbours helping neighbours,” Dyck said. “Even though we’ve grown to city status, Martensville is still a small town in many ways. This is one way of showing how people care about their neighbours.” Dyck said the most rewarding aspect for the volunteers is knowing they’re helping to make a difference in people’s lives at a special time of year. “Lots of people are so thankful, they break down when you show up at their door with the hamper,” he said. “They can’t thank us enough for doing it. That’s really the spirit of Christmas –

number we’ve had was about 20 families.” Dyck said there have been instances where people who have received hampers one year have declined the offer in later years because they’ve been able to improve their financial and personal circumstances. “That’s also very rewarding, to know that they’re doing better,” said Dyck. Sigfusson said the firefighters’ association Christmas food hamper program is a strictly seasonal endeavor designed to supplement the ongoing charitable efforts of local churches and other community groups. “There are other organizations and resources out there and we hope the people have access to those organizations throughout the rest of the year,” he said. “Our primary goal is strictly at Christmas time.” Sigfusson said the families on the firefighters’ list are the ones that would otherwise fall through the cracks. “There are definitely some families that have been on my list for several years,” he explained. “They really appreciate the thoughtfulness at Christmas time and it’s a really good feeling of the mem-

it’s about giving.” The list of households receiving hampers is confidential, said Sigfusson. “It’s completely non-judgmental,” he explained. “We don’t judge circumstances, and we don’t vet the names. Families require help sometimes for lots of different reasons. It could be because someone has lost their job or someone has gotten sick and the primary breadwinner has to be at home taking care of that person. We don’t know the personal circumstances of the families and we don’t judge.” He said the names on the list come from a variety of sources, including local churches and City Hall.

NUMBERS VARY Over the years, the number of households on the list has varied, a reflection of changing economic circumstances. “It’s a little bigger job now than a few years ago,” Sigfusson said. “You can definitely tell when times are tough. We tend to get instances, like a couple years ago when the recession hit, we had a few more families that received the hampers. Typically we’ll support anywhere from 8 to 10 families. I think the highest

bers going out and delivering this stuff to get that thanks up front. It’s one of the highlights of our year.”

COMMUNITY EFFORT The firefighters association, with the help of the Cubs and Scouts in Martensville, sort the food and pack the hampers on the Wednesday evening prior to Christmas, and deliver the hampers later that evening around town. “It’s a good community effort,” said Sigfusson. “We have the young people involved so they see that there are families out there that have a need, and they get involved with the Christmas hamper program at an early age. We pack the hampers and then we go out in a couple of vehicles and start delivering. I pre-phone everyone so I know they’re going to be home, so the stuff isn’t left on the steps.” Sigfusson said the hampers will also occasionally contain some gifts for children in the family, but the primary focus is food. “It’s very rewarding to be able to ease the burden for people at Christmas time, and bring a little bit of a smile to their faces,” he concluded.

College experience pays off for Vanscoy student Strong academic marks keep paying off for Siera Sparrow of Vanscoy. Two years ago, as a first year university transfer student at Lakeland College, she received a $1,500 Academic Excellence Scholarship because she had a Grade 11 average above 85 per cent. Now working towards a degree in psychology at the University of Saskatchewan, Sparrow received a $2,500 transfer scholarship for having the

Government to review math instruction, curriculum The success and achievement of all Saskatchewan students is a priority for the Government of Saskatchewan. As such, in an effort to address concerns coming from parents and a petition from the Western Initiative for Strengthening Education in Math, the government will be facilitating a consultation and engagement process with frontline educators across Saskatchewan. “The best feedback we can get is to start with our frontline teachers - the ones that are actually teaching the curriculum, working with children and working with parents - that’s going to give us some really good dialogue,” Education Minister Donna Harpauer said. To conduct this dialogue, Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) Russ Marchuk and Gene Makowsky who both have education experience in past roles as classroom teachers, will be hosting six unique sessions with teachers across the province in late January to early February. Minister Harpauer has initiated this consultation process by contacting education partners in school divisions, who have been invited to participate in discussions around the effective instruction of math curriculum.

highest marks of all Lakeland College students who transferred to the university in the fall. “I was originally told I would receive a $1,500 transfer scholarship but the university increased it to $2,500 when they determined I had the highest average among Lakeland student transferring to the U of S,” she says. “I wasn’t expecting it but it has really helped my financial situation.” She chose to start her university education at Lakeland because she heard it was a great college with a strong university transfer program. While at Lakeland, Sparrow played soccer and fut-

sal (indoor soccer) for the Rustlers. Despite the many practices and games, Sparrow managed to maintain a high academic average which earned her a spot on the Dean’s Honour Roll last year. Because of her strong marks, she was also named a Canadian Collegiate Athletics Association Scholar. “I’m glad I chose Lakeland. The instructors at Lakeland are very good. They get to know you on a personal level and they really care. My two years at the Lloydminster campus prepared me for the move to university. I’d definitely recommend Lakeland to anyone,” she says.

A good year for rural Sask. politics


Your re-elected Saskatchewan Party government went back to work very quickly with a short but important fall session of the legislature. Over the last two weeks, our government laid out the steps we will take over the next four years to continue to move Saskatchewan forward. We re-affirmed our commitments to responsibly manage the province’s historic growth, improve the quality of life for all Saskatchewan people, make life more affordable and to be accountable to you: the electorate. Your government moved quickly to keep several promises we made during the recent election campaign through the introduction of several pieces of important legislation. Simply put, we did what we said we would do. We followed through on our promise to provide more support for people with diabetes, by moving two long-acting insulins from Exception Drug Status onto the provincial drug formulary and to expand the Children’s Insulin Pump Program to cover residents up to the age of 25. With the large increase in economic activity in Saskatchewan in recent years, we introduced a motion regarding the creation of a lobbyist registry. With historic growth come new challenges, including paid government lobbyists playing a greater role in our province. We also promised during the campaign to continue to improve the quality of life for Saskatchewan people with disabilities through further enhancements to the Saskatchewan Assured Income for Disability (SAID) program. Starting in January, more than 3,000 SAID recipients who live in residential care settings will receive a $50 per month increase to their benefits. Over the next four years benefits for those living independently will increase by $350 per month. We kept our word on an important promise we made that will help firsttime home buyers and families. Effective January 1st, the First-Time Homebuyers Tax Credit comes into effect. It will provide a $1,100 non-refundable tax credit by applying a provincial tax credit of 11 per cent to the first $10,000 of an eligible home purchase. Also becoming effective in the New Year is an expansion of the Active Families Benefit. It has been expanded to include all children under the age of 18. The Active Families Benefit provides an income tax benefit of up to $150 per child to help with the costs of cultural, recreational and sports activities. And, finally, we introduced legislation that keeps the Premier’s commitment for the 2012-13 school year to begin after the Labour Day long weekend. Amendments to The Education Act, 1995, mean the earliest students will begin the school year is the first day following Labour Day and the school year will end by June 30. Over the coming weeks, the world slows down providing us with an opportunity to reflect and give thanks. While I am always thankful for the love and support of friends and family, I would be remiss if I did not also thank you for your support. On November 7, 2011, you made history by giving the Saskatchewan Party a strong mandate to lead our province into the future. Over the next four years, I will do everything in my power to honour that trust, each and every day. Thank you and Merry Christmas!

Reader Opinions Democracy needs an informed electorate The word “democracy” has often been used in events leading up to Municipal Affairs Minister Darryl Hickie’s announcement last week regarding the realignment and reduction of electoral divisions in Corman Park. In trying to come to some greater degree of understanding of the word “democracy,” I came across the writings of Jom K. Bramann. He writes: “If the majority of the people are too uninformed, lackadaisical or apathetic to make the democratic process rational and effective, then they just reveal their inherent nature. It is the people’s own disposition that makes them disregard enlightenment and thus dependent on some sort of rulers. If people did not naturally have the disposition they display in a dysfunctional democracy, other people would not be able to exploit and mislead them the way they do. (Governments) do not create popular ignorance and apathy, they only use it for their own purposes - in the same


way a seller of dubious merchandise does not create lack of buyer discretion, but only exploits that deficiency. “If a democracy is dysfunctional, then this is only a natural state of affairs, a logical outgrowth of the natural constitution of most human beings. The majority of the people are simply not made to be interested students and disciplined citizens. Most people just desire amusement and the freedom to do what they like.” Plato describes the prevalent disposition of “democratic man” in his book, “The Republic.” “He lives from day to day indulging the appetite of the hour, and sometimes he is lapped to drink and strains of the flute; then he becomes a water-drinker, and tries to get thin; then he takes a turn at gymnastics; sometimes idling and neglecting everything, then once more living the life of a philosopher; often he is busy with politics, and starts to his feet and says and does

With the creeks on the rise, one might think it wasn’t such a good year for rural Saskatchewan. Well, it was at least a pretty good year when it came to getting what they wanted out of their governments. Let us quickly review 2011. One of the best news developments for rural Saskatchewan came in February when the government reversed its long-standing and wrongheaded 65-35 formula for funding rural nursing homes and hospitals to a more equitable 80-20 split. In a Feb. 22 news release, Health Minister Don McMorris announced the policy change as part of $133.1 million in health infrastructure and access improvements – money that included $500,000 for CT services in Melfort, $20.5 million for physician recruitment and retention and $49.3 million for design costs and initial capital construction of nursing homes or hospitals in 13 communities. More good news for rural Saskatchewan emerged out of the March budget with small business tax cuts, a raise in the basic income tax exemption to $14,535 and $55.6 million to reduce education property taxes that resulted in a $31.3-million savings for farmers. Add in road upgrades, a rural revenue-sharing pool increase, a $32-million increase in agriculture spending, a boost to crop insurance coverage and unseeded acreage benefits, seven new agriculture extension services satellite offices in Meadow Lake, Lloydminster, Assiniboia, Moosomin, Estevan, Shaunavon and Wadena and a five-year, $26-million renewable diesel program, and this was a pretty good budget for rural Saskatchewan. In May, rural Saskatchewan elected 13 Conservative MPs to a Conservative federal majority government. That government has since ended the long-gun registry and the Canadian Wheat Board – much to the delight of many rural people. Meanwhile, the province averted a June teachers’ strike. Premier Brad Wall also put his foot down on striking crop adjusters who attempted to pressure the government by walking off the job instead of processing flood damage claims. Notwithstanding the dip in oil prices to the $80-a-barrel range, it whatever comes into his head; and, if he is emulous of anyone who is a warrior, off he is in that direction, or of men of business, once more in that. His life has neither law nor order; and this distracted existence he terms joy and bliss and freedom; and so he goes on.” In the words of scholar and journalist H.L. Mencken: “The longer I live, the more I am convinced that the common people are doomed to be diddled forever.” Democracy works best with an educated, engaged electorate. The decisions of any good government are determined more so by the character of the individuals who make up the government than the number of individuals who make up the government. Sam Dyck Warman

was a relatively quiet July and August that allowed rural folks to dry out from the spring flood. But things quickly got a lot noisier in the fall with September pre-election announcements of new hospitals for North Battleford and Moose Jaw. The October election campaign was chock-full of promises – especially from Dwain Lingenfelter and the NDP - who staked their re-election hopes on spending an additional $3.1 billion in the coming four years. But it was obviously the goodies specifically for rural Saskatchewan from the Sask. Party and Wall that caught rural voters’ attention. Among them were plans to get more health care professionals in the field through $120,000 forgivable loans for new doctors, nurse practitio-

Reeve was elected by a slim majority I need to respond to Dale Janzen’s letter – Reeve Henry available 24/7 – as he has written some erroneous information. Janzen’s mistakes are surprising considering he is married to current RM Councilor Joanne Janzen who should know the facts. Tammy Knuttila, Corman Park’s former administrator, is in fact not a Chartered Accountant as Janzen states; he should get his designations correct. Janzen also states that in October 2010 the ratepayers gave an overwhelming majority to Reeve Mel Henry that would support change and Henry’s behaviour. In fact in October 2010 the vote for Reeve had 16 percent of the electorate turn out to vote of that 16% Henry got 9%. I’m not sure where Janzen studied math but no-

ners and nurses willing to relocate to under-served rural areas for five years. The Sask. Party also promised 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 STARS (Shock Trauma Air Rescue Society) medical helicopter program. The November vote produced a couple firsts in Saskatchewan electoral history – the first time the winning governing party cracked the 60-per-cent barrier in popular vote and the first time all rural candidates wound up on the government side in Wall’s 49-seat landslide. With no cabinet changes, it was quickly back to business for the Wall government. The mid-year financial update in early December suggested that $240 million in flood costs had pushed the provincial deficit to $304 million. This was followed by an uneventful December sitting of the legislature. All in all, though, this would have to be considered a pretty good year for rural folk.

where have I ever seen 9% being an overwhelming majority. Janzen also states Henry is available 24/7 – personally I don’t care if he is available 24/7. I will contact Henry if needed during normal work hours – I do expect the Reeve to be a leader, a team builder, a person with vision, a person who treats others with respect, a person fiscally responsible and a person who does not bully. Henry lacks all of these abilities and characteristics. I hope we can give Janzen his math wish once again and in October 2012 for the next vote for Reeve we give Henry his resounding majority of 9% of the vote, as that is all Henry deserves.

Langham rolls out vision for the future with new Official Community Plan By TERRY PUGH


he Town of Langham is rolling out a proposed vision for the future of the community. A new Official Community Plan (OCP) has been several years in the making, and is now open for public input, according to Langham Town Administrator Randy Sherstobitoff. In an interview last week with The Gazette, Sherstobitoff explained that the OCP represents a “forward-looking vision” for the community, and is aimed at mapping out an overall approach to managing anticipated future growth. “It’s a way of looking 20 to 25 years into the future,” Sherstobitoff said. “It gives the town a chance to look at some things that may be happening in a few years and help us iron out some of the little folds and wrinkles now, so they

Audit headaches easing for RM of Corman Park By TERRY PUGH


iring a full-time financial officer at the RM of Corman Park office is helping to address problems experienced in past years. In a presentation at the RM’s council meeting December 12, independent auditor Jeff Stromberg said the 2010 audit was delayed as a result of problems with the RM’s record-keeping. While Stromberg said there were no indications of fraud or misspending, he said the delays added about 20 to 25 per cent more to the cost of the audit. A letter dated November 30, 2011, from the accounting firm of Jensen Stromberg to the RM council was read aloud by Stromberg at the direction of Corman Park Reeve Mel Henry. In the letter, Stromberg stated at the time his office was asked to commence the audit of the financial statements of the RM of Corman

Park, the accounting records did not appear to be finalized or reconciled. “As a result, we were not able to complete the audit for the RM of Corman Park’s financial statements until the RM hired its financial officer, Bob Paisley. (Paisley) reconciled many of the general ledger accounts of the RM,” stated Stromberg. The auditor noted in the letter that the Municipalities Act requires the RM administrator to maintain a complete and accurate account of assets and liabilities, and all transactions affecting the financial position of the municipality, in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. Among other requirements, the RM is obliged to provide monthly bank reconciliations, along with a reconcilation of all assets and liability accounts. “At the time of our audit, these statements did not appear to reconcile to the related general ledger accounts or

were simply not available for our review,” stated Stromberg, reading from the letter. “Once the RM hired Bob Paisley, it was confirmed that the various statements of school tax liabilities did not reconcile to the general ledger of the RM. In future years, we recommend that the administrator maintain an accurate and complete set of financial records of the RM, including timely reporting to these various third parties that the RM collects funds on behalf of.” Stromberg also recommended the RM submit its financial records to the auditor by March 31 annually, so that the final audit can be completed by May. The RM’s financial statements are due on June 30 each year. Henry blamed the former administrator for the past problems and said progress is now being made in bringing the records up to date. Councilor Perry Ulrich said the RM is “very fortunate” to have a financial of-

ficer of Paisley’s calibre and said it’s important to have good accounting records. Ulrich noted that one of the reasons there were delays in the 2010 financial records was that the staff at the time was “under extreme stress and pressure.” In response to a question from councilor David Fox, Stromberg said 2010 was a difficult year for many municipalities across Saskatchewan because of a change in the way municipalities were required to account for municipal assets and liabilities. “There were complications with respect to tangible assets, such as roads and sewers and so on, and getting them recorded in the overall finanicial statement,” confirmed Stromberg. “It was a transition year. It made the statements very complex and other municipalities also had delays. But of the 25 municipalities we audited, this is the only one that was completed after the deadline of June 30.”

zoning bylaw or OCP bylaw. Sherstobitoff said the public hearing is a forum where people can speak to the proposals. “It’s not a question and answer session,” he said. “It’s a process where they can speak or provide written comments, and council will hear them. It’s open not just to Langham residents, but also to comments from neighouring municipalities.” The process is aimed at promoting cooperation between municipalities, and minimizing the potential for conflict, he said.

The proposed OCP projects a considerable amount of land to be used for residential housing to the north, east and southeast of the current developed areas. “There is a lot of land to the east that will be set aside for residences,” he noted. “It could accommodate between 600 to 700 lots.” The current rate of growth for new residential dwellings in Langham is running about three to four per cent annually since 2008, said Sherstobitoff. “That works out to about 15 Continued on Page 9 Please see LANGHAM PLANS

Enhanced secondary suite program takes effect Jan. 1 The Government of Saskatchewan has announced that $2 million will be allocated to the Secondary Suite Program to support the development of approximately 70 to 100 secondary suites over the next two to three years. The goal is to increase uptake of the program and to increase the supply of rental housing in the province. “We are following through with another promise under the provincial housing strategy,” Social Services Minister and Minister responsible for Saskatchewan Housing Corporation June Draude said. “We said that we would improve Saskatchewan Housing Corporation’s Secondary Suite program to increase program participation, and we are moving on that now. This initiative will help speed the development of housing that is

affordable for Saskatchewan people, a commitment that we take very seriously.” Secondary suites are selfcontained living units created within single-family homes. These suites include a kitchen, bathroom and a separate entrance, and provide another affordable housing option. The Secondary Suite Program provides eligible homeowners and rental property owners with financial assistance to build or renovate a secondary suite. In response to increased construction costs over the past two years, the level of assistance will be up to 50 per cent of the construction costs to a maximum of $30,000 per unit (an increase from the previous maximum of $24,000). Further, the loan forgiveness period will be reduced from 10 to five years. These enhancements are effec-

tive January 1, 2012. Taking advantage of the flexibility provided under the Investment in Affordable Housing 2011-2014 (IAH) agreement, which was signed in September 2011, secondary suite support will now be cost-shared with the federal government. Under the IAH, a total of $55 million was allocated to affordable housing programs. Secondary suites will be targeted to low- to moderateincome households. Gross household income of tenants must be within established Maximum Income Limits (MILs), which are reviewed annually. Current income limits are $52,000 for a household with dependents and $44,500 for a household without dependents.

LANGHAM PLANS to 20 new homes per year,” he stated. “It’s been steady. It’s not unbridled growth, but that’s good in many ways because it’s allowed us to make sure our infrastructure keeps up with that growth.” He added Langham has upgraded many aspects of its infrastructure in recent years and the water plant was built with expansion in mind. “We have upgraded the filters and we have the capacity for more growth,” he said. “Right now our water system is in good shape. But if a proposal came in for 200 lots all

at once, for example, then we would have to look at digging another well or increasing our holding capability.” He noted that the sewer infrastructure is also currently adequate, but will need to be upgraded at some point. “Right now we’re working on getting our new lift station in,” Sherstobitoff continued. “Once that is in place, our movement of sewer is in good shape for a while, but we’re getting to the edge, especially with the high water tables in the last year or two. And we’re nearing the end of the useful life of the current la-

goon so the planning process for dealing with that is already underway. We’ve been looking at that for the past two years but you don’t just come up with $3.5 million or $4 million from your back pocket. It takes planning.” He said there have been moves by the provincial and federal governments to provide more reliable and consistent sources of funding to municipalities over the past couple of years. “The gas tax is a source of predictable funding, for example,” he said. “And the Saskatchewan Urban Munic-


ipalities Association (SUMA) is working to get long-term funding from the province for infrastructure.” In addition to planning for growth in residential areas, the Langham OCP is also preparing for growth in its commercial and industrial sectors. A strip of land that runs parallel to Highway 16 on the north side of the road is projected for commercial development, while industrial and commercial development is planned for both sides of the highway west of the community.

Agrium is adding 40 percent to the production capacity of its potash mine near Vanscoy. The $1.5 billion expansion is expected to be complete by 2015. Agrium announced last week that the planned Brownfield Expansion will see a new processing train added to the existing facility. Once the underground production is ramped up, the expansion is expected to add an average of 750,000 tonnes of annual potash capacity to the mine. The expansion is expected to generate close to 80 projectbased jobs in the areas of project management, construction management and functional business. The construction phase of the project is expected to require more than 800 tradepersons at its peak, and approximately three million man-hours to complete. According to Agrium, the construction work on the capacity addition is expected to be completed in 2012 and 2013. Additional tonnage expansion is expected to be available in 2014. A total production capacity of 2.8 million tonnes is expected to be achieved in 2015.

Local couple’s passion for Africa began by sponsoring a child By ALICIA PEREIRA


hat makes someone look at their life and think, I want to travel thousands of miles away, leave all my comforts of home behind and volunteer? For Christy and Colin Zacharias it was a no brainer. “We started sponsoring children in 1998. We (just) had a daughter and becoming a parent made me realize I needed to make the world better. I had always said I wanted to sponsor a child, and I finally put my proverbial money where my mouth was. In 2006 my sister told me about the World Vision Canada volunteer program and I signed up immediately. Colin jumped on board soon after. The volunteers and staff have become like family and doing World Vision events is a passion for us both,” says the bubbly moth-

er. The dynamic husband and wife really are a dynamic duo, sponsoring five kids in Zambia, Rwanda, Uganda and Malawi. They are excited to be a part of World Vision’s Destination life Change program and will be visiting their newest sponsor child, a five-year-old named Lozibe, “I can’t wait to meet her and her family,” Christy happily says. The Destination Life Change volunteers are child sponsors with the desire and ability to motivate others to get involved. These volunteers come together over one common goal – to meet the children they sponsor, see where their money is going and the impact it is making to the children and communities. Christy and Colin are expecting to see a lot and are ready for whatever emotions may come up, “the statistics

in Malawi are staggering HIV/AIDS, unemployment, orphaned children - so many heavy things that I know will give us pause and break our hearts, but we get the extraordinary pleasure of not only visiting a newer project just beginning the sponsorship cycle, but we also get to visit another project that is near the end to see its success. So I think we’ll see the unique mixture of heartbreak and hopefulness.” What does Christy think about taking on this journey with her husband? She thinks it’s fantastic. “We are so thrilled to be able to do this together! Through this process, countless times, we have said to each other ‘I am so glad I get to do this with you!’ We have an amazing marriage and travelling together makes anywhere home. We each posses a unique set of skills and together we are able to create

a fuller picture of what we see than we would working alone. These experiences remind me of all of the amazing abilities my husband has and makes me grateful that we get to be on this journeycombining our skills with our passion for Africa.” The Zacharias’ message to other Canadians is a simple one, “When we met our sponsored girl Phannet in Zambia last year, I remember feeling so blown away by how much value you get for your money. In Canada $40 doesn’t buy you much, but there it buys a life-changing hope. Having seen it myself, I can’t imagine not helping children and families in this way if we have the means to do so. For about the cost of a Timmy’s a day, we can be the difference in a child’s life. These first-hand experiences have made us re-think how we spend every dime we have been given.”

been on a hockey version of “Pest Hill” going into the Christmas break. A trio of home-ice losses last week…6-3 to Kamloops on Wednesday, 4-2 against Moose Jaw on Friday and 5-1 versus Kelowna on Saturday…put a sour end to the unofficial first half of the 2011-2012 campaign for the Bridge City Bunch. “It’s not the way you want to go into the break,” explained left winger Chris Collins, who scored the lone Saskatoon goal Saturday against the Rockets. The first 35 games have been extremely different when it comes to results for the Blades. They matched last season’s quick start through 25 games with an 18-6-1 record before tumbling to a 2-8 mark in the final 10 games. “In our last 10 games, they’ve been those type of games where we have opportunities to put the puck in the net and we’re missing those opportunities,” said Saskatoon defenceman and captain Duncan Siemens. “Their team is building off of that momentum off of those big saves and missed opportunities and it’s kind of de-

flating us and then they’re taking advantage of it.” The Bridge City Bunch have gone from being the top team in the entire Western Hockey League after 25 games to being in a tie for sixth place in the Eastern Conference with the Regina Pats while in the midst of 10 off days with a 20-14-1 record.


“We’ll be busy over the holidays here on the phone just to see what’s out there,” responded Saskatoon general manager and head coach Lorne Molleken when asked if he’ll be looking at making changes to his roster. “But, anything we do this year will have to impact next year with the Memorial Cup (the Blades will be the host

team in the C.H.L. championship tournament in May, 2013). “It’s a situation that we’ll look at very closely. Trades aren’t the answer to everything…we’d like to build from within, but there’s some things that we need to address and we’ll take care of that over the holidays plus heading up until the deadline (for trades on January 10).” Until that happens, the Blades will be looking to stop the slide and get off! ***** BLADES PLAYER OF THE WEEK – One of the most consistent performers through the first 35 games of the season is recognized with this writer’s award…even though the three losses last week don’t feel that good for Jesse Paradis. But, the 20-yearold left winger has equaled his goal output of last season in Moose Jaw already with nine. Add in a team-leading 20 assists and the Winnipeg product has a career high 29 points with half a season remaining. His consistency is evidenced by the fact he has picked up a scoring point in 24 of 35 games while playing a solid defensive game.



Staff and management of the Saskatoon All Weather Windows manufacturing company were on hand last week for the unveiling of the new zamboni for The Legends Centre in Warman.

not want their official working name on the building, they supported the suggestion for The Legends Centre that came from a Warman Sports and Cultural Village Committee member and was endorsed by the committee as a whole,” Spence added. “The Legends Centre name seemed to fit in to the working plans of the neighbourhood and we are very proud to introduce to our community, our region and beyond our official name for the facility: The Legends Centre.” Gary Philipchuk described the decade of work involved in building the new hockey arena as “a journey” and said several individuals played a major role in keeping things on track, including Paul McGonigal, manager of parks and community services for the Town of Warman, former WSCV Campaign Coordinator Mark Campbell and current campaign coordinator Heather Chatfield. He also thanked the original members and current volunteer members of the building campaign committee. Warman town councilor Kendall Shram, an ordained minister, recited a short prayer as a way of blessing the facility, noting that recreation is an important part of every community. Corporate sponsorships are a vital part of the fundraising

efforts of the facility, noted Spence. Advertising and sponsorships are helping to offset the cost of operations at the new multipurpose facility. All-Weather Windows, an Edmonton-based manufacturing company with a branch office in Saskatoon, is one of those major corporate donors. That company has financed a new zamboni and Aaron Latimer, vice-president of marketing for the company, stated “We are a giving organization and we are committed to giving back to the communities which support us. We are honoured to play a part in the development of The Warman Sport & Cultural Village and excited for the people of Warman who will use this wonderful facility.”

DREAM TO REALITY Sharon Doell, one of the original members of the campaign committee, was on hand for the event. In an interview prior to taking a skate around the brand-new ice surface, she said it was “an exciting night” because the dream had finally become a reality. “It’s been so many years in the making,” she said. “This facility is so badly-needed in town. And to see it completed to the stage it is, and to look at what’s been accomplished, is unbelievable. It’s very rewarding.” Doell said the campaign

In the end, she said, it’s a facility that will benefit the entire community. “As the years went by, we brought in more partners and more volunteers with more ideas, and it just went from there.” She said the vision of the overall facility changed as circumstances changed. “Originally, I sure didn’t envision anything this big or this grand,” she said. “We started off small and it just kept on growing.” She said initially, the project was budgeted to cost about $6 million, and work was begun.

Dalmeny Curling Club meets goal through fundraising efforts

NEW LOOK The Martensville Sports Centre is sporting a new look these days as the signage on the south side of the building has been

changed to incorporate the city s new logo. New signs will also be installed shortly over the main doors of the hockey rink and curling rink entrances.


The Dalmeny Curling Club’s fundraising events have raised a total of $2098 - helping the club meet its goal for annual operating expenses. Pat Sullivan, a member of the curling club and chair of the fundraising committee, said the club’s raffle and walkathon were on target, and he thanked members of the community for contributing. Meanwhile, the curling club is hopeful that ice will be put in the rink in the near fu-

ture. Problems with the building’s furnace and electrical system resulted in frozen waterlines bursting. Those problems are currently being dealt with, noted Sullivan. The curling club’s regular leagues are currently playing at the Langham Curling Club, and Sullivan said the cooperation between the two clubs is very beneficial. “We’re hopeful we’ll get things back on track over the Christmas break,” he said.

POLICE COMMISSION in Corman Park was under the directon of a committee of council. In 2002, we formally established a Board of Police Commissioners, as stipulated under provincical legislation, which prescribes that you have to have non-political people on the commmission as well.” He noted that all expenditures related to the Corman Park Police Service are under “double scrutiny” by both the Police Commission and the Corman Park Council. The investigation into the complaints by Bryden was conducted by the Regina Police Service. That investigation, which took aproximately one year to complete, concluded that McGillivray was “not guilty” of any offense. “The chief was exonerated in 2008 of the serious charges,” said Hobday. “But there remained outstanding, at that time, the issue around the comment about the token female.” That complaint was referred to the Saskatchewan Human RIghts Commission. Bryden has not had access to the Regina Police Commission report, and she maintains that this denial is part of an ongoing coverup. In her presentation to council at the December 12 meeting, Bryden stated that in

2006, two members were “removed” from the RM Police Commission. “I filed my official complaint with Ed Hobday, the chair of the Police Commission, on November 22, 2006,” Bryden told the council meeting. “And before he shared my complaint with the rest of the board, he dismissed Joe Kasahoff.” Hobday said the change in membership of the police commission actually occured on November 13, 2006, more than a week before Bryden lodged her complaint. The RM council as a whole, at an open meeting, decided on which council members would be on the various committees, noted Hobday. “This is a process that happens annually,” Hobday said. “In terms of the police commission, the practice was to rotate councilors.” Hobday said there was “no hint” from Bryden that she was going to lodge a complaint. “It came out of the blue,” he said.

Warman golfer off to World Youth Places of Challenge tournament in Florida


Please email for changes



hile most Canadians will likely be glued to their TV sets watching the World Junior Hockey Championships over the Christmas break, a young golfer from Warman will be competing in another world-calibre tournament on a Florida golf course. Cole Bergen, a Warman High School student who claimed the first-ever Legends Golf Club junior championship last summer, has accepted an invitation to participate in the Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) World Youth Challenge. The tournament, sponsored by Golfweek magazine, is a ranked event that has attracted many top young golfers from 20 countries over its 19-year history. Many of those golfers have gone on to become recognized names on the PGA Tour. The 19th annual CJGA World Youth Challenge is slated for December 27-30 at the Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club in Palm Harbor, near Tampa Bay, Florida. The annual open event is a three day individual stroke play competition that will also include a Parent/ Junior best-ball on the first day. Juniors will have the opportunity to play the Copperhead Course (first and final rounds), home of the PGA Tour Transitions Championship. The Highlands North Course will play host to the second round of competition. Sheldon Bergen, Cole’s father, will be heading to the tournament with his son. He says it offers a great opportunity to share a unique fatherson experience by playing on one of the top-ranked courses in the United States. “Cole has always loved to golf,” said Bergen in a telephone interview December 8. “He’s kind of a natural at it. He’s had a few lessons, but mostly it just comes

Cole Bergen of Warman heads to Florida next week naturally to him. Last year he participated in several junior golf tournaments in Saskatchewan as part pf the Maple Leaf Junior Tour.” While his son “struggled a bit this past year as a result of growing 6 or 7 inches” and has had to readjust his golf swing, Bergen said Cole’s distances off his drives are longer because of his added strength. The discipline that comes from playing in a lot of tournaments has also helped his son mature, he noted. “I give him a lot of credit when it comes to teeing off in front of a crowd of people,” he said. “That sort of thing makes most people pretty nervous.” Bergen said he is excited about the prospect of his son

playing in the world challenge tournament. “It’s a bit inconvenient over Christmas,” he said. “But Cole’s eyes just lit up when he got the invitation, and it’s the kind of opportunity that doesn’t come along all that often.” To get in top form for the event, Cole Bergen practices in a room in the basement of the family home. “I set up a simulated hitting range in the basement,” explained Sheldon Bergen. “We have 9-foot ceilings, and a portion of the basement is walled off in a U-shape with a big curtain. There’s a mat and rubber tees, so Cole can hit down there for an hour a day.” The Canadian Junior Golf Association is a national junior golf association dedicated to providing high level competition and instruction to Canada’s junior golfers. The CJGA competitive developmental program begins at the age of five where beginning golfers are introduced to the game through the CJGA Junior Linkster Program that offers over 80 tour stops across Canada and includes regional, provincial, and national championships. The elite junior is also able to represent the CJGA and Canada at a number of international events. Established in 1993, the Canadian Junior Golf Association had a specific goal in mind – to give junior golfers in Canada an opportunity to develop their competitive skills.

Weekly Horoscopes CAPRICORN The countdown begins. Make sure you cross all your Ts and dot all your Is, Capricorn. An organization makes a plea. Heed the call only if you can.

VIRGO Lines grow longer every day, but you manage the hassle with ease with a young friend by your side, Virgo. A short road trip does you a world of good.

AQUARIUS Passion ignites, and you whisk that special someone off on an adventure. Pick your battles at work carefully, Aquarius. Not everything is worth fighting for.

LIBRA Health crises cease, giving a relative a new lease on life. Invite them over to celebrate, Libra, and let this be a lesson to you that changes in lifestyle do matter.

PISCES You re playing your cards too tight. Open up, Pisces, and let others in. You won t believe the difference it makes. A plan comes full circle.

SCORPIO Rest finally comes after a whirlwind of activity. Savor the moment, Scorpio. It may be a while before you have time to yourself again.

ARIES Uh-uh-uh, Aries. The report is not finished yet. Give it one more review. Something is amiss. Music lightens the mood at home and gets everyone into the spirit.

SAGITTARIUS Your finances take a beating, but you manage to bounce back quickly. Childcare issues are not as complicated as they seem. Think, Sagittarius, think.

TAURUS Plans must be altered quickly in order to attend a lastminute holiday function. All will not be for naught, as you will have more fun than you expected, Taurus. GEMINI Volunteerism is a gift in and of itself. Don t be afraid to partake of it and bestow it on another, Gemini. Something thought long gone reappears. CANCER Keep your eye on the ball, Cancer. Distractions beckon at every turn. The whirlwind of activity at home comes to an abrupt end, thanks to some savvy thinking. LEO The key to good times lies in friends and family. Make sure you re surrounded by many, Leo. A gift from the heart warms a friend s heart.

The older students from the United Church put on a puppet play about Tyrone & Jolene and Tyrone wanting lots of toys but not to give presents himself. Jolene tells him there is more to Christmas than toys or presents, and that the greatest gift was the baby Jesus who was born to give us everlasting life and died to forgive all our sins, and that is why we give gifts to others and they can be making & giving cookies, making cards or helping a neighbour or older person with chores. The Youth Group then performed a skit about an Angel That was Not so Per-

MOVING ON Neufeld Building Movers were busy Monday and Tuesday preparing to move Warman s former post office building from its location on Klassen Street. Most recently occupied by Martensville MLA Nancy Heppner, the building belongs to the Town of Warman and was relocated to Prairie Oasis Park in the centre of the ball diamonds. Once complete, the facility will reportedly house a concession and washrooms. The vacant lot left behind on Klassen Street will be developed but no further details were made available.
