T

he fundraising campaign to bring official recognition to Clark’s Crossing Road is gathering steam. Margaret Hein-Wiebe, a member of the Clark’s Crossing Historical Committee, says letters to local businesses and landowners in the area are starting to yield tangible results in the form of sizable donations. The committee successfully applied to the RM of Corman Park council last winter to have Township Road 381 designated as Clark’s Crossing Road. The area, which includes the historic Penner School building, was once home to a railway station, general store and post office from 1905 to the mid-1950s. HeinWiebe says having the road

bear the name of the former community helps keep the memory of pioneer families who settled the area alive. In addition to raising funds to reimburse the RM of Corman Park for the Clark’s Crossing Road signs, the committee is also looking to erect an historic cairn and plaque on the site of the former railway station, about a kilometer south of the present Pioneer elevator on the CN track. So far, the committee has sent out 14 letters to industrial businesses in the area, and have had several positive responses. “It’s interesting to see how many of these people know what’s going on from reading the Clark’s Crossing Gazette,” said Hein-Wiebe. “While others don’t even realize that there is a community name for this

area that has some significance. It has been a great opportunity to talk about the community and the history that we have, and the value of preserving that heritage. I believe we are doing our ancestors and our children a favour with this project.” Hein-Wiebe said the most recent donations were from Q-Line Trucking, a local business; and from landowners Don and Gladys (Penner) Wiebe. “Gladys was born on the farm at the corner of Clarks Crossing Road and Warman Road,” explained Hein-Wiebe. “She is a descendent of the Penners after whom the local school was named.” Contributions to the Clark’s Crossing Road signage campaign can be made by contacting Margaret Hein-Wiebe at meheinwiebe@sasktel.net .

Food Grains charity auction continues to have an impact 32nd annual event raises $96,000 in battle against hunger, poverty By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

O

ver the past 32 years, an annual auction held on a farm near Hague has raised more than $1 million for the Canadian Food Grains Bank (CFGB) and its efforts to relieve hunger and poverty around the world. Sol Janzen, Director of Human Resources for the CFGB, told a gathering of people at the opening of the Sask Valley Food Grains Bank auction on June 30 that the auction actually pre-dates the national organization, which celebrates its 30th anniversary next year. Janzen said the CFGB raised over $15 million last year, despite many farmers across Canada experiencing a difficult spring. “We had a record amount in donations,” he noted. “We were a bit worried in the beginning because of the flooding early in the growing season. But in the end, the crops turned out pretty good and prices for most commodities were strong.” Janzen said $15 million in donations translates into emergency food supplies for 2.1 million people around the world. “With those funds, we’re able to purchase enough grain to fill 450 hopper cars,” he stated. “That train would be eight kilometers long.” The CFGB recently signed a new agreement with the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), which commits the federal government to $125 million in annual matching grants over the next five years. “That means that for every dollar raised by the CFGB, up to $125 million per year, the federal government will match those funds,” said Janzen. “That will go a long way to helping feed hungry people around the

world.” Janzen noted there are 900 million people globally who don’t have enough to eat. “That’s an obscene number,” he stated. “In many parts of the world, there are natural weather-related causes for famine, such as widespread drought. The Sahel region of Africa, for example, has been particularly hard hit, and roughly 18 million people there are in desperate straits.” He said in rural areas, most of the subsistence farms depleted their resources and were on the verge of mass starvation. However, he added, things are looking up now that CFGB food rations have started arriving. “Emergency food supplies are not the solution,” he continued. “They’re just a temporary measure.” He said the CFGB is working on long-term solutions to the hunger crisis. He pointed to an area of Ethiopia where the CFGB has been involved since the 1970s and 1980s. An irrigation project to divert water for 150 acres of fruit trees was started in the early days with an initial investment of $150,000. “Now, 27 years later, there are over 600 acres under irrigation producing mangoes, oranges and other crops,” he said. “It is literally an oasis

Sol Janzen speaks at the 32nd annual auction on June 30 in the desert. That is what your donation – your gift – creates.” The sale, conducted by auctioneer Richard Mireau of Langham, was held at Walter Wiebe’s farm south of Hague and raised $96,000. A special livestock sale featured bred heifers, open heifers, heifer calves and registered and grade Holsteins. Items up for sale at he auction included meats, homemade foods, machinery, tools, lumber, antiques, quilts, crafts, vehicles and household items.

A two-day Pow Wow at Wanuskewin Heritage Park north of Saskatoon on Wednesday, June 20 and Thursday, June 21 drew a large crowd of spectators, as well as hundreds of competitors in all classes of dance and drumming. The intricatelydesigned costumes of the dancers provided vibrant splashes of colour to the festivities.

The Canada Day long weekend got off to a rough start for the occupants of one vehicle that was travelling on Highway 16 near the Dalmeny Access Road. Warman RCMP say the mishap occurred when a Ford pickup truck executed an unsafe lane change, cutting off a Ford Explorer SUV. The Explorer managed to avoid the truck but veered into

the ditch and rolled, resulting in a trip to the hospital for one male and one female. Their injuries were believed to be non life-threatening. Police say seat belts were in use at the time and that alcohol and speed were not factors in the rollover. The driver of the truck, a 28-year-old man from Alberta, was charged under the Traffic Safety Act with making an unsafe lane change.

Alberta MP speaks well for rural Sask.

C O M M E N T A R Y

The biggest problem in politics is how quickly those we elect forget where they came from and whom they were elected to represent. But maybe one of the problems is that we don’t give enough credit to those that do remember. In that vein, Saskatchewan’s Conservative MPs could certainly learn a lesson from their Alberta caucus colleague MP Brent Rathgeber. Rathgeber’s name is likely unfamiliar to most of you, but the backbench Conservative MP for Edmonton-St. Albert is actually a Saskatchewan boy who hails from the Melville area and received his law degree from the University of Saskatchewan. And in a recent posting on his website entitled “Of Orange Juice and Limos” Rathgeber made it clear he hasn’t forgotten his Saskatchewan roots. “Last month, I returned to Grenfell, Saskatchewan for a family funeral,” Rathgeber stated in his June 26 post. “The event was, of course, tragically sad. However, returning to small town Saskatchewan is always an eye opening experience... “There is a certain amount of common sense amongst prairie folk, an instinctive wisdom and moral compass that is frequently absent in the hustling city of Edmonton and in the Ottawa Bubble.” The Edmonton-St. Albert MP said in the posting that he really had no explanation for the hometown folks that could justify the recent story of a $600,000 overtime bill limousine drivers racked up in 2011 while waiting for cabinet ministers. “The $600,000 in limousine driver overtime did not play well with the small prairie town sensibilities,” Rathgeber wrote. Also of concern to the Grenfell residents, Rathgeber wrote, was the “well publicized reports of the misadventures of CIDA Minister Bev Oda, who on a Business Trip to London, charged taxpayers for $16 orange juice, $1000 a day limousine service and an upgrade to a hotel that allowed smoking.”

Transparency improvements needed By COLIN CRAIG

Canadian Taxpayers Association

What information should the government let you see? Should they put your friend’s health records and the kid next door’s report card on the internet for all to see? Clearly no. But what if a non-profit taxpayers’ watchdog group like the Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) is refused access to juicy details about a controversial government expenditure? Shouldn’t those details come to light? Obviously the answer is “yes,” but unfortunately information requests to the government sometimes receive a “no” when they shouldn’t. Why you should care? If a media outlet or watchdog group like ours can’t investigate something that’s going on, then we can’t inform the public. And if people don’t know about something, how can they hold those in office accountable? For example, the CTF regularly fills out forms to get access to records on the amount of sick time used by provincial government employees. We then compare the results – which consistently show higher sick time in government than outside government. The information is then used to illustrate how there is room to reduce expenses and then cut taxes. On the whole, we’ve found various provincial departments, crowns and other agencies to be pretty co-operative as of late when it comes to freedom of information requests we’ve filed. But there is still room for improvement. Consider an issue that arose with the Information Commissioner, the province’s independent officer responsible for helping people obtain government documents. Last year he helped a citizen with a request for some information, but had to wait 16 months for the documents. Requests are supposed to be answered within 30 days. It’s not right the original applicant and Information Commissioner had to wait almost a year and a half for the information. What Saskatchewan needs to do is implement something other provinces have done and that is to give the Information Commissioner the power to order government departments and divisions to release information. That way there wouldn’t be any stonewalling or delaying the release of information. Right now, all Saskatchewan’s Information Commissioner can do is to stomp his feet and ask a bureaucrat nicely to release for the information. Opportunities for transparency improvements don’t end there. Once cabinet is done each weekly meeting, records from that meeting are sealed shut for 25 years before the public can see what occurred behind closed doors. The premier could improve transparency by eliminating the waiting period altogether or by cutting it down dramatically. After all, municipal governments also make important decisions, but their documents are routinely made available to the public. The premier could also follow the federal government’s lead and put more information online about cabinet ministers’ expenses, grants handed out to various groups and contracts. As Premier Brad Wall considers his legacy as premier, he already has some pretty good accomplishments – paying down debt, reducing taxes and cutting wait times in hospitals to name a few. However, in the coming years he should aim to make Saskatchewan the most transparent government in the country. Now there’s a pretty clear goal.

Saskatchewan Conservative MPs like Ritz were first elected as Reformers, promising to clean up the mess left behind those Liberals who claimed to be “entitled to their entitlements.” But are any of our Saskatchewan Conservative MPs _ all of whom represent common sense, small town folk like the people of Grenfell - saying anything about these outrageous federal spending decisions?

Surely, there are taxis available in Ottawa.” He concluded that most of the people in Grenfell “have never ridden in a limo” and “none of them have ever drunk $16 orange juice”. “Surely, they would appreciate if government took more care in spending their money,” he said. The sad reality is that the best one can expect from Rathgeber is continued obscurity on the Conservative backbenches. Such honesty will not unseat from cabinet the likes of Alberta colleague Jason Kenney, whose nasty recent description of the Alberta deputy premier seems to fit the style of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s cabinet ministers.

Horse owners association seeks approval of equine park A proposal for an ‘equine-friendly’ community with an area for horse trails currently up for discussion By HILARY KLASSEN

hilaryklassen@gmail.com

H

orse lovers in South Corman Park (SCP) may have moved one step closer to realizing their “Field of Dreams.” The South Corman Park Horse Owners Association (SCPHOA) wants a 61-acre parcel of land just south of the South Corman Park School to be designated as an equine park. The land is currently zoned as a municipal reserve, and has been since 1984. The group outlined its plans during a public meeting at the South Corman Park School on Wednesday, June 27. The horse owners are seeking community input on the proposed park. Horse owners make up a large percentage of the population of South Corman Park, according to the SCPHOA. These residents love to ride, but end up taking to the roads or ditches to exercise their horses. Right now, the ditches are full of water. Roads in the area have become busier in recent years and the safety of riders is a growing concern. In addition, riders sometimes encounter a lack of knowledge of how to respond to horses. Honking horns, ATVs, charging dogs, and other distractions can startle a horse, causing it to bolt.

SCPHOA VISION Colleen Kellett and Charlene Dalen-Brown of the SCPHOA first began to dream about a designated safe place to ride horses about six months ago. Their vision is to have South Corman Park designated as an ‘equine friendly’ community, with riding trails leading to a central equine activity park on the municipal reserve. The park would have arenas, a jogging track and a competitive trail course, but

would not be limited to strictly equine uses. Other users such as walkers, bikers and dog agility groups would be welcome and incorporated into the planning. In the March newsletter for Ebon Stables, the SCPHOA stated: “we have approached the RM of Corman Park planner with the premise that as future development is designed to complement the existing community, equestrian concerns should be requested and addressed. We were very pleased to find out that our suggestions and concerns were not only supported but the chief planner encouraged horse owners to band together to develop our future vision of South Corman Park!” With the encouragement of the RM Council, Kellett and Dalen-Brown called a public meeting to be held in the South Corman Park School gym, to gauge community sentiment regarding their plan. They came prepared with a concept plan, a map of South Corman Park with horse owners’ land highlighted in orange, the proposed park highlighted in purple, and a PowerPoint presentation. The park is envisioned as a “natural setting with low growing native grasses and tree bluffs. Maintenance would be minimal and startup costs would be limited to [Shand] trees and volunteer labour.” SCPHOA proposes to acquire a lease for 50 acres of the 61 being held in reserve, allowing the Sout Corman Park Community Association (CPCA) to double their existing 5 acres for future expansion.

CURRENTLY HAYLAND In the discussion following the presentation, SCP resident John Hanbridge mentioned that he has been hay farming

the public reserve for the past decade. Some profits from this venture go toward assisting the SCPCA in its activities. DalenBrown said their plan will allow Hanbridge to continue haying his crop. It turns out, some residents were not aware the land had been set aside as municipal reserve, nor how it was being used. Tensions rose somewhat as comments from the Community Association and horse owners flew back and forth. Hanbridge said although the proposal looks very appealing, he is concerned that maintenance costs of the park and trails have not been sufficiently addressed. Another resident said there are as many dirt bikes as horses in the area and “what’s stopping them from using the trails?” Co-facilitator of the meeting, Max Putnam acknowledged that “unfortunately this has turned into a spitting contest between two groups.” Bill Delainey, outgoing Director of Planning with the RM of Corman Park, believes the SCPHOA is headed in the right direction. “What you’re proposing is fantastic, but it does come with some challenges that have to be addressed,” said Delainey. “The policing issue exists regardless of what you’re proposing.”

need trails to accommodate them. Dog agility groups need space, natural areas for their shows where they can set up their course. The only option for people going for a walk is dusty gravel roads. People want to see this happen.” Dalen-Brown stated that the Grassland Fillies constitute eighty women wanting to

Investigating officers, aided by descriptions and directions provided by concerned citizens in the area, located three males seen running from the stolen truck, within the surrounding area. Four firearms, also reported stolen from the Radisson area, were found in the vehicle along with a large quantity of other stolen property. One adult male and two young offender males are all facing charges of possession of stolen property over $5,000, possession of stolen property under $5,000, several breaches and numerous firearms related offenses. Further charges may be laid.

EDUCATION NEEDED Dalen-Brown stressed the fact that education is needed. “People don’t know how to react around horses.” One slide in the PowerPoint presentation showed a yield sign from Central Park in New York City. The sign indicated that all traffic, bikes and pedestrians, yields to the horses. At the sign-in table, area resident and Grasswood Fillies member, Lauretta Hannay commented: “People aren’t respectful of horse riders. We need a nice safe place for our kids to ride. We want to do shows and clinics. There is no place right now for the guys who have sleighs; they

One man was taken to hospital following a two-vehicle collision on Wednesday, June 27 just east of Sunset Estates on Highway 5. A Saskatoon RCMP spokesperson stated the incident happened just after 6:00 p.m. and involved a head-on collision between a car and a truck. The male driver and lone occupant of the car suffered undetermined injuries. The male driver and sole occupant of the truck was uninjured. Travel was restricted to a single lane for several hours due to the accident, which was investigated by a Collision Analyst. Alcohol was not believed to be a factor in the collision.

disagree at all. “I would hate to see things get dragged out in meetings for another year or two,” said Putnam. “We’ve got a golden opportunity here.” While the vision for an equine park and specifically designated ‘equine friendly’ community has been met with enthusiasm by many, others still have concerns.

CLARK’S CROSSING

Egg Money New book offers heartfelt tribute to a Warman-area pioneer woman By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

T

here’s not a day goes by that Sam Dyck doesn’t think about his mother. Mary Dyck passed away in 1980, but her memory is very much alive for Sam, his brother and two sisters. “She was my role model,” explains Dyck, a Warmanarea farmer and a long-time elected representive on the Prairie Spirit School Division. “A lot of who I am, I attribute to her and the positive influence she had on me in my formative years. She really moulded my character.” Sam’s sister, Alma Guenther, agrees. “She was the glue that held the family together through the hard times,” said Alma. “She had a very strong work ethic, a lot of love and patience with her family, and a very deep and abiding faith in God.” In many ways, Mary Dyck was not unlike others of her generation, who moved to Canada from other countries when they were very young, settled on the prairies and raised their families. As the years went by they overcame harsh weather, isolation, loneliness and poverty to build a future for their children. Like many women of her generation, Mary Dyck overcame adversity to raise her family and help build her community, province and country. While history readily acknowledges the contribution of men, the stories of these women’s lives is still largely hidden. In 2009, a statue honouring pioneer women was erected in Saskatoon. Commissioned by the Saskatoon German Days Committee to pay tribute to pioneer women, the statue was designed by Don and Shirley Begg and

was one of three bronze, lifesized statues to come from the Studio West foundry in Cochrane, Alberta. The statue was of a young woman feeding chickens. The inscription at the base of the statue reads: “Pioneer life on the prairies was not easy. Women, assisted by their children, raised chickens and sold eggs to buy essential items for their families. The resourcefulness of these women helped families and communities survive during the pioneer times from the late 1800s onward. The German community of Saskatoon, in a spirit of gratitude, honours Saskatchewan’s pioneer women from all ethnic backgrounds, for lives of courage, hardship and perseverance. This monument serves to commemorate them.” Sam Dyck vividly recalls those years. “Thursdays were egg days,” he recalls. “When I was in my teens, we used to drive in to Saskatoon’s north end trailer courts and sell eggs door to door.” “I particularly like the sculpture,” adds Alma Guenther. “I think it speaks volumes. It has the family context with the children and the chickens beside the young woman. I remember feeding the chickens and taking the eggs to sell. I could immediately identify with that experience, and with how important that egg money was to farm families. Even when family allowance came in, it was still a very small amount, so the egg money was always very important.” Mary Dyck’s name was one of 24 engraved on plaques near the statue, in acknowledgement for the families’ assistance in bringing the statue to Saskatoon. Shortly after the statue was

installed, the families were asked to contribute the life stories of the women who were being honoured. The Dyck family collaborated over several months to write their mother’s story – which appears in a book published by Driver Works. At the book’s official launch in early June at the Western Development Museum in Saskatoon, Sam

Dyck said meeting other people who contributed to the book was a great experience. While the 24 women all lived in different communities across Saskatchewan, there is a common thread that runs through all of them, he said. “They were a lot like my own mother” he said. “They were the glue that held their family together, they had a

tremendous work ethic, and a very strong faith. They had different religions, but they all believed in something bigger than themselves, and they were always working to make life better for the next generation.” In writing the tribute to their mother, both Sam Dyck and Alma Guenther said they felt they grew closer to her. “She had a very hard life when she was young,” said Sam. “She was an orphan when she was 7 years old, and her older brothers and sisters weren’t able to take care of her so she was put up for adoption. There is a very touching story how she was standing at the railway station, waiting for someone she’d never seen before to come and pick her up. She never had the opoprtunity

for a lot of formal education herself, but she had a love of learning, so she really encouraged us to go to school and get a good education.” Mary Dyck moved with her adoptive family to Saskatchewan in 1925 from Russia. She married Jacob Dyck in 1934 and the family settled on a farm near Warman. Six children were born but two died in infancy. The tribute in the book describes Mary Dyck: “While admired for her work, Mary will be remembered for her love. She was strong in character yet gentle in spirit.” Mary Dyck passed away in 1980 and is buried in the Osler cemetery. But her story provides an inspiration to future generations. The book is available at bookstores and from the publisher at www.driverworks.ca .

Bethany College stages The Hiding Place this fall Submitted by Bethany College Staff

Bethany College, Hepburn

Susan J Schmidt Goerz, Drama Director and Instructor at Bethany College, is already preparing for the annual Fall Dessert Theatre to be held in November. She has been an integral part of developing this tradition at Bethany College - one that is rooted in a desire for meaningful story-telling as well

as mentoring students in the arts. This year is no exception. The drama Susan has chosen to bring to life is The Hiding Place, which is a story filled with love, faith, history and God’s grace. When asked how she made her decision to choose this drama, she commented: “The Lord re-led me to the book The Hiding Place, the story of Corrie ten Boom, just a few

years ago,” she said. “As a child, I had seen the movie and the reality of the war situation, and the ten Booms’ powerful faith was poignantly etched into my brain. It was a turning point careerwise for me, to realize there was a way for Christians to professionally use the medium of theatre to serve God. Theatre and story-telling allow us to see the faith of others, encourage and lift us up

and broaden our understanding.” You will not want to miss seeing The Hiding Place, because it is a great story of faith and God’s victory in our lives. This year’s Fall Theatre performances will be Friday and Saturday with Saturday Matinee. Please visit www. bethany.sk.ca or call 1-866772-2175 for details and early bird ticket information.

Legends plays host to provincial junior golf championships By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

A

competitive field of 93 young men and 9 young women teed off at the Legends Golf Course on Monday, July 2 in a bid to capture the Saskatchewan Junior Men’s and Junior Women’s championships. And for once, the weather cooperated - more or less. Despite a few thundershowers across the region the night before, golfers didn’t have to contend with anything worse than a touch of sunburn the first day. At the end of Round 1, Justin Paradis and D.J. Sayese, both of Cooke Municipal Golf Club in Prince Albert, held the lead, tied at one under par. Leighton Bearchall of Hillcrest Golf Club in Moose Jaw and Tyler Puetz of Melfort were tied for third place at even par at 72 for the 18-hole course. Luc Pauli of Cooke Municipal Golf Club in Prince Albert, Anthony Neufeld of Riverside Estates Golf Club in Saskatoon, and Cory Sawchuk of Cooke Municipal Golf Club of Prince Albert were in a three-way tie for fifth place at one over par. Keenan Strelau of Mar-

tensville, a member of the Legends Golf Club, was 6 over at 78; while Cole Bergen of Warman was 12 over at 84 and Turner Hamm of Warman was 22 over at 94. On the women’s side, Lisa Reid and Brooke Hobson led after the first round, tied at 81, 9 over par. They were followed by Kayla Sawchuk in third spot at 11 over par and Brooke Hill in fourth place at 12 over. The second round went Tuesday, July 3, with the final round on Wednesday, July 4. Results from both rounds were unavailable at the Gazette press deadline.

LEGENDS A TOP COURSE The Junior Men’s and Junior Women’s tournaments, held simultaneously this year, marked the second time in as many years that the Legends Golf Club has hosted a prestigious provincial tournament. Last year, the club was the setting for a spectacular win by Troy Bulmer in the Saskatchewan Men’s Amateur championship competition. Dan Ukrainetz, Manager of Tournaments and Players Services at Golf Saskatchewan, said the provincial championship tournament

offers a great platform for athletes to advance. “It’s a great experience for these young golfers,” said Ukrainetz. “A lot of them only play in local events, so this goes a long way toward helping them develop and grow. As they get into national tournaments, they may be able to land college scholarships and hopefully advance to the pro level.” The provincial golf body introduced a team championship to this year’s event as a way of encouraging more clubs to send young golfers to the event. According to Ukrainetz, it was a positive move. “We have about 40 more golfers entered in this year’s tournament,” he said. He noted the course challenged the young golfers without overwhelming them. Urkainetz said the Legends is high on Golf Saskatcehwan’s list of host clubs for tournaments in future years. “We were very happy with the Saskatchewan Men’s Amateur tournament last year, and so far with the Juniors it’s been going very well,” he said. “The club does a tremendous job of setting up the course for us, and the volunteers and the facility are first rate. Defiinitely the Legends is a place we’ll be coming back to.”

Full 60 minutes and nothing less for Chamblin That was one nice birthday present for Carter Chamblin. While the infant son of Saskatchewan Roughriders head coach Corey Chamblin was celebrating his one year birthday back home in Regina, his father was getting splashed with a Gatorade shower in Hamilton after winning his CFL coaching debut against the Tiger-Cats. Actually it was just before he won his coaching debut, which is worth pointing out. Rider running back Brandon West and a few of his teammates doused Chamblin with the cooler while 54 seconds still remained in the Riders’ season-opening 43-16 blowout over the Ticats Friday night. Chamblin smiled, but was seen pointing at the scoreclock while swatting ice cubes off his shirt in the sweltering southern Ontario heat. “I told them ‘Let’s finish’!” Chamblin revealed after the

game which gives you some idea of his style. The game is to be played full-out for 60 minutes, no shortcuts. And let’s be honest. There isn’t a soul out there who believed the Roughriders would go into Ivor Wynne Stadium and thoroughly dominate the Ticats like they did last week. Not even Chamblin, who was confident in his troops going in, but admitted “I thought it would he close going into the fourth quarter.” It wasn’t. The Riders opened a 7-0 lead 10 minutes into the game on the first of three Weston Dressler touchdown passes from Darian

Durant and they never relinquished the lead the rest of the game. They led 7-3, 16-13 and 33-16 by quarter on the way to a nearly four touchdown blowout win. And here’s where you get some “Rider Insider” stuff. Perhaps the biggest turning point in the game came midway through the second quarter with the Riders leading by a point. Durant hooked up with a 52-yard pass to Dressler which replays clearly showed wasn’t a completion. But the Rider offense raced down the field with quarterbacks coach Khari Jones screaming in the headset “Get

on the ball! Get on the ball!”. They got the next play off before the Ticats could challenge even though Hamilton coach George Cortez had his hand on the yellow hanky. Then one play after that, Durant threw a 29-yard touchdown to Chris Getzlaf. What does this mean? It means this Chamblin coaching staff is ‘with it’, it’s sharp, and along with the players, they’re all singing from the same hymn book, to coin a phrase. We’ve discussed the many similarities between Chamblin and Rider legend Kent Austin but as each day goes by, it becomes spooky how their methods parallel each other. Each has taken criticism for their “my way or the highway approach” but their results speak for themselves. But as for last Friday evening in Hamilton, it was a pretty good night for the Chamblin boys.

Milan Jablan takes his first win of the year at California motorbike race track 12-year old motorcycle racer from Corman Park is tearing up the track across the western United States Submitted by GORAN JABLAN www.milanjablan.com

W

illow Springs International Raceway hosted the WERA circuit during the weekend of June 17 and 18. And 12-year old Milan Jablan, who lives in Hidden Ridge in the RM of Corman Park, was happy to get back on the track. After missing the Miller Sports Park race the previous weekend in Salt Lake City, Utah, Milan was ready to start Saturday practice on his B motorcycle with a freshly rebuilt engine. Willow Spring is a very fast track and Milan started to adapt very well. Initially the front end on his RS 125 was unstable over bumps and after preload adjustments were made the bike started to corner much better. Unfortunately Lenny Albin from Superbike Chassis LLC could not make it for this race so Milan had to ride with his Dad’s setup. He sure wished Lenny was there. Milan started to work on breaking points and corner speed in corner # 1 and increasing corner speed through corners 3, 4 and 5. He entered the 20 lap solo race and finished first in novice class and 3rd expert and novice combined. This is Milan’s first win with WERA West.

WERA Motorcycle Roadracing, Inc is one of the oldest and largest national sanctioning bodies conducting motorcycle races at road courses across the United States. 2004 marked the 30th Anniversary for WERA Motorcycle Roadracing. During the 20-lap solo race Milan managed to shave almost 10 seconds from his first practice run. Milan entered the Saturday mini race aboard his Honda RS 80 and finished 2nd. He is leading the Saturday mini championship by 5 points. During Sunday practice Milan was focusing on corner’s 8 and 9 the fastest corners on the track. All the hard work paid off during the Formula 3 race. Milan did not have the best start but managed to catch up with Shawn Heeny and Kenny Anderson on the second lap. While trying to pass Shawn between corners 3 and 4 Milan went wide and lost some time. He recovered from that mistake and managed to stay with Shawn and Kenny until the last lap. As the battle for second place was heating up the gap between Milan and his competitors got bigger and he finished in 4th place. After the race he realized that he could have gone faster through corners 8 and 9. During the Formula 2 race Milan was focusing on corner speed through corners 8 and 9 and he was happy with his progress. During the Sunday mini race the exhaust pipe broke right after the start resulting in significant loss of engine power. Milan had to settle for 3rd place. Overall it was a great weekend for Milan, he liked Willow Springs a lot. He

enjoyed playing with his competitors, Anthony, Shawn and Kenny after races. The truck transmission held up and we made it home, another 3800 miles trip.

A Saskatchewan classic takes the stage By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

A

Saskatchewan classic is set to hit the stage at the Station Arts Centre in Rosthern later this week. “Jake and the Kid” by W.O. Mitchell is an endearing coming-of-age story about a young boy who learns about life while growing up on a prairie farm in the 1950s. “Jake and the Kid” was a weekly radio drama that rural households across the country tuned into faithfully in the days before television was king. In the series, W.O. Mitchell’s characters included “the kid” – a boy of about 10 to 12 years old, his widowed mother, and their hired hand, “Jake” who dispensed pithy wisdom borne of a lifetime of experience. For the Station Arts Centre, the script is a perfect match, according to Diana Domm Smythe, manager of the facility. Since its first summer production of “Harvest Moon” in 1990, the restored and renovated 1901-vintage railway station in Rosthern has become one of the most respected live theatre venues in the prairie provinces. Specializing in works with a prairie theme, the Station Arts Centre combines a superb restaurant and art gallery with professional theatre performances. “We really wanted something that was family-oriented, and this script is perfect,” said Smythe in an interview last week. “We want children and young people to see live theatre and realize that it is accessible and it’s something that they can enjoy. Kids don’t have a chance to ex-

perience live theatre as much as they used to, and this is something that they can enjoy as much as the adults will.” Jake and the Kid runs from July 6-29, with performances on Tuesdays through Saturdays, beginning at 8:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. matinees on Wednesdays and Sundays. Pre-show dinners are available by reservation. Tickets are available by calling 306-232-5332. “We tend to sell out performances towards the end of the run because of the word-of-mouth advertising from people who have seen the show,” explained Smythe. “So we recommend buying your tickets early.” The script was based on the radio shows by W.O. Mitchell, one of Saskatchewan’s bestloved playwrights and novelists. It was adapted for the stage by Conni Massing. Alex Batycki, a 14-year old student from St. Denis who attends school in Aberdeen, makes his professional debut as “The Kid”, bringing a youthful energy to the role. While this is his first major acting gig, he’s no stranger to the stage, having been a part of the Saskatchewan Express musical troupe. The play is directed by Julia Jamison and also features in the sixmember cast: Andy Curtis of Calgary in the role of Jake, Joshua Beaudry, Deborah Buck, Angela Kemp and Jacob Yaworski. Smythe, who lives in Martensville, said the Station Arts Centre has built a loyal following over the past two decades. “Many people come for the whole experience,”

she said. “The drive out to Rosthern is beautiful in the summer, and they come for the pre-show supper and tour the art gallery before the performance. We also have a beautiful garden outside the building that people love to walk through and enjoy.” The 160-seat theatre has staged memorable performances over the years, as

actors and directors from across the country love the atmosphere and facilities. “Summer theatre tends to be a little more relaxed and informal,” said Smythe. “But it’s still very professional. For actors, it’s a great experience to immerse themselves in the production and soak in the rural culture.”

Hepburn Co-operative Playschool celebrates 25 years Submitted by LAURA REGEHR

Hepburn Co-operative Playschool

H

epburn Co-operative Playschool was established in 1986 by parents interested in providing a ‘learning through play’ program for chidren ages 3 and 4. Twenty-five years ago, in May 1987, the first 18 chil-

dren graduated. The founding Board of Directors were Bev Amendt, Sally Willms, Darlene Peters, Kelly Voth and Laura Regehr as chairperson. Our first facility was the Hepburn Golden Age Centre. This location was not ideal so we moved to the basement of the Koffee Korner. In 1989 we fixed up the empty room on the east

side of Hepburn Centennial Bowl and operated from there for many years. When a portable became available at the school, the program was moved to that location. Seniors, Peter Regehr and Anton Van Ness were very supportive of our venture, even building the twenty chairs needed. These were built very sturdy as they are still in use

today. Dwayne Regehr put in many hours creating the building blocks, tables and shelving. Parents over the years have been very supportive in fundraising, volunteering items, time and energy to continue the success of the playschool. The teachers who were instrumental in teaching the children over the years include Sandra Jack-

son, Joanne Janzen, Laura Regehr, Jen Willms, Mrs. Marten, Marge Hamm and currently Diane Boldt. Laura Regehr, who taught for 16 years, holds the record as teaching the most years. Her last class is now graduating from Grade 11. Hepburn Co-operative Playschool is the longest continuously-run program in the valley. A klndergar-

ten teacher once said that children coming through this program are ahead of the learning curve as they have learned to interact with other children, listen in a group, line up, take turns, and follow instructions. For me, it is very gratifying that this program is still serving the community.

Impaired driver with unlocked rifle in truck cab arrested by RCMP in Radisson Submitted by Sgt. Warren Gherasim Acting Commander Warman RCMP Detachment

SUSPENDED LICENSE On the 22nd of June at 11:50 p.m. RCMP were conducting a Checkstop on Highway 11 near Township Road 381, near Warman. Police observed a vehicle stop before entering the Checkstop and then turn around and attempt to avoid the Checkstop. The vehicle, a 2005 Dodge Dakota, was stopped by police a short distance away. The driver was questioned and it was determined that he was suspended and did not want to get stopped by police for that reason. A 46 year old man from the Beardys Okemasis First Nation was charged for driving while suspended. GUNS, BOOZE DON’T MIX On June 24 at 5:50 p.m. RCMP received a complaint of an erratic driver in Radisson. A short while later police located a Ford F150 truck matching the description being operated near the main entrance to Radisson from Highway 16. The vehicle was stopped and the driver displayed numerous signs of impairment by alcohol. Police arrested the driver for impaired driving. At the time of the arrest police observed an unlocked rifle in the front seat of the vehicle. The rifle was seized. Police took the driver to the police detachment where he provided samples of his breath that were triple the legal limit. A 63 year old Radisson man is charged with impaired driving and unsafe storage of a firearm. The man is scheduled to appear in Saskatoon Provincial Court on July 24. ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL On June 26, shortly after midnight, police received a call of a Ford Ranger truck parked on the side of the highway on Highway 12 south of Martensville, near the interchange with Highway 11. Police located the truck in the southbound lanes with a man seated behind the wheel sleeping. Investigation revealed that the man had been consuming alcohol and displayed signs of impairment. The man was arrested for having care and control of a motor vehicle while his ability to operate the vehicle was impaired. The man was taken to the police detachment where he provided breath samples that were almost double the legal limit. The man was later re-

leased on impaired driving charges and will attend court in Saskatoon on July 31. NO LICENSE SINCE 2007 On June 28 at 6:00 a.m. RCMP were patrolling on 6th Avenue in Martensville when a 1988 Chrysler LeBaron was observed idling on the side of the street with a man slumped in the front seat behind the wheel. Police investigated and discovered the man was displaying numerous signs of impairment by alcohol. The man was determined to be unlicenced since 2007. He was arrested by police for having care and control of a vehicle while impaired. The man was taken to the police detachment where he provided samples of his breath that were in excess of double the legal limit. The man, a 57 year old resident of Watson, Saskatchewan, was released on charges of care and control and excess blood alcohol. He is scheduled to appear in Saskatoon Provincial Court on July 25. The vehicle was also seized pursuant to provincial law. 5 DEER HIT ON HIGHWAY Police responded to 5 collisions that involved vehicles hitting deer on highways throughout the jurisdiction. Police remind motorists that deer activity is high right now and that driver’s should exercise caution on provincial highways, particularly at night. MARTENSVILLE BREAK-IN On June 23 at 11:55 a.m. police received a report of a break-in to a residence in the 800 block of 6th Street North in Martensville. Police attended and discovered that thieves had forced their way into the residence through the back door. There was also a shed in the yard which had been entered. Police brought in Forensic Identification officers to process the scene. Neighbours reported seeing activity in the area at 2:00 a.m. but no descriptions were available. Police continue to investigate. VANDALISM TO VEHICLES On June 24 at 1:20 a.m. RCMP received a complaint that people were putting flour and super glue on cars parked on Sandy Rise in Martensville. Police attended but the suspects were no longer in the area. It was determined that there was no permanent damage to any vehicles. THEFT FROM VEHICLE Sometime overnight or in the early morning hours of June 28 someone entered

a parked vehicle in the 300 block of 5th Street South in Martensville. The culprit stole a wallet which contained numerous items of identification and credit and debit cards. The owner of the vehicle believes that the vehicle was unlocked. The public are reminded not to leave valuables in their vehicle and to always lock their vehicles when left unattended. OSLER ERRATIC DRIVER On June 28 at midnight a white truck was observed driving erratically in Osler. Police were advised that the truck, while operating in the 200 block of 4th Avenue was observed to collide with a garbage bin, causing the roll-out bin some damage. Police continue to investigate. HIGHWAY ASSAULTS On June 24 at 4:00 a.m. RCMP received a call from a female who advised that she had been assaulted by her boyfriend on Highway 14 between Asquith and Saskatoon. Police located a vehicle and the complainant who advised police that she had been grabbed and assaulted. Police located the boyfriend a short distance away walking on the highway. The man was arrested for assault. Further investigation revealed information that led police to believe that the complainant had driven the car into the boyfriend while he was walking away on the highway. The man was not injured. The complainant was also arrested for assault. Both subjects were later released on charges of assault and will attend Provincial Court in Saskatoon in answer to the charges. Charged are a 21 year old man and a 17 year old woman, both from Saskatoon. Both subjects have attended for a first appearance and further appearances are scheduled in July. Alcohol was a factor in this incident. PASSED OUT AT PIKE LAKE On June 28 at 7:30 a.m. RCMP received a complaint of an unconscious male near the store inside the Pike Lake Provincial Park. Ambulance personnel attended with police and located a man at that location. It was determined that the man was intoxicated and had passed out at that location. After being checked by ambulance personnel the man, a 22 year old Buffalo Narrows resident, was arrested for being intoxicated in a public place and lodged in police holding cells for his safety. He was later released without charges.

Solar begins nine month jail sentence for theft James William Solar, an accountant from Warman, is now serving a 9-month sentence for stealing more than $48,000 from the estate of a deceased client. Solar, 66, was taken into custody following his appearance in Court of Queen’s Bench in Saskatoon on Wednesday, June 27. Solar failed to repay any of the funds he illegally obtained from the estate of Nick Regush. Justice Neil Gabrielson said the 9-month sentence was aimed at sending a warning to other financial professionals who are in a position of trust. Solar is the proprieter of Solar Consulting Service in Warman, which offers accounting services including wills and estate executions. He was named as an executor of the estate of Nick Regush, who passed away in 2002. Nick Regush’s brother Mi-

chael, who lives in BC, had also been appointed as an executor of the estate, but Michael Regush subsequently gave up that role, leaving Solar as the sole executor. However, before he relinquished his role as executor, Michael and two of Nick Regush’s grandsons opened a safety deposit box that had belonged to Nick Regush. Inside the box they found more than $32,000 in cash, mostly in $100 bills. They did not tell Solar they knew about this money. At Solar’s trial earlier this year, court heard how Solar had removed the cash from the safety deposit box in August, 2003. Solar then opened a new safety deposit box in his own name at a different bank. Three months later, he began making deposits of $100 bills into his firm’s account at that bank. He also deposited a Canada Pension Plan cheque meant for Regush into his own business account, along

with 15 other cheques. The RCMP began investigating the case in 2004 when Nick Regush’s daughter, Orlene Kozak, had herself appointed administrator of the estate and discovered the cash was missing. Charges were laid in 2008 after a lengthy investigation. Solar was convicted during a trial held in April, 2012. At that trial, Solar claimed he could repay the funds from a pending land sale. However, he failed to come up with any money at the most recent hearing, and was immediately placed in custody to begin serving his sentence. In addition to serving 9 months behind bars, Solar has also been ordered to repay Regush’s estate $48,303 in restitution. Solar has a prior criminal record from 2002, for uttering a forged bank draft. He received a conditional discharge with 6 months probation.

Provincial population grows by almost 20,000 Saskatchewan’s population grew by 19,642 people between April 1, 2011 and April 1, 2012 - the most growth in any oneyear period since 1930. New population estimates released June 21 by Statistics Canada show Saskatchewan grew by 4,470 people in the first quarter of 2012 (January 1 to April 1, 2012). Saskatchewan’s annual and quarterly growth rates of 1.87 per cent and 0.42 per cent respectively are both the second-highest among the provinces, behind only Alberta. There were 1,072,082 people living in Saskatchewan on April 1, 2012. Economy Minister Bill Boyd said Saskatchewan continues to benefit from a strong and growing economy. “Saskatchewan’s economy is firing on all cylinders and that means our province is growing at its fastest pace in more than 80 years,” Boyd said. “Our government is committed to ensuring that this growth continues and to meeting the challenges and opportunities of a growing province.” Saskatchewan’s strong growth in the first quarter of 2012 was driven by immigration, with net international in-migration (number of people moving in minus people moving out) of 3,436. Saskatchewan also saw a natural increase (birth minus deaths) of 1,043 and a very small net interprovincial out-migration of nine people. Saskatchewan has grown by more than 75,000 people in the past five years.

Great news on the economic front came from Statistics Canada last week: retail sales are up and the number of people collecting employment insurance is down. “There are connections to both of these economic indicators that make sense,” Economy Minister Bill Boyd said. “When you have more people in the workforce, there is more money out there to be spent. Both of these indicators are bolstering a Saskatchewan economy that is creating jobs, supporting new and expanding businesses and improving quality of life.” Retail sales were up 6.9 per cent in April 2012 over April last year, twice the national average of 3.4 per cent. On a monthly basis, retail sales increased by 0.7 per cent between March 2012 and April 2012, the third highest increase among the provinces and well ahead of the 0.5 decline on a national front. April retail sales totalled $1.4 billion, the highest ever on record for the month of April. The number of Employment Insurance (EI) recipients is down by 6.4 per cent between March 2012 and April 2012. Annually, the number of EI recipients dropped by 15 per cent. Only 9,220 people collected EI in Saskatchewan in the month of April.
