Warman Fire Department members clean up the scene of an early-morning fire Friday at Tomas the Cook Restaurant on North Railway Avenue

Popular Warman restaurant suffers major damage in fire

Damage is extensive following an overnight fire at a restaurant in Warman. According to Warman RCMP, firefighters were notified of an alarm just before midnight Thursday, October 18 at Tomas the Cook Restaurant on North Railway Ave. A small fire was in progress and was quickly extinguished, however, the building suffered extensive smoke damage. The restaurant building also houses Flamingo Pizza and the Sahara Sports Bar. Warman Hotel, located next door, was unaffected

by the fire but was evacuated for precautionary reasons. No one was inside the restaurant at the time of the blaze and there were no injuries, police added. Firefighters were on scene for approximately three hours fighting the blaze. Once it was extinguished, fire crews remained at the building the following day, working with RCMP members to investigate and evaluate the extent of the damage. The cause of the fire is under unknown but initial reports indicate it likely started in the kitchen area.

Good thing the parks aren’t named like Warman’s newest school For several months (okay, it’s been a couple of years, but who’s counting) readers have stopped me on the street, bent my ear at the rink (and one time I was even approached at the golf course!) and asked why I never write a column on a regular basis. The answer has been and, up until this issue, was always that I had no time to properly think through a concept, put it on paper in draft form, re-write it, then edit it into a presentable, legible, thought-provoking piece. In other words, I just didn’t have time to do it regularly. And my grandfather always said if a person can’t be regular...well, I’ll spare you his advice. But, here we are in the busiest time of year for us in the paper business and apparently I don’t have enough on my plate. I have so much time on my hands that I asked my dedicated staff (God bless ‘em) if I should start writing a weekly shoot ‘em up, wring ‘em out hard nosed editorial column each week. The answer was a resounding “YES!”. I think the urge to merge written words can be traced way back to a day over two weeks ago (yes, a long time ago in our business). Reading the accounts of newspaperman Cy Warman (not to be

confused with that flashy Korean pop singer Psy) and how he regularly kept up with the colourful characters in the wild west town of Creede, Colorado. You see, Cy called it as it was and pulled no punches. If someone deserved praise, they were praised. If someone deserved a printed word lobotomy, they got it. This Cy was definitely Gangnam Style in his era! Now, I’ll be the first to admit times have changed. And they’ve changed in a big way. I’m sure it would be disappointing to Cy. We now have things like privacy policies, freedom of information requests and the Youth Criminal Justice Act that protects the identities of our beloved criminals under the age of 18. That said, I’ve always been a believer the local paper should offer a forum for readers to get things off their chest. As I just mentioned, time hasn’t exactly been on my side as the paper has grown. Resources have been stretched to the limit and anyone who knows me personally can attest to the time I spend volunteering on various boards and organizations. That all changes now. Without providing the rope and a tree, it’s time to get down to the nitty gritty. The first order of business this week is to call out and offer up some advice to our school division. Next time a school needs to be named, use some creativity and drop the word

people. Thankfully the city didn’t lower expectations and name them Warman Community Park One, Warman Community Park Two, etc. etc. I, for one, am really glad to know city council used some creativity.

“community”. After what was likely many meetings and brainstorming sessions, the best our school division could come up with was Warman Community Middle School? As I would proclaim with a raised brow and a mocking sneer after shanking a seven-iron from 165 out: Really? I won’t go so far as to say my six-year-old son could do better picking a name but, sadly, it would be close. And based on the reaction around the city I’d say I’m not alone with the word “really?” There is nothing wrong with the word community. In fact, many good things can be associated with its usage including the terms community newspaper and community association. But, were all the other good names already taken? There is no doubt a long list exists of distinguished educators and community leaders that should have their names attached to the buildings we are erecting. In fact, Warman recently named three parks after such

***** The province seems to be putting off building a badly needed interchange at the junction of Wanuskewin Road and Highway 11. Despite the fact it is the site of multiple fatal crashes and even more injury collisions, nothing seems to be moving the government to improve the safety at this incredibly busy location. You don’t suppose there is a good reason for this, do you? The only thing I can think of is that once built, the new perimeter highway around Saskatoon will preclude the need for an overpass at that location. According to the RM of Corman Park map, the new perimeter highway will intersect with Highway 11 at the Millar Avenue extension. Smart money bets this is where the overpass will be built and the only northbound traffic on Wanuskewin past Penner Road will be traffic merging onto Highway 11. In the meantime – until some sort of perimeter highway is built – we will sadly see more tragic headlines


and photos from that corner. And here’s a newsflash: We could also use a couple of other interchanges at the entrances to Martensville and Warman, too. I guess Christmas is just around the corner so we had best try to stay on the nice list. ***** The City of Warman. I like the sound of that! Let’s party!

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2012 • PG. 3


Warman becomes province’s newest city this weekend Warman will officially become Saskatchewan’s 16th city next week, and everyone is invited to the celebration. A special event is slated for Saturday, October 27 at the Legends Centre in Warman, beginning at 12:30 pm. Provincial Municipal Affairs Minister Jim Reiter and Warman Mayor Sheryl Spence will kick off the event by signing the paper declaring Warman a city and unveiling Warman’s new logo and flag. A short program features a pictorial retrospective of the community’s history and a special address by Bryan Warman, a grandson of Cy Warman, the distinguished writer for whom the new city was named. A congratulatory video message from Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall will also be screened. Warman was first incorporated as a village in 1906. While the population declined in the 1930s, it recovered in the 1950s and became a town in 1966. In the last decade it has mushroomed in size, and currently ranks as the sixth fastest-growing community in Canada, accordTHINGS TO SEE & DO ing to the 2011 national r A live broadcast of the census.

Warman Mayor Sheryl Spence said the time is right for the community to become a city. Not only is the population well above the 5,000 minimum required for city status in Saskatchewan, the municipal election October 24 is the ideal opportunity to welcome the community’s first city council. “The community of Warman has grown from village to town back to village to town and now to city,” said Spence. “As we approach 8,000 residents we will now turn the next page in Warman’s history by becoming Saskatchewan 16th city. We are very excited about the opportunities and possibilities that will come with this new status. Warman is and will continue to be the best place to live, raise your family, work, play and retire. Please join us in celebrating this very special occasion.” Full details of the Warman City Celebration event are available in this issue and also online at the municipal website: and also at the Clark’s Crossing Gazette website: .

UNDER ONE ROOF Construction of new Martensville City Hall planned to begin next month By TERRY PUGH

Four years after becoming a city, the final piece of the puzzle is being put into place for Martensville, the second fastest-growing urban municipality in Canada.

Construction of the new Martensville City Hall will likely begin sometime in November, after a general contractor is selected to oversee the project, says Scott Blevins, Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) for the city. Blevins said the design for the building is now complete, and the city has released an architect’s rendition of what the new city hall will look like. “It’s pretty exciting, because it’s one step closer to becoming a reality for Martensville,” said Blevins in a phone interview Friday, October 19. “The project is going out to tender over the next week and, hopefully based on that, we’ll get some good pricing from contractors,” noted Blevins. “It appears to

be an opportune time to put out a tender for this type of building because contractors seem to have caught up with other projects or have expanded their capacity and can now take on something like this.” Tenders for the new multi-million dollar building opened October 22 and the bidding process will close in early November. A decision on the successful contract will be made by the end of November.


During the 2012 municipal budget deliberations, Martensville Council adopted a resolution approving expenditures for designing and constructing a new city hall. The decision was necessary, noted Blevins, because the city department offices are widely-separated at the present time. “Currently the administration operates out of three separate facilities, which make the day-to-day business very difficult for residents looking for information,” he explained. “We’ve had complaints from taxpayers because it’s very frustrating and inconvenient to have to run back and forth between different buildings.” The new city hall building will be located on city-owned land adjacent to the existing Civic Centre, with the main entrance facing the intersection of 1st Street South and 1st Avenue South.

The building will be big enough to accommodate the current staff and the projected needs of the municipality five to 10 years into the future, noted Blevins. “It’s going to be just under 11,000 square feet,” he said. “The concept includes a functional facility that is sharp but not elaborate. The design will also incorporate plans for expansion rather than having to construct a whole new facility in the future as the community grows.” The design of the building was done by Maurice Soulodre Architect Ltd. Blevins said the construction work should start as soon as possible, once the general contractor is selected. “The foundation, with the piles and grade beams can all be done in the coming months,” said Blevins. “This work can continue right through the winter, because there is no basement. The only things below ground are the piles.” Blevins said the city will be encouraging the successful contractor to use as many local sub-contractors as possible during the construction period. “We want to have as much local flavour to this project as we can,” he said. “We have quite a few construction contractors in Martensville, and when we look at evaluating the tenders, that will be one of the things we take into account.”



Body found following vehicle fire Police are investigating a suspicious vehicle fire and death in the RM of Corman Park south of Saskatoon. According to Saskatoon RCMP the incident occurred just before midnight on Tuesday, October 16. At approximately 11:52 p.m. Saskatoon Fire and Protective Services were called to the vehicle fire west of Highway 219 at Baker Road, near the Corman Park landfill. The body of a male was discovered in the front seat of the vehicle. Members of the Saskatoon RCMP remained on scene overnight. Members of the RCMP Major Crimes Unit North, Forensic Identification Unit,

RCMP collision analyst, RCMP police dog, the Provincial Coroner, as well as a provincial fire scene examiner all investigated the scene later that day. The investigation remains a sudden death investigation at this time and RCMP are treating it as suspicious

Controlled detonation conducted at Corman Industrial Park Those out for a leisurely Sunday morning drive south of Warman perhaps heard a couple of loud booming sounds. At around 11:00 technicians from the Saskatoon Police Service Explosive Dispos-

al Unit set off two large explosions in a pit at a business in the Corman Industrial Park. Saskatoon Fire and Protective Services and MD Ambulance assisted in the controlled detonation of the expired materials.

School outdoor story-board aims to make literacy, learning fun By TERRY PUGH



Langham Elementary School librarian Leeanne Yellowlees (left) facilitates the opening page of the school’s “story-board” project that was set up in the schoolyard during Education Week October 15-19 Langham School Principal Laura Prefontaine (right) was one of several teachers who bundled up and staffed the different stages along the outdoor story-board path while students read the pages.

e, u l a v ry a n i d r Extrao innovation , quality industry and an arranty w g n i d lea

tudents at Langham Elementary School got a taste of the great outdoors while brushing up on their literacy skills during Education Week last Wednesday. The school posted an innovative “story-board” around the perimeter of the school ground last week, where students read the book – page by page – as they made their way along the schoolyard fence. Younger students were paired up with their older “care partners” who helped them read pages from the book, “Olivia saves the Circus”. The cold, windy conditions didn’t faze the students, who obviously enjoyed the novel experience. “We want to make this an annual event,” explained Langham School Principal Laura Prefontaine. “By posting the pages outdoors, we’re encouraging everyone to come and view it. We’ll leave it up for the entire week so not only the kids can enjoy it but the entire community can come and read it with their children.” The story-board event was just one of several events at the school during Education Week, all with a “circus” theme and all aimed at including the larger community. A “circus parade” was held Thursday, October 18 and a daylong “cardboard arcade” event on Friday, October 19. Leeanne Yellowlees, Librarian at Langham Elementary School, said the idea for the story-board came from an article she read about a librarian in Vermont who tried it out in a small town and met with great success. “I thought it was just a wonderful idea to get kids out with their parents and their families,” said Yellowlees. “They get the benefits of outdoor exercise and reading together. It’s a different atmosphere – a different environment that helps get children excited about reading.” Yellowlees said reading is usually viewed as a passive experience, and many children find it difficult to sit still and read. “The challenge is to make learning fun for kids,” she said. “This generation of children is bombarded with so much fast-paced electronic entertainment coming at them, and reading a book may seem boring to them by comparison. We want to make things interesting and get them involved in reading in a physical way. When they’re excited, it makes them want to learn more.” Prefontaine said the story-board event and the circus theme created a lot of excitement throughout the school. “Every single teacher is involved, and the students are really pumped to have something like this,” she said. “It’s exciting to see how reading can become an adventure for the kids.” TERRY PUGH | CLARK’S CROSSING GAZETTE

First snowfall brings new crop of collisions The first major snowfall of the season means busy times for paramedics. Troy Davies of MD Ambulance says the first snowfall of the year on Tuesday, October 23 resulted in several crashes on the highways around Saskatoon. Three of the collisions happened on Highway 7, and

also resulted in several vehicles sliding off roads. Davies said paramedics also anticipate an increase in slips and falls that occur outside. Proper footwear is imperative, especially for seniors. “Each year when we see a change in the weather we see an increase in crashes,” said Davies. “Drivers need to be re-

highways and creates black ice,” explained Davies. “We are asking drivers to take the extra time to get adjusted to driving on slippery streets and slow down.” MD Ambulance also reminded people to clean walkways in front of their homes and businesses.

Highway 16 collision claims a life One person is dead as a result of a two-vehicle collision on Highway 16 near Paynton. Lloydminster RCMP reported that at approximately 9:15 PM on October 16, 2012 a 1968 Chevrolet Impala was involved in a collision with a 2012 Dodge 5500 flat deck truck hauling a trailer.

The collision occurred on Highway 16 near Paynton. According to witnesses, the Impala was traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes of Highway #16 without headlights. The collision resulted in the death of the driver of the Impala. The driver of the Dodge was transported to Bat-

tleford Hospital where it is believed he has non life threatening injuries. No other passengers were involved. The highway at that location was shut down for a lengthy period of time as the RCMP Traffic Analyst completed his investigation. Maidstone EMS, Fire/ Rescue along with the Coroner attended and assisted with the investigation. At this time there is no other known contributing factors. More is expected as the Coroner continues his investigation. No names are being released at this time.

Agriculture back in its rightful place improvements in agricultural training – perhaps, the return of agriculture technical vocation training – to appropriately acknowledge the specialist nature of farming. In doing so, Wall is attempting to better establish agriculture as a true profession for not only just the producer, but also for hired farm operators who are not recognized in the way other heavy equipment operators are recognized. The paper is also chockfull of commitments to increased dollars on crop research and bio-tech, increased livestock production, the previously announced establishment of a Global Food Institution at the University of Saskatchewan, value-added processing and improved agriculture programs that are less ad hoc. (Wall proudly announced a 77 per cent take-up of this year’s crop insurance program.) But perhaps the most intriguing and boldest initiative in the entire paper is the goal of increasing agriculture production. The paper calls for a crop production increase of 10 million tonnes by 2020 and increase in agriculture and food exports to $15 bil-

While talking about his Saskatchewan Plan for Growth vision statement last week, Premier Brad Wall offered a reminder that we in this province best not forget: Agriculture cannot be forgotten. Oil has redefined the province’s economy in the past decade and now accounts for $10 billion in annual economic activity. Similarly, booming potash now accounts for $6.2 billion, annually. However, Wall emphasizes that agriculture in Saskatchewan accounts for a remarkable $8.4 billion in economic activity – sandwiched between the two nonrenewable resources. Yet our infatuation with oil and potash in recent times has left agriculture as the forgotten middle child. And Wall thinks that everyone – including himself – has been a little guilty of this neglect. But one of the neat things about Wall’s 66-page economic paper released last week is how much space was dedicated to rectifying this by re-establishing agriculture as one of the drivers of the Saskatchewan economy. The paper call for some

lion by 2020. Obviously, these goals are both lofty and risky. Anyone with a passing familiarity with commodity price fluctuation or agriculture’s dependency on unpredictable weather may wonder if they are all that wise. But some interesting numbers suggest these goals could be realistic. Take the most recent six-year period of 2006 to 2011 and consider how much higher yields compared with the previous six years of 2000 to 2005: canola, 32 per cent; peas, 12 per cent; oats, 27 per cent; barley, 15 per cent; and wheat, 20 per cent. Again, crop production can vary wildly year to year– depending on multipleyear weather patterns and how much farmers grow and fertilizer that can often depend on the prices. However, if one looks at the crop yield numbers from 1992 to 2011 – a healthy 20year span affording us more of a longer term view – one

sees an average crop production increase of 2.5 per cent annually. To meet Wall’s target, farmers will actually have to increase production by 3.7 per cent a year – about the average annual production increase for every crop in the past five years except oats and canola. It’s also worth noting, however, that Wall’s Sask. Party government announced in the March budget $10 million for additional wheat research – part of a record $20.4 million for crop research. The government has doubled the commitment to research since 2007 and Wall feels this investment will pay dividends in higher yielding crops. Finally, let us keep in perspective that these are just goals. The consequences of not meeting them are hardly dire. Nevertheless, in an economic paper mostly criticized for not have bold enough goals, Wall certainly has some rather bold ones for agriculture. And, after years of government neglect when it comes to the importance of agriculture, it’s nice to see agriculture retake its rightful place in Saskatchewan.

Reader Opinions Floral dance aims to raise funds for community centre The Floral Community Centre is the focal point for people living in the Floral area. The building and grounds were, at one time, a school for the area, and it still holds all the charm that it did when it was first built. It is entirely maintained by volunteers, and is used year round. Every fall, we have our annual Floral Moon Social and Dance where everyone is invited. This year the event is scheduled for Friday, November 2 at the Floral Community Centre. Tickets can be purchased by calling Mark at 374-8886 or Perry at 373-6561. There is a DJ, cash bar, midnight lunch, a 50-50 draw and various door prize draws. The dance is aimed at raising money to help maintain the hall. Right now our current project is to install new shingles on the roof of the building. Come and have a good time for a worthy cause. Perry Ulrich Floral Community Association


Former rural municipality Reeve needs to be replaced has ordered her reinstatement Our current reeve, Mel Henadministrator was not unjustly fired ry, who and back pay for her 14 months is running for re-elec As a former councillor for Division 6 in the RM of Corman Park, I feel I must express my point of view. I was on council when some discussions were had to move the RM in a new direction. In fact, my decision to run for council was based on the indecisiveness of the Planning Department in regards to my development, Parkside Estates. Once on council, it became apparent to me that council as a whole were not fully aware of the actual operations of the Planning and Administration departments. Planning and Administration were making many decisions, that should have been brought to council, without council’s knowledge. Until my appearance as a councillor the rest of the councillors had little idea what I, or anyone else, was put through in regards to planning procedures. That is why now, I must say the dismissal of the Administrator was discussed among some councillors at the same time as the dismissal of the head of Planning (this was long before the

harassment charges were filed). I felt, at the time, to let both heads go at the same time would be too disruptive for council and other staff. Some councillors agreed and that is why the Planning Department was the first to be changed. Now, to say that the Administrator was unjustly fired because of the harassment charge is just not right. Her time remaining as Administrator was up, long before these charges occurred. As stated, “Ms. Knutilla was terminated because she brought forward her complaint of harassment to her employer for investigation and resolution”. In my opinion – and the reason I voted to terminate her – had nothing to do with harassment charges. Her time was up, a new direction was needed. I do hope council will do the right thing and appeal this ruling and save the taxpayers a payout on an unjustified ruling. Bill Dyck Former Councillor RM of Corman Park

tion, has stated publicly that his priority is to bring about the demise of Corman Park and the creation of a new municipality west and north of the South Saskatchewan River. He feels he has no conflict of interest in this matter. I can only equate this argument to a Quebec separatist running to be the Prime Minister of Canada whose main objective is the dismantling of Canada, with all its financial and political ramifications. This is the same Reeve that has had numerous complaints of harassment lodged by various Corman Park employees, which has resulted in a high turnover of staff at the municipal office and a high number of legal bills. This is the same Reeve who instigated the removal of the head administrator, alleging incompetence and insubordination, after she dared to file a formal complaint of harassment against him. The Ministry of Labour Relations now has ruled there was no basis for her dismissal and

away from her job. Other employees will probably follow suit. As a result of Mel Henry’s actions, and those councillors that supported him, the municipality of Corman Park could be looking at hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal costs and settlements. This is the same Reeve who cancelled the independent panel looking at the inequity in electoral divisions where one division had one-tenth of the population of another division and who actively worked against those wanting electoral reform for a more equitable election process. And this is the same Reeve, who once losing that battle, set out on a campaign to dismantle Corman Park while still being the Reeve. Hopefully the voters of Corman Park will get out and vote on October 24 to give Mel Henry exactly what he deserves: the opportunity to look for a new job.

Accident sends Grandora area man to hospital Submitted by Sgt. Warren Gherasim Warman RCMP Detachment

On October 16 at 8:45 p.m. police were called to a collision between a tractor-trailer and a car on Highway 7 and Range Road 3072, west of Saskatoon.

Police attended and learned that the tractor-trailer unit was eastbound on Highway 16 when a large black cow had wandered on to the roadway. The truck was unable to avoid a collision and struck the cow, killing it. The truck’s radiator was damaged and the truck could not be driven and had to be towed. No charges were laid in the matter.


On October 15 police attended to a report of a break and enter to a business compound on Eldorado Street in Warman. A fence was cut and welding cable and a portable generator were stolen.

Upon police attendance smoke was observed coming from the business and the fire department attended. A fire was observed in the kitchen area of the restaurant, which was extinguished by the Warman Fire Department. There were no people in the business at the time of the fire, but people were evacuated from an attached hotel as a precautionary measure.

Damage to the business was extensive, but no dollar amount has yet been determined.


On the morning of October 18 police received two reports of vandalism to vehicles in Radisson. One incident occurred on Goodrich Street, the other on Alexander Street. Vehicles parked on those streets were spray painted some time over night. One of those vehicles is a school bus, which had several mirrors, windows and the headlights spray painted black. Police are seeking the help of the public in identifying the culprit(s).


On October 18 at 2:40 p.m. a man reported a Chevrolet Lumina stolen from an address on 2nd Avenue in Borden. The man advised that he had left the van parked at a job site with the keys still inside and that the vehicle contained all of his tools. When he returned later he discovered the van had been stolen. The man contacted police the following morning and advised he located his van parked at the rear of the Red Bull Restaurant in Radisson.

Neither men wished to pursue a police investigation. Alcohol was not involved and no one was injured.


On October 16 at 12:30 a.m.

police received a call from a rural residence near Osler. The occupants of the house reported that an intoxicated man showed up at their door asking that they call 9-1-1 because his friends needed help. Police attended and attempted to interview the man, but due to his extreme intoxication he was unable to communicate more information. Police arrested the man and lodged him into holding cells for his own safety. A search of the area revealed no other persons. The man was released the following day without charges.


On October 20 at 1:30 p.m. police were called to a residence in Osler for a complaint of a domestic dispute. When the police arrived they spoke with a female at that location who advised that she had been in an argument with her husband and that as a result he had pushed her and threatened to beat her. After she called the police the man left the residence prior to police attendance. The man was contacted by police and surrendered himself the following day. He was released on a charge of assault and is scheduled to appear in Saskatoon Provincial Court on Oct. 30. On October 20 at 6:30 p.m. police were called to a rural

residence near Maymont for a disturbance. The complainant advised police that she had attended at the residence of her former spouse to turn her children over for a visitation and that her boyfriend had attended with her. She advised that her former spouse had become angered and that there was a confrontation and that a shotgun had been displayed by her former spouse. Police attended that residence and the three children were taken by another relative until the matter could be resolved. Police continue to investigate the incident.

Langham Theatrical Company

Menu Ham, Turkey, :

Preparing for gala opening of ‘The Big 5 Oh... carry on’ Scripts are left at home and the prompters retired (for the most part) as the rehearsals for the Langham Theatrical Company’s production of THE BIG 5 0H carry on. Excitement among the cast and crew is escalating as the count-down is on to our Gala Opening Night performance on November 1st! The formal Gala Opening Night is a new feature for the Langham Theatrical Company. Attendance at this added performance is by special invitation only (i.e. dignitaries, representatives of the press, close family members, and all of our volunteers) where the cast will be available for a special photo session following the performance. The evening will begin with a large variety of appetizers, prepared by Creative Catering, wine and other non-alcoholic beverages. Guests will have the opportunity to socialize with each other while taking in the festive atmosphere, the decorated hall, the fabulous food, and most importantly the premiere performance of this year’s show. We are thrilled to be offering this event as it gives our drama team an opportunity to publicly thank all of our many volunteers who so faithfully come back year after year. They are a vital part of the 12104MF00




‘the leech’, is coming this can mean only one thing, dinner will be late! Now to make matters even worse daughter Julie, played by Nicole Bergman, arrives for dinner sporting a diamond on her left hand. Before George has had time to process this new information he learns that Julie’s fiancé Douglas, played by Will Peters, is of all things, a Republican! If living with a dysfunctional family isn’t enough to torment George, the secret he carries of the young student stalker at the college, played by Daria Boehr, definitely is. Now add to all of this the suspense of waiting to hear the results of his latest tests and you have the formula for disaster. The Big 5 – Oh is a great comedy, one of Brian Mitchell’s best. Speaking of ‘best’, the menu for this year’s dinner is truly the best. The Friday and Saturday dinners feature Chicken Cordon Bleu and Glazed Ham; while the Sunday dinner guests will be served the traditional Turkey Dinner with all of the trimmings, including cabbage rolls and the ever favourite beet rolls, all of which are prepared by Creative Catering. Tickets for the Big 5- Oh are available by calling Wendy at 283-4413. Check the classified for show dates and times or visit us at for more info.

overall success of the annual production. The play, The Big 5 – Oh, is set in the present time and takes place in the home of George and Marie Thomas. George Thomas, played by Darrell Novakovski, is fast approaching his 50th birthday. He is disturbed by that, worried about the illness of his pet and totally irritated by the amount of mail he’s received containing nursing home brochures, applications to join the AARP, and birthday cards reminding him that he is ‘over the hill’. Even his lawyer has sent him a card suggesting….. “Review your will George, seeing as you are approaching your Golden Years”. And if that isn’t enough to make him cranky his wife Marie, played by Elaine Nemanishen, insists on baking anything and everything. For 27 years he hasn’t been able to eat his own birthday cake, he begs her to please buy him a cake this year! And then there is Marie’s loyalty to the crazy next door neighbour Kathy, played by Sonia Zacharias, who insists on bringing the urn containing the ashes of her dead husband, Steve. Why must they always have that ‘nut case of a neighbour’ over to dinner? Still reeling with the dinner guest news George is further irritated when he is told that their son Eric, played by Stuart Cameron, is coming over. If Eric,

Premier spells out plan to boost growth, population Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall recentlly released the “Saskatchewan Plan for Growth”, setting a goal of 1.2 million people living in Saskatchewan by 2020, outlining his government’s roadmap for getting there, and emphasizing that improved quality of life in Saskatchewan is the purpose of growth. “Over the past five years, Saskatchewan people have seen the benefits of a growing province - more jobs, more opportunities and more revenue to deal with the challenges of growth,” Wall said. “Those benefits are why we seek growth - so we

can improve our health system and shorten surgical wait times, so we can do more for the most vulnerable people in our province, so we can balance the budget and pay down debt, so we can have more career opportunities for our young people. That’s why growth is important and why we want it to continue.” Wall said the six core activities the government can undertake to foster continued growth are: Investing in infrastructure; Developing a skilled workforce; Ensuring competitive-

ness; Increasing export trade; Advancing the province’s natural resource strengths through innovation; and Maintaining sound fiscal management. Wall said the government will invest at least $2.5 billion in infrastructure over the next three provincial budgets and also announced an immediate infrastructure commitment of $150 million from the province’s Growth and Financial Security Fund. “This is on top of the $50 million announced earlier this month for a

number of priority highway projects,” Wall said. “This further $150 million will be used to establish the new SaskBuilds Fund and will leverage hundreds of millions of dollars more through financing innovation like public-private partnerships.” SaskBuilds is a new government organization designed to drive innovation in infrastructure financing, design and delivery. “This new funding will be used to develop partnerships with other levels of government and the private sector,” Wall

said. “Our government will work with Saskatchewan municipalities to develop a municipal infrastructure program funded through SaskBuilds. When used as a base for P3s, this initial $150 million will leverage hundreds of millions more for SaskBuilds infrastructure projects”. Wall said the $150 million commitment to SaskBuilds will leave just over $500 million in the Growth and Financial Security Fund (GFSF) to manage any unforeseen events that affect the province’s finances. “The foundation of our

growth plan will continue to be sound financial management, balanced budgets and debt reduction,” Wall said. “Our government will work to maintain a target amount of $500 million in the GFSF, with any excess amount used to invest in infrastructure and reduce debt.” The Saskatchewan Plan for Growth sets a goal of reducing the debt by another $400 million by 2017, which means the debt will have been cut in half - from $6.8 billion to $3.4 billion - in the 10 years since the current government took office in 2007.



School division funding stats online Saskatchewan residents now have access to additional information on school division funding. The Government of Saskatchewan is providing visitors to the Ministry of Education website with easy-toaccess information on government operating grants and education property taxes. The education funding chart allows users to select one of the 28 school divisions in Saskatchewan, or a provincial total, from a dropdown menu. Government operating grants and education property tax are provided on a year-by-year basis for each school division from 2007-08 to 2012-13. Users can access the funding chart through the following link at As announced in the budget in March, the Government of Saskatchewan’s overall funding to school divisions in 2012-13 will be $1.73 billion. This includes $1.13 billion in government operating grants, which represents an increase of 62 per cent since 2007-08. While government grants have increased, education property tax has decreased by 18 per cent during that same period. This aligns with the government’s commitment in 2009 to provide the largest reduction in the education portion of property taxes in Saskatchewan history.

Heavy equipment is used to prepare the site for Black Iron Crossing commercial development on the west side of Centennial Drive

Steady growth lays groundwork for development By TERRY PUGH


hile dramatic changes are happening at Martensville’s two major commercial developments this fall, they have been a long time in the making, says Dillon Shewchuk, Economic Development Officer for the City of Martensville. “Both Black Iron Crossing and Sunset Ridge are experiencing rapid growth right now, with a lot of new construction by national chains, and that’s what we’ve been working toward for several years now,” said Shewchuk in an interview on Friday, October 19. “It might look like it’s an overnight success, but it’s actually the result of a lot of work and discussions and planning over several years.” Shewchuk said when he joined the staff at the City of Martensville in 2009, discussions with the owner of the property, North Prairie Developments, had been underway for some time. But the land itself was not necessarily earmarked for any particular type of business. “It was not zoned commercial at that time,” said Shewchuk. “The city at that time had not ruled out residential development on either of those properties.” But the tremendous growth rate of Martensville, and the entire region north of Saskatoon, in the last few

years has really sparked greater interest among national chains and created the right conditions for development of both parcels of land. “There is obviously a realization now that there are great opportunities in the vibrant urban centres outside of Saskatoon,” said Shewchuk. “In the past they were viewed primarily as bedroom com-

munities where everyone just goes to Saskatoon to work and shop. But now they recognize that Martensville is also a great place to set up a business. There’s a big market here and people want to shop in their own communities if they can get the same goods and services that are offered in a bigger centre.” He noted that the trend

for larger shopping complexes, particularly big box retailers, is more and more to the outskirts of bigger centres, which puts those developments on the doorsteps of places like Martensville. “For those retailers, it’s a logical place to establish a location,” he said. The majority of businesses setting up in the Sunset Ridge

development are those that cater to nearby residents, said Shewchuk, noting the multifamily housing subdivision just to the east of the development represents a big market for franchises like Dairy Queen and Second Cup. The Black Iron Crossing development in the traditional commercial heart of Martensville is aimed at larger chains

because of the high visibility and larger land base. In addition, the new Martensville Wellness Centre planned for the area will accommodate a wide range of health care service. He said the existing businesses also welcome the new development because they will see an increased number of customers in that downtown area.

Co-op to establish 8-pump gas bar at Black Iron Crossing Saskatoon Co-op will soon be a permanent fixture just off the highway in Martensville in the commercial development of Black Iron Crossing. Construction on the eightpump/eight-lane gas bar, propane area, 3,411 square foot convenience store and a 24hour four-pump/three-lane card lock will start in spring 2013. All services should open about nine months after the start of construction. North Prairie Developments’ two large retail developments in Martensville are starting to take shape as business and service sector growth continues in Martensville, Western Canada’s fastest growing city. So far, Black Iron Crossing will consist of Saskatoon co-op, a major national pharmacy chain and wellness centre, and Tim Horton’s. Black Iron Crossing consists of 20

acres located between Centennial Drive North and Highway 12. It combines large retail space, smaller commercial retail units, and space for single retail outlets. The Sunset Ridge development currently includes Dairy Queen and a Second Cup. Little Caesers Pizza should be starting construction on their new building soon. Sunset Ridge is an integrated six-acre highway and service commercial site located at the south end of Martensville, fronting the Centennial Drive South service road. “The location at Black Iron Crossing gives us more room to service our customers’ needs faster, it will provide better access in and out of the site, but another reason we chose the location was the high number of vehicles that travel this particular highway every day,” says Harley Mc-

Clughan, Saskatoon Co-op Op- set Ridge should follow soon. erations Manager. “We’ve had interest from oth Saskatoon Co-op has an er national fast food chains, a existing gas bar and conve- large hotel chain, a large fornience store located on leased property “The location at Black Iron at the corner of Centennial Drive and Crossing gives us more room Main Street, and to service our customers’ plans at this point are to remove the needs faster...” fuel tanks.

those considering a move to Martensville.” Dillon Shewchuk, City of Martensville Economic Development Manager says new residents say they like Martensville because of the people and the community-feel the City has. “We believe the businesses starting up here and the services being offered are resulting in higher residential growth,” says Shewchuk. “As residential growth increases, more commercial growth will follow – it’s a great situation to be in.” Gordon Rutten, Mayor of the City of Martensville, is pleased with the progress made to date by North Prairie Developments and ICR. “North Prairie has played, and will continue to play, a huge role in helping us achieve our economic development goals, and they are certainly a key to the long-term success of our City.”

Community Events SCARED SCRIPTLESS PLAYERS is in its 5th season and looking forward to a great production in March!! We have some important dates for our followers to take note of in the upcoming months. CALL FOR AUDITIONS: WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 7 @ 7:00 PM @ THE LEGENDS CENTRE

The Scared Scriptless Players are pleased to announce the name of their production for their 5th season is Moon Over Buffalo. The hilarious comedy Moon Over Buffalo centers on the characters George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950's. At the moment, they’re playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York with 5 actors. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter’s clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they’re actually performing, caused by Charlotte’s deaf old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George’s body! A perfect set up for a role in the aisle comedy ! Roles for 4 males, 4 females Ages range is 20’s to 70’s Rehearsals begin Thursday, January 3 @ 7:00 pm and will be held every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday from 7-10. PRODUCTION DATES: Fri, Sat, Sun matinee, March 15, 16 & 17, 2013

Credit Unions celebrate 75 years in Saskatchewan During International Year of Co-operatives, Saskatchewan credit unions are proud to celebrate 75 years of serving the people and communities of Saskatchewan. On August 2, 1937, the first Saskatchewan credit union, Regina Hebrew Savings and Credit Union, was incorporated. This was followed in the same year by the creation of Moose Jaw Credit Union, StarPhoenix Savings and Credit Union, Sherwood Credit Union, Regina Wheat Pool Employees’ Savings and Credit Union and Sacred Heart Parish Savings and Credit Union. Although the Regina Hebrew Savings and Credit Union

eventually closed its doors, the others went on to amalgamate and still exist under different names. “The spirit of ‘neighbours helping neighbours to help themselves’ has endured and grown beyond what these founders could have imagined,” Keith Nixon, interim CEO explains. “Credit unions are now among the most reliable and stable financial institutions in the world.” Today, Saskatchewan credit unions, which at one time were jokingly called ‘penny banks’, are modern, world class financial institutions with assets of over $17 billion, serving half a million mem-

bers. Their support of communities and families has helped raise Saskatchewan from the depths of the 30s depression to become a vibrant and growing province with an enviable economy. “75 years after the founding of the first credit union, we can look back at the vision of the men and women who pooled their meager funds to give even the poorest among them a chance at a brighter future,” says Nixon. “From them, we can learn that we don’t have to wait for others to come to our aid or define our future for us.” There are 60 Saskatchewan credit unions who to-

Martensville Aquatic Facility Concession Author Todd Devonshire speaking about his book Rink Burgers at Borden Library event October 21

Warman Junior girls Rhythmic Gymnastic group performing at Borden October 19


To celebrate Library Week, the Borden Lakeland Library had author Todd Devonshire out to showcase his first book – Rink Burgers. Emcee was Peter Thiessen who welcomed everyone and introduced Todd who spoke on his growing up in Big River, playing hockey and after the game the biggest reward was always having a rink burger. Todd read one of the paragraphs from his book about his first puck and losing his first tooth, and also spoke of how many years it has taken to get his first book published after many rejections, then finally going to the Library’s writer in residence and getting help. Todd told of his love of the game and a fan of Boston Bruins, but all of

his extended family are Montreal fans, and when he sent a book to Don Cherry, he got an autographed photo back and comments on his book. Leanne Sargent and Gayle Wensley from the Library board thanked Todd for his presentation and gave him a mug full of goodies. Door prizes were drawn and the lucky winners were Sadie Funk, Dot Buswell, Curtis Crabb, Brenda Roberts and Phyliss Oakenfold. Sadie Funk was presented with a $25 gift certificate from Lakeland Library for winning the Lakeland Regional Library Bingo Bonanza for reading books through the summer and filling in lines on a bingo card. Sadie had filled in two lines and got drawn at the Regional level. Mugs filled with goodies went to new library pa-

trons and winning these from a draw were Bentley Burletoff, Katelyn Worona and Carol Peeteetuce. The afghan donated by Isobel Tracksell went to Avery Fairbrother and the first Dessert of the Month decorated cake baked by Ty Sargent went to Rachel Sutherland. On the 21st of each month a name will be drawn for dessert of the month. ***** To celebrate Co-op week, the Borden Co-op had free goodies and coffee on October 17 and the Affinity Credit Union had free donuts, coffee and juice on October 18 along with door prizes. ***** The Borden Community Preservation Committee held an evening program on October 19 and the hall was full to watch the performances of

the City Centre Cloggers, Hafford Ukrainian Dancers and Warman Rhythmic Gymnastics and admittance was by donation. The City Centre Cloggers are a group of women who get together and learn to do the different steps involved in clogging performed to music, along with getting good exercise. There were two groups of Ukrainian dancers: the younger dancers and a group of older dancers, all in traditional dress. The Rhythmic Gymnastic girls performed routines to music using red balls, hoops and batons. Winning donated raffle prizes were Jean Hryniuk, Mary Thiessen, Julia Bezugly, Sydney Schmidt, Sadie Funk, Joyce Orchard, Jackie Miester, Ivan Youchezin, Florence Neufeld, Lorraine Olinyk. Af-

Urban municipalities favour Record retail sales in August province’s new ‘Plan for Growth’ The Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association (SUMA) is pleased by the partnership opportunities available in today’s release of the “Saskatchewan Plan for Growth.” “We are pleased to hear the Premier acknowledge the key role cities, towns and villages play to a growing Saskatchewan,” said SUMA President

Allan Earle. “The Saskatchewan Plan for Growth lays out the framework for future growth, and it’s a great strategy. We are excited to partner with the provincial government to determine the specifics of how we accomplish this plan. Earle said he was happy to see infrastructure targeted. “The Premier laid out in-

frastructure as a top priority, and that’s good news for urban governments. SUMA and our members will be active partners as we work toward long-term infrastructure funding. That funding will ensure we can build the cities, towns and villages that will attract the people, and build the economy it takes to reach the government’s goals by 2020.”

August was a record month for retail trade in Saskatchewan as sales increased for the seventh consecutive month on a month-over-month basis. Retail sales rose by 0.6 per cent in the province, the third highest percentage gain among the provinces and double the national increase of 0.3 per cent, to a record value of $1.48 billion. “Saskatchewan consumers are confident in the direction our economy is heading and that is reflected in today’s


numbers,” Economy Minister Bill Boyd said. “Retail sales are an important factor in economic growth and today’s report is definitely a positive trend we hope will continue.” On an annual basis, retail sales in the province were up 9.3 per cent, the highest growth rate in the nation and well ahead of the 2.7 per cent posted nationally. “Saskatchewan’s fortunate to have had steady job growth and increasing wages for some time now,” Boyd said. “Our

new growth plan will build on our strengths so that we can continue to be an economic leader among the provinces in the months and years to come.”

SaskPower, Red Cross form unique partnership for disaster response SaskPower and the Canadian Red Cross have signed an agreement that will see SaskPower employees trained and deployed during future provincial emergencies around the province. “SaskPower is pleased to partner with a highly respected charity like the Red Cross to encourage and support disaster response and recovery in Saskatchewan,” said SaskPower President and CEO Robert Watson. “Many of our employees are already involved with their communities, and this takes things a step further.” Under the agreement, SaskPower will fund Disaster Management Training for up to 20 of its employees each year. Those employees will then be called on during times of disaster response in the province. Volunteer opportunities will also be made available to SaskPower employees who do not wish to take the full Disaster Management Training program, but would like to volunteer from time to time. Finally, a Red Cross online donation web portal will be made available to employees to make donations at any time. “Red Cross is looking forward to training SaskPower volunteers to help Red Cross respond when disasters strike in Saskatchewan,” said Canadian Red Cross Provincial Director Cindy Fuchs. “It is with thanks to the generosity of supporters and volunteers like those at SaskPower that Red Cross is able to work closely with local authorities and agencies to provide emergency services such as food, shelter, clothing and longer term assistance to those affected.”

AQUARIUS A review of your finances reveals areas to improve on. Start with something small, Aquarius. A drama plays out at home and peace reigns once again. PISCES Taskmaster you’re not, Pisces, but taskmaster you must become if you want to get a project off your desk. Step up your efforts and learn to delegate. ARIES The financial cushion you created will give you peace of mind this week, Aries, when a purchase must be made. Savvy shopping is in order. TAURUS A last ditch effort to save a project works, and you’re on your way up the ladder. Good work, Taurus! An unusual gift from afar perks up the weekend activities.

Warman High School to host provincial soccer championships By TERRY PUGH


n what appears to be an annual tradition, Warman High School is gearing up to host the 2A Senior Boys provincial soccer championships this coming weekend. The tournament is slated for Friday, October 26 and Saturday, October 27, and features the top 8 senior boys soccer teams in the province. Warman High School will be one of those teams af-

ter advancing from regionals last weekend, as well as by virtue of hosting the event. It’s a great opportunity for the school and the community, according to WHS Principal Michael Collins. “This will actually be the fifth time we’ve hosted the 2A senior boys soccer championship,” said Collins. “There are two reasons for that. One is that we’ve got great facilities – including two of the best natural grass soccer pitches in the province at Percy Hoff and

Arthur Neufeld fields, and also because we’re willing to step up to the plate and take it on.” Collins said the school first hosted the tournament in 2004, and repeated as hosts in 2005. “Since then we’ve been shoulder-tapped several times,” he said. “It’s important to have this tournament, and this will be the third time we’ve agreed to take it on so that the athletes have the opportunity to play.” He said the provincial

high schools athletics association likes coming to Warman because the facilities and the community are able to accommodate the teams and spectators, with its close proximity to Saskatoon. “They know we’re willing to do it and we’ve done a really good job of hosting in the past,” said Collins. “That’s a credit to the community and we really appreciate the support we get from the Warman Parks and Rec-

Craig Folden, one of the coaches of the WHS senior boys soccer team, said the squad should be competitive in the tournament. “We’ve had a couple of mini-tournaments, with a few wins and a few losses and a tie, so overall I think we’ve done quite well,” said Folden. “It’s a senior boys team but we do have a couple of Grade 9 students on the team as well. They’ve been training hard and I think we should do all right.”

It’s a nice coincidence that the tournament takes place the same day (Saturday) that our town is celebrating the move up to city status. It’s great timing.”

Firefighters curling championships set for Borden, Langham By TERRY PUGH


orden may not have a curling rink, but that won’t stop the community from hosting a major provincial curling tournament next February. The Saskatchewan Firefighters Curling Association (SFFA) provincial curling championships will be held February 8-10 at the Langham Curling Rink, with the event hosted by the Borden Fire Department and volunteers in Borden and Langham. Ian Wainwright, a firefighter in Borden, is President of the Saskatchewan Firefighters Curling Association. He says this year’s edition of the provincial curling championships will be the 55th year the event has been held, and he’s excited to host the tournament. “We’ve never hosted it before, and we know there will be some challenges, but we’re confident we will make it a success and everyone will have a good time,”

said Wainwright. “Obviously one of our biggest challenges is the fact we don’t actually have a curling rink. But we’ve arranged to use the facilities at the Langham Curling Club, and they’ve been very helpful and supportive.” Wainwright said they are expecting at least a dozen teams from across the province. All the curlers are active or retired firefighters, and while most teams are made up of players from the same community, others include players from several communities. The winning foursome earns the privilege of going on to the national firefighters curling championships in March. Wainwright said a few years ago, the Borden firefighters curling team won the provincial championship and went to the national tournament. “It was a big event, with all the pomp and ceremony that goes with a major brier,” he said. “We had a 4-6 record at that tournament, so we didn’t do as

well as we thought we should have. We had a couple tough games against Quebec, and lost to PEI, which shouldn’t have happened, but in the end, it was a lot of fun and a great experience.” Wainwright said the provincial championships will be modeled on the national event, with a parade of athletes led by a bagpiper at the opening ceremonies. “We want to make up signs showing where the teams are from, and hopefully will have schoolkids carrying the signs in front of each team to show where they’re from,” he said. “We’re hoping for a lot of spectators to turn out and watch the games as well.” Wainwright said they need volunteer drivers to help shuttle the athletes to and from the rink and the Borden community hall on Saturday, February 9, where a banquet will be held for the participants. Dave Buckingham, Mayor of Borden and a member of the village fire depart-

ment, is one of the curlers on the local team. He said the community is looking forward to hosting the event, and said it will be a nice mix of hometown hospitality and competitive curling. “When you have an event like this in a major city like

get to know each other in a setting that is different from the usual training or emergency situations. “It’s important that we get a chance to meet and get to know people from other departments and other communities,” he said.

Saskatoon or Regina, it gets lost in the shuffle,” he said. “It loses its identity. So it’s nice for a small community to host something like this. It’s a big deal for us.” Buckingham said it’s also a good way for firefighters across the province to

Fitness Tips with Valerie Kirk Staying Motivated to Exercise

....Here are some expert tricks that will help you also to work through a weight loss plateau. (7) Be Happy....Find an activity that you like doing. Chances are, if you have an activity that you like to do you will continue to exercise. The “perfect” exercise is the one you’re happy doing, and you may not always be in the mood for a walk. Luckily, there are plenty of other options, indoors and out. So don’t suffer through a less-thanstimulating routine. Find an exercise you like......cycling, yoga, hiking, that rowing machine in the corner of the gym that no one ever uses.....and you’ll find yourself wanting to work out. (8) Watch the Rut......If you’ve found that perfect routine.....great! Just be sure not to make it as familiar as a friends reruns. What bores your mind also bores your body; you need variety to guarantee resuls like fat loss and muscle tone. If you do the same workout for weeks you’ll stop challenging your body and progress will quickly plateau. When you place stresses on the body the body adapts, and quickly. You should strive to have different workouts every 4 to 6 weeks. It will keep your workout fresh and exciting. • Discounts and coupons available with bookings • Training available in my gym or a gym of your choice • Personalized one-on-one training

Wolverines record first-ever playoff win Warman defeats Martensville 67-30 to advance in high school football post-season By TERRY PUGH


he Warman Wolverines punched their ticket to the second round of playoffs with a convincing 67-30 win over their arch-rivals, the Martensville Royals, last Saturday at Neufeld Field. The win was the firstever playoff victory for the Warman High School 9-man football squad, and it was all the sweeter because they earned it on home turf. But while the score was a little lopsided, it was anything but easy. The teams were deadlocked through most of the first half, trading punches back and forth. The scoreboard at the end of the first quarter was 10-10, and then 17-17 with a little over four minutes left in the half. But the Wolverines broke

it open in the dying minutes of the second quarter, as the offense exploded for three unanswered touchdowns while the defense kept the Royals bottled up. The home team enjoyed a 38-17 lead at half-time and just kept the momentum going through the second half as the Wolverines took advantage of the Royals’ shorthanded roster. Adam Leik accounted for most of the Wolverines’ points, with 5 touchdowns in the game. Spencer Ulrich scored a pair of majors, while Nyle Segovia and Tyler Hume contributed one touchdown each. Segovia also kicked the Wolverines’ first field goal on their opening drive. Martensville’s Spencer Finch was a one-man wrecking crew for the visitors, scoring two touchdowns that counted and another that was disallowed because of a penalty. Brayden Heck kicked a field goal for the Royals and also recovered a fumble for a defensive touchdown in the opposition’s end zone. Boden Young added the

Royals’ final touchdown of the game in the final minute of the fourth quarter. Wolverines’ coach Tyler Scheidt was cold and wet, but happy, after the final whistle was sounded in a game played in windy, rainy conditions under threatening clouds. “I thought our kids played fantastic,” said Scheidt. “Our offense was stellar. We’ve been waiting for that to happen and it finally did today. I think in the first half we scored on every possession, so that really shows what these kids are capable of. Adam Leik had a phenomenal game, and quarterback Logan Misskey really threw the ball well today. When all the guys are doing what they’re capable of, it makes a big difference.” Scheidt also had praise for the Wolverines’ defense, which apparently learned its lesson after being outplayed by the Royals a week earlier. “They made timely stops when they had to,” said Scheidt. “We made some adjustments after last week’s loss to Martensville. The big-

gest one was we wanted to play them a lot tougher and wear them down, because they have a lot of guys that play both ways and we wanted to tire them out by being a lot more physical.” The strategy seemed to work. Martensville Royals’ coach Lyle Evanisky said while he was proud of the determined way his team played, they were a bit overwhelmed by what they had to face. “Warman played a good game,” said Evanisky. “We just couldn’t seem to stop their offense. They ran the ball well, they threw the ball well. Logan Misskey is a phenomenal quarterback. He gets the ball out there where his receivers can catch it and they can score a lot of points.” Evanisky said in the end, their already-short bench kept getting shorter as the game went on.

Wolverines turn focus onto road trip to Foam Lake Continued from page 28

“It was kind of frustrating to be running out on the field as many times as I had to and help kids off the field,” he said. “But that’s a testament to how hard they were playing. They weren’t afraid of contact, and they played every down like it was their last. I’m very proud of the way they played.” For the graduating players on the Royals’ roster, it was their last game in the blue and white uniform. But Evanisky said he’s confident a lot of them will go on to play the game at a higher level after they finish high school. “We’ve got some phenomenal athletes,” he said. Meanwhile, the Wolverines post-season focus now shifts to this coming Saturday, when they travel to Foam Lake for the second round of playoffs. “We don’t know a lot about Foam Lake,” admitted the Wolverines’ coach. “I’ve seen a little bit of film, but not much. I do know they have a great program in that town, and their team is consistently finishes in first or second place, so we’ll have our work cut out for us.” But Scheidt is confident this first playoff win on home turf will keep his troops fired up. “I think if we play the way we did today we’ve got a very good chance of coming out on top,” he said. “We just need to make things happen.”

Overhauled Riders in playoffs: Anything can happen A smile flashed across Brendan Taman’s face at the mention of the term “playoffs”. There’s another word the Saskatchewan Roughriders General Manager actually despises, but we’ll get to that later. The Roughriders entered this past weekend teetering on the edge of a playoff berth needing either a home win over Montreal Saturday afternoon or a Hamilton TigerCats loss at Calgary Saturday night. Well one of those two things happened. The Riders dropped a 34-28 decision to the Alouettes at Mosaic Stadium as a fourth quarter rally fell short. However, the Ticats muffed their game to the Stampeders later that evening and the Riders were able to clinch without even breaking a sweat. Backing into the playoffs? Absolutely. Apologizing

for it? Not on your life. “I hate doing this because I never want to look back to last year but going from where we were a year ago to where we are now, it’s a big credit for us,” Taman said about heading back to the CFL post-season after a one-year absence in 2011, the club’s 5-13 season. “We’ve improved this team, I think there’s no doubt about that but we need to play better. We’re happy to be where we’re at, but we need to be better.” No guff. The Riders have lost back-to-back games, to

Edmonton and Montreal, here in the stretch drive and their record stands at 8-8 with two games left. The chance at a home playoff game has been blown and now the only question which remains is: are they going on the road in the West Division in the playoffs or crossing over into the East Division? Really, if you ask these Riders, it doesn’t matter. They’re in the playoffs with a rookie head coach and a roster which was completely overhauled in the off-season by Taman, his first season truly in charge of the Green

& White. They rebuilt, without using the term “rebuild”. Why? “I hate that word,” Taman grimaced. “I don’t know if there’s another word to use. I’d use it if there was but I hate that word because that’s sort of a built-in excuse to lose. “We were never gonna do that but we knew we were gonna change the team a lot. I think other teams in the past have done it, even Edmonton did very well using ‘that word’ last year. The Riders have two games left; at home this week to Toronto and then the last game of the regular season at the B.C. Lions. Who knows how things will play out? They’re looking at 10-8, 9-9 or 8-10 but they all constitute a huge leap from last year under first year coach Corey Chamblin. The key is that they’ve

clinched a playoff spot with still two games remaining, and they can now start making plans for the playoffs. As for the makeover – the “rebuild” – things went according to plan despite a lot of silent hand-wringing behind closed doors. Especially during a five-game losing streak mid-season. “I think in this league with eight teams, you can do it pretty quick,” Taman explained. “It’s not easy, but it’s a credit to the coaches and the players to have won enough games.” The current two-game slide is nothing to be overlooked but by no means is it an omen for the future. In 2010 the Riders lost four in row in October before winning game 18 and rolling into the Grey Cup in Edmonton. Hold on tight. This is where it gets fun.




Rebels big plays spell big trouble for Spartans Panthers look back on improvements made during 2012 By HILARY KLASSEN

The Delisle Rebels used a series of big plays to defeat the Meadow Lake Spartans 56-28 on Saturday in the opening round of provincial high school football playoffs. Rebels Coach Ken Byers remembers a previous matchup between the two teams. “We played Meadow Lake in 2007. We beat them in the regular season by a lot of points, like 35-40 points, and then they came and beat us in the first round of the playoffs 2827 in this massive upset in 2007. For some odd reason our players wanted to watch that game film.” When Saturday’s game was suddenly tied at 14, and when the Spartans went up 21-14, Byers added, “it was like oh jeez...2007 all over again and so it was a little scary on the sidelines. But the thing is these kids have played a long season and they know there’s four quarters in the game so they know it’s no big deal. Nobody remembers the score at half time, they just remember the end score.” Byers was right and the Spartans’ lead didn’t last long. The Rebels answered back with three touchdowns before the half and never looked back. Byers was pleased with Kyle Richardson’s game, especially since the field was wet at the start of the game and they weren’t sure how often they would go to the air. “So offensively, he played really well,” added Byers. The coach also mentioned his team’s defensive game wasn’t up to their standard and “they’ll look forward to viewing game film to see what to fix”.



The Hague Panthers’ football season came to an end last weekend. The Panthers came out on the wrong end of an 87-8 score in 1A 6-man high school football playoff action last Saturday, October 20, losing to perennial powerhouse LCBI in Outlook. But even though they won’t be going any further into the playoffs, the fact that they made it as far as they did was a positive thing for the team, the school, and the community, according to Panthers head coach Clay Kirby, who is also principal of Hague High School. The Panthers had earlier secured a playoff spot by defeating Davidson 68-12 in their last regular season game on Friday, October 12. Kirby said one of the highlights for the team this year was the marked improvement in blocking by players. “Adam Wagner and Kevin Loewen really are the leaders in that department,” said Kirby. He added that touchdowns in the game against Davidson were scored by Mark Loewen, Adam Thiessen, Justin Fehr and Luke Guenter. The tackle leaders were Brent Fehr and Mark Loewen. “As we wrap up league play, I feel good about how hard the boys work, and how positive they are,” said Kirby. “We won more games than we lost. It’s been a lot of fun.”

Rebels kicker Taylor Barber sends another one through the uprights in Delisle’s 56-28 playoff victory over the Meadow Lake Spartans In an unusual move, Kolton McKenzie lined up on special teams and, according to Byers, turned in a solid performance with several tackles. Byers added that Jeff Shirley had a good running game and Taylor Barber was on his kicking game. Taylor also intercepted a Spartans pass which led to a touchdown. Tanner “Bucket” Olson was successful in both the passing and running game. Now in Grade 12, the nickname “Bucket” has stuck with

Olson since Grade 10 when he first donned an older helmet with an unusual shape. Late in the game, Ryan Tetland finished off the Rebels attack, scampering 89-yards for a touchdown. It was the last in a string of big plays leading to a final score of 56 – 28 for the Rebels. The Rebels next playoff action comes against the Melville Cobras on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. in Delisle. Melville won last week 18-0 over Yorkton’s Sacred Heart. “It’s interesting for me,”


Byers explained. “This is the tenth anniversary of our first provincial championship in 2002 and Melville is who we beat 14-13 in the provincial final that year. This is first time we’ve played them in 10 years so hopefully that can be a good omen.” In addition to winning the contest against Meadow Lake, Delisle also came out wearing a little pink, a nod to their professional counterparts who also wore pink on the weekend to promote breast cancer research and awareness.

Blades on hold as they wait to get going

After three steps forward, the Saskatoon Blades took two steps back…and have several days to stew about it! While it seemed as though the Bridge City Bunch had escaped the early-season struggles by winning three consecutive games, a pair of onegoal losses last weekend have mired them in an Eastern Conference standings spot that is outside of the top eight teams that would qualify for the playoffs. That hole could become deeper to climb out of as the Blades are in the midst of nine consecutive non-game days! “I think (we) just get back to the basics,” said Saskatoon associate coach Dave Struch. “It might be a good break for us to get our fitness back up, get back to the basics of our systems and get everybody comfortable with where we want to go and have a good start after the break.” The Blades scored just three goals in losses to Swift Current and Everett on back-to-back nights…two of the goals coming on the power play from defenceman Darren Dietz. “We’ll be pretty busy through the nine days here,” explained the 19-year-old Medicine Hat product. “It gives us a good opportunity to really tighten up as a group and spend a lot of time together and focus on the small things at practice. I’m really looking forward to it.” One positive going into the

break is the Bridge City Bunch’s penalty killing with 22 consecutive kills dating back to a Kootenay power play goal two Fridays ago.



Voice of the Blades on 92.9 The Bull

But, the nagging question is returning…when is it time to push the “panic button” on this MasterCard Memorial Cup-hosting season. It was one thing to say it was early in the season when the record was 2-7-0…and it might still be that way at 5-9-0. However, at what point does the answer remain, “It’s early in the season.” if the Saskatoon Blades continue to operate at less than .500 for the season! ***** BLADES PLAYER-OF-THEWEEK – Thanks to the 1-2-0 week, the pickings were slim with 19-year-old Czech Matej Stransky copping this writer’s award. The Dallas draft pick from 2011 scored an overtime winning goal last Wednesday against Tri-Cities and added two assists for three points in three games and was +1. Overall, the winger has four goals and 11 points in 14 games. ***** ROSTER CHANGES – For the second straight week, G-M and head coach Lorne Molleken pulled the trigger on a trade…


sending former first round Bantam draft pick Brent Benson to Swift Current for 6’5” defenceman Graeme Craig. Both are 19-year-old veterans. The Blades also re-assigned 16-year-old defenceman Nelson Nogier to the Saskatoon Contacts of the Saskatchewan Midget AAA League. Following is the Saskatoon roster as of Monday afternoon… Goalies – Andrey Makarov (93), Alex Moodie (95); Defence – Matt Pufahl (93), Kyle Schmidt (93), Duncan Siemens (93), Graeme Craig (93); Brett Lernout (95), Darren Dietz (93), Dalton Thrower (93); Forwards – Shane McColgan (93), Adam Kambeitz (92), Matej Stransky (93), Matt Revel (96), Nick Zajac (95), Travis McEvoy (94), Brenden Walker (92), Josh Nicholls (92), Logan Harland (95), Lukas Sutter (93), Brett Stovin (94), Ryan Graham (96), Jessey Astles (93); ***** UPCOMING GAMES – Strange only begins to describe the Bridge City Bunch’s schedule… or lack of it. The Blades are in the midst of nine days without game action since last Saturday’s loss to Everett. Saskatoon’s next contest is a visit to Regina to play the Pats on Tuesday. The broadcast is on CKBL-FM (92-9, THE BULL) begins at 6:30 with a half-hour of pre-game talk before play-by-play at 7 p.m. Regina provides the next Credit Union Centre opposition…not until Friday, November 9.
