Their memory lives on



Remembrance Day on Monday, November 11 provides Canadians with an opportunity to honour the sacrifice of those who gave their lives so that others may live in freedom. Many Saskatchewan communities erected commemorative monuments to preserve the names – and the memory – of those who never returned home from World War I, World War II, and subsequent conflicts. A few of the monuments include those in (left to right) Dundurn, Langham, Delisle, Warman and Aberdeen. Remembrance Day services are scheduled for November 11 in many communities, including Warman, Borden, Radisson, Dundurn and Saskatoon.

Highway temporarily closed following rollover, diesel spill By TERRY PUGH

The rollover occurred when a southbound semi-trailer truck hauling a load of gravel attempted to make a left turn onto Highway 305. RCMP Constable Bill Rowley said the truck’s brakes apparently failed to engage, or the vehicle was travelling too fast to negotiate the turn, resulting in a rollover. The driver of the truck was not injured in the incident. The semi-trailer truck was hoisted back on its wheels by a tow truck shortly before noon, and environmental workers took steps to contain the diesel fuel spill. Personnel from the provincial Ministry of Highways also arrived on the scene to assess any potential damage to the highway. The intersection is currently undergoing construction as part of the upgrading and re-routing of Highway 305 between Highway 11 and Highway 12.

A spill of diesel fuel from an overturned gravel truck semitrailer resulted in the closure of a portion of Highway 305 at the intersection with Highway 12 north of Martensville for several hours. The incident occurred shortly before 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, October 30. Warman RCMP officers and Martensville Fire Department responded to the rollover and sealed off the intersection. Highway 305 traffic was diverted through Martensville along Centennial Drive. A crew from an environmental cleanup company was dispatched to the scene to deal with the diesel fuel spill. An unknown quantity of fuel leaked out of a ruptured fuel tank from the overturned truck onto Highway 305 and the north ditch of the roadway.


Martensville firefighters and workers with an environmental cleanup company used an absorbant material to soak up spilled diesel fuel at the intersection of highways 305 and 12 on Wednesday, October 30

A crash on Highway 7 two kilometers west of Vanscoy left two vehicles in the ditch. Two people were treated for minor injuries on the scene.

The 42-year-old male driver was pronounced deceased at the scene. His name is not being released. Alcohol is not considered a factor. Road conditions at the time were icy. MD Ambulance also reported other injuries related to the weather including falls and at least one case of cardiac arrest of an elderly male clearing snow. Davies said paramedics expect increases in calls related to icy roads and sidewalks. Davies reminded motorists to slow down.

A new sealed-bid process is now underway for establishments to obtain available offsale outlets. Previously only hotel taverns and brew pubs were eligible to operate an off-sale outlet. Now any liquor permitted establishment, including restaurants and stand-alone bars, are eligible to operate an offsale. Available off-sale outlets will be awarded through a sealed bid process. Caps on the number of offsales per municipality (based on population) will remain. “The sealed bid process provides an objective way of allocating available off-sale outlets,” Minister responsible for Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority Don-

na Harpauer said. “And maintaining caps on the overall number of off-sales help ensure a balance between accessibility to alcohol and the need to ensure that alcohol is sold responsibly.” There are currently 17 offsale endorsements available in the municipalities of: Aberdeen, Arborfield, Candle Lake, Halbrite, Hubbard, Lintlaw, Marengo, Pilot Butte, RM of Brock, RM of Coalfields,

Veteran felt lucky to return home By JAMES TARRANT

If you were to ask veteran Otto Ulrich about World War II, it wouldn’t be too long before he would show you his scrap books or his medals earned for service to his country. Ulrich, who is originally from Southey, Saskatchewan, but now resides at Primrose Chateau retirement facility in Saskatoon, said when he thinks of November 11 he is reminded of his friends that didn’t return home. “We were fortunate in my family. I only had one brother. We were both very fortunate to come back,” said Ulrich. “When I think about Remembrance Day, I think: ‘what if I had not been able up come back?’ It hits you a little bit.” When Ulrich graduated from high school, he wanted to study petroleum engineering, although money was an obstacle, which is where joining the military came into the picture. “I joined the air force and I was going to stay in three years to earn enough money to go to university,” he said. “Then the war came along and I was in the service.” Ulrich’s joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in the early 1940s and started off as an arrow engine mechanic. He retired with the rank of squadron leader, which is the same as the major rank in the army. In his over 25 years of service Ulrich has trained pilots and was stationed with a reconnaissance squadron over the North Atlantic watching for submarines and foreign vessels. He ferried large aircraft across Canada, and winter-tested aircraft in British Columbia. Ulrich said the toughest part of his service was investigating accidents. “It is quite a different feeling when there is nothing left of the individual or the airplane,” said Ulrich The comraderie between air and ground crew is what he relished the most from his military service. “Everyone kept in touch and felt good that we were doing what we had to do during the war,” said Ulrich “We were also quite concerned when we lost people. We always had a good relationship with the air crew. “They depended on those chaps on the ground.”

Health region ready for large uptake at flu clinics By TERRY PUGH

A young Otto Ulrich (above) poses in his Canadian Air Force uniform in Yorkshire, England in the early 1940s. Ulrich proudly displays medals he earned in the Canadian Air Force. Ulrich retired from the Canadian Airforce in 1966. Ulrich said he participates in Remembrance Day services in Saskatoon every year and wants people, especially the youth, to realize the sacrifices men like him made for their country.

The Saskatoon Health Region (SHR) is bringing in extra nurses for flu immunization clinics in Warman and Martensville this month. “Last year, the sheer number of people at the Warman clinic kind of caught us off guard,” said Karen Grauer with the SHR. “There were a lot more children at the Warman clinic than we were anticipating, and there were a few lineups. “This year we’ve improved the flow-through and added more staff, so we can move people through in a more efficient way and give more immunizations in the same amount of time.” There were also lineups at the Martensville clinic, said Grauer, and the SHR is bringing in additional nurses for that community as well. The usual number of nurses at a clinic is 10. This year Warman will see 14 nurses and Martensville will have 13 nurses on duty. Grauer said the average rural flu immunization clinic attracts about 200 people. A clinic in Aberdeen on

October 30 attracted 190 people. “That tends to be the point where it is worthwhile to send staff out and set up a public clinic,” said Grauer. “Last year, at the Warman clinic, we had about 700 people, and a lot of them were small children, so that increased the time needed for each immunization. Kids need extra attention because they’re scared of needles.” Grauer said the Martensville clinic last year wasn’t quite as packed, but it still attracted more than the average. “We had 525 peoople in Martensville last year,” she said. “In both centres, we were very busy.”


The SHR does 49 public flu immunization clinics throughout the region, and 30 of those are in rural communities. So far, said Grauer, the SHR has administered over 22,000 vaccine doses, and anticipates a total of 75,000 people will be immunized by CONTINUED ON PAGE 25

Golden Age Superstars Max Bentley’s flashy style earned him the nickname ‘Dipsy-Doodler’ By JAMES TARRANT

They said he was too small and too sick to play in the NHL. But when the “Dipsy-Doodler from Delisle” rushed the puck the length of the ice everyone took notice. That “Dipsy-Doodler” was NHL Hall of Famer Max Bentley. Famous for his fearless drives to the net, Max Bentley was a superstar in hockey’s golden age. He was constantly in motion and earned his famous nickname because of his unmatched finesse with the puck. In the 1940s and 1950s, Max’s speed and stickhandling were matched only by his older brother, Doug Bentley. In the early 1940s, when they played together with the Chicago Blackhawks, the brothers formed an explosive offensive combination with flashy Winnipeg centre Bill Mosienko. History would call them the Pony Line. It’s been 60 years since Max and Doug Bentley retired from the NHL, but in their home community, the brothers are legends. Delisle is where the Bentley brothers grew up, and where they retired after their glory years in the NHL’s golden era. Their roots run deep in the rich prairie soil southwest of Saskatoon.


The Bentley brothers made it to the NHL on the strength of hard work and natural talent. And it’s easy to see how they came by those traits when you look at how they were raised. The Bentley family had 13 kids: six boys and seven girls. They all played sports, and it didn’t matter whether it was hockey, curling, tennis, or baseball, Somebody among the Bentley siblings won at least one championship in all those sports at some point.


In the years following the Great Depression of the 1930s, the Bentley brothers were household names. They became NHL legends who inspired generations of hockey players and teams from Delisle and the surrounding area. Max Bentley played 12 seasons in the NHL for the Chicago Blackhawks, Toronto Maple Leafs and the New York Rangers. During his tenure in the NHL, he was a two-time winner of the Art Ross Trophy as the league’s leading goal scorer; and he won the Hart Trophy in 1946 as the league’s Most Valuable Player. Max also had four All-Star appearances, won three Stanley Cups with the Maple Leafs and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame (HHOF) in 1966. Doug Bentley played 13 years with the Chicago Blackhawks and the New York Rangers. He also played on four All-Star teams and was the scoring leader in points and goals during the 1942-43 and 1943-44 seasons. Doug was inducted into the HHOF in 1964. Former NHL goaltender Jack Norris of Delisle, who is featured in a special commemorative sports heritage calendar published this fall, said the Bentley brothers made a positive impression on him. “When I could see what Max and Doug were doing in the

NHL, it inspired me to work hard like them,” said Norris. Norris played for the Boston Bruins from 1962 to 1967, when he was involved in a three-player deal that sent him and another player to the Chicago Blackhawks for a then little-known player named Phil Esposito. Ironically, years later when the Montreal Canadiens decided not to protect one of their goaltenders, the Blackhawks dropped Norris to sign that Canadiens’ prospect who happened to be Tony Esposito. Norris also played for the Montreal Canadiens and the Los Angeles Kings before retiring from the Edmonton Oilers in 1976 when the team was part of the defunct World Hockey Association. Another player equally inspired by the Bentley brothers is Delisle Bruins coach Barry Oviatt, who said he learned everything about coaching from Max Bentley’s son, Lynn. “The Bentley impact in Delisle has been huge,” said Oviatt. “It is a big part of Delisle’s history. It is a good thing for young kids to look back and realize that if they do put their nose to the grindstone and get good coaching, and good parent and community support, they can do the same thing.” Avis Carr grew up with Max and Doug Bentley. Carr’s father Jack was the oldest Bentley brother. When Jack’s wife died in 1931, Carr was still a small child. She moved into the Bentley household where she became like a kid sister to her young uncles. At the time, Max was only 11 and Doug was 15. Carr said growing up with the boys was a lot of fun because their lives revolved around sports. “As a child I had to get out on the street with a goalie stick and they would be playing with a tennis ball,” she recalled. “During the winter, when I got big enough, we would be down on the creek outside town.”


Even though Max and Doug are the most famous of the Bentleys, there were actually six bothers that played professional hockey. In fact, they were on the same team at one time.During the 1939 Drumheller Miners hockey season, the team featured five Bentley brothers: Doug, Max, Scoop (Wyatt), Roy and Reg. Having all those players with the same surname which caused a lot of confusion for game announcers. Even when they tried calling the brothers by their first names, they all looked so much alike the announcers couldn’t tell them apart, recalled Carr with a laugh.


Carr said even in the early days, most people in Delisle had an appreciation for how talented Max and Doug were, but never dreamed that either one would ever play in the NHL. According to the HHOF Max Doug was a described as a complete player who combined tremendous speed with a natural goal scoring ability. It didn’t start off that way. The Bentley brothers’ road to the NHL involved a lot of persistence. At age 16, Max first tried out for the Boston Bruins, but was told he was too small. Both Doug and Max then

tried the Montreal Canadiens to see if the Habs would give them a chance. The Canadiens sent Doug home because they thought he was too small. The Habs were also concerned about Max’s pale complexion and sent him to the team doctor. When it was discovered that Max had a bad heart he was also sent home. Before and during his career, Max often complained of dry throat, burning eyes, an upset stomach and ulcers. He also had diabetes and kidney trouble, according to the HHOF website. Max Bentley’s wife Betty, who currently lives in a Saskatoon care home, said that Max’s health issues didn’t prevent him from playing well. “When he played for Chicago the players used to wait for him to come to the rink,” said Betty Bentley in an interview recently in her home. “They would ask, ‘how are you feeling Max? Are you feeling okay? Max would say, ‘oh I have been so sick and I have a sore throat. They would hurry to the dressing room to get dressed fast because they knew they were going to win.”


During the Bentley’s reign with the Blackhawks, both brothers teamed up with sniper Bill Mosienko to form one of the most famous offensive combination’s in the history of the NHL. The trio were called the Pony Line because they were small but quick. (Mosienko still holds the NHL record for the fastest hat trick ever - 21 seconds.) Max and Doug played together for five years before a 1947 trade sent Max Bentley and Cy Young to the Toronto Maple Leafs for Bud Poile, Bob Goldham, Gaye Stewart, Gus Bodnar and Ernie Dickins. “It was a trade that favoured the Maple Leafs, as Max helped the Leafs win three Stanley Cups,” said Avis Carr. It was also a trade that should never have happened, said Max’s son, Lynn Bentley. “It’s too bad they didn’t trade that whole line to Toronto,” said Lynn Bentley. ”They traded five players to get Max. That line would have been a dynasty forever.” Max and Doug were eventually reunited when they both played for the New York Rangers during the 1953-54 season, in what turned out to be the final year in the NHL for both brothers. Avis Carr stayed with Max’s family in New York that entire season. Max returned to Saskatchewan, where he toiled with the Saskatoon Quakers for five seasons before he and his brothers decided to play in California for the Burbank Stars. Max’s son Lynn also played on the Stars and helped that team win a championship in 1962.


Max and Doug Bentley and their lesser-known brothers hold a place of honour in the Delisle arena. But recently, the community decided to let the world know about Delisle’s famous sons. To commemorate

Delisle sports heritage honoured By JAMES TARRANT

(Left to right) Roy, Scoop (Wyatt) ,Reg, Doug and Max Bentley suited up for the Drumheller Miners in 1939 the legacy of Max and Doug Bentley, the town of Delisle will be erecting a sign on Highway 7 in honour of the NHL legends. Lynn Bentley said the sign is long overdue.

“It would have been nice if it was done years ago when they retired,” said Lynn. “But the main thing is they are doing something now and that is good.”

A version of the new sign slated to be erected in the Town of Delisle

Nancy Durham of Delisle is proud of her community’s sports heritage, and wants to share that history with others. Earlier this fall, she and a group of volunteers put together a calendar to showcase the accomplishments of other hockey players and teams from minor to professional leagues. On October 18 the calender was unveiled at the Delisle Community Hall. The calendar includes a variety of Delisle athletes who made the professional ranks, as well as teams that won provincial, national and western Canadian championships. All funds raised from the sale of the calendars will go towards recreation, said Durham. “The proceeds from the calendar will help pay for the new roof on the rink. We produced about 250 calendars, which sell for about 20 dollars each,” she said. “We had a lot of people buying them for gifts so we will have to do another production of them.” Putting the Bentley brothers on the front cover of the calendar was an importantt, said Dunham. “For two of them from our town to be in the Hockey Hall of Fame is really something. They have been famous for 50 years,” said Durham.

Successful finish to course for area’s newly-minted firefighters The latest class of recruits with the Warman, Osler, Martensville, Dalmeny and Langham fire departments were certified as full-fledged firefighters on Friday, October 25. “After a year of training, these firefighters have now been certified provincially to the NFPA 1001 Standard – the same training standard used by every fire department in North America,” said

Warman Deputy Fire Chief Russ Austin. “They have put in a lot of hours and an immense amount of dedication to get to this point, and I am proud to have taught some of their training. They are a great group and will be an asset to their home communities.” The graduating class took their final practical test at a site just north of Martensville on October 25, demonstrat-

ing their skills in performing tasks inside a smoke-filled building. The next class of recruits was scheduled to begin their six-month intensive training course on November 5. The North Corman Park Fire Chiefs Association is a mutual-aid organization that includes the fire departments of Warman, Martensville, Dalmeny, Osler and Langham.

Teachers vote against tentative contract Saskatchewan teachers have rejected a proposed tentative contract. But so far, there is no indication of any potential job action, and the teachers say they’re committed to negotiating a fair deal. The Saskatchewan Teachers Federation (STF) said on Thursday, October 31 that 73 per cent of the 12,403 ballots cast by teachers were opposed to the proposed four-year deal, which would expire in 2017. Teachers have been without a contract since August 31, 2013. “Teachers have spoken clearly,” said STF President Colin Keess. “Teachers are looking for change in relationships and supports for teaching and bargaining.” The STF President said teachers’ are concerned over heavier workload stemming from “increasing diversity in Saskatchewan classrooms,” as well as increasing class sizes and the lack of consultation

with teachers over curriculum and assessment changes by the provincial government. The provincial government and school board trustees expressed disappointment their offer was rejected by the STF. “The Government-Trustee Bargaining Committee negotiated a fair, reasonable and competitive offer to the STF that, if ratified, would have resulted in its members being some of the highest-paid teachers in the western provinces,” said Government-Trustee Bargaining Committee spokesperson Connie Bailey. “We entered into the bargaining process in good faith and we had a very strong offer on the table.” The Government-Trustee Bargaining Committee said it offered teachers a total of 6.5 per cent increase in salary over four years, including a 5.5 per cent salary increase and a one per cent lump sum payment over the first two years.

Rural Saskatchewan must get more from boom

Political involvement without understanding is ill advised


There’s nothing like a good scandal to get people paying attention to politics. Be it the Senate spending scandal that has been in the headlines for some time and — arguably — dominating them since Senator Mike Duffy’s allegations last week; or the once-againfresh one surrounding Rob Ford’s alleged use of crack cocaine, Canadians are taking renewed interest in the systems that, ultimately, shape much of our lives. This is a good thing. Political apathy has been too rampant for far too long in Canada. According to Elections Canada, for the past five elections — dating back to Nov. 27, 2000 — voter turnout has never broken 65 per cent. The closest it has come to breaking that plateau was in the 2006 federal election, when turnout hit 64.7 per cent. Further, Canada is only five years removed from its lowest voter turnout at 58.8 per cent. Put simply, fewer than two thirds of Canadians have cast a ballot in any federal election held within the past 13 years. There are many hypotheses addressing this shortfall, but few amount to anything beyond an excuse: Canadians — especially young ones — are disillusioned with the process; they don’t understand it; they find it boring when held against the politics of other nations; or, they are sick of the “bully tactics” employed by political leaders. The tune changes from the moment a scandal breaks out. Just as it was simple to find people willing to wax on about Ford’s mayoralty when allegations surfaced from Gawker and the Toronto Star that he had been recorded smoking crack cocaine, it is now ridiculously easy to find people calling for the abolition or reform of the House of Sober Second Thought. And it isn’t hard to sift out those who have been paying attention to politics beyond the immediate headlines and those who haven’t. Quick inquiries about the context of a particular scandal tend to achieve the goal. As established, attentiveness toward and engagement in politics is not a bad thing, but the problems arise when Canadians begin to get involved in systems they don’t understand.

One might not necessarily know it from the number of new half tons one sees on rural Saskatchewan’s main streets, but smaller communities aren’t benefiting as much from the boom. Or at least, they are not ben-

efiting as much in a long-term way where it really counts. Take the recent figures in overall Saskatchewan student enrolment that has increased to 170,582 after stagnating around 160,000 for most of the last decade. Nineteen of 29 school divisions reported increased enrolment from last year. However, that growth is hardly equitable. For example, Sun West School Division had 4,990 students in 2005-06, but only 4,544 students registered for this year. By contrast, Saskatoon School Division had 20,306 in 2005-06, but 22,167 this year. It’s the old frustration of the depopulation of agricultur-

al-based rural communities while the cities grow. Even in this period where most school divisions across the province are at least holding their own, overall, they aren’t doing as well. For this, one can hardly fault the Saskatchewan Party government. This is the age-old reality in our province. In fact, some might be inclined to credit Premier Brad Wall’s administration for reversing Saskatchewan’s de-population trend. But more irksome is the way Sask. Party government is now addressing growth issues where small and rural-based Saskatchewan businesses aren’t likely to benefit as much as they should. At issue is the government’s plan to build nine needed new schools through a public-private partnership (P3) model to meet overcrowding. That most of these schools will be built in Saskatoon and Regina (ironically, Regina has been in the business of closing schools in the past 10 years) is a given. The government cannot be blamed for that. But what’s less acceptable is that even in rural-based communities like Martensville

and Warman that will also get schools, it’s quite possible that local contractors won’t get much of an shot at bidding. That’s because of the bulkbuild-bundle model the government is choosing. According to Saskatchewan Construction Association (SCA) Director Mark Cooper, it boils down to the government’s decision to “bundle” all nine schools under one contractor for approximately $50-million each. This is actually a hefty per school price tag, well in excess of recent school costs so it would seem that the savings are not to be had. Cooper said a similar bundled model for Alberta schools is not only costing more because there aren’t enough bidders but also is defeating the intended purpose of this type of contracting to get things built quicker. In fact, 19 P3 model schools being built in Alberta under this bundling concept will likely be delayed because of a lack of bidders. Even Alberta’s Wildrose Party is now taking exception to the plan and for good reason. The SCA director explained that if you are an electrical contractor in Martensville

who wants to bid on the contract for the local school being in your community, you will likely have to bid on the electrical contract for the other eight bundled schools. This means that such small contractors – including those in rural communities – will likely be shut out of the process. That makes doing business in rural Saskatchewan that much less viable – the very thing that makes longterm declining enrolment in rural Saskatchewan a self-fulfilling prophecy. This is troubling and even the Sask. Party government had its past qualms about the P3s for schools. Five years ago, former education and now Finance Minister Ken Krawetz rejected the P3 model four schools because of added costs over 25 years. The Sask. Party government needs to be smarter to ensure rural communities and smaller businesses take advantage of this boom. Maybe we do need to build these schools quickly, but it can’t come at the cost of actually widening the inequity between rural and urban Saskatchewan.

Harper said Wright had acted honourably, trying to protect taxpayers while helping a dear old friend, and that he had Mr. Harper’s full confidence. Then suddenly, Wright was gone – thrown under the bus with Duffy and all the others. Mr. Harper can’t seem to say whether Wright resigned or was fired. And that’s not the only contradiction. Mr. Harper’s first story was that Wright acted all alone without another soul knowing about the $90,000 cover-up. But police investigators have identified at least four other people who were involved and media reports have run that list up to a dozen or more, all in Mr. Harper’s closest entourage. On and on it goes, including the troublesome question of whether the Prime Minister’s

Office actually manipulated audit proceedings in the Senate and whether they counselled a Senator or others to lie to Canadians, as Duffy alleges. Significantly, every single participant in this mess was appointed or hired by Mr. Harper. They were given their authority by him. They did his bidding and were accountable to him. Now he must be accountable to Canadians for their conduct, and for what he knew, and when, and what he did about it. And, if he didn’t know, how could he and his staff be so utterly incompetent? Canadians have every right to know. For Mr. Harper to say he “couldn’t care less” just reinforces the stench of scandal and cover-up. Ralph Goodale Regina-Wascana MP

Reader Opinions

Prime Minister ‘couldn’t care less’ about Canadians Most Canadians have never voted for Stephen Harper. In the current ethics scandal engulfing his government, most Canadians don’t believe Mr. Harper any more than they believe the three now-impugned celebrities he hand-picked for the Senate (Duffy, Wallin and Brazeau). Most Canadians know the fault in this scandal lies only in part with those fallen Senators. Mr. Harper himself has a lot to answer for, because he appointed and empowered them. His closest minions orchestrated a lengthy, elaborate cover-up of their mis-doings (especially Duffy’s), and now Mr. Harper is trying to deny his undeniable responsibilities for what went so terribly wrong.

Most Canadians would like to see a little candour and contrition, and some genuine accountability. But instead, they saw a sneering Mr. Harper shouting into a microphone at the Conservative Convention last Friday that he “couldn’t care less” what most Canadians think. Such a carefully planned slur shows startling disrespect for citizens, voters and taxpayers. He then went on to say he would “do the right thing” – or did he mean the “Wright” thing – that is, perpetuate the cover-up designed by his former Chief-of-Staff, Nigel Wright. The facts scream out for some decent explanation. Duffy’s difficulties with

where he actually lives and the expenses he claimed began to attract significant media attention last December. On February 11, Duffy had a meeting in the Prime Minister’s Office to discuss his increasingly messy situation, and on February 13, Mr. Harper says he ordered Duffy to repay his expenses. Then everything goes black. For the next three months, Mr. Harper says he never noticed how his orders were being carried out, nor was he ever briefed by Wright or anyone else, nor did he ask a single question. During the blackout, $90,000 was paid to Duffy by or through Nigel Wright (the actual source of funds is unclear); another $13,500 was Published Thursdays by Jenson

paid to Duffy’s lawyer by the Conservative Party for “legal fees”; the course of a forensic audit by Deloitte was impeded; a Senate report on Duffy was re-written by Conservatives to minimize its findings; and a communications plan depicted Duffy as an honourable man, showing leadership on his expenses by mortgaging his house to repay them. Duffy has since alleged that all this was a nefarious scheme concocted in the Prime Minister’s Office, and that he was coached by the PMO to lie about the home mortgage deception. On May 15, news broke that Nigel Wright had paid Duffy’s expenses, not Duffy himself. For five days, until May 19, Mr.

City stick handles through potential rink shutdown Chlorine confirmed, but repairs can be done quickly By TERRY PUGH


The new Warman branch of the Wheatland Regional Library was a hive of activity when it opened for business on Friday, November 1. The library is located on the second floor of the newly-opened Warman Community Middle School, and is accessible during and after school hours from the main school entrance and also from the Legends Centre upper level. The Warman library had been closed for two weeks while staff moved books and equipment into the new premises. At left, library patrons Mary Adrian of Warman (left) and Gaileen Adrian of Saskatoon picked up some new titles. Above, head librarian Tamara Shiels checks out books for a class of students.

The Legends Centre ice arena has dodged a bullet, and will stay open while repairs are carried out on its internal heating and cooling system. There was speculation that the arena portion of the Legends Centre may have to be temporarily shut down for anywhere from two days to several weeks while glycol in the pipes was drained, flushed and cleaned, and fresh glycol fluid pumped in. But the good news is that the job can be done without disrupting the normal operations of the Legends Centre or the middle years school, according to Warman Recreation and Community Services Manager Paul McGonigal. In an interview on October 31, McGonigal was visibly relieved that the ice arena would remain open. “It’s a big weight off everyone’s shoulders,” said McGonigal. “It could have been a lot worse.” McGonigal said user groups, including the Warman Minor Hockey Association, won’t have to reschedule any games or practices. There will also not be any disruption of ice rentals. McGonigal had alerted user groups earlier in the week to explain the situation. Fortunately, there was no need to shift any groups to alternate venues. “It’s business as usual,” he said. “The bottom line is that we’re going to be able to address the problem without any major inconvenience to any of the user groups.” The corrective action is necessary because high levels of chlorine were detected in the glycol currently circulating in the pipe system. Chlorine is corrosive and can cause severe damage to pumps and other mechanical components of the

heating and cooling system. Test results by two independent laboratories in the United States were received on Thursday, October 31. The labs confirmed high levels of chlorine are present in the glycol which circulates throughout the Legends Centre building, the ice arena and the Warman Community Middle School.


McGonigal said mechanical engineering staff with three separate companies will work together to correct the problem. Each of the three companies is responsible for a separate area of the overall heating and cooling system. The Legends Centre building, the Legends Centre ice plant and arena area, and the Warman Community Middle Years School all share a common piping system. “Everyone is agreed that the glycol that’s in the pipes right now has to come out,” said McGonigal. “There is no question about that. The chlorine cannot stay in the system.” McGonigal said the engineers determined that they are able to segregate the three portions of the facility by closing off certain valves in the system. This would enable them to drain and then recharge the arena portion of the sytem within a single day. “They’re going to start late one evening, and work all through the night, and all through part of the following day,” said McGonigal. “By working quickly, the ice should remain stable and not suffer any damage.” The process of draining, flushing and recharging the rest of the pipes in the facility will begin on November 12, said McGonigal. During that process, both the Legends Centre and the school will rely on backup boilers for heat. Under normal circumstances the piping system delivers heat for both buildings. “The nice thing is that we have those backups, so we’re not relying 100 per cent on the heat generated by the ice

plant,” said McGonigal. “We will shut off the ice plant and separate it from the rest of the Legends Centre and the school. And what they’ll do then is drain the glycol, flush and clean the pipes, and then put water into the piping system and do random testing to determine if there are any traces of chlorine. They’ll test and monitor the system for a period of six months to see if there is any chlorine in there. If there isn’t, then they’ll put a new glycol mixture back in.”


McGonigal said while the lab tests received last week confirm the presence of chlorine, there’s still no conclusive evidence to determine how chlorine got into the system in the first place. There are a couple of theories, however. The most likely scenario is that there may be a leak in the heat exchange system for the arena’s ice plant. “They’re going to be opening up the heat exchangers on Tuesday, November 5 to check for leaks,” said McGonigal. “When the chemical tests came back, they also indicated high levels of sodium as well as chlorine, so that points to the possibility of brine getting into the system. They use brine in the refrigeration system to take the heat away from the ice as it is being made. So the first step is to determine if there is a crack somewhere that’s causing sodium and chlorine to seep slowly into the system.” If there are no detectable leaks, the problem may have been caused by a mislabeled bottle or some other one-time event, said McGonigal. “Whatever the source, we want to find out what it was and make sure it doesn’t happen again,” he said. “It’s an expensive repair – in the neighbourhood of $120,000. Fortunately, the taxpayers won’t be on the hook for it. Neither the school nor the city is responsible for the problem, so we don’t have to pay the bill.”

Helping kids reach their potential rewarding for community coach By JAMES TARRANT

When it comes to high school sports, community coach Betty Bird has her share of memories and great learning experiences. Bird coaches the Warman High School Senior A girls volleyball team, a position she has had for six years. She has also had short stints coaching senior boys and junior girls volleyball. Next month she will be on the bench leading the WHS Senior A girls basketball team. Bird grew up in Warman and played high school volleyball as a setter on her high school and club teams before switching to the coaching ranks 15 years ago. Soccer was the sport where she cut her teeth as a coach, but the sport of volleyball has al-

Betty Bird

In most circumstances, community coaches are usually discovered by accident or word of mouth where a student, teacher or a parent knows of a friend or relative that coaches. That person, according to Bird, then decides whether to volunteer their services to the school. In many cases, communication could be a challenge for a community coach who doesn’t have the opportunity to build a relationship with players every day – especially if the coach is not a teacher, which was a common practice years ago. This is where Bird feels she has the edge. “I can get to know the kids because I know the parents and I have gone to school with some of the parents. I think that helps a lot because I know what to expect from the kids.” The reward for Bird is seeing the smiles on students’ faces when they are successful. The WHS Senior A girls will receive a bye this week before traveling to Melfort next weekend for the Saskatchewan High Athletic Association’s regional playoffs. Bird predicts tough competition from some of the bigger city volleyball clubs. She said she is expecting a middle of the pack finish, but still expects the girls to put their best foot forward. “I want the girls to believe that they are as good as any team that is competing there. Win or lose, I just want them to come together as a team and bring it.”

They have adjusted and it has come along.” During the course of the season, the senior girls play about nine weekend tournaments with the break coming on the Thanksgiving weekend. Bird puts her team through rigorous practices regularly to prepare for upcoming tournaments, but she doesn’t hear many complaints. “They want to succeed. I “I want the girls to believe have gotten them they are as good as any to buy into that. team that is competing They do have the talent, but it is all there.

The Warman Wolverines’ playoff run ended abruptly in Meadow Lake on Saturday, November 2 when they ran into a brick wall in the form of the Carpenter High School Spartans. The Spartans won the 3A 9-man high school football provincial semi-final contest by a score of 74-21. The Spartans, who haven’t lost a game all season, now square off against Indian Head in the provincial championship on Saturday, November 16. The Wolverines went into the provincial semi-final last weekend as underdogs, even though they finished in second place in last year’s provincial final. “We knew we were in tough with these guys,” said Warman head coach Tyler Scheidt after the game. “We did what we could, but we just came up short. When you go up against a team that good, you have to play your best. We didn’t play our best, unfortunately, and the result shows it. Today just wasn’t our day.”

The game started off on a promising note for the Wolverines when they recovered a fumble off the opening kickoff. But the Spartans’ defense clearly had their number, snuffing out the Wolverines’ running game and limiting their air attack. For the Warman offense, it was a re-run of the previous weekend’s quarter-final game against Fort Qu’Appelle, when they weren’t able to get any traction at all in the opening half. But while Warman was able to recover in the second half against Fort Qu’Appelle, it was a different story against Meadow Lake. The big difference was the Spartans’ quarterback, Chase Paylor, who seemed to be able to hook up with his receivers, regardless of where they were on the field or how tight the coverage was. Meadow Lake also dominated the ground game, thanks to running back Aaron Varjassy. The Spartans registered six touchdowns in the first half, and added five more in the last two quarters. Aaron Varjassy accounted for five of those majors, while Chase Paylor and

Blaik Esau each contributed a pair and Kohl Eide and Riley Pethick added one each. Pethick’s major came on an interception with less than ten seconds left to play in the opening half just as the Wolverines looked like they might mount a comeback. Warman did manage to battle back in the third quarter when Cole Balazsi and Josh Misskey each scored touchdowns. Tyler Hume added the other Warman major score in the final quarter, but it was too little, too late. A last-gasp running touchdown by rookie Jason Lindo was nullified by a holding call and went for naught. Despite the disappointing loss, Scheidt said the team had a good season, and noted they went further than many had expected them to. “We had a good season,” he said. “We have some kids that benefited from a long playoff run last year, and they learned some lessons and I think that experience helped us. We’ll lose a good group of Grade 12s, but we have a solid core that will CONTINUED ON PAGE 13

Madhouse at Mosaic ready to greet Lions Well, here we go. After a tumultuous regular season for the Saskatchewan Roughriders, the playoffs are finally here. The Riders will host the B.C. Lions in the 2013 CFL Western Semifinal Sunday at 3:30 pm in a battle of 11-7 teams. What a road it was to get here! And really, the regular season was only batting practice, a warm-up, for the main event but it was scrutinized endlessly along the way. Agonizingly scrutinized. You can’t really blame people around here for being skeptical about their team. The Riders aren’t exactly on a roll heading into the postseason having gone 3-6 in the final half of the season, and are carrying a two-game losing streak into the tournament. Maybe that’s why there were as many as 15,000 tickets left for the playoff game as of this

past Sunday. “It’s a brand new season,’’ Rider head coach Corey Chamblin said defiantly following Saturday’s 30-26 last-minute loss to Edmonton, a game in which the Riders rested top guns Darian Durant and Kory Sheets. Of course Chamblin’s right, and it would be a disservice for anyone to look back now. Should the Riders have had more wins in 2013? Possibly. In fact probably. But no one was going to touch the 14-4 Calgary Stampeders anyways, and now the Stamps sit at home with

the luxury of a first-round bye and await a visit from either the Riders or Lions in the West Division Final. No, it’s all about looking ahead right now for the Saskatchewan Roughriders but not too far ahead. A showdown in Cowtown in two weeks is a tantalizing match-up for the Green & White but they have a stubborn B.C. squad standing in the way who, judging by their record, are every bit as good as the Riders. They’re just a lot younger. The only question mark for the Roughriders as we sit on

the cusp of the playoffs is the status of slotback Chris Getzlaf who led the club in receiving in 2013 with 1,045 yards. Getzlaf missed Game 18 with a knee injury and we’re told his status is 50/50 for the playoffs. That’s huge but if necessary, the Riders still have the under-utilized Geroy Simon and Rob Bagg at their disposal. Wouldn’t it be something if Geroy torched his former team in the playoffs just like Jason Clermont did in double overtime of the 2010 Western Semifinal in Regina? Things are setting up nicely for this exact scenario we foreshadowed way back in the spring. However, Lions coach Mike Benevides has a trick or two up his sleeve as well, not the least of which is who his starting quarterback will be in the CONTINUED ON PAGE 17

Clavet Cougars punch their ticket to provincial championship final By WAYNE SHIELS

line and allowing QB Graham Beresh to score on another QB keeper. With time winding down Foam Lake moved the ball deep into Clavet’s end before the Cougars defence shut the door and forced a turnover on downs at the 9 yard line. Beresh ran the clock down as he ran the ball for three first downs and with only 30 seconds left was able to kneel down on successive plays to run out the clock. Clavet Coach Shaun Priel felt the team played well, and said

The Clavet Cougars are still in the hunt for a provincial 9-man championship title. The Cougars came from behind to defeat the Foam Lake Panthers 42-32 in 2A 9-man provincial semi-final action in Clavet on Saturday, November 2. Clavet will host Lumsden in the 2A 9-man provincial finals on Saturday, November 9. In a character-building season, this latest win was the Cougars’ best so far. After roaring back from an 18-point deficit late in the game, the Clavet squad graabbed the lead and dug in their heels to preserve the victoryo.

Wolverines’ season ends


Foam Lake got off to a 20-0 lead as their star receiver Deon Zadorozniak scored two touchdownss and set up a third when he ran an interception back to Clavet’s 11 yard line. Panthers quarterback Carson Kristjanson took advantage of the turnover when he hit Drew Helgonson for a touchdown pass. Clavet responded as quarterback Graham Beresh passed to Ian Shimla for a 22 yard major. But Zadorozniak was not done as he scored his third touchdown of the half on a diving catch after the ball deflected off a Clavet defender’s hands. Clavet was able to close out the scoring for the half when Andrew Mitchell caught a long pass and ran the ball to Foam Lake’s 1 yard line. Graham Beresh scored on a QB dive as time ran out. Beresh also scored on the two point convert as he avoided the Panthers rush and was able to scramble around the end to make the score 26-14 for Foam Lake. Despite being down on the scoreboard the Clavet squad showed a renewed confidence heading into the break.

their theme all year has been to overcome adversity by battling hard. Priel expressed the feelings that were shared by the community: “Happy for them, proud of them,” he said. Receiver Montana Erixon made some great plays in the comeback but credited the entire team for the win. ”We were able to spread the ball around all day,” he said. “Today that helped a lot”. On making the provincial finals, Erixon summed it up for the team: “Awesome, completely awesome!”

be coming back next year and I think they will benefit from playing a good team like this one because they’ll realize what it takes to go all the way.” Scheidt added that the strong minor football program in Warman benefits the high school team because players step into the rookie ranks with

a good grasp of the game’s fundamentals. “We’re in a position now where we’re re-loading instead of rebuilding every year,” he said. The graduating players include Anthony Hallborg, Simon Epp, Mankomal Gill, Jeremy Chaskavich, Jaeden White-Laroque, and Tyler Szachlewicz.


Clavet quarterback Graham Beresh was instrumental in the offensive success of the Cougar, keeping drives alive with his running ability This confidence was really tested when Clavet fumbled on the opening drive of the second half. The Panthers made them pay as Garrett Fedak scored on a great run that saw him break several tackles on his way to the end zone. The touchdown gave Foam Lake a 32-14 lead. A penalty on the ensuing kickoff meant that the Cougars were hemmed deep in their end.


Then came the play that turned the game around. Graham Beresh dropped back to pass and hit Carter Dahl in full stride and the receiver was able

to pull away from two defenders and run the length of the field for a touchdown. Beresh was able to run in for a successful convert and the comeback was on. On their next possession the Cougars moved the ball downfield on successive passes to Montana Erixon. Running back Bailey Royer finished the drive with a 4 yard TD run. Receiver Ian Shimla caught a pass in the endzone for the two- point convert. The defence really stepped up and stopped the Panthers offence with a key play being the sack of QB Kristjanson by

Justin Matsella. With a third and very long Foam Lake was forced to punt. This gave Beresh a chance to lead the Cougars downfield with passes to Montana Erixon and Ian Shimla before scoring on a two yard QB keeper to give Clavet their first lead of the day at 36-32. The Cougars increased this lead after the defence forced a Foam Lake fumble at Clavet’s 34 yard line. A pass to Bailey Royer moved the ball into Foam Lake’s side of half. A pass to Ian Shimla put the ball on the 11 yard line. A run by Royer moved the ball to the 3 yard

Message from Mayor Sheryl Spence and Council It has been a year now since Warman’s status changed to City and our Legends Center officially opened. What a busy year it has been. The Legends Center has quickly become the community hub we thought it would be.

Warman will say goodbye to another long-time employee this December. Ivan Gabrysh has served first as a Town Manager and then a City Manager for over 25 years now. He has been here in Warman for eight years and has had a huge role in ushering Warman into this new phase of ‘City’. Ivan’s accomplishments have been many and there will be some big boots to fill in finding a replacement for him. From all of us on Council we wish Ivan and his wife Bev all the best in retirement. We would also like to thank Doug Fahlgren for all his work as EMO Coordinator here in Warman.(Emergency Management and Planning).

A Town with a past, A City with a Future!

Wipes Clog the Pipes

In communities across North America, residents are being asked not to flush the increasingly popular bathroom wipes. These pre-moistened towelettes are advertised as flushable but that is not the case. These wipes create clogs and backups in the sewer system. It is estimated that it is costing some municipalities millions of dollars to send out crews to unclog the pipes and to replace equipment. Most sanitary sewers are not designed to break down these wipes, whether it states they are flushable or not. The City of Warman asks that you please refrain from flushing these items.

Elks double Royals in FCHL season opener By TERRY PUGH

The Shellbrook Elks took advantage of a second-period lapse by the host Hague Royals to register their first win of the new Fort Carlton Hockey League (FCHL) season. The Elks doubled the Royals 8-4 in Hague on Friday, November 1 in one of several games that marked the start of the senior hockey league’s season. “We had a tough second period, and that’s what did us in,” said Royals coach-manager Roger Kinzel after the game. “They were able to score a couple quick ones and we never really recovered from that.” Hague marksmen were Tyler Buck, Chris Sawatazky, Jesse Mireau, and Daniel Rauckman. Shellbrook’s goals were scored by Korey Diehl (2), Ryan Gareau, Cory Rask, Josh Peterson, Brad Creary, Floyd Cook, Lyndon Leard. Kinzel said while the opening-night loss was a disappointment, he noted it’s a long season and predicted the Royals will be a competitive team. “I don’t really care where we finish up in the standings, as long as we are in the playoffs,” Kinzel said. “That’s what we’re aiming for, is to make a good run in the playoffs. We should be a threat because we have a good bunch of guys and they all get along and they’re committed to winning.” Kinzel said the Royals will be taking a shot at the provincial championship as well as the FCHL title this year. “We feel we have the right combination of guys that can do it,” he said. “We have a lot of young guys, but we also have some veterans who know how to put the puck in the net.” Hague’s goaltending this year should be strong, with Jared Boehm back between the pipes along with newcomer Graham Hildebrand. “At this point the netminding duties will be split between those two guys,” said Kinzel. “Later on in the season we may decide which one is the number one, but right now we’re going to be alternating them.” Kinzel said the players and fans are happy to see new lighting installed in the Hague arena. The 30-year old yellow lights were replaced this summer with modern, energy-efficient units that give off a bright, white glow. The twilight-zone feel of previous seasons is a thing of the past. “It’s nice to be. able to see the puck,” commented Kinzel. The Royals next game is Friday, November 8 when they play host to the Dalmeny Fury. Game time is 8:30 p.m.


The Dalmeny Fury lost a 6-5 heartbreaker to the Bruno Thunderbirds in overtime on Friday, November 1 to open their FCHL season.

This past Monday marked two months since the Priestner Sports Corp. were approved by the Western Hockey League’s Board of Governors as the franchise’s new owners…their agreement to buy the team from Jack Brodsky and his family receiving unanimous consent. “Holy smokes, that seems like eons ago in that hotel in Calgary (the Delta-Calgary Airport!” exclaimed Blades’ president Steve Hogle, speaking on behalf of owner Mike Priestner and his son, Colin Priestner, the Managing Partner of the Saskatoon club. “It has been a blue ever since…but a good blur.” That “good blur”, while involving the creation of different enticements for potential ticket buyers to “enhance the fan experience” at home games, also involves becoming a part of the fabric of the city.



Voice of the Blades on 92.9 The Bull

“(Not having many home games so far) allows (the new team executives) a chance to go out on the street and begin to meet people in the community and the communities around town, the business community downtown and start to connect with people,” explained Hogle, who spent the previous five years with the N.H.L.’s Edmonton Oilers. “I think there’s a natural curiosity out there. People want to, sort of, reach out and touch us, feel us and see what we’re all about…what kind of vibe we create and bring to the table.” On the ice, the Blades brought a 7-10-2 record into this week’s schedule of games, tied for ninth place in the W.H.L.’s Eastern Conference, two points

out of a playoff spot as the top eight teams qualify for the postseason. Of those 19 games, only seven have been played at Credit Union Centre. Total attendance (announced as paid) is 30,280, for an average of 4,326 per game. “In the grand scheme of things, the boys are still defying the experts…doing very well,” said Hogle. “There’s seven teams within three points of each other so it’s pretty crowded in the Eastern Conference (standings). By and large, the games that we have been part of have been thrilling.” The hope from Hogle and the Priestners that there will be more wins than losses in those “thrilling” contests moving forward, leading to increased at-

tendance and off-ice success for the new ownership group as well! ***** BLADES PLAYER OF THE MONTH – For the first 17 games of the season, the line of Collin Valcourt-Nathan BurnsNikita Scherbak paced the Saskatoon offence. In the end, the Russian rookie Scherbak gets this writer’s honour for his 11 goals, 14 assists, 25 points, +9 rating, six power play goals and one game-winning goal. His production has carried into November as the 17-year-old right winger carries an 11-game points streak into this week’s action. ***** BLADES PLAYER OF THE WEEK – Almost as hot as Nikita Scherbak has been is 20-year-old left winger Collin Valcourt. Despite being moved off the line with Nathan Burns and Scherbak, the Red Deer product helped the Bridge City Bunch create a secondary scoring line with two power play goals plus five assists. He was also +2 in a week in which the Blades didn’t record a victory. The 6’2”, 216-pound power forward brings a seven-game points streak into this week’s contests…giving him season totals of 10 goals, 16 assists for 26 points and a +5 rating. ***** UPCOMING GAMES – The

Bridge City Bunch play a busy stretch of five games in seven nights, including their second string of three games-in-three nights, starting Thursday in Brandon. Then, it’s on to Moose Jaw Friday and a home game Saturday against the Warriors.

After two days off, the Blades go to Prince Albert Tuesday and return home to entertain Brandon on Wednesday. In all instances, the broadcasts on CKBL-FM (92.9 THE BULL), start at 6:30 with play-by-play at 7 p.m.

Roughriders get ready to meet Lions playoffs. All three of Travis Lulay, Buck Pierce and Thomas DeMarco played in the Lions’ regular-season ending 26-7 win over Calgary Friday night and Benevides said they now have “data” on each of them. But who’s kidding who? It will be a hunch, not data, which determines who’s behind centre for the Lions come Sunday at the Mosaic Madhouse. “I think with BC their whole offense is designed around Lulay,” said Rider linebacker Craig Butler. “We’ve seen the other two guys this year, but not Lulay. Our defense will prepare for their offense. Whoever’s in at quarterback shouldn’t matter for us. We know what Lulay can do. He’s

a Grey Cup champion and knows how to play this time of year. But for our defense, we just have to do our job.” True. But it’s not the Rider defense which is answering questions right now. It’s the of-

fense and everyone’s waiting to see if coordinator George Cortez has a few tricks of his own come kickoff time in the playoffs. Oh the intrigue! See you Sunday.

Sikaran martial arts club promotes fitness, self-defense and self-discipline By JAMES TARRANT

Area residents won’t have to travel to Saskatoon if they want to learn the Sikaran martial arts style. Wade Spychaj opened the Spychaj Martial Arts club in Warman recently, promising that all age groups can get involved in this innovative Karate influenced martial art. “People join [Martial Arts Clubs] with no motive until they are involved for four or five months. Some people like to go sparring, some go the tournament route, some people like self defense, then there are the people who want to be completely well rounded. They go there for fun, exercise and just to be a part of the group,” says Spychaj. Originally from Brantford, Ontario, Spychaj has been involved in Karate since he was nine years old. When he moved to Saskatchewan in his late teens he was introduced to the Sikaran style when he met Master Vic Ferrer. “When Sikaran was first brought to light in the Philippines, it used to be called Filipino karate. But over the years it has evolved and become much more dynamic. The word Sikaran itself means foot fighting or fighting with feet.” Spychaj added that the martial arts form combines elements of karate with jujitsu and taekwondo. “We use very dynamic kicks, and fast kicks. We use our feet like we use our hands,” said Spychaj. Spychaj still teaches at Ferrer Martial Arts, a club he has been a part of for 23 years in Saskatoon. He is also affiliated with the International Mano Mano Sikaran Association. An association founded by Ferrer. Spychaj, who is a 3rd degree black belt and certified self defence instructor, said his affiliation with IMMSA is to let new club members know that he has credibility. “It is very important for me to let people know that I come from somewhere,” said Spychaj. “It shows that I have people behind me and if anyone wants to know my qualifications, my cer-

The club will also offer adult classes, a family class and a self defense course for women, which will alternate between a ladies self defense course and a junior self defense course for ages 15 and younger. Spychaj said his daughter Raelyn will be helping with the self defence and little dragons courses. A special feature of Spychaj’s club will be guest instructors from the Ferrer Martial Club

who will frequent the Warman club as a source of inspiration and instruction. “This way club members and new members can interact with people from the home club because we are all going to be together several times during the year whether it is for testing or tournaments or club get togetherness,” said Spychaj. Spychaj said his goal is to have a community supported martial arts club where everyone is welcome. “Warman is so booming now it just seemed like the obvious place to take the martial arts club instead of having people drive into Saskatoon.

Credit union promotes Financial Literacy Month with savings account contest To coincide with Financial Literacy Month, Affinity Credit Union is proud to announce a partnership with READ Saskatoon to deliver financial literacy across the province including an online 30-Day Savings Challenge starting on November 1st. During the month, savings tips, activities, and resources will be posted daily on the Affinity website-Financial Literacy Month under the Community heading ( and through READ Saskatoon targeted at all ages and skill levels. We recognize people are constantly faced with decisions about a wide range of financial products as well as the constant pressure to be a consumer so it can be beneficial to take a step back and refresh yourself on the basics of money management.

Throughout the challenge, there will also be an opportunity for one lucky person to win a $500 term deposit to kick start their savings. Marianne Jurzyniec, Affinity’s Member Education Portfolio Manager, said: “As a local credit union, we believe we have a responsibility to help people learn the skills necessary to make responsible financial decisions which will help them meet their personal goals and develop financial well-being.” According to READ Saskatoon, financial literacy is a basic need for every Canadian. Community financial literacy programs play a critical role in decoding and adapting financial information and advice allowing it to more directly apply to the life context and needs of vulnerable Canadians.

“Ninety one percent of the clients at READ Saskatoon, participating in Financial Literacy programming, are earning a low income,” said Sheryl Harrow-Yurach, Executive Director, READ Saskatoon. “This partnership with Affinity will ensure our community has increased access to mainstream financial education opportunities. “It will also help us to position financial literacy as an essential skill, alongside reading, writing, and numeracy, allowing for systemic change within families and more broadly within our community.” Information on the 30-Day Savings Challenge can also be sent directly to individuals on request by contacting READ Saskatoon at

Langham Theatrical Company musical tickles the funny bone By TERRY PUGH

The Langham Theatrical Company hits all the right notes in its latest production, “Way out West in a Dress.” The quirky, over-the-top musical melodrama combines a funny, entertaining score with great acting by a large, talented cast. The result is a polished play that delivers exactly what the audience is looking for: an entertaining evening where you leave humming a tune with a smile on your face. Strangely enough, this is the first musical ever staged by the Langham community drama club. And Artistic Director Sela Balzer says that’s because it takes a special chemistry to pull off a production like that. Comedy is one thing; musical comedy is quite another. You have to have multi-talented people who can sing and act. It’s actually a lot harder than it looks. Fortunately, Gillian Pearson, who is also the driving force behind Langham’s other theatrical group, the Prairie Players, stepped up to the plate and took on the role of

musical director for the production. That allowed Balzer to concentrate on the acting aspects, while Pearson handled the musical end. There was also the challenge of a big production with a large cast, but “Way out West in a Dress” gives the supporting cast a lot of responsibility when it comes to backing up the leading characters. There’s not a square inch of stage space that doesn’t get used at some point, and the actors have to be careful they aren’t bumping into the props or each other. When they do, they heroically incorporate it into their dialogue and grin right along with the audience. The plot revolves around the story of a troupe of struggling actors in 1892 who inherit a hairdressing salon in a one-horse western cowboy town. The male actors are reluctant to take on the job of styling women’s hair because it’s “un-manly.” Fortunately, they have a trunk full of wigs and dresses, and since they’re actors, they dress in drag and re-invent themselves as female characters – supposedly from

Europe. Part of the fun in the play lies in the names of the characters: each name is a pun related to the character’s job or personal quirk: Carrie O’Key (singer), Elieen Dover (stands and walks with a slant), Melody Plunkett (piano player), Bobbi Pinz, Nell Clipper, Philip Glass (bartender), Barbara Seville, Colt Revolver, Jessica James, Will Reader (lawyer), Bob Burr (barber), Bill Holder (banker), M.I. Dunn (undertaker), Levy Fines (judge), Rhoda Steed (rancher), Russell Grub (cook). Martin Bembridge shines in his role as Clarence Rawlins (alias Lady Claire Rawl), particularly when he sings. His falsetto British accent in his Lady Claire Rawl character is a bit funky (think Miss Piggy with a Monty Pythonesque English accent). His colleague Roger Gaines (alias Rogaine), played by Erron Leafloor, also does a great job although he has to stretch a bit on the songs. (His faux French accent in his female alter-ego Rogaine reminds one of that amorous skunk, Pepe le Pew – except an octave

Focus on Low German among literacy programs to benefit from funding The Government of Saskatchewan has allocated more than $390,000 through the Saskatchewan Community Literacy Fund (SCLF) to fourteen community-based organizations to provide family, adult or workplace literacy programs to address identified community literacy needs that have not been met through other programs. Included in the list of recipients is Great Plains College in Kincaid who received $30,000 in support of an adult literacy project that focuses on Canadian Mennonites who speak Low German. “This fund helps support the higher achievement of people of all ages, and provides equitable opportunities for learners across the province,” Education Minister Don Morgan said. “Strong literacy skills are foundational to an individual’s lifelong learning and future success, which is why the Government of Saskatchewan is committed to supporting community-based organizations to help address literacy needs in their communities.”

Delisle playground takes shape thanks to efforts of volunteers Children in Delisle have a new park to play in thanks to the efforts of volunteers in that community. In May, Delisle Town Council granted permission to a group of eager citizens allowing them to convert two vacant residential lots into a park. “We have a new residential subdivision being developed in the north end of our community and it made sense to develop some green space in the area,” says Mayor Dave Anderchek. “We now have a number of residential lots backing this new park, which of course is a selling feature, especially for young families.” The work could not have been possible without the efforts of volunteers and generous cash and “in-kind” donations. The volunteer group was successful in their grant applications to The Dakota Dunes Community Development Corporation and the Community Initiatives Fund. Grant money from both of these groups was used to purchase the playground equipment. “Without the generous contributions from these organizations, the playground which children in our community now play on would not be possible,” says project volunteer Curt Gessell. “We were absolutely blown away when we received word that our project would be funded.”

Local monetary donations were used to purchase the materials for the site, such as turf grass and irrigation equipment. In true small town spirit, the labor and equipment needed to convert the vacant piece of residential property into a park was almost all donated. “There were about 350 volunteer hours spent to complete the project,” says Gessell. The first step was to prepare the site by leveling the ground and bringing in top soil. Once this was completed, the site was ready for the installation of underground sprinklers. On the evening of July 25th about 25 volunteers converged at the site and rolled out the turf. There were about 1,000 rolls of turf to lay down, but the task didn’t take too long. “It was quite the sight - seeing all of those people come together to pitch in,” notes Amy Wawryk, project volunteer and Delisle resident. Once the grass was established the last step was to assemble and install the actual playground equipment. The installation was done by a group of Agrium employees and local residents. “It has been a great experience, to see so many members of our community get on board with a project like this,” says Gessell. “People truly like to be a part of a good thing.”

Volunteers take a break after the playground is finally completed

Weekly RCMP report parties.

is ongoing.



On November 3 at 12:00 midnight, police received a complaint that a 17 year old female was assaulted while walking home from a house party in Martensville on Saturday night. She was approached by a male in a vehicle and subsequently assaulted. She did not require medical attention. The investigation into this matter

The Martensville RCMP are asking for the public’s assistance. On the night of October 18th, 2013 a suspect driving a late nineties model Cadillac Deville drove over a residential lawn, struck a vehicle then a house situated on Stone Terrace in Martensville before fleeing the scene. The suspect vehicle sustained dam-

aged to the front headlight/ grill area.


On November 2 at 3:25 am. Police responded to a complaint of an individual walking on Highway 11 near Osler. The individual’s vehicle had broken down and was attempting to get back to Saskatoon. The 55-year-old male was given a ride home to his residence to ensure his safety.

New strain of flu accounted for the time the campaign ends. “We got to as many locations as we can throughout the months of October and November,” said Grauer. “Those are the months when it’s best to get immunized, because it takes about two weeks for the vaccine to beome effective in protecting a person. That way we have everyone protected when the influenza starts to hit. This year we’re exepcting it to arrive about a week later than last year.” The Martensville clinic is scheduled for Wednesday, November 6 at the North Ridge Community Centre from 3 to 7 pm. The Warman clinic is one of the last in the series, slated for Friday, November 29 from 3 to 7 p.m. at the Brian King Centre. The clinics run from October 21 to December 14. Grauer said the SHR intended to get a clinic in Warman sooner than the end of November, but ran into “scheduling glitches” for the Brian King Centre. “We weren’t able to book the Brian King Centre any earlier,” she said, adding that res-

idents of Warman who are anxious to get immunized prior to that date can be accommodated at other rural clinics or in Saskatoon. The Warman clinic also provides a chance for anyone who got missed to get a flu shot. She noted that physicians are also able to administer flu shots at their own clinics. Grauer said the SHR has a dedicated flu immunization program for assisted-living, long-term care homes in the region. “Seniors in assisted-living care homes receive flu shots without having to go to the public clinics,” she said.


Grauer said the flu vaccine varies from year to year, and is designed to target the most virulent strains of influenza viruses. “The World Health Organization (WHO) monitors the influenza situation in Australia and Asia over the course of the year, and so they know what to expect by fall, which is when flu season starts to hit Canada,” said Grauer. “They create the vaccine to cover

three different strains of influenza. This year two are Influenza A strains, which were in the vaccine last year, and there is a new strain called H3N2.” Grauer said it’s important to have a flu shot annually because not only do influenza strains change from year to year, but the immunization protection wears off after about twelve months. She said on average, one in five Canadians will contract an influenza virus, but many will not be reported. “A lot of healthy indivdiuals simply endure the flu symptoms and don’t need medical treatment,” she said. “They can be sick up to ten days and feel miserable, but they don’t actually get tested.” Last year, the SHR had 290 cases of influenza. Four of those cases resulted in hospitalization. The most vulnerable individuals are the elderly and the very young, said Grauer. The complete listing of flu clinics is available online at the Saskatoon Health Region website: or by calling 306-655-4358.

Minister responsible for Immigration Bill Boyd announced that the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) will be undergoing improvements following consultations with a wide range of stakeholders this summer. “Over the last several months, we have been reviewing the feedback we received during the consultation process and, based on this feedback, we will be introducing improvements to the SINP on January 2, 2014,” Boyd said. These program improvements will be applied to an expanded program in 2014 as the federal government announced last week that Saskatchewan’s nominee allocation will increase to 4,725 next year, up from 4,450 in 2013. To increase the program re-

sponsiveness and ensure that the program continues to have successful outcomes, the SINP will consolidate nine categories into three main categories with new eligibility requirements: the International Skilled Worker Category, the Saskatchewan Experience Category, and the Entrepreneur and Farm Category. These changes also align with Canada’s focus on immigration that supports economic growth. The federal government has indicated its desire for all provincial nominee programs to focus on economic requirements. The Family Referral Category will be combined with the Skilled Worker Category to create the new International Skilled Workers Category. The International Skilled Worker

Category will have a focus on attracting workers with highskilled employment offers. At the same time it will provide increased flexibility by accepting a number of applications from workers with skills in high demand without the requirement of pre-arranged employment. Applicants with family connections in Saskatchewan can apply under this category, which assigns more eligibility points for family connections. As of January 2, 2014, the SINP will only accept applications electronically, which will result in program efficiencies. “Saskatchewan’s labour market has high demand for workers and, we still rely on immigration to fill a number of high-skilled positions,” Boyd said.
