Blaine Lake dedicates centennial monument The community of Blaine Lake’s recognition of the past will be seen by generations years into the future as a result of a legacy monument project. The wheat stook sculpture, designed and built by Saskatoon artist Patricia Shiplett, was unveiled at a ceremony Saturday afternoon as a part of the Town and RM’s centennial celebrations. Committee chair Pat Ciona, emceed the ceremony that drew MLAs, municipal officials and representatives from the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM). “This statue of the stook honours our great grand parents, grandparents and parents who’s livelihood were in some way intertwined with the harvesting of the grain,” said Ciona, noting that the monument will be a constant reminder to the community the gratitude owed to those who settled the land in the early years and set the path for what it is today. Sask Environment Minister and former Blaine Lake resident Ken Cheveldayoff cut the ribbon on the monument. “People in this community took the time to ensure we learned about our past but they were always very, very excited about our future,” said Cheveldayoff, of growing up in Blaine Lake. Having taken part in similar ceremonies as a part of his position in government, getting to come back to his hometown to be a part of Blaine Lake’s centennial was extra special to him.

Community of Blaine Lake celebrates 100 years A year and a half of planning was rewarded with great weather and a great turnout as the Town and RM of Blaine Lake celebrated its centennial. Blaine Lake Mayor and event co-chair Ernie Crowder said that the event couldn’t have gone better with two days of hot weather and upwards of 2,000 people taking in the festivities. “We were planning for around 2,000 people. We don’t know exactly how many showed up but I think it was awful close,” said Crowder. “We couldn’t have asked for better weather.”

The big start to the event was Saturday’s parade with floats and vehicles from across the region taking part. From there, a variety of events took place throughout town. The committee got a number of organizations involved throughout the community so that there would be a wide variety of events with venues dispersed throughout town. With slo-pitch, children’s attractions and music at the Sports Grounds, Saturday’s musical stage down town and a variety of tours throughout the community, there was a little of something for everybody through the two days while avoiding congestion.

Each day also featured an unveiling ceremony of a pair of monuments which will endure long after the party has ended. Blaine Lake product and Saskatchewan Minister of Environment, Ken Cheveldayoff was on hand to cut the ribbon on a stainless steel wheat stook sculpture, fashioned by Saskatoon artist Patricia Shippett, located in a park at the corner of 1st Street and 4th Avenue West Saturday afternoon. Meanwhile, a ceremony unveiling a Doukhobor mill stone display and the grand opening of the park at the corner of Main Street and Railway Avenue East. The mill stone, donated by the Postnikoff

family, was used by Doukhobor settlers to make flour for their settlement south of Blaine Lake and now has a permanent home at the park. Though the weather was beautiful through the two days, Crowder said rains leading up to the event had him worried. He noted, that even though there was registration at Blaine Lake Composite School Friday and Saturday, many opted not to register. Saturday culminated in a 20 minute fireworks show that many said would rival those in the province’s cities. Photos on page 10

In the novelty competitions Ethel Williamson was closest to the pin with a drive landing 83 1/2 inches from the pin while Al Dion was the men’s winner with his ball coming to a stop 69 inches from the pin. Bonnie Schmirler and Bill Miller were the closest to the line winners. Ethel Williamson canned the ladies longest putt with a successful attempt from 7 feet, four inches while Clarence Bowes’ 21 footer earned him the men’s prize.

Record setting month for building permits in Saskatchewan Saskatchewan building permits set a new record for June, according to a new report released this week by Statistics Canada. Building permits reached a value of $308 million in June, a 33.5 per cent increase over the figure for June 2011. This was the second highest increase among the provinces and well above the national average of 3.2 per cent. “Construction sites are busy in all corners

of the province, which is a testament to our strong and growing economy,” Economy Minister Bill Boyd said. “As we continue to attract new families and businesses to Saskatchewan we expect to see this growth continue.” Non-residential construction was up 34.7 per cent compared to June 2011, while residential construction saw an increase of 32.7 per cent for this same period.

Blaine Lake man to chair conference Robert Bell, a resident of Blaine Lake for the past 6 years, has been invited by the Government of Yukon and the Inuvialuit Game Council to chair the 2012 Yukon North Slope Conference. The conference focuses upon the rich wildlife resources of the Beaufort Sea drainage basin in the western Arctic including grizzly and polar bears, the Porcupine caribou herd, moose and muskoxen as well as the millions of waterfowl and other migratory birds that nest in the area, and of course the fish and whales. ”I am delighted to accept the invitation to chair the upcoming Conference, and on behalf of the Wildlife Management Advisory Council (North Slope), the Inuvialuit Game Council and the Yukon Government I am pleased to invite you to participate” says Bell in his letter of invitation. The purpose of the Conference is to promote public discussion among aboriginal people, governments, the general public and private sectors regarding the management for the Yukon North Slope. Environment Yukon is responsible for hosting the Conference, which is held every three years. The theme of the 2012 Conference is “Pathways to Arctic Innovation –Arctic Wildlife Conservation & Co-Management - Lessons Learned and Future Challenges”. This theme is especially significant after the passage of more than

35 years since the signing of the first modern day land claim agreement in Arctic Canada, the one which first introduced a new approach to wildlife conservation and management that is now referred to as “co-management.” Bell has had a long association with the area, first moving to Aklavik on the western edge of the Mackenzie delta as a teacher and school principal in 1969. A biologist with an MSc. as well as a teaching degree, he spent 6 years in that community during the stormy years of the early negotiations of the western Arctic land claim. Following further stints as a high school principal in the north he joined the NWT Wildlife Service where he became Director of Wildlife Management.

Penguin Summer Classic a success Teams from all over Saskatchewan travelled to the Canwood Regional Park to take in the annual Penguin Summer Classic Fastball Tournament June 23 and 24. Sixteen mens teams and five womens teams took in the event. Teams came from Regina, Saskatoon, Moose Jaw, Earl Grey, Rhein, Speers,and Warman. Local teams playing in the tournament were the Leoville Midgets, Leoville Juniors, Debden Outlaws, Parkland Rebels and the host team Dry Creek Penguins. Games started at 8am on Saturday and continued through until 7pm on Sunday. The weather co-operated with a beautiful weekend for playing ball. All who attended enjoyed the concession booth that was once again operated by the Canwood Multiple 4-H Club. New to the event was a dunk tank which was run by the Canwood Curling Club. In the men’s final, Saskatoon’s Mike and the Boys defeated the Tint Center Cubs, also from Saskatoon, in a great game featuring great hitting, defense and pitching. The winners took home 1st place money of $1000. The women’s event was also an all Saskatoon tilt with the Force defeating the Co-op Elite. The Force took the top prize of $650. The Dry Creek Penguins would like to acknowledge all of those who helped out with the event. Without the volunteers this tournament would not be able to operate. Next year’s tournament promises to be a great event with many of the teams promising to return.

Saskatoon’s Mike and the Boys won the men’s side tournament.

Local author releases ebook A Shellbrook based author launched his first book on Amazon’s Kindle earlier this year. Lorne Oliver wrote Red Island, A novel, over the course of six months while living in Prince Edward Island. The thriller follows the hunt for the Island’s first ever serial killer from the point of view of the RCMP and the killer himself. “I had these voices in my head I just had to get out,” said Oliver. His wife Brandi had a job with the RCMP in Prince Edward Island, where they lived while he was writing the novel. This gave him some access to RCMP members who provided him with some insight into how they operate. When he wrote the novel in 2010, PEI hadn’t had a homicide since 1984, however there have been a few since that time. What he says is unique about this piece is how his narrative follows both the RCMP as they hunt the killer and the killer himself from his point of view. “Close to the end, they converge and all hell breaks loose,” said Oliver. He was inspired to write the novel through

his love of watching crime shows like Homicide and Law and Order. He released the book to Kindle and so that all formats of e-readers are covered. The books can also be read on smartphones, with the use of e-reader applications and using computers. Though books are released on these formats for free, marketing is the sole responsibility of the author which has been a bit challenging. Through his use of Smashwords, an independent e-book distribution site, he has come into contact with other indy writers who have given him some tips on how to get his books out there. Though he is a fan of TV crime shows he said that there were a few scenes in the book tha t left him with nightmares. “I can’t keep my eyes closed for long in the shower because there’s a scene in there that scares me,” said Oliver.

Changes coming in First Nations country


August 10, 2012



he federal government has plans to make good on an election promise dating back to the 2006 election. The government is currently drafting a bill that would allow First Nations to sell reserve land. The bill, which I'm sure will spark plenty of debate throughout the country's 600 plus reserves, would give first nations bands the option to opt in or opt out of the soon to be proposed legislation. Individual First Nations would be able to provide band members “fee simple” ownership of their land to build a house on, use for a business venture, borrow money against or sell. Under the current regime, band members living on reserve live in BRAD homes owned by the band built DUPUIS on communal, tribal lands. No one person can stake claim to ~ any particular plot of land as it News belongs all members of the band. Reports of poor living conditions on reserves have been making headlines for years. Much of this has been caused by a system that is completely wrapped up in red tape. To build band housing, the band must seek funding and get the green light from the federal government. The same goes for repairs as a band with finite funding is left to look after the housing needs of a town or city sized population. With recent announcements of federal government cuts to social housing budgets on reserve, bands will have an even more difficult time keeping up with demand. A fee simple system may just be the answer to some of these issues as individuals would be able to get a mortgage to build a home and work towards maintaining it – ultimately taking the financial pressure off of the bands. With the ownership of land, that mortgage is made possible. Without it, lenders won't take the risk as they would have a difficult time recouping their money in the case of a default. However, the notion of individual land ownership flies in the face of first nations tradition. Lands have always been owned by the community with individual land ownership being a concept brought here by the Europeans. The Assembly of First Nations went so far as to call property ownership “a concept that is in direct contradiction to first nation sacred responsibilities and distinct relationship to our territories.” The trouble with selling land is that it is that much harder to buy back. As well, with first nations leaders worried about assimilation and loss of traditional culture, this could be the final straw that changes first nations forever. Ultimately, each first nation will decide whether or not they will opt in or opt out if this bill ever becomes law. Reports say that just 11 of more than 600 Canadian First Nations are interested in individual ownership. At the very least, it will create some interesting debate but really has the potential to change the landscape of the country.


(Property ownership is) a concept that is in direct contradiction to First Nation sacred responsibilities and distinct relationship to our territories. -- Assembly of First Nations

CFL's officials over officiating Editor: Over recent evenings I have watched two games between the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the Edmonton Eskimos. The officials must have worn out their hip pockets dropping and picking up flags. The CFL, which is otherwise a great and entertaining game no matter who is playing, showed its worst with flags being thrown on what seemed almost every second play, often ending up in a mini-meeting of officials which then ended up with a penalty being assessed, or a penalty being declined, or an announcement that the flag was thrown in error. Add the request for review flags coaches threw, and the automatic review mechanism at the end of each half and one ended up watching the officials more than the players. Something has to be done.

Shellbrook Chronicle Polling Question

Climate change discussion needed Editor: Why is it that people who want to conserve our climate, environment and resources are called radicals...and people that support radically changing our environment and atmosphere are called conservatives?? 215 million people watched the Olympic opening festivities with all its advertising, nationalist bravado, and corporate messaging. Our climate is destabilizing globally, breaking heat records, flooding, intensifying storms, causing drought such as the largest declared disaster area in U.S. history, raising sea levels and acidifying oceans, increasing the range of tropical diseases, reducing agricultural crop output and otherwise making a future for human civilization ever less possible. Does anyone really believe, as we face challenges unlike any other in human history, that it is really important under what flag someone comes in first in a foot race by a couple of hundredths of a second, but it‘s somehow acceptable that apparently we can‘t have any intelligent public discussion about climate change?

A hint of caution needed when dealing with GM technology Over the years writing this column I have been a supporter of the idea of genetically modified agriculture. When I look to the future and see two trends which suggest to me the need for genetically modified crops and livestock. On the one hand world populations are trending ever higher, with little effort being made to even discuss how to control that side of things. While at the same time agricultural land is very much a finite resource. Those two trends run counter to one another, and could well spell far more hungry mouths to feed with not enough food to do it in the future. So genetic modification of plants which could increase food production levels, is to me, a logical road for science to head down. That said, when one starts down a road, it is likely you will hit a few bumps, and come to some curves in the road which may warrant slowing down a bit for as the impact of taking that corner is fully understood. By now most in the agricultural community is aware of the so-called 'terminator' gene. The idea of the gene has met with some strong opposition, and perhaps with good reason. The idea of the gene has little to do with increasing production, but has a lot to do with increasing profits. The gene is designed to make a crop so that the seed pro-

duced will not produce a subsequent crop. That runs counter to the long held tradition of farmers being able to retain seed for subsequent crops. The inability to grow a crop year-toyear is particularly disturbing in terms of farmers in Third World countries where farmers have limited resources to seed. CALVIN Terminator genes are a good way to help ensure seed companies sell prodDANIELS uct, and protect proprietary varieties, ~ but they may not be the best thing in terms of feeding a growing population. And then in the August 2012 edition of 'The Ag Advance' there is a story on controlling diamondback moths. "New on the scene, Oxitec Ltd from Oxford, UK, has developed a new alternative strategy that holds great promise. The British biotech company uses advanced genetic techniques to insert a female-specific “lethality gene” into the moth genome. This allows for large-scale production of Oxitec males to be released into a specific target area. They mate with wild females and the resulting female offspring will not reach adulthood.


Due to the extended seeding period in the Northeast this year there is a wide range of crop maturity from field to field. While there are a considerable number of crops that are delayed, some crops actually have the potential to mature earlier than usual. This, combined with a number of unseeded acres and crops that may have been lost to disease or excess moisture stress, will lead to a larger than normal amount of open farm land this fall. To take advantage of this unique situation, producers may want to consider the addition of a winter cereal to their rotation. The benefits to doing so are numerous but will include; having a crop that will start to use some of the excess moisture this fall as well as reduce the number of acres to be seeded in the spring. Growers may also be able to take advantage of some Ducks Unlimited incentive programs. For details on the types of

Recommendations for these practices can be found in the Winter Cereal Production Manual on line at One practice that may change is that producers may want to seed more acres of winter cereals on fallowed land than usual. Normally this practice is not recommended, but this year there may not be much of a choice. If you do want to seed winter cereals on summer fallow you should be aware that this is more risky than seeding into stubble. The increased risk is reflected in Saskatchewan Crop Insurance premiums that are higher to insure a crop for winterkill than if it were seeded on stubble. As well, the deadline to select winterkill insurance is August 25th and this crop must be seeded by September 15th. For more details please contact your local Saskatchewan Crop Insurance office. Another factor that always requires consideration is varietal selection. This is not only important for getting regionally beneficial characteristics but also to ensure marketability of the grain. New high quality varieties are being developed regularly using check-off monies collected by Saskatchewan Winter Cereals Development Commission. To help with varietal selection producers can consult the 2012 Saskatchewan Seed Guide or look at the new online variety selector on the University of Saskatchewan’s web site. Growers who plant winter cereals this fall that come from a non-certified source should be sure to note the variety to avoid confusion at the time of marketing. One final note is on Wheat Streak Mozaic Virus. This virus can be very detrimental to both spring and winter wheat. It is transferred easily by winds from spring to winter wheat and vice versa. There are no pesticides available for control. Cultural control is the only method for preventing the Wheat Streak Mosaic Virus from completing its cycle. This means leaving a two week window between the ripening of spring wheat crops and planting a winter wheat crop. Due to the lateness of some of this year’s crops this may not be possible. Therefore the recommendation would be not to seed winter wheat right next to an immature spring wheat crop. For more information on growing winter cereals, please contact your local Saskatchewan Agriculture regional office or the Agriculture Knowledge Centre.

As the females in the population decline, the local target insect population will follow," details the story. The idea of a 'lethality' gene is one that even has myself, as a supporter of GM technology doing a double-take. While the application of the technology to control insect pests is something which could greatly improve crop production, it is also something that has the potential to be a disaster in the making, whether by a transfer to wild populations or by the technology being ill-used. In a time of terrorism when nerve gases and the potential for viral attacks are already all too real, the mere thought of 'lethality' genes has to be worrisome. The use of GM technology may be the best hope to feed the world of tomorrow but the technology must also be used with caution to avert the stuff of science fiction gone bad.

By Bruce Penton Golf is on the rise in Northern Ireland — as if it needed a boost. Blessed with some of the greatest golf courses in the world, weather that allows play 365 days of the year, a population eager to greet the world traveller and scenery that would make the average person drool, Northern Ireland now has the cherry on top — it’s the home of champions. Irish citizens burst their buttons with pride when talking about their boys who have put Ireland on the world’s golf map in the last six years — and any reference is almost familial in tone. It’s “Rory, Graeme, Darren and Padraig” — last names not needed for these major champions. Not once on a recent week-long journey to Dublin in the Republic of Ireland and later to the rugged north coast of Northern Ireland were the last names of those champion golfers invoked. Does ‘Wayne’ or ‘Sidney’ need an explanation when talking about hockey to a Canadian? Same deal. Golf fans know the story: Rory McIlroy, just 23 and ranked No. 1 in the world, won last year’s U.S. Open title; Graeme McDowell won the same tournament in 2010 at storied Pebble Beach; Darren Clarke won the (British) Open Championship in somewhat of an upset last summer at Royal St. George’s; and Padraig Harrington sparked the majors’ dominance by winning two Opens and a PGA title in 2007 and 2008. All four Irish heroes have committed to playing June 28-July 1 in the Irish Open at Royal Portrush, the Day 3 site of my recent whirlwind five-day dream tour in early May that was set up by Tourism Ireland. Founded in 1888 in County Antrim, Portrush literally sits a stone’s throw from the Atlantic Ocean. Portrush — with its fast fairways and greens, rough filled with gorse and heather and breathtaking scenery — was in splendid condition. Staff are primping it for its late June showcase — the Irish Open, the first major event to be held at the course since the Open Championship in 1951. Wilma Erskine, secretary manager at Royal Portrush, says the club has “a romantic dream of achieving our goal of playing host” to another British Open, perhaps even becoming part of the Open’s course rotation. “The R and A will be look-

The waterwheel at Bushmills in Northern Ireland. ing at us carefully” during the Irish Open this year, she said. The Royal and Ancient (R and A), which runs the Open, currently uses a rota of nine courses — four in England; five in Scotland. With the recent Irish success in the majors, public pressure in the UK has been exerted to bring the Open west across the Irish Sea. Portush is the logical choice if that’s to happen. Portrush will be ready, Erskine promises. “We’ve done a complete renovation of the clubhouse, we have a new practice facility, including a short-game area, we’ve built eight new tees and we’ve lengthened the course to 7,143 yards (from 6,800),” said Erskine. Course irrigation has also been upgraded. “While others were saving (during the recent recession) we were spending,” she said. Royal Portrush, whose course record (61) is held by McIlroy, was near the top of my bucket list when planning my Irish excursion, especially since a recent Golf Digest feature ranked it No. 13 on a list of the “top 20 courses in the world outside of the U.S.” The next day would be even more spectacular, because my schedule was taking me south to Newcastle, a two-hour drive over some of the most scenic countryside one can imagine, to Royal County Down, which merely happens to be No. 1 on that Golf Digest list. We stayed at the posh, castle-like Slieve Donard hotel, a short walk from the Royal County Down course. Greeted warmly by club secretary David Wilson, I found that RCD loves its place in the world of golf — a quiet, historic links that is quite happy to spurn the limelight and exist to provide joy for its members and world golf travellers. It loves staging major amateur events, such as the 2007 Walker Cup that featured McIlroy and Americans Webb Simpson, Rickie

Fowler and Dustin Johnson, but wouldn’t be interested in going after a ‘major’ as the aggressive folks at Portrush are doing. Wilson says Royal County Down is a “traditional links” with dunes more than 5,000 years old and one of the most spectacular views in golf — the stroll over a hill in the middle of the ninth fairway to a view of the town of Newcastle, the Mourne Mountains, and the Irish Sea to the left. After a nice drive over the hill down the right side, it’s advisable to pull out your camera before pulling out your five-iron. The week began at Portmarnock, on the south side of the Portmarnock peninsula, just outside Malahide (a Dublin suburb). This was more like the Emerald Isle I had envisioned — a little rain, a strong wind — but the course was spectacular, and the company of Michael Fitzsimons of Tourism Ireland was just as good. The Grand Hotel offered my wife Barb and I a comfortable start to our week. Portmarnock is flat and easily walkable, but definitely requires some of that “low-ball” game the Europeans talk about and North Americans generally spurn. Malahide was also home to my next stop, the Island Golf Club, with its gigantic dunes. It is bordered by water on three sides and it was only in 1973 that road access to the course was made available. Before that, golfers had to take a boat trip from Malahide, with a dropoff point at what is now the 14th hole. My host, Denis McFerrin, the club’s marketing manager, pointed out a rock plaque the club erected to mark the spot where golfers would disembark before starting their rounds. We were rained on that day, too (“there’s a reason Ireland is green,” a few locals told me during the week), but the sun shone for the next four days. Following play at Portrush and Royal

County Down, the excursion concluded with a most enjoyable round at Ardglass, named Ireland’s “2011 links course of the year.” The remains of a 500-year-old castle is the framework for the pro shop and clubhouse and the course, challenging and probably more fun than the first four I played, offers rugged coastline views on about half the holes. Access to the five courses was a breeze — no more than than a three-hour drive apart. Vehicles drive on the left, of course, but the M1 and M2 motorways are as easy to handle as Canada’s four-lane highways. Treat yourself, however, to countryside driving. Roads are narrow and winding, but you see the real Ireland away from high-volume traffic.

If you go, plan your golf for the early mornings and then visit must-see tourist sites: We toured Trinity College in Dublin where we saw the Book of Kells and the Long Room, with its five million titles. The original Old Jameson Distillery in Dublin, where some of the best Irish whiskey in the world was produced for a couple of hundred years, has been around since 1780 and the one-hour tour offers a tasty conclusion. The Temple Bar section of Dublin is a trendy area where pedestrian traffic reigns and the nightlife is exciting.

and England has to offer. Up the road at Newgrange, we were stunned to learn this World Heritage Site, classified as a passage tomb by archaeologists, is more than 5,000 years old — older than the Egyptian pyramids of Giza or Stonehenge. After sleeping at the quaint Bushmills Inn and golfing at Portrush, we took in two spectacular tourist hotspots within a 30-minute drive. One was Giant’s Causeway, a collection of hexagon-shaped, lava-fed stones that exist, it seems, for people from all over the world to comfortably climb on. A few minutes down the road was Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, but take your hiking boots, because it’s a good 20-minute walk oneway from the parking lot.

First human case of West Nile discovered in Sask

The first human case of West Nile Virus infection this season has been reported in Saskatchewan. The case occurred in an individual from Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region who experienced no symptoms. The infection was detected by Canadian Blood Services when the individual was donating blood. The recent hot, humid conditions throughout much of Saskatchewan have created the ideal conditions for the development of Culex tarsalis mosquitoes, the carrier of West Nile Virus. “Surveillance results show that Culex tarsalis mosquitoes are increasing slightly in some traps in southern Saskatchewan,” Provincial West Nile Virus Co-ordinator Phil Curry said. “We caution the public that these mosquitoes will continue to be active over the next few weeks and some could potentially be infected with the virus.” People are encouraged to take the necessary precautions to protect themselves against mosquitoes bites, especially

at dusk and dawn when Culex tarsalis mosquitoes are most active. “If you’re bitten by a West Nile Virus-infected mosquito, there is a small risk of serious neurological illness like inflammation of the brain and, in rare cases, death,” Chief Medical Health Officer Dr. Saqib Shahab said. “People who develop severe symptoms such as unusually severe headaches or persistent high fever or confusion, need to seek medical attention immediately.” Most people who become infected with West Nile Virus will experience either no symptoms or only mild illness such as fever, headaches and body aches. To reduce the risk of exposure to West Nile Virus, the following precautions are recommended: •using insect repellent containing DEET; •wearing protective clothing; •reducing time outdoors between dusk and dawn;

•regularly cleaning and emptying containers that can collect water such as bird baths and eavestroughs; •clearing yards of old tires and other items that can collect water; •ensuring rain barrels are covered with mosquito screening or are tightly sealed around the downspout; •keeping screens on windows and doors in good repair; and •keeping bushes, shrubs and lawns clear of overgrowth and debris. Updated Surveillance Results, Risk Maps and Weekly West Nile and Culex Reports are posted every Friday on the Ministry of Health’s website at Additional information on protective measures and the West Nile Virus (symptoms, when to seek help) are available at Healthline Online

Legislation to improve services The Government of Saskatchewan has announced that The Ombudsman Act, 2011 and The Advocate for Children and Youth Act will take effect September 1, 2012. “This has been a great opportunity to work with the Ombudsman and the Children’s Advocate to identify improvements to their legislation,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Gordon Wyant said. “Their new powers will assist them in resolving concerns brought to them by Saskatchewan residents in a simpler, quicker and more collaborative manner.” The Advocate for Children and Youth Act maintains all existing

powers of the Children’s Advocate and better defines the position’s powers and duties. This includes furthering the distinction between ‘children’ and ‘youth,’ allowing the Advocate to conduct research into children’s rights, and clarifying the requirement for children and youth to be given information about the services of the Advocate. “Achieving this stand alone legislation is a significant milestone in our maturation as an independent office that coincides with our 18th Anniversary this fall,” Children’s Advocate Bob Pringle said. “We are eager to celebrate this development

and look forward to realizing the expanded responsibilities found in this new Act.” The Ombudsman Act, 2011 maintains all existing powers of the Ombudsman and better defines the position’s powers and duties. “The Act takes several steps forward,” Ombudsman Kevin Fenwick said. “Our health jurisdiction now includes certain affiliates such as special care homes. Also, the ability to review matters at the invitation of non-jurisdictional agencies puts the Act at the leading edge of ombudsman legislation in Canada.”

Sun shines on Blaine Lake Centennial events

Continued from page 1 “We travel around the province as provincial representatives and cabinet

ministers but when you come to your home community it is a very special thing,” said Cheveldayoff.

The Silver Sage Ranch chuckwagon.

The choice of a wheat stook for the community’s monument resonated with Cheveldayoff as it was agriculture that started the community and made it what it is today. “It’s a reflection on our past ... it exemplifies the agriculture base that this community was built on and it gives us something to reflect on and talk to our kids about,” said Cheveldayoff. In planning the centennial, a committee was struck to commission a legacy piece of artwork. A call for submissions was put out and Shiplett ultimately won the job. The project proved difficult as the wheat stook was completely foreign to her.

A stook, is a formation of swaths of cut grain stalks in preparation for threshing. About a month and a half of research went into creating the look of the stook -including a trip to the Western Development Museum for a wheat stooking demonstration. Each of the 400 pieces were laser cut to resemble heads of wheat before being bundled up and put into an oven and heated to 650 degrees Celsius to create the gold colour. The pieces were then welded together and the final colouring touches of pink, purple and marmalade were completed using a tiger torch. She had a contractor fab-

ricate the stalks and had them sheared so that they would twist in a natural manner which added hours and hours of labour to the project. To ensure it was safe for a public place, Shiplett spentmore than 350 hours removing sharp edges on the welded pieces. “I wanted them to be as organic as possible,” said Shiplett. Scott Moe, MLA for Rosthern Shellbrook, acknowledged everyone who took the time out to come to Blaine Lake through the weekend. It is the spirit of the people in these communities that accomplish so much in small communities. “It’s this ability for people

in our rural communities to come together and to organize events like this or building hockey arenas or building different facilities in our communities, that we require, that makes our community so special. In turn, our communities coming together makes our province so special,” said Moe. Blaine Lake Mayor Ernie Crowder, took the opportunity to thank the volunteers who took part in the monument committee and those who made the centennial celebration happen. SARM president Dave Marit was also on hand to present Deputy Reeve John Priestly with a plaque honouring the RM for 100 years.

RCMP Alert: Time share scam

The Saskatchewan RCMP Commercial Crime Section would like to advise the public of fraud attempts occurring in Saskatchewan relating to timeshare vacation properties. Reports have been received from Saskatchewan residents who have received calls from timeshare resale companies who offer to sell

their timeshare for them. In some cases, the consumer advertised their timeshare for sale on the internet. The suspect promises a quick sale with a high profit. Various fees are requested up front prior to the final sale for things such as maintenance fees, escrow fees or taxes. Documentation and correspondence with the

victim is conducted on a professional level. The suspect provides the victim with official looking documents which are detailed and may require a signature or witness. This approach is used to provide a level of authenticity to convince victims of the legitimacy of the company and transaction to be carried out.

There are legitimate companies who offer this type of service but timeshare owners should do their homework before providing funds. It is important to remember that people can easily represent themselves as a legitimate company on the internet. Consumers are recommended to check the

company on the Better Business Bureau website or to perform searches on the internet looking for any related complaints. This can be done by querying the company name, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, or any other company information. Many consumers post comments related to scams on websites and discussion


boards. Keep in mind, it is easy to cut and paste a picture of the Better Business Bureau’s logo onto a fraudster’s website. Just because it contains the logo does not mean they are a member. The following websites contain information on current scams: w w w. r c mp - g r c .gc .c a/ scams/index_e.htm

Don’t let slugs force you to relocate -BY ERL SVENDSEN-

I joke that I sold my last house because after 12 years I found myself sharing the garden with a multitude of slimy slugs. That wasn’t really the reason for moving… at least not the only one. Slugs are gastropods not insects, related to snails and clams rather than to flies and beetles. Not to be confused with pear slugs which are insects (the larval form of a sawfly), found on cotoneaster, pear, mountain ash and other related woody plants.

They are nocturnal creatures and the most telling clue that you have slugs in your garden aside from the damage is the silvery trails they leave behind. And their preferred habitat is damp. That’s it, just damp - which unfortunately describe a lot of territory. Growing up on the West Coast where slugs come in many shapes, sizes and colours, I particularly remember the banana slug named for its resemblance to said fruit in colour AND size. Thankfully in most Saskatchewan gardens, you’ll

typically only encounter the diminutive grey garden slug (Deroceras reticulatum): small, 1 - 2 cm long, dark to light grey, shiny and, of course slimy. Don’t let their size fool you. What they lack for in size, they can rapidly make up in number, laying 200 – 300 eggs at a time. And in numbers they are voracious, decimating leafy plants (hostas are their favourite it seems) but also most other garden plants including root crops like potatoes and carrots (unfortunately not dandelions in my experience).

Selling your home is not a long-term solution because slugs and their tiny eggs can move in from the neighbour’s yard, on plants from the nursery or your friends, on borrowed tools and even on the bottom of your shoes. There are ways to fight back. Start by making your garden less hospitable by removing daytime hiding places like wooden boards, bricks, stones, and garden gnomes. Remove all decaying vegetation throughout the season, the fall especially. Trapping slugs is a good

U of S to welcome record numbers of students to residences University of Saskatchewan students will be moving into residence in record numbers this fall thanks to the opening of two more buildings in the university’s College Quarter development, but space is still available for students who are still considering their housing options in Saskatoon. “We’ve had a tremendous response from students not only to our new residence buildings in College Quarter but also to Seager Wheeler residence in McEown Park and Voyageur Place right here on the main campus,” said Martin Gonzalez De Souza, acting director of Consumer Services. “The University of Saskatchewan has made it a priority to accommodate a larger percentage of its student body right here on campus, close to their studies and all of our amenities, and the investment in residence space has proven to be the right one.” As of Aug. 1, almost 700 of the 800 beds available in four College Quarter residence buildings were spoken for. There were 11 beds still available in Seager Wheeler and 75 in Voyageur Place, said Gonzalez De Souza. “We understand that making decisions around univer-


sity accommodation can take time,” he added. “But we want to assure students that there are still options for them right here on campus.” As part of its effort to enrich the experience of its students, the U of S constructed the four residence buildings in College Quarter to anchor what will eventually be a vibrant, pedestrian-friendly community on 145 acres just south of the main campus. The plans for the multi-year College Quarter development call for up to 3,000 undergraduate and graduate student residence spaces along with a mix of retail, academic and recreational facilities Gonzalez De Souza said that the new residences combined with existing facilities mean the U of S will be able to house about 12 per cent of its student population in residence, almost double the percentage of just three years ago. Information about available residence space at the University of Saskatchewan, including rooms for students with disabilities, can be found online at or call (306) 966-6775.

next option. They are attracted to yeasty, fermenting odors. But don’t waste your beer: add a package of bread yeast to a cup of water sweetened with sugar, stir and set aside to bubble away for a couple of hours. Add an inch of the yeast solution to any shallow container (e.g. empty cat-food or tuna tins). Place several in the garden in the early evening, about 10 feet apart. Next morning, empty the containers (hopefully filled with drowned slugs) and repeat. Another option is to place short boards in the garden. In the morning, just scrape any cowering slugs off the bottom-sides into a bucket of soapy water or straight into the garbage. Repeat. Another effective trap is an upside down rind of a half grapefruit. Slugs can’t help themselves and will be found munching away in the morning on the inside. Simply dispose of rind, slugs and all. Repeat. There are a number of control options, most of which are safe to use around the home, your children and pets. Slugs are said to avoid wood ash and coffee grounds (some coffee shops give bags of grounds away for free). If nothing else, they will help enrich your soil. To a slug, crushed baked eggs shells sprinkled around the garden act like razor wire, as does diatomaceous earth (DE), a powdery substance com-

posed of sharp fossilized microscopic hard-shelled algae or diatoms. There are several registered insect and slug control products that are 100% DE (e.g. Safer’s Insectigone). Do not use poolgrade DE. Wear a facemask to avoid breathing in the fine particles when sprinkling around the garden. Reapply after heavy rains. After a meal of iron phosphate (registered slug control product; is safe around children and pets when applied according to label instructions), slugs stop feeding permanently and die. As a last resort, there are several registered metaldehyde slug control products. While very effective, metaldehyde is poisonous to slugs, people and their pets alike and should be used with care.

OBITUARIES ~ Eugene ‘Gene’ Kimbley On August 1, 2012, surrounded by his loving wife and family, Gene Kimbley passed peacefully into the arms of his beloved Lord and Saviour with grace and dignity at the age of 74. Gene is survived by his treasured t wife of 50 years, Patricia; t their three children Kelly (Lorelee) Kimbley, Kim (Lorne) ( Courouble C and Tammy (Randy) Clark. C His pride and joy were his h grandchildren Kara, Brett, Cory, C Shayna, Taylor, Claire, Connor, C Leah, Eric, Tyler, Tanner and Wyatt, and greatn granddaughter g Tessa. Gene is also a survived by brothers and sisters Marcel (Renee), Isidore s (Yvonne), ( Oliver (Debra), Rose (John), Liz (Les), Philip (Dorth( ea) e and Rita (Larry); brothers-in-law e Tom (Helen), Terry (Barb) and Clint (Gloria) and ( numerous nieces and nephews. n He was predeceased by his parents Edward and Marguep rite Kimbley; his sister Adelaide; two infant brothers and his father and mother-in-law Ernest and Eileen Mason. Gene was born on April 23, 1938 in Ile-a-la-Crosse, SK and raised in Beauval, SK. From an early age, Gene loved hunting, fishing and hockey. He left home to attend St. Thomas College in North Battleford in order to further his education and pursue a career in hockey. He achieved his dream of becoming a professional hockey player by signing with the Chicago Blackhawks and playing in the Pacific Coast Hockey League with the old Saskatoon Quakers and Calgary Stampeders hockey clubs. He was a proud member of the Shellbrook Elks Hockey team. He was also inducted into the Prince Albert Sports Hall of Fame as a member of the champion Anavets hockey club. Following his professional hockey career, Gene met and married the love of his life, Patricia Mason. They would have celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on September 8th of this year. Gene’s next career, which suited his love and passion for the outdoors, would also last 50 years; first as a conservation officer, and then as a consultant and senior manager in the natural resources and economic development industries. During this time, Gene and Pat raised a beautiful family while being stationed in a number of Saskatchewan communities including La Ronge, La Loche, Arborfield, Armit, Mistatim, Pelly, Shellbrook and Prince Albert. Four years ago, Gene and Patricia returned to his home community of Beauval where he served as Chief Executive Officer of Primrose Resources Limited Partnership to facilitate economic development in his home and surrounding communities. Gene enjoyed his work so much, he never retired and continued his community enhancement efforts and mentoring right up until his passing. During Gene’s life, he faithfully loved and served Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour. During his walk of faith, Gene had the opportunity to share his testimony with a great number of people all around the world. His relationship with Jesus was inspirational and led to many people accepting Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour. His devotion to ministry was reflected in his involvement with the Full Gospel Businessmen’s Fellowship, becoming a Pastor at Beauval Village Fellowship, and by the way he lived his everyday life. A Funeral Service was officiated by his son-in-law, Rev. Randy Clark on Monday, August 6, 2012 at 1:00 pm at the Beauval School Gymnasium. A wake service was held Sunday August 5, 2012 at 1:00 pm at the Beauval School Gymnasium. In lieu of other tributes, Memorial Donations can be made to the Palliative Care Unit of St. Paul’s Hospital in Saskatoon where doctors, nurses and staff cared so well for Gene and provided such tremendous support to his family. Condolences may be sent to the family at Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Gray’s Funeral Chapel, Lorne Adams, Funeral Director.

It's been too long since we've heard from the Riders It has been an agonizingly long time since we’ve heard from the Saskatchewan Roughriders. In fact when we last heard from the Green & White, they were trying their best to explain how they blew a massive fourth quarter lead for a second-straight week and wound up with a loss. That was Saturday evening, July 28th, after the Hamilton Tiger-Cats came into Mosaic Stadium and roughed up the Riders and stole their lunch money. Since then, it would seem as though you could hear a pin drop around Mosaic Stadium/Taylor Field. Slotback Chris Getzlaf got out of Dodge and visited his brother at his Okanagan sanctuary. Fellow receiver Weston Dressler planned to make the short drive down to his hometown of Bismarck, ND. Others hung around the Queen City to make various player appearances and heal up bumps and bruises. A summer holiday? During FOOTBALL season? Unheard of. But that’s the way it’s gone in this headscratcher of a 2012 CFL campaign. And maybe that’s

Riders R for change

for a dollar,� another fair-goer cautioned. “They don’t have a fourth quarter!� You can bet the Saskatchewan Roughriders don’t like being a punchline. Things were rolling along like a well-oiled, finely-tuned machine during the club’s 3-0 start. We were starting to track the meteoric rise of rookie head coach Corey Chamblin and where his perfect start ranked amongst modern era first-year coaches (Ken Miller was 6-0 in 2008 and Kavis Reed 5-0 in 2011). Then the wheels fell off. A prolonged break during football season is as rare as a $3 bill, or a sighting of the Lochness Monster or the Sasquatch. But, as they say in football, “it is what it is�. We’ll find out soon if the Riders were able to find themselves during their absence. With upcoming road games against Edmonton and B.C. plus a homeand-home set with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on the horizon, very soon we’ll find out for ourselves exactly who the 2012 Saskatchewan Roughriders are.

Canada's Olympic Queen? Clara Hughes We can probably agree that Wayne Gretzky is Canada’s greatest hockey player, that Steve Nash is the best basketball player our country has produced and that Mike Weir is No. 1 in golf. And the greatest Olympian, now that the 2012 London Games are fading into our rear view mirror? Has to be Clara Hughes, a 39-yearold Winnipegger who won nary a medal in 2012 but has a dazzling Olympic record dating back to 1996 that is unparalleled. The amazing thing about Hughes is not only that she has six medals to her lifetime credit, but that they were won in both summer and winter Olympic Games. In this era of sports specialization — of the one-trick placekicker in football and the one-inning relief pitcher — it is awe-inspiring to realize that not only is Hughes among the world’s best in cycling, but also in speedskating. Only four other athletes have ever won medals in both summer and winter games. Hughes will be 41 in 2014 when the next Olympics are held in Sochi, Russia, and she will probably be in attendance in some executive fashion, but competing? Unlikely. But never say never with Clara. She didn’t compete in Summer Games of 2004 or 2008, but has been in every other Olympics — summer and winter — since 1996. She won a couple of bronze medals in cycling in 1996 in Atlanta. She came home with speedskating medals

in three successive Winter Olympics — Salt Lake City in 2002, Turin, Italy in 2006 and Vancouver in 2010 — and surprised absolutely no one when she said she was coming out of retirement to try to make Canada’s cycling team in London. She made the 2012 team, although she failed to add to her accumulation of medals. Nonetheless, Hughes’s story is an inspiring one, especially when you take into account the rest of her life’s travails — a wild teenager involved in drugs, an adult life faced with clinical depression — that she has faced and overcome. Clara Hughes is Canada’s greatest Olympian, a title she will likely hold forever. • Scott Ostler of the San Francisco Chronicle: “if LeBron James were to be knighted for his artistic exploits at the London Olympics, would that be a demotion, from King (James) to lord? • Harrison Mooney of, on Tiger woods’ ex, Elin Nordegren, dating Douglas Murray of the San Jose Sharks: “They have a lot in common too.

CARD OF THANKS Thank you to everyone who showed us overwhelming kindness and support during the illness & recent passing of Elmer Thall (Dad). Dad appreciated every visit & phone call while he was hospitalized. He was very grateful for the care provided to him by his specialist Dr. Klassen over the last few years. We would also like to thank everyone for making the celebration of dad’s life so special, including: Pastor Doug Schmirler for the beautiful service; the Lutheran Church Women for the lovely lunch; the entire staff of Beau”lac” Funeral Home, and specifically to Donna for her professional and personal assistance; grand-daughters Kerri & Kendra Chantelle for the touching music; grand-daughter Chantelle for the eulogy; granddaughter Amanda Burkell and nieces Doris Britski and Sandra Benson for sharing their special memories; the pallbearers who were all so special to Dad; and to the cousins for performing the honour guard. Sandra – we will treasure the memories you captured on the slide show forever! The cards, donations, food, phone calls, visits and Facebook messages to the family after his passing are all greatly appreciated. We extend a huge thanks to Tobi, Tim, Brandon & Riley for always assisting Grandpa & contributing to his happiness in so many ways. As Dad would say “Thanks a million!” Bernice, Myrna, Monica, Margo, Mavis & families.
