38-year-old woman from Warman and her 17-yearold daughter were injured in a single-vehicle rollover on Highway 11 south of Warman on Thursday morning, November 22. Both patients were transported to Royal University Hospital by MD Ambulance. The girl had reportedly been ejected from the vehicle during the rollover and sustained serious injuries. Road conditions at the time of the accident were extremely icy and treacherous. Freezing rain the night before left a layer of ice on the highway, which was aggravated by snowfall through the morning. According to Warman RCMP Sgt. Warren Gherasim, the mishap occurred shortly before 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, November 22. A southbound Honda Element SUV left the highway and rolled into the west ditch at the curve near Clark’s Crossing Road (Town-

ship Road 381). First responders and Warman Fire Department, as well as paramedics from MD Ambulance, were also called to the scene. “Police are investigating the possibility that the passenger was not wearing a seat belt,” stated Gherasim. “Alcohol does not appear to have been a factor. Police are examining whether or not the vehicle speed may have been too fast for the winter road condi-

tions.” MD Ambulance spokesperson Troy Davies said drivers need to use extra caution when roads are bad. “The roads and highways are extremely icy right now, and we have had several calls for vehicles that have slid off the highways into ditches,” said Davies. “Please drive with caution.” Across the province, RCMP responded to 38 traffic inci-

Martensville ‘Curls for Cancer’ fundraiser set for December 4 A Martensville fitness centre is stepping up to the plate in the fight against cancer by designating Tuesday, December 4 as “Curls for Cancer” day. Rejean and Carly Lepage, owners of Wrench Fitness, will be donating $10 to the Saskatoon Cancer Centre for each and every person that works out at the facility on Tuesday, December 4 between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. They are inviting their clients to make matching donations. In addition, they’ll be donating 100 per cent of the sales from their protein shakes on that day, as well as holding a silent auction with items donated by other local businesses. All the funds from the silent auction will also go toward the Cancer Centre. The “Curls for Cancer” name refers to a weight-lifting exercise to build up biceps. The fundraising day is just the first of several events planned for the coming year aimed at raising funds for the Cancer Centre, according to Rejean and Carly Lepage. It’s their way of showing support for people who are battling cancer.

“Cancer will affect almost everyone, in some way, at some time in their lives,” said Rejean Lepage. “Be it a friend, neighbor, or family member. Cancer not only affects those that are fighting it, but everyone they know as well.” Lepage said he lost a “really great friend to cancer over a year ago,” and almost lost the best man at his wedding to the same disease. “We also know others who are currently battling with cancer and a few who are just beginning too,” he said. “We want them to know that they are not alone.” Carly Lepage said the money is being raised for cancer resea3rch, prevention and treatment. “We plan to raise money throughout the year to present to the Saskatoon Cancer Centre,” she explained. “We invite everyone to come to Wrench Fitness on Tuesday, December 4, have a workout and a protein shake, and help in the fight against cancer. We look forward to working to raise money that will stay in Saskatchewan, and with your support on Curls for Cancer day you can help us build muscle to fight cancer.”

dents stemming from ice-covered roads. According to Sgt. Paul Dawson of RCMP ‘F’ Division, the vast majority of traffic-related complaints occurred in the south – near Regina, Moose Jaw, Swift Current and Estevan. He said there were several vehicles that went off the road and into the ditch, as well as numerous incidents of “unsafe passing of a vehicle in extremely poor road conditions.”

Youth arrested after gun threat A Rosthern High School student is facing numerous charges after RCMP responded to a complaint he allgedly brought an imitation handgun to the school on Wednesday, November 21 and had threatened other students with it. The student was arrested at the school by Rosthern RCMP and the weapon was seized. Further investigation revealed that the weapon was pointed at students in the school and, at that point, the gun was believed to be real. The weapon turned out to be an imitation air pistol. The Criminal Code defines an imitation firearm to be considered real if it is used in the commission of an indictable offence and is believed to be a real handgun. The 16-year-old male student has been charged with two counts of pointing a firearm, using an imitation firearm in the commission of an indictable offence, assault with a weapon, two counts of uttering threats, and breach of a Youth Sentencing Order under the Youth Criminal Justice Act. The accused was remanded into custody on November 23 and was to appear in Provincial Court in Saskatoon on November 26 for a bail hearing.

Prairie Spirit SD receiving mid-year funding to help with growing enrolment By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

Prairie Spirit School Division (PSSD) is receiving an additional $659,600 in funding from the provincial government. PSSD is one of eight high-growth school divisions throughout the province which are experiencing significant student enrolment increases. The additional funding is aimed at ensuring the school divisions have enough classroom space and educational services for new students. Provincial education minister Russ Marchuk said the funding increase is just part of the government’s response to the enrolment increase. The government is also allocating $800,000 to ensure 40 to 50 relocatable classrooms are on-site and ready for students at the beginning of the 201314 school year. “Today, we are responding to the challenge of growth in our school system,” said Marchuk when the funding was announced on Monday, November 26. “We heard from the school divisions that they have challenges given the unprecedented growth Saskatchewan is experiencing. This includes funding to provide education services and space for new students.” Eight school divisions in high growth areas of Saskatchewan together will receive an additional $6.6 million in mid-year funding. Saskatoon, Martensville and Warman communities represent more than 50 per cent of

the total provincial enrolment growth of almost 2,300 students. The Saskatoon School Division is receiving $2,605,200 in additional funding, while St. Paul’s Catholic School Division will receive $1,752,900. The other seven school divisions include Lloydminster, Prairie Valley, Regina, Saskatoon, South East Cornerstone, St. Paul’s Roman Catholic and Sun West. While the school division operating funding for 2012-13 is based on divisions’ prior-year enrolments, that funding arrangement is no longer appropriate, according to Marchuk. “Today we have a new reality where some school division are seeing large enrolment increases from one year to the next,” he said. Many school divisions, including PSSD, have been advocating changes to the funding formula for education to reflect the growth in enrolment. The Saskatchewan Education Ministry has developed a method to tie funding increases to enrolment growth. The eligibility criteria for the formula includes: • An increase of 40 full-time equivalent students at school division and one per cent overall • An increase of 30 at individual school and average of 2.45 full-time equivalent students per grade According to the province, “this scenario provides funding for base instruction, suppports for learning, intructional resources and transportation.”

CHRISTMAS CRAFT FAIR

Marlene Matthews of Langham displays her Christmas handicrafts at the annual Langham Christmas Craft Fair held at the Affinity Credit Union Hall on Saturday, November 25. The event is one of the biggest in the community, according to Langham Recreation Director Cori Waldner.

TERRY PUGH | CLARK’S CROSSING GAZETTE

City council awarded the contract for the new 10,000 square foot building at its meeting on Tuesday, November 20. The contract amounts to approximately $2.5 million, not including landscaping and other miscellaneous costs such as a sprinkler system. The total price tag for the building and grounds will likely be in the neighbourhood of $3 million. Preliminary work is expected to begin shortly. The new City Hall will be located on municipallyowned land at the corner of 1st Avenue South and 1st Street South near the existing Civic Centre. Funding

for the new facility was approved by Martensville City Council at a meeting last May and the design was finalized in mid-October. The building, which will house the administrative offices for the city, brings all departments under one roof. Currently, administrative offices are located in three separate buildings in Martensville, often creating inconveniences for residents and staff alike. Bringing the departments together in a single building is long overdue, according to many councilors. The new city hall will be large enough to house the current staff and the projected needs of the mumicipality five to ten years into the future. It is also designed to accommodate an expansion at a future date. The building was designed by the firm of Maurice Soulodre Architect Ltd. A total of 11 bids were submitted for the project. Gabriel Construction’s bid was the lowest, coming in at $2.25 million (plus GST), with an estimated completion time of 300

days. The bids were reviewed by a committee that included the architect, Maurice Soulodre, Martensville Mayor Kent Muench, councillors Terry Kostyna and Bob Blackwell, City Manager Scott Blevins and Martensville building inspector Chris Gates. The contractor’s bid included the use of a Martensville-based subcontractor for the foundation’s pilings. Construction on the foundation, with the piles and grade beams, will begin in the next few weeks and is expected to continue through the winter. Blackwell said the building is well-designed and efficient. “It will make things a lot better for everyone,” he explained at the Martensville City Council meeting November 20. “It’s going to be nice not just for the residents of Martensville, but also for the employees who will be coming to work there everyday. It’s got a lot of room and it will be able to accommodate all the departments under one roof.” Muench agreed. “It’s definitely a positive thing,” he said.

Credit union slides in with donation to new playground Langham Kin Club reaches fundraising goal of $50,000 By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

A $5,000 donation from Affinity Credit Union has helped the Langham Kin Club reach its fundraising goal of $50,000 for a new playground in the community. “It’s wonderful to have the credit union step up and help get our fundraising effort over the top,” said Darcey Bomok, treasurer of the Langham Kin Club. “This is going to be a huge boost for the kids and the families in this town.” The cheque for $5,000 was presented to Bomok by Affinity Credit Union delegates Evelyn Kasahoff and Donna Epp at the annual Langham Christmas Craft Fair last Saturday. The new playground is slated to be built on municipally-owned land near the soccer pitches on the west side of Langham, close to the new residential subdivision. Construction will begin in the spring and will be done by volunteer labour, according to Bomok. “The only playground we have right now is in the elementary school yard,” said Bomok. “So that makes it difficult for the younger children who aren’t old enough to go to school yet. It’s also quite a distance away from the new area of town. So we thought it was necessary, with all the new families with young children moving to town, to put something in that new neighbourhood.” Bomok said the Kin Club in Langham has been

fundraising for the playground project since the group got started three years ago. “It’s been a long process and a lot of work,” she said. “But it’s definitely worth it.” Evelyn Kasahoff, a delegate for the Langham district of Affinity Credit Union, said the donation is part of the financial institution’s community development program. “The Langham district is divided into several subdistricts,” explained Kasahoff. “And we each get a certain amount of money that goes

back to community projects. So our Langham district had about $4,700 earmarked for this area. We wanted to give it to a project that would benefit the entire community, and this proposal certainly met that criteria.” Kasahoff said the Affinity Credit Union head office topped off the donation to bring it up to an even $5,000. Cori Waldner, Recreation Director for the Town of Langham, said the project will be a “huge boost” to the young families in the community.

Record month for retailers Saskatchewan retailers saw another record month of sales, with retail sales rising 6.4 per cent in September of 2012 over last September according to a report released by Statistics Canada this week. It was the second highest percentage increase among the provinces. “Saskatchewan retail sales continue to trend upward in 2012,” Economy Minister Bill Boyd said. “Our strong economy is giving consumers confidence, and as a result, they are in a buying mood.” On the national front, retail sales were up only 1.8 per cent on an annual basis. “Strong economic performance in the retail sector is important to our growth,” Boyd said. “2012 has been a very good year for our economy with wages continuing to rise, job opportunities being created, and Saskatchewan families having the financial ability to make purchases which contribute to a higher standard of living.”

Harper and Flaherty don’t have a revenue problem By Gregory Thomas, Canadian Taxpayers Association

Canada’s credibility as a money manager took a beating recently when federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty cried poor and forecast four years of bigger-than-expected deficits, with no balanced budget until the 2016-17 fiscal year. It took another pounding three days later when the Prime Minister announced he intends to balance the budget before the next election. If the election goes ahead as planned in May 2015, Stephen Harper is basically saying he intends to balance the books by the end of the 2014-15 fiscal year. This is two years sooner than his finance minister expects and the same year Flaherty is forecasting a deficit of $8.6 billion. “These things aren’t written in stone,” Flaherty explained to Bloomberg News. “The numbers will change.” Certainly Flaherty’s balanced-budget target isn’t set in stone: it’s been moved from next year to 2015 and now to 2017. And if the date’s not set in stone, Flaherty’s actual deficit forecast is set in quicksand: from a modest shortfall of $300 million in 2015, predicted in the June budget right after last year’s election, to the gaping $8.6 billion hole revealed in mid-November. The only number that is set in stone is $124.5 billion – the amount Flaherty has added to the federal debt in the last four years. And if the minister and the finance department are to be believed, that number will balloon to $177.4 billion by 2017. The Prime Minister inexplicably blamed a shortfall in taxation. He told reporters “revenue is obviously somewhat down in recent months because of the recent slowing of the global economy.” And the PM’s analysis has echoed around the globe: “sinking federal revenues,” “global economic weakness that has cut into tax revenues,” “lower tax revenues for Ottawa,” “falling revenues slowing deficit reduction” – you get the picture. Those darned inadequate tax revenues. When tax revenues plunge unexpectedly – as they did in 2008 and 2009 – fiscal trouble follows: government needs to make payroll, mail out Old Age Security cheques, keep the navy afloat and cover the interest payments on our massive debt. Federal revenue fell $6.4 billion in 2008 and $14.5 billion in 2009. With not enough surplus to cushion the fall and rising spending, Ottawa’s deficit in just those two years ballooned to $61.3 billion. But here’s the problem with Mr. Harper’s story: revenues jumped $18.5 billion in 2010 and $8.1 billion last year, hitting a record of $245.2 billion. And in recent months? Revenues have continued to rise, up $3.4 billion in just the five months between April and August of 2012. Income taxes? Up. Business taxes? Up. GST? Gas taxes? Employment Insurance taxes? Excise taxes? Up, up, up and up. So if revenues are going up and not going down, why is the deficit going up and not going down? The answer, of course, is that spending is skyrocketing. The same week that Jim Flaherty was raising his deficit forecast, Conservative MPs were fanning out across Canada, handing out cheques with that borrowed money: money to pay for new snowmobile trail grooming equipment, new municipal tennis courts and curling rinks, money for corporate welfare for a gluten-free bakery and money to support Canada’s pet-food industry. In fact, if Jim Flaherty’s newest fiscal forecast turns out to be correct, federal revenues will shatter last year’s record and set a new one of $254.4 billion this year. If Ottawa had simply managed to freeze spending where it was before the financial meltdown in 2008, instead of embarking on a massive spending spree, we would be sitting on a $25 billion surplus this year, not bracing for a $27.2 billion deficit. No cuts, no layoffs, no austerity measures: just a request to forego annual increases in wages, benefits and pension entitlements, a pause in the growth of the pork-barreling and the corporate handouts, until Canadians and the Canadian economy could get on their feet again. It’s time for the Prime Minister and his finance minister to stop searching for lost revenue and do some soul-searching instead.

Provincial Politics

tive Saskatchewan Party only solidified. Really, this was the dawning of what is often referred today as the “new Saskatchewan.” Fast-forward to today and you are likely hearing a lot about that new Saskatchewan – especially in the context of several recent Sask. Party policy changes. Those would include simplifying the labour laws to the liking of private employers, the privatization of Information Services Corp. (ISC), private liquor stores in the cities and – most recently – changes to the liquor regulations that treat drinking as more of a business opportunity than something in need of policing through massive restrictions. But it is the latter liquor law changes where the new Saskatchewan may be on a collision course with the old Saskatchewan that still tends to be rather conservative in its values. For this reason, it will be worth watching rural Saskatchewan’s reaction to these changes. For starters, it can be argued that all too many of the SLGA changes are aimed at the urban audiences. These would likely include things like serving alcohol in spas (most of which are the cities) and the ability to bring your own wine

to restaurants (which would also seem to cater to urban clientele). Admittedly, other SLGA changes will be more applicable to the smaller towns and cities. The Sask. Party government is doing away with restrictions requiring establishments to also provide sleeping accommodations. It is for this reason that rural pubs have been located in hotels, rather than function as stand-alone bars you see just across the border in Montana and North Dakota. While this change that will be applauded by many, some rural hoteliers will likely be less pleased. In the cases of smaller communities, it may mean the demise of the local hotel, which would be the demise of a business critical to many communities. Another liquor board change worth monitoring is the one that will allow limited stripping in bars. Many rural hotel/bar owners might see this as a great way to create traffic for their establishments. But with rural Saskatchewan generally older and more socially conservative, it will also challenge what’s been considered acceptable in many rural communities. In fairness, it might be wrong to suggest that rural residents – who have become very good at adapting to change and have often led change – will be any less willing to adapt that city residents. Nevertheless, it may be a good measure of exactly how much Saskatchewan has changed.

Reader Opinions

Time for Conservatives to replace Indian Act

Hundreds of thousands First Nations people live in Canada and they deserve better than to be shackled by the failed colonial and paternalistic policies of the Indian Act, which has helped deny them their rights, fair share in resources, and fostered mistrust and created systemic barriers to self-determination and success. First Nations have been adamant that we need to move beyond it, yet the government has so far refused to get the ball rolling. The Indian Act is more than 136 years old and touches every aspect of life of First Nations. First Nations need the approval of the Minister to pass bylaws. It puts so much red tape around economic development

that it often doesn’t happen. The Act is so intrusive on reserve residents’ lives that they cannot even write a will without the minister’s approval. Yet, as Prime Minister Stephen Harper has rightly said, the Act has deep roots and cannot simply be abolished. For decades governments of all stripes have allowed this problem to fester. Now all parties have a chance to take real leadership on the problem. I have a motion before the House of Commons compelling the federal government to work with First Nations on a nation-to-nation basis on a plan to replace the Indian Act with modern agreements

based on rights, responsibilities of the Crown, and the original Treaty relationship. With a deadline and a process, we can finally begin to resolve the many long-standing economic and social inequities that plague First Nations communities in Canada. Yet the Conservatives, including MP Maurice Vellacott, said they would vote against this progress by opposing the motion. They say they want to change the status quo, but once again, this is just words. We cannot continue to put this off. Please tell Mr. Vellacott to vote for change. Bob Rae, Leader Liberal Party of Canada

For the longest time, rural Saskatchewan was far ahead of the rest of province when it came to political trends. The shift began in the mid-1990s when we first began to see the expansion of the oil sector and talk of new potash mines. But mostly, it was driven by a change in the mindset of agriculture. With the demise of the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool as a true co-operative, farming become agri-business. Farming operations expanded as country elevators disappeared. It was also about this time that we saw the last of the great farm rallies and protests demanding more government subsidization. Meanwhile, challenges to the Canadian Wheat Board’s authority as a single-desk seller moved beyond the radical fringe of the right, trying to deliberately defy the law by driving their trucks over the U.S. border. Coupled with the greater impact of farm implement manufacturing and the influence of the oil and gas sector, rural voters began to take on a more free-enterprise outlook. Even traditional areas of NDP support around Yorkton – the rural seats once known as red square – abandoned the NDP for political alternatives. The demand for better roads and Internet service to meet new economic needs was often not answered by urban-dominated NDP governments. And as NDP MLAs failed to satisfy rural voters’ needs, support for the right-wing alterna-

Domestic disputes keep RCMP busy leading up to holidays Submitted by Sgt. Warren Gherasim Warman RCMP Detachment

Submerged Trailer On November 19th at 12:40 p.m. police were dispatched to a call of a vehicle that had left the roadway at Lynne Rd. and the 33rd Street extension, west of Saskatoon. Police arrived to find a truck and trailer that were submerged in a dugout at that location. The driver of the vehicle reported that he was traveling on a seasonal road when the road apparently ended without warning. He stopped the truck and trailer on some ice at which point the weight of the vehicle became too much for the ice and it broke, sending the vehicle into the water below. No charges are being laid. Single Vehicle Rollover On November 22nd at 9:30 a.m. police responded to a call of a single vehicle rollover collision on highway 11 south of Warman. Police located a a Honda SUV overturned in the ditch. The female driver had to be helped out of the vehicle. A 17 year old female passenger was ejected during the collision and suffered injuries

which required hospitalization. The two females were mother and daughter. A 37 year old Warman woman was the vehicle driver. Road conditions were icy at the time of the collision. Police believe the collision was caused by speeds too fast for the road conditions. It is also believed that the female passenger was not wearing her seat belt. Charges are pending.

Impaired M’ville Driver On November 24th at 1:00 a.m. police observed a male walking towards a vehicle in the parking lot of a licensed establishment on Centennial Dr. S. in Martensville. The man appeared unsteady on his feet, but before police arrived at the vehicle the man had gotten inside and drove away. Police followed the vehicle and observed erratic driving. When police activated emergency lights the vehicle continued driving and did not stop. The vehicle was followed to a driveway in front of a residence on 1st St. S. in Martensville. Police approached the man who was driving and observed symptoms of impairment by alcohol consumption.

The man was arrested for impaired driving and taken to the Martensville Detachment where he supplied samples of his breath. A 55 year old Martensville man was later released on charges of impaired driving and having a blood alcohol level in excess of the legal limit. The man is scheduled to appear in court on January 29th, 2013. His driver’s licence was suspended for 90 days pursuant to Provincial legislation.

Shoplifting Trio In Warman On November 21st at 6:55 p.m. police received a call from a retail business in Warman that a woman had attended at the store and advised that she was ill and required assistance. While the woman was being assisted by store staff, at least one other person in the store left the premises with undetermined merchandise. After the woman left the premises a quantity of merchandise that had been removed from the shelves was located in a bin near the door. Store employees believe that there were two non-white females and a non-white male working together to distract employees

mestic dispute between a step father and daughter at a residence in Delisle. Police determined that both subjects had been drinking when an argument followed. The daughter allegedly slapped the stepfather and broke his glasses, the stepfather then punched the girl in the face. Neither subject was injured. Police arrested a 37 year old man and a 19 year old woman, both for assault. The man was held in police custody for a short while. Both subjects were released on documents to appear in court on a single charge of assault, each. Alcohol was a factor in this incident.

hey had me at Under the Boardwalk; Stephen Maguire and his eight piece band, that is. Playing in Martensville, the group delighted the crowd when their Memory Lane tour appeared at the North Ridge Centennial Community Centre recently. Maguire and his band demonstrated considerable talent taking us back to classics from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. Under the Boardwalk, the fabulous hit from the 60’s, had someone dancin’ with his baby at the back of the hall. If you weren’t dancing, your toes were tapping to this classic by the Drifters, which took on a bit of a Reggae beat. I’ll Be Seeing You was performed Sinatra style, filling the room with the inimitable big band sound and featuring the brass. What’s amazing is that only eight instruments were able to produce the rich and multi-layered sound that captures the essence of the era. Maguire transitions from big band to ballad with ease. My Secret Love brought an intimacy to the room as the spotlight paused over Maguire and the keyboard accompanist. The song was at times soulful and soaring as Maguire’s clear vocals carried the melody. There’s a power and certainty in Maguire’s voice, and the easy knowledge of how to use it. He has been compared to Johnny Reed with his raspy signature sound. But there’s a greater smoothness in Maguire’s vocals which lends itself to the jazz melodies he favors and other genres. Maguire wrapped up the night with an encore, the classic Beatles hit, Hey Jude. The group’s rendition captured the essence of the original tune. The audience sang along on the Na na na na na’s, which after reaching the heights, was brought back down to a cappella with rhythm, before getting revved up again. The crowd was on their feet for this one. Maguire and his band offer a totally enjoyable experience, steeped in nostalgia yet readily accessible for any musical appetite, and a fabulous trip down memory lane.

Newsroom comedy a fun-filled tale loaded with jokes By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

one of the school-age cast members in the latest production by the Prairie Spirit Theatre Company were around in the 1960s. In fact, their parents probably weren’t even born during the decade when this play is set. But that hasn’t stopped the young actors from embracing the era when television - at least colour television - was still in its infancy. “A Nose for the News” borrows the plot of a classic play, “Cyrano de Bergerac” and stirs in a group of memorable characters reminiscent of the classic 1970s television show, “WKRP in Cinicinnati”. A Nose for the News played Friday, November 23 and Saturday, November 24 at the Brian King Centre in Warman. Josh Ens excels in the title role of Cyrano de Begerac, a swashbuckling swordsman-poet who is transplanted in this story from 18th century France to a 1960s television newsroom studio. He’s the only character who still dresses like it’s 1767 instead of 1967, but nobody else seems to notice. Cyrano wants to be a TV news anchor, and is a gifted writer with a charming personality, but he is cursed with an overly large nose. He generously agrees to help an attractive but none-too-bright rival (played wonderfully by Shawna Epp) win the job he secretly wants. Cyrano’s large honker provides fodder for a non-stop stream of

puns, cliches and one-liners as he keeps his “nose to the grindstone” and “sniffs out” the latest news story. Meanwhile, a sub-plot involving the station’s evil owner (SaraLyn Andres) and her two henchmen (Nicholas Gilbey and Vincent Valvert) adds some fun-filled intrigue. The young actors - all of whom are home-schooled students in the Prairie Spirit School Division - bring the play to life with their strong performances. They’re clearly having fun with this project, and they bring the audience along for the ride. There’s lots of chuckles and more than a few good bellylaughs punctuated with some subtle, dry humour that you have to listen closely to catch. It takes a lot of hard work to make something look easy, and the actors and parent crew, including Producer and Director Shelley Gilbey, have put together another winner.

Warman’s new website connects city with citizens By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

A

completely redesigned website for the City of Warman is now up and running. The portal is easy to navigate and will help residents stay connected with civic administration and community groups. “It’s a very communityfriendly website,” said Sarah King, Economic Development Officer for Warman and one of the designers of the website. “There are multiple ways for the community to become involved, and a lot of information to be shared. It’s really a two-way street. Information can be shared back and forth and people can tailor their online website profile to receive the news and information they want and need.” City Clerk Janice Hudson is the other half of the development team for the website. Hudson and King have devoted countless hours working with CivicPlus – a US-based website developer which specializes in municipal websites across North America – over the last four months to get the new website up and running. “We’re very proud of our new city status in Warman and the website reflects our vibrant growth,” said Hudson. “At www.warman.ca , you will find information on your Council, including meeting dates, agendas and minutes, Administration, Public Works and all city departments. “Event calendars, a faciliteis schedule, a bi-weekly blog by Mayor Spence, and links to social media like Facebook and Twitter are sure to appeal to the residents,” Hudson added. While the website is still being “tweaked” as improvements are added daily, all the pages are essentially complete now, noted King. She said one of the advantages offered to residents is that they can sign into the website and create their own account. After an account is created, users are able to receive notices of interest and

also report concerns directly to specific departments. “For example, if you want to be notified of upcoming community events, you can sign up for that,” said King. “And, if you want to report an incident like a dog running loose in your neighbourhood, you can simply send an e-mail form and it will go directly to the bylaw enforcement officer.” Setting up an individual account on the new Warman civic website allows residents and businesses to have everything they do on the website in one place, said King. “The account will keep track of forms they submit and other items so they can log back in and see those items easily in one place. It will also make it easier to interact with the website. People will be able to create their own ‘dashboard’ that will pull all the information that is important to them and put it in one easy place.” Residents and businesses can also access municipal bylaws, zoning regulations and other information directly

from the website, as well as download application forms for new buildings and renovations to existing structures. King said the main webpage will carry emergency alerts in the event of a serious incident in the community and residents can also be notified directly to their e-mail or cell phone accounts. City council agendas, minutes and meetings are all posted online and accessible through the new website. King said there will be specific areas of interest for businesses, including a listing of available commercial properties, business tax incentives, job openings, and the Warman Small Business Loans Association. A full listing of all businesses that are licensed with the city will also be posted. A photo gallery depicting community activities and recreation facilities, as well as civic maps and demographic statistics, will be available online to provide a profile of Warman to observers around the world.

Information on property taxes, municipal elections, and employment opportunities with the city will be posted on the webpage. There will also be external links to Warman’s Sister City, Creede, Colorado; and partner organizations including the Saskatoon Regional Economic Development Authority.

Strong growth creates streetlight backlog in Warman By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

A

major arterial street in Warman is still without streetlights seven months after light standards were approved for installation, and there is still no word on when the much-needed lighting will be in place. The volume of traffic on Centennial Boulevard North is increasing, so the lack of light standards has become a very serious safety concern, says Brad Toth, Planning and Development Manager for the City of Warman. “There are safety issues, certainly,” confirmed Toth in an interview on Thursday, November 22. “It’s a main thoroughfare serving the Legends neighbourhood, and there are a lot of people entering and leaving the Legends Centre recreation complex every evening.” Many residents and visitors are calling the city administration to complain about the lack of lighting. However, the city must wait for SaskPower, the provincial crown utility, to do the installation. “All the streetlight installations and electrical service connections to new residential and commercial developments in the City of Warman are done by SaskPower,” Toth said, An application was submitted to SaskPower for installation of streetlights on Centennial Boulevard nearly a year ago. Wile the application was approved in May, 2012, the city is still waiting for the work to be done by SaskPower. “We got confirmation of acceptance for the streetlights on Centennial on May 31, 2012,” said Toth. “The application for that work was put in last fall when the recreation complex first opened.” SaskPower has told the city that the light standards are currently on back-order. “The reality is that SaskPower

is very busy because there is a lot of develompent right across the province,” noted Toth. “We understand that, and we also understand that their priority is to get the power on in the new houses and commercial buildings so that they can be occupied. But if the current pace of development is the new normal, then we would hope that SaskPower takes that into account when it places orders for streetlights.”

HEAVY DEMAND SaskPower spokesperson Justin Bloor said the reason for the delays is the heavy demand for SaskPower services and installations right across the province. “It’s not just Warman,” said Bloor in an interview on Friday, November 23. “There are a lot of towns that are in the same situation. There is just so much growth and development that we are running short of material.” Bloor said SaskPower’s stock of streetlight standards was depleted by last spring. “By the time we got them back in stock this summer and early fall, all of them were spoken for right away,”

he said. “Now that we’re into winter conditions, the highest priority for SaskPower has to be new connections for residences and businesses. People are anxious to move in, and they obviously need power hookups before they can do that.” He noted that normally demand tapers off in the late fall and early winter, but this year that hasn’t happened. “There’s definitely been a lot of growth everywhere,” he said. “It’s not slowing down. The applications are still rolling in pretty heavy.” Bloor said the construction crews at SaskPower must balance competing interests when responding to demands for service. “As a general rule installations and hookups are based on a ‘firstcome, first-served’ criteria,” he ex-

plained. “But we also have to take into account emergency situations, whether a development is ready for occupancy, or whether there is a rush order.” Bloor confirmed the major windstorm at the end of June, 2012, which knocked out major portions of the province’s electrical network also took its toll. “It certainly didn’t help matters,” he said. “The big storm last summer added to the demand for material.” Tyler Hopson, a communications officer with SaskPower, said the corporation will be providing updated information in the near future on when the streetlights are likely to be installed.

UTILITIES A PRIORITY In Martensville, the new residential developments are on track as far as streetlight installations. Darryl Altman with North Ridge Developments, one of the major developers in the community, said the company’s priority is ensuring electrical hookups are completed for the lots and the residences. “Streetlights are required as part of the service agreement we have with Martensville in each development,” said Altman. “SaskPower is so busy that we have to ensure the

crews are booked far in advance. There are some frustrations, but for the most part it’s something we can deal with.” Altman said streetlights are a lower priority and generally take longer to install. “Our priority is to get the services in to the lots and ensure people can build when they are ready to go,” he said. “We have a lot of developments in Martensville, Humboldt, Dalmeny, Clavet and other areas. Obviously, street lights are important, but getting the utilities in is more important.”

SEVERAL AREAS IN DARK Centennial Boulevard isn’t the only part of Warman that is waiting for installation of streetlights, according to Toth. “There is a new residential street, Mize Place, that needs light standards,” he said. “The other priority area is the portion of Central Street from the intersection with Highway 11 to the tracks at the main entrance to the city.” Toth said the city is also looking to replace the existing light standards in the business district of Central Street with decorative light standards. But, he added, that project is a much lower priority than Centennial Boulevard. “Safety is our biggest concern,” he concluded.

Martensville changes property tax payment program, reduces mill rate By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

T

he City of Martensville is hoping more property owners opt to pay their municipal and school taxes through a monthly payment program. At the city’s regular council meeting on Tuesday, November 20, council voted to end the 5 per cent property tax discount on municipal property tax, effective January 1,

2013. The move is aimed at simplifying the system and will result in a reduction of .425 mills to the municipal mill rate. The timing is also designed to tie in with a similar move by the province. The 5 per cent discount for early payment on the education property tax is being discontinued by the provincial government effective January 1, 2013. In addition, 2013 is a property reevaluation year, which means that

there will be adjustments to property taxes throughout the province. In the past, ratepayers who paid their property taxes in full by the end of July received a 5 per cent discount on both the municipal portion and education portion of their taxes, with the discount rate gradually declining through the fall. But two years ago, the province eliminated school divisions’ ability to raise property taxes and implemented a province-wide rate. The elimination of

the education property tax discount, effective January 1, 2013, is a policy from the provincial government. There are several reasons for ending the municipal tax discount, according to Lorraine Postma, Director of Finance for the City of Martensville. “The original purpose of the discount was to bring in revenue early for the municipality,” Postma explained during a committee of the

Annual

whole meeting of the Martensville council on November 13. She noted that since the municipality became a city it has greater freedom to manage its own finances. “We no longer have a cash flow problem like we had in the past,” she said. “There would still be an incentive to pay taxes by July

Help us design the WCMS Logo! September 2013 will mark the opening of Prairie Spirit School Division’s newest school, Warman Community Middle School. Naming our school in October was one step in our coming to exist. The development of an identity through imagery such as school colours, a school logo, and a school team name are the next significant steps in creating a public identity and the beginning of developing a sense of pride and ownership in Warman Community Middle School. The logo development process will be comprised of the following steps and be guided by the work of a committee comprised of school and community stakeholders: Input/suggestions sought from community stakeholders on school colours, team name, and logo concept/theme. (January) The logo development committee will consider the input and determine a direction for school colours, team name, and logo conceptualization. Through the services of a graphic design firm, three logo concepts/proposals will be developed based on the recommendations of the logo development committee. The logo concepts/proposals will be shared with community stakeholders (students, parents, staff) and feedback will be sought. (March) The committee will make a recommendation to Prairie Spirit School division to approve one of the proposals as our official colours, team name and logo. (April)

STARTING JANUARY 3, 2013, pick up a suggestion form at either the WES or WHS main offices or visit the WCMS website at http://blogs.spiritsd.ca/wms. We will be seeking input from any community stakeholders – students, staff, parents, community, so put your thinking caps on!

Senior Boys Soccer

SPORTS

The 2012 Senior Boys Soccer team had a strong season. Practices were held three days a week and we had a high level of commitment from several members. During the regular season, we played against Martensville, VCA, Meadow Lake, and North Battleford. The Wolverines hosted two mini-tournaments in September, which gave opportunities for teams to play one another before playoffs. The boys played well up to and during the tournaments. One of the most memorable games was the Regional playoff vs. Humboldt, in Humboldt. The game ended in a 1-1 draw, which led to a scoreless over-time. This game was decided in a shoot-out. After hitting the crossbar, hitting a post, scoring twice, and the goalie saving one of the five shots, we lost 3-2. We hosted and participated in the SHSAA 2A Provincial Soccer Championships on October 26th and 27th. The boys played two strong games but came up short. We would like to thank Coaches Mr. Chris Folden, Mr. Dustin Chahley, and Mr. Brandon Holmes, and Manager Mr. Collins. Wrestling The new wrestling season is about to start up at Warman High School. The Sr. team (grades 9-12) starts in December and the Jr. team (grades 6-8) in January. If you have any questions feel free to contact the school and ask for either Jesse Reis, Matt Linner or Erin Hoffman. You can also email jesse.reis@spiritsd.ca. If there is anyone interested in helping out in the community please contact Jesse at jesse.reis@spiritsd.ca Warman Senior Girls and Boys Basketball The basketball season is under way with our senior boys and girls teams participating in a league this year.

Rope rescue training By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

M

artensville firefighters scaled new heights over the last couple of weekends on their way to completing a training program on highangle and low-angle rope rescue techniques. “It was a great experience,” said Captain Bill Symons, one of ten firefighters who took part in the 32-hour training sessions. “We had an instructor from the Saskatoon Fire Department come out to our fire hall and give the rope tech course. We learned a lot of good lifting and other rope techniques that are needed in rescue work.” The firefighters brought their training up to current 1006NFPA stndards for technical rope rescue. “We will be using these techniques to extricate accident victims safely from spaces where they have to be lifted up or down using ropes,” said Symons. “Some examples of where this may be used are on construction sites - if someone has to be lifted out of an unfinished basement, or from a rooftop. It could also be used in a river valley area or if someone has to be rescued out of a grain bin.” While all Martensville Fire Department members have a basic working knowledge of rope rescue techniques, the advanced training session will enable the ten newly-certified members to tackle more difficult situations. “We haven’t done any rescue situations involving this sort of scenario in the past,” said Symons. “In most cases, the Saskatoon Fire Department would be called in because they have the expertise. But now that we have achieved certification, we’ll be able to respond as well.”

Symons said the training involved techniques for lifting and lowering injured patients after securing them safely into a stretcher “basket”. The use of appropriate knots and pulleys are important because there is no hydraulic or electronic mechanical aids. “The only mechancial advantage comes from the rope systems themselves,” said Symons. “You can set up a 3 to 1 or 5 to 1 pulley advantage to reduce the load. If you do it proeprly, one man can pull up quite a bit of weight and you’re not overstressing the system or the people.” Symons said everyone who signed up for the training course needed “hands-on” familiarity with knots, pulleys and other equipment. “We limited the training sessions to 10 individuals,” he said. “It was 32 hours of training over two weekends, so it was quite intensive and involved a lot of practical use of equipment.” Symons said the members will need to maintain their skills in order to retain their certifica-

UP, UP AND AWAY

tion. He added that the training also helped build a sense of teamwork. “You need to really have a lot of confidence not only in the equipment and your skills, but also in your fellow team members,” he said. “When you’re in a stressful situation, you don’t want to have any doubt. You need to know the other guys on your team are going to do the job.” He said both the Martensville Fire Chief, Kurtis Dyck; and Deputy Chief Russ Austin are “very proactive” when it comes to promoting training for department members. “They are always looking for ways to help members develop new skills,” said Symons. “Tapping into the knowledge base of the Saskatoon Fire Department is proving to be a great thing for us and the other departments in our area.” Fire department members who were certified include Russ Austin, Bill Symons, Jason Marshall, Gary David, Todd Mossop, Mitch Hope, Jason Matheson, Chad Eckes, Chris Lavallee and James Taylor.

Members of the Martensville Fire Department learn advanced rope rescue techniques during a 32-hour training session at their fire hall.

Martensville captain accepts role of Sask. rep for Firefighters Without Borders After organizing the first shipment of donated firefighting equipment from Saskatchewan to Firefighters Without Borders last month, Captain Norm Hydamacka of the Martensville Fire Department is now a key part of the charitable organization. Hydamacka has accepted the position of Saskatchewan Regional Representative for Firefighters Without Borders. The offer from the Vancouver-based organization, which coordinates donations of used firefighting equipment to third world countries, was made in early November. Hydamacka said he took on the volunteer role because he feels the cause is a good one. “Hopefully in the future we can grow the number of donations we make with the help of many fire departments across Saskatchewan,” said Hydamacka. He added that as more fire departments learn about the organization and its efforts, the volume of donations is likely to increase.

31 as penalties for non-payment of current year’s taxes begin on August 1.” Postma said while the property tax discount incentive is popular, with about 70 per cent of ratepayers taking advantage of the program to pay their taxes early, the program doesn’t offer any financial advantage to the municipality. She noted it costs the city roughly $163,800 in foregone revenue. “Technically, we have had to adjust the mill rate to cover the cost of the discount so it is revenue-neutral,” she said. “If we discontinue the discount, then we can lower the mill rate by .425 mills.” Postma said while the incentive program is revenue-neutral, it actually costs the city money because of the additional time required to administer the program. She said there will likely be an adjustment period as ratepayers learn that the early payment discount is no longer in effect. The city is suggesting that ratepayers take advantage of the municipality’s equalized monthly property tax payment program. The Tax Installment Payment Plan Service (TIPPS) provides “an easy way to budget your taxes into a no-interest monthly payment option,” said Postma. “New participants are encouraged to sign up for the program by midDecember in order to avoid a large lump sum payment.” Approximately 25 per cent of ratepayers in Martensville are currently on the TIPPS program. Information on the TIPPS program is available online at the City of Martensville website www.martensville.ca (Departments – Finance – Taxes – Payment Options) or by contacting City Hall at 931-2166. Several cities throughout Saskatchewan are also discontinuing the discounts on the municipal portion of property taxes. Saskatoon, Yorkton, and Weyburn are among those phasing out the discounts. The City of Warman is currently looking at various options and has not yet made a decision on whether to phase out the municipal property tax discounts. The City of Regina has never offered discounts on property taxes.

Wildcats goaltender keeps things close, despite barrage of shots By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

I

f their skaters had played as well as their goaltender last Saturday night, the Warman Wildcats would have added another two points to their season total. But the Rosthern Wheat Kings skated away with a 4-2 win over the Wildcats at the Legends Centre in Warman after out-shooting the home team 49 to 22. The disappointing loss dropped the teams’ season record to 1 win and 5 losses, but there were some positives coming out of the game. Brock Hanson was phenomenal between the pipes for the Wildcats, stopping almost everything that came his way. Hanson, the perennial backup goaltender for his hometown team, usually doesn’t draw a lot of attention to himself, but he found himself squarely in the spotlight as the Wheat Kings threw everything but the kitchen sink at him all game long. “I was seeing things pretty good tonight,” said Han-

son after the game. “I felt really confident.” Hanson said he was glad to have the opportunity to start the game, and hopes his performance convinces people that he can take that role on regularly. Despite being bombarded wtih nearly 50 shots, Hanson stood his ground and gave his teammates a chance to pull a rabbit out of a hat. And they almost did just that. Rosthern scored the opening salvo when Tanner Gillies connected on a wrist shot 7 minutes into the first period. But Warman tied things up on a goal by Chris Seres late in the opening frame. The Wildcats’ Shadow Reddekopp got the crowd excited midway through the second period with a nifty goal after taking a picture perfect pass from teammate Shayden Regush. That lead didn’t last, however, as the Wheat Kings’ Mitch Berg tallied just before the second intermission to tie things up. Rosthern came out flying in the third period and add-

CLARK’S CROSSING GAZETTE • THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2012 • PG. 21 Warman Wildcats goaltender Brock Hanson stops Rosthern Wheat Kings forward Garret Cameron on a breakaway while Warman’s Jordan Nyssen swoops in to help clear the puck. Rosthern won the game 4-2.

WAYNE SHIELS | CLARK’S CROSSING GAZETTE

ed two more goals by Garrett Cameron and Shaun Vey. Despite the loss, the play of their goaltender provided an inspiration to the Warman players. The Wildcats next home game is Sunday, December 2 when they take on the Prairie Outlaws at the Legends Centre. Game time is 3:30

p.m. The following week, they play host to the Tisdale Ramblers on Friday, December 7.

BIG FLOOD Spectators who showed up for the game last Saturday may have wondered why a couple of fire trucks were parked in front of the main

doors to the Legends Centre. A break in the recreation complex’s sprinkler system resulted in an unexpected flood a couple of hours before the game was slated to start. Freezing temperatures along an outside wall near the unfinished portion that will eventually connect to the new Warman Communi-

ty Middle School played havoc with the sprinkler pipes. A sprinkler head broke off because of the freezing, which resulted in a large flood in the west portion of the building. Warman Parks and Rec staff were called in along with the Warman Fire Department to deal with the emergency.

What’s up with the good news, bad news Blades? There is no better way to illustrate the inconsistency that has been the Saskatoon Blades, so far in the 2012-13 season, than to play a little, “Good News, Bad News.” Good News: The Bridge Bunch were 3-2-0 on the just completed road trip through the entire B.C. Division. “It’s a tough swing, there’s a lot of good teams out there,” said defenceman Darren Dietz. “I think we’re pretty happy, anytime you can go there and take three of five games, that’s something to be proud of.” Bad News: Both losses were blowouts when the Blades had a chance to go above .500… 5-2 last Tuesday in Victoria and 9-2 this past Saturday in Kelowna. Good News: Saskatoon defeated the B.C. Division-leading Blazers 3-2 in Kamloops last Friday. The Bridge City Bunch battled back from a 2-0 deficit after two periods to win in regulation time with as good of a 60-minute effort from the entire group as they have had all season to date. Bad News: The Blades were eviscerated 9-2 by the Rockets in Kelowna just 24 hours later.

Voice of the Blades on 92.9 The Bull

“It’s tough to get going for the game (in Kelowna)…especially after a game like the one in Kamloops,” said left winger Nathan Burns. “Obviously, that’s a huge win and we put a lot into that game. Then to play the next night in Kelowna, it’s tough but that’s one thing we have to be able to do if we want to put some wins together and get a streak going.” Dietz added, “That’s the thing about junior hockey…it’s tough to be consistent every night. At the end of a long road swing, coming off such a big win like that (in Kamloops), it’s tough. “Tough, but important at the same time, to be able to play again the next night.” Despite falling short of their goal of attaining eight of a possible 10 points from the

trip, Saskatoon has achieved a baby step goal of catching a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. As of Monday, the Bridge City Bunch’s 11-12-1 record, for 23 points, had them tied for the eighth and final post-season berth with Brandon, Swift Current and Moose Jaw…just one point back of seventh place Medicine Hat and two behind sixth place Regina. Having said that, there’s a long ways to go as Red Deer sits in the fourth and final “home-ice advantage in the first round” of playoffs position…nine points ahead of Saskatoon. ***** UPCOMING GAMES – Hum along to the ol’ Willie Nelson tune because the Bridge City Bunch are, “On the Road

Again” this weekend! On Friday, the Blades meet the Calgary Hitmen for the first time this season…an 8 p.m., Saskatchewan time, first face-off. Then, it’s on to Red Deer for the initial visit to the Rebels at 8:30 on Saturday. After that, Saskatoon plays their final game of the season against a Western Conference opponent when they host the Spokane Chiefs on Wednesday at 7:05 at Credit Union Centre. The radio broadcasts on CKBL-FM (92-9, THE BULL) start a half-hour before first puck drop. ***** BLADES PLAYER-OF-THEWEEK – Some familiar rinks led to some familiar results for Nathan Burns. The former Vancouver Giant scored the game-winning goal, and his first as a Blade, with 1:01 remaining as the Bridge City Bunch won in Kamloops back on Friday. He also notched a power play goal Saturday in the blow-out loss at Kelowna. Overall, the 19-year-old Edmonton product has eight goals and 12 points in 24 games between Saskatoon and Vancouver.

Gasmo overcomes injuries to pursue dreams at college Submitted by JADON FRANK

Briercrest College & Seminary jfrank@briercrest.ca

rennan Gasmo has never let his 5’7” stature stand in his way. In fact, the second year centre personifies a lot of his favourites. His favourite quote is “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” His favourite movies are “Remember the Titans” and “Rudy.” His favourite song is “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey. And if he could give a piece of advice it would be “believe in yourself, you can do anything through Christ Jesus.” The business student was unable to play hockey for two years after getting in a car accident but he continued to pursue his dream of playing hockey at the next level. In order to accomplish this he spent the 2010-11 season at the Banff Hockey Academy before coming to Briercrest. “I still wanted to play hockey and still had a love for the game. So, hockey was the catalyst in coming to Briercrest, but I still wanted to grow stronger in my faith,” Gasmo said. “My family has always believed and had faith

in God, but just through life we got busy. With hockey on Sundays we missed church a lot. I lost a brother and my other brother has had heart surgery, so my mom and dad and I have become more prevalent in praying.” Briercrest head coach Dalton Stoltz has been very impressed with what he has seen from Gasmo this year. “He has the heart of a champion,” Stoltz said. “He never gives up, and doesn’t know 50%.” “Growing up I was always told I have a big heart, so that would be my biggest strength,” Gasmo said. “I have a heart for people. That is what God has given me. My heart and hard work, they come hand in hand for me as a person. On the ice, I bring heart and energy. I am a cheery, positive kind of guy that can pick people up and then when it is my turn go out there and give all I have. My parents taught me that at a young age and it is imbedded in my blood.” Gasmo has felt blessed during his time at Briercrest, and noticed many personal changes. “Coming out of junior, there is such a gross lifestyle there, so it is hard to have a

faith and have good morals,” Gasmo said. “But, this team has changed my view on life, how to be a good man. Everyone is there for you. Coming here, there are ups and downs, but there are guys here pushing you through those ups and downs. Everyone is working for one common goal, to glorify the Lord and to make playoffs. It is good to be on the same page.” “My goal as a student is to work hard and whatever mark comes, but I want to retain the information,” Gasmo said. “This stuff teaches you about life and how to be a good person. As an athlete, I want to be the best athlete I can, whatever the team needs from me I want to provide for them. I will continue to work hard and do the best I can.” Gasmo had a really special weekend during his rookie season. “My favourite moment at Briercrest was the big breakout for me playing quite a bit in the Portage series here where we beat them both games,” the Warman native said. “The one game fell on the night which would have been my brother’s 18th birthday, so winning the game for him and getting the game puck with my brother’s

name on it was pretty amazing.” Gasmo has a great heart for this world, and specifically for the country of Haiti. “If money were no issue I would love to go back to Haiti and keep serving there! I know that is not what most people would do, but for me that is where my heart was and after those two weeks of serving there I felt amazing,” Gasmo said. “I would love to learn the language and stay there for maybe a year and make a difference. I know they made a difference in my life, but also to help them and let them know that there are people over here in North America who care about what they go through and we’re not cold hearted. We could learn from them in the way they worship and their passion for the Lord, it is unbelievable.” Gasmo is excited for what the future at Briercrest holds. “My greatest moment in life so far, non-athletically, was this past summer in Haiti. I got baptized in the Caribbean Ocean,” Gasmo said. “God’s got great things in store for me, and this is only year two! My career ambition is to own a business, and on holidays go on mission trips.”

GET OUT THE SKATES!

Calvin Bruneau with the City of Warman Parks and Recreation Department uses a fire hose to flood an outdoor rink across the street from Warman Elementary School on Friday, November 23. The facility is one of two outdoor skating surfaces in Warman that are flooded and maintained by civic staff through the winter. The other is located at Lion’s Park on 9th Avenue North. Brunea was busy applying the second flood. He said it will likely take at least another five floods before the ice is ready for skaters. If the weather continues to stay on the cold side, the ice should be ready relatively quickly. He noted that each rink is flooded on a regular basis to keep the ice surface in good shape. The city is looking at utilizing a “pull-behind zamboni” apparatus to improve the efficiency of the floods over the winter. TERRY PUGH | CLARK’S CROSSING GAZETTE

Bethany College athletes make a big impact on the volleyball courts Submitted by Alvin Thielmann

Athletics Director Bethany College, Hepburn

Bethany College’s Athletes of the Month includes second year athlete Jordan Heppner. This year Heppner has been given the role as the setter for our women’s volleyball team. She has taken on this new position with confidence and excellence. Her previous experience and knowledge as a Libero makes her a strong defensive player. Heppner’s strong leadership abilities and consistent level of play has contributed to the success of the team to this point of the season. Chosen to represent the male athletes this month is a rookie who has stepped into a new school with a new role. Phil Braun has been given the position of Libero on the men’s volleyball team. While new to this position, he has not looked out of place and has shown true team spirit in this defensive role. Braun has also emerged as a leader on a different court. He leads the Basketball team in points (and other stats). With his enthusiastic and intense play, he has led the Eagle to a perfect 2-0 record. We congratulate both of these students on their achievement! May they con-
