Flooding around RM of Blaine Lake It seems that flooding season isn’t over yet. In the RM of Blaine Lake, a significant amount of water is still flowing through the area and causing damage to roads and fields. According to Tony Obrigewitch, Administrator of the RM of Blaine Lake, the damage is fairly widespread. “Every division has roads that have had problems and fields that are flooded,” he said. On the west side of the RM, the water made its way to the area through a channel of waterways before ending up on their doorsteps. “The water comes out of Lac La Peche, Martin’s Lake into Paddling Lake, and then out of Paddling Lake into the Raduga system that comes into the RM of Blaine Lake,” Obrigewitch said. “We were told in spring that Martin’s and La Peche had two feet of excess water that had to come off, which it did, plus all the extra water that we had on our own with the snow.” Eventually the water began backing up into some farm yards, and concerns arose when the water began coming into storage yards and chemical storage buildings. At that point the RM felt they needed to step in and take action. “We made the decision with water security that we should start cutting roads,” Obrigewitch said. “To protect the farm yards and protect the businesses . . . A lot of our east-west roads on the west side through Division 5 and Division 4 and some of Division 3 are gone. “They were overflowing already so we just opened them up to let it go through quicker just to save those yard sites . . . it was that or we probably would have flooded Highway 12 also.” Meanwhile, on the other side of the RM, the water damage continued. “On the east side of the RM we had no option there,” Obrigewitch said. “We had no place to drain the water. It just started coming down from the north and into natural basins along in there, and it’s ending up basically straight east of town here about four or five miles. It has pretty well totally destroyed two farm yards.” According to Obrigewitch, the water damage in that area of the RM is unprecedented. “The one farm yard, she’s been there for 60 plus years and she’s never had water in her yard. Right now the water is running into her basement windows.” The RM of Blaine Lake declared the situation a disaster about a month ago. Representatives from the Provincial Disaster Assistance Program (PDAP) have plans to visit the RM and assess the extent of the damage. Engineers from PDAP will evaluate what needs to be done and how much the repairs will cost. Also, a community meeting is planned for Thursday, June 6, and PDAP will also be available in the area on the Friday in order to assist residents who need to fill out application forms for relief. It’s important to remember that these flooding issues are not contained within each individual RM. When flooding waters are released from one area they need to flow somewhere else, and adjacent communities are often affected.

Aerial photos taken on May 16 capture some of the flooding on the east side of the RM of Blaine Lake.

In Leask, for example, there are areas that are in danger of flooding where waters are being held back, but it is important for the bordering RMs to be on the same page in regards to what they can handle. Culverts must be built to be the same size, or else damage can be done when the water flows from one RM to the next. At least one culvert in Leask is being held back until the RM of Shellbrook’s system is ready for it. “They want to let it go,” said Earl Stewart, Councillor of Division 2 of the RM of Shellbrook. “But we want to make sure our system is going to be able to handle their extra water.” Stewart says that they have been working hard to clear the channels in Shellbrook’s system, and that they should be ready to take on some of the extra water very soon. “It did overflow on its own,” Karen Beauchesne, Administrator of the RM of Shellbrook said regarding the gated culvert. “I know they did speak to us and they said if we thought that it was doing too much damage they would try . . . and

slow it down. But so far it’s good. We were able to handle that.” The RM of Leask gives way to the RM of Shellbrook about eight miles south of town. When the water is let through it will travel up those eight miles and head right through the Hidden Hills of Shellbrook golf course before it continues heading north. It is important that everyone on that chain is on the same page regarding how much water can be handled in each area. Stewart says that, at this point, things are looking pretty good in the RM of Shellbrook, and that it’s in better shape than some of the surrounding areas. “We have some bad soft spots in our roads, but that’s just a matter of time to get them fi xed up, and they’re starting to dry out. Things are 50% better than they were a month ago.” As far as the RM of Blaine Lake goes, a lot of recovery work still lies ahead. “The map that we’ve got showing the roads that are going to need repair and/or culverts . . . it looks like you’re in a bingo hall,” Obrigewitch said. That may be so, but it has been anything but fun and games for those who have been affected by the floods.

Hive monitoring project put into use

Peter Gillespie (left) and Murray Hannigan work to install the monitoring system at the site of the hives. A group of electrical engineering students from the University of Saskatchewan had a sweet idea this semester when asked to come up with their final design project. Their product is geared towards honey farmers, and it is meant to make their lives easier by sensing various types of data at

the hives and transmitting the information back to the farmer’s home. The group includes Nicole Adams, who hails from Shellbrook, as well as Matthew and Peter Gillespie and Jarad Hermanson. All four students will be graduating from their programs this spring.

The system involves various sensors being installed at the actual site of the hives, as well as hardware and software being set up at the farmer’s home. It is necessary for the product to be very durable, as the sensors will stay outside with the hives year-round. Eventually, the group says that any type of sensor could be used, and farmers would be able to keep track of anything from temperature to wind conditions at their hives. For now, the group will focus on weight, as that seems to be the most practical application of the product. The equipment at the site will use solar power in order to function. One of the most interesting aspects of the student’s project is the way that the information travels from the hive to the house. An independent wireless transmission is set up that sends the information directly to the beekeeper’s computer. Peter Gillespie says that this is the best option for making their system work. “Cell phones and the internet jump out immediately, but there are a lot of solutions out there,” he said. “If you know a little bit about it, they’ll work really well and save money. (There is) no internet jack available in the field.” The signal should be able to travel up to about 10 kilometres, and can be relayed from one hive site to the next until it reaches the farmer’s home. Murray Hannigan of Hannigan’s Honey is putting the prototype to the test. He is having the system installed at two of his hive sites in order to find out how efficient and practical the product really is. The first sensors will be installed on pallets of four hives, and will transmit the weight of the pallet to Hannigan’s home computer on a daily basis. Hannigan says that keeping track of a hive’s weight can be extremely valuable in the beekeeping business. “Hives . . . can start starving on us, or we can have hives that are actually getting too full and

need attention. A hive that is too full will swarm,” Hannigan says. “Knowing weights on a daily basis, then we can use solutions to deal with that. Either feed colonies if they need it or to give more boxes to colonies if they need it.” Hannigan’s hives are currently housed at 130 different sites that span a vast geographical area. The territory ranges from 60 km to the north, 60 km to the south, 30 km to the west and 10 km to the east. To drive to each of these locations daily would be a herculean task, and even when sites are visited in person, the measurements are done by lifting and feeling the hives, which gives a less accurate reading than the sensors can provide. When asked how far the group thinks they can take this idea, the consensus is that they won’t be going into mass production anytime soon. One reason for this is that the group has not really invented anything new that they can patent. Instead, they have come up with a unique integration of concepts that are already out there. Also, the group feels that they have actually made the product too cost efficient for the customer, which would make it tough for them to make a profit. Once the initial set up is complete, they say, there would be no steady income for them to reap. Finally, they need to make sure that the product actually works on a larger, more practical scale. They have done all the tests and have achieved great results, but to put the product into actual use with a real-life beekeeper is something different entirely. Also, from the beekeeping side of it, they still need to see if there is value in the product and if it is able to give true readings as to what is going on at the hives. All in all, the project was a success. The student’s achieved their academic goals, and now the product is being put into use in a real-world setting. Taking the product any further at this point would simply sweeten the pot.

W.P. Sandin celebrates 50 years

A barn stands at the Riverview Arts site. Pat Grayston has converted the space into her art studio, and will use this location to host a part of the Parkland Artisan tour. The event kicks off on Friday, June 7 with the Hootenanny on the Hill.

Parkland Artisan Tour to take place this weekend The area is gearing up for another installment of the Parkland Artisan Tour. The event kicks off with the Hootenanny on the Hill event on Friday, June 7 at Riverview Arts, and continues on Saturday and Sunday at various locations. The event began back in 2005, coinciding with Saskatchewan’s centennial celebrations. A group of local artists who had seen the various art tours that were going on at the time decided that it was time for Shellbrook to have its own tour. The group met in order to pool together ideas, and the spark for the tour was lit. The founders of the event wanted to make sure that they learned from other tours. They discussed what they liked and disliked about what they had seen in the past, and used that information in order to come up with a few guiding principles. They wanted the artists that were showcased to provide people with art that was different, interesting, and that was of good quality. To help make this happen, they decided that before allowing a new artist to join the tour, their art must first be seen and approved by at least three members of the committee. This has helped to keep the standard of art high throughout the years. Another aspect of the tour that the committee addressed involved the amount of driving that was needed in order to see the various artists. The committee wanted travel to be limited for those taking in the tour, so they decided to have the artists gather at a few designated sites. This way, a trip to one spot allows for the viewing of a number of different presentations, and a group of carpooling patrons has the ability to spread out and each spend time with a different artists. The tour often includes a number of demonstrations that allow the patrons to see how the art is made. Pat Grayston, one of the founders of the tour, says that this stems from her years as an educator. The artists are encouraged to share what they know, and to educate the people who come to see the art. They want them to see that they too can do this, and at certain times throughout the event people are invited to actually get their hands dirty and help make some art themselves. One of the goals of the tour is to keep things fresh from year to year. Some people attend the tour on a yearly basis, and Grayston says that it is important that the tour gives them something new each time they visit. In some cases this means new artists getting

involved, and in other cases this means that repeat artists will have to bring something new to the table. “Each year I progress and I try to push myself further, so even if they come to see my work (again) they’re going to see something that’s just a bit edgier or just a bit more creative or just a bit more realistic,” Grayston said. The event this year will span four different locations. The first site is the Honeywood Heritage Nursery, where Ruby Hannigan and Barb Grimm will be bringing their honeycomb and molded beeswax candles to be displayed. Doug Peake, the wood turner, will also be on site, as well as quilters Henriette Schultz and Shirley Cromarty. Carol Hofferd, who specializes in stained glass mirrors, ornaments, mosaics and kiln work, will round out the group that is presenting at Honeywood. The second site is located 9.5 kilometres south of town on the Wingard Ferry Road. Those who travel to this location will be treated to a presentation involving hand blown glass and design. Ron Anderson will be giving demonstrations of glass fusing clocks and making glass beads with a bench torch. Riverview Arts will also host a number of artists for the tour, and this is the location where Pat Grayston’s art will be available for viewing. Alongside her will be Anna Wallbillig, who uses a number of different techniques in order to create unique articles of clothing. Madelaine Walker of Saskatoon, an experienced weaver, spinner, dyer and knitter, will also be at the site. Earrings, necklaces, pendants, buttons and other one of a kind items will be on display at Riverview Arts. These unique items have been carved by Richard Stieb out of shed horns and antlers. Dolores Miller’s jewelry and stained glass will be on display, as well as Donna McKeand Smith’s charcoal, pencil and ink drawings. Rosella Carney will also be present at the site. Rosella is a Cree cultural arts and crafts teacher who grew up learning the values and skills of a traditional life style and now teaches these traits to others. The final site is located right in the town of Shellbrook and will feature Sylvia Jones, who has been working with pottery for over 25 years. She studied at the University of Saskatchewan, and now produces functional wheel-thrown and hand-crafted items. For an entire listing of artists, times and locations, visit

W.P. Sandin held a celebration barbeque on May 31 in order to honour the 50th anniversary of the first class to graduate through its doors. The event was organized by the current grade 12 class as part of a project about the process of running a formal meeting. Nicole Philp, an English teacher at the school, says that the assignment ended up teaching the students about more than just meetings. “They’ve learned a formal meeting process, which was the goal, but they’ve also learned how to work with community. They had to, for example, write a letter to the town office asking for permission to barricade the streets, and they had to put down a deposit

to rent the tables and little things like that. They’ve had to jump over those hurdles to be able to host this.” Besides the barbeque itself, the event included live music, tours of the school, and a number of events for the children in attendance, including face painting, skipping ropes, hula hoops and crafts. A large crowd turned out to enjoy some lunch and take part in the festivities. Philp says that even though she oversaw the project, she tried to give the students a lot of freedom and to let them figure things out on their own. “They have taken this on by themselves and done a really good job,” she said.

Major lessons from minor sports

The breeze did its part to keep the bugs away while the sun shone through it just enough to keep everyone warm. Teams travelled from all over the area to take in Shellbrook’s annual Sports Days last weekend, and the ball tournament allowed for a great showcase of minor sports in the region. Watching the young athletes perform provided a great reminder that there are many lessons to be learned from minor sports. That ball can come in pretty hot out of the pitcher’s hand. Standing in the batter’s box, with your teammates watching from the dugout, with your parents and friends watching from the stands, with the base runners silently pleading for a hit, can JON be intimidating. Some young SVEC people welcome the challenge. They look forward to their next ~ chance to help the team win. For Reporter others it can be a frightening experience. Perhaps the player is new to the situation and still uncomfortable with it. It’s usually evident—the batter will stand as far away from the plate as the painted chalk will allow. With the windup and the pitch the feet will creep even farther away from the strike zone, the batter’s pained expression pleading for a walk. Sometimes the prayer will be answered, the amateur pitcher will be unable to find the zone, and the batter will get to take first base. Other times we see a duck away from a strike, then two, and perhaps a token swing that cuts silently through the air. The walk back to the bench after such an attempt can seem a lonely mile long. The lesson here lies in the continuation of the batting order. In the reality of standing in the on deck circle a few innings later, when the batter ahead of you gets on base or doesn’t, and it’s again your turn to stand in front of the catcher and attempt to perform. The question is asked with each practice swing, and when the There are moment of truth inevitably arrives a young individual is given the oppormany lessons tunity to find out what he or she is to be learned made of. Often times, with each attempt, the feet dig-in a little closer to from the plate, the stance relaxes slightly minor sports. and loosens, the cuts at the ball grow a little sharper and eventually find their mark. Sports provide us with a forum to repeat these daunting experiences over and over again, with the end result in each situation (though it may not seem that way at the time) being relatively inconsequential. No one’s life or family or livelihood is on the line, but the lessons that these experiences provide us with are very real. They prepare us for future situations where the same triggers are forced to fire, where decisions need to be made and actions need to be taken, and where the results may make a difference in your life or the lives of people you love. In some small way that hit during a ball tournament when you were young, the one in the bottom of the last inning after a couple of strikeouts when you blooped a single over the second baseman’s head and batted in the winning run, might help. Not because you won the game, but because you made the decision to take another swing at it after so much had gone wrong. Aside from all the victories, there are perhaps even more lessons in the defeats. The ones where the sun has already set, no chances remain and there is nothing left to do but endure. Sports can show us a view where we see nothing but total darkness, and just when we think it will last forever, the first slivers of dawn cut over the horizon and provide a little light.

Bruce also noted the cost to farmers as a result of Bill One might not agree with his position but you do admire C-45 that changed the Canadian Grain Commission. A re-

duction in federal funding to $5.4 million from $37 million will surely hurt producers. Similarly, the tripling of inspection fees to $1.60 per tonne and a 33-fold increase in elevator licensing fees will add an additional $2,750 cost to a 5,000-acre farm, Bruce noted in his column. He also noted the cuts to the Community Pasture Program done without consultation that not only will put endangered plants and animals at further risk but also will cost livestock producers. “How much money will be saved? About $10 million a year, maybe a third of that in Saskatchewan,” Bruce wrote. “Who will foot the bill? Farmers again.” Similarly, the elimination of Indian Head’s 112-year-old Agroforestry Development Centre that has grown 610 million trees for farmsteads and shelterbelts across Western Canada saves a paltry $3 million a year _ a tiny saving to Canadian taxpayers at the expense of farmers. And while Ritz has announced tougher rules to prevent outbreaks of E. coli at slaughterhouses, Bruce noted past cuts to the Canada Food Inspection Agency makes it tough for the CFIA to enforce those rules. “Saskatchewan voters _ more than half of whom voted Tory in the last election _ must be wondering what they did to deserve this,” Bruce concludes. Of course, you may not agree with all of Bruce’s conclusions, either. But, as always, he puts forth some interesting arguments.


CTF urges pension cancellation for crooked politicians The Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) applauded the introduction of a Private Members Bill by MP John Williamson, (Conservative – New Brunswick Southwest). The bill, entitled The Protecting Taxpayers and Revoking Pensions of Convicted Politicians Act, would take away the Parliamentary pension from any MP or senator convicted of a serious crime, including stealing from taxpayers. The CTF also called on the Harper government to make this a government bill, and pass it before Parliament adjourns for the summer. “There’s few things Canadians find more insulting than having to foot the bill for a generous pension plan for a politician who has ripped off taxpayers,” said CTF Federal Director Gregory Thomas. “By adopting this bill as government policy and making it law before the House adjourns the Prime Minister would send a message to Parliament and to all Canadians that expense fraud won’t be tolerated and crooked politicians will pay a heavy price.” The CTF has long called for a “Lavigne Rule,” named after former Quebec Senator Raymond Lavigne, who resigned with a full pension just prior to being convicted of fraud for stealing from taxpayers. “The best part of this bill is that it takes effect immediately. If passed, politicians currently under investigation by the RCMP won’t be able to ‘pull a Lavigne’ and resign

at the last minute saving their rich pension,” continued Thomas. “But that’s only if this bill is passed.” The pension measure is one of five accountability recommendations in the CTF’s Accountability Act 2.0, a proposed package of reforms to clean up Parliament Hill and

The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) is highly critical of the provincial government, 3sHealth and regional health authorities’ decision to privatize health care laundry services in Saskatchewan by handing it to the Alberta-based corporation, K-Bro. The decision calls for building a central private, for-profit laundry facility in Regina with private distribution hubs in Saskatoon and Prince Albert. “This decision is a total privatization of health care laundry that will affect the whole province of Saskatchewan,” said Tom Graham. “Not only are Saskatchewan’s communities losing local health care laundry services and the economic benefits that local jobs create, but money will leave this province and go to an Alberta corporation and profits for shareholders.”

Communities directly affected by the decision to privatize public health care laundry services are: Moose Jaw, Prince Albert, Regina, Weyburn, Yorkton, and Saskatoon. Publically-operated health care laundries will be permanently closed in two years. “Patient-centred care should be about patients, not profits for private companies,” says CUPE Health Care Council President Gordon Campbell. “With a private, for-profit company in control, how can we guarantee that the best practices of infection control will be followed?” CUPE is calling on the provincial government to reverse their decision and keep laundry health care services public. CUPE represents approximately 300 laundry health care workers across the province.

Town Council meeting highlights

Noreen Bryson-Mudry of the Street Fair Committee made a presentation to Council in order to request a number of items pertaining to this year’s event. The selected date is Saturday, August 24, with a few events taking place on the Friday evening. The Council approved the committee’s request to use barricades to block Main Street from the turning loop to 2nd Ave; 4th Ave East for the volleyball tournament; Railroad Ave West to the Liquor Board; and back alley to back alley down 1st Ave East and West. The committee also requested permission to borrow various

items such as picnic tables, garbage cans and snow fences from the town. The volleyball tournament is slated to begin on the Friday evening at 5 p.m. * Changes have been made to the town’s tax holiday on residential and business properties. The policy states that the Town of Shellbrook offers a three year abatement on the municipal portion of the improvement, and only if it meets the requirements listed in the policy. The abatement does not include taxes on the following: municipal land, school, hos-

pital, BID or any special levies added to the tax roll (ie. curb and gutter). Some of the major changes to the policy are as follows: For new construction of residential buildings, the tax holiday will be available to property owners on a one-time basis only. The tax holiday will apply to the primary residence only and is available only if construction commences within one year following the receipt of an approved building permit. For both residential and business properties, the tax holiday will begin January 1 of the year following the permit date. Also, if an existing building is being demolished to accommodate the construction of a new building, the tax holiday will take effect on January 1 of the year following the building permit being approved, providing the permit is applied for within one year of the demolition. Additions on residential buildings will qualify only if the increase in assessment is equal to at least 75% of the original assessment (changed from 50%), and the addition is attached to the existing residence. This does not apply to an attached garage.

In regards to owner operated premises, the following changes have been made: Subject to Council approval, following a recommendation from town administration; new businesses that occupy existing buildings that have been vacant will qualify for the reductions in taxes as follows: 50% in the first year of operation (changed from 75%); 25% in the second year of operation (changed from 50%); 12.5% in the third year of operation (changed from 25%). In regards to rented premises: Subject to Council approval, following a recommendation from town administration; new businesses that occupy existing buildings that have been vacant for more than one year will qualify for the reductions in taxes via a grant payable to the business operator equal to: 50% of the annual taxes on the premises at the end of the first year of operation (changed from 75%); 25% of the annual taxes on the premises at the end of the second year of operation (changed from 50%); 12.5% of the annual taxes on the premises at the end of the third year of operation (changed from 25%).

Such varieties won’t hit

the production levels achieved in an Iowa corn field, but to a Prairie farmer looking for a high-value crop to grow in rotation with canola, corn can still be enticing. The conversation soon grew to include some talk about soybeans. They are another crop option farmers are looking at in Saskatchewan in areas that only a decade ago they would never have even considered it. Again the value of soybeans make them attractive, if they can be successfully grown thanks to new varieties. If one wants to take a slightly longer view of things, we hear a lot about global weather patterns changing. Many see our weather evolving to something more akin to the weather of Montana and the Dakotas. While that change will bring with it challenges, it will also lend itself to growing more corn and soybeans. The Prairies may have been broke to grow wheat, and Canada may have earned a reputation as ‘Bread Basket to the World’ because of that wheat, but things are changing. Cereal grains are a hard way to make money, and producers have embraced canola, pulse crops, and explored everything from borage to quinoa looking for alternatives to wheat, oats and barley. Ivan suggested the search might be over thanks to the expanding ranges for corn and soybeans. I would have to agree, that along with canola, the three are likely to hold the interest of farmers as the crops with the best potential to generate significant gross returns per acre.

Crop report for May 21 to 27, 2013

Hail Insurance

Great strides were made in seeding progress this week with 67 per cent of the 2013 crop now seeded, according to Saskatchewan Agriculture’s Weekly Crop Report. The five-year (20082012) average for this time of year is approximately 70 per cent seeded. All regions of the province made significant headway this week: 67 per cent of the crop is seeded in the southeast; 85 per cent in the southwest; 51 per cent in the northeast; 69 per cent in the

northwest; 60 per cent in the east-central area; and 65 per cent in the westcentral area. Seeding was temporarily halted in some regions over the weekend as the majority of the province received rainfall. The Coronach and Humboldt areas received the most rainfall with more than two inches. Provincially, topsoil moisture on cropland is rated as 13 per cent surplus, 81 per cent adequate and six per cent

short. Hay land and pasture topsoil moisture is rated as seven per cent surplus, 81 per cent adequate, 11 per cent short and one per cent very short. Livestock water availability is adequate, pasture conditions are rated as 20 per cent excellent, 56 per cent good, 20 per cent fair and four per cent poor. Farmers are busy seeding, controlling weeds and moving cattle to pasture. Follow the Crop Report on Twitter at @SKGovAg.

USA misses deadline, stock growers unhappy The United States government has missed a World Trade Organization deadline to end discriminatory practices against Canadian beef, and the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association (SSGA) is not happy. The WTO had given the US until May 23 to bring its Country Of Origin Labeling (COOL) laws into compliance with international trade standards. That deadline has passed, with no positive action from the Americans. The SSGA urges Canada to get set to retaliate. “This is more than disappointing, it’s outrageous,” says SSGA President Harold Martens. “Canadian producers, through their associations and the gov-

ernment, have been working for months to restore fair trading rules to the beef industry. Not only has the US administration failed to comply, they may make matters worse.” The COOL measures are ostensibly to help consumers identify where their meat was born, raised, and slaughtered. The WTO had ruled that the laws place expensive administrative and logistical burdens on US handlers of imported hogs and cattle. As a result, farms, feedlots, and packing plants hesitate to buy beef cattle that come from Canada or Mexico. Rather than take down the barriers, the US has proposed new regulations that add to the already burden-

some red tape. “This is costing our industry over $640 million a year,” Martens says. “And that doesn’t include the $2 million from our checkoff fund that we’ve had to spend fighting this.” The federal government is weighing its retaliation options. “We’re waiting to see what the government comes up with,” says Martens. “We expect the measures to be aggressive, and we’re fully prepared to support them. The Canadian beef industry and the whole integrated North American beef market are being threatened, and we will not back down until fair trade is restored.”

Museum Honours Homemakers Shellbrook, Saskatchewan – April 28, 2013 – In celebration of its 40th anniversary, the Shellbrook Heritage Museum is writing articles focusing on a part of its collection. The previous article was about homesteaders and this one honours homemakers. The traditional division of labour assigned the responsibilities of homemaker to women and a folk saying that recognizes the demands of homemaking is “Man may work from sun to sun but woman’s work is never done.” Daily, homemakers were responsible for childcare, healthcare, housekeeping duties, and making meals. Weekly the local pattern was most likely Monday laundry, Tuesday ironing, Wednesday baking, Thursday shopping, Friday sewing, and Saturday housecleaning. If the homemaker was hosting the Sunday church service in their home, Saturday housecleaning may have had extra burdens. A homemaker of 33 years, Mrs. Zelickson of Hirsch estimated her hours and informed the newspaper the Nor’West Farmer she had “put in 48,180 hours scrubbing, cleaning and washing.” This accounts for 4 hours a day. In her other hours, “I have cooked 361,351 meals, baked 78,800 loaves of bread, 12,045 cakes, 5,158 pies, preserved 3,300 quarts of fruit, churned 13,728 pounds of butter and raised 4,950 poultry.” This was all manual labour; knuckle bruising scrub boards rather than washing machines, blistering heavy irons rather than electric steam irons, demanding woodstoves rather than electric stoves, inefficient brooms rather than efficient vacuums, pedal-powered treadle sewing machine rather than electric, etc. A homemaker with milk cows may or may not do the milking but would most likely separate out the cream, churn the butter, and perhaps make cottage cheese with the skim milk. Even the water was manual labour. Blessed was the homemaker who had a well with a pump and did not have to draw every bucket up by hand. The seasons also had a pattern. In the spring, the essential vegetable garden needed planting and weeding. In summer, garden produce and wild berries needed to be harvested. Berry picking could be a social event and some families would camp overnight if the berry patch was far from home. Food

not eaten fresh would be preserved; fruit would be canned and cucumbers and beans would be pickled. In the fall, the root vegetables, potatoes, carrots, parsnips, onions, and beets, would be harvested and stored in the cold room or root cellar. If the poultry was butchered early, it would be canned, while a late butchering could be frozen. Fall threshing crews of 10-20 men would need three square meals a day plus field lunches in the afternoon and the larger the homestead, the longer the crew would stay. The onset of winter meant constantly feeding the woodstove to heat the house. Having a logger for a husband was a mixed blessing. While the income was welcome, an absent husband meant any outside chores, wood and livestock, became the homemakers if she was not doing those chores already. It is not surprising that “homemakers” often wished they were just homemakers, and not also farm labourers. Why did women stay homemakers? Their apron strings were tied to their husbands purse strings through legislation. Joan Champ writes in “The Unenviable Circumstances of Women in Saskatchewan Before 1920” that “Pioneer women were vital to economic success of the family farm in Saskatchewan. Sandra Rollings-Magnusson argues that, because of this, the federal and provincial governments enacted and maintained legislation that limited the independence of women in an effort to ensure that women would remain tied to the farm and contribute to the grain economy.” Women were non-persons—the Dominion Election Act decreed “No woman, idiot, lunatic or criminal shall vote.” As well as the endless physical work, some homemakers suffered from the psychological effects of isolation. The University of Saskatchewan found women eager to join their Homemaker Club initiative modeled on the Women’s Institutes in Ontario. Champ writes the clubs “quickly became agents of adult education, providing courses in the skills of homemaking.” They also provided treasured opportunities for socializing. Like homesteaders, homemakers practiced a long list of virtues that Shellbrook continues to benefit from, especially the virtues of resilience, compassion, and grace.

Talbot to be inducted into the Sask. Baseball Hall of Fame The Late Rupert Earl Talbot of Canwood will be inducted, posthumously, into the individual category of the Saskatchewan Baseball Hall of Fame as a player on Saturday,

August 17, 2013, at Battleford, SK. Rupert was born March 17, 1898, at Stanstead County, Georgeville, Quebec. He moved with his family to Saskatoon,

Barbeque fundraiser

Saskatchewan in 1912. Rupert attended school in Saskatoon and in 1924 began his baseball career as a catcher and umpire, gaining a position as head of the CPR Sluggers. In 1924, the Saskatoon paper headlined “Talbot Takes Lead In Race For City Loop Hit Honours” The article read, ”Rube” Talbot, the hard hitting catcher of the CPR is topping the City League sluggers with a batting average of .410 replacing Steve Ayres of the Elks, and Mel Kerr of the Fifth, the two team leading swat smiths at the end of the first series. In gaining the position at the head of the sluggers, “Rube” slammed out 34 hits in 83 times at bat. He increased his mark four points since the last average was issued. Rube was the recipient of the Gold Medal for batting honours that year. He caught for the outstanding pitcher Ho-

sea, and excelled in putting runners out trying to steal second base. In 1924, Rube had the opportunity to go professional but declined. While in British Columbia for a short time, Rupert was thrilled to catch for the Campbell River Loggers He played his last tournament when he was 50 years old. For many years Rupert umpired in the Canwood area as well as in Saskatoon. Baseball was the love of Ruperts life. Rupert also enjoyed curling and bowling. In 1928, Rupert became a member, and later became a life member, of the Canwood Elks Lodge #183. He held many lodge offices, driving horses 20 miles in summer and winter in the 1930’s and 40’s to do so. Rupert Earl Talbot died September 26, 1997.

Annual Sports Days a hit in Shellbrook

Shellbrook’s annual Sports Days were held last weekend under sunny skies that allowed for everyone to comfortably enjoy the festivities. A ball tournament was held on June 1-2, and many teams travelled from around the area to participate. Many age groups were incorporated into the competition, and everyone from young children to grown adults were invited to participate in the fun. Trevor Miller, coach of the Shellbrook Bantam Girls, was in high spirits following a solid performance by his team. “It’s a beautiful day for ball,” he said. “And it’s good for the community. It’s a great day.” The large amount of participating teams came together as sort of a mixed bag in order to make each individual tournament work. The coaches of the local teams were responsible for putting together the games at each level, and sometimes competition was hard to come by. The Bantam Girls, for instance, had trouble finding other Bantam teams to play, so they ended up inviting some Midget teams (which is a level up) to enter into their tournament. “It’s just going to make us a better team,” said Rhonda Miller, who also coaches the Bantam Girls team. “To play those teams that have a little more experience, that’s how you improve your game.” From the Men’s side of things, the Cubs defeated Spiritwood in the A Side finals. In the finals on the B Side, the Prince Al-

bert Blue Jays defeated Dry Creek, and on the C Side it was the Prince Albert Rebels over the Saskatoon Midget Selects. The Slo Pitch finals saw Tippy Canoe beat the Kingfisher Howlers in the A Side game. Aside from the ball, the event also included a Steer and Heifer Jackpot. Janine Kernaleguen, the judge of the event, was very impressed with the competition. “These were definitely the toughest classes I’ve done in a long time,” she said. “Everything was really close, (I was) basically splitting hairs, picking out little tiny faults to separate them.” Kernaleguen grew up in Melfort where she showed cattle in the 4-H Club. She went on to judge a few different 4-H shows and the Cinderella Classic in Saskatoon. “Basically I love doing these jackpots, though. There is amazing quality of cattle.” Some other events also took place throughout the two day celebration. There were games brought in for the children in attendance, and the barbeque was kept hot throughout the entire weekend. A dunk tank gave community members the chance to douse some of their colleagues, teachers and even their local MLA. A tent was also set up, with members of the Kinsmen Club running the bar. Saturday evening’s entertainment included DJ Executive Chef, who kept things lively well into the night.

More doctors practicing in Sask. Saskatchewan residents have better access to physician care, thanks to fourteen more doctors who are now practising in Saskatchewan. These doctors, who entered the Saskatchewan International Physician Practice Assessment (SIPPA) in January, recently passed all of the program’s requirements and are now practicing in communities throughout the province. “We continue to recruit our own medical graduates from Saskatchewan’s College of Medicine, but we appreciate and rely on physicians from outside our own borders,” Minister Responsible for Rural and Remote Health Randy Weekes said. “I’m very pleased these internationally trained doctors have passed their assessment and are now providing care to Saskatchewan residents, further stabilizing the physician workforce throughout the province.” In addition to the new doctors from the January SIPPA program who are now practicing medicine, the May SIPPA intake is completely full.

Many of the candidates were trained in countries like Egypt, Nigeria, the Philippines and Iran. While all of them were successful at obtaining a seat in SIPPA, they still have to successfully complete the program over the next few months. If successful they will move forward to the Clinical Field Assessment phase of the program in ten health regions around the province. “This is certainly encouraging. Not only is word getting out about SIPPA within Canada, it is spreading world-wide as we see more and more SIPPA candidates who were trained in a variety of countries coming to Saskatchewan in an effort to make it their home and practice medicine,” said Ed Mantler, saskdocs CEO. “It is good to see that many of them come from within Canada because saskdocs has been working hard at reaching Doctors within Canada to tell them about the many opportunities that await them here.” Keeping Saskatchewan medical graduates continues to be a high priority. “Even if we were 100 per cent successful at retaining every University of Saskatchewan (U of S) medical graduate, we would still have to recruit out of province, the demand is that great,” said Mantler. Pivotal to the success of the SIPPA program is the work of its administrator, Continuing

Professional Learning at the U of S College of Medicine. “SIPPA is a made- in -Saskatchewan solution, and it is working. We are delighted by the success of our candidates in their clinical field assessments. We will continue to work in partnership with saskdocs and our provincial government to ensure continued success for SIPPA and the IMGs who now have the opportunity to live and work in Saskatchewan” said Dr. Penny Davis, Medical Director of SIPPA for the College of Medicine, University of Saskatchewan. SIPPA expanded last year to assess doctors from all countries as long as they meet the assessment criteria. Since its inception in 2011, 68 more doctors have passed the assessment and are now practicing medicine in Saskatchewan. A list of the communities and health regions in which they are practicing is provided in Attachment A . Saskdocs continues to recruit physicians to the province in collaboration with the health regions through: direct recruitment initiatives; establishing relationships with medical students and residents; advertising locally, nationally and internationally; and, attending career fairs at home and out of province. Family physician IMGs seeking more information on SIPPA and the opportunities that are currently available are encouraged to contact saskdocs at or call toll-free (in North America) 1-888-415-3627 or 306-9335000.
