MAYMONT ROLLOVER On November 7 at 12:15 p.m. police received a call of a roll-over accident on Highway 16, west of Maymont. Police attended and found a truck and trailer had lost control and rolled in the eastbound lanes and came to rest in the ditch. No one was seriously injured. The matter is still under investigation. HIGHWAY 12 COLLISION On November 10 at 1:45 p.m. RCMP responded to a single vehicle collision on Highway 12 at the overpass of Highway 11. A northbound Chev Blazer left the roadway in icy conditions and struck a tree in the ditch adjacent to the highway. The lone occupant, the male driver, was trapped and had to be extracted from the vehicle by the fire department. He was transported to hospital with serious injuries. Alcohol was not a factor, the roads were very icy at the time of the collision. The matter is still under investigation. DRUNK STUCK IN SNOW On November 10 at 8:15 p.m. police discovered a vehi-

cle stuck in the snow on Highway 12 south of Martensville. A Dodge Ram truck was stuck and police found a lone male occupant seated behind the wheel of the vehicle who displayed signs of impairment. The man was arrested and taken to the police detachment where he provided samples of his breath that exceeded the legal limit. A 68 year old Martensville area man was released on charges of impaired driving and driving with a blood alcohol in excess of the legal limit.

DRUNK IN THE DITCH On November 11 at 1:10 a.m. police responded with fire and ambulance to Highway 11 near the north access to Osler for a report of a Dodge truck in the ditch. A lone male was reported to have been located unconscious in the vehicle. Upon police attendance it was learned that the man was uninjured, but was displaying signs of impairment by alcohol. The man was arrested and taken to the police detachment where he provided breath samples that were in excess of the legal limit. A 38 year old Kelowna man was released on charges of impaired driving and driving with a blood alcohol in excess of the legal limit.

Clarkboro, Hague ferries closed for the season The short cut between Aberdeen and Warman is now closed. The Clarkboro Ferry shut down service for the season late last week as a result of the plunge in temperatures and the increase in ice floe on the South Saskatchewan River. The Hague Ferry is also closed for the season because of the ice. According to the provincial government’s website, the only ferry still running is the Riverhurst Ferry, which crosses Lake Diefenbaker.

WRONG WAY HIGHWAY On November 12 at 2:20 a.m. police were called to the scene of a vehicle in the ditch on Highway 11 near the highway 12 overpass, north of Saskatoon. Police attended and located a 1997 Ford F-150 truck in the ditch. Tracks in the snow revealed that the truck had been traveling south in the northbound lanes and then entered the ditch. Police discovered a female behind the wheel of the vehicle who was uninjured, but displaying signs of impairment. The woman was arrested and taken to the police detachment for breath samples which were in excess of the legal limit. A 28 year old Taber, Alberta woman was released on charges of impaired driving and driving with a blood alcohol in excess of the legal limit. PURSE PINCHED On November 6 between 8:30 and 10:00 p.m. a vehicle was left unlocked near Pioneer Place on Peters St. in Warman. A woman’s purse was left inside the vehicle. When the owner returned to the vehicle they discovered that the vehicle had been en-

On November 13 at 7:30 a.m. police and EMS were called and upon arrival discovered the male and female in the residence both unconscious. It was quickly determined that the male had died, but the female was still alive. EMS transported the female victim to Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon. The couple had been discovered by a family member who came to the property to check on them. SaskEnergy personnel were called by police to inspect the scene and determined that the carbon monoxide levels in the residence were at lethal levels. Investigators believe the boiler in the residence was the source of the carbon monoxide gas. No names are being released until family notifications are completed. The police investigation is continuing.

tered and the purse stolen. There are no suspects or witnesses in this incident.

WARMAN THEFT On the morning of November 7 police received a report of a theft from a motor vehicle on Canora Street in Warman. A vehicle on that street was entered by thieves and keys were taken sometime overnight. Residents are again cautioned not to leave vehicles unlocked or to leave valuables in a vehicle in plain sight. STEREO SWIPED Sometime during the early morning hours of November 7 a vehicle was broken into on the 500 block of 6th Avenue North in Warman.

Snowmobiler survives plunge through ice A 52-year-old man survived a plunge into icy water on Saturday, November 10 when his snowmobile went through the ice on a dugout south of Clavet Paramedics responded to the incident, which occurred about 3:30 p.m. MD Ambulance spokesperson Troy Davies said that on arrival, the patient was sitting on top of his snowmobile as it was submerged in the water. The Saskatoon Fire Department used their rescue craft to safely get the victim off his snowmobile. The patient suffered very minor injuries and was released at the scene. Davies said snowmobilers and the public in general need to ensure ice is fully frozen before walking or riding on it. This includes dugouts and municipal water reservoirs in parks.

Canada Post sets $200 fee for mail delivery in new subdivisions By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

If you’re buying a house in a new residential neighbourhood next year, you can expect to pay a one-time fee of $200 for mail delivery. Canada Post is implementing a “partial cost-recovery initiative” that includes a $200 fee per mailing address for new community mail boxes (CMB). The fee will come into effect on January 1, 2013 and will be charged to developers. The fee will then likely be passed on to home purchasers. Canada Post issued a letter to municipalities across Canada in mid-October outlining the reasons for the one-time fee. A copy of the letter was tabled at the Martensville City Council meeting on Tuesday, November 6. In the letter, Jacques Cote, Canada Post Group President for Physical Delivery, said the corporation “remains

committed to providing a full range of postal services in every community, including new developments.” But he notes, a 20 per cent decline in mail volumes over the past five years, coupled with unprecedented financial losses for Canada Post in 2011 and 2012, has prompted a change in its process of installing CMBs in new developments. Cote said there are between 150,000 to 200,000 new mailing addresses added every year across the country. Revenues, meanwhile, are declining. The $200 fee in new housing developments is intended to offset the cost of installing new CMBs. Canada Post will continue to absorb the cost of maintaining the equipment and providing reliable delivery services, said Cote. “The change is necessary to ensure that Canada Post is able to maintain the high level of service that Canadians have come to ex-

pect, while contributing to the corporation’s fiscal stability,” concluded Cote in his letter. Blair Davis, Canada Post Delivery Planning Manager, confirmed the new fee will take effect across Canada. “It is to be applied equally to all new developments in all municipalities across Canada where new community mail box equipment would be the mailing equipment put in place to service the development,” said Davis in an e-mail response to a query. He added that the municipality will not be asked to collect the fee on Canada Post’s behalf. “This fee will be charged directly to the developer and will be financially arranged between the developer and Canada Post Corporation,” said Davis. “Only if the municipality itself, happens to also be the developer, which is very rare, would the municipality be directly involved in the financial component.”

Strong economic fundamentals key to continued growth in region, says expert By TERRY PUGH

ALWAYS REMEMBERED

Master of Ceremonies Sgt. Kevin Schwartz salutes during the reading of In Flanders Fields at the Remembrance Day service held at the Brian King Centre on Sunday morning. At right, Ron Minter cradles his little one among a large crowd who turned out to solemnly pay respect to the veterans who have served and continue to serve our country at home and abroad. In addition to a scripture reading by Rev. Randy Heide, names of soldiers were read, the Last Post was played and wreaths were placed by dignitaries representing the cities of Warman and Martensville, the Town of Osler, RM of Corman Park and the Province, and representatives of various community organizations and schools.

The Saskatoon region may not have the top-performing economy in the country this year, but it’s right up there with the leaders, says Mario Lefebvre, an economist with the Conference Board of Canada. Speaking at the Saskatoon Regional Economic Development Authority (SREDA) fall economic forum in Saskatoon on Thursday, November 8, Lefebvre said population growth in Saskatoon and nearby urban centres including Warman and Martensville is driving construction activity, as new homes are being built at a rapid pace. “Housing is firing on all cylinders,” said Lefebvre. “Employment is back up after a period of decline in 2010 and 2011, and income in this region is growing by 4 per cent.” Lefebvre said while there may be a recession in the outside world, Saskatchewan appears to be weathering the turbulence well. “In most parts of the world, a 4 per cent increase in income would be cause for celebration,” he said. “In

Saskatchewan, it seems like a slowdown, but only because income grew by 11 per cent the year before.” Lefebvre said the pace of population growth in the Saskatoon region is double the national average. He noted that strong residential construction activity combined with healthy consumer spending are the two ingredients that “keep the economic ball rolling.” He said western Canada’s economic outlook is stronger than the rest of the country because commodity exports and prices are high, manufacturing activity in Ontario and Quebec is still recovering from the recession, and provincial and federal governments are tightening their belts. He said the west is better able to withstand those publicsector cutbacks because the private sector is picking up more of the jobcreation load. Lefebvre said one of the biggest challenges for businesses in the Saskatoon region is finding enough employees to meet their needs. “The Saskatoon economy is struggling to find qualified employees,” he said.

Lefebvre predicted economic growth in the Saskatoon region will rise to 3.6 per cent in 2013. He noted in 2012 the rate of growth in this region was 2.1 per cent, a decline from the year before, when it was 3.8 per cent. “Everybody needs a breather sometime,” said Lefebvre. “The rate of growth did slow down, but the most important fact is that you still had very healthy economic growth. The rate is very likely to accelerate in the coming months.” Tim LeClair, President and CEO of SREDA, said the statistics supplied by Lefebvre show what Saskatoon businesses already know. “Our growing economy will continue to demand trades and skilled labour,” LeClair said. “This means we will have additional pressure on housing and infrastructure. We will and do see new workers at all skill levels coming into the city and surrounding area, and we need to accommodate their families’ educational and social needs. Above all, we need to ensure this region remains a great place to do business.”

Corman Park OCP consultations on track By HILARY KLASSEN

hilaryklassen@gmail.com

T

he RM of Corman Park accepted a revised work plan, schedule and budget to analyze the Public Hearing comments received in response to its proposed Official Community Plan (OCP) on September 24, 2012. The RM council made the decision at its last meeting on November 5. This scope/change request will allow the council to engage in further discussion before either providing recommendations for potential changes or presenting justification for maintaining the policies in the draft OCP and Zoning Bylaw. A working meeting with the RM administration and the planning consulting team will look at the hearing results. Some of the comments from the public are relatively straightforward, while others hint at various alternatives or require additional consideration and further investigation by the team. The output of this meeting, slated for November 8, will be shared with Council at a facilitated meeting to further discuss the proposed documents, and suggested changes, outstanding resolutions and a strategy for moving the project forward to completion, including the public engagement sessions. Since the Council workshop will be informed by the working meeting, further information and scheduling are pending. Councillor Bas FroeseKooijenga expressed concern with spending the additional $16,500 which was approved to complete the scope change request. With these funds, the

for noise making were suggested. Regarding the court case cited involving Buena Vista Kennels, caution was urged about making changes based on one case. When decibel levels were mentioned, Reeve Harwood also advocated caution, asking “What is the magic number?” Councilor Sherry Mervold said, “It’s like buying an acreage and expecting the farmer next door to quit farming.” But she added, “This is going to be a real issue when we start having one-acre lots.” Any amendment to the bylaw requires unanimous consent. A motion to take out the bit about vacuuming was defeated, so for the time being, noise can continue at current levels.

Pavloff selected for another term as School Board Chairperson By BRENDA ERICKSON

Communications Consultant Prairie Spirit School Division

The new Prairie Spirit Board of Education met for the first time on Monday, November 5, following board elections in October. As part of the organizational meeting, the Board elected its Chair and Vice-Chair. Trustee Larry Pavloff was chosen as the Board’s Chair for a third oneyear term. Pavloff was nominated for the position by TrustLarry Pavloff, ee Sam Dyck. PSSD Chair “Larry has a wealth of classroom experience, he has worked with the Saskatchewan School Boards Association at a provincial level and he has a desire to do what’s best for students,” Dyck said in nominating Pavloff as Chair. Sam Dyck was re-elected as ViceChair, a position he has held for the past five years. Trustee Pam Wieler made the nomination, noting that Sam Dyck Dyck sees PSSD Vice-Chair both sides of an issue and brings his integrity to his work on the Board.

Trustee membership on Board and staff committees, pending Trustees’ acceptance, was also determined at the organizational meeting:

Warman Community Middle School (WCMS) Building Project Sam Dyck Staff Committees: Professional Support (Calendar) Committee Joanne Brochu, Bernie Howe, Keith Wagner Policy Review Committee As the result of a recent analysis of Board policies, the Board approved a motion to form a policy review committee. The Committee will complete the review of Board policies. The Board passed a motion to maintain current indemnity rates for Trustees, pursuant to a review during the upcoming fiscal year. Board Chair, Larry Pavloff, said he was looking forward to the upcoming year. “We have great things happening in Prairie Spirit,” he said. Music/Band programming in Prairie Spirit Learning Superintendent Kim Beaulieu and Coordinator Jon Yellowlees made a presentation to the Board about current band programming and possible approaches for expanding music programming throughout the school division. A band program is currently offered in schools in the east and west areas of the Division, but not in the north. As part of its commitment to

Borden, Rosthern, Duck Lake receive “upgrade” federal funding Maurice Vellacott, Member of Parliament for Saskatoon - Wanuskewin, on behalf of the Honourable Lynne Yelich, Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification, announced just over $70,000 in federal funding for three local communities under the Harper Government’s Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund (CIIF). "The Harper Government, through the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund, is continuing to support communities across Canada," said MP Vellacott on behalf of Minister Yelich. "These projects will create jobs, growth and long-term prosperity in these communities." Community facilities in Borden, Rosthern and Duck Lake will see upgrades as a result of the new funding. The Village of Borden will renovate the Borden Hall to make the facility wheelchair accessible, add a kitchen, change rooms and storage, and upgrade the roof. Funding in Rosthern will go towards the

purchase and installation of new compressors for the Jubilee Sports Arena’s artificial ice plant. The Town of Duck Lake will upgrade the community hall to improve wheelchair accessibility to the facility’s basement. The investments will help to create jobs and secure new economic opportunities while leaving an important legacy in the form of improved community infrastructure. "Thank-you to WD for the investment to upgrade our Community Centre," said Borden Mayor Dave Buckingham. "The funding will go a long way in upgrading our facility for present and future needs, increasing accessibility for seniors and people with disabilities and improving the facility for the preschool, dance club and other community organizations." "We are extremely pleased to receive this funding", said Rosthern Mayor Doug Knoll. "The compressors are necessary pieces of equipment and this ensures we will be able to get the ice in on schedule and offer programs to the commu-

nity this winter." "We would like to thank the Federal Government for their investment in our community," said Duck Lake Mayor Denis Poirier. "The wheelchair lift for our hall will benefit not only the disabled and limited mobility in our community, but will ensure that everyone has access to our facility." CIIF supports, on a costshared basis, repairs and improvements to existing community infrastructure accessible to the public. Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD) is delivering the Fund in Western Canada with an allocation of $46.2 million over two years. Since 2006, the Harper Government, through WD, has invested in job-creating small and medium-sized businesses, aerospace, marine and defence industries, and supported innovative entrepreneurs in pursuing emerging markets. By continuing to promote new economic opportunities, WD is helping to create jobs, economic growth, and long-term prosperity.

programming equity for all students, the Board had instructed administration to investigate equitable access to music/band programming throughout the Division. Beaulieu presented a report that detailed the number of students involved in the first year of band programming (Grade 5) and the number of students who remain in band until high school. The numbers drop off considerably after the early years of band. Beaulieu reported that currently 4% of high school students are involved in the band program. However, he said students who participate in band are highly engaged and are very happy with the program that is offered. Beaulieu and Yellowlees talked about a new music program initiative called Musical Futures, which brings a different approach to music and band instruction. The Musical Futures program is based on the belief that high levels of student engagement are achieved when learning is relevant, collaborative, self-directed, assessed on a regular basis and requires rigour. “We encourage our staff to take chances and try new initiatives. It just seems if a student is self-directed, then you will have much better results,” Trustee Cathy Taylor commented. Administration will continue to study the options for music/band programming and report back to the Board. We Day The Board approved a motion to support the “We Day” initiative, which is organized by the Free the Children organization. We Day will be held on Wednesday, February 27,

2013 in Saskatoon. We Day is a high-energy event designed to empower students to realize their potential to affect social change. The We Day event celebrates the commitment made by each school in attendance to take

action throughout the year on one local and one global issue. The costs to the school division will include transportation to the event and substitute teacher costs for the day. Kim Beaulieu will be the Board’s liaison for this event.

When Canada’s annual budget deficit came in bigger than expected at $26.2 billion recently, the news didn’t spark a sell-off in the markets or an emergency debate in parliament. But that doesn’t mean Canadians should be complacent about balancing the budget. When Ben Bernanke, the chairman of the United States Federal Reserve is nervously warning Congress that they face “a massive fiscal cliff of large spending cuts and tax increases” this coming January 1st, while Canadians shouldn’t confuse what’s going on south of the border with Ottawa’s dilemma, the need for more cuts in Canada is certainly real. The Harper government has taken some heat from the opposition for making so-called spending cuts. The truth is that spending has risen every year since the Conservatives took office, rising 30 per cent over the past six years. And Finance Minister Jim Flaherty, in his spring budget, forecast that number to rise to 42 per cent by time the next election rolls around in the spring of 2015. At $26.2 billion, Canada’s deficit last year was a noticeable improvement from $33.9 billion in 2010 and the record shortfall of $55.6 billion in 2009. All told, four consecutive deficits have pushed up our federal debt by $124.5 billion, and Flaherty expects the accumulation of red ink to reach $157.1 billion before the next election. All that new debt makes it tougher for Ottawa to pay for things that people want. Interest payments on the federal debt reached $31 billion last year, more than the entire combined budgets for unemployment benefits, maternity and parental benefits, the child tax credit, and the universal child care benefit. Unbelievably, that’s with the lowest interest rates in 50 years. What would happen if interest rates went up a percentage point or two? Multiply our federal debt, soon to be $600 billion, by one per cent, and you get $6 billion in additional interest costs. Multiply by two per cent, you get $12 billion. That’s more than the entire provincial budget of Saskatchewan. To be sure, the Americans have bigger problems: for every dollar the Canadian government spent last year, it collected over 90 cents in tax revenue. For every dollar the U.S. government spent, it brought in just 70 cents, up from 57 cents a year earlier. And while we’ve added $124.5 billion to our federal debt over the last four years, U.S. federal debt has jumped by $6.1 trillion – you read that number correctly – the U.S. government has borrowed 50 times as much money as Canada’s government has borrowed over the past four years. American and European politicians are learning, again, the hard way, that you can’t spend your way out of an economic downturn and you can’t borrow your way to prosperity. Here in Canada, the Harper government is trying a bit too gradually to tighten the spending tap, in hopes that a growing economy will bring enough new money into the treasury to balance the books by 2015. Fortunately, arrows are moving in the right direction. After plunging $12 billion to $103.9 billion in the wake of the financial meltdown in 2010, Canada’s federal income tax revenue reached a new record high of $119.3 billion last year, without any rate hike. Federal income tax revenue from business rose $1.7 billion to $31.7 billion last year, after Flaherty cut rates from 18 to 16.5 per cent, and then again to 15 per cent, proving that lower tax rates can help boost business activity. Not only did businesses pay more income tax, but the government saved $2.2 billion, paying out fewer unemployment insurance benefits as more Canadians found jobs. As taxpayers, we need to keep our politicians focussed controlling costs, keeping taxes affordable, and balancing budgets – the straight and narrow path that leads us far away from the fiscal cliff.

Many rural Saskatchewan residents may be wondering about all the fuss and bother over private liquor sales in the cities. Rural Saskatchewan, after all, has been the home to private liquor outlets pretty much since it’s been legal to sell booze in this province. But like most things in Saskatchewan politics, the issue is slightly more complicated than the debate on the surface suggests. Let us observe. Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) Minister Donna Harpauer announced last week that her Saskatchewan Party government would be allowing three full-service private liquor stores, two in Saskatoon and one in Regina. In one way, the news was expected and consistent with what Premier Brad Wall’s government believes in. In another way, it was also inconsistent with what he has said. The consistent aspect is that the philosophically business-minded right-wing Sask. Party believes wholeheartedly in business running things. Arguably, less philosophically consistent was Wall’s promise made to urban voters and the unions that a Sask. Party government would not sell government-owned liquor stores in the cities and larger towns. But by allowing “new” liquor stores to be privately run will be seen by many as good political compromise in which Wall doesn’t go back on his word not to privatize, but still stays true to his philosophical beliefs that the retail booze sales business should not be in government bought hands. Moreover, it would seem to make sense for the government to not have to pay the capital costs of building new liquor stores, money that could go to building roads or hospitals. The successful private sector bidders will have to build their own stores. Already, we have some 180 private rural outlets selling hard liquor in rural Saskatchewan. We also have private beer off sales in both rural and urban hotels and now urban wine stores. Having a few full-service private liquor stores would seem the next logical progression for a province growing and changing. But it’s also about here where what Wall, Harpauer and the Sask. Party are proposing gets murky when it comes to what may best serve the people’s interests. For starters, the new private liquor stores will be al-

lowed to keep longer hours, giving them a competitive advantage over government stores. In fairness, Wall has hinted SLGA store hours may change. But for now, the extra hours private stores will be open will be huge for their sales, especially given that they will also have huge pricing advantages because they will be able to set their own prices. The new private stores will get 16 per cent off SLGA prices, a better deal than the 15.3-per-cent reduction that

NEED TO

rural liquor outlets currently receive. And private stores will be able to bring in products not currently offered through the SLGA. (However, all liquor sales will have to subscribe to a “social reference” minimum price that prohibits giving away cheap booze.) Again, it can be argued that such measures are necessary for any private outlet to compete with governmentrun liquor stores. But given that the new stores won’t necessarily have to pay Saskatchewan Government and General Employee (SGEU) wages, they would already seem to have a built in advantage. Of course, some may

rightly argue that subsidizing wages of government workers who are doing the same work as others in the retail sector is precisely what’s wrong with government being in the retail liquor business. But what should also be noted about government-run liquor stores is they have been highly profitable, offering taxpayers income that offsets the costs of roads, hospitals and schools. Yes, we won’t be building government liquor stores. But will what taxpayers gain in capital cost savings be lost in revenues to private business? Private liquor stores may still be a good idea. But they may also come with a cost.

Dundee Wealth Management office opens in Warman

The world of financial planning can be confusing and challenging to most people at times. But, help has arrived with the completion of the new Dundee Wealth Management (DWM Securities Inc.) office in Warman. Robert Noel, who is a resident of Warman, is the principal at the new location at 532 Main Street West, directly across Central Street from Supervalu. Completing his B.A. in Sociology at the University of Saskatchewan, Robert earned his Certified Financial Planner (CFP) designation in 2001 and, along with his dedicated team of professionals, is committed to helping clients plan for their financial well-being. “I’ve been working in the financial industry since 1999 and continue to be focused on helping clients plan for and work towards their future goals and objective,” states Robert, who established his own team of associates in 2007. “We are committed to providing the best adobeRt Noel, ba, CFP® vice, services and products that an independent advisor can offer.” vestment advisor In addition to his work with cliWM ents, Securities Inc.

The company also ion ofworks GCIC together Ltd. with clients to provide solutions with Critical Illness Insurance, Disability Insurance, Long-term Care Insurance and Life Insurance. As a senior investment advisor, Robert and his staff work to ensure that each client’s needs are always placed in the forefront in all of the company’s planning processes. “We are up front in all of our dealings with our clients,” he adds. “Our number one goal is to ensure that our clients receive the assistance and guidance they need to feel confident in their financial plan going forward. Every client has different needs and expectations. In order to ensure these are met, we discuss in detail at the beginning of every new client relationship what those needs and expectations are and what is required from us in order to meet those needs.” Another key member of the team working alongside Robert is Cory Harder, who joined the firm in July of this year. Cory is a Martensville resident who convocated from the University of Saskatchewan in the spring of 2012 with a Bachelor of Commerce degree. He has passed the major courses in order to become an Investment Advisor and is awaiting his certification. Additionally, Cory will be acquiring his Life Insurance license before the end of 2012 and will be working alongside the rest of the team while achieving his Certified Financial Planner designation. Prior to university studies, Cory was a three-year veteran with the LaRonge Icewolves of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL). As a Client Relations Officer, Susan Stein’s role with the company is to provide clients with prompt, proficient and friendly service. Highly organized and definitely a people person, Susan has worked in the financial service industry for many years and joined the team in 2002 after moving back to Saskatchewan from Alberta. In

her spare time, she enjoys gardening, crafts, cooking, sports and spending time with family and friends. Originally from Winnipeg, Administrative Assistant Rick Dunlop entered the financial services industry in 1995 and has always taken great pride in providing superior service to clients. With the opening of Robert Noel’s Dundee Wealth Management office, it was Rick’s first responsibility to build and maintain the computer network system but his primary role, however, remains in client services and administrative support. Having successfully challenged the Life Licensing program, Rick will soon be a licensed insurance broker. Having a strong team that is knowledgable and approachable is essential, Robert says. “This is a large part of what makes us different. We firmly believe that if we work as a team, we can serve our clients’ needs more fully. Our clients feel comfortable in speaking with any member of our team who may be able to assist them in different situations.”

Madcap comedy showcases home-schooled student actors By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

T

he classic tale of Cyrano de Bergerac gets a swinging-60s twist in a new production by the Prairie Spirit Theatre Company. “A Nose for the News” is the fifth annual performance staged by the group, whose cast of actors consists entirely of home-schooled students within the Prairie Spirit School Division. The production features a dessert theatre format, and is set to take the stage at the Brian King Centre on Friday, November 23 and Saturday, November 24. Josh Ens portrays Cyrano de Bergerac, the tragically-romantic swordsman-poet whose oversized nose dooms him to solitude. In the original tale by Edmond Rostand, set in France in 1640, Cyrano unselfishly helps a rival win the heart of his true love by writing beautiful verses for his rival to recite. In this parody, set in a 1960s television station, Cyrano is trying to woo the lovely Roxanne, the newscast anchor. Cyrano would like nothing better than to be coanchor with Roxanne, but he’s burdened with an enormous honker that would certainly hurt the TV station’s ratings if he ever got on camera. The station owner, meanwhile, is trying to do exactly that - sink the business in order to collect insurance on the failed station. Mixed into the plot are other memorable characters, including a cooking show host who is obsessed with using peanut butter in every dish she prepares, an adorable weatherman who’s almost always wrong in his forecast, and a chronically-depressed clown. There’s just enough pathos to give the characters believability,

but the actors are more concerned with delivering the jokes in a way that connects with the audience. Whether they’re playing a hero or villain, the most enjoyable part of the acting experience for the students is getting that spontaneous reaction from the crowd. “It’s a challenging role, but I really enjoy it,” said Josh Ens. “When you’re the main character, people expect more from you and you have to work hard. But overall, it’s fun and I enjoy making people laugh.” This year, roughly half the cast is performing for the first time. For Levi Andres, one of the rookies in the club, the experience of being up on stage is a whole different experience from watching the performance. “I like the costumes and learning lines and being part of the group,” he said. “I think this is the best play yet. Certainly for me it is because it’s also my first one.” Nicholas Gilbey, one of the veterans in the cast, says he’s not nervous - yet. “I don’t get nervous until the people actually start coming in and filling up the seats,” he said. “But we also know that even if we forget a line or something, everybody else is there to help you out. If you just keep on going and improvise a little it all gets back on track pretty quick.” SaraLyn Andres says she’s glad to be playing the villain in the piece. “It’s more fun,” she said. “You get to step out of character and do stuff that you wouldn’t do in real life.” The Parent Crew includes: Shelley Gilbey, Teena Ens, Tammy Pike, Nichole Cara, Lorraine Hildebrandt, Margaret Andres, Lynne Martin, Arlene Epp, Alana Hyland, Karen Nosterud and Sherry Fehr.

Maguire concert features classic hits By TERRY PUGH

I

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

t’s a long way from Ireland’s rocky seaside cliffs and rolling green fields to Saskatchewan’s snow-covered prairie, but Stephen Maguire has no regrets about leaving his Emerald Isle birthplace to pursue a career in western Canada. “In many ways, it’s much the same,” said the accomplished musician and stage performer. “The people in Saskatchewan love music just as much as we do back home. Saskatchewan is really just Ireland with a different accent.” Maguire is fronting an 11-piece showband that’s set to take the stage in Martensville on Friday,

November 16 and Delisle on Friday, November 23. Both concerts feature the best music from the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. “There’s something for everyone,” said Maguire. “For older folks, it brings back memories. But what I’ve really noticed is how the music clicks for younger people as well. It opens up a whole new world for them when they hear it live.” Maguire was born and raised in Ireland, where music holds a special place in everyone’s lives. “My music definitely has an Irish stamp to it,” he admits. “I can’t help it. My father, Patrick Maguire, played in a band with Van Morrison, who was one of the greatest recording artists of his generation, as far as I’m concerned. So I came

from a household where we always had music all the time. And Irish music is special. There’s something about Celtic music that moves the soul..” Maguire has recorded in Nashville with some of the biggest names in the business, but he says he loves making his home in Saskatchewan and touring to smaller communities. “For me, the live shows are the best,” he said. “We spare no expense when we bring the circus to town. It has to be exceptional, because people want to have an amazing time.” Tickets for the event are available at the Martensville A&W and McNally Robinson booksellers in Saskatoon.

Funding provided for flood control initiatives Provincial flood control initiatives got a shot in the arm last week with the injection of additional funding. Ken Cheveldayoff, Minister responsible for the Saskatchewan Water Security Agency, announced an additional $500,000 for the Water Control Assistance Program, increasing funding for 2012-13 to more than $1.2 million. “Some areas of the province continue to deal with water-related issues as a result of record amounts of precipitation from the last few years,” Cheveldayoff said. “This additional funding will help communities and municipalities install and maintain infrastructure important to protecting peoples’ homes, livelihoods and the infrastructure that Saskatchewan people depend on every day.” “The Water Control Program provides up to 50 per cent of the costs of maintenance of flood control channels as well as of the cost of channel clearing,” Saskatchewan Conservation and Development Association

Executive Director Merlin MacFarlane said. “This additional $500,000 will go a long way to assist conservation and development associations and rural municipalities across the province ensure their works and channels are in good order.” One hundred and fourteen rural municipalities, nine conservation and development area authorities and one watershed association have been approved to share almost $700,000 in provincial grant funding for channel clearing in 2012. The majority of these associations were on the eastern half of the province, in the area hardest hit by the 2011 flood. The Water Control Program also provides support for maintenance of ditches and other flood control infrastructure. Approximately $520,000 from the Water Security Agency will support maintenance work by 72 conservation and development area authorities, four watershed associations and one urban municipality. Since 2007, the Water Security Agency has provided more than $5

million in funding to 180 rural municipalities, conservation area authorities and watershed associations for channel clearing and maintenance of flood control works. The program also has funding available for individuals to deal with erosion control. 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. This new agency brings together, for the first time, all of the major responsibilities related to water quality and quantity.

Residential building permits up Saskatchewan’s residential building permits increased by 79.1 per cent over September 2011 according to a report released recently by Statistics Canada. Overall, building permits in the province improved by 39.0 per cent, the third highest increase among the provinces. “Saskatchewan’s construction industry is extremely active right now,” Economy Minister Bill Boyd said. “On the residential front that demand is a combination of our increasing population and a strong economy that’s contributing to an increase of new homes.” Regina’s building permits jumped 225.0 per cent on a year over year basis, the highest increase among major Canadian cities. Saskatoon was also up by 19.1 per cent. “The level of construction has a huge impact on our overall economic progress,” Boyd said. “Today’s report is definitely a good indicator that our economy is moving forward, creating jobs and business opportunities in every corner of our province.”

Seniors granted rights under provincial rental rules The Government of Saskatchewan is enhancing the rights of seniors and providing additional protection for tenants. Amendments to The Residential Tenancies Regulations, 2007, will among other things, provide seniors residing in independent living facilities with the right to use the Office of Residential Tenancies to resolve disputes. This comes into effect on April 1, 2013. “Seniors’ independent living facilities are exempt from the current law and we could see no reason for that,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Gordon Wyant said. “This change puts them on equal footing with other rental properties.” The amended regulations also contain rules regarding fixed-term tenancies. Currently, a landlord does not have to notify a tenant about their plans for the property once the lease expires, such as whether they would be willing to continue renting or if the rent would increase. Under the new regulations, landlords are required to provide tenants with two months notice about their intentions and tenants are given one month to respond. The Residential Tenancies Amendment Act, 2012 will take effect November 15, 2012. Among the changes, landlords will have to belong to an approved Association of Landlords in order to increase rent for periodic tenancies more than once a year. Landlords who belong to an approved association can increase rent on their properties once every six months. The amended regulations will support this Act by designating the Saskatchewan Rental Housing Industry Association as an Association of Landlords. “Saskatchewan’s rental market is very tight, with vacancy rates extremely low in some cities,” Wyant said. “These changes will provide tenants with additional protection from facing the burden of large rent increases in a short amount of time.”

Breast cancer centre a lifeline for patients By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

W

hen Darlene Zwack of Dalmeny was diagnosed with breast cancer in September 21, the unexpected news hit her like a hammer. “I was in shock,” she said. “I kept thinking the doctor must have the wrong chart the wrong person. I’ve never been sick a day in my life.” But Darlene and her husband George are determined to do whatever it takes to beat the disease. Fortunately, the couple - who were awarded the Dalmeny Citizens of the Year honour earlier this year - will have a lot of allies as they head down the long journey to recovery. “The community has been so helpful and caring,” said Darlene in a recent interview. “Ever since I went in for surgery on October 16, I don’t think we’ve had to cook a thing. People have brought us food, flowers, quilts, you name it. We really appreciate everything.” That support extends to the professionals within the Saskatoon Health Region. Darlene said the staff at the Les and Irene Dube Centre of Care for Breast Health, which officially opened in Saskatoon City Hospital at the beginning of October - Breast Cancer Awareness Month - were “amazing” in helping her nego-

tiate the steps prior to her surgery. “It’s the most peaceful, professional, confident place you could possibly go,” she said. “The whole concept of having the breast health centre makes such a difference for someone who’s been diagnosed with the disease. I was taken in by the client coordinator and her assistant and they set up all the communication with all the doctors and the different departments. In one day, we met everyone involved from the pre-admission clinic to the surgeon and everyone in between. It was so comforting to understand what would happen and why.” Darlene Zwack said she wanted to share her story with others because she is grateful for the care she’s already received, and is confident the medical care professionals are doing whatever they can to restore her health. That message of hope is something she wants others to hear. “People need to know that if they get this diagnosis, it’s not the end of the world,” she said. “There are many people who are waiting to help you. They take you in and look after you.” She said she was amazed at how little pain she experienced in the wake of her mastectomy, a fact that she attributes to her surgeon’s skill. But the surgery marked the beginning of the journey,

Four weeks after the surgery, the pathology test results will be used to determine whether she takes chemotherapy or radiation, and the doses required. George Zwack participated in a Cancer Clinic orientation seminar at the Royal University Hospital while his wife

was recovering from surgery. He said the seminar was aimed at answering family members’ questions about the clinic, the treatments and the process in general. He said it was informative and has helped them prepare for the next step. “When you’re first told you have cancer, that’s the really

scary part,” he said. “It’s scary because you feel all alone. As you go through the process, you find out you’re not alone, and that there are lots of people that truly want to help you, and you find out information that also gives you strength and hope to keep going.” For Darlene, the past three

months have given her a new perspective on life. “Am I sitting on pins and needles?” she said. “Yes, I am. Am I worried? Yes. I would never have imagined last summer that I would be going through this. But I’ve never backed down from anything before, and I don’t intend to start now.”

The journey to overcome breast cancer - one woman’s story By DARLENE ZWACK

n September 21, 2012, I was told by our family doctor that the results had come in, and I have breast cancer. I was stunned. My first thought was: “Are you sure you have the right chart?” I could tell by the look of compassion on Doctor Robinson’s face that there was no doubt. For the next couple of days, my husband George and I felt like we were going around on one wheel. It really throws you a curve ball. We moved to Dalmeny six years ago, after retirement, to be closer to Saskatoon but not “in” Saskatoon, so we would be closer to the health care facilities we knew we would possibly need in our more senior years. I am 62 years old, and my husband George is 65. We never imagined we would be starting this soon. After many restless nights, and a bazillion thoughts going through our minds, we started to settle down. We had told our children and their families about this suspicious lump at the end of a lovely weekend during the first part of September, after celebrating George’s 65th birth-

day. They all were indeed shocked and concerned because as we all know, “Mom never gets sick.” I first had to contact Father I. Heanyi from our church. I had “unfinished business” that needed attention. I needed clarity, and I needed extra help. What a remarkable man. Thank you Father. You are a comfort. I embraced the idea of telling people. I felt I needed to do that. Consequently, from that thought pattern, I have “reacquainted myself with my brother, whom I had chosen to distance myself from. As the news spread, the phone calls and e-mails started coming in. People were worried and it was obvious that they cared. I have touched base with so many people in the past few weeks. Then, the pace of life got kicked up a notch for us. There were scans, tests, ultrasound, mammograms ordered. Contact came from the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency, information packages arrived in the mail. People called. My first meeting with my surgeon, Dr. Pam Meiers, made me nervous. As I waited for her, I prayed. My prayers were answered. In came the beautiful, professional, compassionate, gentle lady. She went

I often reflect on that first day, and my first encounter with the Breast Centre. I will never forget it. I had goose bumps when I walked through those doors.

Then she looked me right in the eyes and said: “I’m going to get you healthy. I have a plan, and this is what we’re going to do.” Those are the words I needed to hear. My response was “When do we start?” Within a short period of time, I was notified of my surgery date. I was ready.

Words like drains, staples, lymph nodes felt less scary. By the time I finished with the Pre-Assessment Center, which is where you go if you are having surgery at City Hospital, I was ready. The next day was surgery. I was there early and ready to go at 8:00 a.m. There again, the degree of professionalism, the strong, confident manner I was treated, made me confident. I was ready. Recuperation was pleasant. I had no pain, only minor discomfort. But all was forgotten when I spent my time taking in the view of Kinsmen Park from the window of my hospital room. Dr. Meiers was pleased with my surgery and how it all went. She told me that the results would be back in about 4 weeks. Then, after that they would know the plan for chemotherapy and possibly radiation. Until then, she said, take it easy – do the exercises – and heal. I was ready. Before leaving for home the next day, I had a visit from Imelda, who

checked in to see how everything was going, as well as the Home Care people, to make sure they had all their facts. I went home with one drain and dozens of staples. Not afraid, not nervous. I was ready. I had the pleasure of having two wonderful home care nurses, Linda and Barb, care for me. Before I knew it, seven days went by. Everyone had done their job so while at the Breast Care Centre Imelda and Connie removed the staples and drain. I was ready. I have felt worse mosquito bites! That brings me to where I am now: home and healing. Having been given the cancer diagnosis has made me examine my mind, my body and my soul. It makes you stop and think. I thought of myself as a good person – ready to help when needed and do what I could. But, when you start on this journey with cancer, you see life differently. You realize what a gift each day is, and just how grateful you are to have generous people like the Dube’s (and many others) who donated money to build the Centre of Care, which will help so many people. To all the people who have given so generously – thank you. I know I have just started on my healing path. But to this point it has been amazing. Our little town of Dalmeny, our new-found friends in and around the community, our family, our condo family, the phone calls, the cards, flowers, food, a quilt, comfort shawl and on and on – it’s all so comforting and appreciated. People care, and we thank you. Some of the questions that have been asked of me, which I never really thought about before are: What are your hobbies? All I could come up with are “work” and “worry.” What is your passion in life? I would have to say “people.” Never spent any time thinking about questions like that, but it brings me back to people. I enjoy people – visiting, listening, learning and spending time with people. What’s next on our “to-do”

list? To always keep in touch with our “curious” side. We always try and think ahead. To plan for the future and be prepared, rather than let the future catch us off-guard. We realize the next step in the aging process is a great need for care and less work commitment. We also realize there is always a 5-year or more waiting period for senior accommodations so we are always on the lookout for the next opportunity in our aging process. We attend meetings to gain information on what is going to be built in and around our community. One of our interests from one December to the next was to poke away with organizing the Dalmeny Children’s Christmas Carnival. This year’s carnival will be on Sunday, December 2 from 1 to 4:30 pm at the JJ Loewen Centre. Many, many volunteers help make it happen. It’s such a fun time for the whole family. So, to close my “cancer conversation,” I would just like to encourage everyone to really take the time to care for yourself. See your doctor for checkups. Get your mammograms, do your self-exams. Listen to your body. Listen to your doctor. October was Breast Cancer Month” and it has a whole new meaning for me now. I realize that I could possibly lose this battle. But currently, I feel that if I am to have cancer, the medical field, the doctors, the surgeons, and the staff of the Breast Care Centre are all poised and ready to help to the maximum. For that, I am so very grateful. I have not met my oncology doctor yet, and that team. I have not been through the doors at the Cancer Centre, but listening and visiting with people, I have been told they are “amazing”. Oh, oh. I have more goose bumps. With the support of our family and my husband, I will get through this. I have to. I have four of the sweetest grandchildren, ages 1 to 4, on the planet. I want to go to their grads, dance at their weddings, cook marshmallows over the campfire with them. I want to live, and I have a plan for getting through this.

Author outlines a year of eating locally-grown food By HILARY KLASSEN

hilaryklassen@gmail.com

A

uthor and food writer, Amy Jo Ehman never knew learning to spit would be involved in her food foraging adventures. She had designed a yearl-ong adventure in eating only locally grown foods which took her to various locales including Bruno, for their Cherry Festival. There she sampled various cherry related recipes and was roped into a cherry pit spitting contest. She laughs as she recounts her attempts and may not claim great success in spitting. But she can claim success as an author. Ehman won the Saskatchewan Best First Book Award for Prairie Feast: a writer’s journey home for dinner, the chronicle of her year eating local. The book contains 36 recipes, but is mainly a collection of stories and photos, highlighting the Saskatchewan landscape and culture. Ehman’s reading from Prairie Feast at the Dalmeny library last Wednesday revealed not only an interesting journey, but a creative and clever use of prose. The author grew up on a farm near Craik, but left her roots early to pursue a career in journalism. Recent years have drawn her back to the land and a growing interest in agriculture and food sources. The year-long journey began in 2005 before the 100 Mile Diet had become popular. Amy Jo had read about someone in Tucson who had chosen to eat only Arizona food. “I started thinking about the food we have here in Saskatchewan and how much food we produce,” she said. “Because of my farm background, I was kind of well-versed in agriculture and was aware of some of the new things being grown here like lentils and chick peas and I thought it would be good to investigate.” She made the decision in January and began researching and planning. She decided the year would start on the first day she ate something green from her garden. She knew they would need the whole summer to harvest and put away foods for the winter. Her husband John joined her in the venture. There was an environmental aspect to her decision as well. “It seemed crazy to me to have food flying all over the world and going by steamship from country to country, when we live at the epicenter of food-making right here. So why not focus on the foods that we have here in Saskatchewan.” At the time the farming economy in

Saskatchewan wasn’t doing that well, so this was another reason to support local produce. “I thought, wouldn’t it make sense for me to give my food dollars to a local farmer directly and help their family rather than have my money go to some big corporate entity that pays peanuts to farmers.” Ehman had three rules for this venture: they would only do this in their own home, not when they ate out, she would not apply it to beverages, and she would cheat now and again. “Cheating” meant adding cinnamon or apricots or raisins to a recipe like a Moroccan stew, leaving 95% of the dish made from products of Saskatchewan. You gotta love it when a rule is cheating. The goal was to celebrate local foods, not create a regime. Asked whether eating locally was more or less expensive, Ehman said that it probably came out even. Maybe she paid more at the farmer’s market than at the grocery store, but she compensated by cooking peasant foods like stew and not buying things like cookies and pizza. As Ehman started out, she was learning a lot about Saskatchewan food products and wanted to share this knowledge, so she started a blog, and also contacted the Star Phoenix to ask if she could write a column for them. She’s been writing for the newspaper since then, and recently began doing restaurant reviews for them. Is she still eating local? “Yes, but not 100%; now I will buy a banana and an orange and stuff like that. But when we sit down to eat the main thing in our meal is usually local: the meat, or the lentils or the pasta.” Amy Jo mentioned that any pasta or lentils packaged as a Canadian product were grown here. Prairie Feast was one of three finalists in 2011 for the Best Special Interest “books about food that aren’t cookbooks” award from Cuisine Canada

Amy Jo Ehman Book Awards in Toronto. Also that year it attracted attention south of the border as a finalist for Best Non-Fiction & Best First Book from High Plains Book Awards in Billings, Montana. Ehman found the whole experience very social as she made connections with vendors at the Saskatoon Farmer’s Market and was guided to many other helpful sources of information. “It was a very social type of situation with collaboration and sharing going on around it, unlike going to the grocery store which is a very solitary event. You have your list, and you only talk to the clerk who calls you by the name on your credit card. False friendship right!” she laughs. “It was a great activity in friendship and building relationships and community.” She said it takes more time to eat this way because you’re making things from scratch and you’d have to love cooking. To those interested in eating local, she says, “Start small, do it where you can. It requires a lot of commitment. But it’s very rewarding.” Amy Jo and John are convinced they are healthier for this diet.

ARIES

Youngsters test your patience this week, Aries. Don’t react. You’ll only make things worse. Persevere and calm will pervade. Trash becomes treasure.

TAURUS

Press on, Taurus, and pay those naysayers no heed. You will succeed. A romantic dinner for two gets the weekend off to a rockin’ start. Enjoy!

GEMINI

Gazette CLARK S CROSSING

Prepare for blastoff, Gemini. You get the green light on a project and all systems are go. Choose your team carefully. The wrong skill set could bring everything to a halt.

It’s all in the details, Cancer. Leave no stone unturned. An olive branch is extended. Take it, or risk a great loss. Finances improve dramatically. Opportunity rises. Milk it for all it’s worth, Leo. What appears to be a small favor might not in fact be so small. Do your homework before you say yes.

VIRGO

Efforts to go green wane as the pace picks up at home. Remember what is at stake, Virgo, and you will recover your resolve. An organization needs your support.

LIBRA

Plan ahead, Libra, and all will go well. Fly by the seat of your pants, and you will know it. Financial tips come from someone worth listening to.

SCORPIO

Know your limitations, work within them and you will go further than you ever thought possible, Scorpio. A gift from afar raises spirits all around.

SAGITTARIUS

Enough, Sagittarius. You may be accustomed to spreading yourself thin, but a loved one is not. Stop volunteering until your schedule is clear.

Buried explosives recovered from acreage near Martensville tpugh@ccgazette.ca

A

cache of explosives was uncovered by police at an acreage west of Martensville last week. The munitions were hidden underground for the last decade, according to Corporal Rob King of the RCMP. King said the Warman RCMP detachment was assisted by the RCMP’s explosives disposal unit (EDU), during an operation carried out on Tuesday, November 6. During the recovery operation, which took more than eight hours, the cache of explosives was dug up and removed from the acreage. “The explosives are believed to be stolen and have been hidden in the ground for at least a decade,” noted King. “The landowner had just been made aware of the items buried in the ground after the death of a family member.” King said approximately 60 kilograms of commercial and military grade explosives were recovered and safely disposed of at the scene. “The items were found buried in the ground in separate containers and covered an area of approximately 15 square meters in a remote wooded area of the acreage,” said King. “This seizure represents the largest of its kind in the province by the RCMP EDU this year.” The military demolition charges were functional and had been 2.25” manufactured durx 4.75”

ing World War II and are still used today for certain military applications. Those items have been returned to the Canadian Forces. King said while it’s not unusual for small amounts of WWII-vintage explosives or training bombs to turn up in rural locations, the scale of this cache is unprecedented. He added that while the explosives were potentially dangerous they were stored in a way that did not pose any immediate danger. “They were buried and sealed, and the detonators were stored separately from the explosives,” he said.

“Generally, in that state, they don’t pose a threat. However, when something is buried underground, there are still potential chemical reactions that could happen unexpectedly. There was a one in a million chance that something could have occurred but, fortunately, the cache was discovered and no longer poses any hazard.” King said the matter is still under active investigation by the Warman RCMP detachment and the Saskatoon GIS unit. Assisting in the matter were members of the Saskatoon Police Explosives Disposal unit.

Wolverines hit a wall in provincial 9-man football final Warman brings home silver medal in tough loss to Melfort By TERRY PUGH

T

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

he Warman Wolverines ran out of playoff miracles on Saturday, November 10, losing 53-26 to the Melfort Comets in the provincial 9-man high school football final. It wasn’t the result the Warman players, coaches and fans who braved the icy conditions in Melfort were hoping for. After overcoming the odds through the regular season and two playoff games, the Wolverines had their sights set on nothing less than the provincial crown, and it hurt to come so close and be denied. Still, it was a remarkable run for the team, winning the provincial silver medal in only the fourth year of the football program at Warman High School. “I’m very proud of these kids and what they’ve been able to accomplish this season,” said Wolverines head coach Tyler Scheidt after the game. “They did everything we asked them to do, and

they’ve learned so much and come so far. “Hats off to the coaching staff and the parents and volunteers too,” added Scheidt. “We have a lot of people from the community, including former players who pitched in and dedicated themselves to this team. They gave it their all and helped these boys get all the way to the final.” SAME SCRIPT, NEW ENDING It was deja-vu all over again after the opening kickoff, as the Wolverines had to climb out of an early hole. The Wolverines found themselves down by a touchdown during the opening minutes of their two previous playoff games against Foam Lake and Indian Head, In both the quarter-final and semi-final contests, the Warman defense held the line until the offense found its footing and rallied to outscore the opposition. But this time the script didn’t turn out quite so well because the Melfort team rewrote the ending. In their second straight appearance in the provincial final on their home field, the Comets were out to avenge last year’s loss to the Delisle Rebels, and they took advantage of every

opportunity that came their way. The Comets’ Nick Fagnou scored his first of two majors before the game was a minute old. The Wolverines were on the verge of answering back midway through the first quarter when an unfortunate fumble turned the ball over on the Comets’ goal line. Things went from bad to worse when one of Warman’s star players, Spencer Ulrich, went down with an injury and was lost for the rest of the game. Still, the Wolverines didn’t give up, and quarterback Logan Misskey capped off a successful drive with a 2-yard plunge into the end zone to even the score at 7-7 as time expired in the opening quarter. Melfort went to work in the second quarter, racking up 5 touchdowns, while Warman’s lone major came on a spectacular 35 yard pass and run play when Misskey connected with Nyle Segovia. Segovia repeated his performance with a 55-yard touchdown run in the late going of the 3rd quarter to make it 50-20, but by then Melfort had already staked out an insurmountable lead. The Wolverines kept pounding away, and actually outscored Melfort in the final quarter when Logan Misskey scored his second touchdown of the game on a 25 yard run to make it 50-26. Melfort capped off their scoring with a field goal that many fans, particularly those

rooting for the Wolverines, thought had actually sailed wide of the uprights. But the Comets were definitely a force to be reckoned with and showed they deserved the win. HELDS HELD HIGH The Warman squad played with emotion, but never let it get the better of them, even when they fell behind. “I thought we actually played better in the fourth

quarter than the opening quarter,” said Scheidt. “It was tough to have to keep fighting uphill all the time. We gave up a big play on the opening scrimmage, and we turned the ball over four times. If you’re in the provincial final and you’re playing the team that turns out to be the provincial champs, you can’t help them.” Scheidt said while the loss was disappointing, the bitter taste won’t last forev-

er. “After a couple of hours, when the burns heal a bit, I’m sure we’ll look back and reflect that what this team accomplished is truly outstanding,” he said. “It’s a tribute to the players, especially the Grade 12 guys who’ve just played their last game in the red and black Wolverine uniform. We’re proud of every one of them and we wish them all the best in the future.”

Late bomb to Bryant finishes Roughriders’ season Well that’s all she wrote. Like the pop of a balloon, the 2012 Saskatchewan Roughriders’ season came to an abrupt and devastating end Sunday afternoon in the CFL Western Semifinal in Calgary. It was a lastminute 36-30 loss to the rival Stampeders which sent them to the Western Final at B.C. and sent the Riders home. It’s still too painful to relive, but I suppose we have to. In a quarterback battle of Darian Durant and Drew Tate, both teams wanted to get the jump early but it was scoreless until there was 0:02 left in the opening quarter when the Riders opened the scoring with a Sandro Deangelis field goal.

RIDER INSIDER ROD PEDERSEN

Voice of the Riders Roughriders Radio Network

However from there, the Stampeders took over and never really looked back. The Riders held the lead briefly twice more, but it literally lasted for only a few seconds. Blunders on special teams and defence ultimately cost them the game. With 0:47 to go and the Riders up 30-29, Tate launched a 68-yard touchdown bomb to Romby Bry-

ant to give Calgary the winning points. BOOM! Done. And that’s the season. Thrilling ending, but another devastating way to lose at McMahon Stadium for Canada’s Team. “It’s been a tough place for us lately,” admitted Durant, who threw for 453 yards and four touchdowns. “Give Calgary credit, they’re

a good team. We made too many mistakes and ultimately gave them the game.” Yes, he’s right. We all hoped the playoffs would be a brand new season and the teams would be equal but we were just fooling ourselves. The young Riders shot themselves in the foot time after time and a coverage breakdown led to the last-minute touchdown to break their back. Meanwhile the veteran Stamps never really seemed out of control of the game. “That’s the thing about

football; sometimes its out of your hands and you hope people step up and make plays,” Durant continued. “Calgary did. Calgary pretty much played a mistake-free game and that’s why they won.” Right now we’re in a holding pattern. It’s sickening to look ahead to next season because there’s a long, cold winter staring at us before that. And it feels too soon to look back and reflect on the 2012 season because we weren’t ready, nor prepared, for it to end. “We had a good win there but we let it slip it away,” said Rider coach Corey Chamblin, with a comment we’ve heard before this season. “Those aren’t the things that you want to remember at the end of your season. There’s a lot of pride there and a lot to build off for next year. I’m proud of the effort from this young team.” He had on a cheerful expression but he had to be devastated inside. Chamblin assured us his team would be ready come playoff time and although at times they were, they didn’t play a complete game when it counted. “We gotta be disciplined,” Chamblin continued. “We talked about playing smart and tough but we didn’t play smart in some positions. “I thought we brought this team a long way from what we had. We retooled the whole roster. We got some stars there and I think we’ll be a contender next year.” Next year. Next Year Country! That’s a phrase we used to hear all the time around here when seasons ended too soon. This time tough, there’s a sense of faith in Chamblin in this province. At least there should be. Stop for a minute and consider where this team was one year ago and where it is now. Massive improvement. It’s just hard being patient for the baby steps when you remember where this team was between 2007 and 2010. They’re on their way back there.

Chiefs looking forward to return of veteran leader Captain Andre Lalonde set to return following Hilltops’ national football championship victory By TERRY PUGH

T

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

here’s been a big hole in the Delisle Chiefs lineup so far this season. But that’s all about to change this week, when Andre Lalonde, the star running back with the Saskatoon Hilltops, dons his Chiefs uniform emblazoned with the “C” and takes his place on the roster. Lalonde was named the team’s Captain earlier this fall, even though he has yet to play a game. An all-star defenseman, Lalonde was one of the team’s Assistant Captains during the Chiefs’ record-setting winning streak last season. “It will be good to have Andre back in the lineup, no question,” confirmed Chiefs’ coach Dave Norris. “We’re definitely missing him because he’s one of the top defensemen in the league, so we’re missing 20 minutes right there when he’s on the ice every game. He’s big and strong and good on the puck both offensively and defensively, and he brings a real strong leadership quality to the dressing room.” Lalonde was one of the key ingredients in the Saskatoon Hilltops’ come-from-behind 2321 victory over the Langley Rams in BC last weekend. Now that football season is over,

Lalonde can devote himself to his winter job. Norris said getting the Captain back in the lineup is just one of the pieces of the puzzle that the Chiefs are working on. The others include finetuning the playbook and getting the rookies onside when it comes to knowing their roles and positions. “We have only 7 veterans in the lineup right now, and about 15 or 16 rookies,” said Norris. “So when you have such a young team you’re going to do a lot of little things wrong, and that’s what we’re looking to correct. It will take a bit of time for the team to gel, but we’re not worried. It will come.” It’s almost there already, in fact. The Chiefs may not be at the top of the standings, but they’re not out of the mix either. In their last four games, they’ve won two and lost two, and the margin of victory in all cases is one or two goals. ONE WIN, ONE LOSS The Chiefs beat the Regina Capitals 6-5 in a shootout on Sunday, November 11 at home, while losing a close 5-3 game to the Westleys on Tuesday, November 6 in Saskatoon. The loss to the Westleys was a tough one to take, since the Delisle squad dominated in almost all aspects of the game except goaltending. “Their goaltender, Jay Okrainetz, played a heck of a

Defenseman Justin Haugen ties up Westleys forward Jon Evans in front of Chiefs goaltender Keith Boon great game,” said Norris. “He didn’t give us any rebounds. We had 50 shots on net, but just couldn’t seem to bury it when we needed to.” The Chiefs outshot the Westleys 50-32. Keith Boon was solid between the pipes for Delisle, but didn’t get the support he needed much of the time around the net. Delisle goalscorers were Josh Murray, Dylan Kochan and Devin McGonigal, while Chris Prychak scored twice while Brandon Wicks, Scott Yaremko and Jon Evans added

singles for the Westleys. In the game against the Capitals, Delisle goal-scorers during regulation time were Dustin Bezugly, Stacy Campbell, Derek Pronk, Dylan Kochan, and Tanner Olson. Devin McGonigal and Tanner Sobkowicz scored in the shootout. The Chiefs play three home games in a row this week, hosting the Saskatoon Royals on Wednesday, November 14, the West Central Rage on Saturday, November 17 and the Rebels on Sunday, November 18.

The Saskatoon Blades are putting a whole new meaning to the team slogan of ‘Bleed Blue’. The Blades have announced a renewed partnership with Canadian Blood Services, bringing back the Live-saving Hat-Tricks promotion. The partnership will give hockey fans an opportunity to get in on the action by scoring their own ‘blood donation hat-trick’ this season. To participate, community members need to visit a blood donor clinic in Saskatoon three times between now and May

tween our club and Canadian Blood Services. As an organization, this is something we really believe in,” says the Saskatoon Blades Director of Business Operations John Brodsky. “Giving blood is very easy to do and in the end it helps save lives. There are great prizes up for grabs and we hope that inspires many new donors this year.” As a unique twist on the promotion, the Blades and Canadian Blood Services will also be naming a ‘Rookie Of The Year’. If you’re a firsttime visitor to a Canadian

Blood Services’ clinic through this promotion, you will automatically be entered to win a Blades jersey. “It can take as many as five blood donors to help one cancer patient or one person undergoing heart surgery,” says Canadian Blood Services Community Development Coordinator Moira Kohlenberg. “Imagine if all 11,000 fans at a game at Credit Union Centre donated just one time, that’s roughly the same amount of blood we need to collect in Saskatoon to meet patients’ needs for five months.”
