Co-op building food store in Warman By TERRY PUGH

Gazette CLARK S CROSSING

Plan the retirement YOU Want.

Start with professional advice.

Warman will soon be home to another major grocery retailer. Saskatoon Co-op announced plans late last week to build a 25,000 square-foot food store. Construction is expected to begin this fall and the store will be open for business by the summer of 2014.

ARCHITECT’S DRAWING SUPPLIED BY SASKATOON CO-OPERATIVE ASSOCIATION LTD.

The Co-op’s new 25,000 square foot food store, similar to the depiction above, will be located on Centennial Blvd. North

“We’re very excited about this project,” said Harley McClughan, operations manager for the Saskatoon Co-operative Association. “Warman is a place we felt we needed to be because it’s one of the fastestgrowing communities in the country and it’s under-served right now in terms of grocery retailers. We feel we can meet that need in a big way.” The store in Warman will be similar in design to the Co-op food store in Saskatoon’s Stonebridge neighbourhood, said McClughan. The Warman store, he added, will be a similar size to – and have a similar layout – as the new Co-op food store set to open soon in Humboldt’s Westwood development. “The Warman store will have a major focus on fresh food, including fresh meat cut on-site,” he explained. “We’re also focusing heavily on fresh produce and an in-store bakery. There will also be a full-service deli that offers the convenience people are looking for.” The new food store will be located in the Legends Plaza shopping complex, a new commercial development kitty-corner from The Legends Centre – on the northeast corner of Clubhouse Boulevard and Centennial Boulevard. A strip mall containing a number of as-yet unnamed businesses will be developed north of the new food store. The total cost of the project, including the land purchase, is expected to be between $10 and $11 million, said McClughan.

He added the Saskatoon Coop anticipates there will be approximately 100 full-time and part-time employees at the store once it is fully operational. Sheryl Spence, mayor of Warman, said she’s pleased to have the Co-op grocery store established in the community. “As our community grows so does the need for additional businesses,” said Spence. “With every business, new or existing, small or large, this helps Warman take a step closer to independence.” She added that as the business community grows, so does the confidence in Warman. “The Co-op grocery store is the beginning of a new north commercial strip that we have been patiently waiting for,” she explained. “We are are very pleased with this new addition to our community.” McClughan, a resident of Warman, said the management team at Saskatoon Co-op has been exploring the possibility of opening a food store in the community for about three years. “It’s taken us that long to get

through all the hoops and also to find the piece of property that we felt was right,” he said. “This is the right time to expand the presence of the Co-op in this region.” McClughan said the City of Warman has been working with the Co-op over the past few months to make this development happen. “The city has been very good to deal with,” he said. “This is a business deal that will benefit the community and benefit the Co-op.” The Saskatoon Co-op already has a strong presence in Warman, with a well-established gas bar and convenience store on Central Street. McClughan said residents of the region who are already members of the Co-op will be able to build up their equity in the co-operative, as well as benefit through annual “cash-back” patronage dividends. The retail earnings of the Saskatoon Co-op are passed back to the members, who are the owners of the business, McClughan added.

Aberdeen Rec Complex receives federal grant money to extend facility’s life By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

The Aberdeen Recreation Complex (ARC) is getting a piece of equipment that will extend its lifespan by decades thanks to a grant from the federal government. An industrial-strength desiccant wheel dehumidifier is slated to be installed this summer on the north end of the multi-million dollar recreation complex, which houses a hockey arena, curling rink, dance studio, library and other amenities. The unit is estimated to cost about $80,000, with half the funding coming from the local community and the other half provided by the federal government through a Community Infrastructure Improvement Program (CIIP) grant. The CIIP program is part of the office of Western Economic Diversification (WED). Lynn Yelich, MP for Blackstrap, is the Minister responsible for WED. Brad Trost, Member of Parliament for Saskatoon-Humboldt, made the announcement at a ceremony at the ARC on Friday, February 22. Calling the $40,150 grant “an investment by taxpayers” in “the heart of the community”, Trost credited local volunteers for the successful grant application. “They’ve done some wonderful things over the last few years,” said

Trost. “And this money will help keep this building in good shape for many years to come.” Because the hockey arena is operated year-round, there is always a problem with humidity over the ice surface caused by the mixing of hot and cold air, according to Blaine Tomolak, a member of the volunteer board which operates the ARC. “The moisture in the air collects on everything,” said Tomolak. “There is always condensation on the glass,

on the walls, and water falls onto the ice during the summer months. It’s also undermining the structural steel framework of the building. Right now it’s just cosmetic surface rust but if we don’t fix the problem it will eventually become very serious. It’s obviously much more cost-effective to install this dehumidifier now.”

Cities to pass along water rate increase By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

Water rates are going up in Warman and Martensville. A bylaw to amend the water rates was passed at the Warman City Council meeting on Monday, February 11; and Martensville City Council will be voting on the same issue at its next meeting on Tuesday, March 5. The increases are intended to take effect April 1, 2013. The increase is the result of higher rates charged by SaskWater, the crown agency that supplies treated, potable water to communities across the province. In 2012, SaskWater announced a three-year rate increase of seven to nine per cent annually until 2014. The provincial government says the increased fees are needed because of increases in operating costs, regulatory requirements and ongoing investments into capital improvements. At its meeting February 11, Warman City Council adopted a bylaw that saw the quarterly price of water delivered to residents increase from $72 to $78 for 6,000 gallons or less. The price for 6,001 gallons or more goes from $12 to $13 per 1,000 gallons. At its upcoming meeting on March 5, Martensville City Council intends to introduce a bylaw that will increase the water consumption rate from $11.22 per 1,000 gallons to $12.05 per 1,000 gallons. The sewer rate in Martensville is also set to rise from $22.00 per month to $27.50 per month. The City of Martensville says the increase is needed “to cover the seven per cent water rate increase by Saskatchewan Water Corporation, inflationary factors and to cover a portion of major sewer infastructure projects, including super pipes, lagoon expansion and upgrades.”

Chamber of Commerce established in Warman By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

Four months after becoming Saskatchewan’s 16th city, Warman now has a Chamber of Commerce. A meeting to establish the Warman Chamber of Commerce was held Thursday, February 21 at the Brian King Centre. The organization intends to be a voluntary-membership advocacy group for the business community. It will also facilitate networking opportunities among its members and promote business development in the region. According to Ernie Quintal, the time is right for the creation of a Chamber of Commerce. The Warman resident operates his own consulting and strategic planning business and he says there is a pressing need for businesses to cooperate for mutual benefit. “I’m fired up about this,” said Quintal. “This is very exciting because we get to participate in the future growth of this community and this region. There so are so many benefits to having a Chamber of Commerce. With a unified voice we can

have a positive, constructive impact on a lot of issues affecting our community.” Quintal said he was surprised to find there was no existing Chamber of Commerce in Warman when he moved to the community eight years ago. He and a few other businesspeople began talking about establishing the organization in early February and decided to call a meeting to gauge the level of support. A motion to establish the new Chamber of Commerce received unanimous support among the two dozen businesspeople at the meeting. A committee was set up to develop a constitution and a set of bylaws for the new organization, while a nominating committee was tasked with finding candidates to fill leadership positions. A meeting to formalize the structure, set membership fees and elect officers will be held in the near future. The tentative vision statement for the new organization is “to be a professional, unified voice of the business community on a local, regional and provincial level,” and “to ensure existing businesses – and the community as a whole – remain

strong, vibrant and progressive.” Warman automobile dealer James Paquette spoke in support of the creation of the organization, saying it would help facilitate establishment of businesses by young entrepreneurs. “I believe in opening doors and making people feel welcome when they’re looking to set up shop,” he told the crowd. “I came here from Summerland, BC, and that was the kind of atmosphere that was encouraged there. It makes a positive difference.” Terry Jenson, owner and publisher of the Clark’s Crossing Gazette, told the meeting he, too, is in favour of establishing a Chamber of Commerce. He said the purpose of the organization is not just to help the business community, but to make the city “a better place for everybody.” “This isn’t going to be a service club,” he said. “It’s an advocacy organization that takes into account the big picture. Business people are practical, not political. We want to make sure things are thought out beforehand – that things aren’t being done haphazardly. The

Chamber is also there to help business people with advice and networking opportunities.” Jenson said this is a “time of opportunity for Warman” because the population is growing rapidly and new businesses are moving into the region. “We could be up over 10 thousand people by the end of next year at the rate we’re going,” he said. “There are a lot of different issues that impact the city, like transportation, and now is the time for the business community in Warman to band together to make sure the ship is steered the way we would like to see it go.” Kent Smith-Windsor, executive director of the Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce, encouraged the formation of the new organization, saying the Saskatoon Chamber would offer plenty of support. SmithWindsor said every community has different priorities and needs, and each Chamber of Commerce reflects that reality. Noting that Martensville established a voluntary-membership business association last year, he said the Saskatoon Chamber has a good working relationship with that organization and

suggested a similar arrangement would be welcome with the Warman Chamber of Commerce. Smith-Windsor said the first Chamber of Commerce in Canada was established in Halifax in 1750 and that the Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce was formed on January 21, 1903. “It’s not quite accurate to say they met in a tent in the middle of winter,” Smith-Windsor said. “But it’s close. These businesspeople realized that if they didn’t do a better job of promoting their town, they were going to get eaten. It was a matter of survival.” Smith-Windsor said there were several points in history where the business community, through the Chamber of Commerce, “made things happen” – including the establishment of the University of Saskatchewan. He said a Chamber of Commerce is “really about getting together and meeting and learning and speaking about issues that affect you as businesspeople. You should have some forum for your community and we encourage you to choose that path. We will support you in whatever way we can.”

Hands off your ratepayer dollars By Colin Craig, Canadian Taxpayers Association

Imagine watching the person working at your local SGI retailer take $50 from the pile of money you just laid on the counter and walk it over to the office of provincial Finance Minister Ken Krawetz. You’d probably find that a bit odd. After all, the money you pay SGI each year is meant to cover the costs of insuring your car; why would they be giving part of it to the Ministry of Finance? However, that is exactly what has gone on in Saskatchewan for decades. Well, the insurance rep doesn’t literally walk over and hand the government cash like that, but behind the scenes, SGI, and other crown corporation profits are transferred to the provincial government to spend as it sees fit. It’s basically a backdoor tax. Citizens of Saskatchewan are told that their government must own and control their car insurance company, their telephone company, their electricity company and their natural gas company so that ‘greedy’ corporations don’t come in and gouge customers on products they need every day. (Thankfully they haven’t figured out that we need food ever day or else they might want to run the grocery stores too). Yet, that is exactly what the government does instead. Make no mistake, if these crown corporations were allowed to keep these profits rather than hand them over to the government, you’d pay less for these products. You could have lower car insurance premiums, lower power rate, lower heating costs and lower telephone bills. The only crown where the goal isn’t to provide the lowest costs is Sask Liquor and Gaming, and hence why the government should either privatize it or at least allow competition. (But that’s a story for another day). The Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF), a non-profit taxpayers’ watchdog group has for years argued the provincial government should keep its paws off those crown profits. Fortunately, politicians on the opposition side of the legislature have largely agreed with the CTF and have criticized their opponents in government for taking crown profits annually. Take NDP MLA Trent Wotherspoon’s recent comments about the Wall government’s financial update. He decried the “raiding” of the crowns and called the process a bit of a “charade.” However, the same thing went on when the NDP were in power. In the NDP government’s 2005-06 budget the crowns had a profit of $306 million collectively, but had to give $221 million of it to the provincial government. Similarly, while in opposition, Brad Wall’s Saskatchewan Party also decried those “dividends,” but has continued to take them since forming government. Clearly, the challenge is for us to get an opposition party to practice what it preaches while in government. Perhaps there’s a bit of hope. The Wall government has promised to not take SaskPower’s profits this year; recognizing SaskPower needs the money for new power plants. That’s a good step in the right direction. What it should do next is protect SaskPower’s profits in legislation through a “Crown Profit Protection Act.” After passing such an Act, it could gradually add other crowns to the list. In the mean time, next time you see your insurance bill, telephone bill or heating bill rise, ask your local MLA how much of that is going into government coffers through this hidden tax.

Saskatchewan shifts from rural to urban

Lest there be any doubt that Saskatchewan is changing to a more urbanized place, consider a couple of news items in the last week. The first is the news from the Saskatchewan Transportation Company that it is abandoning three of its money-losing routes to lessen its record $10-million annual subsidy. The fact that STC that hasn’t turned a profit since 1977 is again losing money is hardly news. What was newsworthy, however, is the willingness to stop traveling on money-losing routes – a move that may not go over well in rural Saskatchewan. The government-owned bus company announced cancellation of the Regina-Lanigan, Eastend-Swift Current-Mossbank and Blaine LakeNorth Battleford routes. According to the government, the two more southern routes – running only three times a week – were only averaging two passengers per trip. Meanwhile, the North Battleford route that only ran once a week was only average one passenger in the past four years. Savings could total $300,000 annual _ a drop in the bucket compared with the eight-digit subsidy STC is now getting. Nevertheless, it does seem a toughbut-prudent move for the Saskatchewan Party that relies heavily on its rural support. After all, the loss of these routes also means the loss of parcel and farm parts delivery to small communities and farms. There again, the loss of farmers and community population in sparsely populated areas suggests the loss of these STC routes won’t be as hard to take as it once might have been. This is a sign that Saskatchewan isn’t quite as rural as it once was. Another news item, however, suggested that Saskatchewan is becoming more urban. It could be found in the announcement of proposed rate hikes at Saskatchewan Government Insurance – especially for motorcycle insurance premiums that will increase, on average, a massive 73-per-cent. Admittedly, this has little to do with the fact that there are more bikes in the city than in the country. There probably are, but that is not exclusively the factor behind these premium hikes. The key factors, at least according to SGI, are that there motorcycles are

more expenses and far more likely to get into accident. And on an annual basis, the cost of motorcycle accidents to SGI is, on average, about $9 million more than what riders pay in their insurance premiums. That means that other drivers have had to pick up the additional costs. Of course, motorcycle riders are less accepting of this statistic and some have been quick to blame a monopoly Crown insurance corporation protected from competition from the private sector. There might be some validity in the notion that the SGI views such a huge rate adjustment as a quick fix to this issue. It might also be possible that both the rate review panel and the cabinet might see a 73 per cent in-

crease as something less than necessary or immediate. That said, there might another explanation that has more to do with our shifting and growing population. Saskatchewan drivers benefited for years from lower auto insurance rates not just because there was publicly owned insurance but because where the publicly owned insurance company was operating. In a province that was older than average and with a much larger rural component than anywhere else, you were simply less likely to get into an accident. But as our population grows younger and more urban (with a greater propensity to ride motorcycles) the likelihood of all types of vehicle accidents also increases. Simply put: We drive more vehicles. They are worth more. And – because there are more of us in the confined urban spaces of the towns and cities – they collide more. It’s also a subtle indicator that Saskatchewan is becoming more urban than it once was.

Reader Opinions Privatization happening in Saskatchewan Columnist Murray Mandryk’s recent rebuke of Premier Brad Wall’s crown privatization record leaves much to be desired. Let’s get Wall’s record straight. In 2009, Direct West Canada – sold ($31,732.28); Heritage Gas – 75 per cent sold ($109.8 million); SaskTel Operator Services contracted out; Rural Internet Stop-Sell in 15 communities. In 2010, Wall’s government stripped the crown corporations of 100 per cent of their annual dividends ($394.8 million) forcing a debt of $317 million onto the Crowns; Northland Power - Power Purchase Agreement (PPA); SCN sold; signed New West Partnership

Trade Agreement; SGI General License Plates contracted out; 20 per cent of SaskPower offices closed; AgDealer sold; SGI Canada shares in Charlie Cook Insurance, Western Financial Group, AAA and MFAC sold. In 2011, the Hospitality Network (which made a $3 million profit in 2009) was sold for ($36.6 million); Saskatoon Square sold for $50 million; Algonquin Power PPA; Gas Sur sold; Igasamex sold (40.1 per cent); SaskTel’s SAP contracted out; SaskTel, SaskPower and SaskEnergy line locations contracted out. In 2012, television and Internet installations contracted out; wireless

Driver crashes into street light, iPod to blame FROM THE CELL BLOCK Submitted by

SGT. WARREN GHERASIM Warman RCMP

The following is a summary of the Warman RCMP Detachment for cases during the week of February 18 to 25: On February 20 at 10:45 p.m. police were called to a single vehicle collision on Augusta Blvd. in Warman. Police located a 2007 Lincoln Navigator that had struck a snow bank followed by a light pole. The driver’s side airbag had deployed in the vehicle. Police located the male driver who advised that he was alone. The driver estimated that he had accelerated to 65 km/h after stopping at a stop sign and had diverted his attention from the road to change a song selection on his iPod. He lost control of the vehicle, left the roadway and collided with the snow bank and then the pole. The 17-year-old male from Saskatoon was uninjured but was issued a violation ticket for driving without due care and attention.

THREE CAR COLLISION

On February 21 at 9:54 a.m. RCMP attended to Stone Terrace in Martensville for a multivehicle collision. A 1999 Ford Escort being operated by a female driver reportedly hit a patch of ice, causing the woman to lose control of her vehicle. During the slide a delivery truck took evasive action to avoid colliding with the car and struck a parked vehicle. The Escort then slid into the delivery truck. All three vehicles received minor damage. The woman reported an injury to her knee. A 30-year-old Martensville woman was issued a violation ticket for driving without due care and attention.

SPEEDING ON ICE

On February 18 at 2:45 p.m. police were called to a single vehicle rollover collision on Highway 14 west of Asquith. A 2007 Chevrolet Impala was located on its roof in the ditch. The driver, who was uninjured, advised

police that he lost control of the vehicle on an icy patch of highway. A 39-year-old man from Scarborough, ON was issued a violation ticket for driving at a speed that was greater than reasonable for road conditions.

OUTSTANDING WARRANTS

On February 18 at 10:00 p.m. RCMP received a report of an erratic driver on Highway 16 near Borden, travelling eastbound. Officers were able to intercept the car, a 1993 Saturn, outside of the Saskatoon city limits. Sobriety tests were conducted and it was concluded the man was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. A check revealed the man was wanted on outstanding warrants from the City of Saskatoon. A 65-year-old Saskatoon man was arrested and turned over to the city police for processing.

TRUCK HITS GAS PUMPS

On February 22 at 9:00 p.m. RCMP were called to the Delisle Co-op service station for a complaint of a truck that drove

into the pumps at the gas station. Witnesses described a dark coloured Chevy truck that backed into the pumps by the car wash and then drove away. The truck was being driven by a man and witnesses advised that the truck had a flat front tire. There was minor damage done to the pumps. The vehicle was not located by police and the matter is still under investigation. Anyone with information about the vehicle or driver should contact the RCMP or Crime Stoppers.

MARTENSVILLE DISPUTE

On February 23 at 11:35 p.m. RCMP were called to a residence in Martensville for a domestic dispute. A female caller advised that she had been assaulted by her male partner and that he had left the residence. While police were at the house, a man returned and was arrested for assault. He was taken to the police detachment and later released on documents to appear in court. Police re-attended at the residence and arrested the woman as a result of a coun-

ter-complaint made by the man. She was also released on documents to appear in court. A 36-year-old man and a 35-yearold woman are scheduled to appear in domestic violence court in Saskatoon. Neither of the subjects were injured.

ASQUITH ASSAULT

On February 22 at 8:45 p.m. police received a call of an assault in Asquith. Police attended and met with the complainant, who advised that her 19-year-old son had been assaulted by another young man who was known to them. The man had a swollen jaw and some bruising as well as a chipped tooth as a result of the attack. A number of witnesses to the altercation are being interviewed by police. No arrests have yet been made and the matter is under investigation.

Chronic Pain Centre at City Hospital closing in May The Saskatoon Health Region will close the Chronic Pain Centre at Saskatoon City Hospital on May 24, but is moving toward a more integrated approach to pain management for clients and patients. “We have five very dedicated staff who have worked in the centre, some for over a decade,” says Dalene Newton, acting director of rehabilitation services for Saskatoon Health Region. “We know this is a difficult day for them and we have taken every step to ensure placement of

the team members in other positions within the Region. “We are working closely with the staff and three unions for a smooth transition.” Clients who may have been referred to the Chronic Pain Centre can now be referred to the Region’s other existing programs. Acute care patients have identified pain management as a high priority for them. As a result, Saskatoon Health Region will move to integrate pain management for clients and patients into its everyday work.

YOUR SUPPORT is needed to bring

JUNIOR HOCKEY to Warman & Area

Our committee is pursuing the possibility of a franchise for Warman to play in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL) starting for the 2014-2015 season. The SJHL is a 12team Junior “A” hockey member league in Saskatchewan with franchises in centres such as North Battleford, Kindersley, Humboldt, Melfort, Weyburn, Estevan and Yorkton. The SJHL provides players aged 16-20 with the opportunity to compete at an elite level while striving to achieve their educational and career goals. Most SJHL franchises have a significant economic impact on their local communities.

Benefits to the community a SJHL team brings

Through research we know that one franchise, in a community smaller than Warman, estimates the annual economic impact of their team to be between $1,000,000 and $1,400,000. The SJHL estimates that the economic impact of the SJHL to the province is approximately $30 million annually.

Encourage local spending by attracting visitors and visiting teams to the community to attend games; spending money on concession, fuel, meals, lodging and other local shopping opportunities Generate additional employment opportunities for full-time staff as well as players that would obtain part-time employment Promote community cohesion and pride by attracting fans to the community Provide positive role models for community youth with player/staff interaction Give local athletes an opportunity to pursue their hockey careers further Provide local family entertainment at a reasonable price with for 29 regular season hockey games each year For more information about reserving season tickets or corporate sponsorships, contact: Jaymon Hill Chad Anderson Ryley Anderson Derrek Fahl Paul Brunen Boyd Bergstrom (306) 280-4792 (306) 281-2100 (306) 381-9779 (306) 291-8889 (306) 222-8482 (306) 221-8638

Dalmeny group has big plans for spray park, playground By TERRY PUGH & HILARY KLASSEN tpugh@ccgazette.ca hklassen@ccgazette.ca

A campaign by a group of volunteers in Dalmeny is well on its way to raising $175,000 for a new playground near Prairie View Elementary School.

The campaign by the Dalmeny Spray and Play Inter-generational Park Project was launched in the summer of 2012 and is aimed at replacing several existing play structures that many parents feel are unsafe. Eventually, the group hopes to raise an additional $300,000 to build a stateof-the-art spray park as well. It’s a lot of money, and a big project, but organizers say they’re approaching things realistically. “It’s definitely ambitious to set our sights so high,” says Crystal Benoit, librarian at the Dalmeny library and one of 18 people on the Dalmeny Spray and Play committee. “It’s an adventure, but we’re determined and the whole community is behind us so I think we have the momentum to accomplish this.” Benoit says the project will be built in several stages and each phase will be completed before the next one is tackled. “We’re not biting off too much at any one time,” she said. “We’re taking it a little bit at a time. That way the com-

munity can see concrete results in a reasonable amount of time and we can keep the fundraising campaign fresh.” Benoit said the need for a new playground personally hit home for her last summer when her kindergartenage son was injured after falling off the old-style teeter-totter. “There was nothing to cushion his fall,” noted Benoit. “I also talked to other parents whose kids had been hurt. I approached the school and asked about the condition of the play equipment. The school also has concerns, but it’s not school property. It’s town property that the school uses for the younger grades. There is another playground on school property, but it’s very busy. There’s basically a real need for another playground.” The old playground was erected years ago by volunteers and Benoit said it soon became apparent that any new playground would have to be done the same way. “The town is very supportive of a new playground,” she said. “Standards have changed over the years. But, it’s expensive and there are other needs, like streets and waterlines, that are higher priority.” She said the town council is fully supportive of the committee’s campaign. “The town doesn’t have the funds to build this so it’s up to us to step up to the plate,” she added. “We got together and formed a committee and it’s just snowballed from there.” Committee members include Benoit, Hailey Born, Jody Dreger, Shannon Floer, Katrina Funk, Cindy Goldfinch, Jodi Hershmiller, Michelle Kavanagh, Jon Kroeker, Chris Mason, Sean Mul-

ligan, Jeanette Nelson, Carrie Olynick, Crystal Spenst, Leah Tallis, Cynthia Wiebe, Darlene Zwack and George Zwack. The committee launched a website, (www.dalme nysprayandplay.webs. com), to promote the project and aid fundraising efforts. A “master plan” design drawing for the park is posted on the website. Benoit said at the beginning of the campaign a letter was circulated to gauge the level of support for the initiative. “We had a resounding ‘yes’ from the residents,” she said. “We have three phases for this project. The first is to build a new playground, the second phase is to create a spray park in the same general area and the third phase would be to build a skateboard park near the JJ Loewen Centre.” The playground, which will be used by both school children and preschool kids, is estimated to cost about $175,000, said Benoit. “We also have mapped out a larger plan to develop the park itself – with a parking area, picnic and garden area with a public gazebo and two soccer pitches – as well as upgrading the basketball courts and installing a washroom facility.” Benoit said the group has raised roughly $30,000 so far, mainly from the sale of cookbooks. They have also received about $20,000 in provincial Community Vitality grant funding. A fundraising ‘dot-mocracy’ pancake breakfast was organized last weekend for community members to vote on the type of playground structure they want and an ongoing “leaf sale” campaign is raising money through sales

Lexi and Claire Hershmiller cast their vote in the “dotmocracy” for playground equipment at the local grocery store. A licensed dance featuring a live band – “The Gong Show” – is scheduled for April 13. The group is also working to obtain corporate sponsorships. Benoit said preliminary work on the new playground could begin as early as this fall, although the actual installation of the structures likely wouldn’t happen until the spring of 2014. “It depends on the money and the amount of in-kind donations we are able to generate,” she said. “But it’s going very well right now and we expect to have enough to get started in a few months.”

The group hopes to have the new park dedicated to the late Corporal Shane Keating, who grew up in Dalmeny and was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2006 while serving with the Canadian Armed Forces. “Shane attended Prairie View School and Dalmeny High School,” she said. “His dad helped build this existing playground and his backyard was right alongside the park. It would be a fitting tribute to Shane to have a memorial plaque here to mark his sacrifice for his country and his community.”

COMMUNITY TAKING ON SEVERAL FUNDRAISING OPTIONS In a “dotmocracy”, a dot is a vote and every dot counts. Kids in Dalmeny used this method to vote for their choice of new playground equipment at a pancake breakfast on Saturday, February 23. It wasn’t just pancakes that lured families to the JJ Loewen Centre, it was a common vision to upgrade provisions for children’s play in the growing community. The plan is to create a multi-generational park involving a multi-phase proposal for completion. One of the innovative fundraising angles is to log fitness minutes. The Saskatchewan In Motion Community Challenge will give a $10,000 prize to the community that logs in the most minutes doing physical activity. The money goes toward projects that will help kids get out there and get physical. The challenge runs March 1-15 and participants can log up to 90-minutes a day by registering at challenge.saskatchewaninmotion.ca, beginning March 1. Participants don’t have to be a resident of Dalmeny to have minutes count toward winning the prize for the community, so supporters can spread the word to everyone they know. Organizers from the Intergenerational Spray and Play Park Project will be planning events to help people get moving – including a basketball night, a floor hockey night, as well as zumba and yoga events. The project has already raised $30,000 of the $175,000 needed for Phase 1. “100 Families, 100 Dollars” is another challenge to the community and beyond. Spray and Play Cookbooks are on sale at the grocery store, the pharmacy, Gettin’ Inked and Beautified or at the library. The committee urges everyone to attend their events and plan to volunteer at the Community Build Day. A dance with a live band, the Gongshow, is a licensed event coming up in April. ––KLASSEN

Provincial park reservation launch dates announced for early March The Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport has announced a staggered spring launch for camping reservations. Depending on the provincial park you plan to visit this year, you can reserve your site starting March 4, March 6 or March 8. The Saskatchewan Provincial Parks Reserve-a-Site service allows campers to book a campsite and pre-purchase their park entry permit so that they can travel to their favourite park with the confidence of knowing their site is assured. Campers can use the online site to view campsites, maps and availability, reserve a site and manage their bookings. A mobile site and call centre are also available. “In 2012 there were 60,000 online reservations made, with 13,500 booked on opening day of the reservation service,”

Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Kevin Doherty said. “This year, to improve the system and to spread out website traffic, we are opening the site with staggered launch dates.” To prepare for the Reservea-Site launch, campers should take the time now to log on, update their profile and check out the campgrounds that they are planning to book. There may be some changes or updates that they will want to know about in advance. Launch date and park locations are as follows: March 4 – North and Northwest Area including Anglin Lake; Bronson Forest (Peck

Retail sales climb in December Retail sales were on the rise in December, increasing 4.4 per cent (seasonally-adjusted) over December 2011 – the highest onrecord jump for the province in more than 20 years. According to a report released by Statistics Canada, this ranked Saskatchewan in first place among the provinces in terms of percentage change. Nationally, retail sales fell 0.7 per cent for the same time period. “Consumer confidence is a surefire sign of the strength of our Saskatchewan economy,” Economy Minister Bill Boyd said. “We have plenty of good paying job opportunities in every corner of this province and this is reflected in the spending habits of our Saskatchewan residents. More money in our pockets yields a higher quality of life for everyone who calls Saskatchewan home. Based on the strength of December’s year-over-year numbers, we are optimistic that retail sales will continue to see gains well into 2013.”

Dear Parents, Students and Community Members: The purpose of our newsletter is to provide all residents in Warman, Osler & area with information as to what is happening not only in education but in business, sport, community and the region. We believe that it is important that as a learning & highly involved community we share this information with everyone, not just the parents of students. Please feel free to call us at the school (933-2377) or at the city (933-1929) if you have suggestions or information for our newsletter.

WHS Running Track – Interested in walking or running? Please purchase a “Track Pass” from Warman High School. Cost is $30.00. This pass is good for the entire school year.

Bus Lane Parking – We would appreciate it if parents would NOT park in the bus lane when picking up or dropping off your child/children from school. We encourage you to use the south entrance of the school. Also, when you are entering the bus lane, please remember that the traffic is ONE WAY and that you MUST enter from Klassen Street. Entering from the Central Street cases traffic jams.

Bus Operations in Inclement Weather - Occasionally severe weather conditions require the school to cancel bus operation. The general guideline is that buses will not run if the combined temperature and wind chill results in a reading of minus 40 degrees Celsius or colder. On the days that buses are not running, Warman Elementary and Warman High School will still be open and will continue to have classes. Please note as well that on days when the buses don’t run in the morning, they will not run in the afternoon. ATTENTION: BUS STUDENTS Hot 98.3 FM, CHWW FM, Cruz 93.1 FM radio stations will be notified if the buses are not running because of weather conditions. WINTER APPAREL - A reminder to students and parents to dress appropriately for the weather. Students are coming to school dressed inadequately for weather conditions.

with Valerie Kirk Staying Motivated to Exercise ....Starting and Staying fresh for 2013.

Welcome. According to last year’s pole, 51% of the population made resolutions. Most of them focused on eating healthier, flossing and even saving the world. According to a study from the University of Scranton, the top resolution for polled respondents was to lose weight, followed by getting more organized and spending less money. Before you start making any kind of list, make sure you have a reason behind making that resolution(s). For example, maybe you want to fit into your ‘skinny jeans’ again, or see your grandchildren walk down the aisle, etc.. take time to remind yourself why you want to eat healthy and work out. When the reason means something to you and are important, you are more likely to succeed. Start small, maybe exercise twice a week and after a month move it up to three times per week. Making one small change a day can make a big difference, soon you will see changes in how you look and feel. To help you with these changes ask a personal trainer, nutritionist and/or dietition. Remember, always go at your own pace, and if you’re worried about trying a new food or exercise routine consult with an expert first. • Discounts and coupons available with bookings • Training available in my gym or a gym of your choice • Personalized one-on-one training

Cathy Inglis led her Yorkton team to a convincing 8-2 victory over Merle Kopach in the Saskatchewan Senior Women’s Curling Championship on Sunday in Martensville. Inglis got an early lead in the first end, going up by 3 over Kopach. Curling with Pat Kuspira, Donna Liebrecht and Bev Fuches, Inglis never gave it up. “Right from the start everybody seemed to be in a ready to play mode, and everybody felt good right from the start,” said Inglis. “The team played a really good first end and we were fortunate enough to capitalize on having last rock on the first end.” The Round Robin draw ran Wednesday to Sunday, February 20th – 24th and saw eight teams vying for the championship. Lorraine Arguin of the Moose Jaw club & Inglis were tied with 6-1 records before the final. Kopach toppled Arguin 9-8 in Saturday’s semi-final. Inglis acknowledged that the challenge is to hold onto an early lead. “It’s a little nerve wracking be-

cause you know you have a long game to try to hold that lead, but nobody let down and that made a big difference,” she said. “The pressure was on all the time and Merle’s team was going to have to really make

some great shots to come back, so that was the difference.” Inglis was gracious in victory, saying to Kopach, “We appreciate learning everything we can from you.” Kopach, of the Saskatoon Granite Curling Club, was referred to as timeless and ageless by the announcer, and still competes at the Master’s. Inglis commended the Martensville curling club. “It’s been a

wonderful five days. The host committee here has been just great, everything from the lounge to making us comfortable and just be able to go play,” she said. Inglis also spoke positively about the facility, the condition of the ice and having a violinist and other musicians for entertainment. The Inglis team has earned the right to represent Saskatchewan in the Canadian Seniors Curling Championship, coming up March 16-24 in Summerside, PEI.

WHO DESERVES PLAYER OF THE MONTH? There’s a tough choice on the horizon as the Blades look to name their Heinrichs Jewelers Player Of The Month for February. As of Monday, the Blades have won all 13 games that they have played so far this month. To go along with the great play as a team, there has been a great statistical push by a large chunk of the Blades. So far this season, three different Blades have taken home the honour of Player Of The Month: Darren Dietz (October), Matej Stransky (November and December), Lukas Sutter (January). Through 13 games so far in February, this is how the numbers break down:

Clavet skater brings home medal Submitted by

BEV FEDORIUK

President, Clavet Skating Club

Three Senior StarSkaters from the Clavet Skating Club attended the SkateCanada-Saskatchewan StarSkate Championships in Humboldt in January. This is a provincial competition, attracting skaters from across the province. Hayley Taylor and Katelynn Montgomery competed against 40 skaters in the Junior Bronze class. Being the first time they attended this competition, their coaches were pleased with their performances and the girls came away with some good feedback on their FreeSkate programs. Congratulations to Alison Fedoriuk who earned a gold medal for her Senior Bronze FreeSkate performance, as well as gold in the Senior Bronze Jumps and Spins events. This was Alison’s second appearance at the StarSkate Championships. As a result of her performance, Alison has been invited to skate at the “Saskatchewan Stars On Ice” Bursary Show held in conjunction with the Jean Norman Competition, hosted by Skate Saskatoon in March. The Bursary Show features the 2013 Canadian Senior Pairs Bronze Medalists – Paige Lawrence & Rudi Swiegers (from the Wawota Skating Club); Saskatchewan High Performance, Sask First & Competitive Development Skating Teams, as well as other accomplished skaters on the competitive circuit. The public is invited to attend the Bursary Show being held March 2 at 7:00 p.m. at Credit Union Centre. Tickets available at the door. This is a great opportunity to witness the high caliber of skating our province has to offer. Achieving success does not happen out of the blue. It takes many hours of hard work, determination and persistence. The Clavet Skating Club is very fortunate to have a fantastic team of coaches who lend their patience, knowledge and expertise to our skaters; Laura McLeod, Kayla Parker, Tracy Hancherow and Kiara Popoff. Kiara Popoff is one of Clavet’s own skaters who continues to skate alongside her coaching duties. Together, they deliver the Learn to Skate CanSkate

ping up its season with preparations for the ice show, we certainly welcome new members next season. The SkateCanada programs offered through the Clavet Skating Club are open to young people of all ages. A description of the programs, coaching information, session dates and registration information can be found on the club website at www.clavetskatingclub.ca. Inquiries are welcome at info@clavetskatingclub.ca.

Alison Fedoriuk of Clavet earned a Gold Medal in Senior Bronze FreeSkate performance Program, CanPowerSkate, the Junior StarSkate bridging program, and the Senior StarSkate program. The Clavet Skating Club is extremely pleased to announce we are a leader in implementing the new CanSkate Program launched by SkateCanada this past fall. The new Learn To Skate program focuses on developing good skating skills in a progressive manner focusing on balance, control and agility at all levels. Young skaters will develop a solid base for pursuing figure skating, ringette or hockey. A CanPowerSkating Program was offered through the club this season and was well received by many young hockey players. CanPowerSkate is an action-packed, high energy instructional power skating program geared to hockey and ringette skaters that focuses on balance, power, agility, speed and endurance. Skills, tech-

niques and conditioning drills are taught in a progressive format that emphasizes how the skills apply to game situations. In addition to the regular skating programs, Clavet Skating Club hosted the Region 8 CanSkate FunFest in February. The club congratulates the 35 skaters that participated in the event, including eight of our club’s own young skaters. We look forward to hosting the Region 8 InterClub Competition and CanSkate FunFest again next February. The Clavet Skating Club is well known for its annual ice show spectacular. Hours of preparation go into the production, but it is well worth it. This year the club presents “The Lion King”. The show runs Saturday, March 16 at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, March 7 at 1:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the door or in advance by calling Mandy at 384-2563. Though the club is wrap-

Gazette CLARK S CROSSING

The Chiefs won the first game 6-2 on Tuesday, February 19, then took a commanding lead on Thursday, February 21, earning a 3-2 come-from behind win. Delisle later went on to finish off the Westleys on home ice on Saturday, February 23, by a score of 6-3. The Westleys put up a good fight during the second game of the series on Thursday, jumping out to a 2-0 lead with goals in the first and second periods by Brennan Degenhardt and Dakota Wruck. Despite being outshot by a ratio of nearly 4-1, the Westleys made the most of their chances. That all changed in a heartbeat early in the third frame. It took less than three minutes for the Chiefs to turn the tables. Twelve seconds after the opening faceoff, Delisle captain Andre Lalonde rifled a shot past Westleys’ goalie Jay Okrainetz. Fourteen seconds later, Chiefs assistant captain Justin Kerr sent a low drive that found the back of the net, making it a tie game. Kerr, who also had an assist on the first goal, scored the winner a minute-and-a-half later. Lalonde registered an assist and AJ Climenhaga picked up assists on the first two goals. The other helper on the winning goal came from Brett Bieber. “We wanted to get the puck deep and manufacture some chances around the net,” said Kerr after the game. “On the first goal we got a lucky bounce and then Andre got past the D-man and got a good shot off. On the second goal, it was the same thing. We used the defense as a screen and I got it past the goalie on the blocker side.” Kerr said the come-from-behind victory is a real shot in the arm for the team’s confidence. “Anytime you come back from a 2-0 deficit in a playoff game, it’s huge,” said Kerr. “Now we know what we can do, so that just gives us a little more motivation to carry this into the next game.” Kerr, a veteran of last year’s team that went on a record-breaking winning streak that saw the Chiefs finish at the top of the standings – only to fall in the second round of playoffs – said the guys have learned from the experience. “This is my last year in junior and I want to have another good year and hopefully make it all the way to the finals this year,” he said. Chiefs coach Dave Norris said the team wanted to come out flying early in the third period. “I told the guys that what we were doing – getting lots of pucks on net – was essentially working, but we needed to score early and change the momentum of the game. If you can score quickly, you get your confidence up and you take the other team’s confidence level down a notch. And then it just snowballs from there.” Norris said the team’s game plan is to out-shoot the opposition and play a solid defensive game. Falling into a 2-0 hole early in the contest wasn’t on the agenda. “This was one of those gut-check games, and the guys came through,” said Norris. “That was good to see.” Chiefs goalie Lukas MacDonald faced 14 shots while his teammates peppered Westleys’ netminder Okrainetz with 42 shots on the night.

Streak still lives, but who have Blades beaten? They are the talk of the junior hockey world. Not all of it is positive or good! The Saskatoon Blades went into this week with a 15-game winning streak…the longest in the franchise’s 49-year history and the most consecutive victories by any W.H.L. team this season. “I knew we were capable (of putting this kind of streak together),” said Bridge City Bunch defenceman Dalton Thrower. “At the beginning of the year we were obviously having our ups and downs, but at some point we knew we were going to turn it around and I guess the month of February is the month for us and, hopefully, we can just keep it rolling.” Following a 4-2 loss to the visiting Edmonton Oil Kings on January 23, the Memorial Cup hosts sat in eighth place in the Eastern Conference. Ambivalence in Saskatoon towards the Blades was reaching record proportions and the reaction from outside the city towards the team, armed with a guaranteed berth into the C.H.L. championship tournament as the host, was becoming more critical than ever. Embarrassing was uttered more than once! The Bridge City Bunch hasn’t lost since then, out-scoring opponents 77-25 in the 15 consecutive triumphs…the resulting 30 points in the standings jumping them up to first place in the East Division and second seed for the first round of the Conference playoffs. But, the cynics aren’t impressed. They point to five of the wins coming against Moose Jaw, three more against both of Brandon and Swift Current plus single victories versus Lethbridge and Medicine Hat… all teams below the Blades in the standings with the eight

Warman Midget AA Wildcats round out regular season with winning streak By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

The Warman Midget AA Wildcats are heading into the Centre Four Hockey League (CFHL) playoffs on a winning note. The Wildcats finished their regular season schedule at home last weekend, crushing the Meadow Lake Stampeders 15-0 on Sunday, February 24 at the Warman Diamond Arena. The Wildcats beat the Prince Albert Midget AA Raiders 6-2 at the Legends Centre on Saturday, February 23. “It’s been a great season,” said Wildcats coach Todd Dyck after the game Saturday night. “This is the third year for the core of the team and a lot of these kids are 17-years-old – so they graduate this year – and this is their final kick at the can,” said Dyck. “We’re hopeful we can go all the way to the final.” Dyck, in his third year as coach, said it’s been a gradual process, but the team has gotten progressively stronger and more mature over the three sea-

sons they’ve been together. “In the first year we won only eight games,” he recalled. “We were in the bottom four of the league. Last year I think we won nine or 10 and we just missed the playoffs by one point. But, this year we’ve won 16 games so far and we’re sitting solidly in third place in a very competitive league. I think we have a good shot at going all the way and we could meet Northeast in the final if we stick to the game plan.” Logan Noln-Ens and Landon Volk each picked up a pair of goals for the Wildcats in the win over Prince Albert, with singles coming from Dalin Graham and McLaren Barker. The ‘Cats peppered Raiders goalie Logan Morhart with 47 shots, while Braedyn Lysak was solid between the pipes for Warman, stopping 26 shots. The only pucks that got past him were scored by the Raiders’ Zach Hurd and Austin Odnokon. In the game against Meadow Lake, the Wildcats tallied five goals in each period, outshooting the opposition 65-18. Dyck said while the team has

said. “Then, after Christmas, we put more emphasis on shooting and getting lots of traffic in front of the net. It’s paid off because now the goals are coming.” The defense has also been tinkered with as the season progressed, he noted. “I’ve paired up my two biggest defensemen, Leighton Jewell and Matthew Piper, and it’s been working well, particularly on the power play,” explained Dyck. “I also have two strong goaltenders and they’ve been pretty much sharing the load equally throughout the season.

If one guy is playing a little hotter, he’ll do two or three games in a row. But, overall, it’s been split pretty evenly.” While the Wildcats were eliminated by Beardy’s in the provincial Midget AA playoffs, Dyck said the players learned from that experience. “We probably weren’t as prepared or as focused as we should have been,” he said. “But now they know what they need to do to stay on track.” The playoff schedule and latest scores are posted online at www.centrefourhockeyleague. ca .
