espite repeated warnings, some sled-heads in Warman and Martensville don’t appear to be getting the message. And it could end up costing them in the pocketbook if they are hit with a hefty fine and have their snowmobile impounded. In the long run, there could even be a complete prohibition on snowmobiles being driven within city limits, although the city councils of both Martensville and Warman are hoping it doesn’t come to that. Violations of the City of Warman snowmobile bylaw are a growing problem, according to Wade Eberle, Warman’s Bylaw Enforcement Officer. “It’s a safety concern, first and foremost,” said Eberle in an interview on Friday, January 18. “Snowmobilers are putting themselves and others at risk by speeding through town and not obeying the rules of the road. There are violations every day, but it’s difficult to catch them.” Warman and Martensville have similar bylaws restricting the use of snowmobiles within municipal boundaries. The sleds are legal to operate as long as they are driven at 20 kilometers per hour, and sledders use the most direct route out of town, utilizing alleys and side streets. There are certain main thoroughfares where snowmobiles are not allowed at all. In Warman, those streets include Central Street, 6th Avenue and Centennial Boulevard. In Martensville, prohibited streets include Main Street and Centennial Drive. Eberle said most snowmobilers are aware of the bylaws and follow the rules. But there are a minority that don’t seem to get it. He said it’s a matter of education. “It’s not a free-for-all,” he said. “The vehicles have to be licensed, and you have to drive them in a responsible way. There are a lot of kids in town, and we’re concerned that someone could get hurt or killed.” Besides the danger to people, snowmobiles can do considerable

But if they’re going around town cracking those pipes outside people’s houses you can bet there will be complaints and repercussions.” Quintal said the onus is on snowmobilers themselves to abide by the rules. “I’d hate to see a bylaw imposed where we have to trailer our sleds out of town,” he said. “That’s one of the reasons I moved to Warman, so that I could climb on my sled and hit the trail once I got out of town.” Quintal notes there are an estimated 20,000 snowmobiles licensed in tthe Saskatoon area. “On any given weekend, there will be 200 or 300 sleds going through this area,” he said. “It’s very busy, and there are lots of chances for bad things to happen. People have to be more diligent about following safety rules and respecting the bylaws. The SSC promotes the sport in a variety of ways, including helping to sponsor the annual Prairie Women on Snowmobiles (PWOS) ride that raises money for cancer research. SSC members not only volunteer their time to help with the banquet, but also work with local businesses to generate funds for the cause. The PWOS ride this year features a local rider from Warman, Jeanette Ens. The PWOS ride is scheduled to pass through Martensville on Wednesday, February 6.

ommunities around the province are considering whether to scrap or retain discounts commonly offered for early payment of municipal taxes. The RM of Corman Park decided on December 10, 2012 to retain their 5% early payment discount for the year 2013. To date, Martensville has opted to discontinue the discount while Warman will be retaining their 5% discount for taxes paid by the end of July. The Town of Osler will be joining others who have scrapped the discount. Osler Town Administrator Sandra MacArthur observed that when factoring in operational costs, a water rate increase of 7% and a SaskPower rate increase of 4.9%, it’s difficult to forecast the net results, but “if taxes do go up, they won’t go up as much as they would have otherwise.” Osler had been offering a 7% discount for tax bills paid by June 30. MacArthur also noted, “This is a reassessment year and there’s going to be a lot of changes throughout the province.” Properties are revalued every four years by the Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA). “No matter how careful a council might be there’s no way you can make everything revenue neutral on every property,” said MacArthur. Property reassessment combined with the removal of education tax discounts and potential tossing of municipal tax discounts means these administrations have some reconfiguring to do.

Highways Minister urged to give higher priority to key intersections By TERRY PUGH

The Mayors of Warman and Martensville are hoping the provincial Highways Minister will give a higher priority to improving safety at key intersections on Highways 11 and 12 following a meeting last week in Regina. Warman Mayor Sheryl Spence and Martensville Mayor Kent Muench met with Highways and Infrastructure Minister Don McMorris on Friday, January 11. At that meeting, the mayors put forward their concerns about the Highway 11 entrance to Warman and the Highway 12 entrance to Martensville.

These and other key intersections are part of an ongoing study commissioned by the Ministry of Highways. Traffic volumes in the region have increased in recent years as a result of the growth of both centres. At a recent public open house in Warman, long-term plans were outlined for upgrades to intersections on both highways. Many of the proposed improvements fall short of what is needed in the immediate future, according to the mayors. “I think our meeting with the Minister was very productive,” commented Warman Mayor Sheryl Spence in an interivew January 16. “We

wanted the Minister and his staff to hear from us directly about the traffic levels at peak times, and the number of collisions and injuries. Our concerns are not so much with the long-term plan, but with the timeline. We want a commitment from the Ministry that they’re going to look at shortterm objectives to improve safety right away, and not wait years.” Spence said the elected councils of both cities understand that interchanges are expensive and are still years away, but we need solutions to our immediate concerns as soon as possible.” Spence said short-term

fixes including dedicated acceleration and turning lanes, warning signals and other options need to be given greater

weight in the Highways Ministry’s list of priorities. “Everyone is agreed that interchanges are needed, but

in the interim we want to see some short-term solutions to keep the intersections safe,” she concluded.


Warman SUMA inks partnership Elementary 2013-2014 School deal on Planning has begun for our fall classes. Parents / guardians of children born in 2008 are asked to contact the Warman infrastructure Elementary School office at


The Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association (SUMA) and Communities of Tomorrow have signed a partnership agreement, paving the way for closer collaboration and co-operation between the two organizations. Communities of Tomorrow (CT) is a public-private organization created to facilitate the development of innovative infrastructure products and services and to work with the public and private sectors to further enhance infrastructure development that will support continued economic growth in the province. SUMA has been a longterm supporter of this work, and has helped CT develop its Municipal Innovation Network, which has resulted in fifteen Saskatchewan municipalities signing memorandums of understanding to collaborate with CT. “Our members see value in the work of Communities of Tomorrow, in terms of assisting them to develop new infrastructure design and management processes that enhance value for tax dollars invested,” said SUMA Chief Executive Officer Laurent Mougeot. “We look forward to working closely with CT to advance innovation in municipal infrastructure across Saskatchewan.” “SUMA is the provincial voice of urban governments, and key driving force in helping communities share their successes and gains in this field,” said CT President John Lee. “The better our level of collaboration with municipalities, the better we understand their key priorities and challenges for innovation in infrastructure. SUMA is an essential partner to get that done.” Through the Communities of Tomorrow Leveraged Municipal Innovation Fund, more than $700,000 has been contributed by CT and urban governments to fund applied technology projects focused on local infrastructure. The fund has helped produce reports on best practices in such areas as pothole patching and provincial standards for cold mix asphalt recycling. SUMA and CT will continue with regular meetings and information exchanges to maximize the value of this agreement for municipalities.

Health concerns a shared Saskatchewan problem

At first glance, one might wonder why smaller cities and towns should be concerned about overcrowded emergency rooms in Regina. Rural health districts, after all, have no shortage of their own problems to worry about. The struggle of smaller towns to find and maintain rural family doctors is still a huge problem. Small cities and towns have

enough to worry about when it comes to ensuring enough of the regional health budget flows to their community. One might assume that the last concern they would have is the woes of city hospitals - especially when issues like overworked emergency wards would seem a problem specific to the cities and not necessarily one shared by those with their own health care delivery issues in rural settings.

Reader Opinions

Many questions surround proposed Fortune Minerals metal refinery Fortune Minerals appears quite confident their processing refinery is a “go.” They have purchased the land for their proposed site. Confident, even though they haven’t got Saskatchewan Government environmental approval, haven’t got RM of Corman Park land rezoning apporoval, haven’t got their permits from the Northwest Territories to mine there, and don’t have the financial investors for their Langham project. Langham and Dalmeny residents be wary! This company is going to compete with you for water at some 250,000 gallons per day. Sixty per cent of this water, when “contaminated”, will be pumped back down through the Langham/Dalmeny Aquifer to the Manville area to be lost to nature’s water cycle forever. Their processing plant will need many chemcial reactors such as sodium cyanide, ammonia hydroxide, hydrochloric acid and sulphuric acid to process the raw ore. Chemicals which will be transported and stored within kilometers of

our town, acreages and farm sites. This plant will also be emitting sulpher dioxide, particular matter containing heavy metals and greenhouse gases from its stacks. These emissions are susceptible to wind and thus will be distributed in all directions from the plant. The emission particles will settle on nearby berry farms (which is a concern of the federal agriculture department), our vegetable gardens and the forage and cerreal crops in the area. I assume there will be a need to upgrade the road system to and from the site to Highway 16. This plant is a high-energy consumer and will need multi-phased electricity lines constructed to the site. These are infrastructure costs that will be a burden to Saskatchewan taxpayers via Corman Park, Saskatchewan Department of Highways and Saskatchewan Power. I’m not feeling “confident” and sure don’t feel “fortunate” about these prospective neighbours. Do you? A concerned neighbour Ken Crush Langham, SK


Provincial Politics

But there are many reasons why such problems in Regina or Saskatoon are a concern everywhere in Saskatchewan. And it begins with the answer to the age-old question: How many oceans are there in world? The answer is: Just one. The separation of the continents hundreds of millions of years ago may have created the perception that we have separate oceans called the Pacific, Atlantic, Indian and Artic Oceans. But all ocean water is connected. The same can be said for our giant health system whose budget is creeping towards $5 billion a year. The more money that has to be funnelled into one particular city to address one particular problem, the less there is to flow elsewhere. Of course, some rural folks might not be inclined to look at the problem so generously. The bitterness over the closure of 52 rural hospitals two decade still lingers.

Some feel it was rural Saskatchewan that bore the brunt of the austerity measures. Unfortunately, that might be an oversimplification of the reality. It is worth noting that the closure of the Plains Health Centre outside Regina - leaving the city with only the Pasqua and General Hospitals - is one reason we are seeing emergency overcrowding now. Since the Plains closed its doors 15 years ago, Regina’s population has increased by 30,000. It stands to reason that overcrowded emergency wards would be becoming a bigger problem. And as of last week, the General Hospital had 10 more patients than beds and the Pasqua Hospital had nine more patients than beds in their emergency wards. Add to the equation that many emergency rural patients- virtually all of which were once funnelled into the Plains on the city’s outskirts - are now being ambulanced or air-ambulanced to the Pasqua and General Hospitals. Like in the ocean, the problems flow from one jurisdiction to the next. Another big reason why for the overcrowding is one familiar to rural people - the lack of family physicians.

Of course, this has less to do with the unwillingness of family doctors to locate in Regina - a problem that is much more acute in Saskatchewan’s rural setting. The problem tends to be poorer, lowincome people viewing ERs as the only place they will go to see a physician. Sometimes, the issue is simply a matter of operational efficiency and the Regina-Qu’Appelle Health Region has acknowledged that better use of the beds is the key. But another part of the equation is that there are more surgical procedures being performed in the big cities, thus a shortage of operational beds that becomes a shortage of emergency beds. And even if the solution doesn’t necessarily involve spending much more of the finite provincial health budget in Regina, the time and energy government and health officials are dedicating to finding a solution is surely robbing the system of energy that it could be dedicated to solving other health care problems. Solving a problem one place in the health system goes a long way towards solving problems everywhere.

Fortune Minerals, impending disaster The announcement in January 17 Clark’s Crossing Gazette, “Fortune Minerals finalizes land purchase” brings to a head my deepest fears of an impending disaster. A number of self serving individuals have been quietly working to push an appalling proposal forward, in spite of calamitous results. They have been deceiving local people into thinking that everyone will benefit. That someone would ever begin to consider a project that will consume and certainly poison a major water source in central Saskatchewan, the Dalmeny Aquifer, is beyond belief. Crop production, dairy farms and most ventures will be permanently affected. Homes which are not tied into the Saskatoon water system will suffer and wells will dry up. Both North and South Saskatchewan Rivers will eventually carry the poison downriver, into recreational park lands and territories, affecting fish populations and wildlife The 482 acres east of Langham, to accomodate the huge tailing

ponds, will be a source of poisoning the whole region with many noxious substances, including arsnic and lead. Contaminated landfills will remain after the company has left. Cancer rates will rise. Gold is not a beneficial resource. It’s “harvesting” requires the use of poisonous substances, and the desecration of the unfortunate lands involved is a certainty. Periodically there are reports from African gold mining areas concerning terrible effects from these activities. There was a recent news report from Guatemala, whose government has acted against Canadian gold mining there, because of the damage that has been created, citing the activites to be “exploitive and environmentally unsound”. We do not need Fortune Minerals. Why should our beautiful and productive area accept filth from the far north? Jan Buchanan, Dalmeny Published Thursdays by Jenson

Meet The Langham Museum’s newest member, Farmer Nickel (official name to be announced at a later date). The Museum Board is exceedingly blessed to have Wally Nickel as a member; they give him a piece of plywood (he’ll use his own tools), a pattern, a little time and the finished product is theirs. The latest project of his being a nearly life size, stand-up, cut out of a farmer, which will be one of the many items to be used in the planned outdoor farm display area at the museum, hopefully open this summer. Visitors to this exhibit will have opportunity to have their photo taken as they stand behind the cut out, place their face in the opening and become ‘the farmer’. An earlier project of Nickel’s was a free standing milk cow, Buttercup Betty. Buttercup Betty’s name was chosen in a draw from name suggestions provided by Museum members and visitors alike. She is much-loved by all who see her, but most of all by children; Buttercup Betty freely offers up milk to anyone who sits on the three-legged milk stool and pulls her teats. A very ingenious piece of work and one the Museum is deservingly proud of.

Museum, Plus 60 club ready for new season By SELA BALZER

Langham Museum & Langham Plus 60 Club Correspondent


aving made no New Year Resolutions for myself I wondered what new direction the year would take me without my planned input. A mere two weeks into the New Year I found out; I have entered a new and exhilarating path, but I didn’t go alone I took hubby with me. Let me explain; January 15 Allan and I, with Doreen Nickel’s invitation, attended the joint Annual General Meeting of the Langham Museum Board and the Langham Plus 60 Club. During the course of the meeting we found ourselves volunteering to assist Doris Tarasoff with the responsibility of researching and planning bus tours or excursions for the club. As well I willingly assumed the role of advertising all Museum and Plus 60 events.

Therefore, first and foremost on the list of my duties is to advertise the Langham Museum Annual Valentine Bake Sale. This bake sale is one of the four main fundraisers organized by the club, the other three being the April 1st Depression Day Dinner, the Langham Days Pie and Coffee Sale, and the Fall Harvest Sale. However, there is more to the Langham Museum and Plus 60’s people than four fundraisers! These people have the coffee and goodies on at the Langham Museum and the invitation it out to all to come on in every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning from 9:30 – 10:30 am. The price for the morning is as follows: coffee – by donation, goodies – by donation, fellowship – priceless! Proceeds from the donations collected are shared equally between the Museum and The Over 60’s Club. If you are reading this you are invited, visitors are always welcome and

School, library team up to promote family reading Spend 15 minutes a day reading with your child


The elementary school and library in Warman are teaming up to make reading fun for the whole family. A project aimed at improving student literacy skills encourages famlies to read together during the month of January. “January 27 is ‘Literacy Day’ across Canada, and our goal is to encourage parents and students to read together,” explained Scott Dyck, Principal of Warman Elementary School. “During the month of January, Warman Elementary School will be partnering with the Warman Library and inviting all of our students to play literacy bingo - whch is called READO.” At the beginning of January, the school sent a letter to all parents explaining the project as well as a ‘READO’ card, similar to a bingo card. After all the squares on the card are completed, the students can submit the card as an entry form for prizes. “We sent information

Family Literacy Day is a national awareness initiative created by ABC Life Literacy Canada in 1999 and held annually on January 27 to raise awareness of the importance of reading and engaging in other literacyrelated activities as a family. Taking time every day to read or do a learning activity with children is crucial to a child’s development. Even just 15 minutes a day can help a child’s literacy skills dramatically, and can help a parent improve their skills as well. ABC Life Literacy Canada is a non-profit organization that inspires Canadians to increase their literacy skills. We connect and mobilize business, unions, government, communities and individuals to support lifelong learning and achieve our goals through leadership in programs, communications and partnerships. ABC Life Literacy Canada envisions a Canada where everyone has the skills they need to live a fully engaged life.

home to the parents providing them with tips on how they can help their kids with words when they get stuck,” said Dyck. The Warman branch of the Wheatland Regional Library is also involved in the project, providing READO cards to parents who bring their preschool children in to the library’s storytime.

On January 27 at 2:00 p.m., the Warman library is hosting an hour of stories, crafts

and refreshments as part of its Family Literacy Day celebration.

Mission provides food, homes for people in Mexico’s cities Fundraiser in Warman next weekend kicks off month-long building campaign in Juarez, Mexico By TERRY PUGH


or the past 11 years, Frank and Liz Guenther have made an annual trek to Mexico. But they aren’t heading south on vacation. The Warman couple, along with many other volunteers involved with Christlike Ministries, have been working to provide much-needed food and housing to residents of the city of Juarez, Mexico. “It’s something we feel blessed to be able to do,” explained Frank Guenther in an interview on January 15. “We’re put on this earth to help our neighbours, and we feel this is where the Lord has led us.” Guenther said the Warman-based mission feeds between 200 and 300 people at a time with its mobile food bank, delivering food to poor neighbourhoods throughout Juarez, a city of some 2 million people. In addition, Christlike Ministries volunteers, with help from volunteers associated with churches in Texas and Mexico, have built ten houses for poverty-stricken families. “We’re heading down to Mexico on January 29,” confirmed Guenther. “And we’ll be down there about three weeks. We will be building our eleventh house while we’re there.” He said the houses aren’t large – about the size of an average garage in Canada – but are equipped with modern facilities – including running water and electricity. The building materials are all sourced locally, and Mexican tradespeople are employed to lay the concrete foundation for the building as well as hook up utilities. Guenther said it costs about $5,000 (Canadian) to build a house in Mexico – not counting the donated labour of volunteers. To finance the proj-

ects, two fundraisers per year are held in Warman – the first in January just before the mission volunteers leave for Mexico, and another in the summer that takes the form of a weekend country gospel festival. In addition to funding the housing and food bank projects, money raised by Christlike Missions also goes to support a year-round mission outreach centre staffed by Joel and Amber Cera. The mission has garnered a lot of local support in the City of Juarez, said Guenther, noting there are 4 local churches who have become involved. “When we go out to the different areas of the city and distribute the food bags to people, we also set up microphones and speakers and have a program that tells people why we do this.” He said. “We

also include a lot of music. We care about the people in need. That’s our mission. We have so much in Canada, and we feel it’s our duty to share our blessings with less-fortunate people in Mexico.” Guenther said over the years, they have made many close friendships in Mexico as a result of the mission work, and added that every winter, they look forward to heading back down south. “After so many years, and so many experiences, it almost feels like home when we get to Juarez,” he commented. “It’s a very rewarding endeavour.” This year’s mission fundraiser is slated for Saturday, January 26 at the Brian King Centre in Warman, and features Ken and Millie Jackson, a country gospel duo from Manitoba. The fundraising

A fundraising event is planned for Saturday, January 26 in Warman to help finance the food bank and house construction projects in Mexico. supper consists of traditional Mennonite fare, and admission is by free-will donation. “It’s going to be a very en-

tertaining evening with good food and great music,” said Guenther. “We hope to raise enough money to pay for this

year’s house that we’ll be building, as well as have funds to purchase food for distribution to poor neighbourhoods.”

Community Access Centre seeks sustainable funding By TERRY PUGH

When it comes to multitasking, the Martensville Community Access Centre (MCAC) is the hands-down leader. The volunteer-operated community resource centre, located in the Martensville Civic Centre, fills many roles in the rapidly-growing city. It’s a learning facility where students can get help with their homework, a resource facility for new parents, a repository for a wealth of information about the city and the region, and a place where newcomers can get a handle on what’s happening. The MCAC is sometimes mistakenly perceived as a civic department of the City of Martensville. But it’s actually an independent, separate entity. Financial support from the City of Martensville is limited

to the provision of office and resource centre space in the municipally-owned civic centre building, which also houses the Martensville branch of the Wheatland Regional Library.

FUNDING SOURCES For the better part of the past decade, the MCAC has played a big part in Martensville’s existence. But every year, funding to keep the centre going, and expand its programming to meet the needs of the community, is always a challenge, confirms Kristee Lynn Adrian, Coordinator of the MCAC. “Definitely, finding enough funds to keep going is something we deal with every year,” said Adrian in a recent interview. “It’s an ongoing concern for us, and we’re currently looking to secure sustainable funding for the long term.” Adrian said the centre

is currently working on a fundraising campaign aimed at securing grants and sponsorships from government agencies and local businesses. Noting that some of the major projects the MCAC takes on, including the Martensville Canada Day activities on July 1 of every year, are funded in large part through Canadian Heritage grants from the federal government. The centre also receives a Buster Days grant from the committee that oversees that event; some recreation and cultural funding through the provincial Lotteries grant administered by the City of Martensville; and a $15,000 “Healthy Community, Healthy Families” grant through the provincial Community Initiatives Fund. But provincial lottery funds have been dwindling in recent years, and the number of groups and agencies applying for those limited funds

is increasing. That trend has meant the MCAC is increasingly turning to local funders to keep going.

SPONSORSHIPS THE KEY “We’re looking at different opportunities,” said Adrian. “We organize a major fundraiser every fall, which is our ‘Are you smarter than a Martensville Fifth Grader’ event. It’s very popular and very entertaining. But it doesn’t cover all our costs by any means. We are working with local businesses, and also with individuals and groups, to provide sponsorships for our programs and projects on an ongoing basis.” The MCAC has a modest operating budget of about $35,000 per year, and Adrian says the centre does its best to keep the cost of its programs low so they are accessible to everyone. Even so, last year, the centre ended up with a deficit.

“We want to have enough money annually to be sustainable,” said Adrian. “We don’t want to fall short again this year. So we have to be continually searching all the time for that long-term funding so we don’t have to keep scrambling all the time relying on shortterm grants.” Adrian said while there are some positive aspects related to grants, including a need to come up with new and fresh projects, it also takes away from tried-and-true basic programs. “We want to continue to focus on youth, and broaden our programs for seniors,” she said. The MCAC welcomes donations and volunteers from Martensville and other communities in the region. “We’re always looking for volunteers who can donate their time and knowledge to the centre,” said Adrian.

Should there be warning labels on food? Obesity is becoming a serious health concern for Canadians. Would it help if we understood better what we’re consuming? By HILARY KLASSEN


would highlight this tension, and send a mixed message to consumers from products that continue to be available that says “I’m here buy me,” and “you should really think twice about buying me.” In addition, the OMA suggested a junk food tax which also takes inspiration from measures against tobacco products. Other types of food labels are being considered as well. In a referendum as part of the American presidential election, Californians could vote on whether to put labels on foods to indicate if they have been genetically modified (GMO). Saskatoon food writer and restaurant reviewer Amy Jo Ehman said she would like to see GMO labels on foods, stating, “It’s not that I’m going to say GMO’s are bad or not, but I’m saying if consumers want to know that, I think we have a right to know that, and I think something like that should be put on the label, just like if you want to know what the salt content is.” Ehman added, “In corporate industrial food systems, I mean off the farm, I’m talking about the processing side of the food system, there’s a lot of secrecy and there’s a lot of things they would just rather not talk about, and they think we don’t need to know that. I think we do want to know, and we deserve to know that.” It

may be that this kind of secrecy and corporate muscle has allowed the obesity crisis to evolve into what it is. And while Jamie Oliver

advocates a “food revolution,” change will not happen quickly. The ease of getting calories from processed foods, combined with the problem of in-

activity needs to be addressed. The issue goes beyond health care costs to the power of industry and the societal habits of enjoying comfort



foods and emotional eating in a single living room. Hopefully there is enough will to peel off the layers of this problem to reveal solutions.

A century of learning Pike Lake School celebrates 100 years of education and comunity By TERRY PUGH


t’s been described as “the small school with the big heart.” And while Pike Lake School may be one of the smallest schools in Saskatchewan, it’s also one of the most durable. The K-4 country school nestled among the sand hills and poplar trees that line the shores of Pike Lake is celebrating its 100th birthday this year. And while it’s faced the threat of closure more than once in its colourful history as its student population hovers around the minimum needed to keep it open, it remains an integral part of the close-knit community, one of the few rural country schools in the province to buck the trend toward amalgamation. “It’s a real gem of a school,” according to Heather Robertson, a teacher at the school and one of the organizers of the school’s centennial celebration planned for June 8, 2013. “It has a very welcoming atmosphere, just like the community that it is part of.” The first one-room Pike Lake School opened its doors in 1913. Organized by the farmers who settled in the area, the school was the centre of the new community, serving as both a school and a gathering place for social events. That tradition continued through the decades and is still very much alive today, notes Robertson. A community hall adjacent to the new school, built in the early 1980s, serves as a gymnasium for the students, and school events regularly draw in residents of the community – including those who no longer have children in the school.

CELEBRATION JUNE 8 Robertson said the students at the school are excited to be part of the historic centennial celebration planned for Saturday, June 8. At that e event, all past and present students, staff of Pike Lake School and their families are invited to join in the day-long celebration. A Facebook page has been set up to update people on the celebration plans. You can also contact the organizers at pikelakecentennial@gmail. com for information, or call 306-668-4808. Robertson said the centennial event is “all about celebrating education” in the past 100 years and the next 100 years. The day kicks off with a registration table at 11 a.m. followed by a brunch at the hall, with games and activities and school tours. There is a formal program highlighting the history of the school, and the vision for the school in the future, slated for 2 p.m. At 5:30 p.m. there is a picnic supper and barbecue, followed by a family dance in the community hall from 7 to 9 p.m. Robertson said invitations are being sent out through the Facebook page, but organizers are also relying on word-of-mouth to get the message out to anyone who has had a connection to Pike Lake School over the years. There will be a classroom set up with old-fashioned desks and books to recreate the atmosphere of a classroom from the 1913-era. “People have donated desks, books and chalkboard slates for the day,” she said, adding they are also looking for more donations. Robertson said the current crop of students are “fascinated” by the pioneer era. “They love experiencing how different it might have been for their great grandparents to go to school,” she commented. FUNDRAISER JANUARY 31 While the big celebration is still a few months away, there’s plenty of work to do before it gets here, noted Robertson. “In hopes of raising money to put towards the cost of the centennial celebration, we’re holding a Steak Night Fundraiser and Social on Thursday, January 31 at 6 p.m. at the Pike Lake Community Hall.” She said a variety of raffles will be held to raise money at the catered supper. Tickets for the fundraiser, which includes a chance for the main door prize, are $25 each and are available at the Pike Lake School, or by contacting Char at 306-384-1727 or Udelle at 306-931-2553.

Petkau named Hepburn Citizen of the Year By TERRY PUGH

Verna Petkau is Hepburn’s 2012 Citizen of the Year. It’s an honour the 81-year old Hepburn resident and long-time volunteer wasn’t expecting. “It was a surprise, definitely,” said Petkau. “I had no inkling this was coming. And somebody said to me: ‘That’s strange. You usually know everything that’s going on in town.’ But this really caught me off guard.” Petkau has been quietly working behind the scenes in Hepburn for decades, and she says it’s nice to receive recognition from the community for her efforts over the years. “It is nice to know that people appreciate me,” she said. “It makes me feel good. I’ve done what I could to make this a better community, and I’ll continue to do that, even though I’m slowing down a bit now and can’t do as much as I used to.” Petkau was often the first person that new residents met in Hepburn. For twenty years she put together a “welcome package” that introduced newcomers to the businesses, civic services, and organizations in Hepburn. She also served on the Hepburn Housing Board for 20 years, volunteered countless hours at the concession booth at the Hepburn arena, donated her time and energy to help at the Shepherd’s Villa Home, and was

a familiar face to students at the Hepburn School library. An avid gardener, Petkau did her best to keep the town looking good by watering and maintaining the flowers on Main Street for many years. “The town provided a nice wagon that carried a half dozen 5-gallon pails of water,” she said. “I did it for many years and took a lot of pride in how the flowers looked.” This past year, though, Petkau said she had to cut back. “Last summer, I told the town office I couldn’t do it anymore, except for the

flower box in front of the Centre hall, and across the street in front of the park,” she said. Petkau still handles all the bookings and oversees the maintenance for the Centre, a popular hall on Hepburn’s main street, on behalf of the community’s seniors association. She also organizes a weekly hymn sing session for seniors on Sunday nights at the Centre. “In church, the hymnals aren’t used much anymore,” she explained. “And lots of people in my age group still like singing the old hymns. That’s what we grew up with and that’s what we like. We don’t get a big crowd every Sunday, but we sometimes get people coming from Waldheim and Rosthern.” Petkau was born and raised in the local community. “I grew up on a farm three miles north of town, and then when I got married to a guy I went to school with, I moved to his farm one mile south of town. I moved to town in 1992 after my husband passed away. So I guess you could say I only moved a total of 3 miles my whole life.” Petkau said there was a time when she knew literally everyone in town, but the growth of the community in the last few years has brought an influx of young families to Hepburn. “I kind of miss the old days, but I’m so glad to see new people moving in,” she said. “It’s good for the school to have kids, and it’s good for our community too.”

Martensville Winter FunFest provides opportunity to celebrate winter By TERRY PUGH

Reddekopp said the winter festival is open to everyone, not just Martensville residents, and admission is by donation. “We have a lot of sponsorships from businesses in the city, and that helps cover the costs associated with the activities,” she said. “Any donations we receive will be going toward the Martensville KidSport.

The City of Martensville Winter FunFest offers a full day of refreshing family-oriented winter activities on Saturday, February 2. “Winter can be a tough season to get through, but it can also be a lot of fun,” said Angela Reddekopp, Recreation Program Coordinator with the City of Martensville. “The Winter FunFest gives people the option to get out and take part in outdoor and indoor activities – everything from skating and shinny to ice fishing, horse-drawn sleigh rides, coffeecan curling, snooshing, cross-country skiing, tobogganing and snowshoeing.” The event runs from 1 to 5 pm at the Angela Reddekopp, Recreation Program Coordinator with the City of Martensville North Ridge Centennial Community Centre and Kinsmen Park, said may not otherwise be able ed for putting on your skates.

Horoscopes CAPRICORN




Picture it, Capricorn—a new you. It is possible, and it begins this week with a challenge from a friend. A delay at work proves to be a blessing in disguise. Health concerns ease for a relative. Learn from their mistakes, Aquarius, and take the initiative to get back to form. A special date draws near.


Fixation can easily turn into obsession, Pisces. Stay aware of that fact with a project that looms. Work to maintain balance, and you will come out on top.


Favors are returned in unusual ways, giving you much to celebrate. Share your joy with those closest to you, Aries. A charitable organization reaches out.


Unfinished projects beckon to you. Use them as a way to connect with a friend who is feeling blue. A question remains, Taurus. Stop avoiding it.



Pish-posh, Gemini. What you deem important is not necessarily what is. Look to someone higher up for a list of priorities. A letter bears good news.

Amazing, Cancer. You fought hard for a project, and this week, the green light is given. Celebrate with a night on the town. Busy days are ahead. Push too hard, Leo, and you could fall short of a goal. Take a step back to reflect on the best way to proceed. An off-hand remark clues you in to a rivalry at home.


Run-ins with foes abound, and the mood changes quickly. Look to a trusted advisor to lift your spirits and put things in perspective, Virgo.


Your efforts fail to get noticed, but not to worry, Libra. Keep at it, and the rewards will come. Rules are revised at home, and conflict minimizes.


Warning, Scorpio. News from afar will throw you for a loop if you let it. Do your best to keep your emotions in check. There is a silver lining.


Pay rumors no heed, Sagittarius. The truth will come out. A matter at home causes dissension among the ranks. You will have to fight hard for a united front.

Rosthern RCMP officers responded to a report of a two vehicle accident at the intersection of Hwy#11 and 312 at Rosthern at approximately 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 17. A southbound truck struck a west bound car attempting to cross the highway. One person was injured and entrapped. The jaws of life had to be used to free the injured person. The injured person has been transferred to Royal University Hospital with undetermined injuries. An Accident re-constructionist has been called. The highway was down to one lane traffic for one and half hour.


come out in February calculations will be made and MacAthur reassures residents that the process will not result in a tax grab, but “will be based on what it costs to operate no matter what.” Dalmeny and Langham will also be scrapping the discount. Langham administrator Bev Dovell said “because the school decided to do away with education tax discounts, we decided to just eliminate municipal tax discounts as well.” In Dalmeny, Administrator Shelley Funk said the discontinuation of the discount “provides another $30,000 to the town to either reduce overall taxes or to get work done.” Hague will be retaining the municipal tax discount and is taking more of a wait and see approach. “This year, with it being the first year, it will be a matter of monitoring other communities and seeing how it will affect these communities,” said administrator Deanna Braun. Hague Mayor Pat Wagner added that their approach is “to educate our citizens as to what is going to happen, to minimize surprises. If there will be tax changes effective in 2014, we will start alerting them in fall via a newsletter, giving them a month or two advance notice.” She added that they would expect some feedback from residents in that community. Sandra MacArthur reflected a bit on the history of offering municipal tax discounts. “The discount came into being a long time ago, ‘back in the day,’ because most local governments needed to encourage people to pay early because they didn’t have enough money to operate,” she explained. “We have moved to more of a mindset that we have to plan what we are going to need over the next 20 years, not just this year. We must have enough money in reserve to cover replacements for water and sewer lines, and capital expenditures.”

TIPPS IS ONE OPTION Some communities will be looking at implementing at Tax Instalment Payment Plan Service (TIPPS) to assist those who would rather not make a higher lump sum onetime tax payment. But that’s not the case in Langham or Hague where many residents choose to pay taxes online and set up their own instalments. Sandra MacArthur indicated that the TIPPS program may be considered in Osler this year. Shelley Funk estimates that in Dalmeny about 20% of residents use the TIPPS program and that number is on the rise. With these changes looming on the horizon, providing information to the public will be paramount. The towns of Osler and Dalmeny will be posting information on their websites shortly.

MUSEUM The Borden Museum held a Whist Drive on a stormy Jan. 17th with only 12 players coming out to play. Winners of gift certificates for Hi score were John Petrun and Lottie Petriew and for low score Terry Petriew & Jean Sawchyn . SCHOOL Borden School Grade 9 & 10 class are holding a Sports Night on Friday, February 5th from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. as part of their Volunteer program. Grades 7 – 12 will be in the gym, while younger children can participate in crafts in the Science Lab. There will be snacks provided for all children and participants. Grades 9 -12 are also volunteering to be Snow Angels in February – to shovel off sidewalks and driveways in Borden, so just sign up the sheets around town with your address. The Borden School Grade 7/8 students will be performing in a dessert theatre style play titled “The Food Drive” at the Borden Community Centre on Thursday, February 14th, with doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the play at 7 p.m. Community members are invited to attend this event, with desserts served at intermission. The Grade 7/8 class have a once in a lifetime chance to attend WE Day on February 27th in Saskatoon and in order to do this they need to commit to a local and global initiative that helps to build a positive community. The students have decided to put on this play to raise funds for two different causes: a silver collection to raise money to build a water

well in Ghana, Africa, and donations of non-perishable food items to support the local food bank. The students will be organizing a food drive and a silver collection at Borden School, but are encouraging community members to take part in these causes by donating non-perishable food items or silver coins on the night of the dessert theatre. Your support of these wonderful causes would be greatly appreciated by the students and staff of Borden School

Martensville’s Mark Lane rink in mix at Northern Playdowns The Mark Lane rink from the Martensville Curling Club got off to a good start at the SaskTel Northern Men’s Playdowns in Kindersley January 17, winning their opening game 9-2 over Ian Mayoh of Prince Albert. But the local rink, which includes Skip Mark Lane, Third Scott Coghlan, Second Dave Zukewich and Lead Mark Larsen, wasn’t able to keep that momentum going. Lane ended up being knocked out of the C event and failed to qualfy for the Provincial Tankard championship in Melfort January 30-February 3. Brad Heidt and son Josh Heidt claimed the two “B” spots at the 16-team tournmaent to join “A” side winner Kevin Marsh as qualifiers for the Tankard. Michael Carss and Randy Woytowich rinks qualified through the “C” final round. Defending provincial champion Scott Manners was eliminated in the C event.

With More



or Warman Wildcats fans, it was just what the doctor ordered. The Wildcats finally ended a ten game losing skid with a dramatic 7-6 overtime win against the Dalmeny Fury on Saturday, January 19. Wildcats’ forward Dan Lind played his best game of the season so far, scoring the tying goal midway through the third period, and finding the back of the net with the winning goal less than a minute into the extra period. Lind also picked up three assists on the night. Dean Baptist also contributed two goals and an assist for the Wildcats, while Doug Harms, Cory Perkin and Shaydon Regush added one goal each. Warman goaltender Brock Hanson turned aside 34 shots to keep things close in a game that could have easily gone either way. Dalmeny’s Justin Edin had a pair of goals for the Fury, while Justin D’Entrement, Tyler Boisvert, Joel Cardinual-Schultz and Kolten Fyfe added singles. Tynan Smysniuk played a solid game between the pipes

Warman Wildcats goaltender Brock Hanson has his eye on the puck as Kolten Fyfe of the Dalmeny Fury lets go a slapshot during a Fort Carlton Hockey League game at the Legends Centre in Warman last Saturday. Warman won the game 7-6 in overtime. for the Fury, stopping 31 shots.

POWER PLAY CHANCES The big difference for both teams came on the power play. Warman capitalized on the man advantage five times, while Dalmeny was successful on three power play opportunities. Warman opened the scoring and took a 2-1 lead into the first intermission, although Dalmeny held a slight lead in shots on net. Both the Wildcats and Fury scored three goals each in the second, and Dalmeny finally pulled ahead early in the third before Warman tied things up and forced the extra period. For the struggling Wildcats, the win gives the team a shot of confidence heading into the final two weeks of the regular season. With only four games left – all of them on the road – the team wants to build momentum for a post-season run. “It was a long time coming,” said Warman coach Stu Regush after the game. “We really needed a win. The last two games we played also went to overtime, and we lost both. This was our last game on home ice, and

the guys all said: ‘We’re not losing this one.’ They came out ready to battle and they did what they needed to do. They played a great game.” Regush said he was happy with the play of his goaltender. “Brock’s been good for us all year,” he said. “He’s finally had the opportunity to get more ice time and he’s shown us what he can do. He’s kept us in the game on many occasions.” While the win doesn’t do much for the team’s place in the league standings at this point, it goes a long way toward restoring confidence, said Regush. “The guys were really struggling for a while, but hopefully now we can keep that spark going,” he said. “We’re only 4 points back of the Prairie Outlaws, so there’s still an opportunity to move up the standings before playoffs. But we’ll take whatever comes. If we end up playing first-place Shellbrook, we’ll battle hard. Playoffs are a whole new season.”

PLAYERS INJURED Losing the game was tough for the Dalmeny Fury, but tougher still was the loss of three of their top players.

Joel Schultz-Cardinal left the game in the first period with a broken finger, Brandon Peterson is out with an injured foot, and Shane Yonkman has a twisted knee after blocking a shot in the third period. Dalmeny coach Clayton Chappell is hopeful the players can be back in the lineup in time for both the league playoffs and provincial Senior A championship playoffs in early February. “Losing players of that caliber means you have to do some shuffling in the lineup,” said Chappell after the game. “It doesn’t take long before injuries start making an impact.” Chappell credited the Wildcats’ power play as the difference in the game. “We were a little surprised by the five power play goals,” he said. “When the opposition scores five times on the man advantage, it’s time to re-evaluate what you’re doing on the penalty kill, and make some changes on the next shift.” Chappell said overall he’s happy with the play of the team. “Defensively, I think we’re playing well enough to win, but we have to finish

off on our chances when we get the puck in their end,” he said. “We also have to be careful not to give up turnovers, especially on the penalty kill in our own zone.” The Wildcats next game is Friday, January 25 in Hague when they take on the Royals. Game time is 8:30 p.m. They go up against the Elks in Shellbrook on Saturday, Janaury 26 at 8:00 p.m. The Dalmeny Fury’s next home game is Friday, January 25 when they host the Prairie Outlaws. Game time is 8:30 p.m at the Dalmeny arena.

$4200 donated to Saskatoon Food Bank The Saskatoon Blades are very proud to announce a $4200 donation to the Saskatoon Food Bank. The donation was made possibly for a number of different reasons, including a collection program run at Blades home games during the month of December. In total, 525 pounds of food was collected during the 5 Blades home games. To go along with the food drive was a number of mon-

etary donations. Windsor Plywood donated $100 for every home goal the Blades scored during the month, with Furniture World matching those donations. Over $300 in cash donations were also collected thanks to a draw for a pair of Blades chairs from Furniture World. The Blades would like to extend a warm thank-you to the companies and public for stepping up and making this a very successful drive for the Saskatoon Food Bank.

Scoring woes keep Blades from deserving victories The week that was for the Saskatoon Blades was a cliché lovers delight! The Bridge City Bunch found a way to turn, “two wrongs into a right!” Add that to a victory and the MasterCard Memorial Cup hosts were trying to be convincing, in a “Meatloaf” sort of way, that “two out of three ain’t bad!” Welcome to the world of three-point games! The Blades sandwiched a 5-4 triumph over Moose Jaw last Friday in between a pair of shootout losses. The first was two Tuesdays ago when Kootenay prevailed by a 4-3 score after seven rounds of the penalty shot contest. The second came this past Saturday when Brandon skated away with a 3-2 triumph after a 12-round shootout…the second longest in Saskatoon franchise history. Because a team gets one point for losing when a game is decided beyond regulation time, essentially the Blades picked up a second victory with the two shootout losses counting for two points in the standings. That meant the Bridge City Bunch collected four of a possible six points from the week…or two wins out of three games! However, the disconcerting thing for Saskatoon is their inability to score goals. In the three games, the Blades outshot the ICE, Warriors and Wheat Kings…but only notched 10 goals in 120 shots. Add in just two goals on 19 shootout attempts and the Blades inability to find the back of the net with a little more regularity kept them from having a perfect week. “We’re looking at every game as playoff hockey right now for us,” stated Saskatoon associate coach Dave Struch. “In playoff hockey, you win those games 3-2. And, these are games we need to win 3-2 and 4-3 and 2-1. “It’s going to be like this the rest of the year!” ***** ROSTER UPDATE – While finally receiving medical clearance to resume playing after sitting out almost two full months with an “Upper Body” injury, defenceman Kyle Schmidt has been re-assigned



Five-year old Caleb Quiring makes a spectacular save during a game between the Warman Initiation Jaguars and the Saskatoon Awesome Aces. The game was part of Timbits Hockey Day at Credit Union Centre on January 20. Over 30 teams took part and played 25-minute long mini-games.

to the Battleford North Stars of the S.J.H.L. for conditioning purposes. As a result, the Saskatoon Blades’ roster sits at 24 players…two goalies, seven defencemen and 15 forwards… the detailed list follows as of Monday: Goalies – Andrey Makarov (93), Alex Moodie (95); Defence – Matt Pufahl (93), Duncan Siemens (93), Graeme Craig (93), Shayne Gwinner (94), Darren Dietz (93), Dalton Thrower (93), Nelson Nogier (96); Forwards – Shane McColgan (93), Erik Benoit (93), Matej Stransky (93), Matt Revel (96), Nick Zajac (95), Logan Harland (95), Brenden Walker (92), Josh Nicholls (92), Nathan Burns (93), Lukas Sutter (93), Collin Valcourt (93), Michael Ferland (92), Brett Stovin (94), Ryan Graham (96), Jessey Astles (93); *****

UPCOMING GAMES – The Bridge City Bunch hosts a rare Sunday contest when they welcome Moose Jaw back to Credit Union Centre. Note that game is a 6:05 first face-off. After that, Saskatoon finishes their regular-season visits to Brandon on Wednesday…the Blades’ final game of the month. Game time that night is 7 o’clock. The radio broadcasts on CKBL-FM (92-9, THE BULL) start a halfhour before the initial puck drop with pre-game talk. ***** BLADES PLAYER-OF-THEWEEK – The last of the players acquired at the trade deadline scored the lone winning goal of the three games. Erik Benoit had his first goal and assist while also putting up a +2 rating in the three games. Overall this season, the 19-year-old Calgarian, and former Kootenay ICE left winger, has nine goals and 20 points.
