Fire crews from Hague, Osler, Rosthern, Warman and Laird responded to and fought a massive blaze at the Valley Ford dealership in Hague on August 21. The building, which was undergoing a major renovation and expansion at the time of the fire, was destroyed with damages in the millions of dollars. The company plans to rebuild in the community but must first become operational out of temporary facilities. See page 3 for story and additional photos.

Block, Yelich seek nomination in new ridings

TOOLS OF THE TRADE Emergency responders from the Asquith Fire Dept. spent Saturday afternoon in the blazing sun learning extrication techniques while also training with the Jaws of Life and other assorted pieces of equipment. Several wrecked vehicles served as a backdrop for personnel as they simulated rescues in several different scenarios.

Kelly Block and Lynne Yelich will be seeking the Conservative Party nominations for the new riding of Humboldt-Warman-MartensvilleRosetown and SaskatoonGrasswood respectively. Block, currently the sitting Member of Parliament (MP) for the Saskatoon-RosetownBiggar constituency, made the announcement of her candidacy on Wednesday, August 21. Constituency boundaries in Saskatchewan are being realigned for the next federal election, slated to take place in 2015. In her statement, Block said the decision to seek the nomination was not made in haste. “After careful thought and consideration, and upon the advice of my family, friends, colleagues, supporters and team, I am announcing that it is my intention to seek the Conservative Party of Canada nomination in the Riding of

Humboldt-Warman-Martensville- Rosetown,” said Block. “This was not an easy decision to make as it has been a tremendous honour and a privilege to serve both the urban and rural residents in the riding of Saskatoon-Rosetown-Biggar over the past five years. “I want to sincerely thank the constituents of SaskatoonRosetown-Biggar for putting their confidence in me these past two elections and I will continue to diligently serve them until the next election, in 2015, when the new ridings take effect.”

Yelich, the MP for Blackstrap who was recently reassigned to the portfolio of Minister of State (Foreign Affairs and Consular Services), was appointed by the Prime Minister as Minister of State (Western Economic Diversification) in 2008, and re-appointed in 2011. Previously, she also served as the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Human Resources and Social Development where she was also a member of the Standing Committee on Human Resources and Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities.

Radisson councilors elected Leona Bennett and Gerald Wiebe were elected to Radisson town council in a byelection held August 21. There is still one vacancy on the Radisson town council, created when former councilor Dave Summers was elected by acclamation as Mayor of Radisson. The byelection to fill the vacancy on town council will be held in October. The date will be announced in the near future.

Hague auto dealership plans to rebuild Millions of dollars in damage as devastating fire rips through Valley Ford By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

A landmark Ford dealership in Hague is still coming to grips with a devastating fire that leveled its facility during the evening of Wednesday, August 21. But Kevin Adams, General Manager of Valley Ford, says the company will rebuild in Hague, and is committed to serving its customers and keeping its 25 employees working. “We fully intend to rebuild and be better in the long run,” said Adams. “We want to stay in this area. I guess we’ll just take it one step at a time. We have a lot of questions right now but we’re trying to stay as positive as possible.” In an interview the morning of Thursday, August 22 outside the burned-out building, Adams said while the fire has set things back for the company, which was undergoing

a massive renovation project at the time, it could have been a lot worse. “No one was injured in the fire,” said Adams. “And all the vehicles, with the exception of one, were not damaged.” Adams said the staff of the dealership are handling the loss fairly well. “My biggest concern this morning was where will our staff go to work,” he said. “They have all been fantastic. We have to try and get some answers as to what direction we’re going to go for a temporary solution and then come up with a long-term solution.” Adams had high praise for the fire departments that worked to extinguish the blaze. “I have to say thanks to the Hague Fire Department and all the crews from the surrounding communities for the great job they did,” said Adams. “There were a lot of firefight-

ers and emergency responders from Osler, Warman, Laird, and Rosthern involved in trying to get this thing contained.” The fire began just before 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 21. Deb Janzen, an employee of the dealership noticed the fire and called 911. The Hague Fire Department responded immediately, and then called in other fire departments to provide assistance. Provincial fire commissioner’s office investigators found faulty electrical wiring to be the cause of the blaze. Adams said he got a phone call about 6:00 p.m. while on holiday at Waskesiu. Two hours later, he ar-

rived back in Hague in time to see fire crews mopping up the hot spots. Adams said the dealership’s building, which was fully insured, is almost certainly a total loss. “I’m not sure how much that amounts to,” said Adams. “But it will definitely be in the millions of dollars.” However, all the new and used vehicles on the sales lot, and all but one of the customers’ vehicles in for repairs at the shop, are intact. The management and staff of the dealership are looking at all available options for maintaining sales and service to their customers. Adams said the dealership is hoping to lease temporary facilities in Hague or the surrounding area to operate its repair shop. “We are in the market for some space,” he said. “If anyone has any, we’re anxious to hear from them.” The sales department, he noted,

will likely continue to operate out of the trailer on the dealership property. “We want to get operational to some degree as soon as possible,” said Adams. “The sales can be done using the trailer on the lot once we get power and phones and internet access. But the shop is completely gutted, so the repair business is the one that is the biggest hurdle for us to get over.” Even though all the dealership’s computers and server were destroyed in the fire, all the records were backed up at the Valley Ford location in North Battleford, said Adams. The sister dealership is also providing assistance by taking all the phone calls and redirecting them to staff members’ cell phones. He said since the fire, he’s received lots of text messages, phone calls and e-mails from people offering support. “We really appreciate that,” he said.

Innovative health care model coming to rural communities: Weekes By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

Residents of rural Saskatchewan should benefit from the implementation of Collaborative Emergency Centres (CECs) in smaller centres across the province over the next few years, says Randy Weekes, Minister Responsible for Rural and Remote Health. Weekes, the MLA for Biggar constituency, said two CECs are slated to be established this fall - one each in Shaunavon and Maidstone. “A Collaborative Emergency Centre is relatively unique

rious emergency, the patient will be transported to a hospital in Saskatoon or Regina by STARS. Weekes said the introduction of CECs will provide flexibility in the health care system, while ensuring that all patients have access to 24/7 emergency care. The Minister is currently touring several communities across the province to gain feedback about the state of health care in rural Saskatchewan. He said the creation of a ministry with a focus on rural and remote health shows

Hon. Randy Weekes met with town councilors in Radisson and later in Borden on Friday, August 23 as part of a tour focusing on rural health issues in Canada,” said Weekes in an interview in Radisson on Friday, August 23. “It’s a multifaceted health care model that allows people to get rapid access to emergency health care. It’s a facility that’s staffed by a Registered Nurse and an Advanced Paramedic, and they work in consultation with an emergency room physician who is on-call at all times.” The CEC model is working well in Nova Scotia, and it is well-suited to rural Saskatchewan communities, said Weekes. He noted a variation on this model is already in place in many smaller northern communities. In the coming years, more CECs are likely to be set up in other centres. Under the Saskatchewan plan set to begin this fall, the STARS air ambulance service will be contracted to have a physician on call to work with the Advanced Paramedic and Registered Nurse at the CECs. In cases where there is a se-

the government recognizes there are concerns that need to be addressed when it comes to health care outside major centres. Weekes said the tour is aimed at gathering feedback from local health care providers, community leaders, and health regions throughout the province. “Last year, I visited 45 communities, and this year the plan is to visit another 35 to 40 communities,” said Weekes. “We tour the health care facilities in the community, meet with the staff, and if there are doctors or nurse practicioners, we have a separate meeting with them. Then we meet with the municipal councilors and health foundation chairs.” Weekes said there are common issues that surface throughout rural areas. Many communities, he acknowledged, are concerned about the need for more family phy-

sicians. “Since 2007, when we formed the government, there are 270 more phyisicans working in Saskatchewan,” said Weekes. “However, the issue is that many of these doctors are specialists and not famiy physicians. We realize the challenge is attracting and retaining more family physicians.” Weekes said the provincial government started an assessment process to bring in more foreign physicians. The Saskatchewan International Physician Practice Assessment (SIPPA), implemented in January, 2011, is the new process for assessing family medicine International Medical Graduates’ (IMGs) readiness to practise in Saskatchewan. The assessment ensures that family medicine IMGs have the appropriate mix of academic knowledge, technical skills, and clinical judgment to provide safe patient care, prior to the IMG taking up a practice in a community. Prior to the introduction of this program, IMGs were assessed after they had already begun practising, creating a disruptive situation where physicians were required to prepare for their assessment while they were building their practice, and also meant they had to leave the province for several days for the assessment. “We have three intakes of 30 physicians going through the College of Physicians and Surgeons,” said Weekes. “So that potentially means 90 more foreign grads coming into the province. We expect there will be failures and we need to upgrade in certain areas, and we’re working to address that. Most of those foreign physicians are working in rural Saskatchewan.” Weekes said the province is also trying to increase the number of Saskatchewan and Canadian medical graduates working in rural Saskatchewan. “We increased the number of training seats at the College by 40 positions, so we are now training 100 students per year,” he said. “We’ve also doubled the number of resi-

dencies from 60 to 120. Physicians need to do two years of residency, and we want them to do that here. So that’s becoming very popular in keeping physicians in rural settings. They’re going to

smaller cities like Swift Current and putting down roots in rural centres. We’re hoping that will increase the number of physicians in rural Saskatchewan.” The province also instituted

a financial incentive program that provides a $120,000 grant to physicians who practice for five years in a rural community. “It’s an attractive incentive, and more doctors are signing on with that,” he said.

Trash Talk

Save The Future Recyclers help neighbours, environment By EMMA HENLEY emma@ccgazette.ca

On average, it takes approximately a year for a regional landfill in Saskatchewan to fill a five-acre garbage pit. Ken and Lill Morenz have made their current pit at the South Corman Park Landfill last for four years; they operate the landfill under contract to Corman Park. This achievement comes down to their recycling effort. Simply put, if they don’t think what you drop off is garbage, it doesn’t belong in the dump. “If it can’t be recycled, if it can’t be reused by somebody else, if it can’t be given a new home, then it belongs in the dump,” said Ken, co-Manager of the South Corman Park Landfill and part of the Save the Future Recyclers Ken has been recycling for 48 years, “before it was cool” as he says. He started getting Lill into recycling 20 years ago. “I challenge you to name two things that I have not been able to recycle,” Ken said, grinning, during an interview. “I’ll give you a hundred bucks if you can.” So far, his son has clocked in with “a satellite from space” and I have managed to guess “human remains.” Neither of us has managed to think of any others thus far. In the same interview that lasted well over two hours, Ken and Lill shared stories about the landfill. “Some of our residents brought two exchange students from Africa here to show

them the landfill and the both of them cried,” said Lill. “They said to us ‘if we had a landfill like this back home, we would actually have materials enough to build a house.’ That just speaks volumes. “We live in a throwaway society,” Lill continued, going on to say that more than once she’s seen homeowners bring in almost brand-new appliances, such as washing machines, simply because “they didn’t like the colour.” The couple explained what was done with the items they could salvage, like furniture, appliances, cars, power tools, and countless others. Such items fill the space around the small office where Lill often sits, stripping the rubber covering off copper wire, which is dropped of almost daily at the dump. Her tightly-coiled handiwork fills several buckets. The inside of the office is just as crammed as the outside, filled with books, jewelry, videos, circuit boards from electrical equipment, and much more. Ken and Lill don’t just sell the items they salvage. When residents of the local area lost their home to black mold caused by flooding, Ken and Lil donated a multitude of wooden planks that were dropped off at the dump. The family managed to rebuild their house with this contribution. The couple also donates clothes and shoes, shipping them to countries were such necessities are solely needed. Ken and Lill make a positive difference in the lives of their residents.

“People are learning to bring their stuff to us,” said Ken. “They know it doesn’t belong in the landfill and they know we’ll find new homes for their stuff.” Even during the interview, there was one such example of this. A resident of South Corman Park arrived at the dump and purchased a power cable in good working order for $5; one that would have cost a lot more in a store. Ken and Lill are not in this for the money. “We don’t do it for us; we don’t even do it you. We do it for the future generations who are going to have to deal with a ruined planet if we don’t take care of the environment,” said Ken. “We keep things out of the landfill that don’t belong there. The RM allows the residents to bring paint to the landfill, and we’re supposed to put it in. But that would come back to bite us if the paint got into the water table. So we keep it out of there and we recycle it.” Ken stated that if the RM just made it unlawful to deposit even just metal at landfills, it would make a huge difference. Metal that should be recycled often ends up rusting underground in landfills. Judy Harwood, Reeve of the RM of Corman Park, said the council has not yet decided what is going to be done about the landfill and they are looking at all options. “If you’ve got something that’s costing us money every year, we’re going to make sure we consider all the options,” she said. “We want to make a decision that will benefit the ratepayers.” Meanwhile, Ken and Lill hold out hope that they will be able to buy the landfill from Corman Park RM and turn it into the recycling centre they envision. They have sent a proposal to the RM of Corman Park, as have several other residents of the area.

Ken Morenz out on the landfill that he and his wife have kept from being filled for years longer than is the norm. He is collecting wooden planks for resale or donation to those in need. Ken said “It takes many years for these boards to decompose, even though they’re made of wood. With a woodchipper to grind them up, they’d decompose in only five.” EMMA HENLEY | CLARK’S CROSSING GAZETTE

Taxpayers shouldn’t subsidize Saskatchewan as a tourism destination? Maybe... the forest fringe lakes provid A holiday isn’t just a great the country and the world and Actually, curiosity about ing camping and hunting opopportunity to decompress. especially from the United the success of Saskatchewan mobile phone competition States. was a common theme of many portunities or the chance to Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation

COMMENTARY

It’s not hard to understand why the Canadian government would want more companies selling mobile phones in Canada. Canadians, from coast-to-coast open their bills every month from Rogers, Telus and Bell and wish they were lower. They wish additional competition would drive up choice and drive down bills. And more competition appears to be on its way. U.S.-based Verizon Communications appears poised to enter the Canadian market. For any federal politician, it’s an attractive picture: Verizon Communications riding into Canada, like a knight in shining armour, to smite the Canadian wireless companies and save us all some money on our mobile phones. However, it shouldn’t cost Canadian taxpayers a billion dollars to achieve this. To be clear, Prime Minister Harper isn’t going to be handing a cheque for a cool billion to the CEO of Verizon on the steps of the New York Stock Exchange. He’s simply going stage an auction for wireless spectrum in January, an auction where Rogers, Telus, and Bell are not allowed to bid. Analysts expect Verizon to pay roughly $1 billion less than it would need to pay if it were bidding against the Big Three. Canadian citizens own the airwaves. The federal government, on behalf of taxpayers, makes a lot of money with its bandwidth auctions: the last one brought in $4.3 billion. That’s a lot when you consider the government expects to run an $18.7 billion deficit this year. Unfortunately, this year, at least one of those borrowed billions is headed straight into the corporate treasury of Verizon Communications in New York. Verizon doesn’t need the money: it already has 100 million customers in the U.S. In July, Verizon reported profits of $2.25 billion US in the previous three months alone, on sales of nearly $30 billion US. Nobody is going to argue, with a straight face, that Canadian wireless operators couldn’t use some more competition. But do we really need to rig an auction sale and offer Verizon a billion-dollar bonus to get into the game? And why Verizon? There’s nothing wrong with Verizon, but if we’re going to open up the market to foreign ownership and additional competition, why not just open up the auction to any company, foreign or domestic, to bid on the additional spectrum? It could be T-Mobile, AT&T, or UK companies like one of Verizon’s owners – Vodafone. Or one of the Big Three might outbid all of them. As taxpayers, isn’t it in our best interest to sell our spectrum to the highest bidder? And if it turns out that it’s a new company or two new companies that purchase the spectrum, Canadians also benefit from the increased competition. Sometimes an American operator can move in and turn the Canadian market upside down. Wal-Mart is a good example. Sometimes it’s a different story: Target’s takeover of the Canadian Zellers locations seems to be a work in progress: prices and selection in Canada don’t come close to the U.S. experience. The important difference between Wal-Mart, Target and Verizon, is that both Wal-Mart and Target had to pay full market-price to build or buy stores in Canada. They weren’t and aren’t protected from their competition. Industry Minister James Moore has clearly articulated his concern for mobile customers, but there’s apparently little concern about taxpayers and the billion they will be losing out on under this rigged auction. This upcoming auction should be a win for both customers and taxpayers.

Provincial Politics

Sometimes it’s a great opportunity to see where you live from a different perspective. Or so was the case for me during our recent family vacation to Vancouver Island – a getaway that offered me some interesting perspectives on the perception of Saskatchewan, how that perception may be changing and maybe even the tourism opportunities that exist for a province like ours. Of course, it’s really hard and perhaps a little unfair to compare the amenities of a place with beaches, oceans and mountains like Vancouver Island with most Saskatchewan communities. Island communities flourish in summer from a tourism trade that not only comes from the mainland and neighbouring Alberta but also draws a surprising number of tourists from around

islanders I encountered – whether they were originally from Saskatchewan or not. In fact, compared with our previous visits 15 and five years ago, there seemed to be a growing interest in our province and a changed perception. Some with no previous connection to this province even suggested that Saskatchewan might be a place they would like to visit one day. (One guy with a Corner Gas hat suggested he’d really like to see the community where the TV show was shot. I dared not tell what has happened to the set at Rouleau or the province’s film and television industry.) This takes us to the topic of what Saskatchewan communities – especially smaller rural communities – can do to capitalize on tourism opportunities in the future. As previously stated, we aren’t exactly blessed with quite the same amenities as Vancouver Island, but one wonders if opportunities for tourism are being missed. Place like Eastend’s T-Rex Discovery Centre and the Cypress Hills, the Big Muddy,

experience farm and ranch life, small community atmosphere or First Nations history may be greater than we realize. Of course, it would take massive co-ordination and maybe a little vision from the government and Tourism Saskatchewan. But in a province noted for its creativity, might there be possibilities? One thing we certainly have going for us is previous decades of exporting people, as demonstrated by my Parksville visit. Might it be possible that retiring baby-boomers and up in B.C., Alberta and elsewhere might want a summer week hometown visit or tour? Suppose the package included tickets to ‘Rider games? Or how about a house “exchange” program between current Saskatchewan residents and retirees elsewhere? Are there creative opportunities we’re missing? Sure, some places are blessed with more obvious tourism amenities. But that doesn’t mean we can’t make a few of our own.

Reader Opinions

Drivers need to watch for kids heading back to school Summer vacation is coming to an end and children will soon be returning to school. CAA Saskatchewan reminds drivers to slow down and to be extra aware of children on foot, on bicycles, near buses and in school zones. “Children can be easily distracted, especially with the excitement of returning to school, and catching up with friends and classmates they haven’t seen for awhile,” says Christine Niemczyk, Director of Communications with CAA Saskatchewan. “The students may just

That said, a closer examination of communities offered some surprising similarities with rural Saskatchewan communities. For starters, much of the Island is made of small-town communities still reliant on commodity-based industries like agriculture and fishing ...albeit, they tend to be highly subsidized with the tourism industry that also benefits from better weather extending the visitation season to far longer than we enjoy here in Saskatchewan. In fact, it’s that weather that attracted so many ex-pat Saskatchewanians to the Island, or so we quickly found out. At the Parksville condo where we stayed, no less than three of five adjacent residents were occupied by one-time Saskatchewan folk who once called places like Moosomin, Pense and Rose Valley home. All seemed very anxious to get news from home – whether it be the recent good fortune of the ‘Riders, the number of moose making their homes in the flatlands or the upturn in the economy.

Saskatoon Health Region washing its hands of germs By EMMA HENLEY emma@ccgazette.ca

The Saskatoon Health Region is taking steps to encourage people to stay safe from disease by creating the Germ Smart campaign, which focuses on good hand hygiene. “We want to make it socially unacceptable to not wash your hands,” said Julie Kryzanowski, Deputy Medical Health Officer for the Saskatoon Health Region, in a press conference, July 22. According to a recent study from the University of Michigan, only five per cent of people who wash their hands wash

them long enough to prevent the spread of illness. This same study revealed that 15 per cent of men and seven per cent of women don’t wash their hands at all after using the washroom. Hands and contaminated surfaces spread 80 per cent of infectious diseases. The Saskatoon Health Region hopes to minimize this number by convincing children and adults to observe proper hand-washing technique. Karen Grauer, Manager of Disease Control for the Saskatoon Health Region, explained at the press conference what happens when individu-

als, or organizations, join up with Germ Smart. “People who sign up receive a package of materials and are allowed access to the Germ Smart website,” she said. “Once they’ve committed to being “Germ Smart” we ask that they create an environment that supports clean hands. We ask that they have bathroom facilities with warm water, soap, and paper towel. Sanitation gel must be visibly available, and tissues on hand to help contain coughs and sneezes. We ask that they put up prompts for hand cleaning, and that there is regular cleaning of all publicly-touched

Corman Park bylaws require landowners to keep animals fenced Roaming animals can do a lot of damage in rural areas Submitted by

SGT. JOHN GARNET

Acting Chief, Corman Park Police

Last month I gave out another reminder about stray dogs... this month I would like to remind people that Saskatchewan has a ‘closed herd’ policy. That means you must keep your animals in a properly fenced field or enclosure. The kind of animal determines the kind of fence required. For cattle a three strand barbed wire fence is appropriate. For larger animals, like bison, the fencing requirements increase. Deer and elk require tall fences. The type of fence required for different animals can be found online under the Stray Animals Act or Regulations, or by contacting the Minister of Agriculture. The RM of Corman Park does impound animals wandering at large. We like to see them returned them to their owners but do take them to the pound when owners aren’t located. The fees are huge when you calculate in time to round them up, transport fees, RM fees, pound fees

and other costs, and the animal owner can be held liable for damages their animals do to other persons property. Please remember to contact the RM if animals come onto your property.

POLICE COOPERATION

It’s not just dogs, cats and cattle that wander either - a few weeks ago a couple enjoying the evening outside on their deck, on the east side, had a falcon join them. It stayed for a hotdog and then left a while later. Probably not quite as well trained as the owner thought.

PELLET GUN POACHING

A couple of weeks ago two of our members encountered a couple of young men shooting ducks with pellet guns. They had them cleaned and ready to take home to eat. Poaching of this sort is against the law! Their guns were seized and the shooter was given a $910.00 fine.

The first of two 32-unit, fourstorey independent-living seniors housing complexes is expected to begin construction in Martensville this winter, and should take about a year to complete. The second, identical building, is on the drawing board to be built two years later. WEBSITE EXCLUSIVE Get stories like this plus more photos before anyone else! Breaking news as it happens online for free at: www.ccgazette.ca

The project has been in the works for well over a year, and after a few changes in the design and the location, it’s on the verge of becoming a reality, said Terri Hetterly, a member of the Martensville Housing Development Corporation (MHDC). “We’re finally getting somewhere,” said Hetterly in an interview on Thursday, August 22. “It’s been a long process, but we’re ready now to hand over the reins for Phase 1 of the project - which will be an independent living complex for residents 50 years of age and older. Hetterly said the first phase of the project will be built by Bridge Road Developments on property in the new Lake Vista neighbourhood in Martensville. Bridge Road Developments (www.bridgeroad.ca) specializes in building active adult living apartment complexes. So far, it has projects in 12 Saskatchewan locations. The Lake Vista project is

CLARK’S CROSSING GAZETTE | THURSDAY, AUGUST 29, 2013 PG. 8

a large-scale, multi-year development located east of the Martensville Aquatic Centre, which is being undertaken by North Ridge Developments. It is the largest single development initiated by North Ridge. Initially, the MHDC plan was to partner with Bridge Road Developments to build a 24-unit building on donated land south and east of Martensville. However, there were some challenges associated with that location, said Hetterly. “There were issues associated with annexation, and the cost of servicing the land is very expensive,” she explained. “When you look at hooking up to all the utilities, as well as other related costs, it adds up pretty quickly.” She said purchasing serviced land in the new Lake Vista neighbourhood is much less complicated, and in the end, the cost was comparable. “The land is being purchased by the shareholders of the project and Bridge Road Developments,” said Hetterly. “North Ridge had already set aside some areas of the new neighbourhood for multi-unit dwellings, so that’s where it will be located.” The MHDC intends to retain the donated parcel of land and eventually build another multi-unit seniors complex on the property. But that project will be a few years down the road, and will be designed to meet the needs of the community at that time, according to Hetterly. “The donated land will be

used at a later date for Phase II,” she said. “The MHDC hopes Phase II will eventually include all levels of senior housing.” The MHDC said the decision to go with two buildings in Phase I, and to increase the number of units per building, was a reflection of public interest in the project. “There has been a lot of people come forward looking to either live in the building, or who see it as a good investment,” she said. “At this point there are enough investors that we were able to put a down payment on the land. There is still a need for more investors, though.” Hetterly said there are many details that still need to be worked out, but the big decisions are now finalized. “Bridge Road opted to go ahead with this because they feel Martensville is growing so quickly that there will certainly be a lot of demand for this type of housing in the very near future,” she said. “It’s been a long road and a big learning curve, but as a committee we’ve accomplished a lot. Now we’re stepping back and letting the people who will be in the building take over the reins of the project for Phase I.” People interested in becoming a tenant in the building, or in investing in the project, can contact Terri Hetterly at 306249-1917, Peggy Burton with Bridge Road Developments at 1-855-309-8297 or Ken Rempel with Bridge Road Developments at 1-800-294-7586.

WIRE TRANSFER FRAUD

Saskatoon police warn of telephone fraud scam Saskatoon Police are advising the public to be on guard against a telephone scam. Police have received 5 complaints where victims have been defrauded by individuals calling on behalf of a relative. The victims report sending money by wire transfer to out of province locations, thinking that the money was going to help a family member in trouble. The fraudster preys on unsuspecting victims by posing as someone who knows or is the vic-

tim’s relative. They then explain that they are in trouble and need money sent to get out of it. The Saskatoon Police Service is reminding the public to: verify who you are dealing with; independently confirm their name, street address and phone number; never agree to send any funds by way of a wire transfer without first being able to verify the request; protect your personal information and do not give out your credit card or banking information.

Retail sales up, unemployment declines Retail sales in June hit a record for the month totalling $1.6 billion, according to a new report released by Statistics Canada last week. Another report on employment insurance claims show Saskatchewan had a drop of 3.0 per cent in claims on a year-over-year basis. “With great job numbers and higher wages it’s no surprise that retail sales are going to increase and that fewer people are collecting employment insurance,” Economy Minister

Bill Boyd said. “In terms of the retail sales, higher wages have resulted in a willingness to invest into our economy, which keeps Saskatchewan moving forward. Annually, retail sales climbed up 6.1 per cent, the third best in the nation. On a monthly basis, retail sales were up 1.2 per cent between May 2013 and June 2013, the fourth highest percentage increase among the provinces. Saskatchewan had the sec-

ond lowest number of regular EI beneficiaries as a percentage of the working-age population at 1.3 per cent. On a monthover-month basis, the number of regular EI beneficiaries dropped 2.4 per cent, the second best among Canadian provinces. “Ultimately, both reports show that Saskatchewan people are experiencing a better quality of life with the extra purchasing power and the availability of jobs,” Boyd said.

Warman looking to set up monthly tax payment plan for homeowners The City of Warman is aiming to make it easier for residents to spread their property tax payments out over a full year. A draft bylaw setting up a Tax Instalment Payment Plan Service (TIPPS) was tabled for discussion at the Warman City Council meeting on Monday, August 26. The bylaw will be introduced for first reading at a later date. Under the TIPPS program, which is already in place in several other area communities,

homeowners will be able to pay their taxes in twelve automatic monthly instalments. A second draft bylaw dealing with penalties for unpaid taxes was also tabled at the meeting, and is also slated to come forward for first reading at a later council meeting. The tax penalty bylaw will change the current schedule of penalties and also eliminate the discount on early payment of taxes.

DEBT LIMIT INCREASE

The City of Warman is asking

the Saskatchewan Municipal Board to increase its debt limit to $20 million for the next three years. A resolution to that effect was adopted at the August 26 council meeting.

SEWAGE FORCE MAIN

A pipeline contract for the sanitary sewer force main from Sewage Lift Station 8 to the Warman Lagoon was approved at the meeting. The contract in the amount of $2,491,969 was awarded to DC Trenching Ltd.

Martensville approves speed warning sign The City of Martensville has approved funds to purchase a portable speed warning sign as a way of encouraging drivers to slow down. A portable speed sign attached to a trailer will help control speeding, and allow the city to provide data to the RCMP. A motion to earmark $11,250 for the sign and trailer was approved by Martensville City Council at its most recent meeting on Tuesday, August 20. The benefits of the sign, which can be moved to different neighbourhoods throughout the municipality, are numerous ac-

cording to a report by the city’s public works deparment. The initiative is aimed at supporting safe driving habits by focusing on problem areas, such as school zones. “It is a cost-effective and flexble option,” noted the public works department report. The amount set aside for the trailer and sign was based on the low bid submitted by prospective suppliers.

LAGOON EXPANSION

The Martensville lagoon expansion project is about onethird complete. Joe Doxey, Di-

rector of Iinfrastructure and Planning for the city, told the August 20 council meeting that the contract budget was $1.65 million. However, additional costs due to the need for additional earthwork will add approximately $150,000 to the total cost of the project. This sum, he added, is still within the planned contingency for the project. The city is also working to alleviate problems with excessive odors from the lagoon. The odors are likely caused by low oxygen content in the lagoon from an overload in organics.

Osler artist nominated for Sask. Arts Board award Clint Neufeld of Osler is one of 22 nominees shortlisted for the 2013 Lieutenant Governor’s Arts Awards. The announcement was made last week by the Saskatchewan Arts Board. The awards celebrate the contributions and achievements of individuals, groups and organizations in all arts disciplines. The recipients of the awards will be announced on Wednesday, September 25.

CLINT NEUFELD’S ART

By casting 50s-era vehicle engines in porcelain, Clint’s work blurs contradictions between the masculinity of car culture with nostalgia and the notions Clint Neufeld of beauty, complexity, and fragility. Glossy pieces painted in delicate hues are displayed atop pristine settees and other vintage furniture, further challenging observer expectation regarding traditional gender pursuits, artistic display, and even fancy versus function. His work has been featured extensively in Canadian solo exhi-

bitions, including at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, Toronto’s Koffler Centre of the Arts Gallery, the Parisian Laundry Gallery in Montreal, and the Mendel Art Gallery in Saskatoon. His inclusion in the 2012 multi-media exhibit Oh, Canada at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA) was a focal point in his career thus far, given the exhibit was the largest survey of contemporary Canadian art ever produced outside Canada. In 2011, Two Rivers Gallery in Prince George published a catalogue of his work; that same year, he was shortlisted for the Winifred Shantz National Ceramics Award. His pieces have been well received and regarded at international art fairs, and diverse public and private collections now contain Clint’s work. Before earning a BFA from the University of Saskatchewan and an MFA from Concordia, Clint was deployed to the former Yugoslavia as a Canadian Army corporal, and also trained as a firefighter. Though he continues to gain recognition both nationally and internationally as a noted modern artist, Clint chooses to live and work on an acreage in Osler, Saskatchewan, where he hosts an annual art showing of his work, as well as that of other emerging artists.

Langham theatre club ropes in the laughs with unique Western parody By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

A man’s got to do what a man’s got to do to make a living. Even if it means donning a dress in the old west - and running a salon instead of a saloon. The Langham Theatrical Company’s latest dinner theatre production, “Way Out West in a Dress” is set to open in early November. And when tickets go on sale September 16, it’s a sure bet they’ll be scooped up quickly. Sela Balzer, Artistic Director of the Langham Theatrical Company, said the script is perfect for the community theatre group. And she’s enlisted the help of Gillian Pearson of the Langham Prairie Players to bolster the musical end of the production. “It’s a good combination,” said Balzer in an interview recently. “I’ve always been a little reluctant to do a musical because it’s an added challenge for the actors. You’re asking them to do a lot. But Gillian is very good at choreography and getting the best out of singers and musicians, so it’s working out very well.” Balzer said the play is set in 1895, a period when the western frontier era is fading. “It’s a love story, a musical, a comedy and old-fashioned Victorian melodrama all rolled into one,” she said. In the script, a troupe of actors find themselves in Nevada after one of them has mistakenly thought he inherited a profitable saloon. Turns out he’s saddled with the Lucky Lady

Actors Martin Bembridge (left) and Erron Leafloor star in the upcoming dinner theatre production of “Way Out West in a Dress” by the Langham Theatrical Company.

Salon, a beauty parlor. So two of the actors pretend to be European hair stylists. Things go from bad to worse in a series of plot twists punctuated with uproarious musical numbers and puns galore.

Balzer said she’s enjoying the rehearsals, which started this week, and is excited about putting the show on the community stage in early November. “It’s a ton of fun. People won’t want to miss this one.”

The Barn Playhouse musical hits all the right notes Saddle pals take audience on a whimsical silver-screen trail ride By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

When the opening night audience responds with a standing ovation, you know you’ve got a hit on your hands. The Barn Playhouse production of “Chaps!” came out of the chute with six-guns a-blazing - and delivered a show that - as the actors’ old saying goes - knocked ‘em dead. The cast and crew of the nostalgic western musical hit all the right notes in the first of a string of shows that winds up this weekend. Set in London, England during the darkest days of the Battle of Britain, with bombs raining down on the British Broadcasting Corpo-

ration (BBC) studio, the plot involves a live radio broadcast of an American western singing group. But when the stars of the show don’t show, the plucky Brits step into the breach some more reluctantly than others. Grant Martens does a bang-up job as Archie Letch, a radio technician who finds himself thrown into the limelight as a stand-in for Tex Riley, the famous American singing cowboy. Archie knows how to strum a guitar and looks good in a Stetson, so he slips comfortably into his make-believe role like a six-gun into a holster. Sean Sperling as Leslie Briggs-Straton, the formal announcer, is a little more of a stuffed-

shirt. His character is less comfortable being stuffed into the cowboy sidekick role, but by the end of the play he’s got the audience in stitches. Alison Klassen as Mildred Shadwell, Liz Scott as Clara Cooper, and Gwenda MacPherson as Mabel Halliday bring their comedic talents and wonderful singing voices to their roles. Accompanied by the band of Vickie Dyck, Tony Allen and Gordon Sayers, the actors take the audience along on a trail ride full of Saturday-morning cowboy movie memories. And it wasn’t just the cast members doing the singing. The audience wasn’t shy about joining

in on old favourites like “Cattle Call,” “Back in the Saddle Again” and “Tumblin’ Tumbleweeds.” There was a particularly sweet rendition of “Cowboy’s Sweetheart” and a poignant and moving medley of “Bluebirds (over the White Cliffs of Dover)” and “Round-up in the Spring” that brought more than a few tears to the eye. In the end, it was all about the music. There’s something really special about oldtime western cowboy songs that celebrate freedom and wide-open spaces. Walking out of the Barn Playhouse after the show and gazing into a glorious western prairie sunset, it’s easy to see how where those songs came from.

Message from Mayor Sheryl Spence Here we are, drawing near the end of August. It has been a great summer and the temperatures have been as we hoped, hot. By now most of us have had that much needed summer vacation. I know I have spent a lot of time at our cabin at Candle Lake. Our annual family get together on the long weekend in August was a wonderful and enjoyable time spent with my children, their spouses and all the grandchildren. Bringing the entire family together from across Canada was worth the effort and expense. Our summer break helps us to relax, well sort of, helps us to get recharged and ready for the busyness of the fall. One wish would be that the summer days were much longer and its weather would drag far into the autumn months. Warman has been busy this summer with construction of all types. Housing, commercial and road upgrades have kept many busy. Our summer programs at the library, at the Legends Center and the parks have kept our kids occupied. Thank you to the many staff and volunteers who dedicated much of their summer time to entertain our young people. From the high numbers of participants, they must really enjoy all the activities and outings being planned.

This week, Thursday August 29th, Warman will once again host the annual Sports Celebrity Dinner. We are pretty excited this year for many reasons. The line-up of sports celebrities is outstanding and this will be the first year we will be hosting the event at the Legends Center! The Sports Celebrity Dinner began seven years ago as a fundraiser to help build and develop the Legends Center into a first-rate facility that would serve Warman and area. It was a tough road but here we are all these years later and we couldn’t be more proud of this fabulous facility. Home to wonderful sporting facilities, programming and many new businesses, the Legends Center truly is a community hub here in Warman. Now back to the Sports Celebrity event. Joe Carter is our head liner and from all accounts we are really looking forward to an enjoyable and entertaining evening. The evening will be filled with delicious food (catered by Country Style Barbecue) interesting guest speakers, great auction items, and a ‘Meet and Greet’ that allows you to meet the celebrities and if you would like anything signed they are willing to do that for you as well. Come out and be thoroughly entertained and while you are at it, snoop through this fantastic new Recreational / Community facility.

September is around the corner and you know what that means; our kids are heading back to school. Warman Community Middle Years School (WCMS) will open its doors to the community and I can tell you we will be impressed with this much needed educational facility. However we need to remember the project is not 100% finished yet so please be patient. When the school is complete it will be home to grades 4 - 8 and will provide an exceptional experience for the students and community alike. This new school will host an opening Barbecue on Thursday September 5th, 5:00pm - 6:30pm. Please come on out and see what all the fuss is about! Signing off for now… Enjoy the rest of your summer and hopefully I will see many of you at the Sports Celebrity Dinner. ~ Sheryl The tan lines will fade but the memories won’t. ......

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR SCHOOL VOLUNTEERS Prairie Spirit School Division Policy 501 – Sections 7 and 8 - Criminal Record Checks for Volunteers As a School Division we are always working to create a safe environment for our students. We have learned about extra measures we should be taking to ensure safety beyond the regular classroom with respect to our volunteers. We are hopeful that our parents and community will understand and support this new measure to further protect our students. Our School Division will require criminal records check for some volunteers. Those who must provide a criminal record check are: • Any person who is a non-parent and is acting as a volunteer for school sponsored activities in Prairie Spirit School Division. • Any person acting as a volunteer for school sponsored activities that have direct or sole responsibility for providing supervision of students. Any person acting as a volunteer for school sponsored overnight activities. Parent volunteers (including grandparents or legal guardians) who are volunteering and are under the supervision of a Prairie Spirit employee do not require a criminal records check if they are simply working in the school on a daily basis. Schools may, however, ask new parents or parents unknown to the school to provide personal references from known members of the community or, in lieu of meeting these requirements, may require them to provide a criminal record check. If you are a person who is volunteering in one of our schools and we require a criminal record check, we will ask you to read our policy, so that you understand the implications. Please check with the Principal or Vice-Principal to confirm if a criminal records check is required. If while volunteering, you are charged with a criminal offence, we are asking you to provide us with that information, again, with the thought that we always want to do what is best for the safety of our students. We are proud to work toward creating the safest possible environment for our students. Your support is appreciated!!

Area football teams set to start new season By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

Class is back in session for high school football players. A heavy practice schedule for area teams got underway this week, as veterans and rookies try to shake off the rust and get back in game shape. They don’t have a lot of time. With exhibition games slated for the first week of September, and the regular season starting in earnest a week later, training camp is more like a crash course. With the emphasis on “crash”. The Martensville Royals were banging into each other during their first practice on Thursday, August 22. The Royals field a 9-man team that plays in Conference 4 along with the Warman Wolverines and Delisle Reb-

els - two squads that started practicing on Monday, August 26. The other teams in the conference are Meadow Lake, Kindersley and North Battleford’s John Paul II high school. The Royals play an exhibition game against Foam Lake on August 29, before starting the regular season against the Warman Wolverines on Friday, September 6. That game is slated for 4:00 p.m. at Neufeld Field in Warman. The Delisle Rebels host JPII in a pre-season exhibition game on Friday, August 30. Game time is 4:00 p.m. The Rebels’ regular season gets underway Friday, September 6 when they travel to Kindersley to play the Kobras. The Clavet Cougars 9-man football team is in Conference 1, along with Humboldt, Melfort, Nipawin and Tisdale.

Games tightening up heading into Labour Day Confidence. If you could bottle and sell it, you’d be a millionaire. Actually a quick Google search tells me a few fragrance-makers have tried that in the past, but quickly wound up in the clearance bin. But seriously, the confidence the Saskatchewan Roughriders are displaying right now as we approach the midway point of the 2013 CFL season is as much good news for them as it is bad news for the league’s seven other teams. The Riders took a stellar 5-0 record into the bye week in early August and have emerged with two narrow victories and a deserved loss in the three games since to stand alone on top of the CFL at 7-1. It’s the first time in my lifetime this has happened, and likely yours as well. In fact in the franchise’s 103 years, they’ve only been 7-1 once before and it was in 1971. When football maven John Lynch proclaimed on our sports talk show earlier this season “This is the greatest Rider team of all-time!”, I only smiled and nodded, thinking he was off his rocker. He’s covered this team since the 1960s but I

RIDER INSIDER ROD PEDERSEN

thought his was a vast exaggeration. However he could be right. If you’ve been reading this column weekly you’ll recall we’ve chronicled the club’s record-setting start to the season all along and it hasn’t cooled off. Perhaps the most-impressive mark comes from Rider tailback Kory Sheets who entered the record books Saturday in Edmonton, hitting 1,000 yards rushing faster than anyone else in CFL history. The sophomore from Purdue certainly has a flair for the dramatic, hitting 1,000 yards in his eighth game on a touchdown run in the third quarter. He’s all flash and dash. It’s incredible. And quarterback Darian Durant has gone a mind-boggling seven games without throwing an interception. Obviously this all adds up to success in the win column.

They’re hungry for more too. The Riders were spanking teams in the early going this season but their last two victories have come by a combined six points. And both were exciting come-from-behind victories in the dying moments. There’s a reason for that. “It’s the second six (games) of the season and teams shore up in this period,” reasoned Rider coach Corey Chamblin after Saturday’s game. “The biggest thing is we came out with the win. The guys were like clockwork, slow and steady, but we got it done.” That’s where the confidence comes in. Although they were winning games by double digits in the summer months, and lately games have gone down to the wire, the Riders still know they’ll be on top once the clock hits 0:00. There’s no other word for that than “confidence”.

“In the second six of the season all teams will be more evenly matched because they’ve gone through their ups and downs in the first six,” Chamblin continued. “The games won’t be like the first six when we ran away with them.” Does that include the Winnipeg Blue Bombers? The hapless 1-7 Bombers are in the Riders’ sights now as the prairie rivals head into back-to-back games against each other beginning with Sunday’s Labour Day Classic in Regina and ending with the Banjo Bowl a week later at the brand new Investors Group Field in Winnipeg. It’s 7-1 versus 1-7. My how the tables have turned. Two years ago the records were reversed as high-flying Winnipeg came into Regina, needling the Riders about their pathetic record. However a well-timed coaching change spurred the Riders to consecutive victories over the Bombers and turned Swaggerville to Saggerville. We haven’t heard the term since! So what will happen this time around? Only the football gods know for sure but one thing is certain. This is where it starts to get fun.

Blades open training camp in Warman The Saskatoon Blades whittled their training camp roster from 90 players to just over 30 last weekend following the team’s annual Blue and White intra-squad game. Team Blue beat Team White 8-2 on Sunday, August 25 in a game that featured an all-rookie lineup on both squads. Blades coach Dave Struch told reporters that the young players who were selected for the game showed they were determined to make the cut, and therefore deserved to be on the roster. Struch said this was the best training camp he’s experienced so far in his eight years in a coaching capacity with the team. He said Sunday’s game “looked like it really mattered to to the kids, and that’s a good start for the organization when you’ve got that kind of youth and that kind of enthusiasm and that kind of will to win the

game. It was a special day for the kids and really good for us and our scouting staff.” Struch said the coming season will be a “growth year” for the team, and gives the organization a chance to bring in a lot of young players. The Blades’ training camp continues until Monday Sep-

tember 3 at the Legends Centre in Warman. The Blades play a Western Hockey League pre-season game against the Prince Albert Raiders in Warman on Saturday, September 14. Tickets for the game go on sale through the Warman Minor Hockey Association.

Senior athlete adds to medal collection at national, international track events By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

At age 75, most folks are happy to get out of bed in the morning without too many aches and pains. But for one senior athlete who calls both Dalmeny and Radisson home, running a five or ten kilometer race is just another routine day at the office. Hylke van der Wal has been a dedicated track and field athlete for over six decades, and he shows no signs of slowing down. Not that van der Wal hasn’t experienced the pains that come with the normal aging process, and a few other medical problems. He’s just learned to deal with the rough patches and focus on staying active. Being a member of “Athletes in Action” has helped him cope with the challenges, he said. On July 21, the 75-year-old athlete earned a gold medal in the five kilometer “Double Double” in Denver, Colorado. The event is billed as a “double road race” that features a 10 kilometer leg followed by a 5 kilometer leg, with a break in between the two races. But van der Wal said the intermission, as advertised, was a little deceptive. “It was supposed to be an hour and forty-five minutes,” he said in an interview on Wednesday, August 14. “And it

probably was that long for the folks who finished first in the first leg, but by the time I got to the finish line, they were ready to start the second leg right away. It wasn’t much of a rest for me, that’s for sure.” Still, van der Wal did well enough in the second leg of the race to place first overall for his age class. Not a bad result, especially considering there was a big field of competitors from across the United States and Canada. He followed that performance with a big haul of medals at the national Senior Games in Regina in early August. His collection of hardware includes five gold medals, one silver and two bronze. The events he participated in were the 300 meter hurdles, 800 meter dash, 400 meter dash, steeplechase, pole vault, outdoor pentathlon (including long jump, discus and javelin) and a 4x400 meter relay. The most rewarding event, he said, was the relay. One of his teammates was an 89year old woman, who received a standing ovation from the crowd when she doggedly completed her portion of the race. “It shows that if you stay active, you can accomplish a lot,” said van der Wal.. “For me, it’s been a big part of my life, and I intend to keep on as long as I can. I love going to the big events, but it’s getting a little expensive.”

Hylke van der Wal, 75 years young, has been participating in track and field events for over six decades

Martensville okays change to Lake Vista plan An amendment to the Lake Vista neighbourhood concept plan was approved by the City of Martensville council at its most recent meeting on Tuesday, August 20. The change, submitted by North Ridge Developments, involves Phase 5 in the southern portion of the neighbourhood. According to the developer, the amendment is designed to consolidate the majority of the commercial properties into one area of the neighbourhood. This would improve pedestrian access by allowing residents to walk to a single area for shopping and restaurants, rather than having to drive a vehicle to multiple areas. The change also incorporates additional walking paths and improves the safety and convenience of pedestrian traffic.

The change also benefits traffic flow by reducing the number of left turns, and centralizes vehicle parking, reducing the potential for vehicle-pedestrian conflicts. A third change allows commercial areas to take advantage of a large pond as an additional focal point and amenity.

ATHLETIC PAVILION WORK

Construction work on the Martensville Athletic Pavilion is progressing, according to a report presented at the August 20 Martensville City Council meeting. Concrete work on the foundation of the building is expected to start this week. Water, sewer and storm sewer contractors have been on site doing work on the project as well. The actuual construction of the Sprung

structure will begin during the second or third week of September. The pavilion will be attached to the new portion of Martensville High School in the future.

REGIONAL PLANNING

Martensville City officials are continuing to work with other area municipalities on regional planning initiatives. The next regional planning meeting is set for September. Municipal representatives from Martensville also met recently with officials from the City of Saskatoon to discuss regional wastewater options. Warman and Corman Park are also involved in discussions concerning future potential regional wastewater treatment options.

The Dalmeny Baseball Association is looking to upgrade one of the diamonds at Centennial Park in Dalmeny. And members of the volunteer minor sports group are willing to pitch in with their own money to get the work done. Dalmeny Town Council approved a request by Dalmeny Baseball Inc. to redo the infield surface of the Red Diamond at Centennial Park. The estimated cost of the project will be just under $10,000. According to Bobby Mark, President of Dalmeny Baseball, the work will take place this fall and is slated to be done in time for next season. Dalmeny Town Councilor Jon Kroeker said he was happy to see the proposal, and noted that while the town’s long-term plans include building new ball diamonds in a different location, it could be a decade until those plans come to fruition. “In the meantime, we’re still going to need the existing diamonds, and there’s a possibility we could need them even if and when new diamonds are built,”

said Kroeker. Dalmeny Mayor Allan Earle said since the town is working hard to attract young families, it makes sense to impove recreatonal facilities.

The town council did not commit any public funds to the project, but has invited the baseball association representatives to a future council meeting to further discuss the issue.

About 20 firefighters from three volunteer fire departments battled high winds and difficult terrain to contain a grass and bush fire north of Langham on Wednesday, August 21. Langham Fire Department was the first to respond to the blaze, which began shortly before 5:00 p.m.. The call was sent to Dalmeny and Borden for assistance when it became clear there was a danger of the fire spreading because of a strong westerly breeze. Langham Deputy Fire Chief Jory Wynd said it was a tricky fire to contain. “I would estimate the fire covered between 20 to 30 acres,” said Wynd in an interview after the fire. “It didn’t take long to spread because of the wind, and with something like that you need a lot of people over a big area to fight it.” When he arrived on the scene, Wynd called Dalmeny right away for backup. “And once Dalmeny got there, we sized things up and made the decision to also bring in Borden,” he said. “Luckily the wind was from the north and west, but there was some concern the wind

could shift at any time, and that would have threatened homes in the Sarilia Country Estates development along the riverbank.” The property where the fire originated is situated in the RM of Laird about 6 kilometers north of Langham on the east side of Range Road 3074 and north of Township Road 400. Township Road 400 is the boundary line between the RM of Corman Park and the RM of Laird. Wynd said the RM of Corman Park firefighters have a mutual aid arrangement with the RM of Laird. “That arrangement covers situations like this, where it’s a lot closer for us to come,” said Wynd.”The closest fire deaprtment in the RM of Laird would be Hepburn.” It took firefighters several hours to fight the fire because of difficulty accessing the area. At least one fence had to be cut to provide an opening for four-wheel drive trucks. Wynd said the fire was completely out by 11:00 p.m. The most likely cause of the blaze was a campfire that got out of control, said Wynd. “There was a sweat-lodge ceremony planned for that day by residents, and they were heat-

CLARK’S CROSSING GAZETTE • THURSDAY, AUGUST 29, 2013 lation of the Provincial Film Tax Credit. When asked if something like the filming and premiere of “Rufus” in the province would be able to happen going forward, Coates’ answer was a blunt “no. It’s not possible. This is a really tough time for the film industry in Saskatchewan, and there is no reason for it to be. The province is booming. This is completely the wrong time for [the cancellation] to happen.” For his part, in the days leading up to the screening and on that night, Ramayya lamented the lost opportunities for communities like Dundurn. “I had such a positive experience working with everyone in Dun-

Feature film shot in Dundurn pulls in the crowds during premiere showing By KIRA OLFERT k.olfert@yahoo.ca

The Saskatchewan premiere of the motion picture “Rufus” took place at the beautiful Roxy Theatre in Saskatoon on Friday, August 16th. Shot in and around Dundurn in early 2012, the Karma Film picture explores how being different affects us all, through the eyes of a teenaged vampire who is trying to fit in with the humans around him. A large, appreciative crowd, including around 40 people from Dundurn, turned out for the screening, many waiting in line for tickets for as much as an hour before the doors opened. Producer Anand Ramayya and star Kim Coates, best known as Tig Hauer from “Sons of Anarchy” were also in attendance. Char Seymour and her family were some of the first in line. Their experience with the production started back in October 2011 when Seymour noticed writer/director Dave Schultz taking pictures of her house. When she went out and inquired as to what was

going on, Seymour says “they told me they were scouting locations for a movie that was going to be shot in town, and the whole time he was talking to me, I noticed that he was staring past me at my front staircase, so I asked them if they wanted to come in.” Her openness resulted in the Seymour home being used as one of the two main houses in the film. During the filming, the family was able to meet the actors, including JAG’s David James Elliot and The OC’s Kelly Rowan, along with newcomer Rory Saper, and hang out on location behind the scenes. At one point, according to Seymour, the family even lived on the set for a two week period between when certain scenes in the house were shot. “We would be sitting on the couch taking pictures of ourselves watching television in ‘Tracey’s’ living room,” Seymour says. She adds “it was really something special to see it all come together up on the screen.” Dundurn resident Norma Edmunds and her family also

took in the film on Friday. After attending an open casting call with her daughters, Edmunds was cast as an extra in the diner scene in the film and explains how she “spent four hours pretending to talk and to drink coffee.” On Friday night, Edmunds was “excited to see myself on the screen in a movie with actors that I recognize and watch. It was pretty cool.” Daughter Lexi adds that “it was kind of surreal to see our town through the camera lens.” Edmunds agrees that “it was a little disorienting, but obviously, we were really proud to see our town on the screen.” Along with the Seymour’s home, the Dundurn United Church, Town Hall, Hotel and several other older buildings in the town were heavily featured in “Rufus.” Both Coates and Ramayya took part in a Q&A session with fans after the viewing, where both men spoke about their pride in the film and their frustration with the state of the film industry in the province after the cancel-

durn,” he says, adding, “they were a pleasure to work with, and they were so excited about what was going on in their town. To see Dundurn up on the big screen is a chance to give the residents pride of place. And now other communities in the province aren’t going to have that chance.” In fact, Ramayya was so impressed with Dundurn, he had plans to move an animation studio into the town’s unused curling rink. That studio will now be opened in India, where Ramayya and his family will split their time with Saskatoon from now on. Dundurn will be showcased worldwide as “Rufus” is distributed internationally in

the next few months. After its theatrical run finishes, the film will play on The Movie Network, Movie Central and City TV. Rufus was the winner of five awards at the recent Alberta Motion Pictures Awards, taking home the Rosie for Best Dramatic Feature, Best Cinematography, Best Direction, Best Screenplay and Best Music Video. It has screened at film festivals all over the world, the Milan International Film Festival, where it was nominated for four awards, including best actor for Saper, as well as for Cinematography, Editing and Production Design, and will play at The Roxy until the end of the week.
