Grandora man charged in Saskatoon break-in

Nominations open for school board byelection

A 47 year old Grandora man was slated to appear in court on Wednesday, January 9, charged with breaking into a business compound in Saskatoon. At approximately 9:30 p.m., Tuesday, January 8, 2013, an officer on patrol in the area of Jessop Avenue and 103rd Street East noticed a suspicious vehicle parked on a roadway and fresh footprints in the snow leading up to a locked business compound. Upon further investigation the officer observed two

When the suspects attempted to flee from the officer, one male became caught in barbed wire at the top of the compound fence. He managed to free himself but was taken into custody. The other male was able to flee the scene. The 47 year old man is now facing a charge of Break and Enter and one count of Breach of Undertaking. Saskatoon Police continue to investigate.

Fire ripped through a Dalmeny home late Tuesday afternoon, January 8, as commuters returned home from work. The fire began about 5:00 p.m. in the residence located along Highway 305. Residents of the home, who were inside the building at the time of the blaze, were alerted by a neighbour who witnessed billowing black smoke. It did not take long for the flames to completely engulf the home. Firefighters from the Dalmeny Fire Department, assisted by firefighters from Martensville, worked hard through difficult, cold conditions to bring the blaze under control. The fire was extinguished at about 8:30 p.m. Three of the four fire trucks left the scene at that time, while one unit remained at the home to monitor the situation and extinguish any hot spots.

STRUCTURAL SAFETY CITED

Curling rink closed while officials investigate problems By TERRY PUGH

T

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

he Langham Curling Rink has been closed due to structual problems with its roof. The decision to close the building was made last week for safety reasons, according to Bev Dovell, Administrator for the Town of Langham. She said a crack in at least one of the main wooden rafters over the ice area has rendered the building structurally unstable.

WEBSITE EXCLUSIVE

The problem was detected by Clayton Wurtz, general manager of the club, shortly after the start of the new year. While doing maintenance work on the ice, Wurtz heard a loud crack and, after investigating, discovered what appeared to be a sagging section of the roof. The building was closed as a precautionary measure and structural engineers were brought in to determine the extent of

the damage. The investigation by Associated Engineering was still underway at the Gazette press deadline. However, a report is expected sometime this week and a decision on the future of the building will be made jointly by town council and the curling club. The curling rink was built in the early 1970s and is owned by the Town of Langham and operated by the curling club. It’s a serious blow to the community, noted Dovell. “The curling rink is a hub of activity every winter. It’s a gathering place for people in this area and since the temporary closure of the Dalmeny curling facility, they’ve been coming here as well, so it affects a lot of people.” Dovell said while the entire building is currently off-limits and no one is allowed inside, town council and the administration are hopeful that the lobby area and the basement portion are still structurally sound. If the entire building is deemed by the engineers to be unsafe, it may have to be completely demolished. She said the heavy snow load this winter may have been a contributing

factor to the failure of the rafter, but concrete answers won’t be known until the engineer’s report is completed. The Town of Langham has notified its insurance company of the problem. “Hopefully sometime this week we will get the engineer’s report and then go to the insurance company to make some decisons,” Dovell continued. “It could be that only the portion of the building that covers the ice area may have to be demolished and rebuilt, but that’s just one possible option. Whatever decision is made, it won’t be a fast process because there are many factors to consider.” In the meantime, though, Dovell said there won’t be any more curling in the Langham rink this winter. “Unfortunately, that’s one of the few things that is certain. The ice portion is unsafe and we can’t have anyone in there.” The town and curling club “dodged a bullet” thanks to early detection of the structural problem. “It could have been much worse,” she said. “If the roof had collapsed when people were inside, it would have been terrible.”

The Langham Curling Club’s season has been cut short pending the results of an engineer’s report into the safety of the building TERRY PUGH | CLARK’S CROSSING GAZETTE

The Langham Curling Club had scheduled a men’s bonspiel for this coming weekend, January 18 and 19, with three other bonspiels also planned for February and March.

FIREFIGHTERS BONSPIEL MOVED TO RADISSON

The club was also slated to host the Saskatchewan Provincial Firefighters Association Curling Championships the weekend of February 9 and 10. That event will now take place in

Radisson, according to Dave Buckingham, mayor of Borden and a member of the Borden Fire Department. In an e-mail to the Gazette on January 12, Buckingham said the “unfortunate closure of the Langham facility created some last-minute changes.” “We are very pleased that the Town of Radisson will now accommodate us for the curling portion of the event,” said Buckingham. “We will still be having a banquet in Borden on Saturday evening, February 9.”

Fortune Minerals finalizes land purchase By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

Contractors have been working steadily on the new Warman Middle Years School, despite colder than normal winter weather

Board releases grade range for new school The new Warman Community Middle School (WCMS) will open for students from Grades 4 through 7 at the start of the 2013/14 school year. The decision regarding the grade configuration for the school’s opening year was made by the Prairie Spirit Board of Education at its regular meeting on Monday, December 17, 2012. The decision was based on a variety of factors, including the overall projected enrollments for Warman in 2013/14, the necessary coordination with the building project and in support of a smooth transition for all those involved in the new school. The plan is to expand the school to include Grades 4 - 8 the following year. “Overall, the project is progressing well,” said Sam Dyck, Board Vice-Chair and Trustee from the City of Warman. “Although the project is on schedule, it is probably too early to determine if the project will be entirely finished before the school opens in fall, 2013.” The general contractor for the project has informed the school division that they are where they hoped to be at this point in the year. In terms of preparation for the upcoming school year, the classrooms, administrative offices and the library are priority spaces for completion. The Board also passed a motion approving the hiring of two Vice-Principals for WCMS for 2013/14. The Vice-Principals will officially begin their duties in September, 2013. WCMS Principal Greg Tebay has initiated a process to gather community input for the new school’s colours and logo. More information on this process can be found on the WCMS blog site (blogs.spiritsd.ca/wms). Ideas and suggestions from students and the community will be considered by a local committee in collaboration with a graphic designer. The logo and other details will be presented later this spring.

Fortune Minerals has completed the purchase of 482 acres of land east of Langham. The site, located in the RM of Corman Park approximately three kilometers east of Langham, is north of Highway 305 and west of Schultz Road alongside the CN Rail mainline. Fortune Minerals intends to build a refinery for processing gold, cobalt, bismuth and copper. The $230 million refinery, known as the Saskatchewan Metals Processing Plant (SMPP) was originally announced by the company in 2010. The project is currently undergoing an extensive en-

Project to help students succeed in real world after high school By BRENDA ERICKSON

Communications Consultant Prairie Spirit School Division

At its regular meeting on Monday, January 7, the Prairie Spirit Board of Education heard an exciting presentation regarding a new Division initiative to provide students with opportunities for authentic learning. Dubbed the “Da Vinci Project,” this initiative proposes to create real-world learning experiences for students.

DA VINCI PROJECT The Da Vinci Project’s vision is “connecting hands, hearts and minds,” with a mission to assist students with the transition to life after high school. The project was named after Leonardo da Vinci, a self-taught individual and the master of a variety of trades. The project is led by Learning Superintendent Kim Beaulieu, Coordinator Jon Yellowlees and Michael Neufeld, WW Brown Principal and Prairie Spirit Practical and Applied Arts Project Facilitator. In the spring of 2012, the committee began exploring opportunities for students to be engaged in real world, authentic learning experiences, with the vision that students would be able to connect their theoretical-based learning with

Elementary schools may be in works for Warman and Martensville By BRENDA ERICKSON

Communications Consultant Prairie Spirit School Division

Applications for new elementary schools in Warman and Martensville are making progress. The Prairie Spirit School Division (PSSD) Board of Education received confirmation from the Ministry of Education that proposed new elementary schools in the communities of Warman and Martensville are being funded for conceptual analysis studies. The Board reviewed the Ministry details at its meeting on December 17, 2012. The Board has made formal application for new elementary schools in both cities in response to the unprecedented growth in these communities. The Ministry has prioritized both schools in its annual capital priority list. These concept studies are the next step in the Ministry’s final approval process for major capital projects. The Ministry’s $20,000 in funding for each proposed school is intended to cover the costs of a feasibility study and final report for each project. The final report will include the intended scope of the project, enrolment projections, potential partners or joint use opportunities, any special programming features and an estimated cost. Although this is an important step in the process of finalizing a new school, this authorization does not mean the school division can start detailed design, tender or construction. “We are excited about this next step in the process of securing new school facilities for our growing communities,” Pavloff said. “We will be advocating to the Ministry for these communities at every opportunity.”

fall at Leask Community School, with students building greenhouses to use in Horticulture class and sell to the community. Beaulieu said the school division will need to connect with corporations to investigate how they could be involved in supporting this initiative as it will ultimately benefit employers in the province. For example, an indoor construction facility could be built with corporate support.

BUILDING MOMENTUM Beaulieu said the Da Vinci project will start small and then build momentum throughout the Division, with the expectation that it will expand beyond the trades. He added that the longer term goal of this initiative is that students would be able to follow their interests and passions by being involved in real world projects connected to the curriculum. Students will contribute and create new knowledge as they work as mathematicians, historians, musicians, writers, painters and scientists, he said. “We are very excited about this project,” said Larry Pavloff, Board Chair. “This is the direction that the Board has been working towards for the past few years. There will be a lot of hard work ahead and the Board fully supports this work. We know the students will benefit as they prepare for the future.” OSLER ROOF REPAIRS Jim Shields, Superinten-

dent of Finance and Administration, provided an update to the Board about the repairs being made to the roof of Osler School. The Board approved a

motion on January 7 to submit a B1 form to the Ministry to formally apply for funding of over $770,000 to complete the repair project.

CTF proposes to end Aboriginal poverty By COLIN CRAIG

Canadian Taxpayers Association

It’s time for the federal government to put a stop to racebased laws and programs, and prevent yet another decade of new handout programs. It is clear that systemic changes are needed. Recently, the Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) called on Prime Minister Harper to consider bold changes as his government moves forward with future aboriginal policies. The CTF encouraged the prime minister to discuss these ideas with grassroots taxpayers and grassroots people living on reserves to end the cycle of poverty. For the sake of kids living in poverty on too many reserves, we don’t need another decade with more social programs and tinkering. We need a new approach; one that treats all Canadians the same and connects aboriginal people with jobs and opportunities. That’s what we’re proposing with our policy ideas.” The CTF proposed five policy recommendations to improve conditions for aboriginal people: 1) Treat All Canadians the Same – While abiding by treaty contracts and the constitution, phase out non-treaty laws and programs that single out aboriginal people. A few examples: The Indian Act b. Section 718(2) of the Criminal Code; gives judges flexibility to give aboriginal people reduced sentences. c. Aboriginal Arts Office (an arts grant program specifically for aboriginal people; all other ethnicities apply through a different program.) 2) Give Reserves Full Land/Housing Control – Give aboriginal reserves full control over their land by the end of 2013; no more requiring reserves to seek Ottawa’s permission prior to development, leasing or sale of reserve land (while respecting current environmental laws). Also, transfer ownership of homes on reserves to families living there. 3) Transition Support – Investigate how to help people in remote, economically bleak communities transition to where there are better jobs and educational opportunities. 4) Full Accountability – Reserves must be accountable for public funds they receive. Period. No more situations like Attawapiskat; audit found 81% of files lacking supporting documentation. 5) Fund People on Reserves Directly – Start pilot projects whereby funding to reserves goes directly to band members, with the band council taxing band members to pay for services. This would ensure more funds reach people in need, rather than getting caught in administration. Whatever the Harper government decides to move ahead with, it should first discuss the changes with grassroots taxpayers and grassroots people living on reserves. Changes to create self-sufficiency and end poverty can no longer be ignored.

AUDITED CIRCULATION: 15,202

This might be a good time for Premier Brad Wall to think about the history of this province and the importance of Saskatchewan’s rural roots - especially, its agriculture roots. Most might not see the phasing out of the Saskatchewan wheat sheaf logo (or more accurately put, the stook) of government letterhead in that way. The wheat sheaf symbol that also adorns the province’s coat of arms may seem outdated to some. Some who view this debate from a partisan perspective are even suggesting the wheat sheaf logo is a remnant of the NDP years that should be left behind. But what shouldn’t be lost is how that wheat sheaf came to represent why people came here and who we still are - a rural, agricultural province. Wall and company need to take stock of the stook and what it truly means. Of course, the move to the more frequent use of the new logo - a stylized Saskatchewan that just happens to be the Sask. Party’s green and gold colours - doesn’t detract from what this government has done for rural Saskatchewan. The Sask. Party government record speaks for itself. Its record is a rather solid one - especially compared with that of its NDP predecessors. During the Allan Blakeney administration of the 1970s when Saskatchewan agriculture was starting a major transition, the NDP resisted change by doing everything from taxing tandem axle trucks to opposing farmer-owned inland terminals. The Blakeney NDP - and even the Roy Romanow-Lorne Calvert governments, to a large extent held on to the vision of rural Saskatchewan of the Tommy Douglas era of the 1940s, ‘50s and ‘60s. Rural Saskatchewan was about the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, Coop stores and trusting the Canadian Wheat Board to sell the grain that you threshed from sheaves that had been stooked. Certainly, agriculture wasn’t about maximizing profits through better yields, better fertilization, zero-tillage and marketing. It is a problem that haunts the NDP to this very day, as it grasps to find its rural roots that died out sometime during the 1990s when hospital were being closed and highways were left in disrepair. Admittedly, Wall’s government has had the good fortune of strong economy that’s allowed it to reinstate rural infrastructure. Also, it didn’t have to solve the deficit/ debt crisis left behind by the Progressive Conservatives of the 1980s - the reason behind the NDP’s fiscal choices that that hammered rural infrastructure. But what might be just as critical to the Sask. Party is to remember that today’s prosperity in Saskatchewan is directly tied to the resources located in rural Saskatchewan. Notwithstanding the fact that much of the province’s recent

wealth has come from rural Saskatchewan oil, gas, potash and, yes, agriculture, the province is becoming more urbanized province. The two major cities are where we are growing the fastest. And recently, Wall has hinted that it might be time to at least discuss the role of the Crown corporations - what’s practical and makes good economic sense. There’s nothing wrong with talking, but one wonders whether such a discussion today will take more of on a urban viewpoint and not fully reflect the appreciation rural customers have

for the services provided by STC, SaskTel or SaskPower that might not be quite the same from profitdriven, private suppliers. One fears Saskatchewan may be getting too caught up in this urbanized viewpoint, somehow reflected in the new, stylized, urbanlooking logo the government now seems intent on using. So maybe we do need reminders of where we came from. Symbols are important and the iconic wheat sheaf has become a symbol of how rural Saskatchewan has adjusted, endured, persevered and thrived. The NDP clearly made the mistake of not accepting that rural Saskatchewan was changing. But let us hope the Sask. Party does not make a different mistake of forgetting the things in this province most worth preserving.

An outbreak of Influenza A virus has resulted in temporary closure of the Warman Mennonite Special Care home to visitors

Influenza ‘A’ outbreak creates restrictions at special care home By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

An outbreak of ‘Influenza A’ cases at the Warman Mennonite Special Care Home (WMSCH) has temporarily closed the facility to visitors.

The presence of the Influenza A virus was confirmed by the Saskatoon Health Region (SHR) on Monday evening, January 7, according to Jim Wiebe, administrator of the WMSCH. “It’s hard on the residents and it’s hard on families, because it’s basically meant that nobody is able to come in and nobody can leave,” said Wiebe in an interview on Friday, January 11. “It’s unfortunate, but these are steps that have to be taken to prevent the spread of the virus into the community.” Wiebe said the first case of the virus was confirmed Monday evening. Two more residents were diagnosed with the virus on Tuesday, January 8. There was one case confirmed

on Thursday, January 10 and another on Friday morning, January 11. Two more cases were confirmed on Tuesday, January 14. “The virus is not contained at this point,” said Wiebe. “It hasn’t raced through the facility, but it does seem to be moving steadily, despite our best efforts. We’ve isolated the affected people immediately, and are constantly cleaning and wiping everything down with antiseptics. Our objective is to stop its spread as quickly and as completely as we can.” There are two types of influenza virus: A and B. Influenza A is the more virulent strain of the two, and causes flu-like symptoms including fever, severe coughing, lethargy, lack of appetite, and headaches. “The symptoms are similar to a cold, but much more severe,” said Wiebe. “It’s a respiratory infection, and the danger is that it can worsen and develop into pneumonia. For seniors, especially those with underlying health problems, it can be very serious.” Wiebe said the isolation procedures are especially hard on older residents. “It’s very difficult when they’re confined to their room

for so many days,” he said. “They can’t see their loved ones. They can’t have visitors. It’s not a good situation.” According to SHR health procedures, facilities must remain closed to visitors until five days after treatment of patients affected by Influenza A virus. “That means we won’t be open again for visitors until we receive the okay from the health region,” Wiebe stated. That is not likely to happen

until next week at the earliest. Wiebe said the residents of the care home did receive flu vaccinations last fall, and that likely softened the impact of the outbreak. “I’m sure it would be much worse if people hadn’t gotten flu shots,” he said. “Most of the staff also voluntarily got flu shots in September or October.” Those staff members that didn’t get vacciinated last fall have had to get tamiflu shots

as an emergency measure in order to continue working at the facility during the current outbreak, added Wiebe. “We encourage staff members to get the flu shots early,” he said. “We stress that even though you yourself don’t get sick, you could be a carrier and not even realize it. When you’re working around vulnerable people, you need to be aware of that.” Relatives and friends of residents in the WMSCH are

urged to call the facility at 933-2011 beforehand to find out if the visiting restrictions are still in place. Similar outbreaks of Influenza A have occurred in other communities in Saskatchewan and across Canada. Unrelated outbreaks of Norwalk virus, a different strain of virus that produces symptoms of vomiting and diharrehea, have resulted in closures of several health faciities in Saskatoon.

Construction booming in Martensville and Warman Single-family home construction fuels strong economic growth in both centres By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

It was another banner year for construction in the Cities of Warman and Martensville in 2012. The total value of construction in Warman from January 1 to December 31, 2012 was $80,249,315.00, according to statistics compiled by Municode, the company

934-0688

that handles building permits and inspections for the City of Warman. There were a total of 603 building permits issued in Warman for the 12 months of 2012. including construction starts on single-family homes, multi-family homes, commercial and industrial buildings in all parts of the city. Brad Toth, Planning and Development Manager for the City of Warman, said while the value of construction for the year was down slightly from the $83 million recorded in 2011, the number of building permits was up by almost

200 units over the previous year, when there were 417 permits issued. “This is because we had some major pojects such as the Warman Middle Years School, which were issued in 2011, and that pushed the permit value up,” Toth explained at a recent City of Warman council meeting. The new Warman Community Middle School continues to take shape over the winter, as crews work long hours in an effort to meet the deadline to have the school ready to open in September, 2013. Construction of single-

family homes was especially strong in the Legends and Rockwood neighbourhoods in the north end of Warman, as well as the Southlands residential development in the southwestern part of the city.

MARTENSVILLE STRONG It was much the same story in Martensville, where a total of 387 building permits were issued over the course of the year, according to figures posted online by the City

Great Plains College offers innovative training program for older workers By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

A training program aimed at helping older people get back into the workforce is being offered by Great Plains College in Warman. The “Targeted Initiative Program for Older Workers” is a unique course that provides specialized instruction to qualified students. While the enrolment numbers are limited, the success rate for the program is extremely high. “It’s a geat way for people who may have been out of the workforce for some time to get back into it,” explained Tanya Minchin, coordinator of the program for Great Plains College in Warman. “The focus is on helping people upgrade their skills for whatever new

career they hope to enter.” The course runs for 10 weeks beginning March 11. But prospective students need to apply quickly. Registration is limited to just 14 students, and the deadline for submitting applications is Tuesday, February 19. The program is open to workers between the ages of 55 and 64, although there is some flexibility for applicants younger than 55 and older than 65 who meet specific criteria, noted Minchin. She said the college has run the program twice in the past four years and achieved excellent results. “The last time it was offered was two years ago,” she said. “The program has a strong record of helping students achieve both personal

and career goals.” One of the reasons for the high success rate of the program is that the college itself has a vested interest in helping students find work. “The training program is funded jointly by the provincial and federal governments,” explained Minchin. “The funding is released in stages as the course progresses and the final payments don’t come through until we have successful student placements.” The program provides financial assistance to qualified students. “It’s subsidized, which ensures that financial hardship isn’t a barrier to students” stated Minchin. The course begins with a 2-week long series of classes aimed at sharpening basic workforce skills for all stu-

dents. “There’s a real range of experi- “It’s a great way for people ence for students in who may have been out of this age group,” she said. “Some have the workforce for some time been out of work for to get back into it.

Lions, Delisle Rebels, Osler Monarchs, Clavet Cougars, Bishop Lloyd Lancers, E.S. Laird Sabres and Wynyard Bears. Boys teams included the Langham Vikings, Warman Wolverines, VCA Lions, Dalmeny Cougars, PA Carlton Crusaders, E.S. Laird Sabres, Melford Comets and Bishop Lloyd Lancers. The hoopla got underway early Friday afternoon, and was full throttle until the final games Saturday night. WHS BOYS TRY HARD T h e Warman boys opened the weekend against a strong Mel for t team Friday afternoon. The Wolverines were unable to keep up with the Melfort Comets, despite a strong performance. Brandon McKimmon of Warman used his size and was key for the Wolverines on rebounds. Adam Dyck played with true emotion, and although he didn’t get the outcome he was hoping for, his time would come. Warman dropped their first game to the Melfort Comets 51-40. Saturday morning the boys were back on the court to face the Bishop Lloyd Lancers, from Lloydminster. This matchup had fans on the edge of their seats the entire game, as both teams exchanged baskets as often as they traded the lead. It was 45-42 for the Lancers with just seconds on the clock. It looked grim for Warman. Adam Dyck took the ball up the court as he usually does, and then stopped at the 3-point line, the crowd held their breath. With total silence and no time left on the clock, it was nothing but net! Dyck knocked down the 3 to tie the game, and the roof nearly came off the gymnasium. The boys ended up los-

ing 54-52 in overtime, but held their heads high. “They played their best game of the year,” said proud Assistant Coach Darryl Guyda. “Quite honestly we couldn’t have done anything differently.”

WHS GIRLS WIN SILVER The Warman girls were fast out of the gate on Friday night, easily taking care of the Bishop Lloyd Lancers. Saturday morning the girls faced a tougher challenge against the Wynyard Bears. But their aggressive defense and skilled offense was too much for Wynyard to handle, as the Wolverines won 45-33. With two big wins the girls were feeling confident heading into the A final against the Delisle Rebels. Warman has faced Delisle

Danica Fast of the Warman Wolverines goes airborne as she launches a shot at the basket while evading Soleil Gow of the Bishop Lloyd Lancers. Warman won this game 64-18, going on to beat the Wynyard Bears 45-33 and advancing to the A side final against Delisle.. once this year, winning by only 3 points. Head Coach Cory Fast knew this game wouldn’t be so easy. Delisle jumped on the board early, and refused to let Warman have a chance with the lead. It was obvious both teams were focused on tough defense, with the score just a modest 22-16 at the half for Delisle. The Rebels held a 6-point lead through most of the second half, and the Wolverines were starting to look fatigued. Grade 8 student, Chelsea Misskey

kept Warman going strong through the second half, putting up countless layups, and stealing the ball nearly every time the Rebels blinked. “Her determination and desire to win is second to none,” stated coach Cory Fast. The Delisle Rebels closed out the weekend as champions, defeating the Wolverines 39-32, with Sydney Tabin taking home the MVP award. Warman will get their chance for revenge this Thursday in a league game against Delisle.

Vipers power past Battleford in Bantam AA action By TYLER WAWRYK

twawryk16@gmail.com

On a day when most are usually relaxing at home, the Sask Valley Vipers injected their venom into the visiting Battleford Barons, with a commanding 7-4 win Sunday afternoon in Warman. Coming off a huge 11-0 win Saturday in Humboldt, the Vipers seemed a bit sluggish out of the gates. Battleford opened the contest with a power play marker midway through the first. Then a boarding minor put the Vipers on the man advantage. Colby Haugen demonstrated his hand eye skills tipping an Isaac Jackson point shot out of mid-air, fooling the Barons goalie to notch things up at 1. The speed picked up late in the first, as both teams were playing their second game in as many days. A few big collisions got the benches riled up, but the aggression led to a hit from behind. Barons forward Cody Clarke was ejected for the hit, and the Vipers were licking their chops at the chance of an extended 5 on 3. The Vipers were unable to capitalize on the power play, and went into the dressing room aware of what needed to change. Just over a minute into the second stanza the Barons were first to strike yet again. Owen Lamb caught a pass on a 2 on 1, and made no mistake putting it past Joel Gryzbowski. The Vipers upped the tempo on the fore check and controlled the puck for much of the period, utilizing the cycle to create chances offensively. Carson Albrecht caught a pass from Dayton Brown in the corner, and marched through traffic putting home a dandy backhand goal. Then Viper defensemen Levi Kleiboer spotted a streaking Brady MacPherson and sent him in on a partial breakaway. MacPherson fooled Baron netminder Matthew Flath, getting him to bite on his backhand only to go forehand and give the Vipers their first lead of the game. A minute and a half later MacPherson made it look easy as he sniped another one from the half wall. The Barons answered back, but it was more luck then anything. A fanned shot fooled the Vipers tender as he was expecting a fastball,

but instead the puck trickled by. Sask Valley was still ahead by one, but captain Liam Maley decided another couldn’t hurt. Maley single handedly out worked two Baron defensemen, walked out front and put in his own rebound from his knees to give his club the goal cushion heading into the second intermission. The Sask Valley Vipers obviously weren’t going to try and ride out the two-goal lead, and this time they started the period with a goal. Clayton McKenzie was sent in all alone

on a breakaway and flawlessly bulged the twine with a perfect backhand deke. Then Carson Albrecht, who always seems to be in the right place at the right time, tucked in his second of the contest. Visibly one of the smaller guys on the ice, Albrecht still creates havoc for his opponents. “I just focus on keeping my composure, and keep my head up,” claimed a humble Albrecht. The Barons added one more goal, which wasn’t pretty by any means. Sask Valley did a tremendous job of keep-

ing their composure in the last few minutes, where as the Barons were set on inviting them into a scrum. The Vipers head coach Shaun Priel was very pleased with his team’s performance this weekend, picking up two big wins and jumping ahead of Prince Albert into 3rd place in the North Division standings. Saturday the Vipers will head to Melfort to take on a strong North East team, and look to carry their momentum forward into the playoffs.

It had all the ingredients for a magical night…a foursome of Toronto Blue Jays in the house on their Winter Tour, bringing a large crowd on a bitterly cold night to Credit Union Centre to see what the Memorial Cup host team looked like after a quartet of deals before the trade deadline. Too bad the Saskatoon Blades couldn’t hold up their end of the bargain, losing 3-1 last Friday to the Red Deer Rebels in front of the largest C.U.C. throng of the 2012-13 season of 7,350. The Blades lost on the night of the previous “biggest” crowd by a 4-2 score to the visiting Prince Albert Raiders in front of 6,931 fans on December 28. The Bridge City Bunch’s play improved a bit this past Saturday… but not enough to avoid another setback…this time a 2-1 decision to the defending W.H.L.-champion Edmonton Oil Kings. The losses came a little more than 48 hours after General Manager and Head Coach Lorne Molleken pulled the trigger on four trades, designed to bulk up the franchise’s chances of winning the Western Hockey League and Memorial Cup championship. Brought in were left wingers Michael Ferland from Brandon, Collin Valcourt from Spokane and Erik Benoit from Kootenay. Four picks in the Bantam Draft were sacrificed while Adam Kambeitz was dealt to Seattle to make room for Ferland amongst Saskatoon’s three 20-year-olds. “We just need to get that chemistry,” said Molleken after the back-to-back setbacks left the Bridge City Bunch with a 21-20-1 record and seventh place in the Eastern Conference. “Any time you bring new players into a situation, there is going to be a bit of a period where everybody is going to have to get a chance to get to know each other it’s no different in this case.” Just 30 games remain in the regular-season to figure it out and qualify for the playoffs! ***** ROSTER UPDATE – Following is the updated Saskatoon Blades’ roster…as of Monday: Goalies – Andrey Makarov (93), Alex Moodie (95); Defence – Matt Pufahl (93), Kyle Schmidt (93), Duncan Siemens (93), Graeme Craig (93), Shayne Gwinner (94), Darren Dietz (93), Dalton Thrower (93), Nelson Nogier (96); Forwards – Shane McColgan (93), Erik Benoit (93), Matej Stransky (93), Matt Revel (96), Nick Zajac (95), Logan Harland (95), Brenden Walker (92), Josh Nicholls (92), Nathan Burns (93), Lukas Sutter (93), Collin Valcourt (93), Michael Ferland (92), Brett Stovin (94), Ryan Graham (96), Jessey Astles (93); ***** UPCOMING GAMES – The Blades’ have four games in six nights beginning Friday…three of them at Credit Union Centre. On Friday, Saskatoon hosts Moose Jaw, then welcomes the Wheat Kings Saturday before travelling to Brandon Tuesday. They make a hasty return home to entertain Edmonton, again, on Wednesday. All the radio broadcasts on CKBL-FM (92-9, THE BULL) start at 6:30 with pre-game talk. ***** BLADES PLAYER-OF-THE-WEEK – While opposition goaltenders stole the show last weekend, the Bridge City Bunch’s puckstopper deserved better results. Andrey Makarov stopped 60 of 65 shots in the two losses, while receiving just two goals of offensive support. His performance was quite remarkable, considering he was sent out after arriving back in Saskaoton from Russia and the World Junior Hockey Championship at 12:25 a.m. Friday!

Second bridge not needed in Prince Albert, says province A second bridge in the Prince Albert area will not be required in the short-term or immediate future, according to a transportation planning report commissioned last year by the province, the City of Prince Albert and the RMs of Prince Albert and Buckland. “Stantec, which was hired to conduct a thorough assessment about the need for a second bridge, has concluded that, based on current growth projections, the Diefenbaker Bridge hasn’t reached its traffic volume capacity and won’t likely reach capacity for up to 30 years,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Don McMorris said. “The Province has invested $4.2 million into restoring the Diefenbaker Bridge to full service and we’re committed to working with the City of Prince Albert to ensure the bridge continues to provide reliable and predictable service to the citizens of the Prince Albert region for the rest of its design life of 25 years.” In addition to timing and location details about a second bridge, the consultant addressed the dangerous goods concerns that have been raised about the Diefenbaker Bridge route. The report states that Prince Albert is similar to other Saskatchewan cities including Regina and Saskatoon. It states that industry and all levels of government are adhering to the strictest guidelines to ensure the risks involved with dangerous goods transport are minimized. A formal agreement between the province and the City of Prince Albert for the long-term care of the Diefenbaker Bridge is recommended to ensure it continues to support the economic and social well-being of the Prince Albert region and northern Saskatchewan.

Dalmeny, Rosthern, Bruno take shot at Provincial hockey titles Shellbrook Elks looking to capture Provincial Senior AAA title and a crack at Allan Cup By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

As the Fort Carlton Hockey League (FCHL) regular season heads into the home stretch, several teams in the senior league are setting their sights not just on the league playoffs, but on provincial championships as well. The Rosthern Wheat Kings picked up several players from the Hague Royals to bolster their lineup heading into the Saskatchewan “Senior A” Provincials. The Dalmeny Fury and Bruno TBirds are also entered in the Senior A provincial playoffs, which gets underway next week. The Dalmeny Fury picked up Dan Lind of the Warman Wildcats

to give them some more scoring punch up front. The Fury have a bye through the first round of provincials, and will meet up with the winner of the playoff game between the Lanigan Pirates and Wynyard Monarchs. The second round of playoffs must be completed by February 11. The Rosthern Wheat Kings and St. Walburg Eagles both have a bye through the first round, but they meet in the second round of playoffs. The Bruno T-Birds, meanwhile, also have a bye to the second round, where they play the Eatonia Huskies. The second round of playoffs must be completed by February 11. Dalmeny and Rosthern could meet up in the third round of provincial playoffs if they both beat their first opponents. The third round must be completed by February 25. The fourth round must be completed by March 11, and the final championship round must be completed by

March 31.

SENIOR AAA The Shellbrook Elks, meanwhile, have done some wheeling and dealing with the intention of claiming the provincial Senior AAA championship and a chance to play for Amateur Hockey’s crown, the Allan Cup. The Elks take on Lloydminster in the first round of Senior AAA playoffs, which must be completed by February 18. If they win, they’ll face off against the winner of the series that pits Rosetown against Balgonie. The final best-of-five series is slated to be completed by March 11. The Allan Cup series is set for Kenora, Ontario March 29-31. FEMALE MIDGET AA The Delisle female Midget AA hockey team, which plays in the North Saskatchewan Female Hockey League (NSFHL) will face off against Dodsland West Central Wheat

Dalmeny Fury crush Tisdale Ramblers in FCHL action By TERRY PUGH

The Dalmeny Fury made short work of the Tisdale Ramblers’ short bench last Friday, crushing the visitors 9-3. The game started about half an

las Reid, Brody Foster and Trevor Matschke contributed one goal apiece. Tisdale responded with two goals by Robbie Holein and one from Ben Kelley. Fury goaltender Tynan Smysniuk wasn’t as busy as Ramblers netminder Karston Feiske, but he was sharp when he had to be. Tisdale played most of the game bottled up in their own zone, but took advantage of rare Fury defensive mistakes to send in a lone skater after breaking out

a temporary fix until a replacement safety glass panel could be installed. Dalmeny’s Justin Eden and Joel CardinalSchultz each had 2 goals and 1 assist on the evening, while Tyler Boisvert, Justin D’Entremont, Dal-

One of the panels of safety glass in the Dalmeny arena shattered after being struck by a puck on Friday, January 11 (above), and had to be temporarily replaced with a sheet of plywood (inset). The incident happened during the warmup prior to the Fort Carlton Hockey League (FCHL) game between the host Dalmeny Fury and the visiting Tisdale Ramblers.

Make good choices Blades encourage kids to adopt healthy habits By TERRY PUGH

G

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

rade 3 students at Warman Elementary School got a lesson in healthy living from a pair of Saskatoon Blades last week. Darren Dietz and Lukas Sutter gave a presentation at the school on Wednesday, January 9 aimed at helping youngsters avoid smoking and drugs by opting for healthy choices. It’s a role the two Assistant Captains with the WHL team take seriously, but they also say it’s a lot of fun talking one-on-one to their young fans. “This is the age when you can really help shape kids’ outlook on life, and mould their opinions about things,” explained Sutter. “If we can help even one kid turn away from doing something harmful or high-risk, then we’re doing our job.” Sutter said team members take a lot of pride in being good role models for children, and being active in the community. “We remember what it was like when we were their age, and when the hockey players came to our school to talk to us, it was pretty exciting,” he said. “Now we see it from the other side, and it’s still pretty exciting because the kids look up to us and the things we tell them have an impact.” Darren Dietz said the partnership between the Saskatoon Blades and the Saskatchewan Lung Association is making a positive impact on hundreds of families. “There are many temptations out there, and kids can make some bad choices because of peer pressure and other reasons,” said Dietz. “We help them by giving them reasons for why it’s a bad idea to smoke or do drugs, and provide healthy options.”

BUDDIES GROWING UP Dietz and Sutter immediately got the kids’ interest by showing slides of themselves playing minor hockey. What made it more interesting is that the Blades’ teammates are life-long buddies. While Dietz is from Medicine Hat and Sutter grew up in Lethbridge, they actually started playing on the same team when they were about 9 years old. “When I was 16 years old,, I moved in with Luke and his family and was billeted in their home,” said Dietz. “We became pretty close friends, almost like brothers.” Dietz said he grew up idolizing the Medicine Hat Tigers players, and recalls being in awe when they came to his elementary school to talk to his class. “It was pretty special,” he said. “It made a big impression on me.” Sutter had a similar experience. “I’m from Lethbridge but I grew up watching the Red Deer Rebels because my uncle (Brent Sutter) is the coach and owner of the team,” said Sutter. “When you grow up in that intense hockey tradition, it’s just second nature to play the game and do your best and strive to get better all the time.” Both players have their sights set on winning the Memorial Cup with the Saskatoon Blades when the team hosts the Canadian major junior hockey league championship tournament in May.

Cross-country ski trails now open in Martensville The City of Martensville recently opened a network of crosscountry ski trails. The trails are located in Kins-

men Park east of the tobogganing hill. According to the City of Martensville website, signs will be posted to indicate their location.

Martensville clamps down on snowmobile bylaw violations By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

An abundance of snow this winter has resulted in an increase in the number of snowmobile bylaw violations in the City of Martensville. It’s a problem that Martensville City Council is taking seriously. At a meeting in late December, Martensville City Councilor Bob Blackwell said there are too many instances of snowombilers ignoring the municipality’s traffic bylaw, putting themselves and others at risk. “I had four phone calls in one night about snowmobiles tearing up and down the streets,” said Blackwell during the December 18 meeting. “One person related how a snowmobile shot right through the stop sign at 4th Street and was almost hit by a vehicle.” Blackwell said the problem is especially serious at night because

of poor visibility. Exessive noise at night is also a sore point. “Somebody’s going to get killed if we don’t put some teeth into enforcing the bylaw,” said Blackwell. In early January, Martensville city administration took steps to curb the problem. In a recent notice to residents, Dave Bosch, Director of Recreation and Community Services, spelled out the municipality’s traffic bylaw as it relates to snowmobiles. In the letter, Bosch said the city has “received numerous complaints about snowmobiles being driven through city streets, parks, municipal reserves and drainage systems.” These parks and drainage ways were never intended for snowmobiles, Bosch noted. “They were built for walking, cross-country skiing, tobogganing and so on. The safety of those utilizing these areas is becoming a concern. Driving snom-

wobiles on city streets also creates a traffic hazards.” A section of Martensville’s traffic bylaw deals specifically with snowmobiles. Among the provisions of the bylaw are those that state: snowmobiles can only be operated within city limits between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m., and must obey a speed limit of 20 km per hour. In addition, snowmobilers must use the most direct route into and out of the city. Snowmobiles are prohibited anywhere on Centennial Drive, as well as any private property, municipal reserve or park. The full text of the bylaw can be viewed online at www.martensville.ca under “bylaws”. Bosch advised residents in his letter that if the bylaw continues to be violated, “changes to the current bylaw may be considered to eliminate snowmobiles from the city.”

HIGHWAY 16 ROLLOVER On January 8 at 9:45 a.m. police were called to a single vehicle collision on Highway 16, 1 kilometer east of Dalmeny Road.

time over the previous weekend. Tracks from a truck were observed in the snow and had been backed up to the garage, where the materials had been stored. A quantity of aluminum soffit and facia were stolen. Police are seeking public assistance in identifying the vehicle or persons that may be responsible for the theft.

MAIL BOXES DAMAGED On January 8 police were called to investigate damage to rural mail boxes on Township Road 374 near Range Road 3072, west of Saskatoon. Sometime between the 4th and 8th of January unknown persons damaged the mailboxes adjacent to this intersection. Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying any suspicious persons or vehicles that may be linked to this vandalism. Contact Crime stoppers or the Warman RCMP If you have any information. FIRE NEAR DALMENY On January 9 at 2:00 p.m. RCMP responded to a complaint of a fire at a rural address south of Dalmeny. Upon arrival at the scene it was learned that a bus, which had been converted into a recreational vehicle, had caught fire. It is believed that a propane heater left unattended in the vehicle started the blaze. The vehicle was destroyed beyond repair. There were no injuries. The fire was extinguished by the Dalmeny Fire Dept. The cause appears to be accidental. There are no charges contemplated in this matter. VEHICLE VANDALISM On January 11 at 11:00 a.m. police were contacted by a Martensville resident on MacCormack Road and advised that a 2012 Chev Silverado truck was parked in front of the residence the previous night. The owner discovered that morning that a large scratch had been inflicted upon the passenger side of the vehicle. Police are seeking the assistance of area residents who may have seen any suspicious behavior to contact

police. The matter is under investigation.

DELISLE DISTURBANCE On January 8 at 12:50 a.m. police responded to a call of a disturbance at a residence in Delisle. Police were advised that a man outside of the home was banging on the door attempting to gain entry. Police attended and located a man known to be on an undertaking not to attend at that residence. The man, a 40 year old Delisle resident, was arrested and removed from the area. He was later released to appear on a charge of breaching an undertaking. DRUGS, BOOZE BUST On January 12 at 11:00 p.m. police located a vehicle parked on highway 673 south of Delisle. The vehicle was partially obstructing the roadway and was investigated by police. Upon locating the vehicle police observed 5 men in the car and when a window was opened smoke came out of the vehicle. Police determined that the men were smoking marihuana and all five were arrested. Police located a small quantity of marihuana and some open alcohol. The driver, a 19 year old Saskatoon area man, was charged with possession of a controlled substance, having open liquor in a vehicle and was issued a 24 hour driver’s license suspension. The other four men, all aged 18 and 19 years, were also charged with possession of a controlled substance. All five were released from custody to appear in Provincial Court.

MARTENSVILLE

Rink edged out of curling playdowns Trish Pauslen edged Ros Stewart 7-6 in the “A” final Saturday at the SaskPower Women’s Northern Playdowns at the new Twin Rivers Curling Club in North Battleford to claim a berth to the Provincial Championships later this month. Stewart failed to qualify after losing in the “B” semi-finals and then a “C” final Sunday. Qualifying from the “B” event was Nancy Martin who defeated Brett Barber 6-4 in the final.
