Firefighters from Warman, Osler and Dalmeny used a cool, rainy Saturday morning to train as a group by burning an abandoned barn at a farm site just west of the Clarkboro Ferry on Highway 305. In less than 30-minutes the structure was completely burned to the ground and firefighters spent another six hours dousing hot spots.

Semi collides with train, driver sustains minor injuries A gravel truck driver is lucky to be alive after his rig collided with a train southeast of Saskatoon last week. According to the Saskatoon RCMP, the accident took place just off Highway 16 on Freebourne Road at about 8:30 a.m.

April 25. MD Ambulance responded to the accident. The 30-year-old male operator of the semi-trailer was transported to hospital with minor injuries. There were no other people injured in the crash.

“There is extensive damage to both the semi and the train,” stated MD Ambulance spokesperson Troy Davies following the mishap. “Everyone is extremely lucky that there was no one significantly injured”.

Hague Ferry opens for the season The Hague Ferry is back in business for the 2012 season. The vessel was launched last week and, despite soft, muddy landing areas on both sides of the South Saskatchewan River, the ferry is able to carry normal loads.

The Clarkboro Ferry, meanwhile, is able to carry light loads only. The Clarkboro Ferry loads are restricted to 18,000 kilograms, according to the Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure website.

Valley Christian Academy expanding class facilities By TERRY PUGH

alley Christian Academy (VCA), a K-12 school in Osler, is embarking on a $2 million expansion to its facilities. A fundraising supper at the school on Thursday, April 26 kicked off the campaign to upgrade the academic and vocational arts classrooms. “We’re looking to replace our satellite building, and also add a big industrial arts area to the school,” explained Wes Wahl, chair of the VCA Board. In an interview while tending one of several barbecues at the fundraising supper, Wahl said the improvements are needed to accommodate students’ needs. “The satellite building has been here for about 25 years, and it was an older building when it was moved here, so it’s seen better days and it’s time to replace it,” he said. “It hous-

es two classrooms and and a small industrial arts classroom in the basement. It’s just too small and outdated for our current needs.” The new addition to the VCA building will be located on the south side of the facility near the large gymnasium-auditorium. Wahl said the new classrooms will be able to house classes of 26 students comfortably. “The old ones could only seat about 20 students in each class,” he said. While the enrollment at VCA stays relatively constant at about 350 students annually, there is an ongoing need to maintain and upgrade the facility. “We’re looking at improving our offerings in the vocational arts,” said Wahl. “That’s why we need to improve the industrial arts areas. We’ll be putting more emphasis on practical courses like carpentry and that sort of thing”

WING NIGHT ALL STEAK EAT RIBS NIGHT

Wahl said the VCA board hopes to have the final engineer’s blueprints for the expansion ready in about two weeks, and construction should start shortly after that. “Hopefully things will progress fairly rapidly over the summer,” he said. “We’re looking at opening the addition in time for the new school year in the fall. Our target date is September 13 to move in.” VCA first opened its doors in 1986 and is associated with the Prairie Spirit School Division. The school division hires and pays the teachers, while accommodating the Christian emphasis of the school in hiring of staff members. The school program follows the provincial curriculum interpreted from a Christian perspective. Students who meet the credit requirements of core curriculum graduate with a complete grade twelve standing from Saskatchewan Education.

Radisson museum receives cultural achievement award By TERRY PUGH

T

he Zion Museum in Radisson was presented with the Museum of the Year Award by the Rivers West District for Sport, Culture and Recreation at a special event in Unity last week. The privately-owned and operated museum in Radisson was nominated for the award by the Seniors Club in that community. The award was presented as part of an event honouring volunteers for outstanding achievements for sport, culture and recreation within the district. For Barb Cousins, who along with her husband Norman Heibert and their friend Kirk Maxwell, bought the former Zion United Church in Radisson several years ago with the intention of restoring and renovating the building and turning it into a museum, it was an unexpected thrill. “It was kind of overwhelming,” said Cousins in a phone interview April 26, the day after the awards presentation. “We weren’t expecting it, but it’s nice to have the museum recognized as a valuable part of the community.” Cousins said the three partners bought the building, which was built in 1905, after the United Church closed its

doors. They believed it was an integral part of the town’s heritage and they didn’t want to see it fall apart. They also shared a passion for collecting antiques and the church building offered a great place to put all that stuff. “It’s a completely private museum,” she said. “It’s right across from our house, and Kirk doesn’t live far away. We bought it with our own funds, and we run it out of our own pockets. We don’t get any government funding. We have a donation bucket that we reluctantly put there because people are always wanting to donate and we had to have something.” She said the trio did a lot of work to renovate the building when they first took it over. “We started with the ceiling, which was peeling,” she said. “Once we got that rectified, we worked on everything else.” The centerpiece of the museum is the church itself, along with many of the original artifacts donated by the congregation. “We have kept the sanctuary the way it was when the church was functioning,” she said. “We also have the pulpit and the pictures and some of the pews.” The museum is open Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sunday afternoon by appointment.

Program targets impaired drivers in Dalmeny By TERRY PUGH

T

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

he community of Dalmeny and its municipal police service are taking aim at impaired drivers. A program called “Report Impaired Drivers” (RID) was launched last November by Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI), the RCMP and the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SGLA). RID encourages the public to call 911 if they see a driver they suspect is impaired. The community of Dalmeny was among the first in the province to sign on to the program, and it’s definitely helped raise awareness in the area, says Constable Scott Rowe of the Dalmeny Police Service. “It’s a good program,” said Rowe in an interview. “Drugs and alcohol are still the leading factor in crashes, and it’s the kind of thing where people need to be constantly educated about the dangers of drinking and driving.” According to SGI, impaired

driving kills an average of 60 people in Saskatchewan every year. Another 800 people on average are injured across the province as a result of collisions related to impaired driving. “Basically the program encourages people to pull over and phone 9-1-1 if they see a driver that they suspect is impaired,” said Rowe. “Their call then becomes a priority, and police are dispatched to that area.” Rowe said most people are aware that they should call 911 in the event of a fire or medical emergency, but they may not realize that three-digit number is available to alert police to potential dangers like impaired drivers. “We’re trying to get impaired drivers off the road before a collision occurs,” said Rowe. “It’s a proactive program aimed at saving lives.” The RID program has the support of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and Students Against Drunk Driv-

If you see a driver that is possibly impaired:

ing (SADD). It originally started as a pilot program in Saskatoon in March, 2010 before expanding to Regina, Moose, Jaw, Prince Albert, Weyburn and Estevan. Last fall, when the program was launched province-wide, 300 impaired driving charges had been laid and 2,100 warning letters had been sent out to vehicle owners. Public awareness of the program has been growing ever since. Rowe said expanding the program into smaller communities like Dalmeny helps keep the message front and centre in people’s minds. “Basically the town council endorsed the program and we were issued signs that we post-

ed throughout the town and the main access roads leading into and out of the community,” said Rowe. He said if motorists observe people using their cell phones or texting while driving, they should also pull over and call 911. “Technically, a driver who’s texting is not physically impaired, but they are definitely distracted, and that’s just as dangerous,” he said. “Their ability to operate a motor vehicle is not at the level it needs to be. If they’re texting, they are usually trying to hide the fact, so they’re staring at their phone down on their lap, and by the time they look up and see what’s coming, it’s usually too late.”

Rural Sask. remembers NDP health

C O M M E N T A R Y

Are Albertans really paying for Quebec’s social programs?

It must frustrate rural people to no end to hear the NDP Opposition bemoan the state of health care under Premier Brad Wall’s government. Now, don’t get me wrong. Saskatchewan Party government health care coverage is something less than perfect. In fact, certain elements may be downright wrong-headed. The first problem is that we likely haven’t seen enough structural change – at least when it comes to the key elements that drive up health care costs. For starters, for all the fussing and fuming over the Essential Services Legislation that was deemed by the courts to be an infringement on the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the health sector hasn’t exactly done horribly under the Sask. Party government when it comes to wage increases. This is because one of the first orders of business of the new Saskatchewan Party government back in 2008 was to give the Saskatchewan Union of Nurses a 35-per-cent, fouryear increase. The decision set off a round of health care inflation (other health care unions thought it appropriate to demand excessive increases, as well) evident in provincial budgets since. More than 70 per cent of our $4.6-billion health budget goes to wages. Similarly, the Sask Party government has a penchant for building hospitals and nursing homes (not to mention the pending new Children’s Hospital in Saskatoon). Nor has the Sask. Party

By Michael Holden, Canada West Foundation

Student protests in Quebec have triggered a curious response from some observers. Appalled that Quebecers have the audacity to protest tuition fees rising from the lowest in the country to possibly the second-lowest, they opine that the only reason Quebec can afford such fees in the first place is on the back of the Alberta taxpayer. As the narrative goes, Quebec’s low tuition, $7-a-day daycare and other generous social programs are all being paid for by hard-working Albertans who could only dream of affording such luxuries themselves. This story appeals to Albertans convinced that Ottawa and Quebec are stealing our wealth, but this is simply not the case. Let’s start with the idea that Alberta sends money to Quebec. This is incorrect on two levels. First, Ottawa charges people the same taxes regardless of where they live and puts all the money into a big pot called general revenue. Assuming a balanced budget, all federal program spending, including on transfers like equalization, comes out of that same pot. As such, federal taxes raised in Quebec help fund farm subsidies in Alberta. Taxpaying New Brunswickers contribute to Employment Insurance payments in Saskatchewan. And yes, federal taxes raised in Alberta help pay for equalization in Quebec. Second is the mistaken belief that the Alberta government cuts a cheque to Ottawa to pay for equalization and other transfers. In fact, these are paid by federal taxpayers (including those in Alberta) with no involvement from the provincial government. Equalization does not affect the Alberta government’s bottom line. But at the same time, Alberta cannot therefore simply “opt out” of equalization. It is also untrue that equalization allows Quebec to afford services that are impossibly generous for Alberta. The equalization formula tells us that the Alberta government could collect twice as much revenue as Quebec (including its equalization payments) if both provinces had identical tax rates. In other words, Alberta could easily afford tuition rates lower than those in Quebec, and plenty more besides, if it was willing to pay for them. This brings us to another misunderstanding about equalization. Its purpose is not to ensure a uniform level of provincial government services across Canada, but rather to ensure that provinces have the ability to provide comparable services at comparable tax rates. Each province can choose how much—and on what—to spend, but they have to pay for those choices. Yes, Quebec has more generous social programs than Alberta. It also has taxes that most Albertans would consider appallingly high. But are we just confusing the issue? Do Albertans not contribute more to federal coffers compared to people living in other provinces? Of course we do. And Canadians across the country benefit from that contribution. But this is not the result of some elaborate plot to drain wealth out of the West and give it to welfare recipients in the East. It’s simply because our economy is strong. The “problem” is that wages and employment rates in Alberta are much higher than anywhere else in Canada. More of us have jobs and earn higher incomes, so we end up paying more in taxes. Can we eliminate this “injustice?” Sure. One option is to shut down some of our industries to bring economic output and unemployment rates closer to the national average. Alternatively, all Albertans could take a voluntary pay cut to bring our salaries in line with those of other Canadians. Or, we could ask the federal government to implement a special “Alberta” set of tax rates—so that we can pay lower taxes than all other Canadians to compensate us for being richer than the rest of the country. The bottom line is that Albertans contribute more to confederation because our economy is strong. Someone earning $100,000 pays more taxes than someone earning $50,000. Alberta is simply home to more 6-figure salaries. Because of that wealth, the Alberta government could afford to provide social services that would make Quebec’s seem miserly by comparison. But Albertans have chosen a different path. If Quebecers wish to keep tuition low, enjoy $7-a-day daycare while paying high taxes that risk discouraging economic growth, that’s their decision to make. Besides, would you want to trade places?

Provincial Politics

government really done much to eliminate unnecessary and costly bureaucracy – whether it be in the health ministry, the costly Saskatchewan Association of Health Organizations that negotiates with the unions or the health districts themselves that swallow up precious dollars on administration that could go to frontline care. Given these on-going and massive structural problems, attempts to save money through “lean” efficiencies may seem a drop in the bucket. In fact, the NDP Opposition noted in the assembly last week that $1.4 million has been spent on efficiency consultants whose work has allegedly produced six dollars saved for every dollar spent. (This, by the way, is the same ratio that the film industry says went back to the Saskatchewan economy from the provincial tax credit.) But while the NDP Opposition might be rather smug about the foibles of Sask. Party government health delivery, they seem to be forgetting a few important points. First, all of the above – including inflation-driving wage increases – happened under NDP governments, as well. If anything, the Sask. Party government in the last two budgets may be finally getting a handle on health care inflation. The NDP and health “experts”

tals and nursing homes in rural Saskatchewan and replace major facilities in North Battleford and Moose Jaw.) Sure, one can accurately say NDP government cuts in the early 1990s were necessary because of the Progressive Conservative debt. One can further argue Wall has lucked into good economic times and a health system already made leaner. However, rural Saskatchewan also now sees a government less obsessed with the principles of public health delivery and more interested in actual service delivery. And this reality makes the NDP criticism of Wall government health care a little hard to take.

Reader Opinions Petition to split RM not based on solid information I was not asked to sign the petition to divide Corman Park. Since I know something about economics, municipal finance, and effective economic and social development I might have made an informed decision and not signed. Since there has not been any information provided to anyone about the impact of the split on economic and social development, municipal finance (our taxes), or anything else except for the fabricated demonization of people on the east side of the river, it appears that informed decisions are not a requirement of the Reeve and a majority of our council. I don’t care how many people signed a petition, especially one accompanied by no information. I have listened with interest as people talk about the petition. I have heard comments rang-

may take great delight in mocking the government for thinking the health system can be run like a Japanese auto plant. But those little savings like $10 million no longer wasted on spoiled blood seem to be helping. Second, while costs did go up under the NDP administration, waiting lists also grew. For all the squawking one hears from NDP ranks about the evils of private surgical centres, it appears they are making progress on reducing wait times. Third – and perhaps most significant from rural Saskatchewan’s vantage – is that we are no longer seeing the closure of 52 rural hospitals.

One person said they were told they wouldn’t be able to keep farming if the municipality didn’t split, a neighbour said the east side was going to pass a motion to pave all of their roads leaving no road money for the west side, and another added that the west side always had priority, because a grader driver said so. Ridiculous! Not one person, including the mystery grader driver who typically is much maligned but is now trusted on a matter of huge importance, had correct information and not one person has proven any claim of benefits that would result from the split.

Government of Saskatchewan, which, for years, held up Corman Park as a highly successful model for all to consider. Unlike those who wrote the petition, the Minister has to consider the effects on the other 3000 or so people on the west side of Corman Park who didn’t sign, and of many others on the east side of the river. These people, like me, have not had a say or refused to sign. He has to consider the need for informed decisions that benefit everyone, including our children and grandchildren. He needs to consider how this affects the entire region. The region, however, is both a high priority and my greatest concern. In other places, over and over across Canada, where rural jurisdictions couldn’t grow up and manage effectively along with their ur-

ban partners the answer for the province has been to force regional government. I live and work in the country west of Osler. A regional government might well see me as empty political space. My preference is to be listened to by my own council, a modern, unified council that wants to make informed decisions and can function on a par with the other municipal governments of the region. Split Corman Park, ridiculous! I expect that if the Reeve and some councilors push hard for division without, or in spite of, good information I and everyone else in what was Corman Park will be governed by a new Greater Saskatoon Regional Government. That thought bothers me far more than all of the good folks across the river. Glen Grismer Corman Park resident and business owner

Shots fired from vehicle at two locations in Warman, RCMP still investigating Submitted by Sgt. Warren Gherasim Acting Commander Warman RCMP Detachment

THREE VEHICLE COLLISION On April 20, shortly after 3 p.m., the Martensville RCMP responded to a 3 vehicle collision. A north bound truck driven by a 27 year old Saskatoon resident proceeded across Main Street from the Centennial Drive stop. He collided with a west bound PT Cruiser and then ended up hitting a south bound truck stopped at the same intersection. A 52 year old Martensville female sustained minor injuries and all vehicles had to be towed. The 27 year old was charged for proceeding when unsafe to do so under the Traffic Safety Act. MARIJUANA SEIZED On April 21 at 1:30 a.m., an RCMP officer in Martensville observed a vehicle being operated erratically near the intersection of 1st Avenue South and 1st Street South. The vehicle was stopped by police and the driver investigated. Police observed signs that the driver had been drinking and had the driver submit to a roadside breath analysis. The driver failed the roadside test and was arrested for impaired driving. At the time of the stop police also observed evidence of marijuana possession and a search of the vehicle revealed a small amount of marijuana. The driver was transported to the police detachment where he provided breath samples. The driver was found to have a blood alcohol reading in excess of the legal limit. A 21 year old male from Saskatoon was released on charges of impaired driving and marijuana possession. He is scheduled to appear in Saskatoon Provincial Court on May 31.

ERRATIC DRIVER On April 22, at 4:00 p.m., RCMP received a complaint of erratic driving on Main Street in Martensville. The report was that there were several teenagers hanging out of the windows of a vehicle, passing other cars and disobeying a variety of traffic laws. Police located the vehicle and driver a short while later and a 17 year old male from Martensville was charged for driving without reasonable consideration for others under the Traffic Safety Act. VEHICLE ROLLOVER On April 22, shortly after 9 a.m., Warman RCMP responded along with MD Ambulance to a single vehicle rollover on Highway 7 between Vanscoy and Saskatoon. Investigation revealed that a 22 year old female was taking evasive action when a tractor-trailer unit pulled into her lane. The driver lost control of her vehicle and entered the ditch where the car rolled. The driver was transported to hospital and later released. The tractor - trailer unit did not stop at the scene and has not been identified. The matter is still under investigation. SHOTS FIRED IN WARMAN At approximately 9:40 p.m. during the evening of April 21, a Dodge 1500 truck parked in the 400 block of Central St. in Warman was damaged from the firing of an airgun by a passing vehicle. At 10 p.m. a second complaint of more shots were heard near a home on the 100 block of Crystals Springs Drive which received damage when pellets broke the first pane of a front window. The Warman RCMP are still investigating the incident. Anyone with information about either of these incidents is asked to contact the police.

VEHICLE USED IN ASSAULT On April 22, at about 9:00 p.m., police received a complaint of a vehicle being operated erratically in Martensville. Witnesses reported seeing the vehicle being driven in the area of Bendal Cr., where it stopped and a male passenger exited the vehicle and swung what appeared to be a pipe at some people in another car. Police located the car and the driver, a 17 year old male from Martensville, was issued a ticket for driving without due care and attention. A 17 year old male passenger in the vehicle was charged for assault with a weapon and breaching a probation order. The matter is being scheduled for an appearance in Youth Court in June. THREAT WITH FIREARM On April 23, in the early evening hours, the RCMP received a complaint of a gun being pointed at a male in a vehicle when he attended to a rural Corman Park residence on Lutheran Road. The complainant alleged that a male he knew pointed a gun at him. The complainant alleged that a threat was uttered and he left the property unharmed. The RCMP are investigating. VANDALISM AT WHS On April 20, in the late afternoon, the Warman RCMP received a complaint of vandalism to a parked 2008 Cadillac Escalade, which was parked in the parking lot at the Warman High School. The complainant advised that he had parked the vehicle there earlier and that when he returned he found that a large scratch had been done to the side of the vehicle. Police are continuing to investigate the incident. THEFT OF TWO SLEDS On April 23 police re-

ceived a report from a business in the Corman Industrial Park, south of Warman, that two snowmobiles and a trailer were stolen from the business compound sometime in the previous 2 weeks. Police are seeking to locate a pair of 2000 Yamaha snowmobiles and a 2001 snowmobile trailer.

FIRES IN REGION The Warman RCMP responded with the local fire department again this week to several fires in the rural areas. A Langham area fire included a series of bails, spreading into the fields. The cause of the fire is unknown. No one was hurt in the incidents and no buildings were damaged. The RCMP remind people again that the area is very dry, the fire risks are very high and to contact their local RMS’s before attempting any controlled burn. Permits should be obtained, and any fire that requires a fire department response may be subject to a billing against the property owner by the fire department. SUSPICIOUS BUSINESS On April 23 the Warman RCMP responded to a complaint of a suspicious business transaction. The owners of a rural residence in Corman Park had been approached by men who purported to be an Alberta asphalt company and who were offering them a good deal with the leftover asphalt they had used from another job close by. After some dealings with the home owners, the men could not prove legal business status and were vague with contact names as the company owners. Police attended and located the men.

Life lessons and all that Jazz Band gives students a taste of the real thing

Monica Judkins performs a saxaphone solo during a performance for Affinity Credit Union members at the JJ Loewen Centre in Dalmeny on Tuesday, April 24. The Prairie Spirit Jazz Band members come from schools in several different communities, including Langham, Borden, Dalmeny, Asquith, Vanscoy, Delisle and Perdue.

t’s another Tuesday-night gig, and the Prairie Spirit Jazz Band is packing up their instruments, music stands, sound equipment and microphones. The band has just completed a short concert for an audience of members of Affinity Credit Union. As they load everthing into a waiting van outside the JJ Loewen Centre in Dalmeny, they get set for the long drive home. When the alarm clock rings the next morning, they’ve got to be ready to hit the books. But for the Grade 8 to 12 students in the tightly-knit orchestra, it’s all worth it. Playing for an appreciative audience, learning what it takes to be a better musician, and building friendships is all part of the experience. For Kendra Worman, a teacher with the Prairie Spirit School Division and director of the Jazz Band, playing gigs like this one is “the icing on the cake.” “We all love opportunities like this when we’re asked to perform at local community events,” explained Worman in an interview last week. “For

me, I get to relax a bit and have fun, and the kids can really show what they can do. They’ve worked hard during the year, and they’ve put a lot of time and energy into their music. It sounds good. After all the work it takes to get ready, this is the payoff.” Worman said the opportunity to perform at community events gives the students an incentive to embrace their role as musicians. “It’s a very different atmosphere than simply playing for your parents,” Worman said. “This is real life for a musician, and they are musicians.

Province signs four-year deal with SARCAN SARCAN Recycling and Saskatchewan’s Ministry of Environment is celebrating a 24-year long partnership with the commitment of a new four-year operating contract. The ceremonial contract signing took place this week at the Grand Opening of SARCAN’s newest depot expansion, located on Rochdale Boulevard in Regina’s emerging North West community. “The Government of Saskatchewan is committed to working with communities and industry to reduce waste and improve recycling opportunities in the province,” Environment Minister Dustin Duncan said. “This four-year funding agreement helps the Saskatchewan Association of Rehabilitation Centres (SARC) to develop longer-term plans for SARCAN, so they can better serve the recycling needs of Saskatchewan communities.” “SARC, and our recycling division SARCAN, are pleased with the signing of a four-year contract,” SARC/SARCAN Executive Director Amy McNeil said. “The commitment shown by the Government of Saskatchewan provides stability, allows for further system improvements, and enables SARCAN to continue to offer the province one of the most efficient and effective beverage container recycling programs in the country.” As SARCAN looks ahead to its 25th anniversary, opportunities for growth and expansion are possible thanks to the long-term commitment from the Ministry of Environment.

“With a network of 71 depots in 65 communities across the province, Saskatchewan residents are amongst the most dedicated beverage container recyclers in Canada,” SARCAN’s Director of Operations Kevin Acton said.

This audience is here because they want to be entertained.” The Prairie Spirit Jazz Band is made up of students from the Senior Band program in the Prairie Spirit School Division. They’re all students who have demonstrated a high skill level and show leadership and maturity, said Worman. “The band program within the Prairie Spirit School Division is actually made up of several different bands,” she explained. “It includes the communities of Vanscoy, Delisle, Asquith, Perdue, Dalmeny, Langham and Borden. Our beginner band is made up of Grade 5 students, and then we run a junior band program of second and third year students. Our senior band includes any student in their fourth year of band and up, so generally that includes students in Grades 8 to 12.” Those students who want to take their music to the next level apply to become part of the Jazz Band. Band Members are: Dustin Wiens, Ashley Neufeld, Nathan Swift, Connor Judkins, Tyrell Sar-

gent, George Hembery, Liam Whelan, Kezia Fourie, Michael Crabb, Olivia Whitmore, Katherine Cole, Aryn Polichuk, Jessi Gilchrist, Garrett Whelan, and Monica Judkins.

dents quickly learn what’s involved in staging a successful show. “Everything runs like clockwork,” said Worman. “They know what has to be done and they all pitch in.” Those experiences are also part of the senior and junior band programs, although it’s not as intense. “This year our senior band and the Jazz Band went to Edmonton in March and took part in two and half days at the Music Festival there,” she said. “All our bands, including the Junior Band, participated in

the Twin Rivers Music Festival in Dalmeny. We had almost 100 students there. It was the first time we brought all of them, and it worked fairly well. The kids behaved really well and it was a lot of fun.” She said the Jazz Band has a tour lined up in May of all the schools that it draws musicians from. “It’s an oprotunity for the kids that are going to take band in the fall to hear us and hopefully get interested,” she said. “It also gives the musicians a chance to play for their peers.”

BIG COMMITMENT The band involves time and energy, notes Worman. “We have a rehearsal room in Lord Asquith School that can accommodate the entire junior or senior band, and we practice there every week,” said Worman. “The senior band starts rehearsals at 4:15 every Monday, and they practice for two hours. As soon as that’s done, then we go straight in to the Jazz Band for another hour and a half of rehearsals. So if a student is in both groups, they’re rehearsing for about 3 and half hours.” Education with ENERGY E While the school division provides a bus to transport the students to Asquith, it’s still a INSURANCE BROKERAGE SERVICES big commitment every week. “For students from Borden, Proposals requested for insurance brokerage services they’re on the bus for probfor Great Plains College for a five-year term ending ably an hour to Asquith, and June 30, 2017.

Cultivating a taste for fresh food Third season for Warman Farmers Market begins Thursday, May 10 By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

V

endors with the Warman Farmers’ Market are busy preparing for their third season of supplying fresh, tasty, local food to dinner tables throughout the region. “It’s spring, and our farmers’ market opening day is fast approaching,” said Pat Reid, coordinator of the Warman Farmers’ Market. “We open on Thursday, May 10, weather permitting.” Since it first opened in the summer of 2010, the Warman Farmers’ Market has attracted an increasing number of customers looking to tap into locally-grown and processed food. The market operates Thursday afternoons from 2 to 6 pm. Vendors set up in the parking lot of Warman’s town office across from the Post Office.

COMMUNITY TRADITION Patrons are looking for locally-produced baking, handicrafts and artwork. Several times during the summer season, the market also features live music and entertainment. It’s become a tradition in the community, as people of all ages drop by the market to pick up fresh goodies and socialize. It’s also a hit with the vendors, who see it as a tremendous place to build relationships with customers on an ongoing basis.

Barb and Henry Unruh, who farm between Osler and Neuhorst, have been members of the Warman Farmers’ Market since its first season. Long-time members of the Saskatoon Farmers Market for 25 years, they opted to join the local cooperative as well to serve their customers in both locations. They sell vegetables and baked goods that they produce on their operation. For the past few weeks, they’ve been tending early vegetables in their greenhouse and baking a variety of goods. They’re hoping the weather is warm and sunny on May 10, but they’re quite prepared to take whatever Mother Nature hands them. “We’re used to setting up in all kinds of conditions,” said Barb Unruh in an interview April 26. “We’ve been out in the snow and the rain, but we much prefer the sunshine.” The Unruhs first got involved in the Warman Farmers Market shortly after it started. “We would have been there the first week except we didn’t know about it at the very beginning,” explained Unruh. “But once we started, we’re glad we joined. It’s been very worthwhile.” She said the response from the community during the first year of the Warman Farmers’ Market was be-

A TASTE OF HOME

Barb and Henry Unruh’s greenhouse (above) is a busy place, as vegetable seedlings are getting established in preparation for another season of sales at the Warman Farmers Market.

Barb and Henry Unruh joined the Warman Farmers Market in 2010, during the organization’s first year of operation. The couple have been members of the Saskatoon Farmers Market for the past 25 years. Many of their customers from Saskatoon make the trip to Warman on Thursday afternoons to buy fresh vegetables and baking. (Photos submitted by Barb and Henry Unruh)

yond everyone’s expectations, and it’s grown steadily since. “The first year the demand really outstripped the supply,” she said. “We picked as much as we thought we could sell, and lots of times we had to go home for more.”

POPULARITY INCREASING With more vendors coming on board and awareness of the market spreading, the popularity of the weekly event is increasing, she said.

“It’s a nice atmosphere,” she said. “Having it outdoors, it becomes an outing for people looking for something different. People come to the market to meet and talk, and it’s nice on those occasions when we have music because that really adds to the atmosphere as well.” Unruh said it’s nice to have an open-air market close to home. “The whole point is to have fresh produce and fresh baking to of-

fer people,” she said. “Last year, we did almost all our picking on Thursday mornings, and we also did our baking Thursday mornings as well for the Warman market. On Fridays, we did the same thing for the Saskatoon Farmers Market Saturday sales.” She said the Warman Farmers’ Market Thursday sales attract customers not just from the local area, but also from Saskatoon.

SPRING HOUSEKEEPING

A Blue Jay was busy last weekend gathering twigs for its nest. MIgratory birds have returned to the area and are busy finding mates and setting up housekeeping. The Blue Jays feed mainly on nuts and seeds such as acorns, soft fruits, arthropods, and occasionally small vertebrates. They build an open cup nest in the branches of a tree, which both sexes participate in constructing. The clutch can contain two to seven eggs, which are blueish or light brown with brown spots. The young may remain with their parents for one to two months. The bird’s name derives from its noisy, garrulous nature, and it sometimes also called a “jaybird”.

“We have people from Saskatoon that come out to our booth,” she explained. “They’ve been long-time customers of ours at the Saskatoon Farmers Market, and they would wait till Saturday morning to pick up their items before heading out to the lake or wherever for the weekend. But now they can come out on Thursday afternoon and stock up and they get a quicker start on their weekend trips.”

Osler School production of The Lion King brings entire community closer together Students, teachers, staff and community members all pitch in to make annual musical a huge success

Jessica Baron plays the villainous Scar to perfection, while Cole Denis is also a standout in his role as the mischievous Lion King cub, Simba. Even the young Grade 4 actor’s voice and inflections sound like the Simba character in the movie version. But the funniest lines are reserved for that unlikely pair, Timon and Pumbaa, played by Liam Boldt and Cameron Friesen, respectively. There are memorable songs like “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” that stick in your head long after the play has ended. The stage backdrop curtains transport the audience to the depths of the darkest African jungle and also to a stunning Savannah prairie

ifteen years ago, Osler School staged a musical. What made its production unique was that every single student, teacher, and staff member was involved in some way - as an actor, director, choir member, set designer, lighting technician or in a dozen other roles. It brought the whole school together, as everyone worked tirelessly for several weeks in the spring, rehearsing, making sets, sewing costumes, and polishing their lines. That show was such a hit that the school decided to do one the next year. And the next. And the next. Fifteen years later, the Osler School musical is one of the most eagerly-anticipated annual traditions in the area. It’s grown to include the whole community of Osler and beyond, as each evening show routinely sells out and daytime shows are packed with elementary school students from surrounding communities. This year’s production of Disney’s “The Lion King” was one of the most ambitious plays staged by the school – and one of the most successful. For sheer fun, it’s hard to beat the colourful costumes, clever dialogue and catchy tunes that helped make this production a real winner. Based on a famous cartoon movie, the script follows a young lion cub’s journey

The

MAKING MEMORIES This is the second time Osler School has mounted a stage production of The Lion King. The first occasion was ten years ago, and the timing is just a happy coincidence, says Michelle Lane, the main director of the production. “We didn’t even think about it being a ten-year anniversary or anything like

that,” Lane said in an interview at the school after one of the performances last week. “It was just that we thought it was a good story, and Disney has just re-released the movie, so there are a lot of kids who are familiar with the characters and the songs.” Plus, there were some costumes in storage that they could make use of. “Yes, we knew we could dust off those outfits,” said Lane with a smile. “But the big reason was that it’s a fun story that allows us to involve as many kids as we can. And not just the kids, but the parents and people in the community who used to have kids or Continued on Page 16 Please see “LION KING”

We also hear a lot of funny lines and see some pretty spectacular stage tricks. The lead actors were truly memorable in their portrayals of the central characters. The cast includes Nick Hard-

Fitness Tips with Valerie Kirk Prevention Tips for Rotator Cuff Injuries and Shoulder Tendonitis What is a Rotator Cuff injury? Perhaps you may have been working out at a gym, pushing a heavy weight and heard a popping sound in your shoulder. Or what about if you were down hill skiing and you fell landing on your shoulder first in the snow. Or maybe just having a friendly game of tennis, when all of a sudden there’s a sharp pain in your shoulder. These are all signs of basically the same thing; a rotator cuff injury. You could call this a rotator cuff tear or shoulder tendonitis, it’s really all the same. A tear, strain or inflmmation in the rotator cuff muscles and tendons. If you suffer from this sort of condition or you may be seeking to prevent its occurrence it is important to follow the information in this article. Also, by adding a few simple stretches to your fitness program will also help. It is my suggestion that you get yourself “The Stretching Handbook” and how it can improve your fitness. NOTE: “Frozen Shoulder is a slightly different condition which affects the shoulder joint where the surrounding capsule becomes inflamed. Anatomy of the Shoulder Joint The shoulder joint really is a unique and remarkable creation. It’s quite a complex formation of bones, muscles and tendons which provides a great range of motion for your arm. But there is a downsize to this joint, as is very unstable and this makes the shoulder joint very vulnerable to injury. Lets look at the shoulder joint in more detail. The shoulder is made up of three bones, and the tendons of four muscles (tendons attach muscle to bone). The bones are called “Scapula”, “Humerus” and the “Clavicle”, or in layman’s terms, shoulder blae, upper arm bone and collarbone. The four muscles which make up the shoulder joint are “Supraspinatus”, “Infraspinatus”, “Teres minor” and “Subscapularis”. The tendons of these muscles connect to the bones, that help to move your arm. • Discounts and coupons available with bookings

t’s a whole new ball game. The Warman Gems and the Delisle National Leasing Diamond Dogs are gearing up for a new season in the Saskatoon Amateur Softball Association (SASA). Both teams are in the Keith McLean Division of the SASA, a highly-competitive fastball league that plays regular season weeknight games at Bob Van Impe and Gordie Howe stadiums in Saskatoon. The Diamond Dogs are hoping to build on last year’s regular season success, where they led the league in wins. The Gems meanwhile, are also aiming to repeat their success from last season.

BORDEN & DISTRICT News By LORRAINE OLINYK lolinyk@sasktel.net

Welcome to Borden – Steve Hughes, Stephanie Siebert and daughter Mearah are renting the Anglican Rectory in Borden. A gathering was held April 29th at the newly built home of Greg and Kim Worona, Katelyn and Justin SW of Borden to welcome them to the Saginaw district. Laurie Unruh welcomed everyone and how glad everyone was to see Kim(nee Petrun) and her family move back to the Borden area, Carol Crabb read a poem that her and Curtis had composed and Gladys Wensley read the words from the song Bless This Houses. A wood crafted welcome sign with a bird house on top and their names engraved on wooden plaques on the front was presented to the family from those in the District, then everyone enjoyed lunch & beverages. A baby shower was held the afternoon of April 25th, in the Borden Senior’s Room, to honor Evangeline Patricia, daughter of Duncan and Courtney McQuarrie who live north of Borden on an acreage. Gayle Wensley, as emcee, had everyone introduce themselves, where they lived and how many children, grandchildren, etc. they had – winning the prize was Hel-

en Sutherland with over 20 in total. A quiz was done where you wrote a question you may have had when you had your first baby, then the card was passed on and you wrote the answer to your question on the back of your neighbors question which proved to be quiet hilarious for some of the answers. The gifts were then opened and passed around, Courtney thanked everyone for coming and for the variety of great gifts, and lunch was enjoyed by all. A bridal shower was held April 23rd in the Borden Senior’s Room, to honor Danielle Wiebe, who will be marrying Gordon Neufeld on May 5th and they will be living in Gordon’s new home in Borden. Heidi Neufeld was emcee, and after introducing the head table – Danielle, her mother Judy Wiebe and Velora Neufeld, mother of Gordon, she had everyone try to answer 20 questions all about Danielle and Gordon, so that guests could learn a bit more about the happy couple. Everyone then enjoyed lunch followed by gift opening and Danielle thanked everyone for the gifts and for coming.

City of Warman logo contest underway By TERRY PUGH tpugh@ccgazette.ca

A

s the Town of Warman gears up to become the City of Warman this fall, residents have the chance to help define a brand new look for the community. A contest to come up with a new logo for Warman is currently underway, and everyone is encouraged to submit their best ideas, according to Sarah King, Economic Development Officer for Warman. “We’re in the midst of oiur re-branding process,” said King in an interview at the Warman Municipal Office on Monday, April 30. “We’re looking to have a new logo that will define the image of the town going into the future.” King said the contest is open to everyone. Contest forms are available at the Warman Municipal Office, Warman Elementary School, Warman High School and the Clark’s Crossing Gazette office. To sweeten the pot, there’s a $100 cash prize for the winning entry. The deadline for submissions of logo designs is Thursday, May 31, so it’s a tight timeline to get those entries in, noted King. “We want to have the new logo in place by this fall, so it

can be unveiled after the municipal election October 24,” she said. “The possibilities for the design are endless. People can use any colour scheme they like, they don’t have to stick to the current colours of maroon and black or red and black. We’re starting off with a completely blank slate.” Once the submission deadline closes at the end of May, the entries will be judged by the Economic Development Committee of the Town of Warman. The winning design will then be handed over to a professional graphic arts consultant to be rendered into its final polished form. King said the entries can be done by hand or created using a computer. “If someone wants to put one together using different elements like photographs, that’s fine,” she said. “The sky is the limit when it comes to creativity.” The one criteria that must be followed is that the design needs to be able to be printed out so that the commmittee can view a hard copy for judging purposes, she said. While the new logo will be the centrepiece in the rebranding process, King said there will also be other changes coming. The town’s website is currently in the process of being completely revamped and updated, she noted.

Warman co-operatives helping build community The United Nations has declared this year, 2012, to be the International Year of Cooperatives. The International Year of Cooperatives is to raise public awareness of the invaluable contributions of cooperative enterprises to reduce poverty, generate employment and social integration.

Firefighters attack a fire smouldering in a massive pile of rubble at a recycling firm south of Martensville on April 25

Industrial blaze creates challenge for firefighters By TERRY PUGH tpugh@ccgazette.ca

F

ire crews from Martensville, Warman, Dalmeny and Saskatoon battled a stubborn blaze at a metal recycling business in Corman Park on Wednesday, April 25. The Martensville Fire Department was initially called to the fire at B&N Metals, an industrial area alongside Highway 12 about 4 miles south of Martensville late Wednesday morning. The fire occurred in a rubble pile, and was the result of a malfunction in a metal shredding machine. Firefighters were able to contain the blaze and prevented it from spreading to neighbouring businesses or buildings. There were no injuries as a result of the fire. Martensville Fire Chief Kurtis Dyck said the initial call came in at 11:20 a.m., and the department responded with two trucks - a pumper truck and a specially-equipped wildfire truck. He said the Warman Fire Department was called for backup. Warman sent a pumper truck and wildfire unit as well. “When we arrived we realized it was a large fire and we were going to need more resources,” said Dyck. “So we

immediately called Dalmeny and Saskatoon Fire Depatments.” The Dalmeny and Saskatoon Fire Departments responded with water tenders. “We had a lot of water on scene to help us fight the fire,” said Dyck. “But we needed it because it was actually a pretty tough fire to attack.” According to employees at the industrial site, the fire was initially started as a result of an explosion in the metal shredding machine. Once the rubble pile was ignited, strong winds fanning the flames allowed the fire to spread quickly throughout the mountain of debris. The fire was also difficult to attack because it was burning deep within the large pile of metal and other refuse. Three digging machines were employed to dig down into the rubble pile in an effort to enable firefighters to douse the smouldering fire. “They had to dig down probably 20 to 30 feet to allow us to get at it,” said Dyck. “It was difficult to extinguish.” Dyck said the Martensville Fire Department initially responded with just a few members, but their numbers were gradually reinforced over the course of battling the blaze. By the time the fire was extinguished about 1:00 p.m.

Martensville Fire Chief Kurtis Dyck is interviewed after the fire at B&N Metals by CTV Television News there were 6 members of the Martensville Fire Department on the scene. Dyck said there was a similar fire at the same business a year ago. He noted there have been a rash of wildfires due to the dry conditions in the rural areas over the past couple of weeks, and said people need to be extremely cautious when it comes to burning anything. “It’s a serious situation,” he said. “There is no fire ban yet, but if these dry conditions continue, that will probably be the next step. We’ve had a lack of moisture this spring and there wasn’t much in the way of snow cover this past winter, so it’s a lot drier than normal.” While the grass and brush is dry, the ground is still soft as the frost is still coming

out, noted Dyck. “That causes problems for vehicles trying to get to the wildfires if they’re in places that aren’t accessible by road,” he said. Dyck said the close cooperation between fire departments is they key to success in fighting fires, particularly during the day when most of the members of the volunteer fire departments are at work. The North Corman Park Fire Chiefs Association has a mutual aid agreement between Martensville, Warman, Dalmeny, Osler, and Langham fire departments. Each of these departments can call on the others for backup in the event of a fire or other emergency. This ensures there are sufficient resources to respond to emergency situations in the North Corman Park area.

Warman consultant found guilty of breach of trust James William Solar was found guilty of breach of trust for stealing more than $40,000 from the estate of the late Nick Regush of Warman. Solar, who operates a consulting business in Warman that offers services including wills and estate executions, was also found guilty on charges of unauthorized use, theft over $5,000, theft under $5,000, and fraud over $5,000 – all of which were subsumed by the breach of trust. Solar was found guilty of the charges at his trial in March, 2012. He appeared at a sentencing hearing in Court of Queen’s Bench on Friday, April 27. Solar was found not guilty of disobeying a court order related to a legal action brought by Regush’s heirs. Solar represented himself at his sentencing hearing. He requested that he be allowed to serve his sentence in the community, and said he can raise money for restitution

by selling a piece of property. The Crown prosecutor, meanwhile, wanted Solar to serve jail time. At the hearing last week, Justice Neil Gabrielson told Solar that he needed to hire a lawyer and bring proof he can repay the money at his next court appearance, scheduled for June 27. Otherwise, the judge said, Solar would very likely serve jail time because of the seriousness of the offense. Nick Regush passed away October 5, 2002, and left a will naming Solar and his brother, Michael Regush as executors. Michael Regush, who lives in BC, gave up his duties to the estate on July 31, 2003, leaving Solar as the sole executor. However, before he gave up his role as executor, Michael Regush opened his brother’s safety deposit box in the presence of Nick’s two grandsons and found $32,895, mainly in $100 bills.

During Solar’s trial in March, court was told that Solar removed the cash on August 20, 2003, and opened a safety deposit box in his own at another bank the next day. Three months later, Solar began depositing $100 bills into the Solar Consulting account on that bank. He also deposited a Regush CPP cheque for $916 into his own business account. Solar claimed he took the funds as payment for services rendered. Nick Regush’s daughter, Orlene Kozak, had herself appointed administrator of the estate in 2004. After she discovered the missing cash, she filed a complaint with the RCMP. Charges were laid in 2008. The charge of disobeying the court order pertained to a delay in Solar turning over documents to Kozak after he was removed as executor. The judge ruled that Solar intended to comply with the order.

Affinity CU presents cash for Martensville community projects By TERRY JENSON tjenson@ccgazette.ca

On a soggy and cool Saturday afternoon, Affinity Credit Union representatives brought a big ray of sunshine to residents of Martensville by presenting cheques for a pair of community initiatives.

The financial institution donated $2,500 to the Martensville Spray & Play Water Park while another $20,361.92 was presented to the Martensville Kinsmen Gazebo Project. Both cheque presentations were made over the noon hour at the city’s Business Expo at the Martensville Curling Club. Organizers of the Spray & Play Water Park project are in the process of raising $100,000 in order to upgrade and revitalize the popular facility while the Kinsmen Club of Martensville is in the midst of constructing a gazebo that can be used by the public for photography sessions, weddings, family gatherings and other special occasions. Weather permitting, it’s

expected the gazebo will be completed and ready for use in the next week or so, according to Mike McLeod, district delegate for Martensville and Affinity Credit Union board member. The Affinity Gazebo, located in Kinsmen Park, is 16-feet in diameter and is strategically located next to Kinsmen Lake. “Every year Affinity Credit Union gives three per cent of our pre-tax dollars back to

the communities we serve,” explained “Last year, that was $1.3 million in the communities that we have branches in so we are quite proud of that.” McLeod added that over the past four years in Martensville, Affinity Credit Union has supported projects such as Every Body’s Playground, the Martensville Community Access Centre as well as assisting in the development of the city’s trail system.

Warman council approves location for farmers market

By TERRY PUGH tpugh@ccgazette.ca

T

he Warman Farmers Market is returning to its familiar location in the heart of the community for the third straight year. Warman Town Council approved a request from the producers’ organization to locate in the Warman Town Office parking lot for the 2012 summer season, beginning May 10. At its regular meeting on Monday, April 23, council discussed possible options for the location of the popular outdoor market before voting to keep the same location for at least one more year. The market will occupy

the entire town office parking lot on Thursday afternoons beginning May 10. In previous years, the market occupied the south half of the parking lot. However, as the organization has grown and more vendors look to set up in the popular market, the need for more space has become obvious. Two new vendors’ booths this year prompted the organization’s request for additional parking stalls. Warman council voted to turn the entire parking lot over the market for one afternoon during the week. While acknowledging the difficulties this posed to town office staff, councilors also noted the event

has an overall positive impact on the central business district in Warman. “I don’t want to impose any hardship on our staff at the town office,” said Warman town councilor Sharon Martens, “But I also think this is a very worthwhile and important part of our community and I think we should allow the farmers’ market to be in this location for this year.” Some councilors felt that as the farmers market grows, alternative locations would have to be found in the future. Possible sites include the paved parking lot at the Warman Fire Hall, or more likely, the parking lot at the

Legends Centre in Warman’s north end once that parking lot is paved.

SUITE APPROVED A recommendation to approve an application for a secondary suite in the latest phase of the Rockwood neighbourhood in Warman was given approval by Warman Town Council at its meeting April 23. Brad Toth, Director of Planing for Warman, noted the application met all the requirements for secondary suites laid out in the town’s bylaw. In fact, he said, it exceeded the requirements because it included two extra parking stalls for residents. He noted there were no concerns from

neigbours in the area. HIGHWAY 305 WEIGHTS A recommendation from Warman’s planning committee to impose weight restrictions on Highway 305 was adopted by council at its April 23 meeting. The weight restrictions will only come into effect when the new, realigned Highway 305 is fully functional. Warman Director of Planning Brad Toth said the town is working with the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure on the future of the old Highway 305, which is Warman’s main east-west traffic corridor and is known as Central Street within town limits.

“Highways has told us they won’t be reconstructing that road to a higher standard after the new Highway 305 route is opened,” Toth explained. “So the objective is to take the heavy truck traffic off the old road and re-route it to the new highway. The Highways Ministry is looking for a motion from this council to restrict weights to 10 tonnes, to take effect once the new highway is functional.” The old Highway 305 will revert to the RM of Corman Park, and it is expected a resolution imposing the lower weight restriction will also be forthcoming from that municipal council.

Martensville City Council adopts 2012 Budget Average tax increase of 4% for all properties, garbage fees also increasing

M

artensville City Council passed its 2012 budget at its regular meeting May 1. Council discussed the items presented by Administration. All areas of the budget were discussed in detail including service levels.

RESERVE FUND Council spent a considerable amount of time discussing whether or not to start funding a reserve for a future wastewater treatment facility. This will be required at some time in the future to meet the Ministry of Environment’s regulations. Council decided not to start funding in 2012 but it will be a discussion item in the 2013 budget deliberations. TAX INCREASE OF 4% Through the budget process Council made a decision to implement a tax increase. The average tax increase will be 4% for all properties through a combination of an increase in the Mill Rate and an increase in Base Tax. The 2012 Mill Rate will be 6.92 mills up 4% from the 2011 Mill Rate of 6.65 mills. GARBAGE FEE HIKE In 2011 the Base Tax Rate of $750 included garbage/recycling fees ($110) as well as a Lagoon Improvement Levy ($50). The City received notice in January that our garbage fees were going to increase substantially for 2012. This is

NEED TO

an increase from the $110 per property in 2011 to $165 per property in 2012 to maintain a user pay system. Martensville uses Base Tax money to cover garbage fees while some other municipalities add garbage fees to the utility bills. This increase in garbage fees affects every municipality in the area. The Base Tax Rate in 2011 (net of garbage) was $640 (City Base plus Lagoon Improvement Levy) per property. The 4% increase on the net amount is $665 (City Base plus Lagoon Improvement Levy) per property in 2012.

MUNICIPAL TAX PORTION The Notice of 2012 Property Tax Levies will appear as follows (this is just the City portion there is also a School Tax Levy of 9.51 mills). 2011 levies are listed for comparison: 2012 2011 City Base 615.00 590.00 Garbage/ Recycling Fees 165.00 110.00 Lagoon Improvement Levy 50.00 50.00 City Residential Tax levy 6.92 6.65 Future Wastewater Treatment Levy 0.00 N/A

CEMETERY PROJECT Some of the major items included in the 2012 budget include the continuation of de-

veloping the Cemetery just west of Ranch Ehrlo Society in the RM of Corman Park at the junction of Rge. Rd. 3052 and Twp. Rd. 384.

TRAFFIC LIGHTS Council has approved the installation of traffic lights at the intersection of Main St and Centennial Drive. It is expected that this will assist with the traffic issues and make the area safer. RECREATION FACILITIES There will be continued Ball Diamond development on MR5 north of the Swimming Pool, linear pathway develop-

REGIONAL WASTEWATER Work is being done to secure a lagoon discharge option in cooperation with RM of Corman Park which will assist the City with the time to plan and work with our neighbors to investigate the possibility of developing a Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility. CITY HALL PROJECT Council has authorized the planning and future construction (Fall of 2012 or Spring of 2013) of a City Hall.

Rail Safety Week raises awareness The Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure, Canadian National Railway (CN), Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) and the Saskatchewan Shortline Railway Association (SSRA) are encouraging everyone to do their part to reduce crossing collisions and trespassing incidents along railways. “Remember to always watch for trains when approaching any railway crossing, whether you’re a motortist, cyclist or a pedestrian,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Jim Reiter said. “Be alert, no matter what time of the year because you never know when a train will be moving.” National Public-Rail Safety Week, which runs April 30 to May 6 this year, is an initiative of Operation Lifesaver, which promotes rail safety through the involvement of various transportation, government and safety partners. “We all have a stake in community safety,” CP Police Service Canadian Operations Deputy Chief Ken Marchant said. “Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians need to be aware of the dangers associated around railway crossings and on railway property. Through initiatives like Rail Safety Week, we hope to educate and prevent rail related incidents from occurring.”

The site for the project will be on the current Civic Centre property. The site is significant since it is owned by the City and the City will not incur any land acquisition costs for the project. Currently administration is working out of 3 different facilities; streamlining to one facility will create cost savings and reduce the frustration from residents having to go to different buildings to get answers.

EQUIPMENT PURCHASES Council approved smaller projects, staffing needs and equipment purchases in the

2012 budget that are very important for the operation of the City. There is a need to plan for the future and enhance our infrastructure to improve the quality of life for our residents.

CAPITAL PROJECTS The Martensville City Administration has prepared a multi-year capital project and equipment program. The program will include the details of funding those projects and equipment purchases. Council will continue to review and enhance the Strategic Plan to guide the future of Martensville.

Report From The Legislature Highways 11 and 12 planning study looking for public feedback The tremendous growth that our communities have seen in the last decade has put considerable pressure on Martensville MLA our highways that serve these communities. In particular, entering or leaving Warman or Martensville during rush hours can be quite challenging. Accident statistics are rising and questions of safety have been raised. With our current economic trajectory, our growth rates will undoubtedly continue and our highways will get even busier. We therefore need to plan for future interchanges and other safety improvements at key access points along Highways 11 & 12 north of Saskatoon. The Ministry of Highways is currently in the midst of a comprehensive functional planning study for this area that will lay the blueprint for future improvements. An open house was recently held in Warman on April 18 to solicit public input into this process. Information was presented regarding the problems on these highways, and potential interchanges at various locations were discussed. A consultant will be examining these options and accepting public feedback over the summer. Their goal is to have another open house in the fall of 2012 with a set of proposed recommendations. Anyone that has any specific concerns regarding any of the highway intersections north of Saskatoon, or ideas for shortterm, medium-term or long-term improvements, is encouraged to contact the consultant that is conducting this study. Public feedback is welcome. More information can be found at

As of noon on April 30, the Shock Trauma Air Rescue Society (STARS) was ready to provide helicopter air ambulance services for critically ill and injured patients in southern Saskatchewan. Following a brief ceremony involving dignitaries and former patients, the organization opened its base in Regina. “This is a historic day for Saskatchewan. The launch of the STARS helicopter air medical service for our province is made possible today through the strong partnership of the health system, community minded businesses, and our government,” Health Minister Don McMorris said. “People across southern Saskatchewan now have the comfort of knowing that in an emergency, help is closer at hand than ever before.” Each helicopter crew includes two pilots, a critical-care nurse and an advanced care paramedic. An emergency physician trained in pre-hospital care and transportation is also available by telephone for every emergency response and travels in the helicopter whenever medically necessary.

STARS signed a service agreement with the Government of Saskatchewan in April 2011 to provide helicopter air ambulance services from bases in Regina and Saskatoon. Since then, STARS has been working closely with government, corporate donors, and partners in health care and emergency services to facilitate the launch of both bases. The Regina base is the first to open in the province, with the Saskatoon base set to open in the fall of 2012. “Together with our partners in emergency services and health care, we will work to enhance access for critically ill and injured patients,” said Andrea Robertson, STARS President & CEO. “We appreciate the support of the Government of Saskatchewan, our corporate supporters and the community for making this a reality.” STARS is beginning operations at the Regina base with daylight hours, 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and will proceed toward 24 hours a day later in the summer. STARS phases in base openings to increase comfort level with providing service in an air medical environment when the majority of clinical and aviation staff are new. This provides for the safest environment for patients and the STARS team. Several major donors have provided contributions to the STARS Saskatchewan program including Crescent Point Energy, Mosaic, PotashCorp, Enbridge, Enerplus, Husky Energy and Rawlco Radio. STARS is a charitable, non-profit organization that provides rapid and specialized emergency medical care and transportation for critically ill and injured patients. STARS has flown more than 22,000 missions across Alberta and eastern British Columbia since 1985. In 2011 STARS began responding to emergencies in Manitoba from a base located in Winnipeg.

However, once the wedding is over and the honeymoon concluded, there remain a number of money-related issues that new couples must deal with to ensure a “prosperous” relationship. BMO Financial Group recently released financial tips for newlyweds-to-be on how to make the transition from “my money” to “our money.” The following are BMO’s financial tips for a happy marriage: Not in the peerage? Your honeymoon doesn’t have to be in steerage: -- Once you have determined a wedding date, calculate how much you will need to save per month and establish a contingency fund. -- Spend smart - Credit cards offer both reward programs and, in some cases, purchase protection. Putting all your wedding and honeymoon expenses on a credit card can maximize reward value, while protection features for purchases and travel can provide peace of mind for newlyweds. Guest list doesn’t include kings and queens? Plan a budget to live within your means: -- Establish how household expenses will be paid and how money will be managed. Take advantage of free online tools, such as BMO MoneyLogic, to help stay on top of everyday household spending and saving. -- Make sure you are honest with each other regarding

your respective debt levels and investments. It is the only way you will be able to plan effectively. -- Make it a priority to pay down your higher interest debt first. Whenever possible, pay off your entire credit card balance every month. You could also consider consolidate your higher interest debt in a lower interest account, such as a personal line of credit. -- Once you have agreed upon a common retirement lifestyle, start contributing to your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP). -- Discuss ways to balance risk in your investment portfolios by including a variety of products such as mutual funds, exchange traded funds (ETFs), guaranteed investment certificates (GICs) and bonds. No crown? Tax tips to make sure you don’t wear a frown: -- Do some advance research into how your new marital status will impact your tax status. For example, you are required to each file your own tax return. However you do have to indicate you are married. The government will look at your combined income to determine your eligibility for certain credits (e.g. GST/HST credit). -- Learn about potential tax credits. For example, if one of you is in school, the student can transfer the tuition and education amount to the working spouse to lower the tax burden. Married couples are also able to combine medical expenses and charitable donations in their tax return. -- A working spouse can con-

tribute to his/her non-working or lower income earning partner’s RRSP (Spousal RRSP) to split income and reduce taxes in retirement. -- Also keep in mind that you will need to update your will to reflect your new marital status. Grandmother not buying

you a castle? Arrange a mortgage with no hassle: -- Stress-test your budget using a mortgage payment based on a higher rate to make sure you can afford what you signed up for. Keep in mind that total housing costs (mortgage payments, property taxes, heating

costs, etc.) should not consume more than one-third of household income. -- Consider taking a shorter amortization, which will mean less interest payments over the life of the mortgage and will help you and your spouse become mortgage free faster.

-- Think carefully about fixed versus variable. While variable rate mortgages have been a winning strategy over the long term, fixed rate mortgages (currently at historic lows) provide the peace of mind of insulating you against rate increases.

Are you and your boat ready for the season? E

By John Gullick Canadian Safe Boating Council

very year thousands of boaters go out on the water without giving any thought to how prepared either they or their boats are for the season ahead. Personal preparation involves ensuring you have on-hand your Pleasure Craft Operator Card, up to date nautical charts, a pre-departure checklist and have obtained a reliable marine weather forecast. When it comes to vessel preparedness, one of the first things to ensure is that your boat and engine(s) are mechanically sound. Remember that, throughout most of Canada, boats have been in storage for a number of months over the winter and may not operate as efficiently as they did last season. Make sure that you follow the recommended maintenance schedule found in your boat’s owner’s manual. The Canadian government also mandates that specific safety equipment be carried on board. This equipment can be of great benefit and can mean the difference between a great day out on the water and a potential disaster. During Safe Boating Awareness Week (May 19th - 25th, 2012) and throughout the entire season, the Canadian Safe Boating Council and Smartboater.ca want to remind Canadians to review their safe boating check list before heading out onto the water. Required items vary depending on boat length but the list below highlights the things that, at minimum, need be carried on board, in good working condition and within reach each time you go out: Compulsory Items required on a typical vessel 6 meters or less in length: The vessels license or registration if powered by a motor of 7.5 kw (10 hp) or more A Canadian approved flotation device (PFD) in good repair and of appropriate size for every person on board Fire extinguisher (depending on type of engine, gas tank or cooking appliances on board) Watertight flashlight or pyrotechnic distress signal requirements (flares) Sound signaling device Buoyant heaving line (minimum 15 meters in length) Paddle or anchor with at least 15 meters of rode and /or chain Re-boarding device Bailer or manual water pump Navigation lights Other items to check: Secure batteries Passive ventilation that allows air to flow through below decks Exhaust fan or bilge blower that removes dangerous vapours Flame arrester and heat shielding for inboard engines Up-to-date charts Magnetic compass Radar reflector Consider requesting a Recreational Vessel Courtesy Check. This is a totally voluntary service and is conducted without penalty if a deficiency is found. You will simply be advised of the requirement and a re-inspection will be offered when you have added these items. Canadian Power & Sail Squadrons are currently the only non-governmental national source for this programme. They will inspect vessels that are in or out of the water. They can tell you what is required and give you specific information about each item. Review your check list BEFORE your leave – Be Prepared! Whether you use a power boat, sail boat, personal watercraft, canoe, kayak or fishing boat, find more information on a variety of boating safety tips by visiting www.SmartBoater.ca.

Western municipalities urge senior governments to invest in infrastructure Federal and provincial governments need to invest more in municipal infrastructure. That was the message coming out of a meeting of municipal associations from Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The asociations met Friday, April 27 in Regina to discuss issues of common interest. “The west is where economic activity is happening in this country,” said Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association (SUMA) Vice-President for Towns Rolly Zimmer. “We are deeply concerned that the economic growth of our region will be severely impacted by the lack of investment through federal/provincial programs in municipal infrastructure.” “Local governments provide the necessary infrastructure required to grow an economy,” said Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM) President David Marit. “Unfortunately, rural and urban governments have a limited number of tools to raise funds necessary and are restricted in borrowing to address the challenge of rehabilitating and constructing THAT’S MY

growth-related infrastructure such as roads, bridges, water systems, and recreational facilities.” “It is critical that the provincial and federal governments increase investment in municipal infrastructure,” said Alberta Urban Municipalities Association (AUMA) President Linda Sloan. “They must commit to a long-term funding partnership with local governments to address essential infrastructure.” “There is a tremendous need for infrastructure investment in our communities,” said Alberta Association of Municipal Districts and Counties (AAMDC) President Bob Barss. “Local governments are in need of an infrastructure program that helps us to address the challenges we face, without this investment our economies will suffer.” All municipal associations are currently engaged with their respective provincial governments on the issue of infrastructure. In addition, they are working through the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, to ensure these concerns are also being communicated to the federal government.

A common request among all associations is that any new infrastructure program must be long-term, sustainable and that funding should be substantial to make a considerable impact on the infrastructure deficit. “Local governments play a pivotal role in a province’s economy by providing the services and infrastructure necessary to attract people and investment,” said Association of Manitoba Municipalities (AAMM) President Doug Dobrowolski. “Ensuring local governments have the funding needed to continue in this role is crucial to the future of all three provinces.”
