Carbon monoxide alarms essential, says fire chief

By TERRY PUGH Dalmeny First Responders prevented a tragedy at a rural residence last month when they were able to remove three people from a home that had elevated levels of carbon monoxide (CO). It was a close call, according to Dalmeny Fire Chief Rick Elder. “This one caught us offguard,” said Elder in an interview on Thursday, April 21. “What we were called out for and what we ended up with were very different. I give a lot of credit to our crew on the scene who were able to figure out the situation quickly, make the right decisions on the spot and take appropriate action. It saved people’s lives, without a doubt.” The incident occurred in the early morning hours of Wednesday, March 23. Ac-

cording to the Warman RCMP weekly report, three male occupants of a home outside of Dalmeny were removed from the house and taken to hospital showing signs of carbon monoxide poisoning. All the occupants survived and recovered. The 911 call at first appeared to be a routine medical incident, said Elder. A crew of Dalmeny Fire Rescue first responders entered the house and were attending to a male patient, when they noticed that a second occupant of the residence also appeared to be having problems. When a third resident also went down, it became evident very quickly that something out of the ordinary was responsible. “The crew figured it out right away,” said Elder. “They determined it had to be carbon monoxide that CONTINUED ON PAGE 26

Youngster digs fossils, has them cased

By HILARY KLASSEN Derek Neufeld remembers the first fossil he dug up. He thinks it was the rib bone of a pleisiosaur. It was at a dig site near Herschel where the Langham Grade 6 student was given permission to dig with some paleontologists on site. “I thought it was just a rock and they said, ‘No, leave it there. Don’t break it’,” he said. “It was really exciting.” It all came about because Derek’s grandfather was providing accommodation to the paleontologists at his retreat centre. His grandpa had been digging at the site and Derek and his dad were subsequently allowed to join as well. “We were thinking we wouldn’t really find anything or that we might find just one. But I think the first time my dad and I found 20 fossils, and the second time we found about that as well,” said Derek. Derek won the Ervin Wiebe Award at the Langham Elementary School last year, which recognizes students who excel in sportsmanship, leadership and academics. “You

have to be good in all those. I guess I was the best candidate for it and they picked me,” he grinned. With the award comes the opportunity and responsibility to allocate $1,000 toward the betterment of Langham Elementary School. After discussion with his parents and principal, Laura Prefontaine, the decision was made to install a glass fossil display cabinet in the school. The presentation was made at a school assembly on April 20. A few fossils were already prepared for view-

ing in their new home, some that Derek actually excavated. Emily Bamforth was one of the paleontologists at the dig site and spoke at the assembly. “I had been digging with Emily since I was in Grade 4 and so I thought it would be a really cool idea if we got her down here and got some fossils in a case, so the school could keep it,” said Derek. Bamforth asked students, “who thinks Saskatchewan always used to be grassland,’ and then said an ocean once


Derek Neufeld displays his new fossil case at Langham Elementary School covered the entire province. It was called the Western Interior Sea. She mentioned three sites in Saskatchewan that have offered up some amazing fossil discoveries. The Herschel site has been very exciting and they’ve logged thousands of fossils from it. Grasslands National Park is one of Bam-

forth’s favourite sites with a lot of dinosaur fossils. She said the first dinosaur bones found in Canada were found in Saskatchewan. Another major site is at Saskatchewan Landing. It’s on the side of the lake and cow visitations are not uncommon. Bamforth thanked Derek for the fossil case for the

school, which was met with applause. She took time for questions from students and encouraged everyone to vote for the provincial fossil. Derek hopes to dig again this summer if they’ll have him. If so, there’s a good chance he’ll unearth some more treasures to put in the case at school.

Gazette picks up five first-place newspaper awards The best in the community newspaper publishing industry were honoured Friday night, April 22 in Saskatoon and the Clark’s Crossing Gazette was a multiple award winner for the sixth year in a row. Staff reporter/photographer Terry Pugh had two first-place finishes in the categories of Best Education Coverage (Post-Secondary Education) for his story about the closure of Bethany College and for Best Saskatchewan Recreational Story or Series of Stories for his article on wheelchair athletes who operate

sailboats. Reporter/photographer Wayne Shiels also picked up two first-place trophies for Best Sports Photo and was named the province’s Photographer of the Year for the third straight year. Shiels’ photo of the SJHL Showcase game between the Melfort Mustangs and the Notre Dame Hounds caught in the reflection of two players fighting for the puck in the arena’s plexiglass, creating a unique perspective of the game. Terry Jenson, publisher and co-owner of the Gazette, won the prestigious

Best Saskatchewan Hard News Photo for his shot of a Martensville firefighter carrying a dog to safety during a house fire in that city in March of 2015. In addition to capturing first place in five categories, the Gazette staff placed second in four categories and a trio of third place certificates. “A newspaper is a reflection of the region’s people and our team has always provided, and will continue to provide, the absolute best quality newspaper in this area of the province each and every week,” Clark’s

Crossing Gazette publisher Terry Jenson noted following the awards presentation. “We will continue to work hard to provide our readers with the most timely, reliable and accurate information while packaging it in an easy to read product. At the end of the day, readers are the most important judges of our newspaper but being recognized at the provincial level is simply icing on the cake.” In total, journalists from over 80 community newspapers were eligible for the competition’s 33 Premier Awards categories.

Traffic Services head office coming to Martensville By TERRY PUGH With 30 police officers dedicated to patrolling the major highways in central Saskatchewan, it likely doesn’t come as a surprise that tickets for traffic violations are on the increase. And the majority of those tickets are being issued in the “Saskatoon-Martensville-Warman triangle,” according to RCMP Staff Sergeant Howard Nodwell of the Combined Traffic Services Saskatchewan (CTSS) central district unit. The CTSS, made up of 10 members of the Saskatoon Police Service and 20 RCMP officers, has been focusing on three major areas since it was launched as a pilot project in June, 2014. Enforcement is targeted toward catching impaired drivers, distracted drivers and aggressive drivers. “We went from six officers to 30 officers working in the same area, so it wasn’t diffi-

RCMP Staff Sgt. Howard Nodwell cult for our members to find violators,” said Nodwell in a presentation to Martensville City Council on Tuesday, April 19. “There have been over 21,000 tickets issued by this unit, which admittedly covers a very large area. The central district includes 12 RCMP detachment areas stretching all the way from Lanigan in the east to Rosthern in the north, to as far west as the Alberta border and south to Chamberlain.”

RM says permits on par with last year By HILARY KLASSEN Corman Park Director of Planning and Development Rebecca Row presented a summary of development in at their April 18 meeting. The five-year summary is a first, and represents a longer period of data collection. Previous reports would span a three-year period. “In the first quarter of 2016, both our value of construction and our permit fees are up about 15 per cent,” she said. The RM is up by one permit over this time last year. The value of construction in the first quarter sits at $7,951,400, a number Row said is generally on pace with last year, which is “a good sign.” Development values were at their lowest in the comparable period in 2015. In the past five years, construction values reached a high of $20,791,500 in 2014. Following a request by a Saskatoon developer, RM council ratified a recent recommendation of their Planning Committee to add twoacre lots to their zoning bylaw priority list, at their April 18 meeting. Administrator Adam Tittemore said the RM is in the process of revising their OCP and Zoning Bylaw. “However, in the midst of the full review we are also on a priority basis as set by Council, working to make immediate amendments to the current bylaw to facilitate development where changes are required.” Tittemore anticipates a draft bylaw dealing with two-care lots will be brought forward in the next two to three months. The change should appeal to developers who do not require a larger parcel of land, and make development projects more cost-effective. Other adjustments include a recent change to lengthen the approval time for garden suites, Tittemore said. Also under consideration are

changes to accessory building square footage rules as well as home-based business rules.


Renovations at the RCMP office in Martensville should be complete in a few weeks and will be the new headquarters of the Combined Traffic Services - Saskatchewan Central District. The unit has 10 Saskatoon Police Service officers and 20 RCMP officers. But the fastest-growing area with the most traffic, the most congestion, and the busiest highways is the area just north of Saskatoon, which includes Martensville and Warman, said Nodwell. The CTSS unit will be moving into its new headquarters in the Martensville RCMP building in a few weeks, he noted. “Right now, the unit is fullystaffed and we’re in operation. But we’re based in different buildings, with the Saskatoon Police Services officers operating out of their building in Saskatoon and RCMP officers based

in the Saskatoon RCMP detachment building in Saskatoon. “We’re looking forward to moving into the new facility.” Nodwell said the increased presence of police officers in the community and on the highways will have a positive effect on improving commuters’ driving habits. “It’s been a successful project so far,” said Nodwell. “We have a lot of visibility on the highways.” Nodwell said the pilot project was initiated by the provincial government in re-

sponse to the high rate of motor vehicle collisions resulting in serious injuries and fatalities. Saskatchewan has the highest per capita rate of serious collisions in the country. He noted the pilot project is part of a three-pronged initiative, which also includes public education and highway engineering. The police traffic services unit is aimed at enforcement, he said. Martensville City Councilor Bob Blackwell said he welcomes the increased police presence in the region, noting that with an average of 12,000 vehicles per day

commuting to Saskatoon from Martensville on Highway 12, the potential for collisions is extremely high. “The other day I was heading into Saskatoon and was passed by 19 cars, all of them doing about 140 in a 90 kilometer per hour zone,” said Blackwell. “Three of them were on cell phones.” Nodwell said the level of enforcement in the area will be stepped up as the unit becomes better established. Renovations on the RCMP building began last fall. The building also houses the Central Saskatchewan Victims Services office.

Dental hygiene 101 for preschoolers By HILARY KLASSEN What does a dental hygienist do? Some little people found out when they visited a Saskatoon dental clinic recently. About 14 preschoolers from the Country Kids Cooperative Preschool in South Corman Park were rotated in pairs through five stations in a dental office, to learn, and to help reduce anxiety about visits to the dentist. Dental Hygienist Nicole Pingert says preschool teacher, Sima Arnold, approached her about doing a session on dental hygiene for Dental Health Month. Pingert’s son attends the preschool. Pingert was immediately on board, and got permission from her boss to bring the kids into the clinic for a field trip. The kids had a ton of fun, according to Pingert. “They got to press buttons, give each other ‘rides’ on the dental chair, squirt water, and blow air using the equipment,” she said. For one station kids were in gloves, masks and safety glasses. “It was pretty cute!” Kids moved through a “tooth talk” station, then proceeded to the brushing station, the ‘ride the dental chair’ station and finally the ‘be a dental hygienist’ station. They ‘cleaned’ a laminated version of their teacher’s smile, using spray and suction. Kelly Watson, director of the Saskatchewan Dental Hygienist’s Association, did a media prep on the ‘be a dental hygienist’ station. The focus throughout the field trip was on National Dental Hygiene Week. There was also a ‘snack

attack station.’ “We talked about healthy food choices and sugar content of their favorite drinks!” said Pingert. “A 500 millilitre bottle of pop has 17 teaspoons of sugar.” Pingert heard from parents after who said their kid had kept their gloves or mask on for the rest of the day, and one kept calling her parent to her room for her ‘dental appointment.’ Pingert pulled material together from education kits provided by public health both a Saskatoon kit and a Saskatchewan kit. Kids also heard about how oral health is connected to health in the entire body and linked to inflammation in myriad ways. There are compelling reasons for teaching Saskatchewan kids about oral health at a young age. “Saskatchewan is ranked third highest in Canada for dental cavities among children. Only Nunavut and the Northwest Territories are higher. Saskatchewan has got to do something at an earlier age as far as education goes,” said Pingert. She added another statistic that shocked her is that one in five surgeries in children under general anesthetic in Saskatchewan is to fix their teeth. “That’s millions of dollars in health care. As dental professionals it makes us sad because we want better stats in Saskatchewan.” The goal of the field trip was to raise awareness and create a fun, hands-on experience for the kids. “And we definitely managed that,” said Pingert. She had the assistance of seven dental hygienists and says they are excited to do this again.

Hague vocalist ecstatic about role in Mary Poppins

By HILARY KLASSEN Singing is as natural as breathing to Emma Gillingham. It’s so natural that sometimes she doesn’t realize she’s doing it. That fact is all the more amazing when Emma says she doesn’t come from a musical family. Apparently, that talent also made her a natural choice for a role in the Persephone Theatre’s Mary Poppins. Now 12, Emma has been developing vocally since she was little, singing constantly around the house, taking voice lessons, performing at music festivals since age six, winning awards and scholarships, performing at Telemiracle in Regina in 2014, and at the Exhibition in Saskatoon. Now she has another opportunity to showcase her talent, playing Jane Banks in the popular musical, Mary Poppins. “I’m ecstatic,” said Emma. “I’m so excited for opening night.” Vocal training to improve diction is coming in handy for the acting in the role. She’s learned to over-enunciate consonants and she’s also been working on dialect. “I worked with Dorothy Ward on dialect for my British accent.” Ward was a Voice and Dialect Coach at the Stratford Festival for four years, and worked at the Neptune Theatre in Halifax, at Ryerson, and now has a new studio in Rosthern. Emma also did a master class with Debra Buck, the musical director for the Persephone, in


Already gaining interest for her vocals, Emma Gillingham (left) from Blumenthal is expanding her talents with a dual role singing and acting in the musical, Mary Poppins at the Persepshone Rosthern. Emma’s voice teacher Janice Patterson got her the allimportant audition with Debra Buck. There were call backs, additional auditions and then she landed the part. Emma’s favourite line in Mary

Poppins is, “Perhaps she’s killed everyone. Perhaps they’re all dead.” She says this with aplomb in her newly minted British accent. The line refers to Miss Andrews, the “nasty nanny who tries to feed us this terrible stuff,” says

Emma. She and her stage ‘brother’ have been working hard. The process is both exhausting and energizing. Sanne Gillingham, Emma’s mother, says they put in long days and they’re tired after. “But they’re so

pumped! They love it.” The show was presented at a sister theatre in Kamloops in November. That same cast is doing the show here. “They just recast the kids in Saskatoon and try to get them ready to fit in when the whole cast arrives,” said Sanne. The theatre has a supervisor to look after the children. “His name is Jacob, and he is so amazing with the kids,” said Sanne. “As parents we feel good about leaving them there, because of course we’re concerned and want to make sure they’re safe and healthy and looked after. And he makes sure they get breaks and looks after all their needs there.” The children’s parts are double cast so they perform only every second night. Singing is fun for Emma, but she says it’s also calming. Increasingly, she thinks about the possibility of having a professional music career down the road. Emma says while the movie version of Mary Poppins has better parts, the play definitely has more meaning. “It’s a very cool show because there’s so many parts to it and its just looks so awesome when they put it all together.” Sanne took in a dress rehearsal and said, the talent is ‘out of this world.’ “It’s a very energetic musical with an amazing, beautiful story.” Sanne is understandably very proud of Emma and, with all the community support they have felt, suspects all of Hague will be out to see the show.

Prairie Spirit special needs students receive awards By TERRY PUGH Five students from Prairie Spirit School Division (PSSD) were honoured for their academic and personal achievements at a gala award ceremony on Sunday, April 24. The annual “Yes I Can” awards are presented by the Saskatchewan Unit of the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC). The awards were established by the international CEC several years ago to acknowledge the accomplishments of children and youth with intensive supports who have overcome challenges and who have helped raise awareness of the abilities of special needs students. “These awards are very important to the students, their families and their schools,” said Linda BalonSmith, a special education resource teacher at Warman Community Middle School (WCMS). “We’re thrilled to have so many students from our division receiving these honours. There are ten across the province, and half of them are from schools in our division.” The award winners from PSSD include: Allison Florizone of Aberdeen Composite School; Sara Derksen of WCMS; Joe Sipley of WCMS; Caleb Peters of Valley Christian Academy; and Brittany Stewart of Warman High School. The other five award winners are: Courtney Braun of Beechy School; Shay Brovchenko of Neilburg Composite School; Raven Klassen of Meath Park Public School; Paroma Shahnaz of Greystone Heights School

The liquor debate in Saskatchewan is over


By TODD MacKAY Prairie Director, Canadian Taxpayers Federation People don’t need the government’s help to buy or sell a beer. That statement is so obvious it seems strange that it’s been a point of contention for so long, but as of April 4, 2016, that debate is officially over: Saskatchewanians are absolutely fine with privatizing the provincial liquor system.   The Saskatchewan Party was crystal clear about its intention to move steadily toward liquor privatization long before the election – there was no hidden agenda.   First, the government announced it would level the playing field so that off-sales, private stores and government stores would all have the same regulations and the same wholesale prices. The playing field will be level so that private stores and government stores can compete to give customers the best service.   Second, the government will shut down 40 of its least profitable stores and transition them to the private sector.   The only thing more obvious than the Sask. Party’s position was the opposition to it.   The NDP’s platform plank regarding the liquor system came under the heading “stop privatization.” It proposed to put more beer fridges in government stores, sell more local beer and consider setting up government kiosks in grocery stores. But it too was crystal clear: it was the NDP’s priority to keep liquor sales in the hands of government employees. And the Saskatchewan Government Employees’ Union must have spent millions on TV ads and mailouts to amplify that message. The other side was comparatively quiet. Small town hotels that run off-sales didn’t buy ads. Neither did the new private stores. Even the Canadian Taxpayers Federation didn’t say much despite the fact that we’ve spent decades on this issue and pushed the specific recommendations that formed the foundation of the government’s proposed policy. What did SGEU members get out of all of the union dues plowed into the one-sided debate? The government plans to turn the Battlefords liquor store over to the private sector – if the people there are outraged it didn’t show up at the ballot box, as support for the government went up by more than 9 per cent compared to the last election. Surely the riding of Regina Elphinstone-Centre would register more of a backlash because the Broad Street liquor store is on the list, but the NDP support only ticked up by 2 per cent. This specific issue has been thoroughly debated. The government made its position clear. The opposition made its position clear. And the people made a clear choice. Where do we go from here? The question is no longer whether government should get out of the booze business, but rather how and how quickly? The current policy of leveling the playing field for both private and government stores is a great start. Closing the least profitable government stores to make room for new private stores is another important step. But there’s more to be done. The provincial government still monopolizes liquor warehousing. It’s a choke point for supply chains, especially for specialty products. This is silly. A government owned booze warehouse makes about as much sense as a government owned box factory or a government owned potato company. Change will take time and may even require new legislation, but the government has a clear mandate to move forward. There is a role for government regarding liquor. Government should regulate liquor. And, whether we like it or not, government will always tax liquor. But the people have spoken: government shouldn’t be in the business of selling liquor.

Budget costs are a big challenge We now know when to expect a provincial budget: June 1, or more than two months after it is normally presented in the Saskatchewan legislature. However, we don’t know “what” to expect in a tough 2016-17 budget in which the downturn in oil and the overall Saskatchewan economy appears to have caught up with us. Judging by some hints Premier Brad Wall has already dropped, it may be that we really don’t want to know. Something is about to give; something we are about to find out two months later than we normally do and not until after the provincial election. To the credit of Premier Brad Wall and company, where they have often demonstrated skills in the notso-easy task of keeping operational spending in line. Admittedly, there are those who would argue this has not necessarily always been the case. The Saskatchewan Party government’s first budget was chock-full of overspending; both in capital spending and operational spending.


Provincial Politics

Most significant was the 36-percent-plus four-year settlement given to nurses, which set a precedent for all public sector spending and drove up the expense side of the ledger as quickly as the revenue side of the ledger was increasing at the time. The problem, however, was that revenues did not remain high because what was once $140 US a barrel oil is now $40 US a barrel. By contrast, government spending; even when you take into account the flexibility of supposed one-time capital investments; remain with us and is much harder to reduce. But under former finance minister Ken Krawetz in particular, the government proved to be rather good at keeping operational costs in line within the budget year. That included health spending, that somehow always seemed to explode within the budget year under the old NDP government. In fact, short of the unex-

pected costs like fire and flooding, the Sask. Party has been very good at meeting the budget goals it set out. What it hasn’t been very good at, however, is keeping the budget at the same level year after year. And keeping the 201617 budget close to last year’s $14.3 billion; a budget that contained an admitted $427-million deficit plus $700-million on capital borrowing the government doesn’t much talk about; will be a tough job. The challenge for the Wall government begins with the reality that it was elected on continuing to provide services and not cut services that the public saw as a priority. Included in that is specific promises to rural folks like an extra $70 million to fix the roads. Further complicating his situation is Wall’s recent commitment to increase spending to health ($5.6 billion) education ($3.6 billion) and social services ($1.2 billion). That totals $10.4 billion plus the promised modest increases, leaving the government to find the savings

in the remaining $4 billion of spending. Included in that $4 billion is highways spending (that Sask. Party platform said it would increase) and municipal government (where rural and urban communities have been told they will still get their full share of the revenue sharing pool). Moreover, Wall also said recently his government won’t raise taxes and plans to keep the deficit at less than last year’s $427 million. That leaves preciously little wiggle room for his government that must look at other critical ministries as potential candidates for cuts. Among those ministries most likely to feel the axe in the June 1 budget are ones critical to rural Saskatchewan. That would include agriculture, environment and natural resources and economic development. Also, while Wall might say there will be increases in health education that doesn’t mean rural and smaller city hospitals or rural school boards aren’t about the feel the pinch. Cost cuts will not come easy.


The Clark’s Crossing Gazette welcomes the submission of news stories, photos, letters or any other information that would be of interest to the readers of this newspaper.


If you or someone you know has been involved in an event you think is newsworthy, please include your name and contact information (either a daytime telephone number and/or email address). Please send the information in a timely manner following the event and remember to include as much pertinent information as possible, including the following: 1. WHO was involved? 2. WHAT was the event? 3. WHEN and WHERE did the event occur? 4. WHY was the event important?


All the information that goes with a news story should also accompany photo(s) as above. Include the names of all the people in each photo and identify from left to right and from back to front. 1. Set your camera to the highest resolution possible. The more resolution, the better the final outcome of the photo in print. 2. Don’t be shy! Get close to your subject(s). Most photos taken with a built-in zoom lens extended will produce “grainy” images that do not reproduce well. 3. Attempt to get dynamic photos of something happening instead of just a quick snapshot. 4. “Presentation” photos typically don’t work well if there are too many people side-by-side in the frame. If there are many people in the photo, have them as close together as possible and, if needed, have the front row seated and the back row standing. 5. Remember taking a picture facing into the sun or bright light will produce poor quality images.

Brenda Black named Warman volunteer of year By TERRY PUGH The City of Warman recognized the valuable contribution volunteers make to the community by handing out three awards on Thursday, April 14. Brenda Black, one of the main organizers of the volunteer-run Warman Childcare Centre was named 2016 Volunteer of the Year. The Warman Chamber of Commerce was presented with the city’s 2016 Volunteer Committee of the Year award. Kody Davis and Brianna Ramsfield were each awarded plaques for Youth Volunteer of the Year. The awards were presented at a supper at the Legends Centre sponsored by the city as a way of saying thanks to the dozens of volunteers active in the community. Warman Mayor Sheryl Spence said the community benefits from the countless

hours of labour that volunteers contribute to making the city a better place. Spence said Davis and Ramsfield were chosen because of the work they have done as volunteers with the Kids in the Garden and Kids in the Kitchen programs. Ramsfield is a Grade 12 honours student at Warman High School (WHS) who plans on entering the University of Saskatchewan College of Education in the fall. Davis is also a Grade 12 student at WHS who is looking to study Kinesiology at the U of S. They both volunteered to help youth work in the community garden in 2015, and were each given an award by the national chapter of the Communities in Bloom program for their efforts. Brenda Black was one of the main organizers of the Warman Childcare Centre committee, which began in 2013. The group worked to secure capital funding and

Childcare Centre opened its doors. This is a service that will benefit not only residents today but also future generations.” The Warman Chamber of Commerce began in 2013 with the aim of bettering the city in general and local

businesses in particular. “This organization has grown to a membership of over 110 businesses,” said Spence. “It has created a vital service for our community with initiatives like the Business Excellence Awards.

“In the past few years our community has experienced significant growth, and this includes the growth of the business sector. The support of the Warman Chamber of Commerce for both new and established businesses has been incredibly beneficial.”

Martensville students close to completing KidSport playhouse By TERRY PUGH After many months of measuring, sawing, hammering and painting, the KidSport dream playhouse is almost ready. In fact, this Saturday, April 30, is the big day when members of the public will finally get a chance to check it out for themselves. The 100-square-foot twostorey playhouse is slated to be moved from the industrial arts shop at Martensville High School (MHS) to the parking lot of the Martensville A&W. It will be on display as the grand prize in a raffle designed to raise funds for the Martensville and Warman

KidSport organizations, locally-run charities that distribute money to needy families so their children can participate in organized sports. MHS shop teacher David Fossum said the students have put their hearts and souls into this project. Some have devoted hundreds of hours during class, at lunchtime, and after school. “I’d say about 50 to 60 kids altogether had a hand in building this little house,” said Fossum at the shop on Wednesday, April 20. “It’s a very complicated project; a lot more intricate than your average shed, that’s for sure. But they have done an excellent job,

and this is definitely built to last.” Fossum credited the owners of the Martensville A&W and Martensville Building and Home Supply with helping make the dream a reality. According to Fossum, the main floor of the playhouse is “functional” and the upper floor is “funky”. “The students did a lot of the design work themselves, and they came up with some fun ideas for kids; but they also wanted it to be something that would still be useful after the kids are grown.” Fundraising raffle tickets for the playhouse will be available beginning in May.

The KidSport playhouse being built by students is a two-storey structure with dormer windows on the second floor and features vinyl siding and cedar shakes on the exterior walls. The interior is completely drywalled and finished. (Above left) Martensville High School students paint the upper floor in bright, kid-friendly colours.

Dear Residents: The purpose of our newsletter is to provide all residents in Warman & area with information as to what is happening in business, sport and our community. We believe it is important that as a learning and highly-involved community, we share this information with everyone. Please feel free to call Josh (306-933-2133) or Jennifer(306-933-2210) if you have suggestions or information for our newsletter.

Hello from Mayor and Council, “Your life is your message to the world, make it inspiring…” With the start of spring, April is the time where we as a community take time to celebrate the volunteers of our community. In our community, we are so fortunate to have many residents who take the time out of their busy lives to volunteer. Whether it be volunteering for a sports team, an event or participating in a community committee of any sort, every hour volunteered is appreciated. Last week, the City of Warman hosted the Annual Volunteer Supper where the 2016 award recipients were celebrated for their dedication to the community. The Youth Volunteer of the Year Award was presented to two deserving Warman High School students who have taken the time to nurture and grow the Kids in the Garden program in Warman. Kody Davis and Brianna Ramsfield are strong youth role models for our community and its youth. In fact, Kody and Brianne’s dedication to the community and commitment in providing leadership to our youth through the program has been recognized and rewarded nationally. The Volunteer Committee of Year was presented to the Warman Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber has built a strong network of community businesses in Warman. Their support has given the business community a place to share ideas, network, celebrate successes and provide excellent customer service. The 2016 Volunteer of the Year award was presented to Brenda Black. Brenda and members of her organization started with a vision in 2013 and little did she, or members of her organization or the community know how much this vision would contribute to our vibrant city. Brenda and her team worked hard and built partnerships that eventually allowed their vision to become a reality. The Warman Childcare Centre is a service that will not only benefit our residents today, but will also benefit our future generations. Congratulations to these award winners for the dedication and passion in their own areas of expertise.

I also want to take the time to send a big thank you to all of Warman's volunteers. Your special attention and care nurtures our city in the community we all call our home. Respectfully submitted, Mayor Sheryl Spence Administration & Finance Committee Report As we move through the first quarter of 2016, the Administration and Finance Committee has been busy monitoring budgets and the financial health of the City of Warman. Just recently, the 2015 reserve allocations were approved by City Council, as recommended by the Administration and Finance Committee. The Committee and Council as a whole is proud of the level of service that the City of Warman has been able to provide to its residents, while still planning for our future and building reserve funds.

and vehicles and keep valuables out of plain sight. If you do still experience a break-in or theft it is very important to report it. The RCMP may not always be able to catch the perpetrator immediately, but reported crimes allow the RCMP to notice patterns and trends which affect their distribution of time and resources to assist in catching the perpetrators. To report a crime you can do it one of three ways:  Stop in at the station located on 6th Avenue in Warman;  Email  Phone 306-975-1670. Respectfully submitted, Councilor Trevor Peterson, Protective Services Committee Chair As always, do not hesitate to call your Mayor or Council if you have questions, suggestions or just want to chat. We always welcome conversation with the residents of this great city. From all of us on Warman City Council

Among the many focuses the Administration and Finance Committee will have over the remainder of the year, and one of the more exciting items, will be the initial phases of the asset management for the City. Research into software and applications will begin in the 2016 calendar year, with implementation of a full asset management program scheduled for 2017. Asset management is key to planning for the future of the City and will be a fantastic compliment to the existing City reserve funds. At the April 11th Regular Meeting of Council, a Bylaw to Fix and Levy Property taxes for 2016 was approved. This Bylaw included a modest property tax increase which resulted in a 2.69% average increase for residential properties and a 2.93% average increase for commercial properties. With the growth Warman has experienced over the past number of years, Council and Administration believe this tax increase will allow City staff to continue to provide the superior level of service our residents have become accustomed to, while still remaining mindful of the financial impact property taxes have on our residents. Respectfully submitted, Councilor Kevin Tooley, Administration & Finance Committee Chair Protective Services Committee Report On March 28, Warman Fire and Rescue unveiled their new ladder truck. This completes the updating of our major fire equipment which accomplishes two things. First, it allows our amazing Warman Fire and Rescue to have up to date equipment so they can protect us better. Secondly, having proper equipment for the city lowers the insurance rates for all of our citizens and businesses. You may not see any real decreases in your insurance rates, but you won't see the increases that would occur if there wasn't adequate equipment. As we get into spring and summer, the RCMP would like to remind everyone to be mindful of the usual increase in break-ins and thefts that we sometimes see in warmer weather.

Emergency Preparedness Week

• Emergency Plan • Special items – medications, infant formula, medical equipment, food and water for pets, etc Once you have a basic kit, it is recommended that you add: • Extra water for cooking and cleaning • Water purifying tablets • Candles and matches • Change of clothing/shoes • Sleeping bag or blanket • Toiletries • Hand Sanitizer • Toilet Paper • Utensils • Garbage bags • Basic tools • Small fuel-operated stove and fuel • Whistle • Duct Tape You should consider adding some additional items that are specific to you and/ or your family.

In Saskatchewan, residents face a number of potentially harmful situations. These include severe weather events such as tornadoes, blizzards and prolonged power outages. Man-made events such as industrial or transportation accidents, train derailments and spills are potential sources of damage to our communities.

Canada’s Get Prepared website (address above) is an excellent source of information about the many types of potential emergencies and what individuals can do to be prepared for them. Randy and Tracy stress that the most important aspect to being aware is to know what is happening in your community. The cities of Warman and Martensville have emergency alerting systems that will notify their residents about developing situations, give them basic instructions and tell them where to find more information. Everyone is strongly encouraged to sign up for the alerting system. Residents of Warman can sign up for NOTIFY NOW at www. Residents of Martensville can sign up for notifynow at

Dahlia Salon promotes water aid campaign By HILARY KLASSEN Fresh clean water, is a precious commodity. In Madagascar, girls walk six kilometres a day to get water, but that water is contaminated. It’s the only option they have. Each girl hauls an unbelievable 40 litres up steep hills and through valleys to bring home water for the day. The girls are in danger from animals and from men. Dahlia Salon and Spa is looking to change that. The Martensville company recently brought in the Aveda hair product line, and have

joined Aveda in a project to “get the little girls out of the water cycle.”

We want the girls to go to school and be able to live a daily life. - Lindsy Tkach

“We are so excited to be joining Aveda on their journey with their 2016 Water Aid Campaign!” said Lindsy Tkach, owner of Dahlia. On Thursday evening,

April 21, the salon hosted a fund-raising event, with balloon pop prizes, silent auction, snacks and a presentation. Sensory journeys and massages were offered for a donation of $25. The same amount got people a ticket for a chance to win a $1,000 gift basket of Aveda products and Dahlia services. Celesta deMesa-Kassian with Aveda came out from Saskatoon and did a presentation to give people a sense of how their donations will be used. She showed the exact route the girls have to go, to get their contaminated water. “We are on a challenge to

raise money to help build a well in Madagascar,” said Tkach. “At this point we have saved 298 girls and that number is increasing every day. We’re getting more and more donations. We want the girls to go to school and be able to live a daily life.” Canadian Aveda is trying to raise $500,000 over the next three years. Tkach says if they raise $7,200 they can still help build that well. The total amount will go toward similar projects over the three years. Tkach says there is maybe 10 per cent clean water on the whole island of Madagascar, and in the area

where they want to build the well, there is zero clean water. “What we’re going to do in the next three years is build the well, build infrastructure and teach them how to maintain and live with clean water.” Tkach says everyone at Dahlia is very passionate about this Aveda “Do Our Part” Water Aid Campaign. “This is near and dear to my heart because I am a mother and I couldn’t imagine my daughter having to do this,” said Tkach. “This is why we need to take the children out of their water cycle.”

Tkach feels a debt of gratitude to Firebird Consulting and Mainstage in Lawson Heights Mall for helping them organize and pull off the event, to businesses who provided silent auction items and prizes, and to Sandy Lockhart for getting photos. Dahlia plans to run this event again next year. The salon uses six gallons of water per hair wash, and they want to give back with water. A donation of $25 gets a person water for life. Dahlia is accepting donations during Earth Month until the end of April.

Bunnock pitchin’ scores a direct hit at Aberdeen fundraiser

By WAYNE SHIELS Make no bones about it, the game of bunnock is a lot of fun and can be enjoyed by people of all ages. This was evident as Aberdeen hosted its second bunnock tournament at the Aberdeen Equestrian Centre on Saturday, April 23. Bunnock, also known as the game of bones, is a mixture of bocce ball, bowling and curling; with all the playing elements being horse ankle bones. Legend has it the game originated when Russian soldiers stationed in Siberia in the 1800s developed the game as a way to pass the time. It was a substitute for horseshoes since it was difficult to pound stakes into the frozen tundra, while the ankle bones of horses would stand up easily. The rules of the game are fairly simple. Each team has four players. They get two throws per round as they try to knock down the bones of the opposing team that are lined up 10 metres away. Each row of bones has a single guard bone at each end that must be knocked down first. The first team to knock down all their opponents’ bones wins. The Aberdeen tournament was timed so that if all the bones were not eliminated then the team that knocked the most down was declared the winner. The shape of the bones makes it interesting as it is difficult to predict the bounce when the bone hits the ground. The tournament, which attracted 21 teams, was a First place: Trevor Robulak, fundraiser for the Aberdeen CurlAllison Bates, Jamie ing Club. Gillert,Melanie Stare

CAPRICORN December 22– January 19

You are often the one to help others, but this week you need some assistance. Accept any help you can get and thank those who are willing to lend a hand.

AQUARIUS January 20– February 18

Aquarius, distractions may be enjoyable this week, but you have to limit them or you will get nothing done. There’s a lot on your plate that you have to complete.

PISCES February 19– March 20

Tackling some financial problems this week, Pisces. Focus on old debt or something that has been plaguing you for some time.

ARIES March 21– April 19

Aries, it is easy to get excited about the wrong things this week. Try not to be too reckless in your actions, and stick with someone like Libra to keep you grounded.

TAURUS April 20– May 20

Taurus, you may be unable to keep your emotions in check this week, and you just might let more things slip than you hoped to. It’s okay to open up once in a while.

GEMINI May 21– June 21

Pursue a moneymaking idea because a partnership project is something right at this venture in time. Create a solid relationship with someone you trust and get started.


CANCER June 22– July 22

Cancer, you keep hitting a wall with regard to a project. Accept that you will not make too much progress now and move on to something else. You can circle back later.

LEO July 23– August 22

A particular goal may seem like an uphill battle to anyone else but you, Leo. You have the stamina, work ethic and the personality to overcome any obstacle.

VIRGO August 23– September 22

Virgo, you may be ready to go out on your own and demonstrate your independence, but something is holding you back. A support system isn’t a bad thing.

LIBRA September 23– October 22

Libra, you may quickly tire of any tasks that are put in front of you this week. Repetition is just not your friend, so look for activities that may be more stimulating.

SCORPIO October 23– November 21

Scorpio, repeatedly taking an unsuccessful approach won’t produce new results. It’s time to try a new tactic. Perhaps ask a friend for a different perspective.

SAGITTARIUS November 22– December 21

Sagittarius, turn up the charm and you’ll have more opportunities to get things to go your way. Just don’t put on an act or others will see right through it.

Keep calm and fly on: Toastmasters

By RICHARD BECK Talk of the Square Club President, 2016 Division Contest Organizer “Keep calm and fly on!” Wise words from Lisa Harron, the Warman Talk of the Square Toastmaster and Evaluation Sample Speaker. The 20-year-old, and the youngest member of Talk of the Square, captured attention and imagination from novice and experienced Toastmasters alike. “She has displayed amazing growth with the short time she has been with the club!” commented Toastmaster Ernie Quintal. Deputy Mayor Gary Philipchuk opened the Division Contest in Warman on Saturday, April 16, welcoming contestants and guests from Prince Albert to Lloydminster and Saskatoon. A former toastmaster himself in 1988, he highlighted the City of Warman’s growth in population, retail services, new businesses and attraction of destination events like this

Toastmaster Division Contest. Philipchuk concluded: “Make some memories today and grow from this experience!” The contest included Evaluation and International Speech competitions. Each evaluation competitor critiques the presented sample speech. “This is a challenging but necessary skill for Toastmasters,” explained Jane Danoci. “We find new ways to encourage and improve our members’ presentation skills.” Ironically, each evaluation competitor is judged as they share their thoughts and constructive points towards the sample speech. Speech contests are a Toastmasters tradition. Each year thousands of Toastmasters compete in the Humorous, Evaluation, Tall Tales, Table Topics and International speech contests. Competition begins with club contests and winners continue compet-


Toastmasters Division Director Don Zurakowski (left) and Toastmasters representative Jane Danoci presented Carol Harrison with the Evaluation Award ing through the area, division and district levels. The International competition has two additional levels — semifinal and the World Championship of Public Speaking. Division Director Don Zurakowski remarked, “This is a great venue and a well hosted event! Talk of the Square should be proud of what has been achieved here today!” Zurakowski presented

Both Harrison and Acquaye advance to the District Competition to be held April 29 to May 1 in Red Deer, AB.

Warman High School grads benefit from scholarships

By TERRY PUGH A record number of Warman High School (WHS) Grade 12 grads who are pursuing post-secondary education in the fall will benefit from a unique scholarship program. WHS implemented its own scholarship program in 1994 with a $1,000 fund from the local school board, according to WHS Principal Michael Collins. “That initial year we provided four students with $250 each,” said Collins at the school’s annual “Scholarship Breakfast” event on Thursday, April 21. “Since then it’s grown every year. In June, we’ll have our largest graduating class ever; close to 150 students, and every Grade 12 grad who goes on to a post-secondary institution, whether it’s uni-

ful the school has a program like this.” Adam Parenteau, co-chair of the WHS student representative council (SRC) who is active in the school’s drama program, said he intends

versity or art school or Sask Polytechnic, will receive scholarship funds to help them pursue their dream.” Collins said the WHS scholarship program is unique. “I don’t know of another school that has a pro-

gram like this, not just in Saskatchewan, but in all of Canada,” said Collins. “It is based on the generosity of businesses and individuals who contribute to the scholarship fund. That’s what makes it so successful.” Last year, he said, the scholarship fund distributed $42,000 to students. The minimum scholarship was $500; while students who excelled academically, exhibited exceptional leadership qualities and who did the most volunteer work in the community earned higher scholarships. “Our goal is to reach the $50,000 mark for the fund,” said Collins. “We want to provide greater support for the students, and also be-

Martensville adopts Kinsmen Park master plan

By TERRY PUGH The City of Martensville adopted a new master plan to guide development of its crown jewel, Kinsmen Park. The updated master plan was formally endorsed at the Martensville City Council meeting on Tuesday, April 19. The plan was prepared by consulting engineers Crosby Hanna and Associates and is divided into four phases, with the first phase focusing on seeding grass, linking walking paths together and beautifying the boulevards on 10th Avenue. Phase Two of the plan involves the development of a skate park; Phase Three will focus on secondary paths, and Phase Four encompasses irrigation and general maintenance. The tender for the upgrades is expected to be released at the end of May.


Members of the Saskatoon Kart Racers club who utilize the Martensville Speedway will benefit from additional storage and workspace as a result of a decision by Martensville City Council to allow the use of shipping con-

tainers on the city-owned property. A total of nine containers was approved, with the club assuming responsibility for maintenance and upkeep of the facilities. The club’s racing season begins in May.

Adam Parenteau cause there are more and more students graduating every year and we want to ensure we help them all.” Several WHS Grade 12 students explained the importance of the scholarship funds to themselves and their classmates. Aleya Anderson, who is the WHS student representative on Warman City Council, said her goal is to become a physician, and that means eight years of university. “It’s going to be an expensive proposition,” she said. “This scholarship will really help. It’s difficult to save a lot of money when you’re going to school and also active in things like sports and dance. I’m really thank-

to go to university and get a degree in psychology. Breanne Boy, who cochairs the WHS SRC with Parenteau, is looking to get a degree in political science from the U of S.

Students and teachers making music together at the PSSD Resonate conference

Making music in Prairie Spirit School Division By BRENDA ERICKSON Prairie Spirit School Division The second annual Resonate Student Music Conference was two days of making music, learning from music industry professionals and forming new friendships for over 200 students from 20 Prairie Spirit schools. This unique conference was designed to give Prairie Spirit students in grades 7 to 12 the opportunity to pursue music learning based on their personal interests. This year, the conference was expanded to include students from outside the school division as well. The overall goal of the conference was to further engage students in school through music and contribute to their development as musicians, both for those students who are already involved in music learning and those who are not, explained Kendra Worman, the school division’s Music Support Facilitator. “It was exciting to see such a variety of musical instruments in tow as students filed off their buses when they arrived at the conference,” she said. This was the second year for this student conference, which was held April 14 and 15 at the Salvation Army Beaver Creek Camp. The camp provided a creative location without the distractions of a regular school day. Students participated in one of the two days of the conference and chose sessions from approximately 30 options offered by a number of local, provincial and national music industry professionals, designed for students with a range of ability and knowledge. Session topics included: composing, guitar, drumming, digital recording, wind ensemble, hip hop, Beat making, jamming, and several others. These sessions were interactive, hands-on and designed for students. “It was wonderful to see a mix of students from different musical backgrounds and different schools working together to make music,” Worman said. “We were fortunate to go outside for some of our sessions. Creating music in nature under a warm sun was the

icing on the cake!” A central “jam stage” was available for students and music professionals to make music together. The jam stage was a busy place throughout the conference and was a focus for both students and music professionals. A music industry panel gave students the chance to learn about a wide variety of career paths available in the music field and how to pursue them. “The musicians provided positive messages for students around challenges they have had to face and other issues in society that impact their work,” Worman explained. Both days of the conference featured a performance by a music industry

professional. Bombargo, a local band performed on the first day of the conference while InfoRed and Merky Waters performed on the second day. A day-long professional development opportunity for music teachers on April 13 was an exciting addition to the Resonate schedule. The day was designed for music specialists and classroom teachers from around the province to come together to learn more about leading and facilitating music in their classrooms and schools. The conference was made possible through the generous support of a number of corporate sponsors. Plans are already underway for Resonate 2017.

Prairie View School stages classic oriental-theme musical

By TJ THOMPSON Roxanne Bitner and Scott Burant first teamed up to direct the musical, Annie Jr., at Prairie View School in Dalmeny back in 2000. Now, eight productions later, they’re looking forward to Prairie View Elementary School’s performance of Mulan Jr., slated for May 12-14. The directors chose Mulan Jr. because of its wonderful music and its underlying message of honour, family and community. After choosing the musical and clearing the copyright legalities, the directors staged auditions. When deciding which child will be cast, the directors looked for passion, expression, and a voice that evokes an emotional response. The directors said every step in the process of putting on a musical helps students develop in a variety of ways. “I think every child needs to find their niche; they need to find where they fit, and learn something new about themselves,” said Bitner. “I think the arts really gives the child that opportunity. Many of the kids perform here and then in the high school and go on to other theater such as Persephone, the University of Saskatchewan, and The Barn Playhouse, all as a result of starting in the arts programs in the elementary school.” What do they love most about directing the plays? “There is always that moment when you know you can’t really direct anything more,” said Burant. “You see them on stage and



Kylie Wiens (far left) plays Mulan. Directors (top centre) Scott Burant, Aaron Shafhauser, Janice Janzen, Dawn Irwin-Burant, Roxanne Bitner, Jody Thompson. Actors (top) Ellie Neufeldt, Morgyn Hyland, Adrian Logue. Mulan with soldiers (left) Kylie Wiens, Owen Huber, Aidan Burant, Alex Logue, Braxton Benoit, Gavin Burant, Jayden Turta-Rodwin, Mason Peterson, Ross Bain, Xander Earle, Domanik Wiens you just forget how old they are, and you forget where they started, and you just see this amazingly special performance from each child. Just seeing them grow from where they started.” said Scott. The directors credited the many

volunteers who contribute their time and energy to get the production off the ground. “Dalmeny is an amazing place for volunteers and has been since day one,” said Bitner. “The volunteers invest hundreds of hours and

aren’t necessarily connected to the school in any other way. The entire community stands behind it.” The proceeds from ticket sales are used to maintain the school’s Fine Arts program, purchase new materials, new lights, or other

equipment. The remainder covers the expenses for the performances. Information on times of performances is available on the Prairie View School website. Tickets are available at the school or by calling the school at 306-254-2633.

Town of Dalmeny implements fire ban due to dry conditions By TERRY PUGH A fire ban in the Town of Dalmeny was implemented last week and remains in effect for the immediate future. Dalmeny Fire Chief Rick Elder said the fire ban was put in place on Monday, April 18, three days after the RM of Corman Park implemented a fire ban. Many other RMs across the province also have similar measures in place. “It’s very dry out there,”

said Elder in an interview on Thursday, April 21. “Up until today, the fire danger map had us in the ‘extreme fire danger’ range. The cooler weather today has brought us down to ‘high fire danger’, but obviously, that’s still pretty serious.” Elder said the day the fire ban was implemented in Dalmeny, the relative humidity in the area was down to 9 per cent. “I’ve never seen it that low,” he said. “With elevated

temperatures, low humidity, and very dry conditions, it’s almost an explosive situation.” On Friday, April 22, temperatures fell further and isolated rain showers helped ease the situation, but Elder said it’s still too early to lift the fire ban. “There have been fires in Corman Park,” he said. “We haven’t had one close to Dalmeny yet, but obviously the ban is justified. You have to be proactive with these kinds of situations.”

Carbon monoxide alarms important was making the people sick, and that it was at dangerous levels. “They immediately got everyone out of the house and opened the windows to provide ventilation.” Elder, who at the time of the incident was outside the home in one of the emergency vehicles to provide a lead-in for the ambulance, heard a request for assistance on his radio from the first responders inside. “I could tell from their tone of voice that it was an urgent situation,” he said. “There was no panic, but it was clear they needed help right away. “We put on our self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBAs) and went back inside the house to do a primary search just to make sure there wasn’t anyone else inside,” he said. “There wasn’t. “Then we used our detector, and confirmed there were very high levels of CO inside the home. “The levels were over 900 parts per million,” he added. “When CO levels are at 1200 parts per million, that’s considered immediately dangerous to life and

health. So it was just under that deadly level, but still very, very high. In fact, I’ve never seen CO levels that high before that couldn’t be traced to an obvious direct cause like a vehicle running in an attached garage, for example. It could have been a terrible tragedy. “We’ve often talked during our training sessions about keeping one eye open for telltale signs of CO poisoning,” said Elder. “If you have multiple people in the house not feeling well, that’s a big clue.” Once the patients were transferred to ambulances to be taken to hospital, SaskEnergy was called to investigate the source of the CO leak. Elder said it was determined that a faulty natural-gas fired heating appliance was the cause. “I don’t know how long it had been leaking, but there were very elevated levels, particularly in the upper storey of the home,” said Elder. “CO is somewhat lighter than air, so it tends to go up. It concentrates in rooms where there isn’t a lot of air circulation.” CO is often called a silent killer because it is odor-

less, invisible, and tasteless. Its effects are not immediately noticeable, but over an extended period it can cause serious injury or even death. Elder said newer buildings tend to be built very air-tight, so fresh air exchange vents are critical to ensure that CO doesn’t build up inside the residence. Elder said people need to ensure external vents are not blocked by snow, ice or other material. Excess humidity buildup inside a home, particularly in the winter, is a common cause of elevated CO levels. But the most important thing, he added, is to have a working carbon monoxide alarm in the home, preferably in an area close to the bedrooms. “An average of 50 people per year die in Canada because of carbon monoxide poisoning,” said Elder. “Most of the time they are found in their beds.” He said CO alarms should be installed according to manufacturer’s instructions and checked regularly to make sure they’re operating as they should.

Louisiana Hayride tunes in classic country favourites By TERRY PUGH The Louisiana Hayride rolled into Warman’s Brian King Centre last week with a wagon-load of Nashville nostalgia. And by the time the party was over, several hundred new fans had climbed onto the hayride bandwagon, eager for an encore. If there’s one thing that fans of three-chord country music appreciate, it’s the classics. George, Tammy, Johnny, Loretta and Hank. They just don’t make them like that anymore. The Louisiana Hayride recreated a live countrywestern music radio show from Shreveport’s KWKH station that ran from 1948 to 1960. It opened the door for such legendary artists as Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline and Ray Price. Listening audiences even got their first taste of Elvis Presley on the Louisi-

ana Hayride. The cast of the long-running show, which does twice-annual concerts in centres across BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan, clearly love this gig. Musicians Gil Risling, Mike Melnichuk, WIlliam Brookfield and Andrea Anderson, along with writer-host Lori Risling delivered a show that was both polished and down-to-earth, reeling off a string of memorable songs made famous by country legends as diverse as Johnny Cash and Burl Ives. Their cover-versions of the hits were spot on, and in some cases even better than the original. Brookfield’s amazing Tex-Mex guitar picking on Marty Robbins’ ‘El Paso’ was nothing short of amazing; and Anderson’s vocals really shone when she channeled Patsy Cline. The background anecdotes about the musicians and the songs provided context for

the performances, delivered in costume and in character, by members of the band. Willie Nelson, for example, was recognized as one of the best songwriters in the business for decades before he ever had a hit record. It was amusing to see Gil Risling (as Willie Nelson) constantly being told he wasn’t singing his own songs properly. The original radio program showcased new artists, and the stage version was true to the tradition, introducing a young singer-songwriter, Troy Wakelin, from North Battleford. Wakelin toured with the show throughout their Saskatchewan stint. The Hayride, now in its seventh year, regularly tours larger towns and smaller cities across western Canada. Based on the enthusiastic reception the show got last week, they’re likely to be back this way in the fall or next spring.
