Driver escapes injury in Highway 7 collision By TERRY PUGH

The driver of a half-ton truck miraculously walked away from a collision with a tractor-trailer truck on Highway 7 east of Delisle on Friday, October 4. The collision occurred at about 9:30 p.m. near the intersection with the Agrium Potash Mine access road, at a point where Highway 7 was widened. According to an eyewitness at the scene, an eastbound Dodge half-ton truck apparently crossed the centre line and into the path of an oncoming westbound semitrailer truck. The semi-driver crowded the shoulder of the highway in an effort to avoid the half-ton and thereby prevented a headon collision. However, the halfton sideswiped the rear end of the semi’s trailer, complete-

ly shearing off the half-ton’s driver’s side wheel. The force of the collision pushed the half-ton back across the highway where it ended up facing eastbound in the ditch on the south side of the highway. Delisle Fire Department and First Responders were dispatched to the scene, where they attended to the drivers of both vehicles. Neither the semi-truck driver nor the operator of the half-ton were injured. Warman RCMP also responded to the incident. The investigation into the collisionrevealed that alcohol or drugs were not a factor in the incident. The 21-year-old driver of the Dodge half-ton is facing charges of driving without due care and attention. Delisle Deputy Fire Chief Chris Thunstrom said the number of collisions on High-


The front wheel of this half-ton was sheared off as a result of a collision with a tractor-trailer truck on Friday way 7 is increasing. He notes that while there are more vehicles on the road, particularly in the past five years, the real problem is the speed at which most of those vehicles are travelling. “It’s not uncommon for the

It was an unusual sight for motorists on Highway 7 near Vanscoy last week. At 11:24 a.m. on Wednesday, October 2, Warman RCMP were called to the scene of a house blocking the highway. According to Sgt. Mark Ochitwa of the Warman RCMP detachment, the moving company was southbound with a newly-constructed home and were reportedly pulling back onto the highway when the house slid off its supports. The house blocked the highway, reducing travel to one lane. It took workers three hours to clear the roadway for normal traffic. No one was injured in the incident and the amount of damage is unknown. The driver was ticketed for hauling an unsecure load.

Mounties to issue speeding tickets to guys going 130 to 150 kilometers an hour on this road,” said Thunstrom. “And that’s also in winter, when road conditions are often very icy and treacherous. People just really need to slow down.”

The CIBC Run for the Cure event October 6 attracted 1,800 participants, including Lucie Proulx’s Warman team, Breast Friends Forever, who raised $2,075. The run is held annually to raise funds for breast cancer research. Proulx acknowledged the loving support from family, friends, neighbours and co-workers.

The RM of Corman Park is getting impatient as it awaits word from the provincial government on whether its proposed Official Community Plan (OCP) will be approved. The OCP, which would allow for increased residential housing density on rural acreages, was submitted to the province several months ago. The province has yet to deliver an official response. At the RM of Corman Park council meeting on Monday, October 7, two senior officials with the Community Planning Branch in the Ministry of Government Relations appeared before council to discuss the situation. Many ratepayers anxious to subdivide their properties were present in the council chamber’s gallery.

Public input process underway for mineral refinery By TERRY PUGH

A technical review by the provincial Ministry of Environment has concluded that Fortune Minerals’ proposed refinery near Langham meets acceptable environmental standards. But whether the multimillion dollar Saskatchewan Metals Processing Plant (SMPP) becomes a reality is up to the public, the RM of Corman Park, and the provincial Minister of the Environment. The project still requires approval from the Minister of Environment as well as a municipal development permit from the rural municipality. The site where the facility would be built is a 480-acre parcel of land located 2.5 ki-

lometers east of Langham in the RM of Corman Park. The provincial environmental review and its conclusions were released in September, 2013 by the Saskatchewan Ministry of the Environment, Environmental Assessment Branch (EAB). The EAB undertook the review in July, 2011 after Fortune Minerals submitted an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on the project. The provincial review evaluated the data supplied by Fortune Minerals and concluded the information it contained was sufficient to proceed to the next step. Both the company’s EIS and the EAB’s technical review document are now being opened for public comment. The documents are available at the Langham, Dalmeny and

Corman Park municipal offices, or can be found online. The SMPP is a $200 million hydrometallurgical processing facility designed to process mine concentrates into high-value metal products – specifically gold, cobalt, bismuth, nickel and copper. The raw metal ore for the facility would be sourced at Fortune Minerals mine in the Northwest Territories and shipped by rail from Hay River, NWT, to Langham.. The company estimates the SMPP will process approximately 65,000 tonnes of metal concentrate annually for about 18 years – after which the facility will be decommissioned. Fortune Minerals estimates the project will increase employment in the region by providing 85 new positions at the

refinery, with additional requirements for contract operating and maintenance jobs. The EAB technical review acknowledges that “several local residents and groups have expressed concerns” regarding the SMPP. Those concerns include the potential for groundwater use and potential contamination; storage and transportation of hazardous chemicals; waste management and storage; airborne emissions; and the impacts of associated infrastructure including road and rail systems and electrical transmission lines.” The SMPP would utilize groundwater sourced from the Dalmeny Aquifer, a layer CONTINUED ON PAGE 16

Input sought on mineral refinery

Ralph Leibel, executive director of community planning, told councilors the province has received a number of comments on the RM’s proposed OCP from neighbouring municipalities. Many of these municipalities, he said, have expressed concerns. In addition, several other provincial agencies – including Highways and Infrastructure, Agriculture and the Water Security Agency – have submitted comments. Leibel said his department’s intent is to ensure the new OCP is in compliance with the Planning and Development Act and that “provincial interests” are accommodated. Leibel said the Ministry is looking to make a decision “as quickly as possible,” but added it needs more time to work with the RM’s administration to make needed “adjustments” to the OCP. “This RM is situated in a critical growth area,” said Leibel. “There is a lot of opportunity for development and growth here and the question is how to facilitate that growth in a way that’s sustainable.” Len Kowalko, director of the Ministry’s Saskatoon branch of community planning, told council that the province is not asking the RM to hold off development. “The provincial government is certainly not suggesting any moratorium,” said Kowalko. “We have never said that. We simply feel there is a need to clarify some provisions in the OCP.”


Corman Park councilors, meanwhile, agreed to continue the discussions with the province, but aren’t convinced the OCP needs much tinkering. Division 4 councilor Gord Gunoff said allowing up to six residences per quarter section would not take any more agricultural land out of produc-

tion than the existing bylaws allow. “Right now, you can subdivide 10 acres from an 80 acre parcel,” explained Gunoff. “All we’re doing is asking for that 10 acres to be further subdivided into two five-acre parcels. That won’t make any difference in terms of the amount of farmland.” Gunoff said the RM needs additional revenue and allowing more residential single-parcel subdivisions would help raise taxable assessment. “We need money, there’s no two ways around it,” he said. “It’s been a long, hard struggle to get development going in this RM and I’m not willing to drop this or take it back to the ratepayers or even give the government more time. I’m certainly not accepting a moratorium for two years. That’s ridiculous.” Several councilors pointed out that preserving agricultural land doesn’t seem to be a priority when urban municipalities annex land in the RM for residential development. It’s also not a big concern for the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure when it needs land. Corman Park Reeve Judy Harwood referenced a letter received from the City of Saskatoon – dated September 4, 2013 – which urged a twoyear moratorium on new development in high-demand areas within Corman Park. The RM responded to that letter on September 20, arguing that there should be no freeze on development. “The City of Saskatoon’s wish for a two-year moratorium triggers a very strong response from our ratepayers and councilors,” said Harwood. “We were nervous that the province would simply go along with what the city is asking for, but we’re pleased you’re taking our concerns seriously. We look forward to seeing some progress on this soon.”

Suspended driver busted after collision, stop sign violations in Warman FROM THE CELL BLOCK Submitted by


On September 30 at 7:00 p.m. police received a call of a silver coloured Jeep in Warman that had run two stop signs and was driving erratically around the city. At 7:41 p.m. police received a call of a silver Jeep that had been involved in a hit and run collision on Central Avenue in Warman. The collision was minor but the Jeep had failed to stop. At 10:49 p.m. police received a call for assistance from a man who had encountered another man walking around Warman looking for gas. The man advised that he had run out of gas and that he was not from Warman and didn’t know where to go. When the passerby attempted to assist the man, they could not relocate his vehicle so he took the lost man to an area gas bar. Police later located the man and the silver coloured Jeep at a licensed premises in Warman. The man was identified and investigation revealed that he was at large on conditions not to

be in bars and not to consume alcohol. The man was arrested for breaching his recognizance and taken to police holding cells where he was held pending a court appearance. A 32-year-old Candle Lake man was charged with two counts of failing to comply with a recognizance and one count of driving while suspended. The man’s vehicle was seized for 30 days for being driven by a suspended driver. COCHIN MAN CHARGED On September 30 at 9:05 p.m. RCMP received a call of an erratic driver on Highway 16 in the vicinity of the Borden Bridge. The caller advised that he was almost hit by a white Chevrolet truck while traveling on the highway. Police located a vehicle matching the description on Highway 685. The vehicle was observed operating erratically and was stopped by police. The driver displayed signs of impairment and was arrested for impaired driving and taken to the police detachment where he provided breath samples that were over three times the legal limit. The driver, a 63-year-old man from the Cochin area, was later released on charges of impaired driving and is scheduled to appear in Provincial Court next

month. VANDALISM INCIDENT The Martensville RCMP is seeking the public’s assistance regarding vehicle vandalism that occurred in Martensville between between the night of Friday, September 6 and the early morning hours of Saturday, September 7. A truck parked on the 400 block of Bendel Crescent was vandalized. The suspect(s) purposely scratched the vehicle with an unknown tool. If anyone has any information regarding this incident or knows who may be responsible, they are asked to contact the RCMP or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477 (TIPS). DEAD END COLLISION On October 6 at 8:18 a.m. police received a report of a collision that had occurred on October 4 at 10:15 p.m. A 17-year-old Asquith youth advised that he had driven his car through a dead end and into a field where the air bags deployed. He advised that his passenger, another 17-yearold, received minor injuries as a result. The man advised that he did not report the collision that night because it was late. In Saskatchewan there is a statutory requirement to report a collision to police immediately following

any collision that involves injury or death, when alcohol is involved, when a vehicle requires a tow, when the vehicle is not registered, or when a vehicle is registered out of province. Failure to do so is an offence. The driver was issued charges for travelling at a speed that was greater than was safe and for failing to report a collision.

ed breath samples that were in excess of double the legal limit. The man’s vehicle was seized by police and he was released into the care of a family member. The accused is charged with impaired driving and having a blood alcohol in excess of the legal limit. The matter will be heard in Provincial Court in December.

DRUNK DRIVER NABBED On October 6 at 2:50 a.m. police were patrolling northbound on Highway 12 north of Saskatoon when they observed a vehicle operating southbound in the northbound lanes. The vehicle, a white 2010 Chevrolet Silverado pick-up truck, was operating in the left lane and the northbound police vehicle had to swerve to the right to avoid a collision. Police pursued the vehicle for a brief distance and initiated a traffic stop. The driver, a 37-yearold male from Saskatoon, displayed signs of impairment from alcohol. The man was arrested and taken to the police detachment where he provid-

TRUCK THEFT ATTEMPT On September 30 at 10:30 p.m. a man who was visiting a residence on Lyle Cres., Warman, was alerted that a man was in the cab of his truck, parked outside the residence. The truck owner went outside and confronted the stranger that was inside of his 2009 Dodge Ram truck. The man claimed that he had been kicked out of his house by his wife and was looking for someplace warm to stay. The owner of the truck excused the behavior and let the man go. The following morning it was discovered that the ignition of the vehicle had been tampered with and that the stranger had been attempting

to steal the vehicle. The suspect is described as male, Caucasian, 5’5” tall, slender build with a small goatee beard, brown hair and approximately 35 years of age. The man was wearing a ball cap. Anyone who knows the identity of this suspect is asked to contact police. The matter is still under investigation. CAT-NAPPING IN LANGHAM On October 2 at 10:13 a.m. police received a call from a Langham resident who advised that she had two cats disappear in August, another in September, and now a fourth in October. The complainant suspects that the cats are being trapped or stolen. Inquiries with the Town of Langham reveal the Town is not trapping stray cats and, as a result, the RCMP is investigating the matter as a theft. Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers or the RCMP. SHIRTLESS SCREAMER On October 3 at 1:00 a.m. CONTINUED ON PAGE 5

Population boom misses rural Sask.

Cameco situation worth a closer look


The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is going after Cameco, a Saskatchewan-based uranium producer. The CRA alleges Cameco sold tons of uranium at a low price to a subsidiary in Europe. That European subsidiary then sold the uranium for a higher price to customers around the world. As a result, huge profits were made by the European subsidiary and it paid much lower taxes to the Swiss government than what Cameco’s Canadian operation would have paid to Canadian governments. The allegation of course is that Cameco chose Switzerland to avoid high Canadian taxes, and did so illegally. If Cameco is found guilty of tax evasion, the Canada Revenue Agency should do what it does with any other company or taxpayer - try to recoup any taxes owing to the Saskatchewan and federal governments. To be sure, taxes can be a pain in the butt, but people and businesses should abide by tax laws enacted by governments. If individuals and businesses don’t pay their obligations, then everyone else has to pick up the slack to pay for policing, road repair, education and other government services. That much should be obvious to all. While everyone awaits the courts to rule on the Cameco situation, the provincial and federal governments should figure out what they will do if Cameco wins its tax battle. If this practice is completely above board and legal, Cameco won’t be the only company looking for a better tax deal in a different jurisdiction. Any changes proposed by the government should ensure top dollars are paid to the government for Canadian resources while maintaining a competitive rate/tax structure; one that continues to see large investments in Saskatchewan. Second, advocates for high taxes and big government should learn from the situation. After all, at the heart of this matter is the incentive to go to where lower taxes exist. Just as people shop around for lower prices so do businesses. When the Manitoba government raised its sales tax from 7 per cent to 8 per cent, the Canadian Taxpayers Federation was interviewed on a talk radio station in Brandon, Manitoba; not far from the Saskatchewan border. A gentleman called in and noted that people from Manitoba were already getting in their cars and shopping in nearby Yorkton, Saskatchewan due to Saskatchewan’s lower tax rate of 5 per cent. The gentleman suggested that an even higher tax rate in Manitoba would drive (pun intended) even more people to shop in Saskatchewan. Similarly, businesses in the western Saskatchewan border town of Lloydminster don’t have to charge the provincial sales tax on goods and services. This is done to support Sask businesses in the town, as there would be no way for them to compete with the Alberta side of the town that doesn’t have a sales tax. The point is that taxes matter. They matter to Cameco and they impact the decisions of everyday shoppers. But cutting taxes doesn’t automatically mean governments will collect less revenue. For instance, back in 2005 the general business tax rate in Saskatchewan was 17 per cent and the government collected revenues of $257 million. However, by 2010 the province had lowered the tax rate to 12 per cent and revenues were $1.1 billion. Yes, despite a lower tax rate the government saw revenues skyrocket. Why? Well, a big part of that increase was due to the fact investment poured into Saskatchewan as it became more competitive. Clearly, whether we’re talking a bit of savings on your grocery bill by shopping somewhere with a lower tax or a multimillion dollar investment, the government needs to be competitive with tax rates. Again, it’s important for businesses to pay what their tax obligations, and Cameco should pay every penny they owe if they’re found guilty. However, it’s equally important for high tax advocates to realize the Cameco situation is symbolic of the need for governments to be competitive in the first place.

For all the good news about Saskatchewan’s population booming past 1.1 million people, let us hope Premier Brad Wall isn’t forgetting about places like Davin.


Provincial Politics

Or, at the very least, let us hope his Saskatchewan Party government’s growth plan can somehow be extended beyond the city limits of Regina and Saskatoon and into those smaller rural Saskatchewan communities that remain the backbone of the province. For those of you who might have missed the Davin story, the 50-odd residents of the Saskatchewan hamlet 40 kilometres southwest of Regina were surprised to wake up to discover that Statistics Canada had declared their community as a “ghost town” with zero population. “Besides being insulting, this census mistake carries serious consequences for both the Ham-

– the largest quarterly increase in any quarter since Statistics Canada has been keeping such estimates. Given that the province’s population boom has neatly coincided with the election of the Saskatchewan Party in November 2007 and that the Sask. Party set growing the province by 100,000 people in 10 years as its goal, it’s something that Wall just can’t stop talking about. “Saskatchewan is the place to be in Canada right now,” Wall said in a news release. “We have the strongest job growth and lowest unemployment in Canada, and we have a great quality of life in this province. It’s a great place to find a job or start a business. It’s a great place to live and raise a family. It’s no wonder our population is growing.” And it is rather remarkable when you consider Saskatchewan took 77 years to grow from 900,000 to 1,000,000. But what’s sometimes been lost is how inequitable this growth has been. The lion’s share of Saskatchewan growth has been in the larger urban centres of Regina and Saskatoon that seem to

now be attracting large numbers of immigrants. In fact, the Conference Board of Canada recently crowned Saskatoon and Regina as the two fastest growing communities in Canada. Again, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this. The province’s motto, after all, is “From many people strength”. Nor can government realistically do much about it because people move to where they have more opportunity. And many smaller communities have little opportunity to offer. Settled on rail lines every nine miles to serve local agricultural needs in the days in the when traveling more than 30 miles a day was impossible, many are just no longer economically feasible. But, in all the hype over the great Saskatchewan population boom, there has been little discussion about the inequity of most of growth happening in Regina and Saskatoon and little of it happening elsewhere. Maybe Wall can’t do much for places like Davin. But maybe we need to focus some attention on making sure communities outside Regina and Saskatoon have as much opportunity to grow as possible.

Reader Opinions

Plenty of concerns with proposed Fortune Minerals plant On Thursday, October 3, I received an email from the Saskatchewan Dept. of Environment informing me that Fortune Minerals had submitted their Environmental Impact Statement to their department and that the department officials had responded to this Statement. Fortune Minerals hired a third party to prepare their Statement and it is a 100 page document, with added appendages. Saskatchewan Environment’s response document involves 13 pages of response. I find it quite interesting that 13 pages is all that is needed to respond to some 100 pages of very technical data. I encourage all other interested persons to take the time to review these two documents which can be found via internet at Published Thursdays by Jenson

let of Davin and the Rural Municipality of Lajord,” said Regina Wascana MP Ralph Goodale who represents the riding. Goodale and others blamed it on the 2011 voluntary National Household Survey that replaced the mandatory long-form census. It resulted in only a 68-percent response, which was well below the 94-per-cent-response rate of the traditional survey. Davin’s residents were considerably better natured about it, chalking it up to a computer glitch. In reality, however, it’s part of a decades-long trend for smaller Saskatchewan communities – one that’s not getting much better even with the province’s recent massive population boom. According to the latest Statistics Canada numbers (based on up-to-date health card information rather than the lessthan-accurate 2011 Census), Saskatchewan’s population was 1,108,303 as of July 1, 2013. That’s an increase of 106,255 since July 1, 2007. It also represents an increase of 20,757 from the previous year and a 6,895 increase from the previous three months

It is to be noted that the public has now 60 days to respond by written submission to the ministry regarding Fortune Mineral’s project and Environmental Impact Statement before it goes to the Minister of Environment for his final decision. After reading Saskatchewan Environment’s response I still have concerns about Fortune’s Project. There appears to be a reduction in the water drawn from our Dalmeny Aquifer but they still will be drawing some 190,000 gallons per day adding up to some 69.35 million gallons per year during normal operation and with a start up consumption rate is about 275,000 gallons per day.

imum draw down occur, local users would have to lower their respective pump assemblies. I am sure the Town of Langham and local farmers will be excited if this situation occurred. In times of future drought conditions this scenario would surely occur. I also find it interesting that 65000 tonnes of ore will be processed per year and yet 150000 tonnes of residue (waste placed in a storage facility) will be produced after this ore is processed. This residue, I quote, “will be scorodite, an iron-arsenate mineral which is generally stable with low toxicity and solubility”. “Generally”, what does that mean what makes it unstable? Contaminated water (called brine wastewater) continues to be disposed of by pumping it back down

through the Dalmeny Aquifer to the Mannville area. I have two concerns with this process. Firstly a contaminated substance will be pass through our aquifer for some twenty years and “what if” the pumping system becomes compromised? Secondly during this time of pending global water shortage and water purity can we afford to dump water into an area where it is lost to the natural water cycle forever? It also still worries me that Fortune Minerals is just a “junior Company” presently courting, off continent, companies for funding and impending sale. Will foreign companies adhere willingly to Saskatchewan and Canadian regulations? A concerned ratepayer Ken Crush

Warman city manager stepping down after rewarding career

Richard Petkau Vic Kessler

Wally Klassen



When Ivan Gabrysh moved to Warman in 2005 to take on the position of Town Manager, he expected it to be a challenge. He wasn’t disappointed. One of the fastest-growing communities in Canada, Warman made the jump from town to city status last year – it has more than doubled its population since 2005 – and the city has seen the number of municipal employees also double. There has been no shortage of challenges as the city tries to accommodate demands for increased services and more infrastructure. But it has also been “the most rewarding eight years of my life,” said Gabrysh in an interview at Warman City Hall on Thursday, October 3. “There have been some big changes in Warman and a tremendous amount of growth with a lot of new families moving into this community. I feel very fortunate to have played a role in that.” Gabrysh is stepping down as Warman city manager after eight years as the administrative leader. “I definitely have some mixed feelings,” he said. “I will miss the people I work with because they’re a great team. But it’s just time for me to make a change. Things are going really well with the City of Warman. It’s going to continue growing for the foreseeable future and it’s a good time for someone else to step in to the position.” Gabrysh began his municipal administration career 25 years ago in Hague, where he and his wife Bev had owned a restaurant. After several years in the private sector owning and operating his own businesses, Gabrysh decided to move into a career of public service. He had also done a one-year stint on the Hague Village Council in the mid-1980s, so he had a pretty good idea of what he was getting into. Gabrysh was the administrator for Hague when it made the jump from village to town status. “So I became the first town administrator in Hague,” said Gabrysh. “Likewise, I’ve seen Warman go from town to city status and I became the first city manager for Warman. Those are personal accom-

Evacuees brought to Warman as part of training exercise By JAMES TARRANT


Warman City Manager Ivan Gabrysh is retiring at the end of December after a 25-year career in municipal administration, including more than eight years at the helm of city hall plishments that mean a lot to me.” Gabrysh said he decided to make the move from Hague to Warman because he was looking for a bigger challenge. “At that time, in 2005, Warman was really on the cusp of the boom,” he said. “I could see that big things were going to happen here. At the same time, the position of manager appealed to me. It was more than simply being an administrator.” But Gabrysh stressed that there is a “team effort” at city hall. “It takes a lot of people working together to make things happen,” he said. “My door has always been open to everybody anytime they need to talk to me. That’s just the way I like to do things.” One of the highlights of the last few years has been the opening of the Legends Centre.

“Recreational facilities are very important for young families,” he said. “With the Legends Centre there’s the ice surface, the two gymnasiums and the connection to the school. It’s a focal point for the community.” The other highlight was the step up to city status. He said the celebration to mark the event one year ago provided insights into little-known aspects of the community’s history. “There is now a ‘sister city’ connection to Creede, Colorado, and that’s one of the places Bev and I want to visit when we do some travelling during retirement,” he said. Gabrysh said the move to Warman has been good for him and his family. He and wife intend to stay in the community after he officially retires on December 31 of this year.

The City of Warman’s Legends Centre received busloads of evacuees as part of Exercise Domino: a Multi-Agency Emergency Training Operation. The operation was spearheaded by the City of Saskatoon EMO, which partnered with the City of Warman’s EMO about a year ago. The goal of the operation was to assess whether the Legends Centre is a suitable facility to house evacuees during the event of a real-life emergency. On October 7 about 100 seniors were evacuated from Parkville Manor in Saskatoon around 9:30 a.m. and transported on metro transit buses to Warman’s Legends Centre. When the first bus arrived around 11 a.m. City of Warman and Red Cross officials greeted the evacuees on each bus, counted the seniors leaving the bus and asked each evacuee to register at a desk set up by the Red Cross inside the centre. When each evacuee was registered they were told to gather in the basketball court area where they were served a meal. The se-

niors were hosted for about two hours, then re-boarded buses to return to Saskatoon. City of Warman Mayor Sheryl Spence said it was a great opportunity to practise a real life emergency situation, and see if the Legends Centre is, in fact, a suitable place to host evacuees. “I think Warman was asked to partner in this matter because of the building. The people involved in this exercise thought the Legends Centre would be good in case of an evacuation,” said Spence. “We thought it would be a good practise for us as well. We haven’t had the opportunity to have an EMO practice in many years, so it was time to see if this building would suffice.” The last time the City of Saskatoon EMO staged a largescale emergency exercise of this size was six years ago in Martensville, said Saskatoon’s Emergency Planning Director Ray Unrau. “When you look at the Calgary floods or the Slave Lake fire, really what you could be faced with in a disaster is one widespread destruc-

Fire departments anticipate big crop of new recruits Warman Deputy Fire Chief Russ Austin is pleasantly surprised at the number of people who want to join the city’s volunteer fire department. “In 20 years of fire service and recruiting new members, I’ve never seen this kind of interest from people who want to become members,” said Austin in an interview on Thursday, October 3 at the Warman Fire Hall. “It’s unprecedented. We have so many good people applying that we can’t take them all.” The Warman Fire Department has an approved strength of 30 members. Right now, the department has 22 active members, said Austin. He added the growth in the region is the main reason for the need to increase firefighting and First Responder capacity.. “We’re blessed with not having a high turnover in the fire service, but it’s just at that point now where call volume and trying to provide service 24 hours a day with a volunteer base, means we need to hire more people. This year is likely going to be the biggest recruit class of firefighters that North Corman Park has ever had. “I’m hoping to hire five or six with this current hiring competition here in Warman, and possibly do a late spring or early summer hiring process as well.” It’s a situation that several

other fire departments in the North Corman Park Fire Chiefs Association (NCPFA) can relate to. They are also looking for recruits, and the response has been generally positive. The NCPFA is a mutual-aid organization of fire departments in Warman, Osler, Martensville, Langham and Dalmeny. The departments hold joint training sessions for new recruits beginning in early November, and alternate training locations in the various communities. Austin, who served for many years with the Martensville Fire Department before taking the full-time Deputy Fire Chief position in Warman, says with every volunteer fire department in the North Corman Park area hiring new members this fall, it could be the largest crop of recruits in many years. The hiring competition will be completed by the end of October, and on November 5, the new recruits will begin a sixmonth intensive period involving weekly training sessions to help them achieve North American standard certification for firefighters. It’s a gruelling training schedule, but Austin says the recruits are aware of what they’re signing up for. “We train all our firefighters up to the NFPA 1001 standard, which is the professional qualification for firefighters, so they do the exact same training modules that they would do at Brandon Fire College or Ver-

milion. It’s a standard that all our people have to meet.” Austin said once the new firefighters in Warman and Martensville achieve basic certification, they must take an additional 40 hour course to become certified First Responders. “Each department is responsible for administering their own fire department and first responder program, and not everyone does it the same. But each one works,” he said. “We think it’s important that all our firefighters also have that medical training so they can respond to whatever emergency situation they find themselves in.” Austin said by training together, the fire departments in the NCPFCA become familiar with each other’s equipment, and “speak the same language” when it come to tackling an emergency situation. He concluded that if a potential recruit is not accepted this fall, they are encouraged to reapply in the spring.

A fire in Martensville during the early morning hours of Wednesday, October 2 resulted in serious damage to the building. Martensville Fire Chief Kurtis Dyck said the fire occurred at approximately 3:55 a.m. The Martensville Fire Department responded to smoke coming from a building located at 423 Centennial Drive North in Martensville. “We responded with two engines and 15 firefighters as well as one mutual aid fire apparatus from Warman,” said Dyck “After an aggressive interior fire attack, the fire was quickly brought under control.” Fire crews were on the scene until 6:30 a.m. The cause of the fire was ruled accidental. The cost of damage to the building and contents was estimated at approximately $200,000. No one was injured in the incident.


Council approves funds for fire hall expansion By TERRY PUGH

The City of Martensville has boosted its budget for a new addition to the existing Martensville Fire Hall by $20,000. Martensville City Council voted to increase the amount set aside to build the addition at its regular meeting on Tuesday, October 1. The increase was needed to accommodate unexpected costs, according to a report prepared for the council. “The fire hall expansion and retrofitting to the building has encountered delays and scope additions to (the) scope of work,” stated the report.

The problem lay in the fact the contractor was not able to match the colour of the existing siding on the building. This may result in additional siding on the front of the entire building to mask the colour change. There are also costs associated with the drilling of piles and the extension of the ventilation system which have resulted in work being done through the winter. The fire hall addition is being built to accommodate a growing fleet of vehicles, and also for equipment storage. The original budget for the project, approved earlier this year, was $160,000. With the additional funds, the budget now stands at $180,000.

FALL 4 FOR 3 EVENT September 16 - October 13, 2013


Fire causes damage to Martensville building

A suggestion by a Martensville resident for a community garden received conditional support from Martensville City Council at its meeting on October 1. In a presentation to council, Coralie Lennea suggested that a community garden located on municipally-owned land would provide a number of benefits to residents. “It strengthens community spirit and brings people together,” said Lennea. “It encourages families to take on a project together, it teaches kids where food comes from, and it discourages vandalism.”

Lennea suggested that if council could allocate a parcel of land about the size of the average city residential lot, that would be sufficient. She volunteered to coordinate the project. Martensville councilor Terry Kostyna said he supported the concept, but noted that civic resources were very thin and no funds could be allocated to the project. The council reached a consensus that the people interested in establishing a community garden should work with Dave Bosch, Director of Recreation, to come up with options that may allow the project to proceed next spring.

Red Cross takes lead role tion and we never practiced that as fire, EMO or police together as one unit,” said Unrau. Unrau said some of the gaps identified on Monday included knowing how people with prior medical conditions can be assessed when being transported. Another gap Unrau said needs to be improved is the importance of radio range. Saskatoon EMO had difficulty communicating with Warman EMO officials while some of the buses were on route to Warman. Deanna Down, ERT Lead for the Canadian Red Cross, Saskatoon and area, said there are a lot of a factors involved when a facility is chosen to house evacuees during an emergency situation. In most cases the Red Cross is usually called in to administer and organize an emergency situation when a municipality’s resources are overtaxed to handle the emergency on their own. “We meet all their [evacuees] needs for food, shelter and clothing,” said Down. “Then we have personal services everything from soothers to

strollers to whatever. Quite often communities have very short notice that they are being evacuated so they don’t have time to pack, so we have to meet all those needs. We have agreements with different agencies for food, for clothing; all those agreements are set up.” Down added that when a facility is used for an emergency situation the building is closed off to the public, municipal officials, and even the media. “Once this place is set up it is their home,” she said. “It is like walking into their living room or bedroom, so the media and the general public are not allowed in the building.” The second day of the Domino exercise included a rescue phase, which was staged in several uninhabited buildings in Saskatoon’s McNab Park. According to a Saskatoon EMO press release, the RCMP’s helicopter 9 (Draganfly), the Saskatoon Police Service’s plane (Eagle 1), and a STARS air ambulance were extensively used and were highly visible throughout the day.

Warman Library moving to Legends Centre By JAMES TARRANT

The Warman Library will have a fresh new look in a brand new location when the library reopens to the public November 1. The library, which has been located on 101 Klassen Street for 30 years, will be moving into its own space inside the Warman Community Middle School, which is connected to the Legends Centre. The library will close down for the last two weeks of this month starting October 15 to prepare for the move. Tamara Shiels, who has been the librarian at its current facility for ten years, said planning for a move has been a long time coming. Shiels said the City of Warman hired a moving truck to help them with the transition, which she said will be a huge undertaking, but it is a move she is looking forward to. “I have been here a long time so I am looking forward to new shelves, new carpet, just a whole bunch of great new stuff,” said Shiels. “We have really outgrown this facility a long time

So here we are, another busy month for the hard working members of Warman Fire Rescue! We averaged over a call per day, continuing the pace we have come to expect in recent months. Our total number of calls responded to was 33, of which 20 were Medical / Public Assistance and 13 were Fire / Rescue related. That brings us to a yearly total of 186 calls responded to this year, and we are likely going to break the all-time number of calls record before the snow flies. With the growth in the area, that is to be expected just by the per capita statistics-even with the best efforts of the good people of Warman and area. We have also done proactive safety education reaching over 1,000 children and adults here in our great city this month, and a big thank you to our Fire Department members for volunteering so many hours of their own time to get the message out.

ago. “ In the library’s new location there will be more expanded space to allow for additional programs, comfortable seating, two circulation computers and a larger reading area for parents and children, said Shiels. When it was decided that the library would move into the Legends Centre, the library, which is part of the Wheatland Regional Library network, teamed up with the Prairie Spirit School Division. This agreement uses the resources from a municipality point of view and integrates it with technology, which means the entire community benefits, said Warman Library board member Richard Beck. Shiels said she is very excited about the partnership. “I am very much looking forward to the type of new ideas we can get by joining together; certainly having a larger collection. They have some wonderful books that I have wanted for our branch forever,” said Shiels. “We are also bringing in a lot from our collection to supplement that. It is going to have a really good collection.” Beck said he is hoping the new location will allow the library to do more community outreach programming. “There is that 400 seat theatre in the Legends Centre,” said Beck. “We are hoping to get some businesses to come down and do some seminars, and some educational program-

One extra reminder for those folks crossing Highway 11 into the north entrance into Warman: Be vigilant! The construction zone may or may not be running, so the cars that you think are coming at you at 60 km/h may actually be travelling at double that speed.

Celebrating a century

Langham senior looks back on 100 years By TERRY PUGH

Marie Penner of Langham has some words of advice for young people today. “I would say they are very, very lucky,” said Penner, who turned 100 years old on Wednesday, October 2. “They shouldn’t take things for granted. They have lots of things we never had, but they need to be respectful and kind to other people, and be good to their families.” Penner celebrated her birthday in style with her fellow residents of the Langham Senior Citizens special care home on October 2. A lifelong resident of the Langham area, Penner volunteered for many years in the care home before she herself made the move to the facility as a resident. Penner was born in Petrofka, a small commuity near Moscow, in Russia, on October 2, 1913. She spent some of her childhood years in the care of her grandparents on a farm. “My earliest memory is of my grandmother’s farm in Russia,” said Penner in an interview. “I q Marie Penner of Langham was about 3 or 4 years old, and I remember there was a stork that nested up on the roof of one of their granaries. Every year that stork laid eggs in that nest. I always asked that stork to bring us a new baby, but my aunt said I should ask the stork to bring us a cat instead.” The Bolshevik revolution in Russia in 1917 caused severe political upheaval throughout the

country, and many people in the rural areas fled the country as refugees. The political troubles intensified in the 1920s under dictator Josef Stalin. In 1925, when she was twelve years old, she emigrated with her parents to Canada, where they settled first near Herbert, Saskatchewan, and later moved to the Langham area. She went to work for neighbours, cleaning homes, making meals and doing domestic work to earn money. “I didn’t know any English when I came over here,” she said. “But I learned over the years. I didn’t get much schooling because I had to work, and it was hard work. I washed clothes and washed the floors and walls, and I had to make my own soap first.” When she was in her early 20s, she married a local farmer. “He was a very good man,” she said. “He passed away about twenty years ago, and I really miss him. He worked very hard and he treated me good. We never had any children, but I was happy. I loved living on the farm.” Penner said she milked cows every morning and evening. “At first we had eight cows, but then we just had six, so it was easier,” she said. “It was enough.” She said while she worked alongside her husband, there were two jobs he wouldn’t let her do. “One was picking stones,” she said. “Our land had a lot of stones, and he picked stones every spare minute he had. But he wouldn’t let me do that work. And he wouldn’t let me clean the barn, either. He was a good husband.” Penner said she and her husband got along on very little. “We had a few dollars,” she said. “But not much. We got by.” They couldn’t afford coffee, but made their own substitute

Martensville man competes in World Ironman race By JAMES TARRANT

It takes a lot of stamina to compete in an Ironman triathlon race, and Martensville resident Reg Rempel is training to take on the world. The Ironman World Championship race takes place in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, this Saturday, October 12. The race includes a 4 kilometer Pacific Ocean swim. The next leg is an 180 kilometer bike ride on a course where temperatures reach 30 degrees and in sections participants are subjected to 60 kilometer per hour winds. The final leg of the race includes a 42 kilometer run, which includes running through black lava fields where the temperature also skyrockets.

Rempel, who switched to the 55-and under race category in the Ironman this year, decided to try the triathlon about 10 years ago so he and his wife, who is a swimmer, could participate in a sport that they could both enjoy together. The largest aspect of competing in an Ironman race is the training beforehand and finding the time to train everyday, which is essential, but often a difficult commitment for some people, said Rempel. On average there are about 30 Ironman races worldwide, said Rempel. Participants only need to qualify for one race to participate in the Ironman World Championship race. He has participated five times at national Ironman qualifiers and this

year was the first time Rempel qualified for the worlds. He qualified for the World Ironman race during a national Ironman Canada race in Whistler, British Columbia Aug 25. “They took the top five in my age group. It varies in each age group. Most races in my age group they only take the top two or three. This particular time it was the top five so I just kind of squeaked in under the wire,” said Rempel. Rempel is confident with the running and biking legs of his triathlon races, but said swimming is something he needs to work on. Most triathlon athletes usually have 17 hours to complete an iron man. Rempel said his best time is 10 hours and 46 minutes. Rempel said he hopes to beat his

Wolverines dump host Royals By TERRY PUGH

The Warman Wolverines overcame a slow start to down the host Martensville Royals 4114 on Friday, October 4. Martensville looked promising out of the gate, leading 14-0 until midway through the second quarter. Brayden Heck got the first major when he ran for 40 yards to put the Royals ahead in the late stages of the opening quarter. Midway through the second, Reider Fee hauled in a long pass from quarterback Brody Kliewer and rambled 65 yards to provide Martensville with what looked like a comfortable cushion. But injuries to key players forced the Blue and White to shuffle their lineup and the Warman offense took full advantage of their opportunities. The Wolverines didn’t do themselves any favours in the opening two quarters, as two costly penalties negated a pair of touchdowns. It wasn’t until Warman quarterback Josh Misskey took matters into his own hands and scored on a 16 yard run late in the second quarter that the Wolverines actually got on the board. At the

intermission, the Royals led 146. But the roles were reversed after the half-time break. Warman picked up three touchdowns in the third quarter - one each by Simon Epp, Tyler Hume and Cole Balazsi. Epp recorded another major in the final quarter before the Wolverines put in their rookie backups. Jason Lindo got Warman’s final touchdown after taking a pass from backup quarterback Dominic Froese. Warman head coach Tyler Scheidt was asked after the game what the coaches said to the players during the intermission. “Off the record? Nothing nice,” Scheidt said, adding that slow starts have plagued the team all season. “Full credit to Martensville. They did some things we hadn’t seen before and it took a while to adjust.” Scheidt said the third quarter showed what the team is capable of. “I don’t know where that team was during the first half. Plus, the penalties really killed us. There are good penalties and bad penalties, and when you get two touchdowns called

back because of infractions that were nowhere near the play, those are the ones that really hurt you. We threw away 14 points in the first half. We need to have better focus and concentration on the mental aspects of the game.” For the Royals, it was the physical aspects that took their toll. “We just can’t seem to stay healthy,” said Royals head coach Lyle Evanisky after the game. “We lost some real key players, and then we had to shuffle guys into positions they weren’t used to.” Evanisky said injuries to Brayden Heck, Reider Fee, Morgan Fournier and others have thinned out the Royals’ ranks. “We have 34 guys on our roster, but we only had 24 dressed today, so we’re pretty thin anyway,” he said. “Now we’ll have to see how bad the injuries are. Our next game is against Meadow Lake, so that will be a tough

one.” Evanisky said he thought the backups did a good job, but had a big load to carry. “It’s hard for them to get thrown into the game in spots they’re not used to,” he said. “But full credit to them. They’re willing to step up and get in the game and bang heads for us, and I respect that. But we just need more bodies.” Martensville hits the road to play in Meadow Lake on Thursday, October 10 for their final regular season game. Warman also plays on the road on Thursday, October 10, taking on the Delisle Rebels in a game that will determine second place in the league. The Wolverines are 2-2 while the Rebels are 3-1. Game time is 4:00 p.m. The conference playoffs are slated for Saturday, October 19 and Warman hosts a home playoff game for the second year in a row.

Team claws their way to impressive win in B.C. What a difference a win makes! The Saskatchewan Roughriders snapped a fourgame losing streak in fine fashion, dumping the BC Lions 3217 Friday night in Vancouver and it’s got the club feeling a whole lot better about themselves as they begin a brand new week. The win not only snapped the dreadful slide, but it instilled some much-needed confidence as the club plows down the homestretch and it also kept their dream of hosting a home playoff game in 2013 alive. With four games to go, the Riders are two wins back of Calgary for first-place in the CFL West so finishing in top spot may be extremely difficult but second-place, and homefield in the Western Semifinal, is certainly within their grasp. And make no mistake, the return of tailback Kory Sheets from a three-game absence due to a knee injury was the catalyst for the victory. Sheets finished the night with 80 yards on the ground and a pair of touchdowns to ignite the temporarily stagnant Rider offense. “Honestly, I think me getting hurt was a good thing,” Sheets admitted upon the team’s re-

turn to Regina. “It allowed me to rest and get my legs back underneath me and that spells trouble for somebody!” Rider coach Corey Chamblin agreed with Sheets’ assessment although he said all 42 men on the roster fulfilled their obligations on Friday night. “Kory is one of the cornerstones of this team,” Chamblin said. “When Kory’s not in there, of course you have to make changes. But it was definitely good to get him back.” It would be a stretch to suggest that Sheets’s return allowed the Riders to dominate the line of scrimmage battle, but he just may have. The Riders won the sack battle 5-2 and one Vancouver reporter noted that the Lions “couldn’t get near Durant” for most of the night. I wasn’t in the Rider locker room after the game but Chamblin said the team celebrated as if it had won the Grey Cup.

Clearly there was an immense sense of relief to “Reverse the Curse” but, believe it or not, there was one player who wasn’t celebrating. It was brought to my attention by a Vancouver broadcaster who popped his head in our broadcast booth as B.C. Place was emptying and said, “This Geroy thing is going to be a major distraction for you guys the rest of the way!” I gave him a puzzled look and said, “What Geroy thing?” Well, as it turns out, Rider slotback Geroy Simon left the playing field in a huff and refused all postgame interviews. The game was Simon’s first return to Vancouver since the offseason trade which landed him in Regina. That attraction drew a season-high crowd of 37,312 and Simon was honoured with a special pregame video tribute. However, he wasn’t a factor in the game, catching only

a 13-yard hitch pass in the dying seconds which extended his consecutive-games-with-acatch streak to 184. No one really knows what Simon was upset about because of his self-imposed silence, but some observers surmised he would have rather seen the streak end than to be thrown a token pass for the sake of the record. The whole situation blew me away and left me shaking my head. But his team won the game! He’s the Riders’ highestpaid receiver at nearly $200,000 per year! What about TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More)? The next morning Simon tweeted “Great team WIN last night. Was great to play in B.C. Place again” so perhaps he had the opportunity to sleep on it and things didn’t look so bad the next morning. Or, as many have suggested, “someone spoke to him”. Let’s hope so because the Roughriders don’t need any more distractions the rest of the way. Lord knows they’ve had enough over the past month. And when the Riders acquired Simon in January, I can’t imagine this “ticking time bomb” is something they signed up for.




Blades look better in first win of regular season By WAYNE SHIELS

While the Saskatoon Blades have been hard-working and competitive, they entered October with their only win being against the Prince Albert Raiders in a pre-season game played in Warman on September 14. On Tuesday, October 1 against the Red Deer Rebels the Blades had some good chances in the first half of the game but couldn’t get the puck in the net, while the Rebels made the most of their opportunities to build a 3-0 lead. The Blades battled back with goals by David Nemecek and Collin Valcourt, before the Rebels scored an empty net goal to secure a 4-2 win.

The Blades next home game was on Saturday, October 5 when they hosted the Edmonton Oil Kings, and the start followed the previous scenario as the Oil Kings got off to a 3-0 lead. On this night, though, the ending was different as Collin Valcourt began the comeback with a goal before the end of the first period. In the second period Saskatoon’s Graham Miller scored his first WHL goal on the powerplay. Nathan Burns tied the score with a shorthanded goal early in the third period, before Blades Captain Graeme Craig scored the game-winning goal at 12:59 and added an insurance goal at 15:52. Blades Coach Dave Struch

was excited the players finally got their first regular season win. He felt the team started out flat, but really rallied behind the leadership of veterans like Valcourt, Burns and Craig “They took the rest of the team on their backs in the second and third period and we owe it all to our leadership team,” said Struch. The Blades host two more games in October when they play Swift Current on Friday, October 11, and Medicine Hat on Wednesday, October 30. Start time for both games is 7:05 p.m.

Hilltops running back Andre Lalonde scores a 34-yard run last weekend. Lalonde now has 1,294 yards rushing in seven games which means he has the single season rushing record for the storied 67-year-old Hilltop franchise. Lalonde ran for 222 yards and three TDs to help the Saskatoon Hilltops defeat the Edmonton Wildcats 29-20 at Gordie Howe Bowl on Sunday, October 6. The win, combined with a Regina Thunder loss to the Winnipeg Rifles, means that the Hilltops are assured of a first place finish in the Prairie Football Conference.The Hilltops will play their last regular season game when they host the Calgary Colts at Gordie Howe Bowl at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 13.

Input sought on mineral refinery of fine to medium grained sand mixed with clay, silt and rock that lies about 18 meters deep underground. This aquifer is used locally as a source of raw water by both landowners and the Town of Langham. Most of the concerns raised by critics of the SMPP focus on the potential for excessive drawdown of the aquifer levels, as well as the possibility of contamination of groundwater caused by leaching of waste materials from the refinery. During the past two years, Fortune Minerals has re-evaluated its potential water usage for the SMPP, and now indicates the operation would require 35 per cent less water than first predicted. The volume of water the company says it needs is 36 cubic meters per hour in normal operation, with 52 cubic meters per hour during the start-up phase. The company also indicates it has redesigned the facility to maximize the recycling of process water prior to disposal. The public review process opened on Saturday, October 5 and will close on December 6.

Saskatchewan wages continue upward Saskatchewan workers continue to be rewarded with higher wages, according to a report on average weekly earnings released by Statistics Canada today. For the month of July, average weekly earnings in the province were $939.58, the second highest in the nation and well above the Canadian average of $914.25. “In our new Saskatchewan, people are prospering as a result of better employment opportunities and the lowest unemployment in the country,” Economy Minister Bill Boyd said. “It provides people with more job options and leads to higher paying positions.” There was a 1.3 per cent increase in wages on a year-over-year basis, the third highest percentage increase among the provinces. Nine industries had increases, with the highest growth rates in services such as repair and maintenance at 13.9 per cent, construction at 9.1 per cent, and administration and support up 7.8 per cent. “Those higher wages are not only helping to improve the quality of life of the people of Saskatchewan, but are also a major contributor to economic growth,” Boyd said. “Record job numbers, low unemployment, growing population and higher wages are all supporting Saskatchewan’s economic success.”

Aberdeen’s Dexter Hoeber hauls in a successful 4th quarter convert in the back of the endzone

Aberdeen gives Outlook the blues By WAYNE SHIELS

The Aberdeen Crusaders picked up a valuable road win, defeating the Outlook Blues 57-33 on Thursday, October 3. The Blues opened the scoring when quarterback Ryder Friesen ran for a touchdown. Aberdeen tied the game before the end of the first quarter as quarterback Ryan Maruschak scored on a 9-yard run. Maruschak increased the lead to 18-6 with TD passes to Dexter Hoeber and Brett Gareau. Outlook scored on a TD pass to Jason McPherson and made the score 18-14 with a successful dropkick on the convert. The teams exchanged majors as Aberdeen’s Mack Medernach scored on a 31-yard run with 1:05 left in the half and Outlook responded when Ryan Larocque threw a TD pass to Friesen with seconds remaining. Unsuccessful converts on those touchdowns resulted in a 24-20 half time lead for Aberdeen. The Crusaders had the only score in the third quarter as Maruschak scored on a 1 yard QB sneak. A pass to Dexter Hoeber on the convert

made the score 31-20. Madernach scored early in the fourth quarter on a 9-yard pass and then completed the convert on a pass and run play. Aberdeen’s defence came up big as they forced a fumble at mid-field and the offence were able to score on the resulting drive as Maruschak was successful on another 1-yard sneak. Maruschak then hit Hoeber in the back of the endzone on the convert. Outlook scored on a long pass and run play to Friesen but Aberdeen responded as Medernach scored on a 74-yard run. Outlook’s Ryan Larocque then ran the ensuing kickoff back for a touchdown. Mederach scored on another TD run to make the score 57-23 and the defence closed the game as A.J. Rettger intercepted the ball with just seconds remaining on the clock. Aberdeen coach Justin Olnhoff was very pleased with the game and the effort of his team. “It was a tough fought game. These were two small squads. We brought 12 players, they had 14 on their bench. Both teams went out and played their best and our boys came away with the win.”

The Dalmeny Curling Club is hoping to earn back faithful curlers when the club’s curling season opens November 1. Over the past few years the club has experienced setback after setback to the curling rink’s ice-making equipment, which prompted the closure of the rink’s curling season in 2011 and 2012, said Dalmeny Curling Club president Ed Slack. “Right now our goal is to drum up as much interest in curling as we can. We have about 200 school kids that use the facility as part of their curriculum, said Slack. “We have other people like 4-H and the church groups that will use it for occasional events. Then we also offer rentals to families and businesses.” In 2011, leaks discovered in

sand base in the Dalmeny rink also has its share of challenges because of the unevenness of the base, said Gordon. “It usually takes one hour, sometimes it takes two because the sand is so dry. It usually takes about 30 floods before we can paint. We started last Thursday and we are still hoping to be flooding by next weekend.” When all is said and done, Gordon explained that the ice will be about one-and-a-half to two inches thick when compete. When Gordon applied for a volunteer position with the Sochi Olympic Games in January, he wasn’t expecting to be accepted. “Out of the 250,000 volunteer applicants only 25,000 are actually going to be able to go to Sochi and I am one of them.” Gordon added that his food and accommodations will be paid for at the games. The only expense he needs to cover – aside from spending money – will be the airfare to Russia and back. There are four national curling ice-making levels; Gordon is currently a level two and is hoping with his international experience to be one of the toplevel icemakers in the years to come.

the brine lines (the cooling line or refrigerant system that goes to the ice surface of the ice) ended the club’s season in 2011. Slack said shortly after that problems were discovered with the compressor in the hockey rink, which is next to the curling rink. The history of the Dalmeny Curling Club goes back to the early 1980s. Artificial ice was also introduced around this time. “Artificial ice was a big thing then. The town ran the plant until the mid 2000s. At that time they built a new hockey arena and the brine line was connected from the curling rink to the hockey rink,” said Slack. Slack explained that the brine line was connected this way as a cost saving measure because membership was dwindling in the club and the costs were rising for an independent plant. The brine line between rinks ran that way for about six years until serious leaks in the brine line coming from the curling rink caused the town to make the decision to shut the brine line off in 2011. Slack said the town was looking into getting the brine lines tested that year, but later decided not to because fixing the line and hooking it back up to the compressor in the hockey rink would overload the compressor. In 2012 the

town replaced the compressor in the hockey rink, which prompted Slack to see if the town could help the club resurrect its 2013 season. Slack said at first there was some reluctance because of the preceived lack of membership interest. “We got together and petitioned the town and told the town it was a use it or lose it situation,” said Slack. “The town was very supportive. We got about 400 signatures. We presented it to town council and they agreed to go forward with the repairs and reopen the rink.” This spring the town fixed the brine lines at the curling club at a cost of $20,000, said Slack. “There is about a 200 yard distance between the two buildings. So they excavated the entire line. It was a tough decision for council, but we were very thankful that they did. Everybody supported us on that.” Slack said Town of Dalmeny administrator Shelley Funk played an integral role in helping the club reopen this year. “It was a process to find out the right thing to do and decide whether investment in curling going forward is going to provide a return,” said Funk. “It is more about what the right use of the building is and how it fits into the culture of the community.”

Rebels deliver convincing win over Kindersley By TERRY PUGH

For the seond time this season, the Delisle Rebels put on a show under the lights for their hometown fans, downing the visiting Kindersley Kobras 44-2 on Friday, October 4. “These night games are great for the community,” said Rebels head coach Ken Byers after the game. “For the players, it’s ‘Friday Night Lights.’ They’re living the dream, hanging out with their best freinds in their small town. It’s a cool experience for everybody.” After the club’s annual night game on September 27, a local business stepped up to cover the cost of the light rentals, and volunteers in the area made sure it happened again. The Delisle Fire Department even got in on the act, shooting fireworks every time the Rebels scored a converted touchdown. Despite the lopsided score, the Kobras actually put up a tough fight. It was a scoreless game through the first quarter until the final two minutes,

Hanley beats LCBI The Hanley Sabers continued their winning ways last week, rolling over LCBI (Outlook) 36-30 in a hard-fought game on Friday, October 4. Both teams scored early, but Hanley led 30-16 at the half. “We had many long plays and a couple of touchdowns called back due to penalties,” said Hanley coach Mark Anderson. “We really struggled in that area of the game.” The Sabers are looking to continue their perfect record heading into the final game of the regular season. They host Gull Lake on Thursday, October 4 in a battle of unbeaten teams. Game time is 4:00 p.m. in Hanley.

when Delisle finally registereded a major. The Kindersley defense accounted for the Kobras’ only scoring, forcing the Rebels to concede a two-point safety in their own end zone midway through the second quarter, making the score 7-2 for Delisle. Delisle scored late in the second quarter, and added another just before the half to give Delisle a 21-2 lead. The Rebels added two more touchdowns in the third quarter, plus a field goal and major in the fourth to round out the scoring. Dane Arnsten was a workhorse for the Rebels, accounting for three touchdowns and much of their offensive punch. Quarterback Kyle Richardson, Torrin Schumacher and Sam Michnik registered the other Delisle touchdowns. “Dane’s a beast,” said Byers. “A couple years ago Logan Frohaug was our big offensive threat. This year it’s Dane. He’s a nice weapon to have, but we

try not to over-use him.” Byers said despite the Rebels’ 3-1 record, which has them solidly in second place behind the Meadow Lake Spartans, there’s still room for improvement heading into the final regular season game and the playoffs. “We have one more regular season game against Warman, and that will be a test,” he said. “If we win that one we’ll lock up second place and have a home playoff game, but we have to clear up some mental errors if we expect to get further in the playoffs. We can’t afford penalties at this stage of the season.” Delisle hosts Warman on Thursday, October 10 in Delisle. Game time is 4:00 p.m.

Clavet picks up pair of wins The Clavet Cougars collected a pair of road wins, recording a 6-2 win over Humboldt on September 26, and edging Nipawin 22-21 on Thursday, October 1 in Nipawin. The Humboldt game was played in miserable conditions. “The wind and rain were not fit for any type of sea creature, and the game on the field was a literal mess,” said Clavet coach Shaun Priel. “Humboldt scored a single late in the second quarter, and took a 1-0 lead into the half. We scored the only touchdown of the game as Gared Marcotte stripped the ball from Humboldt’s runing back and scored on a 9-yard return.” Humboldt added a punt single in the third quarter. “I was proud of the effort the kids put in that game,” said Priel. “Weather conditions were brutal, but the players focused on their game and we earned

our first regular season win over Humboldt since joining 9-man football.” The game in Nipawin was a higher-scoring affair. Clavet’s Graham Beresh scored on a 65yard run. Bailey Royer added a 7-yard running touchdown and Caleb Haight hauled in a 13yard touchdown pass from Graham Beresh. Injuries to two key defensive players forced backups on defense, namely Ryan Walchuk and Reece Sorenson, to step in. “Nipawin is a big strong, hard-hitting team,” said Priel. “Fortunately, the win allowed us to secure first place and gives us a break for two weeks until the provincial quarter final game on Saturday, October 26. This will be the first time since we left 6-man football that we will be hosting a playoff game in Clavet and the whole team is excited.”

Chiefs unveil new dressing room to start PJHL season




The Chiefs made the move from Saskatoon to Delisle six years ago, but this year, the growing town about 40 kilometers southwest of Saskatoon really feels like home. The Delisle Chiefs celebrated the opening of their new dressing room on Thursday, October 3. The dressing room, attached to the Delisle Arena, is a stand-alone structure that was moved to the site last year. After countless hours of volunteer labour, plus lots of financial help from corporate sponsors, individuals and groups in the community, it was finally ready for occupancy just as the new season got underway. “The players and coaches finally have a place they can call home,” said Wes Noon, one of the owners of the team. “It’s really going to make a difference to this hockey club in so many ways.” The building was originally an office used by Bayer Crop Science in Rosthern. It was donated to the Chiefs after the team’s head coach, Dave Norris, approached the company to see if it was available. The building was moved to its current location in 2012, but it needed to be completely gutted and redesigned to fit the needs of the Junior B hockey club. Team owners Wes Noon, Gordy Ouellette and Geoff Peakman, along with Norris and other volunteers with the team, spent countless hours demolishing the interior and salvaging fixtures. Anything that could be re-used was either incorporated into the new layout, donated to the

Delisle Chiefs owners, coaches, volunteers and players celebrated the opening of their dressing room last week Delisle Arena, or given to Habitat for Humanity. The original baseboard electric heaters were taken out to allow construction of player benches and stalls, and an overhead, energy-efficient electric heater installed in the ceiling. The former washrooms were converted to an eqiupment storage room and a trainer’s room. The original office area was largely left intact and became the coach’s office. The building is attached to the original dressing room wing of the Delisle Arena, and the Chiefs will continue to use the washroom and shower facilities in one of those dressing rooms. “It was just too expensive to add water and sewer to this building,” explained Noon. “It would have meant replacing water and sewer lines for the entire arena, and that would have been over a million dollars. So the boys can get by with the existing showers., obviously.” Noon, who is originally

from Seattle, bought the team six years ago because of his passion for hockey. A certified electrician, he recently moved to Saskatchewan, where he said there’s no shortage of work for people in his profession. This winter, he’s planning on moving to Delisle. “I love this community,” he said. “It feels like home.” Chiefs coach Dave Norris said the new digs will help the coaching staff provide better instruction to the players. The room has a “smart TV” with an interactive white board that allows diagrams to be drawn on the screen, helping coaches illustrate plays. “The visual examples will certainly help,” said Norris. “It’s pretty cool. I’m excited about it.” Chiefs third-year forward Stacy Campbell, originally from Macklin, says he’s looking forward to providing leadership to the younger players this season. “It’s a good team,” Campbell said. “I think it’s one of the

Chiefs split season opening games The Delisle Chiefs lifted the lid on the new Prairie Junior Hockey League (PJHL) regular season last weekend by splitting a pair of games at home. The Blue and Gold came out on the wrong end of a 6-1 score against the Saskatoon Quakers on Friday, October 4, but rallied back to edge the visiting Ochapowace Thunder 5-3 on Sunday, October 6. Rook-

ie Josh Reinbolt picked up the lone marker for the Chiefs in Friday’s game, while adding a hat trick in Sunday’s contest. Ashton Donnelly and Kynan Tarnowski each contributed one goal in the win against the Thunder. Goaltender Lukas MacDonald got the start for the Chiefs in the game against the Quakers, but was pulled early in the second period and re-

placed by backup Tyler Peakman. Peakman got the start in Sunday’s game, stopping 29 of 32 shots. The Chiefs took on the Saskatoon Royals on October 8 following the Gazette press deadline. Delisle’s next home game is Saturday, October 12 when they face the Prince Alert Icehawks followed by a visit to Kerrobert to battle the Rage on October 13.

best in the league. They look out for you and it’s like family. The league itself is very competitive and there’s a lot of talent on every team. My goal is to help get this team into the playoffs and win the Keystone Cup.” Lukas MacDonald, a goaltender obtained last year in a trade with the Saskatoon Quakers, said the new dressing room will help foster the team atmosphere. “It’s a great bunch of guys,” he said. “We can hang out before and after practice here.” Josh Murray, also in his second year with the team, is looking to score more goals this year. “I just want to help the team out in any way I can,” he said. Ashton Donnelly, a forward with a knack for scoring goals, says last year’s disappointing finish provides motivation to do better this year. “We had the Quakers on the ropes in that series. But we just couldn’t seem to pull the trigger. This year we need to bear down. I think the experience from last year will make everybody more determined It’s going to be a good season.”

Whitecap Dakota First Nation: A true economic development success story With thousands of people visiting every day, Whitecap Dakota First Nation is an exciting place to be. Visitors come down for a round of golf at the Dakota Dunes Golf Links or a bit of fun at the Dakota Dunes Casino while some of them are commuting to work at the estimated 600 jobs located on the reserve. All visitors arrive via Chief Whitecap Trail, once a rough, narrow highway that has become one of the newest and nicest highways in Saskatchewan because of a vision, strategy, and partnership. It’s the perfect metaphor for Whitecap Dakota First Nation. Just over two decades ago Whitecap like many rural communities and first nations was struggling with lack of services and high unemployment. These days Whitecap Dakota First Nation can proudly boast of an unemployment rate fewer than 4 per cent and first class infrastructure. Whitecap is now a community that is prosperous, innovative and investment ready. The vision for economic development came from the community and the leadership of Chief Darcy Bear and Council. The Whitecap Development Corporation (WDC) is the engine that turned that vision into a reality. The WDC is a for profit corporation dedicated to increasing wealth and opportunity for the Band and it’s through the WDC that business partnerships and investments are created. A major part of the WDC’s overall strategy for growth has been to make Whitecap competitive and accessible to investment. As a result of that work, sophisticated zoning and servicing standards for available land have been

developed, as well as flexible financing options, competitive pricing, and tax incentives. The result has been partnerships that have produced a world class golf course, a highly successful casino, local retail businesses, and much more. Whitecap is situated just 15 km south of Saskatoon in a beautiful river valley surrounded by natural dunes. As a tourism destination it has all the natural ingredients to be a winner. In order to complete that vision, a major focus for the WDC has been the development of a resort hotel property which will be located adjacent to the Dakota Dunes Casino and the Dakota Dunes Golf Links. Construction of the 159-room hotel and spa will begin this fall. The Dakota Dunes Hotel will feature conference facilities, a high quality restaurant and a physical connection to the Dakota Dunes Casino. It is slated to open in 2015. Once completed the Dakota Dunes resort will be one of the highest quality tourism resorts in Saskatchewan and will provide hundreds of jobs within the community.

ice arena. In order to realize their goals the WDC has learned that developing partnerships is the best way to do business. Whether it’s through investment dollars or shared expertise, every major success story for Whitecap has been the result of a partnership, and it is how they will continue to operate. That’s how business is done at Whitecap, a big vision, backed up by planning and analysis, made possible through partnership. If you’re interested in available opportunities or commercial land at Whitecap Dakota First Nation please visit

This resort is just the beginning. Future projects include the development of a light industrial business park, a resortresidential sub-division and a twin-surface

SREDA Trade Investment Mission Update It’s been an exciting year for the SREDA International Investment Attraction program. On July 8th, SREDA attended and organized a second Investment Mission to China. The objectives of the two missions were to inform and to promote investment from abroad to the Saskatoon Region. We are quite proud of the work we have started in China, and as a follow-up to our April Mission, SREDA was on hand in Beijing for the announcement of the formation of a new Potash development project for Saskatchewan. The Merger of Canada Potash Corp. and Gensource Potash of Saskatoon. The merger will culminate in a new solution mine development worth upwards of $3 billion once fully built. The second leg of our trip took us to three other Cities (Chonqching, Hanghou, and Shanghai) , promoting the Saskatoon Regional Advantages and supporting the efforts of Brightenview International (known as the Dundurn Megamall). We had an opportunity to present to over 300 interested investors during the course of the trip.

Contact Us:

Events: The Team also had an opportunity to visit, see and witness the working model in Yiwu City. The Largest consumer commodities trading area in China. Over 70,000 exhibitors are contained in the complexes with over 35 million square feet on site and an additional 19 million off site. State of the art logistics’ capacity and the ability to purchase from over 17 million different products, this was a sight to witness. In follow-up to the visit, SREDA and its partners are looking forward to the return visitations from China. The visits will be an opportunity to showcase the opportunities in our entire region. Keep an eye on the SREDA website for updates. Hope you are having a great summer. Stay Safe! TDL
