Members of the Martensville Fire Department raised the United States flag to half-staff on Tuesday morning in front of the fire hall to pay tribute to the men and women who gave their lives in the line of duty during the tragic events of September 11, 2001. After lowering the flags members of the department observed a moment of silence during the sunrise ceremony. TERRY JENSON CLARK’S CROSSING GAZETTE

Candidates step forward as elections draw near The list of candidates throwing their hats in the ring for the upcoming municipal and school board elections is growing. According to municipal electoral officers in a number of communities, nomination papers are starting to trickle in, although more are expected later this week. The elections are scheduled for Wednesday, October 24, and the deadline for nominations to be filed is Friday, October 19. As of the Gazette press deadline on Tuesday, September 11, the following candidates have publicly announced their intentions to run or have filed nomination papers.

MARTENSVILLE • Darnell Kuzek has announced he is running for Mayor of Martensville. • Robert (Bob) Blackwell is running for a councilor position in Martensville. • Jamie Martens is running for a councilor position in Martensville. • Incumbent councilor Tyson Chillog is seeking re-election to Martensville council. • Robert Fournier, an auto body tradesman, is running for a seat on Martensville City Council. • Charlene Herbers, a daycare provider, is running for Martensville City Council. OSLER • Jason Pauls, an incumbent councilor, is seeking reelection to the town council in Osler. • Incumbent Mayor Ben

Buhler is seeking re-election to the Mayor’s chair in Osler.

Corman Park OCP needs changes, say ratepayers

HAGUE • Daryl Fehr is seeking election to the Hague town council. Fehr is a dairy products technician. WARMAN • Incumbent Mayor Sheryl Spence has announced she is seeking re-election as Mayor in Warman. • Incumbent councilor Kendall Shram is seeking re-election to council in Warman. • Trevor Peterson is running for a councilor position in Warman. • Incumbent councilor Gary Philipchuk is running for re-election to council in Warman. • Incumbent councilor Richard Beck is seeking re-election to Warman council. CORMAN PARK • Judy Harwood is running for Reeve of the RM of Corman Park. PRAIRIE SPIRIT SCHOOL DIVISION • Incumbent PSSD School Board trustee Pam Wieler is seeking re-election in Sub-division 1. • Raymond Blanchard is seeking election in PSSD Subdivision 2. • Incumbent Keith Wagner is running for re-election in PSSD Subdivision 2. • Incumbent Cathy Taylor is seeking re-election in PSSD Subdivision 10.

The proposed Official Community Plan (OCP) for Corman Park ran into concerted opposition from ratepayers at the Corman Park Council meeting on Monday, September 10. The ratepayers, most of whom own land in the South Saskatchewan River valley south of Saskatoon, expressed concern that the new OCP and revamped zoning bylaws proposed by the municipality may be too restrictive. Their concerns stemmed from the OCP’s designation of much of the area as flood-sensitive. The designation of some land as being in the floodway or flood fringe of the river may pose problems for people who are seeking financing for development in those areas, according to Randy Rooke, a resident of the area and a lawyer who has a wealth of experience dealing with major chartered banks. In a presentation to the RM council, Rooke suggested the designation would raise unnecessary “red flags” with bankers. He suggested the OCP and zoning bylaws should be changed to ensure landowners are not disadvantaged. “The reality is that we don’t know what the full impact will be,” said Rooke. “This is prime agricultural land. It’s also prime development land. As soon as the South Bridge is finished, this area will be remarkably more accessible from the east side of the city. It will be busier than ever on Valley Road, and yet this area is designated as an environmental and natural resource area.” Rooke said council should press the provincial government to change the rules so the area is not subject

to restrictions based on the 500-year flood projections. Noting the South Saskatchewan River is regulated by the operators of the Gardiner Dam, he said the floods that occurred in 2005 and 2011 were the result of inappropriate release of water from the reservoir at the dam site. Rooke’s assertion was backed up by a presentation by Clifford Smith, a retired engineering professor at the University of Saskatchewan who helped design the floodway at the Gardiner Dam when it was being constructed in the 1960s. Smith said Saskatchewan is the only province that utilizes the 500-year flood level as the basis for regulations. Other provinces use 100-year or 200-year flood levels, he said. Rebecca Rowe of the RM of Corman Park planning department said the new OCP aims to clarify existing regulations and facilitate development. It is not intended to implement new restrictions, she said, adding provincial legislation requires the RM to use the 500-year flood level as a benchmark. The proposed Corman Park OCP and zoning bylaws have been in the works for several months, and have already passed First Reading at council. The proposed OCP would allow landowners to subdivide their land to permit additional properties per quarter section. The OCP and zoning bylaws will be the subject of a public meeting on Monday, September 24 at St. Anne’s Church on Lenore Avenue in Saskatoon, starting at 7:00 p.m. The RM Council will also be discussing the issue at a special evening council meeting on Tuesday, September 25 at the council chambers.

It was a great night for all involved as the Blades doubled up their northern rivals 6-3 and proceeds from the sold out game went to the Warman Minor Hockey Association.

Electoral boundary split unrealistic, mayor says By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

A proposal by the Saskatchewan Provincial Constituency Boundaries Commission to redraw the Martensville constituency should go back to the drawing board, according to Osler Mayor Ben Buhler. Under the proposed electoral boundary change, the revamped constituency would include the communities of Dalmeny, Martensville and Warman, as well as the hamlet of Cathedral Bluffs. But the Town of Osler would be excluded because the proposed northern boundary of the constituency would cut between Osler and Warman. Osler would become part of a new provincial riding known as Biggar-Sask. Valley and would be grouped in with Hague, Hepburn, Waldheim, Langham, Radisson, Borden and Biggar. “It really doesn’t make any sense,” said Buhler in an interview last week. “I understand that the boundaries need to be tweaked in order to accommodate the changes in population and I agree with that. But this particular proposal is not the right one. Osler needs to be part of

Buhler noted that Osler’s southern municipal boundary is separated from Warman’s northern municipal boundary by a mere two kilometers, and as both communities grow the need for cooperation will only increase. “We are part of the same trading area. We share many facilities in common, such as Warman’s rinks, and our students attend high school in Warman,” said Buhler. “Osler has always been in the same riding as Warman and Martensville, and it just makes a lot of sense to have one MLA.” Buhler said the commission is looking at finalizing the new electoral boundaries this fall. “It’s a tight timeline,” he noted. “But I certainly hope they will take our concerns into account and tweak the boundaries so Osler is retained in the Martensville riding.” Buhler said many people are unaware of the proposed provincial electoral boundary changes because the review is taking place at the same time as a federal electoral boundary review. “It wasn’t something that’s received much attention,” he noted.

the same riding as Warman and Martensville because we really are part of the same region and we have so many things in common.” Buhler outlined his concerns about the proposed boundary changes to the provincial electoral boundaries commission at a public hearing in Saskatoon last week and said the commission members were receptive to his suggestions. “I got some very good feedback from the Commission members,” he said. “I think they realize this particular proposal will create more problems and I believe they will tweak it to make sure Osler is part of the same riding as Warman and Martensville.” Buhler said his main concern is that it isn’t realistic to deal with two MLAs when it comes to regional planning issues. “There are so many areas where these communities are working together,” he said. “We are coming up with long-range plans for waste management, wastewater, flood mitigation and so on. Regional cooperation and partnership is part of the funding criteria for many of those projects.”

Buhler seeks third term as Osler Mayor We bring the world of window fashions By TERRY PUGH

B

en Buhler is seeking a third term as Mayor of Osler. “I am definitely running for one more term,” said Buhler, who was first elected to the post six years ago. “It’s been a good experience. It’s also been a very challenging experience, but I think we’ve made a lot of progress and we have a lot of projects that I’d like to see continue.” In an interview September 7, Buhler said he feels like there is a lot of “unfinished business” that still needs to get done. “I’d really like to see our ‘Project O’ housing development slated for the south part of Osler come to fruition,” he said. “That’s been something the Town and the developers have been working on for three years now, and it would be a big boost for the town to see it become a reality.” Project O is a residential and light commercial development that is proposed by a private company that owns 140 acres on the southern edge of Osler. The land was annexed by the town and is included in the municipal boundaries, but so far, the project is still in the early stages as discussions between the municipality and the developer continue. “It’s been a learning curve for everyone involved,” said Buhler, noting that the concept plan put forward by the developer would see about 200 new houses come on stream. “We have about 400 houses in town now, so that would increase the size of the community by half,” he continued. “It is a very major pro-

posal.” Buhler said the town recently made improvements to its water pipeline system, upgrading to a 6 inch line from the old 2 inch line. “That’s been upgraded to serve a capacity of 5,000 population, and our lagoon has also been expanded to the same standard, so there has been a lot of work done,” he said. “The next step is work on our streets and get the paving done.” Buhler said the town has spent $7 million over the last three years on infrastructure improvements. Some of that work was prompted by the chronic flooding problems due to heavy rains and high water table. The town and the fire department are also working toward a new fire hall for the town. The fire department has been doing considerable

fundraising, and the town has allocated $25,000 annually toward the building. At the present time, the fire hall and the town maintenance shop share a common building, and Buhler said it’s not adequate for either purpose. “They each need their own space,” he said. Buhler said one of his priorities is to build up municipal reserves. “We do have to spend money, obviously, on needed improvements,” he said. “But we also need to improve our reserves so we can have those funds in the future. The growth is going to continue, and we need to prepare for that. I am a firm believer that taxes have to be raised a little at a time because costs are always going up, and if you don’t reflect that in your taxes you’re going to be in trouble in the long run.”

Delisle Fire Department’s ATV helps battle area grassfires By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

T

he Delisle Fire Department has another potent weapon in its arsenal to battle grassfires. An all-terrain vehicle (ATV) equipped with a 100-gallon water tank, pump and hose, as well as a trailer for hauling the ATV, was officially unveiled at the Delisle Fire Hall last Thursday. It’s a much-needed addition to the department’s fleet, according to Delisle Fire Commission Chair Ron Stevens, a councilor with the RM of Vanscoy. “This is a tremendous vehicle that will allow us to get into places where we weren’t able to go before,” said Stevens. “If we can get on the small grassfires early by getting into those hard-to-reach places, we can stop them before they become big fires.” Stevens said the key to

fighting grassfires is having enough water pressure to douse the flames. “We’ve found that you don’t need a lot of water, provided you have the pressure coming out of the pump,” he said. “I’d like to thank the companies and the firefighters for their generous donations. It’s community support this that makes a difference for everyone. It makes the board and the firefighters proud to be able to serve a community like this.” Delisle Fire Chief Al Dreher said while the vehicle will be primarily used for fighting grassfires, it will also find other uses. “It can be used for search and rescue,” he noted. “It can go off-road and down lanes that you can’t get to in trucks. We can also use it in the wintertime. We have a sled we can tow behind it and we can bring people out of hardto-reach places. Once we get them to the road the ambu-

lance can get them to hospital in a hurry. There are lots of uses for this. We’re happy to have it.” Getting the ATV in the fleet took a coordinated effort. The ATV itself came from Moody’s Equipment, and was sold to the fire department at less than dealer cost. Agrium Potash made a cash donation to pay for the “side-by-side” ATV model. Orchard Transport Ag Division sold the water tank to the department at cost. Flaman Trailer Sales sold the trailer to the department at cost, while the Delisle Co-op made a cash donation for the trailer. The Delisle Volunteer Firefighters raised money to pay for the extra lights, water tank and pump.

increase in accident calls. “Three quarters of our calls this year have been car accidents,” said Dreher. “About half of the calls are on Highway 7 and the other half are on Highway 14.” Dreher said the department covers an area of roughly 1,000 square miles for fires, and a 2,000 square mile area for accident and medical emer-

gency response. “We cover right up to Perdue and almost to Biggar,” said Dreher. “It’s a very large area.” The department recently added another satellite fire station in Vanscoy, bringing the total number of fire halls to 4. The main hall is in Delisle, with satellite stations at Pike Lake, Donovan and Vanscoy.

“The building in Vanscoy is owned by the village, and it was originally a fire hall, so it’s back to its original use again,” said Dreher. “We just have one small truck there, which will be used mainly for town fires. We have two volunteer firefighters in Vanscoy, but I’m hoping to increase the number of firefighters. We certainly could use more people.”

RESCUE CALLS UP Dreher said the heavy rainfall this year has helped keep the number of fires down, but there has been a marked

Saskatchewan leads in job growth Employment in Saskatchewan rose by 20,100 between August 2011 and August 2012 according to new figures released today by Statistics Canada. That’s an increase of 3.8 per cent - the highest percentage increase in employment among the provinces and almost four times the national rate of 1.0 per cent. In August 2012, there were 549,100 people employed in the province - an all-time high for employment in Saskatchewan, beating the previous record set this past June. “Strong job numbers show the solid performance of our economy and reflect the job opportunities available in Saskatchewan today,” Economy Minister Bill Boyd said. “Today’s record numbers are exceptional and reinforce the confidence that investors, businesses and working people have in our economy. “Most importantly, this means there are plenty of career opportunities for Saskatchewan people and those who want to move to Saskatchewan.” Saskatchewan’s unemployment rate fell by 0.6 per cent in August to 4.4 per cent - tied with Alberta for the lowest unemployment rate in the nation and well below the national average of 7.3 per cent. Other highlights include: Full-time employment increased by 14,100 (3.1 per cent) and part-time increased by 6,100 (8.2 per cent). Regina’s employment was up by 1,300 (1.0 per cent) for 28 months of year-over-year increases, and Saskatoon’s em-

ployment was up by 9,000 (6.1 per cent) for 10 months of yearover-year increases. In August, Regina’s unemployment rate was 4.2 per cent, and Saskatoon’s unemployment rate was 5.3 per cent. Saskatoon’s unemployment

rate was the seventh lowest and Regina’s unemployment rate was the second lowest among all cities. The sector with the largest employment growth was construction, up 7,100 in the past year.

SK Paralympics athletes lauded Six Saskatchewan athletes displayed perseverance and determination when competing at the 2012 Summer Paralympic Games in London from August 29 until September 9. “Athletes, coaches and officials, thank you for being terrific role models,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Kevin Doherty said. “Your commitment to sport inspires the people of our province to stay healthy and active. You are great ambassadors for our province and our country. You help show the rest of the world that there are advantages to growing up in Saskatchewan.” The six athletes who competed are Arnold Boldt (cycling, Saskatoon), Logan Campbell (sailing, Saskatoon), Earle Connor (athletics, Rosthern), Alexandre Dupont (athletics, Bradwell), Keira Frie (athletics, Saskatoon) and Robert Hudson (archery, Leoville). Frie and Connor narrowly missed the podium. Frie placed 4th in the Women’s 5000 M (T54) and Connor placed 4th in the Men’s 100 M (T42).

Schroeder win caps off A&W Martensville 100 weekend By HILARY KLASSEN

hilaryklassen@gmail.com

Outlook’s Mike Schroeder lit up the field Saturday night to claim the checkered flag and the title of champion at the 2012 A&W Martensville 100 Invitational Race at Auto Clearing Motor Speedway. Starting in seventh spot in a cramped 33-car street stock field, Schroeder and his #34 Camaro climbed into the lead early on in the 100-lap feature race and never looked back. Dale Osbourne in the #43 and Kenny Heintz in the #62 finished second and third respectively. After a quick lap around the track with the checkered flag in hand as well as a few photos and sponsor presentations, Schroeder indulged the appreciative crowd by burning off some rubber with a celebratory series of spins in front of victory lane. Schroeder’s victory earns the longtime driver a paid trip to Martinsville, Virginia to take in a NASCAR race at Martinsville Speedway. While Schroeder seemed to easily navigate his way through the field with every passing lap, others didn’t fare as well. Five cautions were issued throughout the race but there were no serious wrecks despite plenty of paint being traded. Nineteen cars finished the race including Aaron Anderson of Martensville in his 1981 Camaro who is still “chasing the dream.” A competition caution was issued after 50 laps. Drivers can hit the pits to grab a quick drink, clean up the windshield and get fuel, but crews cannot touch the tires. While competitors darted in and out of pit row, the A&W Root Bear took the opportunity to visit the lower rows and passed out balloons and have pictures taken with children. The feature race was the culmination of a weekend of activities offered by title sponsors Brian and Bernice Buffin of the Martensville A&W. The weekend included a Tailgate BBQ on Friday at Smokehaus Meats, a Drivers’ Breakfast and Autograph session Saturday morning, a Show & Shine in the afternoon, a sponsors’ BBQ at the track in the Saskatoon Custom Garage and, of course, the race itself. Sponsors for the Martensville 100 were invited onto the track in their corporate vehicles for a few laps as well as impromptu “interviews” with trackside announcer Don Pogoda. Following the race a “Victory Lane Social” took place at the Adobe Inn in Martensville. The Saskatoon Stock Car Racing Association (SSCRA) is celebrating 50 years of racing this year. President Stan Reddekopp said this event is especially important to the association and they appreciate the incredible support of sponsors and fans as well as track volunteers, drivers and crew members.

Next NDP leader will face rural struggles

C O M M E N T A R Y

If it were simply a matter of where a political party leader was from, election results would be a lot different, wouldn’t they? Take the 2011 Saskatchewan provincial election in which the NDP were wiped off the map in rural Saskatchewan. Then NDP leader Dwain Lingenfelter (a Shaunavon area farm boy who worked extensively in the oil sector after his first 20-year stint in politics) should have been able to relate to rural Saskatchewan as well or better than Saskatchewan Party leader Brad Wall. Having grown up in Swift Current and as the son of a small businessman, Wall certainly had his own rural pedigree. But shouldn’t Dwain Lingenfelter have been able to relate to rural Saskatchewan at least as well as Brad Wall? Of course, it doesn’t work that way and anyone with even the most rudimentary understanding of Saskatchewan politics knows why. It has to do with the 30plus year history of why NDP government policies are unpopular in rural Saskatchewan. In fact, not since the late the 1970s under Allan Blakeney have the NDP consistently won rural seats. Yes, there was that brief period in the early the 1990s when rural voters – frustrated with the incompetence and later-discovered corruption of the Grant Devine Progressive Conservatives – turned to Roy Romanow’s NDP like everyone else in the province. But the success of Romanow (as urban in nature as any political leaders Saskatchewan ever had) was fleeting at best. In fact, it was the policies and choices of both the Blakeney and Romanow governments (Crown-owned resource companies; rural hospital closures, etc.) that drove rural voters away from the NDP. More free market oriented by nature, the rural Saskatchewan’s philosophical departure with the NDP has been decades in making. And while Lorne Calvert (a Moose Jaw boy only slightly more rooted to the rural mindset than Blakeney and Romanow) did somehow manage to win an election relying only on the city vote, Lingenfelter had no such chance. Even if Lingenfelter hadn’t abandoned his rural seat for the safety of inner city Regina two decades earlier, it would still have been impossible for him to make in-roads back into rural Saskatchewan. (And talking about hammering potash and oil companies with higher royalties was not helpful.) Yet here we are in another

Out of Town Shouldn’t Mean Out of Luck for Rural Mail Carriers By Denis Lemelin

National President, Canadian Union of Postal Workers

Many might believe that Canada is an essentially urban country, with its population concentrated in the big cities. But at least one-fifth of Canadians live and work in rural and small town communities, and many more of us reside in suburbs and satellite towns. Where we live is part of who we are, but it also affects how we are treated and the services we can access. Those of us who live and work in rural areas do not always get the same respect as urban residents or workers, especially from Canada Post. On an average day everywhere in this country, more than 7000 rural and suburban mail carriers (RSMCs) are driving the equivalent of ten trips around the globe. 68% of them are women. They’re delivering mail to more than 4 million addresses across Canada, including 750,000 rural mailboxes. And they’re maintaining and fuelling their own vehicles to do it. They’re part of a vast network bringing goods and services to rural and suburban areas. And they’re doing it all for less than their urban counterparts. For many years, rural mail carriers were classified as independent contractors. In the past, people had to bid against their neighbors for rural routes — ending up with often less than minimum wage and no benefits. In 2003, following decades of organizing by the rural mail carriers, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) made an agreement with Canada Post to contract them in. The RSMCs became employees with rights and benefits and protections. Getting unionized has helped rural mail carriers, which, in turn, has contributed to the prosperity of their local communities. They have seen some decent wage increases and better job security as well as getting vehicle compensation and holidays. But in many ways, rural mail carriers still find themselves on the wrong side of the rural-urban divide. Their work is not recognized equally at Canada Post and they have a long way to go to achieve parity with urban mail carriers, even though they do the same work. That is why the CUPW is currently negotiating a new contract for rural mail carriers on the principles of equality, respect and progress. Rural mail carriers shouldn’t have to settle for less just because of where they live and work. Basic issues such as a fair hourly wage, company uniforms, an adequate route measurement system, and health and safety protections, among others, are on the negotiations table now. All workers should be able to expect fair and equal treatment. All workers deserve safe and healthy workplaces. Rural residents and businesses also deserve more from their public postal service. So, the next time you meet or speak with your rural mail carrier, let them know you support them. They are the heart of your community – take their issues to heart.

Provincial Politics

NDP leadership race and here we again see the NDP desperately trying to revive its rural roots that have long ago died. Upon unveiling the 14 regional forum debates between next month and the March 9 NDP leadership vote, party organizers proudly announced nine of those forums would be outside Regina, Saskatoon, Moose Jaw and Prince Albert. (Those NDP forums include:

Humboldt, Nov. 22; Swift Current, Nov. 29; Melfort, Dec. 1; Rosetown, Jan. 12; Weyburn, Jan. 19; North Battleford, Jan. 24,and; Yorkton, Jan. 31.) It is a nice gesture, but it will surely take more than a few lip-service leadership debates in rural Saskatchewan – debates, aimed at the dwindling numbers of already committed NDP members, anyway – to win back the hearts and votes of rural voters. For starters, the rumoured candidates in the NDP leadership race like Cam Broten and Ryan Meili (Saskatoon) and Erin Weir and Trent Wotherspoon (Regina) all are based in the larger urban centres.

(Although some of these candidates – like most everyone else from this province – do have some rural roots.) Again, where you are from isn’t always the most critical issue in relating to rural voters. But not much of what we are hearing from today’s NDP is piquing the interests of rural voters. And the cold, hard reality of this is whoever assumes the NDP mantle will inherit this 30-plus-year NDP legacy of Saskatchewan New Democrats not being in tune with the rural vote. Little so far indicates that this will change any time soon.

Reader Opinions

Financial literacy important for students and parents As a former high school teacher, the beginning of September always meant back-toschool. For students, it’s a time for many new things at school. It can also be a time for new experiences: becoming more independent, going to a different school or moving out on their own. Now, as a parent of twogrown children, I am looking at the back-to-school season differently, reflecting on what I might have done to help them better prepare for school. I realize now that back-toschool is the perfect time to have a frank conversation with children about the importance

Martensville keeping tabs on what happens with new Corman Park OCP, zoning bylaws By TERRY PUGH

T

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

he City of Martensville wants to keep the lines of communication open with the RM of Corman Park when it comes to country residential development east of its boundaries. Martensville has a concept plan that takes into account possible future uses for land adjacent to the city’s current boundaries, but which is currently in the RM of Corman Park. The RM of Corman Park, meanwhile, is currently in the midst of revamping its zoning bylaws and rewriting its own official Community Plan (OCP). A copy of the proposed Corman Park OCP was received as correspondence at the Martensville City Council meeting on Tuesday, September 4. Martensville council directed that a letter be sent to the RM of Corman Park planning department outlining the existing Concept Plan for Martensville. The objective, according to several Martensville councilors, is to work with the RM on a regional basis. The RM of Corman Park has scheduled an open house for Monday, September 24 to gain feedback on its proposed OCP. The open house is scheduled to take place at St. Anne’s Church on Lenore Drive in Saskatoon, beginning at 7:00 p.m. The RM of Corman Park council is slated to hold a special meeting during the evening of Tuesday, September 25 to deal with second reading of the proposed OCP and zoning bylaws.

Langham gears up for annual Terry Fox Run on Sunday, September 16 Dust off those running shoes and get set to raise money for a good cause. The community of Langham is preparing to host its annual Terry Fox Run on Sunday, September 16. The run, named in honour of a young Canadian who lost his leg, and later his life, to cancer, has raised millions of dollars for cancer research since it began over thirty years ago. The Langham Terry Fox Run is scheduled to begin with a lunch at the Affinity Commu-

nity Hall in Langham at 12:00 noon. The run is slated to get underway at 1:30 p.m. A number of schools in the area will also be participating in the Terry Fox National School Run Day, scheduled to take place on Thursday, September 27. Terry Fox was diagnosed with osteogenic sarcoma (bone cancer) in his right leg in 1977 and had his leg amputated 15 cm (six inches) above the knee. While in hospital, Terry was so overcome by the suffering of other cancer patients that

12093MC02

he decided to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research. He called his journey the Marathon of Hope. Terry’s Marathon of Hope took place in 1980 with the simple objective of informing Canadians of the importance of finding a cure for cancer. With fierce determination, he ran an average of 42 kilometres (26 miles) every day for 143 days. Terry was forced to end his run on September 1, 1980 when the cancer spread to his lungs. By February 1, 1981, Terry’s dream of raising $1 for ev-

ery Canadian was realized - the Terry Fox Marathon of Hope fund totaled $24.17 million. Terry died in June 1981. On May 26, 1988, The Terry Fox Run became a Trust, independent from the Canadian Cancer Society, and received tax-exempt charitable registration as a public foundation. In addition to our signature and long-standing National Terry Fox Run Day in September of each year, The Terry Fox Foundation is proud to include in its events portfolio The National School Run Day.

The Terry Fox Foundation is responsible for supporting close to $20 million in discovery based research each year in Canada - all monies raised outside Canada must be distributed to (a) an institute approved by the Foundation and its advisors or (b) remitted to Canada. The Terry Fox Research Institute (TFRI) is a recipient of TFF funding for translational research. TFRI is an exciting new initiative whose goal is to translate rapidly today’s best science into better cancer treatment and

diagnosis for all Canadians. The Institute will bring scientists and clinicians together across the country into a functionally integrated, geographically dispersed Institute with nodes in several provinces. The Terry Fox Foundation is a grassroots organization that does not allow the Terry Fox name or likeness to be commercialized or conjoined with other worthy causes. To date, over $600 million has been raised worldwide for cancer research in Terry’s name.

Great Plains College welcomes students to Warman campus By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

T

he start of the academic year is always an exciting time at Great Plains College campus in Warman. “It’s a very busy time,” confirmed Susan Huntley, Program Coordinator for the regional college’s Warman campus. “Some of the classes have started, and the rest are scheduled to get underway very shortly.” Huntley said enrolment numbers this fall at the college are “pretty stable”, with most programs at capacity. “The Youth Care Worker program is always full,” she noted. “In fact, there is usually a waiting list. Another popular program is Educational Assistant certification, which

is also full. Both those programs have started already.” Huntley said the Early Childhood Education program is not full, but the enrolment is “healthy.” Other programs, including Office Administration, English as an Additional Language (EAL) program and the Grade 10 and Grade 12 Adult Basic Education (ABE) programs are also popular. The ABE program begins September 17. The Heavy Equipment Operator course begins in October. The college brokers academic and vocational programs from a number of post-secondary institutions, including the University of Saskatchewan, SIAST, Lakeland College and others. “We’re a regional college,” explained Huntley. “We don’t

write our own courses. We use courses from established postsecondary institutions, such as SIAST, that are recognized Canada-wide. That is good for students because they can take the courses here and then be able to have their credits recognized across the country. They can get transfer credits at other post-secondary institutions.” She said many students prefer to take courses at a small campus like Warman because they value the smaller class size and the one-on-one learning environment, as well as the community itself. “We attract students locally, but they also come from all across Saskatchewan and other provinces,” she said. “The biggest thing that works for us is the lower student-to-in-

structor ratio. Students get to know their classmates, their instructors and the staff at the college, and they know the college is there to assist them and encourage them on their journey.” Huntley said the college is planning a “service day” for the community of Warman. In past years college students have planted trees and done other volunteer work to beautify the town. The college is also planning its annual “Ladies Night Out” on November 1, and its Business Networking Breakfast on September 27 at the Legends Restaurant. Huntley said the college offers a mix of programs, but all of them are geared to the needs of the students, the community and the province.

Police investigate bear-spray incident at teens’ bush party east of Martensville Submitted by Sgt. Warren Gherasim Warman RCMP Detachment

ROLLOVER AT LANGHAM On September 5, shortly after 3:00 p.m., police received a complaint of a white SUV being operated erratically on Highway 16 west of Saskatoon. Patrols were made but the vehicle was not located. A short while later police were contacted about a white Chevrolet Equinox being involved in a roll-over collision on Highway 16 near Langham. Police attended and observed the white SUV in the ditch with substantial damage. Witnesses at the scene reported that the vehicle had been observed before the crash swerving and operating slower than highway speeds. The lone occupant of the vehicle, an adult female, was identified as the driver and was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. It is believed that alcohol was a factor and the police investigation is continuing. No charges have yet been laid. ROLLVER ON HIGHWAY 7 On September 7 at 10:24 p.m. police responded to a single vehicle rollover collision on highway 60, south of Highway 7. A 2004 Chevrolet Blazer was located on its side and the female driver was trapped inside. A man, who was a passenger in the vehicle, advised that he was being driven home from a party by the female driver when the vehicle flipped. The driver was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The woman displayed signs of impairment from al-

cohol consumption and as a result, police obtained samples of her blood for analysis. The matter is still under investigation. Police will await lab results to determine if the alcohol content in the blood samples exceeded the legal limit. No charges have been laid.

NSK” It is believed that the culprits sprayed this on the fence between the 4th and 6th of September. Anyone who knows the significance of these words or knows who may have done this is asked to contact the police. The matter is till under investigation.

ATTEMPTED BREAK-IN On September 3, at 10:00 p.m., a resident of a house on the 400 block of 2nd Ave. S. in Martensville advised police the she observed two females run from her residence when she returned home. It is believed that the two females may have been attempting to break into the residence when the owner returned home. There was no damage and nothing appears to have been stolen. Police patrolled the area but were unable to locate the two suspects. RADISSON THEFT On September 4, at 8:45 a.m., police received a report of a theft from a rural area near Radisson. The complainant reported that he had parked his truck adjacent to a field near Radisson while he was working in the field on September 3rd between 12:30 and 3:00 p.m. When he returned to the truck he discovered that a portable generator had been stolen out of the box of the truck. The generator is a Champion generator and is valued at $700.

MISCHIEF COMPLAINT On September 6 at 6:47 p.m. police attended to Asquith in response to a complaint of mischief. Witnesses had observed a child smashing the window of a pick-up truck. Police attended and located an 8 year old male who had committed the vandalism. The youth, because he is under the age of 12, cannot be charged. The matter was left to the parents to deal with. MARTENSVILLE MISCHIEF On September 8, at 6:47 p.m., police received a call of mischief occurring at the Venture Heights Elementary School in Martensville. Witnesses observed a maroon coloured car pull up behind the school where some construction equipment was located. A female got out of the car and picked up an orange shovel near a portable toilet and used the shovel to strike the wall of the school repeatedly. The female then put the shovel in the car and got into the passenger side, the vehicle then left the area. The female is believed to be in her late teens. Anyone who can identify the female or the vehicle is asked to contact the Warman RCMP.

A woman complained that she and her former common-law spouse had become involved in an argument and as a result she was assaulted outside of the residence. The woman advised that the man then coerced her back inside the residence where she became the victim of a sexual assault. Police attended in the area and located the suspect operating a vehicle while displaying signs of impairment. The man was arrested and taken to the police detachment where he provided breath samples in excess of the legal limit. A 46 year old man from the Warman area was charged with sexual assault, assault, uttering death threats, impaired driving and three counts of breaching a probation order. The man was held in custody for a bail hearing. The matter is still before the courts.

PARTY TIME! Warman’s City Celebration set for Saturday, October 27

E

xcitement is building for Saturday, October 27, when the Town of Warman officially becomes the City of Warman. “It’s going to be a very memorable event,” says Sharon Martens, a member of the Warman Town Council and cochair of the Warman City Celebration Committee. “There will be something for everyone.” The event is scheduled to take place at the Legends Centre in Warman, and is timed to coincide with the official opening of that facility. “The Town of Warman is officially becoming the City of Warman after the civic election on October 24,” said Martens. “We’ll be unveiling the brand new City of Warman logo, as well as the official colours of the new city. It’s an historic event, and we’re inviting everyone to come and join in the party.” The festivities begin at 12:30 p.m. with an official ribbon cutting to mark the grand opening of the Legends Centre. Even though the hockey rink portion of the facility has been open since last winter, this fall will see the completion of a portion of the indoor soccer field auditorium in the south half of the building. The celebration ceremony will be the first event in the new auditorium area. The official declaration of the City of Warman will be signed by the provincial Minister of Municipal Affairs, Jim Reiter, and the Mayor of Warman. Sharon Martens and Leonard Doell will present a pictorial history of Warman from its founding in 1906 to the present day. “We will be giving a snapshot of the community through the years,” said Martens. “We like to say that Warman is a town with a past, and a city with a future.”

RIDERS ON BIG SCREEN The event will also feature a big screen showing the live Continued on Page 15 Please see CELEBRATION

Cy Warman’s grandson to speak at City Celebration

A

very special guest will be among the featured speakers at the City of Warman celebration on Saturday, October 27. Bryan Warman Jr. is the grandson of Cyrus Warman, after whom the Town of Warman was named. Bryan and his wife Linda live in South Carolina, USA. Organizers of the Warman city celebration contacted them and extended an invitation. They recently confirmed they will be coming. “It’s a tremendous honour for our family,” said Bryan Warman Jr. “We wouldn’t miss it for the world. My grandfather was a very interesting guy who led a fascinating life, and I look forward to sharing some of those stories with the people of Warman.” Bryan Warman noted that his grandfather witnessed, and wrote about, an exciting time in the American Wild West. Cy Warman ran a daily newspaper in the silver-mining boomtown of Creede, Colorado in the early 1890s. Known as the “Poet of the Rockies,” Cy Warman was one of the most widely-read writers of his era. His articles, poems and stories appeared regularly in the New York Sun and other influential newspapers and magazines. He later moved to London, Ontario where he married and raised a family. He documented the construction of the Canadian Northern Railway line through western Canada. Cy Warman was born in 1855 and passed away in 1914.

Martensville Community Access Centre rolls out fall programs and services

By TERRY PUGH tpugh@ccgazette.ca

t’s been a busy summer for the Martensville Community Access Centre (MCAC), and it’s just going to get busier this fall. “With so many people moving to the community, there’s a real need for the kind of services that we provide,” said Kristee Lynn Adrian, MCAC Director. “It’s one of the first places they drop by and it’s a great place to discover what’s going on in town and to get to know people.” But the programs offered at the centre aren’t all geared for newcomers. From newborns to toddlers, schoolchildren, older youth, new parents and seniors, the MCAC aims to have something for everyone. “The MCAC was set up to provide people with a connection to their community,” said Adrian. “We offer a hub of resources, programs and services, including all kinds

of community information, resources for families, a local job bank, public computer and internet access and a local business display.” Adrian said there are several regularly scheduled programs that start up in the fall, including the “Ah-Ha! Homework Club” which provides tutoring help for students; and two programs geared toward young families: “Baby Babble” and “Toddler Talk”. “The Ah-Ha Homework club starts this month,” said Adrian. “We have a new coordinator this year, because our former coordinator is moving on to take her teaching degree. I know the experience of helping students one-on-one was beneficial both for the students and for her. Our Baby Babble and Toddler Talk programs start in October and go through to December.” Adrian said the Baby Babble and Toddler Talk sessions provide both a learning and social experience for parents. “A lot of the families enjoy

the centre is gearing up for its annual “Are you smarter than a Martensville Fifth Grader?” event on Saturday, November 17. Modeled on the popular television show, the event will feature local Grade 5 students from Martensville’s two elementary schools, as well as a celebrity host. In addition to the quiz show, there will also be performances by local artists. “We had the rhythmic gymnasts out last year, and we’re hoping they will come back this year,” said Adrian. “We also will have children’s activities in a separate room so parents can watch the show.” The MCAC is also planning a Family Literacy Day celebration on January 27, and is already drafting plans for next year’s Canada Day celebrations on July 1. Anyone interested in volunteering with the MCAC, or in finding out more information about the MCAC’s programs, can contact Kristee Lynn Adrian at 242-0362.

spending time together and they look for reasons to get out of the house. This provides a great avenue for that, and it’s very well-attended,” she said. “Lots of new parents come to these information sessions and they get to know each other while learning valuable tips on parenting from knowledgeable resource people.” The MCAC has a supply of custom-made “storybags” that are a great way to encourage math and reading literacy in a family setting, said Adrian. “We have 55 story bags right now, and our goal is to get that up to a hundred this fall,” she said. “We are continually adding things to them. It’s all based on having the children learn through play, and so it focuses on interaction and fun activities. The story bags help reinforce the skills the students learn in school.” The MCAC is always looking for volunteers to help out with the wide range of programs, said Adrian. She noted

Approximately 190 people were in attendance at the 3rd Bi-annual Warman Trunk Quilt Show on August 28 at the Brian King Centre. The evening started out with an informative session by Linda Wright, highlighting the importance of labelling quilts and some unique ways to label. Prairie Quilt Mercantile from Airdrie, Alberta presented some of the quilt patterns they have been working on the past few years and following their presentation had fabrics and patterns for sale to those in attendance. Proceeds of the evening support The Gedebo Project.

CELEBRATION Continued from Page 13 broadcast of the Saskatchewan Roughriders game that day. While watching the game, people can partake in some of the finest food Warman has to offer. “A Taste of Warman” will feature food prepared onsite by restaurants in the community. There will also be horsedrawn wagon rides outside, free public skating at the Legends Arena, children’s activities throughout the day, and plenty of time for socializing. Martens said she’s looking forward to meeting one of the featured speakers at the event: the grandson of the man for whom the town was named. “Bryan Warman Jr. and his wife Linda will be coming to the celebration,” she confirmed. “It will be a real honour to have them be part of this occasion.” The day wraps up with a massive fireworks display outside the Legends Centre at about 6:30 p.m. “It’s going to be the biggest party of the year,” said Martens. “You’re all invited. Watch for more details on the Warman civic website, in the Clark’s Crossing Gazette, and in your mailbox.”

Martensville Royals off to perfect start with home-opener By TERRY PUGH

T

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

he Martensville Royals kicked off the 2012 high school football season on a winning note last Friday, defeating the visiting Meadow Lake Spartans 20-14. But it wasn’t easy. The Royals held a 14-0 lead at the half, thanks to a first quarter touchdown by quarterback Shayne Hayward and a second quarter major by wide receiver Jacoby Hatch. The second half was a little more even as the Spartans found their footing, and the teams traded touchdowns. But as the final minutes ticked down, things suddenly got a lot more exciting. Leading 20-7 with a little over two minutes left in the game, the Royals gave up a touchdown. Just like that, their comfortable 14-point cushion was gone. But the Martensville defense dug in and stopped a determined Spartans’ comeback, forcing the visitors to turn the ball over on downs as the clock ran out. “That was a little too exciting for our first game,” confirmed Lyle Evanisky, head coach of the Royals after the final gun sounded. “It was pretty close there at the end.” Evanisky was glad the ending turned out differently than the Royals’ pre-season game against Foam Lake a week earlier. In that contest, the Royals were also leading until Foam Lake manufactured a lastminute touchdown drive to steal the victory. “It was a pretty similar situation,” said Evanisky. “Especially when Meadow Lake started marching the ball downfield. We took a bad penalty that kept their drive going, but in the end our defense stepped up and got the stop when we needed them to.” It wasn’t just the defense that shone in the game, though. Royals’ quarterback Shayne Hayward seemed to find ways to connect with his receivers for long gains, but he also wasn’t shy about running the ball himself for key first down yardage. Getting the offense going early was a priority for the team. “Last season we didn’t score a lot of points, so we wanted to make sure we started putting some on the board early, and kept the pressure up,” said Evanisky. “It makes a big difference if you can keep the offense on the field and give the guys on defense a chance to rest.” At least, a break for those players who aren’t playing both defense and offense,. Some, like Griffyn Dutka, Spencer Fitch, Shayne Hayward, Morgan Upton and Boden Young, are twoway players who spend most of the game on the field. Some of the pressure may be relieved when Devin Merriam returns in a few weeks from an ankle injury to take his spot in the lineup as a wide receiver and running back.

Bicycle safety award winners As part of its ongoing summer program promoting bicycle safety, the Warman Fire Department awarded six helmets and two brand new bicycles to eight lucky winners on Monday, September 10. Firefighter Kelvin Ooms and Lieutenant Marlin Wall presented (left to right) MacKenzie Parker, Brenna Paquin, Seth Roberts, Mads Jorgenson, Samantha Wollf, Ethan Way, Caden Atkings and Lizzy Seto with their prizes at the Warman Fire Hall. The program, which runs during the month of August, encourages kids to wear helmets while riding bikes, scooters and skateboards. Firefighters handed out coupons for free Slushies (cour-

tesy of the Warman Corner Service and Warman Co-op) to kids if they were spotted wearing a bicycle helmet. After redeeming their coupons for their Slushies, their names were entered in a draw for their chance to win one of two bikes and one of 6 helmets. The bikes and helmets were donated by the Warman Fire Department. Warman Fire Chief Gord Thompson said the program was a success, noting it has received widespread support throughout the community. Of the 300 coupons distributed this summer, 145 kids redeemed their coupons and were entered into the draw..

Be sure to stay safe when riding your bicycle

As students settle back into their routine, the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) encourages parents to refresh on road safety tips with their kids and to consider incorporating cycling as a way to get to and from school. “Cycling is an active and economical way to get kids to and from school,” said Jeff Walker, VP Public Affairs. “We encourage parents to talk to their children about proper bike safety, to demonstrate proper habits, and to regularly check their cycling equipment.” Here are some helpful tips for cyclists: Road Safety -- Ride on the right hand side of the road in single file -- When crossing the road at a crosswalk remember to dismount your bike and walk it across -- Ride with your head up and be aware of cars, pedestrians, other cyclists and road hazards -- Be alert and don’t ride with ear phones in

-- Be familiar with hand signals and always be sure to use them -- Know and obey road signs - remember that we all have to share the road Equipment -- Make sure your bike is a proper fit -- Helmets do have expiration dates - it is important to check the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) sticker on the back for the expiry date. Mandatory helmet legislation now exists in a number of Canadian provinces. -- Have a bell or horn on your bike -- Regularly check the tires for air -- When at school lock the bike securely in a designated area As students make their way back to the classroom this fall, many will be assisted by one of the over 80,000 dedicated student volunteers who participate in the Canadian Automobile Association’s School Safety Patrol program.

Delisle downs Warman in season opener By TERRY PUGH

T

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

he Delisle Rebels got off to a running start in their bid to repeat as the provincial 9-man high school football champions. The Rebels downed the host Warman Wolverines 5331 in the season opener at Neufeld Field on Friday, September 7. But despite the final score, it wasn’t a cakewalk. The momentum shifted several times during the game, as the Rebels staked out an early 16-0 lead in the opening half, only to see Warman rally for 12 points in the second quarter. Delisle regained a big cushion just before the half with a late touchdown drive and then continued to pad their lead in the third quarter. Warman made the score respectable with a little over a minute left in the game, when quarterback Logan Misskey connected with receiver Spencer Ulrich for a

touchdown. The Wolverines’ defense was led by Cody Parsons, who seemed to be all over the field, but the Rebels’ skilled offense took advantage of every opportunity that came their way. “It was really a game of momentum shifts,” said Delisle head coach Ken Byers. “We’re happy with what we were able to do offensively, but we also had 11 penalties that cost us over 100 yards, and we really have to work on fixing those mental errors.” Wolverines’ head coach Tyler Scheidt agreed that penalties were the difference in the game. “We gave up 14 points on dropped balls - one kickoff and one punt,” he said. “Those things really hurt you. When you’re going to play the defending provincial champs, and go up against a great program like Delisle has, you can’t beat yourself by making those kinds of mistakes.” Scheidt said despite the

loss, there were some positives coming out of the game. “I thought we did some good things offensively,” he said. “Logan Misskey was able to get the ball deep to his receivers, but we really need to work on improving our running game. We need to move the chains better. We have to be more consistent at getting those first downs, because a lot of the time our offense was off the field too quick and our defense was getting tired.” The Warman coach said the game was a good test for the players, and will help get them prepared for next Friday’s contest against their arch-rivals, the Martensville Royals. “It’s always a great game when Warman plays Martensville,” said Scheidt. “It doesn’t’ matter what the teams’ records are. They’ll be fired up and so will we. It will be a huge challenge for us, but we’ll be ready.” Continued on Page 23 Please see “WARMAN WOLVERINES”

Spencer Ulrich of the Warman Wolverines battles Delisle Rebels defender Taylor Barber for possession of the ball during a high school football game in Warman last Friday. The Rebels won the game 53-31.

Riders sweep Winnipeg at Banjo Bowl

52 points or one point, it doesn’t matter to the Saskatchewan Roughriders. It probably doesn’t matter much to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers either. The Riders completed a sweep of the Bombers on Sunday with a nail-biting, gutwrenching, cliffhanger of a game in Winnipeg which ended on a last-second 40-yard field goal by Rider kicker Sandro Deangelis. The Riders won the game 25-24 seven days after destroying their prairie rivals 52-0 on Labour Day in Regina. This game featured seven lead changes. The fact is the Bombers were up 24-22 with 28 seconds to go and I wasn’t sure rookie Rider quarterback Drew Willy could march his team down the field and give his team the chance to win. We’d seen Darian Durant do it many times before, but he was knocked out of this game with a hip injury. No, I was starting to prepare for a long, blistering week back home if the Riders were to lose. They could have

RIDER INSIDER ROD PEDERSEN

Voice of the Riders Roughriders Radio Network

lost very easily, having taken double the amount of penalties Winnipeg did and losing the turnover battle as well. But Willy had other ideas and so did Deangelis, the most-accurate field goal kicker in CFL history. “I’ve been in a lot of big games with Sandro Deangelis and that’s why he’s here,” Rider coach Corey Chamblin asserted after the game. “I’ve been in the trenches with a lot of guys that are here and that’s why we have them. I believe in each and every guy.” It was a feeling from agony to elation in 28 quick seconds as the Riders raced down the field and ripped the win right out of the Bombers’ hands. And now the agony

resides in Winnipeg where the Bombers are 2-8 and thinking about next year. It’s bad there right now. Real bad. As for the Roughriders, it was a jubilant plane ride home right after the game and the buzz was that this team’s not content with their modest two game winning streak. They want three in a row. Four in a row. And so on. It starts for them next Sunday in Montreal, one of the few places the Riders won during their ill-fated 2011 season. It’s going to take a monster effort to beat the Alouettes and likely some luck too. Certainly the team has had its share in the month of September after suffering through a ridiculously long five-game

losing streak in July and August. Chamblin preached it then just like he is now; if they work hard and play honest, things will turn around. “Good teams find ways to win. I told the guys before the game if you want it, you can have it,” Chamblin said on CKRM’s postgame show. “They fought to the end and we got it. I told them after the game I don’t know why you’re so happy, because I expected to win!” Good Lord this season has been a ring-a-ding-dong-dandy. A thrill a minute. These Riders have made their fans laugh, cry, scream in anger but also in celebration. They’ve had some breaks, but had them taken away as well. And there’s still a very long ways to go beginning with Sunday’s game in Montreal. But as far as the wins go, Corey Chamblin’s Riders will take them however they come. “We’ve had a lot of things stolen from us this year so it was nice to steal one like this.”

Area high school football stars help to bolster Hilltops lineup By PAT PECKOVER

peckpatr@uregina.ca

T

he defending Canadian champions have come along way since losing their opening game of the season. The Hilltops defeated the visiting Regina Prairie Thunder 24-9 on Saturday night, but it wasn’t until the second quarter that they got things going. After spotting the Thunder an early 9-3 lead in the first quarter, Hilltops quartervack Matt Harder connected with Graham Unruh for a 25yard touchdown pass and run play to give the home side a 10-9 lead. Two more touchdowns were added in the second half, one by Tom Shockey, formerly of the Delisle Rebels high school football team, and the other by Kyle McGinnis. Matt Karpinka came in as quarterback in the fourth quarter in relief for an injured Karpinka. Mike Waldron was the defensive star for the Hilltops. Shockey isn’t the only high school football star from the area to play for the Hilltops this season. Dylan Larson of Vanscoy, played with the Rebels last year; Larson had a tryout with the Hilltops earlier this summer and was told he had some potential. “I just wanted to try and show that I can do stuff against the starting line,” he said. Larson agrees with Shockey that it feels good that so many players from the smaller towns are contributing to 12-man football in Saskatoon.

Hilltops from the area Kyle Gordon (61) A former Delisle Rebel, Gor-

don is in his fourth year on the offensive line with the Hilltops. The 6’3”, 260 pound centre hails from Vanscoy but played with the Rebels in high school.

Jared Haight (69) In his third year with the Hilltops, the former Clavet Cougar plays defensive end. Haight is listed at 6’5” and 225 pounds. Joel Haight (34) This third year Topper is a product of the Clavet Cougars and has a bigger role to fill in the secondary this year with the loss of 10 starters. Haight is listed at 6’3” and 200 pounds. Matt Harder (10) Harder is the back-up quarterback this year, a big change from third string last year. In his fourth year with the Hilltops, Harder is listed at 6’2” and 195 pounds. He is a product of the Clavet Cougars. Nathan Heide (58) The 6’2”, 320 pound offensive lineman was one of five Saskatchewan players on the 45man national team roster that won gold at the International Federation of American Football (IFAF) under-19 world championship held in Texas in July. Heide is in his second year with the Hilltops and is a product of the Warman Wolverines high school team. Dylan Larson (6) Larson was picked up by the Hilltops after a tryout this summer. As a rookie he probably won’t see much playing time, but this former member of the Delisle Rebels played in the Ed Henick Senior Bowl this summer as a member of the North team. He was on last year’s Rebel team that won the high school provincial cham-

pionship in nine-man football. Larson is listed as a 6’0”, 180 pound defensive back.

Wayndel Lewis (22) Lewis, a 6’0”, 230 pound running back, expects to get more playing time and more yards in his third year with the Toppers. He is a former member of the Warman Wolverines. Jared Lowen (63) A former member of the Hague Panthers who play six-man football, Lowen is a rookie on the Hilltops’ offensive line. At 6’3” and 340 pounds, he is expected to make an impression on opposing teams. Lowen was on the North team at the Ed Henick Senior Bowl, the game which features the best graduating players in Saskatchewan. Dustin Payne (18) This second year defensive back is a former member of the Delisle Rebels. At 6’1” and 195 pounds, he helped Saskatchewan win gold at the Football Canada Cup under-18 championships this summer. He was the Rebels’ special teams player of the year in 2009 and the team MVP in 2012. He was named to the All Star team at the Canada Cup. Vince Riley (44) At 6’4” and 227 pounds, this third year linebacker covers the field faster than you’d expect. Riley played with the Martensville Royals in high school. Tom Shockey (21) This 6’0”, 210 pound running back is already making an impression in his fifth year with the Hilltops. He scored two touchdowns in their opening match this year, setting the bar high for the rest of the season. Shockey, from Vanscoy,

Panthers face longer road trips this season By TERRY PUGH

T

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

he Hague Panthers will have to be road warriors this year if they hope to make the playoffs. A league scheduling change has shifted the Panthers away from playing other 6-man high school football teams in their immediate geographic area. The Panthers are classified as a 1A team, while neighbouring centres like Aberdeen and Rosthern are in the 2A category. As a result, the Panthers will be racking up the miles over the course of the season as they take on the likes of Central Butte, Davidson, Hanley, Loreburn and Outlook. That makes their home games pretty special, said Panthers head coach Clay Kirby “It’ll be interesting,” said Kirby in an interview on September 7. “It’s going to be a long ride to Central Butte, for sure, but that’s just part of the deal. What I’m really looking forward to is the home games, and the two football jamboree weekends we’re going to be hosting this year.” The football jamborees, which feature short games with other schools over the course of a Saturday, provide an opportunity for junior players on the football team to gain valuable experience on the field in game situations. “The teams are made up of Grade 9s and 10s,” said Kirby. “They’ll get three games in on each day, and that’s really im-

portant for a football program in a school because it helps you build for the future.” The Panthers are hosting two jamborees. The first is Saturday, Sept. 22 and the second is Saturday, October 13. The team’s regular season schedule kicks off with two consecutive home games. The first is Friday, September 14 when they host Loreburn. The second is Friday, September 21 when LCBI (Outlook) comes to town. Game time for both contests is 4:00 p.m. at Hague High School,. The Panthers hit the road for their third game of the regular season on Friday, September 28 when they travel to Central Butte. On Thursday, October 4, Hague hosts Hanley. The final regular season game is Friday, October 11 when the Panthers travel to Davidson. Playoffs start Saturday, October 20 for the top 4 teams in the league. Kirby, who returned to Hague High School as Principal midway through last year, said he’s happy to be back in the community and coaching the football program. He said the football team is rebuilding this year, but it’s got a strong group of core players. “Our quarterback, Luke Ginter, is a leader on the team both on and off the field,” he said. Kirby said his years spent working with the junior football players in Delisle was a good experience, and noted that he’s a firm believer in the importance of strong athletic programs in schools. He noted the senior girls

volleyball program in Hague has consistently been strong over the years, and said that’s a huge source of pride for the team, the school and the community. “When kids get involved in athletics, whether its football or volleyball or basketball or whatever, then they’re jacked up about coming to school, and they are more likely to pay attention and be involved in

their academic classes,” said Kirby. “It makes for a more positive school culture. One of the rules is that a student has to perform well academically if they’re going to be part of a sports team, so it’s a big commitment for the students. If they participate in a weekend tournament, they have to work that much harder to stay on top of their academic assignments.”

Evanisky said he saw a lot of positives, but there are still things that need fixing. “We’ll watch the game film and break it down to see what we can do better,” he said. “There were little mistakes that we can’t afford to have happen. But we’ll re-

It’s always exciting and we’re looking forward to it.”

Byers said while he’s happy to get the win, it’s still a long season, and notes there’s a lot of work yet to do before playoffs. “Some of the kids still haven’t got their playbook down,” he said. “Those are things we need to clean up.” Byers said despite losing a lot of their top players to graduation, there is still a lot of experience and depth on the team. He noted that the team has two experienced quarterbacks in Kyle Richardson and Riley Derdall, and Tanner Olson, Colton MacKenzie, Cole Ward and Taylor Barber are expected to make big contributions as well. “We had five of our players make the Senior Bowl last year, and four of them are now playing for the Saskatoon Hilltops or the Regina Prairie Thunder junior teams,” he said. “So we have some big shoes to fill, but our younger guys are stepping up well. They did pretty good today and hopefully we can make the playoffs and get to the provincial final again this year. That’s our goal.”

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

Condolences are extended to Brandi and Clint Sampson, grandparents Lee & Diane Tracksell, Kim and Donna Sampson, great grandparents Isobel Tracksell and Peter Hiebert and relatives at Borden on the death of baby Cohen William Peter on September 4th. The service was held September 8th at Mayfair United Church in Saskatoon. Condolences to Dan and Alana Gunsch of Borden on the death of their newborn baby boy William Daniel, born September 1st and passed away September 4th. The main area of the Borden School Gym is temporarily closed while the roof and ceiling are being redone. There is no structural damage and the gym is not condemned as the rumour says that is circulating around. The renovating was to be done over the summer

at the same time the classrooms were all repainted and some renovations done, but the crew weren’t able to get to Borden until end of August. Students are practicing volleyball in Langham for the next month or two. Enrollment at the school is 104, which includes 11 Kindergarten who will start the week of September 17th. The Borden School Community Council is holding a Trade Show on September 12th at the Community Centre at 6:30 p.m. showcasing what the school and community has to offer and the new staff will be introduced at that time. A bridal shower honoring Natalie Stevenson was held September 6th in the Borden Seniors Room. Natalie and Colin Elliot are being married October 6th in Kelvington and will be residing in their trailer in the farmyard of Earle and Jan Elliot. Linda Dyck was emcee and she introduced the head table –

Natalie, friend Kelly Grzes, bridesmaid Darliss Volgelgesang and her daughter Willow, flower girl and Colin’s mom Jan Elliot. Linda gave some of the bride-elects’ history – raised in Kelvington, took Early Childhood Education at SIASST and is presently employed in Saskatoon at a day care and as a nanny. Kim Osmond had a game about What’s in your purse and having most points was Gloria Derbowka and Mary Saunders, who also won the Memory Game – 30 kitchen items in a tub that you had a few minutes to look at then tried to remember everything. The community gift of cash and the many other gifts were presented to Natalie, who opened them and then they were passed around, following which Natalie thanked everyone for coming, for the many gifts, to those who arranged the shower and the lunch which was enjoyed by all in attendance.

Welcome to new families moving in to Borden and area – Dominique Kapsu and her son Stan in Grade 4 with Ed Golding, Daniela Tomilenko, son Vincent and daughters Maya and Tamara Fon waiting for their dad to arrive from Cameroon, living at 110 Main St., Dale and Brenda Scruby who have moved in to Idylwyld Court. A new business has opened up in Borden, with hairdresser Winnie Sware opening up Blossoming styles in her home at 11 Derbowka Drive on September 5th. Winnie owns the Hair Options salon in Dalmeny and is operating there and at her home in Borden. The Borden Friendship Club held their potluck supper and August birthdays on August 29th, with 30 out to enjoy the evening. Blowing out the candles on the cake brought by Ann and Don Brand were Audrey Baker, Anne Kohut and Rueben Derksen. Special guests for the evening were Orville Middleton, owner of the Borden Bridge and friend Anne

CLARK’S CROSSING

Academic year brings excitement to Bethany College in Hepburn Submitted by Bethany College Staff

Bethany College, Hepburn

T

he once quiet halls of Bethany College are now buzzing with activity with the return of students. We are excited to welcome 59 new College Freshman students this fall, coming from British Columbia, Ontario, Alberta, Northwest Territories, Manitoba and Saskatchewan! It is great to see returning students and new students interacting through the various orientation events that are planned to help in their adjustment to College life. Within these activities, we hosted “Parent Orientation,” which provides an opportunity for parents to be more fully informed of what and who Bethany College is. At this event, Gil Dueck (Instructor of Theology, pictured below) presented information on how Bethany College desires to transform students’ lives through discipleship within community. He shared how our two year Diploma program has three key objectives; namely, to: • Provide an understanding of central Christian convictions through the study of the Bible, theology and other relevant disciplines. • Guide students through a process of focused identity exploration with a view to discerning future directions. • Help students to see their skills and abilities as part of their “calling” and challenge them to use those gifts in service to others. Parents learned more about the life stage their son/daughter is entering and how Bethany is supporting students in the midst of this. Bethany College is a place that allows students to have the opportunity to navigate through the questions of life within the safe community environment. Students and parents were in awe of all the various changes on campus, from the Kitchen renovation to the retrofit of Classroom B161. Our brand new renovated Kitchen was a flurry of activity as the Food Services Team prepared for all the students and their parents! It was fun to observe the laughter and camaraderie around the tables as students and parents enjoyed yummy food and connected with faculty and staff. If you

haven’t a chance to view our new Kitchen or experience a Bethany meal, feel free to stop by -- you will not regret it! Thanks to all the many donors, alumni and volunteers who made these projects become a reality! The 2012-13 college year is starting off well, and we are excited to continue to see how God changes lives here to make a difference in our world! For further details of Bethany College events, please check out our website at www.bethany.sk.ca.

SPONSOR SPOTLIGHTS Pet groomer sets up shop after ‘falling in love’ with the community

When it comes to roller coasters people often head for Six Flag s. However, when it’s time for you r pet’s grooming experience it has to be Six Wags. Elisa Prestley started Six Wag s Grooming Salon to satisfy her love of cats and dogs. As a groomer for the past seven years, Prestley recently moved to Warman and found there was a void to be fille d so she has set up shop. “Six Wags is unique because I offer everything in grooming that anyone would need from simple bath brushes to hand scissors and breed specific haircuts right up to the deshedding ‘furrminator’ trea tments,” she explains. “No dog is too small or big for me to groom and , as an added bonus, I also groom cats.” Prestley adds that Six Wag s also has various walk-in services such as nail trimming or grin ding as well as face trims and ever y-

thing in between. “This is a new venture for me and so far I’ve enjoyed how welcom ing the community has been,” she continues. “I’ve been meeting som e great people from Warman and the surrounding towns. I also love the fact I get to work from home.”

Blades double Raiders in front of packed house in Warman By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

T

he Saskatoon Blades fed off the energy of a soldout crowd at the 1600-seat Legends Centre in Warman on Saturday night, beating the visiting Prince Albert Raiders 6-3. The win avenged a 6-2 loss suffered the night before in Prince Albert and evened the Blades’ pre-season series against their arch-rivals at one game apiece. “I thought our game was a little more structured tonight,” said Blades Associate Coach Dave Struch, who handled the bench duties in the absence of head coach Lorne Molleken. “We definitely had a more physical presence out there and our defensive zone coverage was a lot better.” Struch said the Blades’ forecheck made the difference. “Last night we weren’t able to generate any offense in the neutral zone because we didn’t play a physical game, but tonight our forecheck was really good,” he said. “We got the puck in deep and everybody was in there banging and crashing and it gave us an opportunity to get some pucks to the net and create some offense. We consistently had two guys in front of their net banging at the puck so we got some good scoring opportunities and we capitalized on a number of them.” The Raiders opened the scoring with two quick goals before the first period was five minutes old, as former Warman Wildcats Bantam AA forward Logan McVeigh beat starting Blades’ netminder Derek Davies with a quick wrist shot from the low slot, followed by another tally by

Shane Danyluk twenty seconds later. But even though the Blades outshot the Raiders 15-5 in the opening frame and had plenty of scoring opportunities, they didn’t get on the board until Matej Stransky batted a rebound past Raiders’ goaltender Cole Holwenko with six minutes left in the period. After that it was all Blades. Brenden Walker tied the game with a power play marker less than a minute into the second period. Brett Stovin and Duncan Siemens added to the Blades’ lead with two more power play goals midway through the frame, and Christian Stockl made it 5-2 before the period was out. The ice was tilted heavily in the home team’s favour, with the Blades outshooting the Raiders 34-8 after 40 minutes. The teams traded goals in the final period, as veteran defenseman Darren Dietz scored shorthanded for the Blades and Jonas Knutsen replied for the Raiders. Both teams switched goaltenders midway through the game, with Rylan Parenteau between the pipes for PA and Nathan Alalouf in net for Saskatoon. The Blades registered 43 shots on net to the Raiders’ 26 shots for the whole game. The Blades have two more exhibition games against Regina this weekend before the WHL regular season gets underway in earnest, and Struch says the team has plenty of work to do in the meantime. “We still have to figure out line combinations and there are some high-end players who still have to be put into the lineup,” he said, adding additional cuts will have to be made. With 5 goalies current-

TERRY PUGH | CLARK’S CROSSING GAZETTE

ly on the roster, Struch said those decisions will be made in the next week or so. Veteran goaltender Andrey Makarov is likely to get the start during the last pre-season game against Regina. It all comes down to building a solid foundation for this year’s Memorial Cup run. The Blades host the championship tournament in May 2013, and Struch said good defense is the key to making a successful run for the national major junior title. “In this league you have to be really strong defensively in order to create offense, so that will obviously be our focus,” he said.

Saskatoon Blades defenseman Brett Lernout gets set to block a shot in front of netminder Nathan Alalouf as Spencer Meyer of the Prince Albert Raiders is closely covered by Nelson Nogier of the Blades. Saskatoon won the game 6-3 in front of a capacity crowd at the Legends Centre in Warman.

Blades look to return to Legends Centre The Saskatoon Blades certainly felt at home at the Legends Centre in Warman. The capacity crowd that packed the new arena in Warman to witness the WHL pre-season game between the Blades and the Prince Albert Raiders helped spur the Blue and Gold to their first win along the road to the memorial Cup. And if Blades Associate coach Dave Struch has his way, the Legends Centre will

see a lot more of the team in the years to come. “This facility is fantastic,” said Struch in a post-game interview. “I’ve had the opportunity to work with some friends of mine who coach summer hockey out here, and really, this arena is second to none. It’s absolutely first-rate. I really commend the City of Warman. The people out here have been fantastic.” Struch said he’s hoping

the team management decides to have more games, and possibly training camp, at the Legends Centre. “It’s not my call,” he said. “But I’m hoping the powers-thatbe will make that decision. It would be nice if the City of Saskatoon had one or two of these types of facilities, but really, there’s not another one anywhere around here that comes close to this building and this rink.”
