Police target bad drivers in Orange Zone sites During this past Thanksgiving weekend North Central RCMP Traffic Services members were busy conducting enforcement focused on the Battleford and Lloydminster regions. RCMP members from Saskatoon, Prince Albert, and North Battleford participated in a variety of enforcement activities. On October 7th, members set up an enforcement operation in a road construction work zone. Workers replacing a bridge on Eastbound Highway 16, 5 km Southeast of Maidstone were working through the long weekend. RCMP Traffic Services mem-

bers set up a laser peed device in the work zone throughout the day. At approximately 3:30 P.M. the laser operator observed a vehicle entering the work zone at high speed. A laser measurement of the vehicle revealed a speed of 134 km/hr in the 60 km work zone. RCMP officers flagged down a black SUV and arrested the driver for Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle, a Criminal Code Offence. A 42 year-old Regina man has been arrested and released from custody. He will appear in North Battleford court on November 21st. The vehicle

was impounded by police. The owner will be required to participate in a hearing before the Highway Traffic Board before it is released back to him. During this particular traffic operation a total of 50 charges were laid for various offences, including 23 charges for speeding in the Orange Zone. The name of the 42 year old can not be released at this time as formal charges have not been laid. Remember to slow to 60 km/hr in the Orange Zone when passing highway workers and equipment. Highway construction and maintenance zones can be dangerous.

Tenders for Highway 305 open Construction work expected to begin soon By TERRY PUGH

C

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

onstruction of the new highway between Warman and Martensville is finally going ahead, with initial surveying and gravel-crushing operations likely to start this fall and winter. The tender for construction of a subgrade and surfacing structure for the new Highway 305 was opened Thursday, October 4 by the provincial Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure. The tenders close October 23, and the decision on the successful bidder will likely be made within a week of the tender’s closing date. The total distance for the roadwork is 18.23 kilometers, and includes grading and paving of the new roadway. The new highway will connect Highway 11 north of Warman to the

existing junction with Highway 12 north of Martensville. The construction tender for the highway also includes upgrading and paving of Range Road 3053 (10th Avenue) in Martensville from Lutheran Road to the intersection with Main Street in Martensville. The actual completion date for the new highway will depend on the schedule laid out by the successful contractor, according to Allan Churko, regional executive-director for Saskatchewan Highways and Infrastructure. “We expect that the right of way will certainly be cleared this fall and winter,” said Churko in an interview on Friday, October 5. “Those areas where there are trees and vegetation will be removed.

istory was made last Saturday when 249 combines lined up in a stunning visual display to break a world record for Harvest for Kids (H4K). Thousands of spectators converged on a field north of Dalmeny on Saturday, October 6 during the Thanksgiving weekend to witness H4K’s attempt to break a Guinness World record for the greatest number of combines to simultaneously harvest a single field. All day Friday combines made their way to the site, and early Saturday morning as dawn broke, the lineup looked nearly complete. A day of activities was planned, leading up to the main event. A drama group entertained while stooks were harvested in an old time threshing demonstration. Kids could enjoy climbing walls, inflatable play structures, a carnival, and horse or wagon rides.

WORLD RECORD But crowds were here for one reason: to see Saskatchewan farmers break a world record. 249 swaths on a half section of land waited to be harvested. Chad Doerksen, a member of the H4K core planning group, offered the original plot of land for the harvest, located across from the Barn Playhouse. But the field suf-

fered major water damage from 26 inches of rain and in the end was not suitable for this event. Brent Baerg, another member of the core planning group, then offered his field, just 4 miles north of Dalmeny to H4K. The line-up of combines spanned a full mile, disappearing into the distance. Drivers fired up their engines just before 2:00 p.m. and following a countdown, began the harvest. Wendell Andres is the Regional Director for Children’s Camps International (CCI) in Saskatchewan since 2010, and the coordinator of the Saskatchewan H4K event. Andres said, to qualify for the record, “the combines need to run at least five minutes, so we’ve got our time keepers and our official people. The combines have to go really slow, a mile and a half an hour. That’s going to be the hardest thing, these guys are just going to want to race, and that won’t help because we gotta go five minutes.”

Harvest for Kids is a faith based venture that works together with CCI to support children’s camping programs in countries like Cambodia, India and Cuba. Funds raised from this event will allow many children a first-time opportunity to go to camp.

BUILDING ON THE PAST Area farmers knew about the record set in Winkler in 2010 and according to Andres said, “We like what they did there, and we think we can beat those guys.” That set the dream in motion. “We’ve been meeting with a core group of farmers for almost two years now planning this, so what you see here is a lot of hours from some very faithful volunteers,” said Andres. International Director for H4K, Derek Unrau, who was coordinator of the Winkler 2010 event said, “This is excitement all over again, it’s aweContinued on Page 8 Please see “WORLD RECORD”

wo people were injured as a result of a 2-vehicle collision early Wednesday morning, October 3, at the intersection of Highway 11 and Wansukewin Road. The collision occurred at 7:43 a.m., according to Constable Matt Hiscock of the Warman RCMP detachment. Hiscock said a southbound Honda Civic struck a westbound Saturn Ion as the Saturn crossed Highway 11. Each vehicle had a single male occu-

pant. Both drivers were taken to hospital with undetermined injuries, but the driver of the Saturn Ion was the more seriously injured of the two. “The Saturn was t-boned by the Honda, and subsequently rolled into the northwest ditch,” explained Hiscock. The driver was of the Saturn was trapped inside the vehicle and had to be extracted using the jaws of life by the Saskatoon Fire Department, with the assistance of the Warman Fire Department. Weather and road condi-

tions at the time of the collision were good. Traffic on Highway 11 southbound was restricted to one lane during the busy morning rush hour while police conducted their investigation and the site was cleaned up. Hiscock said the driver of the Saturn Ion was “lucky to survive” the impact of the collision and the subsequent rollover. “He was cut to the head and was taken to Royal University Hospital by MD Ambulance,” said Hiscock.

SAFER & IMPROVED HIGHWAYS

For Positive Change

MORE THAN $631 MILLION INVESTED IN SASKATCHEWAN HIGHWAYS IN 2012-13 Hwy 11 stretch between Macdowall & Rosthern open Highway 11 twinning between Prince Albert and Saskatoon took a big leap forward with 36 kilometres of new northbound lanes opening from north of Rosthern to south of Macdowall, providing a safer drive for families, farmers and shippers. The stretch of highway was officially opened on Wednesday, October 3. “Our government is proud to invest in this important work on Highway 11,” said Gerry Ritz, Minister of Agriculture and Member of Parliament for Battlefords-Lloydminster, on behalf of Steven Fletcher, Minister of State (Transport). “The twinning of this highway has created good paying jobs in our region as well as improved the safety of motorists in our communities. Our government will continue to focus on job creation and strengthening the economy across Canada, including right here in Saskatchewan.” “Highway 11 is a very busy corridor, carrying upwards of 14,000 vehicles per day including commuters, tourists, shippers and many more,” Batoche MLA Delbert Kirsch said on behalf of Highways and Infrastructure Minister Don McMorris. “The progress we make at each stage of construction has a huge benefit for all motorists.” A total of 36 kilometres of new northbound lanes are now open to motorists from 5.5 kilometres north of Rosthern to 1.5 kilometres south of Macdowall. As part of this project, new southbound lanes are also being constructed around Duck Lake to provide safer highway access and improve traffic flow for Highway 11 travellers. Traffic will continue to run on the old highway at Duck Lake until the new southbound lanes are open, within the next two weeks, weather permitting. The opening allows traffic to safely travel this portion of Highway 11 as work continues on the remaining 12 kilometres north and south of Macdowall that will be finished next year. That last section will complete the twinning of Highway 11 from Saskatoon to Prince Albert. As the new lanes are opened, motorists are reminded to be cautious, alert and aware of signs directing traffic and are advised to slow to 60 kilometres per hour in the construction Orange Zone when passing workers and equipment. The federal and provincial governments are each contributing up to $62 million to the

Highway 11 twinning project. Federal investment is provided through the Building Canada Fund to support economic growth in Saskatchewan and across Canada. Canada’s Economic Action Plan 2012 focuses on job creation, economic growth and longterm prosperity. Strengthening infrastructure across the country is an important part of this plan. Thanks to the Government of Canada’s leadership, and our strong economic and financial fundamentals, the Canadian economy has recovered from the global recession better than most other industrialized countries. Canada has been a leader among G-7 countries throughout the recovery, with nearly 770,000 net new jobs created since July 2009. Find out more about the opportunities in the Economic Action Plan 2012 at www.budget.gc.ca/2012/homeaccueil-eng.html.

Highway 305 upgrade one of eight new hwy. projects The Province of Saskatchewan is investing an additional $50 million dollars into eight priority highway improvement projects across the province. This makes the 2012-13 construction season investment, a total of $631.5 million, Saskatchewan’s second largest Highways and Infrastructure budget, second only to 2008. “This record level of investment by our government demonstrates our commitment to investing in Saskatchewan’s Highways,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Don Mc-

Morris said. “Infrastructure was the top priority raised by the Saskatchewan people when discussing the provincial government’s growth plan with our MLAs.” The $50 million dollar investment will be used to tender eight additional projects. Six of the eight highways are substandard Thin Membrane Surface (TMS) roads which will be upgraded to a paved standard; the remainder are repaving projects. Highways slated for upgrade include: Highway 15 - Grading 13 km east from Highway 11 at Kenaston; Highway 22 - Grading and surfacing from Southey to Earl Grey; Highway 41 Repaving 10 km near Melfort from Highway 368 to the east; Highway 42 - First phase of upgrading, between Tuxford and Eyebrow; Highway 51 - Paving 10 km from Major to Highway 317; Highway 58 - Grading and paving between Lafleche and Gravelbourg; Highway 305 Grading and paving between Warman and Martensville; and Highway 55 - Repaving near Meadow Lake from east of the Tolko access to Hwy. 903. Good roads make businesses in rural Saskatchewan more competitive, make our communities more attractive places to invest and improve safety and mobility for our people,” Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM) President David Marit said. The additional $50 million in highways funding will come from the Growth and Financial Security Fund.

Get used to it: adjusting to a less predictable Saskatchewan Of course, that resulted in some positives like the establishment of medicare, more rural hospitals and Crown corporations that still generally provide competitive utility rates. But the combination of an inconsistent agriculture economic base and governments focused on filling in the shortcomings resulted in rather predictable stagnation. Well, the a few developments in the past week suggest today’s Saskatchewan may no longer be in this same predictable pattern. Recently released population number showed an additional 22,154 people in Saskatchewan in July 2012 compared with a year earlier – the largest single-year increase this province has experienced since 1921. What’s truly amazing, however, is this does not appear to be one of one- or twoyear growth spurts we experienced in the past that tended to be followed by decline. The province’s population of 1,079,958 is nearly 80,000 more than when it again cracked the million-person barrier in July 2007 under the previous

For decades in this province, Saskatchewan and its politics shared one common trait. Both were rather predictable. The province as a whole was all too dependent on the uncertainty of the agriculture and would suffer from both the whims of Mother Nature and the commodity markets. Good years would inevitably be followed by bad years. And Saskatchewan would slip from “have” to “have-not” status as a result. We always seemed destined to be the poor cousins to our Alberta neighbours with their oil wealth – the place our kids went to find decent-paying jobs. For this reason, the population rose and dipped somewhere just shy of the million-population mark. And our politics seemed to follow a similar pattern. For as naturally free-enterprise-minded as most Saskatchewan people were, the uncertainty in agriculture led voters to elect provincial government sympathetic to providing producers and rural Saskatchewan communities with support programs.

MURRAY MANDRYK

Provincial Politics

NDP and 100,000 more than its most recent low ebb of a decade ago. This is phenomenal growth that we haven’t experienced in 80 years – something that’s moved beyond the usual up-and-down cycle. Of course, with it comes to challenges and the need for adjustments. That many new faces behind this population boom are new Canadians who are changing the very face of Saskatchewan itself. These new arrivals are coming here determined to make a better life for themselves are forcing governments to re-focus on issues that accommodate the needs of this growth. There is more infrastructure and housing demands – especially, in our cities. And neither house prices nor rent in this province are as cheap as they once were. In fact, with demand

driving up the price of such things, other things that were once predictable in this province like a relatively low minimum wage are no longer as acceptable. After all, with a job shortage in this province, it is only logical to make the minimum wage more competitive. To that end, the Sask. Party government recently announced last week the nation’s lowest $9.50 an hour minimum wage would be increased by 50 cents to $10 an hour. Gone are the days of predictably lower wages doled out in a sluggish Saskatchewan economy, which takes us to another big indicator of our newfound unpredictability. A decade or more ago, no one would have predicted that the province’s still-agriculture dominated economy would be handing out salaries comparable with anywhere else in the country. The government also recently announced the average weekly Saskatchewan wage of $939.21 is now the third best in the country – only behind Alberta and Newfoundland and Labrador (another province experiencing change because of new oil wealth).

Again, one might expect to see social problems that tend to follow high wages. This, too, is the changing face of a less-

predictable place. But there may be something to be said for this newfound unpredictability.

Flu shots best defense against annual influenza, says doctor By TERRY PUGH

I

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

t’s flu season in Saskatchewan, and officials with the Saskatoon Health Region are reminding residents to protect themselves and their loved ones with free flu immunization shots available at several clinics throughout the region in the coming weeks. “By getting immunized, you’re protecting not only yourself, but also those around you,” said Dr. Ross Findlater, Deputy Medical Health Officer for the Saskatoon Health Region. “It’s a good idea to take advantage of these clinics, because the flu shot is free, and it works.” In an interview on Thursday, October 4, Findlater said the health region scheduled a week-long flu shot clinic in Saskatoon at Prairieland Park starting Tuesday, October 9. There are also flu shots available on October 16 in Martensville, October 18 in Warman and Aberdeen, October 24 in Langham, and October 25 in Borden, Delisle and Waldheim. Findlater said the health region is not expecting any particularly virulent strains of influenza this fall. “The type of influenza expected this fall in Saskatchewan is nothing dramatically different than normal,” he explained. “And the vaccine we have is along the lines of what we have used for several years. It has 3 strains of influenza virus in it. It’s not a live vaccine. The viruses are dead. These are the antigens in the vaccine. The vaccine is based on the most likely strains to be coming around this fall.” Findlater said people shouldn’t underestimate the impact of influenza. “We have influenza ever year in this province, and every year it kills people,” he said. “When we’re looking at the stats from last year, we had a little under 200 confirmed cases of flu and a quarter of those cases required hospitalization.” He said the age groups that are most vulnerable to influenza are young children and seniors, and those people with chronic medical prob-

lems and risk factors such as heart disease or lung disease. Another vulnerable group is

pregnant women. “Those are the people that clearly need to be immu-

nized,” he said. “But keep in mind, that even if you’re not in any of those vulnerable groups, you may be around people who are vulnerable, and that’s why it makes sense to be immunized yourself, so you don’t spread the virus to vulnerable people.” Findlater said the vaccine is safe. “It has a good safety record, and its been around for a long time,” he said. “There are minor side effects, like a sore arm, but more serious side effects are extremely rare.” He said in addition to the public flu clinics, residents of seniors care homes throughout the region will be immunized at their places of residence.

Region’s growing culture a draw for Artists on Tour More than 30 Western Canadian fine artists will come together to exhibit hundreds of works of art at TCU Place this fall when Artists on Tour makes its debut in Saskatoon. As 2012’s premiere visual arts event, Artists on Tour will feature 30-plus renowned painters, including painters, bronze artists, stone carvers and high-end artisans, who will share their work for three full days in a unique public exhibition space. The show runs October 12-14 at TCU Place and admission is free. Show hours are Friday from 1 - 9 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Saskatoon was the top choice as host city for the fall tour. Jonn Einerssen, a key organizer and internationally renowned landscape painter, was eager to return to the province of his roots to pay tribute to the prairies, which inspired and fueled his own successful art career. Einerssen is best known for his striking, light-infused paintings of dramatic prairie skies and vistas. “As a small town kid from Wynyard, trips to the big city of Saskatoon were a regular adventure for my family. Those are some of my fondest memories, so it has been

a pleasure to watch this city blossom into one of the most vibrant, energetic centers in the country.” Einerssen, who now lives in BC, makes annual treks to his home province to gather material for his paintings, and to connect with old friends and local artists. He says despite its sharp growth, he still experiences the same friendly small town spirit he always knew in Saskatoon. He is also observing a growing cultural maturity in the city. “It is really exciting time for Saskatoon, and perfect time to bring the finest creative talents of the West together for the local community to enjoy and benefit from as a cultural event. The idea of professional fine artists joining forces to exhibit together outside of galleries is unusual. But Einerssen and friends have done just that for more than 20 years in prominent public spaces in Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Vancouver, New York and Mexico. Their unique philosophy of taking fine art to the public, instead of waiting for the public to come to the art, has inspired people of all ages to gain an appreciation for all kinds of fine art forms, and has spawned hundreds of new fans over the years.

Einerssen and other organizers including the painter Brent Heighton and sculptor Vance Theoret, are now taking the public art experience to the next level, by touring across cities in a way that can be compared to musical artists. Additional cities are being planned for the tour, to follow the inaugural event in Saskatoon. “Artists on Tour brings together well-known, established artists from three provinces into a major public exhibit space in Saskatoon,” says Einerssen. The public will have a chance to meet and mingle with internationally-recognized artists like Valerie Hinz, Mike Svob, Angela Morgan, Denyse Klette and Peter Shostak, who are just two examples of the high calibre of artists participating. “For people who are new to art, as well as art enthusiasts and collectors, this is an amazing opportunity to access the finest creative talents and hidden treasures from their home province as well Alberta and British Columbia.” “The biggest thrill for me is that we are opening Artists on Tour in Saskatoon – a special place in my heart and the very region that inspired me to become an artist in the first place.”

Langham Care Home big part of community By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

ngoing community support in the form of fundraising and volunteerism goes a long way toward helping the Langham Senior Citizens Home provide a good quality of life for elderly residents. “The community of Langham and district has been phenomenal over the years in terms of the support it’s given to the seniors’ home here,” said Conrad Jantzen, administrator of the care home in Langham. “It’s because of that support that we’re able to make ongoing improvements to the building and meet the everyday needs of the residents.” Jantzen said a recent fundraising raffle raised $3,800, well ahead of the campaign’s goal of $2,000, to purchase a newer, larger television screen for residents, as well as an electronic gaming system that can be used in the home’s recreation and exercise activities. “We are always raising funds to provide things for residents,” said Jantzen. “The goal is to improve the quality of life for residents, many of whom have very limited mobility. It’s important to have things that stimulate people and keep their bodies and minds as active as possible.” Jantzen said the building recently had new shingles installed on its roof, thanks to fundraising efforts and volunteers. “It’s nice to have a fresher-looking building,” he said. “But more importantly, we’re very fortunate we didn’t have any leaks. We have to do this type of preventive maintenance so we don’t have problems down the road.” Fundraising is also responsible for the recent purchase of an emergency generator as well as special inflatable mattresses designed to prevent bedridden residents from suffering excruciating bedsores. Future fundraising projects will go toward purchases of a new range hood for the home’s kitchen.

“In order to have a fan that will cover the full stove, we will have to upgrade our building’s makeup air unit,” said Jantzen. “So it’s not just a simple matter of adding a hood fan. What we thought would be a $5,000 project is turning into a $50,000 project. We didn’t see that coming, but it’s something we need for the benefit of the home, and it’s a positive for the residents. Proper ventilation helps people with breathing problems, and it keeps the humidity in the building down, which will help prolong the life of the structure.” Jantzen said the town council and administration also acted very quickly when issues were brought to their attention. “We have brand new sidewalks around our facility this year,” said Jantzen. “We took

that to the town council, and they reviewed the request. I couldn’t believe how fast those new sidewalks were installed for one block on each side of our building. It was phenomenal, because it was just a matter of weeks until it was done. This was very important because it was a safety issue. The sidewalks were in pretty bad shape, and it was hard to navigate a wheelchair down the sidewalk or for residents to go for walks. They were forced to use the street, which wasn’t safe.” Jantzen said while many care homes in the area are directly or indirectly sponsored by churches, the Langham care home is privately owned. “But the owner operates this home like a charity,” said Jantzen. “We also do get a lot of support indirectly from the churches and individual vol-

crying. It was a multiple of things, so it was pretty cool.” Doerksen also mentioned that they had a waiting list of about 25 – 30 drivers with combines who wanted to be there but didn’t get in. “I just want to say, thank you for your support, thank you for showing interest, bringing your machines or even wanting to. And in the future we’ll want to try this again, and make it even bigger and better. The sound of combines is “Harvest for Kids, the Sound of Hope.”

some to see the community spirit here with all these farmers coming together. We have every swath filled so that’s 249 out there and we’re excited to see what’s gonna happen.” Some combines displayed flags from their country. While there were many local drivers, some came from as far away as Germany and California.

STUNNING SIGHT The sight of 249 combines approaching from opposite directions and coming to a stop in the centre of the field was exceptional. A vintage Cockshutt was the last to pull in. Jody Lamp, on hand to promote a documentary film which will include footage of this event, said it well: “It’s a pretty awestriking moment when you see all these combines.” Harvest for Kids Saskatchewan now holds the new world record for the most combines simultaneously harvesting a single field. A group in Ireland most recently held the record with 208 combines, but will have to give it up after only two months. To beat the record, H4K Saskatchewan needed only 209 combines, but with 249, the world record will now

be more difficult to beat. Following the harvest, drivers gathered on stage for a photo-op while dignitaries Kelly Block, MP for Saskatoon-Rosetown-Biggar, and Nancy Heppner, Saskatchewan Minister of Environment expressed congratulations for this achievement. Chad Doerksen and his wife adopted a child from Ethiopia a couple of years ago. Doerksen found the experience “soul disturbing” as locals patted the child on the head and said she had “won the lottery.” His desire to help children grew out of that experience. Though his offer of land didn’t work out, the best part of this day for him was “I got to spend it with my family. They sacrificed a lot during the two years I invested in this.” He had two combines there being driven by his Dad, without whom he wouldn’t be farming, and a valued employee. “This way I could sit down with my daughter and son and my beautiful wife and just be able to take it in and just get emotionally drained as everything got finished. I can tell you I was teary eyed, I was

Supper in the field

a harvest tradition

By HILARY KLASSEN

hilaryklassen@gmail.com

T

he tailgate of a pickup won’t do as a makeshift table for this gathering. A larger table is found and placed over the stubble in the field. A tablecloth is spread and some battery operated candles added. No sense risking torching the field by using real candles. Food arrives, along with lawn chairs and about 15 people. The sound of the combine fades as it comes to a stop nearby. It’s time for supper in the field. When the dust settles, plates are filled and those gathered bask in

the glow of the setting sun. The field belongs to Lois and Gaylord Mireau and is part of their farm near Langham. It’s not just any field: the harvest from this particular field will be donated to the Canadian Foodgrains Banks (CFGB) to help alleviate world hunger. The Mieraus had been donating a portion of harvest income to CFGB for years. But a couple of years ago, they decided to take things a step further by designating a specific field for CFGB and donating the harvest from it. Lois has invited the staff from the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) Centre where she works for this supper in the field. MCC is one of fifteen partners working with CFGB throughout the world.

For some of those around the table the supper was nostalgic, bringing back memories of harvest from childhood. For others it was a novel experience. The novelty aspect is one reason Lois likes to host this kind of supper. A couple of weeks ago the Mieraus hosted a supper in the field for friends visiting from Vancouver. “They had never experienced something like this. They had a great time and were so thrilled,” said Lois. And what Lois found really interesting was, “these people from BC had no clue what a combine even does or what part of the wheat stalk you’re harvesting here. If you’re not familiar with it you just don’t know. What’s so ordinary for us is something really

special for someone who doesn’t get a chance to do that.” Another reason is to celebrate the harvest that will be shared with those experiencing hunger elsewhere on the planet. Lois found it special that a blessing was said over this harvest and its impact on other tables, where it’s going and what it’s going to be doing. The Mireaus harvest season was more spread out this year, which made things more amenable to doing this supper. “Sometimes the harvest is late and we’re in a big panic, and we don’t have time,” says Lois. The night was extraordinary because, “It was such a gorgeous evening, just perfect, and just seeing that it brought back memories for oth-

Langham family and friends donate proceeds from crop to Canadian Foodgrains Bank

er people,” Lois said. “Also just being able to connect, the fact that we grow food for people and this is what it looks like.” After supper Gaylord, who grew up on this farm, offered combine rides. That was fun for the kids present but also the adults most of whom hadn’t been in a combine for awhile. Combines have changed! A simple request by Dave Pauls, Donor Development Coordinator for MCC Saskatchewan to take photos when the CFGB field was being harvested, led to this expanded invitation from Lois & Gaylord. It was a great way to celebrate a shared harvest together. “We believe that the work CFGB is doing is what’s really needed for addressing hunger in the world and we have a lot of respect for their work,” says Lois. “We want to share in that work and share out of our abundance because we have way more than what we need.”

Blades guilty of throwing gas on bad fire Losing three straight games is not uncommon in a long hockey season, but when the losses come from a veteran-laden team making the same mistakes over and over…well that brings about questions! That is especially true of this year’s edition of the Saskatoon Blades…a team that is penciled in to host the MasterCard Memorial Cup, meaning the microscope is firmly trained on them! The three losses were not pretty…a 5-3 setback to visiting Red Deer last Wednesday following a strong opening period; an embarrassing 10-1 pasting at the hands of Swift Current before a disappointed and discouraged crowd at Credit Union Centre on Friday, followed by a 4-1 loss in Edmonton on Saturday. The issues are surprisingly redundant…taking too many penalties, being beaten head-tohead on special teams, lack of cohesive team play and suspect goaltending. In the three games, besides being out-scored 19-5, the Bridge City Bunch were short-handed 18 times and surrendered 10 power play goals while only scoring twice on 20 man-power advantages. The Blades were outscored 9-3 while playing at evenstrength…yet out-shot the three opponents by a combined 110-103. Saskatoon’s save percentage was an abysmal .816 while opposition goalies were a sterling .955! This from a team with 16 W.H.L. veterans, including 13 players aged 19 or 20. Of the 16

veterans, eight players have been through the last two playoff seasons with the Blades, ending with year-ending four-game sweeps! One of those eight, defenceman Dalton Thrower, was not in the line-up on the weekend. He was a healthy scratch for both, apparently incurring a team suspension for off-ice issues. As of Monday afternoon, Thrower was still a member of the Blades, but a 2-5-0 record and a penchant for making the same mistakes could lead to changes being made by the time you read this! BLADES PLAYER-OF-THEWEEK – On a difficult week, the best Blade was new captain Brenden Walker. He assisted on two of the five Saskatoon goals

and three assists. ***** UPCOMING GAMES – This weekend could be critical for the Bridge City Bunch to right the ship as they head off on their first multi-game, multi-day road trip. The Blades leave Thursday for games Friday in Cranbrook, B.C. against the Kootenay Ice, Saturday against the Hurricanes in Lethbridge and winding up Sunday night in Medicine Hat against the Tigers. Saskatoon returns home Wednesday to host the Tri-City Americans at Credit Union Centre. In all three instances, the broadcast is on CKBL-FM (92-9, THE BULL) with a half-hour of pre-game talk before play-by-play.

Delisle Rebels sew up first place By HILARY KLASSEN

hilaryklassen@gmail.com

I

n spite of trouncing the Meadow Lake Spartans 49 – 7, Delisle Rebels coach Ken Byers said there’s no such thing as an easy win and they still have to improve. “Its probably our best offensive performance of the season, but we still need to clean some things up,” he said of the October 5 matchup in Delisle. The convincing win puts them in a 5 and 0 position in the 9-man high school football league. By half time, Cole McKenzie had already delivered three of his four touchdowns for the Rebels while the Spartans had yet to impact the score board. Byers noted that “McKenzie’s personal and self-discipline has really improved since the start of the season, on and off the football field and I think that goes hand in hand with a better performance.” Delisle quarterback Kyle Richardson also had a great game. “He threw the ball really well and he called a good

game too, because as a quarterback you have to manage your offense to make sure everybody’s doing what they’re supposed to, and make adjustments,” said Byers. “He did a good job of making adjustments which was better than the last couple of weeks.” Playing really well on defense was Logan Atchison who is just coming back to the game of football. “He played in Grade 9, then didn’t play in Grade 10,” Byers explained. “Everyone in his family, all his cousins were big football players and he’s come back after two years off and he’s had a really good season.” The Rebels are now well positioned to head into the playoffs, but Byers said they’re not taking anything for granted. “The game we gave today isn’t gonna win on November 10 in the provincial final,” he said, noting they need to make improvements in several areas. “We still have too many penalties, our special teams weren’t performing, we had

DETERMINATION

Delisle Rebels running back Jeff Shirley shows steely-eyed determination as he fends off a tackler with a straight-arm maneuver during a game against the Meadow Lake Spartans on Friday, October 5. HILARY KLASSEN | CLARK’S CROSSING GAZETTE some issues in offense and defense that we need to work on,” he explained. The coach indicated they watch a lot of game film to guide their improvement strategies and help them clean up their game. There was a decent showing of supportive fans in the

stands on a day that never really warmed up enough to get comfy. By late afternoon the shadows were long and some watchers chose to hunker down in their vehicles to view the game. A half dozen or more enthusiastic Meadow Lake fans made it to the game and made good use of

their cow bells and orange toques. The Spartans started to show more hustle in the latter part of the game. Byers’ approach to coaching goes beyond what you see on the score board. “Sports is so focused on that end score, but we’re in a situation where that’s not our

end goal,” he said. “We would like to have a good game. We would like to have a game that can win in the provincial final.” This game officially places the Rebels first in the league. Their last regular season game is at home this Friday against Kindersley.

Grey Cup? Sign the Riders up! If that was a Grey Cup preview, sign the Saskatchewan Roughriders up. On Thanksgiving Monday afternoon the Roughriders blasted the Toronto Argonauts 36-10 at Rogers Centre for their third-straight victory and a share of second-place in the CFL West at 8-6. Things went the Riders’ way right from the opening kickoff when Brandon West returned it 84 yards. The Riders got a field goal on the drive and never trailed the rest of the way. CFL observers may scoff at the notion of the game being a Grey Cup preview, but it’s a distinct possibility. The 100th Grey Cup game will be played November 25 at Rogers Centre and both the Riders and Argos are right in the thick of it. Rider coach Corey Chamblin was the first to point that Monday’s encounter might be a sneak peek of the CFL’s championship match. “It was a total team effort,” Chamblin revealed. “We said

RIDER INSIDER ROD PEDERSEN

Voice of the Riders Roughriders Radio Network

we’d approach it like a championship game with the last two wins over Calgary, BC and now here. It was a championship-type game and we played like it and finished.” Did they ever. The Riders never turned the ball over and tailback Kory Sheets shattered the 1000-yard mark for the season on a 48-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. Right around that time pivot Darian Durant launched a 78-yard touchdown bomb to Weston Dressler. They were rockin’ and rollin’. Of course these two teams will meet again before the season is over, in Regina, and To-

ronto will be a much different team by then. They were missing their top quarterback and top rusher on Monday so Chamblin wasn’t getting too cocky. “There’s still room for improvement,” Chamblin reasoned. “Jarious (Jackson) is a good quarterback but that isn’t the real Toronto offence. The next time we face them they’ll have Ricky Ray and Chad Kackert.” With four games left the Riders are looking ahead rather than behind but it’s prudent to point out the missed opportunities which would have vastly improved their stand-

ing. Two blown games against Calgary and a gaffe in Montreal in Week 12 would have the Riders sitting pretty at this point. They are tied with Calgary but have lost the season series which have put them behind the 8-ball in terms of hosting a playoff game. Those snafus could add up to a collective million dollar mistake since finishing first or second and hosting a playoff game means seven figures into the bank account. Regardless, a playoff berth would represent a massive accomplishment by the first-year coach Chamblin who took over a demoralized 5-13 team. And, let’s not forget, second-place is still there for the taking. The way the Riders are playing now, anything is a possibility. With a win this Saturday at Edmonton against the 6-8 Eskimos, the Riders can truly start making playoff plans. Maybe they could even start dreaming about another trip to Toronto.

BLADES GOING PINK FOR BREAST CANCER The Saskatoon Blades are doing their part to fight Breast Cancer. On October 20th during their game against the Everett Silvertips, the Blades will be debuting a special-edition jersey to raise awareness about all types of cancer, including breast cancer. The jersey features a unique Saskatoon Blades breast cancer ribbon as its main logo. The bottom of the jersey will also include a list of names as a special tribute from the players. The names are of Blades season ticket holders’ family members and

friends who have lost their battle with cancer. The special jerseys will be worn to represent the Blades fight against cancer during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To further that point, the gameworn jerseys will be auctioned off to fans during the game on October 20th. Proceeds from the auction will go to the C95 radio marathon. Along with the jerseys, the Blades are wearing a special pink ribbon sticker on the back of their helmets all month to show their support for the fight against cancer.

Seniors housing project another step closer to reality By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

A

n innovative 36-unit seniors’ apartment complex in Martensville is one step closer to reality following a meeting last week of potential shareholders in the project. Terri Hetterly, President of the Martensville Housing Development Committee, said while they are still looking for shareholders to participate in the project, they are “about halfway” to their goal. “We have about 18 shareholders at this point who are prepared to put in money for their unit,” she explained in an interview October 3. “That’s extremely good news for us, because it shows there is a high level of support for this type of project in Martensville.” The project is being handled by Bridge Road Developments, a Manitoba-based company with 20 similar projects currently under construction or in operation in a number of Manitoba and Saskatchewan communities. The company first unveiled the project at a public meeting

June 20 in Martensville, and about 15 shareholders put up $1,000 each at that time to secure a suite in the building. A 2-acre parcel of land for the building is being donated by Charlotte and Edmund Ens, with another 5 acres available for purchase by the committee. The land is on the east side of Range Road 3053 (also known as 10th Avenue) and south of Township Road 384 (also known as Main Street). The land is part of the future growth concept plan for Martensville. Affinity Credit Union in Martensville is working to help facilitate financing for the project. Under the Bridge Road Developments model, the buildings are designed to accommodate the needs of the tenants, investors and shareholders, the majority of whom are resident in the community where it is built. Bridge Road Developments is also a shareholder in the building in addition to being construction and development manager. Tenants who are looking to become part of the project are required to put down an initial deposit of $1,000 to secure the apartment

The 36-unit seniors apartment complex in Martensville is on track to begin construction next spring.

of their choice. Once the plans are in place, tenants are required to put up an additional interestbearing investment of $54,000 and sign a tenancy agreement when construction begins. Once the building is completed, tenants will have a single monthly payment that includes heat, electricity, water, taxes, rent and maintenance. Television and telephone are separate payments, as is any extra insurance for personal property of the tenant.

Hetterly said the pieces are falling into place for the project, and the “best case scenario” is for construction on the new building to begin next spring. “We are in the process of getting the land transferred from the landowners to us, as a committee,” she said. “And that will happen as soon as we have the papers finalized with the lawyer and our registration as a non-profit corporation is finalized as well.” She said the land must

be surveyed and the property still needs to be annexed by the City of Martensville. “At this point, the land is still owned by the landowner and is still within the RM of Corman Park,” she confirmed. “But they’re getting really close to having it handed over to us.” Hetterly said potential shareholders continue to contact the Martensville Housing Development Committee to inquire about the project, and the list of shareholders is continu-

ally growing. “We’re very excited about the way things are progressing,” she said. “Everything is on track and we’re happy with how people are gradually hearing about the project and coming forward.” People interested in further details of this and similar projects can log on to www.bridgeroad.ca . For information on securing an apartment, contact Terri Hetterly at 249-1917 or t.hetterly@sasktel.net .

List of franchises grows for Martensville’s new commercial area Little Ceasar’s Pizza to join Dairy Queen and Second Cup in new Sunset Ridge commercial district Residents and visitors of Western Canada’s fastest growing city will soon have another option for affordable dining. By January 2013 a Little Caesers Pizza franchise will join Dairy Queen and Second Cup at North Prairie Developments’ Sunset Ridge, an integrated sixacre highway and service commercial site located at the south end of Martensville, fronting the Centennial Drive South service road. Commercial development in Martensville is progressing rapidly. In July, North Prairie founder John Williams and the City of Martensville announced a major national phar-

macy chain will join Tim Horton’s in the 20-acre Black Iron Crossing, located on Centennial Drive South. More announcements for both developments are expected soon. “We’re currently in negotiations with a number of entities including other national fast food chains, a large hotel chain, a large format food store and big box retailer, a gas bar/ convenience store/car wash and other major retailers,” says Williams, who has been investing in Martensville for 15 years. “The investment in retail development in Martensville is over $75 million.” Lana Makari, along with her husband Ben, own four other Little Caesers Pizza locations in Saskatoon and Prince Albert. Makari says setting up a fifth Little Caesers location in Martensville was an easy decision. “I think Martensville is

going to be the next Airdrie – the City has so much going for it and the growth potential is huge – it’s a great community and we want to be a part of it,” says Makari. Little Caesers is the largest carry-out pizza chain in the world and an internationally known brand. The franchise started in Detroit and more than 50 years later, the franchise’s commitment to quality and value has resulted in thousands of locations around the world.

PRIME LOCATION Makari says the process of acquiring land for their new location went smoothly and the benefits of opening a new location Martensville far outweighed any other location options they were considering. “Rather than rent, we own the land, there’s lots of parking, and we’re able to make de-

cisions on what’s best for our business ourselves – as a business owner that’s really rewarding.” That bodes well for Martensville. Gordon Rutten, Mayor of the City of Martensville says residents are asking for more business and retail development, and the Sunset Ridge and Black Iron Crossing developments are enabling that to happen. “We’re pleased with both the residential development through North Prairie’s 40 acre MacCormack Ranch, and commercial development progress made to date by North Prairie and its commercial real estate partner, ICR.” Dillon Shewchuk, City of Martensville Economic Development Manager says businesses are noticing Martensville and the opportunity that exists in the City of almost 8,000 residents. “Our on-going residential growth and the visibility

and traffic quality of our commercial sites, leaves us with no doubt that retailers will be successful here.” While Williams says commercial development plans take time, his staff, and his company’s working relationship with the City of Martensville and his commercial real estate partner, ICR, is helping things move along quickly. “Both our land division manager and project manager on these developments, Phil Ratzlaf, and ICR, have done an amazing job keeping these projects on track and marketing them,” says Williams. “We share the same vision as the City in terms of residential and commercial development, and our history here has enabled us to create a terrific working relationship.” Construction on Little Caesers Pizza will begin later this fall.

Fall Supper Fridays

SUNSET RIDGE The Sunset Ridge Commercial site was acquired and developed as part of a larger 70-acre residential subdivision development that contains 239-single family lots and 3-acres of multifamily housing. The major attraction of this site is its direct visual exposure to Highway 12 with the second highest traffic counts in the province. The zoning provides for a broad range of commercial development including retail, office and service commercial uses. North Prairie Developments designed the development to include a mixed use of six 1-acre commercial lots along the front and a 6-acre residential multi-family development to the rear with a shared common entry that will service both. These uses provide strong integrated mutual support.

Delisle Flag Football Team competes at National Level After an excellent season of play, the U-18 Delisle Rebels Flag Football Team travelled to Regina to

compete in a round robin tournament where they were crowned Provincial gold medalists! Claiming this title meant being awarded a trip to Oakville, Ontario to compete at the National level for four days. The boys represented our community and our province very well by upsetting Nova Scotia, the team that won nationals last year, and keeping up with some very skilled teams as well. A loss in the bronze medal match denied them of any hardware, but they played with skill, determination, heart, and dignity. The team wishes to acknowledge some local sponsors in helping with additional expenses: (tape, glove grip, 8th man plane ticket, gatorade, jerseys, etc.) Ward’s Red Angus, Orchard Seeds , Agrium Potash Mine, Delisle Co-op, Robin’s Nest, Pipp’s Place , Glen and Eleanor Yellowlees, Olson Gravel, Stoll’s Seed Barn.

WARMAN

Candidates for Warman City Council outline their platforms Richard Beck

My first elected term is in the books! These have been exciting times! Three years ago, our community faced a host of monumental issues. Consider; development of the Warman Sport and Cultural Village, (officially renamed, “The Legends Centre”) was at a standstill; and just revived with the agreement between Town Council and the Prairie Spirit School Division. Congestion in our schools continued to build without our Saskatchewan Provincial Government committing to fund a new facility. Highway 305 repairs did not have commitment to move forward and was under study. Our Industrial Development Lots were not selling; amidst, huge residential growth within our community. Each of these issues was important to guide correctly as our community growth and futures were at stake. Fast-forward three years. Our Legends Centre has doors open,with leasable spaces opening within the building! Warman Minor Hockey has already hosted the Saskatoon Blades and Prince Albert Raiders in a pre-season hockey game. Our official grand opening is set to occur on October 27, 2012 as a part of our City Celebration Event! Our council lobbied our Saskatchewan Provincial Government for funding support towards our Middle Years School; our project has been approved and construction started for opening in the fall of 2013! Highway 305 is waiting for final approval on a re-alignment initiative. Our Industrial Lots are sold out! We have also seen an influx of new businesses and commercial development! Success has been achieved in these areas! I have been committed to these projects and other important infrastructure developments during my tenure. I have supported the lagoon expansion, the Legends Golf Course agreement, the new water service supply line, and the water retention expansion project. I have not lost sight of continuing the important investment into infrastructure and infrastructure upgrades to support future growth. In my second term, I commit to continuing the investment into infrastructure. Our policing, fire and protection services,recreation and library are all important services and continue to be my highest priority. One important project that ranks the highest of my priority in the

upcoming term is the re-location of our Warman Wheatland Library. I seek to rejuvenate our library services, programming and location to better reflect the opportunity of Life Long Learning programs, and incorporate technology integration at the new Middle Years School. I ask for your support for re-election to Warman Council on October 24, 2012!

Troy Chaskavich I am grateful for the opportunity to be running in the civic election for the upcoming City of Warman 2012 election and would look forward to serving the community of Warman over the next four years. My wife Karen and I have been married for twenty years, and we have two sons Jeremy (16), and Justin (14) who both attend WHS. We have lived in the community of Warman since 2000. Originally, I am from Broadview, SK. I work for the Correctional Service of Canada at the Regional Psychiatric Centre in Saskatoon as a Correctional Manager. I have been with the service for the past 16 years. It is very important for the new City of Warman to have a strong council to make sure that the needs of the residents are met. I believe that I will be a strong team member to make this happen. Sense of pride comes to mind when I think how Warman has grown over the last 12 years that I have lived here. I don’t have an election platform but believe in the importance of honesty, integrity and accountability. Areas I feel strongly about include that there is adequate fire and protective services to meet the needs of the community. City infrastructure is another important area to ensure Warman is able to keep up with the demand of the growing population. In addition with having 2 teenage sons of my own, I see the importance of having youth activities available to keep kids active and safe. As a potential member of the City Council of Warman I will work to address resident concerns and would look forward to working with the other council members towards the common goal of continuing to keep Warman a City to be proud of.

Trevor Zane Dmytryshyn Peterson

I have lived in Warman since 1978 with my wife Kimberley. Together we raised 3 daughters here; 2 of them still reside in Warman along with their families. I am employed as a Federal Civil Servant. I previously served 6 years on council from 1982-1988. At that time I campaigned for the following: To establish a library, RCMP detachment, back-lane maintenance, noise by-law and a golf course. We as a council brought these into effect. Warman has now become a city, and I will work to ensure that we will be able to maintain the quality of life that we enjoy. My concerns at this time are: That we keep taxes as low as possible Along with our city’s growth that the infrastructure keeps up with that growth Also that we have a safe community in which to reside Another concern which residents have raised to me is the issue of the drainage of water On October 24, 2012 I hope you will elect me as your Councillor for the City of Warman. My number should you wish to reach me is 306 2275397. Thank you.

Dale Lung I have let my name stand for election to the City council of Warman. Warman is becoming a city and a vibrant place to live.

This is the message I would like to convey when elected to your council. With my past experience on a town council, I believe that I am a good choice for this position.

I am focused on keeping the following items a priority this term: sustainable growth with continued excellent service for manageable cost; looking into commuter bus service to Saskatoon; commitment to business and economic development; and finally, to make sure our city status does not bring negative consequences to our residents. A vote for Kendall is a vote for positive growth while holding on to the way of life we have come to enjoy.

Kevin Tooley I was born and raised in Prince Albert. I attended the University of Saskatchewan and graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Kinesiology) and a Bachelor of Commerce; in addition I have completed a Post Graduate Certificate Program in Real Property Valuation from the University of British Columbia. I work with the City of Saskatoon in the Assessment Branch, in addition to working in the Property Assessment and Valuation field I have past experiences working in Recreation and Leisure, Health Care, Labour Relations, and Financial Services. I have lived in Warman since 2004 with my wife Danielle, a Special Education Teacher with Saskatoon Public Schools, as well as our daughters Alena and Isabelle. When our family first moved to Warman we were a young family enticed by the short commute to Saskatoon and the affordability of housing, we have chosen to stay in Warman because we find it a great place to raise our family. My interest in civic government can be linked to my childhood when my grandfather was a longstanding City Councillor in Prince Albert. As we become the City of Warman I understand the importance of City Councillors’ who are dedicated and committed to leading Warman’s growth and prosperity in a sustainable and responsible way. I believe I have a gained knowledge and understanding from my diverse personal and professional experiences which I can draw upon as a representative on City Council. If elected, my agenda as a city Councillor includes: working on solutions for traffic congestion, exploring the feasibility of a community swimming pool, encouraging further investment in services and amenities, engaging the Provincial Government regarding the safety of Highway 11, and keeping Warman family friendly and affordable. Anyone interested is welcome to join me on Facebook at Elect Kevin Tooley for Warman City Council.

ing us 20-0 halfway through the second quarter last Friday, and then we scored on our last series of the first half. We were still down 34-20 with 3 and a half minutes left in the game, and we scored a touchdown, and made the short kick, and then scored again with 13 seconds left in the game.

“And then Owen Hubbard kicked a convert to put it through for us to win the game by a single point, so give him credit for having blood in his veins when it was ice-cold. He nailed that kick in a clutch situation. It was their best game of the season,” he concluded.

The Town of Warman requires a Heavy Equipment Operator who will be responsible for the operation of graders and other municipal equipment including skid steer loader, backhoe and street sweeper in a safe and appropriate manner. This employee will also be responsible for the maintenance and monitoring of municipal equipment as well as the scheduling of repairs as necessary. The Equipment Operator must deal with residents and members of the public in a courteous and respectful manner. This includes receiving complaints about schedules and levels and quality of service. Warman is one of the fastest growing communities and on October 24th will become Saskatchewan’s 16th City. We offer competitive wages, an excellent group benefits package and municipal pension. Qualified applicants should forward resumes including references by mail, fax or email to:

he Hague Panthers gave the Hanley Sabers a run for their money last Thursday. Despite coming out on the short end of a 61-28 score, Panthers coach Clay Kirby had nothing but good things to say about his team’s effort. “I’m pumped,” said Kirby after the game. “That’s the closest game Hanley’s had to face all year, and they’re a team that’s got a great chance of winning the provincial 6-man football championship. They’ve got great coaches, and they’re a talented team, so the fact that we stayed with them spoke volumes for our guys’ efforts.” The Panthers found themselves down two touchdowns early in the first quarter, but Hague got on the board when quarterback Luke Guenter picked up the first of two touchdowns for the home team. Hanley added two more touchdowns before Hague’s Justin Fehr hauled in a dramatic pass and ran 60 yards downfield for a major. The score at the half was Hanley 40 - Hague 22. Hanley scored two touchdowns in the third and one in the fourth quarter, while Hague’s Luke Guenter collected his second touchdown in the third quarter. The big story for the Panthers, though, was the defense. Despite being on the field most of the game, they were able to shut down the Sabers’ formidable run game for the most part. Kirby said he was pleased with the Panthers’ efforts, particularly in the second half. “They didn’t quit,” he said. “They kept fighting and I’m very pleased with today’s efforts.” Kirby singled out Luke Guenter, Mark Loewen, Justin Fehr, Kendal Penner and Adam Friesen as the workhorses who provided leadership on and off the field. “I appreciate the Grade 12 guys who really help motivate the younger guys by example,” he said.

CENTRAL BUTTE GAME Kirby said the team carried a lot of momentum over from the game in Central Butte the previous week, where the Panthers came from behind to win by a score of 35-34 on a last-second convert kick. “It was a barn-burner,” said Kirby. “They were beat-

successful contractor’s plans, they may also decide to crush all the aggregates they will need for paving this winter as well.” While many people were hoping construction of the new highway would start in the 2012 season, there were unavoidable delays, noted Churko. The construction project is complex, he said, pointing out that virtually all of the new highway is being built from scratch, rather than rebuilding an existing road. “It does take time when you’re building a highway through an area where there was no road before,” he said. “A lot of time has to be spent with landowners along the line, and all the design details have to be worked out to ensure that it works best for everyone and mitigates the effect on the current landowners.” He said it’s not unusual for a project of this magnitude to take between 4 or 5 years from conception to completion. “We had hoped to be going sooner, but it’s not really surprising that the timing is later than what some were hoping for,” he said. “However, right now we’re in the final stages of discussions with landowners, and we’re at a point where the tenders can be issued and construction will start as soon as possible after that.” Churko said the final cost of the project won’t be made public until after the tender process closes. He said the new highway will be built to “primary weight standards” with 3.7 meterwide driving lanes and 2 meter-wide shoulders for its entire length. “When you get closer to the main highways, the shoulder width will be increased to 3 meters and there will be turning lanes added as safety features,” he said. “The intersections with both Highways 11 and 12 will be ‘at-grade’ intersections, which means they will not have overpasses.” However, he noted, the highway footprint of “protected land” at the intersections will be 800 meters in diameter, which would be the maximum needed to accommodate any future overpass. The new route for Highway 305 will intersect with Highway 11 north of Warman and will head west, with a gradual curve until it meets up with the existing intersection at Highway 12. The current Highway 305, which was originally constructed in the 1930s, will

The new Highway 305 will run along the northern boundary of the new City of Warman and intersect with Centennial Boulevard (also known as Neuhorst Road), which will be the site of a large big box retail development. The developers were awaiting word on the new highway before making more major announcements.

CLARK’S CROSSING GAZETTE • THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2012

Bethany College students hit the road to do service work From September 19-27, First and Second Year Bethany College students went “on the road” to engage in various Service Learning Modules. Sixty First Year students travelled to Calgary, Kelowna, Regina and Saskatoon. In Calgary, thirty students served at The Mustard Seed, Calgary Drop In, Calgary Food Bank, Jesus Loves You Society, Salvation Army and Next Step Ministries. The Calgary leaders were Randi Rempel, Associate Dean of Women; Jelisa Riediger, Residence Director; and Nick Poetker, alumnus. The Kelowna team worked at the Kelowna Gospel Mission under the leadership of Dave Carey, Associate Dean of Men. The males of that team lived in the shelter for the week and the entire team helped out during the day. The Regina team worked with Healing Hearts Ministry under the leadership of Alvin Thielmann, Athletics Director. They experienced various church, para-church and community organizations. The

Saskatoon team worked through MCC Saskatchewan’s Chalo program, learning about issues that affect immigrants and refugees; their team leader was Erick Penner, Residence Director. The purpose of the First Year module is for students to have a strong small group experience early in the school year and become more aware of issues around poverty, homelessness and new Canadians. Thirty Second Year students visited three different Cree communities in Saskatchewan. Luke Heidebrecht, Associate Director of Missions, led a team to the Bigstone community in Air Ronge. They were involved in various activities to support the ministry of the Angus Ross family - Angus is a church leader in Bigstone. These activities included running kids clubs, clearing bush, overnighting at a remote cabin, visiting elders and various miscellaneous opportunities. Randy Klassen, Instructor in Biblical and Theological Studies, led a team to the

Beardy’s & Okemasis First Nation. They built a tipi, participated in an elder’s panel, were involved in a local radio broadcast, helped in elementary classrooms and much more. Jerry Letkeman, Service Learning Director, led a team to Hall Lake where they played blind volleyball, street hockey, badminton and helped out in elementary classrooms. Both the Beardy’s and Hall Lakes teams coincided their visits with an annual Culture Camp that the respective schools hold in September. These camps allowed our students to snare rabbits and catch fish; eat moose meat, bannock and duck soup; create beaded bracelets, hear stories and have lots of fun with children, youth, adults and elders. The purpose of the Second Year module is for students to live and relate in a Cree community so they can make new friends and gain greater understanding of the strength of our First Nations communities and an awareness of the issues they

face. Bethany College teams have been intentionally connecting with Cree communities for over a decade and we are delighted with the strong relationships we enjoy due to the continuity of our team leaders. When asked about this experience and its impact, Randy Klassen commented: “Each year the Beardy’s community has been wonderfully welcoming to our Bethany team. They share with us their stories, their humour, their food and their friendship. This year, as we listened to the elders and their stories of the residential schools, we learned about hardship and abuse, resilience and forgiveness. We see their reverence for the Creator, we pray the Lord’s Prayer with them, and we share the love of Jesus. It’s an experience of service learning that is already leaving a legacy in the Beardy’s community, even as it is reshaping our students.” For more information and team pictures visit www.bethany.sk.ca.

Redberry Biosphere builds global partnerships Submitted by SUSANNE ABE

Redberry Lake Biosphere Reserve

In the following two years representatives from these four Biosphere Reserves visited each other and exchanged best practices that had been established in their Biosphere Reserves. An agreement was signed in 2007 with the goal to transfer and share knowledge in tourism, agriculture, landscape management and education for sustainable development. “We are very proud to have such a vital partnership that goes beyond being colleagues – we found friends here and that is very important to us”, says Abe. He and his colleague Reinhard Braun, responsible for Geographic Information System (GIS) at the Rhoen Biosphere Reserve/Thuringia also had the chance to visit Saskatchewan’s north. Tourism Saskatchewan invited the two delegates as well as representatives from Redberry Lake Biosphere Reserve to “Forest House”, a wilderness lodge in the Boreal forest near Missinipe. This lodge is constructed and operates to have a minimal impact of the delicate ecosystem. The owners use solar collectors to generate power, installed a self-composting septic system and have a self-sustaining garden. “This is a very good example of the sustainable co-existence of people and nature”, says Andrew Hawrysh, Chair of Redberry Lake Biosphere Reserve, “Although this region is not a Biosphere Reserve, it demonstrates exactly what a Biosphere Reserve is all about: Living and working in a way that we can offer future generations the same ecological goods and services we were offered.” The two German delegates left Redberry Lake and Saskatchewan on September 28.

R

edberry Lake Biosphere Reserve hosted two delegates from its partner Biosphere Reserve Rhoen from Germany on September 23 to 28. Together with two other Canadian Biosphere Reserves Georgian Bay (Ontario) and Charlevoix (Quebec) the four partners developed a joint brochure “Partners in the World Network” which was presented to other Canadian Biosphere Reserves at the School of Environment and Sustainability (SENS), U of S, and also presented to the public on September 25 at the Research and Education Centre at Redberry Lake. This brochure is the first joint project of the partnering Biosphere Reserves introducing each of the four sites, their projects and experiences. Written in three languages (English, French and German) the brochure aims to promote tourism to these sites and also serves as an example of an active partnership in a World Network. The collaboration between the Canadian Biosphere Reserves Charlevoix, Georgian Bay and Redberry and the German Rhoen dates back to a meeting in 2005 where the regional network of Biosphere Reserves for Europe and North America (EuroMAB) encouraged its members to initiate partnerships. “There are almost 600 sites in this worldwide network of Biosphere Reserves but networks can only thrive if the people involved get to know each other, exchange ideas and implement joint projects”, explains Karl-Friedrich Abe, Head of Administration of the Rhoen Biosphere Reserve/Thuringia.

The Warman train monument was erected in 2006 for the town’s centennial. Above left, the newly-built Legends Golf Club.

Written by LEONARD DOELL and SHARON MARTENS Warman is officially becoming a city this month. It’s a significant milestone – one of many over the years – in our history as a community. We want to share some of the stories about the events and people who helped to make Warman into what it is today. First, we want to acknowledge that before the birth of Warman in 1905, there were others who had lived here and were intimately connected to this land. We are gathered today on the traditional lands of the Plains Cree or Nehiyawak people and it was through the signing of Treaty 6 at Fort Carlton in 1876, that created the possibility for settlement on this land. The first non-Aboriginal people to settle here were the Temperance Colonists, who came from Ontario to Saskatchewan in 1882 to get away from the evil influences of alcohol. They chose a piece of land that stretched from Clark’s Crossing here on the north to the Whitecap First Nation in the south. J.F. Clark started a ferry crossing in 1882, near the present Clarkboro Ferry site, and near the telegraph line that had been there since 1876. Many of these colonists were influential in shaping Warman’s beginnings.

SETTLERS ARRIVE In 1890, the CPR Railroad was completed between Regina and Prince Albert, making it possible for settlers to take up homestead land in this area. The first Mennonite settlers came to this area in 1891, settling first at Rosthern. More began to arrive so that in 1895 they were given five Townships of land, which became known as the Hague-Osler Mennonite Reserve, stretching from Warman to Rosthern. Julius Klassen, an Old Colony Mennonite from Osterwick, sold this land to de-

Downtown Warman along North Railway Street around 1907 veloper McKenzie Mann, so that the town of Warman could be built. Klassen Street is named for Julius Klassen. In the fall of 1904, the Canadian Northern railroad was completed running east and west, and where it intersected with the CPR railroad, it created a diamond

shape, at the present place we now know as Warman. Warman was named or nicknamed “Diamond” for a short time because of this. The town was informally known as ‘Diamond’, later formally named Warman after Cy Warman, a journalist employed by the railway.

Warman saw tremendous growth in the early days but that excitement was shortlived See page 7 for more...

Excitement:

Community sees its share of ups and downs Continued from previous page

Cy Warman

residents of Warman generously provided food, lodging and hospitality to those who were in need, even though they had little themselves. The town was located in the most densely-populated rural municipality in the province, and with the RM office located here, many came here looking for jobs or assistance. Some found seasonal jobs on the railroad, but many more remained unemployed. Warman developed a reputation as a place where poor people could find refuge. In Low German, Warman was described this way: “wea nicht patolen Kon, die siedelt en Warman oon.” Which means: “those who cannot afford to pay for their accommodations, settled in Warman.” People constructed simple houses, often placing them on whatever space was available, whether it was on a surveyed lot or not. People lived simply. They were very resilient. They raised most of their own food, they had cows, chickens and pigs in town. They grew big gardens to feed their large

TRIUMPH & TRAGEDY Between the years 1905 and 1912, Warman grew very fast, as stores, banks, hotels and churches popped up on Railway Street, and houses were constructed for the new residents. There was speculation that Warman would become a city, but there were some factors that kept it from happening at that time. A fire in the business district in December, 1908, destroyed many thriving businesses. The tornado that came through on July 4, 1910, destroyed homes and other businesses. There were also grass fires that threatened the town. Warman also did not have access to water, like nearby Saskatoon did, since it was located 4 miles from the South Saskatchewan River. But Warman had access to the railroad, and was the centre of trading because of it. In 1912, the Saskatoon Board of trade, which felt threatened by Warman’s popularity, sent a train into Warman daily. Known as the “Merry Widow”, this train strategically arrived in Warman when other passenger trains arrived here. The passengers were wined and dined and lured into coming back to Saskatoon and then returned back to Warman the next day to meet their connecting trains. A combination of all these factors kept the town from growing, as some had speculated it might. Further loss came in 1918-19 when many who had served in Canada’s armed forces in World War I did not return home alive. This was followed by a terrible epidemic of Spanish Influenza, which also took the lives of many young people. By 1927, Warman returned back to hamlet status and its administrative affairs were run by the local Rural Municipality of Warman. The depression of the 1930s brought poverty and hardship across the country. Warman, too, was impacted in a variety of ways. Many “rode the rails” looking for employment, and with Warman at the intersection of two railroad lines, many came here hungry and tired. The

Bay. Both of our fathers became very involved in leadership roles in their community and worked respectfully with one another. Following World War II, economic conditions began to improve, there were more jobs, and the town began to grow. Warman had a hospital and well-respected physician, Dr. W.I. Wilkin. Many patients came from throughout the valley area to seek treatment and advice from Dr. Wilkin. By the early 1950s, the town was experiencing its first growth since its inception. A few new businesses were started and many new homes were built and families moved in. By 1954, the price of lots jumped from $15 to $100 per lot, a new school had been built, and two additions were made to accommodate all of the children.

ANOTHER BOOMTIME It was in the 1950s that the idea of a bedroom community came into being. Many new residents had grown up on farms, but were not able to take over the family farm. The possibility of moving to the city was not preferred, but since many Mennonites had grown up in villages, they felt comfortable in a small village like Warman, where they knew their neighbours, shared some of the same values, and felt comfortable and safe, raising their families here. Most found jobs in Saskatoon and commuted back and forth to Saskatoon daily but travelled together to reduce the costs. The community of Warman continued to grow so that by 1962, the hamlet had again reached village status. Four years later, in 1966, Warman was incorporated as a Town. Up until then, the administration of Warman was handled by the rural

only NHL player to have played on all of the NHL Original Six teams. He was instrumental in getting senior hockey organized here in town. In the early 1970s, sewer and water were provided for the residents. Up until then, outdoor toilets and carry-out pails were the only options for sewage disposal, and water was taken from wells and often stored in cisterns. One Warman bachelor was able to maintain this lifestyle until this past year, when he was moved into a nursing home. Warman really began to grow in the 1970s and particularly after 1976, when it was discovered that Eldorado Nuclear was planning on building a uranium refinery east of town. The issue was very controversial and two factions were created that threatened to divide the community. For four years, this issue was debated and in January, 1980, public hearings were held to gather expert and public input on the pros and cons of constructing a refinery here. The refinery was turned down by the federal appointed panel, because they felt that the negative social impact on the community would be too great. In 1977, high school students were no longer bussed to Osler for high school, but could remain in Warman. Osler and Martensville students now came here for their final years of schooling. Warman began to excel in sports. The Warman Senior Men’s hockey team won the Valley News Cup in 1971, the Juvenile C Hockey team won the provincial C Championship in 1973. This was the first team to win a provincial title, and the Midget Triple A Hockey Team, known as the Diggers, was formed, creating opportunities for local youth to expand hockey interests. Warman teams also excelled in softball, soccer and other sports, with

families and they shared what they had with their neighbours.

WAR TIME AND THE COMMUNITY RESPONDS In 1939, World War II broke out in Europe and Canada soon joined with the British (Allied) forces to fight against Germany. The Canadian Government responded by recruiting young men and women to serve in Canada’s military. In Warman, there were two responses to the war and the call to join the armed forces. My father, Arthur Neufeld, chose to serve as a soldier and served from 1940 to 1945 with the Royal Canadian Ordinance Corp. While stationed in Britain, he also met and married his lovely wife, Nancy Grover, who came back to Warman with him after the war, where they both served the community in a variety of capacities. My Dad, John Doell, chose not to serve in the military but served as a Conscientious Objector. Mennonites and others were given the option of alternative service, rather than serving in the military, so my Dad worked in a lumber camp in northeastern Saskatchewan, near Hudson

The building still stands today, has been renovated and is now a residence. municipality, but now they elected their own council, erected a town office and hired staff. The first elected Mayor was Art Neufeld. The arena and curling rink were constructed in 1965 and soon hockey teams, broomball teams, figure skating and curling were organized. Many local people generously volunteered their time and gave of their resources to get things going. Vic Lynn and family bought the Warman Hotel in the 1960s. He was the

MODERNIZATION OF INFRASTRUCTURE For the past 30 years, Warman has experienced a steady and sustained growth of not only people, who have chosen to live here and call this their home, but also a business community that has provided employment to many local residents and a stable resources base for the community. Through the hard work of Mayors, Councils, businesses and individuals the town saw development of many capital projects including: • treated water piped in from Saskatoon • storm sewers • Brian King Centre • modern, leading edge fire hall • new municipal building and offices • many new and growing businesses This dedication to well-planned and sustained growth continues to be evidenced in our new city. Going forward we look forward to great things...services and conveniences that have not even been imagined. The future looks bright indeed.

Cy Warman: The poet, author and songwriter Will the lights be white? The Rise and Oft, when I feel my engine swerve, As o’er strange rails we fare, I strain my eyes around the curve For what awaits us there. When swift and free she carries me Through yards unknown at night, I look along the line to see That all the lamps are white The blue light marks the crippled car, The green light signals slow; The red light is a danger light, The white light, “Let her go.” Again the open fields we roam, And, when the night is fair, I look up in the starry dome And wonder what’s up there. For who can speak for those who dwell Behind the curving sky? No man has ever lived to tell Just what it means to die. Swift toward life’s terminal I trend, The run seems short to-night; God only knows what’s at the end -I hope the lamps are white. -Songs of Cy Warman, 1911

“Sweet Marie”

Music by Raymon Moore, Lyrics by Cy Warman (1892)

I’ve a secret in my heart, Sweet Marie A tale I would impart, Love, to thee. Every daisy in the dell Knows my secret, knows it well, And yet I dare not tell Sweet Marie. When I hold your hand in mine, Sweet Marie, A feeling most divine comes to me. All the world is full of spring, All the warblers on the wing, And I listen while they sing, Sweet Marie. (Chorus) Come to me, Sweet Marie. Sweet Marie, come to me. Not because your face is fair, Love, to see. But your soul, so pure and sweet, Makes my happiness complete, Makes me falter at your feet, Sweet Marie. In the morn’ when I awake, Sweet Marie, Seems to me my heart will break, Love, for thee. Every wave that shakes the shore Seems to sing it o’er and o’er, Seems to say that I adore Sweet Marie. When the sunset tints the west, Sweet Marie, And I sit down to rest, Love, with thee, Every star that studs the sky Seems to stand and wonder why. They’re so dimmer than your eye, Sweet Marie. (Chorus) Come to me, Sweet Marie. Sweet Marie, come to me. Not because your face is fair, Love, to see. But your soul, so pure and sweet, Makes my happiness complete, Makes me falter at your feet, Sweet Marie.

Creede

Here’s a land where all are equal - Of high or lowly birth A land where men make millions, Dug from the dreary earth. Here meek and mild-eyed burros on mineral mountains feed. It’s day all day in the daytime, And there is no night in Creede The cliffs are solid silver, With wondrous wealth untold And the beds of her running rivers are lined with purest gold. While the world is filled with sorrow, And hearts must break and bleed It’s day all day in the daytime, And there is no night in Creede.

Fall of Creede

A thousand burdened burros filled The narrow, winding, wriggling trail. A hundred settlers came to build, Each day, new houses in the vale. A hundred gamblers came to feed On these same settlers - this was Creede. Slanting Annie, Gambler Joe And bad Bob Ford, Sapolio, Or Soapy Smith, as he was known, Ran games pecularily their own, And everything was open wide, And men drank absinthe on the side. And now the Faro Bank is closed, And Mr. Faro’s gone away To see new fields, it is supposed, More verdant fields. The gamblers say The man who worked the shell and ball Has gone back to the Capitol. The winter winds blow bleak and chill, The quaking, quivering aspen waves About the summit of the hill Above the unrecorded graves Where halt abandoned burros feed And coyotes call - and this is Creede. Lone graves whose head-boards bear no name, Whose silent owners lived like brutes And died as doggedly, - but game, And most of them died in their boots. We mind among the unwrit names The man who murdered Jesse James. We saw him murdered, saw him fall, And saw his mad assassin gloat Above him. Heard his moans and all, And saw the shot holes in his throat, And men moved on and gave no heed To life or death - and this is Creede.

Cy Warman had a way with words. The man for whom the City of Warman was named was one of the most influential writers of his era. A prolific journalist, novelist, and poet, Warman’s books were consistent best-sellers and his articles in leading newspapers and magazines were scooped up by eager readers across North America as soon as they hit the newsstands. A contemporary of Mark Twain, Jack London, and Stephen Crane, Warman’s novels were realistic depictions of life on the western frontier that celebrated the heroism and struggles of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. His stories were always based on real events. Whether it was a gunfight in a saloon in a western mining camp or a locomotive speeding blindly down the track in a prairie blizzard – his writing style brought the words on the page to life and left lasting images in the reader’s mind. When he passed away in Chicago on April 11, 1914, just a few months shy of his 59th birthday, his obituary appeared in leading newspapers around the globe. In the 98 years that have elapsed, his star has faded, but his influence remains. Among his legacy are his books, his family, and the community that bears his name.

Poet Rockies of the

His life story reads a lot like one of his novels. Cyrus Clarence Warman was born in Greenup, Illinois, USA on June 22, 1855. The grandson of Wilson Warman, and son of John and Nancy Askew Warman, Cy grew up on a small farm that was homesteaded by his father. John Warman was a veteran of the American-Mexican war who received a land grant from the American government in payment for his service in the army. While Cy’s formal schooling was limited, he was a voracious reader and was largely selftaught. He gradually developed a poetic tendency, and reportedly astonished his schoolmates on “commencement day” by reading an original poem entitled “The Last Day of School.” He married Ida Blanche Hays of St. Jacob, Illinois, in 1879, and tried his hand as a wheat broker after the newly-married couple moved to Pochahontas, Illinois. He invested $1,000 in a single deal, but the market wasn’t kind to him, and he lost all but 50 cents when the market crashed. Looking to make a new start, Cy and Ida headed west to the new territory of Colorado in 1880, where the silver mining boom was in full swing and railroad lines were being built through the Rocky Mountains to haul out the valuable ore. Boom towns were springing up virtually overnight as new discoveries were made. After helping to plant an orchard in Canon City, Cy Warman then took a job in a silver smelter where he worked 12-hour shifts doing back-breaking labour. Cy and Ida moved to Denver, where he was hired by the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad as a “wiper” where he worked to keep the engines clean. He learned the trade on the job and progressed quickly up the ranks to fireman and eventually became a locomotive engineer. He loved the railroad life and was good at his job, but his health wasn’t the best, and the long hours and hard work took its toll. He made the decision to leave the engineer’s trade after an incident one night in which he had fallen asleep at the throttle of his engine, with the train

rushing along at full speed. He woke up with a start and realized that he had unintentionally endangered the lives of everyone on board the train, and vowed not to let that happen again. During his time with the railroad, Cy and Ida had one daughter, Charlotte, who later grew to adulthood and moved to Alabama where she married a man named Joseph Mcveigh. Cy Warman always maintained contact with Charlotte throughout his life, and she was with him at his bedside when he passed away in Chicago in 1914. Sadly, in 1887, his young wife, Ida, died in childbirth. The baby also died. Cy Warman made a new start by taking on the editorship of a magazine called the Western Railway in 1888. The publication, owned by investors from three railroad companies, was one of the leading magazines in its field at the time. In March, 1892, Cy Warman sold his interest in the Western Railway magazine and moved to Creede, Colorado where he and two partners, Charles A. Johnson of Alamosa, Colorado and

Harry P. Pabor of Creede, established a daily newspaper called the Creede Chronicle. Warman became the editor while another newspaper man from Denver, William Millburn, was hired as

Cy Warman:

home in London and the company’s headquarters in Montreal. Warman also cultivated his political connections in Ottawa and was a close friend of Frank Oliver, a federal Liberal Cabinet Minister. Around 1904, a railway building boom was underway in western Canada and the Canadian Northern rail line was being built across the western territories. By 1905, the federal government wanted to boost immigration to the newly-created provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta and the Western Canada Immigration Association was given funds to hire Cy Warman as a staff writer. Warman also spent some time in 1906 chronicling the construction of the Canadian Northern main line. In appreciation for his work, the CNR named stations in Saskatchewan for both him and his daughter. The City of Warman, originally incorporated in 1906, is named after Cy Warman and the village of Vonda is named after Vonda Marie Warman.

The newspaper editor, poet and railway man Continued from previous page Meanwhile, Jefferson “Soapy” Smith and his gang of thugs controlled many businesses through threats and coercion. Cy Warman recounted in one of his stories that Bob Ford was one of the first men he met when he arrived in Creede, and Ford showed him around the camp. Ford had a habit of never sitting with his back to the door. When he was in a saloon with a mirror along the bar he always positioned himself so that he had a full view of everyone behind him. Ford was forever anticipating that one of his enemies would shoot him in the back the same way he had shot Jesse James. Cy Warman asked Ford one day: “Are you expecting someone?” To which Ford replied, with a hint of bitterness: “I’m always expecting someone.” Despite setting up shop in a virtuallylawless town, Cy Warman proceeded to put out a newspaper that stuck to the facts and didn’t pull any punches. He was critical of the gangsters and advocated the need for law enforcement and justice. Ford personally vowed on several occasions to kill the entire staff of the Chronicle, including the editor, but was himself gunned down in his own saloon before he followed through on the threat. Ironically, Cy Warman was one of the first on the scene of Ford’s murder, and wrote an eyewitness account of the incident in his newspaper. Soapy Smith, on the other hand, had a grudging respect for Cy Warman and actually protected the newspaper editor on occasion. Smith was eventually shot in a gunfight on the docks of Skagway, Alaska by a group of vigilantes who were intent on putting an end to Smith’s corrupt control of the town during the Klondike gold rush in the late 1890s. Soapy Smith Cy Warman was well-liked and respected in Creede while he ran the newspaper, despite the fact that he “perpetrated poetry” on a rough-andtumble audience. The miners and cowboys in Creede jokingly referred to him as their “Poet Lariat.”

SWEET MARIE

In 1892, when he was still living in Creede, Cy Warman travelled to Denver, where he met his future wife, Myrtle Marie Jones. A young and pretty woman, Marie had been educated at the Sacred Heart Catholic school in London, Ontario. It was during his courtship of Marie that Cy wrote his famous poem, “Sweet Marie”, which was first published in the Creede Chronicle. The lyrics of the poem were later put to music by Raymon Moore in 1893 and the song became a worldwide smash hit, selling a million copies in a few months. Cy and Marie were married on May 17, 1892 in Denver, Colorado. They took up residence in Creede. Cy’s newspaper, the Chronicle, was losing money and the town of Creede itself was experiencing a bust as the price of silver dropped dramatically in late 1892 and early 1893. Cy and Marie Warman left Creede and moved to Colorado Springs, where he worked briefly as a reporter for the Rocky Mountain News. During this time, Cy Warman wrote a landmark short story about a marathon ride from New York to Chicago on a series of locomotives, entitled “A Thousand

THE FINAL HOURS

Front page of the May 13, 1893 Creede Chronicle Miles in a Night” for McClure’s magazine. The story established Warman’s reputation as the best writer of railroad stories in America and set the standard for that type of fiction for years to come. He had also submitted a number of poems to the New York Sun, the most influential daily newspaper of its day. Charles Dana, the newspaper’s celebrated editor, was so impressed he devoted an entire page in one issue to Warman’s poems, and christened him “The Poet of the Rockies”. One of Warman’s poems, entitled “Creede”, captured the spirit of the silver boom perfectly. It is still widely quoted in the town of Creede’s tourist brochures and he holds a special place in the folklore of the community. With offers from several major eastern publishers and magazines, Cy and Marie Warman left Colorado and moved to New York. From there they travelled extensively into Europe and Asia where Cy Warman wrote his first book, Mountain Melodies, and contributed travel articles about European railways to North American magazines. He sold copies of Mountain Melodies on trains, at news stands and tourist stops for 50 cents a copy. He wrote another book, “Tales of an Engineer” in Paris, and found a ready market for his work. During this period they also travelled to Alaska, where Cy Warman wrote a landmark history of the building of the White Pass railway during the dying days of the Klondike Gold Rush.

family moved to London, Ontario, where their daughter, Vonda Marie was born. The house they built near the campus of the University of Western Ontario is now deemed a heritage site and is a popular tourist attraction. Cy Warman was a popular speaker and he made many appearances in cities across eastern Canada and the US. Much of his popularity as a speaker came from his one-liners and jokes. He served at least one term as President of the American Association of Press Humorists and possessed what his contemporaries called “a rare and delicate sense of humor. He had the faculty of making many friends – and keeping them. He was, too, a lover of nature and therein lay much of his fine descriptive power.”

LIFE IN CANADA

During his years in London, Cy Warman wrote extensively of the railway building boom in western Canada and his work attracted the attention of the owners of the Grant Trunk Railway. They hired him as a publicity writer. He reported to only one superior – the president of the company – and commuted between his

RAISING A FAMILY

The couple returned to the United States and settled in Washington, DC, where their first son, Dana Cy, was born in 1894. The boy was named after Charles Dana of the New York Sun, a close friend of Cy Warman. Their second son, Bryan, was born in 1896, and was named after William Jennings Bryan, also a friend of Cy’s. A third son, Robert Burr, came along a year later. In 1899, the

Cy Warman passed away at St. Luke’s Hospital in Chicago, Illinois, on April 7, 1914 of paralysis brought on by a sudden stroke. He was in a coma for three weeks prior to his death. He suffered the stroke while having tea with a group of friends at the Congress Hotel in Chicago. According to a report in the Chicago Evening Post of March 30, 1914: “He suddenly felt ill, and jumping up, he pressed his hands to his head and exclaimed: ‘My God!’ Friends took him to his rooms at the hotel and a few days later his condition was so critical that physicians had him removed to the hospital. There, no one but his doctors and his wife, Mrs. Marie Warman, is permitted to see him. The poet’s true character was best displayed at the time he was stricken. He had several engagements and had also started to write some verses for Donald Brian, entitled ‘Heart of the Rose.’ Real-

Cy Warman’s “Sweet Marie” locket is inscribed May 17, 1894

izing his illness would prevent him from keeping his engagements and from finishing the poetry, he exclaimed: ‘I can’t be sick. I can’t break my promises’.” His wife, Marie Warman, was notified of his illness and she travelled as quickly as possible to be at his bedside, where she remained until he passed away. After a memorial service in Chicago that was attended by hundreds of newspapermen, publishers, railroad workers and railroad owners, his body was taken to London, Ontario, where another funeral service was held and his body interred. His obituary and news of his death appeared in newspapers across the continent. Some years later, Cy Warman’s body was moved from London to a cemetery in Anne Arbor, Michigan. The family continued to live in Ontario and the three Warman brothers all inherited the creative writing gene from their father and went into the advertising and copywriting business. Their sister, Vonda Marie Warman, died of a ruptured appendix about 1930. Cy and Marie Warman had six grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren and 24 great-great-grandchildren. Cy Warman’s books are still available online and in print.

Final Frontier Creede, Colorado was home to some of the most notorious gamblers and gunslingers in America’s fading wild west By TERRY PUGH tpugh@ccgazette.ca

The silver mining boomtown had its roots when Nicholas Creede discovered a rich vein of ore in the Holy Moses deposit on the banks of Willow Creek, a tributary of the Rio Grande River, in 1890. The name came about when Creede hollered: “Holy Moses! I’ve struck it rich!” The mining camp really took off when the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad was pushed up the narrow canyon to the minesite in 1891, as the population

swelled virtually overnight to 10,000 people. The Rio Grande Railroad had sleeper cars on sidings which coud be rented by the night. The traffic into Creede was so great that people rode on top of the cars and hanging off the sides. Fortunes were made in short order as silver and gold were extracted from mines with such colourful names as Kentucky Belle, Holy Moses, Comodore, Last Chance and Amethyst. Two trains a day arrived and departed from Creede, carrying incoming prospectors and outgoing wealth. During the height of the silver boom in 1892, over a million dollars in silver was shipped down the valley, and Creede was the most popular destination in Colorado.

OUTLAWS AND GAMBLERS

Calamity Jane

Along with the prospectors, of course, came the shady element who made their living by separating people from their money. Gamblers, saloon keepers, and ladies of the evening made up a big part of the population of Creede. Bob Ford, who shot Jesse James in Missouri a decade earlier, set up the busi-

Jefferson “Soapy” Smith, owner of the Orleans Club, soon declared himself boss of Creede. Bat Masterson, of Dodge City-Wyatt Earp fame, operated another saloon and also took a turn as town marshall in Creede. Other legendary Wild West characters who were known to have lived in Creede at the height of the boom were Calamity Jane Cannary, Poker Alice Tubbs, and Slanting Annie.

FRONTIER JOURNALIST

Cy Warman was not a gambler or gunfighter. He was a journalist with a poet’s flair for the dramatic, and he vividly captured the scenes

he saw in the streets of Creede. He recorded a first-hand account of the murder of Bob Ford in his own saloon at the hands of a fellow outlaw, Edward O’Kelley, in a story in the Creede Chronicle, the daily paper which he edited. He later expanded the story – called “A Quiet Day in Creede” - in a book published a decade later entitled “Frontier Stories”. Cy Warman also wrote a biography of Nicholas Creede, entitled “The Prospector”, which was published in 1894. The night life in Creede went on until dawn. A famous poem by Cy Warman describes the town in its heyday, and is still widely quoted in the community – 120 years later:

“Here’s a land where all are equal, of high or lowly birth, A land where men make millions, dug from the dreary earth, Where meek and mild eyed burros, on mineral mountains feed, It’s day all day in the daytime, and there is no night in Creede. The cliffs are solid silver, of wondrous wealth untold, And the beds of the running rivers, are lined with purest gold While the world is filled with sorrow, and hearts must break and bleed, It’s day all day in the daytime, and there is no night in Creede.”

for the new movie were released last week and are available online. Creede is also looking at the possibility of a revitalization of the mining sector, with several companies using modern technology to probe the mountains in search of valuable ores.

WARMAN’S SISTER CITY

Continued from previous page In 1893, the silver boom collapsed and Creede emptied out as quickly as it had filled up. The population declined rapidly, and even though the odd mine reopened in the decades that followed, the boom never returned. The fortunes of Creede followed the price of silver, and by the 1930s, the community was just barely hanging on. Scheduled rail service into Creede ended in 1949, and the last rail shipment of silver ore was made from Creede in 1973.

The historic connection with Cy Warman, the “Poet of the Rockies”, spurred the Creede City Council earlier this month to declare Creede a “Sister City” to Warman, Saskatchewan. The Warman Council adopted a similar resolution at a meeting in September, 2012. The initiative is designed to strengthen the ties between these two communities at all levels.

THRIVING COMMUNITY

But the town is far from a ghost town. With a year-round population of over 800 people, the community blossoms in the summer to host thousands of people who come to the region for its unsurpassed fishing, hunting, hiking, history and breathtaking scenery. Located on an historic highway known as the “Silver Thread”, Creede is home to one of the finest repertory theatre groups in the western states, an artists’ community, and thriving businesses. The town relies heavily on tourism for its main source of income, and is one of the most hospitable places in Colorado. The 19th century buildings in the heart of town are all preserved exactly as they appeared during the peak of the silver rush in 1892. To get a taste of the town, check out the community’s website at www.creede. com .

In fact, the character of the town is so unique that it was used as the setting for a soon-to-be-released $250 million feature film by the Walt Disney Studios. The Lone Ranger, starring Johnny Depp, was shot in and around Creede in June, 2012, and is due for release in July, 2013. Trailers

Warman declares ‘Sister City’ affiliation with Creede, CO Cities bridge historic connection with pioneer journalist Cy Warman By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

T

he Town of Warman is not only growing up to become a city, it’s also expanding the family. A resolution proclaiming the soon-to-be City of Warman as a “Sister City” to Creede, Colorado, was adopted by the Warman Council at a meeting in mid-September. On October, 2, the city council of Creede, Colorado adopted a similar resolution. The proclamations were signed by the Mayors of the two centres: Sheryl Spence for Warman, and Eric Grossman for Creede. There is a historic con-

nection between the two communities in the person of Cy Warman, the American-born author and journalist who chronicled the westward expansion of the Canadian Northern Railway in 1905. The Town of Warman was named after Cy Warman. The City of Creede was the town where Cy Warman set up his first daily newspaper in 1892. The Creede Chronicle, edited by Warman, was recognized as one of the leading papers in the state of Colorado at that time. Warman later achieved worldwide fame for his books, poems and articles.
