Warman, Osler fire departments get financial boost from new thrift store By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

The Osler and Warman fire departments have each received a $500 financial contribution from a newly-opened thrift store in Warman. Bill and Elaine Peters opened the I-Deal-To-U thrift store at the former OK Tire location in Warman earlier this summer. The couple, who lease the building, say they are committed to donating any profits from the famiyowned enterprise to area fire departments and local charities. The store opened July 8, and Elaine Peters said the $1,000 donation ($500 each to the Warman and Osler fire departments), represented the profits after expenses for the first six weeks of business at the store. “This is going to be an ongoing thing,” said Elaine Peters. “We have to cover our expenses like our lease and utiltiies and wages and so on, but over and above that, we are turning the money back to the community. We want

to donate to the fire departments, the new Saskatchewan Children’s Hospital, STARS air ambulance and the Warman Mennonite Special Care Home. Those are all good causes and they are areas where funds are always needed.” Bill Peters said his family has wanted to run a thrift store for many years and, when the opportunity came along, they decided to invest. “It took a lot of work to clean the place up and remodel the whole interior,” he said. “It was a garage for many years and you don’t get it in shape over a weekend. We had to do a lot of re-wiring and cleaning and renovating.” Elaine Peters said business has been brisk and they are always seeking out inventory. “We are looking for all kinds of items,” she said. “Furniture, clothing, toys. You name it.” Clint Friesen of the Osler Fire Department said the contribution will go toward the Osler Fire Hall fund. “We got the shovels in the ground a few weeks ago and

it’s starting to come together. We’re pretty excited about this building because it’s badly needed.” The Warman Fire Department will use the funds for education and fire prevention programs. “We are going to do a ‘Learn not to burn’ initiative for every child in the City of Warman between the ages of Kindergarten and Grade 3,” said Russ Austin, deputy fire chief. “We have a package of materials that we will provide to the schools as well as teacher lesson plans that focus on fire safety, particularly in the kitchen and around the house.” Austin said the program will reach about 600 children. “We’ll also have our regular edcuation program during Fire Prevention Week in early October,” he added. “That’s where we have pre-school tours and kindergarten tours through our fire hall.” The Warman Fire Department is also planning a community open house at the fire hall during Fire Prevention Week.

Crippen Berger, outlined the contents of the report to OCWA representatives at the August 27 meeting, held in the RM of Corman Park council chambers.

FLOODING SCENARIOS

Hilderman said the engineering study looked at two major surface runoff situations: a 1 in 5-year snowmelt accumulation, and a 1 in 24hour rainfall event. The objective of the engineering design was to drain the maximum amount of excess surface water in a two-day period. The study opted to recommend plans for dealing with the severe rainfall scenario because that involved the maximum amount of water that had to be drained in the shortest period of time. “For the purpose of ditch and culvert design, the peak flow from the overall catchment area ends up being the critical factor in determining the capacity of the system,” said Hilderman.

Five overall options were considered, said Hilderman, and in the end, “Option 2” was recommended. This option includes an east-west drainage ditch that would run from the area west of Osler, through that community, and down the Blumenheim Road to a natural outlet into the South Saskatchewan River. It also includes a north-south drainage ditch in the vicinity of Range Road 3052. This drain captures a portion of the water flow from the north and west. Some of this flow, which would normally go through Opimihaw Creek at Wanuskewin, would be diverted using an alternate discharge point.

At the midway point of the voting period for the Richardson Pioneer Rider Nation Community Celebration the battle for $100,000 and provincial bragging rights is heating up with over 55,000 votes made for the eight short-listed communities. And Dalmeny is in first place. The proposal was made by the Dalmeny Spray and Play Intergenerational Park Project committee as part of their fundraising initiatives for a new playground and spray park for the community and surrounding areas. “I can’t even tell you how excited we are to be in first place at the halfway point. But we know every community is going to up the ante to win this prize. We’ve been working hard to get the word out and solicit votes for our park, and we’re going to work even harder until the end of the voting period. We’ve been told it’s a tight race,” states Crystal Benoit, chair of the Dalmeny Spray and Play Committee. “The committee has hit the pavement doing a door-todoor blitz in Dalmeny, we have posters and signs hanging up anywhere and everywhere we can, and have been running various campaigns via Facebook with contests to win Fall Family Festival passes and Saskatchewan Roughrider home game tickets. As we’re the closest community to Saskatoon in the competition, we’re also teaming up with Magic 98.3 to run a contest over the radio for Rider tickets in exchange for votes.” Voting continues through Wednesday, September 11.

Harvest for Hunger breaks world record for vintage threshing bee Thousands watch as 41 threshing machines work on the same field Submitted by

EHTEL QUIRING

“Chatting with Ethel”

August 24, 2013. What a day at Langenburg, Saskatchewan. And the weather didn’t throw any curve balls. A perfect day with sunshine and a light breeze. What was this day filled with activity all about? Why so much excitement in the air, and on the faces of so many pioneers and those transporting their antique threshing machines, tractors and steam engines to the field? Ask, and you shall be answered. Organizers of the Olde Tyme “Harvest for Hunger” registered with the World Record Academy to officially establish a world record for the number of antique threshing machines operating simultaneously. The world record to beat was from a group in Wisconsin that had 29 antique threshing machines operating simultaneously in 2008. At Langenburg, the 41 antique threshing machines operating simultaneously was slated for 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. As the machines were running each of the operators had their crew of 4 to 5 men on top of the stack of wheat bundles waiting for the action to start. Then with a blast from the steam engine whistle, the vintage tractors roared, and with pitch forks in hand, the crews fed the bundles into the thresher with the blower pipes spewing out the straw. What a sight to behold! It was a special weekend indeed for my husband Sam and myself to witness this historic event, and to support our son Murl and his friends. What a privilege to be a part of this Olde Tyme Harvest wth Murl’s 1929 L.A. Case

A row of 41 antique threshing machines, roughly a quarter of a mile long, are ready to estabish a world record.

The day was complete wth entertainment involving two of Saskatchewan’s country music winners: Cody Prevost and Jess Moskaluke; food booths, trade show, children’s activities, horse and wagon rides, and bindering demonstration. Here’s a tip of the hat to the organizers and vendors who planned and worked hard for two years to make this dream come true! The proceeds of the field, charitable, and personal donations will be donated to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. With 6,500 people in attendance, it was a very special time as friends, families and communities came together to create a once in a lifetime event showcasing the region’s rich agricultural heritage while helping those around the world who are less fortunate.

Unionized workers’ wages higher on average: CLC Researchers at the Canadian Labour Congress have found that on average unionized workers in Saskatoon earn $5.23 an hour more than do non-union workers and that benefits the entire community, says CLC President Ken Georgetti. “That extra money in the pockets of unionized employees translates into an added $9.3 million every week paid into the local economy,” says Georgetti. “We know that unionized workers who earn a middle class, family-supporting wage spend their pay cheques close to home and that supports local businesses and the community.” CLC researchers surveyed wages in 30 Canadian communities and found that centres with more union members support a richer mix of businesses and services. “But it doesn’t end there,” says Georgetti. “Many of the things first won by unions are enjoyed by all workers today, including minimum wages, overtime pay, workplace safety standards, vacation pay and parental leaves.” Georgetti says that unions also advocate at local, provincial and federal government

levels for things such as public health care and an improved Canada Pension Plan. “We believe in the old saying that what we want for ourselves we seek for all.” Georgetti adds that being in a union is especially important for women and younger workers. In Saskatchewan, women who belong to unions earn an average of $7.37 an hour more than do women in nonunionized workplaces. In Canada as a whole, young workers aged 15 to 29 earn an additional $5.53 an hour if they belong to unions. “We in the labour movement take satisfaction in knowing that we have helped to build a stronger and more secure economy for everyone in Saskatoon and all of Saskatchewan,” says Georgetti. “When unions stand up for fairness, they raise the bar for everyone.” The Canadian Labour Congress, the national voice of the labour movement, represents 3.3 million Canadian workers. The CLC brings together Canada’s national and international unions along with the provincial and territorial federations of labour and 130 district labour councils.

Safety training scenario benefits area firefighters, local agribusiness By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

A joint safety training exercise involving the Warman and Martensville fire departments at the Richardson Pioneer grain terminal on Highway 11 last week was “very beneficial” for the company, according to Ed Petit, Plant Manager at the facility. “It was a very worthwhile training session,” said Petit in an interview on Friday, August 30. “There’s nothing like a hands-on, real-world scenario to show where we can improve our emergency response plan.” Petit said the grain company has an internal requirement to perform mock safety drills on a regular basis to ensure everyone knows how to respond in an emergency. But, it’s one thing to do a “tabletop” scenario and quite another to actually set up a real-life situation, he added. The safety training session took place within the massive grain terminal facility during the evening of Thursday, August 29. Personnel from both the Warman and Martensville Fire Departments were involved in the training exercise. Kurt Dyck, Martensville Fire Chief, said there were actually two scenarios. “One was where we brought up a victim from a lower level and got him out of the building and into an ambulance, and the other involved a patient who suffered a heart attack on an upper floor,” he said. Dyck said the high-altitude rope drills that the Martensville Fire Department had been training in over the past year were put to good use during the emergency simulation. “It was great to have an actual drill at an industrial site,” said Dyck. “We’ve been mostly training in our hall, so to get out and actually utilize those skills in a place where we may possible get a rescue call some day, was good training.” Dyck noted the fire department personnel also benefited by becoming familiar with

the layout of the grain terminal. Russ Austin, Deputy Fire Chief for the Warman Fire Department, said it’s important to have joint-training exercises, not just between fire departments, but also with area businesses. “It makes things as realistic as possible for everyone involved,” he said. “This was our first look at that particular building, and when you respond to any emergency situation, you need to figure out what you can and cannot do within the confines of the space you have to work within.” Petit said the Winnipegbased company extended the invitation to the local fire departments, and he added there are likely to be similar safety training exercises in the future. “Our biggest concern would be if someone is incapacitated at a level we can’t get to,”

 

   

The Warman and Martensville Fire Departments recently conducted a joint safety training exercise with employees of the Richardson Pioneer grain terminal on Highway 11 south of Warman said Petit. “If it’s ground level, that’s fairly straightforward, but if they’re 20 feet down in a boot or up on a higher level where we can’t get at them, we need to call on a rescue team with specialized skills.”

Construction of fertilizer distribution facility on track By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

Construction of a massive concrete fertilizer distribution shed at the Richardson Pioneer grain terminal north of Saskatoon is on track to be completed in November, according to Ed Petit, Plant Manager at the grain handling and agribusiness supply facility. The new building will triple the terminal’s fertilizer storage capacity from the current 10,000 tonnes to 30,000 tonnes. Construction of the storage facility began last April, and the majority of the work has involved preparation of the ground at the site, said Petit. “The structure will consist of a concrete floor and walls, with a Coverall-type of roof,” he said. “The ground work was extensive. We now have a good base on the site, and a lot of time and effort was put into the pad. With thirty thousand tonnes of fertilizer in there, you don’t want it moving.” Petit said the recent acquisition of assets from Viterra, as well as the growth of the company, has meant an increased volume of fertilizer being sold through the facility. The market area is likely to increase as a result of the expansion. “We expect it could extend all the way from Imperial to Crooked River,” he said.

Conservatives will survive new boundaries

Another unfair situation for taxpayers BY COLIN CRAIG – Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation

COMMENTARY

They say that life isn’t fair. Sometimes you just have to grit your teeth and bear it when someone steals a parking spot you had been waiting for. Or perhaps when a computer glitch causes you to lose out on that Chia Pet you were bidding for on eBay. And then there are things that are really unfair, but you can change. Right now taxpayers have to pay a fortune for the pension plan provincial judges in Saskatchewan receive. It is beyond anything most would consider reasonable. But as we’ve seen with plenty of other examples, if enough taxpayers speak out and put pressure on politicians to do something, they’ll take action. Consider how the judges’ pension plan works. Right now provincial judges put in just five per cent of their salary into the pension plan each year. So a judge making $238,943 per year (upper limit as of 2011) would put in $11,947 per year. Based on the payout formula, if that judge retired after serving for 25 years they would receive at least $111,507 every year until they die. Think about that for a second. You put in $11,947 per year (it’s actually less during a judge’s earlier working years) while you’re working and then get at least $111,507 every year after you retire? It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize something is up. After all, making payments of $11,947 per year into a fund only generates so much interest. Where is all the extra money coming from? You guessed it, your pocket. Consider that there are 55 retired judges drawing payments from the pension plan right now and 51 that are working and paying into it. The plan has about $24 million saved up. The government doesn’t put money into the fund each year, it just cuts a cheque for whatever the fund needs in order to pay its members; that’s known as a “pay as you go” plan. However, even if the government had put $1 into the fund every time a judge put in $1 the pension plan, the fund would “only” have about $48 million. We say “only” because the plan’s annual report estimates it owes $159 million to former and current employees. In fact, the forecast for how much the fund is short is up a whopping 52 per cent since 2010 ($89 million.) In other words, it’s spiraling out of control. Again, the difference between the $24 million the fund has and the $159 million it has to pay out will all fall on the taxpayers’ shoulders. Given the fund’s promises to judges are way too generous, the question is - what is the government doing about the situation? Nothing apparently. Pension reform doesn’t seem to be the government’s agenda. What the government needs to do is take a page out of former NDP Premier Allan Blakeney’s book and start putting new judges hired by the government in a far less costly pension plans known as a “defined contribution” plan. Blakeney started doing this with most provincial government employees in the 1970s in order to protect taxpayers from big bills in the future. While Blakeney’s government was successful at putting most new government employees in less costly pension plans, a few divisions of government employees never made the switch. Judges and most health care employees are a couple examples. The Canadian Taxpayers Federation, a donation-based taxpayers’ watchdog organization, has called on the Wall government to finish what Premier Blakeney started and stop putting new employees in expensive employee plans like the ones judges enjoy. Now it’s time for you to be the ‘judge’ - keep putting new government hires in expensive pension plans that are risky for the taxpayer or something more sustainable and fair for the taxpayer? When you’ve reached a verdict, be sure to let the government know.

Now that we’re past the fight over the 14 new federal electoral boundaries, let us examine a few Saskatchewan political realities.

MURRAY MANDRYK

Provincial Politics

The first political reality is the likelihood we will elect a majority of Conservative MPs, anyway. For their partisan interests, Conservative MPs tried to convince you of the inherent unfairness of city MPs representing city folk and rural MPs representing rural folk. The reality, however, is that it likely won’t hurt the Conservative chances all that much. Yes, rural ridings will get bigger because we will no longer see four seats in each Regina and Saskatoon containing large swaths of rural Saskatchewan. And, yes, there are always questionable decisions, like a putting Moose Jaw and Lanigan or Lloydminster and Rosthern in the same seat. But if anyone thinks for a moment that these were ever what sincerely motivated Conservatives’ complaints about

ince for 46 of the past 69 years, provincially. But only once has the majority of MPs been NDP (1988) and only on two additional occasions in the past 50 years has the majority of Saskatchewan MPs been a combination of NDP and Liberal. This likely won’t change under these new boundaries still dominated by rural seats. Under the new Saskatchewan federal boundaries, there will be seven seats – Moose Jaw-Lake Centre-Lanigan, Cypress Hills-Grasslands, Humboldt-Warman-Martensville-Rosetown, Lloydminster-Battlefords-Rosthern, Prince Albert, Souris-Moose Mountain and Yorkton-Melville – considered as rural. An eighth seat, Desnethé-Missinippi-Churchill River is really a northern seat. Speaker Andrew Scheer’s ReginaQu’Appelle will be the only truly split urban-rural seat. And five other seats will be seen as urban seats, (although Saskatoon-Grasslands also has a large rural and acreage component). Also to the advantage of Conservatives is the fact that 10 of their current 13 incumbent MPs are likely to run (or at least, only Maurice Vellacott, Ray Boughen and

Ed Kormanicki have indicated plans to retire). That will give the Conservatives name recognition in both urban and rural seats. (Tom Lukiwski will run in Moose Jaw-Lake Centre-Lanigan. Kelly Block says she will seek the nomination in Humboldt-WarmanMartensville-Rosetown.) Add to the equation the likelihood of the NDP and Liberals splitting the left-of-centre vote and that neither Thomas Mulcair nor Justin Trudeau have all that much appeal in Saskatchewan and one suspects we will still see 10 to 12 Conservative MPs from Saskatchewan. However, there is one final Saskatchewan political reality worthy of consideration. Until the first Harper minority government election in 2006, there were only three previous occasions when Saskatchewan sent the majority of its MPs to government side of the House of Commons. This is largely because of number of the Liberal governments elected. So if Conservatives aren’t re-elected as government, Saskatchewan may return to its old political reality of having more opposition than government representation.

the new boundaries, think again. For those Conservatives who questioned the ethics of the two boundaries commissioners unwilling to bend to their wishes of split urban-rural ridings, this was always about getting as many Conservatives elected as possible. And the best way for Conservatives to achieve the maximum MPs from this province is to dilute the NDP/ Liberal vote concentrated in the cities with rural votes. The political reality in a largely rural province like Saskatchewan is that the more rural you are, the more likely it is that you will vote Conservative. It is for this reason that in each federal generally election of the past 50-plus years, at least half the MPs Saskatchewan has sent to Ottawa were “conservatives”. (Although, whether they were Progressive Conservatives, Reformers, Canadian Alliance or the Stephen Harper brand of Conservatives has sometimes varied.) You read that correctly, folks. Since the 1950s, only in the 1968, 1988 and 1993 elections did Saskatchewan send a majority of “non-conservatives” to Ottawa. This might have been a CCF-NDP prov-

Floodwaters recede in RM but more work must be done By EMMA HENLEY emma@ccgazette.ca

Floodwaters are receding in an area two miles east of Highway 12 and south of Neuhorst all the way to Martensville, according to Bas Froese-Kooijenga, council member for Division 6 of the RM of Corman Park. “It’s not a crisis situation anymore, where everyone is in a panic, but the water is still moving through the area; however, it is more manageable now.” The area that has been hit hardest was the narrow strip south of Neuhorst. Water dammed by Range Road 3052 and Highway 305 as well as new areas that had never faced flooding before. “We’ve been having people calling in saying ‘We’ve got all this water and we don’t know where it’s coming from,’” said Froese-Kooijenga. “To be honest, I think it’s just because we have a whole lot of water. The ground is just saturated and it’s not draining away quickly enough.” With the past few years of accumulative rain, it’s no surprise that low-lying areas are flooded. Along with the rain, the snowmelt in the spring does not help the situation. “By August, you’d think it would have stopped, but the water is still moving through

the area,” said Froese Kooijenga. “Something tells me it would move faster if we had adequate drainage. If the drainage was good, the water would be gone by now, and that’s not the case.” Having seen aerial pictures, Froese-Kooijenga confirms the sheer amount of water in the area. Across Highway 12, he said, what was once an area with some flooding has become a veritable lake. Detailing roughly whereabouts the water comes from, it moves under Highway 12 to become part of the bigger issue on the other side. One mile south on the same side of Highway 12, water collects from the west —the area around Dalmeny. “We’ve had people say ‘Oh, they must be doing something somewhere because we’re getting all this water’ and that might very well be,” explained Froese-Kooijenga. “It’s hard to know what people do on their land and it’s not unlikely that we’ve had people try to do things to alleviate their problems, such as with pumping, and it all leads to more and more water being diverted to different areas.” The drainage issues may also be attributed to a lack of forethought. “When the flooding first started, the thought was ‘let’s

put a culvert here,’ and there wasn’t a lot of thought put into it because there was no time. It was just a panic. Now, however, we can’t keep up with all the water because it just keeps coming.” The RM has been installing culverts where they can and trying to come up with solutions for the flooding of today and the flooding of the future. So far, Highway 305 to Martensville has been upgraded. The ditch has been given a bigger culvert that can handle a lot more water. Public works has also done some work south of Range Road 3052 to help accommodate more water. “It’s something we need to work on,” said Froese Kooijenga. “Right now, the rain isn’t as bad as it was, but we still have a good momentum going. A lot of people want to sort this out. It’s all very well and good to hope for better weather, but when it comes, people will be more complacent and forget what it’s like when the weather isn’t so good.” He also said he thinks it would be within the Ministry of Highways’ interests to team up with the RM of Corman Park in order to get the water moving quickly, and implement proper

drainage. The Water Security Agency (WSA) has had a hand in telling the highways ministry that they have to start upgrading more culverts. “Highways is hoping to upgrade Highway 305, but work is at a standstill because they’re waiting for all the water to go away. And Warman is looking to do some development work over the next 20 years,” said Froese-Kooijenga. “The RM wants to look after its ratepayers and they want to continue developing. Since we all want the same thing – moving the water out of the area – I think it would be better if we all worked together to tackle the issue.” Froese-Kooijenga remains hopeful that the RM council will be able to continue their efforts to alleviate the problems caused by flooding and to figure out how to better reduce them.

Every athlete’s dream World Series winning home run earned Joe Carter a lasting place in nation’s heart By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

When Toronto Blue Jays’ first baseman Joe Carter stepped to the plate in the bottom of the 9th inning during Game 6 of the World Series on October 23, 1993, he had a feeling something good was going to happen. “Something great” would be a better description. Carter hit a three-run home run to win the game for Toronto and give the Blue Jays their second World Series title in as many years. “It’s a home run that I’ve been milking for 20 years,” said a giggling Carter. “I’m pretty sure I can milk it for another 20.” Carter was the keynote speaker at the 7th annual Warman Sport and Cultural Village (WSCV) sports celebrity fundraising dinner, held at the Legends Centre in Warman on August 29. Carter was joined on the podium by NHL legend Chris Pronger, Montreal Canadiens’ all-star defenseman P.K. Subban, Boston Bruins’ goaltender Malcolm Subban and former Saskatchewan Roughrider greats Lance Frazier and Wes Cates. Sports broadcaster Drew Remenda returned as emcee for the event. The sold-out dinner collected thousands of dollars toward the construction of a second indoor ice surface at the Legends Centre. Carter had high praise for the organizers of the event, not-

ing the Legends Centre is needed to help young people stay active and involved. “You have a great facility here in Warman,” said Carter. “This gives the kids an opportunity to be successful. And we need to encourage kids to be successful becasue they are the future.” Carter said he knew from the time he was seven-yearsold that he wanted to be a professional baseball player. His father, he recalled, enouraged him while he was growing up, even though the large family was not wealthy. Carter said hitting that home run to win the World Series is a dream of every youngster. The big difference, he said, is that he actually got to live the dream. “The epitome of being a professional athlete is to find yourself in a situation like that,” he said. “Where you have the chance to win it for your teammates, for the city of Toronto and the country of Canada. I remember thinking ‘this is fun’. This is what baseball is all about. This is what I’ve been living for in this game, to be in this situation with the whole country watching.” Carter said time seemed to slow down just before the homerun pitch. “I could see everything so clearly. I could see every stitch on that ball.” Carter added he was proud to have his family in the stands. But, it wasn’t until last year after his father had passed away, that a fan who happened to be

at that game gave Carter a very special photo. “This guy was sitting in the stands near my parents,” said Carter. “He turned around and snapped a picture of my dad, and he had a big smile on his face - like any proud parent would. I had never seen that picture before. It’s something I’ll always treasure.” Carter said while it’s a good thing to strive to be a great athlete, it’s more important to be a great teammate. “You can only go as far as your teammates take you,” he said. “If you are a great teammate you make others around you better. It’s the same in everything you do - whether it’s sports or in the workforce. Bring energy and excitement to whatever you do.” Carter said he is disappointed with the state of professional baseball today because of the prevalence of steroids and other perfomance enhancing drugs. “You can’t take short cuts,” he said. “The ones who take the shortcuts are the ones who will be out of the game real soon. It takes dedication and hard work in everything you do to be successful. You have to put the time in.” The live auction brought in a total of $17,300 in the sale of autographed jerseys. Carter’s Blue Jays’ jersey went for $6,100 while Pronger’s fetched $3,300. P.K. Subban’s jersey sold for $2,700, Wes Cates’ went for $2,400, Lance Frazier’s was auctioned for $2,000, and Malcolm Subban’s sold for $800.

Petition for Catholic School Board in Warman launched By EMMA HENLEY emma@ccgazette.ca

Catholic families in Warman who desire a faith-based education for their children may have a Catholic school division in the area of Warman within the not-too-distant future. Josie Hodgkinson, a Warman resident, is intent on following in the footsteps of the City of Martensville and bringing the City of Warman into an amalgamation with Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools. According to Hodgkinson, this is only a short-term goal. “We are hoping that in the short term our children may

be able to attend Catholic schools in Saskatoon,” she said in a press release. “If the Catholic ratepayers of Warman agree to forming a Catholic School Division we would then approach Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools to access free transportation for any students who wish to attend a Catholic school in Saskatoon.” On August 28, a meeting at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish, attended by Hodgkinson and other Warman residents, was held to establish what is required to bring a Catholic School Division to fruition in the area. “The Education Act requires that we contact the rate pay-

ers within the Warman attendance area to determine the percentage of Catholics who reside in the area,” explained Hodgkinson. “We must provide evidence that Catholic ratepayers are a minority, in order to be eligible to form a Separate School Board. This information must be sent to the Minister of Education along with our petition to form a new Catholic Separate School Division before November 1, 2013.” Hodgkinson estimates that there are 85 Catholic families in the area that must be accounted for, but this number is not set in stone. After the petition is sent to Ken Loehndorf, Execu-

tive Director at the Saskatchewan Catholic School Boards, the process of creating a new school division begins. Potentially by June, 2014, Catholic ratepayers will be voting on whether or not a Catholic School Division is wanted in the Warman area. There will be a public information meeting regarding the possibility of forming a Catholic School Division in Warman on Wednesday, September 18, 2013, at 7:00 p.m. in the Brian King Center, Meeting Room 202, on 8th Avenue N, Warman. For more information, contact Josie Hodgkinson at (306) 382-3280 or josieh@ sasktel.net.

Ultimate Cheerleading club expects a busy year By EMMA HENLEY emma@ccgazette.ca

A construction crew uses a crane to install a stealth cell phone tower on SaskTel property on Main Street in Warman on Wednesday, August 28. The tower replaces an older structure, and the fully-enclosed cell phone tower will increase the capacity for cell phone users in Warman.

Registration is now open for Warman Ultimate Cheerleading (WUC), which began its fifth year back in July. Anyone wishing to sign up does not have to live Warman; WUC has approximately 200 athletes all hailing from Saskatoon, Martensville, Osler, Langham, Dalmeny, Hague, and even Prince Albert. Throughout the summer, tumbling, stretching, and conditioning classes were offered by the WUC and held at the Legends Centre. “Athletes could come along and take a class once a week for five weeks to practice tumbling, or do some strengthening and conditioning,” said Leslie Stevenson, Head Coach of the WUC, in an interview on August 27.

Earlier in August, the Legends Centre also hosted the WUC’s third annual training camp. During a five-day camp from August 12-16, kids five and under, eight and under, and 11 and under participated in activities that included cheerleading techniques, crafts, games, and water fights. On August 17 and 18, kids 14 and under, and 18 and under also participated. During this week, Sonja Boc, a Team Canada World Coach, was brought in to train the Elite Peridot and Elite Opal teams in preparation for the competitive season ahead. The Senior cheerleading teams will be heading to Montreal in April to compete in the Cheerleading Nationals. The Elite Peridot Team will

head to the Nationals in the United States in early 2014, heading anywhere from Tampa Bay, Florida, to Oregon. Stevenson said WUC is now offering day classes for parents and their young children, as well as an open gym during the day, and tumbling classes for children five and under.

“Tumbling is essentially floor gymnastics. Children who want to learn things like that and what to attend these tumbling classes do not necessarily need to be part of the cheer program. They don’t need to get into cheerleading to learn tumbling,” assured Stevenson.

The Prairie Players will be bringing the production of Peter Pan to the Langham Affinity Hall next month. Pantomime is a form of musical comedy theatre developed in the United Kingdom, usually performed at Christmas time for a family audience. They are thoroughly enjoyable spectacles roughly based on a well-known children’s story peppered with songs, crossdressing actors, audience participation, and slapstick comedy. Gillian Pearson, Director, confirmed in an interview Thursday 22 that all these aspects of pantomime theatre and more will be present in Peter Pan. “I don’t think Canadians quite understand that the main role, while male, is typically played by a girl,” said Pearson. “Alicia Rice, from Hafford, is playing Peter Pan. She also played Annie in Blaine Lake last year, but she was the best one for the role.” Unfortunately, as the Langham Affinity Hall is not equipped to hoist actors into the air to simulate flying, the Prairie Players have had to adapt in order to bring the magic of Peter’s gift of flight to the stage. Pearson said that she thinks the children in the audience will be convinced. The foyer to the community hall has not been excluded in this magical makeover. Pearson and others have worked very hard to bring Neverland off the stage and into the reception area as well. Audience participation is welcomed, even expected. Pearson recalled during the Prairie

Player’s summer performance of Aladdin. “We had these huge boards telling people what to say and when to say it, but in the end, they didn’t need them,” she said, chuckling. “They were booing when the baddie came on stage and got really into yelling ‘He’s behind you!’ and all that. “Pantomime is great for children,” she continued. “They’re not expected to sit quietly in their seats as they would in a theatre. They’re allowed to shout things out, and they don’t strictly have to remain in their seats. It’s a lot of fun.” As is typical in pantomime, anachronistic elements show up in the classical story, such as Tinkerbell’s punk makeover and a “hysterical” pirate rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. This particular version of Peter Pan does contain references to the Disney version that many love and are familiar with, but ultimately follows the original Peter Pan by author J. M. Barrie. “In this version, it’s clear that Peter and Wendy have deeper feeling for each other,” Pearson explained. “They have quite a sad song at the end when they say goodbye.” The production cast is comprised of people aged 6 to 50. “The kids in the production are mostly local,” said Pearson. “They’re all incredibly talented and they’ve grow in confidence. Many of them have never been on stage before.” Pearson revealed that last night’s rehearsal yielded a group that was full of life and energy, and was very enthusiastic. Peter Pan runs in September 27-28, p.m., and the 29 at p.m.. Admission is $15 for adults, and $5 for children.

The cast of the Prairie Players production of “Peter Pan” includes (Back row, l-r): Dexter Deagau, Orville Johnson, Liz Mabbs. (Centre row): Bonnie Thiessen Rouffosse, Kennedy Rouffosse, Shawna Langer, Chloe Nixon, Katie LaRoche, Alex King. (Front row): Joshua Dolan, Caris King, Shaylar Tarasoff, Paula King, Gillian Pearson, Chelsey Brouder, Olivia Pearson, Ava Johson. Not pictured are Marina Rice, Alicia Rice and Jessica Rice.

A trip to the Hague Museum can cap off summer By EMMA HENLEY emma@ccgazette.ca

Open from the May long weekend to Thanksgiving in October, Friday through to Monday, the Hague Museum welcomes some 1,000 visitors a year. They come from across Canada — a fact that the visitor book may attest to — from the United States, and even, occasionally, from Europe. When I went to visit on Friday 2, August, the couple before me hailed from Ontario. Frank Doerksen, member of the Hague Board of Museums, states that one visitor had come all the way from Mexico. The museum, opened in 2000, owes much of its content to Tobie Unruh who, having no heir, left his estate to the Museum Board of Hague, giving them enough money to build the current museum. A hefty collection of items found on his estate fills up several rooms in the museum, each centered on a common theme. One of the first contains

a chair from a barbers shop, dating roughly from the 1940’s. It is surrounded by glass cases filled with various cans and tins that once held commercial merchandise and still bear the stylistic designs of a similar time period. In another room, cream-andmilk separators stand beside butter-churns of different makes and models. Some are no more sophisticated than the hollow barrel with a paddle for stirring. Others involve mechanisms that allow a simple turn of a hand-crank that In yet other rooms, there are cases of clothing from time periods dating back to the late 1800’s. A red serge RCMP uniform donated by a retired officer sits besides a wedding dress from the 1920’s. Other items include medical equipment, children’s toys, sports jerseys, and even, quite amusingly, the original door of a police station holding cell for the drunk and dispossessed. The collection is immense, and traversing the whole museum takes a lot longer than one

would expect. The building appears deceptively small to the eye, but is vastly larger on the inside. It’s a veritable time capsule that reaches further back than the establishment of Hague, but to the First Nations before Europeans set foot in the land that is now Canada. Unruh, the generous late benefactor of the museum, collected arrow heads he found in his own fields, as well as stone axe heads, which are now on display. An estimated few hundred arrow heads, these remnants of a rich First Nations’ history in Saskatchewan, are presented as several beautiful spiral murals that cover the wall of one room in the museum. My favourite room has to be that containing the hand-painted maps donated to the museum by Hague resident, J. E. Friesen, depicting Hague at various points in the early 1900’s. Friesen has also donated a few beautiful paintings portraying life as it was in those times, whose scenes show a bustling crowd about the railroad, the vital ar-

tery of commerce and livelihood out on the prairies. After the tour inside, visitors are welcome to peruse outside, where several buildings house more historical artifacts. One building in particular is, in fact, an old schoolhouse from 1919, which was moved to the museum grounds following 1997. Inside, the building is set up as an old-fashioned classroom. A swathe of maps and other education posters, plaster the walls, cocooning a cluster of desks, while photos of past students stand watch over all. Much of the room’s content originally belonged to the schoolhouse; only a few items have found a home there after the building was moved. An old house-barn is filled to bursting with old-fashioned farm equipment, a multitude of license plates from over the years, and some fairly sexy old cars. The Hague Museum makes for a rewarding weekend expedition. With so many things to look at, it’s an expedition that takes a lot longer than expected, but is entirely worth it.

PSSD schools welcome students back to class By TERRY PUGH

tpugh@ccgazette.ca

Students in the Prairie Spirit School Division (PSSD) returned to class this week, marking the beginning of a new school year. For some, like the inaugural classes at Warman Middle School, it’s a whole new adventure in a brand new facility. For others, including students at Osler School, it’s the next best thing to a new school. A top-to-bottom renovation project over the summer has really spruced up the K-8 elementary school, according to Osler School Principal Audrey Kampen. The teachers and support staff couldn’t be happier with the result. “It looks great,” said Kampen at an opening day assembly on Tuesday, September 3. “We really want to give a big thank you to the construction crews from the school division and from Contech Construction.” The roof on the east wing of the Osler School was completely replaced over the past year. According to the PSSD office, the project started last fall and was recently completed. In addition to the roofing project, the flooring was updated and other improvements were made to the facity at the same time. While the renovations are

classified as a maintenance upgrade rather than a major capital project, the improvements included work throughout almost the entire school. The Kindergarten to Grade 3 classrooms, as well as the school office, science lab, washrooms and changerooms, and hallways were renovated.

CAPITAL PROJECTS

The PSSD has several capital projects on the go. IWhile the Warman Middle School welcomed students on opening day, there are still some areas of the school that are not quite completed. The Practical and Applied Arts (PAA) theatre and portable classrooms will not be complete until later in the fall. According to the PSSD office, this delay was anticipated in the planning schedule. The Martensville High School renovation and expansion project is scheduled to go to tender in October, 2013. Stage 1 of Conceptual Analaysis Studies for two new elementary schools, one in Martensville and one in Warman, have been submitted to the provincial government, and are awaiting a response. The PSSD Board has approved a three-year Preventative Maintenance and Renewal Plan (PMR), which has

Teachers, PSSD staff and contractors cut the ribbon to mark grand re-opening of Osler School on Tuesday, September 3 been submitted to the provincial Ministry of Education. The plan includes over 25 smaller proposed projects throughout the school division. One attached relocatable classroom for Venture Heights School in Martenvsille has been scheduled for completion this fall. Valley Manor School in Martensville, meanwhile, will have five relocatables added to the school facility. Two of these were delivered to the school already, but there is still work to do to make them ready for use by students and staff.

What can you do to get rid of wasps? Submitted by

ERL SVENDSEN

Saskatoon Horticultural Society

Wasps are beneficial insects, even the ones that occasionally sting. They are busy parasitizing or otherwise preying on pesky houseflies or soft-bodied like caterpillars, some of which may be munching away in your garden. They are easily recognized: they have 2 translucent pairs of wings, are hairless (unlike bees), black and yellow or black and white, and 12 – 25 mm (0.5 – 1 inch) long depending on caste or type (queen, worker or drone). Of the several species found in the prairies, it is the paper wasps, hornets and yellowjackets (the ones that I call nuisance wasps) that you need to watch out for. As a social insect, they live in colonies ranging from less than a hundred to as many as 5000. You are probably most familiar with the large grey roundish papery hornet nest, suspended in trees, under eaves or from some other sturdy support. But other types of wasps like yellowjackets live underground or in an enclosed location. And yet others build open nests, not enclosed in paper. It is usually this time of year, in August, when they’re a nuisance, as their numbers are peaking and as they are foraging for food. Barbequed meats (protein source) and sugary drinks are sure to attract, as will soft fruits in the garden like strawberries and raspberries. I know it’s hard to do, but avoid swatting at wasps. A squashed wasp releases a scent that will bring their sisters on the scene looking for a fight. They will also defend their nests vigorously if you approach too closely or if they feel threatened. My first wasp sting, only a few years ago, was from a yellow jacket as I blithely sat next to a rock wall sipping a cool drink. It felt like an electric jolt, partly because of the venom itself but also because the yellow jacket, like the paper wasp

and hornet, can sting repeatedly. Fortunately, I only suffered temporary pain plus a small but permanent scar as a reminder. Others may react more dramatically – at worst, suffering a severe allergic shock. Control starts as soon as you spot a developing nest around your home and garden. Underground nests are more of a challenge to spot – watch for sudden appearance of wasps coming from the ground. The entrance is likely surrounded by a small pile of loose soil.There are wasp control products sold in spray cans capable of shooting great distances. Wait until dusk when the wasps will have retired for the evening. Stand as far back as practical and be prepared to make a quick retreat. Aim for the opening and give the nest a good dose. If it is a very large nest, you may have to repeat. If it is a suspended nest, enclose it in a plastic bag (after all activity has ceased) and tie it tightly at the top to prevent any survivors from escaping. Place in freezer overnight to completely kill the colony before disposing in garbage. Imitation wasp nests are reported to deter wasps from establishing a colony nearby. Wasps are territorial animals and won’t encroach into another colony’s territory. If you can’t find a nest but are still bothered by wasps, you can hang up a wasp trap to reduce their numbers. These are available from garden centres. Or a simple one you can make yourself starts with a 1- or 2-liter plastic pop bottle. Cut the top off an inch below the shoulder. Invert the top and insert it into the bottle (remember to remove the lid), lining up the cut surfaces. Take a hole punch and make a couple of holes through both the top and bottom portion on opposite sides of the bottle. Thread a cord through the holes to allow you to hang your trap. Next bait your trap. If hanging up in the spring, use a small piece of raw meat (protein

source; not chicken) with a little bit of water – you might even trap a queen this way. If trapping later in the season, halffill the base with a sweet liquid (sugar + water, juice, stale pop, etc.) plus a squirt of liquid dish soap. Once a wasp enters the trap, they have a difficult time

LK BU

figuring out how to exit. Remember to empty the trap regularly – be wary of live wasps. Bury or flush the dead wasps to avoid attracting their angry vengeful sisters. One final tip: place the trap away from where you, your children or pets spend time.

under pressure

The quarterback for the Martensville Royals looks downfield for an open receiver as two defenders with the Foam Lake Panthers put on the pres-

sure durng a pre-season exhibition game in Martensville last week. The Royals are gearing up to take on the Warman Wolverines this Friday, September 6 in Warman. Game time is 4 p.m. at Neufeld Field.

Riders reach new franchise record with LDC win We are in new, uncharted territory here. It’s strange. It feels great, but strange. The Saskatchewan Roughriders entered the history books this weekend with a 48-25 blowout of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in Labour Day Classic XLVII at Mosaic Stadium. It was the second-highest attendance in Roughrider history at 44,910 and the vast, vast majority of fans were clad in green. More on that in a moment. But more importantly, for the first time in their 103 years, the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ record stands at 8-1. It’s astounding when you

think about it, but then again maybe not so much when you consider this franchise’s bumpy track record and reputation as lovable losers. Not anymore. One of the few blemishes on this season is the fact the Riders have become notorious slow-starters and they allowed the Bombers to score first in Sunday’s game, and Winnipeg even led 18-14 at the halftime break. But was anyone worried? Nah. At halftime in the press box everyone just wondered when the Green & White was going to turn it on and mash the Bombers into the ground.

RIDER INSIDER ROD PEDERSEN

Voice of the Riders Roughriders Radio Network

As it turned out, they didn’t wait long. The Riders scored a touchdown on their first drive of the second half, took the lead and never looked back. As my radio partner Carm Carteri said late in the game, “The Riders just broke the Bombers’ spirit”. They did. In fact they wore them right out. Winnipeg may

be the doormat of the East Division but they came into Regina on this weekend to play. Unfortunately for them, they ran into the strongest team Saskatchewan has ever fielded. The record says so. And the Bombers didn’t have the backing of their own fans in this Labour Day Classic, or at least to the de-

gree they used to. Labour Day weekend is always one of the highlights on the football calendar around here because it’s a mini-Grey Cup atmosphere but that wasn’t the case in 2013. The thousands of Bomber fans who make the trip to Regina annually elected to stay home this time around, reducing the number of blue and gold jerseys in the crowd on Sunday to about a thousand. That makes the attendance of 44,910 all the more astonishing because the stadium was populated by almost entirely Rider fans. Rider Pride is in overdrive and I heard over the weekend the franchise sold

$1.3-million in merchandise in the month of August alone. Clearly the Rider Nation is buying what the Riders are selling. Literally and figuratively. This team is on a collision course with the Grey Cup and the ride has been a thrilla-minute. “I’ve never seen so much talent,” said Rider defensive end John Chick, who had the team’s two sacks in the game. “And maturity. We have some things to work on both on and off the field, but this is a mature bunch. Everybody gets along well and it’s a tight bunch. It’s been a lot of fun.” The question now is: How high can they go?

React Less to Stress For Better Health

15

Fitness Tips

EssentiallyFitness

Taking a moment to regain perspective before reacting to a stressful situation or event might not just make you feel better at the time, it may also contribute to better health over a lifetime. Research done by researchers at Pennsylvania State University, University Park, studied the relationship between people’s reactions to stressful events and their overall health 10 years later.

“Research shows that how you react to what happens in your life today predicts your chronic health conditions 10 years in the future, independent of your current health and your future stress,” says Dr. David Almeida, PhD, Professor of Human Development and Family Studies, in a press release issued by Penn State. “For example, if you have a lot of work to do today and you are really grumpy because of it, then you are more likely to suffer negative health consequences 10 years from now than someone who also has a lot of work to do today, but doesn’t let it bother them.” To learn more about the study, go to: http://live.psu.edu/story/62452 and enjoy!

Salt & You - Part 1 There has been widespread media coverage on the dangers of salt, and recent public health efforts to reduce it in foods. It seems like salt is the bad guy of nutrition. Is salt harmful for people who have hypertension, and can they still consume salt? What about those without high blood pressure? Can you get too little salt in your diet? These questions and many others have arisen. Martica Heaner-who has a doctorate in behavioral nutrition, is an NASM-certified trainer, and is the co-auther of Cross-Training for Dummies (IDG Books 2000)-sheds some light on this subject. Hypertension & Sodium Intake People who are already hypertensive are advised to aim for a low sodium diet by avoiding processed and restaurant foods, and by using less salt. That being said, salt’s effects on blood pressure depends on the individual. “A person with normal kidneys excretes excess sodium and can handle very wide variations”, says Michael Alderman, MD, Professor of Epidemiology, Population Health and Medicine at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City. But, as stated, different people respond to sodium differently. By restricting sodium you can control blood pressure in people who are salt-sensitive. Look forward to the following part of this article in next month’s edition of The Gazette.

Huskies hang on for victory over Rams By WAYNE SHIELS

essenceofsask@gmail.com

The U of S Huskies football team honoured the Canadian Forces during its conference home opener, defeating the University of Regina Rams on Friday, August 30 by a score of 40-33. As part of the event the Huskies wore custom-designed uniforms that combined the camouflage worn by Canadian troops in Afghanistan with the traditional green and white of the U of S. The Huskies were dominant in the first half, building up a 32-7 lead on two majors by receiver Mitch Stevens, a 32-yard TD scamper by RB Dexter Janke and three field goals by Denton Kolodzinski. The Huskies drove deep into Ram territory in the 3rd quarter, but only came away with one point on a missed 20-yard field goal. Regina responded with an eight play 48-yard drive that resulted in a 34-yard field goal. On the Huskies next series, Regina linebacker Connor Ketchum returned a Drew Burko interception to the 4-yard line, leading to the Ram’s second TD and the comeback was on. A recovery of a Huskies end zone fumble on a Regina punt, and a 98-yard catch and run by Rams receiver Kolten Solomon – plus successful

two-point converts on each – resulted in a 33-33 tie early in the fourth quarter. The character of the Huskies showed as they responded with a 72-yard eight play drive and regained the lead as receiver Mitch Stevens scored his third touchdown on a diving catch with 6:44 on the clock. The defence then held strong, not allowing the Rams past midfield before sealing the game with an interception by DB Keegan Arnyek with 22 seconds left. Huskies head coach Brian Towriss felt that some missed plays on special teams was a factor in letting Regina back into the game. On the second half comeback he credited the Rams. “They made some plays. That team never quits. They have big play capability with a couple guys. We gave them life and they took advantage of it.” Towriss added that 40 points should win most games and, while it almost didn’t against the Rams, it gives the team something to work on. “The best thing is we escaped with a win, we got two points and we move on to next week.” The Huskies next take on Manitoba Bisons in Winnipeg before returning home Friday, September 20 to host the University of Alberta Golden Bears. Kickoff is at 7:00.

Opimihaw Creek project funding

CONTINUED FROM PG. 3

ments, including financial commitments, from their respective municipal councils. The top priority for the OCWA is to begin construction of the Osler Primary Drain, which would capture as much as 75 per cent of the excess surface water draining out of the Buzz Slough area northwest of Osler. The estimated cost of this portion of the overall project is $13.9 million, according to the engineering report. However, that price tag could be higher once land acquisition costs are taken into account.

GOING BACK TO COUNCILS

The OCWA is made up of representatives from the RM of Corman Park, City of Warman, City of Martensville, Town of Osler and Town of Dalmeny. The amount of funding each municipality will be obliged to contribute is dependent on the level of benefit that municipality receives from the project. The OCWA representatives agreed to endorse the engineering report, and also to send a copy of the study to the provincial government and the Water Security Agency (WSA). The OCWA is asking the province to kick in additional funds to help pay for the cost of the project. Last year, the Saskatchewan government allocated $1 million toward regional flood control measures, on a cost-sharing basis, with the OCWA member municipalities picking up 25 per cent of the costs. RM of Corman Park Administrator Adam Tittemore said the engineering firm is currently analyzing the costs and benefits to each member municipality of the Osler Drain project, and is expected to report back to the OCWA members by mid-September. The report is also expected to contain projected construction timelines for the project. “Before any project can go ahead, we have to nail down what percentage of the project costs each municipality would be responsible for,” said Tittemore. “Each individual council will have to decide on how much they can commit.” Tittemore added the cost is far above what the OCWA members anticipated, and provincial and possibly federal government funding is definitely needed. “From the RM of Corman Park’s perspective, the cost of this one project alone is the equivalent of two year’s worth of full tax revenue,” he said. “It’s a huge number, and without help from senior levels of government, it will be very difficult to find the money to build it.” The next meeting of the OCWA is set for September 24.

Strong sales in key Asian markets pushed export numbers higher in the first half of the year. Exports to India more than doubled, soaring from $264 million to $553 million, a 109.6 per cent increase. Sales to China were up 16.7 per cent, to $1.5 billion, and exports to Japan jumped 8.4 per cent, to $595 million. Total exports to countries outside the United States rose by 10 per cent. Among the provinces, Saskatchewan recorded the third highest increase in exports in

the first half of 2013, trailing only Nova Scotia and British Columbia, and was well ahead of the national increase of 0.8 per cent. “These numbers are evidence our economy is strong and diversified and testify to the strength of Saskatchewan businesses that are producing goods and services in demand around the world,” Premier Brad Wall said. “Our government’s growth agenda has focused on Asia. We have completed a number of precedent setting trade missions to the region and we are in the midst of planning our next Asian trade mission. Saskatchewan’s future prosperity depends on building strong trade connections to the world’s fastest

growing region.” Oil and gas continued to be the biggest export for Saskatchewan, producing $6.3 billion in sales during the first six months of the year. Potash exports came in second at $3.4 billion, while wheat exports were third at $1.7 billion. “The demand for Saskatchewan goods and services continues to be strong in a cross section of STEP member-related sectors,” Saskatchewan Trade and Export Partnership (STEP) President and Chief Executive Officer Lionel LaBelle said. “The results coming out of Saskatchewan speak to the proven success of provincial exporters and their ability to provide the world with what STEP members produce.”

Pike Lake, Good Spirit get upgrades The Government of Saskatchewan announced this week that it will add two more projects to a busy summer of capital parks investments by funding projects in Pike Lake Provincial Park and Good Spirit Lake Provincial Park worth more than $800,000. “Our parks are attracting more and more visitors every year, so investing in them is crucial,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Kevin Doherty said. “Saskatchewan’s provincial parks received 3.6 million visits in 2012, a nearly six per cent increase over the previous record of 3.4 million visits received in 2011. We want that growth to continue, which is why we will continue investing in parks - it is good for our economy and helps create vibrant lives for the people of Saskatchewan.” The potable water system at Pike Lake Provincial Park

will be upgraded to meet current drinking water standards. The Water Security Agency noted that the underground storage reservoir has deteriorated and needs to be replaced. The new system will ensure current drinking water standards continue to be met. The contract to complete the first phase of the project was awarded to Con-Tech General Contractors Ltd. of Saskatoon. The project’s first phase will involve the construction of a new pump house building, installation of three above-ground water storage tanks and related site developments. A portion of the distribution system will also be upgraded. Phase one will start in the fall and should be complete by the beginning of the 2014 summer camping season. At Good Spirit Lake Provincial Park, the main boat launch will be upgraded. The existing

launch does not meet the needs of its users and will be expanded to provide increased capacity. The contract for a significant portion of the project’s work was awarded to Wudrich Excavating Ltd. of Yorkton. All existing boat launch slabs will be removed and disposed of. The existing turn-around area for the launch will be expanded and the shoreline will be armoured. A sloped grade for two new boat launch lanes will be prepared and two new concrete boat launches will be constructed. Government continues to improve Saskatchewan’s provincial parks and in 2012 committed an additional $10 million over four years to supplement the previously-enhanced provincial parks capital budget. Since 2008, government has invested almost $44 million to improve provincial parks.

Average weekly earnings rise in June Average weekly earnings in June were $952.63, the second highest in the nation and the highest ever for the month of June, according to a report released by Statistics Canada today. Nationally, average weekly earnings were $918.67. Wages were up 4.2 per cent on a year-over-year basis in the province, the highest increase in the nation and well ahead of the 2.6 per cent recorded nationally. Even after inflation is factored in, Saskatchewan had a real wage increase of 2.5 per cent , again the highest increase among the provinces. “Today’s news about record

weekly earnings for June comes at a time when job opportunities are plentiful and the economy is growing,” Economy Minister Bill Boyd said. “With wages outpacing inflation, Saskatchewan will continue to be an attractive destination for job seekers from across the nation.” Gains were also posted on a month-over-month basis in Saskatchewan, up 1.4 per cent over the previous month, the highest increase among the provinces and well ahead of the 0.2 per cent increase in national earnings. Wages increased in a number of industries on a year-over-year

basis including other services such as repair and maintenance up 18.2 per cent; administration and support, waste management and remediation up 12.7 per cent; transportation and warehousing up 10.4 per cent; mining, and oil and gas up 9.0 per cent. “Saskatchewan families continue to earn more, contributing to our thriving economy,” Boyd said. “Workers in our province are enjoying more financial security, which is just another reason Saskatchewan is the best place to work, live and raise a family.”

Province to modernize naming policy for buildings and geographic features Dr. Gordon Barnhart has been appointed to undertake a review of the naming policy for government-owned buildings and the naming of geographic features pursuant to The Heritage Property Act on behalf of the Ministries of Central Services and Parks, Culture and Sport. The intent of the review is to modernize the way government-owned buildings and geographic features are named to ensure it’s done in a consistent, transparent and fair manner. “I’m pleased that Dr. Barnhart has been appointed to review the process related to naming buildings and geographic features,” Central Services Minister Nancy Heppner said. “His expertise and knowledge about Saskatchewan history and government will certainly help to strengthen and modernize the naming process.” The review will examine and clarify the nomination process, the committee structure/functions, and the language in both the policy and legislation. Dr.

Barnhart will provide his report to the Ministries of Central Services and Parks, Culture and Sport later this year. “The naming of buildings, landmarks and other geographic features serves as a way to help tell our provincial story,” Parks, Culture and Sport Min-

ister Kevin Doherty said. “Having a provincial landmark named after someone is a great way to honour their contributions to the province and our history. It is important that the naming processes be reviewed to ensure they serve the needs of Saskatchewan people.”

Warman Cemetery Fall Clean-up The Warman Cemetery Committee is asking for volunteers from the community to come out on Friday, September 20th, starting at 9:30 a.m. to help clean-up the Warman Cemetery. Please bring lawn mowers, blowers, trimmers, rakes and your work gloves. Public Works will be out to assist in the clean-up as well. Our Cemetery is important to the residents of Warman, come on out and show your support in caring forever more for our loved ones who have passed.
