And We Shall Remember Them

Lowering the legal drinking age: Bottle half full or half empty? It’s a pretty safe bet that a record number of text messages were being sent through the hallways of high schools across Saskatchewan earlier this week when it was announced that the province’s legal drinking age may be lowered from 19 to 18. Proponents of the idea note that 18 is the legal age at which voters can begin voting so it should also be the age at which consumers may begin consuming. Part of me agrees with that train of thought. If we trust an 18-yearold with a ballot then we should trust them with a bottle. But, I tend to agree with the opponents. No one can get hurt if a piece of paper gets misused at the ballot box. The same can’t be said for a bottle of booze. Tragic things can and do happen far too often. And it usually involves innocent people at the wrong end of the equation. The other mainstream argument for a lower drinking age is that 18-year-olds are already drinking so all the legislation will do

is make it a legal activity. In other words, they won’t have to put cash into the hand and trust that creepy guy having a smoke outside the offsale door to pull a case of Pilsner for them. Instead, they can just stroll in and buy it for themselves. Opponents cite study after medical study claiming alcohol inhibits the cognitive development of humans and that the brain is not fully mature until a person has reached their early 20s. (I’d argue that one, though, as we seem to have a handful of people of all ages on Parliament Hill that seem extremely immature at times). Then there’s the whole issue of booze and schools. Now, I freely admit that my friends and I burned plenty of 45-cent a litre fuel going back and forth between our hometown of North Battleford to Lloydminster on Friday afternoons to pick up a “few” cases of those coveted cans of beer that were unavailable in Saskatchewan. Were we prepared for it? Yes, we always had an 18-year-old with us for good measure. Were we responsible? Yes, we al-

ways shared with friends! But seriously, the odd Friday beer run started at 3:30 and was a way of life back then. I’d like to think that we all turned out to be intelligent, productive and upstanding members of society. We learned some of our lessons the hard way but, in the end, I think it was those lessons that made us the responsible people we are today. Aside from all the bush parties I cannot recall anyone in my school coming to school wasted or even slightly hungover. The punishment was too extreme if that were to happen. Since we were not coddled as teenagers, we had to accept our lumps. We knew the rules – both written and unwritten – and paid dearly when we wound up on the wrong side of them. From the milder

punishment of having our car keys taken away for the night to the more harsh – watching through the tears as the hearse pulled away – we always learned a lesson about being responsible with alcohol. But, as we all know, times have changed and many young people (and sometimes even the parents) now live in the age of entitlement – the faux belief of being entitled to everything at the low, low price of nothing. It’s always someone else’s fault something bad happened. The mirror is just a handy fixture for doing makeup and fixing hair. You get my drift. I’m guessing my thoughts are not much different than many of yours. As a citizen and a parent, I’m torn on this issue. On one hand, I’d like to think all 18-year-olds are trustworthy and responsible. But there are a select few that are not. Having “been there, done and seen that” I know from experience as a former auxiliary RCMP member that alcohol can be a source of terrible problems regardless of age.

If a person who is not yet 19 has a problem with alcohol, is having a law in place preventing them from buying or consuming really going to curb or reduce the dependence on it? I think we as a society know the answer to that one. No matter what the age is set at, enforcement and penalties need to be addressed. Those penalties need to be harsh and act as a major deterrent to underage drinking, unlawful selling and supply, and any alcohol-related offenses such as drinking and driving or having an open container in a vehicle. Get rid of the slap on the wrist fines and put in place some hefty “make them cringe at the thought of getting caught” penalties and I’m good with 18 as a legal age at which to purchase and consume alcohol. Dropping the legal drinking age down to 18 or maintaining the status quo is not an easy decision and, without a doubt, will cause an uproar from supporters on each side of the debate.

DOUBLE DUTY

Martensville Fire Department donates gear to needy countries By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

F

ighting fires is serious business. If you’re going into a dangerous situation, you need the right kind of equipment. But in many poor countries around the world, firefighters have to face raging infernos with next to nothing in the way of protective gear. The Martensville Fire Department is doing its part to help alleviate that situation. Along with their colleagues in the Dalmeny Fire Department, Martensville firefighters are donating some of their used “turnout gear” – consisting of jackets, pants, helmets and boots to a BCbased charitable organization known as “Firefighters Without Borders.” The donation of used firefighting equipment will go to impoverished nations. Norm Hydamacka, a captain with the Martensville Fire Department, said the equipment will be sent to Vancouver the second week of November, and from there volunteers with Firefighters Without Borders will decide which overseas location it will be shipped to. “Many of these countries basically have nothing,” explained Hydamacka in an interview at the Martensville Fire Hall on Friday, November 2. “This is vital equipment that they really need.” Hydamacka said the donation is made up of gear that no longer meets safety requirements for Canadian firefighters. “Normally, this type of gear is either cut up and sent to the landfill or it is burnt or otherwise destroyed,” said Hydamacka. “It’s not something that we can use, because it’s either too old or it has been burnt or otherwise isn’t up to safety standards. We can’t use this gear ourselves, and we can’t donate it to another smaller fire department in Saskatchewan or Canada, because there are liability issues.” Hydamacka said that even though the equipment doesn’t meet

safety standards for this country, the donations have to be seen in a broader context. “The countries that will receive these donations have virtually nothing, and they can’t afford to purchase newer, expensive gear,” he said. “If you have nothing, then any type of protective gear is needed. We’d like to see them get the same level of protection that firefighters here in Canada have, but we also have to realize that may not be realistic, at least in the short term.” Hydamacka said some of the gear dates back as far as the 1980s, but most of it is 1990s vintage. The helmets were donated by the Dalmeny Fire Department, while the jackets, pants and boots have all seen many years of use by Martensville firefighters. Hydamacka, who joined the Martensville Fire Department 12 years ago, was promoted to Captain last January. As part of an internal restructuring in the department, captains were given certain areas of responsibility – a decision aimed at lightening the administrative duties of the Fire Chief and Deputy Chief “My responsibilities include keeping accounts on the protective clothing, and maintenance of the fire hall and its contents,” said Hydamacka. “So when I started organizing and inspecting the gear, I realized there was a lot of stuff that we couldn’t use anymore. Some of the gear had already lived its life cycle, or it was burnt or zippers were torn or it was flawed in some way. It just didn’t pass our safety standards, so we had to pull it from service. That clothing was put into a closet. At one of our officers’ meetings, we were discussing what to do with the gear, and someone suggested we donate it to Firefighters Without Borders. I didn’t know much about the group, so I did some research and contacted them and that’s how we arranged for this shipment.” Hydamacka said while the organization has been active in BC and Alberta, he is not aware of any oth-

Captain Norm Hydamacka of the Martensville Fire Department is coordinating the donation of used firefighting equipment from Martensville and Dalmeny to Firefighters Without Borders, a charitable organization based in Vancouver. The gear will be sent to firefighters in developing countries. er donation from a Saskatchewan fire department. “We have been talking to the Watson Fire Department about coordinating future donations,” he noted. “And I’ve put the word out through the North Corman Park Fire Chiefs Association. That’s how we received the helmets from Dalmeny.” Hydamacka said the goal is to organize annual shipments – not just from the local department but province-wide - to the charitable organization. He noted that Firefighters With-

out Borders will take all kinds of equipment – not just clothing. “Anything from fire engines to axes to computers,” he said. “If it���s in a fire hall. They can use it.” He said the process of sorting through the equipment has helped the Martensville Fire Department organize its assets, and allows them to plan for future expenditures. “The average life span for a suit of protective clothing is about 10 years,” he said. “There are excep-

tions, but if you know when gear is nearing the end of its useful life, then you can plan for money needed to replace that gear in your budget that you take to city council.” Hydamacka said over the last decade, the department has tripled the number of calls it responds to annually. “It’s very rare that a day goes by when there’s not two or three calls,” he confirmed. “Most of them are medical calls. There are a lot of collisions on Highway 12.”

Watershed Association tackles flooding issue By TERRY PUGH

he wheels are in motion to overcome flooding problems in several municipalities north of Saskatoon, thanks to the formal establishment of the Opimihaw Creek Watershed Association (OCWA). On Friday, November 2, Ken Cheveldayoff, the Minister responsible for the Saskatchewan Water Security Agency announced the formation of the OCWA, and delivered an initial payment as part of a $1 million commitment to tackle the flood woes of the region. The initial payment of $15,000 was

given to the RM of Corman Park to help fund an engineering study on drainage options for the area. The payment was made at a news conference at the RM of Corman Park office on Friday, November 2. Cheveldayoff said the record amount of precipitation over the last several years has created “flooding challenges” for the area, one of the fastest-growing regions of the province. “Our government is pleased to be able to help these municipalities as they work to ensure development of regional drainage infrastructure to protect peoples’ homes and livelihoods,” said Cheveldayoff.

FUNDING WELCOME The OCWA is made up of the Rural Municipality of Corman Park and surrounding communities of Warman, Dalmeny, Osler and Martensville. Representatives of the urban communities, as well as Corman Park Reeve Judy Harwood, attended the news conference. Harwood said she’s relieved the money is starting to come in to the partnership’s bank account.

Asquith Fire Department acquires extrication equipment By TERRY PUGH

T

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

he Asquith Fire Department now has the tools it needs to save lives. A new set of extrication equipment was delivered to the Asquith Fire Hall in late October, and training on how to use the specialized tools will take place over the coming winter. “This equipment is very valuable,” said Blaine Ganchar with the Asquith Fire Department. “Up till now we haven’t had the proper tools to be able to cut through these new vehicles and safely get the victims out. We were making do with what we had, but if it was something we couldn’t handle, we had to call on the Delisle Fire Department or Langham Fire Department.” And adding another 30 minutes or so the rescue time while waiting for help to arrive, especially in inclement weather and in cases involving very severe injuries, often spelled the difference between life and death. “It wasn’t a great situation,” said Ganchar. “We really needed to get the proper equipment, and so we began fundraising in earnest, and we managed to raise 50 per cent of the cost ourselves and the province stepped in and contributed the rest.” The total cost of the equipment, which includes cutters, spreaders and hydraulic singlecylinder rams, is over $27,000. Ganchar said the Asquith Fire Department began fundraising last year and also applied for a grant from a federal government program. He said a single fundraiser, the most successful ever for the department, generated half the funds needed to

purchase the equipment. The department was relying on the proceeds from the federal grant to cover the remainder. “We had our application approved, and then all of a sudden the federal government cut the funding for the program,” said Ganchar. “It was quite a blow. But fortunately for us, the provincial Fire Commissioner’s office stepped in and went to bat for us, and the province eventually came up with the rest of the funds we needed.” He said the new extrication cutters are made specifically to slice through the new metal structures of modern vehicles. “They use a different type of

steel now than you find in older models,” said Ganchar. “The steel is much harder. These new jaws have a cutting strength over 200,000 pounds. The kit itself comes with a cutter, spreader, hoses and hydraulic pump. We have to go through many hours of training in order to use them safely, because with that much force the potential is there to injure the accident victim or the rescuer.” He said the tools are identical to those used by the Delisle Fire Department. “They’re interchangeable,” he said. “That will allow us to coordinate the use of the tools if we need to go with them somewhere.”

Crops for Community raises funds for Delisle recreation projects By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

A

200-acre parcel of land on the eastern edge of Delisle will be used to generate funds for community recreation projects over the next four years, thanks to a newly-formed partnership between Delisle residents, area farmers and Agrium Vanscoy potash operations (VPO), a nearby potash mine. The initiative, known as Delisle Crops for Community, is an innovative way of raising much-needed money for improvements to the community, says Curt Gessell, a member of the Delisle Town Council who farms in the area. “It’s something that’s been talked about for a number of years,” said Gessell in an interview last week. “We’re aware of other communities that have been growing crops and putting the proceeds toward worthwhile projects in their area, and we felt it was a good idea.” Gessell said the town recently purchased the 200-acre parcel of land on the eastern edge of Delisle as part of its long-term future growth plan. Noting that it could take many years for residential and commercial sites to actually get started, he said it makes economic sense in the meantime to continue to farm the land until conditions are right for development. “The intent is to use the land for future development as the town expands,” he said. “However, we felt it could generate some much-needed income in the next four years, and that income could be used to fund worthwhile recreation projects.” A committee made up of five volunteers, most of whom are experienced farmers, is responsible for the management and production decisions regarding the land. “The town has given this committee permission to farm it with the understanding that all profits will be donated back to the town for infrastructure and recreation,” Gessell explained. “It’s a way of putting the land to good use as a revenue generator.” The first crop on the Crops for Community land is expected to be seeded in the spring of 2013. Gessell said the Delisle Town Council approved the project last August after meeting with representatives of the Crops for Community group. The land is being provided rent-free for the next four years on the understanding that the revenue from the crops raised on the land will be returned to the community. Gessell said the project re-

lies heavily on the contributions of volunteers, but noted the single biggest contribution is coming from the Agrium VPO mine located midway between Delisle and Vanscoy. He said two committee members met with representatives from the Agrium potash operation and invited the company to participate by supplying inputs. The company confirmed on October 10 that it would cover input costs including seed, fertilizer, crop protection products for the next four years. “We’re very excited about getting this support,” said Gessell. “The company is a strong contributor to our town and surrounding area and we really appreciate this.” “It’s a great project,” said Chad Wawryk, an electrical designer at Agrium VPO and an advocate for the initiative. “It fits nicely with a companywide program called Growing Together that’s been in place for a while now.” Wawryk said Growing Together is a “cultural initiative” that stresses the company’s “commitment to building healthy partnerships with our stakeholders, actively supporting the communities in which Agrium does business and setting standards for environmental commitment. It also describes our dedication to the growth of our employees and achieving common goals with our customers and suppliers.” He said after the initial meeting with representatives from the Delisle Crops for Community group, the VPO Growing Together Steering Committee felt the company wanted to become the “title sponsor” for the program. “Agrium’s senior management was approached and presented with the opportunity of becoming the main donation provider for all of the inputs required by the program for the four-year term,” said Wawryk. “Agrium senior management and the VPO Growing Together Steering Committee decided that this initiative is a great fit with the Growing Together Program, and has decided to be a major sponsor for the four-year term of the project.” The company said the project will be a great learning tool for the local schools in the area, providing students with a chance to visit the growing site and gain knowledge and hands-on experience. It will also showcase the practical application of Agrium’s inputs in increasing production of many different crops. “It’s a very valuable initiative,” concluded Wawryk. “It helps the community, and we’re proud to be able to contribute.”

Watershed association receives funds CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3

“It’s absolutely a positive step forward,” said Harwood in an interview following the news conference. “We’ve gone from the committee stage to the establishment of a formal organization, with actual funds to complete the project. The municipalities have been working for several months to come up with a good solution, and a lot of engineering work has already been done, but it’s a long way from being complete.” She said the first installment of the money from the province will help pay for the engineering work. She noted that unfortunately, a major LIDAR air photo survey of the area designed to map out elevations and drainage patterns was not completed prior to the recent snowfall. “That means this work is unlikely to be completed before spring,” she said. “With the snow cover it’s not possible to get the accurate elevations required. “It’s a bit frustrating because people have been wait-

Tax break granted to German Cultural Centre By HILARY KLASSEN

hilaryklassen@gmail.com

The fire that consumed the German Canadian Club Concordia building in late 2009 caused tremendous loss. But as the club’s website notes, out of the ashes came renewal and “the skies opened up.” When a new facility was fully completed earlier this year, the club’s tax assessment also went skyward, increasing by a whopping 400%. The German Cultural Centre (GCC), as it is now known, operates as a non-profit organization under provincial legislation. However, the value of its building, located in the RM of Corman Park south of Sasaktoon, is assessed by the Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA) under a commercial designation under the RM’s zoning. As a result of reassessment on the new building, the organization’s tax levy increased to $31,250.58 from $8,965.43 in the previous year. In October the club asked the RM for a reduction of the levy to a more manageable amount. The RM has no policy for such exemptions and at their regular meeting on Nov. 5, the Council was concerned about setting a precedent. But the Municipalities Act does allow for some provisions with respect to this request. Af-

ter consideration and tossing around various scenarios, the council agreed to offer the GCC a 75% abatement for the next five years. Reeve Judy Harwood said: “They just got Christmas early.” Redress for former Councillor Lynne Samson When former Corman Park Councillor Lynne Samson was removed from her police commission post by the former reeve of Corman Park Mel Henry - a move ratified after the fact by the RM council - she felt an injustice had been done. A recent ruling by a provincial agency indicates that the council was wrong in unilaterally removing her, characterizing the move as a retaliatory action in response to a complaint of workplace harassment. As a result of a Notice of Contravention from the Saskatchewan Ministry of Labour Relations, the RM Council has on Nov. 5 acknowledged that “the Council resolution on September 12, 2011 removing Lynne Samson from the Corman Park Police Commission should not have been made.” The RM will issue a cheque

into account the potential impact on neighbouring communities. “We’re all in this together,” she said. “We have to work as a team.” She said it’s also important for communities and landowners to be proactive in the coming months. “Right now the amount of snow cover we have is not unusual,” she said. “But if, over the winter months, we receive more than normal, then we need to get the word out to landowners that they need to take steps to protect their homes and property from flooding as well.” Harwood said the new association will address drainage issues related to water retention as well as flooding. “In future years, we could very well be in a drought situation,” she noted. “These cycles of wet and dry weather conditions are recurring, so there could be years where we are desperate for water, and we need to incorporate that scenario into whatever plan is put in place.” She said the OCWA partnership will make a difference in the long run. “I am confident that by working together through the

newly-created watershed association, a regional drainage plan will provide long-term flood protection as our communities deal with the pressures of residential, industrial and commercial development,” Harwood said.

PROVINCIAL SHARE The Water Security Agency will cover 75 per cent of the costs, up to $1 million, for the Opimihaw Creek Watershed Association to develop a master drainage plan. This includes designing the regional drainage system and constructing water conveyance channels. The municipalities will share the remaining 25 per cent of the overall cost, with the funding from each municipality determined by a costsharing formula. The Water Security Agency was created to lead implementation of the 25 Year Saskatchewan Water Security Plan. It will improve water management capacity and service to individuals, businesses and communities across Saskatchewan.

Urban and rural differ, poll shows

C O M M E N T A R Y

Unwelcome Guest and Unwanted Problem

Those that keep saying we are all the same in Saskatchewan conveniently ignore the reality that rural and urban folks do think differently. It’s a thought worth keeping in mind the next time you hear federal Conservative politicians tell you the province should keep split urban/ rural seats – a concept politically advantageous to Conservatives these days but not necessarily the best way to represent either rural or urban voters. But don’t take my word for it – just look at any polling results. We are again reminded of this by the recent work by the University of Saskatchewan Social Sciences Research Laboratories that polled Saskatchewan people for the Taking the Pulse series. The massive survey of 1,750 people taken last March for the Saskatoon StarPhoenix, Regina Leader-Post and CBC Saskatchewan may very well be the most extensive polling of the province in recent memory. The survey with an accuracy of plus or minus 2.34 per cent 19 times out of 20 covered every area from abortion to the economy to immigration to First Nations to gay marriages. From such a huge undertaking one can expect many themes to emerge. But perhaps the most intriguing theme was that rural and urban people don’t often view things the same way. For example, in the section on crime and public safety, rural residents were more likely to think crime has increased (39 per cent) than urban residents (32 per cent) and rural residents were less likely to think crime has decreased (11 per cent) compared with urban folks (17 per cent). The reality is that crime has been decreasing everywhere with the possible exception of large urban centres like Regina and Saskatoon that remain in the top three in the nation in most crime reporting statistics. There is no doubt that rural Saskatchewan is safer, yet the residents don’t necessarily feel crime is going down. Similarly, rural folks are less satisfied with policing

Imagine for a moment that you’re sitting on your couch one Wednesday evening watching T.V. and the doorbell rings. Who could it be? Moments later you open the door and a stranger in a suit says “Hello, I’m from the government and I’m here to collect for the pension shortfall.” “Pension shortfall?” You confusedly ask. “What do you mean?” “It’s for my pension plan,” responds the well-dressed stranger. “Our government employee plan sure took a big hit in 2008 because of the economic slowdown and in order to make scheduled payments in the future to myself and my colleagues, the government has raised taxes to put more money into our plan.” “Oh, I know all about 2008,” you tell the stranger. “My spouse and I both have to work a couple more years to make up for the fact our RRSPs lost 20 per cent of their value.” “I understand,” says the government employee. “But we still need to raise your taxes. Our fund has promised guaranteed pension payments to my colleagues and I and there’s no longer enough cash to make those payments.” “Let me get this straight,” you state rather angrily. “My RRSPs lost a pile of money during the slowdown, but now we have to put in more money into YOUR pension plan because it lost money too?” “That’s correct,” responds the nervous bureaucrat. “That’s ridiculous!” you exclaim. “Don’t I already contribute to your pension each year through my taxes?” “That’s correct,” notes the bureaucrat. “Right now, I put in seven per cent of my salary into the fund and the government matches it.” “You mean we the taxpayers match it, right?” You ask. “And now we have to put in more money to your plan even though I only have RRSPs and no workplace pension. No one matches my RRSP contributions and I’m working longer and having to put in more money so you can retire on schedule?” “All those statements are correct,” responds the bureaucrat. “Who on earth would agree to such an unfair and expensive system?” you cry out. “You did. Well, at least the politicians you voted for did,” responds the bureaucrat. With the exception of the bureaucrat actually coming to your door to ask for additional money, the essence of the story above is sadly true. Statistics Canada data shows 75 per cent of Saskatchewan taxpayers working outside the government have no workplace pension whatsoever. Yet they continue to put in more and more into costly government employee pension plans politicians our politicians have agreed to. For example, back in 2009, the plan that covers municipal government employees (outside of the major cities) saw employees put in 5.4 per cent of their pay and taxpayers match it. As of January 2013, that rate will be 8.15 per cent for both parties; a 51 per cent increase in pension costs per employee that the taxpayer has to pay for. While the problem has largely been fixed at the provincial level (most employees hired after the late 1970s are in a less costly “defined contribution” plan), municipal and federal employee pension plans are still in costly “defined benefit” pension plans. The only way to keep the government from digging into your wallet (and that bureaucrat off your front porch) is if we reform government employee pension plans across the entire province. What is your politician doing about the problem?

(79 per cent) than urban residents (86 per cent satisfied). Perhaps this is a reflection of reality, given that many small towns don’t have an RCMP depot. In some other areas, rural Saskatchewan was more optimistic than their urban cousins. More rural people (54 per cent) believe agric-business can be trusted to protect the environment than urban people (49 per cent). And when asked whether home ownership is still attainable in Saskatchewan, rural residents were more positive (76 per cent) than urban residents (64 per cent). Of course, this might have something to do with the fact that rural housing prices are cheaper. However, what emerged in the survey is confirmation that rural residents are generally further right-of-centre in their views than urban residents. More rural residents thought that immigration levels were too high (34 per cent) than urban residents (25 per cent). And while 70 per cent of rural residents don’t believe First Nations pay enough taxes, only 59 per cent of urban residents felt the same way. And it was the moral issue questions in the University of Saskatchewan survey where we see some of the

most pronounced differences between rural and urban. While 73 per cent of urban residents surveyed believed the federal government should continue to recognize gay marriages, only 57 per cent of rural people felt similarly. On re-instituting capital punishment, 65 per cent of rural people supported the notion compared with just 49 per cent of urban people. Sixty-four per cent of rural residents disagreed with decriminalizing marijuana compared with 55 per cent of

urban residents. And while 74 per cent of urban residents said they believed abortion was a woman’s choice, only 64 per cent of rural residents felt that way. Of course, other issues factor in. Rural Saskatchewan residents are generally older which factor into the thinking. And let’s accept that some of the survey differences are relatively small. But the point is, rural residents do think slightly differently than urban folks. Or so the surveys tell us.

Reader Opinions

Warman city celebration memorable occasion Congratulations Mayor Spence for another successful term. You earned this position to represent Warman, with your caring and hard work. I am sure Municipal challenges are very difficult at times and I offer my appreciation to those who remain on Council and those who have left the Municipal scene for their commitment to our city, and thank you to the new faces on Council who wish to bring new insight into the public debate. Last weekend along with my wife, my sister and hundreds of others I attended the celebrations of the “Grand Opening of the Legends Centre” and of Warman becoming a City. As I was listening to the speakers in attendance for the program I was impressed with how important this occasion really was and it would

likely become more so to some of us as time evolves. I believe as we get older it does become more significant to us about the documentation and the celebration of important events. Fortunately these things have always been important to Sharon and Leonard and to our benefit they shared an interesting short history with pictures and information about Warman. Gord and Terry did a first class job as emcees devoid of patronizing dribble, with just the right amount of satire. It was kind of Bryan Warman and his family to take time and join us to endorse the name “Warman.” Different dignitaries mentioned all the amenities that have diversified the economy of Warman, how they have improved the community services allowing an opportuni-

ty to share our progress for tomorrow by engaging people and celebrating Warman as a great place to live, work and play. All of these amenities make our City much better and more enjoyable for those that live here, and those that want to live here. Mayor Spence and her team did a very good job at setting the stage for this day and looking after all details to make the day memorable. I am old enough to enjoy other people working hard. P.S. Tomorrow if I ask my wife how her day went and she tells me “I went to the city” I will almost certainly assume she went to Saskatoon. But that is all right we are one city, and we will move forward together. Edgar Bergen Warman

ADVICE FOR REAL LIFE

THE BIG 5-OH TICKLES THE FUNNY BONE Langham Theatrical Company raises the bar again with new comedy

Multi-layered script also gives gentle poke in the ribs with unexpected twist By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

T

he audience came for the laughs, and the Langham Theatrical Company delivered in spades with its latest production – entitled “The Big 5-Oh.” The play, which opened last weekend and concludes with performances on Thursday, November 8 through Sunday, November 11, is a genuinely funny tale of how a middle-aged professor and his slightly dysfunctional family confront one of the basic facts of life – namely death. Nobody lives forever, and you have to make the most of it while you’re here. The trouble is most of us become so wrapped up in all the little distractions that seem so important at the time that we lose sight of the big picture. Politics, money, jobs, love, and what to make for supper all get high priority treatment until the grim reaper knocks on the door. There’s a good, old-fashioned moral to the story in the Big 5-Oh, but it’s only after the final curtain comes down that you realize how subtly it makes its point. The Big 5-Oh features Darrell Novakovski as George Thomas, a professor of Sociology who’s fast approaching his 50th birthday. He has a loving, if somewhat neurotic, wife named Marie, played by Elaine Nemanishen; a 25-year daughter named Julie, played by Nicole Bergman; and a 22-year old son, Eric, portrayed by Stuart Cameron. The other cast members are Will Peters as Julie’s boyfriend, Douglas; Sonia Zacharias as Kathy Walters, the widow who lives next door to the Thomas family; and Daria Boehr as Sara Wu, one of George’s students at the university. The script, by playwright Brian Mitchell, has several layers. It’s a

broad comedy on the surface, but toward the end of the play there’s an unexpected, darker twist to the plot. The scene is funny in its own right, but also disturbingly creepy. People aren’t always what they seem, apparently. And as the character of Eric Thomas discovers, the sweet little old lady next door who appears to be so harmlessly eccentric is actually not somebody you want to mess with. Stuart Cameron, who grew up in Langham and has studied drama at the University of Saskatchewan, steals the show as Eric, a struggling rock musician whose secret passion is classical music and opera. Over the course of the play, his character progresses from lazy slacker to idealistic youth, and it’s ironic that he’s the one who ends up understanding human nature better than his father, who’s spent his entire academic career studying exactly that. Novakovski, who hails from Martensville, is a veteran of many community theatre productions, and he uses his charmingly caustic touch to bring his character to life. Nemanishen’s portrayal of Marie Thomas’ eccentricities is both funny and believable. Bergman brings a combination of self-confidence and vulnerability to her character, while Daria Boehr draws on her own experience to capture the essence of the shy, introspective student. Will Peters’ character, Douglas, may not be the most likeable on the surface, but Peters’ portrayal of the 44-year old “alcoholic, atheistic, vegetarian Republican” is both funny and sincere. As always, the dinner supplied by Creative Catering adds to the growing reputation of the Langham Theatrical Company’s performances. Each production sets the bar higher, and The Big 5-Oh is no exception. Tickets are available through the community theatre group’s website at www. langhamtheatricalcompany.ca . or by calling 283-4413.

Stuart Cameron (right) talks with members of the audience after a special opening-night gala performance of “The Big 5-Oh” in Langham on Thursday, November 1. Cameron was raised in Langham and is a member of the cast of the Langham Theatrical Company’s latest production. Performances run this weekend at the Langham Community Hall.

CLARK’S CROSSING GAZETTE • THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2012 Division of RM would be like a messy divorce The RM Council revisited the thorny question of the division of the RM at last Monday’s meeting and Councillor Sherry Mervold compared it to a messy divorce and suggested it’s not an easy 50/50 split. “This is a subjective thing,” Mervold said. Practical considerations quickly revealed the difficulty. Bob Paisley, the RM General Manager and Acting Administrator, said dividing assets and liabilities 50/50 may not be fair if, for example, 80% of a financial asset came from a certain geographical location.

Mervold said of the March 2012 petition to split: “It’s 2,000 rate payers versus 8,000 so do they only get a quarter? Why 50% if it’s only a quarter of the population?” Currently, the question is before the Minister of Intergovernmental Relations, Jim Reiter. But Council has some homework to do to provide information to the Minister. This goes beyond division of assets, to proposed budgets, public services and boundaries. While council has decided not to hold a referendum, they must still undertake some

analysis to answer a question that may remain hypothetical. The province has requested that background information be provided by December 31, 2012. However, Council approved a motion put forward by Councilor Gord Gunoff to request a six month extension. Both Councillors Wendy Trask and Joanne Janzen noted the petition to split the RM was rate-payer driven, but Gunoff said the move is also councillor-driven. Councilor John Germs stated: “I have never supported the split and I do not believe most of the people here sup-

port it,” and he asked, “What are the advantages of doing this. I don’t know, I’ve never had that explained to me.” Councilor David Fox said, “I’ve been opposed to this idea ever since it came up. I hope it might go away of its own accord.” He added, “The split along the river, that’s not where the political divide is in the RM. Division 4 is for unity like the new reeve.” Hydrogeological Study needed for Grasswood Estates Developers of a new subdivision south of Saskatoon known as Grasswood Estates

may be on the hook to pay for water testing as part of its development service agreement. Council approved a motion to have all wells within a one mile radius of Grasswood Estates tested at the developer’s expense to form a baseline of water quality. Area residents don’t drink the water but they use it to water their animals and vegetation. Results would be submitted back to council. After 75% of the development is complete, the wells are to be tested again for water quality, and again after five years, by the same method.

Clever folks set to lock horns in annual fundraiser By TERRY PUGH tpugh@ccgazette.ca

Some of the brightest Grade 5 students in Martensville are set to take the stage at the fourth annual “Are You Smarter than a Martensville Fifth Grader?” event on Saturday, November 17 at the Northridge Centennial Community Centre. The live game show, hosted by a celebrity from CTV Television in Saskatoon, features students from both Valley Manor and Venture Heights elementary schools in Martensville, according to Kristee Lynn Adrian, coordinator of the Martensville Community Access Centre. “It’s one of our major fundraising activities for the year,” said Adrian in a recent interview. “We’re very excited because it provides a great showcase for the kids, and it’s also a great evening of entertainment.” Adrian said the event will feature local talent, including a Martensville rhythmic gymnastics group as well as singers and dancers. She said the student contestants are chosen through a process involving a questionnaire. The students that have the highest scores on the questionnaire are then chosen by teachers and judges from the Community Access Centre. Adrian said many students answering the questions scored at the top end of the scale. “I was pleasantly surprised at how well this crop of kids did on the questionnaire,” she said. “They really blew me away. We had questions on Canadian history, math, science, health and nutrition - all kinds of areas.” Tickets for the event are available from the Martensville Community Access Centre and also at the door. Admission is $5 per person or $20 per family (age 4 and under is free). Student contestants include: Mia Novecosky, Nikolas Riemer, Emma Ens, Sarah Edmison, Carter Dyck, Avery Smith, and Bailey Dahl. The adult contestants are Marc Butikofer (Director of Development with Great Plains College) and Trent Ens (Owner of Smokhaus Meats) and the show host is Jeremy Dodge of CTV.

Warman High School teacher Terry Stanviloff wields the scissors as he chops off a handful of Dustin Gasmo’s curls at a pep rally October 31.

Student’s distinctive curly locks bite the dust for a good cause By TERRY PUGH tpugh@ccgazette.ca

F

or the last five years, Dustin Gasmo’s big, frizzy, “Afro” hairdo has been his trademark. But the 17-year old Grade 12 student at Warman High School bid goodbye to his curly locks on Wednesday, October 31 in a public shearing at a school pep rally in front of hundreds of onlookers. “I’ve been waiting years for this opportunity,” grinned Terry Stanviloff, a teacher at the high school, as he snipped off a handful of curls while applause echoed through

the school auditorium. The historic haircut was the result of a fundraising drive by the Warman Wish Warriors, in which over $10,000 was raised for the Children’s Wish Foundation. During the fundraising campaign, a website was set up where people could make a donation to the cause and vote whether Gasmo would keep his afro hairstyle, or get it lopped off in public. Not surprisingly, over $9300 was raised from people who wanted him to lose his Afro, while $1500 was received from people who wanted him to keep his distinctive hairstyle.

Gasmo, who was born with a congenital heart disorder and has undergone numerous surgeries over the years, was the recipient of a Children’s Wish Foundation gift two years ago. At the time, he underwent emergency surgery and many weeks of painful recovery until he regained his health. Gasmo felt that it was time for him to step forward and return the favour for the foundation in the hope that other young people will benefit in the same way he did. His mother, Meridee Gasmo, said she’s extremely proud of her son. “He’s not a really outgoing young

man, so it took a lot for him to take this on,” she said. “I’m really happy and proud of him.” She said her son’s distinctive hairstyle was something he cultivated when he started at the school five years ago. “When he was young, his hair was very short, because it’s so curly,” she said. “So it’s not really a shock for me to see it clipped, but it’s definitely different for everyone else.” Dustin Gasmo agreed the new shorter hairstyle will take some getting used to. “I’ll definitely be wearing a toque this winter,” he said.

FORT CARLTON HOCKEY LEAGUE

Wildcats drop pair to open season The Bruno T-Birds rolled into town with a short bench but still made short work of Warman, dumping the Wildcats 9-1 Saturday night in Fort Carlton Hockey League action. Justin Magnson and Mike Winkel each tallied twice for the T-Birds who built period leads of 4-0 and 5-0. Other marksmen for Bruno were Cleve Len, Blake Huber, Kyle Sibley, Kurt Ellis and Brett Novak while Shadow Reddekopp had the lone goal for Warman. Magnson’s first goal of the night came just 42 seconds into the contest at The Legends Centre, putting an early dent into the Wildcats home opener. Len’s goal came a little over a minute later. Winkel’s first goal of the night – on the power play – at the 7:58 mark chased Wildcats starting goaltender Brennan Kirkness in favour of Brock Hanson. Magnson’s second goal, scored on another power play, with five minutes left in the first frame, built a lead that Warman could not recover from. The Wildcats had plenty of power plays of their own but failed to convert their nine opportunities while Bruno was 2-4 with the man advantage. Warman out shot Bruno 33-27 in the contest.

Woman sought after theft of liquor, dangerous driving incident in Warman Submitted by Sgt. Warren Gherasim Warman RCMP Detachment

OPEN LIQUOR VIOLATION On October 30 ay 8:45 p.m. police received a call of a suspicious vehicle on Centennial Drive north of Main Street in Martensville. Police located a pick-up truck matching the vehicle description with two men inside. When police investigated the vehicle they found that one of the men was in possession of an open container of alcoholic beverage. A 24 year old Swan Lake, Manitoba, man was issued a violation ticket for possessing open liquor in a vehicle, which has a voluntary penalty of $360.00. TWO DEER HIT ON HWY 7 During the evening hours of October 30, police received calls for two separate collisions on Highway 7, west of Saskatoon, where vehicles had collided with deers. Both vehicles sustained significant damage, but there were no injuries to the occupants. Motorists should exercise extra caution at night as there are significant amounts of wildlife traffic on provincial highways and secondary roads. FREEZING RAIN CRASH On November 1 at 8:00 p.m. police received a call of a single vehicle collision on Highway 14, west of Saskatoon. A 2000 Ford Ranger had left the roadway and rolled into the ditch, the lone occupant of the vehicle, a 61 year old Asquith man, was uninjured. The road was covered with ice as a result of recent freezing rain. Investigation determined that the driver had been going too fast for the road conditions and was issued a violation ticket under the Traffic Safety Act. HIGHWAY 7 ROLLOVER On November 3 at 2:30 a.m. police were called to a single vehicle rollover collision near

Vanscoy on Highway 7. Police located a 1995 Pontiac Sunfire on its roof in the ditch. There were no people located at the scene. Police tracked down the registered owner, a 22 year-old man from Saskatoon. He advised that he had been operating the vehicle and lost control and rolled it. He was uninjured and had no passengers with him. The man was charged for driving too fast for road conditions and failing to report a collision.

HIGHWAY 60 COLLISION On November 3 at 7:15 p.m. police were called to a collision on the Merrill School Road near Highway 60, southwest of Saskatoon. A 2009 Ford F150 truck had collided with a horse that had wandered on to the roadway. The horse was killed in the collision, the driver of the truck sustained minor injuries, but hospitalization was not required. There are no charges being contemplated in this incident. TWICE THE LEGAL LIMIT On November 3 at 5:45 p.m. RCMP were contacted by an off-duty RCMP member who advised that he was observing an erratic driver on Highway 16 near the Borden Bridge. The off-duty police officer followed a 2010 Volkswagen Golf until it came to a stop near the bridge. He discovered the lone occupant of the vehicle was a female who was quite intoxicated. An on-duty police officer attended and arrested the woman for impaired driving. She was taken to the police detachment where she provided breath samples that were in excess of double the legal limit. The vehicle was seized and the woman, a 22 year old resident of Vawn, Saskatchewan, was released on charges of impaired driving and driving with a blood alcohol level in excess of .08 mgs.

PELLET GUN DAMAGE Sometime during the evening of the 29 of October, or the early morning hours of the 30th of October, the front windows of two downtown Langham businesses were shot out with a pellet gun or small calibre firearm. Police are seeking information from anyone that may have seen the person(s) responsible for causing this damage. LOCK YOUR VEHICLES On October 30 police received a report of a stolen 2004 GMC Duramax truck, black in colour, from the Ruddell area. The truck had a trailer attached to the rear, and on the trailer was a tractor. The owner reports that there was also a yellow tool box on the back. It is believed that the vehicle was left unlocked with the keys inside overnight. Police remind vehicle owners to always lock their vehicles, do not leave the keys inside and never leave valuables in plain sight. THIEF DANGEROUS DRIVER On October 31 at 2:30 p.m. police were contacted by a Warman business on the 500 block of Central Street West in Warman. The employee at the business advised police that she observed an adult female select a bottle of liquor from a shelf and then conceal it in her purse and leave the store without paying. The employee confronted the woman outside of the store and told her she had to pay for it. The woman got into a grey coloured car and then drove at the employee, forcing her out of the way. The incident was captured on video and police are attempting to identify the woman as she is wanted for theft and dangerous driving. The police investigation continues. MARTENSVILLE B&E On November 1 at 11:00 p.m. police received a call of a male breaking into a vehicle

on 1st Street South in Martensville. The owner of the vehicle had confronted the suspect and attempted to hold him for police, but he broke away. A short chase ensued, but the suspect got away. An examination of the scene revealed a wallet in the snow beside the vehicle. From the identification inside police were able to identify the culprit. He was located a short while later and arrested. A 16 year old male from Martensville was released from custody, including a curfew condition, and is scheduled to appear in Youth Court on February 6th in answer to the charge. On November 02nd, police attended at the youth’s residence to check on his curfew compliance and found that he was not at home. He was served for a further charge of breaching an undertaking.

RESIDENTIAL BREAK-IN On November 1 at 11:55 p.m. police received a complaint of a residential break-in on the 100 block of 2nd Street East in Langham. Suspects entered the residence through an unlocked rear patio door and went through drawers and dumped over some household plants. A quantity of jewelry is reported stolen. The incident occurred sometime between 6:30 and 11:30 p.m. Police are asking anyone with information about this offence to call the Warman RCMP or Crime Stoppers. MARTENSVILLE VANDALS On November 3 at 9:35 a.m. police received a complaint of vandalism to a vehicle parked on the 600 block of Main Street in Martensville.

Warman Wolverines earn berth in provincial football championship final By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

he Warman Wolverines are heading to the provincial 9-man high school football championship this Saturday, November 10, in Melfort. The Wolverines punched their ticket to the big game with an impressive 69-20 win over the visiting Indian Head Broncs on Saturday, November 2 at Neufeld Field in Warman. It was the biggest margin of victory for the team in its four-year history, and gives the Warman High School football squad a huge shot of confidence going into the biggest game of the season. The Wolverines will take on the Melfort Comets, a team that’s making its second-straight appearance in the championship game, and which is hungry to avenge a loss to the Delisle Rebels in last year’s provincial final. But even though this is

the Wolverines’ first appearance in post-season play, their head coach says the team is confident heading into the big game. “These kids are focused, they’re healthy, and they’ve got the ability to go all the way,” said Tyler Scheidt in a post-game interview. “All season long, they’ve just been getting better and better. They’re confident, they trust each other and they know what it takes to get the job done.” Scheidt said while the team is excited about its successful post-season run, the players know the biggest challenge is coming up this weekend. “These kids are committed,” he said. “They really want to be here. We were out practicing last Thursday at 7 o’clock in the morning and it was minus 18 – and every kid showed up. That shows you the level of commitment they have.” The game started off bad-

ly for the Wolverines, as the Broncs’ Michael Reiger returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown to give the visitors a 6-0 lead. But midway through the opening quarter, the Wolverines’ Spencer Ulrich started going to work, topping off a 70-yard drive to score his first of five touchdowns on the day. Warman quarterback Logan Misskey had two majors, Adam Leik accounted for a pair of touchdowns, and Josh Misskey added one more major. Kicker Nyle Segovia was good on 9 converts, missing only 2 converts and one field goal attempt where the ball bounced off the upright. The Wolverines led 42-14 at the half, thanks to a solid defensive effort that effectively stymied the Broncs’ passing and running games. The Broncs’ other touchdowns came on another first quarter kickoff return, and a successful third-down plunge from the one-yard line in the late stages of the third quarter. Warman defensive coach Terry Stanviloff isn’t known for cracking a grin on game day, but he was all smiles after the final whistle. “I’m very proud of these guys,” said Stanviloff in a post-game interview. “Our defense was much-maligned during the season, and I guess I’m probably the harshest critic, but they did the job today. We worked real hard in practice all week long and the guys stayed focused and they did their job and they did it well.” Stanviloff said nobody panicked when the visitors scored on the opening kickoff. “We knew our offense would get some points,” he said. “Our objective was to stop them on their first of-

Warman Wolverines’ linebacker Kyle Keating has his game face on as he swoops in to tackle Indian Head Broncs’ quarterback Adam Yee during the provincial 9-man high school football semi-final in Warman last Saturday. The Wolverines put on their best performance of the season, defeating the visitors 69-20 and earning themselves a berth in the provincial championship game against the Melfort Comets in Melfort on Saturday, November 10. fensive series, and we did that. We wanted to come out strong, because we’ve had some slow starts this season. Winning that first series battle is big, because it gives you confidence. These guys are pumped. They believe they can do anything.” For the graduating players, playing their final game of their high school football career in the provincial final is a dream come true. “Yeah, it’s pretty exciting,” confirmed Warman kicker Nyle Segovia in his usual understated tone. “I’m probably the happiest I’ve ever been. My last year of football with this team, and I get to go to provincials. It’s awesome.” The Grade 12 student missed most of last season because of injuries, so he’s glad to be making the most of this year’s run. Spencer Ulrich is another Grade 12 student who’s gearing up for his final game

in the red and black Wolverines uniform. He combined an outstanding running game with a series of highlight-reel receptions during the semi-final, but was quick to give credit to the rest of the guys on the field. ”I had some great blocking,” said Ulrich. “We studied a lot of film and we had a solid plan going into this game. We just wanted to take it one play at a time. We knew Indian Head was a good team so we just had to make sure we focused on the next play.” He said that’s the same approach they’ll take against Melfort next weekend. “They’re a great team and they have home-field advantage,” said Ulrich. “We need to be ready for that.” Tyler Scheidt said he’s confident the team will rise to the challenge, because they’ve come a very long way in a short season. “If you had

asked me in early September if we’d be where we are today – heading to the provincial final – I would have said ‘yes’ – because I really thought it was possible,” said Scheidt. “With the quality of athletes we have and the leadership these kids bring to the field and the level of commitment they have, it was definitely possible.” Scheidt said after the opening loss of the season to the Delisle Rebels, the defending champions, the team knew what they were up against. Their only other loss was to the Martensville Royals late in the season, and that was also a learning experience, noted Scheidt. “It all comes down to commitment and preparation,” he concluded. “Getting this far is a great thing for the players, the program, the school and the community. It will be a busy week gearing up for this final.”

Delisle Rebels’ hopes for another championship shattered Defending champs knocked off 42-12 by Melfort Comets in grudge rematch of last year’s final By HILARY KLASSEN

hilaryklassen@gmail.com

T

wo undefeated nineman football teams, the Delisle Rebels and the Melfort Comets, clashed last Saturday in the high school league provincial semi-final. Both were in their third playoff game but only one would emerge victorious. The Delisle Rebels have enjoyed an incredible season of football with an impressive record of 8 wins and 0 losses. As defending provincial champions they had every reason to believe they could do it again. But Melfort came to play. At the end of the day, Delisle had to eat their first loss of the season and lay to rest any hopes of being champs again. The Melfort Comets shattered their perfect season with a 4212 win. Delisle Coach Ken Byers reflected: “I’m proud of my boys and how hard they fought. There are 20 other teams that weren’t playing today. I know for our team that they’re heartbroken about the loss, but they still had a really good season, and there’s so many reasons to be positive. We ended up 8 and 1 and the boys played well. Just Melfort today was the bigger, stronger, better team.” But in the first half it was still anybody’s game. Melfort had the first possession and burned through three downs

to go nowhere. When Delisle got the ball they wasted no time putting it in the end zone on a completed pass by quarterback Kyle Richardson to Tanner Olson. Not bad for their first play of the game two minutes in, just doing what they do and taking care of business. But the Rebels were called for holding and sustained a fifteen yard penalty, which nullified the touchdown. After that the Rebels seemed to have a harder time doing what they’ve done so well all season. Melfort had a couple of good drives in the first quarter and scored a major. Each team had a fumble or two in the first half. Melfort capitalized when Delisle fumbled a punt return deep in their own territory. As announcer Riley Sharp put it, “Melfort used their superior strength and size differential to get another touchdown,” with four minutes left in first half. After two quarters, the Comets led by 2 touchdowns. Byers said, “It was still 14-0 at the half so the game was still one play away. But it was just in the first play of the game a default touchdown, we could have been up 7 nothing. It was a huge momentum change because we had a kid that was caught holding.” Melfort had success in the second half by leaning heavily on offensive lineman Cain Grisdale whose repeated play of running up the gut moved the Comets down the field. The Rebels completed some spectacular passes, with Jeff Shirley snagging one near the sidelines despite good

coverage, and running out of bounds. With six minutes left in the game, Tanner Olson blew past the Melfort defense on a runback to score a touchdown. The team attempted a two point conversion but Richardson’s pass was batted down. But it wasn’t enough. The Rebels found themselves unable to create the kind of momentum needed to convert big plays into scoring opportunities. Byers acknowledged, “in the second half we lost a little bit of our composure, took some penalties that we shouldn’t have taken that put us in a tough position.” But he also stated, “Our defense played really well. The score is really unfair to our defense.” Having had a perfect season last year, and knowing what’s possible, makes it harder for the Rebels to suck up a defeat at this point. “But I’m still proud of our boys. I’m still proud of our community,” said the coach. “We’re a community that includes Delisle, Vanscoy and Pike Lake and we only have twelve, thirteen hundred residents. Melfort’s a town of six thousand. We’ve got 83 available boys in our school, they have 180, and you could tell just by the height of the two teams and the size of the two teams you know, we’re giving up four inches probably on average and 30 or 40 pounds on every player.” Defensive linebacker Cole Ward said he gave everything he had. “I put it all on the line as much as I could. Unfortunately I broke my pinky. I played through it, I played hard, gave it all, no regrets.”

HILARY KLASSEN | CLARK’S CROSSING GAZETTE

Delisle Rebels quarterback Kyle Richardson (above and lower inset) had a dual role, adding kicking to his duties, replacing Taylor Barber, who sustained a broken leg in their last game. Ward was also impressed with his teammates and their season. “We had lots of new guys come in like Dale McGonegal and Logan Atchison, I’m very proud of them. We had two Grade 10 defensive linemen undersized, except for the one guy was fairly big, also our kicker Garth Knittig (#58). They played a hell of a season, no regrets on them they did well. I’m very proud of our defense and the offense gave it their all this game. Unfortunately we couldn’t move the ball as we’d like to. Melfort came out on top. We’re a good team, they’re a good team.” As a Grade 12 student, Ward has played his last game for the Rebels but hopes to continue playing football. “Hopefully, I make it with the Hill-

tops or Huskies next year.” He mentioned several other team members that carry similar hopes. There was sadness in the Rebels camp and Byers said, “I know right now it hurts for them and that’s because they care. I’m glad that they care enough that it’s emotional for them. I’m really proud of our boys, I’m proud of my coaching staff. I refer to myself as Moses all the time, just like Moses leaned on his staff so do I. Our defensive coordinator Jaren Vetter does an unbelievable job and all our other coaches are just spectacular, the effort they put in. And our boys, they watch game film five days a week and they work

hard, and I’m proud of all the effort that they’ve done.” The provincial champions will be determined on Saturday, Nov. 10 when the Warman Wolverines meet the Melfort Comets in Melfort.

Highway16 MegaBowl brings schools together By BRENDA ERICKSON

Communications Consultant Prairie Spirit School Division

Students from two schools in Prairie Spirit School Division got together to have fun, make new friends and raise over $3000 for the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan (CHFS). Dubbed

the “Highway 16 MegaBowl”, junior and senior boys and girls volleyball teams from Borden School travelled to Colonsay School on Thursday, October 4 to play volleyball for a good cause. Money was raised through food sales, raffle tickets and pledges. The volleyball offi-

cials and bus drivers donated their time for the event. The food and raffle prizes were also donated. Colonsay School students worked hard to decorate the school and support the event. Andrew Merryweather, Principal of Colonsay School, said they hoped the event would serve a few different purposes. “I’m hoping our students will look back and realize that they can make a difference in our province,” he said. “The students learned that

some things are bigger than winning and that the community will be there to support our school when we ask.” Merryweather said they are already planning for next year and called the event a “spectacular success.” The administrators from the two schools share a passion for volleyball and the two schools have a good relationship. Merryweather noted that the schools support each other at tournaments and provincial championships when they are

CLARK’S CROSSING GAZETTE • THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2012

New Blade, Nathan Burns, jumps from one bus to another Several years ago, a W.H.L. player was traded for a bus. On Friday, Nathan Burns traded a seat on the Vancouver Giants’ coach for a spot on the Saskatoon Blades’ bus as they sat about 100 feet apart at the St. Eugene Mission Resort in Cranbrook, B.C. “I found out, actually, about a couple of hours into (Vancouver’s) bus ride (from Lethbridge to Cranbrook on Friday),” explained the 19-year-old forward. “It was a little weird being on the bus (with his suddenly former Giants’ teammates) after.” The younger brother of former Blades’ left winger Michael Burns was acquired by the Bridge City Bunch from Vancouver for 18-year-old centre Travis McEvoy, a first round pick in the 2014 W.H.L. Bantam Draft and a third round selection in the 2013 draft. “We’ve worked on (getting Nathan Burns) for months and months and months,” said Saskatoon G.M. and head coach Lorne Molleken. “And, we gave

INSIDE EDGE

LES LAZARUK

Voice of the Blades on 92.9 The Bull

up quite a bit to get him.” The first round draft pick part of the deal raised a lot of eyebrows around the W.H.L., but Molleken noted that was the price last year in negotiations with the Giants to acquire Burns and the Edmonton product is undrafted, meaning he’ll likely return for his 20-year-old season. As for whether he was done dealing, Molleken smiled wryly and said, in a coy fashion, “Time will tell.” Indeed it will. Following is the updated Saskatoon Blades’ roster…as of Monday: 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), Brenden Walker (92), Josh Nicholls (92), Nathan Burns (93), Logan Harland (95), Lukas Sutter (93), Brett Stovin (94), Ryan Graham (96), Jessey Astles (93); ***** BLADES PLAYER-OF-THEWEEK…AND MONTH – Where would the Bridge City Bunch be…at least offensively…without veteran Josh Nicholls? The 20-year-old right winger gets this writer’s Player-of-the-Month

honour, from the start of the season to the end of October, for scoring 12 goals and adding six assists for 18 points. The Tsawassen, B.C. product collected points in nine of 14 games, including five multi-goal and six multi-point games. Over the weekend, the fifth year Blade added three goals an an assist to become, just, the 21st skater in franchise history to rack up

250 career points. He is 19th on the all-time list with 251 and is one short of Clarke Wilm for 18th place and two back of Marc Habscheid for 17th spot! In three road games, Nicholls scored five goals and added a pair of helpers for seven points with a +4 rating. ***** UPCOMING GAMES – The Bridge City Bunch plays two of its three home games in the

month of November on backto-back nights this weekend… Friday against the Regina Pats and Saturday versus the Seattle Thunderbirds. First face-off is 7:05 p.m. both nights with the broadcasts on CKBL-FM (92-9, THE BULL) at 6:30. After that, the Blades head off on their annual Western Conference road trip…this year going through the five teams in the B.C. Division.

Riders are in the playoffs! After going home early one year ago, the Saskatchewan Roughriders are back in the CFL post-season party and they’ll visit Calgary’s house in the Western SemiFinal Sunday afternoon. The Riders learned lateFriday night that they would face Calgary in Round 1 after the Stampeders’ Week 19 win in Edmonton. That rendered Saturday’s Rider game in BC meaningless which is a good thing because the Riders lost 17-6, their fourth loss in a row. “My first thought was people talked about whether it’s better to go East or West in the playoffs but I think there was a stretch in the season where we played Calgary, BC and then went to Toronto,” Rider head coach Corey Chamblin said confidently. “I told you we’d do it (win them all). It’s one of those things where it just solidified what we thought and it happened that way.” Oh my what a fun week this is going to be! The Riders feel like they have a home playoff game because the Rider Nation

RIDER INSIDER ROD PEDERSEN

Voice of the Riders Roughriders Radio Network

habitually takes over McMahon Stadium in Calgary and this week will be no different. The Stampeders are the Riders’ top rival and there’s plenty of hard feelings between the two. The Roughriders have quietly simmered since blowing a fourth quarter lead in Week 4 at Calgary, their only visit to McMahon, and would love to atone for it. Of course outspoken Calgary tailback Jon Cornish said Chamblin “isn’t classy” for boldly guaranteeing he wouldn’t rush for 100 yards in their Week 13 meeting in Regina. Of course, Cornish didn’t and got so frustrated in the process he dropped his pants and mooned Rider fans on the East side of Mosaic Stadium. “I saw what Cornish said about me,” Chamblin, who has never suffered from a lack of confidence, said. “You tell Jon Cornish all of Canada knows

him for what he did. And in 30 years he’ll always remember me and my classiness.” Consider the first shot fired. Of course there’s the little matter of the Riders carrying a four-game losing streak into the playoffs. But don’t be fooled; Saturday’s loss in BC was a mirage. Darian Durant and Weston Dressler took the night off and Chris Getzlaf only played a series. On defence Odell Willis and Joe Lobendahn were excused as well. “Glad it’s over with,” Chamblin said after the game. “Time to move onto the playoffs. We were able to see some good things out there. We didn’t stack a full deck but some guys played their hearts out.” Chamblin has long maintained that come playoff time, his young troops would be ready. It would appear as though they are, as evidenced by the comment from Saturday’s offensive game star Brandon West. He said “It’s grind time”. Let’s grind.

Bethany Eagles soccer, hockey, basketball seasons underway Submitted by Bethany College Staff

Bethany College, Hepburn

September and October have been busy months, as the Eagles teams began their seasons. Tryouts were held early in September, with some bumps along the way as several of the teams did not have enough athletes to fill a roster. After searching through the files, we found alumni and others to fill vacant spots on our women’s soccer, men’s hockey, and men’s basketball teams. The volleyball season is

nearing the midway point and we would like to acknowledge Sarah Braun as our September/October Female Athlete of the Month. Braun has shown a willingness to be coached and, as a result, her play has greatly improved since the beginning of the season. She is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in the middle! She is a true pleasure to have on the team. Our Male Athlete of the Month is captain of the soccer team that travelled to Pambrun, SK to take part in the PAC Provincial Champion-

ship for outdoor soccer. Colton Willms demonstrated his passion for the game Odai Naphouthai while leading the team to victory! He was always a threat to the opposing teams with his speed and scoring ability. His desire to lead by example is second to none. Willms was awarded the MVP trophy for his efforts

and game results, please see the Bethany Athletics page on

our website, at www.bethany. sk.ca.
