The result of the increase was a number of angry town hall meetings, and calls for the plan to be halted. In the end, however, Dundurn Town Council decided to continue with the project. Residents of the approximately 300 households in the town were given the option to pay the full $7,924 upfront and in full, or to have the cost spread out over the next 15 years with increases to their existing water bills.

Residents learn the hard way to ‘always lock your vehicle’ Sometime between the hours of 8:00 p.m. March 17, 2012 and 8:00 a.m. March 18, 2012, a Toyota Tacoma truck was vandalized on the 100 block of 1st Avenue South. It appears that someone walked on the truck causing the roof to be damaged and dented. Sometime between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m. on March 16th, 2012, a 2004 Dodge Ram truck was stolen from a residence on Kinsmen Crescent. The truck was recovered two days later on Avenue H in Saskatoon.

There were also several other vehicles on Kinsmen Crescent and a garage that were gone through and items were stolen. Currently missing are credit cards, wallets, keys, garage door openers, sunglasses, hunting gear and a book of CDs. The Martensville RCMP are reminding residents to: • Always lock your vehicle • Never leave your keys in your vehicle unattended • Do not leave a spare key in your vehicle • Never keep valuables in your

A member of the Warman RCMP talks to a driver during a recent traffic enforcement blitz

Aggressive drivers focal point of police across the province...and closer to home By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

Those drivers that blow by the stop sign and out onto the highway are caught on camera. About a kilometer further south along the highway, the driver is caught for real, as the offending vehicle is pulled over and issued a ticket. The Mounties, along with an officer from the Corman Park Police Service, are destined to have a busy morning, issuing more than 20 tickets in the space of 90 minutes. It takes about ten minutes to complete all the paperwork, and with three officers on duty, they just barely complete one ticket before they’re alerted by radio to pull over another vehicle headed their way. Each ticket carries a $230 fine, which is a pretty substantial incen-

tive for violators to change their driving habits. For Cpl. Dean Flaman, the officer in charge of the exercise, the real value of the enforcement blitz is education. “When people hear in the coffee shops that the Mounties wrote 20 tickets that morning, they pay attention,” said Flaman. “But it’s not so much the numbers. It’s the presence. There were probably 4,000 vehicles that passed by that checkpoint that morning, and each driver saw what was happening and will hopefully get the message.” Flaman said drivers need to realize they must come to a complete stop before proceeding into an intersection. He noted the intersections near Warman and Martensville on High-

distracted by looking down at your lap.” He said many people are “addicted” to texting, and resort to checking their messages while stopped at red lights. “There’s a perception that it’s acceptable to do that,” Flaman said. “It’s not. You’re in a lane of traffic. You’re not parked. You still need to pay attention to the road. But we see that all the time. During the afternoon commute home, you pull up to a red light and every second head is bobbing down to look at their lap. Why would they do that if they’re not texting?” Flaman said the ironic part is that the content of the text messages is almost always very trivial. “It’s certainly not worth getting into a head-on crash over,” he said.

Borden Care Home addition officially opens By LORRAINE OLINYK lolinyk@sasktel.net

T

he Borden Care Home addition was officially opened on March 16. Chair of the board Craig Hamilton declared the new facility officially open after providing a brief history of how it came to be built. Initial public meetings were held and the former Borden Hospital Foundation and trust fund decided that the money should go to buid a Personal Care Home. The first 10 bed facility was built over 10 years ago. Increasing demand for more facilities led to additional fundraising. Last year, construction on the addition to the building was begun, and it was completed recently. The addtion consists of six double rooms to acomodate senior couples.

BORDEN & DISTRICT News On behalf of the Provincial Government, MLA Randy Weekes congratulated the board on their addition, saying that 1 in 7 people in Sask are 65 or older and that will be 1 in 5 in just a few years. Weekes then handed out Sask Pins to anyone wanting them. Guests could tour the new addition, with four of the rooms occupied and two rooms available, while the main building has ten occupants, with a few new ones coming in the last month or so and three moved in to the city. Plaques were placed on the walls of the hallway joining the two buildings and these are for Community Supporters- Platinum- Laverne Heibert (Dyck) & the Dyck family, gold- Paul Katerynch, Delbert

Craig introduced some of the original building committeeDelbert Enns, Clarence Williams, Murray Assman, Linda Dyck, Richard Mireau and thanked the Towns of Borden, Radisson and Langham and the RM’s of Great Bend, Corman Park and Mayfield who all contributed. The present board consists of Craig

wear it. Unfortunately, many people wear shoes that don’t fit properly. This can result in minor discomfort or pain but more importantly, ill fitting shoes can lead to long term or permanent foot problems. Properly fitted shoes guarantee comfort and keep your feet healthy. So treat your feet right by visiting the professional footcare specialists at Foster’s Shoes. Foster’s team of footcare specialists is ready to assist you with properly fitted footwear to enable you to pursue your lifestyl and activities in comfort and style.

On August 1, 1980, after a full training course, Foster’s Shoes opened its store in Saskatoon, with ourselves, Len and Hilda Romanski, as owners and operators. The need for a shoe store specializing in foot-care and foot health was apparent, and so, working closely with podiatrists and other medical professionals, we began a very successful career in footwear. Now, 31 years later, we are proud to be the largest orthopedic and comfort shoe store in Saskatchewan. We are also trained in measuring and fitting Sigvaris compression stockings, orthoticfriendly insoles, Organic stockings and much more. In 1990 our son, Mike, joined the family business, opening a Foster’s Shoe Store in Regina. He began his training to become a certified peodorthist, also working closely with the medical profession. At Foster’s we believe being active is the key to a healthy lifestyle, and that it all starts at the bottom: yes, our feet! It is difficult to work all day or enjoy an evening walk when your feet are hurting, for reasons ranging from fallen arches and corns to ingrown toenails, heel spurs and more. At Foster’s Shoes we start with a staff professionally trained to determine the individual needs of our customers. Often a properly fitting supportive shoe to accommodate a customer’s individual need is all that is required. When further help is needed, it is our duty to recommend a podiatrist or other medical professional to ensure our customers enjoy the very best in foot health and comfort. In our 31 years of operation we have experienced many changes, but we’ve always kept comfort and healthy feet first and foremost in our minds. Foster’s Shoes is proud to provide its customers with a computerized footanalysis machine for an accurate foot assessment. The iStep is exclusive to us in Saskatchewan. This system performs a complete mapping of the plantar pressure generated by a person’s feet.

Martensville library circulation leader in Wheatland regional system By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

T

he Martensville branch library has come a long way since it opened for business on January 20, 1997. What started out as a few shelves of books occupying a small corner of the Lions Heritage building 15 years ago, has grown to one of the most widely-used branches of the Wheatland Regional Library system. The Martensville branch, which moved to larger quarters in the civic centre on Main Street in 1999, handled 34,655 check-outs and 37,779 check-ins during 2011. That’s the highest numbers for any of the 46 branches of the regional library.

“It’s been a gradual increase in circulation numbers over the years,” explianed Marla Skomar, community librarian at the Martensville branch. “I think last year we ranked third in the province, and last year we had a really good year with a lot of people coming through the doors, so that boosted our numbers. We edged out the Warman branch, which also had very high circulation.” She attributed the increase in circulation numbers to the growth of the City of Martensville. “We get a lot of young families with children coming in to use the services and the resources,” she said. “The city has grown so much over the last five years, and I think

Record high employment levels set for February

E

mployment in Saskatchewan rose to a record high for the month of February with 521,800 employed, as the number of people working grew by 6,100 compared to a year ago. The province also set new highs for the month in fulltime jobs and the size of its labour force, according to today’s report from Statistics Canada. “This is another sign of Saskatchewan’s steady economic performance,” Advanced Education, Employment and Immigration Minister Rob Norris said. “I’m encouraged by these strong numbers and by the optimism of Saskatchewan’s small business owners in the year ahead.” Off-reserve Aboriginal employment was up by 5,900 (17.4 per cent) for nine consecutive months of year-overyear increases while Aboriginal youth employment was up by 1,400 (17.1 per cent) for four consecutive months of yearover-year increases.

The strategizing has already started for an estimated 250 men representing 36 teams in the Warman Sport & Cultural Village (WSCV) campaign’s 2012 Stanley Cup Draft Spectacular. The event, which will be held at the Brian King Centre in Warman, has grown in popularity since the first draft was held in 2009. Last year featured 33 teams and sold out this year with 36 teams. Billed as a “Gentlemen’s Evening”, the draft consists of three pools of 12 teams (of up to eight people each). Complete with a “league commissioner” directing the draft as well as a full complement of data entry personnel putting picks up on display via computers and projectors, the draft is a wildly popular event for hockey fans. Making the draft even more tricky is the fact some NHL teams could still make – or be eliminated from – the playoffs on the final night of the regular season – which is 48 hours after the WSCV draft. Each week standings in the draft will be published in the Clark’s Crossing Gazette.

Saskatchewan’s unemployment rate in February was 5.0 per cent, tied with Alberta for the lowest in the country, and well below the national unemployment rate of 7.4 per cent. Regina’s unemployment rate of 4.4 per cent was the lowest among major Canadian cities. Saskatoon’s unemployment rate was 6.0 per cent. Career opportunities in Saskatchewan have attracted much interest in connection with the province’s job recruitment mission to Ireland. “We are working closely with employers to meet Saskatchewan’s labour market needs,” Norris said. “Our strategy includes record investment in post-secondary education and skills training with significant support for First Nations and Métis people as well as the recruitment and retention of skilled labour in Canada and abroad.”

having a library in the community is one of the attractions that draws people here.” Skomar said the introduction of the province-wide inter-library loan system has also boosted the popularity of the local branch libraries, because patrons can access any book from any public library in Saskatchewan. “It just makes everything so much more convenient,” she said. “People can go online and request a book, and then pick it up at their local branch library on their way home from work.” She said the online system is also ideal for handling the increase in “e-books”, which are delivered electronically and can be read using a computer or tablet. “We saw quite an increase in the requests for e-books,

and inquiries about how to use that service after Christmas,” Skomar stated. “I think a lot of people got e-book readers as presents.” To celebrate its achievement as the most widely-used branch in the Wheatland system, the Martensville library held a Patron Appreciation Night on Monday, March 19. Local author Dianne Young of Martensville was on hand to unveil her latest children’s book, entitled “Dear Flyary.” The Martensville library, like the other branches in the area, hosts a variety of programs and services beyond lending books, videos and periodicals. “One of our most popular programs is the Story Time for pre-schoolers,” said Skomar. “That happens every Thursday morning at 10:15.

It’s geared to 3 and 4 yearolds, and it runs from midSeptember to mid-May.” There is a summer reading program for school-age chidren and a Teen Challenge reading program for older youth that is run system-wide by Wheatland Regional Library. The Martensville branch also hosts a “Crafternoon” drop-in session on the first and third Fridays of the month, where adults

can work on their knitting, scrapbooking, crocheting and other hobbies while visiting with others. The branch has computers that members of the commuity can use to access the internet or prepare documents, and there is also a photocopy service available. Skomar gave credit the to the volunteer library board members, saying they put in many hours on programming and fundraising.

Viterra takeover reminder of change

C O M M E N TA R Y

SK: Aging Opportunity

It’s funny how the changes that most effect rural Saskatchewan often start somewhere else. You don’t have to do much more than look out your window to see the result of those changes. They come in form of a semi driving by to the nearest grain terminal 40 miles away. Or maybe it’s the fact that there isn’t as much traffic where there were once kids on the way to school or people busily shopping at their local grocery store. But when you stop and think about it, it’s change that started somewhere else - sometimes in a corporate board room half a world away but sometimes as close as the marbled halls of the Saskatchewan legislature. One recent story reminds how change to rural life can start as quiet rumble across the ocean. News of late sees a possible takeover of Viterra Inc. as a result of Swiss commodities conglomerate Glencore International making an initial $5.44-billion offer to buy the Regina-based company. As we all know, Viterra - the country’s largest grain handler and this province’s biggest business at $8-billion in revenue - is the remnants of what once were the Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Alberta Wheat Pools that abandoned its one-member, one-share cooperative approach a decade ago. That produced a visible change to the rural landscape, as smaller grain elevators in virtually every community were demolished in favour of the inland terminal model that private companies had already proved success.

id you know that Saskatchewan has significantly more government employees than all other province in Canada? This glut of government employees means taxpayers are paying a small bundle each year. Fortunately, the solution is fairly pain free for politicians – as bureaucrats retire, don’t rehire. To be more specific: don’t automatically rehire. To be sure, in some cases you may have to fill key spots, but overall, the government should have the flexibility to move people around and reduce the total number of staff on the government payroll; at least down to the national average. Consider research from the Frontier Centre for Public Policy that shows per person, Saskatchewan had the highest number of provincial and municipal employees in all of Canada for 2010. The study uses Statistics Canada data and notes Saskatchewan had 114 people working for either the provincial and municipal government for every 1,000 citizens. That number is significantly higher than the Canadian average of just 84 municipal and provincial government employees per thousand citizens. Clearly, if Saskatchewan could get by with 84 employees per 1,000 citizens (like other provinces do), your family could save a small fortune each year as a result of lower government staffing costs. While the study didn’t place a figure on potential savings for Saskatchewan taxpayers, it did provide one for Manitoba; another province with an over-sized government workforce. At 103 municipal and provincial bureaucrats per thousand citizens, the Frontier Centre calculated that Manitoba could save its taxpayers $1.2 billion in salary and benefit costs each year merely by bringing its workforce size in-line with the national average. Given Saskatchewan has a larger government workforce than Manitoba, no doubt Saskatchewan taxpayers could see, at worst similar savings and at best larger savings if government downsized to the national average. Thankfully, scaling back Saskatchewan’s bloated bureaucracy shouldn’t be too hard as the civil service is aging and many are nearing retirement. Freedom of information data obtained by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation shows that over the next ten years, 4,329 provincial government employees are expected to retire. At the municipal level, it’s not known how many employees are about to ride off into the sunset, but it’s probably safe to assume many are also nearing retirement. Fortunately, the provincial government already appears to be heading down the bureaucracy reduction path. In their 2010-11 budget, they announced a goal of reducing the number of provincial employees by 15 per cent over four years. Freedom of information data obtained by the CTF suggests the provincial government has already achieved some success in that area; having reduced the number of full time employees from 11,962 in 2009-10 to 11,574 in 2010-11. Certainly there’s more work to do, but we've seen a step in the right direction. Continuing to reduce the bureaucracy will allow the province to continue to pay off the province’s core debt and reduce both school taxes and income taxes. At the local level, reducing bloated staffing levels will allow local governments to invest more funds in infrastructure, pay off debt and perhaps even freeze property taxes. Clearly, there’s savings to be had when it comes to reducing the number of government employees in Saskatchewan. Fortunately for taxpayers and politicians, achieving such savings can come without much in the way of labour pain.

Provincial Politics

From that sense, one might argue that further change to being owned by those with shares in a larger private multi-national conglomerates wouldn’t be that big a change. This might be the case. After all, other private grain companies and terminals in recent years have seen ownership changes with little or no effect on local operations. With change being the constant, it is important to not automatically assume it is always going to be a negative. That said, it’s also possible that a takeover of Viterra may be a bigger change that some might first realize. If Glencore isn’t the successful bidder in what seems a relatively amiable takeover (it’s initial asking price is roughly 30-per-cent more than the average Viterra share trading price in 2011) there are still a number of other suitors waiting in the wings. A potential bidding war might even be possible, as The Wall Street Journal is now reporting that Cargill, Archer Daniels Midland and Bunge, and even Calgary-based fertilizer company Agrium are all interested. Of course, any such bidding war is great for Viterra shareholders. But it might not be great for Saskatchewan - and especially rural Saskatchewan. In Regina, there’s the lingering question of what

of a strategic consideration, even though we don’t consider a grain-handling company a strategic resource,” Wall told reporters at the legislature in Regina. Of course, all this is now happening because of another faraway decision - the one made by the federal Conservative government in Ottawa to do away with the Canadian Wheat Board as a single-desk seller that has contributed mightily to making a takeover of Viterra much more inviting. As suggested, the perpetual change to the rural Saskatchewan landscape comes about as a result of starts somewhere else.

Beavers, boars, gophers... oh my! Federal Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz and Saskatchewan Agriculture Minister Bob Bjornerud announced $1.8 million to help producers and rural municipalities (RMs) control beavers, rats, wild boars and gophers. “These pests can be a significant economic liability for our hardworking farmers and can cause damage to farmland,” said Ritz. “This funding will ensure the continuation of successful programming to mitigate pest damage and help prevent financial losses for Saskatchewan farmers.” “Excess moisture in many areas of the province over the past two years has led to increased damage caused by beavers at a significant financial cost to producers,” Bjornerud said. “This funding will help producers and RMs mitigate this damage, as well as problems caused by rats, wild

happens to the head office jobs (the ones that haven’t already been moved to Calgary) if Viterra is swallowed up by any of these larger entities. But a perhaps even more interesting impact for rural residents is the impact on the competition in the grain-marketing industry - regardless of who winds up owning Viterra. Premier Brad Wall rightfully points out that the issue of competition - something that might have to be sorted out by the federal Competition Bureau in Ottawa - comes into play even if the Canadianbased grain is taken over by one of its current competitors or a consortium. “That’s more

boars and gophers.” The federal and provincial governments will provide $500,000 to the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM) to continue administering the Beaver Control Program in 2012-13. According to the most recent 2011 claims, approximately 35,000 beavers have been removed under last year’s pilot program, saving farmers and ranchers thousands of dollars in damages. SARM will also receive $1 million to continue administering the Rat Control Program in 2012-13, an increase of $250,000 over last year. This is an 85 per cent increase in funding for rat control since 2007. In addition, SARM will receive $50,000 to continue administering the wild boar control program. Producers will also continue to have access to funding for the control of gophers

in 2012-13. Under the Gopher Control Rebate Program, producers and RMs are eligible to receive a 50 per cent rebate on eligible gopher control products. The federal government’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency has also recently approved registration of two per cent liquid strychnine for use in 2012 to help control gophers. “There were resolutions brought to our convention floor calling for the continuation of the Beaver Control Program and we are pleased

federal and provincial governments are addressing this concern,” SARM President David Marit said. “Along with increased funding for rat control, continued funding for the control of wild boars and gophers, and access to strychnine to control gophers, producers now have more tools to help them address the problems caused by these animals.” Funding for these programs is being provided under the federal-provincial Growing Forward agreement.

Eagle Creek colony men guilty of illegal trapping

S

even Asquith area men plead guilty to 11 counts under the Saskatchewan Wildlife Act and Regulations for illegal trapping and were fined $9,500 in provincial court in Saskatoon. The charges were laid as the result of an investigation by the Ministry of Environment in Saskatoon. Conservation Officers determined that members of the Eagle Creek Hutterite Colony were using unlawful trapping equipment such as free hanging neck

snares and leg hold traps that were not modified as required. The men were primarily targeting coyotes but several white tail deer were also caught, not reported to authorities and allowed to waste. “Illegal trapping robs the people of Saskatchewan of the benefits of our natural resources and the provincial government is committed to ensure those who abuse the resource are appropriately dealt with,” Ministry of Envi-

WARMAN RCMP REPORT

Collisions, traffic enforcement, domestic disputes part of busy week Submitted by Sgt. Warren Gherasim

Acting Commander Warman RCMP Detachment

TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS On March 10 at 11:45 p.m., members of the Warman RCMP observed a white Chevrolet Impala operating erratically westbound on highway 16, east of Langham. Officers observed the vehicle to be weaving and initiated a traffic stop. The driver of the vehicle was exhibiting signs of impairment and failed a roadside breath test. He was arrested and taken to the police detachment where he provided samples of his breath that were over twice the legal limit. A 44 year old Saskatoon man was released on charges of impaired driving and is scheduled to appear in Provincial Court in Saskatoon on April 17. TWO-VEHICLE COLLISION On March 11 at 1:40 a.m., the Warman RCMP responded to a two vehicle collision 24 kms west of Saskatoon involving a white Ford pick-up truck and a red Acura.. The driver of the truck had failed to obey a stop sign at the grid intersection onto Highway #14 and collided with the eastbound Acura.. Six of the seven occupants of the two vehicles were not injured. The driver of the Acura suffered a few cuts but was treated at the scene and released. Both vehicles suffered major damages and had to be towed from scene. The driver of the truck, a 17 year old Saskatoon man, was charged for failing to obey a stop sign under the Traffic Safety Act. WARMAN COLLISION On March 12 at 8:40 a.m., the Warman RCMP responded to a non-injury collision between a van and an SUV at the intersection of 1st Avenue and Peters St. in Warman. The driver of the van proceeded from the yield sign and was struck by an oncoming car. Both vehicles sustained minor damages. No one was injured. The driver of the van, a 45 year old Calgary man was charged with proceeding from a yield sign before it was safe to do so contrary to the Traffic Safety Act. STOP SIGN BLITZ On the morning of March 14 Warman RCMP conducted an enforcement operation on the stop sign at the intersection of highway 11 and the Warman South Access. During the morning rush hour more than 20 violation tickets were written for people who violated the stop sign by not coming to a complete stop. This operation was a part of the Prov-

ince Wide Operation dubbed March Madness which targeted aggressive driving such as intersection violations and cell phone use. The public are reminded that in order to comply with the law, a vehicle must come to a complete stop at a stop sign. This means that the wheels must come to a complete halt relative to the ground surface. A slow roll through an intersection is a violation and can result in a charge. The penalty for a stop sign violation is a $230 fine.

with MD Ambulance, were dispatched to a disturbance call at a residence in the rural area west of Saskatoon. Upon arrival, they noted that damage had been done to the property and that there were numerous youths in the area, many of whom had fled from the residence. Medical assistance was provided to one teen-aged female. The situation was calmed and the matter has been turned over to child and Family Services for their involvement. No charges were laid.

CRIMES AGAINST PEOPLE On March 9, shortly after 10 p.m., the RCMP responded to a domestic disturbance on Main Street West, in Warman. It was reported that the disturbance involved drinking and yelling. Upon arrival, the situation had calmed down as the residents were found to be calm and cooperative. A female person located in the residence was investigated and found to be on conditions to not be in contact with a male subject who was also at the residence. The female was cautioned and cooperated by leaving to go to another location in order to remain compliant with the court order. No charges were laid. EAR DRUM BUSTERS On March 10 shortly after midnight the Warman RCMP were called to a noise complaint on the 100 block of Canora Street, Warman. Upon arrival the officers heard loud music coming from the residence. The officers were able to find the owner and a warning was issued. The owner was cooperative and turned down the music. No further complaints were received. No charges were laid. DOMESTIC DISTURBANCE On March 9, shortly after 5 a.m., RCMP officers, along

BORDEN DISTURBANCE On March 13, shortly after 7:00 in the morning, the Radisson RCMP were dispatched to a 911 call in the Borden district, a young child was concerned about an argument between two adults.

The vehicle came in the first time causing damages to the lawn ornaments. The vehicle returned short time later and was approached by the owner. The vehicle sped up, turning towards the owner and hit him in the legs, causing him to fall against the car and suffer large cut to his head. The vehicle sped off and fled the area. The RCMP are still investigating. The officers received another complaint of an attempted Break and Enter into a garage and a car parked on the driveway that had been rummaged through. It is suspected the culprits were spooked because of the alarms.

VEHICLE DAMAGE Warman RCMP responded to a call of vehicle damage that had occurred during the night of March 8 and the morning of March 9 at Lane Court in Warman. The driver’s side window of a Honda Prelude had been smashed . The matter is believed to be the result of a dispute between a group of youths. The investigation led to a suspect being identified and charges are pending. GRANDORA B&E On March 13 Warman RCMP received a report of break and enter at a rural residence near Grandora which involved the theft of a variety of electronics, clothes and firearms, which occurred between the 5th and 12th of March. As a result of an investigation a search warrant was executed at a residence in Asquith. Much of the property reported stolen in the breakin was recovered, including many of the firearms. One 17 year old male was arrested and charged with one count of break and enter and one count of breaching an under-

taking. The youth is scheduled to appear in Saskatoon Youth Court next month.

YOUTH INCIDENT On March 13, during a noon hour school patrol, a Warman RCMP officer observed a youth, who had been previously expelled from the school property, had returned. The youth was asked to leave but he starting screaming and swearing and started to throw things. The youth acted out and was causing a disturbance and was arrested. He was then released to his parents in accordance to the Youth Criminal Justice Act. FARM VANDALISM Sometime during the night of March 13, damage was done to a tractor in a farm yard in the Corman Park District. The windows were broken, gear shift damaged, interior was ripped and the tires had been slashed. No other damage noted in the yard.

Competitive divisions include “All-Star Pom”, “School Pom”, “All-Star Group/Partner”, “School Group/Partner”, “All-Star Stunt” and “School Stunt”. Age groups range from five years to university-age students. There is also a “special needs” category for competitors aged five and up. Coming on the heels of the massive Warman Cheer Classic, the provincial championships illustrate the strength of the sport in the community, according to Warman High School principal Michael Collins.

SCHOOL & COMMUNITY “The Warman Cheer Classic is probably the largest event that we host at the school throughout the year, bar none,” said Collins in an interview March 15. “We had no idea when we started that it would get this big.” Collins said the event grew “exponentially” because of the efforts of the organizers and volunteers. He credited Susan Bayne, Edith Arthur and Leslie Stevenson with building a solid foundation for the event, which began in 2007. “The school staff, the ” cheerleading parents, and the kids themselves all help out, and we certainly couldn’t do it without them,” said Collins. “The idea, right from the very beginning, was to do a good job of making people feel welcome and making sure the logistics were all taken care of. That has always been a priority. We decided if we’re going to do this, we were going to do it well, and I think that is why it has grown to the extent that it has, because people love coming back here. They appreciate the experience.” Collins said it’s a big event school, and a great ONE for IN the THE event for the community of Warman and the region as a T CANCER. whole. l 1 888 939-3333 “When you get that many people coming from across Saskatchewan, and from Alr History berta and Manitoba, they get

to see what Warman is all about, and we can really showcase our community,” he said. He noted that the Cheer Classic is attracting the calibre of competition that regularly attends major events in Edmonton and Vancouver. He said while the event could conceivably attract another 400 competitors, that would likely be the maximum the WHS gym could handle. Fortunately, he noted, the multi-purpose field house facility at the Legends Centre is scheduled to open in the fall of 2013, and that could allow the event to expand even bigger. “If we get to that stage then it would actually rival those big events in Alberta and BC,” said Collins. He said while the school cheerleaders are an integral part of the football and basketball events at the school, cheerleading is no longer just a “sideline” activity. “It’s very much a sport in its own right,” he said. “It encompasses gymnastics, dance and there is a very physical component to it. You have to be strong to compete at the level these kids are.” Collins said cheerleading is one of many athletic activities the school encourages. “We see it as an activity where you get 60-plus kids involved in a positive thing in the school, and more than a hundred kids involved in the community cheerleading club,” he said. “When you have kids involved in activities in school and outside of school, there is a lot less opportunity for them to get into things that aren’t positive. Kids involved in sports and clubs do better academically, they have better peer relationships and they have better relationships at home.”

ACCESSIBLE SPORTS While the Cheer Classic is one of three major fundraising events at WHS, Collins said its primary focus is the cheerleading competition itself. “For us it was never about the fundraising,” he said. “It was always about providing an opportunity for our kids to perform. It’s always been about that, and I don’t think that piece will ever change.” Is there money that comes in because of the magnitude 2.25” “Absolutely,” x 4.75” of the event? he

confirmed. “But we also have a number of big activities that we run at Warman High School, and those events involve all the students. We have a big magazine sales campaign in the fall that generates many thousands of dollars, and we have a community fun night run by the student representative council that also raises thousands of dollars.” The funds generated at these events are put back into the school’s sports and cultural programs, noted Collins. “Any student who plays a sport or is in a club here at Warman High School pays nothing extra to be part of that activity,” he said. “We are the anomaly within our school division and many school divisions across the province. Our kids pay nothing and we have really worked hard for it to be that way because we never wanted to have a situation where a kid can’t play because money is any issue. They’re not charged for uniforms, for referee fees or transportation. When they travel, they pay for their meals and lodging but that’s it. All their other expenses are paid for.”

he said. “This year we have six teams. We’ve also introduced junior and senior wrestling this year, and created an Outdoor Education Club that teaches kids outdoor skills like orienteering and snowshoeing.” With an enrolment of 800 students in Grades 6 through 12, WHS is one of the largest high schools in the Saskatoon region. Collins said it’s important to make the best use of the facilities so both the school and the larger community benefit.

BREAK-EVEN THE GOAL Collins estimates the school raises about $30,000 annually to cover those costs. “We fundraise as we go along,” he said. “We try to cover our expenses, and that’s why we charge admission at some of our events. Referee fees alone, at a weekend basketball tournament, can be as much as $1500.” Even with increasing costs every year, Collins said the school is expanding the number and variety of sports and clubs. “We will be increasing the number of basketball teams next year to eight teams,”

Chiefs grab lead in PJHL series Chiefs 4 Quakers 3 (OT) By TERRY PUGH

D

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

elisle Chiefs captain Russ Schneider scored the biggest goal of his hockey career fifteen seconds into overtime last Saturday. Schneider scored the game-winner as the Chiefs downed the Saskatoon Quakers 4-3 in extra time in front of one of the biggest crowds of the season in the Delisle Arena on Saturday, March 17. With the win, the Chiefs grabbed a 2 games to 1 lead in the Prairie Junior Hockey League (PJHL) North Division final playoff series. But it wasn’t easy. The Chiefs came close to snatching defeat from the jaws of victory after allowing a 3 goal lead to slip away because of undisciplined penalties. The Quakers, meanwhile, came close to beating the odds and stealing a game they weren’t even in for the first thirty minutes.

Delisle owned the momentum of the game for the first two periods. Justin Kerr put the Delisle team out in front midway through the first period on a low shot that beat Quakers’ netminder Blair Miskolczi. The quick start was part of the Chiefs’ successful game plan, and the home team outshot the visitors 11-2 in the opening frame. Stacy Campbell and Andre Lalonde added two more goals for Delisle in the second, and their goaltender, Joel Adams, turned away everything that came his way. But in the third, the Quakers found success on the power play when they started putting pucks to the net. Stefan Serack accounted for two of those, while Chad Tichkowsky added another. The shots at the end of the game were almost even for both sides. With the score tied 3-3 heading into overtime, it looked like the Quakers had the momentum. But on the opening faceoff, the Chiefs big line of Schneider, Eric Ditto and

Paul Sonntag forced the play into the Quakers zone. Schneider pounced on a rebound in the slot and rifled a wrist shot past Miskolczi. The red light had hardly gone off before the Chiefs’ bench emptied and Schneider was mobbed by his celebrating teammates as they flooded onto the ice. “That goal, I think, was the turning point of the year for our club,” said Chiefs coach Dave Norris. “We had the game in control and we let it go, but to come back and not let that one slip was huge for us. Absolutely huge.” Norris said if the game had gone the other way, it would have been very deflating. “That would have been tough to recover from,” he admitted. “But with this win, we’ve definitely got the momentum on our side.”

Delisle Bruins lead Midget B series The Delisle Bruins Midget team beat Rosetown 5-3 on Saturday, March 17 in Rosetown. The win gives the Bruins the lead heading into the second game of the provincial Midget B hockey playoff series, which is scheduled for the Delisle Arena on Saturday, March 24. Game time is 8:00 pm. The Delisle Midget team advanced to the provincial final series after defeating Arborfield, Nipawin, Tisdale and Melfort in successive series.

Schneider said the brief team meeting at the bench right before the overtime period focused on strategy. “We just said we’re going to get pucks on net, and that’s what I was doing,” said Schneider after the game. “The puck was in the slot and I just kind of threw it on net, and it just happened to go in.” Schneider said this series is the toughest the Chiefs have been through this season. “The Quakers are playing so good right now, coming out of their series where they beat the Royals, they’re at the top of their game, so anytime we get a chance to bury them we need to take advantage of that opportunity,” he said. Justin Kerr, who scored the opening goal for the Chiefs, said getting off to a quick start is a game plan that’s worked well for the team all year. “We work hard to get that first goal,” he said. “You get the momentum going right off the hop and everyone feeds on that.”

The Chiefs and Quakers tangled on Tuesday, March 20 in Game 4 of the series at Harold Latrace Arena in Saskatoon following the Gazette press deadline. Game 5 will be played at Delisle Arena on Friday, March 23 at 8:00 pm. Game 6, if necessary, is Sunday, March 25 at Latrace, while Game 7, if needed, is Tuesday, March 27 at 8:00 pm in Delisle.

Sask Valley Vipers bounce back against Northeast Wolfpack By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

S

o now it all comes down to a best-of-one series. The Sask Valley Diamond Pharmacy Vipers rallied back from a disappointing 2-1 loss in the opening game of their playoff series, winning the second game 5-3 in Melfort last Saturday and setting the stage for a final showdown back on home ice in Warman. The third game was played Tuesday, March 20 at the Legends Centre, following the Gazette press deadline. The winner of the series takes on the South Division champion for the provincial Bantam AA title. Frustrated by the Wolfpack’s strong defense in Game 1, the Vipers found a way to crack Northeast goaltender Nike Amundrud’s armour in Game 2. Sask Valley’s Ryan Rothenburger accounted for the first two goals, both in the first period. Terrell Draude and Day Liin Smallchild added two more in the second, and Evan Fiala notched one in the third frame. Scoring for the Wolfpack were Nik Shumlanski and Zac Paziuk with a pair. Vipers goaltender Connor Ingram was solid in net, turning aside 28 shots. The Vipers needed to bounce back in the second game to keep the series going. Vipers head coach Shaun Priel was confident following the

disappointing loss in Game 1. “We just didn’t compete as hard as we needed to” in the opening game, Priel said after the initial loss. “As you go further along into the playoffs and you play better teams, every mistake you make is magnified. So one small mistake against a weaker team doesn’t result in a goal, but one small mistake against a team like this, and the puck goes in the net against you.” Priel said the team had to “tighten up” its game and improve its defense while figuring out a way to get pucks onto the opposing team’s net. “It’s a little adversity,” Priel noted. “I told the kids it’s a character test. Bring your character and we’ll see what you’re made of. We have good kids, and I think they’ll rise to the challenge.” Judging by the final result of Game 2 in Melfort last weekend, they did exactly that.

T

eams from the greater Saskatoon region are taking part in the annual run-up to Hoopla, the provincial high school basketball championships. The March 1617 weekend saw several teams compete in Regional tournaments, vying for the right to advance to Provincials.

1A BOYS Borden travelled to Regina to compete against Harvest City Christian Academy (HCCA) of Regina on March 16. Borden lost that game 8035, ending their Provincial hopes. Borden then played L’Ecole canadienne-francaise of Saskatoon, but lost that game 47-36, finishing fourth at the tournament. Hepburn travelled to Herbert for their Regional playoff. Hepburn lost their first game, falling 81-51 to Chief Poundmaker School of Cutknife. Hepburn won their second game 58-44 over Southey, finishing third at Regionals, but out of Provincials. Sturgis, HCCA, Herbert, and Craik will be playing for the Provincial title. 1A GIRLS Hepburn travelled to Foam Lake for their Regional playoff. Hepburn lost their first game to Frontier 74-47, ending their Provincial hopes. Hepburn defeated Rockglen 5029 in their second game, to finish in third place. Kenaston, Kinistino, Foam Lake, and Lake Lenore will compete at Provincials. 2A BOYS Rosthern Junior College (RJC) was at Melfort for their Regional matches. RJC defeated Maidstone 83-33 in their first game, then defeated Kinistino 69-44 in their second game to win the Regional title. Valley Christian Academy (VCA) in Osler hosted their

Regional tournament. VCA defeated Regina Western Christian 83-53 in their first game. VCA beat Nakoda Oyade Education Centre (NOEC) of Carry the Kettle First Nation near Sintaluta 74-62 to claim the Regional title. RJC, VCA, Regina Christian School, and the Christian Centre Academy of Saskatoon will be playing for the Provincial title.

2A GIRLS Langham was in Southey for their Regional tournament. Langham lost 38-30 against LCBI in their first game. Langham also lost their second match, 64-41, to Kelvington to finish fourth at the tournament. VCA in Osler travelled to Meath Park for their Regional playoff. VCA won their first game 74-50 over Norquay, but lost their second game to Meath Park, 57-50. VCA finished second at the tournament, but out of Provincials. Lashburn, Southey, Wilkie, and Meath Park will compete at Provincials. 3A BOYS The Clavet Cougars, last year’s Provincial champion, hosted their Regional tournament, hosting Se Se Wa Hum of Big River First Nations near Victoire, Balcarres, and Biggar. Clavet defeated the Se Se Wa Hum Spirits 92-71 in their first game, getting off to a quick start with a basket off the opening tip. The Cougars racked up an 8-0 lead before the Spirits sank a basket in the first quarter. Clavet led 29-11 at the end of the quarter and the Spirits never recovered. Clavet coach Paul McTavish was impressed with the Spirits. “I thought they did a great job,” he said. “Their outside shooting was really impressive.” McTavish was happy with the win, but thought his team could use some improvement. “I thought we had a really good start with lots of energy, but we had some lulls in the second and fourth quarters and you can’t have those if you are going to win games,” he explained. Clavet then went on to defeat Biggar 102-66 to claim the Regional title. “Our ultimate goal was to go to Provincials,” McTavish said. “We’ve prepared for that

all season. McTavish wouldn’t guarantee another Provincial title, saying that “in 3A all the teams at the top are quite good, there’s not much separating them.” Dalmeny was in Birch Hills for their Regional tournament. Dalmeny defeated Unity 125-38 in their first game. Dalmeny’s second game was a much closer match, with Dalmeny edging out Birch Hills 77-76 in the final. Clavet, Dalmeny, Moosomin, and Hudson Bay will compete for the Provincial title.

3A GIRLS Clavet was in Regina for their Regional competition. Clavet won their first game against Birch Hills 55-46, before losing 55-38 to the Regina Christian School. Clavet finished second at Regionals, out of the running for Provincials. Lumsden, Regina Christian School, Indian Head, and Caronport will be at Provincials. 4A BOYS Warman was in Yorkton for their Regional competition. Warman lost 77-56 to Miller Comprehensive High School in Regina in their first game, before defeating Weyburn 77-71 in their second game. Warman finished third at Regionals, not high enough to make it to Provincials. Moose Jaw Central Collegiate, Yorkton Regional High School, Meadow Lake, and North Battleford Comprehensive High School (NBCHS) will be competing for the Provincial title. 4A GIRLS Warman was in Prince Albert for Regionals. Warman lost 72-58 to Albert E. Peacock Collegiate (AEPC) in Moose Jaw in their first game, but defeated John Paul II Collegiate (JPII) in North Battleford 70-32 in their second game. Warman finished third at Regionals, but out of the running for Provincials. NBCHS, AEPC, Humboldt Collegiate Institute (HCI), and Athol Murray College of Notre Dame will be competing at Provincials. Hoopla 2012 will take place in Regina March 22-24 with games at the University of Regina and Campbell Collegiate.

UNIVERSITY CUP

Continued from Page 22

the hospitality of our home province.” Kook is very pleased that PotashCorp wanted to jump on board with this exciting event for the City of Saskatoon, province of Saskatchewan and the University of Saskatchewan campus. “The PotashCorp University Cup host committee, Huskie Athletics and the University of Saskatchewan are very grateful for this contribution from PotashCorp,” said Kook. “The generosity they’ve shown to the University over the years has made them a leader in the Saskatoon community and in support of University athletics and the student-athletes. PotashCorp’s title sponsorship raises the bar in terms of legacy and impact this world-class men’s hockey event will leave on Saskatoon and Saskatchewan

as a province.” PotashCorp has contributed more than $11-million dollars to the University of Saskatchewan in the past. In 1998 the company contributed $5 million to create the PotashCorp Centre at the Edwards School of Business, as well as another $5 million to the University in 2005 for upgrades to Griffiths Stadium in PotashCorp Park to help Huskie Athletics host the 2006 Vanier Cup. The corporation has also gifted $300,000 to Huskie Athletics in the last two seasons to help with the student-athlete experience for each of the 15 CIS athletic teams at the University.

Weekly Horoscopes CAPRICORN Stand back, Capricorn. Opportunities are headed your way. Take advantage of every last one. Your home begins to resemble a closet.

VIRGO It is what it is, Virgo. No amount of fussing is going to make the situation better, so leave it be. You have much bigger fish to fry.

AQUARIUS Organization is key to pulling off a project. Get all of your Ps and Qs in order and work through the process in stages. A friend makes a keen observation. Be receptive, Aquarius.

LIBRA You need to break the ice, Libra, but be careful you don’t go overboard and say something that could turn into a deal breaker.

PISCES All is fair in love and war, Pisces. You took a chance and you lost. Better luck next time. A favor is returned when you least expect it. ARIES Two wrongs do not make a right. Admit what you did, Aries, and prepare to pay the price. Weekend adventures put everyone in high spirits. TAURUS Force your way in, Taurus, and you will regret it. Be patient, wait your turn and it will come in time. The web of deception builds at work. GEMINI Creative endeavors take off with a special purchase. Grab some friends and make a party of it, Gemini. The fix for an auto dilemma is clear. CANCER Blink, and you’ll miss it for sure, Cancer. That’s how small the gesture will be, but at least an effort was made. Be grateful, and watch as it is paid forward. LEO Don’t jump to conclusions, Leo. What you see is not what you’ll get. You’re only in the initial stages of planning. Give the idea time to flesh out before you critique it.

SCORPIO Craft ideas abound. Make a day of it with your family, Scorpio, and get the scoop on what you’ve been missing. A brave face makes an earnest plea. SAGITTARIUS Stop it, Sagittarius! You’ve devoted way too many hours to a project that clearly wasn’t meant to be. Can it and move on to something more fruitful.

BETHANY COLLEGE lead the Eagles squad. On the men’s side, The Hardest Shot Award was given to Tim Falk, while The Golden Boot Award for most goals was given to Eagles’ striker Joel Jantzen. Most Sportsmanlike Player Awards were given to Spencer Epp of the Eagles, and Ryan Bushman of the Alumni Team 1 (Pre2001).

ALUMNI HOCKEY On to the Alumni Hockey Tournament, where the games included tight match-ups between four teams – the Bethany Eagles, and three very good alumni teams made up of players from the past couple of decades. Friday night saw all four teams in action, with Alumni Team 4 (Pre-2000) defeating Alumni Team 3 (2000-2005) by a single goal. The Bethany Eagles matched up against Alumni Team 2 (2006-2011), and fell 3-2 to the alumni. Saturday dawned with the arena already hopping, as games were underway early. By the early afternoon, it became clear that Alumni Team 2 and Alumni Team 4 were the teams to beat, and as these two teams met in the finals, it would be a tight game. However, in the end, the Pre2000 Alumni Team claimed victory, and outscored their younger rivals by a score of 8-3, with Brent Block and Gil Dueck leading the scoring. BETHANY KITCHEN As always, the Alumni tournament players were given a break on Saturday morning to enjoy a brunch together. Rob Neufeld presented a brief update on the Bethany Kitchen

WARMAN and India. This accomplishment is thanks to the work of our farmers and ranchers, who are vital to the Saskatchewan Advantage we all enjoy. And, last but definitely not least, Canada’s currently longest-serving provincial Minister of Agriculture announced at SARM that he will soon be stepping down from his position. Bob Bjornerud told delegates that he asked the Premier to leave Cabinet in the next shuffle, expected this summer. Bob Bjornerud was first elected in 1995 and has served the province as Agriculture Minister since the 2007 election. He has been a strong voice for Saskatchewan producers and will be missed.

Open house SaskPower transmission line projects In order to address the electrical capacity and reliability issues in and around Saskatoon as well as to help meet the growing electrical needs of Saskatchewan’s potash industry, SaskPower is proposing to construct a new switching station and substation north of Saskatoon, a new switching station northeast of Saskatoon in the Aberdeen area, a new transmission line connecting these two stations and a new transmission line from the new Aberdeen Switching Station to the existing Wolverine Switching Station. Initial consultations started in March of 2011 and environmental and other studies were completed from May through September. Based on the results of these studies and input received from landowners, elected officials and other stakeholders, preferred routes have now been selected for these new transmission lines. SaskPower invites anyone interested in these projects to participate in the next round of consultations by attending one of the following open house information sessions. For additional information, please call SaskPower Environmental Programs at 1 800-667-4749.

Foibles & FOlly

Eccentric characters populate student drama club comedy By TERRY PUGH

F

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

or a group of homeschool students in the Prairie Spirit School Division (PSSD), the highlight of their academic year is just a few days away. And no, summer holidays aren’t coming early. Friday, March 30 is opening night for their new production, a madcap comedy called “Foibles and Folly.” After weeks of rehearsals, they’ll finally get to step out on stage at the Brian King Centre in Warman and show their stuff. “It’s pretty exciting,” said Shawna Epp, one of the young cast members. “There’s a few butterflies, but we’ve got our lines and our cues down pretty good now, and we’re ready to go.” The play, which runs Friday, March 30 and Saturday, March 31 at 7:00 pm both nights, features a cast of eccentric characters and a fast-moving plot. It also has a message about the importance of accepting others as they come, even if they’re a little off-beat. After all, nobody’s perfect. The play’s characters include two eccentric, absentminded scientists, a teenage girl with a bad attitude but

a heart of gold, a nearsighted busybody, triplets who get their words muddled up, a paranoid retired spy, and an eccentric gentleman who walks an imaginary dog. For the young actors, who range in age from 10 to 19 years, mounting a live theatre production is a chance to try something completely different. “I like it because you get to become another person,” said Michelle Giesbrecht, who portrays a movie-star wannabe in the play. “My character is the opposite of my own personality. She’s a big snob who’s full of herself, so it’s kind of cool to step into another character and pretend to be someone else.” This marks the fourth annual production for the drama club, which consists of students and parents within the school division surrounding Saskatoon. It provides an opportunity for the families to work together on a creative project and showcase their efforts to the larger community. “It’s nice when we all work together,” said Taylor Martin, a young cast member who has been in all three plays so far. “We know each other pretty well after doing those other plays together, so

when we get together to rehearse, we have a lot of fun and it’s a good experience.” Nicholas Gilbey said being part of the acting club is both challenging and rewarding. “Everybody supports each other,” he said. “We see each other once or twice a week at rehearsals, but also at other activities that we do as home-schoolers. There’s actually a big home-school community, and we take part in a lot of things.” The mothers of the cast members are also a big part of the production. The play is directed by Lori Giesbrecht, Teena Ens is stage manager, Shelley Gilbey is the producer and responsible for the sound and music, Julie Williams did the set design. The lights are handled by Arlene Epp and Ivy Werner. Werner is also the costume consultant. Lynn Martin is coordinating the dessert refreshments for both performances. Karen Harder is treasurer and responsible for ticket sales while Catherine Webster is the publicist. Tickets for the performances are $5/person (available at the door both nights) and can also be reserved by calling Karen Harder at 2392008.

Acclaimed Canadian novelist speaks at Bethany College in Hepburn By DARLENE DYCK

Communications Co-ordinator Bethany College

R

udy Wiebe, the internationally acclaimed novelist, was on the campus of Bethany College on Friday, March 2, to give a reading of one of his short stories to the student body. Wiebe, a senior and respected voice in Canadian literature, is a two-time winner of the Governor General’s Literary Award, and a member of the Order of Canada. He is a native of Saskatchewan, having been born in Fairholme, north of the Battlefords, but has spent

most of his life and career in Edmonton, where he is Professor Emeritus in the University of Alberta’s Department of English. This was Wiebe’s first visit to the Bethany campus, though he noted that his older brother had studied at Bethany some 70 years previous, before taking up pastoral ministry in Pierceland, Sask. This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of Wiebe’s first novel, Peace Shall Destroy Many. Much of his writing centres on life in the rugged and beautiful prairie landscape, and in particular, on the often forgotten voices and ex-

periences of the First Nations. Wiebe chose, for this reading at Bethany, to tell the amazing story of Broken Arm, or Chief Maskepetoon, sometimes referred to as the Gandhi of the prairies. Broken Arm was a nineteenth century chief who discovered through personal experience that peace-making, in the form of reconciliation with enemies, is far more potent than warfare. The purpose of Wiebe’s visit to Bethany was to build some awareness of the aboriginal history of the prairies, as one way of preparing students for this summer’s Truth and Reconciliation

Commission gatherings in Saskatoon (June 21-24). The event will be a significant one on the national stage, and Bethany wants its students to know about it and, if possible, become involved. A second event on campus, planned for Monday, March 12, will welcome speakers from both Mennonite Central Committee and the Office of the Treaty Commissioner for presentations. At the end of his reading, Wiebe presented Bethany College with a signed copy of his Collected Stories, 19552010, from which the narrative of Broken Arm was taken. In response, Bethany faculty member Randy

Governor-General’s Literary Award winner Rudy Wiebe did a reading from one of his short stories. (Photo submitted by Darlene Dyck, Bethany College)

ebecca Grambo holds an immaculately preserved vintage camera in her hands. She clicks the shutter. After all these years, it still works perfectly. By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

It’s so well-made that even after taking literally thousands of photos over the decades, it’s just as dependable as ever - ready to capture whatever images it sees through its crystal-clear lens. Those images may well have ranged from sentimental and mundane to outright disconcerting. “This is a Kodak camera that was made in 1937 in Stuttgart, Germany,” explains Grambo, an awardwinning author and photographer from Warman. “Just think for a minute of what was going on in Germany in 1937. That was when Sudetentland was re-annexed by Hitler. It was the time of ‘Krystallnacht’, and the rounding up of Jews and political prisoners and herding them onto trains bound for concentration camps. “Yet most people in Germany at that time were just trying to continue their normal lives,” she added. “Cameras were very popular with Germans and they used them a lot. You wonder what kind of pictures this camera may have taken. ” The lens likely recorded family gatherings, family vacations, birthdays, weddings, and funerals. Even in a society as repressive as Germany in the 1930s, life went on, and the camera was a well-used witness to that society – eerily calm on the surface, but so laden with violence and turmoil that it was ready to explode. Few people realized at that time the full horror of the world war that was to come. Decades later, the most mundane images from that time and place seem extraordinary. CAMERA WAS A PIVOTAL INVENTION The invention of the camera marked a watershed moment for humanity.

In 1827, Joseph Nicephore Niepce used a pinhole camera to record the first photographic image. Twelve years later, in 1839, another Frenchman, Louis Daguerre, developed the first practical method of photography - the “daguerreotype”. Improvements in photographic methods improved through the late 19th century, and by 1889, George Eastman invented film coated with a cellulose nitrate base that could be rolled onto spools. The film could be loaded into a box camera that was relatively inexpensive to manufacture. Mass-produced box cameras suddenly gave people the ability to reproduce images. No longer did they have to rely solely on paintings and drawings to accurately depict the world around them. Those first cameras were crude and clumsy, but it didn’t take too many years before the stunning craftsmanship of the camera itself began to rival the technology inside the box. Some of the most beautifully constructed cameras are well over a hundred years old. Not only do they look like valuable pieces of art, the intricate shutter mechanisms and aperture openings often still work perfectly.

APPEAL OF THE OBSOLETE Now, in the age of digital cameras, the old-fashioned film cameras have become obsolete. But that doesn’t mean they’re destined for the dumpster. Not when there are

WITNESS to history

Vintage cameras have stories to tell

From left to right: Folding cameras from the 1920s, an aerial reconnaissance camera used in a Lancaster Bomber, an antique slide projector, and Brownies and stereo camera from the 1930s so many antique hunters and vintage camera collectors just waiting to snap them up. Rebecca Grambo is happy to oblige. She is selling – online – a massive collection of vintage cameras of all sizes and shapes - ranging in age from over 100 years old to fairly recent models. The cameras were all part of the estate of a collector who passed away, and Grambo volunteered to take on the task of finding homes for all the articles because the collector’s surviving family members had neither the expertise nor the inclincation to tackle the job. An auction wasn’t practical, given the sheer size of the collection and the niche market for the cameras. Online sales seemed the perfect solution. While some of the more unique cameras may find their way into museums, most are going to private nostalgia buffs. “There’s nothing in this collection that’s worth a million dollars or anything like that,” said Grambo in an interview. “But each one is unique in its own way, and someone, somewhere, can make use of them.” For the past year, Grambo has been putting individual items for sale online, one at a time. With an estimated 2,000 items in the collection,

Where did all those cameras come from, anyway? What do you do with a house full of old cameras? That was the question Ken Ambler asked himself when he went to clean out his late brother Vern’s place on an acreage east of Saskatoon. Vern Ambler, it turns out, was really fascinated with cameras of all kinds, and he collected them at auctions, garage sales, and all sorts of places. No camera was too commonplace or too unusual for his taste. He collected everything he could get his hands on. But when he passed away about a year ago, he left behind a house that was literally packed to the rafters with boxes and boxes full of hundreds of cameras, projectors, and darkroom equipment. It was a pretty daunting task. Ken Ambler enlisted the help of Rebecca Grambo, an author and photographer from Warman, to get his late brother’s collection out to a new generation of collectors. Rebecca Grambo and her husband, Glen, packed up truckloads of cameras and moved them all to their place in Warman, where the articles are sorted, labelled, cleaned, catalogued and photographed. For the past 18 months, Grambo has been selling selected items online at www.etsy. com/shop/PastAndPresence. Buyers from as far away as Japan, Europe and Australia have scooped up rare and unusual items. Some people buy cameras that remind them of their childhood, while others are using them for their original purpose - they like the feel of an old-school manual film camera in their hands. Shooting film has experienced a bit of a resurgence in recent years, even as digital cameras become more refined. “People have all kinds of different reasons for wanting these pieces of history,” said Grambo. “They have created beautiful pictures in their time, and many of them are simply beauitfully-crafted works of art in and of themselves.”

the turn of the 20th century. Another set of storage boxes holds 1930s ‘artdeco’ Brownie box cameras in flashy colours. There is a camera with twin lenses that was used for making homemade stereoscope slides. There is also a motley collection of camera-related bric-a-brac: a 1950s kit for making home-made titles for 8mm home movies; a 19th century “flash powder and paper” apparatus used by old-time studio photographers. “I’m pretty sure it’s not explosive, but then, I haven’t actually tried it,” Grambo admitted. Some of the most interesting items are movie cameras of all sorts from hand-wound cameras to professional 16 mm units. But some of the most visually appealing cameras are from the 1920s. The folding lenses collapse into the main body of the camera. When opened, the intricate polished metal parts and rich woodgrain and velvet interior of the camera are breathtaking. Since she began cataloguing and selling the cameras, Grambo has learned a lot about the history of cameras and photography. “I have had my eyes opened to the human story behind a lot of these cameras,” she concluded. “It’s also amazing how many different ways we’ve come up with to take photographs over the years. Cameras will always be with us in one form or another. It’s nice to have some of the old ones around as a reminder of what people used in the past.”

Local climbers attempt to reach unconquered mountain peak A group of Saskatchewan climbers are attempting to do what no one has done before – reach the summit of Mount Saskatchewan. The 11,483 foot peak, located in the Centennial Range in the Yukon, was one of 12 mountains named after Canada’s provinces and territories in 1967 to celebrate the country’s 100th birthday. In July 1967, four-person teams attempted to climb all the mountains, and all were summited, except for Mount Saskatchewan and Mount Manitoba. While Manitoba was later summited, Saskatchewan’s peak remains unconquered. That’s where Steve Whittington, Jeff Dmytrowich, Sam Unger and Wren Rabut come in. On May 18 the fourman team, all members of the Alpine Club of Canada, is travelling to Whitehorse then onto Kluane National Park and Reserve to begin their attempt on Mount Saskatchewan. Whittington, the expedition leader, says their motive for attempting this historic climb is simple: it’s never been done. “It’s a challenge,” he says. “And while none of us are football fans, we feel it’s something we can do for Saskatchewan. The Alpine Club of Canada Saskatchewan section feels that this is unfinished business. It’s a point of pride – Mount Saskatchewan is the only summit in the Centennial Range left unclimbed.” Whittington, who has more than 40 mountain summits to his name, including Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount McKinley, hand-picked this team to join him on the ascent. While all of them are experienced climbers, they’ve

been doing specific skills training for three months to tackle what he calls “a serious mountain.” “It’s mean looking – one face is a 3,000 foot headwall,” Whittington says. “Part of the difficulty is that there is no info on how to climb it. But I think if we have good weather, we’ll do it. This is the

strongest team I’ve ever been on.” And while reaching the summit would be an accomplishment for the Alpine Club and the province, Whittington says it’s personal for the team. “It’s a challenge for us as mountaineers. But when you’re a team, it’s more than

just climbing. The bond you have with your team is a bond for life, because you’re depending on other people to take care of you if things go wrong. It’s not about the summit but the journey to the top.” To help raise funds for their expedition, which will cost about $25,000, the group

is holding a Tall Tales Silent Auction Night on Sat. April 21 at Joos Yoga Events Studio, #38- 23rd St East in Saskatoon. Team members will be giving presentations on their previous climbing experiences, from Alaska to the Himalaya. On May 5 the team will hold a climb-a-thon at Grip

It Climbing, 501 23rd St W, Saskatoon. They’ll climb the height of Mount Saskatchewan, meaning each person will do 59 laps of the climbing wall. For more information on the climb, info on fundraiser tickets or to give your support, find them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/MountSaskatchewanClimb.

Highways Dept. launches new mobile, YouTube sites The Highway Hotline launched its new mobile website for smart phones on Monday, giving motorists another convenient way to check road conditions. “This launch is another step in our recent work to upgrade Saskatchewan’s road information system to better inform all motorists before they travel on our highways to help them plan safer trips,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Jim Reiter said. “The new mobile website is handy if you’re out and about and need to know what’s on the road before driving home.” The mobile website allows motorists to select interactive maps of Saskatchewan areas and click on specific highway segments for conditions, which are also indicated by a colour-coded legend. A text report feature also allows motorists to check road conditions or the status of ferries. The Highway Hotline has also launched its new web feeds. This service lets motorists pick the highways and ferries they want to know about and have information updates sent directly to their computers. “It’s a good tool if you want to know about every condition on your specific morning and evening highway commuter route, if it changes throughout the day,” Reiter said. Links to the mobile website and web feeds can be found on the main Highway Hotline webpage at www.highways.gov. sk.ca/road-conditions/, along with other news access points introduced this winter, such as the upgraded map for high bandwidth users, highway cameras and Twitter account. Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure also officially debuted its YouTube channel Monday. Videos on the channel will be used to complement existing content on the Highway Hotline page on Facebook and the ministry’s website to provide public education and safety information.
