Leighton Schroeder of Carlyle, SK was nothing short of quick in Friday night’s steer wrestling event at the 20th Annual Warman Diamond Rodeo. Schroeder turned in an impressive 4.7-second run at the rain-shortened event, which saw Sunday’s performance cancelled after judges decided ground conditions inside the rodeo arena were too dangerous.

Student bursary program attracts young blood donors By TERRY PUGH

bursary program offered by Canadian Blood Services (CBS) is pulling in a new generation of blood donors across Saskatchewan. The CBS is offering 19 bursaries to high school and postsecondary students who recruit at least 20 blood donors over the summer months. The “Assignment - Saving Lives”

bursaries include one in the amount of $1500 and another for $1000. “It’s a very successful program in so many ways,” said Jennifer Dareichuk with Canadian Blood Services. “A lot of young people are attracted

to the program initially because of the money, but they stay with us because they become committed to the cause.” Students who apply for the bursary program receive training through CBS. “We try and educate them about blood donations,” said Dareichuk. “It’s important for recruiters to understand the reasons why blood donations are so badly-needed throughout the year, and also to understand that it is a real chal-

lenge to find blood donors.” Dareichuk said the training program is about building a relationship with young people. “Once they understand why this is so important, they become ambassadors for the blood system,” she said. She said this is the fifth year for the bursary program, and the number of students who complete the training course is increasing every year. The number of bursaries, and the amount of money

in each, are also on the rise. “It’s become a key summer program across Saskatchewan,” explained Dareichuk. “We have a lot of students that come back year after year, even if they don’t actually win one of the bursaries, they understand that they’re doing something positive.” She said last year, 71 students participated in the program, and of those, 32 qualified for bursaries. The total number of bursaries last year

was 17, and this year it has increased to 19. The funds for the bursaries are donated by corporate sponsors, community organizations and individuals, explained Dareichuk. The program began June 1 and continues through to September 3. To be eligible for a bursary, students must recruit a minimum of 20 blood donors, of whom 5 must be new Continued on Page 4 Please see “BURSARY”

Face to face: straight talk across the table works When offenders and victims of crime work together to resolve situations through mediation, the results are often surprising. The Valley West Community Justice Committee is making progress in area communities By HILARY KLASSEN

hilaryklassen@gmail.com

J

ustice is best served by bringing victims and offenders together in faceto-face meetings, providing a highly successful alternative to court proceedings for lessserious crimes, according to the Valley West Community Justice Committee (VWCJC). Earl Keeler of Delisle, Chair of the VWCJC, said the majority of cases resolved through mediation and restitution result in a successful outcome, since those people who complete the process rarely re-offend. At the VWCJC annual meeting in Martensville on Thursday, June 7, committee members were told that that program is working well, and has overcome serious challenges in the last couple of years. Following a year in which its case load increased sub-

stantially, the VWCJC also found itself short of trained mediators, the key players who facilitate these alternative measures for justice. Without enough mediators, the file flow had to be reduced, and the committee was limited in its ability to expand services. Keeler said part of the challenge in finding mediators is the requirement by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Justice that all mediators in the program receive six days of training. For individuals holding down a nine-to-five job, it’s difficult to fit the training into their schedules. Recently however, three new mediators completed the training and will soon begin to handle cases for the VWCJC. The new recruits will need to do some “shadowing” first, where they observe other mediators in action and gain the confidence to launch out on their own.

Those who do receive the training in mediation find it highly valuable. New mediator and committee member Richard Beck of Warman said the training was fantastic. “There was a good group of participants from all over the province,” Beck said. “The instructors were well informed and the principles and strategies taught are practical for personal life too.” The committee also faces communication challenges with the sources of its case files, explained Judy Morris, VWCJC treasurer. She said the committee has to stay in constant touch with the courts, John Howard Society and police contacts. “We have to keep reminding these people that we exist,” she said. “We have to keep introducing ourselves.” Morris wears several other hats in her committee work as well, including court liaison, contact for Saskatchewan Justice and file coordinator. This situation is compounded because leadership in communities represented on the committee (Delisle, Radisson, Hague, Aberdeen, Warman and Martensville) often changes hands and visibility is lost. The concern is

that opportunities for successful mediation will be missed. Morris said the success of the program depends on maintaining a high profile, keeping contacts fresh as new faces come and go, and working toward a centralized approach. Typically, crimes such as mischief, vandalism, petty theft, minor assaults and related crimes of opportunity are being successfully addressed by VWCJC. Morris notes that recently an increase in bullying files have landed in the committee’s purview. These cases tend to be somewhat sensitive and a bit more difficult to address. Offenders who successfully complete the program have the perk of not having a criminal record. In the one case file that was unsuccessful, Morris believes the reason is the offender got into court, didn’t understand the lingo, and simply agreed to a process without adequate knowledge of what was involved. The benefits of the mediation process are not always evident at the beginning, conceded Keeler, noting that victims of crime can be skeptical of these alternative measures. Keeler said victims may feel violated and suggest the VW-

CJC should be more heavy handed. But in the end those who participate are very happy with the process. “People don’t really realize how effective this whole process is,” explained Keeler, adding his own personal experience led him to believe strongly in the mediation model. At one point he and his wife moved to a different property and lived in constant fear that they would be broken into. Eventually they were.

“When someone breaks into your house, you feel really violated,” stated Keeler. “I would have really loved to sit across the table from the person who did it but the offender was never found.” Keeler stated there are new challenges coming and different types of case files to handle. But, he concluded, things are moving in the right direction. With an increased number of mediators now ready to handle cases, the VWCJC will be better prepared to increase and diversify their caseload,

Meetings ongoing for dam operating plan By TERRY PUGH

A

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

recent meeting between the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority (SWA) and stakeholders along the South Saskatchewan River downstream of the Gardiner Dam made a step in the right direction, but there’s still a lot of issues to be resolved, according to Bill Lemisko, a farmer and landowner in the RM of Corman Park south of Saskatoon. Lemisko and about 80 other people took part in the first of several consultations planned for this summer and fall, as the SWA attempts to implement an operating plan that takes into account a number of conflicting interests. The meeting was held in response to numerous concerns raised by stakeholders who felt the SWA was adjusting water levels primarily to accommodate the electrical power generating requirements of SaskPower. “There was some good information that came out of the meeting,” explained Lemisko in a phone interview last week. “I think it was an eyeopener for the SWA people, because there wasn’t a lot of support for the way it is currently operating the lake levels.” The Government of Saskatchewan issued a news release in the wake of the meeting saying it was delivering on a promise to renew the SWA operating plan for Lake Diefenbaker. “Lake Diefenbaker is the most important water resources and integral to current and future economic development in the province,” stated Ken Cheveldayoff, Minister responsible for the SWA. “Our government is committed to engaging our stakeholders and developing a solid plan for the

people of Saskatchewan.” The meeting brought together landowners, recreational users, industrial and environmental groups, municipalities and representatives from First Nations communities along the river. The new reservoir operating plan is scheduled to be implemented in 2013 after consultations wrap up this fall, according to Cheveldayoff. Information on the development of the new reservoir operating plan for Lake Diefenbaker is available online at www.swa.ca.

Lemisko said one of the concerns raised at the meeting was that high water levels maintained during the winter and spring months leave little or no room to absorb the runoff from the mountains in May and June. “Without at least a meter and a half of space, there isn’t enough room to have proper flood control in place by the beginning of June,” said Lemisko. “It’s important to be able to have adequate flood control, and I think there is a way to have a reasonable compromise with all the conflict-

River levels on the rise

F

lows on the North and South Saskatchewan Rivers into Saskatchewan are rising in response to heavy precipitation that had fallen along the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains since Monday. River levels and velocities will rise accordingly. A stream flow advisory notice was issued late last week by the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority (SWA) warning of increased water levels. The SWA says South Saskatchewan River flows from the Alberta border into Lake Diefenbaker were predicted to rise from 500 m3/s to approximately 1200 m3/s, resulting in an increase in river levels of approximately two metres above Lake Diefenbaker. Outflows from Lake Diefenbaker will increase to approximately 360 m3/s.. The increased outflows will return river levels below Lake Diefenbaker and through Saskatoon to levels similar to that of mid May, or approximately 30 cm higher at the Saskatoon weir and 60 cm higher through the Moon Lake area than levels earlier this week. Watershed

Authority staff have notified interests below Lake Diefenbaker of the flow increase. Lake Diefenbaker levels are expected to rise approximately 0.8 m over the next week barring significant new precipitation. Flows on the North Saskatchewan River at the Alberta Border will rise from 400 m3/s to approximately 1000 m3/s, resulting in river level rise of approximately 1.5 m through North Battleford. By mid week, those same flows will move through Prince Albert again resulting in a rise in the river of approximately 1.5 m from current levels. Ouflows from Coddette and Tobin reservoirs are being increased in anticipation of increasing inflows. Preliminary estimates show over the next few days, releases from these reservoirs will be increased from 500m3/s to 1100 m3/s resulting in approximately a one metre increase in the river level. The Watershed Authority is monitoring weather and flow conditions and updates will be issued as warranted.

ing interests. Hydroelectricity is one of the best options we have for producing clean, reliable power for the province, but at the same time, you can’t allow destructive and unreasonable flooding downstream of the dam.” While Lemisko is encouraged with the ongoing consultations, he said one of the problems with the upcoming format is that the SWA will be meeting with each stakeholder group in isolation of others. The minutes of the meetings will be posted on the SWA website, but the summary and recommendations of the consultations won’t be available until this coming November.

New Plains rights some old wrongs

SK: Open Letter to Premier Wall Regarding Stadium Financing

There is no question that Premier Brad Wall was righting a wrong foisted upon rural Saskatchewan 19 years ago, although there is some question as to who should ultimately be held responsible for that wrong. Wall announced last week a new 200,000 square-foot surgical and outpatient centre for Southern Saskatchewan to be built in the shadows of the old Plains Hospital – now the Regina campus for SIAST. The new facility isn’t quite a hospital in that it will not provide emergency care for Regina and southern Saskatchewan residents. That will still be the roles of the Pasqua and General Hospital in the city’s downtown and core areas. But what it will provide is an impressive array of day surgeries, diagnostic imaging, pharmacy services, rehabilitation, outpatient cancer care and just about every other medical service that does not require an overnight stay. There is even some consideration of using the area as the landing pad for the STARS helicopter service simply because the location is safer for the aircraft. The roughly $50- to $60-million project will be built using the principles of the government’s LEAN efficiency model to make it as operationally efficient as possible, Wall explained. It will add five to six operating theatres for the Regina-Qu’Appelle Health Region. And while all will be considered public facilities, Wall acknowledged his government

By COLIN CRAIG Prairie Director

The following letter was sent to Premier Brad Wall on June 11 regarding provincial funding for a new stadium. A response will be posted once it is received. Dear Premier Wall, On behalf of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, I am writing to you today with some questions regarding provincial funding for the proposed football stadium in Regina. We would appreciate answers to the following questions at your earliest convenience: 1) The stadium has been reported in the media as costing $278 million. What is the real cost of the stadium proposal – in net present value, including interest costs? 2) The initial estimate for Winnipeg’s new stadium was $115 million, yet when tender results came in, it went up to $190 million. The new stadium estimate is $278 million. What guarantee do you have your estimate is accurate? Who would be accountable for cost overruns? 3) Will you consider releasing a detailed financing plan and let taxpayers vote on it in a referendum at the same time people vote in province-wide municipal elections this October? 4) Taxpayers were told the private sector would be involved in a new stadium. Why is there no private sector partner? Thank you for your attention to these questions. We look forward to your response. Sincerely, Colin Craig, Prairie Director

Provincial Politics

is open to all options including renting out surgical theatre space to private clinics that would be paid through the health system. Half the building costs for this project will come from the provincial government and the other half will come from the Hospitals of Regina Foundation that will immediately embark on fund-raising for project. Wall also stressed the benefits of its location, including the fact that it is being built on Crown land compared with the current Regina hospitals that would require the purchase of expensive private property for any expansion. In its location south of the Trans-Canada Highway, the hospital will offer easier access for people coming in from

out of town. Moreover, there will not be same parking problems that now exist around the General and Pasqua Hospitals – both of which will experience a significant easing of pressure on their facilities with the outpatient cancer and day-surgery components being removed from their responsibilities. In fact, Wall’s announcement often took on a political tone as the Premier repeatedly pointed out the benefit of the new facility’s location (one of the foremost arguments given for not closing the Plains hospital in 1993) and scolded the then NDP-Romanow government for its decision to close it. This does raise question of whose wrong Brad Wall was really righting. Yes, it was the NDP government that opted to close the Plains – something that seemed a particularly bad choice given the over-budget, $100-million cost of renovating the General Hospital and all the other

stresses that have been added to the city’s two remaining hospitals in the past two decades. But while the NDP has been rightfully criticized for this decision, it has to be noted that it was a decision made in the context of the near-bankruptcy the province faced as a result of the billion dollars a year the former Progressive Conservative government racked up in debt. That politics aside, however, this is good news for everyone including people throughout southern rural Saskatchewan. It doesn’t make up for the closure of 52 rural hospitals. Frankly, it doesn’t even make up for closure of the old Plains Hospital. But in two years or so southern Saskatchewan will what should be an excellent, more accessible, efficient facility that will better meet the needs of both rural and city folks needing health care. And that it surely does right some past wrongs.

Rain holds off long enough for Warman Gems to down Selects in fastball action Warman Gems 5 Westside AA Selects 2 By PAT PECKOVER

he Warman Gems faced off against the Saskatoon Westside AA Selects under a clear, sunny sky on June 4 in Saskatoon. With several games already this season having to be rescheduled because of rain and wet field conditions, the Gems were quite happy to get in a full game, noted coach Darwin Davis. The inter-division match — the Gems are in the Keith McLean Division while the Selects are in the Ken Gunn Division — saw the Gems jump out to an early lead thanks to a strong first inning. Riley Almasi, the second Warman batter, hit a double to right field and was then brought home thanks to a home run to deep centre by first baseman Brett Casey. Those were the only two runs scored in the first, although Gems Blaine Gabrysh and Casey Brooks both singled in an effort to keep the drive alive. Neither team scored in

the second inning, although Monty Scherr managed a single to centre field. The Selects got on the scoreboard in the third inning, with two runs after a single by the second batter and then a home run to right field by the fourth batter to tie the game at two. In the bottom half of the third, Brett Casey got a double and advanced to third on a grounder to the shortstop by Casey Brooks. Blaine Gabrysh drove Casey in with a single to centre field, giving the Gems a 3-2 lead. The top of the fourth inning began with a strike out by Warman pitcher Taylor Shaan, who replaced starter Todd Dyck, and ended with a strike out as well. Warman’s half of the fourth saw pinch hitter Mario Degagne take a walk to first before being taken out as the first half of a double play that saw Monty Scherr beat the throw to first on an infield grounder. Scherr then stole second and then came home on a single to shallow right field by Almasi. With Warman up 4-2, the inning ended when Almasi got caught stealing second. The fifth inning was

a very short one, as only one batter on each team made it on base — the first Select batter walked, while the third Warman batter singled to centre field. Both runners were left on base. In the sixth inning, it was three up and three down for the Saskatoon team, while twice that number made it to the plate for Warman. Left fielder Mike Stefaniuk singled to centre and then was driven in by Degagne’s single to centre. Monty Scherr hit an infield single, but the following two batters didn’t get on base, leaving the score at 5-2. Saskatoon sent only three players to the plate in the top of the seventh, none made it on base, so Warman didn’t take their last at bats, leaving the field with a 5-2 win. “We were in control the whole game,” said Davis afterwards. “The bats showed up in the first inning and everybody’s attitude was good.” Warman deliberately played every player at the game, wanting to see how the team is shaping up, Davis noted. “Nobody sits the whole

Reid made the throw to first, getting the third out of the inning and the last of the game as the Gems collected a 5-2 win over the Selects. game right now,” he explained. “This is only our fourth game because of rainouts and we want everybody to play.” Davis was also pleased

with Warman’s pitchers. “We started our third string pitcher (Todd Dyck) and he went three innings and then we brought in Shaan to finish it,” Davis stated.

Warman’s next scheduled games are on June 14 against the Saskatoon Allied Denture Masters and on June 19 against the Saskatoon Jr. A Bullets.

s the calendar flipped to the second week of the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ 2012 training camp, one career ended while another one was extended. Which do you want first? Let’s start with the retirement. Highly-touted wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett, a former second round pick of the Carolina Panthers and record-setter at USC, missed all of rookie camp due to travel issues. He showed up for day one of main camp last Sunday and participated lightly in drills. However unfortunately for all of us, that’s the last we saw of him. An injury kept him on the sidelines for the rest of the week and on Thursday coach Corey Chamblin confirmed that Jarrett decided to retire.

RIDER INSIDER ROD PEDERSEN

Voice of the Riders Roughriders Radio Network

It appeared his heart wasn’t in it and he wasn’t prepared to put in the work which the others were. See ya! As for the other announcement, when the Riders practiced Saturday in Saskatoon, team President Jim Hopson announced a one year contract extension for General Manager Brendan Taman. It was appropriate, I suppose, because it was in Taman’s hometown. However at first glance the tim-

ing seemed a bit odd. Taman was precariously situated in the last year of his contract facing a make or break season. Should the Riders implode he would assuredly be out of a job. However if the club improved to the point of making the playoffs or even hosting a playoff game, you know he’d be rewarded with a new deal. However Jim Hopson, who’s made no secret of his admiration for Taman’s abilities, said ‘why wait?’ and finished

the contract. At a closer look Taman’s hay is already in the barn, so to speak. This winter he oversaw the hiring of a new coaching staff, vastly overhauled the roster (as we discussed last week), harvested a wealth of import rookie talent and signed his Canadian draft picks. Mission accomplished. Go to Hawaii and put your feet up Brendan! Now the onus is on rookie coach Corey Chamblin to work this group into a contender. Taman has bought the groceries and now it’s up to Chamblin to make the meal. Bon appetit! It all starts with the first preseason game of the year in BC this week and once it kicks off we can finally stop talking about last year. Enjoy the ride.

The 20th Annual Warman Diamond Rodeo & Family Days held June 8-10 was another success, even if the weather didn’t co-operate and resulted in the cancellation of Sunday’s performance due to safety concerns inside the rodeo arena. A full slate of Canadian Cowboys Association competitors from across the prairies and some U.S. states chased thousands of dollars in prize money to the delight of a full house on Friday evening. Pictured clockwise from top left: Clayton Strutt of Brock, SK scored 75 points in Bareback aboard Fancy Nancy, good enough for second place prize money; The Graham Sisters trick riding duo pose for a picture with a couple of young fans; 2012 Saskatchewan High School Rodeo Champion Wyatt Hayes of Val Marie, SK clocked in a 9.7-second run in Tie Down Roping, earning him a second place cheque at the cashier’s window; Mike Gordon of Maple Creek, SK had a rough landing after being bucked off Whiskey Girl in Saddle Bronc; The Graham Sisters trick riding duo of Krista and Amber thrilled the audience during intermission with several daring stunts including a jump through a ring of fire; and Renie Schnitzler of Vanscoy turned in a 13.78 second Ladies Barrel Racing run. Traci Den Brok of Esterhazy, SK won the event with a time of 13.32 seconds.

Symptoms of depression shouldn’t be ignored By TERRY PUGH

N

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

early 10 per cent of Canadians will experience severe depression or some other form of mood disorder at some point in their lives, according to the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA). And while the incidence of clinical depression appears to be on the rise, there are also hopeful signs that the stigma associated with seeking help is becoming less of an obstacle for people suffering from depression. Dr. Rob Billington, a family physician at the West Winds Health Clinic in Saskatoon, estimates that roughly 50 per cent of his regular patients have some form of mood disorder as a major component of their character. “Family physicians are the main point of entry into the health care system,” Billington explained in a recent interview. “So that’s a critical point for diagnosis and treatment of mental health issues.” Billington, who noted he is speaking as an individual physician and not on behalf of the Saskatoon Health Region, trained as a resident at Royal University Hospital and recently joined the Academic Family Medicine training program at the university. He teaches second and third year undergraduate medical students in addition to having his own patient list at the West Winds Community Clinic. Billington said that over the next 15 years, depression and mood disorders will become the most common reason people will see their primary health care provider. “The stigma associated with mental health issues is slowly being removed,” explained Billington. “People are not as afraid to talk about it now as they were even ten years ago. The reality is that this is a real problem, and it’s not going to go away by simply being ignored.”

Warning Signs

DEPRESSION SYMPTOMS Billington said there are nine telltale warning signs of depression, but said one of the key factors is the length of time the symptoms last. “Everyone goes through different moods, and experiences stages of grief during traumatic times,” he explained. “When things become a problem is when they affect your family life, your school, your work, and so on. Then it is time to do something about it.” Billington said depression is not always simply sadness. “That is the main thing we look for,” he said. “But you could also be irritable or apathetic or withdrawn, or you could experience disturbances in your sleep, for example.” He said sudden weight gain or weight loss, as well as bouts of hyperactivity, can also signal depression. He added there is a proven genetic correlation between generations, where people from the same family are more susceptible to mental health issues. Traumatic events can also trigger depression, even for those people who normally are able to cope with high amounts of stress. “There are normal stages of grief, but if you’re stuck in one of those stages, that’s a warning sign,” he said. The most serious aspect of clinical depression comes if the sufferer is contemplating suicide or having serious thoughts of hurting themselves or others. HELP AVAILABLE Billington said there are many avenues of help available,

ranging from family physicians, professional counselling, pharmaceutical drugs and informal support systems of relatives and friends. “There isn’t just one method that works for everyone and for every situation,” he explained. “It’s probably best to use a combination of things. But people are being treated successfully, and for a doctor, to be able to help someone in this type of situation is one of the most rewarding things you can do.” He said psychological counselling works, as does pharmaceutical therapy in some cases.

Dr. Rob Billington says there are hopeful signs that the stigma of mental health issues is becoming less, as people become more aware of the problem.

Billington said good support networks are important. “Some people go for counselling by going out with a friend or relative for coffee where they can talk about their situation,” he said. “It’s also been shown that regular exercise three or four times a week can improve one’s

mental health.” In addition, animal therapy - such as having a pet like a dog or cat - is helpful in some cases. There are also professional counsellors available through the Saskatoon Mental Health Centralized Intake.

But Billington said the best place to start is by talking honestly and openly to your family physician. “It’s always better to come in if you’re not sure, and to be told that you’re not depressed, than it is to not come in at all,” he said.

Symptoms of Depression If you (or someone you know) have some of the following signs for more than several weeks, you may be experiencing a depressive illness. Symptoms include: • Loss of interest and a lack of pleasure in activities, including sex • Withdrawal from social situations • Ongoing feelings of sadness, anxiety, worthlessness, hopelessness, guilt • Changes in appetite, or an unexplained fluctuation in weight • Lack of energy, complaints of fatigue • Sleep disturbances (insomnia or excessive sleeping) • Loss of focus, decreased concentration, forgetfulness • Complaints of physical ill health with no identifiable cause • Thoughts of suicide (Canadian Mental Health Association (www.cmha.ca)

in fall, fundraising effort now underway By TERRY PUGH

A

base of operations for the Shock Trauma Air Rescue Service (STARS) is scheduled to be in place in Saskatoon by the end of 2012, and fundraising efforts are currently underway to make it operational. STARS is already operating out of Regina, according to Robin Bellamy, Development Officer for STARS. In a presentation to a recent Martensville City Council meeting, Bellamy said the air rescue system is aimed at enhancing the current ground ambulance service,

rather than replacing it. “STARS has been operating in Alberta for the past 26 years,” said Bellamy. “The concept actually began in the early 1970s in Vietnam. During that war, it was apparent that more lives were saved by getting trauma patients to MASH units faster, and helicopters were the ideal form of transporting seriously injured patients.” Bellamy said a Calgary doctor started the service in Alberta using a rented helicopter and hiring a pilot. Since then, the service has

grown and evolved to the point where the specially-equipped helicopters are basically airborne operating rooms that can carry two pilots, a paramedic and a trauma nurse. “The important thing is to get the injured person into the helicopters as soon as possible,” said Bellamy. “Once they’re on board, they basically get the same care as they would in a hospital.” There are two classes of helicopters, Bellamy explained. The smaller version has a range of 250 kilometers and maximum speed of 250 kilometers per hour. The larger helicopters hold twice the number of patients, have a 375 kilometer range and a top speed of 375 kilometers per hour. Bellamy gave numerous examples of how STARS helicopters have saved lives by being able to reach critically injured patients in remote areas. “Over the last 26 years in Alberta and BC, STARS has flown over 22,000 missions,” he said. “Forty-nine per cent of those were traffic accidents.” He said the emergency call dispatch centre in Alberta is able to get a rescue copter off the ground less than 10 minutes from the time the call comes in. The goal is to achieve the same results in Saskatchewan, he said. Funds have been donated by many large corporations, including $2.7 million from Potash Corp, $5.5 million from Mosaic, and another $5.5 million from an oil company. “The private sector has contributed significantly,” he said. “About 50 per cent of the money we receive comes from taxpayers through the federal and provincial governments, but the other 50 per cent comes from private sector contributions and personal donations.” Bellamy said the STARS Foundation relies heavily on donations, pointing out that a donation of $5,400 will help make one patient’s mission possible. “This includes the medical and aviation crew, as well as the necessary medical supplies and helicopter fuel need form the time a STARS helicopter and crew leaves the base, arrives on scene and provides critical care and medical transportation for a critically ill or injured patient,” he said. Current fundraising campaigns include a home lottery as well as sales of STARS

calendars for $30 each. “We’re not asking for handouts,” he said. “We’re trying every avenue to raise the $12 million we need each year to operate.” A recent resolution passed by the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities committed RMs in the province to pay a voluntary contribution of up to $2 per capita annually toward the STARS program. Bellamy said the STARS service also

proved its worth in Manitoba during recent flooding, and that province is now looking to have STARS expand there. Ron Dufresne, Vice-President of Saskatchewan Operations for STARS, said the current operations base in Regina is functioning during daylight hours, seven days a week. “Currently in Continued on Page 17 Please see “STARS LOTTERY”

AQUARIUS Pinching pennies is what this week is all about, Aquarius. Look for ways you can cut back, and you’ll see a difference in your bottom line. PISCES Oh dear, Pisces. An organization is in dire need. Find the time to help and get a friend in on the action. A little planning will go a long way toward making a goal a reality. ARIES Heads up, Aries. All is not as it seems, not by a long shot. You’ve been much too busy to notice but that must come to an end now. TAURUS Crazy impulses take hold, and you break out of your shell big time. No one knows what to think, but who cares, Taurus. It’s your turn to have some fun. GEMINI Footloose and fancy free is a good way to describe you this week, Gemini. You do what you want when you want, and all gets done as scheduled. CANCER Pronto, Cancer. The decision must be made and it must be made now. Do your homework. Special treats make for a weekend of glee. Excellent! LEO Dream on, Leo. You have so much to do right now you can’t possibly take on something else. Learn the word “no” and mean it. A phone call clues you in. VIRGO You’ve danced around the issue long enough, Virgo. Get in there and be the mediator you were always meant to be. A deadline is extended. LIBRA Home improvement plans take a back seat to your love life this week, as romantic gestures get the home fires burning. Get ready for some magic, Libra. SCORPIO Want it, Scorpio? Come and get it, and it will be yours. A well-known fact turns out to be fiction. Don’t let it put a damper on a festive occasion. SAGITTARIUS Charge, Sagittarius! Full speed ahead.

Regina we land at the Regina airport and then use Regina EMS – ground ambulance – to transport people to the Regina General Hospital,” he said. “In Saskatoon, we have to yet to determine a temporary site, but we’re working with the Royal University Hospital, Saskatoon Health Region and the University of Saskatchewan to determine a temporary landing site. In the interim we would land at the Saskatoon airport.” Dufresne conceded it’s not an ideal situation to have to transport critically-injured trauma patients by ground ambulance across the city of Saskatoon, especially if the trip has to be made during peak traffic periods. “But we’re looking for a closer, temporary site to the Royal University Hospital,” he said. “Heliport infrastructure is important and it is a priority, but if we were to wait for the heliport infrastructure to be built prior to launching any helicopters or missions, that would take a lot of time. We felt it was better to launch the service and work toward a solution in a priority manner. The reality is that heliports fall under the jurisdiction of the provincial Ministry of Health and the various health regions throughout the province. They’re not a STARS responsibility.”

The success of STARS depends on the community… the people of Saskatchewan. All the proceeds from the lottery will stay in Saskatchewan.

Your Support Saves Lives!

JOHN COWAN Saskatoon “I really appreciate what STARS did for me when I was working in Alberta. STARS airlifted me after a car accident in the summer of 2008. It’s very exciting to know this service will be available in Saskatchewan now. STARS is going to make a big difference in Saskatchewan, especially in rural and smaller centres.”

LARRY HUNT Moose Jaw “It is a great asset for us to have STARS in Saskatchewan and we really need the service here. I was airlifted by STARS nine years ago after my wife and I were in a car accident in Alberta. I’ve been working to help STARS ever since. We’re ecstatic about having the program in Saskatchewan now. I wouldn’t be around if it wasn’t for STARS. We are so thankful for STARS.”

STARS is a non-profit charitable organization. It provides helicopter air ambulance services for patients living, working or traveling throughout Saskatchewan whose outcomes depend on rapid, specialized, intensive care and transportation. Flying from Regina now...from Saskatoon this fall.

he Langham Theatrical Copmany is changing things up this fall. “We’re introducing a gala opening night for invited guests this year,” explained Sela Balzer, Artistic Director for the community-based theatre group. “It’s kind of a celebration to kick off the production - and it’s also a way for the the cast and crew to have some informal fun with the audience after the play.” The opening gala combines a formal evening with an informal post-play party. where the cast can mingle with the audience while still in costume - and even in character. Balzer says she was initially reluctant to alter a formula that’s worked well for more than 15 years, but she changed her mind after seeing how well the idea worked at a community theatre in Ontario. “I’ve always had a rule where the cast and crew stay in the back,” she explained. “I always thought it was better to help the actors keep their focus. But when my daughter auditioned for a play in a community theatre in Ontario, and I flew down to watch her performance, I was very impressed with their gala opening when family and friends were the first to see the play on opening night. It was a wonderful experience, and it’s everyone’s favourite evening. I thought it would be nice to try it here too.” The opening Limited nightmodelalshown lows all the volunteers to see the performance at the same time, noted Balzer, adding it greatly simplifies the scheduling. “We have a lot of people who volunteer by taking tickets, washing dishes, and other tasks behind the scenes,” she said.

Fire department adding new rescue unit to fleet New deputy chief named, budget approved by council By TERRY PUGH tpugh@ccgazette.ca

Despite the rainy weather on Saturday, Kidsville went ahead as planned at the Warman Diamond Arena instead of outdoors at Lions Park. Among other activities, children were able to try their hand at roping, children were able to jump away the afternoon in an inflatable castle, have their faces painted as well as take part in stick horse races.

t’s been a busy year so far for the Warman Fire Department. Warman Fire Chief Gord Thompson says the department has responded to 83 fire and medical calls in the community and surrounding area since the beginning of January, 2012. That compares to 154 incidents in all of 2011. “We’ve been extremely busy this spring, dealing with grassfires and helping out neighbouring communities,” Thompson said during a presentation to a ratepayers’ information meeting at the Brian King Centre in Warman on Tuesday, June 5. “We have an excellent mutual aid system between communities in North Corman Park. We’ve been the beneficiary on several occasions, and we’ve also helped out in other communities as well.” Thompson said the biggest incident to date was a large grassfire near Wanuskewin Heritage Park, which would have devastated that site and damaged a lot of property in the area if it had not been for the mutual aid agreement in place. Among the personnel changes at the department has been the recent appointment of Kevin Schwartz to the position of Deputy Fire Chief. Schwartz, a long-time member of the volunteer department, most recently served in the capacity of Captain. Over the last year, a total of 6 new recruits were added to the ranks, bringing the total up to 25. “But unfortunately, one of them later resigned, so we’re down to 24 again,” explained Thompson. “This will be a busy year for us as we train the new recruits to be qualified for the equipment and

The Warman Fire Dept. is recruiting and training new firefighters, including six to bring the contingent up to 25 tools we use.” The department trains on a weekly basis, and since most of the calls they respond to are vehicle accidents, much of that training involves using specialized extrication tools. The training takes place at the fire hall. The budget for the fire department was approved by Warman Council earlier this spring, and Thompson said funds have been allocated for the purchase of a new rescue

vehicle. The planning process to design the vehicle is already well-underway, he added, and the truck should be added to the fleet by the first quarter of the new year. The people who join the fire department are very committed to the training and to their community, he noted. “They’re a very dedicated group of men and women,” he said. “We ask a lot from the people who join our department.”

Grade 7 and 8 students in Martensville met with the architects from Aodbt Architecture and Interior Design on Tuesday, June 5 to provide their input into an expanded Martensville High School. The addition to the existing school will add approximately 50,000 square feet to the building and will cost an estimated $26.3 million. The project is slated to be completed in 2016.

Martensville students provide input on high school project By BRENDA ERICKSON Prairie Spirit SD

T

he consultative process to design and plan the expanded high school project in Martensville has already begun. Martensville students met with the project’s architects on June 5 and 6 to talk about what they would like to see in this new facility. The expansion and renovation of Martensville High School is expected to more than double the size of the current facility, adding approximately 50,000 square feet to the building. The provincial Ministry of Education – which gave approval in May to move this project into the design stage – has estimated a cost of $26.3 million for the construction and renovation project. This project is scheduled to be completed in 2016. Approximately 30 Grade 7

and 8 students from both elementary schools in Martensville met with architects from Aodbt Architecture and Interior Design on Tuesday, June 5, to discuss what they like about their school, what they don’t like and what they hope for in this new expanded facility. The team of architects met with students from Grades 9 through 12 on Wednesday, June 6. The consultation process will also involve staff, parents and community members. The students agreed that more space for eating lunch and spending time with friends is a priority for them in the new high school facility. They also would like to see more natural lighting and wider hallways. They suggested having more gym space and a cafeteria in the expanded high school. The architects will collate all student input and create a report to be used in the planning and design process.

“The Board and the architect are very interested in student input into this project,” said Kerry Donst, Facilities Planner for Prairie Spirit School Division. Donst told the students that it will take one year to plan and design the building and two more years to build the new parts of the facility. Once the expansion is completed, the students will move into the new part of the building and the old high school facility will be extensively renovated. The renovation phase will take another year to complete. Once the project is entirely completed in 2016, it is expected that Grade 7 and 8 students from the City’s two elementary schools will move to the high school facility to alleviate the overcrowding in those schools. This grade reconfiguration will depend on the enrolment numbers at that time.

Volunteers do whatever it takes to help send kids to camp By TERRY PUGH tpugh@ccgazette.ca

S

ean Gilchrist sacrificed his curly locks for a good cause last week. The marketing manager for Tim Hortons restaurants had his head shaved as part of the coffeeshop chain’s “Camp Day” fundraiser on Wednesday, June 6. The shearing, performed at the Tim Hortons Martensville location, drew an impromptu round of applause from customers, staff and restaurant owners when it was done. Through it all, Gilchrist never lost his grin. Clark and Camille Barzeele were smiling too. The owners of the Martensville franchise were on hand to watch Camille’s mother, Patsy Massey, wield the barber shears. “It’s a day that everybody looks forward to,” explained Clark Barzeele in an interview. “One hundred per cent of all the sales from coffee during Camp Day goes towards sending underprivileged kids to camp. It’s all about helping kids gain self-confidence and learn leadership skills. For the kids, it’s a life-changing experience.” Tim Hortons operates a network of 6 camps, including 5 in Canada and 1 in the United States. Barzeele said the company is looking to add another couple of camps in the near future. The selection of kids who will attend the camps are done through local volunteer-based organizations like Big Brothers and Big Sisters, he noted. “Camp Day is really a rewarding day for everyone involved,” he said. “It’s a day when everybody has a lot of fun, and we all try and raise as much money as we can. In the past I’ve had my head shaved on Camp Day, and this year Sean stepped up and volunteered to do it as a way of raising additional funds.” Barzeele said the goal for Tim Hortons locations is to raise enough money to cover the costs of sending two kids each. At the Martensville and Warman Tim Hortons locations, local businesspeople and elected oficials could be seen behind the counter selling coffee to customers. The Tim Hortons location in Warman, owned by Janna Martin, also did a brisk business, despite having to rely on a number of raw recruits. Warman Mayor Sheryl Spence jokingly explained to one patron that she was “in training” as she counted out change. Clark’s Crossing Gazette publisher Terry Jenson also put in a shift,

GOODBYE CURLS!

and said afterward he had a “whole new appreciation” for the people taking a neverending stream of orders during the morning coffee rush. Warman RCMP detachment personnel also volunteered their time to put in shifts. Constable Monique Cooper and Jordan Paradis, a Grade 6 student from Valley Manor Elementary School in Martensville, were staffing a fundraising table in the lobby of the Warman Tim Hortons. The RCMP detachment office is directly across the street from the Tim Hortons in Warman “We drop by here once in a while anyway,” joked Cooper.

Employment numbers in province at record level There are more people working in Saskatchewan than ever before, according to the latest employment numbers released June 8 by Statistics Canada. Employment increased by 10,400 people from May 2011 to May 2012, to an all-time high of 546,300. Saskatchewan’s year-over-year growth rate of 1.9 per cent was the second highest among the provinces, behind Alberta. Saskatchewan’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate in May decreased to 4.5 per

cent from 4.9 per cent a month earlier - tied with Alberta for the lowest rate in the country, and well below the national unemployment rate of 7.3 per cent. “These positive numbers reflect the province’s continuing economic momentum,” Economy Minister Bill Boyd said. “With record weekly earnings for workers and high optimism by businesses to expand their operations, future job prospects in Saskatchewan are strong.” Boyd made the comments

today at the headquarters of Magna Electric Corporation of Regina, an electrical projects group. The company has grown by 500 per cent since 2007 and plans to hire another 100 employees including engineers, electricians and labourers. Other highlights from the report: The labour force reached an all-time high of 571,600. Full-time employment reached a record high of 448,400 for the month of May, up 9,800 from a year ago.

Off-reserve Aboriginal employment was up by 1,600 (4.2 per cent) for 12 consecutive months of year-over-year increases. Regina’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate of 3.9 per cent is the lowest among major Canadian cities while Saskatoon’s jobless rate is 5.6 per cent, 8th lowest in the country. Boyd said there are still plenty of opportunities for people looking for work in Saskatchewan, with more than 11,600 job vacancies currently posted on ww.saskjobs.ca.

Province reducing greenhouse gas emissions

C

anada’s Environment Minister, the Honourable Peter Kent, and Saskatchewan’s Minister of Environment, the Honourable Ken Cheveldayoff, announced today that they are working towards an equivalency agreement on coalfired electricity greenhouse gas regulations. Both governments wish to avoid duplication of effort to control greenhouse gas emissions, and are working together to ensure that industry does not face two sets of regulations. An equivalency agreement would see the federal regulations stand down in favour of a provincial regulation, as long as the provincial regulation achieves an equivalent or better environmental outcome. “The Governments of Canada and Saskatchewan are steadfast in our commitment to address climate change,” said Minister Kent. “We remain focused on our mutual goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from coal-fired elec-

tricity, but want to ensure that Saskatchewan has the flexibility to choose an approach that best suits its circumstances.” “Saskatchewan looks forward to working with the federal government to negotiate an equivalency agreement that reflects our unique circumstances, and advances the technology and innovation required to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” said Minister Cheveldayoff. “This agreement will provide the flexibility needed to implement clean

coal and carbon capture and storage technology at Boundary Dam 3 and other coal-fired plants in Saskatchewan.” Saskatchewan is the second province to work with the Government of Canada on an equivalency agreement for coal-fired electricity regulations, with the Governments of Canada and Nova Scotia having made a similar announcement earlier this spring. In August 2011, the federal government proposed new regulations for the electricity

Native prairie week proclaimed Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart and Environment Minister Ken Cheveldayoff have jointly proclaimed June 17 to 23 as Saskatchewan’s 14th Annual Native Prairie Appreciation Week. Native Prairie Appreciation Week (NPAW), the only week in North America that is dedicated to raising awareness and appreciation of native grasslands, began in 1999

by the Saskatchewan Prairie Conservation Action Plan (SK PCAP). The week provides an opportunity for Saskatchewan residents to recognize and celebrate the value of native prairie ecosystems and their importance to Saskatchewan’s agricultural and environmental sectors. A “Get Out and Smell the Prairies” checklist is available on the SK PCAP website (www.pcap-sk.org) .

sector that will apply a stringent performance standard to new coal-fired electricity generation units and those coalfired units that have reached the end of their economic life. Final regulations are expected to be published later this summer. Tackling emissions from coalfired electricity generation, which represents 11% of Canada’s total greenhouse gas emissions, will go a long way towards meeting Canada’s target of a 17% reduction in total greenhouse gas emissions below 2005 levels, by 2020.
